* Axew is often treated as the NaiveNewcomer due to being new to Pokémon Battling. Wanting to prove himself, he goes in the forest looking for a fight ... [[OhCrap and meets a Young Trainer with his Nidoran.]] Does he run away? No. Instead, ''little Baby Tooth manages to defeat the Nidoran despite being poisonned and on his own, complete with a [[CallingYourAttack called]] [[SignatureMove Dragon Pulse]] as a FinishingMove!'' And even after being defeated by Seel, he still finds the strength to return to Ash and only pass out in his arms. Ash was quite pissed at the younger Trainer ...

Not only is it written in SurprisinglyGoodEnglish with only a few problems of spelling and grammar or weird syntax here and there (something the author apologises daily for), ''but it is also her most popular fic so far and has spinned both a sequel and a spin-off!'' One reviewer even commented she wrote English better than he did! Also, she's French.

Added DiffLines:

* The rewrite of the third movie is awesome even to the story's already high standards, notably toward the end.
** For starters, Ash doesn't stumble upon the roblem by coincidence. This is his first mission as a Chosen.
** The plan, even though it was devised by [[MartyStu Silver]] is still very clever and even Delia's kidnapping only changes who's in which team.
** Simon and Ash tag-team against Entei and, when the dream-Beast proves too strong, Heracross prays for - and receives - the mean to fight it on equal footing: that to become human. Entei still wins, though, which leands to ...
** Charizard's return, catching a fainted Heracross in hybrid form and casually pulling a BigDamnHero while quietly [[SmokingIsCool lighting himself a smoke]] ... which he uses as a makeshift Smokestreen.
** Molly tries to stop the group's retreat and covers the room in pikes ... only for Simon to be nearly eviscerated while pushing Ash out of the way. Ash being Ash, he doesn't take it well. Ash being [[PapaWolf Silver's student]], his retaliation is nothing short of epic. And by epic, we mean ''Silver freaked out at the sight.'' Yes, you heard right. The borderline MartyStu, millenia-old superpowered Ancient was scared of his adoptive son and forced the entire group to hightail it as fast as they could. [[DontAskJustRun When Silver tells you to run]], [[ThisIsGonnaSuck you obey]].

** Before Dragonite enters, Axew pulling a BoomHeadshot with Dragon Pulse against a transformed Ditto. Drake notes that Ash knew about Ditto's ability and made it backfire by choosing Axew, as Dragons and Ghosts are vulnerable to themselves. Folliwing is SNorlax shrugging most of Onix's moves, Pikachu's point-blank Zap Cannon on Gengar, Onix using her entire body to fire Solar Beam and Rapidash's grinding of Electivire before a Solar Beam finish.

** During the Dragonite struggle, Rapidash finally mega-evolves into a fiery winged unicorn. It comes completely out of nowhere ,but it doesn't change the fact that ''Ash finally performed a mega-evolution'', and this after three other characters made it.

** Ash vs. Gary. First, Tyrogue defeats his Hitmonlee of a father and evolves before quickly dealing with Blastoise. Then Gary reveals his true colors, ''snaps'' and one-shots him with a crazed Alakazam. Ash counters him by calling Mightyena, using Aura to perform a form of MentalFusion and snapping the bond between Gary and Alakazam, which causes Gary's mind to shatter.

* "A Chosen's might". When Ash is asked to play with the Heart Flute so the Counsil can see his heart, he makes a melody so beautiful that it leaves the entire room silent in awe at its beauty. Reshiram says that no word can escribe it and Meloetta admits she wanted to dance and sing along, but she was unsure if she could do the song justice. One of the Legendaries notes that it comes from the Pokémon standing for Arts, and especially for singing and dancing.

* Ash vs. Drake at the end of Mysteries of the sea. Nearly every reader considers it as good as Ash vs. A. J. in the Indigo League, and there's indeed food for comment. Let's get started ...
** Drake has been the undefeated Champion for twenty years. Ash trounces five of his Pokémon in a row and without seemingly much effort. The Champion gets it back when Mega-Dragonite [[CurbStombBattle does the same]] with Ash's team.
**Before Dragonite enters, Axew pulling a BoomHeadshot with Dragon Pulse against a transformed Ditto.

Folliwing is Onix shrugging most of Onix's moves, Pikachu's point-blank Zap Cannon on Gengar, Onix using her entire body to fire Solar Beam and Rapidash's grinding of Electivire before a Solar Beam finish.
** Finally, Drake's [[TheReveal reveal]] of Mega-Dragonite. Ash has a massive OhCrap moment that couples with HeroicBSOD and is unable to battle for the first round. It takes Axew going singlehandedly against the monster and losing to make him snap. What follows is the entire team going one by one against the monster in hopes of wearing him down, with Ash coming up with a CrazyAwesome plan to defeat it. It works.
*** Said plan? To combine Lapras's ice and Rapidash's fire to generate miniature thunderclouds, then using Pikachu's electricity to charge them up before using Dragonite's big horn as a lightning rod. It's so crazy and unexpected that ''no one'' sees it coming. In the end, Pikachu ends up defeating Dragonite by having a thunder bolt strike its horn. Drake is speechless.
** During the Dragonite struggle, Rapidash finally mega-evolves into a fiery winged unicorn. It comes completely out of nowhere ,but it doesn't change the fact that ''Ash finally performed a mega-evolution'', and this after three other characters made it.
** Axew's sheer determination during the fight. Dragonite was much, much stronger than him and the battle was a planned defeat. Yet Axew proved extremely resilient and managed to actually wound Mega-Dragonite twice, with only the pseudo-legendary's final Dragon Rush hitting. And yet, Axew still has the strength to come back to his Trainer and give the Dragon a final 'fuck you'. As a review says it:
-->"A pokémon with type advantage that's three evolutionary stages ahead of me? Bring it on, it's time to dance!"
