The Unloved Luvdisc: A Short Story

Once, in the deep blue sea, there was a Luvdisc, swimming, minding its own business. Suddenly, above it, a dark shadow appeared. It was Brendan, the mighty pokemon trainer, who was on his Lapras, searching for heart scales. He took out his trusty fishing rod, and cast the line. Luvdisc spotted the line, and knew what was happening. In hopes that the trainer would catch it, it swam up to the bait and bit on it.

Luvdisc was dragged up and out of the water. Brendan looked happy to see it, and Luvdisc hoped that that was because he would love it, and take care of it. Breandan ordered his Lapras to use a weak move, and, just like that, the Luvdisc was low on health.

Then Brendan threw a pokeball. It was a good pokeball, and Luvdisc did not struggle when put in it. Brendan grabbed the floating pokeball from the water, and put it in his belt, where an empty space was waiting. He and his Luvdisc began to swim back to shore.

Soon the trainer and his pokemon were at shore. They were near Dewford, and Brendan had to heal his pokemon. They entered the pokemon center, and Brendan gave his pokeballs to Nurse Joy, then went to the PC.

"I wonder what he's doing?" thought Luvdisc. "Is he going to use me in battle?"

After leaving the pokemon center, Brendan walked into the gym. It was pitch black inside, and Brendan bumped right into a trainer. Two trainers, in fact, and so a double battle was initiated. Of course, Brendan was ready. He had spent years training his pokemon. While the opponents had their meditites and machops, he had his fully-evolved team.

First, Brendan sent out his Azumarill and Sceptile. Amazingly, the opponents, twins Ham and Jam, had also spent years training their pokemon. They sent out a Machamp and Medichamp, both of which used their abnormally high speed to take out Azumarill right away. Brendan sent out Nidoking as a replacement, and it and Sceptile double-teamed Medichamp to take it out. Machamp, however, dealt serious damage to Sceptile, knocking it out. Brendan's last pokemon was Luvdisc. He sent it out to the battle alongside Nidoking.

"Heh-he...a Luvdisc," the Nidoking chuckled evilly. "Do you think you can help?"

"I'm the best Luvdisc you've ever seen! I can take out any pokemon in an instant! I've got my lucky heart scale, too!" Luvdisc replied. Suddenly, it was horrified. Brendan had taken its heart scale, and the opposing Machamp's fist was coming right at it at high speeds. Luvdisc was knocked out.

After leaving the gym, Brendan went out to sea and released the Luvdisc, even though it was still fainted. Then, he left.

I don't know about you, but this moment touches my heart. This poor Luvdisc, who thought that his trainer loved him, who thought that he could do well in battle, was let faint by its trainer, was stripped of his most treasured item, and left, helpless, in the middle of the ocean, by this trainer. What happened next was a miracle.

A Mudkip that was swimming and strayed from its trainer found the fainted Luvdisc. It propped the Luvdisc on its back and swam back to shore. There, the Mudkip's trainer, May, was calling out for it.

"Mudkip! Oh, there you are! What's on your back?" May asked. She approached Mudkip and saw the Luvdisc. "Oh, its fainted. Why don't we add it to our team? It can be my second pokemon!"

Mudkip jumped back and forth in approval, and the three of them went to a pokemon center to heal Luvdisc. There, May sent out Luvdisc and said to it, "I've got just the thing for you. A heart scale!" She gave the heart scale to it, and Luvdisc treasured it even more than its first one!

    @Bulba the Curious I noticed, but I do that, too.

    It was a sweet story, specially the ending. Some trainers, though...

    @EonMaster101 Except I typed "see" instead of "sea" at one point.

    Never mind bad grammar, I especially liked the ending, with the Mudkip and May and the heart scale. I felt it was time to release my inner nice.

    Edit: I changed it to "sea".
