CHAPTER 18: TO THE FINAL ISLAND
Previously: Darkrai has got the Jewel of Nature and captured Pikachu – Reshiram ended – Kyurem and Zekrom are still battling – Victini is missing – Meloetta has defeated – Weavile is missing along with Xatu and Rayquaza. Are they safe or not? Will Pikachu escape?
Now: Darkrai has already got the four Jewels. At the Pokémon Federation,
Officer Charizard – Listen up everyone. The Pokémon Union is under the control of Darkrai. Pikachu of the Legendary Team Pokémon is captured by Darkrai. Lucario, Xatu and Weavile have lost. Now this is our chance to turn the tide in this war.
Magnemite – What are you suggesting Sir?
Charizard – We know we cannot stop Darkrai from getting the fifth Jewel. However if we learn the location of the fifth Jewel, then maybe we can use the fail-safe system?
Magnemite – Sealing the Jewel is the best thing.
Charizard – That’s what I meant.
Magnemite – Then?
Then a voice came saying, “The fifth Jewel is located at the Final Island, the way to the Forge of Creation.”
Charizard – Who said that?
“Me” Then Mewtwo revealed herself.
Charizard – Mewtwo! What are you doing here? You are supposed to be in the Tree of Life.
Mewtwo – My meditation has completed and I’m ready to unlock my new powers.
Charizard – It won’t be good.
Mewtwo – Didn’t you hear what I just said?
Charizard – …
Mewtwo – We’re going to the Final Island. I will avenge Darkrai for what he did.
As planned, Darkrai positioned all the four jewels. Pikachu regained consciousness only to be shocked.
Pikachu – What am I doing here? Which place is it?
Darkrai – Welcome to my poor cottage, Pikachu.
Pikachu – Darkrai! How dare you to arrest me?
Darkrai – Not only this, I also wiped out Xatu, Lucario and Weavile.
Pikachu – Darkrai, you’re not getting away with this.
Darkrai – O! Really. The fifth jewel is in Final Island.
Darkrai moved towards Pikachu and said, “And I will get the fifth jewel for its time to meet my old enemy Mewtwo”
Pikachu – What! Mewtwo?
Darkrai – And then I will wipe out Arceus…
Pikachu was stunned. Darkrai went towards the Final Island. Meanwhile, at the Dragon spiral tower, Zekrom knew that she couldn’t defeat Kyurem without Reshiram so she ran away from there to bring her back. She knew a way to resurrect Reshiram – The Light Stone. Kyurem said, “I am sparing your life and giving you sometime. Come again and then I shall decide your fate.” At the North Pole, Victini was cataleptic and Meloetta on seeing her was surprised. She stood up and looked everywhere and learnt that it was Ice prison.
Meloetta – This is the Ice Prison. O! No, we are at the Final Island…. I just need to release ourselves from this prison somehow but how?
Back at the Nature’s Temple Sea, Lucario woke up and found himself on a shore. Xatu was there unconscious and even Weavile was there. Lucario woke up Xatu but was shocked when he learnt that Xatu lost his past memories. Then Weavile woke up and came there. Lucario tried to search and manipulate his Aura but he failed. He couldn’t even see his Aura. They were just feared what to do then. Suddenly, an old Pokémon came there. He said, “To restore his memories, you have to connect him with his past lives.”
Lucario and Weavile were startled. Lucario asked him what his good name was.
He said, “I am Torkoal – the elder of the Arsenilia. Xatu has lost his connection with his spirit. In order to restore his senses, you need to take him to the Spiritual Pool at the North Pole.”
Lucario – You mean Icinia – the Gyarados’ Kingdom.
Torkoal – Yes. If you failed, then…
Lucario – Then?
Torkoal – Don’t think about that. I wish for your success.
Lucario – Then, Weavile, let’s go now.
Lucario and Weavile took Xatu towards the North Pole. Meanwhile, Dialga and Palkia didn’t want to enter the war but unfortunately, Darkrai attacked the Temporal Tower and Spacial Rift forcing them to enter. Dialga and Palkia stood together against the evil Darkrai.
Darkrai – Dialga and Palkia. It’s been a long time.
Dialga – Darkrai! We don’t want to enter. We have already been defeated a dozen times and now, we cannot.
Palkia – Darkrai, do what you want. We shall not stop you.
Arceus was hearing everything. He was astonished at the words of Palkia and Dialga. His rage increased and a wave went through the Universe. Everyone felt the shock and the enormous power. Dialga and Palkia felt the power and knew that Lord Arceus was enraged. Darkrai provoked them to enter and then Dialga and Palkia attacked Darkrai simultaneously. They didn’t understand the scheme of Darkrai but entered. Darkrai used this in his good turn. He attacked Dialga and Palkia with their similar moves by Copycat and then both were injured. Dialga and Palkia fell down.
