The Diary of Penny Langthorpe, Aged Ten and a Half

11th

Daddy says that he has a holiday from work and so we are all going to Snowpoint City for a whole week! I’m really excited because I get to go away from school for a week and away from horrible Sarah Davis and her stupid face.

Mummy says that it will be snowing when we go and the snow will be so deep we will have to hold onto my sister Marie extra tight so she doesn’t sink and get lost! I don’t believe her, but I don’t want Marie to fall in the snow and get lost.

12th

Work has let daddy use the company Staraptor so we can fly up to Snowpoint City! I’m very excited, I have never flown anywhere before. Mummy says we have to hold on very tight and we will be strapped in so we don’t fall out. I will be sitting with daddy and Marie will be sitting with mummy.

13th

Snowpoint City is very cold. We flew in and daddy showed us the house we will be staying in. it is a very nice house and Mr and Mrs Johnson are the people who run the holiday house and they are very nice.

Mummy and daddy made us tea while me and Marie had a snowball fight. I won but she cried because she got too cold. She had some hot tea and then we built a snowman.

There are some strange Pokémon here I have never seen before. Mr Johnson told me that because it is so cold in Snowpoint City, the only Pokémon they can catch nearby are special ones that can work in the ice. His favourite Pokémon is a Weavile that cuts firewood all day to keep the house warm.

14th

Last night there was a very loud noise that woke me up. Mummy and daddy said they didn’t hear it, but I heard a loud noise and felt the house shaking. The snowman had fallen over in the night.

Daddy wanted to take us to the temple today, but it’s closed and only the best Pokémon trainers are allowed inside. I thought daddy was the best Pokémon trainer in the world because he has an Ivysaur and I have never seen another one of those.

We went to the gym instead today to watch the Pokémon battles. It was very exciting but Marie fell asleep. A man called Rival came and challenged the gym leader and beat him – the gym leader said this is very rare and we were lucky to see it.

I helped Marie fix the snowman before we went to bed. I like this place very much because I like the snow – we don’t have snow at home in Solaceon Town.

15th

The house shook again in the night. Mummy was worried about things called ‘afulanchez’ where a big snowball flattens a town, but Mrs Johnson says that the City is protected by many Pokémon and there has never been a big snowball ever.

Just to be safe, me and Marie made a wall of snow around the house to stop the big snowball.

The snowman had something on it today, it looked like a wild Pokémon had come and bitten it. Marie was upset, but I said it was funny that a Pokémon would bite a snowman.

16th

I saw some trees that were outside the city fall over on their own. Mummy didn’t believe me, but trees don’t fall over like that. I went to see them and it was like they had been cut away from underneath the ground, like their roots had been cut by something moving by them.

It is very strange, so me and Marie played detectives all day in the snow looking for clues. She found a feather.

The snow is deeper. One of the shops has sunk into it a bit.

17th

A lot of Staraptors have been circling the City in the air all day. Mrs Johnson said she can’t think why because birds don’t like the cold weather up here.

I think they’re here to make sure we have a nice time in the snow.

18th

The ground shook again last night. It woke up everyone in the City because we all came outside in the night to see what was going on. Nobody knows. I think it’s the snow getting deeper and that’s how it does it.

There were more Staraptors in the air today. They keep landing on the houses and looking down at us. I think they’re cute.

I saw a new Pokémon I’ve never seen before today. It was like a huge snake made out of metal and it came from under the ground. It was bigger than all the buildings in the City!

Tomorrow I’m going to go and find the hole it came from and ask it to stop making the ground shake.
