Do you think Sycamore takes his Garchomp on long walks and gives her lots of treats just for being cute? I think he'd be one of those trainers who spoil their Pokemon shamelessly (and honestly I'd be one too I mean let's face it)

I really think he does. I have the headcanon that he was one of the people that discovered that Eevee had another new evolution by spoiling one of the lab Eevees with love and treats.

His Garchomp gets a lot of treats when they are out walking around Kalos. The pair is quite the sight standing in lines to get a seat at some of the cafes, but the staff have become accustomed to seeing her join him. Not only does she get treats from Sycamore, but she gets quite a few from people that just admire how calm and sweet she is to everyone around her. 

What is this?!
Where did this come from?

And more importantly….

The answer to that is YES!

Poisonous Birds in Papua New Guinea and a Very Baffling Story of Evolution
They secrete batrachotoxin through their feathers, which is one of the world's most deadly poisons.

Secreted from the glands of poison dart frogs in South America, batrachotoxin is fatal at a dosage of just 0.1 milligrams. That’s equivalent to around two grains of table salt. After exposure, the toxin jams open the ion channels in its victim’s nervous system, forcing muscles to fire continuously. In around 10 minutes, the heart and lungs will seize.

Batrachotoxin just about the most potent toxin on the planet. But killing power aside, the most compelling thing about batrachotoxin is how it reveals large holes in our understanding of evolution.

In 1989, a graduate student from the University of Chicago named Jack Dumbacher was studying birds of paradise in Papua New Guinea. He was trying to catch them in nets but kept getting another bird, called a pitohui, instead.

“So I had two or three in a net and was pulling them out, and they scratched my hand,” he recalled over the phone. “I licked my cuts and instantly felt my tongue start to tingle and burn. After a moment it went numb and I thought Hey, maybe I shouldn’t have done that.”…


Artist Jane Kim has just completed painting a 3,000-square-foot mural on the wall of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology Visitor Center in Ithaca, New York, that depicts the evolution of birds.

The mural features winged representatives from each of the world’s 243 families of modern birds, painted to scale on a massive world map on the 70-foot by 40-foot wall. As well as birds, which evolved 150 million years ago, it also includes 27 dinosaurs and prehistoric beasts that are ancestors of birds.

Today, Madagascar sucker-footed bats are found only on their island home, but new research from the American Museum of Natural History and Duke University shows that wasn’t always the case. The discovery of two extinct relatives in northern Egypt suggests the unusual creatures, which evolved sticky footpads to roost on slick surfaces, are primitive members of a group of bats that evolved in Africa and ultimately went on to flourish in South America.
