Henry was walking through Viridian Forest with Pikachu trailing right behind him. “Pikachu! Come on!” Henry yelled. Pikachu turned away not looking at his trainer. Henry groaned and walked over to Pikachu. “Pikachu what can I do so you can listen to me!” He begged.
Pikachu thought and pointed where the exit is. Henry groaned, and sat on the ground looking at his Pokémon thinking what to do to gain Pikachu’s trust. Snapping his fingers, Henry got an idea. “What if I gave you a name?”
“Pi!” Pikachu replied.
Henry looked at his Pikachu head to toe to think of a name for his Pokémon. Henry then spotted the brown part of Pikachu’s tail has a significant pattern. “How about I name you Bendy, for your tail!”
Pikachu felt offended and used his Thundershock to shock Henry. Henry’s eyes turned into swirls, and his hair was standing up due to Thundershock. He shook it off and glared at his Pikachu, who was now laughing at him. “That’s not funny!” Henry yelled. Pikachu just continued to laugh, making Henry just glare.
Henry and Bendy turned back hearing rustle in the bushes. Bendy jumped in front of Henry, cheeks sparkling with electricity. “So are you ready to battle?” Henry asked. Bendy didn’t listen, and ran to the bushes. “Bendy! Wait!”
Bendy used Quick Attack on the bushes knocking the red fox Pokémon, Vulpix out. Henry gasped seeing the Vulpix. “A Vulpix!” Henry shouted. Henry grabbed his Pokedex and scanned Vulpix.
Vulpix: The Fox Pokémon
At the time of birth, it just has one tail. The tail splits from its tip, as it gets older.
“But, Vulpix don’t live around here!” Henry yelled. He smiled seeing his chance to capture a rare Pokémon. “This is my chance of capturing my first Pokémon! Come on Bendy!”
Bendy sighed and just lied down on the ground. Henry collapsed seeing Bendy being incompetent with him. “Come on Bendy!” Henry yelled. Vulpix turned around and ran off. “Vulpix wait!” Once Vulpix ran out of sight, Henry sighed failing at capturing a Vulpix.
At night, Henry made a campfire and was enjoying the lunch his mother prepared for him before he left on his journey. Henry turned to see Bendy already asleep turning away from him. Henry sighed, as he put the fire out and whispered, “Night Bendy.” as he fell asleep.
The next morning, Henry woke up to Bendy’s tail to his face. “Morning, Bendy.” Henry mumbled, stretching. Bendy used his tail and slapped Henry’s face. “Hey!”
Bendy chuckled loving to tease Henry. Henry groaned, got up and packed everything up in his bag. “We’re almost out of the woods Bendy then we’ll be a Pewter City for our gym battle!” Bendy’s ears twitched hearing the words gym battle. “You know, where we battle stronger trainers and win badges. We collect all eight we can battle the Elite Four and become champions!”
“Pika!” Bendy squeaked.
“Yeah! My dream is to battle the Champion of the Elite Four!” Henry exclaimed. “You and I will be a team! Catch new Pokémon, and our team will be amazing! What do you say?” Henry asked having his hand out. Bendy looked at his trainer’s hand, and they shook it. Or at least what Henry thought…
“Pika…CHUUU!!!” Bendy yelled shocking Henry and almost every creature in Viridian Forest. Bendy chuckled and ran out of the forest.
“Bendy!” Henry yelled chasing after his Pokémon. Henry chased Bendy all the way to the other part of the forest. Henry grabbed Bendy, and stared at him. “Why don’t you like me, Bendy?” Henry asked.
Bendy turned away not looking at his trainer. “Bendy come on, is something wrong?”
“Pika!” Bendy turned away. Henry sighed. “Bendy, is something wrong? Why won’t you trust me?” He asked. Bendy just turned away, not wanting to pay attention to his trainer. “I want us to be the closest of friends, and the only way we could do that is if you would listen to me. Could you do that, please?” Bendy didn’t respond, but faced his trainer. “Give me a chance, please.” Henry begged. Bendy sighed and agreed. Henry smiled hugging his Pikachu. “Thank you, Bendy!” Bendy was blushing, but tried not to show much emotion. “So let’s get to training!”
“Pika!” Bendy cheered.
From there, Henry and Bendy battled trainers and caught some Pokémon to help them in their travels. After enough training Henry and Bendy made it to Pewter City.
“Well here we are Bendy.” Henry and Bendy we’re at the steps of the Pewter City Gym. Henry faced his starter Pokémon, “you ready for this?” Henry asked.
“Pika!” Bendy shouted. Henry smiled and knocked on the door of the gym. The gym door opened and the two walked in.
The gym was empty, and dark. No trainer or gym leader in sight. “Hello! Gym Leader are you there?” Henry called out.
“Pika! Pika! Pikachu!” Bendy called out too.
