"The greatest fear in the world is of the opinions of others. And the moment you are unafraid of the crowd you are no longer a sheep, you become a lion. A great roar arises in your heart, the roar of freedom."-Osho

Snarky • Cynical • Witty
Katsu is a sarcastic and witty person. He rarely gets emotional and tends to reacts to most things with indifference. His cynical nature makes the male a bit blunt with his words. He's not a fan of dancing around a subject as he feels like it's unnecessary. Despite all of this, the male isn't entirely a cold person. The male is introverted based on how reserved he can be and how he limits himself to a smaller group of friends. He doesn't like relying on others and often tries his best to avoid being in charge (unless it is his team). Interesting enough, Katsu is a very competitive person. The male is a sucker for a Pokemon battle, especially a challenging one. It's one of the few times where you see the male so excitable. It also shows that Katsu is an intelligent man. Despite all of this, Katsu is empathic towards the weak.
Words, Gifts and Touch
When it comes to the love language between CrimsonWildKatz, they carry a similar love language with each other. For them, they show off their affection through the means of words, gifts and just physically touching each other. Out of the three, praise/words is often the most common form of Katsu expressing his love for the other two and is typically his more preferred form. Seeing how Katsu is not the type to dance around his wording, most of what he states are often the realest to hear. As such, he has no problem supporting his partners by speaking in ways to uplift and empathize with them. He always shower Leon with praise and give Red the confidence of knowing that they would always be together no matter what. In a way, he almost serves as being the voice of reason between the three.
- "Look at me, Leon. I need you to understand that I'm not going to die. Nothing is going to me from ever leaving your or Red's side."
- "Aka...is that what you really want? This isn't a easy choice to make since this is going to change your life. [Sigh] I'm sorry..I just want to make sure if this is the right for you."
- "Every day I wonder what would happen if I never step foot in Galar and avoided that opporunity to meet the two of you."
- "We're idiots! We share one single brain cell that ping pongs between us. However, on the bright side, we're three idiots that love each other."
- "Leon, keep your head up. You guys managed to save me from Draco Plate. We should be able to save Aka from the ???."
- "Hehe. Someone's a little grumpy today. Come here, Red. There's loads of space here for the three of us."

Quiet • Naive • Kindhearted
Regarded as one of the strongest Pokemon trainers in the world, Red is a man of few words. This isn't to say that's he mute. The man is fully capable of speech, as noted by the fact he does give the occasional command to his Pokemoon whenever he gets serious in battle, or whenever he is talking to anyone he cares about. Personally, Red simply has no interest in talking to other people. Red is a serious guy that tends to be a bit of a lonewolf. He's not much of a people person and tend to express more interest in any Pokemon he spots. Honestly, it seems like Pokemon are attracted to him. Other than that though, Red is a relatively kindhearted and outgoing guy once you get to know him. He can be a bit naïve when it comes to certain concepts due to his tendency to avoid social interactions whenever he can. He become easily flustered around his partners.
Words, Gift and Physical Touch
When it comes to the love language between CrimsonWildKatz, they carry a similar love language with each other. For them, they show this off through the means of words, gifts and just physically touching each other. Out of the three, gifts is often the most common form of Red expressing his love for the other two and is typically his more preferred form. Between the three of them, Red is the more awkward when it comes to expressing his love for others to the point he is less experienced with it. As such, he often express how much love he have for the other two by bestowing them gifts he either made or brought. He often more prefers to make the gifts that he makes for them as he feels they have more value as a result.
- "Do you believe that I'm...worthy of having love? I know people say that I am..but do you believe that?"
- "Are you perfectly fine if I...hold your hand? I never really done that often enough to be good at it."
- "I know we hid our immortality from you, but it wasn't like we wanted to. We were scared about your reaction to it since immortality isn't nice to think about.
- "You said that I wasn't allowed to call myself broken. The same applies to you, Su. You're not allowed to degrade yourself."
- "How could you like the sound of my voice? It isn't all that special. I personally think it's average...but uh...thank you for complimenting it.
