Without further ado, let's begin our journey in Pokemon Resolute Version!
### Chapter 1: The Beginning of an Adventure
The game starts with a cutscene where you see a mysterious man talking to someone on a phone. He says that he has found something important in Sylon region and that he needs to report it to his boss. He also mentions that he has encountered some trouble with Team Mirage along the way.
After the cutscene ends, you will be greeted by Professor Birch who will introduce you to the world of Pokemon. He will ask you some questions about yourself such as your name (Logan or Alma), your gender
some grass and trees. You can encounter some wild Pokemon here, such as Pidgey, Rattata, Sentret, Zigzagoon, and Bidoof. You can also find some items, such as a Potion and a Poke Ball. You can use these items to heal your Pokemon or catch new ones.
Route 2 is a forest area with more wild Pokemon and trainers. You can encounter some Bug-type Pokemon here, such as Caterpie, Weedle, Wurmple, and Spinarak. You can also find some other Pokemon, such as Hoothoot, Poochyena, Shinx, and Starly. You can also find some items, such as a Paralyze Heal and an Antidote.
You will also meet some trainers who will challenge you to a battle. Trainers are people who have their own Pokemon and want to test their skills against other trainers. By battling them, you can gain experience points (EXP) for your Pokemon and money for yourself. EXP helps your Pokemon grow stronger and learn new moves. Money helps you buy items at shops or heal your Pokemon at Pokemon Centers.
The first trainer you will meet is Youngster Calvin, who has a level 5 Poochyena. He is easy to beat with any of your moves. The second trainer you will meet is Lass Sally, who has a level 4 Caterpie and a level 4 Weedle. She is also easy to beat with any of your moves, but be careful of Weedle's Poison Sting move, which can poison your Pokemon. Poison is a status condition that makes your Pokemon lose some HP every turn. You can cure it with an Antidote or by visiting a Pokemon Center.
The third trainer you will meet is Bug Catcher Rick, who has a level 5 Wurmple and a level 5 Spinarak. He is slightly harder to beat than the previous trainers, but still not too difficult. Wurmple can use String Shot to lower your speed and Spinarak can use Poison Sting to poison you. Try to use Tackle or Water Gun to finish them off quickly.
After defeating Rick, you will reach the end of Route 2 and enter Solar City.
Solar City is a small town with a few buildings and people. You can explore the town and talk to the people to learn more about the game and the region. You can also visit the Pokemon Center and the Poke Mart.
The Pokemon Center is a place where you can heal your Pokemon for free. You can also access your PC here, where you can store or withdraw your Pokemon or items. The Poke Mart is a shop where you can buy or sell items such as Poke Balls, Potions, Antidotes, and more.
You should heal your Pokemon at the Pokemon Center and buy some items at the Poke Mart before challenging the gym leader. The gym is located at the north of Solar City. It is a building with a red roof and a sign that says \"Solar Gym\". When you enter the gym, you will see Solaris standing in front of a door. He will greet you and tell you that he is the gym leader of Solar City and that he specializes in Fire-type Pokemon.
He will also tell you that he has set up some puzzles in his gym that you need to solve before you can face him. He will then go through the door and leave you alone in the gym.
The gym consists of three rooms with different puzzles. The puzzles involve using switches to activate or deactivate fire tiles on the floor. Fire tiles are red squares that will damage your Pokemon if you step on them. You need to avoid them or turn them off by using switches.
The first room has two switches and four fire tiles arranged in a square shape. To solve this puzzle, you need to press the switch on the left side of the room first, then press the switch on the right side of the room second. This will turn off all the fire tiles and allow you to go through the door at the top of the room.
The second room has three switches and six fire tiles arranged in a cross shape. To solve this puzzle, you need to press the switch on the left side of the room first, then press the switch on the right side of the room second, then press the switch on the bottom side of the room third. This will turn off all the fire tiles except for one in the middle of the cross. You need to step on this fire tile to go through the door at
the top of the room.
The third room has four switches and eight fire tiles arranged in a diamond shape. To solve this puzzle, you need to press the switch on the left side of the room first, then press the switch on the right side of the room second, then press the switch on the bottom side of the room third, then press the switch on the top side of the room fourth. This will turn off all the fire tiles and allow you to go through the door at the top of the room.
After solving all three puzzles, you will reach the final room where Solaris is waiting for you. He will congratulate you for making it this far and challenge you to a battle. He will use three Fire-type Pokemon: a level 12 Growlithe, a level 12 Vulpix, and a level 14 Charmeleon. He will also use potions to heal his Pokemon if they get low on HP.
This battle can be tough if you don't have any Water-type or Rock-type Pokemon on your team. Fire-type Pokemon are strong against Grass-type, Bug-type, Ice-type, and Steel-type Pokemon. They are weak against Water-type, Rock-type, and Ground-type Pokemon. You should avoid using Pokemon that are weak to Fire-type moves and use Pokemon that can resist or deal super effective damage to Fire-type Pokemon.
If you chose Snivy as your starter Pokemon, you will have a hard time against Solaris. Snivy is weak to Fire-type moves and can't do much damage to Solaris' Pokemon with its Grass-type moves. You should try to catch a Water-type or Rock-type Pokemon on Route 1 or Route 2, such as Oshawott, Shinx, Starly, or Bidoof. You can also use Tackle or Leer to lower Solaris' Pokemon's defense and deal some damage.
If you chose Tepig as your starter Pokemon, you will have a fair fight against Solaris. Tepig is resistant to Fire-type moves and can deal some damage to Solaris' Pokemon with its Fire-type moves. However, Tepig is also slow and has low defense and special defense, so it can still take a lot of damage from Solaris' Pokemon's attacks. You should try to catch a Water-type or Rock-type Pokemon on Route 1 or Route 2, such as Oshawott, Shinx, Starly, or Bidoof. You can also use Tackle or Tail Whip to lower Solaris' Pokemon's defense and deal more damage.
If you chose Oshawott as your starter Pokemon, you will have an easy time against Solaris. Oshawott is strong against Fire-type moves and can deal super effective damage to Solaris' Pokemon with its Water-type moves. You should use Water Gun as much as possible to take down Solaris' Pokemon quickly. You can also use Tackle or Leer to lower Solaris' Pokemon's defense and deal more damage.
After defeating Solaris, he will admit his defeat and give you the Blaze Badge and TM50 (Overheat). The Blaze Badge allows you to use Cut outside of battle and makes all Pokemon up to level 30 obey you. Overheat is a powerful Fire-type move that lowers your special attack after each use.
Solaris will also tell you that he knows something about Team Mirage and their leader. He says that Team Mirage's leader is a man named Kelvin who used to be his friend. He says that Kelvin was once a kind and gentle person who loved Pokemon, but he changed after he met someone named Cato. He says that Cato corrupted Kelvin with his evil ideas and made him join Team Mirage.
Solaris says that he doesn't know what Team Mirage is planning, but he warns you not to trust them or Cato. He says that Cato is a liar who only cares about himself and his goals. He says that Cato is dangerous and that you should stay away from him.
Solaris then thanks you for the battle and wishes you good luck on your journey. He says that he hopes to see you again someday.
You can now exit the gym and continue your adventure in Sylon region.
### Chapter 3: The Second Gym Badge
The second destination for Logan is Pinearoma City, where he can challenge the second gym leader of Sylon region: Norton. Norton specializes in Electric-type Pokemon, so it would be wise to have some Ground-type or Rock-type Pokemon on your team.
To get to Pinearoma City, Logan needs to go through Route 3 and Route 4 from Solar
