Parena or Serecham both equal Serena+Pancham!
"But sometimes I have to ask myself this question. It's true that to us his imaginings are nothing but the inventions of a busy mind. But to him, there simply is no other reality. Furthermore he is happy there.
So why, I ask myself, why in the name of healing him must we drag him painfully into the world of our own reality?"
~Doctor's memo, from Silent Hill 2
One of the criticisms of White is that after Gigi leaves, she apparent becomes "spineless," particularly when she lets Gigi stay with N (if she wants). I hate this notion that if a female character isn't kicking *** or taking name (to be fair, I wish White was shown battling more) and if she ever cries or whatever, she's a "bad character." It's a stigma that forms a bias against femininity in fiction (something Teen Titans subverted well). Quite frankly, White letting Gigi stay with N shows how she has grown since that incident. How's she's letting Gigi have the option of deciding for herself to do other things besides Acting. That's very mature of her and I don't think the old her who was caught up with her work would've done the exact same. This blog post explains other good points.
And I hate how apparently her attire isn't what a "girly girl" would wear. Allow Thomas the Tank Engine to break it down. Plus, if a girl wants to be feminine while wearing denim-shorts, a tank top, a black vest, black/pink shoes and a baseball cap, by all means they can and nobody should tell them to conform to some stereotype to match how they look. Hooray for Feminism!
Let me spell it out for a certain someone who believe that Gigi was "characterized inconsistently." White made Gigi into a movie star and the little Tepig liked it. However, she never got to battle so it hardly occurred to her that she could be the best
that no one ever was jk. That is, until N trapped White and Gigi and had Servine attack. Forced to defend herself, Gigi fried Servine and was shocked by the damaged she done. Then N started telling her how she could be a great battling Pokemon, worthy of the Champion perhaps. With such thoughts and still tasting the sweetness of victory, Gigi naturally thought along the lines of, "He's got a point. Maybe if I give it a shot, I can get better and better."
White wasn't having any of this and tried to get off with Gigi. Gigi couldn't tell White with words and instead hopped into N's lap to say, "Sorry but I want to see if I can do this." It wasn't a very good way to communicate it but it was effective enough to make her point to White (in the worst way, unfortunately). She still liked acting and dancing but she wanted to test herself as a battler. It's not that she suddenly decided she hated acting so much as she decided she wanted to try battling.
And before you say it came out of nowhere, well, that's because it was meant to be a twist and the best kind are the ones that surprise you, making you go, "Gee, when you put it like that..." And there was foreshadowing with White not being able to battle and her not wanting Tep to evolve (meaning Gigi was forbidden at all costs).
