Part 2:


"Dammit!" He wanted to smash the Pokédex into the water, but didn't as Oak charged him a million when he did so the last time. It was custom built, and served as the data collector for manufacturing Pokédex for millions of trainers.

"Lapras, take me to the shore." The Pokémon nodded in response.

By the time he got back, Sebastian was waiting for him with a towel in his hands like the perfect butler he was. Where he procured the towel was everyone's guess.

"Thanks," he tossed him his wet, red shirt and took the towel.

Red impatiently sat down on a chair (which was also somehow procured by Sebastian), the wet towel draped over his shoulders.

He put his hands on his forehead and closed his eyes and remained silent for a long time. Sebastian did not disturb the silence either.

A police vehicle then pulled by, a couple of officers rushed in, "Did the ship leave?" They asked the perplexed Red.

Red raised his head and looked in the direction where the ship once was and looked at them.

"I am sorry," The police shook his head, "We'll send a search boat and—"

"You won't find them." Red said in a low voice, "My friend Jennifer snuck into their boat, her Goldbat will tell us their location soon."

"Y-Yes sir," The officer nodded understandingly, "Do we have to call on the Elite Four?"

He shot a glare at them that sent a shiver down their spine.

The officer stammered, "I mean sir, you seemed to have some bitter experience with those Plasma guys."

Red rose to his feet suddenly and hissed into the officer's face, "I am the f*cking champion of Kanto."

The officer said trying to put up a straight face, "I am aware of that, sir."

He sighed and walked away from the officer, "Plasma will find Jenny sooner or later, I am not going to wait till your Elite Four comes. But call them if you want."

'I need to heal my Pokémon first'

It was a bitter experience to him, to lose to Achroma not just once but twice. There were very few instances of him losing, in fact close to zero since he was crowned the champion.

He headed to the Pokémon center and handed his five Pokémon to Nurse Joy.

"Scizor and Lapras need some time to recover," Nurse Joy said.

Stopping a car at a Rotom-boosted-speed wasn't easy even for the powerful Scizor and so was getting tortured by fifteen Magnemite with a dangerous combo of Metal Sound and a super-effective attack for Lapras.

"What about Charizard?"

"He will be fine, I will heal him first."

Red waited outside the Pokémon Center waiting for Jenny's Goldbat. It was a wise move by Jenny. If not for that Pokémon—Genesect, he should at least go to save Jennifer.

"Sir," the officer from earlier approached him. "I called Shauntal. They will be coming here in an hour or so."

Red was staring into the sky, the blue colored Pokémon he waited till then finally appeared.

"I am sorry, I can't wait." He sent out Charizard, "If anything happens, I'll send my Charizard back in case I fall in trouble. I'll be counting on your league then, officer."

Although they were inefficient he had been too hard on the officer, it wasn't their fault to expect such an incident in a peaceful holiday spot.

The officer smiled in response, "Yes, sir. But I hope you don't face the situation."

He climbed the pseudo-dragon and flew towards the blue bat Pokémon, "Did they catch Jenny?" He asked the bat, with some hope. The Pokémon nodded a 'yes' in response.

"Fine," he frowned. "Lead the way, Goldbat."
---------------

We once again move to our dear Basculin brothers, who were now fishing by the forest side lake this time.

"Bro, how many Basculin did you get?" Asked the person with red stripes on his shirt.

"Three, what about you?" The blue stripes guy replied.

"Four. Dammit! We need to catch more Basculin."

"Yes, we shall catch a shiny Basculin this time. The flying saucer we saw in the morning is our sign of luck. What do you say?"

The other didn't reply.

"What is it bro?" He asked noticing that the other was silent. His face was pale, and the fishing rod in his hand was shaking in fear.

"What's wrong?" The blue stripe looked in the direction the other pointed. At once his heart skipped a beat. Standing before him was one of the fiercest and scariest creature they have ever seen. And that is saying something as they loved Basculin.

The beast had large and round yellow eyeballs, a crooked face that reminds you of the ugliest creatures from fantasy movies. Its body was completely orange with dark-brown mud like spots. A white beard covered from one ear to the other, and white fur covered each of its four paws. Its tail was rugged with red-swollen bites that resembled bug bites albeit king-sized. The most ferocious part was the two fangs that protruded out of its mouth.

It was a face that could give you nightmares for the rest of your lives when you see it up close.

The beast eyed the Basculin brothers for a second and then lunged towards the hills. It came here picking up the scent of its long-dead adversary but the Pokémon's scent magically disappeared at Undella Bay, the scent seemed to reappear from somewhere beyond the hills. The beast didn't know that beyond the hills was the P-2 laboratory.

-------------


"Awesome job, Goldbat." Red applauded the Pokémon. They were indeed above the ship which was currently docked in some small water body. If anyone hadn't known its flying capabilities they would be scratching their heads as to how there was a ship in the middle of nowhere.

The Charizard and the trainer carefully watched the ship from a distance. There were a couple of grunts here and there but the ship wasn't heavily guarded.

"You stay here okay?" The pseudo-dragon nodded in response.

He silently landed on the port side and snuck into the one of the two open doors. The door led him into a large but empty room that led to many cabins. Unable to find any other doors he was about to get back when a grunt came out of one of the cabin doors.

"Stupid warps, always confusing." He shouted at something inside the room and walked out through the main door.

'Warps?' He hasn't heard that name ever since his adventure in Silph & Co.

He proceeded into the empty room silently and noticed a big green portal that once gave him nightmares back in Kanto.

Praying that he wouldn't end up in the wrong place he stepped on the green portal.

SWOOSH

Before he realised what happened, he was in a similar room except a Plasma grunt was staring at him with a cereal bowl in his hand.

"Hi." He grinned sheepishly.

"Hello," the Plasma grunt greeted back and immediately swung his right arm at Red.

He ducked the punch and smashed the Plasma against the wooden post that supported the beds.

The dizzy grunt then attempted to take out a Pokéball which Red promptly kicked. He then hit the grunt against the wooden post again, this time harder.

The Plasma fell down unconscious and blood trickling down his forehead.

"Man, I wish I did that to Team Rocket." He was ten back then.

He then looked around to find another warp other than the one he came in.

