I woke up to the sensation of something wet, rough, on my face. I opened my eyes to find a large red tongue
“Get off of me Gibbs.” I mumbled as I tried to push the puppy like Pokemon off of me. He gave me his biggest puppy dog eyes, and I couldn’t say no.
“Fine,” I said as I forced myself out of bed. “I was going to get up anyway” Gibbs just barked. He was wagging his stubby tail, and ran round me like a mad dog. Gibbs has a large face at least when compared to the rest of his body. He had grey eyes and a small red nose. His face was covered in cream colored fur that stuck out all over. It was hard to see where his small mouth was. Behind the cream fur that we called a face, there were two brown ears. He had four legs with three toes at each end. Lastly there was a stub of fur for a tail, and a clump of blue fur on his back. My mom called him a lovely specimen of a Lillipup.
I yawed as I wondered what I would do today. I looked in the mirror that was set across from my bed. Well the first thing I was going to do was change into day clothes. Currently I was wearing noting more then my boxers, and I did not want a repeat of the spaghetti incident. I went to my dresser and graved my blue shorts, white shirt, and straw hat. In a few minutes I was ready for an adventure.
I headed downstairs happy to see my mother making waffles. Fact about me, I love waffles. I ran down the stairs and took my seat. In a few minutes my older sister, Tama came down as well.
“Morning,” She muttered “Coffee.” She made her way to our old machine.
“Mom,” I said “Can I have coffee?”
“No Tommy,” Mom said “You’re too young”
“But Tama get’s some!”
“Tama’s sixteen, you’re only nine” She opened the waffle iron and pulled out the waffles that were done. “I have bad news; Dad is going to be out of town for a few more weeks”
I sighed and then started eating my waffles. My dad is a business worker, and he has to be out of town a lot. Gibbs was sniffing the floor, waiting for crumbs to drop.
“He did send you both something,” Mom said as she walked over to me “For Tommy.” A small red and white ball was dropped into my lap.
“A Pokeball?” I said.
“Yup,” was my mom’s reply “Dad says you should make it count”
I nodded. I knew just what to catch with this.
“And he didn’t forget you, Tama,” Mom said as she walked over to my sister “He sent you a Poffin case!” Tama’s eyes lit up as she took the case.
“I’ve always wanted one!” Tama said as she accepted the case. “Now I can make them with Dave!”
Dave was Tama’s boyfriend he seemed like a nice guy. I don’t know much about him. Time to catch that Pokemon I wanted.
“Mom, can I go to Pinwheel forest?” I asked “I’ll take Gibbs with me.”
“Sure,” She said “Just be back before nightfall”
I got up, called Gibbs and headed out the door. I live in Nacrene City, It’s not the largest city, but we do live near the forest. I walked past the building that severed as a gym and a museum. It was early, and a Saturday, so it was pretty quiet. I saw a few people going to work, some artists panting, a few kids playing with a ball. Some of them waved at me, and gestured to join their game. I waved back, and then shook my head. I had plans today. Gibbs really wanted to play with them, but he could have killed the ball. In a few minutes I was out of the city, and walking on a small road that would take me into the real forest.
The forest was in its prime in the summer, the trees were large and leafy, and moss was every where. You could here the lager amount of cries form just walking into the place. The forest had a branching path. One way was a road that led strait to the exit. The other was a path that had twists and turns, but was really only one path. I went with the road less traveled, Pokemon hug out over there more. I turned to make sure that Gibbs was following me. He was smelling something that looked like a battery.
“Come on boy!” I yelled at him. Gibbs left his find behind as we went into the forest. I looked around for the Pokemon I wanted. I saw a millipede like pokemon scurry across the grass. I looked at a tree and saw a cotton like Pokemon trying to impress another cotton ball. None of these were the Pokemon I wanted. I looked around some more, with no luck. I punched a tree in anger, and some thing fell on to my head.
“GAH!” I yelled trying to shake it off of my head, “GET IT OFF GET IT OFF!” Gibbs rammed me, and knocked me down. I checked my hat, and nothing was on it.
“Thanks, Gibbs,” I told him “when we get home, I’ll give you a chewy bone”
I looked around for what had fallen on me. A few feet away a small bug was standing, s little stunned from the fall. It had a yellow face with two knobs sticking out of the top. It had black and white eyes, and a Pac Man like mouth. Under the mouth, a white segment started, and ended a little down the body. It had a leaf right behind its head, and other leafs seem to cover its stubby body. It had six small orange knobs for feet. It was a Sewaddle.
I caught my breath this was the Pokemon I wanted. You may be curious about why I wanted one. Well a few weeks ago the Gym leader of a different town, Burgh, had come thru here. He had a Leavanny, and it was awesome! It won all the fights that it was in. I learned that Leavanny evolves from a Sewaddle, and wanted one. Now was my chance!
“Gibbs,” I said “Use tackle!” Gibbs ran at the Sewaddle, and hit it head on. The small grass type, out of its daze, summoned sharp leafs and tossed them at Gibbs. Gibbs got hit by a few of them.
“Now” I yelled “Bite!” Gibbs ran at the bug, and clamped down on the Sewaddle’s body. It made a sound that sounded like an angry yip. Sewaddle started to struggle using Struggle Bug. This knocked Gibbs off of it.
The Sewaddle looked weak, from both the fall and the fight. I took a chance and tossed my Pokeball.
