Welcome to The Pokémon Plot’s RP page...thing.

SU/DS thread (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=114898)

Rules
1.) No godmodding whatsoever.
2.) Bunnying without permission is prohibited.
3.) We shall start in Violet City, Jhoto unless you have a late SU. If your SU is late, your character should go wherever your team (Legendarys, Keeping the secret, Getting the secret out) is for the most part.
4.) It is recommended that you have an En Route post between cities, then a leaving and arrival post, but it is not needed if hardly anyone is with you. If there are a group of people, it would be a good idea that you do so (Unless you have posted late, eh?)
5.) Please post in this format:

[Character’s Team]
[City/Town]
Ho-Oh [Human form]
Legendary
Sprout Tower, Johto
6.) Give NPC characters a chance to attack if you are attacking them unless they are Punch bag Bob. All punching bags do is getting punched and, if punched too hard, slap you in the face.

Violet City, Johto.

It was a sunny day out; no clouds could be seen in the sky whatsoever. I smiled and walked on the cobblestone streets of Violet City, Johto’s small yet second 'largest' city. I had once lived here, in another life. I looked around. I couldn’t see the Berry Man that normally stood by the Pokémon Center, handing berries to everyone whom gave him a shard.

Pokémon were running around everywhere. I could have sworn, I saw a Charmander jump out of a tree and run across the street ahead of me. I was slightly human, but some humans looked at me as if I really were the bird. My shirt seemed to be flaming at the shoulders, and my nose was a bit more pointed than normal human’s noses would be.

"Hey, dude, your shirt its-"

I never gave them a chance to finish, I just walked away. I ran towards the bridge to Sprout Tower and walked carefully over it. I didn’t walk over the second, I walked close to the water and sat down, looking back at the town.

Sweaty and sleepy, I hadn't gotten any sleep. Things were racing through my mind. I was still trying to fathom what was happening. Unknown Pokemon? I used to think that we knew everything. I guess we were wrong,

I got up from the trainer beds at the Pokemon center, said my goodbyes to Nurse Joy, and continued out the door to search for clues or something that would help me. I figure there were only two places to go, Ilex Forest or the Ruins of Alph. Both had some sort of history and seemed as if they were the place to go. I might even check out the Sprout Tower for words of wisdom. I just didn't know what to do anymore.

I decided on Ruins of Alph, since if anything was buried deep underground, this seemed the most logical. I headed out to the Sprout Tower first to seek the mens' knowledge. On the way there, I happened to see what I thought of as an act of harassment. There was a person pouring water water on a girl, with flaming shoulders? I decided to go talk to them and see if they could be of any help. I need something..anything.

Getting the secret out
Violet City, Johto


I had only arrived in Johto a few days ago and I had somehow made my way to Violet City. I heard that there were wise old men in the famous Sprout Tower which was located in the very city. Entering the city limits, it didn't take long to go spot the tall structure in the distance. Walking over the first bridge, a bright orange glow caught my eye. I spotted a girl with... flaming shoulders? ...sitting close to the water. I paid no mind to her at first since she didn't seem to be bothered by the flames as I began walking over the 2nd bridge. I was only about halfway across the bridge when that little voice in my head told me to go help her out. I groaned, walking back over to her, standing behind the fiery girl. Taking out my bottle of water, I unscrewed the cap and without any warning, I poured the water on her, though it had no visible effect.

Adjusting my glasses, I muttered softly: "..Hm... strange..."

Leaves rustled in the breeze and the Pidgey stopped singing as a human walked past me. Was he of the evil team trying to get the secret out? No matter, I didn’t wish to get in anyone’s way or anything...yet. Nothing seemed to annoy me until the girl that had walked back over, unscrewing her bottle cap and dumping water on my shoulders. Sure, they were on fire, but they were that way for a reason.

“What the...What was that for?” I asked, getting up from my sitting position. The flames on my shoulders flickered, not liking the fact that my shoulders were wet. My hair started to catch on fire, as it did when I was mad or when I was about to transform. This time, thank god, I wasn’t transforming. My hair soon stopped going crazy, turning back to its normal black color.

Violet City, Johto

I walked out of my mother’s house, waving to my parents as I left. I had told them that I would be practicing my magic today and going to the Sprout Tower to train my Espeon, Gem. I hadn’t lied; I just wasn’t going to train at the Sprout Tower, rather in front of it. It was normal for my real mother to battle in front of a special place, such as Sprout Tower. My mother couldn’t even think about battling indoors in places other than a gym.