After what seemed like an endless cycles of warps and fighting Plasma grunts he finally came to the last room which had one more warp. That was the only warp he hadn't got in yet. He must have beaten at least five Plasma grunts by hand and few others who seemed to be physically stronger than him with his Machamp.

With a deep breath, and a Pokéball ready in his arms he stepped on the final wrap.

The final wrap led to a room with a small cell attached to it. The cell contrary to his expectations was empty.

"We moved her" A red-headed woman was sitting on a chair one leg crossed over the other.

"Where is she?" Red asked seriously, now with the ego-boost that he has beat few Plasma grunts.

The red headed woman stood up, removed her gloves and walked towards him, "Why don't you try to find it out," She said stretching her legs in what seemed a fighting pose.

"Look, I don't like to hit women," Red said taking a cautious step back.

She then suddenly spun about her right leg and kicked him on his head right out of consciousness. "But I do like hitting men."

"I was supposed to hold him back?" She smiled over the unconscious Red. "I guess I am too good."
----------------------


The next thing he knew Red was in a small room, along with Jenny.

"Great." She rolled her eyes. "And here I expected you to save me."

"Where are we?" Red asked, still dazed.

"P2 Laboratories." She noticed that he was struggling to pull his hands that were to his back. "You are tied, moron." She stood up and kicked him. "Now wake up."

"Ow," he groaned in pain, "You didn't have to do that."

"You needed that to sober up."

"I am not drunk," he staggered to get up onto his feet and hit against the wall.

"I don't think so."

"Alright, now how are we supposed to get out?"

"Aim for the hinges, like they do in every movie and book."

"Right," his face brightened up. "I'll do that."

He took a step back, and charged at the door.

"By the way I forgot to mention—"

He hit the door only to be thrown back into the opposite wall in pain.

"—the door is electrified."

"You did that on purpose didn't you?"

"Of course." She smiled devilishly, "As for our escape route, there is a reason why I left my Goldbat before coming in."

"Cool! My Charizard is out there too!" He jumped excitedly.

"Do you honestly expect your Charizard to save you?" She looked at him as if he were a lost child.

"If I know correctly, your Charizard will make a frontal attack just like you and end up trapped. It's brain over brawn, Red."

"But—"Red began to protest.

"Ssh!" She silenced him and got as much closer to the door as possible; she could faintly hear some sort of commotion outside. "I think your Charizard began its work." She said.

Red opened his mouth to say something and closed it again, and sighed. She was correct after all.

She stayed for some time in that position as if she were expecting something.

"Eek." She heard someone exclaim in surprise and then came a gunshot. "Yep, my Goldbat is here."

She waited till the flapping grew louder, "Goldbat!" She shouted.

A Pokémon's cry came in response brightening Jenny's face. "Goldbat search for our Pokémon belts and being them here." She stressed the word belt for the Pokémon.

The Pokémon made a sound that seemed like a 'yes' to her.
-----------------------

Ever since that Pokémon barged in everybody were running helter-skelter. Her prized Seviper was burned to oblivion in just one hit. And now everybody was using their Magneton and Magnemite to constrict it.

"Bob, get it from behind, you dumbass!" Being the only admin left in what remained of Team Plasma she had to cope up with hundred useless grunts. "Bill, not you! You stay to the left."

"Bob, when I mean get from behind, it doesn't mean you need to get from behind!" Her nerves were cracking, her voice tired from screaming, "Send your Magneton!"

She was orchestrating a combined Thunderwave with the help of a Magneton formation. It was a good plan to deal with the beastly Charizard except the grunts were utterly dumb.

"I give up." She threw her arms into the air, "I'll get that damn Rotom," She turned around and suddenly a blue blur swooped past her and the next instant the belts in her hand were missing.
----------------------------

"You're back!Thank goodness!" Jenny wanted to hug her Goldbat immediately but couldn't as there was electrified door between them.

"Red, which of your Pokémon is the best for breaking the door."

"Machamp." Red replied.

"Good, Goldbat send Red's Machamp out!"

She heard the bird settling down the ground and struggle to open the ball, "Press the button in the center, it's the lock."

They heard a familiar 'pop' sound.

Red jumped excitedly and shouted, "Machamp use Dynamic Punch on the—" Before he finished his sentence the steel door was sent flying onto his face.

"Oh, god." Jenny hit her forehead, "Why were you standing there, idiot?"

The Machamp hunched and struck its head inside, observed the contents of the room, realised that someone was under the door and gently removed it with two of its arms. "Champ?" The Pokémon wondered if he was okay.

"Untie my rope," he pointed his back to the Pokemon. The Pokemon tore the rope like a piece of paper and threw it away. It then did the same to Jenny.

"Thanks, Machamp." She smiled at the Pokemon. "Red, what's wrong?" She said noticing him stagger.

"I am fine." He struggled to get up.

"Oh god, you are not!" Jenny exclaimed.

"What do you mean?" He asked, and then a drop of blood fell on the floor.

"You're bleeding!" She cried as blood trickled down his forehead.

"Oh," he tried touching the injury and winced slightly, "This is nothing let's go."

"Wait!" She walked out into the corridor and looked around. She pulled out the shirt off a unconscious grunt and held up in the air, "Goldbat use Air Cutter on this."

The Pokémon nodded and flapped its wings in an X-shape. The shirt immediately tore into pieces.

She then tied the cloth around Red's injury. "Now that's better."

Red speechlessly watched her for some time. "What?" She asked in concern.

"No," he shook his head, "Nothing, let's go."

They followed down the corridor into what seemed the main hall; the scene before them was a pleasant surprise.
------------

Charizard stood alone between a gang of trembling grunts and fainted Magneton, Drapion and Liepard.

"Gotta give credit where it's due, your brawn power worked out fine too."

Red puffed his chest proudly.

"Now let's get that Achroma guy." She said, to which Red nodded.

"That is as far as you get." A calm voice said.

Achroma, with the red book in his hand and his Admin Angel were standing on the first floor. "That's a fine dialogue, isn't it?" He said closing the book.

"Hey what's there in that stupid book?" Red asked, "Why do you keep reading it?"

"That," he stroked his chin and gave him a toothy smile, "Is something I am not about to reveal. What I am about to reveal is," he said walking down the stairs along with the admin, "The power of my Creation."

