Journey To Be The Best Pokemon Master - Rewrite @badboy1992
Chapter 14

Chapter 14

Ash and his friends are traveling on a pathway through some mountains to get to the Fuchsia Gym. But it appears that they are lost again.

"Did we really get lost again," asked Ash, as he was walking through the forest?

"I guess we did," replied Brock as he looked at the map in his hands.

"Brock, I don't won't to offend you or anything, but you must stop using that map, and start looking at Ash's Pokedex," said Misty, since she was getting tired of being lost all the time.

"Misty is right Brock," said Ash. "I mean this is getting really old."

Brock sighed as he heard what Ash and Misty told him and replied. "Maybe you are right, I should stop using this map."

"Good, now let's see where we are," said Ash, and pulled out his Pokedex. But just as he was about to look at it, there was a big explosion several hundred meters from them.

"What is that," yelled Misty as she looked at the large dust cloud that appeared after the explosion?

"Let's go and see," said Ash, and they all run to see what that explosion was.

After a few minutes of running they came across a truck-filled road. It appears that all of them have had an accident and flipped over next to the road and on the road.

Just as they were to go and check if there are any injured people, a man came out of one of the trucks.

"God damn it, I can't take it anymore," screamed the man! "Those Diglett are going to be the death of me!"

"Hey sir are you Ok," asked Misty as she and the others went closer to him?

"No! I'm not Ok," he yelled, which caused Misty to take a step back!

"Will you please calm down, and tell us what happened," said Ash, with narrowed eyes, apparently he doesn't like when someone is yelling at Misty.

The man looked at Ash, and then he took a step back when he saw Ash's narrowed eyes. But he quickly pulled himself together and sighed.

"I'm construction worker who is supposed to build a Dam here, but because of those Diglett I can't," the man said. "They are ruining everything, and are preventing us from working."

"That is strange," said Brock. "Why would they do that? Diglett don't normally do that kind of stuff."

"I don't care why they are doing this, but it has to stop," the man yelled. "And we already called the best trainers from around here to came and exterminate this Diglett. Whoever does it will get a reward of a week stay at the Giva hot springs resort."

And then there was a beeping of a car that was approaching them. And behind a car a few busses are coming as well. "Well, well, would you look who we have here," said a person who came from the car after it stopped?

Ash and the others looked back and saw Gary Oak standing next to his convertible, and a bunch of cheerleaders inside of it.

"Gary, what are you doing here," asked Ash?

"I was called to deal with some problem that has appeared here," replied Gary, and then asked. "But what are you doing here? I thought that only the best trainers are called and you are not one of them."

Ash didn't say anything, and only raised his eyebrow.

"Hey Ash, who is this guy," asked Misty?

"This is Gary Oak, he is Professor Oak's grandson, and we've known each other since we were little."

"Hey Ash, is that you," the group suddenly heard?

When they looked at who called Ash they saw a girl around their age, with a long black hair and a pink hat on her head, dressed in a simple shirt and a short skirt.

"Leaf, it's good to see you again," said Ash, and then he almost fell to the ground because Leaf run and jumped at him to give him a hug.

"Wow, if I didn't know any better I'd say that you missed me a lot," teased Ash while being held tightly by Leaf, who blushed at his teasing, and let him go.

"I was worried about you ever since I heard what happened in Saffron City with you and Team Rocket," shouted Leaf, while pointing a finger at Ash.

"Cough, Cough, excuse me but can we get back to the reason you are all here," asked the man?

"Oh I'm sorry, please continue," said Leaf.

"Ok listen up," shouted the man to get everyone's attention!

"We are supposed to be building a dam here, but because of those Diglett, we can't. We called you all here so that you can exterminate them, and the one who does it will get a reward of a week stay at the Giva hot springs resort," said the man.

"Don't worry anything, I'll deal with this," announced Gary with a cocky green and puled one of his Poke balls.

"Come on out," Gary said, and then the Pokémon started to come out of the Poke Ball, but then suddenly he returned before it can fully manifest.

"What the," exclaimed Gary after seeing his Pokémon not came out of its Poke Ball?

Then suddenly Diglett came out of the ground and took Gary's Poke Ball that was lying on the ground, and returned it to him.

"Thank you very much," thanked Gary with a smile and while rubbing the back of his head.

"Wait, what is going on here," he suddenly yelled, and then pulled his other Poke ball, but the same thing happened? His Pokémon refused to come out.

Then all the other trainers, called their Pokémon, but they all refused to came out. A bunch of Diglett came out of the holes in the ground and returned each Poke Ball to its trainer. At this point everyone was wandering what the hell is going on here.

Seeing that this is not working, the man started crying in rage and went to attack the Diglett by himself, but was failing miserably.

Ash then took things in his own hands, and went closer to one of the Diglett, and kneeled down in front of it. "Can you tell me why you and the other Diglett are preventing this people to build a Dam here," asked Ash?

