The story focuses on a trainer called Lillian, who after getting a new Pokemon for her 16th birthday, plans to become the regional champion while making new friends among the way. However, it doesn’t appear all the Pokemon she puts in her team are all friendly, and she’ll have to tame them in order to help both her and her team improve, and with Team Spark’s projects on the rise, she’ll also have to put a stop to them. Can Lillian not only stop them, but also prove to be the regional champion?
The trainer - Lillian
Name - Lillian
Gender - Female
Personality - Depressed, stoic, funny, sarcastic, kind, considerate, non-social, empathic
- Lillian is a 16 year old Pokemon trainer in the Vuroa region who’s always loved Pokemon, even at a young age. She collects all sorts of merchandise from plushies to figurines, even if she does think that she’s a bit too old for them. She’s always been mostly kind and considerate, especially to those who she likes, but has a tendency to easily get mad if she finds something she absolutely loathes.
- She likes to crack up some jokes here and there and likes to use sarcasm a lot. She also suffers from depression and hatred issues, and these issues were amplified after a traumatizing event that caused her to lose her best friends.
- She can understand a few of her Pokemon, such as Edgar, through their partnership with her, like how Ash can understand his Pikachu in the anime.
- Her catchphrase is “Oké doké!”
- On her 11th birthday, she was gifted a Snivy by some of her “best” friends whom she named “Edmond”. The two were quickly inseparable as they learned to love each other and cooperate. This changed 2 years later as after she was late to a friend’s birthday party, they became pissed with her to the point where they didn’t even call her a friend anymore and took back Edmond, and the two were very sorrowful to being forcefully split away, with Lillian being very much miserable for the next week. While she eventually got over it, she could never pass the fact that her own best friends turned against her just for being late to their party and even took away her first Pokemon, and over time, her misery and hatred grew after that very event.
- On her 16th birthday, her parents gave her a new Pokemon for her, and said that she could embark on a new journey with them anytime she wanted. She was ecstatic that her parents did this for her and, after bonding with Edgar, went off soon after.
- She’s pretty depressive.
- Her hatred consumes her at times.
- She has insecurities about her team abandoning her.
- She’s worried about if the power of her team will unintentionally cause destruction or harm others in ways that she didn't anticipate.
Lillian’s team of Pokémon
These are the Pokemon that Lillian uses in her party. She sticks to the 6 Pokemon rule that other trainers do, and shuffles them in and out at times. Here's a sample of 7 of them, not including her starter, that she encounters and trains on her journey:
Name - Edgar
Gender - Male
Species - Stoutland
Type - Normal
Nature - Hardy
Personality - Caring, valiant
- He’s an old but big-hearted Stoutland that cares about Lillian’s safety.
- Fighting actually hurts him, so he doesn’t do it unless it’s necessary.
- Edgar was Lillian’s first “true” Pokemon in the sense that she got to keep him. He was just a wild Stoutland, wandering around and enduring the region, until he finally managed to end up in a shelter, at which Lillian herself “picked” him out in the sense that her parents would later surprise her by obtaining and giving her him.
Abilities - Intimidate - whenever Edgar enters into battle, the attack stat of his opponents are lowered by one.
- Lillian - He sees her as his best friend and owner, and will do everything he can to protect her.
- Korah - He’s disturbed by her appearance and is cautious about Lillian trusting her.
- Very fragile; can’t battle without hurting himself.
- He takes his safety for Lillian a bit too far, in that he suggests and tries to get Lillian away from situations he thinks are dangerous, even if they’re very minor.
Name - Starfall
Gender - Male
Species - Eevee
Type - Normal / Fairy
Nature - Bashful
Characteristics - Easily scared
Personality - Curious, playful, optimistic, cheerful, naive, wimpy
- He resembles an Eevee with a melanistic color scheme, and also has a starry pattern somewhat in the shape of a robe on his back and tip of his tail. The stars on it twinkle as if they’re real stars, and their pattern shifts over time. This pattern glows when Starfall gets excited, and dulls when he’s frightened.
- He’s not an Eevee that is from the region, but rather space, although it’s not known where he exactly originated from. His DNA was mutated from being in space, thus gaining him his melan colors and starry pattern.
- He’s very young and speaks with a child-like lisp.
- He’s easily frightened, but he also gets excited when he’s with Lillian.
- While Lillian doesn’t know much about him, she does know that he fell out of the sky right over Starview Vista, a place where meteor showers usually happen close to Lillian’s home (and as a result, became her second Pokemon), and landed right into a pond. Asides from it looking noticeably different from all the other meteors, she didn’t think much about it until it ran up to her, being curious on who she is and its surroundings, and she catches it.
- It appeared to be distraught by being captured, but after being let out of its PokeBall, he seemed happy that he was freed out of it. Seeing as Lillian was the first human she encountered, he thought that he was his mom, or “Mama” as he calls, and seeing as Lillian does treat him like a child, Lillian thought that the whole nickname made sense. She didn’t know his name, so she just called him “Starfall” after the starry pattern on his back, and to remember that he was captured in Starview Vista.
Abilities - Run Away - If Starfall is in battle with a wild Pokemon, fleeing will always work.
