[[spoiler: This ties in with what she eventually wants to do later: to comfort those like Katie in future.]]
** When Bolt is captured, Alseides blames Sylvia for it since she saw it happen, and she later believes it really was her fault. [[spoiler: When Sylvia says this to Bolt, he thinks she is bluffing, and admits it was his own fault.]]
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: [[spoiler:Dilandau.]] When we are first told about him, he is described as a monster, and when we eventually meet him, he is in the process of destroying a cave and a forest, the homes of countless Pokemon. [[spoiler: And then we learn why he's like this from Nicodemus. Because of unethical experiments performed on him against his will, his psyche is so utterly destroyed that he can never be fixed. His heart may be in the right place, but his mind will never follow...]]
* KillItWithFire: Dilandau.
* LackOfEmpathy: Dilandau.
* LeaveYourQuestTest: Nearly every trainer and/or Pokemon Sylvia meets offers one of these, for one reason or another. Sylvia doesn't leave her quest, though, as the entire point of returning home ''was to choose what exactly she wanted''.

* OrwellianRetcon: Moondancer's nickname was originally Moonie, as a reference to early 90s ''Manga/SailorMoon'' [[PeripheryDemographic fans]]. But after the UnfortunateImplications were pointed out, she changed it to Dancer.
* PhraseCatcher: Many people of Flocessy Ranch will say that Sylveon was 'tailor-made' for Sylvia, as it not only matches her personality, but her name as well.

* PluckyGirl: Sylvia.

* ShoutOut: Many. The 'Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime and games, ''Anime/TheVisionOfEscaflowne'', ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'', ''Franchise/SailorMoon'', ''Literature/BlackBeauty'', just to name a few.
* ScissorsCutsRock: Dilandau is able to set fire to a cave. While the inhabitants of the cave [[ColdIron may be weak to Fire attacks]], the cave itself isn't.
* ShrinkingViolet: Bambi, Sylvia's friend. [[spoiler: Before he evolves.]]
* ThatCameOutWrong: Polly the Porygon states that her trainer, Desaline, needs to die now. Upon the outrage from all of the other Pokemon, Polly elaborates that [[MercyKill it is better to die sooner than to continue living with a fatal health condition.]]
* TheSociopath: Dilandau.
* TookALevelInBadass: Sylvia. She starts off unable to properly battle, but lots of training both in the Kalos research lab and on her journey helped her grow stronger, both physically and mentally, to the point where she manages to defeat various strong Pokemon [[spoiler:including Moondancer]] in battle. She's even ''forced'' to do so in order for the story to advance!
* TookALevelInJerkass: [[spoiler: Vapor and Alseides, the latter in a much crueler and more volatile fashion.]]
* TookALevelInKindness: [[spoiler: Bolt and Moondancer.]]

* WouldHitAGirl: Dilandau outright attacks Sylvia at various points in the story due to [[TastesLikeDiabetes her cute appearance]] and [[CrazyJealousGuy the belief that she's trying to take Nicodemus from him]], which isn't true.

''When an Eevee is forcibly separated from her family, she goes on a long journey through Unova to return to the only home she knows. But the journey is rough, even tragic, as she is continually rejected wherever she goes. Why? She is the second Sylveon born in the whole entire world, and she doesn't know how she evolved into this strange new creature.''

''Sylvia the Sylveon'' is a well-written, and (somewhat) realistic tale of what may happen if a young girl is kidnapped as Sylvia was. She meets a colourful cast on a journey of self discovery, hoping one day to return home to her family on Flocessy Ranch.

If only she knew how much she would have suffered thanks to that...

!!This fanfiction series contains examples of:

