The students at Cherrilli Academy are just like the kids at any other school. They have their friends, enemies, boyfriends and girlfriends, and tons of drama, but they are Pokemon trainers! Each trainer is a member of a team that represents a Pokemon region. The teams compete against each other for the grand prize at the end of the semester. Good luck!

Zoey smiled. Yeah, Pokemon Psychology would be very useful for this kind of situation. Too bad class hadn't started yet. She nodded at Gary's words. "That sounds like a good plan." She became curious at his mention of special Pokemon food. That sounded interesting. Maybe they would learn something like that in Breeding 101. Then she thought of something. "Do you remember meeting someone named Nate?" she asked him. "I believe he said he wanted to become a Pokemon breeder." She shrugged. "Maybe you could ask him for advice. He seemed to make good Pokemon food." She smiled as she remembered how he had fed that little Turtwig and how he had loved the food. Normally, she didn't remember specific events like that, but that particular lunch had been memorable in more than one way. "Or I suppose Breeding 101 will help with that." Whichever way, she hoped he would succeed in getting his two Pokemon working together.

Meowthers was happy when the other two Pokemon agreed to play something. He just loved making new friends! As long as their trainers were chatting, they might as well try to have some fun together. Now, what to play? He tried to think back to all the game he knew. He looked around the park for inspiration. It seemed like a good place to explore. Then he got an idea. <How about hide and seek?> It would help them get to know the area better, and it would be fun.
She was right. Breeding 101 would probably be a good class to learn from. He had never been great at that kind of stuff, but he was willing to try if it would help his Pokemon. He tried to think back to remember Nate. He thought he had had a couple of classes with him. "Yeah, I think I know him. I don't know which team he's on now." It would not be that hard to find him though, right? The school was not that big. If he knew which region Nate was from it could help, but he was drawing a blank. Everything was so different with the teams, in a god way. He could not wait until the tournament at the end of the semester. He hoped to win it! "Say, are you in Team Kanto too?" He thought he had seen her around the residence hall, but he was not sure.
<Hide and seek sounds good,> Skipper said. <I can be IT.>
June nodded her tiny head slowly. <Ok.> She glanced at Meowthers. <We have to find a place to hide, right?>

Meowthers was happy when the other two agreed to play hide and seek. He nodded when Skipper agreed to be IT. <Ok. Cover your eyes and count to 60.> That would be about a minute, which seemed like enough time for the small bug Pokemon to scurry somewhere. He glanced at June and smiled. <Then we go and find a place to hide. We stay there until he finds us.> He swished his tail back and forth happily. He could not wait to begin!

Zoey wasn't sure which team Nate was on either. Maybe he would bump into him at class or even the cafeteria. She hoped he would be able to find him sometime or at least learn something from Breeding 101 that would be helpful for his situation. She also hoped her suggestion worked. If the Farfetch'd learned to work with June, then he wouldn't want to eat her anymore, right? Maybe they could even become good friends. She brightened at Gary's question. "Yep," she said with a smile. He was in Team Kanto like her? That was great. It was good to know who her teammates were. So far, she hadn't met many. She did like the idea of the teams, though; it created small families that cared about each other.
"Great," Gary said. He was looking forward to meeting the rest of their teammates. Maybe they could organize some sort of event so that they could all get to know each other. They all needed a fun chance to hang out. If they knew each other's strengths and weaknesses, they could help each other become stronger so that their team could win in the end. He looked over at the Pokemon to see what they were up to. "It's good to see them getting along." He was glad to see his Joltik more at ease now that she as with some friendly Pokemon. Maybe there was hope for her after all.
<Alright,> June said. She thought she understood. She gazed around at the park to get a lay of the land before turning to Skipper. <You can start counting now.> She hoped this would be fun. She did like playing games with friends.
Skipper grinned and nodded. <Ok.> He covered his eyes with his hands and began to count. <One, two, three...>

Zoey looked down at the Pokemon at Gary's words. It looked like they were playing a game. From looking at how Skipper was covering his eyes and saying something continuously, she guessed they were playing hide and seek. That was a fun game to play. "Yeah. Your Joltik will be just fine," she said, smiling at the Pokemon. If you had good friends to count on, you could get through anything, even a potentially dangerous situation. She really hoped everything would be fine in the end with that Farfetch'd. As long as June had supportive and protective friends she felt comfortable with, though, it would be fine. Getting along with the Farfetch'd would just be an added bonus. Seeing how she seemed to be better than when she had first seen her, she saw progress and hope.

