Once upon a time, there was a Pokémon trainer known as Purple, a boy with a purple and black cap which he wore backwards on his head, and he had medium-length orange hair, dark brown eyes, and wore a purple sleeveless jacket, a white T-shirt, black pants and dark gray sneakers, and carried a white backpack. He was walking along a grassy routes surrounded by many large mountains, with his trusted Pokémon, his Growlithe following him closely from behind, when suddenly...
James and jesse came when he was sleeping and robbed his pokemon
"A Growlithe, huh..." said Jesse, who, along with James and Meowth, was standing on the gondola of a hot air balloon which looked like a huge Meowth head, as a long, mechanical triple claw-shaped arm extended out of a machine on the gondola towards Purple's Pokémon, before grabbing it and dragging it towards the machine!
"Arf! Aarrff!!" Growlithe then barked in fear and surprise as that happened, but before it could bark enough times to wake up its sleeping trainer, a large, open, transparent, soundproof and fireproof hemisphere-shaped lid attached to the machine suddenly closed as the mechanical arm finished dragging Growlithe towards the machine, trapping the Fire-type Pokémon inside the transparent hemisphere-shaped lid on top of the machine!
"Hahahahahaha!" Jesse, James and Meowth then laughed evily with their arms folded as they watched Growlithe barking desperately inside the machine, while at the same time breathing fire out of its mouth and headbutting the edges of its prison in despair, but with absolutely no result though, as the hemisphere imprisoning the Puppy Pokémon was made of an extremely hard material which was both fireproof and soundproof!
"If I know my facts right, Growlithe evolves into Arcanine with a Fire Stone!" Meowth commented in excitement then, smiling sinisterly, showing its sharp teeth and raising its right claw a bit as it looked up at Jesse and James.
"Such a rare, graceful and powerful Pokémon..." said James then.
"Once we evolve this Growlithe, it'll be perfect to give to the boss!" said Meowth with excitement, as the hot air balloon Jesse, James and Meowth were riding started flying away from the place, leaving behind Purple, who was still fast asleep, unaware that his Growlithe had been stolen!
In the morning purple gets up to find his dear arcanine was missing he lodged a complain to officer jenny and after acknowledging the terrible news Prof:Oak immediatly went to ash with a yellow rat known as pikachu but he never went in the pokeball he also acknowledged that team rocket must have taken his Growlithe and he went on searchi for his pokemon with pikachu when he found giving him the fire stone he saw quietly when it evolved and got up they were about to try to catch it when his pikachu gave a Quick attack and the ball flew when they cried together "THAT WAS OUR ONLY BALL" then there was a 2-2 match between them
Pikachi and Arcanine vs Weepinbell and Ekans
"Pika pika!" Pikachu then let out a cry as it stood on all fours, while some sparks of electricity appeared on its cheeks, as it faced the two Poison-type Pokémon with a determined look on its face, looking ready to fight!
Then Purple's Arcanine gave a flamethrower to them which burned not only the pokemon but also burnt Jesse and james then Pikachu gave a volt tackle to Ekans which made it faint and wepinbell aldready fainted they ran away then Purple went to Prof.Oak and told "Sir thanks for the pikachu which knows Volt tackle you can take it back and yes my growlithe Evolved'
Prof.Oak:Oh no purple keep Pikachu with you and then.........
"I can keep it? Really?" said Purple, looking at Professor Oak as a huge smile of excitement gradually appeared on his face!
Prof.oak just told Yes when his grandson named black shouted "GRANDPA THATS MY PIKACHU I TOLD YOU I WANT YOU TO EVOLVE IT I WANNA BEAT THE ELITE FOUR CHAMP LANCE SUDDENLY USING THAT POKEMON I KNOW THE SECRET ROUTE TO HIS ROOM"
Prof.Oak.Cool down this pokemon is destinied to be with purple as u know lance uses dragon pokes take any ice pokemon Black with a grin "ill take a dragon poke do you have Magikarp
After handing over the ball Black thought Magikarp the pre-Evelution of gyrados was good then he told fight me Purple
The fight between Pikachu and Magikarp
Purple:Pikachu Thunder bolt
Before black could command his poke it fainted then see Black cry it evolved while evolving Prof.Oak took the pokemon out as it could damage the building it evolved out and then he still continued
Purple:Pikachu paralise him with Thunder Wave
Gyrados coudnt move because of Paralysis
Some time later told Black and went away then Prof.Oak gave him many thing First of all
6 pokeballs,Some food, and a tent
As he was searchig for pokemon suddenly........
...Mew appeared before Black in the tall grass, floating there and letting out a playful cry, surprising Black, who widened his eyes as he saw the Psychic-type legendary Pokémon! Then he took out a PokéDex, opened it and pointed it at Mew, and then a male voice coming from the PokéDex said "Mew is said to possess the genetic composition of all Pokémon. It is capable of making itself invisible at will, so it entirely avoids notice even if it approaches people." Black then...
Thinking his magickrap was to powerfull shouted ill defeat your mew and then ..
Black took out his Poké Ball containing his Magikarp and threw it in front of Mew. The Poké Ball then opened in a bright flash, revealing the Magikarp, which had evolved into Gyarados previously, and then Gyarados closed its mouth and moved its head around briefly, before suddenly opening its huge mouth and shoving it right in front of Mew while letting out a loud roar, intimidating the Psychic-type Pokémon!
then mew using his brain used a special move metronome which made him use Thunder then
Some dark clouds appeared in the sky, and then several bolts of lightning flashed within the clouds, before a gigantic bolt of lightning suddenly descended from the sky and struck Black's Gyarados with insane power, damaging it incredibly badly as an unbelievably loud thunder also radiated from the lightning bolt, causing Black to cover his ears temporarily! Gyarados's body was then fried extremely badly by the lightning, and the gigantic Water/Flying-type Pokémon pulled its head back with eyes closed in pain as some powerful sparks of electricity ran across its body, shocking, zapping and excruciating the Atrocious Pokémon! "Gyyyaaarrghhh!!!!!!" Gyarados then let out a loud, painful roar as it weakly raised its head to look up at the sky for a second, before falling down on the ground and fainting, while cracking the ground a bit and shaking it on impact with its huge weight!
Appears arceus from rayquaza from nowhere as the cause was the realese of Kyogre when the clouds cleared black started crying and shouted "I am useless gyrados is the whole world is dead raaaaaaa "
Then purple came and told him .........
"Rest at ease. If the world is dead, then what we must do is not to mourn over it, but to revive it. Come with me..." said Purple in a gentle voice as he extended his hand at Black, who...
Thought of killing him but he knew if he would do so his life would worsen he got up quickly and told i am gonna rush to the Pokemon Center to heal gyrados and train and catch more pokemon and then he went healed his pokemon and when he was searching for pokemon he found
He found a tall man with dark brown hair that was almost black, calm and serious brown eyes, and dressed in black shoes, dark gray pants and a light gray T-shirt. The man slowly walked up to Black with his arms folded, and then he said "So you are another Pokémon trainer just like me. How interesting." as he took out a Poké Ball, pushed a button on it and enlarged it, and then he said "Come out, Hypno." as he threw his Poké Ball with a calm movement of his hand, and out came a Hypno! "Why don't we have a Pokémon fight?" the man then said as he looked Black calmly in the eyes.
Black told why not sir and took out gyrados and hypno defeated black and black rushed to the Pkmn center crying and there in the Pkmn Center he saw his grandfather who told him
"Black, my grandson... do you want to know the secret of Pokémon Mastery?".
Black then made a greedy face and told of couse
Then he told you have to develope a bond with pokemon .............. then
"What kind of bond?" Black asked curiously while leaning forward, and then his grandfather turned his back to him, surprising him a bit. "That... you'll need to figure out on your own... in your long journey together with your Pokémon." Black's grandfather then said.
"I understand, grandpa." Black then said to his grandfather with a happy smile on his face. Black's grandfather then smiled back at his grandson and said "I wish you good luck on your adventure." "Thanks!" Black replied, before turning around to face the automatic sliding glass door of the Pokémon Center he was in, ready to head out of the Pokémon Center to embark on an adventure. However, as he turned to face the glass door, he saw a muscular man wearing a blue suit with a silver right shoulder armor, a red face-covering helmet with a black visor and a golden falcon symbol on the forehead, yellow gloves, yellow boots, a yellow scarf and and a brown belt with a black pistol case at the right side of his belt standing right in front of the Pokémon Center's glass door from inside, facing outside the Pokémon Center and with his back turned to Black! As he was standing in that position, the helmeted man suddenly shouted "Falcon..." as he kneeled down on his right knee and pointed his left palm forward while pulling back his right fist and charging much powerful fiery energy in it! Just then, the brown-haired Hypno trainer dressed in gray, who battled Black earlier was Teleported right in front of the door of the Pokémon Center, calmly with his arms folded, his back turned to the Pokémon Center's door and with a Natu on his right shoulder! However, less than a split second after the trainer in gray appeared, the helmeted man who was standing right behind him with much fiery energy gathered in his right fist shouted "PAUNCH!" in a loud voice as he delivered a flaming punch forward with insane power with his right fist, while some huge flames engulfed the helmeted man as he unleashed his punch, and the flames also manifested into the shape of a massive falcon as the attack was unleashed! The helmeted man's fiery punch then instantly shattered the glass door between him and the trainer in gray, before hitting the trainer himself! "UUUGGGHH!!!!" the trainer in gray then screamed with his eyes widened as the destructive fiery punch hit him straight in the back before he could react or even know what hit him, as the attack was launched at him unexpectedly from behind less than a split second after he just came out of his Teleport! The trainer in gray and his Natu were both then instantly incinerated to ashes by the helmeted man's devastating attack, and then the helmeted man said "YESZ!" as he pulled his right fist back after completing his punch. Black then widened his eyes in horror as he witnessed the trainer in gray being killed, and then...
Black was thunderstruck. He couldn't believe what happened right before his eyes; a man, a man with whom he battled just some time ago, was, was KILLED before his own eyes! Also, what could possibly be the dreadful reason behind the helmeted man for killing this trainer? And is it just a coincidence that the gray trainer teleported to the Pokémon Centre just when the helmeted man had begun charging power? He would have thought for some more time when the helmeted man rose and cast an extremely malevolent look on Black, and suddenly disappeared in way that would make one think of Gastly; he just vaporized himself in the air! Black couldn't stand it any more, everything became blurred before his eyes and he fainted! Meanwhile Nurse Joy rushed towards the dead man, to check if he was alive. Although the impact of the attack was deadly, but the man's bewildered Natu returned to its senses and seemed to stare at the place where the helmeted man was standing, with a look filled with hatred. "Oh, good heavens! This man is already dead.", screamed Nurse Joy.
Black left the city with a heavy heart. He was confused about where to go now. He sat down under a tree; he was not feeling well. Suddenly he felt as if the sun had just become brighter; it seemed as if intense ray of golden light was coming from the heavens towards the tree he was sitting under. He stood up and went out of the shade of the tree; the brightness of the light forced him to close his eyes. When he opened them again, he saw the golden outline of a body appear above his head. Several rays of golden light came out from that creature. Was it some kind of Pokémon? Black had heard about Ho-Oh the fiery phoenix. But the creature seemed to resemble the shape of a horse. Suddenly, the unknown creature started in a voice that seemd to shake the whole earth, "You are the chosen one my dear! What you witnessed today was a mere omen of what is going to happen to us, to the whole universe." Black wanted to ask the creature who he was, but the words were stuck in his throat. The golden creature went on: "Something terrible is going to happen, and YOU must prevent it, for you are a chosen human being. Go straight North from here, and you will find an ancient temple. At the heart of that temple, there is an Orb that has the power of time, itself, imbued in it. Collect it! But don't think you are alone in your journey, your Pokémon are always beside you!" Black listened, spell bounded, when the golden creature gradually disappeared, just as he had come!
Black continued looking up at the sky with an extremely surprised look on his face, as it took him time to take in the miraculous event he had just experienced. But after a few seconds, he lowered his head to face forward, towards the North, with a sharp and determined look in his eyes, as well as a confident smile on his face. "Right! I got it! I surely won't fail you or this world, legendary Pokémon!" Black then said with great confidence and enthusiasm, before taking out a Poké Ball with his right hand and enlarging it! "Go, Arcanine!" Black then shouted excitedly as he threw that Poké Ball forward, and then the Poké Ball opened in a bright flash of light, revealing Black's Arcanine, which was facing the North with its back turned to its trainer as it appeared, and it raised its head proudly and let out a graceful cry as it emerged from its Poké Ball! "Let's go, Arcanine!" Black then said as he ran up to his Arcanine and jumped on its back, before preparing to ride his Fire-type Pokémon towards the North! "A long journey awaits both of us... as well as Pikachu and Gyarados too!" said Black, as his Arcanine began dashing towards the North at a very high speed, while carrying its trainer on its back! "And the goal of this journey isn't just Pokémon Mastery either! The fate of this entire universe depends on us!" Black then continued, while feeling the intense wind blowing his hair and clothes, due to the huge speed at which the Pokémon he was riding was currently running!
After tirelessly travelling for three days, Black reached the gate of a beautiful little town, situated in an exquisite valley with all its flowers in full-bloom. "Welcome to the Clifferina Town, young man!", bowed the guard. Black replied, "Thanks. And do you know of any ancient temple here". The guard knit his brows for a while and then said, "Umm...you mean the Temporal Ruins? They are not actually temples, but ruins of an ancient temple built some thousand years ago ." Saying this, the guard pointed towards a nearby mountain. Black could see a shiny white pillar standing there. "There you see, are the ruins." "Thanks a lot.", said Black. Black entered the town, with a very thoughtful face. "Why, I went as far North as I could, and now, I found the RUINS of an ancient temple!", thought Black, and raising his head heavenward, said, "Oh, legendary Pokémon, what do you want me to do?" He bought a tarvel guide of the town from a shop and decided to spend that day at the Pokémon Centre's guest rooms, reading the guide; for the guard might not have know everything of the city.
It was about 10 PM. The little town had become calm and quite, as the nest of an Altaria, where baby Swablu slept in peace. Black lay flat on his bed in one of the Pokémon Centre guest rooms, and kept thinking, "What should I do now? The guide book mentioned nothing about any temple, but only said about the Temporal Ruins! What should I do..." He got up and turned off his room's lights, attempting to grab some hours' sleep. But suddenly, he heard some violent knocks at his room's door. That was something to be surprised at. Black slowly went towards the door, and opened it, thinking "Who could it be?", and then...
He opened the door, but as soon as he did that, he widened his eyes fearfully as he saw the helmeted man who had killed the trainer in gray from before! "Tat!" the helmeted man then screamed his battle cry loudly as he swung his right leg at Black, kicking him straight in the stomach with immense power! "GUUGHH!!" Black then screamed with his eyes wide open in pain as he coughed out some blood, before he was sent flying straight into a wall by the huge force of the helmeted man's kick, crashing into it with such great power that his back smashed a large crater in that wall! Black then fell on his bed in a sitting position, and in much pain, with blood coming out of his mouth, he slowly raised his head to look at the helmeted man, who said "Show me ya moves." as he performed a two-finger salute at Black with his left hand, in an action that was clearly taunting him!
"You..ughh..can't win! *COUGH* *COUGH*...I..I...", stammered Black, and then rising, with his face still ridden with an expression of pain, said in a determined manner, "You know..what stupid mistake you made? You forgot I have..I have my POKéMON with me!" Saying this Black threw a swift punch at the helmeted man's face, knocking him back some steps, for the man was caught off-guard. Then he leapt out of the bed and threw out a Poké Ball, "Go, Gyarados!" With a flash, out came the Atrocious Pokémon. "HYPER BEAAMMM!!!!!!!", screamed Black. These things were done with such a rapidity as the helmeted man couldn't expect from what he thought to be easy prey; and within a moment's gap, Black's Gyarados fired a beam filled with massive amounts of devastating energy at the man, knocking him to the wall of the corridor, which shattered at the sudden impact. The man lost consciousness. Black looked at Gyarados and threw a victorious smile at him, which the Pokémon recognised and roared out loudly in exchange
Black slowly approached the apparently unconscious helmeted man, in an attempt to learn about his identity. But as soon as Black reached the helmeted man on the ground, that man suddenly did a handstand while performing two horizontal spin kicks at Black's face, once with each leg! Grargh!" Black then screamed as he was kicked in the face twice, and was knocked down. Then, after completing his two horizontal kicks, the helmeted man athletically did a front flip and landed back on his feet, before immediately dashing towards Black's Gyarados! Shortly after he began his dash, the helmeted man then leaped off the ground and flew towards the Water/Flying-type Pokémon at a high speed, and as he came close to that Pokémon, he bent his elbows and pulled both of his fists back until they were touching his waists, while delivering a quick but insanely powerful knee smash straight at the Atrocious Pokémon's throat! As the helmeted man struck the Gyarados with his flying knee attack, some electricity also came out of his knee, shocking the huge serpent upon impact! "Gyaaaaarrghh!!!" Black's Gyarados then roared loudly in excruciating pain as it was electrified by the helmeted man's devastating knee smash, before falling back and collapsing to the ground fainted, while also shaking the ground and the entire Pokémon Center as it crashed down with its huge weight! The helmeted man then landed back on the ground in a pose with his right knee bent and his fists still touching his waist at the sides, and then...
The man approached Black, about finish him, when a noise was heard from he Pokémon Center's basement. That noise was followed by some footsteps climbing the stairs and coming towards that very floor. At this, the helmeted man gnashed his teeth, and said, "Tut! So you are saved, kid! But hey, listen to a good advice of this old man, get out of this town before the sun rises tomorrow. I care about you, you see! And hey, don't even think of going to the ruins, or, or...well, you won't want to poke your nose at the matters of Les Falcons Satanique!". Saying this he disappeared in the same manner as he had before, but this time Black noticed something, which couldn't have been noticed in the daylight; he saw that the golden falcon symbol at the man's forehead glowing brightly just before he vanished into the air. He now forgot his pain. He was burning with a terrible desire of vengeance. He loudly yelled at the dark corridor, "Run away, you coward! And see, you'll one day regret what you did to me today! I'll take my revenge against you, I'll SURELY AVENGE THIS!!!!"
Most boarders left the Pokémon Center guest rooms the next morning, as they were aware of the incident that had occurred with that Xatu trainer, and the very thought of that mysterious man reappearing, frightened them; some of them even left that town. But Black was desperate about not leaving the place. After a primary check-up of his injuries, he left Gyarados, who, Nurse Joy said, was in a critical condition. He walked out of the Center and stared at the shiny pillars of the ruins at the nearby hill. Suddenly a thought ran through his mind; when does an evil person forbid someone to do something? When he desperately needs to stop that person from doing that. "Then,then..", Black murmured for a while, and then screamed out loudly, "The ruins, that's it! They don't want me to go there because that place is really important for them! Surely, the ancient relics have some grave secret hidden deep inside. Well, then listen Les Falcons Satanique, I'm going there, I'M DESPERATELY GOING THERE RIGHT NOW!!". Saying this, he flung out Arcanine's Poké Ball, rode on the fiery tiger and advanced towards the ruins.
Carrying its trainer on its back, Arcanine dashed at a very high speed along a dirt path, but slowed down to walking pace as it came close to the ruins, which from the exterior, seemed to consist of nothing but five two-storey high white pillars, encircling one massive white pillar which was as high as a ten-storey building, and had a diameter of about twenty meters. The huge pillar surrounded by the other five was also the very same pillar which Black saw from the distance when he first arrived at Clifferina Town the previous day, and all six of these pillars were located amidst a grassy area. Some Pidgey and Pidove were also standing around the grass, and some were even on top of the numerous pillars, chirping peacefully under the clear-blue sky.
"Amazing... so these are the Temporal Ruins..." Black then said, looking awe-inspired and with fascination clear in his eyes, as he gazed up at the top of the gigantic white pillar that stood before him, before steadily lowering his head as his eyes slowly moved down the pillar to behold all of its elegant wonders. He first saw a large carving of a Dialga high up on the pillar's surface, followed by a smaller carving of a Celebi lower down on the pillar, until he eventually noticed a large, open entrance that stood before him at ground level, which allowed one to enter the pillar itself! The entire surface of the white pillar that Black was currently looking at was also covered with a large amount of text carved on it, which were written in a strange language that Black could not understand.
"Alright, let's go in, Arcanine!" Black then said, smiling excitedly as he looked down at his Arcanine, which looked back at its trainer with the corner of its right eye and nodded, before slowly approaching the entrance of the Temporal Ruins. Black and the Arcanine on which he was riding then soon disappeared out of sight as they entered the darkness within the Temporal Ruins' entrance, but little did they realize that they were being followed... as shortly after they entered the ruins, the foot of a person wearing silver boots could be seen stepping on the grass outside, approaching the ruins themselves...
Meanwhile, at a completely different location, the helmeted man from before was currently kneeling in a dark throne room with his head lowered, before a mysterious figure sitting on a throne, which also had a gigantic statue of a winged dragon behind it. Since the room was shrouded in darkness, the face of the person sitting on the throne could not be seen clearly, but it was evident that this figure was male, and he currently had his left elbow on the left armrest of his throne, his left forearm pointing upward, his left hand gently clenched in a fist, and the left side of his face leaning on his left fist, and he also had his left leg folded over his right knee. The left and right sides of this throne room also each stood a row of extremely tall and thick pillars, which supported the extremely high ceiling of the throne room.
"So... you managed to dispose of Antony, the Prince of Evil's last remaining emissary on this Earth." the mysterious figure then said in a male voice, confirming his gender.
"YESZ!" the helmeted man then answered with great enthusiasm.
"That is splendid. Now, it is only a matter of time before that machine himself descends upon this planet... or rather, to his very own destruction. Until that happens though, we ought to focus our attention on Arceus's current Chosen Hero. His name is Black Bobbyborn, if I'm not mistaken..." said the mysterious figure then.
"YESZ!" the helmeted man said enthusiastically once again.
"I see. Well, it's a shame that you weren't able to kill him last night, but I don't blame you, as it would hinder our plans even more if you had to face that person... And besides, I already know where Black's next destination will be anyway, and as such I've already sent two of our grunts to eliminate him. In the meantime though, there is something else we need to do, Captain Douglas Jay Falcon." the mysterious figure then said, confirming the helmeted man's identity as Captain Douglas Jay Falcon, who then raised his head slightly as he heard that.
At the same time, Black and his Arcanine were now inside the huge white pillar. As Arcanine was slowly walking deeper into the ruins, it and its trainer both had their heads raised up high while looking around, and beholding the amazing designs and and architecture within the ruins' interior. Black and his Fire-type Pokémon were now in a large, circular chamber with a ceiling as high as the pillar they were in. The walls surrounding them were completely decorated with paintings that seemed to tell a story of some ancient people, who were apparently in some state of war, and the story shown in the walls' paintings seemed to suggest that this war was eventually stopped by the efforts of Dialga, which, along with Celebi, were depicted in the paintings numerous times. There were also many lit candles attached to the walls of this place, enlightening the otherwise completely dark place with some dim light. On the ground inside the ruins, there was a circular white platform completely surrounded by water but still took up most of the room's width, with a short stone bridge that led from the entrance into the ruins to the circular platform itself. On that circular platform, there were four pillars which were each only a bit taller than Black himself, and they each had a statue of a Celebi on top of them, though the four Celebi statues were each in different poses. And finally, at the very center of the circular platform, and surrounded by the four aforementioned pillars, was a stairway that led underground. Black and his Arcanine then approached that stairway...
