Secret Pokémon Campaign

Welcome to your Adventure Log!
A blog for your campaign

Every campaign gets an Adventure Log, a blog for your adventures!

While the wiki is great for organizing your campaign world, it’s not the best way to chronicle your adventures. For that purpose, you need a blog!

The Adventure Log will allow you to chronologically order the happenings of your campaign. It serves as the record of what has passed. After each gaming session, come to the Adventure Log and write up what happened. In time, it will grow into a great story!

Best of all, each Adventure Log post is also a wiki page! You can link back and forth with your wiki, characters, and so forth as you wish.

One final tip: Before you jump in and try to write up the entire history for your campaign, take a deep breath. Rather than spending days writing and getting exhausted, I would suggest writing a quick “Story So Far” with only a summary. Then, get back to gaming! Grow your Adventure Log over time, rather than all at once.

Pokémon, I Choose You!
The adventure begins.

After grueling weeks of study under one of Professor James Oak’s research assistants, our heroes David Filtor, Jason Mordon, and Jenni Birch – as well as their acquaintances Maximillian West and Thomas Oak – were finally ready for their final exam to recieve their Pokémon Trainer’s registration card. This exam comprised of an extensive writen portion that tested their knowledge of Pokémon types, where to find them, and proper Pokémon care as well as a “field test” in which the students participated in a simple Pokémon battle.

With all of the sutdents successfully passing their exam, the next day they were invited to Professor Oak’s lab in order to choose their starting Pokémon. David chose Squirtle, Jason picked Bulbasaur, Jenni decided on Charmander, and Thomas and Maximillian chose Pikachu and Eevee respectively. From there, the world of Pokémon was open to the greenhorn trainers.

Like so many before them, Jason, David, and Jenni made the first stop on their journey in Viridian City, after catching a Pokémon or two on Route 1 of course. The young trainers spent the better part of the day moving between Routes 1 and 2 as well as the opening portion of Viridian Forest in search of new and interesting Pokémon. They also made sure to battle some of the other starting trainers who had found themselves in the area.

And so, after a long day full of many battles, the new trainers rested for the night at the Pokémon Center with dreams of victories to come.

Mystical Mount Moon

Having exhausted their pool of new trainers, our young heroes decided to move on from Viridian to Pewter City, leaving the Viridian Gym – and its powerful reputation – for another time. By traveling through Viridian Forest the crew managed to catch quite the batch of Bug-type Pokémon, but the true prizes were David’s new Pikachu as well as Jenni’s Pidgeotto and her acquisition of a Bulbasaur with the help of Jason’s fine cooking.

Once out of Viridian Forest, a two day journey, the party made their way into Pewter City. Famed for its museum, and having seen lights on late at night while coming into town, they decided to visit before continuing on with their Pokémon training. Once inside, Jenni managed to talk the group into a visit with Dr. Grant Hammonds and out of the entrance fee. In their talk with the famed archaeologist, the group found itself tasked with retrieving a Moon Stone from Mount Moon to help with Hammonds research – a request Jenni was eager to accept for her companions.

Mount Moon proved itself to be a more dangerous place than first expected. In addition to attempting to maneuver past clutches of Geodude who had attached themselves to the ceiling of the caves, and were quite protective of their territiory, David found himself in a death-defying chase after a Charmander deep within the cave complex where sulfur vents and extreme heat were poised to end the stalwart trainer. If it weren’t for the hard work of his Squirtle and Pidgey it is likely that Jason and Jenni would not have seen their friend again.

This happened as Jenni and Jason moved further into their mountain, and eventually they came across a Clefairy who appeared to be pounding away at the cave wall. Jenni quickly discovered that the Pokémon was digging for a Moon Stone buried deep into the rock. After retieving the stone, the Clefairy scurried away even deeper into the complex and Jenni quickly followed after it. Jenni and Jason soon found themselves inside of an antechamber where the Clefairy placed the Moonstone into the center of what appeared to be a crater and called forth its bretheren. The Clefairy formed a crescent around the crater that was soon filled by three Clefable and another Clefairy. The final Clefairy jumped into the crater and bowed to the Clefable to recieve a crown made of stone and precious gems. Once crowned, the Clefairy raised the Moon Stone over its head and used its power to evolve. Not to sit idly by during such an amazing occurence, Jenni made sure to use her video camera to film not only the crowning and evolution ceremony but also the party that immediately followed.

