Part 29

My Roxy sense is tingling!



Oh good, I was worried you were gonna punch me in the face again.

Bugsy's the gym leader here, too?

Why are all these Pokémon getting sick?

Maybe I Will!

I beat you three times now, tho- OH GOD STOP

That explains all the seagulls and the dried fish carcasses!

Yeah! Fish are cute.

You are ooooooold.

I want cute fishies!


I've been good! I swear! Wait, who are you and why are you telling me this?

I have a Wooper!

I'm pretty sure Heavy G does, I mean the Pokédex said they do.

What about my Wooper?

Fishing is boring.


Er.. it looks.... I dunno.


Magikarp #129

Fish Pokémon
Height: 2'11" Weight: 22 lbs
Habitat: Freshwater Types: Water
Magikarp is virtually useless in battle. It is a pathetic excuse for a pokémon that is only capable of flopping and splashing. This behavior prompted scientists to undertake research into it. As a result, it is considered to be weak. It is virtually worthless in terms of both power and speed. For no reason, it jumps and splashes about, making it easy for predators like Pidgeotto to catch it in mid-jump. It is the most weak and pathetic pokémon in the world. However, it is actually a very hardy pokémon that can survive in any body of water no matter how polluted it is. Its swimming muscles are weak, so it is easily washed away by currents. In places where water pools, you can see many Magikarp deposited there by the flow. It may jump high on rare occasions, but never more than seven feet. In the distant past, it was somewhat stronger than the horribly weak descendants that exist today.

Man that entry.. poor Magikarp. It sucks so bad Scientists did research to figure out why it sucks so bad.

So boooooring.

Wait that's not a fish.

Krabby #098

River Crab Pokémon
Height: 1'04" Weight: 14.3 lbs
Habitat: Freshwater Types: Water
Krabby live on beaches, burrowed inside holes dug into the sand. On sandy beaches with little in the way of food, these pokémon can be seen squabbling with each other over territory. If it is unable to find food, it will absorb nutrients by swallowing a mouthful of sand. Its pincers are not only powerful weapons, they are used for balance when walking sideways. If it loses a pincer, it somehow becomes incapable of walking sideways. The pincers grow back if they are torn out of their sockets. If it senses danger approaching, it cloaks itself with bubbles from its mouth so it will look bigger.

I'mma go get her right now!

also Cut and Surf.

I doubt it's really called that.

Oh god I can smell vomit...

And next time we'll scale it and look for the Olivine City Gym Leader.
