As I send him into battle
He snorts, sending fireballs
Shooting from his porcine nostrils
I start the battle
Telling him to use Flame Charge
He snorts again and starts to run
His body a ball of fire
Towards his opponent
Tepig, my loyal friend
Who never lets me down
He has been by my side
From the day I began my journey
Another young rookie
Starting out on the long, hard path
That leads to the Pokemon League
