Pokeballs- Design and Function
There exists no other technology created by humans that is advanced as the pokéball. This device is capable of reducing physical objects- living and inanimate, into condensed and computer-coded soups of atomic particles and then casting out and rebuilding the object. It is an unparalleled technological feat that has changed an entire nation and set widespread and unpredictable precedent. What gives this device its reputation is that it can particalize living animals, and reconstruct them into the exact same condition, and the animal can carry on with its life. In the Pokémon Nation, these innocent looking devices have become a symb

The Creator's Game
 Rain splashed at the wide window. Lightning flashed, brightening up the office, showing the silhouette of a man.

The first thing he noticed was the pepless fan rotating just enough to move hot air and the smell of grease from one side of the restaurant to the other. No one came for the food, or at least that’s what he assumed upon sight of the sticky red tablecloths and French fries that speckled the checkered floor. That and the fact that he was the only soul in sight.            He walked up to the bar and squinted at a sign asking customers to “Please seat yourself or ring for service.” What kind of café required its custome

The "indeed" seems to emphasise things more, in a way... as well as the fact that it hints at something deeper, as if it were a given fact?
