Welcome

Our old universe has
fallen into impossible chaos and destruction, but the Legendaries will save us; are saving us; have saved us. Soon many lives and memories will fill this new world, and give it purpose.

Events

Terrene continues to heat
up, both in temperature and in conflict. Beta is asking for spies to infiltrate Omega's camp, while Dentelle simply wants to inquire after the scientist's progress. Later in the season, Beta is hosting his annual crater city tournament, where people can test their Pokemon and their leadership and strategies against one another.

Season

Summer will be here until
September. The heat of summer is here in full force, as well as the accompanying summer thunderstorms. Bug, electric, and fire types all thrive while others wilt under these conditions.

"How did this happen?" that was but one of the thoughts ringing in Andy head at this time as he took stock of his current predicament. Nothing but ice in his town where people had been thriving just 3 days before. his parents now long gone due to the massive global cooling even that struck not only his town but the entire world. The whole area blanketed with snow and ice all over sounded like a picturesque Christmas card one would send to ones parents on any other day.

It had happened so fast as well, 3 crazed whose pokemon were driven feral by the abrupt lack of food, while Bob and Martha did have pokemon on them,they either flash froze due to the subsero temps (only fire, ice and pokemon with certain abilites like Thick Fat possibly avoided this) or were mauled by the any of the 3 humans 15 ice types. Several ice spears, avalanches and blizzards later left their Arcanine and Walrein fainted; they didnt stop there, carving up the two mons like one does a turkey. The same thing happening to the parents 2 minutes later at the claws of a Weavile.


I couldnt even save her the 'her' being his poke-friend Azurill, the little blue mouse getting him through the beginnings of this soon to be Ice Age, usually bouncing around the house to keep him occupied and not so fixated on the impending doom. Maybe she didnt know due to being a baby, maybe she did and just wanted the boy to enjoy himself till the end, either way they didnt care too much about her after dispatching his parents,the Weavile being returned for now in lieu of a mamoswine that did he was taught was impossible given these were trained pokemon-- firing icicle spears at him directly. He was able to get Aqua out of the way of this at the cost of bodily harm to himself while Aqua tired a water gun of her own which subsequently flash froze rendering that attack useless. Andy lay bleeding in a bit of pain as the little baby gets butchered; her squeaky high pitched squeal being the last thing he hears of her.


After that squeal...nothing, silence the only bit of her left behind being the floatation tail, the mons and humans gone as fast as they came leaving a brokenhearted Andy crying tiny tears of ice in mourning for his decimated family as he waited for the end.

Despite his expectations, it wasn't the end that came to Andy as he waited in the wake of disaster, but a new beginning.

It happened suddenly. The world around him brightened, the air glowing with a light that seemed to not have a source. It was a golden light, warm in hue but not in temperature and was, actually, unexpectedly, gave the air around her a crispness and stillness, a chilly goosebump-inducing sensation on his skin and a metallic tang on his tongue and throat and nostrils. From beneath his feet, saffron mist rose out of the earth, climbing and clinging purposefully to his body.

All this happened within a mere handful of seconds; then, a wind picked up, a hot wind, moistened by the mist that it picked up as it swirled around him. It pressed in on him, and yet not a hair on his head nor an inch of his clothing was blown about or even so much as mildly displaced by the gale. And yet, he'd feel its pressure, and then an intense sensation of dizziness and vertigo as suddenly a blinding light flashed and the wind increased to impossible speeds.

And then, there was nothing. The cessation all the sensations was likely as disorienting as the sensations themselves had been; but only a heartbeat after the flash of light, everything was gone.

As his vision returned to him, Andy would find himself standing on a small square of marble flooring, perhaps a few square feet in size. It was smooth and slightly glossy and a classic, but not too eye-catching, grey color. At each corner of the square marble platform, a pillar a touch over twice his height stood, beautifully and perfectly carved. To the left and to the right of him, walls that were identical to the floors stretched between the pillars. At his feet, settled onto the marble, was the same golden, glowing, shimmering mist from before. But above him, ahead of him, and behind him, there was nothing but untouched, deep, absolute blackness. An impenetrable void of opaque nothingness.

you are safe,

A disembodied voice that seemed to come from the air itself spoke out, its tone heavy with near-palpable exhaustion. The air around Andy seemed to bend deeply beneath the weight of the voice, and it felt as though time slowed while the voice was speaking. It was as if this odd reality- if it could be called a reality- surrounding the human was taking a deep, deliberate breath, inhaling and exhaling. If the boy was attuned to and aware of his new environment, the sensation of heavy eyelids and weary limbs would enter him and soak into his bones for a long moment. Then the sensation would pass, and time would seem to regain its normal speed and air would regain its normal weight.

