You're really lucky if you encountered so many shinies then XD
I could imagine a plot twist where it turns out our character is living in a game hacked by an Action Replay.
Obviously those won't be included. I like my shiny Roserade but is not that important to the plot; and a legendary pokemon shouldn't be capture, besides it is from Sinnoh.
A stone's throw
Hiro looked around the store; he was pretty excited with all the gadgets from the Devon Corporation, the largest commercial entity in the whole Hoenn region. It began as a small company several years ago, but they succeeded with all their useful products, many of them focused on Pokémon training, like specialized Pokeballs or the Poke navigator, as the one the twins has.
All of those products were on display, including new ones like the Devon scope, a gizmo that helped to identify invisible Pokémon, something that Hiro wanted but it will surely be useless for him. He sighed and continued walking with his Azulmarill. He went to the trainers section to find out what new products they released recently. He saw the new Pokenav model, it was pretty amazing, but again he knew having two would be pointless.
“What did the attendant say?” Jack asked to Sakura as she and Azu returned to them. Hiro stopped watching and turned.
“He said he could fix my Pokenav and it would be ready in 4 days.” she answered.
“That’s great, sis” Hiro said, her sister smiled and then stared right behind him.
“Look at that!” The girl exclaimed and hurried to a shelf with many pokeballs on it. There were 11 different balls, only 2 of them were unknown by the twins. Jack seemed a little surprised.
“Those are the special balls we bought at Oldale. I’ve been using some of them to capture Pokémon” The twin boy said to his friend.
“But those two… I’ve never seen them” she and her brother got a little closer; they noticed they had tags with a description of them. Sakura picked a pink pokeball with beige markings “Here says: Heal Ball – Cure Pokémon upon capture” Suddenly Sakura’s eyes brighten in excitement.
“You want to buy them right?” Hiro said and her sister handed to him a blue and yellow device. He read the explanation; it was called Quick Ball and was good for capture Pokémon when used early in a battle. Hiro laughed “I guess we could buy one each. Are you going to buy one Jack?”
“Sorry, I only use Apricorn Balls… besides they are cheaper” Jack smiled. The twins rolled their eyes while Azulmarill and Azu laughed. The whole party went to the register to pay the pokeballs. When they reached it, they saw many others Pokémon products, but there were only two that really caught Hiro and Sakura’s attention.
“Sakura, look!” The twin boy said as he pointed to a bunch of silver cases “Those are for Ribbons and Badges. Take one for you and one for me” Sakura rushed.
The twins paid and put the devices on their bag packs. They were pretty happy with the things they bought. Jack stared at them as they happily exited the Devon Corp building. Sakura and Hiro practically jumped of joy along with their Aqua Pokémon.
They stopped for a moment while the young boy took out his blue Pokenav and check the city map; then they headed east to the gym. As they continue they looked at all the tall structures, it was a pretty amazing sight especially for the twins as they’ve never been in an immense city. They grew used to the small houses and buildings at his home town, so they never imagined how big those edifices could be.
On their way, they passed the Pokémon school were the Contest would be held next week. Sakura could see herself already winning the competition. She looked at her green Marill and they both nodded.
Soon enough, the gym could be watched at the distant, it was a few blocks away from them. The boy and his Azumarill smiled and they started walking faster. Somehow, Jack looked a little serious. Hiro noticed the way his friend was watching them and his smile disappeared.
“What’s wrong Jack?” Hiro asked preoccupied.
“Nothing is just…” He sighed “You two seem pretty happy, despite having soon your Gym battle and Contest. I know you two have been training really hard with your Pokémon all week but don’t be so confident”
“C’mon Jack, don’t be such a spoilsport” The twin boy said and showed to him his Pokenav “Besides I’ve been researching about the Gym leader. Her name is Roxanne and she specializes in Rock-types. Did you hear me? Rock-types!! I got two Water Pokémon. I have some advantage!!” Hiro smiled.
“And I’ve been working on a perfect combo with Azu’s Watergun and Bubbles” Sakura said.