I walked around on the cobblestone streets until I was feet away from the bridge. I saw two people, one with flames coming out of her short-sleeved shirt, and one with a black bag and glasses. Strange, I had never thought I’d see two people like that close to one another.

I attempted to ignore them and looked at Gem. She looked beautiful. Her coat has been brushed and she had a small flower by her right ear. The gem on her forehead sparkled in the sunlight. In my opinion, nothing could look more beautiful than Gem.

I held my hands up midway as the flaming girl voiced herself to me. She seemed a bit irritated at me pouring water on her. I was just trying to help.

"Whoa, chill out, girly. I was just putting out the flames.. or well.. trying to, at least."

Sighing, I put my now empty water bottle away and crossed my arms and leaned forward, inspecting the girl closer, mainly her flames.

"How do you do that? Is it some sort of flame retardant material? But how is your hair not in flames? A chemical in your hair? This is fascinating...."

I took out a pen and a small notepad.

"Please tell me how all of this is possible. I would really, really like to know!"

I saw a young man who seemed to be approaching us, as well as a woman and her Espeon walking in another direction, but I paid them no mind as I focused my gaze on the fiery girl in front of me.

"Whoa, chill out, girly. I was just putting out the flames... Or well...Trying to, at least," the girl said. She grabbed a notepad and a pen. "How do you do that? Is it some sort of flame retardant material? But how is your hair not in flames? Is it a chemical in your hair? This is fascinating. Please tell me how this is possible. I’d really like to know!”

From my thoughts, she sounded like a scientist. I thought for a second and said, “I don’t know what is in it, or how it is possible, but...” I stopped talking and thought for a second. If I told her the true story, she would probably tell everyone. If I lied, she would notice, because when I lie, the flames on my shoulders raise higher than usual. I knew I would regret this later.

“Actually, I’ll be right back, I’m sure I know a Pokémon that could help you understand.”

I ran over the bridge, starting to float ever so slightly, and dashed into the woods. Once there, I transformed into Moltres. My necklace was still on, but otherwise I was now a bird with flaming wings and a flaming crest. I flew up and out of the forest, heading toward the tower. I gracefully flew downwards when I saw the human that had been asking the questions.

My bird instincts told me to fly away, but I didn’t. I wasn’t going to run from a human.

The girl with flaming shoulders seemed to be astounded at the lady who threw water at her. I'd be too. I wanted to go see what they were talking about so I casually walked in that direction and overheard the girl trying to explain the phenomena that was her hair. She got up and ran away into the forest. I would have chased after her, but I wanted to talk to the girl.

"Excuse me Miss, but why exactly did you throw water on that girl?" I asked her.

I didn't want to beat around the bush if she knew anything of the Unknown Pokemon, so I had to make sure quick.

"Oh! Where are my manners, my name is Harry. What's yours?"

I just had to make sure she was on my side. I pulled out Elekid out just in case and let my boyish charm take course.

I arched a brow as the girl just suddenly. I was about to take chase until a man approached me. I snorted irritably as I put my notepad and pen away, crossing my arms as I turned to face the stranger.

"Why did I pour water on her? Her shoulders were on fire, duh! I figured the flames were going to hurt her, but obviously I was wrong"

He asked for my name and I figured he was being pretty straight forward.

"...Mona Nakayoshi..."

I turned away to see a Moltres descend towards me. I shrieked and fell back, landing on my butt.

"Oof!"

I looked up at the legendary phoenix in awe. I couldn't believe I was this close to such a rare Pokemon! I had always wanted to study one up close! A grim began to creep across my face as I gazed at the bird's beauty.

The girl that I had talked to earlier, upon seeing me, shrieked and fell backwards, falling on her butt.

“Oh my, sorry, I didn’t mean to scare you or anything...” I looked down, sorry for making her fall back on her butt.

I noticed the man that had walked up while I was gone. I stepped back, careful not to step into the water, and said, “And sorry to interrupt...”

I tried to hide my face behind my wing as much as I possibly could, I hated to interrupt people, but it was something I did a lot nowdays.

I couldn't believe my eyes on what just had happened. One minute I'm talking to this person and them a flying Moltres comes out of nowhere! It spoke.

"Sorry to interupt"

I couldn't even get over the fact that she was right here. I tried to keep my cool and had my Elekid stand down. I just found out about all this and now..now this happens. I knew that something was up. All I had to do now was talk to both of them.

"Err, Mona? You mind if we had a word elsewhere? Say the coffee shop around the corner? I have a feeling we have much more in common then it imposes."

It would seem that fate brought us together. I did keep in the back of my mind however, that all this could have been planned..or that she wasn't who she seemed to be.

