|The Five Sisters of Squirtle|
Squirtle has five sisters, and they've invited him to come home and visit, along with Almond. (Naturally, Hazel tags along too.) After a brief introduction, the sisters push Almond through a trap door! (Hazel, Pikachu, and Clefairy join him.) Kamemi tells Almond that they're testing whether he's good enough for Squirtle. And if not, they'll make Squirtle move back home!
Almond's first test comes from Kamemi, the second-eldest sister: He must eat a bowl of noodles in under a minute. Burning his tongue, he passes with five seconds to spare, but fails the multiple-choice paper test of third-eldest Kamena. "I hoped you'd be a rebel who'd give the test back blank!"Now Almond, Hazel, Pikachu, and Clefairy fall through another trapdoor. The next test comes from Squirtle's younger sisters, Kamee and Kameyo. They've rigged a spiked wall to chase Almond and the others through an obstacle course! Miraculously, they survive.
The final test is from Kameko, the eldest sister. She challenges Almond to a one-on-one battle! As she fires a Hydro Pump, Squirtle jumps in the way and takes the full blast of the attack. Accepting Squirtle's choice to live with Almond, Kameko gives Almond a great big ol' hug...
...which leaves him in a coma for three months.