- He’s easily frightened by many things, such as bushes swaying in the wind, or even Lillian’s other party members.
- He’s very naive and will trust almost anything that he thinks doesn’t look menacing.
- Lillian - sees her as his mother, refers to her as his “Mama.”
- Maelstrom, Inebirate, and Korah - Highly scared of them, cowers near Lillian or hides against an object if he sees them.
- Teravolt - Curious on how he became so “metalized,” as he says. He tries to talk with Teravolt at times, but it doesn’t get far.
- Slowly but surely, he matures over the course of the story, and even becomes independent from her.
Name - Maelstrom
Gender - Male
Species - Brionne
Type - Water
Nature - Rash
Characteristics - His slasher smile, loves to battle
Personality - Sadistic, loves to battle, egocentric, charismatic
Info and quirks -
- He mostly always has a sinister smile on him, eager to make new "friends" that'll assist him.
- Like regular Primarina, he loves to sing and create scenes that involve water balloons. However, this isn't just for show; he secretly has a darker purpose behind it all, as his singing secretly tries to tempt Pokemon into "joining" him for the show, at which that point, they'll become ensnared inside a balloon.
- The interior of these water balloons are horrifying locations that entrap their victims into tiny rooms that constantly repeat Maelstrom's own agenda of joining his side (for reasons like not being made fun at anymore or to show people who they truly are) and are also assaulted with the agony of the images that they see on it, all showing destruction and horror, alongside other torturous methods devised by him. They're also not easy to pop from the inside, but with enough force, they can be popped, releasing the subject inside them. As such, Maelstrom uses great care to guard and/or disguise them so nobody realizes what's going on inside. While the amount of time it takes depends from subject to subject if they refuse to give in, this goes on for at least an hour before they're let out, and at that point, they'll happily obey each and every of his command.
- Depending on how exposed the victim was inside a bubble before it's popped, they'll either not be too converted, will only temporarily be brainwashed before their prior memories return, or if they were in long enough, to point where they're permanently brainwashed with nothing they can previously remember with no way to turn them back (and even then, any attempts, despite if they seem to work or not, are just temporary).
- He really doesn’t like it and gets upset when he sees anything relating to fetishes, especially when they involve Popplio, Brionne or Primarina.
- He has an obsession with trying to keep his looks pretty.
- He really likes the Pokemon “Shaymin,” having all sorts of facts and trivia about them.
- Ever since he was just a young Popplio named “Mitty,” he was teased very frequently for being too "girly", as Popplio were destined to evolve into the girlish-looking Brionne, and eventually Primarina. The more he got called those names, the more his anger started to build up. He eventually started fighting some dummies to take out his rage, and he learnt very quickly. The next time he saw somebody call him by that name, they were in for quite a beating. Maelstrom was punished for it, and used this as an opportunity to practice even more on his attacks. This cycle continued even by the time he evolved into a Brionne, and despite his appearances not changing from the girlish stereotype, his attacks became more and more brute and harsher the more he trained.
- Around the same time he evolved, he took up learning how to sing and dance, even if he absolutely loathed it at first. Soon, he began to realize that since those dances were meant to confuse opponents, he had a wonderful but terrible idea; he could try to brainwash them into doing his bidding. Likewise, he took the same idea with his lessons, and when the time came to make water balloons, he used his charisma (and a hint of chemicals that he makes by doses his bubbles in some poison) so that would make his subjects seem like the ideal leader.
- Even with his "girlish" looks and girly name, the latter of which he changed to Maelstrom, he loves to prove anyone wrong by releasing a torrent of painful water attacks onto anybody who says that. You may even find him singing majestically as water balloons bounce around him, but, as you can probably expect, this isn't for amusement, this is just a scheme to brainwash unsuspecting Pokemon and make them join him. Once they get lured into his songs, soon he'll send a water balloon to catch them, which without intervention, will surely convert them to his side. He tried it on humans a few times, but it didn’t work out so well.(edited)
- During this time, he also surprisingly got into doing a lot of shows, mostly for his amusement and to see if he can get Pokemon to join his side, and also got recognized by some people for his skills. While it’s not a real job of his, people do like to see his singing and dance moves, even if it’s mostly just for Pokemon only, and if he partners up with somebody to star in a show, he gets a good sum of the pay, which makes him quite happy.
- Unfortunately, not all was exactly well with that job, so to say. He had a few people who didn’t like him, which wasn’t the real part that bothered them, but more so how they treated him. They thought he was a girl, which he disliked, and also saw that a lot of them didn’t exactly treat his family line as he expected, instead saw that a few of them fetishized them, which he never understood. Why would they like to see them in such bizarre scenarios, often those that involve pain? As a result, he stopped doing his dances in public as he was outright disgusted at them, and really didn’t want to see them, and thought that all of them just thought Primarina as, well, a toy to be played with, and instead just stuck with doing them with Pokemon.
Abilities - Torrent - Maelstrom’s water attacks become powered up when he’s in a pinch (if his HP is at 25%).
