The Return of the Forgotten Hero
Disclaimer: I don't own POKEMON, PERIOD.
Author's Note: This is not a betrayal story, and it's not one of those stories that Ash returns with a young child with him either. I have not decided on the pairing on this story just yet. However, it may be an Ash and Misty, Ash and Anabel, Ash and Serena, or Ash and Harem with Misty, Anabel, and Serena.
Up on Mount Silver, a young man is watching all of his pokemon training and sparring each other. He is around 6'1 with a muscular body, long and messy raven colored hair, chocolate brown eyes, little z's on his face, full blown beard and mustache, and a devastating scar on his left cheek. He has long dark blue long sleeve shirt with a navy and black sweater and a long navy trench coat, and he has long dark blue long pants with combat boots. He has a black and navy hat, pair of sunglasses, and black and navy gloves. He also has a special bracelets on his wrist to carry his pokeballs, and he also has a necklace with a pokeball with a thunderbolt symbol on it.
A jackal like creature and an orange electric mouse walk towards the man. 'My friend, may I suggest that it is almost time to retreat to the house'. The jackal mentally said to the man. The man looks at the pokemon. 'Yes my friend it is'. The man mentally thought to the pokemon. "Everyone return", the man said to his pokemon. All the pokemon return into their pokeballs located in his wrist. The man, the jackal, and the electric rodent walk with the man to their dwelling on the mountain.
The dwelling is not massive but simpler with important necessities. It has a video phone, transporter, kitchen, bathroom, and a bedroom. The man sends his pokemon to Nurse Joy, and she transport them back on the transporter on daily bases. The man notices two emails on his computer and he sighs as it mentions about his most beloved partner and an important tournament that is about to take place. "My friend it mentions about Master Pikachu doesn't it"? The electric mouse pokemon asks the man. The man looks at it. "Yes Bolt, it mentions about my most beloved partner". The man said to the pokemon named Bolt. The jackal pokemon glares at Bolt. "Raichu, you know how our friend feels about Master Pikachu especially since it happened". It said to Bolt.
Bolt looks at the pokemon. "Lucario, I do know how our friend feels about him. I was the one that saw Master Pikachu saying his final words to me remember? Plus ever since our friend gave me a name, you still called me by my species name". Bolt said to Lucario. Lucario looks at Bolt. "I have told you that I am not comfortable with human given name. Even if our friend gave you that name to prevent getting Master Pikachu and you mixed up, I will call you by your species name". Lucario said to Bolt. The man looks at the two pokemon arguing. "That's enough Bolt and Lucario, we have to leave for Indigo Platuea tomorrow morning". The man said to them. The two pokemon nod to the man. "You are going to compete in the tournament, my friend". Lucario said to the man. The man looks at Lucario. "Yes, it will serve to end my mission that I have been on for the past six years". The man said to Lucario. Lucario nods as the man went to his room. He went towards a shrine that he made in his room. The man kneels down as he looks at a picture of him and his most beloved pokemon partner when he was younger and all of his friends and pokemon. On his bedside table, there is a daily newspaper about the capture of Team Rocket by a mysterious stranger.
"Pikachu, there has not been a day where I have missed you. Your classic thunderbolt send Jessie, James, and Meowth blasting off into the sky. Never in my wildest dreams that Jessie and James are also gone in the same place where you are now, and Meowth has turned over a new leaf by becoming a pet living with my mom. Plus I would never imagine Butch and Cassidy were the ones that took Jessie and James's lives. However, the one that took your life, he will never see the light of day again along with Giovanni. Domino, Dr. Zagar, Dr. Namba, and Pierce quit Team Rocket and became my allies in my mission. Other it was hard getting along with Dr. Zagar at first considering about their schemes in the Unova region. At least, he and Dr. Namba are putting their skills for good use now. Domino and Pierce are together and living in a comfortable life in the Kalos region. I am going to compete in a major tournament, and I am returning to the world after being away for so long. I am not sure if my friends will forgive me about disappearing like the way I did. The only reaction I can see from them is being angry with me". The man said as he went to bed that night.
