Well, I arrived in Littleroot Town today. It was a long, crappy, boring ride. I was stuck in the back of the moving van.
Near the end of the ride, I spoke to Professor Birch on the PokeVid, he had a few questions for me before I got to town, but none of them worth mentioning.
When I got home, Mom told me that I’ve got my own room now, so that’s pretty cool! She called me downstairs while I was settling in and told me dad was on TV. He’s the Petalburg Gym Leader. I’m not sure why he was on TV, though. We missed that part.
I decided to head to Professor Birch’s place to introduce myself, but wound up meeting his daughter May, instead. She’s a bit of a nerd, but she seems nice enough. It turns out that Birch was out trying to catch PokeMon, so we went to go find him.
Well, we found him with no problem. All we had to do was a follow the noise and commotion he was kicking up by being chased by a PokeMon. This– this is the man that’s supposed to be a well-respected and well-known PokeMon professor? The guy’s a freakin’ idiot.
Either way, he said there were some PokeBalls in his bag, so I grabbed one and tossed it. A little green Treecko popped out and looked just as confused by the situation as I was. He gave me one of those looks as if to say “What the hell am I doing here? This again?” I just shrugged and told him the Professor was in danger. I guess this wasn’t the first time because he rolled his eyes and sighed in a very deliberate way. Almost like he was tired of this crap already.
Anyway, we beat the PokeMon chasing Birch, and he recognized me as Norman’s son. At this point, he invited me to his lab to talk a bit more like we’d intended to do before. He wound up telling me to keep the Treecko.
I’ve decided to call him Henry. He seems fairly happy to be away from the Professor. Can’t say I blame him one bit.
Professor Birch mentioned that I might be able to find May along Route 103, tracking down PokeMon. I really don’t know why I’d want to find her, or what it has to do with me, but what else were we gonna do?
After meeting Birch, I can see why May is a bit airheaded and dopey. It must run in the family.
Either way, I headed towards Route 103. Henry absolutely smashed a few wild PokeMon that decided to try and slow us down. This little dude is a powerhouse. We also seem to get along pretty well, so that’s a plus.
After smacking the wild buggers around, we got to Route 103, and sure enough, found May making a checklist of the PokeMon she’d seen. Then she wanted to battle because she’d gotten a Torchic from Birch.
Henry must’ve been as over it as I was because he didn’t waste any time smacking the little chicken nugget around.
After the battle she healed our PokeMon and suggested we go back to Littleroot. I really don’t understand why these people love backtracking so much, but what else were Henry and I gonna do?
Once we got back to town, we headed to Birch’s lab. He then praised me for beating May in a battle. Really not sure why, she’s more of a threat to herself while walking down a set of stairs than a threat to anything else.
Birch handed me a PokeDex and asked me to get to work on it. What the hell is with these people? It reminds me of a quote, but I can’t recall who said it. Some scruffy guy with a trench coat with weird sunglasses. “I didn’t ask for this.” Hmm, yea, that’s the one.
I guess I’m being ushered off on an adventure whether I like it or not. Oh well, they did give me some PokeBalls to use if I needed them. Maybe I can catch some friends for Henry.
Either way, it’s been a long, weird, crazy day. I’m going to bed. I’ll go save the world, or whatever silly garbage I’m being sent to do, tomorrow. Besides, I wanna hang out with Henry a bit more before we leave.
Well, I guess that makes it official, the Nuzlocke is alive and well again. Our new trainer has a bit of an attitude, though, doesn’t he? Maybe he’ll lighten up in the future? Who knows! You’ll have to keep checking back for new entries to find out.
Unfortunately, there aren’t any Gen VI trainer gifs, so I’m just using the classic one.
