Mountains Are My Thing

The Narrator Wrote:Your quest for Ditto took you to Route 28 and you suddenly seem to come alive. The blank, greedy look leaves your eyes as you stare at the Pokémon Center.
It is abandoned. The upstairs windows have been smashed in, the lights are out and the front door is boarded over.

Someone has scrawled "Help, I need somebody" on the wall beside it in what is either blood or tomato sauce.
You've never really been sure which is which and you sure hope it's tomato sauce.

This is outside your experience.

Though of course, your experience consists of Pokémon battling, gambling, breaking up crime syndicates and standing on top of mountains.
It isn't exactly a surprise to anyone but your Snorlax (who thinks you know everything and tolerates you because it means you know which berries are poisonous) that you have no idea what to do about this.


"... ..."

Wait.

Maybe you do have an idea, after all!



> Walk to Vermilion City

The Narrator Wrote:This is the first sensible idea you've had yet, after trying to warm yourself up using Entei. You are feeling very proud of yourself!

If you head towards Vermilion, you will be going through Viridian and Pewter at the very least. You'll probably be able to find out what exactly happened here from either the gate guards from the Pokémon League or, failing that, the weird old man who lives in Viridian who seems to know all the gossip - sometimes before it happens.
Freaky guy that he is, his talent might come in handy today!

You can probably also pick up some Pokémon at the Center in Viridian. Nothing bad will have happened there, surely.

And once you're in Vermilion, you can go visit that old army guy you know. He can catch you up with news on Pikachu.


With your mind all set on this hike, nothing can possibly distract you! In the time it takes for you to think this through fully, you are within sight of the large golden canopy that overhangs the entrance to Victory Road.

Nothing seems to be amiss here, so you should probably go inside.

> Well what are you waiting for? Head inside.

The Narrator Wrote:You would totally head inside and look for information on what happened to the Pokémon Center but you suddenly remember that you have a Bag and that maybe you should check it!

> Check bag - maybe there's something useful in there!

The Narrator Wrote:There is indeed something useful in there!











The Narrator Wrote:"..."

Someone appears to have robbed your bag. It wouldn't have been that hard, seriously. You did have your back turned for most of the five years that you were on Mount Silver.
Maybe some of the challengers were short on money?

You're not sure. Either way, you don't have much left.
Looks like you have HM01, HM04, HM05, HM06 and HM08 but you're going to have to get new copies of the others.

You have a bunch of hold items that aren't of much use to you right now (EXP Share and stuff like that).

You have 99x Champion's Underwear, some flat Spare Batteries for your Pokégear and some Other Essentials, like a Stale Slowpoketail and an Unsual Sprocket Wrench.

You're not sure what the Unusual Sprocket Wrench does or where you got it but maybe you can find a use for it.

You have 10x Pokéballs, 1x Premier Ball and 1x Broken Master Ball.

You have a ticket to a Guest Address at Celadon U.

{ You have a Rusty Shovel.

You have a Train Pass.

You have a Teachy TV.

You have a Berry Pouch.

You have a Bike Voucher.

You have a Card Key.

You have a Coin Case.

You have a Opposition Parcel.

You have a Pokéflute.

You have a Rainbow Pass.

You have an S.S. SuperValue Ticket.

You have Tea.

You have a Secret Key.

You have a Basement Key.

You have a Ripped Contest Pass.

You have a Devon Briefcase.

You have Go-Goggles.

You have a Letter.

You have a Ring of Room Keys.

You have a Storage Key.

You have an Invitation.

You have a Pen.

You have a Locked Journal.

You have a Member Card.

You have a Pal Pad.

You have a Parcel.

You have a Point Card.

You have a Suite Key.

You have a Sinnoh Town Map.

You have a VS Seeker.

You have an Old Sea Chart.

You have a Tri Pass.

You have 1x Pangalactic Gargle Blaster Voucher.

You have a Tinfoil Replica Hat. }

Wow, you have a lot of stuff you could never possibly have any conceivable use for in your Bag! You should probably put it all in order sometime.

You don't remember getting half of this stuff at all. Your inter-regional tour was pretty much a blur.



> Before you head inside (if you are able to find a Pokéball in your bag) hurl said Pokéball with all your might in a random direction, hoping you may catch one of those assholes again. If not, at least there's a chance it'll hit one of them in the head and leave a bruise, right?

The Narrator Wrote:You pick up a Pokéball and lob it as hard as you can in a random direction.

"..."

It falls in a clump of trees with a dull thud. No way you're getting it out of there! You have better things to do than cut down a whole thicket of trees. Maybe Espeon could levitate it out, but you're not asking him for help.



> Ride the sign like a rodeo bull

The Narrator Wrote:You ride the sign like a rodeo bull. It remains uncooperatively fixed to the ground.

You feel like the effort that you made to climb to the top of the rather tall Route 28 sign was wasted and that you probably look quite silly perched on it like some sort of deranged tree-herding sign-cowboy.


You get off the sign.



