Dan Goise sat up on his bed just as his alarm went off. It had been a long restless night.
He had that night of something big is going to happen. It was a inner instinct but he didnt know how to respond.
But he had bigger priorities now. It was 6:00 in the morning, and he had to open up the shop at pier 18.
He was the employee of Crispy Crunch Candies. Yet another overpriced candy shop in Ocean City, Maryland.
He pulled on his jeans and slipped into his button down shirt.
He loved his job. Not because it paid well (Because it did), but because he could make his own rules as he went. He wasnt the owner but he may as well been.
He wore whatever he wanted. He still wanted to dress nice. But being Ocean City, as long as you werent streaking youd be fine.
Dan put his cellphone in his front left pocket, wallet in the back.
He often enjoyeed his job because he could experiment with fashions. Like today he was wearing his favorite crimson jeans and a black button down, along with. Black tie.
Ties with casual clothes were growing popular, but he had plenty of them.
He ran from his bed room to his bathroom and did a quick layer of aerosol deodorant and combed his hair.
Over in the kitchen of his apartment was a two dozen of his cream cheese and syrup stuffed waffles. His specialty.
Another perk of his job was, if it was sweet he could sell it. Of course he had to give 50 percent of his earnings to his boss. Bu. He had long since enjoyed sharing his creations with customers. Honestly his boss probably was his number one customer. Last weak he sold his chocolate-almond brittle. A candy yes, but with quality that would make Willy Wonka blush.
He had a order of Maqui berries coming from Chile any day now for his famous Maqui berry dumplings.
He grabbed the container and grabbed a apple from the fruit tray in the fridge.
He put everything in a blue laptop bag and dashed out the door with gusto as he hated to be late.
He rolled his 12 speed bike with him as he went towards the stair well.
One of his long time talents had been biking. In a city with tourists and local traffic everywhere, it was best to use a bike.
Few in the area were as skilled as Dan. He had recently been donned Daniel Kenivel but one of his freinds.
It was no understatement, he looked down at the grass one story below. It was a breeze for him to ride down to, as he had done every day for almost 4 years.
He leaped onto the seat and let the momentum pull him down, using gravity and the slope to his advantage. Quickly speeding up as he turned to the final ten steps to his right.
He surged forward blazing into the street and cutting between cars that were in the traffic jam of the hour.
His legs had been fortified by years of honing. He had no formal training, he just had his routine to maintain.
He turned at a rapid 90 degree angle.
Between him and his destination was a dozen clusters of tourists and a quarter mile stretch of boardwalk.
But that didnt stop him. He saw a tipped over store sign and he pushed forward using that item of interest to hurtle him through the air over three tourists and a dog who found his beloved fire hydrant.
He landed hard but he landed well enough to finish the last stretch.
He pulled around back of the shop and put his key into the lock.
With a buzz the door opened. He put the bike in the employee lounge and he went into the lobby where he cleaned the cases.
He put his waffles into a cool glass box and placed it on the counter by the jawbreakers and assorted lollipops.
He was just fine. All was set and he had 15 minutes to spare.
Just as he was opening the gate his cellphone rang. He finished opening the gate and awnsered the phone on the 3rd round of Numbers by Basshunter.
"Hello?" He said
"Hello Is Mister Goy-Zee around?" Said a male voice.
"Yes this is him, also its pronounced like Guy-ZZ." Dan explained. He had one of those names where half of people who pronounced it got it wrong. He hated it.
"Yes my name is Mark Kazinski from The Produce Exchange. Your order is here. I am at your address. However i assume you are not at home?" it there another address of which i may drop it off at? It would likely go bad in this heat.
"Actually i am at work. My shop is not to far. " he said. This was TPE was the company he ordered foreign produce through. Maqui berries were one of Dans' favorites.
"Ill have to move your location till around 2:00 but i can diliver to there if you wish." said the delivery guy
He gave the delivery man his location and left off returning to his duties.
Quickly he sweeped the floor one last time. Making sure all was good and ready.
He turned on the dubstep mix on the speaker system, tuning it to a easy listening level, yet enjoyable.
He looked at the clock on the register.
It was time to open.
It was finally close to the end of his anxious wait. He had waited 5 weeks for these exotic fruits.
It was almost 1:30 pm when his coworkers came in to beging his shift.
" Hows business?" said Kenneth. Who was also his boss.
Good i guess. Alot of cavities out.
"I also made some of my waffles. I saved a couple for you. The rest are sold."
"I swear youre a pro at this. But id wish youd save me some." said his other co worker Samanth
"I would but youd be a diabetic." Daniel said
"What about Kenny over here. You dont have an issue with giving him diabietes. "
"Well hes my number one customer...why would i do that." daniel said as his boss handed him 5 bucks.
"By the way the Maqui i had ordered are in town. I had to get them delivered here since i wasn't home." he said.
"Theyll be here around 2. Is that okay?" he said.
"Those are those fruits from south america you mentioned the other day right?" said Samantha.
"Thats right you werent here last time he made stuff with them. The maqui berry pudding and the pie were awsome. Tasted so good. Supposedly its healthy too." Said Kenneth.
"When does it loose its health trait? When i put the 2 lbs of sugar in it, or when you eat a whole pie by yourself. " Daniel said.
"What will you make this time?"
"I am thinking about struedel. Maybe stuffed bacon."
"Stuffed bacon?" said kenneth. "I think we discovered where it becomes unhealthy."
Why dont you go punch in. Ill think more on it." dan said as he saw the :59 on the clock switch to :00.
He saw a 8 year old girl who was crying.
"Hello, are you okay?" he said as he looked for her mother, or a person she came with.
"Where is your family?" he asked
"I i cant find them." she cried.." im scared.." she sobbed barely understandable words. Typical kid language, but being he himself had some nieces. He had to help her.
"Do you like candy?" he retorted. "Pick one out." he said
"Kenneth, Sam? I am going to head out can you pickup my order when it arrives?"
"Yeah whatever. If you die im suing you for neglecting to make more goodies." said kenneth
Daniel felt wierd walking with a little girl he knew nothing about. He was worried hed look like one of those creepers one tv.
But he didnt care what people thought, his priority was helping the kid.
He grabbed a bag of various candies for the kid. He knew candy was like gold for kids.
"Who did you come with?" he asked." Whats your name child?"
"I came with my sisters. " she said as she wiped her eyes of tears.
"My name is Uxie." she said
"Wait like the pokemon?" he asked. Even though he was an adult he had much experience playing pokemon games. Eve. At points going to competitions.
"Yes." she said as she ate a piece of candy out of the bag.
"Where was the last place that you saw your sisters." he asked.
She led him from the shop down to an alley way between two closed shops.
It was then he noticed something wasnt right. First of all Uxie is a made up name, now he was going to an alleyway with a little girl he had just met.
