I beat all the trainers on Route 102 before arriving in Petalburg City. I headed to the gym and met my father and then helped Wally catch a Ralts. My next destination was the Petalburg Woods and then it was Rustboro City. When I arrived in the city I headed towards the Rusturf Tunnel to train Torchic until it evolved into Combusken! Then I went to the gym and beat all the trainers, including Roxanne, using Double Kick. As I exited the gym I saw a Team Aqua grunt running away so I gave chase and made him give back what he stole. I returned the stolen goods and received some things to take to Dewford Town and Slateport City.
I went to Mr Briney's house and went to Dewford. I delivered the letter and then went to Slateport. I skipped the trainers on the beach and headed to Route 110 and captured my second team member, a Plusle. I took a break after the capture.
