Trial of the Phoenix

Introduction: Here it is, my second Pokemon story. This is basically an AU to the anime. In fact it's sort of a prequel to my first Pokemon story, Fire for Ice. But you don't need to have read Fire for Ice to understand what's going on. In fact Fire for Ice has a few spoilers, so it my be best to read this first. Anyway, this story is more or less what I think should've happened in the anime.

Summary: The Johto League has ended, and before Ash can figure out what to do next, Professor Oak sends him and Misty to run a special errand in Ecruteak City. Along the way, Ash meets new friends and enemies, and his connection to Ho-Oh is at last revealed. Set ten years before Fire for Ice.
