I think it will be better to type this instead of my blog I recently posted.
By definition, XY Ash had already entered Canon Sue zone since the beginning of the saga. As I'ma fanfic writer that wrote&read fanfic for many years thus just feel painful that canon work turns out worse than many averagely qualitative fanfic out there (of course, there exist very poor quality ones as well).
Yes agreed there. I'll be honest, I STILL have NOT used Floatzel for an Entire Game Mode, Like I've used Buizel for a while and I LOVE Buizel. I just guess I find a Pokemon that's better than Buizel and just NEVER get to Floatzel
Yeah, basically in the same thinking as yours, due to the monster designs. You actually explained the reason better than I do. I think many of the original Digimon on Pixiv even do a better job than these Applimon. I don't think they are Digimon, so I'll call them Applimon to separate them from Digimon.
