The Eclipse of the Sun and the Moon
Chapter 1: In the Beginning, Two Cosmogs Are Born
In the world of Pokemon, there is a sun. The sun brings not only light unto all of the Pokemon that it shines upon, but it also brings rays of hope, peace, and happiness to every Pokemon fortunate enough or curious enough to gaze at it. It is a signal of an up-and-at-´em spirit inside of these Pokemon as they go about their lives, introduced to new faces that they have never seen before and interacting so with them. The sun, itself, also bears a Pokemon that looks to it as an icon; as a symbol of good in the world, a symbol of true beauty... An image appears in front of the sun, having the form of a lion and a bold appearance. This Pokemon, a Solgaleo, stands tall, honoring the sun for its existence.
And while this world may bear this sun, on the other end of things, there is also a moon. A moon that brings out the nighttime for Pokemon everywhere, though it will still shine its own light every so often. This moon brings to the world tranquility, rest, and ease that the day is now over to every Pokemon fortunate or curious enough to stare at it. It is a signal to some Pokemon that it is now time for them to go to sleep, and to others, it signifies that there is still more to do. From the howls that it draws out of wolf Pokemon to the chirps from Kricketots and Kricketunes alike, this moon also bears a Pokemon with it. A Pokemon that looks to it as an icon, a thing of true beuaty, and a symbol of good. This Pokemon floats around, staring at the moon, drawn to it. Looking at this Pokemon up close, it has wings like that of a giant bat, a head that cups in the further up it goes, and crescents on the tips of its wings and tail. Under its wings, there lay two sets of two stars. This mysterious Pokemon, Lunala, honors the moon every night for its existence.
And there is peace throughout the day and night... Or so you´d like to believe. Every so often, these two Pokemon have their little... quarrels with each other; constantly fighting with each other over which is better, the sun or the moon. But how did it start? How could such Pokemon have bitter feelings towards one another? They both come from the same line of evolution, so what caused such a rivalry between them? Well, this is where we have to go back to the past to piece together events that led these two to go on their own paths. Let´s start from the time that these two were born.
A long time ago, both Solgaleo and Lunala were born onto the world. They appeared to the Pokemon as little Cosmogs, and they were certainly an intriguing pair to everybody who had laid eyes on them. They looked a lot like some sort of celestial children as they had purple bodies with a ring going through them. On the top ends of their bodies, they had little blue clouds of celestial matter attached that had what looked like stars dazzling for everyone to see. Reactions from Pokemon everywhere came by as they started saying the following:
"Awww... Look at how cute those two are."
"Do you think Arceus made them himself?"
"I wonder what they´ll evolve into in the near future."
"What are they? They seem like they´re from another world."
"Praise be to Arceus for the creation of two beings destined for greatness."
Most of these reactions and more kept on coming by and by. For the two Cosmogs, it was hard to phantom what all of these Pokemon were saying, but they didn´t seem to pay too much mind to it at the time being. Instead, they let out some bright smiles and floated up to everybody, waving to them as if to say, "Hi" to them all. For the time being, they were really happy that they were welcomed into the world by so many happy faces. They then turned and looked to one another, then smiling ever more brightly. Born at the same time? Yes. Almost like twin siblings. But could they be in for a turn of darkness or a turn of light? The answer remained to be seen...
