    I personally don't think there's an effective way to define the term, 'Mary-Sue' except for by using the word, Cliche. Over-used, and boring.

    Which sadly (though most people likely realize this, they just won't admit it), Pokemon itself is filled with Cliches and Mary-Sues (which really makes you question the logic of some of the critics that comment on Fics having a 'Mary-Sue' in them XD).

    But if I had to give an example (as in, the world is going to explode if I don't), I'd probably say that overpowered characters could definitely fit into that category. They're cliche, and I see them all too often.
