((Whups. I’ve been distracted with other things, as well as waiting for a response from squid which grows progressively less likely.))
((I’m perfectly okay with this being Hoenn somewhat in future from the canon.))
((From what I understand about levels, they’re still there…we just don’t get experience. Assuming squid is still watching this thread, he’’d periodically tell us that our pokemon leveled up based on (our/their) actions and we’d (add moves/ evolve) accordingly.))

The group of pokemon walks a little ways farther, and stop at a trainer laying against a tree, a small pile of berries surrounding him, each having a bite or two taken out of them.
“Oh! Hello there!”
No response.
“…uh…are you okay?”
The trainer looks up, his face flushed and obviously not feeling well, though he tries to smile through it. “huh?…oh good, another trainer. maybe you can help…we were picking mushrooms…I found a large one…turned out to be a parasect.” He lets out a wheezing laugh. “it spread stun spore…and I took a full blast to the face. my pokemon have been bringing me some berries from the nearby bushes, but none of them have helped.”
“Oh gosh, I’m sorry to hear that!”
“heh…it’s alright. not your fault. I don’t suppose you’ve got any Parlyz Heal…?”
I shake my head. “No…sorry…”

I definitely can’t carry him to Oldale town…so I’ll need to find something to help him around here. Okay…well…oh! There’s a lake right over there! If I recall correctly, Salveyo weed grows at the bottom of lakes, and that can heal paralysis! Well, it’d need to be brewed into a tea, but still! Better than nothing!

I take off towards the lake, and call back “I’ll be right back!” Jason and Eva run after me to the water’s edge, both somewhat skeptical of entering the water.
Quickly piling up my shoes, bag, and jacket, I run out towards middle of the water before diving down with a deep breath, a few Lotads moving out of my path.

((You could just go to a pond. Lotads do sort of just…float on them.))

I just sort of stare at the pokeball, which has long since stopped rocking and making noises.

…oh my gosh. Oh my gosh! I just caught a pokemon! :DD Oh man, I hope he doesn’t hate me for catching him. Or her!…I should probably check.

I pull out the pokedex and scan the pokeball.
Mareep, the Wool Pokemon. Mareep’s fluffy coat of wool rubs together and builds a static charge. The more static electricity is charged, the more brightly the lightbulb at the tip of its tail grows. Its fluffy coat swells to double as the charge builds up. Touching it can be shocking.
A list pops up with a small picture of Mareep, and I mutter it as I read. “Female…level 6…Tackle, Growl, and Thuder Wave. Cooooool! C’mon out Mareep!”
I toss the ball into the air, and Mareep reappears in a flash of red light. mareep.
“…well it’s good to know your attitude hasn’t changed!”
I chuckle, and put my hand on what appears to be its shoulder before pulling back from the jolt. “Oh! Oh, right! You store electricity in your wool!” mareep.
“…okay…oh! I should give you guys names, right?”
Bulbasaur kicks the pokeball laying on the ground to my feet, and seems to agree with my last statement. Bulba.
“hmm. For you…I’m thinking…uh…Jason?” bul-basaur!
I smile, relieved. “Jason it is then! And for you…Eva?” mareep.
My smile grows. “Awesome! Well, onward ever, backward never!” We proceed to walk a ways farther, and the grass seems to recede for a small area. “This seems like a nice area to stop. And hey look! Some Oran berries!”
Sure enough, a nearby bush seems laden with the blue balls. I pick a few and offer them to Jason and Eva, who proceed to eat them happily.

You know, these berries have healing effects too…I guess it wouldn’t be a bad idea to take some of them with me.

As I fill up an inner pouch of my bag, I walk around the bush and find a pair waist-high pink dogs standing on their hind legs.
Startled, I let out a yell. The pink dogs make some sort of yell/bark noise back at me, which startles me into yelling some more.

Oh gosh what do they want?! Why are they just standing there barking at me?! I shouldn’t continue to stand here!…ARE THEY CHASING ME?! I THINK THEY’RE CHASING ME! WHY AREN’T JASON AND EVA DOING ANYTHING? WHY ARE THEY JUST STANDING THERE TALKING TO THAT PURPLE DOG? …wait, they’re talking to that purple dog?

I stop abruptly, and the pink dogs seem to have been running around randomly in the cleared area and smack into each other. The purple dog grunts at them as they stand up and they rush to its side. Jason motions me over.

Bwah?


((The part with Katelynn and the Snubbulls running about would be better if I could draw it happening in a comic style. But I can’t, so you’ll just have to imagine like it happened in the anime.))

