Darker than it Seems: A Brighter Future








Previously in Darker than it Seems:

"The most infamous incident that occurred in Kanto; was the Rocket Bio Crisis. Team Rocket has been researching Pokemon and child development, and has tried to implement Pokemon genes to infant humans in hopes of creating a human capable of Pokemon power. There have been many failures which lead to the death of people and Pokemon, but success was imminent. Eventually, they have succeeded in creating humans with Pokemon power in which they planned to use for world domination. Though, the success was short lived, as the people quickly broke out of the rocket hideout at young ages. Several of these people have scattered through the Kanto region, and that, has caught the media's attention. Soon, Public information of these modified humans has been displayed throughout Kanto, and given the name: Hybrids
Years have passed since the incident and though the existence of the Hybrids have been revealed, most of the world has alienated them due to their unique capabilities, and will do whatever it takes, to exterminate them."
Quote from Gray-_-Hatred, the original gm of Darker than it Seems

During this time, a group of Hybrids had escaped from the clutches of Team Rocket, or as they called them "Team Wet Paper-bag." The group of friends, although facing many obstacles along the way, came to do great things. They had defeated Team Rocket many times, eventually taking them down completely. A decade has passed since the destruction of Team Rocket, and although Hybrids were assimilated into society, mostly for fear that they would revolt against the populace if segregated, they are still not treated as equals. Hybrids' powers are unstable and feared by many.

Because of this, scientists had begun researching the fundamentals of pokemon and human genetics. They had begun to create a serum that would stabilize the powers of hybrids, but were stopped when they accidentally discovered that humans and pokemon both contained a single chromosome with the exact same dna sequence. This sequence was unexpressed in humans, but in pokemon it granted them their amazing abilities. The government shut them down immediately, altering the genetic makeup of a human could potentially give them stable pokemon powers, controllable powers that would no doubt be even more powerful than a hybrids when they reach their full potential.






Currently:

This roleplay will focus on the start of a pokemon journey of a group of friends, but this group is no ordinary group of kids. These kids have unknowingly been the victims of Team Shadow's experiments. A group of evildoers bent on the destruction of mortals and conquering the world. You will play one of these friends, on a journey through Kalos. Unfortunately, their journey will have many challenges. And what they set out to do in the first place may not be their goal in the end. You, as a roleplayer, will greatly shape the story by creating it yourselves, as long as you check in whenever doing something major and follow the rules.









Character levels:

At the start of the roleplay your character's powers will be minimal, however as time goes on and your character develops their powers will also grow stronger. I will decide when your character has progressed enough to level up, and at that time you may submit your extended list of stats and use your new abilities IC.

1] Undeveloped
  • 1 Type
  • 1 passive pokemon ability
2] Unskilled
  • 1 Type
  • 1 passive pokemon ability
  • 2 moves

  • 1 passive pokemon ability
  • 3 moves
4] Competent

8] Master
  • 3 Types
  • 2 passive pokemon abilities

This rp will start in Vaniville town in Kalos. Your characters will be able to travel anywhere in the region, however flying and other forms of quick travel are not available due to plot shenanigans.

8: If a player tells you to kill them, you don't have to, but if you do, the Roleplayer killed CAN be brought back to life, but one of their types changes to ghost, affecting their current character's abilities. This is the ONLY way to become a ghost type, however, the downfall of this, is that I will decide your moves AND ability after you become a ghost type. I will, however, discuss your preferences before deciding.
9: You can have Pokemon in the PC, However, You start off with none. Just remember to keep track of all your PC Pokemon. No more than 10 in the PC at one time.

Brian was sitting at his desk, scribbling away at a letter he would send to the promising new students. He knew they'd have a wonderful time on their journey. Although he was fearful of allowing them to leave his protection, he knew they could take care of themselves once they discovered their talents. He knew his boss was already getting angry about him going rouge. He could tell by the way the attacks were getting more frequent. If he could get the letter out today, he could send them on their journey right before the next attack. He finished copying the last letter, reading over his work one last time before sending it.

Dear Student,

We have received a large number of requests to leave town, and although we were hesitant at first, we have decided that it's in our best interests to allow a small number of you to start your journey. We have gone through a rigorous exam process and selected a small few, the best of the best, to invite to our lab in Aquacorde town. You are one of those few handpicked students. Please start on your way to the lab as soon as possible, and make sure you're ready to immediately start your journey. I'm overjoyed that I get to issue you your first pokemon companion, and even more excited that I'll be monitoring you along your journey. Don't be late!

Sincerely,
Professor Brian Sage
~please replace the word Student with your character's name if they read the letter in your post~

    Dear Emery,

    We have received a large number of requests to leave town, and although we were hesitant at first, we have decided that it's in our best interests to allow a small number of you to start your journey.

    We have gone through a rigorous exam process and selected a small few, the best of the best, to invite to our lab in Aquacorde town. You are one of those few handpicked students.

    Emery holds the letter with her thumb and forefinger. She never had been a fan of the dust that coated paper. The words held little interest to her too until 'pokemon companion' caught her eye.

    A small grin spreads and anticipation renders her almost breathless as she throws the letter aside and scoops up her ready-to-go backpack from the coffee table of her small home, suited only for one but somehow housed two.

    "Uncle?" She calls out, slipping her arms through the sleeves of her jacket.

    Her Uncle Devlin stumbles out of his room. His appearance matched his personality - a mess. "You know the rule - no bothering me on a Monday." He reaches past her for his mug that had something other than coffee prepared.

    "Don't you worry," she nods to the discarded letter on the ground. "I won't be bothering you ever again."

    Devlin retrieves the letter, grunting as he bends forward. He rubs the jet black stubble on his jaw thoughtfully as he reads, waking up with each word. After what seems like an eternity later, he looks up with a frown.

    "Who will rub my feet on the weekends?"

    One of the many reasons Emery will not miss living with her drunken Uncle. There were of course plenty more, most stemming because of his worthless behavior and inability to take care of simple tasks - but their home was too contained. She needed to get out, see the world for what it was and have fun.

    "You, old man," She pats his shoulder, a little too harshly. "I've got an adventure to get to."

    He starts to stammer out excuses, endless reasons for her to stay and she slams the front door in his face. Her head tips back, soaking in the warmth of the morning sun greedily.

    Vaniville is as quiet as ever, with only the occasional person stepping out from their home to bask in the breeze of late Spring. Emery dresses in jeans during Winter and Fall, only swapping to shorts for Winter and Spring; her attire was strictly darker tones, definitely not fitting for this colorful town.

    Emery strolls down the pathway heading North where Aquacorde Town awaits. An hour later and she will be living it up with her new partner in crime.

      Name: Alex Hunt
      Age: 20




      Alex watched the sun as it rises over the trees. He had been stuck in Vaniville Town for his whole life. He wanted to get out and adventure. He had read many books on pokemon and the history of Kalos and some of the regions. He used is computer to type things down and plan out everything he would do if he ever had the chance, but all of that had been deleted the night before by a mistake on his computer and now he had to start it all over again. He would run around town and play Chimchar in the Middle with some of the kids in town. He knew a few, but not he didn't really know their names.

      As had his fingers over the keyboard, but he couldn't think of what to type. He put his hands behind his head and leaned by in his chair, looking outside. He finally got an idea on what to type, but then a knock came to his door.

      "Son, you up?" His father's voice came to the door.

      "Yes sir." Alex said with a silent sigh, and walked to the door and opened it. His father's name was Cole and he stood there with a letter.

      "This is for you. Once you get ready, come down stairs." He father said with a smile.

      Alex looked almost exactly like his dad, but he got his mothers eyes.

      "Sure." Alex said, taking the letter. Once his Dad turned away, he closed the door and opened the letter. He started to read it to himself.

      Dear Alex,

      We have received a large number of requests to leave town, and although we were hesitant at first, we have decided that it's in our best interests to allow a small number of you to start your journey.

      We have gone through a rigorous exam process and selected a small few, the best of the best, to invite to our lab in Aquacorde town. You are one of those few handpicked students. Please start on your way to the lab as soon as possible, and make sure you're ready to immediately start your journey.

      Sincerely,
      Professor Brian Sage


      With excitement and joy. He folded down the letter and quickly changed into his normal clothing. He wore a white shirt and a black, short sleeve jacket. He threw on some relaxed blue jeans and quickly tied his hiking boots. He attached the wheels to his boots to make them into roller skates when he wanted to use them. He grabbed a black hat and put it on his bushy hair and grabbed a pair of sunglasses and put them on top of his hat. After thinking he was good, he shoved the letter in his jean pockets and ran down stairs. His mom, Jenna, smiled.

      "Morning son."

      "Morning! I should probably go."

      "No! You eat first and then you can go!" His mother yelled, glaring at him. And as quickly as it came, she was smiling again.

      Alex listened to his mother and started to eat. After that, his father came in with a black messenger bag that had some blue on the flap to match his pants.

      "This is yours. It should have everything you need." His father said, handing it to him.

      Alex smiled and gladly took it. After a few more minutes, Alex kissed his mom on the cheek and gave both of them hugs, running out the door. He ran through the small town and out of the north gate.

      "This is awesome! I guess my dream of a journey is coming true! No wonder my role play journey was destroyed on my computer. It is real now! Once I get to a town with a boutique, I need to by some lighter clothing." He said, running down Route 1.

        ♡Myra Rose♡

        Dear Myra,

        We have received a large number of requests to leave town, and although we were hesitant at first, we have decided that it's in our best interests to allow a small number of you to start your journey. We have gone through a rigorous exam process and selected a small few, the best of the best, to invite to our lab in Aquacorde town. You are one of those few handpicked students.

        Myra frowned at the letter she was holding. She tossed her golden blonde hair and placed the letter on her bed, sitting down. She didn't have to think too hard about what she was going to do. She was going to go.

        Myra stood back up and went to her closet, taking out a small pink backpack and started to shove things that she thought she would need inside of it. She packed pokeballs, extra clothes, some snacks, some jewelry, some make up, and some other stuff. She took a piece of hair in her finger and started to twirl it. She really was excited to go but, walking was not her favorite thing to do... However she would have to get used to it if she wanted to go on this adventure.

        Myra slipped the straps over her shoulders and looked at herself in the mirror. She looked so cute. She had on this baby pink sweater, a pleated white mini skirt, baby pink flats, and white knee highs. She looked good, so she went downstairs and out the door. She didn't need to say anything to her parents. They probably wouldn't even notice she was gone.

        She walked on the dirt road out of town and started walking down the road. It was a nice day, the sun felt so nice on her skin. Myra hummed a little song as she walked, trying to make it as enjoyable as she could. She was curious who else was going to be in this program or why she was selected but maybe it would make her famous so she didn't really care. She kept walking until she saw some boy run past her.

        "What the..."

          --Tyre's Data--
          Spoiler:

          Name - Tyre
          Age - 22
          Type - Steel
          Ability - Anticipation
          Moves - None

          Tyre




          Tyre slouches on his couch in the living room awaiting impatiently for his grandmother to wake up. See, Tyre usually slept in the day and stayed up all night, mostly due to him guarding the house when his grandmother and younger brother where asleep.

          Tyre was paranoid that someone could break in the house while they sleep and rob the house. after all, his grandmother was a collector of rare items back in her day, so the thought of someone breaking into the house at night to steal a thing or two was always a possibility he considered. Though the odds of that happening in Vaniville were close to none, Tyre made sure he wouldn't sleep at night.

          After he heard the door to his grandmothers room open, he got up off the couch to greet her. Tyre's little brother, darted from his grandmothers room outside leaving the door wide open. Before Tyre could say anything, he was spoken to by his grandmother.

          "... Up all night again?" She asked, with a saddened facial expression. "Didn't I tell you to get some sleep for once?"
          "I do... Just not a night." Tyre said as he prepared himself to go to sleep on the couch.
          "I swear, one of these days, you'll regret not sleeping when I tell you to." She told as she made her way to the kitchen. Soon after, Tyre's little brother ran back into the house with a few envelopes in his hand and gave them to his Grandmother.

          She glanced at each one positive that all were just advertisements until she saw a peculiar looking letter that caught her eye. It had Tyre's name on it, so she opened it up and read it out loud.

          "Dear Tyre,

          We have received a large number of requests to leave town, and although we were hesitant at first, we have decided that it's in our best interests to allow a small number of you to start your journey.

          We have gone through a rigorous exam process and selected a small few, the best of the best, to invite to our lab in Aquacorde town. You are one of those few handpicked students. Please start on your way to the lab as soon as possible, and make sure you're ready to immediately start your journey.

          I'm overjoyed that I get to issue you your first pokemon companion, and even more excited that I'll be monitoring you along your journey. Don't be late!

          Sincerely,
          Professor Brian Sage"


          Tyre perked up shortly after laying down and gave his Grandmother a look of shock. She gave a mischievous smile towards Tyre.

          "Looks like your finally getting out the house!" She said, excited for Tyre.
          Tyre thought for a little bit and laid back down. "I'd rather stay here and sleep."

          "Nonsense! I've been meaning to punish you anyway. So your punishment is to go on a journey!" She cackled, starting to walk towards him with a wooden spoon.

          "That's a pretty dumb punishment." He told her, facing away from her.

          His grandmother was now standing over him and attempt to hit him with a swing capable of smashing rocks. Before impact, Tyre felt a shiver go down his spine for a bit and reflexively shielded himself from the blow without knowing it was coming.

