Chapter 3- Doduo's First Match
"Doduo! Use your Tackle attack!" Steve yelled at the top of his lungs. Doduo
immediately reacted by launching itself at the Pidgey on the path ahead. He
made contact, making the Pidgey stagger back into a tree on the grassy
roadside. "I gottcha!" he barked in triumph and threw a pokéball at the bird.
Instead of his expected easy victory, he was appalled to find that the Pidgey
very easily flew away, leaving him in a cloud of dust.
"Oh, and it was 'so' close!" a large voice said from his back side, which was
followed by cackling.
"Come out and fight me!" said Steve, confident that he could take on anything
that would be thrown at him.
"Fine kid, hope you ain't been eatin, cause I'm gonna take you to lunch!"
Steve was hit in the back by a boot, sending him tumbling into the tree,
causing his lip to bleed. He staggered up, wiped off his lip and gritted his
teeth, "Don't you have pokémon?" his voie was scolding, but then started to
tremble as his came abreast his challenger, a tall, lean, person with a jet
black suit on.
"Hah! I should've known! Heh... go... Zambo!" out popped a small Voltorb.
"Uh-oh... electric type... >gulp< I better be cautious! Go... Doduo!!!" he
heaved the pokéball, and the purple beam crossed the field to reveal Doduo..
"Voltorb... Tackle!" yelled the mysterious man.
"Errg... Use your Quick Attack... Doduo!" The Voltorb heaved its entire
entire body at the bird, who jumped over him, and ricocheted into the
sphere's back, rolling it into a small ditch.
"No! Blast it ... use Thundershock, Zambo!"
"Crap," muttered Steve "Um... Use Quick Attack!" the Voltorb made contact
with the once again leaping Doduo, sending the voltage right into the bird,
blasting it bak down to the dirt laden earth. It lay there, in a small crater
created by the impact.
"Now Doduo, Tackle!" yelled Steve. Doduo struggled to get up, but managed to
make contact with the ball, nearly knocking both out.
"Oh no.... Voltorb... SELF DESTRUCT...!!!" he fell to the ground, covering
his head with his hands. Doduo looked at Voltorb, as it turned yellow then
gold, until a bright glow surrounded the area in its brightness. Suddenly,
the Voltorb let out a cry,
It turned black, then sparks shot out in every direction and Voltorb shot
out a shock wave into everything, sending Doduo, Steve, and the other trainer
"Huh? Did we win?" Steve stood up, rubbing bruises and cuts all over his arms
and legs. The trainer and his Voltorb had disappeared, but not without
leaving a mark. Doduo was badly hurt, laying spewed out on the ground. Steve
gasped. He kicked at a rock and then picked up his pokéball, sucked up Doduo,
and ran off towards the next city, and pokémon center.