- Water Balloon - Maelstrom creates a giant water balloon and sends it at his target, trapping them inside it. The interior of these balloons is specifically made to forcefully manipulate and hypnotize the subject inside them with a constantly repeating mantra made by Maelstrom himself, as well as some bizarre and horrifying images depicting destruction and torture. The subject cannot escape out of the bubble regardless of how much force they put on it, but this doesn’t stop the bubble from being popped by outside forces. This means she usually tried to mask it as something important or play with it as not to let anything damage it. The amount of time it takes for a subject to give into it depends but it usually takes an hour or two before he lets them out, and at that point, they don’t remember anything but who they are and that Maelstrom is their leader, and they’re ready to listen to each and every one of his commands.
- Despite his wonderful work of water, it'll go anywhere. If it goes into drains or pits, they'll quickly suck all the water away.
- He's slow to move on land.
- The only way he can brainwash Pokemon is by trapping them in water balloons, which while they're slightly more durable than a regular water balloon, can be popped with enough effort on the outside, alongside having various results of brainwashing depending on how intense it was and how easily the subject gave in.
- He hates it when his dancing and singing is called girly.
- He gets extremely sensitive if he hears “Mitty” being mentioned.
- Secretly, he is quite lonely but does his best to mask it. (This is one of the main reasons why he actually uses his Water Balloon attacks; to force others into being friends of his.)
- Lillian - Not exactly trusting of her; is concerned she’s manipulating his feelings.
- Inebirate - Doesn’t exactly like her due to how she once intoxicated her.
- Starfall - Hates how optimistic and cheerful he is and how Lillian spends so much time with him. Maelstorm wishes he had someone like Lillian when he was younger.
- Teravolt - See him as a mindless machine and thinks little of him, but is always a bit on edge when around him due to his power.
- Meeting Lillian for the first time and failing to mind control her, at first he will be cold and distant. Lillian with be very mad at his little trick, but will do her best to break open his cold hard exterior. Making his first true friend will be a big turning point for him.
- Eventually, he accepts his fate of being a girly looking Brionne who likes to put on shows. This soon causes him to evolve.
Name - Maelstrom
Gender - Male
Species - Primarina
Type - Water / Fairy
Nature - Rash
Characteristics - His slasher smile, loves to battle
Personality - Sadistic, loves to battle, egocentric, charismatic
Info and quirks - (Mostly the same as before)
- Maelstrom evolved after he accepted his fate.
- He generally doesn’t use his water balloons much unless it’s to make a point or if the opposing Pokemon is being naughty. If he gets desperate for friends, he’ll use it to make the nearest Pokemon or human his “best” friend.
- After Maelstrom accepts his fate, he soon evolves into a majestic Primarina, and despite his girlish looks, he was glad that at least he has somebody on his side, and to have her show that trying to forcefully make them friends isn’t the right thing to do.
Abilities - Torrent - Maelstrom’s water attacks become powered up when he’s in a pinch (if his HP is at 25%).
Flaws - (Same as before)
- If he gets desperate for friends, he’ll use a water balloon on the nearest Pokemon or human to make them his “best” friend.
- At one point in the story he should laps back to his old ways, perhaps with Inebriate or Alloy when he fails to make friends with them.
Name - Teravolt
Gender - Male
Species - Jolteon
Type - Electric / Steel
Nature - Quiet
Characteristics - Mechanical with only a few parts of regular Jolteon showing
Personality - Cold, calculating, heartless
Info and quirks -
- The majority of his body is completely mechanized. This includes his insides.
- As his brain is (almost) completely mechanized (and the only remaining bits of his actual brain aren't really in use) and his original mindset was “wiped” clean after performing his first "Teravolt Desolation," he doesn't have any memories of his previous, alive self, nor does he have any emotions. As such, he acts very robotic, from his movements to how he acts.
- His tail acts like a Jacob's Ladder (the spark gap kind) with electric arcs constantly flowing on it.
- He has an Electrium Z-Crystal embedded inside of him, which acts as a power source. It charges when he's sleeping or "deactivated".
- He can either be "activated", which means that he's on and functioning, or "deactivated", which means that he's deactivated or sleeping while activated, and his power source is charging during this state. He'll automatically boot up if it's full, and the charging process can be accelerated if he gets connected to a power source of if he's hit with electricity.
- Electric attacks don't hurt him by much but instead charge up his power source. If it starts to overflow, he'll have static very visibly surround him, and can potentially do his most powerful attack, "Teravolt Desolation", if it gets too full just so he can remove it from his systems.
- He can translate Pokemon speech to English and back again perfectly.
- He acts as the translator for Lillian’s team, translating Pokemon speak to English.
- He can charge up other items that run on electricity, but he doesn't have an idea of controlling his voltage; this causes a lot of items he charges to overload.
- The metal on him is very sharp - it can lacerate and mangle hands, fingers, and paws alike just by touching it.
- He has a database of all known Pokemon and legendaries (minus mythicals), letting him know what their types and attacks are, among other details, so he can come up with strategies to beat them, but this doesn't include mythicals (such as Mew), Ultra Beasts, Fakemon, nor Pokemon who have been genetically altered, such as Alloy, or Starfall.
