Super Smash Bros. Melee: The Dark Adviser

Before I actually begin this, I wish to show more alternate cutscenes. Pretend it's like the Subspace Emissary where you get to choose from the four fighters.

As Mario swung the hammer with full force, Link and Kirby jumped quickly onto the above floating platform as Pikachu roll-dodged around the hammer. Link quickly jumped off the platform, pulling out a bomb, and throwing his boomerang. Pikachu side-stepped the boomerang, but Mario, who was spinning dizzy, couldn't recover in time to avoid being stunned by the child's plaything. Link threw the bomb into Mario's face after his boomerang returned, knocking the plumber straight out of the ring, and then narrowly dodgeing Kirby's rock form falling on his head. "Fighter one, Defeated!" a voice said.

Kirby returned to his normal form and charged Link with a burning tackle. Link responded with his boomerang, cancelling the attack. Pikachu quickly grabbed Kirby, zapping him once, before throwing him into Link with a backwards rolling throw. Kirby and Link were both damaged, but recovered easily, and silently agreed to gang up on the mouse. Pikachu wasn't expecting the double-team, but he took on his foes anyway. Link jumped back and began to draw his bow, knocking an arrow, while Kirby took Pikachu's attention. Kirby tried his hammer, but the mouse rolled away from it, and used his Quick Attack to zap Kirby twice, before returning to his position and using Thunder, knocking the puffball away a short distance. Pikachu tried to pursue Kirby, but stopped in his tracks as the pink puff jumped onto the floating platform, revealing Link behind him, a full-power arrow ready to fire. Said projectile performed said action, and was quickly followed up by a hammer smash, knocking Pikachu out of the match. "Fighter two, defeated!"

This left Kirby and Link to duke it out with each other. Kirby tried his Final Cutter, but Link rolled around it and ambushed Kirby with a Spin Attack out of nowhere. Kirby rolled as he touched the ground, turning around to face Link, was about to throw a bomb. Link chucked his explosive, but Kirby used his green-colored Shield to send it right back. The bomb exploded, sending Link over the edge, but he used his Hookshot to grab the ledge, and leapt right back on. The hylian warrior threw his boomerang, and Kirby tried his Final Cutter again. The wave from the attack was dodged by Link, who rolled around it, and he struck Kirby with his side-smash, sending Kirby out of the ring. "Fighter three, defeated! This game's winner is Link!" The hylian sheathed his sword, and revived the three defeated trophies as they returned to the field for a group wave.

OK, one more, got it? here:

As Mario swung the hammer with full force, Link and Kirby jumped quickly onto the above floating platform as Pikachu roll-dodged around the hammer. Link quickly jumped off the platform, pulling out a bomb, and throwing his boomerang. Pikachu side-stepped the boomerang, but Mario, who was spinning dizzy, couldn't recover in time to avoid being stunned by the child's plaything. Link threw the bomb into Mario's face after his boomerang returned, knocking the plumber straight out of the ring, and then narrowly dodgeing Kirby's rock form, which was falling on his head. "Fighter one, Defeated!" a voice said.

Kirby returned to his normal form and charged Link with a burning tackle. Link responded with his boomerang, cancelling the attack. Pikachu quickly grabbed Kirby, zapping once, before throwing him into Link with a backwards rolling throw, squeaking "Pika!" as he did so. Kirby and Link were both damaged, but recovered easily, and silently agreed to gang up on the mouse. Pikachu wasn't expecting the double-team, but he took on his foes anyway. Link jumped back and began to draw his bow, knocking an arrow, while Kirby took Pikachu's attention. Kirby tried his hammer, but the mouse rolled away from it, and used his Quick Attack to zap Kirby twice, before returning to his position and using Thunder, knocked the puffball away a short distance. Pikachu tried to pursue Kirby, but stopped in his tracks as the pink puff jumped onto the floating platform, revealing Link behind him, a full-power arrow ready to fire. Said projectile performed said action, and was quickly followed up by a hammer smash, knocking Pikachu out of the match. "Fighter two, defeated!"

