Oh my god! With all of the things that I had to do in school so far, I'm surprised that I have the time to do this at all! As with most people in the Fan Fiction area, this is contestshipping with May and Drew in the Zuki Region. Don't worry, I brung back old favorites like Misty, Brock, and Max, even Team Rocket is back on the scene! But they don't appear every show like in the anime- They're simply rivals that appear at times during the season, since I want a different idea for every Pokemon Contest.
That's right . . . There is a new bad-guy organization in this anime series, and the leader of it may shock you. I think that I should spoil it for you as this should be like, the commercial for the season . . . The leader is Harley! Yes, Harley is my favorite Pokemon human character from the anime series. He has an entire team of staff that he hired that constantly try to beat May and Drew during their adventures throughout the Zuki Region.
Here's the prolouge for you, which is when May and Drew realize that they got tickets to travel to the Zuki Region from an unknown person . . .
Rated: PG-13 because of something very evil that happens later.
The scene takes place two months after the last grand festival that May and Drew were in, the Orchida Festival in the Contesta region. It is a cold, winter day in the Hoenn region, where May is presently living with her family in the Petalburg Gym.
"It's so cold," May complained, "And I'm so bored!"
"What's the matter, dear?" May's mom asked her, whose name was Caroline, "You could go outside and play with Max, I mean, he just got home from his adventures in the Hoenn region ever since he became a trainer of his own."
"No mom. It's freezing outside," May replied, "And Max was always serious before he became a Pokemon Trainer. Now that he's a successful one, he's going to become an even more serious person, and you know how I hate people that don't hang loose."
"I guess that you have nothing better to do," Caroline smiled, "Maybe something will come up soon and then you'll have a place to go."
*DING DONG!* The door bell ringed.
Caroline had a curious face on, "Hmm...I wonder who could it be?" She came to the door and then opened it. There was a man in a brown cloak with purple hair and a green hat on; He was strangely familiar, "And who might you be?"
The man chuckled, "I'm a friend of a friend- That's what you can consider me as," he said in a girlish voice. It was a girly voice, but it was still close enough to be a man, "I have a letter for your daughter, May."
Caroline giggled, "Are you a boy or a girl?"
The man in the cloak suddenly got all serious and had a red face. He removed his cloak, and it revealed Harley! "I'm a boy...What do you think?"
Caroline laughed more, "It wasn't supposed to be a serious question- I was kidding! Now what did you say that you came here for?"
Harley's face became less red, "I have a letter here for May- Can you give it to her for me?"
"Sure, Ill give it to her right away . . . It's nothing so bad, now is it?"
"Of course not, Caroline! I would never try to do something like that to your dear and perfect daughter! And don't tell her that it was me that gave the letter to her, okay? Keep this on the DL for me, okay? We can't have anybody ruining the surprise for her, now can we?"
"Of course not, Harley. But how come you don't want me to tell May that you gave this letter to her?" Caroline asked, "I mean, you're one of her friends so I think that she should at least know that it was from you, right Harley?" Caroline was always one of the forgiving people and she didn't think of Harley as a bad-guy even though he lied and cheated May many times in the past and even tried to rape her once when she was in the Contesta region! She was so forgiving that it was dangerous.
Harley laughed hysterically, "Oh how can I even think of doing something like that to her? Lying to her that somebody gave her a letter that she doesn't know who gave it? That's horrible. But that's not the point. Can you give it to her as a surprise? I'm sure that she'll find out that the letter was from me eventually. Pretty please? Pretty please?" Harley was on the ground pretend-begging Caroline.
"Of course Harley."
"Oh really?" Harley got all peppy, "Thank you so much for doing me this favor!" He ran off into the snowy areas until he was out of sight.
"Aren't you cold, Harley?" Caroline was always concerned about everybody's welfare, even if that person wasn't a part of the family, "Oh well...Harley told me not to tell May that it was from him. I might as well read it to see if it is something appropriate for her." Caroline opened the letter, and it revealed a sheet of paper with a green-tone color on it. She began reading it and this is what the letter said:
I think that you know who this letter is from!
It's me! I want to keep you guessing who sent this mail so that you can be that much more surprised when you find out who sent it. Happy times, right?
Have you ever heard of the Zuki region?
I heard that you're freezing cold from the winter in the Hoenn Region right now so I thought, why not give you free tickets so that you can go to the Zuki region?
The scenary there is awesome and it is summer all year long there- Don't you think that's cool? Well, not as cool as the Hoenn Region since it's freezing cold over there but you get what I mean.
Have fun there! And yeah, there's nothing but Pokemon Contests in that region like the Contesta Region so if you want to go and have fun, feel free to! All you have to do is meet me in Dewford Town so that we can take the S.S Atlanta there.
You know who
"Hmm..." Caroline murmured, "What am I thinking? Why am I mumbling? I'm so jealous of May? She gets to go to a region that's summer all year long and I have to freeze to death here in the Hoenn Region? I shouldn't do anything to ruin this wonderful moment that May is going to receive so I might as well give this to her!" Caroline said with rising excitement for May.
