Fanfic / Harry Potter: Pokémon Master

Go To

Welcome to the Avalon Region. Here, children go to Hogwarts, the premiere school for inspiring trainers, where they learn how to train Pokémon. This year promises to be special, for Harry Potter, the destroyer of Voldemort, is coming to take his place among the future trainers and begin his Pokémon Journey.

A Fusion Fic crossover series between Harry Potter and Pokémon, written by Mr. Chaos and published at Fanfiction Dot Net. It currently consists of:


This series contains examples of:

    open/close all folders 

  • Pretty much every Pokémon trope (Com Mons, Olympus Mons).
  • Adaptational Heroism:
    • People believed Peter Pettigrew was the one who betrayed the Potters to Voldemort, and that Sirius died killing him. This story reveals that Peter was not only not a traitor, but instead died heroically trying to bring down the actual traitor, Regulus Black.
    • Severus Snape was never part of Voldemort's Team Nocturne.
    • Tobias Snape was not an abusive father/husband, but a loving, while stern, man who not only took good care of Severus, but also adopted Lily Evans.
    • Barty Crouch Jr. is one of the heroes, helping save Harry and Jasmine after the last task. He is also the Nocturne double agent instead of Snape and, as a Shout-Out to David Tennant playing him in the movie, he is also Looker.
    • Barty Crouch Sr made sure to take care of his son, being there for him as much as possible, without falling into the trap of being Married to the Job. Barty Crouch Jr. mentions this was a great influence in his upbringing.
    • Abraxas Malfoy, who in canon was one of Voldemort's earliest followers and a pureblood supremacist, was here a powerful, yet benevolent man who had no issue with his daughter being in an homosexual relationship and opposed his son's intention to take the family into the "old family" supremacism spouted by Voldemort and Team Nocturne.
    • Similarly, Orion Black, Sirius' father, who was too a early Voldemort supporter in the books, was here the one who protected Sirius, helped him escape to the Potters' when tensions got too high at House Black and named him his heir.
  • Adaptational Villainy: There are several along the story.
    • Book!Cho Chang was a nice, gentle girl whose most negative qualities were being too clingy and supporting her friend after she betrayed Dumbledore's Army. In Chamber of the Unown, she is an Alpha Bitch that leads a pack of girls into stealing Luna's belongings and willingly becomes Voldemort's host.
    • Book!Lockhart was just an cowardly idiot who used a memory-wiping charm to take credit for other people's actions. Here, he manipulates Hermione and other of his fans so they will do his job for him, using his Hypno to wipe their memories whenever they realized what he was doing, and was all too willing to destroy the entrance to the Chamber of the Unown even though it contained the one thing that could revive those people who were petrified.
    • Book!Regulus Black was a misguided man who realized too late he was getting himself in a big mess and sacrificed himself to find a way to destroy Voldemort. Here, he was the one that told Voldemort where the Potters were hiding, killed Peter Pettigrew and framed Sirius so he would be sent to Sevii - the Azkaban equivalent.
    • To contrast with Barty Crouch Jr.'s Adaptational Heroism, Mad-Eye Moody becomes Voldemort's new host.
  • Animorphism: A Pokemagnus is capable of joining with one of their Pokémon, although it requires heavy training and can be incredibly dangerous.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Whenever Luna makes a way too outrageous comment, someone will either give her something or point something out to her to distract her.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Remus is a laid-back man, calm and easy to make friends with. If you anger him... well, that's when he shows his inner Zoroark.
  • Big Bad: Voldemort.
  • Bloodier and Gorier: As fights are more physical than in canon, people get worse injuries, and deaths tend to be a lot worse. This picks up when Jack enters the story.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Luna and Jack. Luna loves making pop culture references but this is due to her untamed Veela powers; making people laugh is the only way for her to handle the world around her and if she loses control she can become deadly. Jack, meanwhile, is this to his friends and those who know him beyond his legacy as a revolutionary.
  • The Chosen One: Harry is destined to defeat Voldemort even in this world.
    • Jack fights against his status as the Chosen One of his generation tooth and nail, with less than stellar results.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Luna is this in at least five different ways.
    • Her father is this in at least eleven different ways.
  • Expy: The different nations in the Pokémon world. Kanto is Japan, Johto is Ireland, Hoenn is Italy, Sinnoh is Bulgaria, Unova is America (with Alola representing Hawaii), Kalos is France, and Avalon is Britain. There is also mention of a New Zealand Expy.
  • For Want of a Nail: Many.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Ron is a prodigy in the art of making all kinds of Pokéballs, although, much to Hermione's distress, he is not so good at explaining how he does it.
  • Generation Xerox: The Pride (Harry, Ron, Hermione, Neville, Ginny, and Luna) are quickly becoming this to The Marauders (this time made up of James, Sirius, Remus, Peter, Lily, and Snape) and The Pack (Jack, Lance, Jonas, Clair, Cynthia, and Diantha).
    • Jack and Luna, oddly enough. Both are the pop culture junkies who are trained in one of the ancient arts and who are/will be the masters of their chosen art.
