Length: 5241 Characters
As the grey clouds in the sky raced to claim their cities, I sat on a chair on my front porch, gazing out into the forest. The forest was large, and tall. It stretched out to most of my city’s surroundings. My friends would dare each other (and myself) to walk through it; none of us would. There were rumors of a large, terrifying Pokémon that lived in cave. It would attack travelers and hikers that passed by. “But how could that be possible?” asked one of my friends, Alvin, who was not the brightest of the group in any way. “All Pokémon are sweet and kind!”
My father had gone into the forest once: to look for my Gastly whom I had lost in the night during a Lightening Storm. I thought I had lost him forever. My only Pokémon that I had ever had… lost. I blamed myself, and ran out into the forest carrying my backpack and Pokéballs.
As I walked through the forest, I glanced at all of the trees, wondering if my Gastly, Knight, had slept here during the weeks he had been missing. In the late evening I was still walking along the same path; my feet were blistering, and I was almost out of water. I stopped on a large, fallen tree to have my dinner. The Horizon flourished with the colors of fire and wind. After I had eaten, the sun's light was almost completely gone. It was getting dark, and late. I quickly ate the rest of my sandwich in two more bites, and refilled my water bottle in a nearby stream. Now the sky was completely dark, and I was feeling cold. I had packed another sweatshirt in my bag too, predicting that this would happen. I had also packed a sleeping bag and a lantern; I knew that I would have to sleep here for the night.
I slept on a rock that night…the wind flipped through my hair like pages of a book. The forest’s Pokémon were all chanting, but why in the night, though? I got up, and looked around. All of the tree Pokémon were sitting on their perches. All of them were looking down at the cave. There were two surprisingly bright lights at the front of the cave. I could recognize one as an Elekid, but the other was too large, and the light around it was too strong, making almost impossible to identify. The Elekid was knocked to the ground. It had several dark bruises on its head. The Elekid was picked up and thrown at the rocky side of the cave repeatedly. A cloud of gas was floating around the larger of the battle, using Confuse Ray on it, trying to keep it away from the defenseless Elekid. The larger Pokémon attacking the Elekid knocked the shadow aside with a bash. I couldn’t watch any longer; I had realized that the shadow was indeed Knight. I ran over to him.
Knight cried out in pain, hugging me. I returned him, hoping he would heal fast enough to battle the larger Pokémon. After I ran over to the Elekid, treating his wounds, the larger Pokémon’s body stopped glowing, but its arm stayed bright. It’s outline showed in the moonlight. With two, twin, black tails, yellow fur, and two, yellow antenna on its head, I knew what at was…at least, I thought so: an Electrivire. I quickly picked up the Elekid and dodged the Electrivire’s Thunder Punch. It yowled in pain, holding its badly bruised arm. The Elekid jumped out of my arms, suddenly. It jumped up, and used Focus Punch on the Electrivire. The Electrivire cried out in pain. It wheeled around, still holding its arm tightly, fighting its pain. The Elekid used Quick Attack to hit it from behind. The Electrivire swung its left arm around in an attempt to hit the Elekid away.
Finally, the Electrivire fell to the ground, unconscious. Elekid fainted a few feet away from exhaustion. I picked him up, and rushed him to a Pokémon Center…
I sat in the waiting room of the Pokémon Center; I had been there for almost two days. I met the Elekid’s trainer, but…he wasn’t that friendly.
“Oh, that wimp of a Pokémon? I threw him into the cave in the forest. Good riddance…” he said. I felt so bad for the poor Pokémon…and I wondered…how I many times had he battled? How bad were his injuries? And most important of all…had his trainer always been mistreating his Pokémon (or this Elekid especially)? All of these questions kept my mind busy during my long waiting…
The Elekid was wheeled out on a stretcher with his right arm and his left leg bandaged heavily. I asked the Nurse how he was doing, and she replied, “We’re not sure yet, but…he’ll be walking in maybe a…week or two.” I hoped it wouldn’t; this Elekid shouldn’t have to pay for his Trainer’s mistake. I kept him company in the room for as long as I could, until it was too late.
The next morning I was awoken by one of the Nurses. She rushed me to Elekid’s room, and showed me Elekid. He was limping around his room happily. I walked up to him, wondering if he would remember me. The Elekid tried to jump up onto my shoulder, but his leg was too weak to. I picked him up. He smiled, looking down to Knight’s Pokéball pleadingly. I gently set him down on his bed, and let Knight out of his Pokéball. Knight yawned, looking to the Elekid with surprise. They both smiled at each other, talking. Knight looked to me a few times, and still talked and talked.
After a while, Knight floated over to me. He pointed to Elekid, and took his battle stance. I smiled; “But Elekid doesn’t have a trainer, that’s the problem-.” Knight pointed to one of my spare Pokéballs in my backpack. My smile brightened. “Are you sure, Elekid?” Elekid nodded twice.
We finally found a courtyard outside our city; apparently Elekid had been here before. He raced toward his side of the field, full of energy.
I called out Knight, and stood back from the battle. Knight took his battle pose. I nodded to Elekid, signaling that he could have the first move.
Elekid charged his electricity, and used a powerful Thunder Bolt on Knight. Knight was thrown backward. He slowly got up, and threw a Shadow Ball at Elekid. Elekid dodged with Quick Attack, and hit Knight with another Thunder Bolt.
Knight got up again, and used Spite, taking all of Elekid’s Thunder Bolt’s PokéPower away. Knight then used Shadow Ball repeatedly, knocking Elekid to the ground instead.
Elekid was hit by all of them, but managed to summon the energy to get up. He used Fire Punch on Knight, but Knight disappeared and reappeared to dodge the attack.
Elekid was panting hard, so I thought I could catch it. I threw a Pokéball at it, and…
(Hopefully this isn't too terrible...)
