Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Unnatural Occurrences
The Journey Begins
It was a normal Sunday night; I sat in my room playing my Nintendo 3DS while watching my daily dose of Brain Scratch Comm videos. I had recently gotten back into playing the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series and I had bought another copy of Explorers of Sky because after countless hours of searching, I couldn't find my original copy. The time was 10:06 and my curfew was a strict 10:00 but I had lost track of time and my mother came in to remind me to go to bed. Okay it was more like forced me to go to bed by shutting my computer and threatening to take my 3DS away if I didn't go to bed right away. So I just laid there, with the lights out, thinking.
Well once again I managed to do none of my homework that is due tomorrow. I could set my alarm to wake me up early so I can finish it in the morning. But I know now that I will be woken up by it at 5:40 and I will think "Screw it, I can do it on the bus!" and I'll sleep till 6:30 and get breakfast, get dressed, grab my school supplies and head out for the bus stop. Then once the bus arrives I will still be sleepy and wind up sleeping on my back pack and wake up at school with only about ten minuets of time to do homework that would normally take me a good hour and a half, and my only class after lunch where I can work on it happens to be the only class I don't have homework in. Alright well at least I know I screwed myself over, but I can't believe I can be so lazy. If only I could just live in the world where PMD takes place, I would be an innocent Pokémon without a trouble in the world. I could just lay back and do whatever the hell I feel like. But there are the friends and family I would be leaving behind, though what if they were to come with me. I can imagine Tanner and I just chilling and doing fun stuff in the Pokémon universe, what with he being one of my few friends that still plays Pokémon games. Oh ya, I completely forgot to shut of the 3DS. Mom had me so rushed I just shut it but I never actually turned it off.
So I opened the Nintendo 3DS and finished the mission I was doing. I was going to fight a Grandbull and get a sleep seed back for a Trapinch. I took him out with one hit using Force Palm as my character Nick, a Riolu. I had played the game as a male Riolu with my partner being a female Eevee named Eve (creative name I know). I had finished the mission with ease and it went to the seen at Sharpedo Bluff that happens after you go into a dungeon where you partner says you did a good days work and should get some rest. The only problem here was that the game, it almost felt like it was saying it to me. I began to feel drowsy and I passed out without turning off the game, and that was when things really got freaky.
I felt a small shock and I woke up in a dream, or at least I thought it was a dream. I was spiraling through a tunnel that had binary code written on the walls and I felt strange. My skin felt like it was shriveling and tightening and I started to get shorter. The walls of the tube were slightly transparent and I could see a person in the tube next to me start to transform as well. The transformation became unbearably painful and I blacked out.
Ugh, I feel dizzy. Am I in a mini coma again? The last time I was in one of these was about a year ago and I thought they had finally stopped happening. Apparently I guessed wrong, oh well all I can do now is sit and try to move. Okay now let's start with moving my left leg.
I focused all of my energy into my left leg and as normal I felt blood rushing through it rapidly and it started to burn. Throughout my life I have occasionally woken up in a sort of mini coma where I can't move or open my eyes, yet I can hear and feel. They normally happened when I suffered from a lack of oxygen because of my body being influenced by dreams where I either die or stop breathing. This never really damaged my body in anyway but waking up and not being able to move or see is terrifying.
No good. Let's see, normally my left arm comes back first and then the rest follows. Come on you son of a bitch, MOVE!
I put all of my energy into that one arm and finally it began to move, but it was very slow and I had very little control over it.
Alright now the rest of my body should be freer moving. Wait, now that I pay attention to the sounds in the background, I can hear the splash of ocean waves. Last I remember, I was sitting in my bed shutting off my 3DS, but I passed out.
"Hey maybe we should splash some water on him or her or whatever to see if it'll wake up," I heard a random voice say. Well it actually didn't sound too random, I could recognize it somewhat but not too the point where I could match it with a face. All I knew was that someone who I knew was standing above me.
"Well the wave over there seems like it just might do that for us," Another voice said. This voice I didn't recognize at all. The first sounded like it came from a male, probably in his early teens. The second voice sounded more feminine, again the voice sounded like it was in its early teens. But this voice was unknown to me, I wanted to say I could recognize it but I couldn't.
Wait did that person just say wave? I am about to drown now aren't I? Well I lived a long life with a lot to show for it. Who the hell am I trying to fool; I lived a mere 14 years and all I have to show for it is a lot of ass kissing and work failing.
I then felt the cold chill of the water hit me and begin to drag me out to see. The ridged shock of being hit by the water was enough to get me moving. Being pulled out to see was what really got my muscles to move.
I can move again! Now I should probably call out for help on the fact I am about to drown. "HELP ME!" I shouted in hopes of rescue. I blacked out again in the ocean but soon came to on the beach.
"Hey, looks like it's finally decided to wake up!" The female voice shouted.
"So it has, has it," The male voice replied.
I tried moving again, it hurt a bit, but that was only because I had just been thrashed around in the ocean. I opened my eyes, coughed up some water, and looked at the people who were looking after me. Boy what I saw when I opened my eyes was one hell of a shock.
