Hello there! Welcome to the world of Pokémon! My name is Professor Oak, many people think of me THE Pokémon Professor but I‘m an just an old man who knows a lot about Pokémon.
This world is inhabited by many creatures called Pokémon from the lowly Caterpie to the mighty Dragonite, for some people Pokémon are pets while others use them for fighting, there even some that enter them in special contests! Myself... Well I study Pokémon as a profession; alas I‘m not as youthful as I used to be, still you strapping young folk still have your vim and vigour left in you.
I have for each of you a Pokémon so that you can begin your journey; normally I wouldn’t just hand over these Pokémon willy-nilly but you agreed to help me, so it’s the least I could do. You all should have installed the Pokédex app onto your smart-phones, it will let you access a database with all sorts of information on Pokémon as well as collect data like more precise height measurements or a better idea of it‘s preferred habitat, that is why I called you here, there are still unknowns, there are many Pokémon not even in the database! If you could find and capture as many Pokémon as you can, you will help us learn alot about the world we live in.
Oh, and before I forget, meet Tootie O’Reyal, she will be travelling with you, if that is okay.
She needs some field experience, and I thought she could go with you, she is actually very knowledgeable having read many books and whatnot but she is very shy and is easily scared, almost cripplingly so, as such she has very little practical experience. If you could, please escort her to some places outside of this small town, hopefully she will feel more secure going with you, who knows she might become a learn a lot as well as becoming more comfortable around Pokémon and other people.
But enough of my rambling, introduce yourselves, you will be spending a lot of time with one another so it is best if you at least are aquatinted with one another.
