Meowth kept shooting uneasy glances at May. He knows how much the events would hurt May, who was the one who would do anything to help her friend. Pichu, on the other hand, kept crawling outside, towards its idol, Charizard. The latter, who was standing guard so no other Charizard would see them, was slightly annoyed. Every time Pichu walked up to him, Charizard gently pushed Pichu back into the cave with a swipe of his tail.
Charizard's plan? He has to wait until it is dark, when most of the Charizard are asleep. Then he will fly May, Pichu and Meowth to the entrance to the Valley. There, he will notify Lisa, who can take them to safety.
May and Meowth both fell asleep waiting for nightfall. Charizard woke them up in a snap, and he took them out of the crevice. But first, of course, he looked around to make sure the coast is clear. Charizard(Get on...)
His charges got on his back. With a silent swoosh of his wings, Charizard takes off. He flew low over the canyon, heading northwards. May looked around, getting a better view of the surroundings.
Multiple Zard were dotted here and there, at the faces of the cliffs around them. Just as their own Charizard said, they were all asleep. May was uneasy, as, any moment, the Pokemon will awaken, and they will start chasing them again.
All seems safe for them, until May sensed stirring from one Charizard, then another. Charizard growled low, cursing his bad timing. He flapped his wings harder, to make them go faster, but wrong move, as it alerted more Charizard!
The hostile Pokemon are enraged that one of their own kind is helping an intruder. They started their chase on their traitor, and his passengers. This brought fear into May's heart, not because of the danger they were in, but the danger Charizard is putting himself into for them.
Ash's Charizard is notably the fastest in the Valley, but that doesn't mean the other Zards are gaining on them. May and Meowth hugged Charizard's back harder as he sped in the direction of the Valley's entrance, which, to them, is like a million miles still!
Suddenly, their flight path is blocked by a Charizard who came from the opposite direction! Ash's Charizard braked so suddenly, that May and Meowth were reeled slightly forward. Fortunately, they didn't fall off, but, in the confusion, Ash's hat fell to the ground.
Pichu tried going after it, but Meowth held it by the tail so it won't. Charizard scowled, seeing themselves surrounded. He slowly landed on the ground, and motioned for his passengers to get off.
"Oh, man," Meowth groaned. "How are we going to get out of this?"
Charizard took his charges right behind him as they were backed against a cliff wall. He scowled at the other advancing Zard. Charizard(I hope you guys know how to get out of here into thin air, 'cause that may be the only way for you to escape...)
These words brightened up Meowth's face. 'Of course!' "Twerpette, the G. S. Ball! It took us here, and it will get us out!"
May quickly rummaged in her pockets, and took out the Pokeball. Charizard stared curiously at it, confused as to what Meowth meant. Just as she took out the G. S. Ball, it started to glow again.
"Yes, it's working!" Meowth exclaimed. "We're outta here!"
"Wait!" May suddenly shouted, shielding her eyes from the glaring lights of the G. S. Ball. She handed it, and Pichu, to Meowth, then turned to Ash's Charizard. "You have to come with us, Charizard!"
"No, twerp-UMMPH!" May gagged Meowth with her free hand as she continued.
"Charizard, you have to come with us," she repeated. "Ash needs you, really bad. You're the only one left that can help him!"
Charizard(I can't go. I have some things to take care of here. I'll be there for Ash when-)
Without thinking, Meowth interrupted him. "Listen, you won't be able to stay any longer- Ooops... Shouldn't have said that!"
For the first time, Charizard turned away from his kin, to face Meowth. Charizard(What do you mean?)
It was like May understood Charizard's words. "Charizard... You're going to... Die..." Charizard turned to her, puzzled. "We came from the future, Charizard, and there you were dead... Protecting an intruder... Me and Meowth..."
Charizard was stunned. Meowth sighed. "Might as well, now that you know everything. The twerpette's right. You are going to die, which, I presume, is after we leave on this," he shortly finished, holding out the G. S. Ball. It is vibrating uncontrollably in his grasp.
The capture mechanism glowed, and it projected a beam against the wall behind them. From the beam,a large black-hole like thingamajig appeared. It's sweeping them like a vacuum, but May held onto Charizard. "Please!" May insisted, nearly in tears. "You have to come with us!"
Charizard stared into May's eyes for a second, before turning away to face the other Zard. Charizard(I can't... I can't leave...)
"Why not?" Meowth spoke up, holding May's hand, trying to pull her into the wormhole. On his other hand is a flying(due to the wormhole, weightless) Pichu clinging, in turn, to the G. S. Ball.
Charizard(I have a family here. I can't leave them now that the other Zard here think of me a traitor...)
"Then we should take them with- Oh, wait, I don't think we have enough time! Yeeeowch!" Meowth shouted. May kept on holding to Charizard, while the vacuum of the wormhole is now pulling Meowth. He's beginning to feel like a rope at a tug-of-war.
Charizard closed his eyes, then he put a hand to May's, which was holding him. With one grip, he made May let go, much to the latter's worst fear. Charizard(Tell Ash... Tell Ash that I promise I'll always be there for him... And this time, I promise you, too...)
"NO!" May shrieked, but it was too late. The wormhole sucked her and Meowth back to present time, leaving the doomed Pokemon behind. But as he watched the wormhole disappear little by little, he saw Ash's hat fly past him going into the wormhole as well. Charizard grabbed it, and held it hard, not letting go. Then he turned to the other Charizard.
Zard#1(What have you done?! You brought humans to this Valley?! That is unacceptable!)
Charizard(What makes you think that that human I helped was no different from the ones who broke in before?!)
Zard#2(That doesn't matter. Humans are no different from one another...)
Charizard snorted. Charizard(That's what you get for living in this Valley for too long! Humans are not all the same! Yes, there are evil humans who care only for themselves, but there is still some good in them left. As a matter of fact, I know two certain bad humans that have since turned good.)
The largest Zard in the group, is the most violent, yet he seems to be the leader. Zard#3(That's enough. We took you in as a member of our kind. And now you turn that away just to protect humans? You are a disgrace!)
Charizard flexed his muscles, and scowled at the speaker. Charizard(Look who's talking. For someone who grew up in the wild, it's highly likely that you have that view of humans.)
Zard#3(HOW DARE YOU! You filthy HALFBREED!)
These last words are the last straw, infuriating Ash's Charizard. He doesn't deny it, but he doesn't like being called that way, either. The last thing we see is an angry Charizard flying straight towards the others, not knowing if he'll survive or not.
