I might have done some formatting error while c/ping from ff.net. Although I have checked it twice I might have missed one or two, so please do point out.

Introductory notes:

This story is loosely based on the after-game story of B2W2, except the protagonist is Red. It is a two-chaptered story, as it would have ended up into a 14,786 worded One-shot to which I was actually planning to add lot more. Which means the second chapter will actually be long.

Content Disclaimer: All the characters belong to Game Freak, Nintendo and whatever else but I have molded these characters as I wished.

Rating: PG-15 to be safe, as the second part is slightly violent and involves some blood here and there.

R & R: The author would love if the reader would post a feedback (however short and negative it is) as you see this particular story is far from perfect and the author definitely needs help to improve himself.

The Trip to Unova: A flying-saucer, a beast and a mad-scientist.

Part One:

The object shot past like a lightning. It shot past the terrified Pidove across the sky, above the green forests, the pink skyscrapers and beneath the white clouds. It didn't know where it was heading to, or where it has come from. It didn't know what it was or why it was being chased. It only knew one thing, fear.

'Energy level, critical. Damage to the right side.' A computerized voice came out through the speakers.

'Energy level, critical. System shutting down in five seconds, requesting immediate landing.'

The object didn't heed the warning as it was thrusting forward with fear. If the object's senses were attached to its brain rather than the Artificial intelligence, it could have been stopped by pain. But it was not the case.

'Five.'

'Four.'

'Three.'

'Two.'

'One.'

'Zero. System shutting down, activating Hibernation.'
With that the object's flight came to a stop, it crashed down like a bird shot down by a hunter's gun.
---------------------

The Air Unova approached its destination carrying 300 people in its enormous span. The passengers were all in an enthusiastic mood, as their destination happens to be Unova's biggest holiday spot, the Undella Bay. Among the enthusiastic passengers was one beautiful Jennifer Blue.

"Look at that, Red." She tugged the young boy in his teens. His face was covered by his red hat. He was deep in sleep, exhausted because of the tiring six hours flight from Kanto.

"RED!" She shouted into his ear, startling him awake.

"What's wrong with you?" He asked, half furious and half asleep.

She silently pointed outside the window. The expression on his face changed from a scowl to that of a pleasantly surprised.

"Whoa," he muttered.

The breath-taking view of Undella bay was before their eyes. The Undella Bay was shaped like a 'V' pointing outwards. It was a congregation of Pokémon of various regions. The Starvyu, Alomomola and Frillish were swimming in the beautiful blue Undella Sea. The huge Wailord occasionally came out of the water and performed flips. Krabby and Kingler crawled along the shore. Pelipper were hunting for their fish and Wingull perched lazily by the craggy areas.

"I have never seen most of these Pokémon." She muttered.

Speechless, he nodded in agreement.

Soon they were out of the airport, dragging their baggage.

"You should really be thanking me for that." Jennifer shook her head, pulling her long black hair back.

"Fine, fine." He was slightly annoyed.

They looked around for the person who was supposed to be waiting for them, ignoring the cab drivers who were looking at them expectantly.

"Champion Red of Kanto, I presume."

He turned around. Standing behind them was a man in his fifties.

"Yes, you are…"

He bowed slightly, "My name is Sebastian. Master Green Oak arranged me to receive you and Ms. Blue."

"That's great."

"If you please, our vehicle is ready to take you to the mansion." He pointed to a grand Limousine standing by the Car Park that outclassed every other vehicle around by far.

"A butler and a car like this, nobody told me Oak is this rich." Jenny whispered into his ears.

"Well, he owns a big ranch, and all. I guess something like this should be expected."

They got into the car that took them to the Oak's guest house.
-----------------
By the northwest shores of Undella, two people sat down by the waters, with fishing rods in their hands. They were known to be the Basculin brothers as Basculin was the only Pokémon they ever fished.

The guy with the red striped shirt said staring at the sky, "Hey, bro."

"Yea, bro?" Answered the other wearing a blue striped shirt.

