Are there any other warp band users who are bonded with a Porygon?

I could use some advice, and the information I've accessed on the species doesn't really answer any of my questions.

I've had one with me for just over a month or so now, and I'd thought we were getting along quite well. But recently [since their trip to Refuge] it's been quite absorbed with the warp band network, and as of this week no longer responds to the name we'd agreed on when we first met..

[her tone is calm, but there's a hint of concern there that might be audible if you've gotten to know Sophia at all]

Is that typical behaviour? Or should I be worried about it? It doesn't seem unhappy..and it's not outright ignoring me otherwise.

Video

[The Rei that comes on the video feed today is not her usual self.  She looks drained, tired, older somehow, and every bit as somber as always.  There’s a pinched quality to her eyes, a faint hint of makeup used, and her outfit is the most formal kimono she owns.  Black, decorated in with scarlet and gold, a ceremonial Hino family head’s attire.  To those that are familiar with her family customs, or with Rei herself, there’s only one reason she’d bother to put on this outfit. Her voice is firm, steady, and obviously practiced, a Gardevoir at her side bowing to the camera.  But there are still cracks in her mask, little bits of her composure falling away.]

People of Union, I come before you today with more ill tidings.  As many of you know, my father, Councilman Takashi Hino, has been missing since the attacks upon our city.  I regretfully need to announce that late last night, his body was found in the ruins of a collapsed tower.   He has passed on from this world and into the next.

[Rei breathes in, breathes out, clearly trying to steady herself.]

His aide, Kaido Furukawa will temporarily assume Councilman Hino’s duties to the Council until arrangements for a replacement can be made.  However, despite his illustrious political career, he is not a Hino.  Therefore it falls to me to take his place as the head of the Hino Family, and as of now I will assume those responsibilities.  My residence will remain Hikawa Shrine in the Ninetales Vale, but all Hino family business will be carried out at the Hino estate.

[The Gardevoir bows again, passing Rei a notepad.  She taps it, and for the first time a smile graces her lips.]

However, I will also be organizing and funding a new charity organization and diverting some of the family capital towards funding it and rebuilding the city of Union.  Details on that will come later, but do be advised that I will not be entertaining offers of new business ventures at this time.  If you have preexisting business agreements with us, I will continue to honor them, as that would be my Father’s wishes.

Moreover, and on a more personal note, I will welcome visitors at the shrine, both human and Pokemon alike.  An open ceremony will be held in the Noble Quarter for my Father’s burial this evening.  All who wish to attend are welcome to do so.

[What she does not say is that she’s not attending, though she assumes anyone that knows her will already understand that.]

Thank you for your time.

[She closes out the feed and will not be taking calls for the remainder of the day.  Anyone wishing to talk should simply visit her via action threads.]
