Fire-Red Apocalocke Update 1: Where No Man Has Gone Before
Spoiler:
(Author's Note: So admittedly, this first challenge is absolutely easy, mostly due to being able to use any mon period as long as they're female. I'd also like to clarify for all the runs I'm not gonna be using the roles, just wanna try a fun limited style set of runs based on scenarios.)

My quest to become champion of this women dominated world begins by obtaining one of the last males left in existence, my special bulb boi himself, Billy the Bulbasaur. This Sassy lad is my key to take on the first two gyms so i can work up an amazoness team to back him up. I fought my annoying rival, who had one of the other males, content on becoming the domnating champion of this world, and lost, so not a good start. Not long after getting Oak his stuff, and getting my pokeballs, I felt a sense of dread, since this is where the journey truly becomes difficult. I went to route 1 and my first encounter was a female Pidgey, a good flying type to use for later. I captured her and named her Caroline, apparently she's quite naughty overall, so Billy might need to avoid her if she ever tries to flirt with him.

After this, I made my way back to Viridian, and on to route 22 for the second encounter. Picking up a bit of a hotheaded Rattata, who I named JJ. This rash rat, along with my other members, were leveled up to level 9 for the rematch against my rival. It was a much easier match with Caroline learning Gust, and i crushed him in return for last time. I went on to route 2, where after a bit of digging around, i felt an annoying jab to my leg, and encountered a rather mischevious and Impish Weedle. I caught it, named it Felicia, and leveled it up with my team before moving into Viridian Forest. In the forest, I would sift through the grass, for something to throw itself at my face, a Caterpie. This Bold lass was captured and named Bee, cause its funny. I got it up to level 7, went through Viridian and all the way to Pewter, in which i took on the first trainer in the gym. I then realized to take on my first big obstacle, I had to probably beef up my women and Billy. I already had Billy at 12 by using him against almost all the trainers in the forest, i just got him up to 14, along with Caroline, JJ, and Felicia to level 10, getting Bee to level 7 to at least get her to Metapod state. Felicia evolved of course, so now she can be 3 times as pokey as before. And I took on Brock, in which I one shotted his entire team with Billy using Vine Whip, it was kind of sad. But I picked up my first badge, and my adventure through this male-less world continued.

Fire-Red Apocalocke Update 2: Grinding to Victory
Spoiler:
With one gym badge down, I made my way onto the route east of Pewter, I fought through several trainers to get to the grass, in which I would be met with a welcome surprise, a female Nidoran on Route 3. I captured it, only to realize by her apologetic behavior, that she was Modest, probably the worse possible nature for a Nidoran. But, since I knew for a fact Nidoqueen is a fantastic early and mid game member, I decided to add her as the sixth member, and named her Iris. Before I would go into the mountain, I took some time to grind up my entire team. I would get them all up to Level 16, evolving Bee, Iris and beefing Billy up into an Ivsysaur in the process. At this point I would go into Mt. Moon and hop around until I got my encounter, a female Zubat, who was told by her friends to go out there cause I had free candy. I caught her, named her Sara, and boxed the Naive thing, since I already had a flying and almost all poison types.

As I traversed the inner mountain, I came across a problem, some goons who called themselves Team Rocket. The story behind these guys was that they let out the virus that killed off all the male pokemon, but there was no evidence found to take them to court. Seeing them skulking around here didn't exactly bode well, but I beat them into the ground anyways and snagged myself the Helix Fossil in the process.

I would pick up a Moon Stone and use it on Iris as soon as I left the mountain, and now I have a big mama gal to protect my team, and at least have something that can take a hit if needed. I used the two chads outside the mountain to teach her Mega Punch and Mega Kick, and make my way onto the ledge and into the grass outside Cerulean on Route 4. I would pick up a happy go lucky Ekans and name her Oprah, I boxed her after. Before I continued, I had a feeling I was pretty underleveled for the gym. So I would head towards the bridge above Cerulean..only to see my rival Joe peeking in the distance. Realizing I was also probably not strong enough for him, I would go to the route 4 grass and grind like heck until all my team members were level 18 or higher, the highest being Billy at level 20. And then I would take on Joe. I got through his team fairly easily, albeit his Charmander almost cooking Caroline. I beat him, and went on to take on the nugget bridge people, beating up the Rocket member in disguise at the end. I would go on to route 24 and capture an Oddish, one who didn't look to upset at being caught at that. The Calm lass was boxed since I didn't need another grass/poison type, but was backup in case I lost Billy. I would go further through the other trainers on the second part of the road, route 25, I would lob a ball at a female Abra for my encounter and capture it. I didn't know how I was gonna evolve it into an Alakazam so I boxed it for the time being. During this route of trainers, I got my Rattata to level 20, and she evolved into the big mama Raticate I deserved. I made it to Bill, who ended up in a female Clefairy's body (go figure). After getting the SS. Anne ticket, I would go on to fight the gym. I plowed through the two trainers with Billy, getting him to level 21 to match the Gym's ace, and I would take on Misty. She would boast her strength being a female gym leader amongst a region of female mons, but I showed her the strength of the last male mon in the region, and Billy decimated her team with a few good Vine Whips, even learned Razor Leaf after. I got the gym badge, and prepared for the journey ahead, with no losses to my name, I was worried about karma coming back to bite me.

