Ok so it wasn't Chalenor that Mark got (See my comment on the previous chapter) you said rabbit ears and spikes and my mind went to the Prologue.Also I can't help but notice Mark and May sound a slight bit like Brendan and May from Pokemon R/S

What nothing about Ash's Wife other than a picture no name! Ugh, but if you did give a name it would probably set off a shipping group or something. God,the public is fickle. Oh but nice fanfic.

Chapter: Chapter 61: Mewtwo

Wait, I'm finding this a little hard to understand. Mark's whole theory relies on Mew creating a copy of Mewtwo for 'insurance' in the war somehow, then using that copy of Mewtwo to create Chaletwo after the last War. But wouldn't the copy of Mewtwo 'bounce back' in time anyway, because it was created in the future/present and therefore should be anchored to the present? Loved the chapter anyhow, I coincidentally just watched Mewtwo Strikes Back and Mewtwo Returns just before reading it so this awesome portrayal of Mewtwo was especially nice after seeing my favourite character from the anime :)

Reply: Well, to quote Mark himself explaining his theory:

“And that doesn’t make sense because living creatures belong to a certain time and should bounce back there when the Destroyer has drained the power that’s keeping them there. But Mewtwo’s body isn’t quite a living creature, is it?”

In other words, while living creatures are anchored to the time where they belong (you'll notice Chaletwo also described it as being only living creatures that are anchored when he was explaining time travel in chapter 39) and would bounce back, Mark's theory basically hinges on the assumption that the "living creature" distinction is about souls, and therefore a soulless copy of Mewtwo's body just wouldn't have an anchor in the first place. Without an anchor tying it to the time where it's "supposed" to be, it could be taken to any place in time and left there without power being required to keep it there, hence no bouncing back.

Chapter: Chapter 61: Mewtwo

holy shit this was a good chapter. I was reading it as they were talking about a deranged mew coming and making a copy of Mewtwo's body, and it kinda made sense. The only thing is the way Mewtwo was described in the prologue was that he was alive, so I don't know what to think anymore.

Reply: Mewtwo was not alive in the prologue; the ILCOE one says the body looks newly dead, and the IALCOTN one just describes it as a body.

Chapter: Chapter 61: Mewtwo

Wow, so short. Oh well, it was pretty awsome even though I was looking for something a bit longer. LOVED Mark's theory, but there was one point where mewtwo said mew was a she, but chaletwo said mew was a he. It's kinda confusing, but again, oh well. great job! (random site visitor for fanfic and CoD).

Reply: There wasn't "one point"; Mewtwo uses "she" in reference to Mew throughout the whole conversation, while Chaletwo (and Mark following him) has used "he" throughout the fic. Mew is genderless and doesn't care about pronouns; it is up to the speaker what pronoun they use for it. Entei similarly used "she" for Mew in chapter 51, where this was brought up.

Chapter: Chapter 61: Mewtwo

In this line:

"“So,” Mewtwo said after a pause, slowly, “supposing Chaletwo does come for me, what will happen if I do not go with him?”"

Doesn't Mewtwo mean Chalenor?

Reply: Whoops. Fixed.

Chapter: Chapter 61: Mewtwo

Wait, did I miss something or is Mewtwo referring to Mew as a she, and Chaletwo referring to Mew as a he?

Reply: And May refers to Mew as an it. In the world of this fic, Mew is genderless and has no pronoun preference; any pronoun is acceptable, and which one is used depends on the character speaking. Entei also used 'she' for Mew in chapter 51 (where this was commented on), and in some backstory material I've written from Mew's point of view, the pronoun used in the narration flips between scenes.

Some other legendaries are like that as well, but Chaletwo uses 'he' as a default, and Mark (and thus the narration) pretty much picked that up from him.

Reply: It probably won't be too long. You can follow the progress with the next chapter on the Quest Blog (the top is up-to-date with the current status).

Oh, gosh. This really makes me laugh. Especially the part where Taylor thanks Mew for bringing him life, which points out that even HE knew that he didn't have one. I wonder how many MarkXMay shippers squeed before they realized this wasn't cannon. :)

Did you know that you left out Dratini in recap of Mark's team last chapter, and you left out Gyrados this chapter? I get why you would leave out Gyrados this chapter (with there being no water and all), but I just thought I'd let you know in case you didn't mean for it to happen. Thanks!

Reply: Dratini wasn't mentioned because so far as Mark knew, he didn't have any particular issues. It wasn't a recap of Mark's team so much as a recap of the issues of Mark's team.

Wow!! Razor finally goes back to his past! I actually remembered really clearly his whole backstory - well, the general idea any way. It's amazing how Shadowdart turned out like that, but I geuss that's what something like the Code does to you. Like in real life. It was melancholy, expecially when Stormblade was sitting there, looking in the stars, and it fit.
I'm glad Razor's finally seeing new things, like with the Code. I was scared he actually might leave, but thank goodness he's staying. He sounds like he's going to be happier now.

Nice job! Nightmare will make a great leader, even though there are a few Scythers who clearly won't like her.

Nightmare's mindset made my head spin for a bit too… o_O

Chapter: Chapter 59: December

Ágætur kafli, en mér fannst hann samt svolítið ruglingslegur.
Ég átti erfitt með að skilja t.d. stat approximation og crazy stats. Hvað er þetta stats? Er það hvar pokemonarnir eru staðsettir þá stundina? Spurningamerkin sem koma fram á skjánum þegar Mark flettir upp á goðsagnapokemonunum, koma þau af því það er búið að ná þeim?

Skildi ég rétt að Puragon er ekki ístýpa, en lítur út fyrir það. Hún hefur aðlagast ís og eldi, en í grunninn er hún fljúgandi dreki?

Ég hef áhyggjur af því að þau eru að missa pokemona núna þegar þau þurfa á öllu sínu að halda til að ná síðustu goðsagnapokemonunum. Nú er Scyther líka farinn.

Reply: Stats er stytting á statistics og merkir í þessu samhengi tölur yfir hversu öflugur viðkomandi pokémon er á mismunandi sviðum, svo sem vöðvastyrk, þoli, viðbragðsflýti og svo framvegis. Pokédexið getur mælt eða áætlað þessa hluti þegar pokémon er fangaður. "Crazy stats" vísar til þess að þessar tölur séu fáránlega háar miðað við það sem gengur og gerist, enda eru goðsagnapokémonar sérlega öflugir.

Pokédexið hefur innbyggð gögn um þekkta pokémona, þannig að ef það skynjaði til dæmis Scyther þá myndi standa "Scyther" á þessum lista sem Mark var að skoða. Það hefur hins vegar ekki innbyggð gögn um goðsagnapokémonana, svo þeir birtast sem spurningamerki á listanum; Mark veit bara hvaða spurningamerki er hvað út frá gögnunum sem standa.

Þetta er nokkuð rétt túlkað hjá þér. Málið er sem sagt að Raudra lítur út fyrir að vera eldtýpa og notar aðallega eldárásir, og Puragon lítur út fyrir að vera ístýpa og notar aðallega ísárásir, en þær eru báðar flug- og drekatýpur, sem merkir að þeirra helsti veikleiki eru ísárásir, þrátt fyrir að bæði eld- og ístýpur hafi gott þol gagnvart ísárásum.

Það er ekki ennþá víst að Scyther sé farinn fyrir fullt og allt; það kemur í ljós í næsta kafla, sem er frá hans sjónarhorni.

This is probably nitpicking, I know, but Ash called Charmeleon "it" during the Attack Approval battle, even though he knows his gender. Everything else was great, though.
