YMMV / The Sun Soul

  • Broken Base: The ending of Chapter 22 has been understandably causing some of this, with some swearing off the fic entirely and others strengthened in their resolve to power through.
  • Darkness-Induced Audience Apathy: Oh yes.
  • HSQ : The battle scenes, especially Chapter 22's battle for Celadon, tend to draw out a lot of these if the reviews are anything to go by.
  • Lawful Evil: James seems to qualify in Chapter 18. Or he might be on the really, really dark side of Lawful Neutral, given his Utopia Justifies the Means attitude and strict loyalty to Team Rocket and his apparent loyalty to Jessie.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The Weedle spawning grounds in Viridian Forest, the monstrosities in Mt. Moon, the creatures in the fog of Lavender Town, the scenes inside the Pokemon Tower, how Haunter attacks Team Rocket's Charizard... let's face it, this entire Fic is Nightmare Fuel.
    • Haunter is becoming more and more of one. If it's not reducing people to bloody messes, it's laughing maniacally about doing so.
      • It gets worse when Mewtwo visits Ash and directs him to rescue Sabrina from Team Rocket. Haunter's behavior upon sensing Mewtwo's mind reaching out to them suggests that Mewtwo is strong enough to scare even Haunter, despite the fact that Mewtwo would suffer from an Elemental Rock-Paper-Scissors related disadvantage. The disadvantage had been previously stated to render psychics almost helpless against ghosts: the implication is that Mewtwo is a powerful enough psychic that he can still easily take down ghost types.
    • Ash killing an Aerodactyl by summoning his Snorlax. In its throat.
