Floccesy town, a couple of months ago; A Volcarona, and two Stoutlands, witnessed how the fellow city of Aspertia burned down with such intensity.
The ones behind this chaotic act, the members of the infamous Hydra Gang, all retreated the area with a lot of stolen goods, and grins on their faces.

This is awful. Commented the normal types. How low will these Pokémon go to achieve their goals? They got a point; if this doesn´t stop soon, the dangerous group could cause even more damage to the already wounded Region of Unova. With no other choice, the Volcarona packed his things, said goodbye to the Stoutlands, and started his journey to defeat this nasty organization once and for all.

If I´m gonna do this, I better call for some allies. Thought the Bug type. Let's just hope they all made it.




With hours and hours of walking, our beloved group of Pokémon finally reached the end of the infamous Route 13, with smiles on their faces. Unfortunately, those happy expressions easily faded away, as they arrived to the town of Lacunosa. There´s not other path to go into; the Fifteen members had no choice but to cross the place, and fight the opposition.​

However, they noticed that the enemies Pokémon were already defeated, with most of the bodies having severe burns all over them. It was clear who was behind this; And their suspicions were correct, as Tommy and his gang were in town. ​

The Emboar was about to kill another random thug; But upon seeing Sebastian and the rest, he dropped his victim right away. No words were said, the two sides just stared each other intensely. The fight from last time, the death threats, and Gregory becoming a Crobata; these factors made this a very awkward encounter, nobody even considered trying to break the tension.​

Well, Isn't this wonderful?. That voice, it sounds familiar. The gang of morons have finally reunited. On the biggest house of the town, a Sneasel got out with a Cryogonal, in an attempt to break the ice.​

The Serperior, The Emboar, and The Excadrill. Shouted Walter. It's been ages since I saw all of you miserable scum. He was right, everyone encountered this Sneasel before: He lead the previous attacks against the communities. The Dark type was acting high and mighty, considering himself to be one of the leaders of The Hydra. But thanks to Gregory, they all knew that was far from the truth; A fact that Andrea didn´t hesitate to mention, just to Taunt him. ​

Walter got angry and ordered his Cryogonal, and the remaining thugs to attack both groups. In a surprising display: both Tommy and Denise easily defeated not only the Cryogonal, but also the enemy Golbat and Garbodor. The Eighteen Pokémon then quickly surround The Sneasel.​

So, you think you´re strong just by beating the weakest members of our group? He was laughing with sinister intentions. But when the boss arrives, he and his companions will make sure NONE OF YOU live another day. This was infuriating, several Pokémon had suffered because of him and this dreaded gang. ​

Walter then set his sights on Kevin. None of you. He said before trying to Slash the Bug Type; Luckily, Zorua push him aside, and the two avoided the attack. But, the Sneasel managed to escape.​

Kevin, Kevin, Are you alright? Said the Zorua in a terrified tone.​
Yeah, I´m fine. Replied the Karrablast- Thanks for saving me.

Everyone was upset about Walter getting away, but at least there were finally out of harm. But that feeling was short lived, there was one final foe in one of the houses. The Pokémon got out, and immediately collapsed on the floor. He was about to faint, but managed to get a glimpse of familiar faces.​

I´m so glad to see you again…. Sebastian. Said the Volcarona before passing out.​

The Serperior then rushed to help him, and tried to explain the situation to the rest: This Pokémon was the Ace Pokémon of Alder, former champion of Unova. This was quite a shock; such an iconic battler, still alive in these desperate times. They carried him to the Pokémon Center in attempt to cure him.​


Another hour later, and the group managed to restore the Volcarona back into full health. But the question still remaines: What was he doing in a dangerous place like this? The Pokémon was more than happy to explain.​

Sebastian and the others already knew about the Aspertia attack thanks to Lee, The group felt a little bit sorry for him. The Volcarona may had the best intentions, but his plans were impossible to accomplish: He was too old to fight on his own, most of the gym leaders and allies were already dead, The Hydra already controls a huge chunk of Unova with their forces. ​

He didn't stood a chance, and ended up captured and tortured in this very own town. But not all was in vain, as he discovered something amazing: Opelucid City was still active. As far as he knew, it was the only community standing up against the dangerous gang, and the only change they got for a safe haven. Some were skeptical about the existence of such group existing, but it was better than nothing.​

Tommy didn't want to spend more time with the group, so he and his two friends decided to leave. You three are going on your own, without us? The Volcarona claimed, unaware of the conflicts both groups had on the past. The Emboar didn't want to go through that again, so Sebastian had to be the one telling the bad news.​

Ohh, I apologize for that. Replied the Bug type. But In this dire situation, we need to set aside our differences and conflicts if we want to make it to the city.
He then set his sights on Gregory. If this Pokémon managed to evolve into a Crobat on his own, that means mutual respect and thrust is something possible. Also, we don´t truly know what lies ahead.

The two starters then reluctantly shake their….hands? to ensure that everything is cool, for now. If only the other starter were there, and this could´ve been a wonderful reunion with the iconic trio.​


The fights from earlier left everyone exhausted, a small rest was recommended before they move on; all while the Volcarona, Penelope, and Tommy´s Unfezant friend checked the maps and planned their plans for the adventure ahead. Some Pokémon mainly focused on healing and resting, others prefered to train, and the rest just had casual interactions with each other. ​

While they enjoyed their time off, Rodrick and Debra checked on the houses to see if there´s something of value. No food nor treasures, what they found was far more important: A huge pile of winter clothes. With the help of both Summer and Star L.A, the two normal types put all clothing in the middle of town, for all to watch and choose to wear. ​

Sebastian, Denise, Rodrick and Aaron were the only ones big enough to use any of the coats available. Gregory, Star L.A, Penelope, Trevor, and Kevin were the complete opposite; due to their small height, they could only wear some scarfs. And finally: Simon, Andrea, Trisha, and Summer had the choice to put some hats to cover themselves. Both Tommy´s team, Debra, Zorua and the Volcarona prefered not to wear any clothes, they were better suited to handle cold temperatures on their own.​

A few minutes after the break, Penelope gathered everybody to explain their plans. The good news is that if they follow the path as soon as possible, they will make it to Opelucid before it gets dark. The bad part, is that they have to confront one final obstacle: The Village Bridge.​

Sebastian (Serperior) Adamant Nature, Likes to Run
Penelope (Petilil) Impish Nature, Scatters things often

Gregory (Crobat) Jolly Nature, Often Lost in Thought

Simon (Reuniclus) Docile Nature, Mischievous

As you may have seen already, every upcoming chapter will now come with a small prologue taking place in different parts of the past, to flesh out some parts of the story that couldn´t be adress otherwise. Aside from that, this is a pretty small chapter, with not much to talk about.

However, next chapter will be something a little bit different than usual, so stay tuned for that.

It was a dark night on the majestic town of Undella. Our group of survivors were all sleeping, as they would have an intense journey next morning. ​

However, some Pokémon would have a hard time trying to rest; One of these was Kevin, who got scared of any upcoming danger they might come across at any moment. Luckily, his friend Zorua noticed his problems and tried to calm him a little bit.​

There´s no need to worry that much. We and the rest of the group will always have each other backs, so nothing bad could ever happen to any of us.

Come to think of it, they were really lucky to have so many nice people on their side: Sebastian and Simon care a lot about the group, Penelope is such a great strategist, and Denise and Gregory are some of the strongest fighters they ever saw. ​

As they stare at the sky, they began to wonder: What would they ever do, if those wonderful Pokémon were all gone.​


...

Back in the present, the Zorua was dozing off when he was awaken by Debra; The Sawsbuck was gathering everyone in the area to talk about something important. However, the only ones there were Zorua, Kevin, Rodrick, Aaron, Trisha, and Trevor. The Dark type quickly asked what happened to the others. ​

He wasn't the only one, as that was the main reason behind the meeting. Debra told the others about the situation: As you may have know, Sebastian and the others went ahead to check if the next path was safe. They were supposed to give us a signal to move along when the coast was clear.

That was a couple of hours ago, and no signal in sight.
Rodrick pints out with a serious tones. It's very obvious what happened to them.

This fact made the seven Pokémon very scared and concerned, they didn't knew what to do next. But the ones who had it worst were Trisha and Aaron,: the fact that Simon and Denise could be dead or worse had an impact on them. But, they couldn't just abandon them, their friends could be in serious danger. So, they all decided to go there, and see if they could rescue them.​



At the end of Route 12 lies one of, if not the most popular bridge in all of Unova: The Village Bridge. ​

As the name suggest, the humans somehow managed to make a small city on top of such huge construction. It would've been amazing to see it back then, in all of it´s beauty; but now, it's just another place ruined by the incident. ​

From afar, our heroes could observe the place, and they were all shocked for what they saw: The place was completely filled with Hydra members, they were everywhere; Some were guarding the entrances, some were dealing with other Pokémon, and some were even having their twisted way of fun. ​

The place was like their fortress. Such a shame; these scoundrels have a wonderful place for themselves, while other Pokémon couldn´t get a home.
But it wasn´t the time to get angry, the top prority was the search for their friends. First thing to do was to sneak inside the village; They hid somewhere near the entrance, and checked for anything useful. After a while, Trisha noticed most of the guards heading to the other side of the bridge. Eventually, when nearly all of the guards left the area, Our seven Pokémon use this opportunity to get closer. They all walked very carefully, trying not to get spotted. ​

A lot of progress have been made; but before they could get any deeper, a powerful Aura Sphere was thrown at them; The attack didn't hit anyone, for some reason, but it still caused some shock on the members: They all knew it, there was only one Pokémon in all of Unova who could use that move. And indeed, the attacker was none other, than a Lucario. ​

I'm really impressed you little shits could make it here. The fighting type appeared in front of them. However, did you really thought that you could all sneak past me? Of course, his species were capable of sensing the Auras of other beings. He was aware of their presence, before they even enter the village.​

Wait, if you knew we were here the whole time. Debra wondered. Then why you didn't tell the rest of your gang about us?

The Lucario just stood there quietly, setting up another attack; One could guess that being lock into guard duty didn´t allowed him to fight with anyone. But now that other goons were busy with something else, this was the only opportunity he could get.​

The seven Pokémon tried to escape; but the Lucario was stronger, was faster, and was far more vicious than all of them. For several minutes, they all suffered quite a beating while trying to evade The Fighting Type, who treated them like toys, hoping not to break them so quickly. The bout eventually reached the river, where they got an idea to defeat the foe. ​

Zorua, Kevin, and Trisha had to get on top of the fighting type, before he could counterattack. With that distraction, Debra used a Jump Kick right in the head; The attack wasn´t deadly, but at least managed to knock him unconscious. The seven Pokémon used this opportunity to run under the bridge, but got themselves into a scary situation: If somebody notice the Lucario´s Body, they will all be in a huge problem.​



As they were hiding, more and more goons were heading to the other side of the village. The group had to know what was going on, so Trevor flew over to look. It turns out, the goons were gathering to take down Sebastian and the others, who were all cornered in what it looked like an old basketball field. ​

The seven Pokémon wanted to help them, but there were several factors that prevented from doing so: They were far weaker than the opponents; The Hydra outnumbers them; and they couldn't even cross the river by themselves, the bridge could still be guarded. ​

With no other option, Rodrick suggested one alternative: Leave them behind, and save themselves. The rest couldn´t believe how selfish the Raticate´s idea was. Just think about it for a moment: They want us to be safe, that's why this happened. I'm sure they will understand if we move on.

He has a point, but still. After everything they have been through together, Rodrick just wanted to abandon them like nothing. ​
This caused Trisha to get angry, and to throw a Sludge at the Normal Type.​

I just can't believe you. How can you do this to our friends, to our family!

My only family died back at the dessert. Rodrick states, still in pain after the attack. And you know what, maybe I should've left a long time ago.

Come to think of it, The Raticate had pretty much no reason to stay with the group: He could take care of himself, didn't had much interaction with the other members, and all of the crazy experiences caused him nothing more than frustration. Give my regards to the others, but I'm done. With those words, Rodrick leaves the group. The six Pokémon didn't try to stop him, there was nothing they could do.​

But, hope still remained; while the rest were dealing with Rodrick´s departure, Aaron discovered something unbelievable: Right next to the bridge, the Lairon found multiples cages. These contained hundreds of Pokémon, most of them Water types. It was their only chance, but they need a plan. ​
To deal with the guards, Zorua transformed into the Lucario and ask them to check other places; The other five then had to free them up as fast as possible, it wouldn't take long before the enemies took notice. Upon being free, the water Pokémon decided to help the group out of gratitude.​

Meanwhile, Sebastian and the others were trying to fend off the enemies, with little to no result. That´s, until the water type began a riot and attacked all the goons they could. Our group was confused at first, but after seeing Debra and the others, they used the distraction to reunite and escape from the bridge.

Our group eventually reached Route 11; with losing sight of The Hydra, they could all finally have some time to breathe. This couldn't come up before due to the circumstances, but everyone was happy to reunite with each other. The wounds worried them a bit, but at least they were all alive. But most important, Debra and the others were now the ones who helped the group this time, and they were proud of it. ​

However, after a few minutes, Penelope noticed that Rodrick was missing. The Awkward emotionless silence of the six Pokémon was all the information needed to understand. To be honest, several members already saw it coming, even the Volcarona and Tommy knew about. But the least they could do is to respect his decision, and wish him luck whetever he is now.​

Well, the thing is that we are still together. Claimed Sebastian. And we are now very close to Opelucid.​

The Serperior´s words were heard from afar by a Golduck. She was with an Azumarill, and both were holding a small Roselia in their arms. It looked like they were some sort of parents with their child. The trio wanted to repaid the group for freeing them of The Hydra as well. They knew where the city was, just a couple of blocks away. Everyone rushed in there as fast as possible. The night has not fall yet, they could still made it.​


They didn't knew it yet; but what they found in there, would chance everything.​

Zorua, Just Zorua Hasty Nature, Proud of his Power.
Kevin (Karrablast) Lax Nature, Highly Persistent
Trisha (Trubbish) Hasty Nature, Often Dozes Off.
Trevor (Vibrava) Impish Nature, Capable of Taking Hits.

Previous / Next

I wanted to do something different with this chapter, as things were getting a bit stale and repetitive. So, I decided to give the secondary characters a chance to shine, while the main team deals with the battles at Village Bridge.

Gabriela, Ace, and Rosemary were my catches at Village Bridge, Route 11, and Route 12 respectively.

And speaking of Group Members, let´s talk about Rodrick; the main reason I made him leave was because he had no reason to stay in the Story.
In the last couple of chapters, he just stood there, without contributing much to the group. It was better to give his screen time to other characters.

I´m so excited for next week´s chapter, is gonna be an interestime time in Opelucid.

Opelucid City, a few months ago.

Like many of the places surrounding Unova, it was victim of the Legendary War: Some citizens were panicking due to the chaos, while others were doing their best to prevent as many casualties as possible. One of these people was none other than the Gym Leader himself, Drayden. This experienced trainer was setting up an evacuation plan, when he received the call from a fellow leader.

Drayden this is Elesa, can you copy me? Both individuals were happy to know that the other is alive, and were quick to exchanging information. Nimbasa City did not suffer a lot of damage, and Skyla is helping evacuate with her airplane. However, there were also bad news: Burgh is confirmed dead, and they lost contact with the other Leaders. And even worse, the league champion was missing.

I tried contacting him multiple times, to no avail. Drayden stated with a bit of frustration. He said that he went to his hometown to help, but then nothing.

Time was short, so they wished good luck to each other before signing out.

After the call; Iris, another Dragon specialist, arrived near Drayden to inform that everyone was ready. The remaining citizens needed to head to Lentimas in order to get out of Unova. They all got inside vehicles, their exit was imminent. The Dragon Master then made one final look at the City.​

For a place dedicated to the study of such Mythical Creatures, it was such an ironic fate to be destroyed by them.​


But, what the humans didn't knew is that a small Axew was watching alongside others of his kind. They couldn't handle with this wonderful place being left behind. Each and every single one of them made a bow: To guard this iconic city, even if it is the last one.

....​


Route 11, present day.​

After what it looked like days or traveling, Our group of traveling Pokémon finally arrived on the awaited Community of Opelucid. ​

With the troubles on Village Bridge, the majority thought they couldn't make it. This whole journey in general had such difficult moments; Rodrick, a long lasting member, was done with it and decided to leave. His departure hit hard on the remaining Pokémon, but they needed to move on and continue. ​

Thankfully, a small family guided them to the famous location. This trio consisted of Gabriela the Golduck, her husband Ace the Azumarill, and their daughter Rosemary the Roselia.​

We really appreciate your help, We couldn't have done it without you

There´s no need for that. Replied Gabriela to Sebastian. We should be the ones who should thank all of you for freeing us from The Hydra.

