The Guide to the Galactic Verse
The Guide to the GalacticVerse
Hello. For all of you familiar with my work, either through here or my fanfiction.net account The Blue Engine, my Pokemon stories fall under the universe name The GalacticVerse. This name is in relation towards my first major fic, Galactic, and a slight pun, as Team Galactic is trying to create their own world.
Here, I will provide details on characters, stories, plotlines and Pokemon that have appeared in my series, mostly through a system that is hopefully similar to that of the character biographies on Serebii.net. Everything will be split into a series by series basis, with accompanied questions and answers and general background knowledge and details about how the stories connect.
Here is a timeline towards all stories currently planned for the GalacticVerse, in chronological order:
A Wish on Freedom
The War of the Apocalypse – Prequel: The Ragged Riches
The First Warriors
The Sevii Stories – Book One: The End of Rocket
All That Glitters
The Moral Highground
Kris vs Gold
How to Conquer Kanto in Eight Easy Steps
The Sevii Stories – Book Two: The Psychic Connection
The War of the Apocalypse: The Sacred Island
The Tournament of the Ages
The War of the Apocalypse: The Seven Day War
The Sevii Stories – Book Three: The Grave of Water
The War of the Apocalypse: The End of the World
Links to the bits about each story in this thread will be provided. Only ones written about will be put in for now, with more information and more stories being added as time goes by. Links and blurbs of the stories will be put into the posts. Feel free to begin discussing or asking questions
- Red vs Leaf will not be included here, as it is being rewritten as The First Warriors.
Re: The Guide to the Galactic Verse
Time: January – April 2010
On New Year’s Day, Xavier Diamond, Matthew Pearl and the mysterious Vanessa sign up to begin their Pokemon stories, each with their own back-story and goals. Sahara Plattina moves to Sandgem with her mother, and is jealous of not being able to go on her journey. However, what seems like an average journey start takes a dramatic turn when Team Galactic strike Sandgem Town and Lake Verity.
After a dramatic battle, Xavier, Matthew, Vanessa and Sahara find themselves dragged into a war against Team Galactic, a violent terrorist group with mysterious intentions behind their explosive actions. Sahara runs away after a boy, Charles Golden, falls from the sky, and the two plan to journey together until Galactic takes him away.
The four Dex Holders confront Galactic as they travel between the regions gyms, meeting interesting people along the way that aide and hinder them as they get closer to discovering Galactic’s intentions. The four battle personal demons though: Sahara has three uncontrollably multiple personalities with mysterious powers that Galactic wants, Vanessa’s past is shrouded in mystery and lies, Xavier finds himself trying to cope with a lack of emotions, and Matthew’s morals are questioned as their journey gets more violent. Charles begins to question what Team Galactic’s motives are as they become more violent, and learns they are involved in the Sinnoh Time-Space Legend.
