The Adventures of Kochou and the Beautiflies

(General Pokemon, and rated E for everyone!)

The Adventures of Kochou and the Beautiflies

(upbeat music begins as we see the title)

Me and my friends are Beautiflies!

Kochou: Hey! My name is Kochou!

Exciting adventures, glamour and fame!

Kochou: Now a Beautifly, never the same!

Come on, take flight and fly away now!

Kochou: Hey! My name is Kochou! (Kochou poses with his bandmates, Misty, and Niji before the title, which is lit up like a neon sign)


Episode 1: Becoming a Beautifly


(We open on the scene of a theater, where a large crowd has gathered. The theater's marquee proclaims in big black letters "LIVE TONITE: Kochou and the Beautiflies"., Judging from the size of the crowd, it appears that this band as a very loyal following.

Suddenly, a red haired girl spots a limo approaching the theater.)

Girl: Look! They're here!

(The crowd hurries up to get a closer look at the limo as it slows to a stop at the curb.)

(Various girls cry "Haeru wingu, Beautifly!" in anticipation of the arrival of their favorite stars. Some wear red, others green, and various others blue and yellow. Still others wear green, black, and blue jackets. One thing is the same: they're all chanting "Haeru wingu, Beautifly!")

(Suddenly, the chanting of "Haeru wingu, Beautifly!" is hushed as the limo's door opens.)

Female voice: Haeru wingu, Akaichou yo! (We see a girl with short red hair emerge from the limo to the cheers of the crowd. Since we are looking at her from the side, all we can see of her clothing at the moment is a red shirt with silver buttons. As the girl steps onto the red carpet, we see the rest of her outfit: a white skirt with rubies dotting it. . The fans waring red start to chant "Akaichou! Akaichou!" as the girl waves to the crowd and pauses to sign a few autographs before being escorted inside by security)

(The fans wearing green begin to cheer as a pair of golden shoes with emeralds on the sides and the toes appears on the red carpet.)

Male voice: Haeru wingu, Midorichou yo! (the fans wearing green begin screaming as we see the shoes' owner: a tall and handsome black haired boy with tanned skin. The shoes aren't the only item the boy has on that has emeralds on them: the pants and the jacket complimenting the boy's silver shirt have plentiful counts of emeralds on them as well. Midorichou waves to his fans before he too is escorted inside by security.)

(The fans wearing blue cheer as a pair of aqua sandals studded with tiny sapphires emerge from the limo)

Female voice: Haeru wingu, Mizuirochou yo! (the fans in blue cheer as a second girl emerges from the limo, her aqua blue hair tied up neatly in a braid. Her gloved hands clasp a harmonica close to her heart. Mizuirochou's shirt starts out a royal blue at the top, then turns white at the bottom. An aqua skirt finishes the look. She waves to the crowd as she is escorted inside by security.)

(The fans wearing yellow cheer as a pair of pale yellow boots appear from the limo)

Female voice: Haeru wingu, Ierochou yo! (we get a closeup of the girl as she walks down the red carpet: Her hair is tied back in a ponytail so it doesn't get caught in the golden lace or the yellow sash on her short dress. The flashing cameras do make the topazes on her boots sparkle. Ierochou signs one fan's poster before being taken inside by security.)

(Finally a spotlight appears, as the limo's final passenger steps onto the red carpet....)

Male voice: Haeru wingu, Kochou yo! (everyone screams and cheers as a boy with flowing silver hair steps out of the limo and into the spotlights; the camera flashes making the jewels on his green, black, blue, and purple checkered jacket, as well as the sparkles on his black pants, sparkle. A white rose is tucked into the right pocket of the jacket, which Kochou sniffs as he listens to his fans chant his name.)

Kochou(voiceover): That's me, Kochou...leader of the Beautiflies. (Kochou carefully tucks the rose back in his pocket and starts down the red carpet, waving to his fans as he does so) The chant we cry at the beginning of every show, "Haeru wingu, Beautifly!" has special meaning to us...because if it were not for a Beautifly, we would've never had a chance to live this dream...and the young boy I once was would've never had the chance to become a man. (Kochou waves to the crowd as security escorts him inside the theater.)

(The scene fades to show a boy with messy black hair, a blue vest, a deep green shirt, and jeans seated at a table, studying a newspaper intently)

Kochou(voiceover): In reality, I'm just a ten year old child...but at the time, I had no idea that my dream of becoming Pokemon Master would take a back seat to a much more important dream... (the boy glances at one headline in shock.)

Ash: No way! It can't be!!!!

(The boy's mother, a brown haired woman in her early thirties, looks up from washing dishes for a moment, piqued by her son's cry. We notice the pendant complimenting her pink shirt spells her name: Delia.)

Delia: What's the matter, Ash?

Ash: The Theater de Pallete...(he struggles to hold back tears) They're going to tear it down! (Ash buries his face in his cap as he begins to cry.)

Delia: Ash, that old theater's been there for a very long time... (Ash just continues to cry as he darts upstairs.)

(We see Ash seated on his bed, still crying a little.)

Kochou(voiceover): See, the Theater de Palette was the only means of hosting concerts and theatrical productions in our town, and if it was gone, we would have to travel all the way to Viridian to see a concert or a play. But then, I noticed an item a little further in the story. (Ash musters a weak smile as he reads some more.) The committee in charge of the theater would be hosting a battle of the bands in an attempt to save it. (Ash picks up the phone and dials a number.) I felt compelled to tell all my friends about it...

(The screen splits five ways to show Brock, May, Crystal, and Whitney; all on the phone with Ash)

Ash: ...and if we don't win the battle of the bands, the Theater will be torn down!

Others: WHAT????

Whitney: It's a good thing you're trying to save the theater, Ash, but you're missing several important details...

Ash: Like?

Whitney: A. Whoever wins the battle gets the theater, so it doesn't solely depend on us...

May: B. Gary will likely be there...

Kochou(voiceover): I shuddered at this. Gary and I had this thing going: whatever I tried to do, he would try and do it better than me. So if he was at the battle of the bands, the chances of us winning would be next to nothing. Not that we had any musical skills to begin with--the only one of us that had a drop of musical blood in him was Brock--and a solo guitar wasn't going to cut it.

Brock: C. We don't have enough instruments or gear...

Crystal: and D. Where are we going to even get a song?

Kochou(voiceover): Things looked rather bleak...but no sooner had I said goodbye to my friends, did the phone ring again. (Ash picks up the phone again)

Ash: Hello?

(the screen splits to show Prof. Oak on the other end)

Kochou(voiceover): It was always a joy to get a call from the Professor...he was always inventing something or studying something, and often times invited the five of us to come along and help him out. Today was no different...

Prof. Oak: Hello there...I just got back from collecting Beautiflies for an observation experiment, and found a particularly interesting specimen...would you like to come see?

Ash: You bet! I'll be right there!

(the scene fades into the scene of a laboratory, where Ash, May, Brock, Crystal and Whitney are standing around a table looking at a jar containing a glowing Beautifly. Prof. Oak is nearby, making notes on a clipboard.)

May: Weird...it's not a shiny Beautifly...

Brock: If it's not Shiny, then why is it glowing that odd blue color like that? (gestures to the jar and its glowing occupant.)

(Before Ash can answer, he hears a tapping on the jar. He brushes this off as his imagination at first, but looks again when he hears it coming from the jar. the Beautifly inside is tapping its wings on the jar in a desprate attempt to get out.)

Prof. Oak: If any of the Beautiflies start getting uncomfortable, you can let them out for a few minutes. (continues observing a second Beautifly in a nearby enclosure)

Ash: Okay...let's let you out...

(Ash lifts the jar up, releasing the Beautifly. It circles around the table a few times before perching on a coat rack nearby the table)

Beautifly: Thank you so much!

Ash: You're welcome...I think....

Brock: You can speak?

May: Why do you have that blue glow?

Beautifly: Hey, I can only answer one question at a time, okay? First of all, my name is Nijiiro...but you can call me Niji for short.

Ash: Pleased to meet you, Niji...I'm Ash, and these are my friends May...(May waves hello) Brock...(Brock waves hello) Crystal...(Crystal waves hello) and Whitney. (Whitney waves hello).

Niji: Pleased to meet all of you...my glow and my speech ability come from my innate magical power...

Crystal: Magic? (Meanwhile, Prof. Oak ontinues to write while talking on the phone at the same time.)

Niji: Yes...it is said that if you find a captured Beautifly like me and free it, it becomes your friend for as long as the finder lives.

Prof. Oak(on the phone): Not only that, but if my theory about magical Beautiflies is correct, they can also grant wishes....

Niji: Book-boy there hit the nail on the head! Just tell me your deepest desires and I can grant them! (she leads the group down a stairway below the lab. Ash is thinking about this as Kochou speaks.)

