Title: Through Time and Space
Characters: Ash/Dawn – Pearlshipping – other shippings comes in later.
Rating: Teen at first but it WILL go up to Mature/Adult for sexual themes and Violence. Warning will be given before hand so keep an eye on the rating.
Disclaimer: Like heck I own anything – everyone belongs to their own creators, I just get to play with them *Pouts* If I did own them, I’d probably allow them to have more than six pokemon and keep Vulpix all to myself so I think you can safely say that I don’t own Pokemon. I make no money/profit from this story!
Summary: Ash and Dawn are still travelling as new adventures, dangers and feelings are revealed as they go along.
What happens when new and old faces threaten everything and they must face up to destiny.
Ages: Ash: 17.
Dawn: 15. – I feel really uncomfortable writing those two in sexual terms while underage. So they will be older in my story, I hope this doesn’t offend anyone.
Warning: Slight bashing of Misty and Gary but not too much. Major bashing of Paul, really don’t like him. Sexual theme and violence is included. This is AU; it’s not completely following the programme but more of the game.
In this story: Ash and Dawn have not exchanged stories of the legendary Pokemon. Ash and Dawn will visit Oreburgh City again as well as Eterna City. Paul still has Chimchar – he didn’t release him. Dawn and Ash have made poffins before but I’m putting in Hearthome City. Dawn has not met Gary either. Brock did not get the egg in the competition.

Chapter 1: Introduction
“Wow, is it really hot or is it just me?” a teenaged boy asked his accompanies as he wiped his forehead with his forearm.
“Pika,” the small yellow mouse agreed miserably. He was sitting on the boy’s bare shoulder as the boy had stripped his body warmer and t-shirt in order to cool down. The body warmer had been stuffed into his bag while his t-shirt was tucked into the back of his jeans.
“Is there anywhere cooler, Brock?” the girl asked. She had stripped her white beanie and stuffed it into her bag with her pink scarf. Her hair was pinned up to keep it from sticking to her neck and she had removed the black shirt to reveal a white strapped top. She had also removed her pink boots and socks because they weren’t suitable for summer wear.
“We are nearly at the edge of the wood, once we reach in there, it should be cooler,” Brock said. He wore brown jeans and a green t-shirt, having removed his shirt in order to deal with the heat. Thankfully, by being a breeder, it meant he was used to the heat but the other two wasn’t.
“Pip,” the blue penguin chirped sadly from where it was curled up in the girl’s arms.
“I know Piplup, do you want to go back into your ball?” the girl asked and got a nod. “Okay, back into your ball.” She pulled out a small red and white ball and with a flash of red; Piplup was back into his ball safe from the heat.
“He’ll be okay Dawn, we have plenty of water with us,” the boy said as he reached out and touched Dawn’s shoulder.
“I know, I just don’t like seeing them miserable Ash,” Dawn said and Ash nodded in agreement. Dawn tucked the ball into the bag just as they moved closer to the edge of the forest.
“Here we are,” Brock said and everyone hurried near it.
“Oh, there is a god,” Dawn muttered under her breath as they stepped into the cool shade and relief swam through them as the coolness washed over them. “I’m never complaining about the cold again!”
Ash laughed in agreement as he watched Dawn pull on her socks and boots before he swallowed when he saw that her white top was sticking to her and enhancing her curves. Pulling his eyes away from her, he turned to look at Brock who was studying the map to see where they could go without leaving the shade of the forest.
Dawn eyed Ash out of the corner of her eye. She couldn’t help herself, he looked hot the way he dressed and she knew that she had feelings for the older boy. She knew it was a crush, she had one before but it felt stronger for some reason and it made her slightly nervous.
Turning back to her clothes, she pulled on her black shirt but left her beanie and scarf in the bag, she didn’t want to risk overheating herself despite they were in the cool shade. Zipping up her bag, she heard Brock finally make a decision on what way they were going and the teenagers followed him as he led the way.
“Do you think that there will be any more trouble?” Dawn asked. “And I don’t mean from Team Rocket, they always seem to be following us.” Ash grinned.
“Nah, I shouldn’t think so but then again, it just depends on what city we get to,” Ash said. Dawn nodded in agreement as Brock came to a stop when they reached a fork in the path. One was leading right and the other was leading up.
“Well…we can go that way or this way,” Brock pointed to the right then to the path in front of them. “Both lead to the same place.”
Ash and Dawn looked at each other before looking at the two paths, undecided.
“Flip for it?” Ash asked, turning to look at Dawn, who nodded in agreement. Ash pulled out a coin and handed it over to Dawn.
“Heads for up, Tails for right?” Dawn suggested. Ash nodded his agreement. Dawn flipped the coin and it spun in the air, twinkling under the sunlight before spinning down toward the ground, where it landed.
Dawn and Ash leaned over, peering at the coin to see what way they were going and saw it was a tail.
“Looks like we’re going right,” Ash said as he picked up the coin and pocketed it. Brock gave a short nod and made their way along the path.
A little further along the path, Dawn stopped when she saw a fiery red mane out of the corner of her eye and turned to find she was looking at a white horse that had fire for a mane and tail. There was also fire on its legs.
