Lots of people seemt o like Gold, which I'm surprised about.
I can see your point, and lots of people have said that Gold should win more. I'm happy with how I'm doing things, and I do have all the battles planned out, with how and why whoever it is wins. Kris will lose some more and Gold will lose some more.
Gold's occasional anger towards his Pokemon is meant to be subsiding, but he does have a big temperment problem, which can cause hiom to overreact in battles.
And yes, I've been considerign doing something like "A Step Backwards" for Gold, but I'm not sure quite where it would fit in. But there are two stories which begin from his point of view, but than they move into Kris'.
The final part will be up soon... hopefully
