The story of my life.
WHAT YOUR ABOUT TO READ IS REALLY NOT IMPORTANT!
Hi, my name is Tyru Ookami.
I was born in Odale Town, but never quite fit in with the other kids around; most of the time I was playing in my room or reading books about Pokemon. I was fascinated by Dark types; there was just something about them that I was attracted to. Whenever I would go wandering the city, I would hang out with the Poochyenna while the other kids spent time with the Zigzagoon. They called me weird and stuff like that, but I didn’t care. Poochyenna were way cooler then Zigzagoon. My family was a little weird, My dad is a famous traveler, he was never home, and my mom was a elite 4 but stopped to take care of me.
When I was seven, a girl moved in next door, her name was Suki. She was about the same age as me, and because she also loved Pokemon we became the best of friends. We would study them together, and when I asked her what her favorite type was, she responded ‘I like them all.’ We promised to journey together, agreeing that someday we’d be the best team in the region.
On my tenth birthday, Dad let me come over to Iron Island, in the Sinnoh region, he gave me an egg as a birthday present.... I cherished it and it hatched it only 1 day later, it was a Slakoth, but not the normal lazy slakoth this one was pumped with energy. Suki hatched her pokemon 1 day later.
The same day Slakoth hatched at home, he jabbed and injured my eyes. Unfortunately I had to delay my journey a whole year so they could heal properly. Even then they had sustained some serious damage, so my sight was never the same for the rest of my life. I could sense how sorry Slakoth was almost every day; he never left my side. Soon I forgave him, it’s not like he meant to jab my eyes. This was the Time I discovered my powers, I could sense the emotions, basicly see around me,
As I grew up this power became stronger and stronger eventually leading me into controling the aura inside me and using it for my own purposes. I used it to sense my pokemons injuries and weakspots so that I could treat them with the best of care. Me and my partners became linked to one another, they understood every move I made without ever questioning my ability to control them, however, traded pokemon never seemed to obey me, no matter how many badges I collected, they would refuse to bond, it was understandable ofcourse. But I will never trade pokemon ever again.
Once I got better and could start battling, my journey got off to a rocky start. Everyone kept making fun of my accident and my little Slakoth. All the other trainers laughed and jeered at us, even Suki! That’s what really crushed me, her betrayal felt like a knife in my back.
Once I’d beaten the entire city, I ran into May. May's father ,Proffesor Birch, was the Professor for the region, so I’d have to go meet him for my own Poke’dex. While I was there, he also wanted to give me my own ‘official’ starter Pokemon. Other trainers had already been through, so I was given a treecko.
Just outside the lab, I ran into Suki. She apologized all over the place for the mean things she’d said to and about me, but I didn’t answer. At that moment, I didn’t really care, either. I still felt that knife in my back. Then she asked if she could journey with me, after all that! I swiftly responded ‘No.’ I turned and walked away, smiling as a tear rolled down my face. I was heartbroken, but had gained my revenge.
Three years of traveling passed. My Pokemon and I had wandered through. Hoenn and Sinnoh, and it was about time to head to Unova. In those three short years, I had defeated Steven, the champion of Hoenn; and Cynthia, champion of Sinnoh. My Slakoth had evolved into an Slaking, and Treecko into a Sceptil.
Now there’s a great team.
2 years passed. friends came, friends went away.... i never had a travel partner exept Slaking. he never liked the pokeball so he walked besides me, I wasn't in a hurry. so him being a bit slow wasn't a big problem.
On the boat bound for Unova, I ran into Suki. It had been a long time since we’d seen each other, and boy did she look different.
I felt a little happy to see a familiar face, it had been three years. After catching up a bit, she asked if I would like to battle, to see just how strong I’d gotten. I accepted, and quickly won. Although the battle was short, it was the most fun I’d had in a very long time. Afterwards, she asked if I would reconsider traveling with her. I had to say no, I had gotten used to traveling alone and a travel partner now would just feel strange. Surprisingly, she was okay with it. She said that we would meet again when fate decided it would be so, and left.
When the boat docked, I met a person named Alder, the region’s champion. He asked if I was going to challenge the league, and I replied yes. He asked about my life , and I told him the story. He laughed, “Sometimes a Pokemon doesn’t know its own power.” While he shaked Slaking's hand, I couldn’t help but think ‘What a cook.’
After Alder and I went our separate ways, I met Bianca in Nuvema town. She claimed to be the Professor’s assistant, and we’d have to talk to her in order to get started in this region. She was nice enough to lead us to the Professor of Unova: Juniper. From her I received the Unova Pokedex, and a little Oshawott. Time went by, weeks of training and skirmishes with Team Plasma followed. Finally it was time to face the Elite Four and Alder, but someone named N Harmonia had beaten me to it! He was trying to take over Unova, and my status as Champion! I couldn’t allow such crimes. The battle was rough, but my Pokemon had won. Because I’d struggled to beat N, Alder said that I’d needed yet more training.
Five days later, My Slaking and I got into a fight with a hoard of wild Sawks
Though my friend fought hard. His injuries were to severe. and he passed away when I reached the pokemon center. I couldn't believe it. My very first partner was gone forever.... With tears in my eyes i flew to my hometown and buried him on the same spot it hatched. My dad helped me dig the grave... He said: "Well. I can replace it for you if you want." I refused, No one could replace it, ever. I called out my pokemon to bid my old friend a nice goodbye, We all cried a little. As my pokemon helped me little by little to fill in the hole. When the hole was filled up, I bursted out in tears and collapsed to the ground. It started raining, Not that I cared one little bit. neither did my pokemon. We just stood there as my Gardevoir sang a song for our fallen hero, he'd protected me from those sawks, by paying the ultimate price. I didn't battle for weeks afterwards. Every single one of my pokemon from all my adventures were send in... paid there respects, then went on to look for something nice to put on the grave.
Even my coldhearted sceptile, who say Slaking as his rival and never liked him that much, spend days looking for a nice berry to plant there.
But, nevertheless I continued with my journey; you can’t dwell to long in the past. I began to look for a replacement, someone to fill that empty slot. Soon I found such a Pokemon, a small Deino. After a long time of training, he was at a suitable level. My team and I continue training, in memory of Slaking
The spirit of my partners will burn for eternity! Nothing will stop me from becoming the best there is! Any who stand in my way will be defeated, one by one!
Well, that’s my story, so far.
