"So, Aron, tell me the reason for your visit. I'm sure you wouldn't have made this trip personally if it wasn't important," Red inquired, his eyes focused and intense.

I took a deep breath and met Red's gaze. "Well, I've come here personally to ask for a favor, Mr. Red. I hope you can help me out this time. There's a high chance that the Mt. Silver Sanctuary might soon come under assault, and I would like to ask you to keep an eye out in the coming days. If necessary, intercept and eliminate any unsavory individuals."

As I shared my primary reason for coming to meet Red, his smile faded slightly, and he replied hesitantly, "Aron, you should know that I'll always be grateful for the help the Blackthorn family and you personally have provided. I know I owe you. But I'm not sure if I should take part in human conflicts again. I secluded myself here in the first place to avoid human conflicts."

Understanding his reservations, I continued, "I understand your reasons for avoiding human conflicts. But what I'm afraid of is that the potential threats I'm talking about may have plans to capture the big guy on the main peak and even destroy the sanctuary of the Tyranitars at Mt. Silver. With their strongest Tyranitar, the matriarch, absent, it might be under threat if high-ranked trainers attempt to target it."

As I explained the situation to Red and the urgency of my request, he seemed to consider my words carefully. "Are you sure, Aron? The Moltres on the main peak is something that even true legendary trainers would think twice about provoking. There aren't many trainers alive capable of achieving such a feat. With Blackthorn's Legendary, there should be no need for my help. Please don't tell me that the rumors about your family's Legendary trainer being dead are true."

I could sense genuine concern in Red's voice because he knew how devastating such rumors would be for my family. I shook my head. "It's nothing like that. You're more of an additional precaution. If I'm not mistaken, our family will need as many safeguards as possible to weather the coming storm."

Red sighed, recognizing the gravity of the situation. "So, it's come to that, huh? Well, if they are specifically targeting the Pokémon, then I have no issue providing my support. Who was foolish enough to start a conflict with the Blackthorns?"

I continued, "It's none other than the League and a few other parties, but the lead aggressor is the League."

Red's expression darkened when he heard that the League was targeting the Blackthorn family. The tension in the room grew as we both understood the magnitude of the situation.

"So that's how low the League has fallen, huh?" Red mused with a hint of bitterness. "It was supposed to be my master's greatest achievement. But in the end, it became his greatest shame. Sometimes, I even wonder if what we did back then was right."

There was a deep sense of grief in Red's voice as he reflected on the history and legacy of the Pokémon League.And after a few more moments of reminiscing, he finally replied.

"Well, in that case, I have no issue with helping out. You can rest assured and leave the security and safety of the Pokémon on Mt. Silver to me," Red replied with a renewed sense of confidence.

With an assurance from Red, the burden that had weighed on my shoulders lifted, knowing that his presence would strengthen the forces of the Blackthorn family already stationed in the Silver Ranges. Two True Legendary trainers and several Pseudo-Legendary trainers were preparing for the impending storm. I was now confident that we could weather it with minimal to no damage. However, I needed to remain vigilant for unexpected surprises, which was why I had approached Red for his favor.

Having settled the matter of acquiring Red's help, it was time to fulfill the promise I made to little Claire by helping her catch her first Pokémon.

"Well then, Claire, it's time to catch your first Pokémon. Is there any specific type of Pokémon you'd like as your companion?"

Claire's eyes sparkled with excitement, and she declared, "Yes, big brother, I want a Pokémon that breathes fire, one that can grow big and strong."

With Claire's request in mind, we said our farewells to Red and moved in a direction where many Fire-type Pokémon inhabited the mountain, ready to embark on the adventure of capturing her fiery companion.

As we ventured further into Mt. Silver, Claire's enthusiasm was palpable. She clutched Lance's Dratini in her small arms, her eager eyes scanning the surroundings for her ideal Fire-type Pokémon. Claire was just four years old, and she hadn't been assigned her own Dratini by the family yet. She would have to wait another year or two for her Dratini, a time she couldn't wait for. In the meantime, I made a quick observation on Lance's Dratini.

Grandpa Alfred was on a mission to help Lance capture a powerful Dragon-type Pokémon. They were looking for a high-potential one, which, in our family's terms, meant a Dragon Blue or higher-potential Pokémon. In the meantime, I was determined to help Claire find a Dragon-type or a similar Pokémon of her own, something that would be hers alone.

We continued our ascent on the mountain, and Claire's eyes sparkled with anticipation as she searched for her fiery companion. The journey was challenging but exhilarating. Claire encountered many young and juvenile Pokémon along the way, each of them a potential partner. However, Claire was particular about her choice. She knew that her first Pokémon was a special one, and she wanted it to be perfect. So she kept pushing deeper into Mt. Silver.

