“[Hilda] was […] always kind to strangers and making sure her Pokemon wanted to travel with her and battle on her behalf.” An N shipping fic that actually brings up the pokemon treatment issue, but obviously doesn’t go far enough. We also got another one of those totally realistic technobabble fics, and a hilariously over-the-top sue.

One decent fic about Guzma and a really disjointed N/Hilda fic that does nothing to sell the relationship. Otherwise boring.
A fic where the trainer can talk to his partner pokemon, who calls him “Master”. But it’s totally not slavery! Other than that, very boring.
Today we’ve got a fic about N that just ends up being generic grimdark, a grimdark fic where humans are enslaved by very human-like pokemon, and a terrible pokephilia thing with a hardboiled noir teenager.
Also, by popular demand, I have now created a copypasta on why OT fics are bad and the author should feel bad. You’re welcome!
I took some time off so these posts could catch up with present day, but I still reviewed SYOC stories as they came up, and some standard cliche stories I couldn’t resist.
A SYOC story that is keeping its cards extremely close to its chest, thus making the plot incomprehensible; a story that’s just summarizing the events of Red and Blue with an emphasis on how great it is that pokemon are slavishly devoted; and something that wants to be A Song of Ice and Fire. And more!
Quite a lot today! There’s an absurdly over-the-top pokemon oppression fic (always good to see a baby Farla), not one but two grimdark OT fics, one of which is half whining about how rattata are useless, and a postgame Gladion story that’s actually pretty good.
A decent fic about a character from the ancient Pokemon musical, and a fic where the legendaries are wooden bureaucrats. Otherwise, same old same old.
About the most interesting thing today is someone mixing up “monotonous” and “monogamous”. Also, a grimdark fic where Sun joined Team Rocket and also Lillie just left Lusamine to her own devices after she recovered, because nothing could possibly go wrong there.
Found a decent one about Mewtwo!
An OT fic that sneers about how much better it is than the drek before immediately making all the same mistakes as the drek. Also a “realistic” darkfic about a new region that segregates itself by type.
“I had to get this kill, or else I would go hungry tonight in the Village. The Elk I was about to murder sat grazing in the meadow.”
Some moemon fic that seems like it may not be absolutely horrible, and a YA dystopia novel that somehow got mixed up with Pokemon. Otherwise, pretty boring.
Featuring one of those “realistic” fics that spends ages explaining how the Australian military chose to genetically engineer an umbreon as an infiltrator because big cats are stealthy.
Also, “In the city of Rustboro, society is changing alarmingly. Humans and Pokémon walk in the same streets and drink at the same bars. Poké Ball sales are at an all-time low. Some Pokémon are even joining the city’s politicians. Matters are not helped, however, by the rise of a new terrorist Team, hell-bent on fully integrating Pokémon into human society…”
A few attempts at pokemon-trainer romance that fail to grasp the inherent issues.
