When it’s Cor’s birthday, he receives a gift from Regis and…
There’s definitely a shop in Insomnia that sells them. Regis browses through a catalog online and found one he was looking for, thinking Cor would appreciate it
“Clarus, he’s going to love them. Right?”
“Ecstatic, Your Majesty.”
“I don’t like your tone.”
“Oh dear… that’s tragic.” [rolls eyes]
Once the package arrives, Regis wraps it all up and gives it to Cor
Cor takes the gift box with a red ribbon tied but when he opens it and takes the slippers out, he… doesn’t have much words. Green and tentacles. Very green and tentacles. Wait, wasn’t this creature on some tv show?
Regis waits, smiles, and waits some mor. Cor loves them, he totally does, he thinks.
But Cor stares at Regis then to the slippers and to Regis again. He tries, he really tries to smile
“Thank you, they’re uh… they’re really nice?” They’re for kids. They’re definitely for kids.
“Aren’t they? I thought they were perfect for you. I even got a pair for myself. And look, we match!”
Cor looks down and yup, the king is wearing the exact same slippers, and the poor Marshal really doesn’t know what to do while holding the box.
And Regis is dying from the wait. “Well? Go ahead and try them on. I hope I got your size right.” There’s that lingering pout that Cor catches and he knows all too well
Cor couldn’t say no. He doesn’t have the heart to especially when Regis is giving him THAT look. He takes off his boots and puts on the malboro-slippers
“They’re warm.” Cor notices and toes wiggle inside. He starts walking around, getting a feel of it. “Comfortable too.”
Okay. So they’re not too bad, and Regis is practically beaming. “Happy Birthday, Cor.”
Of course, Cor forgot
Later on in the day:
“I take it he liked the gift?” Clarus asked
“He does.” Regis looks out and spots Cor walking with the slippers still on while the children followed behind. Noctis & co are all curious as to what Cor was wearing. The King catches faint words in the air.
Rating Of Every Raichu Sprite From Main Series Pokemon Games
Detailed for what limited pallets the gameboy had back than, slightly minamalist and simplistic in design as all gen 1 Pokemon are. I respect this elder regardless for his original design. 9/10
A PERFECT BOY!! Look at that expression full of excitement! I wish we could have seen more of this quality Raichu in this game. 10/10
Designers, c’mon now. This isn’t fair. You can’t just make me choose between TWO sprites to rate!! But if I have to choose, than I prefer 1st sprite. He’s fat, powerful and that expression on his face just screams of smugness. The second Raichu, however, seems to have more mischievous expression rather than aggression. Both receive a 7/10.
Not as fat, but I do like his “PUT EM UP, SCRUB” pose. 9/10
He’s finally relaxed, he’s no longer in constant attack mode! I’m so proud of him of his comfort around others! 11/10
I am concerned for his sudden shift in weight gain, but as long as he feels comfortable with his weight however, than so do I. Now there’s just more of this big boy to hug. 9/10
What a joyful expression! An improvement to the previous 2nd gen sprites. I trust him. 10/10.
Another quality sprite! This one takes inspiration from the mid animation frame from 4th gen, I see! I appreciate the reference. Also, look at the those LEGS! 9/10
Not much detail, and I miss his expressions and pose. He’s happy with his transcendence to 3D but I miss the little details. :( 5/10
NOW THAT’S MORE LIKE IT!! The happiest boy I’ve ever seen. Unratable, to put a number on his perfection would be a crime. He’s not quite as chubby however, but he must be light enough to fit on his tail. Still enjoys a Malasada every now and than. Finally gets his time in spotlight with his new found psychic powers away from the popularity of Pikachu. He’s even got his own Z-move! Good job, little buddy on your rise to stardom!
