The Retelling of Pokémon Colosseum

    Props man. Nothing could ever come close to this.

    Keep me on the PM list, I want to read the next fic you write!

    Might as well leave a review now, since I read this brilliant star of a fic and haven't done that yet. Pay no attention to the crazy man rambling in the review.:

    I absolutely love the reference to Miror B's next choice in music. That certainly explains the radical change from salsa to disco. And I had to laugh out loud at Feraligatr's comment on Celebi wearing eyeliner. That was just hysterical.

    I love the memorable personalities that you crafted not only for your human characters, but for pretty much every Pokemon that popped up in this fic. There's so many writers that can't bring the best of both worlds, and it's really a pleasure to see an author who not only do that, but do it in a spectacular fashion.

    I also couldn't help but notice that you went back to your earlier chapters and corrected the mistakes you made. That might be the most impressive part; even the best stories can be made better, and it's refreshing to see another person who recognizes that.

    I'd have to say that Umbreon's mean look attack is full of epic win. That has to be the most adorable expression ever. Of all time.

    I laughed at the fact that Tom owned something as powerful as Raikou, but then my laughing stopped as he hit upon the perfect solution as to what to do with it. I can't say that I can argue against releasing it; nobody can chain a legend (although the numerous people that have caught legendary Pokemon in their games would probably say something about that).

    I can't really say what scene is my favorite. The Miror B. fight has a lot of merit to it, but the full-scale battle around the end was also fun to read. Still, Hariyama throwing a freaking Sharpedo into the stands was also good. Oh, and Feraligatr (as a Croconaw) sweeping out an entire room with one surf attack. ...And also every scene where Espeon and Umbreon bicker. And...man, why did you have to make so many awesome scenes? I can't choose all of them!

    My favorite character in this fic...man, I really don't know. All of the Pokemon were awesome, and the human characters were impressive as well. Okay, maybe Umbreon...or Espeon...or Miror B. Okay, maybe it's some other character that I'll probably remember once I send this review.

    I could really go on all night expressing how much I love this fic, but you probably don't want to hear more of my rambling. I hope that this review suffices for all of those chapters I was going to review but didn't. So, anyway, kudos to you for sticking with this fic for so long. I don't think that a single person here hasn't enjoyed reading it, and that's about as rare of a sight as I've ever seen online.

    Thanks for the reviews thus far! If you still want to say something there's still a good deal of time before I will move this to the Completed Fics sectio, but do say so sooner rather than later!
    Yep. =p
    Better late than never, I suppose.
    Demons would be summoned instead. Or maybe just Celebi's eyeliner.
    Wes felt that the Celebi wasn't keen on purifying all those Pokemon, hence the Mean Look.
    Many trips to the bathroom.
    Hopefully you will enjoy those too! Thanks for the review. =)
    Never thought my fic would be called an 'era'. ._. High praise indeed. Thanks for the comments though! =D
    Thanks to you too! And well, you'll have to hope after I work on some other things. =p
    Agreed - first time reading or playing anything is always the most enjoyable imo.
    Well to be fair he wouldn't know in part because he'd be squashed under a Dragonite. =p You must be pretty strong to lift those up though!
    Oh, they get a good question in every once in a while. Say a few months.
    Tom refuses to answer this. He is also currently unable to answer due to being too drunk.
    It's so. =p
    I probably need to offer language classes on how to understand Tom lingo. =p Thanks for the review, and hopefully you will enjoy any other fic/s I may do. =)
    If you do I look very much forward to it. =)
    Good to hear. Thanks for all your reviews! =)
    Understandable - each to their own I suppose. Drunken speech is not everyone's favourite thing to read and all.
    I can kinda see how Plusle has similarites to Yanma, but I'll argue that Yanma had meaningful things to say in the first place. =p
    Idk, it just didn't feel right to myself for it to evolve or to write it in, and so I didn't go through with it. *shrug*
    I guess also him saying it would be needless too given it's pretty obvious he'd not want her to be kidnapped.
    Thanks for the reviews!
    Indeed it is. =)
    You're welcome! =p
    Thanks for the review, and hopefully any other stuff I do will also entertain you. =)
    Heck yeah RHCP indeed. =D
    Miror B should always be approved of. =p
    Sometimes; sometimes they are just drawn on and sometimes they have none at all. At times they aren't even socks!
    I guess I wouldn't be that surprised either...
    I suppose it is, haha. Then again most Pokemon drunk is amusing.
    I would eat more bananas if they were spelt like that.

