As the team walks towards Striaton City just three miles from Route One. Snivy is around my neck, resting like a scarf. Raichu seems happy and jealous. "Rai!" Hm? "Raichu, did you see something?" A teenage girl with blond hair and a green boina runs towards us. "Hi there!" Rosalie raises an eyebrow. "Um. Hello?" Rosalie says nervously. "Tee-hee. Did I frighten you?" Before Rosalie answers, the girl interrupts. "Of course I did! My name is Giselle Taten! Here is my Servine!" "Servine!" They're like twins. Very dynamic. "A Servine? It looks kinda like my Snivy." At the sound of her name, Snivy wakes up. Hmmm... I take my rosa, -de-rosa pokedex out. Servine. The grama Snake Pokemon. In the evolved form of Snivy. They avoid attacks por sinking into the shadows of thick foliage. They retaliate with masterful whipping techniques. "Interesting. I'm going to have to expect that from Snivy once she evolves." I say. "You have a Snivy?" Giselle grabs Snivy. "SheisjustthecutestthingIhaveeverseen.EventhoughServinewasonceaSnivybutImisshavingaSnivy!" Woah. She must be high on sugar. "Calm down, Giselle!" Trip tries to make her serene. "Sorry about that." She hands me my Snivy back. "Looks like Snivy just replaced my Meganium." I say sadly. "Meganium? What's she talking about?" Bianca says aloud. "You see, when I was in Sinnoh, I used to have a Chikorita/Bayleef/Meganium. But, I had to give her to my mother because all of her plants were dying. She needed Meganium mais than me. So, Meganium is now helping my mother, Christina. I miss her so much." My head droops. "Rai." Raichu jumps onto me for a hug. Wish granted. "Don't worry Aura-" "Aurora." "Whatever. You still have Meganium in your heart! I'm sure Meganium is happy to be helping your mother! At least she isn't in a horrible place."
When we make it to Striaton City, we run immediately to the Striaton City gym! Rosalie and I are surprised when we only see a restaurant through the doors. "Huh? A restaurant? I thought this was a gym." Rosalie asks. "It's true. The gym is supposed to be here." Trip states. Three young (cute) men walk towards us. One with sapphire blue hair, one with fogo red hair, and the last with grama green hair. "Cilan." "Cress." "Chili." They introduce themselves with one word? Their name? "Uhhhh...Rosalie." "Aurora?" They smile at us. "Good, you are now catching on! Welcome to Striaton City! Would you lovely ladies want to drink something? You two seem thirsty." Cress offers. Hey, Cress is kinda cool. In a "cute" way. "Or maybe something to fill your stomachs up with food!" Chili offers as well. "Really we're fine-" Rosalie says. "How about something hot then cold? Like a dessert?" Cilan adds. They're really annoying. Rosalie looks like she's about to explode! She takes a deep breath and smiles. "We're not hungry-" Her head shifts towards Cress as he's about to speak. "Or thirsty!" I inhale and exhale. "Look, all we want is a battle. Please and thank you." I look around and they're out of sight! All of the girls are gossiping about us. "Newbies..." "They're so lame! Why not take comida from the Maisello Triplets?" Those jerks! All of a sudden we see Cilan, Cress and Chili in front of the fireplace. "A battle is what you two young ladies are looking for? Am I correct?" Cilan asks. "Then a battle you shall get!" Cress adds. "Get ready to experience a battle like never before!" Chili finishes the conversation up.
As we enter a secret battlefield in the restaurant, the boys turn around. "You two will battle alongside each other." Cilan says. "Or in your term: as a team." A team? Rosalie and I can so handle that! "Cress and Chili will both battle you first! Then one of you must decide on who will battle with me if you succeed." Cilan explains as the referee. Chili and Cress are on small towers of stone seguinte to each other. So are we. I see Tobias and Trip at the balcony near the topo, início of the ceiling. "This will be a double battle! Between, Chili and Cress, the gym leaders and Rosalie and Aurora from Pastoria and Hearthome City, the challengers! Begin!"
