Just what I expected. Charizard do tend to be as stubborn as they are tough, and this one was no exception. It was meaner and tougher than any Charizard I've seen before, the way it snarled and seemed to shake the ground. No way I can escape it without a fight, but I had no option but to. Elisa did offer me a Pokedoll, which gave me a great chance of escaping, though could I waste the money? I was a bit unwilling to spend the money, and with great reason.
It all goes back to my childhood. You see, I apparently (I actually have no idea of my place of origin due to a childhood event) grew up in this obscure region back who knows where. The place I go back to is the lake. Growing up there, I soon learned of the lake's owners money problem. They had to cut several corners and save in all possible areas, which obviously would affect me considering the lake was the only place I could consider home.
$500 doesn't seem like much though, and it couldn't do much harm to me in the future, right?
Anyway, right then and there, without a word, I took out the appropriate cash for getting a Pokedoll, computing the input and output of money in my head:
'$15650 is my current amount, right? So, if I were to take $500 from it, then I would have $15150. Woah, that is still a lot."
I seriously hoped I did make the right decision.
