One fateful morning in Pallet Town, a newborn hero takes his first steps along his journey to becoming a Pokemon Master. With a love for Pokemon battle, and a burning desire to be the very best, he takes on the region’s Gym Leaders, and eventually conquers the Pokemon League. A well-trodden tale if there ever was one… but it is far from the whole story.
Behind Red’s seemingly simplistic Pokemon adventures lies a darker, more sinister plot – one that its original hero never hears of, but which holds significance for both him and the fate of the Kanto region. Sociopathic scientists, revenge-hungry nurses and corrupt Gym Leaders are just a few of the characters who show their true colors once Red turns his back, and the very people who appeared most friendly and considerate through his naïve eyes may in fact be secretly harboring the most malicious of intentions.
What is the connection between Lance, Giovanni and Professor Oak? What exactly happened during the Great Pokemon War? How was the mysterious Mewtwo created? Not to mention: what is the fate of the hundreds of Trainers Red so ruthlessly defeat? The answers lie in the story behind the story, and it begins deep in Kanto’s criminal underworld…
