Here is my latest story. It features Falkner. I had changed some details from my planned idea, such as certain OC names.

DISCLAIMER: I do not own Pokemon, Falkner,or other canon characters. They are property of Nintendo. However, I do own some of the characters, such as Falkner's mother Pauline, Liron Beauregard, and the police squad. Walker (Falkner's father) is taken from the manga.
This story is rated K+ for violence and use of the word crap.
Part of this story is inspired by the manga, where Falkner is a part-time police officer.
I was inspired by something that happened quite a while ago - when I had a bad dream about being in a scary forest. At first it really creeped me out, but then I figured that I could write a fanfic based off of the thing. It will appear later in the story.
CHAPTER 1: THE POLICE STATION
One sunny day in Violet City, we focus on the stream that crossed in front of the Sprout Tower. The stream is flowing to the east, and then to the south.
Falkner, the Gym Leader of Violet City, was taking a break from his job as a Gym Leader and spending time outside with his friend Lyra. They are
"It's so beautiful out," said Falkner. "It's too nice to be cramped up in the Gym. I'm sure a lot of people would agree with me."
"I agree with you," said Lyra. "But it's still nice to battle."
"Yeah," said Falkner. "But I'll take a break from the battling."
"It's nice to just look at the stream," said Falkner, "and see it flow away. Considering how it empties out to the sea, it reminds me of sailing far away. You know, from Bissau to Palau, from Fiji to Tiree, from Peru to Cebu, from Bali to Cali..."
"You're funny," she said. "I like your sense of humor."
"I know," said Falkner.
"That cop movie you like is going to be on in about an hour," said Lyra, looking at her watch.
"I don't think I want to sit inside for that long," said Falkner. "Besides, I have the movie on DVD. But do you want to come over to my house?"
"Of course!" said Lyra.
Falkner and Lyra got up and made their way to Falkner's house. Eventually, they reached it. It was a one-story house with a purple roof. When the two arrived, Falkner's parents, Walker and Pauline Vogel, noticed them. Walker looked like an older version of his son, and he was even dressed similar to him. Pauline was a woman of average height, and she had blue hair down to her chest and blue eyes.
"Hello, dear," said Walker.
"Hello, Daddy," said Falkner.
"Nice to see you again, Mr. and Mrs. Vogel," said Lyra.
"I see you kids were having fun," said Pauline. "I thought that maybe you wanted some lunch."
"What did you make, Mom?" asked Falkner.
"I made you some chicken melts," said Pauline. She took out a tray of chicken melts - consisting of chicken and provolone cheese. Falkner took a sandwich. Lyra took one as well.
Falkner and Lyra went inside and ate their lunch.
"Your mom makes the best melts," said Lyra.
"Thank you," said Falkner.
Falkner looked at Walker, who was reading the newspaper.
"Anything interesting in the paper, Daddy?" asked Falkner.
"There's this sale on Ball Capsules," said Walker.
"That doesn't sound very interesting," said Falkner.
Walker continued to flip through.
"But I do have something interesting to tell you," said Walker. "You know about my part-time police job? You said that you were interested in helping out. So I was thinking of taking you down to the station later. They're recruiting young men and young women. In case you want to join..."
Falkner looked excited about that.
"I would love to, Daddy," said Falkner.
"Okay," said Walker. "Be ready to go at 5 PM."
"Do you want to come, Lyra?" asked Falkner.
"I can't," said Lyra. "I scheduled a rematch with Misty in Saffron City and I can't afford to miss it. Sorry!"
"What a pity," said Falkner. "Oh, well - I'll see you tomorrow!"
Later that day, Walker took Falkner to the Violet City Police Station. There were plenty of cops there, as expected. Also there were various young recruits for the Junior Division of the police force.
"I hope they're nice here," said Falkner.
"I'm sure they will be," said Walker. "They're nice to me. I'm sure they'll be nice to you too. After all, you're the city's Gym Leader."
Falkner was led into the room where the trainees were. There were about thirteen of them - eight boys and five girls. Most of them looked to be around Falkner's age. Falkner looked at the other people in the room. He saw a man who appeared to be their trainer. This man looked to be in his thirties, with black hair and brown eyes. He was wearing a police uniform.
"Hello," said the man. "I'm Officer Scott Yamaguchi. I will be training you kids."
"Hello, Officer Yamaguchi," said Falkner.
"Please," said Officer Yamaguchi. "Come this way."
"Go on, Falkner," said Walker.
Falkner approached Officer Yamaguchi.
"My name is Falkner Johann Vogel," said Falkner. "I am the city's Gym Leader."
"I know exactly who you are," said Officer Yamaguchi. "You're a nice kid."
"I am interested in helping out," said Falkner.
"That's great!" said Officer Yamaguchi. "It's always good to get help."
Suddenly, a boy who looked to be around Falkner's age stood up. This boy had light brown hair and brown eyes. He was wearing a soccer jersey and a pair of blue sweatpants. He had a big grin on his face.
"Well, well, well," he said, "isn't it the Gym Leader?"
"And who are you?" asked Falkner.
"I'm Liron Beauregard," said the brown-haired boy.
"I don't care," Falkner retorted.
"Well you better," said Liron. "My mother says that this job is going to make me famous throughout Violet City."
"Your mother?" asked Falkner, looking across the room. "Is she the woman with the He-Man haircut?"
A woman came walking up to them. She appeared to be in her early forties. She had blonde hair in a pageboy haircut and green eyes. She was wearing a white sports top and a pair of black bun huggers. She had a Pokewalker on her.
"Well, Falkner, baby," said the woman. "I see you have met my son. I am Ginger Beauregard, daughter of wealthy business executive Phillip Beauregard. We're a formidable family. Dad's been married six times. Tower Tycoon Palmer is my half-brother. I am also an accomplished fitness expert. I have made quite a few videos specializing in how to stay fit." Indeed, Ginger was a bit of a fitness addict.
"Thanks for the information," said Falkner.
"I don't think you have what it takes," said Liron.
"What?" asked Falkner.
"You're not cut out for this type of work," said Liron.
"I'm sure I am capable of doing it," said Falkner.
"You don't have a chance," said Liron. "These guys are sharks! They'll eat you up and spit you back out."
"Liron's right," said Ginger. "It is a tough job."
"Don't you have some jogging to attend to, fitness queen?" asked Falkner.
"You're right, Falkner!" said Ginger. "I have to go do my glutes workout!" She turned to Liron. "I'll see you later, Liron! Bye!" Ginger jogged out of the building.
Falkner thought that the Beauregards were nuts. Walker must have too.
"What a weird woman," said Walker. "Oh, well. The introduction should start soon."
