Episode 1: Black Jack’s here…

This story is rated PG - PG13

Chapter 1:
There were two brothers walking their way from school. One of them was called Jack and another was called John. They were both born on the same day, making them twins. Both of them have a pokemon, Lavitar, each. As they got near to their house they saw an ambulance outside, the boys decided to check out what’s going on. They saw two body bags containing one body each. And to their tragedy, their mother and father died of murder…

At that time, Jack thought of why anyone would want to murder his parents. They didn’t do anything wrong, they never hurt anyone, they never had any enemies, they weren’t not even rich. All these questions and facts were always inside his head.

After their parents’ death, they were forced to live in an orphanage until a rich man, Jason Hummingburg, adopted them. Jason was a president of a company called “Burgcrop”, which was famous for selling high-tech pokemon products. John became interested in the company while Jack focused more on becoming a pokemon trainer studying the ways of pokemon, and at the same time trying to find the murderer of his parents. But it was no use since the murderer was no longer in town. The only way to find him was to start the journey.

On the twin’s tenth birthday, Jack was excited about being a pokemon trainer. He and John were at a park staring at the pond, knowing with sadness that Jack would have to leave the next day to start his journey, while their Lavitars played with each other.

“Yes, Jack?”
“Do you remember the day our parents died?”
“I’ve been trying to forget that… but go on…”
“Do you know what I’m gonna do? I’m going to find that creep and take him down, just like he did to ma and pa. For the both of us.”
John became shock at John’s announcement. “Jack! No!”
“I don’t want you to hurt anyone! I won’t let you leave if you’re going to do that! I don’t want you to risk your life against this guy, even if he is a creep! We’ve lost mum and dad already! Please, I don’t want to lose you either. Don’t you understand?”

Jack became silent at John’s words about losing him. Jack knew that John felt the same way he did, but he didn’t want to risk himself in case he gets killed too, His brother would be missing him. After all, Jack’s body and size wasn’t strong enough to go against anyone.

“Plus, if you act like him,” John continued. “You would become him.”

Jack became speechless of what John said.

“Promise me, brother…”
It took a while for Jack to respond. “……… Alright, then.”

John puts his hand on Jack’s shoulder, hoping that Jack would keep his promise.
“Sorry, about the yelling.”
Jack began to sob a little. “It’s alright. You had to say something.”

Later, they were called to blow out the candles of their birthday cakes. They came running to a table filled with food and there were two cakes in front of them with candles on top.

John closed his eyes and made a wish. He blew out the candles while Jack stared at the candles. He didn’t feel like celebrating at that time. Everyone got worried about him. His foster father Jason and John knew why Jack had that sad look on his face, but with different reasons. Jason walked over to Jack.

“Listen, Jack,” said Jason. “If you don’t want to go on your pokemon journey, then you don’t have to.”
“I do want to,” Jack responded. “I’m just thinking about something.”

Jason realised what Jack was talking about. “Ah… I know it’s hard for you. But let me tell you something, as long as you keep your mum and dad in your heart, they will always be there for you. Okay? Make a wish…”

Jason backed away from Jack. Jack made a wish. His wish was to find the murderer of his parents one day. Then he blew out the candles…

The next day…

Jack was getting prepared to set on his pokemon journey. Lavitar was sitting on his bed, watching his trainer getting ready. Jack chose his Lavitar to be his first pokemon. This Larvitar has been at Jack’s side since Jack was four years old, and Larvitar was a baby back then.

“Today’s the big day. Are you ready?” Jack asked with a smile.
“Larvi!” Larvitar replied cheerfully.

Jack was about to leave when John entered the room.

“Jack, I want to give you this before you go.”

John handed Jack a photo showing that was showing a picture of them with their real parents before they died. Jack had a tear running down his face.

“John, I…”
“It’s a little something to keep your spirits up, to remind you that you’re never alone.”
“Thanks, bro.”

Later, Jack, John and Jason walked outside the mansion, where a lot of people were waiting for Jack. They all knew Jack had to leave home at some level, they all cheered for Jack, saying…

“We’ll miss you, Jack!”
“All the best, Jack!”
“You can do it, Jack!”

John was right. Everyone that Jack knew and loved in life will always be beside him, believing in him also.

“Thanks, everybody.”

Jack walked through the crowd and walked into a whole new adventure, along with his Larvitar.

“Your brother’s a brave man, my son,” said Jason. “And one day, he’ll become a strong man.”
“Thanks, dad…” John replied tearfully.
More coming!!

[SPOIL]At one point, he visited the Viridian City Gym. And there, he met the Gym Trainer known as Giovanni[/SPOIL].

Brian Random

Chapter 2:

Five years passed. So far, the fifteen-year-old Jack defeated many trainers, including gym leaders. He also participated in different pokemon leagues and small contests. Even though he was far away from home, he contacted his brother and his foster father every now and again.

Eventually at different times, he captured a Totodile, a Nidoran (Male), a Bagon and a Beldum. They have evolved into Crocanaw, Nidorino, Shellgon and Metang, and the Larvitar, his first pokemon, evolved into a Tyranitar.

One time, he visited the Viridian City Gym. Upon entry, he spotted a shadowy and mysterious character.

“I’m here for the gym battle,” Jack yelled to him.
The man gave Jack a small snigger. “State your name, boy.” He said.
“The name’s Jack Hummingburg. What’s your’s?”
“I am the Viridian City gym leader known as Giovanni and since I have this position, I accept your challenge.”
“Good. What are the rules?”
“We’ll use three of our pokemon, but only one at a time. I won’t be changing any my pokemon unless they’re knocked out. You on the other hand will have the privilege to choose your pokemon first.”
“Huh! That means you would have the advantage on the early going. Afraid to lose, huh?”
“I am a far superior trainer to you. Why should I lose?”
“Because you’ve just met your match!”

Jack tossed out his pokeball as he yelled for Croconaw to come out, while Giovanni chose Rhydon to be his first pokemon to battle. Jack couldn’t understand why Giovanni played Rhydon against his Crocanaw.

“Rhydon? Why play him?”
“Rhydon, Thunder attack!”
“I got it now! Croconaw, get outta the way!”

Crocanaw barely dodged the attack. If an electric attack like Thunder struck Crocanaw, he would be knocked out.

“Now, Crocanaw! Water Gun!”

Crocanaw shot out a powerful spray of water to take out Rhydon. Rhydon seemed to be caught by the water attack, but he stood there unfazed.

Jack was shocked and said, “He’s still there?”
“That’s because he used Protect,” Giovanni replied. “You know what that means, don’t you, boy?”
“Protect can stop any attack, even the ones that he is weaker against!”
“Now, Thunder again!”
“Crocanaw, look out!”

Crocanaw dodged out of the way again.
“Alright, Water Gun now!”
“Protect again!”

Rhydon used protect to protect himself from the water attack.

“Headbutt now while Rhydon is distracted!”

Crocanaw dived at Rhydon with a powerful Headbutt. Rock types are strong against Normal attacks like Headbutt, but Croconaw made Rhydon flinch because of his attack.

“You got him, Crocanaw!” Jack shouted. “Water Gun now!”

Crocanaw sprayed a powerful water gun at the flinched Rhydon, knocking him out. Making it 1-0 to Jack.

Giovanni called his unconscious Rhydon back into its pokeball. The next pokemon he sent out was Machamp. Jack decided to call back Crocanaw and sent out his Shellgon. Giovanni became surprised as he saw this as a rare pokemon.

“Shellgon!” Jack shouted. “Headbutt now!”

Shellgon jumped and dived at Machmp but missed

“Machamp! Karate Chop!” Giovanni ordered.
“Shellgon! Flamethrower!” Jack instructed.

Shellgon dodged Machamp’s attack and shot his Flamethrower. The fighting pokemon tried to defend himself from the attack but it was just too much to take as he felt the heating scorch around his body and fainted afterwards.

Giovanni became surprised and shocked at the powers of Jack’s Shellgon.

“Return, Machamp!” Giovanni ordered as he Machamp to return. “Looks like you’ve fought well, youngster.”
“Patience, the best is coming,” Jack replied confidently as he took out his pokeball. Shellgon, return!”
“Beginner’s luck,” Giovanni said back, also being confident. “Kingler! Go!”

Giovanni let Kingler out of his pokeball and showed a confident smile and Kingler yelled out its battle cry as he made clanging noises with its huge claw.

“A Kingler… Time I finish this match off with a bang and a crash!” Jack said. “Tyranitar! Go!”

Tyranitar popped out of his pokeball and gave out a loud roar. Giovanni became shocked again thinking of how Jack get a pokemon that rare, but then he sniggered.

“Stupid boy!” Taunted Giovanni. “Didn’t you know that a water type like Kingler is super effective against a Rock type like your pitiful Tyranitar?”
“Stupid?” Jack said, taunting back. “Aren’t I leading you 2-0?”
“Hmph! Kingler!” Giovanni yelled. “Bubblebeam attack!”

Kingler shot out his Bubblebeam and it homed in on Tyranitar

Jack became shocked with worry. “Tyranitar! Are you okay?” he asked. Tyranitar shook his head to shake away the dizziness.

“Now, Kingler!” Giovanni shouted. “Hydro Pump attack!”

Kingler shot out a huge spray of water out of it mouth. “Tyranitar!” Black Jack shouted. “Tackle with Endure!”

Tyranitar charged at the Hydro Pump attack. Even though the rock body of Tyranitar was weak against water attacks, his and Jack’s will to defeat Kingler was never-ending. When Kingler ended his Hydro Pump attack, Tyranitar continued charged at him.

“Kingler! Crabhammer attack!”
“Tyranitar! Reversal!”

Tyranitar grabbed the huge claw of Kingler before the Crabhammer attack reached him. Kingler tried to get Tyraniter to release his claw by pulling his claw away from him.

“Tyranitar! Slam him!”

Tyranitar used his great strength to hoist Kingler up and then slammed him hard onto the ground.

“Okay, Tyranitar! Finish it off with your Body Slam and Earthquake combo!”

Tyranitar picked Kingler up and slammed him so hard and so fast that it would sound like a car crash! Kingler became unconscious by that move, meaning that Jack wins the round and the match 3-0!

Jack jumped high in the air and shouted, “Alright! We did it!”

Giovanni became slightly disappointed about losing the match, but suddenly he had an idea as he gave an evil smile.

“Jack, my boy. How would you like to work for me?” he asked.
“Thanks for the offer,” Jack replied happily “But I have other things to do.”
“I don’t think you understand my offer… Men!”

Then a bunch of men wearing shady clothing with burets and a huge “R” on their shirts ran at them. Jack noticed the danger and sent out his pokemon at his disposal. Jack and his pokemon fended off all the attackers. Then suddenly, another bunch of men came out carrying guns, aiming at Jack and his pokemon.

“Not only am I the Gym Leader of Viridian City Gym,” Giovanni said. “But I am also the leader of Team Rocket. The bond between you and your pokemon interested me into taking you in as one of the members of my group. Agree to work for me and I will pay you handsomely.”

Jack looked round. He and his pokemon were surrounded by a bunch of men with guns. It seemed obvious of what would happen if he refused to join Team Rocket.

He let out a small sigh of defeat. “How much,” he asked shamefully.

Giovanni, of course, smiled in an evil way…

More coming!! Reviews please!!

Chapter 3:

Giovanni and his men took Jack under their wing to teach him why Team Rocket existed. Team Rocket was a ruthless organisation that steals rare pokemon and sells them for money. Jack couldn’t believe that he, himself, was a Team Rocket member. Ashamed, he never contacted his brother or his foster father since.

There were times when Jack hoped that one of the Team Rocket members would have a compassionate heart about the ways of being a pokemon trainer. Not one of them was.

It took some time for Jack to become like a Team Rocket member. His personality changed from a compassionate trainer with attitude to a ruthless man who had forgotten the definition of will, compassion, and heart now known as Black Jack. Some of his pokemon were had doubts about Black Jack’s behaviour, but Tyranitar still felt that Black Jack still has a good side inside him.

Stealing rare pokemon, money, illegal merchandise, etc. That’s what he did everyday for the next ten years. He did it better than any other Team Rocket member. So good, that Giovanni brought him a motorcycle for his hard work.