“I know all that, I’ve been watching you all these days but don’t forget you’ll be facing against other trainers and Pokémon” Jack said while they continue walking “And… sorry to brought that up Hiro, but you lost your last two battles”
“Jack” Sakura whispered.
“It’s allright. I know I’ve lost but is all in the past, I will win this challenge I can feel it!” Hiro said. They finally reached the gym, it was a huge building made with rocks. It looked pretty simple, but still was very impressive.
“Let’s go brother!” The girl yelled while she, Azu and Azulmarill ran to the door. Hiro tried to do the same but Jack held his hand.
“Please Hiro; promise me you’ll be careful” The older boy looked down “I don’t want you to get hurt like in the woods” the twin turned and looked at him.
“I… I promise” He let go Jack’s hand and they both walked to the door.
They entered the gym. Inside there was a battle arena with rocks. It was pretty obvious what type they specialized even if Hiro hadn’t checked his Pokenav. They walked and looked around but no one was there. They stared at each other trying to figure out where was the leader.
They saw a door on the left; from it a girl entered. She was pretty young and beautiful; she had taupe hair and red eyes. She was wearing a small blue dress with red stockings and what it seemed a bow of the same color on her hair. She smiled at the party and walked to the other side of the Arena.
Behind her a boy came in, he was holding a green and a red flag, it was pretty obvious he was going to be the referee. He walked to the left side and stayed there.
“Hello, my name is Hiroshi and I’m from Verdanturf Town. I’m here to challenge the Gym leader” The boy said as he and his Azulmarill took a steep.
“Hello, I am Roxanne, the Rustboro Gym Leader. I became a Gym Leader so that I may apply what I learned at the Pokémon Trainer's School in battle” She winked “Would you kindly demonstrate how you battle, and with which Pokémon?”
“Of course” Hiro said.
“It will be a three on three battle. If you defeat me you’ll get the Stone Badge” The leader said “Now let’s start!”
“Ok then…” He looked at Azulmarill and remembered his promise. Hiro took a Repeat ball and threw it into the air “Ralts go out!” the female Pokémon appeared.
“I thought he would use a Water Pokémon” Sakura said.
“I guess he wants to put on test his skills” Jack answered as they watched the battle start.
“A Ralts right? That’s a good choice” Roxanne took a pokeball and threw it “I choose you, Geodude!” a Pokémon appeared, it was a simple rock with arms and a face.
“Let’s find out more” the twin boy took out his pokedex.
“Geodude, the Rock Pokémon. Geodude has incredibly high defensive power, making it virtually resistant to any physical attacks.” Hiro returned his gadget to his pocket.
“Geodude, use Rock Throw!” The leader ordered. The rock Pokémon took boulders and threw them at the other creature.
“Teleport, now!” Hiro screamed. Ralts disappear just in time; the rocks violently hit the ground and broke in small pieces. The Feeling Pokémon appeared on the right side of the Arena.
“Awesome!” Sakura screamed and cheered her brother.
“Use confusion!” Hiro said. A blue aura surrounded the small green and white Pokémon. Geodude started shining as well. Suddenly it was thrown against a big stone. It hit pretty hard but the creature endured the attack.
“Geodude, Rock tomb!” Roxanne commanded. The Pokémon hit the ground and various boulders came out f the ground creating numerous obstacles between the two creatures. One of the rocks hit Ralts. She was thrown but she managed to recover in time and landed safely.
“It didn’t hurt Ralts so much” Sakura said.
“No, but all those boulders are on her way, that would slow down her attacks” Jack commented.
“Ralts, use confusion again!” Hiro said. The small creature attacked again.
“Defense curl and then Rollout!” Roxanne yelled. The Pokémon put its arms around its body. It was thrown away by Ralts attack but it bounced against the boulders and started to roll. It gained impulse and went towards her and hit her pretty hard.
“Ralts!” Hiro screamed. The small Pokémon was badly hurt. Meanwhile the other creature kept spinning.
“Hiro now has to be careful. Every time it hit it would be more powerful” Jack said. Geodude hurried once more against Ralts.
