Hi just curious, why did you decide to put Vileplume and Bellossom into different houses? And what does it mean for Oddish and Gloom to belong to two houses? (Disclaimer: I don’t watch GoT)

As for what it means, probably nothing.  I guess just some Oddish are born into “House Vileplume” and some into “House Bellossom.”  As to why I gave them two different sets of house words… well, I’m not 100% consistent on how I deal with split evolutions.  Vileplume and Bellossom are separate because the most compelling mottos I could come up with were ones that emphasised the day/night contrast between the two.  Some other split evolutions are going to get a single shared motto because I felt their most important traits applied to both of them.  Nidoqueen and Nidoking technically aren’t a split evolution, but again, they share the motto “By Our Royal Blood” because the most important thing about them is their emphasis on family, which only makes sense when they’re together.  Eevee, when we get to her, has her own house and motto because she is special.
