Shad~

Hala threw the pokeballs into the air and out came the three pokemon. They each landed on the wooden platform, and looked at the people in front of them. There were two Rowlets and one Popplio, and as soon as the Popplio settled it's eyes on them it stood up on it's tail and clapped it's fins happily, barking in delight. The Rowlet that was beside the Popplio simply nodded towards them and hooted, but quickly looked at the blue pokemon in annoyance. That particular Rowlet was... Odd. Instead of the regular colors Shad had seen Rowlets sport, it was instead mainly turqouse with a blueish-green bowtie, and reddish-orange beak and feet. The last of the pokemon, the normal looking Rowlet, looked at the other two pokemon, and then at Shad. Shad noticed this, and looked back. For a moment they just stared, until the Rowlet opened up it's wings and took off. "Wait- where is it going?" Shad said in surprise, and tried looking after it, only to find that it had somehow dissapeared. Hau turned his gaze from Popplio over to Shad. "Where is what going?" he asked. "Rowlet- the normal colored one- just flew off and-". He didn't get to say anymore because right when he was finishing his sentence, Rowlet swooped up behind him and hooted right into his ears. Shad stumbeled down, yelling in surprise and landed flat on the ground. "Shad! Are you alright?" Rotom asked and floated down to his level. Rowlet seemed to be snickering and landed on his head, satisfied with his work. "Yep. I'm. Fine." Shad said, moving his head up so that he could see Rotom. Rotom sighed in relief, and Rowlet took a few steps on Shad's head, and bended down so that they were eye to eye. Shad gave him the "Really?" look, and he just stared, tilting his head to the side. He sighed, and stood up, dusting off his clothes while Rowlet still stood up on his head. After he was finished with that, he heard some chuckling and looked over to see Hau, Kukui and Hala looking at him with amused expressions, Hau holding Popplio in his arms. "What's so funny?" Shad asked, even though he knew exactly what was so funny. Hala shook his head and looked at him with a smile. "Ever since little Rowlet came into my care he's been a little trickster to anyone he found interesting. I've been thinking that it's the little one's way of expressing interest and fondness to others, especially since I've been the target of most of his pranks so far". Shad lifted Rowlet off of his head and looked at it. Rowlet looked back, staring into his eyes.

Even if it was just for a second, the moment their eyes locked Shad felt something... Strange, but not in a bad way. It was this tingly feeling, like he was happy, yet he could feel how he was getting more determined, but it was still it's own feeling. And as he looked into the grey eyes of the pokemon in his arms, he knew that he felt the same. And they both knew.

Shad looked at Hala and smiled. "I think we'll be great partners for each other". Hala smiled back, and handed Shad Rowlet's pokeball. "Then may you become fine Trainer and Pokemon together". Shad accepted the ball with an even bigger smile, and looked at it happily. "You know cousin, you can give Rowlet a name if your feeling like it" Kukui said, making Shad lift his gaze up to meet his and then looked at Rowlet. "Yeah, I think I will. Let's see..." he said, pondering about choices for a moment. And after a moment of thought he looked back up at Rowlet. "Howzabout Nightshade?" he asked. Rowlet tilted his head, before giving him a hoot of approval. Shad smiled at him. "Welp, Nightshade it is!". Rowlet put on a content face and flew up. At first he thought Nightshade was going to scare him again, but quickly understood what he meant to do. He lifted his left arm, and Nightshade landed on it. At first Shad just smiled at him, after all what was there not to smile about? But after a small moment the smile completely dissapeared from his face and he was quick to shake his arm a bit so that Nightshade flew up again and instead landed on the ground, looking at him confused. Shad took hold of his left arm and looked at it before looking back at Nightshade. "Sorry buddy, it's not you, I just happened to have some scratches on the spot where you stood on" he said. Kukui walked over to Shad and took his left arm carefully. "Let me see" he said, and looked at it. And quickly his eyes went wide and he looked at Shad. "Whoa, exactly what caused you to get this badly scratched up?" he asked. Shad smiled akwardly as Kukui looked at his arm which was littered with small scars. "Well, long story short, Nebby got attacked by a pack of Spearow and they didn't take the interruption very lightly". Kukui nodded and let go of his arm, and instead put his arm around his back. "We're going to get Shad bandaged up, we'll be back soon" he said, and guided Shad over to the biggest house in the village, with Rowlet sitting on Shad's head and Rotom floating right beside him.

 

((You and Hau will have a battle and then the winner will get to battle Shad))

I was worried about Shad. I knew he wouldn’t admit he was hurt but those looked like serious scratches. My gaze turned to the Turquoise Rowlet. I smiled and the Rowlet nodded and I knew he wanted to be my partner. I held out my arm and he spread his wings. He took off and landed perfectly on my arm. He was serious and seemed like a leader. He acted like... my dad. Rowlet noticed my sad expression and turned his head 180. He faced towards me even though his body was facing the other way. I realized it and said “It’s nothing.” I knew by his face he knew I was hiding something. The Kahuna smiled and said “You can give Rowlet a nickname if you want.” I thought for a moment and said “Nah, I like the name Rowlet.” Rowlet looked at me still wanting an awnser. I gave him a face that meant “I will tell you later”. Hau turned to me and asked “Wanna battle?” Rowlet grined And I knew he loved to fight. I nodded and Rowlet flew off ,y arm and soared into the sky. Hau let go of Popplio and Rowlet dove down hovering above the ground. “Popplio Use Water Gun!” The Pokemon sprayed water at Rowlet but nothing happened. “Use Leafage!” I yelled and instantly Rowlet attacked using the leaves. It hit Popplio and Did way more damage than the Water Gun. Popplio is a water type! I remembered. “Growl!” Hau called and the Popplio growled loudly. As it was about to hit Rowlet he blocked the sound and flapping his wings hard. “Leafage!” I called and Rowlet shot out leaves. Popplio struggled to get back up after the move hit. “Popplio!” Hau cried “Finish this!” Rowlet tackled the Popplio and it fainted. “Good work!” Rowlet then satisfied landed on my arm. “Return.” Hau said retrieving Popplio, “You should tell your mother before you leave on your journey.” The kahuna Said. I nodded and ran off towards my house.

I ran up to my house with Rowlet on my arm and Rotom dex begins me. I opened the door and my mom’s Pichu ran up to me “Hi Pichu.” I Said “Chuuu!” Pichu Said. Rotom dex quickly scared Pichu and said “Pichu the tiny mouse Pokémon. Pichu is the unevolved form of Pikachu. Pichu is a pure electric type. It’s weakness is ground types.” “Thanks Rotom.” I Said “Look at your cute Pokémon!” My mom said picking up Rowlet. Rowlet got mad as my mom squeezed it. “Mom!” I yelled as Rowlet used Leafage “Rowlet isn’t the hugging type.” I Said as Rowlet landed on my shoulder. “Who is this?” My mom asked looking at Rotom dex “This is Rotom Dex. He is really a Rotom but he now possesses a Pokedex.” “Nice to Meet you.” Rotom dex Said. My mom smiled and Handed my a huge box “These are your thing.” My mom said. I nodded and carried them to my room. I set the box down on my bed. I opened it and took out my jumbo Lapras plush and put it in a corner. As I continued to unpack I told Rowlet “To awnser your Question I made that face because I was thinking about my dad and how your personality is like his. You see he died when I was young during a war.” Rowlet slowy nodded and landed on Lapras’s Head. I smiled and opened a window. I threw out Charizard’s Poke ball and he flew out. “Go look for Shad and report back.” I told him. He roared and flew off. “A CHARIZARD! I NEVER IN MY HWOLE LIFE HAVE SEEN A RIDE POKÉMON COUGHT!” “He was my dad’s...” I Said “HE MUST BE REALLY STRONG!” “He is.” I Said nodding

Shad~

After rather painfully disinfecting Shad's wounds and carefully wrapping the bandages, his left forearm was finally all bandaged up. The rest of his arm only had bandaids sticked on here and there since the scratches ended there.

Kukui walked into the room with a tray in his hands. On the tray was a glass of juice and a plate full of berries. He walked over to the sofa where Shad was sitting at. Shad's left arm was resting on his lap while his right arm was petting Nightshade's head. Kukui put the tray down onto the table by the sofa and sat down beside Shad. Shad looked up and smiled gratefully, taking the glass and taking a sip before putting it down. "Now you just gotta remember to change the bandages and bandaids regularly and you should be all good" Kukui said, to which Shad nodded. "Thanks for patching me up" he said. Kukui shrugged. "Well, what kind of world would it be if people wouldn't help each other yeah?" he anwsered.

