She becomes friends with a Rotom that they meet in the Viridian Forest(he haunts the forest), and the two of them are separated from their Trainer when Team Rocket ambushes them on the way from Pewter and Cerulean. If you've ever read The Call of the Wild, the story's a bit like that. Fuega is juggled from Trainer to Trainer, and becomes quite angst-ridden along the way. I can't tell you any more, or I'd give away the entire story.
*There is an ideas and premises thread sticked, but oh well*
It sounds good, but how about you make Charmander do wrong? Like say his trainer is perfectly fine, or not as bad as he thinks, and he runs away, with his own pokéball, or something like that. Because, know one is ever purely good, or purely evil, or even close on either side.
Team Rocket? Why Team Rocket? Why not just a non-descript guy short on luck and down a few bucks at the local bar? Seriously, why would Team Rocket ambush a Charmander when it has entire fleets of research and pokemon manipulation vessels. Not to mention they could get any pokémon they wanted through breeding their own pokémon and oh, no illegal activities in that.
So try to have a motive for everyone. That's what you'd need to make this work, I think.
