John was walking around Celadon City, looking for something to do. He had
not met anyone interesting, and found it very boring. He looked left, he
then looked right. Then he spotted it. Standing on top of a tree, was a cute
little Oddish. John grinned and said "This should be easy... I hope". John
didn't know what to choose. He couldn't send out Dugtrio, he would be too
weak against grass. "Pokeball.... GO!". His Pokeball landed in front of the
tree. White light started to flash out of the Pokeball as... Jigglypuff
emerged. "Jigglypuff! Your first real battle! Do.... ???..... Uhm..... (((I
heard Jigglypuff knows Sing... Ill try that!))). JIGGLYPUFF! Sing Oddish to
sleep!!". Jigglypuff started singing, and Oddish fell asleep. John was
getting a bit dizzy from the singing too. He threw a Pokéball at Oddish.
Suddenly a vine snapped out of nowhere and blocked the ball. It flew back,
and hit John in the head. He was knocked out cold. While John was knocked
out, Jigglypuff returned to her Pokeball, in a very scared-like type of
walk. "Puff!!". When John woke up, he was inside a huge building. He looked
around... He tried the first door. It was filled with bad-smelling plants!
John closed the door. He checked his Pokeball belt. "Dugtrio... Pidgey...
Jigglypuff. All here...". John sighed. He opened the next door he saw.
Inside stood a young girl. Very pretty. She seemed to be talking with her
grass Pokemon, and laughing in a very nice matter. John stared, until
suddenly the girl looked at him... "Hello! Who are you? I can see by the cut
of your cloth, that you are a Pokemon Trainer. I am one too! Ah, sometimes I
wish I could just go outside and travel the world!... Oh, pardon me,
*giggles*. Whats your name?". John smiled, somehow he felt this was a very
nice person. "John" he said. "John Globe". "Ahh! Nice name! Uhm. How did you
get here?". John started explaining "Well, I saw this Oddish in Celadon
City, I tried to capture it, but some vine reflected the Pokeball back at
me, I was hit in the head, knocked out, and now Im here...". The girl had a
weird look on her face now. "Oh. That was my Oddish. My Venusaur protects
all of my Pokemon from being stolen. I am sorry if you got hurt. Oh, sorry,
I forgot to intoduce myself, I am Erika." John started speaking "Are you the
grass Pokemon gym leader?". Erika smiled. "Oh... So youve heard of me." John
smiled weakly. "Uhm... Would we still be friends if I competed for the
Rainbow Badge?". Erika giggled. "Oh of course! Pokemon training is really
nothing major to me! This will be fun! Lets go!". John stepped back, and so
did Erika. "Go... Pidgey!" John yelled as he threw a Pokeball into the sky.
"Oddish... Do your stuff!" Erika yelled as she threw Oddishes little
Pokeball into the air.
John: Pidgey... do your FLY attack!
Johns Pidgey flew up in the air, hiding from Oddish.
Erika: Oddish... leech seed!
Oddish could not find Pidgey, and thew seeds everywhere, putting even more
plants in the arena.
John: Pidgey.... COMPLETE THE FLY ATTACK!
Johns Pidgey flew down at the Oddish, hit it hard with its wings and beak.
Oddish fell to the floor.
Erika: Oh! ODDISH! Oddish... RETURN!
Erikas Oddish flew back into the Pokeball.
Erika: Time to use.... GLOOM, GO!
Erika threw Glooms Pokeball, and emerged a little Oddish-like creature.
Instead of grabing for his Pokedex, John grabbed for his nose.
John: PiiDgey! Bwow twis smell away! I cwant bweatheee!
Pidgey started flapping its wings, but it didnt do anything.
Erika: Gloom.. use your sleep powder!
Gloom opened up its flower like body, and little sparkles flew everywhere.
The first thing that John saw, is his Pidgey hitting the ground hard.....
John: Uhm... Pidgey!! WAKE UP! ..... ..... .... Pidgey... RETURN!
Erika: Oh... Im sorry. This is Pokemon training, John. I am sorry I hurt
John: *nods* Jigglypuff... GO!
Erika: Glood return, Vileplume, GO!
Erike: Vileplume... use your vine whip!
Very easily, without doing any attacks, Jigglypuff fell to the floor, crying
its little eyes out.
Erika: Oh! Sorry... Its so cute... Sorry for hurting it! SORRY!
John: Oh man... This is not gonna be good. Dugtrio... GO!
Erika: Vileplume.... use your Razor Leaf!
Instantly, the Razor Leaf damaged Digtrio, and it fainted.
Erika: OHH!!! Im SORRY!! SORRY!!! *runs up and hugs John* I am sorry. You
asked for this battle, I would refuse, but gym leaders arent allowed to
refuse. I am sorry. I hope you will beat my Pokemon next time. Here's my
Erika handed John a little card, it says:
| ERIKA - GYM LEADER OF GRASS POKEMON
Erika said "I hope we meet again John, to exit, turn around, and go
straight. No turns. Straight out. Please take your Pokemon to the Pokemon
Center and heal them. I am sorry, I did not want to hurt them so badly.".
John nodded and ran out of the gym. Erika ran out after him. "Oh. I forgot
to tell you... *points to Oddish* Throw a Pokeball at it. I have told my
Venusaur to let you.". John said "Oh, no, I will not. I will not take things
from a Pokemon Trainer I have fairly lost to." John left the scene with
Erika staring at him. She had a sort of teary eyed look on her face, she
said to herself "*sigh* Oh. I hope I meet him again... He is so nice..." She
caught a little glimpse of John as he started running into the direction of
the Pokecenter. "I hope we meet again..."...