"Is that a U.F.O?" He said pointing at the object in the sky.

"Don't be dumb. This isn't a sci-fi movie." He said looking at the sky, when he spotted the distant object in the air, he shouted, "Oh my god, that's a flying- saucer!"
--------------------
The Oak's guest house was in fact a mansion that rivaled the other mansion in Undella Bay. Being a famous holiday spot such private guest houses were common in Undella.

"Man that Oak's rich." Red muttered looking at the expanse of the mansion.

"Well you should thank Green once we get inside." Jenny said.

"Master Green?" Sebastian turned around, "But Master Green is in Hoenn Region, sir."

They exchanged a glance, "Hoenn?" They cried at once.

"Yes, sir." He replied as earnestly as he could.

"B-But he said he and Daisy were already here." She looked at Red, who nodded in agreement.

"I received no such information from the Master, Ms. Blue." He said putting a apologetic expression.

"Do you have a phone inside?" Red asked.

"Yes, Master Red."

Red and Jenny went inside. Once Sebastian showed them their rooms, he showed them to the telephone.

Red immediately called him. The videophone connected to Hoenn, an operator then linked it to Green's Hoenn guest house. Once connected, Green Oak appeared on the videophone's screen.

"Yo, Red!" He waved.

"What the heck, Green!" He pounced at once, "You and Daisy are supposed to come here before us, aren't you?"

"About that," there was a crooked smile on his face, "I couldn't come because of some important business."

Jenny pushed him away from the camera's vision, "What do you mean, you can't come? You aren't expecting me to spend my vacation with him?" She pointed at Red.

"Hey, I am not happy with that either. I am going to go nuts if I stay here with this girl."

"Oh, please, don't kid me Red. You are nuts." She shouted back.

Then she glared at Green, who shrugged, "Sorry. I can't help."

"Oh, screw it." She rolled her eyes. "This trip is already a biiig mess."

"The feeling is mutual." Red said to which she gave him a disgusted look and left for her room.

"You really know how to piss off a girl."

"She started it." Red said accusingly, "Besides it's your fault anyway."

Green sighed, "Look, Red. There is a reason why I have arranged this."

"Oh, so you did arrange this, huh."

"Yeah, because you are a wimp and can't be straight with Jenny."

"W-What do you mean by that?" He asked, trying to look innocent.

"Ah, please don't gimme that look, Red. The whole Kanto knows you and Jenny like each other."

"W-What?" Red stammered to which Green sighed again.

"I mean what I say, you and Jenny like each other." He stressed each word carefully.

"B-But…" Red said uneasily. He lowered his cap as if to hide his face. "N-No, I think you are mistaken."

"Seriously, Red?" Green asked as if he was being ridiculous, which he was, in a way.

"Now look!" Green said, "Put your damn ego aside, this is the best opportunity, okay? Just go out and propose her. You can thank me later, of course."

"B-But—"

"See ya, Red. Smell ya later" The screen went off suddenly.

"Oh, boy." He mumbled. "This isn't going to be a nice trip."
-----------------------------

A huge crowd formed around the electricity substation. The huge tower by the station was broken in half. The broken half was on the ground, and the grass was charred as if it was set on fire.

A news reporter was screaming at a cameraman, a couple of brave Pokémon trainers stood on the frontlines their Pokémon growling at something. There was a commotion in the crowd. Most of them were jabbing at their mobile phones and few others, their Pokédex.

But the strangest of them was the creature that lay by the broken tower. It was referred to as an object few paragraphs ago, but unlike then, it wasn't shaped like a space saucer. The creature had had four perfect limbs that resembled the human legs and hands.

The Pokémon was entangled by the supply wires through which the high voltage current passed. The Pokémon's eyes were closed as if it were in pain.
-------------

Having nothing else to do at the mansion thanks to the untimely power cut and a simultaneous generator failure, as per Sebastian's suggestion Red and Jenny decided to spend some time in the shopping district.

Red was deep in thought as they walked through the busy street. Green's words echoed through his brain. "Propose her!"

