The first thing that came to mind when Touya set his eyes on the Guild was that it reminded him of a magical anime that also relied on such establishments, although this one was much, much bigger. And to see it with his own two eyes just made the whole thing more impressive, but he also was much smaller. Coming to terms with the height loss was a daunting task for sure. Luckily for the Riolu, this world seemed to accommodate creatures of all sizes. Ah, what did the pink stuffed toy call it again? "Pokemon?" They were called Pokemon.
Like a rip off of Digimon or something.
Maybe there was a similar line of logic. "Mon" might mean "monster", but what does the "Poke" stand for? Even if he traveled through a disc, nothing here seemed to hint that the world was made of data. At least everyone spoke English, but it didn't look like humans existed at all, though he had come across a few creatures that resembled humans in some way. Oh, and also none of their names ended with "mon". He furrowed his brows, deep in thought. His blue paws made it difficult to create some sort of journal to keep track of all the new information, but at the very least everyone spoke English and was using the Latin alphabet. Perhaps this was still a "game", after all? Or did the gods simply take pity on him? His mind was abuzz with trying to recount everything and observing his surroundings, taking note of all the strange forms and shapes and...
God, how many "Pokemon" were there?!
There were families, sure, but he could probably count fifty or more species as he walked through the streets of whatever this place was called (he forgot). Maybe it was like Digimon after all, which meant that this was going to be a pain in the ass to memorize. Ugh. Okay, focus on getting to the Guild first. He had to stop and ask some stall owners along the way to find it, but it was also a good test to see if they were NPCs or not. Well, it would be hard to figure out from one question, but he did watch for their reactions and nuances...
So far things looked really really realistic. He pursed his lips.
Sure, being in an actual isekai was quite exciting, but there was so much he didn't know about this place that it was more of terrifying than anything. Did he only have one life? Were there hidden stats? Elements? How could he even fight? Did he possess anything inherent to defend himself? What if he had to arm himself? How did the armless Pokemon arm themselves then??
By the time he got to the Guild's door, his nerves were completely wracked. "Hello?" it looked quite busy inside when he pushed it open. The lobby had more species that he didn't recognize and animated chatter. With his tail drooped (a feeling that he was still getting used to, but somehow felt natural at the same time), he would take a few, cautious steps in, wondering where the counter was.
