Here's the first chapter. I know. It's sooper long
Chapter One: The Breach
Sylace, the defender of the Amethyst that guarded his home, paced up and down the shiny marble floors. His long black cloak draped over his shoulders, flowing with his movements as he walked. High in the tower above him, the purple gem hovered in an immense violet glow, illuminating the city. He looked up at the great crystal anxiously, as if someone would come and steal it any minute.
"Relax, Sylace!" a voice came from behind, causing Sylace to start in shock. He whipped around and standing behind him was his friend and mentor Hiro. Hiro had been the previous defender before Sylace and had trained him in the techinques of combat, magic, and pokemon.
"Sorry, Hiro! I'm nervous!" Sylace sighed. He ran his hand through his black hair and glanced up at the Amethyst again.
"Don't be. I know you've just been elected as the guardian of the most important object in Kaita but you shouldn't worry yourself! It will cloud your thinking if there ever is a battle." the wise veteran advised.
Sylace forced himself to calm his nerves and relax. "Okay, I'll try," he said with a deep breath. Hiro nodded and with a pat to Sylace's shoulder, turned and walked out the door. "I sure hope nothing goes wrong," Sylace muttered to himself.
The mauve hide of the dragon zoomed through the air. The Amethysts call grew stronger with every mile he flew. His yellow eyes were narrowed as wind whipped in his face. Clouds whizzed past his long, powerful body as he sped towards his target.
Suddenly, he reared up and slowed to a halt, hovering in midair. Focusing his power, the violet colored dragon raised his tearing claws and a swirling vortex of light twisted and danced as he brought it to life. A black siloughette formed and began to take shape. With a roar, the dragon finished his creation and the shadowy form began to glow.
As the light faded, floating in the shadow's place was a six foot tall, lizard-like creature. It's rainbow colored scales glistened in the low sunlight that shone upon the cloud bed. The creature's body tensed, ready for combat. It raised its head and let out a loud shrieking roar.
The violet dragon smirked. "Go now. Retrieve my prize," he hissed softly. The lizard roared again and in a flash of light, disappeared. With a snort, the triumphant dragon decended below the thick layer of clouds and began to search for a place to regain the power he had used to make his deadly creation.
Sylace was lounging around in the temple below the tower which encased the powerful gem. His Blaziken, Firebrand, was settled in a peaceful sleep on a soft bed Sylace had made for it. The day seemed to have gone by without so much as a peep from the dangerous, dark outside world.
Outside, a shadow leaped across a turret and onto the wall of the tower. It looked at the pinnacle.
The Amethyst was glowing and flickering in a dazzling sparkling light at the top. The shadow nimbly climbed to the top and leaped to the stand where the crystal was kept.
The brilliant light revealed the scaly body of a lizard with a rainbow hide. The lizard hissed and reached with his powerful claws and grasped the gem. Suddenly, a flash of light was emitted fromt the Amethyst. The lizard roared and leaped off the top of the tower and landed heavily on the rooftop of the temple below. The Amethyst continued to flash as if calling for help from its people. And the breach did not go unnoticed.
Sylace was jerked from his doze as a crash shook the temple. Firebrand was immediatly in action, wrists flaming and ready to burn any enemy at Sylace
