Eve: Okay! Here's my next story, a Pokémon story. I really don't know why I'm writing this, but I am. The main character for this story, Akira, is based off of the OC of a friend of mine, Akira Saroyan. Well, let's move on to the story! What will happen?

Legends Awaken: Sinnoh Arc

Chapter 1

"Wow! Look at this paper!" A kid said, running up to a house holding a newspaper.

"Well, it seems like Ash is doing good on his journey through Sinnoh." A woman, standing at the door, said.

"Yeah! Soon, I'm going to be a great Pokémon trainer and defeat Ash Ketchum!" The boy said, smiling.

"Yeah, right!" A girl said, smiling. "I'll get my first pokemon before you!"

"Always bragging about being older than me, huh?" The boy said, pouting.

"Now, I'm sure you'll both be great trainers…" The woman said, patting both of them on the head.

Five years later…

"Okay! I'm almost there!" The same boy said to himself, sprinting towards Sandgem Town.

"Today's the day… I'm going to get my first pokemon!" He shouted.

"What do you mean you don't have any pokemon left?" The boy asked.

"I'm sorry, young man. We don't have any pokemon left." Professor Rowan said.

"What? But that's not fair…" The boy muttered.

"I'm sorry, but there's nothing we can do. Try coming back in a month or so." One of the Professors' assistants said.


"Sorry, mom." The boy said into one of those telephone-television things in the pokemon center. "The lab was out of pokemon when I got there, so I might have to stay here for a few days."

Or a month or so... He thought.

"That's okay, Aki-chan." His mom said, smiling.

"Mom, I told you not to call me Aki-chan! My name's Akira!" Akira said, blushing a little.

"Well, you stay up there as long as you need to. After all, why should that Lauren get to be the only one from Twinleaf to be on a journey?"

"Please don't remind me about that…" Akira muttered.

"Oh, and Aki-chan, it looks like you forgot to brush your hair again." Akiras' mom said, smiling.

""Mom!" Akira said, rushing to straighten out his brown hair.

"Good luck, Aki-chan!" Akira's mom said, smiling.

"Okay, bye." Akira said, hanging up the phone.

"Darn it… I've been waiting for years, and now I have to wait another month…" Akira muttered, splaying out on an armchair.

"Um, excuse me…" A voice asked, so quiet it was almost impossible to hear.

"Yes?" Akira asked, raising his head to meet two blue eyes.

"Um, you're that boy who was just at Professor Rowans' right…?" The girl asked, nervously running her fingers through her cream colored hair.

"Yeah, why?" Akira asked, sitting upright.

"Well, it's just that… well… I was kind of the last person to get a pokemon from the lab, so… um, I guess I got the last one…" The girl said, fidgeting.

"So? I can wait a month. You were there first so it's your pokemon, right?" Akira said, smiling.

"Um, yeah… thanks…" The girl said, smiling a little.

After the girl had left in a hurry, Akira slouched back down on the chair. "So, I say that, but what am I going to do for the next month…?" Suddenly, Akira sprang up from the chair.

"I've got it! I'll just capture a pokemon by myself!" Akira shouted.

"Sir, please refrain from shouting in the pokemon center." Nurse Joy said, smiling.

"Yes, ma'am…" Akira muttered, sitting back down.

"So, now that I'm out here, exactly how should I go about catching a pokemon?" Akira wondered, staring out at the tall grass that made up route 202. "If I recall correctly, I need to use pokeballs, but I can't afford any… So, now what?"

A rustling sound in the tall grass suddenly caught Akiras' attention.

"So, there you are…" Akira said, smiling. He slowly inched towards the rustling patch of grass. He then leaped at the patch and grabbed onto the pokemon, which turned out to be a Shinx, currently eating a berry. The Shinx, mad about Akira grabbing its' tail, whirled around and bit down on Akiras' hand.

"OW!" Akira shouted, grabbing his hand as the Shinx ran away.

"Darn it!" Akira shouted, running after the Shinx. He then took off his gray jacket and wrapped it around the Shinx. He was then struck with an electric jolt, causing him to let go of the jacket and fall over as the Shinx ran away.

"Darn it… It got away…" Akira muttered, sitting down under a tree.

"Wow, I've got to say, that was one of the worst attempts at catching pokemon I've ever seen." A voice said.

"What?" Akira asked, looking up.

"Why don't you just use a pokemon to battle with it?" A man said, smiling.

"Who are you?" Akira asked, looking up.

"My name's Masato. I'm a trainer from the Hoenn region, and I consider myself a genius of pokemon." Masato said, pushing his glasses up his face.

"If you're from the Hoenn region, why are you here?" Akira asked.

"I'm searching for two pokemon: Dialga and Palkia." Masato said, smiling. "So, tell me, why don't you just battle it with your own pokemon?"

"Well… I don't… have a pokemon…" Akira muttered, blushing.

