I am a legend, a bright star that gives off dazzling light that Pierce's through the darkness and always prevails ,I am the god ,the creator ,and lastly the AUTHOR. So behold my pen , bow down .
The story is slow-paced but every action has a reason, every action up until now has been to obtain certain information and knowledge, after all...Mc is also a single individual who is very cautious in nature. You will understand later when I finish writing the Competition arc.
Is it really important to choose the bleach world? Maybe you should try so another world like maybe Seven deadly sins, or some novel world even movies are okay.
"Sometimes I wish I had the power to intrude into another world, the things I could see and feel would have been so amazing. Alas! It is not possible, that is why we find escape in fiction because it is a place where as long as you have imagination, nothing is beyond you." —Legendary Person
I understand the need for character growth but this is not proving that Mc isn't invincible but rather it shows that Mc is a complete idiot contrary to his behavior in the previous chapters. The problem here is that the point you wanted to convey to the readers is poorly portrayed. You could have made him lose normally after all Misty is a gym leader but the decisions made by the Mc are just downright poorly written. This is constructive criticism, take it as you want to. The only reason why I am even bothering myself to list this is that your novel has lots of potentials and your writing style is quite good.
Anyone who had played Firered or Greenleaf will know what to expect, while surely Nidorana is not a bad choice, I don't see any reason for Gan to use her really. First, she has a level disadvantage; second, she doesn't have any long-range attacks; third, she is slow when compared to her opponent. While there is no direct type disadvantage, I don't see how Nidorana can will especially when Staryu can always hide in the water to avoid any direct hits from her.
Was Gam really able to defeat those trainers before him? Nidorana is poison and ground type if I remember correctly, you could have taught her mudslap or mudbomb to counter thunder or thunder wave. You are going to tackle a gym so you should have planned a proper strategy. Heck! Even rock tomb can slow down Staryu's speed. Plus, knowing that Nidorana doesn't have any long range attacks and is slow when compared to Staryu, why did you even choose her? No offense but this chapter is absolute crap, plot vice.
"not", I say that you poisen them all!
