Book 1:The Lost Chapters by mechsrule


Story Notes:

This story is part of my series for a good reason. If you can't guess the reason by the end of the first chapter, read it again until you do! I'm trying out a first person perspective, a perspective I haven't written in for a while. I hope I can still do it well. The rating will go up as the story progresses and warnings will appear when necessary.General Disclaimer: All publicly recognizable characters, settings, etc. are the property of their respective owners; Nintendo, Game Freak, Creatures inc, and Pokemon inc.

Nabooru's story

"I can't hold on!" I cried. I was holding on desperately to Bob to avoid being sucked into a giant vortex. Perhaps I should explain what was going on. Me, my dad, and his friends were fighting the big evil guy Mewthree. I was just a tiny Riolu. I really don't know why I was there. I was only a month or so old and I wasn't anywhere near strong. Maybe if I had been a Lucario I wouldn't have hurt my dads Pokémon League challenge. That had been really pathetic, I lost every match. Right now Mewthree had gotten these giant pokémon to create a swirling vortex in the sky that was trying to suck us all in. Holding on to Bob would have been easy if I had thumbs. I didn't and the pull was too great. My grip slipped and I flew away towards oblivion. As I spiraled through the air, something hit me in the head and knocked me out. I knew nothing more.

"Ow." I moaned. My thoughts floated around incoherently. As I pieced together what happened and where I was I shot straight up and felt something slide off my back but I didn't notice at the time. I should be dead; after all I fell into the vortex. Unless my dad had somehow saved me! I looked around to see where everyone was.
I was alone. I started crying. "Come on Nabooru, things could be worse." I mumbled. I couldn't just stay there forever. I started to away my tears with the back of my hand. Something hard and metallic poked me in the side of my head. Confused I looked at hit. On the back of my hand sat a little metal spike. For a minute I started at it, not blinking, trying to comprehend what I was seeing. Yesterday morning it was a metal disk, just like any normal Riolu but now it was a spike. Only Lucario had spikes.
But I couldn't be a Lucario, a Riolu needs a sign of love to evolve. I looked at myself and sure enough, I had become a Lucario. A small Lucario, only a bit bigger then I was before.
"Guess I'm still young." I said. It was weird, it sounded different. Still I couldn't figure out how I had evolved. I looked around and saw what had fallen off my back. It was Bob's pack. It's what must have hit me. I looked at it confused. I picked it up and six red and white balls fell out. I looked at them wide eyed. I picked one up and pressed the button.
"Are we dead?" asked Impa who had sprung out. I released the other four.
"What happened?" Naetoru asked.
"I'm not really sure. Last thing I remember I fell into the vortex and this pack hit me in the head. I think Bob threw it at me." I explained.
"But why?" Shio wondered.
"I think it was to save me." I said quietly. "It couldn't have been an accident or it wouldn't have caused me to evolve.
"Throw us all together rather than keep us with him?" Impa said. "It makes no sense."
"But at least we're all together." Kan replied.
"Yes but where are we?" Naetoru wondered.
"I'll go get a look around." Mukkuru said. She flew up and circled around for a few minutes. She came back and landed on Naetoru's back-tree. "I have no idea where we are. Nothing looks familiar, though I did spot a small village nearby."
"I wish you wouldn't roost there." Naetoru said.
"But it's such a convenient tree." Mukkuru joked.
"I say we head for the village and find out where we are." Shio suggested.
"Then let's go!" I declared throwing the pack on. They reluctantly joined me but they technically had no choice, since Bob had given them to me, they were technically my pokémon and I was their trainer. How funny that must have been, five reasonably sized pokémon following a tiny Lucario. As we got closer Mukkuru flew ahead.
"It's defiantly a human town." She reported.
"Then I'll be doing the talking!" I said. We walked out of the trees. "Hello, can you help us?" I asked a nearby woman leading a little kid around.
"Oh my god!" The woman shrieked getting in front of the kid.
"I know, I speak English, but we just want to know where we are." I said.
"Don't hurt us!" The woman screamed and ran away dragging the kid with her.
"Something tells me these humans aren't too friendly with pokémon." Naetoru commented.
"Uh was that the woman screaming in panic or the group of heavily armed soldiers running this way?" Impa asked.
"What did you say?" I said nervously.
"There seems to be a group of a couple dozen heavily armed soldiers coming this way." Impa replied.
"I suggest we run." Shio said slowly.
"I have a better idea!" I said. I returned all of them except Mukkuru and leaped on her back. "Fly us out of here! It's the only way to outrun them!"
"Hang on!" she called. She spread her wings and we were disappearing into the distance before the soldiers could even raise their weapons to fire. After a while we decided to fly until we found the next town. We flew through the night and eventually spotted a small village hidden away in a valley. Mukkuru landed and I released everyone else.
"I hope this village is better then the last." I said. The first thing I noticed was there wasn't any humans in the village at all.
"Who are you?" asked a friendly looking Clefable asked.
"We're travelers trying to figure out where we are and find our trainer." I said making sure to use pokéspeak.
"What's a trainer? And this is the Healing Valley. We're neutral in the war if you don't know."
"War? What War?" Naetoru asked confused.
"The war! That's been going on for centuries! How can you not know about it?" the Clefable said surprised.
"We've never heard of it. Our trainer, a human, he wears a cloak and funny hat with a feather." I explained.
"You're a human sympathizer?" the Clefable said angrily.
"I'm very confused. Look we're just trying to find him. Last any of us remember we there thrown into a portal in the sky and ended up here." I said.
"Well I'm not sure what to say to that. You're welcome to live in here though if your friend is human he's either an enemy or dead. Any human is killed on sight on this side of the boarder. Except here, we're neutral so killing anyone here is illegal."
"Thank you I guess." I said.
"So we're on our own." Kan said sadly.
"What are we going to do now?" Shio wondered.
"We're not going to do anything." I said.
"What do you mean?" Impa asked.
"What can we do? There's just the six of us, no real reason to do anything. It's obvious that either everyone else stayed behind or ended up somewhere else. We can't go looking because if their on this half they'll be killed and if they're on that half we can't find them and they'll be killed anyway." I said.
"So what are you suggesting?" Mukkuru asked.
"Do just was she said. Settle down and live life. I don't like it either but what else is there. It doesn't look like this place has too many pokémon to defend it and we can do that. In a small way protect a little place."
"I do think a break from the action would be nice." Kan agreed.
"And this is a nice place if a bit simple." Shio added.
"And since my real trainer is in another time why not." Impa shrugged.
"So it's agreed, we'll all stay?" I asked. They nodded. "Good."

Over the next few years we lived in the village, helping out where we could and trying to build lives for ourselves but the feelings of restlessness kept us awake wondering where our friends were. Then everything changed one day. It was after an unprecedented and spontaneous attack on the village that was repelled only because we had caught word soon enough and help was sent to defend us. The next morning I looked around to search for survivors. I was about to give up when I looked into a cave and saw a human slumped against the floor. There was something familiar about him so I decided then and there to not kill him and to try and get him healed up. Little did I know this would change my life forever.