A moment of silence followed, before Shad thought about something. "Hey, where did Lillie go? The last time I saw her was when we met up with you and Hala". Kukui nodded. "Yeah, Lillie went back to the house since she didn't want Nebby causing more trouble. It was getting restless in that bag" he said with a slight chuckle. "Actually about that. I've been meaning to ask, but why does Nebby have to stay in a bag? What exactly could be so dangerous that it has to be hidden all the time?". When Shad said this Kukui's face went blank. He looked down at Shad, before sighing. "Alright, look kid, what I'm about to tell you stays between you, me, Grace and Lillie. Understand?". The sudden change of tone in the situation made Shad stop in his tracks. He was no longer petting Nightshade, and he looked at Kukui's face with confusement and a bit of worry. Kukui was d.ead serious. Nightshade nudged Shad's hand and he continued petting, slowly nodding. "Okay. I understand". Kukui sighed again, wether it was in relief or something else, he didn't know. He came closer, bending down to eye level and spoke quietly, as if what he was about to say was something no one in the world could ever know about. "Alright, I'll tell you. You've probably already noticed that Nebby isn't exactly...normal, either by just appearence or a feeling in your gut, it doesn't matter. We don't know much, but what Lillie has told me, Nebby comes from another world, far away from ours. And that's not all. You see, Nebby is a pokemon called Cosmog, and Cosmogs are very rare. And I mean extremly rare. That's why Nebby needs to stay in the bag at all times when outside. I must admit, I was a bit hesitant at first about Lillie's approach to the matter, but I can tell that she knows something that I don't, although she refuses to tell me for reasons I don't know either. But the point is that there could be a lot of people after Nebby, and you never know what they could have in plan for it". At this point Shad's expression was very serious, he knew the severity of the situation now. To think that Nebby could be a walking target was a hard fact to swallow, and to just think how close it was to getting hurt just some mere hours ago...

Kukui straightened up and looked at Shad with worried eyes. He could sense the tension in the boy, and Nightshade could as well. Shad had stopped petting the Rowlet a long time ago, and now Nightshade was looking at Shad with an expression matching Kukui's. Nightshade turned his gaze to Kukui, and looked at him with pleading grey eyes. "I don't like this. Why is he so stressed? Please make it stop". Kukui could almost hear Nightshade's silent wish, and decided to act upon it. He cleared his throat in order to get Shad's attention. It worked, and Shad looked up at Kukui. "Moving on from that, there's actually something else I need to talk to you about. You see, each year we hold a festival here in Iki Town to honour the guardian deity of Melemele, Tapu Koko. We do so by putting up stands, playing music and of course, the highlight of the event, watching the fiery pokemon battles between new trainers! I'm bringing this up because you three are the only new trainers this year. It would be great if you could convince the others to come as well!". Shad thought for a small moment before looking back up and smiled. "Yeah, I can do that. It sounds like a lot of fun". Kukui smiled back towards Shad. "Then it's decided! I'll pick up you and Grace tomorrow before the festival starts". Shad nodded with a smile, seemingly haven forgotten about the whole Nebby ordeal already. Nightshade sighed in relief, and looked back towards Kukui. "Thank you" he seemed to be saying. Kukui only smiled back. "You're welcome".

"Zrrrrt, are you two finished zzoon?" Rotom's voice came from outside. The three of them looked over towards the door, before looking back to each other. "I think me and Rotom will manage back home from here. Thanks for everything!" Shad said, standing up and digging up Nightshade's pokeball. Kukui only smiled towards the boy. Nightshade obediantly went inside, and once that was done Shad walked over to the door, and went outside.

"There you are! Me and Hau have been waiting for you Shad!" Rotom said, floating over to Shad's side. "Yeah, sorry for leaving you two hanging. Where is Hau anyway?". Rotom was just about to anwser when suddenly something hit Shad's back, not hard, but it was definitely hard enough to make him jump, and he also heard a "Boo!" come from behind him. He stumbeled a few steps forward before quickly turning around to see Hau standing there grinning like an idiot. "H-Hau!? What was that for??" Shad stuttered. Hau laughed and walked over to Shad snickering. "Sorry Shad, but I just had to scare you myself after the little display you and Nightshade put up earlier" he explained, all the while he was still wearing that grin. Shad gave him the same "Really?" look, which only made Hau snicker even more. "Sorry Shad, I wazz going to tell you, but Hau insisted that I'd keep it quiet for you. He didn't want me to "ruin the surprise"" Rotom said, doing air quotations with his arms, if it could even be called that. "Great. My partner and guide also happens to be a traitor. Good to know." Shad mumbeled bitterly. "W-what?! I-I'm not a traitor Zzrrrt! I swear, I didn't mean any harm, I just-". "Whoa, calm down! I only meant it as a joke!" Shad quickly said in order to calm down Rotom. He stopped, and looked at Shad. "Really? But why would you joke about something like that?" he asked curiously. Shad shrugged. "I guess that's just how I am. Just know that if I ever say something that may or may not sound mean, it's most likely just as a joke. You'll know if I actually mean any harm with what I say" Shad assured him. Rotom looked at Shad weirdly, but he seemed to understand.

At this point Hau had calmed down enough, and nudged Shad with his elbow in order to catch his attention. "Hey, now that you're all good to go, I was thinking if you could come with me to help me with something real quick. It shouldn't take too long, so don't worry". "Sure, what is it?" Shad asked. "Well, now that we're pokemon trainers and all, there is this one pokemon I've been wanting to catch. You see, near Iki Town there is a big patch of grass and some trees, and in that area there are a lot of Pichu roaming about. At this time of year there is more Pichu around that area, more than normally, and I've been wanting to catch one for myself. I was wondering if you would want to come with me and help me find a Pichu, since they're pretty quick on their feet". Shad thought about it for a second, before nodding. "Yeah, I don't see why not. This could be a pretty good opportunity to register some pokemon to the dex as well!". Hau smiled widely. "Thanks! I knew I could count on you!". Rotom seemed to get interested as well and floated closer. "I like the zzound of that! Count me in!". Shad smiled and looked at the others. "Well what are we waiting for? Let's go catch some Pichu!".

 

"You see anything?" Hau called out to Shad and Rotom, who were currently looking through the tall grass. Shad lifted his head up and shook his head. "Nope, not a trace. You sure this is the right place?". Hau crossed his arms and looked over at Shad. "Yes I'm sure! I've passed by this place countless of times before, I've even played with the Pichu living here!". Shad shrugged and continued looking. Suddenly Rotom bursted out of the grass. "I saw one run past me! And it'z going towards Shad, zzzrt!". Shad looked up towards Rotom in surprise, and sure enough, he felt a swish go by his feet. "Don't let it get away!" Hau yelled, and started running towards Shad. Rotom started flying towards him as well, keeping his eye on the rustling grass of where Pichu was running. "To the left!" Rotom yelled, and now Shad joined in the chase. They ran after the rustling grass, and kept on going for a solid minute or so, until finally they had chased the Pichu down into a corner. "Alright let's win this one Popplio!" Hau yelled out and threw Popplio's pokeball high into the air. Popplio landed down gracefully and clapped it's hands, barking happily before locking eyes with it's opponent. "Use Water Gun!" Hau yelled out and Popplio did what it was asked to do. The water gun landed straight on the Pichu which yelled in surprise as it was thrown against the rocky wall. However, it quickly stood up, still standing strong after an attack like that. Hau looked at the Pichu in confusement, taking a small step back. "Water Type attacks aren't effective on an Electric Type! Try another attacking more instead!" Shad suddenly yelled from behind, and Hau nodded. "Alright, we'll use Pound instead!". Popplio rushed over to the Pichu and delivered the attack. After getting a smack and two the Pichu fell to the ground, hurt but still not enough to be caught. And now was the Pichu's turn to attack. Before Hau could send out any commands, the Pichu's electric sacs lit up with energy and Pichu used Thunder Shock on Popplio. The attack hit, and Popplio flew backwards, the attack having dealt a good deal of damage. This made Hau even more anxious. At this point Shad and Rotom had caught up with Hau, and he was beside him. "Don't give up! That attack was effective on Popplio, but Popplio's still stronger than Pichu. Just keep attacking!". Hau looked at Shad and nodded before turning back to Popplio. "Use Pound!".

