The woman looked old from afar, probably in her fifty's. She stared at Issaic with a Mystical look on her face as if she was examining his entire being. She sloely walked up to him and Issaic faltered, unsure of what to do.
"Do not be afraid child..."
She said as she walked towards him. Her voice had a soothing effect, as if she could lull him to sleep with her voice alone. She was at arms length now, and Issaic could see her features clearly . She didnt look as old from up close then she did from afar. She had long dark hair that flowed down to her shoulders and she had a comely face with no wrinkles or worry marks at all. After examining him further, she finally spoke.
"I bet your wondering how you got here and why your here in the first place. How you got here is a question that even I cannot answer... As for why your here..."
In the darkness, Issaic could make out a faint yelping sound. Issaic understood nothing so far, but decided to let the lady finish before asking any questions.
"You have a great destiny ahead of you... You are one of the special ones that may alter their paths at their will, causing great changes..."
Issaic was completely baffled by this woman's words, yet somehow, they made sense.
"C-Changes? What kind?"
For a second, Issaic could of sworn he saw the woman smile for a second, but dismissed it as imagination.
"That depends... Would you accept a changed destiny even if it meant giving up your life to protect others?"
Giving up my life? A changed destiny? What is going on here..?
Issaic was unsure of what to say at the moment. But he then boldy answered.
"Yes, I would!"
Issaic didnt understand if this was just some extremely realistic dream, or if it was indeed all real. So he made the decision, hoping that whatever this was would end quicker.
"Then follow me..."
Issaic watched as the woman turned around and in a matter of seconds, faded into the darkness ahead.
"For an old lady, she's pretty quick. I better catch-up before I lose her.."
Issaic started walking further into the the room. Every now and then, he'd hear a snarl and freeze up. The farther he went into the darkness, the louder the sounds got. Issaic finally found what was making all the sounds and Immediatly a smile enveloped his face.
Issaic yelled excitedly as he got to the part of the room where the old lady was standing.
She stood there, watching three pokemon at play on the ground. They were pretty large pokemon, but not larger than Issaw was. They looked like little babies, yet Issaic could feel the power brimming in each of them. One was blue, one red, and another yellow. The pokemon resembled some of the statues he had seen in the other room. They were crawling over each other, trying to pin one another down. They didnt even notice when Issaic walked over to the old woman.
"What are these pokemon?" Issaic asked the woman curiously.
She continued watching the pokemon as if Issaic didnt even ask the question.
"Lying here are the offspring of the legendary beast pokemon. Suicune, Entei, and Raikou... You must protect one of these pokemon with your life and keep it from being used for evil of any kind."
Issaic absorbed what the woman was saying before saying anything.
"My life huh...?"
Issaic watched as the red pokemon, Entei, playfully bit the blue one on the ear. Issaic bent over to let the pokemon know was there, and they instantly jumped on him. They licked his face, and playfully bit him.
"Ahh, stop that!" Issaic said laughing. Issaic got back up and looked at each pokemon.
"Entei, Suicune, Raikou..."
Issaic thought hard about his decision before finally deciding.
The old woman looked at the pokemon, then looked back up at Issaic.
"Interesting choice trainer..."
The old woman reached into her pocket and pulled out an extremely cool looking pokeball. It was pokeball designed in shape, but had a flame design all around it. Engraved in the middle, where the button was supposed to be, was a maginificent red ruby. The woman gently grabbed Issaics hand and he didnt resist. She then put the ball in his hand.
"Now capture your partner.."
Issaic firmly grasped the ball and gently tapped the confused red pokemon on the nose. For a second, it had a knowing look on its face. It was then absorbed into the pokeball. The other pokemon looked around in confusion, but then went back to playing.
"It's time to send you back. It is now too late to return to the path you once had. Evil forces lurk.. Don't let a legend die..."
Issaic was once again confused by the old womans words. She stared into his eyes and suddenly, he couldnt move, breath, or even speak.
"What's going on!?" Issaic thought to himself, panicing. Suddenly, he collapsed on the ground.
"And so your journey begins.. Be careful..."
