Gamer Kage: Begin


Chapter 4: A writer and fighter

I sighed as finished The Wandering Samurai, the first book of a trilogy. It was nothing like Samurai Jack, in fact it was a little boring...okay I take that back, it was very boring. I can write better than this!

It was still night time, I had finished it so quickly it wasn’t even funny. There was no jokes, no drama, just one guy going on and on about honour and shit like that. Okay yes, his wife was dead, that was sad, but other than that there was nothing relatable about the guy!

I sighed, I swear I can do a much better job than this author! No wonder Jiraiya's smut is the most popular series in this world, compared to that everything else is crap!

Ping!

Quest Alert!

Write a story and get someone to read it!

Rewards:

+300 EXP

Failure:

Be stuck with lame books

Do you accept?

Y/N?

I blinked, ‘you have got to be joking.’ But no, it was right there, a quest to write a story, my very own book. Was I a writer in my previous life? Hm, I don’t know but….it seemed like something I would do.

I remember stories from my old life, Batman, Superman, Avengers, Powerpuff girls, you know, the usual. Maybe….I could write those stories as my own! I would have to make some modification to suite the ninja world but...yes, I can do it!

Would it be plagiarism? Yes, most definitely, but if I can get my stories published, then I can fucking make money! Maybe move out of this place! Yes, I can do this!

I immediately pressed yes accepting the quest. I quickly made a mental list of what i need to do to write a story. First of all I need to practise Kanji as they use that to write books. I need a blank book and a pen, both will be easy to get. But the kanji...hm, well, two birds, one stone.

That morning I went into the library and returns all the books I took. I then searched around, looking for books teaching kanji. I found three.

I quickly checked out all three books and one on handwriting. Misa was curious why I needed this, I just told her I needed to improve my handwriting. Which was true.

I finished washing dishes and got to class, sitting with Naruto as we listened to Iruka teach everyone math. I finished that day’s problems and took out the kanji book, taking a pen to my note I began to practise.

I practised during lunch and even in other classes. Naruto asked me why I wanted to do this but I just told him it’s because I wanted to get better handwriting.

The last class of the day for us was physical training, we had to run twenty laps and do other exercises, such as pull ups and push ups. This worked out well for me;

Ping!

You gained +1 VIT!

VIT- 9

Ping!

You have gained +2 DEX!

DEX- 4

Apparently pull ups and push ups counts as exercises dealing with dexterity. On another note, I really need to work harder on my DEX, it’s really low. Disturbance style involves a lot of movement, the more flexible I am the more effective it can be.

After classes I told Naruto I needed to do my kanjis so we parted ways. I promised we could play tomorrow. I went back to my room and practised with such focus that the matron herself had come and remind me to eat dinner.

Her REP score had gone upto 5 now, guess she finally began to like me after I began to wash the dishes regularly. Either way it was nice to not be hated.

My eavesdropping skill leveled up;

  • Easdropping, Lv- 8 (3%)

Your ability to listen in someone else’s conversation without them being aware of it. This is a very important skill for a ninja to possess for information gathering.

Range: 17 feet (100% accuracy)

-10% accuracy for every additional feet

That was nice. I finished my dinner and washed the dishes before going back to my room and continuing my work. But as it grew darker I realised something, tonight was a New moon, meaning I would have no light to practise under! Never mind writing, I can barely even see my own hands!

But just as I was about to throw in the towel Ksume, the matron, walked in with a lite candle. She didn’t say a word to me, instead she placed the candle in my room and left, closing the door behind her.

I blinked, ‘did she...did she just do something nice for me?’ I really couldn’t believe it...maybe I was a bit of a dick to her….whatever, she hates Naruto because of the fox, she’s not a saint, but at last she isn’t a bad person.

I spent that entire night working on my writing, while at the same time practising the leaf concentration exercise, by morning I leveled that up by a level, which hasn’t happened in some time;

  • Leaf concentration exercise, Lv- 9 (12%)

By keeping a leaf stuck on your forehead thanks to chakara you now only help with your chakra control exercise but also improve your concentration.

Uses: 15 CP per minute

Leaves to hold up- 2

+1 INT while active

+1 CC permanent bonus per level

CC- 16

So far my kanji wasn’t...well excellent, but it was decent enough. I wrote for a bit longer before I had to go for breakfast and do my normal morning routine.

After school that day I let Naruto decided what we should do. Surprisingly he wanted to practise throwing my kunai in the training yard.

Thud!

Ping!

Your skill has leveled up!

  • Kunai techniques, Lv- 4 (10%)

Your ability to handle a kunai accurately.

Aquaracy- 25%

Bonus- 2% to DMG

I smiled as I swiped the box away, walk to the target and removed my kunai. I tossed it to Naruto who caught before aiming and throwing it at the target as well, this time hitting the third outer circle.

I whistled, “not bad,” Naruto took out the kunai and tossed it to me. I took at and threw it, it landed in the fourth circle, I clicked me teeth, “damn it.”

“Relax Yami, you can’t be amazing at everything,” Naruto chuckled as he caught the kunai, aimed and threw it at the target.

I whistled, “nice shot,” it had hit the second circle. He took it out and threw it to me. I aimed and threw it with all my might, hitting bullseyes, “heck yeah!”

