Notes: This is my first ever shipping fic, i have never been good with description but i try my best
Thunderstorms let out strong downpours of rain throughout the region of Kanto. Citizens of the main cities fled indoors, citizens of the small mountain side towns fled to other, safer towns. The island of Cinnabar was being evacuated from fear of giant waves that could sink the island within days or even hours. The labs researched would have had to be abandoned and many researchers refused to leave Cinnabar without completing one final project. With the towns people gone apart from the researchers they continued to work, until the prediction of the tidal wave sunk the island. All that remained was the tip of the volcano just rearing the top out of the sea. The Pokémon living on the island were most likely inside the volcano as they were practically all fire types. Seafoam Island’s wild Pokémon remained inside the cave. Not long before the thunderstorm citizens of the nearby town of Fuchsia told reporters that they had seen a bright blue light flying out of Seafoam Island and flying off into the distance. The same story had been told by people from Cerulean city as a yellow light from the power plant and people from Vermillion of a red light coming from One Island in the Sevii Islands. Professors Oak of Pallet town and Elm of Newbark town had gotten together to discuss matters. Over in Johto, where Elm came from, he told Oak of people from Cianwood city evacuating after seeing a silver light emerge from the Whirl Islands and Ecruteak citizens told of a rainbow light coming from the Tin Tower. These facts of the 5 lights astounded the two professors.
A week after their meeting Cianwood in Johto sunk like Cinnabar had done. They next contacted Professor Birch in Hoenn. From what he told them Hoenn was unharmed but the odd disappearance of rain was the only off occurrence. The next work uttered by Professor Oak could very well have explained the happenings. “Kyogre.” Was the word he uttered. Kyogre was a legendary Pokémon of Hoenn that was said to control the seas and could cause massive thunderstorms and flood, the same as what was happening in both Kanto and Johto. Oak called upon the strongest trainers he knew of, Ash Ketchum from his home town of Pallet and the strongest of the local frontier brains Brandon. Ash was at home simply waiting for an announcement of the next Pokémon league so he happily accepted to try and find what was going on, Brandon however simply told that he was busy out in Shinou and that if need be to simply give him a call to borrow his legendary golems, Regirock, Regice and Registeel.
A few days had passed since Oak made his calls and Elm had returned to Johto. Ash had joined with Oak in the lab to help out anyway he could. “Professor?” Ash asked. “If Brandon isn’t able to come...” He began. “Why not check on any other frontier brains?” Oak looked at him with a questionable glance. Ash was sat on a nearby brown couch. His messy black hair was no longer being covered by a hat as he used to do.
“Why do you have someone in mind? I would have thought that if you wanted to journey, even if this is only a simple task of research that you would pick your friends. The frontier brains barely know you Ash.”
“Well there is one brain I have in mind. If it’s Kyogre that’s at large, we need someone who is good at understanding Pokémon. Anabel of the Battle Tower is someone who can do that. When I first met her, after being chased by a swarm of Beedrill.” Ash nervously put a hand on the back of his head whilst his little yellow mouse companion, Pikachu, laughed nervously. “Well she showed up and calmed the Beedrill and it just left. We got to introducing ourselves by a lake but a Gyarados spoilt it. Once again she calmed the Gyarados. This shocked me the most as it went completely calm.”
“Wow that is amazing. A calm Gyarados. A very rare sight.” Oak joked. “Well to me it sounds like this Anabel could be a good companion to have in this mission. All your Pokémon are here and rested up for you to take any you want to take. My advice would be to visit Anabel yourself.”
“Why don’t you just call her yourself? You did with me and Brandon.” Ash pondered.
“Well, its more gentlemen like to...propose to a lady in person.” Oak began to burst out laughing. Ash just stared clueless. Oak stopped laughing to see Ash’s Pikachu had already done a runner. “Now may I ask where Pikachu has gone?”
“He went outside I think to go play with the Pokémon.”
“Well for your sakes he better not be at my ketchup bottles again.” Oak sternly spoke of Pikachu’s obsession over ketchup. “Well I guess I better get back to work. You can go outside and feed the Pokémon with Tracey. He should be getting back from the Sevii Islands soon with sketches of the lights.” Ash turned around and left after listening to what Oak had to say.
Outside the rain was still thundering down. Luckily Oak has recently installed a new cover that spread across the entire field. When opened out small light where attached to the roof to give the feeling of when it was day and when it was night as they would be turned off. Ash’s Pokémon ran up to him as he stepped outside. First of all was his purple slime Pokémon Muk who body slammed him to the ground. He felt the weight lifted as his small green dinosaur like Pokémon with a green bulb on its back pushed it off with its vines that shot out of the bulb. A larger yellow skinned Pokémon ran over and knocked him to the ground again nuzzling Ash’s face. The large flower on its head carried another of Ash’s Pokémon, Cyndaquil. The small fire mouse Pokémon looked as if it was always sleeping as it had closed eyes. The fire on its back ignited upon sight of Ash.
“Bayleef, Cyndaquil!” A male voice shouted. Ash couldn’t see him past Bayleef’s face. Bayleef soon moved as Cyndaquil jumped off Ash. He stood up to see another male around his age with a large backpack on. A green head band could be seen through his thick hair. “So Ash glad to see me?” The boy asked smiling.
“Yeah Tracey, great to see you again.” Ash smiled holding out his hand. Tracey shook it within an instance. “So you catch any new Pokémon on the Sevii islands?”
“All I caught was this.” Tracey said throwing a pokeball into the air. It released an orange otter like Pokémon. It has two tails which ended in a sandy colour. An odd yellow strip seemed to run around the back of its neck like a scarf. “Apart from that my Pokémon evolved.” Tracey threw another three pokeballs revealing a large blue ball like Pokémon with long rabbit like ears. On the end of its thin black tail was a blue ball. Besides it stood a large red mantis shaped Pokémon. On the sides of its pincer like claws were a yellow spot surrounding a black spot giving the impression of his claws having eyes. Finally was a large purple moth, its light blue eyes seemed eerily glaring.
“Wow so you caught a Floatzel and all your Pokémon evolved. What happened?”
“They were having a tournament on the island and I decided to enter. The grand prize winner was awarded a picture of Zapdos, Articuno, Moltres, Ho-oh and Lugia.”
“You could have called and i could have entered.”
“Yeah, but these guys were amateurs. You could have creamed them easily.”
“So where’s the picture then?”
“Ok fine I didn’t call you because I wanted to win and with you around I couldn’t have won. Plus I lost the final round anyway. But the winner was nice enough and let me sketch the Pokémon from the picture. Plus from what I found out it was these Pokémon seen to be fleeing the places. I’m going to go show the sketches to Professor Oak and then I’ll help you feed the Pokémon.” Tracey explained before running inside. His soaking wet coat was thrown on the floor outside.
Ash followed inside but remained in the kitchen as he grabbed the bowls of Pokémon food for his Pokémon. His electric companion had already raided the fridge and was already chowing down. “Pikachu.” Ash sighed. “You got to stop eating Professor Oak’s ketchup.”
“That little rat had better not be eating that ketchup or my Dragonite will have something to say.” Pikachu looked angrily at the door as Oak spoke. He dropped the ketchup and ran to Oak. The next thing you could hear was Oak screaming in pain. Pikachu sprinted back to Ash and dived into his backpack winking at Ash who ran over and closed the back as Oak rushed in with his hair black from an electric shock.
“Where’s that little rat Pikachu of yours!” He demanded.
“I don’t know.” Ash shrugged as Oak stormed out. After he left Ash let Pikachu out as they had a laughing fit on the floor. “That was a good one buddy.” Ash complimented his friend.