As we ventured further, Claire engaged in battles with some of the young Pokémon she encountered. In each battle, her determination shone as brightly as her chosen Fire-type Pokémon's flame. We watched as she skillfully commanded Lance's Dratini, using moves like Dragon Rage, Twister, and Dragon Tail to battle wild Pokémon who crossed her path. Her tiny voice rang out, issuing orders to the Dratini, who listened with great attentiveness, her expressions of delight evident in each victory.

Claire's journey to find her first Pokémon was filled with excitement, anticipation, and the thrill of the unknown. Her unyielding determination and our steadfast support made each encounter with wild Pokémon a memorable experience. And we knew that, sooner or later, she would meet her perfect fiery companion in the heart of Mt. Silver.

With Lance's Dratini in her arms, my Lucario at my side, and Grandpa Alfred's Gardevoir accompanying us, the mature Pokémon inhabiting Mt. Silver presented no hindrance to our quest. They respected the presence of Dragon-type trainers and their young companions on this sacred mountain. We could feel a sense of harmony and mutual understanding in the air as we delved deeper into the mountain.

Claire was unwavering in her pursuit. She knew what she was looking for and refused to settle for anything less. As we continued our journey, she spotted a shiny Charmander, its fiery tail dancing in the mountain breeze. This was it—the Pokémon she had been waiting for. With a resolute expression, Claire faced the shiny Charmander, ready for her next battle.

"Dratini, let's go!" she exclaimed.

The Charmander accepted her challenge, and the battle began. Dratini and Charmander clashed in a fierce but friendly showdown. Fire and water met in a spectacular display of power. Claire expertly directed Dratini to use Dragon Rage, a move that sent spiraling energy waves toward her opponent. The Charmander countered with Ember, creating a beautiful dance of flames and water in the mountain's serene atmosphere.

The battle raged on as Claire demonstrated her skills, commanding Dratini to dodge and counter with Dragon Tail and Twister. The Charmander was a worthy opponent, refusing to yield easily.

After an intense battle, Claire finally managed to wear down the Charmander. With a triumphant Dragon Tail, she captured Charmander, her first Fire-type Pokémon. Her eyes sparkled with excitement and pride as she held her new companion in her arms.

Grandpa Alfred's Gardevoir extended its hand, offering a congratulatory pat to Claire's Dratini, who had performed admirably. Our small but determined trainer had succeeded in her quest. We knew this Charmander would grow to become a powerful Fire-type Pokémon under her guidance.

Upon closer observation, I confirmed that the shiny Charmander Claire had caught was of Dark Green potential. As I watched her cradle her new companion, I knew that asking her to catch a better potential Charmander or a different Pokémon would be out of the question. The bond between a trainer and their Pokémon is a sacred connection, and it cannot be forced or replaced without breaking hearts. I silently made a mental note to help Claire elevate her Charmander's potential to at least Light Indigo after we returned home.

A bond with a Pokémon is a unique and deeply personal connection. It cannot be rushed or artificially engineered. True growth, both for the trainer and the Pokémon, comes from a genuine and sincere relationship. I understood that nurturing the bond between Claire and her Charmander would be a vital part of her growth as a trainer.

My own quest to reunite with my previous companions was motivated by a similar desire. I knew each of their characters and strengths. Reconnecting with them would not only rekindle our deep bond but also allow me to leverage my knowledge to elevate their potential to remarkable heights, ranging from Light Purple to beyond.

As we continued our journey through Mt. Silver, my heart swelled with pride as I watched Claire and her new partner. Together, they had taken the first step in what promised to be an incredible adventure. For Claire, this was the beginning of a lifelong bond, and for me, it was another step toward my ultimate goal.

As Claire celebrated her new bond with the shiny Charmander, her joy was infectious. She was jumping around, hugging her Pokémon, and laughing with pure delight. What she failed to notice, however, was a fully grown Charizard watching the scene unfold from a distance. This Charizard was no ordinary Pokémon; it had reached the esteemed Palladium stage of its evolution.

The adult Charizard observed the interaction between Claire and her Charmander carefully, its wise eyes assessing the young trainer's potential. It refrained from approaching Claire, opting instead to maintain a cautious distance. The reason for its hesitance was evident—the presence of three powerful auras enveloping Claire. Grandpa Alfred's Gardevoir, my Lucario, and my aura combined to create a protective shield around Claire and her new Pokémon. The Charizard could sense that these auras radiated genuine and caring energy.

I recognized the presence of the observant Charizard, and we shared an unspoken understanding. Using my aura, I conveyed a reassuring gesture, letting the Palladium-stage Charizard know that Claire and her Charmander were in good hands. My deep affinity with Pokémon and the purity of our intentions made it easier for the adult Charizard to believe my thoughts.

