The Story Starts: Ash Ketchum is a 10 year old boy from Pallet Town who is determined to become a Pokemon Master. His journey begins when he meets Professor Oak to pick his first Pokemon. When he goes there the only Pokemon that is left is Pikachu. This turns out to be great for Ash because Pikachu ends up becoming the best Pokemon and the star of the show. His worst rival, Gary, already has his Pokemon. Anyway, as Ask and Pikachu start their journey Pikachu dislikes Ash but after a while they learn to like each other, a lot. Soon Pikachu gets injured and Ash needs to take him to the Pokemon Center (where they heal the Pokemon). On the way to the Pokemon Center Ash meets Misty who lends her bike to Ash to take Pikachu to the Pokemon Center quicker. Soon Ash gets to the Pokemon Center and Pikachu starts to heal. As Ash is waiting for Pikachu to heal the infamous Team Rocket appeared. "To protect the world from devastation" "To unite all people within our nation" "To denounce the evils of truth and love, To estend our reach to the stars above" "Jessie!" "James!" "Team Rocket! Blast off at the speed of light!" "Surrender now or prepare to fight!" "Meowth, Thats Right!" Team Rocket is a group of Pokemon Theives that steal only rare pokemon. Well after a nice little battle Team Rocket blasted off again. The next day Ash, Pikachu, and Misty who joins them on their journey set off to go to Pewter City. They go threw the maze like Viridian Forest and finally after getting lost a million time make it to Pewter City. Once they reach there Ash battles the Gym leader, Brock. Ash loses the first time he goes there. Then he heals Pikachu at the Pewter City Pokemon Center. After that he super-charges Pikachu so that he can beat Onix (Brock's Pokemon). He battles Brock once more and beats him getting the Boulderbadge. Brock then decides to join Ash, Pikachu and Misty on their great journey that lies ahead of them.
