Well, it's been a year and a few months since I posted my first fic here, and now it's come time for me to post what most likely will be my last. I've been thinking about this fic for a while, mulling the plot and characters around in my mind. Now I have it all together and am ready to let this fic materialize into its own thread. I'd like to thank Negrek immensely for all the helpful beta-ing that she's done for the fic. Without her aid, there would be mistakes and plot holes that I would have missed. Thanks, Negrek.
Anyway, the plot goes like this: a boy whose father is a research scientist at the weather institute has discovered an alarming pattern in pokemon evolution. He has discovered, with his own eyes and in collaboration with other scientists across the regions, this: some pokemon are evolving only partially. Partially in that they either have the physical characteristics of both pre-evolved and evolved forms or their evolved form has lost the ability to use attacks inherent to that pokemon (i.e. a wartortle who evolved from squirtle but forgot how to use water attacks.)
To combat this problem, Professor Saiko spearheads the "Omnistone Project". This stems from the completion of the Pokemon Genome Project with which the specific chain of genes that causes evolution was discovered. The Omnistone reacts with these genes, causing evolution in pokemon who have failed to evolve on their own. When Professor Saiko is kidnapped by a mysterious force, it remains in the hands of his son to spread the Omnistone project to other towns and even regions so that it can squelch the pattern of mis-evolution. The journey gets even more exciting when it is discovered who their opposition is.
The story centers on the Professor's son, a specific pokemon who evolved without the ability to use its type of attacks, and a dark-haired girl who travels with them. These are not the only characters, but the only ones you can know about now without some plot elements being spoiled. I do want to say this, though: unlike my past fics, this one will derive its value from both the characters' depth and the action. Both will be there in good measure, for sure, though.
So many plot twists are in store for this fic, I feel fuzzy just thinkin' about 'em. Throughout these chapters, the main characters will discover the real reason for their journey, the source of the mis-evolution pattern, and many more secrets about the pokemon world that will rock theirs.
The battles will be innovative. I really can't elaborate as to how without giving away anything, but the battles will be innovative.

Also, I want to make this a very easy read. A kind of all-access fic, if you will. No chapter yet has been much longer than five pages, and a lot of them are a little less. I wanted to make a story that you could pick up and read without having to pack a sandwich first.Originally Posted by Lost in the Haze