He knew something was strange. But he doubted anything bad could happen.
"Are you sure they were down here?" he asked when two girls the same age and size appeared from the shadows.
"Mesprit, Azelf." said Uxie.
It was then that he began backing away.
"Sir, can you stay. We want to thankyou for bringing our little sister.
"Its okay. Im sure youll be fine."
"You wouldnt leave three girls in an alleyway would you?" said one with purple dyed hair.
He knew he was going to be freaked, maybe he was being punked. But he wanted out. It was getting to wierd.
"Andrew? Dont leave, we want to talk."
He could have swore he wet himself. "I have a feeling you are not girls." he said as he prayed his pant were clean.
"Awe, thats mean...of course were girls." said another of the girls who eyes the candy bag with lust. "What did you think we were?"
"I dont know, but there is no way youd know my name. No way. " he explained. "Ive gone by a different name for 2 years now.
"Oh right Daniel... Because of your fathers passing."
"How did you." daniel tried to ask
"You seem to be a unique person Andrew...eh em, Daniel. But now that youre here, lets talk."
Daniel wanted to freak out, there was no way these were the 3 fictional characters.must be someone posing as a joke. But knowledge is only explainable until they breach upon something that no one in the state knows. Even if they did, how did 3 young girls know so much. "
"You hinted at it before when you asked Uxies name?"
"You cant be? Them. The thought pokemon "
"No thats Ralts, but yes your on the right track. But we see youre having trouble here. "
"Musta had bad tacos last night." he thought to himself.
"No were real. Its about time we found a worthy person. "
Daniel was amazed. But still in denial." they have psychic powers, and can fly. You are just human kids. You have to be joking."
Instantly all three of them glowed. As daniel was forced to blink he saw the impossible. All three were floating pokemon.
"Now do you believe it?" said Azelf
"No. But whatever you have to say, say it. I have to return to work." he said.
"Sadly it will be your last shift." said Uxie obviously not a crying girl anymore.
"The candy of this world is so tasty." commented Mesprit as she ate a Twizzler.
"What to you mean last shift?" He asked confused.
"Tonight at 12:42 the world will come to an end.
"But you have been choosen to escape its demise." Uxie said
"Oh my Psyduck this fudge is good." said Mesprit. "Want some Uxie?"
"Wait, the world is going to end? Why? If it is why are you telling me?"
"Because you were chosen. " she said as she accepted the gudge from Mesprit." Lord Palkia And Mistress Dialga have decided to destroy this world being it is unfit to exist."
Daniel was taken back at the comment, unsure how to react."Why is it unfit to exist? Its got many good people. It may not be exciting, but its a good world. Just because it has no pokemon in it doesnt mean it should be destroyed."
A moment of silence. "Wait, you said Palkia and Dialga? Why is it so important to destroy this world?"
"Because there is a pokemon that calls this place home? You dont know it but he is active in your world. But he creates chaos. Only way to stop him is to destory his roots. But alas he wont be a problem any more." said Azelf as she ate a skittle.
Daniel stopped and thinked. A single pokemon did live here. But it was an evil pokemon? One that also was a big enough issue to get dialga and palkia involved.
"Is it the third of the trio. This is a world without pokemon. Only pokemon i can think of is maybe Giratina."
"Exactly, hes always causing trouble. But you have been chosen to leave here. Honestly if could have been anyone but we choose you. " said Azelf
"But why me? There isnt anything special about me."
"True, but you are about as good of a person as they come here, and you left your comfort to help Uxie... who is always getting lost." she glanced at Uxie who was obviously embarrased.
"Will anyone else from here come? Can i bring my family?" Daniel asked concerned, he wasnt close to anyone particurally, but he was far from selfish.
"Sadly the masters permit limited passage. As to many are unperdictable." said Mesprit.
"What if i refuse? I love my family and freinds. I could never leave them behind." he said
"Well after you graduated from highschool you went overseas all by yourself. You made fine then. But if youd rather be erased from the tapastry of time and space. So be it."
"It ends in the middle of the night. May i at least think about it? And if i do leave can i bring my belongings."
"It is preferable. As we recommend that you do. Itl be easier for you to settle."
"Where would i end up?" he asked.
"Well that is up to fate. Youll end up somewhere random. We have no permission to do anything else other than send you there. "
"Where would we meet? If i decide to go?"
"Your place of course. " said Uxie. "At 12:00."
He turned and began jogging back towards his work. He didnt beleive his ears. He didnt want to. But it was too real.
The world was going to likely end.
He finally returned to his shop where Samantha was left closing down. "By the way Kenneth had to go home, something with his son at school."
"Oh." he muttered. At least his boss would be with his family when it all ended.
"Yes! Finally... I got someone to trade me a Kingdra. " said Samantha.
Samantha was a mild gamer. But she played pokemon most of the time when the shop was slow.
"Hey Samantha i have a few questions? " he knew she was more about the lore, he was about the game itself and fighting.
"Wasup?" samantha said as she folded her Nintendo DS.
"Did you know Girantina is an evil pokemon?"
"Did you know that nintendo used to be a playing card company back in the 1800s?"
"No, But im being serious."
"Yes, it is the ruler of the singular dimension. Dialga and Palkia rule the pokemon dimension."
"What about the pokemon mesprit, uxie, and azelf? Whats thier connection to the story?"
"Not much there. They just i guess help keep the balance of things." she said. "Why all these random questions?"
"I had a freaky experience. While i was out helping a lost kid...i met.." he didnt know how to explain it, without sounding crazy.
"Saw what?" she asked more interested.
"I met mesprit, uxie, and azelf."
"Hahaha." Samantha started laughing hysterically."yeah and i saw Obamas lie detector tests."
"No im being serious....they told me something aweful." Daniel said desperatly.
"What...your jokes suck?"
"No that this world is going to be destroyed tonight by palkia and dialga."
"Wait youre serious." she said as she noticed Daniels mood hadnt changed." have you been trying the grass?"
"No they told me its going to be destroyed...because girantina lives here.,,its going to be destoryed at 12:42."
"Youre kidding..." she said as her facial expression changed.
"Do you believe me?"
"I dont know. But i know you wouldnt know the importance of that number. I know you arent into the extra stuff in the lore of the game series."
"Why, what is important about it?"
"Im many places 12:42 isnt written as that, but as 00:42 or plain 42. That is a number that is important to Arceus. The one who created the absolute universe. The one who created everything before pokemon existed. Only he or she...or it could destory a dimension."
"Okay. But there is more. If been told...i am going to be spared. But no one else."
"Why you? You aint anything special. Heck at least i manage to clean my shoe scuffs off the floor?" she said half joking.
"I responded that way. All they said was i was worth it. I have to decide, but ill be meeting them in my apartment tonight at 12:00. Im not sure what to do. It sounds like id be dropped off and left to fend for myself."
