    Default Pokemon: <3Shi (3ShiShipping Rated R)

    Hello all! This is my first fic here. It is 3ShiShipping (see my name if your unclear what that means) and it's rated R...although these first two chapters I'm posting are more like PG-13. Also, unlike my Palletshipping fic of yesteryear, I am striving to make this fic more like the anime, because I wanna see 3Shi in the anime! Enjoy!

    ***

    We open on a bright, clear day. A picturesque land setting, however we can see a helicopter flying through the air. As we near the helicopter, we see a large red R on the side, indicating the owners are none other than Team Rocket. It begins to lower, and eventually hovers over a large TR base.

    We then cut to inside GIOVANI's office, where he sits reading a file. His Pursian growls lightly. Suddenly, his doors open, and Jessie, James, and Meowth are thrown inside with a scream.

    JESSIE
    Of all the ungrateful treatment! I am your superior!

    JAMES
    Yes, seniority counts for something right?

    MEOWTH
    AAAHHH!!! Quiet guys! It's DA BOSS!

    Suddenly, Jessie and James stand at perfect attention and salute.

    JESSIE
    Boss, we meet again.

    JAMES
    So nice of you to invite us in person for our annual report.

    GIOVANI laughs.

    GIOVANI
    Annual report. Annual FAILURE you mean!

    Jessie tears at the eyes.

    JESSIE
    It's completely dishonorable, I know. But if you knew how dreadful it is trying to get anything done with James and Meowth always blowing my mastermind plans.

    MEOWTH & JAMES
    WHAT??!?

    GIOVANI
    Now, now, no need to go throwing eachother to the lions just yet.

    Jessie smiles sheepishly at a very angry Meowth and James.

    GIOVANI
    I sent you to follow... that Ketchum boy to nab his Pikachu. How many years ago was that?

    JESSIE
    Let's not quibble on semantics. I'll have you know that you were correct...that Pikachu
    is one powerful Pokemon.

    JAMES
    We have exhausted every known Team Rocket protocol for capturing difficult Pokemon and
    time and time again they have proven fruitless.

    MEOWTH
    Check out our Team Rocket ordering history. We've purchased at least one of every robot and
    countless balloons, the frugal yet tasteful Meowth balloon I might add.

    JAMES
    And what do we get for it, sir? Blasted off...so many times I no longer even feel pain from thunderbolts.

    JESSIE
    Please...before you decide a fair yet severe punishment for James and Meowth, I'd like you to
    consider my promotion to Pokemon Contest Infultrator. My Dustox and I are a smash in Hoenn!

    GIOVANI
    When I approved for your transfer to the Hoenn Region, it was with the hopeful intent you could
    manage to start an impressive Team Rocket base, one that would be a mecca worthy of an
    organization of our calibre. From what I've seen, the "outposts" you have established are
    ridiculously absurd.

    James whispers at Jessie.

    JAMES
    See? I told you we should have ordered full marble flooring!

    JESSIE
    You were the one who wanted to install that asinine bottle cap despenser.

    GIOVANI
    STILL, in full review, your overall mission hasn't been a complete loss, not in the least.

    JESSIE & JAMES & MEOWTH
    HUH?

    GIOVANI
    You have helped the Ketchum boy become one powerful trainer, and his Pikachu...if it's power level
    was off the charts when he began, he must be incredibly strong now...and that's all thanks to you.

    James smiles at Jessie happily.

    JAMES
    Hmmm, now that he mentions it, the sheer number of times Pikachu has thunderbolted us
    must have racked that Pokemon's power up to legendary status...for a Pikachu.

    GIOVANI
    And, for better or worse, the two of you have been loyal to our organization, and it shows.
    People all across Johto, Kanto, and now Hoenn know of Team Rocket and our ideals.
    Or, at the very least, your bumbling makes our Team appear to be less-threatening.

    JESSIE
    We've dutifully said our Team Rocket motto to anyone who dared cross our path.

    JAMES
    I have nightmares about rhyming random words.

    GIOVANI
    So...now the question remains...do your losses outweigh your winnings?

    JESSIE & JAMES & MEOWTH
    ...Yes?

    GIOVANI
    I have summoned a few specialists who have done some... special retcon on Ketchum's
    life. I am confident we will be able to finally obtain that Pikachu.

    JESSIE
    Brilliant! Finally, with the help of our fearless leader, we shall capture that Pikachu once and for all!

    JAMES & MEOWTH
    Yeah!

    WOBBUFFET
    Wooobbuffet!

    JAMES
    Eh....how will we do that, sir?

    There is a small beep at an intercom on GIOVANI's desk, and he grins.

    GIOVANI
    With the help of your temporary team leaders.

    Jessie, James, and Meowth all grow very still and silent.

    JESSIE & JAMES & MEOWTH
    ...Temporary Team Leaders?

    The doors open, and the three turn around. In steps CASSIDY and BUTCH. Needless to say, Jessie reacts worse than the others.

    CASSIDY
    You requested us, sir?

    GIOVANI
    Explain to Jessie and James how you plan to finally achieve what they could not. I trust
    you four...all original field Team Rocket graduates...can accomplish what two can not.

    CASSIDY
    With pleasure, boss. If you two can manage to come this way...

    Cassidy motions to the doors, Jessie looks at her demonically.

    JESSIE
    Grrrrr.....

    The five walk into the hallway, and proceed to venture down it.

    BUTCH
    It's quite simple, actually. In our vast research of the boy, we've
    managed to obtain quite an interesting psychological profile.

    JESSIE
    Oh please, our assignment is to capture Pikachu, not help the twerp fight
    his inner demons.

    Butch and Cassidy stop. Jessie and James continue for a moment, then stop. They turn and look at them annoyingly.

    BUTCH
    But that is precisely what will happen. We have figured out the perfect way to get
    Pikachu for the boss.

    JESSIE
    Oh, and I'd just like to hear this brilliant strategy, Bruce.

    BUTCH
    THE NAME'S BUTCH, AND YOU KNOW IT!

    CASSIDY
    We'll simply have the young Mr. Ketchum give us his Pikachu.

    Jessie, James and Meowth all look at each other insanely, and bust up laughing.

    MEOWTH
    That's a hoot-hoot!

    JESSIE
    Perhaps you should have your psychological evaluations re-evaluated, dear Cassidy.
    The twerp may be dense but he isn't stupid.

    CASSIDY
    No he's not. What he is, however, is kind-hearted. That's a weakness you've never
    dreamed of exploiting to it's fullest. The kid cares about his Pokemon, but there are
    Humans he cares about even more.

    Jessie rolls her eyes.

    JESSIE
    The other twerps? Wrong again, sis. Ash usually saves his Pikachu first then it saves them.

    CASSIDY
    I'm not talking about them. Were talking about someone Ash cares so much about, he
    stays away from...perhaps wisely.

    JESSIE
    Who in the world are you muttering about?

    BUTCH
    When it comes to the planning, we'll let you in on a need-to-know basis. All
    we need you to do is act as a decoy.

    CASSIDY
    So while were out capturing the boy, you two are to return to Houen, and find Ketchum.
    This locator device will help us find you.

    Cassidy hands a small device to James.

    BUTCH
    Now go.

    CASSIDY
    And don't mess this one up. Were giving you the easiest assignment possible.

    Butch and Cassidy walk away. When they are gone, Jessie blows a gasket.

    JESSIE
    WHO EXACTLY DOES THAT RETCHED CASSIDY THINK SHE IS?
    OF ALL THE....*ORDERING* US AROUND LIKE FIRST YEAR STUDENTS?

    JAMES
    Their win/loss ratio isn't that far from ours.

    JESSIE
    I CLOBBERED Cassidy back in training academy, and I'll CLOBBER her now!

    JAMES
    Uh oh. What are you thinking now?

    JESSIE
    Were going to prove once and for all that we are superior to Cassidy!

    MEOWTH
    Da Boss'll love this.

    JESSIE
    It's a no-brainer! All we have to do is find this special person before they do,
    kidnap them, and then it's a hop-skip-and a jump to bringing back Pikachu!

    JAMES
    But we don't even know who Butch and Cassidy are going after.

    JESSIE
    We've been following the twerp since he captured his first Pokemon...all the
    information we need is right in our brains...we just have to recall it!

    Jessie goes into deep thinking, as we grow closer to her face.

    MEOWTH
    Perhaps it's that red-headed twoip they parted ways with.

    JAMES
    The one that always had that Togepi? Hardly. We've captured her before to no avail.

    Jessie stays statue still, you can practically see the gears working behind those eyes.

    MEOWTH
    His mom back in Pallet town?

    JAMES
    Doubtful, that Mr. Mime can hold it's own, somehow.

    Suddenly, Jessie's eyes narrow and she smiles devilishly. A tiny laugh can be heard from her.

    JESSIE
    I've figured it out!

    Jessie begins walking to a computer terminal.

    JESSIE
    Now, all I have to find is his last known location...you'll pay Cassidy!

    Fade to BLACK.

    Pokemon: <3Shi
    Chapter 1


    We open on a Blank screen with the episode title appearing; INTO THE UNOWN WE GO

    ASH (voice)
    Into the Unown we Go!

    We cut to Ash, Brock, May, Max, and Pikachu walking down a path in a field. It is bright and sunny.

    NARRATOR
    Still excited from his latest victory, Ash continues on with blazing determination.
    And his enthusiasm can only infect May, who is equally determined to earn her
    next contest ribbon.

    ASH
    Yeah! One step closer to becoming a Pokemon master and it isn't even noon yet!

    MAX
    Hey, ya think maybe we can slow down a little? Not all of us are in a hurry.

    MAY
    Oh come on, Max! Both Ash and I have a lot of preperation coming up. Might as well
    get to where we need to be!

    BROCK
    Besides, I hear the next town has a great Pokemon Aerobics Center. And...and...

    Brock's eyes explode and are replaced by giant hearts.

    BROCK
    The leader of the center is the world-famous EZINA, poster princess guru and beauty model!
    No time to waste!

    MAX
    Oh, terrific.

    MAY
    Sounds great to me! I bet my Beautifly and Skitty could benefit from learning aerobics.
    Staying in shape is always important.

    ASH
    Hey...what's that up ahead?

    The others look in the direction Ash is pointing, and see a large building way ahead of them.

    MAY
    What do you suppose that is? The PokeNavi says this is all open country.

    BROCK
    Looks like a building, come on...let's check it out.

    They all take off running, and come up to a two-story building. And next to it, is a boy about Brock's age. He has long and wild cobalt blue hair, and he's wearing overalls and is carrying a tool case with him. He's standing next to an Unown, who resembles the S letter. The unown looks at the group and responds.

    UNOWN
    Unown!*
    (*It's them!!! It's them! I knew it would happen someday!)

    The boy turns around, defensive, and places his fists up at the group.

    BOY
    Huh? What is it Unown? Who's there?

    ASH
    Hello, sorry to startle you. I'm Ash, from Pallet town. This is May, Max, and Brock.

    Everyone says hello. The boy looks relieved and lowers his arms. He smiles.

    BOY
    I'm Paul, and I'm getting this Gym ready for the next league.

    ASH
    Really? This is going to be a Gym?

    PAUL
    Uh huh. Come next year, you'll be looking at Hoenn's very own Sonic Psychic Gym!

    MAX
    Are you going to be the Gym Leader?

    PAUL
    Yes. I've been around all kinds of psychic Pokemon my entire life thanks to my
    family. And I've managed to capture all sorts of powerful psychic Pokemon...of course
    none of them are as powerful as my new friend, Unown.

    UNOWN
    Unown!*
    (*He wouldn't even know about his sucessfull future Gym if it wasn't for me. But he's kind, and understands psychic Pokemon. I trust him)

    ASH
    So Paul, why were you so startled when we approached you?

    PAUL
    Sorry for acting so freaked out, but Unown has predicted that I need to
    be here today, because something really bad is going to happen. I just hope it doesn't
    mean my gym is in danger.

    ASH
    Your Unown can see into the future?

    PAUL
    Yes, but Unown isn't technically mine. It comes from somewhere else...somewhere I think it
    may want to return to, but can't. I...think it's from the direct opposite side of the world.

    MAY
    I've never seen an Unown as cute as this one! It's adorable!

    Unown floats up to May and happily nuzzles her.

    UNOWN
    Unown!! Unown!!*
    (*You're so sweet! With all that fashion sense it's no wonder Drew is intimidated by you.)

    MAY
    Thanks! ...Wow! I could kind of understand what Unown was saying...in my mind!

    PAUL
    Yes, this Unown has very, very unique powers...they say all Unown are different.

    BROCK
    If that's true, then perhaps we can help you if there's some trouble coming.

    ASH
    Yeah, we have lots of experience in helping people.

    PAUL
    Really? My gym would be eternally grateful!

    UNOWN
    Unown! Unown!*
    (*My vision is still coming to pass. This is all fated to be, so it would seem)

    Everyone turns around and sees...what can only be described as a GAME SHOW STAGE, slowly wheels towards them. There are two contestant sitting areas, a game show host podium, and two large GLASS BOOTHS. The set itself is vibrant and colorful.

    MAY
    What the...?

    ASH
    Huh?

    Suddenly, the Game Show Stage stops, and within seconds Jessie and James (wearing tacky game show host outfits) pop out of nowhere as the Team Rocket music begins.

    JESSIE
    Prepair for trouble as we offer you a choice!

    JAMES
    And make it double, with the sound of your voice!

    JESSIE
    To protect the world from devistation...

    JAMES
    To unite all peoples within our nation.

    Jessie throws off the tacky costume and reveals her stylish Team Rocket wear.

    JESSIE
    To denounce the evils of truth and love!

    James does the same as Jessie.

    JAMES
    To extend our reach to the stars above.

    JESSIE
    Jessie!

    JAMES
    James.

    JESSIE
    Team Rocket, offering choices at the speed of light!

    JAMES
    So pick wisely now, or prepair to fight! Fight! Fight!

    Meowth pops up, holding a microphone. A "correct answer" DING can be heard as he does this.

    MEOWTH
    Meeeowth, that's right!!!

    WOBBUFFET
    Wobbuffet!*
    (*Hi Pikachu)

    ASH/MAY/BROCK/MAX
    Team Rocket!

    PIKACHU
    Pikachu! *
    (*Great, them again. Bored now. Hey Wobbuffet)

    JESSIE
    Now, now, such hostility towards your ultimate heroes!

    ASH
    Huh?

    JAMES
    It's quite clear, were changing our strategy this time around. Were going to let
    YOU decide if it's worth claiming Pikachu as your very own!

    ASH
    What are you talking about, Team Rocket? I love my Pikachu and I always will!

    Suddenly, a large electronic hand grabs Pikachu and places him in BOOTH A.

    PIKACHU
    PIKA!!!*
    (*Dammit!)

    JESSIE
    It's easy. If you want Pikachu, we'll give him back to you, plain as day.

    MEOWTH
    Of course, you might want ta see what's unda Booth B!

    BOOTH B lights up, and Ash GASPS LOUDLY. Behind the booth is RICHIE! His fists are pounding against the glass but it's no use.

    ASH
    RICHIE!

    JESSIE
    Yeesss! And every few seconds he breathes away more of the air. It would
    be such a shame if the oxygen depleted and he was sent into a coma all
    because of you.

    JAMES
    So now it's up to you, twerpy boy! Shall you pick your Pikachu or shall you pick
    this twerp? You can't choose both, in case your wondering.

    CASSIDY (voice)
    How about neither?

    Suddenly, an electronic arm crashes into BOOTH A and nabs Pikachu.

    PIKACHU
    Pika!*
    (*What the...?!?)

    The arm goes to a giant machine, shaped like a Blastoise/tank. The head pops open as the Team Rocket music begins playing again.

    BUTCH
    Prepair for trouble, we'll take it from here!

    CASSIDY
    And make it double...

    BUTCH
    Cuz our motives are crystal clear!

    CASSIDY
    To infect the world with devistation...

    BUTCH
    To blight all people's in every nation.

    CASSIDY
    To denounce the goodness of truth and love.

    BUTCH
    To extend our wrath to the stars above.

    CASSIDY
    Cassidy!

    BUTCH
    The name's BUTCH!

    CASSIDY
    We're Team Rocket, circling the Earth all day and night.

    BUTCH
    So surrender now for you shall surely lose the fight!

    RATICATE
    'Raticate!*
    (*Let's do this)

    Jessie, dejected yet angry, looks at them.

    JESSIE
    I knew we shouldn't have wasted our time with this ridiculous game show themed- trap.
    It would appear we are simply too brilliant and maticulous for this job. Our creativity is truly
    our achilles heal.

    JAMES
    Well what do we do now? They have the Pikachu and we're left with a worthless twerp!

    JESSIE
    Perhaps not.

    Ash glares at Butch and Cassidy, adamant in his demeaner.

    ASH
    Team Rocket, give me back my Pikachu!

    CASSIDY
    Sure, if you so choose...but first you may want to consider all your options.

    Suddenly, Blastoisetank's mouth opens and a tied-up GARY OAK is spat out, left to hang in mid-air limply. Words cannot express the look on Ash's face; with the possible exception of revulsion and dread.

    ASH
    NO! GARY!!!!

    BUTCH
    Now, we can do this the easy way or the hard way.

    Ash goes from furious to very still and calm, his head goes down and his baseball cap covers his face. We slowly pan closer and closer to his face as he listens to the voices around him.

    CASSIDY (voice)
    If you choose Pikachu, your prescious Gary will be crushed by our Blastoise tank's mighty
    jaw...leaving him a worthless Pokemon researcher if I ever saw one.

    JESSIE (voice)
    Yeah, well, if you don't give *us* all your other other Pokemon, we'll be forced to
    carry out our own measures! Remember, Richie can't hold his breath forever!

    CASSIDY (voice)
    Stay out of this, you pretentious traitor!

    JESSIE (voice)
    The nerve! We've been trying to nab that Pikachu for years, we've called ALL THE DIBS!

    We are now very close to Ash's face, which is still stone silent. And then, the scene goes blurry as we begin to see FLASHBACKS.

    ***Gary and Ash, much younger, are playing happily in a field. Gary is chasing after a Psyduck and Ash is laughingly following right behind him***
    ***Gary and Ash fight over a Pokeball they both caught in the river. It breaks in half.***
    ***Ash meets Richie in an elevator, the two hit it off right away***
    ***Ash and Richie happily swim in a lake, carefree***
    ***Gary shows up, at the perfect time, to save Ash and another Trainor from being disqualified by Officer Jenny during the Silver Conference.***
    ***Ash and Richie save Lugia from Team Rocket.***
    ***Gary and Ash work fast to get the Torch to the Silver conference.***
    ***Richie and Ash rush to save their Pikachus***
    ***Gary gives Ash his half of the Pokeball back to Ash***
    ***Richie approaches a fallen, beaten Ash, and extends his hand to him.***
    ***Ash gives Gary's half of his Pokeball back to Gary, who smiles at the sentiment***
    ***Richie and Ash happily stare at each other in the bright light of day***
    ***Gary and Ash stare longingly at each other under the bright light of the moon.***

    Suddenly, Ash spins around...a fierce determination on his face rarely ever before seen. And he now speaks and acts with total clarity.

    ASH
    Brock, I need you to send all your Pokemon at Butch and Cassidy's, give 'em everything you
    got. May, send all yours at Jessie and James'.

    BROCK
    Forretress, Mudkip, Lombre, come out and attack Team Rocket!

    Brock's Pokemon appear and immediately begin attacking Butch and Cassidy.

    MAY
    Beautifly, Skitty, Combusken, Bulbasaur, take the stage!

    May's Pokemoin appear.

    MAY
    Attack Jessie and James with everything you have!

    CASSIDY
    I see you've chosen unwisely. Alright, Sableye, Hitmontop, defend us!

    SABLEYE
    Saaaableeeeye!*
    (*Why does she choose to bring me out in the bright daylight?)

