The first Pokemon you caught on Hg/Ss?


Sith Lord
Pidgey. Seems he would be Useful for the long run.(He was)


Thunder Trainer
Geodude. I picked Totodile and wanted something that would be super effective against Faulkner. Actually, Golem and Feraligatr were the only two Pokemon I used throughout the game, aside from HM Slaves.

I think it was Sentret, as I wanted to catch an HM slave really early on.


I do the whole catch any pokemon i don't have thing, so probably a Rattata. Might have actually been a Mareep though...

Everyone's first catch, Pidgey, even though I scrapped him as my flying type as soon as I caught Lugia. Although he stayed my means of transportation with Fly.

Sentret and Ratatta. Gold and silver respectively.

I didn't catch pidgey till after I fought with Joey.


Resident Jedi Master
Either a Pidgey or a Hoothoot, I can't remember exactly. I usually start off with a Flying-type though.


Sith Lord Victorious
Ha, I guess I'm unique... I picked Spearow as my flyer. Fearow is just so much better than Pidgeot or Noctowl.


I believe it was a pidgey. Never used it though, Hoothoot was my flyer.

My first was a Lv 2-3 Sentret, who was also the first pokemon to be in my Pokewalker, but scrapped shortly afterwards. However, I caught a Spearow in the Pokewalker with that Sentret, who is now a Lv. 55 Fearow.

"So much better" is not correct. They are almost identical in stats, and Pidgeot can take more of a hit than Fearow can.

When i started my SS version, I planned on Pidgeot being my flyer, so i caught a pidgey ealry on. Ended up ditching it for scyther i think. Dragonite became my flyer, as he will in my current HG game.

HOOTHOOT!!! =D ;163;. Named it Hootabucks off a two and a half men episode. Ended up taking it of my team as a lv 43 Noctowl for Lugia, but then i brought in Dragonite as a replacement
