"I'd be happy to travel with you." Jake answered, happy to know that he wouldn't be alone on his journey. "However, I've got something to take care of."
He walked up to the door of the lab and, deciding to be polite, knocked before entering. "Hello? Professor Oak?" Jake found the professor scanning the beginning pages of a research book. Looking up, he gave a welcoming smile. "Ah, you must be Jake! You're here to get your Pokedex, correct?"
"Yep!" he replied. "Dylan and I are psyched!"
"Oh, an Oshawott." Oak observed. "Not common here in Kanto."
"My sister gave it to me as a gift. She used to travel in Unova."
Oak nodded and led Jake over to a table. Handing him a Pokedex, he asked, "Would you like me to register you for the Pokemon League?"
"Yes, please!" Jake said, eagerly, moments before receiving a trainer card and badge case. "Well, guess I'll be off! Ready, Dylan?" The Oshawott chirped, anxiously. "Watch out, world, here I come!" he cried, dashing out of the lab.
