Charging through the tall grass, my six most loyal compatriots at my side, I enter battle after battle on a never-ending quest to become the very best. For the past three weeks, my life has been devoted to the art of combat. I’ve obliterated all who stand in my way, only granting mercy to the rare few deemed worthy of joining my steadily growing army. All others must perish. I’ve traveled countless miles, climbed mountains, scoured shorelines and wandered through forests. I’ve fed a sword a cupcake. This has been my first experience with Pokemon.
