Pokemon: The Ultimates
Team Rocket. Team Aqua. Team Magma. Team Galactic. In the last decade, these criminal organizations have wreaked havoc upon the world of Pokemon. Their goals have varied from monetary gain, to global domination, to global geography manipulation, to the manipulation of time and space themselves. And they’ve very nearly succeeded in their goals; every time, it was but a twist of fate that a few random trainers were able to overcome the odds and foil their plans.
But for S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Hazard Intervention, Espionage Logistics Directorate), the global peace-keeping and counterterrorist organization, depending on a few, random, young Pokemon trainers was unacceptable. After Team Galactic’s near-success in using the time-altering and space-altering Pokemon (Dialga and Palkia) to recreate the world, S.H.I.E.L.D. set the Ultimates Initiative into motion. In conjunction with the world’s Pokemon Leagues, the Ultimates would be S.H.I.E.L.D.’s elite team of trainers dedicated to thwarting the plans of the above-mentioned teams, and any other teams that might emerge.
Now there are rumors of a new criminal organization have surfaced. While the name of this organization is unknown (for now it is called Team X), S.H.I.E.L.D. intelligence suspects that the organization is seeking out a number of Legendary Pokemon. They have apparently shown special interest in the Legendary Pokemon Giratina and--to a lesser extent--Darkrai and Jirachi. "Team X" has also stolen the Red and Blue orbs from Mt. Pyre, the Rainbow Wing and the Silver Wing from Ecruteak City, and several ancient scrolls from museums; these texts belonged to a long-lost civilization and portain to an ancient prophecy. For what purpose, no one knows, but "Team X" is slowly growing in power and influence. It’s time for the Ultimates to show their worth.
You’re one of the Ultimates, elite Pokemon trainers that have been brought into S.H.I.E.L.D. to counter the efforts of criminal organizations like Team Rocket, Aqua, Magma, and Galactic. You’ve been assigned to S.H.I.E.L.D. by one branch of the Pokemon League (Kanto/Johto/Hoenn/Sinnoh) to serve in the Ultimates. Now it’s you’re job to handle the remnants of these criminal organizations while also searching for clues about "Team X".
: The oldest and most well-organized of the known criminal organizations. Team Rocket has had their hands in almost every plot in Kanto and Johto. Their greatest accomplishment was the creation of Mewtwo from the DNA of Mew. But they lost control of Mewtwo he hasn’t been seen since. Team Rocket also attempted to capture Lugia, Ho-oh, Celebi, the Legendary Birds, and the Legendary Beasts. After being foiled at every turn by a group of young trainers, the boss Giovanni disbanded Team Rocket.
Team Aqua and Team Magma
: Team Aqua sought the super-ancient Kyogre to attempt to expand the seas and oceans, claiming that since life came from the waters, more water would be better for the planet. Team Magma sought the super-ancient Groudon to attempt to expand the landmasses, claiming that more land would allow for more places to live and more life to flourish. But both teams lost control of the super-ancient Pokemon, who fought each other in a titanic battle. It was Rayquaza who finally arrived to calm the two Pokemon and send them back to slumber. Aqua and Magma’s leaders then reformed.
: The most recent of the criminal organizations, Team Galactic was run by a man named Cyrus who sought out Dialga and Palkia so that he could reorder time and space to make himself the supreme deity of Earth. Had it not been for the interference of a few young trainers, then Cyrus would have succeeded and we would be living in a vastly different world today. After being foiled, Cyrus vowed revenge.
: The Strategic Hazard Intervention, Espionage Logistics Directorate, is a global peacekeeping and counterterrorist organization that was formed many years ago to attempt to combat the threats of various criminal organizations. They met with great success until Giovanni took charge of Team Rocket. Giovanni was able to outwit and outmaneuver S.H.I.E.L.D. at every turn. However, when he reformed Team Rocket, he was sought out by S.H.I.E.L.D. to aid them against these organization. He began to improve S.H.I.E.L.D.’s capabilities and was then promoted to Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. It was Giovanni that first developed the Ultimates Initiative with the purpose of combating the various criminal organizations that exist throughout the world.
: The Ultimates is a joint-run team of elite trainers run by both S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Pokemon League. In a sense, they are “superheroes” to the public. They are dedicated to defending the world from organizations like Team Rocket, Aqua, Magma, and Galactic. The Ultimates answer only to a select group of people:
--Giovanni: The Director of Shield, also the former Viridian City Gym Leader and reformed leader of Team Rocket
--Archie: The reformed Leader of Team Aqua
--Maxie: The reformed Leader of Team Magma
--Steven Stone: The initial field leader of the Ultimates and their liason to S.H.I.E.L.D.
The Regional Pokemon League Champions:
--Lance: the Kanto-Johto League Champion
--Wallace: the Hoenn League Champion
--Cynthia: the Sinnoh League Champion
