This is part 3 of my review to you. There are 2 reasons that I am still writing these reviews that are making my thumb and index finger sore on my DSi. 1, I don't want my opinions to be cut off and incomplete, and 2, because I don't want you to think that I only have negative opinions and criticism of your fic. I want to start by restressing my point on Luin's pokemon. I wish for Suicune to be more involved in the dialogue and events, and downgrading Mindstrike to saving them a spot in line? I found that rather ridiculous. But that is all my negative comments on the story, it looks like more than it is, because I really love this story and these are small things that I think would make it better. I can't think of specific positive things to compare to the negative, but the pluses are far more. I'm a bit afraid that these will go unread and this story and fanfics in general have been long abandoned by you, but I hope you see this and see that people still read your amazing stories. After reading these, I have become a huge fan and I hope you don't think that this is all negative. This took ages to type on a DSi touchscreen, so I hope you see it!
From your huge fan,
Awesomequake (Or just Jake).

I didn't say all I wanted to say about the story in my last review (ran out of space), so I decided to do another one. I hope I'm not breaking any rules here, as it seems I'm supposed to review this on a per-chapter basis, but I want to get all my comments out on the story all at once. But anyway, time to continue my review.
I want to start with my previous comments on the "too many pokemon" thing that it seems you have going here. I want to finish up my rant on that by going back to Frozen Wind. The pokedex that Luin had was important in establishing the fact that he was not of that world, and that he alone controlled those pokemon. With Winds of Hope, you have broken all of the limitations that you created in Frozen Wind, actually giving everyone else a pokedex. Now this(should be) impossible, as they haven't even been to Luin's world to recieve a dex, instead having it "magically appear" in their bags. These are all the complaints I have about Luin's sharing of pokemon, with the conclusion pretty much being to ask you to keep some of the distance and uniqueness that Luin had in Frozen Wind (well when it comes to pokemon and power, anyway. I rather like where you're going with the character's personality).
But whatever, thats just the complaint of a novice reader and reviewer that has shown up way too late to a story that is probably abandoned. I sure know I can't do better than this, I'm a terrible writer and I possess an inferior imagination, this is your story, not mine.
But now that I'm done commenting on the probable multitude of pokemon, I have to say something opposite to it, the lack of them. Luin's pokemon have taken quite a big backseat to the story, not showing up as often as they should, and in turn, it seems that that part of Luin's personality has taken a hit from it. Suicune has not participated very much in the conversations in the story, and the interactions between Luin, Suicune, and the other characters that I love to read have not shown up.

I read this story a few days ago, and it is one of my favorites. I used to just read storys and not review them, but I really wanted to say something about this one, so I made myself an account to do so (this is my first review). The only reason I'm even saying anything is because you haven't updated in so long, so I wanted to practically beg you to continue.
I think that this fic isn't quite as good as Frozen Wind (which ranks among my top 3 so far [although i've only been reading fanfics for a couple weeks, I just got into it when I got my DSi for my birthday, I don't have a computer, i'm typing this on my touchscreen now, which is a HUGE pain]), but this is a great sequel to it, and I would hate to see it stop. But anyway, on to the actual comments of the story.
The whole "Pokemon Trainer" dressphere thing surprised me in general. One of the things that I liked about Luin was that he alone controlled the power of the pokemon from his world (besides Rikku and Vib, but that was only one somewhat weak pokemon). And now it seems that eventually, all 4 main characters will have their own full party of pokemon to command. I liked the idea of maybe one pokemon to each of them, but 6 for each main character (with one legendary each) seems very excessive. It doesn't give Luin any sort of special thing to separate himself from the females, despite the fact that he commands his full party right off the bat. Having 24 pokemon (with at least 2, maybe 4 being legendarys) potentially at the groups command at once is way too many characters too keep track of, especially with the nicknames they will probably get. Overall I believe that Luin should be the only one to keep a full party, or else 1, There will be too many characters (and I can't think of the pokemon as anything but their own character, patticularly Luin's), and 2, Luin will lose the only thing that keeps him unique from the other main characters (except of course the gender difference lol). No more space...

Not as good as " Frozen Wind", but it's still good.
Please make a sequel to " Frozen Wind" that doesn't go to FFX-2.
