Game text: "EEVEE's edgelord-ness sharply increased!"
Also, this is basically how we came up with this comic:
Me: "Hey, doesn't Gladion's name sound like an Eevee evolution?"
Sarah: "Yeah it does. Weird."
Sarah: "Let's make that a comic."
A very simple premise with a very stupid joke, but it's actually kinda refreshing, all things considered.
