-> ''” ...I killed and controlled life by my own agency. I bring nothing but destruction. Were I to have a mate, even a child, neither of them would last very long by my hands. I am a cursed being doomed to desire but not receive. What I did to Mew was as such. My desire was not returned, at least not in the way I hoped it would. That, my friend, is my human side…”''

The story begins three centuries in the future with bad news: [[CrapsackWorld the Pokémon world is on the brink of a world war.]] Ho-oh calls for a conference for the Legendaries on this issue, giving first-hand accounts about the world falling apart. For fear of becoming as the common man, he instructs everyone to get over rivalries and make friendships with one another.

Skip ahead two months to when the rumored war comes to pass, and the future looks grim. That is until the [[ApocalypseHow world is suddenly destroyed,]] leaving the Legendaries (all thirty-three of them) alive and devastated.

But that is when [[ItHasOnlyJustBegun the story really begins.]]

''Forsaken'' is a Franchise/{{Pokemon}} FanFic written by {{Tropers/lilpurplebird}}, revolving around the [[SliceOfLife lives of the Legendaries]] as they attempt to recover and fix up the world. They go through their own personal trials of life, and then are put to the test by an outside force that has chosen the dead world for its own evil purposes, doing so through Mew and Mewtwo.

Have we mentioned this is a [[{{Shipping}} romance story]]?

The story is currently on-going, and can be read [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5842142/1/Forsaken here]].
