  1. *cracks knuckles* Alright! So here's a little, bug? I guess you call it that. I found this while playing the game. Okay, so once I gotten to 7th street to save Luna, I did the event where I can get Type: Null. Now, me being the shiny hunter I am, I decided to go for the shiny Type: Null because of the cool Silvally designs it has when using a Memory Plate. And, after about 15 minutes or so, the shiny beauty appears! Ahh, yes, it does look like I used my phone to take a picture of it. In fact, I did. My stupid laptop won't connect to the Internet and for some reason, I can't go into my settings so I can send the screenshots to my phone. Anyway, it looks quite beautiful, doesn't it? I was so happy to have it in my team. And I rightfully named it Gladion, because wynaut? Alright, so I decided to test this beauty out. I battled a random NPC and sent out my beauty and...- What in the Lord's is this? Why is this box here? Is there some kind of bug? Am I not suppose to catch Type: Null yet? I'm confused. This box will bother me so much as I will start using this shiny beauty on my team. Please tell me why is this happening!!
  2. Spoink? Pokemon Reborn

    So I decided to go back to the South Obsidia ward before I go save Cain in Azurine Island, and I found this Spoink. I interacted with it and it fled somewhere. Can someone tell me where did it go?
  3. Hey there fellow Reborn players! Some of us would like to play on a mac, like me! So I figured I would put a little guide together that correctly shows all of the steps. Within this guide or whatever you would like to call this, I will show you steps that some Youtube videos skip on, or don't show you clearly when downloading the game to run it with smaller lag / easy to play! There are two/three methods to do this system; however, I have found the wineskin wrapper way to be more efficient and easy to use when doing multiple games. Please do note I will simplify the term "WINESKIN" to WINE from here to there, so please do not get confused because of this! Majority of the dates are incorrect as I, and my friends have done this with Insurgence first, all of the steps followed should say reborn for you! RIghtyo here are the download links that I have personally used to sure this all up: http://www.rebornevo.com/index.php?/pr/download/ (Note: Please use the "Mega" download option) http://winebottler.kronenberg.org/ (Note: I prefer the stable one, you can use the latest developed one if preferred) Now after you have gotten all of that downloaded, go ahead and unzip the Pokemon Reborn file. When you attempt to unzip it, there could be a chance that your Mac system will ask you to change the system settings for this: Simply go to Security & Privacy Change the option for "Allow apps downloaded from, to anywhere (don't worry this can be changed anytime) UNZIP YOUR GAME FOLDER AND DO NOT TOUCH IT TILL LATER! Once that is done and set open up winebottler and move both applications into the applications folder. Go ahead and fine wine, and it should appear something like this: https://imgur.com/a/YTf2n Please do not worry if there is nothing in the picture above, as it should be this way. To run the game you will need a new wrapper anyways. Go ahead and hit the (+) button to add a new engine/wrapper: https://imgur.com/a/VI59K I personally chose WS9Wine1.6.1 as I have found it worked the best! Select the one that you want and hit download and install as well as "Okay": https://imgur.com/a/I3LpC Once the download is done, there should be a wrapper there for you! Make sure it is the wrapper selected, once it brings you back to the main part of wine. From there go ahead and create a new wrapper by clicking on the button that says, "Create Blank Wrapper", it should prompt some more questions, which would be the name of the application/wrapper. For this case, you can call it Pokemon Reborn as it is the game you will be playing! Hit "ok" once done. It might take a tad bit of time to make the wrapper so be patient! Also congrats on making this far! As this occurs pop-ups might happen to minimize other browsers open at the same time so nothing is missed! The first couple of times you make the wrappers you might be asked if you would like to install .NET and HTML libraries in the wrapper. (I went ahead and told it to install them, just its easier in the long run!) Hit "yes" to both the pop-ups for this. Now onto the last couple remaining steps! You should get another popup saying that the wrapper has been created, and to be checked out in the Finder window. Hit the button, as prompted to. The following picture is an example, of someone else on Youtube, but you should have Pokemon REBORN in there. https://imgur.com/a/Phhzs Once you select the game, move it to the desktop for easy access during these steps! Proceed to right click the wrapper on the desktop, and choose "show package contents". From there another finder window should pop up looking like this (Yes the data is messed up deal w/ it): https://imgur.com/a/dCEFD Double click underneath where it says "drive_C" to where it says "wineskin" from the like show in the picture above. Hit "Install Software". You should have three options popup to you now, I went ahead and hit "Move a Folder Inside" for easy purposes. (Doing the other options can lead to loss of data at times.) Head to your finder into your "Downloads" section and search for Pokemon Reborn (Folder) and then click choose. As this occurs it should say: https://imgur.com/a/IWgmL (Execpt with Pokemon Reborn ofc.) Click "Okay" and then "Quit" and you are all set. All there is left to do now if double click on the wrapper you created and moved to desktop and the game should start up! I hope you guys enjoy this! If you have questions @ me on the discord "Ashk5 | Ashwin 🐼#2226" I will also be checking this forum from time to time and will update it/reply to it when needed.
