I kept my promise. I didn't think I would, but I did. I finished before Juky ended. The FINAL concluding chapter of this ENTIRE story. I hope those of you who read enjoyed it and will enjoy this.
"I'm sorry. I have to go now." Gothitelle prepared to teleport, before she was struck by a vine. Snivy was in a battle stance.
"How about we battle to decide whether or not you tell us where Piplup is." Snivy said. Gothitelle nodded.
"I hope you enjoy never seeing your friend again." She responded.
"You guys go ahead, I'll handle this." Snivy told her friends.
"Okay. But be careful." Oshawott said. Snivy smiled.
"Just don't slow them down Oshy." She said. Oshawott smiled and nodded. The other three took off in the direction of Piplup.
"Okay Gothitelle, are you ready?" Snivy asked.
"I've been ready." Gothitelle fired a Psybeam from her hand and stunned Snivy.
"Is that all you've got?" Snivy used Leaf Tornado to spin out of the Psybeam and knock Gothitelle into a wall. Gothitelle soon recovered and used Psychic to lift Snivy into the air. Snivy charged up and released a Leaf Storm. Upon taking said attack, Gothitelle released Snivy from the effects of her Psychic. While she was stunned, Snivy ran up to Gothitelle and used her Vine Whip-Leaf Blade combo attack. The speed and force of the attacks knocked Gothitelle to the ground.
"My my. We sure are fast aren't we?" Gothitelle said while breathing hardly.
"Are you kidding? This isn't even half of my speed." Snivy boasted.
"Well all that speed must come with a price." Snivy shivered.
"With your speed and attack being that high…your defenses must be low!" Gothitelle formed a large purple and blue ball above her head. She threw the Psyshock attack at Snivy and blasted her into a wall. Snivy shook herself off and began charging another Leaf Storm attack. Gothitelle used another Psybeam on Snivy, causing her to lose concentration.
"One more attack and I'm out." Snivy whispered to herself. "I've got to make this next attack count." Gothitelle formed another Psyshock in her hands. Snivy ran as fast as she could. She got behind Gothitelle and used her combination attack. Gothitelle fell to the ground, but quickly recoverd and stood back up. She fired a Psybeam from her hand. Snivy then used Leaf Tornado to dodge the Psybeams and then rammed into Gothitelle, knocking her unconscious.
"Oh…oh…oh." Gothitelle moaned. Snivy walked up to her.
"I won. Now where is Piplup." Gothitelle laghed evilly.
"I'm so sorry, but I left him in the hands of Haxorus." She said.
"This attraction is called Power Bash. I wonder where they took Piplup." Tepig said. Suddenly the doors to the attraction opened. Pikachu, Oshawott and Tepig looked at each other in confusion. They decided to go inside. A Haxorus was in the back; waiting for them.
"Hey, do you know anything about a kidnapped Piplup?" Pikachu asked. The Haxorus smiled a small smile.
"Maybe I do, maybe I don't." he replied.
"Just what is that supposed to mean?" Oshawott yelled.
"The only kidnapped Pokémon I know of is this one." Haxorus pulled his hand from behind his back, which revealed that he was holding Victini.
"Victini!" Tepig shouted. "Let go of my friend!"
"I'll let her go only if you beat this attraction." Victini sweat dropped.
"I'm a boy." He said in a quiet annoyed voice.
"Fine, I'll play this attraction to save my friend." Tepig said. "You two go ahead."
"Okay." Pikachu said as he dashed off again. Oshawott glumly followed.
After several tries, Tepig had eventually cleared Haxorus' attraction.
"Okay, Haxorus. Now beat the attraction. Now let go of Victini!"
"Not so fast. If you want to save your friend, you must defeat me in battle as well."
"You never said that!"