  • Good Is Not Soft: Definitely applies to the Pack.
  • Grand Theft Me: How Voldemort survives. He first took over Tom Riddle, and during the current storyline he does the same to Quirrell, Cho Chang and Alastor Moody.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Never mind his protestations against it, it is obvious that Draco Malfoy is jealous of Harry.
  • Happily Adopted: Harry by Remus, Jasmine by Jack and Clair.
  • Hold Your Hippogriffs: Pokémon replace animals in sayings.
  • Impossibly Tacky Clothes: Dumbledore likes to wear Alolan (Hawaii's Expy) shirts under his lab coats.
  • In Spite of a Nail: Many.
    • Neville's parents were still tortured until they lost their minds.
    • Sirius still ran away from home and got sent to prison after being framed up.
    • Fudge is still a corrupt man in Lucius Malfoy's pocket.
    • Umbridge is still the horrendous (Seismi)toad-like pink-wearing woman who derides anyone that does not fit her narrow standards.
    • Cormac McLaggen is again the representation of Gryffindor's worst characteristics.
    • Voldemort tricks Harry into going to the Ministry - which leads to several deaths.
  • Just Smile and Nod: what everyone eventually learns to do when around Luna.
  • Lampshade Hanging: Various characters bring up actions from either Harry Potter or Pokemon that don't happen in this 'verse, as well as addressing cliches when they pop up (dark type Pokemon being stereotypically "evil" being one example).
  • Loophole Abuse: Harry likes to think outside of the box.
    • During his first Gauntlet match, he averts Flint's Graveler by clinging to the cloth in the ceiling - which is within the rules, since he's not ripping it.
    • Several times at class, he sticks to the letter of the assignments while fulfilling the tasks in an unexpected way.
    • In the Grand Trainer Tournament's Second Task, which is about climbing while trying to keep the First Task's egg as untouched as possible with the aid of a Pokémon, all the other trainers send out a Pokémon to climb with them. Harry sends Ludwig to hover behind him, ensuring the egg won't even touch the wall.
  • Mythology Gag: several.
    • Harry joins Gryffindor's sports team in his first year.
    • Harry thinks Snape is behind the legendary object hid in Hogwarts during Book 1.
    • The person who betrayed the Potters hid as Scabbers.
    • Hermione gets a secret something that allows her to time travel, which she calls Time Turner.
    • MissingNo is a result of Team Rocket's genetic experiments.
  • Papa Wolf: Remus and Jack for their respective adopted children:
    • When Lockhart wraps an arm around Harry without permission and tries to use him in a photo-op, Remus grabs him by the throat and makes it clear what he will do if he ever touches his adopted son again.
    • When Jasmine's parents died Jack swore to her birth father he'd raise her as his own. Later, when he asked the little girl what she wanted she whispered she wanted Kanto to hurt. Jack declared war on Kanto the next day, forming a rebellion that would eventually kill half of the Kanto Elite 4, destroy their Pokémon league, and secure Johto's freedom. All because Kanto made his daughter cry.
      • At the end of the Fourth Book many of the Nocturne grunts were captured by the arriving police forces that arrived. Things look like they are calming down... til Jack sees that Jasmine was struck in the back of the head hard enough to bleed by the Carrows. He brutally murders the brother and sister and then orders the Johto Officers to kill all the prisoners before declaring war of Voldemort.
      • When Jasmine was 10 years old some criminals kidnapped her and Fleur, hoping to hold them for ransom. They didn't even get a chance to make the call before Jack burst in and, in Jasmine's own words, he "just let go". He proceeded to brutally tear the men apart so that by the end he was coated in blood.
      • Pretty much hurting Jasmine in any way will hit Jack's Berserk Button.
  • Playful Hacker: Ginny. She is shown several times at using her dex to hack into different systems. At the end of Book 4, it is revealed she managed to steal 10 million pokédollars from the Josephs' bank (and returned it), and Book 5 has her intern in Gringotts, where she hijacks the alerts before going to meet with Harry.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Togepi. At the beginning of Harry's second year, she even gets a small pair of pom-poms to cheer on Harry.
  • Running Gag: Luna makes a pop culture reference - sometimes one to stories that no one In-Universe knows about.
  • Shout-Out: Luna is a veritable fountain of these.
  • You Are Not Alone: One of the overarching messages in the story is that Harry has a large network of friends and allies he can rely on to fight Voldemort.
  • Your Terrorists Are Our Freedom Fighters: To Kanto and later Avalon's government, the Sons of Johto are dangerous terrorists. To Johto, they are the people that led the revolution that freed them from Kanto's increasingly authoritarian control over them.

    Harry Potter and the Master's Ball 
  • Abusive Parents: Vernon and Petunia, much like in canon, heavily abuse Harry, thinking it will make him unable to become a 'freak'.
  • Batman Gambit: Ron pulls one on Draco Malfoy so he can get a particular Pokémon.
