Inside

It would seem I had gone as far as I could without reliving my failure, I had to go back and choose another path but not before at least exploring the man-made entrance into a mountain I had come across. There were no guards or doors, just a small corridor that opened up to a…

Unable to proceed

I left the eager trainer behind and made my way forward, right up until I was blocked by two large boulders, the same type of rocks I had seen inside the tunnel, the kind of stone I could remove by myself. No, to overcome this obstacle I would have to beat the gym where I…

Additional info

I walked away from the house and stumbled across an onlooker, one that approached me as soon as he saw me. – So how did it go? Did you win? Was it challenging? I told him of my reluctance but did explain it and he didn’t wait for it. – I challenged the Winstrate family,…

House up the hill

I thanked the young couple for the plentiful meal, wished them a good day and made my way up the road, didn’t have to walk very far before I spotted a large, yellow house with a white picket fence surrounding it. A large sign was posted outside with large black lettering on it: “Our family’s…

Spare meal

-Ooh lala! That’s a lot to take! I did not expect the battle to go like this. She looked behind her shoulder, towards the brazier whre meat was being turned over. The smell was intoxicating and my stomach responded with a loud growl. – Well, at least it seems like the food is ready. You…

Keep burning

A small orange pokémon appeared on the battlefield, one whose body singed the grass around it. The heat it released was so intense that its partner, Chatot, had to move a few meters away. – Really? You had to bring out that one? You know how dangerous it is to keep it from spreading fire…

Song and fire

My opponents released their respective pokémon, a Chatot and a Numel, both peculiar pokémon, but not as strong as mine. I released my two top pokémon, Zorua and Trapinch. Damn it! I forgot to change the order again and that meant I had to waste valuable time in switching Trapinch out for another pokémon, Riolu….

Picnic

I went to the left, passing the trees where there was a small clearing, with smoke. Two people were talking there. One was standing near a small brazier with a blue apron on while his hands moved swiftly across the flames, tending to food I could not see but definitely smell. He paid no attention…

Hillside

This road was quite different from the one where I had been training so far. There were many trees on the roadside but it was mostly rocks and the terrain was definitely rising. There were hills and mountains approaching and to my left I had a better view of the volcano I acknowledged back in…

It’s done

There were no pokémon to replace the fallen ones which left the battlefield pretty uneven. Kirlia and Zorua had no problem finishing off what was left of the opposing Burmy. While it was true that the pokémon did manage to deflect some attacks with its barrier, the onslaught of damage was too much and the…

Growled out

One of my foes released a pokémon to replace the recently felled one. The new pokémon looked like a bunch of leaves and rocks bundled together, the pokénav identified it as a Burmy. Both my pokémon brought the Growlithe to the edge of life but it still reamained, a stubborn one. My pokémon got ready…

Exeggcuted

My foes released a pair of known pokémon, a Growlithe and an Exeggcute but neither looked menacing, they wore a docile expression and expectantly waited on their respective master’s orders. I unleashed the two pokémon at the top of my roster which meant my Zorua and Trapinch appeared on the battleifled. This had been a…