Kirby and Link were left to battle each other one-on-one. Kirby charged with his burning tackle, as Link threw a bomb. The bomb, however, missed Kirby, soaring over his head, and Link was struck with fire. Kirby rolled behind the burning Link, and brought him up-to-the-down with his Final Cutter. Link was knocked over the edge, but he returned via his hookshot, delivering a swift-but-strong downward slash to Kirby, knocking the puff to the other side of the battlefield. Kirby rolled as he landed again, and then blasted Link out of the ring with a powerful back-flip kick. "Fighter three, defeated! The winner is Kirby!" the pink puff revived everyone and they waved to the crowd.


Just a note, I intend for most readers to imagine the settings themselves in this fic. This is because I feel describing the world is a rather assuming task, undescribed in all three entries so far in the Smash series. I also feel it would take away from the action, which is what Smash Brothers, as with any fighting game ever, is mostly about. I feel the way the world around them looks should be up to your imagination. I feel describing them would take away a bit from the experience. Is Smash Hall a mansion as most people think? A castle? A space station? –Don't even ask me about that last one—It's up to you, honestly. Imagine the world outside of the named stages as you will. Also, I'm assuming the people who read this know what the Melee cast characters look like, as they should, because….they should.

And now, back to your regularly scheduled chapter!

[Get Ready…]

Super Smash Bros. MELEE!


Soon, the feast had very quickly finished, in a surprisingly clean state. "The first match will be Pichu vs Doctor Mario, tomorrow at eleven-thirty AM. Everyone be there to see it!" Master Hand announced.

"Alright! I'm up first!" Pichu cheered energetically.

"Well, tomorrow we-a see what a medic can-a do! I'm-a wish you luck tomorrow Pichu!" the resident doctor said proudly, he and Pichu shaking hand-to-paw. Pichu then scurried back over to Pikachu. Dr. Mario decided to head to the medical bay for the time being. Soon after, everyone had already left dining hall for their own rooms. It was to be a big day tomorrow.


The sunlight seeped through the windows of the early morning, signaling most to awaken for a day of life, in the Smash Brothers world. Pichu was the first to jump out of bed, almost sending his blanket flying across the room. Pikachu, Mewtwo, and Jigglypuff soon awoke as well, along with the rest of the Smashers attending the current tournament.

As Pichu strolled down the hallway, Young Link exited his room. The two young Smashers stopped as they locked gazes. Pichu and Young Link both smiled confidently to each other.

Ever since arriving at Smash Hall, Pichu and Young Link had become rivals. Both were considered the youngest siblings of their respective groups, both had been knocked up to be very little more than just "clones" of the older Smasher, and they both had their very first real match as a draw. Since then, Young Link had surpassed Pichu and even the older Link in some ways, always winning each duel they had.

Pichu had become a great threat at Smash Hall because of Young Link. He always seemed to only have one goal in mind whenever he met Young Link: This time, defeat him. The rivals nodded to each other and continued separately, Young Link heading the direction opposite of Pichu's destination. Pichu was heading to see Doctor Mario before their match, while it seemed Young Link was heading for the Star Fox members.

Upon arrival, the good doctor closed his fist as he finished examining his electric powers, cutting off the current and stopping the electricity. He turned his head to see Pichu as the small mouse walked in. "Ah, Good-a morning Pichu!" the doctor greeted. Pichu nodded. "I'm-a wish you luck today. Just because you're-a younger than most of the other Smashers doesn't mean I won't-a go full on!"

"Chu! I'll go full-on too!" Pichu replied, determined. The doctor nodded and they left the room.

eleven-thirty came quickly. Pichu and Doctor Mario were already at the transporters for the stage they were on: Mushroom Kingdom.

A short Warp Pipe appeared out of the ground and Doctor Mario stepped out, flexing his hand for a moment in short show of electricity. "Time for a check-up!" the doctor said cheerily.

A storm cloud hovered above the ground a few feet, before striking down as Pichu materialized, pitch black, and then fell over on his back from dizziness, before shaking his head and getting up. "Pichu-pichu!" the little mouse squeaked.

