A/N: Finally gonna put an end to all the sadness I've inflicted on my readers! XD

Declaimer: I don't anything that isn't mine.

Summary: It's time…To finally say goodbye.

They're Gone…

{I always needed time on my own
I never thought I'd need you there when I cry
And the days feel like years when I'm alone
And the bed where you lie is made up on your side

When you walk away I count the steps that you take
Do you see how much I need you right now}

So many years have passed since the great battle between the Dex Holders and Team Plasma ended…

Many were injured that day, and some even lost their lives in the battle.

But their sacrifices will never be forgotten.

And their memories will remain in the hearts of their loved ones forever…

{When you're gone
The pieces of my heart are missing you
When you're gone
The face I came to know is missing too
When you're gone
The words I need to hear to always get me through the day and make it ok
I miss you

I've never felt this way before
Everything that I do reminds me of you
And the clothes you left, they lie on the floor
And they smell just like you, I love the things that you do}

Together everyone gathered near Lake Verity, the very place where the Legendary Pokémon; Mesprit, was rumored to guard.

Legends say that since Mesprit is the Pokémon of Emotion; the Lake is said to help heal the hearts of those with pure intentions and emotional distress.

And today; that legend will be put to the test.

{When you walk away I count the steps that you take
Do you see how much I need you right now

When you're gone
The pieces of my heart are missing you
When you're gone
The face I came to know is missing too
And when you're gone
The words I need to hear to always get me through the day and make it okay
I miss you}

Everyone who knew those who had departed long ago had bought white roses to offer to those who sacrifice their lives so that others may live on.

The only exceptions were Silver, Crystal, Red, Cheren, Ruby, Sapphire, Pearl, and Platinum Berlitz.

Silver chose a pink rose to offer, since it's his sister's favorite flower and signature color.

Crystal had chosen a yellow rose to offer, since the rose is often portrayed as the flower of love and its color reminded her of Gold's eyes.

Red chose a sunflower, since it reminded him of how happy Yellow had made him feel all those years they've known each other.

Cheren chose a yellow tulip, since it was Bianca's favorite flower when she was still alive.

Ruby and Sapphire both decided to offer a white tulip in honor of their fellow Hoenn Dex Holder; Emerald.

And lastly; Pearl and Lady Berlitz, had finally agreed on offering Dia a white chrysanthemum in his honor.

The eight Dex Holders slowly moved forward, four of them quickly held each of the flowers close to their hearts.

Tears had begun to fall and soft cries were slowly being heard.

Today was a sad day indeed.

All the pain and sorrow that were kept hidden all these years have finally been let out.

{We were made for each other
Out here forever
I know we were, yeah Yeah!}

All I ever wanted was for you to know
Everything I do, I'd give my heart and soul
I can hardly breathe I need to feel you here with me, yeah!}

Suddenly; something miraculous happened.

Just as the eight Dex Holders were about to place the flowers in the water; six balls of light shot out from the Lake.

Everyone's eyes widened in both fear and surprise as the balls of light began to take shape.

It was them!

It was the six other Dex Holders who had perished long ago!

The Listener, Nina.
The Breeder, Gold.
The Healer, Yellow.
Not forgetting Emerald, Bianca, and Dia as well!

Although, even through all the years that have passed; none of them has had a change of appearance.

The only change was; they were all pale white as snow and all wearing white clothes.
Not to mention; they were floating in mid-air too!

Nina slowly made her way towards Silver; her chocolate-brown eyes sparkling with joy and life just like when she was alive.
Tears began to trickle down the Exchanger's cheeks, he couldn't hold back any longer; he quickly embraced his sister.

The Listener hugged him back of course, and just like her brother; tears began to trickle down her pale cheeks as well.

Crystal couldn't help it anymore either; she quickly wrapped her arms around Gold's neck and cried.

The Breeder couldn't help but smile as he held his first and true love in his arms one last time, something he's wanted to do ever since they parted.

Without even a second thought; Yellow quickly wrapped her arms around Red's torso and cried.

Red was at a loss for words, but hugged back the girl he first loved nonetheless.
She was with him again, that's all that matters now.

Cheren quickly pulled Bianca close and held her tight, something he wished he had done a long time ago.

Bianca couldn't help but smile as she cried in Cheren's embrace, finally; she was with him once again.

Emerald was quickly ambushed in a hug by both Ruby and Sapphire once they saw him again; it almost seemed like a family reunion to the three of them.

Pearl and Platinum both embraced Dia as soon as he was in arms reach, both of the Sinnoh Dex Holders couldn't help but cry after seeing their old friend again.

Dia cried too as he hugged them, oh how he's missed them both.

And although they were merely watching from the sidelines; the remaining four Dex Holders could only watch and smile at the happy reunions happening before them.

Blue couldn't help but wipe away the tears about to fall; this only made Green pull her close in comfort.

Black lovingly held White close as she broke down and cried tears of joy for her friends.

Even N, who had once fought against the same Dex Holders before, couldn't help but shed a few tears of happiness for this one miracle they were all granted.

{When you're gone
The pieces of my heart are missing you
And when you're gone
The face I came to know is missing too
And when you're gone
The words I need to hear will always get me through the day and make it ok
I miss you}

But alas; all good things must come to an end.
It's finally time to say goodbye…
…Once and for all.

Silver slowly pulled away from his sister's embrace and handed her the pink rose he had brought for her.

Nina couldn't help but smile as she closed her eyes and held the flower close to her heart.
Just then; a pair of angel wings sprouted from her back.

She quickly flew over to her younger brother and gave him one last hug.
And after giving him one last peck on his cheek; she slowly started to fade away a snow-like light.

"Silver…Don't forget; Neechan will always be here for you. I'll always be there to protect you no matter what. I love you little brother!"

Gold held Crystal tightly one last time.
He then kissed her passionately on the lips before his wings had finally made their appearance.
Crystal quickly wiped away her tears before handing Gold the yellow rose she had brought.

The Breeder smiled at her one last time before disappearing the same way Silver's sister did.

The Capturer couldn't help but smile as she touched her lips and blushed, remembering how warm his lips felt against hers.

"I love you with all my heart Crys, never forget that!"

One by one; the same thing was happening between the remainder of the Dex Holders.

Yellow and Red soon parted ways after the Fighter had given her the sunflower and soon after sharing the kiss they had both longed for all these years.

"I love you…Red-kun."

And although they did not kiss; Cheren held Bianca close one last time before placing the white tulip in her hand.
And just like the others; she disappeared.

"I will miss you Cheren, I love you!"

Ruby and Sapphire hugged Emerald one last time before he too disappeared.

"Bye Ruby! Bye Sapphire! Take care of each other, alright?"

But to the remaining Sinnoh Duo; letting Dia go wasn't exactly easy.

Both Pearl and Platinum held on tightly to Dia's hands, all the while crying their hearts out and begging him to stay.

After a while; he was finally able to convince them to finally let him go.

He hugged both his best friends close before finally disappearing as well.

"Bye Missy! See you Pearl! Take good care of each other okay?"

And so, the miraculous event ended.

But, something had definitely changed…

The crowd surrounding the Lake no longer cried…

…But were now smiling.

They had just witnessed a miracle.
And it was quite a beautiful one indeed.

Miracles do happen.

It's just a matter of whether you are willing to believe in them or not.

[A/N:] Phew, finally finished this!
Yes, this is the final chapter.
No, I'm not doing anything else for Emerald.

This is REALLY the last chapter of this sad series.

Well, I hope you enjoyed it!
