Hi, I was enjoying the story so far, but excuse me, Furret defeated an Electivire? Leaf isn't even a Champion here, how the heck did a random Furret destroy Electivire, even if we aren't talking about game mechanics, Paul's Electivire technically defeated Ash's Infernape for a few seconds since Infernape did black out. It stands to reason that as time went by the already powerful Pokemon would be even more impressive. Leaf isn't even a Trainer in the anime, so I personally feel that the whole scene would have been more realistic, believable and intense if you had given her a more powerful Pokemon. That was the thing bugging me, I know this is your story, but I wanted to throw in my two cents. I apologise if I come across as demanding. I do enjoy your story idea, and my favorite element is how you weave in the different characters and their dynamics :)

Wow. I can't believe I get to read this masterpiece... for free. Amazing job so far.

This story was so much fun! I honestly couldn’t put it down at multiple points and it’s given me so many ideas for snippets extra scenes Id love to write up. It’s been an absolute delight watching Paul try to avoid the romance subplot like the plague before he gives in to the inevitable. I can picture him ending his argument with Kenny saying, “And for the record, I didn’t even want to play this stupid game in the first place. I’ve seen what it does to the rest of you idiots and it’s horrifying!” Dread them, run from them, hormones arrive all the same. All the other characters had plenty of awesome and fun moments too. Although, the Pokémon themselves don’t get much screen time. But that’s to be expected given how big the cast already is and the focus is on human connections.
My one minor gripe is the “G-Men” and invoking Pokémon names for swears are a tad silly and hard to take seriously. I honestly laughed out loud when I first read “Government Men agency” in some press conference or something. Maybe discussing the bus crash? But as I said, it’s a minor problem.
The one thing I cannot excuse though, is the criminal lack of Paul and Shinx content! That precious bean is a One Scene Wondercat and I need more content of it defrosting our favorite perpetual grump. That one chapter was just too cute to leave it as a one-off and I can’t stop thinking about how Shinx could have earned itself a place on Paul’s team during the expedition and gotten more scenes in the future.
Thanks again for a beautiful, addictive story. I was also delighted to discover you have more works building on this one and dove right in to many of them.
