@Jupjami @Barandofl @Kecleon352 Here we go! In the Pokémon world of Ransei, an ancient Japan/China inspired Pokeworld far from the one we know, it has been seven years since a young girl named Taki united what was then seventeen kingdoms, awakened Arceus, and defeated the notorious warlord Nobunaga. In the seven years that have passed since Taki's journey, an eighteenth kingdom was discovered--the fairy type nation of Hikari. In addition, Nobunaga's remains were bound by eighteen jewels, to prevent evil from reviving Nobunaga. But that hasn't stopped some evil sects from trying to revive Nobunaga. One of them, the notorious Black Raikou sect, is only the latest to try. Horrified at what would become of Ransei if Nobunaga was revived, Taki instructed her four most trusted guardians--Ash, of the Red Thunder school of yumidou, Misty, of the Sapphire Sky school of swords; Brock; a mystic of the path of Shaymin who can channel magic through his music; and Serena, of the Golden Delphox school of spirit dancers--to find heroes worthy enough to undertake the long and dangerous journey to stop the Black Raikou Sect. Ash, Misty, Brock, and Serena began their search in Taki's hometown of Nijimachi, not far from the Rainbow Manor where they and Taki lived. Little did they know that they would not have to go far in finding heroes to help them.
