It all started when I had the urge to play my old Pokémon White. Sadly, I could not find that wonderful game even though I could have sworn I had it somewhere in a drawer.
After being a bit disappointed I decided to go to Gamestop and simply buy a new one. The next day I went to the old game store and ended up buying a used Pokémon White game. And while I was there, I ended up buying an Action Replay, since, my last one had been broken for quite a while now.
Once I reached the couch at my home I inserted the Pokémon game into my DS and began to play. The intro was completely normal and nothing “out of the ordinary” was going on.
After the intro ended I got hit with an idea that intrigued me. I then reset and grabbed my Action Replay and inserted the Pokémon game into it. After the Action Replay did its intro of showing all the available games you could hack and screw up, the Action Replay directed me to the Pokémon White codes. I quickly scanned though the ones that were fairly “decent” for now until I felt like adding more via internet. I then saw they added a Pokémon modifier with a list of all pokemon which, if chosen, would appear in the wild by pressing SELECT.
I went to the new Legendary Pokémon and thought of which one I should chose to accompany my starter that I chose. For some strange reason the pokemon “Meloetta” caught my eye and I remembered reading about it somewhere on the internet. I chose it and began the Pokémon game. When it started, once again, the normal intro started with the normal stuff. I pressed A and the game skipped to the usual selection: Continue or New Game.
The other options did not appear for some reason, but I did not care since I would simply start a new game anyway. I usually click “Continue” to see what the person before me had accomplished but I was in a hurry to play the game. I did the sequence of button pressing to delete the previous file and than clicked the “New Game” option.
The game started up and did the intro of the journey (Where the Professor does the normal explanation of Pokémon and ask the simple questions) After that was done my current info that I had put for the questions was:
Name: Silver (as I name all of the protagonists of the Pokémon games)
After a couple hours of playing I had, caught the Meloetta I had wanted, and got around the 2nd gym. After completing the Pinwheel Forest event I found out that Meloetta could learn a special move called “Relic Song”. This made me more into the game itself. I also found out that you must go to a certain place that I can't really remember...
After you must talk to some music player and Meloetta would come out and instantly learn this move. I did this many times, but sadly each time I tried nothing happened. I knew there was only two reasons why this didn't work.
1) It has to be some sort of event Meloetta.
or 2) I must beat the entire game for this to happen.
So I assumed I had to beat the game. After a whole day of playing the game I had successfully gotten to the last gym, and of course, needed the last badge before I could continue to the elite four and the final battle with N. Once I was in Opelucid City, I was directed (by this my character had moved on it's own) to a lady who looked like she was playing on a flute. My character had than began to talk to her. The lady simply played music that sounded off-tune and unpleasant. My Meloetta released itself from it's pokeball and began to dance to the strange tune. After the disturbing song, the message “Meloetta has learned Relic Song!” came onto the screen. It did not give me the option of erasing one of Meloetta's moves.
I didn't really care because my Meloetta had finally learned the move... I now know that was a mistake.
Then I got into a battle with the young lady that had, apparently taught my Meloetta the move. She placed her Sigilyph into battle, as I did my Meloetta. I wasn't able to choose the move that I had wanted. But instead the move Relic Song was picked. My Meloetta had went first and had used the move. The screen went pitch black and I could hear the cry of the Sigilyph at a very high pitch. The screen went back to normal and the Sigilyph had dropped down, looking somewhat...different and had made it's final cry before dropping down like a Pokémon that had fainted did. Nothing had showed up saying that the Pokémon had fainted but instead just ended the battle.
When I returned to the overworld the lady who was there was no where to be seen now. I began to think about the move, whether “that” was suppose to happen. I used the move on countless trainers near the city and it seemed each time I did use the move, it would always end up hitting and instantly knocking out the opponent's pokemon, and the trainers were gone. I also ended up battling Iris but each time I beat her she never gave me the badge and always said after her loss “You are not worthy for this badge.”
This made quite angry and I shut the game off. After a couple weeks I picked it back up and began to play it. I forgot which city I had been in by than and when I went to the overworld I was in a forest of some kind.
I could not check my map and I couldn't use any items or pokemon that had the move Fly. The only thing that I could do was check my trainer profile. I hesitated for a while but worked up the courage and clicked A. The trainer was surely different... His face was quite pale and his eyes where blank. Other than that he was normal.
I exited out of the profile and tried to get out of the forest. Sadly each time I entered a, what was suppose to be a new level or part of the forest, I would just return to the same place I was last. After doing this for over 30 minutes I got annoyed. I tried entering one more time.
When I did, it seemed that I got lucky and a new level was actually revealed. I continued on until I got to the end. It looked like when you reach the final team plasma grunt at the Pinwheel forest event. I walked to the middle, where, what looked like a Meloetta was standing in the spot. My character began to move by itself again and ended up talking to the Meloetta The Pokémon looked at my character and began a song. The tune was near the same as the one played by the lady at Opelucid, except had more of a higher pitch and Lavender Town theme to it.
A battle then commenced and Meloetta was on the other side and I sent out my starter pokemon, which was now a Samurott. The level difference was quite big. My pokemon's level was simply a level 72 while Meloetta was level 99. I checked my team which was sadly only my faithful Samurott and no Meloetta or any other of my pokemon that were once my team.
The battle continued and, of course, Meloetta went first. Except she didn't use the Relic Song attack, which was a surprise to me. But instead used Curse. Since Meloetta was a Non-Ghost type it only raised it's stats. My Samurott than used it's Hydro Pump, which, did absolutely nothing. The Meloetta then used the Curse once again. While I used another Hydro Pump.
After this the Meloetta finally used it's Relic Song which made my hairs on the back of my spine rise. The screen went black and stayed that way. Once I reset the game it still had the “Continue” option but each time I tried doing something different... It always happened the exact same, my character never getting passed the final gym. I don't really understand this but I've come to think that the person who obviously hacked this game to a strange end, possibly tried to make the player...think.
Think about life, that everything doesn't always go as planned, that you don't always get what you want. Perhaps this is very life itself...
