    Quick note: This is my first RP, so if it's bad, that's why... Anyways... > >

    Introduction
    Legends say that once every 1000 years or so, a mystical Pokémon descends from the heavens. Wherever it descends, it stays for only seven days before returning to the heavens for another 1000 years. During it's stay, this Pokémon is said to be able to grant any wish asked of it, from the simplest to the most extravagant. This power is limited, however, as depending on the wishes asked, it can only grant a maximum of three, as wish-granting is an incredibly taxing power.

    This Pokémon is Jirachi.

    Our story takes place in the Sinnoh region, before humanity has built it's major cities. The cities are little more than towns or villages at this point, so the number of humans here is small. Essentially, this is before Sinnoh is modernized. Wild Pokémon from all regions live here. Some have even formed communities in the most secluded of areas. You will be one of the Pokémon in one of these communities. This community is West of what will become Hearthome City and is known simply as "The Hearth".

    The Sinnoh region has also been ravaged by a series of disasters lately. Unnaturally powerful storms, diseases that have taken many, and prolonged droughts are just some of the many bizarre phenomena that have happened. Many Pokémon believe that the humans have brought these curses with them.

    What begins as any other regular day turns into an extraordinary adventure when you are called upon by the magestic Cresselia. She is looking for a group of Pokémon to search for Jirachi so that she can have her wish granted. What that wish is, she won't reveal right away.

    However, Cresselia is not the only one looking for Jirachi. Other forces lurk in the shadows with their own desires in mind. Some seek nothing more than power. Others have far more sinister intentions.


    It will be a dangerous journey. Do you have what it takes to rise to the challenge?​

    "Remind me again why we have to go to this stupid meeting," the Espeon huffed to her companion.
    "Because, Lea, we are obligated to do so," the Beheeyem responded. The two were making their way to the center of "town", so to speak.
    "But Cerebrum they're SO boring!" Lea protested. She hated the weekly meetings that their community had. Almost always about the same things, all long and uneventful. She often tried to skip, but Cerebrum insisted that she attend all of them.
    "They are not boring," he replied, "they are about what is best for all of us. What we need to do to improve our lives. You find those things boring?"
    "When we never get anything done, yes," the Espeon said. "There's all this talk about 'We should do this' or 'We need to fix that', but nothing is ever done."
    "Because none of us seem to be willing to make them happen," the Beheeyem countered. "They just need motivated."
    "Sure they do..." Lea said with a roll of her eyes. The pair continued their trek.

    The community was known simply as the Hearth. It was a pleasant little village of sorts, a place where Pokémon of all kinds were welcome. It offered protection from both the elements and the humans. Many Pokémon managed small businesses here, such as herbal shops or trading posts. Some Pokémon simply made the place a stop along their greater journeys. Others stayed there for longer periods of time. Every week, the Hearth's leader, an old Alakazam, held meetings to discuss what needed to be done to improve the place. Everyone was obligated to attend without exception. Most Pokémon thought of the meetings like Lea did: dull, uneventful, and relatively pointless. None of the residents wanted to do much of anything recommended at the meetings. They were too concerned with their day-to-day lives to worry about the future.

    The reason for this attention was due to the condition of Sinnoh at the time. For at least three years now, the region had been and continues to be ravaged by a series of unnatural occurrences. Powerful storms, widespread disease, prolonged droughts; you name it, it probably happened at some point. No one knew the cause, not had an answer. All they could do was carry on their lives and just deal with them. After all, what can a single Pokémon do to change an entire region?

    The meeting was going to be held in a few minutes, and Lea and Cerebrum still had a decent ways to go before they arrived. "Can you pick up the pace a little?" Lea urged. She was impatient.
    "I thought you weren't interested in going," Cerebrum replied. "Besides, I'm moving about as quickly as I can." He could only float so fast, you know.
    "Yea, well, I just want to get this stupid thing over with," Lea explained with a sigh. "I have a bunch of things I need to do today." Indeed, she did. She often helped the residents with whatever they needed help doing. Hopefully she could find some of the Pokémon on their way to the meeting and ask them if they needed any help with anything.

    "Put me down now you savage beast!!" Eeks whined from atop Ezra's hat shaped head as they flew high in the sky, on their way to the "town square" of The Hearth. The two loners didn't leave right in The Heart, but outside it. They were still considered part of the community, however. Ezra had often helped passerbys find their way to the townsquare- Well, he tried to. Sometimes the smaller Pokémon were scared off by Eeks. "Why do I gotta go to this stupid meeting?!"

    "Because it's required you go, Armin." Ezra"I sighed as he edged close to the Hearth. "It's required that everyone go. You've been putting it off for too long, and I now think you are old enough to take full responsibility and go."

