Watchers Of The World
Chapter 1: New universe new lives
Hey there fan fiction community, Zak here, and I decided that rather than continue with my Altoshipping story (There are lots of them after all, that and it sucked) I would create my own Pokemon story with the help of a few buddy's. This story will have humour (albeit bad humour), drama, gore and hopefully a bit of romance. In this story none of the films have happened in the same way or they might not have happened at all.
Like in my Altoshipping things starting with (and) are just little comments
There will likely be first person and (mostly) third person perspectives in this story so if you want me to do anything particular to separate them in future chapters such as a line or multiple x's ect just tell me.
I do not own any characters from Pokemon or are a part of any company related to Pokemon I only own my OC's
Anyway this first chapter could be bad, In my opinion I suck at writing but I'll leave that for you to decide.
Have you ever heard of the multiverse theory? A theory that states that there is a universe for just about any conceivable thing. Universe's where Germany won the Second World War, a universe where the dinosaurs never died out even universe's revolving around video games and other variations of fiction. My names Will by the way and I, along with my friend Seren were reasonably firm believers that it could be possible although we did have our doubts, that was until one day...that changed our lives forever.
In a different and incredible universe on a planet not so dissimilar from ours, a lone figure was stood in what appeared to be a private study. The lone figure was Arceus, the creator and lord of the Pokemon universe. Arceus was under a great deal of stress at the moment, not only from trying to keep the current legendary's from arguing with each other and stopping them from destroying one of the planets he worked so hard to build but he also had to make sure that the newly emerging humans would be accepted in what little society Pokemon currently had. Arceus brought up his hoof (?) and placed it on his temple.
Arceus let out a heavy sigh "This is never going to work out" he said quietly
As Arceus went on muttering to himself a large figure quietly slipped into his study and slowly started to approach him. Arceus was still muttering to himself when a shadowy wing came to rest on his shoulder making him yelp in surprise and swiftly spinning round shouting "I swear I'll judgement your ass into next week you..." he stopped his rant as his eyes were met with the caring gaze of the so called renegade Pokemon Giratina.
"What's wrong Arceus?" Giratina asked in a soft feminine voice (In my story legendary's have genders)
Arceus put on a strained smile as he calmed down "Sorry...I'm just stressed that's all" he said
Giratina smiled softly as she spoke "Well that's understandable...it's not like many others have to go through creating an entire universe then choosing what should fill it"
This time Arceus's smile was genuine "Thanks" he said before a quizzical and surprised came onto his face before saying in a confused and shocked voice "W...wait...there are others like me?"
Giratina had an equally surprised look on her face when Arceus asked a question "What, you didn't know?"
"Well...no" Arceus said In a embarrassed voice "Wait..how did you find out anyway?" he asked
"Oh...well a while back Dialga and Palkia were having another heated argument which once again got violent, Palkia decided that she wasn't putting up with it and tried a dimensional shift as Dialga used that time roar thing, next thing we knew Palkia was gone" Giratina said
Arceus began to grow impatient "That still doesn't answer my question"
"I'm getting to that!" Giratina snapped "Anyway, after about four hours Palkia reappeared in my reverse world looking like she had just seen a ghost. It turns out though that when Dialga used that attack it transported her to what can only be described as a different world in a different universe...a world inhabited by humans"
"Humans? But they are only just appearing on the planet" Arceus said
"In our universe yes, but in the one Palkia visited they had been around for a very long time, oh and guess what" Giratina said
"what?" Arceus asked
"On their planet Pokemon are a completely fictional idea" Giratina said while chuckling to herself
"Wait so, we are just a figment of their imagination?" Arceus said in a confused voice
Giratina smiled "Yes, and from what I have heard they can watch our future on something called a television"
Arceus looked deep in thought for a few seconds "Do you suppose...no that won't work"
"What?" Giratina asked
Arceus looked slightly nervous "Well...we could um...borrow somebody from that universe to watch over the humans here as they develop and make sure other Pokemon accept them, you know, because they have seen our future perhaps they can help us make it right"
Giratina had a unsure look on her face but it was soon replaced with a cheeky smile "That's so crazy that it just might work" she said "But..how are you going to do it?" she asked
Arceus thought for a moment "Well I'll need a bit of help from Palkia but other than that I'll be fine, go back to the hall and I'll meet you there" he said
Giratina started to walk out of the room before turning around and looking at Arceus "Make a good choice, and good luck Arcy" she said before heading to the hall of origin.
