I could think straight in this heat. It had been the hottest all year and it was mid June. They predicted that it would be hotter later on in the week. I grabbed a piece of cloth and wiped my sweaty face. I hated hot days but I guess Zippy loved them. I looked in the corner of my room and Zippy was lying their enjoying the heat. I wish I had a water Pokemon to cool me down. I sighed and continued studying the piece of text right in front of me.
I was a Pokemon researcher and I had been given the task to revise a certain number of Pokemon abilities. I scrolled down the list and read the information. I still wonder why I joined to become a researcher, when I was a child my father had already chosen my fate. I couldn’t play physical games and the only challenging game I could play was Chess. I put down my piece of paper and then looked out into the local town. I saw children playing in the street, mini Pokemon battles. I sighed and looked at my watch,
“Another 3 more hours till I can go home” I said with very little effort
I looked over at Zippy and saw him yawn. I guess he was getting tired to. As I looked at my notes I heard a knock on the door. I looked up to find the Head Researcher. He was pretty small with white hair. He had glasses and a big bowler hat. I noticed that he was holding a folder with big red words “Classification”
“Joe, There has been a problem with experiment 602. He has broken out of the building and headed towards the nearby forest” explained the Head Researcher.
“Experiment 602?” I replied puzzled
“Read the folder and head out to the vans” said the Head Researcher. He dropped the folder on my desk and quickly walked out. I bent down to read the folder. I opened it up and then suddenly I realized what Experiment 602 was.
I quickly headed towards the place where the vans were kept. On the way I grabbed some keys from the gatehouse and continued to the vans. As soon as I reached the car park, I quickly got in the van and drove out of the car park.
The woods were about 10 minuets away if you running or walking and 5 minuets if you were driving. I looked ahead and saw a sign post to the Woods. I thought to myself, If Experiment 602 started to cause trouble it would be very hard to stop it. I suddenly noticed a trail of food leading to the forest. I decided to follow the trail of food and hope that it would lead to Experiment 602.
Within minuets I was outside the woods, I couldn’t go any further in the van because the shrub was getting a bit deep. I hoped out of the van and continued to follow the trail of food. I hadn’t been into this forest before because I wasn’t a fan of bug Pokemon. I noticed on my right was a swarm of Beedril feeding from some honey. Watching them gave me the shivers. I noticed ahead of me was a huge opening.
As I walked towards this opening I noticed that there was a sleeping Pokemon ahead of me. I carefully walked up to it trying not to wake it up. As I was walking up to it I noticed that it was a sleeping Munchlax. I looked around and saw a pile of food.
“Aww man, I followed a trail of food leading to a sleeping Munchlax” I kicked the toadstool which the Munchlax was sleeping on.
Suddenly, as I was walking away from the sleeping Munchlax, I heard a cry from behind me. I looked around and saw the Munchlax standing on the toadstool. I grabbed something from its mouth. It held it in his hands and a glow started to immerge. It jumped in the area and a huge beam appeared from his hands. I saw the beam come straight at me and as it was instinct I dodge the beam by diving on the floor. I quickly got up and ran further in the forest so I wouldn’t annoy the Munchlax any more.
I stopped to catch my breath, “I hope I lost that Munchlax, I still haven’t found Experiment 602, it’s also getting dark” I sat down on a tree stump and sighed. Maybe I wasn’t cut out to be a researcher. As I looked up into the sky I noticed a silhouette swinging in the trees. I remembered that Experiment 602 rarely moves about and that it spends most of its time asleep. I noticed its shape and knew that it was Experiment 602. I started to follow it. I kept looking up to see where it would make a turn or move. The suddenly it stopped and reached a watering hole. It landed and started to drink from the watering hole.
“Experiment 602, you need to come back to the lab, your still needed to do tests” I asked the Pokemon
“Slakkkk” replied the Slakoth
I noticed that Slakoth didn’t want to come back to the Lab, I mean if I was a Pokemon I wouldn’t want to either. I heard a familiar sound and it happened to be my cool funky ring tone.
“Hello, Joe speaking…… You want to abort Experiment 602? …….. I understand Sir”
I turned to Slakoth, who looked very happy outside. It then moved closer to me and started to sniff around me. It sniffed my bag then pawed it. I opened up my bag and Slakoth reached in and grabbed a Sitrus Berry and started to eat it.
“You like it? Wow you must be hungry” I said. I noticed above me was a Sitrus Tree and it had Sitrus berries hanging off. I reached up and picked a few from the branch.
“Here you go, enjoy” I knelt down and handed the berries to the young Slakoth. “Well there is some good news, you don’t have to go back to the lab, isn’t that good?”
Slakoth looked up and cried out. It then hopped back and stood like it wanted a battle. I realized that it wanted a battle.
“Alright here it goes, come out Zippy” I shouted from excitement “Use Flamethrower quickly”
I threw the Pokeball in the air and an Infernape appeared mid air. As soon as it landed it produced a huge amount of heat came from Zippys mouth. Slakoth jumped into the air and landed a scratch attack across Zippys mouth. It then started to hum. I noticed that it was using Amnesia, an attack that increased its special defense.
“Zippy uses a powerful Mach Punch now”
Zippy ran up towards the Slakoth and a blue glow formed around its fists. Slakoth tried to jump out of the way but Zippy Mach Punch managed to smack it to the ground. Slakoth tried to get up and just managed to, it must be on low health. Suddenly Slakoth cried out loud and started to glow. It looked like it was using the move Slack Off. Of course I knew that it would heal its health back to just over a half.
“Zippy, you’re doing great, use Flamethrower one more time”
Zippy nodded and started to produce a powerful heat blast from it mouth and was directed to Slakoth. Slakoth took the hit and manage to stay standing. It then used another scratch attack at Zippy, although it didn’t have enough power to go through with the attack.
“Ok Zippy, Have a rest, Go Pokeball”
Joe grabbed a Pokeball from his belt and threw it in the air towards Slakoth, as soon as the ball landed, Slakoth smiled before he was surrounded by a red beam from the Pokeball. It wobbled and wobbled then ……
