Trainertale does not take place Underground. Ebott is a vast region of its own that exists on the surface, along with other pre-existing regions like Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, Unova, Kalos, and Alola. The difference here is that most monsters happen to reside in the Ebott region, but not because they were forced to. It’s simply where most monsters come from, as monsters and humans alike can enter and leave the Ebott region as they please. Thus, there was never a war between the two races, and Trainertale basically plays out like your typical Pokémon game.
Each character has their own Pokémon and favored types listed, relating to their role in the original game. Some battle information is also given for each Elite Four member. Also, the final elite four member is yet to be decided.
All art on this page, unless otherwise specified, is created by friisans.