Arceus continued to think for a while before a confused look plastered itself on his face "Did she just call me Arcy?" He shook of his confusion and a wide smile found its way across his face as he thought to himself "This might not be so bad after all"
Meanwhile in a universe completely void of living Pokemon two friends were ironically having a Pokemon battle on their DS's. Both these friends had largely different appearances and personalities.
Will Mason, he was 17, around 5.8 feet tall with short dark brown hair, dark green eyes and was lightly muscled. Will was the most mature of the two, had strong views on some things, was spiritual and was reasonably active but did enjoy being lazy, playing video games and watching Pokemon.
Seren Cole was also 17 and just about the same height as Will. He had long shoulder length jet black hair with red stripes (Seriously they have been there for years) and was slightly overweight.
Seren enjoyed drawing manga, watching animé and playing video games he did however get some exercise while trying to spar with Will.
Our two unwitting heroes had just finished of a battling session while sat on Serens couch, which had resulted in two wins for each of them.
"Well my friend, its been fun but I think I'll head off home now" Will said in a deep, British accent
Seren smiled "Ok man, see you tomorrow yea?" he said in a medium pitch voice with the same accent
"Yea sure thing..." Will was cut of as an intensely glowing light began to form around the room that they were sat in. Seren was completely speechless while Will managed to mutter "What the?..." before both of the friends passed out. After a very long amount of time passed Seren and Will both appeared in a blinding flash of light leaving them both in the hall of origin in front of a very surprised group of legendary's. The hall looked surprisingly nice considering it was essentially a giant cave, with patterns of different colours on the ceiling and walls along with many large pillars.
"See, I told you it would work" a very smug looking Palkia said whilst sticking her tongue out a Dialga who simply remained silent.
"Don't get cocky" Arceus said "We need to make sure they're ok first"
Giratina walked up to the sleeping humans and observed them closely "Well, their still breathing so we can at least be thankful for that" she said with a happy smile
Palkia shot Giratina a death glare "what do you mean by that" she snapped
"I'm just saying you could have been more careful" Giratina said with a cheeky smile
Will slowly started to wake up whilst lying on the stone floor.
Will was the first to say something "Urrgh...what the hell...Seren did you put something in my drink or.." Will stopped talking as soon as he saw his hands, they looked different than before, slightly 2D for lack of a better term. "Seren a swear to god..." was the only thing Will could say before he got up a was met with Giratina's face directly in front of his own. It took about five minutes for Will to finally say something.
"Um...hi" Will said in a highly worried voice
Giratina smiled "Hello, my name's Giratina" she said in a cheery voice
"I know, that's why I'm so freaked out right now" Will said with a slight chuckle before adding "wait...is this a dream"
"Far from it child" a loud voice boomed from behind Giratina as she moved out of the way to reveal Arceus, Palkia and Dialga all stood next to each other.
"Ok, seriously this is ridiculous" Will said with a look of awe on his face
"What's ridiculous?" said a sleepy voice from behind Will
"See for yourself" Will said, still in shock from the whole situation
"WHAT THE FUCK" and a thud were the only things that could be heard as Will turned round to see Seren unconscious on the cold stone floor of the hall.
"Is he going to be ok" said a now slightly concerned Arceus
"He'll be fine, maybe its for the best, less questions this way" Will said now slightly calmer
Will looked around for a few moments before speaking "So...your...Pokemon" he said in a awkward voice
"Yes, and we need your help" Arceus said in a calming voice
"What, how could YOU need our help?, your practically a god" Will said
"True, but I have an entire universe to watch over, contrary to popular belief I can't be everywhere at once" Arceus said in a cheeky tone of voice
"Heh I guess not, but that still doesn't explain why you need me and Seren" Will said
Arceus took a breath knowing that it would be a long explanation "Well humans are just starting to appear on this planet and I'm not sure if they will be accepted by Pokemon...a while back Palkia accidentally stumbled into your universe and saw your world and that you can see our future on something called a...television?"
Will simply nodded with a confused face to confirm Arceus's question and allow him to continue.