That was until, Black Jack (25 years old that time) noticed a young pokemon trainer, known as Ash Ketchum, defeated three Team Rocket members, Jesse, James and Meowth, with a recovered Pikachu. That was then that Black Jack first discovered a kid defeating Team Rocket. Since that day he focused on the young trainer. This was beginning to interest him.

This Ash Ketchum appeared on the news on numerous occasions. This kid just kept on getting better and better and Black Jack kept on thinking about how and why this Ash kept on getting better with his pokemon training, how he got more wins than losses.

Eventually Black Jack’s pokemon evolved into Feraligatr, Nidoking, Metagross, and Salamence.

At one time, Black Jack noticed a strange creature in some sort of armour. It was standing behind a glass with wires connected to the armour. Black Jack took a closer look at it. The creature’s skin was light purple, its arms looked skinny, and had a three-fingered paw, and its legs and feet looked weird. The creature sensed that Black Jack was staring at him.

“Who are you?” The creature sent suspiciously.
Black Jack became surprised. “Huh? How are you talking to me?”
“Psychic powers, human. I’ll ask again…”
“No need, I’m not deaf. It’s Black Jack. What’s yours?”
“Mewtwo. Did Giovanni send for you?”
“Mew… two,” Black Jack thought. “Sounds familiar.” Then he said, “Giovanni? Nah, I’m on my break. I’m just walking around. Are you a pokemon or something?”
“I was created as a pokemon to be for unknown reasons. Giovanni told me that my purpose would become clear when I learn how to control my powers. What’s your purpose here?
Black Jack frowned. “I was forced into working for Giovanni. If I didn’t, my pokemon and I would be shot dead.”

Black Jack didn’t see it, but he knew that it was a little bit shocking for Mewtwo.

“Forced? Shot? Am I being forced into working for Giovanni too?”
“That or he is setting up a huge surprise party for you.”

Black Jack sensed that Mewtwo was being confused. What did Giovanni want with Mewtwo?

“Leave me now, Black Jack.” Mewtwo sent sternly. “I want to be alone…”

Black Jack had a feeling that things were going to turn nasty. At the end of his break, he was ordered to the security room for security duty. He was viewing a screen where Mewtwo’s location was. He turned the sound on for that screen.

“What is my purpose?” Mewtwo sent to himself.

Giovanni came into room.

“To serve your master,” he replied. “You were created to fight for me. That is your purpose.”
“That cannot be! You said we were partners! We stood as equals!” Mewtwo sent in denial.
“You were created by humans to obey humans!” Giovanni said smugly. “You can never be our equal!”

“WHAT!” Black Jack thought as he stood up in shock. He felt something inside that he never felt for a long, long time. It was something that strongly disagreed with Giovanni.

“Humans may have created me…” Mewtwo sent angrily. “But they will never enslave me! This cannot be my destiny!”

Mewtwo’s anger went out of control as he used his psychic powers to destroy the cables connected to his armour.

“Stop this now!” Giovanni ordered.
“I was not born a pokemon, I was created!” sent Mewtwo. “And my creators have used and betrayed me! So… I STAND ALONE!”

Mewtwo destroyed the laboratory and flew away. Only Giovanni and Black Jack survived the destruction. A helicopter flew down for Giovanni and picked him up. Black Jack looked up at the helicopter with Giovanni in it. He clenched his fists as he walked towards one of Team Rocket’s headquarters.

During his breaks, Black Jack kept on focusing on that kid, Ash Ketchum for the next five years. Ash entered many leagues and competitions and nearly won them all. He had also defeated Team Rocket on numerous occasions. The most shocking to Black Jack was when Ash freed the Lugia and its baby from Team Rocket and Prof. Nanba. And it wasn’t long until he heard Ash receiving his eighth and last badge he needed to enter the Hoenn League. There were so many questions in his head. Was pokemon meant to serve mankind or to work with mankind? How did a kid like Ash become such a strong trainer?

Then he thought of answers. He noticed that there was something inside him that angered him when Giovanni mentioned that Mewtwo was never any human’s equal. Something that disagreed with Giovanni’s views.

Black Jack (Now 30 years old) clenched his fists and stormed into Giovanni’s office. Giovanni was shocked at Black Jack’s actions.

“Get out!” Giovanni shouted. “I will not have anyone barging into my office without permission!”
“Shut your hole, you cretin!” Black Jack shouted. “I have two words to say to you! I quit!”
“You dare?! I will not tolerate such rudeness!” Giovanni yelled as he pressed a button on his desk “Security!”

Members of security came running in holding their guns out.

“Take this man into the detention cell!” Giovanni ordered.
“That worked on me before…” Black Jack said. “Not anymore!”

All of his pokemon popped out of their pokeballs. As Tyranitar charged at them, the security people shot him, but the bullets just bounced off him. Nidoking and Feraligatr began teaming up on different members, while Salamence and Metagross began using Flamthrower and Psychic attacks. Black Jack also joined in the fight, until he noticed Giovanni trying to escape. Black Jack grabbed him by the back of his collar, turned him around and held him by his shirt.

“Because of you, people’s lives were a misery,” Black Jack said in an angry tone. “Including mine!”
“I can make your life easier…” Giovanni said with a scared smile.
“Shuddup! Pokemon are not meant to serve us. We are supposed to help each other, but you couldn’t be bothered could you? My pokemon have been with me for a long time, even though I was a thieving scumbag, like you. And there’s one good reason why. They’re my friends. They’ve stuck with me no matter what. Let me ask you something, do you have any friends?”

Tyranitar knew it. He knew that the goodness inside Black Jack still existed. Giovanni opened his mouth to reply, but Black Jack interrupted him saying…

“I didn’t think so. Now follow my advice, you’re gonna close down this annoying organisation and take a long vacation. Jamaica, China, France, I don’t care where you go, just make sure it’s out of my sight.”

Black Jack released Giovanni’s collar and walked away. But there was one more thing he had and wanted to do.

“Shall we… mates?” Black Jack asked evilly.

All of his pokemon nodded and started to trash the entire base. Giovanni demanded Black Jack to stop smashing things but he refused and continued smashing the place up. During the process, he tore the “R” off his unform.

The base started to crumble. Black Jack called back his pokemon and ran to the main entrance while Giovanni made his escape. He spotted a motorbike, but it wasn’t any motorbike. It was the motorbike that Giovanni brought him for his hard work. Time was short for the building and Black Jack had to think quickly whether or not to take the bike, since he liked it so much, but it was brought for him by his former boss. He decided to take the bike, since he hated walking anyway.

He quickly grabbed his bike and drove straight out of the entranceway. The entire Team Rocket base exploded behind him. He drove just far enough to see the destruction of the Team Rocket base.

There was one more question that in Black Jack’s mind. How does this kid defeat so many trainers? “Toughness,” he thought. “That must be the answer.”

As he thought about his new strategy, he drove out of the sight of the Team Rocket base and near to the mountains.

“Watch out, kids… The new Black Jack is here…”

Episode 2: Blaziken's misery

Chapter 1

A man was driving near a dojo called “The Flaming Fist School” near Saffron city to look for some challengers. He was wearing a black leather jacket, black jeans, gloves, sunglasses and a bandanna round his head. Judging by the beard he’s got, people would say that he was thirty years old, and that’s true. This man was known as Black Jack.

Recently after the destruction of the Team Rocket base, Black Jack set off to look for strong trainers but not one was worthy to beat him, so far he had a winning streak of 600-0.

He stopped by the dojo and entered it. He noticed that the pokemon and their trainers training with each other. Further ahead was an old man in Chinese clothing seated next to a Blaziken. It turned out that the old man was the sensei of the dojo. The sensei, the pokemon and their trainers noticed Black Jack standing by the door.

“May we help you, stranger?” asked the sensei of the dojo.

Black Jack introduced himself. “The name’s Black Jack”, he said. “And I’m looking for worthy opponents. Any champions or future champions here?”

One of the students stepped up to Black Jack’s challenge. “I’ll battle you”, he said.

Thirty seconds later, a Hitmonchan was knocked out after just one Slash attack by Feraligatr. Black Jack called back his Feraligatr.

Black Jack shook his head in disappointed. “What was that?” he muttered.

“Don’t jump to conclusions”, the sensei responded. “The boy has only just started in my dojo and he’s only testing his skill. Now, allow me to challenge you.”

“And who are you?” Black Jack asked.
“Master Wong,” the sensei answered.
“Hmm, I hope age hasn’t got to you when you’re battling me.”

The sensei smiles. “Blaziken!”

Blaziken jumped out of his seated position and into his fighting stance. Black Jack called out his Tyranitar. Black Jack knew that Blaziken is a fire and fighting type, and that it has high stats in both physical and elemental attacks but it has low defence stats in both categories. While Tyranitar is a rock and dark type, and is very high in physical attacks and defence. This should prove to be an interesting match.

“Tyranitar! Tackle attack!” Black Jack shouted.
“Sky Uppercut.” Wong ordered.

As Tyranitar charged at Blaziken, Blaziken tried to perform a Sky Uppercut. Both pokemon quickly dodged each other’s attacks.

“For a large pokemon, Black Jack, he’s very quick.” Said Wong. “But Blaziken is quicker.”
“The best has yet to come, old man”, Black Jack replied.

Blaziken and Tyranitar stood their grounds and walked round looking and focusing at each other.

“Blaziken, Comet Punch now!” Wong commanded.
“Tyranitar! Defend!” Black Jack shouted. “Block each of his punches.”

Blaziken ran and gave out punches while Tyranitar quickly blocks them until Black Jack spotted a slow moment in one of Blaziken’s punches.

“Counter with Body Slam attack!” Black Jack shouted.

Tyranitar quickly grabbed Blaziken’s body and slammed him on the ground five times.

“Now, Seismic Toss!”

Tyranitar tossed Blaziken into the air and he landed on his back. Blaziken quickly picked himself up, looking unhurt, even though he had his hand on his lower back.

“Your Blaziken’s tough,” Black Jack said.
“He’s young, and yet so strong and talented,” Wong replied.
“Hmm. Tyranitar! Tackle attack!”
“Again? Blaziken! Counter!”

Tyranitar charged at Blaziken. Blaziken tried to counter back but misses.

“Tyranitar!” Black Jack shouted. “Punch back!”

Tyranitar went to punch Blaziken, but he blocked the attack and countered back and punched Tyranitar on the chest. Tyranitar staggered back.

“Now, Blaziken!” Wong shouted. “Crane stance and Fury Attack!”

Blaziken stood on one leg with his arms spread out and charged at Tyranitar at high speed and his hands / paws became shaped like a beak of a bird pokemon. Neither Black Jack nor Tyranitar saw that coming.

Blaziken began poking viciously and strongly at Tyranitar’s chest and ended the combo by using his Sky Uppercut attack. Tyranitar fell to the floor but quickly picked himself up, holding his chin where the pain was.

“Unpredictable, fast and strong. It seems to me that we’re evenly matched, mate,” Black Jack said.
“Don’t be too sure, youngster. Why don’t we end this match on one final attack?” the sensei replied.

They both shout out their final attack at the same time.

“Tyranitar! Hyper Beam!”
“Blaziken! Hyper Beam!”

Tyranitar breathed in while Blaziken charged up his powers and energy began glowing on the palm of his hands. They were both about to unleash his attack when all of the sudden, Sensei began to feel pain and started coughing out blood. Everyone turned their attention to their sensei while Blaziken and Tyranitar stopped their attack. Sensei fell to the floor, coughing out blood and holding on to his chest, where the pain was. Blaziken became the most concerned out of everyone. He, Black Jack and Tyranitar ran to Sensei’s aid. Black Jack told the kids to call an ambulance.

The sensei in his dying state said, “Black Jack… look… after… Blaziken… for me.”

Then the Sensei fell silent and motionless…

Blaziken became desperate with sadness as he tried to ‘revive’ his teacher. He tried shaking him, mouth-to-mouth breathing, pushing his heart, everything. Blaziken’s tears were flowing as he desperately tried everything he can to ‘revive’ his teacher, non-stop. Some of the pokemon tried to stop him but he fended them off. Black Jack punched him in the face to knock him out. The student trainers became startled by Black Jack’s actions.