Fire-Red Apocalocke Update 3: Death in the Family
Spoiler:
So after I beat Misty, I did the next best thing, and went on a cruise. It kind of sucked cause I had to fight a bunch of people who for some reason wanted to kick my butt for barging into their private rooms for petty items. But as I made my way to the bridge, I encountered my rival once more. At this point I had ignored route 6 due to not being able to catch anything there until i get a fishing rod, but back on route 5 I had caught a female meowth, that I named Jesse. She didn't say much ironically due to her Quiet nature. Back on the ship, I fought my rival, with most of my team having been grinded up to meet his levels. I beat him again, sent him on his way, and got Cut for my endevors. Before this, I had picked up Dig to teach to Iris for Surge, since I knew she would pound him.

Before that, I had gone onto the route next to the city, and caught a Spearow, along with cleaning house on the route for exp. Along with this, I picked up the Old Rod and caught a Magikarp on Route 6 I named Helga. I also went into diglett cave to catch a female diglett I named Destiny. I returned to take on Surge, and after beating his trainers, getting the puzzle first try, I would pound all 3 of his mons with a single Dig for each. Now in possession of the manliest Badge out there, I would move on to cut my way into the route next to Cerulean, where I would catch a second spearow, due to nothing on the route being any different from what I had caught before or would be. I cleared through the trainers, and decided against getting an encounter on route 11 until I had a Good Rod.

I toiled through rock tunnel, catching a Geodude in the process, Which I promptly named Pauline. And after that Flash-less experience, I made it out into Lavender Town. I spotted my rival up in the tower, and since I had gotten my mons decently high leveled from trainers and such, I decided to just take him on. Things were going well, until his Exeggute put my Pidgeotto to sleep, along with confusing me with their attacks. I just foolishly waited for them to wake up, ready to attack and finish it, only for her to hit herself in confusion, and the Exeggute finishing her off. Feeling completely destroyed on how I didn't pay attention to the confusion, I would swiftly murder the eggs with my Beedrill, and pound the rest of his stupid team into the ground.

Ironic, how my team member died in a place of a pokemon graveyard. Hopefully her spirit would find solace somewhere, and that she hopefully could forgive me for being so stupid. I would drop her corpse in the dead pc box I had saved, and replaced her with a far less superior Spearow, Bea, the extra one I had picked up on a route before. I decided to rest for the day since then, maybe tommorow would bring about better chances.

Fire-Red Apocalocke Update 4: Too Many Trainers
Spoiler:
So after the fight against Joe, I would go to move on from Lavender into Celadon, Catching a Growlithe in the process. I ended up grinding my Spearow up to the rest of my team and evolving it into a Fearow. I would go to grind my team all the way up to level 29 to be on par with her, albeit using a lot of the trainers to level them up. I took down her team with surpising ease thanks to Beedrill and Butterfree of all things. I've learned this region is very...VERY sparse with its selection of pokemon to use. I've been making do with what I have now, but I have only seen one or two difference on occasion in the tall grass, making it difficult to get new encounters. With Erika's Badge, I would set off to the Game corner to loiter around, finding a Rocket grunt having the same idea.

