Title: Leaving Vigoton
bigtukker - November 5, 2010 01:37 PM (GMT)
With his first badge in his case, Andrew wandered on Route 2. He had a lot of leveling to do.

Ahead of you, the trees began to become more frequent, and soon you were indisputably in the forest. Ahead of you were two paths, one to the left and one to the right. Either one seemed fine to travel on.
bigtukker - November 6, 2010 10:56 PM (GMT)
Andrew decided to let random.org decide the path (love breaking the 4th wall :P). random.org decided Andrew had to go left, so he went right.
Bluto - November 7, 2010 09:31 PM (GMT)
(Fourth wall? What is this fourth wall you speak of? ;) )
The forest became thicker and thicker, and all was quiet. How long had you been walking? A minute? An hour? Who knows?
..well, you do. It's been roughly 2-3 minutes since you passed the fork in the road. Ahead you could see fairly large pinecones. Hanging from a maple tree. How strange.
bigtukker - November 7, 2010 11:17 PM (GMT)
(Google it and you'll now)
Andrew shrugged and passed by, not really disturbed by the pinecones.
Helios - November 10, 2010 09:04 PM (GMT)
Your ablilty to ignore said pinecones was severly reduced when one fell on your head.
Judging by how much it had hurt, this was larger than a typical pinecone...
Guest - November 16, 2010 10:26 AM (GMT)
"Ouch!" Andrew exclaimed, rubbing his head. "That hurt!"
He examined the pinecone. Perhaps it isn't a pinecone, but a Pineco!

Helios - November 16, 2010 08:56 PM (GMT)
You noticed a blueish hue to the object, and this confirmed your suspicions. With a shout of "Pine pine CO!" it turned around, so you could see its eyes.
It glared at you, mad that you had disturbed its graceful fall.
bigtukker - November 18, 2010 10:36 AM (GMT)
"Ehhmm," Andrew shuttered, while taking a step back, "I'm sorry, Pineco,"
Helios - November 18, 2010 06:09 PM (GMT)
By backing down, the Pineco saw you as submitting to its might. Confidently, it began to hop back into the forest, proud that it had intimidated a human trainer.
bigtukker - November 18, 2010 07:17 PM (GMT)
Andrew felt stupid. "Man, I can't let me get scared for a Pineco! Tangela! I choose you! Sleeppowder!"
Helios - November 19, 2010 05:22 AM (GMT)
The confident Pineco was caught unaware by the attack, causing it to fall fast asleep, much to the amusement of the other Pineco in the tree.
bigtukker - November 19, 2010 03:57 PM (GMT)
"Use Constrict" Andrew ordered eagerly
Helios - November 19, 2010 04:35 PM (GMT)
Pineco continued to snooze as Tangela got in a free hit.
bigtukker - November 19, 2010 10:15 PM (GMT)
"Keep constricting it!" Andrew yelled.
Helios - November 20, 2010 01:45 AM (GMT)
Pineco was constricted yet again.
But this time, it was able to wake up. Angry and startled, it used a powerful tackle attack.
bigtukker - November 21, 2010 04:24 PM (GMT)
"Constrict it once more!" Andrew yelled.
Helios - November 21, 2010 09:18 PM (GMT)
Constrict squeezed the Pineco yet again, and another Tackle was used after it broke free.
bigtukker - November 21, 2010 09:40 PM (GMT)
"Use Constrict to finish the job!" Andrew yelled.
Helios - November 21, 2010 11:16 PM (GMT)
Pineco fainted from this last attack. 5 exp to Tangela.
Having learned its lesson to not fall on people, the fainted Pineco rolled off of the path and rested where you could still see it.
bigtukker - November 24, 2010 02:54 PM (GMT)
"Okay, good work Tangela," Andrew said making Tangela return in the red beam emerging from the Poke Ball. Andrew passed the Pineco, not really interested in catching it.
Helios - November 24, 2010 06:52 PM (GMT)
The forest was becoming quite dense around you, but the path was well maintained and easy to follow.
You saw a Spinarak break the forest cover to your right, aiming for the forest on your left.
bigtukker - November 25, 2010 02:23 PM (GMT)
"Okay, a Spinarak!" Andrew said, "Let's give it a try, Buizel! Use Pursuit!"
Helios - November 25, 2010 04:42 PM (GMT)
The Spinarak jumped, startled, and hustled into the forest for the added cover.
But Buizel, thanks to the move it was using, pursued it to tthe edge of the forest. It hit, but the Spinarak raised its abdomin, showing the face markings. The intimidating gesture sharply lowered Buizel's speed.
Then the Spinarak ran deeper into the forests.
Only a pursuit would be able to catch it, but it would take the battle into the forest. If you did that, you'd have to go into the forest yourself.
100% (Spd -2)
bigtukker - November 29, 2010 06:59 PM (GMT)
"And now use Water Pulse!" Andrew followed up.
Helios - November 29, 2010 08:54 PM (GMT)
The wild Spinarak fled into the forest, as only Pursuit would have been able to catch it.
bigtukker - December 3, 2010 09:36 PM (GMT)
"Darn it," Andrew said softly, he continued walking after returning Buizel into his Poke Ball.
Helios - December 3, 2010 10:41 PM (GMT)
There was a small gust of wind as you continued forward, and you realized that it must be approaching dusk.
You continued walking forward until you saw a figure in the distance. It appeared to be a person headed your way, but they were too far away to know for sure.
bigtukker - December 6, 2010 09:45 AM (GMT)
Andrew approached the figure.
Helios - December 7, 2010 05:15 AM (GMT)
It was indeed a person, but they were cloaked in a black hooded sweatshirt. As you approached him, he muttered "sup." and kept walking, not even lifting his head.
bigtukker - December 8, 2010 01:50 PM (GMT)
"Ehr..." Andrew said "nothing really, you?" he started following the man.
Helios - December 8, 2010 05:26 PM (GMT)
The man noticed your odd 180 degree turn, and found it quite strange that you were following him.
"Uh, what the heck do you want?" he said abrasively.
bigtukker - December 10, 2010 01:57 PM (GMT)
Andrew was kinda creeped out, but recovered fast.
"I don't know, it's kinda lonely here, ya know?" Andrew said. "I thought, well maybe we could talk while traveling, or better having a battle."
Helios - December 10, 2010 04:36 PM (GMT)
"I'm obviously going in the other direction. So uh, yeah, use your head. Get lost." he said, while continueing towards Vigoton.
bigtukker - December 10, 2010 10:01 PM (GMT)
"Okay, good point," Andrew admitted and continued his path, while murmuring "no need to be emo,"
Helios - December 10, 2010 10:06 PM (GMT)
The boy heard your last point.
"Well, if you wanna be a jerk and try and insult me." he said while swiftly turning around.
"Go, Houndour. Sick whatever pokemon he sends out." he ordered.
bigtukker - December 11, 2010 10:51 AM (GMT)
"Okay! Buizel, I choose you!" Andrew exclaimed and Buizel was sent out of the Poke Ball. "Use Water Pulse!"
Helios - December 11, 2010 10:59 PM (GMT)
"Of course." the guy commented on your type choice. "Smog."
Houndour went forward courageously, diving through the water pulse until it finally made it through and summoned forth a noxious cloud of smoke, startling Buizel and poisoning it as well.
100% - 23% - 3% = 74%
bigtukker - December 12, 2010 08:51 AM (GMT)
"Okay!" Andrew yelled, "Water Pulse, once more!"
