Realism

It's increasingly seeming like some contingent of the Pokemon fandom actually thinks the word "realistic" means "the most contrived, grotesque, grimderpy nonsense you can come up with", rather than anything that even vaguely resembles actual real life.

And I should probably stop reading badfic before I give myself some sort of frustration-ulcer. (but it's so much fun)

    Personally, I'd love it if the series became really dark. It would add more depth to what many consider a children's game.

    I'm perfectly happy with my Pokemon Games, Anime, and various Manga the way they are :I

    Then there's the opposite but equally asinine approach of writing "Mature/Realistic" fics by turning Pokemon into sappy, cliche'd shoujo-esque "romantic" drivel, with the titular critters all but absent. Those fics almost make the 3edgy5u stories seem good.

    People seems to think mature means gore and blood.

    Why not meet with the extremes and have a shoujo-esque high school romance where people kill for no reason other than to create a horrifically dreary story? Nothing says 'romance' quite like a lack of Pokemon and blood everywhere.

    I must be one of few people who would prefer if Pokémon stayed completely lighthearted ^^;

    Not sure about completely lighthearted (Pokemon black comedy would be something to see~ and actually well-written dark stuff would be ok too), but I'm fine with it generally staying that way.

    What I consider realistic isn't so much as gritty as it is just putting like, common logic into things, even if the common logic shouldn't be needed, kind of what you said. I don't like super dark things at all, heck real life aint super dark, it's just, not always action-packed and could get boring depending how you go about it. :U
