We all know that Passimian is a lemur, the black and white ruffed lemur to be a bit more specific, but I'm more interested in its football aspect.
We already know that this Pokémon creates troops of 20 to 30 members. Each troop has a leader that picks 10 of the strongest members to search for food. The leader is also in charge of choosing the mark that distinguishes the troop and is worn on the member’s arms. This Pokémon’s battle strategy involves throwing Berries at opponents, hard ones for damage and soft ones to obscure vision, and confusing opponents by throwing the Berry to other troop members.
Through rigorous training, the troop improves its coordination, teamwork, and skill in handling Berries. Some Passimian are unable to handle the intensity, and flee from the troop. In place of a troop leader, a captive Passimian looks to its Trainer for leadership. If its Trainer has poor form when throwing Poké Balls, it will refuse to obey.
At first I thought using football for a lemur was strange, but it totally make sense. Lemurs live in large groups and display amazing teamwork.
The black-and-white ruffed lemur are known for loud, raucous calls. These lemurs demonstrates several different call types each of which last several seconds. Kinda like a quarterback barking out orders in the huddle. Most lemurs of a group participate in any one of the chorus.
Just like quarterbacks these lemurs have loud shriek choruses that have several purposes including group movement, spacing among different groups, and alarming other members of the group of predators. Definitely like Tom Brady stepping up calling the plays burying my Falcons.
Studies of groups of the ruffed lemurs both in captivity and in the wild have demonstrated a variety of social structures from pairs to large groups. Groups have been shown to exhibit a range of fission fusion dynamics, meaning that group size can fluctuate based on resource availability. When resources are plentiful, the environment can support a larger group of lemurs, but when resources are scarce, the group may split into smaller sub-groups to survive. The sub-groups can rejoin and split as needed with environmental and social cues.
Even Passimian split its group of 30 members into 10 fits that pattern truly amazing. Now if only my Passimian Jay Cutler could throw a spiral. Nah, I'm just joking, but if you enjoyed the video don't forget to like and until next time deuces.
