Greetings, old friends. It has, indeed, been quite some while since I last visited these forums; for those who may not remember me, and for those who are new to these hallowed grounds, I am a PokéBeach Staff Alumnus. I moderated this particular forum when it was known by another name in a by-gone era, and I would venture to say that I contributed to the renaissance of The Writing Café, which has since become known as The Ruins of Alph. From the perspective of an observer, it is evident that these forums have been left in good hands, and I commend those who curate The Ruins of Alph and uphold many of the standards we established three, nearly four, years ago! Upon unboxing my sapphire-hued Nintendo DS Lite in 2009 and inserting a cartridge entitled Pokémon Platinum Version, I immediately became immersed in a world which I had never before known. Infatuated with this strange land and its inhabitants, I was baffled by the intricacy and graveness of the story-line of the game. Years after, I continued playing the Pokémon games, but, after Black2, I became disenchanted with the franchise. I had worked for PokéBeach for nearly a year, but I was rapidly losing interest in the franchise. I saw it fit, after many difficulties in the real world, to resign not only from the forums but also from the Pokémon world. There was one task, however, which I left incomplete--that is, until now. Before leaving this franchise, I resolved to compose a fanfiction; many ideas had entered my mind, and I have, actually, composed a total of three fanfictions in my head which, unfortunately, never made it to paper. After toying around with many ideas, I finally settled on one, and the product is that which you will read below. I have resolved that my return will only be for the sake of seeing this fanfiction to completion, and that is all. I offer my humble gratitude to those who read this and embark upon a journey in a distant land, one which you may recall fondly: SINNOH. TABLE of CONTENTS Chapter I. "Broadcasts" Chapter II.
