The Adventures of Shaymin
The sun always bright as can be shining its bright golden beam upon Shaymin’s face. This to Shaymin was like an alarm clock saying “get up.” Shaymin arose from her slumber. She sat up and recalled yesterdays emotionally tiring events as she rubbed her eyes. The one thing that kept eating at her was the so called Golden Gracidea.
“Maybe I can ask Arceus about it today.”
Shaymin jumps out of bed. She puts on her shoes on and runs out her room. Shaymin notices that many if not all the legendaries were gathered around Arceus’s throne.
“Hey guys what’s wrong?” Shaymin asks
Giratina turns around and glares at Shaymin “You!”
Giratina throws a shadow ball at Shaymin. Shaymin’s eyes go big as it barrel towards her, but her lightning fast reflexes kick in and she does a long jump into the air. She does a slow mid air flip and falls back to the ground landing with a light tap of her feet.
“What the heck was that?!” Shaymin screams brushing a hair out of her face.
“It’s all because of you Arceus is gone!”
“Giratina stop!” Latias says jumping in front of the angered legendary.
“No it’s all cause of Shaymin Arceus is gone now!”
“Arceus isn’t gone!”
“Could someone explain to me what’s going on?!”
Latias walks over and gives Shaymin a note.
“Arceus went after a Team Galactic assault. They were going to destroy the Hall if. If he succeeded then he would have been back by now.”
Shaymin reads the note then looks up.
“Can’t you all just go get him?”
“Arceus is the strongest legendary alive. If she was taken down then we only have one choice left.”
Giratina jumps back in “You’re not talking about?”
“Yes. Arceus said if anything were to happen to him then we were supposed to use the Golden Gracidea as a last defense.”
“Are you kidding me Latias! This runt couldn’t possibly learn how to use it in time!” Giratina says pointing at Shaymin.
“I’m standing right here!”
“We have no choice. I am taking Shaymin to it now.”
Latias grabs Shaymin’s hand and drags her out the doors to the lush gracidea fields.
“I’m sorry for Giratina. He and Arceus are close friends.”
“It’s fine. You really think I can understand the Golden Gracidea fast enough to save us?”
“I do. Now I can’t enter this place with you. No other Legendary is allowed to enter only the chosen one. Good luck.”
Latias flies away and back into the Hall of Origins.
Shaymin takes a deep breath of air “Ok I got this.”
Shaymin almost instinctively put her hand up. The ground began to give way until a giant hole formed. She with no hesitation jump in the hole closing behind her. She slides down a long dirt slope the walls becoming less dirt and more flower filled. Shaymin finally lands in a large room filled with Gracidea flowers all over the walls and ground. In the middle was a Gracidea plant with golden flowers that emitted gold particles.
“That must be it!”
Shaymin runs over. Closer inspection reveals the flowers to be made of crystal. Shaymin puts her hand out and caresses the plant. The plant responds and the flowers dissolve into gold dust swirling around Shaymin’s arm and into her chest.
Shaymin’s eye’s shoot open. She sits up. She is in the field of the gracidea flowers near the Hall. She stands up.
“I got to get back to the others.”
All of sudden Shaymin feels a large blast of energy and pain hit in her in the back. She blacks out. A pokemorph dressed as a Typhlosion stands behind Shaymin grinning widely. He steps out farther picking Shaymin up. This reveals his entire costume to be blacked almost seeming as if he was corrupted. He talks into a microphone that he was apparently wearing.
“Capture was a success. Heading back to base.”
The lone Pokemorph jumps onto a special thin board Shaymin over his shoulder. The board begins to hover and he takes off. Latias comes out to see if Shaymin had done what she had to.
“Shaymin are you done?”
Latias freezes. There was no sign of Shaymin nor was there any sign of a struggle.
Shaymin began to stir as she heard the sounds of mumbling and other noises.
“Oh my head. Why does this keep happening?!”
