Ash, Misty, and Brock walked down the road. It was a peacful day. All was quiet. They were heading back to Pallet Town to visit Ash's mom and Professor Oak.
"So,Ash,"asked Brock,"Want to stop and eat? I'm starving."
"We're almost to Viridian City. We'll eat there. I can't wait to get home. What about you, Pikachu?"
As they entered Viridian City, they noticed something strange. The town was deserted. Everybody was gone.
"Ah, they're probably all inside,"said Ash."Let's eat now."
"No time for that, boy," yelled a voice.
Four metallic bodies walked into view.
