A/N: Hi there guys! I was suggested to post my Pokemon Special fanfiction 'Upon the 25th Battle', here on Bulbagarden. I was thinking about it, but this really positively pushed me to finally post here! As you may see, this fan fiction is also on fanfiction, and I'm totally fine if you want to talk to me on either of these two sites. I would really appreciate a review, words of advice or any sort of constructive feedback. I'm striving to become a better writer so people can enjoy my fanfiction much more.
PLEASE READ HERE!:
From the original post of my fanfiction on fanfiction.net: "Rakutsu/Faitsu: 13; Black/White:17 (Ewwww, wat NO); Emerald: 17; Platinum:16; Pearl/Dia: 15; Ruby/Sapphire: 19 (EVEN WORSE); Crys/Gold: 21, Silver: 20; Yellow/Red/Green: 22; Blue: 23
There I made the ages. But EW. Black and White? SEVENTEEN!? Well here you all go...Hope this isn't too not canon when the BW2 arc is translated and such..."
Also keep in mind that this fic is slightly outdated. Please let me know if you see any issues. If there are any more questions, please let me know them! Ok, here we go.
Another day began in Castelia City as the sunrise painted the sky, slightly obscured by tall buildings. The warmth of the sun readied me for the new day, a new day which held the opening of Clay's newest tourist trap. The Pokémon World Tournament.
Many famous trainers and gym leaders would all gather together to determine who the greatest trainer of them all would be. The process would be long and tedious, but would ultimately end in a victor. As for me, I've assigned Looker and myself to run security for this enormous event to make sure the threat of any of those Team Plasma fools is equivalent to zero.
Before Looker and I departed, Faitsu promised that we meet up with Black and White for lunch in Stritation City at Cilan, Cress, and Chili's old gym. I scolded Faitsu for planning something so unnecessary when I should be busy working with the security, but she then went on to tell me how important learning from our seniors is, and we should spend time with them every once in a while. I eventually gave in, and we got moving. We met up near Skyarrow bridge and proceeded to walk all the way down to Route 4. I found myself complaining the whole way down, more than likely making Faitsu want to complain more than I was.
"Seniors, hah! How is he my senior? I've already accomplished more than he ever has, and I've saved more lives than he has." I tried to explain to her, my voice haughty and loud. She shot me a glare; her light blue eyes seemed to stare on into my soul. I quickly shifted my gaze away from Faitsu and looked at the Day Care center. Numerous laughing children ran up the staircase towards the Pokémon inside the wooden gates. The Day Care man attempted to shoo them away, but his actions went unnoticed.
"Must I remind you I'm an international police officer? I watch over the people of the world. Like those children." I gestured my left arm toward the pack of children attempting to pet a Herdier and Skitty.
"I could have saved those innocent children. And what has he done for those innocent children? Nothing." I purposely looked directly away from her to avoid another dagger glare. I heard her sigh, and I then mentally decided to quit my complaining not only because I'm a high ranking officer, but I'm sure Faitsu would grow even more angry at me. I mean, it's not that I hate Black, but he shouldn't be qualified to be my senior.
We approached the tall building and passed by a table shaded by a striped umbrella. I opened the door and felt the cool breeze of air conditioning brush my face. My hand held the door open for Faitsu.
"Thank you!" She chirped, gracefully walking into the restaurant. I closed the door behind me, following her to the counter. Cilan was currently sorting a pile of papers in front of himself, not noticing our presence. I let out a small cough to attempt to gain his attention, but he did not respond.
"Ummmm, hello. We're here to meet two other people? Black and White?" Faitsu quietly asked, her arms hidden behind her back. Faitsu shyly smiled at him. Cilan looked up and smiled as well. "Oh, sorry about that. They're right over here. Please enjoy your lunch!" He gestured his hand over to two people who appeared to be arguing. I groaned. 'This is going to be a fun day.'
"Thank you, sir." Faitsu replied. We walked over to the table Black and White were sitting at. White shushed Black, telling him that this lunch would be quick and warmly waved at us. Black seemed entirely eager to leave. I guess that makes two of us.
She greeted us, and told us to each pull out a chair. Both of us sat down and picked up our brightly decorated menus. The restaurant was beautifully decorated with ornate curtains hanging on the wall. The floors reflected light like spotless glass and the walls were painted a creamy white. Many people seating around us were talking and drinking delectable tea brewed by the talented ex gym leaders and their Pokémon. The sounds of forks clanking with the plate and soft murmurs became pleasant background noise. I held my breath and stayed on my best behavior.
"Hello, Senior White and Black! How are you?" Faitsu greeted, pushing her light brown bangs back, voice full of excitement and curiosity. One would hardly even guess she used to be part of Team Plasma. I remember when I found out, the shock was almost overwhelming. I think Hugh almost died. Who would have thought that the new girl at Cheren's trainer school was involved with an evil organization?
"Hi, Faitsu! I'm glad you two are here. I have important business to discuss with you guys." White dug into her bag and pulled out a manila folder. She looked though the thousands of important looking papers and extracted a yellow one. Black shifted in his seat, and looked over at the paper held in White's hand.
