Chapter 18: Race To The Gem

Pichu woke up and got up. Tepig was still sleeping, with drool coming out of his mouth.

“Wow,” said Pichu, to himself. “This is the first time I’m going to wake Tepig.” He put his hands on Tepig. “Wake up,” Pichu said.

“Oh…” complained Tepig. Then he stopped complaining and wiped the drool off his face. “Thanks for walking me up. I guess I was very tired last night,” Tepig said.

“I guess you were,” said Pichu.

“Okay, ready to meet with the others?” asked Tepig.

“Yeah, I’m ready,” said Pichu. The two walked to the main area and met with their teammates and Mewtwo.

“Okay, your next mission is to get the next gem, which is in a cave southwest of here,” said Mewtwo and he gave the team the map of where it is. “Good luck on your mission,” Mewtwo said. The team packed berries with them, headed outside and started walking.

“So, I can’t wait to get the other seven scrolls,” said Snivy.

“Me too,” said Oshawott.

“I can’t wait to see what happens after that!” shouted Pidove.

“Yeah, me too!” shouted Axew. “But first, we have to get all these gems.”

“I know,” said Pichu. “And that’s a lot of gems.”

“Yeah, I know,” said Tepig. After an hour of walking, they ended up at the cave, where a Spearow and a Patrat stood.


“Hey, were looking for a gem at the bottom of this cave,” said Snivy.

“Oh, I know where that is!” shouted Spearow.

“Yeah, me too!” shouted Patrat. “Hey, why don’t we have a race to the gem? Patrat asked. If one of you gets to it first, you have it, but is we get to it first, we’ll have it!”

“Oh, um, okay,” said Oshawott.

“Okay, ready, set, GO!” shouted Spearow and he and Patrat started running in the cave.

“Hey, wait for us!” shouted Pidove. The team ran in the cave and caught up with Spearow and Patrat.

“Oh, no, they caught up to us!” shouted Spearow. Spearow started flying faster.

“Let’s see who’s faster!” shouted Snivy. Snivy ran even faster. They ended up at a big area of the cave.

“Look, I see the gem!” shouted Axew. Spearow flew even faster towards the gem.

“Oh, no, he’s going to take it!” shouted Pichu.

“I don’t think so!” shouted Snivy and he ran as fast as he could and took the gem right before Spearow can.

“Oh no!” shouted Patrat.

“Take that!” shouted Snivy, when suddenly a Loudred jumped on top of him. “AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!” cried Snivy and the gem fell dropped out of his hand.

“I’LL BE TAKING THIS!” yelled Loudred and took the gem.

“Hey, this isn’t fair, we won!” shouted Snivy.

“WON WHAT?” yelled Loudred.

“A race!” shouted Tepig.

“WELL THAT’S TOO BAD!” Loudred yelled.

“You idiot, take this!” shouted Oshawott and she used razor shell on Loudred, but missed.

“OH, SO IT’S A FIGHT YOU WANT, HUH!?” yelled Loudred. “TAKE THIS!” He stomped Oshawott in the face.

“AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWW!” cried Oshawott.

“Oshawott, no!” shouted Tepig. Tepig jumped and used flamethrower on Loudred.

“AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH, IT BURNS!” cried Loudred and he used stomp on Tepig.

“OOOOOOOWWWWWWWW!” cried Tepig and he landed on the floor.

“Noooo!" shouted Pidove and he used fly on Loudred.

“THAT’S NOT GOING TO WORK!” Loudred yelled and he used stomp again on Pidove.

“NNNNNNGGAAAAAAAHHHH!” shouted Pidove.

“YOU DIRTBAG!” yelled Snivy and jumped. “THIS IS FOR TAKING THAT GEM FROM US!” He used leaf blade on Loudred and Snivy cut him.

“GGGGGGAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!” cried Loudred and stated bleeding and the gem fell out of his hand. He couldn’t move with his wound.

“We’ll be taking this!” shouted Snivy. Snivy gave Tepig, Oshawott and Pidove oran berries.

“Thanks,” said Tepig, Oshawott and Pidove as they were eating their oran berries.

“You welcome,” said Snivy and he gave an oran berry to Loudred. “You can have that!”

“Bye!” shouted Spearow and Patrat.

“Bye, I hope we meet again!” shouted Tepig and the team went back to Mewtwo.

“Good. You’ve got the gem! Here is more gold as your reward!” shouted Mewtwo.

“ALRIGHT!” shouted the team in happiness. Tepig’s stomach growled.

“Oh, I guess I’m hungry,” said Tepig, putting his hand on his belly. “Let’s go eat now.”

“Yeah,” said Pichu, laughing. They team went to the dining room. Tepig ate his food really fast.

“You sure like to eat fast,” said Pichu, who he and the rest started eating their food.

“I know,” said Tepig. Then the team went to bed.

“That was a fun race, wasn’t it?” asked Tepig.

“Yeah, I’m glad we won. If we didn’t, we never would have gotten that gem,” said Pichu.

“Yeah,” said Tepig. “Okay, goodnight.”

“Okay, goodnight,” said Pichu and they went to sleep. End of chapter 18.
