the world. I'm convinced of that… The places we are born. The time we spend
living... The languages we speak... We are all different. But the presence of
Pokémon unites us.
We share our lives with our Pokémon and our happiness grows as we all
become greater than we were alone. That is why we can battle and trade with
anyone we choose… Since there is sadness, we can feel joy. When there is
anger, compassion is born.”
