Tyvan had five days to plan out his entire future before the Pallet Town Orphanage put him on the street. Since the end of the Great War no orphanage was allowed to house children for free after their 16th birthday. Listen to yourself, you’re not a child anymore, you are about to be on your own. You have to be a man now. And so, Tyvan had less than a week to pack his things and begin planning his future.
Tyvan entered the Pallet Town Orphanage at the age of three. Over the next thirteen years he was raised knowing only one thing; be the best, or live life as an ordinary Kantonite. Tyvan refused to be just another ordinary citizen, everything inside of him told him he was destined for greatness, he just didn’t know why…
The elderly couple who ran the orphanage knew very little about Tyvan’s past and what they could tell him was almost as useful as telling him nothing at all. Nearly thirteen years ago, on the sixth of May, two government officials from Cerulean City brought Tyvan to Pallet Town to be housed with the other homeless children. Pallet Town had become a refuge for children who had lost parents in the War, but the officials had no information about Tyvan’s parents. They told the couple his name and age, three years old, and left without another word. No mention of the War.
Years went by, and Tyvan grew up along side a number of children who came to live in the ever expanding orphanage. At the age of 5 the children began their studies. This is where they were given their first dose of reality. If any of them hoped to become a Pokemon Trainer they would not only have to graduate the program with high marks, but they would have to be the best. Kanto law makers decreed that all orphans would be required to be schooled until the age of 16. At such an age, the valedictorian of the class would be given one Pokemon and ¥200 to begin their journey. All other children would continue schooling till their 18th birthday where they would then be required to join the workforce.