When Skipper began to count, Meowthers bounded away on all fours. He stopped when he was in the middle of the park, and he looked around for a good hiding spot. He decided to choose the bush across the way. He tread lightly so that the Squirtle could not hear his pawsteps. Then he jumped over the bush and settled down behind it. He hoped he was well-hidden.
Gary nodded. "Right." Perhaps there was a lesson to learn from this about the correct method to catch Pokemon. He had been a bit too eager back in the forest. He would make sure to do better in the future. He watched the three Pokemon for a minute before looking back at Zoey. He could not remember much about her, and he thought it would be good to know about his teammates. Plus, she seemed pretty nice. "What classes are you taking? Do you know what you want to do when you graduate?" He knew some students came in with a set plan while others were there to try out new things and attempt to figure out their path in life. Gary was somewhere in the middle. He had two options before him, and he did not know which he should choose.
Skipper continued to count.
June walked along the grass, looking for a place to hide. Then she saw a large rock. Luckily, she was small and nimble enough to squeeze under it. Now she waited.

Zoey continued to observe the Pokemon. They looked like they were having fun, and she was glad. She looked back at Gary when he spoke. She had to think back to the classes she had signed up for; classes had only begun to start a short while ago. "I'm taking Pokemon Psychology, Healing and Potions, Pokemon Philosophy, and..." She paused. Oh, right. "And Battling Techniques. They're all level one, except Healing and Potions is level two." She really enjoyed that class. It was fun and fascinating to learn. What did she want to do when she graduated? That was always a tough question for some people. Nothing was really set in stone for her, but she did have an idea. "I want to be a Pokemon healer. I love to help Pokemon in any way I can. Though, I also enjoy observing them and learning about how they act and why. I think that in order to really help a Pokemon in any situation, you have to understand them." That was something she hoped to be able to do through her classes here at Cherilli as well as just going out and being around Pokemon herself.
The classes she listed sounded interesting. He was taking two of them himself, and he wondered if she would be in one of his classes. Her answer to his second question caught his attention. He had never met anyone who wanted to be a Pokemon healer, but it was a good and needed profession. It was great that there were people compassionate enough to devote their lives to caring for other people's Pokemon. He could relate more to the second thing she said, though. "So, you might want to pursue Pokemon research?" That sounded like what she was describing. "I might want to do that as well. I'm glad I have a grandfather who's Pokemon researcher. Once I graduate, he should be able to help me decide if that is the path I want to take." Speaking of which, he should call him soon to tell him how he was doing. Perhaps he could convince him to come visit the academy. There were bound to be plenty of students who would love to meet him.
Skipper finished counting and uncovered his eyes. He looked around, listening for signs of movement. He decide to walk to the middle of the park for a better view.

Zoey looked thoughtful. She hadn't heard much about Pokemon Research. All she really knew career-wise was a trainer who battled, hoping to become a Pokemon Master; a Pokemon Healer; and a Pokemon Breeder. "Maybe. I don't really know a lot about Pokemon researching, though." She remembered that his grandfather was a Pokemon Researcher, which was pretty cool. It was good to have someone in your family who did something you might be interested in; it gave you a lot of information and help. "That's good. Are you deciding between two things or are you just not sure you want to become a Pokemon Researcher?" she asked. That was a good thing about going to this school. You learned and grew a lot, which helped give you a better idea of where to go after graduation. Plus, you had a bunch of time before graduation, which was pretty much when you had to decide. Even if you did choose one path, though, you could always change if you decided it wasn't what you really wanted.
Hmm... She did not know much about Pokemon researching? Perhaps he could help her out with that sometime. They really should offer a class on it. He knew a lot from observing his grandfather. It really was interesting work, and it was much needed. "I'm also considering following my childhood dream of becoming a Pokemon master," he said. He could remember how intent he had been at fulfilling that dream. At the time, he did not think that could ever change. "I only became interested in Pokemon research recently. I did a lot of soul-searching, and I discovered that it is something I love." He shrugged. he would figure out his dilemma eventually. He had time. For now, he was enjoying what he could learn and experience at school.
Skipper thought he saw something move in the bushes, though it could have been the wind. He ran over there on all fours. Then he carefully parted the bushes and peered over. He gasped when he saw Meowthers. <I found you!>

Meowthers heard Skipper coming his way, so he tried to be as quiet as possible. He closed his eyes as if that would help him not be spotted. He held his breath when the bushes rustled. Then Skipper shouted at him! The Meowth opened his eyes and frowned. <Aw. Good job.> He hopped out of the bushes so he could watch Skipper look for the Joltik. If she could not be found, she would win!