 

After minutes of intense battling, the Pichu was finally down to a low health, and was struggling to keep itself standing. "Alright, this is it! Throw a ball, now!". Hau nodded and dug up a Pokeball, and then threw it. It hit Pichu square on the head, and it went inside. This was it. One shake. Everyone was staring intensly at the ball. Two shakes. Hau was starting to get a bit anxious, and Shad put a hand on his shoulder to keep him calm. Three shakes. This was it. Everyone stared. Until, the ball shaked and small sparkles flew around it, signifying that the pokemon had been caught. Hau yelled in relief and excitement, jumping up into the air before running over to the ball. He picked it up, and grinned like there was no tomorrow. He held the ball high up in the air victoriously. "We did it! Our first caught pokemon!". Popplio dragged itself over to Hau and barked in excitement. Hau turned to face Popplio and smiled at it. "You did amazing Popplio! You deserve some rest" he said, and dug up Popplio's pokeball. Popplio went inside, and Hau ran quickly over to Shad. "I did it!" he said in excitement. Shad was smiling as well, and nodded. "Yep, you sure did. Congratulations!" he said. Hau grinned and looked at the ball again. "Data updated! Pichu has been registered to the Pokedex!" Rotom piped up, and his screen showed a page with information about Pichu. Shad looked at the page, reading a few lines before looking Rotom in the eyes. "Thanks Rotom!" he said. Rotom closed the page and gave Shad a smile. "Of course Shad! It's my job to record pokemon, remember zzrt?". Shad nodded. "Yeah, I guess so. Bu still, thanks!". Then he turned to face Hau. "Once again, congrats on catching Pichu! But I think I'll have to go now. It's pretty late if you haven't noticed, and I don't want to worry my mom". Hau nodded in understanding. "I understand. And thank you and Rotom for helping me catch Pichu!".

Just as he said that a great shadow moved over their heads. Shad looked up in confusement, and saw a gigantic Charizard fly over them and land near the grass patch, a very familiar Charizard at that. "Hey, that's Grace's Charizard" Shad said, and walked over to Charizard. "What are you doing here Charizard? Something happened?" Shad asked as he approached the Fire type pokemon. Charizard huffed and looked up towards the sky. The moon was starting to slowly rise, ending the short period of twilight and entering the nighttime. At first Shad didn't quite understand, but then quickly realized what it was trying to tell him. "Oh, you mean you're here to take me back home?" he asked. Charizard nodded, and lowered itself so that Shad could climb on board. Shad did just that, and Rotom followed right beside him. "Data updated! Charizard has been registered to the Pokedex!" Rotom said, and Charizard's page was now on the screen. "Thanks Rotom" Shad said, before Charizard took off into the night sky.

 

When they finally arrived back at Shad's home the moon had already risen up high in the night sky. The stars twinkeled, undisturbed by any clouds on the dark sky. Shad slid off of Charizard's back, giving it a quick thanks before walking over to Grace's house. He walked up the stairs, and knocked.

Shad! I thought with joy as I heard the nock. I ran to the door with Rowlet on my shoulder and Rotom right behind. I quickly opened the door to see Charizard with Shad, Nightshade and Rotom. “Your ok!” I Said with joy hugging him. I then realized I was hurting his arm and stopped “Sorry about that.” I looked up at Charizard and smiled “You can go for a moon lit flight but be back soon.” I Said and Charizard took off. “Grace! It is Night some cool Pokémon will be out!” Rotom Said “Cool!” I ran outside with joy looking for Pokémon. I then saw a grassy area. I smiled and ran over. “See if you can find anything.” I Said as Rowlet spread his wings and soare above the grass. “You too.” I Said turning to Rotom “Yes mam.” Rotom Said saluting and turning to look. I then carefully walked around looking for a Pokémon. After a couple minutes I heard rustling grass. I turned my head and saw a Grubbin pop out of the ground. “Go Rowlet!” I yelled and Rowlet flew out from behind me it hovered in front of the Grubbin “Tackle!” I yelled and Rowlet dove down and right as it was about to land a hit the Grubbin dove down under the ground. “After it!” I yelled and Rowlet dove down after it. I felt the ground under me vibrate and I jumped out of the way just in time as Grubbing leaped out of the ground Rowlet chasing it. “Tackle!” I yelled and Rowlet tackled Grubbin the the ground. Grubbin then used Vice Grip. “Tackle!” Rowlet hit the Grubbin hard but it wasn’t enough. Minutes past and finally Grubbin was exhausted and weak. I threw a Pokeball at it and Grubbin went inside. The ball shook back and forth back and forth until it stoped moving and sparks came out of it. With joy I picked it up and sent out my new Pokémon “Welcome to the team Grubbi.” I Said. Grubbin looked like it smiled as it crawled up my leg onto my arm. Rowlet furious, nocked off Grubbin, mad that it was on my arm. I shock my head as Grubbin and Rowlet fought each other. Rowlet knew he alone wanted to be my alpha Pokémon and finally Rowlet came out victorious over Grubbin. Rowlet then landed on my arm. “Return Grubbin.” I Said holding out it’s Pokeball. A light beam came out of the sphere and hit Grubbin and It opened. Grubbin wen timside and it closed with a click. I put Grubbin’s ball in my bag and Rotom Said “Grubbin, The larva Pokemon. It is a pure bug type. It’s weaknesses are Fire, Flying and Rock. Later in it’s evolutionary line it will gain the electric type.” I smiled and saw Charizard was flying over head. Charizard landed an dI pet his nose. It lowered his back and I climbed on. I then reached out my hand to Shad.

Shad~

Shad smiled when Grace opened the door, but before he got the chance to say anything Grace hugged him tightly, seemingly forgetting about his bad arm. He clenched his teeth, pain evident on his face. Grace seemed to quickly remember his bad arm and released him immediately, leaving Shad rubbing his arm. She apologized, to which Shad just smiled akwardly and said "It's alright". Grace's Rotom suddenly remarked the fact that it was nighttime and that some cool pokemon might be out. Both Grace and Shad immediately got excited, and they started running along the road to find a place to catch pokemon.

It didn't take a long time of following the dirt road before they reached a grassy area. Grace ran over to the grassy area with a smile on her face, and she began looking with her Rowlet and Rotom. "C'mon Shad, let'zz not let them have all the fun!" Rotom said and floated up to his face. Shad nodded with a smile. "Of course not!". Shad dug up Nightshade's pokeball, and sent out the Rowlet. Nightshade came out, and looked at Shad before hooting. Shad bent down to look at Nightshade. "Alright Nightshade, we're gonna be looking for some cool pokemon, so keep your eye out alright?". Nightshade hooted in approval, and flew up to land on Shad's head. Shad chuckeled. "You really like that spot don't you?". Nightshade cooed, and Shad shrugged. "Alrite, not gonna judge. As long as you're looking it's all well and good. You gonna search with us as well Rotom?" Shad asked Rotom. "Of course Shad!" it said, and they all began looking for a pokemon in the tall grass. And it didn't take long either.

