The story begins with [[http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=28008 The Dawn of Hope, followed by The Second Promise]]. The third book, [[http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=66601 The Cry of Egatept]], was also co-written by RocketMeowth. The last entry in the series is [[http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=101893 Whispers of the Forgotten Angels]]. Each of the stories are split into 3 parts.

The plot starts with a young trainer named Randy Ferguson, who is constantly bullied by Jake Kossak and his friends. Things soon change as Randy gets friends of his own, and given a mysterious necklace of incredible power...

The initial parts of the story take on a fair share of [[{{EarlyInstallmentWeirdness}} focus shifts and setting changes]] (The only planned part of the entire series was the first part of the first book), although it settles on a more deliberate pace later on in the sequels. Throughout all of them, a Pikachu named Juno serves as the centerpiece of the story.

* BalefulPolymorph: Jake, Alex and David all undergo embarrassingly girly transformations during their time in Randy's world.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: In the last chapter of Whispers of the Forgotten Angels, [[spoiler:Juno tells the reader how he's written the book to share the trials and difficulties he's gone through thanks to his determination and refusal to give up hope]].
* ChekhovsGunman: [[spoiler:Morpheus]], who comes back from almost a whole book earlier to help Juno.
* CosmicRetCon: The end of Cries of Egatept has Juno [[spoiler:erase the existence of Jake Kossak, himself, Blazewing, the Abyss, and multiple wars on multiple worlds in various parts of the fic's past]].
* CrapsackWorld: Egatept is a world so far beyond saving that Arceus originally intended to destroy it.
* DarkerAndEdgier: The fic deals often with war, with modern-day weapons at that. Genocide and creative evil are also dealt with.

* DeusExMachina: Arceus bails Juno out of trouble on several occasions.
* EleventhHourSuperpower: Juno's [[spoiler:summoning ability]] near the end of the first book.

* WindowsOfTheSoul: "Anyone can look at Juno and see that he is special just by the stars in his eyes."

* HolyHandGrenade: Undead Pokemon soldiers never stay downed until incinerated by the holy fire of a weapon blessed by angel's blood.

* OrWasItADream: The alternate world created by Randy was very real to begin with, but even after it was broken its effects would have long-standing consequences for the rest of the fic.
* RealityWarper: Randy in the first part of Dawn of Hope, and [[spoiler:Juno and Blazewing]] in the finale of both Cry of Egatept and Whispers of the Forgotten Angels.

* SerialEscalation: The final part of Whispers of the Forgotten Angels has Juno and his friends [[spoiler:defeating their Fallen, opening a portal to the world of dreams, blowing up the bottom-most depth of the Abyss, blowing up the rest of the Abyss, and finally unifying the universe to destroy the concept of Sin itself.]]