    HITMONTOP
    Hitmontop!*
    (*I will mortally wound anyone who gets in my way!)

    BUTCH
    Get out there, Tentacruel! Drowzee! Show em some teeth!

    TENTACRUEL
    Tentacruuuuel!*
    (*I've been fighting so long...why can't I just die?)

    DROWZEE
    Zzzzzzzeeeee!*
    (*Hey, that Lombre is one fine piece of tail!)

    Sableye, Hotmontop,Tentacruel and Drowzee begin sparring with Brock's Pokemon.

    JESSIE
    I am starting to get angry. Seviper, Dustox, get out there!

    SEVIPER
    SeeeVIIIPEEERR!*
    (*Sooooo huuuuungrryyyyy)

    DUSTOX
    Dustox!*
    (*Yay! My old friend Beautifly is going to battle me again!)

    JAMES
    Cacnea...you too!

    CACNEA
    Cacacac!*
    (*Not without some love first!)

    Cacnea, of course, gives James a big ol' hug, who then proceeds to throw it into the fray.

    JAMES
    Get out there, this battle is momumentally important!

    Seviper, Dustox and Cacnea fight directly with May's Pokemon.

    Jessie grabs Meowth.

    JESSIE
    GET OVER THERE AND GRAB US BACK THAT PIKACHU! WITHOUT IT WE HAVE
    NOTHING!

    Jessie throws Meowth towards the Blastoise tank, who isn't thrilled at first.

    MEOWTH
    WAIT A SEC!!! Fine...this should be a piece of cake. I put the cat in cat burgler!

    Suddenly, Raticate jumps in front of Meowth.

    RATICATE
    Ticate Rat!*
    (*Nothing would make me more proud than to rip your neck open and feast from your blood!)

    MEOWTH
    I 'tink your forgettin' that Meowths love to eat Raticates fa breakfast! FURY SWIPE!

    Meowth fury swipes Raticate, who is taken off guard by Meowth's surprising victory.

    RATICATE
    Cateraticaterat!*
    (*Is it possible this worthless Human talking Meowth has actually gained experience points? But how? His trainors are so...bumbling.)

    MEOWTH
    Worthless? I'll show you worthless!

    As Meowth continues fighting, Ash takes in the massive battling that is occuring. He then grabs his Pokeballs and throws them out.

    ASH
    Taillow, Grovyle, Torkoal, Corphish...come out!

    Ash spins back around, his eyes burning holes into both teams.

    ASH
    Taillow, Grovyle, attack Jessie and James directly. Torkoal, Corphish, attack Butch and
    Cassidy with everything you have.

    And as his Pokemon respond, Ash is already running towards Butch and Cassidy's Blastoisetank.

    May takes a moment from battling to call at him.

    MAY
    Ash, don't! It's too dangerous!

    Meowth manages to yank Pikachu from the robotic hand, and throws it into an electric-proof box. Cassidy spins around and offers Meowth a glair that is every bit as nasty as Jessie's. Meowth smiles innocently.

    CASSIDY
    Ever play skin the cat, Meow....

    Cassidy is suddenly cut off by Torkoal's Overheat, which fries her momentarily, allowing Meowth enough time to escape.

    Ash literally spring jumps off of Tentacruel's head to make it up to the first platform, literally a few feet away from Gary's dangling body.

    GARY (weakly, half-conscious)
    Ash...you're here...

    ASH
    Don't worry Gary! Your going to be okay!

    Ash sees that the rope Gary is tied to goes up to the very top of Blastoise's mouth. Ash backs up, and begins running swiftly. He then jumps as high as he can, and grabs Gary's feet, causing them both to begin swinging on the rope. Ash wastes no time, as he begins climbing up Gary's body with careful determination. When he's up midway, he clenches his legs around Gary's waste as he begins cutting the rope over Gary's head with a small folding knife. Gary, who's face and neck are covered in scratches and bruises, shakes his head slowly.

    GARY
    Somehow...I knew you'd be the one to rescue me...

    ASH
    Watch out, Gary...were gonna...

    It's too late. The rope breaks and Gary and Ash freefall several feet to the ground. Ash recovers quickly and begins untying Gary.

    ASH
    Gary, can you walk?

    Gary begins standing.

    GARY
    Yeah. I think so.

    ASH
    Come on, we have to rescue Richie!

    Ash leads Gary off the Blastoise tank, and the two make way to the Game Show Stage trap, where Jessie and James are busy tying to keep Taillow and Grovyle at arm's length.

    JESSIE
    Don't even think of touching my hair, you green weed catastrophe!

    JAMES
    I HATE peck attack!

    Ash leads Gary to the booth where Richie is being held. Richie is now sitting against the glass, his eyes closed and his breathing spuradic. Ash tries kicking the glass...it won't budge.

    GARY
    Hold on Ash, let me try. Dodrio, come out now!

    DODRIO
    Dodriiiiii*
    (*This better be good. Uh...where are we?)
    (*Looks like Gary found Ash again. Haven't seen him since before we evolved.)
    (*Well, well, well, I think Gary's gonna be in a good mood for awhile)


    GARY
    Dodrio! Tri-Attack that glass!

    DODRIO
    Driiio!*
    (*Uh, whatever)
    (*Well, you heard him)
    (*I'd like to see him do a tri attack.)

    Dodrio attacks the glass, and it shatters into a thousand pieces. Jessie and James do take notice of this.

    JESSIE & JAMES
    AAAAAAHHHHH!!!!!!

    Within seconds, Ash grabs Richie's hand and hoists him up. Richie can hardly walk as he gulps in air then coughs it out. The three boys do make it off the stage and away from the battling.

    ASH
    Now that you two are safe, I need to rescue Pikachu!

    CASSIDY
    Oh no you won't! Sableye, Shadow Ball!

    SABLEYE
    Sssaaableeeye!*
    (*Alright, now were getting down to business! With pleasure, hon!)

    Sableye casts a Shadow Ball, and sends it at the three boys. Ash instictevly places each arm in front of Gary and Ash, for what minute protection it could provide. He closes his eyes and grits his teeth...

    Suddenly, Paul steps in front with Unown.

    PAUL
    Unown, Power Adaptor! Turn that Shadow Ball into something else!

    UNOWN
    Unoooooooooooooowwwwn!*
    (*From the Power of my ancestors, I call to thee. Send me my rightful power and envelop me! Take this attack and make it new, send it flying and see it through. Transform the Shadow Ball into.......Teletransport, and send my enemies to a brand new turf!)

    Unown completely soaks up the Shadow Ball, and begins glowing brightly. Then, it begins spinning rapidly, and unleashes it's Teletransport attack randomly...at Jessie and James and Meowth, who has just returned with Pikachu.

    JESSIE & JAMES & MEOWTH
    AAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

    Jessie instictevly throws Wobbuffet in front.

    JESSIE
    Wobbuffet, prove yourself superior!

    Wobbuffet heroically raises it's arm in pride.

    WOBBUFFET
    Wobba Wobba!*
    (*She actually remembered I can help! Cool!)

    The Teletransport attack flies at Team Rocket, and Wobbuffet begins it's mirror coat.

    WOBBUFFET
    Wobbuffet!*
    (*Ah, strong but nothing I can't handle. Sorry, Unown! I hope this won't hurt you!)

    The attack goes back at Unown with twice the power.

    PAUL
    Unown, use your mirror coat back at them!

    UNOWN
    Unown!*
    (*Um...okay...)

    Unown mirror coats the attack back at Wobbuffet.

    JESSIE
    Wobbuffet, don't let them disrespect your brilliant attack like that!

    WOBBUFFET
    Woooobbaaaa!*
    (*Eh...thanks but this may or may not work)

    Wobbaffet mirror coats the attack back, but with some difficulty.

    JESSIE
    Yay! Success! I can smell that corner office next to the boss!

    Ash grits his teeth as the attack, now huge, come soaring back at them.

    PAUL
    Unown! Mirror coat it again!

    UNOWN
    Uno-Uno-Unown!*
    (*This is getting dangerous! Teletransport attack isn't supposed to get this strong! There's so much energy and power, the attack's starting to become something more! I wish I was home in Ganymede. Nothing like this happens there. People here are too battle-oriented. Even the nice Humans.)

    Unown barely manages to mirror-coat the attack back at Wobbuffet.

    JESSIE
    You can't be serious! Wobbuffet, one more time!

    WOBBUFFET
    Wooobbuuuffeeet!*
    (*Well, perhaps I can prevent us from blasting off...but don't hold your breath)

    Wobbuffet mirror-coats the attack, but the sheer force of it sends Wobbuffet slamming backwards into Jessie, James and Meowth. The Mirror-coat finishes and the attack, now four times it's original power, goes skyrocketing back at Unown. Jessie, James, Meowth, Pikachu and Wobbuffet continue zipping through the air, until they crash into
    the Blastoise tank, which in turn explodes and causes Cassidy, Butch, Sableye, Raticate, Tentacruel, Hitmontop and Drowzee to go blasting off.

    BUTCH/CASSIDY
    Why exactly are *WE* blasting off?

    As the attack nears Unown, Paul makes a quick decision and tackles Unown, throwing it out of the way of the attack.

    BROCK
    Ash! Look out!

    And with that, the powerful attack crashes down onto Ash, Gary, and Richie. A plasma-like shining sweeps over the three as they all fall in slow motion, their faces etched in pain.

    MAY
    ASH! NOOOOO!

    But for Ash, Gary, and Richie...no sound could be heard. Utter, complete silence. And as the three slowly fall to the ground, a bright white light envelops them completely, and with a loud roar, they are gone. Completely.

    As the dust clears and the wind dies down, everyone stands in disbelief at the emptiness of where the three boys once were.

    May's face reflects pure shock, Brock's true dread. Jessie and James stand, quietly, looking over the scene.

    JESSIE
    We.....we won.

    JAMES
    I...guess we did.

    MEOWTH
    Let's go! We got Pikachu, let's get it to da boss and we can end this miserable chapter
    of our lives!

    And with that, Team Rocket is gone, leaving Brock, May, their Pokemon, and Ash's Pokemon to walk slowly to the spot where the three used to be.

    Grovyle begins jumping around the area, panicked.

    GROVYLE
    Grovyle! Grovyle!*
    (*Ash! Where are you? I can't sense my Pokeball anywhere!)

    Taillow begins flying up high, looking for it's trainer

    TAILLOW
    Taiiiiiiillooooooow!*
    (*AAAAAAASSSSSSHHHHHH! Come back!)

    Torkoal begins crying.

    TORKOAL
    Torkoal! Tor!*
    (*Please come back trainor! What will I do without you?)

    May, still in shock, falls to her knees in sorrow.

    MAY
    Brock...is Ash....dead?

    Brock doesn't respond...as he doesn't know what to say.


    NARRATOR
    It would appear to Max, May and Brock, that the situation has suddenly grown
    much more serious. Will Team Rocket finally achieve what they've been striving for?
    And have Ash, Gary, and Richie been wiped off the face of the planet?
    And what of Paul and his Unown...could it already know the answers to these questions?

    Unown looks on, sadly.

    UNOWN
    Unown...

    We open at Team Rocket Headquarters. In GIOVANI'S OFFICE, Jessie and James enter with the
    Pikachu firmly sealed in a box held by Meowth.

    GIOVANI
    So...the recent rumors are true...you finally caught the Pikachu.

    Jessie, all pleasant smiles, elegantly waltzes to GIOVANI's desk.

    JESSIE
    Yes! And, as I'm sure you've heard the saying...the pupils totally taught
    the teachers a thing or two!

    JAMES
    Well...Butch did try, he just failed.

    MEOWTH
    Luckily we had a....great fallback plan after they blasted off!

    GIOVANI stares contently at Pikachu, who stares back in fear.

    GIOVANI
    Excellent.

    JESSIE
    So, which will it be? Corner office?

    JAMES
    Large expense account?

    MEOWTH
    Huge promotions?

    GIOVANI
    Even better! A new assignment.

    JESSIE/JAMES/MEOWTH
    HOOORAAAA......huh?

    GIOVANI grins and tosses them a paper with some child's picture and profile on it.

    GIOVANI
    That child is training an entire family of Deoxis. I want you to capture them all!

    JESSIE/JAMES/MEOWTH
    DEOXIS??!!!?!?

    Jessie freezes as an incredibly large mallet smashes into her. James freezes as a heard of Tauro clobber over him. Meowth contemplates.

    MEOWTH
    Wow, if Pikachu took this long, we'll end up getting blasted off about....
    800 different ways before we end up catching them. ....AAAAHHHH!

    Meowth is frozen solid in fear...then the frozen Meowth breaks into tiny pieces.

    In reality, the three faint in front of GIOVANI's desk. GIOVANI rolls his eyes and picks up his phone.

    GIOVANI
    Giovani. I have...the Pikachu. Yes, I do believe it remembers me from it's Pichu days.
    We'll begin the experiments on it. Not only has it evolved, it's far surpassed the highest
    level a Raichu can go. I suspect...Ketchum was partly the cause of this. No...he
    won't be a problem now.

    Giovani frowns as he says this.

    Fade to BLACK.

    Pokemon: <3Shi
    Chapter 2


    We open on a Blank screen with the episode title appearing; WELCOME TO GANYMEDE, ENJOY THE VIEW!

    ASH (voice)
    Welcome to Ganymede, enjoy the view!


    We cut to Ash, opening his eyes wide and looking around.

    ASH
    Huh?

    Ash slowly raises his head, and looks around to see he is in a thick forest. He rests his head back, and realizes his head is propped against something.

    ASH
    Huuuh?

    Ash raises himself, and realizes his feet are straddling over something as well. He focuses, and sees that his feet are draped over Richie.

    ASH
    Richie...?

    Ash turns, and sees he had been resting his head on Gary's back.

    ASH
    Gary!

    Ash manages to stand, and he begins shaking both of them.

    ASH
    Wake up! Gary! Richie! Come on!

    Richie rolls his head to the side. Gary opens his eyes.

    RICHIE
    *groan* What...

    GARY
    ...Ashy?

    Ash pauses momentarily, and sighs with relief that both are okay.

    We fade to a few minutes later. Ash has propped both Richie and Gary up against a large oak tree. Both seem to be weaker than Ash.

    RICHIE
    Wow, I feel really aweful.

    GARY
    Me too...

    Ash, slightly wobbly, stands and clenches his fist in front of him. Bright determination on his face.

    ASH
    Well, don't worry about it. As soon as you both have recovered, were going to track
    down Team Rocket and get back my Pikachu!

    Ash stumbles and grabs his forehead, still obviously a little woozy, and sits back down Indian-style.

    ASH
    We should really rest a little first.

    RICHIE
    You got it!

    GARY
    Sure Ash...one thing, I thought I saw that Gym Leader from Pewter City you always
    hang with and some other people. Where did they go?

    Ash looks around.

    ASH
    I...I don't know. I can't find Brock, May, Max, OR any of my Pokemon!

    Gary suddenly gasps slightly and his eyes widen.

    GARY
    Why are you hanging out with Mai?

    Ash pauses momentarily, then offers Gary a small wry smile.

    ASH
    I'm not talking about your sister, Gary.

    Gary nods once and a small smile appears as Richie looks over to him. He looks pleasantly surprised.

    RICHIE
    Wait a second...Oak...Mai...I can't believe I never made the connection!

    Gary glances at Richie momentarily, then closes his eyes, smirks, and grunts.

    GARY
    Yeah, yeah, my grandpa...

    RICHIE
    No! Your Mai Oak's little brother! I can't believe it!

    Gary suddenly breaks his smirk and looks at Richie again, this time with a hint of shock and annoyance.

    GARY
    Excuse me?

    Richie smiles widely, his eyes glossy with excitement.

    RICHIE
    She mentions you once or twice! That definately makes you cool to me!

    ASH
    Uh...yeah, Richie. How do you know Mai?

    Richie's face lights up, indicating he's clearly passionate about the subject.

    RICHIE
    Oh, please! I wish I could have the honor of saying I know her! She's only THE
    authority when it comes to Pokemon Myths and Legends! I've read all her books
    and I've even managed to catch a few of her television specials!

    Ash and Gary look at each other in confusion.

    ASH
    Mai's on t.v.?

    GARY
    She's written books?

    Richie IMAGINES Mai, wearing an old-style Japanese schoolgirl uniform, and bearing a look of fierce determination, braving her way through swamps, blizzards, volcano eruptions, earthquakes, tidal waves, bandits and rabid Pokemon.

    RICHIE (voice)
    She has collected over two hundred anchient myths and legends about Pokemon from all over.
    She diligently forces herself to treacherous locations to obtain them!

    Richie IMAGINES Mai, standing proud with a look of dignity swept over her face, holding a manuscript above her head.

    RICHIE (voice)
    She always makes sure the stories she gathers are as authentic as possible, and she never
    leaves a stone unturned!

    Richie then looks at Gary again.

    RICHIE
    You kind of look like her, too. It must be wierd having a famous older sister.

    Gary seems even more annoyed, but he simply closes his eyes and leans his head against the tree.

    GARY
    HEY! When I was a Pokemon trainer, I wiped the floor with Gym Leaders! And I was famous,
    I just never really got into it, thank you. Pokemon is my passion. Not interviews.

    RICHIE
    If that's true, how come I've never heard of you?

    Gary raises one eye at Richie, grunts, but keeps his lips pursed.

    ASH
    It's true, Richie! Gary was an awesome trainer and people always made a big deal about
    him being Professor Oak's grandson. I heard it all the time too.

    GARY
    Besides! Who needs old fables and bed-time stories when what I'm currently doing is
    ten times better!

    RICHIE
    What could possibly be better than learning about mysterious and legendary Pokemon?

    Gary grins.

    GARY
    How about reinventing history using Pokemon DNA! Extinct Pokemon will be a thing of
    the past.

    Ash and Gary both gasp.

    ASH
    Is...that possible?

    GARY
    Sure is. All in a day's work when your a Pokemon Researcher!

    ASH
    Awesome.

    RICHIE
    Well...sure it's cool and all, but hardly as exciting as learning about the history of the Pokemon.
    Archeology is fascinating.

    Gary shakes his head.

    GARY
    I'll take a state-of-the-art laboratory over a dank cave that nobody cares about any day
    of the week!

    Gary and Richie momentarily exchange aggrivated glances at each other. Ash stands.

    ASH
    Allright, let's get going. I don't want Team Rocket to get too far ahead of us.

    Ash extends both arms out, and helps both friends up. Ash places his hands to his mouth and begin shouting.

    ASH
    BROOOOCK? MAAAAAAY? MAAAAAAX? Where are they?

    RICHIE
    If were lost, we should try to find a Pokemon center right away!

    GARY
    Thank you, Captain Obvious. Any idea how we'll find one?

    Richie thinks a moment. Gary smirks at him, his eyes full of gloating as he crosses his arms.

    RICHIE
    Hmmmm....

    Suddenly, Richie's face lights up and he smiles warmly as he reaches behind his waiste and retrieves a Pokeball.

    RICHIE
    Go! Happy!

    Gary looks at Richie oddly as a Butterfree exits the ball.

    HAPPY
    Buuuuutteeerfreeeeee!*
    (*Wow! This is, like, the most perfect day yet! Life is grand!)

    RICHIE
    Hi Happy! Would you mind flying up high and looking for a Pokemon center?

    HAPPY
    Freeeeeeeee!*
    (*Like, you are the upmost! I just love helping you sooo much! Tee-hee!)

    Richie smiles warmly.

    RICHIE
    Thanks a lot!

    Gary closes his eyes and lowers his head while Butterfree flies upwards.

    GARY
    You can't be serious.

    Richie looks at Gary, a look of pure puzzlement awashed over his face.

    RICHIE
    How do you mean?

    GARY
    You mean you actually nickname your Pokemon and ask them if they'll follow
    your orders? Come on, what kind of trainer are you?

