I doubt anyone even knew I was gone. Here's another fic of mine, stemming from my long-running Trials series.
Continuity: takes place after the second epilogue of War of Legends.
Rating: PG(for random Pokemon swearing)
DISCLAIMER: I don't own Pokemon.
They've gone a year without a word to everyone. That's what Ash will have to endure as he stepped out into the corral.
"Okay, you guys, come over here, I've got great news for you!" he called.
The Pokemon, after hearing the voice of their trainer, quickly lined up in a semicircle around Ash. Whether they're glad to see him, or that they would be ready to tear him off with questions, one can't tell. The only Pokemon absent are the Four Stars, minus Pikachu, who everyone is too lazy or afraid to wake up.
"I'm really sorry for not being in contact with you guys for almost a year now. You see, I really want this, my honeymoon with May, to be time just for the two of us."
Bulbasaur(That didn't stop Pichu from coming along...)
Squirtle(Sssh... I want to hear the rest of this.)
Meganium(Both of you be quiet, will you?)
"Guys, guys," Ash spoke up, trying to silence them. "Anyway, like I've said, I've got great news.
"One, May and I decided to live independently of our in-laws. I am one step ahead of her, because I have already bought a decent estate near Newbark Town that would be the perfect place. I suggest that you guys prepare for a long trip, because tomorrow we'll all be moving to our new home."
Gengar crossed his arms. Gengar(What's so great about that? I kinda got used to this place. Plenty of shade...)
He wasn't the only one who voiced a negative opinion. Unfortunately, for them, Ash didn't understand their protest, and instead continued.
"As for the other good news, well-" He turned beet red and smiled sheepishly. The Pokemon, who were still murmuring amongst each other, suddenly snapped back at attention at the face of their trainer.
Corphish(Well, what are you waiting for? Out with this other news, Ash!)
It was at this moment that May stepped outside to follow her husband. Her right arm held Pichu, as usual, while the other was rubbing her stomach. "Ash, did you tell them already?" she asked, smiling.
"Just getting to that, May." Ash took a deep breath. "Everyone, May is pregnant. And, we are expecting our firstborn child in seven months' time."
Silence. A tumbleweed slicked past between the Pokemon group and the human couple. This was followed by "cricket sounds". Finally, after a few minutes, it sunk in.
Nearly all of Ash and May's feminine Pokemon fainted. But, they weren't the only ones. Even Torterra's knees could be seen buckling in excitement.
Swellow, out of insanity, pretended to be a Chatot. He was flying around in circles, shouting plenty of nonsense as a shock to the news.
And those were the tame reactions...
"Man, I knew they wouldn't take it well," Ash said, as he watched Gengar and Bulbasaur frantically fan a fainted Ambipom.
Corphish scuttled over to Pikachu. Corphish(Quick, they've got to know about this! Especially him...)
Pikachu nodded. Pikachu(Right. I'll pass the word...)
The Electric Mouse did pass the word like suggested. Minutes later, a shout similar to the initial reaction could be heard throughout the corral, even perhaps through all of Pallet Town! From the deep forest area, something shot out upwards. This was followed by two others who are racing at incredible speeds towards Ash!
'Uh-oh, this can't be good,' he thought.
All at the same time, the three huge Pokemon, including the one from the air, all tackled Ash all at the same time. "Ugh, you guys, get off me!"
Sceptile, Feraligatr and Charizard were all ecstatic at the news that their trainer is going to be a father. this was evidenced at the fast way they woke up as soon as they heard about it.
The other Pokemon only freed Ash from the Trio when his muffled shouts were completely dumb now.
Sceptile(Is it true? Is the Boss and Boss-ette going to have a baby?!)
Charizard, for the first time, was seen choking in tears. The Flame Pokemon clenched his fists in pride, and could be seen crying a waterfall. Charizard(Ash, I'm so- So- PROUD! In fact, I am so proud that I- I-)
Without another word, Charizard flew back into the air again. May, sensing what's about to happen, stepped a few feet from Ash. Sure enough, Charizard released all his emotions through the only way he knows to express them: a Flamethrower to Ash.
Ash coughd a puff of smoke, as usual, and sighed. "What was that for now, Charizard?" he asked incredulously.
Meowth, who just turned up, provided a translation. "That's simple, Twerp. He was just proposing a toast."
Meanwhile, Feraligatr could be seen hunched to one side, whispering to himself. His mate approached him uneasily. Meganium(What are you doing now?)
Feraligatr(Boss-ling, Boss-ini, Boss- er, ah- Aw, shucks, I ran out of suffixes...)
Hearing the names, Sceptile neared him as well, and slapped him at the back of the head. Sceptile(Hey, calling the Boss as Boss is my line. Get yours!)
"Well, they sure took it lightly," May joked, as she helped her husband up.
"You think?" Ash retorted.
"Well, I know someone who will be happy about having a new playmate," May said, nodding to Pichu in her arms. "Right, Pichu?"
Pichu nodded enthusiastically. Feraligatr(But, don't you suppose he would get jealous?)
Charizard(Hey, yeah, he won't be the apple of Ash and May's eye anymore.)
This earned them a stare from Pichu that quickly made the other Pokemon take a step backwards from the Trio. Sure enough, they received a powerful Discharge from the offended baby. The attack had all three sprawled on their backs next to each other.
The Trio raised a finger up in defeat as they spoke. Charizard(Super-)
Sceptile(I'm supposed to be resistant!)
Ash sweatdropped. "Yup, they really did take it well..."
END of my insane ficlet. Again, I leave the mesage DO NOT ENJOY. XP
