I noticed that Human-on-Human violence and Human-on-Pokémon violence is very uncommon in the Pokémon anime and game but quite a bit more common in darker fics.
So my question is, do y'all stay away from this idea or no?
My works feature this a lot.
Even my crackfic has melee combat (armed and unarmed) between Humans. Firearms and other weapons are used against Humans and pokémon in addition to pokémon attacks.
