“7. alain cries, i cry, we all cry” is the title for today. it’s… not wrong 😛

note: all former italics have been underlined to help you see them better and stuff 😛

Chapter 7
X POV, 9:06 PM
X was worried about Alain. Or actually, scratch that – he was really, really worried. Before that day, he’d never seen more emotion out of him than a slight smile. In the past two hours, he’d seen him scream, cry, and curse at Lysandre more times than he could count. But he couldn’t blame him – he’d seen Lance fall. He’d felt the way his heart nearly stopped in his chest as the Bisharp flew over the edge, and he knew that by the time he’d moved, it was too late. Then Alain had been screaming, again, and X couldn’t understand how everything just kept getting worse and worse for him. He wanted to help, but… he admittedly didn’t know how. Instead, he just turned to his friends, and tried to lead them like Y always did. They had to get to the Megalith, and quickly. 

“Between the five of us, we have three fliers,” X said, thinking out loud. “Kuro’s probably too tired to carry anybody other than just Alain, which leaves Vulcan and Tera to carry two each. Trevor, do you think they can do that?” Trevor nodded, and pulled two Pokeballs off of his waist. 

“They’ll have to,” he said. “X, you and I-” He paused. “Alain, what are you looking at?” He asked. X whipped around. Alain stared blankly at a media copter, which was lowering itself to the ground. Alain didn’t move. 

“Alain, it’s just a media copter. Let’s go,” X said firmly. Immediately, he regretted it. He had to be nicer to him, dangit-

“That’s not a media copter, X,” Alain said blankly. X hated how empty his friend’s voice sounded. He hated how he suddenly seemed to believe that there was nothing to fight for anymore, and that nothing mattered- “That’s Malva.” Then Alain’s voice turned to absolute poison as he stalked forwards, and X recoiled. What was up with him? The only Malva he knew was Elite Four Malva-

“Alain, there you are!” The helicopter landed on the ground, and the door swung open. Malva – definitely Elite Four Malva, too – sat in the front seat, one hand on the driving stick. “Let’s get going.” X stared at her, and at Alain. His friend didn’t move, and just clenched Kuro’s Pokeball tighter. 

“I betrayed him, Malva. Lysandre’s dead,” Alain said. X’s jaw went slack. Malva was here for Alain, which only meant… 

“You’re Team Flare,” X spat. He stalked forwards, standing protectively at Alain’s side. “You’re with Lysandre, you did all of this-

“I was,” Malva interrupted. “Yes, I was with Team Flare. Yes, I screwed up. We all did. But what do you mean, Lysandre’s dead?” Her eyes narrowed, and Alain looked down. He didn’t reply, and X stepped forwards again, swallowing. 

“He jumped. Off the top of Prism Tower.” The words sounded heavy, and they didn’t seem to settle right. Lysandre had fallen, of course. He couldn’t have survived. Not if Lance couldn’t. “We tried to stop him, but we couldn’t. I swear,” X promised. They had. At least, Grenousso had. They’d been too late. But a dead Lysandre was better than an alive Lysandre, right? 

“I see.” Malva’s voice was calm and flat, but X heard the slight hint of pain in her tone. He looked down. Should they have tried harder? “Well, I’ve rounded up all of Team Flare that we could find in the city. You need a ride to the Megalith, don’t you?” She asked. X froze. 

“How do you know about that?” He snapped. Malva stared at him, and then shrugged. 

“Connections,” was all she said. X narrowed his eyes. But then he looked at Trevor, and the two Pokeballs in his hands, and the open door of the helicopter. He sighed. 

“Yeah, we do.” The main door slid open, and X turned around to face the rest of his friends. “Let’s go, everybody.” They nodded, and all scurried into the helicopter. Alain didn’t move for a moment, and then followed them. X went last, and paused as he passed Malva. “Don’t try anything,” he muttered. She snorted, and then turned back to the front of the helicopter. She didn’t reply. X climbed into the helicopter, sliding the door shut behind him. He sat next to Alain, and tried to breathe. 

It was okay. Y was okay. They were on their way to the Megalith, and they’d free Chespie. They’d destroy it. The world would be safe, everything would go back to normal-

Not for all of us. He looked at Alain, and at the empty Ultra Ball he was rocking back and forth in his right hand. He flinched, and looked down. Arceus, he felt horrible

“Incoming call from Steven Stone,” Malva reported. They were flying high above Lumiose City, and X forced himself not to look down. He didn’t want to see what had happened to the city. Instead, he just nodded, and a screen appeared on one side of the helicopter. 

“Okay,” X said. Slowly, the image flickered into view. He made out the faces of both Steven and the Professor, along with Y and Mairin in the back. They looked okay-

“All right, everybody. While you’re on your way here, let me tell you what we know about the Megalith,” Steven started. X snorted to himself. Trust Steven to be the one to give a report on a magical rock. He nodded. “When we scanned it, we discovered it’s actually a giant mass of energy. A mass of energy that strongly resembles Zygarde’s,” Steven explained. X stiffened. Zygarde? I thought we were done with Zygarde. “In addition, we were able to pick up Chespie’s vital signs from within its core, along with his records located in the lab’s database.” Alain gripped Lance’s Ultra Ball tighter. X looked down. “It turns out that an accident caused Chespie to absorb some of Zygarde’s energy – that’s why he’s been in a coma for such a long time. It seems like the Megalith absorbed Chespie to obtain that energy in the first place.” X’s head began to spin. He nodded, trying to process everything that Steven was saying. Chespie had Zygarde’s energy via an accident. The rock had Zygarde’s energy via Chespie. But still, it didn’t make sense-

“Now,” Professor Sycamore started. “The Megalith is on the hunt for its next energy source.” The screen changed from a hologram to a map. On one end was a blinking red dot, a line drew straight from it to the other end. To Anistar City. “The Sundial, in Anistar City.” He was right. 

“Anistar City?” Alain asked numbly. X winced. 

“Right. The Sundial is a rock that supposedly came from space – it contains a lot of the energy that is released by Pokemon when they undergo Mega Evolution, actually. We think the Megalith wants to gain access to that energy too,” the Professor continued. X stared back at the hologram, and tried to meet Y’s eyes through the screen. She just stared at him, fidgeting nervously. He looked down. 

“But… why?” Trevor asked. Nobody spoke for a moment. Then he heard Steven sigh, and X knew. Bad news.

“If the Megalith and the Sundial come in contact, they will then merge as a result. And if that happens-” Steven took another deep breath. “It’ll create such a huge burst that it will likely wipe out every living being on this planet.” X froze. Excuse me? Wipe out… every living being on this-

Arceus. Steven means the world could actually end. We could all die. Not just Lance, not just Lysandre, but all of us-

“Stupid Lysandre!” Alain screamed. He threw Lance’s empty Ultra Ball to the ground as hard as he could. It clattered on the steel floors, and X winced. Everybody turned to stare at him. “He said he’d recreate this world at any cost. He means-” Alain choked, and X looked down, trying to pretend he hadn’t just seen him crying all over again. 

“We won’t let that happen,” he swore trying to remain calm. He turned back to the hologram, where almost everybody was staring at Alain with nothing but absolute horror in their eyes. He couldn’t blame them. “Professor! We have to rescue Chespie, and stop the Megalith, even if we die trying,” he spat. From the back of the hologram, he saw Y stare at him, and then she smiled. X looked down, and then smiled back. 

“We’ll be there,” Steven said firmly. He stared at the screen for a moment, and then leaned back slightly, voice dropping. “X. I don’t know what happened on the top of Prism Tower-” Everything. “-but are you and Alain all right? Do you need anything?” He asked. X looked away, watching the way Alain’s fists were shaking, and Lance’s empty Ultra Ball still discarded on the ground. Alain wasn’t okay. He needed his partner back. But that wasn’t something Steven – or anybody, for that matter – could fix. They had to start small. What did… What do I need, right about now? X looked back up at the screen. 

“We’ll be all right.” He only hoped that was true. “As for me…” His hands went to his belt. “Probably three Revives, and a few Max Potions, for my team. That’s all, at least for now.” Steven nodded at him. X turned to Alain. Then he froze, and swore to himself. He shouldn’t have said that. 

“Alain?” Steven pressed. The trainer in question didn’t reply for a moment, and X watched as he took a couple deep breaths. He looked down and away. 

“I-” His voice cracked. “Just a Max Potion, please. For Kuro. And-” The helicopter turned, and Lance’s empty Ultra Ball rolled and clattered against the wall. “Four revives. For the rest of them.” X couldn’t help but wince. He knew that had to have hurt so, so much for Alain to say. He forced himself to look up at the screen, and slowly, an understanding crossed Steven’s face. 

“Alain, I’m so sorry,” he said quietly. Alain didn’t look up. “I can get you two those items when we’re back together again, okay?” X nodded numbly. He had to, because he knew Alain wouldn’t. 

“Thanks,” X said. Steven just nodded sadly, and then it was the Professor’s face in the center. He just stared for a moment, and then spoke. 

“Alain, I know Steven already said this. And I know you aren’t looking at me right now,” he started. “But I’m so sorry. That’s-” He paused. “It’s terrible. I wish there was something we could do. I’m sorry, and I hope you-”

“And I don’t want your pity!” Alain choked out. X looked down, when the Professor winced. “Pity doesn’t bring Lance back. Pity doesn’t change the fact that it was my fault, or that I failed him-” His voice caught on what X could only assume was a sob, and Lance’s Ultra Ball clattered to land against Alain’s boot. It was silent for a moment, sparring Alain’s crying. But again, X couldn’t blame him. Losing any one of his teammates would shatter him completely. And Alain didn’t even have the time to grieve, or to heal, because it was all back to saving the world all over again. In the end, it just wasn’t fair

“Alain?” Mairin sounded afraid. X hated that. She was too young for all of this – too young to watch their world end, too young to lose her Chespin to Lysandre’s greed. “What do you mean, bring Lance back?” And she didn’t even understand. She didn’t understand that he was gone, and gone forever. 

“I-” Alain took a deep, shaky breath. “I don’t want to have this conversation anymore. X… Please.” For the first time, Alain looked up, meeting him in the eye. X looked away, immediately. Alain had been crying – he knew that. His eyes were red and swollen, and X knew he deserved none of it. He just nodded at him, and then looked back to the screen. Please meant please say something, and please meant turn the conversation away to anything except for him. If nothing else, X could do that. 

“We’ll save Chespie, Mairin. Okay?” He tried to sound reassuring, and pretend that he wasn’t shaken all the way to the core. Mairin nodded, eyes fearful. X looked down out of the window. They were on their way to Anistar City, for sure. Lumiose was behind them, and so were the vines. 

“Thanks, X,” Mairin said softly. He smiled at her. Then he smiled at Y – at Alain, at everybody. 

“Of course.” Then he ended the call with one swift press of a button, and prepared himself for the worst.

