Welcome back! Today, we cover Chapter 4, in which the group finds themselves bugged by a fairly major problem. Now, without further ado, let us begin.
Chapter 4: Flight Of The Z4
First, we see that Orange is showing a strong reluctance to have the origin of his fear of Bug-types explained. There is a reason he fears Bug-types, which will eventually be explained, but for now, you'll just have to live with him stopping all of Violet's attempts to explain it to Red.
Enter Jimmy, the Bug Catcher. I wasn't sure if Flutters's little maneuver with String Shot to counter Weedle's Poison Sting was a bit much, but I personally liked it. I like getting creative with Pokémon and their moves, especially in the case of Pokémon that don't have a lot of options to work with. Hell, I once thought up a Contest appeal that a Wynaut or Wobbuffet could do, involving Charm and Splash.
By the way, for this fic, I get all the Pokédex info (for the official Pokémon, anyway) from R/B/Y/Stadium/FR dex entries, though Weedle was an exception- that bit about its sense of smell? That's from R/S/E. I just had to include it. And you'll see why later on.
And now we have Jimmy sending out his unruly and disobedient Z4. The reason Z4 doesn't obey him is because he just snuck up on it and captured it while it was asleep, without so much as a battle. Though this doesn't matter to some Pokémon (as you'll find out later), it's kind of a big deal with Z4 (which I pronounce "zee four", by the way).
Violet cares deeply for her Pokémon, as you can see here, for she's braving a swarm of Z4 to rescue her Caterpie. Flutters, meanwhile, picks up on this and returns the favor by choosing that moment to evolve into Metapod.
And as the ominous, shadowy figure approaches the group, I bid you adieu! :P Chapter 5 is next, so stay tuned!
