One decentish fic about Dawn rescuing Cyrus from the Distortion World, and yet another fic where the legendaries are a divine bureaucracy.

A lot of weird nonsense, but not much of interest. There is one B/W novelization that claims the main character will get the ability to understand pokemon, but the first chapter ends before that happens.
Today we have a SYOC fic with a ridiculously detailed form but no story content, a short fic about Hau with a conspicuous absence of Lillie, and Pokemon Revolution.
Today we have a Guzma origin story that makes him the privileged Z-user; a gay love story that spends a page tooting its horn about how it’s God’s gift to the queer community; and a well-written Nuzlocke fic that somehow manages to make everyone look even more horrible than normal. Also, someone writes a gigantic rant about me in their author’s note instead of just blocking me.
A lot of people messing up their verb tenses today. But we’ve got a few decent concepts, including a fic about Leaf that isn’t terrible.
A kid who can talk to pokemon feels such a kinship with them he feels more human than pokemon but still decides to beat them up for personal glory, because people are terrible.
A postgame fic about Lillie and Lusamine, an extra unhealthy N romance fic, and a fic that makes Leaf a nauseatingly stereotypical shrinking violet and then calls everyone sexist for ignoring her. Also, a whole lot of trainers screwing their pokemon.
Found a semi-decent “pokemon become real” fic. Sadly, it was by a gun nut, so it spends all its time on irrelevant minutiae.
Today we have a Nuzlocke fic that is not completely horrible! I am cautiously optimistic.
Today we have a male self-insert/gardevoir romance that manages to make the gardevoir the rapey one! Truly, it can always get worse.
“[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.
