LOL that was a nonpokemon lizard wasn't it. No gen 1/2/3 pokemon has a tail that big, and is only about a few inches long.
I have no idea on half the other mysteries (or if you'll read this, seeing you've been gone for about a decade) but I think the pokemon situation amounts to bred/released/ferals in controlled environments such as the venusaur/forest god made forests. The nurse joys and jennys are manufactured, sorta. Maybe grown in a vat like clones? The place Elliot was walking in was very clearly a natural, unmaintained place (rough paths, plants with spikes). [Some trees were even broken] haha! [fan made of dyed green pidgeotto feathers] ferns, [green carpet-like thing growing on an old fallen tree trunk] moss.
I also love all the pokemon. Caw is my favorite and I wish we got more scenes of him on his own, Discord has all the trappings of a whismur except the pokedex didn't scan him as Hoenn for some reason (hmm, come to think of it, would the forest god have taken him too?), Howler has been bred to be either really stupid or develop really slowly, Sono is Sono and is wonderful, Din is a puppy and should also have more scenes, Prowler... well, just like Caw, I could write a whole 'nother review poking at her.
I want to write a full review of this, if nothing else to help other anachronistic mystery hunters along. I read this story years ago and that one review that puzzled out the title was really fun to read.

Well, that was a little messed up.
| Crown of Gold chapter 12 . 9/20/2011
Ah, so Elliot is starting to understand his Pokemon a little? That's great.

The city is walled? Literally?
| Crown of Gold chapter 10 . 9/17/2011
This chapter was pretty mind screwy...
| Crown of Gold chapter 9 . 9/17/2011
What a fucked up Pokemon world. Maybe even worse than the one depicted in Pedestal.
| Crown of Gold chapter 8 . 9/17/2011
You should use page breakers or something to signify the change in a scene... Anyway... I wonde what it is about the Joys...?
| Crown of Gold chapter 7 . 9/17/2011
Pretty sketchy stuff going on with that Joy and just the Pokemon Center in general.

This story is good and all, but I would like to see more of Elliot interacting with his Pokemon. Perhaps in the upcoming chapters he will. As for Michael, I hope he doesn't lose against that Lass.

Oh, he traded away the meowth... I kind of liked that thing. I bet they're giving away either starters from Hoenn or Poochyena, Spinda... and... erm... Trapinch.

Elliot winning that gym badge was definitely a fluke. His naming skills are absolutely horrific. I feel bad for whatever other Pokemon he gets. (200th review by way!)
| Crown of Gold chapter 3 . 9/16/2011
It's a tad bit sickening how uneducated this kid Elliot is about Pokemon. He doesn't even bother to train it before he takes on the gym. Poor Pokemon...
| Crown of Gold chapter 2 . 9/16/2011
Well, his starter Pokemon was kind of expected from the title. I really like the way this written. I don't really know what it is about it, but it's nice.

This is a pretty good start to a fic. Hope the rest of it turns out to be just as great.

Beautiful. Extrordinarily well-written. This single fanfiction had brought so many questions and is one of the best I've ever read. The characterization was wonderful, the story-line was intriguing and words can't express how brilliant this is.
I can only say I'm horrified at the fact that Johto hasn't updated yet.
Forever dying for your update in the years to come,
