Welcome new students, please have your Application tickets and recommendations with you for orientation
Deep in the Orre region, is a secluded vale with one of the few oases in the region, a plateau with a waterfall in the middle of a forest. The plateau has it's own inner cave network dug out by Pokemon, giving it nearly every natural setting and it's own small population of wild Pokemon. As a result, the united Pokemon Leagues collaborated and founded a school for the education of up and coming Ace Trainers. Everybody attending the school has at least a few badges from their own region, and was issued a scholarship by a gym leader after an impressive showing displaying honor and talent in battle.
The school focuses entirely on Pokemon battling, training possible future gym leaders. It does not however, offer any courses on care of Pokemon and forming strong partnerships, the headmaster Steven, of the mind that is something that cannot be taught and must be learned by everyone. As a result, some trainers there can be abusive to their partners, but the system is only there to teach them how to battle.
Players will take the role of the newest group of students entering the school, some people will also be in control of teachers. I have not worked out how many teachers and of what subjects I need yet.
The school has numerous high quality services and functions provided by the Leagues, naturally, like any civilized area, it has a Pokemon Center and Pokemart. Among other things, it also has it's own lab, operated by Professor Adansonia (it's a type of tree!) gym area, including a simulator allowing anybody to set up their own Gym and challenge others. As well as a competitive battle arena with independently formed teams. And a day care center. Few wild Pokemon wander the grounds, and trainers are encouraged to bring their own team they seek to keep with them. Off days and unlimited transportation to any region are permitted to allow students to capture more Pokemon.
Of course, this is Orre, and Cipher still exists. The recently funded battle school, with it's number of unaware and even flat out vicious trainers, a perfect place to distribute and create more Shadow Pokemon...
