Finally got time to play a quick session. So I start off the game with Cheren and Bianca in my room telling me to choose which Pokemon I wanted.
I went with Gastrodon and named her Gary. Unfortunately Route 1 had a Kingler that refused to be caught in 5 Pokeballs, so no Pokemon for that route. As I moved on to Route 2 I was encountered by a Tranquill. Named her Pleasant. Unfortunately Pleasant wasn't able to live to be a part of the Gym Leader battle because she died. So Gary solo'd the first gym in honor of Pleasant. Unfortunately as I went to the Dreamyard, Gary didn't know how to cut so I had to take that cursed Pansage just to get it done. I finished off Team Plasma at the Dream Yard and now I'm about to go on.
