15-year-old Leonel 'Wes' Griffin was playing Super Mario World on his SNES. Today was the day he'd receive a Pokémon from Professor Oak, and begin his journey to become the Champion of the Pokémon League. For now, however, he was just passing the time.
His mother, Amber, eventually rose up the stairs and into his room. “Leonel,” she said, “it's time to go. You don't want to keep Professor Oak waiting, do you?”
“Nope! Definitely not!” Grabbing his baseball cap and backpack, he rushed down the stairs past his mother, heading out the door and into the quiet and peaceful place called Pallet Town.
