    Welcome to the city of Nance, the birthplace and origin of the world’s best heroes, and their worst villains. Constantly flooded with crime of normal measures, and sometimes large schemes, it seems like in this day and age simply everything is changing. Lab accidents, scientific discoveries- at this point it seems like almost anything is possible and everything has some sort of explanation.

    Almost anything was possible in that city. That in which seemed like supernatural abilities, always resulting in some sort of lab and scientific tragedy or discovery. No, in fact, that of actual supernatural abilities and spirits were deemed illogical. Divinity simply had no place in today's society!

    The forces of evil seemed to have always had the upper-hand, however. Villains run high-end corporations, or somehow end up starting up a mini-version of the Purge. In retrospect, it’s hard to believe anyone would have faith in a city constantly having something wrong with it- the days that it doesn’t are hardly taken for granted. Villain against hero, it’s a cliche battle that always comes out with some sort of odd victory and a horrible defeat. That being said, the heroes would never simply give up. No, in fact, it’s rare to see them not posing some sort of threat to those who do nothing but down right dirty deeds.

    “Ah, yes, why am I bringing this up? Well, it isn’t easy to admit something like this- but our city is having a little… problem. You see, we’ve been keeping a little secret. At one point, the world did in fact have spirits.” Now, who would've thought a government official would come to not only a bunch of heroes, but villains as well?

    “The catch is, if you don’t do this, you won’t have a world to torment or dominate much longer.”

    “The catch? You’ll have to put differences aside and work with the enemy on this one.”

    Government officials? In a crime-ridden city like Nance? It was hard to believe, but it was definitely happening. Villains and heroes were being forced to work together in order to solve a hush-hushed breach of 'security', whether they liked it or not. In the end, they might very well have something hanging over their very own head, or maybe even a promise of something from the Nation's United Government.

    Whatever it was, it motivated them to meet within a day's time.

    The world of Pokemon is a vast one, where humans and Pokemon are the closest as can be since the last evil force that cursed them in order for a more "beautiful" world. What was that team again... Flare? Ah, yes! It was! Team Flare. And before them? Team Plasma. The oldest of the old? Team Rocket.

    All these evil organizations have become rather renown in the world of today. All except one.

    It was always watching though. From every incident with Legendary Pokemon until now, they were watching. Improving on ideas used to capture these beautiful creatures. Such as the three legendary birds, Zapdos, Moltres, Articuno... And even Celebi, when turned evil. All of this, something greater than Arceus. An artificial being created to help them rule the world. To make a new world order elsewhere.

    It doesn't matter how much blood or destruction would have to befall those neighboring them in this world. All that matters is themselves and their ultimate goal. And they've already started their plans.

    But somehow, a brave little Mew had escaped. Injured, and confused, it struggled to continue on it's path to find somebody to help. Floating into the city, the tiny creature had collapsed into a young girl's backyard while she was gardening, her mother resting in a rocking chair as the Eevee family jumped and played within the flowers.

    Little did Cora know, her adventure was just about to start again.

    Charlotte Le'Strange


    The sun shinned through the Crystal that was being held up by a pale hand, towards the morning sky. Dirty blonde hair was sprawled out across the bright grass, and a young girl lay with a young male Riolu Pokemon. The girl had ear buds producing from her ears, and she seemed lost in thought as she gazed upon the necklace in her hand. The Riolu was curled up beside the girl, sleeping peacefully while she argued with herself.

    "I could go for my last badge..." She sighed aloud. "Or we could go train more." The girl glared at the necklace as it gleamed into her eyes. There were so many choices, but the deep unsettling desire for adventure had settled into her stomach, making it impossible of Char to sleep, eat, and stay in one place. She felt that if she traveled she might find her 'destiny' and be able to make her mark on the world. "Well, who needs an eighth badge anyway?" She mumbled before letting her arm fall down beside her head with a light thud.

    A sudden rustle, rustle broke Charlotte from her thoughts, and the girl quickly sat up. Riolu jerked awake as well, the small Pokemon taking on a defensive position beside the trainer. Suddenly, an Abra rolled out of near by bushes, beaten and bruised, it took one look at the blonde teen, and then promptly passed out. char quickly slipped the necklace back around her neck before she jumped up and bounded over to the wounded Pokemon, worry coursing through her veins as she dropped to her knees beside the creature.

