Ash Ketchum
One year after The Network...

"We're here live, at the Sinnoh League Champion's Challenge Cup! Ash Ketchum of Pallet Town, Kanto who won this year's Sinnoh League Tournament has blitzed through the Elite Four and is now up against reigning Champion Cynthia Maeter of Celestic Town!! It's a heated battle folks, and both combatants Pokémon are on their last legs! Pikachu vs. Lucario! It looks like this next move will decide the championship!!"


Two years later...

Ash Ketchum sat next to Pikachu watching the old tape of his battle with Cynthia...

After becoming Japan's number one Pokémon Master two years ago he had dedicated himself to battling the up and rising Team Galactic. Their true motives were as of yet unknown, but it was clear that they were planning something big, possibly even bigger than the Rocket takeover during the days of Giovanni.

"Hey, hey boss! I think we got somethin'!" A blonde haired teen announced, bursting into the room.

"Hm?" Switching off the TV, Ash and Pikachu turned to look at the two who entered the room.

"Dude! You can't just burst into Mr. Ketchum's office like that without announcing yourself first!" The blonde haired teen's partner protested.

"Oh, right... Sorry 'bout that, Field Agents Jun Matsumoto and Lucas Taylor reporting sir!"

"It's too late now, he already knows we're here..." Lucas muttered.

Lucas Taylor and Jun Matsumoto, two up and coming Pokémon Trainers Ash met about a year ago shortly after he and Gary went their separate ways, both of them show a lot of promise and saw Ash as a great figure. They entered the last Sinnoh League Tournament, but Lucas only made it to the top 16, while Jun was defeated in the first round by a guy who made it to the finals.

"C'mon guys, it ain't a big deal... I don't really think the living room of a Hearthome apartment qualifies as an office anyway..." Ash replied. "So, you said you've got something on Team Galactic?"

"Well, I'm not sure if it's of any importance..." Lucas started.

"They seem to be gathering at Mount Coronet!" Jun blurted, cutting his partner off.

"Yeah, what he said..." Lucas muttered, Jun had always been too impatient for his own good. Even when they were only kids.

"Mount Coronet..." Something suddenly clicked in Ash's head, he remembered something Cynthia had told him years ago. "Cyrus must be going to the Spear Pillar..."

"Spear Pillar?" Jun asked.

"Yeah, it's a legendary place atop Mount Coronet, said to be home to the Lords of Time and Space. If Team Galactic takes control there, it won't just be Sinnoh at stake, or even the world. The entire universe could potentially be destroyed."

"Lords of Time and Space? It sounds a little Farfetch'd to me..." Lucas replied.

Pikachu sweatdropped, he hated these bad puns.

"You're always all doom and Gloom when it comes to these things Lucas... Sometimes you just need to embrace the Unown! What about that Pokémon we saw at Lake Verity?"

"Kaa..." Pikachu sighed a sigh of annoyance, this is worse than the 'Cowterpie' joke...

"Now Jun... Don't try getting all Cleffa with me, it's not as if you can be Absol-utely sure that thing was the rumoured Legendary Pokémon..."

"... Pika." A throbbing vein appeared on Pikachu's forehead.

"Uh, guys... Can you stop using all these ghastly puns?" Ash asked sweatdropping.

That was the last straw. No more of this crap. "PIKACHUUUU!!!" Everyone in the room received a severe shock.

"Ok, we ready to move on?" A somewhat frazzled Ash Ketchum asked.

"Yes... Sir..." Jun and Lucas replied, before passing out.


Five days later...

"We're almost at the top!" Jun called from up ahead.

"We're coming, we're coming!" Lucas replied.

"Not good." Ash said, emerging from the cave. "Look at the colour of the sky..."

Lucas paled slightly. "You sure that even qualifies as a colour?"

"Stop worryin' 'bout the sky! Hurry up already!" Jun called.

"He's right. We have to keep moving." Ash replied.

"GAH!" suddenly, Jun fell back down from the ledge he was on, Ash and Lucas were just able to catch him.

"What happened?" Ash asked him, before Jun could reply another voice answered...

"We happened." Came the answer, as Jupiter and Mars looked down on them. "We're not going to let you interfere in our Boss' plans any longer."

