[last time: Natasha got lost in the forest after the bus ran into a
ditch. She found and captured a Weedle, whom is now leading the group
Natasha continued plodding after the all-too-slow Weedle, wondering
where the creature was taking her. As one would expect, all questions
resulted in "Weedle eedle," with an attempted traslation like "Char,
manderchar" or "Bone cu Cubone!"
She took out her PokÚdex and pressed the Program button. A flash of
light blinded her momentarily. With a cry of surprise, she caught her
foot on a root and fell, nearly landing on a terrified Weedle.
The PokÚdex's somewhat robotic voice startled them all. "Picture taken.
Please input personal information."
Natasha muttered something and punched in her name. After the machine
was satisfied, she again followed Weedle, noticing he was moving a
Several minutes later, Weedle stopped, squealed in suprise, and crawled
over to Natasha. She looked confused...before noticing a Spearow in a
tree nearby. "Huh..."
She points the PokÚdex at it. "Spearow. A tiny bird PokÚmon." A picture
of a Spearow appeared on-screen. Nothing else happened.
Natasha smacked the PokÚdex's side again. "YOU STUPID THING! Is that all
you can tell me?!" She looked the buttons over. None implied that they
would give further information. "I can't believe I spent five HUNDRED
bucks to get this..."
As she closed the PokÚdex, the Spearow dove from its perch at Weedle.
The caterpillar screeched.
Charmander jumped forward, growling menacingly. Spearow backwinged just
short of Weedle, turning towards Charmander.
The two eyed each other for a moment. Spearow squawked angrily and flew
off. Natasha scooped up Charmander. "Thank you, sweetie!!"
"Eedle!" echoed Weedle. He scooted away again, this time at top speed.
She happily noted that the brush was thinning. As she repeated her
thoughts aloud, the forest came to a rather abrupt end. With a loud
cheer, she spotted the sign ahead:
"Welcome to Pewter City."
