As he saw that Fayne had no objection to him speaking, Elliot stopped flinching away so much. In fact, he actually started to lower his guard once again. Maybe it wasn't that she was cold, or had something against him, but he just messed up earlier in the conversation and wasn't sure how. Or maybe she was the type of person who'd engage with topics of her interest and tune out when they passed by. Really, anything was possible here. And she did leave him some interesting ideas to springboard off of.
"That's the thing, though. Galar's Leaf Stones still work on the same Pokemon that they normally do. They just also work on Eevee, even though normal leaf stones don't," Elliot said. "But the Moss Rocks don't do anything to those other Pokemon. So why do Galar's do both when the others are just kind of exclusive with each other? Is it, like, possible to be both? A moss stone with a plant fossil imprinted inside of it?" He paused for a second, considering the question. Then again, the Galarian store also said it could evolve Nosepass with their thunderstones, which have me thinking that they cut them with a magnetic material too. I can see why they'd try to sell that. Especially as regions become more connected, and Pokemon show up out of their native environments, it must be a pain to find out you've been traded a Pokemon that literally can't evolve where you're from. But did they just find the stones that way? Or are they, like, making them themselves?"
Yeah, Elliot was definitely rambling now. But at least he knew he was in good company for it, for a change. "And what about other trade items? They break when their energy's used up, just like stones, but a lot of them are grown in the ground, or even manmade, right? How is their energy captured? Could that hold they key to making artificial stones?"
