Just another rainy day. It rained a lot these days, but no one really noticed. Everyone went about their business, people lived their lives. Jeremy did what he always did on rainy days. He sat in his room staring out at the window. He was bored. There was nothing to do. The cable was out so he couldn’t even watch the Shinoh Grand Festival that was going on. His best friend was already out on his Pokemon journey so there was no one to hang out with. Jeremy was still nine years old and thus still had to wait one year. With nothing to do, he sat in his room with his 3 legged pet Growlith, Ed who was sleeping on his bed. More thunder crashed, and the lights went off. “ED!!!” Jeremy heard his mother call. Ed perked up and ran out to the den where Jeremy’s mother wanted the fire Pokemon to light the fire place to warm up the house. Jeremy decided to get up and see if there was anything to do elsewhere in the house. He didn’t expect there to be however, it was just going to be another boring day. There was another crash of thunder, except….it didn’t sound like thunder. It sounder more like an explosion. Jeremy did not really care nor did anyone else. Jeremy assumed the wind was playing tricks on him, until Ed started to growl. “What up Ed,” Jeremy questioned with a slight bit of interest. “What is it?” The Pokemon just growled and stared at the door. There was another clash of off-sound thunder. This time much louder and closer. Ed growled even louder now. Ed looked out the window, and dismissed the noise as a blown transmitter or something the storm caused. He was walking back to his room when suddenly the front door blew open with a crash. Jeremy’s mom rushed to the room. “What happened?! Did the storm blow down the door again?” Jeremy looked up and saw a shadow standing in the doorway. It had a horn on its right, and in the light looked like a giant Ying-Yang symbol. It said in a low bold voice. “Absol” Jeremy’s mom had already gone to get the plywood used when the door was blown down in the past. She had obviously not seen the creature standing there. “Absol” It repeated in the exact same tone and voice. Then, suddenly as quickly as it had appeared, it disappeared. Jeremy just stood there, jaw open. He noticed that his Growlithe had stopped growling and was sitting and wagging his tail. Then something hit him. He had remembered hearing that Absol only appeared before a disaster or great tragedy. That was all the time he would get. In an instant there was another crash of off-sound thunder and another creature stood in front of him. Not the Absol like before, this time it was a giant Poke-ball, no it was an Electrode. “Electrode!!!!” it yelled in an almost computerized voice, and then proceeded to explode. Jeremy saw a flash of yellow, then darkness. Comments? This is my first fan-fic and if it's recieved well I'll make more.
