(Soul Silver) Last night I paced outside the entrance to Ecruteak City training my Ratatta now Raticate to face Morty. Having completed the tasks in the burnt tower, I ran into Riakou three times and Entei once. I used Raticate's pursuit on Riakou in two of the encounters before it fled doing hardly any damage. The third time I decided to be an idiot and throw a great ball and of course it didn't work. Threw a pokeball at Entei, failed of course. It was eerie how many times they appeared in the same grassy area and it sucks that I am in no condition to capture or even dent them.