In a dark room, possibly a prison, the outline of two men could be seen. One of them was nearly unnoticeable, for he was sitting in the darkest corner of the room. The other man was in a comparatively less dark part, where we could have distinguished him as Captain Douglas Jay Falcon. "Alors, que font-ils à planifier dès maintenant?", said the other man in pure French. Captain Falcon seemed to understand what the man said, and replied in English, "My lord, they are headed for the Adamant Orb." Although the other man spoke the previous words in French, he understood what Captain Falcon had said, and replied, "Hmm ... Eh bien, il ne sait toujours pas autant que je le fais. Pour autant que je peux voir, il n'ira pas beaucoup plus loin avec son plan actuel ... mais il ne faut pas le laisser faire aucun mal à Arceus héros choisi de. C'est petit enfant pourrait être d'une grande utilité pour moi." "Do you really think so, my lord?", asked the Captain. "Oui. Et je veux que vous pensiez de cette façon aussi." The Captain, after thinking for a while, then said, "OK then, I'd rush to Clifferina right now, as Krotenius has already sent two grunts after him." The other man replied, "Bon, je vous licencier. Et maudirai ceux qui Krotenius. Comment pourrait-il même penser qu'il avait remporter la victoire sur moi, sur le fondateur de cette organisation même, sur le prince du mal?" "YESZ, Sire!", with a little salute, the Captain left the room. If we could have seen through the dark, we would have noticed a grim smile pass through the Prince of Evil's face.
Meanwhile, after coming down the staircase descending from the four Celebi pillars, Black arrived at a long passage. Lamps were lit on both walls of the path, but surprisingly enough, these walls didn't have any carvings on them. While walking, they suddenly stopped, as Arcanine had sensed some little footsteps. Turning back, Black saw a little Bagon! The Bagon came closer and started rubbing its head on Black's legs. "Aww, he likes me! I think he followed us her; maybe I should take him with me." But suddenly Black, as also the newly met Bagon, and Black's Arcanine heard heavy footsteps descending the stair they had previously come across. The sound kept increasing, and then...
Black, his Arcanine and the Bagon saw two figures walking down the stairs they had descended before. At first, the figures were shrouded in darkness, but as they came closer, the dim light coming from the walls' lamps revealed them to be a man and a woman respectively from left to right, who were both in their late teens or early twenties. The man was wearing a helmet that heavily resembled that of Captain Falcon's, except it did not have a golden falcon symbol on the forehead, and it was predominately black instead of red, although it did have a thick, red outline. The man also had some golden shoulder armor on both of his shoulders, wore skin-tight black clothes with the white letters "LFS" on his shirt above where his left pectoral muscle was, a silver belt with a golden falcon-shaped belt buckle as well as a black pistol case attached to the right side of his belt, black gloves, golden kneepads and elbow pads, and knee-high silver boots. As for the woman, she had long blond hair and blue eyes, and was hearing a white military cap with a black peak and the black letters "LFS" emblazed on its front, a white thigh-length trenchcoat, a black belt with a golden falcon-shaped belt buckle, a black pistol case attached to the right side of her belt as well as a small pink bag at the left side of her belt, knee-high silver boots, and black stockings. Black then narrowed his eyes as he looked at the two approaching people, while the Bagon hugged Black's left leg, looking frightened, and Black's Arcanine stood in a defensive pose and hissed hostily at the two people walking towards its direction, as a small amount of embers leaked out of its mouth. The helmeted man and the woman with the white cap then stopped walking as they stood about ten meters in front of Black and the two Pokémon that were with him.
"So you are Black Bobbyborn, the Chosen Hero of the Alpha Pokémon." the man then said.
"Chosen Hero of the Alpha Pokémon?" Black then asked, looking confused at first, a second before he widened his eyes upon coming to some kind of realization, as he thought back to the golden Pokémon he saw high up in the heavens four days ago. Then Black narrowed his eyes again as he looked at the two people standing before him, and said "How do you know my name? Who are you people anyway?"
"Oh... well... so it's really him." the woman then said as she looked at the man to her right.
"Black..." the man then said to Black, as the woman also turned to face to Black. "...prepare to die." the man then continued as he and the woman both simultaneously pulled out their pistols with their right hands and pointed them at Black, who widened his eyes as he saw that!
At that moment, Black's Arcanine, which had been continuously hissing aggressively at the man and the woman so far, then roared loudly as it quickly jumped in front of Black with its head lowered briefly, before raising its head up high and letting out a loud howl, which echoed throughout the entirety of the Temporal Ruins, and could be heard even from outside! The two pistol-carrying people then each fired their pistols at the Legendary Pokémon, but as they did that, a rectangular-shaped barrier made of blue psychic energy, with its shorter sides parallel to the ground, appeared in front of Arcanine, and then the bullets fired by the man and the woman hit that barrier, only to spark harmlessly off it!
"Arcanine!" Black then shouted in surprised as he looked at his Arcanine, although at that moment, a part of him also felt happy and proud to see his own Pokémon instinctively protecting him, without having to be told to do so! The man and the woman who had fired their pistols then both raised their heads in surprise as they saw the Fire-type Pokémon protecting its trainer with its Reflect technique, while the woman, whose eyes were not covered by a black visor like those of man, could also be seen widening her eyes a bit at that sight! "Alright! I don't know who you guys are... but judging by your outfit..." Black then said as he looked at the man. "...I guess you're connected to the guy who attacked me last night, and killed that Natu trainer back in Blot City's Pokémon Center... am I right?!" he then continued as he looked at both of his enemies in front of him. The woman then looked surprised as she heard that, while the man, whose mouth was not covered by his helmet like most of his face, smiled, seemingly looking impressed by Black's ability to deduce the identity of him and the woman who was with him! "If that's the case, then let's get rid of them, Arcanine! There is something of great importance that we must do... and we can't afford to die here!" Black then said to his Arcanine, encouraging it to battle! "Now, show 'em your Fire Blast!" Black continued excitedly as he swung his right arm back!
As it heard that, Black's Arcanine raised its head up high while taking in a deep breath, before some powerful flames started shining from within its slightly open mouth! A second after that, the Legendary Pokémon lowered its head, opened its mouth wide and pointed it at the man and the woman with the pistols, as it unleashed a massive shot of unbelievably hot flames in the shape of the Kanji character "大" out of its mouth straight at them! The burning "大" then travelled straight through the barrier made of blue psychic energy which Arcanine had summoned before, and it lit up the otherwise relatively dim passage in a bright, orange color as it travelled along the passage at a high speed towards the man and the woman, who had much orange light shining on their faces and front bodies, and the woman's hair and clothes were also blowing in a powerful, blazing hot wind radiating from the fiery "大" that was flying straight at them! The two of them then both simultaneously spun their pistols around vertically in their right hands a few times before placing them back in their pistol cases, and then the man pulled out a Poké Ball from his right pocket with his right hand, while the woman used her left hand to unzip the pink bag at the left side of her belt, before pulling out a Poké Ball from that bag! The two people then both pressed the buttons on their Poké Balls, enlarging them, and then the man shouted "Braviary..." as he pulled back his right hand, getting ready to throw his Poké Ball forward, while the woman simultaneously shouted "Mandibuzz..." as she also did the same! "...Whirlwind!" the man and the woman then both shouted together in sync, as they threw their Poké Balls forward, towards the fiery "大" that was coming straight at them!
The two Poké Balls then landed on the ground and each opened in a bright flash of light just as Arcanine's Fire Blast was about to reach them! But as the two flashes of light happened, before the Pokémon that appeared from those Poké Balls could even be seen clearly, a very powerful spiralling wind suddenly radiated out of each of the two flashes of light! Arcanine's Fire Blast then collided with the two spiralling winds, and as that happened, the flames of Arcanine's attack was instantly put out by the wind, while the two spiralling winds were also instantly dispersed by the heat and force of the Fire-type Pokémon's attack, creating a huge explosion of pitch-black smoke-carrying wind which quickly filled not only the entire passage in which the current battle was taking place, but the smoke also shot out of the entrance of the Temporal Ruins from outside, causing many Pidgey and Pidove that were hanging out in that area to fly away, and the entire Temporal Ruins were also shaken by the explosion!
Inside the Temporal Ruins, Black was currently covering his mouth with the back of his right arm and coughing loudly amidst the pitch-black smoke-covered atmosphere, while the Bagon was still hugging his left leg in fear, and currently had its eyes closed due to the smoke that shrouded the place. For a few seconds, Black could see absolutely nothing, but as the smoke started to clear out, he heard the woman's voice coming from in front of him!
""Back in Blot City's Pokémon Center"? Hahahaha! How amusing! So you were actually in Blot City at the time of Antony's assassination? If only the Captain knew of that, the two of us wouldn't have even needed to come down here right now!" said the woman, and then Black widened his eyes as he raised his head to look at his front! Initially, he still could not see anything clearly, but as the smoke faded a bit more, Black saw the sihloutte of the man and the woman standing in front of him with their arms folded, while floating in the air in front of them both were also the sihlouttes of two large bird-like Pokémon, which were both flapping their wings rapidly to remain airborne!
"I honestly have no idea that the Captain attacked you last night... or how a brat like you could have possibly survived an assault from him... but one thing remains unchanged..." the man then said, as the smoke that shrouded the passage faded away completely, enabling Black to clearly see through the barrier of blue psychic energy Arcanine had previously created, in order to look at the man and the woman, as well as the Pokémon they had sent out, which were now revealed to be a Braviary and a Mandibuzz, and they were both floating in the air and facing Black, his Arcanine and the Bagon, with a very aggressive look in their eyes!
"Grrr..." Black's Arcanine then hissed in an extremely intimidating manner while standing in an aggressive pose that looked like it was about to pounce forward, as it was facing the two people in front of it as well as the Braviary and the Mandibuzz they had just sent out, with a furious look in its eyes!
"Black Bobbyborn..." the man then said, before pointing his left index finger straight at Black's face! "...your Journey of World Freedom ends right here!" the man continued in an extremely sinister and murderous voice! Upon hearing that, Black slightly lowered his head and narrowed his eyes in determination, and then...
"Dark Pulse!!", ordered the woman to her Mandibuzz. The Dark Vulture opened her mouth and gathered in a lot of destructive Dark energy. And after charging for a while, fired that energy in multiple black rings towards Arcanine. "Roar, Arcanine", commanded Black. The fiery tiger opened its mouth and roared vigorously, launching a big sound wave towards the incoming Dark Pulse. The two clashed; causing the dark rings of energy to explode in mid-air, and therefore not being able to hit Arcanine. The woman bit her lips and said, "Darn it!". "Well, don't worry", said the man, and commanded its Braviary, "SKY ATTACK!!". Braviary glowed in a bluish aura and kept charging power. Just at this moment, to the surprise of everyone present, the Bagon came at the front, and roared out. After this, it opened its mouth and began gathering hydraulic power inside. "Ah, poor thing! He is trying so hard to save his traine..HAHAHA", the man laughed out loudly. "Hey! How dare you!", Black took some steps forward. But, beofre he could do anything, the Bagon targeted at the charging Braviary, and shot a massive blast of water towards it, which it had been charging until now. "Hydro Pump, WOW! You are a great Pokémon, Bagon!", Black uttered a joyful scream. The blast of water hit Braviary real hard, and the impact knocked it to a nearby wall, producing cracks on that wall. "What!?!", the man opened his mouth in astonishment. The Bagon now looked towards the Mandibuzz, and directly fired a strong blue beam of draconic energy towards it. The Mandibuzz was badly hit, and fell straight to the ground. "But...how ..?!?!", both the grunts said loudly, and went towards their respective Pokémon. "Well, how about we end this now?”, saying this, Black looked towards his two Pokémon, and said, "Arcanine, use Fire Blast; and Bagon fire your best Dragon Pulse!". Arcanine gathered some fiery energy and launched a devastating "大" of flames; Bagon fired another strong blue beam of draconic energy. The two attacks came together, and created a catastrophic single blue beam, swirling around which glowed scarlet flames of immense energy. The attack went directly towards the two grunts and their Pokémon, and they cried out, "Uh-Oh...”. A massive explosion occurred and the two grunts and their Pokémon were knocked to a wall, shattering it to pieces. "AAARGH! YOU BRAT", saying this they hardly stood up, and calling their fainted Pokémon into their Poké Balls, hastily ran up the stairs. Black could still hear their faint voices, “Don’t think it’s over yet, you little kid...Ouch…Watch your steps…We’ll return, we’ll surely…”. “Bla, bla, bla”, said Black. Turning towards the Bagon, who was overjoyed by defeating the grunts, he said, “Little dragon, I know you have a liking towards me. And I respect what you did for me and my Arcanine today. So, how about you, just like my Arcanine, Pikachu and Gyarados, accompany me in my journey? As a partner, as a friend?”. The Bagon nodded vigorously. “Well, then…”, saying this, Black took out an empty Poké Ball from his bag and threw it towards Bagon, who was captured into the Poké Ball right away. But suddenly, Black felt the whole place shaking, and a stone chip fell from the roof and hit his head. “Ouch!”, exclaimed Black, “Looks like this place is breaking down by the impact of that combined attack. Well, it is time we take the Orb and rush outta here!” He turned round and could see a room, about 15 feet away, inside which he saw a shiny object, probably a spherical one, from which came out several rays of bright blue light. Black and his Arcanine ran towards that room…
At the place where we had previously seen Captain Falcon talking with an unknown man sitting on a throne, the same scene was occurring again. Leaning towards Captain Falcon, who bowed down, said, the man on the throne said, “It is sad to hear that the two grunts failed in stopping a mere little kid.” “Sire, the kid seems to have captured a Bagon, an extremely powerful one. The grunts were not ready for something like that.” “Hmm…now that he has got hold of the Adaman Orb, I guess he’ll be heading for Sinnoh. Well, I’d therefore instruct you to follow him on his course. And this time, I want nothing but success!”, the man ordered Captain Falcon. “YESZ, Lord Krotenius!”, the Captain Falcon bowed, and was about to leave, when the man on the throne, whom we now know to be Krotenius, called him back, “Wait! Take a peek at the Prince of Evil’s cell. There is something I don’t feel right..”. At this, the Captain shuddered, but bowed again, and left for the dark prison where we had previously seen the Captain and the Prince of Evil conversing. But upon arriving at the cell, not to much of his surprise, the Captain found the cell to be empty. He looked around for a bit and got his hands on a little note written in clear French words. It read:
Captain Falcon, je pars à Sinnoh pour un travail important, je ne peux pas vous le dire maintenant. Je suppose que Bobbyborn a déjà mis la main sur l'Orbe Adamant..If c'est le cas, alors je sais aussi où il va aller ensuite, et où Krotenius vous enverra à sa poursuite. Ainsi, une fois Krotetinus donne les ordres, rendez-vous à bord d'un navire de Sinnoh. Et assurez-vous Bobbyborn obtient l'Orb lustré ainsi. C'est tout, adieu jusque-là.
“Hmm..”, the Captain knit his brows for a while, and then went upstairs to Krotenius’ throne. A faint voice could be heard coming from there afterwards, “What? The Prince of Evil escaped!!! But how...”
Currently, Black was standing on the deck of a well-decorated ship headed for Sunnyshore City, Sinnoh. Arceus had reappeared to him, and instructed him to leave for a certain city of Sinnoh, where he would find another similar orb. He happily stared at the vast blue expanse of the sea. But he wasn’t aware that Captain Douglas Jay Falcon was on that ship as well.
Black was relaxedly standing on the edge of the ship's deck, near the front of the ship, leaning on the fence surrounding the deck and gazing at the beautiful ocean under the clear-blue sky, while on either sides of him, there were also many other people standing by the ship's fence as well, and they were also looking at the ocean and casually talking amongst each other, while some people were also taking pictures of various islands in the horizon with their mobile phones's cameras. Basically, the fence surrounding the deck of the ship was now completely occupied by people, and one could not find a part of the fence in front of which no one was currently standing. And behind the many people who were currently standing in front of a part of the ship's fence and gazing out at the ocean, there were also many other people on the ship's deck, who were not looking out at the ocean, but rather standing in groups and socializing with each other, while some were even drinking alcohol or smoking cigarettes and enjoying each other's company. In short, the entirety of the ship's deck was completely crowded, as many people were taking the ship on their trip to Sinnoh at the time.
Black then continued beholding the ocean at the edge of the loud and chaotic, yet peaceful crowd that was currently boarding the ship to Sinnoh, and much unlike the time when he witnessed the death of the Natu trainer, when he himself was attacked by Captain Falcon back in Clifferina Town's Pokémon Center, as well as the time when he was attacked by the man and the woman in the Temporal Ruins, Black was currently completely stress-free, and his mind was in a state of peace and relaxation. Black then folded his arms and placed them on the fence in front of him, while smiling happily as he rested the right side of his head on his arms, but the tranquility that he was currently experiencing was abruptly terminated and replaced with intense fear and shock as he suddenly heard Captain Falcon's loud voice coming from his right!
"Falcon Kick!" the Captain's loud voice was heard, and then Black immediately lifted his arms and head from the fence and looked to his right, and he widened his eyes and gasped at the sight he saw! One by one, starting from about the twentieth person to Black's right out of those who were standing in front of the ship's fence just like Black himself, all the people who were standing in front of the fence between Black and the aforementioned person were getting sent flying towards different directions with their bodies on fire, as a mysterious figure in a hooded black cloak that completely covered even his face in shadows, was performing a sliding kick along the deck of the ship at a very high speed straight towards Black himself! The mysterious figure's legs were also engulfed in some huge flames as he was performing his sliding kick, in a direction that was parallel to the fence in front of which Black was currently standing, and as he was performing his fiery sliding kick, he was also ramming into the numerous people who were standing to Black's right and in front of the ship's fence!
"Aaaaaarrghhh!!!" various men and women, who had been talking with each other and gazing out at the ocean peacefully merely seconds ago, were now screaming in excruciating pain as they were hurled into the air with their bodies engulfed in flames upon being hit by the mysterious figure's blazing kick, while the figure on fire was still sliding across the ground at a very high speed straight towards Black, hitting many people standing by the fence to Black's right in the process, and also sending them flying in flames and consequently making them scream in burning agony! The mysterious figure performing the fiery sliding kick, who had just sent about sixteen people flying in flames with his attack, then continued heading towards Black, ramming into the fourth, third, second, and first persons to Black's right and also sending them flying into the air and screaming in flames! The mysterious figure was then about to hit Black with his flaming physical attack, and Black widened his eyes as some bright orange light radiating from the intense flames surrounding the mysterious figure's legs shined in his face briefly, before he quickly backed away from the fence, and barely avoided being incinerated by the mysterious figure's devastating attack like the twenty people to his right!
"Argh!" Black then screamed as he fell on his back after barely dodging the mysterious figure's assault, something only he was able to do, as having personally had first-hand experience dealing with Captain Falcon himself, he recognized the fact that he was in danger at the very split second when he heard the Captain's loud voice from before, and was therefore able to react to the danger immediately, as he instinctly and instantly associated that man's voice with danger and death itself! After dodging the mysterious figure's fiery kick and falling on his back, Black then accidentally hit the back of the legs of a man who was standing behind him and holding a glass of beer, making that man drop that glass, and then it fell on the ground and shattered!
At the same time, after missing Black with his fiery sliding kick, the mysterious figure then continued sliding forward a bit with his legs engulfed in flames, hitting about five people who were standing to Black's left before, as since those people had not personally dealt with Captain Falcon before, they did not instantly associate the Captain's loud voice with the same things Black did, and were therefore not able to react as quickly to the danger the very sound of that voice presented. As the mysterious figure's fiery sliding kick hit those five people, they were also sent flying into the air and screaming in flames! After hitting those five people, the mysterious figure then ended his attack with a pose in which he had his head thrusted forward, his left knee bent, his right leg positioned at an angle of about thirty degrees to the ground, and he had his arms pointing behind his back in a dramatic way, making them resemble wings! As his fiery kick ended, the intense flames that were engulfing the mysterious figure's legs before faded away, but the mysterious figure's black cloak was currently on fire, as it had caught on fire from the mysterious figure's own attack from before. Furthermore, the part of the ship's deck between the position at in which the mysterious figure was currently standing, and the position at which he had begun his sliding kick attack, was currently burnt black by the mysterious figure's fiery attack from before.
Much of the crowd standing on the ship's deck then screamed and gasped loudly in fear, as they along with Black himself watched in shock at the eerie sight of the more than twenty people whom the mysterious figure had just sent flying in flames falling back down. About half of the people who were hurled into the air in flames landed back down on the ship's deck, with their bodies burning lifelessly on the ground, while the other half fell off the edge of the ship and into the ocean below, as they were all standing close to the ship's edge at the time when they were hit. Black and the rest of the crowd then immediately focused their attention on the mysterious figure, who had now just gotten out of his pose from before, and now stood up straight, with his black cloak still burning wildly in flames, while some people who were standing close to him also quickly backed away in fear, in such a way that they also accidentally knocked down some people who were standing directly behind them, amidst the ship's incredibly crowded deck! The mysterious figure then grabbed the burning cloak he was wearing with his right hand, before ripping it off his own body with quick move and throwing it away, revealing that the identity of the mysterious figure beneath the black cloak was none other than Captain Douglas Jay Falcon himself, dressed in his usual attire! Everyone in the crowd, including Black then gasped loudly as they saw that, while the burning black cloak which the Captain had thrown away before got blown away over the ocean by the wind! Immediately as he removed his cloak, Captain Falcon turned to face Black, who widened his eyes in fear as he saw that! The Captain then swung his right arm across his chest, before doing a fighting stance in which he clenched his right fist while pulling it back such that it was touching the right side of his body, while at the same time he pointed his left hand straight at Black, and said "Come on!" loudly, as he used his left hand to signal Black to come to him!
"So it's you again...!" Black then said angrily as he narrowed his eyes at Captain Falcon, while quickly getting up from the ground. Captain Falcon then started sprinting at a very high speed towards Black, who widened his eyes as he saw that!
"Tch!" Black then said as he lowered his head slightly while quickly regaining his concentration, as he hastily took three steps back away from Captain Falcon while pulling out a Poké Ball with his right hand and pressing a button on it, enlarging it so that he was ready to throw that Poké Ball and send out a Pokémon! The crowd then gasped in fear once again as they witnessed the Captain rushing towards Black to attack him!
"Holy crud... HE'S CAPTAIN FALCON!!!!" a teenager then screamed in fear with his eyes wide open in surprise as he grabbed his head dramatically with both hands while looking at the sprinting Captain with dread!
In complete and stark contrast with the extremely dangerous situation everyone on the ship were currently facing, another teenager who was standing next to the previous one audaciously took this situation to make a joke, and said "YESZ!" to the teenager who had screamed before, in a way that was clearly mimicing Captain Falcon's usual mannerism!
"The man who killed Antony in Blot City a few days ago... why would they allow someone like him on board?!" a woman with a frightened look on her face then said to her husband who was standing next to her, as her young daughter was also hugging her legs tightly in fear.
"He must've snuck in somehow, and avoided catching anyone's attention up until now by covering himself in that cloak..." the woman's husband then said to her, and although that man sounded a lot more calm than his wife, even he did not dare to take his eyes off Captain Falcon's extremely intimidating presence!
Meanwhile, as the Captain was sprinting at Black, he did a short but extremely fast and long jump at the boy, before performing two quick mid-air kicks at him, once with each leg!
"Ugh!" Black then grunted in pain as each of Captain Falcon's two kicks struck him straight in the face, flinching him before he could throw his Poké Ball! Black also immediately and involuntarily dropped the Poké Ball he was holding as the Captain's two kicks hit him, and the crowd once again gasped as they witnessed Captain Falcon beginning a merciless, physical assault on the boy! As they saw that, the crowd also quickly backed away from both Captain Falcon and Black, as they feared getting caught up in the violent action! This then left the center of the ship's deck relatively empty, as the crowd that was standing all over the deck of the ship before was now concentrated at the edges and corners of the deck, leaving only the Captain and the victim of his painful beatdown at the center of the ship's deck.
