INTRO ________________________________________________________________________________ You begin the game with an introduction to the world of Pokemon from the new Professor Rowan. He will answer any questions you have about the game in the beginning. You will then be asked to choose your gender and to pick a name.Then you'll choose your rival's name (We will refer to him as RIVAL for now). After all of that, you will be shrunken into the world of pokemon. ________________________________________________________________________________ 2. TWINLEAF TOWN ________________________________________________________________________________ You will start off in your room where you'll be watching a television program based on the Rare Red Gyarados. Explore your room for a while, then go downstairs. You'll be caught by your mother, telling you that RIVAL wants to see you. Then walk outside. This is the tiny little place reffered to as Twinleaf Town. RIVAL'S house is located in the top-left corner of the town. Go to his house. As your on your way inside, he'll come charging out in a hurry and after a while of talking, RIVAL will quickly go back inside. Now enter the house and go up to his room on the second floor. He mentions that he is going to the lake, but doesn't tell exactly why. Later follow him up to the entrance of Route 201. After talking to him, you'll be leading the way to Verity Lakefront by going west on Route 201 eith RIVAL following right behind you. ________________________________________________________________________________ 3. LAKE VERITY ________________________________________________________________________________ Once you Enter Lake Verity, you'll see and overhear Professor Rowan and Dawn having a conversation. They will soon go away, accidently leaving behind a suitcase. You and RIVAL go to examine the suitcase, but then out of nowhere, two wild Starly attack both of you. Luckily you find three PokeBalls inside the professor's suitcase. WARNING: Whichever pokemon you choose to battle with will be your starting pokemon throughout the game. The three pokeballs contain the following starter pokemon... TURTWIG - A grass/ground pokemon which is easy to train and lv. up. An excellent choice for a much easier adventure. PIPLUP - A water/metal pokemon which is the second hardest to train and lv. up. A good choice for the first gym. CHIMCHAR - A fire/fighting pokemon which is hard to train and lv. up. Although its hard to train, their are very few fire pokemon in the game and i recommend choosing it. After your easy battle with the starly, Dawn, the professor's assistant, comes over, worried about what the professor will say about her forgeting the briefcase and you two using the pokemon inside. She'll leave with the briefcase, but lets you hang onto the pokemon. Upon exiting Lake Verity, on your way back home, you'll meet up with Professor Rowan and Dawn again. This time Professor Rowan tells you to visit him later in Sandgem Town. After your chat with the professor, go back home and talk to your mom. She'll tell you to visit the Professor in Sandgem Town. Then she'll give you a pair of Running Shoes to make your journey much, much easier, of course until you get a bike. you can run by holding down the B button while using the directional pad to steer yourself. Now, leave your home and head north towards route 201. ________________________________________________________________________________ 4.

He will also ask you if you want to go on a journey through the Sinnoh region, collecting data of pokemon you find on the new pokedex he gives you. After your conversation leave the lab. Dawn will come outside with you and offer you a quick tour of Sandgem Town. First she will show you the pokemon center, where you can heal your pokemon.