    "It's EEKS!" The tiny Rotom snapped back. "And you don't tell me what to do, no one tells me what to do! I am the great Eeks, mighty tree sorcerer!"

    "Mighty tree sorcerer, eh? And where is your tree?" The older bird Pokémon mused. Eeks' tree had been cut down and used as a house. "Last time I checked it was a house- one that you share with humans."

    "I-I don't share! They're my slaves, and I am currently trying to get rid of them because they aren't doing a good job at doing what I want!" He huffed, his tiny face in a grumpy frown. "Now let me down or I will shock you!"

    Ezra turned his head sharply to look at Eeks, a frightening look on his face. He was using Mean Look. "You will do no such thing, Armin. You're going to attend this meaning and behave. These Pokémon might even be able to help you get your "tree" back." He stared hard at the child, trying to get his point across. The tiny ghost Pokémon shrunk behind his head, obviously frightened, though he tried to keep his voice steady.

    "O-Okay, okay! I'll go to this meeting.. I'll grace these Pokémon with my presence!" He said in his childish voice. In truth though, Eeks was nervous about meeting these Pokémon. He'd never gotten along well with others. He'd never really learned how to act around them. Ezra was helping him learn, though, as much as he hated to admit it. He mumbled quietly "and hope that they will help me get rid of the humans.."

    Ezra caught the little mumble, but didn't say anything. Though it displeased him that the humans took his home, he wasn't overly upset with them. They didn't try to tear down the new tree he lived in. If anything,he found the humans funny and interesting- they weren't the least bit afraid of Eeks. They found the little plasma ghost quite cute. Eeks hated that, of course.

    Looking below, Ezra caught sight of the Hearth. "Hold on," he murmured to Eeks as the began to descend somewhat rapidly to the ground. Somehow the ghost managed to hold on with his bolt-shaped arms. As they zoomed towards the ground, Ezra landed on a wooden post with a little more force than he intended. He didn't lose his balance, though. "We're here."

    Eeks floated up beside Ezra, spinning around in a circle, admiring the Hearth. He'd never been before. "Wow.." he didn't imagine it to look like this! Friendly and open, various amounts of Pokémon species living in harmony. There were even a few human houses in the distance. Little shops of herbs and other things were scattered about. Eeks whined. "How come you've never taken me here before?!" Ezra just sighed.

    "Thank you!" Emory chimed, as she collected a leaf that was rolled up, chocked full of berries, in which she'd obtained from a stand run by a Bellossum. It would be her lunch- yum! The young Delcatty was just passing through the hearth, one on of her many travels. She'd yet to find a decent place to nest for a short while, but she was beginning to like the Hearth quite a bit. As she turned from the stand, she noticed a bunch of Pokémon beginning to gather.

    She timidly made her way over to the middle of the Hearth, where the Pokémon were gathering. She sat down and unrolled her leaf filled with berries and began to eat. She noticed a Rotom eyeing her and her food from next to a Honchkrow. She smiled at the child. "Would you like some?"

    "Mmmm-mm!!" Eeks cried excitedly as he zipped over to the pretty Delcatty. He picked up to of her berries and munched on them at the same time, making a mess of himself. Emory giggled. "Don't choke, okay?" She chimed.

    "Yeah yeah, lady." He heard a squawk from behind him, no doubt Ezra's way of reminding Eeks to say 'thank you'. Eeks grumbled. "Thank you." He stayed floating next to the young lady as they shared her lunch. Emory wondered why so many Pokémon were gathered there.

    Walking on a dirty dark path filled with trees towards the Hearth was a Psyduck, this psyduck was known as Striker or the hermit.

    "I hope i can find the answers that I'm looking for at this meeting" said Striker to his self as he continued walking. He was going to the Hearth to see if the leader had any answers for him about the diasters, for this was a mission that the great lord Arceus has given him. In the distance he could see a village and knew that he finally made it to the Hearth. He decided run since he didn't want to miss the meeting, he ran as fast as he could and finally reached the town. Striker decided to go to the nearest shop to see where the meeting was going to be held. The nearest shop had a small sign with a teacup embedded in it and it happened to be a little tea shop owned by a Mr.Mime. Striker looked at the sign before opening the door, he didn't notice the bells start to jingle at his entrance.

    "Hello Sir, can I help you with anything" said The Mr.Mime as he looked up and heard the little bells jingling over the door.

