"Oh no, I'm late!" Marina quickly ran as fast as her legs could carry her to the building where Isshu Academy Enterance Exams would be held. Isshu Academy was a brand new boarding school, every year they would select a handful of child prodigies and slowly lower the numbers until at least fifty remained. From there, the students had to take the exam. Those who failed, went home. But those who passed, got to enter the new academy.
Marina quickly ran into the building and saw a large arena with a student filling each booth.
Professor Spencer Delisle addressed the group. "Attention students! The official Isshu Academy exam will begin now! Here is how its going to work: you will all be paired up with another student to battle them. Whoever wins, enters the academy." Professor Spencer adjusted his glasses. "But the loser, shall walk away in shame. May the best student win."
A large screen above the students displayed their pictures each paired up with someone elses. Everyone quickly rushed to pair up. Marina looked for her picture on the screen and saw that she was paired up with a boy named Kyron Orr.
Marina walked into a small arena and faced Kyron.
Kyron glared at her and said "Better luck next time, amateur!" Kyron then proceded to send out a Vileplume.
"We'll see." Marina replied and sent out her beloved partner Poliwhirl, which she nicknamed Blue.