Just as Grace had encountered a pokemon, so did Shad. The grass behind him rusteled, and suddenly a small black pokemon flew out of the grass, doing a few laps around Shad, before landing further away from the grass. Nightshade hooted, and Shad ran after the pokemon with Rotom floating beside him. They got to the edge of the grass, and now he could see it. It was like a small bird, being mainly black and white with a long narrow beak, big blue eyes, and a streak of red going up it's head. "Hey, that's a new pokemon! What is it?" Shad asked, looking over towards Rotom. Rotom searched for a second before a page opened up on it's screen. "Pikipek, the Woodpecker Pokemon. A Normal and Flying Type, it can evolve twice during it's lifetime" Rotom said before closing the screen. Shad looked at the Pikipek with a smile on his face, and both of them knew that a battle was to come. "Alright, well a Pikiped it is! Nightshade, we're gonna win this!" he said, and Nightshade flew up from his head down to the ground. "Use Tackle!" he shouted, and Nightshade flew high up into the air, before swooping straight down, hitting Pikipek hard. "Whoa, that was a critical hit zrrt!" Rotom said in amazement as the Pikiped stumbeled back after the attack. Nightshade landed on the ground, waiting for commands. Shad looked at Nightshade with a proud look, before focusing back on the battle. Pikiped was well damaged, but it was still strong enough to continue. "Nightshade's Grass and Flying, so he's two times weak to Flying" Shad thought. "Use Growl!" he commanded, and Nightshade growled threateningly at the Pikipek. It shivered, but went for an attack anyway. It took off from the ground, and in the blink of an eye it attacked Nightshade with a Peck. Nightshade fell back as Pikiped flew back to it's place. Rotom looked over at Nighshade worriedly, but once it saw that he hadn't taken a lot of damage, he was confused. "But Peck is supposed to be very effective on Nighshade, how come he's not as hurt as he should be zrrt?" Rotom asked in confusion. Shad looked over at Rotom. "You see Rotom, Growl reduces the amount of damage a pokemon does when using a physical attack, therefor the Peck wasn't as powerful as it normally would be" he explained, and Rotom seemed to get it now. "Wow Shad, you're really smart!" it praised Shad, to which he smiled. "Thanks, I used to watch a lot of battle videos when I was younger". But after that he went back onto focusing on the battle. "Tackle, again!" he commanded, and Nighshade did just as before. He flew up into the air, and swooped down. This time, Pikiped dodged, but didn't expect to having to dodge again. Nightshade steered back towards the Pikiped after he missed once, and the move hit anyway. Pikiped flew a few feet back, and Nighshade flew back to his position. Now Pikiped was weakened, and it had a hard time standing back up. Grabbing a pokeball, Shad threw it and it hit the pokemon. Pikiped went inside, and the ball started with it's shaking. After a few shakes, the ball finally stopped and sparkles flew around it. Shad smiled widely, doing a small victory dance before running up to the pokeball and picking it up. He looked at it proudly before turning back towards Nighshade. "We were great Nightshade! Especially you, great job!" he praised the pokemon, who flew over to him and landed on his left shoulder, hooting happily. "Data updated! Pikiped has been registered to the Pokedex!" Rotom said, and Pikipek's page came up. "Thanks again Rotom, and thanks to you Nightshade" Shad said and petted Nightshade. This time he happened to miss with where his hand was supposed to go, and instead of going onto Nightshade's head, his hand landed on Nightshade's bowtie. Nighshade cooed in delight as Shad petted the two leaves. "Oh? So that's where you really like to be pet at huh?" Shad said in surprise, and petted Nightshade's head. "Guess you learn something new every day". By now Grace had caught whatever pokemon she had been battling with, and Charizard had comen back. He started walking over to Grace and Charizard with Rotom following him, as he looked at the ball in his hands. "Lychee. I think I should name you Lychee" he said quietly towards the ball. And while it may sound a bit weird, it felt like Lychee agreed on that name. By now he was beside Charizard and Grace had already climbed up onto his back. She held out an arm to Shad, which he accepted. "Thank you" he said, and sat down behind Grace as they took off.

 

When they landed back at their houses Shad slid off of Charizards back and landed with a small thud. Rotom floated down beside him and Nightshade was still sitting on his head. "Hey Grace, it's been nice hanging out today with you. It's been pretty crazy, but at least it was fun. Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow. Goodnight" he said, and started walking towards his home. But just as he was about to go up the stairs he stopped, as he realized he had forgotten something. "Oh wait, Grace, before you go! There's going to be a festival tomorrow in Iki Town and Kukui's gonna come pick us up, there's gonna be all sorts of fun stuff there. Even battling!" he yelled to Grace.

“Return Charizard.” I Said as Charizard went into his Pokeball. “You too Rowlet.” Rowlet went into his ball I put both of them in my bag next to Grbbin’s ball. Shad then yelled something about a festival and Kukui picking us up. “Ok.” I called back and went inside. “DO YOU REALIZE WHAT TIME IT IS YOUNG LADY! I WAS WORRIED SICK WHAT WERE YOU DOING UP SO LATE!” My mom yelled as I closed the door. “I was hanging out with Shad and cought a Pokémon.” I Said “Oh. Ok. Can I see it?” I nodded and took out Grubbin’s ball. I threw it into the air and out came the small Pokémon. “Is that all the Pokémon you have?” My mom asked “Oh yeah this is Rowlet.” I Said as I took out the other ball and threw it into the air. Out came Rowlet and he landed perfectly on the ground. “What is up with those colors? Looks like there is something wrong with it.” Ipmy mom said. Furiously Rowlet used Leafage on my mom. Obviously mad he fallowed it with a Tackle and turned to Grubbin and yelled something at it. Soon enough both my Pokémon were attacking my mom. “I AM SORRY!” My mom yelled. Rowlet huffed and landed on my shoulder and Grubbin sat down at my feet. I quickly took them to my room and set them down on my bed. A little embarrassed since both my Pokémon were boys and I am a girl I took my pajamas into my bathroom to change. I came out wearing my pajamas and set Rowlet on a perch and Grubbin on a pile of dirt I brought in for it. Grubbin curled up and fell asleep. I sighed and put Charizard’s ball on the window seal so it could look outside. I got into bed and turned off the lights...

 

 

I awoke to find Rowlet pecking at me. “I’m up.” I moaned “What time is it Rotom?” I waited a moment and no one responded “Rotom?” I then looked out the window and saw it was barely day. “Let me guess you want to Train?” Rowlet nodded and landed on it’s perch I quickly changed and brought Rowlet and Grubbin outside letting Rotom rest in my room. “Rowlet Tackle! Grubbin Vice Grip!” I yelled and the two Pokémon hit each other with a thud. “Get up and use Vice Grip!” Grubbin stood up and charged at Rowlet “Dodge!” I didn’t realize how loud I was until Rotom stormed outside “WHY ARE YOU THREE TRAINING SO EARLY?” Rotom yelled “Sorry.” I Said slightly embarrassed. I really hoped I didn’t wake Shad up.

Shad~

Shad opened the door and stepped inside. Just as he had closed the door he was greeted by a tight hug from Wilma. "Where have you been for so long!? Why didn't you come back home!? I was getting worried when you took longer that you said you would, and you come home first at night!??" Wilma yelled as she kept her bone-crushing death grip on Shad. Shad's face was contorted with pain as just like Grace, she was squeazing his bad arm. "Mom- stop! Can't breathe..!" he managed to say through his teeth. Wilma reluctantly let go of him, and when she did she gasped and covered her mouth with her hands. "Shad, why is your arm all covered in bandages!?" she said horrified. Shad held his arm tightly as the wounds stung badly. "There was a situation, and a pack of Spearow cut up my arm. It's nothing too bad, I swear. Just a bunch of scratches" he tried assuring her, but she was having none of it. "Nonsense! You will come right over here and tell me everything!" she said, and took hold of his right hand, and dragged him off to the living room.

 

After many minutes of explaining, Wilma had calmed down and finally understood. "Alright, I guess I overreacted a bit. But you have to be more careful!" she scolded him. He nodded, grateful that she was calmer now. Though he had left out the part where it was Nebby who had been attacked first, that was something he did not want to have to explain to her now. Sighing Wilma ran her hand through her hair, and looked over towards Shad. "Well now that that's all in the past, why don't you show me your new partner?". Shad looked back at her and nodded. "Alright, but I don't have just one partner, in fact, I have three partners". Wilma looked confused. Shad snickered at her expression, and took out two of the pokeballs. "I got a Rowlet from the Kahuna in Iki Town, my starter. His name is Nightshade" he said, and let out Nightshade from his pokeball. He landed on the floor, and when he saw Wilma he took a few steps towards her and hooted. "Awww, he's so adorable! I could just squish the little thing!" she said, and reached out to pet Nightshade. Nightshade hooted again when she pet his head. "And when I got back from helping out Hau, me and Grace went to look for some new pokemon, and we found this little fella" he said, and released Lychee. She landed on the table in front of him, and she chirped happily. "Lychee? Such a creative name Shad! And she's adorable too!" Wilma said, to which Lychee chirped again. "But wait, didn't you say you had three partners?" she asked. Shad nodded, and took out his bag, and opened it. And out from the bag came Rotom. "It's a pleasure to meet you miss Wilma" Rotom said. Wilma's eyes were wide as saucers as she stared at the talking Pokedex. "This is my Pokedex and my companion! You see, this is a special Pokedex since it can be posessed by a Rotom, which it currently is" Shad explained, all the while Wilma was looking at Rotom wide-eyed. "Um, Shad, is she going to freak out? Like you did?" Rotom asked hesitantly. Shad shook his head. "Naw, she'll stare but she'll get over it, so don't worryboutit". Rotom sighed in relief, and Wilma finally stopped staring. She cleared her throat and looked normally at Rotom with a smile. "Hello Rotom, I'm Wilma. Nice to meet you" she said, holding out a hand. Rotom held out his "hand" as well, and they shook hands. "Likewise" he said. Suddenly Shad yawned, and they both turned to look at him. "I think it's about time I go to bed. It's pretty late if you haven't noticed". Wilma only smiled and nodded. "Alright dear, have sweet dreams" she said as Shad stood up and walked over to his room. On the way there he bumped into Frossy, who sang him a "Goodnight Shad". He walked into his room, and the two birds quickly perched themselves on an Oran Berry tree he had in his room. It was still small, so it only beared a few fruits each year. Right now it had no fruits, but it would soon start blooming. Shad put his backpack leaning against one of the boxes sitting in his room, and put his hat hanging on a hook on the wall. Rotom floated next to him, and settled down onto his desk, before turning off to recharge over the night. Shad sighed and pulled out his pajamas from one of his boxes, and went to the bathroom to change. Once he came back he saw that Nightshade and Lychee were already sleeping. He crawled under the confort of his blanket, and quietly said "Goodnight" before closing his eyes.

