Barnum recalled his unconscious Koaleaf, gritting his teeth. "Go ahead and rest, River. You did excellently for your first fight," I said, recalling her to her pokeball. I clipped the ball to my belt and said to Barnum, "Well, it looks like I won this battle, i'll head for Route 201!". Barnum gave me a dirty look and muttered, "next time i'll show you, and Koaleaf won't be just starting. See you later." As I stepped onto Route 201, I breathed deeply, enjoying the fresh air. I heard a rustling noise nearby, and quickly turned around to face it. "River, get ready, we have company, be it a wild Pokémon or a trainer!"
