apparently i found a canon trans lady in the battle maison
don’t black belt women exist tho
black belts are an all-male trainer class within the game.
OH duh. right. i took this complete out of context. it’s pokemon.
Reasons I love X and Y
This is just a mis-translation you fuck heads
I hate to break your bubble, but no, it’s not. In Japanese, she says
which literally means “To think I was a Black Belt just half a year ago. Modern medicine sure is amazing!”
as an extra bonus, Black Belts are referred to in Japanese as カラテおう, which means “karate king” and is explicitly male.
(extra extra bonus: she is a known thing in the Japanese fandom and there is (somewhat tasteless) fanart of her.)
tl;dr keep your stupid transphobic assumptions to yourself, moron
the “modern medicine” translation makes it even more obvious
I think about pokemon in non-battle situations a lot. Like pokemon who have been trained/raised to be helpers and assistants than to be battle partners.
Pokemon visiting hospitals to cheer patients up like dogs and cats do. Or ones that help kids learn to read, speak, swim, go through therapy?! Even pokemon who’s abilities help owners with specific disabilities?!
I love thinking of pokemon outside of battle situations.
