Slow but fantastic
In the begining when you first turn on into the game after being asked your sex and your name. You must answer the question of Prof. Oak's. Which is "what is his name again?" When you start as others have said save the game before you carry on in your adventure.
After you save the game whether it's a new or used game, you must click yes to keep this game if it is indeed what you want. Now after this you will go down stairs and go outside. Once outside you will walk to the route leading away from the little town where you will be stopped by non-other than Prof. Oak. He will talk to you and tell you to follow him.
You will have a talk with him and his grandson about how he is to old for the things he is asking you to do. AS you can see you might see the Poké balls sitting on the table away from you and the others. Once you're done talking you have a choice to choose between Charmander, Squirtle, and Bulbasaur; note you can choose which ever one you want but you cannot choose which sex it is. Once done with that you can give the Pokémon a nickname that you will have till the end of the game unless you find one of the certified name raters(name changers).
After all this you must battle the grandson. Either he will beat you or you will beat him. Next stop is to go next door to your house and ask the grandson's sitter for a map of the region. Then you will be on your way.
You will have to embark on this adventure of you and your pokamon alone.
If have any questions or comments you can just leave them nicely. Try not to offend anyone
