    Pokemon Conspiracy Theories Part I

    1) [DITTO/MEW] Is Ditto a... failed Mew?


    Mew and Ditto both weigh 8.8 lbs.
    They have the same sprite color scheme, with the same shinies.
    They both can learn every move, though in Ditto's case for a certain period.
    They both learn Transform.
    Many Ditto can be found in Cinnabar Mansion where many experiments took place between Mew and Mewtwo.

    2) [KANTO] Player kills Blue's (Gary's) Raticate


    3) [KANTO] Gengar is Clefable's shadow


    The two Pokemon have similar physical features.
    They both have the same hands, ears, feet, and body shape.
    Gengar's species name is the Shadow Pokemon.
    Gengar's name is originated from the word doppelganger, the ghostly double of a person.

    4) [KANTO] Cubone, baby Kangaskhan, and M'


    When a mother Kangaskhan dies, it leaves its Kangaskhan cub on its own. The Kangaskhan cub uses the skull and a bone from its mother to use as protection and becomes a Cubone. Then through malnutrition or adapting to a different lifestyle, the Cubone evolves into a Marowak. Female Marowak's later evolve into Kangaskhans, and the cycle starts all over.

    This is self evident, as Cubone appears rather similar to the baby Kangaskhan that rides around in it's mother's pouch. Also, 'Bonemerang' (Cubone's signature move) refers to boomerang just as 'Kangaskhan' refers to Kangaroo. Kangaroo and boomerangs are both natively Australian themes.

    Before Pokemon Red/Blue released, the developers decided that Kangaskhan needed to be separated from the previous two stages to become its own standalone Pokemon. The reason for this is that, being a kids game, it wouldn't do to allow small children to learn that a Cubone is actually an orphaned baby Kangaskhan wearing it's dead mother's skull on it's head and slinging it's bones around like clubs and boomerangs. However, the team didn't have time to delete the code at the last minute. Instead of deleting the code, they simply wrote a new non-evolving Marowak and moved the old one to an empty slot... with no number. This catchable Pokemon is M', Missingno's sister.

    M' is actually a scrapped prototype of Marowak. This theory can be confirmed if you catch a M' and level it up, it evolves into a Kangaskhan.

    5) [EVOLUTION] Messed up evolution #1


    6) [EVOLUTION] Messed up evolution #2


    7) [ANIME] Ash's Age #1


    It's quite a long but it's DEFINITELY mindblowing and worth the read. This is one of the first Pokemon theories to surface the web. It explains how Ash is in a coma and conjures his Pokemon adventures, which ties into adolescent anxiety and Freudian psychology.

    Click spoiler:

    Let me start off by saying this was not written by me. But I think this is one of the most well written articles on the internet and I just HAD to share it.


    If you’re prepared to soil a part of your childhood, proceed.

    Did one ever know the reason why the pacing and story development change after Ash was hit by lightning in the beginning episodes? How Ash and his world were relatively normal until after the incident? I have a theory. The accident with the bike put Ash in a coma. Days later he was found and was hurried to the hospital and treated with heavy medications. This is why Team Rocket became less menacing. The medication took effect and stabilized his coma dreams, instead of being terrifying, they became idyllic, and he’s able to live out his Pokémon master fantasies.

    If one had noticed, the early episodes of Pokémon were of amazing quality. The rest of the series is just the results of his subconscious mind fulfilling his desires, as well as attempting to escape them. Should Ash realize he’s in a coma, he would wake up, but suffer brain damage. So he has to take down all his mental barriers one by one until he can come to grips with what he is and escape his coma.

    This explains why he doesn’t change much physically. Also, the worldwide socialism can be explained if you once again realize that this is a dream world; he thought up a safe system of government that would run smoothly and keeps the world going allowing his adventures to work like they do. It also explains a few other things, such as how a child can go off on his own in a world full of dangerous untamed animals, and why every Pokémon center has the same exact nurse. Joy and Jenny he knew from his hometown, and they act as a safety net or anchor, allowing him to feel safe no matter where he goes. The professors, like the Joy’s and Jenny’s represent stability, and ash’s ideals. This is why Gary became a professor. It’s also the reason that every time he enters a new region, virtually no one has heard of him, despite his conquests, and why Giovanni leads Team Rocket. How could Paul, the rival of the Sinnoh area, not know of someone who has placed in at least the top 16 of all three leagues and has destroyed the Orange league and Battle Frontier?

    Ash’s travelling partners are actually aspects of himself he can enjoy, but doesn’t like to associate with himself. Team Rocket are his qualities that he deems “negative”, but is coming to terms with. Jesse and James want to appease Giovanni, Ash’s Father. Meowth especially wants to appease him because he remembers the good times with Giovanni. This Places meowth in a category known as ash’s (corrupted) innocence, and another fragment of ash’s humanity. If you note that meowth can speak this quickly becomes apparrent. In fact the whole reason for meowth’s speech is so he can help Ash accept Team rocket as part of himself eventually.

    Brock is Ash’s repressed sexuality. He fell into the coma a virgin and needed an outlet for his growing sexual frustrations. Since he can never experience sex, Brock must never succeed. Brock is a projection of his sexuality, and is constantly shot down because Ash could never “know” sex. Brock isn’t just Ash’s latent sexuality, he’s also his fatherly instincts, neither of which Ash can come to terms with. Brock leaves his siblings to “journey” with Ash. because Ash can’t cope with having that much responsibility, much as his foray with a real relationship ends on mysterious terms. Ash just cannot handle commitment at his mental level. Brock’s Stay with professor Ivy was an.attempt to outright suppress his sexuality. You’ll notice that James got much more dialogue in this part of the series, as well as getting more touchy feel-y with his pokemon and getting most of his backstory. Ash didn’t enjoy this much, hence the reasons Brock comes back all horrified, and refuses to speak about it. (ash’s subconscious was repressing him at the time, so other than a general feeling of dread he has no idea of what went on then.) This is also why brock keeps coming back to the series….Usually AFTER Ash meets a new girl aspect of himself.Misty is an image that Ash had of a girl. This is why she plays so prevalently in the series but is ultimately unattainable because he never really knew her before the coma. Likely the one that helped get him to a hospital. I have a theory in line with this: Since Misty was his initial love interest (if only subconsciously), he needed her to reach a level of womanhood. He felt that people could only have relationships when they’ve matured. But in practice, it turned out he couldn’t cope with it and just wanted the normal, pushy, arrogant Misty he knew, and wouldn’t let her keep Togepi anymore.

    Misty is Ash’s first attempt at a girl he could love, however, being a girl from the real world, all he really he knew of her was her anger, as a result she ended up quite hot headed in his mind. Constantly berating his sexuality, but eventually mellowing out until she had faded into the background. This was also traumatizing to him, being attached to it. Since then, the thought of anyone around him maturing to adulthood has been blocked, and anyone who shows signs of it will quickly end up leaving for another, more naive fill-in.