"Hi I'm Eve!" The female voice said. What I saw standing in front of me was a living, breathing Eevee. It just sat there smiling and treating me like I was one of its own kind.
"Oh dear god it's an Eevee!" I said in shock. "I must be dreaming, NO ONE PINCH ME!"
"Of course I'm an Eevee; we are somewhat common around here. If anything I should be shocked seeing you, we don't get to many Riolu's here. Where are you from?" The kind Eevee asked.
"What do you mean your shocked seeing a Riolu, I'm not a Riolu?" I answered, wondering why the Eevee had said that.
"Umm, dude, look at your hand," The other voice had said. This person was an Umbreon so I presumed it to be a sibling to the Eevee named Eve.
"Why do you want me to look at…" I said as I glanced down at my hand. "OH DEAR GOD WHY IS MY HAND A PAW COATED IN BLUE FUR!?!"
"Hey you were right Eve, seeing how I reacted is hilarious," The Umbreon said.
"So you aren't really a Riolu I'm guessing? You were at one point a human?" Eve questioned.
"I'm a Riolu, well if I wake up as a Pokémon, I sure am happy I'm a Riolu. Wait, you, Umbreon, your voice sounds familiar. What's two plus two?" I asked
"FISH!" The Umbreon answered.
"TANNER, IS THAT YOU!?!" I replied.
"Who are you? How do you know who I am?" Tanner asked.
"It's me Nick!" I answered excitedly.
"NICK, YOU'RE HERE TO!" He said happy to see me.
"You bet your Dark type ass I am. But how the hell did we get here in the first place?"
"Honestly I have no clue. I went to sleep, had a strange dream, then I was woken up by little Eve over there," Tanner explained.
"Hi," The Eevee said while grinning from ear to ear.
"Hi Eve, I'm Nick, it's great to meet you formally," I said as I let off a grin.
"Hi Nick, it's great to meet you to. So you and Tanner both say you are humans but somehow manage to transform into Pokémon. Also from what Tanner sais, he is from a world where Pokémon don't actually exist but have been rumored to, and since you and him are from the same world I can guess you are shocked to see me because you have never actually meet an Eevee before. Am I close to the situation here?" Eve asked.
"You're one smart Eevee. Ya I reacted the way I did because I never thought I would ever actually come in contact with a real live Eevee in my lifetime," I replied.
"Hey do you here yelling?" Tanner questioned.
"Ya I do, it sounds like it's coming from the crossroads, let's go check it out," Eve answered.
So we went running over to the cross roads where we saw a Quilava running in circles screaming her head off (the voice sounded very feminine so I assumed it was a her) and a Pikachu standing in the center of the circle that the Quilava was running in. It then walked over to the edge of the circle and waited for the Quilava to come over to where it was standing and stuck out its foot. The Quilava tripped over it and when flying into a sign.
"I know you're suddenly a Pokémon Tae, but it doesn't mean you need to run in circles screaming about it," The Pikachu said looking irritated.
"BUT IT'S SO COOL!" The Quilava said as it stood back up. "I mean look at this!" She then made a strange face that looked like she was either focusing, or constipated. After a few seconds of looking strange, the Quilava burst small flames out of its back and resumed running in circles until the flames were out.
"Excuse me!" I shouted. "But by any chance are you humans?"
The Pikachu walked up to me. "Why yes we are, well not now. Right now we are, well, Pokémon as you can see. I'm Chloe and the spastic one over there is Taelyr. How did you know we were once humans?" Chloe asked.
"Well for starters, the reaction of your friend over there and… Wait are you Canadians?" I asked.
"Ya why does that matter?"
"Well by any chance do you two have DeviantART Accounts?"
"Ya, and again why does it matter?"
"Does the name "Foamywaffles" or "Lucariolus" ring a bell,"
"Yes, wait are you…"
"Well I'll be damned, looks like I finally get to meat Quill and Serenade," I grinned.
"Hey Tae, guess who turned into a Pokémon to!" Chloe shouted over to the Quilava.
"What are you talking about?" The Quilava said as it walked over to us.
"Hello Taelyr, nice to finally meet you," I said as I held out my hand (or should I say paw) for a handshake.
"How do you know my name," She asked curiously.
"Must we go through this again; IT'S ME NICK FROM DA!" I explained.
"Wait, Foamy, or should I say Nick, is it really you?" She asked again
"Yes it is, are you really you?" I said sarcastically.
"Well hi then, so you turned into a Pokémon to eh, small world,"
"Ya don't say. Well Taelyr, Chloe, meet Tanner and Eve. Tanner is my friend from the human world and Eve I meet about five minuets ago,"
"Hi there," Tanner said.
"How are ya," Eve greeted.
"Fine, thank you," Taelyr replied.
"So Chloe, you know just as well as I what we need to do now right?" I asked
"Time to go register in Wigglytuff's guild," She replied
"Yep, but it seems that this game will have five main characters instead of two," I said as we all began to walk up the steps to the guild.
This was only the beginning of my adventure. We thought we should only need to go along with the game but we had no clue how the events would actually play out.
