Pokemon: The Legends (PG-15)
POKEMON: THE LEGENDS
Chapter One: On the Edge
Darkness. That's how anyone could explain it. Darkness, the big black void of space. Darkness, the view of anyone evil. Darkness, what we feel as unexplainable. Probably no one can better explain darkness then Latias. Latias, a rare pokemon to encounter, is now even harder to encounter. In fact, she doesn't want to ever be encountered. It is a crime to encounter Latias without reporting it. She and her brother, Latios, have had a difficult time ever scince the war.
The War. Many of those who survived it say it was the bloodiest. No other war has ever had more human and pokemon deaths combined then that war. Simply known as 'The War', it all started when a new member of the Elite Four came into power in Sinnoh. His name was Leroy. Leroy had odd and very liberal views on what the Elite Four should do. He started shunning the advice of the others. Eventually, with the backing of several gangs and a few key Gym Leaders, he kicked off the other members and proclaimed himself, "The Elite One".
He made it a crime to challenge the Elite One, so no one ever could become a Pokemon Master anymore. He made it a crime to talk to other regions outside of Sinnoh. Whats worse, is that he imprisoned people for owning Pokemon he owned. Many citizens were outraged at Leroy's leadership. However, Leroy had a secret police and secret pokemon force that would kill off any opposer, political or civilian.
Then, Leroy formed an army to take over Hoenn, Jhoto, and Kanto, for their lack of their Elite Four's cooperation in forming one superior country. This war was costly, and hurt the citizens even more. Anyone who criticized the war was arrested or killed. The Pokemon Rangers were forced to disbanned for they promoted "Unethical methods of Pokemon Capturing" and "Thought against the leader".
A few years into the war, Kanto and Jhotto were loosing rather badly, and Hoenn was in discussion of uniting with Sinnoh. It was up to the Pokemon to save the day. 3 Pokemon, Latios, Latias, and Rayquazah, supported the Jhotto and Kanto armies in over hundreds of battles. It seemed as though Sinnoh would fall.
However, Leroy found and captured Latios. He tortured Latios and made him a corrupted pawn to Leroy's Sinnoh army. At the final battle on Kanto, in Veridian City, Latias had gotten information that Latios joined Leroy. Against the will of Rayquaza, the Heart broken Latias fled from the battle. Rayquaza was no match for the powerful armies of Leroy and the new power of Latios. He fell in combat, and Kanto fell to Sinnoh. A few days later, Jhotto fell to Sinnoh.
Now, under the name of the Sinnoh empire, Leroy is the strongest pokemon champion in the world. Many Gym Leaders were arrested for defiance against him. It was up to a group of Pokemon Trainers and Rangers who renamed themselves "The Pokemon Fighters" to fight off Leroy. But their numbers were few, and with Latios on Leroy's side, it seemed all but impossible.
Latias is the last sentient pokemon who fights Leroy. The others have gone into hiding, and will not show their faces or fight against Leroy if found. Latias flies over the darkened skies of Sinnoh and Hoenn. However, she sometimes disguises as a human girl named Ember in the town of Vermillion city to learn of current news. She hopes that some day, some how, the world will go back to normal, and her brother return...
