Seems like Deja vu...
First of all, it's my story and the Dialogue is correct, I even write in this
style in school, and my teacher says its okay. My teacher is smarter than you
when it comes to English, so if she says its okay, it is okay.
It's my story, if I capitalize a Pokemon's name it's my choice.
Before you send the same review over and over again, make sure to see if it
completely applies.

Yes, you are supposed to capitalize Pokemon, and any of the 643 Pokemon.
That's how they were supposed to be written. You obviously have not been into
Pokemon that long, so don't go around feeding false information to people who
are perfectly correct with their content.

Also, the plot didn't grab my attention, some parts didn't make sense. I
wasted my night reading all nine chapters of this.

Hello Farla! I wanted to thank you for your review. It's nice to get a
completely honest review to help point out mistakes that I made. I took a
look at the things you pointed out, and I agree that they all seem off. I'm
going to go back when I have time and try and fix what I messed up. Your
suggestion for a beta also seems like a good idea. Thank you!

Subject: Thanks!

Thank you for the review! I'll take it to heart (probably unlike many others)

I've searched through my story after your review and understood almost
everything put in.

The only thing I know, but have no clue what you mean is that I jump between
past and present tense. I probably don't see it because I'm the author and
authors have a big tendency to not see their faults when it's so obviously
there. Could you maybe explain a bit more? I understand what you mean, but I'm
more visual than anything, so I need examples to compare with (like you did
with the punctuation and capitalization).

When I read stories, I notice more than ever when dialogue is being abused.
Some people make their character says things that real life people wouldn't,
and if they would say something like that, either the reaction of the others
(in the story) are false or they stutter and repeat it until they get the
correct reaction (before annoyance). Something that most people do, I've
noticed from practically everyone, people talk to themselves a lot. Why having
the need to explain it in narration when all you're doing is repeating it by
talking?

And for the OC bit, I feel much more comfortable writing with characters that
aren't mine. If you want an example of this, go read my story The Blatant
Disregard Of A Poke Trainer, where all OCs are mine. I personally think that
this story of mine sucks @$$, even if it's in a C2 (how did this happen?!).

I'm pretty sure you don't want me to rant even more about my opinions. So I'll
leave you to that.
Thanks again!

Hey, thank you very much for the useful concrit. I can't believe I didn't
realize I messed up my dialogue tags. Your whole idea of NaReWriMo is really
helpful- thanks a lot for doing that, even if a lot of people don't seem to
appreciate it.

You know, I can't say I ever really had a ton of hope about the state of our education, but now...

I hope that kid's just lying to save face. I really, really do.

I think it's a misunderstanding. They were likely taught "Dialogue," said and don't understand that doesn't mean "Dialogue," narrative is always right. So it's true that their teacher said they were right, their teacher probably never saw them doing the latter, and they don't understand that what they were taught doesn't apply for all dialogue.
