Re: Steps to Simplicity - Chapter 17: Fumes to Peaches is LA-HAUT! (8.19.2011)

Here's another chapter I worked on while at work


Chapter 18: Cross Country
   The message continued, “I don’t know why I freaked out. I only ran away to think. I really do need to talk to you. I am in Crimson Town for a conference and try and call me so we can meet up after I’m finished this afternoon.” I was plain shocked, but I had to get back to Juniper City and head over to my next gym, but I needed to call Professor Juniper first.

   “Professor Juniper!” I exclaimed. “I beat Ralph. This means I need my next gym assignment.” “Well, Congratulations!” Professor Juniper said elated. “You’re going to travel all the way over to Azure Town, however I do need you to stop in Juniper City. There is something waiting there for you in the Pokémon Center. I have authorized the Mérin Rail Authority to let you go from Peach City, stop in Juniper City and then pick up another train to Valse Town.” “Why do I have to take the train?” I asked. “Can’t I just ride my bike?” “Well, Azure Town is 160 miles away at the far westernmost tip of the region,” Professor Juniper explained. “This will cut down your journey to only two days. I must go, but don’t forget to stop in Juniper City.” “I won’t!” I assured her. “Good Luck,” Professor Juniper said hanging up.

   I quickly went to the Pokémon Center to heal my Pokémon. I grabbed a Mérin Region map for the road and looked for Azure City. Professor Juniper was right; it was the westernmost City in the region. Once my Pokémon were healed, I ran to the train station to catch the train to Juniper City. Once I got on, I just had to call Charlotte, because I was not literally sitting and waiting with Charmeleon, Emolga and Stunky. I tried her a few times, but I only got her voicemail. After the fourth call, I decided to leave a message. “Charlotte,” I began. “It’s all good. Sometimes pressure can get to you. I wouldn’t mind taking this a step further if it’s going to benefit you. I’ve been thinking long and hard and I’ve felt something and I may be falling for it. I am on my way to Azure City, so if you would like to meet me there, I’ll be waiting at…” I paused for a moment to look at my map. “I’ll be waiting at Quinze Ans, the boîte at the intersection of Château Azur and 10th Street in two days at 7pm. Please be there, Charlotte.” I hung up and just sat waiting for the train to Peach City. This time, I didn’t have the hot sun bearing down on me, but to one side there was the ocean and the other, mass amounts of cornfields.

   After just half an hour on the train, we arrived in Juniper City. It was still the massive rustic looking city I left there. I walked to the Pokémon Center in the middle of the city. It was still an awesome combination of the two types of trees. I entered inside and there stood professors Juniper and Magnolia. “I’m glad you made it, Drew,” Professor Magnolia said. “I still can’t believe you’ve come this far.” “Well, I’m only trying as hard as I possibly can,” I answered. “Well, I do have some stuff and news for you,” Professor Juniper said. “First, I have a Pokémon to give you. It’s a Litwick, a Ghost/Fire type found in Unova. Second, there’s been flooding in Carnelian City, so we will have to rearrange your schedule and find another gym leader for you to face after the gym in Azure City. There have been some nasty thunderstorms up around that area for the past two days. Lastly, you’ll be heading to Hoenn rather than Johto next. There has been some issues with gym clearance over in Johto, so we have to make it your last stop.” “Wow,” I said astonished. “Thanks for the Litwick, and I was hoping to go to Hoenn next. I really love it over there.” “Well, I’m glad,” Professor Juniper said. “You should take time to relax here, since the next train doesn’t leave until 12:15, a little over an hour away.” “Alrighty then!” I affirmed and left the Pokémon Center to sit at a Starbucks and relax in a comfy chair. I guess today was a travel day, but not in the amazing fresh air.