Both the combatants took their "stances". Doctor Mario began the fight with a pill toss that was interrupted by a spawning brick block. "Doh!" the doctor muttered, facepalming as he forgot his own stage's hazard. Pichu jumped over the small gap and blasted him with an uncontrolled Thundershock. The doctor flinched and was knocked back a bit, but retaliated with his own spark of pain as he blasted the small mouse right back with his palm's electricity. Mario then tossed a pill at Pichu, who rolled-dodged under it and kicked him with both his feet, holding himself with his front paws.

Pichu charged up his Skull Bash, and fired quickly as Doctor Mario tried his electric palm attack again, absorbing the extra electricity and slightly boosting his own attack as he rammed the doctor, knocking him over the other side of the gap. Pichu pursued him and tried to come down on him spinning like a screw with some electricity around him, but the doctor countered him with a simple upward punch, sending him a couple of feet into the air. The doctor tried to pursue and possibly get a KO on the mouse, but Pichu wasn't about to give up and used his Agility to go past Doctor Mario, and then used Thunder to send the doctor straight upwards.

Mario recovered though, and landed on the topmost blocks as Pichu chased him. When Pichu also landed on the blocks, Doctor Mario dashed and then performed a slide kick, knocking Pichu into the air for a moment. He then performed the same upward punch from before and then jumped and performed a back-flip kick, sending Pichu upwards and into the camera, before he fell down and lost a stock.

The recovery platform emerged and Pichu got an Avenger KO as performed his Thunder move again, sending the doctor into the background with a satisfying 'ding' sound.

The doctor emerged on his own recovery platform and the two fighters broke both levitating layers of blocks before returning to their respective starting places in single leaps. "Let's-a get-a going!" Doctor Mario said.

Pichu nodded energetically and both fighters jumped to the central cliff.

Pichu started charging his Skull Bash and Doctor Mario threw a pill. Pichu launched and cancelled the pill, hitting Doctor Mario with a relatively weak Skull Bash move. Doctor Mario responded with a punch-punch-kick, and then tried his Super Sheet, turning Pichu around for a split second before the mouse kicked him with both back legs. Doctor Mario then tried to perform his Super Jump Punch, but Pichu performed Agility and evaded it, leaving the doctor to simply jump and not punch anything but air.

Pichu turned to the doctor and used Thunder Jolt, zapping him. Pichu then charged his Skull Bash while Doctor Mario approached and charged his Electric Palm move. Pichu released his Skull Bash first and the mid-charged move sent Doctor Mario flying to the other side of the map. Pichu then charged another Skull Bash as the doctor hit the ground and layed stunned momentarily. The doctor recovered quickly though, and rolled backwards before attempting to get back to Pichu.

But then Pichu finished charging.

The small mouse shot forward at high speeds and slammed into Doctor Mario, sending him straight into the Out-of-Bounds energy field and knocking off another of the doctor's Stocks. Mario respawned on the recovery platform on top as the blocks from before reappeared. After breaking the blocks around him again, the doctor said, "Not-a bad, Pichu. But I'm-a still in the game. Let's-a go!"

The doctor then performed his fully charged Electric Hand move on Pichu, sending the mouse into the same fate as himself from before. Pichu quickly dropped down though, and they resumed the fight. Doctor Mario jumped and performed his spinning drill kick, but Pichu countered it with his owning horizontal spinning electric drill move, making the doctor flinch. Doctor Mario jumped and performed a back-flip kick, hitting Pichu, who quickly recovered from it and used Thunder Jolt, zapping the doc.

Pichu jumped and performed the downwards vertical version of his earlier drill move, knocking the doctor to one of the side cliffs. Doctor Mario threw a pill at Pichu, who flinched from the hit. Doctor Mario jumped forward and drop-kicked Pichu, sending the mouse to the other side-cliff. Pichu got up quickly though, and when Doctor Mario jumped in for another aerial attack, Pichu used Thunder to stop the doctor in his tracks. As Doctor Mario fell from the move, Pichu used it once more, zapping him again, before jumping up and summersaulting with his tail outstretched to hit the doctor once more. When Pichu tried this again, however, he only received a glove to his face as the doctor recovered from his assault.