  4. Pokemon Reborn Pentaop Prethread

    Hi and welcome to the pre-hype thread for the Pokemon Reborn Pentaop. A five player simultaneous nuzlocke of pokemon reborn featuring the following Youtubers. King Nappy Jayytgamer NumbNexus The HeatedMo Twit The reason why I made this thread is to get help from the reborn community about the various locations for event encounters so I can provide an accurate guide in the youtube comments sections so they can get every pokemon possible. As well as get feedback for ideas for what I should do with the general thread which I will release as soon as the first episode gets released At the moment there is no official confirmation from any of the youtubers about if the game is randomized or not. The first and third pentaops insurgence and light platinum were randomized while the second uranium was not. Is it currently possible to randomize pokemon reborn because I currently do not know and would wish to find out. Also feel free to provide general thoughts about expectations about how well they are going to do or special nuzlocke rulings that should be made for pokemon reborn. Example: as said in the general nuzlocke page for pokemon reborn should fights like garchomp/arceus count for deaths
  5. Hey!

    Hello! Im new here and i wanted to introduce myself and make some new friends idk, im so lonely all the time so..yeah Well you guys can call me Kou' or Teshi idk, do as you please! c: My personality..i guess im kinda shy in the first time i talk with a person, but a while after i start getting more confortable and i open myself a little bit more..i play pokémon since i was a little kid, but it wasnt that regular...After some years, i started playing a lot, but like A LOT! I really love playing fan made games such as Reborn and rom hacks. (Because im bored of the original games, i've played them all except sun and moon and the most recent ones because i quitted playing pokémon last year because i was banned from a online pokémon game..) Anyways, im not really good at English, i guess im decent..i live in Portugal and i really love watching anime. Even though i also quitted from it last year because i started doing some other stuff in my life, i NEVER quitted from watching One Piece! Its my favorite anime of all the time and IM NEVER gonna quit watching it until it's done! Like seriously, its the best thing ever.. So yeah guys, last year when i quitted playing Pokémon and watching anime, i started playing Minecraft. I know some of you are gonna start calling me a Minecraft kid, but i mean... i literally played 3 months the game and i'm already so good at it (at least thats what people say) I recently came back playing Pokémon and im like, SO HAPPY to be playing it again, because i love Pokémon. And i love Pokémon Reborn <3 I guess that's about it, you guys know where i live, what is my personality, what do i like.. if you have any questions about me, which you probably don't because im not interesting.. tell me below this post. That's about it guys, hope you all have an amazing day
  6. I've just started Pokemon Reborn a few days ago and so far I really love the game. I enjoy the challenge brought by building a competitive team out of Pokemon you've never used before and the strategic aspect of planning your team based on what the enemy has. One thing I can't understand though is why HMs are still relevant within the game? I can understand HMs like Surf and Waterfall (because they can still be used competitively) but others like Cut and Rock Smash just end up wasting a slot in one of your Pokemon's moveset which in a game where you're often fighting against teams that have a full team of 6 Pokemon with field buffs stacked against you and all those Pokemon have a proper thought out moveset, it often seems unfair and downright annoying. It's a hindrance that prevents us from fully utilising the Pokemon that we've been given and most players would end up using the last slot in their team as a HM slave when it could have very well been another Pokemon that they wanted to try out. Now, I do realised that HMs are used for progression in the game by locking players out of content until they've obtained the HM hence one possible solution is that when a person obtains a HM, they can then use it without teaching it to a Pokemon (if they do teach the move to a Pokemon, it should be able to be overwritten by other moves without going to the move deleter). If the team is worried about how this could affect the 'realness' (I used this word for lack of a better one) of the game. It could be said that when players are in possession of a HM within this region, they are able to temporarily teach is to Pokemon as their about to perform the task (kind of like a short jolt of memory) before being forgotten afterwards (thus it does not affect the remembered moves they already have).
  7. Sooo I'm back. For those of you who remember me, sup. For those of you who don't, I had a grass-monotype going on until my laptop broke down and all my save files just... yeah, it's depressing, so I don't want to talk about it. I want to show it. All my edgy post-teenage angst. With a team of darkness. Terrible jokes and introductions aside, I hate leaving anything incomplete. The grassmono left quite the hole in my heart... Aaand the only way to fill such voids is to do the same thing all over again. However, there will be a freshness about this for me since I haven't gotten to play Reborn from the start with the Gen VII mons, so it'll be interesting to see all the new changes. And yeah, this time I'm picking my favorite type - Dark. (Could you even see that?) So... bring on the hate let's mono! Contents Chapter 1: Darkness... dawns? Chapter 2: BOOM-BOOM Lady Beatdown (vs. Julia) Chapter 3: Too short to be called a chapter, tbh CHAPTER 1: Darkness... dawns? Oh boy is this taking me back, so friggin' excited. NOW we’re talking. Oh wow, it's changed quite a bit since I last played. NICE. This is beautiful. So who is the ultimate edgelord we know LOL Just kidding though no way I’m having him as my main character, edgy though he might be So origininal amirite Favorite color: Blue, Forum name: Red, Game name: Black ‘coz logic Buut at least it’s still edgy and better than Sasuke. OH BOY THIS TRANSITION HAS ME HARD Nice, Ame! So we've had fairly the same bit of dialogue from the