    Without thinking, the young girl scooped the Pokemon up into her arms, and broke off into a run towards the nearest Poke Center.
    "Come on, Riolu!" She hollard over her shoulder, not paying any heed to the other Pokemon as it trailed after her. Her bag dug into her shoulder blades with each stride she made, and her breath came out in puffs, but Char didn't stop. She didn't stop when she fell and had to tumble to keep going, or when she ran into an old guy. She kept going until she reached the center.

    Chase Wickson


    The battle he had taken part in had been less than pleasant, but he couldn't settle fr a group of thugs stealing a little girls Pokemon either. Chase Wickson, Pokemon Ranger, looked like hell. His uniform was tattered and covered in dirt, and his skin was slightly bruised with hints of grim clinging to him, along with dried sweat. None of that mattered to him right now though, what mattered was he couldn't mind his Abra. The bloody Pokemon had probably teleported away when it sensed the danger.

    "Damn it," He hissed and his shoes slid on the dirt path, resulting in his pace slowing. The Ranger had run all the way from one town to the next to find his Pokemon, but so far he was having no such luck. No other choice then." He gritted out. Soon instead of the dirt path, his feet pounded upon the sun heated pavement, and he worked his way through crowds, towards the local Poke Center.

    Soon, the boy found himself bursting through the doors and racing towards a startled Nurse. Has a Abra been admit-" He was cut off as someone else burst through the doors, a short Pokemon trailing behind them. It was a girl, a few years younger than Chase, her blonde hair was tousled and her Trainer outfit was covered in sweat. In her arm, was his Abra.

    Gardening was hard work, sure, but it wasn't any better under such harsh conditions. The sun blitzing down, her Pokemon being the only ones to have any fun... Sigh, even her mother was rocking under the shade. Today was the one year mark of her ceased adventures with her Eevee family, but her mother was in better shape now when ever. Maybe it was just because they were around the house in order to help. After all, her dad hadn't been around for a long time.

    Hey, for all she knew, she might even be able to go back out to train again. All she needed was some sort of miracle. Not this dead and dying boredom... Really, she needed anything but this.

    Groaning as she finished patting the soil around one of the plants, Cora stood up as she brushed her knees off. This was almost just too hot to deal with. Nope, not worth it in the least... Looking back towards her mother, a smiling, happier version than a year ago, well, it put a different tone on things. Or at least, they kinda did.

    It wasn't until something crashed into the backyard's tree, than landing into the bushes and newly planted flowers.

    "Cora, is everything okay over there...?" Her mother stood up, taking a few steps towards the grassy yard.

    "Yeah, mom! It might just be a Pokemon!" Cora dismissed, putting down her gardening trowel as she slowly made her way over to the crash site. Worried and concerned, the dirty-blonde parted the plants only to be genuinely stunned. How.. in the world...?

    This couldn't be real. This wasn't real. This couldn't be happening!

    A thousand thoughts began to run through her mind. Why was it here? Why was it hurt? What... in the world was happening? Was this some sign as to why the world was falling into chaos?

    Her felt her breathing pick up, a cold sweat pouring over her body. This... was too scary for her. But here was the one. Mew... Swallowing hard, she pulled off her extra layer (maybe that was why she was whining about the heat so badly?) and wrapped it around the poor creature.

    "Mom! I-I... I need to go! Something's seriously wrong!"

    "Huh! Cora! Wait!" By the time Cora had open the gate to the backyard and dashed off, it was too late. Right now, Mew was all the mattered, it needed help. Badly, and unfortunately that was what Cora needed to do. She couldn't possibly run quick enough to serve the urgency of the situation.

    "Eh? What's happening?"

    "Mama, is that Pokemon dying?"

    "Something's terribly wrong!"


    Slamming her tiny body into the Poke Center doors, carefully shielding Mew, Cora cried out. "Quick! Someone help! I-It's going to die!" Cora cried, the jacket finally falling off to reveal the poor cute legendary. Eyes adjusting, it seemed like a Ranger was having his own issues, as did a blonde... girl? Was that? "Charlotte!" Cora cried, running quickly over as Nurse Joy began to fret not only over the Abra, but not shocked and overly-concerned for the poor legendary.

    The last thing Cora heard from the Pokemon, was a soft "mew", as well as the Pokemon opening it's eyes briefly to show its thankful blue eyes.

