A rough start for a journey

Post by Forceaus on Tue Aug 06, 2013 10:03 pm

So, he was now an official pokemon trainer. Lenard now had his pokedex, five pokeballs and his starter pokemon. He had chosen Torchic. It had not been an easy decision, but this particular one shared an immediate connection with him. He totally wished he could take all of the options, but that was against the rules. All new trainers were allowed one and only one pokemon to start off with. They would have to catch their own from that point forward. He left the lab and headed out. The ferry to the mainland wasn't around at the moment. It would not be available for a few hours. He did not know what to do in the meantime. "Go train your Torchic. Duh." he told himself. Good of idea as any. Lenard set off into the nearby wild area to find some pokemon. He wound up heading towards the ocean by way of getting completely lost. He fought only a single bug type on the way. A successful victory for his Torchic.

Now he was at the waterside and fishing. He lived near this location. He could see his house from here. The view of the ocean from his bedroom window was quite serene. The view he was currently seeing was also peaceful. Just a relaxing moment by the ocean, until it was interrupted. There was a snag on his line. He had something tugging at the other end. Lenard pulled back and pulled some more until whatever it was at the other end came out of the water and to him. It was a magikarp that was splashing about. Lenard saw an opportunity to catch a pokemon. "Alright Torchic, let's catch this thing. Use scratch attack quickly." he told his starter. Torchic ran forward and attacked the wild magikarp. It was a direct hit.

Sam's final meal as a regular man was over, with the final strand of spaghetti going down his throat, he became a Pokémon trainer. Sam still had manners however so he helped his family with the washing of the dishes afterwards and then bolted upstairs. Opening the draw to his desk, he pulled out a belt, a Pokédex and a small box with shapes cut into it, the vacated space that would hopefully one day be filled with Gym Badges. Sam clipped the belt around his waste and watched his 6 empty Pokéballs wobble around, Sam then looked up into his mirror and noticed he had a wide grin across his face, he was about to venture out into the big wide world and see many wondrous things in the process, his new life was about to start.

Sam walked down the steps of his house into his living room where he was met by his father, mother, brother and sister. It was going to be tough to say goodbye to them, he had been with them all of his life, but he hoped he was independent enough to be able to handle himself out on his own. He first hugged his mother who gave him a soft kiss on the forehead, "Be safe out there son" she said with a smile, Sam could tell by her face she was trying to hold back tears, and so was his father as he gave him a firm handshake. His older sister was next, they had never seen eye on all things, they had two very different interests, but she could understand the situation and gave him a friendly hug goodbye. His final family member was his younger brother, he was only 19, a good age for a Pokémon trainer, but he had decided against going for the time being. Sam gave his brother a hug and held him before saying "I hope to see you out there one day brother", his brother replied with a smile "You will, but don't expect me to go easy on you the first time we meet." Sam walked to the door and gave them all one last wave before closing it behind him, one more deep breath... and he was ready to go.

The only problem was that he did not have a Pokémon to begin with... He had never been given one like he had heard others have throughout the land, he guessed he was just not that lucky, and some Pokémon even attach themselves like household pets, another reason why Sam was unlucky. He kept his chin up though, he knew there was a Pokémon waiting out there to be captured, and then they would both travel on to become the greatest pairing in Pokémon history.

Sam had seen several Pokémon that could have been caught, like a Vulpix,  Houndour and a couple of Pidgey's but they had all evaded his capture and they even broke one of his Pokéballs, luck was not on his side today, just like most of his life. Sam decided to look into a forest to see if he could find any decent Pokémon in there, but no luck, he could hear other trainers battling around him though, causing him to get slightly giddy inside and he know knew he was in a whole 'nother world now.

Sam came to a clearing and watched as several Spearow flew overhead, he then looked down to see a Growlithe bathing in the sun, it was not doing anything really, just laying down and cleaning itself, a good time for Sam to strike.

The first scratch hit, and all Magikarp could do in respond was splash around on dry land. That was it. That was all it could do. Seeing this would probably make a lot of people wonder why Lenard wanted to catch this thing. He had his reasons admittedly. Those reasons were the ones behind his attempts. "Torchic, use scratch once more. Let us catch it."

Torchic ran forward and used scratch once more, and Magikarp just keep bouncing up and down and doing nothing. Now was as good as time as any. Lenard pulled out a pokeball and readied himself to throw it. He tossed it at the wild pokemon. The pokeball soared through the air and hit the Magikarp. It opened and a light issued from it. Magikarp was hit by the light and teleported into the pokeball. It shook and shook for a few seconds before eventually becoming still. He had caught it. Lenard had caught the Magikarp. Torchic was pretty cheerful about its successful efforts. Lenard walked forward and picked up the pokeball containing his new pokemon. He now owned two pokemon. He was off to a pretty good start. "Now what?" he wondered. The ferry still was not around so there was no getting off of the island.

In the meantime it was just more doing whatever came to mind. Nothing in particular really. Nothing to do other than pokemon trainer stuff. He had to be careful though. Torchic was still inexperienced and Magikarp was well, Magikarp. For the time being he was being careful around the wild pokemon, avoiding the forest as much as possible. The deeper parts mainly. That was where most local pokemon were located. Sure, most pokemon on this island were docile and gentle creatures by nature, but it was still best to use proper precaution.

Lenard just walked around in search of a few things. He was planning on heading back to the city for a supply run. He did not have much on him. Just a couple of potions and an antidote. Yeah, not much. Supplies were definitely needed. As he was heading back he noticed something nearby. A good deal of movement. Not sure what was causing it though. Could it be something dangerous? That or had he scared something away without meaning to? Should he even check out to see what might be around? Sure, why not? Lenard carefully approached the spot where he had noticed the movement. Oh, what would he even see?

