Description
Cloud birds that soar through the blue sky; Terrorblood wolves that roam the wastelands ruthlessly. Dream beasts that dart through the moonlight forests; Ghost kings that dwell on foggy cliffs. Ocean spirit beasts that haunt the depths of the boundless oceans; thousand-eyed treants that stand unyielding on precipitous peaks.
Sword Beetles, Sunset Eagles, Ancient Wood Demons, Chaotic Thunder Sprites, Cursed Demon Fox: Ice… Plants, Beasts, Elementals, Undead, this is the eccentric, variegated, beautiful, and stunning world of soul pets!

Our protagonist, a soul pet trainer, had at first a young, mutated soul pet – a Moonlight Fox. In unending fights, it mutated into the stronger Evil Flamed Six-tailed Demon fox and the even higher leveled Queen Flamed Nine-tailed Firefox!
Under the companionship of this soul pet, he walked on the path to become a king, catching precious and rare soul pets, and never ceasing his endeavor to becoming the very best!

It is great till the end...

I've read this entire story in full in another language.
This is indeed the savage bloody version of Pokémon. The story is great to read till the end. The ending was very rushed with the worst possible ending you could imagine. It almost seems like the book got axed and the author had to come up with an excuse to end it.
Spoiler: please don't look unless you want to know the ending.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The MC gets locked in the sun for all of eternity. He gets to see his loved ones, his pets, and friends live on their lives without him and no knows wth happened to him. And apparently the entire story is only an infinite time loop due to the powers of his main pet. He gets to be stuck outside of the loop and watch it all over again.


Truly, the most disappointing ending... seriously pissed me off.
9 for the start and body of the story. -7 for the ending...

This author is definitely a Pokemon fan and wanted to make his own more mature version. Does he do a good job? I think so.

His Pokemon universe is way more realistic and set in a much less Utopian world than the original Pokemon is based in. Noticeable examples: The pokemon and their trainers die in combat often and pokemon trainers are very much exposed to the combat like their pokemon and are often the focus of the battles themselves.

This story also heavily borrows from the wuxia tropes of power levels. The author establishes "soul power" and has the setup of basic ranks and levels of each. After X levels unlocks Y abilities, etc for both for the trainers and the pokemon. Unoriginal but feels okay. I like how trainers need to get stronger to acquire stronger pokemon while having your pokemon get stronger makes you stronger. Also like how the pokemon power levels are a little bit different (and obviously stronger) than the trainer's power levels.

Speaking of Wuxia tropes, this story suffers from the very frequent (what I like to call) "wuxia fluff" where the author always has to remind you how amazing the MC is. This really isn't saying much since if you're reading a Wuxia story, you will NOT be able to avoid this. Just how the format goes.. sadly.

The pacing of the story is pretty good. Although the author cheats a little with frequent time skips. These timeskips also break up any sense of character development since a lot of it happens off-screen.

The hook is great. Our MC is thrown into an island controlled by a messed up Team Rocket. Death is always near. Even when our MC starts to overcome his initial hurdles (not a spoiler since the MC can't die like in all other Wuxia), the author throws bits of additional plot points for us to chew on for future events. The author seems to be planning ahead which is great. Can't say the same for many other Wuxia novels.

What worries me a little is the 1800 chapter count. Having read up to around 150 chapters already, I can't imagine the story lasting more than 600-900 chapters before the author destroys the pacing, start using repetitive elements or makes our MC start traveling across worlds and fighting in the cosmos.

Pokemon. Literally Pokemon. Dark and gritty doesn't mix well with Pokemon. They don't even fight with their poke-partner-whatever-mon. Just sit back and take out their poms poms and start dancing in the moonlight while the monsters fighting for their life.
