It is a dark room, lit up by tens of hundreds of computer monitors. On a balcony overlooking the room stands a single man. His features are blocked by the darkness. His smile, however, is not. He is staring intently at the main monitor, on which is an ancient inscription and its translation.
"...The dragon granted his request, and in a single day, every war raging across the land was ended. The King, who had summoned the great Dragon, now stood as the most powerful king in the land, the true ruler of the land."
Yes, this was part of the Legend of The Dragon King and the Ten Heroes, but it was the part he was most interested in. The image disappeared, and in its place were three shadowy figures. "You know your mission. This power will be ours, and soon shall Viore!" The figures bowed, and blinked off screen. The man turned from the balcony, strolling calmly through a door behind him.
Intro[Welcome to the Viore Region!]
The Viore Region! A region like none before it, full of myth, legend, and known for its abundant numbers of Pokemon like none other. Trainers flock here every year in search of adventure and challenge. By sea and by air they come, hoping to better themselves and one day become a Pokemon Master.
It is in New Amber Town, a hub for the Viore Region, where trainers both old and new begin their Pokemon Journeys. No one knows exactly what awaits them, but then again, what's the fun in knowing? Learning is part of the journey, it is the journey, and the newest batch of trainers setting foot into the land of Viore will soon learn more than they ever thought possible...
Lily Meadows[Johto Flight 168 - Bound for Viore International Airport]
It had been a long few hours to say the least. A young girl, about ten years old, stretched and yawned as she woke up from her nap. This was Lily Meadows, a new trainer who was more than ready to get going on her Pokemon Journey. Of course... they had to land first. Her father sat next to her. He looked over as he saw his daughter stirring. "Enjoy your nap Lily?" Lily blinked a few times and looked over at her dad. "Slept like a rock, as usual. How much longer?" Her question would immediately be answered.
"Attention Passengers, this is your captain speaking. We are making our final descent into Viore International Airport. At this time make sure your seat belts are safely fastened and your tray tables are in the upright position as we make our descent. Thank you." Said the Pilot over the Intercom System. Everyone slowly did as they were told. Lily, in the window seat, took a gaze out and looked at everything she could see. Some town this was, this place might rival Goldenrod in scale! She wondered what kind of adventures she'd have here, new friends she'd make...
The sudden bump from the plane hitting the runway shook her out of her quick daydream. Slowly they rolled into the terminal where one of those walkways was attached to the plane. Finally the pilot spoke again. "We have arrived at Viore International Airport, you are clear to depart. Thank you for flying Johto Airlines." Everyone started standing up and gathering their things from the luggage compartment.
Lily grabbed a yellow backpack and started to leave when her dad put his hand on her shoulder. "You sure you don't want me to come?" Lily nodded. "Yeah, I'm not a little kid anymore, dad. I can do things on my own!" Her father smiled and nodded, and went back to gathering his things. Lily, meanwhile, joined the line disembarking from the plane.
Brent Ignia[New Amber Town]
After a long car ride, he finally set his eyes on New Amber Town. This is Brent Ignia, a now ten year old soon to be Pokemon Trainer. His dad was driving the car, and his partner, a little Cyndaquil, rode on his shoulder. "Well, I know the ride was long, but we're here." Said his father, pulling their car into a nearby parking lot. He got out and Brent was a little confused. "We're walking from here? Isn't the lab on the other side of town?"
His father chuckled. "You're going to be a Pokemon Trainer in just a little while, Brent. You'll be doing much more walking than this. Besides, when you're riding in a car, you miss some amazing sights." Brent accepted this. "You do have a point there." He got out and started walking alongside his father. He was taking them down the scenic route, along the outer edge of town. This path would take them by the Viore International Airport, it seemed. Probably hundreds of new trainers and coordinators flocking to Viore today.
He'd never been anywhere but Viore. His brother, whom he got the Cyndaquil from, had traveled most of the regions, currently traveling through Johto. He'd told him of the journeys, but he always wanted to see the world for himself. Now he might finally get that chance. Being a Pokemon Trainer could take someone just about anywhere. Of course, going alone would be boring. He wondered if he could find someone to go with him...