   I was back on the train, sitting and waiting to arrive in Valse Town. I decided to take a nap with Emolga curled up on my lap as I napped and Charmeleon stood watch to wait until we arrived in Valse Town. I had a pleasant rest of being only semi aware of my surroundings and multiple people walking past me as I was in twilight sleep. A little past 3, a chime over the sound system tolled, “Now Approaching Valse Town. If you are getting off in Valse Town, please assemble near the door for quick unloading.” Charmeleon poked me and I slowly got up, still somewhat sleepy from my dozing off.

   We exited the train and I grabbed my bike off the train. We were back in the heart of Mérin Wine Country, filled with small country cafés and wine bars. I hopped on with Emolga sitting on my shoulder and Stunky on the back of my bike. Charmeleon wanted to nap, so he went back in the Poké Ball. I quickly pedaled west out of Valse Town onto Route 165. As I exited the city, a sign said, “Lilac City, 12mi/19km.” “I guess we’re going to see Lilac City on our way west,” I told Emolga and Stunky. The journey out of Valse Town was spectacular. We were passing through the wondrous, vast wineries surrounding Valse Town, however once we reached a steel arch bridge crossing a river a hundred feet below, a vast change in landscape appeared. The fields turned lush, not rocky. The grapes turned another shade of purple, lavender. We were passing through lush fields of lavender as well as lilacs, tulips and daffodils. It was just fields of flowers. We arrived in Lilac city right after 4. It was a smaller city, located on the Azure River. It was like the city of Hamburg, in Germany. The Elbe River running through it, but it seems smaller because of the way the city is laid out. It seemed like a place to live that had the appeal of a city but still quiet enough of a larger town. It was somewhat of an idyllic setting with all the flower fields surrounding the city. We all stopped at a small restaurant for an early dinner and just to take a small break from the bike ride, because Azure City was still another 58 miles from Lilac City.

   After filling up on Greek food at the restaurant I went to, I continued west on Route 169. Another city name popped up on a sign: Pear Town in 21mi/34km. I guess that was the place I’d be stopping for the night. Mérin’s beautiful landscape changed yet again to a majestic view. The plains turned to groves of fruit trees, of many fruits imaginable. It was nice to see the rolling landscape of trees as far as the eye can see. I kept on seeing Pokémon trainers and their respective battles as I rode by and I continued forward (even being stopped by a few trainers to battle). I smoked them out and continued on. They thought I’d be easy bait with a bicycle with a Stunky riding on a bike. However after a few miniscule battles, Stunky faced the battle of his life against a Sandslash. He ended up evolving into a Stunktank, however this new power got the best of him and I had to recall him and finish the job with Charmeleon (even though Lapras made more sense). Charmeleon remained on guard as I continued forward.

   After another half hour on the road, we reached a small town where I was able to call Professor Magnolia and tell her where I was as well as heal Stunktank. It was probably a town of a little under 10,000, but the Main Street area was bustling with people. That day, it was a farmers market. People were peddling their freshly picked wares and their freshly made sundries and pies. It was a nice place to stop and really take in the Miltank scent with fresh produce. I then continued on the road towards Pear Town, watching the sun creep slowly over the groves and the faint lights beginning to appear in the town ahead.

   About a mile outside of Pear Town, I discovered a brown lump lying on the side of the road. I rode by slowly to check it out and thought it was just a Sentret or a Zigzagoon and continued right a long until I discovered its tail. It was a little bear cub, most likely the offspring of either a brown bear, however it is far from it’s natural habitat, so I ruled that out. I got off and had Charmeleon help me get it on my bike. I was shocked. What was a Teddiursa doing in this part of the region? Bears belong in forests, not orchards, mountains, not plains. Something seemed out of the ordinary. I told Charmeleon to watch over it and I pedaled to Pear Town.

   I rushed into the Pokémon Center with the Teddiursa and I immediately explained to Nurse Joy what had happened and asked her to help. She told me it would all be fine and I should come back in an hour or so. Nurse Joy quickly took in the Teddiursa as I went outside. Pear Town was more of the quaint medieval town rather than the more modern one. The lamps lighting were faux flames, the streets were cobblestone rather than the tar or cement roads of Peach City, the signs were hand made. The buildings still had electricity, but it was basically a blend of Amish with Catholic with Modern appeal. The streets looked dimmer than the normal lit street, the streets were bustling with horse drawn carriages with cars going on an outer loop around the town. It felt as if I was out in the middle of nowhere with the sky, scents and feelings but I was surrounded by people going about their daily lives.

