Before we went to Prof.Treetops lab,Thrash tried to be careful. But knowing how young he was,his curiosity got the best of them and found this wierd platform that had the words, "POKE'PORTER". He didn't know what that means till' Thrash put his poke'mon on the Poke'porter. There was a bright flash, then poof, his poke'mon was gone! "What the?!...My poke'mon! It's gone!" Everyone looked at me as soon as my poke'mon came back attacking everyone. "The first time I got my pokr'mon that happened, maybehe got left alone and is really mad?"

Looking angrily at Ditto then a Thrasher, Dan said,"Keep that glob under control or i'll do it for you", Dan threatened as he pulled Voltorb's ball from his belt.
"Listen kid, I applaud your enthusiasm, but mistakes like that one is going to get people hurt. Honestly I think you are a little too young to venture too far from home. why don't you consider staying here?"
With that, he realized he was getting antsy and ready to go. The thought of walking the branches didn't bother him anymore, not to say it wouldn't bother him once he got out there on them. He just hoped Iris would be in the lead so he'd have a focus point to concentrate on instead of looking down and getting all wigged out.
He looked to Iris as he grabbed a pokeball and said, "what is taking Norman so long. We do really need to get a move on!"
"I'm sorry I won't make that mistak ever again!", he looked down as if upset(which he was), and started pacing. As he was walking back and forth he was thinking of how to talk to Iris, but he stopped and thought he was too young for her and that he would humiliate himself. Then he suddenly blurted out,"I'm in love with...", and stopped himself right there. Iris looked at him wierdly and then looked back. And then Thrash walked away really embaressed.
While the innocent tree top village goes about its daily life, a not so innocent pair visits the peaceful town...
Walking out of the pokecenter, Saja took a quick glance around for the nearest target, sometime small but well stocked, and something with an open exit. Normally in this situation the first target would be the ever ready pokemart, and once again the endless chain of supply stores didn't fail to disappoint.
As she approached the entrance, Saja pulled the Abra flopped about her shoulders into her arms and pointed him at the target.
"You know the drill Ensof, but lets go for some food this time."
Setting the Abra down Saja walked into the store and started to look around. Being just past lunch, everyone was either at home or working and so the store lay mostly barren, save for a single middle aged shop keep. Taking her time in the Pokeball isle, Saja tilted her head towards the keep and started a conversation.
"You know, for a town built in a giant canopy, you sure are lacking 'natural' alternatives to pokeballs. What gives? Where are the Apricorns?"
With a slight chuckly, the store clerk walked over to her and she began to ask fluff questions about the stock of pokeballs the store had. It was now that the abra snuck off behind the counter and began to work. Looking around the stocks he found some snack packs and carefully grabbed them off the lower shelves, making sure that Saja had the man's undevided attention. After filling each paw with the small packages, he started to look for the best place to teleport out of the store... But then he saw them.
The Abra looked into each of his hands, noting them to be full before dropping a fist full of goodies. Up there, way on the top racks, sat the crown jewel of pokemart stock- and Ensof was ready to pluck it from the lofty perch. Or so he though... Sadly, Abra's are only 2 feet tall, and the top rack happened to sit several feet beyond him.Contimplating this situation for a second, the greedy pokemon started to climb the counter... Then the till... Then the shelves... then...
The sound caused both Saja and the Pokemart clerk to turn their heads at the now toppled stack of treats. With the clerks face turned all Saja could do was place her palm upon her face in frustration.
The store clerk looked to Saja whose face was now buried in ehr hands due to the embarrassment of the situation. The shop clerk finally realizing what was going on felt her face flush in rage.
"GO EKANS!" she screamed throwing a pokeball to the ground amidst all of the fallen goods. "Now you will see the power of nature!"
The ekans leeped out at Saja attempting to bind the large girl long enough for the authorities to come to her aid. The ekans fell short though and instead hit something else and bound around it.
ABra started flinching in pain as the ekans squeezed tighter and tighter around the small creature and then abra was gone! disapeared. and the ekans falls to the ground slightly confused as to what happened.
Abra appears on a large shelf and ekans attempts to tackle the small creature once again but before it is to late the ekans runs head first into the wall. and abra appears beside its owner and dissapeared again stopping short of the ekans beside its tail. The ekans turned to bite the small creature who dissapeared once more and the ekans bit itself.