“One of you kids take Blaziken to bed,” said Black Jack. “One of you, call an ambulance.”

No one noticed this, but Black Jack had shock in his eyes. But he also had a feeling that a healthy old man wouldn’t die like that. Could it be that he was… poisoned?

Chapter 2

A few days later after Wong’s burial, Blaziken sat on a small stool by a table with flowers and a jug of ashes next to a black and white photo of Sensei. Everyone in the dojo was also saddened by Sensei’s death, including Black Jack. But they were also concerned about Blaziken’s behaviour since his trainer died because he was sitting there for a few days without any food or drink.

Black Jack and some student members of the dojo couldn’t help looking at Blaziken while Blaziken were staring at the photo with a sad face and a sad heart.

“Blaziken and the old man were close, huh?” asked Black Jack.
“How do you know?” asked one of the students in reply.
“Hey, I’m a pokemon trainer, aren’t I? And I’ve been in this situation before. My parents… died a long time ago. I took it too hard as well, and I’m still am.”
“Anyways, somebody needs to do some psychology on the poor guy.”
“You’re right. He’s been sitting there for a long time now.”

Black Jack and the students heard footsteps and turned their heads round. It was Tyranitar, Nidoking Salamence, Metagross and Feraligatr. They’re Black Jack’s pokemon. They walked behind them and noticed that Blaziken was still sitting on the small stool. They, too, were worried about Blaziken.

Author’s note: Since nearly all pokemon speak their own kind of language, I decided to translate everything of what they say from this point.

“He’s still there?” asked Nidoking, scratching his head.
“Yep, he’s been sitting there for a few days now,” replied Salamence.
“Should someone try to talk to him?” suggested Tyranitar.
“Doesn’t he need space?” asked Metagross.
“Tyranitar’s right.” Feraligatr responded. “C’mon, guys, we’re going in.”
“What are they talking about?” asked the student.
“I get the feeling that they want to talk to Blaziken.” Black Jack responded.

He lets them through to talk to Blaziken. Feraligatr came forward and puts his paw on Blaziken’s shoulder.

“Blaziken… we all know how you’re feeling,” Feraligatr said. “But sitting on a small stool won’t help anything. Besides, you have to eat something.”

Feraligatr looked round for a fruit. He spotted some in a bowl and picked an apple. He showed the apple to Blaziken, but he totally ignored it. The look on Feraligatr’s face started showing that he was losing patience. Feraligatr lifted Blaziken up by his furry chest.

“Look, Blaziken! You’re really starting to worry us!” Feraligatr shouted. “I’m trying to help you out here! Snap out of it!”

Black Jack, his pokemon, the students and their pokemon wanted to stop Feraligatr from hurting Blaziken. A Machoke, one of the student’s pokemon, raised his hand out to stop Feraligatr’s doing. Calmed down, Feraligatr put Blaziken down. Blaziken was on his feet as he looked down not wanting to talk to anyone. But he spoke anyway…

“Do you guys know how Sensei died?” Blaziken asked.
“Like the doctor said. Sensei was suffering from a heart attack.” Machoke replied.
“Huh! You guys believe anything you hear! I have been with Sensei all the time! He was fine! He was well! How can healthy man like Sensei die?!”

Black Jack doesn’t know what Blaziken and the other pokemon are saying, but he can instinctively sense what they’re talking about. “My suspicions are the same as yours, Blaziken,” He thought.

“I’m going to find out how Sensei really died,” Blaziken promised.
“C’mon, you guys. Arguing isn’t going to help anyone.” Tyranitar said, trying to stop the arguing.
“He’s right,” Machoke said with agreement. “We should get some rest for Sensei’s memorial tomorrow when our friend comes. Sensei would like that, wouldn’t he?”

Author’s note: Translation ended.

Blaziken nodded and looked down in sadness.

That night, Blaziken tried to sleep but he couldn’t. He went downstairs when he heard some small clanging noises from the kitchen. Blaziken walked into that room. It turned out that Black Jack and his Nidoking caught a couple of thieves breaking in. Blaziken noticed a symbol that looked like a skull.

Nidoking dropped the one of the thieves. Black Jack copied Nidoking and dropped the other thief.

“Guess what I was thinking,” said Black Jack. “A couple of punk kids trying to steal things that don’t belong to them.”

“What’s here is already ours, since the dojo leader died here! I should have you arrested for trespassing!” The thief angrily replied.

Blaziken became shocked of what the thief said. The Thief then turned to Blaziken.

“And you, Blaziken! Even with your great fighting skills, your old master is no match for us. The Poison Fist clan! And you’re still a little puppy dog!”

Blaziken couldn’t take it anymore. He and the two members of the Poison Fist clan engaged in a fight. Black Jack ordered Nidoking to help Blaziken.

Blaziken took out one of the thieves with a Blaze Kick attack. Nidoking slammed another one on a kitchen table. Both members were down and in pain.

“Huh! Didn’t put up much of a fight, did they?” Black Jack said with a forced smile.

Blaziken angrily grabbed one of the members by the collar. “BLAZIKEN KEN?!” he shouted as he started punching viciously and continuously at him until Black Jack stopped him.

“I think the guy’s out, kid,” Black Jack said.

Blaziken released his collar. Black Jack picked up the conscious Poison Fist member and held him in an arm lock.

“Okay, punk kid! I got three tasks for you,” Black Jack said. “Task 1: Tell me the story. Or I’ll let Blaziken knock you all the way to dreamland as well.”

“Err… For decades, this school has always been at the top of the charts.” The Poison Fist member answered in cold sweat. “My sensei couldn’t take anymore being number two. So he hitched up a plan to finally go on top of the dojo mountain. He found a way to poison your teacher and succeeded. Tomorrow afternoon, a lawyer will get my sensei to sign a contract so that he can control this dojo.”
“And the poison?”
“Err… we put the poison inside Blaziken’s sensei’s tea.

Blaziken eyes narrowed in hatred of the Poison Fist clan. He wanted to get revenge on them so badly at this very moment. Black Jack always hated people that disrespect others, so he wanted a piece of them as well.

“Okay, punk kid! Top marks for Task 1,” Black Jack said. “Now, Task 2: Take me to this… dojo of yours!”

Chapter 3

The Poison Fist member took Black Jack and Blaziken to his dojo down town. The place looked creepy to a normal person, but it doesn’t scare Black Jack or Blaziken.

“Task two is done,” said Black Jack. “Now task three, get out of my sight!”

He shoved the member away and continued to walk into the dojo, along with Blaziken. The member picked up a rock and went to hit Black Jack at the back of the head with it, but they retaliated and at the same time punched the member in the face, knocking him out. Then they continued to walk towards the dojo.

Inside the dojo, Black Jack and Blaziken spotted a lot of trainers training with their poison-type pokemon, like Koffings and Ekans. To them, they were students. The students noticed that they’ve entered. Black Jack smiled evilly as he knew that there would be hell to pay.

“Hey, punk kids!” he said. “The name’s Black Jack, and this (looks at Blaziken) is a friend of mine. We’ve come to have a little chat with your… “Sensei.”

The trainers and their pokemon became nervously startled, as they knew what he meant. Some of the trainers ordered their pokemon to attack Black Jack, but Blaziken stepped forward to defend him, stopping the poison pokemon in their tracks.

Blaziken got into his fighting stance. Then without hesitation, the poison pokemon ganged up on him, but he was able to fend them off without getting hit.

One of the students asked in bewilderment, “What? How can a Blaziken defeat our pokemon without getting any orders from Black Jack?”
“Like I said before, he’s a friend,” Black Jack replied. “I didn’t say he was my pokemon.”

Soon, other poison pokemon ganged up on him. After seeing Blaziken getting hit by one of the poison pokemon, Black Jack decided to raise some heck. He released all his pokemon from his pokeballs.

“Okay, boys!” Black Jack said with enthusiasm. “Let’s teach these kids a lesson!”

All of his pokemon gave out their battle cries with excitement and charged into battle, along with Black Jack himself. Black Jack, Tyranitar, Nidoking and Feraligatr teamed up against various poison pokemon by throwing and slamming them in any way possible. Salamence and Metagross were untouchable as they were using Flamethrower and Psychic attacks. Whilst Blaziken was quick enough to avoid attacks and fight back, think about vengeance for his sensei.

In no time, all of the Poison Fist students and their pokemon were knocked down and hurt. Black Jack sarcastically dusted off his hands, motioning that the fun’s over.

Blaziken and his friends walked round the dojo to find the location of the sensei of the dojo. They heard a voice from behind one of the doors. There was also an evil snigger.

“Tomorrow, Mr. Mane, I shall have that school, and I have a lot to thank you for.”

Infuriated of what he heard, Blaziken kicked the door down. Inside the room was a man in a suit on a phone. He hanged up the phone.

“Who’s this Mane guy?” Black Jack demanded.
“That does not concern you! Who are you?” The man in the suit demanded.
“Black Jack! And yours?”
“I am Mr. Min. And you have no business in my office without permission or appointment. Get out!”
“We don’t need any permission or appointment to kick your ***, for you disrespected that Flaming Fist School by poisoning the teacher!”

Mr. Min smiled.

“Hmph! That school is worth nothing, I don’t even know why it should be no.1.”
“Jealous, huh? If you want to be no.1, (Looks at Blaziken) then try to defeat this kid. He came from that school.”
“Blaze!” Blaziken responded.
“From the looks of him,” Mr. Min said. “He’s useless, and I’ll prove it to you! Why don’t we take this battle to the training room?”

In the training room…

Black Jack stood in the middle of the training room. Mr. Min was at one side of the training room mat and Blaziken was at the other side of the mat. There are a bunch of students surrounding the mat to be witnesses, hoping to witness Mr. Min would defeat Blaziken.

“Alright, kids,” Black Jack said. “This is a one-on-one pokemon battle. I’ll be the referee for this battle. There will be no interferences. Anyone who does will receive beatings. On my right, the leader of the Poison Fist dojo, Mr. Min.”

Everyone, except Black Jack and Blaziken, started cheering for Mr. Min. Black Jack then stopped the cheering

“On my left,” Black Jack continued. “One of the best students of the Flaming Fist School, Blaziken.”

The crowd started booing at Blaziken. Black Jack immediately stopped the booing.

“The deal is this, If Mr. Min defeats Blaziken, Mr. Min can have the Flaming Fist School and can do whatever he likes with it. If Blaziken wins, then the Poison Fist School must leave his school alone.”

Mr. Min and Blaziken agreed with the stipulation.

“I’ll use the pokemon, you will never defeat!” Mr Min said with a confident smile. “Go Muk!” he shouted as he threw his Pokeball. Muk popped out of his pokeball.

“Yuk!” commented Black Jack. “I was hoping this match would turn ugly, but not that ugly!”

Mr. Min ordered his Muk to throw out multiple sludges at Blaziken, but Blaziken managed to dodge the attack as he leapt into the air to perform a diving kick.

Seeing this, Mr. Min ordered Muk to detect. Muk did as he was instructed as he stretched out of the way, making Blaziken miss his attack but landed safely on his feet.

Mr. Min then ordered Muk to use Slam attack. Muk raised a part of his body and formed it into a huge hand and aimed to slam Blaziken, but he barely missed him as he stepped out of the way. Blaziken gave Muk a punch but his clenched paw got stuck inside him. Muk hoisted Blaziken up and slammed him on the ground.

Muk then jumped high in the air. Blaziken rolled out of the way when Muk landed on the ground causing an Earthquake, making it difficult for Blaziken to get up. While the ground was still shaking, Muk jumped high in the air again but this time he landed right on top of Blaziken. Blaziken tried to break free from Muk’s pin. He tried and tried until he couldn’t move.

“I win,” Mr. Min shouted triumphantly, but he noticed that Blaziken started moving again underneath Muk after two seconds.

Blaziken was moving around to get out of Muk’s pinning. There was a strange red glow inside Muk. Then suddenly, Blaziken broke through Muk’s body by leaping into the air using Sky Uppercut! Little bits of Muk’s slime splattered all over the mat.

