@SelenaStar: You can catch the Pikachu in Viridian Forest. Granted
1) Things like give-away Pokemon and Rare Items are usually rewards for ranking up, although there may be quests to obtain them otherwise.
2) You will mostly see and catch Johto/Kanto Pokemon. But, exemptions can be made. Example, you can also catch Starlys in a area where you can find Pidgeys. Make sense?
3) WTFF is a Joltik? Explain that to me first.
4) Mankey is on Route 22. Granted
5) Sure you can eventually meet up with your original starter.
@Kitred123: Gastly Granted at Sprout Tower.
@Fire-run: Last time I checked, you are not in this RP.
