Contestshipping Johto style

Discussion in 'Shipping Fics' started by dolphy-chan, Sep 10, 2006.

    OK, so I know that isn't the best title for it. It was hard to think of a suitable name for my fanfiction. It was either that or A Journey through Johto, and I tell you what I chose sounded better to me. I am going to rate it PG, for now, it may move up in further chapters, but right now I am not to sure.

    May Maple has been travelling with friends for her first two years of travelling and coordinating, but what happens when Ash, Misty, Brock and Max ant to go to the battle region, but she doesn't? She decides to make a journey all by herself. Unfortuneatly she doesn't know where to go, until she stumbles across something about contests. There are contests in the Johto region. This is where her Journey begins. What pokemon will she catch? what ribbons will she obtain? What's with all the damn questions? Read and find out.


    Her name was May Maple; she was 13. Her hair was a Chestnut brown parting on each side of her head, while her eyes shined brightly of sapphire blue. She was excited to be on her way to the Johto region. There at Johto she would be able to prove to the pokemon world that she was Top coordinator. Johto region had recently started holding contests and their grand festivals were apparently ones not to be missed. She was not one to miss out on such an opportunity. It took a lot for her to convince people she should go there and not to the battle region (A/N: I couldn't think of a name to call a battle region…all the good ones were taken ^^; )


    The gang had finally arrived at Ash's home town, Pallet Town. On their way there, they caught up with Misty, who was finally relieved of her gym leader duties, for a couple of years. So she decided to join the gang again and travel with them.

    Eventually they arrived at Ash's house. After dinner they were deciding and where they should go off to next.
    "So, Brock any ideas of where to go that don't include massive amounts of pretty girls?" asked Ash, the word don't being emphasized. Brock just sweatdropped. They were now getting serious. Brock looked though one of his guide books and found something.
    "Well, we could go to the north of the Kanto region. It says here there is a region made specifically for battling". Brock said while pointing at his guide book. Then he looked at May with a sad face "Unfortunately there are no contests in that region, May" he finished. As soon as this was heard, she became upset, but didn't show it, so she tried to think of ways to avoid the battle region. She didn't hear the name of the region since she seemed to let her mind wonder and zoned out a bit.

    It started getting late, so the gang decided to head off to bed. May was the last go of to sleep. All she could think about were ways to avoid the battle region. No ideas came to her head. She was upset about that. If none came then she would HAVE to go to the battle region, and do nothing but battle. Then she decided to go through Brock's guide book and se if there was something in there for her. She kept searching and searching.

    It was getting really late, then she had come across something that had interested her. It was an advertisement about contests, and apparently the best contest there ever seemed to be, the contests were held in the Johto region. The contests hadn't started yet; they were waiting for the New Year to begin which wasn't far away. One month to be exact. She had two days to convince her parent and friends to let her go the Johto region to compete in contests and get herself there and registered before the competition. After all, she did need the time to get there.

    It was easy with her parents, they agreed seeing as they wanted her to do something with pokemon, and they knew Max would be okay since he and Raltz would be together. (A/N: remember in one of the episodes Max said he would be with Raltz when he became a trainer, well now that Max is a trainer he has Raltz)

    However her friends and brother weren’t as easy. They wanted her to come, but eventually they gave in and let May go off to Johto. Max wasn't too happy about that, but then he remembered that he was going to the battle region with his friends so it would be all good.

    May and the gang said their goodbyes. Soon they were off in two separate directions…


    May decided that she would only bring her Blaziken, it was classified as the "Blaze pokemon. It had powerful claw-like fists, its feet and legs were covered in feathers of red and orange. The beak and head of Blaziken was red and its chest of feathers were a white-creamy colour. (A/N: it evolved from Combusken, I don't like Combusken that much) and Wartortle. Wartortle was classified as the "turtle pokemon". Its body was a dark blue, while its shell was red colour on one side and on the other was a yellowish colour. Its tail was a light blue and the ends of the tail were in coils. (A/N: it evolved from Squirtle). May could see the outlines of New Bark town. Where she would be able to register for the Johto contests. So she set off to New Bark town to register for the Johto contests.

    Finally she had arrived at New Bark Town. She immediately went to the pokemon centre to register and let her pokemon rest. Before she had left Pallet Town she asked if her mum could send over some new clothes for her journey.

    She wanted to look a bit different from her previous journeys. Makes a new impression you know. She was wearing her usually red bandanna with a white pokeball print on it. She now had a red singlet top on with a torchic print in the top centre of it, this was accompanied with a black mini skirt (not a tight one) and her black bike shorts underneath the skirt. Her gloves were replaced with white sweat bands which had black and red stripes across it in the middle. Finally, she replaced her yellow fanny pack with a black back pack. Her outfit was finished off with her black and red trainers (A/N: like the ones she wears with her usual outfit only replace the orange colours with black) and white ankle socks.

    She went over to Nurse Joy and left her pokemon there to get some rest and have a check-up before the beginning of the contests and the rest of her journey.

    The best thing she thought this journey was, no one here knew any gym leaders from Hoenn, she would be able to make a name for herself, finally, without being known as Norman's daughter.


    So, what did you guys think of it? my first fanfiction. I accept any and all comments, critiques and reviews. It probably wasn't that good any way. Chapters are coming up.

    Yes I love Chikorita, that is why I chose to use that for the first good pokemon May comes across. Chikorita's are cute, and cuddly and green....well most of them anyway. Still the same rating as before, What was it again? PG? That's right PG- for most likely future violence...I have a weird mind :p

    1. Saving Chikorita

    May had set out on her journey, she was alone without her friends cheering her on, but she didn't mind, as long as she got to compete in contest she was happy. She was over happy, she was excited. She had just made it to the outskirts of New Bark town and was making her towards the next town. The first contest would be held at exactly 3 months away in Azalea. She was a still a while away from Violet City, she hadn't even passed through Cherrygrove City yet, for that matter; not even reached it. She would still have another day before she arrived at Cherrygrove.

    It seemed that May had been walking to Cherrygrove fro a while, night was starting to appear at the edge of the horizon. May had already walked enough today, so she decided to stop for the night. It was a quiet night. There was a full moon, the stars were brightly shinning and there really seemed to be no sound, except the occasional crackle from the fire she had set up. She ate her food, gave her pokemon their own food to eat and after a while, with her pokemon cuddled up next to her, she fell to sleep.

    The sun woke May from her slumber. She fluttered her eyes as she attempted to wake up. Slowly she arose and stretched. "Blaziken, Wartortle it's time to wake up and start the new day" she said eagerly. Blaziken and Wartortle slowly got up. When the eventually opened their eyes they could see their trainer packing up to get ready to leave.

    When May was done she had breakfast and gave her pokemon some pokemon food. After breakfast she returned her pokemon and set off again. They heat of the day had begun. She saw a lot of pokemon lying around with a tired look on their face. "The heat must be getting to the wild pokemon" May thought while she continued on with her journey. Most of the pokemon she saw were Hoot hoot, Sentret and Ratatta, she didn't really care much about those pokemon; they were common and nothing really interesting that she wanted for competing in her contests.

    It became about noon when May decided to stop for a break. As she kept walking she came across a pecha berry tree, and decided to stop there. Again she let out Blaziken and Wartortle. Then she handed the two each a few pecha berries to eat and then she ate a few herself. May and her pokemon just sat there a while, under the pecha tree enjoying the shade of the tree. It was nice and peaceful and quiet when a cry came from the bushes.
    "CHIKAAAAA!!!" cried a Chikorita that came running out of the bushes; it kept running with its eyes closed when it bumped into Wartortle.
    "Warrr" cried Wartortle as it fell back from the impact it received from Chikorita.
    "What the?" May was surprised to the Chikorita. She got out her pokedex to learn more about the Chikorita.
    "Chikorita. The leaf pokemon. In battle, Chikorita waves its leaf around to keep the foe at bay. However, a sweet fragrance also wafts from the leaf, becalming the battling pokemon and creating a cozy, friendly atmosphere all around", said the female voice from the pokedex.

    May, could see the Chikorita was in pain, also it was a different coloured then the one in the pokdex. In the pokedex, the Chikorita had a green all around body with varying shades of green, but this Chikorita was coloured much differently. The leaf on its head was a tanned brown, orange colour, while the body was a lite orange, yellow colour and the beads around its neck were the same tanned colour as the leaf only slightly liter.
    She wondered what happened, but decided to ask questions later and help out the Chikorita first. May went and knelt down near Chikorita, she put her hand near it but immediately Chikorita slapped it away with its vine whip.
    "CHIKA" it shouted back at me, angrily.
    "Ouch! What did you do that for?" May whine as she winced from the slap, it did actually hurt. May was upset the Chikorita hurt when she was trying to help it, but she realized that it was probably scared of what might happen if May did touch it. Again May put her hand and moved it towards Chikorita. Chikorita was stubborn, instead of attacking it just moved away, holding its ground firmly, but weakly. This seemed to continue for a while until Chikorita's body finally gave in, it was tired and fell down. May was a little sad that it took that long to let the Chikorita know it was ok, but she pushed those feelings aside and went closer to Chikorita. May picked up and cradled the Chikorita like a baby, holding it close to her so it wouldn't fall. Then May went to the pecha berry tree to look at her pokenav. She wanted to know who long until Cherrygrove. It would be better for Chikorita to be cared for at the pokemon centre then with her. It wasn't far just a couple more hours and she would be there. May returned her pokemon and set off to Cherrygrove, still with Chikorita cradled in her arms.