“A Ponyta!” Dawn squealed with excitement as she lifted her pink pokedex and typed in the name and the hand-held computer brought up a picture with a computer female voice accompanies it.
‘Ponyta. About an hour after birth, its fiery mane and tail will grow out, giving it an impressive appearance. Its legs grows strong while its chases after its parents. It runs in fields and mountains all day. Its nature is fire.’ The computer told Dawn.
Ponyta lifted its head when it heard the girl and looked at her curiously before moving closer. Dawn smiled as she reached out a hand to pat the horse when Ash’s strong grip covered her wrist.
Turning to look at him, Ash nodded behind Ponyta and Dawn turned to see an older form of Ponyta standing nearby, watching the humans interact with the Ponyta.
‘Rapidash. It is the evolved version of Ponyta. It gallops at nearly 150 miles per hour. With its mane blazing ferociously, it races as if it were an arrow. It has astounding acceleration. From standstill, it can reach top speed within 10 steps. Its nature is fire.’ The computer spoke.
The Rapidash in question had a longer fiery mane. The fire wasn’t as calm as the Ponyta; it was more out of control.
“Do you think it will attack?” Dawn asked but Ash shook his head.
“No, it’s testing us,” Ash explained as he kept his gaze on the horse while leading Dawn’s hand over to Ponyta and allowed Dawn to pat Ponyta’s nose.
Ponyta let out a small whine as it pushed its nose into Dawn’s hand, thoroughly enjoying the attention it was receiving from the girl. Dawn giggled.
“You are so cute,” Dawn told it as she moved closer and ran a hand through its fiery mane. “Wow, the mane feels cold to touch but it’s still fiery.” Ash nodded.
“Yeah, that way no humans get burned accidentally by touching it,” Ash explained. Rapidash gave a soft snort and Ponyta pushed it’s nuzzle into Dawn’s hand once more before turning around and walked away with Rapidash.
Dawn and Ash watched the pokemon disappear out of sight before they turned around and hurried after Brock, who had found a place suitable for camping.
Brock looked up from where he was sitting at the table, his pokemon were already out of their balls and enjoying the cool shade.
Croagunk was a large purple frog like pokemon that walked on its hind legs. It had white bandages decoration around its chest and two large orange circles on its mouth that inflated whenever it breathed. Its hand had an orange stripe on it. It was a poison and fighting pokemon.
Sudowoodo was a large tree like creature with two branches with large round green leaves for hands. Despite it looked like a tree, its nature is actually rock.
Croagunk was sitting on the grass next to Brock while Sudowoodo was basking under the shade of the tree.
“Hey, what took you so long?” Brock asked as he watched them gather their poke balls to let their pokemon out. Pikachu had already taken his place on the table.
Ash brought out his pokemon, Turtwig, Staravia and Buizel.
Turtwig was a turtle like creature with a hard shell on its back. There was a stem of leaves on his head and it let out a small growl as he stretched. It was a grass type.
Staravia was a large brown and white bird whose hair curled at the top. It is a flying and normal type.
Buizel was an orange otter like creature that had two tails with white tips. It had a large blue floatation ring around its neck and two blue fins on its arms. It was a water type.
Dawn brought out her pokemon, Piplup, Buneary, Pachirisu and Ambipom.
Buneary was a rabbit like creature that walked on hind legs. Its ears were covered in white fluff as well as its bottom half. It was a normal type Pokemon.
Pachirisu was a small squirrel like pokemon that was white with blue stripes. It had blue ears and was currently yawning. It was an electric type pokemon.
Aipom was a monkey like pokemon with two hands for a tail and it was a light purple colour. It was currently making her way over to a tree so she could get some fruit. It was a normal type pokemon.
“Sorry, we saw a Ponyta,” Dawn explained, still excited from seeing the pokemon.
“A Ponyta?” Brock asked and Dawn nodded. Brock looked at his map and nodded. “Yes, this area is common to Ponyta and Rapidash.” He frowned. “Actually it is also common to Growlithe too.”
“Really?” Dawn asked. “The same pokemon Office Jenny has?”
“Yes,” Ash said, noticing the love struck look on Brock’s face when Dawn mentioned the police woman.
“Have you ever had one?” Dawn asked, curious. Ash shook his head. “Would you like one?” Ash looked at Dawn, curious.
“Why are you all of a sudden curious?” Ash asked. Dawn flushed slightly before she shrugged.
“I don’t seem to know a lot about you, I know that Pikachu is your first pokemon but I don’t know what other Pokemon you had and I’m curious to know if you ever wanted a Pokemon that you never caught. You always seemed taken whenever you see a Growlithe,” Dawn explained.
Brock just arched an eyebrow toward the back of Dawn’s head, impressed while Ash just looked at Dawn with interest.
“I’ll tell you about the pokemon I’ve caught another time, it’s kind of a long story,” Ash said and Dawn nodded.
“Great, but it doesn’t answer my actual question,” Dawn pointed out. Ash groaned.
“Jeez, you’re like a Cubone with its bone!” Ash exclaimed. Dawn looked at him, curiously.
