"Arcanine look out!"

A Psychic blast sent the sheriff's Arcanine flying back, almost hitting its trainer, and crashing into the side of a building, unconscious. The police, Resistance and trainers had done what they could to try to contain Mewtwo over the preceding hours, but their efforts were in vain as it continued to crush their attempts. The already weakened Resistance were no longer able to muster enough firepower to keep the legendary in check and the police lines were being broken. Officers Doom and Snowbro tried to return their fainted leads but were picked up with psychic energy and thrown down the street; Mewtwo did not discriminate between people and Pokemon. Leader Ichi tried to use his own Starmie's psychic power to resist Mewtwo but it was overwhelmed, and they met the same fate.

As explosions went off around the city, the Trio and Tactic fought side-by-side with their full teams out. Gray's Blastoise, Butterfree, Dugtrio, Tauros, Hitmonchan and Ponyta all sent elemental attacks into the air, attempting to hit Mewtwo as it flew around wreaking havoc. The same could be said for Yob's Venasaur, Parasect, Clefable, Blissey, Dunsparse and Yanma, who managed to evolve into Yanmega through the tribulations of the fight for their lives, alongside Tene's Kabuto which evolved into Kabutops, battling next to her Umbreon, Hypno, Gengar and Ariados.

"Tene, I may not have mentioned this before, but seeing as we really need all the help we can get..." Gray started, "I know you have another Pokeball on your belt. I remember seeing it since Viridian, and that time in the Power Plant ...you used it to save us."

"Not unless it gets bad enough," Tene responded before muttering to herself, "I can do this without help."

Their teams battled on through the frenzy but one by one they began to be knocked out by stray psychic blasts from Mewtwo. The Pokemon Centre began to be engulfed in flames, while houses collapsed around it.

"Uh, Zombie. Anytime now would be great. Maybe stop polishing your stones and gimme my op poke-steroid," Gray shouted back to the lines.

"I'm coming! The bracelet had to be fitted properly. You need this second stone to be able to connect with your partner," Zombie responded before approaching Gray and giving him both mega stones.

Gray put the bracelet on his wrist and went to give the Blastoisinite to his starter, but it suddenly got hit by a psychic blast, knocking it back into a wall, with rubble collapsing around it.

"Blastoise, No!" Gray screamed before running to his partner, "Oh, no no. Hang in there buddy."

Despite the rough hit, Blastoise was able to open his eyes. He saw the worry but determination in his trainer and managed to struggle to his feet, "Stoise!"

"Yes buddy, you're awesome! Let's kick some creepy, psychic cat butt!"

The mega stones shone in unison and Blastoise began to Mega Evolve, taking on a newer, more powerful form. With the giant canon protruding from its back, Blastoise let off a powerful Hydro Canon that shot far into the air. It just missed Mewtwo but exploded right next to it; the blast flinging it back through the air. Nothing else so far had come close to injuring the legendary but once Mewtwo recovered, it turned its gaze towards Blastoise, fury in its eyes. Everyone looked up in terror as Mewtwo began to advance towards them.

"Charizard use Fire Blast!" Ta called as he intercepted Mewtwo's decent. The attack caught Mewtwo off guard and singed the legendary, but it responded with Psychic, grabbing Charizard and flinging it off course across the city. Mewtwo began to advance again, sending an Aura Sphere at its target. Blastoise used Hydro Pump to counter the move. The two attacks met each other mid-air but the Aura Sphere managed to continue its advance through the water and hit Blastoise with a resisted shot. Regardless, it was enough to bring Blastoise to the ground, defenceless. The other Pokemon attempted to use their moves to hit Mewtwo but it dodged and used a Psychic to sweep them all away. Mewtwo then began to charge another Aura Sphere before launching it towards Blastoise. In a unique instance of selflessness, Gray jumped in front of Blastoise, his arms out to take the attack. For all his perceived greatness, he knew he owed it at least somewhat to his Pokemon companions. Yob and Tene ran to try and move Gray but ended up in the line of fire themselves. Just as the attack was about to hit, it was intercepted from the south and exploded before impact. The Trio turned to see an ancient looking, flying Pokemon make landfall next to Professor 1cec0ld. To his right stood Griffin and the other fossil scientists, along with fossil maniac Parmamen and his Omastar. To his left were Prof. Assistant Prodigy and Gray's mother Miosio, with her Mr. Mime.