- Before Teravolt was created, there was a Jolteon named Volt that belonged to a trainer. He was an inseparable friend from them, and vice versa, but this all changed after Volt was shot at by a poacher, as since he was alone in an illegal poacher area, they were convinced that he was a wild Pokemon, killing him. His trainer was deeply worried something bad happened to Volt, and after some searching, they found Volt's decomposing corpse and mangled carcass. They were deeply upset and extremely saddened, and in an act of desperation, took what remained of Volt over to a scientists lab, owned by the mostly unknown team called "Team Spark" who were then only known for generating power, and begged them to save Volt, in which they agreed. The trainer was unaware that they were planning to create a weapon of mass destruction, and now that they had a subject, they used this opportunity to create it.
- They put on robotic replacement parts on parts of his body where they were mangled, trying to make it look good as new, and put in a power source in him, which was an Electrium Z-Crystal, and it would automatically charge if he was deactivated. No longer was he technically alive, he was stuck with a power source that, if it ran out, he'd automatically shut down to charge up while he's deactivated, and had to be activated manually, or if his charge reached max while deactivated. They now called him Teravolt, a name made to exemplify his enhanced electrical attacks and abilities, and the scientists were deliberately trying to increase his powers to the point where they'd become lethal, allowing them to lethally shock both people and Pokemon alike to get their way. When Teravolt first awoke in his new form, he had no idea where he was, or what happened to him, but he was truly horrified that he was in such a place like this and he has been converted into a weapon in the works. He tried to run away but he only got painful shocks that were much stronger than he could hold, and the same happened if he disobeyed the scientists. He was subjected to many tests and experiments, each worse and more painful than the last. As his mechanical parts started to wear down or if they didn't work as expected, his older robotic parts and regular body were replaced with newer, more powerful parts, which was a very painful process. The entire experience at the lab was immensely traumatizing for Teravolt, and not helping matters was that these parts also seemed to be taking over his real aspects, such as his brain and mind, which gradually removed memories, his personality, among other things, and the process only accelerated the more he was traumatized. He struggled to keep his memories by being calm, but this didn't work out as the tests only became more and more painful and traumatizing, and by the end of all of it, he could only remember his trainer and their love for him, deeply hoping that he would rescue him someday. In addition to this, he started to gain feelings of intense anger, rage and a deep hatred for humanity, which corrupted his systems and also sped up the mechanization process of his inner parts.
- The entire process lasted for a grueling nine months, in which the scientists claimed that Volt (or sometimes just said his new name and "corrected" it to Volt) was in a coma as the experiments went on and they were trying to get him to live, and his trainer believed them. At least, until that one fateful day where he went into the lab unsupervised and found what was actually happening. They broke down into tears to see their best friend has been turned into a mechanical beast, with only little parts of them showing their previous, alive self. Teravolt was extremely happy to see his trainer was still alive and save as they tried to save him from the scientists, but they caught on, forcing Teravolt to execute him by shocking him to death, which he refused to do before the scientists outright controlled him. He couldn't believe it. He was forced to kill the very trainer who he was with for years and years, all for the sake of becoming a super weapon by some greedy scientists. His rage and hatred for them skyrocketed to exceptional levels as he unleashed the most powerful attack of them all (that wasn't even tested by them), "Teravolt Desolation". The entire lab was destroyed and hollowed out in only a matter of seconds as he enveloped it into sparks and electricity, killing everybody inside it. Teravolt was extremely weak after it, only whimpering and sobbing in the spot he just been, regretting what he been through, the scientists who ruined him, and how his trainer that he loved tried to save his very life, two times, but only ended out making it worse. With his unstable state, the mechanization process was almost complete, as he was almost turned into a robot. His body shut down on him, deactivating as Teravolt fell into a deep sleep. Time has passed and when he awoke, there was nothing of his previous self that remained, all being erased by his new mechanical brain. The only thing he knew about himself was that he was Teravolt, his powers, and immense rage and anger against everybody. It never faded away as he turned to taking his powers out on innocents to help ease his mind, shocking them with the most powerful attacks he has.
Abilities - Volt Absorb - Teravolt converts any electricity attacking him into energy, but if too much enters his system, he’ll perform Teravolt Desolation to get it out.
- Teravolt Desolation - Teravolt's most powerful attack. It's a significantly more powerful version of Gigavolt Havoc, deliberately engineered with the use of a Electrium Z-Crystal and made to purposely permanently damage anybody it's hit on with severe injuries, or can even kill them. Using this drains almost all of Teravolt's powers and he'll be put into a temporary shutdown until he charges up again, so he only uses this as a last resort or if he's overcharged.
- With how powerful his electricity attacks are, he can be very easily tired out (although a shock will recharge him).
- If low on energy, he will not have second thoughts about leeching energy from a nearby power pole, or another teammate.
- It can take up to a good week or so for him to fully charge on his own without support.
- If he gets charged up beyond his max limit, he'll automatically perform Teravolt Desolation without any warning just so he can get the excess power out of his systems.
- He has a hard time conversing with other Pokemon and humans.
- He completely lacks emotions, and has a hard (if not outright impossible) time expressing sympathy.
- He can't control the amount of voltage he gives out.
- He can try to charge up items that require electricity... but they'll probably just become overloaded, and possibly explode.
- The metal on himself is absurdly sharp - if a human tries to pet him without protection, chances are likely they're just going to get their hand cut wide open. (Basically, in terms of how sharp he is, he’s worse than a regular Jolteon.)
