Hello everyone! So this is my first ever fan fic story, and I'm a little nervous about posting the first chapter, but I hope you all like it. It will be updated regularly and obviously tell me what you think, good or bad.
the absence of Jay's description in the story was done intentionally as I wanted to let the reader create Jay, have him be a response, creatively towards the story, but of course if you don't like doing this you could do what I do, which Ive always imagined him as Jimmy/Gold, I don't know why but hay. Feedback would be appreciated :) thank you for reading and enjoy! :))
Heres an image of the Henzo region map i made in paint hahaha omg:

Chapter 1 - The Beginning
Jay's eyes pierced open, his dark pupils edged sideways to see his alarm clock at 5:59. He patiently waited for the digits to change and as soon as the time hit 6:00 he leaped out of his warm toasty bed and got dressed straight away. He was that excited about receiving his starter pokemon that when he was running down the stairs he took a little tumble. After recovering from the fall he ran to the living room to see his mother.
"Morning, ma! Today's the day!"
Falora sat up from her maroon, silky couch that was situated in her self designed lounge and told Jay to come take a seat, she looked cautious.
"I wanted to tell you sooner, but your father told me not to." A worried expression began to appear on Jay's face.
"Professor Blossom has unfortunately run out of starter Pokemon..."
Jay's eyes began to boil up. "However!" quickly snapped Jay's mother. "There's no need to worry; your father has kindly sent you a Pokemon he previously caught. We both really hope you enjoy your Pokemon!"
Jay's mother handed Jay his first pokeball, his eyes grew big and bright, and with that he was ready for his adventure.
Jay threw his pokeball in the air, shouting the words "I choose you" and out came an Eevee, Jay was in awe, he didn't know whether to be happy or upset. There was a slight awkwardness as Eevee and Jay made eye contact. Deep black pupils engaged with Jay, the furry, milky brown fox staring at him.
Jays mother quickly noticed. "Jay... Don't you think that your Eevee is cute?"
However being truthfully honest Jay didn't want a 'cute' Pokemon, he wanted a fierce, strong Pokemon. In his mind Jay had been playing out scenarios such as battling with a flaming Charizard or a ruthless Empoleon. Jay then snapped back to reality and stormed out the door, Eevee followed. Whilst walking through Jays home town 'Windflower Town' he headed south to Windflower Forest, he began to mumble to himself.
"Who does she think she is... i deserve bett...the league..what to do."
Windflower Forest was beautiful, a tropical, delicate arrangement of flowers and trees, all of them dancing as the wind blew them left to right. The blazing heat that radiated from the the gigantic ball of gas that levitated in the sky slowly tingled Jay's tanned skin. Shimmers of light would slowly wicker, like a strobe light in Jay's face, on and off as he would move between trees and leafs. The smell of decomposed leaves and summer breeze swept Jay's nostrils, the odour was rewarding in the sense that it was calming.
Eevee laid a straight stare at Jay, trying hard to catch his attention. But Jay was too distracted of the matter at hand because of getting Eevee. As he was unintentionally walking towards a steel wall, his mumbling got worse and he banged the wall, and it clattered a metal sound.Jay looked up and realised it was the back of a Skarmory, Jay stood is shock whilst Eevee was pulling on Jays trousers. Jay noticed there was a dark figure sitting on top of Skarmory, the figure turned around. Jay saw that it was a woman, a skinny woman with rugged ash white hair and dark purple witch-like clothing, she had enough gold jewellery to blind a child and was clutching onto a silver rod with a violet orb located on the end.
"Skarmory... Razor wind my beauty." The woman softly commanded.
Jay then suddenly noticed she was carrying about four briefcases entitled 'windflower bank' but before Jay could say anything, Skarmory was twenty feet in the air attacking with a razor wind. Sharp gushes of wind began to form as Skarmory flapped its metal wings, ferociously, Skarmory roared.
"Ahhhh!" Jay panicked, and covered his face preparing for the worst, about 10 seconds had passed and Jay still didn't feel any different, he then opened his eyes sluggishly to see a warn out and brutally hurt Eevee lying in front of him. Scratches covered Eevee's tender fur whist she laid on her back pleading for help.
Jay stood silently, his face in distraught. He kneeled down and held Eevee in his arms.
"I'm sorry." he whispered and ran back home.
Jay barged through the wooden door to his house and entered the lounge, he told his mother what had happen with guilt covering his face.
Falora released her roserade and had her take care of Eevee, whist Jay began a mild therapy session.
"Don't worry, Eevee will be fine, what you need to focus on now though is your journey, now you have received your starter Pokemon, you can travel around the Henzo region and challenge the Henzo gym leaders!" Reassured Falora.
Jay looked back on Eevee with guilt in his eyes.
"I've let her down mum, she trusted in me, but I was a coward."
"There's no point dwelling on that right now! The best thing you can do is be there for Eevee when she needs you most!"
Jay nodded his head, he grabbed Eevee and gave her a cuddle, Eevee was just coming through with the help of an Oran berry.
"Anyway Jay! I think it's time for you to receive your Pokedex and head on your journey!" replied Falora, attempting to take Jay's mind of Eevee.
"Hm" Jay quickly replied and picked up Eevee carefully, then headed straight for professor blossoms lab on the east side of town.
Jay stared at his surroundings, he could see his home town, full with sunflowers that would wave to him as the wind blew, short stumpy cottages with silky smoke peering from the chimneys. He could smell the fresh essence of the flowers and feel the wind gently brushing his face. On his way he noticed Officer Jenny and her workmen sealing of the windflower bank, he quickly scurried over there and explained to her what had happened.
"Hmm yes. It seems you had an encounter with Alexis Stain," officer Jenny told Jay, "An escaped convict and master art and money thief, the police have been searching for her for about 6 months now, no one really knows what she's up to."
Jay looked confused, staring into space as he imagined Alexis, he's never heard of her before, he then said his goodbyes to Officer Jenny and carried on towards the lab.
"Hello!? Anybody here?" Jay shouted as he barged through the lab door.
At then end of the white tiled lab, a young girl was sitting at her desk with a laptop, researching and typing excessively. She was aware someone had just entered and quickly swivelled her black office chair 180 degrees and made intense eye contact with Jay.
"Ahh Jay my lovely little turnip, I was expecting you hehe," Blossom quietly replied.
Professor blossom had wavy long pink hair and bright blue eyes, her lab coat was way too big for her and so was her thick black glasses. Quite a short girl however must definitely not be underestimated as her research on Pokemon mythology is word renown.
"I take it you heard about the lack of starter Pokemon" she said in a soothing manner "I know it's a disappointment but..."
"A disappointment?" Jay quickly interrupted, Blossom's face looked confused.
"No professor! It's been a blessing." Jay smiled at Eevee, as she did with Jay.
"Well then, I'm glad everything turned out ok for my little carrot cake, here is your pokedex, and here are some cute little pokeballs! Yay"
Professor Blossom started doing a little celebration dance, she got into it so much that she didn't even realise Jay had already left. Thrusting her little arms up and down.
"This is it Eevee! Our own adventure, me and you!" Eevee stared into Jays eyes to see that she had finally been accepted as a worthy partner.
