The PokéGames (A Pokémon/Hunger Games Crosso...
They say that the Pokémon are dangerous. Too dangerous to even be controlled by Trainers. But Bethany Jennings doesn't believe them.
Many years after the days of Champion Red, the regions were at war for two bloody, destructive years. The regions were then united into a new country under Master Steele. To prevent future wars, Master Steele declared Pokemon too dangerous of weapons to be controlled by the general population.
Trainers were required to hand in their Pokemon, and all wilderness areas were fenced off. The only exceptions to the new laws were licensed police officers, who were allowed one Pokemon each.
A trainer uprising occurred greater than the war that had just ended. All rebel trainers were killed by their own government and the rebellion was crushed.
Ten years after the law banning Pokemon was passed, there was a new law. To discourage the people of the United Regions from handling Pokemon, and to prevent further uprisings by displaying the government’s absolute power, Master Steele created the Games.
Every year, each region was to offer a boy and a girl aged 12 to 18 as tributes into the Games. The tributes were then to be placed into an arena with 60 Pokeballs containing untrained Pokemon, and left to fight to the death. The last tribute left standing was to be declared as winner, and they, their family, and their region were to be showered with riches.
The day of the reapings for the third Games, Hayley and Bethany Jennings get caught breaking the law. Their choice for punishment is simple: jail time, or getting their name put into the reaping so many times that getting chosen was nearly inevitable. They each see only one viable option, and so the cousins are separated--perhaps for life.
Now, Bethany must rely on her intelligence, charm, and knowledge of Pokemon gained from her Dad’s old journals, to survive. Thrown into a game where everything is against her, can she manage to defy the odds and come out of the arena alive?
