Trainer Strawberry: Chapter 15

“Alright, guys. As a special reward for all of your hard work at the Gym, you may all pick out one thing from this store that you want, and I’ll buy it for you,” I told my Pokemon as we stood at the entrance to a gift shop in Rustboro City. We had decided that it wouldn’t hurt to stay a few more days in the city before we moved on. After all, all work and no play isn’t fun for anyone. I told my Pokemon to meet me at the entrance in an hour; they agreed and set off to pick out what they wanted.

*Zip’s point of view*

Alright! Now’s my chance to get something cool. What should I get? A collar? An armband? A cape?! There’s so many cool things in here! How can I choose just one? Maybe I should ask Caso for some advice. He probably knows what the coolest thing in this store is! After all, he’d have to be pretty cool to already be a Marshtomp!

I rushed through the aisles looking for anything I thought was cool and trying to find Caso. While I was running around, I spotted something that made me stop in my tracks. There, sitting near the door, was a Plusle that appeared to have gotten into a fight that it couldn’t win. It had bruises all over it, and it looked sad. Another thing I noticed right off was that it was alone. Usually, Plusles hang out with Minuns, and the two Pokemon are never apart.

Maybe I should go ask what’s wrong, but, then I might not have enough time to pick something out. Well, if I was that Plusle, I’d want someone to ask me what was wrong.

I then ran over to see what had happened. The Plusle told me that it was attacked by a pack of Mightyenas, and that while it had escaped, its best friend wasn’t so lucky. I felt really sorry for the poor Pokemon. Suddenly, I knew exactly what I was going to get in the store.

*Scar’s point of view*

I didn’t really want anything from the store, so I just flew around, practicing my flying maneuvers. Then I spotted Zip running around the place like crazy. I figured he was probably trying to figure out what he wanted, so I didn’t pay much attention. Or at least, I didn’t pay much attention until Zip stopped suddenly. That was really unlike him. Things got even stranger when he bolted for the door. I decided to see what was going on, so I flew over to check it out.

When I reached the door, I saw what Zip had been so concerned about. It was a Plusle. The red-eared Pokemon was telling Zip something, but I couldn’t catch what it said.

But, you know, maybe I will get something at this store after all…

*Aqua’s point of view*

I walked through the aisles looking at all of the colorful things they had. Well, I wasn’t really looking, I was actually acting like I was looking while I was really thinking about ham sammiches. That’s when Zip ran by and nearly knocked me over. Which snapped me out of my train of thought.

Aw man. I was just thinking about this awesome ham sammich that was bigger than a skyscraper! Why did Zip have to snap me out of that? Suddenly I noticed Zip head for the door. I wonder what he’s doing? It isn’t time for Strawberry to pick us up yet. Next I saw Scar fly over to the door too. Alright, now I know something’s going on.

I headed over to see what was going on for myself. And after I did, I knew what I was going to get in the store.

*Later, when Strawberry came to pick the Pokemon up*

“Alright guys, did you all find something you like?” I asked my Pokemon as they gathered at the door to show me what they had picked out. Pepper had picked out a metal armband, Caso had picked out a collar with small spikes on it, Zip had picked out a small Minun plushie, Scar had picked out a basket of Oran berries, and Aqua had picked a basket of macarons.

After I had paid for the items my Pokemon had gotten, we left the store. Suddenly Zip, Scar, and Aqua stopped at the door.

“What’s the matter guys?” I asked as I approached my Pokemon. When I came closer, I noticed a Plusle sitting there. As I stared, not knowing what to think, Zip, Scar, and Aqua gave the items they had gotten to the poor thing. When the Plusle saw the items, its face brightened up immediately. Then it began to jump up and down in joy. I don’t think I had ever seen a Pokemon that was so happy. After thanking Zip, Scar, and Aqua for the gifts, the little electric Pokemon ran off. Words could not describe how proud I was of my Pokemon, and I told them that. Then we headed to the Pokemon Center to rest up for our journey the next day.

What’s this?! A new chapter of Trainer Strawberry?! Is this a dream? No, no it isn’t. This is really happening. And I have plans for that Plusle. Mwa ha ha.

Trainer Strawberry: Chapter 13

“Okay, guys! Give it all you’ve got!” I shouted as my Pokemon trained. We had recently defeated the Gym Trainer in the Rustboro City Gym, but I had decided we needed to do some training before we took on the Gym Leader, Roxanne.

Suddenly, a Pokemon that looked like a bird showed up. My Pokedex told me it was a Taillow, a Flying- and Normal-Type.

