Seventeen legendary guardians

possessing powers far beyond comprehension

will soon arise and protect the world from a deadly force...

It was already 7 years since Ash Ketchum started his Pokemon journey. Now that he had grown up, he had usually stayed in Pallet Town with some of his best friends Misty, Brock , Tracey, and of course, Pikachu.. Even though he was crowned a Pokemon master years ago, he regularly trained his Pokemon now and then. His team of Pokemon had grown since he had first started out at the age of 10. His travels had taken him to places like Kanto, Johto, and Hoenn, not to mention a couple more places. A lot happened in Pallet Town as well. A man claiming to be Ash's twin, Dash, arrived into the scene a year ago. Additionally, Ash's mom gave birth to a new young girl, Chibi. Ash then spoke to the camera, "Yeah, there are probably a bunch of plotholes and questions by now, but just wait it out, I swear." He winked.

"I won!" Ash had just finished a battle against former gym leader Brock and won. Misty looked out of Ash's kitchen window and sighed, "There he goes again, bragging about his victories." To everyone's surprise, Misty had started dating Ash. Ash's mom, Delia, looked out the window, "Ahh, my little boy is growing up." Misty sweatdropped, "He's only 16." Ash's mom interrupted, "17 today! I better prepare celebrations for the big day!" Misty sighed, "It's only 17 years old. Besides, he doesn't need to grow up anymore. He's fine the way he is now."


Professor knocked on Ash's door. Misty saw him and said, "Oh, it's just you, Professor. Why should I open the door for you?" Professor Oak started yelling, "Don't give me that sass, young lady! Now open the door!" Misty sighed and opened the door. "Hmph! I'm getting too old to handle theses kids." Misty just smirked.

"Hey, Professor Oak, I thought you died!" greeted Ash. Professor Oak responded, "Well, actually, Tracey had this gun at the... but I digress. I just came to tell you that Gary just left on another Pokemon journey." Ash whined, "Again? I thought he quit the training business." Professor Oak said, "Yeah, he decided that researching Pokemon was boring a while ago while he worked with me, but anyway..." He then sighed, "What is it that made these children hate me anyway? Well, that's all I had to tell you, Ash. Don't worry, after seeing your battle skills, I doubt Gary can compare. Who knows though." He cackled his way back to the lab.

Chibi then came into the kitchen. She asked Ash, "When do I get to have Pokemon?" Ash replied, "When you turn 10." Chibi counted, "So, since I'm 7, that makes what, 3 years?" Ash sweatdropped, "Wow, you're pretty gifted at a young age."

Back at the lab, Professor Oak had made a discovery. "Quick, Tracey! Come here!" Tracey came and gasped, "That looks like trouble coming." Professor Oak got worried, "We'd better call Ash and the others." A voice was heard, "I don't think we'll be doing that!" "Who are you?!" cried Professor Oak. He was tied up and stashed in a corner of the room. "Hey, don't take that!" He yelled as the mysterious figure ran away leaving behind Pokemon.

Tracey secretly got away and ran to Ash's house. He rang the bell. "Ash! I need he... Hey, do I smell cake?" Delia smiled, "You sure do, Tracey!" Tracey chewed some pieces and said, "Mmmm, that's good!" Meanwhile, Professor Oak yelled, "Damn you Tracey! You could have at least untied me first!"

Ash interrupted, "So, what did you want to tell me?" Tracey said, "Oh yeah. Some guy tied up Professor Oak and stole something from him." Misty yelled from another room, "About time!" Ash went with Tracey to the lab. "I better go see what this is about." They ran to Professor Oak's lab. There were all these dark Pokemon inside. Ash sighed, "It's pretty clever to use dark-type Pokemon in the dark." Inside were a Sneasel, a Murkrow, and Houndour. Ash yelled, "Pikachu! Thunder attack!" The dark Pokemon moved fast and attacked Ash and Pikachu with rays.

