Greetings ladies and gentlemen! We know you’re all been eagerly anticipating the grand final of the worldwide, all-star, contest of the ages battle brawler event! Our two contestants are itching and ready to have a go at each other, so we won’t delay this any longer! If you haven’t stocked up already, make sure you go to the lobby to get yourself some popcorn, soda, and candy ready; for there isn’t going to be a battle like this ever again in all of recorded hist-
What’s that? What do you mean we can’t find the candidates? They aren’t in their rooms? Oh it’s been ransacked, that explains a lot - wait what? WHO!? Well deal with it!!
Sorry folks, looks like we are dealing with some technical anomalies. *distant screaming* Our team of skilled battle technicians are already leaping into action to resolve the matter *a large pane of glass breaks fairly nearby* and we trust to have the problem solved shortly.*very large fire roaring in the background*
So yeah, for this years’ summer contest our theme is “a tournament being hijacked.” The setting for this year will be the base holding the last battle brawler competition - for something seriously afoul is going on. What exactly is this horrid plot? Well that’s up to you. Maybe it’s a massive invasion that’s taking no prisoners, maybe a virulent disease is spreading unchecked, maybe the place ran out of popcorn for some reason. Regardless of the stakes, the story needs to be about figuring out what is going on there, and perhaps avoiding certain catastrophe. That last bit about avoiding catastrophe isn’t strictly mandatory, but well, you know. At any rate, both finalists in the battle brawler tournament have disappeared, and the initial investigation leads to suspicions of foul play. Their rooms have been ransacked and left an awful mess, and there isn’t much initially to go on. So how do we suspect foul play? Dude, this is Pokeumans, what else would it be? That said, who might of done this, for what reason or reasons, what allegiances they hold, and how the heck they managed to pull off such a feat is entirely up to you.
Write a story that features Pokeumans dealing with the crisis at hand.
The event takes place in summer of 2017.
