Small problem, Big surprises, and Bigger Chaos
"I cannot believe this is happening to me!" A child with a large red baseball cap groaned. "This is your fault! Go ahead Ash! It sounds fun! Humph, fun my behind! Look at me now!" He mocked irritably.
"Well mister carefree…you could've refused, but nooooo, you went ahead with it anyway!" A young girl with a red bandanna retorted. She wore a red button up T-shirt with a blue top and white bottom, a pair of blue and white gloves, red, yellow and blue sneakers with a white strap, and dark blue biker shorts. A tanned teenager with black hair and apparently no eyes separated the two by standing in between them.
"Ok guys', arguing is not going to help us in anyway, so let's just settle down and figure a way out of this…small Predicament." The brown haired Pokemon breeder intervened, sniggering noticeably.
"He's right. If we calm down, we can figure it out." A black haired boy with glasses joined.
"What do you mean calm down Brock? Look at me! I am deformed!" Ash cried out in despair.
"When you think about it, it's kind of funny how everything happened." The girl mused, giggling from the memory.
"I agree." Brock agreed.
"I still don't see what is so funny!" Ash fumed.
Flashback to 45 minutes ago
The four kids began heading towards Mauville City in order for Ash to win his third gym badge and meet an old friend of his along the way. But as luck would have it, they were being pounded upon by heavy rainfall.
"Awww come on! Why did it have to rain now?" Ash whined.
"Let's hurry up before be get soaked." Brock rushed.
The gang started running. After a few minutes they managed to find something that looked like a large store. It had an arch, red tile roof and the building had brown coating on the side. On the front, it had a red sign that read "Magician's getaway".
"Hey you guy's, let's rest here until it stops raining!" Ash beamed.
The gang went inside the magic shop and stopped, awestruck. The inside of the magic store was very elaborate, half like a library, half like an antique shop. The store was wall-to-wall with books on different spells and incantations.
"Hey, this place looks pretty cool." He said excitedly.
"More like creepy." The brown haired girl squeaked timidly, a little freaked out by the "interesting" items.
"Come on May, this place isn't so bad. What's the worst that can happen?" He patted on May's back reassuringly.
The group began to explore the store taking in the sight. They went throughout the shop for about a half an hour until May and Brock made a very intriguing discovery.
"Hey you guys come and take a look at this." May called, alerting the other two members of the group. She flashed a clear flask with pink liquid inside. Ash held the flask up to the light and inspected it.
"What on earth is this thing?" He asked.
"This is a special love potion that works only for guys." Brock answered.
"Then, how come you didn't try it."
Brock huddled in a dark corner as he kept chanting "I don't want to talk about it."
Everyone sweatdropped upon sight of the depressed breeder. May decided to fill in for him. "Basically, the only guy's who can use it is the ones who are pure of heart, and have very little sense in the field of romance." That's when May got an idea. "Hey Ash, it sounds pretty fun. Why don't you try it?"
"I don't know…I don't think that stuff works anyway." Ash hesitated. "Besides, we don't have that kind of money to spend on this stuff."
May jerked her thumb at Brock in annoyance. "Well, Thanks to Action Man over here, he bought it before knowing what the conditions were." Everyone fell over comically. "If you look on the bright side, it wasn't that expensive and it is safe, so what is there to lose?"
"Well, I don't know…"
"Oh come on. It is like you said, what is the worst that can happen? Right Ash?" The little boy with glasses pressured
"Max is right Ash. It's not like anything bad will happen, and if it does work, it could be fun." May pressed further.
"Well…okay!" Ash perked. He swallowed its contents whole.
"…Uh, nothing is happening guys, I guess this doesn't-ACK" Ash gasped as his body was engulfed in a large puff of smoke that emanated from his body. Everyone gasped as he reappeared out of the smoke. Ash opened his eyes only to feel a 'little' different. He also noticed that everything seemed a bit bigger then usual and he felt very odd in his head, but he couldn't put his finger on it exactly. It was especially hard to concentrate when everyone was gawking, giggling and sweat dropping.
"Hey, how did everything get so big, and why are you guys staring at me like that?" Ash asked, and then noticed something seriously wrong. "Hey, what is going on with my voice? I sound like a little kid." Brock pointed to a body length mirror. Ash nearly fainted at what he saw. He was only about 2 1/2 feet tall and his clothes shrunk a little bit, but not enough so he looked like he had very baggy clothes that looked way too big for his age. He looked like a 5 year old with big, sparkly eyes and his head was only a tiny bit bigger.
"WHAT HAPPENED TO ME, WHAT ON EARTH IS GOING ON?" Ash shrieked while flailing his arms in frustration.
"Oh my goodness! You look so…CUTE!" May squealed. She pulled Ash in a hug that could kill an Ursaring.
"May…you…are…killing me!" he choked while struggling to breathe.
"Oops, sorry Ash." She dropped the Chibi Ash, blushing from embarrassment. "I don't know what came over me. But you are just about the cutest thing I ever seen." She cooed.
"Well, at least we know that it works." Max said with a straight face.

"Let's check the bottle for instruction, maybe then we can find the solution to cure Ash of his little problem." Brock suggested.
"Wow, the print is so tiny I can barely read it." Max commented.
"Well, I guess good things do come in small sizes." May joined, causing all three to laugh.
"Quit making fun of me already!" Ash yelled. He tried to sound serious, but that was a hard task due to his high pitched voice.
All of the laughing ceased and they read the bottle only to find more bad news.
"Ash, we have good news, and bad news." Brock told him with a worry tone.
"What's the good news?"
"You can change back to normal."
"Ok, what is the bad news?"
"Well…It is kind of hard to explain." Brock started, but got interrupted by Max.
"Well you see Ash; not only has your body changed, but your mind too. Your personality has been altered and is in the state of a five year old. Some of the attributes of your personality is still the same, the problem is that the one which was increased was one of your negative attributes, usually the one that occurs the most. But in order to change back, you need increase one of your positive attributes of your personality, thus reversing the entire spell so your body reverts back to normal." He explained smartly.
Everyone gaped at him as though a third eye popped out of his forehead. Brock faked a cough to get everyone's attention.
"To put it into a language that we humans can understand, you need to become a better person in some sort of way in order to get back to normal." Brock translated, earning a glare from the youngest member of the group. "First, we should find out what bad part of you has been increased."
"I can help with that." May jumped in. "Well to start, mister Pokemon master here can be arrogant, stubborn, sloppy, and dense for sure, reckless, ignorant…" she stopped as she saw Ash looking around as if he was looking for someone.
"There's someone here named Pokemon master? Where is he?" Ash asked seriously. "I thought we were supposed to talk about my faults?"
Everyone facefaulted, wondering how on earth he could be so dense.
"Ash you have got to be the densest…person…I…ever…uh oh…" May wasn't able to finish her sentence. Her eyes widened in sheer horror.
"We have a real problem in our hands." Brock stated in despair
"This looks bad guys." Max said worriedly.
"That is what I have been trying to tell you guys! Let's figure a way to solve this and get it over with already!" Ash yelled in annoyance.
Everyone fell over in surprise. Shocked by his sudden increase in his density.
'If we thought that he was dense before…' May thought.
'And he got even worse with his denseness…' Brock thought as well.
'Then he is doomed for sure.' Max thought also.
'I wonder where this Pokemon master guy is' Ash thought still looking for him while everyone behind him sweatdropped.
Thanks for reading and review if you haven't yet already. Also note that I will not continue this fic UNTIL I am done with the revisions (I swear I nearly died afterseeing all of those horrible errors!).
