Pokefutures

Pokefutures (note the lack of é) is a multinational corporation and conglomerate that exists in the Suocéverse prior to the events of G1/G3. They performed studies on Pokémon in search to release products that would realize a closer bond between the two classes. In reality, they turned out to be an evil corporation torturing and studying Pokémon for their own goals.

History

Spoilers!
This section deals with events not yet published in Suocéverse canon (as of the last update of this article).

 

Pokefutures was born, metaphorically speaking, from the rubble that was left after the extermination of the Rienna Valley Sovereignty in late ~3650s. The Emisre big pharmas behind the infiltration of the government and the purge of the Sovereignty dissolved into the shadows and migrated away from Emisre and into the neighbour region of Angela, where they eventually reshaped themselves into the form of a corp taking the name “Pokefutures”.

Over the next 40 years and thanks in no small part to the resources obtained from looting the Sovereignty and draining the Emisre government, Pokefutures stockholders and researchers fortified the company and stretched its reach into various ventures and scientific fields, until Pokefutures itself became a multinational MegaCorp entrenched in the research environments of nations from Orre to Sinnoh. Because of their tremendous reach, other companies faced lot of trouble trying to compete in the various fields, though this ended bringing up the development of technologies such as Project Digimon by Silph Co..

Much as Pokefutures was widely believed to be in the study and development of various technologies to create a greater bond between humans and Pokémon, the veil of the economical and technological bonanza was lifted painfully in 3728 PE, shortly before the events of G1/G3. After an infiltration by Trainers who had tracked poaching activity to Angela, Pokefutures' true nature was exposed as they were revealed to be behind severe, systematic ethics violations on both humans and Pokémon, primarily Pokémon, who were caged and experimented upon. Pokefutures' true nature revealed to the world at large took down not only the corporation but also the entire nation of Angela, whose economical standing was almost fully dependent on the income generated by the multinational.

RBy the time right before the awakening of the Warring Triad, various law enforcement agencies were conducting worldwide hunts for Pokefutures assets, including their staff, whose knowledge and research data was believed to be critically dangerous to the stability of the world. Eventually some of the captured technological resources were handed over to Project PEFE with the goal of doing what was possible to regain the trust of not only the various nations, but also the Sovereignties.

The most solid components of former Pokefutures remained at large and established themselves in Orre, becoming the special team Cipher.

Legacy

Pokefutures' existence and actions are, in a meta sense, the foundation behind much of the recent chronology of the Suocéverse. The very circumstances behind the creation of the company led to the destruction of the Rienna Valley Sovreignty and with it to the abandonment of Isla Triángulo, which itself prompted Rayquaza to migrate there form the Arctic Circle.

The purge also left at least two survivors, who would later resurface and employ specialist saboteour “S” to carry out surgical strikes against the megacorp.

During the time Pokefutures was active it was a great contender in most scientific and civil research fields, prompting competitors like Silph and Devon to give their all, eventually originating important projects such as Porygon and Castform. It might also be that part of the reasoning behind Giovanni's commissioning of Mewtwo was to have a weapon to use in case Pokefutures tried to use their influences to take over Kanto.

After the Fall, many of the Pokefutures assets tried to make a run for it and hide, hoping to sell their technology and capabilities to other “evil teams” brewing at the time. Their influence led to Galactic Technology Systems to research ways to neutralize the Lake Trio; their largest offshots restructured themselves by joining Cipher and giving them the technology for Shadowification; some of their test designs were employed by the Determinants of Baronesia to hold an entire city hostage as a showcase for a worldwide criminal bid; and some of their assets developed Project Megarig with the purpose of taking down high-tier Legendaries such as Rayquaza (which ends up with the destruction of Mirtadenal City) and Giratina and Lugia (which ends up essentially bringing up the events of M2 and M11).

The very reveal of Pokefutures' existence also spurred some Legendaries back into action: in particular, the regent Muskedeer Trios of Cadrícea and Unova rallied their followers into carrying out a military invasion of the regions of Suocé/Caledoria and Angela; fortunately those situations were defused by a number of high-ranking Trainers who sought parlay with those Trios, most notably Alder (in Unova) and Nadia Shepard (in Suocé). Others were not so lucky - as one of the Legendaries that protected the the neighbour regions to Orre fell prey to Cipher's tremendously increased power, eventually being turned into Shadow Lugia.

By the time of the events of G2/G4, the hunt for Pokefutures assets is still ongoing, with a crisis that has established itself to be similar to the crisis that the reveal of HYDRA caused in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With a number of Pokefutures offshots increasing their presence, the world faces dangerous and almost apocalyptic situations every one or two years.

About the only good things that can be said to have come from the activities of Pokefutures were the birth of the PEFE organization to try and contest the damage, and the strengthening of relationships between Pokémon and humans in regions such as Unova, which led to the nomination of Champion Alder.

Meta

Pokefutures as an organization originates from WAAPT and shares much of its background with it, up to and including being the ultimate originators of the PEFE project in-universe.

The lack of an é in Pokefuture's name is meant to represent their utter disrespect towards Pokémon.
