The Pokémon World Tournament
Pairings: Pearl and OCxMay
Hello. This is my first fanfic. It takes place right after Ash travelled through Unova. This is an AU fic, steering away from the anime after the quarter finals of the Sinnoh League. Tobias doesn't exist, so Ash won (like he should have). Ash travelled to Unova with Dawn and Brock. Iris doesn't exist, and Cilan is just a gym leader. This fic is set in Gen VI, so Kalos Pokémon and Mega Evolutions will appear.
Also, the tournament is loosly based on what was in the BW2 games. I have added my own spin to it, so stay tuned for that. There is an OC major to the plot, so be prepared for that. If you ever have any questions about this story, feel free to either leave it in a review, or PM me, and I'll do my best to clear things up.
“Ladies and gentlemen,” the announcer said, “this is the moment you have all been waiting for. The final showdown between Jake Smith of Littleroot Town in the Hoenn Region, and Billy Randall of Saffron City in Kanto. These two outstanding trainers have been through thick and thin to get here. The Champions Tournament has been a long one. After hundreds of trainers and countless battles, these two have gone all the way.”
The two trainers stood opposite from each other. Jake, standing tall and slim, was wearing gray sneakers, baggy jeans, had a black t-shirt underneath a red zip up sweatshirt, and had brown hair covered by a white hat with a blue brim. On his shoulder sat an Eevee. He was clenching his fists covered in black fingerless gloves in anticipation. He looked to be in his late teens.
On the other side of the field was a medium height, yet well-built man in his early twenties. He wore brown shoes, blue jeans, a white tank top, and had black hair covered in a blue beanie. He had white gloves on his hands. Both looked at the ref waiting to start.
The referee took over from there. “This battle between Jake Smith of Littleroot Town representing the Hoenn Region, and Billy Randall representing the Kanto Region from Saffron City will shortly be underway. This is a full six on six match with both trainers being allowed to make substitutions at will, and the match will end when all six of either trainer’s Pokemon are defeated, or if one trainer forfeits. This match will be held on a plain, dirt battlefield so neither side will have an advantage. There will be a fifteen minute break after three of either sides’ Pokemon are knocked out, and the battle will continue after that. Are both trainers ready?” the referee asked.
Both trainers replied with a yes.
“Then please send out your first Pokemon.”
“Volcarona, you’re up!” shouted Billy. A large, white moth-looking creature with six orange wings appeared, ready to battle.
“Shadow engage!” Jake called. Greninja, a frog looking Pokemon appeared. It had a navy-blue body with white spots on its joints and a tongue that wrapped around its neck like a scarf. It struck a battle ready pose.
"And it's Jake's Greninja, known for its ability to change its type by using a move, versus Billy's Volcarona, one of the most powerful bug types in existence. Will Volcarona's power be able to overcome Greninja's ability to play mind games with its opponent?" The announcer shouted.
"Begin!" The ref said.
"Volcarona, use Bug Buzz!" Billy commanded.
"Flash Cannon!" Jake countered.
Volcarona let of a high-pitched screeching noise that caused many people to cover their ears. Meanwhile Shadow's body gave off a metallic glint as it changed into the steel type while emitting a bright flash aimed at Volcarona. Neither Pokemon seemed phased by the attacks due to the resistances.
“Flamethrower!" Billy called.
"Counter with Hydro Pump!" Jake shouted.
Volcarona opened its mouth and spewed flames at the now steel type Greninja. However he soon turned blue and opened his mouth sending a powerful blast of water at the flamethrower. The two attacks met in the middle before the Hydro Pump quickly overpowered it and sent Volcarona flying back.
Damn Billy thought to himself. I need to get Volcarona back into this or he's out for good. "Giga Drain now!" He said, a hint of desperation in his voice.
Large green tendrils shot out of Volcarona's body and quickly grabbed Greninja, draining its health. After each passing second, Greninja got weaker as Volcarona looked stronger.
"Break away using Nightslash followed by Surf!" Jake commanded.
Greninja turned black before a dark aura emanated from his tongue. He then slammed it into the tendrils, breaking free. Before Volcarona could react, the now-blue Greninja swamped the entire field with water washing it in front of its trainer's feet, unconscious.
"Volcarona is unable to battle, Greninja is the winner!" The ref announced. Roars emanated from the crowd in response.
Billy recalled Volcarona into its Poke Ball. "Thanks Volcarona, despite the type advantage and trickery, you were able to take a lot out of it. I couldn't have asked for more." He thought for a second before grabbing a Poke Ball from his belt. "Salamence, I choose you!" He called.
A large dragon with a turquoise body and large red wings appeared. At its sight, Shadow cowered in fear for a few moments.
"Would you look at that folks! Salamence's intimidate seems to have taken effect. Greninja's attack power has been reduced because of it" the announcer boomed.