    Richie looks at Gary with slight shock.

    RICHIE
    How can you say that? Pokemon are intelligent and beautiful! If I thought
    for even a moment that my Pokemon didn't like battling, I would give it up in a second!

    Gary keeps his head low and continues smirking. He places his hands inside his pockets.

    GARY
    Hmmph. I guess I never understood third-rate Pokemon trainers like yourself.

    Richie's mouth opens wide as he clenches his fists. Ash seems surprised by this exchange, but remains a silent observer.

    RICHIE
    WHAT?!? THIRD-RATE POKE...

    Gary suddenly opens his eyes and ***** his head over to Richie, his grin never leaving his face.

    GARY
    What's the point of training Pokemon if your just going to make them soft? Even Ash realizes
    that toughness wins battles.

    Richie shakes his head.

    RICHIE
    Yeah, well Ash also realizes that strong bonds with your Pokemon are important too! Right?

    Gary and Richie both look at Ash. Ash laughs lightly, closes his eyes, blushes, and scratches the back of his neck with his right hand.

    ASH
    Uhyeahbothmethodsareawesome...hey look! Happy's coming back!

    Sure enough, Happy flutters back down to Richie and happily twirls about.

    HAPPY
    Teeerfrrreeeee!*
    (*I found a building!)

    RICHIE
    Ya find something, Happy? Lead the way!

    Ash smiles.

    ASH
    Awesome! With any luck we'll find Officer Jenny and she can help.

    And with that, the three take off in a quick pace.

    ***

    Meanwhile, Jessie is sitting in the Meowth balloon. Her face reflects that she is troubled...her eyes portray a somberness as she longingly looks out amongst the countryside. James and Meowth both look depressed as well, sitting Indian-style with their chins resting on their hands.

    MEOWTH
    Wow...she's sat like that since we took off.

    JAMES
    Well, if I had to guess, the joyful sense of newness has diminished the more she thinks
    about what we did to the twerp and his friends.

    MEOWTH
    Yeah, I guess I've been feeling kinda bad about that too. I've known da twoip almost
    as long as I've known you two.

    Suddenly, Jessie breaks down and begins crying.

    JESSIE
    How can life be so unfair and cruel?

    James and Meowth lower their head.

    JESSIE
    We should be living the ultra good life right this very minute! Sipping on expensive drinks and
    lapping up the lives of luxury! But now we have to start all over again...

    Jessie spins around furociously, startling James and Meowth.

    JESSIE
    HOW ARE WE EVER GOING TO CAPTURE ONE LET ALONE FIVE DEOXIS??!?!?!!?!?
    CAN IT EVEN BE ACCOMPLISHED?

    JAMES
    I have to admit, this isn't the treasure at the end of the rainbow I'd envisioned.

    JESSIE
    And perhaps...I might feel slightly bad for the twerp. But, the fact that he had us electrocuted
    hundreds of times negates my mourning period somewhat.

    JAMES
    I kind of miss the thunderbolts...they always gave my hair that extra bounce.

    MEOWTH
    I kind of miss dressing up in costumes so ridiculously obvious that only da twoip could be fooled.
    We'll never get DAT luxury again!

    JESSIE
    I'll miss the Pokemon Contests. I still feel I'm leaving my hoards of fans with bated breath
    as they patiently long for my grand return to claim the Grand Festival Queen Ribbon!

    JAMES
    Yeah...sure.

    Jessie now seems to have a fire in her eyes, and her fists clench.

    JESSIE
    I'm having a thought, James. What if we were to officially change fields in Team Rocket to
    permanent rogues. I feel my talents as a famous and mega-beautiful Pokemon Coordinater
    are already being wasted!

    JAMES
    But if we return to the Hoenn region, the twerp may find us and demand his Pikachu back!

    MEOWTH
    Well, I know where Pikachu is being held...

    Meowth and James offer each other a small smile. Jessie lowers her eyelids partly and offers James a deadpan expression.

    JESSIE
    James, don't tell me you'd actually want to steal Pikachu again! The one thing we've done
    right all these years!

    JAMES
    Well, the Boss doesn't have to find out...I'd feel a lot better if we actually gave it back.

    JESSIE
    What?!? You wouldn't want the Pikachu to join OUR team?

    JAMES
    Jessie, that Pikachu would never listen to us in a hundred billion trillion years.

    MEOWTH
    It'd probably just thunderbolt us whenever it got da chance.

    Jessie sighs.

    JESSIE
    True. Well then, have we agreed to ditch the Deoxys kamikaze mission and go back
    to my adoring fans?

    JAMES
    And rescue Pikachu?

    Jessie sneers, then rolls her eyes.

    JESSIE
    Fine, and rescue the electo-rat.

    James and Meowth smile, and raise their hands. Wobbuffet pops out and raises it's arm.

    WOBBUFFET
    Woooobbuuuuuuffeeeeeet!*
    (*Yeah! I feel returning Pikachu will grant us HUGE Karmic brownie points)

    ***

    We return to Ash, Gary and Richie as the three continue walking.

    ASH
    Wow, I don't recognize anything. Could the impact have really sent us this far?

    RICHIE
    I certainly feel like we were blasted pretty hard.

    Gary suddenly stops and points forward.

    GARY
    Hey! Look at that!

    Ash and Richie look forward, and see a Pokemon near some berry bushes, hovering very close over the ground. On first glance, it appears to be a large horn, with one side wide and the other shrinks down and wraps into a twirled ball. Two glowing eyes can be seen from the darkness of inside the large end.

    POKEMON
    Coituscopia!*
    (*Eatin' berries, tra la la...eatin' berries...)

    ASH
    Whoa, what kind of Pokemon is that?

    Ash opens his Pokedex.

    POKEDEX
    No available data.

    ASH
    Huh?

    RICHIE
    Wow! An undiscovered Pokemon!

    BOY (voice)
    Please! Coituscopia is one of the most famous Pokemon around!

    Ash, Gary, and Richie spin around and see a boy, way younger than them, with short blonde hair and plain clothing. His arms are crossed as he smiles.

    BOY
    Sorry to startle you...but if your unfamiliar with Coituscopia, you should know that it'll attack anyone who wants something.

    ASH/RICHIE/GARY
    What?

    They turn back around, and all three GASP in shock! Coituscopia's eyes look angry, and it has now targeted on the three.

    COITUSCOPIA
    Coooooiiiiituuuuuus!*
    (*If I have ever seen three guys who wanted each other more, It was most likely at least four lifetimes ago. ATTACK!)

    Coituscopia closes it's eyes, and suddenly white gelatenous acid pours out in spuratic eruptions. All three scream in unison.

    ASH/RICHIE/GARY
    RUUUUUUUN!

    They take off, barely missing the torrent amount of gloop.

    BOY
    Whoa! You three just dodged a Spastic Gloop attack! Your lucky! It can burn like crazy if it gets in your eyes!
    Come on, it's not safe!

    They follow the boy, who begins walking down a different path. Ash follows up to the boy, while Gary and Richie both stay behind, watching Ash run.

    ASH
    Hey, thanks a lot! I'm Ash, from Pallet Town! These are my good friends Gary and Richie.

    BOY
    Hi, I'm Jack. I've never heard of a Pallet Town.

    ASH
    Well I'm not suprised, it's pretty far away. Say, you wouldn't know where the nearest
    Pokemon center is, would you?

    JACK
    Hmmm....what's a Pokemon center?

    Ash stops, his face reflecting a classic WTF? moment. Gary and Richie stop moments after, also shocked.

    ASH
    How can you not know what a Pokemon center is? Every town has one! It's where nurse Joy
    heals all the injured Pokemon!

    JACK
    Are you okay? Your sounding a little crazy now.

    ASH
    What do you mean?

    JACK
    I've been around this entire tri-city area and I've never heard of any of that!

    GARY
    Well, what do you do when your Pokemon get injured, make them heal themselves?

    JACK
    No! We take them to a Pokemon Multimall, duh!

    Jack suddenly looks at Ash and the other two with newfound curiousity.

    JACK
    Actually, your clothes are strange-looking. Are you...are you three outsiders?

    Ash turns and looks at Gary and Richie then back at Jack.

    ASH
    What do you mean? I've been traveling in the Hoenn region for awhile now, I just seem to be
    a little off-track.

    JACK
    A little? I've never heard of anyplace called Hoenn. Your near the East Pearl Beach...

    Ash, Gary, and Richie stair blankly at Jack, not comprehending what the young boy has realized.

    JACK
    ...on the very-much-isolated Island of Ganymede? Your not on any of this planet's
    main continents...and there's no passage to or from the Island, how did you get here?

    Ash, Gary, and Richie all express pure shock and even a little terror at the revelation.

    ASH/RICHIE/GARY
    HUH/WHAT/WHAAA...?!?

    ***

    We cut to Team Rocket Headquarters, inside the Deep Probe Research Laboratory. Pikachu is trapped inside a cage, it's face looking incredibly sad.

    PIKACHU
    Piiika.*
    (*I can't believe Ash didn't rescue me first! I could have thunderbolted them away so quick and saved his damned 'friends'.)

    Several Team Rocket minions and scientists dot the room. Suddenly, the doors open and two individuals step inside. At first glance, they are Butch and Cassidy. HOWEVER, closer examination reveals it's Jessie and James in disguise. A rather badly Raticate-costumed Meowth enters after them. Pikachu's ears perk up.

    PIKACHU
    Piiika?*
    (*What kind of Pokemon is...wait a sec...)

    The minions and scientists look up. The Team Rocket music begins playing. Jessie and James stand silent, posed with grins. After a few moments, Jessie frowns and leans over to James.

    JESSIE (whisper)
    James...er, Butch...you start!

    JAMES
    Oh, right. Sorry. *cough*

    The Team Rocket music begins again.

    JAMES (in a gruffy, Butch-esque voice)
    Prepair for Trouble, were all that and more!

    JESSIE (in a passable Cassidy voice)
    And make it double!

    JAMES
    ...because following orders is a bore!

    JESSIE
    To infect the world with devistation!

    JAMES
    To uni...blight all people's in every nation.

    Jessie looks at James with annoyance.

    JESSIE
    To whack 'Butch' a new one if he messes up once more.

    JAMES
    To make 'Cassidy' see that this rhyming's abhored!

    JESSIE
    Cassidy!

    JAMES
    Butch!

    JESSIE
    Were Team Rocket, circling the Earth and all that great jazz.

    JAMES
    So surrender that Pikachu now, and prepair to let us pass!

    MEOWTH
    Raticate, that's right!

    Wobbuffet, disguised badly as Sableye, pops up.

    WOBBUFFET
    Wobbuffet!*
    (*Hi Pikachu!)

    SCIENTIST
    Cassidy! Butch! What are you two doing here?

    JESSIE
    Were...uh...here to transport that Pikachu outta here and back into the waiting hands
    of the boss!

    SCIENTIST
    Uh...do you have any clearance for such an abrupt change of protocol?

    JESSIE
    The NERVE! Do you know who we are? Cassidy and Butch! The unstylish and
    bland power duo! Now do as we say...OR ELSE!

    Suddenly, several of the scientists jump and scrambled to the cage, getting ready to hand it over. The minions all salute. One scientist, frazzled, whispers quietly to his associate, a young a bland female scientist.

    SCIENTIST 2(whisper)
    Whoa, I have never seen Cassidy so violent or angry before.

    SCIENTIST 3(whisper)
    Yeah, if she needs to borrow some Midol, she just has to ask.

    Jessie and James look at each other, pleasantly suprised their plan is working.

    ***

    Back on Ganymede, Ash sits on a large rock, his face seemingly in shock, as he watches a distant stream. The calm, serene setting allowing Ash to delve deeper into his newfound misery.

    ASH
    Pikachu...

    Nearby, Gary leans against a tree, looking rather depressed himself. Richie, holding a stick, traces it into the dirt as he sits idly on the grass.

    RICHIE
    Wow, we may never see our friends or families again.

    Gary seems slightly frustrated.

    GARY
    This is just great! What did we do to deserve this?

    Gary suddenly looks over at Ash, and sees that his head is now hanging really low. He immediately stands, and walks over to Ash. He sits next to him, only a few centimeters away. The young Oak looks over to Ash, and sees tears are streaming down the trainer's face. Gary half-closes his eyes and lowers his head a bit too.

    GARY
    I'm sorry about all this Ashy. I promise you, if there's any way off this island, we'll find it.

    Ash simply nods his head twice, and without any thought, rests his head on Gary's sholder as he continues sobbing silently. Gary, after a few reflective moments, rests his head on Ash's. He stares straight forward for a few seconds, then closes his eyes.

    Jack sighs as he sits across from Richie, obviously concerned but also a little bored.

    JACK
    I'm...sorry about having to be the one to tell you all this...but I can't stay much longer.
    My parents are expecting me and my sisters soon...your all welcome to come to
    dinner, my parents would probably want to meet you! None of us have ever met
    outsiders before!

    Richie looks over to Ash and Gary and, seeing them in their rather odd-position of mutual grief, can only manage to widen his eyes, almost to the point of shock. However, he quickly brushes it off and turns back to Jack.

    RICHIE
    Yeah, I think we would all appreciate that. Thank you.

    Gary and a downtrodden Ash are now standing behind Richie.

    GARY
    Yes, we would all be honored.

    ASH
    Thanks...

    Jack nods, and begins walking. Richie stands, looks back at Ash for a moment with uncertainty, then braces his lips and turns back around, walking. Gary and Ash begin walking, a slight pace slower, and Gary places his arm around Ash's back, supporting him as they venture into the evening sunset.

    NARRATOR
    With the startling revelation that Ash and friends are now on the exotic, remote Island of Ganymede.
    with no hope of rescue, all three are facing dark times ahead. However, with the introduction of Jack
    the three now head off to meet Jack's parents. What other startling revelations are waiting for Ash,
    Gary, and Richie? Even they couldn't imagine what lay before them.

    It is pretty good. I liked the parts with Gary, Ash, and Richie the best. The flashbacks were good too. XD, the swim in the lake.

    I really like it a lot. I like the flashbacks too. I would suggest to trim it down a bit. There is a lot to read, but I'm an English major so I'm used to that. Good job

    We open on an evening sunset, whose light barely crests a giant forest below it. And, inside this forest, a group of four are traveling. Leading the way is Jack, behind him Richie and his Butterfree, Happy, and then finally Ash and Gary. All four carry less-than-enchanted demeaners. Jack notices a small trail protruding from the main path, and points at it.

    JACK
    Okay, there's the trail. We have to stop for just a bit. I have to get my sisters.

    Neither three Pokemon trainers say anything, but merely follow him. He leads them to a sparkling lake, the orange ripples reflecting off the setting sun. Richie, Gary, and even Ash take a moment to take in the pleasant scenery. Jack looks around, then his eyes widen and he nods to his left.

    JACK
    There they are!

    About sixty yards away under a large tree, four girls, all roughly Ash and friend's ages, sit in a circle with their hands combined. In unison, they are all chanting.

    GROUP
    Earth, air, fire, water, lightness and dark, creation and rot.
    Earth, air, fire, water, lightness and dark, creation and rot...

    As Jack begins walking towards them, Richie exchanges WTF? glances with Gary and Ash.

    GARY
    This is kinda creepy.

    RICHIE
    Yeah, why would they be doing that out here when it's getting dark?

    Jack calls out to his sisters.

    JACK
    Shatiqua! Tangina! Come on!

    The group stops chanting, and two girls stand. One girl, Shatiqua, is a stylishly dressed brunette with big, bright blue eyes. Her sister, Tangina, is dressed a little more tacky, wearing odd, clunky necklaces and earrings. Her blonde hair is braided in three areas. Shatiqua frowns at Jack.

    SHATIQUA
    Haven't we told you not to bother us while were familiarizing the elements?
    You always...

    Shatiqua is cut off by Tangina, who shoves her aside and grins at Jack pleasantly.

    TANGINA
    Who's your friends, Jack?

    Shatiqua looks over at the three boys as the two other girls quickly stand to see who she's referring to. Within moments, all four girls are smiling widely at the three handsome teens who have shown up.

    JACK
    This is Richie, Ash and Gary...I've invited them home with us.

    One of the girls, with pink hair pulled into a ponytail on top of her head, steps forward and grins at Gary.

    TATIANA
    Hello there! I'm Tatiana, future Psi Pokemon Champion and possibly your future girlfriend!

    Gary simply looks at the girl with trepidation, and slight revulsion can be seen through his thin smile.

    GARY
    Uh...hi.

    The last girl, NADENE, giggles at Richie. Her outfit, and hair, are green.

    NADENE
    I'm Nadene! I was just asking my spirit guide if a cutie in green could possibly show up soon,
    low and behold!

    Richie takes an instinctive step back towards Ash.

    RICHIE
    Hi, that's...interesting.

    Nadene watches Happy land on Richie's sholder, and suddenly Nadene's eyes go wide with excitement.

    NADENE
    Oh! Oh! What....is that!

    RICHIE
    This is my good friend, Happy.

    NADENE
    She is just THE CUTEST Pokemon I've ever seen!

    HAPPY
    ButterFREEEEEEEEEE!*
    (*Like, OMG, I think Nadene is my soulmate! We, like, totally are on a wavelength! Yayness!)

    Richie suddenly smiles wide in agreement, nodding.

    RICHIE
    I know! Isn't she?

    Nadene, and the other girls, take notice and momentary pause at Richie's off-beat response.

    Tangina walks up to Ash, cooing at the cute, albeit short, trainer.

    TANGINA
    Well, since my friends called shots on your friends, I guess that leaves you and me, right?

    ASH
    Huh?

    Shatiqua and Jack watch in wonder as the three girls manage to poke and prod the newcomers with immature delight.

    SHATIQUA
    Tangina, have mother and father taught you nothing about crass behavior and manners?
    Please, show some upbringing. Tatiana, Nadene...girls, get a grip.

    Tangina, Tatiana, and Nadene all stop their boisterous pre-cuddling of the boys.

    TANGINA
    Sorry about that...it's just their all so cute!

    Gary, Ash and Richie all blush, uncomfortable.

    TATIANA
    I'm loving all of your unique taste in clothes and hair...I've never seen anything
    quite like them.

    GARY
    That's cuz were not from here.

    SHATIQUA
    So where are you three from?

    ASH
    The Kanto Region...

    SHATIQUA
    Where's that?

    JACK
    That's why I'm bringing them home. Shatiqua, they're not from this island.

    Shatiqua gasps. The other three girls do as well.

    SHATIQUA
    But how did you get here? Nobody visits this Island as far as I know.

    GARY
    It was a very powerful psychic attack from an Unown...it sent us here.

    RICHIE
    We have no idea how far away we are from where we were, which was Hoenn.

    GARY
    ` And we don't know how to get back, either.

    NADENE
    Um, HELLO! This is an ISLAND! Nobody leaves!

    Ash lowers his head slightly. This angers Gary a little, who looks at Nadene with some annoyance.

    GARY
    Hmmph. Well then it's obvious you've all been stuck on an island because there
    isn't anything Ash and I can't accomplish when we put our minds to it!

    Richie looks at Gary, eyes widened.

    RICHIE
    Hey, I'm resourceful too.

    Gary smirks as he ***** his head to the side, closing his eye furthest away from Richie as he talks.

    GARY
    You also kind of smell.

    Richie, completely taken by surprise, is literally knocked over flat from the insult.

    SHATIQUA
    I've never heard of anyone leaving the island...doesn't mean no one ever did.
    Well, I guess it's time we get going.

    NADENE
    Like, we NEVER even got to, YOU KNOW, familiarize the ELEMENTS.

    TATIANA
    Yeah, how are we going to enter the Psi Battles without any elemental spirits
    to guide us?

    Ash, Richie and Gary all look at each other in shocked confusion.

    ASH/RICHIE/GARY
    Elemental Spirits?