She walked into the Petalburg City Gym, "May? Where are you? I have some super good news for you!"
May ran into the living room where Caroline was right now, "Anything's better than what's going on right now. So what do you have for me?"
Caroline gave May the letter and the ticket that was attached to it.
"What's this?" May wondered, "It looks like a letter."
"It is," Caroline replied, "Open it!"
May did as her mom asked of her, "Dear May..." She began reading it outloud and when she was finished with the letter, she got all excited, "Yay! A trip to the Zuki region might be a fun one!"
"I knew that you would be happy if you read that letter I gave you," Caroline said, "Are you going to get ready so that you can go to that region?"
May laughed, "Of course!" She ran to her bedroom, which was on the left side of the Gym's Arena and immediately startrf packing her stuff, "I can't wait till I get to that region! Anything's better than the Hoenn Region, with all the snow there and such."
Max was walking down the hallway when he saw May, which he then walked into the room, "What are you doing, May?"
May was easily annoyed by Max, even if it was an innocent question, "Packing up, what do you think?"
Max reached down and picked up the ticket that was on the floor, "Ohh...I see what you mean. You're going to the Zuki Region, aren't you?"
"What do you think? You could read, right?"
"Can I come too? I mean, if you get to go on vacation, then I think that your nice little brother should get a chance to go somewhere like that also," Max got on the floor and began begging, "I got back from the Hoenn League and the least I deserve is a vacation to a nice place like the Zuki Region . . . And I miss traveling with you, May.
May looked confused, "I thought that you were going to the Orre Region next- I mean, that place is always scorching hot, so you can go there if you want to warm up, Max. And wait . . . You would never miss me, Max! And whenever you and me are together, we always end up in an immature fight!"
Max false chuckled, "Oh yeah . . . The Orre region . . . That will be a nice place to vacation..." He said fakely, "You're a great big sister and I'm sure that I don't deserve to go along with you on an adventure like that! You're the perfect bigger sister, you know that, May? And my favorite . . . "
May knew that Max would never say something like that, "Yeah right . . . Anyways, don't you have anywhere to go right now? Like pack up your stuff so that you can go to the Orre region? And what do you mean your perfect bigger sister? You're always telling me what I can do better whenever you see me compete in some kind of competition, always being so pessimistic towards me . . . Yeah, and don't say that I'm your favorite sister because I'm your only sister, in case you forgot that, Max."
Max had already left the room without telling May that he did so.
"Max? Where did you go?" May looked surprised, "What's up with that boy? Oh yeah, this is Max we're talking about."
Max was walking in the Petalburg City Gym hallway muttering to himself, "I'll get to the Zuki Region wheather May likes it or not," Max's glasses suddenly shined, Japanese anime style, "She'll regret not inviting me when I beat her in a Pokemon Contest! But how can I get into the Zuki Region without having any tickets so that I can board the ship that will take me there? That's a big problem . . . I'll have to find some way around that if I want to get back at May for not letting me come with her to the Zuki Region willingly."
In Slateport City, where Drew was in one of his many mansions that he brought from using money that he earns from his popularity and by winning Pokemon Contests, was sunbathing outside on his own personal beach with his Roselia by his side, "It's another day of boredom, right Roselia? Look at me, I"m trying to sunbath while it's winter...Isn't it sad?"
"Rose," Roselia said, agreeing.
"Yep, wish that there was something better to do than stay out here freezing all day," Drew sighed, "Wish there was a Pokemon Contest around that I can enter but it looks like non of them are open at the time . . . You think that there would be at least one open during the winter so that coordinators that are bored like me can compete in them . . . "
Roselia nodded in agreement, and in disappointment, as it always loved to compete in Pokemon Contests.
*RING RING RING!* It was Drew's phone on the inside of his mansion, "I really don't want to get up right now," Drew closed his eyes, "Look at me...I say that I want to do anything and I don't even want to get up and pick up the phone . . . "
One of Drew's maids got the phone and handed it over to him, "Here's the phone, sir," She greeted him. The phone was actually a picture-phone, the size of half of a laptop screen.
"Thank you," Drew replied as he held the phone to his ear, "Who is it?"
The person on the phone line had May's voice . . .
On the other side of the phone line, it was actually Harley holding a Voice Changer next to his mouth, a device that could let you change your voice to another person that it recorded! And not only that, but Harley changed his clothes so that it looked identical to what May wore! "Hello, is this Drew?"
"Yes it is," Drew answered, "Are you May?"
"Why yes!" Fake May replied, "And do I have a surprise for you!"
"Why did you dye your hair purple?" The purple hair is what got Drew suspicious, "And your hair is longer than usual if I do say so myself."
"Purple is the new do!" Fake May explained, "And you know, as time passes, I grow! After all, I'm still a developing teenager. That's why you can see that my body is much hotter than usual anyways!"
"I can see that," Drew wasn't buying the act, "Anyways, what could be the surprise that you wanted to tell me?"
