(It is morning. Sam, Zoren, and Lucy are wandering around Sandgem Town. Lucy is showing them the town. They walk up to the Pokémon Research Lab.)
Lucy: ...and over here is the Pokémon Research Lab. You may have noticed it when you first arrived here.
Sam: Yep, I remember seeing it yesterday.
Zoren: So that's the famous Pokémon Research Lab?
Lucy: Yes. That is the famous Pokémon Research Lab. The researchers and scientists there research the secrets of pokémon. I know a few of the researchers who work there, and they are willing to give us a tour of the facility.
Sam: That should be an interesting experience.
(The, suddenly, a person comes running from Jubilife City into Sandgem Town. He stops past the town entrance, he starts panting. Sam, Zoren, and Lucy go over towards him to find out what is happening.)
Phil: *Pant Uhh... *Pant Uhh... *Pant
Lucy: What's going on?
Phil: It's Jubilife City. *Pant It's under attack. Are there any trainers here who can help?
(Sam, Zoren, and Lucy exchange glances. Then they all nod at each other.)
Sam: We're trainers, we can help.
Phil: Ok, they're right in Jubilife City Square. Go quickly...
(Sam, Zoren, and Lucy run north, towards Jubilife City. After a few minutes they reach Jubilife City Square.
In Jubilife City Square there is a man in a dark cloak with a dark mask over his face. a short distance around him is a crowd of spectators, who are watching him battle various trainers using a Numel.
Sam, Zoren, and Lucy approach the man.)
Cloaked Man: Hmmm... More fools who wish to stop me, I presume?
Lucy: So you're the one attacking Jubilife City!?
Sam: Yes, we are here to stop you.
Cloaked Man: Fine, let's get this over with quickly. Go Numel! Defeat them!
Sam: Go Cyndaquil!
Zoren: Go Charmander!
Lucy: Go Piplup!
(And the battle begins. Cyndaquil distracts Numel by attacking it with SmokeScreen. Charmander and Piplup team up to surround Numel from both sides. Charmander jumps at Numel and attacks it with Scratch. Numel dodges Charmander's attack and counter attacks with Earth Power. Charmander is hit by Earth Power and is greatly damaged. While Numel is distracted, Piplup uses Bubble to attack it. Numel is hit by Bubble, and takes a bit of damage. However, Numel quickly counterattacks by using Magnitude. Both Cyndaquil and Piplup are greatly damaged by Magnitude.)
Cloaked Man: Hmmm... You're good, I'll give you that. But you're not good enough. Numel, finish them off!
???: Go Mudkip! Attack Plan Delta!
(The stranger's Mudkip quickly runs up to Cyndaquil, Charmander, and Piplup. Then Cyndaquil and Charmander surround Numel and distract it by using SmokeScreen. While Numel is distracted, Piplup and Mudkip quickly jump over it and attack with a combined attack of Bubble and Water Gun. The attack hit Numel and heavily damages it. Then Cyndaquill and Charmander run up to Numel and deal the final blows with Scratch and Tackle. Numel then runs away.)
Cloaked Man: Urggh... You will pay for this.
(The Cloaked Man runs away. The stranger who helped defeat the Cloaked Man walks towards Sam, Zoren, and Lucy.)
Lucy: Thanks for the help there! He almost had us.
Zoren: Yea, Thanks!
Sarah: ... Sam?!
Sarah: Sam, is that really you?
Sam: Yes, it's me.
Sarah: I haven't seen you in so long.
Lucy: You two know each other?
Zoren: That's odd, I don't remember ever meeting you.
Sarah: So, you are Sam's friend Zoren? The one who moved to Sandgem Town?
Zoren: Oh. I get it now. Yes I am Zoren. You must have known Sam the during the year I lived in Sandgem Town. That's why we have never met.
Sarah: Yep, that sounds about right. And who are you?
Lucy: I am Lucy. I am Zoren's friend from Sandgem Town. I work as an intern in the Pokémon Research Lab.
Sarah: Wait... Are you Lucy507?
Lucy: Yes. Wait... So that means you are Sarah408?!
Sarah: Yes, I am.
Sam: What are you two talking about?
Lucy: Those are the usernames that we use to communicate through the Research Network. So that means you are an intern at the Jubilife City Research & Development Facility?
Sarah: Yes. I am an intern at the JCR&D Facility. Wait... Do you guys want to go see the facility?
Lucy: Sure! I'd love to see the facility. I've heard a lot about it, but I've never been able to visit it. What do you guys think?
Zoren: Sounds good...
Sam: No Zoren, that sounds like an amazing idea!
(Sam, Sarah, Zoren, and Lucy start walking towards the JCR&D Facility.)
