"You mean about letting one of your Pokemon ride in the race," asked Christy. "Mmm hmm," said Sarah Jane. "Yeah, but Shields won't be out of the Pokemon Center till later in the day," said Damian. "He'd probably be your best chance to ride another one." "I know. Ferdinand should be able to rest up enough to rest enough by tomorrow morning," she said as she adjusted her pokedex, sending Sigfreid back to her grandparents' home in Rosetta.

"He's developed a bit of a rivalry with my Onix back home." "Anyone else enterin'," asks Lara. <TBC> > -- (o)_(o) || Time Lady, sailrgal@swbell.net _(^*^)_ || sailrgal@hotmail.com, sailrgal@my-dejanews.com (__ __) || Visit the Mystic Manor Homepage /_/\_\ || http://members.tripod.com/~MysticManor
