The First Adventure

“Growlithe! Use Ember!” Jun shouted, and Growlithe followed by shooting small flames at the Rattata, the opponent’s pokémon. “Rattata! Tackle, now!” Jun heard the other boy shout and he quickly yelled at Growlithe to watch out. Rattata missed. “Bite him!” Jun shouted, and so Growlithe did, and bit hard. Once it released the foe, Rattata fainted. Jun smiled; his first victory!

He had barely slept last night. Once he had stepped into the road, Route 30, he had been walking as quickly as he could, deeper into the forest. He hadn’t wanted to be immediately found and caught by his father (the paranoia of him chasing Jun somehow haunted him), and the fear of the dark had kept him moving quickly into the forest. Once he had gotten too tired to walk, he had settled down by a tree and gotten into his sleeping bag. Growlithe had stayed by his side, close to his head, but he had still felt very uneasy, and had been unable to get much sleep like his pokémon had.

When he had gotten up early in the morning, when the sun had risen, he had eaten some bread, shared some with Growlithe, before moving on, still paranoid his father would come after him. Growlithe had protested only a little before loyally following his master. After walking for a while and the sun had risen higher in the sky, they had come across this youngster-trainer (probably younger than Jun) who had challenged him for a battle.

“Aaah! Your Growlithe is too strong! I lost!” the other boy exclaimed. Jun only smiled, proud of his own pokémon. Growlithe seemed to be glowing as well, winning its first real battle. The pokémon smiled even more when Jun crouched down and petted him. “You did well,” he praised Growlithe who only barked in response.

The other boy approached him again. “Here,” he said, holding out some money. “This is your price.”

“Thank you,” Jun said as he took the money. “You did put up a good fight, though. I’m glad I had my first fight with you.”

“This was your first pokémon battle? Aaah, lucky you who won it! I lost when I had my first battle, and now I lost again. I guess I have to train harder,” the other boy said.

“Well, good luck with that. I have to go now. I’m kind of in a hurry,” Jun said got up and picked up his temporarily forgotten bag.

“Are you on your way to Violet City? To challenge the Gym, I mean?” the boy suddenly asked, very interested.

“Yes, I actually am. I’m doing the Johto League challenge,” Jun said, smiling politely to this curious boy.

“Aaah, lucky! I wish I could do that, but my parents won’t let me,” the boy said, and Jun could only bitterly think of all the fights he had with his father. “But I’m sure you will do great! I will cheer for you and then maybe one day we can meet and battle again when I have gotten strong enough to beat you!”

“Hah! I’d like to see that!” Jun laughed. “Well, I guess I’ll see you around then!”

“Yeah! Bye!”

And then Jun had been off again. Both he and his Growlithe happy and proud of their first successful battle. Though, Jun hadn’t earned much from that boy (he was just a kid, after all), it was still the first ever money he had earned through battling. It was so exciting and it made him proud even if he had to leave behind and sacrifice his relationship with his parents for it. It was the first step of his dream, and he couldn’t wait to get to the rest of it!

But first he had to get up the hill that made Route 30, and though it was not really steep, it was very long. Soon Jun found himself panting alongside his Growlithe, but they continued until the sun was at its highest and they took a lunch break. Jun made some healthy small bowls of berries he had picked on his way and gave them to both his Growlithe and Magikarp. Though, he quickly returned his fish-pokémon to its pokéball due to the lack of any river or lake.

Soon enough Jun was walking up the hill once again. Step by step he got closer and closer towards the top, he could see it. Before that, though, he had fought another trainer. This time he had used Magikarp, but he had barely got away with it. The Magikarp tried to splash away from the foe’s moves before tackling it. It worked out in the end, but not as smoothly as with Growlithe. “Guess, I’ll just have to train him a little harder,” Jun thought, before thinking that he definitely had to bring his Magikarp to a Pokémon Centre.