Arceus continued "I heard about this and thought that maybe...maybe we could bring some humans who know what might happen in our future, so that they can help things go right and watch over the humans as they grow and develop"
There was a prolonged silence before Will finally said something "You want me and Seren to watch over this planets humans? Surely there are others better suited for a job like this" he said
Arceus shook his head "No, there are not, you two not only have a good knowledge of what might happen in our future, but you are also kind of heart. Seren's kindness may be better hidden but it is there none the less"
Will sat down and started to meditate "Umm...what are you doing?" Giratina asked
Will opened one eye and looked at Giratina before quickly closing it again "I'm thinking" he said in a now calm voice "Give me a minute"
All the legendary's nodded in approval whilst Will was sat on the stone floor. About a hour passed before Will finally came out of meditation only to see Seren casually chatting with Arceus.
Seren turned round to look at his friend "Hey, welcome back to the land of the living" he said with a slight chuckle
"Well you've obviously recovered" Will said whilst walking up to Seren and Arceus
"Yea, I'm all calm, now that Arceus has explained everything" Seren said
Arceus looked at Will with a slightly sad look on his face "Will, I just wanted to apologise for snatching you and Seren from your own universe, it was rude and inconsiderate of me, you don't have to stay if you don't want to" He said whilst looking at the floor.
Will smiled "Hey don't worry about it, in my opinion you did us a favour, that place was on the way out anyway" He said before adding "Oh by the way, I accept" he said whilst grinning
"So do I" Seren said
Arceus's quickly looked at the two humans stood in front of him in disbelief over their sudden decision "Really? What about your past life?" he asked
Seren shrugged "That life was boring, it time for some adventure" he said
"But one thing" Will said "What about ageing?"
Arceus looked confused "Ageing?" he said
"Watching over the humans here will take a very, VERY long time" Will said
"Hmmmm, I see...step forward" Arceus said
Seren and Will both stepped forward only to have Arceus hit them with a blast of light which sent them both flying into a far of wall. Will and Seren both leaned up and started to cough
"Wow...that really hurt" Will said whilst glaring at Arceus "that better have been worth it" he quickly added
"Well considering neither of you will age and you can understand other Pokemon now I would say it was" Arceus said with a giant grin on his face as he walked up to them.
Seren and Will both looked at each other with looks of pure excitement and unparalleled disbelief.
Seren looked at Arceus with his mouth hanging open "Seriously?" was all he could say
Arceus grinned "Yes" he said
"Well...I...how? Will asked in confusion
Arceus smirked "Well like you said, I'm a god" he said slightly laughing at their the look on their faces.
Will kept the confused look on his face as he said "Wait, if we can understand other Pokemon now how could we understand you and Giratina?"
"All legendary's can talk, but only to those they trust" Arceus said
Will bowed a little before saying "Thank you for trusting us"
Arceus returned the gesture with a bow of the head "Its not a problem" he said before speaking again "So...ready to go?" he asked
"what, already?" Seren asked with a confused voice
"Don't we have to train of something?" Will asked in an equally confused voice
"If I had chosen anyone else I would have said yes, but judging from your sparring sessions it looks like you can take care of yourselves" Arceus said with a smile
"Well Seren, I suppose if your ready" Will said whilst looking at his friend
Seren simply nodded saying "You know it"
Arceus walked with the two friends to the end of the vast cave system which opened into an enormous ancient city. The three walked towards a seemingly normal wall where an enormous door opened before them revealing a luscious landscape of green forest and a bright blue sky both bustling with life.
"Beautiful" Will said quietly before he and a wide eyed Seren walked out and turned to look at Arceus
"Will we ever see you again?" Seren asked
Arceus smiled "Oh I'm sure we will be seeing each other very regularly" he said
"I'm looking forward to it" Will said whilst bowing his head one last time as the giant stone doors of the cliff face slowly closed finally blocking Arceus from sight. Seren and Will both stood still for a while, staring at the new world that lay before them.
Seren looked at Will with a smile "So...what do we do now?" he asked
Will turned to Seren with a slight smile "Now...now we get to work" He said as the two friends walked town towards the incredible forest...and a fantastic new adventure.
Well that's the first chapter out of the way. I apologise if its bad but I'm not that good with first chapters.
There will most certainly be more to come, the second chapter will be coming soon but I'm not overly sure how soon, I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
Give this a quick review if you want and stay safe out there
