It's been two years since I moved to Aspertia City. I moved here to escape my previous life, to seek solitude. Here, nobody knew of Team Plasma, N, Ghetsis or the legendary dragons. Nobody knew who I was. Nobody knew where I had come from. Nobody knew that I had almost become the Champion. Nobody knew that I had wielded the Storm of Ideals, Zekrom. The only person I had told where I was going was Professor Juniper, who I had entrusted my pokemon to, telling her to contact me only in the case of an emergency. Here, in Aspertia City, I could be at peace.


At least, that's what I had thought. Shortly after I retired here, I learned that Alder stepped down as Champion of the League, handing the title over to Iris. He moved back to his home in Floccesy Town, just a short walk from Aspertia. We discussed many things, and he agreed to keep my secret if I agreed to help aspiring trainers learn how to care for their pokemon. My first student was his grandson, Benga. I taught him most of what he needed to learn to be a good trainer, and he set off on his journey. As news of my experience in pokemon spread throughout the two towns, support was raised for a trainer school to open in Aspertia, with me as the gym leader. In the meantime, I became the unofficial authority on pokemon in the area.


Thanks to Alder's influence, the Trainers School has finally been built, and the gym leader is to be assigned by weeks end. Not that it's any real mystery who it's going to be. I've already decided what my gimmick is gonna be and everything.


I recieve a message from Professor Juniper, telling me that Big Daddy's mother had laid another egg, and, hearing about the local gym opening, figured I might want it. I agree, thinking it'd be nice to have another Tepig, especially as it would help teach the kids about special vs physical attacks, a more overlooked aspect than type advantages. I hatch the egg, and Big Daddy now has a Little Sister.


Today is the day. The announcement will be this afternoon. Now to find out how my latest pupil is doing...


>Adam: Be the other guy.

You cease being Adam, but you fail to be the other guy. You are instead the other girl.


My name is Ikuno. I recently moved to Aspertia from Sootopolis City. My mother immediately took it upon herself to involve me in as many social activities as possible, as I lacked those opportunities back in Hoenn. Honestly though, I couldn't care less. I don't like the people here and I don't want to be trainer. I don't really want to train pokemon and honestly I'm a little terrified of them. Some years back, three giant pokemon nearly destroyed Sootopolis City and wreaked havoc across Hoenn. I don't want to be tasked with the keys to such destructive forces. I don't want to be a part of this competitive bullshit. I just want a normal life, where if I have pokemon, they're used to help with my job, not bred and trained specifically to prey upon gods. If others want to do that, that's their business, but I want nothing to do with it.

I forgot I was going to record my life in this journal thing. Well, I guess now is as good a time as any to start.


About two months ago, my mother came home to tell me that she had talked to an old friend of hers and that I was to meet someone at the edge of town. On the way, I met up with Adam, who had taken it upon himself to tutor me to be a pokemon trainer. I usually ignored half of what he said, and looking back on it, I kinda regret it. If I had, I probably wouldn't have had as much trouble as I have...

Adam escorted me to the cliff where I was to meet this person. It turned out to be a girl named Bianca. She told me that I had been chosen for an internship with Professor Juniper, and as such I was given the option of one of three pokemon. How the hell had I been chosen? I didn't want to be a trainer. I didn't want to battle gym leaders and train pokemon to be killing machines. I didn't want any of these pokemon! When Bianca heard that she was on the verge of tears. As I began walking away, Adam stopped me, explaining that not everybody who trains pokemon does so for battle. The purpose of this internship was to allow me to explore Unova, discover new things and to have fun. The real reason for training pokemon was and still is for personal protection. I grudgingly decided to give it a shot. I was offered an orange and brown piglet, a blue and white otter or a green, leafy snake. I decided to pick the Snivy. Adam then challenged me to a practice match, to help me learn how to give commands to my pokemon. I sent my newly named Firo out against his Tepig, who he called Little Sister. I won't dwell on the details of the match. As I started to get the hang of it, Little Sister attacked with such force that Firo was on the verge of death. We called the match at that point, Adam apologizing for hurting Firo. I ran off, towards Flocessy Town.

On the way there, I ran into Alder. When I explained what had happened, he brought Firo to the Pokemon Center and told me about his experience in training pokemon and how the best thing to do with my journey is to have fun. He then showed me how to catch pokemon, explaining that I'm only allowed one per area. With his help, I caught a Patrat I named Gustav. Alder suggested I explore to the north a bit and come back when I've caught some more pokemon.

While up there, I encountered a trainer. My confidence still shaken from my battle with Adam, I sent out Firo, knowing that Gustav was still too low of level. Luckily though, the other trainer was also just starting out, so I was able to win rather easily. Shortly thereafter, I caught a Sewaddle, Lua, and made my way to the Ranch. There, I caught an Azurill that I named Carol and decided to take a break and train. At least, that was my plan before Adam showed up again. He apologized again for hurting Firo, and wanted to know if I wanted to try again. Sure, I thought. He's only got one pokemon, I've got four. This should be a piece of cake. It was during this battle that I learned that the number of pokemon doesn't always matter. Little Sister is super ridiculously strong. It took the joint effort of all of my pokemon to successfully knock her out. Impressed with what I had learned, he began heading back to town. On the way out, we saw a thief running through the forest, carrying a Herdier. We chased after him, but quickly lost him. As Adam left, I kept searching. I eventually found the thief, trying to wrest his hat away from the the Herdier's mouth. When he saw me, he ran off, leaving the dog behind. I picked it up and headed back to the ranch, returning it to the farmers. They thanked me and I returned to Flocessy for the night.

I really like Ikuno so far. Also, I see some jarring changes in your new trainer cards... can't wait to see how those new additions came to be.