    May eventually arrived to see the outlines or Cherrygrove City. It didn't appear to be a large town. But that wasn't important right now, getting Chikorita to the pokemon centre was important. She ran to the pokemon centre. There was nothing extravagant about the pokemon centre, it seemed to be pretty modern one like in her home town Petalburg. There was a Nurse Joy and a few Chansey roaming around helping people and other things Chansey do.
    When she got in she went to the desk where Nurse Joy and a Chansey were working.
    "Nurse Joy, Can you please help this Chikorita, I found it along the way here. It seems pretty badly injured". May said in a worried tone.
    "Let me see it" said Joy. Joy inspected Chikorita before asking chansey to bring out a bed to take Chikorita to the Emergency ward. Chansey understood immediately and went to get a bed. "Chans" it said as it went off.
    "Nurse Joy could you look at my pokemon as well" asked May.
    "Sure thing" Said Joy and got a tray for May to put her pokeballs on. May put her pokeballs on the tray and rented a room for the night.
    Chansey came back with a bed and helped put Chikorita onto the bed. Then left back to where it came from.
    "May I think it would be best you wait here while I go do a check up Chikorita and help it out" said Joy as she left May to go to the emergency ward. May just nodded. She was really worried about the Chikorita, it was just in her to care for others, compassion for another living soul.
    It was getting late, May kept shifting around the room waiting for Joy to come out and tell if Chikorita would be ok. She started pacing back and forth, her nervousness was quite obvious to anyone.
    After another hour, Joy came out with a smile on her face.
    "Chikorita will be okay May, it as a good thing you brought it here, if not I don't think it could have survived much longer. The thing about this all is that Chikorita aren't usually found in this area. There are more around near Violet City, from what I remember there hasn't been any Chikorita findings around here in a long time-".Joy said
    "Really? I wonder why the Chikorita was here then" questioned May
    "What else is amazing is the colour of this Chikorita. Look at its body; it is a completely different colour to the ones I have seen", finished Joy.
    "Yea, I noticed that to" said May agreeing to Nurse Joy's comments.
    "Can I go see Chikorita Joy? Asked May
    "Yea go ahead" said Joy, and then left to do other Nurse Joy jobs.

    May made her way to the room Chikorita was put in. May slowly opened the door to find Chikorita sleeping one the bed peacefully. It looked so calm. May quietly walked over to Chikorita, taking in her surroundings. There was the bed Chikorita was on which was next to a window, a bed side table next to it. A bit further down the bed was a simple chair to sit on. The walls were a light creamish colour. The floor was a simple white carpet and the furnishings were made of wood.

    When May reached Chikorita, she grabbed the chair and sat on it. May continued to watch over Chikorita like a mother. Making sure Chikorita was ok and comfortable. Finally hours later May fell asleep, leaning on the bed while still on the chair. The two slept there together peacefully the entire night.

    The next morning
    The Sun was shinning and the Pidgey were chirping as the first sign of daylight snuck its way into the room May and Chikorita were sleeping in. Chikorita finally was awoken from its slumber by the sun creeping in. Slowly it opened its eyes and saw May sleeping there, almost right next Chikorita. Chikorita just stared a while before it noticed a blanket on itself.
    "This girl must have put it on me" thought Chikorita.
    After getting up from where it slept Chikorita stretched and walked over to May, once it was next to May it began to nudge May a little with its vine whip and called out quietly in its voice.
    "Chika, chika" it whispered. Eventually May's sleep gave in and she opened her eyes to see Chikorita next to her, just staring at her. It took May a while to realize what was happening. Chikorita was better, and just woke her up.
    "So, I am guessing you feel better, Chikorita" asked May.
    "Chika!" said Chikorita proudly with a smile.
    May eventually got up and opened the door to the room and walked outside to the counter where Joy would be. Chikorita closely followed May to Joy.
    When they got there Joy was awake and doing her job.
    "Hi Nurse Joy are my pokemon ready, yet?" May ask kindly as she walked up to Joy.
    "Sure are, Just wait a second and I shall be back with them, they have already been fed this morning for you", said Joy as she left to get May's pokemon.
    "Here you go May, your pokemon", said Joy as she gave May's pokemon back to her.

    May went back to her room and packed up her gear so she could make her way towards Violet City and her next contest. Chikorita again followed May back to her room and helped May pack and clean up. Finally it was time to leave. She closed the room and left with Chikorita to return the key to the room to Joy and get some breakfast.

    Breakfast was done and quick and May began to set off on her journey. May had just left the pokemon centre when something grabbed her wrist, she looked down at her wrist to find Chikorita's Vine whip attached to her arm.
    "Chikorita? What do you want?" May asked as she bent down to Chikorita's level.
    "Chika, Chika, chika!" it said in its own language.
    "What is it Chikorita" May asked stupidly. (A/N: XD, so typical)
    "I think Chikorita wants to join you, May" said Joy as she appeared out of no where. That kind of bothered May but she got over it.
    "Really Chikorita? You want to come along with me?" asked May to Chikorita
    "Chika" said Chikorita as it nodded.
    "Well okay, your coming with me", May said as she got out a pokeball, "Pokeball GO!!!" May threw the pokeball to Chikorita, bouncing off the leaf pokemon and a red laser swallowed Chikorita into the pokeball.
    The red and white ball shook to the left and right a few times before it finally stopped. "bing" The pokeball had made the noise that indicated to May Chikorita was caught. May went over to the pokeball.
    "Alright I caught a Chikorita" May said triumphantly as she made a victory pose.

    May was now on her way to the next contest and chance for her first Johto ribbon. She smiled at that and continued her journey to Violet City. May reached Violet City in incredible time. She basically was flying Routes 30 and 31. May had quickly passed by Violet City; taking a couple of days to reach Violet City; there were no contests there, well there wasn't one there yet, so she wasn't interested in stopping. May headed straight for Azalea Town, she was pumped and ready to get to Azalea Town, for her first contest in Johto.

    Well, I really like this fic though there is a problem. You posted three times in a row, I'm not being mean or anything, but you can only post in a forum once a day. You cna edit the posts so you can say something to your reviewers and have your chapter in there too. Also, when ya want to quote someone just put the quote between [qu ote] and [/qu ote], just take out the space between the u and o. I like May's personalitly and outfit for a metter of fact, it gives her a little change from the normal. Drew better be in the next chapter too, I love Drew! ^^

    It's good, but you tend to lump all of your description together. Spreading it out makes your description of the characters more memorable. you also don't use very much description for the setting.

    I like this story, I think it has a nice realism to it. Though I think it may be just a little rushed (which I, myself have done), but that doesn't mean it is bad.
    I am hoping Drew will appear in the next chappie.
    Keep up the good work

    I am back with another chapter to Contestshipping Johto style. I have tried to add more detail into the story as possible and fixed up most of the spelling mistakes I saw. RxR, no flaming.


    "CHIKKKAAAA!" Chikorita screamed as it tried to release a Solar beam. It didn't work, again it failed. May and Chikorita had been working on it for ages. But it just never seemed to work. May thought that if Chikorita learned that attack it would go perfect in their next contest. May had planned from the beginning, that when she got her newly obtained Chikorita, that she would use it in her next contest.

    May and her pokemon had just passed through Violet City and were having a training break near the ruins of Alph. Usually she would stop by and look at the ruins but, May was more focused on getting more training done so she could pass the preliminaries and win her first ribbon.

    "It's ok Chikorita, we'll get it. In the mean time let's work on our combination moves. And then our routine, Okay?" May asked as she tried to comfort the upset Chikorita. Immediately Chikorita bounced up and smiled with a look of determination on its face.
    "Alright Chikorita, first lets start with our routine, we need to get that right since we only have 3 weeks before the contest" said May. Chikorita agreed and nodded.
    "Alright, Chikorita lets start off with Razor leaf and try to aim it up at the sky, then follow it up with poison powder, also make that go up to the sky" May commanded.
    Chikorita nodded the orders and proceeded with attacks.

    "Chika!!!" Chikorita yelled as it released the leaves from the leaf of its head and aimed it up into the sky. The leaves all flew up into the sky. The leaves were scattered into different directions powerfully and came into contact with each other causing the leaves to crush and fall down back to earth, with sparkles every where from the little explosions caused by the leaves. Then Chikorita let out poison powder which made a large mass of pinkish dust swarm around the leaves, leaving pink and green swirls all around Chikorita.

    Finally May then began ordering another attack. She prayed it would work
    "Chikorita SOLAR BEAM!! And aim it at the poison powder and razor leaves" May yelled out with a determined face. Again Chikorita tried,

    "CHIKKKAAAA!!!" Chikorita felt like she was going to get it. The solar beam was launched and blasted right through the razor leaf and poison powder mixture. There was an extreme amount of light, which caused May to shield her eyes. Then just before the light was cleared May asked Chikorita to use Synthesis. (A/N: I know that in a normal pokemon move set that the pokemon can only learn 4 attacks, I have already mentioned like 4 before and Synthesis makes 5, but that gets kind of stuffy and boring so, in my fanfic, I will have as many attacks as I want) Again Chikorita obeyed.
    After the light was clear all you could see were sparkles glowing around Chikorita as it has its eyes closed.

