Part 3: First Blood
I'm limiting my image count for this and future updates, they take up too much space to spam.
Route 3 revealed a Spearow. It seemed redundant with Sky around, but I caught it and named him Cloud.
Mount Moon gives up a Zubat. Of course. Speaking of things for which I am low on nicknames... Puta the Zubat will be boxed as well.
Shortly after learning Hyper Fang, Mara was killed by a Bellsprout in Mt. Moon. First death :( Shelly was moved up to active status to replace her.
We beat Super Nerd Miguel and escaped out on to Route 4. Encountering an Ekans, we caught her; Hollie will join the team immediately. Shelly, who is about 200 exp from evolving, will sit in the box again.
There's a fair bit of grinding to do before I'll feel confident enough to take on my rival, so I'll close this update for now.
Michael the Wartortle, Bashful, Level 18
