With the electricity able to work, we fly back to Lavender and recieve another radio card. We then go to Vermillion and go to the sleeping Snorlax, and wake it up! I was rather lucky with this capture, for one Energy Ball and Sleep Powder plus a Great Ball was all that it needed. I then went into the PC and got its Leftovers. Yay for free items! I then temporarily put in Cannonbolt for a Sandshrew that new Cut, and entered the Diglett's Cave. With a Super Repel on, I made it halfway across the region and Cut down the trees to Pewter, then to Viridian.
At Viridian, we meet a guy who recently had a double shot of expresso! Yow! He's really just using that as an excuse that he's sober from drinking recently. I continued South onto the legendary Route 1 of Kanto. To make it even more nostalgic, I walked the whole way there while avoiding the trainers. Once in Pallet Town, Jimmy noticed the houses, with one holding the legendary home of Blossom, the lady who defeated the champion in my FireRed adventure! I never actually said that was her name at the time, though. Oh, and there was also a guy named Red there as well.
Anyway, Jimmy went back up straight North, fighting some rather strong trainers. In the end there was an epic Pidgeot V.S. Pidgeot fight, and Carolina won. Eventually while moving north, we entered the Viridian Forest and we encountered our good undisclosed-gendered friend Bugsy. We even got his phone number! After fighting all of the trainers, we exited and got to Pewter City, and without healing, challenged the gym trainers, who were a complete pushover. Afterwards, we THEN heal, and challenge the legendary, original, 1st Gym Leader of all time...
Brock starts out with his Graveler, which Escargo Surfs away. Then Rhyhorn comes out, and as a change of pace, I let S.MachoMan battle. To not get his HP in the red, S.MachoMan Ice Punches him, who luckily Freezes! One more Ice Punch does it as Onix comes out. Cannonbolt uses its Quick Claw to Earthquake it immediately, defeating it. Now for the main event... Omastar V.S. Omastar! Brock's Omastar is slightly higher leveled, but after a few Surfs, Brines, and Protects, Escargo comes out victorious. Last up is Nassie V.S. Kabutops, and you can figure out what happened next...We got the Boulder Badge!
