If you were in the pokemon world just living your normal life. Nothing special. Except there are pokemon everywhere. Unlike red or blue you gotta eat, sleep, and buy things. Let's be honest. You can't spend your whole life being a pokemon trainer, or maybe you can. I've met a lot of millionaire ten year old pokemon trainers in my travels. However I doubt it would be that simple right? If you had to pick a career what would you be? Would you be a ranger? A nurse? Police officer? Farmer? A waiter/waitress? A professional pokemon photographer? Would you have one career or multiple? The list of possibilities is a very long list! I would want to be a gym leader or better an elite four member. Also a martial arts instructor on the side. Being a gym leader would be cool cause... you have your own gym and the terrain is determined based entirely on your pokemon types to suit your style. That and usually the local community will look to the gym leaders for help when something bad happens. Plus having my own gym would be really useful for being a martial arts instructor. Kinda like Lt. Surge from gen. 1 or brawly from gen. 3 or maylene from gen. 4. When I'm not battling challengers in in the gym or helping the local community I'm in the dojo training people, helping them train their pokemon, or both. (If your going to train your pokemon there is no reason not to physically train yourself). No amount of training is going to help you learn flamethrower or how to fly but that's besides the point. I really like the alola trials. They were more than simply find a gym leader, beat them, and repeat this 8 times. The trials were simple granted. But the concept is nice. If I was a gym leader I would like to implement this in some way shape or form. Maybe a sparing match with me or one of my students and if they don't want to do that they could participate in an obstacle course.
