Matthew and Minccino - first chapter
1294 days ago
Hi. My name is
Matthew. I would like to tell you about how all of this happened. If you don´t
know what I´m talking about, it is the day that I became a Pokemon and met the
love of my life. I was just sitting around in my room playing Pokemon Omega
Ruby. I had nearly every Pokemon in the game. All I needed to complete my
Pokedex was a Jirachi. I looked in the Global Trade Station for any possible
openings on trading for Jirachi, but there wasn´t any. It was pretty suprising
to me because normally, there are a lot of people trading Pokemon at the GTS.
So I decided to breed my Piplup and Ditto together in order to get a Piplup
egg. Pretty soon, I got it to hatch, and the first thing I did after hatching
it was I put it up on the GTS with a request for a Jirachi. Nobody responded
yet, so I figured that I would wait a little while. Again, nobody traded their
Jirachi with me. Now normally, at this point, I would have taken my Pokemon
back, but I was determined to get that Jirachi, so I waited a little bit longer.
But again, the same result. Days, I´ve waited. Months, I´ve waited. But still,
nothing. I was starting to lose hope that I would ever get a Jirachi. It was
really painful to think that nobody played Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha
Sapphire anymore. Then, on a summer night, I was up in my room, just looking
out my window, when I saw a shooting star. I wished for a sign that I would
somehow get Jirachi. I then went to sleep, being really tired at that point.
During the night, something really strange happened that I still can´t describe
up to this day. It felt like a dream, but it seemed too real to be a dream. I
was in a really weird place, and a voice in my head said, "Matthew, I´ve
heard about you. You´re still into Pokemon, even when everyone else had already
given up on it." I was shocked to hear the voice say this, but at the same
time, I couldn´t deny that everyone, including my friends, had stopped playing
Pokemon. Then the voice spoke again. "What if I told you that you can
actually get a glimpse of Jirachi?" Confused, but not wanting to pass up
the opportunity, I said in an awkward way, "Uhhhhhh.... sure, whoever you
are." "Good then." Then a door appeared
right in front of me. "Beyond this door lies a world of discovery that no
human has ever seen before. Go forth into it, and you will end up in the
magical world of Pokemon." I was surprised to hear this. "The world
of Pokemon? This seems kind of familiar." I thought to myself. But there
was no time to doubt what I was doing. I went through the door and entered the
Pokemon world. As I was approaching the world of Pokemon, my physical form
began to change. I still remember what happened. My body shrunk down to about
two feet, and I felt lighter than I usually do. My hands turned into stump-like
flippers. On my body, a shell started to form. I gained flipper feet, and I had
a tail coming out of my back. My face had rounded up, and my nose was
oval-shaped. My ears were smaller than usual. Looking at all these features, it
was pretty clear that I turned into an Oshawott. Of course, I didn´t realize it
until I woke up in the world of Pokemon.
Chapter 1: Enter the World of Pokemon
"Hey, are you
okay?" someone said. I couldn´t make out who it was cause I was laying on
the floor and unconscious. The voice spoke again. "Wake up. Are you hurt?
Say something." I could feel my consciousness coming back to me as my eyes
strained to open. When I finally opened my eyes, I looked around and saw that I
was near a lake. "Huh? Where am I?" I thought to myself. And as I
turned to see where I was, I saw a Minccino staring at me. "You´re awake.
I was worried for a second." the Minccino said, happily. I jumped back in
shock. "Waaaahh! Did...did...did you just talk?" "Yeah. Are you alright?" the
Minccino asked me. I was pretty creeped out by the sight of a Minccino talking
to me. "You´re really talking!?! Am I dreaming this?" I then pulled
my left cheek outward to test this theory. When it bounced back, it slapped my
face a little bit. "Oww!" I then rubbed the area where it hurt.
"Nope. Definitely not a dream." "Uhhhhhh.... is everything okay?" the
Minccino said, now confused. "How are you talking? You´re a
Pokemon!" I said, still baffled by this. "Just what are you, anyways?" The Minccino then stared at me funny, and then
said, "Oh surely you´ve seen a Minccino before." "Mi.. Minccino?" "Yep." Minccino then asked,
"Are you alright? You´re acting kind of weird for an Oshawott." I
then blinked my eyes for a couple of seconds with a dumbfounded look on my
face. "Oshawott?" Minccino then motioned for me to check my hands.
"Huh? What´s wrong with my hands? Is there something on them?" And as
I looked down at my hands, I noticed that they were white. "Ahhh! What
happened to my hands?" I then rushed over to the lake behind me to see my
reflection. When I looked at myself, I couldn´t believe what I saw. I was an
Oshawott. No doubting it now. "It´s true." I then said to myself.
