Off in a remote area in the world of pokemon laid a small town that few would know of, since it is out of the way of the path most people would travel. Even though the town was in such a remote area, a Pokemon Researcher had made her home in the town. Earlier that day, she had given out a lot of starter pokemon that have lived with her for some time. All the children and teenagers had received a starter pokemon of their choice, and went off on their own pokemon journey. She sighed in relief. All her pokemon now had new trainers, and now she could continue her research on the pokemon in the area. She walked over to her chair and sat down. "im glad this is ove-"
Suddenly, a young man threw the door open, his breath short and shallow. His forehead was drenched in sweat, which made it obvious to the Professor that he had ran here. She smiled a little as the young man caught his breath, trying to speak. "I..... I over..... over...."
"Over slept, im guessing" She said, finishing his sentence. He nodded and hung his head down. The Professor got up and walked over to him. "Well, I gave away all of my starter pokemon, so I guess your out of luck."
The young man looked up to her and let out a small plea. "There has to be something left. anything!"
She put her left hand on her hip and lifted a pokeball out from her bag. "This isn't a starter pokemon, but its all I have left. In this pokeball contains a Cottonee. A very timid one at that. If your gonna take her, your gonna have to work hard to gain its trust."
The Young Man nodded in response. "I'll be sure to take good care of her, Professor."
She smiled wider and handed the pokeball over to him. "You'd better, Gio. Now go on, your way behind the other trainers."
Gio smiled and nodded, running out of the lab. The Professor sighed and returned back to her seat, exhausted. "Now its over..."
The small town was no different the any other. However, one of the reasons people lived there was due to a beautiful lake not to far from the town. The water shined like diamonds as the sun's beams reflected off of the surface of the small lake. Small waves would pass by and disrupt the shining appearence as many pokemon played on and within the water. Wingulls were all over the place, and some Duckletts were diving underwater to avoid the Wingulls meschivious behaviours as they swooped down upon the Duckletts. Under the water, many other pokemon could be seen. Magicarp swam all over, and a school of Remoraid swam by the diving Ducklets. Near the edge of the lake, a lone male Surskit walked out of a tall collection of reeds and went towards the water. Slowly stepping upon the water, the Surskit shortly began sliding all over it, avoiding the Duckletts and Wingulls as it went up and over the small waves.
Back towards the town, the young man known as Gio was walking over to the lake with his pokeball in hand, 5 more seen clipped onto his belt. As the lake came into sight, he sat down and began stretching with his pokeball still in his hand. His carefree additude was easy to see, even impossible not to notice.
"Im gonna miss this sparkling lake. It was always fun to swim in it"
The pokeball in his hand slipped out of his grasp and fell onto his knee as Gio layed down in the lush grass. Cottonee shortly poped out after and slowly crept away from him, relaxing some ways away from her trainer. Gio began laughing. "The Professor wasn't kidding when she said you were timid." He said softly to the Cottonee. He quickly sat up, which caused Cottonee to jump away a little. "Well, names Gio, little one. Im sure you'll be used to me before we know i-"
A gust of wind came across the field of grass, whisking up Cottonee in its current. Gio shook his head and got up. "Can't stand up against a small gust of wind, Cottonee?" Gio said before chasing after her. The gust of wind died down, letting down Cottonee in the middle of the lake. She began to splash around on the surface of the lake, slowly begining to sink. As Gio reached the edge of the lake and noticed what was going on, he pulled out Cottonee's pokeball with a worried expression and tried to return Cottonee.
Cottonee suddenly flew out of the water and crashed back onto land, jumping and looking around as she attempted to dry herself. Once she was dry, she began to relax a little. Gio looked towards what could of possibly sent her flying out of the water. Where Cottonee was stood a male Surskit. "So, a Surskit saved Cottonee, huh?" Gio said to himself. It appeared to be laughing a little at Cottonee at how she was splashing around earlier. Cottonee heard Surskit laughing and jumped back towards the lake, using a absorb in Surskits direction. Gio quickly facepalmed as Surskit dodged with ease across the surface of the water, Cottonee splashing into the lake, thrashing around this time. Surskit raced up and tackled Cottonee again, knocking her out of the water again.
Cottonee crashed onto land again, quickly turning and looking towards the Surskit with complete annoyance. The Surskit was just sliding across the water, taunting Cottonee. Gio looked towards Cottonee. "So, you wanna take that Surskit down Cottonee?" He asked her. Cottonee quickly nodded in response. "Heh, you maybe timid, but I guess you don't like being messed with. Well, lets try taking it out from here. Use Leech Seed!" Gio yelled out. Surskit's attention was caught from Gio yelling, looking towards the two as Cottonee fired off a Leech Seed. It managed to hit Surskit. As the Leech Seed began to sap Surskits energy, it began to panic, sliding across the water and bumping into Duckletts and bouncing off of them like a pinball. Cottonee began to chuckle back towards the Surskit. Once more, Cottonee was sent flying into the air, crashing a good 10 feet away due to the Quick Attack Surskit used on her. Gio looked towards the Surskit and grinned. "Perhaps this little guy will be of great use to my team." he thought to himself. Looking towards Cottonee, he yelled out to her to use Absorb. Cottonee got up and dashed at the Surskit, using Absord as ordered, absorbing health from the Surskit. The Leech Seed continued to take away Surskit's health and heal Cottonee, and Surskit wasn't far from fainting from all the damage it took. Surskit used another Quick Attack, hitting Cottonee easily. However, Cottonee countered once more with Absorb, absorbing more health. With the might of Leech Seed and Absorb together, it didn't take long before Surskit stumbled around and fell over, fainted. Cottonee proceeded to laugh once more at Surskit before Gio lightly tapped her. "Don't go hating Surskit too much Cottonee. I plan to add him to our team."
Cottonee looked towards Gio with a look of astonishment as he threw the pokeball, it hitting Surskit and taking him inside.
The ball wiggled once.
It wiggle twice.
Then it wiggled Thrice.
The wild Surskit was...