    Max came with May, she played the Id with great aspirations, and he played the sensible Ego that “Session”. They worked for a little while but Ash, being a teenager, eventually had his sexuality had to come back into play. He kept reinventing himself and eventually wrote new aspects, but his mind slowly brought back the old ones as a crutch to make the transition easier.

    Dawn is Ash giving himself a chance to love. since he already established Misty as someone he’s not likely to go anywhere with, he created a new super female, one that was more like him, and less violent all the time. (One will note that both May and Misty had no tolerance for Brock whatsoever whereas dawn seems to try and shrug it off.) .

    Tracey, The Breeder was a possible future for Ash that he discarded. It was one that he sent off to work with the Professor (the professors being Ash’s ultimate ideal of a father figure) when he disrupted the dynamic Ash had with his other possibilities. Ash’s mind is fighting the coma and since Ash viewed this one as a companion he was quickly replaced with a more threatening Rival.

    Pikachu obviously represents Ash’s Humanity, hence the episodes where they get separated, and ash wants desperately to find him, even to the point of working with the rockets ( aspects of himself he woould never normally associate with) but for some reason cannot. They want to steal Pikachu (Ash’s humanity) and hand it over to his father, Giovanni. Jesse and James will always oppose ash because ash is terrified of the thought of his humanity lying in the hands of his father. However this is the same reason that he will work with those aspects of himself in order to save his humanity from just becoming flat out LOST. He couldn’t evolve his Pikachu without challenging his concept of who he was, something he wasn’t comfortable with while he was still working through his original issues.

    Another thing is the narrator. The narrator is Ash’s higher mind, recapping and explaining the progress he’s made and the tribulations he will face allowing itself insight into how best to awaken him.

    Ash has issues With his Father; so he put him atop the evil corporation, and demonized him. There may be an actual team rocket, and I’m positive they’re quite dastardly, but I doubt that ash’s father is their leader, in fact the head of the rockets wasn’t really identified as anyone until later on in the series. The split between ash’s parents was likely over ash’s homosexuality and some sort of incident as a catalyst, forcing his father to disown him and his mother to move out of the city and down to pallet town. This is why Giovanni runs the faceless Vile corporation, and Why he Berates Jesse, James, and Meowth as much as he does, and why they keep trying to please him. Another thing to notice is the difference in uniform, The rockets Wear Black and Red, where Team Rocket wears White….a symbol of their purity and naievete. They’re willing to please father despite his utter hatred of those parts of Ash .

    Team rocket are aspects of Ash’s personality that he has deemed “bad” James implied homosexuality, and Jesse’s vanity. You’ll remember that Meowth has the potential for rehabilitation, and doesn’t want to be evil, so yet again this fits in with the conflicting personalities and demonized self theory. Team rocket started cross-dressing because ash had to come to terms with that part of himself. It was something he was able to allow his gay/vain side to experiment with (and by virtue of that himself) When he found that it wasn’t something for him, his “Free” side stopped playing with it. Further, their methods of capture become more and more ludicrous (and physically impossible) because Ash is just a kid dreaming these things up. This is the reason Team Rocket’s disguises are always believed. He knows it’s them (on some level), but chooses to ignore it, so he can better himself, in a sense the Ash who wants to escape is sabotaging the ash who wants to stay lost in his mind. So that there can be more conflict, and hopefully an eventual escape. The filler episodes that don’t focus on Ash and the gang are his mind working through, and humanizing the parts of himself that he demonized. It’s a way for him to deal with issues that Ash and crew wouldn’t touch, because it involves treading ground he himself had sworn not to go near. As I said, Team Rocket and the episodes they occupy are Ash dealing with ground he feels uncomfortable with tackling on his own. Jessie is Ash’s vanity and gullibility, she will trick Ash’s submissive homosexuality into doing her bidding so she can please father. James’ troubled childhood is his way of justifying his latent homosexuality. Now James is Ash’s latent homosexuality, hence why he is constantly punished by Pokémon and attacked by random attractive girls. I believe the split between Ash’s parents was caused by this part of Ash, maybe an incident at school, bringing shame on the family and forcing them to move to the small, country town of Pallet. Ash’s motivations for his journey were to escape mounting pressure at home.

    So in a way, Ash IS Team Rocket. The rest of the whole organization Including Butch and Cassidy is symbolic of his inability to escape his father’s machinations.

    Mr. Mime is actually a stand in for Ash’s father, one that can’t emotionally abuse him or his mom. He is a Pokémon, a peace loving creature that’s oddly humanoid, but that can never hurt a human. Ash’s was never really hurt by a Pokémon, so he sees them all as harmless; whereas, in the real world they may be quite feral or vicious (as seen in the early episodes). Again falling back to the theory that the only real Pokémon are the ones from the first season, and everything else is just further speculation coming from his mind on what new species would look like.

    The new teams ( magma, aqua, and galactic) are Ash attempting to work out the problems he has with his father. to do that he first needs a new “bad guy” to feel good about beating, and if Giovanni isn’t leading a criminal organization he can more easily relate to him.

    If one recalls, there were real animals early in the show and references to animals in the game and show. For example, a clear case to point out is the aquarium of fish in the Cerulean City Gym or that by the Pokédex that Pikachu is a “rat-like” Pokémon. But they don’t matter to Ash’s psyche so they don’t come into play much. If Ash had loved puppies, everything would be about different breeds of dogs, and a dog fighting circuit. But, as the series goes on longer, we’ve been seeing less realistic animals and more Pokémon. This could be a sign of Ash’s mind deteriorating. As he’s in this coma, he’s losing concepts of some animals and machinery and replacing them with Pokémon. It could explain things like electric Pokémon working as power generators. A sign that his memory of the old world is slipping more and more as time goes by. The Pokémon realm will be idealized continuously the longer he has no stimulus from the real world. He may or may not be mentally deteriorating , but he is becoming more accustomed to his fake world’s rules. The wild Pokémon are his rationalizations of the functioning of the world. It’s the “A wizard did it” Syndrome. If he doesn’t know how it works, his mind says Pokémon. He justifies anything he can’t explain with Pokémon, and real animals fall into the background because he has no real interest in them.

    The Pokémon in Ash’s team are his issues, for example Charmander represents his sex drive (not his sexuality like Brock) at first it’s a cute easy to control thing, but eventually becomes a raging inferno of disobedience. Acquiring his team means getting at his issues, but as he trains them, he works said issues out. Other trainers are more direct forms of his issues, ones that he must either come to terms with or outright supress. Gym leaders are more primary aspects of his personality with each Pokémon being stronger than the last, to display a level of skill he could be capable of if only he gave into it. In effect, he is doing battle with a part of him that he would rather not have in control. Bulbasaur was Ash’s unwillingness to change, this is reflectedwhen it declines to evolve and how it almost decided to stay behind unless he battled it. Squirtle was his willingness to follow the lead of others, as evidenced by the gang it ran with, even though he ran the gang, they were viewed as one group, and ash’s subconscious just gave him the strongest one. Butterfree was his crushing loneliness, which he dealt with when he released it to join a flock. His bird types are his recklessness, always willing to sacrifice something at a moment’s notice for the win. When Ash is trading Pokémon, it’s an attempt to push his own problems away on someone else; however, he realizes this and usually trades back fairly quickly. Originally ash had the battles, which evolved into team battles and contests. The explanation for this is that his issues became more and more complicated, and the means of dealing with them needed to become more complex. the fact that he uses issues that he has already dominated to win these are signs that he’s growing stronger.

