Prologue: Prelude to Shinou.
Satoshi, a young and skilled Pokemon trainer, was saying goodbye to his friends Takeshi, Haruka and her annoying little brother Masato as the four friends parted ways.
"Well guess this it guys," said Satoshi.
"Yeah," replied Takeshi.
There were smiles all around but these were smiles masking sorrow as they didn't know when they were going to see each other again.
As he headed down the trail back to his home of Pallet Town Satoshi thought about all he had been through with all his friends and his pokemon.The more he thought about it the more he realised that no ,atter what he wasn't going to forget any of them ever.
A little later he was almost home and for the last leg he raced his best poke pal Pikachu to the front door of his house. Upon opening and entering the house Satoshi found that it was completely deserted so he and Pikachu headed for Professor Okido's lab. It to appeared deserted until went to where all the pokeballs were kept then he got a surprise as Kenji, Professor Okido and Satoshi's jumped out of there hiding places and shouted "Surprise"
After having alot of fun and doing some catch up Satoshi got some clothes from his mom, a new pokedex from Prof. Okido and selecting Waninoko and Pikachu to take with for his journey Shinou, Satoshi set of but as usual he was beening watched by the bumbling trio of Musashi, Kojiro and Nyarth who wanted to steal Pikachu but always failed.
They then set a trap which in this case was a a large camouflaged hole in the ground (something that they have done many times before) and Satoshi fell right in but thanks to the Team Rocket motto taking as long as it did Satoshi was able to get out along with his pokemon and combine bubblebeam with thunderwave to send the idiots blasting off into the distance.
After nightout camping in the wilderness Satoshi got up just before dawn made sure he still had everything with him and ran as fast as he could to Vermillion City to catch the ferry to the Shinou region.
Looking at his to pokepals Pikachu and Waninoko he said "Well guys by tommorrow morning we'll be in the Shinou region."
Pikachu and Waninoko cheered and Waninoko began dancing like mad.
