CHAPTER 14: THE LOSTLORN FOREST
Now: Pikachu’s still running towards the Lostlorn Forest. Mew called Rayquaza who arrived there. Rayquaza was shocked to see such terrible scene.
Mew – Rayquaza, I need your help.
Rayquaza helped them and used his Air Lock ability to stop destruction. Arceus’ rage was catalyzing the destruction. Meanwhile, Keldeo arrived at the Deep Sea Basin. He met Kyogre.
Kyogre – Who seeks to intrude my domain?
Keldeo – Lord Kyogre, I am here to seek help.
Kyogre – Help?
Keldeo – My Lord…
Kyogre – I know and that’s why I am coming with you.
Keldeo – Really?
Kyogre – But…
Keldeo – But?
Kyogre – But you have to defeat me in a duel.
Keldeo – What?
Then Kyogre attacked Keldeo and then they began to battle.
Back at the Volcanic Pit, Weavile confronted Groudon.
Groudon – Weavile, what do you want to mar here?
Weavile – I’m not here to mutilate anything. I need your help.
Groudon – An evil needs the help of others only to accomplish evil deeds.
Weavile – But I’m an exception.
Groudon – Then prove this…
Weavile – What?
Groudon – Defeat me in a duel. Victory of yours shall prove your change.
Groudon used his powers and attacked Weavile.
In the meantime, Pikachu arrived at the Lostlorn Forest’s entrance. He heard very strange sound and voices. Someone touched him from behind. He cried. He said, “O man, what an omen! I think I should proceed.” Then he went in the Forest but he didn’t know the danger waiting ahead for him. He was moving in the forest. The thick fog, darkness and strange voices were creating horror in him. His feet were trembling and he was sweating. His heart was panting wildly. Suddenly, someone said, “Pikachu” He cried, “Don’t come to me. Stay away.” Then he saw that it was Dusknoir who was turned into a Duskull. Pikachu said, “Why did you scare me?” Dusknoir said, “Sorry to frighten you. What are you doing here?” Pikachu said, “The same question, I should ask you.” Dusknoir said, “I am here to help you.” Pikachu said, “But who send you here?” Dusknoir said, “Mew.” Pikachu said, “I am going to get the Jewel of Life.” Dusknoir said, “Mew know everything then why do she not doing anything. She could protect them. She herself alone can defeat him.” Pikachu was silenced.
Dusknoir – Pikachu, what’s up?
Pikachu – Dusknoir, I think you’re right. Is Mew a traitor?
Dusknoir – What?
Pikachu – She could revive Grovyle and others but she is not. She could defeat Darkrai. She knew the location of the Five Jewels but she is not. What is in her mind?
Mew knew what was going on in Pikachu’s mind. She said to herself, “Pikachu’s trust on me has begun to shatter. I think the time has come.” Pikachu finally arrived at the mid of the Lostlorn Forest. Dusknoir said, “Pikachu, do you know the lore of the Lostlorn Forest?”
Pikachu – Nopes I don’t know.
Dusknoir – Should I tell you? But don’t scare. It’s very horrible and suspicious story.
Pikachu – Then we should stay somewhere.
Dusknoir – That’s right. Let’s camp there.
Pikachu and Dusknoir, then, went towards a tree and sat under there. Meanwhile, Keldeo was battling with Kyogre. He was weakened and he couldn’t fight him anymore.
Keldeo – Kyogre, Please stop.
Kyogre – Defeat me or get away from here.
Keldeo was enraged. He gambled for a last time and attacked Kyogre with his full might. It seemed that he won but Kyogre said, “This fight is not yet over.” Keldeo was shocked.
Kyogre – But I end it here. Keldeo, you have proven yourself and your determination. I know about the world’s destruction and I have sent Lapras and Gyarados. I, myself, am going to location where Dialga and Palkia are. Keldeo succeeded and then both left to the Dragon Lake.
Back at the Volcanic Pit, Weavile and Groudon was still fighting. Charizard joined them and the two together defeated Groudon.
