Adventure Log 003
I picked up the red-and-white Pokeball. My newly caught Charmander was inside. I decided to call her Fireflower. I recalled Poe, a purple ghost with stubby hands, feet, and a tail back to her Pokeball. I was ready for my next Battle Frontier challenge, having proven myself to Scott. As I walked to the Battle Frontier, a Blond kid with green clothes was running to a giant tower.
I followed that kid and saw a strange man on top. He had a grey mask and in his hands was a white Pokemon with a yellow star on its head. A third eye on the Pokemon's stomach opened and a strange light enveloped the Frontier. The island was breaking apart! I tried to help, but a portal opened and sucked me inside. I was back in the Gateway Between Worlds.
Suddenly, every enemy I've ever seen before ran out of the red-and-white portal. I curled into a ball to avoid being trampled. They entered every portal in sight and vanished. I wanted to look for an idea of where would be the best place to strike, so I sent out Gengar. Poe used her ghost powers to search for tracks in the darkness.
"What do you see?" I asked.
"Every 'two or more of a kind' Pokemon have come through here," she replied.
I recalled my Pokemon and decided to go through a scroll portal. As I approached, the scroll opened and revealed red squares. I figured it must be in a building. I stepped through the portal and breathed the fresh air. I saw a giant mountain with five faces on it. Four were men, but the last one was female. I began to get an idea of where I was. I looked down and saw a boy and girl. The girl had pink hair, and the boy had blond hair. I noticed they had blue fabric on their foreheads, the fabric had a gleaming piece of metal. I had landed in Konoha, the Village Hidden in the Leaves. I jumped up excitedly, as I hit the ground, I heard a crack. I looked down and saw that I was on a tile roof. The tile slid and I fell to the ground.
The boy and girl pulled the tile off of me. Upon further inspection, I could see that they were Naruto Uzumaki and Sakura Haruno. I cleared the dust off of my face and out of my hair. I found myself making eye contact with Sakura. It was a bit awkward because I didn't know what she was thinking. I saw here eyes dart to a Naruto and then to a piece of glass with her reflection on it. I knew she was staring at me because of my eye color. For some reason, people thought green eyes were weird. Thankfully, Naruto broke the silence.
"Who are you?" he asked.
"I...I'm..uh," I stammered, interrupted by the growling of my stomach.
"Why don't we take this conversation somewhere else?" Sakura said, still staring at my eyes, "Why don't we go for Ramen? My treat."
For the first time in a while, I thought about food. Naruto suddenly began to beam. We walked across the dirt and I looked at the buildings. The doors slid open and the walls were plain white. I watched the different people running about. We reached a kiosk-like building. There was a sign written in kanji. Thankfully, there was a translation and it read: "Ichiraku Ramen." We walked under the green paper lanterns and sat on some stools. We could see them make the food from the counter. Two people were working, one was a middle-aged man with black hair. The other was a young lady with brown hair. They were both wearing white aprons. I read the menu carefully and made my decision.
"Beef Miso with Pork," Naruto and I ordered simutaneously.
"And for the lady?" the man asked.
"I'll take the Diet Ramen please," Sakura spoke politely.
After a few minutes of painful waiting, the sweet aroma and sight of our food was within inches away from my mouth. The Beef Miso and Pork had brown broth and noodles with pink pieces of meat with brown fat "sweating" from them. The Diet Ramen was a tan liquid with radish, onions, and carrots, all shaped like noodles. I looked for a fork or spoon and saw a tin cup. Naruto and Sakura pulled out white packages from the cup. They tore open the package, revealing two brown sticks. They ripped the sticks apart and held them like a pencil. I suddenly remebered that they used chopsticks. I pulled out a set of my own and began eating. Between bites, we introduced ourselves and I explained every last detail of my mission; Orochimaru, the ShrOUds, the Mecha-storms, and any other important pieces of information. I was rewarded with juicy information from Sakura.
"These 'Pokemon' creatures," she said, "I think some burst into the village. The other shinobi caught them and caged them."
"What!?" I shouted, "You can't cage Pokemon. They are partners with special abilities. We have to save them. First of all though, gather any shinobi who might be interested in this mission, we need all the help we can get."
We split up and I worked on a training course to test their abilites. I set up dummies, puzzles, and many other training devices. Naruto and Sakura brought eight shinobi. The first was a boy with a ponytail and grey jacket. Even though I knew what he was capable of, I decided to play stupid.
"Name?" I asked.
"Shikamaru Nara," he replied in a depressed tone of voice.
"Special skills?" I requested, writing down on a piece of paper.
"I can bend my shadow at will to control anything caught in it," he yawned, "And I have an IQ of 200."
"Really?" I said, pulling out a strategie map, "Solve this situation: The four of us are ambushed by six enemies that specialize in knife attacks. Naruto only has enough energy to create three clones. Sakura has enough strength to instantly kill one enemy with her Taijutsu."
Shikamaru moved the figures respresenting each of us. He implied that he caught three of the enemies with his Shadow Possesion Jutsu and threw a kunai with a symbol on it at another's feet. Naruto creates three clones and has them kill the trapped enemies. Sakura attacks another and kills it. I use my sword to decapitate the fifth of them. I moved the remaining piece to attack and kill Shikamaru, but as I moved him over the kunai, Shikamaru explained the symbol was a paper bomb that killed the final enemy. I decided to pass him, even though I couldn't think of a challenging puzzle. Next was Choji Akimichi, he was a chubby boy with brown hair and a green vest. His ability was that he can grow larger and crush opponents. He was able to pass a test involving smashed open a boulder.
"Next?" I asked, looking at the next ninja.
"I'm Tenten," the girl replied, "I have a mastery of any weapon."
I thought a moment and told her we didn't need another weapons master. She stomped off. This was followed by two more shinobi whose techniques would be of no use to me. Both wore grey jackets. One had a dog that could perform Ninjutsu and the other could control insects. I never liked bugs and the dog peed on my shoes. Next was a boy with black hair and a green jumpsuit.
"I am Rock Lee, Master of the Iron Fist," he said, smashing open a boulder with ease.
"I appreciate your enthusiasm," I told him, "You seem like you could do well on this mission."
The next two were cousins. Both wore white sweaters, had black hair, and big white eyes. Their clan name was Hyuga. They possesed powerful eyesight, useful for searching. They both passed seeing as though they practiced the same style, they fought completely differently. I looked at my new team. We were ready to free the Pokemon and find that portal.
