I mean I understand fully how essential battles are given the nature of the source material, but somehow I just find the process of writing out Pokémon battles very tedious and leaving me anxious to get through to the end of the battle.
I find most other forms of action, dialog, and scene setting fun to write, but battles have always been a pain in the butt to write, even as my skills have improved.
I now find myself having to write a three on three battle in a fic where not all that many Pokémon battles will be observed in their entirety, but the few that are depicted really matter.
Just wondering if I was the only one who felt this way. A well written battle is good to read I just find writing them to be one of the least exciting aspects of writing a Pokémon fic, even if he end result reads well and works great for the story at hand.
