Breeding is easier than ever in Pokemon X & Y--and you know what that means, right? More people have picked breeding up, which inevitably led to more not-quite-perfect reject Pokemon. And the more you think about what these imperfect Pokemon have to go through, the more depressing the whole situation seems.
Now that Pokemon introduced Wonder Trade — which lets you put up a Pokemon for trade with a stranger — it means that many people dump their undesirable Pokemon on the service. It's an easy way to get rid of them. But from the Pokemon's perspective, well — it's kind of mean! Can you imagine how many times a Pokemon might go back into Wonder Trade before finding an owner that wants it?
Here's a comic from Renee P. on Tumblr that illustrates what I mean:
At least this has a happy ending, though....maybe I'm just a pessimist, but I don't think most Pokemon are as lucky as Bulbasaur :(
