Episode 1: The six qualifiers
Why are people born…you’re born one day and you come across this weird world that you don’t know, and you can’t hope for anything good to come from it…why do people live for if they don’t know what’s going to happen to them in life…and most importantly, why would someone want to live a life where they chase a dream they can’t reach.
Those were the words from the book we were reading in class a week ago; I’ve been thinking about those lines every single day for the past week, I mean why would someone write something that really made life suck; what was the message in that.
Well I had a lot of time to think about that. I was sleeping during Mr. Medina’s class; something I do a lot might I say. I was finally in the place of my dreams when I heard a loud noise coming from my seat. I jumped up and saw Mr. Medina glaring at me with his piercing blue eyes; I never noticed how weird he looked, he had brown skin but his glasses were like oval or something from the round family; his ties were normally some kind of color that no one would use on a tie, like crimson with polka dots, or blue with fishes; he was wearing crimson with fishes how original. His dark green jacket was the thing that made me laugh it looked like it hadn’t been washed in years.
“Ellery why are you sleeping in class again” he glared at me once more, god he really knew how to piss me off. “Um…it’s obvious your teaching’s so interesting that I felt sleep wondering what you’ll teach us next” I said hoping that he’ll fall for it. He didn’t he grabbed my shirt and sent me out of class.
Passing through the white hallways I could see every single classroom, they all had small windows so you could see the class; I stopped in front of the long group of mirrors that were in the wall near the bathroom. I could see every detail instantly; I mean I know you can see everything about you in a mirror, unless you’re a vampire of course. But I never really paid attention to my reflection before. I really needed to get new clothe, I was still wearing the white shirt with the Starball on it, my jeans were like always blue; they’ve been like that since I was eight, my straight black hair was raised again, I kinda hated that but it was my trademark if you could call it that.
I just turned and kept walking out of the building. My school was really big it had a bout seventeen buildings; a huge campus with a quad in the middle, the cafeteria was next to me I could still smell the aroma of pancakes and fried eggs. I had to walk all the way to the main office that was in the first building, I’ve been going there a lot since I started High School. I stopped for a Pepsi in building six; I took my time it’s not like I had a lot of things to do. I walked up to one of the posters nearby. ‘Qualifying Trainer Exams tomorrow’ I turned to look away.
You see I live in the region of Kalith, people here go on Trainer journeys like in other regions; only difference is that we go when we’re fourteen, not just that but we have to pass this special test if we want to become a Trainer; in other words the retards have to stay home and wait till next year. Fortunately for me I had a plan to pass without studying, I simply had to go to the front office, the principal has the answers to the test so I could just distract him and steal the answers to the test; yeah that’s what I’ll do, I got a big grin in my face and then started walking to the front office.
“Hey Sharon” I said as I got into the office. It was actually small there were a few seat there, the staff’s rooms were all around it, it actually mad it look bigger. On the middle of the floor there was this huge desk, kind like the ones they have in the main room at the hospital. The woman sitting there had long blonde hair, she was wearing a dark blue skirt, a dark blue jacket with a white shirt and she had glasses that looked just like Mr. Medina’s.
“Hey Ellery, I see you got sent back again” she looked at me with an obvious kind of look. “Yeah, can I just go into the principal’s office, I wanna get this over whit” I grinned and put my hands together in hope. “Sorry but the principal is talking to professor Clain right now” she turned to look at her computer and then clicked a few keys. “Yep, their meeting will last till the end of school, after all the exams are tomorrow so they have to be ready for everything” she led me back to the door. “So I should just go back to class” I smiled; I couldn’t believe I was off the hook, only bad thing is that I won’t get to steal the answers, or would I.
School ended a few minutes after that I had to wait out of school. My best friend Juan and me always left school in our bikes, mine had flames all over kind like a flamethrower. His had bubbles all over it, you could say we were each other’s best friends and rivals. I didn’t saw Juan but I did saw my friend Alexa walking up to the gym. She had a long blonde hair, she was wearing her basketball shirt and shorts, they were white and red; she had blue eyes and spots on her face.
“Hey Ellery” she walked up to me bouncing her basketball on the floor. “He Lex, ready for practice?” I said getting the chains off my bike. She giggled and then kept bouncing her ball. “Yeah, I got practice every day, although if I pass the Q.T.E I won’t have to anymore” she laughed. She was right whoever passed had to go, or could go on their own Trainer journey which meant no school, although I think they send you lessons via your Pokedex. “Yeah, I hope I can pass it, I heard it’s really hard” I said catching her basketball after she threw it at me. “Yeah, you have to take exams on Pokemon species, attacks and language” she said and then we both started throwing the ball at each other over and over. “I don’t know why we have to do language, it’s not like we can understand Pokemon anyway, only a few people manage to pass that part” I said. Then I saw Juan come out.
Juan was a bit shorter than me, he had brown skin, he used to wear round glasses but then started using contacts, he had a blue sweatshirt, long black pants, and he was wearing aqua blue sneakers. “Hey man” I wave at him; he looked kinda sad though.