“What is that?” X stuttered, staring out the window. It looked like a Zygarde, almost – but it was made of stone, and moved across the ground using the crawling, brown and red vines. It had one eye, practically, made out of a vermillion crystal that matched the shape on its stomach. It reminded him of the red spot on Squishy’s belly. “Is that…”

“It’s the Megalith,” Alain said bitterly. He’d stopped crying. X was thankful for that. Together, they stood up, and wordlessly swung the helicopter door open. 

The wind blew into the copter immediately, chilling X to the bone. He tried not to shiver as he pulled Grenousso’s Pokeball off of his waist, preparing to throw it into the air. And somehow, Alain was already one step ahead of him. 

“Keystone, respond to my heart! Beyond evolution! Mega Evolve!” And then there was Kuro, diving out of the helicopter, Charizardite glowing just like Alain’s wrist. When the light cleared, revealing his jet black form, X knew. Alain’s grief wasn’t going to affect his ability to fight. Both he and Kuro were absolute beasts of rage, and they would tear Lysandre’s entire legacy apart. “Kuro, use-” Alain froze. X followed his gaze, and then swore under his breath. There was Sahara, the Mega Garchomp, tangled in the vines, screaming. He could make out Steven’s Mega Metagross flying through the air, with Y’s Sylveon, Velvet, on its back. They were aiming countless Flash Cannons and Moonblasts in all directions, but the vines kept coming-

A vine grabbed Titan by the leg. They entangled his entire frame, and then he was flipping. Over, upside down. Velvet screamed, and the Sylveon came crashing towards the ground, 200, 300 feet-

“Kuro, catch her!” Alain screamed. And the panic in Alain’s voice rattled X right to the core. He’s afraid, X knew. He’s afraid, because he can’t bear to watch another Pokemon die like Lance did. Alain, thank you-

Kuro roared. He shot down, faster than X had ever seen him. Then he was flying, wings tucked, right above the ground, faster and faster and faster-

Velvet fell, landing right on his back. X let out the breath caught in his throat. Then the helicopter was swooping forwards, faster and faster. And there was Y – standing in the doorway of Steven’s aircraft, both the Professor and Hoenn’s Champion at her side. Kuro cut both Titan and Sahara free with a Flamethrower, and then shot back up with Velvet on his back. They flew alongside the Megalith, and X couldn’t help but smile. They were all together again. They were going to fight. He cast a glance at Alain, whose gaze was fixed with nothing but sheer, hard determination. He was fighting for Lance, he knew. X would fight for him, for the rest of his friends. For Y, and for the entire world. He had to.

“Professor, do you know Chespie’s exact location?” Trevor asked, keying up the communicator again. X stared at the Megalith as Malva piloted the helicopter to face it from the front. He stared, into the gemstone core. Besides him, he let out Grenousso, and they immediately merged. He blinked, switching views. Then he was back to his own eyes. There, he almost said. It has to be, it has to-

“Our scans show Chespie is located somewhere within its core!” Professor Sycamore replied. X’s eyes widened. He exchanged one look with Grenousso. Exactly, he said to his partner. The Greninja nodded. You see it? 

I see it, Grenousso’s mind voice echoed. He turned to Alain. Arceus, maybe this was a terrible idea. But they had to, they had to at least try

“Grenousso and I can see him,” X said. Alain stared at him, eyes wide. He shook his head. There wasn’t time to explain. They didn’t have time for anything. “Professor-” He paused. That wasn’t who he needed permission from. He stopped, and turned to Alain. “Alain. Have Kuro on standby, in case we-” His voice cracked. “In case he falls.” Alain stared at him, and something flashed across his face. He looked down, for just a second. At the ground, hundreds of feet below them. Then he nodded, just slightly, and X barely saw it. But that was all he needed. He waited, for just a moment longer. The rock shifted. The crystals cleared. And then…

Now

Grenousso jumped, leaping out of the helicopter. In front of him, Kuro, Titan, and Sahara flanked him on all sides. X waited, watching. Through Grenousso’s eyes, then through his own. Back and forth, just until-

“Use Water Shuriken!” X screamed. Grenousso ripped the star off of his back, and it spiraled through the air. It flew, and lodged itself right in the crystal. Perfect. He fell, and then landed on Kuro’s back, right into place. X breathed. They did it. That was exactly it, that was exactly where Chespie was-

He heard Alain gasp, and X nodded. 

“He’s right there. Under the Shuriken,” X said firmly. “Everybody, head towards the Water Shuriken!” He yelled. Alain nodded back at him, and then Kuro was shooting forwards, Velvet and Grenousso perched on his back.  He launched out with a Flamethrower while Grenousso leapt through the air, striking out with Aerial Aces and Night Slashes. He landed on the vines, racing forwards, Kuro behind him. A few feet back, Titan fired off repeated Flash Cannons in all directions, shredding through vines in the blink of an eye. Sahara struck out with Dragon Claws, Hyper Beams, and Dragon Pulses, swerving through the air to dodge yet another vine. They were endless, it seemed. X watched, and couldn’t help but curse to himself. They weren’t any closer than they were five, ten minutes ago, no matter how long they fought for. The Water Shuriken – and Chespie, of course – were still so, so far away. 

“This is endless,” Alain spat. “We need more Pokemon, we need more fliers. I have Kestrel, but he needs a Revive, and you have Brute. Y has a couple more too, and-” He stopped, and X could have sworn he heard Alain curse under his breath. A vine shot through the air, entangling Kuro and halting his movement completely. “Kuro!” Alain screamed. His voice was easily lost in the wind, as he swore again. Velvet toppled off of his back, only to be caught by another vine. She let out a cry, and X flinched. Grenousso was next – X knew, as he felt the air being sucked out of his lungs, squeezing him tighter and tighter. Then there went Titan and Sahara, too slow to defend themselves from the absolute onslaught. Arceus, it was insane

“Kuro, use-”

And then there was a blinding flash, and a giant white beam. It shot forwards, shredding through the vines and smashing the Megalith right in the core. Grenousso was falling, as were Kuro, Velvet, and the rest of the team. Titan caught Velvet, and Grenousso landed on Kuro’s back, the dragon swooping up into the air, swerving past the vines. X stared, and then turned to find where at attack came from-

“Arceus,” he breathed. There were all eight Gym Leaders, plus Diantha. They had at least one Pokemon each out already, and-

That’s the entire League, X, apart from the Elite Four. That’s your entire Pokemon League, and they’re under your command, because you’re the- 

“Nice one, Champion,” Alain remarked, reading him exactly. X stared. I’m not really their Champion, he wanted to say, eyes landing on Diantha and her Gardevoir. But then he looked back to the Megalith – to the Sundial, blazing a brilliant scarlet, in the distance. To Y and Mairin, who he’d sworn to protect. Back to Alain. 

“Thanks,” he said. 

But maybe I can be. 

And this was his chance to prove it.

oh boy oh god oh here we gooooo 😛 so yeah. one last thing before the world is saved. or maybe… more than one? 😉

anyways. my favorite sentence of the entire fic was in this chapter. “Both he and Kuro were absolute beasts of rage, and they would tear Lysandre’s entire legacy apart.” perfection. i love it. so yeah, anyways, i hope you enjoyed, sorry for the angst at the start but hey that’s kinda how the fic works 😛 see you all next time! 😀

Hello! I am baaaaccckkkkkkkkk!

I talk to Piers and now Oleana comes and yells at us, making everyone suspicious. For some reason the dude who has the key has a meowth instead of a Purrserker. Oh well. For some reason, for my heart dropped as soon as I sent out Soren, because I felt a wave of fear he would die sometime in the championship cub, but nothing bad happened. We climb the tower, with Hippowdon earthquaking everything until they die. I go to the top and Oleana is waiting for me. Time for a battle.

Oleana battle
I use Cinderace against Froslass, who I pyro ball instantly. I switch to Soren for Milotic, who I leaf blade and it dies too. Hippowdon goes out against Sallazle, who poisons him, but I one shot it with earthquake. Tsareena falls to a pyro ball, and I bring Hippowdon for garboder. She g-maxes her Garboder and I dynamax my Hippowdon. Hippowdon tanks a max quake, before I return with my max quake, which garboder certainly does not tank.

Rose acts all menacing and Leon feeds the hunger children. We sleep and I get taken to the stadium and I go to fight the battles. I won’t fight all of them now buuuuutttttttttt I’ll do one! Bede comes and ChALlaNgeS me oh noooooo!
Bede interruption
I lead with Hippowdon, who one shots Mawile with earthquake, and I send in Soren against Gardevoir, who Soren kills with spirit shackle, and Rapidash meets the same fate. I dynamax Soren, and Bede G-Maxes his Hatterene. I demolish Hatterene with Max Phantazem.

Bede decides to become the new fairy gym leader, and runs away.

Well, that’s it! Next time I’ll do more of the battles. No deaths today! Yay! I would have done more, but something came up!

Hello-it’s me, Bloompaw, back for more Wonderlocke!

I know my next opponent is Nessa, which is terrifying. Her first Pokémon is Golisopod, which I don’t have any answer for. If I send out Faolan, my only pokemon who can do STAB supper effective damage, Golisopod might live and hit him with razor shell and I am not risking Faolan. But no more delays, time for the Nessa battle.

Nessa battle
I lead with the only thing I feel safe with starting with, Alcreme. Golisopod switches out with emergency exit, something I completely forgot about, once I hit it with dazzling gleam, and her Seaking comes out. The Seaking uses an aqua ring after I get it into red and Nessa uses a full restore, so I dazzling gleam it twice more for the kill. I send in Soren against Barasqewta and it outspeeds and hits me with a throat chop. Absolutely terrifying. Soren shrugs it off and doesn’t even get into yellow health, so I switch Alcreme back in for Peliper, who goes down to a dazzling gleam after its drizzle sets up rain. Draining kiss finishes off Golisopod, and Dreadnaw comes out. I’m kinda scared of swift swim which might be on dreadnaw, but I send in and dynamax Soren, while she g-maxes Dreadnaw. Soren takes it out with max overgrowth. Was I scared of that fight? Guess I forgot how much I could use Alcreme.

After beating Nessa, it’s time for Bea. BEA. Time to send her to the distortion world.
Bea battle
Bea comes out. She threatens to “shake my very soul” which i see as a threat to my precious ghost types. There will be no more blood on your hands Bea. I’ll make sure of that. She leads with Hawlucha, who goes down quickly to pyro ball. I send in Soren, who kills her Falinks with brave bird. Well well well, look who we have here. It’s Sirfetch’d. Alcreme wants revenge against the Pokémon who murdered Cursola, and a dazzling gleam swiftly takes it out. HAH GO TO THE DISTORTION WORLD YOU MURDERING PIECE OF CHICKEN SOUP-ok I’ll stop. Grappolot goes down to Soren’s brave bird. Alcreme comes out against Machamp, and she dynamaxes why Machamp g-maxes. Machamp just goes down to a max starfall.