At this point everyone was looking at him and wondered what he is doing.

"Dig Diglett Dig Diglett," said Diglett and Ash only nodded his head.

"Thank you for telling me that, and don't worry, I'll take care of everything," said Ash and patted Diglett on the head, who smiled in return.

Ash then stood up and went back in front of everyone.

"You should all give up, your Pokémon won't help you," he said to all trainers, which confused them.

"And you should stop building a Dam, because if you do, you will destroy their home," Ash said to the man.

"What are you talking about Ashy boy," asked Gary?

"A little away from here is the place were all these Diglett live, and are calling their home. They have worked hard to build this whole place, and if this Dam is built, this entire place will be flooded and everything will be ruined," Ash explained, much to the surprise of everyone.

"And do you have any proof of this, or are we just supposed to believe that you understood what that Diglett said," asked the man?

"I can use Aura, and because of that I'm able to understand what Pokémon are saying," said Ash. "But if you want a proof, then come on follow me."

Ash then turned around and started walking away, and everyone started to follow after him. About five minutes later they all came to an amazing sight.

They saw Diglett and Dugtrio working together and planting the small trees in the ground. It appears that Ash was right and that this entire forest was built by them.

"Do you understand now," asked Ash as he looked at the man who had his head bowed down? "If you build the Dam everything here will be gone."

"I see now. I will stop building this Dam, it's not worth destroying all this," the man said, which brought a smile on Ash's and everyone else's face.

"So that must be why everyone's Pokémon refused to came out of their Poke Ball's," stated Leaf. "They must have known about this."

"Yes, that is exactly why," confirmed Ash.

"Well then I'm out here, see you," said Gary, and went to his convertible and his cheerleaders drove him away.

Right after him, all the other trainers went back to the bus, and they left as well. The only ones left are Ash, Brock, Misty and Leaf.

"Well, now that the mystery is over, we can catch up a little can't we Ash," said Leaf.

"Yes we can," replied Ash. "Come on, let's go to the hot spring that is close bye." And then everyone went to the hot spring.


Ash and the others spent the rest of the day relaxing in the hot springs. Ash told Leaf about his encounter with Team Rocket, and what really happened, and she told him about her journey so far. Leaf's goal is to complete Pokedex, and to catch as many Pokémon as she can, while on her journey.

It was also discovered that it was Leaf's Bulbasaur, who defeated Ra while he was still with Damian, and Leaf was really sorry because of what happened.

At the end of the day they all went to have some sleep, and in the morning they will all go to Fuchsia gym. Leaf will go with them, because she wanted to travel with Ash for a little.


We are finally here, said Misty with a sigh.

The group has left hot spring this morning, and was going through the forest most of the day trying to find the gym. And now that they managed to find it after almost the entire day of searching through the forest, they were standing in front of an old looking building, built in a Japanese style.

"Yeah we are here. Let's go inside and find the gym leader," said Ash, and went ahead with the others behind him.

"I wasn't expecting a Japanese style building to be a gym, and it was in the middle of nowhere," commented Leaf while she was following Ash.

"Every gym has something different about it, and its look is always based on the type of the gym, or the preferences of gym leader," explained Ash.

"Well that is something I didn't know," said Leaf.

A few minutes later the group entered in to the building and saw that it was mostly plain with nothing much inside of the hall.

They kept walking trying to find a gym leader when a Venonat appeared in front of them, and motioned them to follow him.

Ash noticed something strange about this so he used his Aura, and noticed that there are a lot of traps all over the building. And Venonat is leading them right toward them.

"Wait," called Ash, and everyone stopped and looked at him.

"What's wrong Ash," asked Brock?

"There are traps all over this place, and Venonat is leading us on them," Ash replied.

"Follow me I'll use my Aura to find the safe path," Ash said and started to lead them in the different way than Venonat.

About ten minutes later, they managed to get in a big room that looked like a gym but it was completely empty, well it would be empty if you would ignore two people hiding behind the wall on the other side of the room. But Ash was the only one who did sense them, the others didn't.

Ash then walked forward and shouted. "I'm Ash Ketchum, and I challenge you to a gym battle!"

Misty, Brock and Leaf looked at him confused because he was seemingly shouting at no one.

"Hey Ash, there is nobody here, so who are you challenging," asked Leaf?

"There are two people over there behind that wall," Ash said with a smirk, and pointed at the wall on the other side of the room.

Suddenly, from out of nowhere, two people appeared in front of them all. One was a man and the other was a girl a little older than they were, and they were both dressed in a ninja outfit.

"How did you now we were there," asked he man, suddenly very interested in Ash?

"I'm an Aura user, I could sense that you were there," replied Ash.

"Well then, if you are here for a gym battle then I accept your challenge. My name is Koga, and this is my younger sister Aya," said Koga. "Now follow me."

