It’s a resort

I avoided all the wandering people and grass since I didn’t feel like being challenged to a random battle. It would probably give me indigestion. I went back to the beginning or should I say the end, back to where the well kept streets gave way to the outside, the so called wilderness, where route…

Call me mister Berry

I had picked a good spot. It was quiet enough for me to eat in peace but also provided me with a nice view of my surroundings. I could see the trainers passing by and even the occasional pokémon could be seen jumping around. The three bushes behind me were not of a kind I…

Stroll

The sun was high in the sky and hunger started to grip me. I needed to find a place to eat but the northern exit didn’t have any place where I could sit and eat, so I headed towards the west exit and route 117. Now this place showed potential. Not only could I see…

Unwanted update

I went to the northern edge of town and considered heading out, leaving the city. My pokénav sounded off and I answered it on instinct. There was a female voice on the line. – Hey Korsu! How are you doing? Where are you now? I was going to answer but didn’t manage to get a…

Reschedule

The two people in front of the gym were clearly not from around here seeing as they were not in the usual bicoloured attire. – Aww, uncle, please? C’mon. I want to challenge this gym and see how much better I’ve become. I want to test my strength. – I don’t know Wally. You still…

A wild gym appears

Big, square and white with a big sign outside, this was the customary look for every single gym so far. The one in Mauville was no different. Like in other places, the sign outside advertised the leader of said gym. Wattson was his name and he came with a glaring title: “The cheerfully electrifying man!”….

Generosity

A young woman was walking by, coming from the pokécenter. She was smiling like every one else, but unlike them, she stopped close to me and shook my hand. – Good morning friend. How are you this fine day? Is our town treating you well? I greeted her with the same level of courtesy she…

Not yet…

I followed the vendor around the building until I saw him go inside. The sign outside used bright colours to spell out: “The play spot for all. Come on in and enjoy Mauville Game Corner!”. A game house? Here? Sure the building was a little different from the others, with extra light bulbs and stronger…

The vendor

– Pssst! Pssst! Hey kid! I turned around, looking for the one who was calling me. I couldn’t see anyone. – Here kid! Come here! I got something for you… I managed to see a silhouette after a while. Someone was hiding in the shadow of a building, practically invisible. He waved at me, beckoning…

Heed my warning!

– Pay attention my friend! You need to pay attention! One of the citizens ran up to me, grabbed my clothes and was pratically screaming in my face. – I saw you! You have a bicycle but you are not safe! You are never safe! You always have to mind your surroundings! Always! I tried…

Shiny!

Rydel was more than happy to have me around for one night. I had the feeling that if it were up to him, I could stay for a whole month. However, reluctantly, he kept insisting that I had to get out of town, that I should never stay more than one day. I thanked him…

No training wheels

I headed towards the center, intending on calling it a day but the memory ether was still too fresh on my mind. I just hoped my bed wouldn’t smell as strongly. The main street streched out for quite a while and I decided to walk the length of it, to get to know other exits….
