Do you base any charactes on any real people?Besides May originating as a self-insert-esque character and still having some 'references' to myself, no. Writing real people into a story that happens in the Pokémon world would just feel odd to me.
Is Taylor's Mewtwo2 going to end up like the Mewtwo from the movie, meaning, having his darstardly plans ruins by something stupid like crying?What dastardly plans? Mewtwo² is brainwashed by the Clone Ball to just do whatever Taylor tells him to; if he has any sort of a plan for anything, it's to escape from it, but I'd hardly call that dastardly. Taylor's plans are slightly more so, but only really extend as far as "Win the Ouen League".
Also, I spent most of the chapter WTF-ing over why nobody seemed to find it odd that Taylor was lurking in the rocks spying on them for no apparent reason; when you explained it, it's obvious why May would be expecting him, though I would have thought Mark would have been a bit more miffed when Taylor randomly appeared.I did worry it would strike readers as strange, but thought the revelation of where they'd been worked a lot better afterwards, so I hoped it just wouldn't make people wonder too much before it came to that point. You have a very good point about Mark, though; he ought to be a lot more baffled there and there's plenty of time to describe it. Definitely something to add in.
(And if tyranitar is all about making May happy, why did he disobey a direct order, even if May had previously said the guy had to die?)His reasoning went something like this: May has talked a lot about how much she hates Taylor and how he needs to die; she seemed happy at first when I was advancing on him; she seemed very reluctant to tell me to come back and only did it because he ordered her to; meanwhile, she thought I was just scaring him so she didn't know I was planning something she was going to like; therefore, she'll still be happy when I do it and she won't want me to come back because he'll be dead so she doesn't need to follow his orders anymore.
May's Dad: How did your Meganium die?May's dad: It… it was an accident. We were in a battle against this Typhlosion, and we were desperate to win, and… it's painful to remember.
Mark: What sparked your interest for legendary Pokémon? Also, how have your opinions on legendaries changed during your journey?Mark: I dunno. I've just always found them pretty fascinating.
Sandslash: Have you ever had interest in taking part in a Pokéathlon or any other kind of event?Sandslash: Maybe. I've never tried it before.
Gyarados: Do you prefer to be in your Pokéball or out of it, in the water.Gyarados: I'd rather be out of it, but being in the ball isn't bad. It's just… stasis, where you feel fine but you can't do anything.
Gyarados (Again): Why did you eat those kids? They could have saved you!Gyarados: I ate them because I was hungry and they were too temptingly close.
Mew: Who was the last Destroyer?
Mew: Who was the last Destroyer?Mew: …I do not know. The Destroyer has always been a mystery.
May: Do you, in any way, blame yourself for Taylor's… (Passing? Moving on? Trip to Kindly Old Man Simmons's Farm? Sentence to the Great Metaphorical Illegal Cloning Facility in the sky?)death?May: …
Alan: Do you, in any way, blame May for Taylor's Untimely passing to Kindly Old Man Simmons's Great Metaphorical Illegal Cloning Facility in the Sky?Alan: Well, right now I don't even really know what happened.
Chaletwo: What was the Dragon who survived supposed to do then?Chaletwo: I didn't think it that far at the time. As I keep saying, young and stupid.
Mitch and Sparky:Have you ever had the misfortune of a HUMAN dying in front of you and you couldn't do a thing about it?Mitch: All too often. Poisons claim many lives even after the victims are taken to me.
Mitch and Sparky (again): If you were told that your town would be starved by earthquakes and pestilence assuming you don't give up your Gym and Pokémon to some random ten year old who was completely unqualified for the job, would you do it?Mitch: Depends on who was telling me that and why.
Ms. Grodski: Were you glad when Mark left on his Pokémon Journey?Mrs. Grodski: I'm glad to be rid of him, but I can't say I'm glad his parents let him on the journey. When will he learn if they just give in to him?
Molzapart: What evidence do you have to prove that you're not the Destroyer, hmm?Molzapart: Evidence? Why would I be trying to stop the War if I were the Destroyer? That theory is nonsense from the ground up.
Chaletwo: Same as above.Chaletwo: What? That's ridiculous. I'm trying to stop the War. I'm not the one that needs to present evidence here. When you produce baseless conjecture like that, the burden of proof is on you.
Mew: Same as above.Mew. …I suppose there is no such evidence. But I am not the Destroyer.
Nurse Joy: When you see an injured / dead Pokemon, does it make you feel worse than seeing an injured / dead human?Nurse Joy of Stormy Town: Well, I suppose there is a sense of responsibility when there's a Pokémon, since keeping them healthy is my job, but injured or dead humans are no laughing matter either.
Sparky: What's the weirdest thing anyone's ever ordered at your restaurant. Besides, of course, a Scyther ordering a bowl of beer.Sparky: Usually people just order things off the menu, so I can't say there has been anything particularly weird, can I?
Mark: Hypothetically, if you were to enter a tournament that was to force you to only use one of your Pokemon, which would you choose?Mark: I guess Dragonite. I mean, he's really strong and knows a lot of versatile moves.
May: See above.
Taylor (while being mauled): Could you please describe what's going through your mind right now?You can't ask dead characters, even if you specify "while they were still alive"; furthermore, I imagine all that was going through his head was pure terror and he'd have been a bit too preoccupied to explain it to you.
