As we get back to the team, Sammy had received a new phone call from her Dad.
"Dad? Is everything okay?" Sammy asked nervously. "Oh, yes. Everything's just fine! I just had to give you a few news. Your Aggron has been such a bother and won't obey us, So Norman has taken him to train." Her dad explained. "Awwe. Poor Obsidian, I hope he'll do okay." Sammy said. "I'm sure he will, I'll check up on him for you. Also, I wanted to send you some new clothes for your new adventure!" Sammy's Dad said. "They should be at the closest Pokemon Center by Sandgem Town!" Her dad said. "Thanks dad! Love you!" Sammy said. "Love you too." Sammy's dad said as they hung up. "Poor, Obsidian." Maria said. "I know right? Well, I guess we should head out?" Sammy said. "WAIT!!" Tyson shouted. "What?" Maria asked. "Don't we wanna leave our Pokemon here?" Tyson said. "That's true, We need a get a Pokedex too from Rowan?" White said.
So the group walked back into the Lab. Handing all there Pokemon to him except for Sammy's Zen and Puppet, White's Camo and Spiral and also Maria's trusty uncaught Castform. They also each received new Pokedex's from Rowan that was a big upgrade from Hoenn's.
"Delivery for Maria, Tyson and Sammy!" Cynthia said bringing in boxes. "Look's like you guys got mail already?" Cynthia smiled. They opened up the boxes to see new clothes.
"So how do I look?" Maria asked in her new clothes. She had a green bandanna on her head with a orange tan-top type of shirt over a black no sleeve polo shirt. She had two white strips down the middle with two Pokeball designs on her side. She also wore a skin-tight shorts with black socks and orange-white schemed shoes to match. It also came with white-black and green colored gloves. "Dang! You look stylin!" White said.
"Now what about me?!" Sammy smiled. Sammy came out now wearing a blue T-Shirt with a Raikou on it, Blue Jean Skirt and Tennis Shoes to match. Her hair is still fixed the same as it was before.
"Okay, I hope I look good too?" Tyson said coming out worried. He came out with a maroon shirt and khaki pants. He also sported a dark green with yellow inside and around coat. His shoes were Tennies that were a shade of blue and white on the bottom.
"You guys look great! Now, let's go!" White said. The group went outside and the little Piplup ran up to Maria. "Look's like he wants to travel with you?" Rowan said walking outside. "Is that true?" Maria asked picking Piplup up. Piplup nodded and hugged Maria. "Here take this Pokeball." Rowan handed over. "Wait, you caught him already?" Sammy asked. "Well, I was gonna have him sent to other trainers but when he never wanted to leave me and go in his Pokeball, I kept him and had him sorta wild with the others." Rowan explained. "Awwe, I wants to leave because of me!! Yay!!!" Maria cheered. "Oh, Hey Tyson, I heard your also needed of a Pokemon so I want you to have this little Turtwig here." Rowan said handing over the Pokeball and a Turtwig over. She had a little flower on her head.
"Wow, Thank you!" Tyson said. "So where are we off to first?" Maria asked. "Look's like we should head to Oreburgh City first if we wanna challenge the first Gym Leader?" Tyson read off his new map. "Then off Oreburgh we go!!!" Maria cheered running quickly down a hill with Piplup. "Maria! Slow down!!!" Tyson shouted. "Maria!" Sammy shouted as well. As Maria and Piplup were almost down the hill, She saw a mud pit below but she couldn't stop. "Aaaaaaah!!!" Maria screamed as she hit the ground in the pit. "Maria are you okay?" Sammy asked. "Does it look like i'm okay? I'm covered in mud all over my new clothes..." Maria shouted. Just then a little white squirrel Pokemon came over and jumped on Maria's head. Sammy took out her Pokedex.
"Pachirisu, the EleSquirrel Pokémon. It gathers static electricity and hides fur balls along with its favorite fruit under the eaves of houses."