"So, you don't have a pokemon and you got beaten by a Shinx." Masato said, smiling. "You could at least put a little more effort into catching her."

"How do you know it was a girl?" Akira exclaimed.

"Because. Her mane is matted down and her legs are blue." Masato said.

"Darn it! I will catch that Shinx if it's the last thing I do!" Akira exclaimed, standing up.

"Good luck with that." Masato said, smiling.

"There you are…" Akira said, staring at the sleeping Shinx. It was now late at night and the sun had gone down. The only figure that was still moving was Akiras' as he crept towards the Shinx.

"Almost… there… Got you!" Akira then leaped and grabbed hold of Shinx with his gray coat, meeting with another electric shock.

"Darn it… She got away…" Akira muttered, sitting down.

"You know, that was pretty funny. What's your name, anyway?" Masato asked.

"I'm Akira. And why are you standing there? Shouldn't you be out searching for those pokemon of yours?" Akira said, sitting down by the fire that Masato had set up.

"Akira, you don't just search for Dialga and Palkia. They are legendary pokemon. Normal people have a miniscule chance of even seeing one, let alone catching one."

"So shouldn't you be searching? If they're that rare, you should search as early as possible." Akira said.

"Akira, you don't just search for legendary pokemon. If you are deserving of legendary pokemon, they will find you."

"So you're just going to wait around?" Akira asked.

"Pretty much. I've seen legendary pokemon before, and I know that they can't be found with just searching. There must be something more…"

"Something more? Like what?" Akira asked.

"I don't know. I heard that there is an ancient legendary pokemon in a hidden cavern in a nearby lake, but I can't seem to find the lake." Masato said.

"Wait, by lake do you mean Lake Verity?" Akira asked.

"Yeah, why? Do you know where it is?" Masato asked.

"Yeah, it's near my house in Twinleaf Town."

"Oh, you mean the town over there?" Masato asked, gesturing towards Sandgem Town.

"No, that's Sandgem Town." Akira said.

"So where's Twinleaf Town?"

"About half a mile away."

"Wait, so I was searching here the whole time when the lake was less than a mile away?" Masato shouted.

"Pretty much." Akira said, laughing.

"Okay, come on, Gardevoir…" Masato said, tossing out a pokeball, revealing an elegant white and green human-like pokemon.

"Gardevoir, please teleport me to Sandgem town so we can go to Twinleaf Town." Masato said.

"Garde-voir~" Gardevoir said, beginning to glow.

"Het, wait a second!" Akira exclaimed, causing Gardevoir to stop the teleport.

"What?" Masato asked.

"Um, do you think you can teach me how to catch a pokemon?" Akira asked.

"…Fine… I've waited for more than five years, I can wait another day or so." Masato said.

The next day…

"Okay! So, what do I do?" Akira asked, standing up.

"Here you go." Masato said, handing Akira two pokeballs.

"Akira, one of those balls contains a pokemon and the other one is for catching your first pokemon." Masato said.

"Okay! I'm ready!" Akira said, as the same Shinx walked by again.

"There you are! Pokemon, go!" Akira shouted, tossing the pokeball.

"Grraoh!" A Mightyena growled, appearing from the pokeball.

"Okay, so what do I do now?" Akira asked, looking at Masato.

"Try using an attack." Masato said.

"Okay… Um… Mightyena, use…" Akira said. He then turned to Masato. "Um, what does Mightyena know?" Akira asked, rubbing his head sheepishly.

"Try Bite." Masato said, smiling.

"Okay, Mightyena, use bite." Mightyena then responded to this by biting down on Akira's outstretched arm.

"OW!" Akira shouted.

"Well, that was unfortunate." Masato said, smiling.

"Unfortunate…?" Akira asked, shaking. "THAT WAS MORE THAN UNFORTUNATE!" He shouted.

"Geez, sorry…" Masato said. He then reached into his pocket and pulled out a pokeball.

"Here. This is a pokemon that I received from a friend of mine who lives somewhere in Celestic Town. Its low leveled, and I haven't spent much time with it, so it might listen to you. I'll let you use it to catch that shinx." Masato then held out the pokeball. But as Akira reached for it, he pulled his hand back.

"First, you have to come with me to investigate the lake, okay?" Masato asked, smiling.

"Fine…" Akira said.

"Good. Gardevoir, can you teleport us to Twinleaf?" Masato asked.

"Garde-voir~" Gardevoir said, glowing. The three of them then disappeared, and reappeared in Twinleaf Town.

"Well, now, which way to the lake?" Masato asked.

"This way." Akira said, walking towards the lake.

Eve: Yeah! So, what surprises will Akira and Masato run into at the lake?

Eve: Since the pokemon section is so vast, I don't think a lot of people will read my story, much less review it. But wait! YOU'RE reading the story! Since you went to the trouble of reading it, will you at please review?

Eve: Thank you for reading! And sorry if it begins a little drab.
