Bad Moon Rising
The warnings came from everywhere at once: from laboratory pagers to fire department radios, word spread about “The Full Moon Incident” like a wave, but the incident itself seemed like a flash. There must have been nearly 10,000 headlines to read….. the night the Kryptomon went crazy.

BAD MOON RISING: MASS KRYPTOMON HATCHING EVENT ROCKS AND SHOCKS WORLD, LITERALLY
Labs researching new Kryptomon discoveries since the summer have reported synchronous power outages and strange localized weather phenomena among other disasters, which sources say may have been caused by the creatures themselves. These reports coincide with hatching incidents across the globe as well as alleged Kryptomon disappearances in what is being called the “Full Moon Incident” on social media.
Since the discovery of their colorful eggs earlier this year, the alien species now known as Kryptomon have been a darling obsession of scientists and enthusiasts alike. Since the hatching event earlier this month, researchers and egg specialists have been curiously running experiments trying to assess the potential power and danger of these creatures, which have demonstrated latent abilities ranging from temperature control to incorporeality.
Specialists have also seen how gentle-natured and individualized these Kryptomon are, and as one researcher notes, “it has been amazing to see how well the Kryptomon respond to human care and how well they’ve been able to bond with their primary caretakers”, which have now started being called their imprints or chosen bonds.
After last night’s events, the story might be changing. The flagship lab in central Italy run by Professor Emmanuel Koa, who has been coordinating global efforts towards Kryptomon research, was among many sites nearly destroyed by elemental forces unleashed by the young creatures.
Police reports and laboratory staff accounts detail the lab nearly burning to the ground after a Fire Kryptomon couldn’t stop breathing out fire. One technician reports: “Koa’s Fire Kryptomon — I think he called it ‘Embie’ — started getting sick or something last night, fire started coming out of its mouth like baby vomit. Koa was out for a walk last night, so Embie was all alone, without its chosen bond. It looked scared, like it didn’t know what was going on. We certainly didn’t. And then the other Kryptomon got strange, too…”
Luckily for the lab, a Water Kryptomon under the supervision of the celebrated biologist Dr. Bere began to cry uncontrollably, letting out tears at such volume that it stopped the spread of the fire to the framework of the building. When Bere approached the Water Kryptomon to comfort it, the crying stopped, and the lab was able to regain control of the situation.
The laboratory has reportedly lost many of its written logs to smoke and water damage resulting from the incident, and, according to Dr. Bere, Embie and many other Kryptomon seemed to have disappeared during the incident, particularly those who had been housed in chambers nearest to the lab’s mainframe computer servers. In her report Bere notes, “We have expected and have been prepared for behavioral problems with these Kryptomon, but this is something different. This was no tantrum. The elemental powers themselves seemed to have been agitated by something. The only consistent behavior was that the Kryptomon seemed to be under control in the presence of their chosen bond. This could be another cosmic event like the day of the eggs appearing. Under a full moon, no less…”
The disappearance phenomenon has been reported by other labs under Koa’s guidance as well, such as those in Thailand, Hungary, and Ethiopia, and many facilities have noted that only the Kryptomon nearest to its lab computers at the time of the incident had vanished, suggesting this power surge and disappearance could be caused by some electromagnetic signal or digital interaction.
We were unable to reach the head of research Emmanuel Koa for comments.
Digital forensics specialists have been dispatched to recover relevant data from the damaged computers and labs have requested infrastructure aid to repair their equipment and develop more robust facilities to handle future Kryptomon-related phenomena.
