I'm truly pleased to find myself back in Onett. Reacquainted with characters like Buzz Buzz, my dog and Franky from the back of the arcade, I found the dialog to be delightfully humorous. Whether it's my dog's color commentary or the random talking Sharks, I found myself laughing every three or four minutes from a subtle punchline to a hilarious, fourth-wall busting moment. It still feels great to get that Mr. Baseball Cap upgrade and buy my first bat - even if it's just a Tee-ball bat. The Spiteful crows reminded me again, why I hated them so much - he stole my Bread Roll. What a jerk! It's the highest level healing item at the beginning of the game, and, in my first battle, he stole it. Unbelievable. Regardless, I grind my way past Sharks, get flattened by Franky, grind some more, obliterate Franky, happily eat a hamburger and quickly take down the Giant Ant at the Giant Step for the first Sanctuary location.
