Two shiny sapphire-blue eyes open weakly, reflecting the eerily orange clouds high above. A roar of thunder sounds with a bright flash of lightning.
…What is this place?
The eyes blink slowly. Two small paws feel the damp soil and are raised into the owner’s line of vision. Their fine pale pink fur is stained with red.
Another couple of blinks. The pupils move quickly from side to side for a second before the creature shakily rises onto its large hind legs. It examines itself with a puzzled look on its simple face.
Why… where does all this blood…
Slowly, fearfully, the creature looks up.
It sees death.
Humans and Pokémon alike lie sprawled on the ground, some mutilated, some whole, but all dead or dying. Mothers clutch their children in their arms. Abandoned houses burn in the background.
Blood, so much blood…
Next to the creature lies a large, somewhat humanoid Pokémon, its leathery gray skin bruised and its powerful violet tail torn and slashed. The creature looks sadly at the stab wound through the Pokémon’s heart and then up to its limp, catlike head. A blank expression crosses its face as it observes the facial features.
All of a sudden, the creature’s triangular ears perk up as its eyes scan the area carefully. Now ignoring the horror all around, it locks its gaze onto a spot close by. It takes silent, wingless flight, using its thin tail for balance.
The creature comes to a slow halt when it arrives next to the remains of a black pardus-like Pokémon’s head. Wavy markings and spikes on its sides glow with a bright alien green color through the crust of dried blood. Its right eye has been torn apart while the left is missing altogether.
The green glow of the head’s markings gradually fades into a sapphire blue color matching with the pink creature’s now tear-filled eyes.
Is this… is it my work?
The lifeless town knows no answer.
