hope a double post in this one instance is okay. I remember years ago lurking here people would whine about it. I personally feel this chapters is not as good as the first one. I tried to change up the formula. Ash had some developing moments in the first chapter, here we see that his strategies he sometimes improvises may not work out as he has planned. I tried to put some humor into this. Please tell me guys what you think. I also made it where Ash is not "completely" incompetent when it comes to romantic love. I can't wait to write next chapter tomorrow because there will be more shippiness in it.
The Legend of May an Ash to the Past
Ash was thankful to leave the Pyramid of Power while in the Dark World. He felt a very sinister aura while there and did not want to tempt whatever it was to reach him now. After leaping off the Pyramid he surveyed the land. The moat(if you could even call it that) wrapped around most of the Pyramid of Power. It gave off a stench to it due to the water not flowing, and it was very polluted.
Off in the distance he saw trees in a smoky greyish green color. Not only that but they had creepy faces on them. Ash shuddered to think what it would be like to be trapped in the Dark World living as a tree. As Ash looked further down he saw two Conkledurr roaming around the Pyramid. They were each 8 feet in height. Even though they were in the distance Ash could feel a faint tremor wherever they patrolled.
To think that mother and father destroyed many of these monsters while on “vacation” here. That has to be a testament to their combat prowess. Ash thought amazed to himself. He then decided to climb up a normal tree(thankfully with no eyeballs) and sniped the two Conkledurrs in the distance. To make sure they did not spot him. Ash would wear the Magical Cape. After 6 hits each he laughed when he saw the Conkledurrs enraged take each other out.
I wish May was here, she would get a kick out of this. As fun as this is I need to get a move on and find the other maidens.
After travelling east, Ash fought many creatures in the way. Giant flowers turned out to be sentient trying to eat him(they are Victrebel’s in this fic). He encountered flying Tentacool that drop explosive flammable sludge bomb goo, most surprising of all was when he encountered a talking Aipom!
“I will lead you the way to the Temple of Darkness for 50 rupees. Ei Ei”
“No thanks I can see it in the distance.”
“Grr I meant lead you through the Maze. Dimwit.”
For insulting Ash’s intelligence, Ash took out his Fire Rod firing(pun intended) a flame stream at the forest Maze burning it down. Aipom’s mouth hit the ground and not wanting to get anymore on Ash’s bad side decided to open the Palace of Darkness to the hero free of charge and left him alone. (Author’s note, that little Monkey in the game deserved it, seriously charging 100 Rupees to enter a temple! What the heck! Monkeys don’t need money in the dark world seriously! )
Ash smiled approvingly(LIKE A BOSS) and headed inside.
While most of the dungeon was uneventful(Author’s note: I am going to skipping most dungeons and what happens, They are fun to play in Zelda but are boring to write out). However in one room, Ash noted a certain tile on the wall. Normally Ash would ignore it because it would usually be Ralamuel giving him obvious advice or complaining about his back aches. Ash took a chance and channeled his energy into it.
“Hello is anyone there?” Ash was certainly in for a surprise at who answered
“A..A.Ash” a feminine voice said shyly and weakly, “is that you?” Her voice strengthened up a little.
“Princess May! Boy am I glad to see you!” Ash exclaimed excitedly but Ash heard her giggling in response
“Hey! What’s so funny!” Ash said slightly annoyed
“You said you were glad to see me but you can’t see me at the moment” May continued to giggle to herself.
Ash blushed in embarrassment at the realization of his goof. He nervously laughed at his mistake
After May stifled her giggling, she continued, “It’s good to hear you again Ash, I thought I sensed your presence faintly in this world and I am glad that wasn’t me imagining things or being deceived. ”
“Same here Princess, well about getting to hear you again. You know I ain’t good at the sensing stuff. Ralamuel told me you and the maidens were still alive. how are feeling, are you hurt?” Ash asked her?
“ Hee hee, yeah I know, it was always funny sneaking up on you in the castle scaring you when you least expected it. I am not hurt physically anymore, just exhausted from a lack of energy. How did your battle with Hargnahim go?”
Ash told her the recollected events after she was “sacrificed”. She took the news hard that Haragahnim killed her father. Ash comforted her telling her that when they get the Triforce they can undo all of what he did. She cheered up believing with all her might that Ash would succeed. He then told her about the battle he and the sorcerer had.
