Well guys,im not feeling well from my stomach right now.(Ow man,it hurts horrible!.)
Because of this,I'll upload only the "A Side" of the Final journal of "Become a Legend".
The second part,"B Side",which includes the winners,will be up tomorrow.I still need to finish it.
Remember,that out of the 20 entries left,12 will be the winners.
Im really sorry about this delay,but this freakin illness is not helping me at all.
I couldn't believe it!...there she was!!
Right in front of all of us.Coming from nowhere.This "ghost" was talking to us directly.
-"Is that...the woman you were looking for during our trip,Sareii?
-"Wow,and here I thought you were nuts or something,but there she is,after all"
-"Yeah,me too.I thought you lost your marbles...glad to see we were wrong about you Sareii!"
-(...Gee...thnx guys. )
The woman,then,started her speech.
???:-"Welcome,to all of you!.And congratulations! for you have been chosen by 'Mother' to be part of history.Im glad to see you made it too,Sareii."
-"Mother?,Chosen? what about that? and are you a ghost?"
She laughed with a special,sweet tone,and proceeded...
???:-"No,dear child...I am as alive as all of you are."
-"But the way you dissapeared that night! I reached the stairs and...puff! you where nowhere to be seen!"
Suddenly,a flash.A little pokemon appeared in less than a second,to the side of the woman.
It was a young Abra.
???:-"A single order to my little friend here was enough to return to my room in no time.He was cold that night,so I kept him under my cloak."
-*I felt such an idiot*..."wait a second...you had a room!? how come nobody saw you before!?"
-"Yeah,we saw Sareii ask all around the boat about a cloaked woman.She didn't skip a single passenger or crew member.But nobody saw you before."
Again,she laughed,in a special manner.
???:-"Teehee! Oh,you all saw me,and more than once! just not with the cloak on!"
We all felt dumb.
And then,she removed her cover,and unveiled her true identity.
-"Well? here I am"
-"Unbelievable! you were travelling with us all along!
-"But,Wait a second...I saw you with us,in the boat,a few hours ago,when the huge wave engulfed us all...but you weren't rescued by my wailord.How did you manage to reach this place faster than us?"
-"Oh thats quite simple!...I was travelling in the back of your wailord..."
And again,we felt dumb.
-"Hey! what about all the missing people from the boat!"
-"Thats right! What happened to all the people that vanished? Captain,crew,trainers...What did you do with them!?"
-"What did I do?...absolutely nothing.It was all 'Mother's' wise decision..."
-"Then who is this 'mother' you are talking about.
She,then,changed her smile for a grin.
-"Well...you are standing right on her"
-"What? you mean the...oh...
-"Hmm...I suppose I should tell you what's going on then..."
And then,she explained us everything:
"This place,as legends and stories like to call it,is "Phantasm Island".
An island only mentioned in old books and tales.An island that is nowhere to be found on any map.
A true ghost island....hence its name.
Several explorers tried,in vane,to find it.
For this island is not placed in our normal plane of existence,our dimmension.
Its true name is "Mother Land".
And it is Arceus's "Sandbox"...Or "playground".
This is the place were the true "essence" of Pokemon was born!.
Were the god of all pokemon first began to test his abilities,to create life.
This island is the base of life for the entire universe,whom Arceus would use as the mold,to expand his creations.
The Pokemon god has the unique power to manipulate these energies,the essence,to his own will.
The first kinds of "essence",or "types",as man calls them,were born from the island's elements,by Arceus will:
The "Normal" type,as mankind calls it,is the base for all the living beings.This is the type,brought by Arceus,into the island.
In order for Arceus to convert the elements into essence,he used "normal" as the base.
In other words..."Normal" is "life".
From the collision and conflict of different kinds of energy and elements,other types were made by the Pokemon god:
Sometimes,new essence would be molded by him,through the developed abilities of his first created beings:
Other types were made by the merging of different essence,into a single,pure essence:
And last,but not least...the final essence,made from the travel of the departed ones,between the world of the living,and the world of dead.
The Ghost type.
There is,however,one type,which was never made by Arceus.
That,is the Dark Type.
Several Pokemon,holding this mysterious essence,whether as a primary,or a secondary type,were made here!,and released into our world.
Who did it? Who took Arceus's place in the Mother land,and,in his absense,gave birth to this unique "childrens of darkness"?
That,still,remains a mystery.
In conclusion...Pokemon are nothing else,but the pure 'incarnation' of essence.
