Gender: unknown by all except me (And I'm not telling u)
Country: That one place, on that one continent, on that one planet, in that one solar system, in that one galaxy
Favorite Pokémon: See, I don't appreciate this section because it's subjective. What about the ones that aren't on the list? How would they feel. I love (almost) all Pokemon equally, and will make a stand against discrimination and segregation of Pokemon based on favoritism! Thank you, and be on your way.
Friend Codes: Only to the one who asks, shall I grant this sacred information.

About me: i like things. I've been a fan for an amount of time, and want to buy the new games. In addition to Pokemon, I'm also a huge Legend of Zelda fan, as well as Animal Crossing, and some others I can't remember right now.  Mario's OK: I don't like the story, but Odyssey looks really cool. I will happily get into fan theories and such about My Hero Academia, Black Clover, and especially, Steven Universe.

My Musings of all things, Pokemon and otherwise:

Z-moves are just a consolation prize for Pokemon that can't mega evolve, and mega evolution has so much more to be explored with

Friendship is merely a symbiotic relationship forged between two humans if both see a way of them gaining something, this being a mutualistic bond. Although slightly more rare, friendships may have a bond of commensalism (One gains, the other isn't really affected) or even parasitism (One gains, other is hurt). Thus, humans are no different from the animals we disassociate ourselves with.

To be a hypocrite means that you are becoming someone everyone will hate. The injustice of your hypocrisy is preposterous, and it's really not a great way to make friends, unless someone really likes hanging with total jerks.

I'm actually like you, I feel how Pokémon feel.
All those other people SOS resetting for a shiny Pokémon and sometimes fainting about a thousand mons for just one that is another color!

I see what you mean. However, can we truly call that "Friendship"? The mistreated individual may believe it to be for the best, but can the oppressor believe that too? I feel like it would be pretty near to impossible for someone to think that Mistreating someone is "friendly". I don't know... we've stepped out of concrete ideas.

What do you think?

Cool! I personally have been considering trying out some animation, but haven't yet gotten around to it

Sorry I didn't respond, I didn't see it there until now. Also, I wanted to make animations once apon a time, but I didn't have the materials or enough skill.

"Friendship is merely a symbiotic relationship forged between two humans if both see a way of them gaining something, this being a mutualistic bond. Although slightly more rare, friendships may have a bond of commensalism (Neither is really affected) or even parasitism (One gains, other is hurt). Thus humans are no different from the animals we disassociate ourselves with."

I'd like to debate this.

I agree (mostly) with your first statement. "Friendship is merely a symbiotic relationship forged between two humans if both see a way of them gaining something, this being a mutualistic bond."

However, the parasitic relationship is not friendship. You defined friendship as - "a symbiotic relationship forged between two humans if both see a way of them gaining something, this being a mutualistic bond." You said two things: one, both parties see a way of gaining something, and two, it must be a mutualistic bond.
Mutualistic bonds are mutually beneficial. that means that BOTH parties benefit.  You said that a friendship could involve parasitism. in your own words-"...or even parasitism (One gains, other is hurt)."

That is not a mutualistic bond, and is therefore not friendship.

The commensalism friendship is ALSO wrong.

https://www.britannica.com/science/commensalism

Britannica defines commensalism as - "Commensalism, in biology, a relationship between individuals of two species in which one species obtains food or other benefits from the other without either harming or benefiting the latter."

This means that one benefits, and the other is not affected.

You said - " ...friendships may have a bond of commensalism (Neither is really affected)"

that is wrong. One IS affected positively.

True friendship is beneficial to both parties always. Whether animals can have friendships or not is irrelevant. If the situation is bad for either party, it is not friendship.
