Welcome to the first edition of Fandom Fridays. Today, we’ll be taking a look at different things you can do within the Pokemon World for occupations. Please note that some of these occupations aren’t going to happen in the game very easily (if at all), but the fun can still be had through roleplays or other means of pretend.
This is the most basic occupation out there. At the age of ten years old, children are allowed to obtain their Trainer’s Licenses and begin training their own Pokemon. Pokemon Trainers seek to capture and help their Pokemon grow stronger through battle and other means of Training. These individuals value strength and determination. Being a Pokemon Trainer often opens up paths to many other occupations as time marches on.
Pokemon breeders are those individuals who look to produce and raise the Pokemon with the absolute best potential. They work to create Pokemon with beautiful coats, intense power, and even special moves. Pokemon breeders have an understanding of Pokemon that goes much deeper than that of an average trainer. They don’t focus on a few Pokemon to make stronger, but instead desire a deep knowledge of Pokemon, sometimes a select few and sometimes as many as possible. Breeders understand the quirks of Pokemon better than anyone else.
Pokemon Coordinators focus on Pokemon contests. Like Trainers, they work with a selected team of Pokemon and also want their Pokemon to be strong, but instead of focusing on conquering as many opponents as they can through their strength, Coordinators want their Pokemon to look especially good while battling. A Pokemon contest becomes almost like a magnificent dance, and good Coordinators work seamlessly with their Pokemon in a very pleasing-to-watch manner.
Pokemon Rangers are a select group of individuals who work tirelessly to protect Pokemon in the wild from Poachers or others that would wrongly do them harm. Pokemon Rangers have a single Pokemon partner and the ability to befriend nearly any Pokemon in the wild with proper training. However, after asking for the aid of wild Pokemon, Rangers will always allow those Pokemon to return to their naturally wild state.
Pokemon Trainers who have proven their worth in a Pokemon League may have the opportunity to become a Gym Leader. These individuals have a very narrow and focused view on Pokemon training, which they exemplify through their training techniques and battle style. Gyms often have a specific theme, be it a specific type or some other common trend. Gym Leaders are extremely talented and strong, and are often very wise as well.
Pokemon Professors are extremely intelligent individuals who spend their entire working lives dedicated to discovering new and exciting things about Pokemon. They want to further the world’s bank of knowledge on these strange and exciting creatures. This may be accomplished through study of myth and legend, or through the tiniest differences in Pokemon of different regions. Pokemon Professors are extremely dedicated and often are the ones who aid new Trainers as they begin their own journeys.
Pokemon Nutritionists focus on creating supplements and foods for Pokemon to provide them with the best nutrition possible. They create supplements like Proteins and Carbos for Pokemon, as well as other sorts of nutritional foods. Some Pokemon Nutritionists work solely on making Poffins or Pokeblocks, while others focus on creating unique recipes of food for each species of Pokemon. (You wouldn’t want to feed your Butterfree the same food as your Cranidos, after all.)
Pokemon Botanists focus on growing organic herbs for use in Pokemon foods and medicines. Botanists work tirelessly to grow the absolute best plants for their Pokemon. The most important thing a Pokemon Botanist grows is often Berries. Berries are prized by Nutritionists for Pokeblocks and Poffins. Berries also have amazing properties to help heal Pokemon in a variety of different situations. Pokemon Botanists are often slightly reclusive in nature, considering the great lengths to which they must go for the perfect growing conditions for certain berries and herbs.
Pokemon Police Officer
In the Pokemon world, there are those that would do harm to Pokemon and people alike. Because of that, there needs to be a group of people dedicated to holding up the letter of the law. Pokemon Police Officers work alone or in teams, always with a Pokemon partner. These Police Officers work to keep vandals and other evildoers at bay. Without these very important individuals, the Pokemon world would fall into horrible darkness.
Pokemon Medics range from Nurses to Surgeons. These individuals have spend years training to learn how to heal Pokemon with any host of injuries. Every Nurse you find in a Pokemon center falls under this category. These people are vital to Pokemon trainers and their Pokemon. Pokemon Medics work hard to help keep Pokemon safe and healthy.
