Chapter 100: The Final Showdown Part 1

After a brief day of rest, the day of the finals of the Alola League was underway. Every seat of the stadium was packed as they waited for it to begin.

"I can't believe it. If Ash wins this, he'll be the champion!"

"I know, Lillie. It feels like just yesterday we met each other in Pewter City, huh Misty?"

"Yeah. I can't believe I got so mad about my bike. I could've bought another one!"

"Oh my god, I was the same way! Though mostly I just didn't want to travel alone."

"Really? I didn't even get to meet him before Pikachu fried my bike."

"Well, at least he didn't assault you with a Pokeball when you met!"

The girls were silent for a minute, before having a good laugh.

"Ah, good times."

Max rolled his eyes, leaning back in his chair.

"I'll never understand women."

"You and me both, Max."

In another part of the stands, Burnett sat beside Acerola with little Lei sitting in her lap.

"Are you ready to watch your first Pokemon battle, Lei? I bet you're going to grow up to be a Pokemon Master just like your big brother Ash, huh?"

Lei giggled happily, making his mother smile before she looked around.

"Where's Kukui? He's going to miss the battle."

"Don't worry, I'm sure he'll be here. He's probably just getting some snacks."

"I hope so. He'd hate to miss this."

Molayne, who had been sitting next to them, chuckled to himself.

"Oh, don't you worry. He's watching it, believe you me."

"Huh? What do you mean?"

"Oh, you'll see. You'll see..."

"Oookay."

At last, the two competitors entered the arena, shaking hands as the referee went over the rules.

"Alright you two, here are the rules. This will be a full six-on-six battle, no time limit. Substitutions are allowed, and the battle shall continue until a trainer has no remaining Pokemon left on their side. Each of you will send out your Pokemon at the same time. Are you both ready?"

"Let's do this!"

"Bring it on, kid!"

"Then let the battle begin!"

"Go, Lycanroc!"

"Toucannon, let's go!"

"Lycanroc vs Toucannon, begin!"

"Stealth Rock!"

Before Ash could issue a command, the midday form Lycanroc shot out small rocks from its body, shooting up like weeds to create massive spires around Ash's side of the field.

"Good luck dealing with that!"

"You don't scare me! Hit Lycanroc with Bullet Seed!"

"Dodge, then use Accelrock!"

"Steel Wing!"

Lycanroc jumped out of the way, leaping up to Toucannon's height to try and ram his foe, only for said foe to swipe him away with his wing, sending him crashing to The Masked Royal's field.

"Lycanroc, return! Go, Braviary!"

Ash quirked an eyebrow. Why would he switch? Lycanroc had a type advantage.

"Steel Wing, Toucannon!"

"Whirlwind, Braviary!"

Toucannon soon found himself being pushed back by strong winds, making it impossible to reach his target. He tried to keep moving, but Braviary's wind was too strong, and he was forcefully returned to his Pokeball. Ash groaned in annoyance.

"So that's his plan. You ready, buddy?"

"Pika!"

"Alright. Go, Pikachu!"

Pikachu leapt off Ash's shoulder, cringing as the rocks underneath his feet dug into his skin. Still, he kept a brave face as Braviary flew above him mockingly.

"Pikachu vs Braviary, begin!"

"Whirlwind, again!"

"Hold your ground!"

Pikachu refused to budge, wedging his tail into the ground to act as an anchor. Try as he might, Braviary couldn't shake him, forcing Ash's opponent to switch tactics.

"Aerial Ace, Braviary!"

Ash remained silent as the large Flying type flew right towards Pikachu, who still had his tail wedged into the earth. Just a little bit closer, until...

"Iron Tail, now!"

Just as Braviary was about to strike, Pikachu jumped up, slamming his tail right into the bird's face, disorienting it. This was the opening Ash needed.

"Thunderbolt, now!"

Before Braviary could regain his bearings, he was shocked by a massive bolt of electricity coming from Pikachu, causing him to cry out in pain. After a minute, Pikachu relented as he landed safely on the ground. Braviary faltered for a minute before collapsing on the ground, not able to move another inch.

"Braviary is unable to battle! The round goes to Pikachu!"

"Alright, way to go buddy!"

"Braviary, return! Good job, now get some rest. Go, Snorlax!"

The incredibly rotund Pokemon landed on the arena with a loud THUD! Shaking the stadium as it sniffed the air, uninterested. Ash smiled, remembering his own Snorlax back home.

"Pikachu, you still feeling good to battle?"

"Pika!"

"Sounds good."

"Pikachu vs Snorlax, begin!"

"Alright buddy, hit him with a Volt Tackle!"

Pikachu took off running, ramming into Snorlax at full speed. But the attack did little to hurt Snorlax, the large Pokemon merely yawning before swiping Pikachu away.

"Iron Tail!"

As Pikachu fell off he swung his tail right at the beast's belly, dealing more damage but still doing little to whittle him down.

"Bulldoze, Snorlax!"

At last the giant stumbled to his feet, jumping up and down to create shockwaves to knock Pikachu off his feet. Try as he might, Pikachu could barely keep on his feet.

"Pikachu, jump and use Thunderbolt on the ground!"

Once the shaking started to relent, Pikachu jumped, using the Thunderbolt to propel himself into the air. Seeing that his enemy was no longer within his line of sight, Snorlax looked around in confusion, trying to find him.

"Pikachu, Electroweb!"

Snorlax looked up just in time to get caught in the web, struggling to break free as Pikachu latched onto him.

"Spark, Pikachu!"

While Snorlax tried to throw the rodent off, Pikachu unleashed all of the electricity he had built up in him, creating a small explosion that sent shockwaves through the arena, even knocking the trainers off their feet. When the dust had settled, Snorlax was charred but still standing. But everyone was more focused on something else. As The Masked Royal climbed back up to his feet, his torn mask slipped off, revealing his identity to be...

"Professor Kukui?!"
