This is a story from long, long ago, in a time when there was still some distance between humans and Pokémon. While on a boat headed toward the Hisui Region, Akio is able to recall the first time his father brought him along to the region.
"Humans and Pokémon cannot live together." These are the words his father said to him when he was a little kid. It was at that time, in a forest covered in snow, that Akio met a single Hisui Form Zorroa.
It would be better if humans and Pokémon could live together, wouldn't it?
