The Human Species by RingsOfSaturn


Story Notes:

It was a quiet night when Deoxys descended from the heavens.
Believed to not be of this world, it went on a rampage, leaving death and destruction in its wake.
Finally defeated by an unknown force, the tragedy of unparalleled magnitude it created remains in the heart of every human.
To make sure that something like this will never happen again, every wild Pokèmon powerful enough to cause such mayhem must be captured, controlled or killed.
Needless to say, this year has been a bad year for Legendaries. This year has also been a bad year for Champion Trainers.
But my year... Has been... THE WORST! 

Author's Chapter Notes:


Prologue of Year 11

We interrupt tonight's scheduled programming of Lonesome Wanderer Lucario with this special report. We apologize for any inconvenience, and please refer to the TV guide for further information regarding this change.

War? In this day and age? It is more likely than you think! As tensions rise between humans and Pokémon, many officials have requested that the people should prepare themselves, in case the worst comes to happen. This instructional video will teach you the ins and outs of war, so you can stop worrying over nothing and carry on as a helpful and comfortable part of society.

First of all, what is the war about? On the 8th of March, a large task force of organized Pokémon entered Celadon City in the Kanto region with hostile intentions. The group was led by the revolutionist Zoroark, a Pokémon of a previously unexplored species, believed to have committed similar attacks against humanity in the past.

The Pokémon defeated anyone who stood in their way as they infiltrated a nearby Game Corner, where they discovered a hidden underground base. Little is known of what transpired in the abandoned cellar, but when the Pokémon came back out, they were out of control and furious. Causing a rampage unlike anything ever seen before, their leader Zoroark broke into the local broadcasting station and took hostages, demanding that a tape they had found in the abandoned base would be shown to the public.

The Tape will not be shown in this special report due to its gruesome nature and enraging effects upon Pokémon. The Tape detailed a series of unethical experiments conducted on Pokémon by a currently unknown organization. The segment including the disembowelment of a pregnant Kangaskhan contained roars that, when translated, warns other Pokémon of the Containment Force (Act 112-119, subjugation of powerful Pokémon). Related notes found during the Game Corner infiltration show that the Pokémon featured in the Tape were all captured targets of the Containment Force, and only a fraction of those whose whereabouts are currently unknown.

Before congress had any chance of conducting an investigation in order to rectify this mistake, Pokémon in the Kanto region began to rise against their trainers in order to spread the word of what they refer to as "treachery". Zoroark continued broadcasting as the rest of his task force defeated the local police force. After that, they began driving humans out from the city and their homes, demanding respite from humanity and proclaiming it to be their new safe haven, naming it "No Man's Land". Zoroark stated that Pokémon that now feel threatened by humans are welcome to live there, and that he will protect and give shelter to all.

As word of this reached the rest of the world, strong wild Pokémon liable under the Containment Force began traveling towards No Man's Land in fear of their own demise at the hands of vicious experiments. Many already owned Pokémon also joined the revolution in protest to the inhuman actions, abandoning their trainers in the process. The Pokémon living on the outskirts of Celadon City were invited in while even more Pokémon following Zoroark headed towards their leader's location.

By the time the police's reinforcements had arrived, the force of enraged wild Pokémon had multiplied, and expanded too much to handle. They were quickly beaten back, many of the police's own Pokémon turning against them and joining the revolution. More and more capable trainers were sent out to handle the situation, but were all defeated by the overwhelming number and strength of the Pokémon in No Man's Land.

Many of the previous inhabitants of Celadon City hastily built shelters in the nearby cities, and demand to be let back into their homes. Zoroark, elected to represent the Pokémon of No Man's Land, has given a list of demands to their surrender, containing the abolishment of the Containment Force and forcing several new laws regarding the treatment of Pokémon.

Until this matter has been resolved, there is no telling what the future might hold in store for us. But even so, with the proper preparation, there is no need to worry about what might come to pass. The most important thing to learn is how to-

Lonesome Hunchback Lucario was recently spotted by a young trainer in the canyons west of Route 15, heading south. The trainer and his Pokémon engaged him, but were immediately knocked out. This mysterious Pokémon is now confirmed to have wandered almost halfway across the globe, leaving fans to wonder if he even had a destination to begin with. Wearing a cloak to cover his body at all times, experts believe his hunch may not be as detrimental as it seems, considering his fighting capabilities are far greater than that of any other Lucario. However, it is most likely grotesque, seeing how he becomes violent as soon as anyone approaches him or asks to see it.

To those of you already heading there to encounter this mystery, there have been no signs of him in the area since. In related news, Fuchsia City's Safari Zone has started a "Find the Elusive Hunchback Lucario" campaign, proclaiming that the Safari Zone is an excellent place to hide. "We are not simply trying to cash in from this event," the Warden says, "We've always thought hunched backs were cool!"
