* BagOfHolding: Brock's backpack is somehow able to carry an entire dining table set, complete with fine china, silverware, and candles.

Added DiffLines:

* TreadmillTrauma: Pikachu accidentally starts up a treadmill, but manages to keep pace. Unfortunately, Brock leans against it and messes with the speed settings by accident, causing Pikachu to eventually stumble.

Added DiffLines:

*** To look at things from another perspective, it's true that grass moves are strong against water type Pokémon, but Weepinbell is Grass/Poison and Starmie is Water/Psychic.
