Mako lead Jace through Viridian City and eventually found Raleigh, "Hey, Raleigh, would you like to battle this guy right here?" Mako pointed behind his back, "His name is Jace, and I felt bad for turning his battle request down, so I was wondering if you would like to battle him."
Raleigh, who'd been riding around town with Kunio, stopped when he noticed Mako and another boy approaching him.
"So you wanna battle, eh?" He asked the other boy, apparently named "Jace". "Sure, I'll battle you!"
He hopped off of his bike and stowed it in his backpack, before dusting himself off a bit and pulling two pokeballs from his belt: the ball containing Roger, and Kunio's empty ball.
"Ready when you are," he said with a smirk.
(What levels are your pokemon, Proto? The only pokemon I can use at the moment are Roger, my Lv 5 Taillow, and Kunio, my Lv 9 Eevee. I want the level of the pokemon I use to be close to the level of yours, so I'll pick one or the other depending on your levels.)