- "You two told me you were going to rest hours ago...so I'm fixing that now. I'm not sorry for this."

Charismatic • Heroic • Extrovert
Leon isn't necessary a stupid man. He is a very intelligent man as shown from his battles and how organized he can be of certain things. It's more so that he isn't the most socially aware guy in the world, considering he spent most of his time putting up the persona of being a charismatic heroic man that will do everything to be role model to all he meets. This does means to the male internalizing how he feels often to the point that Red and Katsu often have to point out when he's hiding how he feels about things. He isn't a fan of those innocent and young getting involved in "grown up things" such as being involved in the affairs of evil teams and what not. He is easily excitable guy that becomes fierce when it comes to battle to the point he instantly switches to competitive mode at the mention of it. Leon is a extrovert, having no problem interacting with others and practically feeds off it.
Touch, Gift and Words
When it comes to the love language between CrimsonWildKatz, they carry a similar love language with each other. For them, they show off their affection through the means of words, gifts and just physically touching each other. Out of the three, touch is often the most common form of Leon expressing his love for the other two and is typically his more preferred form. It's no secret that Leon is a overly affectionate person when he's with his partners. Often, he expresses his love for them by physical touch. He is fond of holding both of his hands and giving them the occasional nuzzle. With Katsu, he enjoys his moments of working out with him and lifting him up in the air whenever he's excited. For Red, he enjoys pressing himself against the other's side and rubbing his head (often ruffling his hair in the process).
- "You know if you grow out your hair, Su, I think you'll look even more handsome than usual! Haha~"
- "Hehe. I guess it's a bit funny to say that I fell in love with the both of you when we were younger."
- "We'll save him, Isa. It's going to be hard, but together...we will be able to save him. We just got to calm down and come up with a plan to do so."
- "What? You two cooked all of this for me!? Wow. You two didn't need to do all of that. Well...I suppose we shouldn't really let this food go to waste, huh?"
- "You know...you two have a wonderful smile. I should find more ways to make you two do it often."
- "Do you think that we will be able to bring a better future together? I feel like that we can, but I want to hear that confirmation from you two. "
The Rundown of the CrimsonWildKatzShipping
When Galar would receive a new champion after their old one lost, they never thought they would end up with three successful individuals that will help Galar ascend beyond what it originally was. With Katsu being the new champion, Red stepping in as the occasional challenger in the Battle Tower, and Leon being the chairman, the three became the power triad of the region. The three always finds ways to bring out the best out of the other and keeps the other in check since they know what makes the other tick. Red helps manages Katsu's anger, and Leon push Katsu to overcome his introverted nature in order for him to get what he needs done that requires interacting with those he's not used to talking to. Katsu helps Leon discover more of himself (now that he is no longer under the thumb of Rose), and Red pushes the male to talk about his feelings instead of keeping them tuck within him. Katsu and Leon together helps Red feel like he has a place he calls home and make him feel loved. While there are times where they may bump heads, they will always find a way to push through whatever problems that stumble onto their path in order to move on. For them, they carry the common goal of making Galar into one of the best regions around.
How Katsu Feels about Red
"Oi, I'm not a teddy bear!"
Katsu wasn't expecting to fall in love with one of the strongest trainers in the regions. While they do share the common trait of enjoying the companion of Pokemon while hating being in situations where they are forced to interact with people, Katsu thought they will just be acquaintances. Regardless, it happened and now he's in a relationship with the giant. To Katsu, Red is adorable. He loves to find the many ways to bring a smile on his face and make him blush. He's not fond of Red grabbing and holding him up like a dog whenever he's feeling extra fiesty.
How Katsu feels about Leon
"God, you're such a goober...."
Katsu wasn't expecting to fall in love with someone as corny and goofy as Leon. He's a polar opposite of who he is as a person, and he's the type of person who would 100% get on his nerves everytime ha was forced to deal with him. Regardless, it happened, and Katsu isn't complaining about it. To Katsu, Leon is like a puppy. He's overly affectionate, kindhearted and will do anything to bring a smile on your face. While Leon can be clingy at times, Katsu doesn't mind. If it makes him happy, he's fine with it since he values his joy.
