"See anything Starly?" Ash called to his newly caught Pokemon. Aipom was now safely inside its Pokeball.
"Star! Starly!" Starly shook its head.
"Aw…" Ash said, depressed.
"Ash, don't worry." Brock comforted.
Suddenly, there was a lighting attack that shot up in the sky. Bird Pokemon scattered.
"Hey, what was that?" Ash yelled. "Pikachu?" He then started running as fast as he could with Brock following.
As they ran towards the cause of the attack, Ash and Brock saw a purple haired trainer who was wearing a blue jacket and had a gray bag that was slung on his back.. An Elekid was beside him, using an Electric attack on a flock of Starly.
The trainer threw a Pokeball at one of the scattering Starly. When it hit the Pokemon, there was a red beam on light, preventing it from being sucked in. The Pokeball deflected, and the trainer caught the Pokeball as Ash and Brock ran up.
"Starly! Over here!" Ash called. Starly flew over and landed on Ash's shoulder.. "Hey, you haven't seen two girls with a Pikachu around here have you?" Ash asked.
"No. Why would I have?" The trainer retorted. "Are you sure that's the best Starly?"
"What?"Ash was confused.
" I saw you catch that Starly. Are you sure the one you caught is the best one?"
"Huh? What are you talking about?"
"Watch." The trainer took out three Pokeballs and threw them in the air. Three Starly were released in succession. They landed with ease and sat in front of them. "Didn't you know you could use the PokeDex to see what moves your Pokemon used?" He took out his pitch black PokeDex and scanned each Starly.
"Starly knows the moves Tackle and Sand Attack." The PokeDex informed the two trainers and one breeder. That was repeated for the second one as well. But for the third one, it said, "Starly knows the moves Tackle Sand Attack, Quick Attack and Aerial Ace."
The trainer returned all of the Starlys to their Pokeballs. He put the third one away and looked at the remaining ones and said, "You're not needed. Get lost." He then released the two Bird Pokemon in a flash of blue light.
"Wow." Ash commented. "I've never seen any trainer treat their Pokemon the way you do. Besides, any Pokemon can become strong if they trainer trains them."
"Whatever." The trainer snorted. "Anyway, you seem strong. Let's have a three-on-three battle. That's the best way to tell what strengths and types a trainer uses."
"You're on!" Ash yelled. Then he remembered he only had two Pokemon. "Sorry." Ash looked glum. "But at the moment, I only have two Pokemon."
"What?" The trainer asked in disbelief. He then turned away from Ash. "You don't even have three Pokemon? That's pathetic. Come on, Elekid. Let's go." Elekid nodded, and they began to leave.
Before Ash could make a retort, there was another spark of electricity in the distance. Ash and Brock recognized it immediately.
"That was Pikachu's Volt Tackle!" Brock yelled.
"Pikachu!" Ash shouted. "I'm coming buddy!" Ash took off towards to the area where it came from.
"Volt Tackle?" The trainer repeated.
"Not you guys again!" Dawn yelled, angrily as Pikachu landed back in front of her. Eevee growled defiantly as it stood in front of me.
Team Rocket laughed, as they sat in a giant orange machine that had six hands with their signature 'R' on it.
"Oh yes, us!" Jessie drawled
"I told you, didn't I?" I said to Dawn.
"Yeah, but still…"
"We're here to take Pikachu!" James crowed.
"Let's go!" Meowth hit a button on the controllers it was holding. Four mechanical hands shot out and grabbed the poor Electric Mouse Pokemon.
"Piplup!" Dawn yelled. "Use BubbleBeam!"
However, the bubbles were useless against the hands. They went straight through and grabbed Pikachu.
"Pikachu!" It cried. Then it tried using a Thunderbolt. "PI!" But it didn't work.
"Yay!" Meowth cried in delight.
"We got Pikachu!" Jessie added.
"Easy!" James finished.
Piplup tried using BubbleBeam again. "Piplup!" But it was still ineffective against the giant machine.