past episode up till now. This guy makes quite the early appearance. Which means… Ohhh this is gonna lead up to how the game started in E16 Oh damn the memories... I know it hasn’t even been a year since I last played it but still the game is really nostalgic to play. NOOOO the start of this game. *skip skip* I'm gonna go right to the starter part, it seems like everything went exactly like before. So the two options for me are: Hell no. That’s more like it. I know Froakie is probably one of the most overused pokes but I just can't stand Incineroar's design. I should really stop with the Naruto nicknames. STOP JUDGING ME I’M NOT GOOD WITH NICKNAMES OK So this is what I got after a multitude of soft resets. The best nature + IV set I could hope for. Welcome aboard, buddy! So right after Ame leaves us downstairs, we meet up with good ol' pansexual Cain Establishing our clear superiority here... This guy must be quite the stud in the gay community. Time to my assert my dominion a second time, yay Well hello my starter from a parallel universe! Away with you! Oh boy, this game is fun when you’re destroying your enemies left and right. Anyways, beating Victoria entitled us to the Pokedex. Now off to start my grand and gruesome journey! I really wonder if all the kids who sign up for the Reborn league have to go through such a dark and troublesome adventure like we do. Same old, same old Doesn’t look anything’s changed here from E16. Moving outside... (and yikes again at that Torkoal torture scene) Huh, it’s a Stufful this time instead. Pretty good Pokemon, but I can’t use it in this run, unfortunately :/ So what will I find here? Fucking hell. So checking the monotype guide, doesn’t look I have a lot of options for the first gym area. Strangely thought I'd get an Alolan Meowth or Rattatta here. Unfortunately, I’ve got to just prod through all of that. Me trying to avoid trainers... This game of stealth isn’t too hard tbh oh fuck A master of darkness is no master of stealth, it seems Hrnnnh I swear trainers stopping you is equivalent to harassment, really “Yo lemme stop you real quick to fuck your already tired mons up with my fully healed ones" 5 pokemon battles in totality and 6 levels increased… whoo, finally! Not surprisingly, this is where all the dark types hang around, according to the guide ... and bags of trash They’re pretty high levelled, has it changed from the last episode? I didn’t really explore this area the first time I played this, so I’m not sure. I am getting better at this. These aren't too bad imo, although Rattled ability would have been nice Holy hell these pokes are high levelled I think could probably beat Fern now with these levels. Can't think of anything more apt. KNEEL BEFORE YOUR QUEEN I'm not a huge fan of the speed loss but those stats look really good, and I've gotten a pretty useful ability for the first gym. So, that's it for this episode! I’ll probably defeat all the trainers in our area (while making doubly sure we don't go past the level cap), get one last mon and get to the story part of the game asap before we get on to the next episode. Thank you guys for following! Suggestions, thoughts, criticism, fanmail all accepted! You will die alone if you don't send me fanmail
  8. Sharpedonite

    Where is the sharpedonite? I've been looking in the adventurine woods for hours. HELP.
  9. For Some Reason, The Guy That's Supposed to be at the Pokeball Shop In the Obsidia Ward Isn't there, Did I, Miss, Something? Cause I Have Magnet Powder And Ralt's Corrupted Pokeball, What Else Did I Miss?
  10. E17 Lagggggggggg! Please help!

    Hey everyone, I just started episode 17 last night and am facing some issues. Hopefully this is the right place to ask for help. So I'm running E17 on a Win10 laptop with i5 sixth gen, 8GB RAM and a 2GB graphic card, all drivers updated. However, in spite of having specs like these, E17 of Reborn seems to be lagging like crazy on my laptop this time. I've been playing Reborn since episode 12 and have never faced such performance issues before. If I were to describe the problems specifically, the pointer in the menu (on pressing X) moves extremely slowly to the next options, the attacks are always executed 3-4 seconds after you confirm them in pokemon battles and the worst problem being the overworld sprites moving too slow. I tried using Cheat Engine and RM_FPS_Control to improve the situation but they didn't help much either. A slight improvement, yes, but not good enough as was the case until episode 16. I'd be highly obliged if someone could share some solutions rectify the issue or confirm if this is a common problem that would be patched later. Thanks in advance!
  11. Where to find Bounsweet in Pokemon Reborn

    Anyone knows where to find Bounsweet in Pokemon reborn? Now that Pokemon Reborn has been updated with Gen 7 Pokemon, I've been looking for Bounsweet since I need a grass type on my team.
  12. Shiny hunt riolu!?

    So I found Riolu but it is a egg and I am trying to shiny hunt but I don't know if it would look shiny when I first see it in the hatch screen or on the Pokemon screen please help this could save me some time.
  13. Is Reborn Hardcore really HARDCORE?

    I kinda like how the party system and everything else goes on in Reborn Hardcore, especially the fact that most trainers are using evolved pokemon in the game, such as facing Haxorus in 7th street where we had to face an axew in the normal version. However, this "Alternate" team is something that I'm not getting. Firstly, I like the Mega Evolution part, but I don't get which team is actually powerful. for instance, I honestly wanted a challenge against Radomus and Serra, but their singles team in hardcore was a pushover. In the normal version, I lost to them at least 6 to 7 times. Then again, I destroyed Shelly in the normal version, but it took me like, 3 to 4 times to beat Shelly in hardcore. I cant honestly understand the difference.
  14. Honchcrow with shadow ball

    Does anyone have over a honchcrow with shadow ball learnt? I don't have much though.....would be better if it was level 24 or above. Am I asking too much? :-)
  15. Custom battle theme Mod operation

    I downloaded the custom battle mod......installed it as per instruction. But exactly what should I be seeing? I don't get how the mod works. will anyone explain please?