Naruto snorted, “pure luck,” he caught the kunai and threw it, it didn’t even hit the target, “god damn it!”

I chuckled, “you were saying!”

“Shut your mouth Yami! You cheated!”

“Oh? And how did I do that?”

“I don’t know you just did!”

“Oh please, just admit it that you suck.”

“I can do anything you can do!”

“But I can do it better than you,” I winked.

Naruto blinked, “what does that...hey!”

I chuckled, “please Naruto don’t feel bad, it’s just-”

Thud thud thud!

Naruto and I turned to see three more kunais sticking out of the bull’s eye of target we were using. We followed the line of impact and found Sasuke standing behind us quite a distance away.

“Hey teme! We were using that!” Naruto cried out.

Sasuke ignored him, walking up to the target and removing the kunais tossing me mine. He looked at me, “I want a rematch.”

I blinked, “ah, well-”

Ping!

Quest alert!

Have a rematch with Sasuke!

Rewards:

+50 EXP

Fauiler:

Possible broken bone

Do you accept?

Y/N?

I blinked, ‘with this I can level up! And if I do my chakra control will finally go up by 2% for every 10 CC I have, wait...I have 16 right now, if I leave it up to 20….’ I opened my my menu and put 4 stat points into CC making it 20!

CC- 20

I closed the menu and smiled, “you’re on!” I hit yes and followed him to the taijutsu ring. I looked around, finding no one else there right now to stop us. Sasuke and I stepped into the ring with Naruto as the referee, again.

I made the seal of confrontation, snorting Sasuke did the same. “Begin!” Naruto called out.

Sasuke made the first move, he charged with a kick to my gut. I side stepped bringing my knee up to his head. He ducked before sending a swift kick at my shin I couldn’t block. I brought my hand down like a hammer on his head, making him grunt in pain, he rolled backwards before getting up, putting his hands up in defence.

-1 HP

Damn, guess that kick did take some damage. I leaped forward, bring a leg down over head, he jumped aside and tapped my leg away before punching my back, grabbing an arm and twisting.

“AGH!” I cried out as he pushed me to my feet.

“Surrender!” Sasuke ordered as he twisted my arm.

“Bite me!” I yelled, twisting around to kick Sasuke in the leg. The boy tripped and feel, but his grip on my arm was too strong, so he pulled my arm down with him, causing it to-

CRACK!

“ARGH!” I felt the pain for a moment before it suddenly disappeared. I’m assuming Gamer's body is to thank for this.

-20 HP!

Ping!

You have a disabled arm! Recovery time: 3 days!

I blinked, ‘what?!’ I grew angry, I turned around and saw Sasuke looking in horror at what he had done. I growled at him, I threw myself at him knocking him down, “you bastard!” I punched his jaw with my left hand, holding my right back in pain.

“S-should I stop?” Naruto asked.

“No!” I yelled back.

Sasuke kicked me off, getting on his feet, I swept his leg making him hit the ground once more. He tried to get up again, but this time I was ready as I gave him a low angled kick that connected with his gut and lifted into the air.

Sasuke landed on his feet as I got on mine. I held my arm close to my chest and sent a kick swinging at his head. He ducked under it swinging his arm at me. I leaned away but Sasuke expected that. He sweeped my leg out from under me, making me hit the ground on my broken arm.

I didn’t feel the pain, but;

-10 HP

I didn’t have much energy left, or much stamina;

SP- 10/25

I need to fucking win this already. Sasuke charged with a kick to my body, I rolled away before pushing up on one arm and sending a backwards kick that connected with his jaw. I spun around kicking his stomach pushing him further back.

Before he could recover I was one him with a punch right to the face that set him back two paces, and out of the white circle.

“Yami wins!” Naruto cried out as he grabbed Sasuke who was about to lunge at me. Sasuke started to beat up on Naruto who kept yelling, “Yami wins teme! You have to stop!”

My health bar became full when I leveled up, along with giving me five more stat points. But most importantly it also healed my broken arm!

Sasuke growled, “get off me!”

“No way! I’m going to kick your ass for breaking his arm!” Naruto cried out as he began to punch Sasuke back.

“Naruto enough!” I grabbed him with my now healed arm, I guess leveling up puts me back at 100%, “I’m fine! See!” I waved my hand at them both.

Sasuke and Naruto stopped struggling, looking at my hand in surprise. “B-but how? I swore I heard it crack!” Naruto cried out.

I shrugged, “it just sounded bad, I promise I’m fine, now stop fighting!”

Sasuke grunted as Naruto let him go. He got back on his feet and glared at me, “I will defeat you.”

I shrugged, “maybe, but until then,” I extended my fingers in the seal of reconciliation. Sasuke grunted as he did the same before walking away without another word.

Naruto snorted, “I hate that guy,” he turned to me and my arm, “does it really not hurt?”

I nodded and waved my hand, “yup, see.”

Naruto nodded, “huh….cool.”

I shrugged, “anyway, come on, let’s go to Ichiraku’s I’m buying!”

Naruto jumped, “alright! Let’s eat!”

“But not too much blonde brat! I’m not made of money you got that!” I snapped.

