    Post Gary Oak and The Philosopher's Squirtle

    NOTE: Pokemon being requested is Squirtle.

    Gary was the best thing ever. He was currently staying in his home in Pallet Town, with his grandfather, Professor Oak. Gary lay back on his bed one night and thought "I wanna be the very best... like no none ever was... to catch them will be my real test... to train will be my cause!" then he leapt out of bed. "I will travel across the land... searching far and wide... To teach Pokemon to understand... the power that's inside!" Gary stuck his head out the window. "POKEMON! GOTTA CATCH 'EM ALL! IT'S YOU AND ME, I KNOW IT'S MY DESTINY! POKEMON! OOOH! YOUR MY BEST FREIND IN A WORLD WE MUST DEFEND!" Gary then proceeded to run down stairs to where his grandfather and parents were. "POKEMON! GOTTA CATCH 'EM ALL! OUR HEARTS SO TRUE OUR COURAGE WILL PULL US THROUGH!" Gary then opened the front door and stood outside. "YOU TEACH ME AND I'LL TEACH YOU! PO-KE-MOOOOOOOON! GOTTA CATCH 'EM ALL! GOTTA CATCH 'EM ALL!"
    Gary then ran around Pallet Town singing the Pokemon theme song.

    The next morning, while the Oak family were eating breakfast, Professor Oak told Gary he was impressed by his singing last night. He then told Gary that he would give him an Eevee to begin his Pokemon journey with. Gary was so excited by this, he leapt out of his seat, knocking breakfast all over the floor. In less than a minute, Gary was out of his pyjamas and fully dressed. "Where's my Pokemon, gramps?" Gary asked, confidently.
    Professor Oak led Gary over to a lone Pokeball sitting on a table. "In here, is an Eevee. Eevee is capable of having multiple evolutions, so you must choose wisely, Gary." said Oak.
    "Don't worry" said Gary. "You can count on me, gramps!".

    And so, Gary set out with his Eevee. He was headed to Viridian City. Gary couldn't wait to see Eevee, so he commanded Eevee to come out of the Pokeball... and so it did! "Yeah! Eevee, your gonna be the very best, OK?" Gary said, and Eevee nodded in agreement. The cocky duo were just about to leave Pallet Town when Gary heard his grandfather shouting for him! Gary turned round to see that Professor Oak had forgotten to give Gary a Pokedex! "Here you are, Gary! I assume you will do your best to fill it up!" and so, Gary finally left Pallet Town, Eevee by his side, and ready to start his Pokemon journey!

    Along the first route, the two encountered several trainers. However, these trainers were easily beaten by Gary and Eevee, and Gary had also managed to get some data on his Pokedex already. A river was suddenly in sight, and Gary told Eevee they would rest there for a bit. The duo ran to the river, and along the way they heard a voice: "Honestly, James, why are you being so camp?"
    "but Jessie, why are you dressed in such a way that you look like a prostitute?"
    and then there was a chorus of laughter between these male and female voices.
    "OK then, you two!" said a somewhat annoying voice. "Let's go over the motto one more time!"
    "Fair enough then, Meowth..." said the female voice.
    "Prepare for trouble! Make it double! To protect the world from devastation! To unite all peoples within our nation! To denounce the evils of truth and love! To extend our reach to the stars above! Jessie! James! Team Rocket, blast off at the speed of light! Surrender now or prepare to fight! Meowth! That's right!"

    Gary didn't like the sound of this motto. He told Eevee they should go check it all out. When they got to the forest clearing, there were two strange characters and a Pokemon. A male wearing what looked like the uniform of ciminals Gary had seen on the T.V., and another, a woman, wearing the same uniform. The man had blue hair, whilst the woman had long purple hair that went behind her back like some kind of giant ponytail. Apart from them, there was a Pokemon. Gary got out his Pokedex. "Who's that Pokemon?"
    "Meowth, the Scratch Cat Pokémon. Meowth loves to roam at night to gather coins and other objects that sparkle, but it spends most of the daylight hours sleeping." the Pokedex said, in a robotic voice.
    "Sounds lazy." said Gary.
    "YOU'LL REGRET THAT!" said the Meowth.
    Gary jumped back in shock at this talking Pokemon.
    "WHOA! YOU CAN TALK... uh, Eevee! Use tackle attack!"
    Eevee leapt at Meowth, knocking it out.
    "What the f-" said the blue haired male, before being interrupted by the purple haired woman.
    "Is that how you roll then? Prepare to face Team Rocket!"
    oddly, the entire scenery faded and was replaced by a space background with a large, red 'R' in the centre. How this happened is beyond reality and should not be taken too seriously.
    "Prepare for trouble! Make it double! To protect the world from devastation! To unite all peoples within our nation! To denounce the evils of truth and love! To extend our reach to the stars above! Jessie! James! Team Rocket, blast off at the speed of light! Surrender now or prepare to fight! Meowth! That's right!"