Forgive me for asking. Penelope was a little concerned about the family wellbeing. But how did you three ended up there?

We were also heading to Opelucid. Answered Ace in an awkward manner- And we didn´t knew of their presence; Such a terrible mistake. This statement caused a moment of uncomfortable silence among the group, specially with Gregory and Denise.​

How can they be so idiotic to be trapped in a camp full of dangerous creatures? Denisse made a comment about this behavior.​

Then Again, we ... also got trapped by them. Replied the Crobat nervously. He is lucky to be a victim as well, otherwise she would've killed him right there.​



Opelucid looked more like a fortress than a city: There was a huge wall surrounding the whole place, guards were everywhere, and the only entrance was a huge gatedoor. Diplomacy was the safe choice of action; The guard captain happened to be an Altaria standing on the top. Sebastian and the others tried their best to explain their situation as calm and brief as possible. After minutes of careful listening, the Altaria made a decision.​

I need to talk to somebody. You just wait there for a moment.

He went inside the city, probably to call for some backup. The group already expected a fight, they allprepared to defend themselves and escape. ​

That is, until the gate opened. Go ahead and enter, But don´t do anything funny. Our group proceed with the indications, under the watch of the guards.​



Inside the barrier, all the Pokémon could see the beauty of all of the buildings; They may look old, but it has a charm that cannot compare to other places they've explored on their journey. They were awaited in the center of the City by a small group of Dragon types, with a Haxorus leading them all.​

Greetings strangers! My name is Hector, and welcome the the City of Opelucid!

Our group was a little bit nervous, most of them never saw a huge amount of Dragons in person; Not even the Volcarona recognized them. But the one who got it harder was Aaron, he trembled in panic upon looking at the Haxorus and stayed behind Denise. Hector asked what's wrong with him; Sebastian replied that he´s uncomfortable with...new people. After that, they didn't waste time thanking The Haxorus and company for opening the gate.​

Wow, wow, hold up in there. It´ll be our pleasure helping you out, but we cannot let outsiders in just like that.

Hector then mentioned that the only way they could be allowed to stay was to pass the oldest test in the book: An official Gym Battle. ​
Eyebrows were raised, but what other choice did they had. Of course, nobody should battle after such a hard journey. Hector and his personnel guided them to the Gym, so they could rest a little and prepare themselves.​



Even in a city filled with ancient buildings, the gym really stood out among them all: The giant heads of two Dragons in Black and White brought a sense of fear among most of the 21 Pokémon, even more so than the actual dragons around there. ​

Which leads to their next problem, how on earth would they defeat these powerful creatures: None had the type advantage. and probably weren't powerful enough. Sebastian had the type disadvantage, Andrea and Gregory wouldn´t even considered it, not even Tommy and his gang had the confidence. And that's when both starters remembered to ask for the Volcarona for advice.​

It´s been ages since I've participated in an official league battle, so I have no advice for you. Answered the Bug Pokémon. But what I can tell you is that the challengers must control themselves, and handle the difficulties if they want to succeed.


Time was running short, they had to make a choice. Without a second thought, Denise raised her voice and began calling them out.​
The Dragon Types may be strong, but they all survived multiple life and death situations in the past. If we managed to stay alive until now, then we can defeat a bunch of overrated creatures. She even volunteered to be the one who would fight against them. ​

This was such a weird moment; Denise, who did not considered them as friends, does all she can to motivate them.​

Don´t get the wrong idea. The Excadrill said while trying to distance herself from them. It's just that I hate seeing you in such pathetic state.


However, they still needed at least two more volunteers to began the fight. Simon was the first one to join. But the other one was a shocking one, as Star L.A raised her hand with much enthusiasm. Not even Summer expected this, but they guessed it´s better than nothing.​


...​


Time was up, they all needed to head to the duel. The battlegrounds were in yet another giant statues of Black and White Dragons that reached all over the rooftop. Rules were simple: each side will have three Pokémon, the battle will be one-on-one, each side may switch Pokémon or even heal them, the team that defeats all opponents wins the match. ​


Drake, you´re first. Said Hector to a Druddigon, while our group sent Denise. ​

By looking at Drake, the Excadrill knew that it would be hard to knock it out with a single attack. She climbed into one of the dragon statues to earn some time, with the Druddigon quick on following her. After gaining a decent distance, she used a Sword Dance to get some extra power. ​

The Dragon eventually reached her, and used a Revenge attack on her; She didn't hurt him yet, so the attack only did moderate damage, nothing she hasn´t take before. With a single Earthquake, one of the opponents was down, two more to go.​


Next opponent was Flint the Flygon: Ground type weakness, and with the previous injuries, Denise had to get out of there ASAP; She returned with the group, and Star L.A immediately entered the ring; Sadly, Flint took advantage of this and used an Earth Power on her. ​

The attack didn't kill the Starmie, but left it in a a rough situation. Heal or switch, either way would have it´s serious consequences. The others told her to retreat, but The Water Type ignored them. Star L.A then positioned itself to brace for an attack. ​

Flint didn´t hesitate and went towards her with a Crunch attack. Star spinned the back very fast to generate strong wind. Flint got caught in the breeze, and he noticed the temperature dropping: Star unleashed a powerful Blizzard, strong enough to defeat the Flygonin one hit.​


Hector was impressed by the perseverance of the Starmie, and decided to join in the fight, to become the final opponent. ​

Upon entering the ring, he began climbing upon the black dragon statue. Star L.A knew that Blizzard won't hit the target again, It was Denise turn once again. The Excadrill climbed the other statue, and prepared to set up some Swords Dances. Hector didnt´t fall behind, and set up Dragon Dances as well.​

Both Pokémon spend some time dancing around. But after a while, The group began noticing something weird about this: Why would the leader of the community entered into a battle where he could potentially die, or at least get injured.​

Then, the words of Volcarona began to resonate on their mind: They must not kill him, or they would fail the test. ​

They delivered the news to Denise, and she responded by sending an Earthquake to Hector. The Haxorus lost his foot with the attack and fell off the statue. Luckily, the Excadrill managed to grab on him before he crashed.​


Witnessing this heroic act, Hector declared his defeat in battle. Our group won the Gym Battle, and passed the test; As a symbol of this achievement, Hector gave the group a single Legend Badge; they could only be allowed inside the city with that shiny piece of Metal. ​

Most of them were surprised to see the badge in such a good state; but the one who was surprised the most, is Sebastian. As a starter Pokémon, his only purpose was to help collect them; it felt very surreal to have one in his reach after everything he went through. ​

Sebastian, are you alright? Penelope´s call managed to snap him back to reality; he is fine, for now.​

But that didn't mattered now, the group finally found a safe place. Everyone could be safe, they could be happy at last. ​
But, How long will it take for history to repeat itself?​

This was a fun Chapter, as I somehow managed to put an actual Gym Battle in my Story.
The battle itself was a surprise to say the least: The Druddigon and the Flygon were fairly challenging, but the oddest Pokémon was the Haxorus: That Dragon type was setting up Dragon Dances like crazy, without even trying to attack. Luckily Denise managed to defeat it in one move.

Oh yeah, before I forget: There will be a small extra Chapter next week alongside the regular update, so Stay tuned.

Today we have two updates in one.

After passing the gym leader battle, our group of survivors were finally allowed at the community of Opelucid City, and given a small house to live in. ​

Such a long journey all the 21 Pokémon had over the last couple of days, they deserved a long time of rest.​
They slept for hours; for the first time in a while, they felt safe enough to let their guards down. All the past troubles really tired them out, and couldn´t worry about any future problems they might run into.

However, not all of them could sleep peacefully: Sebastian suddenly woke up in the middle of the night. Ever since the fight, the Serperior began feeling weird and unusual. He tried to return to sleep, but his body and mind refused to.​

With nothing else to do, Sebastian went outside for a walk, all while staying quiet to don´t bother the rest of the group. Before heading to the door, he couldn't help seeing them all comfortable and in a peaceful state. But, he also noticed one of them was gone: Penelope. ​

That's odd, it´s not of her to leave at nightm so he checked around the place just to be sure she didn't disappeared.​


After a few minutes, The Serperior eventually found her on the top of their residence. She was just standing there quietly, looking at the city. Sebastian wanted to ask her if there was something wrong, but a part of him prefered to let her enjoy this moment on her own. ​

This caused some small conflict that prevented him to move at all. He wasn't even silent, just stood there trembling without talking.​
I know you are there, Sebastian. Said The Petilil after noticing his presence.​

The Starter got a little bit embarrassed and tried to leave, but Penelope told it was ok, He wasn't being a bother. ​
She just wanted to have some time alone, to enjoy the sight of the city in peace.​

He already understood the situation, and tried lo leave in a nervous matter, but something was up with him. She was aware of this, but the Serperior didn't want to bother her with his issues. She reassured he wasn't´a bother, and told him to take a seat. ​

On the edge of the rooftop, the Serperior could appreciate how beautiful the city was, with all the illumination that fitted well with the night. Sebastian then admitted that he's been feeling weird after earning the gym badge. That piece of metal somehow brought him memories of his former life.​

Before all of this, I was told that my purpose in life was to help collecting this things. And now that I have one, I began feeling some sort of conflict within myself that cannot be properly explained. I never expected that any of this stuff could happen to me. You can clearly see a sense of discomfort and insecurity within Sebastian. He wasn't sure of his purpose here, that badge was messing with his mind.​

Well, if it makes you feel any better. Replied Penelope. I also never expected to be the one leading an entire group of Pokémon alongside a Starter Pokémon. So you are not the only one uncertain about his role in this crazy world.

Sebastian smiled at her statement, and began feeling silly for thinking like that. After all, nobody expected any of this crazy experiences to happen.​


You know, I always wanted to ask. Questioned The Starter. How was your life before all of this?
I´m not really sure myself. Penelope never told much of her story. I always lived in Castelia since I was a child, way before Lawrence took over.

The two grass types then wondered about Rodrick, who just left the group very recently.​
I understand why he would leave us. Said the Petilil. He wasn't the same since Wilson´s death.​

But I wish he at least said goodbye to us. Continued the Serperior- Let's just hope he's Ok where he is-​


The whole situation was getting a little bit awkward, So Penelope tried to light things down a little bit:​
Well, despite all the crazy things that happened to us, I'm still glad to be with you, and with the others.-​

Yeah, me too.


The two then spend the rest of the night talking about several kind of subjects: From all the nice memories they had, to their relationship with the other members, to their near death experiences, to what would've happened if both stayed in their respective hometowns.​
They talked about any subject they could think of, just for the sake of killing time, and have a great time doing it. ​

Their conversation lasted for so long, they were able to witness the sunrise. Both of them were glad to see such a magnificent event with each other. It was such a refreshing moment for them to express their opinion, and get closer along the way. This motivated Sebastian to say the following to the Petilil.​

Thank you Penelope. Thank you for all the wonderful things you did for us. Me and the others wouldn't made it this far without your knowledge

Even when expecting such a compliment from the Serperior, the Petilil couldn't help but to feel some sort of joy; So, she returned the compliment.​
Hey, I´m not the only one who kept things together. You also suffered a lot of things, just to ensure our wellbeing. I mean, some of them were problematic and morally questionable, but your heart was in the right place.

In the end, both got a little bit tired, and went inside to return with the others; to return with their family.​

Oh Yeah, I almost forgot. Sebastian mentions. Hector wants us to meet him at the gym for some sort of meeting.

We better be there after waking up. Penelope Replied. And make sure we don't screw it up this time.

After hours of walking, a trio of normal type Pokémon arrived on the Town of Lacunosa. The place looked empty, like if a conflict happened there recently. Something was up, and they needed to find out what exactly.

Lee, this place could be a good home for us. Says a Watchog. I don´t understand why we should keep walking.

Look pal, I´m also as tired as you. Replied a Stoutland. But we need to make figure out why nobody is in here.

As they investigate around, a Cinccino began hearing voices from back where they came from. Someone was approaching, and in big numbers; The three normal types hid in one of the houses, and waited for them to get away.

For what they could see without being spotted, a Weavile was saying things to another Pokémon: That group of morons I talked you about must´ve crossed the Bridge already.

If that's the case.
Said an onminous. Then let's see how powerful those Pokémon really are, right Henry. The three Pokémon didn´t knew who were those people, but they were really scared. However, before being able to escape, they were spotted by an Absol and two Pawniards.

One of you report this to the boss. Said the Disaster Pokémon. Looks like we have some intruders on our territory-


...

Back on Opelucid City, our group of survivors woke up after several hours of rest. This feeling was weird, it was their first time to wake up in the insides of a house. And to make it even more weird, they were all awaited with some breakfast.

Good morning everybody. Gabriela was cooking large sums of food. We hoped you had a nice sleep.

We thought that you wanted something to eat- Continued Ace while holding Rosemary on his arms- So we made some breakfast with Summer and Star L.A- In the back of the kitchen were the two Psychic types wearing chefs outfits.

However, some members also noticed that at least two Pokèmon are missing: Penelope and Sebastian.

Your friends left a note earlier. The Golduck states. They were going to a meeting with the Emboar and the Volcarona.
They all were concerned with the two Grass Types leaving like that; but had to ignored it and eat since it's been ages since they had a proper meal.

Few minutes later, a small Axew knocked their door and gave them a list with the activities for the day: Some Pokèmon had to investigate an abandoned mall on the other side of the City; and the others must do various tasks to help maintain the city. Everyone was excited to spend their first day in here; everyone, except Denise. The Excadrill just stood there with a mad expression on her face.

Miss Denise, It's everything Ok? Asked Aaron.
I`m fine. Responded the Ground type. It's just weird that you all quickly accepted living in a place that you don't know anything about.

She had a point: All other communities, including hers, has something bad that caused their collapse. But ever since getting here, nothing bad happened. It was a lost cause try to reason with her, so they all went out to continue with their day. The only ones who stayed were the parents, Andrea and Aaron.

Denise wasn`t in the mood for relaxing, so she headed outside the building. The Lairon then asked where she was going, only for her to respond that she will be going for a walk. In reality, the Excadrill was going on a search for any shady stuff on the city. As she exited the building, she was followed by Andrea. The absol wasn't invited, but she just went with her due to boredom. And like that, the two Pokèmon went on their mission.



The group members who went to search the mall were Simon, Trisha, Zorua, Gregory and Debra. The rest went on to do other kinds of duties.

The abandoned place was located on Route 9. It seemed like another dead end, as the entrance of the other side has collapsed. And to make things worse, the outsides had a few rough looking Pokémon. Gregory was scared, but the others reminded him that those Pokémon were just hanging around.

The place was called The Shopping Mall Nine, and it was a complete mess: All of the stores and merchandise were all over the place. But the weirdest stuff was that the place was empty; aside from a random Liepard eating of the trash, nobody was in there.

While searching, Simon told to Trisha and Zorua about how this mission reminded him of the time they trained together back on Driftveil. Both Pokémon were happy to hear that, but they were also happy about the fact that they were alive after the incident of the bridge.


A few hours passed, and they didn't found anything, the place was completely ransacked of everything available. The only place unexplored was a small storage room on the base floor, where Simon sense one Pokémon hiding. In fact, inside the place, was a lot cleaner than the rest of the mall.

The missing Pokémon was none other than a small Minccino, who desperately tried to keep things in order. The normal type saw Trisha, and began to panic even more. Their species were known for the clean obsession, but this was ridiculous. Debra tried to calm her down, saying things will be alright.

We will get you out of this horrible place. The Sawsbuck was putting the Minccino on her back- Just close your eyes, and don't open them until we get out of here. With everything checked out, the six Pokémon returned back to the city for a proper break.


...​


Inside the gym, Denise and Andrea sneaked in to see for any shady stuff inside the society. From what they could see, Hector was still on the meeting with Sebastian and the others; With the tone of the conversation, it didn't seemed to be a comfortable one.

As you may have known, that gang was a serious problem for all of us ever since they formed. The Volcarona was the one talking. But we are more worried about what they might do in the future.

We`ve been fending them off our city for months.
Hector replies. And none of the attacks were as serious as this. The Haxorus then showed a random letter, which was read by everyone present at the meeting. Tommy and his pals were infuriated, while the others couldn't believe what they saw.

Should we tell the others about this? Asked Sebastian. I mean, they are all very happy and peaceful here.