At the same time the voice spoke and everything became heavy and exhausting, the mists rolled out before and behind Andy, spreading out into the void. Anywhere the mist touched the blackness, ground and environment was formed- but what formed ahead of him and what formed behind him were two completely different scenes.

Ahead of him formed a scene that was calm and almost familiar, in a comforting sort of way. It invoked the sort of feeling that one feels when they smell a scent that reminds them of a favorite childhood memory. Despite the odd feelings of comfort and familiarity that were evoked, the environment that formed seemed fantastical and exaggerated. The first thing noticeable was the grass- if it could be called such. At first it seemed like normal grass, except that it was in a rainbow of greens. From the purest malachite green, to the deepest darkest midnight green that seemed almost black, to the lightest palest artichoke green that seemed almost gray. The colors were mesmerizing, but it wasn't the only odd thing about the grass. Beyond the fantastic and varied coloring, the grass, once formed, continued to grow before Andy's very eyes. It wasn't growing at breakneck speeds, by any means, and depending on how observant Andy was, he might notice it right away or he might not notice it for a few minutes. It grew at a rate of approximately one centimeter every five seconds or so. It was quick enough that one could literally watch the grass grow, but not so quick that it would reach ludicrous heights anytime soon.

The grass grew on what seemed to be a hill that sloped gently downward. This angle of the ground allowed Andy to see some of what lay beyond: it seemed that there were buildings at the bottom of the hill. There were too few buildings for it to be a city or town waiting for him down there, and the details of the buildings couldn't be discerned from this distance; he would have to get closer in order to investigate.

Fortunately for Andy, a path was formed that would lead him from his current location on the marble platform down the hill and toward the buildings below. It was a curious path. The texture of it was reminiscent of sand, except that the "grains" were somewhat larger than one would expect from sand. Beyond that, if Andy cared to lean down and touch it, he would find that it felt almost like tiny shredded pieces of parchment or some other type of brittle paper, which made it seem as though it wasn't any kind of sand at all, but confetti. In color, it was a pale and pastel mint, but it was arranged in designs, similar to sand bottle art. The designs were small, repeating patterns of lines and circles that were the same material, but in colors of light pinks and yellows.

The path wound easily down the hill, being neither too direct nor too indirect, descending at a relaxing angle. On one side of the path there was a simple handrail provided, clean and white and simple, seeming to be made of plastic. It was unobtrusive, but it was there if Andy needed or wanted it, though that was unlikely given how easy the path was.

Above this entire pleasant scene, the glittering golden mist hung, providing gentle and even light for Andy to maneuver and see with.

Behind Andy, however, formed an entirely different scene that held nothing in common with the environment before him.

A steep mountainside greeted him if he cared to look behind him, a mountainside that was unnaturally and completely devoid of all soil and plant-life, which was quite opposite of the other direction. Jutting out of the mountainside here and there were what appeared to be tall but thin shards of glass, sharp and threatening. If Andy cared to look closer, he would see that they were mirror fragments, and that their edges were indeed sharp enough to cut through his skin. And even more than that, where the shattered mirror pieces pierced into the mountainside, the mountain seemed to leak frozen air, chilling the entire area to an uncomfortably low temperature.

There was next to no light in this environment. It was far from pitch-black but it was definitely dim enough to make it difficult to see details and colors. Rather than hanging overhead and providing pleasant light as it did in the other direction, here the shimmering mist was sucked into the mountainside wherever the glass pierced it.

There was no defined path on this side of the marble platform that Andy stood on, so if he chose to proceed in this direction, he'd have to make it up as he went. Additionally, if he tried to progress up the mountainside, he would find that traction was a hard thing to come by. Not only was the mountainside steep, but it was unnaturally slick. Handholds and footholds were few and far between, but they were there, if Andy ended up deciding to force his way up the mountainside rather than taking the pleasant route on the other side.

you must choose your path,

The voice commanded, the tone significantly more quiet and distant than the first time it had spoke. Thus Andy was left alone with his two choices; would he move forward... or backward?

