Boulder

Most of the big boulders were now rolling away from me, obvious pokémon. One of them did not, it instead sprouted two muscled arms as two small eyes opened and glared at me. It charged. My Kadabra was still out of his pokéball so I had him defend us, and he did with but a…

Tremors

Distracted, I had barely noticed the echoing tremors throughout the cave which weren’t louder but instead permeated the floor, the walls and even the ceiling, causing small rock slides. The shaking continued for a while and intensified nearly causing me to lose my footing. This was not he same kind of earthquakes I had been…

Walking rock

The floor was littered with rocks in all shapes and, some o which I got really familiar with as I avoided eye contact with the… altered man, and made my way further into the cave My eyes were now completely adjusted to the low lighting and I started to see that the dull pebbles and…

Rusturf dilemma

The inside was as cold and moist as I exepected it to be. I could barely see more than two, three meters in front of me. My eyes adjusted to the new lack of luminosity and could see the outlines of the rocky walls and floor. The sound of consistent scratching came from up ahead,…

Enter

I came upon the tunnel entrance once again and there she was, standing guard this early in the morning, the little girl with a red ribbon. Eyes barely open but still dedicated to her duty. She perked up as soon as she saw me approach. – Good, good morning mister! Nice to see you again…

Fresh, welcome, morning air

I had had enough of the battle tent and went outside. The glass doors parted and the temperature dropped as the sun wasn’t quite that high in the sky. There was still dew everywhere, but one could see people starting to walk about. Battle tent stood ominously behind me and I couldn’t get away from…

Stating the obvious

On the other side of the tent I could see a young boy sitting down in the middle of several pokéballs and paper notes. Curiosity made me approach him and I could hear him mumble. – So if I choose this one, I can teach it this move… but then it lacks defense… I was…

Other view

The little one stood as straight as he could, almost on his toes and proceeded to make his case. – My big sister is gentle usually. But when she gets angry, she’s really , really scary!! – Yes I am aware… – Let me finish!! The blood was flowing towards his cheeks and he was…

The lectures continue

Our exchange finished, the woman returned to her post by the door and I was left to my own devices. – But, but… I like that move… – It doesn’t matter if you like it. A small kid was arguing with a young man, tears cresting his eyes as he started to realize he couldn’t…

Reluctant visit

I fell asleep talking with Wally, discussing potential pokémon and future achievements. The next morning came swiftly and met us with the smell of fresh pancakes. We rushed into the kitchen, excited, hungry and eager for the day to start. Wally asked me what were my plans for the day, and I had no idea…

Goals

I helped myself to another serving f the delicious pudding before excusing myself from the table. This time I was allowed to go and find Wally. The door was not locked but I still knocked before letting myself in. Wally was sitting on his bed but quickly got up as soon as he saw me….

More food

– And where are your manners? The woman at the table, Wally’s aunt I presumed, got up and was yelling at her husband. – The poor thing must be hungry, why don’t you eat something before going to meet Wally? She motioned for me to sit down and eat something but I politely declined, saying…
