A bright yet cold sun rose up over the region of Unova, illuminating the snow of winter. The morning was clear, and snowbanks of up to a foot high dominated the landscape. Unova was a beautiful land, and the large cities and small villages of the regions had yet to be built.
Meanwhile, in the forest that is now home to Kanoko Town, the rebel Pokemon were making camp. The humans, who were currently in the area that would soon become Huin City, were busy working. Several drilling platfoms had been set up already, and strange, clear-blue colored rocks were being pulled up from the ground by the dozen. They let off a dull glow that lit up the snow on the ground and the faces of Cyrus's minions.
The rebel Pokemon were busy fortifying the area where they currently resided, creating a wall out of sharp thorn bushes. They were all much too aware of the clear blue rocks that resided beneath their feet, and all were prepared to defend their land from the humans.
Victini wandered through the forest, coming closer and closer the the ocean that seperated them from the humans. All he could do was hope that the humans couldn't see them.