“A Cubone?” Dawn asked before excitement crossed her face. “Have you seen one?” Ash nodded. “Can I see it on your Pokedex?” Ash brought out his red pokedex and typed Cubone in and showed Dawn the picture.
‘Cubone. It is a lonesome creature that has a habit of being called heartless for it’s reluctant to care for others but when it thinks of its dead mother, it cries. Its crying makes the skull it wears rattle hollowly.’ The computer said.
“Oh, that so sad,” Dawn whispered, her heart hurting for Cubone. The picture brought up dinosaur like creature. It was a light brown colour and it had a white skull on its head with a bone in its hand.
“Yeah,” Ash agreed before he closed his pokedex and placed it back into his back pocket and turned to Brock, who was eyeing the two of them with an unreadable look on his face before he noticed that Ash was looking at him.
“I think we all should set up camp,” Brock said, warding off any questions that Ash might ask. “I don’t like the way the weather is turning and it won’t do any of us any good if we’re ill.”
“Sure,” Ash agreed while Dawn nodded before she turned to Ash.
“You’ve still to answer my question,” she reminded him. Brock stifled his laughers as Ash turned to look at Dawn before he muttered something under his breath. “Sorry? What was that?”
“I said, yes, I would like a Growlithe, happy now?” Ash asked. Dawn rolled her eyes.
“All you had to do was just say yes or no, I was just being curious,” Dawn reminded him as she walked past him to set up her tent. Ash hung his head before he turned around and moved over to set up his tent.
“He likes her,” Brock murmured to himself, drawing Pikachu’s attention to him. Pikachu tilted his head slightly as he thought about what Brock was talking about before he jumped down from the table and moved over to the Pokemon. Brock turned to the meal and started preparing the food.
Ash finished setting up his tent and smoothed out his sleeping bag and placed his bag in the corner so that it was safe before he pulled himself out of the tent just as Dawn walked past him.
“Look Dawn,” Ash grabbed her arm softly to stop her and she looked at him. “I’m sorry for being short with you. I’m just not used to people asking me these questions.” Ash dropped his hand from her arm as Dawn’s blue eyes probed his for a short moment before she nodded.
“It’s okay,” she assured him with a soft smile before she turned around and walked over to the Pokemon with Ash watching her leave.
“Dinner guys!” Brock called and there was a rush toward the table as they were eager to get fed. Sitting at the table, Dawn and Ash sat across from each other while Brock filled out the bowls with soup and placed it in front of them.
Dawn and Ash had filled out the bowls with pokemon food and placed them in front of the Pokemon, some sharing a bowl because they didn’t eat all the food in one bowl and others having their own before they turned back to their own food.
Brock sat down next to Ash while Pikachu sat near Dawn, enjoying the rice balls that Dawn shared with him.
“So, where do we hope to be by tomorrow?” Dawn asked as she turned back to face the men and started tucking into her own food.
“At least near a town,” Brock said as he studied the map once more that was placed off to the side. “We are near a city called Hearthome City.”
“Really?” Dawn exclaimed, startling the men.
“Yeah, why?” Brock asked.
“Because they are holding a contest and there is a place called Amity Square where you can walk with a Pokemon without fear,” Dawn explained.
“A gym?” Ash asked, making sure he swallowed his food first, and Dawn nodded before frowning.
“If I remember, her name is Fantina but she won’t battle you until you have at least four badges. My mum told me about her, she concentrates on the contests first then the battle,” Dawn explained.
“Oh…that’s okay, I guess,” Ash said but Dawn just smiled.
“Don’t worry, you can fight her after you get your next two badges,” Dawn assured him. Ash just smiled back. They ate their food in silence as the sky began to darken as night fell over them with the stars twinkling brightly as the clouds moved.
“Okay guys, let’s get some sleep,” Brock said as he stood up and moved over to his tent.
“We’ll wash up and put the fire out,” Dawn said. Brock nodded as he unzipped his tent and stepped into it as Ash and Dawn picked up the plate. Dawn moved over to the lake so she could wash the plates while Ash put out the fire by putting dirt over the flames to smother it without smoke being sent up.
Once Dawn was finished washing and drying the dishes, she walked over to Brock’s bag and placed the crockery, carefully, into the bag before zipping it up and moved over to her tent. She smiled when she saw that all the Pokemon have already took up their spaces in her tent before she looked at Ash, who was standing in front of his tent.
“Night Dawn,” Ash said.
“Night Ash,” Dawn replied as they shared a smile before climbing into their respective tents, got changed and fell fast asleep.
Meanwhile, in a cold harsh building, there was a group of people sitting at a table looking at the man who sat at the head of the table.
“What do you want us to do, Master?” a female voice asked.
“I want you to steal the pokemon. They have the power we need in order to change this world,” the master ordered.
“And people who are against us?” a male voice asked.
“Knock their Pokemon out and prove you are better than them,” the master said before he chuckled to himself.
All information about the Pokemon comes from the Pearl/Diamond Pokedex index. I hope that helps if anyone is looking to find this information. Cubone had additional information added; I got that from Pikachu’s Vacation from the first movie. The bit where it cries, that was taken from the P/D Pokedex.
