Ever since the first Pokémon game was released, players have been entrusted with the knowledge of Pokémon Professors as they set out on grand adventures. Respected instructors are never without their trusty sidekicks, the Aides. In “Pokémon: Professor Oak’s Back-Up,” players take on the role of Aidan, an up-and-coming scientist who, instead of becoming a Trainer, has chosen to devote their life to Pokémon research.
PROFESSOR OAK HAS MADE A SPECIAL REQUEST
Aidan works tirelessly on their study in the Pallet Town labs of Professor Oak. Professor Oak comes to Aidan one day with an unusual request. The extended absence of one of Oak’s trusted Aides, Adrienne, on a mission causes cause for anxiety. Adrienne’s laid-back personality often gets her into unusual predicaments, so Professor Oak gives Aidan a one-of-a-kind mission: visit the alluring Sevii Islands, find and rescue Adrienne, and bring her back so that the crucial research may continue.
WHERE TO BEGIN YOUR SINNOH
Selecting one of three Sinnoh region Starter Pokémon is a major decision for players. This decision sets the tone for the rest of their time in the Sevii Islands and determines how their quest unfolds. Aidan can choose from various Pokémon allies, each with skills and advantages.
IT’S TIME FOR A SCIENTIFIC EXPEDITION!
With their chosen Pokémon at their side, Aidan embarks on a thrilling and unorthodox research mission to the scenic Sevii Islands. Discovering new landscapes, ecological communities, Pokémon, and exciting trials awaits you on this journey. To ensure Adrienne’s safe return, players must overcome these challenges, testing their mettle and expanding their knowledge of the Pokémon world.