> Contemplate the inordinate amount of sacrifices you have had to offer to the pagan god Uhcakip make to get to Victory Road on your previous journey.

The Narrator Wrote:You didn't actually realise you could somehow cross out thoughts as you think them! You will keep this in mind.

"..."

But you'll make sure it's crossed out.


You never actually made any major sacrifices to get to Victory Road on most of your previous journeys; Pokémon Trainer Red walks on regardless of whatever obstacles, distractions or dangers may be lurking on the path ahead of him.



> Scrawl something on the sign by the entrance.

The Narrator Wrote:You take out your Pen and scrawl "Not just anybody" on the Route 28 sign in small block letters, taking care not to obscure the "<--- West to Mt. Silver".

You wouldn't want anyone getting lost, now!


Safety first.



> If you have any poké balls with you, try to catch the next Pokémon you come across with one. If not, attempt to wrestle it into submis- er, I mean friendship so that it joins your team. After all, there are some vacancies at the moment.

The Narrator Wrote:You have some Pokéballs with you still, even after that one that you randomly decided to throw into the bush against all probability and sense.

You resolve to actually try and catch a Pokémon with the next one you throw. Failing that, you will break out your PRO WRESTLING SKILLS and show the world why you hold the world title for - well, something that isn't wrestling, that's for sure.

Maybe you can offer politely to be friends with it instead. After all, there are some vacancies on your team at the moment.

You mutter something under your breath about treacherous legendary Pokémon and why no-one should trust them or their progeny.
If they can even have progeny - there is a long-running debate between the people of Ecruteak and the researchers who have been trying to study the local legendaries.
The locals claim that the legendaries are somehow involved in their ancestory, while the researchers are struggling to persuade them that not only is it physically impossible, their union wouldn't -

You're not going to go into it here, you would rather not think about that sort of thing.



> Prank call rival.

The Narrator Wrote:There is no-one by the name "rival" registered on your Pokégear!

Curses, foiled again! And you had a really good setup to use on him, too!



> Have Snorlax sit on Espeon's Pokéball. Maybe it'll become more compliant.

The Narrator Wrote:You place Espeon's Pokéball in front of you and then back away a few metres.

You pick Snorlax's Pokéball up and - GO SNORLAX!

Snorlax is Asleep.

It doesn't seem to be making any noticeable difference. This definitely had the ring of a Silly Idea.



> Well you certainly aren't waiting for anything anymore! Head inside.

The Narrator Wrote:You walk inside, not noticing Snorlax and Espeon's Pokéballs levitating to your belt.

Just to build the tension, you close your eyes before you actually take a look around the lobby.

Line busy.


Next time you talk to Gary, you are DEFINITELY going to tell him he smells.



> Trip over something adorable once you leave the lobby.

The Narrator Wrote:You try to resolve to trip over something adorable once you leave the lobby, but it's like learning to fly. If you know what's going to happen, it won't.

You're not sure how this one will turn out!



> Contemplate your Espeon's treachery and consider having it thrown in jail for treason.

The Narrator Wrote:That's ridiculous! You love your Espeon to bits and could never bear to be without him!

You send warm, fuzzy thoughts in the direction of his Pokéball.



> Put on some shorts, they're comfy and easy to wear.

The Narrator Wrote:You don't have any shorts and even if they were comfortable, easy to wear and within reach, you would probably have trouble putting them on with your eyes closed.

Especially seeing how disconcertingly strong the smell is in the lobby of blood and... motor oil?



> Wait, is it a good idea for you to go to Viridian City considering that Giovanni or his cronies might still be kicking around there?

The Narrator Wrote:You'd almost prefer that Giovanni and his cronies were kicking around in Viridian City.

At least you wouldn't have to see all those stupid Vote Gary Oak signs!



> IDK, do a silly dance.

The Narrator Wrote:You do a silly dance. It is the silliest of silly, sillier than the summit of the silly slopes of Silver's sullen snotty snout.
You shimmy into a sudden samba and then stop because your Monty Python Cochlear Implant springs to life and you hear someone yelling "THIS IS TOO SILLY!"

You are ashamed of yourself for even thinking of indulging in this travesty of dance. You are really, really glad you had your eyes closed through all of that!



> Summon Raikou, god of hamsterdogs, to rain electricity about the place. Electricity makes light, right? And your eyes are closed, so it is dark.

The Narrator Wrote:You release Raikou and then promptly begin to wonder why you thought that was a good idea.

You can't see it, but somehow? You just know that Raikou has left.


The Pokéball in your hand is warm and smoking.



> Blame Eusine for loss of rude legendary Pokemon.

The Narrator Wrote:Your mind searches for someone to pin the blame on. You vaguely recall somebody who wanted to interview you and your Suicune years ago - he gave you a weird business card that looked like it was drawn by a five year-old?

You decide that that is cause enough for him to be blamed for this whole stupid legendary-losing mess.



> Equip 1x Champion's Underwear

The Narrator Wrote:Red is now wearing 2x Champion's Underwear and gets a bonus to Special Defence.
