The boat finally landed in Canalave City, which was marvelous because I was beginning to get seasick. Using surf with my Buizel is so much kinder on my belly than these big ships they use. Still, we're finally here, and Solstice, my Linoone, looks up at me curiously as I struggle with the map I picked up at the local PokeMart, along with a few berries, a Repel or three, some Antidotes... Starting in the Sinnoh region, we've decided to travel the land, building up our missing PokeDex entries, making a few friends, maybe finally finding that elusive Red Gyarados, if I can ever figure out this darn map. The gym leader here is Byron, of the steel type. Taken care of with a few well placed Fight, Fire, and Ground moves, and the mine badge is ours! A tip of the hat to Sailor Eldritch (and many apologies for losing my lunch over him during the boat ride, too), and I've laid out my course. First stop, the Canalave Library, renowned for the Sinnoh myths of the lake spirits. I have to admit, though, I'm not so big in the halls of books. Walking down paths with a Pokemon at my side, that's where I'd love to be. And by the looks Solstice is shooting my way, she feels the same. But we've brushed up on history, or at least pretended to, though the tales of Mespirit were interesting, so out we head, taking Route 218 to our next stop - Jubilife City. Fun! I feel adventure calling once more!
