Well cause it is fucking cold in my region, Satoshi and the gang heading for Snowpoint and I just beat Suzuna/Candice in Platinum I got the Idea for this. It is one of my slightly better works and features PearlShipping and a new Shipping I myself came up and named it BlizzardShipping (Satoshi and Suzuna/Candice) because the circumstances it started but read for your own.
As our heroes continue to snowpoint through a snowy and shivering cold street they take a break to have some fun. While Satoshi and Hikari happily playing in the snow and making a snowball fight something seems to bother Takeshi. “Something is wrong today I can feel it I just don’t know what.”
Satoshi turns in Takeshis direction cause he wants him to join and right in this moment a cold snowball lands in his neck and Hikari laughs. “Haha, I got you and right in your neck this really was a good one hihihi… Try to hit me if you can but I really doubt this.”
Satoshis face is graced with a conspiratorial smile. “Ha do you really think I would miss you, this is very funny. Think again but soon you will feel it anyway so there actually is no need for you to think about it.”
While he talks about this he grabs in the snow drift on his right and takes a big hand of snow to form a perfect ball. Then he throws it and it hits right in Hikaris face which gives her a dumb look. “Hah, didn’t I tell you, bulls eye I hit you perfect and direct in ya face you look really funny now, haaaaaaahah.”
Hikari gots angry about Satoshi making fun of her and her face turns red while the snow melts away. “Ohhhhhhhh Satosh, I swear you will regret this.” And so their fight continues but after a while they make a break cause Takeshi still seems concerned.
“Come on Takeshi, join us or to be exact me and my Pokemon so we can teach Satoshi a lesson or two.” Satoshi interrupt “so you want it that way, then you can have it, Pikachu and I will show you.” With that they started to argue to each other until Takeshi tells them why he is so concerned.
“STOP THAT NOW!!! OK, I’m concerned because there is something strange in the air and as you should know the weather is very shifty in the mountains even when the sky is clear blue right know in a wink a blizzard could occur.”
Satoshi and Hikari response synchrony with a strange-funny tone; “Yeah sure the sky is blue and the sun is shining but in a few minutes a blizzard breaks out” and while that both took a big hand of snow to soap Takeshi. “Hey, what is that for, I’m concerned of you and this is your thank?!” Then both laughed so loud they nearly caused an Avalanche. By that Takeshi forget about his worries and joined them playing for a while.
“Well enough playing, time to make lunch, I shout for you when it is ready but don’t forget to look about anything which could mean a blizzard. If this still should happen and you can’t return think about searching shelter in a cave or digging a hole to hide and close it with snow.”
“Yeah, promise but there is no need to worry; we still have our Pokemon to help out.” Takeshi sighs; “Every time you say “no need to worry" is when I worry the most.” This slightly angers Hikari; “Come on, that’s the line of my mother and it doesn’t suit anymore anyway.” Then she grabs Satoshi and drags him affronted away.
A little further on she calmed down and let them fell in the snow. “Come Satoshi let’s make some snow angels, the newly fallen snow suits perfect for this.” Satoshi doesn’t mind this and joins her without grumbling.
So they play some more, build snowmen and have fun, all with their Pokemon but don’t check that Takeshi was right and a blizzard is about to start.
Hikari and Satoshi have much fun and can laugh very loud here. “Wow Satoshi, I haven’t had so much fun since I was born. Because Twinleaf lies way south in Shinnoh, we rarely see snow and I never had so much fun with Kengo or anyone else even when there was some snow in Twinleaf anyway.”
Still laughing and smiling Satoshi says something to her; “That is what you get when you meet new people, befriend them and travel along though I already had such funny times while I was traveling with Haruka and Kasumi it was somehow different from today it felt much more intense than in the past.”
Hikari grins with pleasure and seemingly feels the same. ”Of course it was very lovely with us and our Pokemon together like that but now we should head back we actually really drifted away of Takeshi, he surely worries about us now and the lunch probably is cooled out by now.”
“Hey Satoshi we should hurry, seems Takeshi was right just look at the sky it is absolutely sure a blizzard will break out soon.” Satoshi agrees with a nod and they had back. But then a strong wind blew away Satoshis hat “don’t dare to jump after Satoshi, with an upcoming blizzard this is only crazy recklessness and a hat can be replaced you not,” but at the same time and with a much quieter tone she says "especially not for me” but Pikachu jumps after it and vanishes in the snowfields.
So the blizzard already started but Satoshi jumps after Pikachu and while that Hikari yells something after him; “Please be careful, I don’t want to loose you, if I would I also would loose my happiness forever” but most of these words were swallowed by the storm so Satoshi probably only understood “...be careful…” but his response were not audible and so he vanished as well.