With vengeance over with, I go to Raihan, another murderer. Sadly, I won’t be able to get true vengeance because he’s not bringing his Gigalith. Oh well I guess I’ll just have to kill all his other Pokémon!
Raihan battle
Raihan leads with Torcoal, who’s drought cancels my Hippowdon’s sand stream. I outspeed and one shot Torcoal with earthquake. I bring out Alcreme to dazzling gleam Goodra, who lives and sets up a rain dance. I try for draining kiss, but Raihan uses a full restore, so Goodra lives. Not for long though, as another dazzling gleam takes it out. Faolan comes out against Turtonator, who I one shot with rock slide. I bring Alcreme back out for Flygon, and Flygon sets up sandstorm. I beat Flygon with dazzling gleam right after. I bring out Hippowdon against Duraladon, and I dynamax her right after Raihan g-maxes Duraladon. Hippowdon takes a max steelspike, but doesn’t one hit kill with Max Quake. Duraladon max steelspikes again, but this time another max quake takes it out. Bye bye Raihan! I hope you get lost in a snowstorm on your way back to the gym!

I realize Hop likes me more then he likes his own brother, and i prepare to fight Leon.

Well, that’s it! I might even be able to beat Leon next time, but who knows!

second to last (and longest) chapter. i’m not ready for this to be over 😭

Chapter 8
Alain POV, 9:21 PM
Everything felt wrong. It was barely a pound – just a few ounces, probably. Nothing more. But Alain was keenly and thoroughly aware of the empty spot on his waist, of Lance’s Ultra Ball left discarded in the helicopter. Because he couldn’t even bring himself to look at it anymore, and it did nothing but make him feel impossibly worse and worse. Then he’d crack, and then he’d cry, just like he had back on the helicopter. And he couldn’t be that weak anymore. Not when the whole world was going to end if he didn’t just suck it up and move on. Not when Chespie would be completely, utterly gone, and so would they all. It wasn’t about him anymore – it never would be. He had to stop pretending like it mattered. He’d lost Lance – fine, so what? He just had to move on. He had no time for pity, or for grief. Alain just had to keep fighting, keep pushing. This was his one and only chance to be a better person, and to make up for what he’d done. He couldn’t just throw it away.

 “Alain…” But he couldn’t even look at her. He knew, even with his eyes fixed down on the ground, that Mairin was probably crying, or on the verge of tears, and he knew that she was relying on him to make this all right. He had to. He swallowed, and looked up. 

“It’s okay,” he lied. Stupid. It’s not fine. You screwed up, and you’re saying it’s ‘fine’ because you’re trying to pretend that this wasn’t all your fault in the first place, because if you hadn’t yelled at her, then Chespie would never have gone into a coma, and he never would have had that accident with the Zygarde, and the world wouldn’t be about to literally end- Alain looked down, digging his fingernails into his palm. Liar. He lied to her, he lied to himself, he lied to everyone. Who even was he, at this point? You either die a hero, or live long enough to watch yourself become the villain. He stared up at the Megalith, and ran his hand over Lance’s empty spot on his belt. Number three. At least he knew where he fell. But he forced himself to breathe, to look brave. “I swear I’ll come back, and Chespie with me,” he promised. Mairin nodded, and Alain turned away to go. 

“Thank you,” she said quietly. Alain just nodded. Walked away. Placed one hand on Kuro’s Pokeball, telling himself that if nothing else, at least he still had him. Maybe with X, and the entire League, they could take down the Megalith, and they could save them all. Save Chespie, finally. He wasn’t good at being optimistic, but he was trying his best. If nothing else, he owed them all-

He felt a tug on his sleeve, and he turned around. Mairin stared up at him for a moment, tears in her eyes, and he looked down. He hated when she cried, he hated when he couldn’t do anything about it, and he hated when it was his fault-

Then she just threw her arms around him, shaking, and he froze. He remembered, post-Rayquaza, Kyogre, and Groudon. When she’d saved his life, most likely, after he’d blacked out on the ice. Back when he thought maybe they could be friends, and it would all work out in the end. Back before he’d screwed everything up, and back before he’d ruined it all. He hesitated, and then he hugged her back, trying to ignore the way she was shaking. He just breathed, in and out, trying to just stand, and to be strong, because that’s all he’d ever been to her-

“Alain. What…” She looked at him. He didn’t look at her. He just blinked, again and again. He didn’t want to cry, again– “What happened?” She asked quietly. He froze. “What happened to…” He didn’t even want to hear it out of her mouth, dangit- “…Lance?” And it hurt. It hurt so, so much. To know that she hadn’t even understood, to know that he’d have to say it to her right then, right now, because he couldn’t just-

He forced himself to breathe, in and out. He looked up at the sky, at nothing. Blinked to fight back tears. Loosened his arms around her shoulders, and then forced himself to look at her. Took one last deep breath. Then he said it, because he didn’t want to lie to her anymore than he already did.

“Lance is dead,” he said. And it felt so, so heavy. It just broke him into a million pieces, watching as Mairin’s face shattered completely. “Lance is-” He choked. Dangit. “Lysandre killed him. On the top of Prism Tower.” Then he was crying again, pulling Mairin in again. He didn’t want to cry, but he couldn’t even stop it. It just hurt, and it felt wrong, and he didn’t want to think about the fact that he was gone

“I have to go.” And he couldn’t even do it anymore. He pushed her away, trying to ignore the tears on the side of his face. Two Pokeballs came off of his waist, and he pressed them into Mairin’s hands, not even looking her in the eye. “Hero and Gojira will protect you. Don’t-” His voice cracked. “Don’t lose them. Please. I can’t lose anybody else today.” Then he turned away, and he hoped she knew that she didn’t just mean his Pokemon. I can’t lose you, either, he wanted to say. The words never came. He just turned, then he was walking away, head down, because he didn’t want to look at her anymore. 

“Alain, I-” He stopped, for just a moment. “Okay,” she said quietly. And she was so, so afraid. But it wasn’t like Alain would be any use to her, anyways, like this. 

“I’m sorry,” he whispered, to Mairin but really nobody but himself. He just had to keep going. Get Chespie out of there. Then apologize, for everything he’d done and said, and then maybe he’d have a chance to make it all right again. But until then…

It all became a blur as he went completely numb, listening while X and Diantha laid out a plan. They would use the Pokemon’s moves to get into the Megalith, Steven had suggested. Alain and X were just to keep running – get Chespie out of there, and then get back. The rock would stop. It would all be okay. It all sounded so, so easy. It wouldn’t be. It never was. Lysandre never made things easy. 

“All right, everybody. Remember – rescuing Chespie is the first priority. Now head towards the Water Shuriken!” And five minutes later, everybody obeyed X without any form of question. Alain nodded, swallowing down any form of grief or regret. He just ran, faster and faster. Repeating over and over to himself that if he rescued Chespie, he could make Mairin happy. And maybe, even doing just that, would make things a little-

“Grenousso, Aerial Ace!” Okay, right. There was no time to think anymore. X’s Greninja leapt into the air, slashing through a set of vines. X jumped, without hesitation, onto the swirling mass of vines. Alain swallowed, and then followed, tossing Kuro, Akuto, and Kestrel’s Pokeballs into the air. Focus, he repeated to himself. Focus, and just fight. Get Chespie out of there. Nothing more. The Unfezeant appeared overhead first, smashing through a set of vines with Steel Wing immediately, even without a command. Akuto followed up with a Night Slash, while Kuro shot into the air, striking out with a Dragon Claw. Alain pressed one hand to his Keystone, and kept running. 

“Keystone, respond to my heart! Mega Evolve!” There was a blinding flash and a roar, and Alain took that as a sign the transformation was complete. “Use Flamethrower!” He yelled. He was right, as the blue flames shot right in front of him, burning through the vines to create a path. He kept running, dozens of footsteps behind him. 

“Fork off!” X yelled. The plan moved into motion, immediately. The Gym Leaders divided into pairs and units, swerving off to the left and right. Behind them, Alain heard Steven and Diantha ordered Psychics, swirling vines together into a neat path, towering up to where the Water Shuriken was lodged. Alain just kept running. Above him, Kuro launched Flamethrowers whenever a vine got close, while Kestrel swerved and dove through the air, striking out with Steel Wings. Akuto kept pace with Grenousso, both lashing out with repeated Night Slashes. X had his Meowstic, which covered them with Light Screen and Reflect, and his Mega Manectric tore through vines with vicious Ice Fangs before launching off a Thunder. Alain ducked, just in time, as a Flamethrower shot through the air, coming from Malva’s Houndoom. The vines disappeared, ripped and scorched to smithereens. Then there were more, as usual. Alain couldn’t even be surprised anymore.

“Now!” X screamed. Alain stepped right. Kuro shot into the air, spinning, before firing another Flamethrower.

“Moonblast!” Then, right on time, a pink orb shot through the air, clearing one set of vines. It was followed by a Psyshock from Olympia’s female Meowstic, both coming from the right. Alain looked up once, and then nodded in thanks. Then he was back on the path, trying not to flinch when he heard Valerie scream, a vine shooting through the air and sweeping her off her feet. X called after her. Alain just shut his eyes, and kept moving. He couldn’t get distracted. Not now. He looked up, at the Megalith in the distance, and pushed on.

“Kuro-” His Charizard didn’t need to be told twice. He shot in front of the group, sending off another Flamethrower. The blue fire blazed through the oncoming vines, while Grenousso backed him up with Aerial Aces and Night Slashes, spinning and slashing through three, five vines at a time. Another one came, but Alain barely flinched, watching as Korrina’s Lucario leapt down in front of them, blocking it with a Bone Rush. Then Ramos and his Gogoat were on their right, drawing two vines together with a Grass Knot to make a path. Alain tried not to look down, and not to look at the dozens of feet they were in the air. The height made his stomach churn, knowing how much a fall would cost him. But he didn’t have time to be scared of anything. Instead, he just kept running, X at his side. 

More vines shot forwards, swirling around Grenousso, and Alain swore to himself. He saw them tighten, and he saw X’s breath stop short, barely gasping. He opened his mouth to order a command from Kuro, but the words never came. Instead, Viola and her Vivillon swooped through the air, firing off a Solar Beam. Meanwhile, Grant’s Tyrantrum launched a Rock Tomb, creating a wall that scaled at least fifteen feet. It would get them to the top – to exactly where they needed to be, and where the path was at least somewhat clear to the Megalith’s core. It stopped the vines, too, and Alain thanked Grant under his breath and kept going. He barely flinched when he heard both Grant and Viola go flying through the air, caught by a vine before hitting the ground. X called after them, just like he had for the rest of their team. He was a good Champion, Alain knew. Then he turned back to the wall at hand, at the top, and kept moving.

He placed one hand on the rocks, and then the other. He climbed, trying to ignore the way his right hand burned and ached. Had he fractured it at some point earlier? He felt like he had. There was a Parabolic Charge from Clemont’s Heliolisk, bashing through the vines chasing them from behind, while Alain just kept going. He slipped, once, just a few feet from the top, but X grabbed his hand, catching him right before he fell. He thanked him, and then whistled to Kuro. The Charizard carried him the rest of the way, and then they were at the top. He paused for a single moment to catch his breath and rest his aching legs, and then he kept running. 

“Ice Shard!”

“Ice Beam!”