    May ran up to Chikorita, "That was perfect Chikorita" May exclaimed as she hugged Chikorita. "Chika" it replied cutely, it was just as happy as May was.
    After that they continued working on combo moves. After May let out Blaziken and Wartortle to meet Chikorita and have some exercise.
    "Blaziken, Wartortle I'd like you to meet our newest member, Chikorita, Chikorita I'd like you to meet the rest of my pokemon team Blaziken and Wartortle". May said as she introduced the pokemon to each other. All her pokemon gave out a cry. They all seemed happy to meet each other.

    After a bit more training with Blaziken and Wartortle, May decided to continue on with her journey, she only had three weeks to get to Azalea Town to register and perfect her moves with Chikorita before the contest. Night time had fallen and she could just see Union Cave, she hoped it wouldn't take long to pass though the cave, if so there would be one more day and she would make it to Azalea Town. She was relived that she was almost there.

    Again she let out her pokemon and let them rest. She could see they were getting slightly tired after all this training so she decided to stop for a while until she got to Azalea Town. May ate dinner and gave her pokemon some, then she went to sleep.


    May had started her journey earlier then usual so she could get there quickly. She was set up and ready by 8 am. May entered Union Cave to be greeted by a spring close to the entrance of the cave. (A/N: I am recounting it, from the Gold, Silver and Crystal games, from what I can remember) There were formations of rocks at every corner she turned, there wasn't any darkness in the cave, and she could make out random figures which she guessed were pokemon. May continued walking; she was almost half way through Union cave. There were a lot of Zubat and Rattata in the cave, an occasional Onyx but that was the only pokemon she ever saw in the cave.

    A grin got plastered on her face, she could see the end of the cave becoming near. May was out of the cave. She would soon be able to compete in a contest again; as well she hoped a certain green haired coordinator might be there. She didn't like him, she lied to herself, she just want to see a "friend" she hadn't seen in a long time.
    How could I like a person like that any way? I mean he teases me a lot, and makes fun of my "bad" coordinating skills every time we meet, but then he always gives me a rose in the end and says it's for Beautifly. ", she thought as she walked towards Azalea Town.

    May quickly got to Azalea town; she passed a couple of berry trees and a well, which was called Slowpoke well. There was an amazing number of slowpoke around the town, it was crazy. If you weren’t careful you could trip on one.

    She eventually reached the pokemon centre, but she was still deep in thought trying to convince herself she didn't like the green haired coordinator. She seemed to be so lost in thought that she didn't see that she was going to walk into someone. But still May was able to make it to the pokemon centre. She still continued walking and didn't notice a thing until….. "THUD!" May fell onto her backside and was finally brought back out of her mind. When May finally acknowledged her surroundings, she could see the pokemon centre looked like a simple log cabin, only much bigger. (A/N: I don't remember what the pokemon centre in Azalea looked like, it has been so long since the Johto series have been on TV)
    "Ouch…"whined May "Sorry, I wasn't looking where I was going" she said sincerely. She hadn't actually looked up the person she went into because she was still recovering from her fall.
    "May?" asked the voice. As soon as she heard that voice, she knew who it was, it was him, it was Drew. Slowly she opened her eyes to reveal in fact it was him, looking down her like she was some little kid. May was half shocked to see him, the other half delighted to see , he was the one she would dream about in her dreams, he was the knight in shining armor in some cases.


    I bumped into him, I didn't mean to, I guess I was just too deep in thought to notice my surroundings, and yet still I managed to walk into the pokemon centre, weird eh?
    He looks pretty cute, I have to admit, but I would never admit that to him. He was wearing his usual outfit aqua-ish-blue jeans, with a black ling sleeve shirt and purple t-shirt jacket over the top. His trainers were black. His hair was still the same as always, green and in a big clump on his head, but still managed to shine, I wonder what he does to his to make it shine like that, I wonder why the heck it is green of all colours.

    "Drew?" I replied "Hi Drew, I guess you're entering this contest too?" I asked.
    "Hey May" Drew greeted. "Well I guess, I'll have to give you points for getting slightly smarter but you're still wrong, once again. I am just here, passing by onto the next contest. This is easy competition, nothing worth my time" he said confidently "I have already got my first ribbon, got it on my first try you know" Drew bragged with a smirk facing me as he flipped his hair; then I started getting the feelings of butterflies roaming around inside me. My heart was racing at a million miles. I liked it when he smiled at me, but I was a weird feeling but I liked it. I felt blush creeping onto my face, I tried to push it back, hoping he would see.

    "Oh crap. He has already got a ribbon and I don't. Man if he finds out I don't I wont hear the end of it from him" I was prepared for what might happen.
    "So I guess that means you're here for the contest. You got Any ribbons yet?" asked Drew.
    "Yea, I am here for the contest. And no I haven't got any ribbons" I replied, I basically the last bit quieter and mumbling it, hoping he wouldn’t hear. Unfortunately he heard. Damn his perfect hearing.

    "So you haven't got a ribbon here eh? Drew asked.
    "Here it comes an insult, teasing, something that involves it hurting the heart" I thought a bit scared.
    "Well then I wish you the best of luck for the contest" commented Drew. I was dumbfounded, "WHAT!! No teasing, no comments, no rude remarks? Okay who are you and what have you done with the real Drew" she thought "He is actually being nice"
    "Thanks Drew" I said nicely.
    "Just out of curiosity, do you know what the rules are for this contest?" Drew asked with a smirk.
    "Of course I do, I read them before entering on my way here" I retailed. "Yup here it comes" I knew where he was trying to go with this. This time I would beat him.

    "Okay, name me a few of the rules" Drew suggested with the smirk still on his face.
    "Fine Grass, Bug and Poison pokemon are the only pokemon allowed in this contest, anyone can enter as long as they have already been registered and you can if you want to switch pokemon during preliminaries and secondary parts of the contest". I said proudly. I had just proved to Drew that I was just as smart as the next person.

    "Well done May, you're smarter then what I give you credit for" said Drew in an insulting tone.

    He thinks I am dumb? Why that little jerk, how I would like to smack him in the head for that.


    "Yea, yea whatever Drew, if you'll excuse me I have to go get signed up for the contest and heal my pokemon up. I have wasted enough time already" May said as she turned towards Joy to get registered for the pokemon contest and heal up her pokemon.

    Nurse Joy wasn't that busy today so May didn't have to wait long for Joy to come back with her pokemon.
    "They're all alright and ready for you to pick up" Joy said handing May her pokemon.
    "Thanks Nurse Joy" May said as she left the pokemon centre to go train some more. She walked to an open field to train, unfortunately, before she was able to do any training Drew had come up to her and started talking to her.


    I saw her earlier today. She was wearing a new outfit. One that I think looks rather cute on her. This outfit suits her better then her last outfit. She looks really cute in that outfit but I would never tell her that.

    I found May again later that morning, she was on some big grass field, looked like she was either starting to train for the contest or just finished training for the contest, that or she was in between, doing her entire routine from the point she would release her pokemon. I start walking up to her.
    "Well, hello May, I assume you have been practicing for the contest coming up, after all you probably need it, seeing as your coordinating skills aren't that greatest. But I will have to admit you are getting smarter, I mean you look like you are actually training for once" I started off, I couldn't help myself it is just so much fun to tease her and see her reaction, it is always so cute when she gets mad.
    "Wha??!" May turned around quickly and faced me. She looked a bit amazed to see me here.

    He just came out of the blue, up to me. I was ****** off that he insulted my coordinating skills again; as soon as he made that last comment I hit on the head.
    "OWW!" he whined.
    "What are you doing here?" I asked, I was kind of amazed to see him here out of all places; I tried to pick a place that was pretty quiet and hoped no one knew about it. I guess I was wrong.
    "Just walking around" He replied smoothly, it looked like he had planned that reply.
    "So what pokemon are you using for the contest? Beautifly or Bulbasaur?" Drew asked "It has to be one of the two you know, since those are your only choices". He finished.
    "Why do you want to know?" I asked. Was he insulting me or not? I couldn't tell. Damn him.
    "I am just curious" he simply replied.
    "Well if you're curious, about which pokemon I will use for the contest, you will just have to wait" I said snobby and with that I left to find another training spot where hopefully people wouldn't go.

    In my heart, I didn't want to leave, but if I stayed he would have said something else to annoy me. Plus it would keep him around until the contest, which I was happy about. I don't like him though. It would just be someone to cheer me on.

    END POV.

    Practice, practice, practice! That was all May did for the final weeks before the contest. May and Chikorita were in perfect sync. They had timing, combo moves, routine, attacks, everything ready for the contest.


    It was finally the day of the contest. The crowds were in big masses as the beginning of the Azalea Town contest began. The sun was hot today; it shinned brightly down onto the contest arena. The arena was big.

    "Welcome one and all to the Azalea Town Pokemon contest" greeted the MC Vivian. She wore her usual attire, a pink skirt that went to her knees, a bright red blouse and on her feet were red heeled slippers. On her hands were white gloves and around her neck she wore a black necklace. (A/N: It has been a while since I have seen Vivian, so this is just her outfit from what I remember) Her orange hair flowed on either side of her face, at the ends of her hair it seemed to curl.