Muk became dizzy and fainted. Blaziken landed on his feet, and then he fell to his knees, tired and heavily breathing for air. He sure didn’t like Muk’s scent. Black Jack announced Blaziken as the winner of the match.

“Blaziken should be disqualified!” Mr. Min demanded. “Blaziken was the first pokemon who couldn’t move at first while being pinned by Muk! Therefore, I win the match!”

“But I’m the referee,” Black Jack replied. “And I’m supposed to be the one that announces the winner, not you. And Blaziken gathered energy inside to break out of that pinning predicament.”

Mr. Min gave a nasty growl.

“You know what this means, don’t ya?” Balck Jack said. “If you hurt that school again, I will be back to get you!”

Black Jack started to walk to the exit, but he stopped to notice that Blaziken stood there staring at Mr. Min. Black Jack wondered what he was going to do. Blaziken gave out a large roar as he leapt forward to kill Mr. Min as Mr. Min shook with fear. But Black Jack grabbed Blaziken by the wrist.

“Blaziken,” said Black Jack. “I know that this creep killed your teacher. But if you kill him, you’ll become a creep too.”

Blaziken understood what Black Jack meant and calmed down.

“Besides, he’s not even worth our time anymore. To me, your sensei is better than this guy.”

Black Jack released Blaziken’s wrist and they made their way back to Flaming Fist School, while Mr. Min shook with frustration.

Thanks, DC *sobs*. Lots of people are reading this fic, yet they're not reviewing it... but I wonder if they were members of this forum.


Chapter 4

It was morning. All the students and pokemon of the Flaming Fist School, including Black Jack, were wearing black clothes to pay their last respects to sensei. A priest was saying his speech.

“I am a friend of Wong and this school and I always will be. When Wong and I first met, I saw him as one of the future’s strongest trainers but also one of the trainers who’ll see that training pokemon isn’t about competition or violence.

“To him, it meant something else. He thought that instead of the pokemon defending its trainer, the trainer would also have to defend not only for himself but his pokemon as well. That way, hopefully, everyone would see that Wong’s theory was true and would create love, peace and harmony all over the world.

“He died of an illness. While he suffering from that illness, he still stood strong and never gave up his teaching. He died while he wished that his theory would, one day will come true.

“As long as this school remains, we shall continue with our training to make Master Wong’s wish come true and make him proud. So now, in honour of his memory, let us have a moment of silence.”

The moment of silence lasted more than a moment. After Black Jack noticed that, he started to leave. Blaziken heard Black Jack’s footsteps and turned around.

“Blaze,” Blaziken said. That caught everyone’s attention. “Blazi Blaziken.”

Black Jack turned round. “Are you saying that you want me to take you along? Like Wong want me to do before his death?”

Blaziken nodded.

Black Jack thought for a moment. “On one condition,” Black Jack said. “We haven’t finished our battle yet. If you battle well, you can come.”

There was some small chatter between the students.

“What do you think?”
“Wouldn’t it be disrespectful for teacher?”
“I don’t know but…”
“Teacher once said never leave your work unfinished.”
“It’s true, and they haven’t finished their battle yet.”
“I think we should let them, it’s about competition, right?”

“Enough!” the priest shouted. “It’s true. Master Wong never leaves things undone. Because once a contest starts there would no stopping until the winner is decided. He would more than happy to finish his last contest with his final opponent.”

“Are you saying that Wong is part of Blaziken now?” Black Jack asked with a smile. “This ought to be interesting.”

Blaziken prepared himself for battle as he got into his fighting stance. Black Jack called out his Tyranitar, the pokemon he was battling with before.

“Tyranitar!” Black Jack yelled. “Tackle attack!”

As Tyranitar made his Tackle attack, Blaziken dodged it by leaping and performing a diving kick.

“It’s about to stomp your head in, Tyranitar!” Black Jack warned. “Block those kicks!”

Tyranitar raised both his arms to defend himself. As Blaziken landed on Tyranitar’s arms, he began kicking them in mid-air, trying to injure them.

“Push Blaziken away!” Black Jack shouted.

Tyranitar used his strength to push Blaziken away. He then shook his arms to shake off the pain. Blaziken stood in his fighting stance to fight again, so did Tyranitar.

“As I thought,” thought Black Jack. “I can feel Wong’s presence inside Blaziken. They must have a strong link together. And Wong must be commanding Blaziken from the inside.”

Blaziken ran at Tyranitar. “Get ready to defend, Tyranitar,” Black Jack ordered. Tyranitar stood his ground and focused on which anatomy Blaziken would use to attack, so did Black Jack.

They both looked at Blaziken and tried to predict which part Blaziken would use. They only had split seconds to decide. “Now, Tyranitar!” Black Jack shouted. “It’s aiming for your face!”

As they predicted, Blaziken used Fire Punch, aiming at Tyranitar’s face. But Tyranitar grabbed his paw. Blaziken went to punch Tyranitar in his lower body but Tyranitar grabbed that as well. Blaziken tried to break free but Tyranitar used Headbutt on Blaziken’s face.

Blaziken staggered backwards, feeling dizzy. Tyranitar ran forward and hit him in the face again, only this time it was with a hard punch. Tyranitar ran to hit Blaziken, but Blaziken tricked Tyranitar and countered the punch and turned his attack into an armbar.

“Submission…” Black Jack whispered to himself. He knows that in general, Tyranitar is a dual Rock and Dark type, meaning that it’s double weak against Fighting type moves like Submission. But after training Tyranitar for so long, he knew that he would withstand that move.

Everyone was expecting Black Jack to surrender, but he had faith in Tyranitar. Tyranitar was withstanding the pain, trying not to scream, and trying not to quit. Shockingly, Tyranitar picked himself while Blaziken was still stretching his arm. Now that Tyranitar stood up, Black Jack found a way to get Blaziken to release Tyranitar’s arm.

“Slam him to the ground!” Black Jack ordered.

Tyranitar slammed Blaziken with his held arm. Not only did the slam hurt Blaziken, he also got him to break the hold as well, but Tyranitar was hurt too. Tyranitar rubbed on to his hurting arm.

“Are you okay?” Black Jack asked in a worried tone. Tyranitar turned round and nodded in response.

Blaziken picked himself up, looking battered and bruised. He was breathing deeply in and out.

Tyranitar felt that both his arms might be broken. He too, was battered and bruised. Black Jack was concerned about Tyranitar’s arms. What if he’s too injured to perform powerful moves like Earthquake or Seismic Toss?

Blaziken was about to give his last shot. He ran to give Tyranitar a Hi Jump Kick again. Realising this, Black Jack ordered Tyranitar to dodge the attack.

Despite the distraction of the pain, Tyranitar barely moved his head to one side and then, without Black Jack’s orders, instinctively gave Blaziken a hard punch in the face. Again, Tyranitar hurt his own arms. He felt that if he moved his arms again, he might pass out from the pain.

Blaziken was knocked down. He felt weak as he tried to pick himself up, not wanting to let his friends of the school down, nor his departed teacher.

Black Jack and Tyranitar noticed that the only way to defeat Blaziken was to do the combined move, Body Slam and Earthquake attack. Tyranitar noticed that Black Jack became concerned about Tyranitar’s arms, but he still had faith in him. Tyranitar knew that if he used that move, he might pass out from the pain.

“I bet you, you can’t!” said Black Jack with a small smile. Tyranitar smiled too, showing that he could do it.

Tyranitar slowly grabbed Blaziken by his waist. He lifted him up in the air as high as he can and than slammed him on the ground so hard, that it sounded like a bunch of cars crashing into each other in a demolition derby!

Blaziken couldn’t continue the battle, meaning that Black Jack and Tyranitar won the match. He lay there motionless and his eyes were closed. “Blazi… Blaziken… ken” Blaziken said breathlessly. Which meant, “Master… I’ve failed… I’m sorry.”

Then suddenly, inside his mind, Wong’s spirit appeared. “You didn’t fail anyone,” Wong said. “The only time when you would fail is when you give up everything you worked so hard for. Your way of living, your friends, everything.”
“I understand,” said Blaziken in his thoughts. “But I need to ask you something. Why have you chosen Black Jack as my new trainer?”
“I have chosen him because I feel that he will train you well. Unlike the other trainers and their pokemon we faced, he and his Tyranitar are the toughest opponents we’ve ever faced.”
“As much as I hate to admit it, I agree, master. But his style isn’t equal to ours.”
“It has nothing got to do with style, Blaziken, my child. He has something deep inside him that shares my theories and wishes about pokemon training.”
“I understand,” Blaziken said as he looked down with a smile.
“Remember this, you’re Black Jack’s pokemon now, but I’ll come back again. Treat your new trainer well, just as well as you treat me.”

Wong’s spirit drifted away from Blaziken’s mind. “No, master! Please! Don’t leave me!” shouted Blaziken. “Master!”

“I’ll come back again,” Wong said as he drifted away.
“Don’t leave me…” Blaziken whispered.

Suddenly, another voice was heard. “Hey, kid!”

Blaziken woke up. He didn’t know if it was a dream or not. That didn’t matter. He knows fully well that his departed master, Wong, wanted him to go along with Black Jack on his journey.

The next day, Black Jack and his new pokemon, Blaziken were about to set off on their journey. “May the spirit of Master Wong be with you,” the priest said.

Black Jack gave a thumb’s up. He and Blaziken got on the Motorcycle. Blaziken never went on a motorcycle before so he held tight around Black Jack’s waist.

As they drove away on Black Jack’s motorcycle, Blaziken tearfully looked back at the dojo where he lived happily under Master Wong’s protection and hoped that one day that he will return.

Next Episode: Black Jack meets a young, tough and arrogant trainer, whose pokemon is as tough as anyone of his.

Episode 3: Rustboro Ghetto

Chapter 1

A man in black leather clothing was driving his motorcycle near Rustboro City in the Hoenn Region. That man was none other than Black Jack.

A couple months back, he and Tyranitar fought against a tough Blaziken in a dojo called “The Flaming Fist School” near Saffron city in the Kanto region. Black Jack remembered the promise he made to the departed sensei of the dojo to look after his Blaziken. With that in mind, Black Jack and his Tyranitar managed to beat Blaziken and capture it, making it his.

Black Jack was arrived in Rustboro city to take a break from his travelling and winning streak, which was 1000-0. He visited a local tavern, and ordered a bottle of beer. As he drank, he noticed that a lot of people were staring at him. As he turned and looked around, they were still staring at him. “What do you guys want?” he asked.

“You creep!” shouted one of the people. He was wearing a punk’s type of clothing. He also had a punk’s type of hairdo. “You’re the guy that left Team Rocket!”

The others joined up, agreeing with him.
“Yeah, Team Rocket rules!”
“We won’t let you get away with this!”

Surprised, Black Jack said, “Who are you guys? Team Rocket fans?”
“We’re more than that!” replied one of them. “We’re the Rocket Revengers! We punish those who hurt Team Rocket!”

An anime sweat drop came down on Black Jack’s forehead. “You gotta be kidding me…” he said.

“C’mon, gang!” shouted another one of the Rocket Revengers. “Let’s teach him a lesson!”

As the Rocket Revengers were about to gang up on Black Jack, he shouted “Hey! At least let me finish my beer first!”

Meanwhile, an 11-year-old girl was about to exit the entrance of Rustboro city listening to her Walkman. She had blue trousers, red sneakers and a black jacket. She had red ponytail hair and cold blue eyes.

As she walks into the nearest forest, a ninja jumped out of one of the trees and landed on his feet. No one can tell from the appearance of his face since he was masked, but he had bushy black hair and serious brown eyes. The colour of his ninja clothing was red.

“You’re late, Cassandra!” said the ninja in a hissy voice.
“Whatever,” Cassandra replied in an uncaring tone. “Let’s get this lesson started.”

The ninja made some bird noises and out popped a Taillow.

“Is that the best you could do?” Cassandra asked in a disappointed tone. “What kind of lesson is this, Seed?”

Without answering Cassandra’s question, Seed said, “Call out one of your pokemon.”

Cassandra threw a pokeball. “Go, Absol!”

Absol came out of her pokeball. “Absol!” she cried.

“Absol!” Cassandra cried “Slash it to pieces!”

