Reyes' Journey! Part 1
Today starts the first day of Reyes' journey! After waking up and talking to his mother, he finds out Professor Oak, the leader of Pokemon research, has asked to see him. As Reyes goes to the lab, Professor Oak isn't there, but instead, his neighbor Blue is. Blue is always bent on being one better than Reyes since they were kids.
Anyway, one of the scientists tells Reyes that the Professor is doing some field research. After scouring the town, Reyes had one place to look: Route 1. The place seemed scary to Reyes, since the grass was overgrown and teeming with wild Pokemon. As soon as Reyes takes his first steps onto the road, Oak stops him, saying that it's too dangerous to go alone. Oak then takes Reyes back to his lab.
At the Professor's lab sat 3 different Poke balls on a table. He tells Reyes and Blue that one of those Poke Balls will contain their partner. Reyes goes first, and picks . Blue, having secretly researched type advantages the night before, picked . Blue, confident he was going to win, challenges Reyes to a battle. Since Reyes has never battled before, Oak helps him in selecting moves to defeact .
After a barrage of Scratches, Reyes won! Overjoyed that he finally beat Blue at something, Reyes celebrated. Blue ran off in anger, saying that he will get better. Now the whole world is out there, and ready for the taking! Reyes' Journey has just set forth!

I battled the trainers around Resort Gorgeous again and then I Surfed back to Five Island. I healed my Pokemon at the local Pokemon Center, then I went to the Five Island Meadow and I battled some wild Pokemon. I arrived at the Rocket Warehouse eventually, but I couldn't get inside yet. I Surfed over to the Memorial Pillar area of the island and I battled some trainers there. Since there wasn't much left to do on Five Island, I headed back to mainland Kanto and I decided to wander around a bit. I headed to Celadon City to buy some items at the Department Store and I also played the slots at the Game Corner. I then went back to Vermilion City and I took the Seagallop ferry to Three Island. I headed over to Berry Forest and I picked up some berries from the ground. I went to Four Island afterwards and I left another Pokemon at the Day Care Center and I saved before leaving the island.

Reyes' Journey, Part 2
When we last left off, Reyes received his first Pokemon, Bulbasaur. Taking his first steps through Route 1 as a Trainer was nice; Bulbasaur was able to take down a few Rattatas and learn Leech Seed along the way.
In Viridian City, after healing, as well as register for the Kanto League, Reyes visited the PokeMart, only to receive a parcel for Prof. Oak. Reyes and Bulbasaur head back to Pallet Town to give the parcel to Prof. Oak. As thanks, Oak gives Reyes (and Blue) a Pokedex to aid Reyes along his journey.
Once Reyes returned to Viridian City, he visited the school to learn more about status conditions, and the old man next to the school gave Reyes the Teachy TV. Reyes watched the first four episodes, and after being inspired by the super-cool Poke-dude, Reyes headed to Route 22 to catch a Pokemon. And he did! Reyes caught a Mankey, just like how the Poke-dude did. Bulbasaur and Mankey both lost to a Spearow, however, so Reyes decided to train his team some more, so he could beat all 8 Gyms and go down Route 22 again as the next Kanto Hall-of-Fame Trainer....
5th April 2013, 6:24 PM
I left Four Island after wandering around there and I headed back to Five Island. I went back to Resort Gorgeous to do a little training. I battled trainers with the VS Seeker and then I headed back to the main island and I took the Seagallop ferry to Six Island next, which I hadn't yet explored. I headed to the local Pokemon Center upon arrival and I healed my Pokemon there then I bought some items at the local Poke Mart. There wasn't much else left to do so I headed over to the Ruin Valley area of Six Island and I battled some trainers on my way to the center of the valley. I caught a wild Natu and a wild Yanma in the tall grass as I wandered around and I battled some Hikers around there as well. I eventually arrived at the Dotted Hole place and I headed down the holes until I found the Sapphire stone. Unfortunately, it got taken by a Team Rocket scientist who left the cave. I saved.