 

*THUMHP*

 

Shad quickly shot up awake as he felt something soft landing on his face. He whipped his head around before looking down in front of him. Nightshade sat on the blanket with a smug face on. Shad groaned. Apparently his face was so comfortable looking that Nightshade just had to land on it and wake him up. Groaning he slid out of his bed, seeing that it was already so late but so early that he wouldn't be able to sleep anymore. Lychee was still waking up, and chirped when he saw that Shad was up. He glanced over to Rotom. Rotom was still switched off, though he guessed that he too would soon be awake. Sighing he took his clothes and walked over to the bathroom to change, with Nightshade and Lychee trailing behind him.

 

After a fulfilling breakfast he went over to feed his new companions. He had found a bag with seeds for pokemon, and so he had taken a handful of seeds and handfed Nighshade. Nightshade had happily pecked at the seeds and it didn't take long before he was full. Lychee on the other hand didn't really want to eat seeds, so instead he offered her a Sitrus Berry, which she happily ate. After the breakfast he went to pack his backpack, and Rotom finally woke up. "Shad, why are you up so early?" he asked. Shad shrugged. "Nightshade thought it was a good idea to prank me when I was sleeping, and I'm not very good at falling asleep once I'm awake" he explained, to which Rotom nodded. While Shad was prodding and digging up stuff he happened to pull out a certain piece of wood from one of the boxes. The wooden piece was rectangular, and it was hollowed out with a round hole in the middle. On the piece were many metal pieces stuck on, which all did different pitch noises when pushed at. It was Shad's old Kalimba which he had brought with him from Kalos. He had owned the instrument all the way from the time when he and Wilma still lived in Snowbelle City. Shad felt a bit nostalgic when he stared at the Kalimba. It had been his favourite instrument for a long time, and he'd play it regularly. Remembering this he put the Kalimba in his backpack, it would be fun to play it after all that this time.

After telling his mom that he was going out he opened the door and walked outside. The sun was still rising, and it was fairly quiet. Apart from Grace's voice commanding her two pokemon to use different moves on each other. Shad looked over towards Grace's house, and sure enough she was standing in front of her house with Rowlet and Grubbin battling each other, and her Rotom saying something to her. "Hey, good morning Grace!" Shad yelled and ran over to her, Rotom following after. "Did you sleep well?" he asked her once he had arrived by her side.

“Yeah I slept well until SOMEONE woke me up bynpecking me!” I glared at Rowlet and he smiled. I sighed and realized that Grubbin was getting impatient. “Let’s continue. Grubbin Use Vice Grip!” Grabbin charged towards Rowlet and right as it was about to hit Rolwet flew up dodging it. Rowlet dove down and used a peck! “You learned peck Rowlet!” I Said with joy. “Kooo.” Rowlet added “Peck again!” Rolwet turned around and used peck. “Direct hit!” Rotom Said. Grubbin was struggling to get up so I decided we could stop. “Return.” I Said and Grubbin went into his Pokeball. “You too.” Then Rowlet went into his ball. “Come on out!” I Said throwing out Charizard’s ball. Charizard roared and I said “Go take a morning flight.” Charizard spread his wings and took off with a gust. “What tie is Kukui picking us up?”

"Well, he didn't say what time he would be picking us up, but I found one of my mom's brochure's lying around. It said that the Festivals would be later during the evening, so we still have a lot of time to k.ill before that". Shad looked around, trying to get any ideas as to what they could do. Then his eyes settles on Grace's Pokeballs. He got an idea. "Hey Grace, what do you say about having a battle against me? There is supposed to be a Pokemon Center nearby, so we could go and get your Pokemon all healed up, and then have a battle! What do you say?".

“That sounds great.” I Said putting Charizard’s ball in my bag. 

 

 

 

((To save time I will time skip to after my Pokémon are healed.))

 

Shad and I then walked out of the Pokémon Center. I looked around and saw a battle field near by. “Look Shad.” I said pointing to it. We took off for it running. The field was cooler up close. Shad stood at one end I was at the other. I smiled and took out my first ball. I threw it into the air and out came my first Pokémon. It landed on the sandy field “Grubbin!” It yelled ready to fight

They arrived at a sandy battle field, and they both took their positions. Grace was the first one to send out a pokemon, and she sent out her Grubbin. Looking at her with a determined gaze he dug up one of his Pokeballs. Rotom had settled down on his shoulder and had started recording the battle. "Grubbin huh? Well I'm picking Lychee!" Shad said, and threw Lychee's Pokeball. She came out of her ball with a flash, and landed on the ground, looking into the eyes of her opponent. "Use Peck!" Shad yelled, and before Grubbin could react, Lychee had flown right up to him and struck him hard with the attack. She flew right back to her position after that, waiting for her opponents move.

(( This is the link https://pokemonshowdown.com/damagecalc/ . I will put how much damge in percentages it did after each attack.))

 

Grubbin got hit with a peck attack (40%) “No Grubbin!” I yelled. “String shot!” Grubbin shot out string and it tied Lycheen (I know I misspelled it) all up. Lycheen was stuck and couldn’t move very fast (In this RP attacks like String Shot will make it so the opponent can’t Dodge for a 2 turns and when attacking it is easier for the other Pokémon to dodge.) Lycheen couldn’t move at all (also we are going to go by Animie battling and we’re it doesn’t always have to be one person attacks and then the next and then the first and so on but please only 2 attacks at once unless the opponent is asleep or tied up with string) so I yelled out “Vice Grip!” Grubbin charged for Lycheen and used Vice Grip (27%) by now Lycheen was free put a little slow.

Shad looked at Lychee worried when he saw the Grubbin attack her with String Shot and then use Vice Grip on her. Luckily the attack made it so that most of the string had broken off of her, but he could see some silky threads hanging onto her wings. "Use Growl!" He commanded, and Lychee growled at the Grubbin. It quickly looked at her fearfully, so the attack worked. "Now use Peck!". Lychee flew up and dove down towards Grubbin. A few more Pecks and it would faint.

Lychee used Peck (40%) I knew one more hit would finish Grubbin. “String Shot!” I yelled and Grubbin rapped Kychee up. “Now Vice Grip!” Grubbin with all his might charged at Lycheen and used the attack. (30%) I knew Grubbin couldn’t win. All most all the String was gone but there was still some left. As Shad yelled a command (your next move) I yelled “Counter it with Vice Grip.”

The Peck hit, and Shad could see from Grace's expression that she knew Grubbin wouldn't make it. One more attack and Grubbin would faint. Now Shad was starting to gain confidence, seeing how well Lychee was doing. She had barely lost half of her health, and even after the String Shot, she was still outspeeding Grubbin. Grace yelled to Grubbin to use String Shot on Lychee again, and she was wrapped in strings once more. However because she was in the air, some of it missed her and she could still fly, although not that greatly. She lost some altitude, which gave Grubbin the chance to attack her with another Vice Grip. She wriggeled her way out of Grubbin's grasp, and flew up, preparing for Shad's orders. Shad grinned. "Use Peck! You've almost got it!" He yelled, and with that Lychee dove down, her beak aimed for her target. But as she was nearing Grubbin, Grace ordered it to counter the move with a Vice Grip. Grubbin jumped up, and the two Pokemon collided, both taking damage (Grubbin 20%) (Lychee 30%). Lychee flew away back towards Shad after the attack, landing on the ground with her wings spread out. She was exhausted, but it was worth it. They both saw how Grubbin fell back onto the ground, fainted. "Good job Lychee! You did it!" Shad yelled to his pokemon, and ran over to her to pick her up. Rotom stayed where Shad had been, continuing with filming. Lychee gave him a weak smile as he held the pokemon in his hands. "You're really tired, aren't you?" he asked. Lychee nodded, laying down on her stomach on his hands. "Alright, you get some rest. Me and Nightshade will take care of the rest, okay?". Lychee nodded, and pecked her ball which Shad was holding out to her. She went inside, and Shad rose up. He went back to his place, and took out Nightshade's Pokeball. He let out the Rowlet, and with a flash Nightshade was released from his ball. He koo'd, and turned his head 180 degrees so that he was facing Shad's face. Shad snorted, but kept himself from laughing. "Alright Nightshade, it's your turn to battle" he said, and Nightshade turned his head back towards the field.