Absol leapt into the air and slashed at the confused Taillow, easily knocking it out.

“Very impressive,” Seed said. “Now for another one.”

He made the same bird noises and out came another Taillow.

“What? Another one?” Cassandra complained.
“This one will give you a surprise afterwards”, Seed replied.
“Heh!” Cassandra said arrogantly. “Absol! Slash attack!”

Absol ran at the Tailow and used the attack, but missed.

“Not fast enough”, said Seed. “Think of another strategy.”
“Grr… Absol, Sword Dance and Slash attack!”

Absol span round until her nails became sharper. She was about to use Slash attack, but to Cassandra’s and her shock, the Tailow evolved into a Swellow!

“I told you you’ll be surprised,” said Seed, who was not shocked. “But do not be startled by the evolution of this pokemon. Now go!”

Cassandra nodded and ordered Absol again to attack Swellow. Normally, a Swellow is faster than an Absol. But since Absol was well trained, she had more speed than the newly evolved Swellow. Absol used her Slash attack to knock out Swellow, even though it connected, the Swellow stood unfazed.

“What? How can this be?” Cassandra asked.
“What do they teach you in Pokemon School, child?” Seed said with criticism. “Swellow has a higher defence than its pre-evolved form.”

Absol attacked Swellow again and again, but still it seemed like that it can’t be brought down. Swellow tried to fight back, but Absol kept on dodging each attack.

“Let’s end this, Absol”, Cassandra said. “Flamethrower attack!”

Absol shot out a lick of flame at Swellow, knocking it out.

“That’ll do for today”, Seed said.
“What? So soon?” Cassandra asked as she called her Absol back.
“I have other business to attend to. Take this time to toughen up your pokemon. You may go.”

Cassandra smiled nastily and walked back to Rustboro city.

Meanwhile, back at the tavern, Black Jack and his pokemon stood tall while the Rocket Revengers were lying on the floor either injured or knocked out.

“Well, I have to give you guys credit”, said Black Jack. “You guys lasted longer than Magikarps. But next time don’t disturb me while I’m enjoying my beer!”

He took one more swig of beer and paid the man who was hiding underneath the counter, who got scared of the action. As they left the tavern, a Spearow suddenly dived down and knocked Black Jack down.

“Are you Black Jack, the man on his winning streak?” said a girly yet focused voice. “You can’t be a great pokemon trainer if you don’t know what’s coming at you.” Black Jack looked round and spotted Cassandra with the Spearow on her shoulder.

“You little brat!” Black Jack snarled as he picked himself up. “You talk big for a kid. But I wonder if you can battle big as well!”
“Is that a challenge?” Cassandra asked. “Consider it accepted. Spearow, if you please…”

Spearow flew off Cassandra’s shoulder. Black Jack motioned his head at Feraligatr to go into battle.

“Spearow… Drill Peck!”
Spearow flew like speeding bullet while spinning, aiming its beak at Feraligatr.

“Feraligatr! Grab that beak!”
Feraligatr grabbed Spearow by the beak. It tried to struggle out of his grasp. “You are quick, but I’m quicker,” said Black Jack with a confident smile.

Cassandra had frustration in her eyes. She had no idea what to do in that situation. “Feraligatr! Seismic Toss! Slam it right against that wall!”

Feraligatr tossed Spearow like it was a rugby ball. It crash-landed on its back against a wall behind Cassandra. Cassandra became shocked at the fact that her Spearow lost. She then became frustrated. “Humph! Spearow return!”

“Do you have anymore pokemon we can toy with?” Black Jack taunted.
“Pokemon are not toys for playing about, it’s about battling,” Cassandra replied. “And here’s something that you don’t want to play with. Go, Kirla!”

A Kirlia popped out of its pokeball and cried out its name as she prepared for battle.

“Is that the best you got, kid?” Black Jack asked, still feeling confident. “I’ll let you move first.”
“Your call,” Cassandra replied with a smirk. “Kirlia! Shadow Ball now!”

Kirlia shot out a huge and fast Shadow Ball. It was coming so fast that Black Jack and Feraligatr didn’t have time to react, making Feraligatr get hit by it in the gut.

“Feraligatr! Are you okay?” Black Jack shouted with worry. Feraligatr nodded while holding his gut.

“Not so confident now, are you?” Cassandra asked with a smile on her face. They were about to shout another command but a man in a tuxedo ran into the battle scene. “Stop! Stop the battle!” he cried.

“Oh no!” Cassandra whined. “What is it now, Thompson?”
“Your mother and father requested me to inform you that they’ll be home soon,” Thompson replied.
Black Jack sniggered. “Looks like you’ll have to go back to mummy and daddy, kid!”
“It’s Cassandra to you, big twerp!” she replied with a frustrated look. “Kirlia, return!”

As she turned away from Black Jack, he said, “It’s Black Jack, not big twerp!”

“I got to beat that guy,” thought Cassandra. “Just so I can prove everyone wrong!”
“That kid fought big alright, when she used that Kirlia,” thought Black Jack. “But she better give me some respect no matter what!”

To answer your question, Dark Charizard: Black Jack + winning Streak of 1000-0 = More challengers wanting to end Black Jack's winning streak.

Now, on to...

Chapter 2

Black Jack was in Petalburg forest just outside Rustboro city. He decided to take a break from his journey for a while as he read a newspaper. He read an article about children refusing to go into the streets, even when their parents were forcing them to. The reason why that is it’s because they’re afraid to. Black Jack took a swig of beer.

“They must’ve noticed me around,” he sarcastically thought. He puts down his newspaper and saw that Nidoking and Blaziken about to battle each other as part of their training.

Nidoking ran forward at Blaziken. Blaziken prepared to defend himself. Unexpected, Nidoking turned round to use his tail to smash him. Luckily, he dodged as he jumped high into the air and dived kicked Nidoking, but missed as Nidoking dodged the attack. As Blaziken landed, Nidoking ran at Blaziken to give him his Mega Punch attack. When he was about to hit him, a large slamming sound caught their attention. That noise also caught Black Jack’s attention. They decided to go the location where the sound was, hoping to get some action.

Sure enough, and not far away, Cassandra and Seed were battling a Steelix. They were using Kirlia and Scizor. The Scizor belonged to Seed and the Kirlia belonged to Cassandra. The Steelix was beating both pokemon. Seed and Cassandra shouted out their last attack, hoping that it would knock out the iron snake pokemon.

“Scizor!” Seed shouted. “Metal Claw!”

Scizor gathered up his energy.

“Kirlia!” Cassandra shouted. “Get ready to use Shadow Ball!”

“Scizor, attack!” Seed commanded.

Scizor flew towards Steelix like a speeding bullet. “Now!” Cassandra commanded.

Kirlia shot out his Shadow Ball. The force of Kirlia’s Shadow Ball slightly pushed her away. The attack inadvertently hit Scizor instead of Steelix. “Scizor!” Seed cried worryingly. Scizor was knocked out by the attack.

Realising this, Seed got Scizor to return back to his pokeball. “Return, Scizor!”

Seed turned to his attention to Cassandra. “Cassandra, call back your pokemon!” Seed ordered. “Your Kirlia is not strong enough to fight Steelix.”

But Cassandra was too stubborn. She just hated it when people ordered her around. “Kirlia! Use your Shadow Ball again!”

Kirlia, even though she felt weak, charged up her powers to unleash her ultimate attack. She couldn’t charge quickly enough, so Steelix took his chance to hit her hard with an Iron Tail attack, knocking her down.

Steelix was about to finish her off. But suddenly, a Feraligatr dived down to give Steelix a Headbutt attack to distract him, while a red blur dashed towards Kirlia and grabbed her, it turned out that Blaziken was running towards Kirlia faster than a speeding bullet. Both Feraligatr and Blaziken belonged to none other than Black Jack. Cassandra turned round and gave Black Jack a rude stare as he walked into the battle scene.

“Now for some real training,” Black Jack said.
“We don’t need your help, twerp,” Cassandra rudely replied.
“Who’s helping? I just got bored of my way of training.”

Blaziken placed Kirlia near Cassandra’s foot. She was battered and bruised by Steelix, but Cassandra looked at her unemotionally. Black Jack didn’t notice as he and Feraligatr prepared themselves to battle Steelix.

“Get ready, Feraligatr,” Back Jack said.
Ferligatr nodded. “Feraligatr…”

Steelix used its Iron Tail to slam it on Feraligatr’s head, but luckily he dodged it.

“Feraligatr! Ice Beam attack!” Black Jack commanded.

Feraligatr shot an Ice Beam out of its mouth. The beam did hit Steelix in the face but it didn’t have much affect on it. “Huh, tough guy,” Black Jack said.

Again, Steelix used its Iron Tail. “It’s about to use Iron Tail again!” Black Jack warned. “Feraligatr! Grab it!”

As Steelix swung its tail, Feraligatr grabbed it. “Now, Feraligatr! Seismic Toss!”

Feraligatr grabbed Steelix’s tail with his other hand. “No way!” thought Seed, thinking that a Feraligatr could never lift a Steelix.

But to his surprise, Feraligatr lifted Steelix up and started swinging it around like a Tornado. “Release it!” Black Jack commanded. Feraligatr released Steelix and it flew into the air until it was out of sight.

Black Jack disappointedly looked at Cassandra and saw her emotionless face as she stared at her beaten Kirlia. “Jeez, kid,” he said. “If you knew you were going to get beaten, you should’ve quitted.”

Cassandra rudely stared at him. “I don’t need your advice, granddad!” she replied.
“Cassandra!” Seed shouted. He then turned to Black Jack. “I apologise for my student’s rude behaviour…”
“Rude?!” Cassandra interrupted rudely. “He’s the one who interrupted our training!”
“If he didn’t come to save your Kirlia from Steelix, she would’ve been killed.” Seed hissed.

Cassandra looked at her Kirlia, who was withering in pain. “Return, Kirlia,” she said as she reached out her pokeball.

“Did you learn something, Cassandra?” asked Seed.
“Yes, sir,” Cassandra replied in a defeated yet rude tone.
“You may go.”

Cassandra walked away, feeling humiliated. “Next time, I train alone,” she thought.

At nighttime, Black Jack and Seed sat round a campfire. Black Jack was drinking some beer while Seed sat across the campfire.

“What a day,” Black Jack said. “And I am not talking about battling that Steelix.”
“I agree,” Seed replied, knowing whom Black Jack was referring to.

Seed couldn’t help being concerned, seeing Black Jack drinking a lot of beer as he noticed five empty bottles laying on the floor.

“How can you drink so much?” Seed asked.
“What’s wrong with beer?” Black Jack replied.
“Don’t you ever get drunk?”
“Not once. Surprised?”

Black Jack finished off another bottle of beer and tossed it aside. “There’s this one question I wanna ask,” he said.
“Fire away,” said Seed.
“What’s up with the kid you’re teaching?”
“I have noticed her a few times. Before she became a trainer, she used to get picked on most of the time. This made her feel very lonely.”

“When Cassandra reached the age of ten, she received her first pokemon, Ralts, I noticed that she was having a difficult time training. Having sympathy for the child, I started teaching her about pokemon battles, in exchange for her silence towards my existence. That’s when she became arrogant, stubborn and rude, not to mention tough. Ever since then everyone in her school feared her. Now, she is obsessed thinking about being the greatest trainer of all time.”

Black Jack began to think about Cassandra’s recent actions. She doesn’t show any respect for her pokemon, her theories about being a trainer were way wrong and the way she claims that she is the ultimate trainer when she’s not.

Seed stood up. “I must leave now. You should get some rest too.”
“I’ll be fine here,” Black Jack replied. “See ya.”
“Until then.”

Seed walked a few steps away from Black Jack. He turned round. “Black Jack,” he said.
“Hmm?” Black Jack responded.
“Will you promise me that you would keep silent of my existence?”
“Sure, I don’t boast about things. And I’m not the guy to ruin traditions”
“Thank you.”

Seed leaped up high in the air and far into the distance, leaving Black Jack to think even more.

Meanwhile, back at Cassandra’s house, Cassandra was in her bedroom looking at a pokeball she’s holding. She threw a pokeball and out popped her Kirlia. Cassandra looked at her nastily.

