This is my first Fanfic ever, so please cut my some slack.
This is NOT a self-insert, While I may share the name, the character himself and his personality is imagined.
So here goes nothing!
EDIT: This is Rated PG-15 -There is Violence and Character Death in the story-
It took one fateful encounter to flip a boy's life upside down.
You see before this, I was a normal guy, a chump just like you. However fate pulled a fast one on me, I saw something that I wasn't supposed to see, and now my life is terror and choas. My only friend is my pokemon, Treecko. Ironicly it was that incident that tyed our fates together, made us trainer and pokemon. We have faced many challenged together, we're practicly brothers, twins. I guess thats what we really are,

Chapter one: Unlikely Beginnings
Gravel groaned in protest as I made my way to Birch’s laboratory at the fringe of the forest. I felt ready, ready to get my first Pokémon and begin an already delayed journey. I felt ready, that was until I found out Birch wasn’t even there.
“A vacation! Why in the world would a Professor want to take a vacation!”
“Hey don’t look at me!” his lab aide replied putting her hands up in surrender, “You’re the one who didn’t show up last week!”
I didn’t like his aide, she looked like a Poochyena and had eyes like a Spearow.
“I had a cold!” I yelled, “sheesh!”
“Well tough luck, come back next week. Besides I heard the Sevii Islands are great this time of year, if
he’s smart he’ll move there.” She smirked.
I glared at her as I turned to make my leave, stomping out. So here I am, mad and miserable, stuck here because on that day, the day when I would leave, I had caught a cold confining me to my bed the whole day.
I went home and headed to my room to prepare myself for an exciting day sulking in my room about the delay to my journey, when a scream rent the air.
“Thabet! Get down here!” My mom called.
After rushing downstairs I was shocked to find my family or most of it (my father was off on a business trip to Johto) confronting a Treecko. The little green geecko-like Pokémon had a strong tail used for bashing, and had skinny arms and legs that had hooked claws enabling him to crawl up and down walls. It was huddled in a corner as two of my brothers were preparing to jump it, my mother stood behind them with only a broom as her weapon while my youngest brother hid behind her.
Apparently, my mom was sweeping when she spotted the thing, and of course being the eldest I had become the terminator of the household.
I watched as my brothers were knocked away with two swift blows to the head, they had bumps the size of apples after be whacked by its tail. My family looked at it with disgust, I looked in awe, he was trapped, outnumbered yet he refuses to give in, I respected him.
My mother begged to differ, just as my mother swung the broom to squash the pokemon, I decided to be a hero.
Stars danced around my eyes as I stood protectively over the Treecko.
“Don’t kill it!” I protested. I could feel a welt grow on my head but my mother wasn’t exactly rushing to offer an apology.
“But its big eyes are creepy and it crawls all over the wall!” she argued.
“Oh come on, cut him some slack. Who knows green could be the color of the season.” Okay, I'm bad at jokes. “Look I’ll get rid of him, I’ll take him to the forest, okay?”
“Fine, but do it quickly.” she said as she marched off. My brothers –clutching their heads- followed her out of the room.
I checked up on the Treecko, wrapped up a cut on his upper left leg, and carried him outside of the house and towards the forest leading to Oldale town.
At the edge of the forest, I laid him down, looking at me in confusion. I felt awkward just leaving like that, so I decided to talk to him before I left.
“Well, I guess this is goodbye.”
I felt increasingly awkward.
“Nice meeting you, even if you did cost me half my brain cells” I said pointing to my head.
All he did was turn around and limp off on three legs. I watched him leave until I could see him no more.
………… Two days later …………
I was poking around my cereal that morning when my mom reminded me about me about my job at the Pokemart at Oldale town. I worked there part-time with my Uncle who owns the place, I go there twice a week and spend the night at his house. He calls it an “internship”, yeah right, just a way to get work done without a paycheck.
I left my family at the table discussing my dad’s return to get ready. I’d have to cross the forest to get Oldale, it was dangerous to go without a Pokémon but I had none so I had to muddle through alone.
I put on my regular black fleece over my blue jeans to get ready. I looked in my mirror to see my brown-haired green-eyed reflection staring back at me.
As I tied on my black shoes I thought about the weird events that kept occurring through the last couple of days, I keep hearing a weird rustling around me, I thought it was a Zigzagoon at first but its getting more frequent.
Anyway, I finished getting ready and after trying to tame my unruly hair, I headed to the forest. As I walked through I felt oddly jumpy so I began whistling in a vain attempt to calm myself down.
Slowly, yet menacingly a pack of Poochyena emerged from the undergrowth, their backs arced and their hairs bristling they growled at me. I knew that if I ran away I would be killed, period. They were stronger and faster than I was, yet instinctively I ran away.
A blow to the small of my back sent me to the ground and at their mercy, yet just before they were going to pounce and make Pokechow out of me, a shadow slammed into the Pokémon, I immediately identified it as the Treecko! There he stood fighting them off , defending me, the old white cloth I used to wrap his wound was still there even though he was obviously healed.
“Watch out!” I yelled in warning.
The Treecko swiftly pounded the little Pokémon sending them scurrying off in dismay. He then turned to me, offering his tail in greeting. I shaked it in disbelief,
“You’ve been following me all this time?”
“Well you saved my life, so how about we hang out a bit? I’m heading towards Oldale town.”
In response, he climbed up my back clinging with his claws.
“Talk about hitching a ride.”