“Yeah yeah don’t worry about it,” Naruto grinned, “what’s the special occasion anyway?”

I grinned, “kicking Sasuke’s ass,” that brought a smile to Naruto’s face.

We had a very nice meal, I was a 100 ryo poorer, but it was so worth it. This was my first level up! It deserve to be celebrated!

I now had the skills, a weapon, jutsu and I always had my brains. I was ready for my first dungeon….damn, how am I supposed to enter it? Maybe I should sneak out at night...yeah, that makes sense.

So I went to the orphanage that night, eavesdropped, washed dishes and went into my room for the night. Once there I decided it was time to get ready. Now that my CC was 20, I could finally learn that genjutsu!

So I took out the Demonic Illusion: Hell Viewing jutsu scroll from my inventory;

Ping!

You have obtained a skill scroll containing Demonic Illusion: Hell Viewing jutsu, would you like to learn it?

Y/N?

I pressed yes as the scroll disappeared and entered my head.

Ping!

You have learnt a new skill!

Demonic Illusion: Hell Viewing jutsu, D rank

Chakra is pushed into the victim's channels and forces them to see what they know is their worst fear. You have no control over this illusion.

CP cost- 10 CP

5% chance of breaking free per level

Okay, this wasn’t that bad. This mean that anyone a level stronger than em only had a 5% chance of breaking out of the illusion. If someone is level 40 or something I can forget about it, but then again they would most likely be a chunin and a D rank like this won’t be effective anyway.

I spent a few moments looking through all my skills, detailing them all. I waited until the gates closed to make my move.

Nearly a month I spent here, I memorised the guard's watch pattern. He spent five minutes at the main gate, three minutes whistling like an idiot before going back inside or for a round around the place. That’s when I strike.

I left my room and tiptoed around the dark halls. I was about to reach the front door when;

Ping!

Your skill has leveled up!

Honestly, this was so not the time! I grumbled as I pushed to notification away and walked out into the cold night air. The gaurd was going for his rounds. I looked around and spotted a tree that grew along the wall that had a branch going over the wall onto the otherside.

I quickly climbed up the tree, it was a little difficult, but I managed to make it all the up, just in time to see the gaurd come back around. I stopped immediately and kept it the shadows, praying he wouldn’t spot me. He was just a civilian, not a ninja, so I should be fine...right?

And did his normal routine, five minutes by the gate, three minutes whistling like an idiot before he went back on his rounds. I smiled, perfect.

Ping!

  • Stealth, Lv- 3 (80%)

Chances of not getting spotted- 9%

For stronger opponents, -2% for each level they surpass you

Are you kidding me?! This just leveled up! How?! How?! GRRR! I hate this game mechanics!

I got onto the branch that went over the wall and slowly crawled across. I stopped when I was over the wall and looked down, there were creepers growing along the stone wall, I slowly lowered myself and climbed down them, managing to land safely on the other side.

I grinned in triumph. I quickly ran into the streets, sticking to alleyways and dark corner, an eight year old out alone in the night? People will definitely ask questions.

I reached the park and once again had to climb over a wall. This time though I managed to climb over the gate that was decorated in such a way I could use it as footholds to climb up.

I ran to the fire statue with the blue konoha leaf and immediately touched it;

You have discovered a natural dungeon! Would you like to go inside?

Y/N

Dungeon, Lv- 1

I sighed, this was it, the big one. I opened my inventory and took out my armour, the forearm guards;

Forearm bands, D rank

Made out of metal and leather there forearm bands can protect you from the most basic of attacks.

Durability- 20/20

I also took out my kunai and armed myself, hopefully this would be enough. I pressed yes and suddenly there was a flash of light as the entire park disappeared before my eyes.

I found myself now in a large flat land filled with forest all around, it looked very much like a giant training area.

Ping!

Defeat all the enemies to progress!

Wow, super helpful. I looked around, I was too open, I needed cover. I ran to the trees and crouched in the bushes and waited, listening, waiting for the enemy to show itself. And around the ten minute mark, when I was really starting to get irritated, they did.

It was a...rat?A fucking rat?! Seriously?!

But I realised soon that the rat wasn’t normal, it’s fur was purple and it’s iris were red with four thick whiskers on it’s cheek. It had large white teeth that looked as big as my finger, plus the way it moved across the field told me it was fast, very very fast.  Quickly observed it to determin what I was dealing with here;

Ratata

The rat pokemon, Rattata is cautious in the extreme. Even while it is asleep, it constantly listens by moving its ears around. It is not picky about where it lives—it will make its nest anywhere. It’s speciality is jumping and is know to be very quick on it’s feet.

EXP gained by killing: 10 EXP

I read the description. Okay,...what the fuck was going on?!

It’s a fucking pokemon! A god damn pokemon! I had to fight a fucking pokemon?! FUCK ME! FUCK!

My eyes winded at the implications. Could I catch one? But I didn’t have any pokeballs...so maybe no. But still, pokemon! Does that mean I’ll find them in the wild? Could I….could I find a Pikachu?! FUCK ME! I WANT A FUCKING PIKACHU!