Both Pokémon were defeated. “Return Grubbin.” I Said holding out the ball as Grubbin went in. “Lend me your power, go Rowlet?” I Said throwing the Pokeballinto the air. Rowlet flew out and circled the battle field twice before landing “Use Peck!” I yelled and Rowlet took flight and pecked Rowlet (45%) “SUPER EFFECTIVE!” Rotom yelled. Nightshade was weakens by the Attack and I knew Rowlet could win.

 

 

 

((I sent you a message titled “Pokémon” there I will keep track of levels, moves and more. Tell me what level your Pokémon are. My Grubbin is as of right now a level 4 and Rowlet is a level 8. He is that level because of the battle against Grubbin and the training we did that morning. When we battle at the festival Grubbin will most likely grow to level 5.))

((I'm sorry for not posting lately. Things have been a bit hectic and I haven't been able to really be in the forums as much as usually. But I haven't forgotten about this roleplay, so you don't have to worry about that. I won't be able to post now or in a day or so (most likely), so you'll still have to wait a bit. I also want to apologize for being impatient myself. Whenever I woke up and went into the forums, expecting there to be a new post and seeing that there wasn't, I became afraid, thinking that you had forgotten about the roleplay. I tried to just let it be and wait for you to get back, but instead I always just bumped the thread. I'm pretty sure that by doing that, I came off as impatient and rude, and I'm sorry for that. I hope you understand. Once again, I'm sorry for not telling you earlier about this.

Also, going off topic for a second, Happy Snoggletog!))

Rowlet was the first to attack, and he hit good. Nightshade flew backwards, managing to land on his feet even after the super effective attack. Shad knew that Nightshade wasn't as high of a level as Rowlet, so he didn't know Peck. All he could do was Tackle the opponent until he could do no more. Sending Lychee out after defeat would be no good either. While she still had some fight left in her, she was too tired in order to make use of that. So now Shad just had to improvise. His gears turned in his head while his gaze was locked on Nightshade who was waiting for orders. Suddenly his eyes lit up, and gave a nod of approval to himself. "Use Leafage on the ground!". Nightshade turned his head towards Shad and gave him a look of confusion. "I know what I'm doing. I just need you to trust me" he whispered loudly enough for Nightshade to hear. Nightshade "shrugged", and flew up in the air, creation a vortex of glowy green leaves above his head before sending them to the ground. The dry dirt and sand stirred at contact, creating a big dust cloud. Nightshade's eyes lit up in immediate realization, and gained a mischievious glint to them. "Tackle!" Shad yelled, and Nightshade complied. He dove down in great speeds, and aimed right towards the green-blue Rowlet (27%). The Tackle struck Rowlet, and Nightshade flew out of the cloud before going back, flying around so that Rowlet would not see where he was. Shad's face gained back that grin of accomplishment as the gears in his head were working at full speed. Nightshade had an advantage in not only the element of surprise, but camoflage as well. He posessed the same light brown color that the dust cloud had, and Rowlet unfortunately stood out of the dust with his green coat. "Tackle again!" Shad yelled, and Nightshade continued circiling Rowlet before going for the attack, claws stretched out.

((This came out much later than it was supposed to, and I'm sorry for that))

I knew Shad was about to

I knew Shad was about to strike “Wait. Wait.” I Said then I saw NightShade’s claws “Leafage!” Rowlet quickly turned and fired a Leafage (20%) Nightshade was standing up or trying to anyways “Peck Let’s Go!” Rowlet spread his wings and flew at Nightshade but the brown Rowltet dredged and went into the dust fog. “Rowlet fly above the fog!” I yelled and Rowlet flew up.

This had quickly escalated into an intense battle. Rowlet seemed to catch the sight of Nightshade's claws just in the nick of time, and dodged, using Leafage on Nightshade which caused him to lose his momentum. Rowlet tried to take use of this opening and went for a Peck, but Nightshade was quickly able to take cover in the dustcloud. To Shad's dismay Grace had caught wind of his plan and ordered Rowlet to fly higher up, out of the dustclouds reaches. This didn't deter him the slightest, however. "Try stirring up the sand more! Then use Leafage to get it higher up!" Shad yelled. Nightshade wasted no time doing just that, and flew as close to the ground as he could, getting the sand and dust to fly up into the air. Once it seemed like there was enough, Nightshade used Leafage and directed it up towards Rowlet. The movement of the leaves flying caused the cloud to follow, and soon Rowlet was in the cloud once more, however it wasn't as thick as before. Well, they will just have to live with that. "Tackle!" Shad commanded, and Nightshade flew up in a straight arrow, aiming right towards Rowlet.

Nightshade was getting ready

Nightshade was getting ready to use Tackle. “Dive down and use tackle too!” Rowlet nodded and dove. Now both Rowlets were getting ready to hit each other with a Tackle. Both hit at the same time, both were now falling. “Rowlet!” Rowlet opened his eyes and flew over to Nightshade. “Peck!” Rowlet’s beak blew and he got ready to attack.

The two Rowlets were now falling from the impact, and Rowlet was able to recover quickly enough for him to attack Nightshade with a Peck. "Dodge it!" Shad yelled, the tension finally making way into his voice. Nightshade looked towards Rowlet, realizing what was about to happen. He flipped himself upright, the wind catching his wings just before Rowlet's Peck could graze him. Nightshade looked at Rowlet, something glistering in his eye for a split second, before he dove right after him. Nightshade tackeled Rowlet in mid-air (no not the move Tackle), grabbing hold of both of his wings. Shad looked at Nightshade in shock at what had just happened. Nightshade tried his best to pluck at Rowlet aggressively, while the two of them were spiraling rapidly towards the ground, which wasn't all that far away due to the fall from earlier. This was bad.

“Rowlet get out of there!” I yelled. Rowlet was stuck, he couldn’t escape “While Nightshade is close use peck!” I yelled Rowlet’s beak glowed and he was about to strike.

Rowlet struggeled against Nightshade's grip but managed to twist himself so that he could attack Nightshade with a Peck. Realizing this too late, Nightshade was hit with the Peck (45%) and released his grip on Rowlet from the impact. Shad's eyes widened, and ran to catch Nightshade. He jumped up, and folded his arms around the weakened pokemon. He came down with a thud, and had to rapidly blink his eyes because of the dust in the air. "You alright Nightshade?" He asked, and frowned when the response came off weak and hurt. "Hey, you did your best. It's alright. You just rest". He held the ball in one hand while Nightshade rested on his other arm. Nightshade only nodded as he went back into the ball.

“Is Nightdhade ok?” I asked panicky seeing the injuries. Rowlet quickly jaded next to Nightshade worried. “Kooooo?” It asked titling it’s head. I quickly ran over and took off my bag. I took out a potion and handed it to Shad “Will he be ok?” I asked “Koooo.” Rowlet said lowering his head in guilt

Shad looked over at Grace and Rowlet who had rushed over to his side. He accepted the potion and gave Grace a look of gratitude. She asked if Nightshade would be okay, and Rowlet voiced his own concern as well. Shad smiled assuringly, if not a bit bittersweetly as well, and put his hand on Rowlet's head to pet him comfortingly. "Nightshade will be just fine, he had no serious injuries. All we need is to go home and give him the potion, and he will be back in good health" he said, looking at Grace to give her an assuring smile as well. "How about we go over to my house? We could have some drinks and then maybe we could do something that interests both of us, maybe even talk about life in our home regions. I for certain wouldn't mind a glass berry juice". He stood up and looked over to Grace. "What do you say? Sound good?".

