Pokemon Loud Version - Kanto by SilverNugget

  • Recommended by: qazsedc
  • Crossover with: The Loud House
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: No Such Luck AU. After being accused by Lynn of ruining her championship softball game, Lincoln's family plans to send him away to live with his Aunt Ruth until the whole 'bad luck' mess blows over. However, a suggestion by Lisa leads to a different destination that will change Lincoln's life forever. New 'M' Rating due to language & content within the story.
  • Comment: While starting as another NSL story, and bringing the worst in the Loud sisters, it's incredibly well written, and has the family slowly, but surly redeem themselves. It's also very detailed, and combines elements from the Pokemon games, anime, and even manga. As well as has a upcoming harem for our rookie trainer Lincoln, and doesn't rush or force the romance. The author also occasionally has on his latest chapters quizzes. In which whoever private messages the correct answer first, gets to pick nicknames for Lincoln's Pokemon, or what he'll get in wonder trades.

Infinity Train: Blossoming Trail by Green_Phantom_Queen

  • Recommended by: RacattackForce
  • Crossover With: Infinity Train
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: Chloe Cerise had enough of everyone telling her to have a job with Pokémon, of Goh ignoring her and focusing on Mew, his captures and Ash, of her father only caring for research and his "research fellows", and of Ash for being a black hole to suck everything in. When she decides to run away from home, she decides to take the first train out of Vermilion City... and into another world filled with endless possibilities and a green number on her right hand.
  • Tags: Pokémon Journey, Angst with a Happy Ending, Food as a Metaphor for Love, Running Away, Jealousy
  • Notes: I would have never thought of a Pokémon character as a candidate for the train, but the author makes a good case for Chloe fitting the profile this otherworldly locomotive looks for. The fic happened to start just before Episode 29 aired, so it takes a different direction with Chloe's character development even beyond the "an Eldritch Location kidnaps her and forces her to deal with her insecurities if she wants to leave" thing.

  • Tags: Humor, Parody
  • Comments: Worlds colliding in this hilarious parody. It might not be for the most sensitive (or Pokémon purists) due to its plentiful violence since no one stands on the path of DOOM!

Fist of the Pikachu by Hung Nguyen

  • Recommended by: Fox Bluereaver
  • Status: Dead (last update was in May 2003)
  • Crossover with: Ranma ½
  • Synopsis: Due to a technological accident in the Pokémon world, and a botched spell, Ranma Saotome gets pulled out of his own world shortly after separating from his father after receiving his curse. A fateful meeting with a strange electric rodent leads him to explore this new world and live adventures as he never imagined before...
  • Tags: Adventure
  • Comments: It's a shame this story was never continued. Without his father's negative influence, and having Pokémon to take care of, Ranma develops into a much more likeable character, and it's interesting how the author went for developing new customized attacks for Ranma's team, even to the point of getting two of them with a third evolution. Once he gets the female traveling companions, though, they can be somewhat annoying with their constant bickering for attention, but it's still a nice reading. Be mindful that this was written barely when Generation II had just come out, and that it takes a lot from the early seasons of the anime.


How well does it match the trope?