Reyes' Journey, Part 3
Well, after training on Route 22 for some time, Bulbasaur learned Vine Whip and Mankey learned Low Kick. Blue showed up, and after being sore from our past battle, challenged us again. His Pidgey was easy to take out with Bulbasaur, but Mankey couldn't take out Charmander. Thankfully Bulbasaur did
Reyes then visited the Pokemon League gate to see all the statues of previous Hall-of-Fame members, and then headed back to Viridian City to heal up. Reyes, Bulbasaur, and Mankey headed up to Viridian Forest, where one of the people there challenged him to catch a bug Pokemon-and he did. Caterpie was caught! After getting lost a few times and challenging a few Bug Catchers, something strange happened to Caterpie. It ended up evolving in the end to Metapod! Reyes, fascinated by this evolution, decided to learn more about Pokemon by continuing north to Pewter City, where the first Gym awaits Reyes and his novice team....
6th April 2013, 9:16 PM
Team Rocket's scientist Gideon gave me the second password to Team Rocket's Warehouse on Five Island before he left with the sapphire, so I headed out of the Dotted Hole and I took the Seagallop ferry back to Five Island. I wandered through the Five Island Meadow and I eventually arrived at the warehouse. I entered it and I started battling against some Team Rocket grunts inside. I also picked up items as I moved around, and I eventually came face-to-face with the female admin. I battled her and I defeated her Muk and Arbok with my Nidoking's Earthquake attack. I then used Charizard's Flamethrower against her Vileplume and I defeated her. I battled the male admin next and I used my Rhydon against his Golbat and I defeated it with Rock Blast. I then used Charizard against his Weezing, and then finally my Vaporeon against Houndoom. I saved the game after I defeated him.
8th April 2013, 11:09 AM
Reyes' Journey, Part 4
In Pewter city, Reyes visited the museum and talked to many people living there, trying to get information about the Gym Leader, Brock. But when the time came, Reyes was ready for a Gym Battle:
Gym Battle 1: Brock vs.
Happy with my win, I left for the next town, and along the way, someone sold Reyes a Magikarp for $500. Even though everyone else thought it was a bad deal, Reyes sees potential in Magikarp, as Reyes and his team travel through Mt. Moon....
8th April 2013, 5:00 PM
After I defeated the Team Rocket Admins at the Team Rocket Warehouse on Five Island, I battled against Gideon who was Team Rocket's scientist and the guy who stole the Sapphire stone thing from the Dotted Hole. I used my Nidoking against his Voltorb, Electrode and Magneton and I beat them all easily. I used my Charizard against his Porygon and Magnemite after that and I defeated Gideon. I obtained the Sapphire at long last and then I left the warehouse after Gideon commented that I reminded him of Giovanni's kid. I went over to the port on Five Island and I took the Seagallop ferry to One Island. I visited the Pokemon Center and I gave the Sapphire to Celio so he could finally complete his machine. I headed out to Kindle Road afterwards to do some training, then I headed over to Six Island in order to explore a bit more. I wandered through the Green Path area and I saved there.
9th April 2013, 10:55 AM
Reyes' Journey, Part 5
When Reyes entered Mt. Moon, he felt it would be a good time to train Magikart some more. Magikarp gained a few levels, but Bulbasaur did the REAL Training- It ended up evolving to Ivysaur!
In Mt. Moon, Reyes found an evil team named Team Rocket, and they were trying to get their hands of ancient Pokemon fossils. Reyes intervened and made sure they didn't. Along the way, he caught a Clefairy! The Super Nerd that was protecting the fossils gave Reyes the Helix Fossil as a token of gratitude.
Upon exiting Mt. Moon, Reyes met two move Tutors: one for Mega Punch and one for Mega Kick. Reyes let Clefairy and Mankey learn the moves respectively. Reyes trained Clefairy and Magikarp for a little while, then he headed to Cerulean City, where Blue was waiting for him, but thankfully, Mega Punch and Mega Kick helped a lot.
