Corey had spotted my Pokemon evolve. I remembered his team - he had a Skiploom, Flaaffy and a Herdier. He was a lot faster at evolving Pokemon than I - no doubt he would be a brutal opponent in the journey to come.
"It sure is awesome!" I said, turning my back on him. "Sorry about doing this, but I've got to go to the Nova Outpost. It's not far away, I'll be back soon. Bye!" With that, I began to sprint and run off full steam ahead towards my destination. Pleasant struggled to keep up, but we both made it in the end.
Leaving Route 6 and entering the Nova Outpost.
