"This is... surreal. Like an out... out of body experience." Sarah drops
Barbie and stares at her duplicate, eyes open wide. She examines all of the
clone's visible body parts, and goes so far as to stand behind Mimic to see
what her own backside looks like, "Whoa, I've gotta stop eatin' so many
pancakes for breakfast."
'Sarah' turns around, just a tiny bit annoyed at having been ignored, and
repeats the question, "Mimic ask question. Want walk New Bark?"
"Hehe! Teddy would just freak out!" Sarah's hands go up to her mouth when she
giggles after imagining the expression her little brother would have on his
face if he got tackled by his sister while trying to wake up his sister
without his sister getting out of bed. After a moment, when the giggling
subsides, it is replaced by an awkward silence. Sarah looks at Mimic's eyes,
which currently look just like her hazel ones, and says, "I-I'm sorry, did
you... say somethin'... Uh, Mimic, is it?"
"Yes Mimic. Yes say some thing," Mimic says, smiling since Sarah appears to
have calmed down and is paying attention to him again, "Ask if want walk New
Sarah nods feverishly, explaining, "Oh yes, yeah! Of course... I want...
That's where we're headin', to get the Pokemon from that guy... so yeah!" She
stops and looks down at her feet, "I'm sorry... I don't want to offend... I
just... I got carried away with..."
"Is okay." When Mimic says this, Sarah sees what looks like her fair-skinned
hand being placed on her shoulder, "It happen. No problem. Mimic still be
friend." That same hand moves from Sarah's shoulder to her own hand, where the
very similar fingers interlock. Sarah is escorted out of the Pokemon Center by
her twin, and her Mareep cautiously follows, not entirely trusting the Ditto
who has assumed her trainer's form even though Sarah seems to trust him.
The two Sarahs and sole Barbie walk eastward, through the occasional field of
tall grasses. As the twins walk together, they talk, their voices very similar
but grammar very different, "Mimic think be at New Bark before night come.
Mimic no get what fisherman say. Not getting late. It middle of day."
As if to emphasize the Ditto's point, a male trainer Sarah and 'Sarah' were
about to bump into, speaks, "I'm waiting for Pokemon that appear only at
"Y-you're gonna... have to w-wait... b-because..." Sarah begins, but is
interrupted by the shrill cry of a small Sentret whose body has popped up out
of the nearby tall grasses since he is balancing on his tail. The Pokemon
catches Sarah's attention, because she's looking for a new Pokemon to defeat
Faulkner with, but not the attention of the trainer who is waiting for
nocturnal Pokemon to emerge, "If you don't... mind... can I... can I catch
this P-Pokemon?" Since the male trainer doesn't respond, Sarah heads into the
tall grasses, leaving 'Sarah' and Barbie behind. When Sarah sees that her
Mareep hasn't followed, she calls out, "Barbie, come here!"
Barbie looks over at the Sarah who went into the grasses, then up to the Sarah
she's standing next to, then back at the one in the tall grass, "Maaa...
reeep?" She knows that the Sarah in the tall grass is her trainer, but wants
to continue pretending that she's confused so that she doesn't have to battle
the scouting Sentret. Mimic is about to shove Barbie, but the Mareep races
into the patch of tall grass that Sarah's in before he can because she doesn't
want to be touched by the Ditto at all!
Seeing her running Pokemon pick up momentum, Sarah takes the opportunity to
convert Barbie's fear of Mimic into an attack, "Barbie, Tackle that... uh,
"Reeee!" Barbie Tackles the Sentret right on the white circle on his belly,
which conveniently served as a target for the panicking Mareep. Sentret curls
into a little ball, then launches at Barbie, returning her Tackle with his own
Tackle attack. The Mareep squeals and runs away from the Pokemon who just
Sarah looks back at her sheep Pokemon as it flees, "That's okay, Barbie, you
weakened it just enough! Now I'm gonna catch it!" The shepherdess reaches
behind her back and pulls out her wooden crook, swinging it at the curled up
Pokemon. It gets stuck in the blunt hook at the end. Sarah raises her staff
high, attached Sentret proudly displayed for the male trainer and
Sarah-lookalike in the area, and happily tells the world, "I caught a... a...
what is this thing?"
"Sentret!" The Pokemon answers Sarah's query right before leaping out of the
crook's hook. He bounces off Sarah's head and lands safely on his tail on the
Mimic is surprised at Sarah's unique technique for catching Pokemon, which
doesn't look very effective, but offers moral support anyhow, "No worry,
Sarah. Many Pokemon in sea. Grass too. Plenty of time left. Still day time."
Although Mimic did not speak too soon, he spoke just in time, because right
after he says this, the nearby male Pokemon trainer's Pokegear's watch beeps
twice. Daylight is suddenly substituted by darkness. Mimic looks up to see
that the moon has replaced the sun. The Sentret that Sarah had attempted to
catch stands tall on his tail and cries out to others of his kind. The cry
sounds like a whistle blowing at the end of a work shift, and all the Sentret
that hear it hop onto their tails, then race out of the tall grasses, into
hiding. Simultaneously, a swarm of Hoothoot flies in, and each owl Pokemon
sets one of its legs exactly where each Sentret that left had been. 'Sarah'
whistles in awe at this phenomenon, "Night fall quick round these parts."
Barbie, while fleeing, runs into a Hoothoot that reminds her of Faulkner's
Hoothoot. She flees yet again, this time back to Sarah in order to hide
underneath her skirt.
'Sarah' faces the trainer who had stated that he was waiting to catch Pokemon
that appear only at night, "It night. Guess you catch Pokemon now."
The Pokemon trainer looks at 'Sarah' with a confused look on his face, shakes
his head, then explains, "I'm waiting for Pokemon that appear only in the
