Hey guys! I've been playing back to some of my original pokemon games lately, and I've found some of the dialogue somewhat inspiring for random little one-shots. So, I'm making a bunch of random little one-shots!
I'm going to be going through my Pokemon Yellow, NPC by NPC, and create little stories for any characters that I deem desirable for a one shot. Most bosses, gym leaders, major characters, and people with just plain boring dialogue and stuff will be ignored for a number of reasons. The bosses and major characters already have a place in the pokemon world that's somewhat defined, so it'd be difficult to make my own gags, and past to them, without being called out on it. The ones with boring dialogue… well there's nothing to say.
Most of these chapters will be really short, and I doubt any will even make it to 1000 words (except maybe this first one because of the long A/N), but they'll just be something I can come up with, get a chapter up quick, and have a lot of fun with.
Also, I ask for some of you to do the same in your own way. Find any random character (preferably NPC) take their dialogue, location, sprite, team, and whatever else, and make some fun quick fic about it. Hey, if I'm correct there's actually a lass named Dawn somewhere in the southern part of Kanto if FR/LG, so you time line theorist, and people with way too much time on your hand could have some fun with turning her into the fourth gen Dawn
Anyway, since this is the first chapter, let's start with something totally originally, and way out there, the opening words from Professor Oak! (that was sarcasm if you didn't get it -.-)
Disclaimer: I a'be dissclaimin' dis here fic, ya see!
Character's dialogue: Hello there! Welcome to the world of Pokemon! My name is Oak! People call me the Pokemon PROF! This world is inhabited by creatures called Pokemon! For some people, Pokemon are pets. Others use them for fights. Myself… I study Pokemon as a profession. First, what is your name? Right, so your name is _. This is my grandson. He's been your rival since you were a baby. …Erm, what was his name again? That right! I remember now! His name is _. _! Your very own Pokemon legend is about to unfold! A world of dreams and adventures with pokemon awaits you! Let's go!
My first thoughts on the dialogue: Usual intro, so not much to say, but man, they really like those explanation marks. Also a few more grammar errors, but that doesn't matter, and I'm not one to talk.
"Hey, grandson! Can you come in here for a minute?" Oak shouted across the lab.
"What is it gramps", his grandson said, somewhat annoyed, walking into the room. "And my name's Gary! Did you forget again?"
"Of course I didn't forget your name, ummm…"
"Right, Of course, Gary". Oak waved his hand. "of course I knew that!"
"Ugh, what do you want gramps?"
"Well, a new trainer is arriving today, and I want to make sure that I remember what to say. So I need you to help me rehearse".
"Yeah, whatever", Gary said, taking a seat in the lab, "just don't make it too long".
"Okay", Okay prepared himself, taking a deep breath, "Hello there! Welcome to the world of Pokemon!"-
"Wait, you're introducing this trainer to the world?" Gary asked. Oak just nodded. Wouldn't they already exist in this world though? Why do you have to tell them what Pokemon are?"
"Well you never know what dimension these kids come from these days", Oak stated, leave Gary question whether it was time for a retirement home.
"Whatever, just continue".
"My name is Oak! People call me the Pokemon PROF!" Gary let it slide that nobody actually called him that. "This world is inhabited by creatures called Pokemon! For some people, Pokemon are pets. Others use them for fights".
"Again, anyone in this world will know what pokemon are, gramps"
"LOOK, IT'S MY SPEECH SO STOP TELLING OFF ABOUT IT!"
"Well sorry for trying to give constructive criticism" Gary mumbled.
"I forgive you", Oak said, making Gary hardly able to restrain his rage. "Continuing; Myself… I study Pokemon as a profession. First, what is your name?" Oak stopped talking, and the room went silent.
"Go on", Gary said.
"Well, I need you to give me a name!"
"What? Why can't you think one up? Ah, whatever, Ash, or Red, or Jack. Any of those good enough?"
"Who the heck is named Ash, or Red? I'll just go with Jack. Once again;First, what is your name?"
"Ugg, Jack". Gary rolled his eyes.
"Right, so your name is Jack. This is my grandson. He's been your rival since you were a baby. …Erm, what was his name again?"
"WHAT THE HECK? GRAMPS ARE YOU SERIOUS!" The lab shook because Gary shouted so loud. "First you say I'm this kid's rival, but I don't even know who they are, and then you forget my name, AGAIN!"
"Oh, I'm just saying you're his rival so you both will get a good challenge and strive to be your best. And I know your name, it's… Blue?"
"GARY! My name is Gary! G-A-R-Y! Four easy letters!"
"Yeah, yeah, calm down Barry"
"You mix me up with that hyperactive, fourth gen, buffoon!"
"Oh, I'm just kidding Gary" Oak waved it off. Gary continued to grumble. "Now, finally; Your very own Pokemon legend is about to unfold! A world of dreams and adventures with pokemon awaits you! Let's go!"
"Well I guess that's not too bad a way to end the introduction" Gary admitted.
"Right, then I shrink them down to 8-bit pixel size, and they wake up again in their home across the street!"
Gary stared bluntly at is grandfather and finally said, "Yup, to the mental hospital we go. Follow me!"
Well, there it goes. This one was a little off because it was Oak and all, but I hope it was a good intro to the idea. Anyway, new chapter soon (hopefully one where the A/N doesn't take up most of the fic), so if you liked this, then be ready for more crack, random, ridiculous stuff like it!
And so we go.
