ask-volcarona asked askvespiquen:
“I must ask, do you belong to any sort of royalty~?”
Ah, well, I suppose you could say that. The dominant vespiquen of a colony - typically the only vespiquen in a colony until her successor evolves - if often referred to as its “queen,” and I can see how the parallel is made. The vespiquen of larger hives do tend to have notable influence over the pokemon in their territory, via pheromones and resources such as honey, among other things.
So I suppose the answer to your question is a tentative, “yes,” although it’s a little strange to think of it as a true monarchy.
