Journey Across Kanto – Part 1

“Sky! Sky! Wake-up! You gonna be late!!


“Sky!! Get out of the bed immediately the professor is waiting for you!”

“Hmmm mom…please just a few more minutes”

“You will get out of your bed immediately young lady”

“WOOOAAA MOM don’t pull the sheet like that!!, I get it I get it I’m getting up geez”

“Seriously Sky, you should consider yourself lucky to have received this invitation from the Professor Oak, now get dress and quickly eat”


After a very brutal wake-up, Sky difficulty got up of her bed and walked to her dresser to take out some clothes. “Guess this would do” she thought looking that the blue tanktop and the pink skirt. Once she had washed the remaining trace of sleep on her face and ate the small breakfast her mom had prepared, the young lady took the direction of the professor Oak laboratory located in the southern part of her hometown, Pallet Town.

On her way to meet the professor, she met with the other inhabitants of the town whom congratulate her for having receiving a special invitation from the professor. The invitation to receive her own pokemon. Sky was really happy about it, now that she was ten years old, she was old enough to travel from city to city and get to know the region in which she live. I wonder how were the other town she thoughts without realizing there was someone standing in front of her

“Ya check out where you are going!!” said the person with an angry tone

“Sorry, sorry” quickly apologized Sky without looking at the person with whom she collided with.

Entering in the laboratory, the young lady asked her the direction to meet the professor.

After losing her way twice by taking the wrong turn, Sky arrived to the room where the Professor Oak was waiting for her.

“Good morning Sky!” greet the professor

“Good morning Professor, sorry for being late”

“You are lucky I decide to call your mother to know if you were coming or not, I could have given your pokemon to someone else”

“I’m very sorry…”

“Anyhow, now the only thing that’s matter is that you are here and it’s time for you to choose your pokemon, you are ready?

“Yes professor”

“Okay then, come close the table and take a pokeball”

Sky was about to take one of the red and white ball on the table when the room door flew wide open

“Gramp!!! I thought I would had the first choice” complain a young man walking toward the professor

“Gary, you would have had the first choice we you were here on time, now let Sky choose her pokeball, you will have the one remaining.”

“What! Why?”

“Because she was there before you”

“Tsk…fine…but I wouldn’t have be late if she didn’t crash in me” said Gary looking at Sky

Sky look at Gary and left her shoulder

“I would have crashed with you if you didn’t stood in the middle of the sidewalk” she reply taking one of the two pokeball.

“Seriously you two…it will never stop…so which pokemon did you choose Sky” asked the old man with a smile

“I took the water-type pokemon Squirtle”

“Now time to take mine…move over” said Gary pushing Sky aside “so what left for me…grass-type bulbasaur?! I guess I will have to do with that”

Professor let out a sigh shaking his head seeing how his grandson was behaving

“Now that you have both your pokemon, you can start to explore the world around you, just make sure to take care of your new friend and visit regularity the Pokemon Center.

Sky walked outside the laboratory happy to finally have her own pokemon, she was walking toward her home to show her pokemon to her mother when heard someone yelled her name

Looking around, she saw Gary walking in her direction

“Wanna fight? I want to see which pokemon is the strongest, bet I will beat you in not time”

Sky didn’t wanted to be called a coward, but she would have wished to have shown her pokemon to her mom before. The young lady reluctantly agreed to have her first fight against Gary and his pokemon.

Walking in an open area, the battle begin

“Go Squirtle!!”

“Go Bulbasaur!!”

Both pokemon was now out of their pokeball and was looking at each other and then they began to fight.

Squirtle difficulty won his first pokemon battle, it was hard but he still won it.

Gary, look at Sky click his tongue and walk away, saying the reason why she have won it was merely because of luck.

Sky was happy and now she could finally show her pokemon to her mom

“MOM I’M HOME” yelled the young lady opening the door house.

“Oh dear you have your pokemon now? Let me see it”

“Hmmm yeah, but I will have to wash it a little, the poor thing, Gary wanted to have a fight soon as we walked out the laboratory”

“Aww it’s okay, let me see it and we gonna heal his wound if he have any”


Sky took Squirtle out of his pokeball

“Oh It’s Squirtle right? a water-type? “asked Sky’s mom

“Yes!! He is cool right” replied Sky happy to show her pokemon to her mom

“Yes, yes he is…how did you name it?”

“Name?” asked Sky tilted her head

“Yes how do you call him?”

“Oh I haven’t really thought about it yet?…I think I will call him…Kota..”

“That’s a really nice name sweety”


“Yes, of course”


Even if Sky haven’t thought of naming her pokemon before, now she was happy to have be able to found name for her pokemon, a name she liked.

After healing the little scratch Kota had here and there, Sky ate a light lunch before going to explore the route 4 between Pallet Town and Viridian City.

On her way the neighbor city, Sky encounter two pidgeys and got a free potion from a clerk working in the Pokemon Mart of Viridian.

Once she reached the next city, Sky remembered what the professor Oak told her and the first thing she did was visiting the Pokemon Center to heal her Squirtle, then she decide to take a look at the Pokemon Mart located beside the Pokemon Center.

The clerk at the counter greeted her and asked if she was coming from Pallet Town, which Sky replied yes. The clerk request to Sky to bring a parcel to professor Oak. The young lady took the package and left battling her way to her hometown

“Those pidgey are really annoying, they are everywhere, if only I had pokeball with me, I could have caught one at least once”

Arriving to Pallet Town, Sky go directly to the laboratory to deliver the parcel to professor Oak.

“OOH I was waiting for this package, it’s the pokeball I ordered for you” said the old man

“Gramps!! You called me!!” Said Gary opening the door

“Oh yes! And I will need you too for that Sky!” said Oak to Sky

The professor walk to a desk in back of his office and took two red device lying on the top of it.

“This is a pokedex and I would like to ask to you two a favor, there is a lot of Pokemon around the region and I would like to track them and know where we can find them, however i,m now too old for that, therefore, I can’t go and take information about the pokemon living in our world, so will you are exploring the region, if you could take those Pokedex with you and filled from me, it would be really nice.

“Leave that to me Gramps, sorry Sky, I think I will be able to do it myself” he said before adding “Smell ya later” and walk away.

Sky looked at Gary walking away and followed after thanking the professor for the Pokedex.

It was early in the evening and sky started to get hungry, it was time for her to get back home, she could have just left for her adventure, but she wanted to pass one last night in her bed before officially starting her journey.

“MOM I’m back!!” said Sky walking in the house

“Sky what are you doing here?”

“I decide to pass a last night before going”

“Wanna take a bath before eating?”

“Yes! One last mommy meal before leaving”

Sky took the direction of the bathroom while her mother was preparing her dinner.

A last delicious diner before she leave the house, last time sleeping in her bed. After that she will camp and stay in motel and eat on the road. She really wanted to enjoyed her last night at home.

After her bath and after eating, Sky laid under her blanket and thought about how her day was. First pokemon, she got to visit Viridian City and got pokeball that she will use tomorrow.

It was a fun day, her first day of her journey across Kanto.