After performing two quick mid-air kicks at Black, Captain Falcon landed back on the ground right in front of Black, before immediately proceeding to deliver a quick jab at the boy's nose with his left fist, breaking the trainer's nose and making his nose bleed, before following with an equally-quick jab at Black's nose with his right fist, damaging Black's nose even more! After punching Black in the face twice, the Captain then grabbed Black by the shirt and struck him in the stomach with his left knee, making him cough out blood in response, before screaming "Hoot!" as he punched Black in the face hard with his right fist, throwing him forward!
"Ggaaahh!!!" Black screamed in pain with his eyes closed as much blood spouted out of his broken nose while he was knocked back by the Captain's punch, before Captain Falcon charged at him and grabbed him again, before hitting him three times in a row with his left knee while holding him!
"Urrgghh!!" Black then screamed again as he coughed out much blood.
Captain Falcon then grabbed the boy by the neck with his right hand and lifted him off his feet briefly, before shouting "Tat!" as he chokeslammed him to the ground with much power!
"Uaaaaaaarrghhhh!!!!" Black then let out a cry in fear and pain as he bounced off the ground and was sent tumbling into the air in front of the Captain, while drops of his own blood were flying all around him, and splattering on the ground below!
Captain Falcon then dashed towards the direction of Black, who was now falling head-first back to the ground, and as he dashed close to the boy, he crouched a bit while ceasing his dash and sliding forward on his feet a bit due to the momentum of his horizontal motion from before, and then he shouted "Tuwok!" as he delivered a quick and high upward kick at the falling Black with his left foot, before quickly performing a rightward 360 degree spin and then delivering a second quick and high upward kick at the airborne trainer, this time with his right foot!
After being hit by Captain Falcon's previous two upward kicks, which were both delivered within the space of less than a second, Black screamed "Iaaarrghh!!!" as he was sent flying high up into the air vertically by the Captain's second upward kick, which was performed with considerable power! Captain Falcon then jumped up into the air and delivered two quick kicks at Black while he was in mid-air, once with each leg, in the exact same manner as the two mid-air kicks he performed at Black when he first jumped at him!
"Ahhh!!!" Black, who was flying high up in the air, then screamed in pain as he coughed out some more blood, while he was also sent flying backward by the Captain's second mid-air kick!
After kicking Black twice in the air, Captain Falcon landed back on the ground, before immediately dashing fast towards Black, who was currently falling back down to the ground in front of him! As he dashed towards Black, the Captain did a short hop and performed a backflip in the air, upward kicking the falling trainer in the process and sending him flying even further away! After that, Captain Falcon landed back on the ground before immediately jumping at the airborne Black at a huge speed again! When the Captain jumped close to his target, he bent his elbows and pulled both of his fists back until they were touching his waists, while he positioned his right leg such that it looked as if he was about to deliver an extremely powerful knee smash at Black, in the exact same manner as when he attacked Black's Gyarados back in Clifferina Town's Pokémon Center! However, a split second before the Captain could successfully land his knee smash attack, he suddenly heard the Prince of Evil's voice coming from high above him to his left!
"Falcon..." the Prince of Evil's calm voice was heard, and just before the currently-airborne Captain Falcon could execute his knee smash attack at Black, who was also in mid-air, the Captain said "Woouugh!" as he widened his eyes in shock upon hearing that voice, and then he immediately cancelled the attack he was about to perform, before simply allowing himself to fly over Black, and then he landed back on the ship's deck with his knees slightly bent and slid on the ground on his feet for about a meter upon landing, due to the momentum of his jump from before. As Captain Falcon landed back on the deck of the ship, Black also landed back-first on the ground behind the Captain as well, in a pool of his own blood.
"Hah... hah... hah..." Black then panted tiredly and painfully on the ground with his eyes closed and blood leaking out of his entire badly-wounded body, including his nose and mouth, painting the ground around him red!
At the same time, after landing, Captain Falcon immediately raised his head up high and turned it to the left, to face the direction the Prince of Evil's voice from before had come from!
The ship on whose deck Captain Falcon was currently standing had four huge funnels at the top of its superstructure. As the Captain looked up to his left, he could barely see the tiny figure of a tall and large man with long curly hair and wearing a longcoat standing on top of the funnel that was closest to the front of the ship, looking down at Captain Falcon himself, with his hair and longcoat blowing in the wind!
"YESZ!" Captain Falcon then said loudly as he did a two-finger salute at the figure on top of the funnel.
"Qu'est-ce que tu vas faire de ce garçon?" the figure standing on top of the funnel then calmly said to Captain Falcon in the Prince of Evil's voice, revealing the identity of the man on top of the funnel to be none other than the Prince of Evil himself!
As he heard that, Captain Falcon continued looking up at the Prince of Evil without speaking, while the Prince of Evil also continued looking down at him, awaiting his response. A few seconds passed, during which the crowd standing on the ship's deck were also looking up at the Prince of Evil, watching the tense situation without daring to say a single word. Black, who was currently lying on the ground in a face-up position and breathing heavily, also opened his eyes, and could barely see the figure of the Prince of Evil standing on top of the huge funnel. Captain Falcon then slowly and nervously took three steps back away from the Prince of Evil.
As he saw that, the Prince of Evil calmly said "Qu'est-ce qui ne va pas?", before suddenly vanishing in a cloud of dark energy, making everyone on the deck at the front of the ship, including Captain Falcon himself, widen their eyes! "Je n'ai pas bien entendu votre réponse, le Captain Douglas Jay Falcon." Captain Falcon then suddenly heard the Prince of Evil's calm voice coming from right behind him, and then he immediately screamed "Whooaargh!" as he quickly turned around and took five steps back, as he saw the Prince of Evil standing right behind him, with his arms folded, and the crowd also gasped as they witnessed the Evil Prince suddenly teleporting right behind Captain Falcon! Now that the Prince of Evil was standing so close to the Captain himself in a brightly-lit place, the details of his physical appearance could be clearly seen for the very first time! The Prince of Evil was a tall and large man with long, curly black hair, a dark brown right eye, a moustache and a deep, vertical scar across the right side of his mouth, and wore a black eyepatch over his left eye, a black longcoat, a dark brown shirt underneath his longcoat, a silver belt with a black circular belt buckle, dark brown trousers and black trench boots, and he was also carrying a brown-sheathed rapier with a dark red helt at the left side of his waist. Captain Falcon and the Prince of Evil then stood facing each other for a few seconds, with the former standing in a shocked and defensive-looking position, while the latter simply stood up straight with his arms folded, appearing to be completely calm and collected! But then all of a sudden, the Prince of Evil raised his head a bit while slightly widening his calm-looking brown right eye as he noticed a large shadow covering him, while at the same time he heard the playful sound of a young girl's voice coming from above and behind him!
"He was going to kill him!" the girl's voice was heard, and then the Prince of Evil immediately turned his head just enough to look behind him with the corner of his right eye, while Captain Falcon also raised his head to look at the same sight that the Evil Prince was currently beholding!
A medium-sized pink spaceship that resembled and was shaped like a falcon, had white wings at the back with some red color on the wings, was light blue underneath, had a pair of yellow windows on both sides of the ship near the front, located in such a way that they resembled the eyes of a falcon, was currently floating in the air a bit above and in front of the ship on whose deck Captain Falcon and the Prince of Evil were currently standing, casting a huge shadow over the front part of the ship's deck! This spaceship also had three jets underneath it, which enabled it to stay airborne, and it was facing the ship where Captain Falcon and the Prince of Evil were, and also floating backward in the air at the exact same velocity as the one with which the ship in front of it was currently sailing, meaning that the floating spaceship was currently completely stationary in the air relative to the sailing ship in front of it. And standing on top of this pink spaceship was a relatively petite and young girl with large yellow eyes, long black hair, and wearing a military cap and a thigh-length trenchcoat which both strongly resembled that worn by the woman who had attacked Black in the Temporal Ruins before, except this girl's military hat and trenchcoat were light blue instead of white, and she also had a golden falcon symbol emblazed on the front of her military cap, rather than the letters "LFS". This black-haired girl also wore a short, light blue cape that reached down to her knees, a black belt with a blue heart-shaped belt buckle, as well as a pair of light blue boots that reached about halfway up her shins, and this, combined with the fact that her trenchcoat only reached down to her thighs, revealed most of her legs. Captain Falcon and the Prince of Evil were currently looking up at the black-haired girl standing on top of the pink spaceship, who had her arms crossed in front of her chest while covering it with the top of her trenchcoat, and was looking down at the Prince of Evil with a smug smile on her face, while her hair and cape were blowing wildly in the wind!
"Les Falcons Satanique Vice-Capitaine... Lolila Loreleiana..." the Prince of Evil then calmly said to the black-haired girl, identifying her as Lolila Loreleiana, the Vice-Captain of "Les Falcons Satanique".
"Isn't this a lovely coincidence!" Lolila then said in a laughing, playful voice, while still smiling smugly and confidently at the Prince of Evil. "Lord Krotenius assigned me the mission of looking for you..." she then continued, before moving her eyes to look at Black, who was still on the ground surrounded by his own blood, and was currently also looking up at Lolila with the corners of his eyes, looking extremely confused by the current situation! "...and I also happen to find Arceus's Chosen Hero at the same place as well... in a pool of his own blood too! How adorable ♥" Lolila then continued.
"Vous les..." the Prince of Evil then said while still looking at Lolila with the corner of his right eye. "...traîtres!" he then continued angrily, as he turned his head to his front again to look at Captain Falcon.
""Traitors"? You talk as if we were ever on your side!" Lolila then said as she focused her attention back on the Prince of Evil, while still smiling smugly.
"Quoi?" the Prince of Evil then said, as he once again turned his head just enough to look at Lolila standing behind him with the corner of his right eye.
"If it's to make Lord Krotenius happy..." Lolila then said, and immediately after that, the sound of many small flying spaceships could be heard coming from every direction up in the sky! The Prince of Evil, and everyone else on the deck of the ship then immediately looked up at the sky, and saw a dozen small car-like spaceships, which were each of a different color, flying through the air above the ship! As those small and colorful spaceships flew over the deck of the ship, they also momentarily turned upside down, before the cockpits of those spaceships opened up, and then six men and six women descended from the spaceships, falling straight down towards the deck of the ship on which Captain Falcon and the Prince of Evil were currently standing! The six men who descended from the spaceships were dressed in uniform exactly the same as that worn by the man who had attacked Black in the Temporal Ruins before, while the six women who descended from the spaceships were dressed in uniform exactly the same as that worn by the woman who had attacked Black in the Temporal Ruins before! The twelve small spaceships from which the twelve people descended then each instantly sped off on their own and disappeared into different directions across the horizon, while the six men and six women, who were falling head-first towards the deck of the ship, then each did half a backflip, such that they all landed on their feet on the deck of the ship, in a formation such that they were completely surrounding the Prince of Evil from all sides! Immediately as they landed, the twelve men and women immediately pulled out their pistols and pointed them with both hands at the Prince of Evil! "...I'd do anything in the world ♥" Lolila then ended her previous sentence enthusiastically!
As Captain Falcon saw the Prince of Evil being held at gunpoint, he shouted "Turt!" as he jumped off his feet and high up in the air, before landing on the left side of Lolila, on top of the pink medium-sized spaceship on which she was standing, while looking down at the Prince of Evil and the twelve people surrounding him. Captain Falcon then turned his head to right and lowered it to look down at Lolila, who was shorter than him, while Lolila turned her head to her left to look up at the Captain. Captain Falcon then smiled and nodded at the girl, who also nodded at the Captain, before focusing her attention back on the twelve people surrounding the Prince of Evil on the deck of the ship below.
"Now, boys and girls... seize the Evil Prince so that we can take him back to our headquarters! And as for Black... take the Adamant Orb from him! And make sure to kill him too!" Lolila then said to the twelve people surrounding the Prince of Evil, and she also ended her last sentence with great emphasis as well as a huge, excited smile on her face! Black on the ground then widened his eyes and gasped in fear as he heard that, while the twelve people surrounding the Prince of Evil clicked their guns, and then...
Prince of Evil gnashed his teeth and raised his hands above his head, with clenched fists, and said, "Je me rends." Captain Falcon and Lolila smiled and together said, "Yes, and you should have done that earlier!" The Prince, with his hands still upwards, now said, "Avant de commencer, pourriez-vous entendre quelques mots de moi?" "Oh, sure, my lord!", said the Captain, giving stress on the last two words. "Te moques de moi, hein?", started the Captain, "Eh bien, n'ai-je pas vous dire que Bobbyborn est beaucoup utile pour nous? C'était une jolie insultant pour moi de vous voir brutalement attaquer ce pauvre garçon, et plus que cela, désobéissant à mes ordres! Mais encore une fois, c'était de ma faute à faire confiance à un traître comme toi..." "Bla, bla, bla!", interrupted Lolila, "Hey, we don't have an entire day to listen your seemingly endless lecture! Time's up." But the Captain shook his head in both directions, and said, "No, Lolila, let me hear what this old man's got to say." Lolila replied, seeming to be a bit annoyed, "Tch...well, continue." The Prince of Evil again started, but still irritated at this sudden interruption, "Savoir ce que le capitaine, j'avais toujours pensé à vous en tant que chevalier chevaleresque, qui ne voulait pas laisser de côté son maître, même en temps de grave danger. Mais je me trompais, il est déjà terminée." Oddly enough, the captain smiled out; Suddenly, he said loudly, "Vous imbéciles! Chacun d'entre vous doit mourir maintenant." Without giving anyone any time to think he flung out a Poké Ball in the air from inside his hands remaining upwards, revealing the fact that he had swiftly taken a Poké Ball inside his hands. Out came a shiny Ditto from the Poké Ball, and swiftly transformed into a shiny Reshiram in mid-air. "FIRE! BLAST THE PRINCE", yelled out the captain. Immediately before the 12 grunts could fire their guns, Reshiram-transformed Ditto, currently flying before the Prince of Evil, surrounded itself and its trainer with a golden wall of light. The bullets came from the grunts’ guns towards the wall, but were instantly deflected the moment they hit it. “Metamorph, DRACO METEOR!!!”, the Prince of Evil now commanded to his Ditto, with a smile on his face. The Reshiram-transformed Ditto began gathering lots of destructive draconic energy inside its mouth, in the form of a sphere. “Blast it!”, roared the Captain. Lolila, showing a great rapidity of taking decisions, said to the grunts, “Hey, you! STOP! Withdraw to your ships and charge your laser cannons!” Therefore, in an attempt to launch an aerial attack, the grunts stopped firing and withdrew to their individual spaceships, which were hovering all around the ship. But they were late. The draconic energy sphere of Reshiram had now turned massive, and it fired the whole sphere towards the sky, through the golden wall of light. The sphere went high up, and exploded, making several meteors filled with draconic energy shower on the spaceships. The spaceship on which Captain Falcon and Lolila were standing, was hit first. With a massive explosion from the impact, the whole spaceship, along with Falcon and Lolila fell to the sea. “NOOOOO!!!!”, the Captain’s voice could be heard. Meteors showered all around the ship, knocking every spaceship to the sea. Within a while, not even a single trace of Les Falcons Satanique could be found on or around the ship. “Metamorph, maintenant, se transforment en Leuphorie. Et utiliser Vibra Soin sur le garçon.”, said the captain to his Ditto. The Ditto, responding to its master’s order’s instantly shape-shifted into a shiny Blissey. The Blissey-transformed Ditto began glowing in a pink aura; which eventually became concentrated around the Pokémon’s hands. Now, the Blissey-transformed Ditto created a sphere of pink energy and fired it towards Black, laying half-dead on the ship’s floor, in multiple pink rings. The rings hit Black, and Black also began glowing in a pinkish aura. The glow brightened and the wounds all around Black’s body began to disappear. The blood that was smeared all around Black was transformed into pink sparkles of energy, which converged at a point and entered Black’s body in the form of a beam. After a while, the aura faded out, and Black appeared to be completely healed. “Eh bien, c'est fini. La tête de temps pour le Nord. Bobbyborn, les traîtres ne sera pas en mesure de prendre le moindre égratignure sur vous, en ma présence, tu es comme un bijou précieux à mes yeux,” the Prince smiled in a twisted way and then called his Ditto back into its Poké Ball. And instantly, in the same manner as he had done this before, he teleported out of the whole scene. Black regained consciousness and stood up, casting a horrified look on the deck of the ship, which seemed like a war-field after a apocalyptic war had just ended.
Black now stood alone at the front of the ship's deck, as the huge crowd of people who were with him before had now retreated back inside the ship, in fear of being caught up in the extremely violent conflict that had occured on the deck of the ship before.
"Ugh... what happened? Where did everyone... go...?" Black then thought, as he had lost consciousness sometime after the Prince of Evil's Reshiram-transformed Ditto created the golden wall of light before, and therefore missed out on seeing that Ditto defeating the fourteen Les Falcons Satanique members with Draco Meteor, as well as everything that had happened after that point until he woke up. Though he was extremely confused about where Captain Falcon, Lolila, the Prince of Evil and the twelve Les Falcons Satanique Grunts had disappeared to, as well as how exactly he himself was healed back to perfect condition, he sighed in relief upon knowing... or rather, believing that the massive conflict he was in before had now somehow completely ended, at least for the time being. He then looked at the pitch-black and burned corpses of some of the people who were killed by Captain Falcon's fiery sliding kick from before, which were still lying lifelessly on the edge of the ship's deck, though the flames that enveloped their bodies had now faded away. Black then looked down at the ground, feeling some amount of sadness and sorrow upon witnessing the fate of those victims, especially since he knew that they had all died partially because of him, as they were merely caught in Captain Falcon's attack, which Black knew was aimed at no one but Black himself. Black then raised his head to look at the burned corpses again for a few seconds, with a slightly teary look in his eyes, when suddenly, he heard Purple's voice coming from his right!
“Black!” Purple’s voice was heard, and then Black immediately turned to his right and saw Purple coming out of a door that led inside the ship’s superstructure!
“Purple...” Black then said with his eyes widened, looking surprised, as Purple hastily ran up to him.
“Hey, Black! What’s goin’ on, man? Why are you here? And who were those people from before? Is it true that Captain friggin' FALCON was on this ship just now?” Purple then asked Black in concern. Just then, he noticed the burned corpses of Captain Falcon’s victims from before. “And... what the...” Purple then continued with his eyes wide open in shock, unable to understand what was happening.
“Well...” Black then answered, as he looked to the side, at the same corpses Purple was currently looking at. Then he looked back at Purple and said “It’s... Well, it’s a long story... basically, Captain Falcon was on this ship earlier and he was the one who killed those guys. He appears to be a part of a group who call themselves “Les Falcons Satanique”, but to be honest, not even I know much about them or what they want...”
“Holy *bleep*...” Purple then said, as he still had his eyes on the corpses, while trying hard to take in what he saw.
“As for why I’m here... well, I’m currently heading towards Sinnoh...” Black continued.
“Oh really, same here!” Purple then said as he turned to his attention back to Black, though he was still distressed by the sight of the burned corpses. “Well, what a coincidence. So did your grandpa send you there so you can have your adventure there as well, like me?” he continued.
“Well, no... you see, it’s actually a long story, and to be honest I don’t understand much of what’s going on either, but you see...” Black then said, before pausing for a while, preparing to explain his motivation for going to Sinnoh to Purple. But during that brief moment of silence, Black and Purple both suddenly heard the faint sound of Captain Falcon’s voice coming from beneath the ocean, right underneath the center of the ship on which the two trainers were standing!
“Falcon... PAUNCH!” the Captain’s excited shout was heard, though it did not sound very loudly as it came from beneath the sea.
Immediately after hearing that, Black and Purple both widened their eyes and gasped as they looked down at the ground, towards the direction where the voice had come from, which was right beneath the ship’s superstructure! And just a split second after Captain Falcon’s voice was heard, a very loud popping sound followed, coming from the exact same direction as the Captain’s voice, as if an incredibly powerful underwater explosion had just happened right beneath the ship at the center! That loud popping sound was also accompanied by an extremely loud noise coming from the same direction, which sounded like the bottom of the ship was just smashed to pieces by something extremely powerful, and a split second after that, Black and Purple both widened their eyes even more as they felt the whole ship shaking violently, before they both suddenly saw the entire superstructure of the ship bursting into flames in a massive and spectacular explosion which completely engulfed most of the huge ship at its center, and this explosion was in turn followed by much screaming coming from inside the ship itself!
“Wow, wow, wow!” Purple then said in much surprise as he and Black both rapidly backed away from the ship’s superstructure, which was now burning in a gigantic inferno several times higher than the entire height of the ship, while much bright orange light coming from the flames was shining in the two boys’s eyes, as well as on a large part of the ocean’s surface around the burning ship! Some thick, pitch-black smoke was also coming out of the fire and filling the sky, while much screaming could be heard coming from directly beneath the deck on which Black and Purple were standing. Though much in contrast to the screaming that was coming from beneath the front of the ship’s deck, absolutely nothing except for the roaring sound of the raging inferno could be heard from within the ship’s superstructure, indicating that not a single person out of the hundreds of passengers within that part of the ship was alive anymore, as everyone within the ship’s superstructure had instantly perished in the flames!
“Just what is going on?!!” Black then said, as the peace and relief that he was experiencing just a moment ago was once again replaced by complete fear and despair!
"YESZ!" the faint sound of Captain Falcon's voice could then be heard once again, coming from under the ocean directly beneath the ship!
"Tch! Is it his doing again?!" Black then said angrily as he looked down at the ground while furiously clenching both of his fists.
"Captain Falcon!" Purple then remarked with great fear as he also looked down at the ground, at the direction where the Captain's voice came from before!
Just then, Black and Purple both felt the deck of the ship on which they were standing tilting diagonally, with the side that was closest to the front of the ship tilting upward! As they noticed that, the two trainers immediately started sprinting towards the front of the ship in order to avoid falling into the gigantic inferno engulfing the ship’s center, and as they did that, the burned corpses of the people Captain Falcon had killed before slid towards the center of the ship, until they fell into the raging flames burning the ship's superstructure!
But while Black and Purple were running towards the front of the ship, the entire ship they were boarding suddenly snapped in half at the center! Black and Purple, who were both running up the slanted ship, then both widened their eyes as they heard a loud noise that occurred as the ship snapped, and then the two boys reached the front of the ship and grabbed onto the fence there before turning their heads around, and then they noticed that both of the separated halves of the ship were now slanted at about forty five degrees, though at opposite directions to each other!
At that moment, Black noticed a relatively small splash of water happening on the surface of the ocean at the left side of the ship, and then he saw Captain Falcon jumping diagonally upward and forward out of the water at a direction such that he was travelling away from the currently sinking and burning ship, while holding the slumped body of Lolila, who was currently unconscious, in his right arm!
“Ghh!!!” Black then said while clenching his teeth together angrily as he extremely hatefully looked at Captain Falcon, who also briefly glanced at Black with the corner of his right eye, before suddenly shouting “KAM AWN!” as he did a two-finger salute with his left hand, and as he did that, a small flying blue machine that resembled a cross between a race car and a spaceship, which also had a white “07” in front of it, suddenly flew over the ocean’s surface at an unbelievably high speed, towards Captain Falcon from his left! As the incredibly fast blue machine flew past the Captain, the top of its cockpit opened up, and then Captain Falcon, who was still carrying the unconscious Lolila in his right arm, jumped inside the machine! The top of the blue car-like machine then closed, and then Captain Falcon started piloting the machine, with the unconscious Lolila being taken inside it! "BRUUUUUU FARUKON!!!!!!!!" the Captain then continued as he sped off in his blue machine and disappeared into the horizon within a matter of seconds, at the same direction where the ship had been sailing before, leaving Black, Purple, and everyone else on the sinking and burning ship under the currently-setting Sun to drown in the ocean and die!
