The figure scrolled. And scrolled. They read briefly, and sulked back into their seat.

“Disappointment. Boredom.”

Persian’s eyes widened, making a cooing sound towards the screen. The figure’s head turned back. It was Arceus.

A menacing grin melted under the shadows like a snake’s slither. The chair was pushed closer to the desk.

“Finally. Someone worth my time.”

The typing began, and Persian walked away.

Excellent. Truly, the most marvelous display I've seen here thus far. You've earned the highest honor I could possibly provide. I now grant all of your desires.

For @Kaori I provide:

TM 84 Poison Jab (10k)
TM 46 Thief (3k)
TM 18 Rain Dance (2k)

Press on, champion. :persian:

In celebration of every participant now having a legendary, we will be having a legendary ball!

During this ball, everyone will as many seating opportunities as they have had Legendary Pokemon. You will assign each of your Legendary Pokemon a number which will be the eat it takes. Once everyone is seated, a number will be picked and that legendary will be eliminated and you can no longer have it choose a seat. If all of your Legendary Pokemon have been eliminated, you are also eliminated. This will go on until there is one chair left. The person to have their Legendary Pokemon be the last one standing will receive a punishment as their prize.

May the odds be ever in your favor.

The game will take place here.

Checkpoint #06

Player: Kaori

~> Ran into Lucas at the entrance to Mt. Coronet on route 207. He gave me the VS Seeker and the Dowsing Machine.

~> Passed through Mt. Coronet towards route 208.

~> Defeated all of the trainers on route 208 but managed to preserve my encounter for now.

~> Headed into Hearthome City and met up with Mom in the Contest Hall.

~> Received the Contest outfit.

~> Headed towards Bebe's House and received God himself,


~> Headed towards the gym to take on Leader Fantina. I took out her first two Pokemon relatively easily with Spiritomb's Shadow Sneak. Mismagius' Shadow Ball did more damage than I expected and she even got the Sp. Def. drop, so I swapped out to Scizor to be safe and finished it with a Pursuit.

~> Received the Relic badge and the TM for Shadow Claw.

~> Updated my team's movesets, giving Brick Break to Metagross and Shadow Claw to Arceus.

~> Bought 5 Nest Balls and 5 Great Balls from the Hearthome City Mart.

~> Encountered a
but I misclicked and accidentally confused it instead of paralyzing. A crit Air Slash brought it down to just 1 HP but it broke free after three shakes and then proceeded to kill itself in confusion.

~> Trained up the squad to lv. 28

~> Evolved Roselia into
with the Shiny Stone.

~> Lost
to a critical hit Icy Wind from a wild Abomasnow while trying thief its Never-melt Ice.

"There's a Pokemon I'd like you to have!"

Sharon felt a sense of relief by the blonde's kind smile, hazel orbs fixated on the Poke Ball held out towards her. Was it okay to accept this gift? She had once again failed to capture the checkpoint, starting to doubt her abilities to do well in this game.

"Are you sure?"

"Yes! I truly believe you are deserving of this Pokemon. Go ahead."

The young trainer reluctantly accepted, slipping the Poke Ball inside her bag before thanking Bebe for what felt like the millionth time.

"Don't sweat it! Anyway, I have continue my work now. Why don't you go take on the gym? I'm sure Fantina will be overjoyed to have a new challenger."

Sharon nodded, bowing curtly before leaving the house to head towards Amity Square, a park-like area just North of the city. She figured it wouldn't be bad to let her Pokemon relax a little before taking on the gym leader.

Hey! Why don't you check what's inside the Poke Ball?

"Oh! That's a great idea! I wonder what kind of Pokemon Bebe was holding onto..."

She threw the spherical object into the air, watching it pop open as a bright flash of light engulfed the entire area. The clouds in the sky cleared up, the wind stopped and even time seemed to have come to halt for just a few seconds, her breath hitching.

The Pokemon she summoned from the Poke Ball was none other than a creature known to be God ー The Alpha Pokemon.



Arceus.

"A-A-Ar..."

Lord Arceus!

No need to be afraid, human. I have not come to harm you.

Sharon felt frozen to the spot, her palms shaking as she stood face-to-face with the impressive creature.

Human, I have been enjoying this game from afar and have decided that I shall aid you in this quest. Join forces with me and you will surely not regret it!

"Me...?"

I have assigned my underlings to all of the participants and the results were shocking. Manaphy used to be such a carefree, finicky spirit ー Always doing things at her own pace. Yet, under your care she has grown and overcome great challenges.

Thank you very much for your kind words...Lord Arceus!

After seeing the two of you fight together in your first checkpoint, I made my decision. Now...Will you accept my offer?

"Of course...! I'd be honored to!"

Very well. Let us walk this path to victory...Together!

Reminds people to send in rankings. Received three submissions of seven so far. Will send items out in approximately 48 hours or upon receiving all the rankings. Allows you to change your rankings until then.

May abstain, if so desired. Please send a message, in that instance. Do not dismiss the value in denying your opponents something, though.