“Wow, Ash that was amazing! You sure gave that wizard a sound smashing didn’t you? I am also glad you find my gift useful. Because of the retelling of your heroics if I was with you right now I would give you…” she trailed off .
“Give me what?” Ash inquiried, “ Please May, I’m dying to know!”
May grinned slyly to herself, she was thankful Ash couldn’t see her, she was blushing a deep shade of crimson, “Sorry Ash but that is for me to know and for you to find out!”
Groaning Ash responded “Come on May! You already know and I can find out if you just spill it already”
May was shocked at Ash’s cunning in finding a loophole, however she wasn’t know for her wisdom for nothing. “Yes Ash, but it is a surprise. You will find out about your surprise later.” (Author’s note: It is not sex. May may not[pun intended] have an entirely innocent mind but her motives are pure. Even if May were willing to do that, Ash would not do that out of respect for May (and not wanting to be castrated by King Norman) Since Zelda takes place in a medieval cultural setting sex doesn’t happen til Marriage Plus in this fanfic they are 13.)
Ash groaned at the Princess and her wise comeback and choice of words. Ash knew he was getting nowhere so he decided to change the subject. “So where are you at right now?”
“Hmm, I believe I am at turtle rock, which is located on Death Mountain. Unfortunately, Drewnondorf put a barrier here so you won’t be able to come here until you rescue the 6 maidens first.”
“Don’t worry May, I will be there to rescue you before you know it!”
“I know you will Ash, just don’t get too hotheaded or reckless. Promise me?”
“Yes May, I promise.”
“Thanks Ash, I will be waiting patiently for you... my hero” May said the last two words calmly and in an angelic soft tone. It gave Ash a warm tingly feeling inside.
After navigating the rest of the Palace, Ash managed to make it lair of the boss. Standing on all fours before him was a masked Rhyperior with a spike ended tail. The creature roared at its intruder and immediately spit out three fire balls. Ash got out his Ice Rod and froze the three fire balls into cooled Rock. Rhyperior was not pleased and swung his tail smacking Ash into the eastern wall of the room.
In retaliation, Ash threw 5 bombs at the creature and shot an arrow at them making them explode simultaneously. With the mask broken off Rhyperior was furious and started charging at Ash in the cramped room. Ash running to avoid being smacked in the tail, burnt and being trampled had to act quick. An idea came upon him and he pulled out his ice Rod freezing the path Rhyperior was chasing him. Rhyperior immediately lost its tracking and crashed into the wall and landed sideways. Ash start slashing the creatures glowing green gem on its forehead repeatedly.
The monster roared in pain and headbutted Ash thankfully he had his shield in front of him to take the hit. Unfortunately Ash smacked into the wall again. Because Ash was dizzy he pulled out his magical cape until he got his balance back which only took a few moments. This confused Rhyperior for a few moments before Ash snipped it’s green gem with an arrow. Stunned, Ash leapt into the air performing his Spin Attack defeating the boss. It exploded into a harmless smoke.
A blue crystal materialized from the ceiling and fell down. Ash caught it and inside was light complected tomboyish girl with Red hair wearing a yellow dress. Ash inwardly groaned knowing how this was going to go.
“Seriously, you’re the chosen hero!? Please say it ain’t so because if so this is a nightmare.”
“Well excuuuuse me, Misty. Sorry I am not your precious Gary now am I? I think a thank you is in order.”
“At least he is a soldier in training, unlike you, peasant.”
“I was trained by Silver and how does it feel that this amateur peasant rescued you? Hmm.” Check and mate ash thought to himself smugly.
Ash did not hate Misty but he at best he tolerated her. She was very arrogant and full of herself because her dad is the minister to King Norman. She also did not think Ash and his family was worthy of the title knight. After all, if his dad was so skilled why did he go missing? Next off to her, Gary was the complete deal when it came to a man. He was part of nobility, he was also smart, strong, handsome, charming, and most of all romantic.
To her Ash was just some backwashed country bumpkin who was tainting the castle with his uncouth immaturity and stupidity. She always tried to boss him to do chores because of her social standing, however Ash would outsmart her and May would end up bossing her around to do the chores instead. She would complain to her dad to talk to Norman about it, but Norman loved his sweet precious Princess May and would ignore the request altogether. This irritated her to no end!
