Read it again and... Uh, I'm taking the Maudlin Town comment back. The fic did go there. During the dream sequences and the self-slaps and, well, pretty much everything else. Snark and science were there, but I kind of missed the fact that they weren't exactly at the story's core. Another thing: the "quibbles" I talked about previously have turned into "complaints." Reading a second time made them jump up and down a little too much for some reason.
This fic has upsides, of course. It's a lot better than some works of a similar theme out there, but at the end of the day, I gave it more credit than it deserved.
Sorry, you. I just felt the need to be honest and objective about everything. Hope this won't discourage you too much.

Now this was just lovely. The snark, the sexuality, the science-you've managed to make the Pokemon world multiple loads more real that I'm *this* close to being afraid I'll see Ash and crew in the streets flaunting pokeballs and defying the laws of physics.
I'm a new crew member of the eldership, if I may call it that. I've always leaned towards age difference relationships, and you, my friend, have handled this particular one well. Old-young couples've always been a touchy subject; it obviously isn't everyone's cup of tea, but it's ours, and everyone else will just have to deal.
Great job avoiding Maudlin Town. Pacing was great. The scenes weren't excruciatingly desperate attempts to inject unwarranted volumes of intimacy. Sam and Dee did kind of turn into saps at the end, but hey, not every day one gets into situations of the type you put them in.
Some quibbles: One, I found the dream sequences a little excessive. Two, what's up with the "flashback," "dream sequence," and "eldershipping" alert signs? Besides being unnecessary, they're these mini-spoilers that, at least to me, don't in any way enrich the reading experience. 'Cause when I see the !ELDERSHIPPING! thing, for instance, I focus too much on the impending punchline and unwittingly blot out some details. I'd very much rather be taken by surprise. It's very fulfilling to a reader when they successfully plot connections on their own, when they separate the flashbacks from current occurrences, when they understand even without the spoonfeeding.
Added props for the condom crack and Perverted Mimey.
Hope you continue writing. Wouldn't want that gift of yours to go to waste. :)

Now I can visualize ash's mom singing 'Sam' (Olivia Newton-John) all the time.
Oak IS Ash's dad.
You know he is.

Not just this Chapter, but this whole story is awesome! You should cut out the swear words and put in things like shucks, darn it, etc. Cut out the part about what brock gave them also. (ew) That way it will seem more realistic, like the japanese animators wrote it, then submit it somewhere.
