This Pokemon would rather be doing donuts than fighting Ganon.
Dex filler, but at least it compliments the breeding mechanic. Most of them should at least appear in the wild though, so you aren't working harder for a weaker Pokemon. Elekid is the best of the bunch.

The reason she guides people all the way down to the mountain's base is that she wants them to hurry up and leave.

I swear I tried to think of a Pokédex description. They all sound very cringe though.
People are salty but I love the idea.

What do you think of the Pokemon-like game called Temtem? (I personally like it)

A timid Pokémon typically found in groups. The only thing that motivates her more than companionship is food.
From what I've seen it, differs from Pokemon more than you'd expect, at least in vibes. I think the fact that it's a MMO is cool.

Vanilla ice cream.

Surprisingly enjoyable games, and probably has one of the best villains in Pokémon ever.

Thoughts on sour desserts?

I think sometimes they get a bad rap, but honestly I really like them. One of my favourite animals imo. Don’t think it’s that spicy of a take, but in general it seems to be considered the edgelord’s taste in animals and I’m definitely not edgy.

Thoughts about creating a fantasy race?

Oh jeez oh heck please just go watch this Lindsay Ellis video that talks about how racial coding and allegory leaks into fantasy races first. Or don’t touch the stuff, which is also Good

Better the less toasted it is. Just make it kinda crispy, that's how it's best.

Opinions on pork chops, cause my dinner wasn't very appetizing.

I love pork chops. I don't think there's a single way to prepare pork that I don't like. Pork chops are good. Ham is good. Pulled pork? Don't get me started.

Opinion on the PS5?

Design-wise, it looks cool, but I'm hoping for an all black version sometime in the future, otherwise it's gonna really REALLY stand out.

On the same subject (kinda): Next Gen Games.

With the pokedex number of 493, this Pokemon is essentially Arceus and fully intends to let the power get to his head.
i hated the last of us before it was cool

I'm not all that interested in Star Wars: Squadrons. I didn't really enjoy playing space battles on Battlefront 2 PS2 as a kid, and while I'm not doubting that improvements have been made since then, I don't trust EA to not get their greasy fingerprints all over the game. Yes, even after Fallen Order. All it took was one mishandling of microtransactions to destroy any faith a gamer could have in a company.

plus i don't really wanna get a PS5

They can be actually quite enjoyable, you just need a pretty good social media team who isn’t completely out of touch with the modern internet and are willing to have a bit of fun. Not sure how spicy that take is, but I know people who really hate corporate social media accounts.

How about Romantic Comedies?

I have social anxiety, so I am physically unable to watch like half the movie, as it causes me deep psychological pain. That said, I live them to death, and I will die defending Pride and Prejudice as one of the greatest works of English literature.

Lap dogs are great, but I want one of those bigger dogs! Golden Retriever all the way!

How about the upcoming PlayStation 5?