After all soldiers are just mindless drones, to willing accept any order the nobles give them without question. Almost anyone can apply to be a soldier. So very few soldiers were part of nobility. You were not supposed to move yourself into nobility! That's just taboo. Not only that, but Kings and princesses are obligated to take their advice seriously or ask other advisors for an alternative solution, not flat out ignore them and make up their own decisions on the fly.
It did not help matters that Ash was really close with May. She was jealous that he was “winning” in his befriending May while Gary did not seem interested in her at all. He was content in just remaining formal acquaintance. In a way, she was jealous of Ash. He turned the workings of the world upside down! He actually had a legit shot at becoming King of Hyrule! She would someday have to serve under a peasant turned King! The horror!
“Grrr, enough Ash, at least he is nobility unlike you,” she sighed, “Thank you for saving me” She said the last part as sourly as possible.
Ash knew that was the best he was going to get out of this now. He got his licks in anyway.
“It was pleasure my lady” Ash responded sourly in kind. “May you please mark the locations of the other maidens on my map?”
Misty sighed in relief and marked the locations of the other maidens on Ash’s map. She was glad she was done having to deal with Ash for the time being. He left the dungeon and looked at his map. He noticed she did not label turtle rock or indicate May was there.
“Oh well, May and I are just going to have to payback Misty for her omission later.” He snickered devilishly at the possible ideas he and May would come up with. In their respective lairs, Princess May and Misty sneezed.
Ash went on his way to Swamp Palace, but after a temporary impasse, he left, used the Magic Mirror to return to the Light World. He was outside swamp Palace. He entered inside there and had a strong desire to pull the switch. After doing so, he returned back to Swamp Palace. The impasse was gone and Ash was free to proceed. Ash was excited that this was a water themed area. He though he would have a relaxing swim in between puzzles and enemy battling. How wrong he was!
He dreaded any room that had water in it. This was because he would be would see these cute water dropped shaped creatures the size of his head come at him(these are Castform in rain form) and they would ram into him. In deeper water even on land, these Remoraid would home in on him and try to bite him. Ash was getting tired of being a fish toy and fish food and used his Ether Medallion to flash freeze the monsters.
“Where’s your god now! Huh, yeah that’s right, nowhere cuz I own you!” Ash taunted them. He started to see the Ice quake and unfreeze, so rather than take his chances he went into the next room. He was glad he did because he opened up the large treasure chest. He then held out the item in front of him exclaiming, “Alright, I got a hookshot!” Out of nowhere Ash though her heard Ralamuel groaning and muttering “wrong series!” Ash did not know if he was hearing things or going crazy from being in the palace for too long. Before being creeped out overthinking it and not wanting to know Ash decided to go to the next room.
The hookshot made dealing with those water “things” much easier. Ash would fire it a block or chest across the room and the hookshot would latch onto the object and pull him over to it. He then tested it on a Lanturn and it would latch onto it and pull it over to him. Ash swung the Master Sword fiercely knocking it against the wall.
Man this thing is handy! What other things could this be used for? Ash started fantasizing about other uses for the hookshot.
It is a hot summer day at Hyrule Castle. Ash and May are in the royal pool. Ash and May are reclining on a soft floating tanning chair that has room for both to recline on. May is to Ash's right laying beside him. May pulls up her sunhat looking up to Ash.
"Oh Ash" May cooed, "could you be a hero and get me some delicious fruit. I will share it with you my darling"
"Sure anything for you Princess" Ash pulled out the hookshot from the hoister on the bottom of the left side arm of the chair.
"Ash, what are you doing? Aren't you going to get up and go get those fruit for me?" May asked this in a baffled manner.
"My beautiful Princess May, you know my every desire is to please you and to do it with haste! Would you rather be satisfied now, or later?
May put her finger on her chin. "I suppose that it would be better to be satisfied now. Because this way we can keep cuddling next to each other enjoying the wonderful summer sun!"
"Exactly my bright and intelligent May! Now do you see that fruit cart over there with all those sweet oranges, lemons, strawberries, pineapples, and grapes?" May nodded. "What would you say to me if I told you I get 1 of each of those and bring them to you without leaving this spot?"
"I would say you that you have lost your mind!" May made a giggle at the end of that statement.
