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.

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.

The house was quiet. The wind blew over the calm ocean. The cliff that the house laid on was secluded from the rest of the City.


The door opened, and Caleb looked up from his Hobby of reassembling a pistol then, doing it over.

His mother continued washing dishes in the kitchen, her hair tangled and messy. Her apron wrapped around her waist.


Ken walked in with a Deadly Gaze. He walked to Caleb, and grabbed his wrist squeezing it.

"You! You little b****! You embarassed me with that performance! You k ow they blamed when you let that boy escape? Me! I get the blame, I get to punish you personally!"

He had undone his belt and was prepared to strike when, a resounding whip noise struck him.


Ken stumbled onto the wooden floor. Blooding flowing from the cut across his face.


His mother stood between the fallen soldier and her son.

She held a broken plate in her hand. The glass scattered on the floor.


Ken's face twisted in rage, he began to rise to and take vengence, but His mother grabbed the Unassembled Pistol handle and slammed it into his head.


He fell to the floor, disoriented. He began coming to pretty quickly, so his mother ran upstairs.


She brought a carry-on bag and shoved it into his arms.

"Mom, what's going on?"

"Caleb, it's time. I've waited for this opportunity, and we need to take it. Go with your stuff. There's supplies in there and clothes. Go! Now!"

She motioned him away.


"Mom, what about you? When he comes to he'll-"

"Don't Worry! Just Go! Don't Come Back! Be free!"

He ran onto the terrace and began climbing down. He'd go the longer way, since it would be harder to follow him.

"Many have volunteered, the problem now lies in deciding which candidates are most suited to the task they have signed up for." Mewtwo tells Yancy. "Ideally, we would want to seem generous in our willingness to sacrifice, yet not submissive or eager to let go of this war."

"...Which is why we need to decide who would be better put to other uses than the chopping block." Green finishes. "I understand that it must be suspicious, inviting you to join the herd after what you learned yesterday. But believe it or not, Mr. Doe, I'm here to ask you to reconsider."

-----

"Giratina is our target?" Birch asks. "This simplifies things... But also makes it more dangerous. Mewtwo won't be happy, or the strike team."

He chuckles a bit. "Either way, thanks for telling us. I hope you don't mind if we trace this call to be able to contact you again."

"You gave us this line. We'll be in touch."

Jupiter hung up. So, this is it then.

"We should prepare for any eventuality, not just Giratina. Ideally Lugia would be our target."

Mars helped Saturn take a seat as she started treating his injuries.

"You blew it up, didn't you?"

Saturn nodded plainly.

"And Ho-oh?"

"Out of commission. I recovered enough Rainbow Wings to use, but we do not have its assistance."

Jupiter turned to Saturn as well.

"Where is Eusine? And when will the Doctor return?"

"He's recovering in Agate, Orre possibly moving to Realgam. It would be dangerous to shelter him here if Nova decides to track him. And Celeste never spoke of his return."

Mars hid her disappointment, but then picked up another communicator.

"We'll continue without him then. I'm calling Xerneas, We should give Damocles a grand entrance at Nova's next move."

Jupiter scowled.

"Are you really calling it that?"

"You think of a better name!"

John Doe chuckled. "I'm flattered that you think of me too unimportant to throw away immediately, but my mind's made up. Like it or not, I'd rather myself in."

I'd only hesitate for the briefest of moments if you offered a bunch of movie posters autographed by Diantha, but that's neither here nor there.

I've found some new volunteers for the surrender. However, due to unforeseen circumstances, I will not be able to rendezvous with your soldiers until the surrender.

Katherine snickered as she looked away from her wrist computer and to the seats behind her where Grant lay on top of Meridia in a suggestive pose.

Destruction, destruction to end all! The universe, and human subconscious are willing their own end! This is the will of Metatron! Can you stop me?

"You won't even hear my offer? I thought you were more curious a man than that." Green observes. "If you insist on playing the tragic hero then I can't stop you. It couldn't cost that many lives, putting one of our best agents on the gallows."

She shrugs non-chalantly, at least seaming calm through her faceless mask.

"It would seem that one of our candidates can't make it..." Mewtwo adds. "She will be there for the broadcast, however. Perhaps you recall a young woman called Katherine? The successor N's partner, and the original's sister as it would happen... I believe she enjoyed your role as Crobatman, perhaps to an unsettling degree."

"Good, come right this way then." Commander Lewis tells Alan, ushering him into the back of an armoured vehicle. Two Nova Grunts wait in the back, one carrying a load of extra uniforms that all seem far too small for his use and the other with several gun and ammunition cases.

"Hey, you're the initiate, right?" One of the grunts asks.

"It was supposed to be a surprise, you numbskull." Lewis chuckles as he gets in back as well. He takes out a badge and hands it over to Alan proddingly. "Well, this ain't a proposal so I might as well not mince words. What say you sign on for Team Nova? You're just of age and I think you'd be a great service to your people. We've got uniforms for you to try on, and some of the this of the trade

"So Katherine is also volunteering..." muttered Yancy.

Zoroark's going to like this plan even less.

"Don't remind me", commented John Doe on Mewtwo's remark. "I'll almost pay to meet with a Code E.X.C.E.L. fanboy for once at this point." He turned back to not-Marisa. "As for you, now I'm truly flattered. Was that a hint of disappointment I heard? If I didn't know any better, I'd think you actually cared about what happens to me."

The fangirl inside Alan was going crazy. I mean Joining? It was an amazing offer. Why would he refuse? A voice somewhere said:"What would they do if I said no?"


" It would be an Honor sir. "Alan said as straight-faced as possible. He couldn't wait to tell Alyssa and Akemi.
