The premise (tl,dr version,credit to HHDeception. Edited by empireoffire):

10 years after BW2, an organization called Team Nova has taken over the world. With a technology called StarBurst, they can take over the minds of almost any pokemon on a whim, even through their pokeballs. Trainers are nearly useless. Most Gym leaders and Elite Four members are dead. Soldiers rose up to replace them. Weapons and technology are almost always preferred to a team of pokemon at your side.

StarBurst takes the form of an energy weapon, whether blasters, lightsabers, or halberds. NVE against a human, but instant mind screw to a pokemon. Only Legendary pokemon, or those with a very strong life-long bond to a human can hope to resist StarBurst. The more pokemon you carry, the more thin your bond with them is spread, hence you should probably only carry one. Two max.

There are three factions of resistance:

Xerneas: Team Plasma. They refuse to use StarBurst but will fight for peace regardless.
Mewtwo: What is left of the Pokemon League. They use StarBurst as a means to an end.
Yveltal: No formal organization until recently. Those who seek the destruction of Nova at any cost are sought out by Yveltal to be his agents. More members would be nice!

Nova is horribly OP, and pretty much nobody has a chance against one of the admins (Duncan, Celena) let alone the Leader (Maurice) one on one. They have the technology to wipe an island off the face of the Earth, and then some. GM and cyborg pokemon are not out of the question, but haven't really been explored yet.

Johto is Nova HQ, Kanto and Unova are also heavily guarded. Sinnoh and Hoenn less so. Orre is not under Nova control, and Kalos has been wiped off the map. Other regions haven't really been fleshed out yet.

Legendary pokemon are immune to StarBurst, but that doesn't mean people haven't captured them. You are allowed to have one as a partner, but not Ubers, and a lot have been spoken for.

As for trainers like Red, use them sparingly, but use them if you want. It is suggested you check the NPC list (which may be incomplete) to see who has already been taken.

"Now that I think about it, I did see something strange back in my house." Anton wondered aloud as he paced in a circle. "From what I have learned today, that must have been you!"

Gotcha!

"Prove it.Ask someone else who was there or something like that.Because there's no way it was me."

Just in case...maybe I should try to stop anything that might try reading my mind.I hope I can pull this off again...

Meridia was able to once again use mental barriers,but her head started throbbing again just as soon as she did.

Did I overdo it in that fight?That's probably why my head hurts,from exhaustion.But I have to keep it going,just in case.

"I have no idea where Diane went, so I can't ask her." Anton responded as he encroached upon Meridia. "However, I have noticed that you seem rather, weary. Did you get into a fight with someone?"

"What would make you think that?"she asked.

I know the burns on my face were minor enough to have disappeared after Wish,but I don't know if there's any more severe burns that are in plain sight.And then there's the wound on the back of my head,and it's possibly swollen...

Don't start paying attention to the little details now,when I need you to remain oblivious.

"You seem rather shaken, your legs are trembling slightly, and quite frankly, you look like you're about to pass out." Anton pushed up his glasses as he spoke. "That seems evidence enough."

"Why do you care?So what,maybe my boyfriend is a jerk.But that shouldn't mean anything to you."

There we go,finally a decent excuse.Hopefully he won't question it...

"Well, the evidence suggests that you are a rebel, and thus, I can arrest you right now." Anton spoke as he gave Meridia a leer. "But I won't, Elizabeth, if that's even your real name."

"Arrest me?Who do you think you are?!"

Meridia was very angry,and was ready to storm off any minute.

If this is what Saikou meant,I'm not sure what I'll do.But I won't let him take Keldeo if he's with Nova!

Back away before I have to hurt you,Neal.It's the last thing I want to do today,but I won't hesitate if it comes to that.
