The Ones You Trust - Part 1

Ash always had a close friendship with his Pokémon. He trusted them with everything, even his life. And he was pretty sure they felt the same about him.

"Come on guys, Brock can't make dinner without firewood" Ash called to his Pokémon, who had all gone with him to collect firewood.

Pikachu trotted up to him with a bunch of sticks in his arms. "Pika!" He cried happily.

Bayleef walked up carrying some firewood in her vines along with Bulbasaur. Cydaquil walked over with some in his arms and Noctowl with some in his claws. Totodile danced over to him wih a few sticks that were a little soggy.

"Totodile, were you water gunning the firewood again?" Ash asked. Totodile lowered it's head. Ash laughed and shook his head "They're not going to light you know. Nevermind, lets get back, I'm getting hungry" He smiled and began to head back to the lake were they were staying. He heard his Pokémon following.

When they reached the campsite, they set the sticks down in a pile and Cyndaquil set them ablaze. Ash sat down by the lake and Pikachu sat beside him.

Pikachu grinned and gave him a playful thundershock.

Ash jumped and looked at Pikachu. He grinned and ruffled his fur. "Someday your gonna try to shock me and it's not gonna work"

Pikachu giggled and shook himself. He liked giving Ash little shocks once in a while, just to see him react.

Soon Brock called them all to dinner and they sat down and ate their stew. After that, Ash and his Pokémon had a few races and then everyone decided to go to sleep.

-----------

Late in the night, Ash was awoken by a sudden jolt of pain. He jumped and sat up. Cyndaquil stood at the entrance to the tent, flames burning on it's back. "Cyndaquil, whats going on? Why aren't you outside with the others?"

Cyndaquil reared up and jerked it's head forward as it realeased an ember.

Ash threw his arms in front of his face without thinking and the flames hit his arms. He winced as he felt the ember scorch him. He looked over at Cyndaquil, who turned and ran off. "Cydaquil?"

-----------

The next morning Ash walked out and saw Cyndaquil was sleeping peacefully next to Totodile and Bulbasaur. Why had Cyndaquil attacked him? What did he do wrong?

Well whatever he had done, Ash no longer felt comfortable around Cyndaquil, so for the rest of the day he tried to stay away from the little fire Pokémon.

Misty and Brock had noticed this and got a little curious, but they decided not to butt in. Just before everyone was settling down to go to sleep, Ash saw Cyndaquil talking to Totodile, Bulbasaur and Noctowl. He shrugged it off and went into his tent.

-----------

That night Ash was awoken yet again by Cyndaquils flamethrower, but this time it was also accompanied by other attacks.

Ash jumped up and noticed that Bulbasaur had used Sleep Powder of Pikachu to kepp him asleep and now was using razor leaf on Ash, long with Noctowl using Confusion and Totodile using Bite.

-----------

Ash speant most of the next day with Pikachu and Bayleef. He thought of asking them if they knew why Bulbasaur, Totodile, Noctowl and Cyndaquil were attacking him, but he really didn't feel like talking about it.

Well at least he had Bayleef and Pikachu.

-----------

Or so he thought.

The next night Ash couldn't sleep, so he and Pikachu decided to go for a walk around the forest near the camp.

After a few minutes Ash heard a rustling and turned to see Pikachu running out of a bush. "Were'd you run off to? I thought you were right behind me"

Pikachu didn't reply. He just grinned at Ash, but it wasn't in a friendly way. There was something different about him.

"Pikachu?" Ash was confused now.

The bushes behind Pikachu ructled a little more and Cyndquil, Totodile, Bayleef, Noctowl and Bulbasaur came out.

"Hey, what's going on you guys?" Ash took a step back when the Pokémon grinned at eachother.

Pikachu nodded to the rest and his cheeks sparked.

Everything next happened so fast. He felt himself getting Thunderbolted, Razor Leafed, Flamethrowered, Water Guned and not to forget the pain he felt from Noctowl Confucion. After that it all went black.

-----------

Ash opened his eyes and found that he was back in his tent. "It was all a dream?" Ash whispered to himself and sat up.

He was wrong. He felt a sharpe pain in his arm and looked down to see cuts, bruises and burn marks.

He couldn't believe it. His own Pokémon had down this to him. If he couldn't trust his own Pokémon, who's Pokémon could he trust.

At that moment Misty looked into the tent. "Ash, thank God your awake" She crawled in. "What the heck happened to you out there, Pikachu came back to camp and was going mental saying something happened to you"

"It was Pikachu, and the others" Ash said.

Misty gave him a confused look. "What?"

"Pikachu and the others did this to me.I know it may sound crazy but it's true" Ash said.

Misty shook her head. "Ash, your halusanating. Pikachu would never do that to you"

Ash sighed and looked to the side. He wished he could believe her but he had seen Pikachu and the others fire their attacks.

-----------

The next day Ash was the last to wake up. When he came out, Pikachu, Misty, Brock and the other Pokémon were having breakfast.

Pikachu's ears twitched and he looked back. He smiled when he saw Ash and ran over to greet him. He stopped in front of him and smiled.

Ash looked down at Pikachu and felt a little worried, so he stepped away.

"Pikapi?" Pikachu took a step towards him.

Ash took a few more steps back. "S-Stay away Pikachu, I'm warning you"

"Ash, what's wrong?" Misty walked over. Bayleef, Totodile, Bulbasaur, Noctowl and Cyndaquil stood beside her.

"K-Keep them away" Ash said, sounding terrified.

"Keep who away?" Misty asked.

"The Pokémon!" Ash yelled. "I don't want them near me. I hate Pokémon!"

Pikachu lowered his ears sadly.

Ash turned and stormed back to his tent, closing it up to seal himself off from the rest of the group.

"Ash hates Pokémon?" Misty said. Even when she said it, it sounded wrong. Ash had always loved Pokémon.

-----------

In the forect around the camp, three pairs of eyes belonging to Jessie, James and Meowth watched 'the twerp' storm away and grinned. "Looks like the twerp has a phobia" Jessie said.

"Ya, of Pokémon" James added.
