      Mabosstiff is Arven's mom

    • 5 days ago
      Anonymous

      People shit on Arven for this but at the same time, by his own admission, he resented Sada/Turo for being entirely absent from his life, leaving Mabosstiff to be his only true "familial" connection. Learning that his parent died long ago must've been shocking for sure, but he outright said he hadn't heard their voice in YEARS before the events of the story, so even if he was obviously a bit sad I can't blame him for trying to move on as quickly as possible.

        I think people that play pokemon sometimes don't have a basic understanding of human emotions. The way it's presented it's made obvious that he doesn't have a relationship with his parents at all, and he already suspected something was wrong. So when it all goes down he is probably a bit fucked up but not in a way where you'd burst into tears.

          If you read the journals scattered throughout the research labs it stats that Arven's dad left shortly after he was born and she started to resent him.

            Started to resent arven or his dad/mom? Plus, the journal where sada/turo first bring back the cover legend says that they thought they were going to be blessed with one new life to treasure, but got two of them instead. The Professor loved Arven, but not in a meaningful way.

                Funny how the AI is more loving to the son than the actual mother. Makes you think. Then again, AI was working with logic and Sada is in too deep with her fantasy.

          The prerendered cutscenes for the most part actually look decent (except for one where the audio desyncs for no reason). Everything outside of that is janky. They probably did these early on once they got the Ed Sheeran contract

            if it was pre-rendered your character wouldn't have their customization options showing. These are obviously in-engine

      Who cares if he haven't seen his mother/father for so long. The story should have cared a bit about Arven's character in that climax and that's a fact. At least just from an emotional perspective, the plot destroys all kind of emotion just by letting the ending happen like it does because it literally feels like: "my mother died? Whatever..."

    These scenes were unironically the best part of the game.

      this plot was nice and Arven as a character was good. His story doesn't insert itself every two seconds like Lillie did. And while he's obviously a closed off character at first he's not complete edge like other Pokemon characters that have "tragic" backstories.

      As someone who had to watch my dog waste away due to cancer, his story got to me, too. I'm glad they spent the extra time and effort into actually animating this scene

        His role has nothing to do with Lillie's. He's much more of a side character. His main plot feels like a side quest... And the end is just fast to even care about him.

        • 5 days ago

          they're the same character, the only difference is that Lillie's mom was a helicopter psycho mom because of brain parasites and Arven's mom was a neglectful mom due to her obsessions
          >they both mistreat their children
          >they both have a connection to the box legendary, as do their children
          >they both realize how much their children have grown without them, nearly too late
          at least Arven's story leaves you the fuck alone

            Lusamine wasn't a helicopter mom; she literally viewed her children as objects to be possessed.

        My dog passed away due to cancer a few years back as well. For a while the vets thought she had Cushings disease which they just put her on lifelong meds for. We later discovered it was cancer when we rushed her to the emergency clinic one night after she had a seizure. Had to put her down the next day.

      Same for me. I didn't care about the bullying shit. Penny was garbage and Nemona was ok but a simple story of a dude and his dog was good enough.

    Arven is unironically the most based character in the game. Dude has his entire adventure across the region because he just wanted to make his dog better. Having a sick pet who can barely hold up is fucking miserable.
    I cried a lot. Felt terrible during the battle though, like wasn't this dog on deaths door like 8 minutes ago?

      Same. I really like his character a lot. I'd say he and Nemona are tied as my fave characters with Penny at 3rd from the 3 friends/rivals.

      >Nemona is literally just a battlefag, but she's actually kinda fun to be around
      >has some bizarre interest in you to the point where it feels kinda romantic because she hasn't met a trainer who actually pushed her back in a battle
      >encourages you to keep battling
      >clearly wants you
      pretty based. she was enjoyable for me and less is more in her case. arven is a character who had an actual good story told in this game and i honestly cared for him and his mabosstiff.

      i was expecting to hate these characters but they were good

        Literally speaking from experience. My folks had to basically take in one of my friends and nurse him back to health back in middle school when he had pneumonia because his parents chose taking care of their arthritic wiener dog over him.

            Someone's getting pretty defensive about how much their race loves the taste of dog semen. Most races abuse their kids because of Christianity or having a culture that despises the weak. Doing it for a dog is a purely white thing.
