Chapter 54- A Random Lazy Pokemon… And A Snorlax
Missingno crosses his arms. “Wow! Not cool, man!”
Don’t look at me, I didn’t make the chapter title. Plus, can you really say that when you are laying on a kid’s wagon, with Driller pulling you along.
The wagon squeaks along as Driller struggles to pull him down the small path. Cassandra walks up to him, grabbing her Pokemon back.
“Don’t harass Driller.”
“But I’m la~zy.”
“Then make one of those clones of yourself, and have that pull you.”
Missingno snaps, and a clone pops up.
The clone then fall on its face, rigid. “I’m la~zy.”
Cassandra shrugs. “Guess you’ll just have to put in some effort yourself.”
Missingno struggles to get up. He eventually gets to a kneeling position in the wagon. He grabs the handle, and a motor starts up. He grabs and throws the clone to the side. Pushing the handle, the motor revs as the wagon lurches forward.
He zooms past Cassandra and Driller and farther into Route 16. Cassandra rolls her eyes, and takes her time as she strolls after him. She looks at the vast sky, dotted sparingly with white clouds. She stops momentarily as a family of Rattatas run by, led by a Raticate into the forest.
She smiles as she continues down the path again. It isn’t long before they catch up.
Missingno is still riding around in the wagon, but a large mass is blocking the way. He drives into it, bounces back, and tries again. After watching him repeat the action several times, she smacks him upside the head.
“If it hasn’t worked yet, I don’t think another 40 tries will do much good.” She looks at the large blue mass, and then to the tan that topped it. “What is this?”
“It’s Snorlax. Can’t you tell by the cute look on his face?”
Cassandra looks around the mass. She notices the limbs that lie around lazily. His head is leaned against a tree, breathing peacefully.
“Um… is it asleep?”
“Yes, and the only way to wake it up is to use the Poke Flute.”
“Didn’t you alter that awhile ago?”
“Yes, but the real question is why can’t you fight it like any other wild Pokemon?”
Cassandra looks at the Snorlax, then at Driller. “... Twi Needle?”
Driller continuously shoots green projectiles into the Snorlax’s side.
Wild Snorlax fainted!
After a few seconds, Snorlax is knocked unconscious… which is hard to tell, since his eyes are always closed and his limbs were already limp.
Cassandra looks to Missingno. “So… what now?”
Missingno sits up in the wagon. “I don’t know. The game usually takes care of fainted Pokemon.”
With a big yawn, Snorlax returned to the mountains!
A large mechanical claw descends from above and grabs the Snorlax like in a crane game. It lifts the Pokemon up and out of sight.
Cassandra watches as it leaves, but soon finds that Missingno has already moved on.
And is now trying to drive his wagon through the door. Unsuccessfully.
Cassandra walks up and opens the door for him.
He drives alongside the counter, pausing abruptly when the man behind the counter yells.
“Excuse me! Wait up please!” The uniformed man at the counter holds up his hand.
Missingno returns his glare with a blank stare of his own. Keeping eye contact, he whispers to Cassandra. “He can only focus on one person at a time. Slip by while he’s distracted.”
“Are you sure that’s okay? Don’t we need a bike for this road?”
“Don’t worry about it, what is he gonna do?"
He could arrest you.
“Please. No real officer would be assigned to guard a biking route. He is probably just a mall cop.”
Cassandra coughs loudly. “I did it, what now?”
Missingno pushes the handle forward. As the tires spin wildly in place, he yells, “B!”
He jolts forward before pausing in the air again.
… The mall cop yells again. “No pedestrians are allowed on Cycling Road!”
“B!” Missingno’s wheels spin forward again. The wagon moves back toward the mall cop before shooting forward…
And ramming through the wall.
Cassandra sighs, and opens the door to leave. The view outside breathes as the afternoon begins to creep in. Cycling Road is a protected area, and is kept clean throughout the year. The many bikers that hang out on the roadway chat away aimlessly as they wait for trainers to battle. She thinks back to the guard and his determination to keep those without bikes out. She looks down…
And finds herself on a bike.
“What is this?!”
Missingno drives back up to her. “That is what we normal people like to call, ‘a bike’.”
Cassandra glares at him.
“Oh, you mean what is it doing here? If you do the glitch to pass by without a bike, you still get on a bike when you leave the building.”
“So this bike came out of nowhere?”
“Yeah, pretty much.”
Another Missingno slumps over the nearby fence. “I got you this HM. It took a lot of effort to obtain… I had to Cut down, like, one tree.” He limply tosses a jet pack at Driller.
1, 2, and… Poof! Driller forgot Don’tFly! And…
Driller learned ActuallyUseTheWingsItHas!
“... That is way too long.”
Driller learned FlyAroundReallyFast!
Cool, now you can go catch Cassandra.
He looks over at Cassandra, who is trying to sneak away towards the trainers on her bike.
“Oh, no you don’t!” He pushes the handle forward, racing after her.
