Professor chapter 9 . 11/23/2013
Hells yes. Good to see this updated. Keep up the good work.

Also, I fucking love how Red is essentially retelling his life out to a nameless rocket grunt(us) and that when it shifts o another person's view, it uses more present tenses rarer than past tense, showing that the scene was happening during the time of Red's past, but not with Red himself. Fucking love it.

Fuck, I misclicked.

Anyways, the fact that you essentially state that luck has little to do with this world of pokemon and repeatedly enforce the fact that skill, planning, talent and ambition is what allows the starting trainer to truly become great is just astounding. I enjoy how Red is so... Red. There is truly very little I can say about his character. It's so frustrating because while I can't put it into a short sequence of words, I can just feel his desire and ambition and his challenging personality that it just intensely rages within me as I type his out.

Gods though, I absolutely LOVE his character though! He is no typical protagonist character off of some shonen jump manga who goes through obvious and good plot and character development; he is a teenager who has tossed his life into pokemon at a young age, determined to be he absolute best, learning intensive and vast amounts of knowledge about POKEMON before even being a Trainer, dedicating his life to pokemon. I love how his knowledge and grittiness is backed up by the reality that pokemon are fucking dangerous as FUCK and that those who don't truly understand what they are going into are near certainly going to die because they aren't aware of the dangers that pokemon possess. Red doesn't come off to me as some overpowered, omniscient jackwad who fucking knows everything and has virtually no flaws; he's fucking talented as fuck, put years into pokemon and survival as a trainer, resourceful as shit, pragmatic with a healthy dose of realism and empathy, and just fucking knows how the fuck pokemoning goes in the world.

God fucking dammit, I wish there were more people who wrote good, realistic, non-gore-everywhere pokemon stories like you. Holy fucking shit.

I am enjoying this to the highest of degrees.

There is a something within his story that just... Exhudes pure quality and grittiness and realism. The implications that there is little luck involved in the world of P

Can't really ask you for more with the choice you've made. All I'll say is you've done a good job with this story. At the most realistic level I've seen besides The Sun Soul. Write when and what you want.
Arvarno chapter 9 . 11/20/2013
It's overall very nicely written, but the characterization bothers me.

The protagonist is supposedly 16, but reads like a grizzled 40 year old veteran who is already familiar with everything, and just decided that he's going to try battling for a living

That just doesn't seem to be right. Sure, he might have grown up in a small town and have practice with Pokemon, but after getting out of it, he has no problems figuring out markets, making a living on his own, knows about betting, free-for-all battles, and so on. He's even only mildly confused when Green offers sex all of a sudden. In fact his entire conversation with Green looks like the interaction of two long time proffesionals.

So overall it reads rather Mary Sue-ish. This guy is never at a loss of what to do, never inexperienced, never makes stupid newbie mistakes. And this gets boring because I don't really see much room for growth here.

Olive Master chapter 9 . 11/19/2013
I love how each update makes the wait seem nonexistant.
flying-fennekins chapter 9 . 11/19/2013
I'm speechless. Your characterizations of Bill and that Clefairy as well as Misty, Red's philosophy, everything.
You're one hell of a writer, you know that?
Reeves-san chapter 9 . 11/19/2013
You are still such an amazing author. Beautiful chapter once again.

That clefairy Bil scene... I was laughing my ass off the entire time. I find myself wanting more Bill now...

I'll be waiting for the next chapter no mattter how long it takes. Happy writing!

Sneakers6 chapter 6 . 11/17/2013
I came across this FanFic a few days ago and could not stop reading. I have searched the Internet for a more realistic few of the Pokémon world and all I could find was either porn or trashy-misspelled works. And finding this story, your story was truly a treasure to me. The adventure, the way you portray characters, the way you write: brutal and true. I love it. It threw me right into nostalgia. I love Pokémon and to this day wish that the Poké-universe was real. Thank you for this fic and inspiring me to write my own. It is truly worth reading.
