The guidebook recommends level seventeen for the first gym. Dys no. I blasted through those noobs with a level eleven Snivy and a level ten Panpour (Jacqued and Delukey, respectively). I've also got a female Patrat (Patch), male Lillipup (Sage), and a female...the cat thing. Purrloin. AKA Evera. Also, I've got a picture of Frap's mask, which they briefly stopped off for (and to raid my fridge), and a video of a nice little note left for me in the strategy guide.
