The new group that Ant had joined were slowly making there way outside one by one, getting ready to move on towards Viridian Forest. "Anthony Blackledge, could you please come to the reception desk. Your Pidgey is fully healed." A voice said echoed around the room.

Ant looked up towards the speakers slightly scared for a split second thinking he was in trouble when he heard his name. "Okay guys I'll meet you outside. Come on pal." He looked down at his Growlithe and smiled. When they got downstairs he walked over slowly to the reception, looking at the nurse on the desk who he thought was really cute. "Urm hi, I'm here for my Pidgey."

"Name?" She asked with a smile.

"Well I've not really come up with a name for her but something along the lines of fighter... She decided to attack me whilst I was sleeping." Ant let out a little laugh, confused as to why he told her that.

She laughed in reply and politely said, "No, I need to know your name so I know which Pidgey is yours."

Ant went red looking straight at her. "Ant Blackledge." He said quickly and quietly. When she walked off Ant clinched his eyes shut hoping that he was actually in a dream. "Obviously she was talking about your name, you fool." He whispered to himself.

A second later the nurse walked back with a Pokeball. "She's back to full health and she'll be fighting you in no time." The nurse giggled at him. "We hope to see you again."

"Thanks... I'm pretty sure I'll be back sometime." Ant replied forcing a smile to the nurse but as soon as he turned away the smile completely vanished from his face. He only wished he could get sucked up into a Pokeball and disappear.

As Ant walked outside he let out a massive sigh and went and sat down on a bench. The rest of the group were a little ahead of him outside a coffee shop getting some drinks. Ant didn't really like coffee so he wasn't too bothered about getting anything. It took a moment for Ant to realise that the Pokeball with his Pidgey in it was in his hand and Ant decided to let her out. The Pokemon flew out of the Pokeball and she landed on Ants leg. The Pidgey looked up at Ant and just stared at him. The two just stared at each other not breaking eye contact as Growlithe just sat on the bench watching the stare down. From the looks of things, the Pidgey was never going to back down, all she did was narrow her eyes as she carried on looking at Ant. "Hmmmm so what am I going to call you." Ant thought out loud. [color=00a651]"I think I'm going to call you Scrappy." The Pidgey let out a quick squawk which seemed to be an approval of the name. Ant smiled and scratched her head and the Pidgey looked slightly annoyed from the show of affection. "Well I'm glad you're happy with it." Ant said happily, chuckling to himself at the annoyed look on Scrappies face. "Well I think it's time to get a move on. You'll have to go back into your Pokeball for now, but I'll bring you out in a bit when we get to the forest so you can have a fly and hopefully I'll be able to catch some grass and water Pokemon. See you soon." A second later Scrappy was back in her Pokeball and Ant jumped up to meet up with the rest of the group. "Are you ready pal?" He asked his Growlithe.

Growlithe stood up on the Bench and enthusiastically barked, "Growlithe, Growlithe!" Then the Pokemon jumped off the bench and started walking down the road at the side of Ant.

A few moments later Ant had caught up with everyone and simply said, "Are you lot ready then?"

"Mum... Mum... MUM just listen. I know you said he was one of the smartest people you'd ever met when it came to Pokémon but he just seemed very odd..." Ant said to his Mum in a confused tone. His Mum had rang him up to see how his first day as a Pokémon trainer was going. It was the first time Ant had ever left Johto in his life and the first time he'd been away from his family so he was surprised his Mum hadn't been ringing him every half hour to check on him.

"Well he is getting on in life now, he was old when I was a young girl." His Mum replied. "So did the meeting this morning go well? Are all the other trainers nice? Were there any cute girls for you?"

Ant blushed a little at the last question but was used to how nosey his Mum was and got carried away with how many questions she asked him. "I'm not even gunna answer that last question. And yeah urm... The meeting went good... Everyone seems nice." Ant didn't really want his Mum scolding him for being too drunk to get there on time so a little white lie wouldn't hurt her. "Anyway I caught my first Pokémon today!" Ant said quickly trying to change the conversation. "It's a Pidgey. When she evolves and gets a bit bigger I'll be able to come and fly across to you. I don't think she'll be able to carry my weight at the moment though..."