"What is it?" Jenny asked, noticing that he was unusually silent.

He lowered his red cap covering his face, "Nothing."

"You sure?"

"Don't annoy me, okay."

She stared at him for a second, and then grinned, "Looks like I interrupted your romantic thoughts, again."

"Shut up."

She giggled, "I will take it as a yes. So who is this girl you have in mind?"

"Why are you so interested?"

She said after a pause, "Just wondering who's in your mind."

'This is it, Red!'

"Alright, I'll tell you," he said stopping suddenly. He wasn't the type to blush and stammer for an hour or so he thought of himself. And so he decided to say it boldly. "Well it's—"

A loud booming noise interrupted him. There was a stunning silence for a second, the people on the streets looked at each other's faces, each considering various possibilities that caused the explosion. None were pleasant and so there was the same expression on everyone's face, anxiety.

"What's that?" Red exclaimed.

"Look!" She pointed at a distant trail of smoke in the air.

"Something's wrong. Let's go." He urged, she nodded without hesitating.

They sprinted towards the substation from where the sound came from. People were running helter-skelter as if they were mice. But the center of all the commotion seemed to be where the smoke was coming from. A large crowd surrounded the broken tower. Red and Jenny pushed themselves past the crowd. Only to be welcomed by some fainted Pokémon.

"Oh my god." Jenny closed her mouth, her eyes were to the damage done by the explosion.

"Hey, what happened?" Red asked a boy who was tending to his Arcanine.

"A strange Pokémon attacked us." He said.

"A Pokémon?" Red repeated it. As a Champion of the league he was aware of the occasional outbursts of rare Pokémon and the destruction they cause when trainers attempt to catch them.

"Which way did it go?" Jenny asked.

"It went into the forest." He pointed into the woods.

Red and Jenny exchanged a glance, and nodded in agreement.

It seemed that they weren't the only trainers with the same intention. A couple of brave trainers already left in that direction in order to catch the Pokémon. It was a common sight in such cases, because in most such situations the trainers will be awarded with a costly T.M for the work.

But Jenny and Red had different motives. The Pokémon in such cases suffer from being injured by various trained Pokémon. The best way was to beat it before anyone else.
---------------------
Somewhere far away in the region of Unova a Pokémon opened its eyes after many hundred years. The four-legged beast slowly marched its way out of the cave. It closed its eyes that were used to years of darkness, momentarily as the bright sunlight poured in.

Its primal instincts awoke it, telling that its nemesis broke free. It let out a beastly roar that echoed throughout Unova.

It then lunged into the action, towards the 'creature' it loathed for hundreds of years.
-------------------------

The creature moved swiftly among the array of trees, despite being a robotic object, it moved among the trees with relative ease. It ducked under low lying branches, jumped over the trippy undergrowth. But the pursuers were catching up; on the lead was the Red Mantis Pokémon, Scizor which also moved within the forest as if it were it backyard. A Unefezant suddenly attacked from the sky in an attempt to strike it down, but the creature swiftly turned around and aimed the gun like projections on its arms at the bird. A powerful bolt of electricity convulsed through the bird causing it to faint on the spot.

But the red mantis then managed to catch up with it; it prepared to strike the creature's chest with a powerful Metal Claw.

'Danger Approaching. Counter Measure: Fly.'

And then with the instincts it never had before the creature jumped up in an attempt to fly. But the fast approaching Scizor then managed to strike it on its legs.

Tripped by the attack, the creature fell to the ground wincing in pain.

'Critical Damage, Left Leg status: damaged. Navigation, Impossible.'

The creature cursed, the enemy creature landed confidently watching it twisting in agony.

The creature didn't know of any feelings, except fear. The cause of its fear wasn't the enemy creature or the humans chasing it, but its fear was itself. It half-acted on its instincts but the rest of the time, it moved unnaturally as if someone else was commanding it. But who? It didn't know, but it definitely knew someone was controlling its body and there wasn't anything it could do about it.

