Welcome to PokéBattles!

PokéBattles is a comical series of parody fanfiction combining some elements of the Pokémon universe with other anime, video games, and the real world. In fact, most PokéBattles don't have even any Pokémon in them! If this sounds interesting to you, or even if it doesn't, you should read Red Version PokéBattles. This was the first PokéBattles site created by a young Jason Ross back in 1999, and it's still pretty funny to this day. It's a good introduction to what PokéBattles is all about.

For the most part, each 'battle' is a short story which usually culminates in an actual fight between two characters. The most unique part is the style with which a battle is written. Lines in red text are the Narrator, and lines in aqua text are the Player. The Narrator always speaks in the same style as the narrator in the Pokémon games, with lots of capitalized nouns and verbs. Often times in PokéBattles, the Narrator is given a personality as well. The player can be anyone, and is usually filled by one of the main characters of whichever PokéBattles version you happen to be reading at the time. The style of writing for the player is normal. Following is an example of both:

Welcome to POKéBATTLES! I am the NARRATOR!
Hello, welcome to PokéBattles! I'm the player!