"Well it sounds like some heavy stuff. but if this is the end of the world. I aint staying here."she said "Who woulda thought."
I was supposed to take a vacation in the bahamas next week, but looks like ill have to miss it this time. Ill probably just get as wasted as i can.
"If you believe me. I know im supposed to go alone, but maybe i can get you to come. Id hate to go alone, and being you know alot about pokemon wed be better off together. I dont see a better way to quit work. I was told i can pack to leave so ill have some stuff."
"It sounds like we should get ready then. Ill meet you at your place, anything we should bring?" Samantha asked. "Does this feel like were going out on a kind of date?"
"Bring your bike, and dont bring to much. Bring a single backpack." Daniel had no idea what itd be like after they went thru to the other world.
He pulled up an old note on his cellphone from his trip to chile. A list he used for when he hiked from puerto montt, chile up to barleoche,argentina.
He write it down on a recipt. Looking at the clock he saw it was 5.
Plenty ot time.
So he wrote
Bike, 3 changes of clothes, nothing fancy. 1 pair of boots, and one pair of sneakers. 1 set of emergency clothes, rainjacket, winterjacket, 10 sets of undergarments and socks, obviously a nessecity, a secondary bag for when we get there. Bring light dry good. Dried stuff. Ill bring more myself. Bring fire starting supplies, any emergency supplies. Bring toileties to last. We have no idea where well be. Ill bring a 5 ltr bottle of water. But bring a liter or 2 liter yourself. We dont know if dirty water is that bad there or what. Bring anything you have of value, jewlery, or anything youd thing youd be able to sell. Ill bring my coin collection. Its all gold and silver, some platinum so itll be worth something. Bring a decent flashlight with a dozen or so batteries. Ill bring all this the same. But because i have experience being on a long distance travel on foot, ill bring extra stuff. But stick to this. Ill print out and laminate a pokedex type thing. Dont bring your phone. Text me any important pictures you want me to laminate. Also be there by 9 if you arent ready bring what you have. We may be unable to go together but at least we can try."
He handed her the note. "Also the trio likes candy. So bring a bag, you may win them over. " he said
"Wow. This is amazing. I feel like a kid again. Its good my family and i dont get along. How do you think youll be able to get by with out them?" she said as they both began to collect thier favorite candies aswell as some for the legendary trio.
He pulled out all the cash from the safe. Hed stop by a jewelery store. He knew gold was valuable anywhere.
"If you need help call me okay?" he said.
He grabbed his bike. There was no turning back now.
His co worker, he had a crush on since they met. But this was serious. The two last humans from Earth. Well his Earth.
He heard Samantha drive away in her Toyota. Just as he darted across the street from the boardwalk.
He turned and rushed towards the nearest jewerly store and pulled his bike into the lobby. He rested his bag on it. He paced over to the nearest salesperson.
His watch said 4:08.
"Good evening sir, are you looking for a band, or a watch or what? Anything for the lady?"
"Well maybe.."Daniel said "Honestly im here on a spree. We are looking to purchase gold pieces. I guess you could say we are investing in gold, you know for values sake. My boss sent me here for it.
Daniel counted out 32,400 dollars total. It was good his boss didnt use banks. He would also use his own Visa card if need be.
In most cases a jewelry store would call the police or something. Especially when a random guy walks in with 32,400 dollars cash...on a bike. But he knew the owner well,
"Its about time you came in Danny." said Chuck Campbell, the owner.
Last year Daniel helped Chuck with a fundraiser for his sons lukemia treatment. Raising 40,000 and change."
The salesperson explained it all to Chuck, who was more than happy to help. He hated to do this, giving a bunch of money to someone whoed never live long enough to use it.
"Im looking anything worth its wieght. Possibly raw stones, well be setting the stones in a current piece we have ready.
Daniel had no choice but to smash lies together. But he wondered how far his lies would last. But the thing is they werent really lies. He was investing in gold for the future. And he doubted a Ben Franklin could buy a pile of dirt in the Pokemon world.
But he knew from the games. Gold was gold, silver too. Both were worth money. Hopefully it was true.
"Between my card and our money combined. We are looking to get 35k in gold. Perhaps some loose stones. No cubic zircron. Maybe the rest in silver."
"You know we have a policy, but because i know you personally, heck i know everything about you kid. Ill do this myself. Also i know when one is lying. I know you well, to well. I also trust you well. "
"Barry, find what you can. This'll be half the months profit." said chuck.
The man he was talking to, Chuck and Barry all gather what they could. Listing and calculating prices.
"I have here 30k in gold, 10k in stones, all pure. Is that good enough?" asked Barry.
It wasnt quite what he wanted but itd be fine enough, potentially better. Between his load at home and this he had close to 100k in gold. Probably another 50k in stones.
"Okay thats fine." he passed over his cash, and his credit card. of course the payment was the least of his worries. Already close to an hour went by.
"Also, id like some watches. Four with batteries. Extra batteries. You know those are always a pain to get replaced." he said. One for him and one for Samantha. Batteries and a replacement. People didnt know how useful a watch can be.
He finished paying and signing a dozen papers. he put it all in his laptop bag. It was 6ish by the time he made it home to his apartment.
He then went to packing.
He packed several things. All he thought hed need without making his belongings to heavy. Of course he was rethinking bringing his bike. Or Sams. Itd just be alot of inconvinient wieght. But hed rather have alot of itsms that could be used then not have somethingt hey may need.
But he did manage to pack all else hed expect to need.
He wrote down his list of belongings. Keeping a inventory list was ideal.

He looked over his list and double checked. Eventually calming himself down. He neglected to write that he had a bottle of whiskey and 2 bottles of wine in the bags.
He judged his belongings noticing that itd be very heavy. Even for an experienced trekker. But his bike cart could hold it all. And easily hold twice what he had packed.
He put the cart on the bike. Which had much experience with this cart. As last year he turned it into a vending booth for soda and ice cream.
He put it all in a couple compartments. And locked the valuabled in the airtight cooler compartment. All would be fine. He had not forgotten anything.
Just then he heard a knock on the door.
It was Samantha.
I have my bag, but i couldnt bring my bike up here. Was to heavy on the steps.
"Just put yourstuff in the empty compartment. Fill the remaining bottles with water." Daniel said as he ran over to the stairs and down to the black bicycle. Which he grabbed with ease and. Carried up the steps.
The watch said it was 9:03.
Less than 3 hours. The big count down. He had hoped that he wasnt just going crazy.
But to much had happened. There was no going back.
He connected the second bike to the cart. Which was normally designed for two. Which between the two of them would be not to hard to pull.
"Did you forget anything? "He asked.
"No i even managed to buy some extra boxes of feminine products. So we should be set. But i dont know whcih is more amazing. You robbing the store or us going to the Pokemon world. " she laughed.
