Twilight Sparkle sat in the Sugar Cube Corner having lunch with Spike. Pinkie Pie hopped over to Twilight and Spike's table with a huge smile on her face.
"More crystal cupcakes, Spike?" Pinkie Pie requested with the edge of a plate with 3 crystal cupcakes on it in her mouth.
"Thanks, Pinkie," Spike smiled with his tongue open like a dog to show how hungry and eager he was when Pinkie Pie put the plate on his side of the table. Spike picked it up and was about to gobble it down when he suddenly looked like he wanted to throw up. He then burped out a scroll which flew over the crystal cupcake and rolled over to Twilight's side, stopping when it hit Twilight's rainbow cupcake.
Twilight picked up the scroll with her magic and opened it. She saw it was from Princess Celestia of course. She read it aloud.
"Dear Twilight Sparkle,
Come up to Canterlot immediately, there is something important that I need to discuss with you and all of your friends. It will also help to bring your pet Owlicious with you as well, this is a very important and serious thing to discuss.
Twilight got up determined and walked over to the door. Spike got up from his seat too, but took the plate of crystal cupcakes with him, typical of Spike.
Twilight, Spike, Owlicious and the other members of the Mane 6 had made their way up to the Canterlot hall, where Celestia and Luna were waiting for them.
"Ah, Twilight and Co. Follow us if you please," Luna gestured. Twilight and Co. of course followed the two sisters into the sisters' room, where there was a portal which looked familiar to the portal to the human world, except the actual portal was red and white and the ring around it was grey. Twilight and Co. made an assembly-like crowd in the middle of the room, and the two sister stood in front of them.
"I'm afraid King Sombra revived from his last defeat, and he escaped into this world," Celestia frowned. Twilight and Co. gasped and Fluttershy intensely quivered.
"This world isn't the world you and Spike went into last time to retrieve the crown from Sunset Shimmer. This world is called PokeWorld, a world where mysterious creatures roam about and young people catch them to befriend and battle with them. As far as we know, he could bring those same creatures here as assistance to get revenge," Celestia explained. Twilight gasped and Rarity fainted, leaving Applejack to catch her.
"Sombra does not belong in this new world he calls home, neither do those creatures belong here. It could break the balance of either universes," Luna sighed. "Twilight Sparkle we want you to go into this world and bring Sombra back here, with the assistance of the creatures in that world," she added. Twilight jumped back at the idea of willingly TOUCHING Sombra at all. Celestia and Luna noticed this reaction.
"We realise we are asking a lot, but Sombra will not have his powers in this world. You only need to defeat him in battling his creatures with the ones you will obtain in this world," Luna grinned.
"However, Sombra is not one to follow rules, so if he does try to hurt YOU, just remember to be alert at all times," Celestia reminded Twilight. Twilight slowly walked up to the portal, with Spike following her. Of course, no-one had a problem with Spike coming along again.
"Now hold on a second!" Rainbow Dash shouted, flying over and landing in front of Twilight and Spike.
"If this is a different dimension, that means we can come along too, right?" she asked firmly. The Mane 5 rose up and grinned widely. Celestia looked over them for a second and shook her head.
"I'm afraid it doesn't. Too many of you going to another universe could also break the balance of the worlds PokeWorld and Equestria, along with the worlds between it," Celestia grimaced, causing the Mane 5 to groan in disappointment.
Twilight touched the portal with one hoof and the middle of it rippled. She nervously turned her head back to Celestia. Celestia blinked at her and gradually nodded, signalling for Twilight to go forward. Twilight took a deep breath and jumped through the portal, completely disappearing.
Spike anxiously looked at the portal and the sad face of Owlicious repeatedly. Spike heavily breathed and then came to a decision. He grabbed Owlicious by the tail and rushed into the portal holding Owlicious' tail.
"SPIKE, NO!" Everyone shouted, although they knew it was too late.
Twilight, Spike and Owlicious all flew out of a pool onto the ground. They assumed the pool was the entrance and exit to Equestria.
"Twilight, are you a human?" Spike said, observing his owner carefully. Twilight carefully approached the pool and looked at herself. "I guess so," Twilight replied.
Twilight was indeed a human, but she was not purple. She was white, light pink to be exact. Her hair stayed the same, except it was slightly longer. She was wearing what looked like a junior lab coat and a tie. She had a short purple skirt and thick tights.
"But…I have no idea what you are, Spike," Twilight remarked. Spike also approached the pool and gasped, but didn't scream.
"WHAT IN EQUESTRIA AM I?" Spike exclaimed. Spike looked like a light purple, vaguely slug-like pile of goo. The top half of his body is a lighter purple than its bottom half, and the two halves were separated by a squiggly, dark purple outline decorated with five green dots. He had beady eyes, and he had two rows of two horn-like structures on top of his head.
"Hoot," a deep voice chirped. Twilight jerked her head over to Owlicious. "What? Owlicious, you weren't supposed to be here…Owlicious? You look different…" Twilight commented.
"Hoot," Owlicious chimed.
