Yeah, but it's bad writing, as more than one person has pointed out to me. There's a fine line between keeping things to a realistic level and departing entirely from canon. I'm trying to toe that line. Red is definitely special, and a naturally gifted Trainer, although it doesn't need to be stressed at every turn. E: Stall's right. Everyone has their own style, and their own likes and dislikes. I'm glad that people enjoy my writing as it is, but I want to make it better, if I can.
