Well, this is my first fanfic and I've always wanted to be a writer, so I hope you like it! Rated PG.
“Sir, the enemy is approaching.”
“What is the estimated time of their arrival, lieutenant?”
“Three hours, sir.”
“Tell the troops to stay where they are, we'll be waiting for the enemy when they come.”
“Yes, sir.” The lieutenant bowed his head and walked away.
What you're experiencing here is a war, a war between two legendary beasts. One, a being of the storm who is fast as lightning, and has a cry that sounds of crashing thunder on a stormy night. His name, is Raikou. And the other, a being of fire who can make a volcano erupt by just one bark and create the hottest flames you'll ever touch. His name, is Entei.
The two Pokémon that were speaking to each other was the leader of the Zap Squad Raikou, and his lieutenant Sparkplug the Luxray. The enemy they were discussing was none other than the Zap Squad's greatest enemy the Magma Tribe who's leader was Entei.
But Entei and Raikou weren't always enemies. They were actually friends, brothers even. They were part of a trio, the trio consisted of the two brothers and their third brother Suicune. Suicune can purify dirty water and control the north winds. And this trio of legendary beasts were best of friends until one frightful day, they day they went to war and brought all of the same type Pokémon with them.
It was a stormy day, but only stormy because Raikou made it that way. Raikou has a job to attend to, every day he'll decide where to put a storm in the Pokémon world. He needs to make regions of the world balanced by the storms he makes. And that day he made the storm in his home region, Johto. Entei also had a job much like Raikou's but with volcanoes, he would make a volcano erupt in a location at a time, but keep the location and time balanced. Suicune's job was different from the others he had to purify murky or dirty lakes of any filth. This job did not need to be balanced but it had to be done every time a lake was dirty or a danger for water going Pokémon.
Each of the legendary beasts had a separate home in the Johto region. But on that stormy day, while Entei was at his home, lightning struck it, his home was a cave. The cave started to collapse on Entei so he ran, fast. As the cave was just about to crush Entei he found his way out. Panting, he looked at his destroyed home, he knew this was Raikou's fault, and that Raikou tried to crush him, but why? Why would Raikou do this? So, determined to find Raikou and know why he did this, he began to walk to Raikou's home in Olivine city. As Entei just approached the home, he was stricken down by lightning.
Entei slowly got up, bruised and burned. He saw Raikou's home and knew that this was no longer a time for words, this was a time for action. So, he shot a Fire Blast at Raikou's home, with Raikou in it. The house of sticks and logs quickly caught fire and Raikou burst out.
“What have you done Entei!?” Raikou demanded in a tired voice.
“I should be asking you that question brother, you shot lightning at my home and me! Why not do the same to you with fire?” Entei yelled in a husky, breathy roar.
“I have no idea what you mean, brother.” Raikou said innocently.
Entei looked surprised, no, he thought. Raikou had to have done it, there is no one else who controls storms. “Liar!” Entei roared, “You sent a storm on me I send flames at you, we are even.”
Raikou chuckled, “You destroyed my home, and you think we can be even by this?!”
Entei growled, “Fine, then let's get even by this!” and Entei shot another Fire Blast at Raikou.
Raikou tumbled back, smoke coming from his fur. He bared his two fangs and sunk them into Entei. It became a full on battle within a few minutes, electricity and fire spraying every direction.
A wandering Delibird saw the battle and was shocked, so she flew straight for Suicune and told him about his brother's fight. The battle was still going on when Suicune came.
“Brothers, I am very disappointed with you.” Suicune calmly said in the middle of the battle.
Raikou looked up, Entei was holding him down with his front paws. “You have no part of this Suicune, leave!” He roared.
“I will not leave,” Suicune, said “I want to know what this is about.”
“This is about Raikou trying to kill me!” Entei yelled.
“I did no such thing Entei, and you know it!” Raikou screamed, still being held down.
“Just stop brothers, you'll make a war out of this in a few hours unless you stop now.”
Entei smiled. “A war, perfect idea!”
Suicune stepped back in shock. “No, you wouldn't Entei! Don't do this!”
Entei let go of Raikou, 'Next morning, we will fight Raikou, don't forget that. I have an army on my side. All the fire type Pokémon around here obey me, I'm sure they will obey me if I make them go to war.” and with that Entei walked off.
As Entei was walking off Raikou yelled “I have the electric Pokémon with me! I can handle the war just as much as you can!”
That was when the Zap Squad and Magma Tribe were created and they have been at war ever since. Suicune blamed himself for the war because he was the one who mentioned it and went into hiding, so ever since that night he was never found.
“Hey, Buzz. Buzz, are you still asleep? BUZZ!” Shockwave yelled.
Shockwave was a young Jolteon, who was inexperienced with the ways of the world and combat. But he, like every other electric type Pokémon of the Johto region, was dragged into the war between the legendary two beasts.
“Ahh! Oh, Shockwave, it's just you. What are you doing up so late?! I nearly had a heart attack!” Buzz exclaimed.
Buzz was a slightly old Flaaffy, who was also dragged into the war. He's very timid and doesn't like to disobey rules; he also constantly worries. Shockwave met him in the middle of the battlefield at the war. Buzz, of course was running away from everything in sight and didn't fight anything at all. Shockwave would occasionally try to take down a member of the Magma Tribe but it would always end in him fainting. Buzz saw Shockwave fainted and couldn't stand seeing another Pokémon hurt, so he picked him up and brought him into his house for safety. Buzz lived in a small hut, that Shockwave, loving danger, finds pathetic and thinks Buzz should live somewhere more dangerous, like a cave. But Shockwave still lives with Buzz and appreciates his help to this day. Shockwave always discusses the war with Buzz and when it will end.
“Whoa, sorry dude I didn't know you'd be so scared. I just wanted to talk about the war.” Shockwave said.
Buzz sighed heavily. “Again? You always wake me up in the middle of the night to talk about the war. Can't it wait 'till morning?”
The Jolteon shook his head. “This can't wait, I have an important question.”
Buzz sighed again. “What is it, Shockwave?”
“How do we stop this war?”
The Flaaffy's jaw dropped, then he exploded with laughter. “We can't end a war caused by legends! They'll keep fighting until one side wins, you know that.”
Shockwave looked disappointed “So...there is absolutely no way we can end it by ourselves? I can't stand this anymore! All the constant worrying about if the Magma tribe will come and attack, I just want this to end.”
Buzz could see that Shockwave was upset and said “Well, there is...one possible way...”
Shockwave immediately stopped frowning and looked up at his friend “Really? What is it? Tell me?!”
“Well, I heard that Entei and Raikou have another brother, his name is Suicune. He may be able to stop the war, but he disappeared once the war started, so I doubt anyone would be able to find him.”
Shockwave ran towards Buzz “Except for us! We're gonna find Suicune and end this war!”
“Nope, sorry, no way, I am not going to do this, and neither are you.”
“Do you want to get fainted again!?”
“We won't, trust me. I think I might know someone who could give us a lead on where Suicune could be...”
