Walking along Route 201, they encountered several wild Starlies and Bidoofs, and the few that dared attack were shot down by the experienced Piplup.
Aside from that, it was a largely eventless trek. However, about a quarter mile from Sandgem town, Piplup began to shout loudly.
Dawn looked around in surprise, worried that a tougher pokemon than Piplup was around. However, she saw a pokemon she was glad to meet again. One both she and Piplup recognized well.
The Bidoof that got her from behind. His fur was still very wet and matted, covered in dirt and a bit of blood.
"Piplup, are you thinking what I'm thinking?"
"Wait!" called a voice speaking very clear English. It was the Bidoof.
Dawn did a double-take. "You speak English?"
"Yes, I do. Please, just listen to me for a moment. I'm sorry about what I did, I saw your ass and it was just so luscious and round...when I see the ass of a human girl, especially one as young and fit as you, I lose control. If it will help you forgive me, I will join and fight for you. At the very least, my translating skills could be helpful."
Dawn was still dubious; first she gets ass raped by the Bidoof, then he apparently speaks her language and wants to help her? Could she really forgive him in exchange for translating?