    " I'm trying to find out where the meeting will be held, can you help me" said Striker as he held onto the door with his webbed hand. The Mr. Mime looked at Striker with Confusion before stating " the Meeting is held at the center of town, you should hurry up if you want to make it". "Thank you for your time" Striker said as he stepped back out of the shop and closed the door behind him. Striker turned around and walked through the town noticing curious and suspicious looks directed at him from the locals. Finally, after walking past most of the shops he saw a gathering of Pokémon and quickly made his way to them.

    He saw a bunch of benches scattered about and chose the closest one for a seat and waited for the meeting to begin

    With a small bag of Oran and Pecha berries slung over his shoulder, and one of the berries in his mouth, Kizo made his way to the town meeting from his 'cave' on the outskirts of town. (Which was realy little more than a small overhang that sheltered him from the rain.) He let out a yawn, having gotten home late from a 'lovely' visit with his family. As he walked through, some of the smaller kids would follow him and ask about his training. "Did you learn anything new?" "Did you fight 'him' while you were gone?" "Did you get hurt?". Kizo just smiled.
    "I'll tell you guys all about it once I'm done with this dull meeting."
    He stopped and handed them afew berries from his bag, and after they agreed to wait for the story, he would finish his trip to the center of town, making his way into the crowd.

    It wasn't long before Cerebrum and Lea had made it to the square. A lot of Pokémon were gathered there, chatting among themselves. Lea didn't see anyone she knew right away, but before long, she noticed a familiar Honchkrow.
    "Hey, Ezra!" Lea called out before trotting over to him. "How've you been?" She saw a little Rotom floating about nearby. "I see you've brought Armin with you. He's here for the meeting too?"
    Cerebrum made his way over on his own, giving a curt nod to Ezra and Eeks. He kept a little distance from the gathering of Pokémon; large groups made him a bit uncomfortable. He glanced around the group a little, then he saw a lone Psyduck sitting on a bench nearby. Just from this simple glance, the Beheeyem could tell that there was a certain aura about this Psyduck that made him unique. He approached this Psyduck.
    "Good afternoon, sir," Cerebrum offered. "I assume you're here to attend the meeting as well as the rest of us?"

    A short while later, the old Alakazam made his appearance. He had to use a wooden cane to get around due to his age. The crowd hushed once he appeared. "Good afternoon, residents of the Hearth, and welcome to our weekly meeting..." Thus began another dull meeting.

    Lucaro was wandering the town, admiring the social structure and architectural design of the small town of the Hearth. Many were bustling about with their daily lives, though a few seemed to be headed to the town center. He wasn't too sure about what was going on, as he had settled down to help the village only a few weeks ago. Something about a meeting? Whatever the case, the Lucario headed down and followed the others to their destination, wherever that may be.

    "Come on, Daniel! We're gonna be late!" Ashlin called, tapping her foot on the ground. The Zangoose was eager to get to the town's weekly meeting to see what needed to be fixed. "Yeah, yeah, I know. Just trying to get one more sale," the Mothim responded. Turning back to his customer, he confirmed the sale of his herbal medicine and promptly closed up shop for the time being. Retrieving his pouch of emergency medicines, he floated over to Ashlin and nodded. "Ready." With that, the two set off to the town center.

    After a short moment, with a sigh, Ashlin spoke, "You know, I really wish people would take this seriously. Not enough of us are actually caring about what's going on." Daniel nodded his agreement. "Sad to say, but many are more concerned with their own daily lives than what the future holds in store. I suppose we just need to motivate them." The Zangoose caught movement from the corner of her eye. Turning to see who it was, she realized it was Lucaro, the newcomer. With a wave, she called, "Hey! Lucaro!" The Lucario turned and waved back with a smile. He trotted over to her and nodded to Daniel. "Hey. What's up? And where's everyone headed?" he asked. Daniel responded, "Weekly town meeting. It's when we 'discuss' what issues need to be fixed in the town. No one really bothers to do anything though." The Mothim would have shrugged if he had shoulders. "Not exactly our fault, I guess." Ashlin turned to Lucaro. "You wanna tag along with us? It'll at least make it tolerable." She blushed a little bit, realizing what she said. "I mean, you know, cause we're friends and all."

    Lucaro chuckled at Ashlin. "Of course I will. Come on, let's go." Proceeding to the center of the Hearth, the group came upon a Delcatty, Honchkrow, and Rotom chatting to one another. The Lucario stepped up to them and asked, "Excuse me. Where exactly is this weekly meeting being held at?" He looked at them. "I've never seen you before. Then again, I've only been here for a few weeks. I'm Lucaro. Who are you?"

