As I reached the tall grass I had my pokemon at the ready. I walked through some of the grass then all of a sudden a lillipup jumped out. I was pretty nervous since it was my first ever battle but my confidence grew strong and then i shouted "Blaze, use tackle." He did what he was told and struck at the lillipup. The lillipup flew into the air with the impact of the rough tackle. Once it had landed, it struggled to get back up but it did. The lillipup quickly ran towards Blaze and was about to use quick attack. "Dodge it Blaze!" I shouted. Blaze had just managed to escape the speedy quick attack. Without a moment to spare i shouted out to Blaze "That was great, now use another tackle!" *BAM* It had hit and made the lillipup faint. Blaze must of enjoyed our battle because he was smiling.
As we continued the first part of the journey Blaze was loving the scenery. As we finished another couple of battles Jamie sprinted back heading straight for us. He haulted about 3 yards away. Now it's time to have a battle!" he shouted.
"Ok, i accept your challenge," I replied.
I kneeled down beside Blaze and told him to do his best whilst Jamie walked further away to give the pokemon some space. As I was talking, Blaze turned around and used Ember on a tree.
"Wow I never knew you could use ember, but we dont really need that move here as his pokemon's a water type," I said.
"It's ok, I'll let you use it another time," I said back to Blaze
"Are you ready now Callum?" yelled Jamie.
"Of course!" I yelled back.
"Go Blaze!" I shouted as Jamie yelled "Come on out Bubbles!"
Both of the pokemon walked onto the battlefield. They stared at each other hard then all of a sudden Jamie shouted out "Come he's weak against water, use Bubble!" It hit Blaze without me doing anything. Tepig still stood up (Slightly dazed by the attack). "Come on Blaze, this is tough," I said. "Quickly put all you've got into a tackle!" I demanded. "Quickly do-" yelled Jamie, but he was to late it had already hit Bubbles. Bubbles was getting weaker. "Come on, a quick tail whip then a tackle Blaze!" He had done it astonishingly quick and with a full blast of tackle Jamies oshawott was out for the count. "Good game Callum, I'm gonna train some more seeya!" shouted jamie. "Yeah you too," I whispered as he had already dashed away.
I kneeled down again and brought in Blaze. "You done great again," I said, very proudly. "Tep- Tepig!" Said Blaze.
"Callum! I forgot to tell you something," Professor Juniper cried out.
I turned round with a surprise and walked over to the Professor with Blaze by my side.
"Callum I forgot to tell you how to catch a pokemon. I'll show you just now," She said.
She walked into the grass with me following her. She walked a bit further in and a patrat jumped out.
"Ok, so what you want to do is lower it's health by attacking the opponent in mind that you can't catch other trainers pokemon. I'll throw out my Minccino to show you how to catch it," she explained.
She threw out her pokeball and the Minccino zapped out. I took out my Pokedex and looked at it's data.
After i looked I put away the pokedex and watched the Professor catch the patrat.
"So now use tackle, Minccino," said the professor.
The minccino done what it had been demanded to do.
"So now we throw a pokeball, you just throw it at the pokemon and it will shake inside, if you have caught it the pokeball will stop shaking, if you havn't the pokemon will pop back out of the pokeball. So here it goes," She explained again.
She threw one pokeball and it opened up and covered the patrat, it shook 3 times then stopped shaking.
"So that's basically how you do it, oh and before I forget, here's some pokeballs."
She handed me 5 pokeballs and then I immediately put them in my rucksack.
"So take care Callum," She said.
"I will," I replied as the professor turned and walked back to the lab.
Me and Blaze battled a couple more times but didn't catch any pokemon. Once we got to the end of route 1 we stepped into a town called Accumula town. We rushed over to the pokecenter straight away as Blaze needed some medicine.
As we were coming out of the Pokecenter we seen Professor Juniper talking to someone who looked a bit odd. We walked over to see what was going on.