How Red Feels about Katsu
"I'm not cute..."
Red had a attraction for Katsu every since he met the male when Red was working at the Battle Tree in Alola a few years back. He originally thought that the feeling he had for the male would go away the moment Katsu would leave. As it turns out, it did not as Red realized when he saw Katsu again in Galar. Red holds no fear for Katsu and is often the one to grab him whenever he notices the male getting aggressive. To Red, Katsu is like a kitty that he enjoys keeping nearby. He's not fond of the male trying to find ways to shower him with compliments.
How Red Feels About Leon
"....Your hair looks so nice..."
Leon's and Red's relationship was meant to solely be business only. However, that changed during the one night stand between himself, Leon and Katsu. That was the oddest way to change Red's feelings for someone who just saw as a decent business partner who shares his love for the winged beast that was Charizard. Regardless, Red isn't bothered by Leon's excitable energy that he has. In a odd way, he finds it quite soothing. He does find himself bickering with Leon over having the more superior Charizard.
How Leon Feels About Katsu
"Katsu, put away the pokeball!"
Falling in love with Katsu wasn't something that Leon was intending to happen. However, with the way the male made him feel safe about being himself and how kind he can be at times, he can't help it. While Katsu can be a bit blunt at times, Leon knows that the male does what he does as a means to potect those he care about and his trauma made the way he is. Undeneath his cold exterior is a man with a big heart. His favorite thing to do are showering him with affection and making the male fluster with his compliments.
HOW LEON FEELS ABOUT RED
"Ah, Tsu! Red's purring~"
If you told Leon years ago he would end up in a relationship with his idol, he wouldn't believe you. He always believed that Red wasn't the type to want to fall for someone like him. He didn't believe that he fits the standards of someone that Red would like. Honestly, Leon is happy that he's proven wrong. Despite the two being in a relationship, Leon continues to look up to the male and finds joy in knowing that he is willing to spend his entire life with him. He is trying his hardest to get the male out his his shell and speak a bit often.
Leigh the Charmander
This Pokemon was a birthday gift from Leon and Red. She is the biological daughter of Leon's Charizard and Red's Lapras. She was something that the two trainers spent so long trying to hide from Katsu so he can truly appreciate the Pokemon.
It's no secret that Katsu loves cat related things. As such, Red often goes out of his way to try to buy any cat related thing he ends up finding as a means to make him happy. Recently, he brought the male a cat backpack.
It's no secret that Leon is fond of hats. As such, he always enjoy sharing his love of hats with his partners. In Katsu's case, Leon always buy the male beanies as he does seem to enjoy wearing them in his off time. He also occasionally buys him cowboy hats.
Katsu often likes to write his thoughts down in various notesbooks as a means to keep his thoughts together. As such, Leon and Red often try to buy him a supply of them as a means to keep him happy. It's those little things that make him smile.
Kame the Wartortle
Kame was originally Pokemon that Katsu received from Honey after a quick battle with Mustard. Instead of keeping the Pokemon, he ended up giving her up to Red to keep as a gift to him since he figured he'll appreciate it more.
While he doesn't wear hats too often nowadays, Red does carry a fondness of apparel to the point that Leon ends up sharing his collection of hats with him. As small as it is, it does bring the guy a form of glee at having a new one.
This ring is one of the ones that Katsu spent most of time searching for to propose to Red with in Tundra. He worked his hardest to try to find something that he felt that Red would cherish. He only wished that Calyrex didn't make it hard to propose to him and Leon.
It took a lot of convincing on Katsu's and Leon's part for Red to accept his new phone from the two for his birthday. It wasn't that he hated the device or anything. He just wasn't used to having a phone possessed by a Pokemon. Then again, he's not the most tech savvy guy in the world...but hey he still loves it.
This ring is one of the ones that Katsu spent most of time searching for to propose to Leon with in Tundra. He worked his hardest to try to find something that he felt that Red would cherish. He only wished that Calyrex didn't make it hard to propose to him and Red.