Ash asked, "What are those attacks?" Ash was on the move trying to dodge the rays. Pikachu used Quick Attack and tried to use another Thunder attack on the dark Pokemon. Pikachu yelled, "Pikachu!" The dark Pokemon were shocked and ran off. "Wait!" yelled Ash as the mysterious figure saw the Pokemon running and tried to run as well. Ash yelled, "Who are you?" The voice said, "If I told you, it wouldn't be much of a surprise, would it?" Ash closed his eyes and yelled, "Wait!" Suddenly, the figure was enclosed in a blue flame. Ash gasped, "What's going on?" The flame then disappeared as the figure ran away.

As the figure ran away, Tracey untied Professor Oak. He yelled, "What took you so long, you idiot!" Professor Oak then coughed and said, "Please call the others. I have an interesting discovery." Everyone else came as Professor Oak gave his announcement.

"The world is going to end." Silence filled the room. Following it was utter chaos. "WE'RE GONNA DIE?!" Professor Oak started explaining, "Well, we need the Pokemons' power to stop the world from ending." Ash asked, "But why is the world ending?"

Professor Oak laughed, "Oh, let me explain." Brock sweatdropped, "You're awfully jolly." Oak continued, "Well, you see, I had a Mystical Amulet, which was stolen by this group called the Evil Guardians. The guardians can use the pendant, I mean amulet, to fulfill their wishes. Since they're evil, which I can assume from their name, they will use to create chaos in the world. But you see, the pendant can only be activated by catching all 386+ Pokemon, and I put emphasis on the plus." He coughed and hacked.

"As I was saying, they will need to catch every Pokemon with their Evil Guardian power. However, this threat can be countered by awakening the true Guardians of Pokemon. There are 17 of them in all. These legendary Guardians each have special powers, each related to the 17 different types of Pokemon: Grass, Water, Electric, Flying, Bug, Dragon, Ghost, Fire, Normal, Fighting, Rock, Dark, Steel, Poison, Ice, Ground, and Psychic. The Guardians do just what the name says, guard the Pokemon." Ash asked, "Exactly what do the Guardians have to do?" Professor Oak answered, "Good question. Their sole duty is to catch each and every Pokemon to activate the Mystical Amulet."

Ash nudged Brock, who was asleep. Brock said, "Oh, uhhh... do we really have to catch all 151 Pokemon... I mean, 251... I mean..." Professor Oak said, "Let's just leave it at 386+. Also, only the Pokemon who matches the Guardians type may catch the Pokemon. Now follow me and I'll show you where the Pokemon go." Professor Oak introduced the contraption, "This machine is where the Pokemon go. They are divided to the types. If the Pokemon is dual-type, the Pokemon will be put in either of the type homes." Oak then asked, "Anyone confused." Everyone raised their hand. He sweatdropped as he repeated himself over again.

Misty sighed, "So, now we have to find these Guardian guys to save the world?" Oak said, "Oh yeah, one more thing. I have a little mascot... I mean helper to assist you on your missions. Teleport here, Jupei!" A little orange-brown creature appeared at the transporter. He asked, "Who woke me up?!" Professor Oak whispered something to him, "Jupei, the time has come." "Aw, crap. Well, let's see our little group."

Professor Oak said, "Well, actually these kids are looking for the Guardians of Pokemon. Wait a minute!" He harkened back to a few hours ago when he Ash helped to defeat the dark Pokemon. Oak turned to Ash, "I bet you're a Guardian of Pokemon, Ash." Ash gasped, "Me? You really think so?" Oak said, "I saw how you fought earlier. Those looked like telekinetic powers you used."

Jupei said, "Well, if you think this amateur is a Guardian, then we should test it out. Ash, shout Psychic Power!" Ash said, "Ok." and took a deep breat, "Psychic Power!" He started to glow and transformed. He was wearing special purple clothing with psychic eye marks on it. "Well what do you know? You're the Psychic Guardian!" Ash smiled. "We found 1 Guardian." Jupei sighed, "A pretty useless one if you ask me?" Ash stretched Jupei's face as Oak yelled, "Jupei! Grow up and cooperate!"

