Thanks for that, by the way. ^_^ This should be so much fun to write. Going to have the Tepig scarred, since fire obviously burns. Even though Tepig is a Fire type, even they are not exempt from the pain that fire can cause.
If you really want your poor Tentacool to sacrifice himself for Emo, then Emo could possibly come back. But it wouldn't help if she was immediately annihilated by Flannery and her OP'ed Overheat. D: I was looking forward to seeing her blossom into a Shiftry. :(