   I returned to see Nurse Joy a little over an hour later and she let me in to see Teddiursa. It was actually standing up, still a bit week, but quite feisty for the state it was in. “Do you know what happened to this Teddiursa?” Nurse Joy asked concerned. “No,” I solemnly replied. “I found it on the side of the route just a mile from the outside of the town. I found it to be quite odd to see a Teddiursa around this area. Do you know if you’ve seen one around town recently?” “I don’t think anyone in town trains one,” Nurse Joy said. “I’ve lived here my whole life and I don’t know of anyone who’d have one.” “Well, it’s a trainerless Pokémon, possibly wild and far from home,” I answered. “I’ll capture it and then release it if I find it’s home or parents.” I took a Poké Ball and caught it with ease. I guess it knew that I was looking out for it.

==End of Chapter 18==

Hey Everyone,

I am putting this story on permanent hiatus unless I really have the urge to write a new chapter. There's just no more intrinsic motivation + there's lots of schoolwork I have to deal with.

I really do enjoy writing, but I need to find something that would be kinda super awesome. I'm thinking an awesome NSM story is in the works, but I still have to crunch some numbers and iron out details before I move forward.

Maybe if I have some downtime at work over the summer, I'll finish this.

I have also placed a link to the document of the entire story for those who want to read it without the funky changes when the forum went awol when it got updated on the front page of this topic! Enjoy!

Re: Steps to Simplicity - Chapter 10: A Stone Cold Feeling is LÀ-HAUT
« Reply #123 on: February 08, 2014, 10:10:52 AM »

The next installment of Steps to Simplicity ist auch!! I've added more "real-world" things and kinda mixed up some things a bit!

