While I will admit that Pokémon and Zelda and other games that I enjoyed as a youngster are indeed fodder for fucking with some heads, there comes a time when it gets to be too much. If it's not an overpowered glitch Pokemon, it's BEN. AGAIN. The original Ben story still gives me chills when reading at night, but reading like fifty other BEN stories in succession, each with shoddily done videos (though I will congratulate the authors of the pastas for the time and effort put into the videos), BEN starts to lose his appeal.

If you're going to do a Pokemon Pasta, enough with the overpowered Pokemon and the strings of 'POKéMON HAS DIED!' over and over again. It's effective when you don't abuse it. Look at Glitchy Red: Plenty creepy, with the only death being to a Raticate that references the theory of Blue's Raticate no longer making an appearance in-game. None of this




Etc, etc, bullshit that seems to be trending, sorry, PLAGUING Poképastas.

We don't need any more notes about Cleverbot conversations with BEN, we don't need Cartridges with duct tape and P0K3mONz or Z3LD4 or whatever written on them. Poképastas are dead. BEN is dead. Let them lie.

EDIT1 - Also, get a Beta Reader to proofread before submitting. Your pasta may have merit, but it's pointless if it's a jumbled mess of run on scentences, walls of text, zero punctuation, etc. And it'll just piss people off.

EDIT2 - This may be a bit of Pot-Calling-Kettle-Black. My only pasta wasn't perfect when I uploaded it here, but I made sure to get second opinions before posting. I apologize if I'm being an arrogant, ignorant ass, but all of the above had to come out some how.