"Hahaha! Didn't we tell you your moves were ineffective?" James asked, sneering.
"Eevee!" Eevee tried to use Tackle on the legs of the machine, but one of the hands smacked it away and it was thrown in front of me. "Eve!"
"Eevee!" I cried out. I gently picked it up. "Thanks for trying buddy, but don't worry. Pikachu will get rescued."
Piplup was now mad. It started to dash up and try to use Peck, but it received the same treatment as Eevee. Piplup was thrown back. It tried to stand up again, but couldn't. "Pip…"
"Piplup! Are you okay?" Dawn asked, panicked.
"Hahaha! You're too weak!" Meowth teased.
"Now you'll feel the payment for that!" Jessie pressed a button and four of the hands shot down at us and started attacked and swinging.
"Wah!" Dawn and Piplup dodged. I was holding Eevee, and was doing the same thing. Come on… Anytime now…
"Aipom, Swift! Starly, Gust!" A voice ordered. I perked up. There we go! The stars hit the hands and bounced them back. The Gust attack started getting Team Rocket off balance.
"Huh?" Dawn looked to see who had rescued us.
"Huh?" Team Rocket was just as surprised.
"Pikachu!" Ash yelled as he and Brock ran into view.
"Pikabee!" Pikachu used its special way of communicating with Ash.
"It's the twerp!" The Team Rocket members cried in unison.
Then Meowth smirked. "Too late! Pikachu is already ours!" Then he pressed another button on the controllers. One of the hands shot out and hit Ash hard. Dawn gasped.
"PIKA!" Pikachu angrily yelled.
"Ash!" I cried out. Then I covered my mouth. I really need to work on not blurting stuff out!
Brock looked taken aback, but then continued over to Ash.
Dawn turned to face me. "You know him?"
I quickly nodded. "I'll explain later. We'll have to tell them." Then I ran over to Ash. Brock, Aipom and Starly were already there.
"Ash!" Brock shouted.
Ash managed to get up. "I'm okay." Then he started running towards Team Rocket's machine. The hands started attacking.
"Stop! It's dangerous!" Brock warned.
"Nice! Keep that feeling of despair!" Jessie smirked.
"Alright! We'll win!" James grinned evilly.
"Time to introduce ourselves!" Meowth announced.
"Yeah!" Team Rocket was lifted onto a platform and rose up.
"Today's your lucky day!" Jessie crowed.
"You get to witness the brilliance of the new Team Rocket motto!"
"Do we have to?" Ash groaned.
"Listen, is that a voice I hear?" Jessie asked.
"It speaks to me loud and clear!" James answered.
"Floating on the wind!"
"Past the stars!"
"In your ear!" Meowth continued.
"Bringing chaos at a breakneck pace!"
"Dashing hope, putting fear in its place!"
"A rose by any other name, just as sweet!"
"When everything's worse, our works complete!"
"Meowth, now that's a name!"
"Putting the do-gooders in their place…"
"We're in your face!"
Then the machine started a victory dance. "La la la!"
"They need to shut up…" I muttered.
"Oh man!" Ash gritted his teeth and started running towards the machine.
"Well, we left them speechless again!" Meowth stated proudly.
"Yeah!" I yelled. "Speechless at how lame that was!"
"What did you say?" Jessie grew very angry.
"Calm down!" James tried. Then he pressed a button. "Encore time." The hand started attacking again. But instead of just dodging Ash jumped away and up into a tree and bounced off it, successfully landing on the machine's arm.
"AH!" Team Rocket exclaimed in shock.
"Hang on! I'm coming Pikachu!" Ash called, determined.
The other arms tried to hit Ash off, but he kept dodging.
"Uh oh! He's got that look in his eyes!" Meowth said nervously.
"Oh?" James asked, snapping out of it. "Well, look at these!" He started pressing many buttons. All of the arms started focusing on hitting Ash, but he still managed to dodge.
Dawn was still in shock, her mouth wide open, but she was also amazed at what Ash was doing.
