Well I've been playing for over 3 hours now. I've caught a lillipup, patrat, munna, and Purrloin. Other than that:
- Beat first gym, pansear that I received helped a bit.
- Beat the Team Plasma grunts at dreamyard and received the c-gear from Fennel.
- Left Striaton City and evolved my Samo (Oshawott) into Dewott on route 3 where I'm currently at.
