Someone suggested that I make a thread for creating the Pokemon GO fanfiction, from now on, so this is that. All parts will be posted here. I’ll put parts 1-5 here, and Part 6 will be uploaded tomorrow.
Pokemon GO, Amber Gracedia! Part 1: Lost and Mugged
My name is Amber Gracedia. Where I come from, I’m a seasoned trainer, where I’ve fought all Pokemon leagues and won all of the gyms, got all of the badges, and beaten the Elite Four. However, throughout my journeys, there is one man that is bugging me… Giovanni: the leader of Team Rocket.
First in Kanto, he tried stealing the Master Ball from Silph Co. and his team had also done horrible things, from killing a Cubone’s mother and abducting Mr. Fuji. He turned out to be the eighth gym leader, but after I beat him, he told me that Team Rocket would no longer exist… What a liar. Second, in Johto, Team Rocket decided to operate without his orders. They chopped off Slowpoke Tails and sold them as rare delicacies, they had a strange operation at Mahogany Town, where they got enough power from abusing some Electrode and they caused the Magikarp in the Lake of Rage to suddenly evolve into Gyarados, and they hijacked the radio tower in Goldenrod City, for whatever reason. Plus, Giovanni’s son, Silver, was a pain and a half, so I eventually beat him up and sent him to the hospital. Lastly, a parallel version of him appeared at the Aether Paradise, where he was able to gather parallel versions of other evil leaders I’ve fought against. There is one thing that bugs me… He told muttered this, before leaving:
“Now…what new world shall I unleash my evil schemes upon…?”
So… Somewhere, he’s lurking. I think I’ve pinpointed where he is. A Celebi and I have determined that he could be in a parallel world, where the rules of Pokemon… are different. Gyms are different… Fighting is different… and there exist teams you can join, but the teams are not evil… I’ll only bring a few Pokemon with me, since I have no idea if I can bring everyone else… But, I’ll do anything to stop Giovanni and whoever his cohorts are! I climbed to the top of the Spear Pillar and had Celebi, Dialga and Palkia send me to the universe that he’s lurking in…
I ended up somewhere strange… It was unlike any region I’ve been to. There were strange blue things around me. There were odd structures that were either blue, red or yellow. I thanked Celebi, Dialga and Palkia as the wormhole closed up. I noticed that my all of the Pokemon I caught were somehow transferred with me, on my special phone that is unique only to my region. I’ve decided to carry on… Suddenly, I saw a man. His outfit and demeanor was very… Strange. I soon came to find out his name was Arlo. However… The thing I noticed was the “R” on his clothes. TEAM ROCKET! I found one!!
I shouted, “Hey you, scrub! I’ll make you feel sorry for ever joining Team Rocket!”
He jerked around and glared at me. “Such insufficient words… I’ve never been beaten before… My sole purpose in life is to win. I’ll vanquish whoever dares to get in my way.”
I got super excited. “Well, then I’ll make this your FIRST!”
… I got cocky. He had sent out a Bagon that my Mewtwo was barely able to take out. I struggled with fighting his Pokemon, since I had no idea how it all worked. As soon as I had figured out… Garchomp and Mewtwo had already fainted. My last hope rested on Umbreon… It couldn’t do anything against Salamence… It somehow had gotten weaker! I had lost to him.
“Don’t waste my time.” He said.
I was shocked. “What!? I lost!? You’re… Kidding… I’m a seasoned veteran, from-”
He cut me off. “I’ll stop you right there. I was gonna set you free, like every other lowly trainer I’ve fought, but this time. I think I’ll take those Pokemon of yours.” I had to run from him. I ran and tried hiding inside an alley, but… I carelessly tripped over a giant crack in the floor… He caught up to me. I was screaming, “Wait… DON’T COME CLOSER!! I… NOOO!!”
“Your resistance is futile. Your Pokemon are mine.” He tried grabbing my bag from me, but I wouldn’t let him. He then started mugging and punching me! I cowered over my own bag, trying to protect it… My back and shoulders were hurting.