'Pokémon Scizor Approaching, Status: Human Controlled, Trainer level: Very High.'

'Initiating defensive discharge.'

The creature's red eyes widened, it was the same feeling again, the feeling of being controlled.

Something inside its body was whirring, the creature then let out a powerful discharge of electricity.
----------

At some distance away.

"What's that?" Jenny pointed at the yellow lightning that seemed to erupt like a volcano.

Red noticed the discharging electricity, but amidst the powerful current a red creature flew into the sky in an attempt to dodge it.

"Oh, no." Red muttered in realization, "Looks like my Scizor pissed that creature."

Either trainer sprinted towards the source of electricity. The lightning was spreading out in every direction scorching the trees that blocked the flood of electricity. A rumbling noise pricked their ears as the electricity shot past them. Either of them had to close their silhouette of a creature met their eyes, standing at the epicenter of the discharge.

"What the heck is that?" Jenny had to scream to make herself audible.

"It must be that Pokémon." Red shouted back. "What do we do?"

"We need to beat it obviously!" She shouted back, with a hint of sarcasm in her words.

"Right, leave that to me." He removed the hands from his ears, and clutched onto a Pokéball. "I am counting on you, my best partner." He kissed the Pokéball.

The Pokéball materialized with a flash into a six foot tall majestic crimson creature. The creature stood on two legs, and flapped its powerful wings that were of blue-shade on the inside. An enormous flame was lit on its tail that indicated the Pokémon's immense prowess among the species called Charizard.

"Charizard! Get into the air and use flamethrower on the creature responsible for this."

The Pokémon despite its arrogant appearance nodded to the trainer and let out a monstrous roar. With one single flap of its wing it propelled its way into the sky to meet up with the red mantis, Scizor.

Upon Scizor's direction Charizard spotted its target, which was wildly discharging huge amounts of electricity.

It dodged a powerful electric current that passed where it once was and opened its mouth letting out a huge flame at its target.

The flames dashed past the discharge and struck the creature in the center. A huge explosion followed, the sound from which reverberated throughout the forest. All of a sudden the forest became calm and grey smoke spread out into the surroundings.

"Looks like our coast is clear." Red said, his ears still ringing because of the discharge.

They slowly walked through the smoke, guided by blurry vision. Charizard and Scizor landed by the creature and waited for their trainer to come.

'Severe Damage. Power completely discharged.'

"Good job, Charizard." Red gave the pseudo-dragon a victory signal. The Pokémon snorted proudly.

"Whoa, what is that?" Jenny muttered, watching the creature on the ground.

"Beats me." Red said stooping down to examine the creature while still maintaining a good distance.

The creature was entirely purple in color, except for the large red eyes that resembled a car's headlights, not to mention the black marks of soot at many places on its body that indicated severe burning and damage. It had a disproportionately enormous head and an abdomen that reminds one of a bug Pokémon.

The red eyes moved around as if it had a life of its own. Now that it seemed safe, the trainers slowly gathered around. An unspeakable silence broke among them as none of them recognized the creature.

The silence was dispelled when a particular trainer pointed at Red and exclaimed, "A powerful Charizard and a red hat. Aren't you Champion Red from Kanto?"

There was a sudden murmur among the trainers. Almost every trainer was familiar with that name.

"Oopsie, looks like our dreams for a peaceful holiday is over." Jenny said.

"Y-Yeah," Red muttered, he gave the trainers a nervous smile and a small wave.

'Critical Situation. Engaging Self-Destruction.'

And then the sudden silence engulfed them again. The trainers all looked at the purple creature, their eyes widened, legs trembling and wondered if they heard it right.

'Self-Destruction, engaging in three seconds.'

"Oh, god!" Red instinctively grabbed Jenny's arms.

'Three.'

At once everyone sprang into action and started running.

'Two.'

'One.'

Red screamed at the top of his voice, "Get down!"

A powerful shockwave swept past turning obliterating the trees around, a sudden expulsion of flames combined with a deafening sound then followed it. Red pulled Jenny and landed on the ground as hard as he could. The splinters ended up raining on them for what seemed a long-second.

