''Pedestal'' is a {{Pokemon}} fanfic that starts out deceptively similar to other stories. A young trainer aspires ToBeAMaster, with great dreams of being the best, placing his hoped-for Pokemon on a [[TitleDrop pedestal]]. A year later than most trainers, he finally receives his starter... And it's a Numel. HilarityEnsues, but not for long.

--> ''You know what? Life sucks. I've been training for about four years now, and I've seen a whole lot of crap. [[KnowYourVines I've got scars from poison ivy]], [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes half-resolved neurosis about water]], [[AnimalsHateHim I've been beaten by more Pokemon than I can frankly remember]], [[ItMakesSenseInContext I've had holy water thrown at me]], [[BreadEggsMilkSquick I've had to cross-dress more times than I'd admit to in other circumstances]]...still, I've had bad luck since I can remember. It wears on you. This big stuff is...different. You can ignore it or you can fight against it. Either way -- [[ButtMonkey life sucks]].''

* WritersCannotDoMath: The poll to announce the public's predictions for the winner of the gym race is as follows: 17% for [[TheStoic Lola]], 15% for [[TakeAThirdOption the race being cancelled]], 13% for [[BewareTheNiceOnes Vaikuntha]], 10% for [[HairTriggerTemper Sela]], 8% for Keith, another 8% for [[ButtMonkey the protagonist]], 5% for [[TheAlcoholic Archie]], 3% for [[LipstickLesbian Alicia]], and another 3% for [[BrattyHalfPint Benjamin]]. This adds up to a total of 82%, so apparently 18% of voters were not counted.

Added DiffLines:

** Also, the time [[spoiler:Nick goes through Victory Road when his Rhyhorn nearly dies, and he releases his Froslass because it wouldn't kill]] is stated to be the fourth time, ''many'' chapters before it's revealed this all happened.
** In a more comedic example, the protagonist is deeply afraid of the ''fourth'' gym in the traditional circuit, Crasher Wake's, because his Water type is double super effective against the protagonist's starter.

* WhamEpisode: In the first half, there was much speculation as to where the plot was going. Chapter 57.57 promptly destroyed that.
