Opening Scene It was a cold and pitch-black room. With the sound of a hevay switch being hit, lights turned on, illuminating the marble room. black marble formed long thin lines along the floor, with a circle in the center. Outside these boundaries, more black marble formed a box on both of the two shorter sides, and in each box stood a Trainer. ON the right side of the room stood a male of about nineteen, dressed in silver pants with a matching jacket, a black shirt, and striking silver hair. His cold gray eyes stared straight at his opponent, a girl of similar age. She wore a long white dress with a light blue trim, a matching hat, and raven colored hair that fell down to her waist. "You can go first." the guy sighed. "Go, Luxray!" she called out, and with a burst of red light, a blue lion with black fur appeared. It had dazzling golden eyes that sparkled in the light. "Houndrane." he said lazily again. A dog came forth from the red light on his side. The dog had curved horns coming out of both sides of its skull that looked like a ram's, had bones on its back like a spine, and a skull on the top of its head. Around its neck it wore what look like a necklace of vertebrae with a smaller skull set in the center. Houndrane was pitch black with an orange underside. "Luxray, Thunder Fang!" the girl called. Luxray's mouth electrified, and it jumped at Houndrane's neck. "Dark Pulse." he said calmly. A dark aura surrounded Houndrane, then shot out and hit Luxray full in the face, knocking it to the ground. "Malice Burn." Houndrane shot out a river of black fire at Luxray, covering it and hiding it from view. "Luxray!" the girl cried out. But it appeared to be of no use; Houndrane did not seem to be stopping its onslaught. Long after the fire should have ceased, the boy nodded for Houndrane to keep it up. For moments the black flame consumed the lion, and eventually it stopped, revealing naught but ash and a darkened spot on the pure white marble floor. "LUXRAY! LUXRAY! NO!" she screamed. "Troy, how could you?! Killing a Pokemon?! What are you playing at?!" Troy said nothing and shrugged, just staring at her, a glint of evil in his eyes. "Houndrane, return." he said, the red light emanating from a black and white ball in his hand. Troy snapped his figures, and two muscular men entered the room and took the crying girl out. He walked over to a table on the side opposite the door, and poured himself some coffee. A lady in a white labcoat walked in. She looked to be in her mid-twenties, and had flaming red shoulder-length hair and stunning brown eyes. "Troy," she said. "Another victim to your Houndrane, I see. You know, my research is not going very far with your behavior." "Professor Emmaline Cherry, when will you learn that I don't care?" "When you realize that I care about your safety." "Hmph. Saftey? Have you seen my Pokemon? They are unstoppable fighting machines, ready to kill at my command. I have pushed the boundaries of evolution farther than anyone has ever dared, and my results haven't scared me off." "Yes, but Troy-" "Just go back to your lab and wait until I send for you. I don't want you to get in the way." "Troy," Emmaline pleaded. "I don't want to leave. Let me stay." "Fine, just stay where I can keep an eye on you." Troy ordered. He walked out of the room, Emmaline looking disappointed. _______________________________ Okay, it finally came If you are going to say something that involves the poster, other than it looks cool, go here.