"Well May, watch and observe!" Ash pointed the hookshot that at the fruit cart that was 30 feet from their current location. He fired it 5 times. One for each fruit. The hookshot clipped and zipped every fruit that May wanted back seamlessly. May cuddle up closer to Ash as they were about to enjoy their fruit feast.
"Now who has lost their mind?"
May chuckled at that remark, "Oh Ash"
May rested her head on Ash's ripped pecs. Ash then wrapped his huge muscled right arm gently around May's midsection as he stretched his ripped left arm out before laying it down on his left side besides his six pack. May not only fed herself the "haul" of fruit the had but she then started feeding Ash as well.
(end of flashbacK)
"Yeah, that's more like it!" Ash spoke gently to himself while he was fantasizing. "Wait, WHAT!, I mean I understand the hookshot would be great at retrieving items far away. Especially, since you don't want to walk up to them and grab them, but where did THAT come from?" Ash shook his head in disbelief. "Either this watery environment is getting to me or May's romance novels she keeps telling me about are rubbing off on me."
Back at Turtle Rock May sneezed again. "Gosh, I hope I am not coming down with a cold at a time like this."
He eventually made it to this boss chamber. Ash wanted this battle finished as soon as possible. When he arrived he saw a Tentacool in the center of the room being mostly covered by levitating Tentacool on all sides. He used his hand hookshot to pull in and smach the tentacool with his sword. The were all going down in one hit. He noticed the Tentacool begin to stay station and building up energy. Using the hookshot he aimed for a block in the corner of the room and after the hookshot connected to it, it zipped Ash safely out of harm’s way.
Not much longer the boss was defeated. After all the Tentacool were gone and all the Tentacruel did was move rapidly around the move trying to body slam Ash repeatedly. A crystal materialized up in the ceiling and came down. Ash caught it and it revealed a girl wearing an orange dress with Pinkish crimson hair inside the crystal.
Ash recognized that she was Solidad one of May’s best female friends. Ash was on good terms with her himself. She was the social organizer for party events, and other social events around the castle. She was the one who helped Ash learn how to dance so he would not embarrass Princess May at the Hylian Ball that happens every year.
“Nice seeing you here Ash. I was starting to become bored here. Normally if that happens and there is not much going on I can nap, but it seems these crystals that Hargahnim put us in prevents that from happening”.
“It is nice seeing you again as well Solidad”. Ash bowed before her before like she does on stage at the end of introducing plays at the Kakariko theater. “You were starting to get bored. Ha! I would have been bored right from the start of being in that Crystal”.
“Heh, that doesn’t surprise me Ash. If there is anyone with a short attention span it is you. I honestly do not know how Princess May keeps you in line from causing too much trouble around the Castle?”
“Trust me Solidad she has her ways” Ash laughed but starting blushing just thinking about May and her beautiful hair and her gorgeous cerulean eyes that sparkle like the fresh clear waters of Lake Hylia and that heartwarming smile she gives him when she is happy or having a fun time”
Wait why I am thinking May that way. GAH! Focus Ash focus!
This did not go unnoticed by Solidad and she gave a knowing smile. Instead of flustering Ash about it she thought she would give a rundown of what is happening, plus a history lesson.
After all, if Ash is going to be King of Hyrule someday and he is going to need to be knowledgeable about the Land and the history of its people. The Princess has helped him improve quite a bit. It is interesting that Ash is more of a hands on kinesthetic learner type rather than the classroom bookworm type. Oh boy, May and the advisor are going to have their handsfull with Ash someday. I look forward to that.
“Tell me Ash, do you know about the Triforce?”
“Of course I do Solidad, they are the sacred golden triangles that were left behind by the three goddesses after they created the world. It is divided into three parts. Each separate one representing Power, Intelligence, and Courage”
“Very good Ash, but it is Power, Wisdom, and Courage”
“Yeah yeah I know same difference”
Solidad sighed. There is a difference Ash but let’s move on from here. “Do you know how the Dark World became the way it did?”
“Yes, people began to become greedy when they heard about the golden power and went into the Sacred Realm trying to find it, it was eventually sealed off and eventually Drewondorf Dragmire touched it and it became this way”.
Solidad collapsed on the ground anime style and then groaned loudly because of the last part Ash said. “For the love of the goddesses Ash, really? You think the Sacred Realm became this way just because Drewondorf touched the triforce!”