- While he has a database on all known Pokemon and legendaries, this doesn't include anything about Ultra Beasts nor Fakemon, making him nigh on useless as he just uses random strategies against them, and attempting to say anything about them results in corrupted angrish. He’s also strictly reliant on that database; if a Pokemon he fights switches up its strategy from what a regular one does, he won’t be prepared for it and will just try to stick with his regular attacks for it.
- He uses a text parser to talk, but he has a limited range of communication, often leading to him saying sentences like “I don’t know how to ‘thank’ an ‘Arceus’” or “I don’t know what a ‘Malasada’ is.”
- Lillian - He sees her as his owner and commander.
- Others - He has trouble socializing and talking to others, and conversations with him don’t go far. They can get annoyed with him constantly repeating “I don’t know…” due to his text parser.
- He learns to fight without relying on the database in his mind, he still uses it, but he has the ability to think for himself and change his strategies on the fly. (Note: this should come before he learns to feel again.)
- He learns feel again; either by the few organic parts of his brain latching on to the mechanical parts of his brain, or the machine brain sees it as beneficial to his survival so it makes him learn it.
Name - Inebriate
Gender - Female
Species - Floatzel
Type - Poison / Water
Nature - Hardy
Characteristics - careless with subjects and victims, drunkard
Personality - Sadistic, childish, forgetful, impressionable
Info and quirks -
- She's highly toxic and radioactive, and can easily just pollute anything without even trying just by touching it. Likewise, she can intoxicate others just by touching them.
- Just like how she manages to intoxicate others by simply touching them, her poison actually made her permanently inebriated on a much stronger scale, influencing her negative and malicious behavior, such as violently attacking others and trying her poison out on others.
- She has the mentality of a child.
- She has sharp claws on her hands and feet.
- She loves to see those in pain, especially with if they're slow, cruel, and painful.
- When Inebriate was just a young Buizel, she spent most of her time playing around in water pools, and learned from her parents on how to swim, observe and catch potential prey, among others. Unfortunately, after her parents “left” her (they were killed), at just the age of 3 years old, she took home near a chemical manufacturing plant and nuclear facility, which evidently had rivers and lakes filled with contaminated water and other chemicals, such as heavy metals, radioactive materials, drugs, sludge, etc. She was smart enough to stay away from them, but one day, she accidentally took a plunge in one lake without looking, and, surprisingly, it didn't seem to harm her much, but there were noticeable side effects to it, such as her getting adapting more poisonous traits and vomiting up actual toxic waste. She didn't know what to do about this since she would probably get noticed, so whenever she felt the urge, she ran off to the lake and vomited there. She also noticed other difficulties with her new state, as she started to even poison water she came into contact with, and her behavior became increasingly fierce and feral, like slicing off limbs of smaller Pokemon to eat them, and regularly created toxic waste around her just by being in a single location for awhile, but she also gained the ability to swim into toxic water without any issues whatsoever, and could also consume it safely, so she slowly started to transition into swimming in the toxic lakes and rivers instead of the regular ones, meaning she was regularly covered in toxic, radioactive waste. This changed one day as she was swimming in one of them, only for her tails to get caught and tangles in some sort of material. She tried to use her tails and swim out of it but it didn't do much but worsen the state she was in, and ended up being surrounded in the toxic and radioactive waste. While she managed to get safely afloat, there was no telling how long she'd be stuck like this and how much damage would be done after this, even if she had been swimming in it for months, so she constantly screamed for help, hoping somebody, even if it was stronger than her, would notice her and at least do something, since she thought any fate would have been better than this. As you can expect, she was horribly wrong, as some humans who worked there found her, and, while she thought she was safe at first, they noticed she needed medical attention due to how long she was in the polluted water. The company hired some workers at an organization who researches Pokemon to do the job for them since they were inexperienced with managing them, and after saving her, they were going to originally take care of it, but on closer examination, they wished to research the Buizel in order to learn what exactly happened to it, how poisonous it is, among other reasons, so they set up a temporary base inside the plant.
- As such, she gained a seemingly permanent "home" inside the facility, being trapped in selection of tiny rooms made for testing lab purposes; her bedroom, which was really just a sterile table bolted to the floor with a cover on it, the pool, which was a testing room that had a pool of water in it (and was regularly cleansed due to her poisoning it), and the diagnosis room, which contained another sterile table, and chains to bolt up Inebriate in order to gather samples from her, perform biopsies, CT scans, among other investigations to learn more about her status and how toxic she was, which was a very horrible, painful, and traumatizing experience. The scientists later named her "Inebriate" due to how she manages to intoxicate subjects just by touching them, and the same happened with any water she came into contact with. The only somewhat redeeming part of the experience was the translator, which Inebriate used to talk to the scientists in a language they could understand, and even then, it turned out to be faulty at times with frequent mistranslations.
- These experiments seemed to take forever, and Inebriate hoped for the day they'd finally release her, which, unfortunately, never came for her. As such, she gained her distaste and hatred of humans from them performing these tasks on her without any reasoning (asides from their excuse being they wanted to learn more about her, and she doesn't know any details about it, asides that she got poisoned) and didn't have a choice in them regardless. Even if she could, trying to attack the scientists was feeble as they'd just shrug them off without much damage, so she was stuck with them.