    Thanks. And thank you for your many entertaining reviews. Many a laugh has been had by myself at hair-parasites and mistaking pastris for panties. XD
    Not going to give a guarantee on the next fic being funny, but a few of my current ideas are along that vein...? We shall see I suppose though!
    Thanks! And sure, I suppose I can keep a other-fics-PM list.
    But paying attention is fun. =p But I'll say now - thaks a lot for this review! I certainly appreciate it. (Also thanks for what you said in your nomination - I felt that I have improved in writing since when I started and it's good to see others also agree with that).
    I'll admit that I had those bits added in on th go with the epilogue writing; with Miror B's it fitted too well to pass up even if I had some other personal theories on how his music style changed.
    They were quite fun to come up with too, and even more fun to write. XD
    I've still got a lot of editing to do yet, haha. =p
    Also an 'on-the-spot' idea (well, the need for a mean look attack was also come up with at the time of writing)...
    This however was something I came up with ages ago. It just felt the right thing for the fic in the end re what's done with the legendary beasts.
    Well... why not? =p
    For the record, my favourite one to write was Miror B easily, but 2nd favourite I am much less sure of.
    But I like rambling. :<
    It certainly is a good review. XD Thanks again!

    Also, Mia/boc happened to make some more art of Makuhita.

    Congratulations once more for finishing this fic. Sorry for the late review ;p What should be said is said. Well, almost. I haven’t reviewed yet ;)

    The epilogue was a nice touch: the party was a big hit (to read), what with Johnson and Plusle and the piñata of a chubby Es Cade (wish I could buy one). The reporters are living up to their reputation (and pleasant to read as always). But:

    It’s still strange that they finally asked a normal question. Never mind the 1/months ‘catch’ rate.

    Andrew surely looks forward to returning to Orre as it seems. Indeed, only Orre could have made such an impression on someone.

    So funny!

    That’s why Cipher returned five years later…

    Don’t you need sth after ‘whether’? It’s just sounds strange for me. But I’m not a native speaker, so…

    This must be my favourite part. Plusle’s answer is plusly unbeatable.

    Yes, but a drunk Raikou… that steals drinks from Tom. Epic.

    Eyeliners help in time-travelling. Fashion is just an excuse.

    Umbreon’s Mean Attack is a hit (though unbearable to Pokémon).

    I’ll miss the unique characters you created. And the humour. And the time I spent figuring where the heck did you think up one thing or another. And why everything you’ve written must be so funny. Good job.

    Thank you.

    ~Truthfully yours~

    Thanks for the congrats! Don't worry about the delay, I don't mind it (better late than never anyways ;p).

    They are $29.95 in all good retail stores. =p
    I suppose it's out of the norm for them. XD
    Not only Pokemon left the Orre region. XD
    ...yes, I do. Where did the stuff I write there go? @_@ *goes to fix* No wait, I just need to remove 'on whether' and it's fine.
    And I felt Plusle deserved one last bit of airtime as well, heh.
    Not how Tom views it!
    Yeah, it's a long explanation that would have gone over everyone's head, says Celebi. Definitely. *whistles*
    Thanks for the review, and I suppose you're welcome for the entertainment. =)

    Truly a great fic and wonderful ending. I really enjoyed reading every single chapter. The humor was great, the characters were great, basically everything was great.
    Ho-oh's reason behind showing up was especially funny and Umbreon ending with a the end was very pleasing. All in all this fic is great and it's kinda sad to see it end.

    Thank you bobandbill for all the fun I've had reading this fic.

    Can't say I don't like the sound of that. =p
    I had been unsure for a while on how to end the story, admittedly, but I ended up going for that. And Ho-oh's explanation I already touched on, heh.
    You are welcome. =)

    AuraChannelerChris "Hello again."

    Wait, what? I never thought you did finish this. I guided myself using fanfiction.net all this time and then you stopped giving updates there...

    Well, I guess I'll have to continue the last chapters from here. Good show.
  9. bobandbill

    bobandbill Winning Smile Staff Member Super Mod

    I feel like responding with the first sentence you used as ffnet has all the updates too! =p Unless you're referring to the hiatus I had beforehand that ended a year+ before I finished the fic, I guess, which was a lack of updates everywhere.

    Anyways hope you enjoy the rest then. (Also thanks for the review jeffdavid102, even if you deleted it, as I can see the such ;D).

    I really should move this by now to completed fics even with some undone edits... *moves* If you wish to leave a comment (and I like them so I recommend doing so =p), send me a VM/PM!