"Get it off! Get it off!!!" Maria screamed. The screaming made Pachirisu scared that he shocked Maria and Piplup. He then jumped off into the forest. "You okay?" Sammy asked helping Maria up. "Yeah...I guess..." Maria sighed. "Hey I saw what happend are you guys okay?" A guy asked coming over. "Hehe, Of course!" Maria said gazing at the cute guy. "The names Sean." He intoduced. "Hello, Sean. I'm Tyson and this is White, Cam, Maria and Sammy." Tyson introduced. "So are you guys new here?" Sean asked. "Yup! Were from Hoenn." Sammy explained. "Well, You got any Pokemon? A battle would be great!" He asked. "I got a Pokemon!!!" Maria said in her muddy and ripped up clothes. "Alright, wanna battle?" He asked. "Of course!!" Maria cheered.
So the group and Sean went ot a little open area were Maria and Sean would have there battle. Sean grabbed out a Pokeball.
"Go, Starly!!" Sean threw out. Maria grabbed out her Pokedex.
"Starly, the Starling Pokémon. Starly normally travels in a flock, but when alone, it is hard to notice."
"This Starly is different from others, So I warn you it ain't gonna be easy?" Sean announced. "Hah. This will be easy with, Blaziken go!!" Maria threw out her Pokeball. The Pokeball landed and nothing came out. "What?!?" Maria said. "Maria? We left our Pokemon back? Remember?" Sammy shouted. "Oops! He.he, I forgot..." Maria said. "I guess we now know that if she had to attach her head everyday, She would forget?" Tyson joked. "Alright, Piplup! Your up then!" Maria called out to the field. Piplup jumped from the benches and on to the field. "So, I guess you can have the first move?" Sean smirked. "Piplup, Bubble Beam!!" Maria commanded. Piplup jumped up and shot out a bunch of Bubbles towards Starly. "Starly, Quick Attack!" Sean commanded. Starly dodged the Bubbles and flew at a high speed towards Piplup and attacked him with a slash. "Dang. He's fast? Piplup, Switch to a Water Gun Attack!!" Maria shouted. "Starly, Dodge, Now use Wing Attack!" Sean commanded. Piplup shot out water from his mouth that Starly dodged quickly, Then Starly turned in circles and slapped Piplup around with Wing Attacks. Piplup then fainted from all the fast moves.
"Piplup!!" Maria said running to him. "Well, Nice battle for a beginning battle?" Sean smirked. "Looks like we need a little bit of training?" Maria smiled returning Piplup. "Looks like were all gonna need to train if were gonna be taking on the first Gym?" Sammy said. "Oh guys are part of the Pokemon League?" Sean asked. "Yup! Are you?" Maria asked. "Well, At first but then I found out about Contests and I just loved to perform! So I'm entering the Jubilife City Contests!" Sean explained. "Wait they do Contests here too?" Maria asked. "Yeah why?" Sean asked. "Well, Maria, Cam and I like ot do Contests too but we didn't know they did them here?" Sammy said. "Oh cool, So I guess I have some competition then?" Sean smirked. "Hey guys looks like Jubilife City isn't to far either?" Tyson said reading the map. "Then Jubilife City is where were going then!" Maria winked. "But first. . .We should find a spot to rest for the night?" Maria said.
So the group plus Sean found a open little area to rest for until the morning. Everyone went ot bed but Maria got up. "Hey, Piplup. Are you awake?" Maria asked. Piplup woke up. "Hey, Let's go out and find some Pokemon?" Maria said. Piplup got up and nodded with a huge smile. They both then walked out to the field and saw a flock of Starly. "This is our chance!" Maria smirked. "Now Piplup us- Uh?" Maria stopped as that Pachirisu jumped in front of her. "You!!! Your the one who destroyed my clothes!!" Maria said with anger. Pachirisu laughed and then let out a huge blast of Thunder and shocked all the Starly, Maria and Piplup. "Thsi is gonna get old fast..." Maria said. "Pip..." Piplup said as they both fell to the floor. "Pach-Pach!" Pachirisu laughed and then jumped away. All the Starly gto up and flew away but one. That one Starly looked straight into Maria's eyes and then bolted right at her. "RUN!!!" Maria shouted.
