The first thing I want to make clear is that this is NOT a creepy pasta, but instead me telling you about my first Pokemon. If you want to leave now, see if I care. If you are curious about other people's first Pokemon, (I know I am) please do read this!
On 6/16/2011, the day I gained a true friendship that would last a life time, I was jumping and twirling to the car. On the ride home I tore through packaging galore, a grin crossing my face as a hint of creamy pink lured me into a state of pure joy, I went faster, plastic, cardboard, styrofoam, packaging paper, and some other sort of packaging I didn't know flew around in the back seat. I halted. A tiny, pink, laptop-like contraption with a large camera in the corner sat in full view in the box in my lap. I slowly reached in and pulled it out, shaking with joy. I held it up high.
"You need to wait till we get home to play that." my Dad told me. "Why?" I whined. "Because you need to charge it." he replied. I groaned but put it down, but I couldn't help but stare.... A dsi..... no, MY dsi! Mine, all mine.
After a while I turned my attention to the game I would be playing on it. I tore through the tape, opened the box, took out a paper clip, and made a slit in the pesky plastic covering. Then I tore it away with little effort. I stared for a minute at the black dragon on the cover, then busted the case open with a loud click.
At that moment we pulled into the driveway. I grabbed all the things I needed and shot for the door like a torpedo. I slammed the door so hard I could have sworn the whole house would come down. I didn't slow down. I darted to an outlet and slipped my charger into my dsi, then into the wall. I pressed the power button, ignoring my Dad as he read the health and safety waring, then yanked out my game, staring at it for a few moments. Pokemon White Version. Typed in three different flashy fonts, with a beehive pattern in the background, and the Nintendo seal flashing gold at the bottom corner.
I slipped it in and started it up. After puzzling over getting past the title page, I selected new game and spammed through the seemingly endless dialog, then set my trainer status. Bang, I was in the over world. Two random kids stood at each side, me in the middle. I had no clue what was going on and knew nothing about what I was doing. I flat down knew nothing about Pokemon itself at the time. All I knew was that I needed to get through even more dialog, so I spammed A. Next thing I knew, there was a cut scene of a present opening, then the were three Pokeballs and a Pig like thing was displayed. The text read "Who will you chose to travel with you?" I tapped a different Pokeball. Now an Otter with a shell on its stomach. I tapped the third one with low hopes. The other two had sucked. But when I saw the creature that beamed on my screen, I knew what I wanted. I pressed A. The text read "So you chose Snivy, the grass type Pokemon?" I was asked Yes or No. "YOU BETTER BELIEVE I DO!" I shouted happily, and selected yes. The other two kids fought over Tepig then I was asked if I wanted to give a nick name to my Snivy. I selected yes and thought for a minute then started tapping letters.
V... I... N... E... W... O... N... D... E... R...
It was perfect. Confirm. The screen faded and I swear just before he vanished, Vinewonder winked at me. After spamming through more dialog I was thrown into a battle against Cheren, who sent out his Tepig. After winning that through lots of confusion, it was Bianca's turn. She sent out her Oshawott. I lost horribly. I was then healed and told to come to the nearest town. I met Cheren and Bianca on the first route and I was given the tutorial on how to catch a Pokemon and 5 Pokeballs. Then I was chalanged to a contest to see who could catch the most Pokemon. After capturing a Lilipup, Patrat, and Purrloin, I quit because that was all that was there. Then I had to go to bed so I saved and left my dsi to charge.
That was then, and it's been almost 2 years sense I got that Snivy. Now...
Now Vinewonder is a Level 100 Serperior with maxed out stats and a boss move set. Armed with Aerial Ace, Frenzy plant, SolarBeam, and Hyper Beam, it's been 4 months sense Vinewonder lost a battle. Scope Lens in hand, the Serperior's scream like cry always makes me feel reassured, it seems to say "Don't worry." "Everything will be OK." "I am here" I am with you." "I won't let anything happen to you"