The Moltres kept covering her face, as if to hide something. I gently tried to remove her wing and soothe her down. Of course, I didn't want to get in a fight either. I did it as best I could and hoped she would comply.

"Are you kidding?!"

I asked the stranger rather harshly.

"I'm not going anywhere until I do some studying! This Moltres TALKS!"

I got pretty close to the rare Pokemon, taking in it's fiery features. I would've loved to catch it for myself, but a pokemon like this had to be extremely powerful. It was the elemental bird of fire after all. Without realizing it at first, I was gripping a pokeball in my hand. I quickly released my grip and my expression of excitement had turned into a nervous one. I hoped the Moltres had not seen that.

"Um... how can you.. uh... talk, Moltres? You're the first talking Pokemon I've ever met.."

That was somewhat of a lie. My Gothitelle talked to me through telepathy, but was that really "talking"? Or just communicating? I wasn't sure why I was even pondering it.

"Um... how can you.. uh... talk, Moltres? You're the first talking Pokemon I've ever met."

I looked down once again, lowering my wing. She didn't recognize me one bit.

"You know that human that was here a few minutes that dashed into the woods? T-that was m-m-me..." I told her, trying not to sound as scared as I was. Sadly, trying to hide my fear failed completely.

"Are you kidding me?!" is how Mona responded. I couldn't blame her. I practically peed my pants when we saw the Moltres too. Still, I knew that we had to talk and I had to talk. She seemed really ecstatic about Moltres I thought maybe I could use that to my advantage..

"Hey Moltres, I've got a Charizard with me, and maybe you two could interact? We could was to the Ruins where it's secluded. Mona, you're free to come too.

This was all I needed. My one chance to help.

Kirin "the Demon"
Getting the secret out
Violet Town, Johto
Affected RPers: None... yet.

Kirin, or "the Demon" he was called so often, was tired. His goals of revealing the 'Unknown Pokemon' and the mystery shrouding them made him come to this town where there should be some leads, and he was tired from his long journey. He was trying to not attract attention to himself; a Bisharp like him isn't native to this region, and would cause a commotion, not to mention he didn't like people in the first place. So far, it was working. He mainly stayed in the shadows of the buildings and the outskirts of the town, where there were no people.

Aside from trying to find leads on the Unknown Pokemon, he was also looking for something, or more precisely, someone else. From what he had gathered by 'talking' to the wild Pokemon ('talking' meaning holding his armblades on their necks until they tell him everything they know), there was a girl with flames sprouting out of her shoulders. When he heard it, he felt thrilled with anticipation of the foe. How powerful could one be if one had flames so powerful that they couldn't be controlled? The mysterious foe gave him some much-needed energy to go on further. He just hoped the girl was in the general area.

His hope was probably heard by Arceus, since at the exact moment he thought about her he heard a loud conversation nearby.

"You know that human that was here a few minutes that dashed into the woods? T-that was m-m-me..." A fearful voice said, about 50 metres south. A male voice spoke after her.


"Hey Moltres, I've got a Charizard with me, and maybe you two could interact? We could was to the Ruins where it's secluded. Mona, you're free to come too." Gotcha. He put the pieces together to A feral, demonic grin came over his face, explaning just why he was called "the Demon". A Moltres disguised as a human girl... I can't miss up a fight with a legendary, can I? Still with the sadistic grin on his face, he walked toward the three, unnoticed.


OOC: Long post, since I'm not on the same timezone as you guys, I should try to catch up.

"Hmph! ...Like I need your permission anyway..."

That's what I said to the man in an annoyed tone. I sighed as I looked up at the fire bird.

"So you're that girl, huh? It probably would be best for us to go somewhere more secluded before somebody else tries to catch you..... besides, I have plenty of questions for you anyway, so I suggest we get going now"

I adjusted the messenger bag I carried with me. It was full of books as well as some pokemon supply and other things. I was surprised I had not gotten any back problems by carrying it around everywhere. It obviously was heavy, but I managed anyway. I wouldn't let books slow me down in my quest for knowledge.

"Hey Moltres, I've got a Charizard with me, and maybe you two could interact? We could was to the Ruins where it's secluded. Mona, you're free to come too,” The man said, really trying to get us to go to the ruins. I guess we should; I didn’t want anyone to try and catch me, and the ruins were abandoned at this time. Not even security guards were there yet, so no one would know a Moltres and two humans would be wandering in there.

“We probably should,” I murmured, getting up on my short, stubby feet. The feet of Articuno and Zapdos were much longer, but my wings? They had a longer wingspan than an Eagle.

