Hello! So, I saw this forum, and because I thought it might be interesting, I decided that I should do some casual runs as well as some challenge runs. Besides, it'd be nice to have some more 'fun' runs when I get stressed from school and challenges.
Now, I realize that we aren't allowed to use restrictions here, but I would like to challenge myself on these runs in terms of storytelling and format. I plan on trying to write the best stories I can, while also having a ton of fun! I hope that through this run and my other two casual runs starting soon (From Today... and As The World Goes On) that I can become better at Pokémon and at writing. I hope you enjoy them!
Also, for this story, I'll be going with script format.
Chapter 0 - A Fresh Start For Me!
The camera zooms in on a girl, Grey, packing a backpack in her house. She's smiling to herself and cheerfully humming to herself. The camera pans over to her bedroom door. Mom has just come home.
Mom (opening the door): "Grey! When you're finished, could you come out here, please? I need to talk to you about something."
Grey (looking up at Mom): "Sure! Just give me one more minute."
Grey (narrating): That's me. I'm Grey Collins, an 18 year old girl. The other day, me, my mom, and the Pokémon Professor talked, and the Professor agreed to give me a Pokémon! I'm really excited!
Grey finishes packing, and slings her backpack onto her back. She walks out into the living room and looks over to her mom.
Grey (excited): "What did you need to talk to me about?"
Mom (happy): "Well, unfortunately, Juniper told me that she couldn't come, but she does want to give you a Pokémon today! She asked me to tell you to look for her assistant, Bianca. Bianca is apparently wearing all green, and she's supposed to meet you on the overlook."
Grey: "Really? That's great! I'll get going then!"
Mom: "Alright. Have fun, sweetheart!"
Grey leaves her house to head up to the outlook, but before she can, she runs into her friend, Hugh.
Grey: "Oh! Hey, Hugh! How are you doing today?"
Hugh (serious): "Never mind that. I heard you were getting a Pokémon today. I need you to do me a favor."
Grey (quizzical): "Sure! What is it?"
Hugh (seemingly upset): "I need someone to rely on. And since you're getting a Pokémon now, and you're the person I trust the most, I want you to be that person. I can't tell you too much, but can I rely on you?"
Grey (confused smile): "Sure. You can always count on me."
Hugh (smiling): "Great! Now, where do you need to go to get your Pokémon?"
Grey: "I was told that I was meeting a girl named Bianca on the overlook. You wanna come with?"
Hugh: "Sure. I'm curious to see what you'll choose."
Grey and Hugh walk through town, and go up the stairs to the overlook, where Bianca is waiting for them.
Bianca (surprised): "Oh! You must be Grey!"
Grey (happy smile): "Yup, that's me!"
Bianca pulls out a glass case, and opens it up, revealing three Poké Balls.
Bianca: "You need to choose one of these three."
Grey looks at the three Poké Balls, and picks up one.
Grey: "This is Tepig, right?"
Bianca: "Yes! So is that what you're going with?"
Grey (nodding excitedly): "Yeah! I'll name him Caramel. Caramel is my favorite sweet, after all..."
Bianca (happy): "Okay! Here's a Pokédex for you as well!"
Bianca hands Grey a Pokédex. She looks over and sees Hugh.
Bianca: "Oh! Do you want a Pokédex too? I've got an extra one!"
Hugh shrugs, and Bianca hands him one.
Bianca: "Grey, could you meet me on the route just outside of town? I need to show you something!"
Grey: "Sure. I'll meet you there!"
Bianca leaves the outlook, leaving Grey and Hugh there.
Hugh: "Before you head off, I'd like to battle you. You mind?"
Grey: "Not at all!"
Turn One: Caramel uses Tackle and so does Oshawott.
