*Stopping to think about what happens to all those pokemon you release from a shiny hunt who are just plain normal, it can get pretty horrifying. Getting dumped on your own with your siblings, abandoned by your parents shortly after being born, all for something you had no control over. Yuuya and Ava were both one of these pokemon. And oh boy you know that if there's potential to to mess with my characters I'll take it. But in the pokemon world it's perfectly legal. What's wrong with letting pokemon "return to nature" and give them their "freedom". Overlooking the fact that these pokemon are younger than actual children, and are extremely easy pickings, both physically and mentally for omnivorous pokemon. The other chance these pokemon really stand is if they band together, toughen up, or through sheer dumb luck.
*Hey, remember back on page 17 when that Sobble gave Yuuya that pokeball. That was Yuuya's pokeball. It's one way to get into the ownership of your desired trainer.
*Oh boy shady angst! The plus side of the shady life is that you get to look hecking cool. The downside is losing everyone's trust through the lies you have to tell.
