Pokemon406: Hello everyone! I'm back with a new story!
Hikari: The Eevee of victory is here!
Pokemon406: I got inspired to do this story because of Protoman 0's story "MY Pokemon Journey?". It's an interesting story, but unfortunately it seems like he(or she) abandoned it because the story hasn't been updated in forever.
Pokemon406: This story will also be told in first person and a self insert so if you don't like that then don't read.
Pokemon406: Here's the disclaimer.
Disclaimer: I do not own Pokemon but I do own my OCs and myself of course.
One day, I was sitting at my computer desk, staring at the computer. I was trying to think of an idea for my next story, but for the life of me I couldn't think of anything.
I sighed and decided to play some Pokemon Let's Go on the Nintendo Switch. My version was Eevee, but don't think that means I like Pikachu any less.
I turned on the console and clicked on the game. I watched as the game booted up and Eevee ran across the screen. However, I raised an eyebrow, when it seemed like Eevee was looking right at me and winked.
"Hmm must be an update,"I said and pressed the A button.
I saw my character holding Eevee and next to him was all eight gym leaders. I pressed the A button again and expected to see my character appear in Pallet Town, but instead the screen began glowing.
"What the! What's happening to my-"I stopped talking as the light shined brighter and enveloped my room.
When the light faded, I was gone and my switch stayed in the air for a second before landing on my desk with the screen being black.
"Ugh, what happened?"I mumbled to myself from my position on the floor. I opened my eyes and sat up to find myself in a room that wasn't my own."What the? Whose room is this?"
I looked at the things in the room. A medium sized bed, a desk and computer, Pikachu clock on the wall, a window that showed it was daytime outside, flat screen TV, and Nintendo Switch.
I looked at my reflection in the TV and was shocked to see that I was ten years old again. Not only that but I was wearing different clothes. I now wore a gray jacket with a hood, black shirt, blue pants with a black belt, black fingerless gloves, and black shoes.
"What! You gonna be kidding!"I said walking over to make sure it was my reflection and it was my mind playing tricks on me.
After a few gestures, I figured out it was indeed my reflection. I then pinched myself to see if I was dreaming only to flinch in pain.
"Okay, so this isn't a dream,"I said then walked over to the window and was shocked at what I found.
I was in Pallet Town, home to famous characters like Ash Ketchum, Gary Oak, Red, Blue, Green, and Professor Samuel Oak.
"I...can't believe it!"I muttered in amazement and would have pinched myself if I hadn't already."How is this possible? I was home until..a played Pokemon Let's Go Eevee! Could that have brought me here?"
It was unlikely, but I started playing that before suddenly waking in...I guessed was Red or Ash's room, but then again neither boys had a Nintendo Switch so I could be wrong.
"Alright, I have two opinions. Either stay here and play some Nintendo Switch or go outside and head to Professor Oak to see if he has a pokemon to give me."I said to myself.
The choice was pretty obvious. I would stay inside and play some Nintendo Switch. Hopefully, there were some good video games in this room….I'm kidding! I immediately went downstairs and out the door to Professor Oak's lab.
As I ran through the town, I couldn't help but notice it looked like the anime Pallet Town rather than the video game one.
"Huh? strange,"I muttered. Maybe I was in the Pokemon anime instead of the game. If that's the case then I would have to put up with Ash and other characters from the anime.
I made it to the Professor lab. I walked in and around until I found the old man working in front of a computer. I coughed loudly making him jump. He turned around and saw me.
"Oh, it's just you Shizuko my boy. You're early none of the others are here yet."He said to me causing me to raise an eyebrow in confusion.
Shizuko? That was the name of one of my characters, but the name I used for this game was a different name. And why was he speaking to me like he has known me for a while? Maybe if this was the game he would understand because it was the playable character, but this seemed more like the anime. I mentally shrugged and decided to roll with this.
I asked him for a pokemon and he brought me over to where the starter pokemon were. It looked like it did from the anime.
"Well, which pokemon do you want Shizuko? There's-"I tuned him out and decided to think about which pokemon I wanted as my starter.
"If this is like the anime then Ash's Pikachu must be here. I could have him as my starter while Ash gets Charmander or whoever,"I thought then shook my head."Nah! I don't really want a rebellious Pikachu. I prefer one of the tamed starters they're much easier to train and could be better than Ash's Pikachu."
