Notes: Although this fanfic is based on Unova, Pokémon from Kanto, Johto, Hoenn and Sinnoh are in this fanfic.
Five years after the events of Pokémon Black and White the Unova region changed. Scientists started to import Pokémon from other regions including Kanto, Johto, Hoenn and Sinnoh, making Unova the region with the greatest variety of Pokémon. Now, another five years later, the Pokémon and people live in harmony in the Unova region and Unova flowers like never before.
While supervising a top-secret project somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean, Captain Steven Shay, invites his daughter Carly Shay, along with her friends Sam Puckett, Freddie Benson and Gibby Gibson to spend the summer on a secret location. Not knowing about the existence of the creatures called Pokémon the gang of four are on their way for the region called Unova.
But when approaching Unova per ship, the famous iCarly quartet gets caught in a terrible thunderstorm. With the gang terrorized by the power of nature and with their life hanging on a silken thread, the main target is to reach Unova alive…
Chapter 1: Drifted ashore
Dark clouds were gathering and the high waves played with the boat like it was a toy in a bath tub. Desperate, Freddie, Sam, Carly and Gibby helped the crew hosing water out of the ship, but with every bucket of water they threw out of the ship another wave came to make it all undone.
"Guys! Come inside!" the captain called.
"Yes Cap'n!" Gibby answered as he hurried towards the cabin, followed by Sam, Freddie and Carly in that order. Gibby and Sam quickly found shelter in the cabins, before another wave sent Freddie and Carly of balance. They both managed to keep on their feet, by standing still with their feet apart.
"Carly! Freddie! Hurry!" Sam yelled.
Carly and Freddie were a meter separated from each other and Freddie, who was the closest to the cabin, was about five meters separated from it. With heavy steps Freddie tried to fight against wind and rain and slowly approached the cabin.
"Carly! Stay close to me!" Freddie yelled back.
"Okay!" Carly called. Carly walked into the shadow of Freddie. Because of that, Freddie took most of the wind and rain. Sam looked up into the sky and gasped. Suddenly an enormous lightning bolt collapsed in the boat right between Freddie and Carly and the cabin. The impact sent Freddie flying into Carly who got caught into the hurricane. Freddie recovered quickly, stood up, grabbed Carly's wrist. Freddie felt his feet slip over the wet deck.
"Freddie! Let go!" Carly called. Freddie felt the wind pulling Carly into the sky.
"Never!" Freddie yelled. He swung his free hand so he grabbed Carly's elbow. "I won't let go!"
"Freddie!" he heard Sam yell.
"Sam! Shut the door!" Freddie yelled.
"No!" Sam yelled. She wanted to run outside, but the blonde teenager was held back by a strong arm.
"Don't risk it!" Gibby yelled.
"They're my friends!" Sam yelled.
"They're mind too! But there's nothing you can do!"
Sam looked at her friends struggling against the immense power pulling on them. Then she looked at the door. She closed it and for the first time in her life she felt powerless. The next moment she looked through the circular window in the door, her friends were gone.
She sat there watching to the two humans lying in the coarse sand. They were dirty and wet everywhere. She slowly approached the two brunettes to examine them. The one on her left was a brown haired girl and on her right was a darker brown haired boy both around the age of 17. She saw how the hands of the boy were tightly attached to the arm of the girl. She approached the boy and softly poked in his liver. There wasn't a response. The chinchilla Pokémon walked to the boy's face and but her ear close to his mouth. She heard and felt him breathing. Then she checked the girl and found out that she was also alive, but she had difficulties with breathing. The Pokémon walked over to the boy again and started jumping on his stomach until he spit out water from his lungs. The boy coughed and slowly opened his eyes.
"What…" was all the boy could mutter
"Min?" the Pokémon tilted her head a little.
"Where am I?"
"Chino!" the chinchilla cheered in jubilee.
"And who are you?" the boy asked as he looked at the furry creature standing over his head. It was a creature looking like a mouse with a relatively long, furry tail and very large ears. The rat was standing on two feet and was looking at Freddie with large eyes of curiosity. "Must be some kind of rat," he sat up and looked around, until he saw that Carly was attached to his arm. "Carly!" Freddie yelled as he prodded Carly on her side. "Wake up! Carly! Can you hear me? What happened?" he asked to himself.
"Chino! Min!" the animal commented. She rolled up her ears and pitched a very loud scream. Freddie instinctively reached for his ears.
