Professor Aspen’s Research Quests: Crustle

Greetings trainer! My name is Professor “Quaking” Aspen. ‘Aspen’ is my family name while ‘Quaking’ is just a nickname given to me because of my muscular physique… and because I have had tremors since I was a boy. “Why do all professors in this world have tree names” you ask? I have no idea what you are talking about…

Anyways, welcome to the vast and phenomenal world of Pokemon! Pokemon are incredibly powerful creatures, each with their own story to tell and each one eager to make your acquaintance. But you don’t need me to tell you that, you are a Pokemon trainer are you not? As a trainer, you are probably anxious to set out on your own and catch Pokemon companions. Well before you go out on your own and potentially do something illegal, your mother told me to put you to work in my science research lab to help you earn money. She is worried you won’t be able to pay for a hotel and will be forced to sleep in the wild which might lead you to getting eaten by an Ursaring. No worries, I have plenty of work for you to do in my Crustle Research Lab! Crustle has been teaching us a lot about Geology, Biology, and Ecology. Let me give you the tour of the lab and put you to work right away!

Thank you for joining us! Professor Aspen’s Research Quests are an extension of the Natural History Museum of Video Game Characters. Please come back to our Natural History Museum of Video Game Characters (NHMVG for short). We are hard at work building more exhibits that you can enjoy. As always, please leave us a review so we know how we are doing and if you found your stay at our museum educational and enjoyable. See you soon!