          His grandmother looked at him in shock, not expecting him to block the hit. Tyre seemed pretty calm about it since This hasn't happened the first time. He got up from the couch and followed it with a defeated sigh.
          "Fine, I'll go." Tyre said, taking the letter from his grandmothers hand.

          "That's more like it! Besides, I'm old enough to take care of myself!" She said with a confident look. "Don't worry about a thing."

          Tyre approached the door and opened it before looking back at his Grandmother and waving brother one last time.
          "Heh... See ya later, Ya old bag of bones." He said with a relieved smile just before closing the door, making his way to Aquacorde.

            Garett Temero

            _______________________________________________________


            Garett opened his eyes and looked up at the day sky, stretching his arms and yawning. "What time is it?" Garett rubbed his eyes as he lifted his head and looked around his backyard. Garett reached for his watch but the hammock he was sleeping on moved and he fell to the ground. Damn it. Garett thought as he pushed himself up off the ground and picked up the watch to look at it. Garett slipped his black combat boots on and glanced to his front yard as a man placed envelopes into rust covered mailbox leaning next to a broken down wood fence. Garett finished tying the laces of his boots, wiped dust of his t-shirt and black camo pants, then made his way to the mailbox.

            "Carol! Mail!" Garett yelled to his aunt as he walked into his house and tossed the envelopes onto a table next to a sleeping Purrloin, waking it up. The feline pokémon hissed at Garett and jumped off thetable. "Any letters from your uncle?" Garett sat in a chair and looked up as he heard someone talking. The voice came from a short brunette woman who walked into the room. Garett shrugged as he swatted Purrloin away as it jumped back onto the table and scratched at the Seviper tattoo on Garett’s right forearm. "Still nothing from him. I know it's only been a week since he went to Dendemille but you'd think we would have heard from him by now." Carol said as she went through the mail. "Oh? There's something for you. From a Brian Sage. Sound familiar?" Garett shook his head as he took the letter from his aunt and opened it.

            "Dear Garett,

            We have received a large number of requests to leave town, and although we were hesitant at first,we have decided that it's in our best interests to allow a small number of you to start your journey. We have gone through a rigorous exam process and selected a small few, the best of the best, to invite to our lab in Aquacorde town. You are one of those few hand picked students. Please start on your way to the lab as soon as possible, and make sure you're ready to immediately start your journey. I'm overjoyed that I get to issue you your first pokemon companion, and even more excited that I'll be monitoring you along your journey. Don't be late!

            Sincerely,

            Professor Brian Sage."

            Garett looked at the letter for about a minute before speaking. "I can finally take on the Pokémon League." Carol gave Garett a quizzical look then took the letter from him. Carol read the letter and looked at Garett. "You should go. This is what you’ve been wanting for years."

            Garett set his watch on the table. "You sure? Are you going to be able to take care of the place while-" Carol raised her hand and cut him off. "Go. You've been wanting to get out and go on a journey since you were a kid. I'll be fine, trust me." Carol stood with her hands on her hips and stared at her nephew. With violet eyes and black spiked hair that had purple tips, the boy could have easily been mistaken for his own father.

            Garett stood at the door and looked back to Carol. “Are you sure you’ll be ok on your own here? I’m sure this Brian guy would understand if I waited until Glenn got back before I began my journey.” Garett said with a concerned look on his face. “I’ll be fine. I’ve got Purrloin to keep me company. Besides, even if you wait for your uncle to return, sooner or later he’ll leave again and I’ll be alone anyway. Now go.” Garett gave a nod and walked out the door to the street. He stopped at the fence and turned back to his house. Next time I stand here I’ll be the league champion and you guys can finally live a better life.

            Garett turned and began walking down the road that lead out of town, only stopping once more at the gate. Garett looked at the small town that had been his home for the past fourteen years and let out a deep breathe. After all these years I finally get to challenge
            the league. And maybe I can finally get some answers.

            Versai PenumbraIt Begins



            Versai sits quietly in her small living room, seemingly trying to read, though her eyes remain closed far more than they are open. Whoever decided that human beings should begin being productive in the morning should have been locked away and punished for his crimes against humanity.

            Mail call. Came the voice of Versai's brother, who was now looming over her with an envelope.

            "But...I never get mail." She blinks as she reaches for the envelope. She runs her fingernail over the top fold and carefully removes the letter inside. It looks...fancy, to say the least.

            Dear Versai,

            We have received a large number of requests to leave town, and although we were hesitant at first, we have decided that it's in our best interests to allow a small number of you to start your journey. We have gone through a rigorous exam process and selected a small few, the best of the best, to invite to our lab in Aquacorde town. You are one of those few handpicked students. Please start on your way to the lab as soon as possible, and make sure you're ready to immediately start your journey. I'm overjoyed that I get to issue you your first pokemon companion, and even more excited that I'll be monitoring you along your journey. Don't be late!

            Sincerely,
            Professor Brian Sage


            Suddenly she is very much awake, as well as speechless. She reads the letter over in silence several more times until she's distracted by a case being placed in her lap.

            Don't look so surprised. If you didn't think this might happen you wouldn't have put this by the door.

            "That was more wishful thinking than actual expectation." She explains as she rises from her chair and adjusts the bag over her shoulder. The letter stressed several times, in several different ways, that she needed to leave upon receiving the letter. Are they on a time limit? Are the Pokemon first come, first serve, or is this professor just excitable? Either way, with everything packed, she has no reason not to leave immediately. That's good, long goodbyes making leaving so much harder. She hugs her brother quickly.

            "I'll call you when I get there." She vows, breaking the hug and heading for the door. It's onward to route one, and straight for Aquacorde town.

            Andrew had been gone for a few hours, nobody suspected a thing. Matt moved quickly, fixing the house to look exactly as he found it. His levitate ability helped keep him from stepping on the broken pieces of a vase. He carefully cleaned it up, dumping everything into a pile and quickly shooting a shadow ball into the center. The pieces were gone in a matter of seconds. All that was left was to leave a note explaining why "Andrew" was leaving and his mission would be complete.

            Well, the first part. He knew the second part would take time. Unless of course Flora succeeded with Plan A. Which was impossible, seeing as Plan A was designed to fail. But of course Beacon wouldn't tell her that. It had to look real.

            After the letter was complete, and the mess cleaned up, he headed out on his way, eager to deceive every one of them. He needed to make sure that nobody suspected him though, which meant walking. On his feet! How crude. But it had to be done. He smirked, walking quickly towards Aquacorde town. Nobody would know, and he took pride in that.

              Name: Alex Hunt
              Age: 20




              Alex slowed to a walk after about half way down Route 1. He had nearly ran into someone, but he wasn't sure who it was. Although she looked a little familiar. He looked at the flowers and trees, taking everything in. He took in a large amount of fresh air. Not to mention he could actually look at what his parents had given him for the journey.

              He flipped open the flap of his bag and placed a hand inside, while going down the road. He pulled out a medium sized case, a little bigger than the size of a DSi XL. It was a grayish color with a touch of blue and it weighed almost nothing. He found that it opened side to side and as he opened it, an arrow appeared on the map that was on the right side of the gadget. For a moment, he tried to figure out what it was, but he realized it was like a map of the Kalos Region and used GPS to locate him. After a moment, he figured out it was a touch screen, after looking for buttons. He clicked on Aquacorde Town and an arial picture of the town and a large amount of info, came up on the left side. He scrolled around on the map, trying to get a feel for it and eventually felt good about using it.

              "Sweet. This will come in handy." Alex said, closing the map and placing it back in the bag, slipping it into the slot it came from.

              Before pulling out, he grabbed something else that was in a different slot. It was a bit smaller than the town map, and somewhat thin. It is literally weighed nothing. It had an electronic eye like thing at the top and a screen that had a flashing message on it. He clicked the message and suddenly a holo gram that looked like his father formed where he pointed the thing.

              "Son. If you are listening to this, then you are probably going through the bag. This is a Holocaster. You can use it to communicate with people like a phone, however, it used holograms. This will also give you important announcements and what not. This is a prerecorded message, so don't try to talk back. People would think you were mad. Hahaha. You also have a Town Map that is basically an electronic traveler's guide. It uses GPS, so you can know where you are at without getting lost. Though I am sure there will be dead zones. There is also a badge case in the bag. It is shaped like an iceberg. We figured we would give you one. It also holds other forms of rewards such as ribbons and what not. We didn't know what you wanted to do, so we got something with choices! That is all for now son. Me and your mom love you. Have a great journey." The hologram cut off.

              Alex smiled as he place the strap connected to the hologram, around his neck. He looked at the case, but decided to wait to look at it. It was then that it hit him.... He didn't know what he wanted to do. He came to an abrupt stop.

              "Well damn. I don't even know what I want to do." Alex muttered to himself.

                Ryan Anders



                In the town of Vaniville, there was a quiet street. On this street was a simple house, with a dark staircase leading to a dark cellar. Ryan woke up in this cellar, the springs of his cot creaking as he sat up. He didn't have a mirror, so he just ran his fingers through his hair to remove any tangles and assumed it was fine. He'd slept in his clothes, so he went upstairs to get some food.

                His adoptive father had apparently already woken up and made himself breakfast, and the whole kitchen smelled of egg and brown meat. He went to the fridge to make himself a sandwich, when he noticed an envelope on the table with his name on it. Taking his sandwich and the letter, he returned to his cellar to eat and read.

                Dear Ryan,

                We have received a large number of requests to leave town, and although we were hesitant at first, we have decided that it's in our best interests to allow a small number of you to start your journey. We have gone through a rigorous exam process and selected a small few, the best of the best, to invite to our lab in Aquacorde town. You are one of those few handpicked students.

                Sincerely,
                Professor Brian Sage


                "The best of the best? And they chose me? There must be some mistake..." Ryan was startled when a black backpack hit the floor at the bottom of the stairs. He went to it, seeing his father at the top of the stairs. "No mistake, kid. You're smart, you're tough, and you've got heart. I think it's time you got out there and did something meaningful. Instead of just staying here, taking care of me."

                Ryan looked at the letter again, weighing his options. He went back and changed into his least ragged clothes, putting on his favorite jacket and the backpack. "If it is a mistake, I should go tell them about it. If it isn't..."

                "Then you'd better not keep them waiting!" Ryan grinned, heading upstairs. When he got to the top, his father picked him up in a hug. "You're gonna have fun, and make new friends, and get in a lot of fights!" Ryan found it hard to breathe, but returned the hug as best he could. "I'm sure I will. I'll keep in touch. ...can you let me go, please?" "In a minute."




                His bag packed, Ryan set off down Route 1. It was later then he would've liked, so he took off at a quick jog to make up for lost time.

                  Alex continued to walk on Route 1, it wasn't long before he got to the arc that told him that he had made it to Aquacorde. He had not really been here that he could remember. Maybe when he was little. Most of his life, he had stayed in Vaniville Town. The town was fairly small. Off to the left and right sides, he could see a large amount of tables spread out through the upper tier of the town. He saw large buildings coming up from the ground, but none of them went higher than a second level. Lamp posts were starting to turn off after the morning had ended and other people were talking, ending and having coffee or similar drinks at the tables. Some had laptops and others just talked. He could hear a faint sound of water, which he guessed had to be the large river at the north side of town.

                  He walked through down and down the first set of steps. There was a large fountain in the center of the next layer. Small markets and buildings went up and down the square, surrounding the large fountain. Near the fountain a large sign read 'Water and civilization in harmony.' He took out his town map and opened it. He looked around town, locating where he was, and marked it.

                  "Excuse me. Can you please move out of the shot." A voice fell on death ears.

                  He continued to look around, but he couldn't find it.

                  "Please move...." The voice fell on death ears again.

                  He walked around the town the fountain and tripped over what felt like a rock. He started to fall, quickly closing his map so the screen wouldn't break.

                  'Roggen!' A pokemon cried.

                  He fell into someone and he heard a splash form the fountain. He ended up on the ground, of to the side of a girl with long brown hair. She wore blue jean short that went town to her knee caps and white shirt and a blue jean vest. She had a symbol on her shirt that was orange, and a matching hat. She was pretty short, a lot shorter than he was.

                  "No no no!" The girl yelled quickly getting to her feet and running to the fountain.

                  Alex got to his feet and looked toward the girl, "Umm.... sorry? I tripped over some rock."

                  He saw the girl shake. For a moment he thought she was crying... but he was wrong. The girl whirled around at him and glared.

                  "You tripped over MY Roggenrola and you made me drop my camera into the fountain! This was the last shot I had to take before I got a better one! Now I need a new camera! Sorry doesn't cut it."

                  Alex gulped, and backed away, trying to get away.

                  "No you don't!" The girl quickly followed and grabbed his ear and slung him in front of her. He crashed on the ground. He looked up at the girl that was his age and he backed into the fountain, her glare angrier. The Roggenrola he had tripped over was also glaring at him.

                  "I am sorry, but how 'bout I take you out for coffee or something! Will that make up for it!"

                  "Are you serious!?" She yelled, grabbing a news paper from her bag and slapping him across the face, dazing him for a second.

                  "No you are going to work for me for free!"

                  "That is slavery! I won't stand for it!" Alex yelled. He watched as her eyes exploded with fire, not literally. He gulped again.

                  "Ok. I will work for you." Alex surrendered.

                  "That is what a thought." She said, pulling a pokeball out, "Gogoat! Please join us!" She announced with grace.

                  A large Gogoat, with backpacks and stuff over his back, appeared and walked over to the girl. She touched its horns and it instantly look over and glared at Alex. The girl went to one bag and pulled out a C-Gear.