    Eeks scrunched up his face in an upset pout, his arms flailing about as he replied to Lea. "It's Eeeeeeeks!!" He squeaked, noticing how she called him Armin. Ezra just ignored the young child, and dipped his head to Cerebrum and Lea. "Hello, Lea and Cerebrum! I'm doing quite well, and yourself?" He glanced back down at the upset Rotom. "Yes, I've brought Armin along for his first meeting. I figure he's old enough now. Plus, he's even got something to say at this meeting!" He smacked Eeks on the back of the head with his wing.

    Eeks lifted his arms angrily and let his body light up blue in anger. "Grr, do not do that again!!" He lost interest in the old bird quickly when three newcomers walked up to him and the Delcatty woman. He zipped in front of them, eyeing them. "I'm Eeeks. Sorcerer of the trees!!" Ezra sighed from his perch, before nodded his head at the newcomers. "Good day to you. I'm Ezra, and this young fellow is Armin- though he insists being called 'Eeks'." He continued on. "A meeting is held weekly, right here in the middle of Hearth. It's always good to have newcomers such as yourself."

    Ezra looked beside Lucaro, noticing Ashlin and Daniel. "Hello again, you two! Ready for another meeting? Perhaps we can finally get something done this week." Ezra was a patient Honchkrow, but he was a little tired of no one putting in effort in Hearth, to make things better for them and the humans.

    Emory blushed, embarrassed that she'd yet to find an opening to introduce herself. As soon as Ezra quieted, she began to speak, her voice like a little melody. "H-Hello! I'm Emory- I'm just as new as you are, really.. I travel a lot. Pleased to meet you." She gave a little curtsy to the Pokémon around her. She saw Eeks eyeing her berries again. "You may have more, Eeks." She smiled to the rest of the group. "All of you can help yourselves, if you'd like." In truth she was quite hungry,but didn't want to rudely eat in front of others. Eeks happily gnawed on a berry that was too big for his mouth.

    Nibbling on his berry, Eeks saw an old Alakazam appear, initiating the meeting. His voice was dull, he seemed bored to the young Rotom. Eeks shot up above the crowd, excited he could speak. "Hey, Alakazam man! The humans cut down my tree! MY TREE! And they turned it into a house- which is rightfully mine! But they won't leaaaaaaaave!! They've taken my home!" He put on his blue sunglasses, trying to look ultra cool as he made his next statement, and crossed his lightning-bolt shaped arms. "Rise up, Pokémon of Hearth! Let us take back out resources! I will lead us to victory! Me, The sorcerer of Trees, EEKS!" He looked about, noticing no one cheering along with him. How embarrassing!

    Ezra covered his head with his wing, embarrassed for the young child. No one was going to take him seriously! He mumbled to the young child. "Oh Armin, that was not a good first impression...I was wrong about you being old enough.." Emory merely sat with her berries, giggling softly. To her, Eeks was a cute, imaginative child!

    Kinzon awoke to the sound of distant voices, and groggily sat up in his small cave to peek outside. He could see the Hearth in the distance, and the large gathering of Pokémon he saw could only mean that the weekly village meeting was going on. The Gabite sighed, silently cursing himself for falling asleep at such an inconvenient time, as he gathered his things for the trek into town.

    He was never fond of the village meetings, but since he was an honorary member of the community, it was only fair to attend them. Most of the other Pokémon paid him no mind, and he highly doubted most of them noticed he was even there, which was fine by him.

    As Kinzon approached the center of the town, he saw that the meeting had already started, and he tried to slip in unnnoticed. Luckily, the Alakazam that hosted the meetings seemed to be distracted by a rather energetic Rotom talking about trees, so he managed to take a seat in back behind the large group. He laughed to himself, then quieted down to pay attention to the meeting at hand.

    "Oh, I'm good, thanks!" Lea chimed to Ezra. She nodded at his comment about Armin being old enough to be there. "How old is he, by the way? What does he have to say?" The Espeon really hadn't noticed Emory until she spoke up and introduced herself. "Hi Emory! I'm Lea, and that-" she gestured with her head "is Cerebrum. Nice to meet you!" Her eyes lit up when the Delcatty said that she was a traveler. "Oh, is that so? Where are you from, then?"

    Cerebrum was off in his own little world in the meantime. He simply watched what was going on, listening to the old Alakazam ramble on in his usual monotone. He had noticed a Gabite - Kinzon - slip into the crowd, but didn't do anything in response. Then Eeks made his little show. Alakazam didn't even do anything in response; he was just as shocked as the crowd at his suddenness. Cerebrum recognized the child; Ezra had mentioned him numerous times, but he had never seen the Rotom in person. When Eeks finished, the Beheeyem simply lowered and shook his head. "Oh, dear..." he sighed with a chuckle. "That boy has a lot of energy."

