Matty vs Matipuno: Ch.5
BOOM!!!! BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM!!!!
The explosion of fireworks echoed from the stage throughout the whole stadium. The crowd stood up and roared at the theme song play and the stage lights shone all around. The energy level went through the roof as the TV announcers could barely hear themselves and talk to the viewers at home.
"Hello, Ladies and Gentleman," one of the announcers near the ring said behind a huge black table, "this is George Button and with my partner in 'crime', Kanye Younce. We are live here to bring you the excitement of the WWI tonight."
"Oh, yeah!!" Kanye cheered, "We have the amazing match that will never be forgotten! The Championship Tag-team match that has been anticipated for months is tonight! Right here, right now!!"
George smiled and said, "Indeed, this match literally was almost on the brink of being cancelled five days before this day!"
"You're kidding!!" Kanye exclaimed, "What happened?"
"Well," George explained, "One of the competitor's partners participate

Aw, geez, I usually am not any good at telling stories, especially ones about myself. What the heck? I love a good challenge nowadays.
You know something? I know crazy things happen in the world of Pokémon, but I never thought anything would be anything like my life.
Wait, no Dang it! I already failed at my story. I didn't even tell you my name Aw, well, might as well retry and get started. Sorry if I sound uninterested or lazy, I get nervous when I tell my personal story. I really am a nice, caring, and "sweet" guy, according to some elderly women that told me. Uhh
Okay, my name is Thomas Oliver Gungsten. Well Actually, my REAL name is Oliver Thomas Gungsten. However, because I really hate the name Oliver and my parents um aren't here anymore, I decided to change the order and become Thomas instead.
I lived in a "famous" city, or so I am told, called Kilyla City. It's a little island near the Sinnoh Region. You may never have heard of it

"Holy!" I said under my breath as I freaked.
What was I going to do? Luckily, there was a huge rock I could hide behind, so I quickly did a (and I have a feeling I am going to hate this, but I am going to say it) "barrel roll" behind it and quickly peered behind it to investigate further and get a closer look.
The two Pokémon were trapped under a huge pile of rocks, like it had fallen on top of them. They were pinned to the sand and couldn't seem to move or budge the rocks off. All I saw were their heads showing. Both were covered in scars and bruises. They were struggling very hard to get out as the tide was starting to become closer and closer.
"What kind of Pokémon are those?" I wondered, looking at them.
I quickly remembered the book Kaname gave me and rustled through my backpack. I grabbed the handbook and flipped through the pages to find what kind of Pokémon they were. I looked at the first one; it seemed to be a grayish-black puppy. Its eyes had yellow scleras an

Buizel and Poochyena had bowls full of Pokéfood and apple juice, enjoying it on the floor as the old man and I sat at the table as usual.
"I never thought I would've seen it, Thomas," he said, smiling with such pride, "You in the presence of Pokémon; who'd of thought it? I just never believed it could happen."
"It's like you said, Old Man," I replied quietly, "I never knew when Well, I'm not in 'love' with them, but I-"
"I understand," he cut me off nicely, "So, do you think you are going to keep them?"
My eyes widened with a face of 'awakening', if you would think. Keeping them?
Wow, what a wake-up call. I did not even think that far.
"Old man, I don't even think that I could even go so far to capture them, especially after all they've been through," I said.
He took a sip of his juice and looked at me. "Oh, are you sure? I'm sure those two young boys would be perfect for you to take care of."
I'm sure I did a double-take there as I blinked. I was taken back.

