Chapter 1: The suffering begins!
For a young Pokemon trainer seems that his life was over, a few hours after his dream of being a Pokemon master was totally destroyed by his most powerful rival Paul Slate. A cruel and vile trainer and he was willing to give the lives of his Pokemon to use to achieve his goal. He will do anything to win, even if it cost the lives of his Pokemon. And that was the difference between Paul and Ash; he lost everything in that fight. People thought it was arrogant, that somebody gives everything to the Pokemon. Ash did not think so; he was always caring and was able to give his life for those who needed it. And someone could testify that and that someone was his best friend, a yellow electric Pokemon named Pikachu. He has always trusted Ash and he would follow him to the end of the world. But the fall of the young trainer was very painful and it was not only by the defeat in the Lily of the Valley Conference by Paul, but the greatest pain came from the treachery of it as he sees his friends, you could almost say that he has no family.
A young Ash Ketchum was in a room with his Pikachu, who had recovered from the severe beating that Paul just given him, taking away all hope of winning the Lily of the Valley Conference and therefore to become a Pokemon master. He sighed deeply because people did not understand. Even his friends said how powerful Paul was. The worst thing to be a Pokemon master is to let your own Pokemon suffer because of a title.
"You know Pikachu, I never will put you or my other Pokemon in danger, you are the only thing I have, it's not worth to win at the expense of suffering, please forgive me." said Ash in a tone of great sadness.
"Pika pika pika pika pika pi pi" (I know you're not as Paul Ash, you are unique so I will always be with you) said Pikachu with a smile to his trainer.
"What is it Pikachu, so I want you to know that it is not your fault or that of my other Pokemon, only mine. I should have known the tricks of Paul. So forgive me Pikachu, I don't deserve to be your friend or your trainer. Perhaps the only thing I'm in agreement with Paul is that I'm a loser and not worthy of you to be my Pokemon. I feel the same with Staraptor, Torterra, Charizard, and the others I have met." said a really sad Ash.
And at that point Pikachu was more than shocked, he was worried. He was so much that he wanted to throw a thunderbolt against him, but the sadness and loneliness in the eyes of his partner were too big. Then he heard voices that change the life of Ash forever.
"It is amazing how that idiot cannot do anything right for once in his life." said a very annoyed Misty.
"It's true that I've traveled so much with him, at first you and then with the other girls. I can't understand why Ash is still so weak." said Brock with annoyance in his voice.
"Imagine; that the fool must believe that we support him. He's wrong. Thank god I never had faith in him." Max said while grinning.
"True, since I saw him he gave me the impression of being a real trainer." said May with sarcasm in her voice.
"The good news is that I just talked with Paul, and he offered me to train and help me. If a trainer is just as pathetic as Ash, who lives in a dream where he believes only in the best of everyone, then he'll get nowhere in life."
"Wow Dawn what luck, instead we had to go through all the time pretending that he had skills, when it was all contraire." said Misty sighing deeply.
"Tell me about it. I'm his mother and now I have to go back to Pallet town with such shame. Why can't Ash be as skilled as Gary or Paul?" said Delia with resignation.
At that point Pikachu was angry, and that was understandable. He wanted to electrocute all as them. He could not believe that those people who knew Ash so long, that those people were more cruel and selfish than Team Rocket. Team Rocket were saints compared to them, but Ash risked his life so many times for them, and that is how they paid him?! Then Pikachu realized that he was not the only one that heard the conversation between the others. He looked to Ash and what he saw broke his heart completely. Ash, who was always smiling and was cheerful, was now literally dead. Ash's will to live was gone. He wanted to die.
"So worthless eh, Pikachu. Well if you do not want me anymore as your trainer then so be it." said Ash. Ash left quickly, not waiting for a response from his trusted partner.
"Pika pika pika pikapi" (Oh Arceus do not let you think I will do that Ash ….. Ash, Ashhhhhhh) screamed Pikachu fearing the worst for his friend.
The young trainer ran into the woods as if his life depended on it, for no longer worth living; that is why he left. To Pikachu and the other Pokemon, their beloved trainer, and his love for each one of them, was so great to let them live with someone else.
"WHY ARCEUS? WHY? WHY AM I SO PATHETC THAT I AM NOT WORTHY TO HAVE EVERYONE ON MY SIDE? I HAVE NO FRIENDS AND NO FAMILY! I DON'T DESERVE TO LIVE! PIKACHU AND THE OTHERS WILL BE OFF WITHOUT ME. IT'S CLEAR THAT EVERYONE'S HAPPY WITHOUT ME!" Ash screamed out loud. Then he fell to the ground, crying for so long, until Pikachu reached him and he approached his friend. The pain was so intense. For the first time in his life, Pikachu felt hatred for the people who did this to someone as special as Ash.
