This one is weird because Nidorina's out of character in a different way. If this were based on early Poke Tales, when Nidorina was snappier and defensive, then this comic could work. However, Totodile appeared in Legends, and Nidorina mellowed out by this time, realizing the world wasn't out to get her. Her treatment of Psy seems more like early Tales Nidorina, so while it's not beyond the scope of her behavior, it feels like a regression here. Anyway, the point is that what Nidorina's willing to do for her son's childhood and prolonging that innocence is something she would totally do in any era.
