24. What places are still unexplored in your world?
Many ruins of precursor civilizations, like a joint Alakazam-Metagross civilization, exist dotted throughout the world. Most of these were made by Pokemon but plenty of human ones exist too. These places can harbor dark, forbidden secrets...

25. What do people carry with them on a daily basis in your world?

Pokeballs. Always Pokeballs. Healing items and other supplies for their Pokemon like food are essential too. Pokemon themselves frequently carry items with them into battle.

26. What sorts of art exist in your world?

About the same as in most Earths. There are many Pokemon-themed works of art, often dedicated to certain Legenaries or myths. Of note is the Anistar Sundial in Kalos, which was said tol have been carved from a crystal that came from outer space.

27. How do people get around in your world?

Earth-like modes of transportation all exist to some degree, though usage of cars is reduced significantly. There are also teleporters in some facilities, but they are of relatively limited use. Pokemon-based transportation is commonplace, though of more cultural significance in some regions than others. Some people have access to things like airships as well.

28. What is the cycle of life and death in your world?

Humans live about as long as normal. Pokemon lifespan is much more varied, from slightly less than humans to significantly more or even immortal, but they tend to live longer with human company. Some humans and Pokemon will come back from the dead as Ghost-type Pokemon, causing them to linger longer than usual especially if they still have business in these worlds.

29. How do people communicate with each other in your world?

As with many Earths, cell phones and the Internet are commonplace. Pokemon are known to use these as well as humans. Pokemon are even capable of accessing the Internet and communicating between Pokeballs with an app called Hasslemon.

30. Who’s important in your world?

In Universe 1, I observed mostly the actions of a group of Trainers called the J-Team. They have been in operation for many years, and have, and are still, thwarting various evildoers. They are a colorful and eclectic bunch and I cannot do them full justice here.

In Universe A it's less clear cut who's important to the story. Sometimes it's the Legendaries, sometimes it's a child and his Riolu on the way to becoming a famous hero,.sometimes it's two Plasma grunts bumbling their way into destiny... The list goes on.

Alas my time in these two twin Pokemon worlds has ended, but I have at least something of it to bring with me... A Pokemon called Smoliv has been accompanying me on my travels! They will be good company in the future.

Whose important in your world...

I ran a story where the cast were a group of law fearing ex grunts... In lew of lacking moral compasses, respect for authority (besides fearing how it'd jail them), or higher powers thier important person was designated in group by a daily game of rock paper sissors between the moat powerful trainers on hand. Important nonlethal life death descisions were regulated to a white board and group vote and so many sharpies...
