Chapter 1: Starting Up!Edit

The day had begun. Today was the day the trainer Kinno Shinzo and his best friends Legion Rowan and White Birch, recieved their starter Pocket Monsters (or Pokémon for short). Kinno is worried White is already there, holding his desired Starter.

Kinno hurries to the Center. "White....please tell me you didn't take...."

White turns to him. "Hm? Took what?"

Kinno extremly curious "Which starter did you take."

Professer Birch laughed quietly.

Holding a Pokéball, White replies in a challenging fashion "Why don't you get one, and see for yourself!"

Kinno goes in looking for the Torchic pokéball.

White is patiently throwing the ball up and catching it in his hands.

Kinno picks up Torchic. "So you chose Treecko?"

Professer Birch stood up "The next person should be here for Mudkip soon."

White sends out his Treecko.

Kinno asked. "You wanna battle already?!"

White replies "Well, do you?"

"I guess so..." Kinno says. He throws out Torchic.

White points towards Kinno "Well then, let's go"

Torhic looks at Treecko. "Torchic!"

White's Treecko gives Torchic a determined glare.

The Torchic steps back a little seemingly not willinbg to fight at the moment.

Kinno was ready for White's moves. "Torchic, use Scratch!"

White tells his Treecko to attack "Treecko, use Pound!!"

Torchic misses it's scratch and skids across the lab.

Another Trainer, known only by his nickname, Legion, walks into the Pokémon Center. However, he isn't there to get Mudkip, since a Cubone is walking alongside him.

Kinno looks over at him "Hey Legion! ..." he notices Cubone. Isn't that the Egg your dad's Marowak layed about a month ago?

Legion grins. "Yeah, this is going to be my starter for our journey. Uh, sorry Professor Birch, you'll need to give that Mudkip to somebody else..."

Professer Birch smiled "No problem."

White turns to Legion "How was it you got the Marowak, again?"

Legion frowned a little, as if trying to remember "I think my Grampa give it to my Dad when he was young...."

Professer Birch thought for a second.

White was puzzled, looking at his father,

Kinno had a smirk, as he watched. "Pay attention White!"

Torchic pecked Treecko in his/her's eye.

White's Treeko bounces back a little from damage, but begins to absorb Torchic's energy.

Torchic begins panicing.

Torchic jumped in the air joyce at something and then proceeded to tackle the Treecko.

White demands his Treecko dodge it, the Treecko tries it's hardest to dodge.

Torchic swirves to the side trying to stop Treecko.

Legion shot a dark look at Professor Birch, but quickly turned away. He watched the Pokémon battling silently, Cubone standing at his side.

Professor Birch didn't notice him.

Out of the last Pokéball comes a Mudkip. "MUDKIP!" he said.

Cubone regarded Mudkip, and walked over to it. 

Mudkip continued to watch his friends fight.

Legion watched White and Kinno intently, taking in their strengths and weaknesses while battling.

Torchic walked up to Treecko.

The Mudkip walked to her smiling.

Legion kept watching the two trainers and their Pokémon.

Torchic grinned a dark smile.

Legion looked at Cubone, which nodded. Cubone charged into Torchic from behind.

The Torchic turned back thinking Cubone knew what it was gonna do.

Cubone kept running forward, and went to Tackle Torchic.

Torchic chuckled to it's self and did a split kicking Cubone and Treecko in the groin. It laughed at it's cheap shot.

Kinno stood in shock.

White facepalms.

"I'm sorry, about my Torchic." Kinno said

Torchic commented in her Pokémon language. "I'm not." she said with a dark smirk.

Legion looked taken aback. "Cubone... Are you..?"

Cubone tried to to show it was okay.

Proffeser Birch walked to another room.

"Where do you think Professor Birch is going...?" Asked Legion.

"He's probably going to get something." Kinno replied.

"What like? All the Starter Pokémon are gone, after all..." Legion kept on.

White returns his Treecko. "He knows what he's doing, after all, he is the Pokémon Professor."

"Torchic!" the Torchic said with glee.

Kinno walked over to it "Not how I expected to win, but...OK? should we nickname them? I know I'm nicknaming mine."

Legion shrugged "I may just keep his name as Cubone..."

Kinno nodded. "I understand. So how about...Diane?"

Torchic shook her head.

"Alexandra?" he said.

Torchic looked angrier

"Oh, you're a boy!" he responded

Torchic clawed his cheek with anger.

Kinno turned his head back to her. "Yeah. you're a girl."

Torchic stood tall. "Torchic."

Kinno wondered. "...Cassandra!"

Torchic nodded happily.

"Alright." Kinno smiled.

