Yet another Pokemon headcanon, hear me out. So the Host probably isn't one for fighting, and he doesn't keep his team in their goofballs because he likes to let them wander. The Host never looks for Pokemon, the Pokemon all just come to him and he enjoys their company. I've also pictured him one day wandering by a lake when suddenly oh shit there's an Uxie following him around. He doesn't try to catch them for power, nor brag about being by them. The Host is just a practical Pokemon magnet.
Um yes?? I’m so for this (and imagine combining this with the kid au so he’s a smol and there’s a big bird pokemon following him around, but not quite close enough for him to sense what it is and one of the others is like “holy crap?? What is that???” The Host is like, “a fearow, I think?” Cue zapdos screeching from the air)
He doesn’t really talk about his encounters so anytime someone stumbles upon him calmly and gently petting Xerneas, they lose it.
