James had successfully defended his title of Indigo League Champion. He was the most skilled Pokémon trainer in the Kanto region, and as far as he knew his team was unmatched. He had traveled to every corner of Kanto and captured the birds of legend and the berserk clone of the ancient Mew. After finishing all of this there was only one thing that James wanted to do... play some video games. So he went home and turned on his NES so he could play and relax after a long journey. His mom didn't even mind. In her mind he had earned a nice break.