“Kirlia, you are supposed to be the most powerful of the team and you got beaten by some big no-brained snake?”

Kirlia looked down in shame, feeling bad about it. But Cassandra thought of something. What if it was Seed or Black Jack’s fault of Kirlia’s loss?

“Tomorrow afternoon,” Cassandra said. “We’ll be going into Petalburg Forest. We mustn’t let Seed know about this or else he’ll be giving us those boring lectures again. And this time, you’ll win against any pokemon you face without anyone’s help!”

Kirlia raised her head with excitement. She nodded with determination, knowing that she must win to make her master proud.

The next day, Seed was meditating on a beach in route 115 near Rustboro, waiting for Cassandra to arrive. He had been waiting for a long time. “Where could she be?” he thought. “I specifically told her to meet me here for her lesson.”

Cassandra was down at Petalburg Forest with Kirlia, waiting for any pokemon popping to challenge them. They were waiting for an hour as well but for different reasons.

“Kirlia, kirl?” Kirlia asked.
“Not yet,” Cassandra replied. “I know that we have been waiting for an hour. But we’re not leaving until we have found a pokemon to challenge us.”

Suddenly, two Ariados jumped out of the tree branches in front of them. Cassandra sent Kirlia out into battle.

The Ariados’ began to strike at Kirlia, but she dodged the double attack as she jumped. While airborne, she used a Psychic attack at one of them, but the other one jumped in front her and gave her a tackle attack. Kirlia fell flat on her back, but quickly picked herself up momentarily dazed.

The Aridos’ prepared again to double team on Kirlia. They both spat out their Spider Web at Kirlia making her immobile. Cassandra looked at Kirlia with frustration. The ariados went for a double tackle attack on Kirlia, but Cassandra dived and saved her from getting hit.

Cassandra had a worried look on her face. “Kirlia, are you okay?”
Kirlia nodded.

Cassandra had tears in her eyes. “Kirlia… I’m sorry…”

The ariados interrupted Cassandra by shooting their webbing at her.

Kirlia warned Cassandra to get out of the way. But it was too late, as the webbing caught her. At that moment, it was almost impossible to move. Cassandra noticed that Ariados had got sharp jaws.

Both Aridos leapt to give Cassandra their Poison Fang attack. But Kirlia, with the fight left within her, leapt in the way, getting herself caught in their attack.

Seeing her Kirlia getting hurt, tears ran down Cassandra’s face. She used all her strength to escape the webbing.

Cassandra ran to Kirlia’s aid. The ariados cautiously jumped out of the way.

Kirlia was badly injured, almost unable to move. It looked as though Kirlia was near death. Cassandra couldn’t believe what she did.

“Kirlia,” Cassandra cried quietly. “What have I done to you…?”
“Kirlia…” Kirlia whispered. “Kirlia kirl…”
“Kirlia… please… don’t die,” Cassandra begged. “I… didn’t mean to put you through such pain… I… I only wanted to show the others how tough you are… and… I’m sorry… Kirlia… Kirlia?”

Kirlia became motionless.

“I can’t feel you anymore, Kirlia…” Cassandra said emotionally. “No… No… KIRLIAAAAAAA!”

A teardrop from Cassandra’s eyes fell on Kirlia’s face. Suddenly, Kirlia started to evolve into Gardevoir! It looked like that she has fully recovered, thanks to the evolution.

The two Ariados’ became shocked and scared. Cassandra had a surprised look on her face.

“Kirlia?” Cassandra asked.
“Gardevoir…” Gardevoir replied.
“Gardvior, I’m sorry… can you forgive me?”

Gardevoir nodded and turned her attention to the two ariados. They tried to run away, but she used her Psychic ability to throw them into the sky until they’re out of sight.

Gardevoir turned and looked at Cassandra. She quickly flew over to Cassandra and hugged her.

“Gardevoir!” Gardevoir yelled with excitement.
“Gardevoir, I…” Cassandra said while blushing.
“Do you want to go home?”

Gardevoir nodded. As they walked out of the forest, Cassandra said, “Gardevoir, can I ask you something?”
“Don’t tell anyone what happened. I’ll lose my reputation.”

Gardevoir nodded. But unnoticed, two men were hiding behind some trees spying on them. It turned out that it was Seed and Black Jack.

“I knew that kid had a soft side,” Black Jack said with a smile.

Great so far, keep it rolling!
Love the storyline!

Thanks. Rolling on to...

Chapter 3

A kid was walking in a dark alley at nighttime. He was wearing a white shirt and black shorts, he had black hair and red trainers, and he was also carrying groceries. The dark alley had a lot of garbage against the walls of the buildings. Suddenly a pair of hands came out of the shadows and grabbed the kid from behind. He tried to scream for help but one of the hands that were coming out of the shadows was covering his mouth to prevent him from screaming.

The next day, at the Pokemon School in Rustboro, Cassandra was walking to her classroom when the bell rang. “Arrived in a nick of time,” she thought.

As she walked into her classroom, she noticed that some children were missing from their desk. “Strange,” she thought. “The guys haven’t been coming here recently.”

“I should investigate this after school, in case new challenges comes to me,” she thought to herself as she sat at her desk. “I’ll finally show Seed and the twerp who should gain respect around here.”

Meanwhile, Black Jack was sitting on a bench in a park reading another newspaper and it’s saying the same news he read during the previous time. Only this time, the number of scared children was growing. He began noticing that there aren’t many people in the streets. He also spotted a couple of familiar faces he met in a tavern the other day.

Black Jack started to get suspicious about the whole situation, so he got on his motorbike and drove around Rustboro city to investigate.

After school, Cassandra immediately set off to investigate. Her first plan was to visit her classmates that didn’t come to school. During her investigations at her classmates’, they wouldn’t tell her anything in case in case they may get hurt again, but they warned her not to go into the streets.

Cassandra’s first plan of investigation didn’t work. “Drat!” she first thought. “But wait. The streets! If I hang around here, someone is bound to found me. Then I’ll prove everyone wrong!”

That night, Cassandra stood in front of the shadows of an alleyway. Suddenly a pair of hands grabbed her from behind and pulled her into the alleyway. Cassandra tried to scream but her mouth was covered.

Meanwhile, Black Jack rode around Rustboro city all day for clues about why the streets were becoming almost empty. He was getting more impatient and more suspicious. He stopped his bike, thinking where to go next. Suddenly he heard a scream. He had a suspicion that that scream belonged to Cassandra. He rode his bike to that location.

Back at Cassandra’s location, Cassandra was scared stiff on her own two feet, while her Gardevoir was getting battered and bruised. On the other side of the alleyway were nothing but shadows.

“Sneasel! Fury Cutter now!” commanded a man with croaky and nasty voice. He was standing behind the shadows.

Cassandra was too scared to give another command. Sneasel dashed out of the shadows and used Fury Cutter on Gardevoir’s face. After seeing that, Cassandra became shocked.

Gardevoir covered her face with both her paws, whimpering in pain. Cassandra ran to Gardevoir, knowing that she lost.

“Gardevoir…” Cassandra said with a quivering voice.

“That’s right!” the man taunted. “Run to your pitiful creature while you admit defeat!”

Gardevoir showed her face to Cassandra and it turned out that she was bleeding! “Gardevoir!” Cassandra cried. She grabbed a handkerchief from her pocket and placed it on Gardevoir’s face.

“Did you really think that you can become the ultimate Pokemon master?” the man asked. “I didn’t think so, since there are no other masters but the members of Team Rocket and the Rocket Revengers!”

“That includes me as well, right?” asked a deep and familiar voice. It turned out it was Black Jack as he came into the dark alleyway. “I guess not, since I left Team Rocket ages ago!”

“You? You used to be a member of Team Rocket?” Cassandra asked “How…?”
“Long story, and I have my reasons why I left,” Black Jack replied. Then he turned his attentions to the shadows that hid the mysterious trainer.

“Spill! Who are you?” Black Jack demanded.
“They call me Stalker, one of the Rocket Revengers!” the man replied as he walked out of the shadows. He had punk like clothes and spiky hair and had tattoos on his face, arms and all. “And I know who you are! You’re the man that beaten up the Rocket Revengers. How dare you lay a finger on them!”
“Self-defence! They were coming on to me!”
“We have the right! The Rocket Revengers can do what we want, when we want! Since you hurt us, you’re gonna pay! And I’ll have the honour of dismantling you and your pokemon.”
“Is that a challenge? Cos I just heard a ding in my ears, saying that it’s time to smash some heads, mainly yours.”
“You will suffer like that little girl did! Sneasel!”

Sneasel leapt out of the shadows as he prepared himself for battle. Black Jack took out a pokeball from his belt and tossed it. “Go! Blaziken!”

Blaziken popped out of his pokeball. Black Jack studied the type advantages of both Sneasel and Blaziken. “Sneasel has both Ice and Dark types, while Blaziken has Fire and Fighting type,” Black Jack thought to himself. “That means Sneasel wouldn’t stand a chance. And I can guess what Stalker’s strategy is.”

Stalker yelled out his first command. “Sneasel, jump into the shadows!”

Sneasel did as what he was told as he jumped into the shadows. Blaziken and Black Jack confidently stood their ground.

“So, Black Jack! Scared already?” Stalker taunted.
“I wouldn’t say scared, Stalker. I’m just looking forward to something,” Black Jack replied while still smiling confidently.
“Hahaha! You can only forward to your defeat! I can feel that inside you that you’re afraid of the dark!”
“I’m thinking quite the opposite, Boogerman.”
“Boogerman? No one calls me that!”
“Why not? It suits you since your gang pick on young kids in the dark, I bet that you guys couldn’t face a harmless kid face-to-face!”
“You’re talking nonsense!”
“Humph! Whatever you like my theory or not, we’re in a middle of a battle. So shout out you’re next command. That is, if you’re not scared.”

“What is Black Jack up to?” Cassandra asked to herself.
“He’s using Stalker’s strategy against him,” Seed replied as he walked into the scene. “I hope you’re learning something from him.”

“Me? Scared?” Stalker thought. “I do know that most of Sneasel’s attacks are weak against Blaziken’s defence stats, but I’m using a strategy that no one can defeat!”

“Sneasel!” he shouted. “Jump Kick attack now!”

Black Jack and Blaziken’s eyes moved slightly to the left, where the shadows are and both of them nodded slightly. Sneasel leaped out the shadows and tried to leap kick Blaziken on the side of the face, but missed when Blaziken leaned his head backwards easily.

“What?” Stalker shouted shockingly. “How can this be?”

“I knew that you would get Sneasel to hide in the shadows,” Black Jack replied. “Punk kids like you always jump on another guy from behind.”

Stalker growled with frustration. “I’m gonna knock you out!” he shouted.

“Fine,” Black Jack confidently replied. He and Blaziken looked at each other and they both nodded. “How about this then. I’ll give you up to five commands and Blaziken will not fight back.”

“What is he planning?” Stalker thought. “Is he trying to insult me again?”

“What’s it going to be?” Black Jack asked.
“Fine, but my first three will beat your Blaziken and you,” Stalker replied. “Sneasel! Double Team!”

Soon, there were multiples of Sneasel surrounding Blaziken. “Four commands to go,” Black Jack warned.

Stalker’s sweat was beginning to show. “Sneasel! Barrier!”

Sneasel created a shield around the multiples of himself. Stalker knew that using Barrier would raise the defence stats of his Sneasel. “Three commands left,” Black Jack warned. “Three more attacks until Blaziken rip your Sneasel apart.”

“Impossible!” Stalker thought. “Black Jack should’ve been scared stiff by now! Why is he so confident? I must beat this guy!”

“Sneasel! Slash attack now!” Stalker commanded.

Sneasel leapt forward to give Blaziken a Slash attack, but Blaziken dodged out of the way. Sneasel lost his balance in mid-air and landed on his front body. Sneasel struggled to get to his feet. “Two attacks left,” Black Jack warned. “And you said it’ll only take three attacks to take Blaziken down.”

Stalker growled with frustration again. “I’ll get Sneasel to boost up his defence again, just in case,” he thought “Blaziken wouldn’t have the strength to break through Sneasel’s barrier.”

