The two trainers went back and forth with their commands, the battle ensuing to their directions. Grimer grabbed Squirtle by its shoulders and pulled it into it. Squirtle propelled itself from his grasp with a strong water-gun, and grimer retaliated by hurling several globs of goo, the last one making solid contact with the diving turtle. It rolled across the concrete, make-shift arena, and as per Green's directive pushed itself high into the air with a jet of water. Once gravity took its hold, she ordered a Rapid Spin that was critically empowered by the distance between the two. Grimer rounded itself into a crater, and caught the spinning Pokémon, enveloping her Pokémon in murk. Ash ordered Grimer to hold it as long as it could, while Green helplessly shouted for Squirtle to escape this way or that, with no success. Ash was sure of his victory when Green ordered it to use Mud Sport. Grimer grew larger as Squirtle filled him with water, until suddenly globs of Grimer were flown into the air, made thinner and muddier by Squirtle's diluting water-gun. Grimer cried out as Squirtle escaped, and Green followed up with a Headbutt that sent the hulk of Grimer careening into a parked car. The doors were forcefully knocked into the car, looking like it had been T-boned at high speeds. Ash returned his Pokémon, while Green shouted for joy. They heard a window slide open as somebody yelled at them for the noise they were making. Ash was sure if it was their car then they might have tried to kill the two of them, but when Green started making death threats at the hands of Team Rocket, they quickly pulled their head back inside.
