Sarah yawned sleepily. She had spent the past few weeks training in Zenith Town. Her Pokemon were growing stronger and the egg she received had hatched as well! She looked down at the little Pokemon by her feet. It was a Sandshrew, just slightly smaller than usual. It tugged at her sock playfully. The little thing had hatched only yesterday and she was keeping it out of its Pokeball so that it could learn all about the outside world.
"You still need a name, don't you, little one?" Sarah smiled. "Hmm, let's see..."
At that moment, Aster returned from a nearby bush with an Oran Berry in his mouth. He broke it in half with his vines and offered it to Sandshrew, who took it happily. Sarah bent down and patted them both. "You're such a good big brother, aren't you Aster?" she praised. The Bulbasaur nodded happily.
"There's a gym in this town," Sarah said, standing up again. "I don't think we're quite ready to battle there yet. But with a bit more training... ready, you two?"
"Then let's do it!"