"So you're that girl, huh? It probably would be best for us to go somewhere more secluded before somebody else tries to catch you..... Besides, I have plenty of questions for you anyway, so I suggest we get going now,” the girl said. She sure was right.

I looked around, seeing nothing. I thought I had seen something, a Pokémon or something that wasn’t normally found here. Sure, I could find Chimchar and Piplup around commonly, but Unova Pokémon? Those were really far away from the four regions. It may have been my imagination, or was it?

“B-but first I should probably change back, I don’t trust people in this city as much as I have...either that or turn invisible or something...” I said. I flew into the nearby woods once again, trying to hide behind a tree, and turned into a human. I tried to stop the flames on my shoulders, thank Arceus it worked. Now my shirt was a red orange colored kimono, yet with shorter sleeves. My hair, as usual, was jet black. I smiled and ran out of the woods. I had forgotten one thing; I had taken the path that went over the water.

What I did next gave out my secret...kind of.

I jumped up once and leaped over the water. I seemed to fly a bit to help me over, but who cares?

I landed as if I had jumped, on both feet. I walked towards the two humans and smiled. “Ready,” I said.

Stella walked almost silently to the water, where two girls and a young man stood. She shyly approached the three, interlocking her fingers in front of her. She smiled sweetly, but it showed that she was nervous. Stella had never before interacted with humans, or other Pokemon, really, so she was worried that she would see straight through her human disguise.

As she was about to speak, something about the black haired girl made her think. There was a strange feeling about her that reminded Stella of something, but she couldn't think what it was. "Excuse me," she said, smiling again, "I was wondering, do any of you know where I could find some berries?" she asked.

The girl agreed to come along with me and Moltres. People were starting to look now, it was the best idea that I had in the longest time. I knew Moltres was part of the legs datura keeping the secret of even neutral for that matter. I knew I could trust her. As for Mona, I had a feeling that I could trust her, but I couldn't be sure. We had to find out at the Ruins.

Then the girl did something incredible. She flew over the river as a human. Things lately were just mind-blowing. First I see a talking Moltres, then a flying girl. All of a sudden, another young girl appeared and asked.

"Excuse me, do any of you know were I could find some berries?"

I didn't know what to say, because the girl bared a small resemblance to something, I just couldn't remember what.

"We're actually on our way to the Ruins" I said. "I'm sure there's berries nearby, you're welcome to come."

It seemed that almost right after I had ‘flown’ over the water in this form, another human came. Was there a party here or what? I then noticed a slight, yet not so apparent, resemblance to Jirachi. It was probably more apparent to me, being one of the Legendary Pokémon myself. I just didn’t know if Mona or Harry would know that she was one of the Legends. I decided to stop thinking about it.

"Excuse me, I was wondering, do any of you know where I could find some berries?" the girl asked. It was Harry who replied.

"We're actually on our way to the Ruins. I'm sure there are berries nearby, you're welcome to come."

I groaned when another girl suddenly seemed to appear. I had my back to them, so I didn't see her approach anyway. Turning to finally face them, I crossed my arms. I was getting impatient and a little worried. This little party of ours was getting slowly bigger and I was getting worried that we'd attract attention somehow. Call me paranoid, but I can't help it. Adjusting my glasses again, something I seem to do a lot, I spoke up...

"Can we please just get going? Before somebody else decides to tag along..."

The last thing I needed was some other person finding out that that girl was a Moltres in disguise. I was feeling selfish since I wanted that girl all to myself for awhile to ask her all sorts of questions. I also felt like the biggest nerd in the world then, but I was happy with being... me.

Without waiting for a response from anybody, I turned towards the exit of the city and began to walk in that direction. I wanted to get to the ruins as soon as possible.

Just then, one of the girls said, "Can we please just get going? Before somebody else decides to tag along..." I shot her an annoyed glance just before she walked off.

"I'm not trying to be rude, but has she got something against legenda- I mean, people?" I smiled, hoping no one would pick up on my mistake. I looked at the black haired girl again, suddenly remembering what she reminded me of. I wasn't sure why, but she definitley reminded me of a Moltres. I thought about asking her, but decided against it, as she might think I was a freak.

"No, I think its because she's getting a bit...impatient," I told her. She surely did remind me of a Jirachi. "But really, we should probably go now, I'm not good with wa- err...I can't wait to see the ruins." I hopped no one knew what I was going to say, not anyone else, at least.

I started to walk off to the ruins when...

I ran up beside her, hearing the girl with the Espeon say, "Where the hell do you think you're going?"

