    Pokemon Mystery Dungeon~Bringing the Fire: Chapter 6

    ((Okay, I'll have to break the 4-Pokemon party rule, guys.))<p>Team Gemstone did some more missions. In one of them, after they escorted her out of Thundering Woods, a Vulpix by the name of Flame joined the rescue team. By this time, Aqua had evolved to a Croconaw with brown eyes and there was no blue splotches in the yellow half of her be<_>lly, unlike other Croconaw. Sparky had evolved as well, into a Flaaffy. One morning, Scorch, Aqua, Sparky, and Flame met another rescue team. "Hello! I never seen you 'round here, before!" Scorch said. The leader, a Treecko, introduced his team. "Hello! We're Team Forestfire! I'm Leafy, the Tepig is Flare, and the Amarua is Aurora. She's a new addition." "We're Team Gemstone. I'm Scorch, my good friend is Aqua, the Flaaffy who looks like a girl but is a guy is Sparky, and the Vulpix is Flame!" Scorch replied, and her teammates said thier hellos. The two teams walked around the town, discussing thier adventures. When they were near the Rainbow Guild, suddenly the winds blew wildly, despite it being a lovely day. A green bird-like Pokemon swooped down, and took off with Aurora in its talons. "Ahhhh! Help!" she screamed. Leafy and Flare were dismayed. Lucario walked out of the guild, demanding "What's going on!?" "Aurora has been taken by a giant green bird! She was carried to Mt. Twister!" cried Flare. Lucario cu<_>rsed. "That giant bird was none other by Tornadus himself!" "We're going after them!" Leafy said. "Woah, hang on there! Tornadus is quite powerful. I think it would do you good if you bring another team with you," Lucario replied. "We'll come!" Scorch said. "Thank you! Now, let's go!"<p>***<p>Mt. Twister, of course, was a tall mountain. The winds were blowing hard. As usual, they had to fight their way up. Along the way, Flame found something. "What's this?" she asked, carrying a small blue box in her mouth. "Why, that's a treasure chest! There's a rare treasure in each one," Flare answered. "Do you want it?" Flame said. "No. You found it, you keep it," he replied. Near the peak, a Bagon confronted Team Gemstone and Team Forestfire. "I got this," muttered the Combusken, and shouted "Double Kick!" "Dragon Rage!" the Bagon yelled. Scorch was able to beat her in short time. Before they moved in, the Bagon suddenly said "Can I join the Combusken's team? I'm Growl." Scorch nodded, and everyone headed op towards the top of the mountain.<p>Aurora was in a 8-foot deep pit, shaking. When the two teams clambered up to the peak, the winds blew so fiercely, it nearly blew the Pokemon. A voice boomed "WHO DA<_>RES TO TRESPASS UPON MY TERRITORY?!"

    Great

    Great book, i own the book version and it has helped me a lot. Im not sure how the pictured would translate to the nook but even though they arent necessary they are helpful. I paid $25 for a hard copy so for only $10 its a good deal.