"Well to commemorate this moment ive printe off your facebook album and put it in a book hope its got good stuff. I also got this for you." daniel said as he handed her a silver watch.
"You got me a watch? Well i hope this isnt a proposal?" she snickered.
"Maybe maybe not, but before we go is there anything you want to do? Its getting close but we have a little time left. About 2hrs. Enough for a movie."
"What about forrest gump, or notebook?"
"Lifes like a box of chocolates, but often they are just dog turds." Daniel cracked
"Id rather watch something more uplifting. Something maybe a Disney flick or similar movies." Daniel commented
"Big Hero? Maybe Frozen?"
"Okay sounds good. Frozen it is. Who doesnt like a singalong?" he said as he pulled out the singalong edition from his collection. "Seriously, a guy with the singalong edition...we should do this more often.." Samantha commented with a smirk
"Well i dont think youll have an issue with that when we leave this place. Well practically be on honeymoon."
Daniel switched on the DVD and made a bowl of popcorn and got out a bottle of sparlking cider.
"Wow this really is turning into a date. You really know how to make a woman have a good time. I have a feeling wherever we go itll be tolerable. You are a good guy, im happy we met." she said as he passed her a glass.
"I believe a woman is only worth what your willing to do for her. Otherwise whats the point of being around a woman?" he voiced his view.
"Oh shutup Mr. Romantic. Lets watch this before we run out of time. "
They sat there. Both enjoying the time together. If it were any other moment, it would be just as warming.
Daniel and Samantha had been sending beams at eachother for a long time. Occasionally flirting, it was about time they got together.
They sang and shared the moment together. The last night on thier Earth.
They had things theyd miss, but they had freindship possible a future being more so. But time would tell. Stress often breaks those 'ships'.
The movie had finished. And so was the food. And the time was cutting down to the grind.
They had both changed thier status on facebook. Announcing thier fairwell to the world.
"Why werent we invited to the party?" said a familiar voice.
He rapidly turned around and saw Mesprit, Uxie, and Azelf floating in their natural...well supernaturalish pokemon forms.
They had yet to notice Samantha.
"Yeah i thought id spend my last night hear relaxed as much as i could."
"I have a favor to ask though." he said
"What is it? Said Azelf as she flew around his bike and studied it.
"I have someone i want to bring. I was hoping i could trade something in exchange to bring her.
"We told you...You are the only one..." Uxie was going off.
"But what if we brought candy for you?" he interrupted. You obviously like it. Itll be gone. So i made sure we brought a decent amount for you." he said as he motioned towards a trash bag full of various sweets he had brought from work after several trips.
"All for one person. She will be fine no issues. I hope it can be done."
"Are youd kidding? One extra person?"
" Fine, where is she?" Azelf settled after several moments
Just then Samantha poked her head up from where she had dozed off about an hour ago.
But her sleepy eyes were gone.
"Its them! Its really them!" she said excitedly not sure how to respond.
"Well we have what we need. Its a decent size. But if you can itd hell us alot. We thought of most matters so all should be fine." "Remember that time we tossed around that pair of groudon Azelf?" Mesprit asked
"I think that this is heavier." Azelf said sarcastically
"So no problem?"
"Oh no infact... Im thinking we should go now." Uxie commented.
The wall was suddenly rippling like a puddle but then it opened like a orange, peeling to the sides revealing a blue abyss.
"I cant believe it. This is all actually happening. " Samantha said giddily like a school girl.
They both got onto the bikes and peddled forward.
"Its a good idea you thought of this." she said to Daniel. "Remember im ready for anything."
Just then g forces swept the vehicle into the hole sending the into the pulsing unknown.
Just as the legendaries had promised they were now in a different world. And alone, but together.
They landed softly but the journey left them sprawled on the grassy slope of a hill.
He was the first the come to, so he went to inspecting the bicycles.
Both were fine.
Next he studied his surroundings wondering what his first pokemon encounter would be, but also looking for any sign of people.
From the hill he was standing on, he could see nothing but woods. Farther out to one side he saw a blue line from one side to the other.
A river or some body of water. Likely a town would be along there at some point. But itd be hard to bike on the beach.
Maybe thered be a road of some sort.
He turned to see Samantha sitting up. She was rubbing her head.
"Are we alive?" she asked.
"Yep." Dan confirmed as he kicked a rock, hurting his foot slightly. Just enough to prove it was real. "Were alive, but i have no idea where we are."
They left thier world little after midnight now it was around noon. The sun was high, and the air was warm.
It could be worse.
It was then he noticed at last some biuldings far in the horizon. Barely visible but still visable.
"But i see some sorta civilization. If we need to get information we can probably get it there. " he commented.
"It is far though. We may be able to reach it by tomorrow night. i wont lie. It is going to be tough to get there. " he continued.
"Well lets go. I havent seen any pokemon yet." Samantha said.
As if on que a howl pierced the moment. Followed by a second one.
The two stayed quiet not sure what to think.
"Id say that may be the first pokemon. It doesnt sound freindly."
"Probably a mightyena ot houndoom." said Samantha.
It made sense. "Both are supposed to be rough pokemon." Daniel commented
"well in that case we should get going. Is the bike okay?"
"Yeah." daniel said as he finally noticed a path going from the grassy gnoll into the woods. "Perfect, a path. Lets get going."
The both climbed on, using the momentum of the hill to get moving, rolling onto the dirt path he had noticed.
"I wonder is ash ketchum is real?" she commented.
"Probably not. If he is, itd be kinda creepy." he said.
He reached into his pocket pulling out a granola.
"Want it?" he asked
Her stomach gurgled a response, so she accepted.
He himself had a box of raisins. He hated raisins, but it was healthy.
So they navigated past trees, bushes, and boulders as they ate. ------------
"Hey want a break?" he asked a couple hours later.
"As much as id like a rest we should get out of these woods. Id feel safer then.
"I dont mean stop..." he said as he leaned back and pushed a lever.
Then as on command the rear wheels rotated automatedly.
"Wow. Why didnt we use that from the beginning?" she complained as she sipped a mouthful of water.
"It has to be charged first. Its a generator i installed last year. Itll propel us for about 10 miles if we keep on smooth ground like this, it isnt great but as long as we steer we should be fine. We peddle close to 30 miles id assume. If my estimate is right, we should be near the water by then."
"Wow. You cook, build, like disney movies, what dont you do that is awsome ."
"Oh thats right tonight i was supposed to be on letterman." he cracked. "I was supposed to be the guest host."
"Sure and im Oprah." Samantha cracked.
"Well you sure an upgrade from that last interview Oprah." he joked
They both laughed as the mechanic gears pushed them forward.
Just then they nearly lost control as they fharged through a swarm of Beautifly.
Instantly Daniel switched the autopilot off and they pulled over.
"Really? Really?" he said half doubting his eyes.