((…o…kay…I don’t think we need to number crunch that hard here. And if you are going to number crunch that hard, then that Ralts shouldn’t have Spacial Rend anyway. Maybe just pull back on the meta a little bit.))
((On a side note, I’ve got most of my team planned. Second generation pokemon gooooo.))
((Second side note, since no one’s defined Route names in the Ash region, I’m setting them at 151-199. Act accordingly. Or don’t, I can’t really force you to comply.))


Katelynn Smyth

Okay, got the pokeballs and pokedex stashed in my bag, already said goodbye to the parents, and I don’t think the professor saw me slip in and out. Having Bulbasaur out next to me might have given me away though…

A couple trainers seem to be plowing their way through the grass, horribly attacking any pokemon they come across. I decide on a different path into the grass, away from majority of them.

Flourescent City is the closest city, with only Route 151 between here and there. That’s mostly grasslands, so I’ll probably meet quite a few new pokemon! Although…I suppose not all of them are going to be friendly…well I’’m sure I can figure out some way to befriend them. And should worse come to worse…I guess Bulbasaur could protect me. I don’t know, we just met, and I hate the thought of sending him into a battle…Well, I’m sure it won’t come to…wait what’s that?

The object of my attention is a small orange ball sticking above the grass some ways in front of me. A blue face surrounded by yellow wool just barely peaks up at me from the grass, before dipping back down. Confused, I scan the area with the pokedex.
Mareep, the Wool Pokémon. Mareep store static electricity in their wooly coat. They avoid battle and have mild dispositions.

ooooooh. cooooool.

I tentatively step towards it, pokeball in hand.
“Hey little friend.”
The Mareep looks up at me and gives a casual mareep
I gently toss the pokeball at it, wanting it to tap the creature more than hit it.
The ball lands short and gently rolls to a stop directly in front of it. mareep?
“Oh…uh…that’s embarrassing. Let’s pretend that didn’t happen.”
I toss another pokeball, giving it enough strength to get to the target.
A flash of red light, and the ball rocks back and forth on the ground.
Once.
Twice.

Katelynn Smyth
Oh boy! Oh boy! Today’s the day I get my own pokemon!…Not that I don’t like the pokemon I help take of! I do! But that’s different, they belong to other trainers, or my parents. Today, I get a pokemon all my own! I hope she likes me. Or he!

A quick bowl of cereal, some orange juice, and a bowl of fruit and I’m off to the laboratory.
It seems that a couple other trainers have been here so far, as there are a few gaps in the lines of pokeballs. “Good morning professor!”
“Good morning Katelynn. How are your parents doing?”
“They’re doing well, as is that egg you brought us! They said it should be only a matter of days before it hatches.”
“Good, good! Well, if you’re ready for your adventure, take a look about and pick your partner.”
I step up to the first pokeball. A small picture of blue pokemon with a plant on its back lies next to it. “Oh-my-gosh this one’s so cute!”
Professor Willow steps over to me. “Hm? Oh yes, that’s Bulbasaur, a seed pokemon. If I recall correctly, it’s one of the few pokemon here NOT brought in by your family. Is he your choice?”
YES” I blush, not intending that to be as loud as it was. “…I mean…yeah…I’d like him…if that’s alright.
Professor Willow lets out a small laugh and hands me the pokeball. “He’s all yours.”
All I can manage is to suppress a squeal, accept the pokeball, and hurry out of the lab.

I’ve got a pokemon! :D

I run over to a small grove of trees which border the tall grass and call Bulbasaur out of the ball while spinning briefly.
“Hihi! I’m Katelynn! And we’re gonna be best friends!”
Bulbasaur assents! Bul-ba!
“Oh man this is so cool! I can’t wait to start adventuring with you! We’re going to go to so many places, and see so many new pokemon!” I gasp as I realize that I didn’t pick up the complimentary pokedex and pokeballs. I heave a great sigh and lean against a tree.

Oh gosh Professor Willow will think I’m such a ditz if I go back in now after rushing out like that. Stupid stupid stupid!

I feel a gentle nudge on my leg on look down to see that Bulbasaur is at my feet and has a very worried look on his face. Bulba?
I smile at the pokemon. “I’m okay, thanks. I guess I should’ve expected something like this to happen.”
I sit for a little while with Bulbasaur before working up the courage to walk back into the lab and get what I missed the first time.
((If a certain other character also in the trees near the tall grass (NimbusCloud) wanted to interact, then ignore the second part of that last action where she leaves to the lab. Or wait for her to do so and engage her when she gets back. Ball’s in your court.))

Not really; I’ve seen plenty of those. And don’t they have their growth spurts earlier than guys?

I dunno the heights of girls, I don’t exactly measure them. I was just going off the other femme who was 5’8" I believe. Katelynn can shrink, I suppose, not super relevant to the story
