"S.S. Anne is 15 minutes from Vermillion City, Kanto. Please prepare for departure." The captain announced. The S.S. Anne, a ship that only arrived at the port once a year would make it's next stop soon. Trainers from all over the world would board, or leave this ship that stopped in every region. For many, It was an expensive way to get from place to place. For others, a fresh start in another region. Dozens of tough trainers, and weak ones alike were on this ship. Taking the next step toward whatever they were after. Be it badges, an escape, a visit, averyone had a reason to board this ship. What were your reasons, trainer?
"Aaagh.... my stomach.", Jack moaned. It had been 2 days since he had left Hoenn, and he was hungry. However, the food on this ship happened to be way to expensive to even think about buying. He had to save his money for his arrival in Kanto. He couldn't believe that he had so little money leftover from Hoenn. He was also sad that he had to leave his friends behind. Him and the others had accomplished alot in hoenn. The took down the Team of crooks there, and beat some gyms. The helped many people along the way. He hoped he got to exiprience that same adventure again. Maybe this time he would also achieve his goal of reaching the 4, and the champion.
He sat up, and checked for his gear, and pokeballs, before standing, and leaving his room. He walked up to the deck of the ship, and stood near one of the edges, looking down, into the ocean. People were starting to crowd by the nearby exit. He was near the edge of that crowd. He could see many trainers. Many of those trainers had that fire in their eyes. Purpose, courage... he had that fire too. He looked around. Maybe he could talk with one of the nearby trainers while he waited for the ship to dock at the port. Maybe he would even find a friend in some of the passengers.
