Oh and thank you for 10000 views. Wish I could do something special...Oh wait, I did. New goal: 20000(on top 10s!)(Man the competition is fierce.)I'm a writer. I tried writing on fur affinity, but the server there has crashed and no one has seriously commented on my stories. I'm hoping for some comments on this new story which I am releasing here first. Axe that, only here. Especially since I'm so close to getting on the top ten for most words(about 20000 more) and potentially most reads(more then 5000 now) I'll put the general disclaimer here. All publicly recognizable characters, settings, etc. are the property of their respective owners, Nintendo, Game Freak, Creatures inc, and Pokemon. The original characters and plot are the property of me. I am in no way associated with the owners, creators, or producers of Pokemon. No copyright infringement is intended. If you are offended by anything in this story, then you have a serious problem being offended by something no one force you to read but I don't care enough so don't complain to me if you end up offended.
Chapter 4 OH NO! Not another chapter of mostly meaningless dialog! (or alternatively Finally a clear goal)
"Oak, Ivy, Elm, Birch, Rowan?" Mech whispered to San "What's up with all the trees?"
"You got me. And Ivy isn't a tree."
"Feel free to sit down. It'll take a while to find the equipment." The professor added before going into another room audibly rummaging through boxes. Mech and San found a couch and sat down and waited. Presently a large crab with a very impressive claw side stepped in and was surprised to see two unfamiliar faces in the house.
"Hmm. What should I do" the crab thought out loud assuming only the Larvitar could understand him. "Did Oak let them in? Should I go find him? Maybe I should just watch them and wait for Oak to get back."
"Sure, wait as long as you want. Oak should be back in a moment." Mech stated
"Did you just understand me?" asked the crab, walking over "Wow, a human that can understand me! What luck! Normally I have to go find someone better at pantomime then me if I need to tell that old man something."
"Yeah, I don't understand it either. So, what do they call you?"
"Me, well my owner, Oaks grandson, just calls me Kingler. I'm happy with the name."
"Nice to meet you Kingler," Mech said shaking Kingler's claw "I'm Mech and this is San."
"Hello Mech and San. Oh, I hear him coming back." Kingler announced. Oak walked into the room carrying a bag full of electronics.
"I've found what I was looking for. Ah, I see you meet Kingler, my grandson's pokémon." He said setting the bag on the table. "Now for your job you'll need a few things, first off a pokédex," he continued pulling out a little red devise not unlike a fold up calculator "It contains all knowledge of every pokémon known to date which is depressingly limited. Here is a devise you can use to record entries" he continued pulling out a lap top like device. "It can transmit data back to me from almost anywhere in Sinnoh, Kanto, or Johto. Hoenn is too far away but I'm focusing on Sinnoh for now so its null and void. You'll need this map too." He added handing over a high-tech scroll "Oh and I almost forgot, here's your start up payment, 1000 pd (I cant do the p thing so this'll do) and six pokéballs and some clips for them to attach them to your pack. You'll also need a trainer license to compete in any events so I'll show you over to the Pokémon League Registration building to get one. I expect you to send some form of report at least once a week. If you don't I press a button and the pokédex self-destructs."
"Yay, exploding gadgets. Well this doesn't sound so hard. I'll just cram it into my bag here." Mech said rolling his eyes. Somehow he managed to fit the lap top thing into his bag with the map along side it and the dex into his pocket. He added the clips to the straps and set the balls in place. Then he put the money into his wallet. "I'm ready to go." He announced and the Professor showed him over to the PLR building. The registration was more challenging then is should because Mech had to make up the information about where he lived. After that they took a picture of him, and handed him the card which he crammed into his wallet. He thanked oak and promised to write an entry as soon as he could after which Oak directed him to a red building called a Pokémon Center "wow they love patterns here" he thought as the red headed nurse showed him to an empty room and he fell onto the bed. He was almost asleep when San poked him on the head.
"What?" he asked groggily.
"Aren't you going to catch me now that you're a trainer?" She asked.
"Do I have to? Do you want me to?" he asked.
"You do if you want to keep me with you. Unless I'm registered to you, any old Joe can come alone and catch me and there will be nothing you can do about it."
"I don't know, these things seem awfully small." He said uneasy
"I don't know how they work either because I've never been in a human city before, but you don't have to leave me in there forever, just until the button stops flashing." She answered. He looked questioningly at her, silently asking how she knew that. "I say a trainer do that as she caught a pokémon."
"So how do I catch you with this?"
"The trainer I saw threw it at the Wurmple, but I assume poking me with it should work too." So Mech leaned over and after a few attempts at poking the right side, the ball activated and San disappeared in a flash of red light. Mech stared at the ball in his hand as it shook for a moment, the button glowing red before it stopped and the button returned to its white color. He pressed the button again and in a flash of white light San was back in front of him.
"That was unusual." She commented. "Well now that that's solved, how about we go to sleep?"
"Great idea" he agreed. With that he shut of the single light in the small room and crawled into the bed. San crawled in too and the pair slept back to back all night.
