Quick explanation before I let you go on- or if you want to skip onto the story, go right ahead, but I'm giving you some helpful explanations here!

I asked my friend on deviantart if I could post the results of an RP we did together and she said yes. Anyway, both main human characters here are OC's. Kay is my OC, she's from Hoenn but she got on the wrong boat and went to Johto and started her poketrainer avdenture there. Sookie is dev rockingyourstar's OC, she's from Sinnoh and went to Johto to get out of the shadow of her twin Olympia. Kay's pokemon team is (and they all have nicknames) Jarvis [Feraligatr], Pierre [Ampharos], Vayne [Espeon], Bronx [Steelix], Cortez [Sceptile], and Emberlynn [Rapidash]. Sookie's team is Willasue [Typhlosion], Moonlight [Umbreon], Meep [Ampharos], Rocky [Steelix], Batgirl [Crobat], and Sapphire [Lapras] (who was not used here). We also took quite a few creative-license liberties with certain pokemon moves- the first and foremost being Faint Attack.
This takes place a while after they've started their adventures- as in, both of them have all eight badges. Kay's training for the Silver Conference, Sookie's... I don't remember. Also, this was written before Gen V came out, so this is all Gen IV moves, abilities, and stuff.
Okay, now onward we go to ADVENTURRRRE!
A series of coughs came from a large but quickly dissipating pillar of smoke. While a few were animalistic in nature, one stood out the most, a feminine and human voice. The smoke disappeared, leaving the scene to be viewed properly without the smoke to hinder it. The ground was scorched with multiple black marks, and pieces of the earth were lifted and cracked. Grass and tree leaves were blown back temporarily, and two animalistic forms lay on the rocky earth while a human girl got to her feet, waving away smoke from her face.
She surveyed the damage, her Pokemon, and her red, black, orange, yellow, and white clothes and an impressed frown was her expression as she coughed once more before her throat finally stopped being itchy and dry. "Well, that was... interesting."
"Fiiii..." groaned a yellow- and white-furred bipedal creature, with black striped ears, neck, and tail, and a jewel on its tail tip and its forehead. Opposite it was a white horse with a fiery mane and tail, and a single hard horn on its head. A heavy sigh-like snort came from the horse Pokemon in answer of the yellow one's groan. Laughing to himself from afar was a purple-furred fox with a double-pronged tail, large triangular ears and bright red jewel at the center of his head.
"Vayne, quit your laughing; we had a worse experiment result with your first Psybeam against Pierre's Thunderbolt, if you'll recall."
The purple fox quickly shut up as the horse pokemon started busting out with a loud series of whinnies that were the equivalence of laughing. An embarassed light came in its amethyst eyes as it looked away with a loud, pouty huff.
"Okay, so let's see..." said their trainer, Kay, while the yellow Pokemon and horse all got to their feet. "What did we learn today, Pierre, Emberlynn?"
The two Pokemon looked at each other, and at the same time hung their head low.
"It's one thing to aim our attacks into one stream of power at the opponent, but it's an entirely different ball game when we aim our attacks at the other attack. So from now on, to avoid another explosion like that, what are we not going to do?"
In soft voices they replied, Pierre in an apologetic "baa" and Emberlynn with a short whinny.
"That's right. Thunderpunch plus Flare Blitz equals very bad."
A long distance away, far up the mountain under which Kay trained, another trainer seemed to be having Pokemon frustrations as well. "Batgirl?!" called the girl, hugging herself against the chill winds. "BATGIRL! Come on, this isn't funny anymore. I swear to Arceus when I find you I'll -" A hard wind swept by, flinging the girl's thick brown hair into a storm around her face. She shivered with cold. "Batgirl, come ON! It's freezing out here; I need my hat!"
"Umbre." A black-furred creature appeared from behind a tree some distance away, his normally red eyes glowing a faint purple.
