Final Rescue by DesShade Final Rescue by DesShade
Originally this was a thought for a story.
In mystery dungeon the entire purpose of the game is to aid and rescue Pokemon in need.
Taking that a step further I fell in love with the idea of journeying with your closest friends to protect others.
This image is a portrayal of Team Guardians Final Rescue.

Having grown up and grown old Pikachu and Kasai (charizard) are now accompanying their friends on their last mission.
Being caught in a rainstorm, Kasai offers them his wing for shelter and his flame for warmth.
San (jolteon) and Pikachu are exhausted from traveling, and while Pikachu rests against his closest friend, San revels in the warmth of the fire, as his conciousness continues to drift in his old age.
Absol and Houndoom are the youngest of the group, and the silent moments followed by the chorus of the rain give them time to reflect upon these memories. And lock them deep into their hearts one final time amongst their old but dearest friends.

Since time brings things their beginning, and their end, Pikachu, Kasai, Absol and Houndoom ultimately complete their last mission.
And with the memories and joys wrapped warmly in their hearts, they pay their last respects,
to Sans Final Rescue.

Omg your so precious!!
No, this was written on the spot after completing the picture.
I've never actually written anything down for this story-as is the case with most my ideas they end up lingering forever in my head.
I really am touched you would want to read it though.

Thank you so very much!

How touching. I have to wonder though, wouldn't the rain hurt that Charizard? Pokemon makes no sense at times, hehe.
Reply
:icondesshade:
DesShade Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2009
Oh man I used to wonder that as well.
But I saw plenty of Pokemon episodes as a kid where Charizard was fully submersed in water without any problem what'so'ever.
Which makes no sense to me personally, but I suppose their flame represents their will to live, meaning water wouldn't likely quell a desire that strong entirely.

there was an eposode with charmander and they said if the flame (it was raining) went out then it would die
Reply
:icondesshade:
DesShade Featured By Owner May 27, 2010
That is correct ^^
Thankfully Kasai's desire to protect his friends is what fuels his flame.
Meaning it could never go out with them so near by.
^.^ He loves em' too much~

God, I wish my Gameboy hadn't been stolen....

Is that the same Absol that saved you from Articuno?
Reply
:icondesshade:
DesShade Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2009
Perhaps ^^
Her back story is she was raised by an Ancient white Arcanine that inhabited the frozen woods.
She very well could be the same Absol that aids you when confronting Articuno.

Ok.
This is one of the most beautiful pieces of art I've ever seen. I love this.

I like the story you came up with for it too~ It's nice and real in a way.
...maybe I should do my own Poke.R.T stories as well.

Oh well. Great work! Continue to do great stuff like this, ok?

Oops... replied on the wrong one... lol.

You saw the original Special Episode of MD? The Squirtle from that episode becomes a main character in the Guardians Trilogy, under the name Blue, but the story is focused specifically on him rather than his team.

In Tides of Oblivion it's revealed that not all of the future Pokémon vanished; though never stated, it's implied that the Dusclops leading the shadow creatures is a MUCH younger Dusknoir. He even has a posse of Sableye as his elite guard.

So are Pikachu and Kasai retiring after this final mission or, dare i say it, gonna die?

I hope it's not the latter, they deserve a few more years of life.