“Teleport!” The twin boy said the Pokémon disappeared and then reappeared behind the rock creature; it turned and went for her “Use Confuse Ray!” The boy yelled. Ralts eyes glowed red and an orb was released, it hit it and suddenly Geodude changed directions. It started to erratically move and crash against the boulders.
“Geodude!” The leader screamed as her Pokémon continued to hurt itself.
“Use confusion again!” Hiro ordered. Ralts used her psychic powers one more time and threw Geodude against the wall. It fainted.
“Geodude cannot continue. The winner is Ralts” The referee said. Roxanne returned the creature to its pokeball. She took another one and released her next Pokémon. Its body was hard, angular, bluish-colored rock and its most prominent feature was its bright red, triangular nose. It also had arms and legs, but don't appear to have any joints and had small, circular holes on the undersides. Its eyes were darken and appeared to be closed.
“Nossepass, you’re next!” She said and smiled.
“That’s one ugly Pokémon” Sakura said and her Azu laughed.
“I think is cute!” Jack as always said. He took out his pokedex to find out more about it.
“Nosepass, the Compass Pokémon. Nosepass has a nose that functions as an electromagnet and determines location by moving its nose about.” He returned his green gizmo to his pocket.
“Nosepass, use Thunder wave!” Roxanne ordered much to Hiro’s dismay.
“What?” Hiro seemed very confused. Static electricity came out from the compass creature and hit Ralts paralyzing her “Use teleport!” He said but the feeling Pokémon couldn’t move.
“Now use Rock throw!” The leader said. The big nosed being raised it arms and various rocks started floating; it then pointed at Hiro’s Ralts and the rocks were thrown at her. The small Pokémon fainted.
“Ralts is unable to continue, the winner is Nosepass” The referee announced. Hiro returned his Pokémon. He took a pokeball and send Mudkip out.
“Interesting choice!” Roxanne said “Nosepass, Rock throw!” The Pokémon summoned rocks from all over the arena.
“Quick, use dig!” Hiro commanded, the mudfish dug a hole and went inside. The leader knew that attack could do serious damage to her Pokémon so she stayed sharp.
“Be careful!” Roxanne suggested. Suddenly, Mudkip came out from below and threw Nosepass into the air.
“Watergun, now!” Hiro yelled. The blue creature attacked and the water made the rock creature hit the ceiling very hard. It then hit the floor raising dust from the ground.
“Rock throw!” the leader said but there was no response. The dirt settle and it was revealed the Pokémon has fainted “Nosepass!” she screamed.
“Nosepass cannot battle anymore, the winner is Mudkip” The referee said as the girl returned the creature to its pokeball. She took another one and released her last Pokémon. It was a giant chain of gray boulders, with a rocky spine on its head. It somehow resembled a snake.
“I choose Onix!” Roxanne said. Hiro was intimidated by its size. Sakura took his pokedex and pointed it at the creature.
“Onix, the Rock Snake Pokémon. It tunnels through the ground which shakes when it raises its thunderous roar. It can move the ground at fifty miles per hour.”
“Wow!” The girl said as she put her device back.
“Azuzu!” Hiro’s Azulmarill cheered Mudkip.
“You can do this!” The twin boy said to his Pokémon.
“Onix, use Iron Tail” The leader ordered. The rock snake’s tail started glowing silver. He swung it against the small blue creature.
“Mudkip, Dig!” Hiro screamed and the Pokémon went underground. Onix’s tail crashed against the floor. Roxanne paid extra attention, but it wasn’t enough. The water type creature attacked. Despite its different sizes the attack was very effective.
“Onix, constrict” The girl commanded. The big creature took Mudkip with its tail and started to crush it. The small Pokémon cried in pain.
“Use Watergun and escape underground” The boy said and the Pokémon obeyed. The water attack hurt the rock snake “Dig many holes!” Hiro added. Mudkip came out and then dug a hole and entered it again. The Onix tried to attack but it couldn’t. The mud fish continued to come out and returning underground several times. Soon the Arena was full with holes.
“What are you doing?” Roxanne asked.
