George had never been a very outgoing person. He had always felt the most comfortable on his own. However, this did sometimes mean he was lonely. He wished he had the courage to be less shy. In Hammerlocke he met a child who wanted to tell his girlfriend he loved her but was scared, so he asked George to lend him an Applin to act as a symbol of his love. With the Pokémon by his side he was able to awkwardly express his feelings to the girl he loved. George was inspired by the kid's courage and wondered if with Pokémon by his side he could have that same courage?
It has been trickier than I anticipated juggling two games at once.
