More than Seven Hundred years ago one of the very first Pokémon Academies was founded, the Snowpoint College. It was made by a Champion after an epidemic had wiped out half the Pokémon population and many Pokémon Knights (what we now call Trainers) had no Pokémon. He opened the Academy in the middle of the quiet Snowpoint city and it offered free education to the masses. The years went by and gradually fee paying members entered the community up to a point where only a small hard core of "scholars" remained being given free education. There are Seven Houses in all
There are many titles withing houses. For instance, four boys and four girls in the top year of each house become Prefects with individual titles for each house ( etc Simisear in Flareon, Electivire in Jolteon) Pupils work hard for these titles and have to earn them.
The College is also famous for its sports. The main sports played are:
For the boys: Football in the First Term, Rugby in the Second Term and Cricket in the Third Term
For the girls: Netball in the First Term, Lacrosse and Hockey in the Second Term and Rounders in the Third Term
Other sports are available and the only compulsory sport is on Wednesdays when the first years have to play the major sport in a tournament.
Everyone enters the College in their first year (aged 13) the school goes up until University (aged 18). The school gives you a Pokémon and you are only allowed to use that one until further notice. It knows all of its level-up moves
