    Default Pokemon Academy Year II: Second Year Rhapsody

    .....So....how can I start this. Well for those of you that have read Dragon's Roar then I welcome you back and for those that didn't well I still welcome you to this new story that is the sequel to Dragon's Roar.

    If some of you took notice a few months ago about a story called Pokemon Academy: Dragon's Roar that kept getting updated once every weeks (or two weeks or months depending on how big the block was) then you might've been curious as to why it was so popular.

    Pokemon Academy is basically just that the adventures of a group of kids at a Pokemon academy the thing that sets it apart is something that makes the story very complex. The story begins in Elemental Academy which is part of an island archipelago located somewhere in between the four main regions while also being an academy surrounded by mystery.

    The other thing that sets this fic apart from what you'd expect in an academy fic is Chigon a fakemon...and if you're still reading this after reading the word fakemon I can reassure you that you don't have to worry about a super powerful Pokemon that no one can defeat and that has no weakness, Chigon is basically a Pokemon that was unique to the archipelago thousands of years ago and that our main character Reggie found one day during his first year. Chigon holds a great power that is seek by many a power that could destroy the world and Reggie has to protect it along with his friends.

    That's basically the plot of Dragon's Roar...but we're taking a different turn here. Instead of being super ultra action packed SYR will be a fic constructed by various ideas that I didn't get to use back in the first fic and it'll be a way for new readers to get into the story while I work out the main plot that doesn't mean it won't have action of course.

    If you want to read the first installment of this series the link will be here: Pokemon Academy: Dragon's Roar (Ended)

    If you want to take the shortcut you can always visit the atlas. at the moment it only has a quick summary and character information but it will be updated with arcs and an explanation to Chigon.

    Since I finished the story before the previous awards I didn't get a chance to put up the new awards I got so I'll do it here.




    Also if you'd like to be tag every time there's an update then I'll add you to the list.

    Well I've read both prologues and I did a few things, they're in bold.





    Right before you jump onto me about nitpicking the prologues, I’d like to say I didn’t as I didn’t do every flaw such as your commas. Most of your flaws I’m guessing are because you don’t read carefully enough after you’ve completed the chapter. Silly little things ruin the flow of the reader. I might not be taken seriously as my fic is a total farce and failure, but trust me, read everything properly, don’t skim just because you’ve finished.

    Also, I think you can get a tad clumsy in some of your sentences. They do seem repetitive, though, though, though. Try rephrasing and reworking sentences to make it a little fresher.

    And my biggest point to emphasize is about commas. I didn’t highlight any in your prologue as there’s a few, but you need to know how to use them correctly as it can really change your writing. The best way to know when to put a comma is just by reading it. Read it plain and simple, nice slow place and when you breathe and take a pause, stick the comma in there. Here’s my quick, self-made guide to use commas;

    P-L-A-N-C-S
    Pause, List, Adjective, Names, Clauses, Speech

    Ok that’s basically not the negatives, but things you need to be wary about.

    Onto your characters. I like them (especially Stacy, no biased decision there). Of course this is the prologue so we’re not really seeing your characters doing much so don’t worry. Now I don’t know if it’s me or anyone else see’s this, all your character’s will have the same actions as they all have similar action. If one of them nods, they all bloody nod. Scratching chin, exclaiming, pointed out, grin. Like, it’s not just in this prologue, it overall in your writing. Maybe you need to open up to different things because sooner or later, your characters seem to be having the same characteristics. That’s something I do really feel strong about as I quite enjoy literary fiction so characterization is something that I look into.

    Erm, what else to say? Length is fine, you’re not trying too hard to add insanely large words to make the fic seem really good and you’ve got a good pace.

    So yeah, overall good and I know this review looks bad and I might be like the new reviewer making faults of a fic that’s already survived fifty chapters, but I’d just really love if you focused on these tiny things. It’s these simplest things that can turn a goodish fic, into a solid, consistent fic.

    Oh and thanks for the mention and tag me from now on please!

    Honestly I'm thankful for your review. It doesn't matter if you're a new reader that has nothing to do with what your opinion about the chapter is.

    Yeah commas have been one of my biggest problems as well as the reactions I basically resort to them when I can't think of anything better but I'm trying to get over that at the moment. The commas thing might take a while but I'm sure I can get the hang of it soon enough.

    Anyhow I really liked your review and I'll be sure to tag you once the next chapter comes out.

    And don't worry after spending a year RPing with you I know that you're not to be underestimated xD frankly I was sure that if your review was good it meant that I pretty much did great since I was mostly expecting this kind of review.

    It's good and interesting, though I'm not fond of the whole Prologue 1 and 2 thing you're doing. I look forward to the character development of the new ones and how the old characters grow from here.

    There.

    I split the prologues into two because it would've been way too long for a prologue and this way I could divide the post and put it in spoiler tags.

    I like it!

    Your writing has improved significantly (although you're still having comma troubles!), and your characters are as well done as ever. I'm sad that Jordan's gone, it was refreshing to have the perspective of an outsider and fairly mediocre kid. Maybe he'll show up later, though. Can't tell where this is going yet (I'll have to go back and read the epilogues of DR), but I'm looking forward to its continuation.

    Yeah it took a lot of time for me to come to the conclusion is getting Jordan out from this one, I just felt like he wasn't contributing much to the story aside from comic relief and the ocassional snark.

    I suppose it was a good decision, you've been having to balance a lot of characters.

    And now that I'm back from my vacation it's time to continue now I'll post the awaited first chapter.

