Chapter 2: The great book
They went inside and Mark looked around. In a large bookcase Mark saw an intresting-looking book called Pokémon legends – old and new legendary pokémon and pokémon-related things. By the size of the book, Mark got the feeling that it included more than just those normal, boring legendary pokémon everyone has already caught. As a matter of fact, he also had the odd feeling that he just had to read that book, so he asked:
“Can I read a book?”
“Guess you can,” said the woman like she didn’t care what he did and went into another room.
“Thanks,” Mark said and drew the book out. It was dusty. The woman certainly did not seem to be very intrested in reading about legendary pokémon. He opened the book.
Part I: Legendary Pokémon
“Wow! Molzapart, Rainteicune, Hogia, Chaletwo, Waraider, Flamer, Hydrocean, Electrone, Leafer, Freezer, Psycon, Darkan, Dracolor, Dragoreen, Dragored, Dragoblue, Dragold, Dragowhite, Dragoblack – I’ve never heard of any of those!” Mark was delighted. He turned to page 17.
Molzapart is a mix between Articuno (see pages 4 - 6), Zapdos (pages 7 – 9), Moltres (pages 10 - 12), and Mew (pages 13 – 15). It is the most powerful pokémon, apart from Chaletwo (page 37). There is only one that was born when Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres and Mew were at Seafoam Islands. They saw the ultra-powerful Mist stone (see page 74) and thought is was a Geodude, so they attacked it. Articuno used Blizzard, Zapdos used Thunder, Moltres used Fire blast and Mew used Psychic. These attacks all hit the Mist stone at once so it broke. Most of the parts scattered all around the Islands, but, the middle part of the Mist stone was left. It stood right before the eyes of the legendary birds and Mew, it glowed after the Fire blast, sparks came out of it because of the Thunder, it was frozen solid because of the Blizzard and it was flying a few cm from earth because of Mew’s Psychic. And it turned to life. It transformed into an ultra-powerful pokémon with Moltes’s head, Zapdos’s body and Articuno’s wings and tailfeathers. It didn’t look like Mew at all, but it had Mew’s psychic powers. Why? Who knows. It attacked them with Peck, but they were quick enough to avoid the attack an run. Then, Molzapart started to train itself and at last it reached level 100. But it wanted more, it wanted to become the most powerful pokémon ever, so it trained even more and with help from its psychic powers, it finally managed to get over level 100 with experience. When it then reached level 255, it used all of its psychic powers to get farther and got itself to level 256. After that, it had to rest for three years but then it could train itself forever without help from the psychic powers. No one knows for now what level Molzapart is currently on. Molzapart learns these attacks:
Molzapart is Fire/Electric/Ice/Psychic/Flying-type and can know five attacks at the same time. Its pokédex data is “If some trainer thinks he can capture it, nothing can stop it from killing the trainer and his pokémon and use its psychic powers to make everyone forget the trainer, even his parents.”
“Better not try to catch that one,” Mark thought. “What about Rainteicune?”
He turned to page 27.
Rainteicune is a mix between Raikou (page 18), Entei (page 21) and Suicune (page 24). It was born when Raikou, Entei and Suicune were on their race around the Johto world when a terrible thing happened; they all crashed into each other. It knocked them out, of course, and they all died there. Suicune died first. It turned into a pool of dirty water. But when the water touched Entei’s body, it died, too, and turned into ashes. But just as the water touched Entei, it touched Raikou, wich was still alive, but couldn’t move or even open its eyes. Without thinking, it let of its last Thunder in defense, and then died.
The little life left in Raikou went with the Thunder straight to the place where Suicune’s water and Entei’s body touched each other and Entei died. A Thunder with some life in it can turn dead pokémon back to life. So the Thunder with Raikou’s life turned Entei and Suicune back to life and the three mixed into the resulting pokémon, Rainteicune, wich had Suicune’s head and “ribbons”, Raikou’s body and tail and Entei’s “clouds” and feet. Rainteicune is Fire/Water/Electric-type and learns these attacks:
Rainteicune’s maximum stats at level 100 are: 433 HP, 328 Attack, 328 Defense, 328 Speed, 328 Special Attack, 328 Special Defense.
“That’s a good one,” Mark thought. “I’ll bet Hogia is some mix between Ho-oh and Lugia.” And he turned to page 34.
Hogia looks very much like Ho-oh (page 28) but the feathers on the head are different and also the colors of the tail-and-wingfeathers. It also learns different attacks. It learns Aeroblast, wich only Lugia (page 31) learns apart from Molzapart (page 17), wich after all knows every damaging attack of Fire, Electric, Ice, Psychic and Flying. That’s why it’s called Hogia. It is Fire/Flying-type and learns:
The strangest thing about this pokémon is how it learned Transform. Few legends mention Hogia.
“A mysterious pokémon with Transform. Let’s look at Chaletwo,” Mark muttered and turned to page 37.
Chaletwo is equally powerful as Molzapart (page 17). Only one exists once every year. It always appears at the same place, just out of Green town, in the grass down from the Pokémon center. It appears at 4: 26: 45 PM at the 25th of May. There is a clock in the pokémon center that tells the exact timing for people that want to see Chaletwo. It looks like a Mewtwo (page 16) except that its eyes are extremely powerful and it has to keep its eyes closed to avoid destroying everything. It travels across time like Celebi (page 35) and always travels one year to the future, turns to every direction and then goes again. Chaletwo’s eyelids are the only thing that can resist the power streaming from its eyes, and even with its eyes closed, Chaletwo can see through anything. When it’s turning on it’s once-a-year appearence, it’s actually checking the whole Earth for bad problems. The truth is that even though it’s a Dark/Psychic type, it’s good, not evil, and if it sees a really bad problem, it travels back to the start of the problem and tries to fix it. Chaletwo also thinks very fast, so it does not need to stop to think, wich means the Earth is scanned for bad problems once a year and Chaletwo will fix everything that goes wrong. Just as it has turned around, tons of information stream to its brain and Chaletwo has worked it all out and is gone before you can say anything. Chaletwo’s psychic powers are incredibly strong, it has very powerful stats and is level 4739 when this is written. Its Special attack and Speed are rumoured to be even higher than Molzapart’s, but the Attack, Defense and Special defense of Molzapart are slightly higher than Chaletwo’s. When Chaletwo opens its eyes, one could see they are bright yellow if one wouldn’t be dead before, but it never does. The attack when it opens its eyes is called Death Stare. It also knows Psychic, Future Sight and Teleport, and Chaletwo can also learn Mirror coat, Ancient power, Mind reader, Confusion, Psybeam, Psych up, Psywave, Recover, Reflect and Barrier. Its abilities to control the weather are also said to give it Gust, Whirlwind, Powder Snow, Blizzard, Thunder, Rain dance, Sunny day, Sandstorm, Earthquake, Haze, Mist, Icy wind, Moonlight, Morning Sun, Razor leaf, Razor wind, and Solarbeam.
“Wow! It’s the 10th of May today! If I get to Green town within two weeks, I can see it!” Mark was exited by knowing this. He turned to page 63.
Waraider is a legendary pokémon that few people know. It is a white flying unicorn, Normal/Flying type, and knows Horn attack, Fury attack, Horn Drill, Wing attack, Double kick, Jump kick, Hi jump kick, Stomp, Mega kick and Gust. Its evolutions all know these attacks and more, they will all be described on the next page. Waraider and its evolutions all race around in company, and try not to be caught. They are said once to have been only Waraiders, but when they were all near a town, some kids started throwing stones at them, but didn’t notice many of the stones they threw at them were evolution stones which evolved the Waraiders as they hit them. The pokémon ran away, only two of them were still Waraiders, and one unfortunately stepped on a part of the Mist stone (page 74) and evolved too. After that, the last Waraider became the leader of them all.
Flamer is the fire evolution of Waraider, evolved with a Fire stone. In addition to Waraider’s moves, it learns Ember, Fire spin, Flame wheel, Flamethrower, Fire Blast, Sunny day, Sacred fire, Morning sun, and Fire punch. Its tail and mane are made of fire, like Ponyta’s, but its body is white.