@mdebourg


Welcome to the void between universes. Arceus will guide Andy through a series of diverging paths, with each path's environment symbolically representing a particular choice. In this first scenario, Arceus will see if Andy will choose the difficult path or the easy path, the challenge or the relief. If he chooses the difficult path, his starter Pokemon will be one that Arceus believes is opposite of Andy, one that will provide a challenge at every turn. If he chooses the easy path, his starter Pokemon will be one that Arceus believes is similar to Andy, one that will provide support and validation. After this choice, though, you won't get an explanation of what the paths, the choices, represent! Have fun!

As he waited for the inevitable, he did feel the air go still, eerily still only to pick up again seconds later as it swirled around him, an air that felt like fire, brimstone, and being crushed all at the same time. He wanted to scream as this happened but his voice wouldn't come to him. There was also that yellowish mist that clung to his body, just what was going on here?


That would sort of be answered by some voice that sounded to him like it was everywhere but locating the source of it was impossible as he tried doing when he could see again.


"You are safe"


"Least theres that...but where in the pecha berry am I?" he wondereded choosing to keep his thoughts to himself for the moment after regaining his composure and recovering from a bout sudden weariness in a minute or two.


It was then the two paths appeared, the one he viewed being the .colorful scene that pretty much mimiced the many beautiful colors of the rainbow. Heading a bit down the path for now, he did lean down to touch the sand which felt different the moment he let it run thru his fingers, not that he minded in the slightest due to overall wonder of the path he was looking at. It brought images of his parents and his little pokemon just relaxing on the beach, almost like where he met her. Next he turned his head to the grass, he didnt catch this for a minute but when he did..."Wow, its like nature coming alive before my eyes." he wisphered to himself.


That pressure came again for a split second causing him to turn to vista behind him, this being nowhere near as pleasent, in fact it was just plain dreary, "I really dont want to go back there" the sadnenss of the mountainside just didnt seem as ppealing to this nature lover and so he went into the rainbow of colored grass not giving that mountainside a second glance.

keep going,

It was hard to tell if the voice was speaking instructions or if it was speaking encouragement, but either way, the statement stood, ushering Andy further down the hill of his chosen path.

As he got closer to the bottom of the hill and to the buildings there, the structure and detail of the buildings would become clearer and clearer. There were three buildings, each one distinctly different from the other two.

The building that was furthest to the left was the tallest of the three. The material that it was made from was hard to place; it was a deep green color, and almost soft to the touch. It was also very textured, feeling bumpy and veiny to the touch. The shape of the building made it seem as though it had grown out of the ground like a tree, or rose out of it like a mountain. It's base was tapered outward, and was wider than its middle. The top of the building also expanded outward, and it seemed to separate into many distinct decorative protrusions, which all curved and tapered to a point. They almost looked like fingers and fingernails, delicately growing out of the top of the intriguing building. Half of the protrusions faded from the deep emerald green to a pleasant pale pink hue at their tapered ends, providing for some colorful contrast.

It held no windows or doors. It did have a large open archway that functioned as its entrance. The walls of the building sat directly on the ground; there was no floor built in, so even if Andy chose to walk into this building, he would still be walking on the ground.

The building in the center was the smallest of the three buildings by far, but also the most colored and textured. It was dome-shaped, and appeared to be built entirely of tiny circular windows stacked all on top of each other and bound together with white mortar or grout, almost like how a child might build up a building out of a bunch of cylindrical blocks. The glass in all of the windows was tinted a pale green that was almost yellow-green. The glass was imperfect and uneven, such that it distorted the image of whatever was inside, so the windows couldn't be used to look through to the inside.

The doorway was small, just barely tall and wide enough for Andy to be able to fit through without having to duck or sidle in sideways. The door itself was more of a curtain to be pulled aside. The curtain seemed to be made of parchment that was a pale yellow-green color, and it would crinkle if Andy chose to push it aside in order to enter this building.

The building on the right was the plainest of the buildings, although that made it stand out in its own right. In size, it was somewhere between the other two buildings. It was perfectly square, and it was a gradient of grays, starting black at the base and fading all the way to white at the top. The material it was made from was unknown, but it was absolutely smooth and seamless. It had two classic square windows on each side of it, placed just a bit too high for Andy to see through.