Now weakened ekans fainted and the store clerk dropped her head deffeated. But just than a police officer stepped into the building. Only to find a store clerk in a destroyed building by herself.
The abra teleported Saja and some food from the store outside the building a few yards away and the two started running the length of the tree branch away from town.
As we all walked along Thrash was staring at Iris for the longest time, as if time wasn't there, as if time had stopped. "Well...", he looked around and started wondering,"Where are we?". He kept on and on at Dan the whole time.
"Where are we? Where are we?", and Dan woudn't respond. Then Thrash almost fell off a branch, "I think I know where we are."Thrash said. He got himself up and started along aqain, "Where are we?"
Dan was walking behind Iris, using her head as a focus point for the purpose of staving off his vertigo. The trip wasn't easy, with a little motor mouth too stubborn to stay behind and watch over the lab, running his mouth every minute on the minute. Why he chose him to bother, Dan would never know. Thrasher seemed to shadow him where ever he went. They weren't brothers or any relation for that matter.
"Where are we?....Where are we?....", Thrasher rattled on.
"Shut up. I'm concentrating on what's ahead of me!", snapped Dan.
"Where are we? Where are....whoops!"
Dan spun around just in time to see the little twerp almost take a 10 to 15 yard fall from the somewhat broad branch the group was on, but the young boy straightened out in time to catch himself. As Dan helped the boy up, he face showing his derision, Thrash smiled up at Dan saying,"I think I know where we are."
Unfortunately Dan's quick movements made him forget, only to be reminded once again, where exactly he was. The leaves and branches began to swirl about him and he stumbles backwards and lands on his rump on the branch. In fear he quickly lays down and hugs the branch for all it's worth saying to the troublesome little git,"Yeah, we are entirely too high up in this tree, and if you don't stop fooling around, someone is going down."
Visions of defeating Thrasher's little silly putty friend started to swim through his head. The boy would black out seeing as ditto was his only pokemon and he wind up at a pokecenter back home.
No, violence at this point and for this reason would only prove himself a bully. That's not what he wants.
He began to use Thrasher as a focus point, keeping his eyes locked on the boy's eyes as Dan slowly began to get to his feet.
"Listen, Thrasher, try to be a little more careful. I'm not very good with heights and don't expect me to pull your fat out of the fire again.", Dan said wearily as he slowly turned around to find his previous focus, looking ahead and not down, not ever down, and the group continued on to the town. The trip seemed to take forever, cause Dan really didn't want to be here, in Tree Top, and the anticipation of waiting to get somewhere solid seemed to stretch the journey out even longer.
An old annoyance started up again,"Where are we?....Where are we?...."

Norman Typekin took in some deep breaths. His narcolepsy cannot get the better of him in this situation. If it did, he could very well plummet to the forest floor.
“Why doesn’t anyone make an actual road towards this city?” Norman inquired out loud to no one in particular.
With his heart rate steady, Norman took his first steps onto the canopy branches. (Presuming the branches are not THAT narrow) Norman found that it was not that bad to travel. Sure some balance was required as the branches were by nature cylindrical and uneven, but none the less they were broad enough to hold a full grown man, not to mention the various Pokémon wildlife. So long as he or any of his friends did not step on an extremely damp or mossy spot, the lot should be fine.
“Dan, are you ok?” Norman voiced his concern. He knew Dan for some time, and had even been to a couple of the young performer’s practices. He knew of the poor lad’s acrophobia: his extreme fear of heights. None the less, the tone in Norman’s voice was intended not to be one of any pity, rather just a casual remark of inquiry. He knew that if he was in Dan’s shoes, he would not want people pitying him...
Thrash was walking when he remembered a few minutes ago that when he fell he found both things that these people, Iris and Dan, have:Amnesia and a fear of heights.
He started walking faster, and the more he thought of it the faster he got. Then suddenly he ran into Iris and ran away freaked out.
That's when he really did fall, but luckily he fell on a branch on in Treetop, and breking his fall was a Jigglypuff. It looked just liked the one Norman had, Mimi Tuff, and starteled, the poke'mon ran after Thrash back up the tree."Everyone, a mad Jigglypuff is after me!",Thrash yelled sprinting up the tree.