"Excuse me, but I don't think you have any right to stop us doing anything we wish to," I said to the girl calmly.

Great... now another girl was preventing us from passing... and it seems that she had overheard that the girl I was so interested in was a Moltres in disguise. Now I was really getting impatient. Looking the new girl up and down, I saw her finely groomed Espeon and I smirked.

"Let me handle this..."

I glared at the girl with the Espeon as I drew out a Pokeball. Clicking the button on the front, it popped open and out came my dark pokemon, Umbreon.

"Look, girl... we don't have to prove anything to you. So unless you want my me and my Umbreon to teach you and your Espeon a lesson in manners, I suggest you move... Now."

After the girl came to us asking for berries, I decided to keep it cool. All these people here were here for a reason. I would try not to talk as much or even do anything to bring attention to myself.

Then all of a sudden, another girl came. But she didn't seem interested in anything but the Moltres chick. I had a slight feeling that she might be trouble. Mona seemed most eager to battle her though, so I didn't do anything but watch. I wanted to go talk to that new girl, Stella I believe her name was.

I walked up to Moltres and Stella.

"Hey, Amber, I was wondering," I started, "do you by any chance happen to be Moltres? It's like I can tell who other legendaries are." I smiled, not realising I had given away my identity. "Oh," I said, realising what I had done, "I mean... Oh forget it, I don't want to make up anything anymore," I said, scratching the back of my head.

I quickly turned around and shoved Harry aside, now standing face to face with Stella. I admit that was rather rude of me, but all I wanted to do was learn about those Pokemon.

"What do YOU know about those unknown Pokemon??"

If I were cruel hearted, I'd force those answers out of her through violence, but, despite my love for learning new things, I wouldn't do such a thing to an innocent... human being?

"What do YOU know about those unknown Pokemon?" the girl who was rude before asked.

"Alright, I told you, I don't know anything about them, ok?" I sighed. "Do you have something against me, just because I'm not a human or am I just being stupid? Tell me that, why don't you?" I said, fairly angrily. I had a short temper, and this girl had really got on my nerves. I calmed down a bit. "Sorry, I wasn't trying to be rude, but I don't under stand what I've done?"

"Whoa whoa whoa. You're a legendary too?" I said to Stella. I couldn't believe it, two legendaries here together. I wouldn't be surprised if Mona was a legendary. The way things were going, it was only a matter of time when someone like Mia Dreams came back. Speaking of her.. I wondered why she even started that spat. I figured we'd be seeing her soon.

"So yeah, these Unknown things. OW!"

Mona had abrasively pushed and began asking the same thing.

"Yeesh, hold your horses." I told her. "Stella, why don't you guys know anything?"

"Whoa whoa whoa. You're a legendary too?" the young man asked. I laughed nervously.

"Umhh... Yeah," I said, smiling. "I'm Jirachi..." I said nervously. To answer the man's question I said, "Well, I've been in a cave my whole life, so I wouldn't know anything anyway..." I said. I smiled at him, then asked, "Oh, what's your name, by the way?"

I started thinking about the Mia Dreams girl, and wy she was so interested in Amber. I knew Amber was a Moltres, but I didn't understand why that Mia girl was so pushy towards her. 'Doesn't she show any respect?' I wondered.

I couldn't believe what was going on. Jirachi's supposed to be super powerful. This girl definitely looked like she'd be Jirachi too. I kinda felt for these girls. There was something going on that could drastically change their lives and they couldn't do anything about it. This was why I had to help somehow.

"Unkown Pokemon, how do you know about the Unknown Pokemon?" Amber asked.

"Well, I want to help stop the humans from uncovering them. I'm on the Pokemon's side."

"Well, I want to help stop the humans from uncovering them. I'm on the Pokemon's side," Harry said to answer Amber's question. I was neutral to the situation, I believed that both sides were right in different ways, but I decided against saying anything, just incase anyone got annoyed with me.

These two legendary pokemon knew nothing about the unknown ones? That pretty much disappointed me, but I had a feeling Amber may have been keeping something from us. I also heard Harry wanting to preserve the secret of the unknown pokemon which baffled me as to why. It would be such a huge and amazing discovery if one were to actually find them.

"Hmph... none of you have any useful information for me. I for one would like to find these unknown pokemon and study them. Why let such an amazing thing go undiscovered? There's no point in doing so!"

My Umbreon seemed to grunt in agreement as she stood beside me. She never disobeyed me and I was surprised when I first found out that she had no problem unearthing such a big secret about Pokemon.

