Prompt: Write a short story about a man who discovers a magical portal

Anthony had always been interested in the paranormal. From a young age, he was fascinated by the stories of ghosts, goblins, and witches. When he was sixteen, he uncovered a mysterious portal in his father’s attic. After entering, Anthony found himself in a world of magical creatures and castles. For the next few months, he explored every nook and cranny of the portal, discovering new rooms and secrets every time.

One day, Anthony discovered a secret room guarded by a Yanmega. After defeating the Pokémon, Anthony discovered a hidden passage that took him to a new part of the portal. There, he found a room full of treasure. Among the riches was a necklace that granted him the ability to transform into any Pokémon.

As Anthony explored the new part of the portal, he began to notice that it was slowly fading away. He knew that he had to find a way to keep it open, or he would be lost forever in this whimsical world.
