This game’s fucking item descriptions tho
Frozen/Mean Girls crossover
This is my most favourite thing in the world
"A heads up to everyone who is or has has been feeling sick after Katsucon, it has been confirmed that one of the flu strains that has made people sick is the H1N1 virus. If you’re feeling sick or have flu symptoms, PLEASE get to a doctor to prevent further spread of the virus. As a word of advise, if you’re feeling sick or running a fever, you should not be exposing an entire convention to your illness. Stay in bed, drink plenty of fluids and get some rest. No con is worth exposing thousands of people to a virus."
A member of staff just passed away due to this virus after contracting it at con.
Wanted to give a heads up to my followers—I’m absolutely appalled that someone would bring H1N1 to a convention. If you’re sick, stay at home or stay in your room or something—cons are NOT amazingly essential parts of your life to the point where it’s necessary to not miss one at all costs.
Shit I checked to see if this was real and it is. The victim was Christine Larson. I found her families hospital bill fundraising site and everything.

thinking about disability and mental illness in the pokemon world is pretty wild
a slowking who is always calm and ready to help when their trainer is having an anxiety attack or a breakdown
a blissey who lays its happiness eggs to help its trainer with depression
a gardevoir who uses its psychic black hole ability to prevent its trainer from getting sensory overload
a lucario reading its epileptic trainers aura to watch out for episodes
a munna helping a trainer with insomnia avoid bad dreams and sleep peacefully
a sylveon using its ribbons to calm someone who’s been badly triggered
And what about pokemon trained to help blind trainers, like zubat, golbat and crobat or other cave pokemon, as well as poochyena and houndoom like service dogs
And psychic pokemon or unknown aiding deaf trainers with communication
I’m also fascinated with the idea of more humanoid pokemon learning sign language to communicate with deaf trainers. If meowth can learn to talk, mr. mime and others can certainly learn the pokemon regions equivalent of signing
a ditto mimicking the shape of a wheelchair so that their trainer will have assistance (pokemon powered!) on hard hills or when they get tired
or fighting types that are used not for fighting but as vital assistants for accessibility and mobility- machamp pushing wheelchairs and effortlessly lifting said chairs (and occupants) over steps; hariyama cradling their trainers in one hand when they get fatigued or chronic pain starts up, and carrying them around gently; hitmonlee with their super-steady legs and fighting-honed balance providing a good support to trainers with balance issues.
or nonverbal trainers that rely on their psychic pokemon (or pokemon like lucario) to translate their thoughts telepathically to other people when they can’t form words or signs
or autistic trainers with dragon types that sit next to them and allow their trainers to stroke their scales, the bumpy-smooth texture perfect for stimming with
minccino being absolutely vital to keeping the spaces of asthmatic trainers clean to not trigger an asthma attack; those same trainers cuddling with a water type that keeps their environment at the right humidity and temperature while they sleep to aid their breathing