"Pikachu!" Ash called, almost reaching his Pokemon.
"Pikabee!" Pikachu happily replied.
Then, one of the arms punched itself by accident.
"Don't worry." Ash had reached Pikachu. "You're gonna be safe soon!"
The hole started sparking.
Ash tried to pry the hand clutching Pikachu open. "Urh! Hnnnn!"
Now, the whole machine was conducting the sparks around.
"Ash!" Brock yelled, running up with Ash's other Pokemon next to Dawn and I. "Hurry! I think it's going to explode!"
Ash was still trying to get the hand open.
"I don't think we're as safe as we thought!" Meowth shouted.
"That's for sure!" Jessie confirmed.
"I think we're gonna get it!" James finished.
The machine started to leak smoke in booms.
"Get down!" Brock shouted. All of us instantly hit the ground with our hands over our heads. I was still protecting Eevee.
"Eevee…" It moaned.
Then it finally exploded. Team Rocket was thrown into the sky.
"You tell me, what kind of encore is this?" Jessie demanded.
"Yeah, weren't we supposed to leave our audience wanting more?" James agreed.
"You go tell that to the writers!" Meowth yelled.
"We're blasting off again!" They all finished, as they disappeared, leaving nothing but a sparkle.
We stood next to the remainder of the destroyed machine.
"Pikachu! Ash!" Brock called. "Where are you?"
"Pikachu?" Dawn asked, uncertain.
They scanned the pieces until one slightly moved.
"Oh!" They gasped.
Ash appeared, looking beat up, but still fine. Pikachu came up beside him.
"Pikachu!" Ash happily exclaimed. Then they started hugging each other. "You're okay!"
"Aipom!" Aipom had climbed the pieces and greeted Pikachu.
"Pika!" Pikachu replied, joyfully grabbing Aipom's hands. Starly approached, behind Aipom.
"Right, you haven't met yet. I want you to meet Starly! My very first Pokemon buddy from Sinnoh and helped me find you!"
"Pika pika!" Pikachu thanked Starly. Then Pikachu noticed Dawn and I. "Pika?"
"Pikachu! We did it!" Dawn said happily. I smiled, still holding Eevee.
Ash got up, out of the broken machine and walked over to us. "You saved my Pikachu! Thanks a lot! My name's Ash Ketchum from Pallet Town, and it's really great to meet you."
Brock came up next to us as well. "Hi, I'm Brock!"
"Hi guys!" Dawn greeted. "I'm Dawn from Twinleaf Town. And this is my partner, Piplup."
"My name's Chelsea. Nice to meet you." I grinned. I held Eevee. "This is my partner Eevee." Eevee smiled.
Ash took out his Pokedex. "So that's a Piplup?"
"Piplup. The Penguin Pokemon. It's very proud and its thick down protects it from the cold."
"I sure hope your Eevee and Piplup's okay, fighting with Team Rocket and all." Ash said, concerned.
"Thanks, but Piplup's fine. You tell them Piplup."
"You're a tough Pokemon." Ash complimented.
"Actually, do you have a Potion or anything? Eevee did get hurt quite a bit, and I don't want it worse."
"Sure!" Brock started to get something from his backpack. Then Piplup collapsed.
"Wah! Piplup!" Dawn bent down, gently picking up her Pokemon.
"Piplup is hurt as well." Brock examined it. "I'll treat them both." He took out a Potion and sprayed Piplup and Eevee. Then he looked at Dawn. "It's important for any trainer to know what the condition of their Pokemon is, like Chelsea."
Dawn gave a deep sigh. "I'm sorry Piplup!"
"Look, Piplup will be fine!" I comforted her.
"Piplup!" Piplup waved at Dawn, recovering.
"See?" "I smiled.
"Yeah, thanks Chelsea."
"Now let's take a look at Pikachu." Brock said, turning to the yellow Mouse Pokemon.
"Thanks Brock, you're the best!" Ash complimented.
