    Day 0: Morning: Island Two

    Two people were sitting in the darkness waiting for any updates from their co-workers. They could hear the waterfall crashing down as they both stared at each other. One was a middle aged man with short black spiky hair and the other was a platinum blonde younger woman. "I didn't know that anyone lived here especially an old woman who taught awesome moves" the woman said awkwardly. "Enough Clair. We are waiting for any information from Skyla and Roark. There's a couple that could challenge us and it is going to be interesting to see who we can get but that's what I have heard from Flannery but the child of well a former legend is going to be around" Koga was the man sitting on the chair. "I know but look I mean we have those two to watch everything and Flan to plan and then we will have all the power of the world"

    Day 0: Morning: Island One

    "Okay so we have 12 types and 6 Islands. So we can use at least 2 per except for Island one with one" Skyla wrote down while Roark was looking at the charts. "Expect the planes and boats to land soon" Skyla smiled as she finished off the list "Am I awesome or am I awesome. So we got Water and Ground on Island one, Island Three has Bug and Grass, Psychic and Ghost for Island 4, Island 5 with Ice and Dark, Island 6 with Fighting and Steel and Island 7 with Normal and Electric here. Done and done" Skyla happily remarked but Roark looked at it. "Did you take into consideration with ordination and tests and that battling isn't the only thing?"

    "Oh right...." Skyla sighed ripping up the paper.

    "They should be coming soon. Flannery is greeting the competitors at the Center"

    Junine walked into the center to see a woman with red hair. "Hello. Is this where we meet for the gym leader competition?"

    Jacob walked into the center, dragging his feet slightly. So I do get seasick. The more you know. he thought.

    Flannery was too busy looking at her nails. "Gosh I'm so pretty" she sang to herself until a girl walked up to her. The girl walked up to her and asked a question, "Huh...oh yeah, just go over there" Flannery pointed for a place for all the competitors from around the globe, to mingle with each other. "You can see Nurse Joy there as well" Flannery smiled "Hello Nurse Joy" the red haired Elite 5 member waved. "I should really hold a sign...oh wait I have one" she looked at the sign saying something about waiting for further instructions.

    Junine walked over to the designated place and waited for further instructions. Looking around to see who looked strong. The only one who caught her interest was a boy who seemed seasick.

    Lia tried to walk normally as she exited the boat, but her ankles wobbled slightly. She couldn't stand boats. There was too much movement for her to be comfortable. Flying on top of her hovering Magnezone was a thousand times better than this inferior form of transportation. The thought of her Pokémon made her feel guilty. Metagross was much too big to be able to walk around on deck, so the poor Pokémon was forced to stay inside its Pokéball for the whole journey. Lia frowned. She'd make it up to Metagross, somehow.

    With a deep breath, Lia trudged forward purposefully, trying not to look like she was fighting the urge to vomit. Seasickness was not fun. But there wasn't any room for error. She had to look tough, sound tough, be tough to be the new Gym Leader. This is what all of her efforts had culminated to.

    Lia instantly recognized Flannery, the fire-type leader. Who couldn't recognize her? She was the most famous fire-type trainer of them all. Lia set her jaw and walked up to her.

    "Hello, Flannery?" Lia stuck out her hand for a handshake, "It's a pleasure to meet you. Where do we go from here?"

    Calvin walked into the Center, looking around to see what was going on. He noticed a group of what seemed like fellow competitors off to one side, and a girl who looked seasick who seemed to be asking for directions. After a moment of thought, he started walking toward the small group when he felt the air grow cold. He smiled, and turned to see a girl who was dressed somewhat like a ninja and gave off scary vibes... or at least, scary to anyone who'd never met her. "Glad you could make it, Raven." He said, smirking.

    "Likewise. I would've been disappointed if my only motivation for being here wasn't here." Raven said, lightly punching him in the shoulder. She then pulled him over to the group and began a hushed conversation with him. "Listen, these guys may not all look it, but they're Gym Leaders just like us. And while they don't all look strong, they wouldn't have gotten the job for no reason, so we need to watch our backs. Especially you. Got it?"

