Thanks for the review, Griff. Bay picked out some of the pokemon hints like the voice of bulbasaur during the hallucination and the barnyard odor possibly being that of pokemon. There's still some major hints in there as to what the plot of the fic is and how pokemon are involved, but I guess they'll remain secret for now. I'm trying to let the cat out of the bag really soon, though. I hope you'll stay with it! Thanks for all your help!
