Amazing! It took me 2-3 weeks to read it all and I got sucked in your story since the beginning ! I haven’t been on for so long and I just saw an author on archive of our own mention your story in a comment somewhere and I so not regret it!
It has been a roller coaster of a journey ! The characters are awesome, Ash is soooo… arrrggg just want to hug him! Love Brock and his support no matter what and Misty is so fierce she is such a badass ! All the different parts of your story are great, the recovery and beginning of friendship then the journey and then the world ending… just wow!
I have so many favourite scenes : the heartbreak when Ash realised that his dreams were ‘just dreams’, the heartbreak finding his old house with strangers, finding his Mom (I was so crying !), finding out about having a brother, that Prof Oak was dead at the time… all of this together felt like the world wanted to crush him - your writing there was phenomenal ! Then I loved his reunion his pikachu, finding out that his dreams may be more than just that, finding Charizard and crying with him (I cried too!), finding about Squirtle whereabouts… damn the first part made me cry so so much! Another heartbreaking scene was Ash realising that some of his Pokemon passed away, or that some he will probably never find due to them moving - and scratching their name off his list
I loved his reunion with Gary - finally some hope and a friendly face :) actually everything with Gary was handled amazingly ! Loved every time they see each other and every time they hug ! Loved the special Gary chapter as well ! His back ground with Leaf was sweet and the way he grieved grand father was beautifully written
Loved Ash’s reunion with Brock and Togepi Vs Geodude! Damn that was so cool to see baby Togepi stands up for himself despite having no chance of winning ! Brock saying later on to Misty that he met Ash and then believed that Ash had it in him to change the world was… one of my favourite Brock moment :D
I loved how each character had a role to play and how each of them changed for the better after meeting Ash :) Dawn and Drew admiring Ash’s bolt move back in Sinnoh, the fact that Brock and Misty became friends and started to change things even without Ash around, loved May taking the lead in Hoenn, Jessie and James fighting tooth and nails despite all their failures
The Unova facility break in and out was such an incredible even - totally loved the kiss shared there xd x their relationship moving the way it was was perfect for me! Misty couldn’t fall for Ash while he was still vulnerable and in a kinda 10 years old mindset. It was obvious he had an innocent crush on her from pretty much the beginning - even if he didn’t realise and Misty didn’t take it seriously (again 10 years old crush). Ash needed time to adjust to his new life, new body and new world first and I love that Misty gave him that time, letting him go onto his journey :) I also love the fact that she was very worried of taking advantage of him due to his situation - shows how much of a selfless person she is
I can’t wait to see the sequel ! A lot are still unsaid - Leaf, Délia and Cole for starter : hope they are still alive ! I already have an image in my mind about Ash and Gary going on a rescue mission for them and Gary hugging Cole fiercely, crying relief tears, with Ash hugging both Gary and Cole T_T it killed me when Gary told Ash not to die cause he was the only family he had left! So I don’t believe that Gary will stay behind in the sequel - more likely by Ash’s side
I still have hope that Charizard and Squirtle will both be back ! We still don’t know what happened to Squirtle and if Team Rocket wasn’t alone in this - which we are sure of! - then I guess Lysandre and Team Flare are the ones who have Delia, Cole, Leaf and Squirtle. The thing is there was no reason to take Squirtle at the time (I don’t believe he was any proof of the battle of people didn’t know what to look for) so I think he can still be alive. So is Charizard - for our favourite dragon, Iris’ comment is what clue me in I guess : the fire around him is his to protect himself from anything and anyone who would come close to him. These same fire extinguish the moment Ash was around because it was Ash! And as soon as he left Charizard’s fire was back up. Because Mega evolution is such a myth in this world, nothing guarantees the exactness of the information about how it really works. If a Pokemon can evolve so fast from one stage to another naturally, the fact that mega evolution is made slowly is probably so that the Pokemon can adapt to it naturally too. So I really hope that dying is not the last stage of mega evolution :) (I was so happy to guess he was Mega evolving from pretty much the start - mentioned of black scales, I was worried he was getting sick, but with black scales and powerful flame tail? Mega evolution! Especially blue flammes being cited later on!)
Hope that Greninja is next for mega evolution if it is not fatal :D I’m quite surprise he wasn’t around for the final battle against Mewtwo, fighting long distance with shuriken on Charizard back :/ since he had a rivalry with Alan’s Charizard in the dreams, it would have been great to see him team up with Ash’s mega evolved Charizard. Maybe we will see the team up in the sequel ?
We still don’t know what happened to the other professors and the fact that Butch and Cassidy tried to kidnap Gary to take him to their boss who WAS NOT Giovanni… they even called Gary ‘a target’ and I’m pretty such at some point ‘red hair’ were mentioned so… Lysandre! Kalos has been way too peaceful
Again congratulations for finishing such an amazing story! Can’t wait to see the sequel ! Hope to have some quiet scenes for our heroes ! They deserve it! Hope to see it soon!
Ps: the twist with Agatha… wow! So did not expect it! Especially ending her speech with ‘I was never on your side’ chill! To think that the only reason why Team Rocket couldn’t track Ash during his journey was because he forgot the master ball home… that revelation shocked me - just thinking about it… so scary!

Simplemente me encanto, la trama me hace recuerdo a los juegos del hambre pero con mayor complejidad, me agrada el hecho de que hagas cómplice a los lectores en tu historia, es decir sabemos que estamos hablando de un elegido después de todo, pero el aire que das a la historia me hacía sentir que estaba viendo todo esto a través de una ventana o algún oráculo, cómo se describían en la antigua grecia.
Bueno ya para finalizar, te pido que pienses en realizar una secuela, me encantaría volver a leer una de tus obras.

I've finally finished reading this. I've been following this fic for years, but when you published the last two chapters and I read that it was the end, I couldn't bring myself to read them. I just did not want this fic to end cause I like it that much, you know? I just re-read it time and time again. But I finally reached the ending, and I'm grateful for your work.
This is one of the best fics I've read, If not the best, considering both the length and complexity of the plot. It's actually one of the few fics I've recommended to people who are not into fanfiction. You wrote enough to make a few books, that's an amazing feat!
Thank you so much for sharing this with us. If you ever decided to share more, I'll read it happily :)
¡Muchas gracias! 3

This fanfiction torned my heart to shreds
| NoseGum chapter 31 . 9/11/2021
Gary's a class act in this story. I always laugh when reading about him being tired of Ash being...himself. Leaf by extension, too.
| NoseGum chapter 26 . 9/11/2021
Genuinely made me laugh, from the cut to Ash having burned down the pound to the bits with Gary. Great chapter.

Me gusto tu historia pero quiero saber sobre su secuela esperare a leerlo.
| AshFanboy97 chapter 70 . 7/25/2021
I loved this whole story so much, I love your writing style in general, and love what you do with these characters especially. Please tell me you're still around, I'd love to read any further stories you do or even just talk about these ones in general. Thank you for sharing your work regardless!
| Ikaz chapter 70 . 7/2/2021
enjoyed the story, looking forward to the sequel. you could save yourself some writing time and try to avoid being to wordy. lots of paragraphs that makes it's point in the first sentence. other than that pretty great.
| Ikaz chapter 36 . 6/26/2021
I love this story but this conspiracy stuff has gotten out of hand. it was one thing for ash to. it k ow about Unova but apearntly the whole world can just not notice a region being locked down? also how many people are keeping a secret? the moment 100 people have to keep a secret it's no longer a secret.

But, if Delia thought Ash dead years ago, why would she visit him all this time, and even more, why so she watch TV in his room, to give him the other characters?
