Warning: Lots of things to be explained later.
Ash sat on the bed in their hotel room, dressed in a brown jacket with matching trousers and black dress shoes. A brown fedora sat on his head with a gray and black striped band, a silver feather stuck out of the band on the right side. A white undershirt with a black tie completed the look.
A small blue and black Pokémon was asleep in his lap. "That was harder than expected." He sighed as he picked the Pokémon up and placed it on the bed next to him. "I don't know how coordinators make it look so easy."
"Practice." May said as she stepped out of the bathroom, dressed in a sleeveless, red blouse that exposed her midriff. Thick green gloves sat loosely on her hands while her white skirt sat over a pair of red shorts "But considering that was just your second contest, and your first serious one you did remarkably well." She complimented her boyfriend as she tied her red bandana around her head.
Ash smiled and pecked May's cheek as he grabbed his change of clothes and stepped into the bathroom.
May clipped her bag around her waist She sighed and pulled her ribbon case out of her pack and opened it. "Still only two ribbons. I didn't expect that Ursula girl to be that good. Or for Dawn to pull off that lucky combo." May said as she stared at the bathroom door. Luck hadn't been on either of their sides recently. She pulled the ribbons resting place out of the case and looked at the badge underneath. "I hope Blaziken's training is going well." She mused.
"I'm sure he's doing fine." Ash said as he stepped out in a white shirt with a blue vest over it. A new pair of jeans and a new black and red hat with an upside down blue pokéball on it finished the look "Sure was nice of our moms to send us some new clothes."
"Yeah." May agreed as she stretched. "I'm happy to have my old bandanna back too. Nothing can beat the way it feels." She said a she stepped over and gave Ash a hug. "Except your embrace."
Ash stroked Mays hair with one hand. "We should have become a couple years ago. I don't know why Max had me worried."
Mays pokédex started to ring. She glanced at who the call was from and groaned. "Speak of the little shit."
Ash laughed nervously. "I guess he really doesn't like the fact that we're a couple."
May groaned again as she hit the accept call button. "What do you want Max?"
Ash smiled as he sat down on the bed. In some ways he thought of Max like a little brother.
The Pokémon next to him yawned and opened its eyes. "Lu?" It asked.
Ash looked at it and smiled. "Hey Riolu. Have a good nap?"
"Riolu." The fighting type smiled before it yawned again.
Ash pulled its pokéball out of his pack. "Here. You still need a good rest." He said as he returned it. "After the battle today, you earned it."
A red beam shot from the button and hit the small, dog like Pokémon, converting it back into energy for quick storage.
"Good girl." Ash said as he tapped the button which shrank the pokéball to half its size before he slotted it into its holster.
"Max you've been acting like a little shit ever since dad made it back to Petalburg." May half yelled into her pokédex. "Give me one good reason why Ash and I shouldn't be a couple."
Ash pulled his badge case out and looked inside, the three badges he earned. "Coal, Forest and Cobble." He said aloud as he remembered his battle against Maylene's Lucario. "I hope Pidgeot's wing is okay." He frowned.
May hung up on Max with a huff. "Little Bastard."
Ash smiled nervously, Max's phone calls had been getting more and more frequent. "Come on May he's your little brother. I'm sure he's just looking out for you."
May huffed again. "He's ten and I'm fourteen. I wish he'd butt out of my affairs sometimes."
Ash gave May a hug and kissed her forehead. "It's natural for kids his age to be like that. He doesn't like the fact you're still travelling with me and he's travelling alone. He's jealous that you have company."
May sighed. "I guess you're right."
Ash pulled up Max's data on his pokénav. "Max Maple?" Ash said quizzically. "Badges obtained: four. Leaders defeated: Roxanne, Brawly, Wattson, Flannery. No team data. Here we are: travelling companions" Ash read aloud as he went through the folders. "He's travelling with Roxanne and Liza."
"So there goes your theory." May smiled. "Dad's going to put Max in his place. Excuse me I need to make a phone call. I'll meet you at the restaurant okay?"
"Sure." Ash nodded as he woke Raichu. "Come on buddy. Time to get some food."
"Rai rai!" The electric type nodded before he jumped to Ash's shoulder.
Ash left the room as May finished dialing. "Hey dad. It's May. Listen, about Max…"
"Well well well if it isn't May's boytoy." The purple haired man chuckled as Ash stepped out of the elevator.
