A great airship floated above the Orange Archipelago. Hundreds of feet above the ocean, it was full of students bound for Aura Academy. The sun had risen a couple hours ago, and many of the students were still sleeping.
Attention, all passengers. We're nearing Lemon Island, and will arrive in a few hours. Please prepare your things to land. As the voice rang out over the PA system, Josh stirred in his bed. He had just left home yesterday, and it took him a moment to remember where he was. The Altaria, Aura Academy's airship. The Academy was well-funded, Josh could see. The previous night, after getting on board, the students had been treated to a lavish meal. The ship itself, in addition to the fact that it was an airship, was luxuriously decorated, with well-furnished dorms. Apparently, the Pokemon League sometimes used it for events.
Josh sat up in bed and started getting dressed, looking out the window. He could see all the islands spread out beneath them. He remembered seeing a map. Indeed, far away, he could see Lemon Island, where they'd be staying the next year. Josh slipped on his denim jacket over his shirt, which had a picture of an orange circle with three red stars on it. Then he headed out of his room, to breakfast. He passed the spa, the ornate carpet soft beneath his shoes.
The ballroom already had a fair number of students in it. Several circular tables were dotted across the room, many of them already full. Food was served buffet-style, and Josh headed to get some pancakes. As he did so, he heard another student talking.
"Kid's loaded, I bet he has a ton of cash on him." He heard a young man talking to his friends. Josh judged him to be a second year. The guy had slitted eyes, and a forked tongue. A gijinka, probably. Josh didn't like to eavesdrop, so he finished getting his food, and then scanned the room for a place to sit. He was distracted by the huge window that took up part of the wall, showing a gorgeous view of the sea below.

The Altaria is a big ship. Say that whatever facilities you like are on it. You can have your character enjoy breakfast, or do something else. Also, I need a co-GM. If anyone is interested, contact me.))
