YMMV / Sylvia the Sylveon

Go To

  • Alternative Character Interpretation: Alseides, post-Time Skip. Will he recover and get the psychological help he needs in order to heal, or is the damage so bad that he'll be an Ax-Crazy / Blood Knight / Jerkass / Broken Bird for the rest of his life?
  • Critical Research Failure: In the story, Sylvia evolves via an item, but it's confirmed that Eevee evolve into Sylveon via Pokemon-Amie and knowing a Fairy-type move. Justified in that the story began in February, and Sylveon's method of evolution wasn't revealed until October. The author admits this error in the story notes.

  • Heartwarming Moments: There are several of these, but Sylvia's reunion with Bolt takes the cake, primarily because of how nice he's become.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: In one chapter, Sylvia is severely weakened from getting attacked by a group of Venipede, and in another, she defeats Moondancer in battle. Both of these events were written before it was confirmed that Fairy types are strong against Dark types and weak against Poison types; it is even lampshaded in a later chapter.
    • Sylvia's first human friend , and her trainer at the end of the story, was named Serena (not the Pokemon X and Y character). Later, in the Pokemon XY anime, Serena catches an Eevee.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Hikaru at times, Dilandau, Vapor, Alseides.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Dilandau's crossed it since before he appeared by setting Chargestone Cave on fire, killing many Pokemon. He doesn't stop there.
  • One-Scene Wonder: N, who is not even referred to by name.
  • Tastes Like Diabetes: In-story, many not-so-nice characters Sylvia meets are disgusted by her cute appearance and have no problem telling her exactly this.
  • Tear Jerker: Again, several of these, the most notable one being when Sylvia's father dies.

  • The Woobie: Many characters.
