"Mount Moon! Full of nothing but Zubats and Clefaries!" Pinkie said, hopping around the stalagmites that flooded the cave. "Oooo look Fluttershy, there's some Clefaries right there!" Pinkie pointed at some Clefaries jumping around, saying their names over and over again. "I wonder what they could be doing." Fluttershy asked, watching the small Pokemon do a strange ritual. "Well, what ever the heck they're doing, I'm gonna catch one!" Pinkie ran over to the group of Pokemon, and grabbed one of her Pokeballs. She turned her hat backwards, "Pokeball go!" she threw it at one of the Clefaries, but the Clefary smacked the ball right back at her. "What the? Hey I wanted to catch you!" Pinkie leaped after it, "GET BACK HERE!" she chased it for a little bit, but gave up eventually. "Clefary, Clefary!" all the Pokemon chanted, waving their fingers back and forth. "DON'T LOOK AT THEM FLUTTERSHY!" Pinkie shielded her eyes. "oh my..this is bad.." Fluttershy just stood there and watched. "AHAHAHAH!" Pinkie looked over to see Team Rocket, holding a bunch of Clefaries. "No one will ever stop us from stealing all these Clefaries!" Rarity said. "You said it Miss Rarity, hmm what's wrong little guy?" Fancy held out a Clefary, as it was using Metronome. "Uhm, Rarity..I can't move!" Fancy stood perfectly still. "Oh yeah, that's a move called Metronome! It wags it's little finger, then does a random attack." Meowth said. "Well, I wonder what it'll do?" Rarity said, picking one up. "All of a sudden, I feel...sleepy..." Fancy, Meowth, Rarity, and Fluttershy all feel victim to sleep powder. "Holy cow, everypony is asleep! Come on Gummy, let's get Fluttershy and boogy on out of this place!" Pinkie lifted Fluttershy on her back, and trotted towards the end of Mount Moon. "Hey Pinkie! Wait up!" Pinkie turned around to see Rainbow Dash, panting. "Hey, I see you have the Bolder Badge, and the Gym Leader, well anyway, wanna have a Pokemon Battle?" Rainbow asked. "Okie Dokie Lokie!" Pinkie sent out Gummy first. "Alright, go Charmeleon!" "Woah, you've already got yourslef a Charmeleon! Way to go Dashie! Anyway, Gummy use Iron Tail!" Gummy's tail turned to a shiny iron, and smacked Charmeleon in the face. "Charmeleon use Flamethrower!" Charmeleon shot a blast of fire at Gummy, making him extra crispy. "Alright Gummy finish him of with a swift bite!" "Charmeleon, use Ember!" the two Pokemon went head to head, but in the process of them using their moves, they had knocked each other out. "Dang, well go Eevee!" Rainbow sent out a small Eeevee. "Alright, Butterfree go!" Pinkie sent out her butterfly Pokemon. "Alright Butterfree use stun spore!" Butterfree sent out a yellowish powder all over Eevee, stunning it. "Eevee use headbutt!" Eevee tried to do it's attack, but it was paralized, and could not move. "Butterfree use Gust!" Butterfree used it's powerful Gust attack and blew Eevee out, fainting it. "Empressive. You've beat me twice, maybe next time, I'll get ya!" Rainbow said, heading out of the tunnle. "That was fun!" Pinkie said, hugging Gummy. "Alright let's get out of here." Pinkie grabbed a hold of Fluttershy's mane, and dragged her along the dirty road. "Route 4! Come one sleepy head, I've got a sled!" Pinkie pulled out a wooden plank, and slumped Fluttershy ontop of it, and Pinkie hopping ontop of her. "LET'S GET GOIN!" Pinkie slapped the side of the wood, and she and Fluttershy dashed down the slop. "Pinkie...AHHH!" Fluttershy held onto Pinkie as she squealed. "Don't worry silly, we're just sleding." Pinkie said, steering the device. "So uhm..I see we're heading to Cerulean City, so you can get the Cascade Badge?" Fluttershy asked. "You bet! By the way, do you know who the gym leader there is?" Pinkie asked. "Well..her name is uhm Twilight Sparkle I think.. she's a smart purple