One of the reviews of my Pokemon game adaptation fanfic in the past complained that my portrayal of Pokemon were like robots with no personalities and said that "Pokemon are people too" or at least something along those words.
Let's forget about my fanfic and apply this to everyone: which portrayal of Pokemon do you prefer? As the wild creatures most of them are based on that act on instinct and less on emotion or as creatures that act more like humans than animals, especially when domesticated? I honestly like both.
What do you think?
