From: Amber Foxwing (creese@qwest.net) Subject: [PW!] Amber's First Battle Newsgroups: alt.games.nintendo.pokemon Date: 2001-07-15 09:58:28 PST Amber walked down the path with Nyara in tow. Nyara began to get very irritating as she had to stop and sniff a few of the flowers when they walked by. "You don't act like a Sneasle," Amber remarked. Nyara shrugged and picked a daisy with her huge claws. "Snee sneasle snee sle sle [You don't act like a human.]" "I have my own personality." "Sneasle snee. [So do I.]" "Oh; I never thought of that." Nyara giggled and began to gather a bouquet of flowers. Suddenly there was a low moan ahead. "What's that?" "Snee? [Huh?]" Amber cautiously poked ahead and listened closely for the moan. "There it is again!" "Sneasle? [What?]" She parted the long grass and found a little piece of candy. "The moan didn't come from this. I guess I'll take it though---what is it?" "Sne sle sle sle! Sle snee sle snee! [It's a Rare Candy! You can use it too make one of your Pokemon raise a level.]" "Rare Candy, huh? Well I'm going to find the source of that moan!" She walked closer to the trees, and suddenly beside the moan, there was a girl crying. She had to find them! Amber ran towards the sound while she could hear it, and found a little girl next to a poisoned Growlithe. "Oh, don't hurt me!" she wailed. "I'm not going to hurt you, I just want to know what's wrong?" "My Woofy was poisoned and I'm afraid to take steps cause it'll poison him more! Could you get me the Antidote?" "Sneesle?[Woofy?]" Nyara said in a disgusted voice. "Nyara!" Amber said, cuffing her ear. "Now let's get the girl her Antidote!" "My name's Sammy!" the girl said. "Thank you so much!" AMber shrugged, and said, "You're welcome." As she walked further along the trail, she tapped into her Pokegear. No map. "Drat!" she muttered. She wandered through the Route from her hometown to Cherrygrove. Suddenly a Rattata ran across the path! "Snee--- [Ah, um---]" Nyara stuttered. The Rattata stopped to observe them and Amber saw her chance. "Nyara, GO!" But Nyara was gone. Behind her, Nyara hid and shook her head violently. "Sneasle, Snee snee! [No fighting!]" "What?!" Amber cried. "You won't fight?!" Nyara shook her head. "Sneasle snee snee Sneasel leesn snee.[If you make me fight, I'll run away!]" Amber sighed. "Ok, Nyara. After this ONE fight! Pleeeeeease?" Nyara gulped and stepped in front of Amber, her heart thumping furiously. She backed up against Amber's leg, and slowly edged closer to the L.2 Rattata. Amber waited patiently, and let her take her time. Nyara finally stood in front of the Rattata, trembling, and bit her lip. "Snee...[Er...]," She stuttered. "Rattata!" the rat cried. It bit her leg! "SNEE! [YOW!]" Nyara growled angrily and swiped continuously at Rattata. Suddenly the Rattata collapsed! "You did it! You did it! Good job, Nyara!" Amber cried. Nyara smiled shakily. "Sneasle, snee? [I did, didn't I?]" Suddenly a Metapod fell from the tree, asleep. "SNEEEEE! [YAAAAAAA!]" Nyara leaped behind Amber, puffing quickly. She clutched Amber's leg and cried, "SNEASLE SNE SNEEE! [DON'T MAKE ME!]" Amber sighed, and picked up Rattata's body and walked to Cherrygrove city. TO BE CONTINUED...
