Pokemon: HeartGold/ SoulSilver
Disclaimers: I do not own Pokemon… obviously… games are ok. The shows are mental. But anyways….
Chapter 1: Betrayal
Ethan kept quiet as possible, as he snuck through the Team Rocket HQ. The Pokemon with him were his Typhlosion, Quilliam, a Polliwrath, an Umbreon and a Pigeot. His Umbreon cradled in his arms and the rest on his Pokemon waiting patiently in their PokeBalls. He, they all knew this could lead to a battle, they knew what they were up against. But after the events at The Lake of Rage, there was no way he could leave Team Rocket alone. They were pushing it too far, interrupting the radio signals and angering the Pokemon in the area. Ethan rolled his shoulders, and then tiptoed up the steps. He'd already taken out way to many goons, having to knock them out as well as their Pokemon to make sure they didn't alert anyone. As his dark gray eyes examined the hallway for more grunts a look of confusion clouded his face.
That's not—it couldn't be—no flippin way. "Lance?" He spoke the name he'd heard so many times on TV. The man that had taken down challenger after challenger, keeping his position of Champion, the Dragon Tamer. But what's he doing here?
Lance heard his movement and turned to face him, a PokeBall tight in his grip. He blinked at Ethan, then waved him over. "Well, I can tell your not one of them. So, I'm going to assume you're here to get rid of them." When he nodded, Lance grinned. "Same here. They're messing with the Pokemon around here. Using some Electrode to control their machine. You can go take care of their boss in the room up ahead, and I'll take care of the machine."
"Right." Ethan replied, with a nod, they headed their separate directions. Although he probably should have been thinking strategy, he was too busy acting like a school girl meeting their idol. Wow! I just met the Lance. He's as cool as he looks on TV. Oh my god. I still can't believe he talked to me. As Ethan swung open the door, ready to face Giovanni his jaw dropped and his heart sank as he recognized the last person he'd expect to be here.
"Lyra?..." Ethan managed. His best friend, his first crush, the girl always on his mind; was now one of the enemies. She looked exactly the same, aside from the floppy hat missing from her head and her outfit. Her white dress came down about mid-thigh, it hugged her body until her waist where it then went more outwards. White boots with silver soles, about a two-inch lift in the heels. And a big, red "R" plastered to the middle of it. She's—
"Hello… Ethan." She murmured, her eyes were tinted red and puffy, like she'd been crying.
"What are you doing?" He asked, he stumbled over to her slowly. He placed both hands on her shoulders and looked into her eyes.
She shrugged him off and started to back away from him. "Ethan. Please… just leave before…"
She grew silent as tilted her head as if she were listening to something. Her eyes welled with more tears. "But…" She started to protest, and then flinched. "O-Ok…" She shakily reached for her belt and pulled a PokeBall off of it. "I'm sorry… I'm so, so sorry." She then sent out a Weezing. "Use Smokescreen, then Smog."
"Wait! Lyra!" He was cut off as a mass of gray smoke clouded the air and smeared his vision. "Lyra!" He called again, only to start coughing from the thicker gray smoke that billowed into the air.
"Dragonite, use Whirlwind." He heard a voice order, in a gust of wind the smoke disappeared.
"D-Dammit!" Ethan yelled, dropping to his knees and rubbing his eyes. He felt a hand on his shoulder and looked up at Lance.
"Hey… are you Ethan?" He nodded, and then Lance handed him a folded up piece of paper. "Then, I think this is for you. I took out the machine, but I'm leaving the rest to you. I believe you can end this threat, Ethan." Lance exited and Ethan looked at the paper. The front said: Ethan. Please read this after you get out of HQ. Ethan frowned and opened the nearest window. Then he jumped.
As he free fell, Umbreon struggling in his arms giving him a look that said: Are you mad? He grabbed a PokeBall off his belt and threw it. And suddenly his Pigeot was under him, carrying both their weights. "I'll tell you where we're going in a second."
Just then his Pokegear started to spaz, he opened it to find a frantic looking Professor Elm. "Ethan, there's some weird broadcasts on the radio. I'd like to check it out. This is Team Rocket's doing." Then he hung up. He turned on his radio as he opened Lyra's note.
Look I'm really sorry about joining Team Rocket. I didn't have a choice. I can't explain it now, they're watching my every move. It's risky to write this. But please don't be angry, please don't hate me. I don't think I could handle losing out friendship. All I can say right now, is that one of my friend's are in danger, and I can't let anything happen to him. By the time you read this, I'll probably be in Goldenrod City. The Radio Tower. I really need your help.
At the same time the Radio Droned:
… Uh… Um…. Testing! Testing 1, 2, 3. We're the amazing Team Rocket! It's been three years but we've rebuilt the team and restructured! We're proud to announce that we're back!
Giovanni! Can you hear this? …We finally did it! Where could the boss be, I wonder? I wonder if he heard this announcement…
(A/N I took this announcement directly from the HG/SS Pokemon Game All credit for these line goes to them)
"We're going to Goldenrod, guys. Pigeot, let's fly. I have to stop Team Rocket, I have to save Lyra."
A/N: Well that was the first chapter. I started the stroy at the point in the game just before the seventh gym badge. Although it wasn't really before.I didn't really mention his badges, Ethan has seven badges at this point. But back to what I was saying, I changed it up a bit as you could have read. If you acually read it cause I know that I sometimes look at a story, then close it before I start reading it. owo sorry,but sometimes I just don't feel like reading them... wow I rant a lot. About stuff that has nothing to do with this story. Next chapter will be up in the next few days. xD stay with me ppl this ^ probably won't happen again. Feel free to review.
