Ranger Rusty Anderson
"F-f-fifty Two!?!" I shouted, taken off guard at first, "oh wait, there's no way you can be fifty-two, Milonakus disease or not."
I suddenly felt really stupid, the trainer's age was mentioned in his application for crying out loud! I decided that the best route to take was to just laugh it off.
"Torkoal, Gligar, and Hippopatas, huh?" I said nonchalantly, "those are some good Pokemon. Torkoal aren't as common as some of the other fire-types, but I still see plenty of them around. As for the other two, we'll have to keep our eyes out. I know Hippopatas like to wander around the rocky areas of the mountain, but unless we can find a nest, Gligar tend to disappear in the ash."
I stopped hiking, suddenly being overcome with the sensation of being watched. I turned around, trying to find the source of this feeling. The only thing out of the ordinary that I could find was blue rock with a crack in it. That crack was oozing with molten lava. I inched closer to the rock, and when I was no more than five feet away, it suddenly rose from the earth! A red slug made out of searing magma was now mere feet ahead of me! I jumped back, not wanting to lose an arm to the Magcargo.
"Gah, I forgot that some of the Pokemon here can disguise themselves as rocks!" I shouted, before turning to Jesse, "It doesn't seem like Magcargo will be any real threat to us, but would you be interested in catching one?"
