Chapter 1: Memories
The soft breeze of spring blew throughout the Sevvi Island Archipelago, making the weather of the region comfortable for both its inhabitants and the Pokemon that live in it.
“Come on, we gotta try to do this right!” on Kin Island of the Sevvi islands two boys made their way through the forest, causing the Pokemon that were resting quietly to fly away in fear an confusion at the intruders sudden appearance. “That idiot Alfred thinks that he can get a pass on me, I’ll show him by catching a Pokemon of my own!” a boy screamed confidently, his long unkempt black hair waving around as he ran. He seemed to be 14 years old; though he was short for someone of that age.
“Eddy wait for me…you’re going too fast.” A younger boy whined from behind him, his legs wavering in a failed attempt to speed up even more. “I can’t keep going,” he panted and fell to his knees. He had short brown colored hair that rested above his sky blue colored eyes.
“Gale you’re twelve years old,” the older boy argued with a small frown. “You’re supposed to be more energetic, how will you ever become a Trainer like that?” He shook his head in disappointment and turned around.
“Running doesn’t have anything to do with training,” Gale whined back before he stood up from the ground. “Pokemon are the ones that do everything.”
“Keep believing that,” Eddy said with a playful smirk. “I’ll see what you say after you become one and see you’re wrong. He looked at the forest once more and smiled at the sight of a large wooden bridge a few meters away. “There it is, Bond Bridge.”
“Why can’t you just go to Floe Island and get a Pokemon there?” Gale asked curiously; he was walking next to Eddy once more, finally able to catch up with him.
“Because, those are Pokemon with no battling experience.” Eddy shook his head in response. “If I catch one from the forest then it’ll have battle experience and I can actually accomplish something.”
“There’s not much you can find in Berry Forest though,” Gale argued.
“That’s where you’re wrong.” Eddy turned to face Gale once more and proceeded to take out a thorn up piece of paper. Once Gale was able to look get a clear look at the piece of paper he noticed that it was actually a ripped up newspaper article. “The wheather around the world has been changing lately, because of that multiple Pokemon have migrated from other islands, then there are Pokemon that get abandoned or hitch rides in the boats.”
“So you think you’ll find something useful in Berry Forest because of that?”
“Well like I always say, you gotta be positive.” Eddy grinned confidently once more as he raised his thumb at Gale. “I’ll become the strongest trainer that’s ever been known after all.”
“That seems like an impossible dream don’t you think.” Gale deadpanned.
“You don’t have to believe me if you don’t want to, just wait and see.” That was all Eddy said before he began to cross through Bond Bridge. Gale didn’t know why Eddy was so determined on catching a wild one, maybe it was just jealousy because of their cousin Alfred obtaining his own Pokemon but that’s still something he couldn’t understand. “Maybe I can get one for you too, you should start practicing for when you set out yourself.”
“As long as we’re not in danger later.”
“I’m your cousin you should believe in me more,” Eddy smirked.
The two cousins proceeded to make their way through the dark Berry Forest, sometimes stopping to search for Pokemon that they could catch. Unfortunately, nothing was good for Eddy as he would usually pass off any Pokemon he didn’t want or didn’t think was good enough for him. “This sucks.” He groaned in annoyance as he passed through the trees. “Are there no fire types here or something.”
“Why a fire type specifically anyway?” Gale asked, his eyes looking around the forest in worry. “This isn’t Mt. Ember.”
“I don’t give a damn I want a fire type,” Eddy groaned in annoyance. Gale jumped back once he saw him throw a kick at one of the trees in frustration. “Stupid tree of crap.”
“Exeggcute!” The two young men raised their heads in shock, only to come in contact with a set of five pink colored eggs, they all seemed to be stuck together with each other; they also seemed to all be glaring down at them.
“That is not good,” Eddy shook his head before turning around and patting Gale’s back calmly. “Run for your life!” he screamed as he ran off ahead of Gale.
“Wait for me!” Gale yelled back and began to chase after his cousin.
“Why are they chasing us!” Eddy yelled in fear.
“Maybe it’s because you kicked their house or something!” Gale stated, his eyes opening wide when he realized that the Exeggcute were closing in on them.
“I didn’t mean to!”
