Antoshi

I'm never going to stop fighting. Especially if it means stopping you from harming us and putting and end to your insane idea of a 'perfect world.'
~ Antoshi to Latoshi, Sibling Rivalry

Summary

Antoshi is the main protagonist of a fanfiction series that takes place in a future timeline within the Pokémon series. He is a kind, outgoing 13-year-old Pokémon Trainer. Together with his best friend and only on-hand Pokémon — a Typhlosion named Fireball — he traveled the region of Kanto and collected all eight Gym Badges. Along the way, however, he begins to unlock various superhuman abilities. His latent power is realized in a moment of desperation after the kidnapping of his best friend.

Appearances

A Blond Ray of Sunshine

Antoshi's first appearance portrays him as a kind, bright and outgoing 12-year-old boy on a journey as a Pokémon Trainer through the region of Kanto, almost one hundred years after the events of Pokémon Red and Blue. With his best friend and only Pokémon, Fireball the Typhlosion, he seeks to collect all eight Gym Badges and reach the Indigo Plateau.

He is a quick learner; a level-headed strategist, well-read in various subjects concerning Pokémon and world history. His knowledge and over a year of experience as a Trainer make him confident when it comes to Pokémon battles. He does not want for attention, is shy around girls, and typically dresses in modest clothing sent to him by his mother. While friendly, has very few friends aside from Fireball.

After taking a boat from Fuchsia City to Cinnabar Island, Antoshi and Fireball obtain their seventh badge at the Cinnabar Gym. Before they can obtain their eighth and final badge, Fireball is lured away and kidnapped by Team Rocket members Matt and Jalyn. The resulting emotional distress of having his best friend stolen from him causes Antoshi's latent abilities to unlock. His powers allow him to single-handedly capture the two Team Rocket members and rescue his friend. They then move on to the Viridian Gym and obtain their final badge.[1]

Along the way, however, Antoshi experiences strange nightmares in which he witnesses a faraway event. The event turns out to happen in real life, resulting in the destruction of a small town in the Johto region.

Sibling Rivalry

After competing in the Indigo League's semiannual tournament, Antoshi and Fireball are defeated in the first round of the bracket. They return home to Saffron City and take several months off. After Antoshi's thirteenth birthday, the duo decide to embark on a new badge-collecting journey in Johto. They travel to Goldenrod City, led partially by Antoshi's curiosity of his perceived link to a recently destroyed Johto town. There, Antoshi develops a sixth sense that draws him into a chance meeting with his apparent twin, Latoshi.

The two boys are shocked to find that they appear almost physically identical, save for the colors of their hair. They get along for a brief time before Antoshi, with great suspicion on his mind, presses Latoshi with questions regarding the destruction of the Johto town. Latoshi lures Antoshi into the Ilex Forest, where he reveals his plans for his ideal utopian world — by murdering anyone Latoshi deems evil. He invites Antoshi to join him. Antoshi is shocked by Latoshi's willingness to murder people and vehemently declines. A clash between the two young men with superpowers ensues.

Latoshi, who wields more control over his powers, emerges victorious with almost no effort exerted on his part. He leaves Antoshi bloodied, brutally beaten and nearly unconscious. Fireball is also left unconscious and badly injured. Lazarus insists that Latoshi kill Antoshi. Before he can finish Antoshi off, however, he has a last-second change of heart. With a vague threat, Latoshi leaves Antoshi unconscious in the woods.

Antoshi briefly awakens to a vision of a young woman who also appears to be able to use the same kind of Ki energy he and Latoshi wield. After fully awakening some time later, Antoshi leads Fireball out of the woods. Thoroughly infuriated over Latoshi's threats to harm his friends and family, he becomes embroiled with the thought of revenge against his apparent twin.