Kochou(voiceover): It sounded crazy at first--could a Beautifly REALLY grant people's wishes? (everyone follows Niji through a hidden wall, where we see a lounge; complete with couches, a buffet, game tables, and TVs.) I decided to risk it and tell Niji about the Theater... (everyone makes themselves comfortable on one of the couches)

Ash: Well, Niji...there's the old theater in town...it's being threatened to be torn down...and there going to be a battle of the bands in an attempt to save it.

Niji: Go on...

Ash: I really want to enter, but one, I'm afraid my rival will one up me; and two, none of us really have that much musical talent.

Niji: Let's see... she flies off the coat rack and loops in the air, making a silver pendant fall to the ground. Rings appear on the others' hands. All five look at their items quizzically.)

Ash: Jewelry? How can jewelry make us become a band? (puts the silver pendant around his neck)

Niji: Just hold up your hand and tell me "I'm your little Beautifly!"

Ash: Here goes... (he raises his hand in the air and sings in a noticeably older sounding voice.) Ai-yai-yai, I'm your little Beautifly!

(the pendant plays back the notes that Ash sang. Ash, however, just covers his mouth in embarrassment.)

Ash: ::gulp:: What did I just sing? And how did my voice magically change?

Niji: No time for questions, just sing the rest of it!

Ash: (swallows hard and holds his hand in the air again, then sings again in a noticeably older sounding voice) Ai-yai-yai, I'm your little Beautifly! (Ash's hand begins to glow) Green, black, and blue; make the colors in the sky!

(MUSIC-"Beautifly" (instrumental))

(We see a glowing outline of Ash's body against the background of Beautifly wings. As Ash hangs in this position, his torso begins to glow purple, and a silver and purple shirt appears on him. Next, a checkered jacket appears over that in a flash of purple. Next, we look at Ash's legs as sparkling black pants appear on his legs in a flash of blue, and silver shoes appear on his feet. The view next shifts to Ash's head, where we see his eyes finally open. His normally black hair begins to lengthen and turn silver. A white rose appears in the right pocket of the jacket, which the young man holds in one hand as he poses for the audience.)

(Music cut)

May: Wow!

Brock: Show me how to do that! (Crystal and Whitney both have hearts in their eyes)

Niji: I give you the newest hit sensation...Kochou! (everyone applauds as the young man appears before May, Brock, Crystal, and Whitney)

Kochou(voiceover): I was a bit afraid of my new appearance at the time...the shirt, the checkered jacket... (Kochou nervously feels around the green, black, blue, and purple checkered jacket) Even the pants and the new haircut felt strange. (Kochou tensely holds a wad of his newly long silver hair in his fingers.) At the same time, they all felt...familiar.... (As everyone is oggling over Kochou, everyone hears footsteps coming towards the foot of the stairs)

May: Uh oh...

Brock: How are we going to explain Kochou to the Professor?

Niji: It's all right, he doesn't even know this lounge is here. (Sure enough, everyone hears the footsteps walk away, as well as Prof. Oak mumbling "Must've been my imagination...)

May: I want to transform like that!

Crystal: Me too!

Brock: Me three!

Niji: All right, all right, I'll teach you...who wants to be my lab Rattata here?

May: I will! (gets up from her couch and faces the others)

Niji: Now, touch the jewel in your ring, then clap twice. (May follows Niji's instructions, when she claps twice, her shirt lengthens and gains silver buttons. Next, she taps the ring on her shoes, making them turn into red high heels. Upon tapping the ring on her legs, she gains a white skirt with rubies dotting it. Finally, she claps over her head twice, and an electric guitar appears in her hands, as well as her hair turning red.)

Akaichou: Haeru wingu, Akaichou yo!

Brock: Hair-o wingu WHAT?

Niji: What Akaichou said was "Pretty wing, I am Red Beautifly." (to Kochou) This is Akaichou...she plays guitar and sings backup...

Kochou: Don't I get an instrument?

Niji: Sure you do! Just clap twice!

(Kochou obeys, and an electric guitar similar to Akaichou's appears in his hands)

Niji: Oh yes...if you wish to return to your normal form, Kochou has to just sing "Where's my samurai?"...the rest of you, just say "Fly away..."

Akaichou: Got it!

Crystal: Okay! It's my turn to transform now! (she touches the sapphire in her ring and claps twice, making glaves appear on her hands. When the sapphire is tapped on her feet, her shoes become aqua sandals studded with sapphires. Next, Crystal claps over her head, making her slip into a shirt that starts out royal blue at the top, then turns white at the bottom; followed by a aqua skirt. Finally, she claps twice again, and her hair is magically braided, plus a harmonica appears in her hand.)

Mizuirochou: Haeru wingu, Mizuirochou yo!

Niji: This is Mizuirochou, on wind instruments and backup vocals.

Kochou: That explains the harmonica... (Mizuirochou runs and takes her place by a mic at stage left, behind a drum set. Akaichou is behind a mic at stage right, nearby a digital piano.

Brock: So who gets the drums and the piano?

Niji: Transform to see which one of those you get!

Brock: Here goes...(touches the emerald in his ring and claps twice, making his shirt turn silver. Upon touching the jewel to his legs, he gains a pair of emerald studded pants and golden shoes, also studded with emeralds. Next, Brock claps twice over his head, making the rest of his normal clothes become a sparkling green jacket. Finally, he claps twice again, making his hair turn black and forming a pair of drum sticks in one hand.)

Midorichou: Haeru wingu, Midorichou yo!

Niji: This is Midorichou, your drummer. (a spotlight appears on Midorichou, who is already comfortable at the drums)

(Whitney looks at the topaz in her ring, unsure.)

Niji: Go on, it's not going to hurt...

(Whitney swallows hard, touches the topaz in her ring, and claps twice, making her shirt and shorts turn into a short yellow dress. Touching the ring to her shoes turns them into small boots. Clapping over her head makes Whitney's hair turn yellow and put itself up in a ponytail, as well as making a yellow sash and small topazes appear on her costume. Whitney claps again, and lace appears on her costume.)

Ierochou: Haeru wingu, Ierochou yo!

Niji: Pesenting Kochou and the Beautiflies, everyone! (everyone claps in agreement.)

Akaichou: Come on guys, let's practice for the battle!

(everyone starts playing a pop beat as Kochou begins to sing)

Kochou: There's music in the air,
News is in the makin'!
Music in the air,
Somethin' big is breakin'!


Kochou and others: Wow, look around at the sight and sound
Did we take you by surprise?
Bet you can't believe your eyes!

(oh) Whoa!
Well this is only the beginning,
Only the beginning!

(Now!) Now's the time when our star's on the climb!
Watch us try for the prize,
We're already on the rise...


Others: The rise! Surprise! Oh!

Kochou and others: Well this is only the beginning,
Only the beginning, Only the beginning!
Only the beginning, Only the beginning!

Wow, look around at the sight and sound,
Did we take you by surprise?
Bet you can't believe your eyes!

(oh) Whoa!
Well this is only the beginning,
Only the beginning....

(Now!) Now's the time when our star's on the climb!
Watch us try for the prize,
We're already on the rise...


Others: (The rise! Surprise! Oh!)

Kochou and others: Well this is only the beginning,
Only the beginning, Only the beginning!
Only the beginning, Only the beginning!


(The band continues to play as Kochou speaks)

Kochou(voiceover): As I played that first song, it felt so nice, and my mind began to turn to dreams of the future. (the music continues as we see shots of the red carpet entrances from earlier, magazine covers with Kochou's face on them, CD's of the band flying off of a shelf, Kochou singing on a TV screen, a shot of a music download site with the band at the top of the download charts, and the like) I was snapped back to reality by one burning question: (the scene returns to reality, where the band is still playing) How was my mother going to react to my new identity?

(A shot of Delia appears)

Kochou: Where's my samurai? (Kochou glows purple for a few moments, revealing Ash when the light fades)

Others: Fly away... (the others glow their respective colors for a moment before returning to normal, then leave the lounge; Niji not very far behind. They climb back upstairs and into the lab. Prof. Oak is now off the phone, but still writing on a clipboard.)

Prof. Oak: Hmm...I swear that I didn't turn the radio on earlier... so where was that great song coming from? (turns on the radio)

Radio announcer: And coming in at number 3, it's Kochou and the Beautiflies with "Only the Beginning"! (Ash's mouth drops to the floor as Kochou's voice drifts through the speakers: There's music in the air, news is in the makin'! music in the air, somethin' big is breakin'!)

May: We made it on the radio????

Brock: I guess someone heard us playing...

Crystal: WOO-HOO!!! We made it on the radio! We made it on the radio! We made it on the radio!... (grabs Brock and drags him all over the floor) We made it on the radio! We made it on the radio! We made it on the radio!...

