Person Event Number and Person ID can both be found in A-Map, when you click on the event.
If this is for your first Pokémon it's a good idea to use the flag 0x828 - that way you also activate the Pokémon menu as well and kill two birds with one stone!

In scripting you use the commands: setflag 0xFLAG, clearflag 0xFLAG and checkflag 0xFLAG (where flag is a unique number, normally 400-1000).
Some flags have special properties when set, and activate menus, badges, etc.

For simplicity imagine that 'setflag' changes the value from 0 -> 1. 'clearflag' changes the value from 1 -> 0.
Here is a script to demonstrate flag use in changing what happens:
The line under 'checkflag 0x500' is important, it means that when 0x500 is set (value = 1) then the script shoulg to to @FlagIsSet rather than carry on. This script should therefore alternate between the two messages every time you talk to the person event.
I hope that made flags clearer!

Person ID: 800

How much do you know about scripting so far? I can link you to some tutorials to get you started or help you with specific things if you've tried them and gotten stuck
