The sun was shining, the bird Pokémon were chirping, and there was not a cloud in the sky. Kayla looked up at her new trainer. He looked like he was deep in thought. Suddenly, he started walking forwards along Route 201. Kayla followed him, wondering what he was thinking about. "Hey." Kayla looked up at Crim, startled. He was looking down at her. "What's your name?" he asked. Kayla blinked, and stared at him with a look of puzzlement. Crim stopped walking, and kept looking at Kayla. She started to feel uncomfortable. From what she had heard, humans couldn't understand Pokémon...could they? A few moments passes with Crim still staring at Kayla, before she shrugged. The little Koaleaf looked up at Crim, and said in that mysterious Pokémon language, "My name is Kayla." There was silence as Crim continued to stare at Kayla. Then he abruptly looked up, and continued walking. Kayla was suprised at this reaction, but shrugged and caught up with Crim. The pair continued like that for a while, just walking along. Kayla heard Crim mutter, "Kayla. That's not a bad name." Kayla stopped in her tracks. Crim stopped and turned to see what she was doing, and saw her staring at him with what looked like pure and utter confusion and shock. "Wha-" she was about to ask, when suddenly something came flying out at them from the bushes that were on either side of the path.
