Sera@Remi: Hello there, dear! It's nice to meet you. I was wondering, though, about your relationship with your trainer. What sorts of limits do they set with you, dear? Have you ever made a decision or relationship that they didn't agree with? If you have, how did you feel knowing that your trainer disapproved of it? Did you pursue it anyway? What did your trainer do in response?
“My relationship with my trainer is built on trust and understanding! We’ve been together for almost a decade, so we’ve generally got a good feel for how the other works. The same can be said for the rest of the team, so we get a lot of freedom in and outside of battle. Hence why we’re free-roaming instead of stuck in our pokeballs while she’s researching!”
“The relationship between pokemon and trainers is… kinda hard to describe. It’s part mentor-apprentice, part her being maternal over us, part us being maternal over her, part friendship, and then something unique?”
“But, yeah, like any relationship we don’t always see eye to eye? I mean. I know she didn’t like my ex-boyfriend. We…. didn’t have a super clean break, so none of my teammates are exactly fond of him, but even while we were dating she and Envy didn’t care for him. It was hard, knowing the two most important people in my life didn’t approve, but I also knew that it was MY decision and they’d have to deal with it. And they did, but remind me to show you the zangoose-themed punching bag Envy got me- he thought it was hilarious. When the relationship actually ended, though, my trainer didn’t rub it in or anything. In the end we both just want to see each other happy.”
