Read Chapter 1[link]
The morning sun rises upon the ground and shines on the three pokemon's faces as they awake. Grovile was making some breakfast for himself and the four young Pokemon. He then said, "Good morning, friends, I have made breakfast for all of us. Eat up so we can train." Piplup yawns and gets out of his bed. "Morning Grovile!" Chikorita and Pichu also get out of their beds, with both saying "Good morning". Charmander then woke up and rubbed his eyes. Chikorita went to Charmander. "How'd you sleep, Charmander?" Charmander replied in a usual tired voice, "I slept good." Charmander looked at his father's necklace again, he decides to wear it so it is at a place he would not lose it than in his hand.
"C'mon, Charmander! Lets go eat so we can train!" said Chikorita with glee, as she is more hungry in food than training whereas the others are for training. Charmander catches up with Chikorita and the others to the kitchen. Grovile put roasted pecha berries and Oran berries in a platter with glasses of spring water. The four orphaned Pokemon, including Grovile, ate their food and went to a cave near Grovile's home, which is where they train.
In the cave, Grovile notices the necklace Charmander is wearing and says something to him. "I know who's that is, that is from your father's, isn't it? He was a wonderful student of mine." Charmander scratched his head in confusion. "Really? He was?" Grovile nodded. "Yes, he asked for my advice and wanted training, he was even as young as you!" Charmander seemed a little happy. "My dad trained with you? Wow..." Grovile laughed. "I trained him and trained him, and soon enough, he evolved into a Charizard and was very strong! I really hope my training will make you like your father." Charmander nodded. "That would be great! Thank you!" Chikorita goes to Charmander. "See, he's so awesome and kind!" Grovile replied back, "Thank you, Chikorita, I will set the stories later! Lets start training! And Charmander, we should make that new move of yours even stronger!" Charmander was now very determined compared to last night. "Yes sir!" Charmander yelled.
Grovile set out several punching bags and targets for the three pokemon's training. Grovile then led the Pokemon to their stations, and said, "Charmander, your station is where that decoy is over there. You should practice your Flamethrower on it!" The rest of the Pokemon went to their stations. Charmander nodded and went to his station. His decoy looked a lot like Slenderman. Chikorita's, Piplup's, and Pichu's decoys also looked like Slenderman. Luckily, rage in Charmander's heart made him use Flamethrower, and it was a direct hit on his decoy. Chikorita used her Razor Leaf attack on her decoy, direct hit. Piplup used Water Gun, making his decoy drenched in water. Pichu used Thunderbolt, making his decoy plasmic and practically destroyed!
Grovile applauded the wonderful display of the Pokemon's attacks, and said, "Nice job, my friends! I feel that you are almost ready to fight him. Just one more day of training, and you may evolve! Now, for this type of training, you four will fight each other. This will enhance your inner strength and constant determination." The four Pokemon replied with a nod. "Yes sir!" the four Pokemon cheered.
Charmander wondered who he should train with. He thought an idea, "I know that a grass type is weak against me, a fire type, and a water type is strong against me, electric types might get me off guard, I'll try battling Chikorita!" Then he said, "Hey Chikorita! Want to battle me?" Chikorita knew his plan, but said "Yeah, sure!". Chikorita gave Charmander the first move, so he used Flamethrower. Chikorita got thrown to the other side of the wall. Charmander really hoped she wasn't hurt. "You ok?" Charmander asked worried. Chikorita got up and nodded, "Yep! Nice moves! Now it's my turn!" Chikorita runs toward Charmander and uses Razor Leaf, but misses because Charmander dodges it. Charmander was really surprised at the thought he dodged such a powerful attack. Then he used Flamethrower once again at Chikorita and made her faint! Piplup and Pichu were watching and Piplup said, "Chikorita is unable to battle, which means the battle goes to Charmander!" Charmander went to Chikorita and got her up. "Are you hurt?" He asked in worry. Chikorita nodded, and said, "Yeah, I'm fine! That was awesome!" Suddenly, both Charmander and Chikorita began to glow. Grovile, Piplup, and Pichu gasped. Grovile was waiting for this moment. "They are evolving!" said Grovile.
Charmander began to grow and was stronger, Charmander evolved into Charmeleon. Chikorita's bulbs popped open and her leaf on her head grew as well, Chikorita evolved into Bayleef. Piplup and Pichu were cheering and applauding with joy, yelling, "Woo hoo! Ya, ya, ya!!!" Grovile was in tears of joy, "A truly wonderful display! You two evolved! Bayleef and Charmeleon, you are almost complete in training!" As both Pokemon were more teenaged, influential, and smart, they both thanked Grovile. Bayleef then said, "You should not just applaud us! We should let Piplup and Pichu train as well!" Charmeleon also agreed and said, "Yes, they should be strong like us!" Piplup and Pichu agreed, they wanted to evolve like them. "Besides," Grovile said, "you need to rest, you two battled yourselves as if it was the world's end! You should sit here on this bench." Both agreed and went to a bench near Piplup and Pichu's battle. Bayleef was limping a little, but Charmeleon got her a lift to the bench and set her down. Bayleef let out a sigh and said, "Thanks."
