(The sign ups are still open!)
A Silph Co. blimp floats overhead as spectators eagerly await the start of the race. There is a long line drawn in the sand that participants patiently wait behind. The area selected for the starting line is deep in the heart of Fuschia city, surronded by impressive looking buildings on either side.
Professor Juniper stands next to a well-dressed Silph spokesperson, just in front of the racers. Juniper pulls out a microphone to speak: "Helloooo trainers! I hope to see you all in Unova at the top of those huge stairs! (she grins) Please try and remember that there is more to this race than being the 1st one to cross the finish line!"
(As if she can sense the tension in the air, Professor Juniper holds up a large green flag)
"On your marks, get set, and GO!" (she waves the flag) The race had begun!!
