This is a pokemon fanfic I wrote for class. Hope you like it!
It is your tenth birthday, and that means today's the day you receive your first Pokemon! Or it was supposed to be. Unfortunately, you live in Cerulean city, and you got caught in the morning traffic.
When you finally arrive at the Cerulean city gym, you find the gym leader there, who tells you the last starter Pokemon has already been taken.
Having already had to bike for an hour through the morning traffic, you decided if you're not going to get a starter Pokemon, at least you can ask the gym leader for advice to help you better prepare for your Pokemon journey next year.
At some point in the conversation you ask Misty if an all Water Pokemon team would be viable in the Pokemon league.
"Water is the most diverse Pokemon type there is," says Misty. "If you want to challenge the Pokemon league with an all water team, I say go for it."
"What sort of water Pokemon should I pick?" You ask.
"Well, what's your team strategy?" Misty asks back. "If you're going for an all water team, I would recommend choosing Pokemon that perform well in the rain."
"A rain team..." you murmur to yourself. "So I should pick a Pokemon that can learn rain dance for my starter?"
"Not necessarily," says Misty. "There are some Pokemon, like politoed or pelliper, with the ability drizzle. Drizzle summons rain upon entering battle without needing to use rain dance."
You think for a moment.
"What if my opponents use their own weather teams?" You ask. "If an opposing pokemon uses Sunny day that could be hard to deal with."
"Golduck has the ability cloud nine, which eliminates weather effects," says Misty.
"How does it do that?" you ask.
Misty is starting to look annoyed by all your questions.
"Well, why don't I show you. I choose you, Golduck!" she tosses a pokeball and a big blue vaguely psychic-looking duck materializes."
Clouds form over head to block out the sunlight but which are not heavy enough to rain.
"Goooollllduck!" the golduck cries.
"Why is it blue? Is that its shiny form?"
"Actually, maybe you should go on a Pokemon journey and find out for yourself. Now take your starter Pokemon already."
"But I thought you said there were no starter Pokemon left!"
"Oh I'm sorry, did I say that?" Misty laughs. "I lied. There is one more." She hands you a pokeball.
"What is it?" you ask.
"Psyduck. It evolves into Golduck. Enjoy your Pokemon journey!"
You thank her and then you're on your way.
