This design was inspired by the genwunner mentality seen in Pokemon and other fandoms. I'll be the first to admit I was a genwunner for quite a long time; it's easy (and tempting) to view the past through a nostalgia filter.
No one in the Pokemon world quite embodies the spirit of がんばって more than our friend Brock, the would-be casanova with a special affinity for the ladies. No matter how many times he's rejected, he picks himself up and doesn't let it get him down! (Except for that one time with Professor Ivy. But we don't talk about that.) ななころびやおき！
