Mister Shades

As I was on my way out of town, a tall guy with sunglasses just appeared out of nowhere and starting asking questions. If I was a trainer. A rookie or a veteran.If I enjoyed it or not. The whole nine yards. But before I could answer any of it, he just said I looked…

Enter player 2

          Right in the middle of our talk, a boy comes in, close to my age but very wide-eyed. Asking for a pokémon. My father, as expected, said no. Passed the task on to me. Didn’t even ask for permission. I accepted to help the poor kid, felt sorry for him, he didn’t…

Showdown… not.

The  sun was setting, my pokémon were primed, my focus was at an all-time high, I felt ready to face the challenge of the gym. So I approached it. Game face on. And stepped through the door. Dad?! Really? This is where he went? Couldn’t he have said something? He’s not even far, he could be…

Grow my pretties…

Training was going well and by now I knew route 102 almost like the back of my hand. More than once did I pass by the little patch of dirt where I had collected and  planted the berries. But only at the end of the day did I notice the small vigorous sprouts. Boy did they…

Eye of the tiger!

As soon as lunch was over, I got to work, training and leveling up my pokémon as hard and as fast as I could. With each victory I grew more confident in my abilities, more focused. The pokémon responded, gaining valuable experience and taking a liking to me. Some of them even came to me…

Zorua

During lunch I looked a bit deeper into my new mystery pokémon. Besides being friendly, he seems to have a lot of potential. Gonna have to see what he is capable of.

Let the training begin…

As I prepared for lunch, I set my pokémon frre for their meal and realized that even though I still had quite a bit of training to do, my initial line up was quite impressive. Among my new friends, two stood out: Eevee had unexpectedly evolved into Sylveon; and the mysterious Zorua that I somehow…

The offer

An elderly man saw me wandering around town and offered me a cup of coffee. We sat down and talked about my adventure so far. My struggles and victories. He just remained silent, absorbing every word that came out of my mouth. He then proceeded to tell me about his life, and what a life…

Power Center

I found the Gym. Not that it was hard to find. It’s led by a guy named Norman, but I didn’t muster enough courage to go in… yet. If I’m gonna beat it, I need to train a bit more, maybe get my main roster up level ten or fifteen. For now I need to…

Petalburg

I made shortwork of route 102 and found myself in Petalburg, which if i’m being honest, wasn’t that much bigger than Oldale, with the exception of one building, the pokégym. But first things first, I had to go heal at the center. Turns out not it’s not just a hub for mending. I was approached…

Small, but promising…

Trying to keep a balanced team is no easy task, so when I stumbled across a Ralts I didn’t think twice and used my last pokéball on it. He was now part of my roster and what an addition he was.

Gotta plant them all!!

Berries, bushes of them, just waiting to be plucked. And pluck them I did. Two kinds: Oran berries which healed and Pecha berries that cured poison. If I’d known earlier I would’ve come here sooner. I lost track of how many times I had rushed to the pokécenter, my pokémon badly poisoned, hanging on by a…
