Okay, so the Europeans have had some time to play this game and witness the story unfold, while the Americans have just got the chance to, and some might know already. When I have an encounter with N, I can't kelp but feel like what he is saying is right. Especially, when I think that the "bond" between a trainer and Pokémon could possibly be Stockholm Syndrome. For those who don't like to click links:
The bolded phrase really seems to scream "Pokémon Battles!" to me.In psychology, Stockholm syndrome is a term used to describe a paradoxical psychological phenomenon wherein hostages express adulation and have positive feelings towards their captors that appear irrational in light of the danger or risk endured by the victims, essentially mistaking a lack of abuse from their captors as an act of kindness
Obviously, "Team Plasma" as a whole is not right, as they abduct trainer's Pokémon. However, N as an individual has definitely become Pokemon's most interesting villain, because there are quite a few people I have spoken to who agree to him (although not on the same level).
What do you think? Do Pokémon develop Stockholm Syndrome, thus becoming attached to their trainers, and is N's philosophy right?