 The first came from Wulfric’s Abomasnow, freezing over the vines coming up behind them completely. The second was Akuto, leaping into the air and firing off a cracking blue beam, doing the same for the vines in front of them. They went completely still, and Alain swerved around one. He jumped down the steep slope ahead of them, at least five feet. The Water Shuriken was lodged in the Megalith’s core, not too far away. They were close. They were getting there. They might not have had any of the Gym Leaders as backup anymore, but-

“Dark Pulse!” They had Malva, firstly. Her Houndoom leapt into the air, destroying three vines with a single purple beam. Alain knew she hadn’t been going all out when they’d fought, one on one. That was the kind of power he wanted to have one day.

“Dragon Claw!” And Sahara, Mega Evolved. It had taken a while to really set in. Sahara – Sahara, who he’d rescued as a Gible literal years ago, could Mega Evolve. Alain also hadn’t spoken to Professor Sycamore in years, either – that’s why he didn’t look at him when they passed one another, and that’s why he did nothing more than nod in thanks. There wasn’t time for explanations, or reunions. Sahara sliced through the vines, and then there were more on them. 

“Elec, use Ice Fang! Mystic, use Psyshock!” X yelled. They shredded through the vines, Grenousso and Kuro backing them silently, striking out with green Dragon Claws and a defensive Water Shuriken. A vine wrapped swerved around Mystic, while Kestrel sliced through it with an Air Slash, before Akuto fired off another Ice Beam. Another vine shot through the air, and Alain and X leapt to the side, dodging it. It swirled around behind them, and Alain stumbled. He whipped around, and swore under his breath. He didn’t-

“Dual Hurricanes!” Y screamed. Then the Sky Trainer was there, swooping down alongside her Noivern and Vivillon, which both launched swirling Hurricanes through the air. They shredded through the vines, and a couple extra for good measure. X whipped around. 

“Y-” He started.

“X, run!” She snapped. “Solace, let’s go!” Then she threw an Ultra Ball into the air, an Absol landing on the vine in front of them. Y landed on the ground, and held one wrist out in front of her. Her other hand went to the Keystone on her Mega Ring, and Solace roared. “Keystone, bring our souls together as one! Solace, use Shadow Claw!” The light exploded, once, and then it was gone. The Mega Absol shot into the air, wings spread, and it sliced through two vines in quick succession, spinning through the air. Alain stared for a moment, and then kept running. 

“Thanks, Y,” He called. To be fair, he owed her more than just one thanks, after what she’d done for Mairin. He’d talk to her once this was all over. 

“Don’t thank me yet,” she said grimly. Alain chose to ignore her, this time, and he kept running. Right. X was on his left again, as Elec leapt through the air, shredding through a vine with a Wild Charge. Kuro swerved beneath him, and the Mega Manectric landed on his back. Alain ran faster to keep up, trying to ignore the burning in his legs and the way his breath came in short gasps. There was no time for breaks. 

More vines came, but Kuro blew them out with a huge, blazing Flamethrower. Alain kept running, while Akuto and Mystic covered them with Light Screen and Protect, blocking five vines at once. It gave them just enough time for Kestrel to charge up and burn through all of them with a Sky Attack, and then they were off again. On either side of them, sprinting across vines of their own, were Steven and Diantha, each of their partners launching out with Flash Cannons and Moonblasts. Alain focused on the Water Shuriken ahead of him, and kept running. Then there was a roar as Sahara shot into the air, vines wrapping around her entire body. More shot out of the ground as Alain whipped around, and he swore to himself. 

“Professor!” He screamed, stopping for the first time in a long while. “Kuro, use-” 

“Keep going!” Sycamore yelled, as Malva’s Houndoom fired off another Dark Pulse above them. Another vine shot into the air, tangling itself around its legs, and it howled. 

“Just go!” Malva screamed, from where both her and the Professor were trapped behind the vines. Sahara shot out with a Dragon Pulse. It missed. Alain stared for a moment, cursing again, and then turned. 

“I’m sorry,” he whispered to himself. “I’m sorry I couldn’t protect you.” Then he just kept going, forcing himself to just run and run and run, leaving them behind. Kuro fired off another Flamethrower, and Elec bit through another vine with a violent Ice Fang, freezing it over before snapping it in half. A vine shot through the air, which Grenousso quickly smashed through with Aerial Ace, backed up by Akuto’s Night Slash. Then more were coming, wrapping around Akuto, lifting the Weavile high into the air. Alain’s blood ran cold. It was high, too high, and if she-

“Kuro, break her out of there!” He screamed. The Charizard shot forwards, smashing through the vine with Dragon Claw. It split down the middle, and Akuto fell. Alain yanked out her Pokeball. “Return!” Then she was gone in a flash, right before she would have fallen to the ground. He swore to himself, tucking it the Pokeball back onto his belt before running again. Too many options for casualties if he kept her out. Maybe Kestrel too, but he could at least-

He jinxed it, he knew. Immediately, a vine entangled itself across the Unfezant’s body, wrapping around his wings. There was a snap, and Alain swore, again. 

“Kuro, use-” His Charizard sliced the vine in half with a Dragon Claw immediately, reading Alain’s mind exactly. Kestrel began to fall, and Alain flinched at the awkward angle his left wing was bent at. He returned him immediately with a thank you, and then turned to X. “Dangit, X. Should you-”

“Keep going, Alain,” he snapped, meeting his gaze. Alain stared for a moment, but then nodded. Right. No stopping, no holding back. He kept running, with Kuro blazing a path in front of them with another Flamethrower. Grenousso and Elec provided extra coverage with Night Slash and Crunch, while Mystic blocked another vine with Reflect. Behind him, he heard Steven order a Flash Cannon, and ducked slightly to avoid the attack. Diantha’s Gardevoir followed up with a Moonblast, and both trainers were running on either side again, their Mega Evolved Pokemon both glowing blue with psychic power. 

“Don’t worry about the vines!” Steven yelled. Alain nodded. Another Flash Cannon, another Moonblast. Just a little farther, and then-

“Just keep going!” Diantha added. He did. He trusted, as another ten shot up out of the ground, as if there was absolutely no end to this at all- 

“Use Psychic!” All three Champions yelled, in the exact same moment. On the sides, Titan and Artemis both shone blue, followed by Mystic in the center. They drew two vines together, swirling them into a thick bridge. Alain risked a quick glance at X. He knew his friend didn’t quite understand that he was Kalos’ Champion quite yet – he’d seen it, back when the Gym Leaders had first shown up. But if anybody was Champion material, it was him. He watched as Mystic followed up with a Psyshock, combined with Moonblasts and Flash Cannons from Artemis and Titan. He kept pace with the Mega Evolved Pokemon easily, before blocking another vine with Reflect. The Meowstic kept darting in and out, and then Alain tore his gaze forwards, leaving all three Psychic types behind. They were so, so, close-

“Kuro, use Flamethrower!” 

“Grenousso, use Water Shuriken! Elec, use Wild Charge!” 

Ten, fifteen more vines shot out of the ground. Kuro roared, shooting into the air. Fire flared through Alain’s veins while X and Grenousso both moved together, the Greninja yanking the Water Shuriken off of his back. Elec leapt into the air, the Mega Manectric cracking with electricity, and he howled. Behind the swirling vines, Alain could see it. The Water Shuriken from earlier flashed blue against the scarlet of the Megalith’s core, and the vines parted, for just a split second. He looked at X, and their eyes met once. He nodded. Then he looked back to the Megalith, and-

Now.

And then all three attacks shot through the air, and it all shattered. Before Alain could think, he just jumped, X at his side. He was falling – flying through the smoke of the explosion, Kuro behind him. He couldn’t see a thing, but he just kept going. Reached out, knowing that Chespie was so, so close-

Then he landed on rock solid crystal, X at his side, and dropped to the ground. 

“Alain!” X called. He caught him before he fell, just like Alain did for him back on the top of Prism Tower. How long had it been? An hour, maybe? Arceus, it felt like longer. Alain forced himself to breathe steadily, hands and knees on the ground. His heart was racing, he knew, and he tried to focus. Arceus, he wasn’t supposed to be tired already, not when Chespie was just-

“Chespie!” He looked up. Then he wasn’t even thinking anymore, pushing X away and forcing all of his pain down his throat as he sprinted forwards. The ground was a glimmering scarlet, as were the crystals hanging from the ceiling and crisscrossing in every way and direction. Then one shot forwards. Alain leapt to the left. Another one came. He flipped backwards, cursing to himself. He prepared to sprint forwards again, until he felt X’s hand on his wrist. He didn’t shake it off, this time. 

“Alain, are you okay?” He looked down. Was he okay? He’d lost Lance, failed Mairin, and would probably get them all killed if he failed here. Also, he was pretty sure he’d fractured something in his hand, and he could barely breathe. But he was fine, right?

“I’m good,” he decided. “Just cover me.” He looked at X, who stared at him for a moment. Then he nodded. 

“Okay.” And that was all Alain needed. He shot forwards again, while behind him, a Water Shuriken came flying. It whizzed right above his head, and smashed through a crystal that came crashing down from the ceiling. He sidestepped and vaulted himself over another one, as Kuro fired off a Flamethrower to block a third. They kept coming, and Alain just tried to ignore that if one of those hit him, he was done for. 

But he had to listen to X. He had to just trust him, and keep moving. So he did. He just kept running, while attacks flew around him from both sides, exploding the crystals in front of him. He was running blindly through the smoke again, until it cleared with another Flamethrower from Kuro. On his left, Elec shot into the air, smashing through another crystal with Wild Charge. Grenousso was next, spinning around and lashing out with endless Aerial Aces. Alain looked up. Chespie lay still, suspended between four crystals in an X shape. He shone red, eyes shut. Alain carefully judged the distance he still had to go. Not that much longer, he hoped. Just a few more steps, and then he’d have to jump-

“Don’t stop, Alain! Grenousso, use Water Shuriken!” X screamed from behind him. More crystals. Alain ducked, and a Water Shuriken whizzed above his head. It smashed through them. Alain took another step forwards, and then another, pushing all of his pain down his throat. He was close. He was so, so close-

He took one last step. His left foot touched down a final time on the crystal floor beneath him, and he jumped. At least eight crystals shot out behind him, and he heard X scream his name. But he just reached, higher and higher. He leaped, one arm outstretched, hoping that, even if for just this once, he could be enough-

Chespie. It’s Alain. I’m going to get you out of here. And then let’s go back to Mairin – together. 

Then he had one hand around the Chespin’s small, limp form, and he was falling. Kuro caught him, holding him with one arm. Alain just tightened his grip on Chespie, holding him tighter and tighter. From outside, he heard somebody scream, and then it all fell silent. Kuro swooped down, Elec leaping onto his back as he picked up X with the other arm. Grenousso jumped after them. Then there were out – flying, as Alain gripped Kuro with one hand and Chespie with the other. And even if he couldn’t quite bring himself to smile, maybe just-

“Chespie!” Mairin cried, sprinting forwards. Alain watched the way she ran, the way she grinned, the way she held out her arms. Yeah. Well, that was enough. 

