Prior to entering the Johto Region, Tristan had been informed that he would need to visit Professor Elm in New Bark Town and so he did just that as he made his way towards the town located in the southeastern section of the Johto Region. It had been a dull and uneventful trip to the small town however Tristan arrived safe and sound.
Tristan's first stop after arriving in New Bark Town was to locate the small town's laboratory where Professor Elm worked. Tristan was unaware of who exactly Professor Elm was or what he looked like, after living in Pacifidlog Town in the Hoenn Region for the entirety of his young life the teenager.
Tristan arrived at the front doors of the laboratory and gave a definitive knock to ensure his presence was known, a voice from within gave the teenager permission to enter the building and Tristan did just that. As Tristan entered the building he scanned to find where the voice had come from,
"Professor Elm, I'm Tristan from Pacifidlog Town in the Hoenn Region, I've come to start off my own journey in the Johto Region."
As Tristan walked through the door Professor Elm was standing a short distance away with a pile of papers in his hands. He had just gotten finished analyzing the latest test he had run regarding eggs of Pokemon found nearby and did not expect Tristan to reach his lab so quickly. " Please do pardon the mess younger trainer and welcome to my lad. I am Professor Elm and you have arrived just in time." As he placed the massive stack of papers on a nearby table a small gust of wind caused them to blow all over the place leaving quite a mess for him to clean up. Before he could worry about that however the job Tristan was more important for the time being.
" Oh goodness what a mess, I can get it cleaned up in a moment but first could you follow me? I have a very special task for you to help me with my research." As he walked over to another table a red computer like device was sitting there by itself as the Professor pointed to it and then picked it up. " This here is a Pokedex and it is able to record the data on every known species of Pokemon. My research needs someone to find every known species and then show me the results and you look like the perfect candidate." As he powered on the device he started to program it with the Pokemon Tristan already had to get the young trainer started on the task.
" Right now this Pokedex has been updated to include the Pokemon you currently have, as you hit certain milestones I will have extra rewards for you but for now you are at least two steps closer to your goal. Of course you could always say no but I could really use your help if you are willing." As he held out the device he hoped Tristan would take the Pokedex and not make him look like a total fool for programming the Pokedex before even making sure Tristan would help him on his research.

"Perfect! Your Dex has been properly updated with all of your pokémon data. Now, just one last thing before you head off. I have a few trainers that have volunteered. And so to make sure I don't have too many repeat entries I'd prefer if you went out and captured as many as you could on your own instead of just sharing a pokémon's with someone."
"Some sharing is expected of course, as it is interesting data to see how pokémon get around and relations between different trainers. But it's not my focus right now so I'll be keeping track here."