    Well I tried but for some reason the mention never gets it right so I had to resort to this.


    Chapter 1: There’s Always a First Day

    Reggie pulled the sheet of his bed past his pillow before turning to look down at the long sleeved red jacket. He looked around his room once more with a bit of nostalgia in his eyes. It was just like he remembered, simple and furnished such that only a person as simple as the room would enjoy. “I should get ready.” He turned around and walked over to the closet before pulling out a short sleeved black shirt.

    After the new students had been sorted into their dorm the night before so that everyone was set to go to their own dorm for their welcoming dinner. While he wanted to get to know the new head of the Charizard Flame dorm he was too tired from the trip so he and Miko spent most of the night in the room with each other.

    A smile crossed his face after he remembered the previous night. It had been a long time since he and Miko had had a chance to talk to each other like that, something that brought a lot of happiness to him.

    “Chi!” Reggie turned towards the door as he saw Chigon walking in drowsily alongside Reggie’s Azumarill.

    “Oh, hey guys. How did you sleep?” he asked after kneeling down to pet Chigon and trying to help Azumarill wake up. “Are the others still sleeping?”

    “Azu,” the Azumarill replied with a slow nod from its head; though it almost toppled over due to its lethargy. Reggie stood up from the floor and turned to look at the red jacket and matching pants before grabbing the pants.

    “All right, I gotta get to class so you guys remember to stay here,” Reggie instructed while he finished dressing. He turned around to make sure that his Pokémon understood, only for a look of shock to take over his face as he saw his Donphan and Fraxure pulling Chigon back by its tail. “Chigon, I’m sorry, but I can’t keep taking you with me, you have to learn to listen,” Reggie replied with a slight chuckle, feeling a little sorry for the dragon Pokémon.

    “Anyway, I’ll see you guys later,” he gave them a quick wave before grabbing his books and walking out of the room; allowing his Donphan to close the door behind him.

    “I've gotta get him a leash,” Reggie deadpanned as he walked out of the room. He looked at the surroundings of the dorm. No matter how many times he looked at it he could never find the differences between it and an apartment complex. The doors were arranged to provide maximum use of space, regularly occurring across a hallway.

    He looked down to the ground floor where there was a small common room set up with a pair of red couches on each side and the elevator booth in the center. This caused it to divide the building in to separate halves. Most people didn’t use the common room either way since it was easier to simply hang out in the Pokémon Center or on the battle field outside.

    His thoughts quickly wandered back towards the new teachers. Kevin seemed to be kind of cool, or at least that was the vibe he got from him. He knew that the guys would definitely love Stacy and Taisha; though how the girls would react to them getting a lot of attention was still indefinite. The opposite could be said for Siegfreed who seemed like the kind of teacher one would see in those teenage movies that are always getting girls to chase them.

    “Our school is so predictable, it's scary,” Reggie mused.

    ***

    Stacy smiled to herself as she finished setting up her classroom. She hadn’t slept a wink the night before just thinking about her first day of teaching and how she would fare out. She could at least tell that most of the students were likable and that it'd to depend on her whether they got along or not.

    “I think this should be fine,” Stacy pointed out as she walked over to her desk and served herself a cup of fresh brew tea. She raised the cup and smiled. “I love a good cup of tea in the morning,” she giggled before sipping a little from it and lowering the cup.

    The classroom had now been set up with various pictures of Pokémon whose body parts and features had been described and pointed out. In the corner, a large fish tank seemed to be empty at the moment. “I have to find something for that tank, but Milotic’s too big,” she wondered while scratching her chin.

    She leaned back against her chair, thinking to the night before when she had to introduce herself to the dorm that she had been assigned. While the Blastoise Aqua dorm was pretty good it still felt kind of hard for her to take charge considering that she was new and all. “That guy’s Fin is awfully friendly though. I should watch out just in case,” she narrowed her eyes before taking another sip from her tea.

    “You’re an early bird, aren’t you?” Stacy turned around to look at Siegfreed grinning. “Sorry. It’s just that I heard you talking so I wanted to check it out,” he replied before looking at Stacy with a look that wondered if he could walk in.

    “Oh. Come in, I don’t mind,” she smiled before motioning for Siegfreed to enter.

    “It’s such a beautiful morning, don’t you think. Kind of makes you want to just stare into the sun and the far off sea,” Siegfreed replied with a slight chuckle as he sat down in one of the two chairs that had been set up in front of Stacy’s desk. “So, are you nervous about teaching Biology?”

    “Not at all, I’m used to it by now. I was teaching Biology in the last school I was in as well,” Stacy answered with a quick nod from her head before offering Siegfreed a cup of tea, though his gracefully declined before deciding to speak again.

    “Where did you study before, Miss Lewis?” Siegfreed asked curiously, causing Stacy to snicker softly.

    “Call me Stacy. As for where I studied, well, it wasn’t as big as this place but it was still pretty big, I was actually a teacher a Canalave City University,” she explained before putting the empty cup down and sighing. “It was good and I had a lot of fun there.”

    “What happened then?” Siegfreed asked; noticing that Stacy’s smile seemed to have gone a little serious. “I don’t want to be rude,” he said hastily.

    “No, it’s okay. Something happened that’s all,” Stacy chuckled softly before getting up from her seat. “Maybe you should go to your classroom; according to the clock, classes should start soon.”

