*Just beyond the boundaries of the Kanto Region, just north of Cerulean City, nestled in-between the mountains and the ocean, was the small city of Gainsboro; a bustling city filled with people, tall skyscrapers, and barely a Pokémon in sight as opposed to the more commonly seen every day animals such as birds, squirrels or rats. Compared to the rest of Kanto, any Pokémon that lived in Gainsboro didn’t belong to a trainer, and instead were only seen on rare occasion, such an example being when a Pidgey sometimes nestles with a flock of pigeons in the park, or a stray Rattata eating out of the trash cans now and then. In a nutshell, Gainsboro was more ordinary than any of the other cities of the Kanto Region… almost as if it belonged to another world all together*
*Among the many places in the city was Gainsboro High School, a place most of its students actually considered to be a living hell. Among these students was a young 18 year old boy named Devon McConnell.
