haha-i'm-gonna-stop-now

i always wonder how regular everyday people in the pokemon universe handle the fact that a 12 year old just whipped out a mystical legendary pokemon that was supposed to be asleep for thousands of years  

do they even know what they’re looking at? nobody alive has seen this pokemon except in cave drawings

why are they even fighting me. why don’t they just give up on the spot. be like “fuck it i’m not fighting this giant monster whale thing. you win. i’m out.”
