0288 WORDS ■ @tag ■ Pokedex Quest in New Bark Town
That Ever Was
Sebastian was just about to leave the starting town of New Bark before stopping himself at the very edge of the town. A strange feeling had come over him and he felt as though he needed to head back to the lab, could it be that he had forgotten something? Or maybe there was another reason he felt so sure of himself that he needed to return to the lab immediately before heading out on his journey, otherwise he may regret it.
Turning on his heels, Sebastian started back to the lab... At least it was the first building upon entering the town otherwise this would have been even more of a pain in the neck. Poking his head in through the door of the lab, Sebastian waved down one of the aids and asked if the Professor was still around. After being pointed in the right direction, towards the back of the lab Sebastian thanked the aid and made his way back to where he had picked up Roshi. Making sure not to startle the professor too much, Sebastian made sure his foot steps were loud enough for the older gentleman to hear.
"Um Excuse me?" He said in a louder than normal voice in order to get the professors attention from a few feet away, "I just had the feeling that I needed to come back here. I do hope I'm not interrupting or anything... I just wanted to thank you for giving me Bulbasaur and I would really like to do something in return... if there is anything you would like me today whilst I'm travelling, whether it's to deliver something to someone on the opposite side of the region or whatever, I'll do it."
Professor Elm had not been expecting another visitor the rest of the day and was a bit startled when Sebastian first spoke. After a few seconds however the shock wore off and he was actually glad to see the young man. He was looking for volunteers for research he was doing with the Pokedex and as Sebastian was a new trainer he thought he would be the perfect assistant.[color-limegreen] " Oh no you are not interrupting anything at all, in fact I could actually use your help. It is not quite a delivery but you will have to travel far and wide in order to help me complete the research I have in mind.[/color] He said as he reached into a drawer and took up a Pokedex and laid it on the table next to Sebastian. He then powered on the device so the young trainer could see it in action.
" This right here is a Pokedex and my research requires trainers to complete it so we can learn everything about all the known species of Pokemon. As an example lets add the Bulbasaur your received as a starter so you can see it in action as well as the Scatterbug you acquired in your journey so far." After pressing a few buttons the Pokedex registered the two Pokemon and Professor Elm handed Sebastian the device. Now that the short demo was over he explained the rest of the research and the benefits of helping him. " I will need you to capture most of the Pokemon yourself but my research does allow for some sharing so if you have any friends who are willing to share their data with you the Pokedex can do so but be warned, once you share enough that feature will become disabled. I will of course reward you as you reach certain milestones starting at 25 Pokemon caught or seen of potentially both."
Having finished his explination he smiled as he sat down in a chair for a moment to catch his breath before ending his lecture. " I wish you the best of luck on your quest and please do come back to see me whenever you make any progress so I can keep an updated tab on your progress."