                  "A C-Gear? Man are you behind the times! We use Holocasters here! Where have you been? Under a rock?" Alex said.

                  The girl slapped the C-Gear over Alex's wrist, hard. The slap echoed through the square and Alex cringed in pain.

                  "I am from Unova mister. We prefer C-Gears. This will allow us to communicate. It it locked and only I can unlock it. Try to take it off and you get zapped. Try to run away from a job, I will track you down and have my Gogoat trample you. Understood?" The girl said in a deathly calm tone. She then had a wicked grin cross her face.

                  Alex nodded, "Can I at least get your name?"

                  "Ayla. Now I have to return to my boss and tell her what happened. We will talk again soon." Ayla said, jumping on her Gogoat and returned her Rogenrolla. They ran off across the bridge in the north side of town.

                  As she was gone, Alex attempted to take it off and a shock was sent to his body, causing his arm to move on its own for a second. The C-Gear started to ring. He sighed and answered the call.

                  "Told you." Ayla appeared on the screen and then went black again.

                  Alex smiled and looked up at the sky, "Well... what have I gotten myself into... already...."

                  He stood up and walked over to his town map and picked it up to looked for the lab again.

                    Garett Temero

                    _______________________________________________________



                    I can't believe it's already been fourteen years sinceI've moved to Vaniville. Garett thought as he walked down the road. I wonder where I should go first. Dendemille to Uncle Glenn or Laverre to visit my parents? Or I could go straight for the league and see them on my way.

                    Before he knew it Garett arrived at the gates of Aquacorde, the hour walk seeming like mere minutes. Garett looked around at the tall buildings and the bridge and river off in the distance. Aquacorde, water and civilization in harmony. This place looks a lot better than Vaniville. Garett made his way down some steps and stopped as he saw a familiar looking man. I feel like I’ve seen him before. Did he get a letter as well? The man stumbled and tripped over a Roggenrola and knocked a woman's camera into a large fountain. Garett laughed as he watched the guy stumble around, then sat down on a nearby bench as he pulled the letter out of his pocket, reading it over again.

                    I wonder what pokemon I'll get as my starter? Garett rubbed his chin with his right hand as he pondered what pokemon he might get. Hopefully something cool like a Seviper, that would be awesome. Maybe Gastly or Charmander? Whatever it is I hope it's something really cool, though Seviper would be best. Garett looked over from the letter to his left wrist.

                    Damn it. Left it at the house. Garett face-palmed himself as he realized he forgot his
                    watch. Hopefully I'm not late. Garett stood up and started walking to the lab.

                      The trip usually takes about an hour, but Emery made time to climb into a tree on her way to remove Uncle Dev from her Holocaster and watch the Route for more possible students on their way to Aquacorde.

                      Two pass underneath her - one running at full speed, then slowing when he reaches the edge of her sight. The other at a considerably less rushed pace with purple tipped hair. They don't seem like much, Emery climbs down to the lowest branch, straddling the limb before jumping down to the path, landing cat-like on all fours. But I've been wrong before... on rare occasions.

                      Emery walks the final few minutes calmly, adjusting the sleeves of her jacket as she does - it was getting warmer by the day. At the arc of Aquacorde, she bursts forward with all her speed, only stopping by the fountain at the heart of town. She leans over the side and smirks at all the coins that people throw in, making useless wishes on.

                      "What a joke," she chuckles, removing her backpack and jacket before grabbing a handful nearest to her. She drops the coins into the front pocket of her bag.

                      After cleaning her arm of any excess water, Emery makes her way to the Lab, holding her jacket in one hand and the handle of her backpack with the other. She sits on the ground, back against the wall and one knee bent. She fiddles with her Holocaster, looking over the Map for the fifth time that day.

                        Ryan Anders



                        The jog down Route 1 was fairly uneventful, even when Ryan slowed down to observe the scenery. Sure, it was nothing new, but he had a feeling like he was never going to see it again. Or at least, not for a while. "No need to be so dramatic..." he muttered, shaking himself from his thoughts. He remembered that he was supposed to hurry, and set off down the trail once more. As the archway at Aquacorde approached, Ryan slowed to a walk again.

                        Aquacorde was a much livelier place than Vaniville, even at this hour. He'd been here before, usually going to one of the specialty shops, but the change of pace often made him pause. He was vaguely familiar with where the Lab was, although he'd never had a reason to go there before. He considered heading to one of the little shops by the cafe, but again reminded himself of the urgency the letter implied. "Shopping can wait. I've gotta find that lab."

                        He headed off down a side road that he thought would lead him to the Lab. After a bit of walking, he found it, and broke into a run in his excitement. To his annoyance, he somehow arrived at the back door, and ran around the building to get to the front. He slowed to a jog for safety, and as he rounded a corner, he became glad of it. A girl was leaning against a wall, looking over her map, and Ryan skidded to a stop just before he would've run over her.

                        "Sorry! I'll pay more attention..." He started to apologize, before realizing the girl looked familiar. He had seen her around town a few times, but never spoken to her. He decided not to mention it. "I'll just... be on my way."

                          ♡Myra Rose♡


                          Myra continued walking to Aquacorde town. She felt like she had been walking for miles, but she had her trusty mirror to keep her company. She probably looked like a complete lunatic, walking down the road talking to herself in a mirror but she didn't care. She wouldn't see any of these freaks again anyways.

                          She hadn't really noticed anyone while she was walking. She was too involved with the mirror. She was sure some people must have passed her but she wasn't sure who these people were. Myra giggled as she slipped the mirror back into her backpack and skipped off of the trail. There was a little meadow her grandmother used to take her to when they would go get berries from Aquacorde. It was full of pink and white flowers, that had the most heavenly aroma. Her favorite thing was to go there during the full moon. The flowers sparkled and she felt so safe and beautiful there. It was her favorite.

                          Myra bent over and picked up some flowers and weaved them into a flower crown that she plopped upon her head. She was happy she made the detour but risked being late. Although it would be fashionably late, so it would be okay. Unless... Unless they were giving the pokemon to the first people who got there. Myra wanted the cutest pokemon they had and if she got there late, she probably wouldn't get it. However, there was no way that Myra was running so she just walked a little faster then she was going before.

                          Before she knew it she saw the beautiful sign that welcomed her to Aquacorde. She smiled strutting into the town and taking a little spin.

                          "I have arrived Aquacorde. Now watch me sparkle!" she said loudly for everyone to hear. She walked through the town and smiled at some people. Myra saw some other kids that might have looked familiar but she wasn't sure. Myra never really played with any of the other kids in town. She never wanted too, they were always rolling around in mud and they probably would mean to her since she had the biggest and most beautiful house in the whole town.

                          Myra huffed, her feet tired of walking. She would have to get someone to carry her on this trip. She went to the lab and looked around. She wasn't sure if she was supposed to enter, so she just sat next to the door waiting for someone else to come. She took the mirror back out of her bag and a beautiful pearl necklace. Her mother found it in a bed of flowers in the Johto region. She never knew who it belonged to but she had the feeling it had been on lots of adventures.

                          She put on the pearl necklace admiring how it still sparkled and shined beautifully. She took a brush out of her bag and began to brush her flowing blonde locks and looked at herself in the mirror. Myra wasn't sure what this journey had in store, but she was going to be the cutest one there.

                            --Tyre's Data--
                            Spoiler:

                            Name - Tyre
                            Age - 22
                            Type - Steel
                            Ability - Anticipation
                            Moves - None

                            Tyre





                            Tyre traversed route 1 with only one thing in mind. It hadn't hit him until recently, but why exactly was he going to Aquacorde? Yeah, He knew he was going to get a Pokemon and all, but why him out of all people? The letter said him and a select few, but he didn't know why he was special. Not to mention he never really communicated with anybody outside his family, so wondering what the other people invited were like, occasionally invaded his mind.

                            Without paying any attention to the town's scenery, he wandered through the Aquacorde town entrance and hadn't realized it until he started to notice the abundance of people around him. He looked around the town, wondering if there was anything special about it, but the only thing catching his attention was the words the people around him were saying.

                            "Yeah so, I had a Pokemon from Hoenn. I released it a few days ago on Route 2." He heard a voice next to him start off.
                            "Really? I love Hoenn Pokemon! What was it?" The guy standing next to him asked.
                            "Oh, nothing too great. Just a Poochyena. They're pretty common around the Hoenn region. I caught one for my girlfriend while I was on vacation there but I completely forgot she doesn't like dog Pokemon! Hahaha!"
                            "Some boyfriend you are! Hahaha!"
                            The two men soon continued there conversation elsewhere. Tyre thought for a moment. "He released a common Pokemon from Hoenn in route 2?... Hmm... Poochyena was it? I've never seen or heard that Pokemon before. Maybe I can ask someone at the lab what that is."

                            After pondering for a bit, he finally headed towards the lab, ready to ask anyone a question about Poochyena.

                            Versai PenumbraIt Begins



                            While Versai usually takes her time walking this route, keeping an eye out for items dropped by others on their way between the two cities, this time was different. She continued to think about the letter, the urgency it displayed with its pleading for these hand-picked people to make their way to this professor the moment they could, and those final words: don’t be late. How can they be late to an event that has no set time? There was no deadline on the letter, and it’s hardly likely that every person that received these letters checked their mail at the same time. Perhaps there was supposed to be a given time, and the professor forgot to write it into the letters due to his own haste to get them out.
                            Something about this all seems…unnecessarily rushed. Even if the professor only put those hurry-implying words into his letter because of his own excitement, one would think such an astute professor would take the time to proofread his own letter before shipping it out to a handful of different people. Versai draws in a deep breath, then slowly exhales, her shoulders folding inward as she does so. This is hardly the first time she’s overthought a situation that likely has a very simple answer, and one that will be explained to her within the hour, at that.
                            On the bright side, all that deep thinking made the hurried walk through the route go incredibly quickly; she can see the city from here! Excitement far surpasses her previous confusion, and she breaks into a light jog into the city. “Excuse me—pardon me—Oh, I am so sorry—excuse me.” She mutters as she bobs and weaves around the city’s people (who were moving far too slow for her taste). Navigating around them in a hurried manner made getting to the lab seem more like an obstacle course than a simple walk, but she made it! This is the lab. She draws in one last breath, taking a moment to collect herself before calmly walking to the door. In front of said door sits a girl with golden hair. She seems rather relaxed, as if she’s been here awhile. Are they not opening the doors yet? “Are…we early?”

                              Name: Alex Hunt
                              Age: 20




                              Alex made a lap around the square looking for the lab, but he didn't find anything that looked like a pokemon lab. He went back to the fountain, as he looked toward the waterfall, he saw a red headed girl putting her arm into the fountain and taking coins. He shrugged at what he saw, not really caring one way or another, even though she was like eating the dreams of those people who had thrown the money in the fountain.

                              Hmm. I wonder if I could get on her good side? Use her to get this damned C-Gear off and then put the watch on her. She seems like one who would be able to deactivate the watch. I wouldn't be surprised if she has been in jail a few times after seeing her take those coins from the fountain. Not to mention she is one hot mama. That red hair is amazing. If she were pokemon, she'd definitely be a fire type. He thought.

                              He loved red hair. He had a 'poster' of Skyla, the gym leader from Unova. She was hot as Pyroar's flame. He started to wonder if this red head might be one of the new trainers. Maybe she could lead him to the lab. As he walked after her, a weary feeling came over him. He stopped in his tracks, unsure why he felt like that.

                              That's odd. I don't usually get that type of feeling from a girl. I will just follow from afar for now. It may not be the best idea to trick her. She might be more violent than that Ayla girl. I would rather not die. He brain stormed the feeling he got from her. He wanted to stay away from her, but there was no avoiding getting near her if she was a new trainer. He would no doubt have to figure out why he was weary of her, if he could, maybe he could overcome it.

                              He waited for a few minutes before approaching the girl after she had leaned up against a wall. More people had started to gather around the same building. This had to be a lab.

                              "Well ain't this some crap. He tells us not to be late, and he is the one late." He said, rolling his eyes.

                              All of these people looked a little familiar to him, but he didn't know any of them by heart. He had to be smart. They were his rivals. He doubted they were as smart as he was when it came to pokemon knowledge. However, he didn't really like to reveal that side of him. He loved making friends, but he couldn't help being such a normal guy. He had been in that town all of his life. He wanted to have a little fun. He promised himself that in time, he would try to be friends with all of them, but that day was not this day. He probably could handle one or two today though. Maybe.

                              The Lab, Part 1



                              Brian twirled a pencil around his fingers, unsure what he was going to do. He knew not everyone was here yet, and he kept wondering what he was going to do if they didn't show up in time. Would he send the others off without them? Could he do that knowing that he'd be leaving someone behind? Or should he search for them?

                              In all his excitement he failed to notice that one of the lights had begun to flicker, but not from a lack of power, but because a pokemon was hiding inside it. The rotom sparked, happily sapping the energy from the room. It wouldn't be long before the power would go out, and that was just the distraction Flora needed to complete part one of their plan.

                              Brian checked his cameras again, this time noticing the last person just arriving at the town. He jumped up joyously and ran for the door.

                              "There's no time to waste!" he yelled, while simultaneously throwing open the front doors.

                              "Welcome all!" he practically screamed.

                              "Come on in and get settled, or don't, we're a bit short on time. I think we have about an hour or two but I could be wrong. I'm usually off by a few minutes most of the time. So," he continued "Any questions so far?" he asked.