Chapter 11: Power like the Sun
   After healing Lapras from the gym battle, I decided to set out into Veilstone City to explore the city. I stocked up on some supplies at the Department Store. It was Free TM day in the store, so they kept on handing me all these TMs that I probably never would have used. I spent the entire day exploring the city and its environs, so I ventured out of the city into the hills, only to find trainers. People were surprised that a person who beat Maylene would be busy battling against others, but I just kept on saying that Maylene was a hard obstacle to overcome. They all challenged me to a battle after that, and Piplup constantly took out their Pokémon, and by the end, I should say that Prinplup, and Shinx was able to get a few punches in there and managed to evolve into a Luxio. It was a great day, coming back with two newly evolved Pokémon and discovering a quite impatient Professor Araragi pouting with her legs and arms crossed in the front lobby of the Pokémon Center. “What did I do?” I asked innocently. “You missed dinner,” Professor Araragi said quietly. “Well, I was out training. Piplup and Shinx evolved after knocking down seven trainers,” I explained myself. “THAT STILL DOESN’T GIVE YOU THE FREAKING REASON TO MISS FREAKING DINNER,” Professor Araragi erupted. “YOU SHOULD HAVE KNOWN I HAD SOMETHING IMPORTANT TO TELL YOU!” Everyone was looking at Professor Araragi now. “You know you have to not become attached to me whenever you want to eat something,” I said and stormed into the room and got on the computer.
   I told myself not go on a certain website that I was once addicted to. I sat in front of the computer with the browser displaying “Wikipedia” right in front of me, I clicked the URL bar and entered “facebook.com” into the bar and logged in. There in front of me showed a war zone. I had over 100 new notifications, mostly wall posts and pokes. Everyone was wondering where I was since I was alone. I also forgot to mention that I had a bunch of new friend requests, namely from Maylene, Erika, Professor Elm and Professor Oak. What was really funny, right when I accepted Professor Elm, BOOM, his little chat box came popping up. He asked me what I was doing and I responded plain and simple, “Get off your computer, Professor Elm. I believe your kitchen is on fire.” I wrote a nice note to all my friends living in Pallet Town, Viridian City and everyone back home, saying that I was now in Sinnoh and I promised a bunch of pictures. So now, I had to find a camera and start taking pictures of my travels. Pokémon Trainers don’t really focus on pictures and more on Pokémon, but I just want to be that guy who wants to catalog his journey and to make sure I can reflect on my memories twenty years in the future, since things only happen once.
   After going back out to escape Professor Araragi’s wrath to go to a nice restaurant for dinner and working with Munchlax to curb the eating habits like I did a few years back. Let’s just say it didn’t end well, but on the plus side, I get to buy a bigger backpack! I went out of the Veilstone South Gate and found a trainer who wanted to battle and Ponyta took the brunt of the battle and really worked hard. Munchlax just wandered off to find a berry tree during the battle and by the time I found him, only half of the tree didn’t have fruit. Maybe I actually got to Munchlax (or maybe the synthetic fibers that made up my backpack were wreaking havoc on his stomach)! I returned back to the Pokémon Center to find a passed out Professor Araragi with a couple of empty Wine and Tequila bottles on her bed. I went to sleep, laughing at what I just saw.
   Well, maybe I was either super tired or didn’t notice anything, but Professor Araragi made a huge mess with the contents of her suitcase. I had the nice pile of stuff from my backpack in the corner and I placed the pile on my bed and rushed out. I went to the Department Store, where I found a nice camera and backpack in the Trainer Apparel section. The instant I got back, the room was tidied up and my stuff was neatly laid out on my bed, Professor Araragi on her computer working endlessly trying to send an email. “You know, you have to access your email account first before you send it,” I told the professor. “I don’t know how to use this system, usually the email comes straight to my computer,” Professor Araragi answered. “But this isn’t your computer and it isn’t set up like it, I’m guessing,” I answered. I proceeded to open up a web browser and went to her email site, and I left again with my Pokémon. The sun was shining brighter today; the gray veil was lifted over the city. I decided to walk around. There was another casino type building like the one in Celadon, so I decided to head towards that part of the city. On my way towards that area, Maylene ran straight into me not looking where she was going, knocking me to the ground.
    “Oh, Drew, I am so sorry,” Maylene answered. “I was actually heading to the Pokémon Center to see you.” “You were?” I asked. “Yep,” Maylene replied. “I have a favor to ask of you. It seems one of my Pokémon had an egg and it finally hatched, and I can’t take care of a baby Pokémon, but since you’re travelling across Sinnoh, I thought it would be better to go with you.” “But, I am not sure if I can take it,” I answered. “Since I have restrictions on what Pokémon I can carry.” “I don’t think it should be a problem. You don’t have a Fighting type, correct?” Maylene asked. “No, I don’t,” I responded. “See, you should be fine.” Maylene said handing me a Poké ball. “And if you have 6 Pokémon, you can catch whatever you want, just as long as it is not in your party. Well, that’s what Cynthia said.” “Well, thanks Maylene!” I exclaimed. “I really have to go, but maybe I’ll see you again!” Maylene yelled as she took off heading for that casino place. I threw up the Poké ball and out came this tiny Pokémon. It looked like a fox, but it was blue. I opened my Pokédex and it said, “This is Riolu, the Emanation Pokémon. He has an Impish nature and knows the moves: Counter, Force Palm, Crunch and Drain Punch.” Riolu just sat there looking