In the deepest reaches of my mind
@DEMo_Gorgon47: Thanks DEMo. Truthfully, I was trying to make it as realistic as possible so it would be more enjoyable, but I didn't think it would be really hard. From what you said, let's hope I survive this Nuzlocke then...
So anyways, I finished the first chapter of my fanfiction. Although I haven't done anything (besides picking my starter) yet, the first chapter mainly introduces everything. The next few chapters (I think) will come faster and I'll get more done.
So, without further ado, here's the first chapter:
Birth of a new hero...
Opening my eyes, I knew today would be special. As I peered around my familiar room, I noticed a blinking message light on my PC. Trudging towards it, I saw someone left me a message. Hmm...seems like Prof. Oak wants to see me. He attached a potion to it. But why? Shrugging, I withdrew the potion and headed downstairs. Mom said Prof. Oak was looking for me. I wonder what it could be? Heading out I told her, I opened the door where the sunlight greeted my eyes.
I decided to head to Gary's house, seeing if he knew where Prof. Oak was, since he IS his grandson. Daisy, Gary's sister, greeted me, and informed me that Gary was at Prof. Oak's lab. That must mean Prof. Oak was there as well, right? Nope. As Gary rudely told me that "Gramps" wasn't there, I disregarded him and instead stared at the Poke balls on the table. Telling me those were for him, I stared in annoyance at the smirking Gary and headed off.
Letting out a sigh, I took a walk around Pallet, hoping I would spot Prof. Oak somewhere. Oh, how I hate that arrogant Gary...I wish I had a Pokemon, I've always wanted one, and now at the age of 14, I was starting to think I'll never get one.
Oh well...walking back to my house, I heard a rustle in the grass. Prof. Oak? I drew closer and before setting a foot in the tall grass, I was twirled around and there I made eye contact with the Pokemon Professor.
"It's unsafe out there! Wild Pokemon live in the tall grass!" He nodded sternly. "Come with me." And with that, he led me back to his lab. "You need a Pokemon for your own protection." he stated.
Eyes widened, I realized what was to come. FINALLY. I hope this is what I think it is. I'll finally be able to traverse across Kanto with......CRASH!
"Hey Gramps! Why'd you call me here?!" Looking down at me, Gary laughed in contempt. "Watch where you're going next time, Furais."
Giving a scowl to Gary, I stood up, and awaited Prof. Oak's decision. "Ah Gary, hmm...That's right, I told you to come here. Let me think..." Looking into the distance,he spoke in a tone of longing and... remorse? "I used to be a Pokemon trainer once, but now at my age, I've kept these three with me. I would like you both to have one."
"Hmph", Gary smirked. "I don't need to be greedy like you. I'm mature! Go ahead and choose first, Furais!" Ignoring Gary's remark, I proceeded on with my decision and approached the first Pokemon.
A green-ish creature with a massive bulb on its back stared at me with gentle eyes. "Ah, that's Bulbasaur, a Grass-type Pokemon. He's very easy to raise." Giving me a smile, he looked at me with calm eyes. Returning the smile, I took him into consideration, and headed to the next one. Gary, tapping his foot impatiently, told me to hurry up. I stuck my tongue out at him.
A blue turtle-like creature with a brown shell jumped up happily at the sight of me. "Oh, Squirtle, a Water-type Pokemon. He's one worth raising." He looked at me with twinkling eyes. We made eye contact and I patted him. Definitely going to be my starter.
Moving on to the last one, I was unaware of what was in store for me. A fiery lizard stood before me, its tail set ablaze and the flame burning a warm intensity. "That's Charmander. A Fire-type. I wouldn't recommend him to beginners, he's difficult to raise. You should raise him patiently." He stared at me defiantly, and I looked at him with disdain. Out of my choices. So it was either Bulbasaur or Squirtle. As I approached Bulbasaur, I reached my hand out to take him when...
"Oops. Sorry, I forgot to mention. I can't let you take Bulbasaur, he's my first caught Pokemon, you see." uttered Prof. Oak.
Nodding in apology, I turned to Squirtle. I guess he's my starter then. Maybe Gary will pick Charmander. Reaching out a hand again, I was knocked over, and when I looked up, I saw Gary with Squirtle in his arms. Way to be mature, Gary... which leaves me with only one option left. Charmander.
Approaching Charmander again, he looked at me with caution. "I don't like you either, you know." And as I reached out to grab him, he scratched me. Covering my face, I looked at him hatefully.
Prof. Oak sighed, "I'm sorry, he does that to everyone. You can see why he's hard to raise?" I nodded in agreement. "But he's the only one left so..." Eyeing Gary, I saw him sticking his tongue out at me with Squirtle in his hands.
Gary... how I hate you. Looking at Charmander again, I took in a deep breath and held him up away from me. Struggling, he tried to escape, but to no avail. Groaning, I realized. My starter was Charmander. Quite an energetic Pokemon he was, I decided to call him Caim. A careful one, he is, for obvious reasons...
Gary approached me, "My Pokemon looks WAY tougher than yours. How about we have a battle to find out?" Eager to participate in my first battle, I accepted. Except I forgot. Caim hates me. Not obeying me at all, he totally ignored Squirtle. That is, until Squirtle tackled him. Letting out a growl, Caim listened to me, finally. After scratching Squirtle, Squirtle whipped his tail back and forth, lowering Caim's guard. From then on, it was scratch then tackle between the two, until Caim claimed victory.
"What? Unbelievable! I PICKED THE WRONG POKEMON!" cried Gary in rage. Recollecting himself, Gary smirked. "Whatever, I'll train to get him stronger. Furais! Gramps! Smell ya later." and off he went.
Prof. Oak shook his head. "That Gary, so reckless...I was going to ask him a favor but he left so soon... Do you mind going to the next town for me, Furais? I have a package that was delivered to me and I need you to go fetch it." Nodding my head, I took the first step into what was to come.
Caim the Charmander (Male) Lv. 5
P.S. - Question, if it's okay to ask also: How do you put text in the spoiler box? By that I mean replace the ... right next to the show button in the box.