Once it ended a deadly silence ensued once again. But none of them could dare as much as look back for five seconds. They slowly turned around, their hearts thumping like an engine and their brains blank with shock.

Red got up slowly, staggering in the process. He slowly stumbled watching the destruction caused by the explosion. It was a minor explosion, but it could have easily taken their lives if they hadn't moved.

Charizard and Scizor landed carefully beside their trainer watching the grey char the explosion left.

"That was nasty." He muttered under his breath.

"It's still alive!" A trainer screamed.

Two dim red eyes flashed through the grey cloud of smoke earning a vengeful growl from Charizard and Scizor.

"Wait!" Red gestured them to stop, he was still dazed but he could hear the noise faintly.

"Bzzzt." It was a weak buzz, more like a groan.

The purple creature attempted to lift its head, with extreme difficulty but the weight pulled it down to unconsciousness.

"It's in pain," Red said, the hint of astonishment still lingering on his face.
----------------------

The P2 Laboratory.

A certain Pokémon researcher was intensely watching the afternoon news bulletin.

"Today, Undella Bay has been the center of one of the most sensational moments. An unidentified Pokémon attacked the substation throwing everyone into panic. The Pokémon fled into the woods after a couple of brave trainers chased the Pokémon. The Pokémon has been captured after it managed to injure fifteen Pokémon trainers. And now, I would like to show you to the man behind the Pokémon's capture, the savior, who is none other than the Champion of Kanto himself."

The reporter turned to a teenage boy, "The Pokémon was in some kind of pain, and we had to chase it deep into the forest. When we thought we managed to pin it down but it managed to use Self-Destruct on us."

"Mr. Red, what kind of Pokémon do you think it is?"

"I am not sure. I have never seen a Pokémon like that. But Nurse Joy says it was responsible for the malfunctioning of the electronic devices all over Undella, today."

The Professor turned off the television. He turned to the black-dressed men standing in the room. They were trembling in fear. Their eyes were on the Professor, wondering what kind of reaction he was going to give.

In contrast to their expectations, there was a bright smile on his face. "The two of you have done an excellent job. I honestly don't know how I could reward useful grunts like you two." He got up from his couch, and walked towards them, his hands to his back.

He took a book with a red-cover into his left hand and pretended to read it.

"Ah," he stroked his chin with his other arm, as if he got a brilliant idea, "I can use the two of you in my next human experiment, what do you say?"

The grunt blurted, "S-Sir it wasn't out fault Genesect was—"

"I would prefer if you talk when I want you to." He said in a soft but commanding voice, "Very well." He nodded with a smile when they closed their mouths.

"Go and call Angel," he said to the grunt. The grunt left the room immediately and returned back with a red-headed woman in her late-twenties.

"You called me?" She said, her sharp black eyes shooting into his serene emerald eyes.

"Yes, my dear Admin." He smiled at the grunts again, "Well our brave grunts here have successfully managed to push us deep into the beautiful deep abyss. But to our luck we have found Genesect."

Angel shot a glare at the grunts, causing them to shudder. She then turned to Achroma, "I shall get it back."

"No," Achroma said, looking into his book again to which Angel rolled her eyes.

"It seems the Champion of Kanto has been involved with the issue. It is inevitable for us to fight him." He closed the book, "I don't like to end up like Ghetsis, let's greet him with our entire force."
--------------------
The Pokémon center was crooked with people who were attempting to take a look at the mysterious Pokémon under the pretense of healing their Pokémon. The police were struggling to keep them at bay.

Inside the emergency ward Red and Jenny were waiting tensely.

"Do you think it will be okay?" She asked.

Red sighed deeply, "How would I know?" He said making an irritated face.

"Fine, fine. I was just worried."

Red stared at her for a second falling into deep thought, "Sorry. I am just in a bad mood."

He said after breaking the silence, "The news reporters were saying that the Pokémon attacked the substation but—"

A soft and kind voice said, "The Pokémon was attacked, it crashed into the substation."