Samantha gasped in delight as she saw the first pokemon together.
"I never cared for beautifly, but this is amazing." Daniel said.
They stood there motionless as hundreds of beautifly crossed the path going from on side towards the other.
"They are probably migrating or something." Samantha said as she tried to touch one flying by."
Just then they saw a green figure standing up fighting off a pinkish spider.
It was an Ariados fighting a Scyther.
"We have to stop them. I think that Ariados may be trying to hurt that Scyther. " she said. "I dont like either but i dont know anyone that likes Ariados."
Daniel didnt wait for her to say anything though as he already liked Scyther in the old pokemon games. As his video game competition team leader was his lucky shiny Scizor.
He didnt hesitate as he ran towards the fight.
He jumped between the two fighting pokemon. As he did on his back he felt a slash from scyther and on his arm he was cut by one of Ariados's claws.
He gasped in pain. But he pushed the pokemon apart as much as he could trying to stop the fighting.
But as he did he heard a voice.
"Dude what are you doing?" an angery teenage boy said as he emerged from the woods behind ariados.
Daniel felt the sensation of wetness dripping down his back and cool air brush past and cut through the holes of his shirt.
It was a strange but aweful feeling.
"Were training. Youre interfering you dope. Now let us finish off that Scyther.
Daniel looked behind him and saw that the pokemon had been battling a tough fight. It was clearly on the verge of defeat. But he knew from appearance that this scyther wasnt going to make it much farther. It had hide its fear, but Daniel could see it behind its eyes.
"My scyther isnt for you to battle." Daniel said hoping that he could lie his way out of this and help the scyther. Itd be cool if itd be true. But still another lie of his personal collection.
Scyther looked in shock, not understanding why this stranger jumped to its protection.
"Your scyther? Well it was weak but there is no way you own this pokemon." the teenager said
"Of course its going to be weak. Especially after the last battle we had. We have been working our way towards town so we can find a pokecenter. "
"Last battle? What did it fight a superpowerful Magicarp? Screw you and your stupid lies. Finish it Ariados. Use Cross Poison"
The Ariados lunged ignoring Daniel.
"Scyther use Mirror Move followed by Brick Break." Daniel shouted.
The scyther hesitated, as Daniel expected. The poisonouz apendages landed and stunned Scyther.
"Use Mirror Move followed by Brick Break. Come on, you can beat him. " Daniel repeated.
The Ariados went in for a second slash but it failed as a similar slash sent Ariados tumbling.
With a raised blade Scyther sent Ariados flying into a tree trunk.
"Ariados! Get up now!" the teenager shouted.
Before he could collect himself scyther went in for a second Brick Break swing.
And with that the battle ended. The Ariados was unable to battle anymore.
The battle turned enough to finish and save the pride of the green bug pokemon Daniel had assisted.
The scyther feel on one knee as it was truely warn out.
"Well i guess it was your scyther..." the kid grumbled.
"Yeah i guess so." Daniel stated. "Can you at least direct us in the proper direction though. We hope to get to the Poke Center soon.
"Just keep going you cant miss it. Its about 3 miles down the path." the kid said after being taken down a few notches. The kid recalled his defeated pokemon in a premier ball, a completely white pokeball.
"Thankyou." Daniel said as he turned to walk back towards the bikes and Samantha.
She was clapping as she had witnessed her first real pokemon battle....well part of one.
"By the way we have not that far to go to get to the pokecenter. About 20 minutes at most with cruise on." he said.
"By the way the scyther is standing behind you." she said ignoring his statement.
To Daniels amazement the scyther was in fact behind him. Wounded but clearly interested in Daniel.
Daniel grabbed a bag of trail mix from his bag and opened it handing it to scyther who studied the foriegn foodstuffs.
The scyther then grabbed the bag and tried one of the M&M candies, followed by a peanut.
"I wonder if that is how a reeses peices was invented?" Samantha cracked.
Then the bag was soon empty as the pokemon scarfed it down. "Scyther we are going to go to the pokemon center. Did you want to come."
The pokemon looked Daniel up and down trying to find a pokeball.
"Sorry i dont have any pokeballs yet. But i assume you want to come?" he explained.
"Scy, Scy, Scyther." it said in its unique language.
"I assume thats a yes?" Samantha asked not sure what to make of the language of pokemon.
The Scyther reached out with its blade and shook Daniels hand.
"Well i see we have our first partner." Daniel remarked happily.
Daniel and Samantha rode with thier new partner on the automated machine, while Scyther ate a bag of Skittles.
They had at last arrived at the town that he had seen before from the hills.
Of course shortly before they arrived he changed his shirt and cleaned the wounds. The best he could do anyway.
The town was like any other in his own world. Except no dogs peeing everywhere. But plenty of pokemon were about.
A group of pidgey starred nervously at scyther. As was a meowth starred at the pidgey.
He saw a Raticate chewing on some trash in a pile and a tangela was sittinh on a fence minding its business.
Pokemon were everywhere. Samantha commented on the meowth.
"I wonder if team rocket is here. Imagine that blasting off all the time haha? Such losers." she stated
"Well you know the saying..lifes a bitch...then you die." he responded.
People watched as they switched to manual pedaling. The odd sight was probably not to wierd here. But still Daniel felt out of place.
The sunset was barely visible beyond the forest surrounding.
"Hey Scyther. How are you feeling?" Samantha asked
The pokemon responded, but sorely.
A large stone brick biulding reminding him of a old bank was to the left, along with a sign saying " Rustburo Pokemon Medical Center.
"I wonder if well need money?" Sam asked.
"As long as i can trade some goods, money wont be an issue. " Daniel stated pointing to his watch.
They pushed the cart and bike into the lobby which was large like any major hospital.
"Can you watch the bikes? Ill be back." he said
"Nah." she said sarcastically.
He rushed to the waiting room and found a nurse. "Mam? We need your help with my Scyther." he explained
"Will you please fill out some paperwork? Ill get the room ready for you." she said.
Her name tag said Nurse Joy She was a Nurse Joy. Full on with the reddish pink hair. A Chansey was behind her with a white hat on.
He grabbed the paper forms and looked at them.
Name and Trainer ID: Owners Name of the Pokemon in Subject: Name of Pokemon: Species of Pokemon Do You Have the Pokeball of the Subject: Allergies: Type of Injury:
Daniel filled all the blanks except the trainer ID.
Shortly after he did so Chansey returned with a stretcher for Scyther.
"Chansey, i have some questions for Nurse Joy. Can you tell her for me?" he asked.
The nurse returned shortly after Chansey went off with Scyther. "You had some issues with the form?" she asked
"Yes a few,honestly im not a registered trainer. Also this scyther i havent caught it yet. So its not officially mine. Is there an issue with that?"
