I arrived at Silph Co. and I spoke to Steven Stone inside. He said I could have a Hoenn region Starter Pokemon so I chose Torchic. I went to the Pokemon Center in order to deposit it for latter, then I headed south to Vermilion City. I rode on the S.S. Aqua and I battled against the trainers inside. I defeated them all and after resting in my cabin, the ship arrived in Olivine City. I visited the Battle Frontier to the west of town after arriving in Olivine, and I participated in some battles at the Battle Arcade. I defeated seven trainers in the second challenge, but I decided to take a break from that and battle at the Battle Tower a bit for a while instead. I defeated seven trainers there with my Raikou, Gengar and Lapras.
