Since my other story didn't work out I have a new one. But first, a few comments. 1. I didn't stop writting the other story because of little feedback. I stopped due to my lack of intrest in it. In other words, I knew I screwed up, so I'm fixing that. 2. This other reason I stopped was because I didn't have a lot of time. But I recently had a schedule changed so I can really keep this one. 3. I promise that I will post at least one chapter a week unless I say I can't. This will almost never happen. Okay, enough dronning. To the story! A Tunnnel of Light Chapter 1: Leaving Home Daniel woke up bright and early on his tenth birthday. he was going to be a pokemon trainer! He patted his dark brown hair, which was always messy. Daniel was your average ten year-old boy, somewhat slim, and tall. His bright blue eyes reflected water, and his hair, however messy, shinned like a becon. Daniel skipped breakfast dispite his mother's insisting. He was too anxious to meet Proffeser Elm and choose his starting pokemon. He ran down a hill to find Elm waiting for him. "You are the only new trainer this year," he began. "So you can choose which pokemon you want with no limitations. Your choises are Cyndaquill, Chikorita or Totodile." "How do I know which pokemon to choose?" asked Daniel. "You don't," replied elm. "But I can give you some advise. Most people choose Cindaquill for two reasons. The first is that it is hard to find fire type pokemon in the first routes of Johto and that a fire type is good when battling the first few gyms. Aslo, fire types can easily beat grass and bug types, which are the most common types of pokemon. Chikorita is the pokemon that the least people choose. It is bad against the first few gyms and is a grass type which are abundant, especaily in the first routes of Johto. Most people choose Cindaquill or Totodile and just catch a good grass type early on. More people choose Totodile than Chikorita, but less choose it than Cindaquill. Totodile, although bad against grass types is a great starter because you can't find water pokemon until the first gym is beaten. But knowing you very well, Daniel, I think Chikorita would be a great choice for you. You are always ready to accept a chalenge with open arms, and, if you choose Chikorita, this will be the bigest chalenge of your life." "I think you are right," Daniel told Elm. "Chikorita will be a great choice for me, so I'll take Chikorita." "This is fabulous," remarked Elm. "Not only are you the first person to accept the 'chalenge' of training a Chikorita in a year, but I have a Chikorita with a personalety types just like yours, wanting to chalenge everything with in limits and very optomistic." And so, on this sunny spring day Proffeser Elm handed Daniel a Chikorita and a pokedex and so, the journey of a new trainer begins to unfold.
