He stole two Pokemon. He stole his starter and the Sneasel from the man in Cianwood City who gives you the Shuckle.
I thought that he had the Sneasel from the start..?
I like Silver and Blue best. They were just plain awesome. I love how Blue says 'Smell 'ya later!' like that. And Silver was hard to beat. Blue was also always one step ahead.
Worst was Hoenn. May and Brendan gave up halfway, and they didn't fully evolve their starter. That is Fail.
