Clayton entered the lab and saw a man whom he assumed was the professor finish up giving a girl her Pokedex.
"Excuse me, but are you Professor Oak?" he inquired.
"Yes I am, young man." replied the Professor, "Are you also here for a Pokedex?'
Before Clayton could answer he realized Trubber had wandered over to the Professor and was cheerfully smiling up at him.
"Oh my a Trubbish, so you must be from the Unova region then?" Trubber now had the Professor's shins locked in a tight hug
"Yes we are." he said with a nervous chuckle. "You'll have to excuse him, he can get a little over excited around new people." He pried the small creature away from the professor and deposited him on the backpack behind his shoulders where it then turned around to poke it's eyes up above Clayton's head.
"It's no trouble at all, we have a Muk here that can be very affectionate as well." The professor turned around and produced a Pokedex, some pokeballs, and a badge case from the open drawer behind him. "Here you are. That pokedex will help you identify and catalog the pokemon you come across on your travels. It will also help you keep track of your team's abilities as they grow and become stronger."
"Cool, thanks Professor." responded Clayton. He pointed the Pokedex over his shoulder at Trubber and watched the image of a Trubbish appear on the screen as it dictated a brief summary.
Trubbish, the Trash Bag Pokémon. Trubbish prefer to live in dirty places like garbage dumps. It is said they were born when a chemical reaction occurred between an abandoned trash bag and industrial waste.

As the device finished, Clayton noticed that two more trainers had joined them inside the lab. Wow, lots of people starting their journeys today.
