Well, this is a little story which I have decided to write. It is the first story I have ever written apart from ones I have done for school assignments. It is certainly not the best storyline and is extremely short but I wanted to start out small as to work my way up in the world of writing so I don't waste my good ideas and write them poorly. Enjoy ~ -------------------------------------------------- Miguel the Magnemite By Nim Miguel awoke to the sound of laughter from the other pokemon. He opened his eye and looked around and saw exactly the scene he had expected. He had managed get stuck to the power generator at the Kanto Power Plant again. "Should we help him?" Ampharos questioned the other electric pokemon. "No, he looks as though he is part of that machine with all of those screws in is head." said Electabuzz smugly, " besides he is made of metal, he can hardly be called one of us!" Luxio and Jolteon laughed in agreement as the electric pokemon left Miguel attached to the machine that was supplying power to the rest of the region that none of them even knew existed. ------ Later that morning the workers arrived at the power plant to perform their daily duties. "Hahaha, look Phil, that Magnemite has gotten itself stuck to that generator again, how entertaining." one of the workers said haughtily. "Arrrghhh! That thing is always getting stuck in there and messing up the circuits with it's magnets." Phil said frustratedly. "Lets get it out of there before the boss finds out!" the first worker exclaimed. ------ "Why doesn't anyone like me?" Miguel thought to himself, "I may be made of metal but I am still an electric pokemon." That was when Miguel decided that he would leave the power plant. He had always wondered what was out there beyond the mountains. What was he doing somewhere like this when there was obviously no place for him. ------ The next morning Miguel left before any of the other pokemon awoke. He headed up the river from which he had seen the boats that carried the workers in and out of the Power Pant area each morning. Dark clowds appeared over head as he made his way up the river. The rain started to get too heavy so he had to take a break in a nearby cave slightly offshore. He zoomed toward the mouth of the cave as fast as he could and let out a small sigh of releif as he became sheltered from the growing storm. Miguel sat on a rock and thought about his life he was leaving behind when suddenly something collided with his magnet-like hands. "Ahhhhh!" Miguel screamed as he saw a pair of eyes next to him. The eyes appeared to belong to a disc shaped pokemon. Without further ado the stranger let out a bleat and the ground began to shake violently. Another figured charged towards Miguel from behind a boulder as a giant serpent emerged from the ground. The charging figure knocked him into the wall and causing him to faint. ------ Miguel awoke to three pairs of eyes staring down at him. "Sorry about my friend injuring you earlier" said one of the pokemon. "My name is Bronzor and these are my friends; Aron and Steelix." "Welcome to our home." Steelix said with a cheesy grin. "Sorry about hurting you before, I thought you were trying to hurt Bronzor." Aron apologised. "Ummm, that's ok....... I guess?" Miguel said wearily. " Wait a second, you guys look like me! I mean you are made of metal!" "Yeah, that's because we are Steel Pokemon," said Bronzor, " Aron, I think you might have scattered this guys brain when you used Take Down on him." "Wait, but I thought I was an electric pokemon?" Miguel questioned. "You probably are," Bronzor said, " You can be both, just like how I am a steel type and a psychic type." "And I am a steel type and a rock type!" cheered Aron. "Oh, and I'm a steel and a ground type....... I think." Steelix pondered. "Oh, well you see, I live at the Power Plant and everyone down there is only electric and I am the only one that is part steel." Miguel said. "Oh really, what is it like down there?" Bronzor asked. Miguel began to explain how hard it was for him down at the Plant and how he had always been teased and is now looking for a better place to live. "Why don't you live with us?" Steelix suggested. "That's an excellent idea, Steelix." Bronzor agreed. "That'd be a first." Aron said under his breath. "You mean it, I can really live with you guys?" Miguel said excitedly. "Why on earth not, you seem pretty nice." "Yippee!" Miguel cheered as he embraced Bronzor, Aron and Steelix's tail. ------ And that is how Miguel the Magnemite met his best friends Bronzor, Aron, and Steelix.