Groudon – I’m impressed. Many have tried but none have succeeded. You are true Pokémons. I am off to the Dragon Lake. Now let’s go.
Groudon and Kyogre together went to the Dragon Lake.
In the Lostlorn Forest,
Dusknoir – This forest is fog bound and rumor says that people lost in this forest with no reason.
Pikachu – Is this true or you are haunting me?
Dusknoir – Haunting and you…No. It’s true.
Pikachu – What happened to them then?
Dusknoir – Nobody knows.
Pikachu – What? Huh…
Dusknoir – What happened?
Pikachu – Did you hear that?
Dusknoir – Yes…It seems that several Pokémons are crying…
Pikachu – The voices seems to be coming from that direction.
Dusknoir – Should we go and investigate?
Pikachu – We’re an explorer team. Let’s go and check this out.
Then Pikachu and Dusknoir went towards that direction. In the meantime, Kyogre and Groudon arrived at the Dragon Lake and used their powers along with Rayquaza and tried to stop that collapse. An idea struck Dialga’s mind and he used his Roar of Time and moved that Lake 2 months back in time. Mew and Palkia applauded Dialga for that.
Dialga – There is no time to chat. We have only two months to save the world.
Keldeo – I am going after Pikachu.
Weavile – I’m coming too.
Mew – I am off to Pokémon Federation.
Palkia – Good luck everyone. The sacrifice of Giratina and others won’t go in vain.
Dialga – Palkia, Rayquaza, Kyogre and Groudon, now we should return to our domains.
Then everyone left. Back in the Forest, Dusknoir and Pikachu arrived at a Mountain.
Pikachu – It’s a dead end. From where are the voices coming?
Dusknoir – In the mountain…
Pikachu – What?
Dusknoir – We need to go in.
Pikachu – Then let’s go.
Pikachu and Dusknoir arrived at the base of mountain. The voices became louder and louder. Pikachu understood that they needed to go in. Though he was scared, he puffed up and then both of them went in the cavern. Meanwhile, Mew arrived at the Pokémon Federation. She was reported that the Regis had left already and they were on their way. Mew changed her course to the location. Back at the Mountain,
Pikachu – Its pitch black here.
Dusknoir – Oh! No what a nightmare!
Pikachu – Dusknoir, you’re saying this. Being a ghost, dark type Pokémon, it doesn’t suits you.
Dusknoir – But it suits you well.
Pikachu – Yes. Hey, look there.
Dusknoir – It seems that someone’s there.
Pikachu – Come. Tropius!
Dusknoir – Alakazam!
Pikachu – Gardevoir, Roserade and Gallade! Team Charm’s leaders.
Dusknoir – Who did that to you?
Gardevoir – The evil…
Dusknoir – Is that Darkrai?
Gardevoir – Nopes. It’s someone else. Evil Gang…
Pikachu – What? Evil Gang?
Gardevoir – Don’t make such a blank face showing that you know nothing.
Pikachu – Seriously, I never heard about such a gang.
Dusknoir – You are too much Pikachu.
Gardevoir – Evil Gang is the triad of three criminals who have bounties on their head.
Pikachu – Who are they?
Gallade – They are Gengar, Cryogonal, and Garchomp.
Pikachu – Is this Gengar the same that I and Grovyle once faced in the Silent Valley?
Roserade – Yes. He is the runaway.
Pikachu – Then we need to stop them.
Gallade – Anytime, you may meet them.
Pikachu – In the meantime, Team Charm, you should help others and take them to the Pokémon Federation.
Dusknoir – Now, I know why this place is called Lostlorn Forest?
Pikachu – Lostlorn Forest isn’t the place where people get lost with no reason.
Dusknoir –They are just kidnapped.
Suddenly, a huge explosion took place. Evil Gang enters with their introduction –
When the world is ruled by Light,
when the evil fades away,
a new darkness arrives in the night,
and the true ideals set in the day.
