Even worse capitalization sins than usual, the continuing adventures of isekai, Arceus, and some actually good stuff.

A batch that’s heavy on the unfortunate implications and questionable decisions. (more…)
Sexism, both quite subtle and unusually overt, and a variety of rulebreaking. Stories that say they’re about Ash but aren’t. Stories that say they’re about pokemon but aren’t! And pacing issues upon pacing issues. (more…)
A lot of stuff centered around Ash and the early season, with even the one that’s about Ash starting in Kalos and the inevitable betrayal-Ash fic both involved emphasis on how many seasons of adventures he’s already had. Possibly the modern accessibility of shows means that the newest fans coming in are now watching from the start again.
Also, yet another quirky character specializing in something else entirely and who clearly had no interest in pokemon battling somehow changing their mind and becoming a great trainer.
We continue to not have any standard OT fic! However, there is someone being roughly as incompetent, overpowered and poorly plotted but as a baker for some reason.
Quite a strange collection this time, including platonic? tickling where Ash considers Kukui his father, a story that was 90% worldbuilding setup by someone who didn’t actually seem to have any interest in the world, a scientist who didn’t know how to science, and a character from our world who tells Oak exactly that.
More “why are you saying this is the same character” issues, as usual, and a genre-aware isekai that’s probably is just a usual one but could possibly be a very stealth meta deconstruction of typical isekai instead. Plus an earnest attempt at a science-of-pokemon thing that’s very rough.
Lot of pacing issues with a dash of why are you saying this is a canon character when you’ve removed the thing about the character that’d make them interesting in the AU. (more…)
The starting batch has a surprising bunch of unusually detailed, narration-heavy non-new trainer stories with unusually terrible grammar. Also, bonus other review.
Actually had an obligatory review, then did the Supernatural as well as Horror subsections because both were pretty quick. (more…)
When last we left off Dresdening, Harry’s previous fridged girlfriend, Elaine, turned up apparently alive! And now this, like her and some dude, returns from the dead. (more…)
Some interesting stuff and not just from people I already know! Also, the fanfic contest and scoring continues.
A lot of stuff that really glances in the direction of saying pokemon are friends who matter, then utterly fails to bring that across. Also where we learn that physical beauty means not looking like a thief, even if you’re in thieving clothes.
Isekai. An Alola run of the games with an adult character where that doesn’t change anything and people still say the same lines.
A typical trainerfic with a typical shiny, a sort of out of focus fic revolving around comforting a character, a superhero sort of story set in the regular world with a pokemon falling in, a story featuring Kyurem that’s doing its absolute best to not be about Kyurem, and what appears to be setup for a sue to get Mewtwo.
