I Remember

Work Text:


"Its name, is Pikachu."

"It's so cute, it's the best of all!"

I remember , the first words he ever told me.

"Oh, hi Pikachu!"

Pika… chuuuuu!

I remember, when I first shocked him, he had been so naïve.

"Alright, I pledged to get all the Pokemon in the world, now I am ready to take the next step to become the number one, Pokemon Master. Enjoy your last moments of freedom, Pidgey, 'cause your mine! Pokeball… GO!"

I remember, his first attempt to catch a Pokemon, oh what a fool he had been.

"Pikachu, please Pikachu, just go inside. After that, just trust me!"


"Spearows, do you know who I am? I am Ash, from the town of Palet. I'm destined to be the world's number one Pokemon Master! I can't be defeated by the likes of you."


"I'm going to capture and defeat you all, you hear me? Pikachu, go inside the Pokeball, it's the only way!"


"Come and get me!"

I remember, when he first stood up for me…


'Pika, chuuu!'


…and I for him.


'Pika, chu.'

"Haha… Well, we beat 'em."


I remember, that fateful day, where I forgave him, and he me…

"Huh? What's that?"

…and where we met our first legendary Pokemon…

*There is no data, there are still Pokemon yet to be identified.*

…and became friends. We have been inseparable ever since.

"Pikachu, we did it!"


I remember, all of our countless battles.

"Oh, Pikachu, I'm so sorry…"

'Pika, pi.'

I remember, all of his blunder-ups—he made a lot.

"I'm sorry, I have to borrow this!"

"Hey! That's my bike!"

"I'll return it someday…!"

I remember all the friends made…

"Don't worry. I'll just tell all the other Pokemon that you're on a trip… and that you'll come back someday, maybe."

'Butterfree… free…'

'Butterfree, Butterfree!'

"Goodbye, Butterfree."


"Bye, bye Butterfree!"

"Goodluck to both of you!"

'Pika, chuu!'


"Hey Ash, Butterfree's almost out of sight!"


"Take care Butterfree! Good luck, buddy! Goodbye Butterfree! I'll always remember you! Thank you for everything! Goodbye Butterfree!"


…And all the friends lost.

"To become a Pokemon master… Pikachu, that is my dream!"

'Pika, pi.' [I know Ash, I know.]

I remember, that vow of his…

"Pikachu, we'll get there someday."

… Will he ever do it?

"That was well fought Ash."

"Heh, you deserve this.

"Thank you!"

I remember , all of his wins…

"Better luck next time."

"Don't worry Ash, you'll get it!"

"Yah, you'll do better next time."

'Pika pi.'

"Thanks guys…"

…And all of his losses.

"Hungry… Need food…"

"Oh, Ash! You haven't done a thing all day!"

"I'm too weak to work, Misty. I haven't eaten since breakfast."

He may not be perfect,

'The human sacrificed himself, to save the Pokemon. I pitted them against each other, but not until they set aside their differences did I see the true power they all share deep inside. I see now that the circumstances of one's birth are irrelevant; it is what you do with the gift of life that determines who you are.'

'Pi.' [Right.]


"So that means I'm stupid?"

'Pika... Pika!'

…He is still my friend.


"I know dear, I packed your clothes so you can go."

We are…

"Haha! I caught a-"



"Come on guys, let's go!"


"Hey, Ash! Wait up!"


…To the end.

"You ready buddy?"

And that will always ,

'Pika…' [You…]

be true.

'…Chu.' […bet.]