"Nurse Joy," They stood up at once. "How's the Pokémon?" Jenny asked.

"I tried to recover its health a bit but—" There was uncertainty in her voice, "The Pokémon is really odd, I have never seen anything like it. Some of its parts seem to be mechanically made."

"Mechanically made?" Red asked her as if she spoke Latin.

"But Nurse Joy," Jenny shook her head vigorously, "How is that possible?"

"I am not sure either; it could be subjected to some kind of experimentation. It might have tried to escape them and—"

"Got attacked in the process." Red finished. "I wish I could lay my hands on these people."

"Well now that it is in our hands we can pro—oh, my god," She panicked, "It's getting up." She said looking at the Pokémon through the glass window.

The three of them dashed into the room, but it was too late, the Pokémon was already on its feet.

'Approaching creatures, three humans. No threat detected.'

The Pokémon lifted its right arm-slash-gun and pointed at them threateningly.

"It seemed to be scared, it will attack us." Red said enlarging a Pokéball.

'Pokéball detected, standby for battle.'

"Wait." Nurse Joy grabbed his raised arm and lowered it. "Put the ball back."

Detecting the seriousness in her voice, Red resized the Pokéball back.

'Threat removed. Standby off.'

The Pokémon slowly lowered its arms.

"What's going on, Nurse Joy?" Jenny asked her as if she were her only hope out of the craziness.

"The Pokémon seems to be working on some kind of A.I." She said dreamily, unsure herself. "This is something we should handle to the league itself."

"You're right," Red agreed that it was the only sensible thing to do, "We need to take it to the league's professor."

"We need to make sure it stays safe till then." Jenny said.

And then out of the blue the wall exploded into pieces. A large hole was formed on the Pokémon Centre's wall.

"Excuse me for the interruption," A man in a white coat slowly walked through the hole. His emerald eyes were on the book in his hand. About fifteen Pokémon that resembled a steel ball with a magnet like projection followed into the room. Following them was a larger Pokémon that seemed like the godfather of the smaller Pokémon.

"Magnezone." Jenny muttered under her breath.

The man closed the book and smiled at them, "I am here to claim my lost property."

The trio stood dumbfounded for a minute or so.

'Threat detected. Threat detected.'

The creature attempted to move, but it couldn't due to exhaustion. It supported itself from falling against the chamber's wall.

"If you wouldn't mind, Magnezone. Thunderwave."

"Wait!" Red stopped him.

"Oh, is there anything I can help you with?" He asked innocently.

Red whispered into Jenny's ears, "Is this is an act or is he really innocent?"

"He is stealing that Pokémon in front of your eyes, dammit!" She hissed.

The Magnezone released a blue electric attack, the purple colored Pokémon's arms and legs were constricted, restricting its movements.

'Status: Paralyzed. Mobility: As good as a crawling Shuckle.'

"What?" Red exclaimed as if he just realized that, which he did.

"Hey who do you think you are and what are you are doing to that Pokémon?"

The Professor was once again engrossed, reading the book. He said lifting his head, "I deeply apologize for not introducing myself. My name is Professor Achroma, resident researcher of Team Plasma. I specialized in Mechatronics and Pokéology. I am currently taking away the Pokémon that escaped my laboratory."

"What?" Red gawked.

"He means, he is stealing the Pokémon. Now just stop him!"

"Alright then, Charizard!" He tossed the Pokéball.

The fire-type emerged out of the ball with a roar.

"Very well." The smile on Achroma's face disappeared. He gently closed his book, and put it in his pocket and took out a Pokéball from the same. "I have a Pokémon that is worthy of answering a Champion's call."

"I call forth, the brilliance of Plasma, Rotom."

The Pokéball materialized into a red-bulb like Pokémon. The Pokemon carried a mischievous grin on its face that reminds you of a five year old.

"What the hell is that?" Red took out his Pokédex.

"Rotom, the Plasma Pokémon. The Pokémon is said to be capable of possessing any electronic devices. Type: Electric/ Ghost."

