As I continue on my Pokémon adventure in Kalos, I arrived at Shalour City upon reaching the Glittering Cave. I am there to get my third gym badge, the Rumble Badge from Shalour's Gym Leader, Korrina.
Shalour City is a city in a seaside location and is well known for the Tower of Mastery that plays a major rule in the understanding of the concept of Mega Evolution as told by Gurkinn, Korrina's grandfather who knows the history of Mega Evolution.
"What a great city Shalour must be," I said looking out the coastal scenery. "It makes me think of summer."
I sat on a nearby bench to take a break from all the walking around for a moment. The nice breeze blew gently as I glanced over the ocean waters on the beach nearby the Tower of Mastery.
"The Tower of Mastery looks so amazing from where I'm sitting," I said looking at the building that is known to have the major concept of Mega Evolution.
I began to feel a little hungry as I thought about how Poke Puffs would taste like. I opened the box of them that were packed like doughnuts and picked out the pink one and ate it. It tasted sweet like strawberry shortcake.
"How come Pokémon gets to eat these but not us people?" I wondered. "They definitely look like confectionary cupcakes to me."
After I had finished my little snack, I decided to head to the Pokémon Center to heal my Pokémon for the gym. But just before I arrived, the sound of roller skates was heard from a distance. The noise of the roller skates grew louder by the minute like a stereo's volume control being turned up. Could it be? No, just some roller skaters out there having fun as if it was a skating competition.
"Watch out!" An energetic voice echoed from a distance to warn anybody else who is in her way. "Here comes Lady Korrina!"
Then all of a sudden, I could see Korrina who became extremely huge and fat. She must have put on a lot of weight by eating too many Poke Puffs. It was amazing of how she is able to still roller skate despite her heavy size.
Korrina then parked herself right in front of me as her large belly almost collided against me like she was close to knocking me down with her belly. She peered down through her belly and noticed a box of Poke Puffs in my hands and drooled.
"Gimme all those Poké Puffs, trainer!" she ordered.
I trembled a little with fear but then I smiled as I wanted to play with her a bit.
"You'll have to catch me first!" I said sticking a tongue out and running off.
"Here I come, trainer!" Korrina shouted as she then started to skate after me and gave chase.
I ran around the entire city as fast as I could while huffing and puffing. I can imagine a song like the Benny Hill theme would be playing in the background to fit the chase scene. However, Korrina then started to gain up on me thanks to her acceleration on roller skates.
All of a sudden, she wasn't seen as I stopped running to catch my breath. Why would she try chasing me for Poké Puffs? Are they really that delicious or did I just steal them from her secret stash. I could say the second answer but I doubt that I took her secret stash.
"Finally," I sighed in relief and turned around. "I am home--"
My speech was cut off as I bumped into Korrina's big belly and fell down finally letting go of the box of Poké Puffs. Korrina picked up the box and dumped all of the Poké Puffs into her mouth. She ate up all of them and then rubbed her stomach with glee.
"Please don't hurt me," I said feeling a little scared.
Korrina laughed in response. She assured him she wouldn't harm him and knew that he is a Pokémon trainer to begin with.
"Ha-ha, I'm just messing around with you!" she smiled. "But thank you for the Poké Puffs, they were really good!"
"Much obliged, Korrina," I smiled back knowing that she's a very nice Gym Leader. "I'm here to challenge you for the Rumble Badge," I added.
"Come on to my gym," she said. "I will be waiting to challenge you and your Pokémon. And of course more Poké Puffs," she added with a wink.
Korrina skated all the way back to the gym as I made myself get ready by heading down to the Pokémon Center to heal up my Pokémon. I headed towards the gym and went inside to challenge Korrina for the Rumble Badge.
