Pokemon: Coronis Adventures
Chapter 2: First Steps
Outside Route 24
Nidhogg: Drei! *lands at the entrance of Ville Town*
Eric: *comes off Nidhogg’s back* Thanks Niddy, have a good trip back.
Nidhogg: *Happy* Drei! *flies off*
Eric: *Sighs* Well time to go in. *enters the Town Entrance*
Inside Town Gate
Guard: Hello there, first time visiting?
Eric: Yep, I’m going to the Gym!
Guard: Wow, is this your first gym battle.
Eric: Uh huh!
Guard: Well then just make sure you register at the Pokemon Center, okay?
Eric: Okay, bye!
Ville Town; a small town of big dreams.
A Skiddo runs by
???: Get back here!
A teenage girl goes past
Eric: That was weird.
*Alice comes out of her Pokeball*
Alice: *shakes her fur* Vee!
Alice: *Runs after the girl and Skiddo*
Eric: Alice! *Runs after her*
Ville Town Fields
???: Gotcha! *catches the Skiddo
???: Well hey there, where did you come from.
Alice: *Runs back to Eric* Vee! *jumps into his arms*
Eric: Alice, don’t go running off like that.
???: She looks recently hatched, and a shiny no doubt, you’re a lucky, little guy.
Eric: She was a present for my journey. I’m Eric.
Sonia: I’m Sonia, I run these fields with my brother George.
Eric: Really, you guys run these big fields?!
Sonia: Us and our Pokemon of course.
A Stoutland barks in the distance.
Sonia: Bernie?! Somethings up with him, excuse me. *she leaves towards the barking*
Eric: *Puts Alice back down* We should go look into it too.
They both run in the same direction of Sonia.
???: Whoa, relax! Maximus, I’ll get you your food, you just need to stop eating the supply for the town.
Maximus: (Snorlax) SNOOR! *Eating much of the crops*
???: Alright then, Markus, come out! *Opens a Pokeball*
*A Watchog comes out of the ball*
???: Markus, use Hypnosis!
Markus: WATCH! *Strange waves come from his eyes*
Maximus: Snoor… *Falls over and sleeps*
???: *Sighs* Thanks Markus, return. *Recalls Markus*
Sonia: *Runs in* Is everything alright George?
George: Yeah, no problem, Maximus just woke up hungry. I used Markus to put him back to sleep.
Sonia: I see; looks like he tore through the food supply.
George: Yeah, I guess he was hungry. Return! *Recalls Maximus*
Sonia: He’s been causing a lot of trouble lately, maybe we should send him to Grandpa, there’s plenty of food in the mountains.
George: Yeah, maybe, so who’s the kid?
Sonia: Huh? Oh Eric, did you follow me?
Eric: Yeah, we wanted to see what was going on.
George: Wow, a shiny Eevee, I’ve never seen a shiny before.
Eric: You’re really cool, the way you took care of that Snorlax was awesome.
George: It was nothing; taking care of strong Pokemon is my skill, after all I’m Ville Town’s Gym Leader.
Eric: Whoa, you’re the Gym Leader?
George: Are you a prospective challenger?
Eric: Yep, I just have to register at the Pokemon Center.
George: Well you be sure to do so, I’ll be in the Gym later today.
Eric: Alright, nice meeting you, *He walks away with Alice following him*
George: He seems like a nice kid, but he’s going to have to learn that he has to train.
Sofia: Just don’t crush him brother.
George: No promises.
Ville Town Nurse Joy: Welcome to the Pokemon Center, how may I help you sir?
Eric: I would like to enter myself into the Pokemon League.
Ville Town Nurse Joy: No problem, upon entry you will receive your PokeDex, Trainer ID, and Badge Case. We just need you to do some paperwork; you can sign the paperwork in the lounge over there. *Gives Eric a folder with paperwork and a pen*
Eric: Thank you… *Walks to the lounge*
Eric: *Sighs* Paperwork sucks…
Youngster: *running in* Nurse Joy!
Ville Town Nurse Joy: Oh my, did you fight against George.
Youngster: *Sullenly* Yes…
Ville Town Nurse Joy: Alright, just give me your Pokémon and I’ll get them to heal.
Cowgirl: He probably got stomped by that Tauros, poor idiot.
Breeder: That Tauros is seriously fast.
Eric: *Sweating* *thinking* Oh boy, maybe we should think about doing some training… *Finishes the paperwork* *Gets up and brings it to Nurse Joy*
Ville Town Nurse Joy: All done?
Eric: Yep, just wondering, where is it that I can train my Pokemon?
Ville Town Nurse Joy: Well it should take about a half hour for the authorization to come in, so you could do some training on Route 25 to the north of town.
Eric: Route 25? Thanks. *leaves the Pokemon Center*
Eric: Alright, what’s the pokemon that live around here?
Eric: What’s that? *Opens his bag* What’s this?
Eric: *Takes out a C-Gear* Oh cool, it’s like the C-Gear Mom and Dad wears. *Puts it on and taps the screen*
Welcome to C-Gear X… Receiving a call from Mother
The C-Gear X opens revealing a second screen and they activate showing Marissa and Eric.
Marissa: Hey there, I see you got to Ville Town okay.
Eric: Yeah, did Nidhogg get back okay?
