From now, I have grown a lot with my actual team. Pidgey and Squirte learned some great moves and skills. They are now great battlers and they improved a lot more in battles. I guess I'm a good trainer.
We went straight to the Viridian Forest, right north, where we encountered a very interesting Pokémon, Pikachu. I was glad to see that rare Pokémon here and I thought it would be a neat idea to catch it. Pidgey went first. Using Gust wouldn't knock out the Pikachu automatically, so it used it multiple time, even after being paralyzed. After a time, Pikachu was weak, and it was the perfect moment to throw a Pokéball, so I did. And Pikachu is my third team member !
I went back, scared of that noise around and trained my newly caught Pikachu in the grasses just before the entrance of the forest. After few minutes, I remembered Blue's challenged on Route 22. I went there, happy to see my friend again. He was ready, more hasty then ever.
Max vs. Blue
The win goes to Max!
Even being defeated, Blue didn't let his hopes go and walked away, while I was still watching the ground and staying there. I was proud of how my team was. After all, iwas the one who raised them.
I decided to move and I was confident about passing through the Viridian Forest. I started to defeat one trainer, then two, then three, until I came to an end. A very happy end.
I decided that I deserved some rest with my Pokémon so I stopped by and went to the museum. Next step, training to challenge Brock and my upcoming (first) badge.
After some hard and intense training, where my Squirtle learned Water Gun and both Pikachu and Pidgey learned Quick Attack, I finally took my courage and went challenging Brock, Pewter City's own Gym Leader.
Max vs. Brock
The win goes to Max!
It was an easy battle. During it, Squirtle shone really well and, at the end of the battle, Squirtle evolved into a beautiful Wartortle! I was amazingly and goodly surprised about it. I took my badge and Brock wished me luck for the next part of my adventure that has just started.