Jun reached the top of the hill. He turned and looked behind him again, and sure enough; it was a long way down. Far, far away he could see his hometown from behind some trees, but Jun knew that the neighbouring town was only less than a day’s walk away, and if his father actually decided he would chase after him, he would have to get away from that neighbouring town. Surely his father wouldn’t follow after him further. “We need to hurry, Growlithe,” Jun said. Growlithe barked.

They continued walking with a minimum of breaks. They stopped by the entrance of a cave that the map stated was Dark Cave, but they didn’t enter because it simply was a very dark cave. They would need a pokémon that knew the move Flash with them, and Jun did not have that. Besides; entering Dark Cave was out of the question as it led away from his destination, Violet City.

But it seemed like since they had reached Dark Cave before dinner time, it meant he was ahead of schedule. Or maybe he had just unconsciously walked a lot quicker due to his constant worry. That was probably the case. He had often walked this road when he was younger due to his father’s former station had been in Violet City. That reminded him (like he had thought of countless times already) that he would most likely meet a lot of people in Violet City who recognized him. Or maybe not since it had been a long time ago, and he had grown up. Still, he knew old people tended to remember. He’d just have to be polite and lie a smile.

It didn’t actually take long before he could spot Violet City’s entrance. The sun was still above the horizon, but it was hanging low and was closer to become evening. Jun entered the city and was met with many buildings built in a traditional style. The ground was not of bricks or asphalt, but of fine rocks, and even the Pokémon Centre was specially built in the traditional style the city bore.

Jun made his way towards the centre with the intention of getting his pokémon treated. Especially his Magikarp who’d taken quite the beating earlier. He also thought of maybe asking for a bed to stay in for the night, since he didn’t really know anyone in this town. He hadn’t been there since childhood, after all, which only meant that there would be more people recognizing him than who Jun actually could remember meeting.

So Jun entered the Pokémon Centre with determination, keeping his gaze on the floor or the front desk. He walked up to a nurse at the front desk while pulling out his pokéball with his Magikarp. “Excuse me, could you please treat my pokémon? They have been through a couple of battles, and they could use some treatment,” Jun said lowly. To be honest, he was a bit nervous. He hadn’t really done that before (besides when his Growlithe unfortunately was once pecked on by a couple of Pidgeys when he was younger), and he didn’t want to sound stupid or anything.

Yet the nurse only smiled at him. “Sure! Just show me your pokémon!” he said sweetly.

Soon enough Magikarp and Growlithe were both up at the counter getting examined by Nurse Kai (who at first forgot to introduce himself and also seemed to owe one of those 1000 watt smiles). Nurse Kai studied Growlithe’s paws and checked underneath Magikarp’s fins along with some more quick observations before he turned toward Jun again. He smiled sweetly. “Your pokémon are quite ok. I’ll just take them to the backroom and get them some medicine. You can wait over there by the bench if you want,” he said directing Jun towards the waiting area.

He sat down on the same bench as some other guy his age. His hair was kind of sandy brown and he was simply wearing a white t-shirt with some ripped up jeans. His elbows were on his knees while his hands were clasped together. He seemed kind of troubled.

The guy hadn’t really taken notice of Jun’s presence at all.

Jun waited in silence. He read some magazine about good pokémon food, and he thought he would try some of it out once he managed to get some red and blue apricorns somewhere. He was sure his pokémon would love it, and it was healthy with proteins and carbs. Jun had read a bit about pokémon food, but he had really studied more about the different types of pokémon rather than what they should eat. He’d have to get a book about food.

After 30 minutes or so Nurse Kai returned with a smile and a trolley carrying two pokéballs and Growlithe who was happily sitting on it. “Here are your pokémon, Matsumoto-san!” Nurse Kai smiled and handed Jun a pokéball and his Growlithe. Growlithe barked happily and licked its master’s face, happy to see him again. “Thank you, Nurse Kai,” Jun smiled at his affectionate Growlithe.

“No problem! I am always happy to help a trainer in need, but it is wise to carry some potions or Oran berries while in the wilderness in case of an emergency,” Nurse Kai told him.