    Charlotte blinked in surprise at the sight of a Ranger standing with Nurse Joy by the front desk. As soon as they spotted her, the two of them rushed forward. The blonde gave a startled yelp and stumbled back, nearly getting knocked over as someone else burst through the doors. In flew a much shorter blonde girl, holding a small mass of clothes and Pokemon. Char let the Ranger pluck the Abra from her arms to inspect it, the building could have burst into flames at that moment and she wouldn't have noticed, she was too focused on the girl in front of her. "C-Cora?" She stuttered out, stumbling toward her old friend. Ironically enough, today was the 1 year mark since they had gone their separate ways. "What are you..." She trailed off after catching sight of the Pokemon Cora held to her chest.

    Every trainer had heard of them. Legendary Pokemon. Some would be lucky (or sometime unlucky) to even see one, let alone carry one. It didn't make sense though, the legendaries had been going into hibernation lately, why on earth would Cora have a Mew. "What's going on?" Char's blue eyes flashed up to her old friends face, confusion clouding them.

    Cora looked over to Charlotte in panic, only to ignore the female briefly. "Nurse Joy, please! Mew's dying! Someone hurt it!" Cora pleaded once more, tears falling from her eyes as the Nurse nodded shakily, taking the Pokemon before directing the female to the Ranger.

    "Sir! Please hand you're Abra to my assistant, she'll take care of it." Nurse joy exclaimed, rushing to another room with the Mew with a herd of volunteers in order to help it.

    Cora froze finally, dropping to her knees and hyperventilating. This was not okay. This could not be happening. "C-Charlotte, tell me I'm dreaming! This cannot be happening! W-Why?! I don't understan-" Cora covered her ears, trembling in a mix of emotions.

    Chase silently handed off his Abra to an assistant and watched as the two interacted silently. Charlotte dropped to her knees in front of Cora - ignoring the bruising pain - and grasped her friends shoulders tightly. "Look at me." She said calmly. When Cora didn't respond, she shook the smaller girl slightly, jarring her to look up. "I know what you think, but listen," She started tensely. "Did you see that Mew? it wasn't going to hurt you, it's not bad, it's just something from a story, and that's okay Cora, it's real, and that's okay." She pulled her friend closer, as she whispered fiercely.

    "Cora, you saved it." her eyes were intent. "You saved it from becoming nothing but a old story, that Mew is going to live because of you." Without another word she pulled her into a soft hug. "Calm down for the sake of the Mew...."

    "It's... a story.. It has to be..." Cora choked, crying even harder no matter what words were used to try and calm her again. Not again. Not after-- "I don't want... " Cora whispered, the images of that Pokemon flooding her mind. The horrible, horrible nightmare... No six year old should of had to go through that. The sheer panic, everything caused her to suddenly stand, although she shook and trembled, stumbling for the exit before the nightmare seemed to blow up right in front her.

    She had been sucked into the nightmare, her body in reality hitting the ground in a loud thump.

    Char cried out, reaching a futile hand towards her friend as she stumbled away. "Don't go Cora!" She called helplessly, but her words fell on deaf ears. Without thinking she jumped up and chased after the girl, panic making her heart stutter as the smaller girl started to fall. "No!" Her scream echoed off the walls as she dropped down and slid on her knees, catching Cora's head before it could collide with the floor.

    Chase shifted uncomfortably at the two girls confrontation before catching a Nurse by the elbow and nodding towards the fallen girl. "Ma'am, would it be possible to get her a bed until she comes too? I believe she's fallen ill." He shifted again, glancing at the two girls. "I suppose the other one can accompany me to check on Mew." He nodded,clearly satisfied with his conclusion.

    Nurse Joy tilted her head with a bit of discomfort. "Well... I'd rather someone stay with the girl until she comes too... Mew is still under intensive care as well, and it might be for the next few hours. Unfortunately, it looks like it was tortured, if not experimented on. There are needle holes on certain parts of the poor thing's body." She paused. "How light is she? We can carry her to one of the spare rooms... We're pretty full though..."

    Char jerked at the mention of someone experimenting on a Pokemon, her teeth grinding together. Chase stared down at Nurse Joy for a moment, before turning striding towards the girl. He easily swept her small form into his arms and turned back. His eyes appeared bored and emotionless. "I will stay with the girl, take her to the Mew once you get her into a room." He said simply, gesturing for the Nurse to lead the way. "You don't want that Pokemon waking up alone." He mumbled.

    Nurse Joy sighed, nodding. Waving towards yet another Nurse Joy, the two split up, one leading Chase to the spare room, the other leading Char to the waiting room. "It may take a while for Mew to come out..." That was the only the half of it.

    Cora hissed in her sleep, curling up in Chase's arms as she shivered. She was back there. Back in that's realm. No... No words even came out of her mouth as her eyes squeezed shut even tighter, her little hands attaching themselves to Chase's shirt.