After kicking his butt, he sped down into a secret entrance in the Game corner, and loe and behold, turns out Team Rocket wasn't just a harmless company after all. They had an entire facility built under Celadon, 4 floors I recounted, filled to the brim with the thugs. If the people didn't have proof on these guys being the cause of the male exctinction, this should probably be enough. I pounded each and every one of them, snagging a key card off of one. I made my way to the lowest level and beat through a couple more only to find...Giovanni, the long lost Viridian Gym Leader. Everyone had just assumed he had gone missing, but all this time he had been running this company underground, making money off of bio-weapons and testing them on other people's pokemon. The destruction of the males probably was something that got out accidentally, angered at him, I would take on his smug, pompous butt and wipe the floor with him. His Kangaskhan however almost completely crushed my Fearow. He seemed surprised he lost, but left while leaving me something, a Silph Scope...a clue.

Silph Co. was one of the companies investigated after the exctinction, nothing was found, but the company has been somewhat quiet ever since. And I think I had a feeling why now. I would go on to get some Tea from a nice granny in Celadon, giving it to the thirsty guards in the segways to Saffron. I would step in only to find it crawling with goons. No wonder it was blocked off, they had the whole city under lockdown of all things. Whatever they were planning, I had to put a stop to it..but before I could do that, I would traverse the Pokemon Tower, freeing some crazy possessed people and beating up the ghost of a dead mother. At the top I found the head monk being threatened by more Rocket goons, they were swiftly dealt with, but i noticed their arsenal of pokemon was growing more dangerous. He thanked me by giving me the Pokeflute, which I used to get past the annoying snorlaxes onto the watery dock route. I would go through what felt like an endless wave of trainers, but not before picking up a Super Rod to catch a Gyarados on the same route. It was a grueling annoyance, and I was glad I picked up Fly in Celadon, and evolved Billy. Otherwise it would have been a continuously annoying adventure. But, I made it through, and into Fuschia City. They had a gym, but I definitely wasn't ready to go for it. I explored a bit, and decided to head back to Saffron to check out a building that was unguarded by Rockets, a fighting dojo. Summary wise, I beat them only to find they had two male pokemon left in their balls...but dead like the rest of them to my dismay. I thanked them for their troubles and headed out, thinking to myself...and then I knew my next location to go to. The Safari Zone

Fire-Red Apocalocke Update 5: Gyms, Death, and the Mafia
Spoiler:
So I was true to my word, I made it to the Safari Zone. I caught an Exeggutor and named her Murderer, like she was. I would quickly make my way through to pick up some Gold Teeth for the bumbling old man in town, and the HM for Surf. I got Strength from the old man and taught it to my Raticate. I then trained everyone up to level 43 to take on Koga. Unfortunately, it wasn't enough. I was going to use my Beedrill and Butterfree against his team, but one of his trainers had a Hypno. And this Hypno got a crit psybeam on my Beedrill, and it would swell and burst into buggy goop from the strain of the psychic energy. In a rage, I would steamroll through the rest of the gym, and used my last remaining bug type to burn through Koga's team. Turns out Butterfree with a better psychic move can work wonders on poison types. I would scoop up my bee's remains with a sadness, and put it in the box with my bird. Two members who had been with me since the start, gone.

I couldn't this stop me, I had a purpose now, a mission to destroy this monstrous group and work my way to Champion, to become a better model for this region to look towards for. Before I did, I would replace the empty spot on my team with a Growlithe. I was going to evolve it after i got it to level 49, as it learned Flamethrower then, getting it up to at least 43 with the rest of my team. I would storm my way into Saffron, and into Silph Co.'s headquarters. The 11 floored building was crawling with goons, teleportation technology, and to my dismay, my rival. I would destroy goon after goon, picking up a Card Key and making sure not a single one escaped with a mon alive. With them beaten, I'd let the authorities handle them. Then I ran into Joe, and found he had gotten his Charmander to a magnificent Charizard. He nearly killed one of my members, but I would quickly make swift work of his team. At this point, my Butterfree had learned Silver Wind and was the highest member on my team due to taking out the entirety of the mono poison teams of the rocket group. I was gifted a Lapras from the person next to my rival, I would decide to replace Iris with her, now named Marley, after I beat the monster. And speak of the devil, I would step into the President's office and came face to face with him. Giovanni, leering over me confidently. He had a stronger team this time, but I was two steps ahead of him. I had taught Surf to Iris, so that got rid of his ground types. His Kangaskhan was a different story, having to resort to using Billy to Sleep Powder and razor leaf it to death. He would make his escape before I could catch him, threatening to see me again.

