AC rushed into the Pokecenter and handed the Pidgey to Nurse Joy. Nurse Joy told AC not to worry as she tended to the Pokemon's wounds. As AC waited, something struck his mind and he rushed out of the Pokecenter.
Several minutes later, he returned to the Pokecenter and saw Nurse Joy ready with the Pidgey. AC picked the Pidgey up and to his surprise, it did not try to peck this time. Apparently, it was thankful for what AC did. AC was also quite proud of the way the Pidgey fought and took out a newly purchased Pokeball. The Pidgey looked at it and did not struggle to let go. Soon, a red beam dematerialized the Pidgey and placed it inside the Pokeball.
The Pokeball moved three times before clicking. AC had caught his first Pokemon. He quickly called out the Pidgey. "Pidgey," he said, "This is Natu and Natu this is Pidgey." His two Pokemon had already met on the battlefield as foes, but this time they were friends. I can't believe I caught my first Pokeball, AC thought, But I've had enough action for one day. I should get some rest and meditation in prior to the big day tomorrow. I will have my gym battle. I should focus on some strategies as well.
His Pokemon followed him up to his room. He began to think about tomorrow and his newly caught Pidgey. He was going to face Brock, a rock-type user. His flying-Pokemon would be vulnerable. He needed a tactic and some sleep.