  • Cuddle Bug: Togepi. Little girl cannot get enough hugs from Harry.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Hermione points out to Ron (who thinks the opposite trope is true) that Dark Pokémon should probably be called Trickster Pokémon, since they favor sneaky attacks.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: Harry sees a lot of his younger self in Togepi, because she lost her parents the same way Harry lost his.
  • Hidden Elf Village: Inverted. Little Surrey is an island where those who do not like Pokémon in their lives can live.
  • Hypocritical Humor: During the target-breaking Battling lesson, it's pointed out that Draco and the Slytherins were straightforwardly using attacks on the targets like a Gryffindor, and Harry was using Exact Words to have Eevee knock over the target instead, like a Slytherin.

    Harry Potter and the Chamber of the Unown 
  • Adaptational Badass: Harry. Yes, this needed to be hidden, because not only is he a true heir of Slytherin in this universe, he also inherited from Lily the controversial and long-lost art of Speaking.
  • And This Is for...: Neville destroys the stone that allows Voldemort to possess Cho while screaming about him doing it for his family, for his friends, and then for himself.
  • Beware the Cute Ones/Beware the Nice Ones: During the Honor Battle between Harry, Neville, Cho and Marietta, Togepi gets in the fight before Harry can send Emolga, and nearly everyone else laughs. Then Togepi and Bulbasaur evolve, and suddenly the ones laughing are Togetic and Ivysaur.
  • Big Damn Heroes: The Pokéball of the Sword of Gryffindor, a Cobalion, appears in Harry's hand just in time to help him stop Zygarde and defeat Voldemort.
  • Chekhov's Gag: Luna (who claims to speak Baby) said that Togepi called itself Dark Queen of Evil. When Harry Speaks with Togetic (Togepi's evolution) present, she calls herself Dark Queen of Evil - and Harry the Provider of Hugs.
  • Chekhov's Gun: Ron accidentally giving Harry his Magikarp and Harry giving him Emolga sets up Harry tricking Lucius Malfoy into accepting a trade, giving him the Magikarp (instead of Zygarde) in exchange of Dobby.
    • Poppy tells Ron that the Magikarp he captured has Everstones all over its scales, which, barring a very unlikely event, will prevent it from ever evolving. After Harry gives the Magikarp to Lucius Malfoy and the latter sets it free, the rage the Magikarp feels at being rejected and kicked around by Draco Malfoy lets it break through the Everstones' effect, triggering its evolution into Gyarados.
  • Classy Cane: Lucius Malfoy uses one. Harry has him hand it over to Luna as part of the Pokémon trade they make after the debacle at the Chamber of the Unown.
  • Determinator: Neville manages to power through several heavy injuries, including an almost point-blank C4 explosion, to destroy the stone that allows Voldemort to possess Cho.
  • Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu?: Harry mocks Voldemort for writing a diary. The fact that it is currently possessing Cho Chang makes it funnier, as she reacts like a stereotypical young girl.
  • Epic Fail: According to Flitwick, Lockhart, during his time at Hogwarts, somehow got his own Mankey to beat him, with said Mankey finishing the humilliation by throwing a Pokéball at him.
  • Et Tu, Brute?: Hermione steals Harry's Pokémons and gives them to Lockhart when Harry is about to attack the older man in the aftermath of his revelation that he knew where the Chamber of Secret was but never did anything about it.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: During his monologue as he prepares to destroy the entrance to the Chamber of the Unown, Lockhart mentions that, while he did take advantage of the star-struck students to make them do his work for him, he never even considered forcing them.
  • Exact Words: Harry told Malfoy he would trade him a Pokémon in exchange for Dobby (who is a Kadabra in the story). He never said that he would be handing over his recently caught Zygarde.
  • Foreshadowing: When Harry first does his Speaking in the presence of his Pokémon, he notices that Ludwig (his Litwick) sounds a lot like Severus Snape, setting up the reveal in Lord of Sevii that Ludwig is the child of Snape's Chandlure, and that it was Snape that gifted Ludwig to him.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Zygarde, although that's mostly because Voldemort was using its Pokéball to force it to carry out evil acts.
  • Heroic RRoD: Harry's Speaking during the battle with Zygarde causes him to heavily bleed from ears, mouth and nose. This is later revealed to be because Zygarde was fighting him off.
  • Irony: In the books, Harry was thought to be Slytherin's heir on account of speaking Parseltongue, but this was because Voldemort's actions accidentally gave him that power. Here, Harry is Slytherin's heir, and his Speaking ability is something he inherited via his mother, who was Tom Riddle's cousin.
    • Harry feels disgusted at the idea of being with Cho Chang.
  • Magikarp Power: The Trope Namer gets captured by Ron, who gets depressed when he learns that the Magikarp won't be able to evolve. Then he does evolve... much to the Malfoy's dislike.
  • Million-to-One Chance: Nurse Joy tells Ron his Magikarp has Everstones embedded under his scales, so he has a 1000-to-1 odds of being able to evolve. After Harry trades that Magikarp to Lucius Malfoy and the latter frees and mistreats him, the Magikarp manages to break the Everstones through sheer rage and evolves into Gyarados.
