It's only my second day, but I sure have had a lot of adventures!
Morning: 10:09 AM
It’s been a long morning. Lots of training and slowly making my way out of Mt. Moon. It’s very dark in there. I swear I walked around in circles down there for hours. I eventually made my way out after bumping my head and stubbing my toes several times on the walls. I made the decision to head to Cerulean City and heal my Pokémon. Got to say, though, ever since I received the Helix fossil, I’ve had this strange feeling that I'm being watched, but I know I'm ready for anything! I have Abby, Pidgey, my Pokédex, and the Helix to guide me!
Late Morning: 11:30 AM
I’ve encountered quite a few Pokémon on my travels, but none have taken my fancy. Until now. I ran into a Rattata. The most beautiful Rattata ever, his large and unusually bulbous chin seemed to exemplify his strength and prowess. I examined a moon stone I found back in the mountain, maybe this Rattata was being affected by its power. But, there were no answers to be found. I felt the urge to consult the Helix a few times, then threw a PokéBall and then another. Finally, I landed that sweet, sweet capture. Rattata is now part of the team. I’ve taken to calling him Jay Leno. For some reason, it just seems to suit him.
Afternoon: 2:23 PM
Misty's Water-type Gym awaits my challenge! I again caught myself day dreaming about fighting the Cerulean City Gym Leader, only to once again awaken in the Pokémon Center. I decided that if I was even losing in my day dreams I should probably head to the nearest patch of grass to train. The training session wasn’t fruitless. PIDGEY EVOLVED!!! He became enveloped in what I can only describe as a bright white light and emerged as a Pidgeotto! He looks so awesome. Time to challenge Misty!
Late Afternoon: 6:50 PM
After a lot of training, healing and touring the city for the 23rd time, I went to battle Misty. She’s not too happy with me. Earlier I decided that I didn’t want the moon stone anymore so I tossed it into her pool. Anyway, it was a long and arduous battle. The Helix was my rock, literally and figuratively. With some guidance from the Helix, Pidgeotto knocked Staryu out easily and slowly wore Starmie down with a full barrage of sand attack, quick attack and gust. I have found that trusting the Gust is wise. In the end I was down to Abby who saw Starmie off easily, as Starmie couldn’t get a hit in. With the destruction of Starmie , the Cascade badge was mine. Pidgeotto was an amazing help this time around. I would even go as far as to say that he and his sand attack were our saving grace.
Late Night: 11:00 PM
After a trip to the north of Cerulean, several trainer battles and so many ledges,(I really have to control myself a bit better, especially around ledges) I got to visit a man named Bill. I had an instant distrust of him because the first time I saw him he looked like this strange domed insect. Don’t Trust Domes. I helped him out, well aware that the Helix fossil was glowing brightly in my bag. He gave me a ticket to board a ship called the S.S. Anne for my trouble. I felt his eyes on the back of my head as I left. I decided the best course of action was to head back to Cerulean City , where I discovered a Team Rocket member robbing a house. I quickly defeated him and looked to head south to Vermillion City. But that has to wait until Tomorrow.