“Hey, Mairin.” And maybe for the first time, he didn’t care how weak his voice was, how he shook, or how he seemed to crack. Instead, he just smiled, and then passed Chespie into her arms, Kuro and Grenousso landing on the ground behind him. Seeing the ways her eyes sparkled, and the way she grinned, was plenty for him. He’d done something right. He’d done all he could, he’d fought, he’d tried, and he’d succeeded

“Alain, thank you.” And he just smiled at her, even as the happy tears welled in her eyes, and even when she pulled Chespie in tighter and tighter. All he’d wanted was to see her happy, and to see her smile. Lysandre had used him, he knew that, and now he was gone. Alain felt light, and he felt the closest thing to happiness he had in such a long, long time. 

“Now, all that’s left is what’s in front of us,” Steven said. So when their entire team turned, forming a line, Alain stared at the Megalith, its crystal core dull and shattered, Kuro at his side, and was fully ready. One final attack, and they’d tear it to pieces. Lysandre’s dream would fall, and it would burn. X counted down. They all waited, and then they all attacked. 

“Kuro, use Flamethrower!” And all the moves swirled together, into a blazing white beam, and pierced the Megalith right through the core. There was a huge explosion, along with a shatter. The Zygarde shaped rock crumpled – dropped, falling backwards. Alain stared, waiting. 

“Did it work?” Somebody asked. Nothing. Nobody answered, nobody budged, nobody-

Then, somehow, it moved. It shot upright again, crystal blazing scarlet once more. Alain froze, and he heard X gasp. It cried out, the sound the exact same as Zygarde’s. He kept growing colder. Something was wrong. That shouldn’t be possible. That shouldn’t-

Two, three steps. The click of footsteps, a brief flash of fiery red on the top of the Megalith’s figure. Alain stared, blood running cold. 

“You will never extinguish my dream.” The words ran through his head, time and time again. Another step. A figure stood on the top of the Megalith’s head, a brown device glistening on his arm, wires and drones strewn out of his jetpack. His orange visor pulled back, sliding into place. 

“That’s not possible,” X gasped. Alain barely heard him. He just stared. “How could he have-” He put one hand out to the side. X stopped, and Alain stepped forwards. 

“Lysandre,” he spat. He turned his voice to absolute poison, as Kuro came up besides him. The dragon snarled, fire flaring from his nostrils. On the top of the Megalith, Lysandre looked down. His eyes narrowed. 

“Even if you’re somehow able to stop me, I will still recreate this world,” he said coldly. Alain didn’t let himself flinch. He just glared at him. You’re a traitor. A murderer. I will kill you Lysandre, even if it’s the last thing I do, he swore. “Count on it,” Lysandre spat. Alain met his eyes evenly, and silently, Kuro stepped out in front of him. 

“I’d like to see you try.” And on top of everything else, Lysandre was nothing but a fool. Because Alain knew one thing – he looked at Kuro, lifted his chin, and he thought of a single, small green cell, sleeping in the sun. You never, ever, messed with the wrath of a dragon.

there’s a whole heck ton of running in that chapter, but i really like how it came out! 😀 y was absolutely perfect, just swooping in and casually HURRICANING and then mega evolving. i had to give her her mega ring back, just so that she could 😛 alain’s… not doing so well, but he’s trying his best, and he’s pushing through. x is proving his worth, and doing everything he can. i love these POV kids so, so much. i loved writing them. i loved all of it. and i’m so, so sad that it’s practically over. but i think i improved a lot over the course of this fic. the action i wrote into this chapter was not something i could have done two months ago. i really hope you guys have enjoyed <3

also, i was thinking – let’s do a Q&A! from now until and after chapter 9 goes up, feel free to ask me any questions. you could also address them to the characters, too – have you seen those? like ask [insert name here]? yeah, like that 😛 so questions for me, questions for the characters, anything! and then after the final chapter goes up, i’ll answer all of them in one big post! anything works, unless i’ve already answered it, so like… DO NOT SPAM ME WITH “WHY DID YOU KILL LANCE” THANK YOU OKAY BYE 😛

anyways. yeah. i’ll see you in two days for the finale? and please gimme questions bc i love them! 😛

Questions it is!

Y-how did you become so awesome?
Moon-what happened with groundon kyogre and rayquaza?
Alain-why don’t you talk to the professor
Alain-if you kill Lysandre, doesn’t that make you as bad as he is, with the murdering and stuff? You know-never mind, kill him anyway.
Mairin-what’s your opinion on Alain?
Alain-how did it feel when you saw Kestrel get caught by the vine?

This enough questions for you or do I need to come back with more?

You ask and I shall provide!
Kuro-how did it feel when Lance died?
Mairin-how did it feel learning about Lance’s death?
Moon-who is the “replacement” for Lance on Alain’s team? What pokemon is it? Or can I not know that for spoiler reasons?
Y X and Alain-what are your favorite colors. Random question I know, but who doesn’t love random questions?
Alain-WHY WONT YOU LET YOURSELF SHOW EMOTION? I don’t think it’s healthy to be that closed off.
X-how does it feel being the only person in the world able to use the Bond Phenomenon?

Do you still want more? I can try to come up with more if you want some more!

Y- how did you decide to be a Sky Trainer?
Moon- why doesnt Y have a Mega Pidgeot instead of Absol? It’d make a lot more sense, being a Sky Trainer and all.
Alain- Will you ever forgive yourself? (of course not, but still)
Uhm, Rayquaza, Groudon, Kyogre? WHERE HAS THIS CHILD BEEN?

im back and ready for more! Let’s get straight into it! Wonderlocke time!

I enter the stadium, and Leon’s waiting for me. Leon calls the audience cruel, and says he’ll crush me. Time for a battl-

Story stuff
The audience demands we hold on, but the monitor changes so Leon is saved. Rose just lets us know he’s kinda started the darkest day and the stadium explodes. Leon goes to fix it, and we go to the slumbering Weald. Sonia is waiting for us, and Mum fills Sonia in on all the latest happenings. Sonia gives me revives to rub some salt, and I stumble around in the fog until I reach Hop. Zacian and Zamazenta come out and bark at us for a bit, and they ditch us. We find the tiny dagger and the slab of rock, and I take the tiny dagger. I try to fly away to Hammerlocke stadium, but I remember that you can’t use the flying taxi in Slumbering Weald! Why! I escape the slumbering Weald with my escape rope, then fly to Hammerlocke. I run into Raihan and Hop runs away to help Leon. Oleana comes crawling to me once her boss is going to die, and I go help him. Rose battles me instead. Time to fight

Rose Battle
I one shot Escavalier with Cinderace’s pyro ball, and Clingclang hits me with gear grind before I can kill it with Hippowdon’s earthquake. Ferrothorn goes down to pyro ball, and Perrserker with earthquake. I bring Cinderace out and dynamax him, as Rose g-maxes Copperajah. Copperajah gets one shot with Max flare. Nice battle, quick and easy.

Story stuff 2
Rose tells me Leon and Eternatus are upstairs and I go out to see it, and then when I’m stumbling around looking for the way to get to the stadium roof, I find something. A strawberry sweet. I COULD HAVE HAD A ALCREME FROM THE MOMENT I ENTERED HAMMERLOCKE!!!!! Sorry, had to vent a bit. I realize that you just have to go to the left from the power plant. I go watch as Leon throws a poke ball at a legendary and then is surprised as it doesn’t work. Hippowdon gets hit with a powerful dragon pulse, but I one show Eternatus with earthquake. Eternatus then decides to become BIG Eternatus. My attacks don’t do damage, but Eternatus gets hit with sandstorm. It’s only a matter of time until it dies now….but that’ll take to long, so I just decide that I can stab Eternatus to death with tiny dagger. Slumbering Weald explodes and Zacian says this is an E for Everyone game and I can’t kill someone, so it takes my dagger. Zacian, where were you in the Bea Marnie and Raihan battles? I battle alongside the legendary doggos, and our attacks do nothing. Zacian realizes this and stabs Eternatus with tiny dagger, which does some nice damage, and Eternatus gets Hippowdon’s health dangerously low. Zacian and Zamazenta just…decide not to attack while I switch Hippowdon out so Hop needs to finish the job. I pull a Leon and throw a poke ball at Eternatus, but my poke ball is better then his and I catch it. Zacian and Zamazenta run off into the sunset, and all becomes well.

With all that story stuff out of the way, it’s time for Leon. This is it, the championship battle. Let’s go.
The ultimate battle
I compose myself. Walk down the hall. And go into the stadium. Leon says how the crowd is just so wild, and we fight. He starts with Ageslash, Ageslash blocks a pyro ball with kings shield, but the next turn I take it out. One down. Haxorus comes out, and I switch to Alcreme. Alcreme dodges an iron tail from Haxorus, and takes it out with dazzling gleam. Soren comes out against Phyperior, and leaf blade doesn’t one shot. Phyperior uses HEAT CRASH and I fear for the worst…but then Soren takes the hit! Leon full restores while I go for another leaf blade, which takes it out in one hit this time. I bring Alcreme back out to handle Dragapult, and after getting hit with a shadow ball, Alcreme takes it out with dazzling gleam. Rilaboom enters the field and Cinderace comes out. One pyro ball takes it out. Leon’s final pokemon, his Charizard comes out. Here it is. My final challenge. Leon g-maxes charizard, and I dynamax Faolan. Charizard uses Max Overgrowth, but nothing can stop Faolan. With one final Max Rockfall, it’s over. I’ve won.

After beating the champion, I become the new champion of the region. The credits roll, and I know I’ve won. There’s a final, “the end.” And I’ve done it. I can finally rest. Is what I would say, but there’s post game to do! Bye everyone, and I’ll be back once again with more Wonderlocke next time!

K I’m going to try another Pokémon challenge because I’m bored. hopefully i won’t mess this one up like the rillaboom only one where I overleveld to much and made it boring. this time, I am going to try and play through shield with a team chosen by you. you can make it as bad as you want, and if you give me a unevolved Pokémon, I cannot evolve them. you can give me at most two Pokémon, and the only limitation is that I must be able to obtain them in shield, or the isle of armor. I will choose movesets and held items, but you can choose abilities. the first six Pokémon will be the ones I use.

Use a Flareon!!!!! Flareon is my instrument of torture. Guts toxic orb would be cool, but the materials for that would be impossible to get in a normal play through. Also a Milcery. U can’t evolve it. I had to use a Milcery for so long, so I’ll inflict that pain onto you too 😛

I was looking at Milcerys learnset, and you are right. Milcery. Gets. Nothing. If I can find stored power, I could go for Acid Armor Stored Power, but I dont know if I can find the tr. Flareon has NO physical moves, but a special attack of 95, so he might be the carrier anyway. We’ll see how it goes there. I mean, with moon asking me to use a snom and not evolve it, well… Things will get interesting.

ALRIGHT! TIME TO MURDER YOU WITH MY AWFUL WRITING!

you guys may or may not remember the time i asked for some random teams. Weeeeeeeell, I didn’t forget, and this is the first team i have completed! All the battles are exactly as it happened in my game, so i didn’t have much freedom with what i was able to do, but this was really fun to write nonetheless.

