Chapter 18

After Ash and the others left Grampa Canyon they went in the small town on the sea, where they boarded a ship that was going directly at Cinnabar Island.

It took about two days to get there, and now they are all walking on the beach on Cinnabar Island.

"Where are we going first Ash," asked Misty?

"We will first go to the Pokémon Lab and leave our fossil's there, and after that we should go to the Pokémon center to get rooms for tonight, since we will be staying here for a day or two," replied Ash.

"Ok then, let's go," said Leaf.

The group then went to the Pokémon lab and left all of the fossils they found in Grampa Canyon, to be revived. They were told to come back tomorrow and pick up their new Pokémon.

After that the group went to the Pokémon center only to find out that the place was full of tourists, and there are no rooms available. The same happened in every other hotel they went at. All of them were full.

"Well this sucks," said Misty. "What are we going to do now?"

"We can always camp out," suggested Brock. "It's not like it would be anything new after all this time we were traveling, and sleeping in forests."

"I know, but I was really hoping to sleep in a nice bad and not on the ground," whined Misty!

"Excuse me kid's, but you seem to have some problems," said someone from behind them, which made them all turn back and look at who was talking to them. It was an old looking man, with a long hair, a big mustache and wearing sun glasses.

"Who are you," asked Brock?

"Oh, I was just passing by and heard what you were talking about," said the man. "You seem to be out of luck in finding rooms, am I right?"

"Yeah we are. Everything is full, there is not a single empty room on the entire island," replied Leaf.

"Actually, there is," said the man, and pulled out a Visit Card and handed it to Leaf.

"Big Riddle Inn, where is this place," asked Misty after she read what was written on the card?

"It is an Inn I'm running, and its location is in the forest a little away from here," replied the man.

"Oh, I see," said Leaf. "Well we should probably go, it's not like we have any other option."

"I agree, I don't want to sleep on the ground again," said Misty.

"Ok then let's go," said Ash, and then they all started following the guy who gave them Visit Card.

Ash then went next to the guy and asked. "You wouldn't happen to know where the gym is would you."

"You just walked past it," replied the man, and then everyone turned back and looked at the ruined building next to the road.

"That is a gym. But what happened to it," asked Brock?

"The gym leader Blaine got tired of battling against tourists that come to this place, so he just destroyed the gym and walked away," replied the man.

"What do you mean he just destroyed the gym and walked away," asked Misty?

"Like I said, he got tired of being challenged by tourists and not real trainers and just left. This place has been overrun by god damned tourist's for over a decade now, because of the hot springs, so no one really comes here to battle, all of the people here now are tourists," said the man.

Everyone looked at the man in disbelief, and then Ash said. "Look, I know that there is a gym here because I did some research before I started my journey, and I got information that there is a RUNNIG gym on Cinnabar Island, and NOT a destroyed one."

The man looked at Ash, and then smirked once he saw his expression. It was an expression of a strong wiled trainer who won't let anything get in his way to achieve his goal in life.

"You know what kid, I like you. You seem like a good trainer so I'll tell you this. The gym leader Blaine did destroy this gym, but he has built a new one somewhere on the Island, and will only accept a battle with a trainer he deems worthy," said the man.

"And why didn't you tell us that right away," asked Misty, with narrowed eyes?

"Because he didn't think I'm worthy of challenging him," said Ash and surprised everyone by saying "HIM".

"What do you mean "him" Ash," asked Leaf, while the man looked at Ash?

"This guy is Blaine, the gym leader of Cinnabar Island gym," replied Ash, and their eyes then widened.

"How did you figure it out kid," asked Blane?

"I read your mind," Ash simply replied, and caused Blaine's eyes to go in his forehead from surprise.

"What are you talking about, how did you read my mind," asked Blaine?

"I'm an Aura and Psychic user, something like reading people's minds is very easy for me," replied Ash. "Of course, I have to focus to do it, so I don't read everyone's minds."

"You really are one interesting kid you know that right," said Blaine, and then took of his wig and fake mustache and revealed a man in his sixties with almost bald head.

"If you say so," shrugged Ash.

"When exactly did you read my mind," asked Blaine?

"After I told you that I know that there is a running gm here and not a destroyed one," replied Ash.

When he heard that, Blaine smirked and said. "Here's the deal kid, I'll give you a riddle, and you will have to solve it if you want to find my gym," said Blaine.

"I already know where it is," said Ash, which made Blaine drop on the floor anime style while crying, and the others just laughed at his misery.

After a few minutes of crying, Blaine got up and said. "Ok then let's go and have a battle."

"Lead the way," said Ash, and then he and the others went after Blaine.


"I cannot believe that you have built a gym on top of a volcano," said Misty, while she, Leaf and Brock were staring at the field build on top of the Volcano, while Ash, Lucario and Pikachu were just standing there like it was nothing special.

"Well I think it's a perfect place for a fire type gym," said Blaine, and then went and stood on the other side of the field, while Ash stood on the challenger's side.