"Hey Prez, what's that?" He asked what we all were thinking. He propped up his head on his hand. Faitsu moved a little forward in her seat in hopes of getting a look of the paper herself. I crossed my arms, reclining in my seat.
"Well this is the flyer for the PWT. As you all know, this event is widely well known throughout the world. As such, I thought I should let you all know…" White explained.
"Wait, the PWT is the Pokémon World Tournament, right?" I broke into White's sentence. "I'm actually in charge of security because it's going to have many important people attending, and we can't have anyone ruining or hurting anyone. It'll most likely be a target is for anyone evil." I added.
"Well, yes. The Pokémon World Tournament. Director said he was going to broadcast it all over the world actually so I'll be busy and unable to introduce you guys, but I will battle-"
"Wait, who will you be introducing us to?" Faitsu asked.
"Well, actually what I wanted to tell you guys is that the other Pokedex Holders will be attending this tournament, and will be battling to find out who is the best…" White answered. She continued to look at the paper clasped in her hand.
"Wait…What?!" Black exclaimed in shock. He banged his fists on the white marble table, looked around at our confused faces and thought about his situation for a bit. I blankly looked at him. He really was stupid.
"Yeah, the Pokémon World Tournament, or the PWT. I thought you liked to research these sorts of things, Black." I said to him. Black sheepishly looked back at me.
"I…I guess I've been so caught up in helping rebuild the Pokémon league I never really heard of the PWT…" He sighed. "I still can't believe I'm going to meet the Dex Holders, our seniors! I might get to battle Red!" He cheered, his laughs somewhat louder then everyone else's voices. Customers looked at us, save for a few people in the way back near the velvet red curtain.
"Well, I was just informing you all that our seniors will be attending and to be on your best behavior. I have only heard of a few of them, and you guys will need to introduce yourselves because I will not be there until my duties with the director are complete." White explained to us. She unrolled her silver knife and fork out of her napkin, and placed the napkin on her lap. Black seemed excited about the new news he just heard and I couldn't help to feel the same way. It's not every day when you get to meet amazing people like our senior's seniors.
"Of course, Senior White." Faitsu assured White, she brightly smiled. Just as White was about to reply, a few girls dressed in pinks and purples walked by our table looking right at me, giggling and laughing.
"Hello, Rakutsu!" They squealed. "How are you today?!" I waved at them and laughed.
"I'm going just fine girls, thank you." They all looked at each other and screamed, quickly running away. White and Black covered their ears as Faitsu was used to this sort of thing already. I was just glad Hugh wasn't here, he would just yell at me to focus again.
I looked back over at White, who shot me a forced grin.
"Ah, it seems you're a bit popular, eh, Rakutsu?" Black said. His manner of speaking showed he was amused by the scene that had just unfolded. He sat back in his wooden chair and crossed his arms. I couldn't help but smile at his comment.
"Yeah, Rakutsu has always seemed to attract girls like that!" Faitsu laughed, covering her mouth with her hands. "I would have been surprised if they didn't do that…!" She added.
"And I'm guessing you're totally immune to his dashing looks?" White joined in. She gave Faitsu the cheesiest grin I have ever seen. Faitsu gasped and clasped the locket around her neck.
"Of course I am immune! How could I ever betray Lord N?" Faitsu replied in shock. White and Black groaned, I guess they forgot Faitsu was still very much loyal to N. She was upset that N disappeared and has asked Black and White to help look for them, but they declined, saying that the choice to leave was N's rightful choice.
Cress walked over with a pad of paper in one hand. He gracefully whipped out a pen from his pocket and pushed his dark blue hair back.
"Hello there, May I take your order?" He asked us, looking at White. She looked at Cress with a guilty look. "Uh, we aren't exactly ready yet…" White told him. She opened her menu and looked down into it. Her brown hair fell in front of her face, she then pushed it back behind her shoulders.
"Oh, I'll be back when you're ready…" Cress told her. He then quickly walked back to the counter where Cilan was.
"Wait…Who's paying for this meal?" I wondered out loud. I rested my hands behind my head and waited for at least someone to answer. Black shrugged and said, "Hey, I was forced to come here because of Prez. I'm not paying."
"I'm sorry, but I donated my money to the Pokémon recovery efforts that Hugh is helping run with my ex teammates…" Faitsu added.
White sat in her seat in her seat and glared at the three of us. "What? Me?" She sarcastically remarked, putting her hands up in a quizzical manner. We all looked at each other and laughed. That's what was great about us Unova Dex Holders, no matter the issues and differences between us, we always get over it.
"Of course, I called this meeting together after all. The BW Agency will cover the costs!" White cheered, raising one arm in the air. Black and Faitsu looked at each other and laughed again.
Maybe today won't be as bad as I thought…
A/N: Thank you for reading. Please review and share your thoughts! My only comment is that since this fic is slightly outdated, so are Rakutsu and Faitsu's personalities. As I got use to who they are over the months, I grew to understand how they work as a person. So as a result, their personalities and thoughts may seem a bit choppy.