I almost gave up… “Just take my Pokemon… GET ON WITH IT!!” I rolled over, in pain and tears… I didn’t want to look at him anymore. Soon… I heard a voice. “Hey man! What you’re doing to this trainer, is NOT. COOL.” It DEFINITELY wasn’t Arlo’s voice, as it sounded younger than his. I was too afraid to see who it was… I could hear multiple Pokemon shouting and… Zapdos? I thought I heard one… I was too scared to see what was going on. Soon, I heard Arlo say, “I haven’t felt this much humiliation since I lost my battle with Candela… You’ll pay for this, Spark!” He ran off. I heard someone come closer to me. I was still scared to move. I couldn’t move. My arms and back were too sore for me to get up… He tried talking to me.
“Say miss! You okay? I saw that creep mug you, so I hurried over.” He said.
“Urgh…” I was crying, “WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!! I WANNA GO HOME!! I WANT MY MOM!! I HATE IT HERE!!”
He asked me, “You hate it here? Are you not from here?”
“I’m from another region… I’m from another world… I came here, because I am tracking down… Giovanni… but, if I can’t fight someone like, THAT MONSTER, WHAT GOOD AM I!?” I turned to him with tears in my eyes. I couldn’t see this man clearly. “Just leave me here to die. I’m not worth it…”
“Excuse me!? You tried fighting an admin, after you had just got here, as you claimed!? You definitely are “worth it.” If you want, I can escort you to get you healed up.” He offered to help me up. I tried reaching for his hand, but… I screamed in pain.
“Gyah!! I can’t move!! You’ll have to get an ambulance!” So… He did. He escorted me to the hospital. I was there for several hours, but as soon as I could see him clearly… it made me happy. I was soon happy to be in this world… I shyly told him, “I’m… Amber. I’m so glad you helped me out!!”
“It’s what I’m supposed to do. I look after my trainers and Pokemon. My name is Spark. I am the leader of Team Instinct. After you’ve recovered, how about I take you to meet Professor Willow and the other leaders?”
I nodded and blushed. “It would be an honor.”
Pokemon GO, Amber! Part 2: Which Team?
Amber and Spark decided to chat, while Amber recovered. Spark remembered, “You said you can from another world… What was that like?”
Amber said, “I’m from an undisputed region, whose name has to be kept a secret, for government purposes. It’s a region that’s close to the Unova Region. I was born in the Orre Region, which is close to the Unova Region. I was surprised to see that scary guy had Shadow Pokemon on him. I was shocked and I’m thinking, is Team Cipher here!? I thought that they ceased operations, once and for all…”
Spark looked confused. “Team Cipher? Sorry, but I only know who Team GO Rocket is.”
“Maybe I should tell the other leaders about Cipher as well… But, Team GO Rocket? I am familiar with Team Rocket and Team Rainbow Rocket, but not the GO version…” Amber asked, “Have you fought any of the admins before?”
“Yes. There was this lady-” Spark was cut off.
"WHO IS SHE!? WHERE’S THIS BROAD!?"Amber jerked forward too hard, while shouting and… “Ghhh. My back!!”
Spark looked a little scared, “um… She was intimidating, but I managed to pull through. You see, I had my suspicions that they were going to turn Eggs into Shadow Eggs. They’d hatch into Shadow Pokemon. I took this radar with me, to find out if my suspicions were true, and there she was: the fearsome admin, Sierra!”
“Sierra… She’ll be the first to…” Amber cackled. “Sorry. I’m constructing a plan.”
“Okay… I’m unsure how long it’ll take for you to recover, but I’ll wait right here.” Spark waited with Amber. It took a couple of days, but soon enough, Amber was able to move around! “So, you’ll be discharged?”
“Looks like it!” Amber was happy. “Could you please show me where the other leaders are?” Spark then took Amber to a mysterious lab. There, she finally met Candela, Blanche and Professor Willow. “Guys, I brought someone new!” Everyone was curious.
Professor Willow saw her. “So, a new trainer?” He then introduced himself. “I am Professor Willow, the professor of this world. I see you’re acquainted with Spark.”
“You see… He saved my life!” Amber said, shyly. “I was mugged by team Rocket and I was lucky enough for him to be there.”
“Is this true?” Willow asked Spark.
Spark said, “Yes. I heard a lot of screaming, and low and behold, Arlo was mugging her! So came her savior: ME!!”