It's no secret that Leon has such a strong love of hats and even has his own collection of them. As such, Red (and occasionally Katsu) often ends up buying him more hats he stumble upon on. As small as it is, it does bring the guy a form of glee at having a new one.
G-Max Charizard Plush
The G-Max Charizard plush is a gift that Red and Katsu decided to buy Leon to keep him company when he's gone on business trips. It's something that helps keep him calm and at ease. Considering his love for Charizard, he very much cherish this.
Sapphire the Garchomp
Sapphire is a gift from Katsu to show that he trust the male. Sapphire is the child of Katsu's Torterra and Garchomp and is the current youngest child between the two. Leon was hestiate to have the female due to his fear of not being able to take care of her well.
The Story of How They Fell in Love
The Story from Katsu's Eyes
When Katsu first saw Leon, he wasn't a fan of him. He never thought that Galar's champion was a gaudy, corny man that came packaged with a ridiculous outfit and pose. It's no surprise that the two bumped heads pretty often during the year that Katsu spent in Galar upon moving into it. Katsu often enjoyed making jabs at Leon's garb and how the male tends to act. To him, he was a child dressing up as a king that wanted to be a superhero to all he met. He was so set on not growing up that it was amusing. However, it was during that year after he moved to Galar and during his Pokemon journey that Katsu realized that Leon carried so much weight on his shoulders. It wasn't that Leon wasn't set on growing up. It was more so that he wanted to do everything in his power to bring happiness and hope to region he was raised in. He carried the curse of being the figure that people look up to and had to do everything he can to be a model. As a result of that, the male sacrifice who he is as a person to become the guy he feels that he has to for Galar's sake since he fears being his true self is only going to harm Galar's image and trust in him. The more Katsu looked at him, the more he realized that Leon was deeply traumatized but refused to show (or admit) it. This was a man who witness one of his Pokemon nearly get killed and gradually dealt with the pressure of being a champion. He witnesssed his best friend (Sonia) quit the Gym Challenge and never received a explanation as to why while watching as their relationship become distant over the years. He became something that he truly never wanted to be. Seeing this made Katsu so determined to become the Galar champion in order for Leon to no longer to deal with the pressure society pushed onto him and can have the chance to sit down to process his trauma. He wanted the male to have the chance to be who he wanted to be without bending the knee for others.
When it came to Red, Katsu heard the stories about the male. I mean he was the strongest trainers around. From what he knew, Red was a quiet trainer from Kanto managed to sweep across regions, defeating every Champion that walked his path. There are very few who actually managed to defeat him. However, most don't know the fact that Red himself is the first thrall, and specfically the thrall of Mew. Considering that Mew was the mother/father of Giratina, it was no shock that the two of them would end up crossing paths. Their meeting would occur sometime around the events of USUM where Red was taking a vacation with Blue while working at the Battle Tree. Katsu, who had been visiting at the time, would meet Red and the two would become acquaintances. It would be years later where they would end up seeing each other in the region of Galar. After a quiet exchange, Red would end up traveling with Katsu. Katsu knew that Red himself was a traumatized man. I mean he was the hero of Kanto (much like how he was a hero of Sinnoh). They been through things that children shouldn't have to deal. However, no one told him that Red had a strange charm to him. He carried a form of naivety with the world with the way he approach problems and people. They both bond over their love for Pokemon, and their desire to avoid social interactions. They don't personally see each other as being heroes since they felt they didn't fit that standard. Perhaps that's why it was so easy for Katsu to be himself around the male. He knew that Red wasn't going to judge him for whatever he said and did since in a way...he knew why he felt the way he did. It was quite comforting.
