Fanfic: The Surprising Adventures of a Glaceon in Unova
A Fan Fic based on Pokémon Black and White , but with a twist: it tells the story as seen from one of Black's Pokémon, a Glaceon named Boreas. It can be found here and here.

List of tropes appearing in The Surprising Adventures of a Glaceon in Unova:

  • Added Alliterative Appeal: the chapter titles do this occasionally: Dire Difficulties at the Daycare, Pursuit of Plasma, The Stolen Skull, Rolling Rocks, and Of Trapped Tails, Crazy Corvids, and Fencing Friends
  • An Ice Person: Boreas, obviously. I mean, he's a Glaceon.
  • Anti-Hero: Boreas is a type 2.
  • Anyone Can Die: After chapter 38...
  • The Big Guy: Lucius.
  • Breather Episode: Part seven (chapters 43-49) gives a very well-deserved break after the Darker and Edgier part six. Also Chapter 12, appropriately named "Repose", is about the characters taking a vacation of a month after the battling against Team Plasma during the chapters before it and some light romance.
  • Chivalrous Pervert: Boreas, Aqua, and Black are this on occasion.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Selene the Murkrow. Burgh and N also count.
  • Character Development: At the beginning of the flashback, Boreas is a very childish young Eevee with a big trauma due to his family's Death by Origin Story. By now, he has grown up a lot (though he occasionally has his lapses of childishness) and has had closure for his family's death.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Boreas. He frequently used underhanded tactics, like throwing macaroni into his opponent's eyes or taking the enemy trainer hostage to force him to surrender.
  • Darker and Edgier: Compared to the original games. The main characters occasionally battle the Seven Sages, who all seem to be around Ghetsis' power level and shoot to kill.
    • Part six (chapters 36-42) compared to the rest of the fic.
  • Death by Origin Story: Boreas' family. Also, Aqua's boyfriend Lothario, who was killed by human hunters.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: Boreas often has trouble concentrating when talking to Aqua.
  • The Dragon: Diego, to Ghetsis. It's even pointed out by chapter 50's title "Day of the Dragons". Notice that dragons is plural, while the only literal dragon important to the chapter is Zekrom. But the chapter also features a big fight scene with Diego.
  • Eye Scream: In chapter 16 Boreas blinds an enemy Crawdaunt by digging his claws into its eyes.
  • The Fantastic Trope Of Wondrous Titles
  • Friend Versus Lover: Boreas and Toxica fight over Octa.
  • Friendly Tickle Torture: Between Boreas and Aqua in chapter 24, leading to an Almost Kiss.
  • Groin Attack: Boreas used this on Diego, N's Zoroark, during their battle.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Capella, to save Boreas' life.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: Boreas and Octa.
  • Hurricane of Euphemisms: In chapter 29:
"I kissed her! She kissed me! We snogged, osculated, smooched, made out! Whatever you want to call it, the result is the same: we kissed."
