| Suddenly Starmie
Suddenly Starmie (Japanese: VSスターミー VS. Starmie) is the eighth round in the Red, Green & Blue chapter of the Pokémon Adventures manga.
Outside of a huge mansion, Red is in disbelief that Misty actually lives in it. Later, before they eat, Misty appears completely dressed up when she, her maids, and Red are about to eat in the salon table. Red retells the events in Mt. Moon to the maids, rather boastful of his accomplishment, but Misty informs him that they need serious training to prepare for future opponents from Team Rocket. Red doesn't take the idea seriously and mocks Misty for underestimating him, after not being able to see him in action due to fainting herself. Offended, she storms from the salon.
Later that night, Red is in his room when he is attacked by a mysterious wind; however, Saur saves him and he finds a Gyarados scale in the chaos. The next day, while pondering over the assault during the night, he confidently tells the maids that he will defeat the Cerulean Gym Leader that same day. The maids begin to laugh at the idea. In the middle of the laughter, Misty says that she can take him to the Leader. When they arrive in the Gym, Misty reveals that she's the real Gym Leader and attacks Red with her Starmie. Red is caught by surprise, while Misty taunts him and reveals that she was the one who attacked him the night before. Furious, Red chooses Saur but they are easily defeated by Starmie's BubbleBeam.
Red is bewildered at Misty's actions, but the Gym Leader is visibly shaken at Red's carefree attitude. Pointing out how Starmie wasn't strong enough at Mt. Moon but cleanly knocked Red over, Misty yells at Red about how they would have to work their best, together, or Team Rocket would flatten them. Realizing the importance of the matter, Red finally accepts Misty's offer, much to the latter's joyous relief.
After a few days of intense training, learning each other's skills, the two separate to hone their skills separately. Hoping to see each other sometime soon, Red leaves with a Cascade Badge in his T-shirt.