"It is the second coming! The 1cec0ld!!" Yob yelped, while taking a lick from his unconscious Parasect.

"Nice shot Aerodactyl," 1ce called to his Pokemon, "Now let's save the region."

Alongside the group, many other trainers joined them at the south of the city. The call had gone out and Kanto had responded. Trainers from all corners of the region had arrived. Llamawin with her Jolteon, Gal and Mega with their Hitmons, ImStillDead with his Tangela, Coltranepop with his Charmeleon, Equinox with his Snorlax, Dj with his Hitmonlee, LED with his Klink and Ishmaliel with his Chansey, along with all the Nrs_joys and Teh_royal_slimes and anyone else forgotten in this super long story. A loud series of engines could be heard as a Biker Gang rode up beside the group. LuckyLucario rode behind his new leader; the lost 5-year-old daughter of ImStillDead, Erika. They rang their horns with triumph.
At the head of the army stood the rest of the Gym Leaders; Tcanton, Pricey, Supernoise, Jeffro and Victini, all with their aces out. By their sides, in the lead, approached former Champion Stng, with his Beedrill, and both Paradox and Glados, the once friends of Windows. All of a sudden, a Meowth balloon made landfall near the Trio.

"We may be crime goons but sometimes you gotta do right by everyone," Pythonier exclaimed.

Sweaty added, "Let's see; a brief interval to do some good? I concur, let's fight!"

"Meowth, that's right!"

Triumph filled the lines of trainers as their spirits were renewed. Zombie sent out his Dusknoir, while Ta and Synder recovered to fight again. The Trio and Tactic also recovered, and determination filled their hearts. Altogether, everyone, all commanded their Pokemon to fire their attacks at Mewtwo. The legendary attempted to block the collective onslaught with its psychic powers but it was overwhelmed and came crashing down to the surface from the attack.
Everything was quiet. Dust filled the air as Tactic glided forward on his Charizard to inspect the crater where Mewtwo had landed.

"I can't see anyth..."

He was cut off as a psychic blast shot him and his partner up into the air. Mewtwo blasted out of the crater, an aura of dark, psychic energy surrounded it. Filled with pure fury, it let loose on the city once more. The trainers tried to fight but their Pokemon started getting taken out with more powerful psychic attacks than before. Zombie had a look of distraught acceptance on his face, before summoning a Honchcrow and flying away from the battlefield. B_Rad looked on with shame, as he continued to fight alongside his Golem, willing to go to the end to protect his home.
Supernoise ordered his Vileplume to send a flurry of Razor Leaves into the air, which Jeffro's Alakazam took control of with Psychic and flung towards Mewtwo. At the same time, Tcanton's Onix launched a Rock Throw, which Pricey's Raichu shattered into smaller pieces with Thundershock and Victini's Arcanine set ablaze to launch a flurry of scorching pellets into the sky, but Mewtwo managed to dodge both deadly attacks.

"It's too fast. We need to go up there and engage it," Ta instructed to Tactic who had recovered back beside him and the Trio.

"I'll race you to it!"

Together, both Ta and Tactic soured up on their Charizard. They flew around the legendary, dodging its psychic attacks, while sending off Flamethrowers in unison. Gray supported them from the ground, commanding his Mega Blastoise to launch Hydro Canons into the air around Mewtwo. The blasts knocked the legendary off balance, allowing the others to catch it with a combined Flamethrower attack.  Mewtwo recovered and kept up the fight, all the while dodging attacks from the ground.

"It's not enough," Tene mused to herself, "Heh, I thought I could come here and start completely from scratch. Nothing from my former life to help me. I guess sometimes you do need a little help."

She turned to Gray, who was commanding his Blastoise alongside Yob and his Venasaur, "Gray! You wanted to know what my sixth Pokemon was. Well, when I left Unova I was excited to do it; to start anew. But just in-case things got too bad, in those moments like at the Power Plant ...and I really think this qualifies...  I brought one of my old teammates with me."

Tene stepped forward, ahead of her wide-eyed companions, and released the 6th pokeball from her belt. The ball glowed with white light and released the Pokemon within. As the light cleared, the large body towered over the Trio. It was unlike any Pokemon Gray or Yob had ever seen, with broad shoulders and the body structure of an automaton.