I began to calm myself down, first thing’s first, I need to kill this thing...damn, here I am killing a pokemon, the things that I think I love….damn amnesia sucks!

Okay, so it’s fast, not that smart and lucky. Okay, it doesn’t have any chakra...bingo! I can just use genjutsu, stun it and then….wait a minute. I looked down at my kunai, using the genjutsu now would use up all my chakra, so instead let’s see if I can kill it with this.

I tracked the wind, I was down wind, perfect. I took out a rag and polished and used it to maintain my kunai. It gained the 8% bonus making the DMG go from 5 to….5.4….I’m so not ready for this!

It was too late now. I focused, aimed my kunai at the rattata in the field, drew back my arm and waited.

The pokemon moved over to another patch of grass and began to munch on the blades of grass. Now!

I threw the kunai with all my might right at it. The blade flew straight and true, landing in the neck of the rattata, digging itself till the hilt.

Ping!

You gained a critical strike! DMG is multiplied by 5!

Thanks to stealth, your critical strike is doubled!

SP- 45/50

I grinned at the notifications, the stamina cost was a little high, but everything else went just as planned! I quickly looked around, no other pokemons saw that, but they might smell the blood and come soon...maybe...was that how this worked? Either way I quickly ran out of the bushes and approached the pokemon.

Slowly the animal disappeared before my very eyes, turning into golden dust leaving my kunai behind, along with it’s skinned fur and one of it’s teeth.

I blinked, whatever, it’s gaming logic. I grabbed all the items and ran back to my hiding spot. I first looked at the horn;

Fang, E class item

A fang from a Rattata. Sharp as hell.

DMG: 2

And then the fur;

Fur, E class item

The fur from a Rattata. You can treat this to create leather.

Okay, not exactly legendary loot, but hey, at least I can use the fang as another weapon….somewhat. I sighed, it wasn’t even shaped right I can’t hold it without it slipping! Hm, maybe..

I spent the next five minutes waiting for my next victim and using my kunai to sharpen the fang while shaping its bottom to allow me to grip it more easily. When I was done I had a much easier to use weapon on hand. And just in time too.

This time three Rattatas came out of the woods, they moved around, I stiffened when they arrived at the spot I killed the first one, but they passed over it like nothing happened.

I took out my kunai and newly acquired fang. I took aim and threw them both. The kunai sailed true, hitting a Rattata in the had this time;

Ping!

You gained a critical strike! DMG is multiplied by 5!

Thanks to stealth, your critical strike is doubled!

- 55 HP!

But the fang...not so much. It didn’t even touch the other pokemon. Now the two living Rattatas turned to me, their eyes narrowed. I gulped as they charged to me, their tiny feet taking them across the field in seconds.

“Rattata!” they cried out.

I quickly climbed the tree behind me and got onto the first branch just as a rattata launched itself from the bushes. It came flying through and began to chew into the truck on the tree, focused on bringing it down.

I grinned, this was my chance! I dropped down, putting my full weight down and put my legs down hard on the pokemon’s neck.

Crack!

The pokemon’s neck turned the wrong way

Ping!

You gained a critical strike! DMG is multiplied by 5!

Disturbance style user- 7+2+ 4= 13 X 5 = 65 DMG!

SP- 40/50

Why did I even bother with a kunai? My fists seem to do more damage!

“Rattata!” I heard a cry as I saw the last rat leap out of the bushes, moving right towards my head.

On instinct I pulled my hands next to block my face. The rat closed its jaw around my forearm protectors. Immediately I shook my hand, throwing it across the clearing, it landed and rolled on the ground. I reached down, the Rattata I killed had dissolved leaving a fang behind. I pulled grabbed it and brought it down on the Rattata’s body.

Ping!

You gained a critical strike! DMG is multiplied by 5!

- 10 HP!

“Skree!” the pokemon cried. I threw away the now broken fang and brought my fists down on it, hitting it in the head;

Ping!

You gained a critical strike! DMG is multiplied by 5!

Disturbance style user- 7+2+ 4= 13 X 5 = 65 DMG!

SP- 35/50

Now it’s dead. I panted, damn that was difficult. Oh yeah, now I know why I like using a kunai, because there's less chances of me getting torn apart! Damn it! I should have just used my genjutsu! But nooo I had to be a badass didn’t I?

I found two fangs and three fur coats. Surprisingly the last rat  I killed dropped off a foot;

Rattata’s foot, C class item

Grants the holder luck.

Grants +5 LUC

I have to say, not bad. Not bad at all. I put the foot in my pocket and got back my kunai. I figured I can’t throw the fangs, but I can stab things with them. I sharpened the other fangs as well, so now armed with three sharp fangs and one kunai I walked into the forest.

I kept to the trees, always sneaking around, making sure an enemy doesn’t spot me first. I walked from branch to branch, making sure to only step on one’s which were stable enough for me to walk on.

And quickly I happened upon trouble as I found two white cats with gold coins on their heads. I immediately recognized them as Meowths!;

Meowth

Meowth withdraws its sharp claws into its paws to slinkily sneak about without making any incriminating footsteps. For some reason, this Pokémon loves shiny coins that glitter with light.