Shaymin opens her eyes fully to discover that she was no longer at the Hall of Origins, but she was at some kind of base or lab to be exact. She tried to move her arms, but they were tied to the top of what looked to be some sort of pod. Her feet were in the same position.
“I see the great Shaymin is awake!”
Cyrus walks out of the shadows of many doctors who surrounded the pod Shaymin was contained in.
“Cyrus.” Shaymin says her expression full of anger.
“You did well Project Alpha.”
The Typhlosion from earlier appears out from behind Cyrus. “I did. didn’t I?”
“Who in the name of Arceus are you?!”
“I’d watch that temper Shaymin. If you must know I am Project Alpha better known as Sirius.”
“Well Sirius why don’t you let me out so I can kick your butt!!”
The dark Pokemorph chuckles “I think I’ll pass. Besides I have to get ready for the assault on your precious little home.”
Shaymin’s eyes widen.
She struggles against her bonds in a fit of rage “DON’T YOU DARE TOUCH MY FRIENDS!!!!”
“I’ll be sure to say hello.”
“All remaining galactic members move out!” Cyrus says pointing out the door.
Shaymin continued her struggle as she watched them leave. She finally gives up after awhile. Tears began to form in her eyes as images passed through her mind.
“I failed my mom, my dad, Arceus, the legendaries, my friends. Everyone is going to die all because I failed to uphold my duty as the savior of this world. I was supposed to be here years ago and I failed to do so then. Now everything I have known and everyone I have loved are going to die.”
She slowly began to think of each individual Pokémon, Pokemorph, or person she had ever met. She rose her head up.
Shaymin’s voice turned fierce and strong.
“I will not lose! I can do this! I just have to believe.”
Shaymin in an instant began to have gold dust particles flow around her. A large beam shot down from the sky breaking her pod. She floated into the sky slight before curling into a ball then stretching out. Her cheerleading uniform began to strip away and reform. Her skirt became white with a gold trim as well as her shirt. Her gracidea flowers turned glowing gold. The beam subsided as she opened her eyes her pupils were no longer green, but gold instead.
“Time to go.”
Shaymin in a burst of speed shot through the roof of the base and into the sky.
Giratina stood on Arceus’s throne amongst all the legendaries who were chattering away.
“Legendaries and Pokemorphs! This will be the darkest hour we have all ever experience for our last hope of saving this world has gone up and vanished. We must stand firm and fight together!”
The other Pokémon at this point were quiet and knew it was coming.
“Who will fight with me?!” Giratina says raising his hand.
“I will!” Latias says stepping up.
Alaina along with Michael, Giackobe, and Pinky step up as well. “We will!”
Slowly one by one the legendaries stepped up till not a single one wasn’t standing.
All the Pokémon go out to the front entrance only to find something that blew their little rebellion out of the water. Giant frigate warships began appearing out of the sky unending. They were all the same model and sporting the Team Galactic symbol.
Giratina looked back at the other legendaries who looked down in sadness. They were all hugging one another. Giratina saw the ships charging what could have been a sort of giant laser beam. He closed his eyes. The ships fired their lasers. Giratina closed his eyes waiting for the end to come, but out of some sort of miracle a portal of gold opened up in the sky. Shaymin came bursting out and speeding towards the Hall. Just as the lasers fired Shaymin put up a giant golden shield that shield the entire Hall of Origins from the attack. Cyrus who was drinking some sort of beverage at the time did a spit take.
Cyrus coughing managed to choke out “What?! Impossible!”
Shaymin turned around to the other legendaries. Then back at the ships.
“Legendaries and friends! CHARGE!”
Shaymin sped forward doing an in air barrel roll toward one of the ships punching right through it. She dodged a nearby wing and ran across the one behind it to gain traction then jump back off releasing an energy ball into the hull of the ship.
Cyrus screamed “Shoot her out of the sky! I want that Shaymin dead!”