    Suddenly, the ground around them all begins to shake violently.

    RICHIE
    What's happening?

    The lake near them begins to boil, the entire body resembling a large jucuzzi, complete with steam rising.

    SHATIQUA
    No way! Did we do it?

    The wind is now roaring, and the rumbling in the ground grows stronger. Ash and Gary grab each other for bearing.

    ASH/GARY
    Aaahhh!

    Richie, about to fall over, is grabbed by Nadene, who sticks his head right into her large chest as she clamps her arms around him. Richie, now more terrified than before, gags with disgust and uses a forceful jolt from the ground to knock him backwards, right into Ash and Gary. All three fall to the ground.

    ASH/RICHIE/GARY
    AAAAAAHHHHHH!!!

    Pokemon: <3Shi
    Chapter 3

    We open on a Blank screen with the episode title appearing; SOCIAL BUTTERFREE!

    ASH (voice)
    Social Butterfree!

    We cut back to Gary, Ash and Richie as they are now all clamped to each other, terrified as the earthquake and wind grows stronger. Jack has fallen over, but his eyes are wide with excitement...he seems to be aware of what's going on. The four girls look estatic.

    NADENE
    How TOTALLY in luck we ARE!

    A vibrant white light appears in several areas, and a chime-like melody can be heard.

    GARY
    Whoa, this is incredible!

    Four white lights grow larger, and float near the four girls. Then, they morph into graceful yet frightening Pokemon. As abruptly as the commotion began, it ended. The only evidence anything paranormal had happoned is a slight steam emerging from the lake.

    The light near Shatiqua looks like a giant blue rain drop with no characteristics except for two angry red eyes, piercing forward.

    SHATIQUA
    Wow, the fates sent me an Ocea!

    The light next to Tatiana morphs into, of all things, a large black 8-Ball. With a black 8 over a white circle on one side, and a clear circle on the other.

    TATIANA
    Oh my, an Anserask!

    The light near Tangina turns into what looks like a simplistic version of the Grim Reaper. The figure has a hooded black robe, the face cannot be seen. The hands and feet, however, are bones.

    TANGINA
    I was sent a Crossova! I'm so blessed!

    The light near Nadene turns into a classic looking voo-doo doll, with X's for eyes, stiches for mouths, and three random pins stuck in various parts of it's body.

    NADENE
    Like, WOW!! My, like, HEART IS MADE OF NEON now because I got a Voodelux!
    It's the UPMOST!

    Jack stands, his face now lit with excitement.

    JACK
    I can't believe I actually saw an elemental blessing! All of your Pokemon are GREAT!
    All of them are somewhat rare.

    TATIANA
    Especially my Anserask! I never dreamed I'd get one so rare!

    ANSERASK
    Anserask!*
    (*I think therefor I am. But how I think is still a mistery even to me. And if psychics can read my mind, does that not make me also a part of them?)

    Shatiqua smiles warmly at her new Pokemon.

    SHATIQUA
    Rarity means nothing if the Pokemon isn't specifically right for you...Ocea,
    I think this is the start of a beautiful friendship.

    OCEA
    OOOOOOOOOOOcccccccceaaaaaaaa!*
    (*Oh, you've been my trainer for six lifetimes now, I think 'start' is totally inaccurate. 'Beautiful' too, I might add...)

    JACK
    We should probably go now. We're already past dinnertime.

    Shatiqua turns to the three newcomers and smiles.

    SHATIQUA
    Our parents will be so excited to meet you three. Come on!

    We cut to a rather impressive looking three story house in the forest. Inside, the three siblings enter before Ash, Gary, and Richie.

    JACK
    Mom, were home!

    An elegantly graceful woman appears into the foyier. Draped in furs and adorned with priceless jewelry, she waltzes over to them with an air of mystery about her.

    WOMAN
    Well hello children. You all look healthy. Dinner has been prepaired.

    SHATIQUA
    Mom, this is Richie, Ash and Gary...there not from Ganymede.

    WOMAN
    You three...have chi!

    GARY
    Um, hello.

    ASH
    Hi...

    RICHIE
    Hello, and you are?

    WOMAN
    I've been known by many names, over the passage of time. Currently, you may call me DeLoris.

    Ash, Gary and Richie all exchange glances. DeLoris' demeaner doesn't change, but she does serenely smile.

    DELORIS
    Come. Dinner has been prepaired.

    Shatiqua smiles at the three as her siblings head to the kitchen.

    SHATIQUA
    Sorry about my mom, she's kind of old-school about be at one with
    nature...you understand.

    Richie looks at Shatiqua with total absurdity before turning back to Ash and Gary..

    RICHIE
    Yeah, completely. So guys, how about we find a place to sleep outside and I can pitch a tent?

    Shatiqua smiles gleefully.

    SHATIQUA
    Oh, stop! She's not THAT in tune with herself. You should see Nadene's mom. Come on!

    Richie looks at Ash, and the two shrug, then the three follow into the kitchen. However, as soon as they enter, a large man jumps directly in front of them, stomping down onto the ground with a large thud. The three jump in reaction. The man is wearing all black. He has a large build, quite muscular.

    MAN
    Well, well, well, looks like my daughter Tangina wasn't telling tall tales again, you three ARE
    strange-looking! Call me Trent, young fellows.

    ASH
    Huh?

    TRENT
    Please, come! Sit, enjoy the...interesting dinner my lovely wife has provided.

    Richie, Ash and Gary all sit.

    TRENT
    Tangina also mentioned something about you three being off-islanders.

    RICHIE
    Yes, we arrived here suddenly when an Unown's attack accidentally hit us.

    TRENT
    A Teleportation attack, huh? Well they can be a fairly moving experience, huh?

    Gary turns to Ash.

    GARY
    Ugh. Are you not hungry?

    ASH
    No, not really...

    TRENT
    Is something the matter, young man?

    Ash turns to Trent, his eyes showing hints of sadness.

    ASH
    ...Yes sir. Before we got here, I lost my Pikachu. My best Pokemon and friend.

    DELORIS
    Pokemon...have chi.

    TRENT
    Well then, I suppose you want off this island then, don't you!

    Ash's eyes widen.

    ASH
    Whoa, you know how we could?

    Trent nods with excitement.

    TRENT
    I DON'T HAVE THE FAINTEST IDEA!

    Ash chokes and falls out of his chair.

    RICHIE
    Well, maybe we could come up with some sort of plan to build a boat?

    Ash climbs back into his chair.

    ASH
    Yeah!

    GARY
    Yeah, why do *I* get the feeling that Richie and sea men don't mix!

    Richie looks at Gary, smiling.

    RICHIE
    I could totally work it on the water!

    Gary grunts as he sips his water, his eyes now locked on Richie's.

    GARY
    Ha! Like how you work it on land? Big deal!

    Richie continues smiling as he picks up a breadstick to eat.

    RICHIE
    Oh, you have no idea.

    TRENT
    There won't be working anything on the water, I'm afraid. Boatbuilding is forboden.

    Richie and Gary both break from their conversation and look at Trent, confused. Ash just lets his mouth gape open.

    ASH
    Uh!!! Why not?

    TRENT
    Because that would require chopping down trees, and we don't do that here.

    GARY
    What? How uber-lame is that?

    RICHIE
    Come on, surely nobody would miss just a few.

    TRENT
    Oh believe me, my green-glad friend, cutting down but ONE tree would bring
    disastrous consequences for all of us.

    GARY
    What are you muttering about? Isn't this house made of wood?

    TRENT
    Yes, as are most houses...but the wood is from ancient fallen trees, which is okay.

    RICHIE
    Are you making this up?

    TRENT
    WHAT? CUTTING DOWN BUT ONE TREE WILL ENRAGE ALL THE
    PSYCHIC POKEMON LIKE NEVER BEFORE SEEN!!!!!

    DELORIS
    Trees...are calming to the soul.

    Ash looks down again, discouragement sweeping over his face. He pushes his plate away from him.

    ASH
    I guess I'm not feeling so hungry. I...think I'm ready for bed.

    TRENT
    Well, ha ha ha, that's totally understandable considering your situation!

    TANGINA
    Our spare bedroom is one floor up, last door on the left.

    Ash stands, and nods.

    ASH
    Thanks...

    Ash walks towards the staircase. Gary and Richie look at each other momentarily, then both stand at the same time.

    TRENT
    HOLD IT RIGHT THERE!!!!

    Gary and Richie both jump in fright at the booming thunder of Trent's voice, and turn towards him.

    TRENT
    In this household, at least one of the guests have to do dishes. Since I love
    green, especially various shades of it, you in the purple will be the one to do
    them, I'm afraid.

    GARY
    Hmmph.

    RICHIE
    Sounds fair to me. Have a good night, everybody!

    GARY
    Now you wait...

    Gary frowns as Richie disappears upstairs. He watches the empty staircase for a moment in silence, then turns around and sighs.

    GARY
    Fine.

    The syrupy sweet "Celtic Wedding" music starts as we cut to Upstairs, in the guest bedroom...a rather mundanely designed room...Ash sits solemnly on the edge of the bed.

    ASH
    Pikachu...

    The door opens, and Richie steps inside.

    RICHIE
    Hey Ash.

    ASH
    Hey Richie, not hungry either?

    Richie closes the door and removes his backpack.

    RICHIE
    No, I'm worried about you.

    ASH
    I just can't believe I'm trapped here while my Pikachu is with Team Rocket!

    Richie removes his vest, hanging it over his backpack. He then removes his hat and gloves.

    RICHIE
    I still think the first thing we need to concentrate on is wood.

    Ash watches Richie undress, oblivious to the awkwardness of how rude it might be.

    ASH
    I don't want to cause any trouble here.

    Richie removes his shoes and unzips his undershirt, leaving it on. He drops his trousers, revealing black leather shorts underneath with bright green laces tying up the fly. He then goes to sit next to Ash, his knee touching the depressed teen's. Their eyes lock instantly.

    RICHIE
    You know, I have faith in you Ash. You've pulled yourself out of way tighter
    sitches than this one!

    Ash smiles, and nods.

    ASH
    I suppose your right.

    Richie places his hand on Ash's sholder, gently.

    RICHIE
    You know when you set your mind to something, you never stop until you accomplish it!

    Ash smiles even wider.

    ASH
    Yeah! Like being a Pokemon Master!

    Richie smiles, moving his hand from Ash's sholder to his leg.

    RICHIE
    Yeah! And remember, your Pikachu is tough...if it hasn't already escaped you
    KNOW Brock saved it.

    ASH
    True...

    Ash, keeping his eyes locked on Richie's the entire time, moves his forehead up against Richie's.

    RICHIE
    Feel better?

    ASH
    Yeah, thanks.

    The music ends as we cut to PAUL, the future Gym Leader of the Sonic Psychic Gym, as he nonchalantly paints the outside of his gym, obviously in a bad mood. Unown is next to him, looking down as well. Suddenly, a cough can be heard behind him, and he stops painting.

    PAUL
    Huh? Somebody here?

    The Team Rocket theme music begins as we see Jessie and James, smiling confidently.

    JESSIE
    Prepair for trouble since we have no time to chat!

    JAMES
    And make it double, since rhyming cuts out all that!

    JESSIE
    To reunite the twerp with his Pikachu...

    JAMES
    To take back our dignity and start anew!

    JESSIE
    To then go on to become Hoenn Ribbon Queen Coordinator Star!

    JAMES
    Perhaps Jessie's gone a bit too far.

    JESSIE
    Jessie!

    JAMES
    James!

    JESSIE
    Team Rocket's making a swift delivery at the speed of light.

    JAMES
    So tell us where the twerps went or we'll waste time having to fight!

    MEOWTH
    Meeeeeeeowth, that's right!

    WOBBUFFET
    Wobbuffet!*
    (*Make that double right!)

    Paul strikes a defensive pose, but stays calm.

    PAUL
    Team Rocket, huh? Never thought I'd see you again.

    JESSIE
    Like the motto said, gym wannabe, were here to deliver the twerp's Pikachu, so just
    tell us where he went and we'll be on our way.

    PAUL
    He's gone from here...that attack sent him somewhere...somewhere quite remote and
    as far as I can tell, full of Pokemon I've never sensed before so it must be exotic.

    Jessie, James and Meowth's eyes all go misty, of course, at the sound of this.

    JAMES
    What luck! The twerp loses a Pikachu but gets a treasure chest full of even rarer Pokemon!

    JESSIE
    If I had never-before-seen exotic Pokemon, I wouldn't only dominate every single
    contest I entered, I'd end up becoming supreme leadress of Team Rocket itself!

    MEOWTH
    I'd end up kicking that Persian out of da Boss' life foreve!

    JESSIE
    I just said...that would be me.

    MEOWTH
    Even betta!

    PAUL
    Listen, if you truly want to give back Ash's Pikachu, Unown can help. It doesn't know
    exactly where Ash is, but it has locked onto him...somehow...something to do with him
    being pure of heart? Using the same method we did before, Unown should be able to send
    you right to him.

    Team Rocket suddenly tense up.

    JESSIE
    You mean get hit with that allmighty blast Wobbuffet and Unown were tessinisng back and forth?
    YOU MUST BE OUT OF YOUR MIND!

    JAMES
    Well, how else do you suppose we find him? It's a large world.

    MEOWTH
    Well...it can't be much worse than blastin' off.

    JESSIE
    Eh...I'm going to regret this.

    JAMES
    I think I already am!

    Pikachu, behins them, smiles with a relieved sigh.

    PIKACHU
    Pikaaaa....*
    (Wow, life sends another curve ball. Team Rocket is so bad at being evil they are actually giving me back to Ash! Oh man, will this mean no more thunderbolting them? I love it when Ash says that!)

    We cut back to Ash and Richie, laying in the bed and staring at the cealing, their arms folded behind their heads.

    ASH
    You know Richie? I think you're right...I think my Pikachu IS going to be okay!

    Richie looks over to Ash affectionately.

    RICHIE
    I know your Pikachu is okay.

    Ash smiles as he stares up at the cealing, Richie sees this and closes his eyes, beaming. Suddenly, the door opens and Gary enters. Ash smiles at him.

    ASH
    Hey Gary!

    Gary sees the closeness of Ash and Richie, as Richie's leg is clearly draped over Ash's. His eyes widen and he gasps slightly, but seeing Ash's calm demeaner focuses him back from what could have been jealousy. Without a thought, Gary grabs the bottom of his shirt and pulls it off, and after that his jeans are down leaving him in heart boxers. His skinny yet slightly muscular frame is highlighted by the moonlight. He then lazily throws his shirt on his jeans and quietly gets into bed, on the other side of Ash.

    ASH
    You both have been such a big help...thank you.

    GARY
    No problem, Ashy.

    RICHIE
    Yeah...

    Ash lets out a loud yawn, and smiles as he closes his eyes.

    ASH
    Good night!

    As we pan back, we see Richie and Gary still have their eyes open, and they are looking at each other...their looks can only be described as "I think we may have a problem here".

    RICHIE
    Sweet dreams, Ash.

    GARY
    G'night, Ashy boy.

    NARRATOR
    With the lush and laxed atmousphere of the Isle of Ganymede comes young spurning
    affections between two of our heroes...and maybe something more...

    Richie and Gary close their eyes, falling asleep. Each has a leg draped over one of Ash's legs.

    TO BE CONTINUED...

    In the guest bedroom, snoozing silently, are Gary, Ash, and Richie. Richie has his left leg draped over Ash's left leg, and his left hand is firmly resting on Ash's chest. Gary's right leg is draped over Ash's right leg, and his hand is resting over Richie's hand.

    In the window, a silent observer can now be seen. A Pokemon, unlike any other seen. It looks like a way cute version of the Sphinx. It sees the three, smiles with an overabundance of joy, and suddenly it's eyes glow...

    ***
    Pokemon: <3Shi
    Chapter 4

    We open on a Blank screen with the episode title appearing; DREAM A LITTLE DREAM OF SHI!

    ASH (voice)
    Dream a little dream...of Shi!!!!

    ***

    We open on Ash as he awakens in his own bed, in his bedroom, back in Pallet Town. He stands, looks around, then scratches his head.

    ASH
    This is wierd.

    We then cut to Gary as he awakens in his own bedroom at his grandfather's. His bedroom is full of serene Japanese imagery, including various Ying-Yang imagery.

    GARY
    Huh? Was it all a dream?

    We then cut to Richie as he awakens in his posh bed, in his bedroom back on the Seafoam Islands. It's large and decorated to the nines, full of exotic plants and several bookcases filled with novels. He quickly stands, glimpsing his surroundings with sudden fear.

    RICHIE
    No... Ash? Where are you?

    Richie stands, and continues looking around his room in fright.

    RICHIE
    Stay calm Richie. You CAN'T be here. You can't.

    Suddenly, there is a loud knock at Richie's bedroom door, causing Richie to jump.

    MAN'S VOICE
    RICHARD, you still here?

    WOMAN'S VOICE
    Looks like were going to have to have another talk, young man.

    Back in Ash's room, Ash looks at his shelf and sees all his current badges and trophies on display. He smiles momentarily, then looks around.

    ASH
    Uh...Richie? Gary? Where are you guys?

    Suddenly, Ash's door opens and Mr. Mime enters with a vacuum cleaner.

    MR MIME
    Mr Miiiiiiime

    Ash gasps as his eyes widen.

    ASH
    Aaaahhhhhh!

    Gary looks into the mirror, throwing his untaimed hair out of his eyes. He turns around, and suddenly TRACEY is standing there, he apparently had opened Gary's bedroom door quietly and had crept in.

    GARY
    WHAAA! Tracey!

    TRACEY
    Sorry, but I felt like watching today...

    Gary shudders as he bottom lip quivers a bit.

    Back in Richie's room, Richie looks down in sadness as the door continues knocking. However, a black hole appears next to Richie, and he looks at it in wonder. Without thinking too deeply about it, he enters it.

    In Ash's room, Ash is fighting off Mr. Mime's vacuum extension with his desk chair. The same black hole appears, and Ash doesn't need to think twice about jumping in.

    In Gary's room. Gary sees the black hole also.

    GARY
    Yeah, gonna go with the black hole...never thought I'd hear myself say that.

    TRACEY
    No, stay so I can WATCH you more!

    GARY
    Um, no and no. Laters.

    Gary jumps into the black hole, and finds himself standing next to Ash and Richie.

    GARY
    Hey, there you guys are. What's going on?

    RICHIE
    We're trying to figure that out also.

    ASH
    One minute I was in my bedroom.

    GARY
    Me too.

    RICHIE
    Yeah, I didn't appreciate that.

    VOICE
    Sorry!

    The three spin around, and see an almost mirrored version of Ash. (FYI, it's the image of RED from the Manga!)

    ASH
    Whoa...

    While Ash looks the boy over with curiousity, Richie and Gary both let out little private smirks as they do double takes.

    SHI
    I am Shi. And I am sorry for the inconvenience I've caused you three. It's just...I''ve found the best way to
    really get to know a guy is by checking out his bedroom.

    ASH
    Huh?

    SHI
    In your minds, your bedrooms hold the key to all sorts of information.

    RICHIE
    We're dreaming?

    SHI
    Not exactly. You three are in a shared subconscious reality. A little unique
    ability I possess, and it definately comes in handy. And you won't really remember
    any of this when you wake up. It wouldn't be for the best at this time. But don't worry...
    when your ready I'll allow all these memories to be yours to share.

    RICHIE
    Who are you?

    GARY
    Yeah, and why do you look so much like Ash?

    ASH
    You think he looks like me?

    SHI
    I chose this image based on psychic information that goes far beyond your comprehension.
    You three exsist together on so many different planes of reality....parallel universes...dimensions
    that fire the imagination or terrify even the cruelist of tyrants. How is it possible fate has
    blessed me to be brought to you in this particular reality! I don't know if I could feel any more
    joyous!

