https://twitter.com/CyclopsAtlas/status/1064170521754050561 I made this as a goof while talking to my partner. But like, this actually brings up a pretty interesting question, if you know your pokemon can come back as a ghost at some to be determined date, even if its an entirely different species, would you still catch it?
Would you want it? Someone else might come along and do so, and then your pokemon would be out there in potentially some person who’d treat them like crap, or abuse them’s party.
Would you try and find a way to help it pass on if thats possible or would you keep your friend around?
Thats not even getting into the existential issues involving yamask obviously, this is just about that, and the ethics behind it.
Pokemon is messed up to begin with to be fair, but it tries to instill a sense of ‘friendship and caring’ with your group of pokemon, like these are ‘yours’ they’re your friends.
Thats more or less my thoughts on it and how messed up pokemon is, brought to you by a joke I made.