"Do you have a referee," asked Ash, when he realized that there is no one coming to be the referee of this match?

"No, I don't really think it's necessary in a battle like this, we both know what and when to do," replied Blaine.

"Ok then, what are the rules," asked Ash?

"Three on three, we battle until one of us losses all of his Pokémon," said Blaine, and Ash simply nodded.

"Ok then let's do this," said Blaine and called his first Pokémon!

"Ninetails come to battle," said Blaine and let his first Pokémon from its Poke Ball.

"Squirtle come on out," Ash called his Squirtle, who came out of his Poke Ball and stared at Ninetails.

"If you think that you will have the advantage because you are using water type, then you are making a mistake," said Blaine.

"I know I don't have any advantage, and I'm not using Squirtle because of him being water type, I'm using him because he didn't have very much strong opponents and I want to see how he will do here," replied Ash.

"Ok let's see what you've got," said Blaine!

"Ninetails use Fire Spin," said Blaine!

"Squirtle counter it with Hydro Pump," said Ash.

Ninetails then fired a big fire attack from its mouth that then started spinning and went straight at Squirtle, who then took a deep breath and fired Hydro Pump, which then collided with Fire Spin, and started to push at it.

Both Pokémon were still trying to overpower one another even after a few second of using their attacks without stopping, and it appears that Hydro Pump was gaining on Fire Spin, and after a few more seconds it pushed it back completely and struck at Ninetails which made it cry in pain, and roll backwards.

"Ninetails are you Ok," yelled Blaine?

Ninetails started to stand up, but was having some trouble because of a super effective attack, but in the end managed to stand up.

"Great Ninetails, now use Flamethrower and then follow it up with Quick Attack," said Blaine, and the Ninetails breathed out a powerful Flamethrower at Squirtle.

"Squirtle Protect and then use Scull Bash," said Ash!

When the Flamethrower hit at Squirtle it caused a large explosion and then smoke covered the entire field, blocking everyone's view.

"Now Squirtle," yelled Ash, and then Squirtle flew from inside of the smoke and hit Ninetails with his head, which sent Ninetails back toward Blaine.

"No, Ninetails," shouted Blaine seeing his Ninetails in trouble!

"Now finish it up with Ice Beam," said Ash, after which Squirtle blew a large Ice Beam at Ninetails who couldn't do anything and got hit which incased it in Ice, and then fell unconscious.

"Great job Squirtle," said Ash, and Squirtle just nodded with a smile.

"Ninetails return," said Blaine, and then returned his Pokémon!

"That was a great match Ash, and that Squirtle of yours really is strong. Congratulation on training him so well," said Blaine.

"Thank you, Blaine," said Ash.

"Arcanine you are next," said Blaine and his Arcanine came out of his Poke ball and looked at Squirtle.

"Are you up for this Squirtle," asked Ash, and Squirtle nodded?

"Ok then let's go," said Ash!

"Arcanine, Fire Blast," called Blaine his first move!

"Squirtle use Ice Beam," said Ash.

Arcanine then spited flames from its mouth that then took some sort of shape and headed at Squirtle, who countered it with his most powerful Ice Beam, which than collided with Fire Blast, but after a few seconds Fire blast overpowered Squirtle's Ice Beam and headed straight for him.

"Withdraw, now," yelled Ash, and Squirtle barely managed to pull his body inside of his shell, which was then hit by a Fire Blast.

Once the attack stopped, Squirtle came out of his shell looking quite burned on several paces on his body and appeared to be out of breath.

"Squirtle are you Ok," asked Ash?

Squirtle nodded, but Ash could see that he was just trying to act taught, and is in serious pain from the burns.

"Ok then Squirtle use Hydro Pump," said Ash, and Squirtle fired anther powerful water attack at Arcanine.

"Arcanine use Flamethrower to counter it," said Blaine, and after that Flamethrower came out of Arcanine's mouth, and meat with Hydro Pump in the middle of the field, then two attacks started pushing at each other.

After a few seconds Hydro pump overpowered Flamethrower and hit Arcanine who cried in pain from being hit by water attack.

"Wow, that Squirtle is more powerful than I thought," said Blaine after Squirtle's Hydro Pump managed to overpower Arcanine's Flamethrower, and caused him damage.

Arcanine then stood up and looked at Squirtle who was looking back at him.

"Arcanine Flame Charge now," said Blaine.

"Squirtle counter it with Aqua Jet," said Ash.

Arcanine then surrounded himself in orange and red flames and run straight at Squirtle, who surrounded himself in water, and flew at Arcanine.

They both meat in the middle and started pushing at one another trying to overpower the opponent. Arcanine was physically more powerful and bigger, but Squirtle's attack had the advantage over fire.

They were pushing at each other for a full minute. Before the explosion happened that sent both Pokémon flying back toward their trainers.

