Oh, about Ho-Oh: basically, I wanted to drive home the fact that the Pokemon world is totally alien to Greg. So, why not use a Legendary sighting? Because he doesn't even know they exist, they come across as strange. Its really like this:

Normal Pokemon World Inhabitant: "Holy Arceus, its Ho-Oh. That's the most beautiful once-in-a-lifetime sight ever."

Greg Thomas: "What the hell is that?!"

Also, note about padding: When writing this fic, my word count being too low was a constant worry. I thought that if my fic was too short, people would think it sucks.