The door of this building was a classic door in structure, though it looked as though it was made of polished marble, including the doorknob.

The pathway he was following along on ended without taking Andy to any of the buildings; it was clear he would have to make a choice here. In all three of the buildings, the interior was not lit, so it was impossible to tell what was within until Andy chose a building to enter.

Andy did continue down the path of colors and confetti like sand, though he did so at a leisurely pace, he didnt want to exactly rush through a vista such as what he saw here. Making his way down the hill he came across the three buildings. "Another set of choices huh?" he mused looking at each building starting from the left. The building looming over him like a mansion of sorts due to the height, he then headed over to it "I guess i can go around these three buildings before I actually go into one...Right?" feeling the almost grassy nature of the walls before looking up and realizing that it was in fact a tree . "Least that explains why it's so big".


The next house he looks at being the cylindrical one in the center, unlike the 'treehouse' its very small, "Heh whoever made this must enjoy putting stuff together for the sake of fun, nothing wrong with that.." giving a bit of a laugh at the innocence of the design that resembled an uncoiled spring to Andy . The uneven windows giving the impression of those goofy funhouse mirrors one sees at carnivals.


The house to the right looked the most structurally sound, but also plain "I don't think my parents would be caught in this kind of house...would they?" that detail of his house before the calamity seeming to disappear all of a sudden in a puff of smoke, which scared him a bit ""Please let that be something making me forget that and not due to me having memory problems" now looking down at his hand to make sure he still he had Aqua's tailpiece, he wanted to forget that event but not her or his parents. The little mental block drew him back to the tall house shaped like a tree as he entered it.

The first few moments after Andy stepped inside his building of choice, the tallest and broadest of the three, his eyes needed a moment to adjust. Soon enough, the glowing mist began creeping in after him through the doorway, floating up to line the ceiling of the building, illuminating everything below.

The floor of this building was no floor at all; it was just flattened, packed dirt, moist enough that it wasn't kicked up in clouds of dust when Andy stepped, but dry enough that it didn't become mud and cling to Andy's shoes.

The interior of the building was similar to the exterior, although not identical. Just as it was on the outside, the inside was entirely of a deep green color, just a few shades lighter than it was on the outside. It was bare on the inside and had visible scaffolding that lined it. Various tall stalks ran vertically long the walls. At the thinnest section of the construction, the stalks parted from the walls that they lined and came together in the center, forming a vaguely conical ceiling above him.

But what wasn't similar to the exterior, was the actual layout of it. On the outside, it had looked like a simple, likely one-room or two-room building, despite it's unusual shape and material. After Andy's eyes adjusted to the slightly dimmer light on the inside, however, he would see that there was a lot more to it than had met the eye from the outside.

There were three potential directions for Andy to move in. The first was straight ahead, a wide hallway that was essentially identical to this main room he was standing in. It had a lot of space, the floor was packed dirt, and the walls were the same beautiful deep green with the poles running along them. It seemed to extend quite far, despite the fact that the building hadn't looked so long from the outside. The only difference between this hallway and the main room of the building were small decorative spheres that were embedded into the ground, outlining a pathway for Andy to follow. The spheres were not perfectly spherical, though it was hard to tell because they were small. The exact sizes varied, being anywhere from a couple of centimeters to an inch in diameter. In color, they were various shades of green, as seemed to be the obvious theme here. There seemed to be no pattern, no rhyme or reason to their sizes or colors. At the far side of the hallway there was another archway that seemed to be identical to the one he had entered from, but from this distance he could not tell what was on the other side of that archway.

Interestingly, there was a second archway in that same direction, but it wasn't on the floor. It was built into the wall above the first archway. It wasn't clear at first how Andy could possibly access that door. But if he spared a moment for searching, Andy would figure it out. To his left there was a thin staircase, very simple, and made of the same green, rough material that the building's walls were made of. It had railings that were identical to the stalks that held up the walls as well. The staircase led up to a thin walkway up above, which ran in the same direction that the hallway did. And that walkway led directly to that second archway at the end of the hallway, that was built into the wall above the one on ground-level.

