Ariel9, your character's name shall be Satoshi the Male Pokemon Trainer.
You get Piplup for your starter. However! As soon as possible, you must trade Piplup for a level 5 male Pikachu, and use THAT as your starter instead! Pikachu must always be the highest level Pokemon in your party until you receive Random the Togepi. To prove its worth, Pikachu must solo Roark, even if it means it is disobedient! Pikachu may not equip a Light Ball unless you have 7 gym badges, and Pikachu may only evolve to Raichu after receiving 8 gym badges. Good luck!
