Do not dismiss this story as fictional. Every aspect of this story has truly happened to me and to my copy of PMD: Blue Rescue Team. Though I understand that a certain character in the story is incorrectly portrayed, I did not do this to the time, thus I had no control over the events that follow.
It all began with a simple cartridge. I slipped in my PMD: Blue Rescue Team game, and started it up. Everything seemed quite normal-the introduction had no changes, everything was the same. I erased my save file, and began to play on a new file. It asked the usual questions, including a final question in place of the ‘Are you a boy or a girl?’ question.
It asked ‘Are you ready?’. The only replies were ‘Yes’ and ‘No’. I shrugged-my best friend was a great hacker, when I lent the game to him, he had probably hacked it. I chose ‘Yes’ and got my result.
‘You seem to be…the naughty type. You like to be bluntly honest with your replies, no matter how cruel they seem, and you seem to be misunderstood. You also love to pin things on others so they get into trouble. Maybe you should lighten up a bit.’ I read over my result many times. This wasn’t normal! But it did, indeed, describe me perfectly. I shrugged-my friend must’ve hacked that in, as well. So I went on. My result, for some reason, was a Gastly-I knew you couldn’t get that through the normal quiz. I shrugged it off again-once more, it must’ve been my friend.
When the game began, I was not in the forest you usually woke up in. Instead, I was in a rescue team base, asleep. A text box appeared at the bottom of the screen. A talk bubble was next to it, signifying that I had no clue who it was yet. “Hey, Gastly! Get moving-our team starts up today!” My character woke up, dazed and confused. His expression changed to one of annoyance. “Geez, does Ekans ever quit? Whatever.” Then he turned to the screen. “I guess you should save before moving on. I have a bad feeling about this!” I nearly gasped. He broke the fourth wall. Cool. Again-my friend must’ve done this. I dismissed it and saved, then left the base.
By the time I had left, I had a Medidite and Ekans waiting for me outside the base. The Ekan’s face was annoyed. “C’mon, let’s gp! We need to start up our team, and you’re slowing us down!” My character floated over to Ekans, and, in a cutscene reminiscent of Explorers of Sky, started him down. “I. Never. Slow. Anyone. Down.” The Gastly snarled, appearing quite frightening. The Ekans trembled. “G-got it. Anyways, l-lets go!” So, when the cutscene ended, I left and headed down. The dungeons available were Sinister Woods and, for some reason, Sky Tower. I braced myself and went to Sinister Woods, preparing for a fight.
After I got into the dungeon, I saw that my team was extremely underleveled-about leveled 5(Ekans and Mediidte) and 10(Gastly/Me). The good news was, that I could just float right to the stairs. To my surprise, instead of fighting Team Meanies-which I was playing as at the moment, so it shouldn’t have surprised me at all-we fought my old team known as Team Normalblue. A Skitty and Totodile attempted to clobber my ‘new’ team. In another cutscene, Gastly/Me leapt in front of the team, and shielded them from every attack. He fell to the floor, gasping and sweating. He whimpered, tears showing in his eyes, as he stared up at Skitty and Totodile. The two of them delievered the finishing blow. The screen cut to black.
Another text box appeared, and the following conversation ensued
Gastly: …My head…Wh-what..Happened?
Ekans’ siluette appeared onscreen, though most of it was still black. Its body was surrounded by a red, ominous liquid-blood. I reassured myself that my friend had hacked it.
Medidite wasn’t any better-in fact, she didn’t speak at all. She was out cold-but not dead.
The screen cut to black, and a single text box appeared before the game froze.
Gastly: Why…why were you so mean to us?
After that day, I took out the game and headed to my friend’s house. “Take your dumb Pokemon Mystery Dungeon hack. I don’t want it.” I mused, handing it to him. He started at me in confusion.