"Wow, you're a loud one," Freddie commented. Then he looked at Carly. "It doesn't seem to work," he said. "Let me try," he tilted Carly's head backwards and checked if it was clean. "M-hm," he murmured. Freddie put his ear close to Carly's nose and mouth and checked her chest if it was heaving. It was not. He pinched Carly's nose, took a deep breath and placed his mouth on hers and breathed in it. He saw that Carly's chest was lifted a little. He let go of Carly's mouth and saw that her chest lowered again. Then he breathed into Carly again and repeated the same routine a couple of times before Carly coughed up an amount of water. Freddie supported Carly's back to make her sit up and patted her back to knock some water out of her. "Are you okay?" Freddie asked concerned.
"-cough - yeah, I'm – cough – okay," Carly said. "Thanks," she said as she approached Freddie and gave him a hug. "You saved me again," she said.
"You would've done the same," Freddie waved it away.
"If I knew first aid," Carly said. Freddie stood up and helped Carly up as well. "Looks like you have a friend," Carly said playfully when she noticed the chinchilla. Freddie looked up and saw that the chinchilla was standing behind him.
"Chino!" the creature spoke.
"Hmm…" Carly said as she ducked before the animal. "I wonder if you have a name,"
"Min, chin!" the Pokémon said. "Minccino!"
"Minccino?" Freddie said.
"Cino!" Minccino cheered.
"Okay, Minccino," Carly spoke. "Can you lead us to a more civilized place?"
"Cino! Min!" Minccino said as she started to run in front of Carly and Freddie. Carly and Freddie tried to follow it, which wasn't easy. Not only because of Minccino's speed, but also because of their wet clothes.
"Wait up, Minccino!" Carly yelled. Minccino, ignoring Carly's pleads to slow down, ran from the beach into a small, yet modern town. Carly and Freddie, wet as drown cats, let the town slips with their eyes. The town was mildly crowded.
"Where are we?" Freddie asked.
"Cin! Cin!" the Minccino said as the little thing started running again. Minccino hopped across the town dodging all the people with great agility. Carly and Freddie barely managed to catch up with the fast creature. Fortunately there wasn't that much traffic and Carly, Freddie and Minccino were able to maneuver themselves across the streets safely. Minccino stopped in front of a neat and shiny building in the middle of the town. "Cino! Cin!" it said and it hopped inside. Freddie and Carly decided to follow the little rat inside.
Carly and Freddie looked around to get a little idea about where they were. The place was spread with bookcases and there were computers everywhere.
'Must be heaven for Freddie,' Carly thought with a smirk.
"What is this place?" Freddie asked.
"Looks like some sort of lab," Carly said both to Freddie as to herself.
"It's huge," Freddie said in awe.
"Blitzle, Wild Charge!" the two heard from ahead.
"What's that?" Carly asked. Freddie and Carly advanced through the lab following the way Minccino disappeared in.
"Dustox! Poison Sting! Let's go!" they heard. Carly and Freddie followed the sound advancing through a couple of corridors before the two found the source of the sound. On their right there was a window separating from what looked like some kind of battle field. The ground was light brown and shiny and there were some lines drawn on the floor. Carly and Freddie saw two people one male and one female both in a lab coat and both commanding some kind of animal. The female had an impressive haircut as her hair raised at least twenty centimeters above her head. She was well into her thirties, maybe even forties and had bright brown hair. She was commanding some kind of zebra whose stripes which seemed to resemble lightning bolts. On the other side there was a man, also in a lab coat. He was shorter than the woman and had short, black hair. He wore large, round glasses and was commanding some sort of big moth. The moth had big, green wings with a weird pattern on it. It had a purple body which seemed to be an extension of its head and had two yellow, black dotted eyes and two small, yellow antennae. On the side of the battlefield was Carly and Freddie's new friend. She noticed the two and waved to them and made some sort of 'come hither' gesture. Carly and Freddie shrugged and entered the room by the door next to the window. The female combatant looked up and seemed to startle a little.
"Oh hey," she said. "Who are you?" she seemed very friendly.
"Oh, I'm Freddie," Freddie said. "And this is my friend, Carly. We kinda… washed ashore today. At least I think it was today. Then we found that thing there," he pointed at Minccino, "who brought us here,"
"You mean you got washed ashore here," the woman said.
"That's what he said, professor?" the man on the other side of the battlefield said, while he also approached us. Minccino followed suit.
"I'm so sorry. Truth is there was a shipwreck two days ago. Part of the crew is now saved and is healing in the Castelia City Hospital,"
"Part of the crew?" Carly asked. "Are Sam and Gibby okay?"
"I don't know. There were three survivors: two teenagers and one full grown man. The rest of them drowned,"
"Oh man," Freddie said in shock.
"You know what, I'm going to give you some clothes, hot choco and you are going to tell me about yourself, how does that sound?" Juniper said.
"Sounds great," Carly said with a polite smile.
"Cheren, could you prepare the chocolate, I'm getting some clothes for them,"
"Of course, professor,"
