Tyler opened his eyes to see daylight streaming through the open porthole in his room. He slowly got up, rubbed his eyes, and stretched. He could smell the salty smell of the ocean, along with the cries of the Wingull. He liked it that way. He pulled on his purple sweatshirt and pants, as well as putting on the necklace his father had given him right before he left for his Pokemon journey and disappeared. He grabbed the red and white ball that contained his Charmander, Vulcan, and walked out of his room and up to the deck of the ship. He could see that many of the passengers and crew were busy preparing for the arrival of the ship in Johto. He decided to let his Charmander get some fresh air. "Alright Vulcan, come on out." he said. "Chaaaaaaaaaaar." squealed Vulcan, stretching. He looked out at the front of the ship to see Johto looming into view. It was hard for him to leave his hometown of Celadon City. He missed his family, his very few friends, and most of all, Iyan, his Oddish. He couldnt help, but wonder "What is Iyan doing now?" He knew deep down that he was safe at home with his mother, but lately he had been seeing news reports about Pokemon theives all over the Kanto Region. He walked walked towards the railing at the front of the ship, Vulcan stumbling along behind him, and leaned on it. He looked at the towering Mt. Silver, which was silhouetted against the sun. It was hard to beleive that, after this three day boat ride, his home was on the other side. Or at least, almost on the other side. He chuckled. He didn't know how long he had dozed off, but next thing he knew, the boat was docked in New Bark Town and the passengers were exiting. He picked up Vulcan, "Come on Vulcan, let's go." He walked off of the ship eager to start his Pokemon journey in the Johto region.
