First chapter was nice and lengthy, and very well worded. I did spot one tiny error somewhere which was a misplaced "the".
But I'm loving it so far, and I hope that you can add more to it. I am really looking forward to this gem of a story getting the polish up and love that it needs.
All the best, Fuzzy.

1) When you're writing a quote and you attach a speech tag (e.g., "said Luca") to it, don't treat it as a separate sentence.
Right: "Hello," said Luca.
Wrong: "Hello." Said Luca.
Right: "Hello!" said Luca.
Wrong: "Hello!" Said Luca.
Right: "Hello?" said Luca.
Wrong: "Hello?" Said Luca.
So passages like:
â€œOh.â€ She replied quickly
should be instead:
â€œOh,â€ she replied quickly
2) "Alright" and "ok" are not words. They should be written as "all right" and "okay" (or "OK").
3) Beware of overusing ellipses (the "..." things). Use at most one per paragraph; overusing them reduces their impact, which means people won't regard them as really having much meaning after a while.
4) Don't use both an exclamation point and a question mark, and don't use multiple exclamation points or multiple question marks. Same thing as with the ellipses; use them too much, and they lose their impact. Use more intense description to get the point across more effectively.
Right: "What?", "What!"
Wrong: "What!!", "What??", "What!?", "What?!?!???!?!!!"
Thanks for reading this. Keep in mind that grammar isn't what makes an author great. Grammar is just the icing on top of the cake of stories. Luca is done very well, but a little extra icing definitely won't hurt! :)
Date:Feb 2 2013 Chapter:Chapter 5 - Team Darkrai Rises
As always, superb work. I really like the addition of the new scenes, especially the ballroom dancing in this chapter. Makes it much clearer where Felix and Luca stand in terms of their relationship at this point in time.
The changes from the old version like trainer names and pokemon teams were a bit weird to get used to at first, but the story still flows quite nicely.
Not much I could pick out to work on, as mentioned before perhaps a little less use of '...', and a couple of typos here and there.
Can't wait until Chapter 8, been an avid fan of this story for at least 5 years.