10th April 2013, 6:39 AM
I arrived at the Pattern Bush area of Six Island and I battled against some trainers that I had neglected to battle before. I also captured a Spinarak, a Ledyba and a Heracross in the tall grass and then I headed west towards the forest's exit. I arrived near the sea and I Surfed around the Outcast Island area. I used the VS Seeker to re-battle some trainers and then I flew back to Six Island after visiting Altering Cave. I took the Seagallop ferry to Seven Island and I swapped Pokemon at the local Pokemon Center, and I also bought some items at the local Poke Mart. I headed north and I battled against two trainers and I Surfed north to Trainer Tower. I didn't challenge it yet since my Pokemon weren't ready, so I headed back south and I headed to Sevault Canyon. I battled some trainers by the entrance and then when I got to the actual canyon I had to battle even more trainers. I saved.
11th April 2013, 2:22 AM
Reyes' Journey, Part 6
Reyes entered Cerulean City with high hopes of obtaining the Cascade Badge, but he realized he had training to do. Blue showed up, but he was no match for Reyes' team. Reyes also won a battle tournament on the Nugget Bridge, only to decline the offer to join Team Rocket. Reyes traveled to the Cerulean Cape and visited Bill, who managed to turn himself into a Clefairy. After rescuing him, Bill offered Reyes the Ticket to the luxurious S. S. Anne.
Upon returning to the city, Reyes stopped Team Rocket and obtained Dig as a reward. Then, came the Gym Battle:
Gym Battle 2: Misty vs
After the win, Reyes headed through Route 5 and traveled down the Underground Tunnel leading to Vermilion City (since the gaurds blocked the gate to Saffron City for some odd reason...)
Now, Reyes received a Bicycle from the President of the Pokemon Fan Club, and he is now battling Trainers along Route 11, waiting for the S.S. Anne to open up for Reyes, then, ultimately, the Vermilion Gym...
11th April 2013, 7:26 PM
I continued to wander through Sevault Canyon on my way around Seven Island. I battled some trainers when I got deep into it and I eventually found the cave that contained the Tanoby Key and I solved the puzzle by pushing some rocks around. I headed back out to Sevault Canyon and I caught a wild Larvitar and a wild Phanpy. I healed my Pokemon at a rest house by doing the Chansey dance thing, and then I headed out once more. I battled the last couple of trainers along the mountains and I eventually arrived at the sea around the Tanoby Ruins. I Surfed around the island and I found a couple of trainers outside of them. I then entered some of the ruins and I encountered some Unown inside. I captured one and then I headed to the other side of the route and I explored more ruins. After finishing that adventure, I flew over to Six Island and I visited the Pokemon Center. I then saved.
12th April 2013, 2:52 AM
Reyes' Journey, Part 7
Well, the day that the S.S. Anne opened up for visitors was the day that Reyes' Magikarp evolved into the ever-might Gyarados. Upon boarding the S.S. Anne, Reyes had plenty of battles from the people who were boarded. Of course, Blue had to be there; but Mankey and Gyarados made slim pickings with them!
The Captain of the S.S. Anne was apparently a Cut master, but he was seasick, leaving Reyes with only the HM, which he taught to Ivysaur. Reyes then spent time training at the Vermilion City Gym.
Gym Battle 3: Lt. Surge vs
Winner: Reyes (by a thread!)
After the Gym Battle, Reyes had no other option but to go through Diglett Cave (since a Snorlax was blocking the path to Lavender Town). He had trouble with a Dugtrio there, and Reyes decided that he'll need to do some extra training before going to the fourth Gym. But Reyes managed to get out, but Prof. Oak's aide wouldn't give Reyes Flash, since he needed 10 Pokemon entries and he only had 9 :/
Reyes healed his Pokemon in Pewter City, then camped out at Route 4, where Reyes decided that tomorrow, he'll use the Vs Seeker to get some more training in for his team.
12th April 2013, 9:31 PM
I headed back to Four Island after exploring Six Island and I picked up some of my Pokemon from the local Day Care Center and I left some others there. I headed over to the port and I took the Seagallop ferry back to mainland Kanto and I arrived in Vermilion City. I headed north through the city and Saffron until I arrived in Cerulean City. I deposited some Pokemon at the Pokemon Center's PC, and then I went north to the bridge area and I Surfed south down the river until I arrived at the entrance to Cerulean Cave. I entered it and I battled some Pokemon inside as I wandered around it. I caught a wild Wobbuffet that I couldn't run away from, then I caught a Parasect and a Machoke. I headed deeper into the cave and I had to crush some rocks with Rock Smash and then use Surf to find the little island where Mewtwo was resting. I saved the game before battling against the Mewtwo.