  16. So, I thought that a little customization wouldn't hurt and that led me to change sprites (of the Pokémon obviously!). Gen 6 animated sprites seem to be a lot popular, so I'm collecting sprites from the net, which are .gif files. I tested out some of the sprites myself and it seems that I am facing no buggy gaming so far. However, THERE IS ONE SLIGHT DISSATISFACTION.......the sprites appear to be a bit "small" in size (just a tiny bit). So I would really appreciate if anyone knew how to fix this(optional). Therefore, if anyone is interested, can you help me out in collecting them, like sharing the work? I have already started collecting gen 6 sprites of gen 1 Pokémon. Will anybody help out by collecting as well? (it's ok if you don't want to tho). If anyone is interested in grabbing a folder full of gen 6 sprites, let me know. OR if there is anyone who has accomplished such a feat, then pls share too! :-) Pls, note that custom shinies are not available (if people want them that is).....and of course, there is no animated sprites for PULSE and Dimensional Rift Pokémon. Here's the link for getting the sprites....... (Credits to Pkparaiso & Smogon and their community for the sprites) http://www.pokestadium.com/tools/sprites
  17. Changing pokemon sprites?

    [Sorry if I am discussing the topic in the wrong section...] So I was wondering.....If the trainer sprite can be changed, Mods can be used as skins for pokegears and other stuff, then can we replace the pokemon sprites? I mean the black and white pokemon sprites are all .gif files, right? Even if they were available in the net, can we change pokemon sprites?
  18. What if the pokemon reborn game was translated into an anime by OLM Inc. the official animation company that does the main Pokemon series, who would you want to direct it, based on what animation style and who would you want to cast for the main characters - Vero, Kuro, Alice, Cain, Fern, Victoria, Anna, Arclight, Blake, Cal, Heather ect... (both japanese and english dub)...
  19. Hi yes I think some of you have seen me talk about adapting Reborn Chronicles into a game. Well, it turns out I'd have to wait for Reborn to be finished to even get started on the game, and god knows how long that'll be (although I promise it won't take a billion years maybe). So I've decided to switch gears, and turn it into a webcomic! It will be updated at my own pace, so no projected release dates will be posted, or progress bars (Ame and I do dev work differently lol). Foreward History has been part of our lives since birth, and throughout life we make our own paths, and make our own history. But what about this city? What secrets lie within Reborn? That's the job I was assigned; to collect and archive all past records of Reborn City. But why did Ame pick such a reclusive bookkeeper like myself? What does she see in me? Maybe it's the fact that I'm practically a blank slate, ready to carve my name in the surface. Or I'm just another expendable. Who knows? I sure as hell don't. Summary The story follows Reborn's bookkeeper, Jasper, as he travels across the Reborn region in search of documentation of the old Reborn City. On his journey, he faces many challenges from tangles with ferocious wild Pokemon, to his inner struggles as a person trying to find his place in the world. Lame, I know. But this has always been something I've been super excited about sharing lol. Thank you for taking the time to read and consider!
  20. Pokemon: A Call to Arms, Chapter 2

    Please keep a couple things in mind: The fangame Pokemon: Light Platinum is referenced here with the Zhery and Lauren regions. Nothing else about the game will be spoiled in later chapters, but I wanted to give a nod to what I believed was a well-made fangame. Also, this is possibly the last chapter placed in Reborn. Last but not least, I made a slight alteration to the Gym system, where they have the main leader (say, Amaria) taking challenges during the day, and at night, a substitute GL takes his/her place if they want to get some sleep, but not close the gym to challengers. Now, enough with the monologue--let's get this story posted. Chapter Two: Second Start As we walked, I felt guilt and pain. Yet again, I felt shame at my own cowardice, and wished I could take it all back. I could remember all the Pokemon in my team clearly, like they were right in front of me. My first team member was Elisa, who I’d traded my starter Pokemon, a Marshtomp, for. She was from another region, with the extremely rare fairy type. Trading a level 27 for a level 6 probably wasn’t my wisest idea to date, but it was very worth the risk. At the time, I was a casual trainer, not challenging the league but just training with my friends. My brother Eric had long outstripped me, challenging the league and winning badges. He wanted to be as strong as our father, Norman, the Normal Type gym leader. He ended up being stronger, my dad proudly handing him his badge on TV. I had watched the battle, studying them both. My brother and I had very different styles, with him wanting his Pokemon to take the hit and walk it off, while I wanted them to dodge everything. My Marshtomp had a low speed stat, and we didn’t get along. When a trader from Unova had come along, I was fascinated with the strange Pokemon he brought. Marshtomp and I said our goodbyes and I swapped him out for Jade, later to be re-named Elisa. She and I did very well in battle, as she used Double Team to dodge attacks, Draining Kiss to restore her HP when she was hit, and Confusion to push enemies away while damaging and disorienting them. When she evolved to Kirlia, and later Gardevoir, we began talking telepathically, and soon we began considering the League Challenge. I remembered that day, replaying it in my head. We were in my bedroom, Elisa sitting on my bed, me stargazing through my window. “Maybe we should challenge the League like Eric said. It couldn’t hurt, right?” I said, leaning back in my chair. She tilted her head, and I