He turned around and raised both of his arms as if he were praying some god in the sky, "I introduce to you, Genesect 2.0."

Their attention was grabbed by a thumping noise as the silhouette of a Pokémon slowly took shape from the shadows.

Their eyes widened in surprise, "That's—"

"Genesect 2.0," Achroma said like it was a T.V commercial, "Upgraded with the new A.I that controls the thinking part of the original Pokémon's brain making it a perfect robot, an anti-security system that prevents it from attacking its owner and also prioritizing his life over its, and lastly not to mention the most prominent feature, as you see on its head is the newly fitted Techno Blast Canon."

It was true, in addition to the Pokémon's already oversized head, there was a huge purple bazooka sticking on its head. The bazooka was struck to its neck making it move in harmony with the head.

"Of course, I was about to add few drives like The Aqua Cassette but my dear admin informed me that a certain Charizard was destroying my beautiful garden."

"You know what," Jenny spoke, "You are a sick weirdo."

The smile on his face vanished suddenly, "Uh oh." Red muttered unconsciously.

"Unfortunately I can't take criticism well, especially from women." He turned to the purple creature, "Genesect, get rid of these pests from my beautiful garden."

He turned back to Red and Jenny with a fake smile, which was evidently destroyed by the frown on his face, "Isn't that ironic. Asking a bug-type to get rid of the pests?"

"Ironic, my foot!" Red gritted, "Machamp, Dynamic Punch!"

The four-armed creature jumped up the stairs onto the first floor in just two leaps and threw a dynamic punch at Genesect.

"Techno blast." He ordered it calmly as if it were morning coffee.

Genesect blocked the Dynamic punch with a single hand and pushed back the startled Machamp with the same hand, the canon on its head glowed creating a sphere of energy.

A powerful beam shot out of the canon, it struck the Machamp and blew it away like a feather. The beam blazed past the startled trainers, blew up the already destructed façade of the lab into smithereens and shot past their line of vision.

A large trail of mud formed that went along a perfect straight line as far as their eyes could see.

Everyone in that building with the exception of Achroma watched the destruction with open mouths. Even Achroma was surprised by the impact, but if he did show it, he wouldn't be the cool Professor he was, so he didn't.

"Ahem," he called for their attention, "That my friends, is the marvelous power of my dear, Genesect."

Instead of the applause Achroma expected, a deadly silence followed.

"I suppose that satisfied my ego a bit." The smile returned to his face.

"Red," Jenny held his hand, "You gotta beat it or we're toast."

Red looked at her with a pale face, "How can anyone beat that?"

"Based on what he said," she whispered, "It's a Bug-and-Steel Type."

Red glanced at Charizard, the Pokémon nodded as if it were ready.

"Fine, I guess this is my duty, considering I am a champion."

He turned to the fire-type, "Flamethrower!" The pseudo-dragon took into the sky and shot the flames at Genesect.

"Genesect, Techno Blast!" The Pokémon raised its head, its canon facing the incoming flamethrower and shot the powerful beam.

The beam shot past the flamethrower obliterating it. Noticing the attack destroying its own, Charizard ducked to the side the attack went grazing past it, but the power was enough to throw it out of balance and sent it crashing to the ground. The Techno-blast was shot into the distant sky.

The Fire-Lizard Pokémon stood up rubbing its head; its pride was deeply hurt by the exchange.

Achroma said with his eyes closed, enjoying the moment, "The most wonderful part of Techno Blast is it doesn't need recharging unlike hyper-beam."

"Once more please." He ordered for seconds.

The canons were aimed in the direction where Red and Jenny were standing as Charizard was directly behind them. "Wait!" Red screamed, "The impacts will get your men too."

"Oh," Achroma removed his glasses and wiped them clean with a cloth, "I suppose it does." He raised them into the air to see if there was any dust left, "So what?"

"Achroma!" The Admin beside him was the first to react with a violent surprise.

"What?" He asked as if there was nothing wrong with it, "They were never useful in the first place. Now, Genesect."

"Red!" Jenny jerked his arm violently. The Pokémon prepared its canon to fire at them.

"Damn you, Achroma!" Red threw a Pokéball, "Golem, Protect!"

The blinding beam approached them just when the Pokéball materialized into a large boulder-shaped Pokémon. The Pokémon immediately created a green barrier.

The beam proved too powerful, it pushed the barrier along with the Pokémon back immediately.

"Not this way!" Jenny exclaimed, the boulder Pokémon hit against the two trainers who were pushed back along with the Golem. Soon a couple of grunts were pulled into the fray too. They all somehow managed to hold the ground and supported Golem from falling down, which would have immediately spell their doom like an ace student.

The Protect, thanks to the combined muscle power of ten grunts, a Jenny and a Red, and of course the Golem that created it seemed to hold the ground against the beam.

Their happiness didn't stay long, the green barrier immediately started to crack like a piece of glass under pressure.

"We are so dead!" A grunt cried.

"Charizard!" Red shouted.

With a loud roar Charizard jumped into the air and struck out a powerful Flamethrower in Genesect's direction.

"Genesect, get out of the way!" Achroma for once lost his cool.

The bug Pokémon stopped the lethal Techno Blast immediately and flew into the air just in time.

"Don't let it go, Flare blitz!"

The pseudo-dragon charged at the flying bug, shrouded in a blue inferno.

"Dodge it, please." Achroma said, gathering some composure.

Charizard's charge was barely dodged by Genesect which flew away into the open sky, increasing the distance from Charizard.

"Good, now Techno Blast!"

"Don't let it go! Follow!"

Genesect began to charge ball of energy, but Charizard was already reaching for it.

'Auto-defense Command: Change of Orders.'

Genesect suddenly stopped the attack and flew above Charizard farther into the air.

"What the heck!"

"Good heavens." Achroma wiped the sweat off his face.

"I must hand it to you, Red. To use the brief little time for Techno Blast's charge to your advantage. You are the better trainer of the two of us, after all. Unfortunately for you, my Genesect is equipped with an Auto-defense mode that protects it from attacks that it cannot survive."

"I call Bull-****!" Red swung his fist in the air.

'Initiating Auto Battle Mode.'

"Charizard, watch out!" Jenny exclaimed.

Genesect pointed its smaller guns and fired off a Thunderbolt which when dodged by Charizard struck two grunts on the ground.

