The US Journey
part 4: New friends, New foes, New rival.
"So This van is ours." Ash said eyeing
their new ride. The van was black and quite large.
"Yes it is. And of course its full of
extras features." James opens the van to reveal a large interior.
"What are those machines for?" Misty asked
pointing to a machine on the right side of the van. The machine was in two parts. One part
had a small screen and the other had buttons and dials and on top had a little area that
looked like it could hold a pokeball.
"That one with the screen is a pokemon
"Whats a pokemon radar?" Ash asked.
"A pokemon radar is a device which can find a
pokemon within a 100 foot radius. When we where in team rocket we used this to track
"You mean you tracked us with this." Ash
said examining the machine.
"Like you think we actually followed you
"Well then what this do."
"We also have AC, power steering, and a lot of
extra features in this van."
"So what do we do now?" Misty asked.
"First we have to go to Prof. Oaks niece
to drop off my pokemon."
"Say can I come too?" Duplica asked.
"Why do you want to come." Jessie asked.
"Well I need to get to my new agent and I need a
ride. So can you just drop me off there?" Duplica says acting as cute as possible.
"Well I dont see what harm there could be
in that. You can come, but first we have to drop off the pokemon." Ash said.
"Okay everybody in." Jessie said as she
hopped in the drivers chair.
About a hour later Ash and crew reached the address
of Prof. Oak nice. Ash walked up to door and knocked. The women that opened the door
looked to be in her mid thirties. "Hello you be Ash. Im Prof. Oaks Niece
Deborah. Come in." We cut away to inside the house where the rest of the gang is
there. "So Ash you wish compete in the US pokemon league."
"Why yes I do..."
"You can me Deborah. Even though my name is Prof. Oak I prefer being called
"Well OK. Yes I do wish to compete in the
"Well I going to tell you the rules."
"But we already know the league rules." Misty said confused.
"I know, but there are some different then
"Instead of carrying six pokemon, the league
allows you to carry seven. Also Ill warn you that the gym here will be much tougher
then the Indigo Isles."
"How can they that different."
"The gym here are not based on type, but on
fighting styles or themes."
"Like what themes." Ash asked.
"Like my mother would give all my secrets to a
loser like you." A voice said. The group turn to the voice to see a young kid at
about seventeen years of age.
"Roy! You know better then to talk like
that." Deborah sighed. "I like you meet my son Roy Oak. He just started going on
his pokemon journey."
"Arent you a bit old to be starting our
journey." Jessie said eyeing the young kid.
"I would of started sooner, but you have to be
at least sixteen to start collecting badges."
"Does he seem familiar or what." Misty
whispered to Ash. Ash nodded in agreement.
"Well I like to stay and chat, but I got to
become the new pokemon master. Smell ya later." Roy said as he left. "Its
like a younger version of Gary." Ash said.
"Sorry about that. Roy always idolize Gary and
always blamed you for not letting Gary become pokemon master."
"Just what I need. A rival that wants to defeat
me with a vengeance." Ash muttered.
"Thats true. All that Roys ever done
is train his pokemon nonstop for the last few years. He wants to be pokemon master so you
"Dont worry I dont think hell
be that much of a brother to us." James says.
"Well I think we should be heading to the first
gym, so I can get my first badge."
"Wait you forgot something." Deborah
"What is it?" Ash asked.
"I forgot to update your pokedex. Can I have
it." Ash handed over his pokedex and Deborah put it into a machine. A few seconds
later the machine split out the pokedex. "There. Now your pokedex has been updated to
the new species that are found in the US. We found quite a few species but there are rumor
of newer ones undiscovered ."
"Gee thanks." Ash said taking back his
pokedex. The gang headed to front door when they heard a strange sound.
"Whats that sound." Misty said.
"It almost sounds like a missile or
something." James said. Just as James finished saying that the right wall of the
house blew open. The gang ducked form the debris. When the dust settled two figures where
standing at the hole in the wall.
"In the name of team rocket surrender your
pokemon." One of two said.
"Or face the consciences." The other said
"What in the. Team rocket I thought you guys
said that your the only member that escaped jail."
"That cant be the only member that
couldnt of been captured would..."
"Would be me." A third said. A small figure
emerged form the hole.
"Its Meowth." They all said.
