Grey Welles walked triumphantly up to the sliding doors of the Pokemon Center, his hands in his pockets, the amber glow of the setting sun reflecting perfectly off of his silver watch. Grace, a petite but rambunctious Mienfoo stood confidently at his side, secretly excited, but making sure she only showed her determination rather than her anxiousness. The doors obediently spread open and Grey took a step inside, beaming slyly, his piercing yellow eyes roaming around the room, sizing up what little competition there was left.
"Fear not, everyone!" he implored loudly, making his way to the front desk. "Mr. Welles has arrived..."
Grace shoved her fist into the air and peeped eagerly. "Foo!!"
Grey wasted no time in registering, though he made sure to let the nurse know how gorgeous he thought she was, which made the Mienfoo cringe and roll her eyes. Satisfied, Grey tucked his new badge case into the pocket of his sleek blazer and slid his trainer card back into his expensive, black leather wallet.
"Well, Grace," he said, looking at his partner and grinning widely. "Looks like we're official. So what do you say. Are you ready for this?"
The Mienfoo hopped up eagerly and matched her partner's wide grin with one of her own, offering him her tiny fist with another excited chirp. Grey grinned even more and knocked his fist against hers before ruffling her fur one the top of her head playfully, causing her to giggle uncharacteristically.
"Hell yeah! Watch out, Kanto... Because here we come..."