“Hey celery, I just got turn down by Kelly again” he sighed and looked down. “First, you know I hat that name” I frowned at him, a lot of people used that name caused it rhymed with mine. “Second, there’s no way in hell that she’ll ever say yes to you” I laughed a little bit but Alexa told me to save it for myself. Juan sighed again but smiled at me. “Yeah, she’s really cute, but doesn’t really accepts a lot of guys” he laughed. Alexa frowned a little bit. “I just think she’s a slut, she acts like one, she looks like one so she must be one” she nodded her head. “You always gotta pull the slut card” I chuckled giving her a nudge. “Well I should probably go to practice, see ya” she turned around and walked away. Then Juan and I took off.
We rode around the whole neighborhood; we lived in the town of Sparkle, it was calm most of the town was made of trees and houses, they were normal looking houses with two floors, they all had square roofs but they were different colors. “So tomorrow’s the Q.T.E, I’m pretty sure I’ll aced that exam easily” he smiled back at me, I couldn’t help but smile back; maybe I could just spent the whole night studying and that way I won’t be needing the option of going back to school and stealing the answers.
Juan saw his house, it was mostly white with two floors, it had a backyard with a wooden fence, the front had a pathway that led to the white door, and the roof was blue color. “Well that’s my house, see ya” he turned sideways and got through his backyard. I kept going; my house was about 500 meters farther from his.
I saw my house, it was kinda like Juan except that the fence was made of metal and the roof was red. I went through my backyard but as soon as I stopped my dad’s Scyther jumped me over. I jumped down from my bike and managed to dodge Scyther’s scythes. It smiled at me and then bowed. “Damn Cut, you’re gonna give me a heart attack one of this days” I said and then got up. You see my dad was a Trainer when he was young, he was dare I say the Kalith champion of 1973, and he traveled whit his Scyther who he called Cut. Cut walked up to the back door and opened it with its scythes. “Thanks” I said and got through the door that took me to the kitchen.
I walked through the kitchen almost crashing with the desk. After that I got the living room, it had a huge pearl white sofa and two red couches, it had a flat screen TV in front of them; there was also a bookshelf with books about the Kalith League and all of that. I saw my dad coming down from the second floor. He had raven black hair, with a few white hairs though after all he was fifty or something; he had a white tight shirt, he had square glasses and a small beard.
“Oh you’re back, so how was school?” he asked as he got down; this was our routine he asked me how school was, I said good then what I did in all my classes, then he’ll question me if I understood everything they thought me and we went on like that; you know being the son of an ex champion sucks when you don’t talk about anything like that. “It was good, the gave us a study guide for the Q.T.E” I got the study guide out and showed it to him. “Okay, then go study, I mean you do want to become a Trainer like your old man don’t you” he got out a bag of chips; I just listened to his advice and got up to my room.
I saw my mom when I got up, she had just finished getting my clothes out of my room. She had a brownish orange hair, she was wearing a blue shirt and dark blue shorts, she was wearing glasses just like my dad’s; I know I noticed how many people wear glasses in my life.
“Oh, hey baby, I just finished cleaning your room” she smiled at me softly. “Mom, I told you not to call me that” I whined; that’s the name they gave to the youngest in my family, yeah I’m the youngest feel free to say my life sucks. “I’m sorry, but I’m your mom and you have to live with that” she started walking down but then smiled back at me. My mom was the Kalith Grand Festival’s champion in 1972, she was a famous Coordinator in fact her rooms were all surrounded by old ribbons. I just got into my room. I had a big bed whit a red blanket and a red pillow, my closet was big enough for me to change in it, I had a black flat screen TV and my own computer.
I figured that I could just study and all that boring crap, after all I had nothing to do anyway. But first I got on my computer to do a little research. I got on MapQuest and printed a map of the Kalith region, and then I printed a calendar for all the special events including the Kalith region’s Pokemon league. “At least if I pass I’ll be all set up” I said and then put the papers on my desk.
I took the study guide and then started studying all the questions. After three long hours of studying I got down to eat dinner, my brother got into the house just when I got down. He was a tall man, he had jet black hair, he was wearing a black Metallica T-shirt, he had brown shorts and white sneakers.
“Hey little bro, how are things going along” he said as he got in. My brother was surely someone different, he was more like my half brother, mom was married to his dad and then got divorced, a few months after that she married my dad and five years after that I was born, now my brother turned then on 1991 and he became the Kalith league champion in ’92 so if you do your math well you’ll know that he’s twenty eight. “Not bad, I got my Q.T.E tomorrow” I shrugged; but my stomach started growling. I giggled slightly. “I’ll just go eat right now” I scratched my head and walked up to the kitchen with my brother.