"I'm-a not gonna lose that easily, Pichu!" Doctor Mario said, landing. Pichu recovered from faceplanting and started to charge up his Skull Bash. The doctor quickly intercepted it this time, though, and Pichu rolled behind him before using Thundershock, sending the doctor forward a bit, almost out of bounds and KO'd, but not quite. When the doctor ran at him, Pichu quickly grabbed him and rolled backwards before throwing the doctor to the other side of the stage. Pichu took his chance and started charging his Skull Bash one last time to end the match. However, Doctor Mario quickly recovered again and tossed a pill. Pichu released his charge and flew over the pill, nearly hitting Doctor Mario who side-stepped, nearly sending Pichu to Self-Destruct.

Pichu quickly moved away from the end of the stage, turning around to see Doctor Mario try to blast him with his Electric Palm. Pichu quickly roll-dodged around the doctor and grabbed him, zapping him before launching him forward. When the doctor didn't get KO'd, Pichu ran forward and tackled him head-first, sending the doctor out of bounds and finally ending the match for real. Pichu bounced around multiple times before jumping and spinning, landing on the ground in a cute pose.

Doctor Mario's trophy fell down in the center of the stage. Pichu ran over and revived the doctor, before they began waving at the camera, then shaking hands- or rather, hand and paw- and being teleported back to Smash Hall. Both smashers went to their respective groups and were congratulated on their amazing first match.

"Chu! Was I good? How was the match? Do I get to move on?" Pichu energetically and childishly greeted his friends.

"You did great Pichu! You won your first match!" Pikachu congratulated.

"Jiggly! I've gotta agree, you were excellent!" Jigglypuff added.

"You did well enough." Mewtwo stated.

Meanwhile, the doctor went over to the Marios. "I didn't win, but the match was exciting, yes?" Doctor Mario said.

"Yeah, it was-a pretty good." Mario said.

"It was exciting for-a sure!" Luigi exclaimed.

"Although, I'm-a not sure you really went full-on out there. Did Pichu's age keep you holding back or-a something?" Mario asked.

The medic merely chuckled.

Suddenly, Master Hand's voice boomed out over the crowd and fighters chatting. "An excellent first match! Everyone extend their congratulations to the first two fighters!" He said. The crowd in stadium erupted into cheers and applause for the smashers. "Special congrats to young Pichu, winning his first ever tournament match on the first battle!" Master Hand added, causing the stadium to practically explode into cheers for Pichu. The smashers and Master Hand all thought they might have heard someone yelling that they wanted to squeeze Pichu because of his cuteness or something along those lines. Needless to say, they didn't exactly like the sound of that and awkwardly moved on.

"The next match will be Young Link vs Mister Game and Watch this evening at six forty-five PM." Crazy Hand's voice announced. "All fans please leave the smashers alone. We'd prefer if they did not get trampled in mobs by the crazy ones, or bombarded by autographs and fan letters." The hand added. "All fighters, please return to your personal living areas and enjoy yourselves until the battle." He finished. All the Smashers then left to retire to their personal quarters.


At two o'clock, Doctor Mario called Pichu to the medical bay for a check-up. Pikachu decided he'd come along as "adult supervision"-despite he himself by all means being a child- and accompanied Pichu on the way. Of course, Pikachu figured he knew why the doctor wanted to see Pichu, but he still wasn't the most trusting of the doctor. Far too many sharp, pointy objects, and not exactly the most knowledgeable of Pokémon anatomy. Unlike Nurse Joys, who always knew this sort of thing. Plus, certain tests involving…..things, which were just plain embarrassing.

Anyway, they quickly arrived the medical bay, where Doctor Mario was just finishing up examining Luigi. "Alright Luigi, you're fine. You may leave now." The doctor stated. Luigi quickly got up and left. Doctor Mario then took notice of the two electric mice. "Ah, hello, Pikachu. I'm-a sure you know why I called Pichu down here?" he greeted.

"This is a check up on his electricity, right?" Pikachu questioned.

"Yes. As-a you know, I use a lot of electricity in my attacks to boost their power. My-a one attack I always use full-blast is my Electric Palm Smash move, which is performed by causing an explosion of electrical energy focused in a single small location." The doctor started.

"And you're concerned you're electricity-based moves might've cause a side-effect on Pichu during the fight." Pikachu finished.