The third direction that he could choose to go in was a second hallway that was an offshoot from the first, which even further defied the building's outward shape that Andy had observed. It began with an archway the same as all the other archways in the building, in the right wall at the beginning of the main hallway. If he cared to look down it, he would see that this second hallway wasn't as wide as the main one, being about half its width. There was definitely still enough room for Andy to walk around and be comfortable, however. Another different in this hallway was that it did not have the asymmetrical marbles lining the path, but instead had tiny strings or wires of gold on either side of the path, attached to which were perfectly symmetrical lights every seven feet. The lights were shaped like elongated stars, and glowed only very softly, being more for beauty than utility. At the end of this hallway there was an archway that led out, just like the archway at the end of the first main hallway. And just like that other archway, whatever was on the other side of this one could not be discerned from this distance.

The voice spoke to Andy once more as he reached this crossroad, sounding more tired and more far away than ever:

you are nearly there,

"This is an entirely different building than I expected." he thought as he stepped into the treehouse, after taking a moment to eye his surroundings, and getting used to the dimmer lighting. he would obverse the three paths laid before him.

The first being the path straight ahead that was that same deep green color with poles being visible along the wall."Quite a long hallway" he noted before seeing a few of those spheres of many shapes and colors, just what exactly were those spheres anyway? A moment of pondering later and he brought his attention to the 2nd path
.

"How am i supposed to get there?" was his first thought after looking at how it seemed to be built into the wall of the 1st path, how that was managed Andy would never figure out. What he did eventually figure out though with closer inspection, is that there was a very thin stairwell? If you could call it that anyway, regardless, it allowed him to let least access this 2nd floor which interestingly enough led to another door, though he couldn't quite see that.

The 3rd way being off to the right, this one being a little narrow but still large for Andy to go through , he also soon noticed strings or little golden stars along the entire path. "Quite the pretty hallway" he mumbled a bit enjoying the artsy feel of the path before turning around and heads to the 2nd paths archway, the one that the staircase was needed to access.

The second floor's catwalk seemed to sway ever so slightly beneath his weight, but it never threatened to fracture or fall, supporting him perfectly all the way to the end of the hallway where the exit awaited him. Arriving at the archway and passing through it, he would find himself outside, but in a place entirely different from the place he had been in before he had entered the building. There was no multicolored grass, no gently sloping hills, no other buildings... there was nothing. It was impenetrable blackness like he had seen when he had first been pushed out of his old world.

So where was he supposed to go from here? He wouldn't get much of a chance to think on it, because suddenly, things were happening.

A fierce, powerful wind blew in a whirlwind about him, pushing in on him from all sides, the wind seemingly completely undeterred by the huge columns that still surrounded him. The golden mist suddenly flooded in from all directions, pressing in on his feet and then crawling up his body. As it ascended, its glow increased exponentially until it was nearly blinding. Vertigo overwhelmed him as everything around him suddenly fell into inky blackness, even the ground beneath his feet; in an instant there was no up and no down, no orientation at all, just wind and light.

Then there was a positively blinding flash and a final gale of wind and heat. Then nothing. No, actually, not nothing. Momentary silence, yes, but in the distance birds resumed their chirping and various unseen rodents resumed their scuttling and snuffling as they moved on from the sudden interruption that wasn't actually all that uncommon in this particular area. When vision returned to him, the boy would find himself in a clearing with ashen dirt beneath his feet. Carved totems and statues stood as sentinels in a wide half-circle to his right, his left, and behind him. Ahead of him sprawled a wooden city at the end of an unassuming, trodden dirt path.

@mdebourg



Andy chose the easy path, prompting Arceus to select a Pokemon that he felt was a kindred spirit to Andy, one of a similar personality and mindset, who would support and encourage him.

Pokemon of this type are typically friendly, helpful, gentle, patient, and nurturing. Though they are somewhat less inquisitive than Andy is, generally preferring to build up a home and lay down roots, so to speak, they will match well with his optimistic and companionable nature. Their caring and family-oriented nature might prove helpful to the naive young boy separated from his family.

This Pokemon species in particular are especially friendly, eager to share anything they have with their friends and family. Andy's companion will surely prove to be a great friend and helper to him.


Andy has obtained a Pansage!

Chose a gender

Choose an egg move

Choose an ability

Choose a name
{the name can be put off until later if you so desire}


[ This topic has ended, but you may resume the adventure in Ashfield. From now on, the Pansage is yours and is under your creative control. The die roll for the chance to have a Pokedex resulted in 25, so Andy does not start with a Pokedex. Send me a PM when you've made the necessary decisions regarding your new Pokemon. Good luck and have fun! ]