One day I was walking around. I was thinking of things to do. I loved pokemon, and never got why SOOOO many people loved generation 1. So, I went to a game stop. I looked for fire red or leaf green. Then, in the new isle, surprisingly, I found pokemon red. I put it on the counter. The cashier scanned It. It was $5.50. I walked back home. I was happy. Very happy. The cashier didn’t get all scared when he handed it to me, so it wasn’t going to be a hack. I got home. Being a 2000s kid, It was surprising to know I still had my game boy advance.I plopped the game in my game boy. The menu screen popped up. It was the normal fire red screen. I press start and made a new file. Do do da, professor oak popped up. I said I was a boy, my name was Cyrus, and my rivals name was Isaac, my brother. Then started the adventure. I walked outside. It was raining. I talked to a girl fishing. She said, “It’s raining today. This is a good day to go fishing!” I walked into oak’s lab to find him in their. When I talked to professor Oak he said, “What bad whether today.” Then, my rival came inside.
Isaac said, “Grandpa, I heard you had pokemon. This better be true. I had to walk in the rain to get here!” Then oak said, “Why yes, I do have pokemon. Cyrus, choose your pokemon. Isaac, be patient.” I chose bulbasaur. My rival actually chose squirtle. We didn’t battle. When I went out of the lab, Oak yelled, “WAIT! I need to give you this pokedex. I think this could help you uncover all the pokemon out there. Have fun!” I walked into the tall grass and found a pidgey. I fainted it, gained experience, and took off. I got into route one, and got greeted by a young kid. He said, “My mommy said I had to be nice! You look like a good person! Take these!” I received 5 pokeballs and running shoes. This game was not fire red. This was like a hidden region. I continued.
I had to take a different path to a different route. This was AWESOME! The people liked me, my rival wasn’t a butt, and my pokemon were faint machines! Lavender town didn’t even have the pokemon tower. Was this pokemon fun land? I had gotten to the elite four. I had a venusaur, beedrill, nidoking, pidgeot, machamp, and golbat.
The elite four and the champion were a piece of cake. I got home afterwards. My rival was in my home. He said, “We made you cake to congratulate you on your win!” After the day was over, I saw my character sleeping. Then it happened. An earthquake. It woke my character up. When the earthquake ended, I went outside. It was no earthquake. There were psycho pokemon everywhere. The people besides me and my rival were a pixel mess. They were coming. For me. I thought to myself, in the game, “I am NOT using my pokemon!” My trainer went inside and grabbed a glitched looking kitchen knife. He went outside. He killed pokemon. He didn’t faint them, but turned them into pixel messes. After 2 minutes, the brutal massacre stopped.
The music became silent. My pokemon got out of their pokeballs. They stared at me. They cried. Then my Venusaur talked in English. “I know you want to save us and keep us alive, but you went so far to kill all of these pokemon? How twisted are you?” Then moltress came. My character stabbed the moltress and it was a burning pixel mess. My Venusaur said to me, “This is how much you love us? We might as well help you. These wild pokemon are trying to kill the person that made us the fainting beasts that we are. We should help you now.” Then, without my control, my character and my pokemon started making giant pixel messes. The game boy saved the progress. Then after it was over, my pokemon and my character said, “We did it!” My god.

I was bored when I saw a blue gameboy advance game cartridge laying on the couch. I looked at the title and it said Pokemon. 2 questions formed in my head.