Darkrai – You are really a fool. You didn’t understand and just entered. You yourselves are responsible for your own demise. Enjoy your final days.
Darkrai has defeated Dialga and Palkia and then they could stop him to any further extent. He, then turned his attention towards the North Pole. Executing his plan, he went towards the Spiritual Pool of the North Pole to get the Jewel of Prosperity. Meanwhile, in the Pokémon Union, Pikachu was trying to escape but he failed. He tried again and again, used the electric attacks but all were rebounded and injured him. He lost his hope and his eyes closed.
He heard a mysterious voice – “Pikachu, you cannot give up. You are the thunder warrior – the hope of the world. The fate of the Universe lies in you. You have the key to unlock yourself. Do not give up, you are Pikachu.” Suddenly, Pikachu’s body began to glow brightly. Electric sparks were emitted from his body and then with a huge blast, he destroyed the prison and then got the four Jewels and ran towards the Spiritual Pool. Back at the North,
Vigoroth – What’s up with the air?
Slaking – It’s somewhat like…Hmmm… I feel something terrible is about to happen.
Vigoroth – We must tell this to the lord.
Darkrai – O! Don’t bother. I’ll do it for you.
Vigoroth – Who are you?
Darkrai – Don’t you know who I am? What a shame for you! I’m Darkrai – the evil King and the beginner of the new era of darkness.
Vigoroth – There’s only one lord of the Universe – Lord Arceus. No one except him could rule this world.
Darkrai – O! Really because I am about to.
Suddenly, Darkrai attacked Vigoroth and Slaking and made them to sleep. Then he attacked at the Palace of Gyarados.
Darkrai – Gyarados, Where is Victory and Melody Pokémon?
Gyarados – About whom are you speaking?
Darkrai – Should I make you remember that?
Gyarados – Can you?
Darkrai – You have done a grave mistake to provoke my rage.
Then Darkrai attacked Gyarados who put a strong resistance against him. The army of the Palace fell asleep. Gyarados asked him what he has done to them. Darkrai replied that they needed some rest. Darkrai defeated Gyarados Passively. It was all one side battle.
Darkrai – Are you going to tell me?
Gyarados – They are thrown in the Spiritual Pool.
Darkrai – That’s good.
Gyarados – They are my prisoners.
Darkrai – Maybe? Night Slash…. [Gyarados vanished] Now they are only mine.
Darkrai moved towards the Spiritual Pool.
Meanwhile, At the Final Island, Meloetta wanted to release themselves but she couldn’t. She tried everything etcetera she knew nonetheless all in vain. She heard, “Meloetta, the same I am telling you, Look inside of you, you have the melody to provoke the inner spirit. Do this to stop Darkrai. Do this, Meloetta.” Then just like Pikachu, Meloetta began to glow too. Around her body, melody symbols appeared and began to wander and with her melody power, she provoked the spiritual energy around herself. With her melody power, she released Victini and moved towards her. Victini wasn’t breathing. It seemed like she had passed away but Meloetta knew a way to revive her back. She took her to the Whirlpool Triangle – the source of everything. She wanted Arceus to revive Victini.
In the meantime, Pikachu arrived at the North only to see the destruction of the Icinia. He saw the Guards and whole city under darkness.
Pikachu – What has happened here? Such dark atmosphere….Darkrai! He must have arrived here to get the Jewel of Prosperity. I have to hurry.
Suddenly, there came thunderous clouds everywhere, purple lightning and dark clouds, ominous storm and the sea wanted to meet the sky. Zekrom and Kyurem appeared there in the sky battling with each other.
Zekrom – Kyurem, Control the darkness inside of you.
Kyurem – I am the heir to the throne of Dragons. I am the supreme ruler of the world.
Zekrom – Kyurem!
Kyurem – I gave you time but you failed to come within the time as you mentioned in the bond. So Pay for that. I’ll end you this time.
Kyurem was strong. Zekrom couldn’t stand a chance against him. Meanwhile, Lucario and Weavile brought Xatu at the Spiritual Pool –
Weavile – Is this the Spiritual Pool?
Lucario – How beautiful this place is! Full of spiritual energy and…
Weavile – I feel some sort of Alpha energy…Like the one that I felt at Relic Ruins…
Lucario – At the Luminous Spring…
Weavile – Lucario, look. There’s something in the pool. Something glowing….