"Oak I know who I want,"I said stopping his lecture about who are the starter pokemon.
"Oh, who do you want?"He asked curiously.
I answered him by picking up the pokeball with a fireball on it.
"Charmander huh? I should have known you would pick something resembling a dragon."He chuckled much to my confusion.
He told me some stuff about Charmander before handing me my Pokedex and five empty pokeballs. I said goodbye to the Kanto professor before heading to Route One to begin my journey.
On Route One, I stopped in the area where Ash and Pikachu encountered Spearow. I looked around to make sure there were no Spearow before releasing Charmander from his pokeball. The orange lizard looked around to find itself outside. It looked around some more until its eyes landed on me.
"Char!"It said before coming over and hugging my leg affectionately.
I smiled and stroked the Lizard Pokemon's head. Its skin was really smooth. I then pulled out my Pokedex and scanned the pokemon.
"Charmander, the Lizard Pokemon. The flame on its tail indicates Charmander's life force. If it is healthy, the flame burns brightly. This Charmander is male and knows the moves Scratch, Ember, Growl, and Dragon Pulse."
I raised an eyebrow at this because I didn't expect my new pokemon to have this moveset. I put my Pokedex away and began talking to Charmander.
"Well, Charmander my name's Shizuko Ryu. I'm your new trainer. I don't want to become a Pokemon Master, but I do want to train my pokemon to be the best they can be. Your training won't be easy, but if you trust me and cooperate with me then I can help you become the best pokemon you can be! What do you say?"I asked him.
He stared at me for a long moment before saying "Charmander!" and looked at me with a determined expression. My new pokemon might be tamed, but it was clear that the little guy had the drive to become something great.
I sat down on the ground then took off my backpack and checked what was inside. I found a sleeping bag, tent, map, Good Rod, water, food, pokemon food, ninety-thousand pokedollars, four books about pokemon breeding, cooking, species, and moves.
"Man there's so much good stuff in here!"I said then noticed something shiny in the bag. I grabbed it and pulled out to reveal a red pokeball.
"A Cherish ball? Where'd this-"I stopped talking when the ball suddenly expanded to normal size then burst open. I yelped and watched as the light materialized into a small brown fox pokemon.
I blinked then blinked again."Eevee?"
It looked up at me and gave me a huge smile."Eevee!"It said before it pounces at me. I laughed as it assaulted my face with a series of eager licks.
"Haha stop it Eevee!"I said between laughs. It stopped licking my face and hopped to the ground then began talking with Charmander.
While they were talking, I pulled out my Pokedex and scanned the Evolution Pokemon.
"Eevee, the Evolution Pokemon. It can evolve into a variety of forms. Eevee's genes are the key to solving the mysteries of Pokémon evolution. This Eevee is female and knows the moves Quick Attack, Iron Tail, Shadow Ball, and Double Kick."
"Double Kick? Eevee can't learn Double Kick normally. It can only learn that move in Pokemon Let's Go."I thought then noticed the Eevee's tail had a heart shape white tip like the Eevee in Let's Go."Maybe it is the Eevee from Let's Go, but how is it here? I'm pretty sure this is the anime, not the game so how?"
I touched the Eevee's head and began petting her, the fox's fur was really soft. She barked and leaned into my hand, her tail wagging happily.
"How did a cutie like you end up in my bag?"I asked but didn't expect an answer.
"It would certainly help me if I could understand pokemon, but oh well,"I said to myself. I then shook my head and stood up."Who's ready to do some training?"My pokemon barked in response.
I had them battle lots of Pidgey and Rattata on land while battling Magikarp, Goldeen, and Poliwag from a nearby river. I ended up catching a Pidgey and Magikarp. Training a Magikarp would be hard but it would be worth it when he evolves into a Gyarados.
Battling wasn't the only thing he had them do, I had them run laps, and other exercises(A/N: I'm too lazy to think of other exercises to say.). I had them do this until it was time for lunch.
I let them eat to their heart's content then headed back to Pallet Town. I was going back to get my Nintendo Switch. What? Just because I'm in the literal world of pokemon doesn't mean I don't want to play any video games.
Unfortunately, when I got back to Pallet Town Gary Oak and his cheerleaders were there. Gary was bragging about how he was gonna be a Pokemon Master while mocking a certain raven-haired hero with said hero right in front of him wearing pajamas.
