Preparing the attack

I looked in the direction of my target, he remained still, unaware of how close I was getting. The tall grass didn’t allow me to see him clearly, anything but his outline and shadow. I took a few deep breaths in order to calm myself and keep a clear mind, and it was only then…

Interference

I could see what looked like a blue ball atop some tall grass, not far from where I had just picked up an item. No, not a blue ball, it was a hat. There was someone inside that tall grass, probably a trainer since I could hear what sounded like battle sounds. He didn’t seem…

Another step, another item

The path was no more than a bridge of earth, with small walls on the edges, built to avoid any unnecessary dangers I assumed. There seemed to be more than enough peril within the numerous patches of tall grass that filled the path. I was so distracted with my surroundings that I didn’t even notice…

The first of many

I reached the cycle road underpass easily enough, no muss no fuss. The path ahead was full of tall grass, providing the perfect opportunity to gather battle experience. A wild electrike jumped at me as soon as I disturbed the grass and I called on riolu, not to fight but to gather some experience. The…

Rearrange and redeploy

The sun disappeared below the horizon and for the first time that day I felt tired, so much so that I couldn’t hold back a mighty yawn. It was time to call it a day. The trip back into town was fast and without incident, no trainer or wild pokémon wanted to have a late…

About time

It took me two fights to get out of that little patch of grass, maybe due to its location the pokémon were unusually aggressive. Nothing I couldn’t handle. None of the pokémon I faced were a match for me or even worth capturing. By the end of the second battle I was recalling my pokémon…

Berry care

Turns out this maze wasn’t exatcly a maze after all, just a few hedges thrown together. I found the exit in no time and a group of berry bushes along with it. I picked the three and decided to plant just one, so that in case no one managed to pluck the berries whent they…

Finders keepers

I was about to leave the pair to their own devices, their respective training, when a glint caught my eye, a small reflection from something half buried in the dirt, something that had been there for quite a while and yet these trainers either did not find it or utterly ignored it. I moved closer…

Notes and hits

This was great, just what I needed, to cross what seemed to be another maze. I followed the corridor and had not taken seven steps before I two trainers approached me from the sides. One of them jumped at me, missing my face with his feet by a few inches. – Now that is more…

Undisturbed

The noise, the battle and even the tantrum that scared away any wild animal life in the vicinity, the meditating man remained still with his eyes closed, immune to any outside interference. I had the distinct feeling that the world could end right now and this mand would not notice. – That was quite a…

Fishy business

The road was not that long and I soon found myself facing a body of water and no way to cross it. I was not alone. There were two men staring into the water, one seemed to be meditating peacefully while the other one was further away and grumbling, if one could call it that….

Caller action

My opponent resumed their play, not far from where the twins were laughing, and I could see the perfume lady just waltzing around. All of them were just waiting around in this road, almost like they were waiting to ambush wandering trainers…. or maybe I was just being paranoid. My pokénav sounded off, signaling an…
