Yeah, I got it. I'm sorry I haven't reviewed anything - I'm more of a writing person than a critic. Do you want to do a review exchange? I'll do my best at reviewing the most recent chapter, and you can check out my most recent fic. It's called Hoenn Reborn and, like yours, it's garnered considerable attention from some fan fiction greats (quoted in my sig). I just posted Chapter 3.
Trust me, I would love to go through the game like that, but I have this weird thing where I soon bsess over the game and hope to make it perfect (though I usually start again later). For example, I was recently thinking that i would have a Linoone in my Emerald game, but I looked at the Smogon age and it said it was bad. I know it shouldn't affect me and I tried not to make it, but now I probably won't get one.
There's also the issue of practicality in the games - not evolving your Pokemon is just handicapping yourself.
Can't help but notice this... ignore smogon. Linoone may stink competitively, but is currently a powerhouse in my emerald run. (I'm going through it all over again 3 times with different pokes each time, and this is my first).
im glad you like what you see, and ill see if i cant go clean things up a bit more later.
im something of a lazy messy writer, as you hvae seen.
you didnt really get the whole bit before fin blacking out huh? maybe i should go rewrite that a bit... i was hoping it sounded plausible that he did pass out/imagined the whole thing, since it is rather explainable and surreal. his friends vanishing, the man knowing his name, flashes of extreme emotion that he never usually feels at all.. maybe i should throw in more surreal imagery?
anyway, thanks again for the review, it means a lot to me!
This Arceus is famous for being a cheap revenge killer. Basically after Swords Dance and Life Orb boosts, it KO's everything (bar those resistent or immune to Extremespeed) in the Uber tier with priority. I was asking what people preferred when they use Arceus (cheap Extremekiller or normal Plate user). Does that make sense?
