what if someone copyrighted the copyright symbol so when you have a copyrighted name or something and you put the copyright symbol there but it’s copyrighted so you have to add the symbol to show that it’s copyrighted and it would just end up looking like this
No Gods or Kings, Only Mon
I find it very interesting how the Twitch Plays Pokemon Crystal narrative has evolved in the shadow of the original, much more popular Red story. at the start of the stream my greatest fear was that the desire to recapture to magic of the original would ruin everything; and while the stream is nowhere near as popular, and perhaps I was right, I think in the end that very problem has created a strong narrative of its own. it’s come out as a sort of meta commentary on sequels and the sometimes overwhelming pressure to be better than the first.
the story still features the same sort of hope and determination the original had, but in a more bitter form, I’ve found. the chat has come to decide that, since Red is the bonus final boss of Crystal, AJ’s quest is ultimately to defeat Red and prove his mortal Pokemon to be stronger than the gods and royals that dominated the previous run - to literally surpass the originals.
all of the four main Pokemon on the party tie into that spectre of the previous quest. Lazorgator is depicted as a cynical and hardened ‘mon who became too strong and had to tough out the chat’s arguments over whether he was ruining the game and had to be released. Brian the Pidgeot is just a normal bird who had to find his own identity in the shadow of the messiah people expected him to live up to. Espeon seeks to unite the team and keep them hopeful, where his predecessor unwittingly drove them apart. and Katie the Dragonair seeks to grow strong enough to challenge All Terrain Venemoth and avenge Lance’s Dragonite.
so in a way I think the second TPP will be just as inspiring as the first, but in a very different way. where the original was about working together to do the impossible, this will be about the perseverance and determination needed to carve your own path in a world guided by the too-high expectations of others. the individuals who continue to lead AJ to victory may have been abandoned by their peers, may have struggled under the intense pressure, but goddamn it, they’re going to stick it out to the end and they’re going to win. nobody can take that from them - not even gods or kings.
