The story starts with Jill and Scott entering a Pokemon Center.
Jill: Alright Scott, just give Bulbasaur's Pokeball to the lady over there.
Jill points to a Pink-haired woman wiith a big smile on her face, Nurse Joy.
Scott walks over to the nurse.
Scott: Excuse me, But do you think you could heal up my Bulbasaur?
Nurse Joy: Why of course I can! Just hand it's Pokeball to my Chansey.
A big, pink Pokemon walks over and Scott hands his Pokeball to it.
Scott: Cool! A Chansey.
Scott takes out his Pokedex and scans the Chansey.
Pokedex: Chansey, The Egg Pokemon. Chansey is a kind Pokemon, who shares its egg with injured Pokemon who need it.
Nurse Joy: There! Your Bulbasaur is fighting fit!
Nurse Joy hands Scott the Pokeball.
Scott: Thank you!
Nurse Joy: Come back any time!
Scott releases his Pokemon from the ball and he and Jill begin to exit the center, but Jill stops.
Scott: What's the matter?
Jill: I just remembered that I need to do something.
Jill turns around and goes to the phone in the back of the Poke Center and dials it.
Scott: That girl is weird.
Man: Hey you! Little boy. Come over here!
Scott: What? Who said that?
Man: I'm over here!
Scott looks around and finds a tan man with white ribbon around his head.
Man: Can I interest you in a rare Magikarp?
Scott: What's a Magikarp?
The Man smiles.
Man: A Magikarp is the best Pokemon in the universe! It can created the universe, He can jump through dimensions. Why, He is the king of the sea!
Scott: That's strange... I've never seen anyone use a Magikarp on TV before.
Man: Ah yes, that's because of how rare they are! Nobody's ever able to catch on!
Scott: But my Pokedex says all it can do is a splash attack and-
Scott gets interupted by the mysterious man.
Man: -A Splash attack! Don't you know how powerful that move is? It creates a giant Tsunami and Tidal Wave!
Scott's jaw drops with excitement.
Scott: It does?
Man: Yes, It does!
Scott: I'll take it!
Man: That will be $600,000 dollars!
Scott: $600,000 DOLLARS!!
Bulbasaur: BULB, BULBASAUR!!
Man: Yep. For that low price I will give you one rare red Magikarp!
Scott: For that low price?? That price is insane!
Man: Fine. Since you're just a cheap little kid, I'll offer you another strong Pokemon.
Scott: What is it?
Man: A rare Remoraid from the Johto region!
Scott: A Remoraid?
Man: Yes, a Remoraid!
Scott: Is it good?
Man: Is it good? IS IT GOOD? Remoraid are only one slot behind the Magikarp as being the best Pokemon in existance!
Scott: What moves can it learn?
Man: Why, only the very best!
Scott: Like what?
Man: Well like, Uh..... Um......Like Hyper Beam!
Scott: HYPER BEAM?? on T.V. I saw Steven Bush beat one of the elite four with Hyper Beam!
Man: Yep. It's because he used a Remoraid.
Scott: He used a Tyranitar.
Man: Yes, but my boy. Remoraid evolve into Tyranitars!
Scott: How much for the Remoraid?
Man: For you, how about your Pokedex?
Scott: Oh yeah, My Pokedex! I should scan Remoraid to see what else it can learn!
Scott takes out his Pokedex but the man swipes it from him before he could even turn it on.
Man: No refunds! Take your stupid fish!
The man takes out a Pokeball and shoves it into Scott's hands. He puts the Pokedex in his pocket and runs away.
Scott: Yay! I got myself a Remoraid!
Moments later, Jill walks back over to Scott.
Jill: Okay, i'm done. Thanks for waiting for me!
Scott: No it's fine! I caught myself a Pokemon!
Jill: You did? Here? In a building!
Scott: Well, I didn't catch is per se, but some guy sold it to me!
Jill: Somebody sold it to you? Was he trying to sell you a Magikarp?
Scott: Oh yes! But it was waaaaaay to expensive.
Jill: You fool! The man was a con man! He always tricks people into buying Magikarp!
Scott: So I gave him my Podedex for nothing??
Jill: You gave him your Pokedex?! Don't you know how valuable those are!? Uugggg. We got to go back to Profesor Oak's so he can give you a new one.
Jill: Because, that's the only place you can get them!
Scott: Do you know Professor Oak?
Jill: Of course I do! Everybody in Kanto knows him! Plus, I work with him.
Scott: You work with Professor Oak!?
Jill: I just said that, Didn't I?
Scott: Um... Yeah
Jill: Come on kid, let's go.
