It is the year 20XX, the future of the Pokemon World. Old customs are met with new, advanced technologies, new ways to travel, new ways to live your life, and new ways to capture and raise Pokemon.
The Pokeball… What is THAT thing? Such a device has now become obsolete in the art of Pokemon training. The device everyone uses nowadays, invented by none other than Silph Co., is the PokeScanner. It’s a PokeBall, a Pokedex, a PokeGear, and a storage system all in one hand held device. It fires the same beam used in PokeBalls to capture and send out Pokemon, but unlike the Pokeball, if a wild Pokemon breaks out upon attempted capture, it will do no damage to the PokeScanner, whereas the ball would break and become useless. Such a great invention immediately became standard for managing Pokemon, and the PokeBall’s only use now is to be displayed at the history museums. It even removed the hassle of carrying the mentioned items separately all the time, as all six of your Pokemon party, as well as their PokeDex entries, can be stored in the PokeScanner, and deposited into the PC wirelessly. While this invention proves to be superior, it still has its limitations, which are mostly intentional. To retain the challenge and spirit of Pokemon capturing, Wild Pokemon can still break out of the PokeScanner if they aren’t weakened, and each breakout decreases the scanner’s battery power, forcing trainers to have to recharge it after use. Also, it only has the power of a regular PokeBall, and people have to purchase upgrades to build its capture rate. There is only one scanner in existence, however, that is completely devoid of these problems: the Master Scanner. With this, all Pokemon shot by the beam will be captured without fail, the Master Ball of the new age. Unfortunately, such a great invention did not go unnoticed by the public. Unfortunately, it is now in the hands of evil.
Much like the past, a new team of Pokemon Thieves has arisen in the nation. There only goal is to steal valuable and unique items in the world, including rare and shiny Pokemon. Named based on the cunning, devious Pokemon, Murkrow, this criminal organization became known as the Dark Wing. The Dark Wing, lead by a man named Nathaniel Burglor, have infiltrated the office building of Silph Co. and successfully stole the Master Scanner, giving them the ability to duplicate it with the help of their professional scientists and technologies. The Dark Wing then went on a rampage, capturing all sorts of powerful, rare Pokemon with ease, and using their power to terrorize and steal from civilians all over the nation. No one could stop them, not even the police, until now.
A scientist, who developed the PokeScanner for Silph, decided to take a stance against the Dark Wing, who are misusing his own invention. His name is Dr. Ein Robertson, and he gathered some of the best trainers in the nation to form a police force capable of countering the Dark Wing. He named them after the great hunter species of Pokemon, Staraptor: the Pokemon Star Squad. With their protection, the nation finally breathes a sigh of relief that someone can stand up against the thieves, but Burglar is aware of this, pleased to finally have a challenge.
Currently, the Pokemon Star Squad's base of operations is located in the city of Ununbium, on an artificially made island called Dream Island, located near the coast of the Kanto/Johto regions, and are actively receiving calls from people of the other regions to aid them in the fight against the Dark Wing. Will you put an end to Burglor's reign of terror?