Sam was crouched behind a bush, watching the Growlithe mind its own business and lay casually in the sun, it didn't appear to be attached to any other trainers or a part of a Growlithe family, so it would not be missed if it was taken. Sam slipped his Pokédex out of his pocket and aimed it at the Growlithe, the small mechanism then went on to explain what the Pokémon was "Growlithe. A Puppy Pokemon. Very friendly and faithful to people. It will try to repel enemies by barking and biting." Other Pokémon seemed to be entering its territory, clearly this Growlithe was less aggressive than most and perhaps Sam could use this to his advantage.

After looking into the Growlithe some more, he found out that they particularly liked dry berries, luckily he was surrounded by Chesto berries, a well placed dry berry. He plucked a few of them from the trees nearby until he had a handful, after checking to see if the Pokémon was still there, Sam ventured out slowly and crouched down with his hand held out towards the Growlithe, it immediately sensed the smell of the incoming berries as it turned immediately to Sam and licked his lips, this stopped Sam in his tracks, he was afraid of sending the Pokémon scurrying off again and having to show for his first day of being a Pokémon trainer. Sam remained a statue as the Growlithe slowly ventured towards him, in the open world he was silent, but in his mind he was going mad, begging the Pokémon to eat the berries that he was offering in his right hand.

The Growlithe was in touching distance now, and its head slowly dropped into Sam's hand as it began to munch on the berries, Sam tried his hardest not to laugh at the small puppy's tongue as it tickled around his hand. With his other hand, he reached to his belt and tugged a Pokéball off of it, the Growlithe watched his other hand out of the corner of his view but continued to eat the berries none-the-less, Sam slowly reached up with the Pokéball in full sized mode, the ball suddenly opened and a shot of red light beamed out of the ball, touching the Growlithe and sending it inside the confines of the small ball. With the ball still in his hand, Sam was ready to celebrate when the ball began to wiggle around, forcing him to drop it onto the ground, it continued to move around for several more seconds before stopping still, Sam was still quite cautious to pick it back up in case it would begin to move on its own accord again, but he was certain it had been caught. Finally luck was on his side, he had caught his first Pokémon of many, it was a great occasion for him, it was just a shame there was no one around to celebrate with.

Sam was flustered by the whole situation, his heart was in his mouth the entire way through the ordeal, but as he sat down on the ground and stared at the ball in his hand, he knew the two of them were going to go a long way.

He walked over towards the place where he had seen the rustling leaves that indicated movement. Slowly and steadily he moved over there. Nothing, nothing so far. He grabbed hold of some of the leaves on a bush and pushed it aside to look. He still saw nothing. Lenard started to just give up and leave when he heard more movement. A lot more this time. He pushed aside a few more bushes and finally saw what was going on. A kid was standing there celebrating something. He had a pokeball in his hand. He probably had just caught a wild pokemon. Where was his starter though? Had he not gotten one? Where did he get the pokeball from? That seemed a bit off. He did not want to bother the kid though. Too many questions man. So he turned around and started to leave again.

Sam kinda felt sorry for the little guy, it was just laying down and having a rest one second, and the next it was trapped in a Pokéball with no way of escaping unless his Trainer calls on him. It was quite the lifestyle change and it was a change that can happen in an instant, Sam just wished that he could give the Pokémon everything it wanted and make its life on the road better than the life it was previously living. Sam noticed some rustling in the woods to his left, but as he looked, he could only see a dark figure moving away from him, better than a dark figure moving towards him i suppose. To test his new partners power, he released his Growlithe back into the world, the ball landed on the ground once and split open, sending the recently captured Growlithe back out in front of him, the ball then returned to Sam's hand as if he called for it back, he shrunk the size of the ball down and placed it in his pocket, ready for later.

The Growlithe looked around and probably noticed that the area he was in was exactly the same as before, Sam had not ventured anywhere else yet. The Growlithe studied it's surroundings and then turned to see his new Trainer standing directly in front of him, it looked like the Growlithe was not really sure what he was supposed to do, it walked over to Sam's feet and started walking around him in circles, perhaps it was some kind of "Welcome to the pack" thing Growlithe's do, whatever it was, it was a sweet gesture, Sam slowly reached down and started to rub the fur of the creature, hoping not to startle it, it seemed to like it though, a smile came across its face as it began to pant more, clearly liking what his master was doing. So now there was the beginning of a bond between the two, the Growlithe seemed to be very gentle and did not bark back at Sam at all, and Sam was enjoying himself too much to notice any flaws that the Growlithe had, but if there were any, Sam would deal with them quickly.

For the next few hours, the two of them were mostly playing in the small area they had to themselves, it did not hurt to blow off some steam every once in a while. One thing that Sam had realised whilst enjoying his time with his new friend is that calling him "Growlithe" took a longer time to say than other Pokémon, and Sam did not deem the name personal enough, he wanted his Growlithe to be different from the rest, and this is why he simply shortened his name down to "Growly". Sam had his first taste of owning a Pokémon and he had a great time, imagining that feeling and realizing he would feel the same way everytime he caught a Pokémon spurred him own to capture more and more Pokémon. Of course capturing them is only half of the battle, the next step in their relationship is training and battling, with the right attitude, both of them will be unbeatable. Sam walked with his Growlithe a short distance away and looked out over the ocean, he noticed the other island that was attached to his home, it was Typhoon Island, he had always wanted to go there, and now that he could do whatever he wanted, he was going to do just that. Sam made his way back out of the forest into the open world and headed towards the harbour.
