~*~Tensei Hikarizuisho/ Trainer V~*~
A teenage boy with ash-blond hair was walking around outside a newly constructed Realgam Tower, the bright Orre sun glinting off the silvery lenses of his bright-scarlet goggles. He scanned the crowds as he walked, keeping an eye out for any form of suspicious activity. He had gone there as a favor for the Orre Police to investigate rumors of suspicious activity, but things seemed to be fairly ordinary so far. The teen was too preoccupied with his current mission to notice someone coming up behind him.
"Trainer V, I'll give you a lead if you listen to a story..." came a voice behind the teen.
Trainer V turned around to look for the source only to see an elderly man. Part of him wanted to decline, but the man said he had a lead. He thought for a second before he said, "Sure, I guess I have nothing to lose. Why don't we find a place to sit down."
With that the two found a nearby bench and the man began to tell the story of Arceus' creation of the world and man's betrayal of Arceus; however the old man seemed to emphasize it differently than his mother did. When he was finished he said, "Now about that lead. I started that rumor because I would like to ask a favor. Arceus is soon to awaken and destroy this world to recreate it. Will you help me kill Arceus and save this world?"
Trainer V pulled a pokeball off his belt and looked at it as he thought about the old man's request. He didn't like the thought of ending a life, especially if there was another way. After several minutes of deliberating he looked the man in the eyes and said, "I'll help you save the world, but I won't help kill Arceus if there is another way. I have a pokemon that may be able to help convince Him that this world is worth saving." He was referring to his shadow pokemon, Phione. His heart was close to opening, but he wasn't quite there yet. Hopefully he would be there before they confronted Arceus. He smirked and spread his middle and index fingers apart in a v-for-victory sign before saying, "Trainer V is on the case!"
"Then take this." Said the old man as he handed him a piece of paper before leaving. Trainer V looked and saw that it mentioned meeting on Extralink in the Unova region.
Trainer V pulled out his P*DA and began to compose a message saying, "This is Trainer V reporting back in regards to the rumors. They seem to be just that: rumors. I have thoroughly searched the area and found no suspicious actions; however I have received a lead on activity that may threaten all of Orre. I will be following this trail and report back when I have more information."
Trainer V's ears perked up as he heard a voice say, "Anyway, how about we talk about ourselves for now? There may be others coming, and if so, I think it may be a good idea to introduce ourselves." He looked around to find the source. His eyes soon fell upon a cloaked figure who seemed human at first, but he noticed something odd. The cloaked figure had the aura of... A pokemon? It was unmistakeable, the cloaked figure was a pokemon. "...since I'm a wanderer who has no idea where he goes next."
The girl near him seemed to mumble something before saying, "Well, if you want for us to get to know eachother, you start."
"Fine then, I shall start. Those of you with painful pasts, you may hide that part, or your entire past altogether if you wish. As you all know, obviously, I am Free, a traveller. My friend in my arms is Eve, an orphaned Eevee who I have adopted as a sister. I believe pokemons and humans should be equals." Calmly stated the cloaked figure. Trainer V could tell he was hiding something, but he could tell from his aura that he had good reason to hide what he was hiding.
"Fine. I might as well go next, then." The girl sighed, and began to speak. "My name is Rose Flores, of a family of Pokemon Breeders. I have an older brother named Kenshin Flores, and Raki was my first pokemon, and I got her from an egg. Free seems to find me every two towns that I go to. Anyone want to go next?"
"My name is Davis, I'm from the Hoenn region. I had an arguement with my foster parents, so I ran away from home. I have..."
Davis's face transformed into a large grin. "A Mightyena, a Sharpedo, and a Hydreigon!" He stopped talking for a while, then hearing silence, he continued abet in a more dejected tone, "Yea, so I met this old man who gave me a piece of paper. Oh who was the one who said something about God-Slayers? I like that term." His face broke into a grin again. “So uhh… Pokemon…”He continued slowly “They trust me completely. I’m not sure why, but anyone of them would lay down their life for me. Even Pokemon who are not good with people… uh… trust me.”
His gaze fell on Free, who fidgeted uncomfortably on the spot. Davis started walking up to Free, whose heart started pounding. “Pass me the Eevee.” Davis held up his hand.
Heaving a sigh of relief, Free passed Eve over to Davis, before he realised that he had passed Eve over without any doubt. Eve, in Davis’s hand, raised her head and smiled to Davis, before licking his hand. “See?” Davis returned Eve, before looking around.
“Now,” Davis’s face lit up into another cheeky grin. “Who’s next?”
"I'm the champion of love and beauty, Trainer V, and I was born in the Sevii Islands, but I moved to the Orre region when I was little. I actually have the ability to, among other things, see the aura's of pokemon. Which partially brings me to why I came." He reached for one of his pokeballs and released the pokemon inside to reveal a Phione with a pink jewel and star-shaped markings. The more notable features however were it's deep violet aura, though only Trainer V and those with similar gifts were able to notice, and the sheer chill in his stare. Trainer V scooped up the pokemon in his arms and continued, "This Phione here had his heart closed by sinister means and I have been working to open it ever since I recieved him. I'm sure that if I can open his heart before we get to Arceus, then we might have a chance at convincing Him that this world has decent people."
Phione's mind was elsewhere, however, as he eyed the nearby Skarmory and thought, 'Something about that Skarmory doesn't seem right... I had better keep an eye on her, otherwise she might try something with space-cadet.' Phione locked eyes with the skarmory long enough to make it clear that if she tried to harm his trainer, she would learn the true power of a shadow pokemon.