                              He turned around as he asked the question, noticing the confused and rather startled faces staring back at him. Maybe he should slow it down a bit. He laughed, probably looking like a lunatic, but he didn't care.


                              Myra sat in front of the door to the lab as people started to come around her. She was sure some of them were talking to her but she was too busy looking at herself in the mirror. Once she finally looked perfect enough she slipped her mirror back into her backpack and looked up at the people.

                              There was a girl in front of her, she was tall and was kind of pretty. She had black hair and blue eyes. She looked kind of sad but Myra wasn't going to ask her what was wrong.

                              There was also a boy with blonde hair, green eyes... He was attractive, she guessed. He was also tall and he looked a little older than she was. She got this weird feeling from him however.

                              Before Myra could judge anymore people, the doors to the lab swung open and hit Myra sending her to face plant in the dirt. She slowly got up and wiped her face, making sure she still looked beautiful,thankfully no dirt got on her face. Then she slowly got up and looked at the man who had opened the door.

                              "Yeah I have a question... ARE YOU AN IDIOT?! I WAS SITTING THERE!" she screamed, her face getting a little red. She crossed her arms and pushed her way past him to enter the lab.

                              "Where's my pokemon freak?"


                              Garett finally made his way to the lab, stopping when he noticed a group of people he recognized. More people from Vaniville? Funny enough I still don‘t know them either. He thought as he stood awkwardly and looked around. Garett stared at the red head‘s Holocaster then glanced at the blonde with her mirror. One of these days I‘ll have enough money to get holocasters for myself, Carol, and Glenn. And who the heck brings a mirror on a journey? Rich people... Garett closed his eyes and shook his head as he thought.

                              Suddenly the lab door opened, knocking over the blonde girl, and a man walked out. Garett chuckled as the girl fell over then focused his attention on the man. Garett quietly followed the other future trainers into the building and leaned back against a wall.


                              Emery's moment of peace ended once more to-be-trainers showed up, with less than graceful entries. One almost tripped over her - she moved her legs out of the way just in time - which led to an awkward apology. She had to roll her eyes at Princess Myra's head turning entrance into the town. Most of the kids gathered were ones she doesn't remember ever seeing before - maybe she did, but didn't take much notice - but Myra, it was hard to ignore the richest rattata at the Academy.

                              When a blonde-haired kid that looked like he should still be in school muttered, 'Well ain't this some crap. He tells us not to be late, and he is the one late.' She chucked to herself. Hard to be late with no set time, but this was a waste of hers.

                              The Professor now stands to the side, allowing the trainers to enter the Lab. Emery gathers her stuff and skips up the steps, into the building and propping herself up on the counter. Myra screeches about wanting her Pokemon, blah blah blah, and Emery swings her legs, a few feet off the ground.


                              Ryan stepped back as more and more people showed up, all of whom seemed vaguely familiar. He'd seen them all around town, but again, never actually met them. Wanting to avoid more awkward starts, he just stayed still and quiet. When the Professor appeared and knocked over that poor girl, Ryan offered her a hand up, but she leapt up on her own and stormed inside. The others followed suit, with Ryan bringing up the rear.

                              After letting everyone settle down, or rile up in Myra's case, Brian continued. He completely ignored everyone, it''s not like he planned on answering their questions anyway, and started speaking again.

                              "It's important that you treat pokemon with respect at all times. They are our equals, in every way. We must learn to live in harmony with them and take care of them like family." he began to rant, droning on about safety, friendship, and a bunch more until he realized he was short for time.

                              "Oh! Umm, here." he said, thrusting forward a box of sleek, silver pokeballs. Take one, and you can choose your starter in the observatory. It's just up the stairs. He waited, hoping that everyone would take one without complaining.

                              Oh, dear, poor girl. At least she wasn’t hit too hard…she seemed more annoyed by the intrusion than she was wounded by the abrupt door to the face. It’s probably best not to draw any more attention to that plunder, lest they embarrass the blonde girl even more. Glancing about her surroundings, she sees several more people have joined them. It seems, ironically enough, that even with the lack of a time to meet, they all had actually managed to arrive around the same time. Interesting… she would ask if the letters were hand delivered (her brother didn’t say anything about a personal delivery, but there could have been one), if they were not already pressed for time-- So pressed that she’s not even through the door before he’s started giving his speech on Pokémon. Well, that’s fine. She’d rather meet her new Pokémon now rather than later.

                              She hurriedly makes her way through the door and approaches the professor, gently reaching out to take one of the silver Pokeballs he offered. “Thank you, Professor. May we go see them now?”


                              Alex chuckled a little as the blonde was hit by the door and face planted into the ground. He smiled as she started yelling at the, one he assumed was the professor. He caught the others having a chuckle as well, whether it be from the blonde or something else. He listed to the Professor. The man walked into the door asking for questions, but the quickly continued as if had no intention on answering anyone in the first place.

                              Alex entered and took the silver ball that the professor had offered. For one reason or another, he got the feeling that this professor was in somewhat of a hurry. Alex straighted up into a more respectful manner.

                              "Thank you sir. My name is Alex Hunt. I would like to thank you for this chance to leave." Alex announced.

                              He couldn't help, but look around. He noticed he had been close to the red head from earlier and he slowly stepped away from her. Still unsure why he was weary of her. He had always been able to easily make moves on hot girls when he wanted, but this girl. This red headed girl, worried the crap out of him.

                              As Brian continued, he nodded. He looked at the silver ball. Wasn't a poke ball normally red and white, with a black band? Why was this one silver? He had studied the different types of poke balls, but he didn't recognize this type of ball.

                                Name: The Lab, Part 2



                                Note: Due to a little confusion on my part, I had to quickly change things and didn't put it in colors. Sorry about that.

                                Myra tried to ignore the giggles she was getting from the other kids, and she did an okay job. She knew if she was mean to everyone that no one would carry her. She was appauled that the Professor didnt apologize or anything! But he was giving her a pokeball so she didnt care.

                                Myra looked out at the full group of kids. No one looked too famillar. She thought she recognized the red head but she didnt really care who she was at this point.

                                Myra reached infront of Brian and grabbed a silver pokeball and looked at her reflection.

                                "These pokeballs are so fetch! I love them!" She said holding it close to her heart and starting up the stairs. She looked around the room and her eyes opened. "Oh. My. God." she said amazed by the scene.

                                There were pokemon everywhere. They were playing and napping and eating. It was so beautiful. She walked further into the play room and sat down on the floor. She wanted to see which pokemon came to her. There was an adorable eevee, she thought it was so cute. She picked up the eevee and snuggled it before it jumped away from her.

                                Myra frowned and huffed a little before seeing the cutest little Togepi who was looking down at itself in the water. Once Myra saw the togepi she knew it was perfect for her. So she walked towards Togepi and took out her diamond crusted mirror for the togepi to look in.

                                The Togepi looked up at Myra and then into the mirror and made a little sound seeing itself. Myra slid the mirror away and smiled at Togepi.

                                "Hey there sweetie! My name is Myra!" she said as she pet the little pokemon. The silver pokeball was sitting next to Myra. Togepi went over to the pokeball, happy to see itself. It tapped the pokeball and it opened up, and Togepi sparkled getting into the pokeball.

                                Myra smiled and picked up the silver pokeball. She took off her backpack and fiddled with it, taking out a little choker she had with a bell on the end of it. Myra pushed the middle of the pokeball and watched Togepi come out.

                                "Togepi. I have this for you." she said putting the choker around her. Togepi cooed and jingled the bell.

                                "You like that? You know... I think I'll name you Tink.. How do you like that!" Togepi cooed and jumped into Myra's arms. It was a match made in heaven~

                                Garett stood back and listened as Brian talked about the bonds between pokemon and trainer. Once Brian wrapped up his speech Garett walked over and grabbed one of the silver pokeballs and examined it. Hmm, didn‘t know they made pokeballs like this. Garett moved away from the box of pokeballs and followed Myra up the steps to the observatory.

                                Once he got to the top of the stairs Garett stared in awe at all the pokemon filling the room. He watched as Myra sat on the ground and played with an eevee then made his way to the opposite end of the room to look for other pokemon. Garett stopped when he saw a Gastly floating in the air. Sweet! I can have a Gastly for my starter! Garett pressed the button on the silver pokeball,causing the sphere to enlarge, then raised his arm to throw it.

                                Just as he was about to release the ball a Rufflet walked up and pecked Garett‘s shin, causing him to drop the pokeball. "Ow, what the hell?!" Garett instinctively kicked the eagle pokemon away and knelt down to pick up the pokeball. Rufflet ran up and pecked Garett‘s hand, preventing him from grabbing the ball, then pecked his face. "You little fu-" Garett stopped and sighed as he looked at Rufflet who was staring back with it‘s head tilted to the side and eyes open wide.

                                Rufflet walked up to Garett then looked back and forth between Garett and the pokeball before finally hitting the button, sending itself into the ball. "You‘ve got to be kidding me..." Garett sat and silently stared at the pokeball sitting on the ground.

                                Ryan stepped in after everyone else, following at the back of the group. He wasn't really paying attention to the Professor, since he'd heard all of this before, and in much less boring ways. When the time came, he took a silver ball, muttering "Thank you, Professor..." as he did, and took a walk around the room.

                                Alex followed after Garett and Myra. He stopped at the entrance, observing what was going on. He wanted to study how these silver poke balls worked. He had never heard of them and it felt odd.

                                He watched Togepi and Myra get along perfectly. He then watched Garett become a little annoyed at Rufflet, but it seemed perfectly happy to go with him, even after it was kicked. He wanted a few more to get their pokemon first. He couldn't help, but study what was unknown to him, One thing he noticed was that the pokemon seemed to take interest into the trainer or something related to said trainer. No pokemon seemed to be taking interest in Alex at all. This worried him.

                                Tyre stepped in the Lab, extremely late, missing all the events that have occured within the lab. He knew he missed all the events because he could hear the voices of people upstairs. Unannounced, he walks up the stairs, not sure if he catches the attention of the others. Even if he didn't, he came for one thing and one thing only... For his Pokemon. He didn't know what he would get, but he would be fine with just about anything, but what was really on his mind was that Poochyena.

                                He saw a group of people he had no intention of interacting with at first, but he tapped the shoulder of the nearest person to him. "You... I have a question." He said the woman closest to him.

                                Myra heard someone speak to her. She frowned and stood up, looking at Tyre. "Yes, can I help you?" She said responding to him saying he had a question.

                                "What is a Poochyena?" He asked, get straight to the point. He didn't like how her vibe radiated a sense of superiority. It made him want to assert himself over her, but he had strong self control. "I want to know what it is because I've heard some people talking about it. So I want you to tell me what it is."

                                Myra giggled a little at his question. "A Poochyena is a dark type Pokemon from the Hoenn region. It evolves into Mightyena. They like to bite people and are very playful little things." She said and smiled at Tyre.

                                "Does that answer your question?" She said taking out her pink Holocaster. She typed something in and it showed him a picture of a Poochyena.

                                "You're welcome."

                                "Hmm.." He examined the Pokemon. He wanted to have the dog Pokemon shown by his side. "Show me the Mightyena." He demanded, expecting her to comply.

                                "There's a word called please. You should use it." she said a little annoyed by his rudeness. She kind of liked it but it was super rude. Maybe he was nice somewhere deep inside. She typed something and showed him the dog Pokemon.

                                "It would look very nice next to you." she said imagining the growling wolf dog next to him.

                                He smiled at the thought of a ferocious wolf by his side. He pictured walking around with the amazing beast beside him and couldn't help but let out a smirk. "Thanks." He said walking passed her. He went to go get his Pokemon but thought it would be nice to remember her name, since she was useful to him. "What's your name?" He asked before he went to get his Pokemon.

                                "Me? I'm Myra Rose. Superstar in the making. What's yours?" she asked offering the boy a sweet smile.

                                "Don't worry about it." He told her, remaining anonymous. He didn't have any intention of becoming friends with her, even if she was pretty.

                                He walked passed her, now focusing on what Pokemon he should get. He gazed at the group of people all with their Pokemon. "I guess they ran out.." He said slightly disapointed. He turned around, ready to leave the lab, but right in front of him was a rather large tounge, which soon licked the majority of his face.

                                Shivers ran through him as he was spooked by such a disturbing feeling. Usually he's able to sense when something unexpected like that was going to happen, but this Pokemon genuinely surprised him.The Pokemon that licked him soon cackled in an obnoxious laugh. It flew around Tyre, happy that is spooked him. "... You actually spooked me..." He admitted. "I'd never thought a Ghastly would be the first thing to actually scare me."

                                He looked around to see if the Ghastly was accompanied by a trainer. "Where's your trainer?" He asked, expecting the trainer to be in the group of people. Ghastly answered by becoming completely invisible. "... I guess not." Soon, a floating silver ball hovered its way towards Tyre, and once it reached him, Tyre stuck out his hand and the ball fell in the palm of it.

                                "Im guessing you want me to be your trainer. Well, If that's the case, how about I give you a name?" Ghastly showed itself before Tyre and spun around happily at the fact that it got a new a trainer.

                                "How about I name you... Spooks."

                                Versai was leaning against the door, watching the blonde haired girl pick up an Eevee. It tolerated the snuggling for a few seconds before hopping away. Next the girl walked towards a little Togepi that was staring at its reflection in the water, as Myra had been doing before with her little mirror. You could practically see the instant bond that formed between the two, and it’s…quite lovely.