Lucario – Isn’t it the Jewel of Prosperity? Is it?
Weavile – I don’t think so. Let’s restore the memories of Xatu.
Lucario – Yay!
Then they laid Xatu in the Spiritual Pool. The water around him turned dark blue and began to glow. He was getting his memories back. He saw in himself, another Xatu…
Xatu – Who are you?
Blue Xatu – I’m you.
Xatu – Who am I?
Blue Xatu – You are the Psychic bird – the head of intelligence of the Poke World. The one who struggled to gain knowledge…
Xatu – Me?
Blue Xatu – Yes. You have to regain connection with yourself.
Xatu – How can I regain my connection?
Blue Xatu – In order to reestablish the connection, you have to know the journey of your life. The duty you have served for the Pokémons. Return to the beginnings…
Meanwhile, Pikachu was moving towards the Spiritual Pool. Zekrom and Kyurem were battling for nothing. Meloetta took Victini to the Whirlpool Triangle. Suddenly, Darkrai arrived at the Spiritual Pool-
Darkrai – So you are already here.
Lucario – Darkrai!
Darkrai – Yes. And I’ll end you all right here. The Spiritual Pool will be your burial.
Weavile – We will never let you hurt Xatu
Darkrai – Then let it begin.
Darkrai attacked Lucario and Weavile.
Will Pikachu succeed in his plan? Will Xatu get back his memories or Darkrai will succeed in his evil scheme? There’s a dozen of question. To know the answer watch the next 3 hour special episode of Pokémon: Weavile and the Five Jewels.
CHAPTER 19: MEMORIES RETURNED
Previously: Pikachu lost his hope and then provoked by a mysterious voice and got the Jewels and ran to the North – Darkrai defeated Dialga and Palkia and arrived at the Spiritual Pool where he faced Lucario and Weavile who were there to restore the memories of Xatu – Zekrom and Kyurem were battling there in the sky – Meloetta was trying to revive back Victini.
Now: Darkrai – Lucario, you cannot win. This time, I’ll end the tale of Xatu forever.
Lucario – You cannot until we are here.
Darkrai – So you wish.
Darkrai attacked Lucario and Weavile altogether. Both were injured. Darkrai moved towards Xatu to end him. Meanwhile, Pikachu arrived at the Palace of Gyarados where he met the soldiers. He asked them what had happened there. They told him that Darkrai had arrived at the Spiritual Pool. Pikachu was surprised and he hurried to the Spiritual Pool. Back at the Spiritual Pool, Darkrai stood beside Xatu and said, “Now this is your end. Say goodbye to this world.” Meanwhile, in the Xatu’s Vision, Blue Xatu took him back to his childhood when he was just a Natu.
Natu – Mom, I want more.
Natu’s mom – Here take his, my dear.
Natu’s dad – Don’t give him. His stomach will, then, be disturb.
Xatu – Is that me?
Blue Xatu – Yes, he is you and there are your parents. You and your family lived on the Hill of Ancients where Aerodactyl and many others accompanied you. But….
Xatu – But?
Blue Xatu then took him after 5 years when he grew up.
Xatu – What happened to the Sun? It’s black.
Blue Xatu – It’s not black. It’s an eclipse.
Xatu – What does it has with me and my family?
Blue Xatu – Look there.
Xatu saw a large dark creature and a robot like Pokémon battling. He asked Blue Xatu about that.
Blue Xatu – That large dark creature is Darkrai – The Source of Evil and Chaos. And another is Mewtwo – Sister of Mew. Mewtwo is trying to protect your tribe from Darkrai…
Xatu – But Why?
Blue Xatu – Darkrai wanted to get control over the Universe but the only thing was that he didn’t knew the location of Forge of Creation.
Xatu – What is Forge of Creation?
Blue Xatu – Forge of Creation is the framework of the Universe which contains the energy. It is the place where Arceus – the Creator of the Universe is.
Xatu – What is the connection between the Forge and me?
Blue Xatu – You being the Psychic bird are the only one who could seal the Portal in the Final Island.
Xatu – Who is that?
Blue Xatu – This is you – fighting against Darkrai to protect your family. But….
Blue Xatu increased the flow of time and then they saw that Darkrai ended the whole tribe. Mewtwo saved Xatu and ran away. Darkrai turned his attention to the Grand Canyon. However, Mew saved everyone by sealing him in the Dark Isle along with the dark forces. Xatu began to live on the Hill of Ancients which later came to be known as the Xatu Hill. Xatu regained all his memories of childhood and how Darkrai ended his tribe but still he didn’t know the present situation. Meanwhile, Pikachu arrived at the Spiritual Pool where he saw Lucario and Weavile down and Darkrai moving towards Xatu. Pikachu used Electro Ball and saved Xatu.