13th April 2013, 8:26 AM
So I bought all the five GBA Pokemon games to play because I would rather them on a ds console than a computer and I decided to start off with Fire Red. I already have planned teams in a way to get the most Pokemon I can (I think I miss out on Mew, Celebi, Jirachi and Deoxys). Anyways I started off with Charmander because surprisingly that's the starter I have started off with the least amount of times. I was pretty much glued to the DS so I have done a lot in 2 days so I will just go over it in little details.
- Did all the quests up to Pewter
- Defeated Brock no worries with Charmeleons metal
- Caught as 15 pokemon up to Cerulean city
- Caught Oddish and added it to the team becoming the second member
- Grinded it to a Gloom then defeated Misty
- Caught an Abra and grinded that to Kadabra on the way to Vermillion with the old put it first then switch out trick
- Aboarded the SS.Anne and defeated most of the trainers with Gloom and Kadabra
- Got cut
- Defeated Surge with Charmeleon
- Caught a Voltorb and added it to the team
- Arrived in Lavender and saved the game
Charmelon level 34
Gloom level 30
Kadabra level 28
Voltorb level 24

Reyes' Journey, Part 8
Well, in order to get HM Flash, Reyes weighed his options, and decided it was for the best to give Clefairy a Moonstone, and, like the girl in Pewter City said, it evolved to Clefable! Flash was then taught to Butterfree, and then underwent serious training at Route 3. Reyes went through Mt. Moon again, and then proceeded to challenge the Nugget Bridge again for more training.
After the training, Reyes and Ivysaur cut the tree blocking out Route 9, allowing the team more EXP going through. By hitting Route 10 and the infamous Rock Tunnel, Reyes caught his 6th Team Member: Voltorb! Reyes is now still at Route 10, training Voltorb to get it to the same level as the rest of the team. Though Reyes has 6 Pokemon, he is still a little past halfway through the Kanto Journey; Reyes knows he'll definitely catch more Pokemon in the future.

I restarted LeafGreen and have been plowing through it for the last few days, trying to catch as many different kinds of Pokemon as I can so I can get the items from the research assistants. It took me four tries to beat Misty in Cerulean (her Starmie is a real pest). Had to wander down to Vermilion City and go through Route 11 to get my Pikachu high-leveled enough to take on that Starmie. And she STILL KO'ed most of my team. It was a lvl 10 Farfetch'd that dealt the final blow. It promptly went up three levels.
Right now I'm making my way through the Rock Tunnel toward Lavender Town. I am swiftly developing a dislike for Geodudes, because the damn things are EVERYWHERE. And the Golbat/Zubat are almost as bad ¬¬
14th April 2013, 4:21 AM
I battled Mewtwo inside Cerulean Cave and I was able to weaken it and eventually put it to sleep. I took the opportunity to capture it and after tossing at least a dozen Ultra Balls at it, I succeeded. I headed out of the cave with an Escape Rope and I visited the Cerulean City Pokemon Center where I swapped Pokemon on the PC. I withdrew the Mewtwo and I headed over to Vermilion City again. I took the Seagallop ferry to Seven Island and I did some training at Sevault Canyon with the VS Seeker. I also caught some Poekmon in the area and then I took the Seagallop ferry to One Island. I Surfed south to Treasure Beach and I collected some items hidden among the sand. I went to Kindle Road to do some more training with the VS Seeker and I healed my Pokemon at Ember Spa's hot springs. I flew to Three Island after that and I picked some berries off the ground at Berry Forest and saved.
14th April 2013, 9:54 PM
Eh, took up LeafGreen. Went with Charmander, thinking of going through the storyline with a solo Pokemon, then decided to add Rattata. Just because. Haha. Never used him, always made fun of him, so wanted to see how he would turn out. Also got a Pidgey for flying purposes later on. Currently at Pewter, both Char and Rat at L11. Maybe some more leveling before meeting Brock. Definitely want to get Metal Claw on Char first.
