The one mystery in life I may never understand as long as I live is how anyone couldn’t be in love with these toxic rabbit-like chimeric pocket monsters from outer space (or whatever). Apathy towards Nidoran is admission of hating nice things (at least that’s what I’ve read from a study on the internet somewheres). Come on, they’re so sweet!
It’s well established that Nidorina is all about family and closeness, so it only makes sense that it wouldn’t be any different when she was actually still living with them. Good values start at an early age, as they say. Or someone probably said.