Brock: Yeah, Crystal; I--ow!--know you're--oof!--excited about--ow!--us getting on the--ow!--radio...

Kochou(voiceover): Crystal's excitement led us to have permanant custody of Niji...we parted ways that afternoon with plans to meet at the park where the battle was being held. (the scene shifts to show Ash walking home, Niji by his side.) The walk home was relatively uneventful...until she showed up.

(Off in the distance, we see a red haired girl in a pale yellow shirt and blue shorts seated on a bench by the bus stop, reading a book. She looks up from the book for a moment and smiles at Ash. Ash nervously tugs at his shirt collar.)

Kochou(voiceover): Misty and I had known each other for a very long time, and every time I saw her, I got nervous...I wanted to tell her that I loved her and that she was beautiful, but my nervousness always got in the way. (Ash is quivering profusely as he approaches the bench.)

Misty: Hi, Ash... (she scoots over to make room for Ash. Ash notices that Misty's listening to music on some headphones.) Who's your little Beautifly friend here?

Kochou(voiceover): Although Misty was usually afraid of bugs, she seemed okay around Beautiflies...and Niji was no exception.

Misty: She's beautiful...

Ash: Yeah...she glows like she does because....uh....she's a special variety of Shiny!

Misty: Oh?

Niji(whispering): I am NOT Shiny!

Ash(whispering): Just play along! (to Misty) Yeah, Prof. Oak let me take care of her. Her name's Niji.

Niji: Beautifly! (Misty nervously pets Niji)

Kochou(voiceover): So I'd gotten around the hurdle of explaining Niji to Misty...next was how to explain my new identity without alerting her that I was also Kochou....

Ash: What'cha listening to?

Misty: This new band, Kochou and the Beautiflies. (lifts a headphone off one ear, making "Only the Beginning" fill the air. Ash listens in shock.) I particularly like Kochou himself...he seems like a nice person--but not as nice as you! (playfully glomps Ash, but Ash digs his way out of Misty's death grip)
Ash: You think so?

Misty: Yeah! I did hear that he was coming to the battle of the bands tomorrow.

Ash: I was planning on going to the battle myself--that is if I'm not busy with chores tomorrow... (he climbs off the bench and starts on his way)

Misty: I hope you can come! (waves goodbye as Ash and Niji disappear down the path.)

(Ash continues running down the road as Kochou speaks again)

Kochou(voiceover): Now I had more reason to be at the battle than ever--Misty was going to be there! (Ash dances down the road as he thinks of Misty) Little did I know, there was trouble in the air. (We see three shadowy figures watching the stage area in the park: one male, one female, and one feline.)

To Be Continued...

(we see the word "Next...")

Akaichou(voiceover): Next time, on "Kochou and the Beautiflies"....

(we see a brown haired boy and a maroon haired girl clad in Rocket attire)

Akaichou(voiceover): The battle of the bands is underway, and the theater is saved... (we see shots of the band playing and Kochou singing) but when we meet up with two Rocket grunts that want to steal our spotlight, (we see the Rockets again) a game of Meowth and Rattata begins as we try to save ourselves from their evil plot. (We see the band fleeing from a burning house, and Misty tending to Kochou's burn wounds.) Can we survive and outlast them? Find out next time!

RE: The Adventures of Kochou and the Beautiflies

(We see the word "Previously" flash on the screen as an instrumental of "Only the Beginning" plays in the background)

Niji(voiceover): Previously, on "Kochou and the Beautiflies"...

(We see a shot of Kochou singing from the previous episode)

Kochou: There's music in the air,
News is in the makin'!
Music in the air,
Somethin' big is breakin'!


Niji(voiceover): Something big definitely is breaking when Kochou and the Beautifies step on the pop music scene! See, when a boy named Ash released me from the jar I was trapped in... (we see a shot of Ash freeing Niji from the previous episode) I was bound by duty to grant his deepest desires and be his friend for life. (we see a shot of Ash talking to Niji) So far his deepest one is to save the town theater. (we se a shot of the Theater de Pallete) so I decided to help him out by granting him the ability to transform into the handsome pop superstar Kochou...(we see shots of Ash transforming into Kochou) and his friends into his band, the Beautiflies! (we see shots of May, Brock, Crystal, and Whitney transforming.) It looks like smooth sailing from here...or is it? (we see the three shadowy figures from the previous episode.)

(upbeat music begins as we see the title)

Me and my friends are Beautiflies!

Kochou: Hey! My name is Kochou!

Exciting adventures, glamour and fame!

Kochou: Now a Beautifly, never the same!

Come on, take flight and fly away now!

Kochou: Hey! My name is Kochou! (Kochou poses with his bandmates, Misty, and Niji before the title, which is lit up like a neon sign)

Episode 2: Caught in the Crossfire

(We open on a scene of the park, where various personnel are rushing to get a stage ready. Kochou speaks as we zoom over to three shadows watching from a bush.)

Kochou(voiceover): Preparations were going at a feverish pace for the battle, but little did they know, that there was trouble brewing...an old adversary of mine. (the three shadows; a brown haired boy and a maroon haired girl, both wearing the familiar black "R" outfits of a Team Rocket grunt, and a Meowth watch as the stage takes shape.) But these guys were way different from the Rockets I often met on my travels. (we see a shadowed shot of Jessie and James in the background for a moment.) Rather than obsessing over my companion, Pikachu; these Rockets were more interested in becoming stars themselves.

Kage: There it is...the Theater de Pallete.

Yami: It looks rather nice, Kage...I don't see why they're trying to tear it down...

Kage: I dunno either, Yami...but it sure would make a nice hideout!

Meowth: You're forgettin' da important part, Nincada: In order to own da teater, you've gotta prove you're da hottest band around!

Yami: We can become stars? Then that only sweetens the deal!

(Music begins as we enter a dream sequence)

Yami(voiceover): I...

Kage(voiceover): Wanna...

Yami(voiceover): Be...

Kage(voiceover): A Star...

(we see Kage, Yami, and Meowth riding on a shooting star during an interlude)

Yami: Each night, I sit and dream, of the stars I see in magazines... (we see Yami relaxing in her bed, reading a magazine with Kochou on the cover) I love, to lose myself, in the stories of the lives they lead, yeah...

Kage: Why can't, we be like them? Livin' life with fortune and fame? (we see shots of various Kochou merchandise)

Yami: I know, I've got what it takes!

Kage: I've just gotta start on my way!

Yami: I wanna be a star, star, star... (we see Kage, Yami, and Meowth riding a star again)

Kage: Gonna have my, name up in lights! (we see a marquee proclaiming "The Rocket Trio Tonite")

Yami: I wanna be a star, star, star...

Kage: Gonna blaze across the sky like a meteorite! (we see Kage, as a human comet, streaking across the night sky)

Yami: My fans, will truly adore me! (we see a crowd of fans mobbing a stage) Every time I dance and sing my songs! (we see Kage, Yami and Meowth singing and dancing on the stage)

Kage: We'll ride in big fancy car... (we see Kage, Yami, and Meowth riding in a limo) and take all our friends along, yeah... (The limo sprouts other passengers inside)

Yami All round, the world we'll go! (we see a map of the world, with a purple dotted line signifying Kage and Yami's path around the various countries, with stars signifying stops on their tour.) Giving shows from East to West! (with my Rocket friends!)

Meowth: And each night, when you step on dat stage... (the crowd shows Kage and Yami running onstage to greet a crowd) da crowd will say "You're da best!" (the crowd screams that as Meowth says it)

Kage: I wanna be a star, star, star...

Yami: Gonna be the, best in the world! (we see a shot of the world, but the continent is shaped like an R)

Kage: I wanna be a star, star, star...

Yami: Gonna be the absolutely most famous teenage girl! (We see Yami mobbed by fans as she walks down the red carpet.)

Kage: I...

Yami: I wanna be..

Kage: A star, star!

Yami: I wanna be a star! (the three Rockets laugh to themselves as the dream sequence fades)

Meowth: We won't much get done if we just sit out here and sing about our dreams...

Yami: You're right, Meowth...Team Rocket; huddle! (With that, the three Rockets huddle together, discussing song ideas.)

(The sky changes from a starry night to a sunny day, we see a crowd gathered around the stage as the various bands play. Kochou speaks as the camera looks around the crowd.)

Kochou(voiceover): The day of the battle dawned just perfectly: warm and sunny, with not a drop of rain in the forecast. Add to that the fact there was a wide array of awesome music being played, and you could say it was a day in paradise...but by the time we arrived there, we knew there was trouble in paradise. (We see Ash and the gang approach Gary and his band in the backstage area. The expression on Gary's face is dramatically different from his usual ****y smile, instead, it's a glum frown.)

Ash: Gary? Why the long face?

Brock: Yeah, usually you're all gung-ho and Mr. I'm-Better-Than-You!