  • Mythology Gag:
    • Mrs Norris is the first to be attacked by Slytherin's Beast.
    • Harry, Hermione and Ron believe Draco Malfoy knows about Slytherin's Heir and the Chamber.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Hermione's blind faith in authority (particularly Lockhart) leads her to betray Harry at a critical moment, which almost leads to Harry, Neville and Luna dying and all those who were petrified being left in that state.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain: Lucius Malfoy's greedy attempt to get Zygarde from Harry not only loses him Dobby - which becomes a very powerful Alakazam thanks to this - and keeps Zygarde as Harry's Pokémon - as Harry made him swear an oath that he would not allow Zygarde to change hands - but also leads to him being tricked into getting a Magikarp which he later frees and mistreats, causing him to become a Gyarados out of sheer rage and destroy a good part of Malfoy Manor before eventually returning to Ron and becoming his once more.
  • Oh, Crap!: The Malfoys when Magikarp evolves into Gyarados.
  • Retcon: Remus tells Harry that his parents, Sirius and himself were once part of a group called "The Order of Moltres", but one of Book 5's subplots is Harry not knowing what's the Order of Moltres. When the Plot Hole was pointed out, the earlier reference was eliminated.
  • Running Gag: Ron's Magikarp trying to kill itself. Of course, it becomes less funny when it turns out he is doing it because he cannot evolve.
  • Wham Episode: Chapter 18. Draco Malfoy and Pansy Parkinson are attacked by Slytherin's Beast. It's the point where people realize no one is safe from it.
  • Wham Line: A number of lines that made readers realize things were quite different than expected.

    Harry Potter and the Lord of Sevii 
  • Call-Back: When Harry fights the Traitor in Le Fay's Landing, he lays on a trap for him and his Dusknoirs and tells him he knows where he is standing just before springing the trap. When he is on the top of the Astronomy Tower, with the Dusknoir Control Ball, cornered by Regulus Black, he repeats the same line before throwing the Ball out of the window.
  • Chekhov's Gun: Some of Hermione's actions point to her somehow knowing certain events are going to happen. See Mental Time Travel to see why.
  • Chekhov's Skill: Celebi's Time Turner ability proves critical to save the day after Everyone Dies.
  • Easily Forgiven: Zigzagged with Hermione's actions at the end of the previous story. Luna forgives her almost instantly, but it takes Harry several months to get through it.
  • 11th-Hour Superpower: Harry manages to achieve his Pokémagnus ability and merges with Hedwig, becoming a Noctowl and saving Hermione, after Regulus Black throws them off of Hogwarts' Astronomy Tower.
  • Hidden Depths: Hagrid's a Pokémon Coordinator and starts teaching a class about Pokémon contests.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: During the Gryffindor-Slytherin Gauntlet match, the Slytherins activate several traps expecting Harry to fall in them, only for Draco to be the one falling in them.
    • To avoid the madness of using the DNA Splicer too much, Regulus kept to his Raticate form non-stop. Unfortunately, that leaves him with a fear of predators like Noctowls and Sevipers - which leaves paralyzed in fear when he tries to run away after his cover is blown.
  • I Did What I Had to Do: Defied by Sirius. During his chat with Harry and Tonks, he mentions that everything he did while part of the Sons of Johto, he could have averted by simply walking away, but he never did.
  • I Need a Freaking Drink: When McGonagall finds Sirius, Tonks and Harry in her office, she pulls out a whiskey bottle and pours herself (and Sirius and Tonks) a drink.
  • Irony: In the books, people thought Sirius Black betrayed the Potters, but it was Peter who did it. Here, people think Peter betrayed the Potters, but it was Regulus Black.
  • Like Brother and Sister: Snape reveals that this was the sort of relationship he had with Lily.
  • Mental Time Travel: Hermione's Celebi allows her and anyone else she wants to go one hour back in time to fix things.
  • Never My Fault: Regulus blames James Potter for driving a wedge between him and Sirius, when in reality Sirius repeatedly tried to build bridges with Regulus and attempted to bring him into his group of friends, only for Regulus to rebuff him.
  • The Reveal: Sirius did not die, as believed by the general public.
    • Regulus Black is not only alive, but also told Voldemort where the Potters were, killed Peter, arranged for Sirius to be sent to prison and ensured Harry was forced to stay at Little Surrey.
    • Lily was Severus' sister in all but blood, and Ludwig is the child of their Chandlures.
  • Set Right What Once Went Wrong: When the encounter with Regulus Black goes completely apeshit wrong (Hogwarts is destroyed, most of its inhabitants die under the Dusknoirs' attack, and the only survivors are Harry, Hermione, Ginny, Luna's Sudowoodo and Tonks), Celebi uses its Time Turner ability to send the five of them one hour back in time so they can stop Regulus Black.
  • Take That!: Many of Regulus' complaints are taken from negative reviews of the story.