Marissa: Yep, Niddy came back okay. So I guess I should tell you how the C-Gear X works, well it’s pretty much like a normal C-Gear, but I had a friend in Devon Corp. look at it so he could upgrade it with a few aps like the PokeNav Plus has. Just tap the second screen.
Eric: Alright. *Taps the second Screen*
The screen changes and shows a menu of options.
Marissa: Okay, looking at the memo he gave me. *Flips a paper* Okay so there’s the DexNav, which allows you to see what Pokemon are in a location, and a Locater which emits a Pokemon Cry to be able to attract the specific Pokemon that you called, you just have to catch the Pokemon first. Next is the AreaNav, which is a map for the region, that’s pretty simple, but it does show people who you have registered on your C-Gear. The last thing is the BuzzNav which is the news from around the region. That should be it. Did you get all that?
Eric: Yep, I think so.
Marissa: Well I’ll let you get back to what it was you were doing, have fun.
Eric: Kay Mom.
Eric: Alright, let’s see what we can do guys. *Opens both Pokeballs*
Niko: *Yawns* Doooour!
Alice: Vee Vee!
Eric: Let’s find some pokemon so we can train guys.
Youngster: *Sees Eric* Hey you were at the Pokemon Center, right?
Eric: Yep, I heard you went to the gym and lost.
Youngster: Yeah, I didn’t think that the Tauros would be so powerful.
Eric: What are his pokemon?
Youngster: The first one is a Glameow and of course the Tauros, though that’s just his low level team.
Eric: I see, um do you want to have a pokemon battle.
Youngster: I guess it can’t hurt, but I won’t go easy.
Youngster Joey challenges you to a battle.
Eric: Alice, let’s do this.
Youngster: Alright, let’s go! *Opens a pokeball and a Rattata comes out*
Youngster: There’s no way you’ll beat my Rattata, he’s the top percentage of Rattatas!
Eric: Uh-huh. Let’s start this, Alice, Tackle!
Alice: VEE! *Charges and tackles the Rattata*
Rattata: TATA! *Pushed back*
Youngster: Rattata, Quick Attack!
Rattata: TATA! *Disappears and reappears rapidly and tackles Alice*
Alice: Vee! *knocked backwards*
Eric: Alice, return, I guess it’ll take a little heat to finish this, Niko!
Niko: DOUR! *his mouth erupts in flames*
C-Gear: Niko’s Known moves: Leer, Ember. Egg Move: Fire Fang.
Eric: Awesome! Niko, let’s start with Ember, short bursts five seconds in between!
Niko: *Nods his head and starts firing bursts embers*
Youngster: Whoa! Ratatta dodge them!
Eric: Aim upwards! Bursts with two seconds in between!
Niko: *Starts firing above the field rapidly*
Eric: Enough, fall back and wait.
Niko: *Stops firing and jumps backwards.* Dou!
Youngster: What was that about, did you decide to give up!
Eric: Look up.
Youngster: What? *Looks up*
The embers start crashing back down slamming onto Ratatta.
A cloud of dust and smoke clears
Ratatta: Tatta… *collapses and faints*
Eric: Awesome, we did it Niko!
Trainer Eric defeated Youngster Joey.
Youngster: Oh… I’m out of Pokémon that can fight.
Eric got 64 PokéDollars for winning!
Eric: Awesome, let’s keep going Niko!
Youngster: Wow you were amazing, I’ve never seen moves like that!
Eric: Thanks for the battle, it was great practice.
Youngster: You sure you need to practice, you seem more than ready for a fight with George.
Eric: Yeah, but I do think that I should get one more pokemon before facing him.
*Pebble hits Eric in the head*
Eric: Ow! What hit me?
Murkrow: Kro Kro Kro!
Eric: Laughing at me huh, fine I wanted a Murkrow like dad has. Niko prepare for battle!
Murkrow: KROW! *Starts flapping its wings and glides to the ground, flapping a foot off the ground*
Eric: Want to fight, huh! Nico, use howl!
Niko’s attack is raised.
Murkrow: Krow! *Flies to Niko and pecks him on the head*
Eric: Now while it’s close, Fire Fang!
Niko: DOUR! *Fangs ignite and bites Murkrow’s wings*
Murkrow: KROW! *Catches on fire*
Eric: Yeah, we did it!
Youngster: Look he’s trying to get away!
Murkrow: *Starts trying to fly away, low to the ground*
Eric: Niko, Pursuit!
Niko: Dou! *Charges and comes to Murkrow’s front*
Eric: Stop, go Pokeball! *Tosses a pokeball at Murkrow*
Murkrow turns red as it becomes energy entering the ball.
Eric: Alright! I caught a Murkrow!
Youngster: So what are you going to name him?
Paradigm City: 21st Precinct: Chief Detective Allan Edgar’s office
RRRIIING! RRRIIING! RRRIIING!
Allan: *Picks up Xtransceiver* Hey Eric, I heard you made it to Ville Town.
Eric: Yeah I did, I met the Gym Leader, I’m going to face him later. *Murkrow lands on his head*
Allan: Oh, who’s this one?
Eric: Oh, I caught him about 5 minutes ago, he kinda reminds me of Poe.
Allan: Oh, so what did you name him?
Eric: I’m calling him Corvus.
Allan: Well congratulations to your first capture. Well I wish you luck on your gym leader battle, George is a tough guy.
Eric: Thanks dad!
Allan: Kay kiddo. *Hangs up* So how long have you been standing there, Inspector Looker.
*Looker standing at the doorway*
