Stand/Off in Lumiose was a 2014 fanfic written by The Canadian Infernape, which focuses on two different Pokemon shippings, Amourshipping and Growingupshipping (Trainer x Emma), a first for Canadian. It is now cancelled.


Lumiose City is in lockdown, its citizens in danger from a dangerous criminal gang running the city, and Ash and co. are not immune to the dangerous streets. However, when a bewildering event occurs, Ash and his friends must depend on each other like never before to survive the violence within the city.

Meanwhile, Jayson is becoming a regular detective at the Looker Bureau with Emma/Essentia, they and their partnership are getting quite famous within the city. Their partnership becomes tested as they are assigned by the Lumiose Police Department to take down the criminal gang.

Writing History

The Canadian Infernape, already having mixed reactions about his fanfics, with the failure of his previous fanfic, was ready to try something different.

With this fanfic, instead of focusing on actual shippings and romantic plots, Canadian decided to make Stand/Off a fanfic 'focusing more on the action, while leaving romance as only subplots', a different approach from Dream Mist. Writing began and the first chapter was released on July 5th, 2014.

It had since been cancelled, deleted, and replaced with the Pokemon Evolution trilogy, although some elements from Stand/Off had been incorporated in Pokemon Evolution.
