You’re an adult with a job. Your job doesn’t directly revolve around Pokémon (like a Breeder or Gym Leader) but it is a vital element. You could be a doctor with a partner Chansey, a police officer with a partner Growlithe, or maybe a firefighter with a partner Squirtle. You may not be on the ultimate Pokémon Adventure like those young’uns, but when Pokémon are involved, there’s never a dull moment.