“I don’t think they care either way!”
Eddy increased the speed of his running once more as he looked back at the egg Pokemon. He needed to find a way to get away from the forest, but he couldn’t leave Gale behind either. Once he stared at his younger cousin once more his expression of fear was replaced by one of determination; he couldn’t let Gale get hurt, he had been the one that dragged him into the forest anyway.
“You keep running you hear,” Eddy instructed before finally coming into a halt. “I’ll distract him while you run away.”
“No buts!” Eddy commanded. He turned around so that he could face the eggs once more. “I’m the one that dragged you into this. We’re cousins, no, brothers and as my little brother I can’t let you get hurt like this.”
“But you have no Pokemon to fight with.” Gale gasped, he couldn’t believe why Eddy would want to fight against the Exeggcute on his own, even if it was to protect him it was still risky.
“That doesn’t matter.” Eddy smiled and retrieved a round red and white object from inside of his pocket. “I brought this Poke Ball so that I could catch a Pokemon for me, now this might not be the one I was thinking of but if it’s for you then I’m willing to do anything.”
Gale didn’t move or even flinched. He didn’t know what to say or do as he saw Eddy approach the eggs slowly. The only thing he felt was weakness, that his cousin had to risk his life for him, what made it worse was the fact that he wasn’t even doing the only thing he had wished for, but he couldn’t just run and leave him behind. “I said leave damn it!” Eddy screamed.
That was all he needed before he sped off from Eddy, his head looking ahead as he ran with everything he had. “I’m sorry Eddy,” he sobbed.
“Why are you crying?” Gale raised his head as he ran past a young man around Eddy’s age. He stopped himself suddenly, causing his body to arch back before finally coming to a halt. “He got in trouble didn’t he?”
Gale stared at the older boy in thought. He had short, almost shaven brown colored hair and was wearing a short sleeved white shirt along with a pair of beige shorts; he also had a pair of round glasses over his eyes. “Alfred!” Gale beamed happily. “I’m glad you’re here, you have to help Eddy he’s in danger and I…”
“Don’t worry, I’ll take care of it,” Alfred nodded his head reassuringly and began walking. Gale stared at his back for a moment, noticing that he was carrying a bag on his back. “I brought something for him.”
“Damn rotten eggs!” Eddy screamed as he jumped to the side, his eyes gazing at the small egg that was now falling on the floor. Eddy rolled on the ground quickly as the egg went off in a blast of fire, sending him flying away and crashing onto a tree. “Damn it, I can’t even aim the damn ball right.”
“Cute!” the Exeggcute chimed. They all opened their mouths slowly and started firing a barrage of energy coated seeds straight towards the young teenager.
Eddy threw his arms forward, the feeling of fast seeds colliding against him was starting to climb over his body. He stepped back slowly against the tree as he felt the bullets puncture and bounce against his skin and body. “Damn it, how can I get out of this one.”
“Stupid rotten eggs!” Eddy whipped his arm forward desperately. What the Exeggcute didn’t notice was that the pokeball had been thrown along and was now flying towards them.
Unfortunately, before the ball could hit its respective target the egg Pokemon moved out of the landing zone and were able to avoid the ball. “Well I’m screwed now.”
At that moment a large blast of wind and energy washed over Eddy and Exeggcute, causing the egg Pokemon to be thrown aside in one swift moment and for Eddy to gasp and turn around to face his savior. “Oh…it’s you,” Eddy frowned with disdain as he stood up. “I was just stretching you know.”
“When are you going to keep going with this silly argument,” Alfred sighed as he walked alongside with his Ralts, a small Pokemon clad in all white, with a green helmet shaped head and a red colored horn on the top. “Just because I got my Pokemon first doesn’t mean we have to argue over who’s better.”
“Shut up you traitor,” Eddy frowned and turned to the Exeggcute, who were now up and about once more. “If only I had my own Pokemon.”
“You do.” Eddy turned around to Alfred. A smile crept along his face as he saw the Poke Ball that he was holding. “Aunt Mary told me that you came here with Gale, this Pokemon came from Floe Island today so I figured you’d want it.” Alfred smirked as he handed the pokeball to Eddy. “It’s a fire type.”
