"Phanpy and Pidgeot," Merla said.
Lila added, "I'll be using Riolu and Braviary."
"Okay, Merla, go on it. Lila, I'm sorry, but I forgot to mention....... You might need to wait with the oddballs." said the Guide, pointing to Bianca, Cheren, and a few others. And N.
Meanwhile, Genevieve had made it to Lyla. "I'll see how tough you are.... with my beloved plants!" she said, engaging in battle. (There are two Breeders, a set of Twins, and, optionally, an Ace Trainer.)
N shook his head. "Of course. But I know who I need." he said. "Zekrom."
Meanwhile, Lyla lost to Genevieve. "Good match. Here's your badge and TM!" she said, handing over the Grass Knot TM and the Leaf Badge.
Lila crossed her arms. "You seriously want to use- even if it was possible to catch- Zeckrom in the lowest level gym in Unova??"
Merla went to Lyla. "Let's be formal here..." she muttered.
"I, Merla Lase, challenge you, Lyla, gym leader of Striaton City, to a battle!" She sent out Phanpy.
N sighed. "No. To save the Pokemon from Trainers like you, Lila." he said as Cheren was called into the gym.
"Great! Now, I'll see how tough you are.... with my beloved plants!" said Lyla as she sent out Petilil.
"Petilil, dodge it, then use Leech Seed!" said Lyla.
"Hey, Bianca, Lila, Lily, I got my Leaf Badge!!!" said Genevieve, showing her new badge to all of them.
"We can't let that hit!" Merla exclaimed, and Phanpy leapt out of the way at the last moment. "Your power grows each time, so... Rollout again!" She shouted, and the Phanpy obeyed.
"Nice!" Lila said.
"Petilil, dodge it, then use Giga Drain!!!" said Lyla, and Petilil obeyed.
"And I got the Grass Knot TM." said Genevieve, pulling out her TM.
"Petilil, dodge it, then use Giga Drain again!" said Lyla.
"Lila Blue may enter the gym." said the Guide.
Petilil fainted. "No.... My ace, now, Servine! Wrap!" Lyla called as she sent out Servine.
