>Suddenly unovian elite 4 in Alola
..um, why?...

>>50791376
why not?
>>
>>50791376
Everyone needs a vacation
>>
>>50791378
I mean is nice having cameos, but I feel this has some meaning, some joke that only japs understand, or something like this.

anon he lost everything

Also we didn't have any cameo in SwSh, not even Looker/Cynthia, I mean even LGPE had Mina

Debt collectors.

More proof that SwSh is the worst game.

Yeah, dude's on the run and Alola is remote enough that nobody would recognize him on broad daylight.
>>
>>50791512
He also outright gambles (a simple coinflip but still counts as betting) with you in-game, showing he's still an addict. Wouldn't suprise me if he got caught and kicked out of the league until he gets his shit together.

did grimsley really lose everything in universe or is this a meme?

>In Pokémon Black, White, Black 2, and White 2, Grimsley appears as an Elite Four Trainer of Unova. He is the son of a distinguished family that fell into ruin. As a result, he developed a gambling addiction.
whoa, its true
>>
>>50791376
Man Unova really has it really bad when it comes to highest positions in the pokemon league.
Grimsley's a gambling addict
Marshall's a nigger
Caitlin's borderline narcoleptic
Shauntal's probably got the worst fashion sense in the pokemon worlds history
And then people wonder why a hobo like N managed to rise to the top.
>>
>>50792115
Alola is worse, they have a child in it

20th anniversary cameo, it ain't that deep
>>
>>50792115
At least people remember them, being an Elite four is suffering since most people don't even know you exist.
Even gen1 elite four are forgettable and bland.
>>
>>50791408
I mean SwSh IS not canon after all.
>>

All you need to do is be hot and sexy

God forbid they didn't want any of the new characters to be overshadowed by CYNTHIA or UNOVA
>>
>>50791409
She's there to look for shit in the Abyssal Ruins because she's a mythologist and archaeologist.
Play the damn games.
>>
>>50792711
lol, the nucharacters were pretty good though
probably the highlight of the fucking mess SwSh is, really

I tend to remember most of them. Though I will admit Sinnoh E4 aren't really memorable. Took till BDSP to remind me of their blandness. Which is funny because I played DP religiously.
>>
>>50792719
And he's there to do vacation shit in the most vacation shit place in poke-USA, play the damn games.
>>
>>50792115
The E4 position in general sucks
>perpetually known as playing second fiddle to the actual strongest trainer in the region
>only job is to stay at the league and wait for trainers instead of gym leaders who are pillars of their communities, nobody in or out of universe knows who they are
>can't even challenge the champion like gym leaders can, just have to hope the current champion fucks off and you get promoted upward
>if literally any other member of the E4 decides to leave for a bit you're out of a job for the foreseeable future
>don't even have a bracket in the PWT
I liked Unbound's take on it where they had a racist la creatura mutt, a literal corpse, a literal child, and a furry coomer running the E4 to show how dysfunctional and shitty it would actually be
>>
>>50791376
AlolaPersian catussy
>>
>>50791376
He gambled his fortune away. Again! He's also a very popular character.
>>
>>50791409
2 Reasons
Abyssal Ruins, she mentions it
and the fact that Caitlyn was part of the Battle Frontier in Gen 4 but is native to Sinnoh as an Elite 4 so they probably wanted another Gen 4 character.
>>
>>50791376
Dude lost all his money on loot crates. He needs the vacation to unwind

>Gambling addict
>Win a vacation to Hawaii/win money and take a vacation to Hawaii
>>
>>50791408
Charizard (from Kanto) made a cameo in SwSh
>>
It is interesting how he was chosen to get a proper story cameo when the likes of Cynthia and Wally are just in the battle tree. It's kinda neat to use underrepresented characters from time to time.
>>
hawaii is part of the USA so Alolah is part of Unova so it makes sense for him to be there
>>
>>50791376
He's on vacation? Alola was literally based on Hawaii. It's a vacation destination first, a region second.
>>
>>50791376
Reference to both Hawaii’s large number of visible homeless who like to hang out at public beach parks and poor/ homeless mainland Americans coming over one way and staying anyways because of the warm weather.
>>
>>50791376
Anniversary game, cameos for every generation. Even a Hoenn Frontier Brain is there and got a somewhat major role in the plot.
>>
>>50795146
Johto/gen 2 got jackshit in the Alola games, every other region got at least one character cameo except Johto. I guess Jasmine getting a new outfit in BDSP made up for that at least.
>>
>>50792493
Flint: The Ronald Mcdonald man would lie to know your location.
>>
>>50792130
Alola's at least had the excuse of being a canonical rush-job.
Only 2 kahunas agreed to it, 1 kahuna just made his niece do it, and Kukui found some bitch at the golf course to fill the last slot.
>>
>>50792115
Also Dark, Fighting, Ghost, and Psychic. These types are something if you group together.
>>
>>50791376
Alola is part of greater unova
>>
>>50791376
Nigger alola is unova

Merriku
>>
>>50791376
Caitlin made her debut in sinnoh.

The unova elite 4 are probably just not actually from unova.
>>
>>50795972
Alola and Unova are both just states in Poke-America. Same with Orre, if it's actually canon.
Same way Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, and Sinnoh are all regions in Poke-Japan
>>
>>50796661
イッシュ is the japanese name of unova which is somewhat an reverse of how a japanese man says US It's supposed to be the name of all of US.
>>

>immigrants in the highest offices
I bet Poke-Lyndon B Johnson is responsible for this.

Unova is part of the Kanto-Kalos country. Alola might be too but at that point Unova is irrelevant. Stop realfagging and play the games.