It would be only a matter of time before they learn the truth.
Replied Penelope. Specially if THEY follow soon on their threats

Denise heard enough, and just left the place. Andrea asked what she is gonna do, and the Excadrill just walked. She didn't want to deal with this.


…​


It was late at night when everyone in the group reunited inside their house to eat. The water type couple made an awesome dinner.

While eating, Kevin and Trevor told about how they helped with carrying the food and clean couple of things: Those were the only tasks they could do because the Karrablast was small, and the Vibrava was kind of a slacker to be given more serious tasks.

Debra also used this time to introduce the new member of the group: Minnie the Minccino. Everyone seemed happy, very happy. Sebastian and Penelope were concerned if this was a good moment to tell the bad news. Denise and Andrea noticed this, but prefered to remain silent.

They had to know, before it's too late. Listen everybody, We have some important things to tell you.

However, before anything could be said, an outside guard informed to Hector that a Wounded Pokémon has required assistance.
The Pokémon was none other than a single Stoutland.

Lee? The Serperior shouted. What are you doing here?

Everyone...you must prepare yourselves.
The Normal type was on the brink of fainting. They´re coming here, and they´re coming in big numbers.
Just when he told that, everyone could hear the sound of a building collapsing.

WE´VE BEEN BREACHED, TAKE COVER!

All Pokémon in the city got outside to see that the main entrance door was destroyed by a powerful attack. Hector and the others went and see who was responsible for breaking their line of defense. But what they saw, left them all in a state of shock:

A giant Hydreigon, surrounded by an army of tough Pokémon.

Good job tearing up that fence Henry. An Eelektross stood right next to the Pseudo Legendary. And here I thought this worthless community might be a challenge for our superior strength.

It was official, The Hydra had invaded the city.

As for Chapter 39, the group gets to enjoy their day at Opelucid, for as long as it last.
I can´t wait for the next the fortieth Update on this run, things will never be the same after that battle.

Thanks a lot for reading, and I´ll see you next time.

There's no doubt, the Legendary war was a tragic event that caused the death of millions across the entire region of Unova.

But another thing it did was to deeply wound those who managed to survive; among these poor individuals, was Alder. After evacuating all the remaining civilians, the former league champion secluded himself on his house in Floccesy Town. He blamed himself for letting this happen, for not being able to stop it; so, he just stood there as punishment. Not even his own Pokémon convinced him to leave, and only his ace Volcarona stayed with him.



Days have passed, and his condition was getting worse. All he did all was was sit in the dark, contemplating a letter from some random person recalling the events of this stupid war; No food, no sleep, nothing. However, in one instance, the Volcarona knocked on his door.

-What do you want now?- He asked.

Upon opening, the Bug Type was holding an unconscious Snivy; the starter Pokémon was heavily wounded, but was still breathing. Alder wanted nothing to do with this; but after feeling a sorry for the grass type, he tried to heal him. The Grass type was still unconscious, but at least he will survive.

-Take him back where you find him- Said Alder, -And please, don´t come back here again.-

The Volcarona obeyed his orders, and left the Snivy in the City of Aspertia. That's the last he saw of him, and began living in the Clock tower ever since.


...​


Black Hydra invaded the city of Opelucid, and they were out for blood.

All residents of the city, including our group, were paralysed at the sight of the Powerful Hydreigon, who destroyed their defenses like it was nothing.
-So, where's that leader of yours?- Said an Eelektross- I want to have a small talk with him-

They didn't knew what to do, but Hector ordered Sebastian to get everyone to a safe place, while he deals with this himself.
-You arrived earlier than expected- Said the Dragon type- What do you degenerates want?-

The electric type laughed a little bit at the cliché that a Dragon type was the one in charge, and just offered him the chance for everyone to join their gang, with their traditional cost.

Hector knew that even if they agreed, these guys will not follow their words. So, the leader just prepared himself for an inevitable battle.
-I can't believe you're throwing your life away- Said the EleFish Pokémon sarcastically, while pointing at the Haxorus- Go for it Henry, He's asking for it-

Hector went first with a Dragon Tail, but the Hydreigon endured the attack despite the type weakness; However, this got him really angry and expressed it in the form of a powerful Frustration. Hector was thrown into a building and got severely wounded.

-Last chance to give up hotshot- said the Eelektross- If you piss him up even more, even I won´t be able to control him-

The Haxorus refused to fall, he wouldn't let this scumbags do whatever they wanted; He must win, even if it kills him.
With his remaining strength, he prepared another Dragon Tail.

-Your funeral- The Hydra Leader snapped his fingers- You know what to do Henry.

The Hydreigon then covered in a blue flare, and was heading towards Hector; this was his Dragon Rush attack, and the results were catastrophic: Hector was rammed into the same building, but now it collapsed all over his body. Henry came out fine, but the other Dragon type didn´t get up.

All the members began crying; a highly respected leader, and one of the nicest Pokémon they ever met, have passed away.



The Leader, on the other hand, just laughed, he couldn't believe the leader of such persistent community fell so easily.
-And here I thought that this would be a challenge. You guys can take care of the rest, I still need to get things ready for our plan-

-Master Elliot- Walter tried to convince his boss to stay.- You can't just leave like that, there´s still all those bastards that need to be killed-

- Are YOU giving me orders?- Elliot then strangled the Dark type- You do realize that the only reason you´re still breathing is because I fucking allowed you to. So if you don't want to join the Dragon buried in rubble over there, I recommend you to be more grateful-

Walter was freed, and he kneeled before Elliot, as he and Henry leave the area. While doing that, the electric type managed to catch a glimpse of Sebastian; he laughed after looking such a pathetic starter, and continued his way.

-You heard the boss- The Weavile says- Let's tear this place apart-

There were a lot of dangerous Pokémon causing chaos in the city. All of the members still couldn't believe the raw power they had at their disposal.

But the one that got it worse was Gregory; the sight of both leaders, and such violent death caused him to relieve some of his traumas, he got paralysed out of fear. Sebastian saw this, and told Debra to take him and the others to a safe place. In the meantime; the Serperior, Denise, Simon, Star LA, Lee and Tommy´s group will try to fend off the enemies.

But for some reason, Andrea also joined in the fight; The Absol claimed that it could be a fun thing to do. And to top it off, the security guards also helped with the battle; they all wanted to avenge their fallen leader. And like that, all those Pokémon began to repel all those intruders.

Most of the thugs were Poison types, Denise and Simon had the upper hand. During the conflict, Sebastian was tackled by an angry Watchog, who wanted to Rip his throat out. -You know something Sebastian. Ever since you beat us in Aspertia, I always wanted to kill both you, and that asshole Patrick-

The Serperior was confused by that statement, until he recognized the Watchog as Lee´s former friend; and by looking at the bloody White and Grey fur stuck in his teeth, the grass type knew exactly what he did.

The Watchog was bitting very deep into Sebastian´s body; and in a desperate attempt to make the pain stop, The Serperior pushed him away and went for the kill with a Leaf Blade. This made him feel bad: not because he killed someone, but for reminding him of the very first friend he ever had.

Lee also felt bad for the death, but they both needed to step that aside, and continue fighting.



A few hours have passed, and the group managed to take down more than half of the enemies. Tommy and his two friends managed to defeat multiple Pokémon by themselves. However, both the Unfezant and the Simipour were victims of a sudden attack. The Emboar saw his partners being heavily injured, and realized that the ones behind the ambush, were Two Pawniards.

-Oh no- Lee states, with a panic in his voice- If they are here, this must mean....-

The Stoutland was interrupted by the arrival of another Absol, who join in with the Pawniards. Unlike the other members, this Absol had a more cold and threatening look. Tommy somehow recognized the Dark Type, it's like he saw him somewhere before.

-Hehehehe- Walter laughed- I´d like to introduce you, to one of the three strongest members of the Hydra-

With the help of the Absol, Walter and other remaining thugs quickly surrounded the group.

All of the allied forces could defeat the minor members, but somebody needed to fight the Dark types; Denise offered to take the Weavile, and Andrea always wanted to interact with another one of her species.

The enemy Absol sent the Pawniards to use Metal Claw on Andrea, but she dodge both attacks and countered back with a well timed X-Scissors. The other Absol wasn't having it, and used Slash, but she also dodge it while taunting him with a Swords Dance. The trio kept attacking her, but she kept dodging them, and kept mocking them.

In the meantime, Denise managed to defeat Walter´s Cryogonal buddies. Andrea, however, got more and more careless because of her increased ego, and was hit by the Absol´s Slash; the move did not caused critical damage, but made her to bleed out and fall of the floor. Denise tried to help her, but Walter didn´t allowed her by throwing multiple Ice Shards at her.

-I told you that nobody will be spared from our power- Walter continued with his attack while insulting her and the others- You'll all die painfully for messing with us, just like all of your former friends- The Excadrill was pissed after hearing how this asshole spoke shit about them, and aimed a vicious Metal claw right on his face.

The Weavile screamed in pain, the attack went to his left eye. And to add insult to injury, Andrea stood up and deeply wounded the Absol with X-Scissors. This caused both Dark types to retreat, while the rest of the goons were being killed by the allied forces.



The fight was over, and Sebastian was quick to check if everyone was alive: All of the fighters made it out, with some minor wounds; and The others were safe and sound after hiding in the houses, Debra got to threat Andrea´s bleeding before she passed out.

The ones that didn't made it, however, were Tommy´s friends: Both Sid and Peter were killed by the Pawniard´s attack. The Emboar got really upset at this; when Sebastian asked if he was OK, he refused to talk to him or to anyone, and just went out of the town.

The fight may be over, but the panic still continues, everyone began to panic and were very paranoid about what might happen in the future, about what might happen to them. The only ones who didn't panic were Sebastian, Penelope, and Denise; not because they weren't afraid, but because they knew what was going to happen.

And that's the right moment for the Grass Type to finally tell the bad news: In a letter Hector received recently, The Hydra stated that they will began their crusade to make sure they are the only authority left in Unova, now that all mayor communities and groups are about to be destroyed.

If any Pokémon wanted to survive under their domain, they have to give up all their resources, and swear eternal loyalty to the Hydra.
Blood will be spilled, and nobody would be spared from their wrath.

They only had ten days until they began with their plan; only ten days to prepare themselves; but most importantly, only ten days for them to be with each other. What are they all going to do now?

Like I said, things won´t be the same after this chapter.

Now that the group have met face to face with the leaders of the Hydra, and fully aware of their plans to rule Unova, They´ll have to make some tough decisions, for the sake of themselves, and the rest of the region.

I can´t believe we made it this far; and what better way to celebrate this achievent, with one of my favorite chapters I wrote so far.
With my favorite parts being the battle of Hector vs Henry, and Andrea finally making her battle debut by making a fool out of the other Absol.

I hope you stay tuned; because next chapter will mark the start, of the Final Arc of the Run.

Thanks a lot for reading this run, and I´ll you a nice day.

Winter, one of the most cruel and unforgiving seasons of the year.

The sky has a bleak look, even when the sun rises; the snow makes it difficult to travel around any place; but most important; not a single living being can endure the cold temperatures without any sort of change, or without suffering.

That was the situation for Sebastian. This single Serperior was shivering with no signs of stopping, all while pulling a rope with his mouth, holding multiple pieces of wood. The Grass type was shedding tears, but not because of the pain; He was alone, nobody was there to help him, nobody was there to ease those awful feelings.



But to understand his situation, we must go back one day earlier: To the day when everything took a turn for the worst.

It all begins on the iconic city of Opelucid: The infamous group of Black Hydra made a brutal attack on the surviving community, and now they are planning to invade all of Unova to claim it as their own personal playground. None of the members took it really well, and they all panicked immediately.

It was understandable, but that didn't make it less painful to watch. Everyone on the group took it in different ways: Kevin, Aaron, Gregory, Minnie, and Rosemary´s family got overwhelmed with fear and regret; Denisse and Trevor, just acted like it was a normal thing; the other members however, just felt sad about all of this. Even Lee and Victor weren't safe from this. The only ones not present were Debra and Andrea, who went on to heal themselves.

The eighteenteen members then split up to resolve their emotional conflicts on their own,wouldn't be helpful for anyone to stay there and lose it.

Sebastian and Penelope were the only ones in the middle of the road. After dealing with tough situations on their journey, they all felt completely powerless against this. The Petilil wanted to take care of the problem, and the Serperior really wanted to protect the other members; both willing to do whatever it takes to achieve their goals.

That's when the Grass types came up with the proper idea to get rid of the Hydra, once and for all.


....​


Sebastian continued carrying the wood across the cold land; during the walk, the Serperior could see a small sign indicating the name of the place: It was the infamous Route 13. He traverse through a path near the river, as if the temperature couldn´t be any lower for such a humid area.

After some intense minutes, the grass type finally arrived near a campfire. There, he was awaited by five different Pokémon, but he couldn't recognize who they were, the trip really tired him out; The only one he identified, was a familiar looking ground type.

-You took your sweet time with this- Denisse helped him with the logs- Let's just hope this keeps us warm for the rest of the day-



Back in the past; It was very late at night, the group just gathered together to have dinner.

The concerns did not lower a bit, and everyone just ate in silence; Nothing was made to break this terrible silence. Not all of them were there, Debra and Andrea still didn´t returned from the infirmary.

To make things more uncomfortable, they all just returned from a funeral dedicated to Henry and all other fallen victims of the attack. The two grass types looked at each other, maybe this wasn't a good idea; But they would have to deal with this eventually, so the two hold on to each other, and gathered up the courage to get their attention.

The other members cooperate and began listening to the plan:

We just learned from some of the citizens that there's a rebel community of water Pokémon located in the abandoned city of Humilau. We could try to convince them to assist us. Unfortunately, their hideout is very deep into the Hydra´s territory; and to avoid being detected, we have to send ... a small number of us in there; while the rest stays hereto help with the defenses of this city, and be safe.

This was an outrage, what they suggested was simply a suicide mission; Nobody liked the idea, not even the grass duo themselves.
The only one who was willing to give it a chance, was none other than Victor.

-I don't really like the idea as much as all you, but what other choice do we have- The Volcarona states with a bit of frustration-It's either that, or see how this beautiful land is destroyed by yet another war- In the end, they all agreed with the plan.

Sebastian indicates the Pokémon should volunteer for such dangerous mission, and he was the first to sign up; This was a difficult choice, not all of them were strong enough for a task like this, and they were fully aware of those weaknesses.

That's when Denisse became the second one to volunteer, since she was planning to kill those pricks anyways; A lot of them, specially Aaron suggested her to think it a little bit. The Excadrill ignored their advices, and cruelly reminded them she was only a temporary ally, and this was the chance she was waiting for since Driftveil.

She then lied about her never considering herself as a true member of this group, even if deep inside she knew that was bullshit.

Simon and Star also join with them, against Trisha and Summer´s wishes. But the most shocking of them all, was Gregory´s; it really hurts him to fight against them, but he won't forgive himself if more Pokémon end up being abused by the Hydra, and didn´t do anything to prevent it.


The five Pokémon prepared their stuff to leave the city right away, it would be more painful if they wait a little longer; The others couldn't do much else but tell them to be careful, and have good luck on their journey. The small group just exit the city, heading into an unknown land of pain and doubts.

Few minutes later, Debra finally returned with the group, all alone. The Sawsbuck asked what just happened; Penelope just, made a very lazy response.
-Nothing worth talking right now. Come on, let's head back inside, We got a lot of work to do-

Things have officially changed; The Group, was no more.


....​


Back at the campfire; Sebastian woke up from an hour-long sleep; Simon and Star L.A were worried sick, but got better when they saw him alive. Gregory also wanted to check on him, but the Crobat was still very nervous about all of this; But he already made a bow to help them, and this was something he needed to fight on his own. Just minutes after waking up, the Serperior just brush his tiredness off, and showed a map to the other four Pokémon.

-There's a bay near Undella town that could take us straight to Humilau; but given the current temperatures, it's better to cross it by boat than by Surf.-

Realizing it was a bad idea to sleep near such a large river, the five members turned off the campfire and headed into an abandoned house.
On the way there, Denisse managed to catch a glimpse of her reflection in a small body of water.

-What the hell I got myself into this time- The Excadrill then stomps into her image in frustration- At least THIS would be over quickly-

Meanwhile, a shadowy figure was spying on the group; all while hiding among the bushes, and before going away.
And that figure was none other, than Andrea herself.



Right after the incident,Debra took Andrea to the house to deal with the deep wound caused by the other Absol. She may have lost a lot of blood, but she managed to survive the incident; although, now she has a deep scar on the left arm.

