    Okay, but real talk: The professors in this game have to be some of the most callous villains Game Freak have ever put in Pokemon.

      While that is true, in the end it’s her trying to take his mind off of it alongside Penny that helps him. The way they decide to take the long way home to go on a longer adventure is such a lowkey beautiful moment. Because in real life, when people are struggling with these heavy issues that nobody can really do much about, it can do so much good just to invite them out with a group of friends and take their mind off of it.
      Nemona definitely said some insensitive things, but she really did help him in the end, and I find it so wholesome and surprising that they end the story on an answer I feel most people don’t know about.

And like, Team Star was causing problems. Even if it wasn’t coming from the five at the top, the prologue shows that Team Star is harassing other students to join, which I would call bullying. Not to mention they’re not going to classes and have stolen literally thousands of desks and other pieces of equipment from the school. And the whole time, they’re all treating it like breaking up Team Star meant never seeing each other again, when it’s like, no, you can still be friends, you’re just not allowed to be a gang.

    I'll be honest, when I played it I thought that Arven's dog was dying of old age and he was in denial and looking for these mythical plants because he was desperately searching for anything to save its life. Turns out it was just injured, and I was a bit disappointed because I was hoping for some tough story threads, but then the game pulled a fast one on me by saying "instead of his dog, it's his DAD!

The one complaint i have about your rivalry is not even about her, its about how Geeta is the top champion even though Nemona is not only harder with a more cohesive team, but somehow not the top champion?! Nemona’s story and personality is just nearly perfect. Her motives and desires are pretty damn clear from the get go and up till the end is literally cheering you on so that she could find her treasure which is finding the perfect rival who could make battling not mundane anymore

Arven tries to check on him, and his only companion, an insanely high leveled Mabostiff he's had since he was a baby, was brought to the brink of death. He hates Nemona for constantly trying to battle him when all he wants is for his best friend to not die and thus he can't ask her for help. He finally saves the dog that was more family to him than his parents were, only to learn that the dad he's resented for years DIED while he was working, but it was so normal for his dad to leave him alone that he just thought his dad finally forgot him. Then his father's AI body double declared he loves him, only to LEAVE HIM ANYWAYS. He is then dragged along on a road trip, which to be fair he enjoys, but doesn't even get time to GRIEVE before the director is reminding him about all the classes he needs to catch up on to graduate. You know, the classes he ditched in an effort to save his only living family, his dog, from a slow and painful death.

    I have some major issues about your comments on team start...
    1) they were ALL severely bullied so they formed star
    2) only Ortega is rich, and actually DOESN'T take money from parents, making their own stuff and inventions through their own efforts
    3) they broke school rules, didn't show up, and even went as far as to literally round up and attack the ones who bullied each of them for being different (weird).
    4) this story and the fact the consequences didn't really happen is simple... here in the US we seemingly love to imprison troubled kids and adults after a single offense, and instead of helping them and re-educating them, we throw them under the rug and expect them to just change and get better. Hell lots of the crimes, especially on impoverished or lower class kids, get embelished by prosecutors all the time to increase the sentence, just to ensure a sentence passes. SO this story is more about how you can help troubled youth without just throwing them away and hoping for the best. Penny comitting a felony is serious sure, but giving her an outlet to use her talent for good is MUCH fucking better than arresting her. especially since no malice was present, and she did it to protect her friends and hurt no one what so ever by hacking in.
    I clearly saw you ignore the story, and then complain it was the "1%" getting away with shit, but that couldn't be further from what it was.

    Team Star was formed by a group of outcast students who were being bullied so they could group up and stand up for themselves, but when they stood up to the bullies, the bullies got scared, making Team Star look like the bullies, the school would’ve punished all of Team Star but Penny took the fall for all of them, forcing her to return to her home in Galar for a year and a half, Team Star refused to return to school until the big boss did, and this resulted in them nearly getting expelled

      I’m pretty sure Jacob’s admitted to actually having been a bully in school/high school/college during an Alpharad Deluxe/Plus episode. He really wouldn’t relate to Team Star. He’s the reason the exist in the first place. Which makes it all the more ironic that he, whether jokingly or not, ends up acting like exactly what Team Star were made to fight against. Ignorant, unsympathetic and cruel. That part however is kind of just the character Alpharad, which is an over exaggeration of Jacob the person.

    • @Zoroark_Master
      @Zoroark_Master ปีที่แล้ว +34

      In one of his alpharad gold video he "claims" that he did know and paid attention to the story, and just wanted to had his own "interpretation” (he did seems pretty upset at the team star stuff specifically. So he’s basically saying he was upset at stuff he himself added in, or was he faking being upset?)

He lied in 2 pokemon nuzlockes (he pretended he lost lol) for better content, he redoes many shots live and exaggerates parts of his character for better content, and he prefers to build his own storyline rather than follow the game's.

    I actually like seeing Penny and the rest of Team Star put into community service instead of just tossing them into jail and calling it a day. Nice to see a justice system built on reformation rather than simple imprisonment or punishment. They don't get off scot free, and are made to give back to the community. Good stuff, Pokemon Company.
