Needs beta: Pokemon gameverse, Green/Red, multipart longfic

Fandom: Pokemon Gameverse (HGSS, Kanto focus, with frequent mention of other gens/regions)
Characters/Pairings: Green/Red. Supporting cast includes Professor Oak, Kris, Silver, Leaf, Daisy Oak, Red's Mom, Red's Pikachu, Green's Eevee, and a whole plethora of OCs. The fic takes place 13 years after the events of the games, so the characters are all a little older.
Rating & Warnings: The fic is rated T. Major themes are trauma recovery, difficult/fraught family situations, near death experiences, second chances, the ocean, and forgiveness. Overall, the fic is meant to be uplifting rather than dark.
Estimated Fic Length: 30-35k, probably? Four out of the five parts are written and it's 25k so far. I mostly need a beta for parts 3 (7k) and 4 (8k), and maybe part 5 when it's finished. Though if you wanted to look at the first two parts I wouldn't say no...
Notes: You can read the first chapter here if you'd like a preview. I'm looking for a beta with knowledge of the pokemon universe, who would be willing to give feedback on everything ranging from wordiness, word choice, spelling, and grammar to pacing, character voices, repetition, and anything else you'd like really. I adore constructive criticism, please critique me to within an inch of my life! But please don't be mean about it, that's all.

I'd be more than happy to beta your fic in return! I mostly hail from anime fandom (you can see the list of anime I'm familiar with here), I also know homestuck even though that fandom is dead, and I live in pokemon fandom too, of course. Alternatively, if you only want spelling/grammar/etc. help and a knowledge of the universe isn't necessary, I'm willing to lend a hand. I'm especially useful if you need medical fact-checking, as I am a health professional.