The devices created by us,called "Pokeballs",manage to "dissolute" the Pokemon,back into its essence.
But even we,humans,are part of this essence!.
Why the Pokeballs have no effect on ourselves,is something I really dont know...perhaps we evolved into "something" beyond what Arceus planned...
We were all shocked!.What was revealing,to all of us,was nothing else,but most of the mysteries of the universe!
Life,death,origins of the living,OUR origins...and the true labor of Arceus!
Eager for more knowledge,I couldn't help myself into asking:
-"But...if Arceus used the island to give birth to all the living beings...who made the island? and who put all the "elements" into it?
Exuitirteiss smiled,and continued:
-"We,humans,call it God...but it truly has no name.This is the supreme being,the one who made the base of all dimensions and universes.
...And Arceus...is "God's Pokemon".Or "God's" own pet,or "God's" Apprentice...Call it anyway you want."
All of us
"Arceus was given the task to expand life through the universe,carrying himself the essence of life.
And,at the same time,He gave birth to a special Pokemon,and gave to this little one the task to expand life through our planet.That little one was Mew."
-"Mew! isn't that the Pokemon who is supposed to have the DNA of every single Pokemon in our world?"
-"Indeed...But it also possess an incredible ability:With every new Pokemon created on this island,Mew will
acquire its essence instantly.It is tied to this Island in an amazing way.This means he also has the "dark" essence within him.
Mew's main essence is Psychic...but deep inside him,contains all the essence in the entire universe.Mew is a "carrier" of essence,or Types."
-"All of this is incredible!...but you said 'Mother' makes "decisions"...Does this make the island a living being?
-"Correct...The Island is,in fact,the first living being ever created by "God".
As I said before,the island is the "mold" for Arceus,who was made second,to carry on with "God's" task.
Now,you may ask yourselves how do I know all this,right?"
-"And more importantly,how do we know you are not inventing everything..."
-"Very well...You are all here,to take my place as the protector of this sacred land"
She then extended her left hand,revealing some kind of golden ring,with a strange pattern,similar to Arceus's golden ornament.
-"This ring,given to me by this sacred land,imbues me with,not only the duty to protect the island,but also the entire knowledge needed to carry on such task.
For five consecutive years,I was chosen to do this.I also had the task to select the succesors of this labor.I had to,somehow,find an excuse to attract as many people as possible to this place.
The last four years were a complete failure,as 'Mother' would reject the incoming trainers over and over,vanishing them back to their homes,without a single piece of memory about what happened".
-"So that's what happened with all the people dissapearing from the boat!?."
-"Yes.All your friends are safely back at their homes.This includes the captain and their crew.Even their ship and personal belongings.They dont remember anything about this trip."
All of us: YAY!!!
-"I wrote the E-Mail,inviting you all for the ultimate challenge.The Captain and his crew? I just hired them,for a trip of two days,to a fake location.
As the boat advanced through the water,it slowly started to swap between dimensions.Every once in a while,a few of you got "rejected".'Mother' chose wisely...".
-"...'Mother' had to choose the 20 most honest,pure hearted beings on board.Fortunately,this year was a complete success!.
The part of convincing you all to board a strange ship to an unknown place wasn't neccesary.Your pride as Pokemon trainers made it possible".
Why does the island need protection? To avoid the incident with the Dark types to happen again.If the person,or creature,that somehow found the island returns,it needs to be expelled away".
-"But why doesn't Arceus take care of that?"
-"Unfortunately,Arceus powers have diminished,after finishing his duty of expanding life through universe,millions of years ago.
He needs a couple more million of years to recover his entire power.For now,he resides inside a giant mountain,somewhere in our world,sleeping."
We were truly astonished.All we knew and heard...scientific theories regarding Types,and other stuff,were completely wrong.
-"However,it is not precisely "you" who will protect the island...See the pokemon right behind me?"
If we could see it? we sure could! It was an inmense monster! and it stood behind all the time since she showed up.
This is that "inmense monster",the winner of my previous "Become a Legend" contest
-"This is Terraniji.He protected this island for four years now...and I created him"
-"Well then...shall we begin?"
With the help of her Abra, teleported,from the rocky plateau,and along with Terraniji,right in front of us.
She asked us all to follow her to a side of the platform.
We saw twenty small columns.Each one with a crystal orb on the top.This crystalline orbs had a strong light inside them.
-"All of you,please choose an orb,and place your hand on top"
We all did as we were asked.The orb felt pleasantly warm to the touch.