((After Grace's reply we could do a timeskip to when Kukui picks us up for the festival))

Shad and Imwere talking when we heard a knock at the door. “I’ll get it.” I Said walking over with Rowlet and Rotom. I opened it and there stood Kului. “Grace? Why are you at Shad’s house? Oh well, ready to head Out?” I nodded and Shad walked over. As we passed by my house Pichu scampered Out And tackled me. “Pichu!” I yelled “Chuu!” “I’ll see you tonight now go!” Pichu giggled and ran back to my mom standing on our porch “You do realize we are going too right?” My mom said “Ummm. Yeah I Totally knew.” I lied. Rowlet glared at Pichu’s childish behavior and landed on my arm proudly. “HURRY WE DONT HAVE MUCH RIME LEFT!” Rorom bellowed “Ok, ok jeesh.” I Said “IF YOU ARE LATE I WILL NEVER DORGIBE MYSELF! YOU NEED TO BE EARLY! ALWAYS! ALWAYS!” I mocked Rotom to Rowlet and Rowlet smiled and spread his wings. He took off flying and soared next to Nightshade turning his head at him.

Shad merely smiled at Grace's and her Rotom's antics. His Rotom was floating beside him, looking around as they walked. Nightshade was flying up ahead, not wanting to waste time yet still remaining mindful and gliding ahead at a moderate speed. Rowlet flew up beside him, and the two were flying side by side. Lychee had decided to stay in her ball, which Shad didn't blame her for. While she was sweet, he had found that she preferred to have her own peace and quiet. 

As they were walking, Shad looked over towards Grace. They would soon be at the festival, he could already spot the grass patch with the Pichu's. Which reminded him, having a Pichu didn't sound all too bad. Maybe he could catch one for himself after the festival. Pushing those thoughts aside, he cleared his throat. "Well, we're soon gonna be there. How are you feeling? Excited yet?".

“I am really excited!” I then looked at Rotom and he said “YOU ARE WALKING TO SLOW! THE ONLY WAY WE WILL GET THERE IN TIME IS IF YOU INCREASE YOUR SLEED BY 2.2 FEET PER HOUR! ARE YOU EVEN LISTENING TO ME?” “What sorry I didn’t hear you. What did you say?” I said jokingly “Realy?” He asked confused “Wait a minute you lied! LIER!” I laughed and asked “Rotom? If you are a Rotom then why don’t you go inside a Pokeball?” “Uhhhh. Because I am to good for Pokeballs.” “Because I am too good for Pokeballs.” I Said mockingly

Shad~

Shad smiled at Grace's excitement, but that smile quickly turned into a smug grin when she and Rotom started bickering. He did everything he could to not snort when Grace mimicked Rotom mockingly. He turned his head around and whispered to his Rotom. "Is he always like this?" He asked quietly, with the grin still on his face. Rotom turned to face him and lifted a questioning brow. "Who are you referring to zrrt?" He asked. Shad pointed towards the other Rotom with his thumb. "Oh, he. Yes, he's always been more straightforward and... Assertive, but why do you ask?". Shad shrugged. "Dunno. I guess I just found it rather odd yet fitting that he ended up with Grace. She's a nice person, but she's also a bit more straightforward from what I've picked up. Heck, even Rowlet is more of the no-nonsense type". Shad turned to look at Grace to hear her mock Rotom for being too good to be in a pokeball. His face twisted in laughter as he covered his mouth with his hand, and looked away so he could contain himself.

His eyes landed on one bush not too far away from them, and just as he was about to look away he noticed rustling in the leaves. This piqued his interest, and he walked over to the bush, not really caring about the fact that he was leaving everyone else. Rotom was quick to follow when he noticed Shad wasn't beside him anymore. "Shad, what are you-". "Shhh, I heard something". Rotom stopped and followed Shad's gaze over to the bush. "Do you think it's a wild pokemon?" He said in a hushed tone, and floated beside Shad. He nodded, and walked even closer until he was right in front of it. The bush had started to rustle even more, and Shad carefully reached with his hand over to the bush. He took hold of a few twigs and a handful of lush green leaves before pulling them out of the way, carefully. He looked inside, carefully, Rotom posting right beside his head. 

And right there was a small Pichu. It scratched it's ear before looking up with curious eyes. They all stared at each other until the Pichu slightly tilted it's head to the right, twitching it's left ear. Shad smiled softly at it, and brought his hand close to it. Pichu looked at it curiously, sniffed it, and then climbed on top. He brought his hand up, and with his other hand he petted the Pichu on it's head. It squealed happily, letting Shad pet it even more. "Hey there little guy" he said softly as he continued petting. "Hey, you found a Pichu! Nicely done!" Rotom praised him, still keeping his voice low. Shad stood up, and brought his hands together so that he and Pichu were looking at each other. "Hey Pichu, want to join us to the festival?". Pichu looked at him, shifting a little bit in thought. But after a moment, it nodded and Shad smiled. "Great! Welcome aboard!" he said with a smile before perching Pichu on his left shoulder. Pichu sat down and squealed in surprise when he started walking. 

"Sorry that I ran off! I found this Pichu though" Shad said when they caught up with the rest of the group. Rotom sighed and Pichu waved her little arm, greeting the others with a "Chuu!". Nightshade had comen back and landed on Shad's head, koo-ing before looking down at Pichu. Pichu looked back at him, and the two stared before switching places. Shad gave Nightshade an odd look, to which Nightshade just shrugged and poofed up his feathers and closed his eyes. "I swear you are so odd at times" Shad muttered with a smile and dramatically rolling his eyes.

Grace

“Rotom where are some strong Pokémon around here?” I whispered seeing Shad had a new Pokémon “Some down there are-“ I cut him off “Thanks.” I then quickly jumped off the cliff that underneath where fields. Rowlet noticed we where gone and flew down. “Hey Rowlet.” I then heard movement. “Get Ready Guys.” I Said. Then out of the brush came a Caterpie “Great.” I mumbled “Well this might get Grubbin up a level. Go Grubbin!” I Said throwing the Pokeball.” “Grubbin!” My Pokemon yelled “Stringshot!” Grubbin used a String Shot Attack and the Caterpie couldn’t move. Then surprisingly the Caterpie seemed to call for help. Then all of a sudden a grey Pokémon jumped out to protect Caterpie “Rockruff the Puppy Pokemon. It is a pure rock type. It’s weaknesses are Water, Fighting, Steel, Grass and Ground.” I nodded “Grubbin make sure Caterpie doesn’t escape!” “Rowlet go for Rockruff!” I yelled and Rowlet flew out from behind me and landed in front of Rockruff “Leafage!” I yelled and Rowlet attacked “Super Affective!” Rotom yelled. The Rockruff used Tackle and Rowlet was on the ground “While your close use Peck!” I yelled “Don’t! Flying types are weak to rock types!” Rotom warned but Rowlet had already preformed the move. “Leafage go!” I yelled and Rowlet flew up and leaf like things came out and attacked Rockruff. “Go Pokeball!” I yelled and I caought hate Rockruff! “Please Rockruff I need your help to beet Shad.” I whispered to the sphere. I flet a weird nod coming from inside. I quickly put the ball away hoping Shad wouldn’t notice I had another Pokémon. “Grubbin Return.” I then realized the Caterpie was still stuck “Rowlet cut Caterpie free.” Soon enough the small Pokémon slithered away. I barely had enough strength to pull myself out but I did. I ran over to the others and said “Sorry about that. I saw some weird movement but it was just a Caterpie.”

Shad hadn't even realized that Grace was gone until she came running back with Rowlet and Rotom following her. She said that she had seen movement but that it had only been a Caterpie. Shad looked at her for a moment. It was almost as she was trying to hide something from her, he was certain of it. But before he could pry further into that Kukui stopped and turned around. He hadn't even realized that the had been climbing the staircase, and now that he did he looked forward and smiled. The festival had just started, and there were people gathered around celebrating, laughing, and some even dancing. There were stands here and there that were selling things like traditional jewlery, fresh berries and juice, carved wood figures and other things. "Well, we're here! The Festivals looking great huh?" Kukui said, looking proudly at everything that was going on. Shad nodded with a smile, and both of his pokemon looked at everything in awe. Shad walked past Kukui and over to the masses, looking at the decorations and the stands. 

