Subject: [PW!] Mt. Moon Has Always Bugged Me

The frozen boy stood in front of Cinder, just staring and not moving.
Could this be a result of an incompetent writer? A mishap with Cinder's
writer's news reader preventing him from reading a response? Who knows?
It's best to move on and leave these things in the past.
The Nurse had reappeared so his Pokemon were nice and healed, another
trainer had just evolved his Nidorino outside and ran in to heal up is
Pokemon. 'Best not talk to anybody else,' Cinder slipped out the door
He began wandering through town when the realization hit him, "Where the
hell am I going?" Cinder looked around perplexed, there was no sense in
going to Viridian or Pallet, so where to go? "Mount Moon! That's where!"
he shouted, causing several passers-by to sweatdrop and walk faster.
Cinder strolled along through some back paths which made the trip to
Mount Moon from Pewter City shorter. He had beaten most of the trainers
along the main path when he had first ventured to Mt. Moon which wasn't too
long ago. Finally Cinder stumbled onto the Mini-Pokemon Center outside of
the mountain. All it was, was a small cart (like a hot dog stand) with a
healing machine and a laptop to access the Item and Pokemon Storage Systems.
Cinder passed by the bored attendant and into mountain, he grabbed a
small lamp off the wall and thrust into the darkness. His small aura of
light didn't give him much visibility but it was enough. Shrieks of Zubats
and incoherent Geodude mumbles filled his ears, along with the distant
sounds of a Pokemon battle.
With all of his senses being used and his lack of light caused him to
bump into a short, pudgy person in safari clothes. The fat Hiker turned
around and glared at the boy, "How dare you bump into me! I will grind you
down with my superior power! Hoo-hah!" He was obviously a Bruno wannabe.
"If it's a Pokemon battle you want, then that's what you'll get! Go
Herc!" Cinder shouted.
"Haw haw haw! That puny thing? Face the wrath of Hulkster! The
World's strongest Machoke!" A weary, bruised Pinsir appeared, sitting on
the ground. The Pokemon was wearing a yellow Speedo with red kneepads and
yellow boots. He attempted to tear off his yellow shirt but was clearly to
weak. That poor thing hadn't been to a Pokemon Center in ages!
"Um...Herc, don't attack yet. Mr. Hiker, sir?" Cinder looked genuinely
worried, as did Herc.
"Git up and fight, don't you want to evolve and be as strong as Bruno's
Machamp?" the Hiker yelled at the battered Pokemon.
"Um, sir, that's not a Machoke," Cinder informed the cruel man.
"What are you talking about?! This here is a Machoke!"
"No it isn't! It's not even a Fighting Pokemon! It's a Bug-type!"
Cinder became mad with the idiot.
"Yes it is! Yes it is! Yes it is! I'm not listening!" the man plugged
his ears, "LALALALA!" The Hiker started to run away, his eyes shut tightly.
He nailed into a wall and fainted, collapsing to the ground. Cinder
searched the unconscious body and, sure enough, found an almost empty bottle
of hallucinogenics. He swiped some cash off the Hiker and carried the poor
Pinsir out of the mountain, followed by Herc. But not before removing the
silly costume the bug was wearing.
Cinder approached the Mini-PokeCenter outside and handed the bug to the
young woman who worked at the booth. She gasped, "I can't handle this kind
of damage! Oh no! The Pewter City PokeCenter is too full with critical
condition Pokemon for some unknown reason! I'll have to send it to
Cerulean! Is this your Pokemon, young man?"
"No, I uh..." Cinder stopped in mid-sentence, he could probably get a
free ride to Cerulean, "I mean yes, yes it is. A boulder fell on him, then
an Onix crushed him and then um... A Zubat threw him down a big hole..."
The blonde, busty attendant gasped again, taking in every word, "Well
you better go along with it! But you can't go into the Pokeball
Transporter! I guess you can borrow my Electrode..."
"Really, but how will that get me to Cerulean faster than just normally
walking through Mount Moon?"
"Um...Like, I dunno, just get on him and he'll like, get you there," the
large orb rolled into view so Herc and Cinder climbed aboard, just as the
Pinsir (in a Pokeball) was transported. "Get them to like, Cerulean City,
The Electrode grinned and began shimmer, he jumped up and exploded in
mid-air. The explosion sent Herc and Cinder flying with enough momentum to
get to Cerulean. "Looks like Cinder & Herc are blasting off for the first
tiiiiiiiiiime!" Cinder screamed as he disappeared into the horizon with a
-Godzilla, my idol
"Professor Frink, Professor Frink, he makes you laugh, he makes you thing,
he likes to run with the...person...ohhh that monkey is going to pay."
