Okay here goes. Just in case you've never played Pokemon White, in this game you have two rivals for some reason. The girl seems a bit bubbly, and since she gets the Pokemon that's weaker than yours while picking after you: I'm just going to rename her Bubbles. The second guy is a bit tougher. He's a hardcore studyholic, and with the Pokemon that's strong against mine. I'm gonna rename him Creeper, and assume he's my actual rival. He's. A. Jerk. He almost killed me... One fight in and I almost died. I'm only an hour into this and it's already scaring me.
After the two "rivals" and I destroyed my room with our Pokemon fight, my completely irresponsible video game mom had some words of wisdom.
And if that wasn't weird enough, I then walked in on a disagreement between Bubbles and her dad.
Afterwords due to my completionist issues I talked to her dad. Lo and behold I met the first responsible Pokeparent in my fifteen years of Pokemon.
I then crossed Route 1, caught my first Pokemon. It's something called a Lillipup. I'd call it this games Rattata, since it's a normal type in the first zone. But, during the catching tutorial the Prof. used a mouse to catch a rat...
I took a break upon reaching town safely. Someone mentioned a tour of town so I took a break there. With this much health.
That much health was actually cutting it a little close. I'm starting to doubt if I'll get past the first gym or two. Wish me luck, see you next time.