Just imagine; the insufferable pain, the near death experience, and a permanent reminded of that trauma lying within yourself. Andrea had enough, and she wanted to leave the group. It was fun while it lasted, but now she had to part ways.

-After everything that happened to us today, you just plan to leave?- The Sawsbuck called her out on this behavior- During this desperate times, we all need to stay together; If not, we are all going to die- That was none of her business anymore, and the Absol escape of the city without a warning, or without even saying a goodbye.


As you can all see, things were going really bad among this surviving group of Pokémon. And Sadly, they are about to get even worst.

It´s the beginning, of the end.

As You might´ve already guessed, The final arc of this run will be an all out assault against The Hydra.
Separating the main group members from the others, and Andrea traveling on her own, was a great way to show how serious things are about to get.

I can´t wait to show you the next incoming Chapters, as some of them might be one of the best works I ever wrote.

Thanks once a gain for reading, and I´ll see you next time.

After traveling all night; Andrea finally returned to Route 14, the very same place where she first met the group.

The Absol stood on top of some trees filled with berries; her plan was just to stay there, sleep as long as she can, and only eat when necessary. Easy said than done, as the Dark type was unable to set her mind to rest: The problematic conversation she had with Debra, the thoughts of what might happen in the future, the scar on her arm; all those things were troubling her, making it impossible to stay calm and rest.


To add insult to injury, she could listen a Pokémon heading towards her. The intruder was using Quick Attack to approach where she was, the Absol Sucker Punch him on the spot. The foe then felled off the tree; it was a Raticate, a familiar looking Raticate.

-Wait a moment, I recognize you: You're that one Pokémon who left us back at the Bridge, I think you were called…...Rodrick-

And indeed, he was the actual Rodrick. But you could barely recognize him from a distance; his appearance and some of his manners were so different, he may as well be a completely different person. Apparently, he struggled surviving on his own days after his departure; Stealing from others wasn't a good idea, since everything here was way stronger than him, specially all those Hydra members. Although, all of them headed to other place for some reason.


Andrea then told him everything that happened to them, and how she felt about all of this. The Raticate understood it perfectly, this wasn't something new within that group, so he gave her one very important piece of advice.

-Let me tell you something; I've been with Sebastian and the others for a very long time, and things never got to be better.-

-Yeah, we had some nice moments, but they always end up getting involved in dangerous situations, like this one. All these months, I never did anything to stop this, and just endured it without complain, waiting for the moment when their actions get me killed. Until one day, I just gain the courage to just quit. Things are still difficult, I won't deny that, but at least I'm in a more comfortable place.-

-Let's hope you understand what I'm trying to tell, because it's my time to move out.-


The Raticate then left the area. Andrea got his message, but she needed more time to think things through.


...​


Early in the morning, the five Pokémon returned to the famous town of Undella; But with their current situation, and the cold weather, their moments on the beach city were not something to be enjoyed. It wasn't pretty to watch either, Hydra members turned the place into a complete mess.

This whole thing was filled with sorrow, and Simon was the first one to notice it. The unhappiness on everyone's faces was hard for the Reuniclus to handle, and this time Trisha wasn't there to cheer him up. The others weren't much of a help, they didn't knew what to do, and were afraid of making things worse for the poor child. Only Star was able to get near him and pat him in the back.

-Is ok to feel sad sometimes- The Reuniclus heard a voice on his mind- Never repress your emotions, even if they are not positive ones-
The statement made him feel a little bit better, and the two Psychic types continued with the rest ofthe journey.


Next to the city was a small bay leading up to a cave in the middle of the sea. Gregory and Star could get there no problem, but the others needed a boat; Luckily for them, a small one was found near the coast, but Simon used his Psychic power to prevent it from sinking, and move it into their destination.

The trip wasn't easy; as soon as they were far from the surface, the five of them became the target of multiple Water Pokémon, all of them saw them as yet another pack of intruders and predators. Sebastian managed to scare most of them with his Leaf Blade, with Greg and Star helping with the foes who weren't weak to grass.

When they were close to the cave, a small pink Frillish tried to sink the boat and drown the others. However, unlike the others, this one was doing it more out of desperation; they could all see the hunger and fear on it´s eyes. Sebastian offered some of his food, and convinced the Frillish to leave them alone.

And in a Few moments later, they were all inside the cave.



According to a random sign, this place was called Seaside Cave; Just like before, the five Pokémon were quickly attacked by multiple Stone Edges after just a few steps. They all barely dodge the Rock type moves, and Denisse noticed that the culprits were just a quartet of Roggenrolas, she just needed two Earthquakes to kill them all. The ground type then moves forward, all in complete silence; she was avoiding the others, or at least trying to.

Right after killing the Rock types, a Boldore appeared from behind some rocks; Unlike the others, this one just warn them about the thugs hanging around the Area before leaving. The guy was weird, but they appreciated his advice nonetheless.

The cavern seemed to have a single path that leads straight to the exit. It was safe to say that this place was unsettling, specially for Gregory; was a long time since he went there, and it wasn't pretty. It didn't help that This place was also filled with weird stuff: such as blocked stairways, and a small bridge.

But the most disturbing thing about it was a small entrance, blocked by what it looked like the body of a deceased Crustle.
Thank goodness the five Pokémon won't have to go there, for now.

Another gang of thugs attacked the group halfway through, among them a Vibrava and a Lairon; this is gonna be an unpleasant fight. At one point, the Crobat reacted fast and used an Air Slash against an upcoming Heracross. He then hold on against a Scrafty with his recently learned Cross Poison attack.

It didn't take long for the five to defeat all opponents and get out of the cave.



On the outsides, there´s Route 21. This place was like a labyrinth; you can easily get lost within all the paths and turns. And to make things harder, no boat was nearby to carry everyone. Gregory and Star could go scout for some help, but Sebastian refused due to how dangerous it could be for both of them.

In the end, they just run into yet another dead end; you can sense their frustration and sadness from a mile away, all their efforts were for nothing.

That is, until a large school of Remoraid appeared before the Five Pokémon.
-Greetings strangers- Said all the Jet Pokémon- And welcome to the Humilau Community-

This was odd at first, the five haven't reached Humilau yet; But since they were Water Types, It made some sense if a large body of water was a part of it.

-Hello there- Responded Sebastian- We don´t want to cause any trouble, but we need your help in a very serious matter.-
The Serperior then explained the situation to the Remoraids.

-*Sigh* We completely understand- Said the School- But it's better if you talk directly to the leader about this-
The water types then called for a Wailord, so they could all go to the city.

The trip lasted for nearly an hour, the route was kinda difficult to traverse through; At least they could enjoy the view of the sea and relax for now.


The Five Pokémon eventually arrived, and the city was astonishing; it didn´t looked like a city at all, but instead it was a small town consisting of small wooden houses near the sea. It was something beautiful, that's for sure.

But the moments of peace were over; on the shores, there was a fire type waiting for them with a dead silent stare.
And That Pokémon, was Tommy.

Not much to talk here: the group is just travelling to Humilau; all while the members, and Andrea, has some moments here and there.
I used this chapter in particular to try to flesh out the main battlers a little bit more, as upcoming updates will be more story driven.

The Frillish, Boldore, and the Remoraid mentioned were my catches on Undella Bay, Seaside Cave, and Route 21 respectively. Those three didn´t join the group because, well, the group is no more, only the five battlers.

Thanks for reading as usual, and I´ll see you next week.

-No, that can't be. How is this even possible?-

Those were the words Andrea was thinking. From a distance, she swore to see Sebastian and other four familiar looking Pokémon riding a boat into the river. What were they planning? What just happened to the rest? What on earth is gonna happen next? She needed to get to the bottom of this.

She followed them.still keeping her distance. The Absol saw how the five of them entered into a cave after fending off some enemies. Without the boat, there´s no change for her to cross the body of water; However, she noticed how the rock formations were sturdy enough to be hold without breaking.
The dark type went a few steps back, checked if her arm was up for the job, and began to run.

She only had one chance to do this, and she will definitely succeed.

After gaining enough speed, Andrea jumped off the bay and into the rocks; she used the momentum to jump from one platform to another. Her paws began to hurt from the force of impact, but she was getting closer. Upon jumping off the last rock, the Dark type made an incredible spin, and landed safely on the cave.

She still had it in her.


...​


After a long trip, the five Pokémon had a weird encounter with Tommy, who just got out from an odd building. They tried to say hi to him, but he just ignored it. The Emboar seemed like he was angry at something, but softened up eventually.

-Sorry guys, you didn't deserve this. Specially you Gregory. It's just that I just had a bad argument with the authorities of this place-

Another Pokémon then got out of the building; it was a Jellicent, a blue Jellicent.
-Oh, another set of newcomers. My name is Jerry, and I´m the leader of this small community-

Sebastian and the others quickly made both sides catch up on the situation, and explained how they all need to work together to end the Hydra for good.

Jerry wasn't very sure about their ideas, they were strangers after all; He will agree on the plan, but only if they defeat him and his strongest allies in a small battle. This was why Tommy was so frustrated, and he wasn't the only one feeling like this, but they accepted nonetheless.

The confrontation will be in a couple of hours, so they can rest and prepare properly.


Since all the opponents were Water types, the best strategy would be having Sebastian as the main battler, and the other ones as support. The Serperior was a little bit nervous; It's really been a while since he had such an important role in a fight; and as we all know, that didn't go too well.
But they already reached too far, he needed to do his best to move on with their plan.

In the meantime, the five Pokémon and Tommy used this time to talk more in detail about what happened to them, and have a brief look at the area.

It was an unique experience seeing how many species coexisted in this small area: From the Mantines swimming on the bodies of water, to the different Basculins relaxing in peace, to the Corsolas standing still under the houses, To the Starmies and Cloysters coexisting in harmony.

But the most intriguing Pokémon there was a single Seismitoad sitting on the wooden floor. The Vibration Pokémon normally inhabits swampy areas, so he residing in such tropical area was an oddity to say the least. Even Gregory swore seeing him before, probably just a coincidence.

Nevertheless, what matters now, is to win the fight.



A few hours have passed, it was time for the match. Only four Pokémon entered the main building, Tommy and Denisse knew their type weakness would only get on the way, and preferred to stay outside and keep an eye for any upcoming enemies.

The place may look like a regular aquarium on the outside, but it was actually a small bog on the inside: Filled with wooden platforms, beautiful fountains, a white bridge, large patches of grass, and even Lily Pads large enough to carry entire Pokémon.

Jerry was located right at the end of the building, and the path leading up to him was surrounded with strong Water Types. It was them against a total of Fourteen opponents, but they can still make it.


Sebastian was the first one to go, using his Leaf Blade to repel both a Floatzel and a Mantine. As they progressed through the wooden platforms, other six opponents jumped out of the water. Star and Gregory tried their best to hold them off while Simon and Sebastian move on with the challenge.

The two then began riding on the Lily Pads straight where Jerry was located, but two Basculins and a Azumarill were blocking the way; The Reuniclus could deal with them, but neither would be able to reach the Jellicent using the Pad. After setting up a quick Coil move, the Serperior prepared himself to jump off into another wooden plank.


Sebastian only had to go on a straight line into the finish line; but it's not gonna be easy, as a Carracosta appeared to block the way. The grass type used a Leaf Blade to knock him off: and despite having a double weakness, the Proto Turtle Pokémon barely endured the attack, while smashing his own shell; and to make things worst, he was also planning to fully heal himself using an hyper Potion. When Sebastian threw another Leaf Blade at him, The Water type endured it yet again; but since he ran out of Healing items, He was eventually defeated by yet another Grass type attack.

Right after that obstacle was cleared; A Wailord, the same one that brought them all here, also appeared out of Nowhere. The Pokémon was enormous, but the Serperior was not afraid: Using his speed advantage, Sebastian maneuver himself out of the opponents range of attack; and by using his own tail to jump, Sebastian takes the behemoth down with a well placed Leaf Blade on the back.

With no one else to block his way, he finally gets near Jerry.

-Congrats for making it this far- Said the Jellicent- But you still need to defeat me- He then began shooting a massive Scald attack. The hot boiling water managed to cause some pain on Sebastian despite type resistance. It was very painful, but he endured way worst. The Serperior was getting closer,his tail began to glow green once again, and was ready to deliver one final attack.

But then, just when he was about to hit the Jellicent.
-I give up- Said the Water Type in a calm tone- I´ve already seen enough, you win the challenge-

He just gives up. Not when his teammates were being attack, not when Sebastian was getting closer, just when he was close to suffer damage.


The other members eventually catch up to the two, and Jerry admits his defeat. Everyone went outside of the building, where the Jellicent gathered everyone on the city to make an special announcement:


-Attention everybody. According to this group of Pokémon, The Hydra is planning to attack us in the next couple of days. And after some negotiations, we both agreed to join forces to battle against this dangerous threat, and make sure they don't cause more problems to us ever again.-

The crowd was cheering up, and they were all willing to participate in the fight.

-In that case, let´s better prepare ourselves; Because we will all strike tomorrow morning- Even with such an inspiring moment, the confused look on Sebastian clearly indicated that something was off about all of this.



It was late at night, and the group settled in one of the wooden cabins; but before getting ready to sleep, Sebastian told everyone was just happened.

-Wait a moment- Asked Denisse- Did that punk really gave up before getting hit?-

-That doesn't surprise me- Replied Tommy- When I was talking to him, he acted all smug about having the type advantage. And now that the tables have turned on him, he had nothing else to say-

-But... that should not be a problem now-Gregory Stuttered - What matters...is that we have them on our side- The Crobat was right; they would have such a hard day tomorrow, and really needed to rest. The five Pokémon prepared their beds, but Tommy was about to leave the house.

-Well, it was fun catching up to you- Said the Emboar- But I should really find my own place to sleep-
Simon really wanted him to stay with them instead of being alone, but even he knew it was probably for the best; After all, Tommy went through a lot.

And like that, the remainding five Pokémon finally fell asleep. Sebastian was a little afraid of what might happen soon, but having his closest friends around eased his worries. He wouldn't passed the test without their voluntary support, and he was very thankful for it.


But what none of them knew, is that a familiar looking shadow was looking over them. After following them from afar, the dark type finally understood what's going on, and also prepared herself to sleep in another area.

-Hope the five of you have an excellent rest- Andrea states before leaving- Because tomorrow, we are going to have one hell of a ride-

This chapter represents the final Gym battle of this run: It´s been a while since Sebastian played an important role in a battle, and he didn´t dissapoint.
I can´t believe how long it´s been since he was just a small Snivy, I´m so proud of him.

And now that all allies reunited, the real battle begins.

Thanks as usual for reading, and I wish you all a nice evening.


With Run Away, Survivors getting it´s own banner, it´s only fair for my other runs to get one too.

Due to some important things I have to do this Saturday, Here´s this week Chapter earlier than usual.

The sun finally arrived on the city of Humilau; this was something long awaited by some kind of Pokémons, and horribly dreaded by others:
Today was the day, when the allied forces will began their fight against the infamous Hydra Gang.

All residents prepared themselves for such dangerous mission: Gathering the necessary supplies and medicine, checking out if they are all in good conditions to fight, studying the surroundings, coming up with different battle strategies; some of them even spend the night training up just to ensure victory, or just to make it out alive.

But not all of them wanted to join in; In fact, some of the Pokémon prefered to stay safe on the community. Among them was a quiet Amoonguss, and the local Seismitoad, both of which admitted to not being much of a fighter. In the end, these two were put in charge of defending the city on the Alliance´s absence alongside the other personnel.


Sebastian and the others didn't fell behind, and also prepared themselves for the upcoming fight. The five Pokémon headed into the nearby route to get some practice; that was, until a strange group of individuals got in the middle of the road there.

-SALUTATIONS FELLOW TRAVELERS- They all talked in perfect synchrony with each other- IT'S BEEN QUITE A WHILE SINCE OUR LAST ENCOUNTER-

Recognizing the odd speech pattern, Sebastian realize who they were:
-No way, you´re those scientists- The Serperior recognized those creepy voice- We ran into you back in the dessert-

The trio consisted of a Magnezone, Beheeyem, and a Klinklang; However, they all looked so different now: No only did the three reached their final evolutionary stage; but they all sounded more robotic, more cold, and more devoid of normal emotions.

Denisse also recognized the trio back from Driftveil, they were the ones who warned her group about the attack that got them killed. And with clear signs of anger, the Excadrill was quick to ask what the hell are they doing here.

