Lot of Ash, an honest to god shiny eevee found in a dumpster fic, and we also end with a burst of people-and-pokemoning. But there’s also some good stuff. Also, a bonus obligative review sneaks in under the wire.

So many trainers of so little competence. Also, another example of trying to show how good the main character is by giving them a traumatized pokemon, who will of course have no issue belonging to a new trainer going on a badge quest full of battles.
Some varied flavors of self-inserts, one of those ones that’s at once ultragrimdark and yet ridiculously ungrimdark because the characters will somehow manage anyway, and yet another “AU” where a different character is hammered so firmly into the original’s mold they’re repeating the same dialogue.
I did Zoroark Games months ago and finally got around to reviewing them. (more…)
A weird (inadvertantly?) pro-British-Empire-Monarchy fic, a lot of people writing like they’re directing an episode, so much unnecessary and shoddily included religion, yet another fic where a guy is fucking a gardevoir and neither seem concerned she has zero legal rights but this time they’re also apparently fine with that applying to their kid too, a bunch of terrible science, and something with the Dragon Clan that could’ve been interesting but just squanders everything.
As an overall theme, people not really getting the concept of a hook, whether the issue is about failing to deliver on what’s brought up in their summary, failing to deliver on what’s brought up in their first chapter, or failing to even have anything to fail to deliver on.
Also, a smattering of uncomfortable sexual issues of the authors.
A rather interesting one, and another one that completely ignores the potential drama of people choosing to believe something unlikely because the other option would crush them with guilt. (more…)
Yesterday, I forgot to include M fic. Today, I make up for that. Also, ongoing research failures and possibly people translating their fic from languages that don’t have gendered pronouns.
One-sixth of all fic today has one-third of the population transform into pokemon.
Actually had an obligatory review, then did the Supernatural as well as Horror subsections because both were pretty quick. (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.
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.
A PMD fic that actually seems to be doing something unusual, and not just by starting the human-enters-game plot at a different point. Incompetent trainers. Questionable worldbuilding. One of those stories where the evil organization is kidnapping people to make them beautiful furries with superpowers, oh no, such a cruel fate.
Bunch of trainerfic. One of those where trainers are starting late and there’s almost none of them because what better reaction to criminals having pokemon than to ensure everyone else remains easy pickings, one of those where worried parents are sure the best way to protect their kid is to make sure they definitely don’t let the kid get a pokemon early and train it up first, a lot of not actually caring at all about the pokemon themselves and not actually going anywhere much with the the first chapter. Also one where it’s someone dropped into the forest and killing a pokemon to get another pokemon on their side and one where the isekai’d person gets dropped into Lillie.
