My name is Gold and this is how my pokemon journey began.
Started game. Hit enter on name select. Hello, my name is GOLD. Picked Cyndaquil. Did the stuff for Elm. Rival ended up with default hit-enter key name as well "SILVER"
Hacked in Ledyba (Silver Exclusive)
Hacked in Chansey (Not available till Kanto and I REQUIRE a 2nd pokemon at this point. Stupid Falkner's flying types.)
Ledyba LV 2
Cyndaquil LV 9 (Only here for Ledyba & Chansey to switch train level up. going for about LV 8 each on wild pokemon)
