Hiya everyone! I'm xXPorygonXx, and this is my first ever fic. Please remember to follow all forum rules; I don't want anyone to get in trouble. This story starts off at the Hoenn Pokemon League, during the Quarterfinals. Enjoy What's the line?-An AAML story.
Chapter 1: A Hard Match; Let the Quarterfinals commence!
"Welcome everyone, to the quarterfinals of this years Hoenn region League!" an announcer yelled to a jam packed stadium. The people in the audience had come from as close as Mossdeep, and in the case of two teens, as far away as Kanto.
"No since in delaying the start, people! Our green box Trainer is a familiar face here at Evergrande Stadium, as she was once a member of the Elite Four. Please give a warm round of applause to Thilini of Rustboro City!"
Lights flashed down on a emerald green box, whose inhabitant waved shyly at the crowd. She was wearing a white shirt that had a green and blue graffiti style PokeBall on it. Her long black hair, tied back by a ribbon, helped show the audience the nervousness on her face. Thilini's kind brown eyes, covered by a pair of glasses, looked across the field where her opponent was talking to his friends.
"She sounds pretty tough, Ash. You best be careful not to get overconfident," a young girl told Thilini's opponent. The girl was May, one of Ash's travelling companions. Her long brown hair flowed in the wind as she gazed at Ash.
"Yeah Ash, our dad met her a few years ago. She's an excellant strategist," May's brother Max remarked.
"Don't worry guys, I'm pretty sure this Thilini will be an easy victory," Ash said. Ash had started his own journey three years ago, and had met many Pokemon. His untidy black hair was covered by a goofy hat, and his black shirt was covered by a sleeveless blue hoodie. A Pikachu stood on Ash's head, looking just as confident as his Trainer.
"What about you Brock, any advice for me?" Ash asked one of his oldest friends. Brock had once led a Gym, eventually going along with Ash on his journey. Ash had quickly learned Brock had a weakness for the ladies, and today wasn't any acception....
"My heart is breaking in half!" he wailed loudly, causing everyone to sweatdrop. "My love stands over there," he pointed at Thilini, "And I'm over here! Ash! If you beat her..." he growled, fire blazing in his eyes, "I WILL KILL YOU!!" This last part was screamed so loud, that people across the stadium could hear him.
"Um..alright then.." Ash mumbled, droping down to his box so the match could start.
"Next, our red box Trainer! He hails from the town of Pallet, all the way from Kanto. He's one of the most talented Trainers we've seen in a while, folks. Give it up for Ash Ketchum!"
Ash waved at his friends, as Pikachu struck various poses.
"Okay Ash, send out your first Pokemon please......"
Meanwhile, in the Gym of Cerulean City, an old friend of Ash's collapsed onto her bed wearily. She grabbed a bottle of Advil and popped some in her mouth.
"Why did I leave Ash to come here?" Misty Waterflower asked herself. Her normally happy(and violent!) pesonality had died down once she left Ash and Brock.
"If you want Misty, I can, like, take over for a while," Misty's older sister said, walking in to the room. Lily and Misty's older sisters Daisy and Violet had been the original Gym Leaders, until they left for a round the world trip.
"No way, Lily! If I left you in charge, there wouldn't be any badges left!" Misty yelled at Lily.
"That, like, so totally hurts, Misty!" Lily squealed.
"Whatever." he phone rang, startling Misty. She picked it up. "Hello? Oh, hi Mrs. Ketchum! What? Ash's match has started? Thanks, I'll watch, bye!" Misty hung up the phone and raced off to the living room.
Ash pulled out a PokeBall and threw it hard into the arena. The Ball opened to reveal a lobster like Pokemon called Corphish.
"Corphish Cor Cor Phish!" it said, waving it's claws.
Thilini also threw her ball, revealing a Plusle.
A referee lowered his flags. "Begin!"
Corphish opened it's claws and let loose a barrage of multicolored bubbles that flew towards Plusle.
"Plusi, stand your ground," Thilini said,watching as the bubbles drew closer. Plusi let out a cry as the bubbles came in contact with her.
"Plusi, use Mirror Coat!
Ash swore under his breath as Plusi stood up, glowing a deep gold. With a loud cry of it's name, it shot a powerful beam of gold energy at Corphish. As the beam came closer, Ash got an idea.
Corphish crossed his claws, which were glowing a shiny green. Just as the beam was about to strike, Corphish extended it's claws, creating a shimmering green shield. The energy of the Mirror Coat hit the Protect, creating a giant explosion. Thilini instantly took advantage of the explosion.
Plusi got close to the ground, scratching lightly. With a loud squeal, it started to burrow.
After the dust died down, Corphish was seen lokking around rather stupidly for Plusi. A loud rumble was heard, and Plusi shot out of the earth, ramming Corphish with it's body. Corphish flew up in the air, only to come down and hit the arena. Hard.
Ash looked worriedly at Corphish. "Corphish, get up!" Groaning slightly, Corphish stood up, glaring at Plusi.
"Good Corphish, now Vicegrip!"
Corphish quickly reached out and grabbed Plusi with one of it's claws. Plusi let out a scream of pain as Corphish continued to pinch it.
CRACK! Corphish's eyes grew wide as Plusi's body cracked in half. Corphish was stuned at what it thought it had done. It didn't know that the 'Plusi' it destoyed was mearly a replica.
"Now Plusi, Thunderbolt!"
Corphish turned to see Plusi leaning against him. Plusi grinned cheeckily and shocked Corphish with a lot of electricity. Corphish didn't even have time to use a defensive ability, it was instantly knocked out.
Ash sighed as he returned his fallen partner. "Good job buddy," he thought as he reattached his partner to his belt. "You did good." Ash looked up, a new PokeBall in his hand. "Sceptile, go!" A large green lizard burst onto the field. It's large yellow eyes stared at Plusi. Sceptile stood at least seven or eight times taller than Plusi.
"Sceptile, Quick Attack!"
Sceptile began moving at impossible speeds toward what was know a Plusi substitute. Like before, the replica broke. Unlike last time, Plusi wasn't able to get away quickly. It stood panting five feet to the left of Sceptile.
"Plusi is getting tired," Thilini thought as Sceptile slowly stood up. "I have to end this now!"
"Sceptile, create a Leaf Blade and sink it into the ground!"
Plusi let out a burst of electricity as the leaves on Sceptiles arm grew and elongated. With a grunt, Sceptile sank it's blade into the ground, right before the Thunderbolt hit. A loud bbom was heard, along with Ash yelling "Sceptile! Quick Attack!" Sceptile's speedy form was seen cutting through the dust, along with Plusi's body. When the smoke cleared, only Sceptile was still conscious.
"Plusi wasn't able to take much more anyway. Return!" Thilini called, returning Plusi and selecting another PokeBall. With a loud cry of "Let's go!" she threw the ball into the arena, revealing....
Sorry to end on a cliffhanger, guys. I have to go to my doctor's office; I'm not feeling too well. xXPorygonXx, out for now!
P.S. Expect Chap. 2 tommorrow.
