WRONG, SIR!-The government is a dictatorship, the professor of each region is the ruler of it, notice it's only the professors that go from region to region to talk with other professors? They also kinda lay down the rules. In Platinum, Professor Rowan sends the secret police to stay around you in case you run into any criminals, basically, the professor has it all. :3
It's not just the professor who travels region to region. In Diamond and Pearl, you meet a trainer in Hearthome City who says he came from Hoenn.
Anyway, I have a couple of my own.
-Pokémon Yellow is based on the animé, in which Ash leaves home at the minimum age possible. However, in the game, the Youngster trainers are obviously younger than Ash.Are the Youngsters underage trainers, or does Ash just age very quickly?
-In each town, there are about...4 or 5 houses. And nearly all of them have someone living in them already. However, you find a lot of trainers on routes, more than could fit into the houses, even if people weren't already living in them. So where do the trainers who are out and about live?
-In one episode of the Pokémon animé, some old lady makes muskrat meatballs. Where did she get muskrat meat from?
I'll probably think of more later. But that's all for right now.