"What's up, Moonlight?" the trainer, Sookie, asked him. Moonlight used his head to gesture towards the nearby incline, where the mountain dropped off towards the level land at its base. She followed his gaze. "She's that way, huh? Dang bat... Keep up that Psychic. Tell me if I'm going the wrong way."
The Umbreon nodded and his trainer headed towards the mountainside. Open sky became visible to her, and finally the steep descent of the trees as they followed the land's contour. A flash of purple within the branches below caught Sookie's eye. "BATGIRL!" she called. "I see you! You'll never get away with this!"
A mocking high-pitched screech echoed up to her, creasing her face in a frown. Moonlight arrived at her side. "I know you're not a psychic-type, but do you think you can hold her still for a minute? Maybe pull her up here?"
He appeared doubtful, but turned and began to concentrate his powers on the giant bat-like creature. The wind blew by again, making Sookie wince, and suddenly the Pokemon shot of from the trees, flapping wildly in a struggle against the glowing force that seemed intent of holding her captive. Moonlight frowned deeply, trying his hardest to capture the Crobat, but his efforts were to no avail.
"Okay, Moonlight, that'll do." The light around the Crobat disappeared and she paused in mid air, looking around in search of the attack that had chased her. Clutched in her tiny feet was the edge of a black fedora-style hat. Sookie grinned. "Gotcha."
She pressed the button of one of the balls at her belt, and in a flash of red light a huge creature began to take shape next to her - a giant snake-like formation of metallic boulders. It gave a happy roar and shoved its massive head up next to Sookie, nearly knocking her off her feet.
"Yeah, I love you too, Rocky, now get offa me," she said, though she couldn't resist a laugh. "I need a Rock Climb escort down there, and fast. We can't let Batgirl get away."
Rocky followed her gaze to the purple bat and made a noise of delight. He held his head down long enough for Sookie and Moonlight to climb on, then set off in a controlled slide down the mountain.
At the grinding noise made by the Rock Climb, Batgirl spun around and sighted her trainer and comrades heading straight for her. With a yelp-like squeak she swooped double-time through the trees, fleeing as fast as her four wings could carry her.
Sookie urged Rocky onward after the bat, until she noticed that they had begun to go dangerously fast. "Uh...Rocky? We can slow down...we'll catch her at the bottom..." Obediently the Steelix withdrew his head in an attempt to put on the brakes, only to find that he continued to slide down the hillside. "Rocky?" Sookie and Moonlight exchanged a glance and ducked close to his head for safety. "ROCKY!"
Kay began to command her Pokemon again, this time making sure that the words "Flare Blitz" and "Thunderpunch" did not coincidentally meet each other again. A small red flash caught her eye and she turned to the source - her Espeon.
"Vayne, what is it?"
His eyes had started to glow a bright red, matching his jewel. Having seen him glow like this before, she was not alarmed. However, she was alarmed that he had gotten a sudden and involuntary Future Sight. So, she waited for the glow to disappear, and give her Espeon back his natural violet eyes.
The Espeon looked...troubled.
"What did you see, Vayne?" she asked him, taking her attention off of the sparring pokemon behind her.
"Espe. Espe espe!" he mewed, and with a vague "follow" gesture of his head, he started bounding off.
"H-hey! Vayne, wait!" she started after him, before she remembered, "Oh yeah! Pierre, Emberlynn, return!" Kay commanded, bringing their respective pokeballs to her hand and pressing the center buttons. Red lazers zapped to their spot, and in seconds they were gone.
"Vayne!" she called as she darted past the trees, following the small lavender blur. "Wait up! Slow down, little guy, you know I only have two legs, and you have four! Totally unfair!"
Eventually the purple vulpine stopped, and his trainer was finally able to catch up. She panted, hands on her knees, "Okay-huff-what-huff-is it?"
"Espe!" he mewed, and his eyes flickered to the nearby cliffside. It was a part of the mountain, a drop-off that ended a large, steep hillside. It was okay for a Rock Climb up, but it looked like a dangerous gamble to Rock Climb down.
