Okay, so wow! So much has happened already! Moving to a new town. Meeting new people and getting a new Pokémon! A whole new adventure. Ha!
Whoops, I’m getting ahead of myself, let me just start from the beginning. The name’s Hunter, but I go by Haunter. They are my absolute favorite, ever since I saw one on a show when I was younger I’ve always wanted to catch one! But, because of that show and my obsession with the ghost Pokémon, the nickname kind of stuck. I don’t think anyone calls me by my real name anymore.
Anyway, let me get on with the reason for my post, for starting this blog really: I’m going on an adventure!!
Moving to a new town was scary, but the first day there I met my neighbor Calem and then his friends in Aquacorde; one of which gave me my very first Pokémon, Fennekin and my very own Pokédex. They were all really nice, even gave me a nickname of their own- Lady H, I like it.
I named my Fennekin Br’er after stories my mother used to tell me when I was little. He is such a cutie, even if I can already tell he’s going to be a bit too serious most of the time.
After talking a bit more the five of us parted ways, though Shauna held me back wanting a battle. My little Br’er kicked some ass. Two hits and her Chespin was done for. I celebrated by feeding him some Poke Puffs and just talking to him for a bit. I knew we needed to get to know each other better before we could really start our journey.
Went back home after that, wanted to tell my mom the news, she was excited for me. She packed me a bag before sending me on my way, I think she was more excited about this journey for me than I was for myself. Haha! I took one more ride around our yard her Rhyhorn, who knows when I’ll get to see him again. Too be honest I’m gonna miss him. He’s been around since I was born. I couldn’t dwell on it too long, I had exploring to do!
I took off for Santalune because that’s where I heard the first gym was. I don’t really know if I’m excited to have to beat all the gyms. I’m pretty much just wanting to see all the different types of Pokémon! I can’t believe how many there are.
On the way I met up with everyone again, we wandered around a forest for a bit and Shauna helped me when my Pokémon were feeling low. I saw a lot of really neat stuff and found a lot of dropped items. I was a little wary in catching my first Pokémon and wanted to wait for something that felt right and so I ended up raising Br’er a few while before running into a Pikachu. I managed to snag it after only two hits! I named him Ampere and we’re already a great team!
We stayed in the forest for a bit longer to train, but soon went on our way to Santaluna where Br’er, Ampere and I easily beat the Gym leader Viola.
It was only because I was so excited that I decided to continue on my way right after beating the first gym. (Not without stopping by a PokeCenter first). That night I headed off towards route 22, which ended up being the wrong way! They told me I couldn’t get by because I didn’t have enough badges. I turned right around, not wanting to risk getting my Pokémon hurt and went back to train a bit. Ended up running into a Riolu! I managed to catch him after a few quick hits from Ampere. He’s great!
When I realized I couldn’t do much more in the area I headed back towards Santaluna and then on towards Lumiose City. Met my friends on the way- oops! Looks like I should probably go, the guy who’s computer I borrowed is shouting at me. People shouldn’t jsut leave their things sitting on tables and wander off if they don’t want others to use them!
Well, I’ll check in when I can.