The sun rose up on another beautiful day as the spirit of Kilyla City got ready to get back into the swing of things. The sunlight once again started to come up over the trees of the woods behind my home. The sunbeams were able to finally creep through my window and into my eyes. I remember I squinted as I kicked my feet in a tantrum. It was morning already? It couldn't be. I didn't accept it! I started to put the blankets over my eyes and try to go back to glorious sleep.
Suddenly, I remembered the little guys in the corner of my room sleeping on the bed I made. I quietly jumped out of my bed and quickly changed into my regular attire. Since I loved my sweatshirt so much, I had actually bought pairs, so I had an extra. After I had finished dressing and tied my headband, I slowly tip-toed over to them and looked at them carefully.
Poochyena was lying on his back. He was so cute. His tongue was sticking out of the side of his mouth, and his right ear and paws keep twitching. I giggled a

Swampert and Machamp gasped and took a step back as Mr. Pepperridge yelled, "What in the world! What is going on!?"
I let my head drop as I balanced myself on my wrists and knees. I began to clench my fists as hard as I could. The pain was too much for me to bear. I started to have tears run down my face.
All the kids started panicking. Some of the girls let out blood-curdling screams as I heard other kids say things like 'what just heck just happened'.
"Thomas!!" I heard Tucker scream as he and the others rushed to my side.
"Thomas, are you okay!?" Jocinda covered her mouth, squealing.
"Dude," Tucker yelled, "You just took a direct hit!"
I couldn't reply; I just screamed, "AAAAAAAAARRRRRGGGGHHHHH!!!!"
I heard Kaname say, "Jocinda, go get the school nurse and the principal now! Thomas is really hurt badly!"
She nodded as she started to get up.
"Oh, wow!" Tucker said, "His sweatshirt has a huge hole torn into it and his back's bleeding! He must've been hit hard!"
"He's going to need imm

"I'm fine," I smiled gently at them, "Actually, I was thinking about carrying them home myself, if that's okay "
I looked down at the ground for a second and looked back up to see my friends staring in unbelief at what I just said. Suddenly, a smile streaked across their faces.
"Dude! Are you serious?" Tucker said excitingly, "You holding Pokémon? I gotta see this!"
Buizel and Poochyena made excited grunts as they looked at me. They started to become fidgety as their tails were violently cutting the wind. They looked at me, begging me to come and carry them. Jocinda and Kaname walked over to me as I nodded.
"First, though," I said, "I need my backpack."
Kaname nodded as he briefly put Buizel down and handed me the backpack. I put it on as it covered the hole in my shirt, which makes me wonder: why didn't I think of putting it on at the schoolyard? Maybe I was just super tired and weak. Then again, Kaname took it; he probably put it on because I didn't have the strength or so

As I passed people and Pokémon, I had flipped up hood over my head, so nobody could recognize me. I hurried as fast as I could past people without falling or running. I looked down at Buizel and Poochyena; both looked like they had fallen asleep. However, they snuggled and looked up at me with total satisfaction and happiness on their faces. I smiled back at them.
"We're almost at the school, guys," I said, "I need you to be ready to hide."
Both nodded as we arrived at the schoolyard. I first checked as if to who was there. Nobody was there; the bell must've not rung yet. I quickly scanned the area for a hiding place that was close to the table I sat with my friends.
A-ha! A big bush right next to it. Perfect! I quickly hurried over to the bush and bent down in front of it. I unzipped my sweatshirt and both of them popped out in front of me.
"Okay, you two!" I said, "I want you to listen very closely. You are to hide in this bush and remain here until I come and bring you out to t

Walking back to the Town Square, it was getting pretty late. Now, I know that when I had woken up, it was in the morning, but come on; a huge rescue mission can suck up somebody's time in a heartbeat. So, I was getting pretty tired and hungry. However, I smiled as my brothers and I walked past the tents and out of Whiscash Pond's area. But before we got anywhere close to it, Sasuke suddenly grabbed my right arm and yanked me out of view.
"Hang on, Thomas I have to tell you something," he said.
Suddenly, as he grabbed me from behind, I got very nervous. I mean, what if he was mad? I mean I had gotten a bit pushy with Whiscash Elder, I had argued with Lucario and his son, I had disobeyed his orders, and so many more edgy and controversial things. I gulped as Sasuke wrapped his arms around me and hugged me, rubbing his face into mine. I blinked in surprise as he smiled.
"We're so proud of you!" he said, nuzzling my face as his tail wagged.
"Y-You you are?" I asked.