“Well soooory, Solidad, you know I get bored with Instructor Elm’s history presentations. They are so boooooring and speaking in a monotone does not help matters. Also the books we use do not contain many pictures in them”
Solidad facepalmed but couldn’t hold in a chuckle about what Ash said about Instructor Elm. That was accurate to the T.
“Okay Ash listen carefully because if you don’t I will make you lead in the next Hyrule Castle Ballet and Misty will be in charge of instructing you.”
0_0 was Ash’s expression after hearing that before he bent down to the ground with his knees and elbows on the ground begging Solidad for that not to happen!
“As long as you can remember this Ash then I won’t let that happen to you okay.” She smiled towards Ash as he made a sigh of relief. “.the Triforce grants the audible wish of the one who touches it.”
“Ohhhhhh, I forgot about that part.” Ash exclaimed.
“However there is a catch” Solidad paused and Ash asked what the condition was.
“That person’s wish is kept in power as long as that person is alive...
That, surely, is why it was placed in the sacred land, and its location passed down only among those chosen. However, it looks as though that was interrupted somewhere...
Then, the one who again discovered the sacred land was the thief called Drewnondorf.
But, thankfully, he didn't know how to return to the World of Light.
...oh yes, I remembered.
You have the Magical Mirror that only the Hero can master, don't you!
There are several more of the magic portal that was on Mount Hebra.
If you use those and go back and forth between the two worlds, you can find the monsters that lurk in the World of Darkness!
The only one who can defeat Drewnon who is now the Demon King of Darkness, is you.”
“Thanks Solidad, if only you were my history tutor then I would have remember those things and paid attention.”
“No problem Ash, now may the way of the hero lead to the Triforce!” With that blessing, Ash performed his spin attack and held the Master Sword skyward before departing to rescue for the next maiden.
Ash made it next to the Skull Woods dungeon. The entire dungeon was uneventful including the boss fight. The boss was a giant Mothim That Ash managed to burn with just three blasts of his fire rod.
Drewnon must be becoming clueless if he thinks monsters like that will stop me.
The next crystal appeared in the ceiling and Ash caught it as it descended. The girl was had red hair and wore a black dress with red flame patterns on the skirt section of the dress. It was Flannery, she was the daughter of the blacksmith for King Norman. She worked alongside her father in learning how to run the forging and smelting process of all the castle’s metal produces, whether they were swords, door knobs, keys, shields, pipes, you name it. She had a clear interest in the Master Sword.
“Thank you Ash for saving me. It’s a shame you did not use the Beautiful shining sword on that monster you just beat, I was hoping to see it in action.”
“Sorry to disappoint you Flannery, but a pathetic excuse for a minion of that caliber doesn’t even deserve to be stabbed with a butter knife!” Flannery laughed hard at that what Ash just said.
“Oh my Ash, you are such a riot! Hey Ash, have you noticed that the newer regular monsters you encounter have been getting tougher?”
“Yeah now that you mention it, each dungeon the regular enemies are taking more hits to defeat. Is the Master Sword becoming defective?”
“Ha ha, no Ash, what that means is you are facing newer stronger monsters. Drewnon is hoping to wear you down in the battle of attrition. I can sense my dad’s blacksmith assistant in this realm. You may want to go check out the village of outcasts. If you can get him back to the Light World they can upgrade your Master Sword for your making it stronger!”
Ash was ecstatic to hear that.
“By the way Ash have you heard of the Great Catastrophe?” Ash nodded to affirm that he had.
'If one with an evil heart claims the Triforce, a "Hero" will unfailingly appear, and shall defeat the one who will become the origin of this "Great Catastrophe".
However, if the "Hero" were to fall, the world would be engulfed by the evil-hearted one'...
Yes, the only ones who are supposed to be able to become the "Hero" are those of the Knight Family that protected the Hylian royal family...
You carry their blood, I am sure of it. Make sure to rescue Princess May.”
“Don’t worry Flannery, I will not rest until May is rescued and this land is rid of Drewnon!”
“That’s what I wanted to hear! May the way of the hero lead to the Triforce! Ash performed his signature spin attack and then pointed the Master Sword Skyward.
After wandering around stealthily by the village of outcasts, Ash was able to find Politoad with a smith hat on.