at me. “Well, it looks like Maylene wants me to take care of you,” I said. I picked up Riolu and walked him back to the Pokémon Center. Riolu was a bit shy at first, but he warmed up to me and kept on wanting to stand on my head. Professor Araragi smiled as I walked into the foyer of the Pokémon Center. “So this is the Riolu that Maylene was talking about. Well, aren’t you a cutie,” Professor Araragi said pulling his cheeks apart and making goo-goo noises at Riolu. “Professor, Riolu is a Pokémon, not a chubby baby,” I said. “Oh, right,” Professor Araragi said. “I do have good news. Get packed, because we leave for Lake Valor immediately, and then we should be able to reach Sunyshore City from there.” “Is that where my next gym battle is?” I asked. “No, duh,” Professor Araragi said. I ran into my room and shoved all my stuff into my pack and ran back outside, where we proceeded to get on our bikes and continued south out of Veilstone City.
   Riolu was riding in the basket, since Prinplup almost got stuck in the basket, and Prinplup took Luxio’s spot, because Luxio was just too heavy for the back, and Prinplup was a little heavier than Riolu, so it was kind of hard to get going after a rest stop. We continued for another seven hours, stopping every hour or so. Luckily for us, Route 214 was a steady decline into some lowlands with some hills. Lake Valor was in one of the larger valleys with a large resort resting atop the hills surrounding the lake. There were some larger villas and houses on the north side of the lake. People were enjoying the day, and were either sunbathing, out in the water or just having lunch in cafes along the lake. It reminded me of the French Riviera, but it was in a colder climate, yet it was usually warm for this time of year… when there was snow in Veilstone City, there was 70° weather just 100 miles south… yes, we spent 6 hours going south, but we were going almost 20 miles an hour, since the decline from Veilstone, which I learned was almost 4,000 feet above sea level. We stayed the night in a small villa overlooking the lake and I decided to go into the lake side to let Lapras out and Prinplup to have some fun in the water. I sat there sitting with Ponyta, Luxio, Munchlax and Riolu just talking to them and Luxio still slept on my lap, even though he weighed nearly 60 pounds.
Munchlax proceeded to search for berry tree, and managed to climb one and he nestled himself in the tree. I then discovered his place, tried to get him out, but I discovered shaking the tree jarred him from tree, making him land with a seismic THUD. An idea popped into my head, as did one in Munchlax’s. He discovered that when I shook the tree, it caused all the Pecha berries to fall off the tree, so now he can just shake the tree. My idea is that I might be able to teach Munchlax Earthquake, like I did with Blastoise. I took Munchlax to the top of the hill and I proceeded to instruct Munchlax how to make an earthquake. Munchlax was a bit different from Blastoise, he had to jump in the air and focus his energy on the ground, which worked after a few times, causing a small crack to from down the hill and when it hit the concrete sidewalk at the bottom of the hill, it caused a small, pointy upheaval in the ground, just missing Luxio. I tried to pick up Munchlax, but man was HE heavy. He probably weighed more than I did. I returned to the bottom of the hill, took some pictures of the area and of my Pokémon having fun and preceded back to the villa, where I found Professor Araragi sleeping in her lab coat and in a strange position, so I took a picture of her and went to bed.
The next morning, we were off on Route 222 and it was in major contrast to what landscapes I saw. There was the beach off to the right of us and some hills with pine trees to the left of us. Trainers kept stopping us, asking for me to battle, so it took us three hours to go the 20 miles we needed to go, but Munchlax put up some great fights, as well as Ponyta. I liked this route a bit, it felt calming because you had a beach, which meant relaxation and hills with trees, which can show quietness in certain instances, but right when we passed through the gatehouse into Sunyshore, and there was a big contrast from what we came from. The city was high tech, laden with solar panels and large walkways suspended over the city, connecting the tall hills of the city together. The city was extremely clean; there wasn’t any smog nor was there trash on the ground (which was alleviated by solar powered trash cleaning robots). We arrived at the Pokémon Center, a large building that looked like the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, but covered with solar panels. We walked inside, and a voice greeted us and directed us to the front desk, where three Nurse Joy worked. “Good Afternoon Professor and Drew, welcome to Sunyshore City.” the middle Nurse Joy said. “I am the head nurse here, and you can tell me apart by the Blue cross on my hat.” “Well, thank you,” Professor Araragi answered. “I can tell you apart from the others another way!” Nurse Joy blushed when she looked over at me.
She stood up and came out in front of the desk and then I saw it. Nurse Joy was a little fatter than the others. “So, how long do you have left?” Professor Araragi asked. “Almost a week left!” Nurse Joy said elated. “I’m training my replacement right now, and we have someone else to cover her job here, since Sunyshore only has one Pokémon Center, but we’re the largest in the country.” I just ignored what they were saying and asked one of the other Nurse Joy where the gym was, and left the Pokémon Center. I was planning on using Munchlax, and luckily for me, he didn’t incur any damage from the battling that I did with the last three trainers. I arrived at the gym, where the doors opened and greeted me like the Pokémon Center, except there were some large lounge chairs in the room and the gym told me to sit down. The moment I sat down was the moment the chair began to move forward into another room, which then took me on a short rollercoaster ride, and dropped me (literally) into a large gym. There was a battle going on, so I just sat to the side and waited. The challenger lost against the leader’s Raichu. He did use a Vaporeon, however, so I wouldn’t blame him. I walked down to the floor where the leader walked up to me. “Good Afternoon and welcome to the Sunyshore Gym. I am Volkner, the leader here. Do you have an appointment?” Volkner asked. “No,” I answered. “Well, I am sorry, but I am booked up for the next month for gym battles,” Volkner said. “You can make an appointment with the computer in the front lounge.” “You don’t understand, I’m here on special circumstances,” I answered. “Well, I would too if I was here to obtain my eighth badge, too,” Volkner said and proceeded to walk away. “I’m here challenging the Verdant League,” I called out. Volkner stopped in his tracks and turned around. “Then I accept your challenge,” he said.
