Book 2: Rising Tide

Summary: The end of the Shadow Incident was far from the end of Cipher. It has recently been discovered by the wanderer N that Cipher had a second lab, and their evil plot went far deeper than anyone anticipated. With the rising threat of shadows closing in N calls upon his closest friend, Mewtwo, to help him put an end to the Shadow Project once and for all. (Pokemon BW, Pokemon RB)

Innocent of these darker designs, Jen, Gengar, and Kecleon arrive at Great Canyon, only to find Xatu has moved away some time ago. They have little time to consider their next move, the Houndoom pack is closing in once again, and the companions are forced to flee with questions yet unanswered.

Knowing their resources are growing thin, physically and mentally, the group agrees to seek out help from the guild in Treasure Town. After a grueling incident in a treacherous swamp, Gengar, fearing the worst, opens up and tells his companions about his pokemon partner, and what led him to being in his current form. Far from driving Jen away as Darkrai had led him to believe, the girl instead finds the good in Gengar's actions to save his pokemon friend, and their friendship grows all the closer as they continue on to Treasure Town.

With Treasure Town finally in sight, the group needs only to cross one last obstacle: a flooded moor. Unfortunately, One-Eye has outwitted them this time and managed to cut ahead with the help of Murkrow. He launches a surprise attack and wounds Gengar severely. With Gengar now unable to continue, Kecleon abandons the pair and makes for Treasure Town on his own, hoping to gain the aid of the Explorer's Guild to turn the tide...

Reading the description, I'm amazed to hear that N considers Mewtwo to be his closest friend. Those two outcasts of their respective species are a good match as friends (but not as a shipping, ew gross, isn't N a bit young for that anyway?), and I've already stated that I'm glad to see those two as companions, but I didn't realize how deep their bond was in this fic!

Thanks for the explanation parts! I'm looking forward to the story picking up again!

I think you may have forgotten that N is in contact with one of the Admins (or whatever they had) from team Cipher.

N has not, in fact, been in contact with any Cipher admins. N states that he has spoken to Professor Krane, but Krane isn't a Cipher admin. Far from it. He's the Professor who was kidnapped by Cipher to work on the XD project, which prompts the Player of Gale of Darkness to set out on his journey. Krane worked against Cipher, trying to purify afflicted Shadow Pokemon. The only Cipher admin who has been mentioned so far is Lovrina, and N has been unable to find her. Hope that clears things up! :star:

Oops,  I looked back and what N said was "I'll try again to locate Lovrina." Which I didn't remember and thought that he had contact with her before.

This is such a nice little summary.  Intertwining all the games is a really cool idea, and so far it's been done really well.  I'm so excited to see what happens next!

Gragh. I still hated the XD addition to this, but I reluctantly admit it makes sense.

...But yeah. Still hate it.
