A candle was lit in the darkness.
This wasn't just any candle, however. This was a living, breathing creature - a Pokémon named Litwick.
Litwick hovered gently above the worn concrete path, gazing gently out at the ocean. Although it was a Fire-type, it still loved the way the beautiful moonlight shimmered on the wave's edges and lit up the water. It was quite peaceful out here, without any wind to disturb the nature's quiet beauty. Litwick gently landed on the concrete path with a sigh, gazing out across the horizon. He wished he could grow stronger and evolve, but he still had a long way to go.
From the darkness behind him crept a shadowy figure - the figure of a human, cloaked in complete shadows. The person was holding a dark PokéBall casually by his side, trying not to appear threatening.
Litwick turned around and recognized the PokéBall immediately. In sheer panic, he let out a Flamethrower, scorching a dark ashen mark through the concrete. However, the figure jumped to avoid the attack and threw the PokéBall at Litwick. The Pokémon's life force was absorbed into the PokéBall and he was lost forever.
However, that was not the only death to happen in this treacherous night...
When the sun rose the next morning, the body of another Pokémon was found, laying still and not moving or breathing. The cause of the Pokémon's death was unknown, but further investigation revealed that this was not Team Plasma's doing.
This was done by another Pokémon.
It is now Day 3. This phase will end at 1:00 PM EST on August 26th.