My heart fluttered with happiness. I smiled at them. I mean, if we remember, I mentioned that the bond between us was a brotherly bond. Now these two made it a reality. I had a family again. I had two older brother who loved me and care about me. They smiled at me. It made me so excited just to be with them now that I heard that.
"We'll explain," Sasuke said, "After all that happened up to that point, we wanted to show you how we felt about you. So, we decided to draw you a picture."
"The picture you showed that night I came back from the carnival," I said.
"Yes," Naruto nodded and continued, "When we showed it to you, we could tell you loved it. And when you told us you loved us back, we decided to stay with you. We loved you and never wanted to leave your side."
"That whole month you spent with us made our love for you grow," Sasuke added, "You tickled us, snuggled us, nursed us to health from sickness and injuries, and many other things. We had never felt so loved."

I didn't know what happened. I was just consumed with rage. But something was different. All I could see was red. Like bloody, fiery red. I just glared at the thing who had driven me this far.
It wasn't Mr. Pepperridge at all. I wasn't angry at him, despite his actions. It wasn't even what he said. I mean, yeah, sure it hurt. But "sticks and stones" is my motto to angry, hurtful words. I couldn't care about them. What was angering me was that look
That cold dark hateful look. I HATE IT!!! Why does everybody look at me that way?? I can't stand that look being glared at me! It drives me mad!!
I don't know if the rage or that red color or whatever it was drove me but I soon found my right hand form into a fist, and then fly at high speeds. It drilled into Mr. Pepperridge's jaw hard, ending his center of gravity backwards off balance. He fell hard on his back, smashing into the dirt. I'm pretty sure everyone reacted with a gasp and some words, but

"No! Zev, please," Sasuke begged, not daring to take a step forward, "Listen, we don't want any trouble. Please, just let Thomas go."
"Nuh-uh-uh-uh " Zev playfully taunted him, "You gotta meet my demands and then I might just let him go."
"Okay, fine," Batsu said calmly, "Let's hear your demands. What is it you want?"
Zev taunted me by rubbing me against his leg and stroking my right cheek. I grunted, closed my eyes, and was forced to feel this as he chuckled at me. He could tell it bothered Naruto and Sasuke, who had gotten gravely angered faces at it. They were shaking with anger as they kept their eyes fixed on me. King and Batsu did the same, but not with so much intent of helping me. He then answered Batsu.
"That bag of yours that has berries in it, right?" Zev asked, "I want it."
"W-What?" Naruto said, going from angry to stunned, "But we need the bag and the berries in it for the mission we're on."

My brain sent an impulse to my body as Shield charged at me, using Slash. I barely got out of the way to see Shinja coming at me with Acid Spray. I swear, my eyes got super huge around my sockets as I rolled to the right and behind Jocinda, who with Tucker, immediately stopped them from advancing.
"P-Purgy! What are you doing!?" Lyr screamed, surprised.
The boy smirked as he looked at me.
"You can't fool me, Thomas," Purgy said, "Shinja told me you have Pokémon on you. So, come on; let's battle!"
With that statement, Shinja and Shield grunted and advanced closer. Molly and Lyr got excited and looked like they might join in at any moment. I got fearful again; my knees immediately felt weak as Jocinda and Tucker kept their bodies between me and potential pain.
"N-No! Please, wait! You don't understand!" I pleaded.
"ENOUGH," We all heard a bold voice say.
I turned to see Kaname had a serious face. He turned to Purgy and acted like his uncle, being an adult.

