I was a simple kid, visiting a local game shop to buy Pokemon Blue. I had already playeds every Pokemon game, except for the very original. (Of course, I hadn't played remakes like Heartgold, Leafgreen, etc.) The cashier sat lazily behind the counter, resting his feet on the counter and lounging in his chair. I entered timidly.
"G-good morning sir..."
He looked up with a stone cold stare.
"Whaddya want?"
I sighed and looked around . No point in talking with a cranky ol' buzzum.
I searched around for the shelf with Pokemon. All the games were listed in alphabetical order, which really helped me find Blue in no time. I bought the game and head home, filled with anticipation. I'd finally be able to say I've played (and probably beaten) every Pokemon game!
Once I got home, I rushed upstairs to my room, locking the door behind me. I looked around for my special edition Pikachu Gameboy, put the cartridge in the game slot, saw the familiar Gameboy startup logo, and smiled. Once the startup screen booted up however, that's when my smile faded quickly. There was already a save file, despite the cartridge being new and untouched. Typical default name Blue with all badges, but the playtime. 06:66. I brushed it off and decided to check out the file, in both idiocy and curiousity. Now I really wish I hadn't touched that damned file. The file started in Lavender Town, in front of the Pokemon tower. However, the usual theme was different. It sounded like it was in reverse. As if the theme wasn't disturbing enough already... I noticed another thing. The town was named "WhO aRe YoU?!".
"This is ridiculous!"
I said lightly to myself.
"What type of joke is this..."
Again, I brushed it off and looked at the looked at the player's Pokemon. Only a Mew by the name of FrIeNd. Same alternating capitals as the town. I checked his moves. It only knew Curse, Grudge, and Destiny Bond, all with 99PP. The fourth move was blank. I knew something was up, but I decided to brush it off yet again stubbornly. I looked through the menus, looking for his sprite. My curiousity was thrown out the door when I saw the sprite. A mangled, bloody Mew. A chunk of his head missing, eye hanging out, entrails spilled everywhere, and yet having a demonic smile. I dropped my Gameboy in shock. A message box appeared on my GBA.
Ow. ThAt HuRt...PiCk Me Up AnD dOn'T dO tHaT aGaIn!
I looked at my Gameboy silently.
Is ThErE sOmEtHiNg WrOnG?! hUrRy AnD pIcK mE uP!
"What? No! I'm not picking you up!"
The message box didn't change. The same message.
"No! No, no, no, no!"
The message box changed to a '...' for a few, then changed again.
ArE yOu ScArEd?
I remained silent.
PiCk Me Up. NoW.
I took a deep breath.
"For the last time, NO!"
