Welcome to The Awesome List, a rec list of the best-of-the-best fics in all of Pokécommunity.
Every month, the fine people of the Fan Fiction & Writing forum get together to vote for their favorite fics of the most recent updates. When the poll closes and the fic with the most votes comes forward to be crowned Fic of the Month, it ends up here, in the annals of the Hall of Fame, to be honored and recced until PC finally shuts down.
The list is currently in chronological order, with the oldest at the top and every new fic being added at the bottom. The most recent addition, of course, will always be located at the very top to showcase its sheer amount of awesome until the next Fic of the Month comes along.
For fics that received the honor of being Fic of the Month prior to the current FotM system, see this list.
