“So how does Mega Evolution work again? It’s supposed to be reserved for trainers who have a strong, genuine bond with their Pokémon, right? Because I battled this one trainer whose bond with his Pokémon was anything but strong and genuine.
“To put it nicely, he was
rude. Rude to other people, rude to his opponents, and rude to his Pokémon. He
would bark orders to his Pokémon while they were battling, and every misstep
was met with harsh swears and demeaning comments. I couldn’t imagine how his
Pokémon would respect him, but apparently, his Beedrill respects him enough to
be able to Mega Evolve.
“I obviously lost because I was so caught off-guard by the Mega Evolution. It sickens me to this day thinking that he still treats his Pokémon that way. And what’s worse is that he’s the type of person who wouldn’t listen to anyone’s comments but his own. If you ask me, he doesn’t deserve to have a Key Stone at all.”
