Lucas Sovner stood in front of the docks, awaiting each of the participants and for the Terrain Masters to arrive. His Drapion, Shooter, and his Salamance, Sky, were next to him, eagerly awaiting the chance to go all out.A Tourney Staff Delibird sat next to him as well, awaiting his expected task.
He took a look downward at his own Poke Gauntlet, and then noticed the Ferry that was to carry the Trainers and Terrain Masters approaching from the horizon. He then nodded to the Delibird, who flew over towards the boat.
The Delibird flew above the ship, dropping a package containing a map
and the Poke Gauntlet with the design of their choice into the arms and laps of the Trainers and Terrain Masters on the Ferry.
Lucas smiled, and thought to himself "Now, it will all begin"
Haley had been sitting in a chair on the Ferry when a Delibird flew overhead and dropped a package into her lap. She opened it, as Lauren, her Lopunny, watched curiously.
She found the map, and studied it for a moment, before she put it in her pocket and then carefully lifted the Gauntlet out of the package. She smiled when she saw that it was a light blue color with white detailing, just as she had requested. She put the Gauntlet on, and it locked in, scanning her fingerprints as it did so.
She then walked to the front of the boat, and released Guard to accompany Lauren. She then said to them "There's our new chalenge" as she stared at the spectacle of an island in front of her.
The Hitmonlee said nothing, as it wondered what it would be battling, and Lauren stared at the island with curiosity, wondering who she would meet there.
