A/N. Sorry I've been gone so long, I had to, once again, take an impromptu break from fanfiction. Again, very sorry for not updating anything in a while, and this is probably not helping my case any seeing as the fact you guys probably want me to update my stories with new chapters not start yet another fanfic, but I've always wanted to do a Naruto fanfiction, and until now, all my attempts failed so I gave up. After a sudden urge hit me, I decided to try again. I hope you all enjoy this, oh and before we get on to the summary, I'll be replacing Kurama/Kyuubi with another animal and demon of my choosing.

Summary: Long ago a fearsome, nightmarish beast attacked the hidden village in the leaves, taking many lives with it until it was stopped by the Hokage, the village champion. 11 ½ years later young Nari Uzumaki is about to graduate from the academy when her small world is turned upside down, made even more complicated when secrets best left hidden in the eyes of some are dragged into the open. One of which an ancient bloodline believed to have been lost with the destruction of an entire village during a war long gone by. What fate awaits the last of the Uzumaki Clan as she faces a world where only the strong and strong-willed seem to survive?

Warning: Fem!Naruto Fanfic, also this is a slight crossover between Pokémon and Naruto, and by slight, I mean the only thing that could make this even close to being considered a crossover is the fact that Naruto, or Nari as he or rather she is called in this fanfic, can sense and use Aura like the Pokémon Lucario. That is it.

Disclaimer: I do not own Naruto, and I never will in my life time. And my chances of owning Pokémon is about as existent as me waking up one day in the world of my all-time favorite shows and videogames. In short, never gonna happen in a million years. A girl can dream though can't she?


Prologue: Sacrifice and Death- Birth of a Jinchuriki!

There was fire everywhere as trash and debris littered the ground, making it even more dangerous than it already was to walk across what could very well pass as a war zone…

"It's getting closer!"

The monster, a beast of pure golden and saphire energy known as chakra, growled and roared fiercely, it's rage quite clear on its face as its nine great tails lashed about, expression twisted to near insanity…

"Hang on! Just a little bit longer!"

The corpses of many littered the grounds, dyed red with the blood of the many fallen soldiers and civilians who had met such an unfortunate end…

"Where's the Hokage?"

In a cloud of grey and white, a powerful summons, a toad of epic proportions, appeared, a man with striking blonde hair standing proudly atop its head…

"It's the Hokage! We're saved!"

In the man's arms, he carried with gentlest of care, an infant baby, just born and already experience the violence that so plagues this world…

"Sorry to call you up for this Gamabunta-san, but I need your help with what I'm about to do."

The great toad seemed to gaze forlornly at the giant beast,

"They always said that one of these days you'd lose your mind Kyuubi…"

The infant gave a single harsh cry, a flash of light, and all was over, the great beast defeated by a single man and a jutsu so powerful it required a sacrifice of life…

"It was nice knowing you Minato Namikaze..."

The man falls from the sky, landing as gently as he now gradually weakening body will allow. The infant still held as gently as possible in the man's arms…

"I'm so sorry it had to be this way…. Could you ever find it in yourself to forgive for leaving you like this, and after placing such a heavy burden on you?"

The man collapses, dying thanks to the sacrifice he has made for the village he was supposed to, and succeeded in, protecting…

"Heh, you look so much like your mother… I pray that the villagers treat you well, good bye, and good luck little one…"

Nari…