While still holding onto the fence at the front of the slanted and snapped ship, Purple said "Wow! That's Captain Falcon himself!" with his eyes widened, looking extremely shocked as he faced the North, where Captain Falcon and Lolila had disappeared into the horizon before.
As Purple was exhibiting that reaction, Black started thinking of a way to get out of the sticky situation he was currently in. But then suddenly, he said "Gyarados!" while widening his eyes nervously as he suddenly remembered the Poké Ball he had dropped when Captain Falcon kicked him before! Then he quickly looked down at the front of the ship's deck, which had slanted to about eighty degrees to the horizontal now, and noticed that the Poké Ball he had dropped on the deck of the ship earlier was now nowhere to be seen!
“Noooo! I-I’ve l-l-lost my G-gya-rados!” exclaimed Black, with a horrified look on his face. Purple’s face became deathly pale, and he cast a grim look on Black. Purple murmured, “We, we…can’t d-d-die..!!!” Black looked at the other part of the ship with the raging inferno on it. One-fifth of the boat had already sunk into the ocean. But in the bright sunlight, he suddenly spotted a sparkling object among the waters that had entered into the other part of the ship. “Gyarados’ Poké Ball” he exclaimed. Purple's face, which was currently brightened by this sudden observation, whitened again. He said in a shaky tone, “B-but how will you go to the other side! Y-you can’t return from there al-ive!” Black thought for a moment, and then again said, joyfully enough, “I still have my Bagon.” He threw out a Poké Ball from his bag and out came that little Bagon of his. “Wha-harrr!!”, it roared. “Hey, buddy, listen --- you see that big fire there? Now come on, fire a Hydro Pump as forcefully at that as you can!” Bagon nodded vigourously in reply, and began collecting blue Water-type energy inside its mouth. A smile appeared on Purple’s face. After a while, Black’s Bagon concentrated all the energy in a blue glowing orb, and then fired a big jet of water at the inferno. After being hit, lots of water vapour filled the area instantly, and within a while, that big fire was nowhere to be seen! “Well done!” Black patted his little friend, and then enthusiastically said, “Gyarados, I’m coming!” He started running, and when he arrived at the gap that had been created between the two parts after the ship had been split, he leaped up in the air. He safely landed on the other side and, running with great speed, grabbed the half-floating Poké Ball. He held out the Poké Ball in the air, and seeing its sparkle from the other side, Purple exclaimed, “OH YEAH!!”
Currently, Black and Purple were standing at the mouth of Route 222 in Sinnoh, just outside Sunyshore City. They had arrived here just the previous evening, at about dusk, riding on Black’s Gyarados. The two trainers were fortunate enough that the shipwreck had occurred quite near to the Sunyshore Port. It was after their arrival that the Sinnoh Navy sent an investigating team to the location of the shipwreck, after an official of the navy heard about the incident from Black and Purple, the two survivor trainers. Purple told Black that he had come here to take part in the Sinnoh League, and his first destination was Roark’s gym at Oreburgh City. “I’m sad I can’t accompany you…”, said Black. Purple replied, “Your destination is different and I can’t be late as well. I’ve heard that Roark will soon leave for Canalve City to meet his Dad. So I’m kinda in a hurry to get the Coal Badge.” “Yeah, Nurse Joy said that my Gyarados needs at least one day of rest. So I can’t leave before tomorrow” The two trainers shook hands and Purple said, smiling, “Don’t you worry, my friend! We’ll soon meet again!” Black nodded and bade Purple goodbye. He walked into the city and strolled down the street. He stopped at one point and leaned his back against the wall, and thought what he would do next. His next destination, as instructed by Arceus, was the Snowpoint Temple. He thought for a while, and was about to leave for the Pokémon Centre, when he suddenly spotted a man standing on the other side of the road, reading a newspaper. The man had spiky blue hair and a very rough face. He wore a white jacket and black trousers. His brows were knit as he read the newspaper. After some time, he folded the newspaper and put it away in his side-bag. In the process, a piece of paper, a leaflet, fell off. But the man seemed to be ignorant of the paper and walked away, absent-mindedly. Black swiftly went to the other side of the road and picked up the paper. It was an old paper, torn at some parts. It seemed like some kind of a manifesto, the main writings of which Black did not bother to read. He just read the title of the paper, “Team Galaxy”. Not knowing anything of this sort, he went after the man and said, “Excuse me, Sir. I think this paper belongs to you.” The man turned back and cast a hard look on Black. He hastily took the paper from Black’s hands and quite mechanically said, “Thank you.” He then put it inside his bag and walked away. “Hm…a pretty strange man,” Black said to himself.
With nothing else left to do, Black headed back to Sunyshore City's Pokémon Center.
As that was happening, Krotenius was currently sitting on his throne, with his body leaned back, his arms on the throne’s armrests, and both feet on the ground. His entire body was also covered in shadows as usual. Before Krotenius, at the center of the throne room, were five poles, each with a person tied to it by some chains, and those five people were each facing Krotenius, though their faces could not be seen due to the darkness that engulfed the room. The silhouettes of five Les Falcons Satanique Grunts - three males and two females - could also be seen standing behind the five people who were each tied to a pole, and facing Krotenius, while the silhouettes of twelve more people could also be seen standing in the throne room in front of Krotenius, with six of them standing in a row between two huge pillars on the side of the room to Krotenius's right, while the other six were standing in a row on the side of the room to Krotenius's left, also between two huge pillars, with both of the lines formed by the twelve people being parallel to Krotenius's line of vision, as well as the two rows of gigantic pillars found on either sides of the throne room. All twelve of the aforementioned people were also facing the center of the throne room, where the five people each tied to a pole were, meaning that the twelve figures standing in a line on the side of the room to Krotenius's left were all facing the twelve people standing in a line on the side of the room to Krotenius's right, and vice-versa, and all the lines of visions of all twelve of those people were also perpendicular to the lines of vision of Krotenius, the five people each tied to a pole, and the five Les Falcons Satanique Grunts who were standing in the room. Because they were only silhouettes in a dark room, the details of the twelve people's appearances remained a complete mystery, although some information about their appearances were apparent given the shape of their shadows:
The figure who was standing closest to Krotenius to his left appeared to be a tall man wearing a flat hat, a blazer, trousers and leather shoes, who was standing up straight with his arms down his sides, giving off a serious-looking, straight-laced and professional appearance. The person who was standing to the left of the aforementioned person was a thin, yet muscular man with curly hair, large round earrings each with a falcon-shaped part at the bottom, carrying a heavy machinegun behind his back, and wearing a sleeveless shirt, baggy pants and slippers, who was also standing up straight but had his hands in his pockets and was shaking his right leg, giving a laid-back appearance much in contrast to that of the man wearing a flat hat. To the left of the man with the earrings was a bulky full-figured woman with long, curly hair, dressed in a skin-tight suit, and standing with her large, thick arms folded below her breasts, while she also had a big pistol attached to both sides of her large waist, and she also carried a shotgun over her right shoulder. To the left of the full-figured woman was a quite man of medium height with short, spiky hair, a labcoat, trousers, and sneakers. He was also wearing a pair of glasses with round lens, something that was evident by the fact that a pair of light-reflecting circles were present on his silhoutte at the place where his eyes would be, and he was currently standing with his left arm across his chest, his left hand supporting his right elbow, and his right hand fixing his glasses. To the left of the man with glasses was a quite tall man with well-groomed hair, and wearing a large and long cape with huge, raised collars at the top, trousers, and a pair of large boots. And to the left of this person was an androgynous person, who was of medium height, had extremely long hair that seemed to be wrapped extremely thickly and tightly around their entire upper body, and also was not wearing any pants or shoes, revealing their long, slender and rather feminine legs and feet. This person's arms were also not visible, as they seemed to be wrapped up within their extremely long and huge hair.
The figure who was standing closest to Krotenius to his right was a tall man with short hair, wearing robes and boots, and carried two short but broad sheathed swords at the sides of his waists. To the right of this person was a slender and busty teenage girl with long, flowy hair and a small amount of it tied to a small ponytail, and wearing a top with neither sleeves nor shoulder straps, a pair of sleeves that were not attached to her top, a short skirt, and boots, and she was also carrying what appeared to be a longsword in a sheath at the left side of her waist. Just like the man with the flat hat, this girl stood up straight with her arms down her sides, giving her a serious-looking appearance. To the right side of the teenage girl stood a short and elderly woman whose head was covered in a hood, but her face was uncovered enough to reveal her unusually long and pointed nose, and she was wearing a shirt, a dress, and leaning forward, supporting herself with a walking stick. She was also the shortest person currently in Krotenius's throne room. To the right of that old woman was an extremely tall, fit and muscular man who appeared to be even more muscular than Captain Falcon himself, and he had a mohawk, and was wearing nothing except for a pair of shorts, a pair of boxing gloves, and sneakers, and this man was standing up straight with his arms down his sides, just like the man with the flat hat and the teenage girl. Of all the people currently standing in Krotenius's throne room, the man with the mohawk and boxing gloves was also the second tallest, and standing to his right was by far the tallest person in the room: He was an unbelievably huge and hulking figure who was almost twice as tall as the man with the mohawk as well as being about six times his total size, and had a pair of unusually long and insanely thick and muscular arms and fists, which were gigantic even in proportion to his already-massive body! He was also standing in an extremely bizarre position for a human, as he was standing on all fours, with his front body leaning forward and his enormous fists placed on the ground in front of him like a mountain gorilla, although despite the fact that he was standing on all fours, his knees were not bent at all, as although his legs were long and thick relative to that of everyone else in the room, they were short and thin relative to his extremely long and huge arms. This unbelievably gigantic, gorilla-like person had almost no hair on his head, except for just a few coming out of the very top of his massive head, and he also appeared to be wearing a pair of shorts, a pair of extremely large spiky collars around his wrists, large boots, and a sleeveless shirt that revealed his absolutely massive arms, each of which were about the size of the average person currently in Krotenius's room! And finally, to the right of that massive individual was what appeared to be a young woman about the same height as the teenage girl in the room, although she was even thinner, having a body bordering on anorexia, and had a flat chest, long hair that seemed to cover all four sides of her head and thus covering her face, and was wearing some robes, but she was barefoot. This woman's body was slightly slumped forward, with her arms hanging down in front of her in a very creepy manner. This woman's posure, along with the fact that she was completely not moving her body at all, as not even her breathing could be visibly observed unlike that of everyone else in the room, would make one question whether she was even alive, or merely a standing corpse.
“Welcome to my castle. It is an honor to meet the five of you… the greatest Pokémon researchers of Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, and Unova.” Krotenius then calmly said to the five people tied to a pole before him with delight.
“Dammit! You bastard! Let us go!” the person tied to the pole to Krotenius’s very left then shouted angrily in a female voice, confirming her gender, as she struggled against the chains that tied her to the pole in an attempt to escape, without success though.
“I am willing to let you go… as soon as one of you tell me, and I confirm the location of the Azure Flute.” Krotenius then said.
“We already told you! We know nothing about it!” the person tied to the pole to Krotenius’s very right then shouted in Professor Oak’s voice, confirming his identity as Professor Oak!
“Supposing such an item even exists in the first place, the Azure Flute was forged way back during the Ancient Pokémon War Era, if such an event even happened in the first place! For the longest of time, it has only been spoken of in legend. No one known to history has even touched such an item in the last four thousand years!” the person tied to the pole second to Krotenius’s left then said in a male voice.
“I see. That’s a shame then. If that’s the way it’s going to be, then I’ll just let my dragons…” Krotenius then said, as some loud and intimidating beast-like roars were suddenly heard coming from directly behind the gigantic dragon statue behind Krotenius’s throne! Immediately after that, the silhouettes of a Charizard and a Salamence suddenly appeared from the left side of the dragon statue from behind it, while the silhouettes of a Garchomp and a Hydreigon suddenly appeared from the right side of the statue from behind it, and then the four dragons each faced the five people tied to the poles and let out some loud and intimidating roars, frightening the five people tied to the poles! “…slowly feast upon your flesh over the next three days... until you either die of blood loss, or tell me the truth.” Krotenius then continued, shocking the five people tied to the poles!
“You bastard!” the woman tied to the pole to Krotenius’s very left then shouted angrily and fearfully as she heard that, while the other four people who were tied to a pole each gasped loudly in fear and despair!
“With that said, leave Professor Oak alone though. We may need him in perfect condition… just in case of something.” Krotenius then said, and as he ended his sentence, he placed his left elbow on the left armrest of his throne, pointed his left forearm upward while gently clenching his left fist, and then leaned the left side of his face comfortably on his left fist. The silhouettes of the Charizard, Salamence, Garchomp and Hydreigon then suddenly lunged at the five people tied to the poles in front of Krotenius at a very high speed, while letting out some vicious roars!
Meanwhile, Black was currently sitting on a couch inside Sunyshore City's Pokémon Center, as he waited for his Gyarados to recover. He rested comfortably and relaxedly on the couch with his body leaned back and his hands behind his head, as he started thinking about everything he experienced so far on his journey, as well as what may lie ahead of him.
"Damn that Captain Falcon...! I'll never forgive him!" Black then thought to himself, as he visibly clenched his teeth together angrily for a brief amount of time, while he remembered all the crimes he personally witnessed Captain Falcon performing so far, including killing the Natu trainer dressed in gray, brutally and physically assaulting Black himself on two separate occasions, and sinking the ship Black had boarded before, on top of killing hundreds of people on that ship. Black then closed his eyes for a bit and sighed in order to clear that anger from his mind. After that, he reopened his eyes, displaying a more thoughtful look in them, and wondered "But how exactly did I get healed back to perfect condition despite what Captain Falcon did to me back then? I asked Purple, and he said didn't know as he didn't personally witness the event..." Then he slowly raised his head to look up at the ceiling, and then he thought "Such a miraculous event... could it be the work of Arceus Himself...?” Then he lowered his head again while closing his eyes, and thought “Well, in any case, I guess there’s no use wondering about that right now. What I should be focusing on is my mission of collecting that Orb of Space from the Snowpoint Temple. I wonder what it will be like going there… I heard that travelling along Routes 216 and 217 is quite tough…” Just then, he heard a news report coming from the Pokémon Center’s television:
“Following the recent disappearances of four Pokémon Professors around the world, the greatest Pokémon Researcher of Sinnoh, Professor Rowan, specializing in the study of Pokémon evolution, was found missing this morning as well.” The news reporter said, and then Black immediately opened his eyes and turned his attention to the television! “With the disappearance of Professor Rowan, this marks the fifth Pokémon researcher to have mysteriously disappeared over the past two days.” The news reporter then continued, and then Black widened his eyes and gasped as he heard that! Then he noticed two men who were standing close to the television and watching the broadcast while talking with each other.
“Professor Rowan disappeared?! Just what the hell is going on?!” one of the men then said to the other. “Someone must be plotting something, if the most famous Professors of Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Unova… and now Sinnoh, have all become missing over the space of two days. Either that, or the Professors themselves may be up to something among themselves, that they don’t want the rest of the world to know…” the other man replied then, and then Black displayed a shocked expression on his face as he heard that!
“Prof… the most famous Professor of Kanto is missing?!” Black then suddenly stood up from the couch and shouted in fear at the two men who were talking, interrupting their conversation, and then the two men turned to face Black. “You mean… Professor Oak?!!” Black continued, looking and sounding extremely worried!
“Yeah, haven’t you been paying attention to the news? Over the last two days, Professor Oak, Professor Elm, Professor Birch and Professor Juniper have all mysteriously disappeared without a trace.” one of the men said, and then Black widened his eyes even more while a drop of sweat ran down his forehead as he heard that, as he struggled to take in what he was hearing! “Not only that, but there’s absolutely no suspects so far either, considering the alleged kidnappings all occurred in different regions. I suspect that this must be the work of some kind of criminal organization…” the man continued.
“Professor Oak was last seen in the Pokémon Center of Blot City in the Souther Region, at around the same time as when Captain Falcon murdered Antony there.” the other man then said, and then Black, overcome with fear and despair, suddenly shouted “GRANDPA!!!!!!!!” in an extremely loud voice while having an absolutely insane look in his eyes, catching the attention of everyone in the Pokémon Center, as he quickly pulled out a black mobile phone with his right hand and began rapidly and maniacally dialling a number! After he finished dialling, he placed the phone to his right ear and began waiting for his call to be answered, while breathing heavily, as his entire face was also sweating heavily! In the meantime, he looked at the television, on which the news reporter was still giving his report.
“The victim was last seen in his laboratory in Sandgem Town last night. While his disappearance along with that of the four Professors before him is nothing short of shocking news, this incident also serves to give us some insight regarding the culprit behind not only this event, but also the disappearance of the other four Pokémon Professors.” said the news reporter, and then the television screen changed to show a scene of some police officers in Sandgem Town, talking to some white labcoat-dressed Pokémon researchers, who appeared to be heavily injured, and had bandages all over their bodies. “According to Professor Rowan’s assistants, the culprits behind the Professor’s kidnapping were a man and a woman dressed in uniform with the letters “LFS” on them, who broke into Professor Rowan’s laboratory at around 3am last night. They called themselves members of an organization known as “Les Falcons Satanique,” and were after information on the location of the Azure Flute, a legendary item described in Sinnoh mythology as a key that is capable of unlocking the stairs to the Hall of Origin, the place where the Legendary Pokémon Arceus is said to reside.” The news reporter’s voice then continued in the background.
“Damn you, Les Falcons Satanique!!!!!!!” Black then said angrily with his head slightly lowered while clenching his teeth together and displaying an extremely furious look in his eyes!
“Professor Rowan’s assistants claimed that when Professor Rowan refused to reveal any information regarding the Azure Flute, the alleged “Les Falcons Satanique” members forcefully kidnapped him. The assistants tried to resist, but their Pokémon were no match for that of the kidnappers, which, the assistants claimed, were a Pelipper and a Fearow. After the “Les Falcons Satanique”’s Pokémon overcame those of Professor Rowan’s assistants, the assistants themselves received several bullets to their bodies from firearms carried by the criminals, before, as one of the assistants claimed, the two criminals escaped with Professor Rowan, with what appeared to be F-Zero machines.” the news reporter’s voice then continued, before the television screen displayed the news reporter again. “In addition to knowing the potential name of the criminal organization behind the recent kidnappings, police is currently also investigating a likely link between the ones responsible for said kidnappings, and the F-Zero Pilot 07 - Captain Douglas Jay Falcon, the man who murdered Antony in the Pokémon Center in Blot City of the Souther Region. According to Professor Rowan’s assistants, the man responsible for the kidnapping was dressed in an outfit strongly resembling that of Captain Falcon himself, complete with the helmet. This, combined with the name of Les Falcons Satanique itself, as well as the fact that at least two of their members allegedly piloted F-Zero machines…” the news reporter then continued. Just then, Black narrowed his eyes as his call appeared to have reached the person he was calling.
Meanwhile, Krotenius was still sitting on his throne, with the left side of his face leaning against his left fist like before, and placed on the small desk to his left were five mobile phones.
"GRRAAAAAARRGHHH!!!!!!!!" as the mysterious man was relaxing on his throne amidst the darkness of the room, the excruciatingly painful screams of the people tied to a pole in front of Krotenius, with the exception of Professor Oak, were heard, as the Charizard, Salamence, Garchomp and Hydreigon were slowly eating away their flesh, with one of those dragons each feasting upon one of the four victims! Then suddenly, one of the mobile phones on the desk to Krotenius's left, which was gray in color, began ringing with a catchy ringtone! Professor Oak then gasped as he heard that!
"Hm?" Krotenius then said as he slightly turned his head just enough to look down at the ringing mobile phone with the corner of his left eye, before picking up that phone with his left hand and then looking at its screen, which displayed that the name of the owner of the phone that was currently calling him was "BLACK"! As he did that, some light coming out of the mobile phone's screen shined upon his face, illuminating it just enough to reveal his calm and thoughtful-looking purple eyes!
"Black?" Krotenius then thought, before raising his eyes to look at the Charizard, Salamence, Garchomp and Hydreigon before him, which were still eating their victims' flesh. "Charizard, Salamence, Garchomp, Hydreigon. Please stop for a while." Krotenius then said, and then those four Pokémon all stopped temporarily stopped eating their meals, though the four people's eerie and extremely painful screams still persisted. Then Krotenius looked at the five Les Falcons Satanique Grunts who were standing before him in his throne room and said "Cover their mouths."
"Yes, my lord!" the Grunts then said together in sync, before they each walked up to one of the five people tied to a pole and covered their mouths with their hands, blocking their screams!
"Hello?" Krotenius then said as he placed the gray mobile phone he was holding up to his left ear.
At that moment, back in Sunyshore City's Pokémon Center, Black, who was driven to the edge of despair, said "Gra-Wh-Who is this?!" into his mobile phone.
Back in Krotenius's throne room, Krotenius said "I am a police officer, in possession of Professor Samuel Oak's cellphone, which we found in his home in Blot City after his recent kidnapping. Who may you be?"
"I am Black, Professor Oak's grandson! Where is my grandpa?!" Black then told Krotenius through the phone.
"Black... so he's still alive... meaning Falcon failed to kill him once again?! Hmph... but all's well..." Krotenius then thought to himself while narrowing his eyes slightly and thoughtfully.
"Well, we're currently still investigating. But we believe that you may hold some information that will be vital for our investigation. As such, I would first like to know your current location, Black." Krotenius then said through the phone, and immediately as he mentioned Black's name, Professor Oak suddenly tried to scream, without success though, as his mouth was currently covered.
"I..." Black then began to speak, but then he narrowed his eyes a bit and forcefully stopped himself before he could continue.
"Wait... this could be a trap... Les Falcons Satanique is the group that captured grandpa... and they're also the group that's after me! In retrospect, I shouldn't have even told him my name... if I tell him my location, and he's really not a police officer, but a Les Falcons Satanique member, then..." Black then thought to himself.
"Well?" Krotenius then said calmly.
"Wait!" Black then said.
"Hm?" Krotenius responded.
"First, can you prove that you're really a police officer?" Black then questioned Krotenius suspiciously.
"Heh... well... I guess you're smart." Krotenius then said.
"What?" said Black then, narrowing his eyes a bit in confusion.
"The answer to your question is... no." Krotenius said.
"What?!" Black responded then, sounding a bit frustrated and impatient.
"At this point, I guess there's no use hiding it. Allow me to introduce myself to you then, Black Bobbyborn." Krotenius then said, and then Black widened his eyes and gasped as he heard that! "To be honest, I must say that the fact that you managed to continue surviving even up to this point... is rather commendable." Krotenius continued. Then, at that very moment, some clouds which were previously covering the Sun outside of Krotenius's throne room moved in such a way that they revealed the radiant Sun whose light they had previously blocked! As that happened, the Sun's intense rays shined straight into Krotenius's throne room through a large, colorful window resembling that of a church, located on the wall of the room opposite to Krotenius's throne! As the sunlight entered the throne room, the darkness that previously engulfed most of the room faded away, and the various beings that were currently located in the throne room could be seen as silhouettes no more! From Krotenius's right to his left, the five people who were each tied to a pole in the throne room were: Professor Oak; a slender man with short brown hair, black eyes, and wearing glasses, a white labcoat, a dark green shirt, a black belt, light green pants and brown shoes; a large man with short, dark brown hair, black eyes, a short beard that covered his entire chin, and wearing a white labcoat, a dark blue shirt, a black belt, olive shorts and dark brown shoes; an old man with short, spiky white hair that covered the sides of his face,black eyes, a moustache, and wearing a brown coat, a blue vest, a white undershirt, black pants and brown boots; and a young woman with long and well-groomed light brown hair, green eyes, and wearing two red earrings, a white labcoat, a white tanktop, a short green skirt and red and white shoes. Currently, the three male Les Falcons Satanique Grunts were covering the mouths of the three people to Krotenius's left, while the two female Les Falcons Satanique Grunts were covering the mouths of the two people to Krotenius's right, and all the people tied to the poles, with the exception of Professor Oak, also had blood and bite mark-shaped wounds all over their bodies as well as some parts of their clothes and flesh missing, while a large amount of blood was also rapidly pouring out of their wounds, painting the ground below them red! Also, the sunlight that had entered the room revealed that that the Charizard in the room was shiny, although the other three Pokémon were of their normal color, and the four dragons each had blood and saliva leaking out of their mouths, indicating that they all found the taste of human flesh to be exceedingly delicious!
