I like it!
You have a very good plot,
you have introduced a new team, a Novice Cup,
a Pokerus, Bugsy returned.
Your character development has a positive and negative sides:
- Even though you try really hard to develop Joe's character, he got, in my opinion, not the best Pokemon. Snubull and Cleffa? I am sorry, but I think you've been unjust to Joe.
I was really disappointed that he received not Larvitar, Charmander, but Snubull
+ Adam has a great character development and he got two of my fav pokemon.
And one more +: your battle descriptions are very good.