- As time passed, she began to become increasingly brutal, from mauling and dismembering subjects that come in contact with her and outright eating their parts, to drowning them in the deep depths of the pools that she's placed in, and sometimes both. The scientists took note of this, increasing their security around her rooms as she was barely even allowed to do anything but sleep, swim, and be tested on without any choices.
- Months passed and she eventually evolved into a Floatzel, she also noticed that she grew sharp claws, which could potentially be used to attack people and Pokemon alike. She started to practice out her attacks with them, alongside teaching herself various water related moves (granted, the water she spat out was highly toxic), all while the scientists investigated it and her new attacks. She made up a plan where she'd break out of the facility during an experiment as the diagnosis room had the only window outside to escape. Indeed, during her last experiment, she corroded the chains that stuck her to the table, smashed through the glass, and completely wrecked both the rooms connected to it and the scientists, all of which were dead in only a matter of minutes as she actively disintegrated them, drowned them, and completely mutilated them into mangled corpses. The other (Organization name) scientists decided that it would have been too much of a hassle to try and even keep her, so they let her free... although what they didn't expect was that she stole all of the material related to her, including their notes, gear, and the translator. The scientists working didn't bother to even try to find her, seeing as she easily overpowered them, and just took it as somebody else's problem once they found them, not theirs. The company, however, didn’t appreciate the damages that she made while leaving the building and fined the organization for them.
- After the whole incident of her being trapped there, she decided to test her new toxins and abilities herself on other Pokemon, trying out new combinations of poisons and chemicals to see their effects, and hopes that they'll be exceptionally painful and slow.
Abilities - Klutz - Inebriate doesn’t know how use many items unless specifically told to and how to do it.
- Intoxicate - Inebriate can inebriate subjects just by being near them for too long.
- She's permanently drunk due to her poison inebriating herself. This causes her to act much more malicious than she probably actually is.
- She's very hesitate to trust people.
- Her instincts of slashing and dismembering people and Pokemon alike may overwhelm her.
- Because she barely has had any “training” outside the facility she was trapped in, her mentality is very young. Not helping this is her traumatization of the whole process as well. Some think that she’s possibly brain damaged as well.
- Impressionable due to being a child; good can influence her as much as violence.
- Lillian - She sees her as a responsible parent.
- Maelstrom - She doesn’t get why he wants to stay away from her, not realizing that she inebirates her own subjects at first.
- Inebirate eventually learns to control her own toxins, leading her subjects to become less intoxicated by being around her, as well as polluting her environment less.
- She eventually learns how to be mature, influencing her behavior.
Name - Lucipurr
Gender - Female
Species - Espurr
Type - Psychic
Nature - Lonely
Characteristics - Bandages cover her eyes and ears, wishes she could be understood by others
Personality - Anti-social, introverted
Info and quirks -
- Lucipurr resembles an ordinary Espurr, minus the bandages covering her eyes and holding her ears down. She does this to restrain herself as her powers are a little... too powerful.
- While she's extremely weak in a physical sense, her psychic powers make up for it. They're much more powerful than a regular Espurr should even be able to handle, so Lucipurr has to take extra caution not to unleash it on anybody.
- Those who are inflicted by her abilities can see how they're going to die, see nightmarish images that can cause them to go into a seizure or coma, have their memory be completely erased, or, at worst, get teleported to her own realm, where her victims aimlessly wander forever until they go mad from insanity, which they might be let out of that hellish realm, or until their inevitable death. Similarly, more unfortunate victims can also have their spirit burnt up, as it gets sent to Lucipurr's realm, where they wander in it for an eternity, leaving their soulless body left behind.
- At its most powerful capabilities, her regular psychic powers have a blast radius of four hundred and fifty feet of complete and total elimination of everything that stands in its path. It's rumored that most of the debris is transported to her own world.
- Should anybody try to open her ears, they'll immediately damage the person or Pokemon who done so in... rather damaging ways to the mind. (See above for more details.)
- Her eyes are a foggy white, although it's unlikely that she'll show them to somebody, even her most trusted friends, due to the side effects of what happens to her victims should she stare directly at them with her unrestrained power. (See above for more details.) Despite the bandages covering them, her eyes seem to glow right through them.
- She will only willingly remove her bandages if she engages somebody whom she absolutely loathes, or if it's as an attack she wants to preform, as a form of punishing them so they can be subjected to her psychic powers.
- She always carries a lantern, whom she calls "Lurntern", resembling a Chandelure's head. It appears to have some form of sentience, as it can look around and use its flames at enemies. Should it be lost, it will find its way back to her, mindlessly harming any victims on its way with similar powers to Lucipurr. Those who she trusts can look into it to see a glimpse of Lucipurr's world and the unfortunate souls who are trapped in it.
- Lucipurr is not somebody who's very social, and only says very little words when necessary, but she often goes into long-winded tirades should she become angered. She generally uses her psychic powers to talk with others.
