Ebony had been watching with interest. "Good job, Weedle!" Mark congratulated the victorious Weedle, who was marching around importantly, waving it's stinger in the air. Sting, after laying streched in the sun for most of the afternoon, made a high-pitched whine and hopped over to Ebony. "What's wrong? Mark, I think something's wrong with Sting." Ebony said in concern as Sting rubbed against a tree, still making a high-pitched noise. "I don't think he's sick...hey! Sting is evolving!" Mark exclaimed, pointing to Sting. He had been rubbing against the tree to get the old skin off! Ebony watched with shining eyes as a large form emerged from the shedded skin. "Sting evolved into Beedrill!" She said, awed. Sting fluttered his new wings, and buzzed happily. "Whoa." Mark said, scratching his head. "Anyway, let's get going. We've still got a long way to Pewter."
