I made my way out of the tall grass, crossing paths with several wild pokémon I had already seen and captured. It was time to move on from this place, to search for new hunting grounds and new pokémon.
A white figure could be seen coming down the road towards me, bathed in the light of the setting sun. It was Birch.
He came right up to me, shaking my hand and asking how was I doing. In fact he was surprised to see me this far off already and that he was actually looking for May.
I had my pokénav out and Birch noticed it immediately, touching his to mine and exchanging contacts.
He told me goodbye and went on to Slateport, wishing me good luck on my voyage.
