When ye Old Testament ocean god is as pissed off with the world above as you are. Archie finds a kindred spirit but whether it’s a wise idea combining both their rage to reclaim the sea is from the despoiling of mainlanders…..questionable.
Headcanon says that he met Kyogre once upon a time as a child and mistook it for a large and very friendly Wailord. Wailmer and Wailord in Pacifilog culture as seen as ‘Kyogre’s Children’ and are sacred animals. Trainers can commune with them and if they see fit, invite one onto their team via battling or other methods, but the people of Pacifilog will take 0.000% of your shit if you hurt or try to force these creatures to do anything they don’t want. If a Wailmer comes with you, it’s because they want to.
When Archie finds religion in prison, he digs into that memory of communing with Kyogre as a child, studies old text and comes across one describing Primal Reversion, and the rest is Hoenn History.
I liked the idea of Primal Reversion literally reversing Kyogre who under normal conditions is based off an Orca/modern tooth whale, into a Basilosaurus/primitive whale.
So on New Year’s Eve my brother challenged me to a triple rotation battle in ORAS. Now I had only just gotten the game on Christmas so I wasn’t anywhere close to beating the game and my pokemon were seriously under leveled. However since the pokemon are just automatically bumped to lvl 50 for the battle I figured, eh why not?
HOWEVER my brother decides to pull a dick move and has his entire party be NOTHING BUT FULLY TRAINED LEGENDARY POKEMON. TWO OF WHICH WERE PRIMAL GROUDON AND MEGA RAYQUAZA.
His legendary team completely destroyed my first 5 pokemon.
I was down to my very last pokemon, a Lombre I had named Skip.
I decided I was gonna lose anyway, but I wasn’t gonna go down without a fight.
So I used Teeter Dance, which is a move that confuses the opponent’s pokemon. Doesn’t do any damage tho.
LITERALLY EVERY SINGLE POKEMON HE HAD KILLED ITSELF. NOT A ONE ACTUALLY ATTACKED SKIP.
