Please, do sit and tell me what happened that led to your coming here." "I came to this island early this morning." "Where from?" "Goldenrod City." "OK. Go on." "So I wandered around the city here with Porygon all day, then we went into the forest at night to look for Berries." "This is a good area to find Berries, so you probably found a good deal of them." "I did." Russ pulled the Berries out of his bag and handed them to Prof. Ivy's assistant. "Bluk Berries, I see. Go wash them off and I'll put them in the juicer later." "Right away." Ivy's assistant left the room. "Please continue." "So while I was picking Berries, another trainer found us. His name was Louie.." "Ah, Louie. He studied here for a time recently." "He challenged me to a battle, which I accepted. He beat me, and that's how Porygon got hurt and I eventually found this place." "Well, a bit of rest should fix Porygon right up. .....oops, how rude of me! I forgot to ask your name!" "Russ Lackey." "Don't worry about anything, Russ. I'm sure my helpers can find you a space to sleep here. I apologise for the clutter." "No problem." "Get a good night's rest, and I'll show you the Pokémon we have here tomorrow." Russ did get a very good rest that night, but he didn't know that the next day would hold an adventure that would start him on a whole new path..... ------------------------------------------------- End