WHat Mona said was terrifying to me. She was trying to find the Unknown POkemon just to study them? Humans almost killed them, and now she was trying to do science on them, possibly killing them in the meantime? WHO THE HELL WOULD DO SUCH A THING EXCEPT FOR TEAM DAMN ROCKET AND THE OTHERS!?

"You know what? That is it. You want the Unknown Pokemon for studies? I'm not letting a single human even try to come near the Unknown Pokemon. They were hidden for a reason, because humans mistreated them more than others. The humans killed off most of them! Sure, I was a human before, but I never knew what Pokemon were until I practically died in the...wings...arms..whatever, of another Moltres! He had given up his freaking life for me, I have no idea why he would do such a thing. Now that I think of it, humans are evil! All they do is make Pokemon battle one another and dress them up in freaking dresses all the time...its humiliating and stupid! As long as I live, I swear you humans will never know where the Pokemon lie!" I growled, my hair erupting into flames. My Moltres wings popped out and my mouth and nose transformed into a beak. My feet turned into small bird feet and my arms dissapeared.

Once I had transformed, I flew up and towards the Ruins of Alph. I wasn't going to wait any longer, people would be there soon and I knew it.

I couldn't believe how Mona reacted. She actually had the audacity to say that she wanted to release the Unkown Pokemon, in front of two powerful legendaries! She looked disgusted and I couldn't take it anymore. I was about to battle her when Amber let out a huge rant.

As long as I live, I swear you humans will never know where the Pokemon lie!"

Great, now my chances of helping her were lost. All because of Mona. I had tried to calm Amber down or even reason with her. She just took off flying to what seemed like Ruins of Alph. I had to get to her, but first, I needed to settle things with Mona.

"Hey Mona! You've caused this, you're on the bad guys' side! And for that, I'm afraid you're gonna have to get through me if you want to release the Unkown Pokemon.."

I wasn't gonna let her just do this. I wasn't going down without a fight..

"...As long as I live, I swear you humans will never know where the Pokemon lie!" Amber finished, before transforming into Moltres. I watched her fly away, before transforming back into my real form. It took no time for me to transform, and then I was off after the other legendary. I hovered up beside her, trying to keep up.

"Tell me what you know, Amber, we're on the same side. I know that I should know myself, but I couldn't have ever learnt, I've been in a cave my whole life. You don't need to tell me, but please, I want to know, we are both legendaries," I said, hoping to persuade her to tell me.

Kirin "the Demon"

Affected RPers:

Well, he was going to attack the trio, but then he heard about their plan to go to the Ruin of Alph and stopped there. If he let them continue with the talking, he may even be able to get some information about the Unknown Pokemon! This time, his logic suppressed his feral instincts. He tailed them on, listening in, unnoticed, on the conversation with a new girl.

Then the new girl almost let it slip that she was Jirachi, and he almost exploded from joy. Two legendaries up for fighting? This would've been the greatest opportunity to reveal himself and start fighting, but once again he kept his place within the shadows. Jirachi should know about the Unknown, since it was a legendary after all. He gritted his teeth, the patience needed for restraning himself almost unbearable. Soon, he promised himself...

They started talking about the Unknown Pokemon, finally deciding to not beat around the bush. A quick check on the conversation made him sure of who was exactly wanting to do what. The woman wanted to release them so she could study them, the man wanted to keep it a secret, and the legendaries, well, they looked almost afraid of the question. It was obvious they preferred the humans to stay in the dark about the Unknown.

The Moltres looked like she was pissed the next moment, as she took off in a rage and flew over, probably to the Ruin of Alph. He would've went out and followed her down there (he was pretty fast- an understatement- after all), but if he stepped out of his concealment they would've spotted him follow her and that probably wasn't too good for getting information. The Jirachi probably had more information, anyways.


"Hey Mona! You've caused this, you're on the bad guys' side! And for that, I'm afraid you're gonna have to get through me if you want to release the Unknown Pokemon.." The man said, readying for a battle. Idiots. The fragile humans were weak, weaker than the weakest Magikarp (exaggeration perhaps, but the point is made); they only abused the Pokemon they had captured and used them to their will. He never understood how the enslaved ones did not escape or kill their so-called 'trainer'. They were probably too weak to fight against them. Such despicable ones, the humans were... If he was in control, they'd be the ones enslaved instead of the other way around... He was going to teach them a lesson about their place, as well as let out his hunger for battle for once. But then, the Jirachi flew up and started following the Moltres. He was seriously pissed now- he wanted a fight already, screw them for leaving! With them gone, the humans didn't matter, not even if they saw him.