But Pikachu was not alone in the suffering of Ash, all the Pokemon around the world felt his pain and sorrow. The pain that consumes Ash was their own pain, their guardian angel who protected them at all cost was broken and the cheerful and friendly Ash had died today. A few of his Pokemon friends Charizard, Squirtle, Pidgeout did not hesitate a second to leave everything they did because the pain of their friend was so intense, they would find and protect Ash, because no one messes with Ash and get away with it.
In the Slate of Origin, where the legendary Pokemon live. Arceus has been watching over Ash since his birth until today. He has always thought that young boy had the purest heart of all people, he was not chosen for nothing, so what he did not understand why the poor boy was abandoned and betrayed by he considered his friends and family. Arceus wanted to destroy the people who destroy the life of the Chosen One, but deep in the soul of the trainer, there is no desire for destruction. But there are signs of grief, pain and especially the desire to die, but to the thought of a dead Ash, Arceus shivering all over his body. He had decided that anyone or anything will not hurt him again.
"I guess we all know why we are here?" asked Arceus seriously at the other legendary Pokemon.
"Arceus, we know that the aura of the Chosen One takes off fast. We cannot lose him Arceus." Suicune said while crying.
"I know some people are stupid, but injuring anyone and especially someone as pure as Ash is very stupid, even for them. I would prefer to return and try to end their lives." Mewtwo said angrily while worrying about Ash.
"The soul of Ash is broken and by that of his "friends and family." That was incredibly cruel under such conditions, but we cannot do without Ash." said Latias while she worried about what might happen to her protector.
"It is true, we must find a way to get the Chosen One away from the abyss because if we lose him, the Pokemon on Earth, including myself, then do not have the desire to continue living." said Lugia extremely concerned about Ash.
"It is true Lugia, Ash has already rescued each of us once. He risked his life for me and the Tree of Beginning. So I have no doubt that when Ash is gone we do not want to live anymore because what Ash has achieved a lot." said Mew grateful for knowing Ash.
"Are you all ready to leave the Pokemon dimension to be with Ash? Would you would be willing to live on Earth together with Ash?" Arceus asked seriously at his colleagues. While he waited for the answer, Arceus asks himself whether this can do to save the life of Ash.
While the other legendary Pokemon were surprised by the offer of their father, they closed their eyes and thought of every time they got into trouble. The only ones who were there for them was Ash, who risked his life for theirs. There was no doubt in their decision, so Celebi decided to speak for everyone.
"Father, we have decided, so I speak for everyone here that we what to be Ash his Pokemon.
This is our way to show our gratitude to him and so we can keep him safe against those who have him have hurt." said Celebi about their decision.
On Earth, and especially in the depths of the forest, where Ash's pain is still very strong, it was raining very hard and not only that, Ash is completely unconscious and soaked. He had a really high temperature and Pikachu was going crazy because he didn't know what to do. At first sight, it might be noted that Ash has no desire to live and he was more than willing to kill him and that brought Pikachu into panic, and not so little either.
"Pika pika pika pikapi pikapi pikapi pika" (Do not dare not die Ash! Do you hear me, I will not let you die. Like it or not like you will stay with me! DO YOU UNDERSTAND ME Ash Ketchum) A distraught Pikachu yelled at his trainer.
But it seemed that his trainer would not listen, but instead, his fever got worse by the second. In the spirit of Ash, he couldn't carry on anymore. All he wanted is for Pikachu and the rest of his Pokemon to find a truly effective trainer, and that this trainer would raise them to be good and protect what he believed in. Pikachu was more than desperate, Pikachu would cry when Ash died.
Pikachu suddenly felt the presence of two beings, one was a Pokemon and the other was a human.
"Pika pika pika pika pi pi pika chu pikapi pikapi pikapi" (I'd leave if I were you, whoever you are. I will not let you come closer to my friend. Ash will not be hurt again while I live) said a very angry Pikachu who would do anything to put his best friend to protect.
"Pikachu calm down, I do not want to harm Ash. After everything I went through, I would not want to hurt any case." said a voice from a bush.
Pikachu then saw clearly who the Pokemon and the human were. Pikachu was really surprised, because it was Sir Aaron and his Lucario.
"Pika pika Pikaaaa pikapi" (Arceus , what is happening here? Lucario, Sir Aaron, how are you here?) Asked a surprised Pikachu.
Pikachu, we will tell you later how we are alive. But our first worry is about Ash, and you know that I can understand you." replied Sir Aaron.
"It feels good to know, because otherwise I would lose my voice. But our focus should be on Ash because it's very bad. " said Pikachu concerned about his friend.
At that moment, Sir Aaron touched Ash his forehead and he felt different things. First, that his temperature is quite higher than normal. Second, he felt that Ash wanted to die and that he was also mentally wronged. Sir Aaron could hear every word that his 'friends' had said about him.
"Ohhhhh my son, what have they done to you?" asked a concerned Sir Aaron.