"Salamence versus Greninja. Begin!" the ref said.
Shadow doesn't have much energy left, but I should at least be able to land a few hits before he goes down, Jake thought to himself. "Shadow use Flash cannon!" He ordered.
"Counter with Dragonbreath!" Billy yelled.
Greninja shot out a beam of light right after taking on steel properties. It met in the middle of the field with the Dragonbreath, causing a small explosion.
"Shadow use Ice Beam!"
Greninja's body turned icy cold as it shot a beam of ice at Salamence. Meanwhile Salamence launched a flamethrower at the ice beam, easily powering through it.
"Water Shuriken!" Jake called in an attempt to lessen the damage. But it was too late and the flamethrower crashed into ice-type Greninja, knocking it out.
"Greninja is unable to battle, Salamence wins!" The ref yelled.
Jake recalled Shadow. "Thanks a lot bud, you were outstanding out there" he said. "Let's fight fire with fire!" he said to Billy. "Maverick engage!"
A Garchomp emerged from the Poke Ball. It was dark blue with a long tail and a fin on its back, as well as scythe-like appendages on its arms. It's head resembled a hammerhead shark.
"Would you look at that! It's a battle of the dragons! Both of these pseudo-legendaries are extremely powerful, and we're in for a treat now folks!" The announcer said.
"Salamence versus Garchomp. Begin!"
"Salamence, use Dragonbreath!"
"Block with iron tail. Then get in the air!"
Salamence sent a green energy from its maw aimed straight at Garchomp. However, he easily deflected the attack with an iron tail, then began to climb into the air.
"Get behind Salamence, then use crunch!" Jake ordered.
"Slap it away with an iron tail!" Billy yelled.
As Garchomp moved in behind Salamence, Salamence swung an iron hard tail at it. Garchomp swiftly dodged it, then crunched down on the back of Salamence's neck. Salamence screamed in pain.
"Now ice fang!"
Garchomp's teeth became ice cold and seeped into Salamence's neck. Another roar of pain was heard.
"****" Billy said to himself. Salamence needs to get out of there now. Desperate times call for desperate measures. "Salamence use Outrage!" He called in desperation.
Salamence's eyed started to glow a deep red. It began to thrash violently attempting to free itself from Garchomp.
"Release and use substitute!" Jake said calmly.
Garchomp released Salamence from its mouth and quickly vanished, leaving a copy of itself in its place. Salamence immediately took the bait, attacking it with everything it had, rage in its eyes. Salamence continued to attack the substitute, finally breaking it. When it disappeared, Salamence started to hit itself, the confusion effect of outrage kicking in. It never saw Garchomp's Dragon Rush, knocking it out cold.
"Salamence is unable to battle, Garchomp is the winner!" The ref announced.
"We'll folks, it was a risky move to use outrage to break free, and in the end it ended up backfiring, allowing Garchomp to score a KO relatively healthy. Can Billy overcome this setback?" The announcer yelled.
"Salamence return" Billy muttered, recalling Salamence back into its Poke Ball. "I'm sorry, I made a huge mistake and you had to suffer for it. I hope you can forgive me." He took out a third Poke Ball. "I wasn't planning on using you just yet, but I don't really have a choice. Aggron I need you!"
The large steel and rock type Pokemon appeared. Its body was covered in steel armor and had three horns protruding from the front of its head.
"Aggron versus Garchomp, begin!"
"Aggron use metal claw!"
Aggron started running towards Garchomp holding out claws that extended metallically. Meanwhile, Garchomp stomped a foot into the ground, causing the ground to shake. However, Aggron surprisingly pushed through and landed a clean hit knocking Garchomp back.
"And it looks like Sturdy has saved Billy's Aggron!" The announcer said. "However, that hit was extremely effective, and I don't know how much more Aggron can take."
"Earthquake one more time!" Jake shouted
"Aggron jump, then use Heavy Slam!" Billy commanded.
Garchomp slammed its foot into the ground, causing another tremor. However, Aggron surprisingly jumped away in time and crashed into Garchomp, causing massive damage.
"Knock it back with flamethrower!"
The Mach Pokemon spewed flames from its mouth aimed at Aggron. However, the flames barely did anything as the Iron Armor Pokemon's body glowed silver.
"Now dragon claw Aggron!"
"Block with Iron Tail, then use Brick Break!"
Aggron charged forward, claws extended aiming at Garchomp. It swung at him, but was blocked by the iron tail and swiftly met a brick break to the face, causing it to stagger.
Finish with Earthquake!" Jake said.
Garchomp stamped a foot on the ground, causing a massive tremor. Aggron, still dizzy from the brick break, succumbed to the earthquake and fainted.
"Aggron is unable to battle, Garchomp is the winner!" The ref announced.
"Garchomp has done it again! thats two KOs for it now, and it’s still looking strong! And with that, we will now go into a fifteen minute break."
