Judd Kirst was on Route 35 when the guy challenged her to a battle.
Problem was, he had been following her since she left Goldenrod City.
"Johto certainly is a bit different from Kanto," thought the redhead,
turning to face the snot-nosed punk. He was a short, glasses-wearing,
messily-haired jerk who, for some reason, felt insulted when Judd
refused to apologize for stepping on his Persian's tail. The said
Pokemon was at his side, hissing. Judd narrowed her gray eyes and
grinned, a grin that had sent many a trainer back in Kanto running
back home. But that was when she was still with Team Rocket. Here, it
only meant that she wasn't going to let up.
She threw a Pokeball, revealing her Ampharos, affectionately named
Morgaine after one of Judd's favorite stories. Except this Morgaine
knew how to kick some ass. "Morgaine, Thunder," she said simply, her
lightly accented voice taking a dark edge. The Ampharos all too
eagerly obliged, lightning forming around its tail before shooting it
into the air. A milli-second later, the lightning enveloped the
Persian, frying the cat-like Pokemon to a crisp. The trainer stood

"Y-y-you bitch!" he yelled, but Judd was already walking away, jacket
slung over her shoulder. Ampharos walked by her side, whining softly.
Judd chuckled. "Easy friend," she said softly, "We'll be in Ecruteak
City soon. I'll get you and Kit some food then. For now, just get some
The redhead returned the lightning-based pokemon to it's ball,
continuing to walk down the road. Twisting a strand of red hair around
her finger, she looked on at the road before her, never once caring to
look back at the Persian or its trainer.
