clubs categorized as 'intramural teams' are ones that created for the purpose of recreationally competing against other students within the academy. these are student run organizations that have no impact on academic performance, though they may occasionally compete with opposing universities if the opportunity should arise. further information about these clubs can be found within including existing clubs and how to join as members or apply as officers.

type-based clubs are no longer "university approved" student organizations, however that has not stopped their activity. these clubs are often run by "well off individuals" and tend to be largely competitive with each other. they center around a certain type or combination of two types and usually require that you posses a pokemon of that type to join. further information about these clubs can be found within including existing clubs and how to join as members or apply as officers.

there are a number of clubs categorized as "social clubs" that tends to be a catch-all term for non-competitive clubs that are officially recognized by the academy. these clubs typically center around community service or shared hobbies/interests of the student. there are constantly new social clubs being created by passionate students interesting in connecting with likeminded individuals. further information regarding existing clubs and how to join or become an officer can be found within the board.

the center is open to anyone interested, however faculty and students studying within the field of "selection" or involved in a breeding club are given priority and special treatment. there are particular rules that must be abided by when using the breeding center that are displayed on a little sign sitting prettily on the front desk. the facility includes both indoor and outdoor areas as well as both incubation and nesting rooms to suit whichever preference you may have.

smack dab in the center of campus sits a statue of a frail old man with a faded plaque that reads "hugh mccrain". situated around the statue in an eccentric pattern are the variably sized and colored buildings of the university commons. bridging the gaps between buildings are carefully manicured lawns and winding sidewalks densely shaded by age-old maple trees. though students are encouraged to let their pokemon roam free and unwind in the crisp, clean air, it is cautioned that the pokemon that assist in grounds-keeping do not approve of blemishes inflicted upon their precise work.

close to the university commons sits a proud, extravagant building- bone white in color. large pillars line the building's facade, mirroring jet black doors nearly wide as they are tall. within the doors is a black and white tiled floor and spotless interior lined with black shelving that hold meticulously color-coded books. at the top of two monochrome staircases is an immense portrait of the founder and his seven colorful pokemon. silence is a requirement, not a request, and though pokemon are encouraged in many areas of campus, this is not one- too much of a hazard, the librarian claims.

the combat arena is a commonly frequented place filled not only with the well known main arena, but also various spaces students can sign up for to use for training. these rooms are equipped with dummies, simulators, exercise machinery, and the like. the main arena is used both for class and club competition and, on occasion, can be reserved for students to use when unoccupied. the arena is lined with seating in the form of bleachers, and is set up for broadcast throughout the school in the event that large intramural matches occur.

within the hall are three stages: two "practice" and one "main" stage. the main stage has expansive theatre seating, intricate lighting, and is set up for broadcast throughout the school. unfortunately, this stage can only be used by class or clubs that rent it out for their various activities and competitions. the practice stages can be signed up for by students at any time during the day and even on weekends. they also include audience seating, however there are only a couple of rows available. these stages are much smaller with far simpler lighting and customization.

what is a school without its classrooms? as far as schools go, there is nothing particularly remarkable about kleur's learning spaces... unless you consider the high ceilings and wide windows, eco-friendly automatic lights, whiteboard walls, and only the latest technology. there are classrooms to accommodate any group size: from a handful to a hundred or more. there are conference style classrooms for more conversational learning, bleacher seating that can be pushed in to make room for competition demonstrations- if you can think it, it exists. after all, where else do you think all that tuition money was going?

rainbow lake is best known for its reflective properties that perfectly mirror the sky and trees around it. those on the shore can enjoy its gentle lapping waves that reach the shore, as well as the dense forestry that surrounds it. a dark, wooden dock extends out just long enough for the water to get deep. a little ways off from the dock sits a small lighthouse that acts as a beacon to those stranded on the other side of the lake. across the way sits a little abandoned shack that has started to become taken over by the forest. among the activities commonly seen here along the lake are fishing, camping, cookouts, and swimming.

seated very conveniently just a couple blocks off of campus, the diy pokewash is a popular place to take your pokemon for some relaxation and a good ol' scrub. metal tubs with roll-out ramps, bins of supplies, and easy to use sprayers are open to use for a small fee. there are even accessory stations for those into dressing up their pokemon companions. though it is advised that perhaps not all pokemon be given a good soaking, it never hurts to give them a good cleaning with a sudsy rag or a thorough brushing. after all, even pokemon can enjoy a good pampering.