“Thank you. I’ll remember that,” Jun said.

The nurse turned to the other guy and spoke to him; “Aiba-chan? Your Bellsprout is now completely healed as well.”

The other guy called ‘Aiba-chan’ looked up before his face broke into an expression of relief. He rose up as he spoke; “Thank god! I wouldn’t know what to do if it weren’t for you Kai-kun!”

“I’m just doing my job,” Nurse Kai smiled before he handed the other pokéball to the other guy.

“You’re still the best!” ‘Aiba-chan’ exclaimed as he grabbed his pokéball.

Nurse Kai then turned to both of them before bowing politely (despite his obviously a friend being one of them). He then spoke; “Well, I have to go now and check on some other pokémon.”

Jun then quickly spoke; “Ah! One more thing Nurse Kai, if you don’t mind.”

Nurse Kai smiled brightly; “No, of course I don’t mind.”

“I was wondering if you had a bed for the night. I could use a place to stay,” Jun said, while trying not to sound so damn shy, but confident as if he was any other trainer passing by.

But Nurse Kai smiled sadly at this. “I’m sorry, but we don’t have any vacancy tonight. Suddenly a group of trainers came today and have occupied all the beds. I’m also going to observe some of their pokémon for the night,” Nurse Kai explained.

Jun nodded, slightly disappointed. “Ah, I understand. Well, never mind then.”

“You can stay at my place!”

Jun turned in surprise at the other guy who was now smiling at him. His smile baffled Jun so much he somehow forgot proper words; “Eh?”

“You can stay at my place!” the guy said again. “Ah! My name is Aiba Masaki, but you can call me Aiba-chan. My parents own a house and you can probably stay there for the night. You’re a trainer, aren’t you? That’s so cool!”

Aiba was interrupted by Nurse Kai who smacked the enthusiastic guy’s rant. “Let the other speak!”

Aiba apologized quickly, making only Jun smile and laugh a bit nervously; “Eh, I’m Matsumoto Jun. It’s nice to meet you.”

“Nice to meet you too! But if you really need to stay somewhere, you can stay at my place,” Aiba continued to speak.

“Ah, I wouldn’t want to impose,” Jun hesitantly spoke. His Growlithe only snuggled closer to him in his arms.

“Oh, you wouldn’t impose! We like guests!” Aiba smiled before petting Growlithe. “And we also like pokémon! I know my mum would like to pet a Growlithe.”

Growlithe barked happily at being paid attention to. Jun just remained quiet, looking at his pokémon getting petted happily. Aiba seemed like a nice person; even Growlithe seemed to like him. Surely it couldn’t hurt..?

“Aiba-chan’s family are really the greatest, and I think it’s a good idea. I heard it’s going to rain tonight,” Nurse Kai shot in.

Aiba smiled a wide smile. “Great! Let’s go!” he said before grabbing Jun’s arm and guiding him through the city towards the house Aiba called home.

Author's Notes:
Well, that's the first chapter. I don't know, I feel like it's awkward writing this. Oh well. I'm having fun!
I have a feeling this story is probably going to not be finished. Especially if no one cares about it x)
I'm trying to make this story's pace quicker, but it's not really my style. Oh well.
Also; I'm not really thinking of paste in pictures of the Pokémon I mention. Nor am I really thinking of describing them more than what kind of an animal they could be. So, if you're not familiar with your Pokémon, then you're a bit fucked?

I've tried to imagine what pokémon each of the members would have... I hope I did it right x)

I am trying to somewhat follow the games, but obviously its going to be different plot-wise and such; especially considering the legendary pokémons. I'm a bit nervous when it finally gets down to Gym battles and such... How do you write such scenes?

Thanks for reading and commenting :>

Since you don't know much about pokémon, it might be a bit difficult to follow... I don't know how you experienced it with how I presented the pokémon so far..? o.o'
Hope you can keep up!
