After saying farewell to Cilan and Iris, Ash and Pikachu head back to Pallet with their adventures in Unova fondly remembered. Even though Ash only made it to the top eight in the league, he was still happy he had an excellent adventure in Unova.
"Well Pikachu, we had a great time in Unova. What should we do now?" Ash asked his best and first Pokemon.
"Pi Pika-Chu Pika Pika Pika Chu!"("How about we go back home to Pallet!") Pikachu suggested.
"That's a great idea Pika-Pal! Come on let's go home!" Ash said excitedly as he picked up Pikachu and sprinted for home.
Three to four hours later Ash and Pikachu arrived at Pallet because they went by jet...
"Well Pikachu here we are good old Pallet! Let's go home!" Ash said as he and Pikachu Sprinted to his house. Ash knocked on the door waiting for it to open. When it did, a surprising site greeted his eyes. Misty was the one who opened the door.
"Welcome home Ash! How was the Unova League?" Misty asked.
"It was great Misty! I got all of the Badges and took part in the league, unfortunately I didn't make it as far in the Unova League as I did in the Sinnoh League. I wish I would've used some of my other Pokemon. It's great to see ya Mist!" Ash exclaimed as he hugged Misty tightly causing her to almost choke!
"Ash! Stop it, I can't breathe!" Misty managed to cough out.
"Sorry Mist! It's just been a long time since I've seen you. How did you know I was coming home?" Ash said confused.
"After your mom received the letter that said you were coming home, she gave me a call." Misty said.
"Where's Mom now?" Ash asked.
"Oh she went shopping with Mimie. She wanted to prepare you a welcome home victory dinner." Misty said.
"Oh okay. So how's the Gym Leader life?" Ash asked.
"It's kind of boring because I win almost all the time. I have only been defeated once and that was by Sakura and her Espeon. Do you remember Sakura from Ecruteak City?" Misty asked.
"Yes I do she's the youngest of five isn't she?" Ash asked.
"Yes she is. By the way Ash, congratulations on your accomplishment in the Unova League, even though you didn't make it as far as you did in Sinnoh. Still Top eight out of hundreds of competitors is still quite the accomplishment." Misty said.
"Thanks Mist!" Ash said as he hugged Misty once again this time not choking her. "The only thing that matters is that I had fun."
"That is all that matters Ash." Misty remarked as she motioned her friend over to the sofa. "Let's watch some TV and tell me all about your Unova Journey.
"Misty I'm home! Oh Hi Ash I'm so glad to see you! My little boy!" Deliah said as she squeezed Ash.
"Mom, I can't breathe very well you're chokin' me." Ash said while coughing from being choked.
"Oh sorry sweetie. It's just been so long since I've seen you." Delia said.
"I missed you too Mom. Pikachu come see my mom." Ash said.
"Pika Pika Pikachu Pika Pika."(Nice to see you again Mrs. Ketchum.) Pikachu said.
Ash and Misty then decided to look at some memories in photo albums. They came across a wedding announcement that said this: Delia Kaltner to wed Giovanni Ketchum. Ash also found a picture of him and a little girl at their 4th birthday. The banner behind them said Happy Fourth Birthday Ash and Cynthia. If I were to say that Ash and Misty were shocked it would be a major understatement.
"Hey Mom?" Ash asked.
"Yes Sweetie?" Deliah answered
"I have two questions. One, who is this girl that has her arm around me in this picture of my 4th Birthday Party? Two, is Giovanni really my Father? Ash asked. Misty had the same two questions on her mind.
"To answer your first question Ash, that is your twin sister Cynthia. Your father got custody of her and I got custody of you after the divorce. Yes Ash and Misty Giovanni is Ash's Father. He is the leader of the Viridian Gym and Team Rocket. I'm sure you can catch him at the Viridian Gym." Delia said.
"We'll set out tomorrow Misty. Right now let's eat and watch some television then go to bed. We have a long day tomorrow." Ash said.
The Next Morning After Breakfast...
"Bye Mom we will get to the bottom of this." Ash said.
"Yes Mrs. Ketchum we will." Misty said as her and Ash strapped on their Pokebelts and headed off to Viridian City looking for some answers.
"Hey Mist, I think I should stop by Professor Oak's Lab to get some of my older Pokemon. They will probably do better than the ones I have. I am going to keep Snivy, Oshawott, and Pignite."
"That sounds like a good plan Ash."
