What would you do if you were transported to the region of Johto? Maybe one day some sorcerer or wizard muttered a mysterious spell and you blacked out only waking up in Azalea Town or another Johto city? Would you just sit there for a few moments and pinch yourself telling yourself repeatedly "This is just nothing but a dream..."

Or would you be inquisitive and curious, wanting to learn more about your surroundings? Would you try and find a way to escape the region or would you just shrug and move on with life, settling down in a home? Be creative as you like and explain what you would do once you've entered the amazing region of Johto :3. The more creative the post the better c:!

I'd probably be in Ecruteak City, cos I love the Japanese-inspired buildings.

Or maybe Olivine City for being close to the Battle Frontier and the beautiful ocean.

I think I would try to find my way home, train pokemon and see if they can help me return, it seems alot of people are ready to give up everything they have xD If I always lived in Johto then I'd live in Goldenrod because of all the features like the Magnet Train, Department, etc.

First off I'd be in absolute shock and just stand there for a few moments, trying to recall what just happened before pinching myself a few times, just to check it isn't one of my wonderful farfetched dreams again. When I realise it isn't, I'd let myself get over it for an hour, then calm down and explore around looking for a few Pokemon to capture for companions. I wouldn't mind living in Johto, so I'd just start a journey and aspire to be a great trainer, maybe get a profession in the Pokemon world then eventually settle down in a quiet town like Azalea or even camp out in a cave :3

New Bark Town (Elm's Lab)

Atop Mount Silver (training with Red)

Elm gives me a Starter and I'll train with Red to get stronger to get back home.

I would first try to figure out what happened , then pinch myself a few times, even go as far as to hit myself with a nail-bored, after I learn where I am, I will see about getting myself a stable supply of money, and a team. Then I would see about get a ride to sinnoh, an then to Cynthia about my capabilities of returning to my world, so I will then travel across the land and defeat the gyms.After many years of training I will then beat all the champions, thereby becoming the grand champion, then I will return back to where I first started in this strange new land. Then I will release all my pokemon and move to Mt. Cornett, to settle down.

My pokemon trainer OC, Clover, actually grew up in Azalea town! So if I randomly just woke up one day as her, I would be so excited and grab my pack and pokemon and be on my way to explore the entire region for my own eyes! Siiigh, I'd personally would LOVE to see and climb the ruins/towers. Or go to the beach at Olivine City! Ohhh, but the dancing hall at Ecruteak City? Wow, and shopping at Goldenrod... Eeee!! I'm sorry, I just want to see everything there!

Hey, I'm AJ.

As exciting as it would be in a world where Pokemon actually exist, I'd try to find my way home as soon as I could. People would be wondering where I disappeared to, and I'd rather not put a whole bunch of people into panic just so I can wander aimlessly around Johto.

BUT... if it had a similar timeline to something like Narnia (where a year there can pass while only a second does here), I'd probably make my way to Goldenrod and spend a few days there. It's the biggest city in the region, and I'd assume that I'd be able to see all sorts of different Pokemon. I wouldn't even have to own one- just seeing them would be enough for me.

Hmm... interesting! I guess I belong in a bustling city, Goldenrod! There's much more to do there in my opinion~

If I were in that situation I would probably go to Olivine City and find a home there, then travel all the way to New Bark Town and start my Pokemon adventure. Right after I become champion I'll train in Mt. Silver and be just like Red, waiting for a trainer to show up and battle them.

I'd probably find a way to get to Blackthorn, and chill there for as long as needed. Its secluded, I can become a dragon tamer, and I would be laughing at people all day trying to work their way up route 45.

Seeing as how I'm an electronics nerd, I would just try to see if there's a way to connect the Poké Gear to our telephone and radio frequencies to see if I could contact people I know.
After that failed, I'd probably just live out my life. My family would move on eventually, and if I made my way back, I'd have a collection of epic companions to chill with and destroy whatever opposed me in modern civilization.
And I'd be a better Ash and actually listen to my freakin' theme song and catch more than like 8% of my goal

If some space-time strangeness landed me in Johto, I'd do these things:

  1. Ask Professor Elm to help me get my bearings; the geography of the Pokémon world is still newish to me.
  2. Find a reliable Trainer-friend of Elm's who didn't mind a wheelchair-bound traveling companion (or even a Breeder who specialized in "service creatures" for the disabled, if such a concept existed here).
  3. With some local help, explore the region for any clues that might get me back to Reality As We Know It™.
  4. If returning proved unreasonably difficult, settle down in one of the larger cities (Goldenrod perhaps?) and work on becoming a Coordinator; contest battles seem like the best specialty for me, judging by the original anime and my favorite Pokémon. :-) I might not become Johto League material, but contests are still fun events where I could meet more friends.
EDITED TO ADD: I assumed that contests took place everywhere in the Pokémon universe except for the new regions (Gen V and later). Boy, am I embarrassed... I'd probably go for Coordinator training anyhow, even if it meant a lot of commuting between Johto and the regions that hold contests. Goldenrod City is still a decent home base for a traveler to return to!

I would be in utter shock, like would I have any of the items transported with me? Would I have my iPhone in my pocket or would it just simply cease to exist? I would think about my family but the realisation would come to pass that I may never see them again, so I would probably move on.

After gaining my bearings, I would most likely travel eastward to New Bark Town, assuming I was transported to Cherrygrove, and make my way to the Pokemon lab and get a Pokemon (not steal it like that idiot Silver) and begin my journey. Because Johto is nicely connected, I would most likely go along the trainer route and then I would be able to take the Magnet Train to Kanto.
You don't know how much I would love to settle down on one of the Sevii Islands, occasionally making my way back to Johto, like on an annual pilgrimage, to where I was teleported just to mutter the words. 'This is where it all changed...'.
Check out my Pokemon antics here!

You can now watch me explore Kanto in my FireRed LP, now on the PokeCommunity:

I would love to go to Goldenrod. But first I would see if it is a dream or if it is real. Then I would probably become a trainer then follow the path towards becoming a Pokemon Master then eventually finding my way back home. I would probably try riding on a flying type Pokemon like a Pidgeot to see if there's a way back to my world or I would fly to other regions and become a champion there as well. c;

I'd probably freak out at first xD
But then, I think I'd become a trainer, train as many Eevees as I can and then live in a quiet town like Newbark.
Oh how much I'd love to have a Flygon >.<

I would be that lady who lives by herself on Mount Silver. I would probably spend all my time there training my pokemon and exploring the area to find pokemon to catch. I would also be able to hang with Red :P

I'd wish to be teleported to Olivine City, because of the city's layout, and proximity to the ocean and Battle Frontier. Though wherever I end up to begin with, I'd try to establish myself first with a job and earn some cash before hitting the road and aim to become a Water/Dragon-type trainer. :)

Just keep swimming~!

Realistically speaking. I might go into a state of shock and disbelief and most reasonably (and this is dark so excuse me) kill myself as I might never see my family or friends again.

Fantastically speaking. I would probably head to Goldenrod as it was one of my favorite towns in Johto. I might even try to board the SS Anne and head to Kanto, meet good ol', legendary professor himself, Sam Oaks.

I would most-likely be in shock or sadness as I may never see anyone from my past again. Then after a week in a small home (taken in by a new friend/rival's parents?) I would be ready to restart my life and travel the Johto.
Crossing my rival some times, and I would have a traveling partner(girl, maybe?) and epic Pokemon. That would be fun, beating the champion.
Years later I may settle down at a quiet town with a decent house and a wife n' 2 kids.

I'm all planned out. xD

Good day.