"Oh, crap." Red cursed.

The grunts realizing their lives were of no value decided to run away from the battlefield.

"The only correct thing they have done in their careers." Achroma broke a wry smile.

"Achroma," Angel looked at him with all the disgust in the world, "You're a terrible sick bastard."

"Oh, I sense a rebellion." Achroma smiled back, the three Magnemite encircled her. "I wonder what I should do."

She spit on his face, "Clean that."

"You have not done a wise thing." He wiped his face and glassed with a cloth as the Magnemite trapped her with Thunderwave. "Take care of her."

"Acrobatics!" A blue blur struck the three Magnemite in succession knocking them out. Jenny's Goldbat cried victoriously over the three fainted Magnemite.

And then a powerful lightning struck the Pokémon. The Goldbat now crisped, fell to the ground.

"Good Job, Magnezone." The Magnet Pokémon slowly hovered between Achroma and Jennifer who decided it was better to do something than watch the battle helplessly.

"Alright, then." She enlarged two Pokéball, "I may not be the best Pokémon trainer, but I can sure beat you," She tossed either Pokéball into the air, "Come out, Fur ball, Electric Monster!"
------------

Meanwhile the fighting between Charizard and Genesect was getting tiresome for the Pseudo-Dragon as the latter didn't show any signs of exhaustion.

Charizard swiftly passed between two pillars of Thunderbolt and swerved around to pull a flamethrower. The Genesect dived to the right and prepared for a Techno Blast. Charizard immediately distanced itself to dodge the attack without a scrape.

It then charged in with a Flare Blitz to which it responded with another Thunderbolt. Skillfully dodging the Thunderbolt that constantly changed directions as Genesect pleased, it managed to get close to the bug Pokémon.

But once again the auto-defense mechanism made it dodge the attack. But Red was prepared this time, he then ordered a flamethrower onto the flying Genesect. The Pokémon shrouded in the blue inferno put a brake to itself and shot a flamethrower at Genesect.

The Auto-defense mechanism activated for a third time. The attack being unavoidable forced Genesect to respond with an Ice beam. The collision between the fire and Ice created a vapor that blocked either Pokémon's vision.

"This is your chance, grab it."

The Fire type Pokémon passed through the fumes and grabbed the insect Pokémon.

"Alright!" Red exclaimed.

'So the auto-defense mechanism doesn't work for moves that can't cause severe damage.' He thought.

"Toss it away!"

Charizard held onto the insect Pokémon tightly, but the Pokémon charged in a Techno Blast and tried to hit Charizard.

"Change its aim!"

Charizard grabbed Genesect by its shoulders and twisted its body immediately. The beam was shot out in some other direction far into the sky.

"Toss it!"

Holding onto Genesect's shoulders Charizard performed a ring-around and threw it towards the ground.

"Let's see how you'll dodge this, Flare blitz!"

Charizard immediately dashed behind the falling Genesect.

The Pokémon landed on its four limbs with huge impact, but the fire-lizard was already at its back.

"Finish it!"

And then a green barrier popped between the two Pokémon followed by an explosion.

"Charizard!"

The pseudo-dragon bounced of the barrier like a ball and landed with a loud thud. The tables have been turned; Genesect was now on its feet while Charizard was struggling to hold its ground.

Red clenched his fists and gritted his teeth as he was helpless when the thought struck him.

"Golem, Rock Blast!" He forgot he had another Pokémon on the standby.

Golem jumped eagerly to return the favor from the Techno Blast earlier. It opened its mouth and shot a series of rocks from its mouth, each with the same power as a bazooka.

Genesect was taken by surprise; it turned around just in time to cover itself with its two hands crossed over each other in a defensive stance. It took the first two hits with bare hands, and then between the second and third hits, its body froze into a color akin to an iron bar. The rest of the attacks bounced off like a ball that hit a concrete wall. The attack was Iron defense.

"Just how many attacks can it use?" Red asked infuriated. "Golem, Magnitude!" He hoped that a surprise attack from the ground would serve well. Genesect however aimed its guns at Golem and shot a powerful Ice beam before the Golem could even lift a leg.

"Golem!" The Pokémon rolled over, unconscious. He instinctively took the Pokémon back into the Pokéball.

Red collapsed on his knees, losing any hope. He might be a champion but the Pokémon was beyond him. It wasn't a joke when Professor Oak said there were people who wanted to create the world's strongest Pokémon.

The Pokémon slowly approached his Charizard with cold steps of steel. It lifted Charizard's muzzle with one gun and aimed its Techno Blast canon at it.

Only a miracle could save him, Red thought.

And then came the miracle.
-----------------

"Fur ball, Hyper voice. Electric monster, Electro Ball."

On the other side, Jenny was holding her own. Fur ball, her Jigglypuff took in a deep breath and then let out a powerful scream dislodging the Magnemite of their synchronous movements. While Electric Monster, her Pikachu prepared a ball of electricity and flung it at the Magnezone.

But some of the Magnemite recovered from the attack and performed a Thunderwave on the two Pokémon.

"Hyper Voice!"

Which the Jigglypuff broke immediately.

"Not bad," Achroma mustered a smile. "But in the end, none of this matters after all. It will be my win."

She raised an eyebrow questioningly maintaining the serious expression, "You see, dear," he said. "Even if you manage to beat me, my dear Genesect will finish you. As you see even the Champion seems to be unable to hold it back."

Jennifer turned around; much to her astonishment Red's Charizard was being held under Genesect's grip.

"It's time to spell the words. G-A-M-E-O-V-E-R." He dropped into fits of laughter musing at his own dialogue.

And then out of nowhere an orange blur leapt out of nowhere and pounced on Genesect.
------------------

It all happened in an instant, in front of Red's eyes. A beast pounced on Genesect. The Genesect thanks to its artificial sensors turned in the last second and blocked the beast's claws with its arms.

The Pokémon's weight threw the Genesect on its back, the two Pokémon skid on Genesect's back. The beast jumped off Genesect and landed at a safe distance from the Pokémon.

The onlookers remained frozen in their tracks, as the beast slowly circled around Genesect waiting for the said Pokémon to get up.

Red and Jenny simultaneously took out their Pokédex, "Therian Landorus Forme: Type Ground/ Flying."

