Subject: [PW!] Derrick and the Exploding Pokemon
Date: Monday, April 26, 1999 11:06 PM
Recap: Derrick and Dern entered the Power Plant and split up. Derrick got
chased by a group of Magnemites and ran into a psychopathic trainer
who stole his Venonat. Then the trainer got surrounded by the
"Magnemite." The pokemon were surrounding the thief and ready
to Thundershock him.
"Eh he hehehehe hehe he!" the boy just cackled and took out
many pokeballs. "Go Voltorb! Go Voltorb! Go Voltorb! Go Voltorb! Go Voltorb! Go
Voltorb! Go Voltorb! Go Voltorb! Go Voltorb!" (You get the picture.)
"Magnemite!" Their eyes widened and tried to get away, but they
were too slow compared to a Voltorb.
"Ehehehehehe! No one can out do me! I am Jedd, the best there
ever was! Hehehehehe!" He started throwing the Voltorb at the escaping pokemon.
Causing hundreds of Explosions. He knocked out nearly all the Magnemite and
"Hmm, there appears to be one left standing."
"That's enough!" shouted Derrick. "They don't deserve this!"
But, the psychopathic boy just ignored him.
"How about finishing this one off with a big BANG? Go
Electrode! Go Golem! Go Weezing!"
"Feel my wrath, AHAHAHAHAHA! Everybody, Explosion!"
"Weeeezing..!" They must be real loyal. They actually are
willing to sacrifice themselves. While Jedd was cackling away about explosions,
bangs, and things blowing up, and while his pokemon were preparing to sacrifice
themselves, Derrick took out a pokeball and threw it quickly.
"In order to save it," he thought,"I must capture Magneton."
The ball easily closed around and held the nearly dead scrap magnet.
"HEY HEY HEY! You ruined the fun!"
"Get a life." Someone in the vents was speaking.
"Eh? A new victim?" Jedd looked up and from the ceiling, rained
a huge Exeggcutor which landed on his face. Next, from the ceiling came
tumbling down.................. Kathy!
"Kathy? What are you doing here?" Derrick asked. "Last time I
checked, Neo and you were at Pokemon Island."
"Come on!" she replied, "That event was supposed to be over
weeks ago! But still, people are still there. So is Neo." Derrick ran over and
took the pokeball containing Venonat from Jedd's belt.
"There's not much time! Those pokemon could blow up any minute
"Derrick, you have pokemon of the Grass and Bug type, right?"
She asked. He nodded back. "Well, most of them probably have sleep attacks and
thats just what we need to stop them from blowing up the plant!"
"Your right! Good thinking. Go Weepinbell! Use Sleep Powder on
those pokemon and quickly!" Jedd was still fainted.
"Exeggcutor help it! Use Hypnosis!" In not much time, they were
able to put to sleep, Weezing and Golem and returned them in their pokeballs to
"One's still left!" Kathy pointed out. "It's Electrode!" Exeggcutor and
Weepinbell tried to put it to sleep, but failed.
"They don't call him the fastest pokemon in the world for
nothing." Derrick said.
"We don't have much time! We're gonna die!"
With this thought in mind Derrick was more determined to save
Electrode from self destruction. "Go Paras! Use Spore! Go Exeggcute! Use
Hypnosis! Keep using Sleep Powder Weepinbell! Go Venonat! Use Sleep Powder!"
"Go Parasect! Use Spore!" Kathy commanded. Just the sight of her
Parasect made Derrick jealous. A long time ago, Paras said he didn't want to
evolve, EVER! All the pokemon filled the room with the sleeping waves and fumes
and Electrode tried desperately to dodge them. "We shouldn't return Electrode
to such a destrutive trainer," Kathy said in a muffled voice, trying to avoid
intaking the powder.
"ughghhghgh." Derrick was getting sleepy and fainted along with
"Good job Paras!" Derrick patted its head.
"I can't believe it! This is my first, aside from the idiotic
boy with the Pikachu, loss at Pokemon Tech! And against a Paras too!" The
gorgeous trainer returned her beated Growlith. "Growly, you did a good job.You
really are something, kid."
"Huh? Paras? What's wrong? You're glowing."
"He's evolving," the trainer replied. "I would expect it, after
an extremely tough battle!"
"Paras...Paras....Paras...." It was struggling to stop.
"Wh..wh..whats wrong? Don't you want to become twice as
"Paras," he shook his head sideways.
"Hey I'm an expert pokemon translator too." The girl said.
"Maybe I can help you." The girl and Paras talked for a while, then she turned
"Well, Derrick, Paras says that he likes himself the way he is."
"He says you don't need to evolve him to win battles. Before
this match, Paras couldn't wait for the big momment. But now, he sees that your
training skills have helped him become just as good as the average Parasect."
".............." Derrick broke down into tears for many reasons
and many, he couldn't describe. That day, he knew he was ready to leave.
"It's time for our second part of our training," Derrick told
Paras walking aside him. "Today is the day we head to Erika and learn more
"Did you say you're heading to Celadon?" a voice asked him. "I'm
heading there too." Derrick turned to see......
"Derrick, Derrick, wake up." Derrick opened his eyes to see
Kathy. He looked around to find himself back in the power plant. "I did it!"
Kathy exclaimed, "I caught the Electrode, but you were asleep and I have no use
"Doesn't Dern want one?"
"Oh yeah... oh, and I woke you up because you were talking in
your sleep. Is everything all right?"
Derrick paused for a few seconds then answered, "Yeah."
Leaving the fainted psychopath trainer, Derrick and Kathy went
to search for Dern.
