As he was walking along, doing his own little thing, he noticed a movement in the trees to the left. The whole clearing was quiet...if you don't take his music into account. He slid his headphones down around his neck and turned to face the direction the rustling came from. "..What the hell?" A Poochyena burst from the forest and slammed full-force into Giovanni, sending him spiraling to the ground. Before long the pair was rolling through the grass towards Littleroot Town. Gio was just barely holding the Poochyena off him. Barely. It was snapping and snarling, but the well muscled Italian was holding his own. He had just enough time to look over his shoulder to see that Birch guy's laboratory. They both slammed into it. Giovanni stood up as the Professor ran out and saw the unconcious pokemon. Before it could recover, he threw a pokeball at it. It disappeared with a red flash.
