I see berries, I pluck them!

What’s the first thing I see when I get off the path? A big sign informing me that Mauville city is just up ahead. I could use some rest, relaxation and new surroundings. A few meters behind the sign, I could see the familiar shape and colour of a a berry patch, just waiting to…

Same energy, different colour

The water gave way to land and that was it, I had finally finished crossing the narrow, grass filled path to the other side of the water. The hard part was over, clear sailing from here on out. The grass grew shorter and there were no trainers around. Something jumped out of the grass. Something…

One, two… so far.

Well, he was right. I had to battle that fortune-teller… psychic… trainer before I could pick up the half buried pokéball. It was only when my hand closed around it that I realized it was no pokéball and I had no idea about what it was that I had just picked up. Thankfully my pokénav…

Fortune faded

That encounter had been intense. The cycling woman was very energetic and competitive, but gave off some weird vibes. I was so caught up in my own thoughts about the recent battle that I tripped on something and almost fell flat on my face. It was a half-buried, empty pokéball. – You won’t pick it…

Wheel leap

The path circled around, crossing under the bicycle bridge once more, providing much needed shade. I took a few minutes to rest up and drink water, enjoying the soothing sounds of the water hitting against the rocks, the wind dancing through the grass and the scream of someone falling off the bridge. I was in…

Dream in pink

I had no idea what the trouble with those two trainers was but I was sure glad to be left out of it. The battle had been intense and longer than I thought, the clouds were gaining that pink tint they sometimes had at sunset. No, not the clouds… a cloud. There was single pink…

Three of a kind

The musician’s second ball opened into the nearby water letting out a pokémon called tynamo. – He may not look like it, but this one is also a shocker! Kirlia used charm voice and not only did it do a considerable amount of damage to tynamo, but it also knocked out the rival panpour. The…

Troubles in twos

The path offered no further resistance until I found myself in a corner, there was nothing but tall grass and two people who were almost certainly trainers facing each other. They weren’t talking, just stared intently at one another. I thought about avoiding them but curiosity got the best of me. My approach wasn’t subtle…

Bit by bit

Nothing like a brisk walk in order to melt away all the food, and if per chance I should chance upon some battles, all the better. I had no such luck. I was almost at the place where I had battled May earlier and there still had been no battles with wild or tamed pokémon….

Another afternoon, another call

Fully recovered, I went out once again, to try and reach the next town. I was barely out the door when my phone rang. This time I saw who it was before answering… not that it helped. I did not associate the name with anyone I had met or gave my contact to. It was…

Teleport safeguard

The battle had been rough and taken quite a toll on me and my team. Most of them were exhausted and the ones that weren’t couldn’t hold their own on the battlefield just yet. I had to go back to town and heal them at the center, not to mentio it was way past lunch…

Goodbye… for now

My two reliable pokémon were not in a very good state and I was seriously worried about losing one of them, but I wasn’t going to let May know it. I wasn’t going to just hand over her victory. I picked abra’s pokéball and released him onto the battlefield. It was an obvious bluff but…
