Another nice pokemon story from NebulaDreams, a painfully cliché crime drama where everyone is incompetent, and a lot of nothing.
Tag: Pokemon fanfic
Experienced some writer’s block, so I figured it was time for some reviewing. There were a few decent fics, but nothing terribly notable aside from a pokemon rebellion fic that was actually just an edgelord post-apocalyptic story about wizards in pokemon costumes.
A lot of decent but not terribly remarkable stuff. Also, another fic of humans in pokemon costumes.
Some decent stuff today, including a pretty interesting anime AU where Ash is raised by Mewtwo. Most of the trainer fic also at least has nonstandard openings. There is, however, a lot of weirdness around pokemon treatment, including a heartwarming story about a guy using his brother’s ghost for dogfighting.
A cute Yueltide fic with delibird, and a really awesome opening about a shiny hunter tracking legendaries WHO GET “IT” PRONOUNS I’M SO HAPPY. Mostly just standard openings otherwise, including another entry into the reincarnation-through-Arceus subgenre.
The Curious and the Shiny got a reboot! I unfortunately fell behind on the original, but the new version is looking great. There are a few good openings, otherwise.
An interesting story playing on the replacement of Kris with Lyra. Some okayish openings otherwise.
Anime: 11, plus one manga fic.
One of those worldbuilding primers with “realistic” pokemon that I used as a jumping-off point to explore various possibilities. It was fun! Not much of note otherwise, though.
Some interesting speculation into Ghetsis’ backstory and motivations, and a game novelization that actually looks decent. Lots of tiny first chapters that go nowhere, otherwise.
One milquetoast N fic and a lot of generic trainer journeys.

Some novelizations of varying quality.

“I think that I should challenge the Elite Four,” she had told them, “After all it was what I set out to do, and it is why I continue to push forward,” Valerie stared at the intelligent faces surrounding her, “However, there’s always a chance that you won’t make it,” Her eyes began to sting, memories of the most recent death threatening to push free of her eyes. She fought them back and continued, “I won’t force any of you to fight in those conditions,” Here she took a deep breath she had thought about this for awhile now, “If you would like to back out now, I offer you the opportunity to leave. You can stay in the PC, or even return to your wild homes. I won’t make you fight, and I won’t hate you for leaving,” Valerie’s vision began to blur, and she was staring at her legs, travel worn and strong. She felt a touch from one of her pokemon, and looked up, without fail each pokemon looked her in the eye, and stepped forward, ready to help her achieve her goals.
Nuzlocke authors continue to not understand you can’t transplant epic fantasy stakes into a sports anime.

An interesting fic from a voltorb’s perspective, and a story with a paralyzed protagonist that completely glosses over all the challenges this would imply.

A neat oneshot about the Lake fairies, a decent SuMo novelization, and a lot of incoherence.
