Shameless Plug: My Fic - "Pocket Monsters: The Battle Quest"

Okay, so sorry for the shameless plugging of my fanfic , but as a writer who is looking to improve my skills, I'd really appreciate all the feedback and constructive criticism I can get.
My fic is called, "Pocket Monsters: The Battle Quest."
No, this isn't a story about Ash Ketchum and Pikachu or about your typical canon story from the anime, game or manga-verse. "Pocket Monsters" is designed to be a complete re-creation of the Pokemon concept.
Basically, it's my own semi-unique take on how I think the Pokemon World would look if it were more "real."
"Pocket Monsters" will be a trilogy of novel-length stories that center around the story of a boy named Milo Youngblood. "The Battle Quest" will be the first of the three books of the "Pocket Monsters" saga.
For those who are interested:
Milo, who is 14 years old at the beginning of the saga, is a very introverted and shy teenager who lives in a very small town with his mother.
Past tragedies have definitely shaped Milo's life and his troubled past has made him into the shy, socially awkward teenager that he is today.
Deathly afraid of his upcoming freshman year at his new high school and all of the social struggles that he is sure to face, Milo is afforded the opportunity to go on an epic and exciting journey across the country as part of a huge, nationwide competition called "The Kanto Battle Quest."
With his mother's blessing, Milo decides to forgo his first year of school to go on this Battle Quest.
Milo is relieved to be missing school, but quickly realizes that this epic voyage around Kanto will not just be a vacation.
Along the way, Milo not only encounters many strange places, people and creatures, but he suddenly finds himself in the middle of a series mysterious occurrances around the country... occurances that he soon realizes may be connected somehow.
Milo learns a lot during his journey as well... about Pokemon, about the world around him... and about himself and his dark past as well.
Anyways, that's the teaser!
If any of you have some spare time to give my story a quick read, I'd GREATLY appreciate it.
Like I said, I'm always looking to improve as a writer and the only way to do that is to have people critique my work and leave feedback.
Here is the link to my fic if anyone would be kind enough to give it a chance: http://bmgf.bulbagarden.net/f227/pocket-monsters-battle-quest-4-a-121454/
It is rated M for some adult themes, violence, deaths, sexual situations, etc. Nothing overly graphic, but want to be safe with the rating.
Anywho, thanks to anyone who is willing to help me out :)
