Story by Feng277394. AKA- Bill.
Bill just started his Pokemon journey today, so he has no idea or experience at adventuring.
Dunsparce is my favorite Pokemon! So of course I would capture it!
Keeper of the Cave!
Taking his first steps into Route 31 from the Violet City borders, Bill begun his journey as a Pokemon Trainer! With his trusty Sentret, Swipes, Bill marches confidently on a sketchy dirt path, sprouting the beginning of his own adventures.
"Hey Swipes, today is the first day we get to start traveling without my dad!" said Bill with glee and happiness.
"Ret-Reet!" cried the tiny Sentret with confidence.
Previously, whenever Bill wanted to travel out of the big city, his father would prevent him from sidetracking into the wildlife by strangling Bill's ambitions with a tough, strict iron fist. Swipes, a Sentret who was once Bill's childhood pet and friend, is now his companion for years to come on his new adventure.
The very first thing Bill did on Route 31 was rush directly into the moist tall grasses. Impatiently, he searched the grass for living creatures. Bill stared into the wild grass on the opposite side of the road, glacing at a huge Caterpie feeding on plant stems.
Bill shouted and pointed at the bug, "A Caterpie!"
Swipes pointed at the big pokemon, mimicing Bill,"Seeenn!"
"Swipes! Use Scratch"
Swipes revealed its sharp claws hidden in its furry right paw and viciously jumped at the Caterpie with all its fury
"Ieeee!" screeched the massive bug Pokemon.
Caterpie sprung into rapid action after seeing the terrifying Sentret jump at it, and uses String Shot. Swipes is captured by the sticky fibers and is strung to a tree.
"Swipes! Noo!" screamed Bill in terror.
As Bill rushed to help his Sentret, Caterpie made a quick escape back into the untamed grass.
"W-wait!" Bill threw one of his two pokeballs that were given to begin his journey at the Caterpie, but it hastily avoided it.
"*sigh* What a bad start for the beginning of our adventure, Swipes," exclaims Bill in a negative and gloomy manner as he attempted to undo the thick silk that Swipes is glued under.
"Sennn..." weeped Swipes for its failure to fight the Caterpie.
"I guess I'm not that great of a trainer after all, Swipes."
"Sent!" disapproved his Pokemon.
"No, your wrong, I was never prepared for this journey, I might as well just go back to Father..." Bill was about to make his way back to Violet City, when Swipes jumped in front of him, blocking the way.
As the sky grew darker when night danced its way through the clouds, haze begun crawling into what was daylight. Bill begun feeling a freezing cold cling to his body, so he began searching for the closest shelter possible on the route.
"Swipes, a cave! We should be safe here for the night!"
"Trrreeet?" Swipes felt some mysterious presence coming from the terrifyingly dark cave.
Bill took out his flashlight from his bag, not knowing that the cave he was diving into was the infamous "Dark Cave". A treacherously long passage from Violet to Blackthorn City blackened by darkness which has been a local area known for producing long lists of missing hikers and adventurers.
The further Bill ascended into the dark passage, the more stiff and awkward Swipes began to feel. After a few minutes or so, Bill has cluelessly forgotten where the entrance of the cave was. Swipes bumped into a boulder in the dark environment, which soon began to bustle with movement.
"Geeo-GeoDUUUUDE!" erupted the boulder, which Bill soon realized to be a Geodude.
Soon, more boulders became animate around Bill and Swipes.
"Swipes! What have you done!" spoke Bill in a shocked manner while wildly pointing his flashlight around at the crowd of swaggering Geodude. The Geodude were pushing each other, trying to snatch at Bill and his Sentret with their sturdy arms.
"Sssssssssss..." rattled a creature on a ledge, visually hidden by the darkness.
All the Geodude slowed down their advance, and in a few moments they begun to halting their action and went a few feet away from Bill and Swipes, who were now hugging each other in pure desperation.
"H-Huh? Wh-What was that?" Bill pointed his flashlight at the hissing Pokemon. "A... A Dunsparce?"
"Sssspaaarrrccee!" Dunsparce's eyes began to glow deep red as it prepared to use Glare.
"Trett!!!" screamed Swipes.
Instead of using Glare at Swipes or Bill, Dunsparce used it on the flashlight.
The bulb in the flashlight soon begun glowing brighter and brighter, until it exploded. "Huh? What the-" started questioning Bill, who was soon interrupted by a rush of darkness and a mood of despair.
"Tret?" something nudged Swipes.
"Dunsssssss..." rumbled the Dunsparce.
"Tr-Tret!!" replied the Sentret.
"Tret!" understood Swipes.
Swipes tugged Bill really hard.
"Huh, you want me to follow you? I can't see..."
"Trrrret!" the tugging got ever more tough.
"Okay, okay fine!" grumbled Bill.
