comment What does this Japanese text say?
I don't know Pokemon, so I can only guess. But ねかしつける means 'to put to bed, put to sleep'. Because there is an を here, it means there is an unmentioned subject, but it would probably mean 'you' in the context.

comment Changing a question into a request for advice
どこへ行っていいです is fine in conversation. It means 'where is it permissible to go'.

どこへ行っていいですか? means 'Where is it ok to go?', which isn't the requested meaning. Using 良い makes it sound very formal.

I wouldn't say that you can't say them. But my feeling is that 君がくれたこと doesn't sound as right as 君がくれたもの. At any rate, I did a Google search of 君がくれたこと = 19 results. A similar search of 君がくれたもの = Page after page of results, although many related to the lyrics of one particular song. As for 君が教えてくれたもの, I didn't rule this out. As it turns out, a Google search yielded a lot more occurrences of 君が教えてくれたもの than 君が教えてくれたこと. I will have to think more about this question, and hope someone who has a better understanding / theoretical framework can answer it better.
