"Cygnet! Slash attack!"
"Hypno! Try Hypnosis!"
Hypno brought up his pendulum, but before he could swing the blue disc
Cygnet delivered a mighty blow across the psi-Pokemon's torso. The
disc clattered to the cement, severed from its string. Hypno reeled
back, hand clutching its recently-dealt wound and other up in a
"You don't need your pendulum! Hypnosis again!" Drawing his hand back,
the Hypno brought it forwards in a sharp motion, slow-moving waves of
psionic energy spreading out from its fingers. Cygnet flashed a
brilliant yellow, and disappeared from sight.
His opponent looked around, spreading the waves of energy around it as
it scanned the area. Cygnet hadn't been recalled, and there was
no-where nearby to hide...
Hypno slammed into the cement, skidding backwards at an incredible
speed. Its motion ceased abruptly as it crunched into a retaining
wall, instantly knocking it out. With a a growl of anger, its trainer
recalled Hypno to its Pokeball.
Cygnet landed gently, body still glimmering with the last energies of

"Good match. I'll see you again sometime."
Felix counted up his winnings, and stashed them in his wallet. Four
thousand Poke, enough to buy something relatively large. Streetfights
in Hellion Town were rare, but trainers who came to the peaceful
resort town for a holiday often felt the need to exercise their skills
every once in a while. Most of them were quite wealthy, and provided
easy pickings for the few local Pokemon trainers.
Ah yes, it was good to be back.
The early spring air was just the right side of warm, enough for Felix
to wear his favoured apparel. Black top, loose grey/green pants and a
cap. Crystal-blue skies met the sparkling ocean on the beach nearby.
He raised his hand in greeting to a group of local girls cruising past
him on rollerskates. The Pokemon Tournament at Indigo Plateau appeared
to have finished, or was in the final round, Felix hadn't been
watching much TV of late.
One question had been firmly lodged in his mind since his awakening,
however. It seemed so trivial, yet fought tooth and nail with his
every thought for position in his mind.
What was he doing?
Sure, the Pokemon Journey was fun while it lasted, but shouldn't there
be something else? Isn't there something else in life besides the red
and white orb? He'd collected five of the eight Indigo League Gym
badges, and the others didn't seem like much of a challenge
considering that the majority of his previous travelling group, the
unnamed party of Pokemon trainers, had seven.
Going back to school didn't seem like an option now that he'd had a
taste of adventure, and neither did a regular occupation. Maybe he'd
find something on the Orange Island chain, or on the western half of
the continent. There had to be something else to do other than get the
last three badges and take on the Elite Four.
The young Pokemon trainer took out his wallet, and counted the day's
takings. Three hundred from a beach girl, two thousand and fifty off
some bloke with an electric Persian, and his latest four thousand.
Felix wasn't sure of anything, except this. Whatever he did with the
rest of his days, it would have to grant him the one thing he was
certain he wanted.
Cash. And lots of it.
His father had built an entire town from the ground up with money
amassed from victorious Pokemon battles. Tick's father opened up a
gateway into another dimension, for reasons which still remained
unknown. Felix missed his best friend dearly, but wherever he was, he
was probably having a good time.
Yes. That's what he'd do. Felix silently resolved then and there to
become, if nothing else, the richest Pokemon trainer on the continent.
And the warm spring sunlight shone down from above.
