I've sang so many praises of Sun & Moon since it's release and still find new things I love about it this much later. Sun and Moon really changed my favorites lists of many things in the series, and these three right here are such a big part of that.

:icongladionplz:O w   T h E   h O n E d G e:icongladionplz:

Gladion, Silvally and Type: Null are some of my new all-time favorite characters in the series history. It's interesting being able to use the word character on the Pokemon here, too, cause that's what they are. I love them so much!!! It's probably no secret how much I have a love for scientific abominations that just need a hug, it's kind of my thing haha I use it in so many of my own characters!! And heck, my number 1 favorite Pokemon of all time is in one; GENESECT! Type: Null caught my interest immediately upon his reveal and I never shut the heck up about it. Whether it was speculative hype about it's origins clear ties to Arceus and it's possible role in the plot, or just me talking about how cute it is.

(Seriously imagine what Nulls look like when they're newborn babies... DOES AETHER PUT the suppressor helmets on them and they grow into them so they're OUTRAGEOUSLYoversized?!?! My heart! WAH!)

The game's actual use of them couldn't have made me happier. I love everything about Gladion and his relationship with Null. It's so well directed the way you can sense just how important they are to one another, and you can fill in the blanks of what their three year journey together has been like. I love that you don't learn how a Type: Null evolves into a Silvally until you get one of your own (I love that a Null starts with absolute zero friendliness too, what a great detail) The beauty in the portrayal of their story is that we don't see much of it but glimpses and bits here and there mentioned, it's left to our own imagination, but we are given such adorable context clues that show he's no the little edgelord friendless jerk he wants you to see him as, I saw that little bed in the hotel room! You can't hide what's inside!! Null is to Gladion what Nebby is to Lillie, and it's beautiful. If anything, their bond seems somehow stronger considering the bulk of it is left to our own interpretation and personal headcanon. And considering Lillie and Nebby made me legit cry multiple times, it says a lot about Gladion and Null haha! Best friends forever!!! I'm so happy they can life their lives to the FULLest together now.

As a personal aside, I still am SRing for a Shiny Null THIS late I'm well past the one thousand resets but I will get you one day little guy!!! I'm going to name you Type: Loved and let the name really earn itself.

I FEEL YOU SO BAD

I dunno how Gladion could be such a little edgelord honestly haha after spending three years with Type: Null as your best friend I feel like I'd be the happiest person on the planet!! ASKLDKLMA I guess it didn't really like him much though and clawed him all the time... God, considering it becomes so sweet as Silvally I BET IT LOVES HUGS AND CUDDLES I'm the same with what you said about lumping em together, I love em both so much that I kind of just count them as the same entity when I put them in my top 5 favorite Pokemon now haha! GOD THEY'RE PRECIOUS............

THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOOOOO MUUUCH AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHSKDKASMLD

THANK YOU SAPPH!!! I'm really happy you think it worked out good, I wanted to do something rainbowy to represent all Pokemon Types because of Silvally's RKS System discs but was worried it'd look awful, it was hard figuring out how to make the colors not be an overload! XoX I'm so glad you think it looks this good!!! ;v; THANK YOOUUUU!!!

I think Silvally must be my new favorite Pokemon.

But Luxray will still be my all time favorite.

It's really hard for me to judge Null and Silvally against each other, honestly. I sometimes lately like toclump them together as one in my favorites list cause they technically are the same animal just with the repressor helmet broken off. That said, I fell in love with Type: Null and Silvally SO MUCH that they are seriously in my top five favorites EVER!!! With Genesect, Celesteela, Armaldo and Bastiodon!

Wow Luxray is such a cool pick for a fav!!! I can see a lot of resemblance with him and Silvally actually, I bet he has some genes from one. XD

THE BEST PART TO ME is considering Lusamine funded the darn things was it modeled after herself, god she's obsessed.
But at least she earned the right to narcissism.

Heh, my housemates at uni were all studying for a Marine Biology degree, so we had the running joke that "loves jellyfish more than her children" was the most relatable motivation yet for a Pokémon villain.

But yeah. That's a family united by unreasonable hairstyles, right there. And I'm glad I'm not the only one who picked up on that adorable little doggy Pokémon bed in Gladion's hotel room. And the fact that the whole species name of "Silvally" is presumably named as such because that's the name the guy came up with for his own companion after it evolved...that's a wonderful detail.