The President gave me something called a Master Ball, a powerful thing said to be able to catch any mon...I'd have to save it for later. But with Saffron freed from the tyrannical rule of team rocket, and I watched the grunts be led out of the building cuffed and broken..I could only wonder about Giovanni. But My wondering wouldn't last long, I had a gym to take on. I would replace Iris with Marley, and take the time to get her on par with the rest of my team excluding Butterfree. With Silver wind under my belt now, it was a fair breeze through it, pun intended. Sabrina boasted power, but with Bee severely overleveled from the Silph Co. adventure, she one shotted every member of her team with Silver Wind. During this process I would also use some of the gym trainers to get Growlithe to 49, and buy a fire stone to use to evolve her into an Arcanine. I held the 6th badge close, 2 more to go, then I would be ready to take my place as Champion of this region.

Fire Red Apocalocke Update 6: The Road to Victory Road
Spoiler:
After taking down Sabrina, I moved on to Fuschia again, going to surf down, catching a tentacool in the process. I would go through the several swimming trainers and Seafoam Islands for some extra items. I would come across something..different. Some kind of large Ice bird unseen by most. It seemed peaceful in its own hidden corner of the region, so I left it be. I would make my way to Cinnabar island, but found the gym was annoyingly locked shut. I would make my way to exploring the pokemon mansion, catching a koffing inside. I would traverse the abandoned halls and rooms to eventually find the Secret Key. Before Taking on the gym I would grind my team that wasn't overleveled to 47. I would pretty much just turn the gym into a small lake with how many surfs i use to defeat every trainer. To the point Marley was overleveled enough to wash away Blaine's entire team.

I would then grind my team up to level 50 on the surf mons..and made my way to Viridian, wondering how I was going to get my final badge. But then an old man told me the gym leader was back! And my heart dropped. I would storm my way into the gym, pushing past each trainer until I was face to face with the smug man himself. Giovanni stood as my last roadblock to Victory Road, and I wasn't going to let him stop me. He was confident nothing could defeat him, but he never had met my new team member, and Lapras washed away any hopes he had of defeating me again. Broken and defeated, I accepted the badge from him as I turned to leave the gym. I could have let him be arrested for his crimes, but I had left him a broken man, defeated and his team drowned. Maybe I'd see him again eventually, but now I had another situation...Joe.

I found him on the route to the badge path, ready to take me on again. I dealt with most of his team pretty easily. but his Charizard was no laughing matter, he almost destroyed my Lapras, requiring me to defeat him before he could get the chance. After that close call, he left, stating he'd see me again. I doubted that since with his team lost again, he had no chance against the League.

I would turn in badge after badge to the different checkpoints, until I stood at the mouth of Victory Road. The elite four and the unseen champion awaited, the apparent leaders and strongest trainers of Kanto who turned a blind eye to the epidemic that whittled down the population of pokemon. I had to defeat them, and prove I was gonna be a champion to really show the region what really happened.

Apocalocke Final Update: Road to Champion
Spoiler:
I would make my way through Victory road, pushing rocks, fighting annoying trainers, and then..i would see it in the horizon as i left the cave. The Pokemon League.
I would step through, going to buy healing items and selling what I didn't need. I would use all the stat medicines i had to boost my members, grinded them up to level 60 on the Road..and i stepped through the door.

The first was Lorelei, the ice mistress, she had a sly cool demenor that made me nervous, but I was ready for this. She started with her Dewgong, which I would sent Billy out to Razor Leaf, slicing it apart easily. Then she sent out her Slowbro, who was a wall to say the least. I swapped into Bee, but was put to sleep whilst damaging it. This made me switch out into JJ, who almost died to a Surf from it. I switch back out to Billy, who got yawned but killed it with Razor Leaf. She then sent out her ace, her Lapras. I would counter her with Marley, Body slamming it over and over, using full heals on my own to get rid of paralysis until it was down. I had literally beaten her Lapras to death with my own lapras. Her Cloyster was one shotted by Billy, sliced up like her first two mons. Then I accidentally left Billy in against a Jynx, I would switch him out quickly into Rin who melted the creature into a puddle with a fake blonde wig. And with that, Lorelei was defeated, without any deaths to my name just yet.