"Ugh, they only got me by surprise... Lucas and I can take care of these two Boss, you go on ahead." Jun said, getting back on his feet.

"Gotcha." Ash replied. "C'mon Pikachu!"

"Pika!" the two of them shot past the Galactic Commanders.

"You can't do that!" Mars protested, turning as Ash went by.

"Bra!" A shot of psychic energy almost had Mars lose her balance.

"Leave Mr. Ketchum out of this, we're your opponents." Lucas said, his Kadabra standing ready for battle.

'No... It can't end like this... It can't!' Ash Ketchum thought to himself as he saw the world disappearing around him. At Mount Coronet's Spear Pillar, the fabric of Space and Time was beginning to tear. 'It just can't!' There was no escaping his fate, not this time. If only he hadn't gotten involved in this stupid thing, he wished that he hadn't interfered... No, that's not right. He didn't wish that. Not since he knew what Cyrus would have done if he hadn't... Less than half an hour ago (or due to warping time, 4.7 seconds, 2 months, 34 years or 5 weeks ago depending on your point of view), Dialga and Palkia had been awoken, if only he had gotten here before then...


26 minutes, 43 seconds earlier...

"Cyrus Akagi!" Ash called as he came into view, "It's time to settle this!"

"So, the famous Ash Ketchum... Pokémon Master extraordinaire, that's quite an impressive position, I must say that I'm honoured that you came to witness my ascension, I was afraid you weren't going to show this time. Of course, not half as honoured as you should be, standing in the presence of your new God!"

"God, huh? That's a shame... You see, I've seen a lot of things in my time, things you wouldn't believe... And I don't believe in any kind of omnipotent God, therefore you shouldn't exist! Go, Pikachu!" Ash replied, beginning his battle with Cyrus as Dialga and Palkia raged in the background.


'Therefore you shouldn't exist, huh?' Ash thought again...

Somewhat ironic now, since from what he could tell, neither he nor Cyrus existed anymore... All around him now was blackness, with Cyrus fading in the distance, the only one still with him now was Pikachu.

"I'm sorry I got us into this mess Pikachu..." he said to his partner.

"Pika pika!" the small yellow rodent protested, telling Ash he had nothing to apologise for.

"... You're right. We did the right thing, there's no telling what could have happened to the world if we didn't stop him."

It was at this point that Ash Ketchum seemed to completely disappear from existence, presumed dead after what seemed like a massive explosion that destroyed the entire Spear Pillar atop Mount Coronet...


Two hours later...

"Hey, Jun! I found Mr. Ketchum's Poké Balls!"

"Only his Poké Balls? Where's the rest of the Boss?"

"I don't know... There's nothing else here."

"Oh... What should we do then?"

"There's nothing we can do here, Team Galactic isn't a problem anymore..."

"Maybe we should go back down then, everyone should know the truth about the Boss' sacrifice... After all, it's thanks to him they're all still alive..."

"No. What happened here should stay between us. I don't know if those Lords of Time and Space are still here or not, but just in case if any others like Cyrus were to return to this place, I doubt there'd be anyone as selfless as him to save us... There simply aren't enough real heroes in the world like Mr. Ketchum was."

As the two boys collected the Poké Balls left behind, further away than they could possibly imagine, a new adventure was beginning...


"Chuu!!" Ash was awoken by a jolt of Electricity.

"Pikachu?" he looked at the Pokémon standing beside him before getting up and surveying the area.

"... Pikachu, I've got a feeling we're not in Kanto anymore." Looking up and seeing something flying across a rainbow, quite possibly a hallucination, suddenly gave him a major wave of déjà vu; it felt like a new beginning...

"We must be over the Rainbow."

After coming to his senses and realising what he just said made no sense whatsoever, he reached for his belt to feel for his Poké Balls... All gone. He put his hand up against his aching head. After finding it wet to touch, he looked to see blood on his hand.

"Ugh... Well at least I know I'm not dead again..." He dismissed it as just a minor cut as he saw what appeared to be a town in the distance. "Come on Pikachu, lets go see where we are."

