Concept originally made by Virawl, but he's dissapeared from the internet, and the original thread was falling apart, I decided to take it over. (Since I co-GMed the original.) some parts of his original has been included into this one.

In the beginning, there was only chaos.
From this primal chaos came an egg, and from this egg, the original one. Seeing the chaos around, the original one, slowly but surely, created beings and matter to fill the void. Beings were created. One to control Time, one to control Space, one for Balance, and another for what is now called antimatter.
Over time, others were formed as well. Knowledge, Willpower, Emotion, the gifts of warming fire, life giving water, and fifteen others were given to the myriad of species now on the small life-bearing planet.
And while the region, known as Unova was being formed, by the aid of four brothers and the original four deities, an argument broke out. The two brothers’ goals differed. One fought for truth, while the other, ideals. Yin and Yang, lightning and fire clashed, until the original one put a stop to the battle, by sealing the brothers. They were to sleep until new heroes are able to control them. By fusing the Mirage Beings with the purest of the humans: The Young, the original one created a bond between the two, out of fear that either one will betray the original one in the future. Arceus then went into a deep sleep, only to be reawakened when true chaos is resurrected. And thus, the Legendary Children were created.
Every few years, a legend is born. A child, not quite mortal, yet enough to be mistaken as one. A child, who shares a bond like no other with a Pokémon of legend. To each legendary, a child, and to each child, a creature with powers beyond imagination. Their purpose: Act as a bridge between human and the legendaries. To gently nudge humanity in the right direction under the guidance of gods. To keep balance between order and chaos. In order for this to be possible, this child not only shares a bond which they will be able to communicate with the legendary, but also share some similar abilities and powers. The child shall also have the ability to tame the immense power of a legend. Neither the child nor the parents are aware of their abilities from birth. Most never come to notice the Legendary watching over them, or the powers bubbling beneath the skin. But there will come a time, when all the children must be called upon, and united with their legendaries in order to keep chaos from overrunning humanity.
The young blonde haired blue eyed boy tuned the page of the big heavy book he was reading, only to find that there were pages missing, they seem to have been ripped out by an unknown source. “That’s it?! There has to be more!”
But before he could search for the missing pages, he was interrupted by an “Ahem!” coming from behind, which startled him for a moment. He got up and turned around and saw a young woman, who was close to his age standing at the doorway. She had shoulder length straight blonde hair and blue eyes similar to his own. She also wore a dark hooded robe, exactly the same as he was wearing, except she had the hood down, where he had the hood up. “If you’re finished doing whatever it is you are doing, Father is ready for us. He wants The Book.”
“Of course, Project Legends is finally underway.” The boy replied
The girl rolled her eyes. “Whatever, I still think the idea absolutely ridiculous.” The girl said with contempt in her voice. She turned around and went off.
The boy shut the book he was reading, tucked it underneath his arm, and followed her. “It’s a good thing nobody cares what you think.” He said smugly.
Soon the two teens arrived in the grand hall where their father was. The walls were adorned with paintings and tapestries depicting myths and legends from long ago. Hanging from the ceiling were crystal chandeliers that were aflame and cast flickering shadows all over the huge room. In columns parallel to the walls were long wooden tables, clustered by various people all dressed in similar dark hooded robes. Only goblets and the occasional candle lined the tables.
A path was cleared down the center, padded by a soft luxurious rug that depicted yet another ancient scene. Only this one was on a much larger scale. An enormous being dominated the picture; it had a pure white coat sometimes jutting around its neck and shoulder, with a grey underside. It was a long necked, four legged beast. Crossing the midsection of its body was a golden when, with four jewels at each point. Its feet also ended with a point and were also tipped with the same four jewels. Sprouting from its head was a mane, much like a wisp of smoke; it was the same white with grey underside. Its face was dulled and hidden by a glare from behind as seventeen multicolored plates surrounded its golden wheel. The grand rug led to a pedestal on a raised platform, on which stood a single figure dominating the center of attention. The man was dressed similarly as the rest, with the exception of golden chains that hanging by his chest. His head tilted up, noticing the two teens as they entered the room.
“Luke!” “He bellowed, “Step forth and bring me the book!” he beckoned the boy, and completely ignored the girl. Luke did as he was told and walked across the elaborate rug and handed the bug to his father. All eyes were on him, watching his slow deliberate movement. The girl followed behind, not moving quite as slowly has her brother was. She was the only one in the room not wearing her hood up. After Luke reached the pedestal, and handed the book to his father, the two took a seat behind him.
