Oh! It’s pretty cool, actually. So Red was the player character in Red/Blue, right? Back then, there was literally nothing left to do once you beat the Elite Four and/or finished the Pokedex except for slowly grinding your team to level 100 (newer generations have side-quests like the Battle Frontier, Contests, etc). By yourself, there’s no way to finish the Pokedex, so all that leaves is level grinding.
Red represents the player character who (before Gold/Silver came out) was stuck with nothing else to do but train his Pokemon. After becoming the Champion, there were no trainers left to beat and so he headed off to Mt. Silver, the place with the highest-leveled wild Pokemon. So he stays there, training and training until Gold/Kris/Ethan/Lyra show up and beat him. After he’s beaten, he leaves, either accepting/being satisfied that there’s someone stronger than him or leaving to make himself even stronger.
It’s just a theory, but it makes a hell of a lot more sense than him just deciding to go live on a mountain for two years.
Oh! Tuxedo Speedo appears in a doujinshi anthology called “Moon Fight.” I don’t speak/read Japanese so I can’t tell you what story he’s in. :(
And he actually doesn’t appear in many panels at all! His appearance is basically the climax of the story (and how can you ever hope to top Tuxedo Speedo?) and it ends soon afterwards. I could only find two other panels he’s in, but they’re fucking hilarious.
Also, from what I can interpret from the story, the girls have gone to the beach and they’ve basically forced Ami into a bikini despite her protests. Of course, she ends up losing her top in the ocean and Tuxedo Speedo arrives to save the day… this time by giving Ami her swimsuit back.
AND HERE IS IS RIDING A DOLPHIN MAGNIFICENTLY INTO THE SUNSET
If it was like that, coupled with her hideous shirt, it would be no wonder why Haruka’s eyes went astray.
I’m actually so happy people actually READ my tags because sometimes I spend forever on them

I think BW is the best game when it comes to story. The developers really focused all of their energy not only into the gameplay but into the story as well. Unlike all of the other games, there are a few running themes (truth vs ideals, black vs white, and the importance of accepting people who think differently than you) instead of just the regular formula of “Beat the Gym Leaders, battle evil team, beat Elite Four.”
I also think they did a great job with N. He’s so sympathetic and relatable! Throughout the game, it’s clear that he’s not bad at all, just misguided. He’s very childlike. Anthea and Concordia, two women who grew up alongside N, say that Ghetsis only brought abandoned and abused Pokemon to N, so he’d get the idea that all Pokemon with humans were suffering. All N wanted to do was end the suffering of the only creatures who had ever loved and supported him and Ghetsis took full advantage of that.
I also love how, in a lot of ways, N is the deuteragonist of Black/White. The game chronicles his journey and eventual redemption, just like how it chronicles the protagonist growing from an inexperienced kid to one of the most powerful trainers in Unova and a hero.
I’ve totally written way too much about this game, haha. But I think B/W are the best Pokemon games, with the exception of B/W 2, which manage to be even greater!
