To let you all know, I wont tell you what the call from Ash was about ntil later.
And as for Ocs, I am serious, they have to be related to someone on the show, preferably who was seen n at least a few episodes (Brock, Max, etc.) THEY CAN NOT HAVE 2 OC PARENTS!
And a special thanks to EmeraldCelebi13 for without her there would be no chapter, literally.
"Now introducing, Mirabelle Brown of Pewter City!" Vivian announced, as Stella arrived on stage in her Contest tuxedo.
Stella smiled, taking a pokeball from her waist belt. "All right, Sinbad, the stage is yours!"
The red and white sphere opened as the Totodile jumped out, grinning widely. "Totodile!"
"Okay, then, use Bubblebeam!" Stella called, directing him with her gloved hand.
Sinbad nodded in response, shooting out a spray of bubbles, that bounced and bobbed on the stage. Next, Sinbad used Fury Swipes, pushing the bubbles all together, so that it formed a cluster that soon turned into one big bubble.
"Great, now finish with Bite!" Totodile raised his big jaws, charging up their power. Finally, he stopped and rammed into the giant bubble with his teeth, bursting it. This caused a tiny drizzle of miniature bubbles to fall onto the crowd. "Ta da!"
Vivian smiled. "That was a pretty nice appeal, perfect for those who enjoy blowing soap bubbles. Now, what do our judges think?"
"It was remarkable." Mr. Sukizo said, smiling.
"I loved it, and the fact that we didn't get wet." The Nurse Joy of Viridian City remarked.
Mr. Contesta nodded in agreement. "A fine appeal."
Stella left the stage, smiling, Sinbad following after her. Backstage, Kim hurried to greet her new rival in the waiting room.
"That was really good, Stella!" Kim complimented, smiling.
Stella smiled in response. "Thanks."
On the TV that showed who was on stage, Sean Rhapsodos was up, letting his Roselia out of her pokeball.
Kim stared. "That guy is so rude and pompous acting."
She heard Stella make a sound that sounded like a growl or groan. "Tell me about it. I so want to humiliate him."
"Why?" Kim asked, turning to her. "Do you know him very well?"
"No, not too well." Stella replied, her eyes still on the screen. "He's my enemy and rival, though. Ever since that contest in Pewter City, my hometown."
"Wait, you have a contest ribbon?" Kim asked in surprise.
Stella shook her head. "Because of that jerk, no. My very first contest was in Pewter City. I was so excited, and I thought that I would win for sure. I made it past the appeal round, with the judges commenting on how skilled I was for a beginner. So, that boosted my confidence and pride way up. I made it to the final round, my opponent being none other than Sean himself. I was so excited, and as the battle went on, Sinbad was about to win. Then, Sean did this; he gave me this smug smile, and commanded his Shinx to use Shock Wave. Sinbad was instantly defeated, and Sean won."
"So, you hate him because he beat you? That kind of makes you seem like a sore _"
Stella sighed. "I'm furious at him because he tried to make me feel down. He was smirking like a fiend when he won. He knew for a fact that he had put me down on TV, and at my first contest, too." She sighed again. "And ever since then, he has been my enemy."
"How long ago did this happen?" Kim asked, confused.
Stella paused, thinking about it. "Just last week, I believe."
Sean finished his appeal, which was a combination of Magical Leaf and Solar Beam. Sean's was finished, and Maiku arrived on stage, doing a blazing appeal with his Magby, using the moves Fire Spin and Flame Wheel. After a couple more coordinators did their appeals, the results came for who made it to the next round. The screen showed eight darkened faces. The faces were shown, and Kim, Stella, Maiku, and Sean were among those who made it.
"Well, looks like we made it, Kimberly." Stella said, as the screen decided on who battled who. "Listen, if we face off with each other, no hard feelings."
Kim nodded. "Okay, may the best coordinator win."
"If I happen to lose, you better kick Sean's butt for me, got it?"
"Yeah, I'll try." Kim smiled at her newest friend/rival. Stella was little too bold and over confident, but at the same time she seemed like a good friend, and someone who would stick up for people.
The results on the screen came in, and Kim would be facing off against a teenage girl, while Stella would be battling Maiku.
Maiku made his way through the crowd to the two girls. "Looks like we'll be battling."
Stella nodded, turning to him. "I'm not going easy on you, just because you're my friend."
"Same here, Stella." Maiku replied.
Sean's battle was first, and he instantly beat his opponent's Rattata with his Torchic. After one more battle, Stella and Maiku were next. The two friends stood on either side of the battlefield, a pokeball held in their hands.
"With five minutes on the clock, begin!" Vivian announced, blowing a whistle.
Stella threw her pokeball up. "Retro, the stage is yours!"
Maiku did the same. "Let's win this, Teddiursa!"
Retro was an orange and white puppy Pokemon called a Growlithe, with Teddiursa being a light brown bear Pokemon.
"Okay, use Fury Swipes, Teddiursa!" Maiku called.
"Teddi? Teddiursa!" Teddiursa powered up his claws and charged at Retro, arms stretched out.
Stella waited for the Pokemon to get closer, and called out an order. "Use Dig to escape, Retro.
Retro nodded, digging down into the ground, missing the attack. As Teddiursa looked down the hole that he had made, Retro came back up, attacking with headbutt. Teddiursa again attempted at using Fury Swipes, and was able to scratch Retro a few times before the fire type jumped away.
"Use Flamethrower from the air!" Stella called.
"Growl, growlithe!" Retro shot out a stream of fire as he landed on the battleground.
Teddiursa was hit, and knocked back. "Teddi..."
In the waiting room, Kim sat on one of the couches, Eevee on her lap. Sinbad and Squirtle were getting along well, playing with a few other Pokemon, around the room.
"Stella sure is tough." She whispered to Eevee. She looked over to where Sean stood, leaning against the wall with his Torchic standing beside him. As he turned in her direction she quickly turned away, blushing out of surprising embarrassment.
Back onstage, the battle was going strong, with Stella looking as if though she would win.
"Use Flame Wheel, once more!" She called.
Running until there was a rolling wheel of fire, Retro attacked Teddiursa who began crying. Retro stopped, and stared at this, only to get hit with Focus Punch.
"Darn it!" Stella muttered. "He was using Fake Tears."
"Growlithe!" Retro used Headbutt, finally sending Teddiursa to the ground.
"Time's up!" Vivian cried. "And the one going to the next round is...Mirabelle Brown!"
Stella and Retro both bowed before shaking Maiku's hand. "That was an intense battle."
Maiku nodded, holding his Teddiursa in his arms. "I'll win next time, for sure."
Kim greeted the pair as they arrived in the waiting room. "Wow, you were really good, Stella."
"I guess I am." She replied, grinning.
Kim won her battle, Eevee defeating her opponent's Oddish. The results for the semifinals came in, and Stella would be battling Kim!
Who is going to win? Stella or Kim? Well I'm not going to tell you just yet =P
