Default Kind of an idea, need some help with it.

I had this beginning for a plot - It's set out in the more open area of Hoenn, starting near a lone house in a large flatland. A Ralts somehow causes a Ponyta to go on a bit of a rampage, causing the house to burn down, killing all but one member of the family living inside of it. Feeling guilty, the Ralts sticks himself to the boy left behind, and.. well, I suppose the boy goes off to try and find another home.

The problem is, I don't have a plot besides that. And I know that if I just go with that the story will be horribly boring. Could someone maybe help me?

Well, make sure that he doesn't become a Pokemon trainer on the course of his travels and vow to beat the Elite Four and become a Pokemon Master...! Yeah, we don't need more of those. <.<

Heh, no, I'm trying to stray away from the path of 'getting a pokemon, going off to become pokemanzmasta'

I like that idea, though. The whole he's too young thing.

Or maybe the Ralts gets brainwashed later on and attempts to kill the boy, you could try that..

Actually, there is nothing wrong with a trainer story if written well :) But the 'Ponyta goes wild from a random pokemon doing something and kills a whole family by burning down a house' idea is a little hard to swallow :P. In a way the 'boy without parents who becomes bitter at the world' plot idea is just as overdone as the 'so and so gets brainwashed and turns evil' idea in fantasy stories.
You would actually be doing something different if you did'nt kill his parents IMHO and more than anything did not have the pokemon be able to talk to the boy ;)

Maybe, unknown to the boy, one other member of his family lived and accepted a job as one of the elite four so the only way to re-join them is by going on the whole trainer quest thing. If you were leaning more toward the idea of a trainer story, this might be a good way to make it more interesting.

In the right style I think that story idea could be very intresting if you did not make it too overdramaic :). Of course, the details would have to be well thought out...

Maybe unknownst to the boy and the Ralts, something else cause the Ponyta to go wild. Maybe it was brainwashed or maybe it was trying to escape some evil force that begins to follow the boy and the Ralts.

Eh, just an idea.

Maybe it was Mew who did it... Then he took over a Ralts' body! He stuck with the boy, planning to use the boy's body next.

Like it?