    Harry Potter and the Grand Trainer Tournament 
  • Actual Pacifist: Dumbledore is one. Having to fight against Grindlewald turned him so much off war that he overcompensated in later times with a "forgive-and-forget" policy that allowed Voldemort's followers to get off lightly with their actions during the war.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Greyback slices Harry's hand away during the climax. He gets a prosthetic that keeps his Pokéballs in and also has an emergency, one-shot low-powered blaster.
  • Androcles' Lion/Because You Were Nice to Me: It is stated that Gyarados helps Ron and the others because Ron took great care of him even when he believed Magikarp would never evolve.
  • Big Damn Kiss: Harry kisses Jasmine during the Solstice Ball.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Gyarados comes to save Ron and some of the others when the World Gauntlet Tournament is attacked by Team Nocturne. He also helps the Champions when they are attacked during the second task.
    • Chapter 32. Barty's surprise entry and reveal to actually be Looker followed by the arrival of the Professors, Gym Leaders, Headmasters, the parents of Hermione, Xeno Lovegood, Augusta Longbottom, Remus, Sirius, the Pack and an assortment of Police Officers.
  • Body Horror: Voldemort's possession of people is described as this, with the Spiritomb's face appearing somewhere on their body, usually on their torso.
  • Broken Pedestal: After Harry decides to participate in the Grand Trainer Tournament, Professor McGonagall gives Harry the cold shoulder. This makes Harry lose most of the respect he has for her (although it had been eroded in past years), and when she realizes her mistake Harry isn't exactly keen on forgiving her - and neither does a good part of his class group.
  • The Bus Came Back: More than a book after he was last seen, the Gyarados that evolved from Ron's Magikarp returns and agrees to once more become Ron's Pokémon.
  • Chekhov's Gun: After the World Cup attack, Jack gives Harry an extra for his Dex so he can exchange Pokémons in any point. During the climax, Harry uses this feature to get Zygarde without Voldemort noticing.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Jack killing Amycus and Alecto Carrow. The former gets kneecapped and has his arms broken at the elbow, then he stabs Alecto with a knife into the brain through her chin, and finishes it by slicing Amycus' gut open.
  • Culture Clash: While most of the other schools stay in their ships or at Hogwarts the Johtoians take over one of the Forbidden Islands. When Harry visits he finds them having a massive party complete with a band and many of them having bare chested wrestling matches. Jasmine happily welcomes Harry "to the dark side".
  • For Want of a Nail: The Johto-Kanto war may have been averted, if not for Oroku Koga twitching during the Johto protests, which the Kanto Elite Guard believed was an order to attack. This led to the Pokémon League Massacre that killed 47 Johtoian protestors, including Jasmine's parents, and caused Jack Kenway to break off his friendship with Lance Blackthorn and create the Sons of Johto.
  • Foreshadowing: When Jack and Harry talk the first morning after Olivine's arrival to Hogwarts for the Tournament, Jack points out that Avalonians have lost a lot of knowledge about their myths, putting Merlin's fight against the spirits as an example, because no one knows why the spirits acted like they did or what happened with them after the fight. This sets up the reveal that the spirits were actually a Spiritomb that Merlin trapped in a stone... a Spiritomb called Voldemort.
  • Green Around the Gills: Remus gets incredibly seasick when he rides on a boat or ship.
  • Has Two Mommies: Fleur and Gabrielle Delacour are the genetical daughters of Cynthia and Diantha Delacour-Malfoy.
  • "Hey, You!" Haymaker: This is how Barty Crouch Jr. a.k.a. Looker makes his interruption - by punching Voldemort mid-gloating.
  • Kill 'Em All: Jack has all the Team Nocturne Agents that were captured in Little Hangleton killed by the Hoods.
  • Lampshade Hanging: Jasmine has a good laugh at the Nocturne Agents in the Battle of Ilex Forest who use Pokemon "a 5 year old would think was evil", a Mandibuzz and a Toxicroak. She comments they should have plastered goatees on them.
  • Mythology Gag: Even with obvious proof staring him in the face, Fudge will not budge and admit that Voldemort has returned.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain: Voldemort's return manages to do what was believed impossible: his actions led to Jack Kenway and Lance Blackthorn actually making peace and reforging their friendship.
    • At the start of Book 4 Voldemort is able to operate in the shadows with only Harry and a passive Avalon in his way. Then he attacks Jasmine Kenway... twice. Book's end sees Jack declare war on Voldemort and Johto moving to oppose Team Nocturne while representatives from Kalos and Unova back them up.
  • Offscreen Teleportation: Luna somehow manages to teleport from her seat in the stands during the Second Task to the Bravairy Jack is flying with. And then back. With no one noticing.
  • Oh, Crap!: Everybody when Jack uses his fully grown Tyrantrum as Harry's opponent in the first task.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: Draco Malfoy calls Fleur "the daughter of two dyke whores". Unfortunately for him, he does it in front of Jack Kenway and Lance Blackthorn, best friends of Fleur's mothers, godfathers to Fleur and his sister and two of the world's best Pokémon trainers.