Gengar – the dark ghost
Garchomp – is not your host
Cryogonal – you have just lost
in the forest of course.
Pikachu – Stop your intro, you stupid Evil Gang.
Gengar – We’re not a common Evil gang, we are the extension of Dark Army.
Pikachu – What?
Garchomp – We fight for our right.
Dusknoir – What a joke! You need not to fight for your right.
Gengar – Saying is very easy. Team, let’s show them what we’ve learned.
Then Gengar and others attacked Pikachu and Dusknoir. They dodged and attacked Evil Gang but Gengar caught Pikachu and used Glare. Pikachu was paralyzed. Dusknoir defeated Garchomp and Cryogonal.
Gengar – So you think that you’re the most powerful.
Pikachu – Dusknoir, go away from here.
Dusknoir – I’m not going anywhere. Today’s battle will decide that who has learned.
Gengar – You betrayed master Darkrai. Today I shall take revenge of the betrayal. Prepare!
Then Dusknoir attacked Gengar. Both of them used Shadow Ball and with a huge blast, Dusknoir emerged as the victor. Gengar fell down and his glare faded off. Pikachu was freed and then the two bound them there with a huge rock.
Pikachu – You shall be brought to justice. Officers will be coming. Dusknoir, let’s move on.
Dusknoir – You are a fool to believe on Darkrai.
Pikachu and Dusknoir moved on to the end. They finally arrived at the Lostlorn Forest’s dead end.
Dusknoir – It’s the dead end. Where to go now?
Pikachu – May be here the Jewel of Life?
Dusknoir – It’s impossible. What will happen if I touch this gem?
Pikachu – I think it won’t be right to touch something which we don’t know.
Dusknoir – Oops!
Pikachu – Why did you touch it? Wait, nothing happened.
Suddenly, a portal was created on the ground and it drew them in.
Pikachu – Noooooooooo!
Meanwhile, Darkrai decided to get the Jewel of Life to end the world. He used that as a bait. Mew, too was moving towards the Lostlorn Forest.
Pikachu –Where are we? What in the world is this place?
Pikachu and Dusknoir were at a strange place of which they knew nothing. Keldeo and Weavile were still moving towards the Lostlorn Forest. Will they reach in time? Is this a trap for Pikachu?
CHAPTER 15: THE TWILIGHT
Previously – Pikachu and Dusknoir were on their way to Lostlorn Forest and Dusknoir told him the tale of the Lostlorn Forest. Pikachu heard some voices and they headed for a mountain. Kyogre and Groudon appeared at the Dragon Lake. Dialga used his Roar of Time and took the Lake 2 months back in time. Pikachu and Dusknoir discovered a hidden cavern where they met Tropius and Team Charm and then Evil Gang revealed that Team Charm was kidnapped by Darkrai. Pikachu and Dusknoir defeated them and arrived at the dead end of the dungeon but they arrived at a strange place.
Now – Keldeo and Weavile are still running and they have arrived at the Lostlorn Forest. They have been searching for Pikachu and Dusknoir for a day but they didn’t get any trace. They arrived at the dead end where they met Evil Gang.
Gengar – Keldeo, so you made it so far. But do you think you could proceed further?
Keldeo – Who do you think you are?
Gengar – I’m the incredible Gengar, leader of the Evil Gang, in the service of Lord Darkrai.
Keldeo – Then you’re not our friend.
Weavile – Keldeo, move on.
Gengar – You aren’t going anywhere.
Weavile – Out of the way…
Gengar –Then what will you do?
Darkrai arrived there and said, “Gengar, don’t waste time with them. Move after Pikachu and Dusknoir. I’ll handle them myself.”
Keldeo – Darkrai!
Darkrai – Did you call me? I didn’t notice you because I’m busy searching those jewels these days. Keldeo and Weavile, go back to the Federation and tell Mew that her strategy has failed once again.
Gengar – Hail my Lord Darkrai.