could hear her thoughts. “Perhaps this league isn’t right for us, though. You’ve shown no interest in the Hoenn gym leaders, but I’ve seen you looking through books and websites covering the Zhery and Lauren Leagues, their regions, and the native Pokemon. If you get a Pokedex, then we could use that to travel there.” It was true, I had always been more interested in foreign regions. Plus, there was little fun in taking on a league my big brother had already beaten. “It’d be fun, I think. Sure, I’d be away from home, but I have a phone so I could call every once in a while. I’d be able to make new friends, put together a good team, and we could all get stronger.” I said. Elisa stood, walking to my side. Staring out the window with me, she said “I’ll go wherever you do. We’re a team, and a good one at that. We can talk to your mom in the morning; it’s already midnight. You need to get some sleep, alright?” I nodded, already feeling sleep tugging at my eyelids. The very next day, we were on a ferry to the Zhery region. After an hour of walking we arrived at my friend’s house. Cory had been silent the whole way, while Mira had repeatedly tried to strike up conversation. I’d given her short, unhelpful responses, knowing I should talk but not in the best mood. I knocked on the door, waiting patiently. After a moment, I knocked again, thinking maybe he was asleep. After all, he did work night shifts… I tested the doorknob, finding it unlocked. Slowly walking inside, I saw a Zangoose in the adjacent room, growling at me. “Easy, Havoc. It’s me. Where’s Ionas?” I said. A voice issued from down the hall, saying “Right here. You caught me getting dressed, sorry ‘bout that.” Ionas, a substitute Water Type gym leader, came out of his bedroom and greeted us. We sat down at his table, watching as he got prepped to go to the gym. “So, Seth, how have you been? I haven’t seen you in a while, I was starting to get worried you’d gotten mugged.” my friend said. I smiled slightly, saying “Why would I be mugged? I own nothing of value, and anybody who looks at me knows it.” I paused. “I… need to ask a favor of you.” I waited for his response, and as he nodded to me to continue, I said “You’ve been wanting to sell a Water type. I don’t have any money, but I was hoping to borrow it. I’m going back to Hoenn-you know what that means, right?” A soft smile lit his face. “It’s about time you went back for them. She’s a Milotic named Undai. She’s got a defensive moveset, but she’s right up your alley. Take her-no charge. Don’t argue,” he held his hand up, making me close my mouth. “You helped me catch half my team, and you held on to them when I had to leave the region. You trained them, taught me, and I saw a side of you that made me believe in you. This is my way of repaying you. I’d even come with you, but I need to clear that with Ame.” He pulled an Ultra Ball out of a drawer, tossing it to me. “Go get your friends back. If you need me, I’ll be there.” I nodded, smiling. I should have figured he’d do this. “Thanks, Ionas. Don’t tell me you’re actually going to drink that…” I said, watching him lift a mug of what he considered ‘coffee’ to his lips. Bracing himself, he downed the whole mug as fast as he could, grimacing severely at the bitter taste. He gagged, making us laugh. Wiping his mouth, Ionas said “Yeah, keep laughing. I hate it, but it’s all that keeps me awake at work. Get out of my house, you lazy street rat.” We all left, still laughing, heading for the train station. When it came to part ways, Ionas and I shook hands, and bid each other goodbye. *** We were on the train, on an intercontinental railroad. Spanning an enormous ocean, it was a marvel of human construction. Cory had a Vaporeon in his lap who was purring contentedly as he stroked her spine. Mira was reading a book, and I was just staring at the Ultra Ball. Memories floated over my vision, threatening to strip me of my good mood. I remembered one particular day with Elisa more prominently than the others, and it sparked an idea within my mind. I was sitting on a log, and she was across from me, staring into my eyes. I was trying to use telepathy, and failing miserably. She was gently coaching me, encouraging me to keep trying. She had opened a link between us, but it was one way-from my mind to hers. I was trying to peer inside her mind, and while she swore she wasn’t resisting, I couldn’t change the direction of the link. “Can you go over it again? I think I’m missing something.” I said, trying not to wince at the headache I was developing. She broadened the link, allowing her to speak in my mind. “Focus on the link. You can already see it-the pink/blue line connecting us. Now just focus on relaxing all the various parts of your mind. Once you’ve done that, feel the link. It’s narrow, only flowing one way, much like a small river. You need only make it wider, allow the energy to head both ways, side by side, forming a circuit. If you can do that, you’ve succeeded.” I nodded, glad she was so patient. My own frustration was nearly palpable in the air, and I felt stupid. I forced myself to relax, feeling the link return to its narrowed state. When I had calmed down, I felt around for the link, found it, and ignored everything else. I tapped my finger against the log, contemplating the intrusive psychic presence. Elisa was using it to monitor my emotions, but allowed me to keep my privacy. Perhaps I could use that. I began raising memories at random, putting them in front of the link. I could feel it trying to avoid them-they were blocking it from accessing my emotions. I forced one through the link, allowing my consciousness to follow it, making a blind spot for myself. Suddenly, I could feel Elisa's mind, her surprise and confusion, then a mild sense of satisfaction. I had essentially made a Trojan Horse... hiding within a seemingly innocent object to sneak past her defenses. I smiled, pulling back into my own head and letting her speak. “Nicely done, Seth. I didn’t expect you to get