Is there a gym in this town?" said James. "Yes. But looking at your 3 Pokemon you have. Your a little weak to battle Giovanni." said the kind nurse. "I am!? Oh yeah I'll show you. Err." said James as he took his Pokemon with him to the gym. "Err that nurse Joy. I'll show her." A few minutes later He arrived at the gym. "Giovanni I wish to challenge you. Show yourself." said James. "You want a battle. This will be 1 on 1. Nidoking Go." said Giovanni. "Go Sandshrew! Use Scratch attack NOW!" said James. The shrew moved over to the Monster and swiped at him. The Nidoking started to laugh. So did Giovanni "HAH-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha. If all your Pokemon are that weak I'll make it a 3 on 1 battle." said Giovanni. "Nidoking Earthquake attack. Now. Wait NO. I'll embarrass him. Nidoking-Ha-tackle attack Now." said the gym trainer. By this time all the trainers in the gym came to watch. The dinosaur came up and tackled the shrew. Making it faint. "Ahh. He is strong. I quit. Sandshrew Return." said James while every one in the gym was laughing at him. He then ran all the way back to the Pokemon center. "Nurse Joy heal My sandshrew Quick. Please." said James Almost crying. The emergency lights went on. "Sandshrew..." -=About An Hour Later=- The emergency light shut off. The sandshrew walked through the doors. "Sandshrew!!!" said James as he ran up to the shrew. "Oh thank you nurse Joy. I-I'm sorry that I didn't listen to you." said James. "It's okay. Come back here when you get the other seven badges." said the Nurse. "Alright. See ya." said the trainer as he headed for the forest. "Let's go caught us some bugs. Meowth." TBC