Darkrai – No time to waste. Quick…
Keldeo ran but mistakenly, he was teleported into the world where Pikachu was. Weavile remained outside. Gengar followed Keldeo and he too entered the world. While Darkrai said to Weavile, “It’s not late now. You still have a chance to join me and rebel against these conspiracies of Legendaries. Join me and get your parents back.”
Weavile – I’ll get my parents back but not by your method but by my own. I’ll help them stopping you.
Darkrai – What did they get when they didn’t come along with me? Didn’t they lose everywhere?
Weavile – There’s a proverb, be patient, you’ll get the fruit of your deeds. You’ve faced crushing defeat dozens of times but still you didn’t give up on your schemes. I’ve never seen a fool like you, Darkrai.
Darkrai was enraged – How dare you? Don’t you know the one before you? Learn respecting others from me.
Weavile – Darkrai!
Then Darkrai attacked Weavile and then they began to battle. Meanwhile, Pikachu and Dusknoir were still moving. They didn’t know about the strange place. Pikachu cried, “Is anyone here?” A strange voice came in answer. Both were surprised. Dusknoir said, “Please, help us.” The same voice came again. Pikachu understood that that place wasn’t like other place.
Pikachu – Look at these floating stones and ice sparkling crystals with electric charge. I feel much stronger here.
Dusknoir – This isn’t the place like other places. I think this is the Forbidden World.
Pikachu – Forbidden World?
Dusknoir – Forbidden World is said to be the source of Life’s energy and gives life to all Pokémons.
Pikachu – It means that Jewel of Life must be here.
Pikachu mistakenly stepped on a brick.
Dusknoir –What happened? Is this a tremor?
Pikachu – OMG! This’s a tremor.
The large floating stones began to move and then the thunderous clouds came over the sky and covered it. All this was signifying a bad omen. Pikachu and Dusknoir moved forth. While Keldeo and Gengar had a battle. Gengar used Shadow Claw and Keldeo used Aqua Jet. The blast was so enormous that Pikachu and Dusknoir saw that at once.
Pikachu – Dusknoir, What’s that cloud?
Dusknoir – Move forth. We should go on.
Both of them continued. Meanwhile, in the Poke World. It was the twilight time. Mew still was thinking about the Regis. Rayquaza arrived there and told Mew that Darkrai was in the Lostlorn Forest and she wasn’t taking any action. Mew remained inaudible. Rayquaza himself moved to the Sacred Plains seeking help from Ho-Oh. Mew was anxious for Xatu. She couldn’t connect with Lucario nor with Xatu. Back in the Forbidden World, Pikachu and Dusknoir arrived at the Twisted Mountains where they saw a giant gate.
Pikachu – What should we do now?
Dusknoir – Open sim sim.
Pikachu – What’s this?
Dusknoir – It’s a sort of spell used to open strange gates. It works definitely.
Suddenly, the gate opened.
Dusknoir – See it opened.
Pikachu – It was just luck by chance. Hey! Someone’s there.
Dusknoir – Who’s there?
Pikachu – It’s Regirock…
Pikachu and Dusknoir were surprised to see Regirock there.
Regirock – Regi…rock
Pikachu – What are you doing here?
Suddenly Regirock attacked. Regice and Registeel appeared there. The three attacked Pikachu and Dusknoir. Pikachu was surprised and shocked why they were attacking them. He tried to ask them and calm them down but he failed. Mew, in the Poke World, knew everything but she couldn’t interfere. The Jewel of Life belonged to the Regis. They were the guardians of the Jewel. Back, Darkrai was trying to persuade Weavile to join him but Weavile still insisted not to join him. Darkrai attacked him and then Weavile too. Both were battling for nothing. Keldeo defeated Gengar and then he went after Pikachu and Dusknoir. Darkrai felt his defeat so he, himself, teleported to the Forbidden World by the path in the Forest. Weavile followed him too. Back in the Forbidden World,
Pikachu – We’ve no match against them. What should we do now?