  • Reconcile the Bitter Foes: Voldemort attacking Claire (Jack's wife and Lance's cousin) and Jasmine Kenway, combined with Harry requesting their help, helps Jack and Lance to mend their friendship.
  • Refuge in Audacity: Barty Crouch Jr. happily demands Voldemort's and Team Nocturne's surrender when he is all alone. Of course, Barty also knows that The Cavalry is just a few minutes behind, so he Holds The Floor long enough to bring in the rest of the team.
  • Schmuck Bait: This, combined with Deal with the Devil, is how Voldemort (who turns out to be a Spiritomb) operates. He offers his victims whatever they want, and he gives it to them - by possessing them and eventually eating their souls.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: It is revealed that Lucius Malfoy is this. The original Malfoy family is from Kalos, and Lucius was Abraxas Malfoy's second child, the eldest (and heir) being Cynthia. When he demanded to be named heir of the family, since he was the eldest son, his father Abraxas told him he would not, so he "disowned" his family and left for Avalon, where he used his family name and his part of the family money to make himself look important, and upon marrying Narcissa Black used her part of the Black fortune to continue trying to make himself look like the head of House Malfoy.
  • The Tease: Iris likes to tease Viktor Krum. He subsequently turns this on her, much to her shock.
  • Wham Episode: Chapter 32. Voldemort and Tom Riddle are actually different entities: the former is actually a Spiritomb, a Pokémon made of lost souls that Merlin defeated and kept in a stone, and which wants to claim everything. Tom Riddle was an admittedly ambitious Pokémon trainer who found the stone and got tricked into making a deal with Voldemort, which possessed him and ate his soul - which also happened to Quirrell, Cho Chang and Alastor Moody.

    Harry Potter and the Order of Moltres 
  • All Your Powers Combined: The way Harry fights is a mixture of that of all his mentors.
  • Ascended Fanon: Harry calls Umbridge "Umbitch".
  • Asshole Victim: Each and every one of the Team Nocturne agents and admins that get killed.
  • Bad Boss: Draco treats his Pokémon with little respect, insulting them when they are unable to live up to his (unreasonable) demands.
  • Bait-and-Switch Comment: Remus makes a rhethorical question about whether they would believe a businessman or a deranged hobo - and interrupts Sirius by saying that, yes, they'd believe the hobo first (because of their experiences with the rich and powerful).
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: When Vegeta (Harry's Kommo-o) complains that Kong (Jonas' Primeape) is not fighting to his full potential after Jonas claims Kong is out, Harry demands that Jonas stop babying him and fight him with everything he has. Jonas proceeds to beat the crap out of Harry as Kong pretty much destroys Vegeta, pointing out to Harry that this is how he fights with everything he has.
  • Beat Them at Their Own Game: Harry's plan to deal with Umbridge is to have all of Gryffindor act like perfect students in her class - and take the fight outside the class, where her power is more limited.
  • Believing Their Own Lies: Draco thinks himself as an important person, a great Pokémon trainer and a leader, when the truth is that he barely ranks above "nuisance" for the ones that truly lead, makes several dumb mistakes during Pokémon fights and could not lead himself out of a paper bag without instructions.
    • Compounded during the Honor Battle. Harry clearly tricked him into it (in fact Malfoy didn't even get a word into the challenge) but Draco tells himself he issued the challenge. He's unable to see that most of the school is supporting Harry. He also believes himself to be a great trainer and strategist, but nearly all of his Pokémon are gifts from his father and most of his strategies have been cribbed from his father's apprentices.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Harry towards Luna, as he glares at the Gryffindors admiring her.
  • Brain Bleach: Chapter 28 has quite a few requests for this: the adults to forget Luna's reaction to figuring out Ginny's Shout-Out, the kids to forget Jack taking off his shirt.
  • Broken Pedestal:
    • Harry's regard for Hogwarts' teachers (save, perhaps, for Snape) collapses completely when they are unwilling to do anything about Umbridge driving an eleven year old girl into killing herself.
    • Ron, Ginny and the twins lose a lot of respect for their parents after they let the Aurors set a trap for Jack, even after they knew he went to Tor Town to protect them.
  • Chekhov's Gun: During the Honor Battle against Draco Malfoy (where each of them can only use six Pokémon), after Orion (Harry's Empoleon) defeats Malfoy's Boldore, Harry recalls Orion. When Malfoy's Bruxish (his last Pokémon) manages to defeat Ludwig (Harry's sixth Pokémon), Harry just brings out Orion and wins the match.
  • The Cloud Cuckoo Lander Was Right: In chapter 15, Luna makes a surprisingly in-depth analysis of why Umbridge is the way she is.
  • Compensating for Something: In his article on Team Nocturne, Xeno states that its members can be identified by this.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death/Cruel Mercy: When Patrick Parkinson hides himself in his mansion's panic room, Jonas... chooses not to attempt to get in. Instead, he, Clair and Lance block the door to the panic room - so he cannot escape, and will eventually die of thirst.