    Meowth lunged at Eevee, and Gary ordered Eevee to Tackle Meowth again, this time not knocking it out quite, and Mewoth decided to attack Eevee with Fury Swipes, only missing epicly. Gary told Eevee to use Tackle once again, and Meowth was knocked to the ground. "So that's how you like to play then?" Said James. "Then taste my way of playing the game! GO! KOFFING!" James sent out a large purple ball of what looked like gas that was floating in mid-air.
    "What the hell is that Pokemon?" said Gary, reaching for his Pokedex.
    "Koffing, the Poison Gas Pokemon. Is is prone to explode on occasion, making it a brilliant choice for terroist attacks." said the Pokedex.
    "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! NOT BOMBS!" cried Gary. Gary ordered Eevee to use Reflect, which put a wonderful barrier up around Eevee.
    "Is that the best you can then? KOFFING! Use Explosion!" James said, and Koffing did as instructed. However, due to Reflect, Explosion's damage was reduced greatly, and Eevee took hardly any damage at all! "NOOO! KOFFING!" cried James, mourning over his fainted Koffing.
    "Well then, it's not double trouble for nothing! GO! EKANS!" Jessie sent out an Ekans.
    "Heh! I battled one these earlier! I know exactly how to take this thing down! EEVEE! USE SKULL BASH!" Gary said. Eevee did as instructed, and prepared itself for the attack.
    "Haha! Well then, Ekans, use Poison Sting!" said Jessie. Ekans used Poison Sting on Eevee. Although the attack did hardly any damage, Eevee was poisoned!
    "Oh no! Eevee! ...oh well, continue to use Skull Bash! Let's get this over with!" said Gary. Skull Bash was used on the Ekans, and the Ekans was knocked flying into a tree.
    "How did he do that?" said James.
    "I don't know... He must be very powerful to take us all down with one stupid Eevee!" said Jessie.
    "STUPID?! Eevee! You can't let them say that! USE IRON TAIL ON ALL OF THEM!" said Gary, and Eevee used it's tail to get as hard as iron, and smacked the Team Rocket members into the sky!
    "Team Rocket is blasting off agaaaaaaiiiiiiin!" Team Rocket cried, before going so far into the sky they could no longer be seen.

    Gary and Eevee then began to head over to the route again when Gary noticed Eevee was still poisoned. "Oh yeah, I almost forgot!" said Gary, and he pulled out a drink. "This drink was made by my gramps, he says it can even cure cancer! Come on, Eevee! drink it and you'll be OK!" Eevee drank the drink and was no longer shivering. "There! and for your hard work, how about this too?" and Gary pulled another drink from his pocket. Eevee refused to drink the drink! NOTE: I will tell this third person. Pokémon being requested is Squirtle.