“Oh George, well you could’ve call” my mom took out another plate and put it on the desk; her Purugly was helping her out. My dad and Cut were sitting on the desk looking at the Kalith league’s handbook; after all they wanted me to win the league just like they did, even if it meant doing killing someone, how lucky am I. I sat down. “Hey George so are you letting Tigeice out?” I asked drinking some of my stew. “Oh right I forgot” he took out a Pokeball from his pocket. ‘Go Tigeice” he threw the Pokeball on the floor and his Pokemon came out.
Then a huge tiger came out. It was about five meters taller than a jaguar; it had four legs with long ice claws, it was blue color and it had various icicles on its body, its face was blue too with long frozen whiskers, it had a small ice jewel on its forehead and long ice fangs. Its back had a long ice fin, and don’t even ask how it could wag its ice tail around.
Tigeice walked up to the floor and started eating its Pokemon food. “So brother, your journey is about to begin, hope you’re ready” he said taking a sip of his stew. I just nodded all this talk about exams was just making me nervous.
The next day I got up as fast as I could, I got down to the smell of pancakes and ate it out. “You better hurry to school, you don’t wanna be late” she said, but I didn’t heard half of what she said because I was already out of the house.
I saw Juan coming out of his house and I rode next to him. “Hey man, today’s the day” he said just as he saw me. “Yep, now we can finally become Trainers” I smiled at him; then we turned our heads to look at the street that lead to Sparkle Town High.
When we stopped Juan started to drool all over. Turns out he was drooling at Kelly; she had just got down from her mom’s car. She had a long black hair, she had brown eyes and a pale white skin, and she was wearing a pink top and a blue mini skirt. She was greeted by some of her friends and then got into school. I clicked my fingers so that he could get out of his trance. “Sorry” he chuckled and then walked off.
I walked into Mr. Medina’s classroom; he started handing out the exams after a few minutes. I just starred at the weird questions that they wrote for it. Seriously this people were idiots, they were asking obvious stuff, like which of this are bug Pokemon weak to, the answer was fire; the others were rock and electric.
After that they put different Pokemon to talk to us in a private room; we had to understand what they were saying; I could only managed to catch a few words like, hi, or are you listening to me idiot.
“Man I’m beat!” I yelled to Juan while we were walking out of the exam room. “I hear you man, that test was hard” he said looking out at the quad, it was crowded by kids all around. “What do you think its happening there?” I asked and we walked up to the quad.
“Don’t worry everyone, once I become the best I’ll tell everyone about the wonderful people in this school” I heard a very confident and elegant voice, when Juan and I managed to catch up we saw who was talking. It was Daniel, he was one of the most popular kids in school, his skin was the same color as Juan’s, he had a spiky black hair and black eyes, he was wearing a black tight shirt; kinda like George’s but in a different size. “Looks like Daniel is giving another speech, I heard he passed his Pokemon Language exam” Juan looked at me; he was right people always said that Daniel had a talent that helped him talk to Pokemon, I just ignored those rumors; it’s not like I care.
Alexa came walking to us. “Hey guys, the results are coming in soon” she said. She was wearing an aqua blue shirt with the words Hollister on it; she had a pair of green shorts. “Yeah, they should be giving the results right now” Juan nodded in agreement.
Then a man came in between the crowd and stood on one of the quad seats. He had white hair, he was wearing a lab coat with a yellow shirt under it, he had black pants and brown moccasins.
“Hello students I’m professor Clain and as you all know I came here to give you the results of the passing students, and take them to get their starters” he turned to look at all the students. “And now I’ll be announcing how many students passed” he looked at the results and frowned a little bit. “Well it looks like only five people managed to pass the test” he turned back to us.
“Wonder if we made it” Juan whispered. “Dude, only five people made it, you know how big the odds are” I whispered back. “Now here are the names of the five people” he started reading. “Firs we have Juan Alvarez” he looked straight at Juan; Juan looked back at me and then he walked up to Clain. “Then we got Alexa Burrows” he looked at Alexa the same way he looked at Juan. Alexa just smiled at me and stood next to Juan. “Then Daniel Rosa” Daniel quickly back up to him waving at the crowd; I just sighed.
“Now Jake Dodge” I saw a kid walking up to him, he had a long blonde hair that cover his left eye, he was wearing a red jacket and blue pants, he had pale white skin and blue eyes. “And last but not least” he paused for a moment; I prayed to god that I was the fifth one. “Kelly Mora” Kelly walked up next to Daniel. Then everyone started clapping; but for a moment I felt like my breath was going out, I can’t believe that after that studying I didn’t managed to make it.
But then Sharon walked up to professor Clain and started whispering in his ear, the professor just nodded at everything she said. “Okay people turns out we just got a six qualifier” he then turned his gaze at me. “Ellery Ferrer, you’re our six and last qualifier” again I felt like losing all my breath but in a different way. After a few minutes I managed to walk up to him and stood next to Jake.
Again everyone started clapping at us and we all just waved at them. “We made it can you believe it” I said to both Juana and Alexa, I was even sounding anxious now.