Suddenly a poke'mon trainer came up and caught the poke'mon. No one knew him but the look on his face looked like he was going to say the words, "I want to battle you!",but instead he yelled up the tree as if on crack yelling, "FINALLY!I DID IT! I GOT UP HERE, YES!!!", then ran up the tree as I started thinking,"If there's sich thing as Poke'drugs then he's been having the stuff with a lot of sugar!"Well that's when we found out we were almost there to the top of the tree.

Thrash fell and fell. Into the seeming darkness. Not knowing Whether the young trainer lived or not the other adventurers kept along there path as no one could do anything to help the poor boy. And not knowing if they would if they could.
Iris walked along the path until she saw the small village of Tree Top. She gasped at the sight of it all. No wonder there had been no ground path to the village. All of the homes were carved into the trunks of the massive trees hundreds of stories up.
The center of the village looked as though multiple branches had grown into one another makeing a large rough platform in which a tall wooded statue of Scyther stood. Thats when they saw her a large female running with a small pokemon in her arms.
Saja ran straight into Iris and Pikachu flew high into the air
"PIKA!" The small electric pokemon screamed as it landed to the ground about to attack the person who invaded its owners personal space.
Stopping for only a second to see what or who she had hit, Saja looked around in a hurry.
"Oh crap oh Crap oh crap! Tell them I started climbing up or something!"
Calling back her abra, She slid between some branches just under them and hooked her knees around one of the larger sections, anchoring herself by wedging her toes on another part of the trees. There she hung up-side down, holding on to her bag straps, hoping that the other trainers wouldn't give her position away...

"Yeah Norman, Im alright, just got a little dizzy. That's All. The more we keep moving the better. Get there quicker, to a safe, sturdy, solid place....", Dan said as he drifted off to a state of trying to focus and concentrate, once again.
"Where are we, where are ......" suddenly silence. sweet precious...... Hey where did he go?
Dan's concern for the little twerp wasn't minor by any stretch of the imagination, but he couldn't take his concentration off of his focus point.
Hopefully, if he fell, that ditto of his can turn into something to break his fall.
Dan's thought was more to justify moving on without the annoyance, though no one else seemed to feel the need to justify continuing on even when one of the group had fallen or inexplicably disappeared.
But if it's not one thing its another, for while trying to keep his concentration on the back of Iris' head, someone, another girl, runs right into Iris almost knocking her back, and breaking Dan's concentration. At which point, he froze in place and closed his eyes, hoping for once to keep his balance.
With his eyes closed, he could only hear "PIKA!"
Oh great, we don't need to be battling up here!
"oh crap, oh crap, oh crap, Please tell them I climbed up!"
Opening one eye to try to regain a focus point, Dan noticed the new girl disappeared as fast as she appeared. Maybe she did climb up, maybe she climbed down, who was to say? Not him, he saw nothing, only heard.
"Whoa, what just happened? It seems every time I let my concentration slip, someone's falling, being run into, and I wind up frozen, scared crapless, or hugging a branch! We really need to get somewhere solid."
Dan wanted to keep moving forward, in fact he almost ran into the back of Iris, coming close to inciting her Pikachu's wrath, so he backed off.
"Hey come on whats the hold up?"
Dan's frustration is becoming apparent, with each second that goes by without moving or answers to his questions. The group he is with has stopped, and he wanted to know why.
All he knows is that it has to do with a girl in a hurry, maybe running from someone, and we are supposed to mislead who ever may be coming this way.
I hope whoever is coming next doesn't have the same tendency try and knock people over. It'd be a shame for two in a small group to fall in the same day, and I don't even have a safety net this time!
Norman Typekin shrugs his shoulders when asked anything by the law enforcement of the town. Something told him that there was more to the girl and her abra then something worth incarceration... call it a hunch. Norman tended to work with these feelings, that’s why he came on this adventure in the first place.
“She and her pokemon started to ascend the trees over there.” Norman said, following along with the girl’s plea.
A few of the police officers threw pokeballs into the air letting out zubats and pidgeotos alike. Then scattered their pokemon amongst the branches while the Officers ran back to the center of the town.
((navigating through the town will be hard with your villianous friend so take that into effect.))
You look around and see no pokemon as most have climbed the trees high looking for Saja and her Abra.
"The coast is clear." Iris states giving an almost scornful look at the crevice where the small girl lay hidden.