-THERE´S NO NEED TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT OUR PRESENCE, OUR PERSON JUST WANTED TO MAKE OBSERVATIONS OF THIS GROUP OF INDIVIDUALS, AND RECOLLECT DATA FOR OUR PROGRAM-

The Five Pokémon were about to interrogate them, but were all called by Tommy to comeback for an important meeting; And the trio was left behind. But right after the quintet was out of sight, they were approached by a large shadowy figure.

-SALUTATIONS, WATER TYPE POKÉMON. ARE YOU READY TO PROCEED WITH THE PLAN?-



…​



Right next to Humilau, there was Route 22: This small grassy path does not have a lot to talk about, except that it leads to the main base of the Hydra: Giant Chasm. Even before the war started, this place had an infamous reputation among the residents of Unova; It has been rumored that disaster may befall on the fools who dare traverse it. Such an appropriate homel, for such an unscrupulous organization.

All of the Allied forces gathered in front of the entrance to the Chasm. Jerry then stood up in front of them, standing on what it seems like the destroyed statue of some mythical Pokémon, with Sebastian and his team on the front lines.

-Attention everybody, listen up- The Jellicent was acting all serious despite his clear nervousness- Today we start our attack; we all need to force our way inside their home, surround them into a corner, and then finish them off before they become a threat-

His statement concerned a lot the Pokémon; yeah, most them are dangerous, but some of them didn't have any other choice on the matter. Gregory in particular felt uncomfortable with the speech and decided to call him out on the subject and if is OK to spare the ones who surrendered..

-You cannot be serious, there's no way we could spare those bastards- The jellicent laughed at his request- And why do you care about those lowlives anyways, are you friends with them?-

The Crobat wasn't able to respond, causing the leader to laugh even harder.

-Hey knock it off- Sebastian responded- You don´t know any idea what a nightmare he's gone through-

The Serperior and the others continued to defend their friend, but Gregory told them to leave it like that; It wasn't worth it, Jerry wasn't worth it. At least they all reached an agreement to spare the ones who refused to fight back.

And with that being said, the allied forces made their way into the entrance, and proceed with their attack.




On the other side, the chasm seemed like a small cave with a single path leading into the left side. As soon as the allied forces came in, they were all attacked by a Drapion and other three Poison types..

-Oh my, look what we have here- Her name was Dragana- Are you assholes here to join us? Or you are here to die.-

It was an intimidating situation, The Drapion seemed to be very strong; not to mention that some of her thugs were a Garbodor and a Golbat.

The only ones willing to strike back were Denisse, and Tommy. Dragana avoided their attacks, and called on her minions.
-You two have the guts, I like that- She said- Shame I have to rip them out of you-

Denisse took care of the Drapion and the Golbat, while Tommy took down both the Seviper and the Garbodor. Their hatred for the Hydra made them cooperate for once, and defeated their opponents without difficulty.

-Oh Fuck this- Dragana retreated while calling for backup- I´m not going down for this shit-


More and more Pokémon then appeared behind her, but the allied forces were more than ready to take them down.

One odd thing some of them noticed is that all of the Pokémon present were either Dark, Poison, or Normal types; That was odd, considering that battled other members of other types before, but were probably on other parts of their hideout.

However, because of this; Sebastian, Simon, and Star L.A prefered to let the others do the battle while they provide other kinds of assistance.


The allied forces continued traversing the cave; after a while, the path eventually splits into two sections: One that was on the end of a corner, and the other just a few miles closer. Since the first one was blocked by old falling debris, they all went into the second one; Nobody suspected about this, it was a very common accurance at this point. A few more miles into the second path, there was another entrance leading into the deeper parts of the Chasm.

But as soon as they get closer and closer, they were still attacked by more Hydra Goons. Among the attackers was Walter and his bodyguards, all heading towards Sebastian; He really wanted to kill them, after what they did to his face.

The Serperior couldn't get the Weavile off, but he was rescued by a shadowy figure, it was an Absol.
-Wait a moment- Sebastian recognized the Dark type- Andrea, what are you doing here?-

-There´s no time to explain- She was smiling- We now have a war to win-

They all doubt why she arrived here all of the sudden; but the more allies, the better.



The allied forces entered the deeper part of the chasm; at this point, they managed to repel a huge chunk of their forces, all without losing any single Pokémon, or even any major injuries. They all believed to have this war in the bag; but when in reality, this was far from the truth.

The Hydra knew they were coming; and as soon as they all cross the entrance, their entire army appeared right before them. The allied forces were easily outnumbered. Everyone tried to retreat, but even more members surrounded them from behind. It was all a trap, and they all fell for it.

Elliot and his Hydreigon stood in front of his minions, to taunt them all.

- Do you assholes really thought that you could attack without us knowing?- The Eelektross had a malicious grin on his face- But I’m always one step ahead, thanks to these some.. highly special individuals-

By the snap of his fingers, another Absol bought two familiar Water type Pokémon: The Seismitoad from before, and Jerry.
The allied forces were just angry, at their shameless betrayal.

-iF iT mAkEs yOu fEeL bEtTEr- A Cofagrigus then appeared next to Elliot- sAmSoN jUsT sToOd tHeRe tO kEeP aN eYe oN yOu, nOtHiNg mOrE-
And indeed, the allied forces could see the guilt and sadness within Samson´s face. He wasn't the one responsible for this atrocity.

-The Jellicent on the other hand,- Walter pushed the Water type into the center of the conflict- He didn't hesitate to sell you out when we first talked to him-

Everyone stared at him in shame and anger. And unlike Samson, he didn't felt remorse, just embarrassment, not wanting to look bad in front of them.
-You... already got what you wanted- He mumbled- Now give me what you promised-

-Of course you dipshit- Said Dragana- Who do you think we are to not be loyal to our word-

-You are now a part of us…- A Toxicroak stabbed Jerry in the back- And you will be the main dish for our fucking conquering feast- The attack didn´t killed him, but made him unable to move. The Jellicent will receive No mercy; He didn't deserve it, on neither side.

Some of the goons took Jerry away, while everyone else focused on the remaining allied forces. Sebastian and his allies were overwhelmed by their massive size of Pokémon in comparison, they could only stare in fear and despair.


Sebastian, Simon, Denisse, Gregory, Andrea, Star L.A, Tommy; Elliot was looking at all of them, with the most devilish smile someone like him could make. They wanted to fight him off, but he still had Hector and his army on his side, there was nothing else someone could do.

The electric type was intrigued at this odd group of Pokémon, and then came up with a malicious idea.

-Leave these seven here, and take the others away- The Eelektross ordered to his goons- I want to have a….small conversation with them-

He, and his strongest Pokémon, then took them all into the deepest part of their hideout.
who knows what are they gonna do to now, but as far as I know...It ain´t gonna be pretty.

Don´t let the settings fool you; This chapter may take place in Giant Chasm, but the battlers are actually from the first time we enter the Plasma Frigate.
In this occasion, the group starts their war against each The Hydra, as they invade their main base, and challenge their highest ranking members.

Unfortunetely, what could go wrong, did go wrong. And yes, Jerry being an asshole was because I didn´t like Marlon as a character.
And about the Seismitoad, he was obviously a member of The hydra, given that is based on the Pokémon of one trainer in particular.

Also, The Amoongus who briefly appeared at the start was my catch for Route 21; I named him Armando.

I´m really nervous with next week chapter; as I personally consider it one of the best on the run, even though it´s also one of the most intense.
So, Stay tuned.

Thanks as always for reading, and I´ll see you next time.

Warning: This Chapter is gonna get a little bit graphic, and a little too real.

The Allied forces have failed, The Hydra was too powerful to defeat.

They were all taking prisoners and taken to the center of their hideout. It was such a hideous thing to watch: A plain snowy area filled with messy wooden houses and neglitable Latrines. By looking at the chopped trees, or the remains of multiple deceased Pokémon, the things they did to this place and its original inhabitants were very clean. Sebastian and his friends were taken into the center of the Chasm, characterized by the gigantic campfire illuminating the whole area, while other allies were taken somewhere else.

The seven Pokémon could see how the all goons looked at them, all expressing different emotions, with different sorts of intentions. They also noticed how some of them were carrying a net filled with dead Flying type Pokémon, one of them even looking like the Swanna that tried to hunt them a while back. Who knows what they´re gonna do with them.

-Attention to all of you- Walter yelled to nearby members- Give the deserved attention, to the six heads of the Hydra-
Elliot, Henry, Dragana, Sampson, the Toxicroak, and the Cofagrigus. These six Pokémon were worshipped by everyone like they were gods.

The two teams made direct contact with each other.

-jUsT lOoK aT tHeSe … sPeCiMeNs- The Ghost type called himself Cole- jUsT iMaGiNe tHe wAyS ….To mAkE tHeM sUfFeR-

-I say we should just kill them- Suggested Dragana- These fuckers were such a pain in the ass to us-

-Now calm down Sis- Responded the Toxicroak- Where's the fun in just killing them?-

- You have a point there Travis- The Drapion replied- We can still beat the ever living shit outta them-

-Do you guys forgot who's the one making the decisions here?- Elliot was about to snap his fingers, when both Pokémon stopped talking -That's what I thought. Now, let's see what we have here-



The Eelektross got closer and closer to our group; He first noticed Simon and Star L.A, just a couple of Psychic types who were dumb enough to defy him; then to an scared Gregory, yet another unworthy member who wasn't grateful for such an honor; Move on with the angry duo of Denisse and Tommy, better keep them on a short leash; And finally, to Andrea.

-Hey Walter, wasn't this the one who fought against the other Absol?- The Weavile nodded in agreement, both looking at her scar
- And yet, she still stood against us.-

But he saved the best for last; after he first saw him back at Opelucid, it was pretty clear that Sebastian was the leader of such pathetic Pokémon.

He leaned closer to the Serperior, very, very close. -I guess you already know why I'm talking to you, starter Pokémon. You and your friends caused me a lot of trouble for quite a while now; I know this, because every time I heard of my forces being attacked, it always has to do with either you, or your Emboar friend. But, even someone like you could be a very useful asset.-

Elliot then raised his claws and put them close to Sebastian´s face, none of his friends really liked where this was going to.
-If you and the others swear loyalty to the Hydra, and follow my every single command, your punishment will ... not be so severe; refuse however, and I´ll make sure you regret every single moment that you dared defy me. So, What's it gonna be?-

It took five seconds, just five seconds for The Serperior, five seconds to give Elliot a painful Headbutt. His answer was pretty clear from the very beginning.

-Over my fucking dead body-

The attack didn't caused any injuries, but sure made him recoil in pain.
-Alright, you asked for this- The Electric type was angry- Cole, you know what to do-

The Cofagrigus took Sebastián away, while Dragana and Travis stayed with the other six Pokémon, all with a malicious look.


Elliot, Hector and Sampson meanwhile went somewhere else to heal the wounds. As they walk, The Eelektross wanted to have some words with the Seismitoad; -You do realize it was your job to get rid of that water community?- Sampson didn't knew what to say in return, he prefered not to accept his wrongdoings while Hector was nearby.

-But I´m gonna let this slide, you´re my closest friend after all- Elliot then gave him a pat in the back- Well, at least they won't be a problem anymore; Heck, we even get to enjoy seeing them suffer, so It's another win for us-

Win, that word resonated within the Water type´s mind. Ever since the two of them managed to control the Hydreigon, they had a huge advantage when it comes to surviving this destroyed region; And yet, Elliot always wanted more and more. He, and the rest of the Hydra, made other people suffer, just for their own selfish purposes; perhaps….

-Hey Sampson, are you paying attention?- Elliot interrupted his train of thought- We still need to settle some things with those metallic weirdos, so hurry up and follow me- The three individuals then headed to a meeting room, ready to set up the final stages of their plan.


….​


It was pretty late at night, the six Pokémon were all put inside a small room underground, locked inside a small cage.

They all had deep wounds all over their bodies, those bastards made a heavy number on all of them; and to make things worse, they were also healed up to suffer even more without dying. The only one who managed to say a word, was Denisse.

-Hey you- The Excadrill was talking to Andrea- Why arrive here, didn't you left us earlier?-
The Dark type couldn´t respond, even she wasn't really sure about her motives anymore.

-Alright you fucker, time to join your friends- Dragana threw Sebastian into the cage, with a bag covering up his head.
-Better get some rest- Travis continued- There´ll be some good things for you tomorrow-


Simon and the others were quick to remove the bag, to be speechless at what was seen: All the scars on his body were reopened, and his right eye was brutally removed. The socket could be easily seen, it was horrible for everyone to watch. To make things worse, Sampson appeared in front of them, holding a wooden box.

-What do you want now?- Tommy got angry after seeing him- Didn't you caused enough pain to us already?- The Seismitoad just dropped his head in shame, slid the box into the cage, and just left them alone; Nobody bothered to check the contents-

-Oh thank goodness, I'm so happy that everyone's still alive; I thought….-

-THE FUCK WERE YOU THINKING!- Sebastian was interrupted by Denisse- LOOK WHAT THEY DID TO YOU-
But the Serperior walked it off, like nothing bad ever happened.

-Sebastian, they ripped your eye out!- Gregory continued- How can you not freak out!-
-Oh that, don´t worry about it- Everyone was getting concerned- What matters is that you´re all safe from them-


-But still- The Excadrill continued calling him up on his behavior- How can you be so reckless with yourself?-

Andrea then noticed something odd with The Ground Type's behavior: -Didn't you said that we were nothing more than temporary allies to you?-

-Yeah, you never considered us as friends- Sebastian was getting fed up with her- And yet you still care about our wellbeing-

Denise refused that and pushed everyone away by talking bad about them and coming up with more and more excuses, but they all knew she was bluffing. Eventually, tears began to drop on her face as she continued talking, until she lost her posture.

-Please….. leave me alone. Ok…. I was lying. You´re happy now- She was crying in defeat- I really grew to enjoy your company and support, but was afraid to lose you….just like I lost my last group. But I guess it doesn't matter now, since we are gonna die anyways-

As soon as he heard the confession, Sebastian felt guilty and tried to apologize to her; she refused to listen, and just shut herself off, this whole situation deeply hurt her. But the Excadrill wasn´t the only one, as Simon also began to panic and burst into tears.


Gregory tried to calm him up by saying that Denisse will be alright; but the Reuniclus wasn't crying because of her, but instead, he felt sad about Sebastian. The Serperior keeps insisting he's fine, and he will find a way out of here even if it kills him.

-It will be sad to see you go, but it's even sadder now to see you throw your life away.-

The Serperior didn't understand him. In his head, he think he´s not throwing his life away; The grass type is just doing what it need for THEM to survive, never considering himself in the grand scheme of things.

-Sebastian, please stop- Star L.A was speaking in his mind- Just look at yourself-
He complied with the Starmie and observed his reflection on it´s jewel core, when he finally took notice of how bad his wounds actually were.

-Does this Pokémon really deserves that much suffering? Does he really deserves to die just to save others? Tell me, do you really deserve that?

That's when it kicked, Sebastian realized his poor treatment of himself. He was never the priority, nothing compare to the others; just a Starter Pokémon with no purpose on this new world, who failed to prevent the deaths of the closest people he had to a family.

- Sebas, We appreciate all the things you did to us- Now it was Gregory´s turn- But we also care about you, and your actions are really hurting everybody-
All those negative thoughts overwhelmed his mind, and started crying as well.


At this point, almost everyone lost all hope to make it out, they just collapsed in sadness.
-We cannot give up- Andrea stood up in front of everyone- We have reached so far to just end it like this.-

The rest got curious at her speech, but were all still highly depressed.

-As we all know, The Hydra is an organization that uses fear and intimidation as their main weapon; If we just submit right now, they have already won. And if they win, all of our longtime efforts will be just for nothing. Yes, we suffered a lot; but we have to rise up, we have to rise up to overcome these obstacles and complete our objectives.-

The Absol then raised her arm in a way than resembles a fist bump; -I´ll fight to control my own future, What about you?- She hanged her arm in the air waiting for the others to respond, but they were still doubting if it's even worth the effort trying to escape their inevitable death.

-I´ll fight- Gregory put his upper wing next to Andrea´s paw- I'll fight to put an end to all the suffering caused by them-

Simon was the next to raise his arm; -I'll fight, for everyone's happiness.-

Followed by Star L.A; -I'll fight, for a better tomorrow.-

Then by Denisse; -I´ll fight, for my friends.-

Tommy also raised his arm, but with a slight reluctance; -To avenge the fallen.-

And finally, Sebastian raised the end of his tail; -I´ll fight, for ALL of us to make it out.-

The seven Pokémon then gathered together to raise their arms high up into the sky.
No matter what is gonna happen to them tomorrow, they´ll be ready for it.