                                One of the boys went through next. He walked straight towards a Gastly, and he made the motion to catch it, only for a little bird Pokémon to flock to him. She gasped quietly when he kicked the Rufflet, yet it went right back to him. There was a momentary struggle before the Rufflet claimed the boy’s silver pokeball. It seems these Pokémon have something in common with the trainers they claim. A fashionable Togepi, and a stubborn Rufflet. What a genius way for trainers to obtain their first Pokémon. This is far better than having someone pick from descriptions alone. With the others waiting, one speaking and the other a bit hesitant, she decides to step in.

                                As she walks through the gorgeous area she catches the eye of the little Eevee. The little brown fox pauses and glances at her for a second or two, then continues on its way. Hmm…nothing there. Next she walks towards the Gastly; a ghost type would suit a girl who feels such comfort in the darkness of night. She reaches her hand out towards the ghostly sphere, and it floats right through her. No? Alright then.

                                She watched Gastly float away carrying a silver Pokeball to another trainer—and that’s when she noticed the little orange fox towards the back of the room: This little one is keeping a close eye on the door, her eyes flitting from person to person as they come in and move around. Versai can’t help the smile that comes to her face as she walks over to the Fennekin.

                                “See someone you like?” She asks. Fennekin looks up to the dark haired girl, her tail gives a curious flick before she stands, her head tilted upward to look into Versai’s eyes. Versai slips down onto her knees and offers her hand out to the fire fox to sniff.
                                One tiny sniff later, the fire fox lets out a happy, albeit quiet, cry. Fennekin walks around Versai’s outstretched hand and towards the silver Pokeball that Versai rested in her lap. She taps the ball with her tiny paw, and…in she goes.

                                “Well then.” Versai’s smile brightens as she stands. She calls Fennekin back out and into her arms, where she gives the fox a delicate hug. “It’s an honor to meet you, little one.”

                                Emery waits until everyone has gone up to the observatory, resting her arm on the collection of books stacked high next to her. She looks at Professor Brian, off-put by his cheerful and crazed personality. Realizing she rather be stuck in a room with the Princess, Emery hops down from the desk - plucking a silver Pokeball from the box - and follows the dark haired girl up the stairs.

                                Mostly everyone has begun to bond with their Pokemon as only a few remain. Her eyes followed an Eevee, its ears twitching with every small noise and attempting to wrestle with a Chespin.

                                "Hey, little one," Emery calls out, moving slowly to the small fox Pokemon. "No one's entertaining you, huh?"

                                The Eevee's bright eyes seem to light up more as Emery crouches, hands outstretched and wriggling her fingers. She strikes, tickling the Eevee's sides and smiling brightly as it playfully swats at her hands. They continue like this until the Eevee starts to paw at the Pokeball. Emery juggles it thoughtfully - It's small, almost fragile - but it's fun and with enough work, a suitable partner.

                                "It's up to you," Emery holds the ball out and the Eevee doesn't hesitate to press both its paws forcefully into the button three times until it's sent inside.

                                As five people had claimed their pokemon before he did, he was starting to lose faith. He looked from group to group. The most curious one was the red head and an Eevee. Why would an Eevee choose her? Did this red head actually have a nice side? Perhaps she was the way she is because of her past? It wasn't out of the ordinary.

                                He went from pokemon to pokemon, but all of them turned away from him.

                                "Did they choose the wrong person? Was I mistaken for someone else?" Alex asked himself.

                                He laid back on the grass on the roof, looking up. It was still really early. He could smell bacon and coffee cooking down below. He could hear the river and the fountain. He heard the people continuing to talk down bellow. He heard what sounded like a pokemon battle.
                                He put his hands on his head and looked up into the sky. He saw a few bird pokemon flutter by, yet none caught his eye. Marshmallow clouds hovered by in the sky. It would be a pretty day to start a journey, but how without a pokemon.

                                He heard a splash of water. He thought it might be the river and disregarded it, but then he heard again. And again. He leaned up and looked over where a small pond was. It had a four foot, countinuous waterfall, but the pond was a good size, even a small Snorlax could enjoy it. He saw a Dratini burst out of the water in an upward motion, as if trying to fly. The pokemon went too far and collided with a rock, shattering the rock with its head. The impact was a hard one indeed.. It held back tears as best as it could. It put its small serpentine head on a rock and looked skyward.

                                Alex got up and walked over to the little Dratini. The Dratini looked up at him and rolled over.

                                Alex squatted next to the pokemon. "Hey little guy. What's wrong?" Alex asked, placing a hand on the Dratini's head, where it had collided with the rock.

                                The Dratini looked up at the sky, 'Tini tini dratini tini.' The pokemon said.

                                Alex looked up, seeing bug pokemon fly by, "You want to fly?"

                                The Dratini sprung up and used its body like a spring to hop in place, 'Tini tini dratini tini!' The pokemon cried.

                                Alex smiled, "You got some pretty good height with that Aqua Jet. But you know, to fly, you got to become big and strong. You can't be so timid. You have to keep going and never give up until the very end."

                                Dratini jumped at Alex, wrapping its body around his. The little Dratini nuzzled up against him and the licked him in the cheek.

                                "You want to come with me?" Alex asked.

                                Dratini said nothing. It leaped at the silver ball and was sucked in. It didn't even shake once before clicking.. Alex smiled, knowing they would become friends. The Dratini came back out of the ball and sprang away from Alex and did an Aqua Jet in place. It was pretty amazing and would take a ton of skill for any normal pokemon to do it, but this was a Dratini, a pokemon no usually weak. It was basically a knock off legendary with an evolution line. He remembered the term was something like Pseudo-legendary. To Alex,It looked like Dratini was riding a wave. It was more of just a fun little thing that Dratini seemed to love, but it wouldn't be much use in battle.

                                "I think I will name you Wave." Alex said, watching his new Dratini using the aqua jet.

                                Ryan kept walking, taking in the sights. "Who says Pokemon training is all fighting? This is a lovely place, with plenty for everyone, and everyone's getting along great." He sighed, watching the others bond with their starters. "This is boring. Where's the action? Where's the adventure?" He tossed the silver ball into the air, accidentally smacking it as he tried to catch it. He watched it bounce off a rock and roll out of sight, chasing after it in panic.

                                He jumped over the rock, landing in a waist-deep puddle of water. "Ah! Oh, come on!" He yelled in surprise, before something hit him in the back of the head. He turned, seeing the silver ball floating next to him, and a blue amphibian standing by the shore. The frog pumped its fist triumphantly, hopping from one foot to the other. "What, you think you caught me? The Pokemon caught the human for once?" Froakie nodded, grinning. "I'm pretty sure it's the other way around!"

                                Ryan grabbed the ball and threw it at Froakie, who vanished inside without a fight. He climbed out of the pond, retrieving the ball and heading back to the others. "I've got my first Pokemon! Um... does anyone have a towel?"

                                Brian began to worry that the kids were taking too long. He began to pace the floor, walking with one foot in front of the other like he was on a tightrope. Finally, after almost a half hour of agonizing pain, the kids returned to the first floor of the lab, each holding their pokeballs, which were now slowly changing color to match their pokemon's typing. Brian grew nervous, not only was their journey ahead going to be tough, but he now had to suddenly explain to them that they're abnormal freaks and it's all his fault. He decided it was best to leave the second part out. You know, for their sake.

                                "So, you've all heard of Hybrids, right?"

                                He waited to get a response. This conversation would be so much harder if they didn't know.


                                Ryan was one of the first ones down, looking for a way to dry off after his impromptu dip in the pond. Oddly, he can't find one, and resigns himself to being wet for the duration of the meeting.

                                Tyre walked his way downstairs after having his newly acquired Gastly. Without Tyre knowing, the Pokeball in has hand started changing from silver to a blackish purple. Once at the bottom of the staircase, he heard professor asking a question.

                                "So, you've all heard of Hybrids, right?"

                                Who hasn't? They're known world wide for being cursed with Pokemon skills. The most notable Hybrids are the Prime 5 Hybrids. The ones who took down Team Rocket and their associates involved with the Hybrid experiments. Odd that he would mention Hybrids now. There hasn't been any recent cases or news about them for a while.

                                "Yeah. I know about them."


                                Myra smiled as she looked around to see everyone with their Pokemon partner. She stood up and tossed her golden locks and decided to go back downstairs to talk to the crazy professor. Her heels clicked against the stairs as she made her way to the bottom. Tink's Pokeball was changing color. It was slowly becoming less silver and more pink.

                                She decided she would ask the professor about it. As Myra took the last step she saw the professor pacing back and forth like a lunatic. Maybe now wasnt the best time to ask about the pokeball.

                                She nodded at what he said. "Of course. Hybrids are Pokemon Human mixtures. It started off as an experiment by Team Rocket. A few years back... 20, I think. Some of these hybrids escaped. They grew up and found each other and took Team Rocket down. They somewhat settled into society... I did Hybrids as my final project." she said with a proud smile, showing she wasn't just all beauty.

                                "it's rumored that lately people have been experimenting with Hybrids and some may still be out there. It's probably just a rumor though. I dont think they could make hybrids without them knowing... And if they were out there, they would probably make themselves known as superheroes or something... But thats all speculation. Why do you ask?" She said crossing her arms.


                                Garett grabbed the pokeball and stood up. Out of all the pokemon I could have had for my starter, I got a stupid bird... Garett shook his head as he clipped the pokeball to his belt and walked back to the stairs.

                                Garett made his way down the stairs and leaned back against his spot on the wall. He looked down and gave the pokeball on his belt a quizzical look as it started changing from silver to cream. Never heard of pokeballs changing color. That‘s actually pretty cool. I wonder how many more of these there are. Garett looked up as Brian asked if everyone knew about Hybrids. He silently nodded then glanced at Myra as she answer Brian‘s question.

                                "Many people view them as freaks even today." Garett said, finally speaking up for once, "But what does this have to do with getting a pokemon?"


                                Before heading back downstairs, Alex looked over at the male who had just gotten a Froakie and asked about a towel. He thought he could recall the name only slightly, and the name was Ryan.

                                "Sorry man, I don't. Probably need to get one though. The Professor might have one. Speaking of which, we probably should all head downstairs." Alex had said.

                                He returned Dratini to the poke ball and started to walk downstairs. As he got to the bottom, the ball started to change into the color of what was associated with the dragon and flying typings. He heard the professor ask if we knew about hybrids.

                                "Oh yes! I have studied them. Apparently they were ordinary kids who Team Rocket had experimented on. A group banded together to beat them back and the slowly started to meld into normal life. However they still have problems from time to time." Alex had answered.

                                Alex looked back at the pokeball. So the balls seem to only catch pokemon who choose their trainer. Once together, the ball turns into the color of the type of pokemon inside. Interesting. I wonder how many of these 'silver balls' there are. Alex wondered.


                                "What do you mean they still have problems from time to time? What problems? You know one of them is like uber successful. She's a movie star and model and gym leader and stuff. That doesn't sound like she has any problems." Myra said with a small frown and looking back at Alex. She then turned her attention toward Garrett. He was kind of cute... he had the whole bad boy thing going on. She was going to reply to what he had said but decided against it.


                                Alex smiled and looked over at the blonde girl, "Before I explain, maybe we should know each other's names first. Mine is Alex Hunt. What's your name blondey? I think I have possibly seen you in Vanville, but I am not sure." He asked, waiting for an answer before explaining the truth.

                                Myra looked back over to Alex. She guessed it was probably a good idea to know everyones name. "It's not blondie. I'll tell you that." She said smirking a little.

                                "Nice to meet you Alex. My name is Myra. Myra Rose and yes you have seen me around Vanville. I went to the academy. My house is the beautiful white one on the hill... It's like giant and it has the golden gates. I was also like top of our class." she said with a small smile.


                                "Beauty and Brains, always a great combination. It is nice to meet you Myra. As you said a few may be doing well, but a lot of people can't let old hatreds die. What you say is true, but a lot of them still suffer. They may not be completed hated like they once were, but some people still hate them, even when they did save the world. That is how the human race is." Alex said looking over at the blonde.


                                "I would say some hybrids are loved more than others. Especially when they can probably give out more pleasure than a normal human." He said jokingly.

                                Myra giggled at the compliment. "Alex dear boy. Flattery will get you no where. But thank you." she said winking at him.

                                "However you're correct..." she said frowning. She hated that some hybrids were still hated even after they saved the world.

                                "What is that supposed to mean?" she asked with her mouth opened widely.


                                Alex chuckled slightly and walked over to Myra and placed a hand on her head, "Dear boy? Haha you seem to be the youngest of us all. And you will understand what I mean one day." Rubbing her head, messing her hair up a little.


                                "Dont touch me! And I understand what you mean you perv!" She said fixing her hair.

                                Alex laughed and walked away from Myra. Thinking she would be fun the tease throughout the journey.

                                Emery had followed the rest down and listened as Professor Brian nervously asked if they were aware of Hybrids. Who wasn't? Hybrids were hated for being powerful. End of story. People don't like what they can't understand - Hybrids were different which gave ample reason for Humans to shun them, report them and wish them death.

                                "Would you two shut up?" Emery snaps at Myra and... Alex? She wasn't paying that much attention. "Professor Twitchy over here clearly has something to say."


                                "Ah, but he isn't saying anything right now is he? Lighten up red. No need to burn the place down like a fire type. Right?" He gave a weary smile, knowing that it probably wasn't the best thing to say to the one he was weary of.

                                "What is your name red?" Alex asked.


