Breather chapter a go. Less intense, less tied into things, but hopefully still enjoyable. This is a few commentary points and review response For anyone interested in Domino, please note I have no plans for her. I'll admit if a Mewtwo Returns story is made I might use her in the main story, but that's a very low key thing for me personally.
For some reason Domino was heavily involved and was a Psychic, despite the fact that Anabel and Sabrina make much better sense for such a role.
I have had some requests for versions of this story on other websites like Archive of Our Own. If someone does and is willing to host the stuff there that can be done as long as they ask me first. I don't envy the tagging for the former site though….. The girl at the end of the chapter was not Dawn. I said she had brown hair and shorts at the end didn't I? Just saying that now.
Don't expect her in this chapter though, this one's a breather for me. If anyone is curious, the Black Gaiman mentioned last chapter is in fact Adventures Black, just minus N in anyway shape or form. He's also not related to Ash, thought I'd make that clear now.
For the guys who noted that Red's trick is a lot like meta-gaming…that was part of the inspiration for it. If anyone is curious, while I have said I won't write lemons nor have any of the co-writers expressed interest in it, a lemon writer in the Resetverse is possible.
Not only do I not want really bad writing so I'd be a lot more critical of the writing than I tend to be, but they'd only be allowed to write lemons of characters who are currently in a relationship or make sense to be having sex casually. An epic 12, word sex scene of Wikstrom and Glacia makes little sense in the Resetverse after all.
Okay, now for a few WMG responses. The kid Ash helped back in Crimson City, the kid with the Caterpie, is not tied up in the family quagmire. He was just someone Ash randomly helped, a character of the day if you will. Caroline is not pregnant. By plot relevant I meant 'a character duo who were actually relevant', not 'the sex parody scene was relevant'.
P and the Bloodline King don't know each other at all. They pursue their own goals and as of yet they haven't conflicted. He's currently set to meet Ash in Movie 4 as before. Finally I should probably comment on this.
While one can inherit a Bloodline from your parents or carry the genes for it, having the same bloodline does not automatically mean relations. Sabrina and Anabel have the same bloodline, but they aren't necessarily related. Two of their ancestors were simply affected by the same set of conditions at different times and places. Now, let us begin! Misty stared at the Slowbro. The Slowbro stared right back from atop a massive lilypad. The staredown continued, even as she slowly reached down for a Safari Ball.
She saw the eyes of Slowbro slowly follow her as she did so, only ceasing their slow movement seconds after she picked up the ball and readied the throw. Slowbro's stare caught up to this moments before the ball plopped itself on the slow beast's head, sucking it in as shaking began.
If Jynx are in the Safari Zone, might I suggest the hillier expanses with cool caves? A Jynx would be quite useful for data collection. Not one of the new flip ones, but one of the really old versions. Monocolor, monotone, monosales these days. Few bothered with them anymore outside of tech collectors. It was going with Ash, but she would be doing her own thing with her own goals while he was off far from water sources. So it had suggested they use the old pieces of tech as side bodies as to allow for additional data collection and providing of additional services through a few features like Dexnav.
Ash had been against it but they hadn't seen any harm in it. Slowbro appears to be in healthy shape with Fishing isn't exactly a guarantee I'll find what I need here. The plan itself had been hashed out over breakfast.
However when one leaves a wild area alone for 40 years, finding anything became tricky. That was where Iris had come in. If not it would go to Ash, who'd maybe go after it.
Anabel meanwhile would also be able to pop over to Ash and get Safari Balls if she ran out, or if Iris needed one for some reason. If Misty had to be honest she wasn't sure what Ash was actually looking for beyond 'he really wanted to find it', and she hadn't a chance to ask him about what exactly he was looking for. From behind the bushes, and from downwind as far he knew, Ash could see a watering hole where five Tauros were drinking. All five of them had their backs to him, tails at ease as their heads were lowered to the water.
Poking his head out of the brush, Ash eyed the Tauros closely as the leftmost Tauros rose his head for a moment, giving him a clear view of the horns. A familiar notch ran alongside the leftmost horn, one that made Ash smile. He recognized this Tauros, the fourth most powerful Tauros of his old herd.
Pikachu popped out of the brush with a sniff before giving his observation, which with a few more seconds of looking he had to agree with. The two rightmost Tauros were also familiar. Three of his old Tauros were right there and front of him, along with two he didn't recognize. What was he to do?
Did he just leave them, or did he capture them too so both his herd, and the herd right in front of him, stayed together? But was it too much? Multiple study Tauros would be appreciated by the man.
Doing so could net me additional RAM when you next return to him. Well if the Professor wanted it It was just two additional Tauros, what could they possibly do that was so much worse than 30? Tapping the glove he was given with the ball program glitch, a metallic hand from Gorrigan Engineering if the red lettering on the side was correct, a Safari Ball popped out.
Taking a quiet step out of the bushes Ash entered a long distance throwing stance. This same restraint was held as he popped out and sent 4 more towards the Tauros in quick succession. The balls flew close together, aimed at the Tauros group of five in perfect sync. The ball triggered, sucking the Spearow in as the four other balls continued forward. The sound alerted the Tauros, who rapidly stopped their consumption of water and prepared to bolt. The four Tauros without an intercepting Spearow were each struck by a ball safely, but the last one, one of his Tauros, began to bolt.
The ball narrowly struck the fleeing Tauros on the flank as it activated. As that ball fell to the ground and waggled Ash collapsed to his knees with a audible exhale. Pikachu darted to his side, unease on his face even as he tried to be reasonable. It shouldn't happen again. Walking along a lake shore, Red kept his eyes focused on the horizon, scanning for movement.
For a moment his eyes focused, glaring down a nearby bush that shook with potential. A Ratatta scurried out of it, quickly revealing the lack of potential.
Steps behind him was Yellow, who had a notepad out and a pen in hand. You also caught a Sandshrew, Ekans, and a Psyduck because we happened to walk past them earlier. You're 6 for 7 so far! He was sure that Chansey had been caught, and with infinite Safari Balls he should have been able to keep throwing them with abandon even if he had to run after the plump thing for a while.
He had all day after all. Since when did Chansey have the ability to use Teleport? A massive white and blue body of power and rage, a wild Gyarados had appeared.
Roaring loudly at them, hissing with rage and fury. Yellow whimpered in fear as Red held a Safari Ball up to it. Gyarados roared again, countered only by Pikachu's sparking cheeks, and a thrown Safari Ball. The ball hit the serpent on its mid torso, opening and sucking the raging beast inside of it. The ball bounced back to his hands, where he held it tightly even as it shook with immense intensity. His hands still vibrating he turned to the still unsettled Yellow and answered her question.
Well in that case I hope we don't find a Gyarados Mega Stone then. He doesn't seem very happy? He had missed that. He had been distracted by the imminent threat of mauling and incineration. There was a reason he didn't put Gyarados on his list.