He dashed out of the shadows, rushing forward at a pace to match their flying speed. He headed to the location where they were most likely to go to- the Ruins of Alph.

I hadn’t gotten far when Stella transformed into Jirachi and tried to catch up to me. She floated next to me. She must have known that I was probably taking sides now, but you know? Who really cares?

"Tell me what you know, Amber, we're on the same side. I know that I should know myself, but I couldn't have ever learnt, I've been in a cave my whole life. You don't need to tell me, but please, I want to know, we are both legendries," she said, apparently trying to get me to tell her more.

I looked down to make sure no Pokémon or humans were within hearing distance, and I saw a glimpse of a Pokémon that wasn’t native to the four regions. “I-I can’t tell you, not until that Pokémon goes away, it may be on the other side,” I muttered, pointing towards the Pokémon with my beak. “However, I might be able to tell you later. We should be able to trick him if we do a little detour or something.”

I had a slightly good plan; we would head this way, yet turn around once we were almost there. We could possibly fly back to Violet City, stop above one of the houses, and wait for the Pokémon to catch up. Then, when he catches up to us, we could use Double Team and have a clone fly to the humans, yet we would be invisible and flying towards the Ruins.

Oh, that's just great. Now I have everybody against me. These people... and Pokemon... jumped to conclusions way too quickly. It irritated me quite a bit. I sighed angrily and crossed my arms, looking down at the ground as I began to grind my teeth. I do hate it when people assume things when they can't base their judgement on pure facts.

"You're all idiots..."

I knew Moltres and Jirachi could no longer hear me, but at least Harry would hear me.

"You assume I'm going to hurt those Pokemon... kill them, maybe... but you couldn't be anymore wrong. Like I said... I just want to study them. Yes, up close and personal, but it's not like I'm going to use some torture devices on them just to get information out of them. I've done studies on my own Pokemon and they would tell you that I never harmed them if you asked them"

I shoved past Harry once again. I wasn't in the mood for a battle now anyway. My Umbreon followed closely behind me, growling rather loudly at Harry as she passed him.

"Hello, I'm here for Gem's little spa day." I smiled for once, it was not something I would normally do.

"OK, name please?" The lady at the front desk asked kindly.

"Mia Dreams. My Pokemon is Gem the Embreon," I told her matter-of-factually.

"Right this way, Mia." The lady walked away from the desk, leading me towards a small Pokemon grooming station. "What would you like done?" She asked.

I looked at Gem. She looked perfect until I saw how long her fur had grown. I nodded and said, "A small haircut and a bow by her ear." Yes, I was kind of going to mimic Hello Kitty, but whatever. It was how Gem liked it.

The girl nodded and picked Gem up gently. She bathed her using lavender Pokemon shampoo and dried her lightly with a blow dryer. Afterwords, she did as I had told her, giving her a haircut and putting a cute little red bow by her ear.

"Thank you, Dawn," I said, putting Gem's rhinestone studded collar on. Yes, Sinnoh's contest champion, Dawn, was here in Johto. That didn't matter, as May, Hoenn's contest champion, was in a spa in Kanto.

"No problem, Mia. Come back soon!" She called as I left. With Gem at my side, I walked home. I soon noticed that the Moltres girl had turned into Moltres once again and that there was a Jirachi with her now. Mona was just about to walk off it seemed, and...was that a Pokemon? I had no idea, it looked like one of the Unknown Pokemon to me. I shrugged and walked towards the gang's former 'hiding spot'.

"So look who's still here. No surprise whatsoever." I sneered. Gem growled at Harry and started to yap. I allowed her to do so until it got annoying.

"I-I can’t tell you, not until that Pokémon goes away, it may be on the other side. However, I might be able to tell you later. We should be able to trick him if we do a little detour or something.” I smiled deviously trying to think about a plan.

"What sort of plan do you have in mind?" I asked, looking down at the Pokemon that was following us. I turned round, and spotted the girl, Mia Dreams, back over with Mona and Harry. I spun back round, then said to Amber, "Mia Dreams is back, look behind you."

"You're all idiots.." Mona had said to me. She wanted to study the Pokemon, the ones that were hidden for a reason, to stop "studying". They were being killed, and nobody cared. I didn't get the chance to tell her that because she shoved me and left. Just as I was to chase after her that other girl Mia appeared.

""So look who's still here. No surprise whatsoever." she rudely said.

"What's that supposed to mean? Aren't you wanted at a spa somewhere? I don't need this right now." I said back. I got my things, returned my Pokemon and was hoping to find more clues. And now with this girl here, I couldn't go anywhere without her probably tagging along.

