A Master in the Making: Part 3: Pallet Pit Stop
by Seth Bowman (firstname.lastname@example.org)
the trio made it out of the forest without another Spearow run-in,
although they saw some fly past on several occasions.
Zeth was almost sure he saw a Fearow once, but none of them
wanted to get close enough to check.
"There's Pallet Town," Zeth pointed at the small town,
"Let's find that pokemon center, if this town even has one."
Pallet did have a center, but when they arrived at the small
building the door had a closed sign on it.
"Why is a pokemon center closed in the middle of the
day?" Zeth asked, looking at another sign underneath the first.
"Gone to Prof. Oak's Lab - Nurse Joy" He read.
"Well it looks like we'll have to go to the lab then, guys. Come on."
As they neared the lab, they suddenly heard the sound of an
explosion coming from the
back, followed by another, and another. "What's going on over there!" Zeth yelled over the
noise. As they ran around
the corner, they saw a Meowth hot-air balloon rising and a Charizard
flying straight towards it. They
people in the balloon were frantically throwing something at the
Charizard, but it just knocked the objects back at them. Something
landed nearby, and Zeth turned to look.
Some kind of bomb had just fallen next to them!
They hit the ground as the explosive went off, spraying them with
shrapnel and filling the air with smoke.
When the smoke cleared, the balloon was gone, and the Charizard
was flying around causing havoc. Ignoring
the angry dragon, Zeth checked to see if his pokemon were injured in the
blast, but they didn't seem to have any life-threatening injuries
although some of the gashes were pretty bad.
He turned back and saw the Charizard's scorched trainer recall
move], Zeth thought, [that
lizard was doing as much damage as the bombers].
Suddenly, he recognized the trainer as the kid from the Pokemon
League. [Ash something.
I should go say hi].
At the moment though, he
needed to find Nurse Joy, which wasn't hard.
She had just gone over to check on the kid's Pidgeotto, which had
apparently been injured in the fight.
"Nurse Joy," Zeth called, running over to her. "My
pokemon need your help, they were injured by one of those bombs."
He pointed at Florio and Eva.
"How terrible." She looked at the kid, "Don't
worry Ash, your Pidgeotto will be fine, Professor Oak can deal with its
injuries." She rushed
over to Zeth's pokemon, leaving him with Ash and his companions.
Remembering his Spearow, Zeth called to Nurse Joy and tossed her
"So, who are you?" asked a girl, who was standing
"I'm Zeth, a pokemon trainer from Valencia Island.
I was looking for Nurse Joy, but I never expected to walk into a
"I'm Misty, he is Brock," she pointed at a teen who was
following Nurse Joy around as she patched up Zeth's pokemon, "and
"I saw him in the Indigo Pokemon League Games before I left.
He's the one with the Muk, right?
"Yeah, that was me!" Ash said proudly.
"I made the top sixteen!
That's what this party was about before Team Rocket decided to
"So that's who those people were.
Nasty bunch, aren't they." He glanced back at Nurse Joy who
was motioning for him to come over.
"I'll see you guys later, I need to go see Nurse Joy right
"We'll be here for a little while.
Oh, and if you're hungry, you can have some food, if you can find
a table that hasn't been knocked over!"
Nurse Joy told Zeth that his pokemon would be fine, but she
wanted to take them to the center so they could rest.
"Go ahead," Zeth said.
"I'll come around in an hour or so."
He handed her Florio and Eva's pokeballs, then headed for a table
of food that had somehow survived the assault, even though it was
surrounded by small craters and debris....
After his meal, he located Ash and his friends again.
The were just about to leave when he found them.
"Hey, guys, hold on."
he called. "Where
are you going off to?"
"Professor Oak asked us to go to Valencia Island and bring
back some kind of pokeball from Prof. Ivy," Ash said.
"He says that for some reason, it won't transport like a
"Oh, that ball, I remember asking Prof. Ivy about it myself.
If I had known that Prof. Oak wanted it, I would have brought it
"You know Prof. Ivy?" asked Brock.
"Of course I do, I'm from Valencia Island.
I will warn you, there are some nasty Spearow along the trail
back down, so be careful. Anyway,
don't let me stop you from getting started.
I have to get going; I'm headed for the Pewter City Gym to earn a
"Pewter City? That's where I'm from," said Brock,
"I was the leader of that gym. As a matter of fact I still have a
Boulderbadge with me, If you want we could have a quick match before we
