Chapter 1: The Meeting
Synopsis: Ash’s Decolora Islands adventures have just finished. Having parted with his old friends Iris
and Cilan, he battled Tobias upon the ship en route home. Subsequently, he paid a visit to Professor Oak and his mother at Pallet Town, before getting informed about the Francis region from Gary.
Now, Ash has arrived in Francis’ Stormpine Town, heading straight to Prof. Pinecone’s Lab. However, a new friend awaits for him over there…
--- Pokemon! ---
Ash, with Pikachu
ever present on his shoulder, has just arrived to Prof. Pinecone’s Lab. Without losing a single moment, he storms in, shouting “Professor Pinecone, do you hear me?”
He got no response.
Ash shouted again: “Professor, are you here?”
This time, however, the back door cracked open, and a short and fat man in a brown and white lab coat appeared. He muttered with a weak voice: “Are you asking for me?”
Ash psyched up and replied: “Professor, my name is Ash Ketchum, and I am from Pallet Town. I just arrived in Francis, and Kanto’s Professor Oak suggested that I should pay you a visit”
The Professor grinned, before answering: “That [EFF]ing poet dares to send me a visitor?”
Ash was shocked by the reaction, and Pikachu
too. Before being able to say a word, a tall girl with long purple hair entered the laboratory.
“Professor, how dare you!”, she shouted. Ash turned towards her, introducing himself: “Excuse me, my name’s Ash Ketchum, and I’m from Pallet.”
The girl shouted: “I HEARD IT!”
Ash sighed, before asking: “What about your name?”
As soon as Ash asked that question, however, the girl blushed. Ash continued: “Come on, what’s the problem?”
She finally took courage and blabbed in one breath: “It’s Stickerstaryoshi! Have a problem?”
Ash, who was surprised himself, answered: “No problem, indeed. That’s a nice name of yours.”. Meanwhile, Pikachu laughed, albeit extremely quietly.
“I HEARD IT, YELLOW THING!”
Ash sighed once again, asking: “You heard what?”
Stickerstaryoshi explained: “That Pokemon of yours laughed at my name!”
Pikachu blushed, before nodding his head in sorry.
She continued: “It’s allright.”. She then turned her attention to the Professor, who was standing still at the room’s very corner.
Prof: “Stickerstaryoshi, why are you looking at me that way?”
Stickerstaryoshi: “Because you are embarrassing us with your attitude, Dad!”
Prof: “Come on, you’re much worse than me!”
Stickerstaryoshi: “I am not!”
Ash finally interrupted: “Professor, is Stickerstaryoshi your daughter?”
The Professor nodded his head in response. Stickerstaryoshi added: “Yep, my full name’s Stickerstaryoshi Pinecone. I HEARD YOUR LAUGHING!”
Ash said back: “We are not laughing!”
Stickerstaryoshi: “Maybe, but I am yelling just in case…”
The Professor interrupted: “Come on, guys, stop it! After all, you both have an important reason to be here!”
Stickerstaryoshi: “I know! Just give me my Pokemon!”
Ash asked once again: “By any chance, are you starting out as a Pokemon Trainer?”
Stickerstaryoshi replied: “Of course not! I will become the world’s best Pokemon Calculator!”
Ash: “Calculator, what’s that?”
Stickerstaryoshi: “You will see, as soon as we get to battle!”
Ash: “Battle? I just stepped into Francis…”
Stickerstaryoshi: “Come on, don’t be that way! We will battle!”
The Professor interrupted: “First, you take a sneek peek at Francis’ starter Pokemon!:
Stickerstaryoshi ranted: “Come on, I know these three by heart! What’s the point?”
Prof: “How will the KIDS watching the show learn about them?
Ash: “Pokemon! Pokemon! I want to meet them! I want to meet them!”
Pinecone finally got all three Pokeballs in his hands and threw them all in the air. They popped out, sending out the Pokemon Chespin, Fennekin and Froakie respectively. Prof. went on to explain.
He first turned towards Froakie: “This is Froakie, the Water type.”
Ash: “I hope we don’t have to go with it for a whole anime series…”
Stickerstaryoshi: “You won’t, don’t worry!”
Prof: “Next up is Fennekin, the Fire type!”
Stickerstaryoshi interrupted: “I want it! I want it!”
The Professor went on: “Stickerstaryoshi Pinecone, are you sure that you want the Pokemon Fennekin as your starter?”
Stickerstaryoshi replied: “Yeah.”
Prof: “That’s it, then! You get Fennekin! Fennekin, return!”
The Professor returned Fennekin to its Pokeball. He went on to grab a Pokedex and 5 empty Pokeballs, before presenting them to his daughter: “This is your Trainer Set, Stickerstaryoshi! Good luck to you as a Pokemon Calculator!”
However, all this time, the other Pokemon approached Ash. He asked the Professor: “Professor, what is this Pokemon?”
The Professor turned his attention to Ash: “It’s Chespin, the Grass type. And it also looks that it likes you.”
Chespin agreed: “Chespin, Chespin!”
Stickerstaryoshi just got an idea: “Dad, you should hand Chespin to Ash. They have already formed a strong bond.”
The Professor thought of it for a while: “Well, I should not do such a favor to that poet guy’s minions, but whatever. Ash Ketchum, are you sure that you want the Pokemon Chespin as your starter?”
Ash replied: “Yes.”
Chespin quickly jumped into his Pokeball, as soon as Pinecone was getting Ash’s Trainer Set ready: “This is your Trainer Set, Ash Ketchum! I wish you luck on your Francis Region Journeys!”
Ash: “Thanks, professor! Well, We’ ve got Chespin!”
Stickerstaryoshi interrupted the moment once again, though: “Well, Ash, what about that battle? Chespin vs Fennekin!”
Ash scratched his head: “I would like to use Pikachu…”
Stickerstaryoshi: “Would it be nice to test Chespin’s battle strategies?”
Ash agreed: “Pikachu, Stickerstaryoshi is right. I should use Chespin.”
Pikachu grinned, but finally agreed.
Ash: “That’s the spirit! Off to the battle!”
