Will he make it to the gym? Will he ever get directions to Celadon City? Err...just read the (very short) story! ] Dan stepped up to the strange gym. As he walked through the door, someone said, "Who goes there?...Oh, it's you. What do you want?" "I need directions to Celadon City," Dan said. "Oh," the person said. "I'll see what we can do." Dan walked through the halls of the gym. Many people were here to train their psychic powers and Pokemon, and some were there to challenge Sabrina. Dan found the door to the battle room, where a group was waiting to battle. He peeked in and saw that someone was battling already, a Pikachu. Dan looked more carefully..."It can't be," Dan thought. "Am I unconsciously following him around?..." Dan closed the door and pulled the latest Pokemon magazine and opened it up to an article. The article was about Team Rocket. The article made him think about his stolen Pokemon, and something else too... He looked back into the battle room and saw the others by the sidelines. "I've seen them before," Dan thought. "They were on that mission to save Icy." He then remembered something he heard, before he started his adventure. About the group they were all in. He stood outside the room, thinking... "To protect the world from devastation!" -Misty "To ignite all peoples within our nation!"... -Duplica "If you're going to imitate us at least do it right!" "To UNITE all peoples within our nation, not IGNITE!.." -TR -"Ditto's Mysterious Mansion"