    Not only are Ash’s Pokémon are a manifestation of different parts of himself, so are Pokémon of other trainers as well. Koffing and Ekans were symbolic of Team Rocket’s willingness to change; hence, their evolutions. Once his mind beat that roadblock down and allowed them to change once, it gives him the chance to truly change. Pupitar is a rationalization, a Pokémon that a rival caught before he met him. Even Ash would become suspicious if everyone he met had no carry-over from pervious places he had been to.

    Ash releases his Pokémon because his mind is forcing him to let go of them. The second he raises an overpowered team, a tournament comes up, and after fighting his way through it he has to go to a new land for new challenges, but with an overpowered team, there won’t be any challenges, and no way to motivate him further, part of Ash wants to stay in the coma, and keep journeying.

    Ash’s travelling also never really nets him any fame, no matter what he does, or where he goes, and the answer for that is simple. Ash just can’t picture himself as famous, so he essentially adopts a new identity every few months.

    The reason he never truly becomes a master is because that would mean he’d have nothing left to dream, and would wake up from his coma. Ash’s dual personality is one that wants to maintain his fantasy world and slowly sort his thoughts out carefully. The other part wants freedom, and to return to his real life, to finally become a real Pokémon master. However if he’s allowed to keep his powerful team there’s no reason to meet and tame new Pokémon(Issues), he’ll lose interest, and the chance of becoming self-aware comes around again. So it’s not that he gives them up, it’s that he loses them, and unless he’s desperate (such as with Charizard) he can’t get them back. It’s basically his mind forcing him to deal with his issues. It would also be a good reason why Paul has shown up at this point, and Ash has been forced to work with him on at least one occasion: It’s his mind’s last ditch efforts to snap him out of this, to force Ash to actually come to terms that this perfect world is not the best option and he needs to wake up. Paul is Ash’s dark side, one that wants to push on even harder and harder, and the part of him that will stop at nothing to escape this coma world.

    Ash’s rivals and the Elite four are ultimately the strongest part of this cycle. Having Pokémon that are essentially godlike, they represent both what can be attained and what is unattainable. Gary Oak is what Ash wants to be. He is wish fulfillment. He succeeded, and settled down to a normal life. Ash needs someone to succeed in his world or he won’t be able to validate it and will start questioning why he’s where he is. It’s a subconscious trap to keep him from becoming too aware of his situation. His mind must have figured out that awareness of the coma would snap him out of it, but it would cause major brain damage, so it took something the boy already loved and built a way out for him with it. However Ash is too complacent to finally fight his way out of it, and cannot escape. This is why he keeps encountering Legendary Pokémon, they’re his mind’s way of showing him he can do great things if he tries, and it’s a way to encourage him to push forwards. The Legendary Pokémon are Ash’s mind telling him that he has greatness in him and thus, can escape his happy–go–lucky reality.

    Ash’s Rivals are all possible futures he envisions for himself (note that they are all older than him). This originated with Gary Oak, someone Ash knew from real life, and built up into a sort of god within his mind. Gary however progressed and changed to suit Ash’s vision of himself and ultimate desire, eventually settling down into a professor after beating the Elite Four. With Gary in retirement his mind needed a new rival for him Thus the births of Richie (the Good aspect of his rivalry) and Paul (as the darker aspect, a cut-throat Ash, willing to do anything to escape the coma world).

    Richie and his Pikachu were another success story for Ash, but he wanted one he could be closer with. One nearly identical to him. One that even used a similar roster to him. Paul and his Chimchar are the polar opposite of Richie, Paul wants nothing to do with any kind of weakness, and is almost aware of his situation. He’s always pushing for something more.

    The reason he discarded his original hat and the elements of japanese culture so prevalent in the first season is simple. He wanted to travel and broaden his horizons, every time he reinvented himself to do so; he lost touch with his original self. If he ever does escape the coma he’ll likely have achieved a sort of Zen state. Considering the amount of personal issues he deals with inside his head, it’s entirely likely that he was the next Buddha of the Pokémon world, and that the lightning strike and subsequent coma are a way for him to realize his true self, and destiny.

    Mewtwo was a new form of treatment, done with electric impulses and a machine to knock Ash out of it, taking down every last one of his mental guards (the original Pokémon in the movie). In Ash’s mind, Mewtwo and his clones were the treatment for the mental safe guards that were protecting Ash and keeping him comatose; the Pokémon of his world. The clones were counters to Ash’s mental safeties, and so each appeared to Ash as the exact copy of his defense, intended to take it down by Force. The clones didn’t play by the rules of Ash’s world, they didn’t use any special Pokémon attacks or moves – they just beat down their counterpart by brute strength. The treatment was working, but there were side effects. The electric jolts were beginning to affect Ash’s nervous system, and if the treatment continued, he would be paralyzed. His mind realized this and manifested it to Ash by petrifying him in his dream. Were it not for the end of the treatment by Ash’s mother (knowing her son would never want to live in a world he couldn’t explore) Ash would have remained as stone in his dream. After this, Ash needed to recover from the damage of the electric therapy. Obviously it was greatly dangerous to him, and in order to reduce the danger Ash’s consciousness felt from it, Ash’s subconscious began downplaying the effects of electricity in Ash’s world, which is why Pikachu’s electric attacks -once noted for their strength by Team Rocket – no longer have any effect on Ash, other than comic relief.

    Even the world Ash lives in evidences this. The sprawling forests and eco friendly cities are all his childish innocence. He never travels on a bike despite the distance due to the accident having given him a phobia of them.

    As one could see, it is very likely that Ash is trapped in his world. But like every dream, everything, there is a beginning and an end. What would happen if Ash could fully recover? What would happen if he never does? There are infinite branches of possibilities that spiral upwards and intertwine towards the top at a single point, both in his “world” and the real world. In his hospital room, we see Delia, obviously distraught talking to a doctor with a grim look in his eye. He’s saying that their insurance is up, and the boy has had no change in brain activity for seven years. That a shock like this may awaken him. She tearfully agrees.

    Professor Oak is there to comfort her as they take Ash off life support.

    In Ash’s “world”.

    Ash has finally defeated the elite four, and one by one the people around him start disappearing. eventually everything is black. Pikachu comes dashing towards him glowing brighter and brighter in the darkness. Eventually Pikachu reaches ash and the two embrace one last time.

