Recorder of Tales
This is a story originally posted over at Bulbagarden and Fanfiction, and I'm wanting this to become more accessible to the main fanbase. This will not be the PMD universe that you are familiar with; it is one of my own invention, and I hope you will enjoy it.
Lawrence Stephenson is sent to a region populated solely by Pokemon to capture one for a new project. Only things go wrong! He mysteriously changes to a Lucario, and has no way back! Now he must travel with a mysterious Gardevoir and her guardian Golurk to bring light to a region under the grip of an insane Zoroark and his Dusknoir lieutenant-all while trying to return home.
Let's get to what you need to know:
- This is set in a universe of my own invention. The PMD games will in no way be referenced, while events from the core Pokemon series may be.
- This is rated Teen for drama and intense action. Language and description will be kept at an Everyone level, as well as any thematic elements.
- Any character sketches created over the course of the story will now be posted below. Spoilers for those who have not read past Chapter 9!
- This story is considered complete, so any comments about changing the plot or characters will not be considered. Odd phrasing or spelling will be changed upon review, however.
- If you have questions involving the world of Equivos, feel free to go to the thread The Region of Equivos--A PMD Universe.

As of October 9, 2018, all chapters have been revised significantly. Changes include:
- Narration of characters' thoughts have been changed to internal dialogue.
- The entire antagonist side of the plotline has been rewritten to better fit characters, but still follows the same general plot of the story.
- Arthus now has a literal split personality throughout his arc.
- Gardner now has a significantly reduced role through the story.
- Zacheus Torracat and Carlin Duskull are no longer present.
- Arthus and Matheus' backstory has been adjusted to better prepare for the prequel stories, PMD: Twilit Destinies and PMD: Legends Awakened.
- Cassia now obtains her mask from Arianne as a gift rather than from Matheus.
These changes are final.
