Our heroes arrive in Sandgem Town, where they meet Professor Rowan. Lucas is distracted by a wild Starly he wants to catch, but doesn't have a Poke Ball to catch it. Rowan hands out a PokeDex to our heroes to search for some Pokemon using it. In the meantime, he also gives our heroes 5 Poke Balls. Lucas can't wait to catch a Starly, and battles it with Chimchar, and he catches it. Our heroes are off to Jubilife City, which is not far from Sandgem Town.