With that, Ash and Misty headed to the Lab.
Inside the Lab...
"Hey Ash, it's been a while. How did you do in the Unova League?" Professor Oak remarked.
"I didn't do as well as I did in the Sinnoh League, I only got to the top eight. Pikachu and I came up against a really strong Lucario. By the way, have my other Unova Pokemon arrived yet? I only have Snivy, Pignite, Oshawott, Boldore, and Unfezant with me in addition to Pikachu." Ash remarked wondering if his other Unova Pokemon have made it here.
"I have received Krookodile, Scraggy, Palpitoad, and Leavanny; they are out in the preserve Your other Pokemon are waiting for you."
"Hey Misty, do you want to go outside and see the rest of my Pokemon I caught in Sinnoh?"
"I sure do Ash. Let's go." Misty remarks as she follows Ash outside.
Ash is Body Slammed by Bayleef as usual.
"It's great to see you again Bayleef, did you meet my other Pokemon from Unova?"
Bayleef nods and wonders which Pokemon that Ash has on his belt.
Ash took the Pokeballs off of his belt and threw them in the air. Out came Snivy, Pignite, Oshawott, Boldore, and Unfezant. Ash was also greeted by Krookodile, Palpitoad, Boldore, and Leavanny. Soon all of Ash's Pokemon greeted him. Then out of nowhere coming from the sky was an old friend of his. This old friend of Ash's greeted him with the customary Flamethrower. He was followed by Liza from the Charicific Valley on the back of Charla's back.
Liza explained that Claire decided to look after all the Charizard in the valley for a while. She also explained that she built a Dragon Pokemon reserve so Claire could store her dragons there as well. It seems that Liza was going to help Professor Oak take care of the Pokemon.
Ash had then made his decision. He had chosen the team he was going to take with him in addition to Pikachu.
He had chosen to take Snivy, Pignite, Charizard, Oshawott, and Staraptor with him in addition to Pikachu, but promised he would rotate his Pokemon in whenever he could. Misty was so excited. After saying goodbye to Professor Oak and Tracy, Ash and Misty headed to Viridian City to investigate.
Outside Viridian City Gym...
"Well Misty there's Viridian Gym. Let's get to the bottom of this." Ash said.
"I'm with you all the way Ash." Misty said while she was holding Azurill
"Ready to get to the bottom of this Pikachu?" Ash asked.
"Pika chu Pika Pika Pi!"(Ready as I'll ever be Ash let's go!) Pikachu said.
"Alright! Pika Pika Azu Azurill!" Ash, Misty and Pikachu said as they started investigating around the Gym.
Ash, Misty, Pikachu, and Azurill continued the investigation when all of a sudden they all fell into a pitfall.
"You twoips picked the wrong place to snoop!" Meowth said in a disguised voice.
"Who are you? Pika Pikachu Pika! Azu Azurill.
"What do you want?" Ash and Misty chimed in unison.
"What do we want? Such a twerpish question indeed!" A female voice said.
"The answers to come as we feel the need." A male voice said.
"Bringing the blinding white light of evil into the future!" The female said.
"Thrusting the hammer of justice down onto the black darkness of the universe!" The male said.
"Carving our names in the Rock of Eternity!" Another voice said.
"The fiery destroyer, Jessie!" The female said.
"And with thunderous emotion, I am James!" The male said.
"Wisest of the wise, Meowth!" The third voice says.
"And now gather, under the name of Team Rocket!" All three of them say and pose.
"Team Rocket!" Ash said.
"We should have known!" Misty said.
Jessie and James then sent out some all too familiar Pokemon to Ash and Misty.
"Seviper! Glare on the twerps, Pikachu and Azurill!"
"Can't move Pika Pika Azurill." Ash, Misty, Pikachu, and Azurill all said in unison before they lost consciousness.
"Grunts, show these twerps and their Pokemon to their new quarters. They are going to be here for a while!" Jessie ordered.
"Jessie we actually won one!" James exclaimed.
"Meowth Dat's right! Let's see what the boss thinks of us now!" Meowth said.
"Yes we did! Ha ha ha ha ha ha haha ha!" Jessie cackled.
Meowth and James followed suit after the Grunts took our heroes away.
Oh No! Team Rocket has captured our heroes! Is Giovanni Ash's father? To find out, stay tuned for Chapter Two: Training Years ! Coming soon!
TO BE CONTINUED...
I hope this one is a bit better.