- Lucipurr was just an ordinary, unnamed Espurr that had a bit too much psychic powers stored up inside of her. She had to store them whenever she could, and become less and less social as a result of trying to contain her abilities. Lucipurr learned the hard way about her abilities, such as sucking those into her world, then a dimension unknown to her, as she looked into unsuspecting Pokemon, who, often not, shortly then spazzed out and died. She had a trainer, a 11 year old child named Tia, who cared for her, but was very curious to see what lurked inside her ears. Lucipurr tried with all her might to stop Tia from taking a peek inside them, and it, thankfully, at least stopped her from trying. Tia's parents said that she should abandon the Espurr since they were frequently getting visions of it killing them and other, similar visions, but she didn't listen to them.
- When Tia was just 13, she and Lucipurr were all alone in her basement. Lucipurr wasn't paying attention to what she was doing, and as such, she finally got a peak at what was inside her ears, looking at the yellow, circular organs inside of them. Lucipurr was beyond her control of what happened next, as her spirit was sucked out of her body and into herself, and things only escalated from there. It only happened in a matter of seconds, but by the end of it, her house was absolutely nothing but mere debris on the ground, with Lucipurr just sitting there, wondering what just happened. As she looked at the dead, limping corpse of her trainer, she realized that she actually unintentionally killed her, just like how she unintentionally killed those Pokemon.
- Her parents soon arrived and saw the mere remains of their house as they called the Espurr such things like a "reincarnation of the devil itself", thus giving a new nickname to Lucipurr that she'd eventually adapt into her own name. She abandoned them and her trainer, never wanting this situation to ever happen again to anybody else, going off into the distance, seemingly never to be seen by humans ever again.
- For many years, she resided at an abandoned mansion where she, or at least she thought, was all alone. She didn't realize that a Chandelure owned the domain before her, and eventually, it confronted her. It never expected to see such strong powers from an Espurr, though, so its powers caused the Chandelure to have its soul become sucked away, only leaving its body. However, Lucipurr noticed something odd about the head of it, as it shown something foggy inside of it. She took a closer peek at it and inside was the spirit of her trainer, walking around in an eternal, foggy void, alongside her house. She started to tear up that whatever the location it was showing, she was likely sent to it and has been in it for years, never to find her way back home. She turned the Chandelure's remains into a makeshift lantern that she called "Lurntern", holding it to remind herself of the one she loved very much. She later realized that not all of the Chandelure was sucked into herself, as its remains seemed to think of Lucipurr as a master of sorts. It followed her wherever she went if she forgot about it, and it attacked innocents along its way unless Lucipurr was there with it. She took a note of that and carried it wherever she went.
- While at the mansion, she also noticed that her eyes were a foggy white, just like the void that had been shown in the Chandelure. She ended up putting bandages on them and her ears so she wouldn't accidentally harm those just by looking at them or if they opened up her ears, and even though she wasn't able to see clearly, she adapted to the use of using her psychic powers to know her surroundings around her, from the terrain to living beings.
Abilities - Keen Eye - Lucipurr’s attack accuracy cannot be reduced.
- Earsplosion - Lucipurr lets her psychic abilities come out of her ear, causing damaging effects to the subject.
- Eye Scream - Lucipurr removes her eye bandages and stares directly at the subject, causing a myriad of effects from seeing visions, to having seizures, or having their memory wiped.
- Lucipurr can barely control her psychic abilities. She has to lock herself up to prevent others from being involuntarily hurt by her own powers.
- She has limited control over her psychic abilities if she removes her bandages herself by preparing herself for it. If her bandages are removed by somebody else, she can't prepare herself for it and as a result, can't control anything that happens to them.
- Her "pet", Lurntern, mindlessly harms others if it's "disconnected" with Lucipurr.
- Tia - Her old trainer, now trapped in her realm - she feels terrible about what happened, even if it wasn't in her control.
- Lillian - She’s exceptionally glad that Lillian is listening to her and isn’t afraid of her.
- Korah - Despite her appearances, she’s happy that she’s getting a motherly, caring figure to look over her.
- Meeting Lillian for the first time and finally getting the chance to open up to someone who will listen.
- As she comes to terms with her past losts and the death of Tia, Lucipurr gains more control over her power, perhaps partly or fully.
- Somehow Lucipurr gets the chance to talk to Tia one last time finally putting her soul to rest.
Name - Alloy
Gender - Male
Species - Sandslash
Type - Steel / Ground
Nature - Naughty
Characteristics - Has an obsession with digging and causing sinkholes
Personality - Arrogant, destructive
Info and quirks -
- All of his quills are pure, sharp steel spikes. These, alongside his claws, grow little by little every day.
- His claws on his hands and feet are as sharp as drills, and can also be used as them.
- He has two, visibly protruding and very sharp teeth that sharper than razor tips.
- He has a large ego and dislikes it if people talk against him or his tactics.
- He’s not somebody of much words, but will listen to his trainer’s commands if he’s in the mood to do it.
- He likes to harm Pokemon and humans alike, usually by drilling the ground in some way.
- He has a fear of fire and magma, likely due to it once heating up his quills and claws to their melting point.
