I didn't understand this... at all... could you go into more detail and not make it a big run-on sentence? Like, with using commas and line breaks and full-stops/periods? D:

Titles usually come better after you have finished writing a piece of work. Then, once you have everything set in stone, and you know what happens in the story, you can give it a general name, such as what happens, like, "The Invasion" or something along those lines...

Or you can go a bit deeper and create the title from perhaps something that a character says in the story, the setting, or a certain word that has a big impact on the story. For example, Stephenie Meyer used the titles of all of her Twilight books somewhere in the corresponding story.

So, my advice: Finish the story first. A title usually comes very easily once you are done... And often WHILE you are writing it. ^^;

If you plan on working on more than one fic in your career, maybe try naming around a general theme: for example, I decided recently to name all of my Pofemon fanfiction after items. (They sometimes get pretty twisted, but oddly relevant meanings... Metal Coat, cough cough.)

I'd call it something like "Time Flux" or just "Flux".

This idea... needs a lot more than a title.
Try thinking up an actual story, and then I might be able to help you.
For one thing, WHY does your hero want to save his world? What's so great about it?
Second, why did the future people come to Earth anyways?
Third, why are there Pokemon? Have they always been there?
Answer those questions, and I might be able to help you.
