The most asked questions in order that I get are the ones listed below.  If you have

Starting from the most asked questions and working down.

2.)  WALKTHROUGH

/------------------\
| Before You Begin |
\------------------/

The game asks you to set the time.  You can set it to whatever you want.  However, 
this may effect the gameplay.  Some trainers, items, and Pokemon can only be seen at 
a certain time.  If you want to know what to set it to, do the following:

Scroll down until you come to the one that says 4:00 Morn.  I usually set the time 
to 4:00 morning.

Once the clock is set, you will see Professor Oak.  He tell's you that "a world of 
dreams and adventure awaits..." blah, blah, blah.  You will be asked your name.  Any 
name will do, but can only be 7 letters long.

The Menu-
There a lot of important things on the menu.  To activate the menu, press start.

Pokedex-  A listing of all the Pokemon you've seen or caught will appear.  
There are four  different modes.  Choose the mode you want by pressing start.
New Pokedex Mode- Pokemon are listed by evolution type.
Old Pkedex Mode- Pokemon are listed by official type.
A to Z Mode- Pokemon are listed alphabetically.
Unown Mode- (You will only have this mode if you take the Unown quest.)  Lists the 
Unown pokemon in the order they were caught.

Pokemon-  Shows you a list of the Pokemon you are carrying.  
Stats- Shows you everything about you're Pokemon.
Switch- Allows you to move Pokemon around for battles.  Just click on the one you 
want to move and move it where ever you want it to go.
Move- Allows you to move battle techniques around in order you want them to be shown 
on the battle scene.
Item- Allows you to make a Pokemon carry an item.  You can make them hold anything 
you want.  A pokemon holding an item will be shown in the  Pokemon  menu with an 
envelope in front of it.
Cancel- Quits out of the menu your in.  You can press "B" to cancel anything.

Pack- Shows the items you are carrying.

Items Pocket- potions, berries, rare candies, power-ups, etc.

two Masterballs in the game) fastballs, lureballs, etc.

Pokegear- 

Map- Shows you a map of whatever island you on.  Jhoto or Kanto.

Phone- You get a cell phone in this game!  You can call Professor Elm, Mom, Bill, 
and any of the trainers that want your cell phone number.

Radio- Listen to some tunes.  At special times a ????? will appear as a Radio 
Station.  This happens in the Ruins of Alph, and will attract Unown Pokemon to you.  
It also happens in Blackthorn City.  You'll hear strange beeping noises.  This is 
caused by Team Rocket's "Machine".

Now lets get started...

/-----------------\
|  New Bark Town  |
\-----------------/

Pokemon:
Chikorita
Cyndyquil
Totodile

Items:
Pokegear
Everstone
Masterball

You start off in your bedroom.  You can turn on your computer and decorate your 
room.  You'll get more decoration options as the games continues.  For now go 
downstairs.  Your mom will come talk to you.  She will give you the Pokegear and 
show you how to use it.  Then she'll ask you what day of the week it is.  I usually 
choose Friday, because you'll probably get to Golderod city on Sunday, and you'll 
get a free TM. ;)

Exit the house and go to the big building next door.  This is Professor Elm's 
Laboratory.  Go up and talk to Professor Elm an he'll ask you to run an errand for 
him.  You have no choice.  He'll give you a partner. You can choose from Chikorita, 
Cyndiquil, or Totodile.
It doesn't really matter, but the 1st place cup goes to Totodile, 2nd place cup goes 
to Cyndiquil, and the 3rd place cup to Chikorita.

Exit the lab and the Aide will give you a potion.  Go left and enter Route 29.  

/-------------------------------\
|  Route 29 & Cherrygrove City  |
\-------------------------------/

Pokemon:

/--------------------------------------\
|  Morning  |     Day     |    Night   |

|  Sentret  |  Sentret    |  ----      |
|  ----     |  ----       |  Hoothoot  |
\--------------------------------------/

Items on Route 29:
Berry
Pink Bow
Potion

Items in Cherrygrove:
Map Card
Mystic Water

Head left along Route 29, battle any Pokemon you find.  Ignore the building you pass 
and head left until you find a strange tree.  Check the tree and you'll receive a 
berry.  Keep walking left and you'll hear a music change.  Welcome to Cherrygrove 
City.

Talk to the old man and answer yes to his question.  He'll show you around and then 
he'll take you to his house.  He'll give you the map card for your Pokegear.  Go 
inside the building that says Pok`e on it.

This is a Pokemon Center.  It will heal your Pokemon for free.  Heal your pokemon if 
you need to. (I would.)  Exit the center after your done healing.

/-----------------------\
|  Route 30 & New Bark  |
\-----------------------/

Pokemon:
/-----------------------------------\
|  Morning  |    Day    |   Night   |
|-----------------------------------|
| Caterpie  | Caterpie  |  ----     |                                                
| Metapod   | Metapod   |  ----     |                        
| Pidgey    | Pidgey    |  ----     |

| ----      | ----      |  Hoothoot |
| ----      | ----      |  Spinarak |
\-----------------------------------/

Items:
Mystery Egg
Pokedex
Berry x 2
EXP share
PSNcureberry

Head North form Cherrygrove, and you'll eventually see house and a berry tree.  Pick 
the berry of the tree, and go in the house.  Talk to the guy and he'll give you a 
berry.  Exit the house and head north.  You'll come to another house.  This is Mr. 
Pokemon's House.  Enter...

Mr. Pokemon will give you an egg.  He'll tell you that you need to take that back to 
Professor Elm.  And is that... PROFESSOR OAK!

Professor Oak gives you a little speech he's been working on, and he gives you the 
POKEDEX!  He'll leave for Goldenrod city and Mr. Pokemon will heal your pokemon.  
Leave his house.  Go back to Cherrygrove.

NOTE:  MAKE SURE YOUR POKEMON IS AT LEVEL 8, BEFORE GOING BACK TO CHERRYGROVE.  IF 
NOT, MAKE SURE YOU TRAIN IT UP TO LEVEL 8.

Enter Cherrygrove.  Heal your pokemon right away!!!  Now  exit town...

Your rival... What?  He strolls into town like he owns the place, and tells you that 
he stole a Pokemon.  So...

You start to battle.  For the those of you who have never played Pokemon before, 
here is how the trainer battle stage works:  

Your Pokemon will gain more experience if you are in a trainer battle.  You cannot 
run from a trainer battle, and you cannot catch the trainer's Pokemon.

----  Rival  --------------------------------------------------------
Name: ???
Pokemon:
Chikorita = ??? \
Cyndiquil = ???  - Level: 5
Totodile = ???  /
Prize: $300

This battle should be pretty easy.  He has a type advantage over you, hence: You 
take Fire, he takes Water.  You take Water, he takes Grass.  You take Grass, he 
takes Fire.  But you have a level advantage.  He only has one Pokemon.  His Pokemon 
is level: 5.  Yours should be level: 8 or higher.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
With that in mind, tackle, scratch, razor leaf- whatever your main attack is.  After 
you beat your rival,(or did he beat you?) go heal and head back to New Bark.  

Professor Elm is talking to a Police Officer.  The officer will tell you a Pokemon 
was stolen here.  He'll ask you for the name of your rival.  (You can name him 
whatever you want, only 7 letters though!)  Go talk to Prof. Elm.  He'll take the 
Mystery Egg from you and send you on your Pokemon Journey.  Go talk to the Aide.  
He'll give you five pokeballs!  Go talk to your Mom.  She'll start saving money for 
you!  It kinda helps, she'll buy stuff for you.  Usually it's decorations for your 
room.  Sometimes not.  Now let's go to Violet City!
