Examine! Shiny Pokemon.
rpg item meme | @the-green-anon
You recognize this term as slang for the pokémon with gene mutations that result in their unusual color. It’s not a focus of study for you, because the fad already has more attention than it needs. You wish there were more ways to sway trainers from requesting these ‘glorified’ pokémon, and for breeders to stop trying to supply the demand. All pokémon have intrinsic worth - it’s the inside that counts the most - not the outside.
The idea of people treating living beings as mere accessories breaks your heart.
