These are recommendations made by Tropers for Pokémon GO Fan Fics, all of which have to be signed to stay on the page. Feel free to add a fanfic of your own to the list, but remember to use the template found here. After a few samples, you will be able to judge whether you might be interested in the 'fic, based on who recommended it. No-name recommendations will be zapped. Nobody would back up the rec. Discussion of the recommendation is welcome on the discussion page. As such discussion is important, do remember to add the discussion page to the watchlist, if need be.


Do warn when a fanfic may head into sexualnote  or non-canon territory. Some people just don't like it, and as we all know, Shipping is Serious Business.

If you were looking for the fanfic with this title, see Pokémon Go! (J Ken).

Marked by nursehelena

  • Recommended by: ferristhewheel
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: Blanche, Candela, and Spark all bear the scars of accidents from their childhood. They're eerily similar, and elemental in nature: ice, fire, and lightning burns. A large force behind these encounters with legendary birds has brought them together. But, for what purpose?
  • Ships: Blanche/Candela
  • Comments: Well-written and updates frequently. Do keep in mind there is a time skip of about 50 years after Ash's journey.

And the World Will Turn To Ash by surfaçage

  • Recommended by: Edward Gil
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: A sequence of depictions of the three Team Leaders; as well as original character Noire; Blanche's Evil Twin in Team Rocket.
  • Ships: All combinations of the trio possible, but nothing explicit.
  • Comments: Gorgeous animated style and characterization packed into a few panels.

Nanashima Zero by Keleri (wintersheir)

  • Recommended by: Eriochrome Black
  • Status: Complete (One-Shot)
  • Synopsis: "When has accepting a secret invitation to someone’s island laboratory ever gone well?" Blanche, Candela, and Spark face off against scientists and security forces with ties to Team Rocket, and come face-to-face with other trainers (i.e. OCs) bonded to legendary birds.
  • Ships: None, Gen
  • Comments: A fun and satisfying one-shot with room to expand into a larger series. Some great banter and battles as well as (non-canon/fanon) brushstrokes hints at the leaders' pasts and how Team Rocket might function in the Pokemon Go world.

Roommates by Jali

  • Recommended by: Antique-Ferret
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: When the female protagonist finds herself in dire need of a new roommate, a local gym leader persuades her to accept his application. She thought he'd be an easy conquest. What she got instead was a new best friend and a lover with a bag of kinks. (Contains adult and explicit sexual situations, NSFW)
  • Ships: Spark and female OC, Candela and female OC, Candela and another female OC
  • Comments: "I found this by accident and read the whole thing in one sitting / I'm addicted!" seems to be a recurring theme in the comments. Most readers love the characterization -Spark's realness and the protag's relatability. I think the development of the world is really interesting. Jali seems to be turning it into a larger series, so definitely keep an eye on this!

How well does it match the trope?
