Ranger Rusty Anderson
"Oh, I see," I replied, having trouble with that answer.
Whenever I came to the park, I usually pick my Pokemon based on the terrain I plan on exploring, what Pokemon I hope to catch, and which Pokemon has been most useful during the time before my trip. Still, every trainer has their methods.
We continued our trip upwards, closer and closer to the spewing pit of lava, but then I noticed something strange. Sand was flowing around us, with an epicenter close to our location.
"C'mon, let's go see what's spewing this sand," I said, heading forward.
It didn't take long to find the source of the sand. A young, hippo-like Pokemon was taking a nap in a small crater, and as it snored, sand erupted from its nose. Hippopatas looked kinda cute in its sleep.
"I wouldn't feel right attacking a sleeping Pokemon," I said, "but it's your call, what should we do?"
