Pokemon Mystery Dungeon

Explorers of Another World

Chapter 1

"Gah! Gaaaah!"

Darkrai fell to the ground in defeat.

Cresselia gasped in wonder, "We…did it…"

Darkrai cried out in pain again, making Riolu and Pikachu jump.

"Urrgggghh!"

Cresselia darted forward with a look on her face that put a new meaning to the phrase 'If looks could kill'.

"This is the end for you Darkrai!"

She rammed into Darkrai, making him cry out in pain yet again.

"Urrggghh…", Darkrai sounded like he was getting weak, but he was still able to talk.

"C-Cresselia", he said, trying hard to form his words. "Don't you remember…?"

Darkrai pulled himself off the ground. Darkrai then spoke again, with a tone that said he still thought he won. "I said you… cannot catch me!"

And his eyes glinted maliciously.

Riolu, Pikachu and Cresselia all prepared for another attack, but instead of an attack, a blue vortex appeared behind Darkrai.

Everyone let out a cry in alarm, with Pikachu crying, "Hey! What is that?"

Riolu had a flash of recognition, seeing what the vortex was. 'It's a dimensional hole!' Riolu thought to himself.

Darkrai cackled. "Mwahaha… This dimensional hole may take me to the future… or the past. Even I don't know where it will lead me… Maybe even another world… But…! I've failed only in this time and place. I will simply plunge the world into darkness in another time and place."

Pikachu gasped, "S-Stop! Darkrai!"

Cresselia added, "You're not getting away!

The trio chased Darkrai to the dimensional hole, who stopped right in front of it, mocking them.
"Ugghh!" Pikachu cried in anger.

Darkrai scoffed. "Humph. Too bad for you. I can slip away through time with just one step." He paused for dramatic effect. "You cannot catch me."

"Ohh…" cried Cresselia frustrated at not being able to do anything.

"Good-bye to you!" Darkrai laughed.

Pikachu shook his head, not wanted to accept what was happening. "Urk…"

"Mwahaha!" Darkrai cackled again. "Well, how do you like that? Finally in the end… It ends in my ultimate victory!" Darkrai laughed.

"I WON'T ALLOW THAT," yelled a familiar voice.

Everyone gasped, including Darkrai.

"Wh-What?" Darkrai cried out in surprise.

The groung started to shake like a mini-earthquake, and there was a bright flash.

Everyone then stared at Palkia, who had appeared next to them. Riolu, Pikachu and Cresselia stared in surprise, and Darkrai in fear.

Darkrai stuttered out, "Y-You're-"

Pikachu broke in and finished for him. "P-Palkia!"

Palkia appeared to not have noticed them, and continued talking in a booming voice to Darkrai.

"YOU WILL PAY A GRAVE PRICE FOR EXPANDING THE DISTORTION OF SPACE, DARKRAI! THIS IS A STRIKE FOR JUSTIC E! TAKE THIS!"

Palkia then powered up a powerful attack, while yelling to the heavens, "GRRR-OOOOOO!"

The ground started shaking again as beads of light began to form at Palkia's mouth.

Darkrai yelled, "What… Waaaaaah!"

The ground shook harder than ever before as Darkrai vanished into the time hole.

"Darkrai!", yelled Riolu. "You can't get away!"

And Riolu dived into the time hole, closely followed by Pikachu.

Palkia hadn't noticed Team SoulSpark's disappearing act.

"THERE IS NO ESCAPE!" he bellowed as he sent out a blast at the dimensional hole. Cresselia, who had noticed Riolu and Pikachu cried desperately for Palkia to stop, but Palkia didn't hear. The blast made contact with the Dimensional Hole. There was a blast of white light, and in the explosion Cresselia barely make out the screams of pain coming from the tree voices of those who had entered the death trap.

Cresselia covered her eyes, and when the light faded away, she looked at the portal. It quickly turned gray and petrified, then shattered into dust.

Cresselia gasped.

'The dimensional hole', she thought. Speaking out loud, she croaked, "The dimensional hole completely shattered! With Darkrai, and Team SoulSpark still inside it!"

She looked around, before turning to Palkia. "I heard them scream, and I'm sure you did too. Did they disappear forever?"

Palkia turned to look at her. "NO. THAT HAS NOT HAPPENED."

Cresselia continued looking at Palkia with a desperate look on her face.

"Then what did happen to them?" she asked, while giving Palkia another look.

Palkia continued. "THEY HAVE SUFFERED GRIEVOUS DAMAGE… AND BEEN BANISHED TO SOME UNKNOWN PLACE, MAYBE NOT EVEN IN THIS DIMENSION. BUT, WHEREVER THEY MAY BE, THEY LIVE."

"But where are they?" Cresselia continued.

"I DO NOT KNOW, BUT I DO KNOW THAT DARKRAI WILL NOT LIKELY EXPAND THE DISTORSION OF SPACE AGAIN. I SHALL RETURN TO SPACIAL RIFT. I FORESEE NO REASONE TO EVER RETURN HERE. FAREWELL."

Palkia then transformed into a sphere of light, and was whisked away, leaving Cresselia alone in the Dark Crater.

"But Riolu, and Pikachu," Cresselia said to herself.

Then she turned, and slowly began to make her way back to Treasure Town.

Meanwhile, somewhere between worlds and time…

Riolu was spinning through the time stream, out of his mind in fear. Only seconds before, he had entered the dimensional hole after Darkrai, for fear that he would be able to make his world of darkness if he wasn't stopped. Only seconds after entering did he feel a wrenching pain all over his body, not coming from any clear source. He couldn't help it, and screamed out in pain. Then, as suddenly as it had started, it stopped. Riolu was left hanging in the blue void of nothingness. Then he felt a different feeling, started near his feet. Upon looking down, his saw that they had acquired a gray color, and that he could no longer move them. Discoloration and feeling zoomed up his legs, and with a flash he realized that he was turning into stone. Before he could do anything, his entire body was stone, with his face frozen in a position of fear. The Riolu statue was then desposited from the time stream, and started falling through the atmosphere of the planet he had appeared above. Before lone, one strand of fire stretched out behind it, followed by many more. The statue cleared the clouds, and started falling towards to only land in the middle of a wide expanse of ocean. It zoomed over a small town, an arena, dock, and hotel before landing in a small plot of dirt surrounded by trees. An eerie wind picked, and lashed at the dirt, until the statue was buried, waiting to be found.

Okay, I shall lower da bar. Please give me a least ten review, 'cause that would be nice. It doesn't have to be about Joseph Kony, but that'd be nice. However, I will try to update soon, because I've almost finished the second chapter.
