The Pokemon, do you give them nicknames? Why if yes or no?
Because I don't, I'm just not a fan of the idea of personifying my pocket monsters. That heartless slave driver who is mostly interested in capturing the best looking pokemon to form a group of monsters that wreck shit and nothing more, yeah that's me. I like deindividuation and pokemon to go hand in hand, I want to form a strong team and have them assimilate into the legion of power hungry pokedudes that I've accumulated over the course of the franchise since Blue version. I show favoritism by having them occupy one of the six slots in my party and I provide positive reinforcement for being stronger by allowing one of them grace the top slot in the party and that's that.
I don't know about you guys.