"I don't...OH MY ARCEUS!" she gasped, catching the exact spot he was looking at. Sliding down the side looked to be a large Steelix, with its trainer atop its head with a black Pokemon. A purple flying blur was at the front, but it seemed to be the least of their worries. It looked to be more like they were falling too fast down the mountain...
And if they weren't stopped, they'd fall right off!
"No way I'm gonna let that happen! Vayne, use Psychic, full power!" she barked.
"Espe!" The Espeon nodded, and as he concentrated his sight on the moving Steelix and trainer, his eyes began to glow a bright blue, and his jewel a sharp contrasting red.
A bright cerulean outline began to surround the sliding pokemon and trainer, and as it grew brighter and stronger, drastic breaks in their speed grew as they went slower and slower. The Espeon's eyes flashed and the Psychic attack reached full power and the sliding subjects came to full stop... feet away from the edge of a cliff.
Kay released a relieved sigh, "That could have been close. Alright, boy, bring them over here."
"Espe!" he mewed, and with a flick of his tail he focused his Psychic to bringing them over.
The steel-type and his cargo lifted slowly from the mountainside and drifted over to Kay and Vayne, where they landed on the ground with a dull thump. Sookie heaved a huge sigh of relief and dismounted Rocky, Moonlight following suit. "Whoa, thanks. I thought we were screwed. Now if you would give me one second..." She turned towards the trees and bellowed, "BATGIRL! GET THE HELL OVER HERE!"
After a moment the purple bat glided slowly from the canopy, a remorseful and sheepish look on her face. She came to hover before Sookie, who snatched her hat from the Crobat's clutches. "Thaaaank you. Now, return and I'll deal with you later." In a flash of red Batgirl was sent back to her Pokeball, and Sookie looked back at Kay, replacing her fedora. "Sorry. Anyway, that's an awesome Psychic your Espeon's got."
"Thank you!" Kay smiled, quickly though as her eyes darted to the lavendar vulpine who looked...quite taken with the comment. She gave him an irritated look, "Vayne, quit preening."
The Espeon pouted, but to no avail as his trainer was far too used to his google-y eyes to be affected.
"It was no biggie. So what brings you up here to Mt. Silver?"
"Just training." Sookie shrugged. "I was working with Batgirl, until she decided it would be more fun to steal my hat and disappear with it."
Kay giggled, "Sometimes a little fun is all you need. Anyway, I myself am training up here for the Silver Conference...oh, I apologize. I totally forgot." And she paused to clear her throat and then she held out her hand, "I'm Kay. From Dewford Town. And this little furball of overwhelming psychic vainglory is Vayne."
"Espe!" he mewed, sending his trainer an amused, arrogant smirk as he straightened up like a proud bird might.
Sookie chuckled, taking Kay's hand and shaking it. "Sookie, from Twinleaf. That's Moonlight, and - oh, right." The Steelix behind her gave a cheerful roar and attempted to nuzzle against her. She pushed him away with difficulty and regained her balance. "Thisis Rocky Horror. Who is now going to take a rest in his pokeball." She pressed the button of the ball at her belt and withdrew Rocky.
"Rocky, huh." Kay whistled, before he was returned to the pokeball, "Pretty impressive looking. Looks much tougher than Gym Leader Jasmine's... then again..." She and Vayne shared a look, a brief, non-audible conversation with each other, before Kay returned to looking at Sookie. "...So is Bronx." She then shrugged.
"You have a Steelix, too?" asked Sookie.
"Yeah." nodded Kay, "Only his name isn't Rocky, his is Bronx."
"Ah." A smile was growing on her face. "And you say he's pretty tough?"
"Well," A wide-spread grin appeared on her face, the feeling that she knew where this conversation might be going rising up pleasantly, "I won't say he's the most fantastic, but as far as I'm concerned... Bronx puts Jasmine's Steelix to shame."
"Well, that may be true," she replied, "but it's not hard. She may be a gym leader, but her Steelix couldn't measure up to Rocky even when he was an Onix."
