I walked on Route 2 and battled trainers along the way to Striaton City. I captured the first Purrloin that I encountered since I hadn't captured one of those yet and I made it to Striaton City afterwards and healed at the Pokemon Center. I then talked to everyone in town and went to the Trainer's School and found Cheren studying there. I talked to him and we battled, but I barely managed to defeat him since he sent out his Starter Pokemon first. I got that done and received Oran Berries from him. I healed again and went to the Dreamyard to battle some more trainers there. I talked to a little girl and she handed me a gift Pansear for my journey. I went to train it on Route 2 and saved once it leveled up.
