Same. I was willing to let the "Blades are not people" bit go, if only because I got the impression the game wanted us to see them as people rather than as tools and/or minions, but I still have trouble shipping a boy who strikes me as having just started puberty with someone who strikes me as eighteen at the absolute youngest (technically, she's at least several hundred years old). Usually, being canon is reason enough for me to support a pairing, but if it feels too forced or unstable to me, the pairing just ends up feeling uncomfortable to me.

Like the "Blades are people too" works pretty well but it raised a lot of questions for me that mechanically the game didn't support. For example what about the legions of generic blades that I used and tossed away over the course of the game?

Also the concept of these blades as people gets weird when Corinne mentions a bunch of old stories where Drivers married their Blades. I mean sure one day Rex will grow old enough for a relationship while Pyra won't change at all but for the here and now in the game it's downright weird to see how everyone else ships them despite being underage.

Still perhaps it's a cultural thing in Alrest. Still a little uncomfortable which can actually be said for a lot of the character's designs. I really like Perun but man that weird pole-dance animation around her spear seems so out-of-character for her. I never got Dahlia but I've seen how she's designed and it'd be enough to make me uncomfortable playing the game on the bus.

Exactly. I'm reminded of one of the main problems the Pokémon games have to deal with. No matter how much the narrative says "these guys aren't just tools for you to use and discard as the situation demands," the mechanics still say "these guys are tools for you to use and discard as the situation demands."

Yeah, especially considering the amount of grinding you need to do to get all the blades at Endgame. So many just get tossed in the scrapheap.

That's not to say I didn't enjoy the game so much.

Just maybe age up Rex a little and give him a better voice actor and I think that's the worst of my problems solved.

One reason why I liked the plot of Gen V. The villains claim to first want to liberate them, but then Ghetsis drops all pretences and basically says that, yeah, he will use Pokémon because that's what they are: tools. And anyone who says otherwise is kidding.

Plus, even so, you have your preferences. Many people don't like the Zubat-line; it's a decent Pokémon, but if you find a better Pokémon or one you like much more, you are very likely to plop Zubat into a PC and leave it there.
