A police officer Stops them. "Excuse young ones but saffron City is closed down." said the police officer. "Well why?" asked Mary "Team Rocket is there and is causing a disturbance." said the officer. "Oh. Well then how do we get to the next city." asked Jack. The Officer pointed to the wooden tunnel over to the left. "You take that tunnel all the way to the end. It'll take you to Vermilion. but be careful there some mean pokemon in there." warned the officer. "Thanks." So then the two trainers When into the tunnel. Every now and then a rattata would hiss at them. Then a Diglett popped up. "A Diglett." <Diglett Mole Pokemon. Lives a yard underground where it feeds on plant roots It sometimes appears above ground.> "Well this is mine." said Jack. "No you already have a ground Pokemon. This is Mine!" said Mary. "Rattata GO!!" said Mary "Rat-tat-a" said the rat as it emerged from the pokeball. "Okay Rattata Hyper Fang NOW!!!" The rattata Opened up it's tiny mouth and closed it as hard as it could on the Diglett. "Good Pokeball GO!!" The Digglet who was just about to go underground Turned red and went into the pokeball. It shook 3 times and then was caught. Then the Pokeball turned red and disappeared. "Hey... Oh yeah I remember. Rattata Return." Then they kept on walking through the tunnel. As they emerged from the end of the tunnel Jack saw a Nidorino that was chasing a helpless Nidoran. "Hey that Nidorino should be taught a lesson. Onix GO!" The Huge snake came out of the Pokeball and then the Nidorino turned around ready for a fight. But the Nidoran cowered at the sound of the onix's roar. It then turned around and relized it was being saved. "Okay Onix Rock slide." Then Onix Lifted up it's Huge head and roared again and again and again until it heard the sound of rolling rocks. All of the rocks spooked the Nidoran and it ran behind a tree for protection. Then Mary ran to the tree relizing it will do squat to help the nidoran and picked it up then ran behind a rock. "Oh no Jack. Eevee go get Jack." said Mary. The eevee came out and ran to Jack to tell it to run. Jack got saved but the Nidorino didn't. "Okay Pokeball GO!" yelled Jack. The Nidorino was easily captured. "JACK NEVER, EVER USE THAT MOVE AGAIN!" yelled a very mad Mary. "You almost killed this Nidoran." said Mary. Then Jack started to cry. "I.... I... was just try-trying... to help it out." cried out Jack. Then the nidoran jumped out of Mary's arms and went to Jack and started to rub against Jack's leg. "I'm sorry Nidoran." he said rubbing it's back. Then Nidoran ran off. "Jack, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to yell." apologized Mary. "It's okay." Then they both went to Vermilion. TBC
