Rupi, the Great Fairy
Needing a break from the rather dull life as a fairy, Rupi began looking for an adventure of her own. The fierce Pax Pokemon League proved energetic enough to get her attention and for a while, she watched. The courage to say challenge me, the wisdom to know what moved to use and when, and the strength to pull through the battle standing victor. The determination motivated Rupi not only to better herself, but to maybe instill those characteristics into others. For a year, she trained with her friends to have the same virtues as the league – and a little blond boy in a green tunic she once knew – so that maybe, she could experience the excitement of competition. Dazzle Rupi to earn yourself the Sparkle Badge!
