Matthew couldn't remember much else from the past few months or so. It was all a blur.
He couldn't remember much, except for Dialga. Some memories did occur to him, but it was all blurred, and all fairly ridiculous too. He wouldn't be turned into a Chimchar, that's illogical. And while he always loved Fire-type Pokemon, it wouldn't make sense for him to turn into one.
What had happened? Had he gained some sort of amnesia? He wasn't sure what the cause was to this.
A Grovyle? Dusknoir? And this time, him as a Infernape, this time, but this time there was an Eevee by his side.
What? More Pokémon visions. It was confusing, to say the least, but he had to deal with it.
Matthew woke up in a patch of grass at Twinleaf Town. Which made no sense at all, because last he could recall, he was in his house, taking a nap.
He then had an idea - go to Spear Pillar. Maybe then he could have a chance to see Dialga! Maybe that could help him out with those visions the was having earlier! Maybe he could explain how he was outside laying in grass instead of indoors on a bed!
Matthew packed many things, including food and water, clothes, and of course, his Pokémon and their necessities - like Potions and Antidotes.
Then he set off on his lengthy journey towards Spear Pillar.
He went through many trials, fighting trainers and Wild Pokémon, and even catching some new ones as well.
After a long journey, he eventually reached his final destination: Spear Pillar.
Then he saw Dialga.
"Welcome back, Matthew" Dialga said, telepathically.
"Oh, hi... Wait, welcome BACK? What?"
"You don't recall?"
"Not at all. That's actually why I came. I've been having these weird dreams. Something about you, and me, but I was a Chimchar, and there was an Eevee with me, and... that's actually all I can remember..."
"Well, what happened was...
You were transformed into a Chimchar. Another Pokémon, an Eevee, was your friend. You had to fight me to be able to fix time and save the world, and I applaud your bravery with that. In fact, those dreams were sent by me. I was trying to get you to travel here, because I wanted to give you a special gift."
"A special gift? What type of gift?" Matthew asked.
"It's something that will be very useful once you receive it. You'll see..."
Dialga stomped his foot on the ground, and Matthew felt something.
He looked at his hand, and noticed he was growing... Fur? What kind of sense does this make- oh wait a second...
Matthew quickly realized: Dialga was transforming him into an Infernape!
His transformation continued from there. His hands turned blue, and golden plate-like markings appeared on his arms, legs, and chest, as he started growing white fur on his chest and legs. A tail appeared from his back, as the transformation continued to his head. A red ridge appeared over his eyes as he grew a muzzle. His ears extended slightly and a flame appeared on the back of his head, yet it didn't seem to hurt at all.
Matthew remembered everything now. Time gears, memory changes, time travel, Dialga's primal form, Grovyle...
"This is my gift to you, Matthew. You are an Infernape now, like you were a Chimchar before. You can also transform into your old human form and back when and if you need to, as an added bonus. Now, go enjoy your new life, and come back sometime."
"Thank you, Dialga." Matthew said, and he started walking downwards.
After not too long, an old friend of his showed up.
"Hi, Matthew!" she said. It was his old partner, who used to be an Eevee, but had evolved into a Vaporeon. The two had adventures together in Mystery Dungeons, and together saved the world. The two never left each other's side ever since they met.
"Hey, Eev... waitasec, no. Hey, Vaporeon! I haven't seen you in ages!"
Suddenly, Matthew and Vaporeon heard a loud noise.
"...What was that?" Vaporeon asked.
"I dunno, but we better go check!" Matthew said. The two ran off towards the sound. There, they saw two Pokémon they instantly recognized: Grovyle fighting Darkrai.
"Hey, Matthew! Vaporeon! Help me out here, will ya?" Grovyle yelled to the two.
"Okay!" the two said. They ran over to Grovyle and started attacking the Darkrai.
Matthew started off with a quick burst of Fire Punches. Those slightly affected Darkrai, but not much.
"You fools, you cannot defeat me..." Darkrai said.
"Yes we can!" Matthew yelled back.
Grovyle used a Leaf Blade on Darkrai, while Vaporeon tossed some Muddy Water at him. Darkrai didn't care too much, and used a Dark Pulse on Matthew.
After a good bit of shaking it off, Matthew used Aerial Ace on Darkrai. They were starting to get some good hits in.
Because of that, Darkrai took the trio more seriously, and used Snarl on all three of them.
"Come on, we've gotta keep going!" said Vaporeon.
"Alright", said Grovyle, "lemme at it!" He used Dragon Breath, followed with two Energy Balls.
Darkrai was almost done. The fight was getting tense (like any fight on a final destination, of course)
So he decided to use his best move: Dark Void. The move caused the team to fall asleep for a while.
Once they woke up, they realized Darkrai had caused major damage to them.
Even then, they kept fighting.
"Don't give up yet! We still need revenge!" Grovyle said. Grovyle then used X-Scissor, while Vaporeon used an Ice Beam.
Matthew used a Close Combat, then two more Fire Punches, then Darkrai was finished. After all the things he did before, they had finally got revenge.
"Well, what now?" Grovyle asked.
"I say we... Go on an adventure!" Matthew said.
"Just like old times?" Vaporeon asked.
"Just like old times." Matthew confirmed.
The dungeon explorers went on to have great adventures, making many new friends in the process. They met some old friends in the process, as well, and became some of the best Mystery Dungeon explorers ever.
