Professor Ginkgo Chronicles



Professor Ginkgo is a young and upcoming Pokemon Professor from the Kanto region. While only recently earning his PhD in the field, the adjunct professor goes to the Unova region on a personal expedition, when suddenly a pokemon with a mysterious collar encounters him! The events that unfold compel the professor to relive his past in order to shape his future. How will Prof. Ginkgo steel his resilience while working on his next publication deadline?

Professor Ginkgo Chronicles is my first completed fan fiction novel. The rough draft was completed in May 2013. The full revised version was completed in April 2014. It is inspired by the world of Pokemon and takes references from the manga, anime, and video game series. While many of the characters are original, the characters and creatures directly related to the Pokemon franchise are not intended to be portrayed to its integrity.
