Pokémon are quirky creatures with a wide range of different abilities and appearances; Many people, known as Pokemon trainers, capture and train them, often with the intention of fighting others. Young Satoshi has not only dreamed of becoming a Pokémon trainer, but also a “Pokemon Master”, and as his tenth birthday arrives, he finally has the opportunity to make that dream come true. Unfortunately for him, all three available to beginning trainers have already been claimed and only Pikachu remains, a rogue electric-type creature. However, this chance encounter will mark the beginning of a lifelong friendship and epic adventure.
