Dun dun dun dun dun-dun dun dun dun dun dun-dun!
You are face to face with a trainer. You are clutching at your belt, deciding which Pokemon to throw out first. Your enemy tosses her first Pokeball out, and a Steelix emerges.
You think to yourself, I know what I’ll do! I’ll throw out my new water starter! It needs the experience. You take a Pokeball from your belt and throw it to the battlefield.
You look in front of you in confusion and horror. A Trubbish sits on the field staring back at you with its gomi eyes.
“What the hell?” you say out loud.
You throw the Pokeball back and put the Pokemon back into its ball.
“I’ve never even caught this Pokemon before. Oh well. Next one!”
Another Trubbish emerges.
“For the love of Arceus!”
You return the second Trubbish. You throw the other four Pokeballs at once, and 4 Trubbish sit in a garbage pile together. You stare dumbfounded. You throw the empty Pokeballs and the other two to the ground, and you walk away in anger.