It took the fight that Katsu had with Leon in Stow-in-Side to realize that he was in love with Leon and Red. At first, he didn't want to think about that being the case until he realized it explained the awkwardness he felt after their one night stand. Every since that night, he found himself constantly thinking about the nature of their relatonship. He found it harder to simply regard Leon as being a annoying pest and Red as someone who understand his trauma. There was something more to them, and he found himself craving to see more of it. Instead of desperately trying to escape his desire to love them, he allowed himself to fall deeper in love with them. This was the first time he ever felt love like this, and it was a addicting feeling. He was always so set on avoiding romantic love since it was something he knew would hurt him later all in life if he were to outlive his partner. After all, he was a thrall. Thralls were essentially immortal. That and he wasn't even sure that Red cared to be in a relationship with him despite being a thrall himself. Even with that knowledge, that didn't stop from wanting to experience the emotion. A aching need for Leon and Red pushed Katsu into confessing his feelings for the two of them after he apologized for his actions. The fear of Leon and Red denying his confession did haunt him...however, it went away the second that Leon and Red accepted them and admitted similar feelings for the male. They would spend their years together, taking the time to make sense of their love for the other. There has been many things that stood in their path that shook the nature of their relationship such as Leon learning about Katsu being a thrall, Leon himself becoming one and Red getting used to the idea that he wasn't just some third wheel between them. However, they would push through these troubles as their bond would grow stronger. It would be only a few years later that Katsu would be the one to propose to Leon and Red after the three spent their time in the Crown Tundra. With the three of them together, they would spend their years working together as the Chairman, Champion and occasional challenger of the Battle Tower/main caretaker of the Postwick Sanctuary while taking a break to work on their farm.
The Story from Red's Eyes
Being a thrall isn't the worse thing to deal with. At least if you ask Red. He enjoyed his job as a thrall as it meant working for Mew. He didn't really care about being in a relationship or even the nature of what comes with the immortality of being a thrall. Red himself like to limit the number of bonds he had. Unless they were workers, family, a selective few friends and even the thralls, he didn't really care too much about people. He would tolerate them, but he wouldn't go out of his way of seeking them. That certainly made his care for Leon quite odd. When he first heard about Leon, he was amused to learn that the male looked up to him despite them being around the same age. With the way his eyes sparkle when he stare at him and the dramatic way he presents himself, Red couldn't help but think of Leon as being akin to a Arcanine. He was wild but had the charisma that manage to even impress him. However, deep in his eyes, he saw how hard he worked to get where he was. He saw how much pressure and stress he was under because honestly that was the reason why he briefly left Kanto. It was simply just too much for him at the time that he ended up just taking a break from life. It's why he offered his advice towards the male in hopes of trying to help him in some way. However, the more he did this, the more interested he became at getting to know him. What secrets did he hold...and what can Red do to try to solve him? He wasn't sure what, but much like Katsu, he was seeking ways to get the male to open up about him so he is able to save him from further destroying himself. It's a painful process espesically with Red not being the most social in the world. However, he was trying his hardest to push through that. However, the whole experience had lead him to feel things he never felt in so long and thought..he would never feel.
Red knew about Katsu for a number of years now. Being the thrall of Eden the Mew, it's impossible for him not with Katsu's legend being the son of Eden. As such, Red often listens to the God ramble about the nature of Giratina's and Katsu's relationship. It was something that she had been worried about since it wasn't the most healthiest in the world. It was no shock that the two of them would end up crossing paths. Their meeting would occur sometime around the events of USUM where Red was taking a vacation with Blue while working at the Battle Tree. Katsu, who had been visiting at the time, would meet Red and the two would become acquaintances. It would be years later where they would end up seeing each other in the region of Galar. After a quiet exchange, Red would end up traveling with Katsu. Katsu really enjoyed bringing himself down and undermining his talents. It's something that Red often notices whenever he speaks to the male. He can't blame him for feeling the way he felt. He didn't want to see himself as a hero as he felt that he didn't fit the standards of. Now Red did understand why he felt that was the case, he always finds ways to push Katsu into accepting that he wasn't as bad as he believed. He didn't need to be a hero to be a good person. After all, good is different depending on who you are. In Red's eyes, Katsu was one of the most selfless person he ever met as he always put others before himself. In some cases, it can be a tad bit unhealthy, but it was always one of those things that Red always thought about. It's why Red was willing to do whatever it takes to convince him that he wasn't some coldhearted bastard. Underneath the walls he put up is someone who wants to do everything he can to make everyone around him happy and safe since that's what honestly makes him happy with life.