    "Raven, you know me well enough to know that I'm not gonna let anyone catch me off guard." Calvin whispered confidently. "Anyway, I think it's best that we watch these guys, and learn more about 'em."

    "Now you're speaking my language." Raven chuckled quietly. "After all, knowing your opponent is the quickest path to victory."

    Jack walked into the center with his same indifferent expression. He didn't find any of this exciting, and just wanted to hurry and get to where they were supposed to be. Jack looked around, waiting for instructions on what to do next.

    Jacob came back to earth after having spaced out. "I'm here for the competition too." he mumbled before taking a seat where the others were. He offered a handshake to another trainer who looked seasick, thinking, next time, we fly.

    OOC: Wrong markup. DERP.

    The numbers grew and grew as more people entered the waiting area. "Alrighty then" Flannery muttered to herself "We still have a lot to go before we can start this shindig. I should tell them about the food"

    Flannery picked up a loudspeaker and yelled out "Guys there are food and drinks you know, so like chow down and drink up"

    Junine turned her attention to Flannery as she heard her speak, hoping for it to be important. This only ended up with her being disappointed as it was something she had already deduced from studying her surroundings. Emerald her snivy, yawned from her shoulder before jumping down into her arms and sleeping. "Guess you're bored," she said to him Waiting not feeling like eating.

    AC entered the Center and saw people eating, while a red haired woman was supervising them. He approached the woman. "Hello," he said, "I'm here for the gym leader challenge."

    Flannery was bombarded with questions such as the location of the competition, she sighed pointing at the sign explaining everything. She was still waiting until the right amount was there but still she was waiting for more and more people to arrive. "This is going to be so long" she muttered to herself. There was still a lot of work to be done though especially with the events that were supposed to be planned.

    Ariana Larrson

    A woman with beautiful chestnut brown hair, silky smooth and styled as a longish bob. She has beautiful light brown eyes and she wears a decently subtle amount of makeup with her long lashes, brown eye shadow as well as lipstick (lightish brown). She has flawless skin and likes to wear very nice clothes. Ariana's outfit will be black knee high boots with a purple jacket blouse with a black belt around her waist. She was on her way to the Islands waiting to find out what happened to her mother who was formerly a highly ranked trainer, famous all around the world but Ariana was here to get as far as she can to discover the whereabouts of her mother.

    She hired her own boat and a sailor to help her. "Where to miss?" he asked with a thick Jamaican accent. "Towards Island One...I need to properly put on a wig" she picked up a light blonde hair mirroring her mother's hairstyle, long and wavy to put on her hair. "Why are you wearing a wig miss?" the sailor asked. Ariana smiled "They know who I am, so much so that I had to fake my own name just to get in. Ariana such a pretty name though" She could see the horizon ahead where the competition was supposed to be located in.

    "I will avenge you, mother"

    Feeling defeated, Lia left Flannery alone as the leader was bombarded by more, important questions. This was already a mess. But, she thought, at least there was food. Her Pokémon were probably starving.

    "Chow time, guys!" she said softly as she released all of her Pokémon. Empoleon, Metagross, Excadrill, and Magnezone looked around blearily as they tried to orient themselves after such a long trip. "It's the Sevii Islands, guys. We've never been here before. We'll go exploring soon. There's food over there." Lia pointed. The group trudged away, the ground shaking from their weight. Lia noticed a boy seemed to be trying to ask Flannery a question, but the leader was still busy. She strode over to him, and gave him a tap on he shoulder.

    "I don't think it's worth it. I was waiting for ages," she whispered, "Just muddle around here and eat, or something, for a while, and they'll tell us what to do next.

    "Psst, look at that one. She's a steel specialist." Calvin whispered hushedly to Raven, watching as Lia released her Pokémon.

    "Indeed. She could be difficult. But strategies could be made to get around it." Raven whispered. "We should find a way to feed our Pokémon in private. I don't wanna let them see what I've got... yet."

    "Agreed. We could feed them outside." Calvin whispered. "But I'd rather wait 'til the food activity dies down a little."
