Since I just completed my Grass monotype (Which you can read about in the Recent Happenings Thread in the Black/White Forum) I decided to do another monotype. I wanted to do it in Heartgold and I wanted it to be a little different than normal so I chose the Rock type.
I did all the beginning stuff and chose Chikorita so my rival would have Cyndaquil. I got the Mystery Egg and Pokedex, beat my rival, and returned to New Bark Town. Once I was able to actually start my journey...I did. Route 46 was my first destination because I wanted to capture my first team member, a Geodude. I began training the Geodude on Route 29 all the way up to lvl 8. I stood before the first trainer on Route 30 and saved the game.