"Golurk!" Tene called, "I'm going to have to ask you to save us again."

The giant let off an uncanny, mechanical screech, as Tene climbed onto its back.

"That's cool and all Tene but I hope it can turn into a canon or something because they're getting smashed up there," Gray called out.

"Better."

All of a sudden, Golurk placed its weight on its hands and retracted its legs. With a blast of red, fire erupted from its waists, where its legs once were, and the automaton shot into the air. Gray and Yob stood in shock.

"And I let her ride my Blastoise everywhere..."

Tene and Golurk flew up to Ta and Tactic, who were still battling Mewtwo.

"You're full of surprises," Tactic mused.

"I don't know what that is, but we can use all the help we can get," Ta added.

"Right."

The three all flew around, engaging Mewtwo with attacks, while Blastoise continued its artillery fire from below. As Mewtwo blocked Flamethrowers with each of its hands, Golurk launched a super-effective shadow ball into Mewtwo's chest, propelling it back. Just as it reoriented itself, it was hit with a Dark Pulse from Blastoise below, almost knocking it out of the air. But Mewtwo recovered yet again, panting with exhaustion. After blocking another barrage from the trainers below, it used Psychic to grab Ta's Charizard and flung it into Tactic's. The two went flying off below. Golurk soured forward and launched a Shadow Punch into Mewtwo's face, catapulting it back. Yet before Tene could follow up, Mewtwo recovered and administered a Psybeam right back at the flying automaton, blasting it back and causing Tene to fall off. As she fell, she was caught by Team Rocket in their balloon, who returned her to her mount.
Tene watched on with distraught as Mewtwo, while exhausted, continued to deflect attacks from the ground, decimating the Pokemon of the once triumphant army. The dream of peace began to seem more and more just that, a distant and foolish dream.

"Howdy!" a call could be heard from below; Zombie had returned and beside him floated a small, pink Pokemon. Mewtwo immediately stopped its onslaught as the pink Pokemon flew up to it.

"What was that?" Yob questioned Zombie.

"When I saw we had no hope of overpowering it, I flew to the Faraway Island, where we first found its predecessor ...Mew, alive after all these millennia. I thought this a hopeless endeavour, especially after the cruel samples we had done to it before ...but, but it approached me as friendly as ever ...as if greeting an old friend. It agreed to come help, despite everything humanity had done to it."

Mew and Mewtwo flew side-by-side, diametric counterparts. Mewtwo looked on with contemplative curiosity, as if remembering itself for the first time. The aura surrounding it quelled and it reached out its arm. Mew looked on with friendly openness. However, as all seemed cordial, Mewtwo retracted its arm and anger started to fill its eyes again. Mew was shocked as Mewtwo's rage returned. It went to strike Mew but before it could do anything it was blasted out of the sky by a Hydro Canon, sending it crashing down into the earth.

"Boom! Didn't see that coming ya pink murder cat!" Gray yelled with triumph.

Trainers quickly ran to the crater, not wanting to have a repeat of last time. Tene arrived first and as Mewtwo began to recover she was about to order her Golurk to attack, however, Mew floated down from above and stayed the hand of Golurk. It let off a cute chuckle before using Hypnosis on Mewtwo. The already exhausted Pokemon struggled to stay awake before collapsing back down, in a deep slumber.

***

Peace had been achieved. All the tired trainers congratulated their brave partners while the Nrs_joys sought to healing them. Mewtwo was returned to Cerulean Cave, with the entrance sealed off to prevent such a disaster from ever happening again. Windows was seen fleeing to the South but was not caught, nor were much of the Team Rocket leadership who fled in the confusion. Sweaty, Pythonier and Meowth were allowed a head start by Synder for their help in the battle.
Slowly, everyone began to pitch in to help clean up the city and this time, the Trio stuck around to offer their assistance, all the while reuniting with everyone. Gray tried to chat with his mother, but she just kept making references to how great Prof. 1ce's experiments had been with not-so-subtle inuendoes, Yob compared his vegan poffin-cooking progress with Supernoise and Tene spoke privately with Stng, who was finally able to recognise her.
The rebuild of the city would be long but together they would do it. Soon they would be able to continue their journey, with Kanto saved to sustain the next generation of trainers to do the same.
