Chapter 4: The Cherrygrove Rivalry Begins!
Kevin was eating breakfast down in the Lobby of the Pokemon Center. After getting in the Pokemon Center of Cherrygrove City last night, Kevin and his Trapinch had a great peaceful, cool sleep.
Kevin had changed into the same outfit he was wearing only it was red. He was still wearing his all-white AirForceOnes while his hat was made of white jeans material.
Evidentially, Kevin’s outfits consisted of the exact same outfits, except they were different in color, style, fitting, and design layouts.
The Pokemon Center was one of the best places to eat breakfast in. The floor tiles were nicely polished that sparkled a silver marble in color. These tiles that were on the floor were also on the ceiling, only a dazzling hot flame red color that glittered throughout the entire place.
The walls were beautifully, specifically painted white and red, with such elegant wall paintings of pokeballs. There were many photos that were hanging from the walls throughout the Pokemon Center, like for example, a Johto League photo.
There were a Venusaur, Blastoise and Charizard battling against each other. These three pokemon were in some golden arena, with a crimson burner emitting such a hot, flammable white and red fire that appeared to burn massively.
The caption was:
<Come one trainer, come all trainers! Come and battle here with your impressive skills, strategic defense, quick attacks and ending special attacks! Enter the Johto League’s new division: The Golden Conference!>
So, many trainers and other people viewed this large photo and began to get excited that the Johto League had made a new division called the Golden Conference that would lead strong-enough trainers to the Victory Tournament, Challenge Cup and X-Terminator Finals.
There were other photos, though they weren’t as interesting as the one that attracted many trainers and other viewers.
The Pokemon Center was also great when it came to healing hurt pokemon, fainted pokemon or pokemon with side-effects like a burn, or pokemon that have been poisoned by an attack like Poison Tail or Poison Fang.
The front desk was very professional, having a black stone countertop and the bottom of the counter consisting of brown, polished wood. There were regular fanlights that were twirling on the roof, releasing cool air around the entire Pokemon Center.
On the counters, there were about two HP-Pavilion Computers that had flat-screen monitors. These two computers were basically for typing in the pokemon’s data, problems and possible, correct solutions that take the fewest amounts of days to make the pokemon heal.
At the front desk standing there was Nurse Joy, standing there with her long, pink ponytails that were nicely wrapped up with hot pink colored scrunches. Wearing her nurse outfit and with her determinative attitude for help healing pokemon, Nurse Joy was one of the best pokemon nurses to have in a Pokemon Center, even though that all Pokemon Centers had a Nurse Joy.
Also, Nurse Joy’s assistants of the Pokemon Center happened to be pokemon known as Chansey and Blissey. This really showed how people and pokemon could work together for the good of all.
Kevin began to clean up his plate that once consisted of his breakfast. Kevin ate scrambled eggs, 2 slices of toast and small pancakes that were neatly cut into smaller unit segments.
The booth was made of red leather, having a rectangular tabletop to the booth. He neatly left his plate on the booth table and being considerate and thoughtful, left a $4.92 tip for the Pokemon Center Donation Organization to help get the Pokemon Center new machines that can heal pokemon with severe problems like early dehydration.
“Trapinch Trapinch.” Trapinch yelped out nicely, having an early-morning voice tone.
Kevin looked down at his pokemon, seeing that he needed to heal it before it could engage into another battle. So, he took Trapinch to the front desk of the Pokemon Center. Nurse Joy arose from her computer chair and smiled with her sweet face.
“Welcome to the Pokemon Center’s front desk! How may I help you?” Nurse Joy asked.
“Um, I was wondering if you could heal my Trapinch for me.” Kevin replied nicely.
“Sure, we’d love to do so!” Nurse Joy responded, taking Trapinch away from Kevin’s possession.
She placed in on a tray and put it on some machine. Kevin watched as white electricity shocked Trapinch and began flowing it healing power to give it its full strength back. Finally, the healing was done, and Trapinch was fully healed!
Nurse Joy picked up the tray, with Trapinch sitting on it, and placed it back on the front desk black stone counter.
“Trap Trap Trapinch!” Trapinch said happily, letting Kevin know that it was 100% better.