And addition to that, the sunlight entering the room revealed that the walls, ceiling, pillars and floor of Krotenius's throne room were of a brilliant gold color, with many highly-decorated pots which were white and light blue in color being placed on the ground along the walls of the room, while a long, red carpet led from Krotenius's throne to a large, silver double door with an elegant carving of a Chinese dragon on it, located at the opposite end of the throne room. The sunlight also revealed the appearances of the twelve people remaining people in the room besides Krotenius himself!
The silhoutte of the man with the flat hat was revealed to be a man with pale white skin, wearing a dark blue flat hat, a dark blue blazer with a golden falcon-shaped symbol emblazed on the pocket that was in front of the left side of his blazer's front, a white buttoned-up shirt, a crimson tie, dark blue trousers, a black belt, and black leather shoes, but by far his most bizarre and distinct feature was the fact that his face was completely white, as he had no eyes, ears, mouth or nose whatsoever! The man with earrings had blond hair, a large moustache, golden eyes, tanned skin, golden earings each with a golden falcon-shaped part attached underneath, wearing a pink tanktop with many red "X"s all over it, purple baggy pants with a picture of a bannana at the location above where his crotch was, and light blue slippers, and he also had a rather bored look on his face, and carried a black heavy machinegun behind his back, attached to two brown straps that he wore over his shoulders, and those two straps formed an "X" with each other. The full-figured woman was revealed to have unusually thick lips, dark brown hair, dark brown eyes, dark skin, black shoes, the entirety of her skin-tight suit was bright yellow, her pistols were black and silver, her shotgun was black, and she was also revealed to be wearing a black belt with a golden falcon-shaped belt buckle. This woman also had a rather confident look on her face. The man with glasses was an Asian man with black hair, black eyes, black-framed glasses, and wearing a white labcoat, white trousers, pink and gray sneakers, and he was wearing a brown belt with a golden falcon-shaped belt buckle, as well as three Poké Balls attached to the left side of his belt and three Poké Balls attached to the right side of his belt. He also had had a slight, smug smile on his face. The man standing to the left of the Asian man was a quite tall gentleman with well-groomed brown hair, blood-red eyes, pale white skin, dead gray lips with a pair of vampire fangs visible, and wearing a large and long black cape that was blood-red on the inside and had huge, raised collars at the top, a black shirt with a metallic golden falcon symbol attached just below the neck, black trousers, and a pair of large gray boots with blood-red skull-like designs on them. As the sunlight reached his eyes, this person quietly said "Ugh!" as he immediately closed his eyes and turned his face away from the direction of the light, as if flinching from the very presence of the light itself! And the person to the left of that man was a medium-height and light-skinned teenage boy with a very youthful and feminine face as well as a very slender body, violet eyes, and green eyebrows and long eyelashes, but had extremely long vines instead of hair growing out of his head! The innumerable incredibly long vines that grew out of his head were wrapped extremely tightly around his entire upper body, covering it and serving as a substitute for a shirt, to the point where none of the skin of his upper body could be seen. However, the vines growing out of his head did not cover any part of his body from his upper thighs down, and this, combined with the fact that he was not visibly wearing any sort of clothing or shoes, revealed his slender legs as well as his feet, whose toenails were painted in a bright, shiny violet color. This boy currently had his arms wrapped up in the vines that covering his entire upper body, while he had a happy and playful smile on his face.
The man standing closest to Krotenius's right was a tall man with short brown hair, a moustache and a small beard, and wearing brown robes, a sand-colored shirt and sand-colored pants beneath those robes, as well as a pair of heavy black boots. He also wore a black belt with a golden falcon-shaped belt buckle, three Poké Balls attached to the left side of his belt, three Poké Balls attached to the right side of his belt, and he also had two relatively short, yet sheaths attached to his belt, one on each side, and placed within his two sheaths were two silver-hilted blades. This man currently stood up straight with his arms down his sides and had a serious look on his face.The teenage girl had pink hair, a golden falcon-shaped hair pin on the right side of her hair, large orange eyes, and she had a white top, white sleeves, a red skirt, white socks with a few red stripes at the top, white boots, and her longsword had a white hilt and a red sheath, and this girl had a rather serious look on her face. The old woman standing next to the pink-haired girl had her head covered in a cloth hood with which was decorated entirely with many colorful flower patterns, but some of her gray hair were visible above her old, wrinkled face. She had gray eyes, and was wearing a dark gray shirt, an old white dress, and a golden collar around her left wrist with a golden chain attached to that collar and the other end of the chain attached to a metallic golden falcon-like symbol, The woman was supporting herself on a brown, wooden walking stick, and she had a rather thoughtful look in her old eyes. The man with the mohawk had crimson hair, brown eyes, relatively light skin, blue shorts, red boxing gloves each with a golden falcon-shaped symbol on the back of the palm, as well as white and yellow sneakers, and had a bored look on his face. The gigantic, gorilla-like man had tanned skin, black collars around his wrists which each had six silver spikes coming out of them, and was wearing a dark gray sleeveless shirt with a massive golden falcon-shaped symbol on the back, a pair of golden shorts, and large brown boots, and he also had a perpetual insane evil smile on his face, which revealed his huge white teeth, including his unusually-sharp canine teeth! And finally, the slender woman who had hair covering all four sides of her face, had black hair that was for some reasons wet, dressed in old, dirty, wet and torn white robes, lifeless-looking pale white skin, and dirty hands and feet which were, for some reasons, bleeding and completely lacking of fingernails or toenails.
Now, the only part of the throne room that was still covered in shadows was Krotenius's throne as well as the man currently sitting on it, but as the sunlight entering the room through the window became brighter and brighter, even the aforementioned darkness began to disperse!
"My name is Krotenius Ryuujintensei..." Krotenius then told Black through the phone, and just as he did that, the sunlight entering the room shined upon Krotenius's body, finally revealing his true appearance!
Krotenius was a surprisingly young man of medium height with a youthful face and a rather slender buld, medium-length spiky white hair, a calm and thoughtful look in his pair of purple eyes, and wearing a dark blue hooded jacket with the hood currently down, a white shirt with a golden Chinese dragon at the front, baggy light gray tracksuit pants, and black and blue sneakers, and he also had a sheathed katana placed against the left side of his throne! That katana had a blue hilt with some silver metal covering the bottom of the hilt, an elegant carving of a dragon's head on that silver metal, and a hexagon-shaped guard made of silver metal with four trapezium-shaped holes in the guard surrounding its center, while the katana's sheath was almost entirely blue, with some silver metal at the top of the sheath and an elegant Chinese dragon carved on that silver metal, as well as the Chinese characters "義," "完" and "谐" carved vertically in sand color on the sheath itself, from top to bottom.
"...the leader of Les Falcons Satanique." Krotenius then continued, while having a proud, confident, and slightly excited smile on his face!
"!!" Black then thought as he immediately widened his eyes in extreme shock, fear and surprise upon that revelation! "You bastard! WHERE THE HELL IS MY GRANDPA!" Black then shouted incredibly loudly with insane indignation clear in his voice and eyes, and in the process once more capturing the attention of everyone else in Sunyshore City's Pokémon Center!
"Ssh." Krotenius then said with a smile while placing his right index finger vertically in front of his lips.
"What!" Black then said, sounding irritated.
"Do not raise your voice, Chosen Hero of the Alpha Pokémon." Krotenius then said, and Black gasped as he heard that! "As common sense would tell you... he is currently with us. He is not harmed, and I can allow you to speak with him to confirm." Krotenius continued.
"Get grandpa on the phone! NOW!" Black then screamed angrily. As he heard that, Krotenius smiled as he slowly ascended from his throne, before walking down some stairs in front of his throne, towards Professor Oak.
As he reached Professor Oak, Krotenius put the phone next to the old man's right ear, while the Grunt who was covering the Professor's mouth moved his hand away.
"Black!!" Professor Oak then said loudly with his eyes widened.
"Grandpa! Are you okay, grandpa? Are you hurt? Where are you right now?!" Black then asked, sounding extremely worried.
"I'm alright! I appear to be inside Les Falcons Satanique’s headquarters right now! What about you, Black? Where are you?” Professor Oak then said.
“I... well, let’s say I’m somewhere safe. I can’t tell you exactly where I am right now because Les Falcons Satanique is also after me!” Black answered.
“What?! They’re after you?! Why?!!” Professor Oak then asked with much concern in his voice.
“I... I don’t know either! I...” said Black, but before he could continue, Krotenius took the phone off Professor Oak’s ear, and then Professor Oak gasped as he turned to face Krotenius!
“Because he is one of the two obstacles standing between this world and peace. The other is, of course, the mystery behind the location of the Azure Flute.” Krotenius then said to Professor Oak, before turning around to walk back to his throne, while raising the mobile phone he was holding up to his left ear.
“What are you talking about?! Krotenius... just what are you trying to achieve?!” Professor Oak then said angrily as he looked at the back of Krotenius, who was currently walking away from him, but Krotenius ignored him, and instead clicked his right hand, signalling the Grunt who was covering Professor Oak’s mouth before to cover his mouth again, preventing him from saying anything more!
“Grandpa? GRANDPA!!!!!!!!” Black then shouted through his phone.
“I guess that was enough for you to confirm that he’s safe, right?” Krotenius then said to Black, while still slowly approaching his throne.
“Dammit! Release him, along with all the other Professors you kidnapped!” Black then ordered Krotenius in a strict and completely dead-serious tone!
“I will, under one condition...” said Krotenius, and then Black widened his eyes and gasped as he heard that! “...that you sacrifice yourself in their place.” Krotenius then continued, with a slight smile on his face, whose right side was still enlightened by the sunlight entering the room through the window, while the left side of his face was completely covered in the shadows of the relatively dark room!
“Wh-what do you mean?”
“Isn’t what I just said self-explanatory? You are the chose hero of the Alpha Pokémon, right? Then, how about you ask Arceus itself about the location of the Azure Flute?”
“That’s-That’s impossible! I can’t abuse Arceus’ trust on me to…to assist your evil plots!”
“Well, you should forget your grandfather then.”
“Enough talk. Listen kid, Arceus will not reject anything you ask of it. So, you have 3 hours to do what I said. If you don’t comply --- your grandfather will be sent to oblivion!!”
But Black still couldn’t remove the anger in his head. He screamed into the phone, despite of the connection being cut off, “WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?” “Grrgghh!”, Black again screamed out. He was so enraged the he would have crushed the mobile phone in his hands, but he controlled himself. “Cool down; Calm Mind, Calm Mind…”, he took a deep breath and then finally looked around himself. All the eyes of the people in the Pokémon Center were transfixed upon him. That was somewhat annoying for him. He hastily walked out of the place on to the road. He was going to have taken out his Xtransciever , when suddenly he heard a very manly voicecalled out behind him, “Hey you!” He turned back, and oh, that rough-looking man with blue hair was right behind him. “Hm?”, said Black, knitting his brows in the process. “How do you know Krotenius?”, the man asked. “What?”, Black did not expect a question like this. “Well, you were talking to that person just a few moments ago.”, said the man. “!!!”, Black became even more surprised, “But how did you…” The man did not let Black finish the sentence, “Sorry, I should have introduced myself first. My name is Cyrus, the ex-leader of Team Galactic.” “Team Galactic, that villainous team which was disbanded by some young hero from Sinnoh?”, Black seemed to know much about Team Galactic. “Hm…you are not very wrong,” Cyrus said. “But how have you got to do anything with me? Are you Galactic people back, or are you in alliance with LFS, or what?” ”Krotenius, the present leader of LFS is my brother.”, said Cyrus in a tone similar to a robot’s neutrality. Black gasped; he wanted to say something, but his lips wouldn’t move. Cyrus understood his condition and then said, “I know exactly what you are after and also what Krotenius is after. Listen…”
A young man, about 20 years of age was leaning against a railing. The place where he was standing was high and one could see a beautiful wide-spread landscape in front of it, the skyline of it dressed with some faintly visible mountain peaks. Currently, it was twilight. The golden-orange rays of the setting sun had made the place even more beautiful. The man was staring at this beautifully pleasant scenery with a an expression that could have varied between joy, sadness or surprise. Suddenly, the sound of some steps could be heard coming. The young man turned back and looked at the stairs leading to this lookout, with his arms resting on the railings. Another young man, slightly older than the man standing against the railings, ascended. “Karl! I knew I’d find you here.” The older man said, with a hint of joy in his face, and then turning towards the landscape, he became even more delighted, “No wonder you come here a lot. Unova, in its true glory!” Saying this, the man walked towards the person we now know as Karl. Karl looked towards the man’s eyes and said, “This world, it’s already so beautiful. Cyrus, do we even need to change it.”, Karl said. “Yes, we will and we must recreate the world! Hunger, diseases, death --- are all these things nice?”, Cyrus replied, in a harsh tone. “No, but in order to do that do we really need to destroy everything, even this beautiful twilight?”, Karl’s mind seemed to be lost somewhere else. “Well, you took an oath, along with me, to join our hands and create Team Galaxy, and therefore relieve this world of all its hardships, and ultimately bring peace!”, Cyrus’ voice sounded really bold. “Sorry, elder brother, but I’ve been thinking about this a lot. And I have come to the conclusion that we need not change the world; it is best as it is now. Pokémon and people, living beside each other, and helping each other throughout the path of life --- this is an eternal phenomenon of this world. There is no way we can change this.”, Karl completed in a single breath and then looked up at the sky, on which some stars were already visible. “Very well, then. I did not think you’d be this much of a coward. Stay here, and wait, until the day when the world will be destroyed and then will take birth a new world, a world where peace is everything!!!”, Cyrus said, and then walked down the stairs.
“…And Karl stayed in Aspertia City as a teacher in the Trainer School, whereas I set off for Sinnoh, and gave birth to Team Galactic, instead of Galaxy…”, Cyrus stopped, to take some breath in.
Meanwhile, a man covered with a black robe was travelling through a snowy field. A mild blizzard was blowing through the area. Near the man’s chest, there was a golden falcon symbol printed in the robe. Some cries and sounds could be heard coming from a distance. After walking for some more time, the man could see seven silhouettes, and with their physique could reveal two women and two men, and three Pokémon. He arrived near the people, and could see four LFS grunts commanding three Excadrill to drill through a rocky mountain wall in front. One could have hardly noticed that the man was not alone. In the minimum sunlight reaching that snowy area, one could see the faint image of a Shiny Reshiram behind the man. The man smiled slightly…
Inside the Sunyshore City Pokémon Center, Cyrus was still talking with Black. He was saying, “Things had been like that, until Karl’s mother was taken away from him…One day Karl and his mother were travelling to Virbank City for some reason. In the road, the two fell in front of a vicious battle between Seviper and Zangoose. Wild with the heat of the battle the Seviper bit Karl’s mother with a deadly venom, and she expired when brought to Virbank City’s hospital. Karl valued his mother most in his life, and watching his mother being killed by a Pokémon in front of his own eyes made him pose an eternal hatred towards Pokémon. He thought that the only way of bringing peace to this world was to exterminate all Pokémon in this world. And the best way to do that would be to commit deicide; to kill Arceus, the creator…” Black listened, his nerve almost crossing limits. He could hardly believe what he just heard. But suddenly, some noise was heard coming from inside the Pokémon Center. Cyrus and Black went inside and their eyes were immediately transfixed onto the television screen. According to the news reporter, the peak of Mt. Coronet had been blown away by a destructive explosion. But there was more to it. Cyrus and Black caught a glimpse of the place. Large amounts of smoke were coming out from the flat area on top of the mountain, which used to be the peak of it. But what was more astonishing was that there wasn’t any sky above the mountain any more. There was pitch-black space above the mountain, with stars and galaxies distantly visible. At parts of it, one could notice cracks, the number of which was supposedly increasing. “Spatial Distortions at Mt. Coronet”, flashed across the bottom of the screen. “Oh no! They’ve blown away the link! They’ve blown away the Hall of Origin!” Cyrus muttered. Black seemed to be visibly struck by the chain of events that were happening, first his meeting with this man who claims himself to be Krotenius’ brother, and now this. Cyrus said, “If this is not stopped, our planet’s link with the dimensions of Dialga and Palkia will be lost forever!”, and then turning towards Black, said, “I know you are the chosen hero, and I will make sure we reach there in time” Black stammered and said, “B-but wh-why would you help me?” Cyrus clenched his fists and said, “You know, when my plans of recreating this world were thwarted by that young boy from Twinleaf Town, I was forged forever into a devoid inter-dimensional space, created in the temporary collision of the powers of Dialga and Palkia. I would have remained their forever and died therein, had not Arceus saved me”, he looked up and then again continued, “After that I realized that this world is absolutely perfect. If it has to be relieved of something, that has to be from evil people like me; I know I was a fool to do what I did. And now, I won’t let the same thing happen to my brother; I won’t let Karl do any harm to this world or its creator!” And then…
"Come with me!" Cyrus then said to Black with stress clear in his voice as he left the Pokémon Center, while Black hastily followed the man. As Cyrus came out of the Pokémon Center, he stopped and turned his head upward and rightward to face up at the North-Western sky, where he saw the top of Mt. Coronet, as well as the rip in spacetime that had occurred directly above it! Exiting the Pokémon Center, Black then gasped as he also turned to see the same sight Cyrus was currently looking at, while just about everyone else who were in Sunyshore City had also stopped whatever they were doing and were now facing Mt. Coronet's direction while gasping or screaming in fear at the extremely disturbing sight they were currently beholding! Cyrus then pulled out a Poké Ball from his right pocket with his right hand, enlarged it and said "Crobat, come out!" as he threw that Poké Ball upward and slighty forward, and then that Poké Ball landed on the ground in front of Cyrus and opened up in a bright flash of white light, and then an airborne Crobat emerged from that flash of light with a distinct cry while flapping its wings outward powerfully in an intimidating manner! As soon as Crobat appeared from its Poké Ball, Cyrus hastily walked behind his Pokémon before quickly jumping on its back. Then he looked down at Black, extended his right hand at him and said "Get on! We need to head to Mt. Coronet immediately!"
"Y-Yes!" Black answered with determination, before grabbing Cyrus's hand with his own right hand, and then Cyrus helped him onto Crobat's back.
Meanwhile, amidst the smoke and flame-covered atmosphere atop Mt. Coronet's peak currently stood the man covered in black robes from before, his shiny Reshiram, as well as the four Les Falcons Satanique Grunts and three Excadrill that were with him in the snowy area before. The nine figures were standing still on top of that mountain under the expanding rip in spacetime, and they were all facing North, as if patiently waiting for something. A few seconds passed, and then all of a sudden, the sound of many small flying spaceships could be heard! Almost immediately as that sound was heard, the blue car and spaceship-like machine with a white "07" on it, which was the same machine which Captain Falcon had summoned to escape from the shipwreck earlier, suddenly flew at an insanely high speed towards Mt. Coronet from the West! The blue machine then flew to the top of Mt. Coronet, decelerated quickly, and then came to a stop right in front of the nine figures that were currently standing on top of Mt. Coronet. Just as that happened, another small machine that was a cross between a car and a spaceship flew at an insanely high speed towards Mt. Coronet from the East! This machine was pink instead of blue, had a white "69" instead of a white "07" on it, was slightly bigger than the blue machine, and it was also shaped in such a way that the top and front part of the machine appeared to have a pair of pink rabbit ears protruding from it. Just like the blue machine, the pink machine flew to the top of Mt. Coronet, quickly decelerated, and then stopped in front of the nine figures standing on top of Mt. Coronet. The pink machine also stopped a bit closer to those nine figures than the blue machine, and had stopped closer to the nine figures' left, while the blue machine had stopped closer to the nine figures' right. And immediately after the two aforementioned machines arrived, ten more flying machines that resembled a cross between a car and a spaceship flew from all different directions and stopped at various locations behind the blue and pink machines, from the perspective of the nine figures standing on Mt. Coronet. These ten machines were each of a different color and each had a different number printed in front of it. The clothes of the man in black robes and the four Les Falcons Satanique Grunts who were with him, as well as the fur of the shiny Reshiram were also blowing in some powerful wind that was caused upon the arrival of each of the twelve aforementioned machines, due to the insanely high speed at which they flew. After those ten machines all stopped, the cockpits of the twelve machines all opened up simultaneously, and then Captain Falcon did a front flip and came out of the blue machine's cockpit, Lolila, who had the usual smug smile on her face, climbed out of the pink machine's cockpit, and ten Les Falcons Satanique Grunts - seven male and three female, climbed out of the cockpits of the remaining ten machines, and then the twelve people who had just arrived on top of Mount Coronet briefly looked up at the spacetime rip in the heavens directly aboving them, before focusing their attention on the nine figures that were already there. Captain Falcon and Lolila, the latter of whom had her arms covered inside her trenchcoat like before, then both took several steps towards those nine figures before stopping, and then the man covered in black robes as well as the three Les Falcons Satanique Grunts who were with him kneeled down before Captain Falcon and Lolila.
"Captain Falcon, Vice-Captain Loreleiana." the man covered in black robes then addressed Captain Falcon and Lolila, with the former looking down at the man without any kind of expression visible from his mouth, while Lolila maintained the smug smile on her face. "We have completed everything as Lord Krotenius ordered." said the man in black robes.
"Excellent work, Pabicus!" Lolila then said to the man in black robes, known as Pabicus.
"Now, only one task remains, which is-" Pabicus then said, but before he could finish, Lolila interrupted him.
"To seize Black Bobbyborn as soon as he arrives~!" Lolila then said excitedly with a happy smile on her face!
“So now, if we manage to blast that kid, it will be double success to us! ♫ “, said Lolila. At this, an almost invisible smile appeared on Captain Falcon’s face. He said, “Heh…you are slightly mistaken, madam.” “Madam ? What’s happened to you Falcon?”, Lolila was now surprised. “Well, I bet he’s perfectly OK, isn’t it so Leo?”, Pabicus now spoke up, with a playful hint added to the spoken words. Lolila took a few steps backward, “Wh-what do you mean?” Pabicus now giggled and lifted up his right arm in the air. He then snapped his fingers, making a sharp noise, with which the Reshiram that stood behind him hazed away, as if it were a hologram, and a Zoroark could be seen standing in the place where the shiny Reshiram at the very previous moment. Lolila gasped, and then looked towards Captain Falcon. Falcon smiled obnoxiously and then took off his helmet, with which awaited an even more startling surprise. Upon taking off the helmet, the man standing there couldn’t be identified as Captain Falcon anymore; he had a long stream of cyan-coloured spiky hair, which ended a little below his neck. His eyes were green, with two slender yellow eyeballs, and had a wild look in them. He had spiky moustache that was surprisingly pointed outwards. He let out a fierce cry, “Gwwarrgh!”, and then said, “Hehehe, Miss Lolila, you forgot about the striking similarity of a member of the Element Hunter with the captain.” Lolia acted swiftly with her reflexes and took out two pistol from her belt, held them in both hands and screamed, “Don’t move, Leonardo, or I’ll shoot both of you.” “Wow, quick reflex…”, said the man called Pabicus, and then with an instant movement of his hands, pulled out his robe. This action now revealed Pabicus’ appearance to us. He was a tall and slim young man, slim yet muscular. He had orange eyes and curly orange hair, similar to the orange shade of the setting sun. He wore a sleeveless yellow shirt with red stripes, and wore two bracelets in both wrists which had flame-patterns designed on them. He wore crimson red trousers, with heavy metal boots. He also had a red cape attached to his back, which had the exact symbol of LFS printed on it, with the only exception of two fiery wings drawn on both sides of the falcon emblem. “…but entirely in vain!”, Pabicus completed his sentence. Lolila pressed the triggers of both guns, but the reflexes of the two men proved to be superhuman. The man previously dressed as Captain Falcon, who we now know as Leonardo, jumped up, with the speed and ferocity of a tiger, and then landed on a rock, almost one-third of which had turned black with the ashes of the explosion. On the other hand, before even a single bullet could hit Pabicus, his Zoroark jumped forth, and launched a pith-dark beam of energy towards the incoming stream of bullets. The bullets were showered all around, not being able to withstand the power of the attack, and the beam hit Lolila, causing an explosion, and knocking her away. After the smoke cleared away we could see Lolila lying on the ground, uttering short shouts, which indicated that she was no more in the condition of being able to fight. Both of her pistols lay a few foots apart from her. Now Leonardo, Pabicus, and his Zoroark advanced towards the girl. Leonardo told Pabicus, “Master would be happy with our success.” ”Yeah, the idea to trick the girl with your Zoroark into believing that the master’s Ditto had been captured, as also to hijack Captain Falcon’s jet…” Pabicus replied, but not letting him finish the sentence, Leonardo did so himself, adding something more to it, “… along with the Captain’s armour, and making you dress as that Douglas Jay Falcon --- was a great idea” The two men laughed out.
