Opening Theme: F.A.T.E.
Scrap City, one of the major stronghold cities against the Defiled, many people have been migrating here recently after fleeing their homes from the Defiled. It was known as one of the largest barricaded cities in the region. Along the way immigrants were helplessly fighting back the tears of seeing their dear families, friends, and Pokemon as they turned into the “Cursed Ones.” This world is slowly becoming lifeless, due to the loss of large amounts of Pokemon that maintain the environment. Vibrant forests are beginning to wither and die out, grass, berries, and crops have stopped growing in most areas, and there have been a large increase in Defiled attacks forcing people to lose their homes or turn into ‘them’. Humanity and Pokemon alike are on the brink of destruction.
In spite of all this darkness a small ray of light shines. Young children born with special marks on their bodies, and Pokemon also born with these matching special symbols have started to gather at Scrap city. These children and their Pokemon are the small beacons of hope that started to motivate people and show that all hope hasn’t been lost. After years of research it was shown that these humans and Pokemon not only are not affected by the Defiled but have the power to fight back against them. In the 40 years since the Defiled started attacking this might be the one and only chance to take a stand.
The special children were all gathered in for a meeting with the Purification Task Force (PTF), a special force that keeps cities safe at the cost of their lives, to discuss a plan of action. These children were discovered by the well-renowned scientist Professor Cedar during one mishap where he witnessed that one born with a birthmark and their bonded Pokemon were able to easily destroy a single Defiled completely. Thus, they forced the children to journey into the world and fight the Defiled and figure out a way to rid the world of these monsters forever lest they doom all life in this world. They would not go unrewarded however as those they discover with these special abilities attain special privileges around the city receiving VIP treatment in exchange for being experimented on and being sent on missions to gather materials to keep the city alive.
Today was the day that everyone was about to set out on their first mission. There was a fair number of special chosen so the city thought it was about time they set out to fulfill their duty. The meeting place was small area near the exit barricade that were being guarded by some armored soldiers and some armored Mightyena. The small area was close to a supply shop, in case anyone forgot something along with some park benches. There were also street lights that have long since stopped functioning, their bulbs charred black from the outside. Electricity was a precious resource so all the power generated by electric type Pokemon in the city were used to keep things like hospitals and Pokemon centers open and operational. Professor Cedar would soon appear to give them a briefing on their mission.
Hideo was one of the first to arrive about and hour early, which made sense being the forced leader of the group. Like usual he was just wearing his dark blue hooded shirt, some black jeans, and some sneakers along with his backpack of supplies and his rapier in a sheath attached to his belt. He sat with his Turtwig on the nearby bench looking sullen. He was going to miss the protection of the city going off to fend for his life for the good of all life. Synth saw that his partner was had a sad look on his face, jumping on his lap, startling Hideo, he said, “Don’t worry! As long as I am with you everything is going to be fine. I’m going to stop those monsters even if it costs me my life.” Taken aback by Synth’s words he smiled and said, “You’re right I should be a little positive we are trying to save everyone.” Time was passing and he wondered when the others would arrive and whether they were are restless as he was. They all met briefly a couple times before during experiments or meetings but he didn’t really have a chance to get to know anyone personally which worried him since he knew little to nothing about anyone going on this mission.
