Brian stayed at my parents’ house on Sunday. I got up early to meet with Erika at the gym.
Sundays were reserved for a private event that only a few members of our gym knew about. While senior and junior members alike spread rumors about who might know or what goes on, nothing was ever clear on what happens on Sundays. What is clear, however, is that it is the one day out of the week that only members who know are allowed to enter the gym and no challengers are allowed to compete for the Rainbow badge either. Now, I would get to witness such a unique occasion in the life of gym leader Erika.
Friday is the day reserved for senior members of the Celadon City Gym to battle and train their pokémon. I brought Brian along with me to the gym because I felt that it was a good opportunity for him to train with his Emolga. As Brian and Emolga had practice battles with the other girls, I was pulled aside to meet with the gym leader privately.
Having conquered all of the kingdoms in the southern peninsula, our campaign turns its focus to the north. Up there is the kingdom of Violight, bordering Greenleaf, and our first obstacle to unite the remaining western territories.
