Classification: The Nemesis Pokémon
Description: A destructive force that is the opposite of the Cosmic Architect. This Pokémon periodically causes mass extinctions on Earth.

Trivia: Little is known about this mysterious Pokémon that opposes the Cosmic Architect in many ancient myths. It seems to be an entity of pure destruction and malice that lives on the extreme edge of the Solar System. It can exert its sinister influence over vast distances to cause rampant destruction. It is believed to be the cause the periodic mass extinctions that plague the Earth, including the one that wiped out the Fossil Pokémon.
Nemex’s name combines the concepts of Nemesis and Planet X, two theoretical celestial bodies on the fringe of the Solar System whose gravitational influence possibly leads to mass extinctions on Earth. Nemesis would be a brown dwarf star and Planet X a ninth planet. Concepts of both are woven into Nemex’s design. It is the second of Tenno’s event-exclusive Legendaries.
Signature Move and Ability:
The will of the user is exerted from afar, bringing disaster to the target.
Cycle of Destruction
All other Pokémon take damage at the end of each turn.
I was inspired to write movies for Cosmic Quest very early on in planning for it. I decided that if I wanted the series to feel as much like the actual series as possible, the addition of periodic movies would help a whole lot. Actually, I made Myoken for this movie. Way back all those years ago when I first created the Tenno Region I created two event-exclusive Legendary Pokémon, but not Myoken. When rebooting the region for Cosmic Quest, I realized that not only was I an event Legendary short from the standard amount of three, but I had yet to create a Pokémon to fit the “Mew Niche.” So Myoken was created, and the story of this movie based off of it.
For those of you who have read the Cosmic Chronicles, you know that I used it as an opportunity to set up for the movie, a prequel of sorts. That was not my original intention at all when planning for the Cosmic Chronicles, but I quickly realized that it was a golden opportunity since the movie would be coming out so soon. So I worked in the characters Aries and Pleiades, replacing a generic Team Interplanetary scientist and tacked on the extra scene at the end with Myoken. As I slightly tied Cosmic Chronicles into the main series, I have also tied the movie into the main series, something that I feel the real show could handle better than they do. Future chapters of Cosmic Chronicles won’t necessarily be tied into movies, this one one just happened to work out.
One interesting fact about the movie that may not be apparent to a reader of the movie is the relationship between Myoken and Dracosmic. It is actually a two-fold reference. Dracosmic is based on the real-world constellation Draco, which wraps around the North Star. The other reference is to Myoken’s mythic origins. The Japanese goddess Myoken was often depicted as riding on the head of a dragon. Hence Dracosmic serves a reference both to the real North Star and the myth of Myoken.
I hope you all enjoyed the first Cosmic Quest movie and are looking forward to the next.
Classification: The Guiding Pokémon
Description: Known as the Guiding Light, Myoken will appear to those who are lost and guide them to what their heart most desires. It is affiliated with the North Star.

Trivia: Myoken is the first event-exclusive Legendary Pokémon to be announced from the Tenno Region. It is meant to fill the same niche occupied by Mew, Celebi, Jirachi, Shaymin, Victini, and Diancie. It’s name is derived from the Japanese goddess of the North Star of the same name. The four arms of and two orbs held by Myoken are also inspired by the same goddess, as she was depicted with four arms and as holding the sun and moon discs. As an event-exclusive Legendary, the only way to obtain Myoken is either through a direct download event or via a special item known as the Polar Pass, only given away at a specific event. Once the Polar Pass is obtained, you can take it to the captain of the hover-boat, the S.S. Galaxy (the main transport between Horizoport City and Kanaveral City, as well as the only way to get to the Pokémon League). Once the Polar Pass is shown to him, the captain will recount to you a story of when he was just a young cabin boy and his ship got lost at sea. Myoken appeared to guide the ship home. He tells you that that Polar Pass proves that you are worthy of meeting Myoken, so he’ll bring you Myoken’s home, the star-shaped island known as Far North Isle. The island is mostly covered in frost and snow, but if you travel there at night, you will be treated to a magnificent view of the stars. The only thing on this island is Myoken, which you can challenge to battle and try to capture as you want.
