Previously on I Choose You!, the four trainers decided what to do after their Pokemon were stolen. Caleb went to the coast of Pallet Town, while Leon, Jaeger, and D went into Viridian Forest to find some Pokemon. D was unfortunate enough to have an old man use her Pokeball to catch a Weedle, but Jaeger and Leon came across a wild Scyther and Bulbasaur battling! The Pokemon were weakened, and Leon and Jaeger went in for the capture. Thus our story continues...
About this creation
The corresponding text is below each picture.
Caleb: *chomp chomp* You're right, Cody, this Shellder bait does make a pretty good snack. Good thing I am fishing for Tentacool, we get more for ourselves. By the way, did you see that guy on the boat a while ago?
Cody: Yeah, he didn't look like he was up to any good. It looked like he was heading to those islands just southeast of here.
Caleb: I have a feeling that he has something to do with my Charmander. Hey, I think I have a bite!
Caleb: It's a Tentacool! All right!
Cody: Whoa, that thing is huge! Go, Golduck!
Cody: Golduck, confusion attack!
A pulsing beam of psychic energy flows towards the Tentacool, giving it a terrible headache.
Cody: All right, it's weakened, throw your Pokeball!
Caleb: Pokeball, go!
The Pokeball hits, and brings the Tentacool inside.
Caleb: All right, I caught it!
Cody: Congratulations, you just caught your first Pokemon!
Caleb: I couldn't have done it without you, thanks for all your help!
Cody: There's one more thing I think I can help you with. Come with me.
Caleb: Where are we going?
Cody: Dave's Surf and Dive shop. If you want to go after that guy, you're going to need a boat. That Tentacool is too small to surf on.
Dave: Cody! Dude!
Dave: Dude! What can I help you with, bro?
Cody: I need a boat for Caleb here. He's got into some sort of mess, and he has to find out who stole his Pokemon.
Dave: Some shifty lookin' guy bought my last raft, sorry dude. He looked like he was up to no good, and kept saying something about Team Rocket. I shouldn't have sold to him, but refusing him looked like a bad idea. I do have The Argo still though.
Cody: Take her down, anything seaworthy is good. Caleb will take good care of her.
Leon and Jaeger: Mine!
Leon and Jaeger ready their Pokeballs, but Leon beats Jaeger to the throw.
The ball shakes a bit, with the weakened Scyther inside...
But Scyther, with great strain, was able to break free.
Jaeger: My turn!
The Pokeball pulls Scyther in.
Too weak to break out of two Pokeballs consecutively, Scyther is caught.
Jaeger: All right! Scyther!
Jaeger: That Bulbasaur is running off.
D: The heck it is, Weedle, use string shot!
Weedle envelops Bulbasaur in a silky cocoon, immobilizing it.
D throws her Pokeball and captures the twice-weakened Bulbasaur.
D: Yeah, that's more like it.
Jaeger: Wasn't that Weedle's Pokeball?
D: Yep. Get lost, Weedle, I have a real Pokemon now.
Weedle scoots off, happy to be free of these crazy trainers.
D: Sorry Leon, but Jaeger and I both have Pokemon now, and your only Pokeball is gone.
Jaeger: If we see your Seel, we promise to rescue him.
Leon: Thanks, Jaeger. I'll catch up if I can find a way to get a Pokemon.
The three trainers part ways, Leon to Pewter City and D and Jaeger back to Viridian City to find some answers.
D: I feel bad about just leaving Leon behind, he would have made a good ally.
Jaeger: Let's just focus on the task at hand, the longer we look back, the more we have to catch up going forward.
Jaeger knocks on the first door in town.
Man: Hello? Hey, you're Pokemon trainers! You shouldn't be in this town.
Jaeger: We know, some of our Pokemon were stolen recently. We're looking for some answers.
The man looks around cautiously.
Man: You'd better come inside, it's not safe out here.
Man: I'm sorry about the circumstances, but Viridian isn't the sparkling town it once was. The name's Carter.
D: I'm D and this is Jaeger. So you know something about stolen Pokemon?
Carter: I was going to be a trainer too, once. I had a Pidgey, and we would watch the Pokemon League tournament together every year. I was right about to challenge the local gym leader when my Pidgey was taken from me. I haven't seen her since.
D: What happened? Who was it?
Carter: I don't know, I was hit in the back of the head. I don't want to point any fingers, but there's a strange man who moved here recently. Keeps to himself mostly.
Jaeger: That's what happened to us, maybe there's a connection. We'll pay him a visit.
Jaeger: Get your Pokeball ready, in case this guy means trouble, D.
D: Gotcha, I'm ready.
Jaeger knocks on the door.
Jaeger: I guess nobody's home.
D: I think things aren't so simple.
Jaeger: I agree--wait, who's that?
The mysterious man breaks away from the alley in a full-out run, and the two trainers follow in hot pursuit.
Mysterious man: Whew, I think I've lost them.