    Lea took note of the display as well. She tried to stifle a laugh. "My, my, he's quite an attention-grabber, isn't he?" She giggled and looked at the mortified Honchkrow. "I think you're right about him not being old enough yet."

    "Oh come on, Davis." Tegan hissed as she tried to hurry the small Pawniard over to her. Normally she wouldn't have minded playing the waiting game but today was something different. They had to get to a meeting and yet, they're going to be late because Davis was too busy being--well, Davis. Standing patiently beside her was Davis' best friend Claudette. She too was growing rather impatient with him as she had tapped her foot and folded her arms. Tegan glanced down at the Kirlia and sighed. "Mind grabbing him? I would but he'd put up a fight."

    Claudette made the motion of pushing up her imaginary sleeves and marched right into the burrow of which Davis was hiding in. She had crawled into the small spot and found Davis sitting there looking at her with a bitter expression. "Please come on out." She politely asked.

    "No. It's another one of those dull things again. Dunno why Tegan insists on bringing me. I'd rather do my own thing." Davis huffed and looked away. "I'm not moving."

    Claudette sighed. "Didn't want to do this." With that said, Davis had looked back to her wondering what a psychic Pokémon could possibly do to him. He even added a mocking laugh. But Claudette didn't find it offensive. She only fired back at him, using Attract. Winking at him and looking all adorable, Davis instantly fell for her trick. She then waved towards her, telling him to follow.

    Once she got out, she marched back over to Tegan. "Got him. Though--" She turned and looked at the Pawniard. "I had to use Attract on him to get him to listen."

    "Good enough." Tegan really didn't care how she got him out. If Claudette had to pull the kid by the legs and drag him a couple of yards, it would have been fine by her. Without waiting any longer, she reached down and grabbed Davis and placed him onto her shoulder. "Let's get going before we're TOO late." With that, she just started off.

    After a couple of minutes passing by, Davis snapped out of the spell and flailed a bit. He even tried to climb off of Tegan's shoulders but the Cacturn swatted at him. He stopped trying to do so and he complained. "Hey! I can walk. Put me down. Also where are we going? Are we REALLY going to that meeting?"

    "It's a good meeting that will do you good. Besides. If you want to be a super hero~" Claudette grinned. "You'll have to attend these "boring" meetings and hear what's going on. Maybe then you can actually put an end to the evil doings!"

    "Sounds splendid. But I'm gonna be the Super hero that does whatever I wanna do." He crossed his arms as he looked back to his cousin. "Please put me down."

    "No." Tegan said flatly.

    "Fine! I'll get down myself!" Davis stubbornly tried once again.

    "You fall, you're hurt yourself and it will be hilarious." Tegan warned. And with that warning, Davis had fallen off her shoulder and landed face first next to Claudette. "Told you. Dummy." Just before Davis could make another get away, she grabbed at him once more. This time, she ended up carrying him like some sort of lost luggage. Now he wasn't able to escape. "Things would be easier, if you just followed like your supposed to. You know-orders from your Mom."

    "Yea yea yea. All work and no play. Sheesh." Davis complained.

    They finally made it to the meeting point. Others have already made it there and the community wide meeting had already begun. Agitatedly sighing, Tegan walked over to the nearest group of Pokémon. She continued to hold Davis like luggage while Claudette had eagerly waited by her side. Tegan wasn't fond of these meetings because they were often too "good" and "kind." She'd rather go around and beat the snot out of others. But she attended these because she figured it would be useful to know what's flying.

    Claudette tried to see over someone in front of her but couldn't. "Aw, I wish I was a Gardevoir. I'd be able to see better." Just before she continued, Tegan had also lifted her onto her other shoulder. "Thank you~" She chimed. Then waved to Davis who still looked unhappy with sitting there on her shoulders. "Cheer up Davis. We can play after."

    "Sure hope so. Unless I die from boredom."

    "Or I smash you." Tegan had to add.

    "Or that." Davis didn't seem too bothered by Tegan.

    On a distant island in the sea, there resided only one Pokémon. This Pokémon, believed by the humans to herald the full moon, lived in solitude. A lonely solitude, but solitude nonetheless. She had traveled around the region many times, urgently trying to get Pokémon to help her. None had offered so far. She had considered giving up many times, but she was determined not to. She looked up into the afternoon sky, thinking. She decided that she might as well take another gander at seeking help today. Somehow, she didn't know how, she felt that this might be her lucky day.

