Their prophecies detailed the impossible, something that couldn’t be done. Until now, that is. The ability to cross dimensions is a thing only a few Pokémon know: Mismagius, Shedinja, Shuppet, and others. The Ancients, having no need for this ability, did not use it, but they heeded the warnings of the Travelers, writing down the cryptic words as law. But now, their words lost and ignored, we have built machines capable of opening rifts in reality. We, foolish humans, kept them open, studied them, tried to understand them, but all we succeeded in doing was to destroy the world as we knew it.
Months passed as the portals went unnoticed by the Shadow, and we thought it was uninhabitable. Months passed as the Shadow’s portals went unnoticed by us, until they closed theirs, deeming our world inhospitable to life. We kept ours open, continued studying the rifts, wondering how we could use this new technology, this new world. Then the Shadow noticed our presence and rent the rifts open, blasting dark energy across our world. This has irrevocably changed our world, the wilderness is filled with warped Pokémon that devour anything that cannot protect itself, the cities are filled with people fleeing the disasters, and there are craters centered on the rifts which now connect our World to its Shadow.
Basically, the world has entered a new Dark Age. Will it recover? How? The flow of people into cities has nearly stopped, and Martial Law rules most, elsewhere it's survival of the fittest as rival gangs compete for dwindling resources. Dark-types roam the wilds outside of the cities and there are portals to the Shadow World. However, a few untouched regions exist.