I would step past her, staring back at the first defeated, I had crippled her team and her icy defense. I just had 3 to go before taking my place as Champion, and allowing the truth of what happened to get out. Next was Bruno, I wasn't super nervous about him overall. He was a man of action, of strength, of training. Before this I would use a TM to teach Billy Giga Drain over Razor Leaf due to his Special attack being leagues higher. I would test it out on his first Onix, I absorbed every ounce of life from it in one shot. His next mon was Hitmonchan, who I would pit against Bee. I then realized a problem...Bruno had male pokemon. This guy knew of the epidemic and kept his pokemon in tip top shape to survive it. Or...he knew about it all this time and knew how to prevent his team from being afflicted. I got flashbacks to the dead Hitmonchan and Hitmonlee at the fighting dojo and how badly it had affected the members, and I would clench my fists. I would prepare to counter him with Beem but found out a problem, his Hitmonchan had Rock Tomb. I would swap out into Bea, who i would use to Drill Peck it to death. Then..he sent out his ace, a male Machamp, beefy, strong, and annoying since I had no way of obtaining one before this. I would send in Rin to remove the speed drop i had gotten from rock tomb before on Bea, only to find rock tomb again, I would send Bea back out, knowing she had taken a Rock Tomb before, but would, to my dismay, be struck with a Crit.
I watched as the rocks cascaded down, snapping her wings and crushing her body, buriend in a stone tomb, crushed, feathers falling from the sky around me like a serenade of her soul passing by...and then I lost it. I had lost another flying type, one who did what they could to be a good replacement for my old one, and I had grown fond of their strength to be good if not better..and there they lay..dead. I sent Rin back out, erupting a Flamethrower to burn the bulky mon to a crisp, nothing but charred ash was left. He sent out his other Onix, life drained from his body through Billy. He sent out his final mon, Hitmonlee. I sent Rin out to finish it off..but I got cocky. He used Mega Kick, a low hitting move, that critted. it got her in the red, beaten her to near death. as she crumpled over, I sent out Billy, my one male mon, having survived the scourge, against this terror's own male monster. I would give the order, and he drained everything that was left of him. Once again, Billy was the last Male monster left standing in Kanto. I would walk past Bruno, he was defeated, broken, his perfectly trained team all obliterated. I thought of Bea...but I kept moving forward, I had come too far to look back now, I just had to win this...for her sake.

Next was Agatha, a powerful ghost type user...or..poison type. It was hard to tell really. Either way I had to be careful, her Gengars were nasty, along with the rest of her team. So I would start with Bee, stun sporing her first Gengar, and while it would remain paralyzed and unable to move. I tore its ectoplasmic body apart with Psybeam, watching as it dissipated into nothing but gas in the air. She would send out a Golbat, one I would pit Marley against, it confused her, and she hit herself once. but she would then freeze it middair and watch it come shattering down with Ice Beam. She would send out Arbok next, who i pitted against Bee. I would stun spore it, only for it to Sludge Bomb her several times. I had to full Restore to remove the poison and heal, but I got lucky as the paralysis kicked in and stopped it. I would finish it off after with Psybeam, watching it slam over, mind broken and ravaged. Then she sent out her ace, her second Gengar. I pitted Marley against it, knowing she could tank its special based attacks. I used this moment to heal up my team while Marley took hits, healing her up in the process, and surfing the Gengar after. dissipating its poisonous body in the water. Then finally, her Haunter. It knew no attacking moves other than Dream Eater. So I would pit Bee against it, full healing every time she was asleep until I finished it with a Psybeam. I had broken her smug facade..but she congratulated me. Her dead mons just..reappearing behind her again...made sense I suppose. She seemed proud I had come so far with a goal to reveal to the world the horrors of what I had unraveled, and she deemed me worthy of the title of Champion, I just had two more challenges in my way. I would thank her, stepping past into the final Elite four chamber.

Lance...the dragon master. He was the one I had prepared for more than any other. He smugly accepted me as a challenger, impressed I had come this far, but deemed my destruction imminent. He started with a Gyarados, one I would counter with Billy. I would take it down like I had all the other Gyarados I had encountered, I Sleep Powdered it, and Leech seeded it along with giga drain to defeat it. His Aerodactyl was next, one who I would surf over in one blow with Marley. His final 3 mons, boasting strength with the dragon type, all fell in one blow, one by one, frozen by Marley. I watched each one fall with ease...and Lance was defeated. He would look shocked..but he shook my hand, and congratulated me. I thought it was over...but he revealed something to me, I had to beat the Champion, and it was none other than Joe! He had beaten each of them already behind my back to get to the top, he was planning to take the glory of being champion so that none may ever see him as weak ever again. I would walk past lance, thanking him for the battle, and headed up the pathway into the large mechanical room.