"I should have expected this to happen," Achroma appeared to be in deep thought. "The Mushiyo is after all, Landorus's greatest enemy."

"Eh?" Jenny looked at him expecting an explanation.

"Hmm," he smirked at her, stroking his chin. "You're curiosity has been aroused by that statement, isn't it?"

"Shut up." She cut him off like an annoying bug.

"Ah, you can pretend all day, but the fact that you're curious is a fact. And facts cannot be—"

A blood-curdling roar shook the lives out of the two. Even the Pokémon shuddered in fear and released whatever attacks they were performing.

Genesect was finally on its feet, and apparently the Therian Landorus gave it an invitation for battle.

Jenny saw Red and Charizard backing off in fear from the Landorus's roar. If it had scared those two, it could definitely send those with weak-hearts back to the stars.

"Hiyeaah!" And suddenly Angel jumped out of nowhere and gave Achroma a rolling kick.

He got up holding his jaw, "Magnezone, Magnemite get her!" Achroma screamed.

"Fur Ball, Hyper voice!" Jenny jumped into action. The Jigglypuff performed the ear-piercing cry and put the Magnet Pokémon at bay.

"Electric Monster, Electro ball!"

The powerful electric ball attack one again was pitched at the Magnezone, but this time a couple of brave Magnemite moved forward and took the hit and dropped dead (not literally).

The Magnezone furious at its minions demise performed a Flash Canon on the Pokémon.

The exchange of moves once again ensued.

Meanwhile, with the Magnet Pokémon occupied in fighting Fur Ball and Electric Monster, Angel slowly stepped forward towards Achroma.

She said with a furious look on her face, "You're so dead, Achroma."

"You forget that I have another Pokémon?" He said trying to look as calm as he was till then.

"I do, but before you can as much as twitch your hand, I'll break your neck."

"That would be troublesome. I want my neck."

"Acting all mighty, huh." She slowly walked towards him.

"I am not acting," The smirk on his face returned, "I am mighty. Did you not hear what I have said earlier? Genesect would put its life over mine. Which means—" He noticed the growing fear in Angel's eyes.

Seconds passed but nothing happened. Achroma realized that he was in trouble.
------------

"What's going on?" Red muttered.

Therian Landorus was still waiting for its opponent to move, but Genesect's eyes were flickering with a red light like a car's backlight.

'Master in Trouble. Requesting immediate action.'

Red swung his head to Achroma, Angel has cornered him while Jenny was putting the Magnet Pokémon at bay.

But the Genesect much to his surprise was struggling to not turn back.

"What the heck?" He muttered.

It was refusing Achroma's command, was the fight with Landorus more important?

As if to answer his question, Genesect lunged at Therian Landorus with a screechy insect-like cry he never heard before.
----------------------

"Looks like you're in soup," Angel said taking her battle stance.

"Ah, dammit. Is a five-hundred year old rivalry so important than my life?" He shouted at no one in particular.

"But I haven't lost yet." His hand went for the Pokéball in his suit, but Angel's leg struck his arm.

"Argh." He cried in pain, as his hand came tearing out of his pocket, a book and a Pokéball fell on the ground.

"My Pokéball," he reached for it, only to receive a kick on his face.
--------------------

The spectacular battle started before his eyes. It was a fight that even the Champion of Kanto himself felt awed.

Genesect lunged at a great speed, the guns on its arms, much to his surprise, transformed into two blades which it cut against the Landorus in an X-shape.

But the Landorus backed up a step just in time and threw its claws to rake the bug-type. The bug-type performed a dance like twist and tried to hit the Therian forme with its sharp and glowing blades.

Landorus ducked below the blade, but the second blade followed it to strike it down. With an agile albeit powerful movement, Landorus twisted its neck and caught the second blade in its jaws.

Genesect immediately responded by attacking with its left-blade, but the Therian pulled Genesect's right arm and tossed it away before the attack could even make contact.

Before Genesect even landed on the ground, Landorus stood on its hind legs and smashed its front paws against the ground with immense power.

The ground began to shake as if it were an earthquake; a fissure appeared on the ground, and like a snake it dashed its way towards Genesect.

"Earth Power." Red muttered.

But Genesect gave it a steady response, the Rocket on its back burst into flames. Before the attack reached Genesect, the said Pokémon was already in the air.

Landorus sprinted and propelled its way into the sky only to give Genesect a powerful Head-butt on its chest.

Genesect toppled by the impact finally balanced itself after moving a good ten meters away from Landorus.

"Wait, how is that possible?" Red said looking at Landorus with his mouth wide open in surprise.

While he expected Landorus to fall down after hitting Genesect, it simply stayed in the air on its four legs as if there was an invisible surface.

And then Jenny screamed. "Red! Stop gawking and help us!"
---------------------

Achroma cursed in pain, his left-hand seemed broken; thanks to the women's kick his spectacles were thrown somewhere far away.

"You wretched woman!" He screamed. "You forget whom you are dealing with." He gritted his teeth.

"Stop your nonsense, Achroma. You have lost." She said stepping on his chest.

Despite all that, there was a grin on his face.

Meanwhile Jenny was finally done with the overdose of Magnemite and Magnezone. Her Jigglypuff and Pikachu panted because of exhaustion.

"You guys were awesome," she patted either Pokémon's soft heads.

She then turned to Angel and Achroma.

"What is he saying now?" She asked Angel.

"He still thinks he can win."

"I don't just think, I know." He said with gritted teeth, "That Landorus won't be able to defeat Genesect. It's just a matter of time; Genesect will again return to my command and snap your heads in half."

"What if I kill you before that?" Angel stomped on him causing him to groan in pain.

"There is something you should know about my Rotom." He said with a devilish grin, despite the pain.

"Uh oh," Jenny said looking to the right where the Rotom's Pokéball was lying. The ball slowly levitated, it was filled with a purplish aura, and then two eyes appeared on the Pokéball. The eyes looked at Achroma for a second and then looked at the two girls. A plasmatic bulb came out of the ball, the ball then dropped to the ground lifelessly.

"Thanks for making me scream, my Rotom wouldn't have heard us otherwise." He pushed Angel's leg off his chest and stood up.