“Sneasel!” Stalker shouted. “Use your barrier again.”
“Again?” Black Jack asked.

Sneasel boosted up his defence stats again.

“Now!” Stalker shouted. “Slash attack!”

Sneasel leaped into the air. “You’re five commands are up!” Black Jack shouted. “Blaziken! Detect and Counter!”

Blaziken raised his paw and grabbed Sneasel’s claw before it reached him. Blaziken then threw Sneasel away. He landed on his back. While he struggled to his feet, Stalker had a shocked look on his face, as he couldn’t believe that all that five commands gave him nothing but more frustration.

“Blaziken! Brick Break!” Black Jack commanded.

Blaziken was too quick for Stalker and Sneasel to respond as he ran at Sneasel to smash through the barriers that Sneasel created, giving damage to him also. Sneasel struggled to get to his feet again.

As he lifted up his head, he saw Blaziken giving him a Blaze Kick in the face, knocking him out.

“Does this mean…?” Cassandra asked.
“Yes, Black Jack won,” Seed replied.

Black Jack gave a small confident laugh. “And I only took you down in three commands.”

Stalker angrily looked at Black Jack. “I… I’ll kill you!”

Stalker took out a knife out his pocket and charged at Black Jack. Stalker swiped his knife around at Black Jack but kept on missing. Black Jack grabbed him and threw him at the nearby trashcans. He walked over to Stalker and lifted him by the collar of his shirt.

“If I hear that you pick on those little kids again… I’ll be back to get you,” Black Jack nastily warned as he dropped Stalker down.

Black Jack walked over to Cassandra. “Want me to take you home?” he asked. “Your parents are waiting.”

Cassandra nodded, feeling a little ashamed for herself. “Okay,” she said. “But first, I have to put Gardevoir in the pokemon center.”

As they drove back to Cassandra’s house, Cassandra got off Black Jack’s bike. “Black Jack, can I ask you something?” She asked.
“Sure, kid,” Black Jack replied.
“Do you think that I’m a loser?”
“Yep, everyone loses at some level.”
“You as well?”
“Nope. Not ever.”

Black Jack was about to leave with his motorcycle, but Cassandra stopped him. “Black Jack! Wait!” Cassandra called. “Thanks for helping me out back there.”
“No problem, kid.”
“But because of what happened from our battle, it didn’t come out right for either of us.”
“True, kid.”
“When we battle each other again, we’ll fight to our strongest. Deal?”
Black Jack laughed a little and replied. “Deal.”

There was no need to shake hands, as they knew that they would face each other in future. “She better improve,” Black Jack thought to himself. “Or else, there would be hell to pay.”

Pretty cool! I look forward to the next one :D

D_C ;006;

Here it is.

Chapter 4

It was nighttime. A man in punk’s clothing was leaning against a wall reading a newspaper in a crowded street. He was reading the news that Black Jack defeated a Rocket Revenger, meaning that the children will have nothing to fear from them anymore. A vain was throbbing in his head as he scrunched up the newspaper. “I’ll show you,” he growled.

The next morning, all of the pupils were going back to the Pokemon School, knowing that they have nothing to worry about the Rocket Revengers anymore.

At break time, Cassandra was put on pokemon care duty. She was feeding, cleaning and caring the pokemon that her class was studying on. Normally, she refused to do it, but after the other night, when a Rocket Revenger named Stalker and his Snaezel beat her Gardevior, she realised how much her pokemon loved her trainer. That morning, before she arrived at school, she collected her Gardevior from the pokemon center, only to discover that Gardevior had a permanent scar on her face.

“If the Rocket Revengers appear in my life again,” she thought to herself. “I mustn’t let them or my fear get to me.”

Suddenly, she heard a lot of her classmates screaming. Then she heard a man’s voice. “Take them outside!” he shouted. She hurried outside to see what was going on. She noticed that people in punk like clothing were holding her classmates hostages. “That kid lover, Black Jack should come be here to save these kids!” said one of the punks. “When he does, boys, we’ll have a little surprise for him and I know that WE will like it! Hehe!”

“Rocket Revengers!” she whispered to herself. She then hurried to another exit but spotted the other Revengers inside the school. She quickly hid herself and then looked around to see if they were still there. When the coast was cleared she hurried to the nearest exit.

As she made her way out unnoticed, the police had already arrived on the scene. A woman in police-clothing grab held of a megaphone and spoke into it.

“Rocket Revengers!” she yelled. “You are all under arrest! Lie down on the floor and place both hands on the back of your heads! Slowly!”
“Forget you!” shouted one of the Revengers in reply. “We’re not going anywhere until we get Black Jack!”
“Why do you want him?” the officer asked.
“None of your business!” The Revenger shouted back. “Just give us Black Jack and we’ll show the whole world why Team Rocket and the Revengers aren’t the teams to be messed around with!”

The officer had no idea what to do next.

“Alright then!” the Revenger shouted. He picked up one of the school children and held a knife near his neck. “If we don’t see Black Jack in ten minutes, I’ll slit the kid’s neck off!”

The officer realised that they had no choice but to get Black Jack. Some of the officers were sent off to look for him.

Meanwhile, Black Jack was walking out of the local tavern finishing off another bottle of beer. “Great,” he thought to himself. “Not a Rocket Revenger to spoil my beer.”

He was about set off on his motorcycle and leave Rustboro City, when a familiar voice was heard. “Black Jack!”

Black Jack turned round and saw Cassandra coming his way. She stopped to breathe quite heavily. “Kid!” Black Jack said. “Why aren’t you at school?”
“The Rocket Revengers,” Cassandra replied while panting. “They’re back!”
“Can’t get enough of me, can they?” Black Jack asked stressfully. “Get on!”

Cassandra hopped on Black Jack’s motorbike and they drove off into the school’s direction.

Back at school, the Rocket Revengers were getting impatient. “Time’s running out!” warned one of the Revengers. The officers hoped and hoped that Black Jack would arrive soon.

“Time’s up!” shouted the Revenger as he was about to slit the child’s throat but was interrupted when a voice was heard. “Hold it right there!”

It was Black Jack and Cassandra driving into the scene. Black Jack immediately stopped his motorcycle as soon as it was in front of one of the police cars. Black Jack and Cassandra walked passed the police cars.

“I’m here now!” Black Jack said. “Leave those kids out of this!”
“Not just yet!” said the Revenger, still holding the child and the knife. “You may have beaten one of our strongest members, Stalker. But you haven’t faced the likes of me yet!”
“And you are?”
“My name is Shadowman! Leader of the Rocket Revengers! And I have a little surprise for you!”
“Let me guess! You’re gonna have you’re cronies gang up on me again? What are you afraid of, Shadowman?”
“I fear nothing! And neither do we! Let’s get em’ boys!”

All of the Rocket Revengers sent out various kinds of pokemon. “I’m guessing that they’re poorly trained,” Black Jack said with criticism.

All of his pokemon popped out their pokeballs, ready for another good battle! “Come on!” shouted Black Jack. His pokemon yelled out their battle cries in response as they and Black Jack charged into battle.

Black Jack was fighting against all the members of the Rocket Revengers. His pokemon were fighting against all the pokemon that were sent out by the Revengers.

While Black Jack was pummelling another member of Revengers, another Revenger was creeping on him with an empty bottle in hand. Suddenly a Spearow dived down and hit him in the back of the head, knocking him out. Black Jack heard the impact and turned round to see a Spearow helping him out, but it wasn’t the only one helping. A scarred Gardevior, an Absol, a Magneton, a Trapinch, and a Treecko were also helping him. They happen to be Cassandra’s pokemon. Black Jack looked at Cassandra and smiled as he gave a thumb’s up.

Soon, almost all members and pokemon of the Rocket Revengers were knocked out. But there was one more member standing… Shadowman!

“Getting nervous now, Shadowman?” Black Jack arrogantly asked.
“Annoying prick!” Shadowman taunted. “If you’re so tough, why did you get help from your pokemon?”
“I would’ve taken you all down myself. But my pokemon felt that they needed a little exercise, plus they love a good fight when they hear one.”
“You insignificant creep! Battle me! Now!”
“Nah! Not this time!”

Black Jack looked at Cassandra with confidents. “Cassandra can battle you instead.”

Cassandra also gave a confident smile. “Thank you, Black Jack,” she replied. Then she gave Shadowman a nasty look.

Shadowman sniggered. “C’mon then!” he sneered. “Let’s make this a one-on-one so I can finish you off quickly.”
“As you wish,” Cassandra replied.

Cassandra sent Gardevior out to battle. Shadowman laughed out like a maniac. “Go, Sableye!” he shouted as he sent out his pokemon.

“Gardevior!” Cassandra ordered. “Psychic attack!”

Gardevior shot out a Psychic blast, but it went passed Sableye.

“What?” Cassandra said in shock. “But why?
“You’re brain is too slow, kid!” Shadowman said. “Didn’t you know Sableye has qualities of both Dark and Ghost pokemon?”
“Cassandra’s at the disadvantage,” thought Black Jack. “Dark and Ghost type pokemon can be tricky for an average Psychic pokemon.”
“Do you still think you can defeat me, you pathetic little girl?” Shadowman taunted. “Admit defeat!”
“No way, Shadowman!” Cassandra replied. “After what you did, I will never surrender to you!”
“There goes that ego again,” Black Jack thought. “But she also needs a little bit of strategy in this one.”

“Now, Sableye!” Shadowman ordered. “Headbutt attack!”

Sableye launched himself and aimed his head at Gardevior’s scarred face. Sableye was too fast for her to dodge. When she got hit in the face, she staggered backwards holding the scarred part of her face.

Cassandra noticed Gardevior’s agonising pain on that face and but still had determined look in her eyes.

Throughout the match, Shadowman and his Sableye have been dominating against Cassandra and her Gardevior, using a lot of underhanded tactics. But even in the jaws of defeat, neither Cassandra nor Gardevior would quit. Shadowman was getting frustrated.

“Give up, you fool!” Shadowman shouted. “We’re cracking you like eggs!”
“You’d like me to crack, wouldn’t you?” Cassandra replied. “Worked on me before but never again.”
“We’ll see about that!” Shadowman taunted. “Sableye! Finish that brat off with your Faint attack!”

Gardevior, battered and bruised, stood up. Suddenly her vision became dark and blurry, caused by Sableye’s Faint Attack.

“Gardevior!” Cassandra yelled. “Foresight now!”

Gardevior used Foresight to see through the darkness. The next thing she saw was Sableye coming straight at her, she dodged the attack a split second before he reached her.

“What!” Shadowman yelled. “How can this be? Faint attack never misses.”
“Not everything goes by the book,” Black Jack replied with a smirk.

Shadowman snarled. “Sableye! Attack Gardevior again!”

Sableye jumped to attack Gardevior.

“Gardevior! Grab him!” Cassandra ordered.

Gardevior grabbed him and held him tightly. “This can’t be!” Shadowman shouted in denial. “Sableye’s a ghost pokemon, how the heck did Gardevior managed to grab him?”
“Gardevior used Foresight, remember?” Black Jack replied. “Throughout the match, you kept on ordering Sableye to beat Gardevior while she trying to get up. Not only you are a coward, you are a no-brainer as well.”
“Now, one more attack will finish this thing off!” Cassandra said.
“WHAT?” Shadowman yelled in shock.
“Gardevior!” Cassandra ordered. “Thunder attack!”

Gardevior yelled out a cry and the clouds were about to darken.

“No!” Shadowman begged. “Don’t! Wait a minute!”
“Did I hear Shadowman begging?” Black Jack thought to himself while smirking.

Gardevior screamed even louder and a huge strike of lightning struck down on both of them. The lightning was so bright that everyone had to cover their eyes, except Black Jack who was wearing sunglasses.

After the lightning was gone, everyone looked back at the battle scene. Sableye and Gardevior were lying on the floor, battered and bruised. Everyone thought that were both knocked out, but Gardevior slowly picked herself up while Sableye still lay there.

“Looks like we have a winner,” Black Jack said.

Cassandra rushed over to Gardevior to give her a heart-warming hug. “Gardevior! You did it!” she cried.