1. What version is this? And 2. When did we get this cartridge? I asked my sisters about it and they had the same questions I thought of. We sat on the couch with the game in one of our Gameboy Advance sps. The opening was completely skipped and so was the title. In the intro, it shows Arceus’s sprite saying, “Chibi, you and your friends must save our world.” And sure enough my fan character(Chibi) showed and shrunk abit. Then The game started with my character in my room.I checked my trainer card and it showed my fan character doing his Victory stance. I checked my pokemon as well and my character was in it without any moves but has big stats but his level was 5. I closed out of the pokemon section and saved. I turned the game off and we watched tv for awhile. After looking up for any traces to see if this game was a hack my sisters came into my room with with 2 more pokemon gameboy advance games. Lauren’s cartridge was purple and Gwen’s cartridge was black. Thay inserted their new pokemon games into their Gameboy advance sps And they were thrown into the game as their fan characters. We decided to connect the games after my sisters saved. We hooked up our games with the thing that let’s gameboys connect with each other. And when we left our houses, our characters walked up to each other and were talking about normal stuff and then, we walked to route 1 together and saw team rocket using whips on pidgeys and saw some pidgey sprites on the ground that were too tired to move. A rocket walked up to the tired Pidgey group with an axe and I made my character intercept him with a… sword? Gwen’s character(Hichigo), sliced some grunts with whips in half and Lauren’s character(Rare), blasted the rest with energy blasts. The pidgeys seemed happy that we destroied those Rocket Grunts and a text box showed up that said,”Chibi: I’m so glad that you guys are safe, but Hichigo, why did you go overboard again?” We pressed A since we were actually playing on the out field. More texted showed up that said,”Hichigo: I like killing people, shows a ton of blood.^_^” We pressed A again and more text showed up that said,”Rare: Shouldn’t we get going to see your father, Dialga in Time town?” And Gwen asked me,”Trent, I think this game is a hack.” and I said,”I know that.” We went to Time town and their were dead bodies on the ground covered in their guts. Hichigo said,” What is going on here?” What the heck, did the game actually talked? We kept going until Chibi fell down a pit fall trap after 10 steps and it was a big one. Chibi flew out with his wings spread out. I checked his trainer card and it was Chibi with wings and some big scratches and one of them was bleeding. My character was using his wings to move around and I saw Dialga since Gwen and Lauren were buying items. Dialga said,”My son, I’m sorry that this happened to the town, I was too weak….and I got real-” He collapsed right there and Chibi said,” Father…FATHER!” I checked my team and saw that Dialga was in it. I checked his stats and it’s hp was at 1, it’s status was near death. I closed out of the menu and pressed A on my Character and the only option was Like Give. I selected it and a text box appeared that said:Chibi used Life Give. Dialga was healed. Chibi died. And then the saved on it’s own. And this time, I was put to a title screen and it said Pokemon. The picture showed a red Arcues in a black background. Gwen looked at my screen and said,”You better continue with the game Trent. I think this is important.” So I did and a text box showed up that said,” Arceus: He gave his live up to save his father, I’ll give him his life back as well.” I pressed A and more text said,” Arceus used Life Returner.” I pressed A and more text said,: Chibi was revived. Chibi learned Live Returner. And then the game saved again and I was put to the title screen but it changed. The title now said Pokemon Chibi version. And It showed a picture of Chibi in his standing stance. And to this day, me and my sisters never played those hacked games in a while.

So, one day after Summer Break began, I was asking my mom
“PLEASE can we go to New York City? I have been waiting three years for this game! Nintendo World is only a short drive away!”
“Short drive!? We are in Maryland!”
“But all we need to do is go on the Baltimore Beltway, then go on John F. Kennedy Memorial Highway, go through a few tollbooths on the Delaware Turnpike, then after going on the New York Turnpike, your in Rockefeller!”
“I said no!”
“GRRRF” I grunted.
