Ash(16) and may (14.5) have been on the road the for 12 weeks ago because in my version they had to go thougt petalburg forest and a cave to got to petalburg ash, who won the Johto league, he has Pikachu, Charizard (who stayed who stayed with him after the league), Bayleef, Tauros, Quilava (evloved in the against Jackson as did Bulbasaur into Ivysaur), Wartortle (evolved in the match agaisgt Mancy ). May, who will be a real trainer and acts like it in this fic, she chose Torchic, birch he gave her Mudkip (because he wanted to go with her) Skitty (she caught on the road), Ralts (she caught on the road), Electrike (she caught outside littlefoot), and Silcoon (she caught also out little root as wurmple and evolved ), they are all at level 18-20, while ash are in the 70-75. Ash had caught five hoenn pokemon Treecko, (like he caught him in the show) Taillow (like he caught him in the show ), Corphish (caught from a lake they past) torkoal (caught in cave), and trapinch (caught while trying to dig up a garden) they are at level 20- 21, because they were ali ttle too powerful for may

Norman yelled "hyper hyper now" explound formed and fired a beam at ash's Tauros but at the last minute yelled a command but norman did not hear it expect the beam had hit something creating a dust cloud, when it clear that tauros was not hit. Tauros was running like a bat out of hell and hit exploud with a Take down which take exploud out of the match 'exp" it moaned softly

norman and his family looked shocked, ash smirked "you should always pay attaction to the other trainer if you had you would of heard me tell to dodge the beam and use a combo of Take Down and Quick Attack, may remember that, i leraned that they hard way, Tauros return" ash returned Tauros,

norman who saw ash's charizard on the tube chose his most powerful pokemon "i choose Slaking" the money pokmon appeared with yawn "saaaakkking"while ash, pikachu, was in may's arm's, and charizard at the lazy pokemon, but ash don't think to underimuse it that had come back and bite him in the ass more than once.

"Charizard, fly up into the air and use fire spin" charizard nodded and breathed out a power ful torondo of flame at the slaking and it didn't dodged with the fire spin died down slaking was just charred. And only a little. Ash looked at slaking as norman smiled,

norman yelled "slaking hyper beam" slaking looked at charizard in the air and fired a hyper beam at him charizard barely dodged "charizard dragon rage full power didn't hold back this time" norman looked shock 'hold back he was holding back'. Charizard created a giant orb of dragon fire and fired at slaking who took the hit as it was overwhlemed by the blast, it lighed up the whole place,after the attack faded there ws a barbunced slaking with swirly eyes "kiingggg" it said. "slaking return"

Charizard smirked "ZZAAAARRR" it roared in victory

"great job charizard that was impressive return" ash praized his old friend as he recalled him

norman was surpirseed at ash's pokemon's power "well um lets conuite lets have the this battle with our final round as a double battle"

Snorlax was engulfed in flames, when the flames died down, a char boil snorlax. The match was over Bayleef and Quilaca were stand proud as norman recalled his beaten pokemon.

may walked to ash "way to go ash you beat my father like he was a rookie ahh no offoense dad" norman seemed a bit mad that his daughter was happy that he lost but was happy to have battled a champion.

Ash then relaized some thing he came to hoenn to test his skill, but he had his already well trained pokemon with him while he had five untrained hoenn pokemon at oak so he made a decision, he would only use hoenn pokemon here in the gyms and only use his other super powerful pokeomon when he compented in the hoenn league