    "Today the contestants will be competing for a chance to enter the Johto grand festival and this ribbon" she continued as she pointed up to the screen which showed an enlarged image of the ribbon prize. It was like most other ones. It was tied in a bow and had a pin in the middle in the shape of a leaf that shined gold. The ribbon was coloured brightly with green lace around the edges and every other colour of the rainbow mixed together in straight lines.

    "In this contest, coordinators will only be allowed to use Grass, Bug or Poison type pokemon in their routine. During the change from Preliminary to Secondary stages, coordinators are allowed to switch pokemon between each round. But do not have to.
    And now, let's meet out hard working judges! Rauk Contesta, head judge,

    "Hi, I hope to see some amazing performances today" Rauk said as he was introduced, the pokemon fan club and contest director; Rauk was wearing his red suit, his black hair was combed back and on his red top suit, a pink ribbon was pined on;

    "Mr. Sasuko, head of the pokemon fan club" Vivian continued.

    "Happy to be here" He said,

    "And finally Azalea Town's very own Nurse Joy"

    "Thank you everyone. It is an honour to be here" said Nurse Joy finally.

    "Now if you the audience is ready, and the judges are ready, I'd like to get this show underway" Vivian concluded.

    "First up, is a first time coordinator from Pallet town, Sam (A/N: made up name), so without further ado, give it up for Sam" Vivian introduced.

    The crowd cheered wildly as Sam came out on stage.
    "Sunflora, Go!!" Sam cried as he threw out his pokemon.
    "Suunnnflorra" the Sunflora cried slowly, as it came out of its pokeball. It had a sun flowered shaped body. The head was a pale yellow while the petals around its head were a much brighter yellow. The rest of its body was green. It had big leaves on either side of its body, which appeared to be its arms and two paw like feet, which were also green.
    "Alright Sunflora, Sunny day, then Leech seed" Sam commanded.

    Sunflora obeyed. The stadium had suddenly become brighter as Sunflora started Sunny day, it was really hard to see. Then all that was viewable was the shots of bullet seed being fired everywhere. When Sunny day had finally ceased all you could see way Sunflora standing in the middle of the battle field, in a simple pose, while its trainer was behind it. (A/N: this probably sounds better then it actually would turn out)
    "Wow! That was amazing" cheered Vivian "Lets see what our Judges thought" she said as she pointed to the Judges.

    "Nicely done for a first time coordinator" commented Rauk Contesta.
    "Remarkable" complemented Mr. Susuko.
    "Well done for a first time performing" said Nurse Joy.

    "Let's see his scores now" Vivian said trying to move everything on.
    7.6, 7.5, 7.8 were shown on each of the judge's screens.
    "Well done Sam, that gives you a total of 22.9, a great way to start things off" congratulated Vivian.

    There were a couple more entries before May's turn finally arrived. There were tones of different Grass, Bug and Poison type pokemon being displayed. There were Butterfree, Beedrill, Oddish, Bellossom, Gloom, an amazing range of pokemon.
    Finally it was May's turn!


    Finally it was May's turn. I had been very curious for some reason to learn what pokemon she was using and what her routine would be like. I don't know why I just wanted to see her.

    The competition wasn't too tough from what I could see. There were a lot of basic and common routines, which had been most likely performed before. May was ready. I could just see her at the entrance to the stage. She looked a bit nervous, with all that shakiness. She seems to get nervous with every contest.

    "Now, let's welcome contestant number 18, May from Petalburg City" Vivian introduced. May entered the arena; her nerves still seemed to be with her, just not as much, she had calmed down dramatically.
    "When you are ready May, begin" Vivian said to May.

    "Alright" May breathed in and out and got out her pokeball. "Chikorita, take the stage!!!" she cried as she threw the pokeball.
    I, personally, didn't expect that. I thought she would have used either Bulbasaur or Beautifly.

    The Chikorita came out of the ball in a powerful, yet some how cute pose. But this Chikorita seemed different. Either May, which I highly doubt, coloured Chikorita body with some sort of paint type thing or this Chikorita was a shiny pokemon. It was a more yellowish, tanned colour. Rather rare pokemon. May was pretty lucky; I guess that's why she didn't want to show me. It made things much more interesting. I like it.

    "Wow look at the different colour of this Chikorita, it is really quite amazing" commented Vivian. May started her routine.
    "Chikorita, Razor leaf and then follow it up with poison powder!" May commanded with amazing confidence, her nerves were gone.
    Chikorita nodded with a smile and obeyed its orders. "Chi" The razor leaves came up to the sky hitting each other causing little explosions above Chikorita. The leaves fell into a variety of patterns, but then the leaf remains were engulfed by the poison powder, making a mixture of pink and green sparkles.
    "Now, Chikorita, use Solar beam" May said, proudly.
    "CHIKAAAA!!!" Chikorita screamed.
    It fired the solar beam right through the green and pink sparkles but still maintained a high level of balance and grace. It blinded everything in sight. It was kind of hard to see for a couple of minutes. This tiny Chikorita used a grass pokemon's most powerful attack, this was one pokemon I was not about to get angry.

    "Now, Chikorita finish it up with Synthesis" May commanded with a triumphant pose.
    The light from solar beam finally faded away, all that was viewable was the Chikorita glowing with a few sparkles around it with its eyes closed.
    "What an amazing appeal!" Vivian was ecstatic and amazed at the show May and Chikorita produced. "Let's see what our judges thought" Vivian said facing towards the judges.

    "An amazing display of light and colour, well done" complemented Rauk Contesta.
    "That’s remarkable" commented Mr. Sasuko.
    "Amazing" finished Nurse Joy.
    The scores were shown on the judge's panels.
    9.9, 9.8 and 9.9 were May's scores pretty good, but she didn't look too pleased. Her total was 29.5
    "There you go, 29.5 the highest score yet, and with only 2 contestants left lets continue. Please come out Jessica". (A/N: another random name, has nothing to do with my friend Jessica) Vivian said enthusiastically.



    "Well done Chikorita, you did great" I complemented while hugging Chikorita walking back to the coordinators room.

    Slowly I reach the entrance to the coordinators room. I enter and look around for a bit when I see Drew there. Chikorita was still in my arms as I walk up to Drew; well actually it was him walking up to me as I took my seat.

    "So, what didn't you like about your performance? It seemed pretty good to me" Drew started off. He just complemented me did he know that?
    How did he know I wasn't too happy with my score anyway? I didn't look unhappy, did I? Well either way, I didn't want him to think or know that, he'd think I was a sad sap or something.

    "What are you talking about? I loved Chikorita and my performance. It went exactly as planned" I insisted while waving my hands around everywhere.
    "That's what it didn't look like from where I was" Drew argued.
    "Then you must have been pretty far away, I was happy with it" I replied. I didn't mean to use the word 'was', but it just slipped out, it was supposed to be 'am', great now my cover is kind of ruined, if he realizes, that is.
    "Was happy?" Drew questioned, damn he noticed, DAMN!
    "Wha?" I acted stupidly for that one second "Oh, I was meant to say am, whoops" I insisted.
    "Right, of course you did" Drew teased. But, it seemed he wanted to drop it, maybe I looked a bit worried for one second, he just continued "So when and where did you get this Chikorita?" he asked pointing to Chikorita who was now sleeping in my arms.

    "A while back, umm….I think it was in err…Cherrygrove area" I was stuttering trying to remember where I got Chikorita from.
    "That must have been unusual, Chikorita from what I had learnt, don't live in those areas" said Drew in an inspective voice.
    "Yea it is I guess I was just really lucky" I said. We must have been talking for a while because when we were talking, the last two coordinators were finished and they were announcing who made it into the secondary round. I was in, being showed first. That made me happy. I was kind of nervous I wouldn't make it, but then again, I did have the highest score.

    "Yes! I made it in" I cheered, with a side of relief in my voice. I guess I moved a bit much or something because Chikorita woke up from its little nap.
    "Whoops sorry Chikorita" I said apologizing to Chikorita "But you have to go back into your pokeball now, we are about to battle." I told Chikorita grabbing out its pokeball. "Return" I commanded as Chikorita got absorbed from my lap into the pokeball by the red laser.

    "Would May and John please come out to the 1st stage" Vivian asked and sort of commanded.
    I walk out quickly, but before I left the door, I turned around to Drew and made a victory sign. Then I continued down the hallway to the battle field. When I got there John was already there, ready for our battle. I quickly got to my side of the field.
    John appeared to be some sort of bug catcher; he had a simple white singlet shirt on with beige shorts and a straw woven hat, finished off with pretty plain sandals.
    Now that you are ready, let's get the 5 minutes up on the clock and begin" announced Vivian, and the clock started.

    "Let's go Chikorita!" May cried throwing Chikorita's pokeball.
    Chikorita instantly came up in a fierce and ready pose.
    "Go Ledyba" cried John. A ladybug pokemon appeared out of the pokeball. It was pretty small flying just above its trainer. The majority of its body was and orange-red colour. The backs of its wings were black dots. It had 6 legs that ended with white hands/paws at the end of each one and the antennae were black.
    "Ba" Ledyba yelled proudly. It didn't seem to strong, looked like something the trainer just picked up at a local forest on the way here.
    "Chikorita, Razor leaf, Go, make it swarm around Ledyba" I commanded.
    Instantly Chikorita obeyed letting us have the first move. The leaves went all around Ledyba, tangling it and making it confused.
    "Now poison powder Chikorita" I was still in control.
    Chikorita made its move. The pink dust covered Ledyba, it had nowhere to go, and it was now struggling to move, yet still the trainer hadn't moved. It was time to finish it up.
    "Chikorita use tackle!" I said being my final command. Chikorita rammed right into Ledyba, it was knocked out. The judges had the x's on their screens. Ledyba was not allowed to continue.