    “Again, you are right, my dear Stacy,” Siegfreed grinned as he got up from the desk and bowed. “I hope you have a nice day and good luck.” He then gave her a quick wave and proceeded to walk out of the classroom.

    ***

    Reggie made his way through the halls of the castle while walking out of the tower that connected the castle with the Charizard Flame dorm. He felt different as he looked at the building. For one, it all felt as if he was a rat running around a labyrinth; he barely knew the way and had to look at the map that they had been handed out multiple times.

    He looked out the window, allowing him to get a full view of the surroundings and of all the people that were beginning to make their way inside the castle. “You look out of it today, man.” Reggie’s eyes shifted from looking out the window to searching for the source of the voice.

    Standing behind him was a teenager around seventeen years old with long curly black colored hair. He had a pair of amber colored eyes that matched with the Pikachu Thunder uniform he was wearing; which was pretty much like Reggie’s except yellow.

    “Jack you scared me for a minute,” Reggie sighed in relief as he looked at his friend turned rival. Jack had been one of the people that teased Reggie the year before but after a few understandings the two managed to form a sort of friendship. “I didn’t see you yesterday. How was your summer?”

    “Pretty good,” Jack simply nodded his head and began walking, leaving Reggie behind.

    “What class do you have now?” Reggie began chasing after Jack; hoping that he would share the same class and as thus would let him follow. “I’m supposed to go to Biology right now.”

    “Guess we’re in the same class,” Jack nodded his head as Reggie grinned in his mind. “And I think it’s right over there.”

    “Good morning and welcome ,” Reggie smiled as he saw Stacy greeting the students that made their way into her class with a smile on her face. “Oh. You’re that kid from yesterday. Reggie isn’t it?” she asked curiously once Reggie and Jack stopped to look at her.

    “Yeah, nice to see you again, Miss Lewis,” Reggie greeted with a respectful nod from his head before turning to look at Jack who just nodded in the same manner before walking in. “That’s Jack. He’s really quiet.”

    “Oh, I wouldn’t worry about it. I’m sure that I can break through him in no time,” she chuckled softly before pointing at Reggie with her finger. “And I told you yesterday, didn’t I? Call me Stacy, Ms. Lewis makes me sound old,” she explained playfully.

    Reggie nodded his head as he walked in and found a place to sit down. Stacy sighed before checking the halls one last time, after deciding that no one else was inside she closed the door to the classroom and made her way towards her desk. She could feel nervousness and anxiety fill her as she tried to remember everything that she had planned for the day. “Well, good morning class. My name’s Stacy Lewis, though you can call me Stacy and I’ll be your new Biology teacher starting today. I hope we get along and don’t worry, I’m not one of those grumpy teachers, you do have to pay attention. I might be nice but I’m not someone you can take advantage of,” she said with a quick wink before turning to the black board and grabbing a piece of chalk.

    Jack and Reggie looked around the classroom. While people had already taken out their notebooks and pencils the boys in the class seemed to be a little…distracted as they looked at Stacy trying to write on the top of the board. “I guess everyone’s got an eye for her already,” Jack pointed out while taking notes. He looked over at Reggie who had a small blush on his face while looking down at his notebook. “You thought about it too, didn’t ya?”

    “Sorry, it’s just…It’s hard not to,” Reggie whined quietly; not wanting everyone to hear what he and Jack were talking about.

    “You’ve fallen really low man,” Jack groaned as he put his head on top of the palm of his hand. While he had to admit that Stacy was hot he wasn’t exactly fond of the fact that everyone acted like it was such a big deal; especially considering that she was their teacher after all.

    “Well it isn’t easy to ignore,” Reggie replied with a slight groan. His attention was suddenly shifted towards the door though, after hearing it opening and then seeing a figure walk in; something that caused everyone to turn around.

    “What?” said the spiky white haired teenager that was standing by the door. He had a pair of black eyes which matched with his long sleeved black jacket and pants. Reggie and Jack just looked at each other before sighing.

    Darren Schifer, a member of the Houndoom Dark dorm and the person that could be considered the strongest trainer in the academy. While Darren was famous around the academy it was mostly because of his cold-heartedness and the fact that he always tried to shrug people off. Even though Darren tried to steal Chigon from Reggie countless times during the previous year Reggie had always tried to understand Darren; though the latter wasn't exactly someone who opened up to people.

    “And who might you be?” Stacy asked after turning around to look at Darren. “I mean, you’re about five minutes late so you must have a good explanation,” she nodded her head while narrowing her eyes at him.

    Darren just looked at Stacy before scanning the class with boredom. “I overslept,” he replied before walking over to one of the desks and sitting down. “Is that a good enough excuse for you?”

    “No it’s not. Now, I’m not going to tell you that it was wrong and I’m actually going to trust you but you can at least be a little more respectful,” Stacy scolded as she walked over to the desk Darren was sitting on. “Now what’s your name?”

    “Darren Schifer,” Darren replied as he looked at the board. “Personally I’d rather some model turned teacher stopped trying to act tough when she’s scared out of her wits on the inside.” The whole class gasped as he said this while Stacy just gave him a light frown.

    “Well, I didn’t want to do this on the first day but I’m gonna have to give you detention. And not normal detention, you’ll be helping me clean the classroom after class, got it?” Stacy looked down at him with a slight glare. She didn’t want to come off as rude or mean but Darren wasn’t even trying to give her a chance.

    “Do what you gotta do,” Darren shrugged before taking his notebook and pencil out; seemingly ignoring Stacy. Stacy just groaned in annoyance before walking back to the board.

