@DayTripper122 (hope u don't mind the tag) suggested i draw up the professor next and here she is!
instead of creating new characters for this region, i’m just treating it as an AU for already existing OCs of mine - and jay makes the perfect pokemon professor! tho being an already existing character is the reason why her last name isn't the name of a tree or w/e like the other professors
while techincally her partner in the actual pokemon AU is a honchkrow bc she’s associated w/ crows, cawshee fits well as a replacement despite being a magpie
also, the pokemon style is weirdly hard to draw humans in? maybe bc i'm used to putting a heap of detail in my art so minimising it is a task lol
