As long as there have been Pokemon games, there have been rivals. Gary, those other guys, the occasional girl, N...

But here, our story is about a young man with bad intentions. A boy with long red hair whose name is ???. I'm not sure if it's pronounced like that or he just mutters, but it's a fun way to give him a name later on. He breaks into the lab, then challenges you to a battle.
Rival first meeting

As standard rival asshat laws dictate, he has the one Pokemon I'm weak against and I have only the one pokemon. If it faints, gg, run over. Come on, Q, let's hope for no crits, else, it was fun while it lasted.

I start off by Firin my lazar! and lowering defense, so I can kill him a little quicker. Totodile has better attack than me, so being scratched to death is a possibility. After a couple of exchanges, I manage to score a critical hit and wipe him out, much relieved that it was him, and not me.

The trainer defeated, I return to the lab and answer the question the police had. What was his name? well, ??? doesn't have a nice ring to it, let's have some fun and be immature here. He plays by asshat rules, he shall be know as...
asshat!


I'm not too sure on the use of the word rival here. I mean sure, he's going to be competing with me throughout the game, but he's a wanted criminal. Hes a known thief and abuser of Pokemon. Why aren't the police wiring me or something and busting him after I win? Well, all these questions seem a little silly to a world where the average age of leaving home is 10.

Ah well, goodbye to mother and off on a new adventure where there is no bed time and everyone has your phone number.
goodbye mother

Yep, bye! And don't spend my money!

Woke up, got my gear, met Professor Elm, picked my starter, and got the hell outta there. I've got a game to play, man! Behold, the first:

Good ol' Cynaquil. A nice fire type that'll prove to be effective in a few gyms. If I can remember what they are. I know there's a flying type, and those have low special defense, and there's a bug type early on that I can torch. This should be ok.

As per the rules, I nicknamed my little guy. He shall be know to the world as... Q-Pine. Get it... cus he's a fire porcupine? yeah. Anyway, the downside to this run is that I can't get anything after my first encounter on a new route, so I get nothing on the routes leading to Mr. Pokemon's house. Past Cherrygrove city. I better not lose anyone for a while, I've got nowhere to get any more from. Anyway, after finding a hoothoot on route 29, I get to strike that off the list of possible catch points. Hopefully I'll pop a couple of levels on the way. I wish I knew about starting stats. I have no idea if this guy's ok or not.
