As a Pokémon trainer, you will begin your Pokémon journey with a starter Pokémon either Water, Fire or Grass type from a region Pokémon Professor. The Pokémon Professor will give you a Pokedex and Poke Balls. The Pokedex is a device that records and gives information about all various Pokémon around the world. Pokémon can be added to the Pokedex by encountering them in battle. The Pokedex will not be recorded until the Pokémon trainer catches a Pokémon with a Poke Ball receives it as a prize/gift or acquires it in a trade. A Poke Ball is an item that is use for catching and storing Pokémon. To capture a Pokémon, you have to weaken it first using your Pokémon to attack it. Then throw your Poke Ball to capture a Pokémon. You need to have six Pokémon in your party. If you have over six Pokémon on your party, the other Pokémon will be sent to PC at the Pokémon Center. The Pokémon Center is a place to heal your Pokémon when they’re become weary in battles. If you’re in a city or town, you can shop at the PokeMart for potions, Poke Balls and items. You earn money by defeating other Pokémon trainers. You have to travel around the world capturing, evolving and defeating other trainers in battle.

You must defeat a criminal organization that’s trying to take over the world through the misuse of Pokémon. These criminal organizations are Team Rocket, Team Magma, Team Aqua, Team Galactic, Team Plasma, and Team Flare. They all have a goal to use Pokémon as tools and rule the world.

Pokemon Villainous Teams

Pokémon can level up in battles by defeating other Pokémon. The Base Stats are HP(Hit Points), Attack, Defense, Special Attack, Special Defense and Speed. If you reach a certain level, your Pokémon will evolve and become stronger. The max level is 100. You have to explore cities and towns to look for Gyms. As a Pokémon trainer, you need to beat eight Gym Leaders to earn a badge. If you don’t have enough badges and if your Pokémon is too powerful, your Pokémon won’t obey you. The more badges you get, the more likely your Pokémon will obey you. Once you collected eight badges, you need to go to the Pokémon League to beat the Elite Four and finally the Pokémon League Champion to finish the game. Finally you finally became a new Pokémon League Champion.

The Pokémon games I beat are Pokémon Colosseum, Pokémon Leaf Green, Pokémon Ruby, Pokémon Diamond, Pokémon Pearl, Pokémon Black, Pokémon X, Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, and Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon. I feel proud of myself for beating 10 Pokémon games and I end up getting myself a trophy for reaching a milestone. There’s still more Pokémon games I need to beat in the future. My greatest accomplishment of playing Pokémon Diamond and Pearl is that I beat the Pokémon League Champion Cynthia in a flawless victory using only one Pokémon and that is my starter Fire type Pokémon Infernape. I always start Pokémon games with a Fire starter Pokémon. My favorite Fire type Pokémon are Charizard, Infernape, Blaziken, Emboar, Typhlosion, and Delphox. I love Fire type Pokémon the most but I also like Dragon, Fighting, Water, and Grass type Pokémon. Pokémon has been my childhood and I finally became a True Pokémon Fan. I truly deserved the title “Pokémon Master“.

Pokemon fire starters

Pokémon taught me life lessons:

FRIENDSHIP– The bond is based on mutual respect, the ability to know what your limitations are, and love for someone who depends on you and whom you depend on.

KINDNESS– Treat your friends and your Pokémon the way you want to be treated, and you’ll live a happy and fulfilling life.

NATURE– Nature will find its balance with you or without you.

SPORTSMANSHIP– Winning isn’t everything. When you win or lose in battle, always show sportsmanship.

NEVER GIVE UP– When you lose in a Pokémon battle, always never give up. Always come up with a strategy of how to beat your opponent in a Pokémon battle. When you put your mind into something, you’ll win. Those are the life lessons I learned from Pokémon.

When I was a little kid, I always love Pokémon and I always watch Pokémon on TV all the time. What I like about Pokémon is the storyline, characters, battles, Pokedex, and raising Pokémon. I got myself into Pokémon by watching the show, collecting Pokémon trading cards, drawing Pokémon, reading books about Pokémon’s element types, abilities, strengths and weakness. When I was growing up into a teenager, I’ve made a mistake for getting rid of all my Pokémon collection because I was growing up. I missed a lot of action watching Pokémon. I would’ve kept all my Pokémon collection years ago. At 21 years old, I really miss all my old Pokémon Collection so I end up buying a lot of Pokémon trading cards, Pokémon stuff animals, Ash Ketchum’s hats, Ash Ketchum costume, Pokémon Badges, Pokémon games, Pokémon DVDs, and Pokémon manga books and etc. I feel happy that I got my collection back but this time, I’m not getting rid of them.Ash Ketchum is my favorite character in Pokémon because he’s the main protagonist. He travels around the world with Misty and Brock. Despite that Ash never grows up and never success as a Pokémon trainer but I still like Ash Ketchum. I want to be a Pokémon trainer just like Ash Ketchum. I LOVE POKEMON!!! 🙂 If everyone is interested to learn about Pokémon or loves Pokémon, go to www.pokemon.com. #Pokémon #PokemonBadges #PokémonCollection #Anime #AdventureAnime #FantasyAnime #PocketMonsters
