Jason shakes his head grinning. "Well that was interesting wasn't it
boy." A loud bark from his dog. "I guess it's back to pokemon." He dug into his
pocket and retrived his pokedex. "Libro, there is a gym in Vermillion,
Correct?" He asks. "That is correct." The device states in a mechanical voice.
"Well, enlighten me about him." It makes a sound like it was clearing it's
throut. "Vermillion's gym leader is Lt. Surge. Lt. Surge uses only electric
pokemon." Jason nodded absorbing this information. "Surge nomally uses three
pokemon, they are: Voltorb: Level 21, Pikachu: Level 18, Raichu: level 24.
However given that pokemon growth rates rely on battle expirience this
information may be invalid.
"Electricity is weak against ground. Libro, There are two ground type
pokemon around here aren't there?" The pokedex beeped. "Correct, Diglett and
Sandshrew." "Which is stronger?" Jason wondered. "The majority of Sandshrew
excede in every area but Special." "Alright then let's go get one"
Jason Tramped through the tall grass east of Vermillion city trying to flush
out a Sandshrew. He had his pokedex set to alert him the moment a Sandshrew
had been found. He heard a beeping and Inferno was pulling him. "Shrew?"
Jason reached down and took a pokeball off his belt. "Go Talon!" In a flash of
white light the Spearow he had recently caught appeared. "Alright Talon, peck
attack." Though Jason couldn't see it, Talon repeatedly pecked the Sandshrew.
"Sand shrew." It cried rubbing his head. "Ok Talon!" Jason said holding out a
pokeball. Talon flapped over and took the pokemon in its claws, the flew over
and dropped it on the injured sandshrew.
Jason Gritted his teeth waiting for the catch to be made. When he heard Inferno
bark he knew he had a third pokemon. Talon flew over and dropped the smooth
ball into his hands. "Your name will be Sandstorm." He clipped the ball to
his belt. "What moves does it know?" He asked his pokedex. "At level 17
Sandstorm knows Slash, Scratch Cut and Dig." Jason was confused. "Wait a
second, Isn't Cut an HM? and Sandshrew don't normally learn Dig." There was a
pause. "My hypothesis is that this Sandshrew had a previous trainer. Who then
Jason shrugged. "Whatever, he's my pokemon now."