    Back in his room, as his life signs fade, Ash mutters his genuine, final words.



    The image of his gaunt, tube-fed, ten-some-year bed ridden body on the bed. His head appears bulbous from atrophy. As he utters his last words, he barely opens his eyes, seeing a silhouette of the figure at the center of his turbulent emotions, his mother, her face obstructed by her hands wiping away tears. He makes contact with her eyes and lets out one last tear before losing all strength. She breaks down in hysterics.

    The worst part of all this is that Ash will die, never having experienced actual love, imagine if you will, having lived in a world like his, completely shut off from all things but yourself, and your perception of yourself, with nothing but better yourself. No other people to interact with and issues to solve with no guiding hand.

    The boy will die, never having known his dream, except as naught but a dream. The second he gets out into reality for that last moment, part of him knows it was all a lie, his faithful Pikachu? His friends? All his imagination, and maybe, he could have fought and clung to life, maybe even made a full recovery. But knowing that his efforts and ambitions had all been for naught, he just gave up and let the motion carry him away, just so he could be with Pikachu, in a place where his friends were waiting.

    I would like to think that he’ll realize that his mother loved him and was holding out hope that he’d recover all that time. On the flip side, though, when he sees her he knows that the hope she had is totally broken and she’d come to the crushing realization that the worst thing that can befall a parent has happened to her: outliving her only child. At once he knows he is loved and that it means that the one closest to him is utterly crushed.

    Still, there are other possibilities. The fountain of time flows in mysterious ways. One could not go back, against the current such as Gatsby; but, one could never see what is waiting for him downstream. Ash finally defeats Lance, only to be confronted by not Gary Oak, but a mute, mirror image of himself.

    The voice of the narrator speaks to him, telling him that now he can finally escape the prison of his own mind. One by one, his friends appear and melt away into more copies of him, all cheering him on. After a long tough battle against himself with the assistance of all of his Pokémon he had ever befriended, he jolts awake.

    In his hospital room he sees his parents asleep; he finds himself unable to speak.

    Ash pushes forward towards his recovery. Going through physical therapy, training harder and harder with rehabilitative Pokémon, until he can walk on his own again. This time, an older and wiser ash sets out on a journey. Just like last time, he’s late getting to Professor Oak’s laboratory. And when there’s only one Pokémon left….He suddenly recalls all his memories of his “life” and realizes that all his friends are gone forever.

    As he sets out with his new companion, he finds the world is darker than he imagined. More “real”, Pokémon and people die; he too has aged.

    He vows to become the Master he dreamed he was. He vows to himself.

    He vows to “them”.

    I WILL be the very best!

    8) [MECHANICS] Look familiar?



    The area in real-life Japan where the games' region lines up is also called Kanto.
    Saffron City is located in the same place on this map as Tokyo.
    Goldenrod City is located in the same place as Kyoto.
    Mount Silver is located where the real-life Mount Fuji is.
    Cinnabar Island is located on the island of Izu Oshima. If you recall, Cinnabar Island is destroyed by a volcanic eruption between the first and second generations. Izu Oshima is home to Mount Mihara, which is a volcano.
    Vermillion City is located where the real-life city of Yokohama stands.
    Cianwood City is the only city whose corresponding real-life city is not considered part of Honshu, but rather of Shikoku. It corresponds with the city of Tokushima.

    Hoenn is actually turned sideways to fit onto that map. It's on the island of Kyushu.
    The city of Slateport corresponds with the real-life location of Nagasaki.
    Mossdeep City is located on the real-life island of Tanegashima. Just like Mossdeep City is home to the Space Center, so Tanegashima is home to Tanegashima Space Center.
    Sootopolis City is located on the real-life island of Yakushima. Yakushima's biggest mountain is Miyanoura-dake, which may or may not be volcanic. I'll let you know when I find out.
    Evergrande City is located on the real-life island of Amami Oshima, where (I'm not making this up), a species of deadly poisonous snake lives and mongooses are trained to kill them. Sound familiar?

    Sinnoh in reality is the island of Hokkaido, which is Japan's largest prefecture. The capital of Hokkaido is Sapporo, which is located in roughly the same location on that map as Jubilife City.
    The port city of Otaru in Hokkaido corresponds with the location of Canalave City. The islands where one can catch Darkrai and Cresselia correspond with the locations of Teuri Island and Yagishiri Island.
    The Pokemon League is located on the island of Kunashiri. Unlike that spot in the game, this island is volcanic.
    Mount Asahi is in the same location on that map as Mount Coronet.

    I think we all should know that Unova is based on New York City.

    9) [JOHTO] Subliminal Messaging



    This is an overview map of the Goldenrod City Gym in Pokemon G/S/C. See anything Pokemon-like?

    10) [HUMOR] You will never be able to unsee this:

    Take a look at Diglett, and look at it’s “nose”. See that little white spot. Yep, that’s actually a tooth.

    Default Pokemon Conspiracy Theories

    Pokemon Conspiracy Theories Part II

    [1st GEN] 11) The world of Pokémon was ravaged by a generation-killing war

    There’s a theory floating around the interwebs that paints a dark, horrific history of the Pokémon world, or at least Red/Blue’s Kanto region. Many players have noted that in Pokémon Red/Blue, there is a large absence of middle aged men in the game world. Think about the last time you played Pokémon. An abnormally large amount of Pokémon trainers chillin’ in the wild were little kids. Think about it. Why were there so many damn toddlers roaming the wilds unattended? There were plenty of elderly men and women in the world (Professor Oak), and many middle aged women (the player’s mom, the nurses), but a lack of middle aged men. What about the player’s father, or your rival’s father? While most people wouldn’t worry about the absence of middle aged dudes, some Pokémon fans have rationalized this through the creation of yet another insane theory.

    The electric-type gym leader, Lt. Surge mentions being a survivor of some sort of brutal war that almost took his life (he claims that his Pokémon saved his life). Other trainers in the gym were once soldiers in some sort of army, which presumably fought in a war. A war where Pokémon were used as weapons. Let that sink in for a moment, as you try to imagine the horror of hundreds of terrified soldiers storming beaches being held by goddamn Charizards. Some fans believe this war was the cause of the lack of adult men, claiming that all of them had been killed in the war. Essentially, some people are speculating that this war caused a ‘generation kill’, and that the young children of the Kanto region are the first generation to find peace. This also explains why the player’s father is absent (hint, he died), and why the rival character has no parents (hint, they died). While a lot of this theory involves speculation and imagination, the horrifying idea of a human-Pokémon war that wiped out an entire generation is pretty damn sweet.

