I'm not talking about being a trainer or gym leader. Because everyone would say that. The truth is, 99% of the population would need a normal job. Not everyone can meander! You could still use pokemon, of course.
I'd be a physicist. A freakin' cool one, at that, because I'd have my haunter at my side helping me understand all the meta-physical quirks of ghost pokemon. We'd eventually invent and patent the bottomless soda cup. End of story.
What about you?
