Alright, everyone, I assume you all are familiar with the process by now for those who are new, let me tell you how this will go down.
First, we will discuss the plot of the story; the things that are happening within the story, etc.
Second, we will move on to start rating the novel on multiple categories; furthermore explaining the pros and cons of this novel.
And finally, I will express my thoughts about the novel.
Let's start now; first and foremost, our main character's name is Alex. He is an OG character in the alternative world of pokemon, he is an orphan with an affiliation with Team Rocket.
There is a fairly well-described ranking system within the criminal organization and our MC starts at the very bottom of the food chain.
Alex (Author) has shown a high level of creativity while making the various details in the ranking system, he has also introduced a talent ranking system for pokemon which is described using a simple (SSS, SS, S, A) system.
The Mc currently has shown no interest in tackling gym owners and is solely focused on strengthening his team which is a good route in my opinion.
The Mc is not overpowered in any way and even has to struggle to move forward, he has fairly common pokemon on his team with fairly good potential ranking.
The pokemon on Alex (MC) team are not the best but very original and believable. The story starts sloppy and feels a bit out of pace but with each progressive chapter, the writing, and world-building improve, as of yet, it has reached a good level; shoutout to Jojo_Soni (Editor).
And believe me, when I say good, I am very critical while writing reviews; those who have read my previous reviews know that.
Back to the review, so as I was saying, the story starts off at a decent level with Mc having a decent personality, though a bit naive which isn't really a problem.
The budding attraction towards a girl (OG character) is also believable since our Mc is just a teenager though it did irritate me in the beginning.
Let me clarify that Mc is not an idiot neither a lovestruck fool, one of the reasons why I am willing to overlook his initial interaction with the girl.
Anyway, this story is more focused on the adventure aspect rather than romance which I like and support very much.
The Mc has his own struggles and is capable of losing which means the plot armor is well balanced given this development is a weak-to-strong type.
Alex (MC) is quite smart and a resourceful guy who's sole purpose is to become strong to increase his standing in the world, Alex (Author) has done a good job in expanding the world of pokemon by introducing more believable things in the story like the black market, murder, etc.
Currently, not OG pokemon protagonists are seen in the novel even though the side characters like Brock and Steven (Future Champion) are present in the novel.
Mc is ruthless well he needs to be but acts cautiously which I support. He doesn't trust anyone to a plausible level as of yet, not even the potential female lead which I also support. (Hell yeah!)
Anyway, so yeah I have explained the basic details of the plot without spoiling anything major, there are things I haven't added in the review because I don't want to spoil the plot for new readers.
Moving on, we need to discuss the stats.
The author releases a whole chapter which contains a proper schedule containing the release date of the upcoming chapters, I haven't seen anyone do this as of yet which is the reason why I am rating it so high!
The author is new to writing stuff but has a strong base, much better than when I started off with my own writing style. He has done a great job in introducing the world-building and other aspects but all of that needs more refining and detailing which can be done in the upcoming chapters.
You should expand more on the working of the various organization that you have introduced unless you want them to be a secret for now.
The Mc starts off ok, not too smart, not too stupid, not too naive, not too mature; rather well balanced I must say.
There are times when I want to smack him on the back of his head and there are times when I want to give him candy. (No, I am not a pedophile, Fuck off!)
Overall, I don't really have an opinion on his personality as of yet, I will wait and see how he grows.
Though I hope, you work more on his romantic side of the personality, it needs to be better defined.
The direction of the plot is good and well-paced but we have no idea about where is the plot heading to, like what does Mc want to achieve or what are his goals and plans to achieve his goals, this needs to be defined in the upcoming chapters as I would like to know what is he aiming for? He wants to become strong and leave Team rocket but what then? And how does he actually plan to leave Team Rocket?
But this also works in your favor as you can keep on fantasizing about various things that the Mc can do and it also gives the Author a much wider range of actions.
Finally, since we have finished the stats discussion, now it is time for my personal thoughts on this novel.
This novel has a very high potential to exceed the most popular pokemon novel on this platform, the only criticism I can do is that this gem needs a lot of polishing, both by Jojo_Soni (Editor) and Alex (Author).
The highly recommend this book and have even added this to my public collection known as "Legendary Novels", this is also the only pokemon novel I am actually interested in reading as of yet.
I have been following this novel since it had only 4 chapters and am very proud of my fellow author and Editor.
Even so, being as critical as I must be, I have explained all the stuff that needed to be explained.
Once again, shoutout to Jojo_Soni and Alex for presenting this site with such a wonderful and refreshing read.
Alright, this is it for now; you guys know the drill if I find a novel with good potential, I am always leaving a legendary review.
Peace and love~
