Wonderlocke - Chapter 35
“That’s our Pokémon fully healed!” exclaimed Bailey as the Nurse Joy of Camphrier Town passed their respective Poké Balls back over the counter to them. This Nurse Joy looked to be about the same age as David and Bailey and acted a little on the annoying side of perky. “Now, if you don’t mind, I think I’m going to video call Professor Oak and let him know how my travels have been going. You can come meet him if you’d like.”
“I think I’ll stay here and sort through my Pokémon,” replied David. “I have some of them I’d like to train who I have yet to meet.”
“Fair enough,” said Bailey with a smile. “I’ll see you back here shortly.”
With her Jigglypuff floating along just behind her heals, the girl took off towards the television screen hung on the wall. David smiled as he plugged his Pokédex into the PC attached to the front counter of the Pok

“Who knew Pokémon attacked in hoards?!” exclaimed Bailey. David had lost count of how many times she’d been asking this question. “I thought fending myself off from the two who paired up to gang up on me in Unova was hard enough, now they are getting together in groups of five to ambush some poor unsuspecting trainer!”
“Oh, for Arceus sakes!” exclaimed Scottie with his hands to the sides of his head. “Enough of this. David, please repeat my explanation to Bailey.”
The boy halted and picked up the Scraggy. “Scottie wants me to repeat what he says to you.”
“Oh,” said Bailey with widened eyes. “Okay.”
The Dark/Fighting Pokémon took a deep breath before he began to speak. He had the attention of David’s other five Pokémon as well as Bailey’s Jigglypuff.
“I used to belong to a hoard,” said the Scraggy with David translating for Bailey. “We are usu

“I think it would probably be best if we camped here for the night,” said David. “I’d keep going, but it’s been a very long day.”
“Oh, that’s fine with me,” agreed Bailey. “It is getting pretty dark and I’d prefer not to travel through the forest during the night.”
“It’s settled,” said David while dropping his bag to the ground and pulling out supplies. “Casper? Do you think you guys could help us by finding some wood and forest debris about for making a fire? That would be greatly appreciated. Timmie, can you find a clean stream and fill this pot with water?”
“Gladly,” replied the Butterfree while the Frogadier accepted the metal pot in silence. “Alright guys, you heard him. We need wood.”
The Pokémon scattered around them. Even Bailey’s Jigglypuff and Swablu hurried to help.
“I know where to find enough berries in these trees for al

“Hold your Rapidash!” yelled Bailey after him, but Max was already out of sight. “This isn’t a race you know! What is that kid’s problem?”
“One too many electric shocks to the head?” suggested Casper with a chuckle.
“Be nice,” said David with a half grin and rolling his eyes. He caught Bailey’s surprised glance and immediately explained. “I was talking to Casper here. He thinks Max has suffered too many electrical shocks.”
The girl glanced between David and his Butterfree while absently twirling one of her long bangs. “Hmm. I think it would be amazing if I could understand what my Pokémon were saying. I can tell when something is bothering them and when they want me to do something for them, but it’s like a game of charades. I don’t always get what they want to tell me. I’m thankful they are patient with me though. It helps.”
The Jugglypuff at her feet beamed up a

There was no more than three seconds of silence heralding Diantha’s departure before it was broken rather abruptly.
“Hey!” exclaimed Max as his hat sailed past David and landed in front of the Pokémon who had cleared a path for the actress’s exit. “What was that for?!”
“Blimey!” growled the boy as both his cheeks now sported the same red mark across them. “What did I ever do to you?!”
Bailey pursed her lips with her hands on her hips and her blue-green eyes glaring.
Max looked to David in an expression of pure gobsmacked bewilderment. The taller boy shrugged and shook his head before raising his hands up to ward off the girl’s glare when it had briefly turned to him.
“I don’t know,” stated Bailey. Her calm tone oozing sarcasm as the glare was brought back to Max. “It might be that you managed to both physically assault and verbally insult one of the most important peo