through so easily; most Psychic Type trainers take months to even push an emotion through.” My smile broadening, I said “I have a good teacher. What’s next?” She laughed, saying “You rest. I can feel your headache, and that’s only going to distract you. When you’re better, you can try different methods of widening the link, and when you’ve mastered that, you’ll have to break my defenses-and create your own. I’m also hungry. Let’s get some berries.” Back in the present, I decided to try speaking to the Milotic inside the Ultra Ball. I had little else to do for a good ten hour train ride, and though I had never succeeded in breaking her defenses, I could certainly alter existing links. Perhaps I could make one of my own… Relaxing as she taught me, I focused on the ball. With my mind, I poked at it, pushing past its shell into the murky interior. I could feel a mind, pulsing with life, calmly snoozing. With surprisingly little effort, I pushed inside it, just to the edges of her consciousness. Her mind woke, and I could sense her observing me curiously. I struggled to not only maintain the link, but widen it, and after a moment, I succeeded. In my mind, I saw the two of us, floating in a vast sea of black. I spoke first. “Can you hear me? I’m Seth. Are you Undai?” She nodded, saying “Yes. It... might be nice to meet you, Seth. How are you in my mind?” “My Gardevoir, Elisa, taught me a few things. This is the first time I’ve ever made a mental link though. Apparently I’m your new trainer. I hope you don’t mind…” I said awkwardly. Undai shook her head, chuckling. "That's the first time I've had a trainer ask me for permission." Satisfied, I said “I need your help, but we’d be facing a lot of tough opponents. We won’t be alone, but it’ll still be dangerous. I don’t want to put you through anything you don’t want to do. You don’t have to choose right now; we still have ten hours on this train.” Suddenly, another link formed. It was weak, filled with what could best be described as ‘mental static.’ The static passed, the link strengthened, and for an instant, I could see Elisa. Just as I reached out to grab her, the image vanished. The link disappeared. She had been forcibly cut off. Conflicted emotions flashed through me. I knew Undai could see me breaking down, but I didn't care. I was slowly going insane from all my inner torment. When I regained control of myself, she nodded slowly at nothing in particular, then said "I'll help you. No one should go through what you have. This... Team Prometheus your thoughts are so cluttered with will not succeed in breaking us." I stood, saying "Thanks, Undai. I owe you one. I'll close the link and let you sleep. Sorry you had to see all that..." She smiled. "Sometimes it's best to show others these things. Keeping them locked away inside will only serve to make it worse." *** (Cory's POV) I watched him, curious. It felt odd to see someone capable of beating three leagues reduced to so little. I felt truly sorry for him, trying to imagine how he felt. I could tell he cared about his team; leaving them behind like he did must torture him. I knew a fair amount about Team Prometheus. They relied on brute force rather than careful strategies. A common Pokemon in their teams was either Tyranitar or Golem. They also used Poison and Dark types, but their personal favorite was, in accordance with mythology, Fire Type. They generally had a single squad assigned to each city, with six people and a squad leader. In some larger cities, they had two. It would be hard to avoid detection. I had a few trustworthy friends, as did Mira, and we could hide with them if necessary. I remembered what Ionas had said. I saw a side of you that made me believe in you. Perhaps there was more to Seth than met the eye. Leaning back in my seat, I resumed stroking Rika. It was going to be a boring train ride, but once we arrived in Hoenn, I knew things were going to get far more fast paced. I smiled, pulling out an MP3 player and putting in the earbuds. One of my favorite songs began playing, and I slowly nodded my head to the beat. Yes, when we got back, it would be dangerous... but we'd be ready. *** (Mira's POV) I was worried. We were going up against team Prometheus, who had taken over Hoenn in three days. They were powerful, dangerous, and their leader was almost certainly unhinged. And yet... Cory smiled. It was the first time I'd seen a true smile from him in a year. Since the Prometheans had taken over, he had grown increasingly introverted and callous to his surroundings. It had pained me to see this from him, since he was like a brother to me, although we were only cousins. It was good to see him smile again. Seeing Seth, practically a living legend, had given him hope. Cory wanted to fight, to take Team Prometheus down a peg. He wanted to avenge all the lives ruined by them. He was a vigilante, always fighting for those who were too weak to fight for themselves. I plucked at my sleeve, remaining silent. If Cory decided to follow Seth, then I would too. I only hoped his happiness would last... Aaaand that's the end of Chapter 2! I hope you enjoyed it, and if you see things I should change, feel free to leave a comment below. I'm currently halfway through the third chapter, so you should see that sometime soon, but after that.... I don't know for certain. I have other books I'm writing, schoolwork to keep up with, and I'd like to get out of the house at some point. That being said, I want to see this fanfiction completed and completed well, so I will be putting significant time into this. Thank you for reading, and have a wonderful day/noon/night. ~Decibel. IMPORTANT EDIT: I changed Gawain the Dragonair to Undai the Milotic. This is basically because it makes more sense for Ionas to have a water type on hand, and I didn't know what to do with Gawain once Seth gets his team back, and I have NEVER used Dragonair correctly. However, I do know how to use Milotic, and it is my preferred Pokemon, so I hope none of you mind.