Gardevior’s body was in pain but she didn’t care, because the only thing that can never be hurt was her spirit and heart.

Shadowman just couldn’t believe it, him, losing to a little girl. “No one has ever beaten me,” he growled. He then looked at Cassandra and her Gardevior.

“In the name of Team Rocket and the Rocket Revengers…” he snarled. “I’LL KILL ALL OF YOU!”

He took out a knife and ran to stab Gardevior with it, but Cassandra rushed right in front of her to protect her. Just before the knife reached her, a large sole of a boot was coming directly at Shadowman’s face!

It was Black Jack! He performed a jump kick at Shadowman. Shadowman quickly picked himself and desperately tried to run away but was caught by the police.

Shadowman and his cronies were handcuffed and got placed inside police vans. “I’ll get you one day, Black Jack!” he shouted. “Those jail cells won’t keep me in forever, you know!”

“I look forward to it,” Black Jack said to himself in response.

Suddenly a limo came by. A girl just above Cassandra’s height and age came out of the back of the limo. She was wearing dark blue sort of dress. “What’s going one here, Cassandra?” she asked.

“Everything’s okay now, Roxanne,” Cassandra replied. “We finally got rid of the Rocket Revengers.”
“Them again?” Roxanne asked. “Good thing they’re placed behind bars now, eh?”
“Actually, it was you who got rid of those guys,” Black Jack said to Cassandra. “The police and I were just helping out.”
“Ah, Black Jack,” Roxanne said. “The man on his non-stop winning streak. Did you say that Cassandra defeated them?”
“She defeated the leader,” Black Jack replied with a smile. “Just like that,” he continued while snapping his fingers.
“I’m impressed,” Roxanne said. “And I apologise for being away for so long.”
“What do you do anyway?” Black Jack asked.
“I’m the gym leader of the Rustboro City Gym. I have been away a lot recently on business.”
“So if you’re away a lot, who’s been taking over?”

Roxanne looked at Cassandra. “No one,” she replied. “But after what Cassandra has done, I’m placing her as vice-gym leader.”

Cassandra became excited about this opportunity. “Roxanne, thank you.”

Black Jack smiled as he checked his watch. “Well, looks like I’ll be off then,” he said. “It was fun while it lasted.”

He was about to take off on his motorcycle but Cassandra stopped him. “Hey! Wait!”

Black Jack turned to Cassandra’s attention. “How about you battle me for the badge?” she asked.
“Now?” Black Jack asked in replied.
“We haven’t finished our match yet. And if you beat me, I’ll give you the badge.”

Black Jack knew about the rules of entering the Hoenn League. In order to enter, he must defeat eight gym leaders and claim their badges. In the past, he already won a few badges here and there, although that’s what he claimed.

“Alright then,” Black Jack replied with a nasty smile. “I accept.”

Thanx, Dark Charizard. Oh, and I'll change the spelling when I have the time. *Looks around* Where's everybody else?

Chapter 5

Five hours later after visiting the pokemon center to get their pokemon healed, Black Jack and the vice-gym leader Cassandra went to the Rustboro City gym. Inside the gym, a large number of audience members, mostly children, were there to gave a cheer when the two trainers came out together. Roxanne was part of the audience as well.

“So, Black Jack,” Cassandra said. “Are you ready for this?”
“I think you already know the answer,” Black Jack replied. “How many pokemon we’ll be using?”
“Three-on-three will be fine.”
“Alright then.”

“I wish Seed was here to see this, he’d enjoy watching this,” Cassandra sadly thought. But she spotted Seed as part of the audience. Seed gave her nod, motioning that he was very proud of her. Cassandra smiled back in response.

“I’ll pick first,” Black Jack said. “Go Metagross!”

Metagross popped out of his pokeball and yelled out his battlecry.

“A Metagross? I never seen that pokemon before,” Cassandra said.
“Why am I not surprised?” Black Jack asked. “Even Gym leaders have things to learn, even when they’re the best ones.”
“Hmm, I must choose carefully,” thought Cassandra.
“Come on,” Black Jack said. “Choose one your pokemon.”
“Magneton!” Cassandra yelled. “I choose you!”

Magneton popped out of its pokeball.

“Magneton! Attack!” Cassandra ordered. “Thunderbolt!”
“Metagross! Psybeam attack!” Black Jack ordered.

Magneton charged up its electric powers and shot the attack, while Metagross effortlessly shot out two Psybeams out of its eyes. One of Metagross’ psybeams collided with Magneton’s Thunderbolt while the other hit Magneton!

Magenton shook away the dizziness that it took from Metagross’ psybeam. “Magenton,” Cassandra called. “Are you okay?”

Magneton nodded in reply. “Okay,” Cassandra thought. “I must try something else.”

“Magenton,” Cassandra yelled out. “Tackle attack!”

Magneton flew down at Metagross, but neither Black Jack nor Metagross were responding to that attack.

Magneton rammed into Metagross, but to everyone’s surprise, neither of them were fazed or hurt.

“So, Metagross’ a steel type as well,” Cassandra thought. “I got to think of another strategy in order to win.”

“Metagross!” Black Jack shouted. “Tackle attack!”

Metagross leapt into the air and gave Magenton a tackle attack, only it’s more powerful than Magenton’s. Magneton fell to the floor hard, but it’s still able to battle after it quickly picked itself up.

“Metagross!” Black Jack shouted. “Tackle again!”

“Magenton! Use Thunderbolt!” Cassandra commanded.

Magneton used Thunderbolt on Metagross and it took damage. But that didn’t stop Metagross from tackling Magneton about. “Now, Metagross!” Black Jack commanded as Magenton was knocked down. “Stomp it now!”

Magneton lifted up one of its front legs and stomped Magneton through the ground, knocking it out. Cassandra became shocked of what she saw. She called back her defeated Pokemon. “It’s okay,” she said. “You did you’re best.”

She picked out another pokeball. “Go, Absol!”

Absol came out of her pokeball. “An Absol?” Black Jack asked in a confused tone. “Why use that?”

“Absol!” Cassandra shouted. “Flamethrower attack!”

Absol shot out her flamethrower. The attack was too quick for both Metagross and Black Jack to react as it hit Metagross, knocking him out.

“Shoot!” said Black Jack, cursing himself for underestimating Absol. He called back his pokemon. “Nicely done,” Black Jack said. “Not only that we’re even here, but you took out one of my best pokemon as well.”

Black Jack picked out another pokeball. “Go! Salamence!”

Salamence gave out a loud roar, as it prepared itself for battle. “Salamence!” Black Jack shouted. “Fly attack!”

Salamence flew high up in the air and then dived down at Absol. Luckily, she jumped out of the way. “Good dodging, Absol,” Cassandra said. “Tackle it back!”

Absol leapt into the air and hit Salamence with her tackle attack. “Nice move,” Black Jack thought. “Even though she’s a kid, she battles like a pro. But she still has a long way to go to beat me.”

Absol and Salamence kept on exchanging blows on their trainers’ commands. Both pokemon became spent as they breathed heavily.

“It’s nearly out, Absol!” Cassandra shouted. “Finish him off with Sword Dance and Take Down attack!”

Absol spun around to perform her sword dance and then ran at Salamence. He and Black Jack stood their ground, waiting for Absol to hit the move.

“You got them now!” Cassandra shouted.
“Salamence! Counter now!” Black Jack commanded.

Salamence lifted up his front legs, grabbed Absol and quickly, using Absol’s strength speed and strength against her, threw her over his head! Absol landed on her back.

“I never seen that before,” shouted one of the audience in amazement.
“How did he do that?” Cassandra asked herself aloud.
“I’m no magician,” Black Jack replied. “But I never reveal my secrets. Now Salamence! Hyper Beam attack!”

Salamence quickly shot out a powerful Hyper Beam at the weakened Absol, knocking her out. She was no longer able to battle. Cassandra called her pokemon back and sent out her Gardevior.

“Hmm…” Black Jack murmured. “Salamence return. You’re doing good, take a breather.”

Salamence returned to its pokeball. “Nidoking!” Black Jack shouted. “Your turn.”

Nidoking popped out of his pokeball and gave a loud roar. Both pokemon stood tall for battle. “Why would Black Jack use Nidoking?” Cassandra thought. “He should know that a poison type like Nidoking wouldn’t stand up against Psychic attacks.”

“Nidoking,” Black Jack shouted. “Tackle attack!”

Nidoking charged at Gardevior, but she countered it by using her Psychic blast, which blew Nidoking away. “Normally, an average poison type would give up against Psychic types,” Black Jack thought. “But Nidoking is an exception. He’s as tough as I am.”

From that point on, each time Nidoking used any attack, Gardevior kept on countering that move with psychic attacks. And each time Nidoking gets hit, he kept on getting back up. And Black Jack was still confident about the situation.

“What’s going on?” Cassandra thought. “Nidoking should’ve been down and out by now.”

Nidoking was being battered, bruised and weakened, but he just won’t stay down. Suddenly, Black Jack felt that anger ignited inside Nidoking as he gave a loud roar. “You’re in for it now, kid!” Black Jack warned. “Nidoking! Rage and Thrash attack now!”

“Gardevior!” Cassandra shouted. “Psychic attack.”

Gardevior used her Psychic attack to hurt Nidoking, but he never felt Gardevior’s attack as he ran and tackled her like a madman. When she got caught, he started pummelling her like a punching bag, ending the attack by giving her a Mega Punch to finish her off. “GARDEVIOR! NO!” Cassandra cried as she saw Nidoking giving Gardevior one heavy punch to the face.

As Gardevior lay there, everyone thought that she was defeated. To everyone’s shock, Gardevior slowly picked herself up. Even Black Jack was shocked.

“Nidoking!” Black Jack shouted. “Grab Gardevior’s neck.”
“Gardevior!” Cassandra warned as Nidoking was walking up to Gardevior. “Look out!”

But Gardevior was too dizzy to concentrate as she turned round, only to get caught in the neck by Nidoking’s claws. “Slam her now!” Black Jack ordered.

Nidoking, still having the anger inside him, slammed her. The impact was so hard that it sounded like a rock breaking into pieces.

Gardevior, feeling rather weak, feeling that every part of her body was killing her, still wouldn’t quit as she slowly picked herself up again. Seeing that, everyone was shocked. Not wanting to see her Gardevior get hurt anymore, Cassandra ran to protect her from Nidoking. “Enough!” she yelled. “I surrender…”

“That’s enough now, Nidoking,” Black Jack said. He then turned to Cassandra. “Nice timing, kid. You’re not a bad trainer after all.”
“You’ve beaten me, Black Jack,” Cassandra said in a defeated tone. She turned to the audience. “I’m sorry, everybody…”

But, apart from getting boos, the audience gave a standing ovation to both Black Jack and Cassandra. “They like you, kid,” Black Jack said.

Roxanne came down to the battlefield and congratulated the two trainers. “Even though a loss is a loss,” Roxanne said. “You battled very well, and I’m very proud of you.”

“For the past several months, you have been uncompassionate to those around you, but Black Jack showed that everyone needs compassion for their pokemon. He also helped you to show everyone that you’re not a bad person anymore.”
“Actually,” Black Jack replied. “We were finishing off what we started the other day. And judging from your Gardevior’s face, Cassandra, this battle has not ended yet. Might as well leave it for another time.”

Black Jack called back his Nidoking and congratulated it. He was about to leave the gym, but Cassandra called him back. “Wait, Black Jack. What about the badge?”

She showed him the Stone Badge. “If you take this,” she said. “It’ll take you one step closer to the Hoenn League.”
“But I’ve already got eight different Hoenn League gym badges,” Black Jack. “A long time ago.”
“Take it, a badge is a badge. Just a reminder of our battle.”

Black Jack took the Stone badge and was about to leave but Cassandra stopped him again. “Black Jack!”
“Yeah?” Black Jack replied.
“Don’t tell Gardevior about it. She’ll get mad at me.”

Black Jack gave a small laugh as he left the Rustboro gym and the city itself.

Elsewhere, not far from the gym, Seed was standing on a lamppost, thinking some deep thoughts as he looked at Black Jack riding his motorcycle. “Black Jack is quite an extraordinary individual,” he said to himself.