    Thus, she floated above her home, the Fullmoon Island, and began her flight to the Sinnoh region. As she flew, she gazed down upon the most recent of catastrophes to have happened to the region. Flooding had swamped most of what the humans called Canalave City, which was little more than a village at the moment. Though she didn't mind the humans, she didn't believe that they were welcome. Nonetheless, it seemed that they were here to stay. She flew over the beginnings of Jubilife and Oreburgh Cities before she came across a sight she had hoped for.

    A distance away from Hearthome City was a large group of Pokémon. She wondered why so many diverse species were all gathered in one place. She floated high above the mass, looking and trying to listen. This is just too perfect, she thought to herself. Maybe today I'll finally find some Pokémon to help me.

    - - - - -

    The old Alakazam continued to drone on. Many of the Pokémon had lost interest in what he was saying and had begun to talk among themselves. It wasn't long before one of them spoke up. "What about the food shortages? The droughts have been ruining our harvests. We need to find more food!" The crowd murmured in agreement. Alakazam was about to address this when another said, "Yeah! And what about our homes? The storms are tearing them up!" Another murmur of agreement. In the Hearth, food and shelter were two of the most important things to the residents. If either were threatened, they would gladly help out to solve the issues. In fact, those were just about the only things the residents were willing to go out of their way to help with. The old Alakazam sighed. "Alright, then... We will address these issues soon enough." He then spoke up. "Does anyone else have anything to add? Other concerns that need attention brought to?"

    Eeks looked about, looking for even the tiniest paw raise. Wasn't someone going to join him on his quest for domination?? He covered his mouth with his bolt-shaped arm, and tried to make his voice sound more feminine, and tried to fool the crowd that someone else was talking to him. "Oh master Eeks, I will join you! You're soo coo-" The tiny Rotom was enveloped in a dark wing. The child removed his sunglasses.

    When he removed the glasses, he met the fierce eyes of Ezra, who didn't look so happy about his previous outburst. "Armin. Behave. NOW." The Honchkrow was sure that their voices were muffled by his wing. "This isn't the time or place to goof off. Wait until we get home." Eeks huffed, and wiggled out of Ezra's wing.

    "Fine!" He squeaked. "But you have to call forth a Murkrow army to help me with the humans!" Ezra bonked him on the back of the head with his large black wing. "Honestly, Armin! You are 8 years old, start acting like it!" Eeks stuck his tongue out, in a foul mood.

    The small Rotom began to glance around the crowd, noticing newcomers. A Gabite, Pawniard, Kirlia and Cacturne. They all looked a little intimidating, except for the Kirlia. She looked really nice- and cute. Blegh, girls! Eeks thought. He hated when some of them looked cute! Being a child and unsure of what to do, he just pulled a funny face at her as she sat on the Cacturne.

    Thankfully enough, the meeting continued on, without anyone mentioning Eeks' outburst. Emory felt out of place, seeing as she wasn't exactly a resident of The Hearth. However, she was glad no one had pointed it out. She really liked the Hearth and decided she would stay there for a short while, so she listened intently to the lead Alakazam. Food was brought up as an issue, something the young Delcatty could help with. She had an excellent nose, which could help her sniff out berries and other things hidden underground that could be used as food. She was so wrapped up in the meeting, that she almost forgot to answer Lea's question.

    "O-Oh!" She said, remembering the question. "I was born in the northern parts of Sinnoh- a little chilly and high altitudes. But being a Delcatty, i could never stay in once place. So I've been travelling around, unable to find some place I permanently want to stay." She whispered on. "But I really like the Hearth."

    Ezra sighed as he saw Eeks pulling faces at other children in the crowd, but at least he was being quiet. He'd make him apologize to the others when the meeting was over. The Alakazam asked if anyone had anything else to say. The older Honchkrow cleared his throat. "Humans also seem to be worried about the sudden weather changes. These violent storms are tearing down some of their houses, causing them to cut down more forests in order to make their homes stronger." He sighed through his beak, unsure of where to go with his next sentences. "I know it's going to sound impossible but.. I think we need to find away to communicate with humans so they understand that we are struggling too, or find out the cause of these storms. We and humans are both experiencing food and shelter shortages, it seems.." He was sure he sounded crazy, but they really needed to find away so that both humans and Pokémon could cooperate together, so that they both had enough food and shelter!

    Lucaro listened to the meeting drag on by as the same topic was brought over and over. Many others had started conversations of their own and some were even daydreaming, like himself. He truly was glad to have company by his side; otherwise this would have been unbearable. When the Alakazam asked his final question, the Lucario stood up. "I have one," he called. "Does anyone have any idea as to what's even causing all these disasters? And an idea as to how to stop them?" He cast his gaze around through the crowd. "I mean, this is just like what happened to Johto, but it seems to me that there's a different reason why."

