Wonderful Updates, fresh off the press! Get 'em whilst they're hot!
You sneak throughout the halls of the Rocket hide out, trying to find the Pokémon Storage room.
Taro helps you look...albeit less enthusiastically, he *is* a Lotad, after all, and soon, you come upon the room
that says the name you are looking for. You look to the sides of the door, hoping to be able to see in,
but alas, there are no windows to look through. "I hope this card is able to be used here.." You say to yourself,
as you slide the keycard down a small pad located to the right of the door. A chime rings, and the door slides open, Star
Trek style, to reveal a room full of cages, many empty, but some have Pokémon in them.
You peer into each cage, seeing the sad Pokémon look back out at you, until you reach an aquarium type thing. Looking inside,
you see many different Water Pokémon flitting around, but a small yellow one in the corner catches your eye.
The Shiny Luvdisc floats sadly forward, peering intently into your eyes. The poor thing looks lost and scared,
but before you can do anything else, you hear the door hiss open, and a voice.
"Why'd this thing have to act up now?! Maybe I should just end your life, you worthless thing!"
You crouch behind a covered cage, and watch as a Rocket Grunt walks in carrying a Hoppip, who looks beaten to a pulp!
Wondering what could have done this, you feel yourself start to sieze up. Oh great...a sneeze!
The Grunt leaps up in surprise, and turns in your direction, after securing the Hoppip in a cage. "Who are you?" He asks warily.
Before you can say anything, he notices you aren't wearing a Rocket Logoed Shirt (tm) and pulls out a Pokéball. "Poochyena, take
care of this twerp!" He tells it. It growls, and menacingly starts forward, ready for battle.
What will you do?
Soft 'N Squishy Fire Mouse
The HootHoot drinks deeply from the bottle, and you watch it perk up like...well...any animal would
after being in a drought and drinking some water...yeah, that's it! Aizen is prepared to fight again,
as the Koffing prepares to float around like only Koffing can. Before Aizen takes off, you give it a gulp of Andidote,
which helps to dispell the poison that was flowing through its body. Aizen leaps from your arm, flapping its stubby wings to keep
up in the air. The Koffing starts to spew more Poison Gas into the small area, but at a grunt from the man controlling it,
Koffing stops and stares at Aizen. Soon, the Koffing stops staring and flies very quickly at Aizen, who just moves out of the way
gracefully, and smashes himself against the back of the Poison-Type, dealing good damage. Very angry at this, the man in black
calls his Koffing over, and pulls out a strange disk, holding it to the Koffing's forhead.
"Alright Koffing. Let's use that new move..." His voice, the first time you've heard it, calls out. Koffing concentrates, and soon,
crackles of energy form on his body. You have no idea what this move could be. What will you do?
You slide into the water, feeling the cold..wetness..of it all over your body. You give an involuntary
shiver and start to search for the lone Luvdisc. You hear, more feel, the water being disturbed behind you, and you
turn to see your newly evolved Wartortle following you. It seems he didn't need to know Dive after all!
The water is clear for most of the way, until you actually go into the small lagoon. There, it turns murky, and you can't
see very far ahead of you. You struggle to continue searching, but fail, because you just can't see. You surface in what you assume to be the lagoon,
but you find yourself in a small cavern. Startled, you look around, and see a pipe dumping...something...into the water, which you
assume is making it murky. You decide you'd rather not know what is being dumped, and pull yourself up out of the water.
Staring around, you see lights that stretch along the ceiling off into a tunnel, and you hear Pokémon cries, though distant.
It seems you have stumbled onto something...more interesting than you had thought. You hear the water splash behind you, and you turn startled
to see the Frenchman floating in the water. "'ello, I thought you might want some help. My boat iz zecure, and should be safe from
thieves. I'm certain Louvre is in here somewhere. My best bet is where those cries are coming from, but to make sure..." He trails off,
reaching onto his belt. He pulls a Pokéball from somewhere, and releases a Venonat. "Gerard, I want you to lead uz to where ze cries are coming from."
Gerard aims his antenna towards the tunnel, and trundles off. "Well mademoiselle, shall we?" He invites you, sweeping a hand towards the tunnel.
"Oh, and since you will need them, I brought your Pokémon along." He hands you the Pokéballs containing the rest of your team.
What will you do?
The Sandshrew looks on angrily as you heal your Pokémon, Swablu drinking the water deeply, and
Treecko pepping up thanks to the Soda. You also administrate a dose of antidote, which helps to heal
them. Your opponent opens his mouth wide and spews poisonous quills at your Pokémon, who begin their
mad game of "Dodge that Poison." Treecko manages to dodge all of them, thanks to his inherant
speed, and to the Soda Pop he drank, but Swablu doesn't do as well. Five poison needles lodge into Swablu's
left wing, forcing him to the ground.
This doesn't prevent him from firing off another Tri Attack, however. The three elemental energies
slam into the unsuspecting Sandshrew, dealing good damage, and giving him a small burn. Treecko, seeking
to add insult to injury, takes a deep breath and lets out a blast of water, hitting the shrew in the stomach.
The Sandshrew bellows in anger, and starts to charge at you, claws ready for a Scratch attack.
What do you do?
Although you're confused by the attack commands you heard from the boy, you issue your own, and the
battle continues. Phanpy breathes in deeply, and then fires a burst of water at Meditite, who stands its ground,
taking the Water Gun. Phanpy then snorts, seperating into 3 different mini-elephants before your Meditite could react!
Taking a random guess, Meditite tries another Mega Punch, but slips as his fist goes right through
the image. Drat, one of the clones! Meditite turns to face the remaining adversaries, but before he can try to Meditate,
waves of energy fly off the Phanpy, and crash into Meditite, who howls in pain. The flying-based Hidden Power does what it is supposed
to do, causing Meditite to start panting heavily as the damage takes its toll. Phanpy travels back to his trainer, who bends
and issues whispered instructions. It seems he's going for secrecy this round.
What will you do?
You land on the island located around Mt. Fumi, hoping to catch or at least find some exotic Pokémon.
You decide on heading for Fumi's Walk, a popular spot on the island, where many fun and exciting adventures
have happened. You start the long trek from the island's lone airport, and are dead-set on facing the challenge.
Reaching the Walk, you begin the long climb up around the mountain, keeping your eyes peeled for Pokémon, when a rumble
echoes through the area and the ground underneath your feet begins to shake what its momma gave it. You try desperatly to stay
on the winding path, but the earthquake proves to be too much, and you go sliding down the side of the mountain into the forest below.
You painfully crash into a tree, but are thankfully not knocked out. You stare at your surroundings, and realize you're lost.
A Growl comes from your left, followed by one on your right, and you realize you aren't alone. Oh goody. Injured after slamming
into a tree, and now you're being assaulted by Pokémon! What will you do now?
There you guys go, just like I promised! Have fun!
