I am now past the Virbank gym (that Leafeon is proving to be really good - didn't sweep, but made earning the win much easier), and debating using two others that decided to tag along from White, albeit in egg form: Turtwig and Bulbasaur. They are now hatched, and Turtwig has a few Audino-given levels on it, but both have yet to participate in trainer battles. I am thinking that they will be boxed, but I just really like the two, and the dual typing gives me some more resists and STABs. Decisions, decisions...
I walked into Route 1 with Bianca and Cheren and we met Professor Sycamore there. She taught us how to catch wild Pokemon, then I got five Poke Balls from her. Cheren and Bianca went ahead and I took my time and explored the route fully while battling wild Pokemon to level up my Oshawott. I eventually arrived at the end of Route 1 and I arrived in Accumula Town. I headed inside of the Pokemon Center and I learned about the different services there. I healed my Pokemon and I headed back outside. I saw a Team Plasma rally in the town square, then N approached me and Cheren and I beat against his Purrloin with Oshawott. N left the scene after that battle, and I explored some buildings around town before saving.
