Battle of Magikarp
That Magikarp, the one i thought so lowly of in the beginning. Who knew that it would prove to be the most useful Pokemon i ever caught...
I was in Olivine city, fishing for a Pokemon to help me surf. Yes, there were Krabby, but i wanted something else. Sadly, all i could reel in was Magikarp. Finally, i gave in. I reeled in and saw it, a Magikarp. I grabbed a pokeball off my belt and chucked it into the air. A flash of red and there stood my partner from the beginning, a Pikachu named Sparky. “Thundershock,” I said.
Sparky closed her eyes and electricity began to form at her cheeks. She let out a cry and shot the electricity towards the Magikarp. I prepared to order another attack, but the Magikarp fainted. I grabbed another pokeball and caught the Magikarp. This was too easy. The only problem was, i already had six Pokemon. I finally selected a Stantler named Buck to send back.
I reached into my bag and pulled out a disc. An HM that would teach the Magikarp surf. I decided to call the Magikarp fish as i called on him to come out of his pokeball. I stuck the HM to his head, but it did nothing. I was surprised, this fish pokemon couldn’t learn surf! I took my HM back jut as someone laughed. I turned around and saw a person that thought i would never meet, Red. The champion that practically lives on Mt. Silver! “I see you are having some problems there, as your Magikarp can’t learn surf,” Red said.
Thanks for stating the obvious,” I muttered. Red smiled, then grabbed a pokeball.
“Tell you what son, I like to take risks. If you can beat my second strongest Pokemon, Charizard, i will give you this Lapras I caught the other day. What do you say?” he asked. I nodded and smiled. I returned the Magikarp and ran across the sand.
“I hope your ready for Butterfree!” I yelled. He just laughed and sent out Charizard. I couldn't figure out why he was laughing, until i realized the types. “Buttrfree, run!” I shouted. The Butterfly did a one-hundred and eighty decrees turn and bolted.
“Chase it down and fire blast!” he yelled. The Charizard was faster, I closed my eyes, not wanting to see the results. I felt a heat wave, and i knew it was over before it began. I opened my eyes and lifted Butterfree’s pokeball. I grabbed a second pokeball that belonged to my Pidgeotto.
“Use fly!” I commanded, thinking i had him. Pidgeotto flew up higher than the clouds before starting his decent. As he was coming down towards the charizrd, Red spoke.
“Fire Blast again.” I did not know why he wanted to use that attack again untill i saw the results. It was too late for Pidgeotto to dodge, he flew head on into the attack. All that was there was a fried bird. I returned him and called upon my third Pokemon, Tauros. I figured my Tauros was about equal strength until we actually called our moves.
He knew a ™, this was not good. I also knew that like Pidgeotto, it was too late for Tauros to dodge. He ran head on into the fist. Tauros crumpled the second he made impact. I recalled him and grabbed yet another pokeball. Raticate. It wasn’t a smart move, but i wasn’t thinking straight. “Hyper fang!” I yelled. Raticate ran up an opened its mouth, probably the worst thing it had ever done. Red didn’t say anything, Charizard just shot his fist right inside of Raticates mouth. Focus Blast. Instead of crumpling, Raticate flew backwards and landed at my feet. I returned him and grabbed my last pokemon. I tossed the pokeball and Sparky appeared. I hoped i had a chance.
“Thundershock!” I yelled. The bolt of lightning flew at Charizard, but somehow Charizard dodges and flew at Pikachu. I shut my eyes, knowing that this whole battle was over. Wait, there was one pokemon left. It was weak, but i tried it anyway. “Go, Magikarp!” I shouted The fish appeared and just flopped on the ground. Red smiled.
“This will be easy. Charizard just pick it up and drop it,” Red commanded. The Charizard picked
up Magikarp and dropped it, but somehow Magikarp stayed alive. What happened next is crazy. Magikarp’s eyes turned red, the it’s whole body turned white. It grew and grew, becoming a Gyrados. I had a plan. I reached into my bag and pulled out an HM.
“Use this and then use surf!” I shouted. Gyrados go the HM and instantly learned surf. Then the Serpent got a wall of water to crash on Charizrd. The water cleared, and Charizard laid unmoving.
Red smiled and walked off. I knew why i didnt get the Lapras. I guess Magikarp’s aren’t so bad...
