So, I received my Bulbasaur from Sycamore and a Mega stone. (I'm pretty happy about that, since I wasn't expecting to get one so early in the game. ) I went to see Serena at the Cafe Soleil and then exited the cafe afterwards and traveled around a bit more until I got to the worker who tells you that there is a blackout and that you can't go any farther. So I went back to the entrance of Route 5 and met a guy who told me about O-power. I'll have to get to using O-power sometime today, it sounds really interesting. Right now I just got into my first horde battle with 5 Gulpin vs. my Froakie, it won. But it took a lot of damage. Now I'm fighting twins and my Froakie was knocked out by Plusle and Minun's Quick Attack move. I withdrew my Level 100 Deoxys and sent out Yalik (Poochyena) and the Bulbasaur I received from Sycamore.