"Rotom is a legendary Pokémon," Jenny said warily, "Be careful, Red."

Red nodded.

"Charizard—Flamethrower!"

Much like earlier Charizard shot out powerful flames from its mouth.

"Protect, if you please."

A green barrier blocked the hot flames immediately.

"Disappear from its sight." Achroma commanded.

The Plasma Pokémon immediately shot itself like a spark of electricity into the tube light.

"Where did it go?" Red asked, stunned by the speed.

As if to answer his question the tube light broke into pieces, as the spark shot into the healing machine. The healing machine suddenly started to glow in various colors and displayed numbers only to bust with a small spark of explosion and appeared right before Charizard.

"There it is, Flamethrower!" Red shouted at once.

"Confuse Ray!" Achroma commanded almost immediately.

Rotom let out a bright flash of light into Charizard's eyes.

The pseudo-dragon roared in surprise suddenly and took a step back, tripped against a wire and fell on its back.

"Charizard, snap out of it!" He exclaimed in concern.

"I wouldn't advocate 'the-wait-for-the-confusion-to-heal-policy' now." Achroma said, a small smirk now covered his face. "While considering your capabilities as a champion you can take the fifty percent chance of attacking me but—we are in a cramped up space. God knows whom the flamethrower might hit. Am I right?"

After a tentative second, "Return, Charizard!" He took the Pokémon back.

"You are an intelligent person." Achroma returned back to his innocent smile, "Rotom kindly bind these people with Thunder Wave."

The Plasma Pokémon whipped up the electric attack and bound the three together like a rope.

"I apologize for capturing you like this, but my rather incompetent grunts are having some issues bringing in Genesect's container. Ah, there they are."

A couple of men dressed in black carried in then brought in an over-sized container.

"Plasma." The Nurse gasped in surprise. "But they were supposed to be disbanded."

"Trust me on this," Red said, "These creeps never give up. Even after their boss disbands and run away, they even go as far as to call them back by broadcasting through radio."

The struggling Genesect with the help of the Magnezone's Thunderwave was put inside and covered by a lid.

"With that we take our leave," he bowed once again and prepared to leave like a stage artist.

He stopped once before leaving, "Red, you maybe the Champion of a league." Achroma said proudly, "But real-life matches are quite different from tournament ones." He smiled, "You see, there is always the life-and-death factor."

After what seemed like forever but was actually five minutes, a couple of men dressed in blue uniform came into the emergency ward.

"What the heck were you guys doing?" Jenny asked, furious as the policeman sent out a Joltik that slowly consumed the binding electricity slowly.

The policeman obviously offended said, "A huge number of Plasma grunts raided the Pokémon Center. We weren't prepared for such a massive attack."

The Thunderwave finally wore off, freeing them.

"They couldn't have gone far," Jenny said standing up, she sent out a Pokémon from the Pokéball. The Pokémon was a blue colored bat with a mouth large enough to eat a man's head.

"Follow, Plasma!"

The Pokémon nodded and flew through the vast hole created by Achroma.

Red and Jenny followed the Pokémon out of the hole. By then a huge crowd was starting to creep towards them.

"We need to hurry, they're getting away." Red said impatiently.

Just then, "Master Red, Ms. Blue." Sebastian pulled in, on his limousine.

"Sebastian, you're the best!" Jenny exclaimed.

They jumped into the car which immediately dashed towards the Eastern Port.

"Plasma has a boat docked in the port," Sebastian informed. "They were planning on a quick escape."
-------------------

"There they are!" Jenny pointed as they turned around to the 7th Street; they saw Achroma in a black car that was zooming its way past the traffic towards the Port. A huge symbol that read 'P-2' was on the black car's rear.

Sebastian stepped on the wheel and dashed past the slow traffic swerving around and cutting past the cars.

The gap between the cars slowly seemed to close down, but then suddenly a violent spark shot into the limousine. Two naughty eyes appeared on the speedometer. Before Sebastian could react to it, the hand brake moved on its own immediately bringing the car to a screeching halt.

