a new year brings new expectations. civil unrest starts to manifest in the form of online criticisms that spike after the three day war. now that the region no longer has to face the threat of megalopolans, the people of hoenn turn to address smaller and more personal issues. will the league rise up to the situation? what about questionable events that have transpired, overshadowed and overlooked in the face of more imminent issues?
after the ultra beast war, hoenn begins to heal. the megalopolan invasion may have failed; however, it is clear there is much more at stake. a prophecy revolving around a cyclical meteoroid, the appearance of necrozma and a dangerous and viral alien threaten the safety of the region once more.
with rocket's new boss, the resurgence and reappearance of the crime syndicate's presence is imminent. the league has done its best to repair its reputation, and with the victory of a war under their belt, perhaps it is enough. but the seeds of distrust have already been sown in the ravaged land of this region, causing many to wonder what will grow?
In the dead of night, Adrian and some colleagues finish putting together the culmination of his past months' experiences, dabbling for the first time in synthesized music. He collaborated with a few genre experts, borrowing studio equipment and professional talent to touch up his otherwise amateur approach to match the powerful lyrics he's prepared. But popularity is a difficult thing to achieve, and so with some reluctance he hits upload onto youtube and across other media sharing websites, downloading his creation onto the online web. And then he hangs his head.
He doesn't expect much to come of it, but inventing this song had helped him achieve some level of catharsis, which unburdens him greatly even as he leaves the studio to head home.