….​


-Hey Assholes- Walter appeared next to their cell with his two Cryogonals- Time for you to wake up-
They all had a decent rest, thanks to Andrea´s speech; and were up for the challenge

-Master Elliot send me to tell you about his future plan: After yesterday's incident, he decided to end things earlier by starting the invasion today. And to make things more interesting, we will first start with your beloved community; you will all enjoy seeing your closest allies die at our hands while we torture the ever living shit outta you. It will be magnificent.-

But before the Weavile could get them out, a giant explosion was heard from a distance.
-We are under severe attack!- Yelled a random Hydra member- A massive army of Pokémon is coming to the hideout-

That's impossible, they have already captured all of the allied forces; Who could be the ones behind this?

At the main entrance of Giant Chasm, the hydra could see the opposing force; which consist of multiple individuals from different places and species.
-We are all ready to breach the hideout- Said a Garbodor- Just need your command-

The poison type seems to be talking a Lilligant, a familiar looking Lilligant.
-Just remember Trisha- Penelope said to her friend- We still have to search for the others-

The new army of Pokémon were quick to force their way into entrance of the hideout; After arduous days of training, intense preparations, and sending those special five Pokémon to buy as much time as possible, there's no way in heaven they could afford to lose to the Hydra.

-Remember to block all possible exits, and back them into a corner- Penélope tells to everybody- If one of them gets to escape, then we are all doomed-

But before entering the cave, the army was intercepted by a small group of Pokémon; It consisted of a Pink Jellicent, a Gigalith, an Octillery, a Corsola, a Vanilluxe, and an Amoonguss. The Mushroom Pokémon ensures that they´re not foes and just want to help. He also explained about the attack from the allied forces; and how neither them, nor Sampson, had returned to Humilau yet.

The group already expected the worst, but still believed that Sebastian and the others could still make it out.


...​


The enemies appeared at a fast rate, but they were all ready for them.

-Good thing we left Rosemary back at the city.-
-Yeah, things are about to get messy in here.-


Both Gabriela, Ace, and many other Water Types, prepared themselves to unleashed a combined Surf attack, hitting the first wave of enemies.

And that's how, the war began.

Some thugs went towards Trisha, who set up some Stockpiles to better endure the attacks; The Garbodor then Poisons them with Toxic and finished them up with a powerful Venoshock.

When they entered the main area of the Chasm, their number of opponents increased more and more.
-Dammit, I cannot see Sebastian or the others in here- Yelled Lee from the front lines- They must´ve been taken off somewhere-
-Don´t forget to keep your guard up- Victor was fending Pokémon away with Fire attacks- Our main objective, is to defeat the enemies-


Although the group members became a lot stronger after evolving, their change in anatomy caused difficulties to a few of them; such as the case of Kevin. The Escavalier might be a strong fighter with his new Javelin-like arms, but it just took him to lose balance once to be easily surrounded and scared despite having the type advantage.

Luckily for the Bug type, he was saved by a flock of Birds; the foes got distracted and intimidated long enough to be knocked down from behind. The birds were nothing more than illusions, created by the very heroic dark type.

-Good thing you had that shiny new shell, Kevin- The Zoroark helped him get back on his feet- Now how about we start kicking someone's butt?- And the two continued fighting.


Eventually, the entirety of the allied forces managed to get inside the Chasm; and with that, it means that the Hydra had to change tactics and play defensive: While some goons made a giant barricade, some enemies Poison types started throwing multiples Sludge Bombs behind the barrier.

Seeing this, Penelope ordered to execute plan 12: Aaron and Summer were called to intercept the Poison type attacks, and neither the Aggron nor the Solrock received much damaged due to their typing; Trevor then flew over and disrupted the barricade with a Bulldoze; After that, the Flygon moved over and made space for a Sawsbuck.

- You´re ready for this Minnie?- Debra was talking to the Pokémon on her back- Because we only have one chance to do this- The Cinccino was scared, but with Debra supporting her, she knew she could do it. Debra went full speed ahead and ram their over using a powerful Return, and Minnie used the momentum to jump and attack the Poison Types with multiple Tail Slaps.

They all managed to defeat all these powerful adversaries, but the real fight was just getting started.


….​


The comontion was really loud, it could be even heard from Sebastian´s cell, Walter and his Cryogonal headed outside to see what's really going on. This was their chance: The Seven Pokémon used their attacks to break out, but were somehow unable to break the metal bars. This cage was meant to contain creatures like them, and make sure they never escape from their oppression; who knows where the Hydra got it from.

At one point, however, Simon went in to check the contents within Sampson´s Box; Covered in a Dark piece of Cloth, there was a single key. The Seismitoad tried to help them indeed, perhaps he actually felt guilty for what he did.

They opened the cage just in time for Walter to return, and Denisse was quick to silence him. The Excadrill used her Metal Claws to pin the Weavile against the wall, and stab him right in the chest; with the others taking care of the Cryogonals afterwards.

They need to move on, there's not much time left.


-Oh thank goodness, Can´t believe I found all of you.-
That voice, there's no way; It was Penelope, and she arrived there by herself.

The Lilligant was so happy to see them; but her cheerfulness quickly turned upside down when she looked the gravity of their wounds, specially the ones involving Sebastian. The grass type knew things might go south, but never thought that the Serperior could end up in such horrifying condition.

-Guys, I´m really sorry for putting you through this- She was dropping tears- I shouldn't have..

Sebastian then leaned close to her shoulders, he was also crying. It seemed that he was trying to give her a hug; Penelope got it and she hugged him back. -I should be apologizing too, I… was also responsible for this plan… and what came out of it.-

The other Pokémon just let them have their moment, the two needed a moment of comfort.


But there's still a war to win, so their time was cut short.

The Lilligant explained the current situation, and how the other members are handling with the opposing forces. However, the others were suspicious about Hector or the other heads of the Hydra: and to the surprise of everyone, nobody saw any of those six dangerous individuals on the battlefield. Tommy interrogated the one Cryogonal that survived, the leaders of the Hydra have a private room on a cave on an even deeper part of the Chasm.

There´s something fishy in all of this; but, in order to end this for once, they need to get towards them. They needed to defeat them in combat.


Oddly enough, near where the cage was located, there was another wooden box. Unlike Sampson´s, this one was filled with medicine and other useful items; and oddly enough, it also contained Simon´s trademark bow tie. These things were probably confiscated from them after being captured.

But among them, some items could be of great utility: A Miracle Seed, Charcoal, some Leftovers, Soft Sand, Razor Claw, Bright Powder, and an Expert Belt. Sebastian, Tommy, Simon, Denisse, Gregory, Andrea and Star L.A will make good use of them in that respective order to increase their chances of success.


Their main concern now, was to get back into the surface. Penelope led them towards a small corridor; this place was built just recently, the exit must be nearby. They eventually reached a vertical ladder. Everyone managed to get out of there without difficulty; well, except for Sebastian, his Serpent-like body had difficulties climbing up, so he needed some extra help.

The underground room was located on the far right corner of the crater, surrounded by two of the stone walls. Once they got outside, Sebastian and the others were able to see how the rest of the group fighting the entire Hydra forces; They´ve never been so proud.

However, after looking around, Star L.A noticed a straight path covered in Stone Walls; It was leading to a far block of solid stairs, that must be where the leaders are hiding. But as soon as they got out, they were quickly spotted by the Hydra forces.

-We will take care of them- Penelope was fighting against a Krookodile- You seven go for the big fry, we all believe in you-


They traverse the corridor as fast as they could. Some goons trying to block their way, but none of them proved to be much a fight. They made it more halfway through the path; They were about to cross the stairs; one could see the entrance to a cave; they were so close to ending this, once and for all.

That´s, until some Pokémon got out of the cave, and made their way into the stairs. It was a group of five Pokémon, all with the same cold behavior and perfect synchrony with each other. The Seven Pokémon already knew who they were, but never expected them to increase their numbers in such horrible circumstances.

-SALUTATIONS FUTURE SUBJECTS- This behavior was even creepier than before, something must´ve happened- AND WELCOME TO THE LAST STAGE, OF OUR GREATEST EXPERIMENT-

The Colress program is almost complete; the only procedure left, was the complete elimination of every single member of the group.

Sebastian
Adamant Nature, Likes to Run
Simon

Previous / Next

The group is a family, and they won´t let their members down without a fight.

Since all of my catches played an important role in the story, It would be interesting if they all participate on the final battle in their final stages. However, as evident by Kevin becoming a Escavalier, these events are not based on gameplay.

Also, the Pokémon that didn´t join the group made an appearance; And yes, my catch for Giant Chasm was a Vanillish, I called him Vinnie.

Thanks as usual for reading, and I hope to see you next week, where the battle will continue.

Chapter 47, Here we go...

It continues.


The fights were still getting more and more intense, there´ll be serious repercussions no matter which side wins. Elliot knew this, he and the other heads went to their base on the deepest cave on Giant Chasm.

-What the fuck are we doing here?- Dragana yelled at her boss- We should be there beating the shit outta them, not hide in here like a bunch of cowards-
-Don´t worry minion- Reassured the Eelektross- Everything's going according to my plan, we just need to wait-

The rest of the heads wondered what kind of strategy could have in mind; until they realized, he is not gonna do anything at all.
-You are just gonna stay here?- Sampson´s tone was getting angrier- If we don't intervene, our own troops are gonna die-

-I don't see the problem- Elliot was laughing at his statement- We just have to wait until the numbers lower, kill ALL survivors, and get to keep the supplies for ourselves- The Seismitoad wanted to get angry at him for this horrible actions; but he couldn't, it was too late for that. The water type knew this was too much, he had to do something;

But before being able to come up with any action, fingers were snapped.


...​


It all started way back on the city of Nimbasa; a small Magnemite and a Klank were spying on the community to analyse every single detail. Although Z and her comrades made a decent job keeping citizens at bay, the two steel types easily recognized how unstable her system really was: If a single thing went wrong, the whole place easily falls apart. The metallic beings were extremely curious on how that will look like, and how would the people react.

But a doubt clouded their minds; Will they be able to push it to its limits?

-What do you mean you couldn't breach into the walls?- A voice was heard from a distance. Upon getting closer, the duo realized that a Sneasel was the one shouting.

-The leader told us to invade this city and show the superiority of the Hydra- Walter was scolding to some small time goons- How are gonna do that when you idiots cannot even cross a single fence?-

After a while looking at such dangerous, and over dominating group, the two Steel types came up with a great idea to achieve their goals.
A great, but disastrous idea.



A lot of things happened after such encounter: The former Klink and Magnemite now became a Klinklang and a Magnezone respectively; gained new allies in the form of a Beheeyem, another Magneton, and a Metang; The five moved more and more into the ranks of the Hydra; and right now, they are blocking the way to the hideout of their new leaders.

-What do you mean by greatest experiment?- The group couldn't believe what they all heard- Please, don´t tell me you’re all working with THEM?-

-AFFIRMATIVE, THE HYDRA AND THIS PROGRAM DECIDED TO JOIN FORCES IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE OUR RESPECTIVE OBJECTIVES-

-But, what can you gain from it?- Sebastian questions their motives- Weren't you searching for knowledge?-

-THAT WAS INDEED OUR MAIN OBJECTIVE BACK WHEN WE FIRST MET YOU AT THE DESSERT; NONETHELESS, PLANS HAVE CHANGED EVER SINCE-

What the hell are they all talking about? Their statement does not justify their actions.

-BACK THEN, WE STATED THAT EVERYTHING WAS POSSIBLE IN THIS NEW WORLD; IN REALITY, WE WERE REFERRING TO HOW DIFFERENT KINDS OF POKÉMON REACT TO THIS UNUSUAL SITUATION. BUT IN ORDER TO STUDY EVERY ONE, WE NEEDED A WAY TO INFLUENCE THE OUTCOME OF OUR EXPERIMENTS; THAT'S WHY WE LEAD YOU TO THOSE CANNIBALS, THAT'S WHY WE JOINED THE HYDRA, AND THAT'S WHY WE WERE BEHIND ALL OF THEIR SUCCESFUL INVASIONS.-

The last phrase was the one who shocked everybody the most.

-AFTER ALL, THE END JUSTIFY THE MEANS.-

The group was pissed at how easy those bastards were able to sacrifice hundreds of Innocent People just for their research. But the one who got it worse was Denisse, she now realised that her old friends lost their lives because of them, and unleashed a powerful Earthquake attack at the five Pokémon.

Even though, it wasn´t enough.

-You guys cross the stairs- The Excadrill was preparing for combat- I'll finish them off-

Sebastian and the others were hesitant to leave her on her own, but she insisted.

-Please...just go already. You need to reach Elliot and the rest of those fuckers… and I need to do this.- The rest of the group then proceed to move along, they got out of there before the five foes recovered from the attack; who set their sights on the Excadrill.


…​


The Six remaining Pokémon crossed the stairs as fast as possible, until they eventually reach the entrance of the cave; just yet another small corridor, leading to an even deeper entrance. But they already knew it wasn't going to be so easy, as three individuals appeared with a small bunch of Pawniards.

-Hello there sweetie- An Absol recognized Andrea- Up for a rematch?-

The Dark type also had a Banette and an Accelgor on his side; this trio claimed to be the strongest members of the Hydra, right behind the heads themselves. What's interesting of this encounter, Tommy recognized their figure; The Emboar met them before, but his memories were blurry.

But this wasn't the time to remember, they group needed to defeat the opponents



Meanwhile, Denisse continued fending off the Program members by using as many Earthquakes as possible; The Metang and Beheeyem bit the dust after the second attack, The Magneton and Magnezone endured everything and healed themselves, and the Klinklang didn´t received even a small scratch.

-How the hell was that even possible? They are Steel types for Pete's Sake.-

While the Magnet Pokémon prioritized healing over fighting back, the Klinklang made good use of it´s time by becoming faster and stronger by Shifting gears; the Steel types already had the perfect strategy to defeat Denisse, as she was getting more tired, and more frustrated.

-MISS EXCADRILL, YOU HAVE 0% CHANCE AGAINST US. IT'S HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TO CEASE FIGHTING, AND JUST LET US REUNITE YOU WITH YOUR FORMER COMPANIONS.-

Denisse was really upset, but even she noticed the inconsistency within their statement.This was clearly a setup to make her attack them, why other reason would they taunt her like that, It's not their style.

The ground type decided to play along, and rushed towards them. The Klinklang also charge in, with the other two starting to concentrate Silver energy from their magnets. But as soon as she was about to be grinded by the Gears of the enemy Pokémon; Denisse stopped running and slashed her opponent with a powerful Metal Claw . The force of impact then made it crash into the other Steel types, and the two fell to the ground.

It was her chance, the Excadrill used one final Earthquake, and finally kill them off.

Oddly enough, their creepy synchrony was only broken when they all screamed in pain. These freaks may have extreme intelligence, but committed the stupid error of belittling their owns objects of Study. Denisse then headed towards the cave, she still needs to help her closest friends.


...​


Back at the cave, Sebastian and company continued fighting.

Andrea was having her rematch with the other Absol; but she's far more careful this time. She started right away with the X-Scissors while he just set up some Swords Dances; and when he was finally able to go for the Slash, she barely dodge it by the inch of her former scar and finished him off with another X-Scissor. The Banette joined in and used Will-o-Wisp, but he missed and was also defeated with a Night Slash.

But when that was happening, The Accelgor went on and tried to ambush Andrea; Gregory noticed this and flew over and intercept. The Bug type always wanted to kill such an ungrateful traitor like him. Using his amazing speed, he made the first move in the form of multiple Swift attacks; but The Crobat endured them and counter-attack with Cross-Poison, taking him down in just one hit.

The rest were busy dealing with the Pawniards; at some point Tommy was Slashed near the stomach, but he brushed it up like nothing, apparently.

After being defeated by the group, the nine foes were all stock up in the far corner of the room; And out of everyone present, only Tommy was the one able to say something: We are about to end the pain…. your horrible gang causes to the people of Unova…. once and for all; As well as to avenge….. the Pokémon who's´s life you unfairly took, specially to my friends, and a Purrloin.

The mention of that particular Dark type species brought a sinister grin on the Absol´s face.

-Oh, so you were the Tepig who traveled with that small cat we kidnapped months ago.-

The group couldn´t respond, just stare silently.

