I have never done a fanfic before(or posted a thread, for the matter), and I probably made some mistakes. So please tell me if I have! Thank you for reading, I really appreciate it!
The world of Pokémon is vast, where Pokémon and humans alike live together in peace and harmony. The Pokémon world is divided into several large chunks of land, formerly known as regions. One such region is called the Sinnoh region. In this region, there is a small town by the name of Twinleaf, a town that is known by few and perhaps inhabited by even less. In the southeastern part of town lies a modern sized family home, accompanied by the glorious view of a tender, well-kept garden in the backyard, and the crisp blades of fresh cut grass. The atmosphere of this house is so calm and relaxing-
"Moooooom!!! Where's my skirt?! I can't find it!" A girl hurriedly ran down the stairs in a worried state.
"Dawn, I just threw that out. I-" a woman, bearing much resemblance in appearance to the young girl, replied from the nearby kitchen, before she was rudely interrupted, of course.
"How could you throw out my skirt!?" The girl, Dawn, screamed out.
"Please don't interrupt me again when I'm speaking, dear. I was just going to tell you that my old colleague and best friend, Tara, sent some clothes for you in the mail." Dawn's mother, Johanna, picked up a box that was resting on the kitchen table and handed it promptly to Dawn.
"Thanks, mom." Dawn replied. Johanna directed her attention at the starly decorated clock mounted against the wall.
"It's already, 2:15, dear, are you sure you can make it by 3?" Johanna pointed out.
"No need to worry!" Dawn sang as she winked and hummed a sweet song as she skipped up the stairs, skipping steps of course.
"And that's when I worry the most," Johanna sighed. THUMP!
"Dawn, dear, what was that?" Johanna called.
"Oh, I just slipped on one of the steps. No need to worry!" Dawn called out. The mother sighed. Dawn carried the box into her room and locked the door. She slipped off her comfortable cotton pink footie pajamas that were decorated with two yellow stripes on the right side. She then tore open the box vigorously, because she was anxious to see what was inside. She peered inside and picked out a pair of blue denim "short shorts." Dawn decided to put those on first, and she stepped into them. But the pair of shorts were horribly tight, and she had to struggle to put them on. Dawn began hopping around the room like a clumsy clown on a pogo stick, trying to pull them up. After a good while, the shorts were pulled up, and as she buttoned up her shorts, Dawn uttered a sigh of relief.
Dawn reached into the box and pulled out a white t-shirt and a slim black jacket that did not button up. Thankfully, they were not nearly as difficult to put on as the shorts. Dawn put on a black pair of socks and her new brown boots, laced with pink shoelaces. She then sat in front of her pink vanity dresser and mirror, trying to decide what hairstyle she should put her natural blue-colored hair in. After much thought, she decided on her usual style of two bangs in front with the rest pulled towards the back. She then grabbed a cap out of the box, which was white with the image of a pink poke ball and with a pink brim as well, and put it on. She smiled at her reflection before getting up.
"Perfect," she complemented herself, as she grabbed the last item out of the box, a cute pink purse, and hurled it over her right shoulder. Dawn grabbed her Poketch off her dresser and ran downstairs.
"How much time do I have left?" Dawn asked her mother as she fastened the Pokémon watch upon her wrist.
"Just twenty minutes until the boat leaves. You better hurry on to Sandgem Town!"
"Okay mom, I love you then," Dawn said as she embraced her mom.
"And I love you too." Dawn broke the embrace and sped out the front door and hopped onto her pink bike.
"Bye, Mooooom!" Dawn yelled as she began to pedal.
"Goodbye, Dawn. I'll miss you." Johanna whispered too herself as her daughter pedaled off into the distance.

In a place quite far away from Sinnoh, the Kanto region, lies the beautiful city of Cerulean. This gorgeous city harbors one of the best-known water type Pokémon Gyms in the world, the Cerulean Gym. Inside the gym, a red haired girl was cleaning the surface of the tanks that the water Pokémon lived in.
"Horseeeea" A small blue seahorse, named Horsea, greeted Misty with a warm smile.
"How do you like it, Horsea? I'm almost done."
"Horsea!" The Pokémon nodded its head yes. Misty giggled at her Horsea's cuteness. She was just about to wrap up her cleaning when she heard someone call out.
"Excuse me, is this perhaps the esteemed City Gym of Cerulean?" The voice asked.
"It sure is! Come on in!" Misty chimed. The figure moved into view. Misty could now make out a long blue dress, indicating that her visitor was a female. She wore her light brown hair out with a bright golden crown situated above her head. The girl had a togepi nestled in her arms. When Misty noticed it, that's when she made the connection.
"Princess Sara?!" Misty exclaimed.
"Well it's actually Queen Sara now. I was appointed queen a while ago." Sara giggled.
"Oh wow, congratulations! Soo... What brings you here?" Misty questioned.
"I came to bestow a present unto you, Misty." Sara stated.
"Really? You brought me a present? Thanks! Can I see it? Please?" Misty eagerly asked.
"Why, of course. Come here, darling!" Sara gestured her hand for someone to approach her. A white colored Pokémon with three spikes on its head and angelic like wings flew over to the girls. Misty's eyes sparkled with happiness.
