I mean, personal experiences do open up eyes. I did once meet an abusive pet owner who is also an insufferable narcissist. Had to call the cops on them. I do understand your point in this being a cliche (especially when they lack any nuance and are just two-dimensional bullies), but don't dismiss real-life cruelty. There are indeed people like that in real life and they're more common than you think. And some never got their comeuppance.Overly rude trainers are kind of a pet peeve of mine in fics. Not that there aren’t people like that in real life (or even in canon), but a character whose entire role is composed of insulting the protagonist, ridiculing everyone else’s skills and the way they treat pokemon and brutalizing every opponent, it becomes way too obvious that this isn’t a character so much as an aritificial tool to try forcing catharsis on the reader when the asshole inevitably gets everything they stand for pounded into the dirt later on.
Most likely yes, like real animals do. If they ingest fermented food or drink alcohol, they can display unusual behavior like making loud noises and making uncoordinated movements. Smaller animals with small livers tend to get drunk rather easily, while larger animals with larger livers can resist the effects. Some animals live on fermented foods and do not get impaired.Would pokemon be capable of drinking like humans do?
Berries are a major thing in the Pokemon world and may ripen. If they get too ripe, the sugars can convert to alcohol. So it's fair to assume that alcohol can indeed make Pokemon drunk.
By extension, any Pokemon can be like this as it's clear all individual Pokemon possess a personality (unless it's legendary, which there is 90% of the cliche'd "behold my majesty, mortal! Fear me for I am all-powerful!") Legendaries behaving more modestly can be a major breath of fresh air.A Lucario can be cunning or rash. Like the one who I travel with in game.
