2nd Review:

The Problem with Paras!


Ash and friends are walking when they see a town. Ash says there's no point coming here if there isn't a gym. Brock says they should get more potions and antidotes and they argue about what to eat. Meanwhile Team rocket are ready to capture pikachu when Meowth is sick. 

Team Rocket is about to leave him when a girl who owns a house in which you can get supplies who heals meowth and yells at Team Rocket. When Ash gets to the house they meet a women who will offer them herbs that will grow hair on you. The girl who healed meowth is a trainer trying to make a miracle potion. Ash gets into a battle with her and she chooses Paras. Ash chooses pikachu and beat him with a static bolt. 

PATHETIC! Squirtle tries and also beats them. Charmeleon makes paras run away. Ash and friends look all over for paras but they have no luck. Team rocket helps paras gain experience and he grows a couple of levels. When ash finds Paras they try to lose to it again but this time Paras evolves into a Parasect! The girl thanks Ash and friends for helping Paras evolve.