    Chase stared down at the girl silently, his face screwing up as he watched her distress. Why was the child so scared over a Mew? It was no bigger than her head. Perhaps it was a bad experience, but that didn't really make much sense. It was a legendary. He silently swept into the room after Nurse Joy and lay her girl upon the bed before leaning against the wall. "Inform me when the Mew wakes." he said before turning away from her.

    Char sat down uncertainly in the waiting room, subconsciously clinging to Cora's jacket as she waited for Mew to come out.
    Image


    Only an hour or so later, Cora's eyes had finally begun to flutter open... The nightmare was just that. A nightmare."Eh... Where am I-" Scratch that, it wasn't. She was.. In the Poke Center, all because of that-- ugh. She knew most likely she had another break, and that only lead to an annoyed hand to her face. "They told me... I was fine..."

    Mew on the other hand, was quick to zoom out of the medical room. Spotting the similar jacket that had wrapped it, it went to eye level with Charlotte. Only to start tugging on it, it's cute sounds simply spilling from it before it grew tired, resting partially on Charlotte and the jacket. Nurse Joy was already informing the Ranger however on the fact Mew was available now.

    Chase had taken the chance to clean up and change his uniform out for a less tattered one while the girl slept, and when he emerged from the bathroom that was connected to the room his hair was slightly damp and he now wore a bright red and black Ranger uniform, his hat clipped to his belt. He blinked in mild surprise as the girl sat up and started to talk to herself. He opened his mouth, to ask if she was OK, a Nurse Joy burst into the room, looking slightly flustered. "Mew has woken..."

    Meanwhile Char was nearly had a heart attack when the half awake girl was startled by a sudden tugging sensation on the jacket she held. Looking down, she was more surprised than ever to see the Mew there, tugging on Cora's jacket. She was about to release it to the Pokemon when it gave up and simply fell on top of her, burying it's face in the jacket. Charlotte hesitated for a moment, before gently petting it's head in a reassuring manner. "You're safe now." She cooed. "Cora and I won't let anyone hurt you ever again, I promise." Her voice was soft - like that of a mothers.

    The Mew pulled away, almost as if suspicious. There were plenty of scientists who sounded like that... It didn't mean a thing as of right now. Shaking it's head, it made a loud "Mewww!", it's little arm waving towards the spare rooms.

    Cora froze as she instantly picked her head up at the nurse, frowning. Ah... She needed her jacket. "I-I'm sorry, but I need to go get my jacket and-" Standing up, Cora froze. Dried... blood? Eh? When was she slashed? They small... maybe caused by accident by a Sneasel? She had passed a few strange men and a few Sneasels... "Wait, maybe they were... the guys!" Cora stood up alarmed. "I have... to go find them! They might be the ones who hurt it!"

    Charlotte from at the Mew for a moment before smiling and nodding. "I'll take you to Cora." She said gently, carefully lifting the Mew into her arms and positioning the Jacket so it lay half on top of the Pokemon. She walked at a decent pace, worried of jarring the animal and causing it pain.

    Meanwhile Chase start uncertainly at the girl before him. "Slow down, you've just passed out." He walked towards her and placed a hand on her shoulder so he could steer her back towards the bed. "If it was one of those guys we'll find out, right now you need to take it slow." He spoke gently, half turning in time to see Char hesitate outside the rooms door with the mew in hand.

    "Take it slow?" Cora's eyes grew slightly tough. "If they're willing to hurt humans, not only Pokemon, there could be a crisis!" She planted her feet firmly, doing her best not to budge, yet she flinched noticing the Mew, who in turn began to fly around her head, than Chase's once wiggled out of the jacket and Charlotte's arms...

    However, it seemed to have a more content spot on top of the Ranger's head.

    Chase's eye twitched as a less than lightweight settled on top of his head, before settling to glare at the girl before him. "I'm aware of what could happen, if you haven't noticed. I've already contacted base and we have Pokemon Rangers coming this way now to take the Mew to a more secure position and scope the area for possible threats." He let his arms drop to his sides.

    Charlotte jumped into the room in surprise. "You can't take the Mew away! He wants to be with Cora!" Her eyes were wide and she shook her head. "The Mew should be where if feels safe, you don't want it to panic!"

    "Well, obviously they do! For all they know, they could be double agents!" Cora spat, prodding Chase's chest with a finger. "You... you..!"

