If you’ve got some thoughts to throw down about the discussion segment, have at it! As usual, we’ve prepared a couple of relevant questions to refer to if you’re not sure where to start:
- Where do you stand on the spectrum between entirely fantastical and entirely realistic portrayals of pokemon?
- What are some of the techniques you would use to achieve verisimilitude?

"Amongst all these foreign sensations, it's this feeling he never wants to forget. The feeling that he's defying reality in the most elegant way."
Being the leader of the Viridian Gym is stressful work--a fact which Blue Oak knows only too well. When he discovers that his position might be under threat from an old rival, he realizes it’s time to take a step back and go on vacation. He soon finds himself in Unova, where he’s asked to accompany a rookie trainer on her journey. Blue is looking forward to some relaxation as he explores the new region--but as one might expect, things never go to plan…
Aisling is a provincial girl trying on a new persona as she moves closer to bright, sparkling civilization and takes part in an exclusive pokemon training program run by the illustrious Sycamore Labs. Impressing the professor enough to get into the even more exclusive mega evolution program and winning all eight Kalos badges is a tall order, but Luck has always been Aisling's lady.
With lycée over, Xoana is floundering in a pool of her own abandoned interests and aborted hobbies. So she follows her friends as they pursue their dreams, hoping for a change, inspiration, and maybe just a bit of adventure. But Aisling’s brand might be a tad more than she bargained for. These days she doesn’t know whether to be excited or tired and which is the more dangerous.