    "With a lot of time to spare, May shall move onto the 2nd stage" Vivian said as John and I walked off stage. The trainer obviously had no experience before, he was probably getting by on luck, I thought.
    I was glad Drew didn't come up with me after this round, I didn't want that right now, I was concentrating on who was now battling, because the winner would be the one I verse in the finals.
    The match was over quick like mine, the winner was a girl called Annie and her Scyther. This would be a much harder match then my first one. I walked to the final stage ready to claim my first victory in Johto.
    "Now with the coordinators ready, begin" was all Vivian said.


    "Go, Chikorita" May yelled. Chikorita immediately came out as soon as May threw its pokeball.
    "Let's do it Scyther!" Annie said proudly, throwing the pokeball.
    The Scyther came out; it was green for head to toe. It had scythes for hands, and the wings looked sharp. The body was covered with plate like armor and it was ready.
    "Scy!!" it cried in a smooth voice.
    I decided to begin things once again.
    "Chikorita use Vine whip and hold down Scyther's blades. The vines came out and grabbed Scyther instantly, it wasn't prepared.
    "Now Chikorita, use Razor leaf and Poison powder together" I said
    The leaves and powder came down on Scyther hard. It could escape or move from what I could see, it was hit.
    "Scyther use Slash to get out of those vines" Annie commanded quickly.
    Scyther cut through the vines and was released. It was still weak but was ready for anything. A small amount of points were lost from Annie's score.


    "Scyther, use swords dance and then Wing attack" cried Annie. I knew what Annie was up to, grass pokemon were weak against flying type attacks plus she had powered her pokemon's attack power up with Swords dance, if it hit, it would be super effective and take out most of my points and probably Chikorita too; I wasn't going to fall for it.

    "Nice combination move" noted Contesta.

    "Chikorita, use double team" I said in response to the command. Instantly there were abundant of copies or Chikorita circling around Scyther, so it became a slight confused but it went and kept looking around. This made Annie's points drop continually until she found the right one.

    "Attack every one of them Scyther with your wing attack and quick attack" cried Annie fiercely, she wasn't going down with out a fight! Scyther flew around in a circle hitting each of the copies of Chikorita. Eventually it got to the real one. My points dropped a bit, but I was still in the lead and with 3 minutes left, I was fairly safe but to be on the safe side I was going to continue this fight.

    Damn. "Chikorita, are you alright to keep going" I was worried about that last attack, there could have been serious damage done to Chikorita. But Chikorita just got up confidently up with a smile quickly.

    "Chika!" Chikorita was still in this fight as much as I still was.
    "Good, now use Synthesis" I said caring about Chikorita's remaining strength.
    Chikorita started glowing. It was healing from previous damage. It was done Chikorita was back up to full health. Annie's points took a small fall for that move. Two minutes left! That would give Chikorita plenty of time to produce solar beam but in this case it would only be used as a last result, it wouldn't affect Scyther much anyway.
    "Sunny day Chikorita, then go into body slam" I said wanting to get this finished quickly.
    "Chika!" it knew what was happening.
    Sunny day was produced making it almost blinding to everything. Scyther couldn't see for a moment which gave Chikorita the perfect chance to attack. It hit on the mark. Scyther was out. The x's appeared on the judge's panels. Chikorita and I had won.
    I took a while to sink in but finally it registered.
    "Yay. We won Chikorita, you were amazing" I was still very amazed.
    Chikorita just came up to me and accidentally body slammed me. I caught Chikorita, but ended up falling on the ground from that attack.
    "Congrats May" said Annie, "You put up a good fight" she congratulated.
    "You too, for a moment I thought I was gone" I returned.



    "Congratulations May, you are this year's Azalea Town contest winner. I hand, the Azalea Town ribbon to you and your pokemon, May. Congratulations" finished Vivian as she handed May the ribbon.
    "Alright, I won a ribbon" May cried as she made her winning pose with Chikorita right beside her just as happy as its trainer.


    May returned Chikorita to its pokeball and made her way backstage to pack up belongings and get out of there. No one was there to congratulate her. Not even Drew. She looked really disappointed but still held her head high and packed her things up silently. A single tear fell. She missed being greeted by someone after she had claimed victory, now not even her friends were there. She really wanted her friends to be there, but she knew that would never happen they were basically on the other side of the world. She missed her friends.

    Drew quietly walked backstage and saw May packing up quietly without a smile on her face. He saw a tear coming down her face. May looked really upset. Drew casually walked up to May.


    I came backstage to congratulate her, but it took a while wit all the fans clinging to me like wet, soggy clothing. It wasn't the best feeling ever I tell you. As I walk in I see May just there, alone without her friends, sad, she looked like she was on the verge of crying. "Where are her friends?" I wondered.

    They were usually there right by her side, congratulating her right after her battles. They should be there, after she had just won. Come to think of it I hadn't seen them all this past few weeks when I saw May.

    No one else was in the coordinators room, I guess they packed up quickly and left.

    "What, so you just claimed victory and you aren't happy with it?" I asked her.
    "Huh?" she just looked up at me with a blank and confused look on her face, rather cute.
    "What are you taking about? I was ecstatic" May said trying to hide the fact she had a tear falling
    "Right, whatever" I didn't have the urge to aggravate her or anything it was weird, I love doing that. I had an urge for some reason to wipe away that tear and hold her face in my palm. So that is what I did. I reached over to her face and touched her delicate skin and wiped away the tear.
    "You look better happy, what's wrong?" I ask still holding her face.
    "Nothing, nothing at all" she stuttered, she looked like she was going to move her face away but didn't, we were getting closer. I could feel her breathe against my skin.
    "So why are you here anyway?" she said interrupting the moment. Damn, I could have kissed her. DAMN! I take my hand off her and bring it down.
    "So where are your friends? Aren't they usually here with you?" I asked, looking into her eyes; I didn't want to hurt her I was just curious, but it seemed to remind her why she was sad. Her little smile was replaced with a sad look.

    "Oh, they are in the battle region, I don't know what it is called though, I didn't want to go, so I came here, alone" she said quietly as she stood up, barely looking me in the eye.

    "Oh" was all I could say. May had no one here, she was alone, and that is probably why she was upset.
    May then suddenly left. No byes or anything. Not even turning for a smile. What I had asked must have somewhat hurt, she missed her friends, it looked like she missed traveling with someone, she didn't look like she wanted to be alone.

    I hated seeing her sad, I don't like her, I just like seeing people unhappy. I don't like seeing people I care for unhappy. I wanted to help, so I did the only thing I thought I could. It would benefit me any way, at least she would be happy again, at least a little.



    May sat outside of the pokemon centre on one of the trees, thinking about her friends. She sat out there alone, for a while. She really did miss her friends; she was kind of regretting going to Johto alone. It was time to see how they were going; she needed to ease her mind.


    I decided to call Max and my friends to tell them about what has happened recently. They would never believe it, especially about Chikorita. So I immediately went to the pokemon centre where they have video phones. The video phones were green, and all lined up on a wall in the pokemon centre. There was the actual phone bit, and then a screen so you could see who you were to speaking to. There were buttons for the numbers like any normal phone and it was pretty big.

    "Ring, ring, ring, ring…" I was calling them. Finally someone answered it was Max.
    "Hey Max" I greeted first.
    "MAY!" Max basically screamed into the phone. "How have you been? Won any contests yet? Got any new pokemon?" He asked.

    "Alright, from the top, I have been good, yes I just won the Azalea Town contest and yes I have caught a new pokemon. How have you and the rest been?" I answered and quickly threw a question at him.
    "Ash, Misty Brock, come over here May's on the phone" Max cried, to the rest of them. Ash, Misty and Brock rushed over the phone and greeted me.
    "HI!" the cried in unison.
    "Hi guys, I have missed you all so much" I tell them
    "How you been? Have you won any contests there? Caught any new pokemon?" They had just attacked me with the same questioned Max had just asked me. I sweat dropped.
    "Now like I said to Max, I am good, yes I have won a contest, the Azalea Town one, and yes I caught a new pokemon, now please, answer my question, how have you guys been?" I repeated.
    "We have all been good" they all said together, "there is always a battle, it's all so fun, heaps of pokemon, so many people, battles, pokemon" Ash said excited. He was crazy. I sweat drop.
    "What pokemon did you catch? Can we see it?" Max was eager to see my new pokemon.
    "Yea sure" I said and got out Chikorita's pokeball. "Chikorita, come on out" I yelled proudly.
    "Chika" Chikorita was happy to be let out and sat on my lap.
    "Whoa, look at the colours of your Chikorita May, you're so lucky" Max complemented.
    "Yea I know, I was pretty lucky" I said
    "Can we see your ribbon?" asked Misty
    "Yup, sure can" I said proudly and got out the ribbon.
    "Congratulations May, your first contest in Johto and you won" Brock said.
    "Thanks" I said back, I was happy to talk to my friends again.
    "We had better go May, it is getting late here, and we have got to get ready for tomorrow and the battles to come" Ash was eager to battle again.
    "Yea, it's getting late here too, good night" I finished.
    "Night" they said together. Then the video phone turned off and I walked up the stair case to my room I rented at the pokemon centre.