    Ashlin was surprised Lucaro even bothered to answer the question at all, much less with something so outrightly demanding. And Lucaro had been to Johto?! This fact shocked her, she thought he was just a wanderer of Sinnoh only. A little nervous yet confident, the Zangoose rose to her feet and added, "Y-yeah! And what about if we can't figure it out? What about when the disasters continue and then tear this place apart? What then?" Her voice rose throughout her sentence. "We need answers, just from you-" she pointed to the old Alakazam- "but from everyone here!" She cast her hand out the crowd, indicating that they need to pitch in and help.

    Daniel, on the other hand, was simply not caring about the meaningless hobnob of the congress at all. He was more concerned about talking with the others about daily life and whatnot, shifting in and out of semi-consciousness. He felt something in the air though, a movement of sorts. Like something had passed its gentle hand over his wings, caressing it. Like he could feel the clouds pass overhead in the sky. His eyes moved upward and he thought he saw something glinting in the sky. What is that? he wondered. The Mothim nudged his sister to get her attention but she was too busy "listening" to the meeting to care. Deciding that being verbal was the best way to go, he bumped Ezra, Eeks and a few others and pointed upward. "Do you see anything?"

    Striker, who has been silent the whole meeting decided to speak up. He looked directly at the old Alakazam and said "There are forces at work beyond our understanding, I wonder if someone has angered one of our lords (Kyurem, Groundon, Kyogre, Giratina, DIalga, Palkia) for that would explain these disasters".



    Edit:
    Updated with a list of Pokémon Lords

    Kinzon listened intently to the discussions going on around him. The region was much worse off than he thought, and disease wasn't even the worst of it. Most Pokémon can't do anything to stop a natural disaster, even some of the Pokémon Lords cannot put a stop to them. He did have a fair bit of knowledge about the crippling diseases that have been spreading, though, and he felt that it was only fair to offer help in case anyone needed it.

    He cleared his throat and stood up a bit, facing the Alakazam elder. "Uh..." he stuttered for a second before steeling his nerves and continuing- "While I don't know much about the natural disasters going on or how to stop them, I do have some knowledge of the diseases that have been going around. I'm willing to help others with my berry cures, if any sickness spreads here." He paused, looking around at the still-chattering crowd. "I'd hate to see anyone else get sick, so... if anyone needs medicine, come talk to me."

    The Gabite finished and sat back down, rubbing his claws together to try to calm himself down. Public speaking was never his strong point, he liked his space and talking with others was rather nerve-wracking. As he went back to watching the meeting, he felt something nudge his shoulder, and he jumped a bit before noticing a Mothim in front of him was trying to get others' attention.

    "Do you see anything?" The Mothim said, pointing upwards. Kinzon glanced towards the sky, looking around for anything that the moth Pokémon might have noticed. He didn't see anything, and was about to shrug it off when he saw something among the clouds shimmer oddly in the light. It was too bright to be a star, and he didn't know of any Pokémon that flew that high in the area.

    "Yeah, I see something. What do you think that is?" Kinzon muttered to the Mothim.

    Kizo sighed and tilted his head to the skys. This was going just the same as every other meeting. Pointless....
    "I just hope it doesnt rain..." He mumbled as he sat down, closing his eyes and leaning his head on one arm.

    Tegan paid no mind to the others in the crowd. The whispering and the talking during the Alakazam's speech seemed unimportant. A few things have been brought up, lack of food, disastrous weather, all sorts of fun trouble that the world is dishing out upon human and Pokémon alike. She could hear a few whine about what they were going to do and whether or not they would have to find a new home. Then there was one Patrat that was acting like it was the end of the world.

    Quite frankly.

    Tegan just wanted to punt the noisy Patrat.

    Right in Tegan's ear, Davis had let out a long and terrible yawn. His boredom was consuming his mind. "Is he ever gonna be done? I'm gonna die from boredom before I evolve. And that won't be cool." He looked to Claudette who nodded in agreement.

    "Keep complaining and you'll die sooner." Tegan commented back.

    Davis didn't really take offense to her comment. He was used to her rather morbid nature and often shrugged it off. Though he did want to make sure that she wasn't going to get angry because then he was sure that she would just smash him like a bug. He shivered as he thought about that. Then his next brother would be all in it for the glory of being the leader of the siblings. Davis didn't want that. So he'd play along with Tegan's moral--thingy.

    Claudette had leaned against Tegan's head. She was just as bored as her friend was. But then. Someone was pulling a funny. She glanced over to see a kid-Rotom with cool shades. In truth, Claudette thought those sunglasses looked rather funny on him but she wasn't going to mock him for that. Until he started making funny faces at her. She scrunched her face a bit before she too joined in that fun game. Claudette made a goofy face back.