"Oh it's good to know you're doing well Anthony. I'll let you get back to your new friends then. I'm sure you don't want to be speaking to me all day. I hope Growlithes okay. I love you."

Ant looked down at growlithe who was sat calmly at the side of him. He scratched him on top of his head and the Pokemon looked up at Ant and smiled. "Yeah he's doing good. Love you to Mum. Bye." He hung up and went back to waiting for his Pidgey.

The longer he waited, the more he started day dreaming and thinking of what would be the best strategy to defeat Brock. He knew Brock was a rock trainer and fire and flying types didn't really do much against them. As he thought about catching something else, a girl knocked into him and brought him back to the real world. She apologised to him and he looked over at her. "No it's alright, I'm..." Ant cut himself off when he realised she'd already walked off from him. Feeling kind of embarrassed because he'd basically been speaking to himself, he looked straight down not wanting to make eye contact with anyone until he heard the nurse say the name "Lizbeth Rowe." Ant shot his head up looking around because he'd been told that name before from one of the assistants at the lab. It was one of the other trainers and when he noticed it was the woman who'd bumped into him. He started to build himself up to talk to her when she'd walk back past him. He was planning on stopping her and ask if he could tag a long with her but when the woman finally walked past him, he just froze and no words would escape his mouth. A few seconds later she was heading up the stairs as he just stood looking at her with his mouth open. Straight away Ants face went red from embarrassment of not being able to say anything and just looked down. Growlithe looked up and him and just nuzzled his head into Ants leg to make him feel better. "Okay give me a minute. I'll have some food and then go and talk to her. She might be with the rest of the people as well! I just need something to eat first."

The young woman had gone upstairs but Ant went over to a vending machine grabbing a drink and some chocolate. After that he moved to a bench and sat down and grabbed some treats for Growlithe as well. When they sat there eating another name was read out who was one of the people he'd been told about. This woman was the complete opposite of the first who was brightly dressed. This woman who was called Karen was in all black with hair just as dark. They both glanced at each other as she walked past him. "Okay I'm gunna get up now." Ant said out loud to himself looking at the stairs. "Gunna go and introduce myself now." Ant said again as he sat perfectly still.

All of a sudden Growlithe shot up and ran towards the stairs, then looked back at Ant. "Growlithe." The Pokemon shouted at him to follow and gestured with his head to go up the stairs and suddenly he was out of sight. Ant had no choice now but to go and follow him.

When he got upstairs he found Growlithe sat down basically in-between a group of people. Ant rushed over to him and said, "Will you not run off from me next time please." Growlithe looked over his shoulders to Ant in annoyance knowing that Ant would have never approached them on his own. Ant suddenly realised he'd just ran right into a group of random people noticing the two girls who'd picked up some Pokemon from downstairs. He was slightly embarrassed because everyone was starring at him and he knew he had to say something. "Hi... Urm I'm Ant. Were you lot at the meeting with Professor Oak this morning?"

How could I be so fucking stupid. Ant had been saying that to himself all day. Sometimes even muttering it out load to himself as he was walking with no one around to hear him. Why he thought having 'just a few drinks' in the bar the night before would have done nothing but settle his nerves was idiotic. Especially seeing that Ant never really got drunk. He was too afraid of making a fool of himself and having to deal with his mistakes in the morning after.

The past few days from leaving his home in Johto and making his way to Pallet Town had gone smooth. The trains had ran on time and the directions to Pallet along with the map his mum had given him were simple enough. When he made it to the apartment he'd rented for the night, Ant had just sat on the edge of his bed debating whether it was the right idea coming here. That was the reason he'd decided to leave the apartment and ended up in a bar and convinced by a couple of girls to do some drinking games with him. Ant was too scared to say no to the offer and it was the reason how he'd forgotten to set his alarm.

"Growlithe... Growlithe... Growlitheeeee!" Was the noise what had woken up Ant. The room was spinning and the first thing Ant saw was his Growlithe hovering over him, licking and occasionally moving Ants face with his paw. "Growlitheeeee!" The angry Pokemon barked an order for him to get out of bed.

