Yeah, that too. It stretches credulity enough that Spirit and Gyarados's trainers happen to travel together.
(Although there is this hidden piece of random headcanon of mine that says that the Electrike whose mother they killed in chapter 34 was one of Raikou's potentials, which, if it had accepted Alan's offer to take it and train it, would have resulted in a perfect trinity of potentials for the three main characters. Which, of course, meant I specifically didn't make that happen.)
Who's your favorite author? What's your favorite book by them? Is it a well known book in Iceland?
I don't really have a single favorite author (of fiction, anyway); there are a lot of books I love. Michael Ende and both Momo
and The Neverending Story
have to go pretty high, though, and I recognize that while there are other books I really love
, those two are better
as literature. They do have Icelandic translations, but I don't think I've actually met anybody here besides my best friend (who introduced me to them) who's read them.
If you could have any superpower, what would you choose? How would you use these powers?
Flying, preferably if coupled with super-endurance (which would also be pretty good on its own). Just for the sheer fun
of it, seriously. Being able to fly places under one's own power is pretty much the ultimate freedom, or maybe after teleportation (which would also be very cool, but not as fun as flying).
If you could exist in the universe of any piece of fiction / time in history, where would you choose?
Pokémon, of course! Who wouldn't want a bunch of cuddly, badass, powerful, awesome creatures as friends you can go on adventures with? Also, some of them can fly.
Though magic of the less restrained kind, such as in Harry Potter, would also be very cool to have. (Plus, flying!)