    Mew could only end up floating off of Chase's head into it's bubble, right into the tallest corner of the room. No way. Not happening. However, it seemed like things were only going to get worse from here. Taking a deep breath, Cora nudged Charlotte innocently. Standing up with arms extended to the Mew, even if she seemed shaky by it, she was quick to grab it and bolt right out of the room. "Char! Come on! Cover me!"

    Charlotte stood there for half a second, confusion mixing with apprehension, and then without seemingly thinking about it, she grabbed a near by tray and slammed it down onto the Ranger's head with all her might. The boy gave a shout of protest and stumbled back, tripping over a stray wire he fell backwards onto the bed, only to roll over it and land on the other side with a hard thud and loud groan.

    Char bolted out the door after Cora, grabbing her bag from the waiting room as they passed. She was now thankful she had put Riolu back in his Poke ball this morning, the small thing wouldn't have been able to keep up with the two girls. She spun around as the neared the front doors. "Cora!" She hollard while fishing out two Poke Balls from her pack.

    "Typhlosion! Luxray! Go!" She extended both arms, and in a flash of bright light two Pokemon stood in front of the two girls. "Typhlosion!! Use Smoke Screen!" Her order rebounded off the walls as Chase came into sight on the other end of the corridor. The pokemon did as ordered and then retreated back into his ball. Soon a thick black screen of smoke filled the room. "Luxray!" Char spun around towards the large lion like Pokemon.

    It seemingly knew what to do, because it swept down low and offered it back to Cora, Char was already climbing on when she looked down at her friend. "We'll move faster on Luxray - it'll only last for a little while though, come on." She flashed her friend a daring smile, the one she had used when they were both younger and she was about to do something dare-devilish.

    A bright smile appeared on Cora's face as she pushed Charlotte up a bit more. "Come on! I won't be able to fit!" Cora whined, climbing onto Luxray as she held Mew tightly. "Come on! My house! I need to get my Pokemon!" Looking back, Cora almost shot a 'catch us if you can' look towards the Ranger. "Cyaaa, Mr. Ranger!" A giggle was quick to escape her lips.

    Smiled, and nudged Luxray with her foot. "You heard her bud." She said. The Pokemon lifted it head up, inhaled deeply, and then took off. His strides were long and swift, and though each step jolted the girls it was accelerating - the speed he was moving.

    Image


    The sky was darkening as they reached Cora's house, and a strange foreboding feeling was spring up in Char's stomach, but she easily slid off of Luxray, and after helping Cora down, she patted the pokemon on the head and let him retreat into his ball for now. "Let's hurry Cora." She said quietly, glancing up at the sky uneasily.

    Cora nodded, running in via the backyard's gate. "Mom! Get my Pokeballs! I have to go! There's an issue going on!" Cora's mom looked alarmed, standing up from her rocking chair.

    "Charlotte?! What's the Mew doing here? What's going on?!" Ms. Vidal cried, as Cora bolted inside, grabbing all six of her Pokeballs and attaching them to her belt. There was no time to gather her clothing or anything of the sort. Not with the Rangers on the way-

    "Excuse me, but are you two the girls that ran off with the Mew? My friend is more than a little annoyed with you..." A Ranger spoke up, his arms crossing as he stared at the blondes. "Now, I'd appreciate it if you girls gave it over, we're only trying to help it."

    Char stopped mid step as she caught sight of the Blonde Ranger. an uneasy feeling sprung up in her chest, and she carefully took a step back. While Cora had been getting her Pokemon ready, Char had busied herself with shoveling some of her friends clothes into a pale green duffle bag. The girl never took her eyes off the Ranger as she swept down and grabbed a spare pair of sneakers from Cora's closet and shoved them into the bag, before zipping it up and tossing it to the other girl.

    "I'd appreciate it if you showed some identification, sir." Charlotte sneered, her hand twitching towards her Poke Belt.

    The Ranger sighed, holding out his identification. "The names Gil. Chase can even vouch for me." Gil glared, his own hair twitching to his Pokeballs. "I'd really hate to take Mew by force."

    Charlotte scowled as she eyed the guy carefully. "Last time I checked, it wasn't in your job description to take anything by force." She said, crouching slightly. She knew what a Ranger did, she was going to be a Ranger soon, this guy was out of his jurisdiction.

    "Last time I checked, this was a crisis." Gil glared, hand going on his hip. "It's a nice try though, acting like you know my job. Now if you excuse me, I'd like to talk to the other girl. Perhaps she can give me a more peaceful resolution."