Red realized he was in love with Katsu and Leon when he talked to Leon about the fight he had with Katsu. It was originally meant to stop himself from taking most of the blame of what occured. However, the more he talked to Leon, the more he realized he hated how hurt the two of them were from the fight. Their argument was something that was built off of rising tension from the one night stand and the stress that came with the Galar Cup. It was then that Red realized he wanted to be there for both of them. He wanted to make them happy. He wanted to be with thme so he can hold them in his arms and tell them it was ok. He wanted to be there for them at all cost. Hell, he was willing to drop his life in Kanto just so he can spend every moment with them. It was there that Red realized that he was in love with both Katsu and Leon...and he wasn't sure what to do about it. Then...his world would changed when Katsu would apologize to Leon about his words and eventually confess his feelings for him and Red. In that very moment, Red felt a level of bliss that ascended higher than anything that came into his life. It was a euphoria that he wanted to indulge. They would spend their years together, taking the time to make sense of their love for the other. There has been many things that stood in their path that shook the nature of their relationship such as trying to find out ways where all of them would feel equally love by all members. However, they would push through these troubles as their bond would grow stronger. It would be only a few years later that Katsu would be the one to propose to Leon and Red after the three spent their time in the Crown Tundra. With the three of them together, they would spend their years working together as the Chairman, Champion and occasional challenger of the Battle Tower/main caretaker of the Postwick Sanctuary while taking a break to work on their farm.
The Story from Leon's Eyes
Katsu reminded Leon of Raihan when he first met him. He was rough around the edges but carried a strong passion for fighting that could be easily seen through the ways he commanded his Pokemon. While he wasn't much of a people person, that didn't stop Leon from doing what he can to befriend the male. it was nice to have someone who wasn't being a yes man for the sake of getting on his good side. He needed someone that was willing to call him out so he knew how to improve in life. The more that Leon got to know Katsu, the more Leon realized that Katsu was a complicated man. While he was set on pushing away others, he knew it was because he personallty felt that was for the best. The male wanted to keep a smaller circle of people he cared about due to fearing that he may lose them and not wanting to risk opening his emotions to those who may not be able to handle it. Katsu's emotions are something that the male himself fear due to the number of headaches it can cause and the fact that once he gets emotional, it's harder for him to calm down. For that reasoning, Leon sought out understanding why Katsu was the way he is and be able to see a side of him he keeps so limited. He wanted to show Katsu that being emotional is just as valid as being unemotional. The more he got closer to him, the more he saw Katsu wasn't the asshole he presented himself as being to the world. He saw the soft side to the male that made Leon feel so much ease around him. He saw the determination in his eyes as he did whatever he can in his power to make his loved ones feel happy and safe. It didn't matter what it was. He wanted to have those people have their happy endings. It often makes Leon thinks of one thing every time he has the chance to see and talk to the male: Could Katsu perhaps give him a happy ending?
It's weird to think that Leon would look up to someone who was a mere year older than him. It's something that Leon would admit on a daily basis whenever he talks about Red. He can't help it! Red sparked that desire within him to become a champion and (while it did came with its problems) is something he appreciates. He always finds himself trying to follow whatever adventures he went on as he was so curious about the plans that Red had. What was he doing in Alola? What about Unova? Wait...he was in Johto? However, nothing could prepared Leon to meet his idol in person when Rose managed to snag a sponsorship with the Indigo League and the fact that he would be working with him during his time within Galar. However, this childish adoration would become one of understanding when the two would share similar complaints about what it meant to be a champion and the annoyance that came with him. There was also that relief that Leon felt at knowing that he finally had someone who understood what he went though. In a way, this allowed Leon to gain a higher level of respect for Red and see why he made the decisions he made. Most of it was partially a means to get away from everything and see what the other region had that Kanto don't. In a way, it's something that Leon seeked to do at some point when he isn't tangled in Galar's League. He wanted that opporunity to see the world and have the chance to live in...and why he couldn't do that he was happy that Red was willing to indulge his curosity. Honestly, Red allowed Leon to be able to be himself without the need of being judged. It's something he rarely gets.