“Brethren, we have worked and waited since nearly the creation for this moment. Now it’s finally here. The book I hold in my hands is the key to our success. One by one, all across the globe, the powers of the legendary children are slowly awakening. This book tells us everything we need to know, where they are, they’re strengths and there weaknesses. When the moment is right, we shall capture them and their bonded legend, and take their immense powers for ourselves. With those powers at our disposal, we shall create the ultimate Pokémon that not even Arceus can defeat and that will obey us and only us. Using its power we shall recreate the world in our image, we will become gods, and rule the new utopia we will create. I invite you all, to Project Legends!”
A thunderous roar exploded from the crowd. Everyone cheering for their cause and their leader, everyone except for one. The teenage girl simply rolled her eyes in disgust at her fathers plan. “This plan of yours is doomed to failure.” She announced when everyone finished cheering. This elicited loud gasps of shock from everyone in the room.
“Insolent girl! You dare to mock me, your own father?!” The man shouted
The girl stood up from her chair and calmly walked to center of the room, then she turned to face her father. “Oh I dare mock you.” She said with a smirk, “You’re a terrible excuse for a father, and it was because of you that our mother died. Others have tried similar things to what you have proclaimed, and all have failed. What makes you think it will be so simple to capture a Legendary Child, let alone a Legendary Pokémon? Even if you do succeed, in catching them all and obtain their powers, and make this ultimate Pokémon, what makes you think a being of such power will obey you and only you as you say? Like I said, this idiotic plan of yours is destined to fail, and when it does, I will be there, laughing as all of you suffer a miserable defeat!”
Her words angered the man. He clenched his hand into a fist, and then he pointed a finger at the young woman and shouted, “Guards seize her!”
Several large burly men also in hooded robes came out to seize the girl, but they failed. She vanished out of the room in a puff of smoke before they could reach, seemingly by a Psychic type’s Teleport. Her words left an impact on everyone else in the room. They began murmuring amongst themselves.
Noticing the concern amongst the crowd, the man addressed them again. “Do not believe my former daughter. She speaks nonsense, our plan will succeed. I will make certain of that.” He began to step down from the pedestal. “Now enjoy yourselves tonight, for tomorrow, the project begins.” With that, he left the room.
You are one of these Legendary Children (Ages 6-21) (You may also be a separate OC only if he/she would have something to do with the plot, if you have something in mind PM/VM me.)
Basically, these children have special abilities depending on their legendary. You can also communicate with the legendary via telepathy, Sharing this bond grants you some power over controlling the legendary. It’s not you’re Pokémon, but more of a partner of sorts. The yet unnamed villain group has begun a hunt for legendary children, so try not to get captured or killed before you meet up and train with your legendary. There are few who are aware of your existence, and few who are willing to help.
All standard Serebii RPG rules apply (Obviously.)
You may have powers, but do not overly abuse them. No Mary Sues and no God Modding.
Also, don’t control another person’s character unless they give you permission, or they are an NPC.
Try to be active, I understand everyone is busy, but please try your best to stay active, and if not, give someone else permission to control your character.
You can have as many characters as you’d like, but keep track of them all, and don’t go overboard.
Have fun. I appreciate creativity, and I don’t mind other people coming up with plot twists and stuff. However, if you are going to do something major, I would like to be in on it. PM or VM me.
Respect the GMs
Hometown: (You’re character should be from a town that relates to your chosen legendary (Ex. Ecruteak City for Ho-Oh’s child) or at least the region (Unova Legendary children should be born in Unova.) You do not have to be currently living there, but you have to have been born there. This is partially why you out of everyone else in the world are a Legendary Child to begin with.)
Pokémon (Up to six)
(This is to be done for each Pokémon they own.)
Legendary (They will be speaking so we need a general idea of how it acts.)
Gender: (I prefer giving the legendaries a gender to act off of. Referring to them as “it” makes them seem like cold robots, and they obviously aren’t.)
The legendary is not your parent! I understand calling them the child of *Insert Legend here* is confusing but that is not case.
I would prefer that Legendaries in a trio/quartet be played by three/four separate people, it’s more interesting that way. Duos however can be controlled by the same person.
You are not going to start off knowing you’re a legendary Child right away. You will discover it within the course of the story like everyone else. You will not have complete mastery of your powers until you have met and trained with your legendary.
I would like some creativity with the powers here. Don’t be boring and say Telekinesis and Telepathy if you are using Mew for example. Mew can do more than that, not to mention there are several Psychic type legendaries that can do this, how are you different from Deoxy’s child? Just don’t go overboard and be all powerful, come up with some limits/weaknesses if it gets that far.
For people that take the lake trio: Uxie represents Knowledge, Azelf represents Willpower, and Mesprit represents Emotion. I would like something in the abilities that represents that.
