Chapter One - Pallet Town

Your character is lounging around in the living room, or at the kitchen table. You are bored and have nothing to do. Your Parents are listening to the news on the radio and it is coming to the end of the broadcast. You haven’t really been listening to the news, but the last story catches your attention:

“And finally a word for any aspiring pokémon trainers out there. Professor Maple, who has recently moved into town from Celadon City, has sent a letter in to the station. In her letter she is offering trainers between the age of 11 and 18 the chance to become a pokémon trainer. She is offering the pokémon on a first come first serve basis, so trainers make sure you are up early and make your way to her lab tomorrow morning. Her lab opens at 10 o’clock, so be there bright and early to avoid disappointment... Well that’s all it says in the letter. Well, I think offering older trainers the chance to get a pokémon is highly unorthodox; it is tradition in Pallet that a child receives their first pokémon at the age of 10. Maybe the new professor believes in second chances? Well, it will certainly be interesting to see how this one unfolds.”

As your first post please introduce your character and describe their reaction upon hearing this news story. Then describe the morning your character received your pokémon, recieve your pokemon and begin making your way to Route One. Note that Professor Maple’s Lab is located on the far side of Pallet to Route One, so you have to walk past Professor Oaks lab to get to Route One... please end your first post as you are approaching Professor Oak’s lab on your way to Route One.
