the team of the region, Team Fable, waaaaaaay in the past, made experiments on every 1st stage wild pokemon in the region, by using some kinda flute/some kind of signal ray to make them come to their hq hideout,

edit at 6:31 pm on 5/6/22 - ''the team of the region, Team Fable, several hundred years ago, after the events of legands arceus in the kanto region, made experiments on every pokemon in the region, be it wild or a trainer's pokemon. By using their specially designed signal ray, they made the Pokemon change their typings & overall appearance."
they'd be changing their typings & the moves they use & at what level they evolve at, the abilities too.... even the eggs would be affected (?)..... it's also, somehow irreversible, so they stay like that.......
but the people of the hotojo region had become used to it, by the time airi came around
so when professor mel brought out the starters to airi, that'd be different types & different pokemon from the normal starters....
but team fable have long since disbanded now after Nicole, realized that what they were doing was kinda wrong... & going against nature
the legendaries & mythicals have also somehow been affected..... or maybe not....

team fable's ray has a random effect on whatever its pointed at.... & they have a sort of computer thingy at their hq where they are, to first select any pokemon, to send the ray waves there, to change their typings & overall appearance
people tried to stop them, but they couldn't stop them from doing it...
i made it up, actually....
what do you think of it? :>
edit at 9:17 pm on 16/5/22 *answers to post 6* : professor mel was researching anyway out in the field... but she wanted airi to go fill the pokedex, cause she knew she wanted to be a pokemon trainer *3 years ago, when she was 7 *she's 10 now*, she told her that when she grew up, she wanted to be a trainer*
edit at 6:41 pm on 5/6/22: she noticed something different about the wild pokemon & the change with the starter pokemon & people told her about their pokemon & how they changed... she got quite a lot of research done about it...
but she warned airi when she's out there to take caution cause the pokemon started frenzying a bit cause of the type changing & such...... the starters that she has on her in the lab have long since calmed down, though
team Fable disbanded 4 years ago
people were very, very shocked about it at first... i mean, their pokemon's types, be it one type or 2 types, & overall appearance suddenly changed :0
*please do tell me if this isn't where it goes, though*
