Like all regions, there are three Starter Pokemon. This was put to vote by the staff, and these were eventually decided upon:
Fire Starter Charmander
Water Starter Totodile
Grass Starter Chikorita
The professor here is Professor Pine.
Each real life week that goes by, we will allow for THREE trainers to start their journey. You can make a trainer by PMing Silver, or any of the mods who volunteer for this duty. We'll talk about it, and choose the three people. In your 'tryout' include the character's FULL profile, and what starter you want.