"Well not really, however you will need to be registered. As for your pokemon. We recommend a nights worth of rest. Can you come back tomarrow around noon? Scyther should be okay then." she said.
"What about my registration? Wont i have to get a ID number?"
"Well take care of that when you return." Nurse Joy explained.
"Well okay..." He settled. "We are new to the area. Any recommendations. Also we have some goods to trade i was hoping we could do so soon."
"Well id recommend Noctowls Nest. Its a good but cheap hotel. Its four blocks from here north. Cant miss it. It has the Noctowl roosting on the sign. Across from the there is a good shop. Janice there also has pokeballs. So id recommend you get some while your there. " she explained the directions and Daniel smiled.
"Thankyou. Also if you have any information itd be helpful. We are rather new here...in Hoenn, and with pokemon." he said.
"Will do. See you tomarrow. Also tell Janice we sent you. She and i are good freinds."
"Will do. Thankyou. You have no idea how helpful this is."
Daniel returned to Samantha and saw she had pulled all of her belongings out of the cart.
"What are you doing? We are getting ready to leave. I have a place we can stay. "
"Im leaving. What do you think." She stated
"Why. I thought we were going to travel together." he exclaimed. He was confused.
"We did. But honestly i want to experience this by myself. I dont know what your plans are but now that we know where we are i want to head to Kanto. i want to see where it all started. And possibly participate in competitions. If they are like on the anime...ill love it." she exclaimed. "I honestly enjoyeed our time together but i want so much more."
Almost as if it was expected. Uxie, Mesprit, and Azelf returned.
"We told you that this would happen. Unfortunately Master and Mistress found out. So well have to remove her. I hope you understand Andrew." Mesprit said.
Daniel aka Andrew, had never really liked women simply because he had the worst luck. But honestly he knew he made an error. Even with the conflict in his heart, he knew that time and space were the divine forces and he couldnt fight it. This chick just wanted a free ride...
"As much as id rather try to settle this otherways. You say itd be best, i expected a little honesty. If she told me from the beginning id have likely not brought her. Not because of what she said, but because i dont like pokerfaces." he explained regretfully
Instantly he noticed with a crack that she was gone. Clothes, body, and even her bike.
"Sorry but its best to erase all proof of her here. Its as palkia and dialga ordained." Azelf said calmly and emotionless.
He hated letting the three pokemon just do that, but they were supposed to be wise as were the two pokemon of time and space. But he from the start tried to fight what they said was allowed. She was supposed to die anyway.
Time, fate, destiny, space.
It was stupid how wierd it was. But that must be why they needed Palkia and Dialga to moderate.
He also felt used. But he at least wouldnt be alone. He had a recovering Scyther in the medical room.
He felt he was going to be fine.
Before he could reply to Azelf the trio were gone yet again.
He was left there silent and alone with his junk.
He honestly, felt no emotion about it. Many would think he was cold. But he only knew here 2 weeks. She played pokemon but she was still mainly a stranger. He liked her, because he and she liked similar things but fate ordained that they wouldnt be together.
He popped out his whiskey and took a sip from the bottle. "Lifes a bitch, but so were you Samantha."
He returned the bottle to his stash and pedaled the bike out into the street, turning north towards the direction of the hotel.
He came about the 3rd block when he saw Janices Exchange and Pokemon Wares.
He pulled his bike contraption over and he chained the wheels to a light post infront of the glass store front.
He grabbed his bag of valuables and he walked into the shop. With a 'ding', the door shut. A simple old 'ding'. Like in those old family Ma N Pop shops.
He went up to the counter labelled "Good Exchange"
"Is your name Janice?" he asked a woman with blonde hair.
"Yes sir. Owner and proprietor of this shop. How may i help you?" she said in a giddy tone.
Yes i have some goods i wish to exchange. I was told by Nurse Joy and the PokeCenter to see you.
"Do you have your trainer card?" she asked.
"My ID? No i am going to grab that tomarrow after my pokemon recovers."
"I can exchange only up to 2000 in paper. But unless you struck it rich itll be no issue." she cracked.
He pulled out his bag of gemstones and placed it on the counter. "I have alot of valuables i just need to get enough cash to get by. I am new in the area so there is very much i have yet to know. So please bear with me. I plan to spend the night at the hotel across the street and i need at least one pokeball.
"Well financial status wont be an issue. Id recommend setting up a bank account though." she grabbed a dozen stones studying them one by one." these will be about 2000. Because the Nurse sent you ill do 3000.
A night over at Ole Noctowls is about 1000 a night. A standard pokeball goes for normally around 300. I currently only have Net, Repeat, Love, Heavy, and Premier balls. Unique but not to popular."
"What about those Premier balls?" he asked
"Oh those go for around 800 each. If you buy 3 ill sell them for 1800 in stones. " she explained.
As she said that a Sableye walked in, through the wall. It looked at the stones and smiled in a creepy way.
"Oh thats my partner. He keeps watch over the shop here, loves gemstones. " she explained.
"Ill go with 9 premier balls. Ill do the 3000 in currency. Also do you have a pokedex i could buy?"
"We do, but itll go for much more though. Itll be almost all your stones. " she explained. "Ill throw in a dozen potion kits, 6 full heals, and 3 more premier balls. Between the lot. Youll come even on the stones."
"Okay that sounds good, and useful and all, but there is another thing i was hoping for. You said Sableye is good at security? I was looking to find a place to keep my belongings. I dont know this city. But id feel better if my stuff was somewhere safe." Daniel explained.
"Oh kiddo, you have nothing to worry about. Itll be fine. I saw you had a contraption on wheels out there. Ill just have sableye put that in out store room. "
Daniel made the purchase. Inside he was giddy about this moment, yet he felt empty as though something this significant in his future would be shared with someone special.
He took out his laptop bag. He put the items in it, which fit perfectly. The pokedex fit well among the laptop and accessories.
He put a spare set of clothes in one pocket, and 3 pokeballs in the other, along with his first aid kid and pokemon health goods, and some food items. The rest he left in the cart. Each compartment locked tight. In his pocket he stored his cash in a titanium scannerproof wallet. A gift he got from his father several years ago, the christmas before his father passed.
He turned and left for the hotel to get a needed break and some much deserved rest. He needed a moment to at least empty his mind of worries.
The next morning he checked out of the hotel early. He wanted to see if he could find some other shops. Or even score a pokemon.
That morning he purchased a pancake platter, which he enjoyed. Warm real food was warming.
Of course by the time noon came around nothing particurally exciting occured. So he made his way over to the medical center.
Inside was held a few guests waiting on patients. Some were eating in the PokeCenter cafeteria.
Of course he saw Nurse Joy at the counter as she had been the evening before.
"Nurse Joy i am back, for my Scyther. How is it?" he said as soon as he caught her eyes.
