What? You two just confused me.
No, no. It's like this.
There's a bomb in a building, your character is in the building, but doesn't know there is a bomb.
You, the player, knows there is a bomb. Meta-gaming is using OoC knowledge, such that the character the player controls says that there's a bomb even though the character doesn't actually know there's a bomb.
I'm saying we can use meta-gaming, because the characters know about Pokemon in their world, and know something of it, like most Starters evolve at level 16. Meta-gaming, because the characters are sucked into a Pokemon game. They have meta-gaming knowledge.
