Hey little monsters, it is time once again to move to a galaxy far far away. It is time for the third official installment of Poké Wars: Generation IV Blue Hope. In Part 2 which you can read here, Rioluke met up with Rotom W and 3 people by purchasing them from the Patrat sandcrawler with his uncle Unowen. Soon it turned out that Rotom Wash did not want to abandon it’s former mission and and took off in the night. The Riolu and the magneton chased him only to be attacked by sandshrew people. At the last moment the threesome was rescued by a man named Obi the Alakazam, formerly known as Obi the Kadabra. When it was revealed that Rotom W had plans for a secret weapon they had to deliver to a contact on Galaraan, Rioluke realised Overlord Metwo would send his forces to retrieve those plans. He rushed home only to find it in ruins! Check the end of this post for links to the other parts.
Chapter 7: It’s on Galaraan
Princess Rita sat in her cell for Arceus knows how long when two cloned pokémon came to get her. It was a Zubat and a Bulbasaur, the last one roped her with his vine whip. It hurt her quite a lot, she had endured a lot of torture to loosen her tongue and her body was quite frail and cut still. There was this weird Pokémon that tortured her shaped like a lamp, it burned her with its ghostly fires while trying to look at her soul. It was quite horrible. She knew that if she that thing was praying on her soul and looking straight into it. She nearly told what she knew, she had to come up with a plan because surely she could not fool Dark Blader in this state. Rumors said he could read her aura with his dark powers. He would be able to spot deceit in her aura. She would have to pick something credible, something that would hurt her to mention. As a plan began to form in her head as a little of her soul died… at least Lampent would not get it now.
Princess Rita was led to a observatory in a huge space station. Helmed by some Drowzee as well as some cloned Toucannons who appeared to be the space stations gunners all gazed at her with a look of horror in their eyes, like they had a good idea on what would come next. Smogon Tar Chin took the lead and broke the silence. ‘We will not ask again , where is the rebel gym!’ His tone was vicious and disrespectful clearly not respecting her status as royalty. It was his tone that gave Rita some resolve. She would not be talked to this way by the likes of him. ‘Aah Smogon Tar Chin, I thought I smelled a poorly written reference from my cell but now that i am standing here I am still disappointed’ The Smogon set pokémon looked angry for a moment but then bit off with a smirk. ‘I would not have guessed you have a sassy nature “princess” you’d do well to be as talkative when the dark lord is asking you questions, you can’t keep pretending you have a quiet nature for long’ The Bisharp standing next to him looking menacing lifted his hands as the hypno clenched his throat. ‘You should not put ideas of being quiet into the princess head, if I have to spend more power points to make her talk I will make sure you’ll both regret it’. As Dark Blader turned his head to Rita , she suddenly felt as if her mind was being probed, an unseen assailant noticing her superficial thoughts. ‘Indeed princess Rita this is not going to end well for you anyway’
Princess Rita was running out of time, she had too make up her mind. She knew her plan would cost millions of life, would she have the strength to push through with it? She would have to sacrifice millions so that billions could live. Would she be able to say the words? She had no room to give this any more thought for he would pick up on her conflict. She HAD to buy time, she could not let hope be snuffed out. She thought about her adoptive mother and father and about all those pokémon out there in the galaxy she never met. Being on board of a weapon that allegedly was able to capture planets she knew very well what would happen next. Her pain would hopefully be enough to deceive Dark Blader. She took one deep breath and then uttered the words. ‘It’s on Galaraan, the rebel gym is on Galaraan’
Dark Blader looked at her menacingly, would it have been enough. ‘Set course for Galaraan’ he ushered. Rita shed a single tear not show her weakness to these two. She had just sacrificed her homeworld for but a glimmer of hope.
Chapter 8: Not the mons
Rioluke stood in distraught seeing his home ransacked, destroyed. His aunt and uncle gone. Surely they must have been send to Bill. He wept for their loss. Alakazam padded his shoulders and told him. ‘Rioluke, you are the son of a Pokéknight , you have to fight this pain, pain leads to suffering and suffering leads to the dark side of the aura. Rioluke was intrigued despite his grief ‘You are saying I could be a Poké Knight?’ Alakazam shook his head. ‘I am saying you may HAVE to become a Poké Knight in order for us to save the galaxy! Going against the overlord will be very hard otherwise.’ Anger still lingered in Rioluke but he could for some reason sense wisdom and truth in the words of the old man. He knew somehow that their journey would become a long one, for a moment Rioluke sensed it’s destiny. ‘How do we get of this rock though? I don’t have money for a spaceship, even if I can fly one’ Rioluke said in his squeaky voice. The Alakazam could not help but chuckle ‘Of course you would, your father was a great pilot as well, we will go to Phenac City and find someone who can move us past the overlord’s blockades. There should be plenty of smugglers. Rioluke nodded, he stared at his home for one last time before mounting his landspeeder along with his three companions as they raced towards Phenac City together.