"I just got tickets so that you can go to the Zuki Region! May-I mean myself, am going to be heading over there!" Fake May informed, "And I heard that May- I mean me, and you are bored to death from being here in the freezing winter of the Hoenn region! I certainly wouldn't want you to die of boredom, so I decided to give you this extra ticket!"
"Why do you refer to yourself as the third person?" Drew asked suspiciously, "You're more mature than that May- I known you for a long time."
"Oh silly old me," Fake May scoffed, trying to cover up the mistakes that he made, "That's May for ya, I mean me, always making grammar mistakes! Anyways it's always summer there in the Zuki Region, and yes, that's right, Pokemon Contests galore! Don't forget that we're still rivals, Drew!"
Drew stood up excited, "Really?"
"Yes, and all you have to do is meet me here at Dewford Town so that we can take the S.S Atlanta to the Zuki Region, okay?"
"Sure," Drew answered, "See ya," He hung up the phone and put his clothes back on, "What am I thinking, wearing nothing on my chest on a winter day?"
Unlike May, Drew didn't pack up like May, instead, he just left with his Pokemon. When he got to the shore of Slateport City, he threw a PokeBall that revealed Flygon, a dragonfly Pokemon.
"Flygon, can I get you to fly me to Dewford Town?" Drew asked it, "So that we can get to the Zuki Region!"
"Fly!" Drew and Roselia got on Flygon's back and in no time, they made it to Dewford Town. Flygon was supposed to be weak to the snow, it being icy, since it was a Dragon and Ground type Pokemon, but it somehow resisted the snow with no problem.
When Flygon landed on the shore of Dewford Town, Drew and Roselia got off it, "Thanks Flygon, I owe ya one," Drew returned Flygon to its PokeBall, "I wonder where May is? She was the one that asked me to come here, after all," He began scouring the snowy beaches of Dewford Town, and saw May lying on the other side of the beach.
"H-H-Hi Drew," May stumbled as she talked, "Having a-a great time here in the c-cold?"
"What happened to you?" Drew asked, "Did you swim to get to Dewford Town or something?"
May began blushing, "Y-Yeah..."
Drew shook his head, "Tsk, tsk, tsk...I thought that you had a brain cell but now I think that I take that remark back. Your bad and nothing I can do about it."
"I-I just felt like s-swimming, okay?" May got back up, "Let's go find where this ship is."
"May, there's something suspicious going on," Drew stated, "Did you give me a phone call saying that you got tickets so that we can go to the Zuki Region together so that we can have fun there?"
"Of course not!" May exclaimed, "Did you send me a letter saying that you gave me two free tickets and that one of them was for you?" She took out the tickets that came with the letter and gave one to Drew, "This is the ticket so that you can take some ship to the Zuki Region, which is in the letter that I suspiciously received from you"
Drew looked serious, "I think that this is a trap that someone set for us so that they can do something bad to us once we're on the ship."
"Or maybe someone does want us to have fun," May always looked on the bright side, "Who knows, it could have been Max that set us up like this as a prank."
Drew relaxed, "I guess you're right- I have to stop being so serious and let loose once in a while. I mean, you never think before you do anything and look where you are right now, I guess that being absent-minded does have its good points at one time or another."
"I'm just going to pretend that I didn't hear what you just said to me, okay Drew?" May turned her head facing the ocean, "The ship's coming!" May exclained, "Wow...The thing looks so nice...So big and blue and majestic . . . It almost seems like a beautiful person coming to pick us up . . . "
"I see that you're not blind," Drew taunted, "The S.S Atlanta, I wonder how it's going to be while we're in there on the way to the Zuki Region?"
The ship made it to the Dewford Port, where May and Drew were at. It dropped anchor and the bridge that allowed the passengers to enter reached across. May and Drew walked on it to enter the ship. The other Pokemon trainers and coordinators that were waiting at the Dewford Port began entering the vessel as well.
May jumped, "I hope that they have some good food that we can eat there! Some cheeseburgers might be nice, and maybe some pizza might be great as well also! What do you think that we should eat when we get to the 'all you can eat buffet' there?"
Drew chuckled, "Food...Is that all that you can think about whenever we go someplace new? I mean, can't you at least think of the other amazing scenery that you might see on that ship?"
When they entered the ship, Max was behind the cargo and he snuck into the ship, and for some reason, Harley was standing right next to Max, "Thought you can get rid of me, eh May?" They both said in unison, "Well not once I get on that ship and make your life a living hell."
"Hey! What are you doing standing next to me?" They both were surprised.
Harley smirked, then came up with a plan, "You think that me and you can come up with a really cool plan that will make May super-surprised and the trip a blast?"
Max nodded, "Sure . . . "
Next time, on Pokemon: Episode 1 - Don't Rock The Ship!
Had fun reading that? The next show will be about when May and Drew are in the ship, as everything seems well, Harley, Max, and his newly hired minion Orc devise a plan to destroy the vessel that they are on right now . . .
But little does Max knows, he's going to regret being on Harley's side . . .