May: Is something wrong?

Gary: Yeah, something's wrong...the boys and I were booted out of the competition because of some new act that challenging all the other bands...The Rocket Trio, I believe...no matter who plays against them, they always seem to win!

Crystal: Really? I've never heard of them...

Gary: I've never heard of them either...until they beat us by singing their song...and the judges declared them the winner of the round, even though our song was clearly better than theirs!

Ash: That wasn't very nice!

Gary: I know it's not either...this is gonna sound like an odd request coming from your rival, Ash...but if you can find Kochou and the Beautiflies around here, will you tell them to play as hard as they can and beat the Rocket Trio?

Ash: Sure!

Gary: Thanks...it would make me and the other bands feel better. (waves goodbye as Ash and the gang as they walk off to a backstage area.)

(Niji watches as Ash and the gang arrive in the backstage area.)

Niji: What did Gary want?

Ash: He's not happy because The Rocket Trio beat his band and all the other bands unfairly...so he asked us to play as hard as we can!

Niji: You know what that means, guys...showtime!

May: Yeah! (she touches the ruby in her ring and claps twice, her shirt lengthens and gains silver buttons. Next, she taps the ring on her shoes, making them turn into red high heels. Upon tapping the ring on her legs, she gains a white skirt with rubies dotting it. Finally, she claps over her head twice, and an electric guitar appears in her hands, as well as her hair turning red.)

Akaichou: Haeru wingu, Akaichou yo!

(Brock touches the emerald in his ring and claps twice, making his shirt turn silver. Upon touching the jewel to his legs, he gains a pair of emerald studded pants and golden shoes, also studded with emeralds. Next, Brock claps twice over his head, making the rest of his normal clothes become a sparkling green jacket. Finally, he claps twice again, making his hair turn black and forming a pair of drum sticks in one hand.)

Midorichou: Haeru wingu, Midorichou yo!

(Crystal touches the sapphire in her ring and claps twice, making glaves appear on her hands. When the sapphire is tapped on her feet, her shoes become aqua sandals studded with sapphires. Next, Crystal claps over her head, making her slip into a shirt that starts out royal blue at the top, then turns white at the bottom; followed by a aqua skirt. Finally, she claps twice again, and her hair is magically braided, plus a harmonica appears in her hand.)

Mizuirochou: Haeru wingu, Mizuirochou yo!

(Whitney touches the topaz in her ring and claps twice, making her shirt and shorts turn into a short yellow dress. Touching the ring to her shoes turns them into small boots. Clapping over her head makes Whitney's hair turn yellow and put itself up in a ponytail, as well as making a yellow sash and small topazes appear on her costume. Whitney claps again, and lace appears on her costume.)

Ierochou: Haeru wingu, Ierochou yo!

Niji: Your turn, Kochou!

Ash(holds his hand in the air, then sings in a noticeably older sounding voice): Ai-yai-yai, I'm your little Beautifly! (Ash's hand begins to glow) Green, black, and blue; make the colors in the sky!

(MUSIC-"Beautifly" (instrumental))

(We see a glowing outline of Ash's body against the background of Beautifly wings. As Ash hangs in this position, his torso begins to glow purple, and a silver and purple shirt appears on him. Next, a checkered jacket appears over that in a flash of purple. Next, we look at Ash's legs as sparkling black pants appear on his legs in a flash of blue, and silver shoes appear on his feet. The view next shifts to Ash's head, where we see his eyes finally open. His normally black hair begins to lengthen and turn silver. A white rose appears in the right pocket of the jacket, which the young man holds in one hand as he poses for the audience.)

(Music cut)

(Meanwhile, the MC is about to acknowledge Kage and Yami as the winners, until lights com up on the stage, revealing Kochou and the band)

Kage: Who're you?

Kochou: I'm Kochou; and this is my band, the Beautiflies! (wild cheers and applause) And we'd like to challenge you!

Yami: Another challenge, huh? Let's see what you're made of, Beauti-boy! (to Kage) Ready to sing?

Kage: You bet!

(music begins)

Kage and Yami: Outta our way, keep outta our way!
Outta our way, we ain't playin' around!
Outta our way, keep outta our way!
Outta our way, we''ve got to cover ground!


Yami: I've got what it takes
And I'm on the attack!
Goin' after the prize,
And nothin's gonna hold me back!


Kage and Yami: Outta our way, keep outta our way!
Outta our way, you're gonna pay!
Outta our way, keep outta our way!
Outta our way, don't you get in our way!

Outta our way, keep outta our way!
Outta our way, we ain't playin' around!
Outta our way, keep outta our way!
Outta our way, we've got to cover ground!


Kage: I've got what it takes
And I'm on the attack!
Goin' after the prize,

Kage and Yami: [i]Outta our way, keep outta our way!
Outta our way, you're gonna pay!
Outta our way, keep outta our way!
Outta our way, don't you get in our way!

Outta our way, keep outta our way
Outta our way, don't you get in our way
Outta our way, keep out of our way!
(wild applause as Kage and Yami bow)

Kage: Top that, Silverhead!

Kochou: There's music in the air,
News is in the makin'!
Music in the air,
Somethin' big is breakin'!


Kochou and others: Wow, look around at the sight and sound
Did we take you by surprise?
Bet you can't believe your eyes!

(oh) Whoa!
Well this is only the beginning,
Only the beginning!

(Now!) Now's the time when our star's on the climb!
Watch us try for the prize,
We're already on the rise...


Others: The rise! Surprise! Oh!

Kochou and others: Well this is only the beginning,
Only the beginning, Only the beginning!
Only the beginning, Only the beginning!

Wow, look around at the sight and sound,
Did we take you by surprise?
Bet you can't believe your eyes!

(oh) Whoa!
Well this is only the beginning,
Only the beginning....

(Now!) Now's the time when our star's on the climb!
Watch us try for the prize,
We're already on the rise...


Others: (The rise! Surprise! Oh!)

Kochou and others: Well this is only the beginning,
Only the beginning, Only the beginning!
Only the beginning, Only the beginning!
(even more cheers and applause as Kochou leads the bows. Kage and Yami, however, aren't pleased by they fact they've been one-upped)

MC: And the winner of this battle is...

Kage: Just a minute! We demand a rematch!

MC: All right...each of you again play one song...whoever gets the best crowd reaction gets the theater and a nice prize!

Yami: Sounds good! (to Meowth, who's tuning an electric guitar) Hit it, Meowth!

(Meowth starts another rock riff)

Kage and Yami: Winning is everything, winning is everything!

Kage: It isn't how you play the game!

Kage and Yami: Winning is everything, winning is everything!

Yami: I want everybody to know my name! (the camera shows us different views of the Rockets performing as Kochou speaks)

Kochou(voiceover): I wasn't too pleased at the fact that these Rockets would stop at nothing to win...but at the same time, I promised myself I would show them that their song was wrong--winning WASN'T everything, and they had no right to insult me with names like "Silverhead" and "Beauty-boy". (Kochou readies his guitar as the crowd cheers for the Rockets)

Yami: Top that, Beauty-boy!

Kochou: Take it, Midorichou!

(Midorichou starts a quick beat, then the other instruments join in)

Others: When tomorrow comes,

Kochou: We'll be walking in the sun...

Kochou and others: Na na na, na na na, na na...

Others: When tomorrow comes,

Kochou: We got nothin' but fun!

Kochou and others: Na na na, na na na, na na...
When tomorrow comes...


Kochou: When tomorrow comes...

Others: When tomorrow comes,

Kochou: We'll be walking in the sun...

Kochou and others: Na na na na, na na na na...

Kochou: When tomorrow comes!

Kochou and others: When tomorrow comes! (even more cheers as Kochou and the band bow again)

MC: The winner...Kochou and the Beautiflies! (more cheers. Kage and Yami grumble as Kochou accepts his prize: the deeds to the theater and their own mansion, plus a check for a billion credits presented by Misty)

Kage: Ooh...Silverhead's going to pay...

Yami: Yeah...when tomorrow comes, Kochou and the Beautiflies will be no more...
(we cut to the scene of a ring of tents overlooking a mansion)

Kochou(voiceover): In addition to receiving ownership of the Theater de Palette, we also received our own mansion and a billion credits to boot...we used most of the credits to fix the theater up. (we see a flashback of the gang doing various handiwork around the theater) and the rest we split: half went to various charities in the area, and half we saved for an emergency fund. (we see Kochou and the band at a bank for a moment before returning to the ring of tents) But before could move in to our new pad, they had to get it ready for us...that first night in the mansion was not to be, thanks to an attempted brushfire not long after we went to bed that night...

