I know what you’re thinking- “Oh great another fake dumb Pokewalker Creepy-pasta.” Well, think whatever you want. I’m not here to make you believe me, im just here to tell you my story.
I never really got into Pokemon until the 4th gen was out. I’ve always watched the shows and played the spin off games like Hey you Pikachu! and Pokemon Channel. My Uncle used to even play the Training Card game and win real badges. I was pretty shocked they even had real badges.
Anyways, Its Middle School. Me and my friends would always bring our DS’s to school. We would sneak off during lunch or try to play it during class. Even during recess we would hide out in the back where the teachers couldn’t see us, and battle. It was great.
So one day, Im at lunch and I hear some of my friends talking about Pokemon Heart Gold and Soul Silver. I was somewhat confused and pretty interested, so I asked-
“Oh, Is this a new gen?” with wide eyes and a smile.
The two boys stared at me for a moment, then laughed at me. They then told me it was a re-make of the older games, the 2nd gen, Gold and Sliver for the Gameboy Color. I got pretty embarrassed after that and didn’t mention the game back up for a wile.
Week’s go by and the game finally came out. Most of my friends got it at launch, but of course lil ol’ me didn’t have enough money yet. I did a bunch of chores around the house so I could raise so cash faster- Seemed like it took forever but I finally got the money, and the next day I got the game.
I was fascinated with the game, I enjoyed it a lot more than my Diamond. I didn’t really put it down unless I had to eat or sleep, but I took my time with the game, I explored everything, beat all the the Pokethlon, Found all the Golden leaves for my starter. Best part was taking my Pokewalker at school.
I loved how I could take my Pokemon with me anywhere. I slowly develop this love for Suicune. My friends always teased me that taking a legendary with me was cheating. I didn’t pay any attention to them. Suicune will always be by my side.
After each day, before I when to bed, I would always return my Suincue to my Soul Sliver. I enjoyed reading how Suincune felt and what he did on our walk. Sooner or later I started talking to the pokewalker, talking to Suicune. I didn’t really realize it in till I checked him one day at lunch and my friends started laughing at me…. again.
A school year goes by, I start High School. The first day was really tough, I didn’t know where I was going, the hall’s were pretty small, a ton of new people, and the worse part- none of my friends talked to me anymore, They even said they stopped playing Pokemon, It was for little kids… I guess they thought they needed a new look, a “fresh start”. I was pretty upset, I didn’t have very many friends in the first place- and now I had none… Oh, but I did have Suicune, Didn’t I?.. Does he count? After all it was just a game- Right? I wasn’t even sure.
I broke down that night in a crying mess. I was in my room alone, Just me, my Pokewalker and my Ds. I was in a bad state, all I did was cry and talk to my Pokewalker, to my Suicune for answers…. I know I wasn’t going to get a response but it made me feel better. When I put him up for the night, one thing I did notice was that- “Suicune will always be your friend!” … I never seen that before- Maybe I skipped it the other times by clicking the A button to fast? Or maybe I read it wrong? Well whatever happen, It made me smile. I whispered Thank you and went to sleep.
Pretty much a week or so goes. It was after school and of course only my bus was late. There was me and a few other people waiting, most people got rides from their friends. It was pretty cloudy and a bit foggy, It seem like it was gonna rain anytime now. There was nothing to to but wait. I decided to check on Suicune. I clicked the buttion twice and-
“What is that?” a voice behind me said. I jumped and turned around, Looking up at the two boys.
“O-oh, um- Its a Pokewal-” and before I could even finish.
“Pokemon?! You still play Pokemon? I thought guys only played that. Wow, you truly are a nerd aren’t you four-eyes. Ha!” One of them said with an eerie grin.
… It was true. I was a nerd, I had Glasses even retainers, always was wearing some type of video game shirt or a big hoodie. And apparently I fit the part, I played video games, always on the computer, I didn’t talk to anyone.. I didn’t have and real friends. I was staring at the ground, with all these thoughts and emotions going thru my head, when suddenly one of the boys pushed me down.
I was shocked looking up both at them, they where slowly circling around me. Talk about high school being rough but geez, all because I played Pokemon? I was a nerd? Maybe because I was a freshman?? It didn’t make any sense to me. I tried to stand back up but they pushed me back down again. I started to panic, I felt like crying, I waned to run. They were saying things but I couldn’t hear them over the sound of my heart beat.
They started to get closer until suddenly it got really cold and the fog seemed to get thick very quickly, misty like. But this just- felt different. The boys looked around in confusion as so did I. Without any kind of warning, one of the boys got blasted with what it seemed like a huge gust of wind. He went flying thru the fog until he was out of my view. The other boy quickly turned and looked at me-
“Wh- What did you do!?” in a angry voice.
“I didn’t do a-anything!” I said weakly, still on the ground.
He started to approach me at a fast pace. I stood up and tried to run, but the fog so so thick I didn’t know where I was going. He was right on my tail. It started raining but this rain felt different to me- but sure didn’t slow me down!- in till I tripped on something.
“I got you now, you stupid twrip!” Staring right at me laughing.
I was scared. So scared I didn’t know what to do. I started crying. This was it, I was going to get beat up for no reason, no real reason that is. And in that moment this strange rainbow like beam of colors knocked the boy back. I jumped, slowly stood up and took a few steps back…I never seen anything like that before in my whole life. Looking quickly thru the thick, ice cold, fog while getting soaked, I tried to pan the area as much as I could so see who or what did that. Instead I herd one of the boys mumbling something, I panicked and just got out of there as fast as I could.
So much for waiting for the bus, huh? Soon as I was far enough I started walking- out of breath, panting…. I slowly noticed the fog was gone and so was the rain. My head was spinning, I couldn’t make sense of what just happened. What just did exactly happen-? Trying to make sense out of it I herd a little “Beep”. …My Pokewalker?
I took it out, and too my surprise there wasn’t a single scratch on it. I clicked that button- There was my Suicune with a heart above its head. I sighed and clicked the little round button again.
“Suicune will always protect you!”
I froze. Stopped right in my tracks, Just staring at the message. What just happened all made sense now- It was hard to believe but it was the only thing that did made sense.
That night, when I returned Suicune to the Ds. None of the logs said anything different when I thought this time it would for sure. I saved and shut off the game. Tired, I laid in bed, staring at my ceiling, re-playing the events that happened in my mind, over and over in till I finally fell asleep.
None of the boys ever picked on me again and nothing like that ever happened again.
To this day, I still carry my Pokewalker, with my best friend Suicune.