                                Red? Emery looks him up and down slowly - he's dressed for a photoshoot, his bangs are too long and his eyes are way too gentle to match his personality. She chuckles and reaches out, one hand on her hip and using the other to tousel his hair.

                                "You're adorable. Stupid, but adorable."


                                "I will take that as a compliment!" He smiled turning to look toward the guy who was also down the steps already.

                                "What about you? You didn't seem to have much fun with the Rufflet. I think kicking the poor little bird was a bit much though, surprised it came back to you after that. What is your name?"


                                Garett rolled his eyes as he watched the three trainers chatting and bickering. And this is why I don‘t normally talk to people."Huh?" Garett snapped out of thought as Alex walked up to him.

                                "Well I didn‘t really mean to kick him. I just reacted to getting attacked." That little feathery asshole. "But the name‘s Garett".


                                "Nice to meet ya Garett. Next time you want to kick a pokemon though, make sure it is a bug type. I think those are safe to kick." He smiled, walking over to a window to look out. His stomach started to growl. That walk made me hungrier than a snorlax in the middle of a desert, with no food in sight. I should have ate more.


                                Myra looked at the exchange between the Red head and Alex. She liked the Red head after all, she seemed cool. She then looked over at the bad boy who's name was Garett.

                                "Garett? I've always liked that name." she said offering him a small smile, then looking back at Professor Brian.

                                "So are you gonna tell us why youre acting all stupid or...?"


                                Garett gave a silent nod to Myra‘s comment on his name. Weird. Not like my name is special or anything. Wait...

                                Ryan stood off to the side, still unsure of what to say to everyone. "Well, if we're introducing ourselves, I'm Ryan. I think I've seen you all around town, but I've never actually spoken to any of you before." He started to trail off. "I don't get out much..."

                                Tyre looked at the people talking amongst themselves. He was relatively surprised that nobody came up to him. He liked it like that. The only interactions he made so far was with the professor, his Pokemon, and that pretty blonde girl.

                                He kept to himself, remaining as subliminal as possible.


                                Versai followed the small group back down the steps after returning her new Pokémon to its pokeball. As she walked down the steps she noticed that the ball was changing color, taking on an orangish-red, with faint tints of purple mixed in. It looks like the ball is on fire…like Fennekin. Do all the silver balls do this? She’s surprised she’s never seen balls like this. Certainly something so interesting must sell well…unless the catch rate is poor, thus they only worked because these Pokémon wanted to be obtained by these trainers.

                                As per usual, Versai leans against the door frame quietly. By the time she got downstairs, the blonde girl was already answering his question in extreme detail. Soon arguments began to erupt between the other trainers; debating whether hybrids were better or worse off than regular humans. In the end she decided to stay out of it. Adding more fuel to the fire wasn’t exactly her forte, nor anything she enjoyed. Some people fear hybrids, some people fear Pokémon. Many people fear whatever they believe to be stronger than them, it’s simply human nature. It’s not until the arguments and (what she can only presume is flirting) dies down that she decides to speak up.

                                “Is there something we should know about hybrids, professor?”


                                Myra looked to the back of the room as she heard a calm voice. It was the pretty girl from earlier. She had long black hair, blue eyes, and she was pretty.

                                "Hey you." she said walking back to Versai and looking her up and down.

                                "What's your name?" she asked tilting her head to the left a little.


                                Versai bites back the urge to question if the girl was talking to her. Of course she was, she was approaching her, and everyone else in the room had addressed themselves to the very pretty young lady. “Versai.” She offers her calm, if not slightly saddened, smile.

                                “Versai Penumbra.” The last name probably wasn’t required or wanted. “And you’re…Myra, right? I’ve always liked that name.” It’s got a charming ring to it, and it sounds like it could be short for miracle. Lovely


                                "Versai huh? That's unique... I like it!" she said with a smile. She was happy to hear Versai talk, she had a lovely soothing voice.

                                "Yes. Myra Rose. And its a pleasure to meet you Versai Penumbra. Thank you very much!" she smiled.

                                "Flattery will get you everywhere you know." she said snickering a little. Myra went and stood a little closer to Garett, who was chilling on the back wall. Total loner bad boy. He was mysterious and Myra wanted to know more.


                                “I’ve heard as much.” Versai giggles quietly. She really likes this girl, she’s outspoken and has a fearless air about her, both good qualities to have for the kind of journey they’re about to take part in.

                                Myra strides away and goes to stand next to one of the boys—a boy that gave off that strong, silent, brooding vibe. He’s also not bad to look at. It’s that thought that causes Versai to glance at Myra over her shoulder and flash a subtle wink. They would make a cute match.


                                Alex listens to Myra and Versai. Learning the older females name. Ok missy. I will definitely pick on you from here on out every now and then. He thought as he looked around the room, waiting for the other two to come down and the Professor to speak. Wait... that name.... why does it sound familiar?

                                Brian was hesitant at first, allowing them to continue getting to know each other. but, he knew they were running short on time and cut them off.

                                "There are two reasons why I brought it up. Firstly," he said, holding a ball of fire in his hand, "I am one. and secondly," he continued, but was interrupted by the shocked faces of the kids.


                                Myra watched Professor Brian as he spoke. When he summoned the ball of fire in his hand. She didnt show much emotion but her eyes sparkled. Myra had always loved Hybrids they were so cool. However she did scoot a little closer to Garett and flinched a little.

                                "And secondly what? Brian... What are you hiding...? Tell me!" she said her voice getting shrill and her lips getting pouty.


                                "You're a what?"

                                For a second, Emery thinks she might have heard him wrong, that her ears were still plugged with Myra's cheery voice to fully understand - but his face remains twitching. This is why he was so nervous.

                                She grins, "you're a badass, huh?" What she would give to have that type of power, that ability to make others cower in fear... Emery casts a look around at the others to gauge their reactions - who wouldn't be in total awe of this guy?


                                Oh. Versai looks to the professor with slightly widened eyes. That wasn’t what she was expecting, although…there was only so many reasons why he would bring up hybrids at a time like this, so it’s not the biggest shock.

                                And secondly…

                                And secondly, what? Does this have something to do with why they were chosen? Why they were told to get here so quickly? Is this…about them…?


                                Garett‘s eyes widened when he saw that the professor was a hybrid. Garett finally snapped out of his train of thought again and noticed Myra now standing next to him and flinching. He pushed off the wall and stood straight, placing his left hand on the pokeball on his belt and staring intensely at the professor.

                                "Oh. So that is why the name sounds familiar. You were part of the group who helped those years ago." Alex thought for a moment.

                                "Do you know Arryn!? She is supposed to be an Ice hybrid! I want to meet her. I want to meet her! PLEASE!?" Alex fanboyed.


                                Tyre kept is calm, expressionless composure after hearing and seeing the professor was a Hybrid. It makes sense. Why else would he bring up Hybrids unless he was one?
                                Tyre really did like the fact that he was in the presence of someone who can destroy everything in a few seconds. It kind of made him shiver in excitement.

                                He had so many questions to ask, but the professor wasn't finished explaining yet.


                                Ryan didn't know what to say, but he knew better than to interrupt someone in the middle of an explanation. "Guys, maybe we should let him finish...?"

                                "How about you all just shut your mouths for one second and let me explain!" Brian practically yelled at them. Whenever he used his fire abilities he tended to get a bit, angry at everything.

                                "The fact that I'm a hybrid is not the most important thing right now. The fact that you're all a new breed of half pokemon freaks is what I'm trying to tell you!"

                                Brian knew he probably should have worded that better.

                                "Look, just use these," he said, handing them each a modified holocaster. "It's called a holodex, it'll not only scan pokemon, but also people. It will tell you your typing, level, and age, gender, but you should already know those things. Give them a try, we have like twenty minutes before the attack. Have at it!"


                                Emery is not one to be easily shocked. Uncle Dev was the last shock of her life - him showing up at the police department to sign for full custody in sandals and no shirt was a little alarming to an eight year old - so nothing has really surprised her since. Yet, here we are.

                                Snatching the Holodex from the Professor, Emery turns it on, brows furrowed. What the hell is going on? We're freaks? We're under attack?


                                Myra frowned as Brian yelled at them. She bit her bottom lip and let him speak, she wasnt going to piss off the man that can bend fire. She almost had an aneurysm when Brian told them that they were 'Half Pokemon Freaks'. That meant they were all hybrids. She walked up to Brian.

                                "We're all hybrids...?" she said a little scared and a little excited. She snatched the Holodex from Brian and turned it on. She turned around and looked at Garett. She used the holodex to scan Garett and watched in amazement as it told her all about them.

                                "Garett... You are a Twenty year old male... You are a Poison Type... And you are level one!"

                                "Someone scan me now!" she said with an excited smile.

                                She was way too excited to worry about the attack. "How do we use our powers?!" She screamed at Brian her voice getting higher the more excited she got.


                                I‘m a- a hybrid? Garett shook his head in disbelief. "What the hell do you mean we‘re half pokemon?!" Garett took his holodex then glared at the professor. "And what‘s this about an attack?" Garett said with an obviously angry tone in his voice.

                                Irritated by the professor‘s lack of reaction to his question, Garett turned around and activated his dex. Garett looked up as Myra started saying information about him. "Believe it or not but I already knew my age and gender." he said sarcastically with a grin. "Poison‘s pretty cool though." [Would have been cooler if could have started with a Seviper.[/I]


                                "I guess we know you aren't related to Professor Oak then." Alex told Garett, before he could continue.

                                Myra rolled her eyes and giggled a little at what Garett had said. "Shut up." she said giggling and then letting out a loud scream finding out what type she was.

                                Garett tapped away at the dex hitting wrong buttons and opening pages he didn‘t need. I have no clue how this damn thing works. After what felt like an eternity Garett finally figured out how the scanner worked and pointed it at Myra.

                                "Fun fact, you‘re a female. Says you‘re a fairy type." Never thought I‘d talk this much to someone I don‘t even know. Especially consideting I‘m pretty sure she was that rich snob from school.


                                "FAIRY? THATS SO COOL!" she squealed as she threw her arms around Garett. It was just something she did out of excitement. She couldnt help but notice how nice his arms were.

                                Emery rolls her eyes as Myra's type is revealed. Shocker.

                                Garett stumbled backwards as Myra randomly threw herself at him. This is a little weird since we just met but you‘re kinda cute so I‘ll let it slide Garett put his arms around Myra for a few seconds before breaking the hug. "Our types are cool and all but he did mention an attack. I think we should focus a little more on that."

                                Myra blushed a little on the hug and stepped back from him, fixing her hair a little and nodding in agreement.

                                "Uh yeah. You're right." she said awkwardly. She would not accept this bubbly feeling in her gut.


                                At this point, Tyre didn't know what to say, or even think for that matter. He was listening to everyone talk and cheer about there types. He wasn't too worried about the attack, since we had a Hybrid professor in the room to protect us all. What he was more concerned with, was his typing.

                                People all seemed to have some cool typings. Someone was poison, Someone was Fairy. He wanted to be something amazing. Like a Dragon type or a Fire type. He hoped he wasn't anything pathetic, like a bug type or normal type. It would seriously make him regret being alive.

                                He went up to the professor and took the Holodex and fiddled with it for a bit. Moments later, he figured out how to scan somebody and accedentally scanned the red head girl in front of him.

                                "... Fire huh?"

                                He didn't want to rely on anybody to scan him, so he memorized the button combination and pointed the Holodex towards himself. Once he heard the little jingle which notified him the scan was a success, he hesitantly began to look at the Holodex, praying he wasn't anything garbage.

                                He first read the basic information he already knew. "Age, 22. Gender, Male. Type... Steel."

                                "Steel?!" He shouted, wondering why steel. "Why couldn't it have been something cooler, like electric, or ice..." He groaned in dissapointment. He began to think about Pokemon that were steel types. Magnemite. Klink. Probopass. Just thinking about the pokemon associated with the steel typing made his stomach turn.

                                "...Really... Great... Just great. I find out I'm a Hybrid just like the Prime 5 but have a typing that isn't elite in the slightest."

                                He groaned a few more times before finally accepting the fact that his typing was trash and there was nothing he could do about it.


                                Ryan caught the Holodex that the Professor practically threw at him, still reeling from the expositional onslaught. "Wait, what was that about an attack?!"

                                Half Pokémon freaks?

                                Versai’s first reaction is to reject Brian’s words completely, take them as a sick joke and walk away before he can take up any more of their time.

                                At least…that’s what she wanted to do, wanted to believe…If only everything didn’t add up so completely. This /is/ why they were told to hurry, this is why they were chosen, out of so many people that wanted to start their journey , this….

                                Attack?!

                                Versai’s eyes narrow as she walks towards the professor, taking the machine from him with the slightest hint of reluctance. “We have twenty minutes before some kind of attack, and you want us to play with your new device? What kind of attack is this, and how do you know about it?”

                                They shouldn't be playing around. They shouldbe running, or hiding, or setting up some kind of defense. Something, anything! She looks to the device in her hands and points it towards herself. If they're going to fight...best know what she's made of...literally.

                                "Dark type." She speaks quietly. That makes too much sense, to be quite honest. Her desire to remain in dark places, her fondness to veil herself in dark colors. "Shadow Tag." She continues. At least that's...useful.


                                As everyone listed to Brian and Alex smiled. Was Alex the only one happy? He had always dreamed to be a hybrid or at least part of one. He looked up to the others, especially the one called Shadow. And he was basically in love with the one called Arryn because of her Ice type. Alex took up the Holodex and scanned himself. He read everything he already knew and then Ice type and Water Veil popped up. He didn't explode like he wanted to, He held it in.

