Jon, Mary, Drake, April, Rotom-Dex and Typhlosion walk into a a small graveyard called Memorial Hill. They see a little girl, about 10 years old, and her granddad. The girl runs over to our heroes.

Girl: Please, help!

Jon: What's up?

The Granddad walks over.

Granddad: Hello there.

Drake: Hey. What do you need help with?

Girl: I have lost my Spell Tag!

Granddad: You don't need to worry about that.

Girl: I do. Nana gave it to me when I was younger before she died!

April: A Spell Tag?

Jon: It's an item which boosts Ghost type moves when held.

Mary: Ghost type moves?

Jon: Yeah.

Granddad: You don't need to worry child.

Girl: But Granddad.

The Granddad sniggers.

Jon: Why are you sniggering?

Typhlosion then aims Dragon Pulse behind the Granddad. A Dusknoir appears where Dragon Pulse hit.

Drake: Who is that?!

Rotom-Dex scans Dusknoir.

Rotom-Dex: Dusknoir, the Gripper Pokemon. Dusknoir is a pure Ghost type. The antennae on its head captures radio waves from the world of spirits that command it to take people there.

Girl: Scary.

Granddad: You know where you can get another one child. You just have to grab my hand.

The Granddad holds out his hand. The girl is about to grab his hand till Jon pulls her back.

Girl: What are you doing?!

Jon: Dusknoir has your Granddad under some mind control.

Just then a purple squid like Pokemon appears next to Dusknoir.

Jon: Who is that one?

Rotom-Dex scans the unknown Pokemon.

Rotom-Dex: Malamar, the Overturning Pokemon. Malamar is a Dark and Psychic type. It lures prey close with its hypnotic motions, then wraps its tentacles around it before finishing it off with its digestive fluids.

Drake: And I thought Dusknoir sounded scary.

Mary: Is Malamar controlling her Granddad?

Malamar: Mar, Malamar.

Jon: We will let you take the girl?

Girl: Malamar wants me?

Granddad: They want to help you see you Nana again. By going through the spirit world.

Mary: Isn't that bad?

Drake: Rotom said that Dusknoir takes people to the spirit world.

Rotom-Dex: Correct. Maybe Malamar and Dusknoir are a team.

Malamar: Mar.

Jon: That's a yes.

Girl: I don't want to go to the spirit world.

Granddad: You have to girl! Your Nana is very upset and very alone.

Jon: What do you two really want?

Dusknoir: Noir.

Malamar: Mar, Mar, Mala.

Jon: You've teamed up to make Dusknoir more powerful?

Drake: How?

Rotom-Dex: The more people and Pokemon taken to the spirit world by Dusknoir, the more powerful Dusknoir becomes.

Mary: That's bad.

Jon: You two need to stop. People and Pokemon go to the spirit world when their time has passed, you can't decide when that is.

Dusknoir then uses Shadow Ball towards Jon, but Typhlosion jumps in the way and knocks the move away into the air, where it disappears and the sky suddenly turns dark and it is night.

April: How is it dark?

Mary: I'm not getting it.

Granddad: The spirit world is getting angry, it will consume this world if you don't come along with me.

Girl: The whole world?

Mary: Wait, with you?

Jon: Malamar is talking through her Granddad.

April: That is so freaky.

Jon: Let her Granddad go.

Granddad: I am free. I only want what is best for us.

Drake: Us? As in you and Dusknoir?

Granddad: Me and my Granddaughter.

Mary: If you were here Granddad, then you'd want her to live.

Jon: Hmm.

Drake: What are you thinking?

Mary: Anything the matter?

Jon: This place.

Granddad: It is a place for the dead. You don't feel scared do you.

Jon: I have a theory.

Jon grabs for a Pokeball, enlarges it and then tries to send out a Pokemon, but it fails. Jon put the Pokeball back on his belt.

Jon: Thought so.

Drake: Your Pokeballs don't work.

Jon: Try yours then.

Drake tries to send a Pokemon out but nothing happens.

April: The Pokeball isn't opening.

Girl: I'm not following.

Jon: Rotom, have you got a picture of Memorial Hill in your data banks?

Rotom-Dex: Yes, of course!

Rotom-Dex then puts a picture on its screen.

Jon: Have a look.

Mary, April and Drake have a look.

April: What're you making us look at?

Jon: You can't see it?

The girl looks at the picture.

Girl: It's different.

Dusknoir, Malamar and the Granddad look a bit worried.

Mary: Still not following.

Jon: The easiest way to make someone do something. In a dream.

Granddad: So you figured it out.

April: What are you planning?

Granddad: While you are all trapped here, we are getting ready to frighten the people of Memorial Hill and then take them to the spirit world.

Granddad, Dusknoir and Malamar then disappear.

Girl: Where did they go?

Jon: They were never here.

Mary: They are in the real world aren't they!

Drake: While we are trapped here.

Jon: I wouldn't say trapped.

April: Why?

Girl: Because the door over there isn't part of Memorial Hill!

The Girl points at the door and runs over to it, trying to open it but it doesn't have a handle.

Jon: Flamethrower!

Typhlosion uses Flamethrower and hits the door. Suddenly everything gets covered in a bright, white light. In the real Memorial Hill, Officer Jenny, Granddad and Nurse Joy are around the Girl, Jon, Mary, Drake, April and Typhlosion. Dusknoir and Malamar appear and start to use Shadow Ball around Memorial Hill, starting to destroy stones and trees. Some Phantump attack using Shadow Ball too, cancelling out the attacks from Malamar and Dusknoir.

Malamar: Mar!

Dusknoir: Noir! Dusknoir!

Phantump: Phant!

Jenny: Stop this you two!

Officer Jenny then sends out Gumshoos.

Jenny: Hidden Power!

Gumshoos uses Hidden Power, but both Dusknoir and Malamar dodge. Dusknoir then creates a portal on a tombstone. Dusknoir and Malamar begin to laugh. Suddenly, Focus Blast hits the portal and the portal closes.

Jenny: Huh?

Jenny, Gumshoos, the Phantump, Malamar and Dusknoir look to the left and see Jon and Typhlosion awake. Mary, Drake, April and the Girl are awake too.

Granddad: You're awake!

Girl: Is it really you Granddad?

Drake: There's a way to find out.

Drake reaches for his Pokeball and sends out Stufful.

April: Yep, we are no longer in the dream!

Dusknoir: Noir.

Malamar: Mar, Malamar Mala.

Jon: Even in dreams and nightmares, there's still an exit you know!

Drake: Aerial Ace!

Stufful hits Dusknoir with Aerial Ace.

Jon: Now, Dragon Pulse!

Typhlosion uses Dragon Pulse and hits Malamar, causing a lot of damage. Dusknoir uses Shadow Ball on the floor to create a dust cloud. When the dust cloud disappears, Dusknoir and Malamar are nowhere to be seen.

Jenny: Gone.

Joy: I'll need to look over you all as you seemed to be in a deep dream state.

Drake: I'm just glad it is all over.

Everyone laughs in agreement, while the girl is holding onto the Spell Tag. The screen freezes.

Narrator: Upon arrival at Memorial Hill, our heroes met a girl and her Granddad. However, her Granddad was controlled by Malamar and Dusknoir and they were in a dream world. However, our heroes got out and sent Malamar and Dusknoir packing. Now, they are being checked over by Nurse Joy to make sure they aren't hurt then our heroes will continue their journey.