  • Death by Adaptation: McGonagall, Flitwick and Sprout die during the battle at the Ministry.
  • Defensive "What?": Ron after saying that not all Slytherins are half bad.
  • Dirty Business: Jack infiltrates Avalon to kill all the Team Nocturne agents he can find in order to reduce Voldemort's power and make it harder for him to take over. Kingsley Shacklebolt kills a traitor Auror by smashing her head with a rock when it becomes obvious that, if he doesn't let her go, she will frame him and the other Aurors as Voldemort supporters.
  • The Dog Bites Back: Peony Parkinson decides to sell out her husband Patrick to the Sons of Johto when she gets fed up with his joining Team Nocturne and his cuckolding.
  • Double Take: It takes Ron's brain a while to realize his little sister likes to watch porn.
  • 11th-Hour Superpower: Dumbledore reveals he is the Last Aura Knight and unleashes his power when he realizes it is the only way to defeat Voldemort.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: Macnair cannot begin to understand why Jack is fighting in the war against Voldemort, and believes people who give a damn about others are weak.
    • Draco thinks that Harry is pathetic because he listens to Leafeon's opinion.
  • Failed a Spot Check: The Aurors remember too late that Harry's right hand is a prothesis - one with a blaster that allows him to destroy the glass separating him and his friends from the Aurors' office and begin their mission.
  • False Flag Operation: Team Nocturne attacks Little Surrey while disguised as the Sons of Johto, aiming at trying to break any international support the latter have.
  • Freudian Excuse: Umbridge is such a fanatic because her parents weren't "important" in terms of blood or social standing, and her abrassiveness and the backstabbing means by which she ascended in the Ministry ranks means she has no friends and no children, so all she has is her job and she clings to it because doing otherwise would mean admitting her own failures.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: As much as he would claim otherwise, it is obvious Draco Malfoy is jealous of Harry, because he has good friends and family and is better than him.
  • Head-in-the-Sand Management: One of Harry's biggest problems with Avalon and its government is that they choose to ignore how so many were willing members of Team Nocturne, instead going after people like Jack or Harry.
  • Heroic BSoD: Played for Laughs when Ginny makes a reference to The Mummy (1999) in Chapter 28 and Luna does not recognize it immediately, so she spends the entire chapter trying to figure it out and going even crazier as the others make more references but she cannot answer to them until she solves Ginny's.
  • Hidden Depths: Padma is much, much sneaker than she lets on at school, putting on a flawless impersonation of her sister that initially fools Harry. If what she says is to be believed, they're even better than the Weasley twins at moving around the school.
  • How We Got Here: Chapter 1 takes place at what appears to be the end of Harry's fifth school year. Chapter 2 takes the story back to the beginning of the previous summer.
  • I'll Take That as a Compliment: Jonas tells Ginny she's scarily powerful with a computer, and then clarifies it's not a compliment.
  • I Surrender, Suckers: In Chapter 1, Hermione points out to Umbridge she could have used Celebi's Mental Time Travel ability to ensure neither her nor her friends got arrested. A minute later, it is made obvious they let Umbridge arrest them so they could get into the Ministry with all of their gear - and take Umbridge out as an extra.
  • The Immodest Orgasm: Luna in Chapter 28 - after she finally figures out Ginny's Shout-Out (see Heroic BSoD). In front of the Pack, Sirius and Remus. And even invoking Smoking Hot Sex by pulling a candy cigarrette. The adults promptly end their side of the call.
  • Irony: When Harry and Draco are going to send their last Pokémons out, Draco thinks that it will be great to defeat Harry by letting him taste victory only to snatch it in the last second. Draco's Pokémon wins that battle, and just as he begins to gloat, Harry brings out Orion (which he had pulled out, still conscious, after the first combat, and is thus available for combat) and snatches victory from Malfoy in the last second.
  • It's All About Me: Draco Malfoy. Peony Parkinson.
  • It's All My Fault: Harry and Dumbledore blame themselves for the events at the Ministry.
  • It Is Beyond Saving: After the mess with Umbridge and Jack's attempted lynching, Harry is convinced that Avalon neither can nor deserves to be saved from Voldemort.
  • Jerkass: Cormac McLaggen. When Harry attempts to explain everyone how they can deal with Umbridge, Cormac calls him a coward and also tries to claim he isn't a true Gryffindor because he "cuddles up with foreigners and Slytherins" and is the Heir of Slytherin.
  • Kent Brockman News: Rita Skeeter's article in Chapter 26 is pretty much about putting in her personal biases and insulting everyone she can get away with. The only one that goes unscathed is Lucius Malfoy.
  • Likes Older Women: Brock hits on Professor McGonagall, who could be his grandmother. He's later seen hitting on Professor Hooch.
  • Mind Rape: Hermione, thanks to her training, can read people's minds. Luna's Veela powers allow her to do this to other people.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: In Chapters 30 and 31, Harry forms a team (dubbed 'Potter's Eleven') to investigate Stan Shunpike, and the information they find results in the Aurors making several arrests, including Stan. In Chapter 32, it's revealed that the Pack were aware of who he was, and had been planning to use him to infiltrate Team Nocturne.