                                "Awesome, I have an Ice typing like Arryn. Not only that, but I can't get burned." Alex said, "Guess that also explains why I like the cold more than warm. Although, I still love warm weather."


                                "We'll see if you get burned or not." Emery challenged.

                                He heard Emery say something, And it made him grin. He was surpised. He walked up to Emery and scanned her, without asking.

                                "Well I will be a Chimchar's Uncle. You are a fire type after all. I guess that explains why I have been so weary of you. You definetly have the attribute of a hot headed Charizard. You also have the ability Flash Fire." He smiled, "But don't think your flames will be melting my ice."


                                Fire type. She actually smiles - not one of her ultra-rare genuine smiles, but one that curves at the corner and probably unsettles more than a few people in the vicinity.

                                He looked at Emery. He was a bit surprised that she had not yet tried to slap or punch him in the face, "Our relationship will be interesting to say the least. But, I can adapt when what makes me weary is known and not unknown."

                                A few moments passed before the rest of Brian's words had actually made it to Alex's brain.

                                "Wait.... an attack." He said, suddenly turning serious.


                                Versai was right. They were wasting time playing with the devices and buzzing about their typing. Professor Brian was out of his damn mind for dropping a bombshell like this and forcing them to prepare for battle already.

                                "How do we use our powers?" Emery growls and feels frustrated with herself - I'm not even questioning this or his judgement. Stop going soft.

                                She rests a hand on her newly required caramel coloured Pokeball.


                                He watched as Emery put her hand on her pokeball and he did the same thing. "Not the time guys. We can all get together after this attack." He told everyone in the room, now more serious than anyone has seen him so far.

                                “I don’t think we have time to learn.” The clock is ticking. They have less than twenty minutes to prepare for an attack that they know nothing about. Where’s it coming from? Who or what’s coming after them?

                                Versai looks at the fiery Pokeball in her hand and nods, as if understanding what needs to be done. “We’ll have to fight with our Pokémon.”


                                They took too long, Brian thought. It was just then that the lights went out, the door burst open, and a whole herd of shadow grunts ran into the room. It looks like they were going to have to fight. Brian stood back and left the grunts up to the students, he had a bigger threat to attend to.

                                Ryan had prepared his whole life for this moment. As soon as the grunts kicked down the door, he rushed forward to put himself between the grunts and the girls. He knew they could probably take care of themselves, and it was a little chauvinistic, but he wouldn't let them get hurt.

                                  Part 4/4

                                  Alex wanted to throw a chair at Brian for leading them to this and then leaving them with no further instructions. The lights faltered and everything went dark. Men that he could only describe as Shadow Grunts ran into the room.

                                  "Well a Blast Burn to you too! Thanks for leaving us like this! Next time, at least give us a damned burn heal." He yelled after Brian.

                                  One of the grunts threw out a Sandile and it tried to throw sand in the direction of him and Emery. Alex quickly reacted and threw out Wave.

                                  "Aqua Jet!" Alex yelled.

                                  A torrent of water formed around the Dratini and it charged into the sand attack, causing the sand to turn to mud and fall before it could hit anyone.

                                  "I will take this one! I don't think we should use our moves or abilities unless needed. We don't know anything and I doubt we would have control over them so soon. It may just be because I would still rather not feel fire so close to be in a small space like this. We can't be reckless. What ever power we have, could easily backfire on us or one of our friends." Alex suggested.

                                  "Wave, use thunder wave on the building to see if you can jump start the power when you can. Other than that, use Aqua Jet on the Sandile!" Alex yelled.


                                  Garett looked up as the lights began flicking then went dark. This doesn‘t look good. Garett quickly turned to face the lab door as Shadow Grunts burst into the room and released their pokemon. Garett looked over and glared at Brian as the man stood back and did nothing. So that‘s how it‘s going to be? You reveal to us that we‘re a bunch of freaks and then lead us into a trap to get slaughtered? He balled his hands into fists and began walking toward the professor but stopped when he heard something moving his way.

                                  Garett shoved Myra and threw his arm up to deflect a Murkrow‘s wing attack that was aimed at her face. "Sorry about that" Garett said, looking back at Myra.

                                  Garett followed Murkrow with his eyes as he grabbed the pokeball on his belt. "Alright Rufflet. Time to see what you can do." He tossed the ball into the air releasing the eaglet pokemon. "Rufflet!" the pokemon yelled as it made a B-line for the dark bird.


                                  Everything was happening so fast. Myra just stood there as everything happened around her. People were screaming, yelling, lights were splashing, it was so crazy. Myra didn't know what was going on. However she snapped back into reality as Garett shoved her out of the way.

                                  At first she was upset but when she saw it was Garett protecting her, her anger melted away. Myra grabbed the ribbon from around her wrist and tied her hair up in a bow. It was time to fight.


                                  A few Dark Pokemon made it into the room, but Ryan thought up a plan to bottleneck the rest. "Froakie, let's go! Use your bubbles to slow them down!" Froakie pops out of his ball, looking around for his target. "The trainers. Hit them with Bubbles, and anything they send out will have to fight through your barrage barricade." Froakie reacted in surprise, but obeyed, spitting out waves of bubbles at the Shadow Grunts. Ryan once again offered Myra a hand up, knowing that lying on the ground is the worst place to be in a fight.

                                  It would seem Brian walked them all into a trap; however, there are bigger matters to tend to: There are people charging into this room, and she will be damned if she lets them get a hold of the others. She’s always been protective, and the realization that she is the oldest member of this small group only amplified that sensation tenfold.

                                  Her eyes narrow at a Sneasel that comes barreling towards them. “Fennekin! Ember attack!” She calls as she tosses the fiery Pokeball. The fire fox bursts out, releasing a stream of tiny flames to the speeding ice type.

                                  The embers made the room slightly brighter, which would help significantly if it continued. “Keep firing! Ember anything that comes close!”


                                  Alex felt the heat from an ember attack and quickly jumped away from the fire. He started backing up on the far side of Emery, away from everyone else and most away from the fire. Using Thunder Wave wouldn't be wise in a metal building live this, plus morning light was filtering in from the door and windows.

                                  "Wave, forget I asked you to use Thunder Wave when you get a chance. That was stupid on my part. Just focus on that Sandile for now." Alex told his Dratini.


                                  Tyre scanned the room once the lights went out. Professor Brian was nowhere to be found and a bunch of stupid looking grunts burst in the room with there Dark type Pokemon.

                                  Because of his lack of presence, He had a bit of time to analyze the situation before a grunt finally noticed him.

                                  All the Pokemon from the grunts side was all dark type Pokemon. A Terrible match for his Ghastly. There had to be something he could do, He just had to think.


                                  Professor Brian cowardly ran away, leaving a bunch of incompetent freaks to deal with the ten or so grunts that burst into the Lab. The lights begin to flicker at their entrance. All Emery could make out in the dark and small flashes of light were that their eyes were entirely covered. Black and Sea Green - I don't know any Team that has those colours.

                                  Emery is pushed all the way to the back during the fight. She takes the opportunity to send out her Eevee and scan it for the list of moves it can perform. Growl, Tackle, Tail Whip, Sand Attack. Level 5. Female.

                                  A woman grunt charges for her, her Sandile trotting along beside her.

                                  "Eevee, use Sand Attack against the Sandile!" Emery shouts and runs around a bench with all sorts of clipboards and files. The woman halts, momentarily confused and Emery reels back, lifting her knee and kicking her chest as hard as possible - you learn these things on the streets. The Grunt falls back, her head smashing into the floor and disoriented.

                                  Eevee had continued to blind the Sandile with sand, just as Emery instructed. "Tackle!"

                                  Just as she had done to the Chespin earlier, Eevee pounces on the Sandile as an attack, slamming her entire body into the crocodile Pokemon.


                                  Alex and Emery were now both fighting a Sandile. Alex knew that he couldn't let Dratini countinue to fight like this, or else it will be worn out before we even left the building.

                                  Hmm, I wonder if I can try to use a move... Ice would only cause minor cuts or sever freezer burn.... I got to take a chance.

                                  Going against his own 'words of advice' he tried to summon an ice beam or some other attack at the grunt while Wave fought the Sandile. Nothing happened. He tried with all his might to use an ice attack, but again failed.

                                  "To hell with it." Alex said, he ran and grabbed a chair and hurled it at the Sandile's trainer. The impact made the chair shatter across the grunt that was attacked and splinters from the chair went everywhere.

                                  Alex was blind sided by a fire attack that he thought was incenerate from the Sandile. It hit him, pushing him back. His body felt like it was burning, but within a second, a cool wave of water surronded him, fixing all burns. However, he lsot part of his shirt in the attack that was not restore. Wave finally wrapped around the Sandile and used Aqua Jet and slammed into the wall with the Sandile.

                                  There’s got to be something else I can do. Garett looked at the elemental attacks flying through the air in various directions. Well if I’m a freak then I should be able to use attacks too... Garett jumped back as Murkrow and Rufflet flew by his head, pecking and clawing each other. Garett threw his arms in front of his face to block a Night Shade attack that missed Rufflet. As his arms moved, Garett noticed purple needles shoot from between his fingers. Poison Sting? The Night Shade struck Garett, sending him flying back.

                                  Myra was thinking about what she wanted to do. She was a little hesitant to send Tink out into the midst of battle. She decided she would give her powers a go.

                                  Myra wasn't sure what to do. She thought of the fairy type attacks she knew. Maybe she could use moonblast. So she put her hands to the sky and closed her eyes then pointed them at one of the grunts. Nothing happened.

                                  Myra thought for a second before thinking of the perfect move to use. Dazzling gleam. It was the perfect move for Myra. She was dazzlingly beautiful. Myra closed her eyes and focused on this new Fairy Energy. She felt this bubbly pink feeling in her body.

                                  Her hands started to glow and sparkle. It was so much energy building up in her hands. All of the sudden these random sparkle light beamy things shot out of her hands. All of these beams fizzled but one, which hit Garett instead of the grunts. This also sent Myra tumbling backwards into the wall.

                                  This "attack" took alot of energy, it left her feeling light headed, and she wasnt going to let Tink go in there and get beat. She was gonna have to help Tink and everyone else. She slowly got back up and took a deep breath. Ryan offers her a hand up, putting himself between her and the grunts.

                                  Myra took his hand up and brushed herself off. "Thanks but I got this... Tink! Spotlight!" she said summoning the pokemon. It stood behind her looking at the fight that was going on. Tink knew what she had to do. So Myra and Tink ran into battle, side by side. Myra was punching, slapping and pulling one of the female grunts hair. Tink was using Metronome on the grunts Purrloin. The first metronome was a razor leaf, which the purrlion dodged, the next was a thundershock which seemed to do the trick. However Myra and Tink both looked like idiots.


                                  Garett rolled over onto his stomach and slowly pushed himself up. He looked ahead and watched as Myra tried to launch an attack. "Shiiiit..." Garett muttered ..." Garett muttered as he watched a beam of energy fly toward him. He tried to roll out of the way but the beam hit his side, knocking him into a wall.

                                  Garett slowly stood up and brushed off his shoulders. "Rufflet!" Garett called as he held out his arm. The pokemon landed on Garett‘s arm and looked at it’s trainer.

                                  “Wait until I say to attack.” Rufflet gave a nod and Garett followed Murkrow with his eyes. “Now!”

                                  Rufflet flew from Garett’s arm and struck Murkrow in the chest with a Peck, knocking the dark pokemon out. Garett looked over at Myra and Tink struggling to take down their opponents. “We should probably help them”, Rufflet nodded to it’s trainer and the two moved toward Myra and her Togepi. Rufflet hovered over Purrloin’s and started pecking the cat’s head. Garett walked up to the female grunt Myra was fighting and tapped on the grunt‘s shoulder.


                                  Myra looked behind the grunt she was fighting and saw Garett tapping his shoulder. Usually she would protest someone trying to help her. She was independent and hated when people babied her and thought since she was pretty she was weak. However since it was Garett she decided to let him be her knight in poison armor.

                                  When the grunt turned around to look at Garett, Myra kicked her right in the stomach bringing her to her knees.

                                  "Thanks for the help. Im not as strong as I think I am..." she confessed and then looked to see Rufflet helping out Tink. Tink kept up the metronomes before letting out a Hydro Pump that soaked Rufflet and Purrloin.


                                  Rufflet shook the water from it‘s feathers and flew to Garett as he gave a nod to Myra and took off running toward the rest of the grunts.

                                  Damn,,, even with Water Veil, I can still feel the pain. Alex thought, watching the Sandile and Dratini struggle as he grabbed his side.

                                  "Now I'm really going to have to buy new clothing." He spat, trying to sound as if he wasn't hurt. Although no physically, he could still feel the pain. Maybe in time it would become stronger.

                                  After a moment of struggle, Dratini won the battle between the Sandile. Knocking one of the Grunts out. He returned Dratini, knowing that fighting any more would put it in danger.


                                  Although Froakie's Bubbles were keeping the Grunts at bay, too many were still getting through, and the poor frog couldn't keep it up forever. Ryan knew it was time to switch tactics. "Enough, Froakie! Just focus on one at a time!" Froakie nodded his thanks, unable to spit out any more bubbles. Just then, a Poochyena rushed in, trying to Tackle Froakie. Ryan scooped him up, but the small dog jumped up and latched onto Ryan's arm. He tried to shake it off, but it refused to let go.

