They followed Samuraichu to the gym and stepped inside. Looking over the battleground, White Blade could see nothing had changed. Samuraichuwas getting ready to battle Brock. "Raichu! Rai chu chu!!" Brock looked at him and said... "Huh? Did someone lose a Raichu?" White Blade stepped forward and translated. "He said he wants to challenge you for a badge! And after that, this Persian and I want to fight the strongest pokemon you have." Brock marrowed his eyes (is that possible?) at this new opponent. "Alright then! 2 on 2 battle!" TBC by Samuraichu!
