Whoaaa… You are one hardworking kid! I know ‘cause I hated to study anything! I really admire you, you know? Say… Professor Birch and the Petalburg Gym Leader Norman, that new guy Norman, went to college together. If you could find a place like the one they went to, you could study both battling and Pokémon research! But it’s crazy to ask me about something big like this! Talk to your guidance counselor! Good luck with your applications, and I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you!