                                  Froakie jumped in and punched Poochyena in the snout, causing it to let go. He then jumped off Ryan's shoulder and landed on Poochyena with a perfect Frog Splash. Ryan kicked the dog as Froakie hopped back to his side, mustering the strength for another Bubble, sending the pooch scrambling for safety. Ryan tore off a strip of his shirt to bandage his arm, but the bleeding wasn't too bad.


                                  While everyone was battling he came to the conclusion that he would have to fight the grunts and Pokemon on his own. He had to, otherwise ghastly would get beat by anything thrown at him. He couldn't risk losing the Pokemon he's just obtained so he took a fighting stance.

                                  Soon, a grunt finally noticed Tyre and sent out a Sableye.

                                  "... Sableye? Maybe don't have to fight after all..." He mumbled, sending out his ghastly. He was somewhat dissapointed that he did a whole bunch of planning for no reason, but he was relieved he didn't have to make a fool of himself trying to learn what his steel abilities are in the heat of the moment.

                                  "Alright Spooks. Destroy the Sableye." He commanded. He didn't know any of his Ghastly's moves, so he'd hope Ghastly would understand how to fight and do things for him.

                                  Sure enough, Ghastly attacked the Sableye using one of it's most well known moves. "Lick."

                                  Spooks licked the Sableye once. One time was all it took for the enemy pokemon to become paralyzed. Because Sableye couldn't move, spooks used that as an opportunity to lick over and over again until the opponent Sableye passed out.

                                  "... I guess we clucthed it didn't we?" He said to ghastly, quite satisfied with his easy victory.

                                  The grunt swore under his breath a few times before calling back his Sableye. He then knew it was pointless trying to continue, so he blended in with his fellow grunts, not doing anything.

                                  To avoid further confrontation, Tyre simply blended with his surrounding, becoming completely unoticable. He then sat and watched everyone else handle there problems.

                                  Chaos was erupting around them. The odds weren’t in their favor to begin with, and now, fearful and desperate, her teammates were making their situation worse by trying to use powers that they only discovered they had moments ago. Myra was trying her hardest, but her powers only managed to damage one of their own.

                                  Their Pokémon are outnumbered and outclassed, each of them at the mere level five. Meanwhile, the Pokémon they did manage to knock out were quickly replaced with others. If there’s ten grunts, and each has six Pokémon, that’s sixty…sixty Pokémon they’re asking their very new partners to take on.

                                  …But there’s only ten grunts.

                                  “Fennekin.” Versai speaks in an eerily calm voice. While her normal voice has a soothing quality to it, what’s coming from her mouth now seems almost robotic in how cool and monotone it is. Versai reaches for the scarf around her neck and quickly discards it onto the floor, along with her long jacket. Fennekin turns to its trainer, panting from the stream of embers that have been shooting from its mouth for several minutes now.

                                  Versai motions to her shoulder, and the tiny fox hops on. “Don’t let go.” She instructs in the same unsettling tone.

                                  A Scraggy notices the little fox taking refuge in its trainer’s hair and launches itself into a jump kick, which Versai pivots away from, leaving the Pokémon to smash into the floor below. From there she begins to weave around the onslaught of Pokémon—they simply aren’t what she’s after.

                                  Seeing the woman coming for them, a male grunt thrusts a punch in her direction. Versai grabs onto the man’s wrist and, using the force of his own weight against him, heaves him against the nearest wall. Her actions do not go unnoticed; another grunt rushes towards her from the side, his frantic footsteps make it impossible for Versai not to notice, and she retaliates by wheeling her leg in a semi-circle, plowing a forceful kick into his stomach.

                                  As the second grunt falls, Versai steadies her legs into a balanced stance. Her arms raise over her chest in a defensive manner, awaiting another attack. Her calm eyes are now dangerously narrowed, and her resting peaceful expression was long gone; replaced with an almost unnaturally cold stare.


                                  Emery watches the exchange between the fallen Grunt and Versai. Her earlier shy demeanor changed in an instant, her expression uncaring and distant.

                                  Most of the Grunts' Pokemon were defeated, with four of them having been knocked around themselves. Having caught onto Versai's plan, Emery grabs the collar of a Grunt heading straight for the guy with a Froakie. She pulls him back against her, hooking an arm around his neck in a choke hold, her hand now grabbing a fistful of his hair.

                                  "Who are you guys?" She demands, all traces of excitement erased by the severity of what they were facing. They were here for a reason, and if it had anything to do with what they were - she was going to find out.


                                  As Alex tried to regain himself, he watched as the quiet female had completely changed and watched as the red head had caught another one in a choke hold. As he turned to see if he could assist, he was blind sided by a punch to the face. The hit was a hard hit and it made him fall to the ground. He felt blood running down his face from his nose. He got up and turned at the guy who had punched him in the face. He wipe blood from his mouth and looked at the darkish red blood.

                                  Alex's eyes narrowed, "That was an..... unwise decesion." He said with a hint of sacasm in his voice, spitting blood out that had seaped into his mouth and turning his attention to the same man.

                                  The man didn't falter and he tried to punch Alex in the face again, but this time, Alex dodged it. He side stepped the man and grabbed the poor guys arm. He then grabbed the man's head with his free hand and slammed the guys head into the wall, hard, possibly a bit too hard as it left a dent in the wall. The man fell to the ground, no sure if he was still alive. But he was sure the man wasn't that weak.

                                  Another grunt charged at Alex, Alex simply grabbed the man's fist, spun to the side, twisting the arm and brought his elbow down on the man's arm. Hitting it the joint, caused a loud snap, anyone near could have heard it, The man fell to his knees in agony and Alex spun around and kicking the man in the head, knocking him out, he hoped.

                                  "Don't ever punch me in my face." Alex spat, turning his attention back to the group. He had to admire both females for being so strong. It was crystal clear to him that it wouldn't be wise to piss one of them off. He definetly didn't want to be on the recieveing end of the their attacks.


                                  Garett pointed his arm and tried to launch a Poison Sting at Murkrow‘s trainer as the man returned his pokemon. Nothing happened so Garett dropped his arm and charged at the man who was now running at him.

                                  Garett ducked and dodged one punch but took another punch to his face, causing him to stumble back. The grunt started throwing punch after punch at Garett. Garett dodged and blocked more punches before taking a kick to the gut. Garett looked behind him then grabbed his stomach and dropped to his knees, faking pain from the kick. As soon as Garett hit the ground Rufflet swooped in and slammed into the man’s face. As the man stepped back, swinging at the bird, Garett grinned and jumped up.

                                  Garett swiftly moved behind the grunt and put the man in a headlock. The man struggled to remove Garett’s arm but couldn’t pry his neck free. Failing to remove Garett’s arm, the grunt flipped Garett over his back and onto the ground. Garett let out a loud grunt as he slammed hard into the ground and rolled to his stomach. He spit blood out of his mouth then looked to his right as he spotted a broken shard of glass. He grabbed the piece of glass and jumped up, using his palm to force the shard into the grunt’s throat. Garett finished the man off with a punch to the face, poison pins shooting out of his hands and sticking in the man’s forehead on impact. Oh, so now Poison Sting wants to work. Garett looked around the room at the ongoing chaos. How much longer is this going to last?


                                  Tyre watched as everyone struggled. Did he really have it easy? His opponent only had one Pokemon. Was it right to let everyone struggle?

                                  The thought of him just standing there while everyone slowly perished was something he thought he didn't care about, but after thinking about it. It'd be a shame if he was the last survivor. He would like to know atleast 1 Hybrid was alive and well.


                                  Myra looked around the room. Everyone was doing such a good job fighting, except her. She knew that she wasn't weak. Well she was physically weak. Myra had to think on her feet. She ran over to the computer and pulled out the extension chord, turning it into some type of whip like thing. She went over to the group of grunts who were defeated. She wrapped the chord around them and pulled it tight, making sure they weren't going anywhere.

                                  There were six gaurds left and she figured that she would probably be in the way if she tried to help. Myra knew this was going to be a serious problem. She was going to have Versai train her how to fight with her fists, not just with weapons. Because there wasnt always weapons, like now. She did want to try another dazzling gleam so she raised both of her hands and tried to fire another dazzling gleam with her eyes open. They fired out of her hands, most of them fizzling and the other 2 that hit the gaurd didnt pack much of a wallop.

                                  When Myra looked over at Garett he was on the ground spitting up blood. She gasped a little and continued to watch. She didn't want to try and help and hit him again. Then Garett jammed a peice of glass in the grunts throat. Then poison stung him in the face. Myra watched as the grunts faced swelled up. She looked over at Garett. He was so powerful and strong but she wasn't going to show it.

                                  "Garett.. are you alright?"


                                  Garett looked down at the grunt struggling to breathe as Rufflet landed on Garett’s shoulder. Garett looked at Myra as she said his name. He gave her a thumb’s up then started moving toward the rest of the fight.

                                  Brian knew Orchid was on her way through the secret entrance. He ran to meet up with her before she could get to the kids, although he was starting to realize they weren’t as incapable as he thought when he heard screams of grunts writhing in pain. In his momentary distraction, Orchid slammed into him, sending him sprawling onto the ground.

                                  “About time you showed up.” He coughed out.

                                  “About time you learned how to fight. It’s been ten years and you’re still as weak as the day we met.” She grinned, kicking him in the side.

                                  He gasped, trying not to vomit up his lunch. Orchid, noticing his face, screamed.

                                  “Not on my shoes!”

                                  He grinned, the distraction allowing him to spin his legs around and knock her over.

                                  “Idiot.” He laughed.

                                  They spent at least ten minutes fighting, Brian using his flaming fists and small knowledge of martial arts, and Orchid, using her gracefulness and bullet-proof parasol. It was a very close fight, at first, until Orchid smartened up and began to use poisonous attacks. Brian was slowly backed down the hall to the main room, Orchid staring at the exhausted professor in glee.

                                  “Ready to die?” she grinned.

                                  “Not before you do Orchid.” He retorted.

                                  “Do not ever, ever, call me that again. It’s Flora, you disrespectful little…”

                                  “Why? Afraid of living in Tulip’s shadow? Had to change your name just so people wouldn’t point at you and laugh?”

                                  Her face was beet red. She screamed, and ran, pushing Brian into the main room, into the group of exhausted or dead grunts, right where the group of new hybrids stood watching. Brian laughed, and sent a huge, blue fireball into her face. She screamed in agony, the left side of her face had a huge burned mark that ran from her nose to her ear. She was mad, to say the least.

                                  Letting out a noise that could be compared to a lion’s roar, she pinned Brian to the floor, driving the poisoned tip of her heel into his neck. She looked up, proud, and noticed that all her backup was either unconscious, or dead. She sneered.

                                  “I’ll be back to kill you all later. Right now I’m content with murdering this traitor.” She kicked some dirt at Brian and then melted into the shadows, completely invisible, and retreated.

                                    Garett Temero

                                    _______________________________________________________


                                    Garett spun around as he heard Brian and a mysterious woman enter the room, fighting. Garett watched in confusion as Brian launched a fireball into the woman's face then get pinned down by her heel. “I’ll be backto kill you all later. Right now I’m content with murdering this traitor.” She said before disappearing.

                                    Garett looked at the professor who was now lying on the floor, presumably dead. Well I guess it’s too late to give him a piece of my mind. He turned back to check for more grunts but only saw the othertrainers. “Let’s see if there are any more of them outside.” Garett said to Rufflet as he walked to the door.

                                    Garett stepped outside and, seeing no grunts in the area, leaned back against the wall and slid to the ground. “I’m glad that’s over with.” Garett said as he hit the ground. Rufflet hopped off Garett’s shoulder and stood on the trainer’s feet staring up at him. “For a stupid bird you sure can fight.” Rufflet grimaced at it’s trainer. “Alright, I’m sorry. You’re not a stupid bird.” The tiny eaglet puffed out it’s chest and chirped. “I think I’ll call you something else though. How about… Little asshole? That’s fitting”. Rufflet pecked Garett’s shin again and flew up as the trainer swung at it. “Ow! You little-!” Rufflet landed on Garett’s head and leaned over, staring directly into Garett’s eyes.

                                    “Fair enough.” Garett rolled his eyes at the bird in his face. “Fine, how about… Meric? Would you prefer that?” The bird pokemon flapped it’s wings and chirped in approval. “Ok then, I’ll call you Meric”. Garett sat on the ground, bruised and bloodied from the fight, and stared off into the
                                    distance. “This is not how I expected the journey to start.”

                                    Versai PenumbraIt Begins



                                    It seems he didn't abandon them; he left them to deal with a mediocre threat in order to protect them from a much bigger one. The commotion that came from Brian falling down the steps caused Versai to plant herself firmly between the murderous woman and her fellow trainers, which was where she stood as the woman faded into the shadows.

                                    Was she...a dark type too? Was that a skill Versai could one day learn? Or...was she a ghost? Versai glances down at their professor; his eerie stillness jerks her back from her thoughts on the woman, and instead focuses on the hole she left in the man's neck.

                                    “Let’s see if there are any more of them outside.”

                                    Garrett announced as he walked to the door. No, she thought. If anyone was waiting outside they would have retreated by now.

                                    "Fen..." The fire fox whimpers as it peeks out from under Versai's hair, her brightly colored eyes focused on the professor. Versai nods to her little fox and crosses to him, slowly sinking onto her knees and placing two fingers on a pulse point, where she waits, completely still, for several seconds in hopes of detecting a pulse.

                                    Fennekin leaps down from her new trainer's shoulder and delicately nudges the man's hand with her nose.