"Togetic, is that really you?!" Misty dashed off into Togetic's direction. The Pokémon chirped a heartfelt "Togetic!" and flew into Misty's arms fir a heartwarming embrace.
"Togetic, I missed you." Misty whispered.
"Toge-Togetic." Tears had started flowing from the pair's faces. Tears of joy. Sara remained silent and watched, not wanting to ruin such a wonderful scene. After a few minutes, the two parted, and Misty began to speak.
“Thank you so much, Sara. I can’t even thank you enough.”
“Its quite all right,” Sara reassured, “Now that my togepi back home has evolved, and I am queen, there’s no more need for your togetic to stay at Mirage Kingdom. There’s something else I’d like to convey on to you, as well.”
“Really, what is it?” Misty questioned.
“I was watching a television program last week, and a commercial came on. It was pertaining to the Aqua Pokémon Contests being held in the far away Unova region.”
Misty had a puzzled look on her face. “Aqua Pokémon Contest? What is that?”
Sara was delighted to answer Misty’s question. “An aqua Pokémon contest is basically a… um… contest,” Sara giggled, “In which Pokémon trainers skilled with the essence of water show off their Pokémon in an aquatic field.”
“That sounds awesome! What do you think, Togetic?” Togetic nodded its head yes. At that moment, a knight dressed in armor decorated like a togepi’s egg shell appeared.
“Your highness, I am sorry to interrupt, but we must be getting back to the kingdom now. You need to deliver your speech at the festival very soon.”
Sara gasped. “Oh, no! How could I have forgotten? Misty it was nice seeing you once again. Good luck to you on your journey!” The princess turned and followed the knight out the door. Misty waved and said goodbye to Sara. When she left, Misty’s eyes drooped as she just made a horrible realization.
“I’m a gym leader now! I just can’t leave to go on a journey!” Misty said in a saddened tone. A voice arose from the shadows, scaring poor Misty.
“Never fear, your guardian angels are here!” It didn’t take long for Misty to figure out who it was.
“Daisy, don’t scare me like that!” Misty yelled. The strange voice from the shadows was Daisy, Misty’s older sister, who just happened to overhear the conversation between Sara and Misty. But she was not alone. The other older siblings of the Waterflower family, Lily and Violet, had both accompanied Daisy.
“We couldn’t help but overhear your conversation, Misty.” Daisy said.
“And we would love to run the gym while you’re gone!” Violet added.
“Really,well then I better get going then!” Misty turned around to exit the gym.
“Hold it!” Lily grabbed Misty’s ponytail. “If you think that we’re going to let you perform in a contest on live Television looking like that, you’ve got to be joking.” Misty looked at herself. She hated to admit it, but it was true. Her attire of shorts, tennis shoes, and boyish ponytail wasn’t exactly the most girly.
“Yeah, you need a complete makeover! That tomboyish look is completely played out!” Daisy, chimed in, following Lilly and an unwilling Misty into the dresser room. Togetic followed the girls inside, but Violet closed the door shut from the outside.
“No boys are allowed in the dressing room, silly! How about you do me a favor?” Togetic gave a “Toge,” and Violet told him what to do. “Go in my room and grab a red bag in my closet, I’ve been saving it for Misty.” Togetic flew off into Violet’s room. Meanwhile, in the dressing room, chaos was stirring.
“What! I’m not wearing this!!!” There was shuffling and the shatter of a vase.
“Like, just put it on!”
“Stop it now!”
“No! We’re almost done! Pin her down!"
“I totally got it! Let’s go show Violet, like now!” The two older girls bust through the door.
“And now presenting, Misty!” Togetic had just arrived with the red bag and handed it to Violet. He looked in awe at his trainer. Misty was a sight to behold. Her hair was down; fashioned in the same way it was when she used to perform as the beautiful mermaid in Cerulean’s water shows. She wore a silky white Tank top with an imprint of the beautiful Cascade badge on the top right side. She had on a pair of “slightly short” yellow shorts and she wore brown boots with fur around the top.
“This just isn’t me, guys. I can’t wear this.”
“It’s okay Misty. The only thing those new clothes do is make you look super cute. Deep down, you’re always Misty, right?” Violet stated.
“…I guess your right. Yeah! This is great!" Misty grabbed Togetic’s hands and spun around.
“Oh yeah,” Violet said, “I almost forgot, the finishing touch!” Violet handed Misty a red bag with a shiny gyarados drawn on it. “Its got a few of those things Pokémon trainers carry around with them and a ticket for the Cerulean Cape Airport plane to Unova.”
“All this for me!? Awww, thanks, you guys!”
“It’s nothing,” her older sisters replied as they embraced Misty in a hug. Then they broke apart, exchanged goodbyes, and parted ways. Once at the airport, Misty stopped.
“Togetic, ya’know there’s something I always wanted to do, and now I have the chance.
“Togetic?” The small white Pokémon cocked its head in puzzlement. Misty reached in her backpack and pulled out a red pokeball.
“Togetic, return!” Misty chanted as she held up the pokeball to Togetic, and a red light enveloped the Pokémon and sealed it comfortably inside the ball. Misty smiled at the Pokeball and placed it into her bag.
“Well, I’m off to Unova.”
