Pretty sure Squall, the devs, and most gamers thought the same after the latter got impaled with extreme prejudice by a giant icicle. And then Moombas appeared in the game...
It's just like Leon here. He gets killed and then meets a Haunter (which are hairless) with a bang and a crush on a Castform that stutters. That's simply unnatural. It all makes sense I tell you, canon be damned.
The only thing missing is a quirky love interest and a nonsensical timeloop storyline.
Jokes aside. I'm also dying to see Mission 4. I have high hopes Leon will become a badass Lucario. Or at least be a general badass against the legion of dragons thingy if you decide he's too cool to become cooler. Wait... isn't "badass Lucario" a redundancy?
I... dunno how to interpret that Well, is not like at the moment you have many choices. You either evolve, Noir, evolve Leon, or wait for a fourth member. Either way you'll use your fourth slot and be stuck like that until PMD decides to update.