    RICHIE
    What do you mean we exsist together in different realities?

    Shi smiles at Richie, and wrinkles his nose.

    SHI
    Perhaps someday I'll share with you some the information you seek...but right now I am concentrating
    on getting to know you three personally. Richie. Gary. ....Ash.

    GARY
    And how do you plan on doing this?

    SHI
    By allowing you three to get to know each other better. Have fun!

    Shi claps his hands, and the three are now standing near a river.

    GARY
    I think I recognize this place...

    ASH
    Yeah! I do too...

    We suddenly see a very adorable nine year old Ash is happily chasing after a Butterfree. He's wearing a bright sky blue

    YOUNG ASH
    *giggles*

    Richie looks over to Ash, while Gary simply smiles at seeing an image from the past he never thought he'd see again.

    RICHIE
    Is that you, Ash?

    Ash looks hard, then smiles widely.

    ASH
    It is me! Ha!

    The young Kethcum continues running, and the older three follow him. He runs along the river and makes his way to a thick forest area.

    SHI (voice)
    Do you remember this day yet, Ash?

    Ash, not moving his eyes from his younger counterpart, simply shakes his head. Gary, on the other hand, seems to have changed demeaners.

    ASH
    No, not really.

    GARY
    I do.

    The younger Ash, not watching where he was going, jumps high into the air to catch Butterfree...but then goes crashing down a slope and into the river.

    YOUNG ASH
    Whooooaaaaa!

    With a giant splash, young Ash finds himself completely soaked with water. He crosses his arms and huffs loudly, frustrated.

    YOUNG ASH
    Stupid river!

    Gary smiles while Richie looks over to Ash with squinted eyes.

    RICHIE
    You were ADORABLE as a kid!

    Ash immediately blushes.

    ASH
    Uhhhh....

    Gary looks over to Richie.

    GARY
    Yeah, you should have seen him back when he got really angry, he was so cute!

    Ash blushes even deeper.

    ASH
    Uhhhhh.....

    As the younger boy makes his way to the side of the river, Richie notices movement out of the corner of his eye. He looks to his right, and before he can say anything...a ROCK is flying through the air. It hits the young Ash on the side of the head, causing the boy to cry out in pain as he falls back into the water.

    Ash, Gary, and Richie all watch as three boys, all looking no older than thirteen, approach the riverside. All three are holding rocks.

    RICHIE
    What's going on?

    Gary's eyes turn practically red with fury as Ash simply clenches his fists and teeth. Gary practically spits.

    GARY
    Victor, Yoshi, and Frank.

    The younger Ash stands, a look of anger and fear splashed on his face as a trail of red slides down the side of his face.

    YOUNG ASH
    Why'd ya do that?

    Victor tosses his rock into the air, catching it with ease.

    VICTOR
    Word around Pallet's sayin' there's a little queer who's gonna try to become a
    Pokemon Master.

    Frank wrinkles his nose in disgust.

    FRANK
    Yeah, he even got that rich stuck-up professor to somehow befriend him. Give him
    advantages no other trainer will get, I'm sure.

    VICTOR
    Nah, his ma's been banging the old fart.

    Voctor, Frank, and Yoshi all begin taking steps closer to Ash, who is still standing cautiously in the water.

    YOSHI
    Must run in the family...like mother like son. Now that your ma has a man, looks
    like your going to become the new town whor....

    Suddenly, unbeknownst to the teenage predators, a nine year old ****** off Gary Oak appears from behind.

    YOUNG GARY
    Hey!

    The three spin around, clutching their rocks in surprise. When they see it's Gary, all three ease up. Yoshi even grins.
    Young Ash, however, sees Young Gary through his soggy eyes and his face brightens up.

    YOUNG ASH
    Gary!!!

    YOSHI
    Well, lookie here. It's the Professor's orphan grandson. How's your sister doing?
    Or...who is she doing?

    VICTOR
    Makes sense we'd find these two together.

    Ash looks at Gary, his eyes showing puzzlement.

    ASH
    How is it I don't remember these guys saying any of this.

    GARY
    Ash, you were so kind-hearted...I made it a habit to keep you so preoccupied
    with me you never even noticed what the rest of Pallet Town said about us. You
    never deserved to hear what they said...I'm sorry you are hearing it now.

    Richie looks over to Gary momentarily, a small smile quickly passes his lips.

    Frank grins sadistically at young Gary.

    FRANK
    Quite possibly the second gayest kid in Pallet...second only to Ash
    here, of course.

    Young Gary narrows his eyes a bit and withdraws a BASEBALL BAT from behind his back.

    YOUNG GARY
    NOBODY SAYS I'M SECOND TO ASH, LOSERS!

    And with that, Gary runs at them with the bat. Victor throws his rock right at Gary's face, but Gary dodges it and continues his pursuit.

    YOUNG GARY
    WHAT'S THE MATTER? YOU HAD NO PROBLEM THROWING A
    ROCK AT ASH! HE CAN'T EVEN DEFEND HIMSELF!

    Young Ash, who had managed to crawl back up to land, passes out from a concussion.

    VICTOR
    He's just some moneyless worthless ******* queer trash. Everyone in Pallet knows it.

    Victor didn't get to say much after Young Gary struck him in the back. The older boy fell to his knees in pain, causing his friends to stop momentarily in shock. Gary gritted his teeth and lifted his bat again.

    YOUNG GARY
    You two wanna say anything more about Ash Ketchum?

    Frank drops his rock and runs. Yoshi, however, gives into his sudden anger and clutches his rock even tighter.

    YOSHI
    I...hate...queers.

    Yoshi throws the rock at Young Gary's face with all his might. Young Gary takes a step left, swings his bat, and the rock soars back to Yoshi. Within seconds of being struck by the rock, Yoshi howls in pain as the baseball bat cracks him over the back as well.

    YOUNG GARY
    If I EVER see you near Ash again, so help me...

    And with that, Young Gary throws the bat into the river and walks in a swift pace back to Young Ash.

    Ash looks over to Gary with wide eyes, and an expressionless gaze. Gary, who notices Ash is now looking at him, simply closes his eyes and lowers his head. His hands figet in his pockets, but besides that he's stone silent. Richie is still absorbing in what had just happoned.

    ASH
    Gary...

    GARY
    I don't wanna talk about it Ash.

    Young Gary kneels next to his fallen friend. He looks him over with concearn, not sure how to proceed. He gently places his hands onto Young Ash's sholders, and gently shakes him.

    YOUNG GARY (softly)
    Ash...? Ash, you okay?

    Young Ash groans, and moves lightly. Young Gary helps his best friend up, the boy still groggy.

    YOUNG GARY
    You okay?

    Even though one side of his face was now covered in blood, Young Ash managed a weak smile and placed out his index and middle fingers in a half-attempt at a victory pose. Young Gary sees this and manages a smile.

    YOUNG GARY
    Come on, we need to get you to Gramps'. Mai can help.

    YOUNG ASH
    Okay.

    Ash looked again at Gary, this time he's holding back tears.

    ASH
    Gary...your a pacifist...you said you could never hurt another person.

    Gary kept his eyes closed, an uneasy sneer coming to his face.

    GARY
    Ash, don't be a moron. I'd sooner let myself get killed than allow anyone to
    hurt you. It was true then, and it's even more tru...

    Gary pauses, his cheeks growing slightly flushed.

    GARY
    Was this your intention...*SHI*...to bring up an event I was NEVER gonna
    tell Ash about? I think *you're* the one with problems.

    SHI (voice)
    Me? Wanna take a stab at how many alternate and parallel versions of yourself
    put down Ash? Try 88%. You have some very twisted ideas about Love, in this
    world and others.

    Gary gets more angry as he releases his hands from his pockets and clench his fists.

    GARY
    What could you possibly know about my feelings for Ash.

    Ash and Richie both look at Gary with surprise at the sound of that. Ash, especially, hasn't been able to close his mouth for awhile.

    SHI
    In my very last lifetime...

    Suddenly a screen-like image appears in front of them, and inside this screen we see a very interesting variation of Ash, Gary and Richie. The three are about four years older, and appear to be professional surfers. While Shi talks we see a collage of images of their life. They lay on the beach every day together, surf together, party together, have beach bonfires together, and live in a small surf hut together.

    SHI
    I knew you three in an alternate dimension where Pokemon don't even exsist.
    Heck, the entire world was different. Yet, somehow, you three managed to find each
    other not only despite the odds, you three mirror your own selves in many ways.

    RICHIE
    Wow, look at us.

    We then see the three surfers are dressed all in white, flowing robes. They appear to be taking part in a ceremony.

    SHI
    And at your wedding, you told Ash and Richie you were never complete when it came
    to love. That incompleteness twisted you inside, forcing you to drive away anything that
    made you happy inside...that and a healthy dosage of fear...but they managed to straighten
    you out again.

    ASH
    You're saying the three of us...got married?

    Ash, Richie and Gary all look at each other...then quickly back forward. All three blushing profusely.

    SHI
    Oh yes. It's quite common for you three. Even more so for two of you if a third
    doesn't exsist in that particular world. You three...are simply meant to be.

    The screen changes to a high school setting. Inside a crowded cafeteria, scores of students socialize with each other. However, way far to the back, isolated from the rest of the student body, are juniors Satoshi, Hiroshi, and Shigeru. All three are wearing tight-fit navy blue school uniforms. Hiroshi has his on the neatest, looking fresh and clean cut. His normally wild hair combed evenly. Satoshi's is on correctly, but it looks as though he placed his on while running to school, and Shigeru's uniform is downright sloppy. Buttons unfastened, sleeves rolled up, and his shirt untucked. And he has the same ying-yang necklace around his neck our Gary has.

    ASH
    Whoa...look at us there.

    Hiroshi gets a small smirk on his face, picks up his chop sticks, and quietly moves his hands under the table. He then proceeds to poke Shigeru and Satoshi with the chopsticks, causing Satoshi and Shigeru to look at each other with slight annoyance.

    SATOSHI
    What's the big idea, Gerubaka?

    SHIGERU
    What? Your the one who can't keep his hands to himself, Satoshi-CHAN.

    Satoshi narrows his eyes and grins at Shigeru devilishly.

    SATOSHI
    Oh please. Your obviously suffering from Satoshi withdrawel.

    Shigeru smirks widely and narrows his eyes.

    SHIGERU
    The only thing I'm suffering from is LOSER-ITUS! I probably caught it from
    YOU in STD form!

    Hiroshi giggles, causing the two to look at him. Satoshi closes his eyes and smiles sweetly while Shigeru offers Hiroshi a smirk.

    SATOSHI
    That was you, wasn't it Hiro-chan!

    HIROSHI
    Yes, I love watching you two bicker. You both get so animated.

    SHIGERU
    You're going to love something else as soon as this damn school day is over.

    HIROSHI
    So are you.

    At this point, Ash, Richie and Gary are all five shades of red. The screen changes to yet another scene from another reality. This time we see a Pokemon Shelter, a place for battered Pokemon to live. Inside we meet the owners; another Richie, Gary and Ash...all of them in their mid-twenties. The place is very underfunded, it would seem, and the clothes the three are wearing are ragged and torn, but the three seem genuinely happy with themselves and their lives.

    SHI (voice)
    As you can see, the situations may be different...but the outcome is always the same.
    You three will always have a profound impact on each other.

    GARY
    How can there be so many of...us...out there? And how can we be anything like them?

    SHI (voice)
    It's quite simple...you only possess a fragment of your larger soul, chi, essence, whatever
    you wish to call it. You are no more entitled to be you than any of your counterparts...

    RICHIE
    And this...profound impact we have on each other...is it always a good thing?

    SHI (voice)
    Very perceptive. Absolutely no certanties, but you three will always end up bringing out
    the ultimate best...or worst...in each other. Luckily, the former is always far more likely
    than the latter. Of course, your trinity always has nasty ripples...like what we saw in Pallet
    Town. Or, perhaps, on the Seafoam Islands?

    The screen goes blank and suddenly Ash, Richie and Gary find themselves in front of a large, three story mansion. They look around...Richie goes pale instantly.

    RICHIE
    Why am I here again?

    ASH
    Where are we, Richie?

    Richie frowns, looking at Ash with a sadness the trainer had rarely ever seen on the angelic face.

    RICHIE
    Someplace bad.

    The three turn around, and see an eleven year old Richie bounding up the street, heading for the very dwelling they were in front of.

    GARY
    Hey look, it's you.

    Richie watches his younger counterpart, seeing the happiness over his face. He frowns and takes a step forward.

    RICHIE
    Stop. You really don't want to go in there....

    The younger Richie eagerly walks right through his older counterpart and up the stairs to the front door. Sparkie jumps off and sits on the porch, obviously knowing he's not allowed inside. When he sees the door is locked, he rings the doorbell. Within moments, the door opens and we see a butler. He looks at Richie with...perhaps revulsion...but keeps his composure.

    BUTLER
    Master Richard.

    The younger Richie gulps a bit, possibly intimidated by the creepy-looking older man.

    YOUNG RICHIE
    Pauderoy. Nice to see you again...

    The Butler Pauderoy steps back, allowing the boy entrance.

    Ash, Richie and Gary find themselves inside the livingroom, watching the younger Richie enter with excitement.

    YOUNG RICHIE
    MOM? DAD? I MADE IT TO THE INDIGO LEAGUE!! BUT THAT'S NOT THE BEST NEWS!

    The younger Richie stops, and looks around the living room with slight puzzlement as his older counterpart crosses his arms and simply watches...the energy seemingly draining from the trainer's face. The younger Richie sees a family portrait over the fireplace...but Richie himself is nowhere to be seen in it. This causes the younger trainer to scratch his head with curiousity.

    ASH
    Richie...this is your house?

    GARY
    Who knew you were loaded?

    Richie looks at them, his lip slightly quivering.

    RICHIE
    This is NOT my house.

    The three look to their left as an older couple walk in; both dressed in darker shades of green and looking none-to-pleased to see the young trainer.

    RICHIE
    Mom! Dad! I did it! I won all my badges and made it to the Indigo League!

    Richie's mother looks at Richie's father, neither seem happy.

    FATHER
    I thought we sent you away to make us proud. Pokemon TRAINING?

    The younger Richie's face darkens slightly, but he brushes it off.

    YOUNG RICHIE
    That's not even the best part...I...I'M IN LOVE!!!

    This causes Richie's parents to look at each other with surprise. The mother, especially, looks relieved.

    MOTHER
    Richie, do you mean it? You've finally found a girl that you think is pretty? I knew you would...

    The younger Richie smiles innocently and shakes his head.

    YOUNG RICHIE
    No! His name is Ash and he's this really cute trainer from Pallet Town. He has a Pikac...

    Before the younger Richie could say another word, his father's fist had connected with his face and Richie's dainty body found itself flying backwards freely until his back hit the ground with a thud.

    FATHER
    We told you NEVER to come back unless you had a woman pregnant, ready to carry on our family legacy.

    Richie's mother sneers, her face showing true disgust at her son, who lay bleeding on the floor before her.

    MOTHER
    I see my last birthday gift to you really didn't make a difference, did it.

    Richie, still in a daze, manages to lift his head up and sees his father walking towards him again.

    FATHER
    Your brothers have all married and are producing offspring for our farm...
    yet you willingly dishonor both our hard work and family dignity with
    your sick, evil...disgusting ****** ways.

    Richie's father kicks him in the stomache.

    MOTHER
    Leave this house. It'll never be welcome to you again.

    Richie manages to stand with some difficulty, the blood running from his nose to the marble floor underneath, making a small trail as he began walking with pain towards the front door.

    Ash and Gary are speechless, motionless. Richie's bottom lip quivers, and upon seeing that Gary moves to him and gives him a hug. Ash, dumbfounded, walks over to the two and hugs Richie as well, causing the sobbing trainer to break down even more.

    GARY
    There the ones who need a reality check.

    ASH
    Richie...I had no idea...

    Richie looks at Ash through his bloodshot eyes.

    RICHIE
    That was the idea. I never wanted anything like this to ever affect your life.

    Gary raises his head, and looks at Richie with an understanding he didn't possess before. Richie responds back in kind...the two realizing they both want to protect Ash from the harshness of reality.

    SHI (voice)
    Richie...why don't you tell them what your mother's birthday gift was?

    Richie takes a deep breath and shakes his head.

    RICHIE
    She...paid the town prostitute to rape me. I guess to make me like women.

    Ash and Gary's jaws drop.

    ASH/GARY
    WHAT?

    Richie shrugs, trying to wipe away the tears that have subsided..

    RICHIE
    At the time it was all very confusing....

    Richie smiles at them.

    RICHIE
    But it doesn't matter anymore, does it?

    Ash manages a smile, as does Gary.

    SHI (voice)
    You see? You three think that sharing the truth will drive you apart...but it will
    only bring you closer together. Now return to your dreams...we will meet again, soon.

    Ash and Gary disapear, and Richie finds himself standing in pitch blackness, Shi standing in front of him.

    RICHIE
    Hey, where did they go?

    Shi grabs the front of his red baseball cap and turns it backwards, allowing his face to be seen clearer.

    SHI
    You were the one curious about the limitless possibilities. Gary may be the scientist but
    you're the perceptive one.

    Richie smiles warmly at Shi.

    RICHIE
    Thanks, it's amazing how few people realize I'm quite smart. I don't mind, it lets me get
    the upperhand.

    SHI
    But here's the thing...when I said you three can either bring out the best or the worst in
    each other, I wasn't kidding. The passion boiling inside you three is very strong...forceful.

    A screen appears in front of Richie, and we see a variant of Ash, this one eighteen. He's lean, muscular, and wearing nothing but a pair of jeans. Standing next to him is a variant of Misty, a beautiful young woman with long red hair and a flowing white dress. She is leaning on a variant of Danny, a muscular man with perfect hair. The three are walking along a town's sidewalk in the late evening.

    KASUMI
    Satoshi...you don't need to protect us...I have my Togetic and...

    Satoshi's eyes dart about the

    SATOSHI
    Quiet. They know your both here with me.

    KASUMI
    And if they do? Like I said, I can protect myself!

    Satoshi stops and his head spins around to Kasumi, his face showing pure anger and dread.

    SATOSHI
    Would you like to see the photos Shigeru sent of Takashi? What he did to him? Or
    my first Pikachu? Would you like me to tell you about what Hiroshi did to Tooi? Or to Kenji
    and Toru on their wedding night? THEY ARE RIVALING TO SEE WHO CAN TORMENT
    ME THE MOST. With Tooi dead...you two are the only two I care about that are left.
    And if I break...one of them'll get me. Then I'll be dead...or worse...

    Kasumi's eyes are watering, as she looks at Ash with fright.

    KASUMI
    All because you dated them both back when we were kids?

    SATOSHI
    Because I lied, and led them both on that they were the only one..s.

    A pebble can be heard, and Satoshi's face looks stiffened and shocked. He quickly spins his head back around, and sees Hiroshi. Hiroshi is wearing a skintight, black catsuit, however his beautiful face and hair are clean and shiny. He sneers wickedly at Satoshi.

    HIROSHI
    Yes, you played me for a fool, Satoshi. ME. I gave my heart and soul over to you completely and
    you dishonored it with your...

    Hiroshi's eyes flair, and he withdraws a katana from his backpack, which he then drops to the ground. Satoshi withdraws his nunchucks, and strikes a defensive pose in front of his friends.

    SATOSHI
    To hell with you Hiroshi. What you and Shigeru have done to me warrants both of your heads,
    no matter if I used to kiss them or not.

    And with that, the two stallions are fighting, Satoshi blocking all of Hiroshi's attacks with precision.

    Richie watches this at first with true awe, but his face grows sour.

    RICHIE
    I've seen enough.

    While Kasumi clutches her man with fright, we see a dark Shigeru approach them from behind in a blackened alleyway. He removes the hood from his cloak, and raises a sniper rifle towards Kasumi's head.