"I just did." Haxorus eyes began to glow a dark red color. His body was outlined with the same color. He charged at Tepig using an Outrage attack. Tepig was tossed into the air and landed on his back. He saw Haxorus running up for another attack. Tepig used Flame Charge to boost his speed and avoid the attack. Tepig ran behind Haxorus and used Flamethrower on his back. However, Haxorus appeared to take no damage, as he turned around to hit Tepig once more.
"Man, he's really strong." Tepig moaned as he looked back at the large dragon-type. Strangely, Haxorus wasn't trying to attack him. He was looking around with a dazed expression.
"Tepig, Haxorus is confused due to using Outrage. Go attack him now." Victini cried out.
"Okay." Tepig stood up and ran behind Haxorus. He used his combo attack along with several Heat Crashes. Eventually, Haxorus snapped out of confusion and used Dragon Tail on Tepig. He flew out of the area they were battling and down the stairs.
"Give up?" Haxorus asked, mocking him. Tepig didn't even respond. Instead he climbed back up the stairs while panting. Tepig used Flame Charge to quickly run up to Haxorus and use his combination attack. Haxorus began to use another Outrage attack, and Tepig tried his best to dodge.
"Tepig! Come here!" Victini yelled. Tepig slowly got up and looked over to his friend. Unfortunatley, Haxorus came around to strike him with another Outrage attack. Fortunalty, he was knocked over to Victini. Victini looked at Haxorus and saw that he'd become congused. He took this time to quickly grab his injured friend's tail and began to give him some energy.
"Victini, what…are you…doing?" he moaned.
"Shhhh, hurry up before he snaps out of it." Tepig got up and ran behind Haxorus. He started with Flamethrower aimed at Haxorous' legs. Then he followed with a strong combo attack, whick knocked him off of his feet. Lastly, he jumped in the air and used Heat Crash. Tepig landed on Haxorus' back and the match was decided.
"I beat you Haxorus. Now release Victini." Tepig said.
"Fine, take him. I don't need him anymore."
"And tell me where Piplup is."
"Piplup? Oh the little blue guy. As far as I know, he's been sent back to Cofagrius as a hostage."
Pikachu and Oshawott walked to the other side of Wish Park. The attraction they arrived at was very familiar to them, Cake Contraption. In front of the attraction stood an actual cake.
"Wow, look at that thing!" Oshawott exclaimed.
"Who'd leave a giant cake in front of the attraction?" Pikachu wondered.
"Me!" A deep, dark sounding voice said. Out of nowhere, Cofagrigus faded in front of Pikachu and Oshawott.
"You!" Pikachu used a Thunderbolt attack, but Cofagrigus blocked it.
"You're the one who stole Piplup!" Oshawott said. "Where is he?"
"That's none of your concern." He said, floating to the top of the cake. "If you want me to tell you where he is, you'll have to knock me off of this cake." Oshawott took of his scalchop and prepared a Razor Shell.
"I'll do it. Pikachu you go find Piplup."
"I'm already ahead of you!" Pikachu shouted, as he had already taken off to the center of Wish Park.
"If you want to knock me off of this cake, you'll have to get past my Yamask." Cofagrigus added. Out of nowhere, large groups of Yamask began to appear. They fired simultaneous Shadow Balls at Oshawott. He tried to dodge, but his speed couldn't compete with the speed of multiple attacks being fired at once.
"I'm sure this is cheating." Oshawott said to himself as he rose to his feet. He used Razor Shell to knock away the closest Yamask that were surrounding him. He used this chance to run to the cake and use his Razor Shell combo on the cake.
"Yamask, stop him!" Cofagrigus commanded. Another tribe of Yamask appeared and began to attack Oshawott with Shadow Balls.
"Since I can't outrun them, I'll have to think of a new plan." Oshawott said. He jumped into the air to dodge the Shadow Balls. Once there were no attacks being fired at him, he used Razor Shell to knock away more Yamask.
"No matter how many you defeat, I have ten more that will return in their place." Cofagrigus laughed. While he was gloating, Oshawott used Razor Shell to knock off the entire bottom layer of the cake.