    “He’s a charming as ever,” Jack pointed out sarcastically after seeing the little show that Darren had put up. Reggie just sighed, he probably shouldn’t expect better from Darren but normally he would just shrug it off instead of replying.

    “No…he has changed... he doesn’t want to acknowledge it, though,” Reggie shook his head in disagreement while staring at Darren.

    ***

    Stacy sighed to herself as she cleaned the black board once more. The sun was beginning to set, causing the room to be lit in a clear orange color. “In the end he didn’t show up. I really need to talk to that kid,” she frowned while putting her hands on her temples. After Darren had failed to show up to help her she decided to clean up on her own but she moved slowly because of wanting to leave something for him in case he showed up.

    “Looks like he isn’t dedicated enough,” Stacy shook her head as she began stacking the desks together. Even after the argument with Darren the rest of her first day went pretty uneventful and she had managed to make some friendship with a few of her students; something that made her feel a lot better since she thought that they’d be too distant from her due to age difference.

    She suddenly turned around as she heard the door open; hope rising in her at thinking that Darren actually followed his word. Once she turned around she noticed it was someone else a male teenager around sixteen years old or so. He had long dirty blond hair that fell to his shoulders along with a pair of hazel colored eyes. He wore a blue colored long sleeved jacket along with a pair of pants to match, meaning that not only was he a Blastoise Aqua student but part of the dorm Stacy was in charge of.

    “Oh, what is it? Did something happen at the dorm?” Stacy asked warmly as the student closed the door and walked deeper into the classroom.

    “No. I was just passing by the halls since I forgot a notebook and I couldn’t help but notice that you were alone cleaning the classroom,” he replied with a smile before grabbing one of the chairs and beginning to stack them. “So I thought I could help you out.”

    “Oh, thanks. Someone else was supposed to help me but he didn’t show up,” Stacy nodded her head gratefully while looking at the boy. She could notice a slight grin on his face though she decided not to pay too much attention to it. “What was your name again?”

    “The name’s Chris and as you probably noticed I’m in your dorm as well,” Chris answered while raising his sleeves. “Personally I like you better than our old dorm head, he was really boring and barely even talked to us so having someone as pretty and friendly as you is a big step up,” he explained, making Stacy chuckle a little.

    “Thanks. Though I still have a long way to go considering today was just my first day,” Stacy smiled as she finished stacking the desks before turning to look at Chris. “Well I’m done. Thanks for you…” before she could finish her sentence she was thrown against the steel locker that was in the back of the classroom; causing her to hit her head and slide down onto the ground. “What are you…” she groaned as she tried to sit upright on the floor.

    “So you’re Stacy Lewis. I didn’t think my brother was lying but I thought you’ll be a little uglier from what he told me since he tends to overreact,” Chris chuckled to himself as he walked over to the knocked down Stacy. “Does the name Lawrence Sail remind you of anything?”

    A look of shock and confusion went through Stacy’s face as she looked up at Chris who just chuckled to himself. “Of course you remember.” He walked over to her and proceeded to crouch down in front of her. “He is the reason that you were fired from Canalave university after all…having sex with a student is a really big foul after all.”

    “That was a mistake and you have no right to do this,” Stacy began crawling away while trying to stand up only for Chris to grab her by the neck and raise her up instead. Even though she was slightly taller than him he had a lot more strength, clearly evident by the effortless way he dragged her up. “A student shouldn’t be acting like this, it’s just illogical.”

    “Well, sadly for you this is an illogical school,” Chris replied with a sadistic grin on his face before throwing Stacy back down. “I guess me and my brother have that dominant and wild side in common, when we see something that we want we just have to get it.” He threw himself down and pinned Stacy to the floor before ripping the navy under shirt that she wore under her blue jacket, causing her pink colored bra to burst out along with her ample chest.

    “Stop it!” Stacy yelled before bending her legs and kicking Chris’s stomach as hard as she could; causing him to be thrown onto his back. She decided to take this chance and began running towards her desk where her pokeballs were; she knew that she would be able to defend herself better if she had her Pokémon out.

    “Like hell you will!” Chris began following after her as he unhooked a pokeball from his belt. However, before he got a chance to throw it a powerful jet of flames fired through the wall and across the room, causing Chris to step back as the flames divided him from Stacy. “What the fuck?” Chris turned around; only to let out a gasp as he saw Darren leaning against the melted concrete with his Houndoom growling at the blond teenager.

    “You shouldn’t treat a lady like that, you know,” Darren pointed out with a cold look on his face as he clicked his fingers; signaling Houndoom to calm down and allow him to walk inside. “Especially since she’s the teacher.”

    “Who cares? I can just say she’s the one that came onto me, she did fuck my older brother two years ago any…” before he could finish his sentence he received a punch to the jaw by Darren, causing him to topple over on the floor.

    “I don’t think you’re that dense but I’m going to tell you this anyway,” Darren frowned as he stretched his knuckles. “Even if you do manage to get away with your original plan I am now a witness and trust me, two against one ain’t gonna work.”

    “Like the principal is going to believe some guys that spent half of last year out of class,” Chris wiped some blood off his mouth after he got up before snickering at Darren. “I don’t think so.”

    “Oh I know the principal. He’ll believe me, that I can assure you,” Daren walked over to Chris. He was ready this time though and before he could do anything Darren had already received a kick to his gut. Unfortunately for Chris he hadn’t planned things well; and as thus he couldn’t help but gasp as Darren pulled on his leg and threw him against the steel locker that Stacy had been thrown against not long ago. “Don’t try to beat me, this isn’t the type of thing you can beat me at.”