Dusknoir – We should enter the gate.
Pikachu – On your marks! Get set and Go.
Dusknoir and Pikachu then ran into the gate. Regis followed them. The cave was too beautiful. Everywhere was the crystals floating and sparkling with the electric charge. They saw something lustrous at the peak. They ran towards that but suddenly, it became pitch-black when Darkrai arrived there.
Darkrai – You defeated my Minion – Gengar. Pikachu and Dusknoir, where are you going?
Pikachu – We don’t think that it’s important to tell you.
Darkrai – I’ve many tricks to force to tell me.
Weavile came there – No Pikachu and Dusknoir, run from here.
Keldeo attacked Darkrai and Pikachu and Dusknoir escaped. Regis arrived there and through a secret passage they went to a chamber.
Meanwhile, in the Poke World, the sun light was fading into darkness. The stars twinkling and the sea waves trying to meet the shore. Mew understood the signs of bad omen. She moved towards the Lostlorn Forest. Darkrai attacked Keldeo and defeated him at once. Keldeo cried and his voice was heard by the dragons of the Poke World. The statues of Reshiram and Zekrom began to shake. The Light Pillar and the Dark Pillar broke and Reshiram and Zekrom appeared there breaking the seal. Kyurem became overjoyed.
Kyurem – Reshiram and Zekrom, now you’ve arrived. I can make my wish true. I challenge you for a duel. If I win then the Throne of Dragons will be mine and if you win then I’ll be killed.
Reshiram and Zekrom were shocked at that. They didn’t know how to react on that challenge.
Reshiram – Didn’t you hear the cry of Keldeo? He’s in danger, he’s in need.
Kyurem – He can handle this by himself alone.
Zekrom – How cruel!
Kyurem – First both of you have to defeat me in a duel, then you’ll be allowed to help him.
Reshiram and Zekrom were still confused. Meanwhile, Darkrai went after Pikachu and Dusknoir. Pikachu and Dusknoir arrived at the Life’s Chamber. There they saw the four Regis.
Pikachu – The four Regis are already here.
Dusknoir – Hey! Look there.
Pikachu – Isn’t that the Jewel of Life?
Dusknoir – It seems to be. This chamber, I feel so much powerful…
Darkrai – Not you alone. Everyone is powerful here in this world. This Jewel of Life is mine.
Dusknoir – Darkrai! How many time should we tell you that nothing is ours and nothing is ours? It’s everything divine.
Darkrai – Shut up! Regis, what are you waiting for? Attack them immediately.
Pikachu and Dusknoir were surprised. Pikachu – What are you doing?
Darkrai – I should get the Jewel of Life.
Pikachu – Regigigas, see, Darkrai wants to steal the Jewel. We’re here to protect it.
Regis attacked Pikachu and Dusknoir. Weavile and Keldeo protected them. Keldeo used Aqua Tail and attacked Darkrai. Weavile tried to stop Regigigas. Darkrai enveloped everything into darkness. All others lost their powers temporarily.
Darkrai – Enough! Now it’s my time. Weavile, I already told you to join me but you’ve chosen your own demise.
Darkrai attacked Weavile but suddenly, the attacked failed. Darkrai was surprised and questioned himself how that move failed. Pikachu said, “Darkrai, your attacked failed because, Light is here.”
Darkrai – What?
Mew appeared there. Darkrai – O! Mew. Long time no see.
Mew – Regis, Calm down. The true villain is Darkrai. Go and Protect the Je…
Pikachu – Mew?
Dusknoir – What happened?
Keldeo – Why are you looking like orange? Is something wrong?
Mew – The Jewel? Where is it?
Darkrai – Here
Mew – Put it there now.
Darkrai – Nopes. Am I a fool? Why should I restore that thing for which I have struggled?
Mew – Darkrai, Please. You don’t know what will happen. Everything will fall imbalance. Please…
Darkrai – Enough. Balance, Peace, Harmony. The world is made to be ruled either by legendries or by me.
