All he had to do was point a pokedex at the pokemon he saw or capture pokemon? Basically all the man wanted him to do was what Mikasi had already been planning to do. Mikasi rummaged in his mind, trying to find any reason to not do it but the whole thing sounded too good. If there was a trick he couldn't find it. "Sure thing sir." Mikasi offered him a grin aiming for a friendly look, as little as he bothered to show it these days. "I'd be happy to help." Especially if he was getting rewards for it.
Mikasi was at his cleanest at the moment. He had put on his dark blue blazer and wore his tie, making sure it was relatively wrinkle free. No wrinkles was a hard task he was still working on. Hopefully it was doing its job and making him appear more mature so this scientist would have plenty of faith and trust in him. "I'll get you more information than you'll know what to do with." Mikasi skimmed his eyes over the pokedex, tapping a button on it thoughtfully, watching the screen brighten up, "Seems pretty simple."
Mikasi stood attentively listening to the lab assistant's instruction based spiel about the magnificent pocket device that acted as a pokemon encyclopedia of sorts, it pleased the lab assistant when he heard that the young boy was willing to assist him with the task that had been set out to him. As the lab assistant handed over the bright red pokedex to Mikasi, with it came a folded up piece of paper which denoted all of the available milestones that Mikasi could claim as part of the professor's reward scheme, an additional section of the note also detailed the sharing of pokemon entries. Utilising a pokedex while traversing the Johto region would be an easy task that benefited both parties, Mikasi would be able to learn about all different sorts of pokemon out and about while the lab assistant could sit high and mighty in the comfort of his laboratory assisting the professor with his research upon the pokemon that the trainer would document over time, foolproof stuff really.
As Mikasi begun to leave the laboratory the lab assistant wished the boy safe travels and had indicated that he was looking forward to regular updates as he gave the young boy a wave goodbye.