    “Shut up!” Chris yelled as he got up and charged towards Darren; only for him to be thrown against the window after Darren grabbed his arm.

    “You’re just a cannon fodder compared to all the people I’ve fought over the years. So get your head out of your ass and look at the difference,” Darren began walking over to Chris while raising his right fist; prepared to give him the final blow.

    “Wait. Stop it!” he turned around to look at Stacy, who was holding her pokeball in front of her face, she was prepared to use it in case the fight got too rowdy. “If you keep hurting him then you’ll be the one that’ll get in trouble,” she pointed out as she looked at a now unconscious Chris. “He’s not even awake anymore.”

    Darren sighed in annoyance before turning around and walking over to Stacy. She stepped back for a moment, especially when Darren put his hand on the back of her head. “What are you doing?” Stacy asked with a slight blush on her face as Darren stepped back.

    She gasped at the sight of Darren’s right palm; which was now completely red after he retrieved it from the back of her head. “That must’ve been cause of the hit against the locker,” Stacy pointed out as she felt the warm red blood running down her blue hair.

    “Yeah. Do you have any med kits here?” Darren asked as he turned to look at Stacy’s desk and began searching for something he could use to fix her wound.

    “Second drawer to the left,” Stacy answered before sitting down on the floor and making pressure with her right hand.

    ***

    After a few minutes Darren had been able to wash most of the blood up and stitch the wound before he started bandaging Stacy’s forehead. “That should do it,” Darren muttered as he cut the bandage and finished putting it on Stacy’s forehead.

    “Thanks,” Stacy replied while feeling the bandages around her forehead and sighing with relief. Things would’ve turned bad if Darren hadn’t healed her wound, they would’ve been even worse if he hadn’t even gone to save her. “You’re really good with first aid.”

    “I’ve been travelling and living on my own for seven years. You can say that it comes with that,” Darren replied bluntly while packaging the med kit once more.

    “I just have one question. Why did you come?” Stacy asked with a raised eyebrow. “I waited on you for like an hour before I started cleaning on my own.”

    “Well…I can’t miss my afternoon training, so when class let up I decided that I’ll be back to help you in an hour,” Darren explained; now putting the med kit back in the drawer and closing it. “I lost track of time though,” he sighed before getting up and dusting himself up. Stacy just smiled, her eyes shifted to the floor. Even if he was planning on being late anyway he was still going to go help her after she asked him to. “So what was all that. I mean that guys was pretty….straightforward.”

    “It was a mistake I did back in Canalave University,” Stacy sighed as she got up from the floor and dusted herself up. “I was 26 back then and I had just retired from modeling…” at this Darren snickered; apparently not surprised that his guess was right. “Oh, can it,” Stacy frowned. “Anyway. I was still a new teacher and I just wanted for my students to like me, especially since the age difference wasn’t that huge.”

    “While everyone got along with me and treated me like part of their group I started to…lose it in a way. One night I went out to party with one of my students and I ended up getting drunk and well….” She stopped for a moment, though Darren just signaled her to stop since he could figure out what happened next on his own.

    “After we had sex he started blabbering to his friends and the staff eventually caught on and I got fired the next day,” Stacy chuckled to herself while scratching her chin. “I wanted to start over but now things just seem to have gone sour since my history caught on with me.”

    “Don’t worry about it. Just tell the principal what really happened and he’ll be expelled, there are cameras in each classroom anyway,” Darren shrugged as he made his way towards the door. “Also…don’t let your past judge you.” Stacy raised her head so that she could look at his back. “If you really want to change then you have to leave your past behind, that’s something I had to learn the hard way,” Darren looked down at the floor for a second.

    Maybe they did have something in common. Stacy thought that Darren was just the usual bad boy that wouldn’t listen to anyone, but for him to actually have a past that he wanted to forget just like she did was something that changed things completely. “See you tomorrow,” he waved at her one last time before walking out of the classroom and leaving Stacy to herself.

    ***

    The next morning Stacy was still wearing the bandages from the night before, something that worked well as proof for the principal. Luckily enough Brendan decided that Stacy had the truth on her side and began to file for Chris to get expelled, and while Stacy had to give her students a fake story to justify for her wound she was at least able to start off with the right foot once and for all.

    “She seems happier today doesn’t she,” Reggie pointed out as he looked at Stacy writing on the board. “Wonder what happened.”

    “I don’t know, but I guess it was something good,” Jack nodded his head before catching a glimpse of Darren who was now writing down notes like never before. “He seems to have changed, too.”

    Reggie just grinned as he looked at both Stacy and Darren. “Who knows. Maybe this year will be different from others,” he laughed softly as he looked out the window at the blazing sun.

    I liked this chapter but I feel a bit bad for Stacy due her past. But it was really great from Darren to help her out like that, he seems to be improving as well. I'm aware he spent a lot of time hunting Reggie's Chigon in the previous series but I hope he's can redeem himself in this follow-up. Nothing much happened, there's no plot yet (or maybe it's hinted somewhere in the chapter? xD) so I'm looking forward to the next chapter. Anyway, keep it up!

    Some good character development here. I'm assuming that most of the chapters are going to be episodic like this? With their own little mini-plots in each? A lot of people try to do stuff like that, but this is the best I've seen. so far, at least. Some more grammar mistakes, but I enjoyed it. Keep up the good work!