"I´ve turned into an Oshawott. But how?" "Where are you from? I´ve never seen
around here before." Minccino asked me. "Well, I´m from..." I
then thought it over. I was trying to remember how I came here, but I could
only remember the magic portal that sent me here. "...Uhhh.... I don´t
know. All I remember was coming here through a strange door that was like a
gateway from this world and my world." "What? You´re not from this world?"
Minccino asked, really shocked from hearing what I said. I then said, "To
tell you the truth, I used to be a human before I came to this world. But I
don´t remember much about my life as a human." Minccino then looked at me,
confused. "A human? Are you joking with me?" "Do I look like I would be one to
kid?" "No. Of course not." Minccino
quickly said. "It´s just really weird that you were a human before. What
do you remember about your life as a human?" I then tried to remember. "Well, I
remember wishing upon a star, wishing that I could see a Jirachi. I also
remember sleeping and ending up in a weird place where a door between here and
my world was, and I remember walking through that door. Other than that, I
can´t remember anything." Minccino thought about all of this, and what
it must have been like. "Okay. I believe you." I then looked at
Minccino in shock. "What? You actually believe me?" "Sure. I´ve heard crazier stories in my
life." I smiled out of relief that someone actually believes me. Minccino
then said, "Oh, by the way, I never got your name." "My name is Matthew." I said to
Minccino. "And you are?" "Oh, my apologies. My name is Eve."
the Minccino said. "Eve. I don´t know why, but that name
sounds pretty familiar." I then thought to myself. But I quickly shrugged
the thought off. "Well, it´s nice to meet you, Eve." "Nice to meet you too, Matthew." Eve
then asked me, "So, where are you headed off to?" I then pondered this. "I don´t know. I´ve
been here for five minutes, so I don´t really have a place to go." Eve then thought for a moment. "Well, if
you want, you´re welcome to come with me to my place." "That sounds good." I said with joy.
"Lead the way, Eve." "Okay. Follow me. I know where it is."
So I followed Eve back to her house. As we were both walking, I decided to
strike up a conversation. "So Eve, how long have you been here?" I
then stuttered to correct myself. "I...I mean..." Eve then chuckled a
bit and said, "Don´t worry. I know what you mean." She then proceeded
to say, "I´ve been living here my whole life. Ever since I was a little
egg." I was kind of shocked at this. "Wow. That long, huh?" "Yep. But I managed to live a good life.
Every day I go to the lake to search for berries." "Really? What kinds of berries?" I
said, interested in the conversation. "Well, there´s Oran berries, and then
there´s Cheri berries. I certainly can´t forget Pecha berries." "Wow. Sounds like you have a lot of
diversity when it comes to berries." "Yeah. And many other stuff too. I know
this is probably too much information for a human to take in in one day so I
won´t say too much." Eve then looked at me and decided to ask a question.
"So, Matt." "Yeah?" "Why do you want to see a Jirachi,
anyways?" "You know, now that I think about it,
that thought has occurred to me. I don´t even know why, myself." I said
trying again to remember. Eve noticed that I was thinking, and decided
to leave it as it was. A couple of minutes later, we arrived at Eve´s house.
"Well, what do you think?" I gazed at it with awe. Never in all of my
life have I thought that I would see something as marvelous as this. "Wow.
I´ve never seen anything like it." Eve then motioned for me to follow her
inside. So we went inside the house. Inside, the place was quiet and serine.
"Wow. I´ve got to say, you really outdid yourself in terms of luxury
needs." "You like it?" I then nodded. Eve
then smiled. "I´m glad. You can stay here with me if you want." I was
looking around, amazed at what I was seeing. "Aw man, this is so
cool." I then turned to Eve. "I would like to stay here." "That´s great." she said. Then she
turned and walked down the hallway. "Here. Let me show me my
bedroom." And I followed her to her bedroom. When I walked in, I saw a
drawer on my left with a mirror and a strange box on it, and a bed which looked
like it comforted two Pokemon to my right. The walls were painted with colors
of the rainbow. "Wow. This is really cool, Eve." I said in amazement. "Thanks. You know, I´ve never had company
here before. You´re the first Pokemon to ever visit." Eve said, facing me. "Really?" I said "Yep." Eve then proceeded to hug me.
I blushed at the sight of this, but then I decided, "Hey. Why not enjoy
this while I still can?" So I hugged Eve right back. A few seconds we both
let go. "Sorry. I know we just met, but..." Eve said, a little
embarrassed. "No no. It´s fine. I think I enjoyed it, actually." I
said. "Well, now that that awkward moment is
done, how about I prepare us some lunch? I bet you´re hungry." Eve said,
slowly making her way towards the kitchen. "Sure. I could go for something to
eat." I said as I followed her to the kitchen.