    12) [5th GEN] Dark Triad = Cilian, Chili, and Cress

    BUSTED as of Pokemon Black Version 2 and White Version 2

    Besides the obvious there are 5 reasons...
    1. You go to meet one of the three waiters/gym leaders (it depends on which starter you chose) in the Academy... somehow he gets past you without you even knowing. Ninja Skills.
    2. One of the few cities not attacked by Team Plasma is their city. (Unless you count the Dreamyard/Abandoned Lot of Dreams as part of it)
    3. Team Plasma are never shown at the same time as the waiters. (and vise versa)
    4. They are the only gym leaders who do no show up towards the end when the gym leaders battle Team Plasma.
    5. Two of the the waiters/gym leaders don't talk about the incident, and one of them just gives you one short answer.

    13) [1st GEN] Red is a spirit

    Red died some time after the events of Red and Blue. The reason he appears in the most high (apparently) peak of Kanto-Johto is because he wants to cross over to the heavens, but his spirit doesn't want to depart Earth yet because he has to battle the main character in G/S/C in order to feel complete. He feeds on the spirits/souls of lost persons and challangers and will part when, again, the main character beats him. That's the reason of why he doesn't talk.

    14) [4th GEN] The Secret of the Old Chateau

    Quite some time before the events of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl, a man and his wife lived in the Old Chateau. They had a daughter and lived a quiet and peaceful life. There were several butlers working in the Old Chateau. One of them was called Charon. He had a knack for messing around with electrical equipment in the mansion.

    One day, he went into the basement of the mansion to fix an electrical problem from a recent thunderstorm. As Charon was fixing the problem in the basement, he found a peculiar looking object in an unused washing machine. He messed around with the object which he called a "motor". After a couple of days, the motor came to life. Charon realized this certainly was not a motor, but a new species of Pokemon. He called the Pokemon "Rotom" and adopted it as his own.
    Several weeks, later, the man's daughter was having a problem with his microwave. She called on his favorite butler to fix it, but he couldn't do the job, so he called on Charon to help him. Charon didn't know how to fix a microwave either, but he knew that Rotom could transform into one, so Rotom transformed into a microwave.

    Before cooking anything, they decided to test the Rotom microwave. The test went horribly wrong. Flames came bursting out of Rotom's mouth and filled the kitchen with smoke. Charon commanded Rotom to stop, but it couldn't. The smoke was starting to spread throughout all parts of the mansion. There was nothing that can be done except to evacuate. Everyone made it out in time... except for the man's daughter. One of the butlers quickly realized this and went in to find her. The butler eventually found her and realized the girl had been poisoned from the smoke. He searched everywhere in the mansion for medicine. He finally found an Antidote in a trash can, but it was already too late. The butler started choking from the fire and eventually died from suffocation. The girl soon perished from carbon monoxide poisoning.
    Rotom felt emotionally depressed following the event, so he confined himself in a television set for the rest of his life.
    Charon, realizing the trouble and damage he had caused, ran away from the scene and later worked as a scientist for Team Galactic.
    The man's wife was distraught at what had happened so decided to take up Pokemon training. She decided to train with the Ghost-type so she can communicate with her deceased daughter. She later became a Gym Leader in Hearthome City.
    The man... he was just as distraught as his wife. He built a mansion just exactly like the Old Chateau... but it just didn't feel right. He returned to the Old Chateau and retrieved a statue from the entrance hall and the bodies of his daughter and the butler. He placed the statue in his office and the interred the bodies in two separate rooms in his new mansion. No one is allowed to enter those two rooms.
    The ghosts of the butler and the girl still haunt the Old Chateau to this very day. The butler is still desperately trying to find the Antidote, but he does not know that he will reach the girl in time. As for the girl, she is still waiting for the Antidote in her room, but she does not know if she will live.

    15) [1st GEN] The Munna Reference

    From Pokemon Red/Blue. Munna is also referenced in Pokemon FireRed/LeafGreen, but I couldn't find a pic of that.

    16) [HUMOR] Ummmmm....

    17) [1st GEN] Developer's mistake

    18) [EVOLUTION] Messed up Evolution #3

    This one is an expansion on the "Cubone, Kangaskhan and M'" theory.

    19) [ANIME] Ripoff?

    The plot of the television show “Avatar: The Last Airbender” centers around a young boy – I can’t remember his name, but it begins with an A – in his journey to travel the world and master the elements.

    Mastering these elements usually involves a fight of some sort with a master of their respective styles. The boy is not alone in his journey, however. He is joined by a girl who specializes in the element of water and a youth who, while putting on a show of being mature, tends to easily fall for women, along with his fuzzy companions. Their journey is not without challengers, however. As the group travels they often find themselves in the middle of a city’s conflict, and need to find a peaceful resolution to their problem before continuing on their way.
    In addition to that, there is an organization which is constantly attempting to capture them, that also has plans for conquering the entire world. To conquer the challenges ahead of him, the boy must learn valuable lessons of trust and friendship, and can always depend on his friends to help him if he is in need.

    20) [1st GEN] Influencing The Elections

    When you defeat Brock at the Pewter City Gym, he gives you Bide, which is TM08.

    Brock, Bide TM08
    Barack, Biden '08

    Did Game Freak intend to influence the 2008 American presidential elections?

    Default Pokemon Conspiracy Theories

    Pokemon Conspiracy Theories Part III

    21) [5th GEN] Religiously Inspired Pokemon #1

    Giratina is called the Renegade Pokemon in the Pokedex. Renegade is synonymous with "rebellious". Giratina was banished to a different dimension for being violent.
    Satan is often known as the Rebellious One. He was banished by God to Hell for leading a rebellion against God and the angels.

    Giratina in Origin Form resembles a serpent and in Altered form a basilisk. Satan takes the form of a serpent and a basilisk many times in the Bible.

    When in Origin Form, Giratina has 6 wings, 6 rib bones, and 6 spikes.
    When in Altered Form, Giratina has 6 rib bones, 6 spikes, and 6 legs.
    The number of the Devil is 666.

    Was the designer of Giratina trying promote Satanism?

    22) [ANIME] [MANGA] The Brother Theory

    BUSTED, the anime and the manga are two separate canons

    Why is Satoshi/Ash so inept compared to Red?

    It is a gross misconception that they are intended to be the same character in different incarnations. In fact, Red and Ash are brothers. Red is older by a couple of years - so he started his Pokemon journey around the time of the game’s release, and Ash is the younger brother who started his journey around the time of the Anime’s release.
    Where Red took down all of Team Rocket, the most influential crime syndicate in his country, Ash has a constant rivalry with two completely inept members of the organization that don't apparently take any part in the real endeavors of Team Rocket.

    Red is a Pokemon Master. He defeated the Elite Four, even uncovering a lot of their double standards as Team Rocket members.
    Ash has not defeated one league yet.

    The reason for Ash’s incompetence is that he has some learning difficulties/mental retardation. However, he looks up to Red completely and is living his life trying to be just like his big brother and idol.

