Pokemon are our LightVolcarona, the shining sun
Gave the world light when it had none
And Rapidash, the flaming steed
Shouldered out weight with blazing speed
Absol, made of darkest night
Warned us of disaster’s might
As Excadrill, with claws of stone
Dug the tunnels to lead our own
And Dragonite, of legends told
Saved stranded sailors since the times of old
Celebi, the traveling maid
Spread peace to cease the restless blade
As Leavanny, in gracious green
Sewed clothes from leaves, the forest queen
And Shaymin, in both Sky and Land
Helped gratitude spread from hand to hand
Togekiss, through times old and gone
Flew to herald the coming dawn
The playful prince, young Manaphy
Connected hearts across the sea
Always, Pokémon have helped us survive
Sharing our shelter, our food, our lives
By our side, faithful and loyal
Doing their part in our ceaseless toil
So take time to thank them for all that they’ve done
For it hasn’t been always that we’ve seen the sun
Potentially Pokestuck1. Green – Prince of DoomPotentially Pokestuck2 years ago in Humor More Like This
Green saw as Red crashed to the ground in defeat. The boy's body was tainted with scars. Blood inked his every flesh. He watched as the manic black beast plunged for his best friend. A sword was raised by the creature's sharp claw, tip perfectly aiming at Red's slowly beating chest.
But, instead of screaming in horror, Green merely flashed a sly grin.
Taking one sharp breath, he snapped his iris-less eyes open.
The creature was dying.
Green saw as a certain red-eyed boy floated above the fallen beast, red eyes staring coldly at it. Red's body was free from neither scratch nor harm. No blood tainted his clothes. No scars marked his skin. The Time player was healthy and clean as whistle; just as Green wanted.
The Prince flashed a wide smile. Yes. Finally Green held an important role that people could respect and see. But most of all, he was happy because instead of fighting against his best friend, he was able to fight alongside him.

"Let's see, how to cook eggs." Silver muttered to himself as he scanned around the kitchen. One finger tapping his mouth, he eyed the fridge. A cocky chuckle blew off his lips. Feet walking toward the refrigerator, Silver opened it and took out an egg. He scoffed arrogantly, palm cozily holding the hard shell. "This will be easy."
Switching the grill on, Silver placed a small pot on top of the lighting fire and poured some oil on it. As he did, his mind wandered to the sleeping Kotone in their room. For some apparent reason, Silver decided to surprise her in making breakfast. He knew Kotone did most of the cooking. It wasn't that she was ordered to.
No. What annoyed Silver was the fact that she didn't believe him when it came to him cooking.
An egoistic scoff wheezed through gritted teeth. "Saying I can't cook. Please." Huffing his chest in pride, Silver raised his hand slightly and gently cracked the egg on the pot's end.
He then stopped when the egg didn't show a sp

"But you shall witness one day the revival of me and my Team Rocket!" Giovanni exclaimed in triumph, voice though filled with defeat and despair. Blowing a heavy sigh, the man hid his hands inside the pockets of his trench coat and looked down. The air was thick with grief and suffering, the winds blowing the sound of torture in his ears. "One day you will understand."
"Okay! Bye bye Papa!"
The grim atmosphere changed in a blink.
Giovanni froze to hear such a cheerful reaction. Slowly he looked over his shoulder, glancing at the young redhead – who was flashing the widest smile he had ever seen.
"Have fun forming another Team Rocket, Papa! I love you!" Silver waved happily, one foot bending backwards like a little girl. He flashed his white set of teeth, cheeks flushing in bright shades of red.
The infamous leader of Team Rocket could only gawk at his idiotically waving son, mouth hanging low in utter disbelief.

"Aww, it's raining!" Kotone sulked out loud as she gazed out the window. Although it was still 12 in the afternoon, the sky had already taken its dark and grim tone. A pout forming her pink lips, the brunette landed her bum on the sofa and crossed her arms like a child.
Suddenly, she felt a pair of strong arms lifting her petite body. In less than a second, Kotone was placed on something – someone – rather than the comfort of her own couch.
But then again, sitting on the lap of someone you love fairs so much better.
"Stop complaining," Silver stated blankly, left hand flicking the remote while right arm comfortably wrapping around her waist. She stared at his face in a dumbfounded manner, fists close to her beating heart. Silver bared no expression, as if what he was doing was something so common to him.
But she stand corrected the minute Kotone saw the rushing red in his cheeks.
Mouth slowly trembling out of nervousness, Silver let out an awkward cough and ruffled her h
The Legend of Black and White: a PoemThe Legend of Black and White: a Poem3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Twin dragons, twin heroes,with opposites alike
Betwixt truth and ideals; the black and the white
Both seeking the world to change with their might.
But a great war erupted, bringing the brothers divide
And the whole of Unova fell to ruin.
With the land lying in waste, the two dragons fought on
Guided by the brothers' brawn
While Unova pleaded for white flags to be drawn
But on the dragons fought, until they were gone
And retreated into the Light and Dark stones.
The heroes vanquished, Unova was left without aid
Towns to rebuild, with debts to be paid
But what better for their pride to be laid?
Though lives were taken, memories fade
Of the ambitions of two foolish rulers.
But mark my words, the legend lives on
Destined to continue some other dawn
Two new heroes will lay each pawn
The dragons again will rise, and choose to serve right or wrong
As the battle for the future of Unova begins afresh.
Now learn from this lesson, aye, don't be a fool
A coward to fight but proud to rule