“I don’t know why but a strange kind of coldness grips my heard, I hope he will be alright.” Then she started to freeze even more and at the whole body and left in Takeshis direction.
“Heeeeey Hikari, are you all right? Didn’t I tell you this, if you had listened to me you wouldn’t freeze like you do right now, so come in I already built a shelter. By the way where is Satoshi?” The face of Hikari let no doubt that she is upset about something and Takeshi sees this and asks her out.
“I see so that happened, hopefully he is all right. The blizzard has gotten worse I believe he was at least bright enough to take my advise and searched for shelter or made one cause with a storm like this it just would be crazy to try to get back here, regardless how far or near it is.” Hikari even more upset and nearly saddened as hell states that she told him something similar but then Pikachu jump after the hat and so Satoshi too.
During that Satoshi got to his Pikachu but now he stands somewhere in the nowhere and with no sight nor any idea where he can head back to Takeshi. “Darn, no idea where am I or which direction I should head and with that storm I can’t even seeing my hand before my eyes. Pikachu are you here?”
“Are there you are Pikachu, come and hop on my shoulder so I know where you are.” And with that his Pikachu does as he asked and gives him his hat.
“Thank you Pikachu but now we are stuck, what did Takeshi say again? Ah yeah, I should search shelter in a cave or a hole and cover it with snow to protect me; at least we have warm cloth so we won’t freeze that easily.”
Then he looks around or at least tries to; “Let’s see as far as I can tell we’re on a wide plain of snow so we can forget to find shelter in a cave, the best we may find could be a Rock but this wouldn’t be enough anyway so we have to dig a hole to hide till the storm calmed down, but how?”
Pikachu approaches Satoshi and takes the Pokeball of Monferno. “Great idea Pikachu, he can melt a small amount of snow so we can make a little shelter there to protect us.”
Then he tried to open it to release Monferno but it didn’t work. “Hey what is this why doesn’t it work. Something like that never happened ever before.
Then he takes a closer look to it and discovers that the lock is frozen. “Oh noooooo this can’t be, how could this happen, I should have prevent it while I was wearing them but I never thought something like that could happen anyway. So we got a biiiiiiiiiiiiig problem Pikachu. Seems we have to use our hands for it, hopefully it works.”
So they both try to do anything to loosen the ice but all they try is useless. “We must try harder or we don’t stand a chance out here keep going Pikachu it has to work it just has to.”
They try harder but still no change and slowly the both cool out and got tired. “Pikachu are you all right you look so weakened, take a break I will continue this” but he also looses all his power and realizes something; “Hah who had thought that it will end like this…”
During his heart beating slower and his breathing becomes weaker he thinks out in the cold how his life has been and how it has could be. He remembers all the nice adventures he had with Kasumi and Haruka. He thinks of all the awesome Adventures he had in Kanto, Johto and Hoenn. As he reviews his journeys and remember how often he and his friends got lost and how much time they wasted in searching for the right way out in nowhere he smiles a last time. His last recall of life was given to his mother, his past and his friends for what he missed.
“Mom sure will be very sad if I never show up again. I got lost on my journey for becoming the ‘very best’ like my father vanished before I could even speak. I never met him nor heard of him again and cuz I was practically raised by my mother alone or rather to young to remember something I never missed him. And it is said that I not even can say good bye to my friends or learn who my father really is. Mum told me more than once that I am very unaware like my father was/is. Father probably ended similar to that as well. If I would be more aware and prepared like Takeshi is I had planed for such a situation like I’m in now and maybe survived… But now I don’t have the chance to do this later, there will be nothing like another try if I loose.”
Now Kasumi flash to his mind and he grinned when he thought about her and the first time they met.
“Come to think of it, my short life was great and it is sad that I won’t have a future. Who knows if I would be more prepared I could have a nice future. My love and friendship for Pokemon sure one day had lead me to the title of a ‘Pokemon Master’. But at the other hand I also missed many things and chances I had. I just have to think about Kasumi she was the first person I met after starting out and some time later we also met Takeshi. We three became really good friends and I never noticed it or I didn’t want to notice it but Kasumi seemingly felt more than just friendship to me. She argued and complaint a lot to me and every time teased and lectured me. I always found this annoying but she sure wanted the best for me. She was kind of a big sister to me though she kind of loved me, apparently not only like a big sister. I never showed interest in girls especially not she, despite we traveled so long together Kanto, Orange Archipelago and Johto… but who knows if I were slightly more matured back then I may have started to like her in a way but still not like a girlfriend only like a best friend. Like she cried when we parted, it appeared she is kind hearted in her own way. So many things I remember I got through with her but still she was and still is more like a big sister for me”
After he ended his mixed feelings for Kasumi he recaps his travel through Hoenn and his meeting with Haruka.
