yAy thanks for another ask! I know some people like to discuss disorders among the dexholders, but I’ve never really thought about it so these answers are off the top of my head.
Yellow seems a bit autistic since she’s so quiet and shy. When I was younger, I was a lot like her (no I don’t have powers that can heal animals, I wish) but I was really shy. So my teachers thought I had autism (I don’t so that doctor’s visit was a waste). So maybe mild autism for Yellow.
Ruby is OCD. You can’t convince me otherwise. Look up OCD in a dictionary and you’ll see his picture. All jokes aside, he’s very obsessive and compulsive and a neat freak, so don’t even try telling me he doesn’t have OCD. (I love you, Ruby, but you’re just too much sometimes :,(
Black probably has ADHD. The hyperactivity and the lack of focus definitely makes it seem that way. But it dosen’t look too severe since he demonstrates immense focus on battling and studying pokemon.
Here are a few extras. I know that they aren’t exactly neurotypical disorders, but I’m not too educated on these so I don’t really know which category they fall into (forgive me if I say something stupid, please :)
Ruby and Sapphire have PTSD from the salemence. Kusaka kinda brushes it off as a normal fear or phobia at most, but getting attacked by a salemence has to give you some kind of trauma.
Pretty much all the dexholders have trauma. Lots of them faced some really horrible stuff that would leave someone traumatized and two big examples are Silver and Green (f). I’m not too sure, but I think Kusaka doesn’t show everyone’s emotional trauma since it’s a children’s book and he doesn’t want it to get too heavy maybe.
So yeah sorry for the fricking essay. This is the first time I write about this and it was fun!
So, I’ve got a lot of favourite characters from spe. DexHolders are Ruby, Sapphire, Gold, Silver (in no specific order) ((and also Black: SKREM™️!))
Other characters are: WALLY! Wallyyyyy!! kOfF™️, Prof. Birch has gained my full admiration after waiting on a tree in a storm for Emerald so yeah (but take care of your damn daughter you IDIOT), and Paka and Uji are just :’),
Easiest to write hmmm… Black comes to me pretty naturally, especially when I’m super hyper and on a sugar rush. So do Gold and Sapphire. I relate to these crazy hyper b*tches so much holy crap.
I’m not in high school/secondary school anymore but I’ll answer it from when I was!
1) Never forgot it. I basically started to do my homework early in the mornings in school and during lunch so I didn’t really forget it. I’d have a bunch of free classes for religion so I did the majority of work there!
2) Never! We never did anything that would’ve made us be barefooted during P.E
3) A few times! Our school was extremely small with a population of about 250 students. The school has cameras everywhere and if you didn’t show up, teachers would easily come looking for you. You didn’t really have anywhere to hide either because the school was small. I spent a lot of time in classes that I knew I could make myself late for for example Art. We showed up with ten minutes left out of thirty for Irish and it felt like a Police interview. We did it a lot for classes like maths because they were a pain in the ass
We are incredibly open to any and all who want to help and work in the field.
We try to make sure we can accommodate anyone of any skill set or capacity.
Some branches in Hoenn have a really great team with some prominent members on the Spectrum.
Of course we will need to do an assessment of each person (physically, mentally, and background) as we do for every person that applies.
So in complete honesty, it won’t matter much if you’re on the spectrum, if you are capable of doing alot of things outdoors and working as a team, of course we try to be as prepared for most situations and conditions.
I believe we had a recruit in school who was prone to Sezures and most of the teachers were well trained for the situation.
So depending on where the individual falls on the spectrum, and so long as they pass the assessments, usually we can accommodate them.
And if someone isn’t able to handel the physical stuff, we need people to help with things like communication, paperwork, or even working with people for educational events.
Every job is super important, even if you think it isn’t.
Communications are the way we rangers get important messages to each other across the region and the world. Without them we would be completely blind.
The paperwork helps us make sure we get funding, clearance to work in specific areas, and allows us to work in the first place. Without them there wouldn’t be a Pokemon Ranger Organization.
And the Education Professionals, they help us spread information that most people lack, and help make the world better for humans and Pokemon.
We need all of the sections of the Ranger Base to be able to work as well as we do.