The dreamer who dreamed too high.
A myth to subdue glory-seeking youth.
It's the tale of a foolish boy who dared to try to reach the sun,
But the heat was too great,
and his make-shift wings melted,
Dooming him to the frothing waves below.
But is that really the truth?
Maybe it's not a cautionary tale,
But one of hope-
Of hope for all dreamers to come.
He didn't fail to touch the sun,
Rather he touched the greatest glory.
He soared past the bewildered birds,
On past the highest mountains,
On past cold reality
And cruel calculation
And upon finding this nova of truest truths and most joyful joys,
He broke free from his mortal shell,
Leaving his story for future dreamers to tell.

Though the water's Great Guardian shall arise to quell the fighting,
Alone its song will fail. Thus the Earth shall turn to Ash.
O, Chosen One, into thine hands bring together all three.
Their treasures combined, tame the beast of the sea.
From the trio of islands, ancient spheres shall you take,
For between life and death, o the difference you'll make.

And the world will be healed by the Guardian's song."

"So then Ethan totally flipped out and it turns out Marill was just hiding behind the gym. Isn't that funny, Silvy?" The pig-tailed brunette asked, looking at the red-head who kept his eyes glued onto a random page of his book.

After the events of last night, Hugh couldn't take it anymore; he's never been able to hold a grudge against Rosa, not even when they were little. The bluenette waited at the counter of the pokemon centre, still undecided on his next move.

"Would you like us to-?" "Excuse me!" A brunette exclaimed, dragging the nurse away. Hugh raised an eyebrow.

Silver stormed on the road, fists clenching. He ignored the glances the people of Azalea Town were throwing at him. He didn't care. He was too angry to focus on anything else other than what he had discovered earlier that day.
He had heard that a certain criminal organization had returned after three years of being disbanded.
And what's worse—someone beat him to defeating them at Slowpoke Well.
And, he happened to bump into someone familiar in the process.
After some time training his weak Pokémon, Silver went to the Pokémon Center, to heal his Pokémon. He glanced around the center, a bored expression on his face. Tapping his fingers on the counter impatiently, he waited for his Pokémon.
After Nurse Joy handed him his Pokémon, he walked off into the doors of the center. As he opened the door he froze as a woman said, "...Team Rocket is back, it's too dangerous to go outside, sweetie."

It's been a week since the 'incident' at Ilex Forest.
And Silver couldn't stop thinking about her. He couldn't get her out of his head. It was as if she's possessed his mind.
And somehow, it irritates him and pleases him at the same time.
It irritates him how one kiss by a stupid, annoying pig-tailed weakling could cause Silver to be spaced out. Even his Pokémon have noticed. He hasn't trained them to the extreme. And surprisingly, they were worried about their master.
It pleases him to know that she may be the person who actually cares about his existence.
So, here he was at Ecruteak city, at the Burned Tower. The said place looked... broken. Rubble from the roof and walls were everywhere. The floor creaked when one stepped onto it, which obviously made it unsafe. 'Geez, this whole place is gonna fall apart.'
He looked at the center; there was a gaping hole that led to the bottom level of the tower. Three Pokém

"He's inside," Lily answered, the Snivy she'd been playing with hopping up onto the fence to greet Mei. Lily then walked over to the back door, calling, "Big brother! Mei's here!"
From within the house came the sound of approaching footsteps and soon, Lily's elder brother, Hyu, emerged onto the back porch. Seeing Mei patting the top of his Snivy's head, he gave her a lazy smirk. "Hey, Donut-Buns," he greeted her, leaning against the door frame and sticking his hands in his pockets.

After their battle—which Silver had lost—the two trainers parted ways. Silver went to the Pokémon center, and Lyra going to who knows where.
Of course, Silver was angry to lose to a weakling—again. But at the same time... he gained some respect for her. Although he doesn't know why. Maybe it was because she beat him. Twice. Or maybe it was because she beat Team Rocket before he even knew they were back.
She was accomplishing the things he couldn't complete himself.
Silver didn't want that to happen again.
So, he decided to do the one thing to make his weak Pokémon stronger.
He decided to train the living hell out of them.
And the best place to train his pathetic Pokémon, according to Silver, was at Ilex Forest.
So, he went over to the forest, as planned.

Red scanned the mass of people for his Pikachu, hoping that the tiny electric mouse hadnt found his way into the circuit breaker and was nibbling on it for electricity. Hed done the same thing last year and it has resulted in a party that had to end early because the power had been stored in Pikachus glowing red cheeks.
In times like those, he wished he could just stuff his pokemon into the ball and be done with it but that would probably result in a massive Thunderbolt to his person once his yellow friend finally made it out. And that would probably hurt worse than the collective rage of people blaming him for letting Pikachu roam free.
Pikachu almost seemed to sense when his Trainer was thinking about him and Red watched with a relieved sigh as he came skittering toward his legs. Pikachu let out an excited cry and sniffed at Reds feet before climbing up his leg and gripping his shirt tightly as it stared into his Trainers face.
