You'd have to have a plot reason as to why these characters are brought in from the real world instead of being, for example, really sheltered native citizens of the Pokemon world from a canon region.

    Didn't mean for everyone to be from the real world, haha. That wouldn't really fit what you are going for... although then again it's not something that doesn't have its own potential in a story, hmm.
    That makes a lot more sense. I kinda figured that them acting out of place would be a constantly recurring theme from the start. I didn't, however, think much about motivation to get back, homesickness, etc. but it's definitely something that will be on my mind more now.