Grovile asked if Charmeleon would want to referee the battle, and he agreed, then started the speech. "The Training Battle again Piplup and Pichu will now commence. The battle shall begin!" Piplup wanted to start, so he used Aqua Jet at Pichu. Pichu dodges it and counters it with Thunderbolt, shocking the water and Piplup. Piplup got up and said, "You're great! But lets try this!" He uses Bubble Beam at Pichu. Pichu used Quick Attack, but Piplup's Bubble Beam made Pichu miss the attack. Then Piplup used Aqua Jet again, making a direct hit. Pichu flew across the room and hit the other wall. Pichu slowly got up, and used Quick Attack by running on the wall and hitting Piplup on the floor. Piplup still had the strength, and used Aqua Jet. Pichu used Quick Attack as well. The two Pokemon aimed at each other and made a huge explosion. Both Pokemon had their backs behind each other. Charmeleon watched closely at Piplup and Pichu to see who would fall first. Both Pokemon fell. Charmeleon waited if one would get up. Neither got up. Charmeleon then said, "Both Pokemon are unable to battle. The battle stands a draw!" Grovile was surprised. "How fascinating! Both Pokemon seem to have equal strength!" Charmeleon and Bayleef gasped. "They're evolving, Grovile!" yelled Bayleef with excitement.
Piplup grew a couple inches, feet even, and strange metal grew around Piplup, as if it had armor. Piplup evolved into Prinplup! Pichu grew in a plasmic glow his tail became a lightning bolt, had red cheeks, and longer ears. Pichu evolved into Pikachu! Bayleef and Charmeleon applauded at the wonderful evolution as well as the close battle they had. Grovile was crying years of joy, and said in a cracked voice, "My, friends...you all have evolved in one day. I am...very proud of you." Pikachu's electric moves were stronger and he learned Electro Ball! Prinplup's determination and somewhat short temper made him learn Scald! Pikachu let out a spark in excitement. "I can't believe this!" said Pikachu. Prinplup agreed. "Ya, to think all four of us evolved in one day!" Bayleef and Charmeleon went to congradulate Prinplup and Pikachu. "Well, it would not have been possible without Grovile!" Bayleef points out. The four evolved Pokemon applauded Grovile for their training. Grovile than answered, "Now, now, it also would not have been possible without your strength and determination!" All four Pokemon cheered for their training success! Charmeleon looked at his necklace and thought, "Thanks, father. For making me find new friends and finding Grovile."
Grovile wiped his tears and clapped his hands. "Come now, friends, it is getting late. Let us go and eat dinner, and sleep. If we train again tomorrow, there is a possibility that you might evolve once again!" Charmeleon followed Grovile. Bayleef said, "Hey, Charmeleon! Come here for a sec!" Charmeleon heard Bayleef and went back. "Yeah?" he asked. Bayleef kissed Charmeleon on the cheek, and said, "Thanks for battling me." Charmeleon was completely blushed, and said, "Uh, heh, heh, you're welcome!" Charmeleon and Bayleef ran to catch up to Grovile. Prinplup and Pikachu followed Charmeleon, Bayleef, and Grovile to Grovile's house for dinner. The four newly evolved Pokemon went to the kitchen to eat their dinner. Their dinner was not quite a banquet. It was just Pokemon food and lemonade, but to the Pokemon, it was a lot. Charmeleon thought the food was very scrumptious, and said in a mouth full, "Thanks for the food!" Bayleef started laughing at Charmeleon since he was talking with his mouth full. "I think your stomach should talk instead of your mouth!" Pikachu and Prinplup laughed with her, even Charmeleon! The four Pokemon talked while they ate about how excited they were when they evolved that day, as well as thanking Grovile many times while talking about it! After they ate, they got ready for bed. The four Pokemon and Grovile said "Good night" to each other and fell asleep.
Later that night, Charmeleon thought he heard someone laughing demonically and woke up. He looked around the house, but didn't see anything. "It's probably Prinplup laughing in his sleep, or something," he thought, "he'll probably stop doing that once he stops dreaming..." Charmeleon yawned and went back to bed.
The next morning was very cloudy and foggy, but not as foggy for the sun to shine. Prinplup woke up at a wink and said, "Morning Grovile! Is breakfast ready?" There was no answer. Prinplup became confused. "Grovile?" Prinplup called Grovile's name in the whole house. The plates in the kitchen were not even out yet. Prinplup felt nervous, and went to the other Pokemon to wake them up. "Charmeleon! Wake up!" Prinplup shook Charmeleon up. Charmeleon opened his eyes and yawned. "What's...wrong, Prinplup?" Prinplup was really nervous, and said, "You seen Grovile? He hasn't made breakfast yet!" Pikachu then woke up. "Ugh...hey guys, what's going on..." Bayleef woke up too. "Hi guys! ....where's Grovile?" Prinplup replied, "That's what I want to know!" Charmeleon thought for a second. "This is not like Grovile to not make breakfast...lets go check his sleeping spot." Bayleef and Prinplup followed Charmeleon to Grovile's sleeping spot on the tree branch. Pikachu still was in bed, strangely weak and was coughing. Bayleef was shocked at the horror. "Grovile!!" Bayleef shrieked. Charmeleon and Prinplup ran to Grovile. He was lying on the ground weak and was coughing several times. Bayleef felt Grovile's forehead, and said softly, "He's poisoned."