-It was part of our initiation into becoming elite members to put him on those metal cages, and do what we wanted with him- The Accelgor continued what the Absol was saying- And Boy, We had so much fun with that pathetic little Scrub-


This was such infuriating thing to hear, Tommy was crying and losing his posture. The Emboar could barely contain his anger.

-And now here we are, at the mercy of you- The Banette was teasing him- So better do what you always wanted, and fucking kill us already. Avenge your sorry excuse of a friend, do it, do your worst you ugly piece of sh..

Tommy gave in, and burned them all; those three Pokémon laughed maniacally, while experiencing the pain. Sebastian and the others couldn´t watch this, they turned around; The Serperior even help Simon avoid such horrible excecution.

-You do realize that you did exactly what they wanted you to.- Denisse catched up to them and saw everything; But Tommy just stood there, with blood pouring out of his body.

-It's not like that…. Is gonna matter anymore.-

The Emboar collapsed on the floor. The group tried to wake him up, with no response.

-Star, stay here and take care of him- They all still needed to complete their main mission- And please keep an eye out for any visitors-



...​


Sebastian, Denisse, Simon, Gregory, Andrea; all those five Pokémon crossed the final entrance, and entered into the final room. It was dark, cold, silent, and full of space; This place was also filled with precious and valuable goods, but not a single people on sight.

That is, until a shadowy figure appeared before them; the group rushed towards it

It was a dead body, Sampson´s dead body; By the looks of it, the Seismitoad was mauled to death not so long ago. Right behind him, Elliot and the other heads stood there; No one said a word, they just look at each other with sights of hatred and anger, all preparing for the inevitable.

One last battle, one final chance to end it all.

Previous / Next

In this Chapter, the main group must battle their way into the main heads of the Hydra, and discovered some shocking things along the way.

As you may have guessed, this instalment covers the battles between the Aftermath equivalents of Colress and the Shadow Triad; and they were all easily defeated by Denise and Andrea respectively (although Gregory had to help with the Accelgor). In fact, this chapter was originally split into two; but they were very short and could ruin the pacing.

Don´t forget to stay tuned for the next chapter, where the final fight will finally takes place.

Important Announcement: Since we are just a couple of Chapters from finishing the story, I decided to end things with a bang by uploading each one of them on a daily basis: From May 25th to May 29th. And to finish things off, on Friday I´ll announce the Final Q&A exclusive for the Forums.

Thanks a lot for reading, hope you enjoy it, and I´ll see you all next time.

And last for not least, here´s the star of the run. Andrea, you defied all expectations, and became an important part of this group.
You´re an amazing Pokémon, and nobody can tell you otherwise.

The war still continues.

Sebastian, Simon, Denisse, Gregory, Andrea; Our group of surviving Pokémon finally reached the final room of the Chasm.

-So, you´re the ones behind this entire fucking mess.-

Elliot, Hector, Cole, Travis, Dragana; The five heads of the Hydra stood in front of them at the end of said room, just a few inches away from the body of a fallen Seismitoad. The tension of such encounter could only bring one thing: The Final Battle.


-Hehehehe..This, is just priceless- Elliot clapped his hands and began laughing, this was a joke to him- Hard to believe how a ragtag group of insignificant and treacherous runts like you have the guts to oppose me and my army, specially after what happened to Sampson. Isn't that right my minions!-

Cole joined in the laugh, but Travis and Dragana were more mad than amused; it was only when The Electric type put a menacing pose that the two followed in the cheers. Not even the highest authority in the gang were safe from the abusive leadership of that heinous Electric type, and the powerful Hydreigon he controlled. This has to end, and end right now.

-We were supposed to wait until you all kill each other and avoid getting our hands dirty, but now it seems like that's no longer an option- Elliot got closer and closer to the group while raising his arm- Henry, could you be a sport and attack those fucki…..- Sebastian wasn't having it, and quickly spit on the Eelektross face; the act distracted him enough for the Serperior to attack before he could command anyone. The other Pokemon then charged towards the enemies as fast as possible.


And that's how, the battle finally starts.


Andrea was the first one to deliver an attack, her target was Cole due to type weakness; But the Coffagrigus shielded himself with Protect, all with the creepiest smile a Ghost Pokémon could make. That's not even the worst of him: As soon as she started to set up her Swords Dance, Cole eminanted some purple fog; The Absol tries to avoid getting into it, she knew something bad would happen.

-yEs, cOmE cLoSer- Cole used his arms to expand it even more- jUsT lEt mY tOxIns gEt iNtO yOur lUnGs, aNd sUcCuMb tO A sLoW, pAiNfUlL, aNd pLeAsAnT dEaTh- His Toxic attack grew too much, she lost sight of his opponent; Cole smiled yet again, until a figure rushed into him at high Speed.

By holding her breath, Andrea crossed the Fog and used the lack of visibility to attack the Coffagrigus with Many Night Slashes as possible. She defeated him and made it out without getting Poisoned; One Head down, four more to go.


Unfortunately, Andrea had to stay in place to recover some air; Dragana heads towards her to kill her with some X-Scissors, only for Denise to block the attack. -If you wanna hurt her, you´ll have to go through me first.- The Excadrill, however, was a little bit tired from her previous fight; something that the Drapion used to her advantage to grab the Ground Type with her tail pincers. and pin her into the floor.

-Let´s see if you can get out of this one you fucking skank- Denisse was holding back, both sides were struggling to overpower the other.


Simon had the misfortune of battling against Travis: His opponent had a huge weakness to Psychic attacks, one single move would be enough to take him down; but when the Reuniclus tried anything, he got wounded faster that he could react.

-I´ve got to admit kiddo, those mind powers of yours are something to behold- The Toxicroak continued using Sucker Punch everytime Simon tried to move- But this is the real world, and you need far more than power to make it here- Travis also used multiple Shadow Balls to keep him at bay; by doing this, Simon got too scared to even think clearly. The poor child was in a extremely vulnerable state, the exact place where Travis wanted him to be.


As Sebastian and Elliot continued their brawl, The Serperior went for the kill with his signature Leaf Blade; but his opponent quickly banished from sight, and returned to Strike him at incredible speed. It was an Acrobatics attack, and it caused a lot of Damage.

-I´m not considered the boss of the Hydra for nothing- The Eelektross was mad, having to use his strongest moves on somebody like Sebastian; but if he has to kill him, the electric will make sure he suffers as much as possible.

The grass type had to be far more careful, always playing defensive and setting up Coils to improve his chances. Elliot eventually went for another acrobatics, but was blocked by another Leaf Blade. They were equal in strength, but Elliot had a small advantage; he is also capable of throwing Flames from his mouth to repel his opponent. Sebastian was stunned, and the leader then ordered Henry to attack the others, before using Acrobatics again.


There were many targets to choose from, The Hydreigon didn't knew which one he should attack first. Gregory was the only one without a battle; if the Dragon type gets to the others, he will kill them for sure. The Crobat then got closer to Henry to attack him from behind, causing it to get really angry and with a burning desire to chase him out. The two Pokèmon flew all over the room at a very high, and very similar velocity.

-What the hell are you doing Henry!- Elliot was watching the chase unfolding- Hurry up and just kill that traitor already- Sebastian used the distraction and wrapped his body around him. As the Eelektross tries to escape the constriction, the Serperior held nothing back and viciously bite him near the head, he was using his Giga Drain attack.

Elliot was getting into a lot of pain, but at least managed to free one of his arms; but still, as helpless as a child, he needed a way to fully get out. That's when he saw Gregory heading near them; and went in for the most powerful thunderbolt he could make. The attack meant nothing to Sebastian, but did quite a number on the Crobat.

-GREGORY!- Sebastian witnessed how his friend got injured; And like two birds in one stone, Elliot managed to get himself out of the Serperior.

Henry rushed in, and quickly bite one of the lower wings. Greg was screaming after the vicious Crunch attack, and was flailed in non-stop; at least, until the Dark type was attacked once again on the back, and forced to let go of his target.

-Hey, big ugly Dragon!- Andrea fully recovered, ready to taunt Henry- Why don't you mess with someone your own type!-

Gregory was heavily injured, but still remained conscious. -You stay here, try to hide. I'm gonna keep him distracted-
The Absol knew that her friend was in cero condition to flight, and in no condition to fight.


At this point, both Sebastian and Elliot were very tired to continue. The two needed to heal off for the moment, good thing a bag of medicine was nearby them. Elliot used Acrobatics to gain the upper hand and grab some stuff; when Sebastian got one, the Eelektross used another Flamethrower to slow him down; but he also managed to recover, only by a little bit.


Andrea did her best to keep Henry under control; but she wasn't as fast as Gregory, and could only avoid attacks without being able to fight back. Speaking of Gregory, he was hiding in one of the rocks, his body was still in critical condition. No medicines were nearby, the only thing the Crobat could do was watching the others struggling against the heads.

This situation was familiar: the others doing everything they could, and he just hiding out like a coward, a deeply hurt coward. Even after everything that happen, that paralyzing feeling towards those horrible Pokémon still remained, as strong as when he first began.

But what can he do? He'll be a sitting duck if he tries to move. He may just stay there and wait for the thing to solve itself. No, that's a terrible idea, what was he thinking? His mind was going blank, and his heart was pounding faster and faster than ever before.

Nothing made sense anymore within him, they were all doomed to die here.

Those Hydra bastards, did nothing more than to torment innocent Pokémon, beat them into submission, and keep their supplies for themselves. And now, he and his friends are gonna die, just for trying to stop their never-ending spire of pain and abuse.

-There´s no way we get out of this alive- Gregory stood up-But I´d rather give my life than to see my friends, or any other Pokémon suffer at their hands-


This motivated him enough to take off and fly towards Henry, despite his messed up Wing.

-Gregory, What are you doing?- Andrea saw him trying to stay airborne- Get out, you won't stand a chance- She was right, Henry rushed towards him with a Blue Aura surrounding him, he was about to use his deadly Dragon Rush. But The Crobat refused to stop, and just continued with his attack.

As expected, The Hydreigon Rammed into him, and the two crashed into a nearby wall; The force of impact caused the entire room to shake. Everyone present stopped fighting to see what just happened; only to witness the poor Crobat, barely hanging on life.


The group members didn´t even have time to process it, the Hydra heads continued attacking with no remorse: Andrea was running away from Hector, Simon and Denisse got themselves into a struggle with Dragana and Travis; and Sebastian, he just collapsed from the pain.

Elliot didn't hesitate, just continued to Spit fire at the poor Pokémon: then, he grabbed him by the head, and forced to witness how his dearest friends suffer by the hands of his minions. -Let this be a reminder, of what happens to those who defy me.- The Eelektross dropped Sebastian, and was about to snap his fingers while laughing maniacally. He already won; at least, that what he believes in his messed up head.


-You… Don't Scare us.-


That's what the Serperior said, using what's left of his strength.-You keep mentioning how you are this unstoppable force that should be feared, even when hundred and hundred of Pokémon didn't hesitate to fight back.-

-You are being delusional- Elliot didn't attack, and tried to contradict the insults- Just look at what happened to that miserable Crobat -

-And yet, even after all the pain you put him through, you were never capable of breaking him- Sebastian started to recover some of his strength- Because; even after what we have gone through, even after what YOU put us through; we always make it out as a team. No, as a family-
The Starter Pokémon, now with more energy than ever before, charged into Elliot once again.


His lines were heard from all over the room; Denisse, Andrea, and Simon regained motivation from the words of Sebastian, and the sacrifice of Gregory.

The Excadrill was still nailed to the ground by Dragana, struggling greatly to free herself; She couldn't move any of her arms, and she was being choked by the Drapion´s Tail. That's when she noticed, the blade within her head; Denisse then stabbed the Tail with a brutal headbutt; and the pain made Dragana scream while losing her grip.

The Ground type took the advantage and used her Metal Claws to stab her repeatedly; about to nail Her into the ground, and disable her from fighting back. The Drapion then witnessed, how the Excadrill was about to start an Earthquake near her.

-DO YOU WORST, YOU FUCKING BITCH!-


Simon was heavily injured by the Toxicroak, and his crippling fear wasn´t helping things either. Travis knew he already got this fight on the bag, so he walk towards him to finish things off with a Poison Jab. But no matter how much the Poison type tries, he couldn't break The Reuniclus cheerful spirit; and he perform yet another Psychic attack.

As expected, Travis quickly went for the Sucker Punch. Simon only had few seconds to react, but managed to catch the move with one of his arms. The hand claw, however, did pierce the gel body, and hit one of the appendages; the Toxicroak was trying to free himself, Simon went on the offensive and unleashed one final Psychic attack. Travis didn´t stood a chance, and was finally defeated.


But the biggest challenge of this fight, fell on the hands of Andrea; as the dark type was still being chased. The Hydreigon was charging into her as aggressive as before, and yet, something about him seemed very off: his breathing was heavier and heavier, and from what she could hear, he also seemed to be a slight pain. The crash must´ve caused some damage into him.

And as the chase continues, she managed to spot two large Rock formations fairly close to each other; perhaps there's still hope to defeat the creature.
Andrea had to be fast if she wanted to succeed; she jumped into one of the stones, and wait for Hector to arrive. The Hydreigon was more than fed up, so he charged into his prey as hard as he could; it took the bait, and Andrea jump into the other rock seconds before he crashes into the structure.

But it wasn't enough, this will not kill him anytime soon; If she wanted to win, she must do something crazy.

-For a three headed behemoth, you are the weakest Pokèmon I`ve ever seen- The Absol was recklessly tempting him from the top of the rock- So why don't you come here, and show me your true strength-

Hector had it, and once again, he engulfed himself with the deadly Blue Aura. Andrea could feel how the Dragon Rush was heading with such immense power; but she didn`t flinched, and just prepared her claws for one final X-Scissors. Both dark types jumped into each other; there was no crash, just a slash. The two landed on opposite sides, only getting a minor bleeding. The whole thing looked like it was in vain, until Andrea started to smile.


-And with this, I make my mark on history.-


The three heads of Hector started to pour blood from the center of their necks; The Hydreigon couldn't do nothing except scream as he chokes on his own blood, and succumb to a slow painful death. The strongest member of The Hydra Gang, was defeated.



As all of these events progressed, Sebastian and Elliot continued battling; with both opponents at each other toes, and becoming more and more desperate by the second. Elliot decided to go in for another Acrobatics; but before he could make his move, Sebastian used his Leaf Blade, more than once. The Eelektross thought that he missed; but as seconds passed, all his claws began to drop off his body, and his right arm got a severe cut all over it.

-NO, this can't be.- The electric type was shocked- His Tail wasn`t sharp enough, then how..-

One final look at the Serperior confirmed his fears; as Sebastian was covered in an intense green aura, with a cold emotionless look on his face.
Not even the most vicious, nor the most aggresive members of the Hydrahad such a intimidating presence around him.

-Oh, fuck this. Minions…. kill this monster at once.- Nobody responded his commands. He looked around, and the only thing he spotted were his loyal servants getting murdered, and how Sebastian was slowly walking towards him. He even tried to snap his cut fingers to call for Hector, but nothing.

He had no one else to save him.

-Listen up...Sebastian right?- Elliot could only crawl back and escape- There's no need for any more deaths. I mean, we were all just trying to survive here; you should know how that feels, wouldn't you have done the same thing?-

After hearing this, Sebastian stopped moving. He still looked as menacing as ever, but his only eye was shedding tears.

-Do you have idea, of what I've fucking went through to be here? Of the things I`ll always regret, or the times I almost lose myself, or the closest friends who died in front of me, or carrying the burden of not being able to SAVE THEM, or having to fight on a daily basis, or even suffering for all of your selfish actions. AND YOU DARE CALLING WHAT YOU DID SURVIVING!!-

Sebastian then stood on top of his tail, looking like it was about to jump; Elliot tried to pepper him away using Flamethrower. The Serperior then propulse into the skies, with his tail Glowing as bright as the sun; Without even noticing the fire, he prepared one final Leaf Blade.. The Serperior landed successfully, the Blade hit Elliot with a powerful force. But as soon as he was to rise up, his energy finally ran out, and collapsed on top of his opponent.

Previous / Next

I won´t say anything this time, because the chapter has a lot of things worth reading itself.

Thank you all for reading, and don´t forget to tune in for tomorrow.

The Hydra, Is done for.

Sebastian, Elliot; the leaders of their respective group were both lying on the floor, both on the brink of death.

The Eelektross tried to crawl away as he continued bleeding out from his injuries, with no avail.
-What´s happening to me?- No matter what he did, his body refuse to respond- I cannot feel my body, I cannot move at all!-

The electric type was terrified at being at such vulnerable state; but at least the Serperior was gonna die with him. Or it was, until the other group members arrived to their location. As expected, Sebastian got all the help from their friends, while Elliot stood there all alone.

