A/N: Hello, and welcome to Pokemon Periwinkle: It's Real! Welcome to the first arc of the story, which lasts for 58 chapters (59 according to the scroll box). I have constructed the story in a way in which you are not required to understand the first arc to enjoy the second one (which stars at chapter 59, 60 according to the scroll box). So if you're feeling lazy, you can skip the first arc, though I highly encourage you to read through it. You might enjoy it.
Well, thanks for coming and I hope you enjoy reading!
Arc 1: Begin
Chapter 1: The Tornado
Disclaimer: I don't own Pokemon. I only own my own characters and my plot.
"Yes!! It's here! It's finally here!" I cried as I tore the plastic off the box. Inside was a game that I had been waiting for, for nearly a year. "Pokemon: Periwinkle Version." I stated triumphantly. On the cover was a Torchic and Turtwig fighting each other with their special attacks. Beneath them were a Squirtle and a Chikorita engaged in similar combat. I quickly turned it over on its back to read the description.
'Become a Pokemon! Travel through both the Hoenn and Sinnoh regions while fighting trainers and avoiding getting captured. Counter the horrifying Team Blasters. Find out what they're up to and put them out of business for good, even as you go through many emotional and harsh experiences of your own.
Choose from an astonishing list of fifty pokemon to start out with. Find companions as you travel through cities, defeating gym leaders with your new friends. Link up with the world using wi-fi connection to find real time friends playing the game with you. You can also choose to play the game by yourself or with up to three other people near you. Get ready to jump into the Pokemon world!'
I held my breath as my eyes scanned the last few lines and picked up my cell phone. I ran through the contacts list and called my close friend, Rachel. "Hi Rachel, did you get the new Pokemon game yet?"
"Yeah, I got it like an hour ago. Why?" I noticed a confused tone in her voice.
"Read the back. You'll know why. Get over to the local hangout ASAP; we're going to be in this game together!" I responded excitedly, practically jumping off the walls. If there was anything I loved, it was a Pokemon game. People called me nerd and dork for that, but I didn't care, I LOVED Pokemon!
She paused before she began talking again. "Oh, I get it now. You going to call Gregor too? He'd love to join the game with us. I saw him at the game store picking it out so he's already got it too."
"Okay. I'll call him. Be thinking about your pokemon. I'll meet you there in about half an hour with Gregor. Bye!" I turned off the phone and then ran through it again until I found Gregor on the list.
I called him up and he agreed to meet with us to play the game. "It would be fun to go into the game with my friends anyway," he'd told me. I hung up the phone, just as excited as before, and picked up my Pikachu doll.
"See ya, Pikachi." I told it and held it in a tight hug. I then set it down with the rest of my Pokemon plushes. Pikachi always sat right beside my Growlithe doll, up in the front of all my dolls so I could see them easily. "Bye." I said to the rest and grabbed my backpack, sticking my gameboy and the new game into it.
Half an hour later, the three of us sat in front of the giant oak in a small park. Most teenagers hung out here and we were no exception. There was no one here right then so we didn't have to worry about being embarrassed with our Pokemon games.
"Are you guys ready?" I asked my two best friends in the world. They nodded in reply. We all turned on our games simultaneously. All the known starters came onto the screen. They moved into four groups of three, separating themselves by generation. The groups moved into the four corners and faced the center. They all began charging up attacks and released them at one another. The screen became covered with red, blue, and green colors. The screen then shined with a periwinkle color as the silhouette of a Lugia using Psychic appeared.
'Press Start,' the words blinked on the torso of the Lugia. We each slowly raised our heads from the game. "That was awesome." Gregor squeaked.
"Just wait 'till we actually start the game. Then we'll get to the awesome part." I countered.
"Well, we're not going to get anything done if we keep staring at each other." Rachel added. The clouds overhead became purple and seemed to rush with anger.
"Maybe we should go inside. The weather's not looking too good." I proposed innocently.
"Aww, is Princess Cecilia afraid of some purple clouds? I'll escort you to your castle." Gregor teased.
"Hey! You watch it!" I scowled, "I'm not scared, I just figured you guys would start being babies when something bad happened." I took my seat next to the tree and picked up my gameboy from where I had dropped it in my fury. "Now let's get started with this game."
We all pressed start. The screen went black and the first question came up. 'Are you playing by yourself or with friends?' We each selected the 'With friends' option. The next question came up, 'Are you a boy or a girl?' We each picked our gender respectively. The next question was, 'Pick the Pokemon you would like to play as.' The names of more than fifty pokemon came into view. "Oh… my… gosh." I rasped. There it was, Growlithe. My Growlithe. I couldn't wait to play as it.
"Who are you picking?" Rachel asked Gregor.
"I'm getting the best pokemon ever, of course. None other than the amazing, Pigdey!" He explained to us.
"Why am I not surprised," she said sarcastically, "I'm getting a Squirtle. I'm sure you're going to get a Growlithe, right Celli?" She asked with a roll of her eyes.
"Am I that predictable?" I answered, feigning insult. "Well anyway we had best get back to the game. Man, the rain's getting bad." We had to shelter our gameboys with our bodies to keep rain from getting on them. Lightning flashed uncomfortably close to us. The clouds began to twist in a circular motion. We all made our selections and pressed 'Okay.' We waited for the next question. Unfortunately, we didn't get that far.
The howl of the wind picked up rapidly, like a jet airplane getting ready for takeoff. We all tore our eyes from the screens in surprise. The clouds had funneled up into a small twister. It was growing by the minute. Dirt was scattered around us, making it hard to see.
"What's going on?" I yelped. The wind threatened to take my gameboy. I held it tighter in response.
"Hold on to the person nearest you! If we stay together, we might be able to get out of this!" I heard Rachel scream through the dirt. "Don't lose your gameboy!" She yelled. How could she care about the gameboys at a time like this? They were three hundred dollars and had our new Pokemon games in them. I guessed that was reason enough.
I put out my hand to grab someone. It landed on someone to my right. I clutched a grisly arm with my hand. It was Gregor! He grabbed my hand in response. Not a moment too soon either. I was beginning to lift off the ground! "Do you have Rachel?" I asked.
"Yes. She's got my other arm." I heard above the gale force winds. I suddenly felt lighter. I held Gregor arm tighter, using both hands this time, fearing the worst (we had all tucked our gameboys safely into our backpacks, which were secured to us, leaving our hands free). It didn't help. Gregor was being lifted into the air by the now tornado also, which meant Rachel was lifted too.
The tornado thrashed us through the air. I almost lost my grip a few times, but I held tight. I screamed, but nothing came out. My throat was all sorts of scratchy and dry, it wasn't comfortable at all. Something big came into view in front of us. I couldn't make out what it was because of my blurred vision. I was suddenly hit with such a hard blow that I almost let go of Gregor's arm.
My head suddenly began to hurt extremely badly. My vision filled with every color of the rainbow with black tinges on the edges. I was vaguely aware of falling, my arms still clinging to Gregor. Orange blurred my vision as I fell to ground. My body reunited with the ground, hard. Everything quickly went black.
