My name is Adam, and what you may be reading is the last thing that you may remember me by before I leave you all. This is the story that had started it all. I heard a voice come into my head one night while I was sleeping, like someone was calling me for something. It was calling for help but I couldn’t distinguish if it was a boy or girl. Then I heard another person of a different voice, “Hey Adam, - seems like we’re both - heh don’t worry about it! -” Then the voice had been cut off and I heard nothing for the rest of the night.
The next morning I woke up in my bedroom still a human and nothing different. I went into my closet, grabbed my clothes and got dressed then went to brush my teeth. I didn’t notice anything wrong with myself but I kept thinking about that dream I had. Who could that voice had been. How did that last voice know who I was? Well for now all I did was just think about it. I got my breakfast, which was just some Cheerios, and then I went off to go see my friend. I thought that if I went to see him, then he might know what was going on with my dream. Then I heard something coming from my closet upstairs before I left. I slowly approached it then BAM! A Zangoose had pounced on me and started laughing then I started laughing. “Aww really Nick? Why’d you try to scare me like that? You silly little Zangoose!” I asked him but of course I only got Pokéspeech or just “Zang Zang Zangoose Zang.”
How could I have forgotten Nick of all people? He was my best friend and longest one with that. To me he was a gift from my parents, the only thing that my parents restricted was that he couldn’t mess up or act rowdy in the house or else he gets kicked out. We still had our laughs outside of the house and everything but boy if my parents found us fooling around, both of us would never hear the end of it. “Come on buddy we need to go before we’re late!” After saying that he immediately jumped onto my shoulder and smiled at me. I grabbed my backpack and put on my back and I was cautious of Nick’s tail since some cat ferrets don’t like their tail being touched. We both ran downstairs and then ran out the door to the North district. I ran as fast as my legs could carry both of us until we finally reached my friend’s house. By that time, it was almost 11:30 or soon to be lunch time.
I knocked on the door several times and both Nick and I waited. “You don’t think they got bored of waiting for us and just left right?” “Zang Zangoose.” We waited for a few minutes and then we decided to inspect the back of the house. The backyard had somewhat of a forest view and a playground for any pokémon big or small. “Guess they aren’t back here either. Where could they be?” I looked at Nick for some answers but he just shrugged and looked to the forest. “I don’t think they would be there, I highly doubt it.” But then suddenly we both got tackled by something with soft cream fur and was slightly bigger than an average human being. “Heh well guess you got the good side of him today.” A voice from behind us said, then the thing that was on us got up then licked my face. “Heh heh stop it!” I laughed as I now realized that it was a Typhlosion that was on me. “Typh Typhlosion!” “Well nice to see ya Adam and Nick, how’s it going you two?” I looked up and there was my friend dressed in a blue hoodie, black spiked hair, and some jeans. “Hey Taz, it’s been a while hasn’t it?” “Yeah like a few weeks. Seems like both our pokémon haven’t seen each other in a while either.”
Off to the side there was Nick conversing with the Typhlosion. “Sorry about Flamey, I’ve been trying to get him to stop tackling everyone then licking their faces after that.” “It’s fine, it’s only some slobber from a Typhlosion. Not like it would hurt anyone right?” After some catching up with our lives Taz and I finally got down to the topic I really wanted to discuss.
“So you heard a voice in your dream?” Taz asked me. “And what did it sound like?” “It was calling to me, like I was going somewhere with someone. Then after that it faded and I woke up.” It was hard to explain that story, even Nick looked at me in confusion. “It must have been your imagination playing with you. Or maybe you just dreamt that you were with Nick and he could talk to you.” “Ha ha it could have been. But we’ll never know what pokémon are actually saying.”
Several hours of talking and playing around…
“Hey you don’t mind if I sleep over do you?” I asked him and then washed some dishes. “Sure I don’t mind. I could help you with those dreams of yours, just don‘t snore or I‘ll kick you out.” Taz laughed and put away the dishes that Adam had washed. Once we were done with the dishes we decided to turn in early to get to the bottom of my dream mystery. I slept with Nick on the ground in a small sleeping bag while Taz and Flamey slept on the bed. Of course we both fell asleep but this is where things went…let’s just say somewhere.
There I was in my dream again, this time Nick and the others were there too. Strange enough Taz was awake when I woke up. The area surrounding the both of us was a light blue and there we saw it, a blue pool that had both of our reflections in it. “Where are we Adam?” Taz questioned me as I looked back at him. “I really don’t know, maybe one of my dreams that I had again.” I looked back into the pool then I touched the surface of the water. There were several ripples in the water then our reflections had disappeared!
“Huh? What happened to them?!” I asked stepping back that’s when I felt my spine elongate and a white tail had appeared behind me. It had split at the tip and it looked somewhat of a Floatzel’s tail only white and not curled. “Uhhh Adam there’s a tail on you!” Taz shouted in fear but then I noticed something on his back too! There was a blue tail smaller than mine, but it looked almost like a beaver’s tail.
Both of us screamed in terror of our new tails and then I saw my hands changing. My fingers had merged into 2 sharp, long, black claws while my thumb had stayed and become furry and red. Taz on the other hand, had his hand become somewhat of stubs and furry white. “I don’t have any fingers!” Taz shouted and ran to me. “Be careful! I can slice you into bits of carrots with these claws!”
Near my newly formed claws, more red fur had sprouted and grew until my wrist then more white fur had spread up my arms and covered it. My shirt I was wearing had ripped to shred once some white fur and some red fur had grown too much for my shirt to handle. Then it hit me, some red fur had been shaped in the letter M near my right front side. The only Pokémon that has that is a Zangoose! I couldn’t believe it, “Why am I changing into this?” I thought. More white fur had grown on my legs while my toes had merged into three white claws.
“T-Taz I think I know what I’m becoming.” I said in a shakey and nervous voice. “Y-Yeah same here.” He replied and we both looked at each other. We both looked at each other and one looked like a Zangoose, the other looked like an Oshawott. “This is one of the weirdest dreams.” I said then I felt my ears become pointed and move to the top of my head. I felt them become slightly more sensitive and my left ear become covered in red fur while the other became covered in white. My eyes had become slightly pinkish red and then more white fur had covered my entire face except for part of my left eye. There was some red fur that looked like a V that grew near my eye. Lastly I felt my mouth and nose change. My nose had become a small black dot while my teeth grew slightly sharper and pushed out just a tiny bit.
We both were finished changing then we were knocked out by some fatigue during the transformation.
“Ugh… w-what happened? Taz, Flamey, Nick?” I had looked around and I saw a Typhlosion, a Zangoose, and an Oshawott laying in front of me. “Hey Adam, seems like we’re both pokémon for some reason.” Taz looked at me and I stared back at him. “Don’t worry we’re fine, that’s the main thing right?” Taz smiled at me and then stood up. “Y-Yeah, but where are we?” I asked. “Good you’re finally awake Adam.” Nick had talked to me. “I-I can understand you Nick!” I jumped up and hugged my Zangoose. “Yeah, now we’re all together, and we can finally hear and talk to each other.” Flamey said as he walked to Taz and hugged him. “It’s good to finally hear you buddy.” Taz hugged his Typhlosion. We were finally together, all with each other and we didn’t care where we were. Just so long as we were all with each other…