Soon, we were all standing in a telephone booth on the side of the road.
"Well, that's excellent!" Professor Rowan said. "I'm glad Pikachu has its trainer back. Everything worked out fine."
"Thanks Professor!" Dawn replied.
"Of course. By the way Ash, I just received a package from your mother."
"My mom?" Ash repeated.
A certain purple haired trainer with his Elekid next to him stood in front of the wreckage of the Team Rocket machine and stared at it, in deep thought.
"Wow!" Dawn exclaimed as we walked down the road. "Brock, that's so cool you're a breeder! This is the first time I've met one!"
"Really?" Brock asked, looking modest. "Well, when we get back to the lab, I'll make some Pokemon food that's perfect for Water and Normal types."
"Piplup piplup!" Piplup said, ecstatically jumping up and down.
"Eve eevee!" Eevee happily chimed in from my shoulder.
"You're a lucky Pokemon, Piplup." Dawn smiled.
I turned to Eevee. "You are too."
"Huh?" Everyone turned towards the sound of a motorbike. It was Officer Jenny.
"Hey! I heard the news!" She said, grinning.
"Hey Officer Jenny!" Ash waved back.
Jenny stopped in front of us. "That's great!"
I looked back at Brock. He had hearts in his eyes. I snickered. Hm… It would be fun…
"How's Pikachu?" She continued.
"Just fine." Ash answered. "Thanks again!"
"And your beauty!" Brock broke in. Then he grabbed Officer Jenny's hands. "My love knows no bounds! Thanks for helping my friend Ash in his hour of need!"
"Sure…?" Jenny said, sweatdropping.
"Huh?" Dawn asked, looking at me.
"Hey." I whispered to Eevee. It looked uncertain, but then nodded.
"And now I'm asking you to help me! On my hour of need! 'Cause I need YOU!"
"What's wrong with Brock?" Dawn asked, the question directed at both Ash and I.
"Nothing… Well, at least not for him." Ash answered, sweatdropping.
I walked up near Brock. Eevee jumped off my shoulder. "Ready Eevee?"
"Alright, go!" Eevee hit Brock with a light Tackle, and he was pushed away from Jenny and fell on the ground.
"Ahhh!" He yelled.
"Uh…" Jenny wasn't sure what to do.
I burst out laughing. Eevee came up next to me.
"What was that for?" Ash demanded, turning to me.
"Oh, a little joke." I snickered.
"Chelsea…" Dawn warned. "C'mon."
"Are you alright?" Ash ran over to Brock. Pikachu followed.
Brock stood up. "Yeah, I'm fine. It didn't hurt at all."
"Yeah, because it was a light Tackle." I was still laughing. It was always funny to watch it happen, but to actually do it, was another thing. "Nice job, Eevee."
Eevee looked up at me, somewhat concerned and unsure. "Eve?"
"Don't worry. He's alright. It was just a prank."
"Well… Sorry, but I gotta go. See you around." Jenny hopped on her bike and left.
"Bye! Thanks for everything!" I waved.
"But… How did you know?" Ash questioned.
"Huh?" I turned my attention back to Ash.
"I mean… How did you know Brock would react that way?"
"Oh, that's-" Before I could continue, Dawn interrupted.
"She just saw it and it was a joke!" She said quickly.
Piplup, going along with its trainer, agreed. "Piplup!"
"Hey, Dawn, it's okay. We gotta tell them anyway." I said.
"Are you sure?" Dawn persisted. "The Professor told us not to tell anyone!"
"I know, but they should know. They're definitely trustworthy."
Ash, Pikachu and Brock looked back and forth between us. "What's going on?"
"I'll explain everything…" I turned back to them. "When we're at the Professor's lab. Professor Rowan will help back our story up."
Dawn still looked doubtful. "Alright…"
"Well, let's go!" I cheerfully said. Then I started running towards the lab, Eevee right next to me. Ash with Pikachu on his shoulder, Dawn holding Piplup, and Brock were right behind me.