    Charlottes own hand went to her hip, and she stepped in front of Cora and Mew. "That other Ranger only sent out a call an hour ago. He's in charge of this sector. There's no way you got here this fast, unless you were already on your way when the call was sent out." Her eyes narrowed. it was no lie when said that the young girl was observant. This Ranger had no real hope of a peaceful resolution, it was clear with the way he held himself.

    The man shook his head. "We're practically partners, hun. I make it a point to not stray too far from my friend."

    Char squinted. "Ranger's don't have partners. What are you trying to sell bub?"

    "I said... practically."

    "And I said, I'm not buying it. So piss off." Char practically snarled the words. "You're not coming near that Mew."

    "What do I need to do? Get Chase?"

    "Tempting thought, he might have a bit of a headache when you find him though, no worries, you can go get your buddy, we'll just wait here." She smirked.

    "Aha, he's a resourceful guy. Trust me. He's going to be here any second now." Gil smirked right back at Charlotte, crossing his arms as he leaned against the gate. "Now, we wait."

    She laughed aloud. "You sir, are a moron." With a flick of her wrist, a Poke ball flew through the air, and out came Typhlosion. "Smoke Screen." She hissed. The Pokemon followed orders and shot the screen of black smoke right at the Ranger. Char spun around and grabbed Cora's arm. She dragged the girl into the house, and slammed the door behind her. "Front yard! Now!" She cried, charging out towards the back yard with Cora in tow.

    Not too far away, Chase was groggily running down the road, cursing himself for letting a girl get the best of him. It was too bad no one else had answered his call, the two idiots might end up getting away. "What a pain," he sighed, rubbing the red blotch on his head.

    "Sneasel! Get the girl!" Gil screamed, the pokemon already running quickly around the house and after the girls. Claw at the ready, it was close enough to the female lagging behind to use Scratch!

    Char glanced behind them just in time to see the Sneasel come around the side of the house, seeing it's extended claws she yelped in surprise and jerked Cora forward so hard the girls shoulder could have very well popped out of place. She swung them around just in time to avoid the claws that sliced through her shirt. Char stooped low, gathered a fist full of dirt, and hurled it at the Sneasel with such force it lodged in the Pokemons mouth, and then she pushed Cora forward to keep running.

    Chase rounded the corner in time to see the little...confrontation, and his face screwed up in confusion. Gil? What was he doing here? This wasn't really anywhere near his section, and no one had answered his SOS call, so why was his childhood friend here, having his Sneasel attack two girls?

    Gil was finally caught up to Char, anger burning in his eyes. "This could of simply been avoided if you just handed over the Mew!" Gil yelled, hand attached to yet another Pokeball on his belt. "Now, it's your fault your mother's going to have to bury you." The blonde snarled, "Go! Conkeldurr!" Gil threw his pokeball as hard as possible, the Pokemon slamming into the ground.

    Char stepped in front of Cora, her eyes hard. "You won't lay a hand on her, run Cora!" She snarled, throwing a pokeball of her own. "Go! Registeel!" and out came the Pokemon, landing in front of the girls. "I knew you were a phony." She spat.

    "Conkeldurr! Tighten your focus! Get ready to use focus punch of Registeel!" Gil shouted, a pointing finger at the creature.
    Conkeldurr is tightening its focus!

    "Registeel, no time to waste! Use body slam!" Char yelled, taking a half step forward.
    Registeel used body slam on Conkeldurr!

    Conkeldurr lost 15.7% of its health!
    Conkeldurr lost its focus and couldn't move!


    Gil bit his thumb, "Conkeldurr, use focus blast!"
    Conkeldurr used Focus Blast!

    The opposing Registeel avoided the attack!
    Charlotte glared at Gil. "Registeel, use counter!"
    The opposing Registeel used Counter!
    But it failed!


    Chase watched in horror as his old friend acted out against these girls in such a way. He was horrified and he felt paralyzed.

    "Quick! Get ready for focus punch!"
    Conkeldurr is tightening its focus!

    "Now Registeel, use Aerial Ace!"
    The opposing Registeel used Aerial Ace!
    It's super effective! Conkeldurr lost 25.1% of its health!

    Conkeldurr lost its focus and couldn't move!


    "Again Registeel!" Char said, raising a fist slightly.
    The opposing Registeel used Aerial Ace!
    It's super effective! Conkeldurr lost 23.7% of its health!


    Gil gritted his teeth, "Use ice punch!"
    Conkeldurr used Ice Punch!
    It's not very effective... The opposing Registeel lost 10.7% of its health!