“We got badass over here!” Eddy announced, his finger pointing at Alfred. He then smiled at the Exeggcute, though it was more of a sheepish and mischievous smile. “Now…I think I’m in the mood for some fried eggs.”
He let the ball fall down onto the floor before seeing it erupt in a large ball of light. The ball began to waver and change its shape slowly. Once it was over a small dog-like Pokemon stood in front of Eddy. It had orange colored fur and black stripes that went around its body, it also had a small cream colored mane along with a similarly colored crest and tail. The Pokemon beamed with confidence, almost as if it knew that the opponent was easy to beat. “A Growlithe, now this is what I’m talking about.”
“Cute!” Exeggcute growled before firing another barrage of Bullet Seeds.
“You seem young,” Eddy pointed out towards the Growlithe; who barked in return. “All right then I’ll call you Llamarada or Llama for short. You might be young but you should know this one.”
Once the seeds got closer to them a smirked crept along Eddy’s face. “Ember!”
With that one order the Growlithe proceeded to jump into action. It threw its head forward and fired a barrage of orange colored darts straight at the seeds. While originally the darts and the seeds canceled each other out the Ember was eventually able to pass through them and slammed against the grass type Pokemon, causing it to whine in pain as it was blasted away.
“See, I’m awesome without fail.”
The sun was beginning to go down now, creating a soothing and calm atmosphere around Kin Island. “Two Pokemon in one day,” Eddy smirked as he stared at the two Poke Balls in his hands. “That Exeggcute thought he was getting away but I showed him.”
“I wish I could’ve been there to see you guys,” Gale pouted in disappointment. “Now you both have Pokemon.”
“Actually Alfred has something else.” Eddy and Gale stared at Alfred urgently, causing for the eldest of the three cousins to sigh and grab his bag.
“This just got her from Floe Island, it came along with Growlithe.” What Alfred took out of the bag was none other than a round sky blue colored egg; it seemed to have some white spots around it, the spots in turn being shaped like clouds. “Ït’s not born yet but you’ll have a Pokemon once it is.”
“Awesome!” Gale exclaimed happily before he grabbed a hold of the Pokemon egg and put it close to his body. “I wonder what will come out.”
“I don’t know but it won’t be able to beat me and Growlithe.” Eddy chuckled, raising the pokeball into the sky and staring at it with sheer happiness. “I’ll probably practice and train for a year or two before setting off but I’ll surely become the strongest trainer of all.” He nodded his head, he really had no qualms about showing how determined he was. “I’ll be the very best.”
“Well at least you’re not whining about not having a Pokemon anymore,” Alfred said with a smirk. “But you’re dreaming if you think you can actually do that.”
“I’ll be supporting the two of you either way,” Gale beamed, his eyes shifting to both Eddy and Alfred. There was something that caught his attention though, the two seemed to be turning away from each other after mentioning their respective goals. Gale stared at the egg in thought, a lot of things happened on that day, so many that he couldn’t even get his head around them.
There was one thing he knew though, as long as his cousins, no, his “brothers” were around he would be able to do anything, he felt bad that he would have to stay behind though.
Eddy smiled at Gale. He could tell that the youngest cousin was feeling lonely and left out. “Don’t worry Gale, when I become the best I’ll come back here and we’ll have all kinds of great adventures together.” He nodded his head confidently and stared into the sun.
Soon he would be able to accomplish his dream, the dream he had had ever since he was young, ever since he saw his first battle. His eyes fell on the Poke Balls once more as he stood up and stared at the sunlight. “One day, when we’re all really great trainers we should meet up here again, then we can all have a battle and see who’s the strongest.”
“Well I don’t think I can do much,” Gale chuckled nervously.
“I accept that challenge,” Alfred nodded his head. “You shouldn’t laze around though, you’re not good with basic knowledge.”
“Shut up!” Eddy argued, though he was red from embarrassment. “I’ll show you damn it, I’ll become the best trainer there ever was!”
End of Chapter 1
Next Time: Chasing After A Dream
The basics for the characters personalities and way of acting are actually based on my own childhood memories xD basically cause my cousins and I were a lot like this and we used to get into trouble a lot. A week ago we were all reminiscing about our past and all the things that we had done and it just struck me.