I stomped upstairs to my PC. I looked for some music, but for some reason this Pokemon game came up. “Pokemon Black Death version…” I murmured to myself. I decided it was worth it and downloaded it. It was a third gen game so it worked for my Visual Boy Advance. There was the normal Sapphire title screen that lasted around two seconds as I started the game up. A odd, demented wall of faces and a quick beeping noise came up, and then I was in the game as Red. I decided to look in my bag. I had a Laevateinn from some old story I heard about in history, a bloodied hammer, six broken Poke-balls, a odd pocket watch, and a stacked item called pile of knives. I was in a strange place with a river of mist. I floated on the mist, slowly reaching the end of the cave I was in. After a long walk, I came across my Lugia I named Lew. I interacted with it and a battle began. Red stayed there, not sending out any Pokemon at all. The options was fight, bag, status, and friendship. I decided I would look through the fight option. Red had Stab, Punch, Kill, and Torture. I decided I would hit friendship, when a text box appeared saying “Friendship? Love…? I… I hate… no I shouldn’t say… I… I… I LOVE YOU!!!” and after that the text box saying “Lugia looooooooooohate loves you and opened his arms. Fall into his embraced?” and I chose yes. Another text box appeared saying “Lugia’s embrace was a trap!” and a anime-like animation of Lugia slowly strengthening his grasp on Red. Lugia smiled dementedly as he saw Red’s face going from red to blue, but Red was still conscious. Lugia wrapped his neck around Red’s mouth, then his neck. Lugia then bit into Red’s neck, and it went back to the actual game. Red began running without me touching any buttons and rammed into my… Emboar? A text box came up saying “Why didn’t you die to Lord Black Death?” I decided it probably wasn’t a good idea to interact with it, so I moved on down into an odd hallway now that I was in control. Lavender town music slowed down was playing I saw something in the corner of the screen. I took one step and someone in a grim reaper skin said “Once you can face your own death without fear, you might go into a deeper side. (The lavender town music sped up here) Do you think you can face your own death without fear, Jeff? (Jeff is my name I use for creepy pasta sites)” and two options came up. The Lavender Town music was sped up a lot more than usual. I decided to choose yes… which now that I look back might have been the gravest mistake I ever made. Red smiled with a broken look and tears streaming down his face. Two giant wings shaped like hands began to pull Red back into Lugia’s room. An anime-like animation of the grim reaper guy coming out from the shadows as Red was grabbed by Lugia played. I got kind of confused at this point. Is this game supposed to be scary? A text box came up saying “You must be so confused, you didn’t realize your current situation, did you, Jeff?” I felt a hand on my shoulder. I didn’t want to turn around- I was too scared to. As I was about to turn around a text box came up and the animation showed Red’s literally blue face. Red spoke in a text box saying “Don’t turn around!” and I felt something start to breathe into my ear loudly. I heard a deep voice say slowly “Turn around…” and, finally, I did. No one was there. My Visual boy advance wasn’t working, so I decided to get up and go ride my bike. My muscles wouldn’t work as I got to the door. My muscles were tightened, but they would not even force my leg out the door. I was thrown onto my bed by some kind of force. My VBA came up and an error said “Thank you for playing with Black Death. Black Death is so happy, he could be right behind you.” I swiftly turned around and the Lugia appeared behind me. I woke up with a jolt. I felt something fly pass me. I stepped out of bed and looked out my window. Nothing was there. After I almost fell asleep in bed, I felt something press down on my body. A Lugia silhouette was perched on my chest and said “Hello. I am Black Death. Welcome to my household.” Then, Lugia disappeared. I laid there in bed for years. I finally “woke up” and decided to tell my tale.

Today our rescue team FINALLY reached Lucario rank! I’m so excited! Pi and I are going to throw a party with everyone who helped us out to get this far! Team Alakazam, Caterpies family and friends, Gardevior, Absol, Dugtrio and Digglet, Mightyena, Mew, Latias, Latios, Ninetails, Xatu, and team meanie’s, it wouldn’t be right not to invite them, since we owe a great deal of our success to them, in a way. Oh what am I saying?! I’ll invite EVERYONE! It will be great! Though it might be hard to get enough food for everyone… But I saved so much money in the Persian bank just for this! Right?! We will finally be able to do something with that money instead of leaving it lying around! Having that much money just doesn’t feel right to me.
Anyway, even though I shouldn’t be having dreams anymore, because we saved Gardevior, I’ve been having… very interesting dreams lately. I can’t really tell much from them, but they don’t sound good… I’m worried.
Ah what am I worrying about dreams for? Tomorrow is a big day! I need to prepare and get a good night’s sleep.
I’m actually falling asleep as I write. I should go to bed.

I was just heading home from a Game Stop. The reason I was there was I wanted Pokemon White. Sadly some gamer group was there earlier ,and bought almost every Pokemon game there was there. Sudenly I had just remembered the Indie game store. I know what your thinking “OH a INDIE GAME STORE how stupid of you.” Yeah but I was very very desperate. So I headed there. I walked in the store and noticed the wall just of Pokemon games. I quickly headed there. Noticing the fact of no Pokemon White. They did have Pokemon White 2 for dirt cheap. I bought it than left. As soon as I walked into my home. I put it in my 3ds ,and began to turn it on.
