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.
We are finished with 2016 at last. Hallelujah!
The end of the year contains a semi-interesting fic that tries to “deconstruct” mega evolution by adding in random grimdark while doing nothing to question or criticize the ridiculous things claimed in canon. Also, a story about how Arceus has to save Alola because why use pantheons actually relevant to the plot when you can make everything about how Arceus is literally the Abrahamic God.
In which I get to review the same story twice, because the author still hasn’t figured out how to block me.
Also contains a high school AU with a protagonist named “Moon Selene”, because her parents just hated her that much.
“Today I get to pick my lifelong partner, companion, and friend: I get to pick my first Pokemon. Of course, I’m picking Tepig. Who wouldn’t? Strong, dependable, great evolution. You can’t lose!
Of course, someone else will want Tepig, which is why I’m rushing to the lab right now. I will be the first there and I will get my Tepig!”
But trainers totally don’t treat pokemon as disposable objects, shut up you joy-hating hippie scum!!!
Mostly just miscategorized anime fic today.
Meh fic today. There was a semi-interesting one, but the author took it down.
Lot of standalone author’s notes today.
Nicely varied crop today. There’s a grimdark war story that’s currently nothing but a hilariously overdetailed summary, as well as some idiot who thought crowdsourcing whether or not pokemon could talk was a wise idea. Also a good-ish story about the Alola PC freaking out at the nihilego’s similarity to Lillie, though it seems to have mixed up cause and effect. Also also a Team Plasma story, but no idea where that’s going.
