Rearrange and redeploy

The sun disappeared below the horizon and for the first time that day I felt tired, so much so that I couldn’t hold back a mighty yawn. It was time to call it a day. The trip back into town was fast and without incident, no trainer or wild pokémon wanted to have a late…

About time

It took me two fights to get out of that little patch of grass, maybe due to its location the pokémon were unusually aggressive. Nothing I couldn’t handle. None of the pokémon I faced were a match for me or even worth capturing. By the end of the second battle I was recalling my pokémon…

Berry care

Turns out this maze wasn’t exatcly a maze after all, just a few hedges thrown together. I found the exit in no time and a group of berry bushes along with it. I picked the three and decided to plant just one, so that in case no one managed to pluck the berries whent they…

Finders keepers

I was about to leave the pair to their own devices, their respective training, when a glint caught my eye, a small reflection from something half buried in the dirt, something that had been there for quite a while and yet these trainers either did not find it or utterly ignored it. I moved closer…

Notes and hits

This was great, just what I needed, to cross what seemed to be another maze. I followed the corridor and had not taken seven steps before I two trainers approached me from the sides. One of them jumped at me, missing my face with his feet by a few inches. – Now that is more…

Undisturbed

The noise, the battle and even the tantrum that scared away any wild animal life in the vicinity, the meditating man remained still with his eyes closed, immune to any outside interference. I had the distinct feeling that the world could end right now and this mand would not notice. – That was quite a…

Fishy business

The road was not that long and I soon found myself facing a body of water and no way to cross it. I was not alone. There were two men staring into the water, one seemed to be meditating peacefully while the other one was further away and grumbling, if one could call it that….

Caller action

My opponent resumed their play, not far from where the twins were laughing, and I could see the perfume lady just waltzing around. All of them were just waiting around in this road, almost like they were waiting to ambush wandering trainers…. or maybe I was just being paranoid. My pokénav sounded off, signaling an…

Dad battler

A small pikachu ran up to me and starting tugging on my leg or at least what looked like a pikachu. It was a small kid dressed in a pikachu costume. Smiling and pulling me towards a man, his father. – That’s ok Richard, come here, come to papa. Richard let go of me and…

Restoration

The battle was won, victory was gained and Splash returned to his ball. Kirlia did not. She remained as still as she could, severely injured and barely able to stand, but she remained still. She looked at me, suffering in her eyes and an unspoken plea for help. The poison would not take long to…

Trouble as one

I left the clearing and could see the cycle road to my left, in the direction I decided to take. Laughter came up to me from behind, the product of two little twin girls that were playing near the main road. Both of them stopped playing when they looked at me and gestured me to…

Perfume

I could not make heads or tails of it… just what was that weird pink cloud that had vanished? And also, where was I? I knew I had left the cycle road but had no accurate memory of the route I had taken. It was all hard to remember now. Laughter filled the air as…
