A government that might not have the well-being of the people in their interests. Now that is a setting you could really play with.

In fact if I hand't just started a new rp that would've been a setting I could dive nose-first into. Especially playing with the scars of the people and the distrust for foreigners that would be triggered, it would make for a pretty dark roleplay.

But maybe I've just been reading too many war books.
That is actually a pretty great idea. But like drunk said, it wouldn't make too much sense for a bunch of people (teenagers no less) to go out and travel the world, and I don't see why their parents would let them.
But if we kept the large sum of prize money thing, I can totally see why they would go out. And perhaps being a Pokemon Champion would give you some amount of say in the government? Either way, we would then need to come up with a reason for the governments to be doing this. . .

@drunk ¬_¬ - I just see anything involving Arceus to be cliche for some reason, lol. But if you manage to make it original enough . . . then I could reconsider that, lol.
A burdened heart sinks into the ground
A veil falls away without a sound
Not day nor night, wrong nor right
For truth and peace you fight
Sing with me a song of silence and blood
The rain falls, but can't wash away the mud
Within my ancient heart dwells madness and pride
Can no one hear my cry

Embrace the dark you call a home,
Gaze upon an empty, white throne
A legacy of lies,
A familiar disguise
Sing with me a song of conquest and fate
The black pillar cracks beneath its weight
Night breaks through the day, hard as a stone
Lost in thoughts all alone
In the white light, a hand reaches through
A double-edged blade cuts your heart in two
Waking dreams fade away,
Embrace the brand-new day
Sing with me a song of birthrights and love
The light scatters to the sky above
Dawn breaks through the gloom, white as a bone
Lost in thoughts all alone

In endless dreams, countless realms collide
Hope falls only to rise like the changing tide
But all dreams come to an end,
Just whispers on the wind
Sing with me one last time, for light's sacrifice,
Endless dawn came but not without a price,
Lost in the waves there glimmers, a pale blue stone.
I think of you, all alone
