Pokemon Emerald: Chapter 1- I Got a Mudkip!
In a world much like are own, exists magical creatures, known as Pokemon. There are over 300 known species, and come in many shapes and sizes. Pokemon are used as pets, but they are also trained by Pokemon Trainers for the ultimate sport, Pokemon Battles! This story is about one boy’s journey in the magical world of Pokemon.
“I’m sorry, but I cannot let you be my assistant just yet.” Professor Birch, a world-renowned Pokemon Professor was explaining to a teenage girl.
“But I passed all of my tests with perfect scores!” yelled the brown haired girl. Professor Birch stroked his beard, and let out a sigh.
“Listen Sarah, you’re a smart girl and all but you just don’t have what it takes to be my assistant. Your too by the book, I need people with hands on experience!” Birch explained gently. Suddenly a small brown and white raccoon like creature popped out of a nearby bush and stared intently at the brown bag Birch was holding. The creature put on a sly grin.
“ZAGOON!” the creature yelled as it jumped out and grabbed the bag right from the man’s hands.
“A Zigzagoon!” Sarah said in shock as the raccoon Pokemon made a run for it.
“And it stole my bag! We have to get it!” Birch yelled as the two humans chased after the thieving Pokemon.
“Ahh! What a beautiful day!” said a teenage boy as he made his way through a grassy field. Suddenly he saw a quick brown streak fly out right in front of him from a bush. Professor Birch and Sarah jumped out as well, startling the boy.
“Oh, Ty, I didn’t see you there!” said the professor.
“Hi Professor Birch!” said Ty to the professor. He then noticed the girl next to him, “Oh, Sarah!” he said as he recognized the girl from school.
“Listen Ty, that Zigzagoon took my bag!” Birch said madly.
“This one?” asked Ty as he held up a bag. Birch looked shocked.
“How did you get that?” Birch asked surprised.
“I accidentally grabbed it when that Zigzagoon jumped by!” Ty smiled happily. The Zigzagoon realizing it’s stolen property had been stolen, let out a cry as it jumped ferociously in front of Ty.
“I think it wants to battle!” Sarah yelled.
“Ty, did you decide which Pokemon you wanted. There in my bag, I think you should battle Zigzagoon with it!” Birch suggested.
“Okay! I choose, Mudkip!” Ty said as he threw a Pokeball out from the bag. A tiny blue creature with a fin on its tail and head popped out.
“Mudkip!” it happily said.
“Good choice Ty!” Sarah yelled as Ty gave a thumbs-up.
“Okay, Mudkip! Tackle!” Ty yelled as Mudkip charged forward at Zigzagoon.
“Zag!” the raccoon Pokemon responded as it flew at Mudkip in a tackle attack.
“Alright! Mudkip is totally stronger!” Ty yelled excitedly. Zigzagoon smirked as it quickly jumped over Mudkip.
“Mud?” it said as it turned around. Zigzagoon quickly shot sand in its eyes.
“It just blinded Mudkip with sand!” Sarah yelled.
“Mudkip doesn’t need no stinkin’ eyes!” Birch said as he laughed at the joke he made.
“Lame.” Ty said embarrassingly, he then told Mudkip to use its sensor to sense Zigzagoon.
“Mudkip!” it yelled as it sensed the tiny raccoon Pokemon and shot a Water Gun at it, sending it flying into a rock.
“Pokeball, Go!” Ty said as he grabbed a Pokeball from Birch’s bag and threw it at the Pokemon. The ball jiggled as it stopped and a green light went off letting everyone know Zigzagoon had been caught.
“That was my Premier Ball!” Birch yelled at Ty. Ty was too busy celebrating with Mudkip to hear him.
“He is quite skilled Professor” Sarah said as Birch calmed down.
“Yes…that is why you should go with him!” Birch smiled.
“Huh?” Sarah asked the man.
“You see, traveling with him may show you that you can’t learn everything from a textbook! You need too see the world for yourself, not read about it! That is what I want from a assistant!” Birch said smiling.
“From now on, your Mateo!” Ty said to Mudkip as he hugged it with his arms as he spun around!
“Professor, I have made my decision…” Sarah said.
“And you will be Zorro!” Ty said as he held Zigzagoon’s Pokeball in hand!
“I’ll go with him!” Sarah said as she smiled.
It was a quiet night at the local Pokemon Center in Petalburg City. Ty was sitting at a table eating a hamburger as Zorro and Mateo sat on the ground gobbling some Pokefood.
“Tomorrow we leave for our adventure!” Ty said to the Pokemon. The two smiled and continued eating.
“Hey, Ty!” said Sarah as she entered the Pokemon Center.
“Oh, Sarah! How are you?” Ty asked nicely. Sarah reached in her pocket and grabbed a Pokeball. She tapped the button as a small yellow armadillo creature came out beside Mateo.
“Sandshrew!” the Sandshrew said happily to the Mudkip.
“Is that yours?” Ty asked amazed.
“Sure is! I have had Sandy since she was a little baby!” Sarah smiled as she gave some Pokefood to Sandy.
“So, what brings you here?” asked Ty. Sarah blushed a little.
“I want to know…can I come with you on your Pokemon Journey?” Sarah asked.
“Why?” Ty said seemingly careless.
“I want to learn all about Pokemon. And not just from textbooks. When I saw you battle today, I got so excited!” Sarah said excitedly.
“Yeah, why not?” Ty said plainly.
“What? Just yeah? You mean I can?” Sarah said amazed.
“Don’t get me wrong, I love Pokemon. But it would be totally cool to have someone I could talk to and actually understand them!” Ty said as he chuckled.
“Oh, well, I guess that makes sense!” Sarah said quietly.
“But now I’m pumped! Meet me tomorrow at the edge of town! This is gonna be so exciting!” Ty said as he jumped up and shouted.
“Yeah!” Sarah said in agreement as the Pokemon shouted as well.
The sun shined on the treetops as Sarah and Ty stood at the edge of town. Ty had a huge grin as he waved to all of his friends and family. Sarah waved as well, until she noticed a huge cloud of dust as something was charging towards them.
“It’s Professor Birch!” Sarah yelled as the man slid to a halt.
“Losing some weight by exercising?” Ty asked nicely.
“No! I just forgot to give you the Pokedex! This marvel of technology can tell you all you need to know about the Pokemon you see!” Birch said as he caught his breath and handed the boy the Pokedex.
“Awesome! Thank!” Ty said as he slipped it into his backpack. The two kids walked off towards the Petalburg woods as the fellow kids and adults waved them off.
“Good luck you two!” said Birch as he smiled and walked off too his lab. Thus starts the adventures of Sarah and Ty, in the amazing world of Pokemon!