    RICHIE
    ENOUGH!!!!!!!!

    The screen changes to another reality. We are in Pallet Town, at the Ketchum residence where a large and lavish wedding is about to take place. The sign in the front yard says; KETCHUM AND WATERFLOWER MARRIAGE - Today.

    In the backyard, we see everyone is bustling around, getting the final touches ready. Todd and Tracey are both standing near the preacher, ready to begin as soon as the procession begins. Daisy, Violet, and Lily...all dressed in Bridesmaids gowns, run around trying to get the floral arangements positioned correctly. Deliah and Professor Oak are standing next to Brock, who is wearing a tuxedo...obviously one of the groomsmen. Misty, dressed in a white dress that goes beyond descriptions of beautiful, angrily storms out of the small tool shed and marches over to the three.

    MISTY
    What's the hold up? Where is that flighty fiance of mine now?

    DELIAH
    Why, I don't know Misty, dear.

    BROCK
    I haven't been able to find him or the best men.

    PROF. OAK
    That's odd. I wonder where Gary could be?

    Misty turns red, and somehow she withdraws a Mallet from behind her wedding dress.

    MISTY
    I'll bet he's getting cold feet! I'll teach him!

    Misty goes marching into the house, followed by a suddenly-nervous Brock and an equally intrigued Deliah and Prof. Oak. Todd and Tracey run in behind them.

    MISTY
    ASH KETCHUM, YOU BETTER BE...

    Misty opens Ash's bedroom door and simply stops talking. Perhaps the shock left her completely speechless, but surely what she saw did not register with her right away. On Ash's bed lay a very handsome Ketchum, looking handsome and sharp in his Tuxedo. Laying on one side of him is Richie, his arms loosely wrapped around Ash's sholders. His tuxedo matches Gary's, who lays peacefully on the other side of Ash, his arms wrapped around his waiste. All three have peaceful, serene looks on their faces.

    When the others approach Misty, they too are shocked by the scene. Prof. Oak looks onto Ash's desk, and sees a bottle and a paper scribbled next to it that reads in large letters NOBODY WOULD UNDERSTAND. WERE SORRY. He grabs the bottle with recognition and smells it.

    PROF. OAK
    This is undiluted Beedrill poison. Gary must have stolen it fro...

    Prof. Oak drops the bottle and looks back at the bed with sudden knowledge. Tracey, also, drops his notebook and shakes his head in disbelief.

    The screen goes dark, and Richie looks ghostly pale in the face.

    RICHIE
    Why did you show me those aweful things?

    SHI
    Because, I'm afraid a tragedy may befall you three as well. I think that might be
    why I'm here. And I think you may be the key to setting the path right.

    And with that, Richie leaves for his normal REM sleep. Shi smiles and nods as we cut back to the sleeping three inside the guest bedroom. All three move slightly in their sleep, but do not wake up.

    NARRATOR
    With the introduction of a mysterious new friend, our heroes now realize that everything
    about their lives is far more complicated than they ever could have imagined...even if they
    won't remember most of it in the morning.

    I really like how you write it as a teleplay . It is really cool. And I love how you used my theory that Richie is from the Seafoam islands. Shi is a really interesting character. He is the composite of all three, right. I also enjoy Gary and Ash's conversation about their younger counterparts. Gary is just a big sweetheart, isn't he. Those little gay bashers need to die. Are they the other three trainers from Pallet from the first season? I do like that Ash's mom is ****ing Oak. LOL. I also enjoyed the HiroSatoShi moments. That scene with Richie and his parents is practically like a memory just out of my only. Except they are not farmers, but Christian Scientists. And my mother would never get me such an great birthday present. XD, I always got books and clothing. No hookers for Arti I think PokeProphet would love those Misty scenes. The sad scenes make me.....sad. XD I think Richie and Shi need to get it on.

    We open inside the guest bedroom, where Gary, Ash, and Richie all lie asleep. Both Gary and Richie have managed, over the night, to push themselves up right against their respective side of Ash...both faces innocently snoozing only centimeters from their favorite Pokemon trainer. It is now morning, and the sunlight shines through the window, illuminating all three faces.

    NARRATOR
    A new day dawns on the beautiful Isle of Ganymede. And with it, three wayworn
    travelors from a far away land. However, even in the early hours of the morning,
    something interesting is always waiting to pop up.

    The sunlight causes Ash to awaken, his eyes looking incredibly tired. Richie stirs as well, not opening his eyes but the slow thrusting in his hips is an indication. Gary half-opens his eyes and subconsciously mirrors Richie's actions to a smaller degree.

    ASH
    Is it...?

    GARY
    Mornin'...

    RICHIE
    Wood.

    Richie, still half-asleep, continues his thrusts of Ash's leg until the guest bedroom door CRASHES open, causing all three trainers to jump in surprise. It's Trent, who runs in and crashes his hands down hard onto the endboard of the bed.

    TRENT
    Goooood MORNING FELLAS! I COULDN'T HELP BUT OVERHEAR YOU THREE
    WERE UP AND ABOUT SO I DECIDED TO SHARE WITH YOU ALL THE
    GOOD NEWS!!!

    Gary and Richie, BOTH intimidated by Trent's insanely masculine-booming voice, grab Ash momentarily. Ash, however, looks incredibly thrilled as he stands, clad in white briefs, and raises his fist triumphantly. With the blanket thrown back, it's quite clear Gary and Richie both are suffering from sudden embarrasment.

    ASH
    Yeah! Lay the good news on me, Trent!

    TRENT
    Last night in bed, I got to thinking about you three and I got the greatest idea.

    ASH
    Yeah?

    Richie turns to Gary and speaks softy.

    RICHIE
    Uh oh, I've heard this one before...

    TRENT
    My wife's younger brother, Caleb, runs the Ganymede Museum. HE KNOWS EVERYTHING
    THERE IS TO KNOW ABOUT THIS ISLAND'S HISTORY AND IF THERE WAS A WAY OFF,
    HE WOULD KNOW IT!

    Ash smiles widely.

    ASH
    Ha HA! Then it's off to the museum to see Caleb then it's off to rescue my Pikachu!

    Trent looks at Gary and Richie.

    TRENT
    You two might want to...freshen up. The bathroom's down the hall.

    Richie and Gary exchange knowing glances as Trent turns. Trent takes a few steps then looks back at the three.

    TRENT
    Actually...not to be rude, but do they even have baths where your from?

    ASH
    Huh?

    TRENT
    You three...SHOULD REALLY CONSIDER BATHING BEFORE WE LEAVE...
    WE EVEN HAVE SOAP SO YOU WON'T CAUSE ALL THE PRETTY YOUNG
    LADIES TO RUN SCREAMING FROM YOUR FOUL ODERS, HA HA HA!!!

    With that, Trent is out the door, leaving a very confused trio behind him.

    ASH
    Uh...okay...

    GARY
    Phht. What does he mean we smell?

    Of course, all three simultaneously lift an arm, take a smell, and sure enough all three share an equally sour face.

    RICHIE
    I guess as you get older it just gets harder to keep up with some stuff.

    GARY
    Definately gotta start making more time for *that*.

    Richie looks at him, nodding in total agreement while Ash looks down with almost a sad, contemplative face.

    RICHIE
    Completely.

    ASH
    Yeah, even *I'm* grossed out.

    Fade to BLACK.

    Pokemon: <3Shi
    Chapter 5

    We open on a Blank screen with the episode title appearing; A MUSEUM REUNION!

    ASH (voice)
    A museum reunion!


    We cut to Ash, Richie and Gary as they leave the house, looking much cleaner and all seem to be in a somewhat lighter mood than the night before. Trent is standing outside with his children Jack, Shatiqua and Tangina. Shatiqua's Ocea and Tangina's Crossova are there as well.

    TRENT
    WELL, WHO KNEW YOU THREE HAD FACES UNDER ALL THAT PERSPERATION?

    Richie and Gary look at each other, obviously thinking there's just something off about Trent, but they both shrug it off.

    TANGINA
    Good morning sweeties, my dad tells me you three are going with him to
    Cherry Bust Village.

    JACK
    We wish we could come...we have to help mom around the house.

    SHATIQUA
    Yeah, in the sense that we do all the housework while she meditates.

    ASH
    Oh...well I hope we get to meet again someday, you both have really awesome
    Pokemon and I'd love to learn more about them someday. Jack, thanx for helping
    us out, we'll never forget it.

    JACK
    No problem! I hope you three find your way back!

    Ash, Richie and Gary all begin walking, waving at them as they depart.

    TRENT
    We'll be there in no time! The trail is less than a mile long!

    ASH
    Bye Tangina! Bye Shatiqua! Bye...

    Suddenly, the front door of the house opens, and DeLoris rushes out.

    DELORIS
    Wait! Importance urges haste!

    They stop as DeLoris approaches. She forcefully grabs Ash and pull him aside, his wide frightened eyes locked onto hers.

    DELORIS
    You my child, are different. I saw it all so clearly as if I was seeing a past life regression.
    Your friends back home all know it...those two certainly know it as they're special too...
    your mother knows...your father knew before he left...

    Ash's eyes widen. DeLoris offers Ash a simple, yet mysterious smile.

    DELORIS
    And Ho-oh knows, my child.

    And with that, DeLoris turns around and walks back into the house.

    Richie and Gary run up to Ash.

    RICHIE
    Are you okay?

    GARY
    What did she say to you?

    Ash is silent for a moment, looking introspective.

    ASH
    ...She said I was different.

    Gary and Richie look at each other, confused.

    RICHIE
    This family is strange.

    We then pan close to Richie's face as he places his index finger to his lip and scrunches his eyebrows, thinking.

    RICHIE (voice)
    I wonder what DeLoris means by 'different'? I think Ash isn't telling me everything she said.

    ***

    We cut to Trent leading them out of the forest.

    TRENT
    WELCOME TO CHERRY BUST VILLAGE!

    RICHIE
    Wow, look at this place.

    Indeed, the entire town seemed to favor the color red, or more precisely, cherry red. And the villagers all seem to be the generic, quaint, happy-type. Ash runs forward, and looks around in amazement.

    ASH
    Boy, they sure like the color red, huh?

    Gary smiles.

    GARY
    That's your favorite color, Ashy!

    Ash turns his head towards Gary, and smiles.

    ASH
    Wow Gary, you sure have a great memory.

    Gary looks over to Richie and sees him clenching his teeth, so he winks at him as he grins.

    GARY
    Sure do. Say, betcha can't remember my favorite color.

    Richie clenches his fists slightrly, but remains calm.

    RICHIE
    Let ME guess, it's purple...right?

    Gary smiles at Richie as his eyes flash with emotion; most of it flirty.

    GARY
    WRONG-O!!!!!

    Trent watches the three with some disbelief.

    TRENT
    Okay, now this may not be the best time for you young men to be griping
    over favorite colors and whatnot. That sounds like something some girly girl
    pansy girl would say.

    RICHIE
    If the shoe fits...

    Gary turns to Richie again in an instant, this time his eyes flaring.

    GARY
    ARE YOU IMPLYING THERE'S SOMETHING A LITTLE ...SUBMISSIVE ABOUT ME?

    Richie gets into Gary's face (by standing on his tip-toes) and keeps his eyes locked on his.

    RICHIE
    DON'T WE SOUND A LITTLE DEFENSIVE?

    GARY
    DON'T *WE* SOUND A LITTLE AGGRESSIVE...AND I DO MEAN *LITTLE*!!!!!

    Richie and Gary are not face to face, growling at each other.

    RICHIE
    Grrrrrr.

    GARY
    GGRRRrrrrrrr.

    RICHIE
    GGGGGGGGRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!

    GARY
    RRRRROOOOOOAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!

    Trent looks at them with even further disbelief...but it can't match Ash's face, who looks like a deer caught in the headlights.

    TRENT
    What is the deal with your chums there, Ash?

    ASH
    They're....um....

    RICHIE
    RRRRRRRRRROOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!

    GARY
    GGGGGGGRRRRRROOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!! !!!!

    ***

    We cut to Trent and the three coming up to the Museum, a rambling grandiose affair that's over two blocks large.

    TRENT
    And this, is the Ganymede Museum! I'm sure you three will learn a lot today!

    GARY
    Oh, yay.

    ASH
    This place looks awesome! Let's keep moving!

    Inside, we see them walking by all sorts of different paintings, sculptures, murials, and never-before-seen Pokemon exhibits.

    RICHIE
    Look at all these Pokemon! I've never seen any of them!

    ASH
    Yeah, you'd think we would see at least ONE we recognize.

    They all stop at the sound of a voice.

    VOICE
    Ah, but that's where your wrong.

    They turn around, and we see a man in his early twenties, with pretty green eyes and black hair. His whole appearance might show shades of a 'gothic' nature, and he seems to favor wearing various shades of grey.

    TRENT
    Caleb! It's been awhile!

    Caleb nods, he definately has the same mysterious demeaner as his sister DeLoris.

    CALEB
    Trent. Your daughter contacted me and announced your arrival.

    Caleb then shifts his attantion to the three trainers.

    CALEB
    Welcome to Ganymede. I am Caleb, caretaker of the Ganymede Museum.

    ASH
    Hi! I'm Ash! From Pallet Town!

    GARY
    Gary.

    RICHIE
    Hi, I'm Richie.

    CALEB
    I trust you all believe I can help you off this Island. What I can offer you, however, is
    answers to all your questions...and perhaps a way home will be pathed out from here.

    ASH
    Oh...

    GARY
    What kind of ridiculous double-talk is that?

    RICHIE
    What are you saying, Caleb? There is no way off...yet...

    Caleb nods.

    CALEB
    Conversing with me will most likely lead you onto the path of exiting this
    island? Yes, that is what I said.

    Ash blankly looks off.

    ASH
    Wait a second...if there's no way off, how can there be a path leading to a way off?

    GARY
    That's not what he means, Ash...he's speaking philosophically.

    ASH
    Philo...uh....

    Richie smiles at Ash affectionately then looks back at Caleb.

    RICHIE
    Are you a psychic? I've noticed there's a real psychic theme on this Island.

    Caleb smiles at Richie.

    CALEB
    Very perceptive, and yes. This Island and it's very history is directly linked with the
    powers of the mind. I myself can see certain results from various situations, and I
    speak with confidence.

    GARY
    A psychic, huh? That's pretty neat.

    ASH
    Yeah, how awesome.

    CALEB
    So...walk with me, I'll give you the history lesson in a nutshell...

    We cut to them walking along the museum wing devoted to history.

    CALEB
    An incredibly long time ago, centuries by this time, Humans and Pokemon had managed
    to form an uneasy bond with each other...but there was one constant thread. A hatred for
    psychics, both human and Pokemon alike, continued to thrive until one day hoards of people
    banded together to wipe out as many psychics as possible. And yes, that included Humans
    and Pokemon.

    ASH
    That's aweful!

    CALEB
    However, they underestimated the powers of the mind. Using telepathy, many psychics from around the world
    gathered at one specific port, and as they traveled to this port, they were to collect as many psychic Pokemon
    as they could. And once they all met, they traveled on a ship that somehow...miraculously...led them here.

    RICHIE
    So this place became a safe haven for Psychics?

    CALEB
    Yes, and due to the selective breeding, Seventy-five per cent of Humans here are born
    with any type of ESP, and an additional ten per cent are simply empathic to a degree.
    Psychic Pokemon make up Ninety-four per cent of the Island Pokemon, the other
    six per cent are Island native, and we've learned to make peace with them completely.

    GARY
    Wow. So...I'm looking at Human evolution in progress!

    ASH
    Human evolution? You mean he's going to evolve?

    Gary smiles at Ash with a spark in his eye.

    GARY
    No, silly. Human evolution is way different. It happens with genetics and outward conditions.
    You are born evolved, and your children may go forth from there if nature thinks you
    will help improve the Human GENOM.

    Caleb now looks at Gary with interest.

    CALEB
    You harness a mind of science?

    GARY
    Yeah, sort of. I'm mostly just dabbling in Pokemon DNA at the time, but I do know
    a little about the Human mind, and several Pokemon brains as well. ESP is not
    that uncommon where we are from.

    CALEB
    I'll have to introduce you to Chris...er, Professor Boxelder, the head of our very small
    science team here on Ganymede. They only recently began cataloging genetic codes
    and mapping DNA. I'm sure anything you can offer will be a huge help for them, as scientific
    knowledge and progress has been very limited here, as I'm sure you can imagine.

    GARY
    Sure.

    CALEB
    But I'm sorry...did you say Psychic-type Pokemon are common in your area?

    GARY
    Well...I didn't exactly say that, but yes they are.

    CALEB
    ...For generations we held the belief that the Human world wiped out all that remained
    and moved on.

    RICHIE
    No, that never happened. I seem to recall, at one point, reading about the point in time I
    believe you're referring to. And the crusaide against Psychics only lasted under a decade,
    when it was proven that psychic Pokemon Humans could benefit mankind. And I also
    remember reading about many species that seemingly went extinct around that time.
    Perhaps history was erroneous in saying that?

    Ash almost falls over, causing everyone to look at him. Ash, however, focuses on Richie and Gary.

    ASH
    What's going on here? This is the first conversation with either of you where I've had
    absolutely NO IDEA what's been said! I'm confused and I don't like it!

    GARY
    Chill out, Ashy.

    RICHIE
    Don't worry, we'll explain anything you don't understand later, okay?

    ASH
    Well, has he said how I can find my path to Pikachu yet?

    Richie and Gary sigh.

    CALEB
    Well, logic may be of some use to you. If it was a powerful psychic attack that brought
    you three here in the first place, perhaps finding a very powerful psychic Pokemon could
    be your answer?

    Ash raises his fist in cheerful determination.

    ASH
    ` Yeah! A powerful psychic Pokemon! How hard can it be?

    TRENT
    HA HA!! SURELY YOU KNOW NOTHING! MOST PSYCHIC POKEMON AREN'T EXACTLY
    THE EASIEST TO CATCH! And the ones that are, HA HA HA, are hardly what anyone would
    consider a competative psychic!

    CALEB
    Trent speaks the truth. I know of no local wild Pokemon that could be of any use to you...even in
    their final evolutionary states.

    ASH
    Oh...

    CALEB
    However, there *are* powerful psychic Pokemon on this island. Some came with us...
    some were simply attracted to us and ventured here on their own somehow, we have very little
    information still about all of them.

    TRENT
    This only makes life more interesting! I love seeing new interesting Pokemon while I'm
    meditating in nature.

    CALEB
    There is one way you can obtain a psychic Pokemon that has power behind it.

    ASH
    How?

    CALEB
    Some will summon the elemental spirits. But it can only be performed by those that are specially
    in tune with both nature and Pokemon.

    TRENT
    You saw my daughters and their friends perform one, REMEMBER?

    ASH
    Oh yeah!

    RICHIE
    That was strange, though. It didn't look like it even worked until we showed up and
    muttered a few words about the elemental spirits.

    GARY
    Right, then the ground shook and everything...it was insane.

    Caleb looks at the three, this time with a new look of wonderment.

    CALEB
    You mean to say you three allowed their ceremony to commence?

    RICHIE
    No...but I get the feeling you now know that's what happoned.

    Caleb smiles at Richie, obviously very much impressed by the trainer's ingenuity.

    CALEB
    Has anyone told you that you're perceptive?

    Richie thinks, then smiles.

    RICHIE
    Perhaps...but I don't think so. Thanks!

    CALEB
    You three should perform a summuning of your own. I have a strong feeling you
    three are special enough to be rewarded big time. And I also believe you three need
    to visit Enchantment City. One powerful Pokemon I know of...Bless...resides there.

    Ash raises his fist into the air, enthusiasm taking over once again.

    ASH
    Alright! That sounded like a clear path to me! First stop, Enchantment City, next Hoenn!

    GARY
    Ash, can we at least be polite and finish our conversation first?

