Seth in the Pokécity is a fanfiction series created by KalloFox34, focusing on Seth Anderson. Among him, his friends include Tim Tim Wilson, Misty Waterflower, Ash Ketchum and Seth's loyal Emolga, BoltShock.

A mostly episodic series, it heavily features Black Comedy, Cutaway Gags, sex jokes and political commentary.

It was able to be viewed here, on the same website as The Pokémon Squad and The Looney Scientists Show, though the rest of the series is being moved over to KalloFox34's DeviantArt.


Seth in the Pokécity provides examples of:

  • The Alcoholic: Ash is the best example here.
    • Seth and Tim Tim, to a lesser extent.
    • Flosshead, despite being a child in dinosaur years, loves beer and wine.
  • Alcohol-Induced Idiocy: One upcoming episode shows that Ash is intelligent when he's sober.
  • All Adult Animation Is South Park: A variant. 95% of the non-original characters come from either Western Animation, Anime or Video Games with cartoonist designs. The fic itself loves Black Comedy, Cutaway Gags, pop-culture references and sexual humor.
  • All Men Are Perverts: Most of the males on the show (most notably Vinny, Barney and Seth himself) are perverts to some extent.
  • Ambiguously Bi:
    • In "Save the Grotto", there is a scene where Vinny makes out with a cardboard cut-out of Chris Hemsworth, but is also a Dirty Kid known to hit on grown women.
    • Seth and Tim Tim share a lot of Ho Yay scenes, but are married to Misty and May, respectively.

  • Author Avatar: Seth, to some extent. Him and KalloFox34 are both liberal atheists who have the same taste in pop-culture. What sets him apart from other fanfiction examples is that he's a Butt-Monkey who does have his flaws (sarcasm, lack of a backbone, perversion, alcoholism, obsession with TV, etc.) that keep him out of Gary Stu territory.
  • Banned Episode: In-Universe example in "Bowlin' Again, Naturally". At the beginning of the episode, Seth and Tim Tim are watching a banned episode of Rugrats, where Tommy and Chuckie watch Lonely Space Vixens. The episode ends with Chuckie accidentally shooting Angelica after finding a gun concealed under his couch seat.
  • Blatant Lies: This gem from "Bowlin' Again, Naturally":
    Carter: "Seth? SETH! Wake up! You’re supposed to be inspecting the Poké Balls!"
    Seth: "I know, I know. I cut my eye yesterday and it's making it hard to keep my eyes open."
    Carter: "Really? How?"
    Seth: "I kinda got into a Bar Brawl at the Blotto Grotto."
  • Advertisement:
  • Brainy Brunette: Seth is usually this.
  • Butt-Monkey:
    • Seth is a frequent slapstick target, starting from "Save the Grotto".
    • Flosshead takes a lot of punishment to make up for his Jerkass behavior.
  • Does Not Like Men:
    • Officer Jenny hates men, frequently arresting Seth and Tim Tim over the slightest indiscretions, while granting Misty and May Karma Houdini status.
    • Ms. Barch is naturally this.
  • Expy:
  • Extreme Doormat:
    • Vinny, Flosshead's best friend/partner in crime. Even after the terrible things Flosshead does (or, rather, did, because Flosshead later became much less competent), Vinny forgives him routinely.
    • Seth himself is also an extreme doormat. While he sometimes gets angry at Misty, he usually forgives her. He also rarely stands up for Misty when Kay and Arnold pick on her.
  • Fiery Redhead: Tim Tim and Misty are good examples.
  • Flanderization: Done intentionally.
    • Seth was mostly a Nice Guy in earlier episodes, with only occasional bouts of snarkiness. By Season 4, he is planned to become just a male version of Lois Griffin.
    • Meanwhile, Tim Tim's short fuse is being slowly phased out in favor of a more perverted persona.
    • Flosshead was less evil early on. Later on, he's become a supreme Jerkass who goes out of his way to torment Tim Tim.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble:
  • Goldfish Poop Gang: Flosshead and Vinny are good examples later on, when the former became a petty Troll whose evil acts amount to nothing more than Poke the Poodle.
  • Greed: A lot of Flosshead's antics are fueled by money.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Tim Tim is actually a Nice Guy, but he's also very quick to anger.
  • Jerkass:
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold:
    • Seth tends to be either this or a regular Nice Guy. While he is a cynical Deadpan Snarker, he usually just wants the best for his friends and family.
    • Tim Tim has a Hair-Trigger Temper and shows similar Deadpan Snarker tendencies, but outside of those, he's really warm-hearted and polite.
    • Reko, though the jerk part is mostly from how Flosshead and Barney treat him.
  • Nice Guy:
    • Seth, though not without flaws, was cool-tempered, (usually) selfless and when he does something wrong, he will try to fix it.
    • Tim Tim is one of the only characters who doesn't abuse Seth, and is usually amiable until he's provoked.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Tim Tim gives a brutal one to Flosshead in "Trouble Date".
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis:
    • Flosshead's favorite target for pranks and cruelty is Tim Tim. In return, Tim Tim hates Flosshead the most out of the main cast.
  • Trademark Favorite Food:
    • Seth loves beer, soda, coffee, chocolate and pizza.
    • Tim Tim is very fond of donuts, except jelly-filled ones.
    • May has an obsession with ramen.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Seth and Tim Tim. They may constantly argue and snark at each other, but they're ultimately close-knit, sometimes to Ho Yay levels.

How well does it match the trope?