  21. Okay, some readers saw me try to write a story based on Pokemon Reborn. Well after writing I did not quite like the quality of the work, as it was definitely not my best work. Though hasty, I have decided to scrap the original and create one with a bit of a darker undertone. Chapter 1: Champion Arise "Delphox, now!" a trainer barks to his companion. The Firefox answers the command of its trainer, fire spewing from the end of its wand. On the receiving end of the Mystic Fire is a colossal Emboar, who charges forward, using Flare Blitz to counter. The giant boar storms through the flames and crashes right into the magical fox. Delphox flails, unable to endure the tremendous strength of the Fire and Fighting Type Pokemon. It falls flat on its back, twitching a few times before it stops moving. Behind the owner of the fallen Fire and Psychic Type, a horn blares loudly. The siren sound signals that his Pokemon is no longer able to battle. Clenching his fist, clearly frustrated, he reaches for the Pokeball at his belt. The small round orb enlarges, allowing him to shoot a bam of red light at the unconscious Delphox. The fox's body turns into that same red light, as it is retracted into the ball. He says nothing else, but hears the sound of the crowd around him. It is all boos, followed by japes and a mixture of unfriendly curses aimed toward him. He ignores the group of angry spectators in the stadium. His eyes turn up to the large screen, seeing the blown up image of himself and the other trainer. The opponent, Derek, has all six of his Pokemon active in the battle, save for the fact that five of them are in the red after the bouts with his team. He, on the other hand, has been reduced to his last partner. Above his picture is his name, Raviel. "Oh, it looks like Raviel is down to his last Pokemon," an announcer shouts through the sound systems. "Meanwhile, Derek still has his entire team. Will Raviel's last Pokemon be able to make an amazing sweep and win him the title of Kalos League Champion?" "No way, he sucks," someone from the crowd jeers, answered soon after by laughter. With his last Pokemon in hand, he ignores all the taunts and booing that surrounds him. Unlike the normal red and white balls that most trainers carry, this one is a bit different. Strange circles of green surround a black surface, known only as a Dusk Ball. A ball that is best to capture those in caves and at night. With a subtle grin, he hurls the ball out... And in a flash of light comes his final Pokemon. The evil-looking Shadow Pokemon apppears with a wide grin, eyes glowing red as it looks unto the Emboar that towers over it. "It looks like Raviel's last Pokemon is Gengar!" the announcer shouts, "No doubt a trump card that he has used throughout the tournament, but will it be enough to win him the title of Champion?" The crowd again answers with boos, clearly hating the trainer and his partner. Again, he pays them no mind. He only nods, and Gengar attacks. The ghastly Pokemon seems to be perfectly in sync with its trainer as it floats through the air. Emboar reacts to its trainer's startled command, aiming to crush the ghostly doppelganger with a Hammer Arm. Yet when the boar's fist comes crashing down, it fazes right through Gengar. "Gengar," Raviel says, "Its time..." The hated trainer lifts his arm up in the air, showcasing a most unusual bracelet clinging to his arm. Suddenly, it begins to glow. On the field, Gengar opens its mouth, letting its long tongue to come slither out. Kept in the creature's mouth is a mysterious stone that matches the one around Raviel's wrist. It too begins to glow. "Oh no," Derek shouts, realizing what is about to happen, "Emboar stop him! Use Flare Blitz." Yet it is too late, as Gengar transforms on the field. The bright light has brought the crowd to a hush, all watching the metamorphosis. Gengar appears to sink into the ground while spiked frills seem to burst about its body. Lastly a golden third eye opens up on its forehead. "Unbelievable," the announcer breaks the silence. "Raviel managed to keep this trump card hidde throughout the entire leage battles. Mega Gengar!!!" "Gengar," Raviel says coldly. "Geng?" his Pokemon cocks its head, waiting for its master's orders. "Wipe him out," is his trainer's answer. "Gengar!" ... "Oof," Raviel grunts as a fist is thrown into his stomach. He falls to his knees, overcome by the pain as a boot lands against his cheek. The league champion lays sprawled out onto the floor, his lip split. He does not move, as the barrage of kicks comes from two additional men. All that he can do is curl up and endure the pain. "Hey!" a young woman's voice barks to the trio, "What the hell are you doing?" The three see the woman to be a white haired beauty with icy blue eyes that seem to burn into their souls. A gaze alone fills them with dread, causing them to leave Raviel be, bolting down the alley from which they came. Feeling the bombardment over, Raviel gets to his knees, coughing up blots of blood. When the throbbing in his gut subsides, he looks up to his rescuer and sees the girl as well. "What are you doing?" the girl asks, offering a hand. "Getting my ass kicked," he answers. "I saw, but why?" she insists, reaching into a pack to find a cloth to wipe the blood off his face. "Did you catch my battle?" Raviel says, dabbing away the blood from his split lip. "You were good," she states. "I'm not well liked," he answers, handing her back the crimson-stained rag. "A few of my fans were thanking me for making them lose all the money they bet against me." The girl nods, "I noticed. I don't understand why." "I'd rather not get into it," he says, dusting himself off, "I don't need another enemy." He pauses a moment before realizing something, "Wait, who are you anyways?" "My name is Ame," the snow-haired woman answers. "I come from a distant region called Reborn." "I'll pass," Raviel denies her. Ame jumps at him before he wonders off, "But your such a strong trainer. The way you and your Gengar battled was mesmerizing." "I really don't want to go to a whole new place to be hated," Raviel sighs, walking past her. "It's a new start!" she shouts. He stops, "What do you mean?" "Reborn is a place of renewal," Ame answers. "You will not be the first person there with a dark past. No one will know who you were, just who you are." Such words are almost too much for Raviel to bear, as if he is about to burst into tears. He wipes his eyes on his sleeve to not show her any weakness. "I would give anything to get that chance," he looks at her. "Alright, I'll help you, to have a new start." At his belt he grabs the Dusk Ball, and tosses it in front of Ame. She watches as his faithful Gengar emerges, grinning like he always does. Yet when he turns to his master, the Shadow Pokemon finds a most disturbing sight. Raviel has the Pokeball that houses his powerhouse, and is in the process of pulling it apart. Gengar frowns as he watches the Dusk Ball that he had been captured since he was a Ghastly be ripped in half. "What are you doing?" Ame gasps. "I am starting over, that means my Pokemon too," he says. "The rest of my team will do fine with other trainers..." "Gengar?" his Pokemon looks sad. "You and I have been together too long for you to listen to another trainer," he looks at his faithful friend. "So I'm setting you free." Gengar looks confused, "Geng-" "No," Raviel shouts at the Shadow Pokemon. "You're not going with me. Get out of here!" Gengar frowns for a moment or two, but the frown flips to its usual smile. It looks to Ame, and then to its former master before it dives into the floor, disappearing among the shadows." "Are you sure about that?" Ame asks. "Yeah," Raviel answers, tossing the pieces of the Dusk Ball to the ground. "Let's go."
