    Feel free to use this guide
    
    Alright since there's no english version yet, many will be guessing around 
    what all those
    japanese words means. So if you just got the game and don't know the 
    meaning, refer
    to the guide.
    If you are those type that don't like the fact to spoil the game,
    you will need this, too. There are still something that i don't understand. 
    If anyone found any error
    please tell me so that no one would be mistaken.
    
    
    Firstly when you start the game,
    The first question is to ask you the time, in hour
    the second question is to ask you the time, in minute
    then after the intro, when you go down from your room, your mom will ask you 
    the day,
    from monday till sunday.
    
    After you save your game for the first time, the main screen will have three 
    options
    Load
    Start new game
    Options
    
    you will get another option after you get the radio
    sometimes, i don't know how this happen but after i choose to load, it 
    happens that it let me
    change the day, hours, minute.
    I'm not sure how this happen
    
    Now the menu after you get everything

    For third one onwards, you get it after you defeat other trainers
    You will allow them to call you if you talk to them after the battle and 
    choose yes
    * this apply to some of the trainers only, probably one trainer in an area 
    only
    When you allow them to call you, they will call you to tell you something or 
    challenge you to a
    battle again.
    To know the difference between a message and a challenge,
    just look at the text carefully. You will find that they will mention a 
    place's name if they want to
    challenge you.
    (Probably Road 33, Road 43 and so, which you can recognize the number)
    Go back to that trainer at that place and you can fight him again and get 
    more cash.
