I swallowed hard as Chainy laid out my options--Lita battle the Slaking, where she would have next to no chance of winning, pony up the cash for a Poke Doll, which was looking increasingly more attractive the more the Slaking pounded on the shield, or bail out entirely. Bailing out was the last thing I wanted to do, and I wanted to make sure I got my money's worth.
"What do you think, Lita?" I asked.
"Pi pi pichu pichu!" she replied "Pi pichu pi!"
I searched through my pockets for what change I had. "Remind me again how much a Poke Doll is?" I asked Chainy as I scooped together coins.
