Thread: Giovanni's illness?

  1. #1

    Default Giovanni's illness?

    What happened with that? Was it ever brought up again? He was at the brink of death, so how did he get better? I can't remember.

    Celebi brought him medicine to cure it.

    It's a reference to the legend of the Pokeathlon, where a strange illness struck Johto and one person and their three Pokemon overcame several obstacles to find the cure.

    Did we ever find out what he HAD?

    No. Probably something fictional, given that random magic herbs and not human medicine fixed it.
    Here's hoping for Shiny Tapu Bulu, Tapu Lele, and Tapu Fini events that come stateside. Also, why can't there be more rare Vivillon pattern events?!

    He had a deadly case of Notarealdiseaseitis.

    A common affliction in fiction. You can easily come up with symptoms and thus come up with a cure just as easily.

    In the end, it doesn't really matter. It was basically a plot device to fuel his motivations in FRLG and has since been cured.

    Giovanni has the strongest desires and ambition for leadership, will dominate and reign, terrorize and subject the weak to the cruelty of his malice and judgement's fist. Escaping from the game corner, and rolling into all of those acentric directions from the power arrows, even mildly implemented in his gym in Viridian City is enough to get you dizzy and sick, beaming everywhere on those escalators of the future.

    Team Rocket ever makes any progress with Jessie and James, so a little Togepi being all Giovanni ever got won't make his misery recover.

    Will we make it through victory road? If so, then our last task towards freedom would be to checkmate the dark-sided King at the Game's highest stage for the win! Happiness isn't perfect until it's shared, so let love lay the foundation and point the way!

    Wow, it's been awhile since I read any chapter with Giovanni in it. I forgot he had a illness. It was cured in HGSS? No wonder I didn't remember it. Still I'll be looking forward to see what he does if he comes back in the next chapters.
