Quick Note: [This is my first story, but don't go easy on me =P... ALSO this is a STORY DEAL with Webmaster. He wants to trade me a turtwig with toxic and rock polish for the snorunt]
Snowpoint City, the place of Sinnoh's north point, a midway point to many; end to a trainer's path for some. The freezing temperature up in the north seemed to drive away many trainers because of the quick climate change, but for Aegis it was nothing. His burning willpower melted even the most frostbitten blizzard winds couldn't stop him from searching for adventure. He walked through the knee high snow and saw a sign that had had ice hanging off of the cold, wooden board, and it read "Lake Acuity". Aegis breathed heavily as he glared at the sign with curious facial expressions. His red scarf swayed through the blizzard winds and he felt snow and hail pelt him; He was defiantly wondering about this place. He was told by a friend once that Lake Acuity was one of the three points that is said to hold the pokemon of "Knowledge", also known as "Uxie", and he was defiantly eager to see what all of this was about. He then walked forward, past the sign through the wintery forest and the blizzard began to clear down just a bit, which then became snow, and now only sprinkles of white crystal dust.
As he walked, he noticed that the blizzard stopped as if was commanded to, and everything grew silent. Aegis continued walking noting that this could be a good thing, now that everything was a bit more clear. Trees covered with white powdery coating could be seen from afar, but there was an opening in between some of the huddled trees. He then pushed himself to walk through the chilly atmosphere and brushed his arm against the broken branches to continue his path across the contiguous winter landscape. Aegis then saw a clearing up ahead and saw small rock formation far away from him. He then began to walk towards the strange rock structure, which seemed to be about a mile away.
Suddenly he then began to hear laughter from around him; It began to get closer and closer to him. He turned around and saw a lady that had strange purple hair, and she was wearing certain attire on that looked familiar, in fact, it was obvious who she was. She wore tight white clothing with a shining 'G' emblem on her chest. It was someone who was apart of Team Galactic, but she seemed a little different than the other members, she had an intense glare on her face, and her smile pierced through even the coldest blizzard. Aegis backed up just a little, knowing that this was one of his enemies, and he knew where this was going to end up.
"W-Who are you?" Aegis said as he shivered, now noticing the cold was getting to him. The lady then tilted her hip out and relaxed her hand on it. Her smile then turned into a smirk and she sucked the cold air through her nostrils. "That, is none of your business child, but I do know all about you, you have caused trouble with us for some time now, according to Mars and Saturn." She then puffed out a cloud of white smoke and she then continued her conversation with her target. "I'm here to take the pokemon of 'Knowledge', of course I'm also here to rid of you. Saturn and Mars already took care of your friends that wanted to help protect the other lakes, so I guess you, Aegis, are my victim of this lake."
Aegis then felt a movement from underneath his feet. He then began to sweat, and he then fell backwards landing into freezing water. His body temperature began to drop quickly and he knew he was in trouble. From above, he saw a Golem looking down on him, watching the death scene of it's prey. Aegis tried swimming to the surface, but he noticed that a mysterious shadow was right beside the Golem, and the ice was reformed. He felt his breathe slowly dwindle away as he struggled to reach the ice from underneath. He then tried banging on it with his hands and arms, but his strength was weaker due to the water slowing down his momentum. His strength began to drain, and the more he struggled to save himself, the faster he was to his death. Aegis then pulled out a pokeball from his bag slowly, but it then slid out of his hand and it began to drop to the bottom. He then slowly turned his body towards the pokeball, but it was too late.
His movement stopped and he couldn't move a muscle, his body was practically frozen in the inside, and his strength was gone. His sight began to blur and he closed his eyes, now only seeing the darkness of his eyelids; He knew it was over now. He then felt a water current rise up to his lower back, steel claws wrapped around his body and he then felt the cold water leave his presence, now only feeling his shaking body sting in the cold air. He gasped for breath and his eyes slowly opened, realizing that his Empoleon must have been released once it touched the bottom of the lake, but it was quite lucky due to the fact that the white button on the pokeball was the only place on the pokeball that released a pokemon from it. He slowly turned his head and saw a Jupiter laughing at his pain. A Golem and a Snorunt stood by her side glaring at their prey.The Snorunt must've been the pokemon that was used to seal the crack within the ice. He had to be more careful knowing that they were above the lake. One wrong move, and they were done for.
