Meowth is a Pokémon that did not originally live in the Alola region. They were sent to the royal line as an offering from another region, and only a select few could have them as partners. The Meowth in Alola are distinct for their cunning and their great pride. Two things they really hate—a wound to their pride and dirt on their coins. If either one happens, they fly into hysterics! It’s said that the Meowth that were offered to the royal family lived a life of luxury and pampering, which led them to have a selfish and prideful attitude. This caused Meowth’s form to change. The once-rare Alolan Meowth became feral when the monarchy was destroyed, and they have now become regular Pokémon, seen as commonly in the Alola region as elsewhere.
May I draw attention to this part in particular…
The once-rare Alolan Meowth became feral when the monarchy was destroyed
Wait, what? A monarchy destroyed? That begs all sorts of questions. Was this recent? Was this in the distant past? And the wording, “was destroyed,” seems to imply force by an outside entity– was there a revolution? Or was it the government of another region? What replaced this monarchy?
Remember that Alola is, very obviously, based off of Hawaii, in appearance and culture. Does this mean its history is inspired by Hawaii, too?
If it is, that raises even more questions. Because the entity that overthrew the monarchy in real-life Hawaii was, well…
I want to tell you this, he’s the most amazing CEO in Korea I have ever seen. He sacrifices himself for his family, so severely. 90% of CEOs in Korea are just trash. They just want to suck the kids, I can’t feel that they want to make them grow. But Jay Park is different. You can see clearly that he really takes care of his people. He gifts necklaces [to his artists], lets many of them feature on his album…. and he’s hustling. He writes it in his lyrics ‘I can suffer from hardships a little bit longer’. After I saw that lyrics in his recent album, I could see clearly what’s on his mind. He has power in the kpop business or hiphop scene and he could abuse his power as much as he wanted, but I can see him adopting the regular tactics only. That’s why I think he’s the most amazing CEO in Korea I have ever seen.