And there he stood, Joe, the one who had defeated my Pidgeotto all that time ago, stood in my way, the way of exposing the truth of what this region had gone through. He didn't care, he just wanted to be seen as the strongest, the most powerful trainer in the region, no matter what it took. And he was planning on destroying my entire team to prove it. I stared him down, my team missing one member, and I started the battle. He started with his Pidgeot, but I had changed members up this time. I would sent out Marley to ice beam it, watching it shatter on the ground. He didn't seem phased, they were common in his eyes, he could always get another one. He switched out to Rhydon, who i would Giga Drain with Billy, watching as it crumpled over, nothing but a rocky lifeless statue. His eye twitched..but it was no matter, it was quad weak anyways. He could always replace it with something better. He would send out Alakazam, I'd send out Bee against him, Silver winding him. But when I was going in for a Stun Spore, he switched...to his Charizard. He had gotten stronger, he had learned to switch when necessary. I had a problem now, if I switched to Marley. She was below half health from taking a hit from Pidgeot. She wouldn't survive a fire Blast from him..and if I lost Marley. I lost the battle, because nothing else could take a single fire blast from him. I Didn't know what to do....In my thought however..I looked up..and I saw Bee, looking back at me. I saw determination in their eyes, determination to win, even if it means..they weren't there to win with us. I would take a deep breath, and nod, using a hyper potion on Marley and turning around. as I heard the roar of the flames behind me...and the sound of Bee being burned away, dissipated into not even ash...I would tremble, the sound of my rivals laughter echoing behind me. As I stood up and turned, and sent out Marley. I would angrily order her to Rain dance, as his fire blast did nothing to me. And I would have her use surf. I watched as the powerful crashing waves swept up, and came down, slamming against the charizard as its flame was put out. It was slammed against the wall of the arena as water spilled around, a soaked Joe would look behind to see his partner slumped against the cracked wall, dead. And I saw something in him I hadn't seen before...actual anger. Actual real anger and devestation at losing a team member, something I had been feeling all this time.
And he turned to me, tears speckled in his eyes as he sent out Exeggutor, the same pokemon who had killed my team member all that time ago, and I sent out JJ so I could stall the Rain dance..knowing he had a Gyarados left. But I hadn't anticipated the strength of it, as it would use Giga Drain..and in my anger I had made a mistake...and watched as JJ...one of the first mons I had every captured...was sucked dry of all her energy, and she slumped over, dead and defeated. 3 members, all with me through my journey, crushed and defeated in this arena. Then...the rain stopped. JJ had bought just enough time, for me to send out Rin, and yell out an order. I watched as she let loose a Flamethrower, and the murdering grass type who had killed not one, but two team members now, and watch as it would burn away. He was on the ropes now, sweating, upset, exhausted, and most of his team was dead around him. He would send out Gyarados next, and I'd treat it like I had others. I sleep powdered it, and drained every ounce of life force it had left with Billy. But he thought he had a chance, he had Alakazam left. Who was specially bulky, I sent out Rin, and he mocked my strength, stating it was nothing like his..and before he could even utter an order to attack. I sent Rin to use Extreme Speed, the only physical move she knew..one that could attack first...and watch as she shot forward, wind rushing past her as she vanished almost instantly. then appeared, slamming into the psychic type's chest...as its armor plate cracked..its ribs shattering as it would ripple and slam through the air, crashing into the wall...destroyed. Joe fell to his knees as his final prayer flew past him to its doom, and he would stare at the ground, completely defeated. Questioning on how he could have lost, then..we both heard footsteps behind us.

Professor Oak stepped in, and stared around at the grave sight. He sighed and walked up to me, congratulating me for my strength and tenacity in this fight, staring at his defeated grandson. and he would state how disappointed in the type of trainer he had become, stating he could never win because he didn't have something I did, a bond with my team. Joe couldn't even look him in the eye, Professor Oak would walk me past him into the Hall of Fame. he held up a pokeball to me after I had returned what was left of my team, Bea's ball. I would look at it..and silently hug him..thanking him for giving me the chance to create bonds like this..to have such a wonderful team. He pat me on the back, and gestured me to the machine, to etch my name in time as Kanto's new Champion...and with that..I made the decision..I would make this Region a better place, a safer place, and one that could be fixed and repaired from what Team Rocket had done. and with that, I placed each ball into the socket..and watched the machine run up my name and team...as the Champion of the Kanto Region.
