EDIT: I've had this up for a while now, so let me add some stuff here.
The idea is how dose a person successfully take care of Chandelure without it hurt the trainer or the other Pokemon.
I have already learned somethings:
- Life energy grows back (evidenced in the anime)
- Chandelure CAN eat other things (evidenced in the games)
Facts about the kind of work I'm trying to create:
- Pokemon are not evil
- The Chandelure isn't going to kill anyone
- The Pokemon are depicted as pretty much sentient creatures, not animals, so the Chandelure has it's own personality
- The Chandelure is quiet and gentle
- The trainer and the Chandelure get along
Okay, having established that, please feel free to read the original post below.
As it says at the end, the idea of the topic is, "How do trainers take care of their Chandelure?"
Hello everyone!! I just joined and decided I should go ahead and post these questions of mine.
(Warning: It's 1:40am where I live, so I might fall asleep, but I'll be back!!)
So I'm working on my own Trainer character and her Pokemon family. She is a Fire Type Specialist and I am giving her a Chandelure.
But I was wondering for the sake of any stories I create, what is to be expected when owning a Chandelure, in your opinion?
They, along with it's unevolved forms, feed on "life-energy", or in some sources, "souls".
So do they do this indiscriminately?
Does this cause permanent damage? (Likely not since after it happened to Team Rocket, they were back to normal... I guess souls... regenerate?)
I know in some sources it's implied that some do this to their own trainers... Do they think this is okay? Do they just maybe not have a close relationship with their trainers?
I guess knowing the circumstances would help:
My trainer lives on, and helps run a place called "Sunny Day Sanctuary".
She is a good trainer and treats her Chandelure well, like all her pokemon. I don't assume the Chandelure would want to harm her or its friends, but it DOES need to eat.
So what would happen? It is surrounded by many, many living creatures. Assuming "life-energy" replenishes, and it just nibbled a little here and there from everyone at the complex, would it make a difference?
Bottom line (tl;dr): What is it like owning a Chandelure, in you opinion?
