Pokemon are capable of earning a living like most humans, they are able to work, get money and buy a place among them if they please. Their fast learning nature makes them desirable workers as well and there are only a few requirements for them to be accepted:
-The pokemon must know the most common language in that zone or region (English for Unova, French for Kalos, and so on)
-The pokemon must not have a trainer, otherwise they could be easily summoned at very inconvenient moments.
-pokemon on their second stage of evolution or above will have more chances of getting a job, along with more variety. Though charming, the size and lack of strength and ability of a first stage pokemon can get in the way sometimes.
More will be added on if necessary, but for now, these are the most important rules.
I like this head canon a lot. I just would like to add 2 things that expand on some things.
- Adding on to the language head canon: Kanto= Japanese, johto= Chinese, Sinnoh= eastern Europe languages, probably Russian or German, not sure on Hoenn yet. Tempted to say Portuguese or Italian
- In order to avoid capture from any human co-worker or human in general, they can have a nanochip injected, that kind of operates like one you can get for your pets, only it prevents pokeballs from working. Even though Pokemon can still be abducted by other means, it does eliminate the usual big problem for Pokemon.
hmm this is a nice addition! ovo
The idea of a chip that can disable pokeballs is pretty good~! I’ll keep that in :D
And about the regions, they all seem pretty fitting! Sinnoh was partly inspired by a Russian island so it makes sense ovo Meanwhile Hoenn, It’s a tropical island, with harsh environments, an active volcano, and half of it it’s underwater >w> sounds a lot like Hawaii .w. my mind is not very clever on this one.