“Then there was Haruka, I met her after I decide to start anew and traveled to Hoenn to refine my skills. Pikachu also fried her bike like he did to Kasumi’s but if not we may have never met and this sure would be sad. At the beginning she was a little scared from Pokemon and unsure what she can or will do but she wanted to travel, mainly to eat all kinds of specialties and seeing new places. She surely kind of liked me very much when she saw how passionate and self-scarifying I am with Pokemon. Her father was one tough Gym leader but I didn’t understand why she wanted to bypass him at the start. If I think about this now I believe she wanted to avoid the situation she is in when I battle with her father and the problem which she should root for because she liked me that much. In the end I was spoofed by her younger brother Masato and in the end learned the true with her family but couldn’t fight an official battle then. Later after we revisited the Gym and I battled she surely wanted me to win over her father though she also was very impressed by Shuu after we met him later the first visit in the Gym. While we were heading for the first Gym battle I could make only with Pikachu I first learned about Contests and Haruka as well. She was flash right from the beginning of them and decided to take the carrier of a Pokemon Coordinator. At start I thought about Contest like more of a girly like thing or something for snobbish weaklings who can’t battle but this changed over time especially after I met Shuu and now I enjoy them as well. The whole time we traveled with Takeshi and Masato over Hoenn and the Kanto Battle Frontier I was kind of a teacher and inspiring for Haruka and I enjoyed this in some ways. This also let me mature much but I still was not interested in girls. I liked Haruka very much and still do this but she is more like a student or subordinate if someone likes to say it that way for me. But somehow I get remembered at my mom when I think about Haruka as well. I don’t know why this is so but maybe I like her in a girlfriend way as well. I wonder how well she does in Johto Contests now but I will never learn and we will also never meet again. How much do I wish right know I could say Good Bye to her…
His next thoughts now went to his newest Adventure and the Shinnoh region and the girl he met her, Hikari.
“… Now I am located somewhere in Shinnoh north covered with snow and already Part-frozen. After I was at home I met Shigeru again who now follow his Grandfathers steps and is about to success Professor Ookido as a Pokemon expert. He told me he leaves for Shinnoh to meet and learn about the Pokemon in this Region as well. I went here for a new challenge and all the new Pokemon I will met here and I met Hikari here as well. After Team Rocket again stole Pikachu, he fried her bike too. What a story I met and traveled with all my friends because my best friend Pikachu did something to them. Kinda strange, the thing which is even more strange than that is that I even never will be annoyed by Team Rocket but still feel sad that me and Pikachu never will fry this dorks again. However Thanks to Pikachu I met Hikari and I somehow like her even more than Kasumi and Haruka now. Her target was set at the start; she wanted to succeed her mother as a Pokemon Coordinator. Hikari reminds me on myself when I set out for my journey with the difference she easily cries if something don’t work out like she wants to but kinda cute. Did I just think this? Seems like I really like her much, I never thought about a girl who traveled along with me more like another good friend… except for Hikari. This is new for me, until now I only showed interest in Pokemon that devoted. Who can tell I may was just to immature for that like Kasumi told me so often or I feared to get refused so I never showed interest but it somehow is different with Hikari. But at the other hand Kengo actually loves her as well, at least it looks like that if I just remember the Solaceon Ruins. I wonder how she feels but I probably won’t ever learn this cuz my end is near but I hope that she doesn’t like me that way cause it would make her even sadder when they found out about me becoming an Ice Block… I just so much wish I could tell her my feelings now but this will become impossible and the other sad thing is I never will be able to show Shinji how wrong his philosophy about Pokemon is. So much I regret and yet so much I never can do…”
He now thinks his last thoughts and apologizes to his Pikachu and his Pokemon for what he did to them now, sold them to a freeze dead.
“Well, well I get tired and I feel warm though I’m out in the cold while a blizzard howls terrible… I heard of this though I never thought I would come in a situation like this. That is what coldness makes with your body… You have to fight against it cause if you fall asleep you will die. I have to take all my power to do that but regardless what I do, I steadily loose might and there is now sign of someone showing up and helps me out. I really should be more careful but if my Pokemon are in danger I can’t be helped but to jump towards them and help them, I would do anything for them… and Pikachu and my Pokemon would do anything for me. I have many good friends it is just sad that I never will see Hikari or Takeshi again. Sorry you too, I won’t be able to say good bye to you and what are you for me… but at least I can try to safe Pikachu with protecting him from the cold with my body…”
Then he curls himself around Pikachu to protect it and fall asleep, soon they completely covered by snow and frozen like a block of ice. This is the end of our hero Satoshi and his Adventures. The only remaining question if or if not his body someday will be found by Hikari and Takeshi or someone else.
