Trousle awoke the following day feeling refreshed and ready to get things
started. He had spent a few minutes before actually going to bed working
with Wooper to find out if there it knew any good moves. As it turnes out,
Wooper somehow had acquired the move Water Gun, so Trousle was beaming with
pride when he walked out into the lobby of the Pokemon Center to find out
how the Slugma was doing. He approached Nurse Joy and cleared his throat.
"Good morning, Nurse Joy. How's Slugma doing today?" he asked as he smiled
up at her.
"Slugma is doing just fine. I think it's ready to fight you, so you need to
figure out who you want to use to fight. And I suggest you take the fight
out to the Path not too far from here. I don't want any fighting going on
in my Pokemon Center!"
"OK, Nurse Joy. Thanks!" Trousle went into the backroom and saw the Slugma
sitting on the table closest to the door.
"Slugma slugslugma, " it said as Trousle approached. Since Trousle couldn't
understand Pokemon, he didn't know what the Slugma was saying, but it became
apparent when the Slugma climbed off the table and headed towards the door.
It took a moment to glance back at Trousle before moving into the lobby.
Trousle followed the Slugma, being careful not to step on the spots of
molten slime from Slugma's body. He didn't want to burn his shoes.
Trousle followed the Slugma out onto the Path, where the Slugma then turned
around and faced him.
"Wooper! I choose you!" Trousle pulled out the Pokeball and pressed the
button on top, releasing the Wooper from inside.
"Wooper! Woop Woop Woop!" The Wooper jumped up and down excited for a
moment before calming down and standing before the Slugma. Trousle
considered carefully what his options were. He only had 4 of the Fastballs
left and he didn't want to waste any, so he had to be absolutely sure that
the Slugma was ready to be caught. "OK, Wooper! Let's show it what you've
learned! Water gun attack!"
Wooper formed an 'O' with it's mouth and started spouting water out at the
Slugma. The Slugma jumped out of the way and tackled Wooper. The attack
sent Wooper sprawling, but with only a few scratches. Wooper stood back
up and faced the Slugma once more. The Slugma was already heading back at
Wooper, so Trousle shouted, "Wooper! Close range Water Gun! Now!"
Wooper shot the Water Gun at the Slugma, this time hiting it right on. The
Slugma was knocked backwards by the force of the attack but was still
moving. However, it was moving slower now. Trousle took advantage of this
and told Wooper to do another Water Gun. Once more, Wooper hit the Slugma
with Water Gun attack and the Slugma got even slower. Finally, Trousle took
out one of the Fastballs and threw it at the Slugma. The ball sucked in the
Slugma with a 'whoosh' sound and then shook a few times on the ground. The
light on the Fastball finally went out (after what seemed like hours to
Trousle) and Trousle walked over and retrieved the Fastball.
Trousle stood in silence for a moment before shouting loudly, "I caught
Slugma! Thank you Wooper!"
"Wooper! Woop Woop Woop Woop!" The Wooper jumped around excitedly
while Trousle beamed over his capture.
"Wooper, I have decided on a name for you! I'm going to call you Whoop.
And Slugma, " Trousle released Slugma from the Fastball, "I'm going to call
"Oh, sorry Slugma. Let's get you back to the Pokemon Center. I'm sure
Nurse Joy can fix you right up! Whoop and Sharpie, return!" Trousle placed
the two pokeballs back inside his jacket along with the pokeball containing
Pidgey. He walked back into Goldenrod City's Pokemon Center and handed the
Pokeballs to Nurse Joy.
"I caught Slugma! Can you take care of Whoop and Sharpie for me?"
"Sharpie, huh? And you finally named your Wooper too, did you? Well,
that's wonderful! I'm sure Sharpie will be very happy with you!" She
smiled at Trousle as she took the pokeballs and placed them in the Heal-O
machine. After a few moments, she handed the Pokeballs back to Trousle and
said, "There you go. Good as new. Now, here's some money for helping me
out yesterday. I know it's not a lot, but it might help you out some." She
handed Trousle 300 yen. He took the yen and walked out into the city.
He wanted to find Mike so he could show off that he had caught the Slugma.
