As someone who grew up with a younger brother games with co-op are a fond memory that's been lost as online play became cheaper than buying a second controller. The Switch fixes this in the old famicom way by having two controllers, even when they feel a little awkward with the blank space on them.

Kirlia has found a way to play it solo though even she's not sure how...

I keep telling you people!! Is the Tulpa Invasion!! They can play with you somehow and stuff. Plus is a psychological thing, so not farfetched. And I dont mean the duck.

Yeah... fond memories of playing with someone next to you... until they start screen looking. Then friendships end.

No one thinks you mean the duck. When talking of Tulpa, every automatically assumes you mean the rabbit.
I think half the fun of multiplayer games if having your friends beside you as you play. Online play is good and all, but it doesn't compare.

There is just a certain JOY that is lot, when you are not able to laugh and yell at the buddy by your side.

Of course, a CON is seeing the friendships ending right in front of you.

Of course. Glasses Gardevoir is her Shadow the true self. And I am not talking about the ones from Kingdom Hearts series I mean like the ones from the Persona series. A inner form of a person they hide that comes out in physical form.

Is Glasses Gardevoir perhaps a ghost of some kind? Or maybe Dr. Gardevoir just uses telekinesis for the second controller.

@ Not Sure How: She's a Psychic Type Pokemon with an alternate personality/imaginary friend. Heck, she could probably solo the game with just the Psychic Type Abilities, though that would be less fun. The imaginary friend/alternate personality just adds back the complexity of working with someone else.

Huh. Gets me thinking, where are the Snipperclips characters in the outside world?
Darius Drake (Guest) edit delete reply
There probably would be, somewhere, eventually. They would have to have the natural ability to repair themselves at will without issue or true injury, though. And whether or not they have arrived in the Video Game World yet is unknown.

Honestly, I feel like video games aren't as fun anymore without someone to play them with. Even the "destroyer of friendship" games can lead to amazing memories.

Let me hazard a guess and say Glasses Gardevoir is, at least in appearance when she's "seen" by Gardevoir, how she'd like to appear to others. Glasses can help someone look so much smarter! And since she's currently a Kirlia, she hopes she can be a Gardevoir again, so Glasses Gardevoir is, well, still fully-evolved.
