A rebel is a person who is refusing to submit in one way or another to a certain power.

In the example that this author used it is correct, and, in fact, is a good question to ask. Is the character simply not willing to submit themselves? Or are they trying to change the world?
Oh, dudebot knows they're not the same thing in definition. However, in this context, in this story, they take on VERY similar meanings. It could cause confusion when reading, especially when you need to know what side they stand on in order to properly understand their motives.

And yeah, there are still humans around, but mostly their hiding out in cities, because I'd sure as hell hide if a dragon was patrolling around cracking off Dragon Rage every few steps. X3
Point made. I wouldn't want to be spotted by a dragon. I wonder what's the deal on pokeballs though. Can they not use them anymore? I'm sure you'll probably explain this later. It's just some things that glare out to the dudebot.