David's Notes, Pewter City

This is not a diary, diaries are for girls, these are my notes. I really didn’t want to do this but a great Pokemon Trainer has to know a lot of stuff and i am way behind. So this wiki is to help me organize all of the useful things I learn along the way. It took me a while so i am sort of behind, I will go ahead and pick up in Pewter City, Some really cool stuff happened, in Mount Moon, but you should get Jenni to tell you about that. (I got Jenni to write up a summary of our travels before this, those are the first two posts that are all pretty and written in the third person.) Trust me she will tell you EVERYTHING. So we get back to Pewter City, my party at this time consists of Squirtle, Pidgey, and Charmander. Pewter is known to be a rock gym so I am pretty confident, get this though the gym leader is Dr. Hammonds, the same dude that sent us to Mount Moon. Jason goes to battle him first, Dr. Hammonds uses a Omanyte, Kabuto, and Aerodactyl. The first two being rock, water Jason destroys them with his Bulbasaur, i mean just absolutely wiped the floor with them it was kinda sad. I go up next and i’m not near as excited as I was, the water type is cancels out any advantage my Squirtle had. After a hard battle i finally pull it out with my Pidgey’s speed pulling it out for me against the Aerodactyl. Jason made us an insane cake after, and Dr. Hammonds promised to get in touch with a friend of his regadring a thunderstone for my Pikachu.

David's Notes, Days of the Vulpix

Ok so its been a crazy day. After leaving Pewter city we headed to Cerulean city by way of Mount Moon and Route 4. Mount Moon was fairly easy to get through, just follow the trail of footprints. Right at the end Jason found a group of Paras, he had been wanting on so he and Jenni both caught one. These two catch the weirdest Pokemon. I’m not sure why anyone would ever want a Paras. Nothing else happens till we reach Cerulean, where Nurse Joy tells us that there are feral Vulpix in the city. I’ve always wanted a Vulpix. So Jenni and I run around town for several hours hunting them down. At some point we get separated, I think she got lost, I swear that girl has no sense of direction. So I’m running around down back alleys looking for Vulpix, when these two guys jump out and start threatening me, stupid little punks didnt know who the were dealing with, Wartortle and Pikachu sent them packing real quick though, I hope i didn’t kill the one dude. I go to the Pokemon center after this because my Pokemon got poisoned in the fight, boy maybe i should have chased down that other fucker. Anyway I run into Jenni and she tells me she had found the Vulpix! So i follow her directions and head to an old abandoned building and there is an entire family. When we get there we meet this tall thin woman, I have no idea what she was doing there but she was smoking, in more ways than one. I’m telling you 10 out of 10. Anyway she kind of laughs at us and is on her way. So i crawl through a little whole in the walland attempt to befriend the Vulpix, with lots of help from Jenni. That girl knows her stuff. It takes about a week and lots of Jasons food but eventually we catch the entire family, sending the mother and most of the pups to professor birch to live in a much better environment. Jenni taped the whole thing, here is the link to the tape- Vulpix Family. I catch the dad, and Jenni catches one of the little babes. It was a hell of a last couple of days but hey I’m almost at a full party.

David's Notes, Cerulean City

So, the lady we met when trying to help the Vulpix turned out to be Dalia Charge, the Cerulean Gym leader and supermodel extraordinaire. She is alright though, nowhere near as stuck up as she could be. In her gym battles she uses a Raichu and a Jolteon. Took me two tries to beat her because of my party’s weakness to electric moves. Jason, however, had no problems at all – his Ivysaur defeating the gym leader single handedly. Jenni also won the Normal Ribbon for the local Pokemon contest in the cute division with her Clefairy. Clefairy really shined during the battle part of the contest, competing against Dalia’s sister Acie’s pikachu.

David's Notes, Tauros

After Dalia defeated me I knew I needed to finish rounding out my party before challenging her again, so I took a ride down route 5 to meet a man whom Professor Oak put me in touch with named Rancher Rick. He is a Tauros breeder, and I have always wanted a Tauros. However I was not exactly loaded with cash, only having two thousand dollars on me. He was an incredibly nice guy and agreed to battle me for one of the more rambunctious youngsters in his herd. If I won I get it for two thousand, if I lost I got an egg for two thousand. I sent out my pidgey against his Tauros. My pidgey’s speed was able to defeat the rancher, and with that I had a full party.