Suddenly, my feet felt something. Grass. Ground. A place to stand! I opened my eyes, despite the burning, and found that I was in the scenery that the portal shown. I panted with heavy breaths; man, that hurt so much. My whole body was completely sore. It hurt to even breathe. I looked down and glanced at my body; yep, it was still yellow and covered in fur. Wait a minute I was standing then, how come I'm closer to the ground?
I tried to speak a word and take a step, but suddenly my body gave out. After so much physical pain, I wasn't able to move anymore. I winced and felt my body slowly start to lean forward, meaning I was falling. I closed my eyes and readied for impact. Just as I came closer to hitting the ground hard, I felt two arms grab my torso and gently place me down on the ground.
I then heard the first voice say, "Oh no! Is he okay?"
Then the second voice said, "Yeah, he's fine. It looks like he's over exhausted and maybe a little sore."

The sun shined down on my face as I slowly started to wake up. I guess that was some sort of dream I had. But it was so weird. Why of all places and things would I have a dream that was blurry the whole way through? It didn't make sense at all. Hmm it also didn't make sense how my body felt warmer than usual. Sure, the shine was shining on me, but it didn't feel like it was on top of me.
"Good morning, little brother," I suddenly heard right in my face.
I opened my eyes to see Naruto nose-to-nose with me. He was lying on top of my body and his front paws on my arms, pinning me down to the bed. I couldn't move whatsoever as I laid helpless staring at him. I tried to get up, but Naruto had me in a disadvantage.
"Morning, Naruto," I said, as I struggled.
"What's the matter, Thomas?" Naruto asked as his head tilted.
"You know what I'm talking about!" I said smiling as I stopped and looked at his smirking face, "You've pinned me down so I can't move!"

"Thomas. Get up. Come on."
I was aroused out of my peaceful sleep by someone shaking me and speaking loudly. In a sleepy-drunken state, I sat up and rubbed my eyes.
"W-Who ?" I started to say.
Then I recognized what was going on and saw the person who woke me was Old Man Fellows.
"Get up, Thomas. You overslept. We need to get you going out of here," he said.
"Oh, geez! Thanks for waking me!" I thanked.
I shook my head and hit my face a few times. The pain shooting through the numbness woke me up. I looked down to see Buizel and Poochyena still asleep in the orange and white blanket. I gently ripped it off them, stuffed it into my backpack, and got dressed. Once all packed, I rushed over to them and began to shake Buizel gently.
"Buizel, wake up!" I said urgently, "We need to move!"
With that, Buizel shook his head and blinked, waking up. He widened his eyes, realizing we needed to move most haste. We both turned to Poochyena, who was snoring. I tried to shake him gently, but he wo

With a confident smirk, I set the Walkie-Talkie back down on the table and looked at my stunned friends and family. For the first time in my life, I was gonna stand up to Mr. Pepperridge. Buizel and Poochyena were eyeing me somehow; they looked like they were proud and impressed.
"HAHAHAHAHA!!" Tucker laughed, "That outta spin his head around for a while! Nice one, Thomas!"
I sorta laughed myself; I was pretty sure as I still am that Mr. Pepperridge was ranting in his own rich and snobby polite way before he came to see me.
"Thomas, do you want us to leave for a while for you to talk with him?" Principal Vicar asked me.
"Aww and miss him gut that jerk like a Magikarp out of water?" Molly whined.
Just as Jocinda and/or Kaname was about to correct her, I shook my head and said, "No, I want you guys to be here. I don't trust him anymore. I suspect he could try to pull a fast one. Besides, you're his boss, so that would be a way to make sure he stays clean. Old Man Fellows, hold my P

There was a tiny shack building that came into my view as Sasuke continued to carry me and Naruto to it after our scuffle. It was funny for anyone near us to see a Buizel carrying a Poochyena in one arm and a Pikachu in another. It was kind of fun, yet embarrassing. But as we got close, Sasuke put us both down and gave us a clever glare.
"All right, you two; I don't want you guys to cause any trouble or to act like you just did, okay?" Sasuke said when he smirked.
"Yeah, Thomas, did you hear him?" Naruto teased me as he nuzzled me with a giggle.
"Hopefully clearer than you did," I teased back to him, causing him to playfully growl at me with a grin.
We suddenly felt a paw grab us around our necks and result into a pair of headlocks. I could hear Naruto growl and laugh as I opened my eyes to see Sasuke having us trapped with a sigh. He had a face of great patience as he scratched our chins. I have to say that was amazing. I loved it Sasuke's paws scratching my chin caused me