Meanwhile, one could hear cries coming out of a grand castle located on a rocky terrain. The castle looked like as it had come out of the Middle Ages: except, it was made entirely of steel, rather than stone. It was of a colour that had some resemblance to purplish brown, as also to steel-gray. The castle had four watchtowers, surrounded by high steel walls, and in the center, had a majestic building that had a big golden falcon-head printed near its roof. On both sides of the falcon-head there were green draconic wings. And just below the falcon-head there were two swords crossing each other. All of this seemed to represent some kind of emblem. Inside the castle, we could see Krotenius. He was currently inside a room that was apparently different from his throne-room. But yet, fierce roars of several Pokémon, along with faint cries of people, could be heard from there. He had a worried look in his face. In came a LFS grunt, who, after doing a quick salute to his master said, “Sire, we’re in grave danger. They’ve blown away Mt. Coronet, and Captain Douglas Jay Falcon and Vice-Captain Loreleiana, who were supposedly in the Blue Falcon, and were headed for a mission to Sunyshore City, are missing. Our intelligentsia suspects…” Not letting the man finish his sentence, Krotenius spoke out, with a tone mixed with rage and anxiety, “Drat! I know this is all thanks to that old man…”, and then pausing and thinking for a while, again said, “…OK! Start the engines. The Draco-Auroix is headed for Sinnoh!!”, he finished in a commanding tone. The grunt saluted and then went out. But a smile was yet to be seen in Krotenius’ face…
Meanwhile, in the flat peak of Mt. Coronet, we could see the two men standing in front of the unconscious Lolila, along with a third character and a shiny Venusaur. A closer look revealed that the third person was the Prince of Evil! “Puits fait, Pabicus et Leonardo!”, exclaimed the Prince, “J'ai su que vous deux seriez l'idéal à pouvoir accomplir cette mission.” “Yes, sir”, Leonardo and Pabicus replied at the same time. “We are not like the twelve traitors! Gwwargh”, said Leonardo, with a lot of rage and hatred embedded inside his words. “Oui”, said the Prince of Evil, and then looking towards the shiny Venusaur said, “Heure d'aller, Metamorph.”
At the same time, we could see Black and Cyrus sitting on Cyrus’ Crobat. Suddenly, Black was seized by a terrible headache. He closed his eyes, and instantly saw himself in space, and in front of him: Arceus! The Alpha Pokémon seemed worried. It said to Black, “My chosen hero, you have not extinguished my expectations. And you would have almost been to the end of this adventure…had not something that much unexpected happened to the Hall of Origin”, and then, letting a sigh go out, the Alpha Pokémon continued, “Due to the rips in the space-time fabric of your dimension, I can no longer maintain link with you. Upto this point, I had been watching over of you all the time, but now, that had become impossible. I must again restore the link between the dimensions of DIalga and Palkia, and your dimension. Until then, you must walk on your chosen path alone. Now, the situations have become so, that only the Time Orb and Space Orb aren’t enough, you have to get find the SUN ORB…collect the sp..ova would be your ne… Sun Orb is the la…” And the communication with Arceus seemed to be lost. Black woke to its senses. And then, looking towards the sky, saw the devastated peak of Mt. Coronet nearing. And then…
Black narrowed his eyes and smiled in determination. "I will, my Lord." he then said quietly as he looked up at the heavens.
"What?" Cyrus, who was sitting in front of Black with his back turned to the boy, then said as he turned his head just enough to look down at Black with the corner of his right eye, as the hair and clothes of both Cyrus and Black were currently blowing in the wind, due to the extremely high speed at which the Crobat on which they were riding was flying.
"I... just received a message from Arceus, who had just lost communication with this dimension. He told me to collect two items known as the Space Orb and the Sun Orb." Black said to Cyrus.
"I see..." Cyrus responded as he turned his head to face the front again, as he watched as his Crobat was flying closer and closer towards the top of Mt. Coronet. "If I'm not mistaken, by the "Space Orb,” He must have been referring to what we humans call the “Lustrous Orb”. That is located in the depths of the Snowpoint Temple, situated at the very North of Sinnoh.” he then continued as he looked and pointed his right index finger to his right, at a very snowy area at the North of the island over which the Crobat currently ridden by Black and Cyrus was flying, while Black turned his head to his right to look at that area.
“I know... Arceus told me about that earlier... do you have any idea where the Sun Orb may be? It seems that Arceus couldn’t tell me in time before He lost contact with this world...” Black then said as he turned to face Cyrus, who had lowered his right arm by now.
“I don’t, unfortunately.” Cyrus replied, and then Black lowered his head a bit in disappointment as he heard that. “Back when I was still searching for a method to create a new world without spirit, I along with the rest of Team Galactic pored over countless myths surrounding numerous regions on this Earth, and exposed their secrets. But not once have I ever come across the term “Sun Orb,” or anything remotely reminiscent of it...”
“I see... that’s OK. I’ll find the Sun Orb myself somehow!” said Black.
“Chosen Hero of Arceus... come to think of it, I still don’t know your name...” Cyrus then said as he once again turned to look at Black with the corner of his right eye.
“Oh right! My name’s Black! Black Bobbyborn!” Black answered Cyrus then.
“Black Bobbyborn... I see...” Cyrus then said as he turned to face his front again. “As important as your journey to collect the Orbs may be... preventing the complete separation of this world from the temporal and spatial dimensions takes priority right now!” he then continued.
“Yes!” Black responded enthusiastically.
At that time, Cyrus’s Crobat, along with the two people currently riding on its back, had just arrived at the top of Mt. Coronet. Crobat then hovered slightly above the ground on top of the gigantic mountain.
“We’re there!” Black then said as he hastily jumped off Crobat’s back and looked up at the disturbing spacetime rip that was currently directly above his head!
“Wait!” Cyrus, who was still riding on Crobat’s back, then turned and said to Black.
"Huh?" said Black as he turned to face Cyrus, looking confused.
"We're not quite at our destination yet." Cyrus answered.
"What do you mean?" asked Black, raising his arms a bit.
"Get back on my Crobat. I'll explain." Cyrus then said, and then Black started walking back towards Cyrus and his Crobat. As Black did that, Cyrus began looking around at his immediate surroundings, with a confused look in his eyes.
“This is strange... why is Les Falcons Satanique nowhere to be seen?” Cyrus then wondered. Just then, he heard a familiar young woman’s voice calling out to him!
“Master Cyrus!” said the voice, and then Cyrus and Black, who had yet to reach Cyrus's Crobat, both turned to look at the direction from which the voice came, and then they saw three people standing at that direction, facing the two of them!
The person who was standing to the left from Cyrus and Black’s perspective was a short and slender young woman with medium-length and strangely-styled red hair that had three points, confident-looking red eyes, had a happy smile on her face, and was wearing a bright red, sleeveless split dress that had two thin shoulder straps, revealed her right leg and had numerous golden butterfly symbols on it, and this woman also wore black high heels and had a black collar around her neck. She was currently standing, facing Cyrus while having her right hand on the right side of her waist and her left arm hanging down. Standing to the right of this young woman was a considerably taller, but also slender man with short blue hair, an extremely bizarre hairstyle that resembled a bowl cut with hair shaped like a pair of cat ears at the top of the head, cat-like blue eyes, and wearing a black-striped white shirt, blue jeans, and black and orange sneakers. This man had a rather confident smile on his face, and was currently standing with his legs folded, his left hand behind his back, and he currently had his right elbow bent, his right forearm and right index finger pointing upward, and he was spinning a Poké Ball at the tip of that finger. And finally, to the right of the blue-haired man stood another slender young woman, albeit slightly older, taller and bustier than the red-haired one. She had medium-length purple hair tied up in an egg-shaped bun at the top of her head, and had another rounder bun at the back, and she had sharp-looking purple eyes, red lipsticks on her mouth, and was wearing a sleeveless split dress that was identical to the one worn by the red-haired woman, except it was purple instead of red, had silver moth symbols on them instead of golden butterfly symbols, and the split dress revealed her left leg instead of her right leg. Like the red-haired woman, the purple-haired woman also wore black high heels, but she did not have a black collar around her neck, but instead, had two black collars around her exposed upper left thigh, and she was standing, facing Cyrus and Black with her arms folded.
“Mars!” Cyrus then said as he looked at the red-haired woman, known as Mars. “Saturn!” he continued as he looked at the blue-haired man, known as Saturn. “Jupiter!” he then said as he looked at the purple-haired woman, known as Jupiter.
“It’s nostalgic to think that we’re reuniting up here of all places!” Jupiter then said to Cyrus.
“I guess...” Cyrus replied, lowering his head a bit thoughtfully.
“You guys are...” Black then said, narrowing his eyes at the three people standing before him.
“They were my subordinates. The former Commanders of Team Galactic.” Cyrus then said.
“Oh...” Black then said as he looked at Cyrus.
“Heh? So this is Arceus’s Chosen Hero?” Mars then said, with her voice confirming that she was the same who had called out to Cyrus before, as she placed both of her hands on her waists, and with a curious smile on her face, she walked up to Black and placed her face up close to his to analyze him.
“Uhh?!!” Black then said, looking shocked upon witnessing the invasion of his personal space as he leaned back nervously.
“What’s your name, boy?” Mars then asked Black as she leaned forward more, making Black even more nervous as he leaned back even more, while sweat began to run down his face.
“M-My name is Black Bobbyborn.” Black replied as quickly as he could, as he struggled to breathe with Mars’s face right in front of him.
“Black Bobbyborn! I see, I see! I’m Mars! Nice to meet you!” Mars then said as she closed her eyes and smiled.
“Uhh... Ehh... Y-Yeah... N-Nice to meet you...” Black replied.
“This is no time for formalities. Black, you need to get the Edge of Existence right away!” Saturn, who was standing behind Mars and quite far away from her, then said as he continued spinning the Poké Ball on his right index finger, and as he ended his second sentence, he thrusted his right index finger upward slightly, propelling the Poké Ball that was spinning on it upward slightly, and then as that Poké Ball fell back down, the blue-haired man caught it with a swift and skillful movement of his right hand.
Upon hearing that, Mars finally removed herself from Black’s personal space and turned to face Saturn, while Black also gained a more serious look on his face as he also looked at Saturn.
“The Edge of Existence?” Black then asked.
“Ah, yes. I forgot to explain it to you.” Cyrus then said, and then Black turned to face him. “Actually, I should explain it to you as we head there. Get back on!"
"Alright!" said Black as he jumped back onto the back of Cyrus's Crobat.
Cyrus then turned to face Mars, Saturn and Jupiter, and then he said to them "I have no idea why Les Falcons Satanique is currently nowhere to be seen. But just in case they show up here again, I'll have you three guard the entrance to the Distortion World anyway, as planned!"
“Yes sir!” Mars, Saturn and Jupiter then said to Cyrus together, and then Cyrus's Crobat, carrying both Cyrus and Black on its back, flew skyward, straight towards the spacetime rip that was directly above Mt. Coronet!
"Wow, wow, wow! Hey! Where are you taking me?!" Black then screamed in fear and confusion, as he found himself plunging head-first into the rip in spacetime that currently sat above the heavens!
Meanwhile, somewhere amidst the snowy area to the North of Mt. Coronet stood a large, three-storey mansion, whose walls were made of wood painted in an olive color, and whose roof was orange in color. This mansion was surrounded by an olive-colored wooden fence, with a wooden gate located on the fence directly in front of the mansion's entrance, which was a large double door, with a stairway leading up to it from the front. The mansion also had two chimneys and numerous windows along the walls on all sides, and light could also be seen coming out of the windows at the mansion's bottom floor. This mansion was currently enduring a heavy blizzard that blew across the snowy area. Just then, the Prince of Evil, the shiny Venusaur, Pabicus, Leonardo, and the thirteen Les Falcons Satanique Grunts who were with them at the top of Mt. Coronet before could be seen walking along the snowy ground in front of the mansion, approaching the mansion itself. The shiny Venusaur also had its two vines wrapped tightly around the body of the unconscious Lolila, and it was carrying the girl above its head with those vines.
Inside the bottom floor of that mansion, there was a very large hall with a very high white ceiling, from which hung a beautiful and absolutely gigantic crystal chandelier with seven candle-shaped crystals at its edges, and this chandelier was currently lit, with its brilliant light enlightening the entire hall. The walls of this hall were of a natural brown color, with many green leaf-like patterns designed on them, while the ground was made of wood with a natural brown color. On one end of the hall were some stairs that led to a slightly elevated area, on which stood a massive, cube-shaped white stone, on top of which there were two statues of mechanical-looking beings made of the same white stone. At the front of the cube-shaped stone's top stood the statue of a huge and magnificent-looking robotic bird, whose appearance was a cross between that of a falcon and a Chinese phoenix, with its head, beak shape and talons resembling that of the former, while its wings, the feathers on its wings, the crest on its head, and its tailfeathers resembled that of the latter, although with that said, the bird's crest, as well as each and every feather on its body did not look natural at all, but instead looked artificial, mechanical, and like they were made of metal, in this way strongly contributing to its robotic-looking appearance. The statue of this robotic-looking falcon and phoenix hybrid was standing in a pose in which it had its mechanical phoenix wings spread out in an awe-inspiring manner, while its head was raised up high, giving it a very proud and regal appearance, and its feet were standing just at the edge of the front of the large cube-shaped stone. And standing right behind the statue of this bird was a much larger statue, which completely dwarfed the bird statue in size. This was a statue of a huge dragon-like machine which had sharp teeth, an evil smile on its obviously-robotic-looking face, two horns at the sides of its head, which were pointing forward, a big horn at the front of its head, had a drill for its right hand, a sharp three-fingered claw for its left hand, had strong mechanical-looking legs with skulls on its knees, a tail with a cannon attached to the end of it and two huge cannons attached to a base on its back. This dragon-like machine also had rings at the base of each of its horns, and it was standing in a position in which its knees and arms were slightly bent, its right arm drill and left claw pointing forward, its upper body leaning forward, and the twin cannons on its back were pointing diagonally downward at the ground behind it. And located on the wall directly behind and above the statue of the dragon-like machine was a black poster with a golden falcon symbol on it, with that golden falcon symbol having fiery wings.
The large, golden italic words "Les Falcon Renégats" could also be seen printed on the top of the front of the cube-shaped stone on which the two aforementioned statues were standing, and right beneath those golden italic words were some smaller words carved on the cube-shaped stone, which read "PokéGod Toujours". And right beneath and in front of those words stood a blocky white throne made of stone, which was currently occupied, and located right in front of the cube-shaped stone itself. There was a long, blue carpet that connected from that throne all the way to a large, wooden double door located at the opposite side of the hall.
At the center of the long blue carpet that ran across the center of the room was a large, metallic, and thick cylinder-shaped golden pole. A tall, fit and extremely muscular man with short brown hair and brown eyes, who was currently dressed in absolutely nothing except for a pair of white underwears was currently on his knees with his back against the golden pole in the room, and he had large, heavy and golden handcuffs around both of his wrists, and those golden handcuffs were in turn attached to some extremely long and thick golden chains wrapped unbelievably tightly around the golden pole itself. The man was also tied to the pole in such a way that he was facing the unoccupied throne in the room.
"Hoot! Tat! Tuwok! Turt! Woouugh! Uuuuuwwooorrgghh! Come on! TERARRGH! YESZ!" the brown-haired man tied to the pole then screamed loudly in exactly Captain Falcon's voice, confirming his identity as Captain Falcon himself, as he struggled against the chains to which he was bound, by flexing his muscles, moving his arms and legs around violently, and even surrounding his entire body with a powerful fiery aura, but regardless of what he attempted, he could not escape, as the handcuffs, chains and the pole to which he was tied were way too strong even for himself. "Falcon..." Captain Falcon then said as he clenched his right fist hard while charging some insanely powerful fiery energy in it! "PAUNCH!" he then screamed as he pulled his right fist forward, trying to break the handcuff and chains attached to his right arm! As he did that, Captain Falcon created a great fiery explosion at his right fist, but after the explosion faded away, the handcuff and chains attached to his right fist remained completely undamaged by his efforts to escape! "Turt... YYEEEEEAAAHHHHH!!!!" Captain Falcon then screamed loudly as he simulateneously flexed every single muscle in his body while radiating a very powerful fiery aura from his body! The flames coming out of Captain Falcon's body quickly engulfed all the chains and the entire golden pole to which he was bound, quickly heating them up to very high temperatures as they were made of metal, but after a few seconds, the fiery aura surrounded Captain Falcon's body faded away, and then the Captain relaxed his muscles, closed his eyes and started breathing heavily and tiredly. "Oooh nooo..." he then said, looking exhausted after many hard, but unsuccessful efforts to break away from the chains.
While that was happening, a large number of Les Falcons Satanique Grunts could be seen standing on either sides of the blue carpet that ran across the center of the hall, and they were all facing the golden pole to which Captain Falcon was currently tied, apathetically watching the Captain's futile efforts to break away from those chains. And in addition to the many Les Falcons Satanique Grunts currently in this place, there were also five other people. One of them was a short and fat middle-aged man with orange hair as well as a very strange hairstyle, which, combined with the color of his hair, made his hair shaped like and resembling a pair of outstretched wings of a fiery phoenix. This man also had small black eyes, an unusually large and round noise as well as unusually large ears resembling those of an elephant, and was wearing a pair of small and round glasses, a dark green suit with a golden falcon symbol that had a pair of blazing wings on it emblazed on the pocket of his suit where his left pectoral muscle was, a red tie, dark green trousers, and dark brown shoes, and he was standing to the right of the blocky white throne in the room, with his hands behind his back, and apathetically facing the pole to which Captain Falcon was tied while listening to his screams. Another one of the five aforementioned people was a mysterious, slender person of medium height, who was dressed in a black ninja uniform, including a cloth mask that completely covered their forehead, their nose, and everything beneath the nose, such that the only part of that person's face that could be seen were their red eyes. This person carried a pair of black-sheathed and dark blue-hilted wakizashi behind their back, with both blades slanted in such a way that they formed an "X," and this person currently had their back leaning against a wall in the hall, behind a large crowd of Les Falcons Satanique Grunts. This ninja-like person was also currently holding, looking at, and pressing some buttons on a black mobile phone with a thin chain attached to it, and a metallic golden falcon symbol-like trinket with a pair of blazing wings attached to the other end of the chain. Another person who was currently in the hall was a short, slender teenage girl with long brown hair, innocent-looking large blue eyes, had two small horizontal oval-shaped pink marks on her cheeks, and wearing a white cloth with a golden falcon symbol that had fiery wings on it on top of her head, a purple collar around her neck with two thin purple ribbons attached to that collar and coming down her back, a sleeveless and strapless top which was entirely purple, except for the breasts, which were white, and the bottom of her top also ended in an elegant-looking white skirt. She also had a pair of large, baggy white sleeves that were not attached to her top, with such sleeves being purple at the wrists, and she wore short white socks, and soft brown boots. This girl also had a purple strap tied around either of her thighs, and there was a light blue pistol case attached to both of those purple straps, on the sides of her thighs. This girl was standing to the left of the unoccupied throne in the hall, with her left arm down the left side of her body, her right arm behind her back, and her right hand grabbing onto the elbow of her left arm, while her back was also leaning against the wall behind her. Another person currently in the room was a very short, delicate and slender boy with a youthful, handsome and feminine face with long, orange hair, large blue eyes, a very loose light blue shirt with sleeves large enough relative to the boy himself that they completely covered his hands, baggy white pants, yellow boots, and a golden necklace which was mostly covered under his shirt and was therefore barely visible. This boy was currently sitting with his legs crossed on the blue carpet some distance in front of Captain Falcon, he had his head lowered, as if in deep thought. And finally, the other remaining person in the room was a tall person who was dressed in such a way that he strongly resembled a clown. His hair was brushed back and dyed in a bright, purple color, his face was painted predominately white, his nose was painted in a bright red color, while a huge, bright red evil smile was painted over his mouth, each of his eyes were surrounded by some light blue pant in the shape of semi-circles, with the flat end of such semi-circles facing downward, he had a pink spiralling line on each of his cheeks, and finally, he had a golden falcon symbol with red blazing wings painted on his forehead. The clown wore blue overalls, a yellow shirt beneath said overalls, a pair of pink gloves, and wore blood-red boots. He also carried a massive chainsaw with a red handle behind his back. The clown was currently standing right in front of Captain Falcon, looking down at him with a taunting smile on his face.
After breathing heavily for a few seconds, Captain Falcon suddenly regained his concentration, opened his eyes and screamed "TUWOK!!!" as he clenched both of his fists and flailed his muscular arms around while once again surrounding his body with some fiery energy, but he still did not have any success breaking out of those chains. After a few seconds, the fiery aura around his body faded away, and then the Captain calmed down again.
"HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" the purple-haired clown, who was still standing right in front of Captain Falcon laughed extremely loudly with his head raised while thumping his chest with his right hand and hopping comically on one foot for a bit, before putting his hands behind his back while leaning forward, such that his paint-covered face was now extremely close to that of Captain Falcon's. "What's-a-matter, "Captain"? Are you getting a little... Falcon Exhausted?" the clown then taunted the Captain right in his face, while having a sadistic smile on his own face, but Captain Falcon did not respond, or even raise his head to look at the clown for that matter. "Huh?" the clown then said tauntingly as he quickly and lightly slapped the left side of Captain Falcon's face with his right hand twice.
Immediately as he felt that, Captain Falcon immediately shouted "Falcon..." as he opened his eyes, looked the clown in his eyes, clenched his right fist and charged some powerful fiery energy in it, and then the clown widened his eyes and gasped as he saw that! "PAUNCH!" he then continued as he violently pulled his right fist forward, creaating a powerful fiery explosion at his right fist! The handcuff and chains around his right arm were still undamaged by that explosion, however the explosion was enough to startle the clown!
"Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, WOW!!! Easy!" the clown then said as he comically hopped backwards on his feet away a few steps away from Captain Falcon while pointing his palms at him, as if pleading him to cease his violence. "If you break that thing, Lord François is gonna get real mad!" the clown then continued.
As the clown was talking, Captain Falcon had his head lowered, but then he slowly raised his head to reveal an extremely furious look in his eyes at the clown! "Show me ya moves." Captain Falcon then said to the clown in a very arrogant, defiant, fearless and challenging tone, despite the fact that the Captain himself was currently in no position to fight as he was bound by chains to a pole!
