Naruto: Johto Journeys
Chapter 1: In the Beginning
(A/N: I'm editing all my chapters to those who have read this before. This is my first NarutoxPokemon crossover. It has been itching at my mind to just write this story, so here it is. I hope you guys like it, also the team that Naruto will have has already been chosen so there will be no suggestions as to which pokemon Naruto will have. The towns will have the same names as they do in the games, both the Johto and Kanto because I think it will take too much time for me to remember what town I replaced for which area in the Narutoverse. Please review-K.D)

"Pokemon" Pokemon that can talk
One day, a youth from Pallet Town was called to meet Professor Sarutobi, a renowned Pokemon researcher. When the youth arrived at Professor Sarutobi's Pokemon Lab, a wonderful proposal awaited.
"There are three Pokemon here...you can have one. Go on, choose!" the Professor had told the youth. So the youth chose between Eevee, Pikachu and Jigglypuff and picked the Pokemon that seemed best, Pikachu. Then along came a rival- A.
A immediately challenged the youth to a Pokemon Battle, but the youth defeated A, showing great skill in doing so.
After seeing how well the youth and that Pokemon battled, Professor Sarutobi knew he had found a great talent. The professor then gave the youth an important mission.
That mission was to complete the Pokedex, a task that would require traveling through the entire Kanto region and catching all of the 150 kinds of Pokemon said to live there! With a heart of full of passion, the youth set out on the journey.
The youth had two goals in mind. The first was, of course, to complete the Pokedex. The other was to defeat Pokemon Gym Leaders throughout the Kanto Region, triumph over the Pokemon League and become the Pokemon League Champion!
The road ahead would be long indeed, But the youth threw Poke Balls, caught Pokemon, and- along with new friends-began to make this dream a reality.
At the first gym, the youth defeated the Pewter City Gym Leader- Onoki.
Then, at the second gym, the youth defeated the Cerulean City Gym Leader- Zabuza Momochi.
And at the third gym, the youth defeated the Vermillion City Gym Leader- Sakumo Hatake!
Trusting in the strength of the Pokemon, the youth overcame each Gym Leader who stood in the way.
But before long, a dark presence cast its shadow across this journey...That dark presence was ROOT- an evil organization that used Pokemon to do its dirty work as it plotted world domination.
ROOT had even done away with a Marowak in Lavender Town, leaving trainers there heartbroken.
The youth, along with those Pokemon, decided to put a stop to ROOT's crimes.
ROOT had opened a Game Corner in Celadon City to raise money, and the youth discovered the ROOT Hideout concealed in its basement.
Gathering courage, the youth snuck into the hideout. ROOT was no match for the youth, whose bravery was fuelled by good intentions, and step by step the youth approached the heart of the hideout.
Deep inside the hideout, the youth faced off against Danzo, the ROOT Boss. Danzo's Pokemon were known for their overwhelming strength...but still the youth pushed the Pokemon's powers to the limit and defeated ROOT's wicked leader.
With ROOT defeated the youth's glorious adventure resumed. Now the youth could do things like play the Poke Flute to wake a sleeping Snorlax or travel the Cycling Road on a bicycle!
At the fourth gym, the youth defeated the Celadon City Gym Leader- Tsunade.
At the fifth gym, the youth defeated the Fuchsia City Gym Leader- Orochimaru.
But the youth's string of victories was once again cut short by ROOT...ROOT had taken over Saffron City and occupied Silph Co. (the Silph Company) right at its center.
Once again, the youth battled Danzo, the ROOT boss. By now, the youth had grown so much that Danzo was no match for the youth's powerful team of Pokemon!
This time, Danzo admitted defeat and declared ROOT disbanded!
Now the youth was unstoppable, defeating gyms left and right!
At the sixth gym, the youth defeated the Saffrom City Gym Leader- Hiashi Hyuga.
At the seventh gym, the youth defeated the Cinnabar Island Gym Leader- Fugaku Uchiha!
But on reaching the last gym- the Viridian City Gym- the youth's heart skipped a beat.
The Gym Leader was none other than Danzo, who planned to revive ROOT.
The youth's victory was never in doubt in the final showdown with Danzo.
With a passion for justice and trust in Pokemon the youth crushed Danzo's villainous ambitions.
Eventually, after emerging from the long and arduous Victory Road, the youth reached the Pokemon League. At long last, it was time to fulfill that early dream.
The battles with the Elite Four were far from easy, but he managed to defeat all four of those powerful trainers. And finally he reached the Pokemon League Champion, who turned out to be his long time rival...A. A had grown stronger over the course of the youth's journey and nearly overwhelmed the youth.
But the youth believed in those Pokemon, and fought with determination.
And finally, victory was theirs.
Thirty years later
"Sugoi, that was a great story Okaa-chan" a young Naruto Uzumaki said to his mother, Kushina Uzumaki. Kushina chuckled as she looked through the window at the night sky of the Johto Region.
"Okaa-chan, did you know the youth?" Naruto asked his mother. His blonde locks were ruffled by his mother as she smiled at her son.
"Yes...I did" she said with far off look in his eyes, "his name was Minato Namikaze...you remind of him"
"Well since I'm going to be twelve tomorrow, I can finally get my first Pokemon" Naruto said excitedly, "and then I can be as strong as that Minato guy and...I'll be a Pokemon Master"
"Of course you will Naruto-kun...so have you decided which of the three starters you are going to choose from Professor Iruka?" Kushina asked. Naruto nodded.
"Yup, but I want to be a surprise so I won't tell you" Naruto said with a foxy grin. Kushina chuckled and then walked with Naruto towards the boy's room. Naruto then climbed into bed and smiled at his red haired mother.
"I will be a Pokemon Master, Okaa-chan. You can count on it" Naruto said before his eyes began to droop before fully closing as he dreamed of Pokemon and the journey he would have starting tomorrow. Kushina smiled before kneeling down and kissing the blonde pre-teen on his forehead.
"Kobanwa, my little Naruto-kun. I'll miss you" Kushina said before walking away and turning off the lights before retiring to her room for sleep.
'They grow up so fast' she thought with a smile. A white furred fox like Pokemon then ran up the stairs towards Kushina and rubbed its head up against her thigh. The Pokemon had nine tails swishing behind it, each tipped with a reddish orange colour. Its blood red eyes staring up at its trainer.
"It seems like yesterday, we had begun our journey, eh Kyuubi?" Kushina asked the Ninetails. Kyuubi, the Ninetails nodded before following Kushina to her room.
(A/N: Well that's chapter one. I know it's kind of short, but it was just an introduction. The next chapter will come out as soon as I can make it. Please review)