That took longer than it needed to. There has to be a way to make this easier. Oshawott thought as more Yamask appeared to attack him. Oshawott jumped to dodge oncoming Shadow Balls that ended up hitting the cake, rather than him.
"That's it!" Oshawott exclaimed. He used Water Gun on the last two layers of cake; running completely around it to make sure they were soaked entirely.
"What is the meaning of this?" the ghost-type yelled. Oshawott used Razor Shell rapidly. The cake was so soft that it literally got sliced to pieces. Cofagrigus fell face down on the ground. As Cofagrigus looked up, he saw an extended Razor Shell in his face.
"Now where is Piplup?" Oshawott demanded. The Coffin Pokemon smirked.
"He's with the Wish Park Master now."
Pikachu was getting tired of running. He began to slow down and walk to the center of the park.
"Now what do I do?"
"Leave. Now." A voice said.
"Who are you?"
"I am the master of Wish Park. The soon-to-be dark ruler of the world. The Pitch-Black Pokémon." A large, leg-less, black Pokémon appeared before Pikachu. "I am Darkrai."
"You're the master of this place?" Pikachu asked before getting on all fours. Electricity sparked from his cheeks. "Where is my friend Piplup?" Darkrai emgulfed Pikachu and himself in a dark portal. They reappeared in a throne room. Darkrai pointed to the chair.
"He's right over there." Pikachu was ecstatic. He had finally reunited with Piplup. He jummped up on the throne and hugged his old friend.
"Pikachu, you came! I knew you would!" Piplup said happily.
"Piplup, you're okay! This is great! Charmander, Chikorita, Oshawott, Snivy and Tepig will be thrilled to know you're safe!" Piplup pushed Pikachu back.
"Pikachu, have you ever wanted to be with your best friend…and play forever without anyone bothering you?" Pikachu tileted his haed in confusion.
"I finally realized…in Wish Park that can happen." Piplup said with a smile on his face. "Pikachu let's play in Wish Park. You and me forever and ever!"
"Piplup…what do you…" Pikachu stammered.
"Pikachu, you've been my friend for a really long time. All I want to do is play with you forever. Why can't you understand that?"
"I…I'm really…" Piplup pushed Pikachu off the throne and jumped down himself. He was surrounded with a dark blue aura and tackled Pikachu. Pikachu flew through the air.
"Piplup! What's wrong with you?" Piplup ran closer for another attack, but Pikachu used Thunderbolt and knocked him out. As soon as this happened, Tepig, Oshawott and Snivy ran into the room.
"Pikachu, what happened?" Ohsawott asked. Pikachu didn't answer. He focused his attention on Piplup. Piplup opened his eyes and looked around.
"Piplup?" Snivy asked.
"Are you okay?" Tepig added.
"I…I…" Piplup began, before he and the others looked up at Darkrai. He flew back over to his throne.
"I never would have imagined you would break my spell. So your bonds of friendship are that strong?" he said. "It seems my only remaining option is to force you to yield." Darkrai rose into the air and immediately fired a Dark Pulse at the group of Pokemon. They all barely dodged.
"Hey! You didn't even give us a chance to prepare." Snivy huffed. She jumped into the air and used Leaf Tornado on him. Darkrai fell lower, but nessacarily hit the ground. Oshawott moved in next and used his Razor Shell combo on Darkrai. Before anyone else could use an attack, Darkrai teleported behind them.
"Resistance is futile." he said firing an array of Shadow Ball attacks. Tepig used his Flame Charge to dodge the Shadow Balls and get close to Darkrai. He used Flamethrower to knock Darkrai to the ground. Pikachu finished Darkrai off by using a powerful Thunderbolt.
"We did it!" Piplup exclaimed jumping up and down.
"We? I don't remember you doing anything." Snivy said in a joking matter. Piplup rubbed his head and sweat dropped. The Pokemon walked up to Darkrai, when the room began to shake.