EXP gained by killing: 50 EXP

Oh this is too good! If I can get those coins on their heads...I can be rich! Rich I say! I quickly climbed a tree and saw in the branches waiting for the perfect chance to strike.

I looked down at the cat pokemons and saw them moving away from me deeper into the forest. Curious I carefully followed them, watching my step as to not make any sound to alert them.

Ping!

Your skill has leveled up!

  • Stealth, Lv- 4 (30%)

Chances of not getting spotted- 10%

Hm, not bad. I closed the notification and slowly followed the cats. They came upon a water source in the forest, a small pond with no other animals nearby. The looked around for a bit before lowering their heads into the water and lapping it up.

Hm, curious, guess pokemon acted like animals too if one thought about it. But more importantly other than my observations, I realised this was the perfect time to strike.

I had a chance, I knew I did. The trees here had long stretching branch, kind of like in Assassin’s Creed Black Flag where Edward can travel through an entire forest without having to set foot on the ground.

I had a chance, there was branch that extended directly over where the two cats were. I took out my kunai in one hand and a sharpened fang in another. I needed to time this correctly.

I crawled over and stood directly over them. I bent into a crouch, they didn’t notice me so far, good, either my newly acquired luck is holding out, or my stealth skill is getting better.

I took a deep breath and let it out. First things first, I made two hand signs that I knew I had to make for the genjutsu I was going to perform.

I could only do this once, I may have 50 CP now, but 24% of that is still only 12 CP, just enough for using my genjutsu once. I went through two hand sings almost like it was natural, I felt my chakra come pouring out, latching forward to the Meowth to my left.

-10 CP!

“Mewoth?” the kitty called out as suddenly it began look look around spastically. I watched as it turned to it’s partner and roared, leaping to it and tearing at him with his claws.

I watched in amazement as the two cats began to fight each other, the first one reacted violently from the illusion I casted while the second one now thought the first one was trying to kill it.

I watched the one I casted the genjutsu on close its claws over the other’ throat, tearing it off in one pull. It then began to look around, still frightened, slashing it’s claws like a mad man, striking at the hellish vision it saw.

I waited and watched, curious to see what it would do. I watched as it moved like it was drunk before slumping to the ground, passed out.

I smirked, now was my chance. I leaped forward, arms coming down with all my force. The kunai and fang and came down hard into the napes of it’s neck.

Ping!

You gained a critical strike! DMG is multiplied by 5!

Thanks to stealth, your critical strike is doubled!

- 55 HP!

That came from the the kunai;

Ping!

You gained a critical strike! DMG is multiplied by 5!

Thanks to stealth, your critical strike is doubled!

- 20 HP!

That came from the horn. I needed to move, I let go of the sharpened fang and pulled out the kunai letting blood splatter everywhere.

“GR!” the Meowth woke up, yelling in pain as it tried to move it’s head but unable to see me. I slipped into the Disturbance style, leaping over the cat, landing on it’s other side and plugging the kunai into it’s throat repeatedly over and over again.

Ping!

You gained a critical strike! DMG is multiplied by 5!

The pokemon’s health bar went down to 0. I then looked up at the other one to see by chance it was still alive, but no, the first one did it’s job killing it’s friend.

SP- 20/50

An easy hundred EXP;

Level- 2 (160/400)

I looked down and found both Mewoth’s had disintegrated into loot items. I found two cat pelts, one glowing brighter than the other. The first normal looking one just read;

Fur, E class item

The fur from an animal. You can treat this to create leather.

While the second shinning one read;

Rare Cat Fur, D class item

The fur from a Meowth. You can treat this to create leather.

Bonus- +5

I whistled, each pelt gave me a boost of 5 stat points, guess my new rat’s foot really does make a difference. The other loot items I found was a single gold coin;

Gold coin, A class item

A precious metal that is known to be expensive in the open market. One can sell this for a very pretty price.

Nothing I can use right now. And finally I found a necklace with a tooth on it;

Meowth’s tooth, C class item

The tooth of a Meowth symbolises a victory over a powerful enemy. Wear it proudly.

Bonus- +20 HP

I whistled, now that was cool. I immediately put on the necklace and smiled seeing my HP be raised by 20 points. I then took the rare cat fur and wrapped it around my shoulders, might as well have some kind of protection. The arms were around my shoulders and it’s leg hanged off my back, it was very big, not something an eight year old could wear comfortably, but I managed to make it work.

STR- 2 (+5)

Plus I’ll admit, I kind of looked cool. I really need to get some potions for my chakra and stamina...wait...does food heal people?....FUCK! I can’t believe I never checked! I went to the pound and scooped some water into my palms drinking it eagerly.

My CP didn’t go up, but my SP did. It went up my 5 points;

SP- 25/50

I drank some more water to recover all my SP and then waited until my CP finished recovering too. Now back to a 100%, I took to the tree tops and began to explore the forest once more.

Soon I can into another pack of Rattatas. Curious as too see how they would react to my genjutsu, I quickly performed the required hand signs and threw my chakra onto a larger than normal looking rabbit that was a single level higher than the rest.

I watched as it started to act irrational, charging into his own friends, killing them by biting into their necks. It killed three before two other Rattata’s managed to bring it down by working together.