Amber quietly giggled and blushed. “It is true.”
Candela was shocked, “Arlo!? What did he do to you!?”
Amber said, “He… He punched and mugged me! I lost to him, because I have no idea how fighting in this world works!! It’s different than how it works, from my world! I was fearing he’d steal all of my Pokémon!”
Candela was upset. “How dare he hit a strong and healthy lady! This is unforgivable and disgusting.”
Balance nodded. “It is quite loathsome, indeed. However, I’m curious about what this lady said.” He looked at Amber, “You stated that you came from an entirely different universe. Is that correct?”
Amber nodded, “It is. I came here, via Celebi, Dialga and Palkia. Palkia was able to send me here, because I’ve heard that this world is in danger. Palkia can distort space with Spacial Rend. Dialga made sure I was sent to the right time period with Roar of Time. Celebi also helped out with traveling me here. Those three Pokemon are not with me, since I feel like they’re necessary to help keep the balance of the universe intact. I’m here, because of Team GO Rocket, or so they’re called. I want to get stronger, so I can stop them all. But…”
“But what?” Asked Spark.
“Arlo scares me…” She lifted the back of her shirt and showed everyone the graphic bruises, blisters and scars.
“WHAT INSOLENCE!” Candela screamed and then ran outside, in a rage.
Blanche was in shock, “One singular man did all this damage to you!?” Amber weeped and nodded. “Such a detestable being…”
Spark said, “I can definitely see and envision Amber defeating him. It’ll take a while, but I have high hopes that she can do it.”
Soon, Candela came back, with a smirk on her face. “I sent him packing, out of pity. Arlo won’t be smacking you, for a little while.”
Amber cheered up. “Thanks, miss. Um… Can you guys tell me your names?”
Professor Willow said, “So, these three are my colleagues. Part of their research is conducting Pokémon battles at Gyms. They’ll be more than excited to have you join as a team member.”
Spark said, “I guess this’ll be my formal introduction to you. The name’s Spark — the leader of Team Instinct. Pokemon are creatures with excellent intuition. I bet the secret to their intuition is related to how they’re hatched. Come and join my team! You never lose when you trust your instincts!”
Blanche said, “I am Blanche, leader of Team Mystic. The wisdom of Pokemon is immeasurably deep. I am researching why it is that they evolve. With our calm analysis of every situation, we can’t lose!”
Candela said, “I’m Candela — Team Valor’s leader! Pokemon are stronger than humans, and they’re warmhearted, too! I’m researching ways to enhance Pokemon’s natural power in the pursuit of true strength. There’s no doubt that the Pokemon our team have trained at the strongest in battle! Are you ready?”
Amber said, “And… I’m Amber Gracedia. I won’t rest until all of Team GO Rocket is defeated and they ALL BOW BEFORE ME!!” Everyone just stared at her. “But… If you must ask, I’m interested in how Pokemon feel about humans and other Pokemon, if that makes sense.”
Professor Willow then asked Amber, “Now that you’ve been introduced to the team leaders, who do you want to be part of?”
Amber was very indecisive. “Um…” She was blushing. “You see… I’m a bit hesitant to joining a team, because back in my world, those “teams” that I know about are evil: All of them. Team Rocket, Team Magma, Team Aqua, Team Galactic, you name it. I’ve had to fight them so much that I’m not used to associating teams as being… not evil. It feels weird.”
“Rest assured, there are no possibilities of our teams being evil,” said Blanche. “However, I do understand why you give teams a negative connotation.”
“Everyone is so friendly, though… Can’t I just make my own team?”
“Huh!?” Spark’s jaw dropped. “Make a new team!?”
“I’m not sure if that’s possible…” Blanche said, “is it, Professor Willow?”
“Your own team? What would it be called?” Professor Willow was amused and wanted to see where this was going. Soon, Amber showed them something that’d shock all of them…
Pokemon GO, Amber! Part 3: Just a Thought
Amber showed them a Master Ball. “I’m not sure if you’ve ever seen one of these before, but this is a Master Ball.”