    This is why Gary/Green has no interest in Ash whatsoever. He had his fight with Red, and now occasionally meets Ash along his journey, essentially to check up on him.
    This is why Brock and Misty, two Gym Leaders, who have an important job to do in their own towns abandoned their posts to travel with Ash. Red had told them about his brother, and they recognized him, and traveled with him to look out for him and keep him relatively out of trouble when Red couldn’t.

    Once Red became a Pokemon Master, he went missing. It wasn’t until three years later that he was found up Mt. Silver.
    After Red's defeat on Mt. Silver, he sent Pikachu back to Pallet Town to be with Ash. Pikachu didn’t like it, but knew Red was concerned about his brother.
    That’s why Pikachu is so wildly overpowered, despite having no obvious training from Ash. Pikachu of course becomes attached to his new ‘trainer’ and wants to protect him.

    Essentially, Red paved the whole way for his simple minded brother, becoming a champion along the way. Most, if not all, the other characters that knew both brothers were playing their part to take care of Ash.

    23) [HISTORY] A History of the Pokemon World (2027-2081)

    You can call this a prequel to Pokemon Conspiracy #11.

    January 22, 2027: Dr. Hagiru Sato and his team of scientists from Japan, America, Canada, and Britain begin work on a matter-energy transference machine.

    February 11, 2030: First machine is tested successfully after over a hundred failed tests. Controversy over the destructive nature of the technology ignites.

    December 21, 2032: A catastrophic incident with an energy-matter machine destroys the city of Hiroshima, in devastation not seen since the atomic bombs were dropped nearly 90 years prior. Japanese government officials move to ban work on the technology, though Western powers urge them to allow it, despite the mishap.

    April 22, 2035: First sighting of infected individuals. Most are animals; some humans are also shown to be susceptible to infection. Most seen around the ruins of Hiroshima, which had not been rebuilt.

    May 13, 2035: Northern Japan is split off from its Southern half, as a nation-wide quarantine is enacted. Anarchy soon spreads through the infection regions. 15% of humans exposed to the disease are immune, no side effect. 84.9% are affected fatally by the disease, which causes cancerous-growths. .1% of those exposed are shown to successfully mutate. The “virus” is found to be a spreadable corruption of genetic material, which causes rapid mutation in infected individuals. All large animal life above ground is soon infected.

    January 1, 2040: 98% of all animals in Japan are wiped out, ecosystems ruled entirely by infected individuals.

    May 8, 2048: Japanese Defense Force engages infected individuals to preserve quarantine. Coordinated attacks by infected humans and animals are seen. High levels of intelligence confirmed.

    May 10, 2048: They fail, and the nation of Japan ceases to exist.

    October 13, 2048: The United States Carrier George W. Bush is attacked and sunk by an unknown force. Later revealed to be a coordinated assault by the infected. Use of atomic weapons to destroy all life on Japan considered, but denied.

    February 12, 2052: Remaining inhabitants of Japan have appeared, by outward observers, to begin adopting the infected into their religions. Part of this religion is a total weapons bad, and the banning of violence against infected individuals. This is surprisingly effective at ceasing conflict with infected individuals.

    April 2, 2055: Infected seen to have spread to North America. Military preparedness results in a far more contained infection. Hundreds of thousands in the United States, Canada, and Mexico die.

    March 11, 2061: The United States Army begins experimenting with the combat prowess of infected animals, which are shown to have a friendly connection to humans who treat them well, much like dogs. Initial tests exceed expectations. Later that same year, China, Russia, Vietnam, and N. Korea react by signing the Kommu Pact, ensuring protection against the now utterly overpowered West.

    July 2, 2063: The Kommu alliance declares war on the United States. Infected used to great effect.

    November 9, 2066: War end. Communist states dissolved, China and Russia (and all of Asia) are now under the jurisdiction of the NATO.

    December 25, 2072: The regions, now divided, that were once Japan begin to open up to the outside world. Mostly through scientific trade off.

    February 1, 2081: Japanese scientists sneak into heavily infected Brazil. They recover the DNA of one of the individuals believed to be one of the first infected.

    Beliefs are that the infected are actually the next phase in evolution, and to find one of the originals would better help the understanding. There are many tried and failed cloning attempts, before a final experiment is successful. The result of this experiment, capable of self-induced Energy-Matter transference, is responsible for the deaths of dozens before escaping.

    May 22, 2081: Ash Ketchum turns 10 years old.

    24) [5th GEN] The 9/11 Reference

    Credit goes to shyguy33 for finding this one.

    Pokemon Black and White introduces a new game environment, a bustling metropolis based on New York City. That's not just us saying that: "[D]irector Junichi Masuda revealed that Unova (Isshu) was modeled after New York City; the games' Castelia City takes the place of Lower Manhattan and the Sky Arrow Bridge serves as a stand in for the Brooklyn Bridge."

    Neat, huh? Let's take a look at the map! So there's the Brooklyn Bridge, and there's Central Park, and there's Manhattan, and right below is ...


    Oh, dear.

    So, how does Pokemon choose to depict the sensitive, emotionally charged setting of Ground Zero, a literal scar on our greatest city, left by our nation's most profound contemporary tragedy?

    Obviously, they can't say the devastation was caused by terrorists. So they concocted a story about a falling meteor -- an object of unspeakable power that was quarantined by the government and is now being coveted by Team Plasma. Even weirder, another meteor dropped this Pokemon near the city.

    Why do we bring him up? Take a look at his Wiki article. His official height is given as 9 feet 11 inches.


    So, hey kids, gotta catch 'em all! Especially that new, super-rare Pokemon that is both the very embodiment of and directly responsible for 9/11.

    Credit goes to BrandonMBrownson for finding this one.

    28) [1st GEN] Religiously Inspired Pokemon #2

    Is Game Freak attempting to promote Satanism with Alakazam?

    29) [MECHANICS] Stockholm Syndrome

    The game is essentially about Stockholm syndrome. Humans catch Pokemon, use them to battle, keep their souls in small capsules, and yet, the Pokemon love their trainers after time and even evolve to serve them better.

    30) [5th GEN] N Harmonia is a Zoroark

    Hair style is very similar.

    Can communicate with pokemon.

    When you access the memory link with BW, and you go inside the Ex-Plasma base in BW2 (next to Driftviel Gym), Zoroark shows you a memory of N acknowledging that nobody should be forced to choose between Black and White, good v evil...its already clear to people. Zoroark, however, is nowhere in the memory. How would Zoroark know these things?

    Zoroark shows you where N's castle is. When you go inside, Zoroark is gone, but N is there. (Illusion wore off?)

    There is a King's Rock in N's castle. Ghetsis talks about N being the 'king'. Considering the King's Rock is an item held by pokemon, and N is the one with the King-like item, it makes sense.

    Default Pokemon Conspiracy Theories

    Pokemon Conspiracy Theories Part IV

    31) [MECHANICS] The Effectiveness of Bubblebeam

    It’s not the water of the bubbles that hurt enemy Pokémon; it’s the moist air inside them.

