I woke up, it was like any other day. I got dressed, checked my email and played on my WII. I went downstairs to eat breakfast. My mom said that Prof. Elm was looking for me. I was wondering why, but didn't ask. She gave me my backpack, and other things. I still didn't know why. When I got outside my friend, Lyra, was playing with her Marill. It was quite cute. I see a mysterious red-haired man outside the lab. I ignore him and go inside. Prof. Elm goes on this big speech about how pokémon should walk alongside trainers. Suddenly, he said that I, as in me, was going on an adventure with my very own pokémon. It was unbelievable. I had always wanted my own pokémon, but never had the chance. He asked me if I wanted the Grass-type Chikorita, the Fire-type Cyndaquil, or the Water-type Totodile. I felt an immediate connection with the Totodile. I chose him, and then my adventure began.