Kevin picked up Trapinch and began holding it to his strong chest. Nurse Joy smiled and began speaking in her sweet, young voice.
“Your Trapinch is fully healed! Thank you for your patience and please come again!” Nurse Joy announced.
“Thanks and I will, Nurse Joy! Bye!” Kevin replied, waving back at Nurse Joy.
Trapinch happily looked around, seeing the beauties of its world. Seeing Chansey and Blissey walking around made it comfortable with its surroundings now. Kevin and his Trapinch went through the automatic-open glass doors, exiting the Pokemon Center…
Kevin loved his view when he left out of the Pokemon Center. The day was actually a warm one, meaning that Kevin was enjoying this day already! Kevin loved warm days because it would feel a lot better rather than walking in the hot, blazing temperatures during the summertime.
The sun was out, beaming brightly among the entire city. A flock of Ledyba began buzzing around, flying over Cherrygrove City. There were mobile homes, having a green roof, rectangular shape and a green door to match. Even though these were mobile homes, they were pretty expensive and looked their prices as well.
Kevin also noticed the majestic view of the river with leaping Magikarp coming from under the water. As the river flowed nicely, a fisherman was sleep, having his fishing line in the river.
The river sparkled dark blue, having one of the most interesting views ever. And finally, there were many Royal Highness roses, blooming wonderfully around the mobile homes, near Route 30 and around the Pokemon Center.
Thanks for the small rain showers that came in throughout the night, that helped brought the almost-to-die roses to new life of blooming wonderfully with style and prettiness. Kevin seemed like he would enjoy this day, but as soon as he took a few steps away from the Pokemon Center, he heard a voice that seemed more familiar than ever.
“So it’s the chomp again, the one who apparently took a Trapinch, the weak ground pokemon…” a voice said.
Kevin lowered his head, closed his eyes and began to smirk. Meanwhile, Trapinch heard this insult and began to get angry, growling angrily at the shady character.
“Oh hush up, you small little rat thing!” the voice said meanly, upsetting Trapinch even more!
“Trappppp Trapppp!” Trapinch roared out, seeing that this character had went too far!
Trapinch was on the verge of leaping out of Kevin’s arms, ready to use a Bite attack on this person when Kevin released a few laughs.
“Trapinch,” Kevin began. “Don’t let Jason’s words get to you…his words are meaningless and just nothing to be worried about.”
Trapinch gazed up, hearing its trainer’s thoughts, and it appeared to calm down easily rather than taking action and risking itself to danger. Then, Kevin opened his eyes and looked up, seeing that he was right.
Kevin was staring into the eyes of a person that he always had a debate with; a person that shared some similarities with Kevin, only different in many actions and strategies.
Wearing a red ‘Fubu’ shirt with his baggy blue jeans, and with his backwards all-blue cap with matching red-on-blue low-top AirForceOnes, this person was known other than Jason Trias, a person with attitude and talking back abilities.
Jason Trias wasn’t a person to mess with; only people with enough bravery dared to give Jason a challenge. Luckily, Kevin wasn’t scared of Jason at all. In fact, he was never scared because he knew what Jason’s weakness was…this weakness was called fear.
Though Jason was tough on the outside, beating up little kids and attempting to go after young adults, on the inside, Kevin knew that Jason was a scared little boy, trying to fit in when there’s nothing to fit in with.
Jason was the kind of person to talk back whenever in an argument conversation with an adult. He was a troubled child though his parents knew that one day, he would stop.
Luckily, Jason had pulled his act together, though not losing the same attitude with kids under the age of eighteen. This meant that even though he wouldn’t talk back to adults, he would talk back to kids under the age of eighteen to pick an easy-defeating fight.
So Kevin saw that this shady character was his upsetting associate, known as Jason Trias. Jason grinned as he made his announcement.
“Well, looks like Kevin actually became a trainer! Looks like dreams do come true for losers like him!” Jason announced, trying to embarrass Kevin.
Trapinch was getting angrier and angrier, trying its best to hold back all of its power on Jason.
Kevin smirked and replied, “Kevin, your words don’t hurt me at all! But, at least I became a trainer and have an occupation as an official pokemon trainer!”
