The US Journey
part 7: The Joys of Waiting (Not the nurse)
When we last left off our heroes they won there first
battle against team rocket and Jessie and James get some new pokemon.
"So where are we heading again?" Misty
asked the others.
"To the Illusion gym in Hollywood. Deborah Oak
said that was the first gym and is closest to where we are." Ash said to Misty.
"Um say Dulpica?" James said.
"Dont you have to go to your agent?"
"Oh dont worry. He isnt expecting me
for a least two days and anyway I want to see Ash fight at the gym. Its going to be
"Thank you Dulpica. Its nice to know
people respect me."
"No its not that. I just want to see your
face when you face the gym leader." Ash sweat dropped.
"What, do you know something about this
gym." Misty asked trying to now more.
"I do in fact. My cousin works there or he did
till he took over the house of imate. The only thing I can tell you that the Illusion gym
doubles as a stage for magicians, entertainers, and a night club." (This is a hint)
"Why is it that everyone I know have a relative
here in the US. Does anyone else have relatives we should know about now?" Misty and
James nod no. Jessie just ignored the question because she was driving.
"Well where here." Jessie said as she
parked in front of a large building. The building was a two story yellow building with the
front placed with mirrors and two magic wands above the door.
"Wow Im impressed. This Gym sure knows how
to decorate." James said as he stared in wonder.
"I didnt now they made mirrors that
size." Misty said as she looked at the tall mirrors.
"James, when we get back remind me to get some of these for the mansion." Jessie
said as she thought what she could do with mirrors that size.
"OK enough with the mirrors lets go in."
Ash walked up to the entrance, but was stopped by a women in a ticket booth.
"And where do you think your going?" The
"Im going inside to challenge the gym
"Sorry but youll have to wait till tomorrow."
"The gym half is closed till tomorrow. The gym
can only be challenge form nine till five."
"What time is it."
"Eight thirty." James said as he checked his watch.
"You can stay in the hotel across the street
"OK thanks." Ash and company went to the
hotel where they got some rooms. At the room Jessie and Misty got into a little agreement.
"What do you mean I have no style." Misty
"What I said is what I mean that it
wouldnt hurt to wear something different once in a while."
"Thats true. It couldnt hurt to
change our outfit." James said pointing at her outfit.
"There right Misty. You really should of changed
your looks a little." Ash said agreeing with the others. Everyone in the group had
changed their outfits except Misty. The only difference was that she let her hair grow out
and put it into a proper ponytail. Misty looked over the other and was right. James was
dressed in a black dress pants and blue shirt with a red vest (not like Brocks but
the one he wears in the series). Jessie was in a tan pants and a white blouse. Even
Ashs changed his shirt form the generic black shirt to one with a league symbol of a
pokemon master and his jacket just being a longer version of his old one.
"I know what." Jessie said as she patted
Misty on the back. "Will go shopping tomorrow and find something better."
"But what the gym." James asked.
"Well me and Misty can go shopping while you and
Ash go get the badge."
"OK then. Now can we all get some sleep."
Ash said going to his rooms
"Pika." The little pokemon followed his
master who was tried as well. Times passes and we find Ash, James, Dulpica, and Pikachu in
front of the gym.
"Well lets go in." Ash said as he and the
others walked inside in the gym. Inside the gym it looked like a theater/dance hall.
"Is anybody here." A screen of smoke appears.
"Ahh that being back memories." James said
with a sigh. Ash was going to say something but thought against it. When the smoke
vanished a lone figure stood.
"Why have you come to the gym of illusion!"
The figure said. The figure looked to be about seventeen and his outfit was that of
"I came here to challenge the gym leader for
"Well you have to face me first if you wish to
meet the masters of illusion."
"Bring it on."

"Whats that?" Ash points Dexter at
the pokemon. The pokemon was about waist height and its skin was a dark gray. It
wore the top of a magician outfit and a cape that went down to its ankles. On
its head was a top hat that went over its head and its eyes where shown
though the hat. In its hand it held a magicians wand.

Magimn: flame thrower-miss
Pikachu: thunder shock-Magimn fainted.
"That cant be! My Magimn couldnt be
defeated so easily." The magician was in shock.
"Thats why you your still a trainer Isaac.
Cant you see that is no ordinary Pikachu, because that is no ordinary trainer.
Im I right Mr. Ketchum." A voice said from behind Ash. The three turned around
to see a man standing behind them. The man was young looking and had dressed also in a
magician outfit minus the hat and cape. "My name is Mat Mirror. I am the gym leader
of Illusions. Do you wish to fight me former pokemon master?"
"Well then." Mat clapped his hands and Mat
and Isaac switched places. The group looked confused. "I simple trick compared to
what going to happen next. Now prepare to fight."
