Every region needs someone to be its patron. In the Kanto Region it was Professor Oak, in the Sinnoh Region it was Professor Rowan. Here in the Genus Region, we meet Professor Laurel, expert on all things Pokemon and professional scatterbrain. Here, take a look for yourself...
Professor Laurel was born in the town of Orion, right in the heart of the Genus Region. To this day, her lab is still there, in Orion Town. Professor Laurel has always been a bit muddled, especially when it comes to new trainers. She has even been known to give trainers the wrong Pokemon for their starter! Apart from this, Professor Laurel is a very talented and efficient woman that takes life lightly and loves to experiment with all the new crazes and trends going around. Born from an Italian family living in the Genus Region, Professor Laurel has been living in Orion Town all her life. From the time she was four, Professor Laurel has devoted her life to Pokemon and has come to know every single species of Pokemon present in the world. That is why she was chosen to be Pokemon Professor after the previous one retired. As you journey into the Genus Region, you will grow close to this professor and come to be one of her very best friends!