Aegis didn't have the strength to move so he was relying on his Empoleon at the moment. Aegis then noticed that Jupiter pointed at them without making any expression. "You really think you can win this, boy?" Aegis slightly smiled at her even though his body was at his weakest. He trusted his pokemon and he knew that he even though he was unable to give out commands, his pokemon were strong enough to take on even the toughest of enemies. The Snorunt and golem then charged towards Aegis at full speed, they weren't even taking orders from Jupiter, which seemed quite strange, maybe they were bonded well with their master. The Empoleon then dashed towards the rushing pokemon and quickly jabbed them both with a quick thrust of it's beak, also known as Fury Attack. The golem was thrown back a little, but landed on it's feet because the move was practically ineffective. The Snorunt then quickly gained balance in the air and then used Icy Wind upon the Empoleon and Aegis. Empoleon was losing speed and it began to embrace ice all over it's body, but it protected Aegis from the attack with it's arms. Empoleon was a tad bit slower, but the attack wasn't too powerful. Empoleon then took in a large breath of air and then let out a powerful Blizzard attack in the air. It was way more powerful than the Snorunt's icy wind, but even still the Snorunt could handle it. However, The Snorunt fell down on the ice hard and it fell through thin ice. It then jolted strangely due to an electrical current flowing all throughout it's body and fell unconscious in the water.
Aegis, still in the arms of Empoleon noticed that the Snorunt had an electrical chip attached to it's back. The pokemon weren't being controlled by Jupiter at all, but it seemed like there were given commands with the chips implanted on them. Aegis was then filled with anger, knowing that scumbags like Team Galactic were using the pokemon for terrible intentions. He then leaped from Empoleon and jumped into the freezing water wrapping his arms around it. He then held on to the ice that floated on the water and he grunted his teeth at Jupiter. "I will kill you, and your grunts one by one… you, will be victim number one.' He then detached the chip from the Snorunt's back and the Snorunt felt a sense of relief. Aegis then slowly climbed out of the water and Jupiter then laughed, cackling at the young trainer's attempt to stop her. The Golem quickly stomped upon the frozen ice allowing large rock formations to rise from underneath the lake and the entire premises was broken into separate ice pieces, revealing the water that was once enclosed underneath the ice. Aegis was out of the way from the attack, but Empoleon was hit by the strong attack, flying backwards and felt badly injured, but it grew worried for it's master and it then dashed forward with aqua jet and skid across the water, grabbing the young trainer in midair while he was clinging unto the Snorunt.
The Empoleon then landed on one of the ice pieces and it noticed that it was moving away from Jupiter. Jupiter was standing on a platform of ice that was moving towards the island. "Uxie will be ours…" The Empoleon took a step towards the edge of the ice to take off after her, but Aegis then put his hand on the stomach of Empoleon. "No, Jupiter is clearly the stronger trainer right now, we need to get this little guy back to top condition." The Empoleon nodded and let the ice move back towards the shore. Once they reached the shore, the Empoleon hopped down and let Aegis sit down in the snow. Aegis then reached in his pocket and pulled out a small bottle of potion, and sprayed it on the Snorunt's bruises. The Snorunt was still hurt quite badly, but it felt a little better and it opened it's eyes looking at the trainer above him.
Aegis smiled seeing that the Snorunt was now awake and he wrapped him in his arms, warming him with his body heat. "You'll be alright, I promise." He then took out an empty pokeball and he touched the pokeball on Snorunt gently. The Snorunt was then put inside the pokeball for safety as they traveled back to Snowpoint City. Aegis then weakly stood up with the help of Empoleon, they were very tired from the encounter. All of a sudden they began to hear a helicopter noise from above. Aegis looked up realizing that there was a helicopter hovering right over the island in the middle of the lake. He squinted and found that jupiter had a strange glowing orb in her hand. Inside the orb… was Uxie, captured by the hands of Team Galactic themselves. A ladder dropped down from the helicopter and Jupiter grabbed unto it with one hand while allowing the orb to rest within her arm. The helicopter didn't hesitate to rise into higher altitudes even though Jupiter was dangling at the bottom of the ladder.
The ladder began to rise from the bottom of the aircraft, and Jupiter then looked back at Aegis smirking at him with a deadly glare, mocking his defeat. Aegis then crunched his fist as he watched the woman escape with the pokemon of knowledge. The helicopter slowly began to fade out of view and Aegis needed to think of a way to stop Team Galactic from going further with their plans, especially now that he and his friends failed to protect the pokemon of knowledge, emotions, and willpower. Things may have looked bad for Aegis, but he wasn't going to give up, his passion and love for pokemon was too great for anyone to beat him.