Seeming impressed by the Captain's strong dignity and reckless courage, the clown raised his head and smirked sadistically at Captain Falcon, and then he laughed "Hahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!" evily, while grabbing the chainsaw on his back with his right hand. "Well, well... you asked for it then, "Captain"!" the clown then said in a quiet, raspy and evil voice, as he pulled the chainsaw over his right shoulder, grabbed its handle with both hands, and then got into a fighting stance in which he had his left foot forward, his left knee bent, his right foot back, his right leg straight and at about 70 degrees to the horizontal, and both hands holding his chainsaw, which he currently held to the right side of its body, with the blade pointing behind him, and the clown now had an evil, sadistic smile on his face! Everyone in the room then gasped as they saw that, and the clown was just about to turn on his chainsaw and charge at the Captain, when suddenly, the short and fat orange-haired man in the room spoke.
"That's enough, Claudaus." the short and fat orange-haired man then said, his words in a very strong French accent, to the clown, known as Claudaus.
"Uh?" Claudaus then said as he ceased his smile and turned his head just enough to look at the orange-haired man with the corner of his right eye.
"Lord François is about to return to us after three years of absence... do you really intend to show him such embarassing behavior as a first-impression?" the orange-haired man then calmly said in a strong French accent to Claudaus.
"Embarassing behavior?" Claudaus then said, as he got out of his fighting pose, lowered his chainsaw, and stood up straight, while turning around to face the orange-haired man. "Ahahahahahaha! Hahah! Hahaha! Hooha! Hooha! Aha, aha!" Claudaus then laughed mockingly. After he stopped laughing, he thrusted his face forward at the orange-haired man's direction, displayed a sarcastic smile on his face and said "Umm, Vice-Captain Fiyah... are you... perhaps... serious?" as the orange-haired man, whose surname was Fiyah, looked at him with an expressionless and apathetic face. "Are you... forgetting... that he..." Claudaus then said, as he pointed his left thumb over his left shoulder at Captain Falcon behind him as he reached the end of that line. "...is the right-hand man of the guy... who usurped Lord François's leadership of Les Falcons Satanique three years ago and imprisoned him at the bottom of his headquarters?" he then continued. "Do you... really think... that Lord François... cares about a guy like him?" Claudaus then said.
Just as Claudaus said that, everyone suddenly heard the Prince of Evil's voice coming from the entrance into the hall!
"En effet, je me soucie de lui." the Prince of Evil's voice was heard.
The double door leading into the hall opened, and the Prince of Evil, the shiny Venusaur which was still carrying the unconscious Lolila with its vines, Pabicus, Leonardo, and the thirteen Les Falcons Satanique Grunts who were with them entered the hall.
"Eeeehh?!" the brown-haired girl then said excitedly, with excitement also clear in her widened eyes as she clasped her hands together and looked at the Prince of Evil. At the same time, the orange-haired boy, who was still sitting on the ground, also turned to look at the Prince of Evil with the corner of his left eye, and the ninja-like person did the same with the corner of their right eye. Claudaus, who was previously facing Fiyah, also turned around to look at the Prince of Evil, while Fiyah now also focused his attention on that man.
"Accueillir de nouveau à nous, Seigneur François." Fiyah then said as he immediately kneeled before the Prince of Evil, whose name was François, and as he did that, everyone else in the hall who had not entered it together with François also kneeled to him, and Claudaus put his chainsaw behind his back again before kneeling.
At the same time, Cyrus's Crobat, which was still carrying Cyrus and Black on its back, was flying at a very high speed amidst an extremely strange and eerie location. Cyrus, Black, and his Crobat were now flying through a place filled with countless floating islands of various shapes and sizes, which were brown at the top and a supernatural-looking blue color at the bottom, and they were all floating within an unbelievably vast, blue space, in which some spiral-shaped clouds could be seen in the distance. Some of the floating islands had trees, boulders and ponds of water on them, but there were two extremely strange things about these islands, besides the fact that they could float. The first was that the trees located on some of these islands seemed to constantly and randomly appear and reappear at various locations on the island, and the second was that the floating islands, including the trees, boulders and ponds of water on them were all slanted at different angles, and yet the trees, boulders and ponds of water were somehow still kept in place on the surface of these floating islands, as if the direction of gravity was different for each and every one of those islands! This, combined with the fact that many rocks and platforms of varying shapes and sizes were also constantly floating back and forth, or even in random directions across the space in which Cyrus, Black and his Crobat currently found themselves, made it evident that the laws of Physics apparently did not apply to this place, as even things such as waterfalls that flowed upward could be observed in this place!
"Wh-Where are we?" asked Black nervously as he looked around at the extremely bizarre environment that currently surrounded him.
"We are in the Distortion World, the world to which the Renegade Pokémon, Giratina was banished by Arceus." Cyrus answered, as his Crobat flew at a very high speed through a narrow gap between two floating islands whose surfaces were perpendicular to the direction at which Cyrus's Crobat was currently flying, and then Black closed his eyes and flinched at that moment, in fear of himself crashing into one of those floating islands! After Crobat passed through the gap between those two islands, Black reopened his eyes, widened them and gasped. "This is also the dimension in which I was trapped after my plan to create a new world without spirit was thwarted... as well as the dimension in which the Edge of Existence is located." Cyrus continued, and Black gasped again as he heard that! "As I know the Distortion World better than anyone else, I will personally guide you to the Edge of Existence's location!" Cyrus then continued, as his Crobat started flying upward, approaching a large, floating island that appeared to be upside down from the perspective of Black, Cyrus, and his Crobat. As Crobat came close to that island, it suddenly flipped its body sideways 180 degrees, such that it was currently upside down relative to its previous position!
"Wow!" Black then said as that happened. Since Crobat had flipped its body 180 degrees, the floating island it was approaching was now no longer upside down relative to it. Crobat then flew at a very low altitude relative to the island that was now directly beneath it, and soon, it started flying over a large lake located in the middle of the island it was flying over. Crobat flew at a very high speed and a very low altitude over the surface of the lake, creating some powerful ripples on the lake's surface due to the wind radiating from its body, as it approached what appeared to be a wormhole floating somewhere on top of the lake near its center! "Arrrgh!!" Black then screamed and closed his eyes, as Cyrus's Crobat flew straight into the wormhole at a very high speed, but then Black quickly reopened his eyes upon realizing that flying into that wormhole merely took him to a different location within the Distortion World. Cyrus's Crobat, which was still carrying its trainer and Black on its back, immediately came out of a different wormhole in the Distortion World, which was located very high up above an absolutely massive floating island. Aside from being much larger in size compared to all the other floating islands seen in the Distortion World so far, many absolutely gigantic palm trees also grew out of this island, with each of those palm trees being about as tall as Mt. Coronet itself!
"Wow, awesome!" Black then commented as he beheld the great scenery that surrounded him. As Cyrus's Crobat flew high above the massive island on which such enormous palm trees stood, it also gradually lowered its altitude. After watching the scenery for a while, Black then looked at Cyrus in front of him and said "This place sure looks weird!"
"Indeed. It is a world in which time does not flow, and space is not stable. Everything you may have learned about Physics in our dimension does not apply here." said Cyrus.
"I see. Are there any Pokémon or any other beings in this world, besides Giratina?" asked Black curiously.
"Not that I'm aware of." said Cyrus.
"So... you were going to explain about the Edge of Existence, right?" Black then asked.
“Right." Cyrus replied. "There is only one item that possesses the power to stop the dimensions of Dialga, Palkia and Arceus from drifting away from our world even further. That item... is the Edge of Existence, a legendary sword of immense power, capable of cleaving the very fabrics of spacetime itself. It is the very blade used by Arceus Himself in the very Beginning in His Omnipotent Forme, in order to connect the Hall of Origin as well as the dimensions of space, time, and anti-matter to our world. It is all because of the Edge of Existence which is why the aforementioned dimensions have remained attached to our world for the past 4.6 billion years, and thus allowing it to even exist in the first place. As such, you could call the Edge of Existence... the very lynchpin of all existence in the universe itself.” Cyrus then continued, as Black listened to him carefully.
“I see...” Black then said, as he tried his best to take in what he was hearing.
“When Arceus first created the world, He used the power of the Edge of Existence to to bring about an inter-dimensional force akin to gravity, for the purpose of keeping the Hall of Origin, the temporal dimension, the spatial dimension, the Distortion World, and our world eternally connected together. Such an inter-dimensional force would have normally forever served its purpose... but Arceus did not ever consider the possibility of that inter-dimensional force being interfered with. I have no idea how Les Falcons Satanique managed to do it, but clearly, they have somehow managed to create an interdimensional force of their own... stronger in magnitude, and opposite in direction to that which Arceus created in the Beginning. This is how they managed to disconnect the Hall of Origin as well as the spatial and temporal dimensions from ours. However, the Distortion World is connected to our world in a way that is slightly different to the way the Hall of Origin, the temporal dimension and the spatial dimension are, so the link between that world and ours isn’t lost as of yet. The Edge of Existence was specifically made so that only Arceus and those blessed with His powers can wield it, which is why we need you, Black, to seek and use the legendary blade itself!” Cyrus then continued explaining the situation to Black.
"I understand! So where exactly is the Edge of Existence located in this world anyway?" asked Black.
"Even at the speed at which we are currently travelling, we won't be reaching it for a while..." replied Cyrus.
"Oh, wow. I guess the Distortion World is huge after all..." said Black, as he started looking at the scenery surrounding him again.
"It is exactly as vast as the entirety of the dimension in which we live." said Cyrus.
"Wow..." said Black.
Just then, Black, Cyrus and his Crobat all noticed a large shadow covering them, and then Black and Cyrus both gasped as they looked up and saw Giratina, in its Origin Forme, floating in the air above and in front of them, looking down at them aggressively!
"Tch!" Cyrus then said in frustration, and then...
“BAMM!” Dragging Black by the collar, Cyrus managed to fling himself and Black behind a large, sturdy rock in the nick of time, missing Giratina’s Dragon Tail attack by an inch or two, which left a humongous crevasse on the ground the duo were standing on a moment ago.
“What is going on? Why is Giratina attacking us out of the blue?!” Black yelled in terror, as Giratina seemingly warped away and resurfaced, glaring ominously above them. As though Cyrus had been bracing himself for this question the whole time, he replied stoically “It’s all my fault…. A few years back, I myself was also following the same path as Krotenius. I sought world domination by attempting to control Dialga and Palkia by the means of a special Red Chain I created. In the process, I got embroiled into a conflict against Giratina as well in this very Distortion World. Giratina must have remembered me…. and still thinks that I am once again attempting to subjugate it. Since you are with me, Giratina must have saw you as an enemy as well.” “Well, what do we do now? We are going to get killed at this rate!” Black hollered, as Giratina swung back its tail. “Run for now!” Cyrus gasped. Both of them ran as fast as their legs could carry them, with Giratina hovering behind in hot pursuit. Black felt a tugging sensation on his waist area, as though an additional weight was being inserted there. "Just in case..." Cyrus whispered.
“Why are you here, Cyrus? Trying to get revenge once more for me breaking that beloved Chain of yours?” The eerie voice of the hunter echoed throughout the Distortion World. “Come and try it!” With that, the Renegade Pokemon teleported itself in front of Cyrus and launched another Dragon Tail attack.
“Gyraaaa!” Cyrus's Gyarados cried in pain as it took the brunt of the Dragon Tail, crashing on the ground and writhing in agony. “I’m so sorry Gyarados! Are you ok?” Black exclaimed as he caught up with Cyrus. “Thanks, kid, you really saved me there.” Cyrus gasped, “For a second there I thought I was a goner.”
“As I expected, such arrogance! Using your own Pokemon as a shield! My intuition was right, like Cyrus, you treat Pokemon as mere pawns! Pawns that you will sacrifice just to save your own sorry hides! You pitiful excuse for a trainer!” An incensed Giratina bellowed. “This time, I’ll finally get to punish Cyrus for all he has done, and you are next!”.
Giratina raised its head and leaned back its body with its mouth wide open, as it charged a powerful sphere of dark energy before its mouth, before thrusting its head forward at Cyrus's direction while shooting the sphere of dark energy straight at him!
"!!" Cyrus then thought with his eyes widened as he watched the sphere of dark energy flying towards him, before he quickly dived to his left to avoid the attack! Through that action, Cyrus managed to avoid being hit directly by Giratina's Shadow Ball attack, but after hitting the part of the ground on which Cyrus had been standing before, the Shadow Ball blew up in a huge explosion of dark energy which created a massive crater in the ground, while also catching Cyrus within its range! "UAAARRRGHHHH!!!" Cyrus then screamed in excruciating pain as he was sent flying a great distance by the explosion of dark energy, while a massive amount of blood spouted out of his badly-wounded body in the process! "Ughh!!!" Cyrus then said as he landed face-first on the ground and slid for a few meters before stopping, while he left a thick trail of blood on the part of the ground on which he slid!
"CYRUS!!!" Black then shouted with concern clear in his voice and facial expression as he turned to face Cyrus's direction.
"Never mind me!" Cyrus then raised his head to look at Black and shouted, and then Black widened his eyes and gasped as he heard that! Then Cyrus turned to face his Crobat and said "Crobat, escort Black to the Edge of Existence! Hurry!!"
"But you..." Black then said as he looked at Cyrus.
"Go! The fate of the world depends on you!" Cyrus then said as he turned to face Black again. "Me and the rest of my Pokémon will hold off Giratina! You need to get the Edge of Existence as soon as possible and at all costs, including my life!" he then continued, as with much pain and effort, he pulled out a Poké Ball from his right pocket with his right hand, enlarged it by pressing a button on it, and then he faced Giratina's direction and said "Go, Honchkrow!" as he threw the Poké Ball towards its direction! The Poké Ball then landed on the ground between Cyrus and Giratina and opened up in a bright flash of energy, out of which emerged a Honchkrow, which flapped its wings a few times and let out a distinct cry as it appeared standing on the ground.
"You are here to claim the Edge of Existence?" Giratina then said as it looked at Black, who looked at Giratina and clenched both of his fists while narrowing his eyes a bit as he heard that. "You couldn't be..." Giratina then continued with a tone of surprise in its voice, as it looked at Black carefully! Then...

"He is the Chosen Hero of Arceus!" Cyrus said then, causing Giratina to become surprised!
Meanwhile, back in Krotenius' throne room, Krotenius had now returned there and was sitting on his throne. The twelve people standing in two parallel lines of six people each were also still standing there, as were the five people tied to some poles between them, the five grunts behind them, and the Charizard, Salamence, Garchomp and Hydreigon who were eating them earlier.
"Alright, I took care of that matter. Now, about the reason I called you here..." Krotenius said then, addressing the twelve people standing in two parallel lines in the room. Then suddenly, Krotenius looked at the large, colorful window opposite of his throne, and noticed the shadow of what seemed like a bird. The shadow then kept getting bigger and bigger on the window, as if it was approaching, and then it soon turned out to be huge, revealing it to be no ordinary bird! "What?" Krotenius said as he saw that, and then suddenly, the gigantic bird that was approaching the window eventually smashed through it, flying brilliantly into the room amidst a hail of countless multicolored pieces of glass from the window it smashed through! Then everyone in the room gasped loudly and braced themselves and looked at the gigantic bird that had suddenly burst into the room, which resembled a cross between a phoenix and a falcon! However, there was actually something extremely unusual about it: it did not resemble an ordinary living being of Earth, but rather, it looked like a machine, being made of metal! The falcon and phoenix-like machine then flew straight towards the five people tied to poles in the room, effortlessly sweeping away Charizard, the three Dragon-type Pokemon and the five grunts there with its huge wings and then landing and shielding the five tied people with his wings!
"You?! Impossible!" Krotenius said then, as he looked at the falcon and phoenix-like machine, which also looked exactly the same as the statue in the mansion where Captain Falcon was currently held! "How are you alive? Farukonix!! " he continued, as he looked at the falcon and phoenix-like machine, known as Farukonix, which he seemed to know somehow!
Meanwhile, Farukonix used his sharp, metallix feathers to cut the five tied people free of their bonds. Then, he spread some ash over them, which rapidly healed the wounds inflicted on them by the four Dragon-type Pokemon earlier! "Whoa! T-Thank you! Who are you?" one of the rescued people, who was wearing shorts and a blue shirt under a labcoat, said then. "I am with the Prince of Evil. My name... is Farukonix!" Farukonix introduced himself to the five people then, and ended his sentence by rising up and spreading his wings elegantly and imposingly! "Go now, you are free! Run forth, and tell everyone you meet... that the coming of the revelation of the Truth is nigh!" Farukonix continued in a loud voice, as he directed the five people towards some stairs in the back of the room from which they could escape. "Farukonix, is it? Thank you! We will!" the only woman among the rescued people said then, before they all started running towards the exit!
"Don't let them get away! Stop them!" Krotenius yelled then. "Yes sir!" one of the five Les Falcons Satanique Grunts said then, and then all five grunts started chasing after the released captives! The five grunts then ran past Farukonix, chasing after their targets!
"Not so fast!" Farukonix said then, as he turned his head to look at them, while opening his mouth and charging a huge amount of dark energy in it! Then he fired a huge beam of dark energy at the five Les Falcons Satanique Grunts, crashing amidst them and causing a huge dark explosion! "GRAAAAAAARRRGHHHHH!!!!!" the five grunts screamed then as they got disintegrated within the gigantic blast before Krotenius' eyes, who grinded his teeth in anger as he watched the five people that Farukonix released safely escaping through the stairs in the back of the room! Meanwhile, after disintegrating the grunts, Farukonix then turned his head back and faced towards Krotenius and the rest of the people and Pokemon left in the room!
"Hello, Krotenius" Farukonix said then, as he looked at Krotenius. "Long time no see. How's it going? How's that betrayal working out for you?" he continued, in a calm, even happy voice!
"Farukonix..." Krotenius said then, looking at Farukonix with evident hate on his eyes. "Is it really you? But how? How are you back... after I sent you to Hell?" he then continued, looking at Farukonix suspiciously.
"What's the surprise for, Krotenius? I was under the impression that you humans were already acquainted with the powers possessed by phoenixes..." Farukonix said then, and then Krotenius slightly widened his eyes in shock as he heard that! "And besides... It's not like I can't go back and forth to my own home if so I wish!" the massive falcon and phoenix-like machine continued, as he spread open his wings magnificently, stunning Krotenius even more for a moment!
"I see. So, I take it you're here for revenge, aren't you?" Krotenius said then.
"Hm, hm, hm" Farukonix laughed then, as he licked his beak bloodthirstily while his eyes were going over everyone in the room!
"Foolish machine! What makes you think this will be any different than last time?!" Krotenius shouted then, as he suddenly stood up from his throne in anger, and then he suddenly started radiating an insane amount of spirit energy from his body! The spirit energy that Krotenius radiated then immediately filled the room and created a suppressing, suffocating atmosphere in it, which was at its highest intensity around Farukonix!
"Hm, hm, hm" Farukonix continued laughing then, as he too started radiating some dark energy out of his body! His dark energy then engulfed him completely, and started absorbing the spirit energy around him that was radiated by Krotenius, while also completely nullifying its suppressing and suffocating effects, resulting in Farukonix being able to move completely freely and unaffected by his opponent's energy! "What?" Krotenius said then as he saw that, widening his eyes! "Hah!" Farukonix said then in a loud voice, as he blasted a wave of dark energy from his body, which spread across the room and knocked everyone away, before moving towards Krotenius! Krotenius the braced himself with his arms, before being hit by the wave of dark energy, getting knocked back onto his throne and toppling it over along with him, cancelling his spirit energy radiation! Krotenius' throne fell over and slid back on the floor a bit, with Krotenius himself also falling even further behind his throne and also sliding along the floor, until he was stopped by his head smashing onto the room's wall!
"Ugh... Lord Krotenius!" the man with the crimson mohawk said then, as he looked towards Krotenius, who was currently lying on the floor. Meanwhile, Charizard, Salamence, Garchomp and Hydreigon also all became agitated by the sight of Krotenius lying injured on the floor, with a small pool of blood spreading his cracked head after he powerfully smashed against the wall! Upon seeing that, the four Pokemon then turned towards Farukonix with their fangs bared, roaring threateningly at him! Then Charizard took an extremely deep breath, before using Fire Blast against Farukonix, while Salamence blasted a Hyper Beam, Garchomp used Earthquake, and Hydreigon used Draco Meteor! Then Farukonix, for some reason, spread open his wings pridefully, as if to expose himself completely open to attack! Then Charizard's Fire Blast crashed straight to his front, exploding into a giant ball of flame, while Garchomp's Earthquake cracked the floor under his feet and sent some incredibly powerful and catastrophic shockwaves through his body, which also destroyed everything around him such as the walls and other things in the room, then Salamence's Hyper Beam also crashed on him as well in another huge explosion rivalling Charizard's Fire Blast, and then finally, Hydreigon's catastrophic Draco Meteor crashed through the ceiling above Farukonix, completely destroying it, before crashing straight onto Farukonix himself, blasting him straight through the floor within a huge explosion! Farukonix was blasted down to a lower level within the building, leaving in his former position nothing but a huge cloud of dust! The ceiling above Farukonix, as well as the floor that used to be below his feet, now had two gigantic holes on them, which had been caused by Hydreigon's Draco Meteor falling through, while the walls around Farukonix' location were also badly cracked and nearly crumbling, as a result of Garchomp's Earthquake. There was also a huge, circular ring of flames surrounding the hole on the floor through which Farukonix had fallen. Then as the dust started to settle down, Farukonix suddenly flew up through the hole on the floor! Everyone gasped as they saw him, and then Farukonix spread out his wings in the air magnificently, blowing away the dust around him, and revealing him to be completely unharmed after taking the full brunt of all those incredibly catastrophic attacks before! Everyone then widened their eyes as they saw that, while Farukonix had a big, arrogant smile on him, as he looked down at Charizard, Salamence, Garchomp and Hydreigon provocatively! The four Pokemon then became even more infuriated than before, and then suddenly, all of them started to get surrounded by some insanely powerful energies, which were disintegrating things around them! Then, the four Pokemon suddenly all kicked off the floor, destroying it, and then they flew and dived straight towards Farukonix at huge speeds, in a burst of Outrage! "Hmhmhmhmhm!" Farukonix laughed excitedly then, fearlessly watching as the four dragon-like Pokemon approached him rapidly and catastrophically! Then suddenly, Farukonix flapped his wings powerfully, flying upwards and avoiding all four of his attackers in the last moment, who then all zipped past him and kept flying away, flying in the sky outside the building! Then after flying up, Farukonix leaned himself forwards and turned upside down, such that he was now facing his four opponents in the sky outside the building! "Hyper Darkness Beam!" Farukonix said then, as he charged much dark energy in his beak, before firing an unbelievably gigantic beam of dark energy straight towards the four dragon-like Pokemon! The beam then crashed straight onto them, resulting in an unbelievably gigantic and catastrophic explosion of darkness, which instantly consumed all four Pokemon in it, immediately disintegrating every last fiber of their beings! The explosion was so insanely powerful that it rumbled and shook the whole building that Krotenius and the others were in, and then, with the explosion still in the background, Farukonix laughed and flipped himself forwards and got back to a normal position again (from the upside down stance he was before), before descending and landing back inside the building at the forward edge of the huge hole on the ground through which he had fallen through before, standing there with his wings spread open magnificently for a bit while the ground was still shaking! Eventually then, he closed his wings, while the earthquake stopped shortly afterwards, leaving behind an aftermath of nothingness, with his four opponents completely erased! As they saw that, many of those who were left in the room, excluding some like Krotenius, then gasped loudly and widened their eyes!
"Incredible! Such power...! But then again, I guess I should expect as much from a machine!" the Asian man with the labcoat said then, as he nervously fixed his glasses with his hand!