    RICHIE
    Right, there's still much we should learn about this place.

    ASH
    Yeah, sorry.

    Caleb smiles at Ash.

    CALEB
    Ash, I want you to walk to the front door and move to the steps....right now.

    ASH
    Huh?

    CALEB
    No time to waste.

    Ash begins walking, and moments later the rest follow...only Caleb is smiling.

    Outside, Ash stops on the steps and looks around.

    ASH
    Okay...

    Suddenly, a ball of light slams down from the sky KABOOMING with a loud roar. Ash shields his eyes, but then looks on in awe. Richie and Gary are shocked.

    RICHIE
    What is this?

    From the wreckage, we suddenly see Jessie and James pop up, mostly unscratched.

    JESSIE
    Well, I'll say one thing...it was worse than Pikachu's thunderbolt.

    JAMES
    Luckily my delightful Chimecho helped us stay at peace...mostly.

    PIKACHU
    Pika!*
    (*Ash! I'm p!ssed but I just can't help it!)

    GARY/RICHIE
    Team Rocket!

    ASH
    PIKACHU!!!!!

    Ash, in slow motion, runs up to his Pikachu with pure happiness.

    Richie and Gary both smile. Richie sighs and grabs one of his Pokeballs.

    RICHIE
    Finally. Come on out, Sparkie.

    Sparkie emerges from his Pokeball.

    SPARKIE
    Pikaaa!*
    (*WHAT THE HELL RICHIE?)

    After Ash hugs Pikachu for a moment, the electric rodent frowns.

    PIKACHU
    PikaCHUUUUUUU*
    (*You think I forgot about what you did? Take this!)

    Pikachu shocks Ash. Sparkie sees this and looks at Richie, tiny sparks emitting from his cheeks.

    SPARKIE
    PikAAAAAA.......*
    (*Good idea. I'm pretty angry myself)

    RICHIE
    Whoa, Sparkie, why are you so mad?

    Meowth steps forward.

    MEOWTH
    If I may...Pikachu is angry because Ash saved those two twoips over him and
    if I'm understanding Sparkie correctly, he's angry because his trainer promised
    he'd have to be in his ball for a short while, but it turned out to be OVER A WEEK!
    I'D HATE DAT!

    Ash and Richie both look at their Pikachus with total sorrow etched across their faces.

    ASH
    Pikachu...I'm so sorry...it's just...I've never...uh...dealt?...with having to lose them
    like that before...it scared me. But you know I love you too.

    RICHIE
    Sparkie, I know I promised you that I would only keep you in your ball while Team Rocket
    had us captured...but when Ash lost his Pikachu, I didn't want to hurt his feelings by seeing
    you. Please understand.

    Ash stands, and gasps slightly as he looks at Richie with wide eyes.

    ASH
    Richie...I didn't know...you didn't have to...

    RICHIE
    Yes I did Ash.

    Gary looks at Richie...some small faint sense of resemblance of seeing this side of Richie emerges in Gary's face, and he offers Richie a small smile.

    GARY
    Yes he did, Ash. That was *very* sweet.

    Richie smiles at Gary.

    RICHIE
    Thanks Gary.

    TRENT
    Okay you three have very interesting chats, I'll give you that, BUT WHAT ABOUT
    THESE THREE THAT JUST SHOWED UP! ALL THESE NEW PEOPLE IN SUCH
    A SHORT TIME! MY HEAD IS SPINNING!

    CALEB
    You three are part of some sort of team...a team that walks the tightrope of good and evil.

    Jessie grins.

    JESSIE
    We prefer not to box ourselves in too much, thanks. But I am Jessie, the fabulously gorgeous.

    JAMES
    And I'm James, and if you don't mind my asking where are we?

    CALEB
    You are on the majestic Island of Ganymede. Welcome.

    JESSIE
    Ganymede? Where is that, James.

    JAMES
    Beats me. I never remember hearing about any island called that and I'm rather
    well-traveled.

    TRENT
    HAHAHA! I CAN'T BELIEVE I HAVE TO BREAK THE SAME BAD NEWS TWICE
    IN TWO DAYS!

    JESSIE
    And what news is that?

    TRENT
    THERE IS NO WAY OFF THE ISLAND!

    Ash and Richie, standing next to each other as they hold their Pikachus, both look at Trent with curiousity. Jessie and James, of course, react rather badly to the news.

    JESSIE/JAMES/MEOWTH
    WHAAAAAT??!!

    JESSIE
    So that's it? In the blink of an eye we find ourselves trapped....forever....on a beautiful
    island paradise. Irony at it's cruelist.

    JAMES
    I had such large plans for my bottle cap collection.

    MEOWTH
    Well, Unown neva said anything about knowing how ta get us back.

    JESSIE
    I just...suddenly feel so sorry for all my adoring fans back in Hoenn. I feel like...
    I let them down. All those fan letters will go unanswered by my secretaries...
    all those talk-show appearances cancled...the Jessie merchandizing bonanza
    dies before it begins.

    CALEB
    No need to fret, your friends already are set on a path to find their way home...
    you can simply go with them.

    Team Rocket look at Ash, Gary and Richie with uneasy silence.

    ASH
    WHAT??!? They are *NOT* my friends!

    JESSIE
    Yes, do we *LOOK* like we play with twerps?!?

    JAMES
    We're Team Rocket, recognize!

    CALEB
    Denial works both ways. Your paths have been on similar tracks for years now...
    are you so certain it can just be split apart so easily?

    Jessie and Ash both take pause at this, looking at each other with some trepidation.

    ASH
    Uh...hmmmm...

    RICHIE
    But Team Rocket is the reason were here in the first place.

    Caleb smiles at Richie, obviously loving his questions.

    CALEB
    Oh, I don't think so. For any of you to be brought here...required a
    chain of events far greater than our comprehension would allow us
    to understand.

    JESSIE
    Of all the...that has to be the most vaguely generalized statement I've heard
    in weeks!

    WOBBUFFET
    Wobba!*
    (*I've seen the chain of events slowly building ever since I joined up with these people. The fascinating thing is they play right into the master plan...I'd surmise it's Ho-Ho, but possibly Mew)

    MEOWTH
    Huh. Wobbuffet agrees with da man.

    JESSIE
    Wobbuffet hardly knows how to stay in it's Pokeball.

    CALEB
    Follow them to Enchantment City. You're paths are linked.

    JAMES
    Well, that would give us just enough time to snag some perfect exotic Pokemon!

    JESSIE
    Yes, that above EVERYTHING ELSE is paramount. Say...

    Jessie becomes pleasantly polite as she walks up to Caleb and curtsies.

    JESSIE
    Excuse me! Oh...man of great wisdom...would *you* know of anyplace
    nearby that features beyond adorable *and* beyond tough Pokemon?
    Certainly a man as handsome and intelligent as yourself would know.

    CALEB
    Ganymede is home to many Pokemon I'd fit into both categories.

    Jessies' and James' eyes go wide with excitement.

    ASH
    Really? This place sounds more AWESOME every minute!

    Richie looks at Ash and Gary, a smile on his face.

    RICHIE
    I have to admit...the thought of seeing all these mysterious new Pokemon...it's getting me
    pretty excited!

    ASH
    I kinda know how you feel!

    GARY
    Yeah, in a way we are insanely lucky. Were going to see Pokemon nobody else on the
    planet has ever even dreamed of, except here.

    Caleb withdraws what is obviously the Ganymede-version of the Pokedex.

    CALEB
    Here, see this? This is pretty much all the known information about Pokemon on
    this Island placed into a nifty handheld computer.

    ASH
    Whoa, how awesome! All three of us have a Pokedex! We have information on hudreds
    of Pokemon!

    Caleb thinks a moment. A smile comes to his face.

    CALEB
    I think a trade of information is in order, wouldn't you agree?

    RICHIE
    If we could find a way to link up our systems...we could totally swap. All of us!

    GARY
    But the technology is most likely way incompatable with ours.

    CALEB
    It just so happens I have the perfect Pokemon for such an occasion in my collection.
    Please, come to my office!

    As the trainers follow Caleb, Jessie leans over to James.

    JESSIE
    Can you believe that? All that vital information should be OURS, not the Twerps'!

    JAMES
    A Pokedex WOULD be ever-so-helpful in guiding us to the perfect Pokemon.

    MEOWTH
    Well den, we'll just have to do things da old fashioned way.

    Team Rocket smile evilly.

    Inside Caleb's office, a very posh room with a definitive flowing design to it, we see the man walk to a bookshelf with scores of Pokeballs on it. He grabs one, and spins around.

    CALEB
    Go! Technoflava!

    Technoflava, which looks like a large computer's motherboard, with what looks like a Webcam perched on top if it, obviously serving as an eye. Aesthically, it's very pretty; made of completely of green, purple, and blue.

    TECHNOFLAVA
    Tenchoflava.*
    (*Sup. Input data into me, big boy)

    Caleb sets Richie and Gary's Dexters' onto his desk, then sits Ash's Dextette next to them.

    CALEB
    Technoflava, scan these devices and imput any unique data from one into the rest.

    TECHNOFLAVA
    Technoflava*
    (*Oh yay. Boring Pokemon crap. Where's the saucy stuff you've been dl'ing lately?)

    GARY
    Whoa, it can do that?

    CALEB
    Technoflava has both machine and psychic characteristics. It blends the two
    rather well.

    In literally ten seconds, Tenchoflava is finished. Ash picks up Dextette and looks at the new Pokemon. Suddenly, an electronic hand grabs all four Pokedexs'. They all look in shock as the Team Rocket music begins.

    JESSIE
    Prepair for trouble, we're on a mission of knowledge and fact!

    JAMES
    Technology helps make it double, so here's our classic act!

    JESSIE
    To protect the world from devistation.

    JAMES
    To unite all people's within our nation.

    JESSIE
    To denounce the evils of truth and love!

    JAMES
    To extend our reach to the stars above.

    JESSIE
    Jessie!

    JAMES
    James!

    JESSIE
    Team Rocket, blast off at the speed of light!

    JAMES
    So surrender now, or prepair to fight!

    MEOWTH
    Meeeowth, that's right!

    WOBBUFFET
    WobbuFFET!*
    (*Make that double right!)

    CHIMECHO
    Chime Chime Chime...*
    (*Chime Chime Chime)

    ASH/RICHIE/GARY
    Team Rocket!

    PIKACHU
    Pikachu!*
    (*Ugh)

    JESSIE
    Correct! Now let's not quibble. It's obvious we need these more than you.
    James, Meowth, and Wobbuffet can each capture Pokemon for me this way.
    AND THEY'LL KNOW TO CAPTURE THE RIGHT ONES!

    JAMES
    Excuse me?

    JESSIE
    That's an interesting Pokemon! Let's capture it!

    CALEB
    What? You can't have my Technoflava!

    JESSIE
    Technoflava, huh? Let's see what MY Dextette says...

    DEXTETTE
    Technoflava, the Psychic Machine Pokemon. Technoflava is the unique offspring of a
    ROMRAM and a Psigel. It's said that Technoflava constantly think of ways to become
    human but to no avail.

    JESSIE
    Oooh, I simply must have it! A Technoflava of my own. Gooooo, Seviper!

    Seviper emerges, looking fierce.

    SEVIPER
    SeeeeeVIIIIIPEEEERRRR*
    (*Please FEEED MEEEE!)

    Caleb folds his arms and shakes his head.

    CALEB
    Technoflava, use Cha Cha Cha on Seviper.

    TECHNOFLAVA
    Technoflava*
    (*Awwe. Phallic Pokemon are fun!)

    Technoflava begins dancing and jerks with speed around Seviper many times, confusing it. Then, it smashes into it, causing it to fly back at Jessie with defeat.

    CALEB
    Technoflava, target the four that are holding the stolen Pokedex's. Use Fashion Aside on them,
    and use Magnetic Sparkage to bring us back our property.

    Technoflava begins spinning rapidly, with white stars flying out from it. The Pokedex's float out of Team Rocket's hands and back to the desk.

    JESSIE
    How dare you!

    Technoflava stops completely, and looks at Team Rocket. They quiet up, obviously freaked. Technoflava then sends out what appears to be energy beams, which hits it's target precisely.

    CALEB
    Heh, Fashion Aside's power level is based on Technoflava's opinion of your fashion.

    JESSIE
    Obviously machine's can't understand human fashion, ow!

    The beam grows wider, and Team Rocket go crashing out the sky-window.

    JAMES
    Did our fashion statements just get dissed by a machine?

    JESSIE
    If that mechanical failure knew what we had to work with, it would be beaming
    a different tune. I refuse to wear all black!

    JAMES
    Or maybe everyone thinks they're a fashion critic.

    TEAM ROCKET
    Looks like Team Rocket's blasting off again!

    ***

    Ash looks over to Caleb with amazement.

    ASH
    Wow Caleb, that Technoflava is so AWESOME!

    CALEB
    And I like both of your Pikachus. They're so cute!

    ASH/RICHIE
    Aren't they?

    Gary smirks at their happy answer which was in unison.

    CALEB
    Have you three considered entering the Psi Battles? If you summon the elementals,
    it would be a true shame if you didn't!

    ASH
    Psi battles?

    CALEB
    They somewhat keep in tradition with classic Pokemon battles, except here we focus on
    psi battling more than causing physical damage.

    RICHIE
    How do you enter?

    CALEB
    You must collect three badges from any of the gyms on this island.

    ASH
    Only three? I can do that in my sleep!

    Richie and Gary both look at Ash with less-than-impressed looks on their faces.

    CALEB
    Our Gym Leaders may disagree, but we'll let fate decide if you so choose.

    ASH
    I'll consider it Caleb, thank you.

    CALEB
    Now, I suggest you three start for Enchantment City.

    TRENT
    Yes, it's easy to get to if you simply take the path out of the north side of town.

    RICHIE
    Thank you both so much, were really grateful for all your help.

    Caleb smiles.

    CALEB
    The pleasure was mine, for sure. The information you've given me in my Pokedex is
    enough to keep the science circles active for quite awhile.

    ASH
    And Trent, thank you for letting us stay at your place. I hope we can see you and
    your family again someday!

    Trent laughs loudly and slaps Ash hard on the back, causing the boy to yelp in surprise.

    TRENT
    HAHAHA! It was nothing, boy, NOW YOU THREE BETTER GET GOING!

    The three wave good-bye and exit the office, leaving Caleb and Trent inside. Ash, with Pikachu on his sholder, is looking happier and more energetic than he has the entire time on Ganymede so far. Richie and Gary walk next to each other, watching him with amusement.

    RICHIE
    He's finally back to being himself again.

    GARY
    I know, I'm so relieved.

    Gary smiles at Richie.

    GARY
    I'll let you in on a secret. Blue.

    RICHIE
    Huh?

    GARY
    My favorite color is blue. The same color as your eyes.

    Richie ***** his head slightly to the side and looks at Gary with a small smile. Gary returns the smile, and watches as Richie approaches him and whispers quickly into his ear.

    RICHIE (whisper)
    My favorite colors are shiny black and shiny metal. I think you'd look hot in both. Tehe!

    Richie winks then runs forward to Ash, leaving a very shocked...and slightly aroused...Gary to watch him go.

    ...And, unbeknownst to any of them, the cute little Sphinx-like Pokemon watches them from the bushes, smiling.

    SHI
    Shiiiiii*
    (*Excellent, they are on their way...it's all coming together!)

    NARRATOR
    With a destination set, our heroes find themselves free to explore all that Ganymede has to offer.
    And with Pikachu safely back in Ash's arms, the eager trainer feels confident to experience it all!

    Well written! I like the story already but one question: are we going to see Brock, May and Max return and actually play a part in the story?

    i'm loving this story! I rate it a 10/10 (ok a 15 out of 10 if possible).


    Thanks to Aurora Wish for making this card- totally awesome.

    We open on Ash, Richie and Gary as they walk along a dirt road in the middle of a forest. All three appear to be in good moods. Ash is about three feet ahead of the others, his enthusiasm transparent. Gary eventually slows up a bit and sticks his tongue out a moment, holding his hand to his stomache.

    GARY
    AaaaaAAAAAaaaash! We've been keeping this pace up for almost an hour! And on what?

    Richie slows up as well, nodding.

    RICHIE
    Yeah, perhaps we shouldn't have left Cherry Bust so quickly.

    Ash stops as he turns around to face them.

    ASH
    Oh...yeah...I think I understand...

    We hear three loud grumbles, and all three clutch their stomaches in unison.

    ASH/GARY/RICHIE
    I'M STARVING!!!!

    Fade to BLACK.

    Pokemon: <3Shi
    Chapter 6

    We open on a Blank screen with the episode title appearing; SHI DOESN'T LIVE HERE ANYMORE!

    ASH (voice)
    Shi does live here...anymore!!!!

    ***

    We cut to the three as they continue walking, all looking famished.

    NARRATOR
    While making their way to Enchantment City, our heroes find themselves thinking
    about one thing more and more...

    Ash, looking sad, clutches his stomache with exageration.

    ASH
    Oh...so hungry...

    RICHIE
    I knew we should have stopped for supplies. Next town my backpack is getting restocked.

    Gary stops, and turns his head as his nose twitches.

    GARY
    Hold up guys...I smell something...

    Gary's eyes go all misty, and he dreamily begins walking to his left into a field.

    GARY
    Come on! I smell something delicious!

    Ash and Richie raise their noses and both take a big whif. In seconds they are mirroring Gary's actions.

    ASH
    Ya think it could be a resteraunt?

    RICHIE
    In the forest? Unlikely.

    They come across a campsight, where a big black pot is cooking over a fire. However, nobody appears to be at the campsight.

    GARY
    Well, it looks like nobody's here.

    RICHIE (shouting)
    HELLO?

    Ash walks up to the pot, looking at it with curiousity.

    ASH
    Who would just leave a fire going in the forest?

    Suddenly, a male about Ash's age jumps out from a tree, landing on his feet and scaring the crap out of the trainer. He has lavender hair, styled similar to Richie's except longer and shaggier. His clothes are rather catchy, mixing lavenders and light blues together. He looks at Ash with anger shooting out of his eyes.

    ASH
    Aaaah!

    TOMMY
    Aha! So you three are the ones eating my food! I knew you'd be back if I made more!

    Tommy angrily approaches Ash, and within moments Ash's eyes go wide with suprise as he is TUGGED HARD out of the way forcibly by Richie and Gary, who then proceed to stand with their arms crossed in his place, looking at their accuser with adversarial stares.

    GARY
    We didn't steal anything.

    RICHIE
    Yeah, and if you have a problem with Ash, you'll deal with us first. Understand?

    Ash, rubbing the bump on his head from being flung to the ground, looks at Richie and Gary with bewilderment as he stands.

    ASH
    Gee, thanks...I think.

    Richie and Gary both smile at Ash momentarily, completely oblivious to how hard they had tossed him backwards. Tommy stares at them for a moment, then a small smile comes to his lips.

    TOMMY
    Hey, I'm sorry. I guess it's wrong of me to accuse you three like I did...I was just SO MAD
    someone ate my food!

    Richie smiles and lets his guard down. Gary sizes Tommy up, perceiving him to be non-threatening, and lets his crossed-arms loosen up a bit.

    RICHIE
    That's okay! I guess it did look kind of suspicious with us approaching your pot. Hi, I'm Richie!

    TOMMY
    My name is Tommy.

    ASH
    I'm Ash, from Pallet Town!

    GARY
    Gary. To be honest, the wonderful smell of your cooking is what brought us here.

    Tommy looks at his food.

    TOMMY
    Well, seeing as how I just acted like a big jerk, you three are more-than-welcome to
    join me in lunch! I'm making mushroom soup!

    ASH
    Awesome! Thanx Tommy!

    We cut to the four as they sit on a blanket, enjoying the soup.

    GARY
    So Tommy, why are you camped out here? Cherry Bust isn't that far away.

