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

NaRe2022 Day 8 (20)
A batch that’s heavy on the unfortunate implications and questionable decisions. (more…)
NaRe2022 Day 7 (31)
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…)
NaRe2022 Day 6 (18+1)
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.
NaRe2022 Day 5 (12)
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.
NaRe 2022 Day 4 (12 +1)
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.
NaRe 2022 Day 3 (13 +1)
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.
NaRe 2022 Day 2 (11+1)
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…)
NaRe 2022, Day 1 (8 + 1)
The starting batch has a surprising bunch of unusually detailed, narration-heavy non-new trainer stories with unusually terrible grammar. Also, bonus other review.
 The Other Pokereviews, Part 158
Some actually decent stuff today, including a story with some nice Johto character study and worldbuilding.
 The Other Pokereviews, Part 157
A story about how paraplegics can’t be trainers or, apparently, doctors, and a story by a gun fetishist.
 The Other Pokereviews, Part 156
I’m back! Nothing interesting so far, unfortunately.
NaRe 2020 Day 23
And so we finish! More of the people and pokemon and humans in a number of different ways.
NaRe 2020 Day 22
More wonky grammar than usual. Someone being nice to a magikarp, though!
NaRe 2020 Day 21
A story about Natural Harmony, a tropius.
