Though Max had been alert from that point on, he was still taken by surprise when a Mudkip flew at him, landing on his head and causing him to stagger to one side.
"Oh hello! Sorry! I'm Katrina, what's your name? Welcome to the swamp! You are approaching Amethyst Village! How are you today? Are you tourists? Oh my, we almost never get tourists! You don't seem like you're moving!" She spoke very fast, all the while staying atop Max's head, who was too started to try and get the Mud Fish pokemon off.