The boy had not taken more than three steps into the streets of Lumiose City when his name was already being called. He and his Pokémon turned towards the sounds of his name to see a girl with long brown hair flowing behind her as she ran down the busy street towards him. The large red bow keeping her brown hair back flounced with her every hurried step.
Behind her trailed a round pink Pokémon which bounced around the legs of the people minding their own business as graceful as a ballerina floating through a forest. A little blue Pokémon which seemed to resemble a bird with fluffy cloud-like wings hovered over the girl’s head.
“Oh boy,” muttered Casper. The eye-roll could be heard in his voice even when the boy couldn’t see the butterfly’s face. “It’s her. Good thing ol’ Flint is in the box or you’d be taking him to the nearest Pokémon Center due to a heart attack.”
Wonderlocke - Chapter 27
Casper landed on David’s head while leaning forwards to the point of almost falling off so he could see the PC box.
“Who are you planning to bring out?” asked the Butterfree while clinging to his orange hair. “I, for one, will not be missing that flirtatious nightmare of a bird.”
David couldn’t help snorting slightly. “I don’t think I’ll be missing him much either. I can wait until I have a badge to prove to him that I am worthy of his level before I take him out again. That way, I can tell him to stay out of my hair. Literally.”
“Who is on the yellow team besides Flint?” asked Wenona while buzzing close to them.
“Scottie, the Scraggy,” answered the boy. “And a Meinfoo I named Melina. I think I’ll train Scottie seeing as he’s the lowest level of the team.”
David tapped the screen and a Poké Ball appeared in the ball slot for him to remove. He plucked it out of the
Damien's Key Chapter 2, part 1
In the distance of a town of eternal Midnight and a similar town of eternal sunset, people bask an awe at the beam of light that falls like a shooting star into the distance. Intrigued, everyone in each of those two towns had headed to the highest points of their home. What they saw was a surprise-
-they all saw it, a huge stone-craved 4 way bridge that shone like the stars in the skies above and 3 towns in the far distance. Each with their own type of light.
The worlds as they knew it.. have been connected.
"Hey! Hey wake up!"
"I think he's coming around."
"You sure we should be doing this? He looks... freaky"
"You're one to talk.."
Damien grumbled and slowly opened his eyes-
-to see a 4 human faces looking down on him.
Damien screamed. Which made the group of humans scream. They all were screaming for a moment with surprise and startled looks on their faces. Damien scrambled up from the stone floor and-

“Not to brag or anything, but I know Lumiose City like the back of my hand,” announced Alexa in upbeat bravado. She made a gesture to a spire made of some kind of green stone. “Here’s the Vert Plaza and straight ahead, through the alleyway, will take us to the Centrico Plaza. The gym is in the tower in the dead center of our grandest city! You can see a bit of it between the roofs.”
“This place is huge!” muttered David in awe. For a city stacked with houses and shops everywhere, it still held a quaint charm to it. It was obviously a bustling and busy place, but the architecture spoke of a beauty of simpler times. A beauty which was made to last many lifetimes.
“Imagine all the pranks I could pull in a place like this!” exclaimed Brylie with eyes narrowed in glee.
“I’d rather not,” grumbled Flint with a glare down at the bunny.
“I feel so very small again,” muttered Casper as he fluttered clos

“Well,” said Alexa while pulling away from him. “Now that that’s settled, let’s keep heading to Lumiose City.”
David nodded with a grin. “Thanks. You didn’t really need to come with me, but thanks anyways.”
“Nonsense!” exclaimed Alexa while picking up her Helioptile and settling him back around her neck. “I’m already heading back to my office in Lumiose City to publish that battle of yours, why not travel with you and learn some more along the road? It was my idea for you to head to Lumiose to take on Clemont after all! I’m intrigued to see how you fair against his Electric-types!”
David raised an eyebrow at her as they continued down the path.
“What?” she asked. “Can’t I hit two Pidgey with the same stone? I saw an opportunity and I seized it. Besides, I wouldn’t have confirmed my suspicions over your ability and your connections you already share with you
