Note, will ruin the ending.
[My first story. So go easy on me graders!]
Clouds spit rain heavily down onto the young trainer as he maneuvered his way through yet another route. The gray skies reflected his mood. In stark contrast however, his partner Pokemon Solosis whistled, or what seems to be whistling, quite contently behind him.
Wearing his trademark green and black cap pulled tightly over his tufty hair, the boy trudged on, taking care not to get his new clothes too dirty. The boy had taken a liking to his rather stylish jet black waistcoat, which he chose to wear over the top of his emerald green tee shirt. On his bottom half he wore a pair of grey, faded jeans, the bottom of which tinged brown with mud. His normally black trainers, now too are coloured brown with the ever sticky mud.
His partner, not perturbed, followed ever content with life, lacking a speck of mud on it’s blob like physiology due to its ability to levitate when desired. It’s green outer layer reflected the water pellets away from the main “nucleus” inside. The small, almost cute, face was rounded and a lighter shade of green than its protective bubble. What seemed to be a small spiral sat on the side on the Pokemon’s “head”, thus completing the look.
Darker clouds rolled over the pair as they reached an opening in the forest that had been traversing. Looking behind him, the trainer saw row upon row of foliage stretching back as far as his eyes could see, he turned to face forward as it dawned on him how far he had travelled in only a few hours. Taking a further interest in his new surroundings, he took in what he could see around him. The circular clearing was edged with thick, lustrous tall grass, which the young boy guessed housed many different species of Pokemon. The clearing itself however, was void of the green stuff. In fact, it was just dirt, wet due to the now even heavier rainfall leaving it a rather unattractive tone of brown, not unlike the shade still residing on the trainer’s footwear.
In the near distance, running water could be heard, but not seen. The youth could determine the direction from which the sound was coming, so chose to follow his ears and find the stream in question.
After a brisk sprint, the boy finds himself at the streams edge, however due the heavy rain, said stream had burst it banks and was flooding the nearby wildlife. Solosis caught up with its impatient trainer, and immediately tensed as it sensed the form of another Pokemon instinctively.
Curious as to what was agitating his new friend, he ordered a Psychic attack to be performed on the stream-now-river, to flush out and attackers that may have tried to ambush the pair if they’d gotten any closer. The small green blob vibrated violently for a few seconds before casting off a purple beam of aura into the water. A flailing red shape was flung from the water before landing upstream. Eager to determine what he’d just attacked, the trainer quickly but cautiously made his way towards the flailing fish, this time taking note to allow time for his partner to catch up.
Upon reaching the fish Pokemon, the trainer immediately took in any details visible at the time. He noted it as a reddish-orange, medium-sized fish. Other notable characteristics he picked up were how the Pokemon seemed to have rather large and heavy scales. Its fins were primarily white, but it also had two stiff, three-peaked fins on its back and stomach which were both a striking tone of yellow. The young trainer also took in the fish Pokemon’s tanned barbels, and how the Pokemon was using them not only to help propel itself towards him, but also to take in its new surroundings and details about the pair it was about to face.
Seemingly, the Pokemon had not been damaged by the Psychic attack that had been fired at it earlier. The trainer deduced that the Pokemon must’ve dodged the attack, but still been propelled from the water by the force it caused.
Suddenly, the Pokemon attacked! It threw it’s lean body high in to the air and the forcefully threw itself to the Earth, creating a monstrous splash, soaking both the pair in muddy water. No damage was inflicted, but still the pair weren’t amused.
The trainer issued his command, and the battle truly began; “Solosis, use Psychic!” He pointed emphatically towards the flailing fish before adding, “Try not to miss this time!”
Taking the command with a pinch of salt, the small Psychic Pokemon shuddered vigorously a second time. It let loose another beam of purple energy, directly towards the medium-sized fish, and this time the attack landed. The fish was launched a decent 20 feet aerially before landing with a satisfying thud on the wet Earth. After pausing to take in the Magikarp’s rather graceless landing, the trainer issued another attack, “Again Solosis!” He paused for breath, before continuing, “One more Psychic attack should be enough!”
Acting on its master’s orders, the green blob fired off the third and final beam of purple energy, aiming to knock the Magikarp up into the air and stranded away from its homefield advantage of the stream.
The attack connected, and the fish flew high into the air, just as the small blob had hoped. Barely conscious, the flying Magikarp made no attempt to dodge the medium-sized red topped capsule as it connected with its forehead. The Pokemon flashed a bright red and was sucked into said capsule. With a loud squelch, the capsule landed in the muddy wetland.
The pair crossed their fingers as the ball wobbled once.
