I found myself back in the empty space. The floor was still about an inch underwater, just enough to cover my feet. Zack the Samurott was standing in front of me again.
<Zack!> I exitedly shouted at him.
<So we can finally talk again.> he said with his deep voice.
<Why couldn't we talk erlier? I have so many questions to ask you.>
< I'm sorry but contacting you drains a lot of my energy, and it seems that my energy only recovers very slowly.>
<Oh sorry, I didn't know.>
< I already told you told you that you shouldn't worry about me.>
< I know...but are you really happy with your...condition?>
<Would you feel any better if I told you something else? Listen, I can't change anything about it so, I'm just happy to be united with the one I love the most.>
<OK, I get it...>
<Fine, so now let's not talk about that, when we could talk about other things.>
<You're right, I'm sorry, but that question's been on me since I woke up from the last time we talked.>
< I guess that's just you.>
<What do you mean?>
<You've always been like that. You always thought about others first. But it's something I really liked about you, and I'm actually glad that this hasn't changed.>
< I only lost most of my memories. It's really a shame that they're gone, but this also kinda helped me getting over the whole being a Pokémon thing. I mean without them, I didn't even have a reason to go back to my old life, so I gave this new life a chance and I really grew into it, being a Pokémon is really great, and I also enjoy those battles. I just think I pushed myself too hard in the last battle, though.>
<Oh you did great, don't worry. I already told you that you're even stronger than I was when I was still a Dewott. And not every Dewott can stand up against a Scyther.>
<Everyone keeps saying, that I'm really strong, could that be because I'm actually a human?>
< I don't know about that. I only know that you're a really skilled fighter, and also you've seen the battlefield from both the perspective of a trainer and a Pokémon.>
<That only helps me judging the situation but that doesn't explain why I'm so strong, not that I would complain about it, but it makes me wonder why.>
<And that's where you can definitely see that you're not a Pokémon.>
<What do you mean with that?>
<You may look and fight like a Pokémon but you still think like a human. You always want answers to your questions.>
<What's wrong about that?>
<Well, you accepted your new life as a Pokémon but you still refuse to think like one.>
<How would a Pokémon think about this?>
<Pokémon usually don't think too much about such things. We just kinda accept what's happening around us and don't think of why that just happened. It's not like we could change something about it.>
<Now that you mention it, Travis kinda thinks the same way. Maybe I should try this, too. Oh man it's gonna be hard to not think about things...>
<You can do that. You never think about things when you're in a battle do you?>
<When I battle I'm completely focused on my opponents, and all I think of is how I can beat them. It kinda feels like my mind is completely free.>
<See, that's what I mean. You humans tend to think of all that stuff that's not even important to you. You should just focus on what's happening right now, and enjoy your life.>
< I guess you're right.>
< I think our time's over.>
<Already? But I wanted to know more.>
<This won't be the last time we're talking, don't worry>
The room of emptiness around me dissapeared....
Chapter 1 - The Hatching'Where am I?' Everything was dark around me, when I opened my eyes. I was in a really narrow place. I could hardly move. 'What happened to me? Did I get caught? I can't remember...wait I can't remember anything! Who am I? Oh wait, I do at least remember my name. It's Martin, but that doesn't help me that much. Who am I? I think I'm a Pokémontrainer, I'm 16 Years old...and I'm from Unova...but last I remember I wasn't in Unova....I was in Johto...but what did I do there? I can't remember...What is this place here? It's so narrow, but those walls don't seem to be made of stone or steel. Well, at least it's warm in here. How long have I even been in here? Have I been sleeping all the time? Alright I need to stay calm. Those walls don't seem to be too stable. Maybe I can somehow break them down.' I tried pushing against the walls. To my surprise, the walls actually got a small crack. I heard a voice from outside. I couldn't understand what it said, but it sounded like a young girls vo
Chapter 17: A fierce battleThe next morning came with great excitement. Today we'd challenge the Azalea Gym. From a human perspective, it might seem weird to look forward to a battle. But ever since I'm a Pokémon, I'm just super excited about it. I don't even know why I feel like that. It must be something about being a Pokémon. Anyway, after our breakfeast in the Pokémon Center we headed towards the Gym.
When we entered the big building, we looked into a familar face.
"Going for round two in Johto, aren't we?" Clyde smiled at Jess.
"Aren't you that guy from the Violet Gym?" Jess asked confused.
"Indeed I am."
"Then why are you here? I thought you'd work in Violet City."
"Oh, I work in every gym. I just tend to stay in a regions first gym until a trainer catches my attention. Then I'll just guide this trainer all his way to the Pokémon league. And you caught my attention in Violet so you can take that as a compliment, that I'm here."
"Oh, right then...thank you...I guess?"
"Ah don't be like t