    Well most chapters will be episodic some will be put into short mini-arcs of tow to three chapters but they'll be chapters that you can read at any time really.

    Chapter 2: Reggie and Matthew, Under Achievers Unite!

    While Elemental Academy was a Pokémon Academy, it still had plenty of spots for students to hang out with their friends. One such place was The Pizza Element, a pizza restaurant located near the right corner of the academy’s castle. Like one would expect, this spot was very famous for students to eat and hang out... though there were also some students that did something completely different.

    “Hey waiter, serve me another soda!” Fin yelled, grabbing his empty cup of soda and waving it above his head.

    “Fuck you.” Fin chuckled slightly at the look of Reggie’s expression after he walked over to the table. He was wearing a short sleeved white shirt with a heat that had a pizza symbol on it along with a pair of black jeans. “You know, you guys aren’t the only customers I’m tending to,” he frowned.

    “Oh, come on, Reggie, let us enjoy this,” Miko laughed as she took a bite from her pizza along with Marie. “You look really funny like that, especially considering that you’re not coordinated.” Reggie just blushed at this, feeling irritated at the teasing.

    “Oh, lighten up cuz…and say cheese!” Valerie exclaimed as she took a picture of Reggie; causing him to cover his face so as to avoid the light.

    “Anyway, I thought you already paid off your scholarship last year,” Fin pointed out as he grabbed the remaining slice of pizza and took a large bite out of it. “Why are you still working?”

    “I paid my scholarship for last year, I have to pay it off each year though,” Reggie replied with a sigh of exasperation. “It’s really tiring, to have to work all afternoon like this.”

    “I don’t know. You kind of look cool working Reggie,” Marie giggled; causing Reggie to blush slight and ruffle the back of his head. “Beside,s we get free pizza so that’s an upside.”

    “You guys just come here for the free pizzas, don’t you?” Reggie deadpanned, causing his friends to look at each other before nodding their heads in agreement.

    “Well, that, and to see how you fare out,” Fin gave him a sly grin before raising his right thumb.

    “Well I won’t fare well if you guys keep taking all my time,” Reggie pointed out.

    “Just a quick question. How come Chigon’s actually listened to you recently and hasn’t thrown a tantrum or found a way to sneak out of your room and find you?” Valerie asked with a raised eyebrow; mostly because Chigon couldn’t afford spend two hours away from Reggie.

    “I keep taking the pizzas and ingredients that aren’t used at the end of the day for him and the others to eat,” Reggie nodded his head before grabbing Fin’s soda; deciding that he might as well refill it. “It gets the job done.”

    The group’s attention was suddenly turned as they heard a large crash coming from the other side of the restaurant; issuing Reggie to walk over, with his friends following close behind. Reggie just looked down at the soda on the floor as well as the lightly blond waiter that was kneeling down on the floor trying desperately to clean it up. “I’m so sorry. I just tripped. I’m really sorry!” the teenager apologized as he looked up at the table he was taking care of.

    “Not again…” Reggie groaned as he looked at the teenager while he rinsed the towel off on a bucket that he had pulled along.

    “Who’s that?” Marie asked with a confused look on her face; something that matched most of the people that were looking at the scene.

    “That’s Matthew, he’s working here as well, unlike me though he’s doing it to earn a little money of his own,” Reggie replied with sigh as he looked at the group of students that had been on the table Matthew was serving. One of them stood up tall, his tanned and muscular face matching the smug grin on his face.

    He had spiky brown hair that was combed towards the back of his head; allowing people to see his large forehead which emphasized the bones under his skin. He was wearing a black uniform with the sleeves torn off, coupled with a sleeveless hoodie under the jacket and a pair of black jeans.

    “What the hell, man? You’re lucky that didn’t splash on me!” he gritted his teeth at Matthew before splashing what remained on the floor against his face, the only reason he hadn’t been able to actually stomp on Matthew’s hand was because he didn’t aim right. “You shouldn’t even be working here if you’re so slow and clumsy.”

    “I’m so sorry…it’s just I…” Matthew didn’t reply and instead went back to cleaning the remaining soda after which he proceeded to get up.

    “Oh, now I remember him. He’s a first year at my dorm though I heard he was pretty much a loner,” Marie pointed out from where she stood, causing everyone to look at her. For Matthew to be in the Roserade Leaf dorm was a bit of a mismatch, considering their reputation for handling themselves well.

    “Hey, are you listening to me dumbass?!?” Their attention was brought back towards the Houndoom Dark student who had now raised Matthew by the neck of his shirt and had him against the wall.

    “You guys call the manager,” Reggie turned to his friends before taking off his hat and walking over.

    Fin looked at Reggie then at the Houndoom Dark Student. If Reggie was trying to act like a hero then he knew that it would just come bite him in the ass if he didn’t bail him out. He looked down at the slice of pizza in his hand then at Reggie. “Pizza or friend. Really tough cal…” before he could finish his sentence he was delivered various glares from Miko, Marie and Valerie all willing to spell it out for him. “Okay, okay, I’ll go,” Fin groaned as he threw the slice aside and followed Reggie.

    “Hey stop that!” Reggie commanded, motioning for the Houndoom Dark student to turn around and raise an eyebrow at Reggie who had now become an annoyance in his eyes. “This isn’t the place nor the time, besides, it isn’t his fault that he tripped.”

    “Who the hell are you, thinking you can give me orders?” the teenager let go of Matthew before fully turning around; making Reggie take a step back. “You’re just another wimpy waiter just like him.”