The moment they did that I moved. I threw a kunai at on rat pokemon, getting it in the head;

Ping!

You gained a critical strike! DMG is multiplied by 5!

Thanks to stealth, your critical strike is doubled!

- 55 HP!

I leaped down and found myself surrounded by three Rattatas. I took out a sharpened fang in each hand and fought using my Disturbance style. I leaped over a charging rat, stabbing it with a fang before sending a kick that sent it flying into a tree.

Ping!

You gained a critical strike! DMG is multiplied by 5!

Disturbance style user- 7+2+ 4= 13 X 5 = 65 DMG!

I sidestepped another charging pokemon and brought another fang down on it’s back, hitting it with my leg sending it flying away

Ping!

You gained a critical strike! DMG is multiplied by 5!

Disturbance style user- 7+2+ 4= 13 X 5 = 65 DMG!

SP- 45/50

Then the third pokemon came. It leaped at me, now the movements became predictable. I allowed it to come close enough that it couldn’t move. I managed to snatch it out of the air, plugging my left fang into it’s head over and over again;

Ping!

You gained a critical strike! DMG is multiplied by 5!

I dropped the now dead pokemon on the ground and panted;

SP- 20/50

I really need to learn how the SP system works. I looked around and found each Rattata that was killed turn into golden dust before vanishing before my eyes leaving behind items.

I gained 8 fur petls and 8 fangs as a reward. However I also gained something very valuable;

200R

MONEY!!! I snatched it up and immediately put it into my inventory, seeing it rest there made me so fuckign happy! Maybe now I can finally get more than a single kunai! I also gained 80 EXP from this little ordeal, but that wasn’t as amazing as the money, whahaha!

Level- 2 (240/400)

I looked around before getting back on the tree tops and searched for more opponents to face. I came upon another herd of Rattatas soon enough, I defeated them all using the same methods as before. Genjutsu, kunai, kick punch and stab until I won.

Pack after pack I went, finding it oh so easy to kill them off, by the end of the third pack I had killed over 21 Rattatas. Honestly I expected to at least find a poke ball or something by now. Maybe I really expected to kill them instead of capturing them. Either way, several of my skills had leveled up;

Ping!

You have leveled up!

I grinned, I had 28% control now, this meant that out the total 100 CP I had right now, I could use exactly 28, I can use my genjutsu twice now! I knew investing in control was the way to go! Next time I level up control would be at 32%, then 36% and then more! And that is if I don’t train in it at all!

I also gained a lot of loot from those 21 rattatas. I gained 21 fur pelts and fangs. But I also gained 2,400R and a weapon! Yes, that’s right, a weapon! It was a dagger, a short metal one bigger than my kunai;

Fang dagger, D class item

A dagger made out of the fangs of Rattatas, this is denser than normal bone and can slice easily through flesh

DMG- 4

It seems that fangs can actually be made into daggers! It was a rarer loot item, obviously, but it was amazing nonetheless.

I studied the item carefully, observed it’s smaller features and gathered that to make a proper fang dagger I can’t just use one fnag, I need to use three. I studied the dagger’s structure and learnt how to create it, I needed three fangs and something to bind it together, like leather. And while I didn’t have leather, I did have fur pelts, I would just need to manage

I used my kunai and slowly carved out the three fangs into the needed form before tying it together with strips of leather. It took me ten minutes to make one dagger and surprisingly, I was successful!

Ping!

You have crafted an object successfully!

Ping!

You have gained a new skill!

Crafting, Lv- MAX

Your ability to make an object using the raw materials at hand.

Recipies known:

Fang dagger

I looked at the dagger, observed it;

Fang dagger, E class item

A dagger made out of the fangs of Rattatas, this is denser than normal bone and can slice easily through flesh

DMG- 3

It was a near perfect copy of the dagger I had gained as loot! Despite the small difference to me using fur instead of leather which must have caused the smaller DMG. Hm, something to keep in mind.

I moved to make the other daggers but as I began the process of crafting the dagger a new box popped up;

Do you wish to craft a Fang dagger?

Y/N?

I blinked, I didn’t realise this was even an option! I grinned and pressed yes causing the items I had on hand to suddenly disappear leaving behind a fang dagger. My eyes went wide, instant crafting?! Holy shit!

I did this over and over again converting all the flags into daggers. In the end I gained 10 fanged daggers and used up all my fangs and 4 of my pelts.

With a grin I moved, armed with a kunai in one hand and a dagger in another and two hidden in my pants, I was ready!

I didn’t have to go far as in the next clearing I came unto I found a huge pack of Mewoths. I groaned, there were around….10 cats in total..hm, I killed four rats and found two cats. Now I killed around 20 rats and happen upon 10 cats? It can’t be a coincidence.

But I had it under control. There were all gathered together in a gallon of sorts under a large tree. I knew I could use this to my advantage somehow. But first thing’s first, genjutsu!

I focused on the biggest Meowth there, level 6, one sleeping soundly in the middle of the hollow. I performed the genjutsu and sent out my chakra at him;

-10 CP!

I waited in silence and watched.

Ping!

  • Stealth, Lv- 6 (3%)

Your ability to hide in plain sight is crucial for being a ninja.