Blanche said, “Ah yes, the Master Ball. It’s a Poke Ball that can’t fail at catching a Pokemon. Even if the Pokemon tries to knock it away, the Master Ball will ignore that particular type of collision and it’ll work at catching any Pokemon, without fail.”
“So you DO know what it is. Impressive.” Amber moved on, “In this Master Ball, there is a Pokemon. I’ve noticed that you all have Legendary Pokemon, representing your team’s: Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres. For me and my team in theory…” She threw the Master Ball and out came Mewtwo! “This would be that Pokemon! The one that’d represent my team: Mewtwo!”
Professor Willow was shocked. “Mewtwo!? This is one of the few times I’ve ever seen one up close! How did you catch this one!?”
Amber explained, “It all started with Team Rocket. You see, Mewtwo here is a cloned Pokemon. Team Rocket found a Mythical Pokemon named Mew, deep in a jungle. They were able to capture Mew and they ran several experiments on it. One of those experiments resulted in Mewtwo. However… Mewtwo didn’t like how Team Rocket was treating it, so it destroyed the entire lab that it was created in, and Mewtwo ran away… It hid inside a cave that was blocked off, in fear that if anyone came across Mewtwo, it would be used for nefarious deeds. I found it, while training up my Pokemon, since I had lost against the Elite Four. I was able to sneak into the cave it was hiding in and I convinced it to join my team… It is one of, if not the most powerful Pokemon I’ve ever owned. This is my “secret weapon,” for defeating all evil teams. It’s slowly warmed up to me, over the years, despite hating humans. Now that Giovanni is here, I wanna surprise him… Psystrike will make him weep!” Everyone was in awe over Mewtwo.
Spark said, “I’m shocked that you’ve managed to tame this Pokemon!”
Amber replied, “Same here. I feel like Mewtwo and I understand each other.”
Spark was intrigued, “How so?”
Amber said, “I was born in the Orre Region. This desert-like region is a very interesting place, but for a lot of the wrong reasons… I told Spark that I was shocked to see Arlo with Shadow Pokemon here, in this odd universe. I’ve seen Shadow Pokemon before coming here.”
Blanche was intrigued. “This is something I’ve never been informed of. Shadow Pokemon existed in your universe, too?”
Amber nodded, “They did. However, they weren’t made by Team Rocket. In fact, they were originally made in collaboration between two teams: Team Cipher and Team Snagem. I’ll tell you all about the history of Shadow Pokemon…” Everyone listened, “In the Orre Region, there were two teams: Team Cipher and Team Snagem. Team Snagem stole Pokemon from trainers, whereas Team Cipher dealt with making them into Shadow Pokemon. One man named Wes, was an ex member of Team Snagem. He had realized what was going on, so he stole a device called a Snag Machine, blew up part of Team Snagem’s base, and ran off. He later met a girl named Rui. Rui had a unique power, where she could tell if a Pokemon was a Shadow Pokemon or not. Because of this, Rui decided to help Wes capture all of the Shadow Pokemon and stop both teams. Thankfully, he was successful… Until five years later… A luxury ship named the S.S. Libra, was lifted into the air, by a strange purple colored Lugia! This was Cipher’s ultimate comeback. This Lugia was codenamed XD001 and was said to not be able to be Purified at all.”
Candela asked, “Is that even possible!?”
Amber shook her head, “Nope. XD001 was able to be purified, despite all claims of it being able to resist purification. Anyways, a young man named Michael was the one to stop Cipher this time. Also, Team Snagem had no affiliations with helping Team Cipher out. The professor of the Orre Region, Professor Krane, helped develop the purify chamber. This was a chamber that could purify up to nine Pokemon at once. He was also kidnapped by Team Cipher, who had begun to make Shadow Pokemon again. After Michael saved the professor, he set out to take down the whole team. He was successful…” Amber then said, “Until now, seeing as Team GO Rocket somehow made Shadow Pokemon. I’m honestly convinced someone was an ex Cipher grunt or commander and they’re now working for Team GO Rocket. However, that would mean that they somehow traveled to this universe… But then again, it’s a theory.”
Professor Willow said, "That was quite the history lesson! But… you’ll need a team name, since each team leader had a name for their team. What would yours be?’
