1. How long do you honestly believe our society, etc would last before it became pure chaos? Why?
2. Which Pokemon(s) would be the most sought after for protection or to be the best partners to use in a world full of Pokemon.
ex: no one would think to use a Dunsparce as a reliable partner in such realistic and drastic conditions.
I honestly feel that our world.. full of sick and disturbed people.. as well as evil-minded individuals, would easily corrupt Pokemon and their abilities, and our society would be destroyed in a matter of weeks, maybe days. Whether it's on purpose or on accident, a lot of people wouldn't know how to handle Pokemon and their potential, so countless things would be destroyed and lead to chain reactions full of disaster and despair.
If I had to choose a few possible Pokemon that would be a reliable partner in mostly any situation, I would definitely ignore the grass types and bug types..
I would probably lean towards a Psychic type that can use telekinesis, etc to control the surroundings; like a Reuniclus or a Alakazam. Since we all know in the anime, Psychics seem ridiculously powerful and can control many aspects. Or I would go a more dominant role and make sure my partner is more awesome than the competition, and can hold it's own.. so something like a Salamence or Lucario.
Legendaries are not really part of the Pokemon choice equation.. as we need to take into consideration there is only suppose to be only a few of each, or even just 1. [just go with it..] So yes.. you can discuss the possibility of people trying to catch them and abuse their universally powerful potential.
Thoughts? Would our society be able to withstand such creatures?
