part 6: The human Ditto
by Xen(short for Xenophon)
Ash, Pikachu, and Ditto where in forest going back to
Scars place so Ash can use the holding on his other pokemon. Ash was checking a map
Pikachu was resting in the grass while Ditto was morphed as Ash and was also looking at
the map. "Lets see. I think were about here so Scars place is about a day away
"You seem to care a lot about your pokemon
Ash." Ditto said.
"Yah Ditto there my friends. If I continue my
journey with out my friends it wouldnt be good journey."
"But what about Charizard Ash. He wont even
listen to you anymore." Pikachu said.
"I know Pikachu, but Ill still try to fight
him to understand why he wont listen to me."
"That sounds very foolish to try such a
"Thats why Ill fight Charizard last so
I can learn to fight better." The three are silent for a while. Ash speaks first.
"Ditto I have something to ask you."
"What is it Ash."
"Since I captured you, youve mostly spend
most of the time in a human form. I like to know why you morph into a human so
often?" Pikachu looked up since he was wondering the same thing to."
"Well its that I dont want to be a
"That doesnt make sense you are a
"I know that. Its just that I really
dont like being a pokemon. Ever since I was a young Ditto I hated being a pokemon,
to be captured by some kid and to be used only when necessary and then put into a ball all
"Yah that why I never wanted to kept in a pokeball
ether." Pikachu said.
"Gee I never thought that a pokemon hated a being
a pokemon so much."
"That is why I learned to morph myself into a
human shape so that I could live free of worry of being captured."
"But Im your owner know so do you hate me
for keeping you." Ash looked sad that his pokemon could hate him.
"No Ash I dont hate you. You are different
then other trainers. You truly care about a pokemons feelings and that you resept my wish
of being allowed to be kept out of a pokeball."
"But when you turn human you look just like me, if
you really wanted to be a human you chose your own image."
"That Ash is the problem of a Ditto. I can only
shape myself as a exact copy of a object."
"Say Ash remember Dulpitca and her Ditto."
"Who is Dulpitca?"
"She was a trainer that had a Ditto also. She had
a problem with the fact that her Ditto couldnt transform completely. I wonder if she
still does her shows."
"What does she do in these shows."
"Oh she imitates pokemon and her Ditto transforms
into other pokemon in the audience."
"A human that imitates pokemon. And Im a
pokemon that imitates humans. I like to meet her sometime if we get the chance."
"Sure thing Ditto, but first we got to go to and
get my other pokemon back."
Ash arrived at Scars place the next day. Ash found Scar cleaning up the place which
looked like a pigs sty. "Gee what happened here? It looks like a Muk trashed
the place." Ash said.
Scar picks up a bucket form the ground. "Well it
did. Your Muk to be precise. It came in here earlier and looked what happened." Scar
looks at Ash then looks confused. "Um Ash what happened here." Scar was
referring to Ditto which looked like Ash.
"Oh. I captured a Ditto in my travels. He likes to
look human so he looks like a clone of me."
"I see. Say Ash, why are you back so soon. I
thought you where still looking for more pokemon."
"I was but I came back so I could you the holding
on my other pokemon first. I want them to be with me on my journey. The pokemon Ive
been traveling with are my friends, for me to just leave them here was like leaving apart
of me behind. I just couldnt leave them here."
"Ash you cant believe me on how important to
what you just said meant. It proves that you are a true master. Because you care about
your pokemon and you dont wish to leave them behind proves that you are truly the a
"Me a leader?" Ash was confused by Scar
calling him a leader.
"Yes Ash a leader. Not only will you lead your
pokemon to victory, but you will lead your friends on the journey to put the holding back
in place as the honorable way it once was." Just then the phone rang. "Ill
get that." Scar goes and answer the phone. A few minuteness later Scar comes back
with a worried look on his face.
"What is it Scar?" Ash asked Scar.
"Misty was on the phone. She called saying that
she decided to find a group of crooks doing some illegal dumping. Ash I told Misty that
you are going to meet her at the pokemon center in Shoreside town. Looks like youll
have to wait a while longer before you can reclaim your pokemon."
"Cant Misty handle the job herself."
"No! Something might happen if she does this
herself. I would go to, but I need to take care of the others pokemon and wait to
see if anyone else returns."
"Okay Ill go I hope Misty doesnt do
anything before I get there."
"Dont worry I told her not to anything till
you get there but I still want you to hurry anyway."
"OK Im of. Pikachu Ditto lets go." Scar
watches as Ash, Pikachu, and Ditto go leave toward the shore where Misty went.