"I'm up." Ant replied weakly as he slowly moved out of bed. He hunched over the side of the bed and looked at his phone to see what the time was. Suddenly he shot out of bed. "Oh no, oh no, oh no! I should have been at the lab hours ago!" Ant pleadingly said to his Growlithe hoping that he'd have all the answers. The only reply Ant received was a judgmental look as Growlithe sat on the bed watching him. That was probably the quickest Ant had packed in his life shoving everything into his bag with no semblance of order. As soon as he had everything he sprinted off to the lab, Growlithe by his side.

It didn't take long for them to get to the lab, but every other trainer had obviously already left a long time ago. There was a few people in lab coats going about their business and it took a while for him to actually ask someone. The first person who Ant actually managed to get a hold of was the one who he'd actually set out to see, Professor Oak. He was completely different to how his Mum had described him as. The man had some really strange haircut with bits of plastic over his eyes and Ant was pretty sure the man had given him a broken iPod before one of assistants quickly took it off him and passed him an actual Pokedex whilst telling him all the information that was needed. Ant asked if the Professor was okay but he didn't really get a proper answer and was basically rushed out of the lab.

The adventure of a lifetime had begun with a hiccup and was the complete opposite of how Ant had it imagined in his head for the past few years. All he could hope for that it would be the only be a minor bump in what would be an amazing journey. Ant still knew that he'd never let himself live it down though.

Ant stood at the start of route one for a while working up his courage to actually start, taking a few deep breathes trying to calm himself. It was his Growlithe that finally made him make his first step by nudging Ants legs with his head. The first wild Pokémon he came across was a Rattata which Ant was planning on catching it but his Growlithe may have slightly burned it a little bit too much and made it faint. Ant spent a few hours to himself wondering around route 1, taking a quick nap next to a tree with Growlithe curled up on top of him, mainly to try and sleep off the hangover. He was woken up to the sound of a Pidgey squawking at him angrily on a branch above him and that was the first Pokémon Ant caught on his own. A Pokémon that decided to attack Ant himself. He had no idea the reason why it had gone for Ant, maybe it was just defending it's territory. Ant thought it was fearless and was glad to actually catch her. And that was the last Pokémon he'd see on Route 1 before arriving in Viridian City.

His belly had started to rumble for some food but he knew it was for the best if he first got Pidgey healed who was pretty hurt from the fight with Growlithe. That was the first spot he'd go to and then whilst Pidgey was healing, Growlithe and him would get food. As he walked into the Pokémon centre, Ant wondered if he'd bump into the other trainers who he was supposed to see at the Professor Oaks lab.
@role model I don't know whether you're still wanting to do this RP but I've left the end of my last post kind of vague in case you wanted to do a post.
Ethan - The mall - Ayla @Norschtalen

It didn't take them long to get out of the shop with Ayla in front leading the way with Ethan following a little further back. She doesn't fuck about, Ethan thought to himself as he watched her glide through the store. It was probably for the best anyway that she was in front because Ethan was lost and the main reason he came here was in hopes of finding any signs of a community close by. With the amount of walkers that had infested the mall, it was making Ethan less optimistic about the place. All he could hope for now was that it wasn't as completely ransacked as it looked, but he had a feeling there would be hardly anything left.

When they managed to get out of the shop Ayla went left and Ethan followed close behind. It was obvious they couldn't go right because of all the Walkers so they kept moving staying low and trying to be as quiet as possible. A few shops down Ethan had noticed a camping shop. "Ayla." Ethan whispered. "Ayla, in there." He gestured to the shop as he moved in. From the looks of the place a lot of the stuff had been robbed but not everything. Before he had a look to see if there was anything he could take, he wanted to make sure this place was actually empty, not wanting a repeat of the other shop. Ethan slowly moved further into the shop whilst trying to survey every part of the place for any potential walkers. When he got towards the back where the cash register was he noticed a door and the closer he got to it he could hear some ruffled noises coming from inside, too quiet to actually make out what it was. As he reached the door, he nodded to Ayla motioning that was going in. Grabbing the door handle, he started to twist it as quietly as he could whilst he maneuvered his other hand that was holding the hatchet so he could strike quicker. Ethan took a second before going in, he took a deep breath and crept inside.
