"I'm going to Elm's Lab, Mom!" Clyde said, jumping off of the steps. Clyde was turning 11 that day. October 22, He ran into Professor Elm's Lab like it was none of his business. "Oh, Clyde! I never thought you've come!' Elm said."Choose a Pokemon!" Well, Chikorita was too cute, Cyndaquil looked like it was blind, Totodile looked awesome to Clyde, so Clyde chose Totodile. He doesn't give Totodile a Nickname. Totodile had an Unusual Ability: Speed Boost. Totodile was fast as ever! Always beating opponent's Pokemon with this: "Totodile, Aqua Jet!" said Clyde. Then, this Mysterious Trainer stole a Ultra Rare Pokemon, Sneasel. "You got a Weak Pokemon, you moron!" said ???. They battled and battled, and Totodile evolved into Croconaw and learned Crunch! "Croconaw, use CRUNCH!!" said Clyde. And Sneasel fainted. "Here! I'll give you My Sneasel! I stole it from Elm's Lab! Go ahead and have it, punk! My name is Silver!" said Silver. "Hmm... Go ahead and keep Sneasel, you saved him by the way!" said Elm. Clyde ran and ran to get to Violet City.
