Nam's Start as a Pokemon Trainer

Tue Aug 07, 2018 11:50 pm

It was in a dimly lit part of town, where few people travelled that a small sewer grate could be heard sliding open from one of the many entrances and exits to the under city. As the grate slid open a very young female looking human would slide out. A moment later they could be seen running into the shadows of an alley way that was closed off for renovation. Like a silent animal running from prey Nam would leap into a small opening in a wall just in time for two rugged dressed men to run by with illegal weapons.

From where Nam was, the voices of the two men could be heard. They spoke about finding the kid or else the Orphanage Master would end their lives. After they said that, they would split up, each going in two separate directions.

After some time had passed, Nam would crawl out from the crawl space and begin running towards an open street. Nam Jak would be wearing a tattered oversized mens shirt, and would have nothing but parts of shoes on that looked stitched together by someone who did not know what they were doing. As Nam came to the street, Nam would run down it and slip into one of the more taller, majestic looking structures. One with a very large red and white glowing hologram of a Pokeball on it.

Nam Jak knew pokemon like most did, but Nam knew them in a far darker light. From where Nam was from, Pokemon were used in illegal death matches where the poor creatures would fight to the death for large sums of money or what ever else people had. Nam's job was usually cleaning up the mess and dealing with injured or dead Pokemon.

Nam hated it, Nam didn't like being there, Nam just wanted to get away from it, Nam wanted to leave this place, and that;s why Nan with the help of an outsider escaped to this Pokemon Centre. Name was going to start a new journey, one far away from Yonohara, a journey with Pokemon.

Nam slowly walked up to the desk and waited for anyone to come answer.

"I'd like to become a Pokemon Trainer please" Nam would say occasionally looking backwards to see if those two thugs might be there.

When she arrived, it seemed like the Centre was quiet albeit a soft beeping in the back. Dim fluorescent lights overhead lit the area, allowing her to see past the long counter to the rooms ahead and it appeared that the area was as deserted as the lobby. This centre has seen better days but it wasn’t any surprise. The neighborhood that this one sat in was sketchy to say the least and not many people visited at all, but looking at the blinking machinery it still seemed to work fine.

The double doors behind Namjak slid open abruptly then, perhaps scaring the wits out of the girl considering her pursuers, but it was only a nurse Joy, a clear plastic bag with goods in one hand and a purse in another. If Namjak could read, letters across the bag read “Goyoeki Convenience Store”. The nurse herself looked younger than most and, like many nurses, had a Blissey in tow.

“Oh my, I’m sorry. The sign fell off didn’t it?”

She said apologetically and entered, the doors snapping shut behind her. A sign that was dangling from the glass window, the tape loosened from the top. The nurse came in and tore it off, the words “sorry! On break and will be back in a few!” scrawled on top. She hurried then to the side of the desk where she entered and set down her things while speaking to Namjak, whom she did not notice was in quite the hurry.

“Are you lost little girl? Where are your parents? This is the right place to lose them by yourself trust me. Perhaps a phone number?”

Nam, upon entering the Pokecentre was a tad disappointing at the sights. Looking over the area two more times, Nam concluded that no one liked Pokemon here either.

"I must travel from Yonohara, get far away" Nam would say focusing on the thought of adventuring outside of the mega city.

Nam's entire chain of thought was immediately shattered by the sound of the door sliding open. Within an instant, every hair on Nam's body would stand on end.

"I... I'm sorry for the trouble. My parents, I don;t have any. I'm uhh..." Nam would say hoping to avoid this conversation.

"I'm looking to become a Pokemon trainer and explore the world" Nam would say to the Nurse.

Nurse Joy tilted her head thinking and giving a hard “hmmmmm...”...then smiled at Namjak happily.

“Okay that’s fine. Even minors are able to get Pokémon on their own, so that won’t be a problem. Give me one second and I’ll get you the starters.”

With a light step, she went towards the back and returned with a box that had a screen, a small ledge on it along with a small slot at the bottom. The ledge had what looked to be two red buttons and a red joystick akin to an arcade cabinet’s controls...perhaps simplified. The screen was large and took up most of the box, but pitch black and motionless. Nurse Joy set the box down in front of Namjak in a huff, then turned on a switch on the top of it. The screen lit up like an old tv, starting from the middle and expanding outwards to fill the screens space, and simply showed the words “Pick that Pokemon!!” in large dynamic letters. A cheerful jingle came from the side speakers and Nurse Joy gave a giggle.

“Well go on! Use the joystick to scroll through the ones available and buttons to choose. The A button is to select and B is to cancel.”

Nam's eye lit up, perhaps the brightest they ever had in all the years Nam had been alive. With rays of excitement pouring from Nam's eyes, both hands would grab the box and begin manipulating the controls.

Soon, Nan would be off adventuring with a new Pokemon, but which one the machine gave out was a real mystery.