"Exactly. Pichu, please come over here and hop up on the table for me." Doctor Mario responded. Pichu did as he was told. Doctor Mario got out two small devices that Pikachu instantly recognized from his world. Measurers made to absorb and calculate an Electric-Type Pokémon's electrical output. A voltage meter, Tracy had called it. The doctor put the devices on Pichu's cheeks, directly over his electricity sacs. "Pichu, I need you try to channel your electricity into these small rods."

"Uh, doc, you might wanna be a little bit-" Pikachu started his warning, but then it had already happened. Pichu's young age and lack of ability to properly control his electricity led to him thoroughly frying the doctor, charring him black in comical manner. Once the electricity stopped, Doctor Mario fell on his back, still in the same position like a statue. He coughed, comically, with a small black cloud. "—Careful of Pichu's…elec…tric…lack…..training." he finished, slowly, trailing off at Doctor Mario's twitching form. "…Are you okay, doc?" Pikachu soon asked, slightly worried that Pichu's zapping might've been something more than the traditional comedy zap

"I'm-a…..Be….Okay…" The doctor muttered. He then blinked, shook his head, got up, jumped, spun around, and made the rest of the char fly away off of himself. "Mama mia…That's some strong electricity!" the doctor commented upon recovering. "Anyway, he seems fine…..I'm-a gonna close the medical bay until after the match tonight….." Doctor Mario then walked into the back, obscured from view.

"Okay. Pichu, let's go back to everyone else, now." Pikachu said. Pichu nodded and hopped off the table as they left to go back to their dorm.


Later that night, on the Pokemon Stadium Stage…..

Young Link slashed Game and Watch twice, sending the two-dimensional being onto the righter floating platform. He then double jumped over the stunned calculator being and performed his down thrust attack, sending Game and Watch flying high into the sky and soon enough the background with multiple echoing bleeps and eventually the ever-so-satisfying ding sound of the Final Stock Star KO. Young Link jumped down to the center of the Poké Ball symbol, putting away his shield. He then pointed his sword straight at the camera, before putting it away and dusting off his hands, putting them at his waist while taking a pose facing slightly away from the camera, his eyes towards the screen.

"This game's winner is Young Link! Good job young newcomer!" Crazy Hand announced. Game and Watch's trophy fell from the sky, and Young Link caught it quickly, reviving Game and Watch. After putting the two-dimensional being down, they were both transported outwards.

Immediately after arriving in the safe area, Pichu was right at Young Link's legs, looking up at him with fiery determination. "Chu! You had a good match! But I'm gonna beat you eventually!" he said, cheeks sparking slightly.

"Well, if you're so sure, then I'll see you in the finals." Young Link responded. He then walked off to his group.

Pichu stood there, shocked, no pun intended. The finals?! Their first ever tournament, and Young Link wanted to meet in the finals?! Was he crazy?!

As Pichu thought these, Pikachu came over to him and said, "You and I have a lot of work to do, buddy." 'I sound so much like Ash sometimes….' The older electric mouse thought to himself. "Come on, let's go have some training with the Wireframes." He suggested. Pichu shook his head quickly and nodded to Pikachu's idea.

'If he and Young Link ever fight in the tournament, it's gonna be one heck of a match. I'd better make sure he's at his best.' Pikachu thought, as they made their way to the Multi-Man Melee training area.

To be continued…..

Notes: I am SO sorry this took so long to get updated! I SWEAR this will never happen again! Anyone who like Razor or find it interesting will be pleased to know I intend to soon finish and upload a new chapter to that story sometime in the near future as well, and also up the quality of the original chapters. Also, I've updated the previous chapter in this story to be much more enjoyable, grammar-wise. I've fixed spelling mistakes and added new lines for every time someone speaks like I should. Keep in mind I'm not perfect though, so I will still be making mistakes. Also, I intend this to be humorous as well as epic and adventurous. On certain things about this fic.

1: Trophies in this fic work MUCH differently from Brawl. You can revive them by touching them anywhere on the body and as long as you intend to revive them. The trophies are also actually in-color and detailed, unlike the grey trophies in Brawl's story. Keep this in mind, as it will be important for later.

