Tenchi had been singing sea chantys with Sammy, who was passed out once again
on the beach. He wandered over to a table with some food, and picked up a
Psyduck, thinking it was a bananna.
Tenchi cleared his eyes, and ralized he was holding a Psyduck. He dropped it
back on the ground, and wandered down the beach some more, ocaiously kicking
sand in peoples faces without realizing it.
Tenchi bumped into a guy acidently and asked him "hey buddy. Ya wannaz trade
Robert looked up at Tenchi wearily. It ussualy wasent a good idea to try to
trade with drunks. But he fiqured it was worth a shot.
"Yeah, maybe. What do you have?"
"Well, leeme have a little look-hic-see." Tenchi took out some pokeballs, and
tosed them on the ground.
"Oh yeah, i got a Nineytails, a Dragoniblair, a Psysuck, a silver Butteryfly
from that poke island thing, a pink Wiggle thingy and Nidoking-kongy..wongy
dooby do. Do yas wanna trade?"
"dejavu strikes when you least expect it. and it packs one helluva punch"
