Here's the second chapter in my latest story. Hope y'all like it.
Disclaimer:I don't own Pokemon, although I really wish I did. Matter of fact, I'm plotting right now...
Chapter 2: The Sixteen
"So you wanna do what?" Gary nearly yelled.
"Not so loud! You're gonna break my damn eardrums," Jack said while plugging his ears.
They had been sitting in Jack's living room, Gary getting here just twenty minutes previously, talking about the idea Jack proposed over the phone. In Gary's eyes, it was the most insane thing he'd ever heard. In Jack's eyes, it was a great idea, serving two purposes: showing the Pokemon League that they were indeed qualified, and learning more along the way. It was perfect.
"How the hell do you come up with this stuff?" Gary wondered aloud, still having a bewildered expression on his face. "That's fucking crazy!"
Jack sniffed. "I think it's a great idea. As I stated before-."
"No, no, I get that. What I mean is that you come with these seemingly insane ideas out of nowhere sometimes, and they actually seem to work. How do you do that? Whatever vegetables you're eating, I wan't some of 'em."
Jack laughed, mentally sighing a breath of relief. "Having a genius I.Q helps. So, you'll go along with it?"
"Yeah, sure." Gary paused. "But the problem is if the others will agree to this. Did your genius brain think of that?" His tone was mocking.
Jack smiled slightly. "Of course I have. I believe they'll take the offer. They all want to take on the Gold Four, and they all want to travel. Plus, they get to catch legendary Pokemon. How much convincing do they need?"
"Alright." Gary stood up, holding his hand out. "I'm in. Let's start getting the others in as well."
For the next hour and a half, they were calling up their friends, telling them about the offer, and convincing them to take it. Some went by quicker than others due to eagerness in accepting the terms and getting back at the Pokemon League, while others were a tad reluctant, althought they came over in the end. They were scheduled to be there within the week, seeing as some were coming all the way from Kanto and Johto to Sinnoh.
While they were waiting, they decided to go to the Battle Frontier. It was just a short surf from the Resort Area, so they hopped on their Pokemon and rode over to the Fight Area, enjoying the ocean breeze.
When they arrived at the Fight Area, Gary finally spoke. "It's gonna take a long time, ya know," he said. "Legendaries aren't pushovers. They're called legends for a reason."
Jack looked towards him. "Worried?"
"No, just being practical. We're gonna have to split into groups, five in fact, each covering one region. Any suggestions, 'cause-,"
"Because your small ass brain ain't got none, I got it." Jack finished, smiling.
"Shut the fuck up, you blue waffle," he growled out.
Jack laughed. They were approaching the Battle Frontier now. "A'ight. I got it. Five groups right?" Gary nodded. "Alright, well, we're gonna have to go with groups of three for Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, and Unova, and we should get four for Sinnoh, seeing as it has 11 legendaries. Not including Arceus, of course." Jack paused to flash his trainer I.D at the receptionist at the desk. Gary mimicked his motion. "So I'll put Silver, Ethan, Verde, and Misty in that group- they'll get along well."
"Let's put Hareta, Flannery, and... Jun in the Kanto group. Flannery said she's always wanted to see Kanto. She's leaving her Gym to her dad for this, so we should at least give her what she wants," Gary said, glad he didn't say that in front of her. He would never hear the end of that chick.
"Agreed. Next, let's put Seth, N, and Bianca in the Hoenn group. Maybe they'll bring her out of her shell." Jack smiled deviously.
Gary's eyebrow twitched as Jack bought 10 scratchoffs. "Are you fucking crazy? They'll bring her out of her shell, alright. Then she'll be swearing like a sailor by the end of the first week! Admit it: your brother and N are bad influences for a girl like her."
"Seth and N aren't that bad," Jack said.
Gary raised his eyebrow.
"Fine," Jack sighed, waving a white flag. "I concede defeat. But they're still gonna be in the same group."
"Good. So you don't mind if I put you with Zoe and Wally and ship you off to Johto, right?"
"You...little...bastard," he growled.
"What? I thought you liked Wally, and I know you have a crush on Zoe, so don't start complainin', mister."
Gary grumbled. "Whatever."
"And that leaves me, Tabitha, and Blake to go to Unova. That's good, we got that down pat. Now we just have to tell 'em. Now come on, stop moping and enjoy yourself. We came here for a reason." Jack's eyes suddenly lit up.
"What?" Gary asked, interested.
"I won 200,578 Poke!"
The week passed fairly quickly, with people arriving every day. Soon enough, all 16 people were in Jack's living room, sitting on whatever space was available.
"So, whatcha got for us, my nigga?" N said, smirking slightly.
Jack smiled. "I thought I told y'all, man. But I'm gonna reiterate it, bluntly, anyway." Jack paused. "We're going to catch the legendary Pokemon... and then take on the Gold Four."
So? Good so far? N, Seth, Jun (the blond one from Diamond & Pearl), and Jack are rascist and offensive sometimes, but please don't take offense to anything they say. Just wanted to clear that up. Also, I might not update for a while because I'm workin' on my Avatar: Last Airbender story. It's called The Shadowbender, so go check it out- it's pretty good (for now). Finally, a couple of charater explanations.
Hareta- the male playable character in Diamond & Pearl.
Verde- the name I gave to the FireRed & LeafGreen female playable character, seeing as I didn't like her original name, Green.
Review plz. It's like a rainbow in... aw, fuck it. Just review.