Leon realized that he was in love with Katsu and Red after his one night stand with the two in Motostoke. He should have seen the signs of it during Katsu's first year in Galar and the joy he felt from being with Red. He should have been more careful since he knew how quickly he was able to fall in love with someone that showed him a ounce of affection. It was something that Raihan often warned him about on a daily basis. So here he was, suffering the consequences of falling in love with two men that he didn't knew even cared about love. It certainly didn't help that their relationship at that time wasn't the best espesically after the argument between himself and Katsu in Stow-in-Side. The male find himself falling deep into melancholy over the prospect of ruining what could have been a decent friendship with his own feelings. However, that would changed when Katsu would apologize to him about his words and eventually confess his feelings for him and Red. Years of dealing with being a champion and the idea of being a perfect man became nothing as he was able to find a new form of happiness that he has been seeking for so long. It was one of the pure things in life that he was acteively seeking since it been so long that he had it and it was the light he needed for the tunnel of his darker thoughts. They would spend their years together, taking the time to make sense of their love for the other. There has been many things that stood in their path that shook the nature of their relationship such as Katsu getting seriously hurt by Eternatus, Red trying to find his purpose in Galar and Leon adapting to being the new chairman. However, they would push through these troubles as their bond would grow stronger. It would be only a few years later that Katsu would be the one to propose to Leon and Red after the two spent their time in the Crown Tundra. With the three of them together, they would spend their years working together as the Chairman, Champion and occasional challenger of the Battle Tower/main caretaker of the Postwick Sanctuary while taking a break to work on their farm.
- The original name for 'Wildkatz' (ship with Leon/Katsu) came from Clow and is meant to be play off of wildcats as both Leon and Katsu have cat-themed name (as well as Red's connection with Mew). With the addition of Red, the ship became CrimsonWildKatz due to Red's nickname. I also thank BigGayFish for the this new name alongside Clow.
- Honestly, the use of crimson works considering the fact the the three typically have something red on their bodies, whether it be clothes (or hair in Katsu's case).
- This ship wasn't originally Leon/OC/Red ship. In fact, this ship was originally a Leon/OC ship. The reason I changed it is due to the fact I was interested in exploring a polyamorous relationships between three characters who brought different aspects to the relationship. Thankfully, I did take the time to work out a timeline when it came to the Pokemon games in the verse the three were in prior to this.
- Honestly, this was a ship I was thinking about for a while and I didn't really think to indulge it because I wasn't sure if it was fitting until I put some thought into it.
- Every once in the while, Katsu styles Leon's hair whenever Leon ask him to do so. Leon uses it as a excuse to avoid having his mother do his hair as Leon is tender-headed and he cites that she's not gentle with his hair. That latter part is something that Leon's mother claims is not the case at all. Is she being truthful? Who knows.
- Katsu also occasionally does Red's hair (though Red is often a bit stubborn about letting him do it). Both Red and Leon comment about often falling asleep whenever Katsu styles their hair. It doesn't help that Katsu often sings a soft melody as he does so.
- Katsu and Red doesn't often do PDA unless it's to calm each other down (or Leon). Though occasionally, Katsu does it as a means to get people to back off flirting with his partners.
- This image best summarize their relationships with Katsu being the cat and Leon and Red being the dogs.
- At the moment, Katsu, Red and Leon are debating having children. This is partially due to the fact the three are essentially immortal and fear during with the idea of their child dying before them.
- If you ask them "who wear the pants of the relationship", they wouldn't answer the question as the three of them take charge in various ways and often enjoy making decisions together.
- Surprisingly enough, this ship hasn't destroyed the plans I had for the stories these three would appear in. In fact, all I have to do is make a few tweaks when it comes to it.
- It took these three weeks to figure out they wish to handle last names when they got engaged. In the end, the three would take Katsu's and Leon's last name and combined them.