    “I can still stop you though.” Inwardly, Reggie groaned to himself. He knew that he couldn’t really follow his word; he was really out of practice after spending three months without sparring with anyone.

    “Really?” he smirked. “You and what army?” Reggie raised his head at that question and quickly looked behind. He sighed a sigh of relief as he saw Fin standing right behind him and padding his right shoulder.

    “I’m not an army but I think I’m good enough for you,” Fin replied with a sly smile on his face, something that caused the Houndoom Dark student to step away in fear.

    Reggie looked at Fin for a moment before regaining his confidence. He then looked at Matthew before glaring at the teenager. “What’s your name?”

    “I should ask you that. But I guess it doesn’t matter. People call me Sax,” Sax pointed at himself with pride and confidence.

    “Well Sax,” Reggie pointed out the last part with a more mocking tone, making Sax frown in return. “We’re in a Pokémon Academy so let’s do things how they’re supposed to. Instead of fighting like apes how about we settle this with a Pokémon battle.”

    “Well I’ll be happy t…”

    “Not now,” Reggie groaned. “Neither of us have any Pokémon on us including Matthew.”

    “And why the hell would that guy need any Pokémon to begin with?” Sax snickered in response. “After all, you’re the one that’s picking the fight,” he chuckled to himself confident that he could win whether it was Reggie or Matthew that he had to battle.

    “Because I challenge you to a Double Battle, me and Matthew against you and whoever you want your partner to be,” Reggie nodded his head proudly before walking next to Matthew and getting him to look up from the floor. “How about tomorrow after class? And just so that you can keep the audience you so want we’ll do it at the stadium so that everyone can see us kick your ass.”

    Reggie looked towards Matthew; realizing that his coworker seemed to still be unsure about the idea. “Hey I’m nervous too. But this is for your own good,” Reggie smiled Matthew raised his head to look at him; a little shock on his face.

    “Yeah, I guess,” Matthew muttered with a slow nod of his head.

    Sax just grinned with confidence before turning around and pocketing his hands. “All right then. Tomorrow afternoon after class, you guys better make prepare yourself,” she snickered slightly before walking off, pushing some people aside so that he could make his way through.

    After they were sure that Sax had left Miko and Fin turned to look at Reggie and grinned. “So how did it feel to take a stand for someone else?” they both asked before chuckling softly.

    “I almost lost it” Reggie sighed making Matthew look at him with an amazed look, mostly because he thought Reggie actually was as confident as what he had let on. “I don’t know how you do it,” Reggie whined while ruffling the back of his head before looking at Matthew. “But don’t worry, I’m sure we can win. I mean, we just need some training before the battle,” he laughed innocently as he tried to make Matthew feel better.

    “Are you crazy!?” Matthew yelled with a scared look on his face, causing Reggie to cover his ears for a moment. “You didn’t have to do that, I was the one that tripped, there was no reason for a challenge! Now what the hell will I do?”

    “Hey,” Reggie frowned before putting his hand on Matthew’s shoulder. “Even so they shouldn’t have treated you like that and if we talked to the boss about it they would just get you once school lets out tomorrow. This way we’ll show them that they shouldn’t treat you so badly,” Reggie grinned slightly as he looked at Matthew; not able to help himself in pointing out the similarities between the two. “I know how you feel Matthew which is why I want to help you anyway I can.”

    “Don’t you think you overreacted though?” Matthew narrowed his eyes at Reggie. Reggie just sighed, he had to admit that he acted without thinking, but he still couldn’t stand to see how Matthew got abused by Sax.

    “Hey, don’t worry about it man,” Reggie raised his head after noticing that Fin had gotten in between him and Matthew. “The battle is tomorrow so there’s plenty of time to practice for the match,” he laughed confidently before grinning at the two of them. “And I’ll train you myself.”

    “Excuse me Fin, but don’t you have a project to finish?” Valerie pointed out from where she stood, causing Fin to look over at her. “Remember that project for strategies that Siegfreed gave us? It’s due in two days and we’re only halfway done.” Reggie and Matthew both looked up at Fin whose confidence had decreased exponentially by now.

    “Oh right….sorry Reg,” Fin chuckled innocently before patting Reggie’s shoulder.

    “Well that sucks,” Reggie scratched the back of his head in frustration. Doubt began to course through his mind at that moment, if he wasn’t able to train Matthew then they had no chance; especially considering that Reggie didn’t have a lot of skill on his own.

    “Actually there might be a chance,” Miko pointed out with a smile on her face. “Our dorm head Kevin, he’s the battle teacher remember and I heard he’s really good.” Reggie scratched his chin, he hadn’t exactly talked to Kevin outside of class and he didn’t know the guy well aside from that feeling of seeing him somewhere before that he always got. “You should give it a try.”

    “Yeah I guess you’re right,” Reggie replied with a nod before walking over to Miko. “Me and Matthew are going to finish for the day and then we’ll go talk to Kevin,” he said before turning to Matthew once more. “Does that work for you?”

    “Sure,” Matthew nodded in agreement before walking off.

    ***

    Reggie and Matthew made their way towards the back of the Charizard Flame dorm where a two floored red house stood facing the entrance to the forest. “That’s the head’s cabin. I still don’t know why they put it so far away though,” Reggie pointed out before looking back at Matthew, who had gotten farther and farther from them as they walked. “What is it?”