    Char glared and waved her hand. "One more time!"
    The opposing Registeel used Aerial Ace!
    It's super effective! Conkeldurr lost 23.7% of its health!


    "Fire punch! Let's go!"
    Conkeldurr used Fire Punch!
    It's super effective! The opposing Registeel lost 40.7% of its health!


    Shit, this wasn't working! He needed to recall Conkeldurr...! "Conkeldurr, come back! Go! Azumarill!" Throwing out the water-type Pokemon's ball, the cute Pokemon had a determined look on it's face.

    Char smirked in a taunting way at the 'Ranger'.
    The opposing Registeel used Aerial Ace!
    Azumarill lost 14.9% of its health!


    "Registeel! Come back!" She cried out as another voice yelled. "Go Donphan!" Chase suddenly jumped forward, throwing his own poke ball. "Gil, what are you doing?" He spoke loud enough for the other male to hear.
    Gil stood alarmed, almost as if he was considering to continue the act.... But why should he? "Easy, I'm getting back the Mew! These little brats are just going to cause it more harm!"

    Chase shook his head in disbelief. "This isn't how you handle it! Someone could get hurt Gil!"

    "Well there isn't any option, and if you stand in the way, than your the enemy as well!" Gil snapped. "Azumarill! Use Aqua Jet!"
    The Water Gem strengthened Aqua Jet's power!
    It's super effective! The opposing Donphan lost 49.5% of its health!


    Chase gritted his teeth. "Donphan activate Absorb Bulb! Now use Special Attack!"
    The Absorb Bulb raised the opposing Donphan's Special Attack!

    Gil chuckled. "Again! Aqua Jet!"
    It's super effective! The opposing Donphan lost 39.5% of its health!

    "Donphan use Fire Fang!" He snarled.
    It's not very effective... Azumarill lost 11.4% of its health!

    "Again! One more time and it's down!"
    It's super effective! The opposing Donphan lost 11.1% of its health!

    The opposing Donphan fainted!

    "No!" Chase cried. "Go! Charizard!" Char yelled, throwing her Pokeball.

    Why stray from a beautiful attack? Especially when it was against a fire type! "Again!"
    Azumarill used Aqua Jet!
    It's super effective! The opposing Charizard lost 33.3% of its health!

    The opposing Charizard used Fire Fang!
    It's not very effective... Azumarill lost 26.5% of its health!


    The opposing Charizard used Flame Charge!
    It's not very effective... Azumarill lost 19.1% of its health!
    The opposing Charizards Speed rose!

    Azumarill used Aqua Tail!
    It's super effective! The opposing Charizard lost 66.7% of its health!
    The opposing Charizard fainted!

    "Give up yet?!" Gil shouted, smirking as if he had already won.

    Charlotte snorted. "Don't be so sure of yourself.Go Registeel!!"

    "Azumarill, use Aqua Jet!"

    Azumarill used Aqua Jet!
    The opposing Registeel lost 9.1% of its health!


    "Registeel use Aerial Ace!"
    The opposing Registeel used Aerial Ace!
    Azumarill lost 15.8% of its health!


    Gill frowned. Azumarill was so close to fainting...! "Azumarill, come back! Go! Conkeldurr!"
    Azumarill, come back!
    Go! Conkeldurr!


    "Now Registeel! Take Conkeldurr out!"
    The opposing Registeel used Aerial Ace!
    It's super effective! Conkeldurr lost 13.3% of its health!
    Conkeldurr fainted!


    "A worthy sacrifice! Go! Sneasel!" Gil didn't even need to call out the Pokemon. Blood even lingered on the Sneasel's paw from slashing the little girl Cora hours prior.
    Go! Sneasel!
    Sneasel used Aerial Ace!
    It's not very effective... The opposing Registeel lost 5.5% of its health!


    "No Pokemon should be a sacrifice! Use body slam!"
    The opposing Registeel used Body Slam!
    Sneasel lost 43.8% of its health!
    Sneasel is paralyzed! It may be unable to move!

    Char grinned. "Not so high and mighty now, are you? Are you sure you're a Ranger?" She sneered.

    "Sneasel, come back!" Gil snarled. "You useless piece of crap! I knew you'd be so--" Gil cut himself short as he gripped an odd Pokeball so tightly one could assume it'd shatter. "You asked for it... Meet your doom! Go! Kitsunoh!" Gil hollered, throwing the Pokemon to reveal a strange, disturbing creature. "Frisk Registeel!"