(We see Kage and Yami by the ring of tents building up a bonfire of flint, dead grass, and any other flammable material they can find. When the structure is completed, they ignite it and retreat back to a bush. The structure burns for a few minutes before an ember ignites the tent that Kochou is sleeping in. The flames awaken Niji from her sleep)

Niji: Now who could be burning trash at this hour? (yawns, then gasps when she sees the tent begin to burn.) Oh! KOCHOU!!!! (Niji's cry startles Misty, who happens to be coming by to check on the gang.)

Misty: Huh?

Niji: Someone's trying to burn our campsite to the ground! Not to mention Kochou's trapped! (gestures to the slowly burning tent. Misty hears coughing inside Kochou's tent as the Beautiflies flee the burning campsite)

Misty: Niji...if your powers are real...grant me a fireproof shield so I can rescue Kochou!

Niji: Here goes...Shining light, protect from all directions! Shield!

(a green aura appears around Misty)

Misty: Thanks, Niji! (She races into the blazing campsite and throws open the tent, where Kochou is sleeping peacefully. With some help from the others, she carries Kochou to safety just seconds before the spot he was sleeping in is engulfed in flames. We hear sirens in the distance as Misty examines Kochou's slightly burned right hand.)

Niji: Is he okay?

Misty: He's slightly burned in a few places, but otherwise okay. (Kochou's eyes flicker open as he is loaded inside an ambulance.)

(Later, Kochou comes to in a hospital room, just as Nurse Joy finishes examining him. The Beautiflies are gathered around the bed, anticipating Kochou's prognosis)

Nurse Joy: He's going to be all right... (the Beautiflies all breathe a sigh of relief) He's also very fortunate that he was rescued--just a few minutes longer and his condition would've been much worse.

Akaichou: How long until he can perform again?

Nurse Joy: He'll need to stay overnight, so if all goes well, he should be good as new in the morning! (the Beautiflies and Misty cheer)

Mizuirochou: That's great, because we've been asked to give a concert in Ecruteak City next week--all the way in Johto!

Kochou: Really? (he smiles and invites Misty closer) Thank you...you saved my life.

Misty: Anything for my favorite singer! (she gently hugs Kochou as the Beautiflies laugh)

To Be Continued...

(an instrumental of "When Tomorrow Comes" plays in the background as the word "Next" appears on the screen)

Midorichou(voiceover): Next time, on "Kochou and the Beautiflies..."

(we see the gang riding on a Pidgeot)

Midorichou(voicover): When we're asked to perform in Ecruteak City, we're given the royal treatment--the best food...(we see the gang eating) the top accomodations... (we see the gang relaxing in a hotel pool) Even our security is top notch--a team of Beast Riders! (we see three boys aboard the three Legendary Beasts) But the Rockets wanna be sure we're humiliated! (we see shots of various things going wrong and the Rockets performing) Will our show go off without a hitch? Stay tuned!

RE: The Adventures of Kochou and the Beautiflies

(The word "Previously" flashes on the screen as an instrumental of "Only the Beginning" plays in the background)

Niji(voiceover): Previously, on "Kochou and the Beautiflies"....

(We see a shot of Kochou accepting his prize from the previous episode)

Niji(voiceover): The battle of the bands got underway, but something was amiss when we arrived. (we see the dialogue with Gary from the last episode) The other bands were being unfairly challenged and beaten by a trio of Rockets, and they would stop at nothing to win! (we see Kage, Yami, and Meowth performing) But Kochou sang his hardest, and the Beautifies ultimately won the battle, ownership of the Theater, plus a few other perks as well. (we see shots of Kochou singing, followed by shots of the billion credit check and the mansion. We were supposed to move into our new digs the following morning, but the Rockets set a brushfire that ignited our campsite and almost scorched Kochou! (we see the Beautiflies fleeing the brushfire and Kochou coughing inside a smoky tent) Thankfully, Misty saved Kochou before he could get seriously hurt. (we see Misty rescuing Kochou) Kochou only needed an overnight hospital stay to recover, but he was pretty thankful Misty rescued him. (we see Kochou and Misty hug)

Today we've been asked to put on a show in Johto..I wonder what adventures await us there? (we see three shadowed figures aboard the Legendary Beasts)

(upbeat music begins as we see the title)

Me and my friends are Beautiflies!

Kochou: Hey! My name is Kochou!

Exciting adventures, glamour and fame!

Kochou: Now a Beautifly, never the same!

Come on, take flight and fly away now!

Kochou: Hey! My name is Kochou! (Kochou poses with his bandmates, Misty, and Niji before the title, which is lit up like a neon sign)

Episode 3: Beautifly and the Beasts

(We see a shot of the mansion from the outside as Kochou speaks)

Kochou(voiceover): Despite the brushfire the night before, we moved into the mansion as planned. (We see Ash, Delia, Misty, and the others helping the movers) Mom thought it was great I was moving into the presence of her favorite star--but unbeknownst to her, I was also the favorite star. (We see Ash hugging Delia as she goes to help the movers in another part of the house)

(The scene shifts to Misty behind a desk taking a call.)

Kochou(voiceover): During my hospital stay, I befriended Fern, a former DJ for KNTO who now owned a record label. (we see a black haired girl bringing a gift for Kochou) Not only did she get us a record deal, she also offered Misty the chance to be our publicist. (we return to Misty behind the desk again) Thanks to the two of them, word about us began to spread to places far away...

Misty(on the phone): Mm-hmm...okay...you'll give them the royal treatment, huh? All right, thank you...bye. (hangs up. Niji watches as Misty makes a few notes.)

Niji: Making a few preparations for us to come to Johto?

Misty: Yeah...I've secured the royal treatment for you guys!

Niji: Oh?

Misty: You'll get a charter flight there from Lugia Airways, the best food, the penthouse in the Hotel Ecruteak...and the top security from their elite Beast riders!

Niji: Oh, I've heard of them--didn't they save the world from some Legendary hunter and heal a dark Beast some time ago?

Misty: Those are the riders I'm talking about! (Crystal overhears this as she walks in the room)

Crystal: Our security are some Beast Riders? (Misty nods) Wow!

Brock: I hear they saved the world from some crazed hunter a while back...(gets some supplies from the refrigerator and starts making a sandwich)

Niji: Pack your bags, Beautiflies! (Crystal and Brock hurry off to get ready as Misty answers the phone again to negotiate some more)

Kochou(voiceover): We decided to depart for Johto the next morning...and by the time that morning arrived, you could almost feel the excitement in the air. (we see the gang, Misty, and Niji walk into the airport and duck into an alcove out of the view of the passengers.)

Misty: You know what time it is, Beautiflies! (everyone nods)

(May touches the ruby in her ring and claps twice, her shirt lengthens and gains silver buttons. Next, she taps the ring on her shoes, making them turn into red high heels. Upon tapping the ring on her legs, she gains a white skirt with rubies dotting it. Finally, she claps over her head twice, and an electric guitar appears in her hands, as well as her hair turning red.)

Akaichou: Haeru wingu, Akaichou yo!

(Brock touches the emerald in his ring and claps twice, making his shirt turn silver. Upon touching the jewel to his legs, he gains a pair of emerald studded pants and golden shoes, also studded with emeralds. Next, Brock claps twice over his head, making the rest of his normal clothes become a sparkling green jacket. Finally, he claps twice again, making his hair turn black and forming a pair of drum sticks in one hand.)

Midorichou: Haeru wingu, Midorichou yo!

(Crystal touches the sapphire in her ring and claps twice, making glaves appear on her hands. When the sapphire is tapped on her feet, her shoes become aqua sandals studded with sapphires. Next, Crystal claps over her head, making her slip into a shirt that starts out royal blue at the top, then turns white at the bottom; followed by a aqua skirt. Finally, she claps twice again, and her hair is magically braided, plus a harmonica appears in her hand.)

Mizuirochou: Haeru wingu, Mizuirochou yo!

(Whitney touches the topaz in her ring and claps twice, making her shirt and shorts turn into a short yellow dress. Touching the ring to her shoes turns them into small boots. Clapping over her head makes Whitney's hair turn yellow and put itself up in a ponytail, as well as making a yellow sash and small topazes appear on her costume. Whitney claps again, and lace appears on her costume.)

Ierochou: Haeru wingu, Ierochou yo!

Ash(holds his hand in the air, then sings in a noticeably older sounding voice): Ai-yai-yai, I'm your little Beautifly! (Ash's hand begins to glow) Green, black, and blue; make the colors in the sky!

(MUSIC-"Beautifly" (instrumental))

(We see a glowing outline of Ash's body against the background of Beautifly wings. As Ash hangs in this position, his torso begins to glow purple, and a silver and purple shirt appears on him. Next, a checkered jacket appears over that in a flash of purple. Next, we look at Ash's legs as sparkling black pants appear on his legs in a flash of blue, and silver shoes appear on his feet. The view next shifts to Ash's head, where we see his eyes finally open. His normally black hair begins to lengthen and turn silver. A white rose appears in the right pocket of the jacket, which the young man holds in one hand as he poses for the audience.)