Chances of not getting spotted- 16%

For stronger opponents, -2% for each level they surpass you

Oh for god’s sake not now! I dismissed the message and looked and watched. The Meowth got up, awoken from it’s nightmare, it cried out and it’s friends looked at it in curiosity. It was a mindless beast and so it reacted violently, I’m sure a human would be scared first before growing violent, but not this beast.

It let out a crazed cry and charged forward swiping and slashing at it’s own friends, one of whom died instantly.

The Meowth was quickly surrounded by enraged members of the pack, I grinned, I could use this distraction!

I prepared my genjutsu again, this time focusing on a pokemon near the back that had no one else around. I flashed through the two hand signs and;

-10 CP!

The Meowth roared and leaped into the fray. The cats didn’t even spot him as they had their backs turned. The two now genjutsu trapped pokemon cried out and attacked all their allies.

Soon the ten Pokemon pack turned to four, with the two genjutsu Meowths finally killed off. I stayed hidden in the trees, I’m not going to jump in there and attack like an idiot. I waited for ten minutes, the four remaining cats began to lick their wounds, circling away from their dead. And when my CP was full, I used the genjutsu twice;

-10 CP!

-10 CP!

The jutsus latched onto two of the four remaining Meowths making them leap at their remaining allies. I sat and watched them fight with each other, a wicked smile happening onto my face.

When the Meowths were dead, only the two I controlled remained. They then circled each other attacking them ferociously. Only one was victorious, it roared with a proud shake of its whiskers, but it was short lived as my kunai and horn dagger met with it’s skull;

Ping!

Ping!

The pokemon dropped dead on the spot. I sighed, yup, I’m awesome.

Ping!

A skill has leveled up!

  • Kunai techniques, Lv- 7 (3%)

Your ability to handle a kunai accurately.

Aquaracy- 42%

Bonus- 4% to DMG

I also gained 500 EXP, which wasn’t much but it did clear half my EXP bar;

Level- 3 (550/800)

I leaped down from my tree and looked around the clearing for the loot items the pokemon dropped. I found four fur pelts, I also found three gold coins from in the loot and gained 3,000 Ryo, which doubled the total money I had!

Yup, it was good to be me.

I also got a mysterious loot item, a scroll. Now it wasn’t a jutsus scroll, but it was something interesting. It was a map of the forest, and the moment I opened it it disappeared, but instead I gained a mini map in the bottom right corner of my vision that showed me where I was and more important, how many enemies were around me.

I currently had five red dots at my north, ten in the south west and one very big on in the East most corner of the mini map, which I’m guessing is the boss around here. I could definitely use this.

And finally, there was the final loot item, an item I had almost missed, hidden behind bushes in the thick forest fauna. A bright metal ball that was half red and half white with a black band separating it in the middle.

Pokeball, A class item

Allows the owner to capture and bind a pokemon to your will.

Chance of capture- 10%

-10% for every level greater the pokemon is to you

+10% for every 10% of it’s health you reduce

The use was the same. I weaken it to get a higher chance of catching it and if it’s stronger than me, it can escape easily. Hm, I wonder what the specs for a Masterball would be?

Either way I couldn’t help getting a smile on my face as I picked it up and looked at the pokeball in my hands. This was it, proof that I wasn’t just meant to fight and kill these things, but fight and capture them! They could work like summons for the ninja world!

Ping!

Quest alert!

Catch your very first pokemon!

Reward:

500 EXP!

?

Failure:

Have to wait until you find another pokeball to try again.

Do you accept?

Y/N?

Obviously I selected yes!

Oh I’m so excited! I can’t waste this chance, no, I only had one ball, one shot to catch a pokemon. Meaning no Rattata or Meowth, no, I’m going to catch the boss pokemon of this level...whatever that was.

I need to make sure I get strong though, so that when I face it, I can be sure only to weaken it just enough that I can capture it and not kill it.

So I climbed onto the tree branches and took off. I first arrived at the ten dots which proved to be ten Rattatas. I killed them easily with the same genjutsu and kunai trick. But this time I gained a new notification;

For using chakra a lot you have gained +1 CHA!

CHA- 11

Huh, cool. I defeated the rat pokemons and got six fangs, which I fashioned into daggers for myself, five pelts and one carrot….I don’t know what I can do with that.

I then went to the five in the south west, Mewoths, predictably. I used my tried and tested formula to get them down too earning two more gold coins, three fur pelts and one really sick looking fake tatoo of a tiger;

Fake Tatoo, C class item

Paste tattoo onto body part and gain the ability to launch a fireball jutsu one time!

DMG: 50

This was the coolest thing I ever got! Well, other than the pokeball.

Not only was there no chakra requirement, but it also allowed me to shoot out a fireball! I knew I should probably use it now for the boss battle to come to have a greater chance to catch it, but at the same time, I can’t waste this.

I looked at the tattoo and found kanji written all over it, this was fuinjutsu, I could mass produce these! So I put it in my inventory so safe keeping, I’ll just have to fight the boss without an ace in the hole.

But on the plus side I did get enough EXP to level up!

