Here is another update on my fire red run with meowth/persian:
-Had a battle againist my rival, who was really easy for me.
-Dominated every trainer in nugget bridge and went straight to bill's house, where i got the s.s. ticket.
-Beat Misty and earned my second badge.
-Arrived in Vermillion City and boarded in the S.S Anne.
-A lot of trainer battles there, including one more againist my rival.Before the ship departed, captain gave me the HM for Cut.
-Had an easy time againist Lt.Surge and got my third badge.
-The next challenge is Rock Tunnel, so I better have some rest before attempting this.
