Okay! The adventure begins once more! After picking your gender, complexion and name, you’ll begin in your bedroom with grand music playing. Feel free to walk around the room and interact with things by using the A button .
When you’re ready; step in front of the mirror and interact with it to change into your clothes. You can hold the B button to run now. Make your way downstairs and you’ll be greeted by your mum. Turns out you’ve only just moved into the town, just like in Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald. Cool! Head on outside.
You’ll be greeted by a couple of people who’ll introduce themselves as Serena (if you’re playing as the guy) or Calem (if you’re playing as the girl) and Shauna. They’ll say to meet the Pokémon professor in the next town to get your first Pokémon!
They’ll head out the town gates. Well, may as well follow. Feel free to explore the town first, but there’s nothing of real note to do here. Once you’re ready, exit Vaniville via the north!
Tip #001: How To Save
You can save your game progress at any time by pressing the X button outside of battle and going to "Save" or by pressing the notepad icon along the bottom of the Touch Screen. It’s always wise to save often, especially before a tough trainer battle or rare Pokémon encounter!
