Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gateway of Dreams

By RisingSerperior

Fantasy / Adventure

Prologue

The warmth of the day shines through the crystal clear windows as the sound of the Starly and Staravia sing in harmony, perched on the branches of the waving trees that stood past the gates of the village. The noise of the busy villagers of Starside Town would be enough to wake even a Snorlax, as Rescue Teams would rush to a Mystery Dungeon in order to help a Pokemon in need. The warmth of the sun, the waving of the trees, and the chirping of the Bird Pokemon outside told me to stay in bed and fall asleep once again, but the commotion outside would surly prevent that. Common sense took over, and I stood my self up, the flame on my tail igniting, ready to start a new day.

I walk across the wooden floor of the hut towards the door in front of me, passing dozens of pots, most of which contained items that didn't have much value. The haze of the sunlight reaches through the tiny gap between the door and the wall, revealing the particles of dust that floated in the air around me. I reach up for the bronze doorknob and twist it, pushing the door open and greeting the light of the sun into my home. For a second, the light blinds me, but my eyes soon adjust, and a crowd of Pokemon

comes into view, along with a long row of huts and a cloudless, blue sky in the background.

"Morning, Chase!" a Pikachu says to me as I walk onto the main path and towards the Kecleon Mart to get some food. "Mornin'!" I reply cheerfully, waving towards him as I carry on down the path. I pass a load of other Pokemon, ranging from Caterpie to Luxio, each of which friendly greeting me as I pass by. I finally arrive at the Kecleon Mart, which was located at the back fence of the village along with many other shops.

"Good morning there, Chase!" The Kecleon Brothers say simultaneously, one green and one purple. "Mornin' guys!" I reply for possibly the thirtieth time in a matter of five minutes. "Do you have any Cheri Berries? I need something to wake me up." I ask with a small yawn. "We're sorry, we're out of stock on Cheri Berries. We were going to go to the Berry Field to get some more, but we're having so many costumers today." The purple Kecleon tells me. "There's no way one of us would be able to manage the shop alone, so would you mind going to the Berry Fields for us?" He then asks me. "Sure, no problem!" I tell them with a grin. "Thank you so much!" They both say, yet again simultaneously. The green Kecleon hands me a large basket. "Could you get some Oran and Rawst Berries too? We've also run low on stock for them." He asks me. "Will do!" I tell him, rushing through the village, out of the gates, and into the forest covered mountainside. I run along the trail under the shade of the trees overhead. The wind blows fiercely, making the noise of the trees roar above everything else. I see more Starly and Staravia gliding along with the wind through the gaps in the leaves. The trees clear up a bit

to my left, revealing the forest below the mountain with the colourful meadow and shining Light Source in the centre, the glimmering, endless sea to the right with small islands scattered

around, and the towering mountains in the distance, some so tall that there would be a thick layer of snow at the peak.

I reach a large clearing in the woods. There is a cliff wall to my right with a small waterfall flowing from the top, forming a pond at the bottom of the wall. A stream flowed from the pond that cut through the path, into the woods, and over the cliff further on. The stream could easily be jumped over, but there were still stones that Pokemon could walk across. I, who wanted to rush to the Berry Fields, jumped over and carried on dashing down the path and back into the woods.

Later on, the path splits in three. The path on the left lead down the mountain and into the Emerald Woods below, the middle path, which went across the mountain, lead to the Mountainside Caves, which was a Mystery Dungeon. I follow the path on my right, which lead up the mountain and towards the Berry Fields. The trip uphill wears me down a bit, but I reach the top non-the-less, and

the Berry Field now lays before me. "Alright then..." I say to myself under my breath. "Let's get started."

I walk back down the path after at least half an hour of picking enough Berries for the Kecleon Brothers, the basket I carry now heavy with a ton of the three types of Berries they wanted. The wind had somewhat died down now, making the noise of the leaves rustling in the trees more bearable. I walk into the clearing again, intent on heading back to the village, when I spot something out of the corner of my eye. I turn my head, and in the water, there is a Pokemon I have never seen, lying there, motionless. I place the basket on the floor, and head over to it. Close up, I see that the Pokemon has green scales and a cream underbelly, like a snake. There are leaf-like arms that sprout from below it's shoulders with three fingers each. There is a large leaf on the end of it's tail, and a yellow line going from it's neck to the end of it's tail. There are also two yellow wing-like things that sprout from it's shoulders. "...Hey, are you OK there?" I ask the Pokemon, wondering if he was asleep or passed out. Hopefully not worse... "Hey! Can you hear me?!" I call out. There is still no reply from the stranger. "Come on! Wake up!"

It still doesn't reply. And it's only just now that I realise that it isn't breathing either. My thoughts turn to panic, and I realise that a good idea would be to get it out of the water before I do anything else. "(This is bad...)" I think to myself. "(This is really bad...)" I turn it over so that it lies on it's back, making it easier to pull it out. I grab both it's arms and begin to pull it out the pond, worrying that whatever Pokemon this was might actually be dead. However, my thoughts are relieved when I pull it half-way out of the water, because the Pokemon began to cough. "Oh! Hey, can you hear me?" I call out to it, getting in front and waving for a response. It opens it's eyes, which appear to be blue, and looks at me, shivering slightly from being wet. "Phew...You really had me worried there." I say with a slight chuckle, glad that this new Pokemon wasn't dead. "...Wha..." It begins to say weakly. "W-What in the hell?!" it calls out in a panicked voice. It's sounded like a boy. It scrambles out of the water, but trips over only a few feet away. "Hey...What's up?" I ask him, looking confused as to why he was so panicked. He scrambles up again looking as if he was struggling to stand. "Hey, it's OK. I'm not gonna hurt you or any-"

"W-WHAT!?" The Pokemon cries out again after looking at it's arms. The noise would be enough to wake the whole mountain if it was asleep. "I've turned into a Snivy?!"

Dru83: This is the second or third time I've read this one and I just love it. It has just about everything you could ever want packed into one scifi story. It still has some parts that are a little rough in terms of grammar, punctuation, and word usage, but it's still an awesome story. I love how detai...

littlebunnypoopoos: Omg this was so amazing! The ending was a little bad and predictable. But otherwise, I need a second book or I'll die :D The character development was excellent and the whole romance, action, and suspense was superb

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone. The writing style is almost broken- sentences move into each other awkwardly, and are filled with an excess of "filler words", lik...

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters. What I found special was that it took a modern day problem and took it to its logical conclusion and plays this realism with gritting precision. I'm always on edge ready to shout from adrenaline. This is gr...

CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel. The writing style itself is amazing because you can learn every character's thoughts and emotions. The awkward love triangle and jerk moments adds to the ...

ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did.

Lauren Sanby: This is an excellent story. Very gripping and keeps your attention throughout. Hoping the author is writing a sequel because I'd love to read more about Rhi and Andreas and find out what else Rhi is able to do with her powers.

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...