    May had woken up around 8 am and started getting ready for the day ahead. She had a shower and got changed. She cleaned up her room she stayed in, then left the room and gave the key to the room to the always present Nurse Joy.
    "Thanks, for staying the night, and I hope you go well with your journey" Joy said nicely.

    The path lead straight out of Azalea and right out to Ilex forest, which would lead to Goldernrod City, according to her pokenav. May was on the outskirts of the town and was onto the next town Goldenrod City when someone grabbed her arm. May immediately turned around prepared to hurt who ever it was.
    "THWACK!" she hit the person over the head without even knowing who it was.


    "Owww! What the heck was that for?" I yelled at her.
    "Drew? What the? What are you doing here?" May asked shocked.
    "Good to see you to May" I sad sarcastically "Do you always greet some one by thwacking them over the heads? That would explain why your friends aren't here" I know that was a little harsh, but I was being sarcastic.

    "Didn't you listen to me yesterday, when I told you why my friends weren't here, they are at the battle region, and since I didn't want to I came here" May had snapped. "Now answer my question, what are you doing here? Oh and why'd you grab my arm? You could have just called my name" May continued

    "Ok I am here since I am here, you can't prevent that and I grabbed your arm because I was trying to get your attention, I was calling you for ages but you didn't seem to notice, you are just oblivious to your surroundings aren't you?" I stated the obvious.
    "Ok, so why were you calling me?" May asked
    "Because I was wondering if you wanted to travel with me?" I answered, she looked happy at that, but then a "what do you want" look appeared on your face.
    I answered that question before she even asked it. "I want nothing, it just seems like you need some one to travel with, and that’s all"



    He had just asked e if I wanted to travel with him, I really wanted to, because then I wouldn't be alone. It was like if, he answered my prayers. But then I thought, this was Drew, he didn't ask something like that unless he wanted something in return, or he would get something out of it. I had nothing to offer. I gave him a "what do you want?" look. I didn't even say anything, but he still answered my question, like he was reading my mind.

    He simply said "I want nothing, it just seems like you need some one to travel with, that’s all". I didn't expect that answer. I did want to travel with him, but then my life would be an open book, this I didn't exactly mind, but some things in my life I didn't want people to know about. But I really want to go with Drew, I don't want to travel alone any more, I don't like it.


    Wootness a cliffy not a good one, but it is still techniquelly I cliffy..I think ^^;

    Chapter 3- May, 16 and 18 part 1

    OK people, 2 parts to this chapter, so don't think it is short or anything. I couldn't fit the whole chapter into one, so I had to cut it in half. ^^;
    Capter 3, part 1


    Drew, he just asked me out of no where, if I would like to travel with him. I think we must have been standing there for a while. My heart was racing, I really want to go. My mind was racing, just like my heart, should I accept or not?

    This was a tough decision on my part, Drew on the other hand, was just standing there casually with his eyes closed, waiting for my answer like he had just asked something really simple.

    "I accept, but if you do expect something out of this, don't! I have nothing to give" I said laying out the expectations to him. Drew just nodded then started walking.
    "We have wasted enough time already, let's go please" he said while still walking. I just smiled and followed him without saying a word.

    We, together, not alone, would be together for a while, this was something, that I definitely didn't want my friends or family to learn about, not yet any way. I knew their reaction wouldn't be all good. We set off to Goldernrod City for the next contest. We were even in ribbons; he had nothing to tease me about. Not yet anyway, this is one aspect of our lives, I want to stay the same, always.


    Drew was silent through the whole trip while leaving Azalea town, I didn't mind it; it was just really weird. Then again what was there to talk about? I am still baffled to why he asked me to travel with him in the first place.

    When I left for Johto region, I didn't have a lot of money, or anything valuable. I guess, he must think I am rich or something to travel with me, I mean why else would he travel with me? He could have chosen anyone else in this world, but why me? I mean he has so fan girls to choose from, most a better looking then I am, I don't get why he would travel with ME!


    May was seriously beginning to doubt herself. She had to admit, he was cute, but that was the limit to her infatuation with him. It was nothing more then that. They were friends, and yet they argued more then a married couple, well when they would meet each other anyway. Drew was just the mystery that would never allow it to be solved. May had become lost in her thoughts, about Drew. She had to get him off her mind. She shook her head in her mind. That was enough.

    May needed a new routine for the next contest in Goldernrod City. This contest was just a normal contest, any and all pokemon were accepted, and anyone and everyone could enter, as long as they had the Johto region contest pass that is.

    What to pokemon to use? May didn't want to use Chikorita; she needed to use a different pokemon. Blaziken would be a good choice; fire seems to win people over any day. But what moves to use? Blaziken knew a lot of moves; it was choosing the right ones, which was the problem, and when to use the moves as well.

    Well she could start with a swift and ember combination, which would make the stars from swift light up to a bright orange, then she could use Sky Upper Cut to hit every single one of the bright red stars which would probably make them explode, with amazing colours and heat, and then finish it off with an over heat spin off. Yea, that would work perfectly; she had never tried those combinations of moves before. Blaziken would know what to do; it is a smart pokemon after all. But it was still rather cliché I mean, it had been performed before, but she didn't really care, she needed a routine.

    "May" Drew was calling her.
    "May?" Drew was still calling her
    "MAY!" Drew shouted and slapped her lightly. That brought her back into reality.
    "Yea? What?" May asked clueless, and unaware she got hit by Drew. (A/N: hopeless, pathetic girl ;p )
    "I have been calling you for at least 5 minutes. What are you deaf? You have really got to learn to take notice of your surroundings, what if team rocket or something came out of no where and attacked?" Drew was annoyed
    "Sorry, I was just thinking" May apologized.

    "Yea, whatever, we are stopping for a break, and we would have stopped a while ago, but some one just kept walking" Drew said matter-of-factly pointing to May.
    "Ok" May said quietly, she slowly drifted back into her mind, with her eyes closed.


    Man, that girl, I swear, she will get kidnapped one day without even realizing it one day. She was really thinking about something hard, I must have called her at least ten times before she came back to reality. I guess she is lucky I am here, other wise I bet she would have fallen off a cliff. Though I wonder what she was thinking about.

    She has her eyes closed right now, probably thinking about whatever she was thinking about before. There have been slight breezes, blowing up her hair, she looks really peaceful. It is like she is actually asleep. She looks really cute like that though.


    Drew was crushing on May, even though he would never admit that. Drew wanted to get on the road again. He stood up and walked over to May. He guessed that his efforts to bring her back out of her mind would take a while, again!

    "Hey, May, it is time to get going again" Drew said over her.
    "Huh? Yea whatever" May said as she got up and started walking again.
    Drew was left there amazed, she got up so quickly and without any complaints.


    We had stopped for a bit. I think it must have only been ten minutes, that's all it felt like. Drew was really silent, but I could feel him watching over me, I don't know why, call it a sixth sense. He was just constantly watching over me like I was either a dead body or a work of art, either way that is a bit creepy.

    Suddenly Drew came over to me and told me it was time to get moving. I was upset that it was such a short break; we had been walking for so long already. I was tired, but I just got up and continued walking. There was no use to complaining, it would just wear me out.

    I knew where to go, which was a change from usual. We were on our way to Ilex forest. I got out my pokenav for a second to check how long there was to Ilex forest. "Great, at least another hundred miles to go" I thought sarcastically. Another hundred miles of silence, just what I need. Oh well, I was grateful that Drew offered me to come along with, I prefer to travel with someone I know then alone.



    May and Drew had finally made it to Ilex forest. Well they had sort of made it; there were still a couple of miles to go. It was late afternoon, and they were still walking. May was getting really tired. Her feet felt like there were blisters on blisters, if that was even possible, but she knew she didn't. She would have collapsed at any given moment if she wasn't careful. Then there was Drew, he was just walking along without any sign of fatigue, pain, tiredness, it was a casual stroll for him. His eyes closed. He knew they should stop, but he was waiting for May to ask for a break of some sort, but she never did. This really amazed Drew.


    Ok so maybe it is time to stop for a bit, May, even though she won't admit it, looks really tired, and in a lot of pain. I wouldn't understand how a person who has been traveling for two years could be in pain, but what are you going to do, she is weak. The forest was just a couple of miles in front of us and it was getting dark, so I guess it was time to stop, after all I was basically in charge.

    "May, we are stopping here" I announce. At that second I swear I saw a flicker of gratefulness in her eyes.
    "Yea whatever" she said casually, starting to sit down. We started up a fire and stayed sitting for a while. Not to far off, a forest seemed to already be building up the closer we got. The ground appeared soft and damp, probably because it rained a couple of days ago or something.
    Then May took off her black back pack and unzipped it. Then she took out some food. We appeared just outside the forest.
    "Here" May tossed my some sort of food packet, nothing fancy, it was in bar form. (A/N: you know like muesli bars and stuff like that) "It isn't the best food in the world, but seeing as you haven't got any food out for yourself, consider it dinner" May told me. She opened hers and ate it.
    I guess this was either what she was saving for later, or all she ate. I didn't know whether to eat it or not, seeing as it came from May, but since she was eating and not dying, yet, I would try it. I open the plastic wrapping around it, like as if I am opening up a Christmas present and look at it for a second. It was some sort of bar as the wrapping on the outside had shown. I take a bite out of it; it tasted like a whole meal, in this little bar. Well as the writing on the plastic wrapper had said, lamb flavour. Not to bad, it wasn't bad considering it was bar-shaped and processed. The flavour was artificial, but I wasn't too fussed, though I didn't expect May of all people to have this kind of food. (A/N: don't ask me where I came up with this, it was just what came into mind, space food :D )



    I guessed Drew had never eaten anything like this food bar before. He looked at it for quiet sometime before taking a bite out of it. This was all I had to offer, and it wasn't anything fancy, probably compared to what he has eaten anyway. This was the food I had eaten being in Johto, well what I was reduce to anyway. I do prefer cooked and hot meals but I can't cook or anything that is like that, so it was safest to have stuff like this instead.