The Rotom slowly hovered by Achroma's side. Both Angel and Jenny slowly backed away from the duo with a terrified look in their eyes.

Jenny nervously looked at her Pokémon, her eyes still to the Rotom. The Pokémon understanding the gravity of the situation stood between their trainer and the Rotom.

Either Pokémon growled at the Rotom angrily. Jenny gathered her courage, "Fur ball, Hyper voice, Electric Monster, Electro ball."

Jigglypuff took a deep breath and let out the Hyper-voice, while Pikachu simultaneously prepared the Electro ball and pitched it at the Rotom.

The Rotom remained unfazed by the Hyper-voice and the Electro ball did not as much as even budge it.

"Discharge."

The Rotom closed its eyes and let out a powerful discharge of electricity that zapped either Pokémon.

"Fur ball, Electric Monster!" Jennifer exclaimed out of concern. The two Pokémon fell to their backs fainted.

"Now, it's really Game Over." He said pointing his thumb down.

"Now it's my turn to threaten you." He said taking a step closer.

And that's when Jennifer turned around and noticed Red watching the battle with an open-mouth, "Red! Stop gawking and help us!"
---------------------

"Jenny?" Red turned around; Jenny and the Plasma Admin were being threatened by Achroma and Rotom. "Oh, holy old Miltank! Charizard stop him!"

The flying Charizard fired the projectile attack immediately. Rotom dodged the distant attack with ease.

Both the trainer and his Charizard then approached them.

"Achroma, stop this hell now. Everybody is having this pointless battling because of you."

"This isn't pointless," He protested. "This is a struggle between good and bad. I, the good researcher and you, the bad kid who destroys my beautiful dreams!"

"But," He added, his hand searching for something inside his pocket. "I have my tools prepared for you." He took out something the size of a capsule. He pointed the capsule to Rotom; the Pokémon stooped forward and gulped it.

"What is that?"

"One of my inventions." He said as Rotom gulped down the capsule, "It lets Rotom change its form without possessing any other external device." The Plasma bulb Pokémon then suddenly started to transform.

"Behold!" He raised his single hand, "The form most appropriate for Charizard, Rotom-Wash forme."

It was much like what Achroma said, the Pokémon now greatly resembled a miniature washing machine in shape and structure.

Achroma continued his monologue, "Dumbfounded aren't you? Guess what its type is now, a hint: It starts with W."

"A Water type?" Red asked, as if he made the discovery of the century.

"Yes, and watch this, Rotom—Hydropump."

Rotom pointed what should have been the exit pipe of a washing machine and let out a huge torrent of water.

"Dodge!" Red screamed.

He was too late; the torrent of water struck the Pokémon right on its chest crashing onto the rubble that remained of the lab's façade.

"Oh, this is bad." Jenny couldn't resist not saying that.

The Rotom hovered above the Pokémon and grinned mischievously.

Charizard slowly cleaned off the rubble on it chest and slowly got up to its feet.

"This is it."

Everybody's attention shifted to Red.

"I am tired of losing, again and again!" He shouted with clenched fists.

Charizard firmly planted itself between its trainer and Rotom, sharing the same passion in its eyes.

"Now Charizard, let's show what happens when we get pissed off."

The Pokémon stretched its wings and let out a large roar, the flames on its tail grew larger and larger till it grew as large as the Pokémon itself.

"Now, Charizard. Show them what you are made up of!"
------------------------

The spectacular battle between Genesect and Landorus now continued unnoticed, neither Pokémon were particularly bothered by it because the only thing they wanted was crushing the other.

The battle field was filled with pillars of ice, which were proofs of Genesect's failed attempts in using Ice beam. Landorus displayed extreme caution while facing that particular attack as it knew from years of experience how lethal it is.

However the beast couldn't fathom how Mushiyo was capable of such attacks. Five hundred years ago, it remembered when Landorus himself fossilized it in an unnatural way; it lacked any such moves other than the Bug-type moves. But the Mushiyo now was different, it lacked the natural grace, but in exchange it was now performing a wide array of attacks.

Landorus for the umpteenth time charged at Genesect, both Pokémon had a lot of stamina left and if the battle continued in the same way, the battle would have gone for hours.

The Therian forme pounced at Genesect in an attempt to crunch the guns which were releasing the Ice-type move; Genesect understanding its opponent's motive took a step back to dodge its jaws and planned to hit an Ice beam with its right gun. But Landorus prepared for such move entangled the second gun in its tail and tossed Genesect into the air.

It then jumped into the air catching up with it and performed an earth power straight on Genesect's chest.

As if hit by Thor's hammer, Genesect banged straight into the ground, the impact throwing it at least two feet below the ground level.

That was when Landorus made the big mistake.

Seeing Genesect in the most vulnerable state, the Therian forme decided to finish it for once with a powerful finishing move, the Giga Impact.

Its body was surrounded by a purple vortex of energy as the Pokémon went down to strike the deeply buried Genesect like a meteor.

The legendary Pokémon couldn't expect the wonders of Achroma's invention to then activate.

'Auto-defense Mechanism Activated.'

The purple vortex was then blocked by a sudden wall of green. It was an unnatural move as Genesect itself still lay on the ground helplessly. It couldn't have been able to use the move in time if it weren't for the Auto-defense Mechanism.

Landorus recoiled by the impact fell limp on the ground.

Genesect slowly rose from the ground, its red eyes focused on Landorus.

'Injury to the Chest: 62% functioning left.'

Loose wires dangled out from Genesect's chest, they occasionally sparkled with a purple color.

It lowered its head, its canon fixed on Landorus. Wheels whirred inside its body, and at once the charge collected into the canon on its head.
-----------------------

Meanwhile the fight between Rotom and Charizard started as Red and Charizard went into a fit of rage. The cool and calm Achroma decided that his victory was confirmed owing to the type-advantage.

Charizard let out an extremely powerful flamethrower from its mouth to which Rotom replied with a dousing Hydropump.

The Hydropump overpowering the flamethrower moved on hit Charizard once again, but the Pokémon didn't as much as flinch but it used one more flamethrower.

Despite being not-very-effective, much to Achroma's dismay the attack did significant damage.

And then, "Hydropump, again!"

Rotom aimed its water pipe at Charizard again but—

"Grab it." Red commanded.

