The Enigma Shadow series by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1247195/The_Great_Butler The Great Butler]] is a trilogy of Franchise/{{Pokemon}} fanfics that was published from 2006 to 2011. Over the course of the trilogy, Pokemon trainer Rich Mistbloom, his wife Anabel and daughter Olivia do battle with the titular terrorist organization, Enigma Shadow, and the assortment of villains working for the group. In a continuation of details from ''VideoGame/PokemonColosseum'' and ''[[VideoGame/PokemonColosseum Pokemon XD]]'', Enigma Shadow plans to take control of the world using corrupted Shadow Pokemon. It has three parts, but the writer considers XD^3 the best of the three, and no real knowledge of the first two installments is necessary to enjoy the story, as past events are referenced as needed. XD^3 features a mix of science fiction, thriller, and action, with plenty of Pokemon battles mixed in. It can be read [[http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=185032 here]] or [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3468874/1/Pokemon_XD3_The_Waves_of_Truth here]].

The trilogy, XD^3 in particular, suffered from being a TroubledProduction through much of its existence. The author has admitted to having little planning in place and simply writing what came to mind at the time, leading to long gaps between chapters, at least one very long delay brought on by an unexpected canon event (the death of Pokemon Hunter J in episode 151 of ''Pokemon: Diamond and Pearl'') and the runaway length of XD^3. He has voiced his dissatisfaction with the trilogy in more recent times and admitted that it did not live up to its potential, without ruling out the possibility of a rewrite sometime in the future.

He has voiced his dissatisfaction with the trilogy in more recent times and admitted that it did not live up to its potential, without ruling out the possibility of a rewrite sometime in the future.



XD^3 also spawned a SpinOff, ''Pokemon Ranger and the Gardener of Gratitude'', which has a slightly different tone and setting- a TwoFistedTale in the spirit of ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' or ''Film/NationalTreasure'', centering on royal intrigue, powerful artifacts, and even more powerful Pokemon. It focuses on Matt Chiaki, a character from XD^3, and his adventures in La Ciudad Dorada as he searches for the lost Golden City using hints left by his grandfather, a legendary archaeologist, and does battle with a mysterious villain planning to destroy the kingdom using the Pokemon Heatran. It's shorter than XD^3 but retains the twists and turns of its parent story, and no knowledge of XD^3 is required to enjoy it, as it stands pretty well on its own, though the events and characters of XD3 are referenced in it (and likewise for Gardener in XD^3).

''Pokemon Ranger and the Gardener of Gratitude'' and ''Pokemon XD^3: The Waves of Truth'' later inspired a followup work, a new trilogy collectively titled ''Operation GEAR''. Starring Matt Chiaki and [[SheIsAllGrownUp an older Olivia]] in a world five years departed from the events of the Enigma Shadow trilogy, ''Operation GEAR'' began on June 21, 2011 with the publishing of the first part of the first story, ''The Firestorm Rebellion''.

*** The Go Rock Quads in-story are actually [[{{Expy}} based on the band]], right down to playing their songs in-story and having band members as their [[{{HeyItsThatVoice}} voice actors]]. Not surprising considering the author states in his profiles on LJ and Serebii Forums he's a fan.