"Oh your scyther made a healthy recovery. According to Chancey, your Scyther was up and moving like new around 8 in the morning. Of course im sure you are excited as well as happy. But before we continue i would like to help you get your papers settled so there are no further issues." she explained as
"Yes. I need to get my ID number, a trainer card, and i thibk something else. Am i right?" he asked.
"Well you will get a trainer card which holds your information. Also you will have authorization to use it for financial transactions as i see you are older that 18. "
"Here are the pokecenter we also serve as a financial union for all registered trainers who are legally of age. Trainers get authorization to carry pokemon young, but usually family provides support money wise. Im sure you are different as are most adults, who likely have some sort of personal monitary income."
"Well i do have a large amount of goods to sell. I purchased a pokedex from Janice last night. " he said as he showed her what he bought "Along with other gear. "
"Well we will use this pokeball here for your scyther. but i see you have a decent bag to start with. Do you plan on doing a gym run, and go towards the championship? Or something else?" she asked as she took out a camera.
She plugged the camera into a computer.
"Do you have an existing form of ID. Any, its usually easier just to copy that. As long as it is proper ID." she asked
He pulled out his old Maryland Drivers Liscense.
"Maryland. Where is that?" she asked
"Its a island about the size of dewford island. unfortunatly its not around anymore." he said.
"What do you mean?" she inquired.
"Everyone 1000 years or so it sinks under the ocean. It sank about a week ago. I dont know if anyone else escaped, but i was always a loner so ill be fine."
"Well im sorry to hear that. The story sound familiar. But this has all i need. Birthdate, age, full name. Obviously the address is useless. But no worries. And ill use th picture i took for your ID.
He watched as a metal card came out of a machine. It had his picture and everything. A sim card type object also, similar to those credit cards from several years ago.
"Your ID number....is RPC-219-2117. That is what your ID is from now on." she smiled.
"Thankyou so much. I cant believe it that this is actually happening. I get a pokemon, and now im a trainer." he exclaimed.
He recieved a spare and place on in his wallet, one in his bag in the first aid kit.
"Badge kits are unfortunatly only for youth, however you can still try for the Pokemon League if youd like. " she explained.
Chansey returned with the pokeball shortly after and handed it with scyther to him.
Daniel pressed the button and scyther came out in a blue beam. "How do you feel? Hope youre feeling much better."
Scyther did a flex as to show its strength.
"By the way sir, i have some basic stuff for you. A map, some brochures, and coupons. This is all the stuff i could gather for you. Id recommend if youd like to challenge the gym leaders, our very own Roxanne is a good place to start." she explained.
"Okay that sounds like a plan. But before we consider that more, I have some goals to finish first. But i am considering on maybe relaxing a while. I have alot i need to get off my mind. Also id like to get to know scyther better. Nothing more important than a bond between pokemon and trainer. "
"Okay makes sense. Do you plan on staying at Noctowls'?" Nurse joy asked.
"Actually i was hoping to find an apartment or somewhere to stay. Any recommendations?" Daniel inquired.
"No sadly. Maybe you could get information from Janice. I sadly only know of tourist type places. But im sure you can find one." she said
"Oh im sorry, i have to return to my other patient. If you need anything else just stop by." Nurse Joy said as she turned and went back with Chansey.
Daniel was walking away when he saw a kid run up. Probably 15 or 16 years old.
"Cool you have a Scyther. Ill battle you..." he said. Two of his freinds came up all excited and couldnt wait to see the battle.
"Scyther, are you up for another battle? Maybe we could use this to get practice together." Daniel asked his pokemon.
"Scy!" he replied. Obviously feeling up to a battle.
"Okay kid, where at? I doubt the nurse would want us messing up the place here."
Daniel followed the kids outside around to the back of the poke center. 4 soccer field sized battle arenas were set for trainers to battle. Probably for excercise after a recovering pokemon had spent an untold time length couped in a bed.
"Okay. Pick an arena." he said to the kid.
"By the way my name is Max, yours?" the kid said.
"Call me Daniel." he said as they took positions on a field. On side held a blue box in chalk, the other was red.
"Kyogre Blue, my fav." he said.
"Yes like the legendary pokemon of the seas. Water type but is also powerful with ice moves." daniel explained.
"Wow, neat." he said. "But no matter we will still win." Max boasted
"Ill start with Flareon. You?"
A fire type? Really. In games a scyther would struggle against any solo fire type. But it was his only pokemon.
"Okay, Scyther its gonna be tough but as long as you follow my lead we should be okay." daniel said hoping his lack of confidence wasnt showing.
Scyther probably had similar feeling as it hesitated but still entered the field.
Mirror move was out of the question. Flareon had flash flare, which restored damage from fire moves. Which was the majority of its moves. Brick break was pretty basic but if he could use the field to his advantage hed be okay.
"Scyther against my Flareon....well it wont be much of a challenge for me..." Max said confident in his victory.
"Bragging rights are for the winner, which is yet to be decided." daniel said.
"Well then lets speed it up and get this over." max stated boldly. "Fire blast, lets go!"
The flareon breathed a stream of fire aimed at Scyther who was waiting for the command to respond.
"Scyther go in the air and spin while using whirlwind!"
He hoped that he would not stumble upon a move that this pokemon didnt know. But wind would be best for this moment.
With the command scyther flew up and spun. The flames merely went around him. Like a plane in the air, all the flames just went by him.
But then the remaining flames got sucked into the whirlwind. The spinning mass of air got heated rapidly.
But amazing enough it worked towards the teams advantage.
"Now use iron head combined with your whirlwind. "
He doubted the pokemon knew iron head as it was a evolutionary move. As he was also correct.
But still scyther charged. Heat, combined with wind. And the air was damp. It merged into the perfect move.
Which slammed into the flareon sending it flying out of the arena.
It was a K/O
"How did you?...."
Daniel used the combination in a risk, doubtful that itd work. But itd work as any other tactic he could think of. It turned from what he commanded into a new move...
One that scyther never could learn normally. It was Hurricane a extremely powerful flying type move unique to bird pokemon.
Which the kid noticed also...
Now Max wasnt so confident.
The battle started off perfect. Even better than he expected.
The second was a breeze.
Max choose bellaroom, a grass/fighting type.
Hurricane would suffice, but so would a simple X-scizzor. Or two.
But as it went Daniel won the second match.
"I choose you Boldore" Max said as he tossed out his third pokeball.
A rock type. Perfect. This was the deciding match. Bug and flying were seriously weak against rock. Which was scythers type status.
He couldnt remember wether fighting was ideal against rock or ground. Big difference, enough to win or lose.
"Boldore use sandstorm followed by rock tomb.
Both moves hit with percision. Trapping and hurting scyther.
Now he was unable to move.
"End it with earthquake." Max said
Earthquake didnt effect flying types, but would collapse the rock prison around Scyther. Possibly ending it.
But as soon as max gave that command the battle was decided.
