Over the course of the next 4 hours, RED and the Hive Mind caught another wild Drowzee (later known as "The Keeper"), catching another Spearow, arrived in Vermillion City, boarded the S.S. Anne, and traded the aforementioned Spearow for a Farfetch'd (nicknamed DUX).
The first if many trees is positioned in front of the entrance to the Gym. DUX cuts the tree in a matter of 8 minutes, allowing RED to enter the Gym.
In a surprising amount of time, RED finishes the Gyms infamous "puzzle" within a matter of minutes.
After 3 battles with the Gym's trainers, RED began his battle with Gym Leader Lt. Surge. Lt. Surge ended winning the first bout, sending RED back to the Pokémon Center. Unlike the first time, because of the slightly higher viewer count, which makes doing the simplest of tasks nearly impossible, DUX has a harder time cutting the tree. It takes a little over 2 hours to cut the tree, but after much struggling, the tree is finally chopped, RED is finally allowed to enter the Gym.
Second Historical Event: The Ledge
Throughout the Pokémon franchise, a ledge was an obstacle used to prevent a player's progress, usually blocking a certain area, but sometimes, the ledges were placed in seemingly random spots, possibly to simulate a mountainous area. If the player were to move down, they would jump off the ledge. Something that would seem like an extremely minor nuisance became an almost impossible task for the Hive Mind.
The Hive Mind ended up spending 9 straight hours attempting to pass the ledge.
