A/N: This fanfic is loosely inspired by SuperSkarmory's walkthrough for Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Explorers of Sky. It will feature me and him as the main characters since we both have the same Mystery Dungeon game, so a lot of his lines in the fanfic are from his narration in his walkthrough. And SS, if you're reading this fanfic, thanks for the tip on using the items from Marowak Dojo for the Recycle Shop! I've been doing that ever since you mentioned it in your walkthrough. Now, onto the fanfic...
"Ugh... Where am I?"
I woke up after I heard that voice. It sounded male, but I couldn't see anyone else at first. What I did notice was that I found myself on the beach. And when I got up, I saw a Mudkip laying right next to me. From the looks of it, he also just woke up.
"Okay, what the heck is going on?" I asked the Mudkip.
The Mudkip got up and looked at me in alarm. "Whoa, since when did Cyndaquils talk?" Judging by his voice, I knew that was the same voice I heard a few seconds ago.
Wait, did he just call me a Cyndaquil?
"You should talk!" I responded. "I never saw a talking Mudkip in my whole life!"
"Wait, Mudkip?" he asked. "I'm a human!"
"No, I see a talking Mudkip standing right in front of me," I insisted. "I'm the one who's a human."
"Not from what I see," the Mudkip insisted. "Just look at your reflection in the water."
I did, only to see a Cyndaquil right at me. Hold on...Cyndaquils are fire Pokemon, so that means...
"Th-This can't be me!" I stammered as I took a few steps back. "I'm not a Cyndaquil!"
"Well, you better believe it," the Mudkip said. "And I know I'm a human, so-" But he stopped as soon as he looked at his own reflection in the water.
"Oh my...goodness!" the Mudkip exclaimed. "I look so...epic." He smiled to himself, not surprised at all.
"SERIOUSLY?" I asked. "You're a treasoning Mudkip!"
"And you're a Cyndaquil," the Mudkip said as he looked at me. "The name's Eyan, by the way. And don't you forget it!"
"Karelia," I replied. "My name is Karelia."
"Okay then," Eyan said. "Now what do you say we figure out how I became a Mudkip?"
"Hold on, are you serious about being a human?" I asked. "Because I remember that I used to be a human."
"Maybe we were both humans," Eyan guessed. "Now if you excuse me, I'm off to find some help."
But just as Eyan was about to leave, I jumped in front of him. "Not without me," I said. "You must be forgetting that I was also a human. We need to stick together."
"You've got to be kidding me," Eyan said with an eye-roll. "Look, you seem like a nice gal, but how do I know you're telling the truth?"
"Excuse me?" I asked, starting to get annoyed.
"You might be pulling my leg," Eyan continued. "How do I know you're not some criminal whose trying to get on my good side?"
"Hey! Why'd you do that?"
That voice came from a nearby Treecko, who was cornered by a Koffing and a Zubat.
"Can't figure it out?" the Zubat asked. "We wanted to mess with you! Can't face up to us, can you?"
"Wh-What?" the Treecko stammered.
"That's yours, isn't it?" the Zubat asked, referring to a rock pendant the Treecko was wearing.
"No! That...!" the Treecko began.
"Sorry, kiddo," the Zubat said. "We'll take that!" Then he snatched the pendant from the Treecko's neck, causing the Treecko to scream in alarm.
"Not gonna make a move to get that back?" the Koffing asked. "What's the matter? Too scared? I didn't expect that you'd be such a big coward!" Then he looked over at the Zubat. "Come on. Let's get out of here."
"See you around, chicken," the Zubat said as he and the Koffing ran inside a nearby cave.
"Should we do something?" Eyan asked me.
"Why?" I asked in response. "It's not our problem."
"Hey you two!" the Treecko told me and Eyan. "Can you get my pendant back?"
"Whoa, hold on a minute!" I responded. "Can't you go get it yourself. It's your pendant."
"Well...yeah," the Treecko admitted.
"Then go get it!" I insisted as I gestured to the cave. "What's stopping you?"
"I...I..." the Treecko stammered.
"Um, Karelia..." Eyan said. "Maybe he can't fight them off." Then he approached the Treecko. "Don't worry, we'll get it."
"R-Really?" the Treecko asked, starting to look happy. "Th-Thank you!"
"Eyan...!" I exclaimed, not such what to tell him.
"It's like what you said earlier," Eyan recalled. "We have to stick together."
I groaned. "Fine," I said. "But after this, we're going our separate ways." Then I followed the strange Mudkip into the cave.
