Thank you for being the first new reader to actually review my fan fiction. The thing about the school being close minded, you know how some adults are; not knowing the potential of the students. Take a look at Yu-Gi-Oh! GX. About the money thing, well you'll find out later.I decided to give this story a go-through, and I'm liking it so far. There are a couple things I want to mention, though.
As some previous reviewers have said, it seems a bit odd that trainers as experienced as the characters in this story feel a need to attend a Pokemon Academy. This especially due to the fact that, based on some of the answers that Jyharri's teachers expect, this school seems to have a fairly closed-minded view on Pokemon training.
Then there's the aftermath of the Jyharri vs. Sydnie battle. It just strikes me as strange that a school specifically for Pokemon Training is not built to be able to withstand a Pokemon Battle. And then there are the unreasonable demands the Headmaster made of Jyharri afterwards; after all, it was mind-numbingly obvious that the damage was Sydnie's fault as well, and that said damage was due to a Pokemon Battle, something that the school, I would think, is supposed to condone. That said, I would think that Jyharri would have at least gotten more options than a "Get me 1500 dollars or I break your kneecaps".
There were a couple other things in the most recent chapter. The most blatant of these is that, despite having one as the main character's most often used Pokemon, you appear to have forgotten Zangoose's Immunity ability, which meant that the way he lost to Nidorino should not have happened. The reaction of the spectators immediately after the battle(I'd almost go as far to say during the battle as well) also seems unrealistic; considering how you've spent the last several chapters emphasizing how one-sided a battle between a first-year and a fourth-year should be, you would think that Jyharri would have gotten at least some support considering how close he managed to come to actually winning.
I completely forgot about Zangoose's ability to be honest XD You would think I would have remembered Zangoose being one of my favorites. The whole point of the battle was to show Jyharri there is more than one way to win a battle other than brute force. As to the crowd's reaction, it was to knock him down a few pegs. Haven't you noticed his arrogance? Even I got tired of him and wanted to stick it to him but I let Drake handle it. You sees I told Jyharri knock off that cockiness or I'm gonna shove my foot in your throat.
I wanted these students to be the elite. Not too elite so they don't need to train of course. I mean the first years are supposed to be good, but then fourth years are supposed to be on an entirely different level. You get what I'm saying?
Once again I thank you for the review. This post was only for clarification. Did you want to be on the PM list?
