This is indeed a great idea! Maybe you could even make the starter not obey at the beginning, or the prof refusing to give you a starter, having to get it in another way.

Its realistic, but a lot of people play games to escape realism. Even The Sims, which emulates real life, is unrealistic. You can fastforward through the boring things like sleeping and going to work, you can be abducted by aliens, meet bigfoot, be anyone you want to be, etc.

I do see this maybe working well as the plot for a short story though. I could also see it being appealing if you start off as a loser but then you end up overcoming that eventually - in a way. It starts off like this, you want to be the champion and end up not being able to make it. So you give up that dream, but eventually you join Team Rocket or whatever. Nobody has (to my knowledge) made a solid Team Rocket hack, and you always seem to start as someone who is already a grunt and the like. Starting as a normal trainer and having the backstory that led to WHY they joined might make the character more interesting and in turn make the game more interesting. That's assuming you wanted to go somewhere further with the game of course.

Just sort of throwing ideas around, since you said that making the hack might be fun but you didn't think people would really be interested in playing it "as-is".
While not quite as well made, this hack called Pokémon Fuligin was created where you ended up joining team rocket, it wasn't really a dominate part of the game though, as you where still required to get badges and beat the elite four. I myself miss pokemon toxicpurple, it had so much going to it.