Shaymin noticed the cannons taking aim and barrel rolled dodging multiple shots. She used bullet seed across the hull of another ship bring it down.
Cyrus slammed his fist on his console and turned to Sirius “Take care of her now!”
“Will do sir.”
Shaymin aims her sights toward the flagship of the Armanda. Shaymin flies next to Giratina.
“You think you can take the rest out yourself? I gotta pay my friend Cyrus a visit!”
Giratina holds a thumbs up signaling Shaymin was clear. Shaymin speeds toward the ship disabling the defense cannons. Once they were rumble Shaymin slams into the flat top of the ship kneeling on the ground her fist touching the floor. Sirius comes out from behind one of the cannons clapping. Soon more galactic members holding guns pointed at Shaymin came out of hiding.
“I see the Shaymin managed to figure out the Golden Gracidea.”
Shaymin looked at each galactic member. She was completely surrounded. There was no way of attacking with getting injured and if she got injured there would be no way she could take on Sirius alone. She was stuck.
“No way out. Just give up.”
Shaymin was about to speak when large rayquaza came flying over head. Four specks dropped down from the giant Pokémon and onto the deck. It was Shaymin’s friends.
Giackobe came around to Shaymin. “You miss us?”
Shaymin not relaxing one bit or taking her eyes off Sirius responded “You have no idea. Say could you guys help me a little.”
Alaina chimed in “That’s why we’re here!”
Shaymin raised up a golden dome shield that protected them all from the gunfire. It wasn’t till the clicking of guns was heard did Shaymin lower the shield.
Alaina charged first spinning on her toes under a Galactic guy who swinged his gun at her. She spins in to the air and kicked the guy into the ground. Giackobe jumps over Alaina rolls and slides knocking another off her feet. Michael and Pinky were back to back surrounded by many attackers. The two look at each other and nod. Michael and Pinky lock arms as Michael spins around allowing Pinky to kick the members over in a circle knocking them out. Giackobe and Alaina come up. Giackobe goes up to Michael and bro hugs him while Pinky and Alaina hug. They all stare at Shaymin and Sirius which their battle had yet to start.
“I have been waiting a long time for this you stupid Shaymin. Your dad sure was eager to hear you were alive after I told him.”
Shaymin’s eyes widen as her gold aura grew brighter. She charged forward and jumped over Sirius as he did a flame punch. She slide kicked him off his feet then jumped into the air launching an energy ball right into Sirius. Shaymin slide backward waiting silent for the smoke to clear. Out of nowhere a blaze of fire came out of nowhere. Shaymin wasn’t quick enough and it scorched her. She fell to the ground panting.
Sirius walked up to Shaymin “Your kind is not made for fighting.”
Alaina was about to jump in, but Michael blocked her.
“Shaymin can do this.”
Shaymin looked up. She jumped forward tackling Sirius over the shipside.
“I’ll prove you wrong!”
Shaymin sprouted her wings and launched off Sirius sending him flying down into the depths below. She punched straight through the hull of the ship and landing next to her friends.
“We need to leave now!”
Giackobe did a backward flip transforming into a pidgeot. Shaymin made sure everyone was on Giackobe before showing him the signal to take off. The ship began going down in flames as the cleared the blast radius. Shaymin didn’t look back. They all arrived back at the Hall of Origins. Shaymin landed her gold glow fading away, but her clothes remained white except the gold trim faded away to a bright pink. All the legendaries were surrounding around something. Shaymin walked over to discover Arceus was lying on the ground. She pushed through the legendaries and kneels on the ground.
“S-Shaymin. I have been waiting for you.”
“For me?” Shaymin looks to Latias who nods.
“I am not the true Arceus.”
“What are you saying?!”
“I am a copy created by the real one to help guide you. You must reawaken the real me at Spear pillar to continue your journey. Be warned I am not aware of the recent events nor will I be as accepting as the real me.”
With that Arceus fades away into gold particles that fly away into the now night sky.