"Piece 'a shit... Think you're so cool, showing off and all? Die!" the man with the pink, "X"-filled tanktop said then, as he pulled out his black machinegun and aimed it at Farukonix!
"Xexexex, don't!" the woman with the yellow skin-tight suit yelled at the man then, revealing his name as Xexexex!
"Aaaaahh!" Xexexex shouted then, as he opened fire with his machinegun against Farukonix, unleashing a hail of incredibly powerful bullets towards him! However, the bullets then all harmlessly ricocheted off the huge metallic bird's body, without even scathing him! After bouncing off, the bullets were then flying everywhere around the room, with many of them even flying dangerously close to people in Krotenius' group themselves!
"Stop it, you idiot! Don't you see it's useless? You'll kill us all at this rate!" the woman in the yellow suit angrily shouted at Xexexex then.
"Shut up, bitch! I'll just keep firing 'till that thing drops dead!" Xexexex said then, as he ignored the woman and kept firing his weapon!
"Oh, you don't need to worry about that" Farukonix said then calmly amidst being shot, as he looked at the woman in the yellow suit.
"Huh?" the woman said then, as she looked at Farukonix.
"After all, whether by his bullets or by me... YOU'RE ALL GOING TO DIE HERE ANYWAY!!" Farukonix said then, as he suddenly widened his eyes and raised his voice insanely in the second half of his sentence, while suddenly spreading out his wings towards the group, shooting out countless razor-sharp, incredibly hard metallic feathers towards their direction! The very first of those feathers sliced open Xexexex' throat, killing him instantly, and then the rest flew among the rest of the characters and shredded them up badly as well, scattering their blood all over on the floor and walls! As he saw their blood, Farukonix then suddenly started to look even more insane than before!
"HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!" Farukonix laughed insanely, as he flapped his wings, taking off from the ground! Then he eyed the man in the labcoat, before diving straight at him! "Huh?" the man in the labcoat said then upon witnessing the massive bird-like machine diving straight at him, but before he could do a thing, Farukonix swooped down and grabbed him with both his talons, before flying off into the air with him! "Gwaaaaahhh!!" the man in the labcoat screamed then, as he desperately tried to push himself out of Farukonix' insanely strong grip, but to no avail! "Heng Wai!" the woman in the yellow suit said then as she saw that, while kneeling and having her left hand placed on top of a huge slash on her right arm, caused by one of Farukonix' metal feathers from before! "Ughhh!! Looks like you got me, machine! But you could never hope to harm me! You see, I am no ordinary person like the rest of them down there! I am a cyborg, a machine just like you! So don't think defeating me will be so easssssszzzzz--" Heng Wai said then, but while he was finishing his sentence, Farukonix spread apart his talons, with which he was holding Heng Wai, easily tearing him in two! As he did that, it was revealed that underneath his human skin, Heng Wai was in fact a machine, which had just now been broken in two by Farukonix, revealing cables, machine liquids and machine parts instead of flesh and blood! "Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz" a buzzing, static robotic sound then continued coming out of Heng Wai's mouth, while Farukonix opened his talons and dropped the two pieces of him, which fell and smashed into the ground, and then his upper body exploded, scattering shrapnel all over the place!
"HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!" Farukonix then continued laughing, as he took a U-turn in the air and then aimed for the boy that had vines instead of hair, before breathing out a massive stream of black flames at him! The boy was then immediately engulfed by the flames, and screamed "Aaaaaaahhhhhhhh!!!!", as he started getting burned to ashes! "Floroko! No!" the woman in the yellow suit screamed as she saw that, revealing the burning boy's name as Floroko! Floroko then ran around crying loudly in panic and excruciation, and tried rolling on the ground to put out the flames, but it was useless! Before the horrified eyes and ears of the woman in the yellow suit, the vine-haired boy was soon reduced to nothing but a pile of ashes on the floor! While all that was happening, Farukonix was flying in the sky laughing loudly and insanely in delight! Then, he swooped down at the slender woman with the pale, lifeless-looking skin, landing on top of her and throwing her down, such that Farukonix' talons were now stepping on the woman's outstretched arms on the floor, with the woman facing up! Then, Farukonix thrust his beak into the unreactive woman's chest and stomach, before ripping out her insides and scattering them all in the air, washing his head with her blood! "NOOOOO!!!! GHOULIETTA!!!" a feminine voice screamed loudly in despair then, revealing the name of the pale woman as Ghoulietta!
"HAHAHA!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!" Farukonix laughed ecstatically then, as he suddenly turned his head up to face the sky and laughed loudly, revealing his blood-filled beak and face, and also his completely insane-looking eyes, which by now had turned red for some reason! Then everyone gasped, except for the gorilla-like person with the huge arms, who charged at Farukonix while he was still standing over his freshly killed victim and laughing, trying to punch him! The gorilla-like man then unleashed an insanely powerful punch on Farukonix, and then upon connecting it, a huge explosion of blood happened! "GWAAAAAAAHHHH!!!" the gorilla-like person screamed then, as he pulled back his fist, which had been horribly shredded after punching the razor-sharp, blade-like feathers on Farukonix, with three of his fingers falling off and Farukonix himself remaining completely unharmed, with just a large bloodstain left on his left wing! As all that happened, Farukonix did not even react to the gorilla-like man's actions, continuing to look at the sky and laughing insanely with his completely red, insane-looking eyes! Then suddenly, with his eyes still red, Farukonix turned his head towards Krotenius and said "WHAT'S THE MATTER, KROTENIUS?!? IF YOU KEEP LYING THERE, ALL OF YOUR SUBORDINATES WILL BE KILLED!! WELL, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?! COME AND SAVE YOUR MEN, KROTENIUS!! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!".
"Ugh..." Krotenius said then, as he slowly recovered and picked himself up from the ground. Then he looked at his men, and slightly widened his eyes upon observing the corpses of Xexexex, Heng Wai, Floroko and Ghoulietta, which consisted of 1/3 of his force, as well as the badly injured states of everyone else, filled with wounds from the blade-like feathers that Farukonix had thrown at them earlier! "What?! What happened?!" Krotenius said then in a distraught voice! "HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!" Farukonix laughed then as he suddenly spread out his wings, in the process unintentionally slicing off the left arm of the gorillla-like man who was standing nearby, who screamed loudly in pain as that happened, before Farukonix then flapped his wings and took to the air! Then he flew up a bit, facing Krotenius, before suddenly swooping down at him in huge speed! "Ugh!!" Krotenius said then, as he pointed his index finger at Farukonix, before firing a ray of some incredibly powerful and compressed spirit energy at him! However, Farukonix then dived straight through the beam, dispersing it effortlessly with his beak, and then within a flash he reached Krotenius and landed on him, slamming him back-first against the floor, with his talons pressing against Krotenius' outstretched arms, like he did to Ghoulietta before! "Ughhhh!!" Krotenius said as that happened, and then he tried radiating some powerful spirit energy from his body in an effort to repel Farukonix away! However, some dark energy then appeared on Farukonix' talons, and that dark energy then started absorbing all of the spirit energy that Krotenius was radiating, nullifying its effects completely! "W-What?!" Krotenius said as that happened, widening his eyes extremely in shock and disbelief! "HAHAHAHAHA!!!! GO ON, OOZE OUT THIS DELICIOUS NECTAR!!!! YOUR SPIRIT ENERGY IS MY NOURISHMENT!!!" Farukonix said then, as he stood over his hapless victim while draining out his energy!
"I-Impossible!! This isn't... ANYTHING LIKE I REMEMBER OF YOU AT ALL!! HOW CAN YOU BE THIS MUCH STRONGER THAN BEFORE?!" Krotenius shouted to Farukonix in an extremely loud, desperate voice!
"HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!" Farukonix laughed, before suddenly plunging his beak onto Krotenius' left shoulder, and then brutally ripping off his entire left arm and throwing it into the air!
"GRAAAAHHH!!" Krotenius screamed in pain as that happened, while drops of his blood fell on his face and on Farukonix!
"WHEN THE LUST IS ON ME, THE BLOOD SCATTERS FREELY!! I COULD NOT FIGHT WHEN FRANCOIS WAS AROUND BEFORE, AS EVEN HE MIGHT NOT HAVE BEEN SAFE!! BUT GUESS WHAT?! UNLIKE LAST TIME, FRANCOIS IS NOT ANYWHERE NEAR THIS PLACE NOW!!" Farukonix then said in a loud voice, while watching Krotenius' arm flying into the air, with his blood spraying into the atmosphere and falling like a rain on Farukonix and Krotenius!
"Ugh!!! So that was it?! You couldn't go all out... because you were worried about harming Francois?" Krotenius said then.
"AND ALSO, BECAUSE HE'S A HUMAN!! I DID NOT WANT HIM TO BECOME TRAUMATIZED... BY THE SIGHT OF THE MESS I'M ABOUT TO CREATE HERE!!" Farukonix said loudly then, before suddenly plunging his beak into Krotenius' chest!
"UUUUURRRGGHHHHHHWWWWWWAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!" Krotenius screamed extremely loudly in excruciation then as that happened!
Meanwhile, back at where Francois was, Francois was currently walking in the hall along with the shiny Venusaur carrying Lolila, Pabicus, Leonardo, and the 13 grunts. Francois walked ahead, with the Shiny Venusaur behind him and the others following them. Francois kept walking forwards, until he was about to walk past Claudaus. At that point, he stopped, and looked down at the kneeling, chainsaw-wielding clown.
"Je laisse cela à vous" Francois said, and then, the shiny Venusaur carrying the unconscious Lolila with its vines then lowered her to the ground, placing her in front of Claudaus. When he saw that, Claudaus smiled and widened his eyes a bit in excitement and delight!
"Thank you, Lord Francois!" Claudaus said then. Then, Francois kept walking forwards, while Claudaus stood up and pulled out his chainsaw! Claudaus then started up his chainsaw, and then, he started laughing hysterically while cutting Lolila's body into sections, messily scattering her blood all over the place, filling his whole face and the front of his clothes with blood! Meanwhile, Francois walked a bit more, until he reached the restrained Captain Falcon, in front of whom he then stopped, and looked him in the eyes...
In the meantime, back at where Farukonix was, there was now blood scattered everywhere. The floor, the walls, even the ceiling were filled with random, chaotically spread stains of blood, as well as pieces of flesh, organs, bones, and other remains spread around the room where Farukonix was fighting the others before. Currently, Farukonix appeared to be the only one left standing amidst a sea of corpses, which he was currently looking at from the location where Krotenius' throne formerly stood. He was currently smiling in satisfaction, and was seemingly now in a bit calmer state than before, with his eyes returned to their normal color.
"Ah" Farukonix said, as he took in the smell of blood in the atmosphere. "The spectacle of a fresh massacre. It's a truly beautiful thing, isn't it?" he continued, as he smiled. "How unfortunate that Krotenius left before leaving his own touch on the scene. However, in his condition, I'm sure his corpse will soon be decorating another place" Farukonix then continued his apparent monologue. "Anyway, it is such a shame that humans can not appreciate this kind of beauty. I would have loved to share this feeling with Francois. We machines are truly blessed among existence to be able to appreciate the joy of slaughter" Farukonix continued speaking, further adding to his seeming monologue. "Am I not right... Mutenshi?" Farukonix said then, as he looked towards a pitch-dark corner of the room, in whose shadows a single, mysterious figure was left standing alone out of all the people originally in the room!
At the same time, elsewhere, far, far away from there, there was an extremely top place on top of a mountain. In that place, there were two stone tablets with what seemed to be a set of rules or guidelines written on them. The sky was currently extremely dark and cloudly, raining heavily, so one would expect no one to be outside in this weather. However, a single man was approaching the two stone tablets. It was Krotenius! Soaked in his own blood and the rainwater, Krotenius was slowly stumbling towards the stone tablets, holding his chest, which had a huge cavity on it, with his right hand, which was his only arm left, and emitting some spirit energy from his hand which slowly, but ineffectively, was healing the wound on his chest, although for the moment all it had done was stop the bleeding and barely heal a few vital parts, narrowly keeping Krotenius in life! Krotenius was also breathing heavily, limping from his seemingly broken left leg, and generally seemed to be insanely worn out and exhausted! Struggling to go on, Krotenius eventually reached the stone tablets, and then, he looked up towards the heavens!
"Lord Ryuumaru!!" Krotenius shouted towards the heavens then! However, nothing happened.
"Lord Ryuumaru!!!" Krotenius shouted again, this time even louder than before! Then suddenly, a mighty thunder roared in the sky, and then, the skies split open, revealing a huge, floating comet made of some dense purple energy! Just then, a huge wind accompanied the appearance of the comet, blowing Krotenius' hair and clothes wildly, and many purple lightning bolts were also seen constantly being fired off the comet, seemingly reaching into the Earth across a huge area! Then suddenly, a mysterious voice spoke from the purple comet, resounding through the heavens!
"Krotenius..." the mysterious voice said then.
"Lord Ryuumaru!" Krotenius said, addressing the source of the voice as Ryuumaru. "Please answer me!" he continued.
"..." Ryuumaru waited to listen to what Krotenius would say.
"A machine, known as Farukonix, who I had disposed of in the past... returned with powers far greater than what he formerly seemed to possess. And I, who possess such power that even Arceus would seem like a flea in comparison... myself seemed like a flea compared to that machine! O Lord Ryuumaru, you who are aware of the workings of the heavens, please tell me! Who was that machine, who was able to overwhelm even I, who, in your own words, possesses such power that even Arceus is nothing more than a flea compared to me? Was it someone very high up the hierarchy of our enemies?" Krotenius said then, looking towards the heavens! Then the heavens roared for a bit, before Ryuumaru's voice finally responded to Krotenius!
"The machine you battled against... to my understanding, is nothing more than a middle-rank machine from Chaos Planet" Ryuumaru answered then.
"Huh?" Krotenius said then, with a surprised look on his face! "Then why? Why did I lose to him? Are the average beings of Chaos Planet... stronger than Arceus himself?!" he continued, looking extremely anxious and confused!
"That is not the case either" said Ryuumaru.
"Huh?" Krotenius said then.
"The reason you lost was not because because your opponent was stronger than Arceus... but because he was stronger than you" Ryuumaru continued, causing Krotenius to gasp a bit, and look even more confused than before!
"Huh? I don't understand... If I am stronger than Arceus... and my opponent was not stronger than Arceus... then shouldn't I be more powerful than them?" Krotenius asserted then.
"Indeed, that would have been the case... had it been true that you were stronger than Arceus" Ryuumaru said then, causing Krotenius to widen his eyes a bit in surprise!
"What? But... didn't you say that you gave me power far greater than that of Arceus?" Krotenius said then.
"I did" Ryuumaru replied.
"Huh?" Krotenius said then, looking confused.
"The reason you lost was not because you lacked the power to defeat Arceus... but because you lacked the ability to use that power" Ryuumaru said then.
"Wh-What? What do you mean?" Krotenius said then, unable to understand.
"The nature of my spirit energy... is one that can shine at its strongest when the soul making use of it stands firmly on the side of Justice. Because your soul is impure... you failed to bring forth the full potential of the power I gave you" Ryuumaru explained then, and Krotenius gasped as he heard that!
"If that's the case then...! Then why did you give me your power in the first place?! And why did you lead me to a false impression about the level of my strength, if you knew it wouldn't be anywhere near that?!" Krotenius said then, sounding very upset!
"Krotenius. Originally, what I saw in you was a soul who could potentially stand on the side of Justice" Ryuumaru said then. "However... back then, I did not expect to see the day when that very same soul would be torturing innocent people to make ends meet... and enjoying themselves at that" Ryuumaru said then, causing Krotenius to gasp in shock!
"B-But Lord Ryuumaru! It was the only way to get the information needed about the Azure Flute! S-Surely even you must acknowledge... that sometimes, the ends justify the means, right?" Krotenius said desperately then, attempting to justify his actions.
"Indeed. However, in your case, Krotenius... you have proven that you are a bit too eager to act on that belief. Had you searched more, I am sure you would have found alternate ways to get to the Azure Flute" Ryuumaru said then.
"!!!" Krotenius gasped as he heard that.
"The retrieval of the Azure Flute by means such as the ones you employed is not what I desire. Krotenius... Your usefulness to me has ended" Ryuumaru said then, and then, the heavens started roaring loudly and frighteningly above Krotenius, while the strong winds started to blow him harshly!
"Wait!! Lord Ryuumaru, please! I have been nothing but loyal and true to you!" Krotenius said then, begging for forgiveness, as his hair and clothes were blowing extremely wildly in the winds!
"You have been true to me, Krotenius" Ryuumaru replied to Krotenius then. "But the truth isn't what I'm interested in" he concluded, before suddenly, an unbelievably gigantic pillar made of purple energy and electricity descended from the purple comet in the sky, crashing straight onto Krotenius!
"GRWWWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!" Krotenius screamed then, as he got disintegrated to particles within the insane, catastrophic power of the pillar of thick, electrified purple energy! Krotenius vanished to nothingness, and then, the purple comet disappeared from sight as the sky closed again, returning everything back to normal.

Elsewhere, Francois was looking at Captain Falcon, who was chained on a pole. Initially, Captain Falcon was looking down and avoiding eye contact, but Francois insisted on looking at Captain Falcon intently in the eyes. Then eventually, Captain Falcon raised his eyes, and him and Francois looked at each other. As that happened, Francois moved closer to Captain Falcon, until he could feel his breath on his face! Captain Falcon looked a bit uncomfortable, when suddenly, Francois embraced Captain Falcon and french kissed him in the mouth! Captain Falcon initially widened his eyes, then blushed a bit and half-closed his watery eyes, and then eventually, Captain Falcon let go, closed his eyes and passionately started returning Francois' affections!
"W-What?!" Fiyah said as he saw that, widening his eyes in surprise! Everyone else in the hall also had the similar reactions of surprise and shock!
"L-Lord Francois? What are you doing?" Leonardo said then as he looked at Francois's actions with extreme surprise and disbelief!
"Huh? I-Is that what Lord Francois meant when he said "je me soucie de lui"?" a Les Falcons Satanique grunt said then, looking startled and confused!
Francois and Captain Falcon ignored everyone, as they passionately continued their long, affectionate exchange. Then eventually, after about a minute of tenderly making out with each other, they stopped to take a breath.
"Captain Falcon... You are such a wonderful man" Francois said then. Then sudenly, he widened his eyes, as did everyone else in the hall when they heard him talk!
"Lord Francois! Your speech!" Pabicus said then. "It's no longer in French!" he continued in amazement! Then, Francois took a few moments to realize take in was going on, and then he suddenly looked at Captain Falcon!
"Captain Falcon... The curse has been lifted! You are the one! You are the Prince I had been waiting for!" Francois said jubilantly as he looked at Captain Falcon!
"Francois... You too! My own curse has been lifted as well! I can finally speak in full coherent phrases!" Captain Falcon said then, and then everyone gasped loudly as they heard him speak like a normal human for the first time!
"Captain Falcon and Lord Francois are speaking like us!" a Les Falcons Satanique grunt said then.
"Let's get you off these chains..." Francois said then, as he grabbed the key to Captain Falcon's restraints and used it to release him from his bonds, though not without taking the opportunity to feel his muscles while freeing him. After Captain Falcon was freed, him and Francois then looked each other naughtily in the eyes again, and then they giggled, before they started kissing each other in the mouth while passionately groping and fondling each other!
"Mon amour, voulez-vous coucher avec moi?" Francois said then, as he started slowly taking Captain Falcon's scarf off, but then Captain Falcon gently stopped him by softly grabbing his arm with his hand.
"Not here... I can't while I'm being watched..." Captain Falcon said then. Then, Captain Falcon started walking towards a door. "KAM AWN!" he said then, and then Francois followed him inside a room somewhere in the hall, and then they closed the door behind them.
"Show me ya moves!" Captain Falcon said then. Then, a minute of awkward silence followed for the people waiting in the hall outside the room. "Hoot! Tat! Tuwok! Turt! Woouugh! Uuuuuwwooorrgghh! Come on! TERARRGH! YESZ!" Captain Falcon was then heard shouting, while Francois was also heard screaming and moaning! "Oooh! Je t' aime, Captain Phallucon!" Francois was heard saying. As they were hearing all that, everyone outside the room in the hall gasped and widened their eyes!
"W-What are Lord Francois and Captain Falcon doing in there?" a Les Falcons Satanique said then uneasily.
"Tat! Tuwok! Turt! Woouugh! Woouugh! Uuuuuwwooorrgghh! HYESZ! HYESZ! FARUKON... KURIMAKUSU!!!!!" Captain Falcon said then, and then suddenly the room with him and Francois in it exploded! The huge explosion then expanded all across the hall, killing everyone outside the room!
After that, Captain Falcon and Francois rode off into the sunset in each other's arms, and eventually they even united in marriage, with Farukonix as the best man. Francois disbanded his organization and left that life behind, in exchange for a new life next to his romantic partner. While Captain Falcon changed his outfit to a pink and white one. And then, they lived happily ever after!
Meanwhile, Black, Cyrus and Giratina were in the Distortion World. Then suddenly, a dimensional portal opened in the air, and Arceus flew out of it!
"Arceus!" Black said with surprise.
"Hello, Black. I just came to tell you that the position of a Chosen Hero in this world is no longer required. As of now, I relieve you of your duties" Arceus said then, and as they heard that, Black, Cyrus and Giratina were all surprised!
"W-What? But why?" Black said, sounding disappointed.
"Both Les Falcons Satanique and Les Falcons Renegats have been dismantled. Since the Chosen Hero's role was to stop both of those organizations, that means that role is over now" Arceus said then.
"What? Wait, when did I-" Black said then.
"You don't get it, do you? Things have resolved on their own. It's over, Black" Arceus said then.
"B-But I wanted to be the Chosen Hero! I wanted to fulfill my destiny!" Black complained then.
"Sorry, kid. But you can be an ordinary hero now. Let's go..." Arceus said then, as a light radiated from his body. The light covered everything, and then Black found himself back on Earth somewhere. Upon looking around, it seemed like he was on the route to Viridian Forest from Viridian City.
"Oh man... I wanted to be the Chosen Hero!" Black said then in disappointment. "Well, guess it's back to collecting Gym Badges now. Or maybe I can just take that secret path straight to Lance's room, and become the Champion right away!" he continued, and became a bit cheered up by his thoughts. Then suddenly, Black looked and saw a familiar person. It was the trainer in gray clothes that he had encountered in a Pokemon Center near the beginning of his journey! Although he had seen him getting seemingly killed before his eyes, the man was walking alive and completely fine before his eyes now!
"Y-You! It's you?!" Black said then.
"Hm?" the trainer in gray said then as he looked at Black.
"You're the guy who was murdered in the Pokemon Center!" Black said then.
"I was? That's news to me" the man in gray said then.
"B-But I saw it! Captain Falcon was there, and he killed you! How are you alive?" Black said then.
"One does not simply kill the Psychic Pokemon Master, my friend" the man in gray said then, as he smiled.
"What?" Black said then.
"Come to think of it, I remember you. We had a Pokemon battle where I swept your team with my Hypno, right?" the man in gray said then.
"Gh! That wouldn't happen again if we battled now!" Black said then.
"Is that so? Why don't we find out?" the man in gray said then.
"Alright!" Black said then. "Go, Bagon!" he continued, as he tossed a Poke Ball and sent out his Bagon.
"Go, Hypno" the man in gray said then, as he also tossed a Poke Ball, sending out his Hypno. Then he looked at Black and said "Say, did we introduce ourselves to each other before? I do not seem to recall your name...".
"I'm Black! Black Bobbyborn!" Black said then.
"Ah. Pleased to make your acquaintance, Black. I am Antony" the man in gray, known as Antony said then.
Thus the battle began! Then...
