On my tenth birthday, I was chosen to become a Pokemon trainer. I rushed past my 'friend' Blue's house on my way to Professor Oak's Lab. When I got there, a man waiting outside said that he wasn't there. I decided to go explore and get used to the routes. As I stepped past the fences of Pallet Town, I heard a yell from behind me-it was Professor Oak. "Wait, Don't go yet, its not safe to go without a Pokemon!" I was aware of this at the time, but what I wasn't aware of was how he got there so fast.
