One day, a trainer just stops. He stops moving, he stops talking, he stops everything. They've seen this before and know their master tends to do this, sometimes for days on end.
Three years pass and their master hasn't awoken. They are naturally disturbed, trying to get him to do something, anything. The Pokemon's bonds with their human is tested, as years pass and wild Pokemon keep trying to kill their master for food. The psychic Pokemon says he has very little brain-wave activity, confirming that he is essentially a statue. As each Pokemon remember fond memories, they struggle to decide to leave him or move on.
POV: Multiple, usually first person
Length: About eight chapters including prologue and epilogue
OC's: Yes, the trainer and his team of six
It's a unique concept in part. I have seen the odd story of say a trainer saying goodbye to Pokemon when a new file on the game is being created, but nothing along the 'trainer stops moving because the game isn't being played' style deal.
Few questions that come to mind - do the Pokemon know anyone else with the same 'ailment' as their trainer? Do other trainers notice during the three years, or indeed in the past? And does the trainer maintain the same appearance when staying on the spot like that for so long?
Could certainly make for an interesting read, and indeed a rather unique set up. Worth a shot!