"Another adventure for us!" said Ash as he, Jupei, Misty, Brock, Dash, (whoever he is) and Tracey left. "Can I come?" asked Chibi. Delia said, "Access denied!" Suddenly, Delia exclaimed, "Be back by 8!" Ash sighed, "But..." Delia winked, "Remember it's your and Dash's birthday!" Dash said, "Oh yeah. It is my birthday." Ash looked at Dash for a second and finally said, "Come on, let's go!" They jumped into the air.

The group walked along Route 1. Ash sighed, "How come ther eare no Pokemon here?!" "Calm down, " said Dash. Suddenly, a small figure appeared and disappeared in a flash of light. He appeared again somewhere else. "Wait, isn't that an Abra?" Ash looked, "You're right! Pokeball..." Jupei sighed, "Wait, you're not supposed to use regular Pokeball!" Ash asked, "What?" Suddenly, Abra attacked them with a Psychic attack.

"Ow!" Ash and Jupei screamed. "Run!" Ash ran. Abra then attacked the others with Confusion. "No! Misty! That's it!" Jupei screamed, "Hurry and transform!" Ash nodded, "Right! Psychic Power!" He transformed into the Psychic Guardian. Jupei screamed, "Attack them!" Ash sweatdropped, "Oops, I fogot to ask Professor Oak how to use my powers." Everyone facefaulted.

Brock said, "Wait, we have an expert here!" Jupei asked, "Who? Wait, me!" Ash asked, "What are my attacks, Jupei?" Jupei said, "Well... you're supposed to learn them as you go along." Ash facefaulted. "Watch out!" yelled Misty as Abra started shooting Psybeams. Pikachu took matters into its own hands and shocked Abra. Ash cheered, "Good job, Pikachu!" Abra recovered itself. "Damn!"

Abra continued using Psybeams randomly. One of the Psybeams hit Misty. Ash screamed, "Stop!" He started chasing Abra. He teleported in front of Abra, "Stop this, Abra!" Ash tried to catch Abra with his hands, but it teleported away. Tracey suggested, "We should all try to catch it together." Ash said, "You're right!"

They all tried to grab Abra together. Abra tried to teleport around, but the 5 hands had it pinned to the ground. Finally, Ash yelled, "That's it! Psychic Blast!" A powerful psychic beam came out of Ash's hands. "How did I do that?!" Jupei said, "It's one of your powers... Guardian!" Ash smiled, "Awesome!" Misty cheered, "Way to go, Ash!" Abra was hit with the Psychic Blast.

Jupei shouted, "Here's your chance. Say 'Psychic Ball'!" Ash yelled, "Psychic Ball!" and a ball came out of nowhere and caught Abra. Ash cheered, "I won!" Everyone cheered. Jupei said, "But this is only the beginning!" Dash looked at his watch, "Hey, it's almost 8." Ash said, "Let's go home and celebrate my first victory as a Guardian of Pokemon!"

Jupei stayed behind smiling and thought to himself, "Ah, something tells me that this kid will make a great Guardian!" "Come on, Jupei!" shouted Ash. "Coming!" said Jupei as he flew to them.

Author's notes: Well, thanks for reading the first in a series of installments of the great world of Guardians of Pokemon. Seriously, there are so many episodes that I wrote for this series. Not all episodes are of this length however. You can call this an hour long special.

This is an actual fanfic that I started a few years ago. I revised the first couple of episodes to reflect the current episodes on TV. However, it is likely that this will soon become outdated as the show goes on. Think of this as an alternate universe where the characters are older and the Pokemon they have reflect what they had when I wrote this.

Also, remember that most of the series is just one giant cliche. If you didn't already recognize the sentai genre parodied used in this episode, then you may not get every single anime cliche that I stuck into this series.

Haha, and concerning Dash and Chibi, they were characters from an old fic of mine. Perhaps, I will reveal all in time. *winks*

So please, read and review this series. I hope you enjoy the adventures!