Bill was guided by his trusty Sentret, who miraculously in return was being guided by the Dunsparce for an unknown cause. Bill walked slowly through narrow passages in the cave, hearing the screeches of Zubat. Bill had never felt like this before, blinded by the darkness. His other senses sharpened, he begun to understand the true meaning of adventuring. He could feel the wet rocky walls, hear the splash of the puddles he walks into, smell the dead air of the dungeon.
Within half an hour since Bill approached the Dark Cave, Bill was seemingly guided back out.
"We're alive!" shouted Bill in joyful celebration.
"Sentre-tret!" replied Sentret.
"W-Wait... hold on a second... we aren't on Route 31 anymore..." Bill said motionlessly as he stared at a wooden bridge that connected to a village-like civilization lined with wooden huts.
"Dunsssss..." answered the Dunsparce as it fluttered with its gracious, tiny wings which were now visible to Bill outside of the cave. The Dunsparce floated serenely to a wooden sign nailed to a lifeless, splintered tree, by the bridge.
|A QUIET MOUNTAIN RETREAT|
"Sssssss..." the Dunsparce begun to flutter back to the cave entrance. Swipes understood what Dunsparce was, it was the Keeper of the Dark Cave, the caretaker of the cave's dominion and leader of the cave's Pokemon.
"N-No wait!" Bill chases Dunsparce into his previous exit.
"Ssss-sparce?" asked the Pokemon.
"Swipes! Use Scratch!" Bill understood the means of becoming a trainer now, he was going to catch that Dunsparce, and unlike his earlier failed attempt.. This time, Bill will think tactically.
"Tret!" Swipes first paused in confusion but in a quick moment it soon got Bill's plan. They were going to capture Dunsparce. Swipes launched its claws at the Dunsparce in a fury.
"Sssparcee!" Dunsparce suffered greatly from the wound that was spurred from the surprise attack that was inflicted onto its back. As Swipes continued scratching it, Dunsparce utilized its rough, rattle-like tail to furiously flail Sentret off of its wounded body. Dunsparce eyes began to glow a different red than previously seen by Bill. It then sprung onto Swipes, smacking the Sentret with a voracious Rage.
"Swipes, use Defense Curl!" ordered Bill.
Swipes quickly curled into a defensive position guarding its soft belly from the raging Dunsparce. The Dunsparce soon begun tiring itself out with the meaningless attacks at the Sentret's broad back, to the point where its delicate wings couldn't flutter no further.
As the Dunsparce began going down its path to downfall, Swipes jumped several feet into the air. The Sentret then hardened its belly and begun diving at the dying Pokemon, slamming it's torso with immense velocity.
As Furret collided onto the rocky ground, bits and pieces of gravel and dirt flew in multiple directions, blinding Bill's view for just several seconds. Once the cloud of rubble dispersed, Bill found Swipes planted into the ground and a round hole where the Dunsparce once was. Then all the sudden, a few meters away from Swipe's impact zone, Dunsparce's drill-like tail shot out of the ground. Dunsparce eyes began to grow red again, the rubble produced by the Sentret started levitating, Dunsparce was releasing its inner Ancient Powers.
"What the heck is this..." muttered Bill. Bill realized Swipes was in intense danger.
"Senn..Sen.." responded the implanted Sentret.
"Swipes! Get out of there!"
As the Sentret wriggled out of the floor in desperation, rocky shards flew threw the air in its direction. Swipes popped out of the ground, with only a few tufts of its fur scrapped off by the flying rubble. The Dunsparce then stumbled after using its remaining energy.
"Swipes! That was a close one, the Dunsparce is weak. Let's finish it off with Focus Punch!"
"Trettt!" The Sentret closed its eyes, stiffened its balance on its tail, and began concentrating to transfer all of its energy into its right fist.
Dunsparce leaped at Swipes as quick as possible, attempting to prevent it from using a mighty Focus Punch, but Bill rushed in the way intervene, blocking the Pokemon's attack with his chest. The impact against him was quite wimpish, proving Dunsparce was out of steam. Swipes finally prepared its devastating attack, launching its coin-sized fist at the Dunsparce's face, finally ready for capture.
It's time, Bill reminded himself in his mind. This is my only chance, Bill swiftly grabbed out his final unused Pokeball from his bag and launched it with his tingling muscles at the dazed and exhausted creature. I've done it.
The Pokeball slammed against the creature's forehead - only to reflect back into the air, opened up. Beamed out a lazer-like red that enveloped Dunsparce, the capsule sucked the Normal-Pokemon into itself. The Pokeball dropped onto the thousand-year old rocky outcroppings scattered around the entrance, where it tilted side-to-side as Dunsparce attempted to free itself with the little strength it still had harnessable. Bill could feel the air tremble as the ball shifted side to side. Side to side.
Swipes stopped breathing.
Curled into a ball.
Swipes body transforms. Its plump body elongated. Its long ears shrunk into pointy stems. Its tail merged together with its body. Its shape stretched out.
