The Journal of Mario the Pokémon Trainer:
It's the start of a journey! I chose Snivy as my first Pokémon and nicknamed it Nobuyuki. I also got a Pokedex.
I now have a Purrloin and a Patrat nicknamed Watchy on my team. I arrived in Floccesy Town. I visited Floccesy Ranch that has lots of flowers and plenty of wild Pokémon. Now it's time to explore this wide area!. My friend/rival Luigi also happened to be there as well, and we battled. We met the owners of the ranch and they said that one of their Herdier went missing. I follow Luigi to start the search.
I found Herdier with a suspicious person, who for some reason gave me a TM. After that, he fled.
