I restarted White today, and decided to go with Snivy, as I have never used him before. After battling Cheren and Bianca, I obtained the xtransciever and the Pokedex. Then after battling N in Accumula town, Mom gave me Running Shoes. I battled trainers and fought Bianca and Cheren in Striaton and went through the Dreamyard. I lost to Chili, however, and will try again tomorrow.