2: Onto character personalities, you'll notice some creative liberties with certain ones, such as Young Link and the Pokemon. Pikachu is LITERALLY the exact one from the anime. His little sneak move from last time was mostly just him experimenting with what it's like to pull a cheap move. Of course, he felt bad afterwards, as you can tell. Pichu, Pikachu, and Jigglypuff are all kids in this fic. Pichu's constant use of "Chu" before and after his lines are sort-of my way of conveying his energy and youth, plus a hint at something I'm gonna explain now. (Note that the same thing is with Jigglypuff, though in a less emotions-showing form) Basically, Master Hand made it so that the fighters who don't speak English or even at all, can talk in English and understand English. Marth and Roy have heavy Japanese accents, Pichu's habit of saying 'chu' and Jiggs' use of 'jiggly' or 'puff' are all basically thrown in to show their slight difficulty at adapting to English/the fact that they naturally go back to their own language in times of extreme emotion/when they want to.

I gave Young Link a sort-of "Bad$#% Childish" personality to go with his Ocarina and Majora's Mask Manga incarnations, the latter of which being the main kind of Link I have in mind when I think of the character's personality.

3: Just an extra tidbit, the exact ages of Pikachu, Pichu and Jiggs respectively are: 10, 5, and 11 years old. I go by human age since these are fantasy creatures whose exact age rates are not specified. Just thought I'd throw that out here.

4: Thundershock and Electric Palm are Pichu and Dr. Mario's Side Smash attacks, respectively.


Alternate Cutscenes:

Dr. Mario's win

Pichu quickly moved away from the end of the stage, turning around to see Doctor Mario try to blast him with his Electric Palm. Pichu quickly roll-dodged around the doctor and grabbed him, zapping him before launching him forward. When the doctor didn't get KO'd, Pichu ran forward and tried tackle him head-first, but the doctor grabbed him and threw him out of bounds, ending in his defeat. Doctor Mario threw a pill out on either side of him, before dusting off his hands and then pulling the same two pills from his pockets and balancing them on his hands.

Young Link's victory scene

Pichu glumly looked at Young Link after his return, before bursting into tears and running off. Pikachu followed after him quickly, knowing why, he wanted to comfort the small mouse.

Meanwhile Young Link congratulated Game and Watch on giving a good match. He noticed Pichu was missing. He figured it had something to do with earlier and ignored it.

Doctor Mario stood away from everyone else. He dully tossed a pill up and down, catching every time without even looking. "I was afraid this would-a happen." He sighed, put away his pill, and walked down to the medical bay.

Unique Special Scene: Comforting Pichu

Pichu didn't even care what he crashed into on his way, he just needed to be alone now, and where better than his room? He was out. He had lost his chance. He got defeated in round one. Now he didn't have anything to stop the random crowds from calling him the weakling. He had nothing to get out of being called useless. He could never have anyone help him ever again.

Pichu burst into his room and leapt onto the bed, sobbing his heart out. Why did he have to lose in the first round?! Even just the second would've been better! He could've at least said proudly that he'd beaten somebody besides Kirby and Game and Watch.

Now he could never face Young Link and beat him. He was weak, useless, pathetic. He hurt himself by attacking. He hurt himself with his own element. His own powers that made him special. He could never learn things like Volt Tackle or anything. He could never be anything except the one that was sheltered. Now he was just Pikachu's mini-self. Just something to point and laugh at.

Pichu covered himself in his blanket and cried to himself. He couldn't believe it. His first ever real match, and he was beaten like it was nothing. He entered the tournament only to drop out again, practically. Why did Pikachu even let him in?! He knew Pichu like the back of his paw! Did he just ignore the obvious weakness?! Or forget about it?! Did he even care?!

Suddenly the door to his room opened. Pichu wrapped the cover around himself like a cocoon and tried to make himself stop crying. But he couldn't.

Pikachu slowly and carefully approached Pichu's bed. He saw the white blanket get tighter around the small mouse as he opened the door. He heard the poor thing sniffle multiple times. "Pichu?" He quietly questioned. Pichu seemed to wrap himself even tighter at that. When Pikachu finally reached the bed, he sighed, and said, "Pichu, are you okay, buddy?" All he got in response was a quiet sniffle and the almost non-existent sound of tears wetting the bed. "Pichu, look at me." He said. Pichu shifted slightly, but otherwise remained the same.

