Not the same

Zorua hadn’t been in his pokéball longer than a minute when I recalled him to the battlefield after watching the grass move once more. My pokémon had landed when I saw it, an orange and yellow blur emerging and heading straight for my ally. He did not have time to react in time and fell,…

Brief

The tall blades of grass began shaking once more and I was aware that a new pokémon was incoming. I unleashed Zorua, whom as usual took this opportunity to make a grand entrance. A wild ducklett entered the battlefield as my pokémon landed. He did not wait for the enemy to strike and immediately faded…

Another cut

The wild durant was dead and fading but the skittering hadn’t stopped which could only mean one thing, there was another pokémon incoming. The blades of grass parted and the wild ant pokémon entered the battlefield, twitching its pincers menacingly. I released Zorua in a flurry of twirls after which he landed majestically in front…

But a scratch

I could hear skittering across the grass as something small but fast made its way through the blades, getting closer to me with each passing second. My eyes could not see which pokémon was approaching but my ears provided ample warning to release Zorua onto the battlefield and be ready for an incoming attack. A…

Blue fades

I got closer to the nearby pond, searching for different pokémon to face, but the one that appeared was just another one I had already defeated several times, a ducklett. It actually rode on a wave until its small yellow feet hit the dirt and only then did I release my ally. Zorua made his…

Bit by bit

Zorua kept trying to land an attack, but every single one missed its mark and the enemy barely moved at all, didn’t counter attack either. They just kept at it, dancing with each other without really making contact. Something was bothering though, this pokémon didn’t seem intent on actually inflicting damage on another, it just…

Evasion

My pokéball stirred and Zorua leapt out in a flurry of somersaults before landing ever so softly. I searched the tall grass for an enemy but did not find any, my pokémon however did not move and was staring intently at the blades of grass. A few seconds passed before I saw slight movement, not…

Still chewing

I couldn’t believe he was still chewing and that I was still listening. – You there? Damn, that’s a good sandwich. Oh, there goes some sauce, sorry mam. The sound of an angry passer-by was a little entertaining, specially considering that the woman in question was probably yelling out loud in the middle of a…

Chewer

For a small device, the pokénav sure makes its presence known when it receives an incoming call, specially when you consider the hour of day. There was barely any other sound when my pokénav rang and I practically jumped out of my skin when I heard it. Caller id informed me that it was Ricky……

Light of day

The sun had been up for a little while and wide shadows were still cast. The ambient fog also helped reduce visibility and I could see a few light bulbs floating around, indicating the obvious presence of pokémon. One of these lights approached me, a purple-hued light I did not wait long for before releasing…

Same place, different day

The mattresses were too spongy, the pillows too soft and the sheets too itchy… lucky for me I was always extra tired from all the training when I needed to crash at the center, so I fell asleep almost immediately. The food wasn’t that good either, but considering it was mostly free, I could not…

Last light

So far, the small lights approaching had a red tint to them but this next one was purple and by now I knew that meatn I was about to face an illumise and not a volbeat. Not exactly the variety I was hoping for, but it would still be good enough to end the day…