When they landed on the floor, it showed that both of them were unconscious, much to Blaine's surprise because he thought that Arcanine's raw power would be enough to take Squirtle out.

"Well, I guess this round is a tie," said Ash and Blaine agreed. Both of them then returned their Pokémon and took another Poke Ball's.

"You did great until now Ash, but let's see you against my most powerful Pokémon," said Blaine and called out his Magmar.

"Vaporeon came on out," said Ash and his Vaporeon came out of her Poke Ball ready for her first gym battle.

"Are you ready Vaporeon, this will be your first gym battle," asked Ash, and Vaporeon nodded her head not taking her eyes off of Magmar. She could feel his power and knows that his powerful, but she also knows that she can win this. She won't lose in her first battle and disappoint Ash after everything he did for her and her family.

"You can have the first move Ash," said Blaine while smirking.

"Vaporeon use Rain Dance," said Ash and Blaine's eyes shot wide open, because this was not one of the moves he was expecting.

Vaporeon's eyes glowed blue for a moment, and then clouds appeared above the top of the volcano, and rain started to fall on the field.

"Great now use Hydro Pump," said Ash, and Vaporeon shot a giant beam of water at Magmar, who was surprised by how big and Powerful that Hydro Pump was.

"Magmar quickly counter it with Fire Blast," yelled Blaine who was just as surprised as Magmar.

Magmar then quickly blew a powerful fire attack, which then collided with Vaporeon's attack, but after a few seconds, much to Blaine's and Magmar's surprise Hydro Pump broke throw Fire Blast and hit directly at Magmar, who screamed in pain, because of a unimaginably powerful Hydro Pump.

"Great Vaporeon that was perfect," praised Ash and Vaporeon smiled because her trainer was happy.

"Magmar are you ok, can you get up," shouted Blaine not believing what happened.

Magmar stood up, but his legs were actually shaking and he was barely standing on them.

"This is bad, that Hydro Pump injured him much more than I thought possible, and this rain is only making it worse," thought Blaine, not liking the odds now.

"Magmar use Flamethrower and then follow it up with Fire Punch," yelled Blaine!

"Vaporeon counter it with Water Gun, and then use Blizzard," said Ash.

Magmar blew a Flamethrower at Vaporeon, who countered it with Water Gun, that broke throw Flamethrower and hit at Magmar again, and sent him back near Blaine.

Vaporeon then glowed blue and a Rain that was falling quickly turned into a Blizzard that started to freeze the field and even culled down lava that was beneath the field, which Blaine and Magmar who was slowly standing up, couldn't believe happening.

"Vaporeon finish this battle with Ice Beam," said Ash, after which Vaporeon blew an Ice Beam, that was powered up because of Rain Dance and Blizzard, and went straight at Magmar who couldn't do anything, and was blown away all the way on the other side of the volcano and collided with the wall of the volcano, which freeze Magmar, that entire side of the wall, and big part of the field. Lava beneath the field was already frozen.

Blaine looked around and felt like he was heaving heart attack because of what he just witnessed. The volcano was completely frozen by a simple Pokémon like Vaporeon. That shouldn't be possible. He completely ignored the fact that his Magmar was defeated.

"Well I guess we win," said Ash, and brought back Blaine to reality, who just nodded and returned his Magmar.

"Great battle Ash," said Blaine as he came closer to Ash. "I just can't believe how powerful your Pokémon are, especially this Vaporeon."

"Thanks' Blaine, but Vaporeon and Squirtle are almost equal in power, Vaporeon only seemed so powerful because Rain Dance was increasing the power of her water type attacks, and even overpowered the Blizzard," replied Ash.

"Is that so? Maybe I should have my Pokémon learn Sunny Day," Blaine commented.

"Well anyway, here is you badge Ash, you really deserve it," said Blaine, and handed to Ash his final gym badge. "I just wish there were more trainers like you, who actually know what they are doing."

"Thanks Blaine, and I'm sure there are other trainers like me somewhere out there," replied Ash.

"Congratulations Ash, that was amazing battle," said Brock.

Misty then ran in front of Ash and almost got in his face. "You have to help me teach all my water Pokémon Rain Dance," she shouted while having her eyes sparkling. "Will you help me Ash?"

Ash looked at Misty, whose face was less than an inch away from his, and decided to tease her a little.

He then moved his mouth next to her ear, and whispered. "Don't worry Misty, I'll help you with anything you want," and then he nibbled on her ear a little, which caused Misty's whole body to turn as red as cherry and she then passed out, with a little blood flowing down her nose. Ash just smirked at this, while the other humans and Pokémon's that saw this, had their jaws on the floor, because they couldn't believe what Ash just did to Misty.

Ash then bent down and picked Misty in his arms and said. "Come on, let's go and see that Inn that we will be spending the night at."

Brock, Leaf and Blaine pulled themselves together and went after Ash along with Ash's Lucario, Pikachu and Vaporeon, who were smirking at Ash.