Hmm that must be the guy Flannery was talking about. Ash decided to walk up to the toad smith and ask him if he was the assistant to Flannery’s dad Maxie the Blacksmith.(Author’s note, this is the Maxie from Team Magma, no Maxie is not evil in this fic, I just thought it would be nice to get some faces for some of the Maiden’s parents).
The Politoad smith just starting croaking which to ash was undiscernible. The Politoad, after several tries managed to speak words but they were barely discernible because they were so croak heavy. All Ash got out if was Yes Maxie, smith, you slow, thieves, ghosts, behind you, and run.
Wait, run, why would he say run? (Ash turned around to see a huge group Gengar ghosts along with Thieves(they are Makuhitas) grinning mischievously. The Gengar were preparing Shadow Ball. Ash dashed with his Pegasus Boots after the Politoad to escape the town. After ten minutes of nonstop running,
Ash came up with a plan. He and the politoad smith ran back to the entrance of thieves town. He then took out his Fire Rod and shot a flamethrower at the group of ghosts and thieves. The ghosts became transparent and the thieves evaded it. However the stream of flames went straight towards village’s bomb shop, which was in the middle of the town. The politoad facepalmed at this turn of events. Ash grabbed the politoad and while holding him in one arm pulled out his Magic Mirror warping him Ash and the politoad could feel the huge explosion quake but thankfully they were warped before the debris and fire reached them.
When the warped back they were in Kakariko Village. The Politoad smith turned into a male person with glasses, he was slightly taller than Ash with short blond hair wearing a sky blue black smith outfit.
“Oh boy, I don’t know whether back there you have bad luck or you are just stupid”
“Personally, I think it was bad luck, I mean we can’t warp while on the run, and I did not know those monsters were going to dodge that flame rod attack!” Ash replied back a little irritated at the blacksmith assistant's retort.
Clemont realized he was a little too hard on Ash, especially because of the tense situation he was just in earlier. However Ash did save his life, and he was now no longer trapped in the Dark World anymore.
“Sorry, I guess I did overreact a little. Well thank you for getting me out of there, I can see your quick thinking kept us from getting blown to bits heh”
“Don’t mention it, by the way do you guys think you can forge my Sword?” Ash showed him the Master Sword. Clemont was acting giddier than a fangirl after examining the Master Sword in person.
After muttering incoherent syllables for a few moments he finally managed to say, “Why it would be an honor to forge your Master Sword. It is not everyday that you get to see and witness such a renowned blade. Ash followed Clemont to his Maxie’s house. Maxie was relieved to have his assistant back with him. Clemont showed Maxie the Master Sword and explained what Ash wanted done to it. Maxie started stroking his chin in thought.
He approached Ash and said, “In order to temper this sword it is going to cost ya.”
Ash gulped nervously, “How much he squeaked out”
“Oh, about a hefty price of Ten Ruppees.” Ash had an anime sweat drop at the back of his head after he heard that.
Wow, how do these people make a living with that kind of price. For a second I thought I was going to have to get out my life savings.
Ash finally heard Maxie after breaking from his train of thought.
“Ash! How does 10 Rupees sound?”
“Huh, Oh, Yeah, 10 rupees is fine with me” Ash handed him over a yellow rupee.
“Come back and your sword should be done within the hour.”
Ash went exploring the shops that were in Kakariko village, he decided to get him a bite to eat while he was here. He did not know how much time passes between the Light and Dark World. The dark world always seemed to be before sunset. After satisfying his appetite. He decided to stock up on some Blue Potions later down the road.
Ash went back to smith shop after an hour passed and picked up his new Tempered Sword. Instead of shining a white gleam, the blade now had a shiny flamecolored appearance. Ash practiced some sword techniques to get the feel of his blade. After trying a little he could definitely feel a strong power rush coursing into his arm whenever he swung the sword. Satisfied he thanked the blacksmiths and left back for the Village of Outcasts.
Entering back into the Village of Outcasts. Ash noticed that the place was a ghost town. All of it was now in ruins and rubble. He saw where a statue of a giant gargoyle was now gone and a staircase was below it. Looking at his map, this was the location of the fourth maiden.
Ash stepped inside but a mysterious figure was watching behind him before vanishing in a shadowy cloud of smoke.
If Ash and May could take the place of any characters in a certain game who would you have be and why?(Ps Ash and May have to take the place of characters in the SAME game and it also cannot be Pokemon).
