The Masters by purplekecleon The Masters by purplekecleon
Master Foo and Master Shao

Master Foo is the grandson of Master Shao. Foo trained under his grandfather for a long time. Evolution really interests Foo, but he will never be ready to evolve until his grandfather passes. He's long since met the requirements, but has been holding back all this time (it's rumored to be out of a strange respect for Shao, but Foo refuses to talk about it).

Master Shao has traveled the world and learned techniques that most Pokemon forget exist, still. He's a tutor for all sorts of moves a Pokemon might not normally be privy to. He has a hut out near Snowy Village and has been a hermit for a while. He's known Zhu for a long time and finds delight in the fireworks shows his friend puts on display.

If Master Shao is the master of Master Foo, then shouldn't he be Grandmaster Shao?

Well, Mienfoo and Mienshao are based on a kung fu warrior.

The old Mienshao reminds me of Shi-fu from kung fu panda

Does Master Shao fight like Hoy Quarlow from Super-Punch Out!! on the SNES?

Because he should. He's even got the stick.

does this mean that master Shao works as a sort of move tutor? as if, instead of using an evolution scroll, pokemon can go visit him to change their attack moves?

but then again, I think that would imply another sort of voucher for his service.

Yes, he works as a sort of move tutor. We'll want him to show up in Tao before we go over that, though!