Legnion looked over at Kinno and Torchic, and smiled "....I'm glad I'm starting my journey with you all. I feel like the legendary Red... You've heard of him, right? In those stories? The ones where.... Ah, you probably know. I'm just rambling now."

Cassie smiled "Yes you are."

Legion sighed "I just wonder what we'll be doing on our journey."

White nods determined. "Same here."

"I know what I'LL be doing!" Kinno said slyly.

Legion frowned "...What do you mean by that?"

Kinno looked over at Legion, "Oh just bein' the Pokémon Master. Nothin' special."

White scoffs "Seems like a bit of a long shot..!"

"It can't be that hard!" Kinno replied confidently. "Didn't you hear about those trainers last year and the evil organizations," he smirks "Infact, it'll be a cinch."

"Oh brother." Cassie says annoyed.

"......You know it won't be that easy." Legion piped up "All those Trainers took at least a year for just their one journey."

"Still. They made them look like clowns!" Kinno replied.

Birch spoke up is a mumbled voice. "They WERE clowns"

"Well, the leaders did accept that Hoenn was perfect the way it is now, and disbanded their teams later. So that's good." Legion said.

"Yeah" Kinno replied.

"So it COULD be pretty smooth sailing, just a standard journey. I hope it's not though." Legion added.

"I doubt it will." Kinno smiled.

"What's the Pokémon you want to catch first..." Legion asked.

"A Ralts." Kinno explained.

Legion shrugged "I know I want a Ralts as well, but I want to catch a Poochyena too..."

Kinno smiled, "So many people to many Pokémon..."

"I wonder what to do... Challenge the League or... Compete in..." Legion blushed "Contests."

Kinno smirked.

"T-There's nothing wrong with it...! I just..." Legion blushed even more.

"Don't worry, I'm not judging you." Kinno replyed calming down with it.

Torchic rolled on the floor laughing.

Cassie stood up.

Kinno straighten his face.

Legion started to speak "So uh..." He paused. "What now...?"

White raised a fist "I guess we better get going!!"

Kinno put Cassie on his shoulder. "That'd be a good idea...."

Legion frowned "You sure? I think we'd better wait for Professor Birch..." He rubbed the back of his head, confused.

"Alright. I hope he gets back soon though. I READY to catch some Pokémon!" Kinno said excitedly.

"Sorry guys. I needed to calm Mudkip down. What did you need?" Professor Birch asked.

"Well I convinced them to wait, to see what we should do first.  The other two wanted to leave really quickly, but..." Legion looked unsure.

"So what's the plan?" Birch asked.

Legion's face had a smug grin. "I know I'm going to be taking part in contests as well as Gyms, hopefully. And...It's far off, but there's always the Pokémon League." 

White simply smiles "Cool! To be honest, I don't know what I wanna do."

"I know what I want to do." Kinno said proudly. "I'm going for gyms and the Pokémon."

"And Flannery." Legion muttered under his breath.

Kinno scoffed. "What're you talking about?"

Legion shrugged, then smirked. "Oh, nothing. Nothing at all."

"I know what you're implying Legion!" Kinno said firmly. "And I do not!"

Legion turned away and lifted up his hood. "Yeah yeah, alright. Whatever you say."

Kinno blushed. "Let's just go!" He walked outside.

"Somebody's got issues" Torchic says as she followed.

"Hm." White rubs the bottom of his nose with is index finger, and proceeds to follow the rest of the group.

Chapter 2: Route Traveling 101Edit

"It feels great to finally be out here as trainer." Kinno said donning a wide smile.

"...Yeah. Whenever I stayed at my Grampa's, he always showed me Pokémon and let me play with them, but I never thought I'd actually become a trainer." Legion shrugged and shook his head. "...And what do we do now? We should have planned this out."

"Dude!" Kinno said confidently. "You're journey isn't something you have to plan! You just do it! Go out there wherever the wind takes and just enjoy the journey!"

"I have to agree with Kin, for once." White insisted.

"...Hmph. Fine, fine... We'll see." Legion lowered his hood a little, so it covered his eyes, and crossed his arms.

"Yeah! See how awesome this idea is!" With that Kinno runs out a little bit jolting his eyes around taking in his surroundings.

White mumbles; "I wonder where the rare Pokémon are."

Cassie follows Kinno.

"I know it seems farfetched," Kinno held his hand over his forehead to block the sun. "But I wonder if there's any Shiny Pokémon out here? 'Cause if there are I call 'em!"

"Dude, they probably don't exist." White shrugged, "There was that thing about that red Gyarados at the Lake of Rage, though."

"Whatever White. You just don't have an imagination," Kinno streches his arm to the sky. "I know out there somewhere shinys DO exist!"

"...Why couldn't you have chosen Mudkip?" Cassie says dumbfoundedly.