Pikachu – Stop, Darkrai. You are over.
Darkrai – How did you escape?
Pikachu – Not even the death could stop me to contain you.
Darkrai – Anyways, I will end you both right here but before ending you, I shall end this.
Darkrai turned towards Xatu but Pikachu said, “Are you sure? I have something of yours and I’m sure you need it.” Darkrai turned back and became surprised to see the Four Jewels in the hand of Pikachu.
Darkrai – How dare you to steal my Jewels? I’ll end you.
Pikachu – Maybe? If you won’t need these.
Darkrai – No, don’t.
Pikachu – Then spare all others and go away from here.
Darkrai began to devise a new plan to turn the situation in his favor. Meanwhile, Blue Xatu showed Xatu that –
Blue Xatu – Look at this world. This is Poke World where all of you lived together in peace and harmony. Do you remember what this is?
Xatu – I remember now, this is the Pokémon Federation which Mew and I built after the Dark Light War between Darkrai and us.
Blue Xatu – Exactly. But now, situation has become worse than ever.
Xatu – What do you mean?
Blue Xatu took him to the present world where Xatu saw his own body at the Spiritual Pool. He saw the same dark creature and a yellow mouse like Pokémon with some sort of gems.
Xatu – Who are they? I remember now, the dark creature is Darkrai and that is Pikachu – my friend.
Blue Xatu – Yes. Pikachu is trying to protect you and stop Darkrai. Look there, he is you in the pool and those are Weavile and Lucario who fainted protecting you.
Xatu – O! No. What should I do now?
Blue Xatu – Just answer my simple questions. You’ll get your answer.
Xatu – Ask.
Blue Xatu – Who are you?
Xatu – I am Xatu – the Psychic bird and the only one who could close the Portal in the Final Island.
Blue Xatu – Do you know your duty?
Xatu – I have to help Pikachu to stop Darkrai and protect the Universe.
Blue Xatu – Now, you have regained your connection with your spirit. We can merge now.
Then Blue Xatu entered into the body of Xatu. Meanwhile, At the Spiritual Pool, Xatu woke up suddenly, taking a long and deep breath.
Darkrai – Just give me the Jewels or I’ll eliminate your friend.
Xatu – May I know whom you want to eliminate?
Darkrai – You…How you regained your memories?
Xatu – My memories have returned and it’s payback time.
Pikachu – I’m so glad that you’re okay.
Xatu – Darkrai, you are over.
Darkrai – Xatu, how could you forget that I am Darkrai?
Xatu – What do you mean?
Darkrai – I have already a backup. Sableye army is going to invade and raid this place in an hour.
Everyone was shocked. Lucario and Weavile woke up. Suddenly, Darkrai used double team and attacked Xatu and Pikachu.
Darkrai – I know how to defeat you. This time, I’ll end you permanently.
Xatu – Dozens of time you have said so. Speaking is much easier than doing.
Darkrai – Do you think I am just speaking? Although you have regained your connection still you don’t know the fact.
Xatu – What?
Darkrai – Don’t pretend. Have you forgotten that I ended your whole tribe?
Pikachu was shocked. Xatu – No. Do you know why I was saved?
Darkrai – Yes. Because, it’s written in your fate that you shall be ended by me.
Darkrai used his exclusive move and defeated Pikachu and Xatu. Xatu stood up and attacked Darkrai. They battled for some time but unfortunately, Darkrai emerged as victor. He absorbed the energy of Xatu and stole the Jewels. Pikachu and others were defeated.
Darkrai – You, four are destined to witness the end of the world. With the energy of these Jewels – The Jewel of Life, The Jewel of Energy, The Jewel of Nature and the Jewel of Evolution – I hereby calls you, The Jewel of Prosperity, reveal yourself. Come out of the lake.
Xatu – No!
Then light began to glow at the center of the pool. Something was coming up. The water began to jump and then an emblem came out the lake. The energy was unleashed towards the periphery of the world. With a huge wave, everything flowed away. Darkrai saw the Jewel of Prosperity at the emblem. He took the Jewel and then, another wave of energy went through the Universe awakening Arceus. Arceus was enraged and then he said, “Darkrai, that’s enough. You shall be brought to Justice.” Then Arceus went towards the Spiritual Pool. Meanwhile, back at the Pool, Pikachu and others stood up somehow. Darkrai was laughing.
