    Re: Preffered Writing Style?

    ATTENTION: Re: General Writing Questions

    The question to ask is "Does what I'm adding advance the plot?"

    Right now, I recommend you not add the lesson because it seems like pointlesss filler material.

    Are they sentient? Yes.

    Are they sapient? Not all of them. Most psychic and fighting types and all Legendaries probably are. All types have their sapient members but the bug and poison types have...

    Re: Creative liberties with your story

    I also make the cities and towns much larger than depicted in the games. They're on par with what's shown in the anime.

    As long as you aren't writing a hate filled screed, you should be fine.