"Anywho, we could head this way, towards the ruins yet turn around once we were almost there. We could possibly fly back to Violet City, stop above one of the houses, and wait for the Pokémon to catch up.

I was walking away from Harry until I heard that voice again. The voice of that girl with the Espeon. Turning around, I saw that she had come back and was confronting Harry. Her Espeon caught my attention this time. It had been recently groomed. On instinct, I quickly walked back to them and knelt down, taking out a magnifying glass from my bag as I began to study Espeon's finely groomed fur. My Umbreon didn't seem to like to Espeon very much since it growled at it after giving it a sniff. I couldn't blame her. Umbreon and Espeon were almost complete opposites. Ying and Yang, Day and Night, stuff like that. Of course, I wasn't saying Espeons and Umbreons couldn't get along. Why was I even thinking about this? I was studying Espeon! I didn't even realize that I had forgot to ask the girl for permission to study her pokemon. Oh well.

"Chill, Umbreon. It's not worth it"

Surprisingly, Umbreon stopped and let out one more low growl before sitting normally. I stood again and glared at Harry as I walked over to him. Without warning, I grabbed his shirt collar and pulled him towards me.

"Keep talking like that and I will NOT hesitate to leave bruises!"

I shoved him back and exhaled irritably. Today was getting more and more frustrating.... all because I just wanted to LEARN. How rude.

After threatening Harry, I returned Umbreon to her pokeball and put it away. I was really itching for a battle now to let off some steam, but I dropped the idea as my Gothitelle released itself from it's pokeball.

"What is it, Gothitelle? I'm a little stressed right now thanks to some people.."

She began communicating with me through telepathy, telling me to relax since anger leads to worse things. I figured she was right and I let my tense shoulders drop and my fists unclench. My Gothitelle gave Mia and Harry an annoyed look, but never threatened them like Umbreon does.

"Hey Mia, are you alright?” Harry asked once that idiot that they call a human, Mona, stopped looking at my Espeon.

“Yeah, I’m alright,” I replied. I looked at Mona, scowled, and rolled my eyes.

Mona’s Gothitelle came out of its Poké ball without being sent out. Apparently someone needed to train their dang Pokémon better. It seemed to talk to her through telepathy, an odd way to speak, even for a Pokémon. Once it was done, it gave Harry and I both annoyed looks. Gem, for one, didn’t like that. She looked up at the Pokémon and charged up a Shadow Ball. I didn’t try to stop her; it would be stupid of a person to do so, because she didn’t like being stopped. It was the one flaw that she had.

He wasn't used to this unfamiliar region yet, so it might have explained him being noticed by the two in air. But he was still angry, no, absolutely livid at himself. He could tell by the way they started to hover higher when they started talking, so they wouldn't be overheard. By their actions of hiding their conversation, it was probably about the Unknown Pokemon or their destination. They were pretty good, the Legendaries... It just made him anticipate their upcoming battle even more.

He had to think, now. They were certainly similar, him and the two, in how they planned. The 'hovering out of the listening range' thing was what he would have done in their situation. So now, if it was him flying in the skies instead, what would he do? I'd go almost all the way there, then double back while letting the stalker follow a clone made by a Double Team, he thought, a calculating grin coming over his face. It was a good plan, just like one he would make- simple and effective. Too bad I saw through it; also, I can see through most illusions made by those lower in level than me. You're like a mouse caught in his own mousehole... You've lost. Checkmate. Now all he had to do was wait until they switched to their clones. He couldn't wait to hear their cries of agony.

I saw the Espeon charging up a shadow ball and gasped. I couldn't react fast enough, but Gothitelle could. Instead of attacking though, she used Protect to stop any harm from coming to us. My Gothitelle never was one to fight pointlessly. She would only fight if she were really provoked to do so. I swallowed nervously as I waited for the Espeon to launch it's attack. Gothitelle kept her cool as she continued to hold up her Protect against the Shadow Ball.

Walking out of the conter, I sighed, hand on the only pokeball I had with me. Grinning, I held it in my hand as I called out the Buizel stored inside.

"Haley, you ready to go?" I asked, receiving an enthusiastic nod in reply. I smirked and started walking towards the first landmark I'd decided to visit: Sprout Tower.

Of course, being a Black City child, born and raised, I was not used to such a quiet place with all the nature around, but I had to say, it was growing on me. But my attention was soon taken away from the serene look of the nature as I could see an Espeon preparing to fight a Gothitelle. While this was normally against my code of morals, I walked over casually and half-waved.

"So, what's going on here?" I asked to nobody in particular, looking up towards the clouds.
