The Long Road Home has loads of stolen content and the author is a total narcissist. The writing is ridiculously cliché and some of it sends the message that money equals love. The terms “mate” and “marked” were used, making it feel disgusting and quite frankly, cringy. Most creators pride themselves in originality and love for the series. ASmash4Lucario definitely isn’t one of them.
