"MAN MAN MANKEY!"
"I can't belive you got us lost again, Monk-chan. It should of been as
simple as 'follow road, reach Veridian City.' But you had to attack
"Yes, you clobbered it good, but you got us WAY off the road doing so,
and the end result is that we're still lost."
Jon turned around. He couldn't couldn't belive it. What was someone
on the way to Veridian City doing way out here?
Gads looked at the Jolteon-mounted trainer with some about of
amusement, then decided to ask for directions. "Excuse me, do you know
where we are?"
"You're at the Big P Ranch, near the Safari Zone"
Gads's jaw dropped for a moment. "Safari Zone? We're near... the
SAFARI ZONE?" He then started laughing. "Monk-chan, you sure got us
lost this time."
The Mankey just looked down at his trainer as if he'd just snapped,
then Karate-choped his head. Better safe then sorry. This time, Gads
somehow remained conscious, but dazed.
"OW OW OW! Don't do THAT!" Gads then started rummaging through his
pockets for his painkillers.
Jon and Jolt both looked at the pair. And what a pair they were. Was
he a Pokemon trainer? It would be hard to belive.
After downing two aspirin, Gads contiuned. "Well, it seems Pokemon
Trainers are just migrating here. What's going on?"
Jon regained some composure before he replied. "It's the Big P
Pokemon race. You're just in time to sign up."
Gads looked cheered for a moment. "So that's why you're mounted on
that Jolteon. You know, that's usually not a good idea." His face then
fell. "But all my pokemon are too small for me to ride. Even my
largest, Dow, is half my size."
Jon just nodded. "If you have a well-trained Pokemon, they can act as
Gads thought for a moment, then rummaged for a Pokeball. "VINAL, GO!"
The Tangela came popping out. It looked at Gads, wondering why it was
Gads then turned to the Mankey. "Monk-chan, get on Vinal. I want to
see how it works."
Both Monk-chan and Vinal looked at Gads as if that was a very, very
stupid idea, but eventually, Monk-chan got on top of the vine-covered
Pokemon and started to try and ride it.
"Tangela! Use constrict to pull yourself! You can throw your vines
faster than you can run! NO MONK-CHAN! Don't get off and start
carrying Vinal. YOU'RE THE JOCKEY!" Gads looked on in fustration.
Meenwhile, Jon continued to look on in bewilderment. Out of nowhere,
this... character... and is going to enter a TANGELA of all things into
a race, and with a MANKEY as a mount. That had to be the stupidest...
Jon then looked over at Robert, who was still trying to figure out how
to make his Slowbro break the sound barrier, then shrugged. It was
going to be an interesting race.
Meenwhile, the Tangela ran around madley as Monk-chan beat upon it's
vines with Fury-Swipes to make it go faster, then entire time with Gads
sitting there, trying to get the pair working together. He filled out
the entry form, shaking his head.
Nearby, a shadowy figure searched for it's quarry. 'Those two got
lost good this time... better find them again. Oh well... maybe I'll
stick around and watch the Pokemon races. They're always lots of fun.'