    “I’m still not sure about this,” Matthew replied nervously; though he wasn’t able to look at Reggie’s eyes. “I mean, are you sure that we can’t just go back on it? If we lose it’s going to end up pretty bad,” he pointed out; finally raising his head.

    Reggie and Matthew kept exchanging glances for what seemed like hours; both of them trying to see if what they were doing was right. While Reggie had gotten better from the point he was in last year he was still not a good enough trainer without luck on his side. Now he had to defend Matthew’s pride as well as his own.

    Suddenly the memories of him walking around in the rain after being defeated in a battle came into his mind He couldn't let Matthew become a mirror version of himself all those years ago.

    Reggie walked over to the door of the cabin before ringing the doorbell, only for a loud screech noise to come out from the siren on the roof; startling them both. "What the hell was that?" asked Matthew.

    “Sorry, I’m still trying to set up the cabin. Guess I mixed up the bell with the siren.” Reggie turned to the door, seeing Kevin Blaze walk out of the cabin and smiled at him, his long red haired waving a little as he walked out. “Sorry about that. Did you guys come to talk to me?”

    “Mr. Blaze, my name is Reggie Damon. Me and my friend Matthew came here for training,” Reggie explained as he got up and bowed his head down so as to show respect to his headmaster. “If it wouldn’t be too much, do you think you could help us? We have a battle ahead of us and we need all the preparations necessary.”

    “We would be grateful if you’d accept us,” Matthew requested; bowing his head as well. The two stood in that position for a while before raising their head, noticing the grin that had crossed Kevin’s face.

    “You guys don’t have to bow like that you’re only embarrassing yourselves,” Kevin chuckled to himself before patting both Reggie’s and Matthew’s shoulder. “If you want me to help you out then just ask since Reggie is part of my dorm, and it seems like you two will be fighting together. I’ll be glad to help you out too,” he said, the last part being solely directed towards Matthew.

    Matthew blushed slightly as he looked at Kevin before nodding his head. “Thanks, sir,” he said as he looked away; causing Reggie to raise an eyebrow but shrug afterwards.

    “Anyhow, when’s your battle?” Kevin asked before leading the two inside of the cabin. Reggie didn’t respond, taking in his surroundings. The cabin was bigger than one might expect from the outside and even though it had only been a few weeks since classes started it was fully decorated.

    There was a lounge sofa with a large flat screen TV looming over a small desk. In the corner of the living room one could see a small path that led towards the kitchen. “I’m still not done here. I’m planning on putting a library on the other side to keep my books and stuff,” Kevin explained before leading them to the living room. “So when’s this battle?”

    Matthew and Reggie turned to look at each other before both their faces became hesitant to tell him that they only had a day to prepare. “Tomorrow afternoon,” they both replied with apologetic looks in their faces.

    Kevin’s grinned disappeared almost completely before he started scratching the back of his head in thought. “That is indeed hard, we probably won’t get you ready in only a day,” he scratched his chin before smiling. “Unless we ask someone else, that is.”

    “Someone else?” Reggie and Matthew both looked at each other before they turned back to Kevin.

    ***

    About an hour later the two were sitting on a large sofa inside of the Houndoom Dark headmaster’s cabin. “I know Siegfreed’s our strategy teacher but I didn’t think he’ll be willing to help,” Reggie pointed out as he turned towards Matthew.

    “I’m sorry for taking so long, but I wasn’t expecting guests,” came Siegfreed’s voice after he exited the kitchen carrying a tray with four cups of tea on top of it; Kevin walking right behind him. “So, Kevin tells me that you guys need some training?” he asked as he lowered the tray down allowing both Reggie and Matthew to grab a cup.

    “Yes. Unfortunately we only have a day to train so we won’t mind if you say no,” Reggie said with an insecure tone in his voice; something that disappeared after he heard Siegfreed chuckle softly.

    “You said your name was Reggie Damon. You’re a friend of Darren’s aren’t you?” he asked before taking a quick sip from his cup of tea. “I could never say no to a friend of one of the students I’m in charge of... or any student for that matter,” he spoke with an air of soothing calm and sophistication as he lowered his cup softly. “A teacher’s job is to help their students in anyway they can, isn’t it?”

    “Really, you’d help?” Matthew smiled cheerfully before turning to Reggie; who was displaying a similar smile.

    “Then in that case we’re indebted to the both of you. Please train us well,” Reggie bowed his head slightly.

    “Oh we will,” Siegfreed and Kevin both grinned to each other; something that made Reggie and Matthew wonder what they had up their sleeve.

    To be Continued…

    Hmm,
    So, first up, I'd say that things are moving in an interesting direction. Reggie was clearly strong at the end of last book/fic/year, but it seems now he's doing worse.
    I also have to wonder, why'd you make them sound so formal? It seems....kind of off. It doesn't flow as well as it could have, I think mild respect would have been a bit more effective.
    At any rate, I'm interested in how things are going. Obviously the battles going to be exciting, lol, but I'm curious as to how Matthew's going to fit into the future. This was certainly a good chapter, but ease up on formality. Other than that, good job!

    That's mostly because Reggie himself is too formal when it comes to teachers especially ones that he doesn't know well like Kevin who just got in that year. And Matthew is pretty much the same.

    Also one of Reggie's weakness is that he isn't strong it's because of Chigon whose level of strength can increase in the heat of battle but without it Reggie is only a little bit stronger than the average student.

    Also Matthew is basically a character for this arc sort of a character for Reggie to draw inspiration and help but if people receive him well then I might add him into the story.