Charizard with its superior speed immediately grabbed onto the Pokémon's pipe preventing the water-type move from hitting it again.

"Foolish move." Achroma said with a smirk, "Discharge!"

The electricity convulsed into Charizard's body, causing the Pokémon to wither in pain.

"I can play the game too, Flare blitz!"

"What?" Achroma was baffled by the reckless command.

Charizard let out a loud roar as a blue-inferno engulfed its body and the Rotom at the same time.

The combined effect of the blue inferno and the yellow discharge competed over each other for supremacy with either Pokémon screaming in pain and determination at the same time, but then the attacks ended up in an explosion.

A grey smoke enveloped the onlooker's vision, followed by a large thud and a small one. The smoke cleared out revealing a Charizard balancing itself on its knees and a fainted Rotom.

"B-But how?" Achroma looked at it the scene as if he has just seen a horror movie.

"This is how I battle." Red clenched his fists in victory.

"I-I will not accept this," Achroma's voice shook, "I-I haven't lost yet."

"Damn you kids!" He banged his fist against the ground, "First it's those two kids that ruined Ghetsis plan not just once but twice, and now you!"

He banged his fist repeatedly, "Why can't you let us win for a change!"

Red looked at him with an expression of pity, "Now he's gone insane."

"He's always been insane." Jenny pointed out.

"I wonder what happened to that battle," Red turned, and then saw the horrific scene.
-------------------

Genesect prepared its Techno blast to end the battle once for all.

'System damage to the chest, aborting the attack.'

The Techno blast seemed to fade out, but then glowed with power again.

'Aborting the attack failed. Reason: Biological interference.'

The Techno blast was released sending Landorus to oblivion. But the two wires dangling from Genesect's chest proved to be fatal for the Pokémon.

Genesect screamed in shock, purple electricity enveloping its body. The red lights on Genesect started to fade. Smoke came out of the Pokémon's broken chest. It then dropped on its knee and finally hit the ground, face first.

Red, Jenny and Angel stared at the Pokémon in shock and surprise.

"M-My perfect Pokémon!" Achroma screamed.

"It wasn't so perfect." Red said dreamily, "You underestimated the power of legendary Pokémon."

Achroma gave him a sneering look, "It wouldn't have happened, if it hadn't used Techno blast. If it were under my A.I's control it would have used Ice beam instead."

"And isn't that your failure?" Jenny gave him a stern look.

"I-It's just an improbable coincidence. Landorus shouldn't have come here!"

"Accept your defeat, moron." Angel said almost kicking him.

He caught his forehead and shook his head helplessly, "I-I know!" His eyes shone brightly, "Rotom!" He barked the plasma bulb to wake up.

"Get inside Genesect!" The Plasma Pokémon nodded hesitatingly and shot itself towards Genesect.

"Charizard stop it!" Red cried, if the Genesect were to rise again they will be doomed.

The pseudo-dragon immediately chased the Rotom but they were too late. By the time Charizard caught up with it Rotom was already inside Genesect.

Charizard stopped dead in its tracks as the violent sparks of electricity convulsed through the Pokémon's body.

The purple creature slowly started whirring with energy again; its body was slowly enveloped by a reddish color.

"I-It transformed into—Red Genesect?" Jenny wondered.

!

"What the heck is that?"

The Red-Genesect struggled to move its limbs, powerful electricity discharging everywhere out of its body.

"What's going on?" Jenny asked, worried.

The discharge grew larger and larger and suddenly shot the Charizard zapping the Pokémon immediately.

"Charizard!" Red sprinted forward.

"Idiot!" Jenny caught him by his shirt, "Use your Pokéball!"

A red-ray of light absorbed the Pokémon back.

!

The Pokémon cried again, the discharge only grew larger and larger and slowly crept in all directions.

"What have you done?" Angel caught Achroma by his collar.

He watched the Red-Genesect's powerful electricity coming towards them and looked at her with a pale face, "I have done a mistake."

She looked at him with all the ferocity in her eyes, "The portal, gimme the freaking portal!"

"No, I won't." He backed away from her, but she grabbed him by the collar and punched him.

"I don't care about your stupid toy! Gimme the portal before that thing kills us!"

He hesitatingly took a sphere from his pocket and tossed the metal sphere away at a distance. The sphere transformed into a blue circle.

"Good," she smiled, "I am going to take that warp and get away into that boat while you die with those kids!" She ran towards the blue wrap which was a one-time only useful wrap with a specified exit location.

She ran towards the portal, the joy of saving her own life filled her. But—

*CLANG*

Something hard hit her on the back of her head.

"Stop it!" She heard the distant screams of Jenny and Red.

She turned around, Professor Achroma stood behind her with a blood-smeared Magnemite in his hand, he lifted the Magnemite again and rammed it into her face.

"You sick bastard!" Red shouted and ran after Achroma.

"Red!" Jenny exclaimed. She stumbled on a rock and fell down face first. The Red-Genesect's discharge was already reaching for her.

"Jenny!" Red ran after her and pulled her just in time.

He turned to the direction where Achroma was, the Professor was already missing and so was the blue-portal.

"Oh, crap." He groaned.

The two of them ran in the only direction they could to avoid the incoming danger, towards the destroyed lab.

The stairs to the first floor was broken leaving them a dead end.

"Is this it, Red?" Jenny looked at him. It was the end of the world for them.

Red looked at the incoming discharge and he realized she was correct, this was it.

"Jenny," he held onto her tightly, "It's now or never."

She looked at him, "What are you talking about?"

His face turned red much like his name, "I love you."

"Red," she looked at him in astonishment. She became teary eyed and hugged him tightly, the sparks of discharge now came closer destroying everything that was left of the room. "I love you too," she said amidst the rumbling noise.

They embraced each other even tightly and closed their eyes shut, the rumbling grew louder and louder.

Amidst the rumbling noise that made their heart beat faster and faster, they held onto each other, one comforting the other. Their hands joined, their knees touched, their heads resting on the shoulders of the other but their eyes remained closed—the fear of the approaching death.

And then the deafening noise stopped.

Red opened his eyes slowly and noticed that they were surrounded by a grey smoke. He quickly left her embrace and stepped back suddenly. Apparently she did the same.

He noticed her cheeks were red despite the grey smoke, he looked around, "Are we in heaven?" He asked.

