Before Sunday is 5 hours until midnight, and before then end of the party is when the fireworks of new year come.
------- 2 days to new year...
Christmas has passed for Ash, May, Max and Brock. They travel, with Ash still aiming for the Hoenn League. They look forward to the new year...
"So what's for lunch Brock?" asked Ash.
"Well, because it's still Winter I decided some chicken and beef stew would do well." replied Brock.
"Mmm... that's tasty." said Ash later.
They continue their trek.

~~Meanwhile in some nearby bushes~~
Meowth is spying on Ash and friends eating while Jessie and James eat some ramen noodles.
Meowth: "They're eating. This gives us the perfect chance to steal their Pokemon."
James: "But we're eating too Meowth."
Meowth: "Hey! Where's my food?"
Wobbufett pops out of nowhere, holding an empty bowl.
Meowth: "You ate my ramen!"
Meowth scratches Wobbufett, but scratches appear on his face due to Counter.
~~Meanwhile in some other bushes~~
Shadow is spying on Ash and friends also.
Shadow: "These twerps have ruined all my plans this last year. If I don't steal any Pokemon I won't get my New Years Bonus! And if I don't get my New Years Bonus, I can't go on my vacation to Alaska!"
Nidoking: "Why don't you just steal someone else's Pokemon?"
Shadow: "I have two days. If I can't get my revenge, which I will, then I'll just steal some easy Pokemon off some other trainers tomorrow morning."
~~In a fake tree nearby~~
Cassidy is spying on Ash and friends.
Butch: "What's the word?"
Cassidy: "They're eating. This is the perfect chance to surprise them."
Butch: "Those twerps have made us been in jail so much, we haven't been able to steal any Pokemon."
Cassidy: "So we will steal there's and reap in our lovely New Years bonus!"
Butch, Cassidy, Jessie, James, Meowth, and Shadow: "Mwahahahahaha!!!" ~~JJ+M's bush~~
Jessie: "We get New Years Bonuses?"
Meowth: "Must have been something they started after we became failures..."
