Deliverance: A group involved in many crimes in the region, its motives are unknown. It has been around for at least fifteen years but still very little is known of it.

Professional Pokémon League: Is the other league in the region, it is less popular as it is only open to people who reach the last eight of any major tournament, it still has quite a fan base though. It split off from the official Pokémon League a few years before the Amateur Pokémon League did.

A break down of money in this RP
This is intended to be a rough guide to the prices of things in the region. I will be using $ as the regions currency but you can consider it short for Pokédollar.
All trainers in the region can expect to have at least a few essentials that they would use in their everyday life. A mobile phone for example, anything else that you buy before your journey won't be factored into the money system. When you sign up tell me how long you have been saving, up to a year and what you have been doing, in your history section, and I'll give you a sum of money to start with. By the way not everyone will be equal.
Your trainer licence is the first concern, which costs $100 for the year but includes 100 box spaces and free health care at public Pokécenters. Your first Pokémon will likely cost $100 - $5,000 depending on the rarity of the Pokémon and other factors if you buy it, however you can adopt a Pokémon for a small donation of around $20 to any of the Pokémon rescue charities in the region.
Next is feeding yourself and your Pokémon. Lets say that the absolute minimum for your own food is $5/day but it could be much more. If you eat at restaurants etc. (ignoring takeaway) then a minimum $30/day should cover your food. Feeding your Pokémon should be about $2/Pokémon/day for up to the six Pokémon in your team.
Stuff like potions and Pokéballs would vary. Here you can just say you stock up on them each time you reach a city and say it cost you about $25. For other items just add them on to the bill, but ask me about a price first.
Events that you may attend will come up when we reach them. If you reach a town and want to get a temporary job then just let me know. For battles I will let you stake whatever you like but think about it how much money you stake will depend on how much you have. Ten percent of your money should be the upper limit on what your character stakes unless they are being extremely foolish and have permission from me. You should lose as well as win and anyone I think is abusing the system I will punish.