"You…" Spike answered. Owlicious floated over to the pool too to look at his reflection. He looked like a round, owl-like bird with two stubby wings and a short, fan-shaped tail. He had large red eyes with beady pupils. His feathers were mostly brown with a beige underbelly. Owlicious had a large black, mask-like crest, which surrounded both eyes and covered the face. The two eyebrows on the top resembled the hands of a clock. The parts below the crest resembled the teeth of a clock. Owlicious had a small beak and two feet with five digits. His appearance was basically an obese Owlicious who collided with a clock.
"We look so different. Celestia never told us about this," Twilight moaned. "Spike, can you still breathe out fire?"
"I can try," Spike replied. Spike, still facing the pool, opened his slightly flat mouth and concentrated really hard. Then he breathed hard, only to see that nothing but pathetic bubbles came out.
"WHAT THE BUCK?" Spike screamed.
"Spike, language!" Twilight scolded.
"Sorry, but why has my fire been replaced with stupid bubbles?" Spike enquired rhetorically.
"Hoot," Owlicious squeaked.
"ME!" Spike shouted. At that moment, a tall child came over to Twilight. The child was clearly male, with black hair that looked like Einstein's but way shorter and smaller. He was wearing a cap where it was red from left and right, and white in the middle with a sign of a red circle in the middle of it, with two semi circles on front and under it with the same color. He was wearing a dark blue shirt, with a light blue waistcoat, and blue jeans with red and white Velcro shoes. On his shoulder was a short, chubby rodent with long ears with black-colored tips and arms with hands with 3 tiny fingers. The same was with his feet, except there were no legs and the rodent's tail looked like a lightning bolt with brown subtle streaks. He had two round red cheeks on his face.
"Hey there," the child greeted, holding out his hand for Twilight to take it. Twilight looked at his hand for a second and put hers on his, then let him help her up.
"I'm Ash Ketchum from Pallet Town, and this is my buddy Pikachu," the boy introduced. "PIKACHU!" Pikachu grinned. "So who are you?" he asked.
"Twilight. Twilight Sparkle," Twilight answered.
"Weird name," Ash commented.
"Pretty naïve, isn't he?" Spike smirked.
Ash didn't notice that Spike had just talked, neither had he heard him in the first place. "You look lost," he alleged. Twilight just silently nodded.
"Do you have a starter Pokémon," he asked another question. "If you don't, how did you get those Pokémon?"
Unfortunately, Celestia had not specifically named these creatures so Twilight didn't know what a Pokémon was, let alone a starter Pokémon. She took this as an excuse to say no.
"No, I don't have a starter Pokémon. And I…befriended these ones," Twilight improvised.
"Oh right…well follow me," Ash grinned. Twilight followed Ash, and Spike and Owlicious followed Twilight. They all got to a lab, and Ash stepped forward and knocked the door. A scientist opened the door and looked at Ash and Twilight.
"Ash Ketchum?" the scientist assumed, adjusted her glasses.
"Yes, and these are my friends. We're here to see Professor Sarm," Ash said.
"Right this way," the scientist gestured for them to follow her. They followed her to the back of the lab where there was an old man with a small afro and a lab coat with a blue shirt and jeans. He was wearing black and red Velcro shoes. He was standing in front of what looked like a machine with 3 balls which were red on the top, grey on the bottle with a white button in the middle.
"Greetings. I am Professor Mason Sarm, the professor of the Kiezi Region," the professor greetings. "These are your starter Pokémon; the Pokémon you will start out with on your journey."
"That makes so much sense now," thought Twilight. Professor Sarm then turned to Twilight.
"You have 2 Pokémon which you have befriended already, so if you want, I could just give you two empty Pokeballs and a starter won't be necessary," the professor requested.
"No no, it's alright," Twilight chuckled, waving her hand.
"Very well," the professor smiled. The professor clapped twice and three scientists came to his service. They walked towards the machine to grab a ball each, and then they walked away and sent each Pokémon out to the place of their Pokeballs.
What first came out was a mammalian, quadruped creature with primarily brown fur. The tip of its bushy tail and its large furry collar were cream colored. It had big pointed ears, 4 tiny legs, 3 smaller toes on them and a pink paw pad on each foot. It had big brown eyes and a small black nose.
What second came out was a small, blue, bipedal canine. It had black legs and torso, a blue tail, and a yellow collar. It had It has rounded bumps on the backs of its forepaws. It had a black "mask" and red eyes. It stood on toes instead of its entire foot.
The last one which came out was a quadruped, feline Pokémon resembling a lion cub or lynx kitten. Its front half was light blue, while the rear was black. There was a small tuft of fur on its head and smaller tufts on each cheek. It had large, oval ears with yellow, star-shaped markings on the insides, yellow eyes, and a tiny, red nose. When it opened its mouth, small fangs could be seen in its upper jaw. A black marking encircled its neck like a collar and there were yellow bands above its forepaws. The hind paws were black to signify that this creature was a male.
The 3 scientists went back to what they were doing and the professor walked towards the brown one. "This is an Eevee, the second one is Riolu and the last one is Shinx. Choose wisely," Sarm said.
Twilight looked at each Pokémon and wondered what she should pick…
