Arceus: Unlike Dialga, I need more focus to send someone cleanly through time like you experienced before. You will be able to restore memories, but not as perfectly and evenly as I'd had hoped to grant you, and not as flexibly, and the distortions to the original timeline may have unpredictable consequences, but it's the best chance we all have...

Pokémon Reset Bloodlines by Crossoverpairinglover begins with Cyrus (who's gained control of the strands of reality) dismantling the universe to create his world without spirit. However, Arceus is able to save Ash Ketchum, and sends him back to the day he started his journey so he can prevent this from happening.

Sound familiar? The author isn't shy about admitting the fic was inspired by Ashes, but there are some major differences between the two. One of the most significant is that Arceus was unable to recreate the world exactly as it was, so there are numerous unintended changes. Ash is now 15 years old, actually kept in contact with Serena, and is one of only two people from Pallet Town to earn a Pokémon license. Perhaps most important of all, he's now a bloodliner, which is essentially a human with Pokémon-related abilities. Also unlike in Ashes of the Past, his ability to restore memories is imperfect (especially when it comes to humans), and he can't restore physical capabilities at all, meaning he has to retread old ground while figuring out the laws of this new timeline. There are also major differences in tone: Pokémon Reset Bloodlines is a darker and more serious story, though not without moments of levity. These differences in tone and plot help to give the story its own unique identity, rather than simply being a retread of Ashes.

Like many stories, it has a romantic subplot, but this one is relatively unusual. Word of God has confirmed that this is a harem fic, and as such, the plotline is going to develop differently. Ash will have six girlfriends: Misty, May, Dawn, Iris, Serena, and as revealed in Chapter 23, Anabel. However, this will only happen after a lot of time and soul-searching for everybody involved.

The fic also has several sidestories tied to it that either shows the origins of a character, or several, or portraying events that occur during the story, mostly with characters who aren't Ash and Co. The author has also opened the door for others to write in the same universe, an opportunity many other writers took. There is also a spin-off written by Viroro-kun named The Wild Boy from Sinnoh set to be a multi-chapter story also in the same continuity as the main story, partially based on Pokémon: Diamond and Pearl Adventure!.
