Well, here we are. A second installment in the Final Challenge saga. When I finished that story, I had it set in mind to begin work on the sequel. And instead I end up starting to write the prequel. Figures, huh?
Please note, spoilers follow below. I highly recommend that you read Final Challenge before taking a gander on this prequel.
This story is more of an amalgamation of events that takes place in between the Sinnoh League and Ash's battle with Cynthia for the title of Pokemon Master (which is of course how Final Challenge opened). As such, there will not necessarily be a straightline plot (although I shall certainly endeavour to establish one); the intent of this story is primarily to explain how some of the events in Final Challenge came to be. Which events are those? You'll just have to read and see ;)
I plan on keeping this one relatively short, and as it covers a span of almost three years there may be some rather large gaps in between chapters.
As I've said, this is a prequel to Final Challenge; for those new to this world, you may be better off reading that story before going on to this one. I warn you now, there will be allusions to events that occurred in that story, and so there could very well be spoilers for it too. I'd hate to deprive you of those surprises, so please keep that in mind. Also, thanks to University I can't promise a regular updating schedule; I'll try to write as much as I can when I can, but there may be gaps in between updates.
So, here we go. I hope that you all enjoy the story that is to come. Here's hoping I haven't jumped the shark.
