Pokemon - The Later Years Pt 5Outside of the Pokemon World Council's Headquarters Ash, Lance and Gary stood in an large courtyard.Pokemon - The Later Years Pt 5 by y2jchampion
There were dozens of trainers, coordinators, watchers and breeders gathered around some were conversing amongst themselves, whilst others were entering and leaving the World Council buildings.
Ash was still thinking about his new position, it was going to be a huge responsibility. He was still unsure as to what exactly Gary and Lance were going to help him do.
However, the prospects of his new position were exciting to him, he would be given the opportunity to battle many aspiring trainers who felt they were ready to advance to higher classes.
Lance and Gary were speaking amongst themselves, at first it was simply idle banter but they soon began speaking about Ash's position.
'So Ash, Gary was just saying that we need to get you up and running as soon as possible, especially if you want to enter the Master's Tournament in a few months time.' Lance said.
'Master's Tournament?' Ash said w
Pokemon - The Later Years Pt 4The Slateport City Harbour was bustling with activity.Pokemon - The Later Years Pt 4 by y2jchampion
May had arrived on time with an hour to spare, however the ship that would take her to Vermillion City had been delayed.
It was now expected in another hour. May now had two whole hours to kill and decided to check out the market place.
'Oh well, at least it's an excuse to do some last minute shopping.' May giggled to herself.
She strolled around the market place, all sorts of items were up for sale, from Salac Berries to Macho Braces.
May noticed a stand selling Poketches, however she knew they had to be fake ones. She had wanted one for a while after she had seen one on the wrist of a friend and rival, Dawn.
May strolled down further and noticed a salesman trying to talk up the value of owning a Magikarp. The scene made her laugh, even though she knew Magikarp evolved into Gyarados.
She remembered when she first saw a Magikarp with Ash, Ash was fishing during their travels with Max and Brock.
'I guess nothing is biting today, Pik
Pokemon - The Later Years Pt 3'I beg your pardon, Mr. Ketchum?' Arcturus said in disbelief.Pokemon - The Later Years Pt 3 by y2jchampion
'I'm sorry, sir. I mean no disrespect. It's just that I don't believe that such a thing as a Pokemon master exists.' Ash said with his head bowed.
Lance looked at his young friend with a knowing smile, Ash raised his head to look into the eyes of Arcturus.
'We, all of us, are forever learning new things about Pokemon, whether it be our own Pokemon, ones we encounter in the wild or the ones trained by our peers.' Ash said, 'We will always be learning new things, there is no way to possibly become a Pokemon Master, because we are forever learning and our ideas about Pokemon and what it means to be a trainer, breeder, watcher or coordinator evolve, just like our Pokemon do.'
The Pokemon World Council looked at each other dumbfounded at his words. Arcturus was the first to speak, 'Ash Ketchum, when I asked you if you believed yourself to be ready, I expected a yes from you.'
'I know that if you had asked me eleven years ago, I w

Theyre just through those doors and at the end of the hallway.
Ash opened the enormous doors, I should have imagined that theyd make something so grand for the Pokemon World Council.
He thought, as he entered he was confronted with an enormous hallway, it looked to be about 40 feet from floor to ceiling.
Its walls were adorned with pictures of legendary Pokemon trainers past and present.
There were a few that Ash recognized like Drake of the Hoenn Elite Four, Agatha from the Kanto Elite Four was there as well.
There were also a number of trainers he did not recognize either, he gathered that they must have been from different regions and long before he was born.
At the end of the hall was two more enormous doors, he opened them. The room was completely dark, Ash could only see a few fee
