The year is 2033. Each pokemon game (not including Gen 6) events have taken place in the years they were released.
In past years, evil organizations have always been present, trying to overthrow balance and take over in their region. And with every organization, there is a trainer who won't stand for it. That trainer rises through the ranks, fighting battle after battle until they find their way to the top. In an epic battle, that one trainer rises above his opponent, disbanding the evil organization and saving the day.
But what if that trainer failed?
In the year 2015, a Team Shadow was born. They worked in secret underground bases in each region. They started to appear in each region early 2016. The one trainer from each region who had defeated the evil in their own region decided together to take Shadow on like they took their other teams. The 5 trainers started their war against Shadow, and in the beginning, it looked as if the 5 trainers had the upper hand and were to defeat Team Shadow. But in late 2016, the war was still going, and Team Shadow started to rise. One by one, each trainer fell. And one by one, each region fell to Shadow. First fell Unova, then Hoenn, then Johto, then Kanto, then lastly Sinnoh.
Team Shadow had control over every city in each region, and they made quite a few changes. There were guards constantly patrolling the streets, factories making supplies for the Shadow, and a curfew was set up- no one could be out after 9:00 without proper permission.
And there was no natural light- the sun never rose anymore.
In the dimensional plane of the Legendary Pokemon, a meeting was to be held to decide what to do. Being the crisis Team Shadow was, Dialga started to think if one of the other legendaries had started it. Knowing that Darkrai had attempted to destroy the world once, Dialga pinpointed her blame onto him.
During this one fateful meeting, Dialga stated she knew the culprit. She stated it was Darkrai, and he was going to attempt to destroy the world again. Many of the other legends, including Arceus, agreed with Dialga, ignoring Darkrai's protest.
Dialga proposed that as a punishment, Darkrai would be sent to the Earthly Plane to live in the world he had created. Arceus thought it over for a minute, but then agreed that Darkrai's punishment was fair. However, eight of the legendaries- Mewtwo, Jirachi, Giratina, Deoxys, Genesect, Regice, Kyurem, and Entei- stood up for Darkrai, saying no one had any proof that Darkrai was at fault.
This sent Arceus into a rage. No one had ever questioned Arceus's rule until now. As punishment for speaking out of turn and against the final judgement, the eight pokemon would be sent down as humans with Darkrai. He also added on to the original punishment, adding that they will be separated out across the Sinnoh region, and that their memories will be wiped out. They will be born as a human children, all on the same day.
Cresselia was horrified. She knew Team Shadow wasn't Darkrai's doing, but she was too afraid to speak out against Arceus. The day the eight pokemon were to be banished, Cresselia was able to talk to the eight. The told them that on their 17th birthday, she would be able to restore their memories of who they were, and could give them a dream on where to meet with each other. Cresselia told them that they are the only ones who can take Team Shadow down, and they have to prove their innocence and bring each region to peace.
You are one of these eight pokemon. Mewtwo, Jirachi, Giratina, Deoxys, Genesect, Regice, Kyurem, or Entei. You were born in a different city in the Sinnoh region, to a nice family (rare for the times, but Cresselia was able to make it happen). You have no idea you are a legendary pokemon.
1. Follow SPPF rules (duh).
2. This is PG-13, people, let's keep it that way.
3. A reserve will be held for a week. (UNLESS you give me a valid reason other-wise.)
4. At the beginning, only one pokemon is allowed with the character, preferably the type the character representing the legendary is, and it can't be a psudo-legendary.
5. NO FLAMING/TROLLING. Ever.
6. No godmodding, or making your character insanely-powerful, or making a Mary-Sue.
7. Let's start out with one pokemon (of your legendary's type, preferably). You can catch more as time goes on.
8. Please attempt to be active...

I would like it if everyone posted their name, legendary, and location at the beginning of their post, like this (doesn't necessarily have to be centered):
I know most people do that anyway, but I'm being the annoying reminder. Also: The first couple posts will be the afternoon and evening the day before their 17th birthday, and then the dream.
So, let's get this thing going! Have fun!
Canalave Library - Canalave City
Jarrith was sprawled out on a bean-bag reading his favorite book, muttering certain passages of it. The book was titled "The Legend of Darkrai," and for some reason, he was attracted to it. He read many other books, but he kept going back to that one, over and over again. He had just gotten to the fifth chapter when a girl poked him.
"Uh, mister? Why is your hair white?" the girl questioned. The girl has short blonde hair and blue eyes, and didn't look much over 7 years old.
Jarrith rolled his eyes. "I don't know, why is your hair blonde?" he snapped, getting back to his reading.
The girl just blinked at him. "My mommy had blonde hair like me. Does your mommy have white hair?"
"No," Jarrith sighed as he slammed the book shut and sat up. "My mother's hair is brown."
"So why is your hair white? And why are you wearing that?"
"Why do you keep asking me all these questions?" Jarrith yelled, his blue eyes locked on the girl.
The girl took a step back. "I... I was just wondering..."
"I'm just trying to read a book here!" Jarrith snapped back, standing up. He put the book back on the shelf and growled, "I'll be off now. Go back to your mommy or whatever."
Jarrith walked out of the building and started walking home. He waved to a guard, who glared at him the whole way. Eventually he reached his home, where his mother was making something for dinner. Jarrith grunted something unintelligible to his mother and trudged up to his room.
"Darkheart, go!" Jarrith said, throwing a pokeball. Blue light flashed, leaving a zorua lying on the floor. Jarrith scratched the zorua behind the ears and said in a whisper, "How are we gonna mess with the guards today?"
Darkheart only giggled.
