Unwilling snack

My stomach growled as the morning passed on. I should’ve had a stronger breakfast. The closest place where I could get some sustenance was somewhere I did no wish to but I wasn’t that eager to go all the way back to Slateport and kadabra had no stamina left on his teleport move. This situation…

Lola calls

I was still feeling the adrenalin from the previous battle rushing through my system when my pokénav sounded off. The name “Lola” appeared in bright pink lettering. – Hello, Korsu. It’s Lola. How are you this fine morning? I’m enjoying the sunlight. Did you know that bathing so early in this light is extremely beneficial?…

Well raised

The breeder smiled and released yet another pokémon, a fluffy, small and purple critter by the name of stunky. My kadabra struck true but his attack had no effect whatsoever. Perhaps it had immunity to psychic attacks. Lucky for me I had options, but kirlia leapt out of her pokéball and got herself poisoned. I…

Test the breeder

Safe night, safe rest and with the first light I was out the door, snacking on some fruit. I made my way back to the outskirts of Mauville without much trouble. Just a couple of wild encounters and no trainers whatsoever. The day care center seemed to be closed as I passed it. There was…

Hello Wally!

Someone was calling me on my pokénav but I knew not who it was, the caller was not identified. – Oh, hello, Korsu! It’s me, Wally! How are you? I tried replying but the young boy was too excited. – I’m almost back home and I just wanted to tell you that my uncle bought…

Abrakadabra!!!!

Two, three, four encounters, each one a wild pokémon, each one providing valuable experience for my allies. Both aron and abra were in a hurry to take point and almost fought with each other over who would initiate a fight. Abra leveled up after a battle and refused to go back to his pokéball. I…

Tough bug

Another wild pokémon jumped into the fray, a Volbeat. Riolu jumped out of his pokéball and went straight towards our opponent, but the pokémon was ready for him and struck him with a confuse ray. My ally stopped dead in his tracks, his eyes unfocused, his arms limp and a very confusing expression. I tried…

Mienfoo fighting

The blades of grass rustled around me. Left, right, left again and front, it seemed like I was being stormed by pokémon on all sides. The movement stopped after a few seconds anda single yellow and orange pokémon walked close to me. It didn’t growl or attack me, just stood there with its eyes closed…

Call of frustration

My pokénav started sounding off, someone was calling me, an Abigail. Where had I met her? – Oh, Korsu, hi there! This is Abigail! How are you doing? Keeping up with your training? I struggled to remember to whom it was that I was talking and vaguely recalled a triathlete on a bike. – So?…

Wild beat

I had just about enough of athletes, triathletes and whatever. They were all a pain in my backside. The patch of tall grass up ahead seemed the most inviting I had ever seen. No trainers, no mysterious people, no muss, no fuss, just plain wild battle and an oportunity to expand my roster. The first…

Athletes everywhere

I bid the girls goodbye and circled around some trees, ending up where I had previously eaten lunch days ago. There were no berry bushes present where I had planted some, which meant someone had already picked them clean and wasn’t considerate enough to reseed. The road was vacant, except for a man running towards…

Pressure to impress

I moved along the road, avoiding the day care as much as I could. The man at the gate was still the same but he didn’t seem to notice me. Luckily I moved past him without any hassle. – Hey mister! What you doing mister? A couple of girls came out of nowhere and intercepted…
