I wrote a post about it a while ago herebut honestly LET’S GET DOWN TO BUSINESS
The guy who gave Izuku his first pokemon is a skeleton man who was simply traveling by with an egg, but saw the potential in him and gave it to him to raise on faith alone
Izuku went on his journey to become a Pokemon master the same day as Bakugou, BUT in the completely opposite direction of him so they end up arriving at the same destination at different times
It’s half because Bakugou didn’t want to travel with Midoriya at the same time and half because Midoriya got EPICALLY lost
That’s okay tho, because on the way, he and his starter Pokemon encounter and save Uraraka who managed to accidentally upset and ENTIRE HIVE OF BEEDRILL
As thanks, Uraraka offers to help Izuku to the next town over, where they end up walking into a “New Trainers Festival” something that the town hosts every year to welcome all the new trainers vying for the Pokemon League held later in the year or other professions
Izuku and Uraraka straight up forgot about bless their souls
There they meet young Iida Tenya who has a special love for FAST Pokemon but wants to become the best Researcher there ever was
Izuku battles Bakugou again, but loses (he’s hardly had time to train)
Bakugou is about to walk out of town directly to the next town with a Gym Leader but is kinda forced into having a couple of tag-a-longs who thought his well trained Pokemon were great
Izuku, Iida, and Uraraka stay a night not only to recuperate but because they want to meet up with a couple of other new trainers who are going in different directions
Tsuyu is great, she wants to be the first Frog Gym Leader and the rivalry sparked between her and Uraraka to see who makes Leader first is bright and warm and friendly (they trade numbers on the spot)
There’s a mysterious boy who takes down other trainers with his kinda OP Pokemon named Todoroki who only starts battling that night (well after Bakugou had already left) but seems to Izuku to be just sad
Adventures happen, but eventually Izuku becomes strong enough to NEARLY defeat Todoroki, but it just opens up Todoroki’s heart to what he really wants
Todoroki decides to quit being a battle trainer and focus solely on becoming the greatest Pokemon Breeder and Nurturer there ever was
He travels with them, and that’s how the four of them really begin their travels to follow their dreams
I was thinking about creating a pokémon Teacher AU and…
Lance: a maths teacher who’s fully aware that all of his students hate maths, so instead of teaching them about maths he just teaches them about his culture and heritage as a Dragon Master.
Steven: an enthusiastic, well-travelled and popular geography teacher whoes classroom is full of interesting things he’s brought back from holiday, like bottles full of volcanic ash, amethyst geodes the size of his head and a collection of various quartzes. His students like to prompt him to talk about his travels in the hopes he’ll forget to set homework.
Wallace: a modern languages teacher and head of the language department. Teaches French and Spanish usually, but also started clubs for students keen on learning Latin, Ancient Greek and of course, Modern Greek.
Cynthia: a history teacher who really doesn’t want to teach what she’s being forced to teach (“Kanto politics? Really? NAH IMMA TEACH YOU ABOUT SINNOH HISTORY SIT YO ASS DOWN”) tends to ramble a lot about stuff not relevant to the course.
Alder: teaches religious studies but nobody cares about that shlock, he’s the captain of the school football team and all the students know him on a first-name basis.
Diantha: a charming and friendly drama teacher who uses charm and the allure of cakes and videos to hide the fact that she can’t teach for shit.
I have a few more headcanons involving gym leaders, E4 and Rangers, but what do you guys think so far?
