Amaryllis herself took the Pokedex from the good Professor Elm with a smile. "Thank you, Professor. I'll be sure to help you in your quest to obtain data on every species of Pokémon there is." While she knew every Pokemon that inhabited her home region, there were many more Pokemon that she never knew of, perhaps hundreds of species that went undiscovered in a bygone era. "Torchic! Chic!" Karna chirped happily as she showed him one page of a Pidgey and its evolutions. The orange chick Pokemon was surely full of energy, perhaps she may have to look up on other species outside of her home.
"I've memorized every kind of Pokémon from Hoenn myself through traveling around to different towns and cities, but I'd like to learn more about the other Pokemon from other regions." And what better way to learn about them than getting a Pokedex and recording data automatically into a neat little page? Other aspiring Pokemon Trainers back home were a good help in figuring out what Pokemon was it, but she thought it would be fun to see the many strange and new Pokemon not native in Hoenn.
"Great!" the professor joined in with the cheers from Karna. While she got the hang of the device, showing a page or two to the chick accompanying her, Elm took the time to fix up his askew glasses and find a print out of his reward scheme. As he pulled the page from one of his many pockets it came a little wrinkled. He took a second to unfold the piece and straight it out against his chest, just in time for Amaryllis to excitedly talk of her home region.
Elm nodded along, lips skewed not unlike the those cat emoticons. "Well this will be perfect for you then. No doubt you'll see some amazing new species throughout the various areas in Johto. We're pretty lucky here to host such a variety thanks to our proximity with the other regions," he explained, soon offering the print out to the young girl. "And of course I'll have some other things to help you out along the way."
He gave her a moment to glance over the sheet before explaining the two sides of the chart. "As long as you remember to feed your new information back to me from time to time, I'll make sure to mail you some rewards for all your hard work!" he chuckled lightly. "Obviously I can gather more data from actual pokémon you catch than just ones you see, so I have split the reward scheme based on that."
"For now, though, we can start with what you have right now."
"But of course you don't have to find all of them on your own. Some of the rarer ones you might only get through fellow trainers and that interaction is just as valuable. But of course I don't want too many of those, so I've set a limit for how many duplicate entries I'd accept."
