Dreams are amazing things that always start out tiny. But as we grow older, our dreams that we carry along drive us to amount to great feats.
In this strange world, there are many creatures that inhabit it called pokemon. Alongside pokemon, humans are able to reach new and amazing possibilities. Some people prefer to have pokemon as pets and friends, others like to know more about them, and then there are those who strive to become strong with pokemon.
A new adventure was about to begin in the far away region of Kalos. For one girl, she was about to start her journey.
In the small city of Vaniville town, a young girl slept peacefully in her bed...
...until her mom's fletching woke her up with a tackle. Said girl fell to the floor on her back as the fletching landed on her bed.
"Thats not funny!" Yelled the girl. The tiny bird pokemon flew back downstairs, it almost sounded like it was laughing.
Erica Tamashii was a young girl, about thirteen years old. She had blonde hair that came down to her waist and gray eyes that went well with her medium skin tone.
Sighing, she walked over to her drawer and changed into her trainer outfit. A black shirt, pink hat, long red skirt, and a black shoe-knee sock combo to finish it.
"Alright. I guess it's time to start an adventure." She started to walk down to the stairs, and started to feel a little shaky.
'Not again.' Thought the blond as she continued to walk down the steps.
On a plane that was approaching the Kalos region, some passengers were here to meet up with friends and relatives. But two boys were up to something else.
One of them was sleeping however. The one that slept had a purple shirt with blue jeans.
"You'll practically sleep through the end of the world." Said the other boy with brown hair, a red shirt, khaki shorts, and glasses.
'Attention passengers, we will be landing shortly.'
"Guess that means that I should wake you up."
But the other boy with black hair was too deep in sleep to hear his friend try to wake him up. Despite all the yelling. However, he couldn't withstand a punch to the face.
"Really Brett, you need to sleep some more at night."
"I can't help it. Saturday nights are when you stay up the latest." Said Brett while he shrugged his shoulders. Brett Tairyoku was a fifteen year old, with brown eyes, who was from the Johto region. His friend, Keith Chiyoku, was also fifteen with hazel eyes and came from the Kanto region.
The other boy sighed in slight irritation at this. But something caught his eye. Outside the window, a flash of blue appeared for a mere second. The brown-haired boy tried to get a closer look.
"What did you see Keith?"
"Was it...Articuno?" Questioned Keith.
In a small city next to Vanville town, a group of kids were sitting around and talking about there upcoming adventures. Among them was Erica.
"And then we're gonna fight a legendary pokemon."
"Shauna, I don't think we will even encounter one of those." Said the boy with an orange afro.
"Well its better than what you'd do Trevor." Shauna stuck her tongue out.
"What about you Tierno?" Asked Erica to the boy wearing the Vanillite shirt.
"Well I'm gonna pursue my dance career."
They all smiled and laughed at each other's jokes before they decided that it was time to go and start their adventures. As Erica left she was given a container that contained three pokeballs.
"I think I'll take this one." She picked the pokeball that contained a frog.
"Oh, you must be a Froakie. I think I'll call you Jirai." The pokemon croaked in approval.
Erica started to feel nervous again. Although she hated to admit it, Erica didn't really like the thought of traveling alone. She was relying on traveling with one of her friends. But as she listened to their conversation earlier, she found that she really couldn't go through with any of their journeys.
She held a case that contained two other pokemon. And with them, two pokedexes. Erica was asked by professor Sycamore to give them to two other trainers. From what he had told her, they were foreign.
"The letter also says that they will be arriving here in about five minutes." Said Erica as she held up a letter.
This made her feel a little better, she had another chance to avoid traveling alone.
Meanwhile on a bus, Brett and Keith were hitching a ride to get to Aquacorde town.
"It's been a while since I had to rely on something besides a pokemon for transportation." Sighed Brett as he leaned back.
"Hey look at that. Some people are riding on pokemon." Pointed out Keith.
Out to the side, some people were on Rhyhorn and some people were riding on some kind of goat-pokemon.
"Cool. By the way, this is the girl that will give us the pokedexes and the starters." Said Brett as he held up a photo of a golden haired girl, she was holding a fletching in her right hand.
Keith stared at the picture for a couple of seconds.
"Isn't it odd?"
"What?" Asked Brett as he put the picture away.
"There is not one person with her in the picture." Noted Keith.
Brett looked back at it and noticed that there was indeed no other people with her. Sure, the picture wasn't too wide of a shot. But it did seem a little odd to the two of them.
They soon got off the bus as it continued on it's normal routes. Brett and Keith looked around before Keith noticed a blonde with a Froakie. He grabbed his friends shoulder for attention.
"Is that her?" Brett held up the picture.
"Yep that's her."
Erica was starting to think that these two guys were off doing some foreign crap. Her hope of traveling with others was all but gone.
"Come on Jirai." Her pokemon leaped onto her shoulder. Erica didn't want to admit to the fact that she felt scared of facing the world on her own. But it looked like she had no other option at this point. She looked down at her pokedex.
'At least I'll be with many pokemon.' Thought Erica, but that still didn't feel like it was enough to make her feel a hundred percent better. The blond thought back to the past about a young girl who was alone in a playground, holding a single trading card.
No sooner than that was she shaken out of her thoughts by a tap on the shoulder.
"Pardon me, but are you one of the people chosen by Sycamore?" Erica quickly turned around to see Keith as he held the photo.
'Wow...they seem kinda strange.' Thought Erica.
"Hello, I'm Brett and this is Keith." He extended his hand. However, Erica was thinking about him being odd.
She quickly realized that she was staring and reached out to shake the hand.
"Nice to meet you, I'm Erica Tamashii."
And this is where it begins.