    Then I get out my pokeballs and release my pokemon out of their pokeballs.
    "Hi guys" I said with a smile and handed them their food in simple bowls. My pokemon all made a cry together and started eating happily. I walk over to Drew and hand him some pokemon food.

    "Here give it to your pokemon, they should like it, Brock made it, not me, it's safe. Brock is a pretty good cook too" I convince him, since he was giving me a weird look. I walk over to my pokemon to make sure they are ok, and then I get out my red sleeping bag. I place my sleeping bad next the fire and wriggle my way into it. It was comfortable, and snuggly. The flannel inside rubbed against my skin, it was soft. My pillow was sewn into the sleeping bag.

    The moon had made its appearance for the night; it shone a bright white against the black sky. The stars weren’t as visible all the way down here, most of them covered by the clouds of the night.

    "Well aren't you going to give the food to your pokemon? If you aren't sure then take a bit yourself, it tastes pretty good. "I asked "And if that isn't enough proof for you look at my pokemon, they love it." I point out.
    "How suitable, you eat pokemon food, it really does suit you" Drew commented with a smirk. That really annoyed me.
    "You ungrateful little ---" I say clenching my fists and get out of my sleeping bag. "If you didn't want to give your pokemon food and let them starve you should have said so in the beginning." I say walking over to him and attempt to take away the food when he grabs my arm.
    "I didn't say I didn't want to give it my pokemon, I just made I comment saying that you should continue eating pokemon food" he returned.
    "And I didn't say that ate pokemon food, I just said it tasted good" I said matter-of-factly.
    "If you said it tasted good that means you have tasted it, which means you ate it" Drew argued. (A/N: note, Drew still has a hold of May's arm)

    "I say it tastes good because I have heard people say it tastes good, and because my pokemon love it" I say back. "Look, this bicker is pointless; give your pokemon the food if you wish. It is not my decision" I finish, I take back my arm and I walk off back to my sleeping bag.
    "Fine" Drew said.
    I get back into my sleeping bag, and fall asleep with my back facing Drew.


    There were no sounds, nothing it was quiet, peaceful. The sun was out again and shining down on the world, greeting us at the beginning of the new day. My pokemon were sleeping next to me all cuddled up keeping me warm. The fire we had set alight last night was out and burnt down to mere ashes of its former self. The morning dew dripped off the random leaves and made tiny splashes on the ground near the trunks of trees.

    I look over to see Drew sleeping there, with his pokemon out, all sleeping around him and on him, in Roselia's case. He wasn't much of a mess, his hair was still perfect as always…Not like I think it is perfect but anyway, it was a rather cute scene. Drew there, just peacefully sleeping. I guess he is not much of an early bird, which explains why he likes to keep moving through the day, I guess…

    "Well take this time to your advantage and go practice your contest moves" I thought, trying to be as quiet as I possible could; getting out of my sleeping bag. I made little, to no noise getting out. Silently I walk over to my pokemon and wake them up. I shook them a little and then they woke up instantly but slowly.

    "Blaziken, Wartortle, Chikorita; we are going to go out for a while and train ok, while he is asleep" I whisper looking over to Drew. They all nod and get up. Quietly we all slither out of the area we were sleeping in and go a bit further, where I saw a lake (A/N: I guess you could call it a lake, lakes are just big masses of water right? Anyway it was like a pond only much bigger, if you get my drift, like that episode with that massive Claydol and stone pokeball) yesterday, when Drew and I were walking. According to my pokenav we weren’t far away anyway.

    My pokemon and I were running out of our camping area back down the dirt path we traveled the previous day. Going through a random amount of trees, which indicated the forest grew rather near.


    The area I started training was like a remote spot that was slightly more into the forest but was still close to the path we took. The most of the lake was in surrounded by forest. There were some plants in the lake but not many, most were on the edge of the riverbank (A/N: if it's a lake do you call it a lake bank? XD; ) There wasn't any pokemon around at the time, I guess, most of them were still in their nests sleeping.
    "Blaziken, I am going to start off with you, return". I told Blaziken, and then zapped it back into its pokeball. I wanted to start from the very beginning, makes the routine much easier.
    "Alright, Blaziken, take the stage" I say throwing Blaziken out of its pokeball, releasing it once again. Blaziken came out of the pokeball lunging forward and then doing a somersault in the air. Then it landed on its feet in a star-like position.
    "Blaze" was all it said.
    "Alright, Blaziken, start off with swift and ember, then go into a spin" I instructed and Blaziken obeyed its orders. Blaziken added its own move into the routine and jumped into the air. Stars and embers were shot from Blaziken in all directions, making the stars shine a bright orange glow.
    "Good, now finish up with Sky Upper Cut and hit all the stars" I said as my last order for the routine. Blaziken's fist glowed brightly as it powered up for a Sky Upper Cut, then it spun around and attacked all the stars making them explode into sparkles every where. (A/N: If you haven't noticed, I am obsessed with sparkles) Blaziken came back onto the ground and stood in one spot silently.
    "Excellent Blaziken, you did an excellent job" I ran up and hugged my Blaze pokemon, its feathers felt soft and warm against my face. Blaziken appeared happy too. Smiling down on me as I hugged it. I let go of Blaziken and it sat over where Chikorita and Wartortle were sitting.
    "Alright Wartortle, your up" I say to Wartortle returning it to its ball.
    "Lets go Wartortle" I yell throwing Wartortle's ball up higher than when I threw Blaziken ball.
    "Alright, Rapid Spin Wartortle, then go into bubble" I start off; I really hadn't planned what I was going to do with Wartortle, seeing as I was using Blaziken for my next contest. Either way we still needed the practice. Wartortle obeyed diligently. Coming out of its pokeball it immediately started with rapid spin and because it was still in its shell when it started bubble, bubbles started pouring out of Wartortle's shell at the sides where it puts its arms, legs and head. It was a floating shell with bubbles pouring out of it.
    "Ok now, use Hidden Power and then use Ice beam and freeze both attacks, and finish it up with a Hyper beam and Iron tail Combo" (A/N Yea, yea I know, more then for attacks, don't bother telling me) I said nervously, I wasn't sure Wartortle could pull that last command off.

    But Wartortle just proved me wrong. The hidden power circled around Wartortle's shell, because it was still in the shell and it was released. Wartortle then came out of its shell and blasted each bubble and the hidden power attack in one round. Wartortle was surrounded by a frozen hidden power attack and bubbles. It honestly just looked a bunch of ice balls in the middle of air, frozen in time, they weren't falling quick. Finishing it off Wartortle did the Hyper beam and Iron tail combination and blasted every single ice ball, but unfortunately, it was a bit much. The golden beam ended up blasting a bit more then expected, like the lake we were next too. "BOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!"

    Blaziken, Chikorita, Wartortle and I were surrounded with an invasion of black smoke and a slight bit of water everywhere. The smoke eventually cleared and I could see my pokemon all safe and ok.
    "Right! I think that is enough training for today" I sweat dropped. My pokemon just nod silently and we just sat for a bit to let ourselves dry off first.


    I don't know what time it was when I woke up but it must have been a bit late. The Sun was up; it was too bright to tell exactly how far up though. I take in my surroundings. All my pokemon are still with me, Roselia was still kind of on me, and the rest were just sleeping around me.
    I got up and looked over to where May was sleeping last night. May wasn't there. "O great, now where is she? It is not like there is any place to go around here" I thought still looking around for her.
    When I eventually wake, and bring my self back to my senses I realize her pokemon were gone. What the? Where the heck could she have gone to? She had better not have started walking without me, if I find her in the next town, I swear….I was annoyed. Her stuff was basically gone to, no sleeping bag or anything. "GAHHH! It is too early in the morning to have to deal with such things" I thought angrily.

    "BOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!" I just heard this large boom sound coming from further down the track we walked yesterday. My pokemon jolted right up. Alert at the loud sound that echoed through the forest. I tone of Pidgey and Rattata were trying to escape the area. This large bang had for some reason interested me and I ran off to find out what had caused it being followed by my pokemon.

    The smoke had sort of cleared when I got there. There was still a lot of smoke but just not as much as before. I could vaguely make out for characters, which for some reason looked familiar. When the smoke had cleared I could hear May's voice. She said something about training and the rest I couldn't hear.

    "At least she didn't leave, I did want her to stay" I thought relieved it wasn't anything else. "How in the world did she make that much noise, or smoke?" that question really puzzled me. I was going to find out.


