If Pokemon were real, and we lived in the Pokemon universe:
What region would your journey begin in?
Where in that region would be your hometown?
A: Snowpoint City. Because it reminds me of my hometown.
Assuming you get it from an egg, what Pokemon would become your partner*?
A: Piplup. Its evo is always been my favorite pokemon(aside from Latios and Absol), ever since it's released.
What nickname would you give him/her?
A: Rigel, like the bluish-white star at the foot of the constellation of Orion.
