In a lonely town in Johto, the was a tiny child named Luna. Actually, the town wasn’t actually lonely, but it felt that way because Luna was terrified of all children her age and never talked to anyone but her parents. Due to this, she was homeschooled and barely had any social interaction. However, she was quite hyper and would occasionally (more than 85.7383% of the time) scream loud noises to the great outdoors (the town/city thing that the name of doesn’t matter) and bother a few (more than 85.7383%) of her neighbors. So, the neighbors decided to give them a check of 857383 Pokedollars and asked them to leave.
I’m kidding, I made up the second part. But Luna was, in fact, quite hyper, but for a different reason. Yes, this tiny, eight-year-old child was special. She was….
A MAGICAL GIRL!
Yes, she was chosen by the international bureaucracy for magica to become one of the magical children that protected the world from all sorts of bad things, such as stalkers, thieves, kidnappers, and slightly more perverted versions of those. Oh, and the occasional monster.
Now, magical girl mechanics aren’t what you think they are. Magical girls in the Pokémon world transform using a Keystone. The Keystone does its Infinity magic thingamajig and transform them into cute, adorable beings of loaf and peace.
Except for Luna.
Luna was incredibly violent for her age, and her normal appearance AND her magical transform appearance reflected that. Her eyes were red, her skin was incredibly pale, and her hair was reddish brown. She basically looked like a genderbend of your typical shoujo vampire male self-insert character but genderbent.
So, yeah, she looked like a boy.
This caused many problems at school, when she used to go, where all the immature second-year students absolutely LOAFED her, and all wanted to marry her when she grew up. This was fine for Luna, because she was gay (well, lesbian, but the lesbian flag is dumb and sexist and it sounds like bean), but she replied with “Okay! I’m a girl too!”, causing a variety of homophobic students to abhor and attack her, causing her fear for children her age.
But that’s just her backstory WITHOUT the magical girl part.
So, shortly after that, the international bureaucracy for magica (a bunch of Pokémon guardians, mostly mythical ones (because cats don’t exist in the Pokémon universe) and a few former magical kids who are now adults, and adults that had potential to transform using a keystone but only got their keystone when they became adults. Oh, and a few teenagers that decided they were too edgy to become magical transform beings of loaf and peace anymore.
So shortly after she started homeschooling, the current president of the bureaucracy, Latias, came to Luna one day when she was out collecting plants. Yes, she collects plants. So, anyways, Latias came and was all like “HEY! You’re cool! You should become a magical girl!”, but more eloquently. So, let’s try again. “Hello, my name is Latias. I am a legendary Pokémon, and the current president of the International Bureaucracy for magica. I have chosen you to become a magical girl because you are definitely the violent type aaaand all the other girls we’ve chosen are sort of pacifists.”
Now, Luna, as she watched enough magical girl anime to realize that being a magical girl is just getting into heaps of trouble with your teachers and having to keep tons of secrets from your friends. And her parents were her teachers and she had no friends. She also knew that being a magical girl involved getting a Pokémon partner, and as her parents, Norman and Brenda, didn’t want her to have a Pokémon until she turned 10, because parents. So, she accepted, after a long dialogue that nobody cares about.
Except something was wrong.
ALL HER TEAMMATES WERE TALL AND BIG AND HUMONGOUS!
Because really, even for someone who watched magical girl anime, she was quite oblivious to the fact that all magica are at LEAST in middle school. Or 5th grade. So, she started to feel alienated for 8.57383 seconds. Then the other three girls, (Who again, nobody cares about, but I’ll tell you their names anyways) Haniz, Yuka, and Marina, the magical girls of fire, air, and water, plus Luna, the magical girl of earth, decided to fight the creepy people of the world. Oh, and none of them got a partner Pokémon because SPOILERS and they weren’t nearly at the apex of their powers.
In transformation form, Luna’s hair color became more red than usual, and grew into three ponytails, and each grew as sharp as swords. Her dress was green and black, and appeared to have blood on it. And dirt. But that may because she brutally attacked all her victims before handing them off to her teammates. It was a very effective strategy.
But all good things must come to an end, and Luna’s father, Norman, passed a gym leader test and got assigned to the Petalburg gym in the Hoenn region, 8573.83 miles away. So, they moved.
But since Hoenn was on a separate island than Johto, they took a plane, causing Luna to hyperventilate because she had altitude sickness and an extreme fear of heights.
And as she was still hyperventilating, she decided to grab her Marill doll, and hug it and sit in the back of a moving trailer. Actually, she had to, because the front of the moving thingamabob only had two seats. And she fell asleep until she got the call that would change her life forever.
