Zack had told his young fire companion about the fact that he was going to be traded to a new trainer. Zack was very close to all of his Pokemon and never hid anything from them. But as it was Zack simply realized that he does not have the time to raise all of these Pokemon and that was not fair to the little creatures. They deserve a chance to grow and develop. This was his young friends best chance to do just that. He had gotten word that a young up and coming trainer wanted a fire Pokemon, and Zack was more than happy to oblige the request. It wasn’t that Zack did not need the fire power, but rather he simply was always looking for rarer and more exotic Pokemon, and as it was Cyndiquil though rare he had gotten plenty of pictures of and the young Pokemon was not really strong enough to help him find other rare Pokemon.
Sitting on the park bench in Violet City the trainer and his Pokemon watched the people and their Pokemon go by. It was a gorgeous day in the park and though the little fire mouse knew what would be taking place shortly he was enjoying these last few hours with his original trainer.