* ActionGirl: Hikaru. Put her friends in danger, and she'll zap you with some epic thunderbolts! Sylvia pretty much knows she has to become one in order for the story to progress.
* AffectionateNickname: Moondancer's siblings call him Dancer, but he hates it.
* ArtisticLicense: In the story, Sylvia evolves via an item, but in the actual X and Y games, Eevee evolve into Sylveon via Pokemon-Amie and knowing a fairy type move. It's justified in that the story began in February of 2013, and Sylveon's actual means of evolution weren't revealed until October of that year. This mistake has been acknowledged in the author's epilogue notes.
* [[spoiler: AxCrazy: Alseides and Dilandau. The latter gets worse after he evolves.]]
* {{Badass}}: [[spoiler: Konoha.]] He defies his sadistic trainer, first by running off and evolving into the Pokémon he wants when his trainer had another evolution in mind, then, after a beating-up, ''destroying his Poké Ball'', therefore freeing himself.
* BigBrotherBully: Bolt starts off this way. [[spoiler: He grows out of it. Alseides not only doesn't grow out of this phase, he becomes ''much'' more volatile. Vapor, on the other hand, becomes one.]]
* BigEater: Alseides and Bolt.
* [[BigFriendlyDog Big Friendly Stoutland]]: Nicodemus.
* BloodKnight: [[spoiler: Alseides, post-TimeSkip. It's unknown if he stays this way or not.]]
* BreakTheCutie: The story pretty much runs on this, namely in flashbacks. Dilandau was subject to unethical experiments, Nicodemus lost his family, Hikaru's backstory is pretty much this, and Sylvia has to go through a lot, and many events she sees change her views on the world forever.
* BrutalHonesty: Dilandau, [[spoiler: Vapor,]] and Polly, all for differing reasons.
* CallingYourAttacks: Sylvia does this during her battles with Dilandau, Alseides, and Moondancer. Hikaru and Moondancer do it as well.
* CharacterDevelopment: Both on-screen and off-. [[spoiler: Sylvia grows from an innocent little child WideEyedIdealist into a strong, sensible, and assertive young adult during her journey, while still being her kind and gentle self. She was even forced to grow up in order for the plot to advance. Hikaru grows from a cynical DefrostingIceQueen to a happier, more hopeful Pikachu thanks to [[ThePowerOfFriendship Sylvia's kindness.]] Bolt goes from a BrattyHalfPint / {{Jerkass}} who [[BigBrotherBully picks on his siblings]] to a kind, gentle father and a loving, faithful husband. Serena starts off as a severely autistic eight-year-old. By the end of the story, she's twelve, can talk just like any other person her age, and has won the Unova League.]]
* [[ClingyJealousGirl Clingy Jealous Guy]]: Dilandau. He won't let anyone near Nicodemus, convinced that they're all going to take him away from him. [[spoiler: Given what he went through, is it really all that surprising?]]
* CowardlyLion: Konoha, Yuki when he's young.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Hikaru, Dilandau, and Nicodemus. And to a lesser extent, Sylvia's father.
* DefrostingIceQueen: Hikaru. She starts off anti-social, not intent on interacting with anyone, but Sylvia's kindness helps her come out of her shell and show her who she really is.

