* TrueCompanions: Dan's other Pokémon become this for Missy. It's a {{Crowning Moment of Heartwarming}} when all of them, even Ruby, strive to bring her out of her {{Heroic BSOD}}. It becomes even more moving when you realise that they sacrificed their homeworld, their own sense of normalcy, and their chances of finding potential mates and having children in order to follow Dan and Missy back home, even when they don't need to. All they need now is a cheesy speech.

Revealing too much of the plot would be criminal, but readers can be sure to experience unexpected developments, emotionally charged dialogue and entertaining fight sequences - and a unique interpretation of the Pokémon world which may be truer to RealLife than any canon interpretation to date, while never losing the story's initial charm. All of this eventually culminates in an [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome action-packed]], [[TearJerker gut-wrenching]], and yet surprisingly [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming uplifting]] climax. The final chapters were posted on May 26, 2010.

* FauxAffablyEvil: Masque is so eloquent, melodramatic, and occasionally downright ''funny'' its easy to forget that he's a completely unsympathetic, hateful bastard. [[spoiler: At least until the final chapters, when he shows his true colors.]]

*** BigBad: Giovanni
*** TheDragon: Rico. Also doubles as [[spoiler: a ReverseMole]].

''Pokémon: Storm Clouds'' is a {{Pokemon}} FanFic written by [[TroperWorks troper]] {{Tropers/deeman45}}. It follows the journey of two teens from [[RealLife "our world"]] who are [[TrappedInTVLand sucked into the world of the Pokémon video games]]. One is a VideoGame enthusiast named Dan, who tries to use his [[GenreSavvy knowledge of the game world]] to try to find a way back home; the other is Missy (real name Melissa), his best friend's younger sister who was [[{{Animorphism}} transformed into an Eevee]] and thus must deal with not only finding a way home, but also trying to find a way back to her normal body. Along the way, they get caught up in a plot involving Team Rocket (the more competent Team Rocket, not the TerribleTrio from the anime) and find out that not everything in the Pokémon world is as happy-go-lucky as the games would make it seem...

* DarkerAndEdgier: Than pretty much any {{Pokemon}} canon, except for possibly [[VideoGame/PokemonColosseum Orre]]. [[TropesAreNotBad This isn't a bad thing, though.]]
** Mind you, being darker than {{Pokemon}} canon isn't a terribly difficult feat. It's still far from {{Grimdark}} levels.

To give hints of what was to come, he posted a series of updates through his DeviantART journals over a 13-week period regarding 'elements' of his version of the Pokémon world which are to play a role in the story. More recently, he posted [[http://deeman45.deviantart.com/journal/37159706/ A Q&A about the characters, the plot, and the writing process, with all questions asked by fans]].