"What's going on?" Tepig said. Darkrai began to grow about 8 times his original height.
"What the heck?" Oshawott yelled.
"He's huge." Piplup said in awe. Darkrai formed a massive Dark Pulse and fired it at the Pokemon. They all tried to dodge as fast as possible. The Dark Pulse ended up destroying the pillars surrounding the room.
"Everyone, attack at once!" Pikachu yelled. The others nodded and began attacking. Pikachu started off with a Thunderbolt, stunning Darkrai. Oshawott added a Water Gun to add to the pain of the shock. Snivy used Leaf Storm and Tepig used Flamethrower to add some extra damage. Darkrai was on the verge of fainting. He used another Dark Pulse, but Pikachu's team was prepared. They ducked as low as possible, while at the same time, crawling closer to Darkrai. He stopped his attack once he realized he hadn't done any damage.
"Now finish him off!" Piplup cheered. The group was directly in front of Darkrai's stomach. Pikachu used his Iron Tail combo, Oshawott used his Razor Shell combo, Snivy used her Vine Whip-Leaf Blade combo, and Tepig finished with his Ember-Flame Charge combo. Darkrai beagn glowing and then shrank back to his normal size. The Pokemon walked closer to analyze him.
"Is it over?" Oshawott asked.
"I think so." Snivy replied, patting him on the back. All of a sudden they heard the sound of bells ringing.
"What's that?" Tepig asked.
"It sounds like the four bells of Wish Park." Piplup responded.
"The sound of the bells destroys the spell." a voice said. Darkrai had regained consciousness.
"What do you mean?" Pikachu asked.
"Everyone who was previously trapped here, are now freed." He responded.
"Yes. You've made me understand that forcing someone to stay with me doesn't relive my loneliness. Only friendship of free will can truly fill the void. Thank you." Darkrai formed a portal under Pikachu and his friends' feet. They we engulfed in a bright light.
Everyone seemed to be floating in space. It was like they were in a different state of mind. Like they were flying through air.
"Pikachu, are you okay?" a voice asked. Pikachu sat up and saw his friend Piplup standing in front of him. With him were Snivy, Oshawott, Tepig, and his old friends Chikorita and Charmander.
"Huh, what's going on?" he asked in a tired voice.
"Darkrai sent us back home." Oshawott said. Pikachu looked around to see that they had returned to Cove Town.
"You guys saved all of the kidnapped Pokemon." Charmander said.
"And you all fought and defeated Darkrai to save Piplup." Chikorita added smiling and waving her leaf with happiness.
"This is graeat, but what are you two doing here?"
"We heard that Piplup had been kipnapped and you were trying to rescue him." Chikorita said.
"We came here to help when you guys went back to Wish Park. But apparently you beat us to the punch." Charmander laughed.
"So what will you guys do now?" Pikachu asked.
"I think I'll be retuning with Chikorita and Charmander to the other Pokepark." Piplup said. "I need to rest and relax in my own home."
"I'm going back to Samurott to report a case well solved." Oshawott said with his hand on his Scalchop.
"I guess I'll have to go back to my mom in the Arbor Area. But maybe I'll play some games before I actually tell her I'm back." Snivy said giggling. Oshawott sweat dropped.
"As expected from you." He said. Everyone laughed.
"Anyway, Victini and I are going back to train some more in the Colosseum." Tepig said.
"That's great." Pikachu said.
"And you Pikachu?" Snivy asked.
"Hm. I think I'll go with Piplup and the gang. I think I could use more rest than anyone." He said.
"Well, I guess this is good bye for now." Tepig said.
"And see you soon." Charmander added. Everyone hugged one another and then went their respective ways.
Yeah, a pretty suckish ending, but it doesn't matter. I really missed Charmander and Chikorita so I thought I'd bring them back for the final chapter, even if they didn't do much :) So once again, I hope you all liked this Pokepark adventure.
