Hello, deviantART people, I guess. Right now, I am starting to type up my journey in Pokemon Red. However, this is not your normal playthrough, oh no. I am literally just hitting the Z, X, up down left right and start keys for VisualBoyAdvance at random. This is supposed to simulate the experience of TwitchPlaysPokemon, but I dont know. This is going to be a dramatic retelling of my story. Each chapter will end when I get a Gym Badge, or when I feel it should end. So without further ado, enjoy this awkward story.
CHAPTER 1: STARTING UP and PEPPER
It had been the day he had been waiting for. His name was I-x, but his friends just called him "Ian" (MY NAME, HOLY SH
T!) Anyway, Ian had been inspired by Red's journey 3 years prior. He had known his entire team, and almost worshipped them: Lord Helix, Bird Jesus, AA-j, The All-Terrain Venomoth, Air Jordan, and the Fonz. However, he did not want to be as good as Red, he wanted to be better. But first, he would have to pass his rival, his childhood pal named xSJA, but he called himself St. Joseph for short. (egotistical bastard) He walked to the edge of town, near the tall grass of Route 1. Something in him told him to go. Finally, after thinking it over, he stepped in, only to be stopped by Prof. Oak. He followed him into his lab, and he saw the three Pokeballs. He had to choose between
Squirtle. He took a while to decide, but he felt a sense of familiarity with Bulbasaur. He saw that everyone chose Charmander or Squirtle, leaving Bulbasaur behind. He smiled at the creature, and held it in his arms. Naturally, St. Joseph chose Charmander. They decided to have a battle, but Ian was not strong enough yet, and so he lost. He promised Bulbasaur that he would get stronger, and defeat St. Joseph.
Later, he finally got to Viridian City. At the mart, he was asked by the clerk to deliver a package to the Prof. He accepted it with a sense of duty. He wondered what was inside, even trying to check the parcel during battles, over and over and over again, even though something powerful was stopping him each time, claiming that it wasn't his to use. He felt a sort of mystery in the parcel, and was saddened when he had to deliver it to Oak. He obtained the
Pokedex, bought some
Pokeballs, and set off for the first gym in Pewter. After some wild battles, his Bulbasaur got beat up pretty badly, and had to go to the nearest Pokemon Center. However, he found what would be his greatest adversary on the whole journey: A LEDGE. Down he tumbled with each misstep, having to climb up again. Who builds a hospital on a ledge anyway?
Finally, he went into the establishment and healed his Bulbasaur, later, he went to Route 2 and caught a
Pidgey, but did not give it a nickname. He also caught a
Rattata he named xMNSRI, or Siri for short. His last capture was a
male Nidoran. He was feeling confident that his team was one that would bring him to victory, but they were all low leveled. All of that changed when he forgot to heal, and he encountered another Pidgey. However, this one was different. It had a powerful aura about it; one that made even Bulbasaur question going in.
The battle began. Ian sent out his own Pidgey to fight it, but it was blinded by its powerful Sand-Attack. It got two Gusts off on the foe, but it was still going strong.
Ian's Pidgey was down for the count. Next, he sent in Bulbasaur, determined to defeat this monster. He was able to weaken the Gusts with his Growl attack. Both of them were down to their last bit of health. Suddenly, as if instinctively, Ian threw a Pokeball, and caught it. He may have had two Pidgeys, but that didn't matter to him. He named him AIAJII, or AJI, a spicy sauce that contains Aji peppers. He was known as Pepper henceforth. Later, they encountered another Pidgey, which took down his weakened team.
TEAM: Bulbasaur , Pidgey, Siri, Nidoran, Pepper