    Before firing, the Pokémon inhales. The air it gathers mixes with the water in its body and super compressed into bubbles.

    But these bubbles can only hold for their orb-ness for about a second before popping. So the Pokémon spits them out as fast as it can, ergo like a beam.

    When the bubbles pop, they actually explode and spread blasts of concentrated moist air at the target.
    So bubblebeam is like a cloud of tiny grenades.

    Pokemon saliva may act as an extra layer of thickness, which allows for higher air pressure.

    32) [MECHANICS] Fresh Water's Potency

    Let's assume that the Pokemon War did happen and that it was a nuclear war. Several consequences come with nuclear wars including fallout from the areas bombs were dropped on. What if all of the water in the Pokemon World was irradiated? This would explain why fresh water is so expensive, much more effective at healing than a potion, and why Pokemon can't sip from a water source instead of using a potion or going to the Pokemon Center to get healed.

    33) [5th GEN] Religiously Inspired Pokemon #3

    According the to Bulbapedia, during the course of its evolution Snivy gradually lost its legs. At the start of Paradise Lost, Lucifer/Satan looks like the rest of his fellow angels, with the notable exception that he is "fallen" since he has gone against God. When he returns to Hell from Earth after tempting Eve, and thus Adam, in the guise of a serpent, he and the other demons receive their punishment: turning into snakes.

    Serperior's Dream World Ability is Contrary. According to Bulbapedia, the ability's Japanese name is "Devil's Advocate."

    Serperior's name is supposedly a combination of "Serpent" and "Superior" (Or "Warrior," which, although a bit of a stretch, might make sense). This makes sense since Satan is not only associated with the Serpent, but also as the ruler, and thus most "superior" being, of Hell.

    Serperior is a Grass type, although there isn't any indication in the name. Perhaps this was because of the Serpent's association with the Tree of Knowledge?

    34) [ANIME] Ash's Age #2

    At least one day passes in a Pokemon episode, normally at the end of the episode as well, which means that each episode is one day. In some episodes, two or more days can pass but only a few that it won't effect results drastically. ~760 episodes of Pokemon have aired so far, meaning that almost 2 and a half years have passed since Ash began his journey, so I submit to you that Ash has only slightly changed. Comparing him from is present to past counter part this can be seen by hair length and other slight changes.

    This would put Ash anywhere from 12 to 14 years old as of 2012.

    35) [EVOLUTION] Messed up evolution #4

    36) [MECHANICS] Just like us

    All of Psychic's weaknesses are common fears. Fear of ghosts, fear of the dark and fear of bugs are all common fears, and since psychic has to do with the mind, it would make sense why they're good against it.

    37) [EVOLUTION] Cubone is not a baby Kangaskhan

    Here's a different take on the baby Kangaskhan theory.

    In the real world, boomerangs were used to hunt kangaroos.

    Theory: Marowak have various tribes all over the world, and when these tribes were beginning to be formed, to tell the difference between members of the tribe, the original members all went on a mass hunt of Kangaskahn, took their skulls, gave them tribe markings, and used them as headdresses.

    When each member pass away, their eldest child took their headdress and wore it, part in remembrance, and part to honour tradition. This practice still continues to the present day.

    We interpreted the Pokedex entry wrong, they don't wear the skull of their ancestor, they wear the skull their ancestor wore as a headdress.

    38) [EVOLUTION] Is Deoxys a... canonized Missingno?

    Missingno is a glitch, which are tangentially related to computer viruses, while Deoxys was a biological virus that had been mutated by a satellite. Likewise, both Missingno and the Normal form of Deoxys have massive offensive stats but nearly non-existent defensive stats. Missingno also appeared in Generation I, and while Deoxys did exist in the Ruby/Sapphire data, it was not until the remakes of Generation I that there was an event to capture him.

    Pokemon Conspiracy Theories Part V

    41) [1st GEN] Nuzlocker Blue

    Blue/Gary was actually a Nuzlocker. He made a special rule after the first battle he had that his battles against you didn't count. He lost his Raticate, yes, but in an unrelated battle after the SS Anne. He's not a bad trainer; he's an extremely good Nuzlocker who has only ever lost to one person: you.

    42) [DITTO/MEW] Ditto is NOT a Failed Mew

    So how does the Mew/Ditto work any way other than going off of the stats (strengths in categories) and the color? Other Pokemon could have the same stats as Mew, but you would never call them to be failed attempts of Mew. This, combined with the fact that Cinnabar is the only lab that had such a major accident that the lab had to be abandoned. This would result as it to be the only area where failed/in-progress experiments could be outside the testing area.
    Thus, the radiation/psychic energy given off by the lab after it was abandoned stimulated the stem cell clusters to life, without the cells first forming, and giving them the ability to copy other Pokemon (just like organs in real life), yet also return to their amorphous state.

    43) [1st GEN] Origins of Mewtwo #1

    Katsuhiro Otomo's Akira was written in the mid-80s with an animated film adaptation in 1988. Pocket Monsters, as an idea, sprung up at least in 1990. In Akira, scientists try to replicate the insanely powerful, but child-like psychic named Akira by experimenting on an angsty, older boy named Tetsuo. When Tetsuo's psychic powers go out of the scientists' control, he desires to confront Akira, to see who is more powerful. In Pokemon, the psychic-type Mewtwo was created by scientists to replicate the psychic-type, child-like Mew and also went out of control. In the anime film, Mewtwo also wishes to face Mew in battle, and also has his share of angst.

    44) [6th GEN] Sound and Light Types

    This theory is merely speculation and will be either confirmed or busted upon the release of Pokemon X and Y.

    45) [HISTORY] Mass Extinction

    Credit goes to ninja1121 for submitting this theory.

    46) [1st GEN] Analysis of Generation I, Part 1/5: Origin of Red and Blue

    After his work on the Mewtwo project, Professor Oak made multiple attempts at bioengineering a human clone. The first successful attempt used a 650 nanometer laser, which produced a subject that, while biologically human, lacked human emotion. Professor Oak made a second attempt using a 475 nanometer laser. This produced a more refined, more "human" subject who could easily be mistaken for a perfectly ordinary and rambunctious young boy. The first subject was implanted in a surrogate mother living in the town of Pallet, while the second subject matured entirely in Oak's laboratory. The subjects were named "Red" and "Blue" after the colors of the lasers used in their creation. Postpartum, the surrogate requested to raise subject Red. Professor Oak obliged, and chose to raise subject "Blue" as his own grandson.

    47) [1st GEN] Analysis of Generation I, Part 2/5: Pokeball Mechanics

    A Pokeball leaks radiation proportional to the mass of the Pokemon contained within, and the amount of radiation that the human trainer can safely withstand is proportional to their own body mass. This is why many young trainers like Youngsters and Lasses have lightweight Pokemon like Rattata and Jigglypuff, while heavy Pokemon like Geodude and Onix are always carried by a large and muscular Hikers. Of course, the radiation of those balls adds up, so most people are only capable of carrying three or four Pokeballs at a time, if that many. Gym leaders, being in a static location, don't have to carry their Pokemon on their person, and not being in constant close proximity to their Pokeballs, they can usually get away with using up to five. Red and Blue, being genetically engineered superhumans, have the strength to carry up to six Pokeballs at a time.

