Both stories start the same, but from the different perspectives of either Amanda or Jack. They wake up to discover that they're turning into Pokémon before being captured by the Pokéxtinction and subsequently rescued by Jasper the Arcanine from Lower Mainland Base's PRT. However, the rescue is botched when Jack accidentally gets knocked off Jasper's back, separating them. Amanda is slammed into a tree, blacking out from the pain.
Jack wakes up only to discover he's turned into a Rattata. He is alone in a forest filled with wild animals, and the story focuses on his survival.
Amanda awakens inside one of the medical wards of the Lower Mainland Base, only to discover that getting slammed into a tree has severely damaged her back. She finds that she has become a Pikachu, and the story continues with her trying to find her brother and cope with her injury.
