The Poke'Tech Chronicles
It has been five years since ten-year-old Ash Ketchum had defeated the Unova League and the Unova Elite Four thereby declaring him the champion of Unova and giving him the world renowned, much anticipated title of Pokemon Master. Breaking the usual pattern of ages in the series remaining the same, a five year time skip has finally been executed. Over the years Ash has been residing in Pallet Town and decided to cease traveling and give someone else a shot since he had already earned his title also he felt it would be plain cruel to put his mother through another long period of his absence just for him to have some kicks. Ash spent his time daily as he did as a child before his departure on his journey except now he had more people to visit and talk to aside from Gary and the other neighborhood kids. Pikachu lived at Ash's house but his other Pokemon remained at the Oak Corral which was very close by to his home. Over the five years Ash had been peacefully relaxing in his hometown there had been many drastic changes in the world. For one it had been now made illegal for citizens in the Kanto region to receive a Pokemon license until the age of eighteen , so technically now all of Ash's Pokemon legally belonged to his mother. And just recently it became a global requirement for all soon-to-be trainers take a Pokemon Training class at a boarding school called Poke'Tech. After Kanto passed the age restriction bill for Pokemon licenses the rest of the regions also adopted it seeing it as a wise decision made by the Kanto region government. The closest Poke'Tech from Kanto, Johto,Hoenn and Sinnoh was in Pastoria City the second closest was in a desolate town in Unova but Unova was extensively far from the other regions mentioned above. Due to the new law Ash was determined to keep his status as a Pokemon Trainer and therefore he had his sights set on Poke'Tech Academy, Pastoria City, Sinnoh.