They were also very worn out by their battles, with the most notorious being Andrea; Everyone was proud of her beating the Hydreigon by her own, and she thanked everyone for it. As they tried to aid their friend, Denisse saw the Hydra leader and was about to finish him off.

-No, don´t waste your energy. It´s not worth it, he´s not worth it.- The Serperior was carried by Simon as he points into a particular spot on Elliot body; one covered in spit, a Seed was deeply planted on the Eelektross, it was a Leech Seed. The four companions were surprised of Sebastian using that move to keep himself alive. But they all needed to move on, since there's someone else to check on.

The five Pokémon left Elliot on his own, his death was inevitable at this point, and headed towards Gregory. On the way, they were received by Star L.A; The Starmie was asked about how Tommy was doing; but the Water type refused to indicate anything, and instead just transmitted the news through everyone's mind. The Emboar didn´t made it. They were all sad to listen the demise of their ally; but had to move on towards their injured friend.


The Crobat was still stuck on the wall; and was still breathing, but his time was limited. Nobody could recover after all the pain he's been through. His vision got highly blurry, but he could see with ease how his closest friends were surrounding him.

-We finally did it- Sebastian delivered the good news- We defeated the Hydra, all thanks to you-

Sebastian, Simon, Denisse, Star, and Andrea; Gregory saw all the Pokémon who helped him with the greatest smile one could make; A tear of pure joy was dropped, In all of his live, he´s never been so happy. He may die, but at least knows he can always rely on his group for giving peace to this new world.

-Thank you....for everything.- With those last words, Gregory finally passed away.

Denisse closed his eyes, and offered herself to carry the body, he deserves a far better place to be buried in that this hideous cave. And she was right, they have no reason to stay here for much longer; The five Pokémon exit the place, and headed outside.


….​


The war still continued on the outsides of the Giant Chasm; both forces fought their hardest to be the last one remaining, with the Alliance getting closer and closer to winning. That's when Sebastian and the others shouted their way on top of the stairway. That's the room of the heads of the Hydra; if those Pokémon got out of there, that must mean. Oh no. The enemy soldiers already knew what happened, and were shocked by it.


-This War is Over- Sebastian stood in front of the huge crowd- The Hydra, is done for-
Some took it as a sign of relief, while others reacted poorly to his words.


-But this doesn't mean it's members have to suffer for this.- After that statement, there was a huge amount of silence, and stares of interest. The Serperior got nervous at the sudden chance of tone, and couldn't continue with the speech. Denisse continued where he left on.

-We may have our conflicts within our objectives and ideals; but in the end of the day, we are all just Pokémon trying to survive.-

-Aside from the supplies you´ve stolen, we won't take any of your possessions; and you can all continue living in here for as long as you like.-
Andrea states

-And if you guys need any help or want to join us, we will be happy to assist you as much as we can.- Simon also contributed as well.

-But, if any of you try to attack or do something to our group and to our friends, the price will be severe.- Sebastian delivered the final line.

The message of the group was understood by everyone; some of them joined the group, while the rest just fled from the area without saying anything.


….​


The allied forces screamed at the top of their lungs, they were filled with joy and satisfaction after their hard earned victory.

The five main Pokémon went down the latter where they were awaited by all of their friends. Even after the death of two important members, all of them were still happy by knowing their sacrifice really paid off.

Aaron was filled with overwhelming joy after seeing Denisse alive, and he hugged the Excadrill with all his might. -Dammit Kid.- She got surprised, but eventually hugged the Aggron back. It´s been SO LONG since the Ground type received some sort of comfort, and she was glad of it.

But she´s not the only who was received by her closest of friends; both Simon and Star L.A had a tearful reunion with Trisha and Summer respectively.
Zoroark, Kevin, Debra, Trevor, Ace, Gabriela, Minnie, Victor, Lee; both Sebastian and Penelope could see all the members, all the friends they gathered over the course of their journey, just enjoying themselves after such difficult times of war.


-Uhhm, excuse me.- The Amoonguss from earlier arrived with his own group of Pokémon. The Mushroom Pokémon wanted everyone in his group to live with the Grass types, and both leaders were more than glad to accept them all in, they also helped a lot in the fight.

-So, what do we do now?- The Lilligant already knew the answer to her question, but she wanted the Serperior to said it himself.

As they were about to leave the Chasm, and get to the supplies, Sebastian noticed yet another entrance of on the opposite side of the main room; However, it was blocked with so much debris and collapsed rocks, it was impossible to pass through it.

-Let's just get back home. We still have a lot of work to do.- With a smile on his face, the grass starter led his family towards Opelucid City.

Previous / Next

And with this, we put an end to The Hydra Arc,

It took over more than forty, forty chapters of pain and terror caused by this infamous group; but alas, the nightmare is over, and everyone can now be able to look for a brighter future. Unfortunately, this victory cost the life of one valuable team member.

RIP Gregory the Crobat (lv. 32-53) I´m really sorry for not being able to save you, after everything you´ve been through, but you managed to save thousands of lives from living the same experience as you. You´re a hero, and your sacrifice will not be forgotten.

But this is not the end, as next chapter will be the one to conclude this run.

As for gameplay facts: Sebastian was the one that killed the Seismitoad, and Star L.A defeated White Kyurem all by itself.
These gameplay elements were not included in the story for obvious reasons.

Thanks as usual for reading, and I wish you all a nice evening.

At last, we reached the end. The Aftermath, of The Aftermath.

Hello, Old Buddy.

It´s been a while since I last talked to you; actually, it was very long time. Two entire years in fact, since we first started our adventures in this new world.

A lot of things happened after my last visit, and I really want to share them with you. The War with The Hydra has caused a lot of damage across the Region of Unova, It would take the effort every single one of us to repair and rebuild everything we lost; starting with our new hometown: Opelucid City.

But in order to complete such important mission, we needed someone to lead the way. And who better for a leader, than Penelope herself. Some of the residents had their doubts on her at first, but she proved time and time again how great she was for the position.

And, If I´m beign honest for a second, I never imagined what would've happened if we never met her back at Castelia, but I´m always happy for having such a wonderful person in our lives. And we all couldn't be more than grateful for that, since she came with fundamental decisions that changed things for the better; With the biggest one being to avoid repairing the wall that surrounded the city, and isolated us from the rest of the world.

If we wanted all Pokémon to work together, those barriers have to disappear for good. With this decision, More and more Pokémon arrived to the city, It was only a matter of time before we all lived in a new era of peace and tranquility.


But she's not the only one who made a huge contribution to this new community; Simon and Trisha both opened a small school in the Local Gym building, teaching to a new generation of youngsters about the importance of expressing their emotions; and to always keep smiling, even at the worst of times. Victor also joined in to tell the history of Unova, and all it´s past and lore; Lee even provided classes for self-defense.

Seeing all those small creatures enjoying themselves after all that happened makes me cry every time; among them being Rosemary, who is happily raised by Gabriela and Ace, two Water types that fought really hard for the sake of their child.

It keeps getting interesting, Denisse eventually became the head of the City Guards; But as time went on, she eventually turned it into a rescue squadron, set on saving all Pokémon from any danger. That Excadrill was always willing to risk her life to protect her closest friends, and believe me, she was never afraid of proving that fact. Among the most notorious members include Aaron, her loyal second in command; and the inseparable duo of Kevin and Zoroark. Nobody will ever forget the time the Dark type confessed his feelings after returning from a dangerous mission; and how the Bug type fully reciprocated those feelings, without any trace of fear.

Not only that, but both Star L.A and Summer decided to raise a huge plantation nearby the City; and with the help of Debra, Minnie, Trevor, and very other individuals; They all managed to get enough cultives to feed every single Pokemon for the next couple of years.
Those two may rarely say a word, but all their actions for the group spoke way more than any phrase could.

And the good news don´t end with Opelucid, as the city of Humilau was also witness to an important reconstruction; with the Amoonguss and his group on charge, and with our support, that community became the best place for both Water Type Pokémon, and former Hydra members.


Speaking of the Hydra, I must tell you about the true heroes of that infamous war; Andrea, the legendary Absol who defeated the dreaded Hydreigon, has decided to leave the group; setting to explore the region on her own, she promised to all of us that she'll write constantly, and help anyone that might need her. The legacy of the one who beat the odds and build her own fate will always be remembered in all of our hearts.

But we must not forget the one who sacrificed the most, Gregory The Crobat; his backstory, his constant fight for a better place, and his contributions to this new society made him a national hero. A statue of him was made in his honor, located in the center of the graveyard build in honor of all those who sadly perished on this difficult times, including you. I really hope you receive him with all the love he deserves.


I know I talked more about other people than about myself; but compared to the other´s achievements, I didn´t do as much. After the war had ended, I decided to give up on fighting, I felt like we don´t need to attack and kill anymore; and I was right, My Leaf Blade wasn´t used even once ever since we reached these peaceful times. So, I became a healer of some sorts; I am always willing to threat other people´s wounds, both physical and psychological.

I fully know someone like me should do something bigger like leading an army or being the strongest one on the group.
But this is the path I chose for myself, and I´m more than proud of it.



I don´t really remember how many times I have told you this already, but every good thing that happened to me, is because of you: When I saved you back in Aspertia, you saved me from an endless depressive state. And the adventures we experience afterwards are something I´ll never forget.

We may had suffered a lot along the way, but I was always happy to have you, and the others, near me. Even at the worst of time, I was always willing to protect all the friends we made along the way, even if it killed me. And I wouldn´t have it any other way: We managed to survive this chaotic new world thanks to our bond, and became better people because of it. And by that; I can only say one thing:

Thank you, for everything.

I´m leaving this letter in front of your special tombstone, alongside some flowers I think you might like.
It was a pleasure writing this for you, I hope you like it. Don´t forget to say hi to the others for me.

And with this, I say goodbye.

Sincerely:
Sebastian, A Random Serperior.

This Run started with a Letter, so why not end it with a letter.

It´s been an absolute blast putting this story on the forums: I met a lot of incredible people, and I managed to improve as a writer.
And for that, I wanna say thank you. Thank you for accepting me into this community, thank you for giving my story a chance, and thank you for motivating me to move foward. This story may be over, but this is just the beginning for me.

And with this, we conclude with all the main updates of this run. Tomorrow will we start with the two bonus updates:
How the Gameplay really ended, and the start of the Q&A.

For one last time. Thank you all for reading this Run, I hope you enjoyed to it, and I wish you all the most amazing of evenings.

Greetings Everyone!

To start with the bonus content of the Run, here´s how the gameplay concluded following the end of the Story.

After all the crazy shenanigans of Giant Chasm, I headed towards Route 23 to Reach The Pokémon League. My catch for the Area was a Quirky Throh named Terrence (Quick Tempered) I needed a Pokémon that could defeat Grimsley, and this big fella just so happened to be the ideal choice.

After grinding my entire team up to Level 55 (I used all my Rare Candies), we were all ready to proceed. If only we knew what we were getting into: ALL the trainers in the area had strong Pokémon very close to our level, and my team had a hard time defeating every single one of them. But the Pokémon that I hated the most was an Ace Trainer´s Mamoswine; after defeating a Magmar, Denisee was right in front of the fellow ground type. I strongly believed the Excadrill could win the battle, after everything she went through; but she wasn't strong enough, and it took only an Earthquake to take her out.

After that unfortunate event, I abandoned that Route and headed towards the Pokémon Center of the Victory Road; upon reaching the place, I deposited Denisse on the PC, and gave her a small funeral in her honor. RIP Denisse The Excadrill ( Lv.25-55) You may had a rocky start with the group after the event of Driftveil, but you quickly grew up to be one of the most reliable partners we ever had.

And since I was near The Victory Road; a Small Banette named Ben joined the team, making him the last catch of this run.



But now, the question remains: Who is gonna take the last spot on the main Team? The only possible choices I had in mind were Trisha, Trevor and Aaron; everyone else weren´t of much use against the Elite Four. After some thinking, I decided to let Aaron join in, to succeed on Denise´s Footsteps.

After some extra grinding, we were ready to approach the Victory Road; I don't have a lot of notes about this area, but something I always remember is how much of a nightmare it was. But we reached through, and eventually had our final battle with our Rival: Aaron took Unfezant´s attacks like nothing, Sebastian one-shot Simipour, Terrence dealt with the Bouffalant, And Star L.A finished off the iconic Tommy for good.



We were finally in front of the Pokémon League, and the team was more than ready:

Star LA The Starmie Lv. 60
Ability: Natural Cure

Moves: Psychic, Surf, Ice Beam, Thunderbolt


Andrea The Absol Lv.60
Ability: Pressure
Modest Nature, Quick Tempered

Aaron The Aggron Lv. 60
Ability: Rock Head
Item: Metal Coat

Moves: Heavy Slam, Iron Head, Rock Slide, Rock Polish


Terrence The Throh Lv.60
Ability: Inner Focus
Item: Rocky Helmet
Quirky Nature, Quick tempered
Moves: Revenge, Bulk Up, Superpower, Payback


Vs Shauntal
Andrea first set up some Swords Dances while the Cofagrigus used Will-o-Wisp and Shadow Ball to deal some damage; After using a Full Restore, she defeated her first opponent with Night Slash, although she obtained the Mummy ability. Both Golurk and Chandelure were dealt with a single Sucker Punch each. And finally, she ended the battle by Night Slashing the Driftblim (With Aftermath Damage)

Vs Grimsley
Knowing of the Liepard´s Fake Out, Terrence used this chance to set up a Bulk Up; and after enduring an Aerial Ace, he defeated the Dark Type with Revenge. The Throh then used the same strategy against the Krokodile, the Bisharp, and the Scrafty, all without having to heal even once.

Vs Marshall
Both the Sawk and Throh tried to use Payback on him; but since Simon was slower, he took little damage and defeated them with Psychic. Not even Mienshao and Conkeldurr were able to cause much damage with either U-turn nor Stone Edge; one Hyper Potion later, and he beat them all with Psychic.

Vs Caitlin
Andrea, once again, set up a Swords Dance as the Musharma used Charge Beam, only to defeat her with a Night Slash; Then a proper Sucker Punch for the Reuniclus and Sigilyph; and finally a few Night Slashes for Gothitelle as she used Calm Mind.

Vs Champion Iris
On the first turn, Terrence took Hydreigon´s Dragon Pulse and defeated the Dark type with a Critical Hit Revenge; The Throh also endured two of Druggidon´s Flamethrowers to Counter back with a couple of Revenges. As for the Aggron, he had to use a Hyper Potion while resisting two Double Edges and fight back with a single Revenge.

By the time the Archeops arrived; I had to switch to Aaron, who took an Acrobatics like nothing and crushed the Flying type with Heavy Slam. Things were going fine at this point, but that was about to change when the Haxorus appeared; I knew for a fact that Aaron wouldn't do much damage, and other members would be greatly injured if I switched out. In the end, I had to make the harsh choice of letting the poor guy at the Mercy of an Earthquake.

RIP Aaron the Aggron (Lv.30-60) After being saved from some Axews, you were finally able to make sure your friends wouldn't suffer at the hands on them. Denisse is really proud of you. Star L.A appeared to take his place in the battle; The Haxorus went first and set up a Dragon Dance, but the Starmie managed to freeze her with Ice Beam, and it took another one to finally take the Ace Pokémon down.

And after that, Star defeated Lapras in a heated Thunderbolt battle, and claimed victory at long last.

We finally defeated the Champion, and we finally finished the run.

...​

The main reason I didn't adapt this part into the story was because, well, The Hydra arc was a way better way to end the series in my opinion: We spent the entirety of the series setting them up as the greatest danger to the group, they put Sebastian and company through hell, there was even some complexity with members like Sampson and Gregory, all to end up in a fight where everyone fought to their maximum.

Nothing I came up with could be more climatic for a series finale. The closest idea I considered was that a Ragtag group of Pokémon who indirectly suffered by the group´s actions across their adventures (Like the residents of Nimbasa City, the residents of Lostlorn Forest, or the Axews at Mistralton cave) would try to make them pay. Another interesting idea was Tommy returning after believing that the group is a threat, only for Sebastian to follow his promise of killing him for messing with his family.

But in the end, it would still end up in the same way as with the Hydra, only without so many stakes at risk, and would probably be repetitive at this point.
So yeah, that´s what happened; but It´s fine, since I could end the series in such a wonderful note.

Thanks as always for reading, and I´ll see you tomorrow for the second bonus content.