* DontYouDarePityMe: [[spoiler: Vapor, after he TookALevelInJerkass, completing his FaceHeelTurn.]]
* EarnYourHappyEnding: [[spoiler: Hikaru and Sylvia.]]
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Bolt making fun of Sylvia and Bambi [[spoiler:(at least, for his child self)]], Lucretia calling him out on it, Dilandau setting Chargestone Cave on fire off-screen...
* FaceHeelTurn: Alseides, and later [[spoiler:Vapor. Alseides may have recovered later, but Vapor certainly didn't.]]
* ForWantOfANail: If Sylvia had saved Bolt, he probably wouldn't have [[spoiler:started a family]].
* GoodAllAlong: [[spoiler: Leonard (Bolt's trainer).]]
* HairTriggerTemper: Dilandau. Hikaru has minor shades of it.
* HatesBeingAlone: Take a guess.
* HeroicBSOD
* HeroicSacrifice: Claudia [[spoiler:and later Nicodemeus]] allow themselves to be taken in order to let Sylvia escape from her situation. Claudia lets herself be captured by the Kalosian researchers, [[spoiler:while Nicodemeus allows himself to get killed by poachers to stop Sylvia and Dilandau from dying as well.]]
* {{Homage}}: To ''Manga/KotouraSan'', or to be precise its ending theme ''the Flower of Hope''. In chapter 5, entire (very long) lyrics to the song was reproduced which apparently touched Sylvia.
* IllGirl: Desaline[[spoiler:, Sylvia's first "official" trainer.]]
* IronicNickname: Vapor winds up possessing one when [[spoiler:he becomes a Jolteon as opposed to the Vaporeon he dreamed of becoming.]]
* ItsAllMyFault:
** Sylvia has never forgiven herself for letting Katie jump off Skyarrow Bridge. She tried her hardest, and as Serperior said, [[DrivenToSuicide Katie probably would have tried to kill herself again later]], but Sylvia wanted to try and help her. [[spoiler: This ties in with what she eventually wants to do later: to comfort those like Katie in future.]]
** When Bolt is captured, Alseides blames Sylvia for it since she saw it happen, and she later believes it really was her fault. [[spoiler: When Sylvia says this to Bolt, he thinks she is bluffing, and admits it was his own fault.]]
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: [[spoiler:Dilandau.]] When we are first told about him, he is described as a monster, and when we eventually meet him, he is in the process of destroying a cave and a forest, the homes of countless Pokemon. [[spoiler: And then we learn why he's like this from Nicodemus. Because of unethical experiments performed on him against his will, his psyche is so utterly destroyed that he can never be fixed. His heart may be in the right place, but his mind will never follow...]]
* KillItWithFire: Dilandau.
* LackOfEmpathy: Dilandau.
* LeaveYourQuestTest: Nearly every trainer and/or Pokemon Sylvia meets offers one of these, for one reason or another. Sylvia doesn't leave her quest, though, as the entire point of returning home ''was to choose what exactly she wanted''.
* MonsterIsAMommy: Claudia. [[spoiler: We never know if she ever returns to her children or not, due to her being captured by the Kalosian researchers.]]
* OrwellianRetcon: Moondancer's nickname was originally Moonie, as a reference to early 90s ''Manga/SailorMoon'' [[PeripheryDemographic fans]]. But after the UnfortunateImplications were pointed out, she changed it to Dancer.
* PhraseCatcher: Many people of Flocessy Ranch will say that Sylveon was 'tailor-made' for Sylvia, as it not only matches her personality, but her name as well.
* {{Planimal}}: [[spoiler: Konoha.]]
* PluckyGirl: Sylvia.
* {{Pun}}: [[spoiler:Chapter 11: A Bolt of Thunder. Guess who is the focus of the first two-thirds of the chapter]].
* PunctuatedForEmphasis:
--> Dilandau: ''TAKE! IT! BAAACK!''
* [[spoiler: ReplacementGoldfish: Sylvia is horrified when she discovers Dilandau latches onto her to replace Nicodemus after the latter dies, which essentially means being his punching bag.]]
* ShoutOut: Many. The 'Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime and games, ''Anime/TheVisionOfEscaflowne'', ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'', ''Franchise/SailorMoon'', ''Literature/BlackBeauty'', just to name a few.
* ScissorsCutsRock: Dilandau is able to set fire to a cave. While the inhabitants of the cave [[ColdIron may be weak to Fire attacks]], the cave itself isn't.
* ShrinkingViolet: Bambi, Sylvia's friend. [[spoiler: Before he evolves.]]
* ThatCameOutWrong: Polly the Porygon states that her trainer, Desaline, needs to die now. Upon the outrage from all of the other Pokemon, Polly elaborates that [[MercyKill it is better to die sooner than to continue living with a fatal health condition.]]
* TheSociopath: Dilandau.
* TookALevelInBadass: Sylvia. She starts off unable to properly battle, but lots of training both in the Kalos research lab and on her journey helped her grow stronger, both physically and mentally, to the point where she manages to defeat various strong Pokemon [[spoiler:including Moondancer]] in battle. She's even ''forced'' to do so in order for the story to advance!
* TookALevelInJerkass: [[spoiler: Vapor and Alseides, the latter in a much crueler and more volatile fashion.]]
* TookALevelInKindness: [[spoiler: Bolt and Moondancer.]]
* UngratefulBastard: Sylvia saves Alseides from a man who was beating him up, and he only continues to attack her.
* UnusualEuphemism:
** ''No one gives a Hoothoot about me.''
** ''[Dilandau] didn't give a flying Farfetch'd about whether his fun would hurt or even kill other people or Pokémon.''
* UsedToBeASweetKid: [[spoiler: Dilandau, Vapor.]]
* VerbalTic: The Jol[[FunWithHomophones tik]].
* WideEyedIdealist: Sylvia understandably comes off as this for the most part since she starts the series very young. [[spoiler: Some not so nice characters call her out on this or mistake it as her trying to be a WhiteKnight.]]
* WouldHitAGirl: Dilandau outright attacks Sylvia at various points in the story due to [[TastesLikeDiabetes her cute appearance]] and [[CrazyJealousGuy the belief that she's trying to take Nicodemus from him]], which isn't true.