    • Professors McGonagall and Dumbledore ensure Harry loses any vestige of respect for them when they punish him in the aftermath of him trying to seek justice over a young girl Umbridge drove into killing herself.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain: Had Auror Fanny O'Donald not decided to act as Jack's lawyer as part of her plan to blackmail the Aurors, Jack would have probably not heard her recording device and pointed at her as the traitor in the group, much less allowed him to Hold The Floor until the rest of the Pack arrived and rescued him.
  • "No. Just... No" Reaction: Umbridge is the kind of person that makes others curse their own parents for meeting because it puts them in her presence.
  • Oh, Crap!: Rosen and Guilden when they realize that Dolores Umbridge has just entered the detention block check-in. It becomes worse when they realize who she has arrested.
  • OOC Is Serious Business: When the Weasley twins hear Ron claim he doesn't mind working with some Slytherins (at least, those who are not giant assholes), they think the end of the world is nigh.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: Umbridge. Among other pearls, calls Lily a whore and tells Harry his father should have killed him.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Chapter 36 has Harry calling out Dumbledore and the Heads of House over how they rolled over when Umbridge bullied a girl so hard she tried to kill herself, yet they punish him when he was the only one that gave a damn about the girl.
    • Jack calls Rufus Scrimgeour and the Aurors out for their unwillingness to do anything about all the Team Nocture members who managed to avoid prison unscathed even though they were known to be horrible criminals, instead going after Jack after he killed several of the Nocturne grunts and agents.
  • Reluctant Ruler: Harry dislikes having to become House Gryffindor's leader, but he takes it up because he knows his fellow students need it.
  • Selective Obliviousness: Jack accuses the Aurors of doing this when they show themselves consciously ignorant of the atrocities committed by Team Nocturne's members.
  • She Is All Grown Up: The Gryffindor males note very much how Luna has, ahem, changed. Particularly as she does her flexibility training in the common room.
  • Sore Loser: Draco Malfoy screams that Harry cheated during the Honor Battle, when it's clear Harry just used what he had in hand to win fair and square.
  • Suicidal Pacifism: Dumbledore spent the entire first war against Team Nocturne preaching against doing anything beyond stunning the terrorists - and is unwilling to buck the trend when Voldemort comes back, even though it's obvious it doesn't work. This was caused by an attempt to overcompensate for the events of the war against Grindelwald: due to his powers as an Aura Knight, he could see the souls of his fellow Knights as they dissipated into death during the war, so during the fight against Nocturne he sought to save even the terrorists from dying - only for that to backfire when all it did was to prolong suffering and get even more people killed.
  • Super Senses: After doing the Long Talk with Leafeon for the first time, Harry gains a huge spike in his hearing ability, to the point he can hear the radio at the lowest volume setting.
  • Unsportsmanlike Gloating: When Draco's Braxus manages to defeat Harry's Ludwig, Draco begins to gloat, because he thinks he has won.
  • Vocal Dissonance: During the Chapter 28 holocast, Ginny's Deepfake program gives Jack the body of a centerfold model.
  • Wham Episode:
    • Chapter 37. Jack, who had been protecting Arthur, is captured by the Aurors and brutally beaten before Rufus reveals the Weasleys agreed to let them spring a trap on him. He then declares they are going to have a trial right there in the forest and WHEN Jack is found guilt... he doesn't finish but instead orders a noose be put around Jack's neck, with the final line in the chapter stating Jack is about to die all alone.
    • Chapter 41. Jasmine kills Narcissa Malfoy and makes it look like a suicide by hanging, clearly in revenge for what was nearly done to Jack.
    • Chapter 42. Voldemort has taken over Fudge and plans to kill the Hogwarts teachers.
    • Chapter 46. Voldemort uses his Espeon to force Harry to kill Professors McGonagall, Flitwick and Sprout.
    • Chapter 50. Jack and the Pack break off with Harry after Jack and Harry get in a brutal argument over Harry's actions.
  • Wham Line: After the Honor Battle, Hermione has something to say of what she has found about the Order from Professor Sprout.
    Hermione Granger: Harry... the Order... your parents were part of it... the Weasleys too... the Order... they were formed for one purpose.
    Harry Potter: What was that?
    Hermione Granger: To allow Voldemort control of Avalon.
  • What Does She See in Him?: People once wondered what Selene Lovegood (a Veela) saw in Xeno Lovegood.
  • Who Would Be Stupid Enough?: When Harry discusses how to find information on the Order of Moltres, his friends point out that he could get it from someone who probably knows, that has no compulsion to keep silent and that is dumb enough to fall for Harry's fishing. The story then cuts off to Harry tricking Draco Malfoy into an honor duel. In the end, though, the actual information they are looking for ends up coming from Professor Sprout.
  • World of Jerkass: The Avalon region is viewed as this by Harry as of Chapter 40.
