    I had a story idea planned out once, but I never finished it. Instead of having the Gym Badges be a filler, they were, as NoirGrimoir stated, an excuse to journey. But they only started the journey. Eventually, the protagonist focused less on the Gym Badges (eventually deciding to stop striving for them), and more on defeating the antagonist, who was using the world's legendaries to shape the world the way they wanted. In the end, the protagonist got too much power, and Uxie had to give her amnesia to prevent her from abusing it.

    Anyway, my story purposely strayed from the initial goal set in the beginning parts, moving on to a new goal as the story progressed.

    But suppose you're not going for badges/ribbons, and therefore you don't need to train Pokemon?

    Actually, just the act of venturing outside of their hometown for any reason would give the protagonist reason to raise some Pokemon. At least, if you're still going with the "wild Pokemon jump out of the tall grass and you need your own Pokemon for protection" bit of game canon.

    The further you get from home, the more you need to diversify your team, due to more unusual Pokemon cropping up.

    honostly, a good obsticle, or detailed training, and by obstacle i mean a physical hardship, like climbing a mountain or something. It can give readers a better idea about the the protagonists personality

    Those are good ideas, but another thought just came to me--since the Pokemon anime builds encounters on the road around characters of the day (or NPCs), you could design a few COTDs and then build your encounters around them.