“We’ll use two Pokémon for this battle,” Volkner said. He threw up a Poké ball, sending out a Luxio. I sent out Ponyta, just to get things going. Luxio started off with Thunder Fang, and Ponyta dodged it and used Stomp right where Luxio screeched to a halt. Luxio landed another quick Thunder Fang on Ponyta and Ponyta was able to escape its grasp after some time. Ponyta used Flamethrower and was countered by a Discharge attack. They neutralized each other, causing a large explosion. After the smoke cleared, Luxio came charging with a Headbutt attack, and Ponyta was able to torch Luxio as it came charging at Ponyta and it did deal some damage, but Luxio was so resilient that he followed through with the attack and knocked out Ponyta. I sent out Munchlax next, who was a secret weapon in a way. Volkner instructed Luxio to use Iron Tail, and Munchlax knocked him back with Zen Headbutt. Munchlax used Earthquake next, which caused some upheavals in the gym floor to hit Luxio after dodging the attack and thus made him faint. Volkner sent out Magneton next, and Volkner showed a devious smile. He didn’t know that Munchlax could use Flamethrower. Munchlax was able to start moving toward Magneton, who started using SonicBoom attacks, and Munchlax was able to push on, this meant taking a few hits. Once up close, Munchlax landed a nice Lick attack and then went for a double whammy with Flamethrower, much to the shock of Volkner, whose eyes were beginning to come out of his skull. Magneton used Charge Beam, and it hit Munchlax, but just powered through and knocked Magneton to the ground with a Flamethrower. Munchlax used Earthquake for one final blow and knocked out Magneton after that. Volkner just stood there, shocked that someone with my experience beat him.
“Well, congratulations Drew,” Volkner said. “It takes a lot to beat someone like me.” “Well, I definitely had a harder time than my battle with Maylene, which was pretty hard as it was,” I answered. “At least you aren’t the flaunting type if you win something, huh?” Volkner asked. “You can say that!” I answered. “Well, I would like to give you the Beacon Badge as proof of beating me,” Volkner said. “You can take this Thunderbolt TM with you, as you may need it sometime in the future.” Volkner handed me back my badge case with a shiny lighthouse looking badge added to the bottom of the triangle. “Your journeys may take you places that make you wonder about the significance, but I know you will continue forward through your journeys. Go forth; your next gym leader awaits you.” I went toward the entrance and by the time I reached the door to the hallway, Volkner was gone. The moment I got out, I called that strange woman. “Hello Mysterious Person, it’s Drew and I just shocked Volkner,” I said. “Well, congratulations Drew,” the woman said. “You know, your next battle may leave you with a chill down your spine, as she might leave you feeling cold if you don’t use the right tactics.” “Sounds like a challenge I am ready for,” I replied. “I think I have prepared myself for the worst.” I continued walking toward the Pokémon Center, making sure Riolu, who was walking with me didn’t do anything mischievous. “You know, Drew, this leader has some tricks up her sleeve,” the woman said. “Oh, I’ll be ready,” I answered. “I have some tricks I have been teaching my Pokémon to outsmart these leaders.” “Well, good luck to you Drew,” the woman said. “See you later!” and she hung up right after that.
I continued back to the Pokémon Center to find the entire place cleared out, except for a single Nurse Joy sitting there. “Oh, hello Drew,” Nurse Joy said. “I’m afraid the Professor had to step out with the head Nurse. She went into labor, so they went to the hospital on the other side of town.” “Oh, so THAT’S why she was fat,” I thought to myself. “Well, tell the Professor I will be out on Route 222 practicing,” I said and I left with my bike. I wanted to train Riolu and Lapras a little bit, even though Lapras was at a higher level than any of my Pokémon. I went into the woods and saw some many Pokémon, namely a Glameow and a Stunky who followed me around while I found some trainers to battle with. Riolu did a great job with his first few battles, really getting into it, down and dirty. His speed was impeccable and he was able to Force Palm his way to greatness against a Bibarel, a Staravia and a Girafarig (well, he had to use Crunch at times there). Once I left the woods, I sat down on a tree stump to eat lunch and the Glameow and Stunky were still there. “Do you want food?” I asked. I threw some food over to them, but they just ignored it, so I had Munchlax clean it up. Riolu could since what they wanted and hugged my leg as some sort of sign. “Were you abandoned?” I asked. They stepped closer to Riolu and I, while Munchlax tested his new idea of shaking a tree for berries, except a wild Burmy fell on his head. I brought Glameow and Stunky close to me. “I wish I could care for you, but my party is already full. If I just caught you, you would be sent back to my hometown in Kanto, a place far from here, where you would be on the Professor’s Ranch,” I explained. They came up even closer and cuddled in on my lap. Somehow these Pokémon were abandoned and felt distraught, so I decided to call the one person who would know what to do.