After little over an half hour speeder ride they began noticing a growing presence of clone pokémon. Luke could have sworn he saw a cloned squirtle riding on a huge Salazzle, which is a big lizard but Alakazam swore there was nothing there. Rotom just bleeped at the discussion. 3-people translated this as. ‘Rotom W says that there have been several incidents of this occurring across the galaxy. People of younger generations seem to perceive the galaxy somewhat differently at times, often more lively and special, while the older generations see the galaxy more barren but often more vicious and raw. Yet he absolutely assures you that those people young people see in the background will never really interact much with the world.’ Alakazam and Rioluke still bickered for a bit who was seeing the world right but eventually they were approached by two cloned pokémon. Citizens two of your passengers seem to meet a general description of non organics wanted by Overlord Mewtwo, prepare to be searched. Alakazam smiled at them and showed him a spoon, waving it across the man’s face. ‘I would hate to waste your time officer, these are not the pokémon you are looking for’. The cloned pokemon shook his head confused for a bit. ‘That’s right, these are not the pokémon we are looking for! Move along citizens, glory to the overlord.’ The pale squirtle tapped the vehicle signalling Rioluke could drive into town. Which he did staring at Alakazam in awe. ‘How did you do that?’
Rioluke moved to town seeing all shorts of shady Pokémon. While plenty of law patrolled outside the town, as little seemed to dwell within. The most odd pokémon staring at him and his landspeeder. At least selling the vehicle off would not be very difficult, this should be able to pay for a flight from one of these shady folks. A shady penguin pokémon seemed very interested in particular. Alakazam noticed as well and told Rioluke. You just go inside that cantina and I shall sell the landspeeder, it might be best if you don’t .. know what they will pay for it’. Rioluke nodded, he would most likely not like the price his beloved landspeeder would be sold off for. Alakazam might squeeze out a few poké more with that mind stuff off his anyway. The non organics were tasked with making sure no one should steal the speeder, they could zap their attackers into paralysis. Rioluke walked into the cantina alone, where a catchy tune was playing being played by a group of elgyem.
Chapter 9: Who shot first?
The cantina was even seedier on the inside then the outside. As soon as Rioluke walked inside he was immediately the subject of some scrutinous looks. The little fighting pokémon was looking for someone looking like a pilot when he accidentally bumped into a Walrein.. a big Walrus Pokémon that seemed to be accompanied by a Pignite. The Walrein began barking at our hero in a language he did not understand. ‘I-I am sorry for bumping into you mister but I do not understand what you are saying’ The pig pokemon looked at him and snickered. ‘He says he doesn’t like you’. This made Rioluke quite sad, he just wanted to make new friends, he was still a baby pokemon after all who had no one in this world. And now this Walrein did not like him already. The pig saw him looking sad and let out a greasy sounding snicker again. ‘Hehehehe and I don’t like you either’ Rioluke began to cry a bit by the bullying. ‘I.. I am sorry.. you don’t like me’. Rioluke turned to the bar and ordered some Blue Blue Milk when the pig grabbed him. ‘I got a death sentence on twelve systems so be warned’ he said threateningly. ‘I .. I will be carefull, sorry you don’t like me mister’ the fox like kid says now fighting his tears more and more’. The pig motioned to the walrus to move in closer when that one was being struck by a large blue beam. Solid about one an armlength in size, eerily humming. The walrus began to colour red and was promptly send to the pc. ‘You killed my friend’ the pig yelled in panic. ‘Well you were threatening to kill my associate and all our weapons kill on first hit.. otherwise I would have just sliced a fin off.’
Meanwhile at a table in the back the pair was being watched by a hoodlum scarfty and his ursaring pal. While distracted by the death of the Walrein though they did not notice a little bug pokémon crawling onto a chair at their table when it readied it’s blaster under the table it coughed. It was a little orange yellow bug worm with a cute pink nose and a horn on its head. It was the most infamous weedle in entire Phenac city. In a very nasal tone it began to address the scrafty. ‘Shaun Yolo, how nice we finally see face to face once more.. Halva really wants his money now’ The scrafty sat back in the couch he was sitting on putting his feet on the table. ‘Ah Weedo, they let anybody in these days’ the hoodlum would say while pointing at the weedle but also pointing out Rioluke with his eyes. ‘Halva has put a bounty on you Shaun, and I think I will collect after all that stunt you pulled on me on Unovellia cost me a lot of money.’ The weedle moved his capture gun under the table unlocking it with a click.’ The bear pokémon next to Shaun roared. ‘Easy Bakka, it’s not like i’m in danger or anything’ the scrafty said while crossing his feed on the table and putting his hands in his neck. Weedo laughed ‘I would not be so sure about th…’ before he finish the sentence he was shot by a capture blast coming from a blaster Scrafty had hidden behind the couch. The little weedle faded away in red light while his blaster fell on the floor. Shaun did not really notice it anymore his mind was working overtime. “Darn it if Halva the Zygarde has put a bounty on me I have to get out of here. Yet my ship is locked away by those clone pokémon. Then he looked closer to the old man who just extinguished his capture saber after slaying the Walrein. Then he looked at the sniffling riolu and smirked. These suckers might be his way out. He beckoned over the Rioluke ‘Hey Kid, you look lost , how about we have a little chat’. Rioluke looked at Alakazam as he looked a bit worried. No twisting realities for each generation this time. ‘Should we even meet with him’ the young man asked Obi ‘ he clearly shot first!’