Amber said, “Team Redemption. I chose this, because I’m seen as a rebel and a threat by all evil teams. In fact, one of the past Cipher admins was somehow the governor of the Orre Region, and my family and I opposed his actions, after hearing about his beliefs and actions. The Orre Region itself is home to many ruffians, because of how corrupt the political system is. There isn’t much Justice in the region, sadly… However, once I became a stronger trainer, I was able to bring justice to that region. Now, everyone is living in peace.”
“Interesting idea.” Said Willow, “Unfortunately, the rules state that only three main teams can exist. It’d be interesting to have a fourth team, but the rules are rules.”
“I understand. Plus, I just wanted to humor you a little.” Amber turned towards Spark and blushed, “However, I’ve made up my mind. I think I’ll join whatever team Spark is on. Please don’t take this the wrong way, or think ill of me…” Amber hid her face. “I just think he’s cute after saving my life…” Spark looked a tiny bit embarrassed, but he was happy. Amber didn’t understand that he was happy. “Oh no! I embarrassed you! Damn it… I’ve always been bad at confessing my feelings… but, this is how I feel.”
Spark assured Amber, “You didn’t do anything wrong. I thought it was cute that you felt this way about me. Now… Do you have any other Pokemon on you?” Amber showed everyone her Pokemon. She had a starter from every region, and several other strong Pokemon. There were two that stood out from the group: the Umbreon and Garchomp that had fought Arlo. “This Garchomp and Umbreon. They look different than usual.”
“That’s because these Pokemon were survivors of being experimented on.” Amber showed them, “On Garchomp’s dorsal fin, there’s a chemical burn that’s been there for a long time. For some reason, she’s a lot stronger than usual Garchomp… For Umbreon here, it was infected with a neurotoxin and it completely changed a good portion of its DNA. Because of that, this Umbreon looks different. Back in my world, it had an ability called Battle Bond, where if he knocked out a Pokemon, he’d change into a much stronger form. But… I’m surprised to see that it’s permanently in its Battle Bond form. I wonder if it’s because of time traveling… I’ve heard that there are drawbacks to time traveling and I think it being stuck in this form is a drawback from time traveling and universe hopping.”
Spark then said this to Amber, “Thankfully, their IVs are impressive! They both look like they can really battle with the best of them!” Amber noticed they all had perfect IVs. “Sadly, some of your Pokemon don’t have the best IVs.” Amber was sad to see that her Emboar, Steelix, and Gengar had no IVs. “But, you still have some nice Pokemon! Hopefully, with my help, you’ll be destroying Team GO Rocket, in no time! Now, let’s go train, Amber.” Amber and Spark left the lab…
Pokemon GO, Amber! Part 4: The First Grunt
Amber and Spark began to roam around the strange city that they were in. He explained a few things to Amber. “First off, I’ll teach you a few things about this world.” He showed Amber a strange structure that looked cubical, but as they got closer to it… It was shaped like a flat poke ball. It was also blue. “This is a
Pokestop. By spinning the middle part of it, you’ll get items. Go ahead and try it.” Amber followed his orders and she got some berries and a Poke Ball. “There ya go! Now…” He saw a wild Caterpie. “There’s a Caterpie over there! Let’s see if you can catch it.” Amber was gonna throw out her Umbreon, but… “Um, Amber? What are you doing?”
Amber said, “In my world, you have to send out a Pokemon to fight a wild Pokemon, even if you’re just gonna catch it. It can be helpful, because it can weaken the wild Pokemon, and then weakened Pokemon are easier to catch. Sleeping and frozen Pokemon are even easier to catch!”
Spark then said, “The rules are different here, though. Everyone throws Poke Balls at the wild Pokemon, until it’s caught.”
Amber then understood. “There is a place called the Safari Zone, where those rules apply. You can also either feed Pokemon or throw rocks at the Pokemon, in those places.”
Spark was intrigued. “Well… I guess then this world is like a gigantic Safari Zone, then. Is there a difference between throwing food and throwing rocks?”
