2BIT is a sky blue fox from a special pocket dimension. This realm, known as Byte Space, has a strange, digitized look to it, but it is more of a cosmic place where the denizens monitor and manage the destinies of various other dimensions within the multiverse. They are largely offshoots of other "prime" universes that fall out of Byte Space's jurisdiction, but that doesn't make the job any less demanding. So, in order to manage, 2BIT split his own psyche into several other beings, able to help him carry out his duties in several places at once. They form up a team known as "BIT Squad."
Today, 2BIT sits at his clear, digital desk, looking into the world of GeneX Prime through a dimensional window. "Well, at least one version of Sonic is doing sort of okay... I don't wanna think about what the source-prime Sonic is going through now." he mutters. A black tiger with white stripes approaches his desk. He has gray eyes, but you'd swear they were red with anger. "TWO!! Where's the yearly update on GeneX Necros!?" he snaps. 2BIT swivels his floating seat and scratches his head. "There's nothing scheduled for GeneX Necros this year, 16BIT. Cerberus is dead. War's over. Let them find their own destinies for a while." he muttered. "Don't be so lazy! That world still has tons of reconstruction needed! ...And I'm not gonna do it!" 16BIT said, crossing his arms. 2BIT's tail flicked as he rolled his eyes. "Yeah... I'm the lazy one... Who was it that set the path for the rest of GeneX Prime's year?" he muttered. A kooky blue haired man in an alligator costume suddenly butted in. "Was it me!?" he asked, eager to take the credit. "Gah! Gator... I mean, 5BIT! What are you doing here??" 2BIT groaned. Gator glanced at the fox and the tiger and shrugged. "Fiiiirst... It's Infinity-BIT! And anyway, it's bring your pet to work day! So... I brought my... Hey, where'd he go??" Gator said, looking around frantically. 16BIT looked a bit panicked. "You brought an OUTSIDER in here!? CODE RED!! CODE RED!!" he shouted, running off in a panic. "Why couldn't you bring your pet to one of your other jobs... Well, what is it?" 2BIT asked. Gator scratched his head. "Hmmm... Which was it again?" Suddenly, a jet of flame chased 16BIT across the digital hall! "Oh, yeah! It was my Salamence!!" Gator grinned. "Of COURSE it was!!" 2BIT groaned.
As the fox and the crazy human chased the dragon Pokemon, they passed a room where miniatures of the denizens of each reality were kept neatly on shelves. "Gah! Not the Control Model Hall!!" 16BIT shouted. "You mean the voodoo chamber..." 2BIT snickered. "Bad Salamence! Down! Sit! Roll over!!" Gator shouted. Instead, Salamence swatted his tail across the hall, making the trio duck and knocking a miniature version of Knuckles the Echidna off a shelf.
Somewhere in a Sonic-based reality, Knuckles suddenly stumbled down the steps of the Master Emerald shrine! "Ooof!! Ow!! Hey!! Sonuva!! Yoooow!!" he wailed as he tumbled to the bottom. He groaned as he picked himself up. "What the heck?! WHO DID THAT!?" he yelled, glancing up at the Master Emerald. "Tikal...? Chaos? ...King Boom Boo...? ...S-some days I hate this job..." he muttered, shivering a little.
Back at Byte Space, Gator was busy teleporting around, trying to get Salamence's attention, while 16BIT was scrambling to catch the "voodoo dolls" before they could fall. 2BIT, meanwhile, materialized a dark blue helmet on his head, and carefully approached the dragon Pokemon. "I understand, Salamence... You feel lost and confused... Don't panic. We'll send you home..." Ignoring 2BIT's words, Salamence used Dragon Claw and knocked the fox on his helmet, sending him spinning backward dizzily. "Gator, d-does he have a Poke Ball?" he groaned. "Oh, right!" Gator said suddenly, "Salamence, return!!" In a flash of red light, Salamence vanished into Gator's Ultra Ball. 16BIT growled as he held a handful of "voodoo dolls." "YOU MEAN YOU COULD HAVE DONE THAT ALL ALONG!?" he roared.
2BIT calmly returned to his desk as Gator fled from their supervisor. "Just another day monitoring the multiverse, ho hum... Geez, I wonder how many back injuries I have on my hands now?" he mumbled.
