"Reject," it says. "Go away, go far away."

I glare at it.

"Who are you to tell me that? I'm not going to put up with this! Who's with me?"

I look at my fellow Pokemon. Some turn away, others side with it instead.

"Fine," I spit, sparks flashing around me. "You stupid purple puff. You don't know anything."

I spin around and roll away. That's all I can do, roll away. Maybe that Venonat was right. Maybe I am a reject. No other Pokemon are like me.

A human made me. I think he was experimenting. He tried to get a Pikachu into a Pokeball. I don't think that was a good idea. You know, I think I've never seen a Pikachu in a Pokeball. But he kept trying, and experimented on the Pikachu, and experimented on the Pokeball...

Now there's no Pikachu or Pokeball. Just me. Not even a real Pokemon. I can't even walk.

I keep on rolling. Some humans see me but they're not interested. Nobody wants an electric Pokemon that can't even do an electric attack. Nobody wants a moving time bomb.

I don't know where I am now. You know, I don't even care. I'll just sit here. Other Pokemon come in and out. I'm here. Most ignore me. Some recognise that I am a Pokemon and deliberately ignore me. That's worse.

Two people and a cat come in. I sit watching them, not really interested. They're strange people. Before they leave, they pick me up and take me with them.

Someone wants me?

The girl shows me to the other two.

"Eee! It's a Voltorb!" squeaks the man.

Seeing me means you should scream?

Should I, should I not? Not doing it would maybe make people respect Voltorb more, but doing it would be revenge...

I won't, I think. Maybe I can be some use, that other reject Pokemon will be better liked.

"We don't want this!" snaps the cat. It can talk. At least it's not a reject.

"Get rid of it, quick!"

Get rid of me. It doesn't matter what I do, these people base their opinions of me from others. They don't think I have a mind of my own.

The girl picks me up and I start glowing.

Good. The reject Pokemon's final attack.

But as I'm about to complete it, she throws me, as far away as she can get. The attack misses.

Selfdestruct... I'm gone, and for no purpose.

A reject Pokemon leaves no body behind... nobody knows I ever existed.
