This is Quartz.
Quartz lives on a small peninsula called Corna, a quiet, rural place, far from all the excitement. Here Quartz spends his days running and jogging as long as he can, through forests and fields, between the wild but docile Pokémon.
Recently, Quartz has broken his endurance record of running for three hours to three and a half hours. He is still very excited about that.

"Yes!", he exclaims to no one in particular, raising his fists, "I'm the best runner in the world!"

The only response to his claim were the playful squeaks of a few Hoppip playing nearby. Not quite the audience Quartz would like to have.
"How can I show every one my prowess?", he thought to himself, "I want every one to be proud of me."

Organize a trackmeet? Failing that, try steroid abuse.

Other then the steroid thing that is a good idea.

Or participate in one.

I don't think there's a 'snap your fingers' solution to becoming famous about such mundane things as running endurance.
I think you could try finding a pokemon companion to train with, eventually you will be noticed.

Quartz stopped running for a moment to think. The summer sun burned on his head as the Nincada chirped all around him.
Then, it came to him.
"I've got it!", he thought, as he quickly reached for his iDex, "I will enter a trackmeet!"

He connected to the internet and looked up the local trackmeets. The results were nil.
Only in the big cities jogging clubs were present.
However, the iDex inbuild AI presented a different option:
Did you mean Pokémon Dash?


Filled with curiousity, Quartz clicked the link to see what Pokémon Dash was.
The greatest endurance test for trainer and Pokémon!
, the website wrote,
Compete in the race around the world over land, water, sky, mountain and forest! Each category will have a winner and the grand prize will go to the contestant who did best on average! Does your endurance and speed allow you to take up the task? Sign up now!


Quartz feels the excitement well up in him. But he knows he's going to face some serious issues before he can even participate!
None of the selection runs take place in Corna, and what's more, he doesn't even have any Pokémon!
"Dangit!", he thinks to himself, "If only I went along with my friends to become trainers, instead of focusing on my running... Then I could be running with Pokémon right now."

The solution is simple, you must catch a fast pokemon! One that can keep up with you. Ask the pokedex which native pokemon is fast.

No. 277402 ID: 49d6d7

>>33
Not necessarily fast, but one with a good endurance. Because on average, many pokémon are faster than humans!

Never too late to start, where did your friends go when they wanted to become trainers?

But Quartz wasn't discouraged.
"It's never too late!", he thought, and returned the iDex to its main menu.
"iDex! Show me the fastest Pokémon that I can find here!", Quartz said.
The iDex beeped for a moment as its voice module came online.
"Just a moment. Just a moment."
, the iDex replied. Within a few seconds the search was complete.
"Doduo."

A partially animated picture of the two headed bird Pokémon loaded, along with the sound of its cry.
"A bird Pokémon that makes up for its poor flying abilities with its speed, having been recorded to run up to 60 miles per hour. It moves its two heads up and down to balance itself while running. It is said that the two heads communicate with each other through telepathic abilities. It leaves giant footprints, up to four inches deep."

The iDex buzzed again for a moment.
"Doduo is not native to Corna. The only colony present was the result of a lost shipment of eggs. Its evolution, Dodrio, has not yet been recorded in Corna."


This seemed perfect! Though Quartz thought that the Doduo looked rather dorky, he also saw the potential speed in its long strong legs.
The only question was, how would he catch one? Or even get a Pokéball at all?

The iDex suddenly buzzed again.
"Was that all, Quartz?"
, its robotic voice asked.
Quartz nodded with a look into the iDex's lens, which flickered as it focused its image.
"Yeah, that's all. You can go back to sleepmode."
Quartz was about to put the iDex away when it objected.
"Just a moment."

Quartz paused for a moment.
"What is it?"
The iDex's lens flickered again, making Quartz feel just a little uncomfortable. After a moment the calm robotic voice spoke again.
"You still have not named me, Quartz."

Pokeballs aren't really needed, you just need to show the Duduo who is the boss. You must sneak up on one and jump on its back.

Quartz pondered the choices for a moment.
"Haxter!", he suddenly exclaimed, then paused for a moment, realizing he accidentally combined two different names. But the artificial intelligence did not wait for him.
"My name is Haxter. Thank you, Quartz."


Quartz shrugged it off.
"I better find some tracks!"
He took one step forward and stepped in some poop. But right next to it was a large foot print!
"Haxter, is this a Doduo footprint?!", he yelled out.
Haxter did not respond, for it was tucked away into Quartz' beltpouch again.

I've got this odd inkling that one of those bushes over there might not be a bush.
Bust out Haxter and... iunno do a poke-scan or however it works!

I'm not sure ANY of those are bushes.

the bushes have eyes lol

That's it, Quartz. Someone is clearly watching you. Stand up and loudly declare that you are the fastest thing on two legs. Live up to your talents - no silly pokemon is going to beat you in a footrace!
