i started a new game and name myself Brock, and name my rival Kiiroi (What i usually name myself)
Chose totodile, for a future surf slave.
Caught a geodude and named him balboa. Deposited totodile and trained Balboa.
Caught a bellsprout and traded it for Rocky the geodude and trained him up.
Defeated Falkner, never found mudslap more annoying in my life.
Rocky the Onix L10
Balboa the Geodude L12
