It was great and nice weather in Pallet Town of Kanto Region. At the home of Ketchum's lives, Ash's mother, Delia Ketchum, was doing her garden while Mimey, nickname for Mr. Mime, was sweeping the floor with the broom.

For the past few months or so, She was very proud of her son that Ash has finally complete all seven Battle Frontier that she told by Professor Oak. She also learn that Ash will be back home with Brock and Misty who came with them after three sisters have return from their vacation but three of them are been punished by Misty's eldest sisters.

However, when Misty called from Cerulean City that after she been doing great job as a gym leader but she really want to go on more journeys with her secret crush Ash, Pikachu and Brock until her fifth and eldest sister named Meranda came back from her journey and give her permission to go with Ash and Brock. Delia knew that Misty likes or rather fall in love with her son from the beginning and always thinks Misty as part of the family.

As speaking of family, Mrs. Ketchum smiled in sadly as she took out a picture from her apron pocket and looking at picture of her son as little boy and he's holding a baby girl who's sleeping in the picture that has blond hair with two tiny buns.

Delia sighed. "How the time flies." Then looking up at the clear blue sky and thinking in her mind. "I wonder how she doing right know?"

Meanwhile at near the exit of Viridian Forest, a mystery trainer who's happens to be female and her pokemon Houndour walking throughout the Viridian City that's leads them out of the city and both of them were heading to Route 1 that's leading the road to Pallet Town.

Houndour's trainer decide to rest on big rock while her pokemon went for drink on the river stream.

"Let's take a break, Knight. After a long walk from our journey, we might get our legs blister." She said as she sit down on the big rock.

"Bark!" Houndour bark in agreed with it's trainer and walking to her and laid down on cool, clean grass while she took out her map book from her backpack.

"Hmm…according to the map, we getting closer to Pallet Town in 1 or 2 hours." She said and put her map book away then took out something else and looking a photo with smile on her face. "It's been years since my cousin and his family came to visit at my hometown."

Houndour was curious at it's trainer as it looking at the picture she holding. As it looking at the picture that show three people: Two adult, little black hair boy, and it's trainer as sweet little girl.

"This is my relatives, boy." She said as she revealing her pokemon Knight is male. "The adult male is my uncle, the female adult is my aunt, and the boy is cousin name Ash Ketchum. These three are living from Pallet Town where we staying."

"Bark." Knight understood.

"You and rest of my pokemon are going to love there. Pallet Town is great and quiet place to visit." She said as she got up from the rock. "So are you ready to go?"

"Bark-bark!" Knight barked as a yes and then two of them start walking down the road path.

Later then, two of them have finally arrived at Pallet Town as they're continued walking down the path toward to the house of Ketchum. When they got to the front door as female trainer press the doorbell button and wait.
