1* AngstWhatAngst: Her husband ran off, just like her father had years ago, yet Delia doesn't seem to mind. It's mentioned that she no longer loves her husband, but she hasn't divorced him and turns down suitors.˛* FanficFuel: The books are considered an AlternateContinuity by most fans for a couple of reasons (tone, anime info conflicting with the info within, etc.) however it's still used as a source of ideas, especially concerning works that mention Ash's father, the family history of Delia and the Oak family, what Pallet Town is like, Ash's childhood, history of Pallet Town, and the state of the world at large.˛* HilariousInHindsight: There's a passage where a character, implied to be Professor Oak, waxes poetic about what might happen if various inanimate objects turned out to have Pokémon versions of themselves. Many of these examples now are actual Pokémon. The examples given are fighter jets (Latias and Latios), tanks and pistols (tenuously the Octillery line), swords (the Aegislash line), and dolls (Banette).˛* TooBleakStoppedCaring: Despite being written by Takeshi Shudo (whom many fans agree [[MyRealDaddy was the only top creative mind who wanted to do more]] than plug merchandise with [[StrictlyFormula an episodic formula]]), seeing his DarkerAndEdgier interpretation of the ''Pokémon'' world (in which, for example, Gym Leaders are disqualified for losing four times in a row and as such bribe challengers to lose for large amounts of money) can be rather off-putting for some, even those who enjoy the episodes and movies he wrote.˛* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: Has some pretty adult themes for a kid's book, namely children being legal adults at age ten, TeenPregnancy and adultery, Pikachu dying if using all of it's electricity, to name a few examples. Of course, this is Creator/TakeshiShudo we're talking about, who wanted the anime to be just as much for adults as for kids.˛----