“Hello, Professor Oak,” I said speaking into my Poké Gear. “It’s Drew.” “Why hello Drew,” Professor Oak said. “How are your journeys in Sinnoh?” “They have been great,” I answered. “I just beat Volkner, so I have two badges left and then it’s off to Merin.” “Well, congratulations,” Professor Oak said. “Well, I am not calling just for chit-chat,” I explained. “I have a dilemma here. I was on Route 222 having some training sessions and a Glameow and Stunky followed me around. They seem distraught about something, and they have seemed to be abandoned. They are somehow finding security in me, and I told them they can’t travel with me, yet they still want to stay close.” “Well, that certainly is a dilemma,” Professor Oak responded. “They can sense the compassion coming from the Pokémon beside you and how you act with them. Go on and capture them, and they will have a great time here.” “They’re here right now,” I said. I showed Professor Oak to them. “I’ll catch you guys and you can stay with my friend, here and then I can come and visit you when I am back in Kanto. Who knows, you might be able to stay with my Skitty and Growlithe at home.” They smiled. “I’ll get them over immediately. I’ll call once I am in Merin and see how they’re doing.” “Have fun with your last two battles, Drew. Good Luck!” Professor Oak said and hung up. “Have fun with Professor Oak, guys. See you soon,” I yelled. I threw Poké balls at them and they were captured instantly. Right after they were caught, the entire ball began to glow and then it disappeared in a ray of light pointing to the sky. Professor Oak sent me an email saying that he got them and I walked with Munchlax and Riolu back to Sunyshore City.