Pikachu attacked Darkrai but Darkrai used the Jewel’s energy and then, Pikachu’s attack was rebounded. The Regis began to vanish. The charge disappeared and the world began to collapse. Mew teleported everyone to the Real world but there they saw the end of the world.
Pikachu – What’s going on?
Mew – The Life is disappearing. Soon, this world will be no more.
Darkrai – No. Mew, this world will survive due to Arceus but the Sun will never rise.
Everyone – What?
Darkrai – Look at this dark sky. The twilight has begun. The fate of this world is darkened by me. The day faded into twilight. Mew! Prepare for your end.
Pikachu – First, you have to defeat us.
Gengar – O! Really, do you think that we‘ll let you do that?
Cryogonal – Let’s finish this once and for all.
Mew – Pikachu, don’t get nervous. Just defeat them. I’ll handle Darkrai.
Mew went towards Darkrai while Pikachu, Keldeo, Dusknoir and Weavile battled with Gengar, Cryogonal and Garchomp.
Darkrai – I was waiting for this moment for long time.
Mew – This battle will decide the dawn and twilight of this world.
Darkrai – After a month again, Mew and Darkrai, once again against each other. Muahahaha…I’ll end you Mew.
Mew – Let time judge the fall and rise.
Darkrai attacked Mew and commenced the battle. Meanwhile Pikachu used Volt Tackle and Keldeo used Aqua Jet and defeated Garchomp. Gengar attacked Weavile and Dusknoir attacked Cryogonal.
Mew and Darkrai were battling. Mew used her full power and Darkrai fell down. Darkrai still wasn’t accepting his failure. Seeing he defeated, Evil Gang ran away. Pikachu and others were delighted. But Darkrai deceived them. Using the powers of Jewel of Life, he absorbed the life of Mew, killing her. Mew fell down. Pikachu and others ran towards her. Pikachu sobbed and wept.
Pikachu – Mew!
Darkrai – Muahahaha… I told you, I’ll kill you. The twilight of Mew, Muahahaha.
Then Darkrai ran away.
Mew – Pikachu, Why are you weeping?
Pikachu – Mew…
Mew – I am just leaving this body but my soul will remain with you forever. Remember, this twilight won’t last longer. You have light inside of you. If you let it out, you can change the world around you.
Pikachu – Mew…
Mew – Good Bye. Keldeo, be strong. Weavile, they’re your friends, never betray them. Dusknoir, trust your friends. Pikachu, weep not. I’m with all of you…forever.
And then Mew vanished. The light of world faded into darkness and with that Darkrai got three of the five Jewels. Pikachu and others were sad for Mew. Meanwhile, back at the Pokémon Union –
Darkrai – Look at this Xatu and Lucario, I got Jewel of Life and Mew…
Lucario – Mew? What happened to her?
Darkrai – I killed Mew. She is no more.
Lucario – What? You will not be pardoned for tis.
Darkrai – Muahahaha…
And then Darkrai left. Lucario cried. He was devising a plan to escape. Meanwhile –
Pikachu – What should I do now?
Keldeo – You’re not alone.
Pikachu – What? Mew and The Regis left us. Darkrai got the Jewel of Life. Look at the dark sky and darkness all around us. Darkrai won. We lost.
Weavile – How can you give up?
Keldeo – I know…
Pikachu – What do you know? I am leaving.
Keldeo – Pikachu!
Dusknoir – Let him go. Don’t stop him. It’ll take time to him to accept what has happened.
Pikachu left and ran away. Back at the Union, Darkrai entered a chamber where he put all the three jewels in a chakra. He put all the three jewels.
Darkrai – Jewel of Life, Energy and Evolution…All are positioned at the right place. The remaining two jewels…I should get them so as to execute my plan.
He looked at a big picture of a strange reindeer like Pokémon with the horns as X.
What Darkrai is going to do? Will Pikachu survive his own deal? Will Keldeo unite the team once again?
