Come on Sandshrew, you can do it! Just think of Whitney's Miltank." With that bit of encouragement, the Sandshrew sped up. It was slowly pulling ahead of the Tauros. Keaton's response was to release a bit of Frustration on the rolling Sandshrew, sending it sprawilng off in another direction and crashing into the ground. That pissed off the little guy. "Shrew SHREW SandSHREW! SAND!" it cried out. Bob looks a bit confused. <<Yo Raffy, what'd he say?>> The Girafarig shut his jaw-dropped mouth. <<I'd repeat it, but I can't make it PG-13.>> Bob looks stunned that Sandshrew even knew them words. <<That bad, eh?>> Raffy smiles evilly. <<Worse.>> It went back into a Defence Curl and then broke into a Rollout again. About 15 feet away from Keaton, it glowed bright white, the tell-tale sign of evolution. Now there was a very pissed off Sandslash coming up quickly on Keaton. Bob slapped his forehead "Oh brother! I don't really want to break up those two." > > There was various cheering by varoius crowd members for all of the racers.

Keaton took a quick glance at the cheering Kitsu and noticed a Sandslash tearing up the track behind him. "Damn!" He said, before speeding up a bit more. ------- Clayton