A tug at his hand made him turn around to see a familiar face. He smiled as Hau had that same grin on, and he turned around to face the boy completely. "Hey Hau! Nice to see you again!" Shad said. "Same! It's been a blast so far, and the real fun hasn't even started yet!" Hau said, and then noticed Pichu sitting on Shad's head. "Hey! You caught one too! Has the little one got a name yet?" Hau said, excited at the sight. Shad quickly shook his head. "I didn't catch her, I simply let her join us to the festival. Though I guess I could come up with a name to her" he said, and picked Pichu down from his head. He looked at her, and she looked back. And after a small moment, he decided. "What do you say of Naia?" He asked. Pichu looked up at Shad before nodding and smiling. "You just keep on coming up with real strange names, you know that?" Hau said, a tad amused tone laying his words. Shad looked back at him, and pouted. "What, are you saying that those are bad names?" He said with a fake hurt tone. Hau's amusement quickly faced away and he gained a panicked expression. He sure is expressive alright. "No, I didn't mean that at all! I just meant that they are very unique, that's all!" He said and waved his arms in front of him to further express what he was saying. Shad snorted and smiled at his friend. "I know, I was just teasing you" he said, and Hau gave him an unimpressed face before waving it off. "Oh well, let's forget about it. Where's Grace by the way? She was supposed to come too". Shad pointed back towards where they came from. "Unless she too ran off, she's still at the enterance with Kukui and her mom". Hau nodded, and they both began to weave through the masses.

"Is your mom coming too?" Hau asked while they were walking. Shad nodded. "Yeah, she said she would be here early. She wasn't at home when me and Grace were there, must have gone to the city for sightseeing before heading over here" he said, avoiding a woman just in time, but accidentally bumped into Hau instead, causing the two of them to lose balance and almost crash to the ground. "Oh, sorry!" Shad said, offering a hand to Hau who had fallen with his back on the side of one of the houses. "It's alright! It alway gets like this during the festivals, so it was almost bound to happen" he said causally, accepting Shad's hand and pulling himself up. "You're not hurt are you?" He asked, and looked to see any injuries. Hau stopped him in his tracks. "Nope, not in the slightest!" He said, putting on a smile. Shad let out a small sigh of relief. "Good. I should probably put Nightshade in his ball, it's too crowded" he said, taking out the ball and letting Nightshade go in. "Yeah, that's for the best. The battle won't start anytime son anyway" Hau said with a shrug. Shad nodded, and checked to see if Naia was alright. She was clinging to his hair, starteled by the sudden fall. "Oh, sorry. You got scared didn't you?" He said, and lifted her in his hands. Naia nodded, and looked up at him. "You know, maybe she wants to be caught. She seems very relaxed around you" Hau piped in, catching Shad's attention before turning back towards her. "What do you say? Wanna join my team?" He asked her. She looked at him in thought for a moment before saying "Pichuu!" Excitedly. "I'll take that as a yes" Shad said smiling, and took out an empty pokeball. Naia headbutted it, and went in with a flash. The ball shook a few times, and then it clicked. Shad smiled, and put the ball away.

I was busy looking at

I was busy looking at Rockruff’s ball when I noticed Shad was gone. I quickly put up the ball and walked around. I finally found him standing next to Hau “Hi Hau!” I Said “Hey Grace.” He replied

 

 

Later that night

 

 

”Today we have a very Speicel battle between two trainers that started their journey a couple days ago! On the left side we have Shad! On the right side we have Grace! The winner of this battle will fight Hau! Ready? Battle begin!” The announcer said. I reached into my bag and pulle our a Pokeball. “Good luck.” I whipspered to it “I choose you, go Grubbin!” I then threw the sphere into the air and out came from a beam of light my Grubbin “Let’s give them a fight to remember!” I yelled “Grubbin!” Grubbin agreed. I smiled and looked at Shad waiting for his choice. I then smiled confidently knowing two of his Pokémon are flying types which are weak to rock types like Rockruff.  It wasn’t until now that I realized Rockruff doesn’t know any rock type moves! He only knows Leer, Tackle, Sand Attack and Bite! I shook it off having hope in Rockruff.

Shad~

The two of them rose up to the wooden battlefield, each on their respective sides. The crowd was cheering in anticipation as Hala announced their names, and who the winner would get to battle. Shad looked down to his right and saw Hau amongst the people, and gave him a smile. Hau noticed this, and smiled back, giving him a thumbs up. Looking back towards Grace, he saw that she had already sent out her first Pokemon, which was Grubbin. Though something felt strange. Grace had this confident smile on her face, as if she had something he didn't, something that could possibly aid her towards victory. He was getting more and more suspicios of her "Caterpie story". But enough of that. He dug up Lychee's ball, and threw it up into the air. She swiftly bursted out of her ball with a flash, and flew over to Shad's side. He smiled. Bad feeling or not, this match would be in his favour. "Peck!" He yelled loud enough for the audience to hear too, and Lychee quickly flew up to Grubbin, and struck with the Peck (45%). Grubbin flew backwards from the hit, and Lychee flew up into the air, circiling. The crowd cheered at the hit, a sign that the battle had now truly begun. "Peck again!" Shad yelled, and Lychee went for a dive towards Grubbin.

“Stringshot Let’s Go!” I

“Stringshot Let’s Go!” I yelled and white String came out of Grubbin and rapped around Lechi. “Vice Grip” I yelled and Grubbin kept forwards and used Vice Grip (35%) almost all the String was gone “Dig underground!” (Not the move just him going underground and isn’t attacking from underground) Grubbin nodded and quickly dug down and made a tunnel

Shad~

Lychee was wrapped in strings and got hit with a Vice Grip from Grubbin. Then the little bug dug underground, where no one could see it. Is that even allowed? Shad asked himself as he thought of what to do. The Vice Grip had removed most of the strings, but Lychee still had threads wrapped around her head and wings. "Go after it and use Peck!" Shad commanded, and Lychee flew high up in the air before doing a backflip, and diving down into the tunnel.

It was quite fascinating how fast Grubbin was able to dig. Lychee was, thankfully, much smaller than Grubbin so she could fly in the tunnel without a problem. But soon her target came into view, and just as instructed, she flew towards Grubbin in a straight line at high speeds with her beak aimed at her target.

Grace yelled for Grubbin to use Vice Grip and Shad suddenly realized what was about to happen. "Dodge it!" he yelled. Lychee was taken by surprise as Grubbin suddenly used String Shot on her, and then charged with Vice Grip. Brought down from the previous attack, Grubbin's Vice grip managed to hit her (25%), but just barely. Not ready to give up just yet, she flew back up, and attacked him with Peck (45%). Now Grubbin was down to 10%, and she charged with all her might to do the finishing blow.

“Get out of there!” I yelled

“Get out of there!” I yelled and Grubbin dug a way out just in time as he kept out I pulled out his Pokeball “Return!” He then wne ringside his ball “I might need you later.” I whispered as I put the ball up “It’s your turn to shine! Go Rowlet!” I yelled and threw the next ball. Out came soaring ,y Rowlet. “Dive down there and attack it with Peck!” Rowlet dove down the hole and launched a peck attack (45%) I knew one more attack would do it “Finish this with Leafage!” Rowlet Then Shot Out leafs and the hit Pikipeck

Shad~

Everything that happened came so quickly that Shad didn't have time to react. Suddenly Rowlet had comen out and defeated Lychee. Quickly digging up her pokeball, Lychee went inside so she could rest. "Thanks, you did amazingly" he whispered to the ball before putting it away. Taking out another ball, he threw it. And out came Naia who squeaked happily when she landed on the platform. She looked at Rowlet with curious eyes. "Alright, use Thunder Shock!" Shad yelled, and Naia's sacs started to glow. She closed her eyes in concentration and sent the electricity flying at Rowlet. It hit him (29%). Realizing that Rowlet wasn't going to go down easily, he yelled to her hid next command: "Use Charm!". Naia looked up at Rowlet with big eyes, doing her very best to look irresistably cute.

OK, I'll change that. I thought that it was okay for her to know Volt Tackle since it's an egg move))

(I thought I put in the rules that if you wanted a Pokémon to have an egg move you have to breed it yourself or have someone give you the egg. I will check.)

(I guess I didn’t.

(I guess I didn’t. Sorry)

 
Rowlet glanced down at Pichu trying to look cute. Rowlet glared at it seeing it’s childish behavior. Rowlet then pretend to fall in love with it and landed near it. “Now!” I yelled and Rowlet used Tackle (I put the chances of it working into a website and it said the move failed. Also (30%) “Good work now use Leafage!” I yelled. Rowlet charged up leaves and then shot them out.
