I haven't been able to check AGNP or my e-mail for a while, so this post is
just s bit late for the pokemon auction. Just so it is known, Mack will try
to get the auction as quick as possible.
Last time, on the Pokewars, Mack has gotten out of his coma and left the
hospital in Vermilion, with all of his pokemon. Now, he approaches the
Vermilion City Gym...
"Clefairy! Fairy Clefairy!"
Mack looked down at his small pokemon traveling alongside him.
"What's the matter now, Clefairy?" he asked.
"Fairy fairy clefairy cle clefairy clefairy fairy!" said the impish pokemon.
"Don't worry, Clefairy," Mack said. "You had a bad time with Sabrina, so
you won't have to fight this gym battle. And, no, I don't think a woodchuck
could chuck wood in the first place."
"No, I don't think many woodchucks have robo-mecha suits, either."
"No, woodchucks don't take steroids either. Ah, here we are, Surge's gym."
As Mack stepped into the gym, he spotted a rather dirty man wearing an old
military uniform hunched over in the corner of the gym. As Mack was about
to step into the battle room, the man stepped in front of him.
"Hey, move it!" Mack said. "I'm here for a badge."
The man gave Mack a cold stare.
"That's fine, but you'll have to face me first, in a one-on-one pokemon
battle. Surge was my lieutenant back in the war...the guns...No, Bob, look
out, Wigglytuff mines! AAAAARRRGGHHH!!!"
Mack patiently waited out the man's flashback until the man recovered.
"Anyway, on with the battle," the stranger said. "Go Electrode!"
As the orb-shaped pokemon was released from its pokeball, Mack grabbed a
pokeball and threw it. "Go Dratini!" he said, as he tossed the pokeball and
the dragon pokemon came out. "Dratini, sla..." Before Mack could finish
his command, the Electrode exploded in Dratini's face. As the smoke from
the explosion died down, Mack saw Dratini standing upright, although rather
blackened. Mack recalled Dratini to its pokeball as the grungy man crept
back to his corner.
As Mack threw open the doors to Surge's battle room, he beheld a slightly
aged man wearing a lieutenant's uniform.
"You're Surge, the gym leader here, right?" asked Mack.
"Yes, and that's LEUTENENT Surge to you, kid." snapped Lt... Surge. "I
you're here to battle, so hurry up!"
"Right." stated Mack, reaching for a pokeball. "Go Otto!" he yelled as he
threw the pokeball and a Snorlax emerged from it.
"Raichu, go!" yelled Surge, as the electric pokemon appeared in the battle
ring as of from nowhere.
"Otto, use Headbutt!" commanded Mack. The Snorlax remained still. "OTTO,
WAKE UP!!" The Snorlax awoke groggily to be greeted by
Raichu's Thundershock. Realizing the need for urgency, the Snorlax snapped
"Now, Otto, use Headbutt!" ordered Mack. However, the Snorlax was too slow
for Raichu, who immediately electrocuted Otto with Thunder. Realizing that
Otto was very weak, Mack said, "Otto, Rest!"
As the tired Snorlax collapsed on the gym floor, it landed directly on top
of Surge's Raichu. The Raichu tried to escape from the Snorlax's immense
weight, but it fainted from the pressure before it could free itself.
"Yeah, I won!" shouted Mack. Surge glared at him.
"I would say you were lucky," Surge replied, moodily, "but you DID beat me,
so take your badge and scram."
Surge tossed a small badge at Mack, who caught it. Mack recalled Otto and
walked out of the gym, triumphant over his recent "victory."
"Clefairy! Fairy fairy clefairy!" Outside of the gym, Clefairy was waving
a pamphlet in front of Mack.
"Huh? What's this?" Mack said, as he took the pamphlet from Clefairy.
In Celadon City, from April 5-9, all of the greatest pokemon will be up for
You name it!
Everything will be there! So get to Celadon City, right away!
"Hey, this could be pretty cool," said Mack, to himself. "I might be able
to get something pretty rare, too. What do you say, Clefairy? Clefairy?"
Mack looked around, and finally spotted Clefairy running off in the
direction of Celadon City.
"GET BACK HERE!" yelled Mack, as he rushed after his speeding pokemon.