Then they all went outside of the building and went in the open. When they got were Koga was leading them they all saw a battlefield in the middle of the back yard.

Ash then stood on one side of the field, and Koga went to the other. Aya would be the referee, so she stood outside of the field, and Ash's friends just stood in the back, and watched.

"Good luck Ash," said both Misty and Leaf, before they looked at each other, and smiled.

"This will be a two-on-two battle between the challenger Ash and Fuchsia City gym leader Koga. The first trainer to lose both Pokémon loses. The gym leader choses first," announced the referee.

"Venomoth, I chose you," said Koga and released his first Pokémon, Venomoth!

"Bulbasaur you are up," called Ash, and his Bulbasaur appeared from his Poke Ball ready for battle.

"BEGIN!" Yelled the referee.

"Venomoth use Stun Spore," said Koga.

Venomoth started flapping its wings and an orange powder come out of them, and went straight at Bulbasaur

"Bulbasaur use Protect," said Ash, and Bulbasaur used Protect, which stopped Stun Spore before it can reach him.

"Now use Razor Leaf," said Ash, after which Bulbasaur fired a storm of Leaf's at Venomoth, who wasn't able to dodge them all and was hit with some of Leaf's.

"Venomoth stay strong and use Sleep Powder," said Koga.

Venomoth flaps its wings again, and a light-tan powder come out and went toward Bulbasaur.

"Bulbasaur Leaf Storm," called Ash.

Bulbasaur surrounded himself with a lot of glowing leaves, that he then sent at Sleep Powder, and ended up puling it because of the wind, and went straight at Venomoth, who couldn't do anything and was quickly pulled inside a tornado crated by Leaf Storm mixed with Sleep Powder.

Once the storm let out, Venomoth fell on the ground covered in cuts, and uncounsces.

"Venomoth is unable to battle, the winner is Bulbasaur," announced the referee!

"Good battle Bulbasaur," said Ash, and Bulbasaur just nodded.

"Wow, Ash's Bulbasaur really is strong," commented Leaf while watching. "And what was that move, I've never seen it before?"

"Yes, Ash trains his Pokémon really hard every day," said Misty. "As for that move, it's actually grass type move but it's mostly used by some grass Pokémon from other regions."

"I must ask Ash to teach my Ivysaur that move, it's too good to pass up," said Leaf.

Back with Ash and Koga, Koga has just recalled his Venomoth, and is about to call his next Pokémon.

"That was great battle Ash, but let's see how you do against this Pokémon," said Koga and called out his Golbat.

"Ok, return Bulbasaur," said Ash and returned his Bulbasaur.

"Crobat it's your turn," called Ash and Crobat appeared from his Poke Ball.

"You have a Crobat," said Koga in surprise!

"Yeah. I caught him when he was Golbat, and he was able to evolve about a week ago," replied Ash.

"Are you both ready," asked the referee, and Ash and Koga just nodded?

"Then BEGIN!"

"Golbat use Wing Attack," said Koga.

"Crobat let's show them the real Wing Attack," said Ash.

Gobat's wings glowed white, and he flew at Crobat, whose all four wings also glowed white, and went at Golbat with at least three times greater speed than Golbat.

In a second Crobat was in front of Golbat and started hitting him with his wings. Golbat couldn't even defend himself because Crobat was too fast for him, and after who knows how many hit's, Crobat sent Golbat on the ground.

"Golbat can you stand," asked Koga while looking at his Golbat?

Golbat somehow managed to stand up, and flew back in the air.

"Great, now use Screech," said Koga, and Golbat opened his mouth and released thin yellow circles from its mouth, causing a loud, piercing noise that went at Crobat.

"Crobat finish this off with Air Slash," said Ash, and then Crobat flapped his four wings and sent four slashes that cut clean through the Screech and hit straight at Golbat, which sent it back on the ground, but this time he was unconscious.

"Golbat is unable to battle, the winner is Crobat, and the match goes to the challenger Ash Ketchum," said the referee.

"Golbat return," said Koga and sighed. "You did good Golbat don't worry about anything."

"Great job Crobat, congratulation on you win," said Ash, and Crobat gave a nod in acknowledgment.

"That was a great battle Ash, you are the best trainer I have battled against in a long time," sad Koga after he came closer to Ash.

"Thank you Koga, I always try to do my best and to never let my Pokémon down," replied Ash.

"Here you go Ash, the Soul Badge," said Koga and handed Ash his badge after he pulled it from the scroll.

"That was great Ash, I really didn't think your Pokémon are so powerful," said Leaf after she, Misty and Brock came in front of him.

"Why are you so surprised, I do train my Pokémon really hard," asked Ash?

"I'm surprised because you have only been trainer for a few months, and your Pokémon are already this strong," Leaf replied.

"As I said, I train them really hard," said Ash.

After that Ash and the others said good bye to Koga and his sister Aya and left the gym.
