Trainer: Eti Molo
Once the ball came to a rest Pleasant picked it up using his mouth. Content with his work, he placed the shrunken Lure Ball into my pocket, where it would remain until I reached Aurora City.
I began to stir slowly. "Hnng?" My vision was fuzzy and seemed to be of an off-colour. "What happened to that Slakoth?"
"Oh?" Pleasant said whilst looking confused. "Must have fled, or something."
"Oh. Well, good job fending it off, I guess." I brushed myself down. My clothes were severely muddied. I'd put on the spare set that was in my backpack soon - for now I had to figure out what the next best move was.
I wandered over to a small wooden sign by the side of the undergrowth. The text was faded and barely legible, but I could make out that we were headed to the 'Nova Outpost'.
"An outpost, huh?" I turned to Pleasant and said. "It appears to be quite close. Maybe we can find out where we are there?"
"Why not just check your PokeGear?" he snapped, evaluating my ignorance.
"Already checked. Out of signal." I waved the device in the Ghost-type's face.
', I thought to myself. "C'mon, lets check out the outpost." I made my way through the shrubbery, towards the north.
