"Welcome, Taither! Since you are now an official ranger, are you ready for your first assignment?"
Were the words that James Carter, one of the Elite Rangers and also the one who administered my test, asked me only a day after my license was issued. Eager to get to work, I accepted before he could even tell me where I was going. Not that it mattered, I took the liberty to study all the maps of the National Park I could get my hands on. I felt confident that no matter which area I was sent to, I could bring a trainer through and return safely. Hopefully.
"You'll be taking a trainer named Sorm through the Meteor Valley. You're to meet him tomorrow morning at Outpost #8. Good luck, young Padawan."
I never could understand James' outlandish nicknames, so I learned quickly to shrug them off as early schizophrenia. With the file associated with my assignment in hand, I finished up some last minute packing for the trip; extra Pokedolls, some rope, a flashlight, a flare gun, and a first aid kit. Anything else, my partner Pokemon could handle without the need of tools. Once that was finished, I looked over the assignment until I fell asleep.
The trainer was supposed to meet me the next morning, which I actually showed up early for. The trainer wasn't there yet, so I kept myself busy in the outpost, going over the map of the area once more. By the time I skimmed over the map, making mental notes of specific areas that might be interesting to explore, the trainer came into sight coming up the path. Grabbing my pack sitting on the desk, I exit the outpost and walk down the path to meet the trainer Sorm.
"Hello! Welcome to the National Park!"
I called out to the trainer as he came into better focus, waving my arm in the air to grab his attention. A smile crept across my face as I psyched myself up for the trip through the Meteor Valley zone, which I knew would be an exciting experience for this novice trainer.