“You’ll see!” The rookie trainer answered as he smiled “Use Water gun now!” From all the holes spouts of water came out, they hurt pretty bad the gigantic rock being. The Onix started stumbling. “Finish it with tackle!” Hiro ordered and his Pokémon came out and attacked. The other creature fell and fainted.
“Onix cannot continue. The winner is Mudkip!” The referee said “Hiroshi from Verdanturf is the winner!”
Hiro and his Azulmarill hurried and hugged Mudkip. Jack, Sakura and Azu ran towards them to celebrate as the leader returned her Onix and walked to them. Unexpectedly, the mud fish body started glowing. Both his trainer and Azumarill let it go. His body grew and it stood in two legs. When it stopped shinning it was shown that it evolved. Hiro immediately took his Pokedex to learn more about his new Pokémon.
“Marshtomp, the Mud Fish Pokémon. Marshtomp is the evolved form of Mudkip. It is able to move and swim more quickly through mud than through water.” He returned his gadget to his pocket.
“Congratulations! Not only you manage to defeat me, but your Pokémon also evolved, you’re a remarkable trainer” The leader said as she handed the golden badge at Hiro. It was shaped like a rectangle with two of its corners more emphasized then the others.
“Thanks!” He took the badge and smiled.
“Marsh, marsh” the Pokémon said.
“Congratulations Hiro, you were amazing!” the other boy said.
“Thank you Jack” Hiro said as he put his new badge on his new case. He returned Marshtomp to its pokeball.
The party said goodbye to Roxanne. They exited the Gym and headed to the Pokémon center to heal the creatures. They reached the building in no time. The twin boy handed his pokeball and his Azulmarill to the nurse.
He then called Professor Birch with the videophone to inform him on his new victory. Hiro also told him all about the others battles he lost and the Pokémon he caught.
The twins then called their mother and informed all of their adventures and how their Pokémon evolved, they also introduced Jack to her. They talked for several minutes before hanging out.
As they waited for the nurse, Hiro took out his Case and stared at his new badge. He silently thanked his Pokémon for their hard work, and his sister and friend for their support. With this victory he was one step closer to become a champion.

The battle was goo, what I didn't like was that Hiro won single handedly, I know he had been losing his battles recently but it kind of took away some of the excitement for me.
Also, Sakura bought a Heal Ball and a Ribbon Case at Devon Corp.
Awesome!! You Won Third place!! :)
I didn't felt like he won single handed, i mean, he used two Pokemon... XD
Well, I quite enjoyed the gym battle, since the tactics were quite good! I also felt that you did a great job with Jack's emotions--he really has grown as a character.
Oh, and the answer:
Azumaril: None, to my knowledge. However, maybe it doesn't travel in a Pokeball, but there still is one?
Marshtomp: poke ball
Ralts (shiny):Timer Ball
Oh, and one question. your pics show Hiro with a Metagross. So what happened to Duskull then?

Congratulations!! Your answer is correct. You got First Place!!
About Metagross, is a pokemon Hiro will eventually have, but that doesn't mean he will get rid of his Duskull, he will also caught many other like Sharpedo, etc. :)
I took a quick glance and wondering how did you get the gen 4 sprites with a gen 3 game storyline?
"The military don't start wars. Politicians start wars."
- William Westmoreland
"The soldier above all others prays for peace, for it is the soldier who must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war."
He made the pictures himself so he just added the sprites from Gen 4 there's nothing wrong with that.
Do you guys like the pics??
By the way, there's one question left!! :)
Lol, I was wondering why no one was responding.
Also, will any character get an Exploud?
Made by Blue Dragon!
Also, reason I asked was Exploud is one of my favorite Hoenn pokemon (thank GIROG for that). After Sceptile, Metagross, Flygon, Lucario....well, yeah, you get the idea.

Jack Hails from Ecruteak City in Johto.
Oh and an error was spotted. While it's evolutions are part ground, Mudkip is only water type.
I don't calculate stat values, and I don't care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are. I just play the game normally. If you agree copy & paste this in your sig.
ALL BOW BEFORE THE MIGHTY HYPNOTOAD!
