In the Victorian era, hand-fans were used not only to cool oneself but also as a secret way to communicate the language of love. For example, by running one’s fingers through the fan’s ribs, one is trying to say, "I want to talk to you." The enigmatic language of the fan was widely used by both men and women.
I. A fan placed near the heart.
"You have won my love."
II. A closed fan touching the right eye.
"When may I be allowed to see you?"
III. A closed fan moved threateningly.
"Do not act so impudently!"
IV. A half-opened fan pressed to the lips.
"You may kiss me."
V. Covering the left ear with an open fan.
"Do not betray my secret."
VI. Hiding the eyes behind an open fan.
"I love you."
VII. Shutting a fully open fan slowly.
"I promise to marry you."
VIII. Fanning oneself slowly.
"I am married."
IX. Letting one’s fan rest on the right cheek or the left.
"Yes" and "No", interchangeably.
X. Opening and closing the fan several times.
"You are cruel."
XI. Fan in front of the face.
XII. Twirling the fan in the left hand.
"We are being watched."
XIII. Fan held over left ear.
"I wish to be rid of you."
XIV. Carrying an open fan in the left hand.
"Come and talk to me."
XV. Opening a fan wide.
"Wait for me."
XVI. Placing the fan behind the head with finger.

(Azumarill is the water rabbit. Not mouse)
Yeah, but Azuril and Maril are mice and they’re sort of meant to be water parallels to the Pika line, so I personally count them.
YEAH. PICHU I CAN FORGIVE. BECAUSE HE’S A PIKA-EVO. MARILL AND CO, THEY’RE WATER TYPES; THEY GET A PASS. BUT PLUSLE AND MINUN? YEAH WOW TWO USELESS PIKA-CLONES, THANK. PACHIRISU? OH WOW A SQUIRREL. NOW IT’S FLYING, EMOLGA. DEDENNE? WOW ANOTHER ELECTRIC MOUSE.