    Chase stared in horror at the Pokemon before him, his eyes wide. "Gil? What....how?" He choked out.

    "Heh, meet the sacrifice of our fellow 'Pokemon'!" Gil smirked.

    Charlotte let out a horrified gasp and Chase shook his head. "How could you Gil? I don't understand, why do you want the Mew so badly?" He gestured towards Kitsunoh. "How did this happen?"

    "If I told you, I'd actually have to kill you. Be a shame, really. But I'll give you a hint, those poor Pokemon are in a better place now."

    Charlotte's eyes flashed in rage. "Registeel use Aerial Ace!" She snarled.

    The opposing Registeel used Aerial Ace!
    It's not very effective... Kitsunoh lost 8.6% of its health!


    "Kitsunoh, use curse! Don't let that overgrown piece of rock beat you!"

    Kitsunoh lost 49.8% of its health!


    "Registeel, use counter!"
    The opposing Registeel used Counter!
    It doesn't affect Kitsunoh...

    "Kitsunoh, Dark Pulse! Now!"
    Kitsunoh used Dark Pulse!
    The Dark Gem strengthened Dark Pulse's power!
    The opposing Registeel lost 9.1% of its health!

    The opposing Registeel fainted!

    "Again! Curse! Sacrifice yourself!"

    Suddenly, Riolu burst forth from it Pokeball looking thoroughly put out with the Ranger that had hurt his trainer. Suddenly the Pokemons body beguan to plus and grow and then, it started to grow. "R-riolu?" Char called out with wide eyes.

    Chase shook his head. "That's not a Riolu anymore, He's evolving, he's a Lucario now." He said watching the Pokemon closely.

    "D-Damn it...! Azumarill, use Aqua Jet!" Gil was at the end of his wits. Was he really going to lose to a stupid brat?!

    Azumarill used Aqua Jet!
    The opposing Lucario lost 33.4% of its health!


    I have this under my control, Char. The trainer jumped in surprise at the sound her Lucario speaking in her head.
    The opposing Lucario used Hidden Power!
    It's super effective! Azumarill lost 12.1% of its health!
    Azumarill fainted!


    Charlotte jumped forward beside her Lucario with a small grin. "What was that about winning?" She asked innocently.

    Gil smirked. "I already have. By any chance... do you know where your friend is? And her little Mew?~ Hahahaa-"

    He didn't see the blonde move, but before he could blink she was in front of him. The girl reared her arm back, and slammed her fist into his face. The mere force sending the Ranger flying backwards. "Lucario," She was seething, her whole face red. "Use Hidden Power Grass!" She jumped to the side as the Pokemon let loose and a large pieces of grass shot forward, slicing at the Rangers skin and leaving small scratches.

    Gil didn't even flinch, in fact, he got up and dusted himself off. "As fun as that was..." Gil cracked his knuckles as he began to turn. "You're little blonde friend might as well be dead right now. Grunt, get to work.

    Out from the bushes, one emerged. "Sir, please let us heal you!"

    Than came another, this one female. "Ah, you little..." For something to small and tiny, much like Cora, the female packed a punch when hitting Charlotte, only to be pried off by her disclosed Darkrai.

    Now... is not the time, Molly... It warned, pulling the female away with the male grunt and their leader.

    Char slid back and crouched down, her hands tightening to fists while she spat a bit of blood at the girl. "That all you got?" She sneered. Her eyes moved to Gil. "If anything happened to Cora, I'll mount your damn head on my wall." She was screaming, her anger getting the best of her. Chase took a step forward and placed a hand on her shoulder.

    "Gil, if you do this you'll be defected from the Pokemon Rangers, is this what you want?" He asked his friend, his eyes hard.

    Gil looked back briefly. "In all honesty, I'm not the one defected. As of today, you're an enemy of the Pokemon Rangers."

    Chase blinked in surprise, his mouth falling open in an O shape. "What? What are you talking about?!"

    "The next time any of us see you again, there will be a battle immediately." No response to the question, just Gil as he began to fade off into the night with his grunts.

    "Who are you?" Char screamed after him.

    "Heh, wouldn't you like to know? Don't you have a friend to save from bleeding out?"

    "If I ever meet you again, I'll end your life." Charlotte spoke with such determination it would be hard not to believe her threat. Without another word, the girl spun around and ran towards where she had seen Cora last. She pushed through the tree line and headed towards the town bridge, where she could hear the noise of a confrontation. Please, please be alright Cora!
