Boy they weren’t kidding about the tall grass. I met a few travelers that warned about such dangers, wild pokémon roaming about, unseen.
A funny looking one appeared and even before I decided on how to act, Splash was out and about, anxious for some action. And sure enough, we beat the Lillipup to a pulp. Almost feel bad for it. Almost, but not quite, because the experience we earned allowed Splash to gain a level.