  22. This is a fun little story I have had in mind of writing today. I am not entirely sure that it belongs here, so do not yell if I'm posting in the wrong spot. Now, ladies and gentlemen, sit down and relax, as I spin a tale of an adventure reborn anew... Also if members would like to be included in the story, please message me with your desired name and Pokemon. I'll try to incorporate everyone. Chapter 0: Champion Reborn "And your name is...Amethyst?" the young man looks at white haired woman curiously. "Ame is fine, Derek," she answers, clearly knowledgeable of him. "Will you listen to a request?" Derek nods, finding a seat on a rock as he listens to the girl's tale. She recants of a region far off in a dire need of powerful trainers. Though he appears to listen, he is rather uninterested. His eyes shift to the trees, watching a Darmanitan swing from branch to branch as it playfully chases after a Pichu. A Salamence careening across the sky catches his gaze, carrying a few Bagons on its back. He smiles to himself. Ame notices his lack of focus, clearing her throat to catch his attention. "Did you catch any of that?" she asks, suppressing her irritancy. "Yeah, yeah," he answers, "Reborn Region in danger, blah-blah. You need the other region champions to come help. Why don't you ask them?" "I did," she answers, disappointment lingering in her voice. "All of them were dealing with problems in their own region. Even your brother refused to help." "Lance?" Derek looks at her with astonishment, "That's not like him..." "Well, he did," she looks crossed, "You're the only champion that seems to be doing nothing." "Kanto is a bit boring," he says, leaning back on the rock formation, "I'm the only champion that can travel." "Then travel to Reborn!" Ame demands. He lets out a yawn, "I think I'll perform my champion duties instead. Just stay in my den and wait for challengers." Ame looks around and takes in the place he calls his den. It is an enormous cavern that houses several acres of land. A forest surrounds them while a mountain sits off in the distance. She even had to cross a few lakes just to get to him at the base of the mountain. And every single Pokémon belongs to the Champion of Kanto. The woman with the white hair is not ready to give up, as an idea comes to mind, "Then I challenge you!" "Oh?" he sits upright. "But if I win, you come to the Reborn Region!" she shouts at him. "Alright," he agrees. "We will have a one-on-one match to decide it then. Fair enough?" She nods. Derek takes his fingers in his mouth, and lets out a shrill whistle. A second later, a shadow looms over Amethyst, crashing in front of her with so much force it craters the ground. Dust kicks up, as the ferocious form of a Dragonite has appeared. Despite how menacing his Pokemon looks, she shows no sight of fright, throwing out a Pokeball of her own. In a flash of light, an Absol appears. The disaster Pokemon meets its opponent with a vicious howl. "Absol, Swords Dance!" Ame commands. Her faithful companion becomes enveloped with blades, his attack power skyrockets. "Not bad," Derek smirks, "Dragonite, Dragon Dance." His beast boosts his own stats, raising speed and attack. "Now, fly!" The dragon soars to the skies, clear out of range of Absol. Higher and higher it climbs, until it is only a speck. And then, a light rockets down at Absol in the form of a Hyper Beam. Ame bellows a command, as it dodges at the last second. The ground around them is shredded, but Drake keeps his composure. In the wreckage, Absol emerges, having escaped the brunt of the attack. "Now, Absol," Ame gives her commands, reaching for the necklace draping around her elegant neck, "Mega Evolve!" Again Absol is enveloped in light, as it body changes. Its fur lengthens, appearing to gain wings. The horn along its head thickens, curving like a crescent moon. The light breaks off it, as Mega Absol takes the battlefield. "What the heck is that?" Derek gasps. "I guess you haven't been to Kalos," she says with a smile. "Its called Mega-Evolution. Now, Mega Absol, Night Slash." Its horn becomes enveloped in a dark shroud, as it thrusts it like a sword. Darkness shreds from it, the black shockwave shreds through the air, and strikes Derek's Dragonite. His faithful beast plummets, taking a critical hit from the attack. "Dragonite!" he cries out to his partner, "Don't give up, use Dragon Claw!" "Don't let it," Ame orders, "Finish it with Night Slash!" Hearing his master's command snaps Dragonite from the freefall. It fans its wings just before it hits the ground. An aura surrounds its claws, its arms glowing with a blue hue. Dragonite roars as it meets Mega Absol's shadowed horn. Their attacks meet, erupting in an explosion. Both Pokémon are consumed in the blast, covered in a light that blinds both trainers. The light fades and the dust clears, and both Pokémon appear among the uprooted stones and fallen trees. Absol has fallen, losing its mega-form. It does not appear it can continue. Dragonite leans against a pile of stones, yet it remains standing. With a sliver of its health, and high level, it has emerged victorious. "Looks like I win," Derek says, reaching for a Pokeball at his hip, "Dragonite, time to rest, buddy." A red light hits his dragon, and he is sucked into the Pokeball. Ame does the same for her Absol, placing a kiss on the ball when her Pokémon returns. She hides her disappointment, thanking her partner with a soft prayer. Having no more champions to call on, she turns to leave... "Hey wait," Derek calls out for her, causing her to turn. "Ame, tell me, are there other trainers like you?" "Yes," she answers, hope found in her words, "Some even stronger." A smile reaches his face, "Well then...it looks like you got yourself a champion. Count me in!"