Red and Jenny jumped out of the car immediately.

The Rotom appeared out of the car and laughed at them haughtily.

"I know how to deal with you," Red said, "Scizor!" He tossed his Pokéball. The red mantis materialized out of the Pokéball.

"I'm going after Achroma," Jenny said as her Goldbat clutched onto it.

"Jenny wait," Red tried to stop her.

The Rotom immediately shot itself into the car as Sebastian jumped out. The driverless car dashed towards her.

"Scizor, Superpower!" Red shouted.

The mantis immediately raced the car and stepped in front of it. It spread its two claws that shone in a bright light filled with power and held the car as it dashed into it. The limousine immediately wrecked into pieces on colliding with the Scizor, the broken pieces were thrown around everywhere.

"Master Green will not be happy." Sebastian muttered sadly.

Then a ghosted-bike dashed past them towards the port.

"Dammit." Red slammed his fist against the road and then regretted doing it.

It took him about five minutes to reach the port by foot. Luckily for him he didn't found the need for searching for the Plasma ship.

The ship was already a few good feet away from the port. Achroma stood by the deck, with his fifteen-odd Magnemite and was waving him good-bye.

"As if I am going to let you," Red gritted his teeth and tossed a Pokéball into the water, "Lapras come on out!"

A gigantic monster that resembled a turtle in structure and a snail's head appeared out of the Pokéball. The water around splashed with a huge sound as the enormous Pokémon landed on it.

"Let's go!" Red barked the Lapras into action.

The Pokémon despite its appearance swam towards the ship with a speed akin to a motor boat.

"That's quite an energetic Pokémon you have," Achroma shouted as Red got closer to the ship, his hands to his back. "But we can play some other day."

The mischievous Rotom was once again before him, "Rotom, a Thunderbolt for his valor, please."

"Stop it with Icebeam!"

A freezing beam of energy was shot from the Lapras's Icebeam struck the Thunderbolt and overpowered it with ease; the freezing attack shot the Plasma Pokémon away onto the deck.

"To defeat an electric-type like that you are quite the champion," Achroma stood unfazed. "But unfortunately life isn't as fair as a battle field."

All of a sudden the fifteen Magnemite surrounded him in a circle.

"Lapras use Surf and drive them all away!"

"Metal Sound, please!"

The Magnemite at once let out a powerful screeching sound that tore his eardrums apart.

He didn't know for how long he was like that, but Red tightly closed his ears and shut his eyes in pain. At some point he fell into the water.

He opened his eyes as the water clogged his breathing. He struggled his way back to the surface, gasping for breath.

His eyes burned, he coughed up a lot of water. Clearing his vision he looked around to see where he was. The Magnemite left his Lapras after what seemed like a series of Thunder-shocks.

"Lapras," he pulled himself towards the beast, the Pokémon despite its size growled softly in response.

He looked at the ship with eyes filled with anger. But then, the anger disappeared only to be surpassed by a huge surprise.

The ship which was sailing by the waters then slowly seemed to be lifted into the air. At first he thought it was some kind of hallucination. But the ship indeed rose out from the waters and slowly ascended into the sky.

"Oh, crap." He muttered, he did remember hearing something about a flying ship that belonged to Team Plasma. But he never expected something like that to pull such a feat in front of his eyes.

He watched the 5000 pound mass slowly pacing into the distant sky as if it were from a fantasy cinema.

His Lapras then growled for some reason and pointed at the ship. He didn't understand at first, there was a blue spot hanging along the railings of the ship. He took out his Pokédex and aimed at the ship.

"Pokémon Goldbat."

He looked at the dexter as if he has seen a ghost. "Oh god, Jenny must have sneaked into the ship." He looked into the sky again, the ship was long gone.

It's not over yet. The real action will begin real-soon.

Foot note: Achroma's behavior pattern is based off the Phoenix Wright games, where the defendants keep bringing the weirdest stuff to the court.