"Not her battle Steelix, the one that's in her team. I mean the really vicious one she's looking to trade to someone."
"Oh, that one, huh?" Sookie pretended to think for a moment. "Eh, I'm sure Rocky could still handle it."
"Oh, you wanna bet?" grinned Kay.
"Yeah, actually." Sookie's hand was reaching toward her belt in anticipation. "What, do you think you could beat him?"
"Beat him? HA!" Kay laughed dramatically, her hand itching to reach toward her opposite arm where her custom arm belts held her Pokemon, "More like, as some internet dorks would say, 'pwn.'"
"Oh, pwn?" Sookie finally gave in to the urge to pull the pokeball from her belt and began to toss it with one hand. "Let's just see about that, then. If they can both beat Jasmine's wild Steelix, let's just see what they do against each other, shall we?"
"Yes, let's," said Kay, and she snatched a pokeball from the third notch in her right arm. With unrestrained joy she cried out, "Time for some fun, Bronx!" and she threw the ball to the air after a quick click of the center button.
Sookie caught Rocky's Pokeball one last time and swung it forward, clicking it open to release a flash of red light. It mingled with the light released from Kay's ball as they grew and formed into two towering shapes, solidifying as a pair of fierce metallic snakes facing off with each other.
"STEEL!" roared Rocky, turning to grin at Sookie. "STEELSTEEL!"
"STEEEEL!" Bronx roared sighting the other Steelix and an almost giddy grin that shined on its expression.
"It's about time we had some real competition for you, huh Bronx?" Kay patted his metallic hide.
Sookie smiled and moved to give Rocky his first command, only to be swept up by a great tail of boulders and cuddled against the Steelix's giant jaw. "OW! OW! ROCKY!" she yelled, trying to push the diamond-hard creature off of her. "OW! Let me go! We have to battle now, it's not snuggle time! ROCKY!"
Kay tried to quell the amused laughter that wanted to rock through her lungs like an earthquake.
The Espeon Vayne did not bother to restrain.
"Vayne! Quit being rude!" Kay scolded, trying to stop the smile from rising up his cheeks.
Vayne did not stop.
Sookie, in her struggle against the Steelix's grip, paid no mind. Moonlight, on the other hand, glanced over, his red eyes apparently disinterested. And instant later a wave of Dark Pulse was flying toward the psychic type.
A slash of red in his eyes was enough to warn Vayne of the attack, and he leapt out of the way, growling at the Umbreon.
"Vayne, don't," Kay warned.
Sookie seemed to have finally freed herself and was rubbing the sore places where Rocky's corners had pressed. She laughed, straightening the Wide Lens that gave him the appearance of having a bionic eye. "Looks like we're about to have a double battle on our hands."
"Unless you have any objections to that... I'm sure a few of my guys and gal would...love to have a piece of this." she said, the emphasis on love feeling like an understatement as she sent an amused glance at her growling Espeon, who was pausing only to groom his apparently dirtied pelt.
"Haha, alright." Sookie gestured to Moonlight. "Sic'em, Moon. And Rocky..." She looked up at the great metal snake. He was gazing into the canopy, seemingly fascinated with a butterfly that fluttered there. "Just...just follow Moonlight."
The Umbreon shook himself off and bound into the space between the two trainers and their Pokemon. Belatedly Rocky realized that he'd been given a command and lurched into the space as well, practically wagging his tail.
"Vayne, Bronx, front and center," Kay said, cracking her knuckles as Vayne finished his last ditch effort at grooming, and Bronx snaked his way forward, "Time to rock and roll, boys! Let's see what our training's led us to."
The Espeon smirked, charging up his body with some sort of cosmic power that made his forehead jewel faintly glow. The Steelix growled deep with a satisfactory tone, and his tail, as lightly as a steel tail can manage, smacked against the ground like a wagging dog tail, slight tremors shaking with each impact.
Sookie let out an excited whoop. "Whoo! Let's do this!"
And that's where I'll stop for now. See you in part/chapter 2! C:
