This is my second time posting and writing a fan-fic (the other time being a short story for a Guardians of Ga'Hoole forum), so I am relatively new at this. Please enjoy the story!
P.S. I may change the title of the story once it progresses, so please don't get mixed up with which story is which if I decide to do so! Just wanted you all to know! Oh, and I would love any feedback on how the story is and how it could be better, since I may want to become a writer once I grow up. And by the way, I am thirteen in case you were wondering. Alright, enough with my ramblings! Let the fun begin!
Chapter One: A Chase Begins
The night was dark and eerie. The clouds hung low to the ground while the Serperior, Charizard, Pikachu, and Cyndaquil all raced along, in a hurry to run away from the horrible humans chasing them. The Pokemon seemed to be in a distressed state, and the Cyndaquil's paw seemed to be badly hurt. They hurried down an alleyway in the effort to make it back to their safe home, but the humans behind them were racing towards them with eager hands. They were scared.
"Guys, hurry! We have almost made it!" the Pikachu said, trembling with fear.
"Oh no! It is starting to rain," the Charizard said in a trembling voice, "the fire on my tail mustn't go out!"
"Mine either!" Cyndaquil wailed.
"Don't worry...we will make it! Follow me!" The Serperior yelled over the harsh wind and rain that had just begun showering over the city.
The humans yelled after them: "You Pokémon will be ours! Don't worry, we won't hurt you, we just want to battle you."
"Yeah, right." Cyndaquil thought to herself. "They want to lock us up in those tiny things they call 'Poke Balls.' Who would want to live in those things to only be beat up in battles every day with some stupid humans taking care of us? We are far more intelligent than them!"
"There...I can see it! Our home! We just have to race through that door! Hurry!" Pikachu quickly cried.
The Pikachu sounded the call, and they all raced through the door, just narrowly escaping the greedy trainers' fingertips. They then locked the door with the secret key Pikachu always carried with him.
"Phew, that was close. Is everyone all right?"
"Yes, Pikachu. I am. But is Cyndaquil? She looks like she is badly hurt..." The Serperior said nervously.
"No, you aren't." Your leg looks very badly wounded. Here, let me get you some bandages..."
The Serperior took off into the darkness of the secret room, which could only be accessed through a rather small crack in the wall. Charizard and Serperior could just barely squeeze through it. The walls and floor was cracked and dusty, and there was a rather small pile of food (garbage) on the floor in the corner of the room. The only light came from the flickering fire on Charizard's tail.
"Charizard, can you please come here? I could use some light...I can't see a thing."
"Sure thing, Serperior!"
"No no, I am fine...really," Cyndaquil pleaded.
"I can tell you are wincing, Cyndaquil. Stop trying to be so tough. Everyone gets hurt once in a while...it's a part of life! But not a pleasant part unfortunately..." Serperiors's sentence trailed off.
Cyndaquil just turned her back from Serperior, and ignored her.
"Ah, here's some! Thanks Charizard."
"No problem, Serperior."
"Here you go, Cyndaquil." Serperior said while applying the bandage to Cyndaquil's wound. "This scrap of bandage should be just enough to cover up your wound. I am so glad that we found this in the dumpster last week...now, how did this get hurt again?"
"I tripped on a stupid rock...that's all." Cyndaquil replied, now trying to turn her back from Serperior. She clearly didn't want any help from her.
"Hmmm... well, I am glad it isn't anything super serious. Now, how about I get you some water?"
But no sooner had Serperior said that when the roof of the building started to shake.
"Huh? What is that? Is it thunder?" Pikachu said hesitantly.
But it wasn't thunder...it was those pesky humans again!
"You didn't think we could get into this old shed did you? Well you guys must've forgot that we could move the roof of it! And why is there no door leading into this thing anyway?"
While the human pondered about this question, he took his eyes off of the Pokémon for just a moment, giving them a chance to escape.
"Charizard, let us hop onto your back! You can fly us to safety!"
"I-I'm sorry...but I can't. I am too weak...the fire on my tail is starting to go out..."
"Mine too", Cyndaquil said weakly.
"Oh no! Well... lets run! If we are quick, we may be able to get to that forest over there! Lets head out!"
They ran through the small crack in the shed until they reached the fence separating them from the forest.
"How are we supposed to get over this? We can't go out the door we usually go because it leads to a different part of town!" Cyndaquil yelled. Serperior was letting her ride on her back.
"Serperior can slither us over this in no time, and Charizard can easily climb over it. No big deal."
So they did, but the pesky humans knew how to climb over it as well.
"Grrr...they followed us! On to plan B. Follow me over to that cave!" Pikachu cried.
The Pokemon ran over to the cave in five seconds flat, and ran inside of it.
"Charizard, your tail is almost out; and Cyndaquil, your back's fire is almost out as well. Are you ok?"
"Yeah, we'll be fine..." Cyndaquil weakly said.
"No, you won't be. You are coughing and hacking up a storm! You can't even walk right!"
"Shhh...they are coming!" Serperior hissed.
"Where did those ridiculous Pokémon go...could they have gone into that cave? Lets go find out." The human boy said to his friends.
"No...NO!" Pikachu thought desperately.
"We must DO something, Pikachu! But what?" Serperior said, worried.
"Don't worry, I've got a plan. You see that small crack behind us? Well, we must get through it!"
"But how will Charizard and I EVER get through there?" She replied back.
"Don't worry, we will. Just squeeze through it tightly! Go, go, go!" Pikachu was clearly very confident with his plan.
"Hey...I heard some Pokémon whispering over there. Lets go look!"
The humans hurried over to the area that they had thought they had heard Pokémon coming from, only to find that no one was there.
"Hmmm...well that was weird. Lets go check over there!"
Unknown to the humans, the Pokémon were all squished tightly behind the area that the crack had been seen.
"Phew, that was close. But lets stay here just a little longer in case they come back." Pikachu warned the others.
But luckily, they didn't. The Pokémon then slowly crawled out from behind the crack, and lay down to finally sleep.
The next morning, the Pokémon crawled out of the cave to see a horrible site.
"What happened here?!" Serperior shrieked.
"I-I don't know..."
The forest trees and grass were scorched and burnt. There were flames bursting from all sides of the Pokémon. The thick scent of smoke hung in the air. It was a terrible site.
"This is awful! We must get out of here!" Pikachu said, astonished at the site.
"But what about all of the poor Pokémon whose homes have been ruined? We can't just leave them!" Serperior quickly said back.
Miniccino, Aipom, Onix, Pachirisu and more were all scattered everywhere in the need of help. Their only home had been destroyed.
"We need to find some water Pokémon, and fast!" Charizard said.
"Hey, look! There is some human already out there with his Dewott! It looks like it is using the move Water Gun to put out the fire!" Cyndaquil said observantly.
"A human forcing that poor Pokémon to do what he tells it too? That's just terrible! You will never catch me dead with one of those trainers!" Pikachu said with a hint of disgust in his voice.
"Hey, that was quick! The fire has already been put out!"
"Good observation, Charizard! This is just perfect! Now we can leave and go home!"
"Alright...if you say so Pika-"
But Charizard's sentence was interrupted by a Pachirisu racing in circles around the four friends.
"Hey, what's the big idea?" Cyndaquil huffed.
"Leave him alone, Cyndaquil. He is just being how a Pachirisu should be, playful!"
"Yeah, well he is also being annoying as well... he better stop before I use the move Flame Thrower on him."
"Cyndaquil! Can't you learn to play nice?"
"Yes, can't you, Cyndaquil?"
"Huh? I don't know that voice..."
Pikachu and his friends turned around, to see someone they had never seen before...