Darkrai – Look, Xatu, I told you none can defeat me. And with these five Jewels, I will unleash the Spirit of Sky and Spirit of Forest.
Xatu – So that was your plan.
Darkrai – Yes. I had this plan for so long time but I was waiting for a right moment.
Pikachu – But why you want to release them?
Darkrai – You’ll know it when they’ll be released.
Arceus – Do you think you are going to do that?
Everyone was surprised. They saw up in the sky.
Pikachu – Arceus!
Meanwhile, at the Spacial Rift, Palkia told Dialga that Arceus had arrived in the Poke World. Kyurem and Zekrom stopped battling.
Zekrom – Arceus has arrived. Kyurem, stop this.
Kyurem – I can feel his rage. He is… really… infuriated….
Back at the Pool,
Arceus – Darkrai, you have stubbornly refused to give up. You have left me no choice but to end you.
Darkrai – Do you think you can? I have the Five Jewels.
Arceus – Actually, I am the five Jewels. The five Jewels are the part of me. You cannot defeat me…Take this….Judgment!
It was just like Meteor Shower. The whole place was something destroyed within minutes. Arceus – You must be brought to Justice.
Darkrai – O! Really.
Darkrai then smiled and both of them came on the land. They were battling continuously, due to which the whole place was destroying. Pikachu couldn’t see that. He interfered. Arceus and Darkrai stood opposite to each other. Pikachu came in between.
Arceus – I remember you. You are the thunder Warrior you saved me and protected the world from this Darkrai and Zekrom.
Pikachu – Yes and I request you to stop this. Look everywhere. Everything is destroying.
Darkrai – This is all to be destroyed.
Pikachu – Shut up! Darkrai. Lord Arceus, I know you are enraged but please, ending Darkrai won’t end this war. We need to restore Peace to the world and bring Darkrai to his rightful place.
Darkrai – What do you mean?
Pikachu – I meant that you must be punished for your heinous sin that you committed by spreading war and slaying other Pokémons.
Arceus – Those you didn’t created, you have no right to take their lives.
Darkrai – Don’t give me orders. Pikachu and Arceus, do you think I will follow you?
Pikachu – I don’t think but…
Xatu – We know that you didn’t ear to our words but we have just hope to change you. Just try to remember your old memories.
Darkrai – What?
Pikachu – Sometimes, it works to recall the past so that we could move towards a bright future.
Darkrai – Just shut up. I am not going to obey your commands. This world is mine only. I am the Evil King Darkrai.
Arceus – I knew that you won’t change either. I have to end you once and for all.
Darkrai smiled again and then Arceus attacked him with his Judgment but unfortunately, Darkrai used the Five Jewels and absorbed Arceus into them.
Everyone was shocked. Even Zekrom and Kyurem forgot their own battle and arrived there to save him but it was too late then.
Darkrai – Muahahaha…I won once again. I ended Arceus right before your eyes.
Xatu – Ar…ce…us…
Pikachu – No. He is not died yet.
Pikachu was enraged. The same voice came once again, “Pikachu, Arceus hasn’t ended yet.”
Pikachu’s body began to glow and then he attacked Darkrai but Darkrai vanished. Xatu calmed Pikachu down but they didn’t know what was to occur next. They had no idea. Lucario and Weavile came there and joined them in sorrow.
Kyurem – It’s all because of me. I was just selfish, I didn’t see the danger to the world. I just wanted to secure my throne. I could have saved him.
Zekrom – Yes, it’s all because of you.
Pikachu – Stop, fighting. You still didn’t get a lesson. Here we don’t know how to stop Darkrai. We don’t know where Final Island is. We don’t know what to do next. Who will help us now?
Xatu – Pikachu, pacify yourself.
Pikachu – You said right. I need to calm down the storm in me before calming down the world.
Xatu – This Spiritual Pool is the source of all Spiritual Energy. I think if we could meditate here, we could contact with Gardevoir.
Pikachu – Gardevoir?
Xatu – Did you forget? She was the first to defeat Darkrai only with her physical powers. She didn’t use her supernatural powers.
Pikachu – I would like to contact with Grovyle and Mew.
Xatu –I think Gardevoir along with them could help us.
Pikachu –Then let it begin.
Pikachu and Xatu sat nearby the emblem at the center of the lake meditating to meet Gardevoir, Mew and Grovyle. Meloetta and Victini’s whereabouts was still not known. Darkrai vanished and Arceus was entrapped in his own Five Jewels.
Will Pikachu and Xatu succeed in defeating Darkrai? Will Darkrai succeed in releasing the Spirits? Are Meloetta and Victini safe?
