~ Barry before the Pokemon League


Barry is the childhood friend of Lucas and the rival in Sinnoh. Always in a hurry, Barry is the reason that Lucas and him get Pokémon, as Barry convinces his friend to go search for the Red Gyarados, and in the process, they run into Professor Rowan, his starter Pokémon, and some wild Starlys. The duo's adventure begins when they use Rowan's Pokémon to defend themselves.