"No, idiot." It didn't carry her usual force, "Heaven doesn't have pollution issues."

The grey smoke settled down and the bright sunlight enveloped what remained of the P2 laboratory which was basically nothing.

They walked out of the rubble; there were slight indications of discharge around them, "That stupid Professor really screwed us up."

"Yeah," she agreed. She looked down and realized that they were still holding hands. But she decided to leave it like that for now.

They walked slowly taking one step at a time. The smoke completely cleared out and before their eyes were three legendary Pokémon that lay on the ground unconscious.

"Wow." He muttered.

Landorus, Rotom, and a slightly battered Genesect lay on one other like friends in a sleepover.

"Landorus saved us." She said.

"Yeah," he sighed in relief. He then gently shook her hand away from his.

'Bzzzzzzt!'

A screeching sound startled them all of a sudden. The Genesect which seemed to be unconscious dug its blades onto the soft mud. It pushed itself against the ground to stand up.

Jenny instinctively grabbed Red's hand.

Genesect slowly rose to its feet, the rocket on its back separated out of its body and clanged to the ground. The red bulbs that were its eyes cracked into pieces revealing two red compound eyes. A purplish liquid oozed out of its abdomen and dripped to the ground, two pale wings protruded out of its back.

Red and Jenny backed slowly as the creature grew scarier in appearance.

It opened its mouth and hissed like an Ekans for the first time. It lifted its arms and clutched onto the Techno blaster on its head and felt it slowly.

"R-Red, do something." Jenny pleaded.

"I don't have any Pokémon left." He replied equally worried.

Then all of a sudden the sunlight disappeared. The creature turned around and noticed a huge object covering the sun.

"The Plasma ship—Achroma's getting away." Jenny said in an almost shrieking voice.

At the mention of then name Genesect swiftly turned its head towards them and hissed.

The couple shuddered and backed away nervously, "It's him." Jenny nervously pointed at the ship. "Achroma." She pointed at the ship again, "Achroma." She pointed again as if she were showing a lost-dog to its master.

The creature looked at her and then at the ship, and hissed something. And then it hissed angrily and turned around.

"Thank god," Jenny sighed.

The creature then let out a large bellow and clutched onto the Techno Blast. It carefully aimed the bazooka at the hull of the ship.

It was a magical moment for them, something that they wouldn't forget for the rest of their lives. A bright flash of light shot out of Genesect's canon, the bright light struck the ship and destroyed it into pieces as if it were cardboard. Pieces of wood, iron flew everywhere; the splinters spread out in every direction and landed on the ground in a shower of wood and iron.

The creature slowly flew towards the distant rubble, and looked around as if it was searching for something. Its search stopped when it noticed a white piece of cloth. The creature took the cloth into its hands and started raking the cloth, shredding it into pieces. It looked into the sky and gave out an insect-like cry.

"For his sake, I hope Achroma died in the blast." Red muttered.

"I hope we aren't in its list." Jenny said trembling.

The creature turned around to face them again.

"I think we are." Red said pressing her arm tightly.

The creature slowly walked towards them. It took one step at a time enjoying every drop of fear in their eyes. And then at once it prepared to jump when—

"Hypnosis!"

A Gengar appeared before their eyes. It instantly locked its eyes onto Genesect's eyes. In the next second, the creature fell down to the ground, face first.

Red and Jenny watched the unconscious Genesect with open mouths.

"Excuse me. I hope we are not late."

A young girl carrying a book approached them. She wore dark clothing which matched her hair.

"Unova is full of bookworms," Jenny stated.

"I have to agree with you," he said.

The girl looked at them questioningly, unable to comprehend what they meant.
--------------------

"Well, I guess thanks a lot." Red shook his hands with the huge man who wore a garland made up of Pokéball.

"No, we are the ones who should be grateful." He insisted.

"We captured the Rotom and stored it in a repository. Landorus was treated well and left into the wild." Shauntal said with a beaming smile.

"What about Genesect?" Jenny asked.

Alder and the Elite Four exchanged a glance, "Well," Shauntal said after a pause, "It may be hard for you to hear this but we dismantled the Pokémon."

"What?" She looked at them incredulous.

"But that's..." Jennifer began to protest.

"They're doing what's best Jenny," Red interrupted her, he turned to the two. "I understand as members of the League you have to make hard decisions, but can you guys see if you can do some modifications to it and return it back to a normal Pokémon?"

"We're looking into it, Red." Shauntal gave a reassuring smile.

"Thanks," Red said, "I want to spend the remainder of the vacations in peace."

"By the way, Red," Alder said, "Cynthia proposed me an idea few days ago, are you perhaps interested in a World Champion's league?"

He said without hesitating, "Of course I am."
---------------------

That night they were back in Undella, spending their time in the Undella beach.

"You were acting really mature in there," Jenny said.

"Really?"

"You handle Genesect's news well."

"Oh that, I just wanted to look cool before the Unova League. I heard Unovans think we Kanto people are old-fashioned."

"You're right," she giggled.

"Do you know what?" She said, "I think Achroma deserved that death."

"The funny thing? The Pokémon League checked his book, it was a plain one."

"You know what?" She said, "Screw him. Let's talk about us?"

"What about us?" He shrugged, "There is nothing between us."

"Oh, really? So who was the one who proposed me when we were about to die?"

"That's just your hallucination."

"The hugging too?"

"Yeah."

"Holding hands while coming out?"

"Yep."

"And the kiss?"

"Kiss?" He gave her a doubtful look, "Which kiss?"

"The one at the beach?"

He asked after a pause, "When did that happen?"

She smiled, moved close to him and whispered into his ears.

"Now."

A little backstory: I used the fact that Genesect was upgraded after being revived from a fossil. The original Pokemon was Mushiyo-which is just a combination of the Japanese words for Bug and King. It was originally meant to be the King of bugs known for destroying crops. Since Landorus is known for the fertility of soils and stuff, it was prayed upon by the people 500 years ago to fight Mushiyo. The fight ended up a draw, but Landorus using its ground-type powers fossilize it. Hence the rivalry between the two Pokemon.

I hope this was an enjoyable read. At least I wanted it to be.

Also do review it, if you have read it completely because reviews are always welcome.
