"Guess I'm just being paranoid," she said unsurely. "Don't worry Aster, I'm sure it was nothing." She tried to reassure the Bulbasaur, who was looking a little scared. "How about we do some training? Maybe you can teach Reni some new moves?"
"Saur!" Aster nodded happily, enjoying the role of big brother.
"Okay Reni, come on out!" The Sunkern appeared in a flash.
The Pokemon faced each other across the path. "Aster, use Tackle! Reni, dodge and use Mega Drain!"
Aster ran toward Reni, who managed to dodge. Tendrils of green light sped toward Aster.
"Dodge it Aster, and use Razor Leaf!"
Aster leapt into the air, but Reni managed to redirect her Mega Drain to encase the Bulbasaur in green light.
"Nice one Reni!" Sarah cheered as Aster shook off the attack. "You're going to be ready for our next battle for sure!"
Did you hear? Apparently Celestia is synonymous with coincidental
. The next section in the current chapter of your journey is dripping with coincidence.
Occasionally attacks go wrong. Like, for example, a Mega Drain sucks up more than is intended. And that is certainly the case here.
You're aware that Bulbasaur is part Poison type, correct? Well, when your Sunkern sapped the Bulbasaur's energy, it also sapped some of its incredibly poisonous toxins that it keeps in its body. Uh oh.
"Sun," your plant Pokemon responds as you praise it for the great battle effort. Unfortunately, the Sunkern topples over and seems immobile, shaking ever so slightly. You go to check its condition. Not good. The Sunkern is burning up with an incredibly hot fever. Unless you find an antidote, the Sunkern is probably going to be out of action for a while
But where can you find an antidote?
You're in the woods. Who knows what you might stumble upon? You could always look around and try to find something. Some say that a certain Pokemon in Route 3 can heal another of any ailment. Hmm.
Of course, looking for a cure will certainly snatch time away from your trip. Darn. You can either wait until you get to the next Pokemon Center or have your Sunkern fighting fit straight away. Either which way, it's probably not good to have the poor thing continue to suffer like that...

A strange man approaches you. He is wearing a lab coat and some pretty funky glasses. He hobbles over to you, and takes a pretty close look at your person.
"Oh hey there, Mr Sparkle! You come here, expecting something good, hmmmmmmmmm?" the strange man asks you, twisting his head 360 degrees. "Let me look at your balls!"
Gizmo peers into your bag.
"Ohohohohoho! I see you have a Poke Ball and a Net Ball! The Poke Ball, well, that just captures Pokemon, y'see? And the Net Ball, well, that's pretty good at catching Bug and Water Pokemon, y'see?"
You look at the man, flabbergasted.
"Well, see you later! Hyuk hyuk hyuk!"
The man hobbles away, disappearing from view.
