Life During the Rocket Takeover Edit
Samuel's Pokémon were taken from him when he visited his hometown of Cerulean City. Samuel discovered that he still had two Pokémon in his PC box, a Staryu and a Spheal. He boards a ship to Sinnoh so he can go on an adventure with Will.
Upon arriving, he is challenged by several Rocket grunts, but manages to win when a Team Liberty member, Zack Furler, helps fight off the Rockets. Samuel and Zack set off to pick up Will before looking for the people present at Zack's uncle Cyrus's disappearance: Lucas and Dawn.