(Music cut)

Misty: Looking good, Beautiflies! (the gang walks into the crowd towards a Lugia Airways terminal, tickets in hand. After being checked by security, they wait for their Lugia to arrive.)

(An hour or so later, a Lugia wearing a silver rose lands at the terminal. The magnificent bird Pokemon decides to sun itself as its cabin is opened for passengers to board.)

Niji: Here's our ride...

Akaichou: He's beautiful!

Midorichou: I'll say... (follows Akaichou aboard)

(Once everyone is aboard, the Lugia soars off into the sky!)

(After a while, Mizuirochou glances out the cabin window, bored.)

Mizuirochou: Are we there yet?

Ierochou: We'll be there when the pilot says we're there, okay? (Mizuirochou slumps to the floor, dejected.)

Niji: If you're so bored, why don't you guys practice a song or two? I have your instruments all here. (gestures to the gang's instruments, all set up and ready to be played.)

Ierochou: Ooh, good idea! (runs to the digital piano by Mizuirochou's mike. Midorichou settles in at the drums and practices a beat while everyone else tunes up. Kochou claps twice, summoning an acoustic guitar to compliment his electric sitting nearby. He tunes up while watching the clouds roll by.)

(After a few minutes, everyone's tuned and ready to play)

Kochou: Let's start with that one we've been working on to warm up, okay? (everyone nods)

(Kochou starts a catchy melody as Midorichou keeps a light beat in the background)

Kochou: I know where I'm going, don't'cha wanna come too?
I got my reservations, and I got one for you...
Plane's leaving just after dark,
There's alway's room for a lovin' heart!
I know where I'm going, don't'cha wanna come too?


Kochou and Akaichou: I know my destination is waiting for me... (We see a map of the world, with the gang's route as a silver dotted line. Ecruteak City is notated as a star)
I got no hesitation, that's where I wanna be! (We see a shot of Ecruteak City again before returning to the band playing)

Kochou: By the time that the sun comes up, (We see a sunrise on Ecruteak City)
I'll be drinkin' from a lovin' cup! (we see Kochou strolling along a street, holding hands with Misty, before we return to the band again)
I know where I'm going, don't'cha wanna come too?

(the music picks up)

Kochou and others: Don't'cha wanna come?
Don't'cha wanna ride?
Don't'cha wanna be there by my side?


Kochou: Hand in hand, holdin' onto,

Kochou and others: The sweet salvation that's waiting for me and you!
I know why I'm singing, don't'cha wanna sing too?
Can't you hear the bells a'ringing? Let the spirit move you!


Kochou: Just close your eyes and let it flow,
Lean your head back and let it go!


Kochou and others: I know where I'm going, don't'cha wanna come too?

(A spotlight comes up on Mizuirochou as she solos on harmonica for a moment)

Kochou and others: Don't'cha wanna come?
Don't'cha wanna ride?
Don't'cha wanna be there by my side?


Kochou: Hand in hand, holdin' onto,

Kochou and others: The sweet salvation that's waiting for me and you! (Mizuirochou adds a riff in the background)
I know where I'm going, don't'cha wanna come too?
I got my reservations, and I got one for you!
I know why I'm singing, don't'cha wanna sing too?
Can't you hear the bells a-ringing? Let the spirit move you, spirit move you, yeah!


(Mizuirochou adds another riff in the background)

Kochou: I know where I'm going, don'tcha wanna come too? (we hear Kochou singing this as the scene fades to the Lugia coming in for a landing)

Mizuirochou: We're here! (she steps out of the cabin to see three armored boys, each aboard a Beast)

Midorichou: So these three are our security...(steps off the exit ramp)

(We cut to see Kage, Yami, and Meowth watching them from a bush)

Kage: So the brushfire didn't work...

Yami: We can always upstage them, so WE hit the top of the charts here! (we see a music chart with "The Rocket Trio" at number 1)

(Back with the band, a young woman meets up with the gang and the riders)

Woman: Welcome to Johto, everyone...I'm Mary, head DJ on WJTO. These three are Josh (a yellow armored boy aboard a Raikou waves) Ace, (a red armored boy aboard an Entei waves) and Aravan... (a blue armored boy aboard a Suicune waves)

Josh: So this is the hit band everyone's talking about...

Ace: Aren't they the band that sings "Only the Beginning" and "When Tomorrow Comes"?

Aravan: Yeah! They've topped the charts in Kanto already, and "When Tomorrow Comes" is number 6 on the charts here...

Mary: "Only the Beginning" stands at number 8, and climbing fast!

Kochou: Pleased to meet all of you...I'm Kochou; the leader of the band...(gestures to Akaichou) This is Akaichou, on guitar and vocals...Midorichou, on drums...(Midorichou waves hello) Mizuirochou on wind instruments and vocals...(Mizuirochou waves hello) and Ierochou, on keyboards. (Ierochou waves hello)

Mary: You all must be tired from your journey, so let's get you settled in the hotel...

(That night, the band is on the patio in their hotel room, ready to rehearse. Mizuirochou paces the stage, and Midorichou practices a restless beat.)

Mizuirochou: Where IS Kochou, anyway?

Niji: I'll go wake him up... (she flies off into the ornately decorated room, where we see Ash lying on one of the beds, snoozing) Hey!

Ash: Wha? (he sits up and yawns) What's the matter?

Niji: Your bandmates are waiting for you outside, so come rehearse!

Ash: Okay... (walks onto the patio and raises his hand in the air, unaware that Josh is watching him. He begins to sing in a noticably older voice) Ai-yai-yai, I'm your little Beautifly! (Josh watches in shock as Ash's hand begins to glow) Green, black, and blue; make the colors in the sky!

(MUSIC-"Beautifly" (instrumental))

(We see a shocked look on Josh's face for a moment before we see a glowing outline of Ash's body against the background of Beautifly wings. As Ash hangs in this position, his torso begins to glow purple, and a silver and purple shirt appears on him. Next, a checkered jacket appears over that in a flash of purple. Next, we look at Ash's legs as sparkling black pants appear on his legs in a flash of blue, and silver shoes appear on his feet. The view next shifts to Ash's head, where we see his eyes finally open. His normally black hair begins to lengthen and turn silver. A white rose appears in the right pocket of the jacket, which the young man holds in one hand as he poses for the audience.)

(Music cut)

(Josh rubs his eyes, amazed as to what he just saw)

Josh(thinking): Tell me I didn't see that... (he starts off towards the rider's quarters nearby the hotel when Kage, Yami, and Meowth; in disguise as newspaper reporters, approach)

Kage: Hold it, great rider!

Yami: We've received a report of an odd flash of light in the area, and think it's a clue to Kochou's real identity. Could you tell us what you saw?

Josh: Uh...

Kage: What did you see?

Yami: Did you see Kochou's true identity?

Meowth: Could you see anyting at all?

Josh: Look, all I saw was a bright flash of light...it was probably just the lights on their stage, okay?

Yami: Sounds good to us! Thanks for your time! (Josh rolls his eyes as the Rockets disappear)

(The Rockets return to the bush they were hiding in and remove their disguises--then Yami realizes that Josh gave them the slip)

Yami: Oh great!

Kage: Huh?

Yami: The Beast rider gave us the slip, and we were so close to finding out Kochou's true identity too! (she clenches her fists in frustration and bursts into song) Why me? Why me? Why me, why did you do it to me? (Unbeknownst to Yami, Midorichou is listening from another bush)

Midorichou: Hey...that sounded like a good song! (quickly scribbles down what Yami sung on a notepad before retreating to the hotel.)

(The next morning, the Beast Riders arrive to wake the band)

Aravan: Rise and shine, everyone!

Mizuirochou: Ah..nothing like a good rehearsal before bedtime... (she stretches)

Akaichou: Not to mention Midorichou came up with a great song idea last night! (climbs out of bed and gets dressed)

Ace: Hurry and get ready--the rainbow bird, Ho'oh; has heard of you, and seeks to hear you perform.

Akaichou: Really?

Midorichou: I've always wanted to perform for a Legendary! (everyone scrambles to get ready)

(Later, we see the gang at the top of the Tin Tower, setting up. Kochou kneels before Ho'oh as the riders watch expectantly.)

Ho'oh: Rise, Kochou...(Kochou rises from his kneeling postion) Although you're just starting out, I forsee your music is destined to become timeless, and you will enjoy great popularity for a long time. But the road to stardom won't be easy, and there will be many dangers along the way...

Kochou: I know...

Ho'oh: The Rocket Trio will stop at nothing to stop you...but if you keep proving to them you have the better talents, you will go far. Now...I have heard of your songs...perhaps you could play one for me?

