I decided that I liked the proffesor. He must've given hundreds of kids their first Pokemon, but he smiled kindly at me when he gave me my Cyndaquil anyways. I ran out the front door, feeling ready for anything. My name is Amanda I thought and I can handle anything! I didn't really know what to do, so I just walked. I eventually got to the gates. There were to kids about my age already there.
"HI!" I called "I'm Amanda!"