pony, who acutally knows the Pokemon Leauge champion." Fluttershy said. The sled finally came to a stopping point at the end of the hill. "That pony over there looks a lot like her description!" Pinkie said, pointing at a pony fishing in the water. "HEY TWILIGHT!" Twilight looked away from her fishing pole to see the pink pony dashing right at her. "Look, if you're looking for a Cascade badge you'll have to go to the gym, and face my older brother, Shining Armor." she said, putting away her fishing pole. "After my brother engaged Celestia's niece Candence, she made him the gym leader of Cerulean City, and kicked me out." Twilight threw on her saddle bag, and started to trot towards Route 4. "Hey where are you going?" Pinkie asked. "I'm going back home in Viridian City, I don't want to be around this place anymore." "WAIT TWILIGHT! Maybe you should, you know, join me and Fluttershy?" Pinkie said, giving Twilight a big puppy face. Twilight sighed, "Well, if you do make it all the way to the Pokemon League Champion, I'll show her a piece of my mind." Twilight said, turning around. "Say, aren't you the gym leader of Pewter City?" Twilight asked Fluttershy. "Well, yes I am, but now my friend Angle will be running it, until I decide when to go back home." Fluttershy said. "So, what kind of Pokemon does you brother got?" Pinkie asked. "Well, he's got a Staryu and a Starmie." Twilight said. "Alright! Time to get to that gym!" Pinkie and the gang walked until they saw the big building with the sign "Gym" out in front. "Ah, baby sister, long time no see!" Shining Armor gave Twilight a hug, and she hugged back. "Alright, so who's my competition?" "Ooo ooo! Me me!" Pinkie said, bouncing up and down. "Well, let's see what you got!" the two ponies jumped into the pool like gym, and got their first Pokemon ready. "Alright, Staryu go!" Shining Armor through out the brown star fish like Pokemon into the pool. "Mkay, Rattata go!" Pinkie sent out the rat, "Rattata use Scratch, and give him a good one!" the Rattata used a ferious swipe attack, while underwater, damaging the Staryu. "Hanging there Staryu, use Water Gun!" the Staryu leaped out of the water, and sprayed Rattata with a damaging blow, almost knocking it out. "Alright Quick Attack!" Pinkie's Rattata used a Quick Attack, too fast for Staryu to dodge, and fainted it. "Good job Staryu! Alright Starmie, it's your time to shine!" Shining Armor threw out his remaining Pokemon. "Starmie use Bubble Beam to finish off the opponent!" Starmie let out a barage of bubbles, and knocked out the Rattata. "Nice job! Alright Gummy, show him who's boss!" Gummy jumped onto the Starmie, and brought it down deep into the pool. "Starmie use headbutt to get it off!" Starmie bashed Gummy with a hard hit to the cranium. "Gummy charge up your Hyper Beam, and be ready to blow it out of the water!" Gummy leaped high into the air, all 4 ponies looking in amazment, as the small reptile let out a huge beam of light, that blew a fountain of water sky high, leaving Starmie unconscious. "Yay Gummy!" she hugged Gummy, putting him back on her back. "Wow, you were a good fighter, and for that, here's your Cascade badge." Shinging Armor gave her the badge, and she put it in a small box she kept in her bag. Twilight walked over to Shinging Armor, "Big brother, I'm going to leave with these three on their Pokemon adventure, I hope you understand." He looked at her, suprised for a second, but then came to conclusion, "Well, if that's what you want, then I'm happy with it, I hope to see you again some day baby sister." he gave her a goodbye hug. The three walked out of the gym and looked at the map, "Well... we have to travle Route 5 and then we reach Saffron City." Fluttershy said, folding away the map. "Well what are we waiting for, let's get crackin!"
