((OOC: I've had this idea in my head for almost a year I think but have been too lazy to actually write it. I'm not completely happy with how it turned out, but here's the first chapter.)) Togetic's feet touched the ground at last; she'd been flying for hours it seemed. In the ancient world Togetic lived in it was often hard to find food, especially for a rather weak Pokémon like herself that could not kill her own prey. The only that kept her going was the thought of her babies, her newly hatched Togepi, the ones that were hungry and waiting back at the nest for food. In the distance the newly deceased carcass of a Zigzagoon lay on the ground, its smell making it hard for anything with a nose to miss. Togetic flapped her wings, in these ancient times Togetics had not yet gained the power to fly without the use of their wings, and therefore they looked quite different, and headed towards the food. She immediately began feasting, storing her food so that she could later regurgitate it to her Togepi. Togetic's sharp teeth sunk into the Zigzagoon, taking a large bite and enjoying the taste of food. Blood splattered onto her long white coat but she did not mind, she'd lick herself clean later. All that mattered now was to eat and get back to her babies before something bad happened to them. Predators were everywhere. She stopped mid-bite, aware she was being watched. Before Togetic had a chance to take to the sky a loud roar ripped through the air as a Tyranitar sprung from the bushes and fired an intense concentrated beam of energy, just missing Togetic. The beam wasn't meant to hit her, of course, Tyranitar wanted his prey to be in one piece and the Hyper Beam attack would have demolished her tiny body. A sudden realization hit Togetic. It was a sixth sense many Pokémon possessed, one that alerted them to danger. This wasn't the only Tyranitar. There were more, hundreds, and they were heading this way. In a matter of minutes they'd find the Togepi, her children. A roar snapped Togetic back to earth; she would have no way of saving her children if she died. Togetic mustered power of her own, trying to fend off her attacker. She concentrated the power to her finger, which began to glow with energy. In her mind Togetic was calling out for an attack, something to distract her assailant. And a distraction was just what she got. The light on the end of her finger quickly spread to her entire body, which flashed brightly for a brief second. The Flash attack forced Tyranitar's eyes shut and gave Togetic some precious time to run. Flapping her wings, Togetic actually managed to lift herself this time. She flew high first, wanting to get out of reach before she fled. She also didn't want Tyranitar to follow her back to the nest. Togetic was now a good sixty feet in the air and already out of breath, the attack had taken a lot out of her. And then, turning around, she saw it. She could almost see the ground rumble as hundreds of the green monsters tore through the valley and anything that got in their way. There was a small wall of trees blocking the hoard of Tyranitar from the lone one, who was just now recovering and had not yet spotted Togetic. She had to hurry, at the speed they were going they would reach her babies in a matter of minutes. Togetic took off in the opposite direction, heading back towards the nest and the precious lives that were in them. Flying as fast as she was, when she was as tired as she was, took a lot out of her and Togetic had no choice but to land and make the rest of the way on foot. Togetics were fast on their feet, so this wouldn't be too much of a problem. Togetic lowered, still moving at a rapid pace. She was in such a rush that she didn't bother looking where she was landing. This was a mistake. The happiness Pokémon's feet had just touched what they thought was solid ground when they suddenly began to sink. Togetic panicked, struggling to get loose of the thick tar that was slowly engulfing her. Her cries could be heard all the way back in the nest, trying to warn her children, who were fast asleep, waiting to be fed. And then she gave up, allowing the tar to take her over, giving her life away. The Tyranitars continued their rampage through the ancient valley, ignoring the tar pit completely, leaving Togetic to be forgotton.