Kochou: Okay! (he retreats to his waiting guitar and mike at center stage) We wrote this one last night...it's called "Why Me?"

(a techno beat begins)

Kochou: Why me? (why me)
Why me? (why me)
Why me, why did you do it to me?

Others: Hey, heya!

Kochou: Why me? (why me)
Why me? (why me)
Why me, I thought there's no guarantee!

Others: Hey, heya!

Kochou: Why me? (me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me)

Somethings going wrong, you're much too close
You're much to close to my heart
When I dance with you, it's like looking up
It's like a shock in the dark
When you touch me, I can feel the music
I'm falling up to the sky
When you kiss me, I can feel the music
And there's a voice crying, "why?"

Why me?
(why me)
Why me? (why me)
Why me, why did you do it to me?[/i]

Others: Hey, heya!

Kochou: Why me? (why me)
Why me? (why me)
Why me, I know there's no guarantees!

Others: Hey, heya hey!

Kochou: Babe, why did you do it to me?
Why me?

Dance me throught the night, I skipped the sleep
Fallin' in love's not a crime!
Take me on a ride to liberty,
But, baby, please take your time!

Why me?
(why me)
Why me? (why me)
Why me, why did you do it to me?

Others: Hey, heya!

Kochou: Why me?

Babe, why did you do it to me?
Why me?
Why me?

Why me?


(As the song is in progress, we see Kage and Yami in a bush, astounded by what they're hearing.)

Yami: Wait--that song is--but I didn't--

Meowth: You sang dose lines after we missed figuring out Kochou's identity last night, remember?

Yami: I know, but I didn't expect this!

Kage: It's settled then...drastic times call for drastic measures...(the three Rockets huddle together)

Kochou(voiceover): After a day of sightseeing and exploring... (we see the Beast Riders guiding the gang around various locations in Ecruteak.) it came time for the big concert. (we see an arena packed full of people) But we didn't know that we had a few uninvited guests in the audience as well...

(We see the band backstage, getting ready. Midorichou admires himself in a mirror, and Akaichou tunes her guitar as showtime draws near.)

Ierochou: Won't be long before Mary gets here...

Aravan: I can't wait for you guys to play...

Ace: I wanna hear you as much as all those people out there do!

(No sooner does Ace say this, does a crash come from onstage. The band races to see what's happening and spot Kage and Yami onstage.)

Mizuirochou: Hey!

Midorichou: I don't remember the Rocket Trio being on the program....

Mizuirochou: I have the perfect way to get them offstage...(tiptoes to the wings with a saxophone)

(On the stage, Meowth starts a rock riff)

Kage and Yami: Winning is everything, winning is everything!

Kage: It isn't how you play the game!

Kage and Yami: Winning is everything, winning is everything!

Yami: I want everybody to know my name!

(At this, Mizuirochou blasts a high note, sending the Rockets flying! Mary watches as the Rockets disappear with a *ping*.)

Mary: Thanks, Mizuirochou...(the crowd hushes as Mary comes onstage) And now, give it up for Kochou and the Beautiflies!

(the crowd roars as Mizuirochou and Midorichou lead the band into the song on saxophone and drums, respectively.)

Kochou and others: Come on and let the good times roll!
We're gonna stay here till we soothe our souls!
If it takes all night long, yeah...
Come on and let the good times roll!
We're gonna stay here till we soothe our souls!
If it takes all night long!


Kochou: I can tell ya, the evenin' sun is sinking low,
The clock on the wall says it's time to go!
I got my plans, I don't know about you,
I'll tell you exactly what I'm gonna do!


Kochou and others: Get in the groove and let the good times roll!
I'm gonna stay here till I soothe my soul!
If it takes all night long, yeah!
Everybody let the good times roll!
We're gonna stay here till we soothe our souls!
If it takes all night long!


Kochou: Yeah, it might be one o'clock, and it might be three,
Time don't mean that much to me!
I ain't felt this good, since I don't know when!
I might not feel this good again!


Kochou and others: Everybody let the good times roll!
We're gonna stay here till we soothe our souls!
If it takes all night long!


Kochou: And all night, (all night)
And all night, (all night)
And all night, all night long! (all night)
Somebody say bye, team! All night long! (all night)
And all ni-i-i-i-i-ight, all night long!

The Beast Riders watch and listen off in the distance as Mizuirochou breaks off to solo)

Josh: You know, guys...Ho'oh was right...

Ace: Why?

Josh: I have a feeling this band's going to be timeless...they may not look it now, but they will be soon. (continues to listen)

Kochou and others: Come on and let the good times roll!
We're gonna stay here till we soothe our souls!
If it takes all night long, yeah...
Everybody let the good times roll!
We're gonna stay here till we soothe our souls!
If it takes all night long!


Kochou: And all night, (all night)
And all night, (all night)
And all night, all night long! (all night)
Somebody say bye, team! All night long! (all night)
And all ni-ight, all night long!

(Niji watches from a tree as Mizuirochou leads the band into a dance break)

To Be Continued...

(an instrumental of "When Tomorrow Comes" begins as the word "Next..." appears onscreen)

Mizuirochou(voiceover): Next time, on "Kochou and the Beautiflies"...

(we see a shot of a game corner and various games)

Mizuirochou(voiceover): A gig at the Game Corner turns into more than it appears when we receive a tip it's really a Rocket hideout! (we see Officer Jenny talking to the band) It looks like the makings of a mystery, but we can't find any clues to prove the hideout hunch. (we see the gang looking for clues) But things go from bad to worse when the Rockets try to catch Niji! (we see Niji flying away from the Rockets) Can we rescue her and solve the mystery? Tune in tomorrow and see!

RE: The Adventures of Kochou and the Beautiflies

(We see the word "Previously" on the screen as an instrumental of "Only the Beginning" plays in the background)

Niji(voiceover): Previously, on "Kochou and the Beautiflies"...

(we see a shot of the gang rehearsing from the previous episode)

Niji(voiceover): Our fame has apparently spread to Johto, where our two biggest hits are in the top ten! (we see shots of music charts, wth "Only the Beginning" at number 8 and "When Tomorrow Comes" at number 6) Not only are our accomodations top notch... (we see shots of the Hotel Ecruteak's penthouse) our security is, too! (we see shots of the Beast riders from the previous episode.) But, one of them saw Ash transform by mistake, (we see Josh's shocked face as Ash transforms) and would've blown his cover had he not seen through those Rockets' cheap disguises. (we see a shot of Kage and Yami in disguise from the preious episode) Thankfully, our show went smoothly despite the Rockets' crashing it. (we see Kochou singing from the previous episode.)

Tonight though, we have a gig in Celadon City, but the venue is more than it appears!

(upbeat music begins as we see the title)

Me and my friends are Beautiflies!

Kochou: Hey! My name is Kochou!

Exciting adventures, glamour and fame!

Kochou: Now a Beautifly, never the same!

Come on, take flight and fly away now!

Kochou: Hey! My name is Kochou! (Kochou poses with his bandmates, Misty, and Niji before the title, which is lit up like a neon sign)

Episode 4: Get Ready for the Game Corner!

(We see a cab pull up to the curb nearby the Game Corner. Ash, May, Brock, Crystal, Whitney, and Misty all emerge from the cab and stretch, refreshed by the ride.)

Ash: Charge the fare to my cab pass, please. (presents an orange card with a picture of a cab on it to the driver)

Driver: All right, a three block trip comes to 500 credits. (he swipes the card, then gives it back to Ash) Have a good evening, guys. (Ash waves goodbye as the cab speeds off into the traffic)

Crystal: 500 credits? Not bad for three blocks.

Misty: Enough about the fare! We have a gig to go to! (she leads the gang inside the Game Corner, where various patrons are playing the various games)

Whitney: Wow...

Ash: This place sure has grown since the last time I was here!

Brock: Which was three years ago, when we happened to find that it was all a cover for a Rocket base.

Misty: I remember that! Ran the Rockets out of town, and made sure they wouldn't return!

Niji: But look at it now...not a trace of that in sight! (The camera looks around the various slots and game tables to illustrate Niji's point)

May: It's beautiful...I want to try some of the games!

Crystal: Me too!

Misty: Hmm...what do you think, Niji?

Niji: Well....

Everyone else: PLEAAAAAAASSEEE???? (they glance at Niji with Growlithe eyes)

Niji: Oh, okay.... (everyone cheers) But on one condition. (everyone freezes in their cheer pose) Transform first.

May: Got it!

(May touches the ruby in her ring and claps twice, her shirt lengthens and gains silver buttons. Next, she taps the ring on her shoes, making them turn into red high heels. Upon tapping the ring on her legs, she gains a white skirt with rubies dotting it. Finally, she claps over her head twice, and an electric guitar appears in her hands, as well as her hair turning red.)

