It was exciting prospect, but I was too excited to be able to think straight. I had no idea where I was going; I saw other people my age who looked like new trainers, so I just assumed I was in the right town. I had no idea where the Professor's lab might be, however.
I started to wander aimlessly through the town, hoping to find some sort of sign that lead me in the right direction. As I did, numerous thoughts were filling my mind, and were making me anxious. What if the Professor didn't have the right Pokemon for me? What if my new friend didn't like me? What if I somehow messed up, and ended up journey prematurely? These kinds of thoughts were tempting me to turn around and head home now; I didn't want to bear the disappointment. But I had come this far, and a big part of me was still really excited to meet my new friend, who would hopefully be my friend for a long time to come.
I was interrupted from my thoughts and mindless wandering by a young woman, who looked concerned. "You look lost there man, are you alright?" I nodded, and promptly asked her where I could find the Professor's lab. She smiled and pointed me to a larger laboratory in the middle of town. I couldn't believe I didn't notice the building earlier. I thanked her and she smiled again before leaving me be. That was weird for me; I wasn't accustomed to such friendliness, but it filled me with hope. If I was lucky, my new friend would be a lifelong one, and I would meet many more friendly people in my adventures.
I approached the building and pushed open the door, gently peeking my head inside. There were lab assistants running around everywhere, managing many different experiments or chasing after a small Rattata or Patrat which was running around the lab freely. A woman smiled at me from a larger desk as I made my way through the lab, so I asked her the obvious question, "Hi, are you Professor Cedar? I wanted to talk to you about hopefully meeting a new friend..."
She just smiled in understanding, and handed me a form. She had probably done this plenty of times by now, but this was new and exciting for me. I looked at the form and saw many different boxes and categories which the Professor needed to fill out, but saw only two lines that I needed to add to. So I did;
Name: Brayden Zidale
I handed the form back to her, mumbling, "S-s-s-so yea, if you have a Buneary, th-th-that would be awesome, please." I hoped she didn't ask me about my unusual surname, it was almost embarrassing, and so many people either got it wrong, or made fun of me for it.
Professor Cedar smiled and looked over the form. "Brayden, is it? I think I have just the partner for you!" She jumped up from the desk, surprising you with her unexpected energy.
She slotted the registration form into a large computer monitor. After a few seconds, the silhouette of a Buneary lit up the screen, along with the Pokemon's statistics. The Professor checked over them hurriedly, as if she had done this a hundred times before. After a moment, the screen went blank and a Pokeball dropped from a slot by the side of the screen. Professor Cedar grabbed it and walked back over to the desk.
"Sorry about the wait!" she said as he rummaged around on the desk, shuffling paperwork from side to side. "The paperwork is the worst part of being a Professor, if you were wondering!" She winked. "Ah, here it is!" she exclaimed, holding up a small, rectangular object that sort of looked like a Pokedex. It looks to be a new version of the Pokegear that was popular in Johto.
Professor Cedar finally handed you the Pokeball. "Your new partner is right in there! It only hatched a few days ago, so you'll be able to raise it right from the start. I thnik that's very important, this way you can make a lifelong bond. In fact, some of my early research showed... oh dear! I'm sorry!" She laughed. "You probably want to get going. Here, take these empty Pokeballs and this Pokegear as well. Good luck and take care on your journey!"
Brayden received Buneary, 5 Pokeballs, and a Pokegear 3.0! Go ahead and make your trainer record in here. You may then start your journey from Andromeda Town.