The lights started to come on blinding the two. “So you’re here to challenge my gym!” A voice boomed. Henry and Bendy turned around and saw the Gym Leader of Pewter City, Brock.
“Yes! My name is Henry and I am here to challenge the gym leader!” Henry yelled back.
Brock chuckled. “So you’re one of the many new trainers I heard about.” Henry nodded. Brock smiled and threw a Pokeball. Out of the Pokeball was a Geodude.
“Geodude.” The rock-Pokémon called out.
Bendy jumped out of Henry’s arms to face the rock-type Pokémon. “Bendy, you ready?” Henry asked.
“Pika!” Bendy replied. The electric-type and rock-type went into a stare down.
“Bendy! Thundershock!” Henry yelled.
Bendy released electricity towards Geodude, but the Geodude didn’t take a single damage. Geodude shook it off, Bendy and Henry we’re in shock seeing Geodude took nothing.
“Now Geodude, Tackle!” Brock commanded.
Geodude then rammed into Bendy, making the mouse Pokémon fall back. “Bendy are you okay?” Henry asked. Bendy got up, still wanting to battle.
“You see Henry, Geodude is a Rock/Ground type Pokémon. Ground-types don’t get any damage from Electric-type moves.” Brock explained.
Henry looked at Bendy; he thought he could keep on going and keep using him against Brock’s Geodude. However, another part of him realized Bendy could get hurt and he would never win at this rate. Henry looked at the Pokémon he captured from earlier and thought of his plan.
“Bendy! Come back!” Henry yelled. Bendy ran back Henry, as the later pulled out a Pokeball, and called out his next Pokémon. “Mankey! Let’s go!”
The Pig Monkey Pokémon stared at the Rock Pokémon. “Use Low Kick!” Henry commanded. Mankey then kicked Geodude hard. The Rock Pokémon slammed into the wall knocking it out.
“Yes! That was easy!” Henry cheered.
Brock put Geodude back into its Pokeball. “Not bad, but let’s see if you can handle my Onix!” He threw his Pokeball and out came a large rock-type Pokémon.
“Mankey! Use Low Kick again!” Henry commanded.
Mankey kicked Onix, but it didn’t do a lot of damage like what happened with Geodude. “Now Onix use Tackle!” Brock commanded.
Onix roared and rammed into Mankey. Mankey dealt critical damage and was knocked out.
“Mankey, return!” Henry yelled, returning the fighting-type Pokémon back into its ball. Henry grabbed another Pokeball, and threw it. “Come on out, Nidoran!”
A blue, female Nidoran came out of the Pokeball. “Use Poison Sting!”
Nidoran launched stingers at Onix; it didn’t do a single thing till Onix felt some pain. “Onix! Use Bide!” Onix roared and charged up energy.
“Nidoran, keep using Poison Sting!” Henry commanded.
Nidoran kept launching Poison Sting at Onix till it was powered up. Onix then light up and blasted a light at Nidoran, knocking her out.
“Nidoran!” Henry shouted. He took out his Pokeball and put her back in. Henry only had Bendy left on the team. He saw how strong Brock was, but he didn’t have any choice. He sighed and brought Bendy back in to battle. “Bendy let’s go!”
Bendy went up to battle. Henry had to think of something fast before the battle ends with him loosing. Henry then thought of an idea. “Bendy, use Quick Attack!”
Bendy then dashed and attacked Onix. “Onix! Use Tackle!” Brock yelled.
“Bendy doge it!” Henry yelled back. Bendy missed Onix’s move, suddenly the rock-type felt pain.
“Onix what’s wrong?” Brock asked. He then remembered Nidoran using Poison Sting on Onix earlier, and it came to the conclusion that Onix is poisoned.
“Did Nidoran poison Onix?” Henry asked himself. He gave a small smile and looked at his Pokeball. “Thanks Nidoran.” Henry then looked back at Onix, wanting to finish this battle once and for all. “Now! Quick Attack!” Henry yelled.
Bendy then dashed and slammed into Onix, knocking it out. Brock and Henry we’re both in shock over an electric-type taking down a rock-type Pokémon. “Bendy, you did it!” Henry smiled.
“Pika!” Bendy cheered hugging his trainer.
Brock put Onix back into its Pokeball and walked up to Henry. “Congratulations, Henry.” Brock said walking over to the young trainer. He went into his pocket and pulled out a badge for the young boy. “You and your Pokémon worked together great, and you earn this, a Boulder Badge.”
Henry looked at the badge, and picked it up looking at it shine. “Wow! Thank you.” Brock nodded in reply.
Outside the gym Brock led Henry to the next route. “If you take this route here, you can make it to the next gym.”
“Thank you, Brock.” Henry looked at Bendy, “Ready to get going?”
“Pika!” Bendy nodded. Henry and Bendy ran off to the next route to keep the adventure going.
