From The Scroll of Alpha.
A long time ago before time or space existed, there was an egg.
Eventually the egg hatched, the being called itself Alpha, but the beings of one the worlds it created called it Areceus. But Arceus is but one of Alpha's many forms.
Alpha created the universe as we know it, creating many worlds and filling them with life. One of those worlds was filled with creatures called Pokemon, and arceus dwelled there for a while. But disaster struck, one of the beings that Alpha had created turned on him. It absorbed many of the other beings and attacked Alpha. Alpha decided to flee far out into the universe, but eventually it had to rest.
So it created a world for it to reside in, and hide from the creature. As time went by, Alpha created life on the world. It had liked the design that it had used on the other world and decided to use it here... with a few changes. The species was called Ralts, and they became the dominant species on the world, which they call Nillia, and they are constantly training and awaiting the arrival of the dreaded creature, which they call Omega.
Now the Ralts, are similar to the ones on the first world but not exact. This is who the Ralts of this world are:
The children are born, and the males will eventually become a Gallade and the females will become a Gardevoir. But that is where the similarities ended. Unlike the original Ralts, these can become any type (given to them at their initiation ceremony).
They will always be Psychic/other type. And another major difference is the fact that they can be any color, and their physical traits may change based on their type.
The Ralts Live in a floating city which they named Soaria. Soaria, is supported by an ancient Jewel called The Shard of Alpha, which gives them their second type during their coming-of-age ceremony, and helps the Ralts in various other ways. The buildings of Soaria are giant orbs that contain housing, water, food and other establishments.
the Ralts get around Soaria by bird, the most common bird is a Staraptor, but there are others, including the legendary birds: Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres, but these ancient birds are only passed down by specific family lines of Soaria.
Alpha knew that omega was going to find him eventually, but he expected for there to have been more time for him to regain his strength. So, Alpha divided up what power he had left to five Ralts.
Alpha: "I no longer have the strength to protect you, I give my power to the chosen, I will return after i have regained enough strenth, keep Omega at bay...and protect Nillia."
My name is Tao. I am a Gallade, one of 17 standing here, and we are all waiting for master Pi to come out and start giving the initiation speech. I look around at the other 16 Gallade and Gardevoir and can see the excitement on their faces. Eventually my eyes find Beta, my best friend, he must sense my gaze so he turns to look, and we both grin, knowing this is the first day of the rest of our lives.
I turn my attention back to the platform as master Pi walks out, and everyone in the room stiffens up. His old Gallade eyes look out over the crowd, taking us in, looking at each of us for a few seconds then moving on. His eyes finally fall on me, and they stay there for a full thirty seconds, then he begins to speak.
"Young ones," He said. "this will be the last time anyone calls you that. You are about to enter the chamber of the Shard of Alpha and receive your second type and become an official member of the Soarian society. I know you are all wondering, what type will I get? It's impossible to tell beforehand, but rest assured that you will get it. I will now take you in, one at a time to receive your types." As he finished speaking, he stepped off the platform and walked up to a Gardevoir named Theta, and gestured for her to follow him.
Theta followed him into the room and the door closed. We were all getting jittery, wondering what type Theta would walk out with, and what type we would walk out with later. Surprisingly, it only took about 5 minutes, and then Theta walked out with master Pi. Her solid white body had changed, she still had white on her, but spots had changed. She had spots that were yellow, and appeared to have lighting patterns on her. She looked around at us with a huge smile on her face, and raised her hand. We all looked closely at her hand and then we saw electricity dancing between her fingertips.
"I got Electric!" She said, even though it was obvious to all of us.
We all applauded for Theta. Getting electric, she would work in the power sphere, generating electricity and taking care of the Mareep flocks. All the jobs are hard, but I have been told that most of us will get jobs that we will enjoy, and I can't help wondering of the shard somehow knows what we like and tries to give us what we want.
Master Pi kept bringing us in, three of us went in and came back with flying, bug, and steel. Flying is a very cool job, you get to work in the aviary and raise the birds, even though you have to clean up after them its still cool. But that's not even the best part, you actually get WINGS! The Gallade who got flying tried to fly but crashed right back into the ground. Everyone laughed, but he wasn't finished, he tried again, and even though he didn't get very high, he still managed to hover for a few seconds and he landed without hurting anyone.
The one who got bug was pretty cool too. She had an exoskeleton on a few parts of her, like her hands, and she had two small wings on her back, she also tried to fly but I don't think she even left the floor. Someone who gets bug are in charge of our Combee's, they have to make sure the plants in the garden are pollinated. They also are in charge of the Silcoon, to get silk for some of our furniture. Not a bad job, but I wouldn't want to do it.
And finally, the one who got steel. She was pretty shiny when she came out, very shiny, as in cover your eyes or be blinded shiny. Steel types work in the construction guild with fighting and rock types, but steel types have a very...unique job. They must shed the steel off Steelix after they re-grow their steel coating. I don't know how the heck they do that, and I don't want to know.
And after those three went up, My friend Beta got picked. As he was walking up to the stage, he looked back at me and grinned. After he was in there for a few minutes, I started getting antsy, I really wanted to know what he got. Just the, the door opens, and a fireball shoots out.
Everyone ducked, and as it was about to hit the wall it just stopped in midair. Master Pi walked out with his hand up, and brought the fireball to him, and then put it out. Beta walked out of the room a few seconds later, looking embarrassed, but super cool in his new red with fire patterns. He walked off the platform and stood with the rest of the ones who had already gotten their type.
Two more people got picked, but I wasn't really paying attention. Each Time someone got picked and it wasn't me, I got more and more disappointed. I knew I shouldn't be, I knew I would get mine eventually, but still. What finally snapped me out of my funk was HER getting picked. HER. Nu. Nu is a girl that I've had a crush on for a long time. Her home sphere's orbit is very close to mine, so I see her a lot. She walked up to the platform and into the room, five minutes later, she walked out. Her hair was green and she had leaf-like patterns on her.
"Grass." Was all she said with a weak smile.
I guess she had been wanting something else. Working in the gardens could be hard at times, I know, because that's what my dad does, but its still a cool job. She would most likely be planting seeds, making them grow with her powers, and then harvesting the food. Not easy, but not ridiculously complicated.
Hearing my name snapped me out of my daze.
"Tao, its your turn."
Finally! I walked up to the platform and looked at master Pi. He turned around and started to walk into the room. As I was walking in I did the same thing that Beta did, I looked back and met his eyes. He had gotten over his embarrassment for the most part, and just looked excited for me. I turned back around and followed Pi into the room and the door shut behind us.
I was standing there for probably a full minute, just staring at the Shard. Master Pi walked up to the enormous jewel and put his hand on it. The second his hand touched the gem a bolt of light shot out of it and completely coated me. A warmth spread through my body and I could see my body changing color to a deep blue.
I was a water type.
You may recognize this fanfic, or at least the beginning. I posted the prologue about a year ago, but I never went farther than that.....so I'm going to continue it now.