upon first seeing the graveyard, many might mistake it for a pleasant park. in the fall, the lot is decorated with colorful trees that line the neatly-laid stone path that winds throughout. the tombstones that dot the property are well-kept, as are the wrought iron fences that surround it. however, at night very little light filters through the thick branches of the trees and no lampposts exist anywhere within. the graveyard is largely silent except for the sound of the branches rubbing against each other. it is rumored that spirits wander at night and unlucky trespassers may be taunted by a very mischievous ghost type.

since they are located on campus, it's impossible to get any living situation closer to class... besides, perhaps, stowing away in the classroom itself. though convenient for some, their location restricts the size of the rooms and offers very little privacy. the dorms are also despairingly far from civilization as there are no stores on campus and the city is a good five miles out. however, those looking for cheap rent and to meet new people find this sort of accommodation quite preferable.

a step up in size from the dormitories are the apartments. their distance from the school can range anywhere from right at the periphery of campus to the heart of downtown. they are also much more variable in the number of people that may fit in a single unit. in addition to the more commonplace apartments, there are luxury accommodations with large exercise facilities and spacious layouts. these, however, are very rarely single-person apartments and are typically inhabited by the more well-known students who rely on their parents' wealth or fame.

most commonly, faculty inhabit the houses clustered around the city and campus. it is not unusual to see students in these areas, though typically many students will split the rent for a household. neighbors are often a rare sight, so the "next door romance" is more of a myth than anything. although the typical homeowner cannot get away with a rowdy house party, many of the rivalry clubs have houses in their own exclusive area where the rules are much more lax.

located in the exact center of the city is spectra park. lined by businesses on all sides, spectra park serves as a home to many of the pokemon trapped within. the park is rather large and spans several acres. various ponds dot the property with the occasional bridge to cross them. the trees are slightly more spread out than those that surround the city and the grassy knoll is even barren of all trees except one large oak that shades the top of the hill. many events take place on the stage that sits in the middle of the park, surrounded by water on almost all sides except for the back where performers and workers can enter.

although not the only café located in the area, café calme is a hotspot among students and faculty alike to relax, socialize, and maybe even get some studying in. the inside is dimly lit with little cozy nooks and booths lining the walls and gentle acoustic tunes playing softly in the background. in the center are low-set tables with plush beanbag chairs accompanied by various sized bedding for pokemon of all types. both the lighting and decor are largely mismatched, giving it an eclectic sense of style. at the counter, you can order delicious treats for both you and your pokemon.

close to spectra park lies a large, modern structure made primarily of glass. though potentially a safety hazard, the mall is very closely guarded by both people and pokemon alike and the glass that encloses it is exceptionally thick. inside the mall are restaurants and shops galore, as well as the local movie theater. the interior of the mall is a mix of clean white with splashes of vibrant color. one particularly striking feature is the large amount of plant life scattered throughout the building. wild grass or bug pokemon that make their way into the building can occasionally be found by a surprised customer.

tucked away in a random street of downtown spectra are a set of sliding glass doors that lead into a two-storied building. inside are rows and rows of arcade machines and blinking lights. the decorations within are mismatched and eccentric- a string of paper lanterns one side and varied color of lights hanging from the ceiling in a sporadic manner. Except for the patchwork lighting and blinking lights of the machines, the building is largely dark. for those wishing to impress their date, certain machines will give ticket prizes that can be traded in the back for pokedolls and other small items.

around the corner from the arcade, in a dimly lit alleyway, sits a rather unremarkable set of stairs leading down to a black door guarded by a man and his machoke. those that provide proof that they are over the age of eighteen are allowed past the door into the dark club simply littered with pulsating lights of all color. the music is always cranked to an almost unnecessary volume, adding to the mayhem within. those wishing to drunkenly start a fight are promptly ejected from the building and it is strongly encouraged that people keep their pokemon in their balls to decrease the likelihood of impulsive, disruptive battles.

a city isn't only made up of big locations! for between the park and mall and arcade are a maze of streets that connect parts of the city to another. from street corners to bus stops or vague alleyways, this covers any area within spectra city that is yet to be big enough to be recognized as its own standing location. while most of the city is kept very nice and presentable, there are some much shadier areas if you look hard enough ...
