All Aeric Caeren had wanted was to get a Christmas present for his nephew. Backspace here, mate. He had never intended to be caught in a volcanic eruption. Backspace the paragraph here, mate. The only reason he had come to Cinnabar Island in the first place was to have the Wing Fossil he had purchased in Isshu revived.
As Aeric, having dropped off the fossil for revival, Backspace here, mate. went to the hotel where he was staying, the ground began to shake.
Why was this happening? thought Aeric. Since you already put "thought Aeric" in your sentence, you don't have to put quotation marks around, well, his thoughts. And Backspace here, mate. The seismographs in the lab should have activated before this. There was no warning whatsoever, Backspace here, mate. not even the Absol that had been released onto the volcano came down to warn anyone about this. When you think, you usually don't think like this (or even talk like this, for that matter). When writing thoughts and dialogue, try to write them as you would think or say them, dude.
The inhabitants of Cinnabar Island were already making their way to the port, running as fast as they could to the boats that waited there. Backspace here, mate. Aeric went as well, but he did not plan on evacuating just yet.
When he got to the port, people were loading onto boats, riding away on large Water-type pokemon, and taking off with their flying pokemon.
After each boat had been filled, it set sail for Pallet Town, the closest port to Cinnabar. Backspace here, mate. Soon, all of the boats except one had been filled and had left, Backspace here, mate. and it was obvious that there would not be enough room on the remaining small ship.
The remaining people began to panic, and Aeric called out to them, Backspace here, mate. "I'm Aeric Caeren, member of the Elite four and Flying-type master!"
This quieted the people down and they looked at him expectantly.
Aeric continued: "I will use my pokemon to get you to safety, but they can't take all of you. Backspace here, mate. Whoever wants to volunteer to fly, can, and the others will Backspace here, mate. go on the boat." Enter key here, mate.
This caused the some of remaining evacuees to look at each other, Backspace key here, mate. worried about being separated from their families. Enter key here, mate.
Then one young man raised his hand and said, Backspace here, mate. "I'll go, Mr. Caeren."
He was a student at the lab, Comma unneeded. and had no family on Cinnabar to begin with. Backspace here, mate. Some other students volunteered, and a couple of young trainers as well. Enter key here, mate.
After he had six volunteers, Aeric said, "OK, everyone who isn't flying, get on that boat."
Backspace here, mate. After everyone had boarded and the boat was full, it left Cinnabar and began making its way to Pallet Town.
Aeric then sent out his pokemon. Enter key here, mate.
Dragonite and Drifblim could each carry two people by themselves, and Braviary and Aerodactyl could take one person each as well. Backspace here, mate. That left Aeric with his Charizard, which he didn't send out yet.
"All right, get ready for take-off, everyone," Aeric said.
Aeric smiled as the brave young people left, until only he and the first student to volunteer were still on Cinnabar.
The young man said, "Mr. Caeren, will you be alright? Can your last pokemon get you to Pallet Town?"
Aeric said to him, "I'll be fine, kid. Charizard'll get me there safely, but I have some unfinished business on this island. You better get goin'."
The student said, "Okay, Mr. Caeren, I'll see you at Pallet."
He then got on Wargle's back and they flew off over the sea to Pallet Town.
Aeric sent out Charizard, and said to the Flame pokemon, "We need to get to that lab, Charizard. There might be an Aaken that needs savin'."
Having directed his pokemon where to go, Aeric got on Charizard's back and they took off like a rocket towards Cinnabar Lab.