Amber nodded, “There is. Throwing a rock will make them easier to catch, but more likely to run away. Throwing food will make them less likely to run away, but harder to catch. I never really been in a Safari Zone, except for the one in Kanto, where I finally caught Dratini! It took HOURS, but it was worth it! I’m just worried if throwing a berry will make it hard to catch, since I can’t weaken it…”
Spark assured Amber, “It won’t. Razz Berries actually makes a Pokemon easier to catch!” Amber gave it a try and… It worked! The Caterpie was easier to catch. “Now, you’ve caught something, so… You can appraise it, where I can tell you what it’s IVs are, or you can tra… Tran… fuh…” He had some difficulties saying this word, “Transfer it. You’ll get candies for doing so. Also, I almost forgot… You should take these with you!” Amber got an Infinite Egg Incubator and 50 Poke Balls. “This’ll help you start out.”
“Thanks Spark!” Amber was very excited, but… She saw an odd Pokestop. “Hey, what’s up with that Pokestop? It’s all… Jittery…”
Spark looked concerned. “Oh geez. “They’re” over there.”
“Who’s over there!?” Amber asked him, “Is it that MUGGER!? I don’t feel ready for redemption!”
Spark said, “It’s not Arlo, but it’s someone almost as equally as tedious.” He walked over there and sure enough, there was a Rocket Grunt! They looked at Spark and said, “OH no way! I am not dealing with you! I think I’ll…” They saw Amber and she squeaked in fear, “They look far weaker than you!” They challenged Amber to a fight. She was beginning to back up. “Why are you running!?”
“I can’t… I can’t fight… I don’t know how to!!” She threw her bag at the grunt! “Just take my Pokemon! DO IT!”
“Nonsense!” Spark ran, grabbed Amber’s bag and returned it to her. “I’ll show you how it works. Just watch me…” Amber watched closely as he pulled out a strange device. It was similar to Amber’s Poke Phone, but it was different. The phone was guiding his Pokemon’s attacks! His Zapdos was sent out. The grunt had a Shadow Mudkip, Shadow Golduck and Shadow Poliwrath on them. He plowed through their pokemon, but he showed Amber some tricks. “Now… watch this…” His Zapdos got ready to use Thunderbolt. She payed attention to how he was helping Zapdos charge up, by using the device that he had. The Thunderbolt took out Golduck. The Poliwrath was getting ready to use it’s charged move.
“AH! Be careful!!” Amber screamed.
“Not this time!” Spark activated a shield around his Pokemon. It blocked Poliwrath’s Ice Punch from hurting Zapdos. It was soon defeated by Zapdos! “Now… That’s how you fight against others. But now… I’ll let you catch this one!” A Shadow Mudkip was left behind. Amber could hear it suffering and cries for help. She immediately caught it.
“This Mudkip is suffering! I’ll need to purify it, fast!!” Amber was confused, “But… how do you purify it?”
Spark said, “You’ll need stardust and Pokemon candies. They’re given to you, after catching a Pokemon. Each Pokemon has its own type of candies.”
Amber asked, “Are they like Rare Candies? Do they level up Pokemon?”
Spark was confused, “Well… The Rare Candies in this world turn into the candies that the Rare Candies are used on. For example, if I used Rare Candies on Zapdos, they’d turn into Zapdos Candies. The Zapdos Candies will power up Zapdos. Each species of Pokemon have their own types of Pokemon. The candies that are specific to that particular species of Pokemon will only power up that species of Pokemon. I’m assuming that in your world, Rare Candies level your Pokemon up. Here, Pokemon don’t really have a level. Instead, YOU, yourself, has a level!”
Amber squeaked, “Oh. But… What level am I?”
Spark said, “Hmm… That’s odd. You’re level 1, but berries are given to trainers that are above level 8… I think that Pokestop is glitching out.”
Amber kinda broke down, “LEVEL ONE!? I’M WEAK!! I didn’t know that I was so weak! We need to train, now! I don’t like the idea of being so… Wimpy.”
Spark said, “You’re not wimpy, you’re just starting out. But trust me, you’ll level up faster than you’ll think! Now… Let’s go find some Pokemon.” Amber followed him around the city, but… The glitched Pokestop… Someone mysterious was listening to them…
“So that’s who Arlo mugged? How childish and annoying. She’ll be easy to take out, as long as that infuriating man isn’t near her!” They said to themselves…