I grinned, this was so worth it. I took off via the tree branches heading towards the big red dot on the map. I arrived at a small hill with a cave on it’s side. If I had to guess there would be a bear pokemon of some kind inside, no other answer.

I knew going into that dark cave was suicide, so I needed to lure him out. But how? I looked around and found a few stones lying around. I grabbed them and took aim, throwing them at the cave, hitting the stone inside.

I kept at it, throwing one after the other, until, “Growlithe!” the creature inside roared.

I blinked, ‘a growlithe?’ It’s shadow come out of the cave, it’s huge body barely big enough to reach my chin. It was covered with bright orange fur with fangs as sharp as a kunai and an aura of fire around its body;

I grumbled, ‘okay, first weaken him and then catch him!’ I quickly performed the genjutsus on the puppy pokemon;

-10CP!

And I watched as the pokemon began to act like a mad man randomly barking at the air at things that may not exists. He cried out, hit himself in the head once or twice, acting like he was surrounded by enemies. And then, like the first Mewoth I used this on, it collapsed and fainted.

I smirked as got down, landing behind the pokemon. I would need to time this right, hurt it just enough that I can catch it and not a point more. I took raised my kunai and dagger and plunged them down as hard as I could;

The bear cried in rage as my weapons digged into it’s neck and down through to it’s spine.

I took out two more horned dagger and smashed them into his sides;

Not enough, I need to hurt it even more!

But then the pokemon moved. It managed to turn towards me and croak out a wave of flames at me.

‘Ember’ I realised as I jumped back, taking out my last two daggers and slipped into my Disturbance style, attacking the pokemon by moving around it.

It was moving erratically, the pain too much, so I managed to outmaneuver it at every turn thanks to the -40% VIT status.

Disturbance style user- 7+2+ 4= 13 X 4 (Weapons DMG) = 52 DMG!

HP- 63/350

I grinned and moved to it’s back, one more hit landed on it;

Disturbance style user- 7+2+ 4= 13 X 4 (Weapons DMG) = 52 DMG!

HP- 11/350

NOW!

I jumped back and threw away the fang daggers. I reached into my inventory and took out the pokeball aiming at the pokemon and throwing it with my best accuracy shot.

It was pinned down, unable to move as nearly 10 daggers and one kunai stuck out of it. The ball landed on it’s nose and immediately the pokemon’s body turned red, turned into light that was then absorbed into the ball.

The ball landed on the ground and began to wobble. I gulped as I watched it shake. I did the calculations in my head. There was a 10% chance to catch it. -10% for every level it was higher than me. That was -10%

So far, there was a 0% chance of capture. But then I added the bonus for weakening its health. I had reduced to less than 90% of it’s total health, meaning I got a bonus of 90%! Meaning the chances of success was around 90%.

FUCK YEAH!

I watched the ball wobble, ticking away as I watched the dial flash red. It shoock once, twice, and then...it slowed down, I wasn’t worried. I knew it would click in my favour. And then;

Ping!

Quest completed!

Catch your very first pokemon!

Reward:

500 EXP

Jutsu scroll: Great Fireball technique

“YES!” I cheered out loud, “I caught a Growlithe!”

Ping!

A new box opened up before me showing the pokemon I caught and it’s stats. These were a lot more complete;

Growlithe,

Now this was cool! Fuck yeah! Plus it seemed that after capturing it, it’s returned to full health! Hot damn!

Ping!

Note: You have unlocked the pokemon list. From the list you can access your pokemon to summon into battle. Any defeated pokemon will not die but simply return for rest and recuperation. HP will recover at a rate of 1 HP per minute for all pokemon, with a few exceptions.

WARNING: You can only keep a total of six pokemons at all times. Any extras obtained will have to replace the ones you have at present.

Okay, good news, I don’t have to worry about healing it after battle, after all it’s not like I can explain where I got a fucking pokemon! And second while the six pokemon limit was a bummer, I’m just glad I got them in the first place!

I turned to the pokeball and picked it, immediately the moment I touched it the ball vanished and in it’s place came up a new black screen which showed me all my pokemons in various pokeballs, their health conditions listed next to them, similar to the pokemon game menu.

Hm, so this was my pokemon list. Nice. I have to say I like this new addition very much.

Ping!

Would you like to give your Growlithe a new name?

I blinked, again with the names! But...hm, oh I know! How about…

Ping!

Your pokemon has been named, Flamer!

Hehe, troll humor. I closed the option and turned towards the loot item I obtained from my quest, a jutsu scroll!

Justus scroll: Great fireball technique

The jutsus was definitely something I wanted, I finally had a powerful jutsu for offensive needs. I put the item away for storage, just then a new message popped up;

Ping!

You have cleared the dungeon’s first level! Second level has now been unlocked! Would you like to exit now?

+5 new species of pokemon available!

Y/N?

I had enough for such a long day, I obviously pressed yes. And suddenly there was a flash of light and I was back in the park. Od thing though, I expected it to be bright outside, I knew I was in there for at least a few hours, but no, nothing.

Time had stopped for me...this power was so fucking broken! I’m totally going to catch them l...oh, no, wait, I can’t do that, I can only catch six….then I’m totally going to train them all to level 100! After I myself reach there of course.

Whatever, this shit is still so fucking broken!