    "COME ON EEVEE, DRINK IT!" shouted Gary at his Eevee.
    "It's some stuff made out of healthy vitamins! You love this stuff... well, you should anyway."
    Eevee turned it's head away in objection to the drink.
    "FINE! Then you'll have to carry on without any fluids in your body!"
    Eevee looked at Gary blankly.
    Gary let out a sigh and carried on walking, Eevee following behind.
    The two ended up just outside of Viridian City, and hoped to rest at the Pokémon Center there. However, much to Gary's surprise, two policeman were standing in the way of the entrance!
    "Excuse me" said one of the policeman. "Who are you, exactly?"
    Gary smiled and got his Trainer Card from his pocket.
    "Heh! I'm Gary M___________G Oak! The best trainer from Pallet Town!" Gary said, grinning.
    The cops looked at Gary in shock. What they had just heard was not something they would expect to hear from a trainer of his age towards a policeman.
    Gary walked on past the cops, without asking because he really is that amazing.
    One of the policemen pulled out a megaphone and called into it, alerting the entire city.
    "ATTENTION! A TRAINER KNOWN AS GARY M___________G OAK HAS ENTERED VIRIDIAN CITY! PERHAPS OUR SQUIRTLE PROBLEM WILL SOON BE RESOLVED!"
    A loud sigh of relief could be heard, and Gary looked round to see he had a crowd of people.
    "Yeah, take a good look at the soon-to-be best trainer ever!" said Gary, waving. "So good to see after such a short time, I have so many adoring fans!"
    Just then, the crowd began pointing and screaming.
    "What? OK,OK, I'm Gary M___________G Oak, yeah, I'm so awesome, there's no need to get too excited!"
    Then the crowd began screaming. Some girls could be heard screaming at loud rates just like you'd see in any horror movie.
    "FOR CRYING OUT LOUD, AM I REALLY THAT AMAZING? (well, yes, but be modest... heh heh heh)"
    and then, Gary looked round to see the crowd was not poitning and screaming at him, but at what was behind him.
    It was the most biggest shock Gary had had so far.
    It was blue.
    It was powerful.
    It had an evil glare on it's face like it was a pimp.
    If it were giant, people would scream "GODZILLAAAAA!"
    and then, it opened it's mouth:
    "squirtle squirtle!"
    Gary looked in surprise at the Squirtle.
    "Who's that Pokémon?" Gary said, pulling out his Pokédex.
    "Squirtle: the Tiny Turtle Pokémon. It's shell is so hard not even the hardest thing you can think of will pierce it."
    "Well, the hardest thing I can think of can pierce anything, 'cause it's MY d-"
    The Squirtle let out a cry and ran at Eeevee!
    "EEVEE! USE TAIL WHIP!"
    Eevee did as instructed, and the Squirtle had a smile on it's Face. However, the Squirtle also used Tail Whip!
    Gary countered this attack with another Tail Whip and the Squirtle would do the same, until both of the Pokémon had the most relaxed expressions on their faces.
    "Heh heh heh! OK, Eevee, use your Tackle attack!" orded Gary.
    Eevee launched itself at the Squirtle and it went flying, smacking into Viridian Gym with a load 'thud' before it fell to floor and started sliding along the ground in it's shell, bouncing off buildings like any Koopa Shell would from a Mario game.
    Gary looked round to see the crowd cheering, and a group of cheerleaders were dancing and singing for Gary.
    "GARY GARY, HE'S OUR MAN! IF HE CAN'T DO IT, NO ONE CAN! GOOOOO GARY! YEAH!"
    "haha! Thank you, thank you!" Gary said, happily.
    Gary patted Eevee on the head and tried to give it the drink from earlier. However, Eevee still refused to drink it.
    Gary decided Eevee just wasn't going to drink it, and threw it away regarding it as useless. However, Gary noticed the Squirtle was no longer bouncing off the walls anymore; it was drinking the drink Gary had thrown away, much to his surprise!
    The Squirtle came over to Gary and seemed to have taken quite fond to him.
    Then, an old man came over the Gary. "HOLY SNORLAX WASTE, I'VE JUST HAD MY DOUBLE SHOT OF ESPRESSO AND I AM WIRED!" the old man was bouncing on the balls of his feet while he said this.
    "YOU LOOK LIKE YOU WANT THAT SQUIRTLE! WELL, I'M REAL HAPPY FOR YOU AND ALL AND IMMA LET YOU FINISH, BUT I AM ONE OF THE BEST GUIDES AT CATCHING POKEMON OF ALL TIME! ...OF ALL TIME!"
    Gary looked at the old man in confusion.
    "O...kay." he said to the old man.
    The old man laughed and got a Ultra Ball from his pocket, and two stimulant drinks also fell out.
    "don't worry about picking them up, I've got plenty back at home"
    The old man then threw the Ultra Ball at the Squirtle. The ball shook a little. And then, huzzah! Squirtle was caught!
    "WOW!" cried Gary. "CAN I HAVE IT?"
    "Well..." said the Old Man. "You COULD have it... but I think the lord should evaluate your life so far..."
    "WHAT?" Gary said, shocked by this.
    "I'd love you to have the Squirtle, but somebody needs to see if your story so far is good enough to let me give you this Squirtle!"
    "OK, fair enough then."
    And so, Gary had built a better relationship with Eevee, and had also gathered some fans. He and Eevee went to the nearest Pokemon Center to recover from the day's work. A Nurse Joy healed Eevee, and Gary saw the same old man from earlier. Gary, excited by the old man's appearence, asked if he could have the Squirtle.
    "Well," said the Old Man. "I never knew what this Squirtle was. Apparently, it's the Philosopher's Squirtle, a Squirtle that was born and raised in West Philadelphia, on the playground it spent most of it's days. Then a couple of guys, they were up to no godod, statred causing trouble in this Squirtle's neighbourhood. And then the Squirtle's mother got scared after it got into a fight and said it was going to live with his auntie and uncle in Bel-air. There, a philosopher said he would take the Squirtle in care."
    Gary looked at the Old Man in surprise.
    "So... this Squirtle is pretty damn fresh then?" said Gary.
    "Yeah. That's why I don't know as the whether the gods will even allow you to have it, which makes me think should I even bother trying?" said the Old Man.
    "WHAT? Don't you know who I am? I'm Gary MOTHERF-"
    "Yes, I know who you are, boy!" said the Old Man again. "My my, you really do seem confident. Maybe you will be good with this Squirtle. I had that feeling when I caught it. Well, I will go and ask the lord's approval now... wait there, Gary."

    Gary did as instructed, and waited there. He knew there was a good chance of having that Squirtle, as he had tried harder than ever before and put a lot of effort in. Until next time, smell ya later!

    Default Re: Gary Oak and The Philosopher's Squirtle

    I'm sorry, but this story is far too short for a Squirtle. As stated in this thread, a Squirtle is a Hard ranking Pokemon. This means your story should be somewhere around 20,000 to 30,000 characters in length. Right now, your story is only about 13,000 characters. (You can check character count in Microsoft Word).

    I suggest reading the How to Write Stories thread for some help. You should also take a glance at pe2k's Story Board for a general idea on how stories should look. :)

    Also, Squirtle is a Mart Pokemon, who is available for purchase for 8,000. That may be easier than writing 20k for it.