-"As I promissed in the message I sent you all,you will now fulfill your wish.The wish that made you want to take this trip in the first place.
Close your eyes,and with all your heart,make your wish come true!"
And so...I did.
With all my heart,I remembered the encounter with the Seismotar.The happiest day of my life.
The huge,monumental legendary,that my father searched for his entire life!.
The joy of having found a creature neglected by scientists and naturists,dad's colleagues,who thought it was fake,and laughed at my father's face.
Dad tried to prove them wrong all his life.
He passed away,sad about his failure,and unable to fulfill his dream.
I became a naturist and explorer,as my father,to track down,and find the mysterious Seismotar,and avenge his word,in front of all the so called "experts"!.
Then,I suddenly remembered...
I also became a trainer...to fulfill my childhood's dream!.
To be able to,one day,train the legendary creature my father told me about in my bedtime stories.
He wrote several books about it.I was just 5,and he showed me his own drawings about how the creature might look like!.
I was inmediately fascinated by the creature.
I started to hear myself as the 5 yr old girl,echoing in the bottom of my heart.
Also,the images of my past,like an old film,went through my mind.
"Daddy daddy! I want one as a pet! I want to ride it,feed it,dress it..."
Such beautiful memories of my childhood! I started to shed tears of joy.
..."Daddy...we made it...Seismotar exists!.
As I started to open my eyes,I noticed a huge shadow,right above me.
The huge beast in front of me,responded to my call with a mighty roar that made my entire body tremble.
I jump off the platform,ran towards it,and hugged its huge,rocky legs.
Warm tears rolled from my eyes,and happiness filled my heart.
-"GAITERRYU! Its Real!"
I inmediately turned back...
-"OMG! KAIDRA! just Like in the book!"
...to see that everyone else...
-"VOIDEM!!...Me muero! Que groso!"
...had their dream fulfilled as well.
-"The CLEFARIARCH from my poem!!"
All of us were incredibly happy.
-"Its QUETZCLONE! from the Mayan legends!"
The legendaries we've been told about,wrote about,or plain imagined,were right there!.
Twenty legendaries stood in front of us,formed in line,ready for whatever our command was.
We all turned back and listened.
-"Perhaps an essence,only found on us,humans.It is this "essence" that made possible for you to handle this crystal
orbs,containing a pure,life essence,and morph it into the creature you've dreamed,or heard about.
For a minute,you fulfilled Arceus's role as a God."
I noticed the orbs on the columns,shattered.
-"Unfortunately,only one of these twenty creatures will stay present in this island,ready to defend it from any intruder.
The rest of them,by the end of this event,will vanish."
That comment shattered our hearts.
We just met with our dreamed legendaries,only to find out they wont stay with us for too long.
Except,of course,for the winner.
-"It is now my time...to say goodbye to my old friend"
turned around,and faced her Terraniji.She approached the legendary,and hugged him strongly.
She then wispered something I couldnt hear...
"This have been...the best four years of my life...After you died that terrible night,ten years ago,I only dreamed of finding you...but,we now part ways again...i'll never forget you,my old friend.
The beast hugged her back.His eyes were wet,as if it were crying.
Seconds later,Terraniji turned into light,and,as fast as a shooting star,ascended into that marvellous "sky",filled with stars,planets and galaxies.
It took her about two minutes to look up and face us again.it was evident that had been crying for this goodbye.
She then turned back at,and showed us her left hand again.
The ring was gone.
-"My time as the protector of this place is over.You will now battle each other,one on one,with your legendaries.Do not worry about attacks learned:the legendaries will execute any attacks you order them,with perfect coordination.
Only the strongest legendary can become the defender of 'Mother Land'".
We then,prepared ourselves...our greatest challenge as trainers was about to begin.
-It is YOUR TIME now! to be part of history,and become the heroes who offered themselves for this dangerous journey,in order to keep the secrets of the gods safe from greed and corruption.
Eleven of you will become champions...but one will become a legend!
And then,we begun.
Over the platform,one on one legendary battles were unfold.
We fought with heart and soul,like we never did with our regular teams.
If only dad could see this...
Hours passed,and one by one,opponents were falling down.
-"NOOOO! Me lo bajó con un Hyper Beam!"
The attacks were really powerful!!.The island's ground shaked with each impact!.
Until we were reaching the end of the struggle...
And the island calmed down again.
-"I cant believe it! That's impossible!"
The contest was over.
One winner stood there,on the platform.
