Yesterday, the self-appointed Karate King Kiyo vowed that this year his Fighting Dojo would take back its place as the official gym of Saffron City from “that witch Sabrina and her meddlesome underlings!” ¬†Four years ago, the young girl had completely overpowered every member of the dojo single-handedly, culminating in a pitiful battle with Kiyo in which his Pokemon were unable to land a single blow on Sabrina’s mighty Alakazam. ¬†Now, with gym leader applications beginning earnestly, not only have there been young upstarts across the Kanto region, but also familiar faces such as Kiyo and the members of the Yas and Kas Gyms of Dark City.
For the last four years, the Fighting Dojo and Sabrina’s Gym have stood side-by-side, both accepting challengers and attracting different types of trainers. ¬†But if Kiyo’s disparaging remarks have been any indication, this harmony may not last. ¬†When asked for comment, Saffron’s current Gym Leader stated, “I had no idea Kiyo was so bitter after all these years. ¬†I thought that we were on better terms.” ¬†Sabrina’s public response to Kiyo’s comments have been few and far-between, perhaps illustrating the Gym Leader’s reluctance to stoop to such levels of mudslinging.
Saffron’s citizens however are already taking sides, and while most support the current Gym Leader, Kiyo is attracting attention from many of Saffron’s older citizens who remember how things were before Sabrina won the gym. ¬†An employee of the Silph Company, who wished to remain anonymous, had this to say, “Sabrina has been fulfilling her duties as a Gym Leader, but many of us want things to be the way they used to be, especially given the growing crime rate. ¬†The Fighting Dojo would be much more active in keeping the city of Saffron safe than our Sabrina’s Gym.”
This news is undercut slightly by the discovery that the Fighting Dojo had been illegally selling Fighting Pokemon not only to challengers, but to several Biker gangs across the region. ¬†Investigations into this matter will continue into the following weeks, but Kiyo is confident that he will get to battle Sabrina again, “The Fighting Dojo will reclaim its place in the sun this year, no matter what dirty tricks that witch tries.”