    "Good too see you up and training May, I would have never picked you as one to train and caused a big eruption like you just did there, though" Drew told her.
    "Huh? Oh hey Drew, sleep well?" May asked as though she hadn't heard the insult being thrown at her.
    "Yea just fine" Drew replies "Just curious, how did you get all wet? And what was with all that smoke?" Drew asks, sitting down next to May.
    "Ummm….errr…..well you see, I was training with my pokemon, well Wartortle actually and it used a water gun, and accidentally sprayed me with it. And about the smoke….well….lets not get into it" stuttered May.
    "No…Do tell, I want to know" Drew grinned.
    "No, you'll live just fine without that information" May retailed
    "Yes, I want to know"
    "No, it isn't really that important"
    "Yes, please" Drew said in a real begging voice. May wasn't able to resist.

    "Fine" May had given in"
    "Youseeitstartedwithwartortleusinganattackthatendedupbeingabittoopowerfulanditblastedintothewaterandthenitcausedabigblackeruptionandyouknowtherest" rushed May hoping he wouldn't hear it.
    "Yes of course, now what was that whole thing in English, you know the language you usually use" he wanted to know the story.
    "I did use English" she retorted
    "Sure, it just didn't sound like English" Drew won. "Now do say that all again"
    "You see it started with Wartortle using an attack that ended up being a bit too powerful and it blasted into the water and then it caused a big black eruption and you know the rest" May slightly mumbled, with a slight tint of red on her cheeks.
    Drew started to laugh. "That was it, the big eruption? That was all?" Drew chuckled. "So what attack was it?" Drew asked.
    "Umm…some attack" May said casually.
    "Yea, I figured that much, what actual attack was it?" Drew asked again. May mumbled the answer. She didn't know her pokemon knew hyper beam all the time it happened suddenly one day when they were against Team Rocket plus, he would think of it as a joke, that or she couldn't control it.
    "I guess the reason you wont tell it because the attack was a really crappy one like bubble or water gun, or tackle, I can imagine most of those making a splash" Drew said mockingly, still wanted to know he just didn't show it.
    "Water gun would never be able to do that. It wasn't a crappy attack for your information, it was hy-" she was gong to finish her sentence cut she put she hands over her mouth, she realized what he was trying to do. "It was an attack that was much more powerful then water gun" she changed she sentence.
    "Which was?" trying to still get it out of May. May gave in.
    "Hyper beam. Whoa! Look at the time, we had better get going, the contest in Goldernrod isn't exactly going to wait for us you know" she said hastily trying to get off the subject, returned her pokemon to their pokeballs, then ran off into the direction of the campsite. Drew just ended up sweat dropping and followed May back after returning his own pokemon to their pokeballs.


    May took a long while to tell me what attack she used. Geez… Was it really that hard? May has got to learn to tell some one these things; after all she still needs to work with her pokemon to perfect hyper beam. But what do you expect, she is a weak coordinator, I was lying to myself, again. Then a brilliant idea came into my mind.

    Maybe I could help May and her pokemon with that attack, it would bring her closer to me.


    Drew was beginning to plot ways to get May to let him teach and perfect hyper beam with her pokemon, walking back to the campsite.


    I wish Wartortle and I could work on that better. We have been working on hyper beam for months now, and it still seems like we can't control it.


    May just got back to the campsite, ready to pack her things, but when she got there her things were already packed. "Oh yea, I packed it up before I left" May thought "Guess I should just wait until Drew comes back, maybe he has forgot about that other conversation by now" May was very hopeful. May decided since it would take longer to wait for Drew to pack up and then go that she may as well pack up his stuff to save time.

    Drew came back pretty quickly, considering he took his time.
    "Well go as soon as I finish packing up ok" Drew told May. Drew presumed May didn't hear because she immediately started walking off to Ilex forest.
    "May did you hear me, I have got to pack up my stuff first, just wait" Drew told May.
    "Pick up your bag and lets go, contests wait for no one" May said back and started walking off again.
    "Hey-" Drew stopped what he was saying because he looked over to his bag. There it was sitting there nicely, in all its green and black glory.
    "May must have packed it up for me" he said as he picked it up and walked off. He just smiled at her for a moment and continued on after May.
    "May, wait up" Drew whined as he ran up to May. Drew eventually caught up to May.
    "Hey May" Drew said walking slightly behind May
    After that May or Drew didn't talk. They continued walking all day through the Ilex forest. There was not a lot of light to tell if it was actually day or night, but from the slight glimpses of sunlight and the fact a lot of pokemon were awake, gave them the idea it was still day time. They didn't really stop for lunch, and they didn't really have any breakfast after the black smoke incident, so they were basically running on no energy. The night had almost come over them. It was becoming hard to walk for the two of them until one of them gave in to hunger.

    May fainted; falling down, smashing into the ground, causing her to wake up again. "Thud!!" she hadn't hit the ground too hard, so she was free of all bruises, fortunately. But it was enough to hurt, and made her weaker. Drew turned around to see May slowly getting off the ground.
    "Why don't we stop for today" Drew suggested holding her up with her arm over his shoulder. She just nodded and the both sat down under a couple of trees next to each other. (A/N: like there is anything else to sit under in a FOREST XD )
    Again like the previous night May unzipped her bag and got out the bar food contents.
    "Where does she get all of these?" Drew wondered as he received one for himself. Then May released her pokemon and gave them food while she ate hers. She gave Drew some pokemon food, and remained quiet for the rest of the night.

    Drew was quietly thinking of his next contest moves.
    "Maybe Absol, I haven't used him in a while. He is pretty good in the contests too" Drew thought "What attacks to use, I guess I can throw him a tone of rocks and ask him to use Slash, Rock Smash or another attack like that to hit the rocks, and then just end it off with a simple flash"
    "Well the moves will come to me" He gave up trying to think off some appropriate moves.
    "Hey Ma-" He was about to start talking to her again when he felt something lean on his shoulder. "Never mind" he said softly looking down at May with a smile. It was time to stop for the day. Drew remained in that position for the rest of the night leaning against the tree with May on him.

    Morning had come to the sleeping duo. The sun even though the trees didn't want it, shone through them and covered May and Drew with warmth and brightness. Drew was the first to wake up to the sun smiling down on them. Slowly getting up Drew felt something on him. He looked down to see May sleeping on his lap. Drew shook her lightly to wake her up.
    "Hey May time to get up and off" Drew said to her
    "Eh?" May slowly woke up to realize she was sleeping on Drew's lap. "SORRY!" her face was red as she jumped off Drew's lap, well her head any way. Drew giggled.
    "This time, since we are going to walk a bit more let's get something to eat first" Drew suggested.
    "Yea ok, what do you want?" May asked
    "Anymore of those bar things, they seem to fill us up a lot" Drew suggested.
    "Why have processed foods when we can have natural" May said getting up and walking over to a tree.
    "I am not eating leaves" Drew said matter-of-factly.
    "Not leaves, berries" May said holding out a handful of Pecha berries to Drew. "Here" Giving the pecha berries to him. Then turned around and grabbed some more for her to eat. (A/N: Just assume from somewhere here, May and Drew returned their pokemon, I don’t want to repeat myself constantly)
    "Thanks" Drew said after receiving the berries, and ate them. The berries were sweet and tender, with a few leaves on the stalks and pink in colour. There was an occasional white to very light pink dots on the berries skin among the pink.

    Drew and May sat under the tree the slept underneath the previous night and ate quietly. Both of them didn't know what to talk about, it stayed quiet until Drew started talking to break the silence.
    "So May, how long has your Wartortle known Hyper beam?" Drew asked.
    "Not long, I guess just as we left for Ash's house, after the battle frontier" May said (A/N: the series hasn't got that far yet, so I don't know what Ash is collecting the battle things for)"I don't really know, I didn't know Wartortle knew the attack, it was only until we faced another team of team rocket, and were losing badly that it used it, but after then it wasn't able to control it that well".
    "Oh ok" Drew paused for a moment, this was his chance to get her to like him "Well, ok, you can't control it well, I could help you if you like, my Flygon and Absol know it, but unlike your pokemon, they perfected it as soon as they learnt it, but what can you expect from pokemon who are owned by a weak coordinator" He couldn't help himself, he had to say that last bit.

    "Just when I thought he would lay off and be nice, he throws that at me" May was angered that once again he insulted her coordinating skills. "I am sure with a bit more practice Wartortle and I could perfect it, I don't need your help" May declined his offer.
    "Oh well, good luck trying to perfect it, but I doubt you will, and then you'll just come crawling back to me for help" Drew secretly knew she would eventually get it, just not yet.

    "Anyway, we have to get on our way to Goldernrod" Drew stated getting up from his place and ready to walk deeper into the Ilex forest.
    "What? No way, let me finish my berries first" May bolted up from her seat.
    "Yes way. I want to get going. Stay and eat if you wish, but I am going. Like you said contests wait for no one" Drew stated. May was shocked that Drew would just leave her there, alone, but then again, he didn't need her; she needed him. Even if she could travel by herself, train y herself, live by herself, May needed some one to hold it all together, to cheer her on and make her happy. She might loose that. She didn't want to. But she still wanted to finish her food. May decided to finish her food, if she didn't eat, and collapsed again it would be worse.
    "Fine, I stay you go; bye" May whispered and sat back down from where she rose to continue eating her berries.
    "See you later at the contest hall, that is, if you make it" Drew teased and turned his back on May as he waved his hand up in the air. May watched silently as Drew returned his pokemon to their pokeballs and made his escape from her, deeper into the green sea.
