As Link crossed the lake he hears a sound behind them, he turns and sees a boat being pulled by a starly. The boat came a little closer and Link was able to make out the person riding in the ship, it was Mickey the leader of the Violet City gym. "What are you doing here Mikey?" "Looking for you Link." "Well I'm glad you are here, something strange is going on here and I may need some help." The two of them continue on to the shrine. Once they arrive they notice a bunch of brightly colored balls floating in the water close to the shrine, Link makes a slight motion and Dragoon flies towards the closest one and brings it back. Now that he could get a better look at it Link noticed the chain attached to the bottom of the ball, he pulls up the rope until he reaches the end, at the end he finds a trap baited with poke' food that dragon poke'mon love. "So that's why their are so few dritini in the cave lately, some one is poaching them."
The two of them get to work destroying the cages, as they destroy each one a sense of accomplishment fills Link up. "it feels good to do something to help the pokemon in the cave" Mikey nods and continues to work after they release some captured Magikarp they come to the last cage, but theirs a problem its extremely heavy compared to the other ones. Mikey come and help me out The two of them work together to pull the cage up, after much effort they manage to get it on land. Inside the cage they found trembling and scared a pink dratini. I should try to catch it once we get it out. I don't think you will be able to catch this one As he said this Link pointed to the collar that was around the dritini's neck, I think we just found the missing dritini.
Examining the cage Link comes to a realization, Mikey My poke'mon don't have any moves that can break this cage without hurting the poke'mon, I think I'm going to need you to use your Gligar, it should be able to break the cage open easier and safer then my dragons could, but first, return Dragoon, go Fluffy As he throws the new poke'ball his altaria appears out of the light. Fluffy use Sing on the dritini so it doesn't hurt itself when we try to break it out. As the dritini falls asleep from the attack, Mikey recalls his starly and sends out his gligar. Ok Mikey I'll hold it away from the one side, you go ahead and break the cage open. Ok gligar you heard him, use X-Scissor the gligar's attack hit just right so that the cage was the only thing that broke.
Well Mikey, well have to look into this issue later for now lets get this poor thing to the poke'mon center. The two gym leaders head towards the entrance, cradling the sleeping dritini in the bottom of the boat, as the boat gets pulled by Links dragonite. Once the two reach the pier they disembark from the little row boat and walk out of the cave towards the poke'mon center.
