(( no you're fine! That's perfect, you know exactly how to do this! You choose the gender, you can specify in the next entry. I'm assuming male though. ))
Dr. Neihof nodded approvingly as Wren carefully selected the poochyena from the three choices. He already knew of the student's love for dark type pokemon, and was pleased that the board's selection had provided her with those choices. He also handed her a bag with some supplies in it for her journey that she would be able to open later.
Kuro was not the most calm pokemon, however, and wriggled and struggled in Wren's arms as she returned to her seat to watch the rest of the selection process. A boy behind her named Luke nodded knowingly as he watched her struggle. He had dealt with the same thing just a few minutes ago, as he had chosen a magikarp. It just wouldn't stop splashing and finally he had just had to return it into its pokeball.
Finally, the ceremony was over, and the students were given permission to leave. Nearly all of the students bolted out of the room into the courtyard to test out their pokemon, leaving Wren in the room with just a few people.
There was Cali and her honedge, Spence and his aron, Harris and his wurmple, Luke and his magikarp, and lastly Qierra, who had gone last and hadn't even had a chance to sit down. Her last name was Zian. She had chosen an eevee.
Wren has the chance to go and talk to these students and decide her opinions of them, or she could choose one blindly to accompany outside. Or, she could go out alone, looking for different trainers to befriend. All of her choices now will effect the future. But the trainers in the room and the trainers outside are who she will travel with. She can bring with her a maximum of 4 other trainers plus herself, though usually trainers travel in groups totaling four, not five. But the decision is yours.
You can talk to them, and if you choose to do so I will provide their dialogue. But a brief deion of their personalities is:
Cali is bubbly and sweet, a great friend but not always the brightest. She loves ghost pokemon and will be collecting them. She chose the collector career.
Spence is quiet and shy, but very nice once you know him. He is a trainer.
Harris is the gym leader Viola's son. He wants to collect bug pokemon and become a gym leader. He's loud and brash, but really is insecure and never feels like he will live up to his mom.
Luke wants to be a scientist, and wants to evolve his magikarp into a gyarados as soon as possible so he can explore the oceans. He likes water types.
Qierra wants to be a pokemon breeder, obviously choosing eevee for the breeding potential and variety of evolutions. She is very smart and sweet, sometimes coming off as bossy even though she doesn't mean it.