    This in turn, had gained Davis' attention. Eeks and Claudia were making funny faces at one another! He wanted to join in too! So he tried his best to make a goofy face too. Though, having most of his face hidden under that little mask of his, it was really difficult to come up with a cool one. So instead he crossed his eyes and squinted one of his eyes while using his arms to make ears.

    Unfortunately, this gained Tegan's attention and all she did was give him a death glare.

    Davis looked back at her while wearing the same goofy face. He wasn't gonna stop until she told him to. It would have been a command by then! Silence wasn't a direct order. So hah!

    Tegan went to say something until she was poked on the side by a random civilian. She glanced down at them to notice their attention was pointed at the sky. The Cacturn looked upwards. There was something in the sky. "Meh. Who cares?" She shrugged and looked back to the Alakazam who was dealing with other peoples questions.

    "OOO! OOOO!! I know how we can communicate with humans!!!" Davis jumped up and down on Tegan's shoulder. She snapped a rather sharp glare at her little cousin. He didn't seem to care though. "Maybe we can uh--write something to them!"

    "Can they even read what we write?" Claudia fired at him.

    "Oh. WELL! Maybe we can doodle something!"

    "Shut up Davis." Tegan groaned.

    "No! Like. . . Drawing or. . . I would say talking but all they ever did to me was go 'AW! A CUTE LITTLE PAWNIARD! WHERE'S YOUR MOMMY AND DADDY?'"

    "I'm going to clock you one. Shut up." Tegan hissed.

    "No." His sharply replied while folding his arms and glaring back at Tegan. If she was gonna be a brat about stuff, so was he!

    "Um-let's try to see if other people have slightly better ideas." Claudette said as she attempted to prevent the two Pokémon from killing one another. Though she was certain Tegan would win easily. "But what is that thing in the sky? I can't really tell what it is."

    "You need glasses." Davis commented.

    "Maybe I do." She shrugged. Anything was possible. With her luck, that's what would probably happen.

    Cerebrum listened intently as issues were brought up, most of them from the usual list. The things said by Ezra and the new Lucario caught his ear, though. He cleared his throat. "If I may say," he began, turning to Ezra, "while the idea of communicating with humans would have its merits, the idea seems impractical at best. The humans do not seem to appreciate us being where they want to be, so communication would be highly unlikely, even with a means of doing so." The Beheeyem turned again. "And to you, Lucario-" addressing him by his species, not his name "-we, unfortunately, have no better conclusion than you do as to the cause of these phenomena. I have been attempting to study the issue for a while, with no clear conclusion myself." His gaze shifted to the Zangoose beside Lucario. "With no clear cause, no preventative measures can be taken." He then addressed Kinzon. "The diseases that you have mentioned, I have not heard of. That matter should be addressed as well." With that, Cerebrum drifted towards Lea.

    Lea, too, had been listening to the issues. She was more interested, however, in what the Pokémon were shouting out about what to do. The Lucario who claimed he had been to Johto was especially interesting. The Espeon would have to ask him about it some time. When Emory spoke up, Lea responded, "Oh, so you're from northern Sinnoh? Neat! The Hearth sees a lot of travelers come and go." She smiled warmly. "I'm glad you like it here. It's a really nice place... aside from these meetings, that is."

    The old Alakazam simply listened to the shouts as they came. A few Pokémon seemed to be demanding for action - a first, quite frankly. Alakazam was by no means one to make his people unhappy. Thus, he sighed, saying, "Well, then. I suppose we will need to find a new food source and some building materials..." He was stopped short by a few gasps and the pointing of fingers at something behind him. He slowly turned to find a large swan-like Pokémon floating behind him. The elder jumped in surprise, nearly falling into the crowd. "M-my word-!" was all he could get out.

    The Pokémon was Cresselia. While Cerebrum had been talking, she had taken the opportunity to stealthily float behind Alakazam. She was honestly surprised at how long it took for the Pokémon to notice her. "Good afternoon to you all," she called out. "I am Cresselia, and I believe I have an answer to all of your problems." The crowd began to talk among itself. Some were skeptical, some were hopeful. "First, however, I have a request. I'd like a group of willing Pokémon to step forward to help me. If any of you would like to, please, step forward."

    There was an awkward pause. No one said anything, but everyone looked at each other, waiting to see if someone would step forward. Finally, Lea spoke up. "I-I'll help you, Cresselia. I'd be honored to." Cerebrum shot a glare at her, a look like "What do you think you're doing?", but Lea disregarded it.