    TOMMY
    I know, I'm from there. I wanna enter the psi-battles this year, and I'm trying to
    summon the elementals and be blessed a great Pokemon!

    ASH
    Oh yeah! We've seen one of those performed!

    RICHIE
    Remember Ash? Caleb told us to perform one also!

    Tommy's face brightens, and he looks at the three with delight.

    TOMMY
    Oh! We should all do it together! Do you know how much easier it would make it?

    GARY
    Would it?

    TOMMY
    The power of four souls will help much more than one.

    Ash smiles widely.

    ASH
    It sounds awesome, we totally should!

    Tommy smiles, delighted.

    TOMMY
    You will? GREAT! Wait...you three do know how to summon the elementals, right?

    Ash, Richie and Gary all look at each other and shrug.

    ASH
    How hard can it be?

    TOMMY
    It can take hours...days...sometimes weeks.

    Ash, Richie and Gary's eyes go wide with frightened shock.

    ASH/RICHIE/GARY
    WHAT?!?

    TOMMY
    We better get set up quickly then!

    Ash looks at Richie with less than enthused glances.

    ASH
    Weeks? I can't wait that long!

    Richie places his hand onto Ash's sholder.

    RICHIE
    Remember what Caleb said...it could help us get home!

    ASH
    Oh yeah, I guess we have no choice.

    About twenty yards away, behind large shrubbery, lie a very fuflilled Jessie, James, Meowth, and Wobbuffet.

    JESSIE
    Wow, nothing like mushroom soup to fill one up properly.

    JAMES
    It was rather tasty...but what do you think the twerps mean by summoning the elementals?

    MEOWTH
    Sounds like a science lesson or somethin'.

    WOBBUFFET
    Wobba wobba!*
    (*Summoning the elemental spirit Pokemon? I am cosmically aware of this. Most powerful psychics like myself can feel their presence anywhere we go)

    MEOWTH
    Wobbuffet's sayin' it's got sometin' ta do wit powerful psychic Pokemon...

    JESSIE & JAMES
    Powerful psychic Pokemon?

    Ash and Gary are near a small stream, washing the plates and eating utencils.

    ASH
    This will be so cool, I wonder what awesome Pokemon I'll get?

    GARY
    As long as it gets us home, I'll be happy.

    Behind the two, a small sphinxish Pokemon floats down from a tree, watching the two with interest.

    ASH
    What do you think you'll do first when we get back?

    Gary thinks a moment, then continues washing a bowl.

    GARY
    I guess I never thought that far forward, Ash.

    Ash looks at Gary strangely.

    ASH
    Uh, what do you mean?

    Gary doesn't return the look, but does shrug slightly.

    GARY
    I dunno. I have lots of unfinished work back on Saida Island. I'm really not
    supposed to tell *anybody* this, but whatever. We've cloned an Aerodactyl.
    And...I've been overseeing several other extinct Pokemon cloning missions.

    Ash contemplates this, then stops washing and sits down.

    ASH
    Cloning Pokemon...why does that sound so familiar to me?

    Gary stops as well, and turns to Ash with curiosity.

    GARY
    Familiar? *I'm* the first to successfully clone a Pokemon! Check the web!

    Ash is now staring into the stream, looking completely lost in thought.

    ASH
    ...I don't think so.

    Hearing this causes Gary to now sit as well, and he looks at Ash with a look of annoying anger.

    GARY
    What are you saying? I came up with the answer to the cellular growth problems
    all on my own! That was holding back the entire scientific community and *I*
    understood the answer!

    Ash looks at Gary for a moment, and a hint of sadness can be seen in his face. He seems unsure if he should say more or keep silent.

    ASH
    That's...that's really awesome, Gary. But...I've met many cloned Pokemon.

    Gary sweatdrops, and his face grows expressionless.

    GARY
    Many?

    ASH
    Team Rocket cloned a Mew, and it cloned a way lot of Pokemon, including my
    Pikachu!

    Gary now looks at the stream, and allows his sholders to droop down with sudden defeat.

    GARY
    Wow...are you sure?

    ASH
    It happoned not long after we left Pallet Town...but, my memory on that is fuzzy.

    GARY
    So...there's some scientist out there who beat me to it.

    ASH
    Maybe...but I still think what you're doing is so awesome!

    Gary sighs, still looking forward sadly.

    GARY
    Thanks Ash, I was hoping you'd be impressed when you saw Aerodactyl.

    Ash smiles at Gary happily, and leans over and lightly rests his head on the depressed teen's sholder. Gary moves his eyes to see Ash's happy face, and he looks back at the stream with a small smile.

    Shi begins floating back up, seemingly intrigued from the conversation.

    Richie and Tommy are carrying several branches and logs in their arms, walking at a steady pace in the forest.

    RICHIE
    So if having a Pokemon from this summoning is so great, why doesn't everybody do it?

    TOMMY
    Well, most people aren't special enough to be granted one. I think an Island-wide survey
    once suggested about, ten to fifteen per cent are likely to get one.

    RICHIE
    Interesting percentage. What do you mean by special?

    TOMMY
    That's more of a debatable topic. It's assumed that those whose heart is pure,
    and at one with their Pokemon, are the intended recipients...but there are *lots*
    of people here who fit that description but can't get one.

    RICHIE
    So it may be something else?

    TOMMY
    I think it could.

    They drop the wood onto the fire, and watch as it grows brighter. Tommy walks to his backpack, and retrieves a small vile from one of the side pockets.

    TOMMY
    This is a perfume said to soothe the elemental spirits as they hover between this world
    and wherever it is they're from. If you could sprinkle just a little all over the place...I'd really
    appreciate it.

    Richie grabs it, and looks over the bottle with interest.

    RICHIE
    Sure.

    Shi watches Tommy walk away, and floats down behind Richie. A tiny blue jewel over Shi's forhead shimmers and turns purple, then red, then finally green. She's eyes glow brightly, and then he closes them slowly.

    Richie sprays the perfume on some leaves, and begins walking for another tree. He places his hand to his head quickly, his face reflecting confusion.

    RICHIE
    Whoa, what's happening...*yawn*

    Richie begins yawning widely, and wearily sits down. He yawns again, and falls backwards, landing softly on the grass. He looks up at the sky a moment, then closes his eyes..

    ***

    Richie finds himself standing in a pitch black area, nothingness surrounding him.

    RICHIE
    Hello?

    A hand taps Richie's sholder, and he spins around to see Shi, assuming the Red form, smiling at him with a small giggle. Richie lets his guard down, and smiles back.

    SHI
    Sorry Richie, I just wanted to talk to you for a moment. Is that alright?

    Richie brings his hands to his hips, and loops his thumbs into his beltholes. His blue eyes stare at Shi with calm wonderment. Then, after allowing Shi to await his answer for several moments, Richie finally offers him a grin and nods.

    RICHIE
    Of course, Shi. What is it?

    Shi bites his lower lip, thinking of the appropriate thing to say.

    SHI
    Well, would you believe me if I said today could very well be one of the most important days
    of my life? I'm just soo...

    Shi brightens up, unable to control his emotions. He cutely hops up and down a bit.

    SHI (cont)
    Excited...anxious...it's just so perfect!

    Richie laughs, amused by Shi's unusually glompish behavior.

    RICHIE
    What is perfect?

    Shi grins widely and giggles again.

    SHI
    I don't know if you could understand yet.

    RICHIE
    Well...tell me what I need to know then.

    Shi takes a small step closer, making the two inches apart.

    SHI
    I can't...not yet. And besides, it wouldn't be fair to announce such information
    without Ash and Gary here.

    RICHIE
    Then why did you just bring me.

    Shi takes a small breath, and raises his eyes innocently.

    SHI
    I can tell you this. I am heartly overjoyed that you three will be my owners.
    And the reason I am focusing so much on you, is because...

    RICHIE
    Yes?

    SHI
    Because you represent something...about myself that I don't understand.

    RICHIE
    How do you mean?

    SHI
    ...I've observed your counterparts in other universes, I've even known some of them...
    but you're a bit different Richie. I've come to realize this...you, Ash...Gary...all three
    of you share one thing in common that is unique from every other parallel variation
    of you three out there.

    Richie takes in the information, his eyes growing wider.

    RICHIE
    Really! How?

    SHI
    That...isn't something I have full knowledge of yet. It would seem that you three
    somehow...I don't know...grabbed just a *little* extra essence of yourselves when
    being created...it's as if...being around you is allowing me to finally understand the
    truest selves of Ash or Gary or....you.

    Richie blushes slightly, which causes Shi to blush right back.

    SHI
    I'm sorry...I was just so excited, I wish you could know...

    Richie allows the tiniest giggle to escape his throat, and he adjusts his hat.

    RICHIE
    So what is it about me that reminds you of yourself?

    Shi shakes his head quickly and wink flirtatiously.

    SHI
    Oh no, I didn't say remind...I said represent.

    Richie allows his eyes to venture up and down Shi a moment, intrigued by his words.

    RICHIE
    I love a good mystery.

    Shi inches closer to Richie, touches his nose quickly, then walks away.

    SHI
    By the way, you may want to help cheer Gary up. He just got knocked down a peg.

    Richie, at the sound of Gary's name, changes his expression.

    RICHIE
    Gary?

    Shi spins around quickly.

    SHI
    I heard that.

    Richie nods and shrugs.

    RICHIE
    I said Gary.

    SHI
    Yes, but it's how you said his name. You hate him with a fury, yet you also want to
    express eternal mutual devotion vows.

    The breath from Richie is literally taken away, and he places his hands to his stomache with dreadful shock.

    RICHIE
    You got all that from hearing me say his name?

    Shi ***** his head to the side.

    SHI
    Yes. Very interesting. But I wonder, does Gary feel the same way about you?

    Richie places his hands into his pockets, and nods slowly. His eyes gloss over to a contemplative stare.

    RICHIE
    I think so. We both love the same guy...and I think were both jealous of the fact that
    he hasn't given us any indication he likes one over the other.

    SHI
    And why do you see that as a bad thing?

    Richie looks at Shi with a now slightly hurt look, his blue eyes now looking at the floor sadly.

    RICHIE
    When I met Ash, for the first time...ever...I completely stepped out of my world and
    got lost in another. And it was the happiest moment in my entire life when I found
    out he felt exactly the same way. I love Ash, Shi. He's filled in holes I didn't even know
    were there...like a completed puzzle.

    SHI
    And how does Gary fit into this?

    RICHIE
    When I first realized that Ash and Gary had a thing going, I was silently furious
    at Ash, until I learned it started before I even knew him. I mean, shouldn't I be
    mad at Ash for decieving me?

    Shi is now the one to look sad, for reasons unknown.

    SHI
    As far as Gary goes, he feels mostly the same as you do. You have no idea how
    much it pains me to see you two rival over such a trivial thing...especially when you
    both crave each other with a desire that goes even further than Ash.

    RICHIE
    Ash's heart is trivial?

    SHI
    Ash has a big heart Richie...and how could he choose one over the other? You're both
    emmaculately beautiful.

    Richie gives Shi another look of wonderment, and before he can respond a bright flash of light envelops him.

    ***

    Richie awakens to see Ash and Gary over him, shaking him awake with concearn.

    ASH
    Are you okay Richie?

    GARY
    He's fine Ash...looks like he decided to nap on the job! Hmmph!

    Richie rubs his head wearily, and stands.

    RICHIE
    I guess I fell asleep...I don't remember.

    He picks up the bottle, and holds it away.

    RICHIE
    Perhaps this stuff made me drowsy?

    Ash smells it, and smiles.

    ASH
    Is smells really nice.

    A snapping twig alerts the three that Tommy has returned, and they see he is holding burning incense and a blanket.

    ***

    All four are sitting shirtless on the blanket Indian-style, in a circle so Ash is facing Tommy, and Richie is facing Gary.

    TOMMY
    Okay, join hands.

    The four join hands, and close their eyes.

    TOMMY
    Oh great ether, if our hearts should please you with the song of our essences...please
    grant us our destiny's desire.

    Tommy nods at the three, and they all begins chanting.

    TOMMY/ASH/GARY/RICHIE
    Earth, Air, Fire, Water, Lightness and Dark, Creation and Rot...

    They all open their eyes with suprise as the ground begins rumbling.

    TOMMY
    No way! It's starting already?

    They stand, and hold each other as the ground begins shaking.

    GARY
    Is...is that bad?

    TOMMY
    It's impossible! I've heard of it happening in less than an hour...but AFTER
    THE FIRST CHANT???!!!???

    The wind is now howling ferociously, and lightning crackles in the sky.

    ASH
    Ahhh!!!!

    Ash points to two brightly glowing orbs in the sky. One hovers near Tommy, the other hovers near Ash, Richie and Gary.

    RICHIE
    Look at that!

    The balls each materialize into a Pokemon. Tommy's looks like a Comedy/Drama Mask, and the other is Shi.

    Shi floats up to Ash, nuzzles him on the nose which causes the trainer to laugh quickly, then it moves over to Gary and spins around him excitedly, flying through his spiky hair with happiness, then finally it flies into Richie's chest, giving the trainer the happiest hug he can manage.

    SHI
    Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!!!!!!!!!*
    (YAY! I finally belong to all three of you! At last! I love you guys!)

    Ash takes out his Dextette, and points it at Shi.

    DEXTETTE
    Shi, the lonely unique Pokemon. Shi is the pre-evolved form of ShiShi. Shi has been
    known to exsist every few hundred years, searching for another of it's kind. It's
    origin is a complete mystery.

    Ash smiles cutely at his new Pokemon.

    ASH
    ....Hello Shi!

    The ground stops rumbling and Tommy looks at his Pokemon with awe.

    TOMMY
    Whoa...I got a Thespia!

    Ash points his Destette at Thespia.

    DEXTETTE
    Thespia, the dramatic Pokemon. Thespia has the ability to make it's target happy
    or depressed depending on it's intentions.

    ASH
    Whoa, cool!

    Richie looks around momentarily.

    RICHIE
    So...only 2 Pokemon came from the ritual?

    GARY
    Yeah, shouldn't there be two more?

    A buzzing can be heard, and Tommy opens his eyes and gasps.

    TOMMY
    No way! Look!

    The three look over with curiousity, and see two bright luminous balls are now hovering towards them.

    BALL #1
    ....sssooooorrrrrryyyyyyyy wwweeeeeeerrrreeeee lllllaaaaaaaaattteeeeee.......

    BALL #2
    ......IIIInnnteeerrrddiiiimmeeeennnnssiiioonnaaall l ttrrraaavvveeellll iiissss hhhaaaaarrrrddd.........

    The glowing orbs near them majestically, then suddenly the Team Rocket music begins.

    BALL #1
    ....Prepair for trouble on a trip from The Other Side....

    BALL #2
    ...And make it double as we offer you a ride...

    The first orb is now popped by a pin, allowing Jessie to jump out with pride.

    JESSIE
    To protect the world from devistation!

    James does the same as Jessie.

    JAMES
    To unite our peoples in every nation!

    JESSIE
    To denounce the evils of truth and love!

    JAMES
    To extend our reach from the stars above.

    JESSIE
    Jessie!

    ` JAMES
    James!

    JESSIE
    Team Rocket is summoning the elements at the speed of light!

    JAMES
    The fates have bestowed us your Pokemon, so we'll be taking them allright?

    Meowth falls down and poses.

    MEOWTH
    Meeeowth, sounds about right!

    Wobbuffet pops up next to Meowth.

    WOBBUFFET
    WobbufFET!*
    (*In the Navy...come on and join your fellow man!)

    CHIMECHO
    Chime chime chiiiiimmeeee*
    (*Chime chime chime!*)

    Ash, Richie and Gary all gasp.

    ASH/GARY/RICHIE
    Team Rocket!!!!

    JESSIE
    Very good! Now tell me what *this* is!

    Meowth uses an electronic net to capture Shi and Thespia.

    GARY
    No!

    TOMMY
    My Thespia!

    Ash and Richie both take a step forward.

    ASH/RICHIE
    (Pikachu/Sparkie), thunderbolt!

    Pikachu and Sparkie both jump off their trainer's sholder, and begin sparking.

    PIKACHU/SPARKIE
    PPPPPPPPPIIIIIIIIIIIKKKKKKKKKKKKAAAAAAAAAACCCCCHHH HHHHUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!!!!!

    The electricity hits the net, but discharges.

    JAMES
    Really...electric shocks? Can't you come up with something more original?

    Gary reaches into his pocket and withdraws a Pokeball, which he throws into the air.

    GARY
    Umbreon, come out now!

    UMBREON
    Umbreon!*
    (*Gary! How's my little Oaky-Wokey?)

    GARY
    Umbreon, use Secret Power on Team Rocket!

    Umbreon's golden rings begin glowing, and he targets TR with a scowl.

    MEOWTH
    Uh oh.

    The powerful attack emanated from Umbreon and soared at the thieves, hitting them with insane amounts of power. Meowth's controls explode, which cause the group to go soaring into the air.

    JESSIE
    No fair! *I* want an elemental whatever Pokemon!

    JAMES
    Well, that ritual they performed looked awefully simple...I'm sure we can have one in no time.

    WOBBUFFET
    Woooobbuffet!*
    (*Yeah right. With the Karma you three carry around, it would take decades for the fates to send you one. Ha)

    MEOWTH
    *sigh* Thanks Wobbuffet, that's exactly what I wanted to hear....

    TEAM ROCKET
    Team Rocket's blasting off without an Elemental Spirit Pokemon!

    ***

    Tommy hugs his Pokemon as Shi circles around the three trainers with joy.

    ASH
    You know...I'm starting to think maybe Shi...was given to all three of us...

    Tommy walks over to them and speaks up.

    TOMMY
    Well...it...has happoned before...but...usually to couples....uh...

    Tommy seems to be a little red in the face as he stutters.

    TOMMY
    ...I guess it would apply to threesome couples as well...

    Ash, Gary, and Richie all look at each other with sudden suprise, all three sweatdropping and blushing.

    ASH/GARY/RICHIE
    Threesome couple?

    Shi happily spins around the three again, and laughs with unadulterated glee. It then strikes a victory pose.

    SHI
    Shiiiiii!*
    (*YEAH! I caught a Gary, Ash and Richie!)

    Mou, I finished up to chapter four, but I need to sleep, so I'll read the rest after I've slept. =3

    Anyways, to review what I've read thus far... I love it! I normally stay away from script format, but you make it work! The humor, the romance, the angst, it's all fitting together so perfectly while stay true to the spirit of the anime (dubbed at least). And the translations for the pokemon? Priceless. XD

    I can't wait to finish reading it! <3

    *happy*

    I decided on script format when I realized I had a lot of plot going...essentially an entire season's worth....and for me to get into the characters' thoughts, ect., would require way more typing than my poor faggy mind could handle. And yes, I try to make it as flowing as possible...glad it didn't turn you off.

    And yeah, I went for the dub mostly. It's what I'm mostly familiar with, cuz I have to go to such great lengths to see the version I'd rather see, but oh well.

    Thank you X 1000 and I hope you like the rest also!

    Alrighy, I finished reading it all...

    And I swear to every deity imaginable, if you stop this fic, I stop mine! [/threat]

    Seriously, I love it to death. It's so damn cute I can't even explain it. The pokemon translations always crack me up, and Shi is too cute for words! The new characters and new pokemon are uber interesting. Five star rating baby!

    <3 I eagerly await the next chapter.

    XD, this is one of the most surreal fanfics I’ve ever read. XD, I like Tommy. He’s into the occult. Awwww, poor Gary isn’t as original as he thought. Poor baby. I think you made Richie the most level headed of them all. It makes sense to me. I knew Shi and Richie would have another private rendezvous. There is something going on between those two, LOL.

    I love how Shi is the one who suggests that Ash is destined to be with both Richie and Gary. LOL on Shi being a pokémon. I really enjoyed this chapter. YAY, they’re a couple now!