"I can't do anything right…." Pikachu heard, followed by a sob. "I'm weak…..I'm useless…Isn't that right?" Pichu sobbed more after those.

"Hey now….." Pikachu started, "Don't say those things about yourself! What makes you think that, anyway?" He said.

"I can't even win the first round!" Pichu exclaimed, full-on crying again.

"That's not true….." Pikachu said quietly. He figured out where this was going….

"Yes it is! I can't even beat another weakling opponent! My first ever fight was a draw and I've always lost since!" Pichu yelled.

Instead of responding verbally, Pikachu walked around the bed to the side Pichu was facing and sat down on the edge. "Hey, you know something? My first fight ever was an epic loss." Pikachu started. Pichu seemed to perk up at that. "You'd never guess it, but I was kind of a jerk at first. When Ash first got me, I was the definition of mean. I didn't bother to listen to what Ash said and passed him off as a total idiot. Even his own PokeDex insulted him!" he continued. Pichu still sniffled, but he seemed interested enough. "Then there was this flock of Spearow. Ash ticked one off and the whole group came after us. I tried to fight them, but there were a ton of them and I was caught off-guard." Pichu still sniffled, but at least he had his attention.

"Anyways, after a heroic moment and all that I realized Ash was pretty good guy. Still kind of a moron at times, but he was a great friend. Luckily he's gotten smarter over the course of time. Either way, I eventually fought back the Spearow with an extremely convenient lightning bolt struck me and let me unleash a huge blast of electricity. My first ever fight and I probably wouldn't be here today without that lightning bolt. Most of my battles afterwards with significant people where usually either losses or draws. I got a lot of good wins in, but I still lose a lot." Pikachu explained. "In the previous tournament, I was dead last. I lost in round one to Kirby, who went on to be a finalist against Mario. I took it pretty hard. It was my once in a lifetime chance! But…..Then realized we could all just keep going no matter what. Eventually I learned this new tournament was coming up and I was excited for it. I figured that I'd take my loss as a simple sign that I just need more training. Ash always makes me and his other Pokémon train every chance we get, so we're all pretty strong."

Pikachu paused for a moment to look at Pichu, who was still crying. "Pichu…..what I'm trying to say is, you shouldn't take this so hard. It's one simple loss; just learn from your mistake! There'll be another tournament after this one. Just train yourself, and you'll get there! Get up when you fall down." he said. Pichu seemed to just continue crying. "Pichu…" Pikachu muttered quietly. He turned around and sat Pichu up, then embraced him in a hug. "You're fine, Pichu. You're strong and you're skilled. You just need more practice, that's all." Ha said, trying to sooth the still crying Pichu. Pichu cried for a little while longer, Pikachu comforting him the whole time. "You are not weak. You are not helpless. You are strong." He kept saying. Eventually, the young mouse Pokémon fell asleep. Pikachu smiled when he heard Pichu start snoring. Gently and carefully, he placed the little mouse Pokémon onto the bed and covered him in the blankets.


You refer to this scene in a negative manner, and you shall die. A very, very painful death.

There are not enough Pikachu/Pichu siblings moments in any fanfic. In fact, don't think there are any besides this one, because everyone's too busy making Pikachu out to be a FREAKING JERK who doesn't CARE about anything but himself. Ugh.

Anyway, I hope this scene is as emotional to you as it is to me. If not, then I'm clearly not doing my job right, because this scene is supposed to be cute and adorable and fluffy and tear-jearker-y and heartwarming at the same time. I DON'T CARE IF IT'S CHEEZY OR CLICHÉ!

Sad to say, this scene is NOT canon to the storyline of this fic. None of the cutscenes that take place after the To Be Continued are. They are simply here for if you are interested in alternate scenarios. All scenes BEFORE the Intro with all the names of the Melee characters are also non-canon, so Pikachu wins the first ever fight in this fic. Ha.

To answer Cobalsh's question, I will say that two maybe three or more Brawl characters will appear eventually in this fic.
