"It kinda takes something away from t-rex if it has feathers."
You see him moving through the colonnade of tree trunks, huge and impossibly silent. You can’t help but gasp. That was a mistake. He stops and snaps his massive head in your direction, his eyes flashing against his hulking silhouette. He chuffs quietly. You see the plume of breath spill from his toothy jaws. You keep perfectly still. The forest seems to hold her breath. Maybe he doesn’t see you. Maybe that movie was right. But your heart sinks as he fixes his eyes on yours and his lion’s mane of bristly black feathers stands on end. He definitely sees you.

Okay but Never Gonna Give You Up (better known as Rickroll) is actually a really really horrible song for many reasons, which I will better explain under the cut.
Brace yourselves, this is pretty long.
Wow I actually never thought I’d even care about such an old song but jeez
I think about pokemon in non-battle situations a lot. Like pokemon who have been trained/raised to be helpers and assistants than to be battle partners.
Pokemon visiting hospitals to cheer patients up like dogs and cats do. Or ones that help kids learn to read, speak, swim, go through therapy?! Even pokemon who’s abilities help owners with specific disabilities?!
I love thinking of pokemon outside of battle situations.