Akaichou: Haeru wingu, Akaichou yo!

(Brock touches the emerald in his ring and claps twice, making his shirt turn silver. Upon touching the jewel to his legs, he gains a pair of emerald studded pants and golden shoes, also studded with emeralds. Next, Brock claps twice over his head, making the rest of his normal clothes become a sparkling green jacket. Finally, he claps twice again, making his hair turn black and forming a pair of drum sticks in one hand.)

Midorichou: Haeru wingu, Midorichou yo!

(Crystal touches the sapphire in her ring and claps twice, making glaves appear on her hands. When the sapphire is tapped on her feet, her shoes become aqua sandals studded with sapphires. Next, Crystal claps over her head, making her slip into a shirt that starts out royal blue at the top, then turns white at the bottom; followed by a aqua skirt. Finally, she claps twice again, and her hair is magically braided, plus a harmonica appears in her hand.)

Mizuirochou: Haeru wingu, Mizuirochou yo!

(Whitney touches the topaz in her ring and claps twice, making her shirt and shorts turn into a short yellow dress. Touching the ring to her shoes turns them into small boots. Clapping over her head makes Whitney's hair turn yellow and put itself up in a ponytail, as well as making a yellow sash and small topazes appear on her costume. Whitney claps again, and lace appears on her costume.)

Ierochou: Haeru wingu, Ierochou yo!

Ash(holds his hand in the air, then sings in a noticeably older sounding voice): Ai-yai-yai, I'm your little Beautifly! (Ash's hand begins to glow) Green, black, and blue; make the colors in the sky!

(MUSIC-"Beautifly" (instrumental))

(We see a glowing outline of Ash's body against the background of Beautifly wings. As Ash hangs in this position, his torso begins to glow purple, and a silver and purple shirt appears on him. Next, a checkered jacket appears over that in a flash of purple. Next, we look at Ash's legs as sparkling black pants appear on his legs in a flash of blue, and silver shoes appear on his feet. The view next shifts to Ash's head, where we see his eyes finally open. His normally black hair begins to lengthen and turn silver. A white rose appears in the right pocket of the jacket, which the young man holds in one hand as he poses for the audience.)

(Music cut)

(We see various shots of the gang at the various games: Akaichou stopping the reels on a slot machine, Midorichou glancing at a poker hand, Mizuirochou watching a roulette wheel spin, Ierochou collecting her winnings from a game of blackjack, and Kochou calling his hand on a game of Hi/Lo Stud. All of this is quickly revealed in a binocular lens....Kage, Yami, and Meowth are watching from a telescope in a secret underground lair)

Yami: This is perfect, getting the Beautiflies all together in one place! Who's up for burning this place to the ground? (holds a box of matches in the air to prove her point)

Meowth: Let's not do da fire ting again...remember da brushfire we tried to set last week?

(We see a flashback of the brushfire)

Kage: Besides, if we do that again, it'll take our little hideout with it. Let's not forget what happened when those guys before us tried to set a building on fire. (brandishes a reel of movie film. Meowth gasps at the reel.)

Meowth: No, please! Not another Jessie and James lecture!

Kage: It's important to learn why they failed so that we don't repeat their mistakes again. (flicks off the lights and starts the projector, which flashes scenes from "Make Room for Gloom!" on a screen. Yami watches, bemused as Ash rescues Gloom from the burning Gym)

Yami: I see...if we tried to burn down this place, Kochou would likely be rescued again, like Ash rescued that Gloom.

Kage: Exactly.

Yami: Say... (at this point in the film, we see a "Blast off") Why don't we expose them by taking their pet Beautifly?

Kage: It's been done...

Yami: That was with a Pikachu! We're dealing with a completely different Pokemon here!

Meowth: You may have a point dere, Yami...

Yami: Huh?

Meowth: I still tink dat Beautifly may be da source of da band's power...and without it, dey'll be exposed!

Kage: It's a start....but if they come looking for it...

(Back on the Game Corner floor, Midorichou studies yet another poker hand, when he notices Officer Jenny approaching the table. He motions for the others to join him.)

Akaichou: Officer Jenny?

Midorichou: What brings you here?

Officer Jenny: Before anyone panics, you five are not in the wrong here. (the gang breathes a sigh of relief) I came because of a tip that there are still signs of Rocket activity here. (everyone gasps at this)

Misty: Again?

Ierochou: Here?

Officer Jenny: Yes...it was thought that the force had cleared out all the Rockets from this place three years ago, but apparently some have remained to this day, plotting their activities underground. We haven't found any concrete leads yet, but you all need to be on alert for anything like wiretaps or bugs.

Mizuirochou: Wow...this is serious stuff...

Officer Jenny: As of right now, your lives are not endangered, but if you do see anything suspicious, by all means, let us know.

Akaichou: We will, Officer. (she waves goodbye as Officer Jenny walks into the crowd. Kochou speaks as the camera looks around the Game Corner again)

Kochou(voiceover): I couldn't believe it--Rockets were still operating here after three years? Judging from what Officer Jenny had said, the police were taking it seriously. With that thought in mind, I began to look around for anything suspicious. (the scene dissolves to Kochou and the others exploring, tapping on the walls and floors, looking behind the machines, and other things)

Kochou: Anything, guys?

Akaichou: Nope. (taps a wall)

Midorichou(under a table): Uh-uh.

Mizuruchou(behind a slot machine): Nobody here but us wires.

Ierochou(looking behind a posting on a bulliten board): Nothing over here....

(In another part of the Corner, we see a lime haired boy with a Roselia at one of the poker tables. Kochou speaks as we watch him play a hand.)

Kochou(voiceover): While we continued our search for clues, we didn't know that we weren't the only star power in the house. (Drew reveals his hand: two pair. The other players applaud as Drew accepts his winnings.) The great movie star Drew Eigaka was also here by sheer coincidence...and he seemed to be interested in our music.

Drew(thinking): Could it be? The singer everyone calls Kochou? (he motions to his guards) Let me speak with Kochou. (the guards nod, and follow Drew as he approaches the gang, who appear to have given up on their search.) Greetings, Beautiflies.

Kochou: If it isn't the great Drew Eigaka...what can we do for you?

Drew: I've heard about your currently rising fame, and two of your most popular songs...I'm here in town because I'm looking for a musical act to star with me in my latest movie, Galaxy Dreamer.(everyone gasps.)

Akaichou: Really? We've never acted before.

Midorichou: Care to spoil us with details, Mr. Eigaka?

Drew: Not yet...I'll tell you if you're lucky enough to be a part of it. (While Drew is talking, Niji spots a huge hole behind a poster and flies inside) If you'd like to try, I can spare a little while to hear you play.

Ierochou: With pleasure. (everyone runs to get ready)

(Before long, everyone is in position on a stage. Drew, his guards, and the Roselia watch intently.)

Midorichou: Which song should we do?

Kochou: Let's do our new one, okay guys?

(lights begin flashing to the beat as a techno beat begins)

Kochou: You've got to move it, feel the temperature!
Into the rhythm, let the fire burn!
So get into it, get into the trance!
This is the rhythm, of the tribal dance!
The tribal da-a-a-a-a-a-a-ance!
(everyone begins to dance to the song)

(Meanwhile, Niji flies along a dark passageway.)

Niji: Odd...what would this passageway be doing here...(she bonks her head on a rafter) OW! (shakes her head) You'd think they'd have warning signs in here or something...

(Suddenly the lights flash on, surprising Niji as she is caught in a net! She breaks free and also manages to escape Kage's hands, prompting him and Yami to run after her.)

(Back in the Game Corner, the band is still playing and a large crowd is dancing as Drew and his staff listen intently)

Kochou: You've got to move it, feel the temperature!
Into the rhythm, let the fire burn!
So get into it, get into the trance!
This is the rhythm, of the tribal dance!
The tribal da-a-a-a-a-a-a-ance!


(as the music ends, Mizuirochou hears scuffling through the wall)

Mizuirochou: What's that?

(more scuffling is heard, followed by a cry for help. (Kochou freezes when he hears the voice)

Kochou: NIJI!!! (he darts off towards the wall as the scene fades out with the words "To Be Continued..." plastered over Kochou running.)

(The word "Next" appears onscreen as an instrumental of "When Tomorrow Comes" begins)

Ierochou(voiceover): Next time, on "Kochou and the Beautiflies..."

(We see Kochou and the Rockets singing)

Ierochou(voiceover): We make our way through a secret passage to save Niji, but it's not without a lot of traps! (we see the gang getting caught in various traps) As if saving Niji isn't enough, (we see Kochou catching Niji in his arms) we also have to deal with the Rocket Trio as we vie for a spot in Drew Eigaka's next movie! (we see a shot of Drew again) But right now I'm worried about Niji...will she be okay? Stay tuned and see!
