did professor oak, when he first penned that very first entry of his very first Pokedex, when he dare label it The Seed Pokemon, did he let the doubt creep in?
did he let himself wonder — did he belong? did he deserve?
did he pass?
why do we expect to be fully formed and complete before we’ve even started?
does the ditto in disguise fear it won’t be accepted by the others around itself it has surrounded? or does it dive head first, head strong and pigheaded, into all those perilous unknowns until it is accepted?
even professor oak started as just mister oak.