Everyone was appalled and stunned by the way my tone of voice presented the question. I had shocked the Elder and made Lucario a bit cautious. I could understand why. A teenager confronting the elder of a town? And plus, after I was just welcomed into his town? This would make the original me of when I first introduced myself into the story extremely nervous, but now I had gained confidence.
"E-Excuse me?" Whiscash Elder said, especially surprised.
"This woman just said her baby cannot get home or defend for himself, and you're actually taking your time to make up your mind on what team to send to rescue you?!" I raised my voice at him.
"You watch your tone of voice," I heard an adult say.
I looked over to see Lucario was staring at me very seriously. He had approached us with his son and was not too happy I just talked to the Elder like that. I looked up at him and saw that he was looking at me dead in the eyes. I could feel my brothers slowly walk behind me just in case.

Well, it was late evening when we had gotten to my house. The crisp and chilly winds had swept through the outside city streets. Meanwhile, all of us in my house were nice and cozy . Well, maybe the cozy part. It was mostly ugly (the circumstance, not a face description, gosh) in the room. I was barely able to speak a word though. The message we received cut through me like a sharp-steeled sword through a weak shield. Matty, on the other hand, was recapping out loud.
"Okay, let me get this straight," he said unimpressed, "Mr. Pepperridge is this rotten jerk who has basically harassed Thomas every day of his life to attend a school."
"That's correct," Principal Vicar said shortly.
"And, so he deliberately did this whole scheme to force Thomas to become a trainer at the school?" Matty asked.
"Correct again," the principal answered.
The boy asked, "Then, he flips Thomas over the edge and gets pummeled and fired."
The principal answered again, "Correct."

Everybody gasped at what I just said. However, I do understand why they gasped. I mean, I was accusing a Rescue Team of lying. I felt everybody's eyes on me as I walked to a space where everybody could see me.
"What!? Are you accusing my leader of lying!?" Houndoom snarled at me.
"Actually, no," I said, "But I find it quite odd by a couple of things. I mean, where's your proof?"
Team Pitchblack sort of blinked in shock at this question. They looked amongst themselves as Cofagrigus chuckled and shook his head.
"What the heck are you talking about, kid?" Mandibuzz asked, as her leader put Zev back down on the ground with Psychic.
I replied, "Well I mean, where's the proof that Zev stole something? I mean, I'm sure you guys are a very respected Rescue Team, but from what I know, you need to present physical evidence if someone does something illegal. You can't just blame someone because they're a bad person like a thief."

"Yep," Naruto continued, "It had happened somewhere on your island. So for about half a month, we searched all over the island for it. Every tree, every far view of the city, every opening we could find, but there was no sign of Ninetails. One evening, we decided to check around the shorelines."
"We kept searching when we found this little cave opening. At least that's what we thought as we tried to move the rocks that blocked it. As we pulled them out, we realized it was empty, but it was too late," Sasuke explained, "The rocks fell on top of us, pinning us to the sand and preventing us to move. That's when you came in and saved us, Thomas."
I blushed a bit when they smiled at me. Grinning as I rubbed my head, I couldn't help, but feel a bit proud of myself.

"Hello, Thomas," it said.
Suddenly, I flinched in response. I recognized that voice. I got excited as I pointed at it.
"You! You're that voice in my head that has been telling me to do stuff lately!" I yelled in realization.

A wish? Those two? I glanced down at them, as they looked back at me. With cute smiles, they closed their eyes and listened quietly as Jirachi kept explaining.
