** Apparently, Kantonian Bulbasaur gather at a proscribed time and place, where a Venusaur presides over their collective evolution.


Added DiffLines:

** First Holy Communion is a big deal for Catholics. It comes after a young Catholic's first confession, so it boils down to a celebration of the formation of a child's conscience and the development of his or her ability to tell right from wrong. It usually takes place when a child is in second grade, but in some parishes, things are spread out more so that first confessions take place for second graders in the spring, and they receive their first communion as third graders during the following fall.

* In some parts of the United States, being asked by one's parents to call them by their first names is a RiteOfPassage for both parent and offspring; it's a formal recognition that the child is now an adult, but it's also a tearful recognition for both that the son or daughter is now old enough that the parent can no longer protect him or her no matter how much the parent might wish he or she could.

** And the sequel introduces the krogan rite to establish themselves as a true warrior. It can be completed solo, or the young krogan may convince one or two already established warriors to help them (called a "krantt"). Said rite (or at least the Clan Urdnot variant) is as follows: activate a totem that summons predators, kill them. Activate it again, kill the next wave. Activate it again, which causes it to set off the Thresher Maw Hammer, and then survive for five minutes while the most dangerous predator in the galaxy tries to kill you. If you get out alive, you're in. If you ''kill'' the Thresher Maw, this is also acceptable, and is considered a mark of enormous skill (the only Urdnot to manage this in the past thousand years or so is Wrex).