14th April 2013, 10:29 PM
I left Berry Forest after picking some berries off the ground, and I headed over to mainland Kanto by taking the Seagallop ferry back to Vermilion City. I headed north toward Saffron City and then I continued to travel until I arrived in Cerulean City. I headed east after buying some items and swapping Pokemon at the local Pokemon Center and I visited Route 9. I Surfed down the river past the Pokemon Center near Rock Tunnel, and I arrived at the Power Plant. I went on a catching spree there and I caught a Pikachu and a Magneton. I eventually arrived at Zapdos's lair and I challenged it to a battle. I was able to weaken the Zapdos but capturing it took a really long time. I eventually caught it in an Ultra Ball, then I flew to Celadon City. I swapped Pokemon there, then I went south past Cycling Road to Fuchsia City and I went to the Safari Zone building. I saved the game in the lobby.
15th April 2013, 9:06 AM
I made my way through the Rock Tunnel (forgot to stock up on repels, though, so it took me for-freaking-ever) and arrived in Lavender Town. I went up the Pokemon Tower to beat all the trainers, and discovered that Gyarados' Bite is super effective against Gastly. After that I made my way down Route 8 to the underground tunnel, stopping for an hour or so trying to catch a Vulpix, then moved on to Celadon City. Beat the gym pretty handily (a lvl 37 Charizard in a grass-type gym is serious overkill... not that there's anything wrong with that...) and then invaded Team Rocket's hidey-hole. Proceeded to fry Giovanni, got the Silph Scope, and went back to the Pokemon Tower. Caught Gastly, Haunter, and Cubone there. I'm probably not going to be able to get Gengar, unless there's some way I can trade between LeafGreen and Emerald with a DS (though I doubt it), but meh. Got the Poke Flute, woke up and caught the Snorlax in Route 16. Done that, I wandered over to Saffron City, beat the Fighting Dojo and obtained Hitmonlee, then saved game and shut off my DS. 44 pokemon in my pokedex, 4 gym badges, and a lvl 42 Charizard. I'm not doing too badly. Also, Meowth's Pick Up ability found me a couple rare berries I'd never even heard of, which will be transferred over to Diamond and planted the next time I Pal Park pokemon over there.
15th April 2013, 11:13 AM
15th April 2013, 10:29 PM
I paid the fee and I entered the Safari Zone in search of some wild Pokemon that I hadn't caught last time. I Surfed across one of the ponds and I eventually encountered a wild Tauros as I entered a new area. I successfully captured it with one Safari Ball, but my other attempts at catching Pokemon weren't successful. I tried to catch a Chansey and then a Scyther, but I failed both times. I went to fish for a Dragonair with my Super Rod in another pond but I didn't find one, so I just gave up. I left the Safari Zone and I swapped Pokemon at the Pokemon Center. I flew to Vermilion City again and I took the Seagallop ferry to Five Island. I Surfed to Resort Gorgeous again and I battled some trainers for some extra cash. I went to Lost Cave and I caught another Haunter. I then returned to Five Island and I traded the Haunter and evolved it into Gengar. I left the Pokemon Center afterwards.
16th April 2013, 10:31 PM
Rattata is fun.
So far, journey continues. Nothing much happened. Went into and out of Mt. Moon, bashed a few Rockets, got a Fossil, reached Cerulean. Yeay. Met Bill and got an S.S ticket. Beat Misty, Rattata evolved into Raticate. Next stop... Vermillion, I believe.
17th April 2013, 5:20 AM
I headed over to Four Island in order to pick up some Pokemon from the Day Care Center. I went to Icefall Cave afterwards to capture some Pokemon and then I left and I sailed back to mainland Kanto on the Seagallop ferry. I decided to train my Pokemon some more so I flew to Cerulean City and I went to Cerulean Cave since there were tons of powerful Pokemon inside that I could battle against to level up my team. I entered the cavern and I trained for about 30 minutes inside before I had to leave in order to heal my Pokemon. I went back to train after that and then I went around Kanto and I used the VS Seeker to re-battle some trainers on various routes. I continued training like that and I eventually headed back to Five Island in order to train there some more. I went island hoping after that and I trained on Six and Seven Island as well before saving the game on Three Island.