“Oh, wow, a new Pokemon! Let’s catch it! Go, Zip!” I was always excited to catch a new Pokemon.

“Zigzagoon!” Zip ran forward at my request. The Taillow prepared to battle as well. When the Taillow turned towards us, I realized that it had a scar on its right eye.

“Taillow!” It shouted as it charged at Zip.

“So, it’s using ‘Quick Attack’,” I said mostly to myself. “Zip, dodge it and use ‘Headbutt’!”

“Zigzagoon!” Zip easily moved to the side to dodge the Taillow’s attack. Then, right as he and the Taillow were side by side, he jumped up quicker than most people would have thought possible. He hit the Taillow, and sent it flying into a tree nearby.

“Now’s my chance!” I shouted as I threw a Pokeball at the Taillow. It shook three times, then it clicked. “Gotcha! Taillow was caught!” I exclaimed happily. All of my Pokemon, except Caso, jumped up in down in happiness. They were all glad to have a new friend. “Now, he just needs a name. Come on out, Taillow!” I threw the Pokeball containing my newly caught Pokemon. When he emerged, I walked around him a little, examining him to try to figure out a good name. “How’s about… Blackfeather?”

“Taillow, Taillow.” The bird Pokemon shook its head. He didn’t like that name. He then tried his best to point at his eye.

“Oh, I get it. You want to be called Scar, right?”

“Taillow, Taillow.” Scar nodded his head. I was a little surprised that he would like that name. I thought Pokemon didn’t like their scars being pointed out, but I guess I was wrong.

“Alright then. Let’s get back to training!” All of my Pokemon happily agreed. Even Caso agreed, not happily, but he agreed.

*Later*

Our training had been going great, when suddenly, we heard a rushing sound, like a bunch of wings flapping at one time. Soon after the sound started, we spotted the source. It was at least twenty Taillows, and they looked angry.

“Whoa! That’s a lot of Taillows!” I yelled in surprise. “What do you guys think they want?” I asked nervously while I turned to my Pokemon to see if they had any ideas. When I looked at them, I realized they were looking at me, waiting for me to tell them the answer. All of them except Scar, who was looking at the other Taillows with a slight hint of anger. Scar and the other Taillows were talking to each other about something. That’s when I realized, Scar had probably been kicked out of this flock of Taillows, so they were probably mad that he hadn’t left the area yet. I couldn’t help being angry at that realization. No one, and I mean no one, picks on my Pokemon. I don’t care if they’re Pokemon as well, I will not tolerate it. “Alright, guys! It looks like these Taillows want a fight, so let’s give them one they’ll never forget!” My Pokemon roared in agreement.

The battle began, with both sides giving it their all. We were vastly outnumbered, but that didn’t stop us. We were ready for them, I don’t know how, but we were. As we fought with the flock of Taillows, I felt my Pokemon and I getting closer. It was an experience I had never felt before-it was like my Pokemon and I were thinking the exact same thing. I knew exactly when my Pokemon would dodge and how they would retaliate. It was like we were in perfect sync.

So, this is what it really means to be a Pokemon Trainer.

Sometime during the battle, my Pokemon began using moves they had never used before. Pepper was using “Bite”, and Aqua was using “Rollout”. It was a long battle, but we came out on top. Suddenly, Caso began to glow a bright white. Even though he was glowing brightly, I could see he was changing shape. Just as suddenly as it began, Caso stopped glowing, but he wasn’t a Mudkip anymore.

“Marshtomp!” Caso called when he stopped glowing. His appearance had changed quite a bit. He was slightly taller, and he stood on his hind legs. The three orange spikes on the sides of his face were now one single spike. He had two fins on his back, and both his back fins and his head fins turned into a grayish color. And his underbelly was now orange.

“Wow, Caso! You’re a Marshtomp now!” I said excitedly with my Pokedex in my hand. I had to check, okay. Caso stared at me for a moment, then he used “Water Gun” to hit me in the face. I sputtered for a minute before angrily yelling “Caso!”, the rest of my Pokemon just laughed. I stared angrily at Caso for a few seconds, then I sighed and started laughing too. After all, that was just his way of teasing me, so maybe it was a good thing.

Well, at least now I know that Caso’s still Caso, even if he looks a little different.

Pokemon met this chapter: Scar, male, lax nature

Info. Once again, sorry for the wait. I hope this chapter was good enough to make up for it. Anyway, quite a bit happens in this chapter. Catching a new Pokemon, Caso becoming a Marshtomp. By the way, did you guys know I have a page that keeps track of the little details like which Pokemon are on my team, and what attack they know? Well, I do. The link to it is here.
