Some Falloutmon origin stuff. Vino accidentally became a trainer when an egg that he found in a ruined caravan and was transporting to a daycare hatched in his hands.
“If you’re gonna do this for real, we have to get you a better hat.”
“I’m not ‘doing this for real.’ And what’s wrong with my hat?”
“Nothing! But it’s not really champion material, y’know? The Pre-War Pokemon masters were basically living legends--and they all had Really Cool Hats.”
Hi professor! Question for you ~
I work at a campus library, and was considering getting my first pokemon. I really like the idea of a spinarak or one of its variants, but all of my coworkers have psychic types.
Are we doomed to have conflicts because of typing? I don’t want to put my pokemon in a hostile environment.
It's widely thought that typing mismatches will yield conflict, but this is not the case. A pokemon's personality type will be the main reason for disagreements, and as trainers, your colleagues should be able to control their partners should your new buddy and their pokemon not get along, same goes for you with your new partner. You can quite happily teach behaviours should there be personality clashes, for example, having a "Time out" zone for situations that leave pokemon annoyed or angry at others behaviour. This zone is a good place to go, and the rules are you (and any pokemon) leave them well alone when in that zone, gives them cool down time, a chance to collect their feelings and regroup in peace. Theres a hundred methods for keeping the work place calm but your actual concern of typing clashes shouldn't be a big issue if you find a partner with an agreeable nature.
I'd certainly go look at local adoption agencies, bug types get ditched a lot, and handed in with usually no issues other than the trainer not wanting them anymore, at least that way you get a chance to know the pokemon before deciding on if you want to keep them, or if they'd be a good fit for your lifestyle. wild pokemon you kind of have to do some guess work when picking, so its a sure fire better way to pick if you're worried about personality clashes.
Should you find a good buddy, in your home it would be fun for them to have a climbing zone. Some folks get a big heavy bucket of sand and spike large branches into it for the pokemon to climb, and make a web in and around, others hang sticks and bits of wood from the ceiling, put a net up on a balcony if they have that option. They're an adaptable pokemon, and with their own silk, will build a nest so providing them a bed isn't an issue. With age they do tend to lose their grippy feet, but this also happens before a shed, and they can struggle to get up to their usual high locations, so provide ample netting or a form of ladder or cloth for them to grab onto, should they become a little less able to climb during this time.
Honestly they're super chill buddies to have, i think you've picked a good one! Should your office mates pokemon be well trained and socialised, there shouldn't be an issue.

i started using a cane after the pandemic started and recently met with a care provider who hadnt ever seen me with it before. one of the first things he asked was if i had hurt myself and made a whole big deal about how i should do some sort of dance thing with a top hat now that i had a cane. i felt so fucking alienated in the space since he literally was helping me with my persons with disability paperwork. like now that i was getting help in a way that he could see it deserved to be made fun of. i know that he was trying to make a joke but i dont understand why it has to be a whole big deal every time. i wish it could just be normal that i use a cane now
that’s so incredibly insensitive oh my god??? fuck doctors, fuck that doctor in particular, you deserve kind & respectful care and someone not making offensive ableist jokes is the absolute bare minimum. i really hope you receive affirming care in the future - and that your disability application is successful!!
really glad to hear that you respected your body & needs enough to start using a cane and I hope it’s helping!!
