I battled some more Bugcatchers as I wandered around the Viridian Forest. I also battled some wild Bug-types in the tall grass. I trained my Charmander, Rattata, and Pidgey using those wild Pokemon encounters, then I encountered a wild Pikachu near the northern end of the forest. I was super excited because I really wanted a Pikachu on my team, so I weakened it with my Charmander, and then I captured it in a Pokeball. I wandered through the last area of the Viridian Forest until I reached the northern exit. I arrived at Route 2 after exiting, and then I arrived in Pewter City. I healed my Pokemon at the Pewter City Pokemon Center. I headed out to explore the city after taking care of that, then I arrived at the Pewter City Gym after talking to people and visiting the Pewter City Museum of Science. I battled the Gym trainer inside the Gym, then I saved before challenging Brock.
