Last time, on A Pokémon Trainer Is You:
What do you do next?
– Camp out here so you can investigate the invasive species.
You have other concerns besides continuing your journey. The evidence you’ve collected suggests that there are non-native species in this habitat, and while that isn’t necessarily a problem per se, you want to rule out any possibility that they might be harming the local ecosystem. Viridian Forest and Pewter City aren’t going anywhere, and there’s always some chance that the mysterious Viridian gym leader will return in a day or two. You find a sheltered spot by a small pond and set up to spend the night here.
Do you want to give Wurmple a nickname?
– Let Pokémaniac Chris name it.
