Re: Orange Islands Adventure
Chapter 4- The First Catch!
"I wonder why he was so quick to run off" pondered Nick.
"Thatís why" Shawn pointed out. There was a storming brewing. The sky grew gray. Thunder shook the ground, "We better find a Pokemon Center".
They raced off in hope of finding the Pokemon Center. As it started to poor down raining. Nick let Nurse Joy heal his Umbreon. He remembered the night when he watched Umbreonís shadow grow bigger as it evolved to save him. Because of him seeing that shadow with amazement he decided to call Umbreon... Shadow!
Shawn and Nick got something to eat. They sat by a window. Nick chowed down on a huge double patty poke-burger, served only at the best Pokemon Centers! The rain continued to poor down. Nick looked out the window to see a Squirtle and its trainer, they were actually training in the rain!
The trainer had a whip and was whipping the Squirtle. A bolt of lightening struck the ground nearby. Squirtle got frightened. Nick felt sorry for it. The trainer kept whipping the poor turtle pokemon. Squirtle couldnít take anymore and fell to the ground. The trainer kicked it and came inside the Pokemon Center.
"Whats your deal?" Nick shouted, standing up.
"What?!" the ugly trainer asked.
"Why did you do that to Squirtle" questioned Nick, wanting an answer right away.
"Are you kidding me, that stupid pokemon isnít good for anything!" the trainer huffled.
The trainer walked away. Nick ran outside. Shawn ran behind me. Nick picked up Squirtle out of the mud. He carried it inside the Pokemon Center.
"Nurse Joy, I need you to check this Squirtle. I found it outside and it looks like its in bad shape" explained Nick.
"Ok, Iíll see what I can do" Joy said back.
After they finished their meal, Shawn and Nick got Shadow and waited in the Emergency Room. After a hour wait, Joy came out and announced that Squirtle was alright. Squirtle popped out from behind Joy.
"Squirtle just had some burns and cuts, other than that it just got physically tired... which is what made it black out" Joy explained the story.
"Thatís great, what now?" pondered Nick, know that he knew that Squirtle would be just fine.
"Well you can take the Squirtle but thatís up to him really" Joy gave off a pretty grin.
Squirtle wobbled to Nick and shook Nick's hand. Almost like Squirtle was just giving a thanks for saving it.
"You hungry Squirtle?" asked Nick with a smile.
SQUIRTLE!" screamed the little water pokemon.
Nick had unwrapped a package of Pokemon food for water pokemon. Squirtle seemed to like it...
As they sat down at the table, Shawn and Nick discussed what they would do with Squirtle. Shadow and Squirtle seemed to be getting along. Squirtle tapped on a pokeball that was empty that hung on Nick's belt. Squirtle got in a fighting pose. Then Squirtle started throwing punches.
"I get it, you want me to battle you and if I win I can keep you?" Nick jumped up.
Squirtle nodded its big turtle head.
Shadow head-butted Squirtle. Squirtle jumped back up off the ground and used Water Gun. The blast of water knocked Shadow down. Shadow crawled her way back up. Shadow used Swift. The flying stars streamed out across the muddy meadow in front of the Pokemon Center.
Squirtle used Water Gun to knock the shooting stars away. Squirtle then used Skull Bash. Its hard head knocked Shadow dizzy. Shadow was able to shake it off though and fought back with a Faint Attack. Shadow dodged towards Squirtle then all the sudden showed up ramming into Squirtle's side.
Squirtle tucked itself inside its shell. Then it started spinning super fast. Squirtle used its Rapid Spin. Squirtle spun right towards Shadow but Shadow was able to jump to the side before it was hit. Squirtle came back around though and nailed Shadow from behind.
Squirtle landed on the ground and came out from hiding. Shadow launched a Confuse Ray. The ray caught Squirtle. The blue turtle pokemon wobbled back and forth wondering where it was. Thatís when Shadow used Iron Tail. Shadow's tail glew sliver and hit Squirtle right in the head.
"Ok this is it!" Nick said, grabbing a pokeball that was given to him by Prof. Ivy.
The pokeball was set free towards Squirtle. The ball sucked the pokemon inside. The ball wobbled to the right and then left. Then it wobbled to the right and left again. Then it stopped....... it wobbled to the right.... PING! The ball locked. Nick had captured his first pokemon!
"Welcome to the team friend" Nick congratulated, holding the pokeball that contained a new friend to have on his journey threw the Orange Islands!