The Sinnoh League [May. 29th, 2008|09:20 pm]
Ash Ketchum
Well, this is it. The moment I've waited for so long. World peace... Well, kinda... And about damn time too. Pikachu and I finally heading off to compete in the Sinnoh League, and Gary's coming too.

Y'know... It's strange how things turn out, I still remember the day I left Pallet Town and almost got killed by a flock of Spearow, and since that day, lots of other things have tried to kill me too. (And sometimes, they've even succeeded.) And the day after the Spearows was when I met Jessie, James and Meowth of Team Rocket, and ever since then they've followed me to the ends of the universe and back. (One time they actually managed to follow me to the planet Pippi after we went there with a group of Clefairy.) And not only that, but true to the Rocket name, I've sent them blasting off again and again...

But despite being mortal enemies, we're almost like best friends after dealing with each other for so long. And it's strange, but I've actually been invited to their wedding. That's right, Jessie and James are getting married. And surprisingly they've offered to let me be the Maid of Honor. (Apparently, Meowth already had dibs on Best Man.)

I'm really not sure what to think... They've done a lot of strange things in their time, but this has to top the cake. It's even stranger than the time they tried to create a Magikarp army by trying to lure them with cheese. (Apparently some Mexican guy told them that Magikarps love cheese...)

Y'know, despite the fact they were always causing trouble and trying to steal Pikachu, I'm really gonna miss them once they settle down... Pikachu however is just glad he won't be caught in any more of their nets, he claims that they chafe really bad, especially between the legs.

Well then, I guess this is it. My final farewell... I really don't know if I'll ever see any of you again, however that's the way the world works... When one horizon closes, another one opens... Or something like that. It doesn't really matter what the future holds, 'cause Pikachu and I will face it together. And someday we will make it to the top, the place we've been searching for ever since that stormy day on Route 1.

We'll go through fire, water, grass, forests, dirt and clouds (en dat gurlz skert tu) if we have to.

I have no doubt at all that we will make it to the top and I'll finally become a Pokémon Master, and that day can't come soon enough.

I saw Team Rocket at a bus station today, strangely they didn't seem to be causing trouble, but they were looking for me nonetheless... Although by the time they found me, Pikachu and I were already on a bus back to Pallet Town. I heard them calling something like "Stop the bus! Wait! Hey Twerp! We have something important to tell you!"

Then they got hit by a speeding Taxi and blasted off...

I wonder what they wanted to tell me?

Not much to say... It seems that Rocket control over some of the more distant regions has been crumbling a bit. Seems like a good chance to try pushing more here in Kanto.

I have to wonder what could be causing such inner turmoil for them though. I came across the three stooges lately and I managed to beat the fact that they haven't been able to contact the boss recently out of them... I guess something might have happened at the top.

Well, look who's back for the new year! That's right, the one, the only, Ashton R. Ketchum.

It's been a while hasn't it? Thing is, that after all the events that happened a few months ago I needed some time to myself. And well, I've done my time and am ready to come back into the world. After all, I can't just run off and pretend the world doesn't exist anymore. I have to make a stand, and now's as good a time as any. If I waste my time doing nothing, then nothing will happen, nothing will change. It's upto me to make a change to bring things back to the way they should be...

These Rockets don't realise the preciousness of the gift of life, and how no-one has the right to take the life of another living being... Which is why something has to be done to fix thing the way they were. I'm not even sure if I'll ever even see Brock alive again... But if I do, I'll be able to be proud of the actions I made instead of hiding away in some desolate cave. Maybe trying to change things to the way they were is futile... I realise that. But, as long as I don't give up, no effort will ever be futile, if I try, maybe it'll work... If we all keep our spirits up, we can never be defeated! Because we'll continue burning for our goal!

I can't sit still any longer, not with all the recent events that have happened. I'm leaving. I'm going to Mount Silver to train, I don't know when I'll be back, but it's better than doing nothing here.

Darn it... Things seem to be going from bad to worse... Brock, Ariel, Flint, Lola and the kids are captured by Team Rocket... Now Rory, Sui and Lenore are dead... I... I just can't believe it. And what am I doing? I'm sitting around at home because I can't challenge the Sinnoh League. I feel so helpless, so useless... Even if I went somewhere, there would be nothing I could do. I can't believe it's come to this...