"The androgynous wonder, Harley."Ash shot back. "What do you want?"
"Snarky. I like that. Drew and I were wondering if you knew where May was, y'know. Considering you two are a couple." Harley smiled.
Ash spotted Drew in a corner, his signature rose in hand. "Like I'd tell you two anything. Get lost."
"Rai!" Raichu growled, baring his fangs at the man in green.
"Ooo! Vicious and protective. Well I've got news for you." Harley said as he grabbed Ash. "You and May are in A-block for the Wallace cup right? Well Drew and I are in B-block. And as it turns out, I'm your opponent tomorrow. And Drew over there will be princess's opponent. So toodles." Harley smiled as he let go of Ash and ran off.
Ash sighed as Drew walked past him. "Just fucking brilliant."
May came down as the front door closed. "Ash? I thought you'd be at the restaurant by now."
"I decided to wait here instead." Ash lied as May walked up next to him.
"Aww. Aren't you sweet?" May cooed before she gave him a quick kiss on the lips.
"Shall we?" Ash asked.
"We shall." May smiled.
"Raichu!" Raichu pumped his fist.
"Pika!" Pikachu pumped hers.
The couple walked in the front door of the Seven star restaurant.
"Reservation for two, Takatou, Ketchum." May told the receptionist.
"Right this way please." The receptionist told the two trainers as he lead them to a large set of double doors.
A young boy, in his early teens, burst through the door. "I'll be eating here soon!"
"Oh dear. He lost." The receptionist said.
"Huh?" Ash asked.
"In order to eat here we must first have a double battle against the restaurants owners." May told the confused boy. "If we win we eat free. If we lose we have to pay."
Ash smiled. "My kinda restaurant."
"Seeing as how you've done your research madam, best of luck to you both." The receptionist said before he bowed and walked back to the front door.
Ash pushed one side of the door open. "After you."
"Why thank you." May smiled as she stepped through.
Ash stepped through and saw the owners standing on the other side of a battle field.
"Ahh. Ash Ketchum and May Takatou. An honor to have such a famous pair dining in our restaurant." The male said, bowing.
"Indeed. But we won't go easy on you. My name is Kylie and this is my fiancé Roman." Kylie said as she curtsied.
Roman had dark blue hair and wore a white suit with matching trousers and Black dress shoes.
Kylie wore a white dress with a pink trim with matching white heels and hat, her aqua hair rested in the middle of her back.
"Double double May?" Ash asked.
"Double double." May nodded.
Ash smiled. "Alright then, we'll make this a little more interesting. What would you say to having a double-double match?"
"A double-double match? What on earth is a double-double match?" Roman asked.
"A double-double is when all four trainers battle with two Pokémon each." May explained.
Roman and Kylie looked at each other and nodded.
"Sounds fun." Kylie smiled.
"We accept." Roman nodded. "After you."
"Okay then." May smiled. "Delcatty! Pikachu! The stage is yours!"
Delcatty said nothing as she appeared and sat down on the field
"Pika!" Pikachu nodded as she jumped from May's shoulder.
"Alright then." Ash nodded. "Raichu! Crawdaunt! You're up!"
"Rai rai." Raichu smiled as he flipped off Ash's shoulder
"Daunt! Crawdaunt." Crawdaunt cheered as he bounced up and down.
Ash sighed. "He evolved but he didn't mature." He said as he looked at May's Delcatty. "At least she matured."
"Double electric? A good couple must have matching Pokémon I suppose." Roman nodded thoughtfully "This will be a fun battle."
"Indeed it will dear." Kylie agreed as she readied two pokéballs. "Munchy! Drifty! Would be so kind as to lend me a hand?"
"Lax!" The small, blue bear Pokémon nodded as it appeared.
"Loon." The purple Pokémon sighed as it hung in the air.
"What's that?" Ash asked as he scanned the purple Pokémon with Dextina.
"Drifloon. The Balloon Pokémon. Drifloon is full of air and will expand or contract to show emotion. Old folktales warn children not to grab the string on the underside of a Drifloon or else they will go missing."
"You are a genius my love." Roman told Kylie. "Snorlax! Girafarig! I require your assistance."
"Snore." The big, black bear Pokémon yawned.
"Rig?" The yellow and black equestrian Pokémon asked.