The Charizard continued to follow us from a distance as we explored Mt. Silver. While Claire and her Charmander faced various challenges, including battling against young Pokémon in the Bronze stage and higher, the other Pokémon around us did not see us as a threat because of my affinity and mellow aura. Instead, they recognized the harmony between humans and Pokémon, reflecting the unity that I sought to promote in the Pokémon world.

On a secluded part of Mt. Silver, a team of about a dozen individuals equipped with combat gear was engaged in transporting numerous sealed boxes. A convoy of half a dozen trucks was employed for this task, and every member of the team exuded an aura of combat experience and readiness. These were no ordinary hikers or explorers; they meant business. Their organization had entrusted them with an important mission.

As they moved with precision and coordination, an identical logo was noticeable on the back of their combat uniforms. It was an emblem that defined their organization and bore a symbol that sent shivers down the spines of those familiar with it. This symbol was none other than the notorious Team Rocket logo.

Unbeknownst to the Team Rocket operatives, an elderly man accompanied by a young boy was stealthily tracking their movements from a distance. The boy, Lance, couldn't contain his curiosity and began firing questions at his grandfather, Alfred, who was accompanying him.

"Grandpa Alfred, who are these people, and what on earth are they carrying in those gigantic boxes? Why are we following them anyway? And what are they doing here on Mt. Silver?" Lance's curiosity got the better of him, and he eagerly sought answers.

But Alfred, in response, transformed from the friendly, grandfatherly figure into something entirely different. There was a shift in his demeanor, and he appeared more like a predator poised to strike its prey. With an air of authority, he addressed Lance.

"Patience, my dear child. These people are not part of our family, and they may harbor ill intentions. Today, I'm going to teach you a crucial lesson. Listen carefully, and follow my instructions without question. Do you understand?" Lance recognized the gravity of the situation and obediently nodded, absorbing his grandfather's words.

The convoy quietly navigated along a forest trail, carefully chosen for its discretion, the same route often used by the Blackthorn family when transporting resources to the major Pokémon colonies inhabiting Mt. Silver. They purposefully avoided any Blackthorn outposts, security stations, or patrol routes. With painstaking precision, the convoy aimed to go undetected, fully aware that in the vast expanse of Mt. Silver, their presence would typically be inconspicuous. It would take prior knowledge or sheer luck for anyone to stumble upon them in such massive and untamed territory.

Fate, however, had other plans. Lance, who had accompanied grandpa Alfred on a quest to find a Dragon-type Pokémon for his team, caught sight of the convoy. He immediately brought it to Alfred's attention. Together, they shadowed the convoy for another hour as it came to a halt near one of the largest Pokémon colonies within Mt. Silver.

Despite the fact that the Blackthorn family maintained periodic security patrols, wild Pokémon didn't always react favorably to human presence. Hence, patrols were often sparse and only dispatched upon explicit orders from higher authorities, making it practically impossible to secure every possible route in such a vast and untamed territory.

The leader of the convoy was a female, discernible from her authoritative voice, as every member was masked with combat gear. Upon the convoy's stop, she began issuing orders to her team, who promptly dispersed to their respective trucks, releasing their Pokémon to aid in handling the numerous sealed boxes. Most of the Pokémon were of the Power type, chosen for their ability to manage heavy loads.

Grandpa Alfred observed that, out of the dozen individuals, nearly all were Elite-level trainers. The two exceptions were the lady in command and the man who efficiently communicated her orders. As the situation unfolded, Alfred promptly alerted the nearest Blackthorn members, who were now mobilizing and would reach the location within twenty minutes. He also informed Aron, who would keep a lookout for any similar developments. Through their communication devices, he gave explicit instructions to his Gardevoir companion to ensure the safety of both Aron and little Claire. Upon Alfred's word, the entire force within Mt. Silver began mobilizing to identify and respond to any similar convoys or intruders within the Silver ranges. The hunt was on.

Dear readers and fans,

I hope you're enjoying this fanfiction journey as much as I am. It's been a labor of love, but I'm at a point where I'm considering how best to invest my time. While this story draws inspiration from an existing world, I've been passionate about building upon it, adding my own creative touches, and sharing it with you.

I want to maintain the essence of what fanfiction stands for: a community of like-minded individuals who come together to appreciate creativity. That's why I've decided to introduce a voluntary way for those who can afford it and believe in the value of my work to support me.

I'm in the process of setting up a Patreon account dedicated solely to donations. It's not about making this a profit-driven endeavor but rather a way for those who find value in my writing to show their appreciation and encouragement.

Your support, in whatever form it comes, will help me continue dedicating time and effort to this project. It's entirely voluntary, and your readership alone is already a fantastic reward.

Thank you for understanding and for being a part of this fanfiction adventure.

Warm regards,