ANYWAYS: Cinderpaw is the lucky cat person 😛 that got their team done first!

______________
“If you step into the Pokemon League, you won’t be able to leave again until you either beat the Elite Four, or are defeated in the process.” The Ace Trainers voice snapped Ruby up from her thoughts. She knew she was ready, but still… “Will you attempt it, even knowing that?”
 
She looked up at the two trainers, her heart beating wildly. Ruby was sure they could hear it. “Yes.” she answered finally.
 
“You may pass! Prove your strength to all!” the Ace Trainers said in unison.
 
A doorway opened up, revealing a long, dimly lit hallway. Ruby stood and gaped for a moment before she walked in. The doors shut with an ominous clang behind her. The Pokeballs on her trainers belt shook with excitement, and she laid a hand on them to calm the pokemon down.
 
Before she knew it, Ruby had walked into a large rock chamber. Glowing blue stones adorned the walls and ceiling, and the bottom of the chamber gave way to darkness. She stepped onto a dull gray platform, which she realized was on the center of everything. It had pathways like it leading off to four different doors. She settled on the door furthest to her right, and slowly started towards it. They swung open as she drew near, and another long hallway awaited her. Only this time it was well lit and definitely shorter.
 
The passage led Ruby into another chamber of rock. Instead of blue, lime green rocks were poking out of the ceiling and walls. A large floating island stood in the center of the room. And, she noticed with alarm, the floor was transparent, showing her bottom of the chamber. Is also dropped away into nothingness.
 
She climbed the steps to the edge of the battle field. Hawlucha, she thought, grabbing one of the Quick Balls of her trainers belt. You’ll do great. Ruby knew the pokemon couldn’t hear her thoughts,, but she said it any ways, more for herself, actually.
 
“Hello new trainer.” A feminine voice resounded around the chamber. She looked up, and saw a woman with pale blue hair holding a golf club. Kahili, she remembered. “Lets see who the wind favors today… you, or me?” And with that, Ruby knew the battle had begun.
 

 
Already? She thought, grabbing Hawlucha’s Quick Ball off her belt. That was qui-
 
Suddenly, holographic wings appeared above the podium Kahili stood on. They drew back, then flew forward, and more wings like it appeared around the battlefield. Feathers fell from out of nowhere, and then disappeared as they fell towards the ground.
 
“Wha…” Ruby trailed off. She had never seen anything like it. “Never mind that.”
 
“Braviary!” Kahili called, tossing a pokeball in the air. A beam of blue light arced up, and the Braviary Kahili had called out swooped around the stadium. It finished by landing in front of its trainer.
 
“Alright, Hawlucha!” Ruby threw her pokemons Quick Ball in the air. The Fighting Flying type pokemon landed in front of her, taking up a battle stance. “Start with Hone Claws!” she called out. A red aura surrounded Hawlucha for a moment before disappearing, showing its raise in attack.
 
“Brave Bird!” Kahili shouted. The Braviary pushed itself off the ground and flew up.
 
“Get ready to dodge it Chu!” Hawlucha nodded its understanding. From its point in the air, the Braviary angled down toward Hawlucha, becoming cloaked in a yellow light. Right before it hit the ground, the pokemon leveled out, and came straight for Hawlucha. Hopping to the side, Ruby’s pokemon narrowly dodged the attack. “Nice job, Chu!”
 
“Again, Braviary! Brave Bird!” And again, the Braviary took off into the air, Hawlucha watching its every move. It angled down, and leveled out right before hitting the ground.
 
“Dodge it again!” Just before the Braviary hit, Hawlucha dodged to the side… And the Braviary followed. It smashed into Hawlucha, sending the pokemon across the battlefield. “Hawlucha!!” Ruby shouted. Hawlucha skidded across the ground, barely able to stand. It then collapsed, and Ruby returned it to its Quick Ball. “Thank you,” she said.
 
“Okay.” Ruby new it probably wasn’t her best choice, but she threw out her other Quick Ball immediately. “Mudsdale! Lets go!” The Draft Horse pokemon appeared in a flash of blue light, and landed with a thud on the ground. “Start with Rock Tomb!” she called out to her.
 
On the other side of the battle field, Kahili called out to her Braviary. “Brave Bird, again!”
 
Before Ruby could even think, the Braviary had smashed into Mudsdale. She barely moved an inch, though. A red aura appeared around Mudsdale, showing the raise in its Defense. The pokemon reared and smashed her hooves onto the ground, and a cascade of rocks came crashing down from the ceiling. They landed right on top of the Braviary.
 
“Braviary!” Kahili called out. It was evident that the pokemon was unable to battle. The trainer sighed, “Return,” she said. A beam of blue light reached into the rocks, and pulled back out a few seconds later. She pulled another pokeball off her belt. “All right then, Hawlucha!”
 
Is this a joke? Ruby thought as the Hawlucha landed. “Mudsdale use Rock Tom-”
 
“Flying Press!” Kahili called over the top of Ruby. The Hawlucha took a running start, and flung itself into the air.
 
“Get ready for that, Mudsdale!” she called out. Instead of dodging it, Mudsdale took it head on. The Hawlucha smashed into Mudsdale from above. It then hopped off, and ran back over to it’s trainers side of the field. Another red aura materialized to show Mudsdale’s Defense raise again. Good. Ruby thought. “Rock Tomb!” she called out, hoping to not be interrupted. The ground type pokemon reared, and smashed her hooves onto the ground like last time. Another cascade of rocks came tumbling down.
 
“Hawlucha, dodge that!” Kahili hollered. It zipped around, dodging the rocks for the most part. Ruby watched as a few smaller ones hit the top of its head and pelted its back, but the worst of it was already on the ground.
 
This isn’t working, “Mudsdale,” she called out. The pokemon flicked her ears in acknowledgement. “Return.” Ruby held out her pokemons Quick Ball, and a beam of blue light enveloped her pokemon. “Thank you, you were amazing.” she whispered. Hooking it back on her belt, she pulled a normal Pokeball off. “Raichu! Go!” Her Alolan Raichu popped out of its ball in a flash of light, and landed inches above the ground, staying afloat on its tail.
 
“Flying Press!” Kahili commanded her pokemon. The Hawlucha took a leap, and flew into the air. It crashed down on top of Raichu.
 
“Ge-” Ruby watched as Raichu floated back up, nearly unscathed. “Alright then. Physic!” She looked on as Raichu sent purple and pink waves toward the Hawlucha.
 
“Move outta the way!” Kahili hollered. But it was to late. The attack connected, and the Hawlucha crumpled to the ground. Kahili withdrew her pokemon, and wasted no time in throwing out another ball. “Go Mandibuzz! And use Toxic!” The pokemon burst out of its ball, and sent a wave of poison toward Raichu, wasting no time.
 
“Dodge it, Rai!” Ruby commanded. Raichu floated over it with ease. “And use Thunder Bolt!” The Raichu charged up power in its cheeks for a moment, before releasing it out in a flash of lightning. It landed directly on top of the Mandibuzz, pushing it to the ground.
 
“Mandibuzz!” Kahili called out with worry. Mandibuzz stood back up, and ruffled its feathers, letting out a defiant screech. “Use Toxic, again!” Screeching more, the Mandibuzz took flight, and sent another purple wave pulsing towards Raichu.
 
“Go around it!” Ruby called out. She watched in dismay as it cascaded over her pokemon. Raichu floated toward the ground, overcome by the poison. “Can you battle, Rai?” Ruby asked. He shook himself, and nodded back at Ruby. “Good. Then use Thunder Bolt again!”
 
Another bolt of lightning crashed down on the Mandibuzz. Ruby could hear Kahili calling out for the pokemon to dodge, but she payed no mind. Ruby watched in satisfaction as the opposing pokemon fell to ground, unmoving. “Return.” Kahili said, sounding out of breath. “Well,” she said, addressing Ruby. “I have one pokemon left. Lets see how you fare.” She tossed out her last pokeball. “Go Toucy!” A Toucannon was sent out, and it landed with a heavy thump.
 
“Raichu, Thund-” Ruby stopped short, and watched in dismay as Raichu tried to fight off the poison. “Are you ok?” He looked back at her, and nodded weakly. “Ok then… Thunder Bolt! And give it all you’ve got!”
 
“Toucy, get ready to dodge that!” Kahili called out. Ruby watched as Raichu floated up to a spot in the air, faltering from the poison. Ruby knew it’d get worse, but if Raichu could end it now… He curled into what seemed like a ball almost, and released a huge bolt of lightning onto the Toucannon. “Toucy!” Kahili hollered. It was pointless, as the pokemon was hit by the move, it crumpled down. “No!”
 
“Nice one Raichu!” Ruby said. The battle was won, and she returned him to his Pokeball.
 
Kahili did the same. “You have proven yourself worthy of moving on.” She started. “My you continue your battles with the best of luck.” Kahili stepped of the podium she was on, and Ruby noticed for the first time that is was just like the one in the middle of the main chamber. As she stared, it pulsed with different colors. “Step on this,” Kahili said. “And it will take you back to the main chamber.”
 
Obliging, Ruby stepped on the stone. Her vision flashed white, and before she knew it, she was standing back in the middle of the first room. “What?” she asked out loud. Mudsdales Pokeball shook from its place on her trainers belt. Ruby let the Pokemon out of its ball, along with Raichu and Hawlucha. “Here you go guys. You did great.” She sprayed Raichu and Mudsdale with a Full Restore, and gave Hawlucha, who was barely standing, a Max Revive.
 
“Alright then…” Ruby said, returning the Pokemon to their balls. “Where to next?”
_____________

I probably should have put this in a spoiler box, but oh well its here. 😛 The Hawlucha didnt actually dodge two Bravebirds, that was me trying to make it longer. IRL THO, i was an idiot and decided to do hone claws and not an actually damaging move while hawlucha was absolutely destroyed by the braviary. 😛
It might me a while till i post the next chapter, i haven’t even written it yet, but i WILL put it up eventually 😛
Anyways, hope you enjoyed!

In the very first thing, I think Ruby is called Sapphire. I could be wrong or you might have been talking about two different characters, but just wanted to let you know! Oh yeah, also great job!

I’m back! With some more Wonderlocke!