I however ignored this, wanting no part in this. However, Gary spotted me right as I halfway to my house.
"Well, well if it isn't Shizuko boy."Gary began everyone turning to my direction."Gramps said that you got your pokemon already. What're you still doing here? Decided that you aren't cut out to be a Pokemon Master like me?"The brunette said to me.
Had I been someone else, probably someone who falls for taunts like this, I would have stormed up to the guy and yelled in his face for a pokemon battle. Fortunately, I was a really calm and collected person that was hard to provoke. Gary on the other hand…
"Like you the guy that needs cheerleaders following him because he has low self-esteem and too much ego,"I replied and mentally chuckled at what I said. (A/N: Self-esteem and ego are not the same thing. I looked it up.)
The crowd of people gasped at what I said including Gary's cheerleaders. I saw Gary look red as a tomato either because of anger or embarrassment.
"Why you! Okay, smart mouth why don't you put your money where your mouth is and settle this with a pokemon battle!"Gary said.
"Can't we settle this with good old janken?"I asked not wanting a battle.
He sent out his starter, Squirtle, and I felt one of the pokeballs on my belt wobble. I looked down to see it was Eevee's pokeball, she was probably about to get out to battle.
I put a hand on the pokeball and muttered."Sorry girl, but I want to use Charmander for this battle. I want to beat him with a type disadvantage."The pokeball wobbled again."Don't worry, you'll get your chance soon."That did the trick because her ball stopped wobbling.
I sent out Charmander who looked confident and ready to fight. Gary decided to make the first move by having his pokemon use Tackle. The Squirtle followed his trainer's command and charged at Charmander. However, Charmander easily dodged this and I told him to use Smoke Screen. Squirtle was too close so he couldn't avoid the attack.
Gary commanded Squirtle to use Water Gun. The water type nodded and tried to take a breath but kept coughing so he had to repeat the process.
"This is just sad,"I muttered then told Charmander to use Scratch until the other pokemon fainted. The fire type followed the order and soon Gary's pokemon was down for the count.
There was a silence for a moment until it was broken by Gary yelling."How! I'm Gary Oak! How did I lose to a loser like you?!"
"Well,"I began not fazed by being called a loser."You lost for a lot of reasons, but the main reason is that I trained my pokemon before you got yours."(Hikari: That and the author is too lazy to think of a good fight scene. A/N: Quiet you!)
Gary pointed an accusing finger at me."That's it! You're a cheater that's why I lost! Nobody can defeat the Great Gary Oak!"He said. (Hikari: Except Ash, Mewtwo, and other characters.)
Everyone and Gary's cheerleaders seemed to agree with the brunette and began booing him and calling him names. I shrugged at this, I could care less about background characters that I'll never see again.
He told me next time we battle, he would win with no problem before getting in his car with his cheerleaders and driving away.
"He is so gonna crash,"I muttered and wondered why he was given a car when he was ten.
The crowd of people dispersed and I was about to head inside but was stopped by a certain raven haired boy.
"Hey, Shizuko wait!"Ash called as he approached me.
"What do you want? To yell you're cheater to my face too?"I asked in a nonchalant tone.
He shook his head."No, I don't think you're a cheater! You won fair and square! Gary made the choice of battling a trainer that had more experience than him."Ash told me smiling.
I blinked and blinked again then looked at him like he grew a second head.
"Why are you looking at me like that?"Ash asked.
"...You're Ash Ketchum right?"I asked slowly wondering if this was really the same Ash that began his journey in Kanto.
"The one and only!"Ash said grinning then frowned."Why ask me that? You feeling alright?"He asked in a concerned tone.
I nodded and asked."Quick question, what are the current pokemon types?"
"Grass, fire, water, electric, bug, flying, normal, rock, ground, steel, ghost, fighting, ice, dragon, psychic, dark, poison, and fairy."He answered."Why do you ask?"
"No reason,"I replied while thinking about what was going on.
"Okay, well see ya!"He said before turning around and headed to Professor Oak's lab.
I stood next to my door for a moment, thinking about why this Ash was different from the Ash I knew from the TV series, but I couldn't think of anything.
I shrugged and decided to put this at the back of mind before going into my house and getting my switch. Once I got it I left town. I was not coming back to Pallet Town anytime soon.
