“And so after a long battle Kanto Champion Red has finally defeated Lance, the champion of the Johto Region! It is the first time in history one trainer may call himself champion of two different regions!”
It was hard to believe that a simple boy from Pallet Town could achieve such a high goal. Mike smiled when he heard the report on the radio. Today his own journey would finally start. He had a late start, because he first had spend two years studying with professor Oak, the same man he would receive his first Pokémon from today.
He quickly finished his breakfast and tightened his shoelaces before saying goodbye to his parents. When he closed the front door of his house he realised things would change drastically now, he probably would not return here for a long time. But his mood changed when he thought of all the adventures he hopefully would be having.
When the turned around the corner someone bumped into him and fell backwards to the ground. Mike recognized her as he had seen her a few times before. Quickly he reached out his hand to help her get back up.
“Are you all right?”
