The Grand Book of Pokemon by ArcticFrigidFrostFox The Grand Book of Pokemon by ArcticFrigidFrostFox
Turns out Pokémon really existed, a long time ago... and every single one of them was not born as a Pokémon. A large group of magicians roamed the planet, turning humans of all races into all kinds of creatures... the creatures we know as Pokémon today. Research tells of a certain book that the people of the fellowship used to transform their victims. Though, the book, along with the evil group of wizards, suddenly vanished from the face of the earth. Over the decades, the once-human Pokémon lived their lives, died and eventually became extinct. Nobody ever saw any Pokémon, nor any of the wizards again... and the tale became a myth... a legend... and eventually, a forgotten story.

Some (un)lucky fellow found the dust-covered book in an old, abandoned and damp basement... and apparently recited the wrong words from the wrong page. Now, there's no way of stopping the magic transforming his body completely... and there's no way back, too. At least, not with this book.




Lucario TF.

Practicing coloring some more. :) Lazy background though, I blame the time! (3 AM) It's supposed to be a table the book is on. Added the aura sensors and the light effects in Photoshop because OC is too simplistic for it.

I think we all learned an important lesson today: If you find a strange book that you know nothing about, don't just start reading random words you don't understand.

...Unless, of course, you want something like this to happen to you, in which case, who am I to stop you?

You mean if he's being sucked into the book? Nope, on the contrary: the magic of the book is being sucked into him! He'd be the first real life Pokémon in ages. ;P

My reaction would be very different. But I prefer other Pokémon than Lucario.

I wanted a deeper TF trigger than just "a spellbook". I let it bubble my mind for a bit and eventually came up with the idea of it having a secret, ancient past, along with an explanation for the fictive past existence and extinction of Pokémon in the real world. :) I used a Lucario for this because I love them. :heart:

I -might- continue this with other Pokémon in the future (just an idea).

I kinda accidentally removed the comment. Can't believe it's been a year since I said it. o.o Well anyway, here's the riddle: I have an end but no beginning, a home but no family, a space without room. I never speak but there is no word I cannot make. What am I?
