Title: The Game of Champions Author: Lamora Rating: M Genre: Adventure Status: WIP Fandom: Pokemon Pairings: Genfic Summary: There are many trainers in the world; they exist in degrees, from dabbler to legend. But only one can be the very best - one man, one Champion. I am that one. I am that man. My name? Red. Link: WbA and Ffn There is simply no way this hasn't been rec'd before, but somehow, it hasn't. Easily one of the best Pokemon fics to ever grace the fandom, I think. There's just a level of sheer awesome that I rarely ever see nowadays. It's the story of Red - the character you play in the original Pokemon games rather than Ash, the idiot you see on TV. It's written in the form of him speaking to you, narrating his life story and everything he's done in his life, starting from a well developed backstory for his journey from Pallet Town and a simply fantastic view of his rivalry with Blue. It's currently around maybe 30-40 thousand words, and he updates constantly if not rapidly.