David's Notes, Power Plant

After obtaining my Tauros I went back to the Cerulean Gym, and re challenged Dalia. The fight was much less difficult this time and I got my badge. Jenni, Jason and I decided to go out after that; we went to a local club and danced till about 2. Right before we left though there was a power surge and the lights burst. I asked Dalia what it was all about and she said it was due to some wild pokemon fighting at the local powerplant. We resolved to join Dalia and attempt to clear out the wild Pokemon living in the powerplant. The next day we wake up bright and early to go start on it, and there is a random guy in our room at the Pokemon center, turns out he is Lucas Drale, the guy bringing me my thunderstone. I give it to my Pikachu, and it evolves into a Raichu! It was super exciting. Lucas decides to join us on our mission to the powerplant. After meeting Dalia at the gym, we all load up in a few jeeps and head out. When we get there it begins to rain, so we head in, and walk right into a huge turf war, electric vs poison. It takes us several hours, but we manage to get the leaders of the groups, a Muk, and Electabuzz, Jason catches both of them since they are extremely strong and I don’t have room for them in my party. As we are leaving we spot a Zapdos on the top of the building! Jenni flipped it, we had to physically drag her away! As soon as our Pokemon were healed up, Jenni and I rushed off, with Jason in hot pursuit. She wanted to catch the Zapdos, and I to train. After a crazy battle Jenni caught the Zapdos! A Zapdos it’s incredible, and Jason got all of it on tape!

David's Notes, Pokemon Tech

After we left Cerulean we headed down Route 5 towards Vermillion City. There we hope to obtain our third badges and second ribbon respectively. We were a day and a half out of Cerulean, getting close to Vermillion when we come upon a group of students walking out of the woods, led by a Miss Dubeau. We introduced ourselves as traveling trainers, and she introduced her group as a class from the local Pokemon Technical School. At Pokemon Technical School, students learn to become Trainers in a safe and structured environment. The group we met was a class of underclassmen, however when you graduate you are supposedly ready to go straight to the Indigo League. They take training here instead of battling gym leaders and collecting badges. Miss Dubeau, kindly invited us to accompany her back to the school and see how things were run there. Upon arriving we were given rooms for the night and allowed use of the recreational facilities. Jason went to the kitchen to prepare a meal, Jenni went show her tapes of the Zapdos and Clefable Ritual to the in house researchers, and I went to the soccer field where i had heard a battle can be found for the willing. After a while a girl named Serena Rain came up to me, accepting my challenge to battle. She was rather hostile, wanting nothing more than to embarrass me and send me on my way. We had a three Pokemon Battle, which I was able to defeat her in. If you are interested in the battle, Jenni recorded itDavid FiltorvsSerena Rain. The Pokemon Tech students seem to extremely proficient in the technical side of battling, what they lack is creativity and heart. Tomorrow I believe Jenni, Jason, and I are going to help the staff with some sort of demonstration then we will be on our way to Vermillion.

David's Notes, Vermillion City

The next day at Pokemon Tech Jenni, Jason, and I had battles against different members of the school to show the differences in battling of badge trainers vs. Pokemon Tech trainers. Jenni showed the girls how Pokemon Contests were structured, and used Clefairy to show them examples of each of the different rounds. After that Jason battled a guy by the name of Alder, they went slow and analyzed each move for the audience. Not exactly super exciting, but it was educational. I had the day before warned Mrs. Dubeau that my party would not tolerate this form of battle, so they paired me up with a guy by the name of Liam Feint. Liam is one of the schools premier students, and is an extremely gifted trainer . He and I had a full party battle in front of the entire school. The battle was epic, with my charmander doing amazingly well, I would definitely recommend watching it, for a link to the battle click here. After this battle we spent a few hours at the school then headed on our way; we have badges and ribbons to obtain! Very little of interest happened in Vermillion City. The first day their, Jenni won her contest ribbon. She did it quite handily as well, no one else came close. The next day Jason and I went to the Gym to get our badges. The Gym leader of Vermillion is a guy named Brody, who specializes in water type pokemon. Both Jason and I won our battles, if you are interested in an analysis of how to battle Brody, the earlier link should be of some use. After defeating the gym, my friends and I, decided to track down Thomas Oak, who we new was in the city. Turns out he was staying in an extremely expensive hotel. Somehow he had scored four tickets to the S.S. Anne. He said he would battle each of us for them. Jason, and I both fought him for our tickets and won, Jenni got hers on credit.
