Today seems to be just like any other day. The sun is shining, bird pokemon are flying and pokemon battles go on like normal. Except one thing is missing, EVERY SINGLE HUMAN ON THE FACE OF THE PLANET! Traces of the people still remain, such as empty cars, abandoned buildings and all technology up until the time frame of Black and White but there are no pokemon trainers anywhere to be found.
Immediately pokemon around the globe begin to come up with theories as to what has happened: Could they have been turned into zombies? Did they have to suddenly flee the earth and go into space? Maybe they all turned into candy and got eaten? Could it be that they all have gone inside the dream of dream and are trapped? No pokemon knows for sure. One would think that this new world without humans would be paradise but it turns out to be much more similar to a kind of apocalypse.
Food marts are looted, buildings are destroyed for no reason and pokemon take over territory all over the place. The only sanctuary recognized by all sides are pokemon centers. Even though most of them quickly get run down due to lack of maintenance, the centers are practically the only places around where battling is discouraged. Pokemon gyms which were once a symbol of excellence become hot spots for conflict, as powerful pokemon try to take the structures over for themselves. In some towns, gangs of pokemon roam the streets looking for others to fight with. The pokemon world has become a free for all and everyone is invited, whether they want to be or not.
A few days into the madness a rumor or perhaps a myth, starts spreading that there might be a way to bring the humans back and return things to the way they used to be. However, some pokemon like things as they are and will do anything to make sure that humanity does not come back..
