For the Protection of Johto
Welcome to the Johto Region! It's a great place for trainers. If you need any help, you can ask Prof. Elm. If Prof. Elm is out of contact, you can tune your PokéGear to Prof. Oak's Radio Show. Oh, I know what you're thinking...what does any of this have to do with you? Well, things aren't as tranquil behind the scenes:
A company known as "Technology Revolutionized" has started a logging venture in the Ilex Forest. Time "glitches" have become more frequent in the surrounding area. In Goldenrod City, exotic Pokémon are being shipped to the Game Corner, but strangely, none have appeared as prizes. In the north, a factory has sprung up at the Lake of Rage, built by the same company. This has caused Grimer to run amuck around the lake. Pokémon native to the area are being pushed down into Mahogany Town, wreaking havoc on its citizens. At the same time, the Ice Path is melting at an alarming rate. Nobody knows the cause, but scientists from all over the globe have flown in to analyze the problem. Blackthorn City has become isolated, because the police have closed the Ice Path, fearing the worst. In the West, things are looking just as bleak. Whirlpools and waterspouts are appearing with severe weather in greater numbers. Boat travel to Cianwood City has become all but impossible as captains have become fearful of the storms.But what does any of this have to do with you?
You are from another [part of the] region. You've been helping the Prof. of that region and are on good terms with them. He/She lets you play with the Pokémon, and even though you don't have a Pokémon of your own, you understand the mechanics of battling and competing in contests. Anyway, one day, your Prof. hands you a letter. It's addressed to you, from Prof. Oak. It reads:
Dear [Your Name], Congratulations! You've been deemed applicable for the PokéBoard by our staff. Prof. [Your Region's Prof.] has recommended you for having extensive knowledge in the field of Pokémon treatment and care, and for having the dedication and determination necessary for being a Pokémon Trainer/Coordinator. Enclosed is a ticket for a [boat/train/plane/etc.] to Olivine [Marina/Station/Airport/etc.]. We expect to see you within the next week, or your spot on the PokéBoard will be revoked. Once again, congratulations and have a safe trip! Sincerely,
It's three strikes, then you're out!

Name: Kawaii, Inc.
Name: Cliff Fairfax
General Personality: Cliff has a very up-beat personality. While this might annoy some people, in most cases, he can raise the mood of any situation fairly easily. Cliff has never been the serious type, either. It's not that he can't be serious; it's just that he finds it easier to handle life in a fun, happy way. Now, this is not to say Cliff can't get angry. Don't underestimate his temper, because if you set him off, you'll find that he can be a very challenging opponent. Needless to say, tenacious is an understatement when it comes to Cliff.
Likes: Cool Breezes, Up-Beat Music, Pokémon, Traveling
Cliff awoke to the sun gleaming through his window. When reality finally hit him, he sprung from bed with a fright and yelled, "I'm late!" He dressed quickly, then sprinted out the door. He realized his mother had yelled something to him, but couldn't make out the words over the rustle of his father's newspaper. "Sorry, Mom! Can't talk; late for work!"
Cliff was less frantic once the lab came into view. He saw the Prof. clumsily entering carrying a cup of coffee and a stack of upwards of fifty papers. "Prof. Elm!" he yelled, "Waiittt!" Unfortunately, Elm was caught off guard by the ruckus and spilt his coffee down his hand. "Ahhh, hot! Too hot!" he yelled, dropping his papers. Cliff rolled his eyes at the Prof. then gave a big, synthetic smile as he helped relocate the fallen papers. "Here--let me help you, Prof." he said as he bent down towards an envelope. While it wasn't his usual behavior to snoop, his eyes couldn't help but wonder as he read the name on the letter. His name was written in the center, along with Prof. Elm's lab as the address. "What's this?" Sebastian asked curiously. The edges of Prof. Elm's lips started to lift from ear-to-ear.
"I dunno," the Prof. said cheesily. He continued, "Maybe you should open it to find out..." He read it out loud:
Dear Master Fairfax, Congratulations! You've been deemed applicable for the PokéBoard by our staff. Prof. Elm has recommended you for having extensive knowledge in the field of Pokémon treatment and care, and for having the dedication and determination necessary for being a Pokémon Trainer/Coordinator. Enclosed is a ticket for a boat to Olivine Marina. We expect to see you within the next week, or your spot on the PokéBoard will be revoked. Once again, congratulations and have a safe trip! Sincerely,Cliff threw the other papers as he flung himself into the air. He read it over again, just to make sure he wasn't dreaming. "This is just awesome! This is great! Can you believe this? It's just amazing!" he ranted. In an instant, Prof. Elm jumped to Cliff's side and joined in the jubilant occasion.
"So...are you gonna join?!" Elm asked, as if he didn't already know the answer!
"Well, let me think...OF COURSE!" Cliff screamed. He reached into the envelope and pulled out the boat ticket. "Oh, great! They sent tickets for the New Bark Marina!"
Prof. Elm stood proudly. "And for this special occasion, I'm letting you off work! Aren't you so lucky?" the Prof. said sarcastically.
"Can I use your phone to call my parents?" Cliff asked. He already knew the answer they'd give him. They were more then pleased when his sister left on her journey; they'd be grateful for him to have the chance to follow in her footsteps. Not only that, but the letter made it seem like he'd be given the opportunity to participate in some one-of-a-kind organization. "Uh-hu...yeah. I know! Can you believe it!? I'm in shock too! Okay, okay...I already knew that. Yeah, I'll send for my things later. It sounds like they already have everything ready for me. I love you to, ma. Love ya; bye!" He hung up the phone.
"Well, I'm off! Wish me luck!" Cliff called to the Prof. as he burst out the door. Prof. Elm waved him goodbye, then, off he went as he started on the journey of a lifetime...
