What kind of training did you put your gym trainers through? (this is for Piers and Raihan).
What he means is that most gym trainers are there to learn either A) how to battle better, B) how to handle one type of pokemon better, C) how to handle more than one pokemon, or D) all of the above. But sometimes they might just like hanging around 😜 Which I bet was often the case for Piers's gym
For my gym its a lot of B with a bit of A. Many trainers have a hard time with dragons so naturally they come to me for tips 😘 The ones that stick around are also interested in learning to build a team around weather effects
that or theyre all nerds who stick around cause theyre interested in checking out the alpha nerds ass
Do you you ever find some Pokedex entries...DISTURBING? I mean, take Sliggoo's for instance: "It drives away opponents by excreting a sticky liquid that can dissolve anything. Its eyes devolved, so it can't see anything." and "It has trouble drawing a line between friends and food. It will calmly try to melt and eat even those it gets along well with." That's horrifying.
You say that as if those entries aren't accurate 😅 Sliggoo are blind, tiny brained, and only want to eat. If you aren't food then you're an enemy and should stay away! Or at least that's what they think. They also can't really control the toxicity of their slime in that stage again due to their tiny brains. It makes them a real challenge to train... But goodra are so sweet and loving that I found it worth the while! 🥰
There's another pokemon that comes to mind that people like to talk about because it's pokedex entries can be so horrible. Drifloon are known to abduct children because they simply think they're cute balloons and grab onto them. Some pokedexes have gone so far as to say that a drifloon will take them to "the land of the dead". But honestly? Drifloon are the innocent victims here. They approach children wanting to play, but children as we all should know can get very rough without meaning to. A drifloon's strings are sensitive! Mistreatment will make them fly away. And if a kid doesn't let go when it takes off? Well... Now you can see why some people think they deliberately kidnap children. And as for the "land of the dead"? I'm sure you can imagine what might happen when the child eventually loses their grip if they aren't rescued swiftly... It's grim to think about, but these are things that can be a real danger and to ignore the warnings we're given is foolish. That doesn't mean the pokemon can't be a good companion, it just means that certain precautions should be taken around them.
Recent OC ask meme, please! Numbers 58, 71, and 72 for Alexis or Elliot, whoever you prefer.
Hello @youareshauni !
58. Which friend do they immediately become a zero-braincelled idiot around?
Honestly, when they're around each other. they would have zero-braincells. Alexis would try to stop his sister from doing something stupid, while unknowingly fueling the fire and doing his own stupid stuff.
But besides each other, Alexis often doesn't allow himself to go zero braincell mode, mainly cause he's the one with the braincells. Though he does let luce with Cheren, Bianca, and N, and recently with the Galar Gang ( Sonia, Leon, Raihan).
When Elliot wants to have a good time, she's gonna have a good time. She's the goofier of the two, so yeah she's gonna go zero brain mode when she's with people she's cool with lol.
71. What do they want to do in the future?
This is a pretty loaded question. At the moment, both are content with what they're doing. And later down the line,both end up journeying across the world( or try to).
But in the future future? It's hard to say. There's the possibility that they become musicians like they're parents once where. Another is where they become something akin to pokemon and battling. Maybe they join something similar to the Battle Subway? Or maybe they just settle down, and start a family.
Though I feel like at the end of the day, as long as they're happy with their pokemon and those they love, then that's all they need.
72. How do they feel about love?
Both of them loves love( both romantic and platonic). It's something they both desire.
Elliot is always going to say how much she appreciates her friends and family. She's the more physical of the two, giving lots of ( surprise) hugs. Her favorite victim is her brother, but she'll do it to anyone really ( if they're comfortable with it that is)
Alexis, despite being a lover of love, often feels like he isn't good enough for it. This comes from guilt of actions that he had done before. Basically, he fears that he'll one day just leave everyone he loves again and don't come back, hurting them again. More than before. Though things are different now, so he's slowly warming up to the idea that he's good enough to love and be loved( his family is the reason for that)
Romantically, this man is dense. Unless your directly and verbally flirting/ stating your attraction to him( like that one cashier), he will not notice a thing. His poor sister has to watch him be oblivious to Leon's advances( as futile as they are). Pray for her y'all.
But yeah. A and E both love love and hope to have it flourish one day :)
Do you guys have any merch of your favourite pokemon?
I have a huge charizard plush. Raihan likes to lay on it when he visits.
Its comfy! 😁
I also have a few figures on a shelf. I think all I have are charizard, dragapult, haxorus, aegislash, cinderace, inteleon, and rillaboom. I want the rest of my team eventually but those are harder to find.
I have a little goomy and a little trapinch plush on a shelf! Plus a number of goofy/cute printed socks and boxers!
youve heard about my plush collection. thats it for me