I pressed A to see a saved acount
It said Novella, female Pokedex 356, time 97:59, and all eight badges. I was pretty suprised this girl put 98 hours into this game I was pretty curious on her. I pressed continue. She had last saved in Nimbasa city in frount of the amusment park:
I wanted to check out Novella’s pokemon. Her party had the following pokemon: chandelure lv 100 Male, zekrom lv 60, blastoise lv 41 male, heatran lv 68 male, kyurem lv 100, and charizard lv 41 female. I was amazed with her work in this game it was obvious I wasn’t deleteing this game. It was only 5 pm ,but I was tired. I took a nap. At 7 pm someone was knocking. I answered it. It was a girl she angry. “Hi…” I said staring at her. “DO YOU HAVE MY POKEMON WHITE 2 GAME!” she screamed at me. “Who are you?” I asked instead of giving her the game. “Novella and I know you have it so give it,” She snapped at me. “Novella sadly I sold it on eBay to a ITSMINENOWLEAVE.” I told her to leave after that. I went back to my room and began to play it. When it was to new game or continue it said Moeki instead of Novella. “…. Strange….” I thought out loud. Even the pokemon’s ot said Moeki. I played the game for 5 hours it was now midnight. I went to bed. Since I had took those photos I went to show my friend. “Huh strange Moeki maybe you should talk to that weird Novella girl,” She said. I tried to find Novella ,but I couldn’t. I don’t know why ,but I had turned on the Pokemon white 2 game this time the Pokemon had nicknames. They nicknamed : She, is gone, forever, give up, Moeki. I went back to the Indie game store ,and gave it to the clerk. Then I left. The next morning my friend told my she was playing a game with my name on the save file did I want it.

This all started on a Monday. I still can’t explain it outloud so I typed it. First I got on my Pokemon Crystal rom.
Nothing strange right? That’s what I was thinking aswell. Then I decied to check my pokemon.
The? Is all I could say besides I hadn’t got that far.Then “POKEMON RED” is what I said next. So I closed that rom and opening the Pokemon Red rom.
Appeared next I continued to my save. Then showed the overworld with my charater right beside the Cinnabar Island’s Famous East coast I decied to surf. On the first try I got a MISSINGNO.
I sadly already had one so I clicked run. Got Away Safely appered. Then I began to surf up and down to taunt the data ever more I encountered a Snorlax lv 135 then A Golduck lv 141 then Snorlax again. Then one more MISSINGNO.. (It was called MISSINGNO. the period was intented) Then finally what I hoped I was looking for. A wildlv 80 luckly I threw a masterball. Then the ditto it was my fist time catching so it kinda suprised me.
(This was against the ditto)I caught it aswell. after all that I hoped that was it. I returned to my crystal rom my pokemon still the same. “F***” I yelled in rage. I felt a bit sleepy so I went tobed. The next morning my friend emailed me
Subject:Pokemon & you
Messege:OMG I CALLED YOU LIKE FIFTY TIMES! Why didn’t you answer???:(! Anyways can I come over so we can trade! email me back. “Phone I didn’t hear it once.” I headed down stares to ask my little sister did the phone ring. All she said was “Phone I don’t think you need that go play pokemon crystal right now!” I didn’t move in confusion. She pushed me up the wall ,and screamed. I got out of her grip and ran my my friend’s house. I told her what my sister was doing. She came with me. This time my sister acted all innocent. my friend brought her DS so we traded. Finally I asked if I could spend the night. She responed with “Bring your laptop the one with the Crystal Rom!”

I used to be really into softmodding Pokemon games, such as Pokemon Firered. While I am a fan of Pokemon in general, I wouldn’t consider myself a diehard fan at all. Anyway, after getting the necessary programs, I did some cosmetic changes of a Firered rom I downloaded (My cartridge was harder to mod). Turning Pallet Town into a rocky area was fun, but I decided to up the ante a little bit.

Catch an Abra
I didn’t believe it when he told me. Part of me still didn’t believe it when the investigators turned up on my doorstep. I was his best friend, and he had been gone for a while now. My only choice was to tell them what he had told me, but as I told them, it was hard for me to believe that maybe, just maybe, it had all really happened. I can still hear Greg telling it all to me now…
