Also, kind of loopy from sleepy + coffee.
(WHY CAN'T ANYONE WRITE DIALOGUE PROPERLY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY)
And if one more person asks for a review I am taking that option off.
The stories are just so frustrating
. I read two PMD-based stories in a row. Story 1
involves a trained pokemon ending up in the PMD-verse, at which point the author skillfully avoids having this premise matter in favor of all the other characters ignoring everything weird the pokemon says because it's so much more interesting to just explain the setting to us again, and then she and her other trained friend go LOL LET US FORM A TEAM AND START PLAYING POKEMON MYSTERY DUNGEON. Oh and also she is a special ivysaur with gemstones in her leaves that make give her superpowers.Story 2
involves a human who was in PMD-verse getting out again along with his two formerly pokemon buddies.
One of the three is a special persian who spends all her time walking on two legs and has a special blue colored gemstone, and when they get transformed she immediately figures out they're humans and exactly how old they are. SO OF COURSE SHE IS NOT THE TRANSFORMED ONE. No. The blue haired guy became a totally normal magneton, and the blue gemstone and walking upright thing is because she's the author's self-insert or something and totally unrelated.
And then she starts making all the decisions because "I bet you'll want to go to your hometown and talk to humans after spending years trapped with no one but talking pokemon to be around" is TOTALLY EXACTLY WHAT A TRANSFORMED TALKING POKEMON WOULD SAY TO THEIR FORMERLY POKEMON FRIEND WHO THEY HAVE NEVER KNOWN AS ANYTHING ELSE. And of course they'd find pokemon strange and unusual and off-putting, but have no problem talking to humans.
Because god forbid in a story where the idea is one character is a human and the other two are transformed pokemon that the human do the work of explaining things and setting goals and having a human viewpoint. No, it's special two-legged persian to the rescue! And of course none of them behave weirdly or anything, because the point of weird and interesting premises is to ignore them so you can get on with them being regular trainers! Because there are not enough stories with regular trainers about!
I MEAN IT'S NOT LIKE A TALKING POKEMON'S RESPONSE TO THEIR POKEMON STARTER TALKING TO THEM WOULD BE TO JUST START TALKING BACK LIKE IT IS A PERSON OR SOMETHING. NO THEY WOULD BE SURPRISED AND THEN LOOK TO THE HUMAN IN THE PARTY AND START DISCUSSING IT LIKE THE POKEMON ISN'T EVEN THERE. BECAUSE WHO KNEW POKEMON COULD TALK? IT IS SHOCKING AND AMAZING AND COMPLETELY WAY MORE IMPORTANT THAN WHAT THAT POKEMON IS ACTUALLY SAYING TO YOU.
In conclusion, when people demand to know why I decided to summon the elder gods to devour the world, I WILL POINT TO THIS. AND THEY WILL APOLOGIZE FOR QUESTIONING MY ACTIONS.
