Orion wondered what The Gift was. He pondered the meaning of this while
walking behind a few buildings to get back to the Pokécenter. He was almost
there when he spotted an Eevee searching a garbage can.
"This is no life for you! You seem hurt! Let me take you to the
"No!" the Eevee said in English.
"Because my life is worth nothing!"
Orion wondered if he was hearing things.
"No don't say that! PLEASE! COME!"
"Ok, as long as you don't capture me..."
The Eevee also wondered why this particular man could hear her. They
walked into the Pokécenter, where his friends were chasing the being named
Score, apparently because they were wet for some reason. He ignored it and
took the Eevee to Nurse Joy.
"It'll be fine in a jiffy!"
A few minutes later, Nurse Joy brought the healed Eevee to Orion.

"Would you like to join us?"

They walked back into the Pokécenter, where they were still running
around. They noticed that Orion was back and then stopped running around,
gasping for breath.
"Hello!" said Orion.
"Who's... The... Eevee?" asked Tiki, who was still wet.
"Hi!" she said.
"Did you hear that? She said 'hi'!"
"No," the others said, "she talked in Eevee-speak!"
"What the?" he wondered. Then he figured it out. "The Gift! But it's