Post game
The professor comes and gives me a master ball, and I wander aimlessly. I find Hop in slumbering Weald, and Hop challenges me to a battle. Dubwool uses Cotten guard, but I one shot it with Hippowdon’s earthquake, which crit. Cramorant takes Alcreme’s dazzling gleam and hits back with steel wing, and Hop uses a full restore, but two dazzling gleams later I take it out. Pincurchin goes down to Hippowdon’s earthquake, and Corvinight goes down to pyro ball. I miss a Heart Attack, take tons of damage, then get hit with a high horsepower from hop’s snorlax. Cinderace takes the hit, and I switch in Hippowdon who takes another high horsepower, and takes out snorlax with earthquake. Hippowdon takes a pyro ball from hop’s Cinderace, and then defeats it with earthquake. I beat Hop. After the battle Drakloak evolves, so that’s nice. I get Sonia’s book the odd haired twins come over. They insult Sonia’s book, so they have to die. And then they take tiny dagger as soon as I put it back! Squidward (yes that’s what I’m calling him) challenges me to a battle. He sends a Sirfetch’d, and while I switch to Alcreme it sets up a swords dance. Ugh…flashbacks…but I one shot it with dazzling gleam. I send in Hippowdon to take out Doulblade, and he one shots it with earthquake. I bring out Dragapult to fight Golisopod, and Golisopod fires of a sucker punch, but Dragapult was enough to trigger emergency exit, and he brings in bisharp. I switch in Hippowdon, who takes a night slash. Bisharp uses swords dance, but I kill it (horrible time to make me kill a bisharp game) with earthquake before it can use an attack. I bring out Faolan to take out Golisopod, and I beat Squidward. I take back tiny dagger. They accuse me of vandalism and then run away before I can use the tiny dagger. Aaannnddddd that’s it. Have a great rest of your day!!!

Wow, I did not expect this to happen so quickly. In around 24 hours, you guys gave me a full team of six. Thanks to everyone who gave me pokemon. Except for moon. Moon is evil. (Just kidding, the stuff you write is to good for you to be evil.) Anywayyyyyyy, here is my team, as fully evolved as they will get:
From Monkeyfur, Morpeko
From Bloompaw, Flareon
Also From Bloompaw, Milcery
From the evil Moon, Snom (No I cannot evolve it.)
From Pineblossom, Corviknight. (Thanks for giving me a very good pokemon Pineblossom!)
And finally, From Larkfeather, Rapidash. I dont know if it is galarian or Kantonian, so if you can let me know which one it is, it would be a big help.

Day 1
I choose grookey, but that dosent matter other than hop having a sobble. After chasing a wooloo through the slumbering weald, I catch a rookidee, name it Flaps, and imediatly have trouble killing a wooloo. Okayyyyyyyy. That was weird. A quick look at rookidee’s stats, and it becomes obvious I have gain some levels. I get to level eight, and manage to take out Hop’s three pokemon with my one. After that, Leon finally agrees to endorse us, and we head for the wild area.

Did I mention I love Postwick? Well I do. I love how it looks, I love the background, but my favorite part is the theme. It is cheery, but also melancholy, like you know that once you go on your journey, you wont be coming back for weeks, months, mabye even years. *Sighs* Anyway… so that was part one. Sorry I couldn’t do more, but I didn’t have a ton of time today, so this if what you get, I hope you enjoy it! Next time, we should be welcoming a few more teamates.

i literally almost cry when i think about this being over :(((

Chapter 9
X POV, 9:43 PM
“I’d like to see you try.” Alain’s voice was ice cold, and X could have sworn he saw his eyes flash an electric, fiery blue. Besides him, Kuro stepped forwards and then roared, shooting a huge column of fire into the air. But Lysandre just stared him down, meeting his gaze evenly, and then let out a harsh bark of laughter that sent shivers down X’s spine. How is he even doing this? He wanted to ask. The words never came. Instead, Grenousso and Elec both stepped up beside him, as the whole line took a single step forwards.

“You really think you can stop me?” Lysandre said incredulously. “The countdown to destruction will not stop!” Then he held out one hand, the brown device on his arm sprouting two wing-like shapes on the front, and multiple more on the sides with a click. X heard somebody behind him gasp. Then the rock Zygarde was drawing back with a cry, and he knew exactly what was coming. 

“Everybody, watch out!” He heard Diantha yell. X threw Mystic’s Great Ball into the air again, and his Meowstic shot forwards. 

“Use Light Screen, quick!” Both he, Valerie, and Olympia yelled. The two male Meowstic fanned out to the sides, while Valerie’s Sylveon leapt to the front. A pink tinted barrier surrounded the entire group, and then the Megalith fired. 

A huge red beam shot from its core, and X gasped. Then he was flying backwards, the heat blazing. He hit the ground before he knew it, wind knocked out from his lungs completely, while Elec and Grenousso landed just a couple feet away. He heard somebody scream, and then it was silent again. X waited for a moment, letting himself catch his breath, and then he stood up, brushing himself off. He was fine. He had to be fine. 

“Grenousso, Elec, Mystic! Everybody okay?” His Greninja climbed to his feet first, and then nodded. Mystic and Elec followed, though the Meowstic winced, clearly having taken the most damage from being on the front lines. “Mystic, thank you. Return.” X held out a Great Ball, and the Meowstic disappeared in a flash of blue light. Then he turned, watching as the rest of their team climbed to their feet shakily, and met Lysandre’s gaze once again. 

“X, what do we do?” Somebody asked. It sounded like Shauna, but X couldn’t be bothered to turn around and check. He tried to think, as Lysandre raised his arm and the Megalith started crawling forwards once more. It was moving. It still had all of that power, even though they’d rescued Chespie. How? He tried to think. But he wasn’t the smart one. X never had been. That was-

“X, I’ve got it!” Well, it had always been Trevor. X turned as his friend tapped him on the shoulder. He had it? “It’s got something to do with the device on Lysandre’s arm, I just know it. We need to get rid of it!” He pestered. The device? X turned back to stare at Lysandre’s, whose arm was extended. He watched, for just a moment. Then he nodded. 

“I gotcha. Thanks, Trevor.” He hoped he was right. He really, really, hoped he was right. If not, how else were they supposed to stop him? He took a deep breath, and then turned to his entire team. “Everybody, listen to me! The power controlling the Megalith has something to do with the device on Lysandre’s arm!” X yelled. Everybody turned to stare at him, and he just met their eyes evenly and calmly. He had to be calm, strong, brave. He was their Champion. He had to prove it. And when nobody spoke for a long moment, it was Alain who stepped up, his eyes shining with absolute fire, and X felt so, so thankful. 

“Then we have to destroy it at once,” he said. Everybody turned to both of them, and then nodded. X’s face twitched into a slight smile, and then he turned back to face the Megalith, which grew closer and closer. Then, without thinking, he just sprinted forwards.

“Just like rescuing Chespie! Alain and I will get up there and destroy it, if you can all cover us!” X yelled, sprinting forwards. Grenousso leapt up besides up, flipping and then slicing through a vine with Aerial Ace. But it wasn’t the same. It wasn’t the same as before – it wasn’t just the vines, coming from each and every direction, and it wasn’t just running and defending and covering. Because before X knew, there was another red beam, and then he was flying backwards. There was no time for a Light Screen, and he knew he wasn’t the only one who screamed. He landed on the ground with a thud, Grenousso at his side. Elec lay unmoving before reverting to his normal form, and X swore to himself. One hit, and Elec was out. Dangit. He muttered a thank you, and then returned the Manectric to his Pokeball with a flash. Around him, trainers and Pokemon were both climbing to their feet – Elec wasn’t the only one unconscious, either. He saw Y, returning an unmoving Queen and swearing at the tear in her wingsuit, while Alain stood with Kuro and Mairin, the Charizard having sheltered both of them from most of the attack. Alain sprayed him with a Super Potion, and X stood up, brushing himself off again. He turned to stare at the Megalith again, and Lysandre standing on top of it, the device on his arm completely intact. What did they do now? They couldn’t even get close, let alone climb to the top of the rock and take out Lysandre. X took a deep breath. Think. He had to think. They had to do something, and he had to at least try-

“Squishy!” Shauna cried. X whipped around, and so did Y. 

“Squishy?” The Sky Trainer asked, fear edging her voice. Both cores had leapt out of Shauna’s arms, hopping forwards. X stared, but didn’t move. Then he looked back at the Megalith, at the Zygarde standing forwards together, shining green-

I am Zygarde, defender of order! A voice echoed. X froze. He stared, openly, at Squishy and the other core – one green and red, one green and blue – both standing in front of them all, between them at the Megalith. What was… What the hell? Did Squishy just talk? He turned to Alain, who didn’t look away from the Zygarde, and at Y, whose jaw dropped. A green shield appeared around both cores, and they shone the same emerald as they did back when they… transformed. 

We will show them our true power! Then there were two voices, as green waves shot out in all directions. X couldn’t help it. He just stared. He didn’t know what there was to say, except for that he really, really, hoped they were on the right side-

You won’t destroy the world! The Zygarde declared. And then the streamers of green came pouring in from all directions – dozens, it seemed. A hundred. They kept coming, as the two cores stood and crackled with a blazing lime green. Then they were glowing, with a blinding green flash, and X recoiled. It was bright. It was so, so bright- 

A green column shot into the air. Both Zygarde began to float, turning into nothing but white orbs of light, merging together and then shifting into some X had never, ever seen before. It stretched, growing limbs and a huge body, tendrils shooting out from its shoulders. Then it flashed a violet, smoky purple, and the light was gone. 

“Squishy!” Y screamed. X couldn’t see Squishy anymore. Instead, floating in the air, was a huge, black, mecha shaped creature, with huge green claws, and tendril-like limbs coming from its shoulders. The ones on its right side were tipped with the cyan of Z-2’s core, and the left with the vermillion of Squishy’s. 

“Is that… Zygarde?” Alain asked. And somehow, X felt like he already knew the answer. 

“Those deep green eyes,” Olympia echoed. Her eyes were wide and blank, and X nodded. “That is it – the form when all has become one!” And he remembered. He remembered, back when he’d challenged Olympia for his seventh gym badge – it had seemed so, so far fetched at the time. A green flame, that would engulf Kalos completely. A future, that Olympia had seen, and then she’d continued to promise that they’d all play a substantial role in the chaos. And here they were. Zygarde, floating above them. Lysandre and the Megalith, making one last stand. And as Team Flare’s leader stepped forwards, X could see the absolute fury in his eyes. 

“And still, you hid this form from me?” He spat. X refused to flinch – to move, to back down. “You must have been seeing the world in the same way I was!” He persisted. “The unlimited greed of humans has sent the world spinning into chaos – have you not felt that? If I had not raised my objections, the world would have continued on its warped path. But now, you choose to appear? What could possibly be left to defend? You have no right!” He screeched. X didn’t move. He watched, as Lysandre’s face contorted into pure rage. And he watched, as Zygarde floated calmly, waiting for a long moment. Then its eyes flashed a blazing white, and spoke. 

“If it is a right you speak of, this world belongs to them!” Zygarde said. The dual voices were real, this time, bold and echoing across the barren, burnt field. X’s jaw dropped. “I have placed my hopes in humanity. They have always protected me, and they kept their promise not to leave my side! Now it is my turn!” Zygarde shot out one arm. X gasped. 

“I will incinerate you!” Lysandre roared, the brown device on his arm flipping out. The Megalith shone scarlet, and then fired off a blazing red beam. X blinked. Then Zygarde was countering, all four tendrils on its shoulders opening to launch off a swirling Dragon Pulse. It met the beam in the middle, and everything exploded into smoke. Debris flew everywhere, and X covered his face with one arm, shutting his eyes when the light burst everywhere. Then the Zygarde Megalith cried out again, twisting red vines shooting out of the ground. The real Zygarde shot into the air, swerving and spinning around each and every attack with a flawless, honed precision, and then it turned. In a flash, it shone green with the power of an Extreme Speed, and smashed through not only all the vines, but right into the Megalith’s core. It skidded backwards, and Lysandre extended his arm again. 