In addition to Waraider’s moves, it learns Thundershock, Thunder wave, Spark, Thunderbolt, Thunder, Thunderpunch and Zap cannon.

In addition to Waraider’s moves, it learns Confusion, Psybeam, Teleport, Barrier, Light screen, Mirror coat, Psych up, Amnesia, Agility, Future sight, Hypnosis, Dream eater, Meditate, Kinesis, Psychic, Psywave, Reflect and Rest. Its mane, tail, wings and horn are purple, but the body is white.
Darkan is a little different from the others, as its wings are those of a bat and it has sharp teeth. It is the dark evolution of Waraider, evolved with a Moon stone. In addition to Waraider’s moves, it learns Pusuit, Bite, Crunch, Faint attack and Thief. It is completely black.
“Those are interesting... but I’d like to see Dracolor!” Mark turned to 65.
This is a baby pokémon. It can evolve into Dragoreen, Dragored, Dragoblue, Dragold, Dragowhite or Dragoblack. They all learn different moves at different levels. Dracolor starts with Bite and Tail whip but doesn’t learn anything else. It’s a Dragon/Flying type, although the wings are small and can barely keep it in the air. It evolves at level twenty, but it will always evolve into Dragoreen if nothing special is done. According to the legend, it needs to be treated in a special way in order for it to evolve into other evolutions. Those “requirements” will be described on the next page. Dracolor is a Baby dragon pokémon. Its evolutions are Dragon pokémon. Dracolor is green, but its color changes when it evolves into an “advanced” evolution, or so are the evolutions that need special requirements called.
“Now, THAT’s a true legendary! A dragon! The evolutions must be cool!” Mark turned to the next page.

The next page, page 67, had a note on it.
As the author of a book about legendary pokémon, I had to talk to many people. One, who chose not to be named in the book, told me about Molzapart and Rainteicune, and said he/she had seen both of them, knew their attacks and even pokedex datas. What you see in this book about them is exactly what that person told me. The information on the others comes from the legends mentioning them.
Mark closed the book, turned to Charmander and said:
“Charmander – I’m going to be a legendary collector! I’m going to catch every single legendary pokémon in the world!”