"Mirror move. Do it." Daniel shouted.
The ground trembled and shook violently as a jagged line beamed from one to another.
"Now Brick Break on the rocks."
Scyther smashed the rocks piled on top into gravel, giving it enough time to escape the last given move. Boldore wasnt so lucky as it was pummeled by the reflected move.
"Victory goes to Daniel." said one of the kids freinds who was judging. Then a round of applause erupted from the spectators. Of which he had not noticed before.
Scyther walked to Daniel with a smile. Obviously pleased with the leadership of its trainer.
He saw Nurse Joy who was also clapping. Then she returned to her duties in the Pokecenter.
"Scyther, as much as you are happy...that battle could have ended miserably. Dont thank me yet."
"That was impressive new comer, i couldnt pick out my favorite part But id like to ask you how you taught your scyther hurricane. Thats impossible." said a man in glasses and suit.
"Honestly it was luck." Daniel said honestly."i didnt think itd work, but the combination was perfect."
"How long have you and scyther been training? You were perfect together."
"Um probably a total of an hour time of training. And thats just in the actual battles. We had a battle yesterday too. But before that we didnt even know eachvother." daniel explained "sir may i ask your name?"
"Oh please pardon my manners. Its rare to find a trainer who doesnt already know me. The name is Anthony Birch. Most people just call me Professor Birch."
"Wait you are The Professor Birch. The pokemon professor of Littleroot?" Daniel couldnt believe it. He was meeting the Canon character. The actual professor.
"Well thats where my lab is yes. So you have hears of me?" he asked.
"Yes, sadly not much but yes."
"Well i am one of the head professors here in Hoenn. But in all my time i have never heard of a scyther using Hurricane. You remind me of someone i met several years ago..." the professor paused for a moment.
"You are a skilled trainer but if its true that you only met eachother yesterday, you are clearly made for eachother."
"Well i guess thats just anither page in my story. But it means so much coming from someone so important." Daniel said.
" I was wondering would you be interested in maybe helping me out. You have skills thatvmay help me on my quest to collect a proper record of the pokemon here in hoenn. "
Now he was being asked to do a pokedex...he forgot to collect info in his electronic pokedex, yet he had a printed one of his own.
He reached into his bag and pulled out his laminated selfmade pokedex.
"Its not fancy, but i hope thisll help your research." daniel said.
His pokedex may not be fancy but it had information related to evolution, traits, abilities, and even mega evolution. Also he had legendaries on the list. Pretty basic for a video game but pretty well put together.
The professor grabbed the "pokedex" and looked at it. "Are these pokemon you seen? Or just combinex notes?" he asked as he flipped through a few pages.
Then he noticed how detailed it all was.
"They are pokemon ive seen." daniel said. Which wasnt a complete lie. He had seen them in anime and video games.
"Almost 900 pokemon in this book. Amazing, its not a proper pokedex but its got information that superceeds it. I know one of the other professors has studied mega evolution, shell gladly look at this. Itd be best if there were photos though." he explained
"It would be, but how easy is it to get a photo of a raging groudon while its in its evolved form. " he retorted.
The professor flipped through the pokedex and saw how many unique and exotic pieces of information there were.
"Hey max, get over here. Take a look here." the professor said to the boy of whom he just beat.
"What Prof. Birch? Wanna rub this in my face and say that you tood me so?"
"No i want to to look at this. But yes, i will say i told you so. Think before you rush in." the professor nagged.
The two spent time talking and Daniel turned around bored. He wanted to begin looking for a apartment. He wanted to relax and maybe train and grow his team. But he felt time was beinh wasted here.
"So Kyogre Blue wasnt just a metaphor? You actually seen all these pokemon?" Max commented.
"Yep." Daniel said. "Well lets call it a day Scyther. Well also grab something to eat. "
He returned Scyther to the pokeball and was walking away when Professor Birch ran up behind him.
"Daniel you must have dinner with me. Tell us about your adventures. " he said excitedly.
"Unfortunately these pages are all im permitted to share. The rest i am not permitted to share." he responded
He lied, but he didnt want to gather any more attention or have to awnser any unneccsary questions. You could only lie so much before it became an web and collapsed on itself.
"Well in that case let me treat you just to dinner."
"No questions?" Daniel asked suspiciously.
"No questions." Birch confirmed.
Daniel followed the professor and Max who aparently had some relation to the professor.
As they walked together he began thinking.
The professor wasnt the only canon character. So was roxanne, and nurse joy. Possibly this max fellow too.
He had an idea. Trick max into mentioning either the Canon Norman or May.
"I was wondering, i was considering visiting Petalsburg. How tough is Norman there." he asked
"Hes decent, prefers fighting with normal types." Birch said. "Still has alot to learn."
"Shutup birch i wasnt asking you." daniel thought.
"I hear his daughter May is a pretty good trainer too. Is that true?" daniel asked.
"Oh yeah my sister is the best. Of course she only recently got back from Unova region doing competitions there." max said.
Crap....He admitted to both canon relations. So likely Ash Ketchum was real. Probably also team rocket.
"Well thanks for dinner. Im new in the region so i have yet to try anything new." he commented.
"Well Rustburo aint fancy but it hosts good resturants." Max explained.
He followed the two a small eatery that was busy.
"Heres the spot. They make good pizza." Max said.
"I prefer the pomeg fries. " said Birch
"Sis is probably waiting for us. but knowing her she is probably eating already."
He had met canons and was meeting yet another. May and max travelled with ash ketchum. Not only that. Probably alot happened that wasnt included in the tvshow.
Over at a circular both was a young woman with long brown hair with a red ribbon. Tshirt and low cut jeans. Red sneakers.
"Hey Max, Professor birch, and whos this guy?" she asked.
"This is a trainer named Daniel. He beat your brother in an impressive match. " the professor explained.
"Oh nice,to meet you Daniel. " she said as she smiled.
"Also this young man, made a significant contribution to my research. Possibly even more that significant." birch said as they sat down next to may.
It was then he noticed that a Blazikin was sitting next to May. A Beautifly and a Delicatty aswell.
The classic May pokemon. At least a few of them. "Why dont you let out your pokemon im sure they are hungery also." she said.
"Is it okay?" he asked Birch.
After a nod, he let scyther out of the pokeball.
After a few seconds Max asked. "What about the rest? Surely your team isnt just one pokemon."
"Yep." Daniel replied as he handed Scyther a handful of skittles which it happily accepted.
"What are those? Your pokemon clearly likes them." the professor asked.
"Just some candy from home. After a good battle sweets always are good." he commented.
"True." May said.
Daniel handed the bag to max, and each one of them tried a couple, including the pokemon.
"Mmm, wow. What are these called?" May asked
"Oh theyre just skittles." he said. "Nothing fancy." he explained
A waitress walked up. "Are you ready to order?"