“Ignorant fool!” He screamed. X froze. He blinked, once. Then he moved. 

“Grenousso, now! Use Water Shuriken!” He yelled. Without hesitation, his Greninja leapt into the air, drawing the Water Shuriken off of his back. Then Alain was on his right, Kuro shooting into the air with a roar.

“Kuro, use Flamethrower!” Alain screamed. And then they were both firing, the attacks flying and smashing into Lysandre’s arm. The device clattered to the rock surface of the Zygarde, panels shattering. Lysandre stared, clutching the spot on his right arm where it used to be. He gaped, up at Zygarde, and then down at X and Alain. The Champion looked at him, meeting his gaze evenly and calmly, with all the authority he could muster. 

“You failed, Lysandre.” X’s voice echoed across the plain, and he felt everyone turning to stare at him. He didn’t look at them. He just swallowed, and looked at Lysandre, who stared at Zygarde, eyes wide. 

“It can’t be!” He stammered, staggering backwards. “All of my meticulous planning was perfect!” Zygarde just stared down at him, and then X could have sworn it shook its head. And wordlessly, it shot forwards again, glowing green, and pierced right through the Megalith’s core. 

There was a shattering noise, as scarlet crystals flew everywhere. Lysandre stumbled backwards with a scream. The Megalith was shaking, exploding with red energy and white beams of light. Zygarde shot back into the air, spinning once. He shone green. X gasped. 

“Kalos! We are Zygarde, and we will protect you!” And then there was a blue and green beam, and orb, charging and charging and ready to aim-

“Squishy, go!” Y screamed. And then it fired. A beam, swirling with blue, violet, and green, pierced into the ground, shooting in one direction and then another. It formed a blazing green Z on the ground. It was silent, for just a moment. Then, X breathed, and it all exploded. 

“No, not yet!” He heard Lysandre scream. “It’s not over yet! I’ll still-” His voice was cut off by an explosion. Everything flared into a blinding lime colored light, followed by a green smoke that enveloped the entire Megalith. Then rocks were flying everywhere, beams of white light shooting through the air. X forced himself to stand, silently, strong. He watched, as the Megalith exploded. As the green light shot out in all directions, and as Lysandre screamed one last time. Then, suddenly, it was all over. 

About thirty seconds later, the smoke entirely cleared. X blinked, once, and then twice. He scanned the crowd for his friends, who all stood, silently, jaws slightly agape. He looked at Zygarde, still floating in the air. At the huge crater in the ground, and the pile of rock and rubble. At Alain and Kuro, who’d lost far too much in the fight. At Mairin, with Chespie in her arms, and at everybody, who all stood silently. Nobody moved, for a long moment. And then somebody cheered, followed by another and another, and X grinned. 

“We won, X,” Y said softly. She stared at him, and then down at the tear in her wingsuit, and smiled. “I can’t believe we actually won.” He smiled back at her. 

“Me neither,” he answered honestly. “But we did. And thank you.” He took her hand and squeezed it, a promise to talk later, and then walked away. He had an entire League to check on, firstly. 

“Everybody good?” He called out. But he already knew the answer. He looked out at their team, at his friends, the Gym Leaders, Malva, Diantha. Steven, Professor Sycamore, Mairin, and Alain. They were nearly all smiling, and when they nodded, X just felt happy. He felt happy, knowing that he’d been able to step up when they all needed him the most. He felt happy, knowing that he’d done his job right, and that they’d all live another day. 

So he just stood there and watched – watched, as Malva headed out with a promise to round up Team Flare and turn herself in. Watched, as Chespie finally woke up, sending tears pouring down Mairin’s face. But he knew they were the happy kind, and X was more than okay with that. Alain and the Professor were there, as his friend said something to Mairin, only for her to shake her head. Knowing Alain, he was probably apologizing, even though nothing here had ever been his fault. He watched, as they all said goodbye to the two Zygarde, and he’d held Y’s hand when she cried, promising that she’d find Squishy again one day. He watched, as the Gym Leaders all said their goodbyes, and got rides from Anistar City back to their own homes. He watched, as his friends all smiled and hugged and cheered, even as he remained a few feet apart. He watched, the way Alain so carefully handled both his Mega Ring and Kuro’s Charizardite, before placing them in the corner of his bag, where he couldn’t see them anymore, alongside Lance’s empty Ultra Ball, retrieved from the helicopter. 

And when the crowd had almost completely cleared – when it was just him, and his friends, who had never, ever let him down – X finally collapsed, laying on the ground, looking up at the stars. The red clouds had cleared, and he smiled, as Grenousso lay at his side and Y on the other, folding her hand in with his. They just watched, the twinkling of the stars against the midnight blue sky. And X was happy, knowing what they’d done. Lysandre was gone. All it had taken was that one shot they had, and the one shot they took. They’d set his dream on fire, watched it go up in flames, and then burnt it to nothing but ashes. 

And now, X knew, they’d set the entire world free. And what a beautiful, perfect world it was. 

oh my god. it’s over. it’s over. zygarde pulls through. lysandre falls, and before you ask – he’s dead. he’s completely, thoroughly dead. as in they find the body later dead. bc i hate him and he deserves to die. but anyways, so. uh. arceus, i don’t even know what to say. welp. i’m sad this is over. thank you for reading. thank you for commenting. thank you for everything. i love you guys so much, and this is why i write. i write to share with you guys, in hopes that i’ll just… make somebody happy, i guess. i don’t know. that’s why i’m so sad – i may have finished this fic a month ago, but i’m sad now. not then. when i finish posting is when it’s over. but i’m trying to write this note and nothing is coming to me, so for now, i’ll just leave it. maybe i’ll make a nice long author’s note in the replies later on, if i can think of anything. but for now? Q&A questions are much appreciated, and yeah. so are comments, so are everything, idek. thanks for everything, guys. thanks for sticking with me. thanks for loving this fic (i hope) like i did. it means so, so much to be me that people like my stuff.

oh, and i almost forgot. i drew a fourth 3T1L, back when i did the other three. not a POV kid though, so the plan was to post it with the final chapter. especially since it’s… a post-canon design. yes, i’m confusing 😛 so. here. this is my favorite (after alain’s) of the ignire 3T1Ls. it is so cute and i love it so, so much. so here. have a post canon Mairin, with part of her one-day team, and a keldeo – the final sword of justice. i hope you like it <3

(the chesnaught is chespie, evolved and grown up. bebe is her florges, who she caught as a flabebe in the canon. and kira is her mega mawile – i feel like it fits her the best out of all the mega options, and of course she’s going to get one. it’s cute. it’s adorable. IT RUINED THE COLOR SCHEME. but fineeee 😛 )

Nooooooooooo! its over! this was my favorite of all of your fanfics so far. Y was awesome, Alain was a fun POV to read from (even if it was depressing) and X, while my least favorite of the three, had its high points. the 3the 3T1L is beautiful, by the way. I was super exited for the finale (seriously I checked this page like ten times hoping to see if it was up.) and you did not disappoint. great job!

i’m so sad it’s over too :((( thank you so much! i liked this one too – i’ve definitely improved a lot lately! 😀 y was incredible – i love her, too. alain’s POV was admittedly painful to write and read, and had a lot of angst, but i had a lot of fun with it. x is admittedly my least favorite too, but i still love him – it’s unfortunate that the other two POV kids are some of my favorite characters i’ve ever written. put up against any other characters, and maybe X could have been my favorite!

i’m glad you like the drawing! 😀 i did post this chapter earlier today, but modding takes a little while sometimes 😛

i’m so happy you enjoyed this fic, cinderpaw <3

This was amazziiinnnngggggg!!!! But all great things must come to an end I suppose. And now it’s more questions.

X Y and Alain-if you could catch any legendary Pokémon what would you catch?
X and Y-why do you go by X and Y rather then your full names? Any reason or just because it’s shorter?
Kuro and Alain-how you’ll you describe your relationship?
X and Grenousso (hope I spelled that right)-how would you describe your relationship?
Mairin-how did you feel when Chespie woke up?

i think this is all the questions I have in me. Hope I provided enough!


THERE IS NO CHAIN

it’s…. over. isn’t it. isn’t it, isn’t it over?

so why can’t i move on?

in the end, the heroes pull through, as they always do. lysandre has finally been put in the grave, where he belonged since he started this entire endeavor. still, there are costs to be had for fighting against him.

x know understands his place in the world – as the kalos champion – but really, how much pressure will he take before he implodes?

y is ever protective of her friends and family – when will that protectiveness push them away? when will she be able to rest again?

alain. he suffered so, so much. even though the source of his original suffering is dead, a new enemy remains in himself. lysandre’s body is dead – but his words will remain in alain’s mind for years to come. and yet….

and yet…

i’m sure they would do it all again.

because these kids are brave. these kids are smart. and these kids, most importantly, are loving.

why does my heart hurt for a journey i never took? for people who never existed? because of you, moon. you crafted something beautiful out of the torment – a world of humanly flawed people. every word is a drop of paint, every sentence a paintstroke in your masterpiece. and even when you put me through heck and back – you still delivered a happy ending.

and i will cherish it.

so thank you, moon. for sharing your writing even when the internet can be cruel – i loved this fic through and through. <3

rose. rose. you made me cry. you flat out made me cry. you’re the best person ever and i love you. you have no idea how much this comment means to me. i’ve never gotten a comment like this before and i’m an emotional mess. the fact that you enjoyed it this much – that you love the characters like i do, that you stuck with me, with them – it means so much. i don’t even know how to reply anymore. i just… i’m crying, i love you, and this means the entire world to me. thank you. thank you for reading, thank you for commenting, thank you for loving. it means everything <3

I made this… thing I guess? With ignire quotes. I guess you could call it art? I’m terrible at drawing, so I decided to kind of make a collage (I think that is how you spell it) of my favorite quotes from the fic. It is pretty simple, and it isn’t much, but I wanted to share it because… I dont know really. There are so many great quotes, this is just the tip of the iceberg. There were so many things I wanted to include, I might make a second. I tried to include ones that were meaningfull, ones that had a lot of emotion, or ones that made me laugh. (Hence the one where Steven casually says that he BLEW UP THE ENTRANCE TO LYSANDERE LABS) Anyway, here it is. I hope you like it

i cried. cinderpaw, i flat out cried. i saw this and started crying because you guys have no idea how much this means to me. i don’t care if it’s simple. i really don’t. but you made something, you love the fic that much to put time into making something, and that means the entire freaking world to me at this point. so yeah. i cried, because i love it. i love you. i love everyone here. thank you so, so much. i cannot express how happy this makes me. and so yes i started crying and took five minutes to just calm down and breathe. i love it. it’s perfect, it’s beautiful. you chose wonderful quotes. thank you, again, because this means the world to me <3
