True. But I'd bet the oldest the player characters could possibly be is 15, otherwise you're getting way too far away from the target demographic of the games. Still, that's far too young to make any realistic sense for an adult expert trainer to lose to. The player character has always been considered "special" though and is often credited as being about to connect with their Pokemon in a way other trainers can't. Basically, you're always "the chosen one".Not to get side-tracked from the conversation, but I have been under the impression that the playable character is only 10 years old in a few games. Many of them, based on the artstyle, seem far more likely to be pre-teens or even teenagers (B/W heroes especially).
That's what I'm thinking. UB-02 will be the final boss and appear as Beauty or Expansion depending on which game you play. I don't believe Beauty will be in Sun at all and the same for Expansion in Moon.I'm under the impression that Beauty form only exists in Moon, while the other only exists in Sun. Kind of like having Latios/Latias split between games. It was mentioned that there are going to be a lot of differences between Sun and Moon, even if they are just superficial differences. Something about day and night having an effect.
I forgot to mention this before and I'm not sure if anyone else has brought it up, but Lillie, Gladion, and Lusamine all have blonde hair and green eyes. There's good chance they could be related, especially with the Ultra Beast forms resembling the three of them.