D: Not quite.
Mysterious man: All right, I'm done running! You kids are asking for it, go, Paras!
Jaeger: Wrong move, pal.
The Pokemon circle, ready to strike.
Paras leaps at Bulbasaur with powerful claws.
Bulbasaur is knocked back, but Scyther moves in.
Scyther uppercuts Paras, knocking him into the air.
Grabbing Paras, Scyther carries Paras even higher.
Scyther releases, jumps back, and Bulbasaur hits Paras in midair with powerful vines.
Paras falls over backward, fainted.
D: Okay, it's time for some answers.
Mysterious man: Oh, crap.
D: What do you think is keeping me from setting that Scyther on you and cutting you up into little pieces to feed to my Bulbasaur? Huh?!
Mysterious man: Okay, okay, I'll talk! Some guys up at Mt. Moon hired me to steal Pokemon and bring 'em to them. They were wearing all black and they meant business. Please, just don't hurt me!
D: Get out of town, and don't let me see you there ever again!
Mysterious man: You got it, I'm gone!
Jaeger: Wow. Nice!
D: I watch a lot of gangster movies.
Jaeger: No kidding. Okay, time to go up to Mt. Moon. Now that we know our Pokemon can hold their own, we stand a chance.
Leon: No Pokemon, no friends, no nothing!
Leon: Whoa, what happened here?
Gym trainer: Team Rocket happened here. They came and stole Brock's Onix, and burned down the whole Gym for good measure.
Gym trainer: You look like a trainer, maybe you could help. We saw those Rocket goons running off towards Mt. Moon, do you think you could go after them?
Leon: Sorry, my Pokemon were taken too. I have nothing left. Not even a meal, I'm so hungry...
Leon goes on, and enters a house to ask for food.
Old farmer: Team Rocket?!
Leon: Don't shoot, I'm not Team Rocket! Please!
Old farmer: Sorry, sonny. Times are tough these days. You can't be too careful.
Agreed. Sorry for just barging in, but I'm just so hungry. My Pokemon was stolen, probably by Team Rocket, and I don't know what to do.
Old farmer: Everybody is saying that Team Rocket is doing something up at Mt. Moon. I know otherwise though. I heard that they originate near some islands off the coast of Pallet Town.
Leon: Thanks for the heads up. It won't do me much good though, I don't even have a Pokemon to defend myself.
Old farmer: You do now. He was going to be a gift for my grandson, but I think you need this Eevee more than he does. Go on, get your Pokemon back and teach those Rocket bums a lesson!
Leon: Wow, thank you! I won't let you down!
Jaeger and D head to Mt. Moon to hunt down Team Rocket...
...While Caleb does the same off the coast of Pallet Town.
Leon and his new Eevee leave the Old farmer's house, eager for a chance to get back at Team Rocket.
To be continued....
So, as far as choices go, Leon is the only one who gets to choose. Either go to Mt. Moon to investigate, or head down to the islands south of Pallet Town and look for answers there.
Remember, only Leon gets to choose, if you're not in the CYOA, don't make the choice. If you would like some say in how the CYOA goes out, join the CYOA planning group. The link is on the right margin of this page.
The Scyther was given to Jaeger off a coin toss, not by a decision on my part. I hope you like your Eevee, Leon! Use him well!
"you would not want to VISit Pallet town! TOOOooOwn TOOOooOwn. but you can get a potion from Red's house. HOOOuuuouse" lol, that's part of a parody of that song that goes "DOOOoooOwn" a lot. I saw "Pallet town" in this comic and thought of it :P
DUDE!! No really, this is a very long moc or episode, but it's getting more engaging. I think my favorite build is the lighting in the surfer dude's shack. Lol! Poor Leon. Thanks for the Scyther btw, and to that lucky coin toss.
I like it

i'v noticed that all the pokemon are from the first gen. was that on purpose? anyway, nice story. maybe you should right the pokemon story for gen 6!
Yes, but it has the Johto Region AND Kanto Region (Johto is the best region yet) as well as many cool Pokemon like all the starters, Espeon and Umbreon, Tyranitar, and Lugia (coolest Pokemon EVER!!!!!)
Quoting Cipher Admin Miror B.
I think Pokemon peaked in the second generation. The third generation was also pretty good. The fourth... not so much. Giratina is cool though
It's been pretty hit or miss in all the generations, but Gen. 1 has more hits. Gen. 2 has snubull, hoppip, aipom, and many more that are just ridiculous. However, it also has typhlosion, raikou, heracross, and tyranitar, so things aren't all that shabby.
Quoting Chopperskull (Luja)
i like this story, and i hate pokemon. I think you brought me back into pokemon LOL, might have to make something like this one day....
The anime is poor, and the new generations have somewhat declined in quality, but that's just what happens when an old franchise still tries to stay alive. I'm just trying to bring some life back into Pokemon for us older guys.