- Team Spark, their leader being unfazed by the destructive failure of Teravolt, decided to take a different approach with their next subject. Instead of mechanizing it, they'd perform DNA tests on it to genetically modify it to become more powerful, in the motivation that they wished to match the power of a "PokeGod", hypothetical powerful beings that were supposedly obtainable in Kanto when it was all the rage, and the results... worked, to an extent.
- They took a Sandslash and started to experiment on it with DNA testing, as well as physical testing to see how well it fared in battle. They used the DNA of Pokemon like Excadrill and Aggron to give its quills and claws more steel-like attributes as well as attributes of the said Pokemon, them being the ability to drill with ease (but also has a bad habit of drilling into underground structures), and its quills grow longer by time (although also got its arrogance) respectively.
- While progress went well on the Sandslash, now called Alloy for its steel-like qualities, it was quickly becoming obvious that its behavior to the workers was getting increasingly harsh, from thrashing those who come in contact with him to drilling parts of the ground underneath the facility, thus causing sinkholes. Eventually, progress on Alloy was outright abandoned, much to the dismay and rage of Team Spark's leader, after the entire facility he was developed in was swallowed whole by a giant sinkhole made by Alloy.
Abilities - Sand Rush - Alloy’s speed will increase if he’s in the middle of a sandstorm.
- Buzzsaw - Alloy curls up into a spiky, steel ball and rams himself into the opponent, causing very painful injuries where the spikes hit them.
- He likes to drill into man-made structures and deliberately damage them.
- He's especially prone to fire heating up himself to unsafe degrees, which at that point, can melt his quills and claws.
- He gets dizzy after drilling for too long.
- He likes to make sinkholes wherever he goes.
- Lillian - Occasionally he doesn’t listen to her advice due to his ego, but he’ll listen to her if he’s in the mood.
- As Lillian tells him to tone down his ego, he listens to her more and more as their friendship increases.
- He eventually stops trying to deliberately drill into structures and harm others by creating sinkholes, although that doesn’t stop his urges to do so.
Name - Korah
Gender - Female
Species - Houndoom
Nature - Adamant
Characteristics - Loyal to her family, ready to attack anyone who harms her children, kind but knows when to battle
Personality - Loyal, kind, tough
Info and quirks -
- She has a skull on her that’s merged to her head.
- Her underbelly is filled with purple flames.
- Don’t be fooled by her threatening appearance - she can be surprisingly kind to those who are in need of help.
- She loves her children very much and will do anything for them.
- Korah had two Houndour children that she loves very much. She tried to save them from a life threatening accident but ended up dying with them. After waking up in the afterworld, she was surprised that she managed to “survive” it, even if she did die and wasn’t even in the real world. She was separated from them and desperately wanted to see if they were intact, like herself, and they were… in a way. A Dusknoir gave her the souls of her children, but they had no physical form to them. Korah vowed that she’d try to find a way to make them, and possibly her, alive again, all with physical forms.
- As time passed, she eventually met a Giratina with shadow magic, and thought that it could at least bring the two back. It struck a deal with her saying that she’d bring herself back and give her shadow magic on her own, with the ability to summon her children, at the cost that she’s use it to perform routinely chaos and destruction. Korah was reluctant at first, but ultimately agreed if they could help bring back her children from the dead, it'd be worth it. The Giratina taught her how to use the magic and changed up her appearance to make her more threatening, and she revived herself without a problem. Her children, herself, didn’t exactly go through the revivation process very well, becoming former husks of themselves that were now the pure embodiment of hellhounds. They now follow her every command willingly, and she’s at least happy that they’re alive and she could see them, even if it did have side effects.
Abilities - Early Bird - Korah is quick to wake up if she’s sleeping.
- Summon children - Korah summons her two Houndour children to fight alongside her.
- She's too loyal, as in she’ll do anything for the ones she loves most.
- After being traumatized by losing her children, she’ll put herself in life threatening situations to save those who she likes.
- She may routinely cause some chaos and destruction to some innocent Pokemon, ironically enough to her normally kind personality.
- Lillian - Happy that she’s not disturbed by her appearance and is willing to help her.
- Starfall - Tries to help him out at times, but he just runs away from her, understanding that it's due to her appearance.
- Lucipurr - Understands her backstory and why people didn’t like her, and wants to help her out in any way she can.
- Despite how much she loves her children, she inevitably looks into what she done to her children with reviving them, especially as firey hellhounds, as wrong, and hates herself for that, almost going insane at times by thinking about that.
Who is Team Spark? They're the villainous team of the story, and while they’re generally not well known in Vuroa, asides from the fact they own some power plants and research labs that oddly seem to destroy themselves, and their leader is hellbent on making a super weapon to take over the region. The said super weapon is any sort of Pokemon they can find, and the ways they try to enhance their power, or "unleash their true potential" as one of their scientists says, are questionable at best and downright malicious at worst, with them forcefully mechanizing them, warping their minds, among other things.
Taking a page off of Colress, the researcher from Team Plasma in Unova, their scientists developed many iterations of mind control devices for Pokemon, dubbed as “Pokémon Control Devices”, to show the true power they hold inside, from using EM waves, senders in conjunction with receivers, direct lasers that forcefully control any Pokemon they hit, among others. They also preform such actions like DNA testing, robotization, among other experiments that don't condone any safe methods.