    48) [1st GEN] Analysis of Generation I, Part 3/5: Experience Gain

    When Pokemon participate in battle, an adrenaline-like response kicks in, allowing the use of combat abilities like summoning lightning or breathing fire. As this happens, Pokemon exude large amounts of radiation. Their adrenal response also leaves them susceptible to radiation exuded by opposing Pokemon during combat. This radiation causes Pokemon to mutate, and the extent of these mutations is proportional to the strength of the opponent. Face a terrifyingly-strong opponent, and high radiation levels and increased susceptibility will lead to rampant mutations. Weaker foes, conversely, will have little impact on a Pokemon's physique.
    These mutations cumulatively add to a Pokemon's strength, and sometimes manifest themselves in the form of increased abilities or appendages. For example, Bulbasaur might sprout some vines, allowing it to use the move Vine Whip. Other times, the mutation is more drastic, causing a Pokemon to mutate into an entirely new form. (Also known as evolution)
    Although "leveling up" is the usual way for Pokemon to evolve or learn new skills, there are also artificial stimulants that can be used to enhance a Pokemon's combat abilities. You can call them "performance enhancing drugs" if you like, but "Technical Machine" also works. Evolution stones are just high concentrations of chemicals that cause certain Pokemon to mutate.

    49) [1st GEN] Analysis of Generation I, Part 4/5: Emperors of Kanto

    The Kanto region is controlled by four elite emperors, otherwise known as the Elite Four. Kanto is governed under what is essentially a feudal system, with local rulers residing in "Gyms," surrounded by loyal followers/apprentices. The Elite Four is aware of the possibility of a trainer raising Pokemon even more powerful than their own. To prevent such an individual from attempting to stage a violent revolution, the Elite Four has extended a generous offer: anyone who is able to beat them is allowed to join their ranks. Many trainers dream of becoming rulers of the world, but few possess the skill needed to make it even past the first few gyms.

    50) [1st GEN] Analysis of Generation I, Part 5/5: Red, the Champion Despot

    After conquering the Elite Four, Red became its leader. However, lacking understanding of things like human emotion, he was horribly unfit for the role of leader. Red became known as a despot, inspiring the hatred of all of Kanto. Under his leadership, the skills of the Elite Four atrophied. Red was blind to the rumblings of rebellion throughout Kanto, but was not blind to the fact that his skills as a trainer were growing dull. To rectify this, he planned a hiatus during which he could train alone on Mount Silver.
    At the time that the Elite Four's skills were atrophying, the Kanto gym leaders continued to gain strength. Eventually, Red was the only member of the Elite Four who was stronger than any of the Kanto gym leaders, and when Red left for Mount Silver, the Kanto Gym leaders staged a rebellion. Lorelei and Agatha were either killed or fled into hiding. Bruno, being among the more benevolent rulers of the Elite Four, was allowed to stay. The Kanto gym leaders were not able to defeat Lance's powerful dragons, but after seeing Agatha and Lorelei disappear/get killed, Lance admitted that he had no desire to see the current system continue. The Kanto gym leaders allowed Lance to stay as league champion, and stationed one of their own, Koga, on the new Elite Four. (Koga's daughter, Jasmine, replaced him in the Fuchsia City gym.) Red, meanwhile, continued his training atop Mount Silver. He remained in total isolation until three years later, when he received his first human visitor: a young boy named Gold.

    Default Pokemon Conspiracy Theories

    Pokemon Conspiracy Theories Part VI

    51) [6th GEN] Team Flare are based off Nazis

    Kalos, which Team Flare occupies, is based off of France which the Nazis had occupied during World War II.

    Team Flare wants to create a "beautiful world" which to them means killing off all weak Pokemon and preserving only the perfect creatures.

    Their leader, Lysandre, is extremely charismatic and believes that people should exist based on physical and ideological factors.

    Lysandre destroys his headquarters while he is inside it and is buried under the rubble. Whether or not he was killed beneath that rubble is unknown.

    52) [6th GEN] "No, you're not the one..."

    The mysterious Hex Girl in Lumiose City is actually a Latias trying to find a trainer for both itself and Latios.

    According to the Latias' Pokedex entries for FireRed and LeafGreen, "It can telepathically communicate with people. It changes its appearance using its down that refracts light" and according to the Pokedex entries for Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, "Its body is covered in a down that can refract light in such a way that it becomes invisible". These entries may explain how the Hex Girl was able to appear out of the blue and vanish without a trace.

    Latias' ability is Levitate which may also explain how the Hex Girl was able to float.

    53) [6th GEN] Mega Gengar's third eye

    Mega Gengar has a pretty weird transformation. It goes from a relatively humanoid shape to a quadrupedal form. That alone may seem pretty normal; however, it also gains a third eye.

    Normal Gengar has no hint of a third eye, so where does it come from? Gengar's ability changes to Shadow Tag when it Mega Evolves. Shadow Tag traps the opponent forcing the opponent to stay in the battle. A move with the same effect? Mean Look.

    The animation for Mean Look always features a glaring eye which may also be the function of Gengar's third eye. It's a permanent Mean Look.

    54) [6th GEN] Natural vs. Artificial

    Mega Evolution is a new transformation found only in the Kalos Region. Certain Pokemon react to Mega Stones and can temporarily evolve into a more powerful Pokemon. A couple of these Pokemon, specifically Charizard and Mewtwo, have two Mega Evolution forms.

    Why do these two Pokemon have two Mega Evolution forms? According to /u/Don_Bonnigan on the Pokemon Conspiracies sub-reddit:

    "I think it's meant to be Natural evolution, as in real life evolution (Y) vs. Human induced evolution, a la genetic modification (X).

    Look at the two split evolutions for example:

    Mega Charizard Y, bears a strong resemblance to Charizard. Same color, with a few additions to it like spikes, spines and extra wings. It also looks slightly larger. It looks like the next course in the species' evolution.

    Now take Mega Charizard X. Color change, but the actual physical appearance is similar to Charizard. The only changes are the wings, which are changed to a less productive design, and the horns with the blue tips on it's shoulders and head. In addition, there are blue flames both on it's tail and bursting out of it's mouth, implying that the heat in it's body is not just much hotter than a regular Charizard's but also more than it can contain. It looks like less than what a Charizard could turn into and more like some scientist thought "Hey, you know what would make Charizard better?" and went to work.

    Next, Look at Mewtwo, a pokemon made through genetic splicing. Mega Mewtwo Y looks much more similar to the the pokemon it was designed to be, Mew. It is essentially becoming more pure, removing it's genetic differences and returning to it's true species.
    Mega Mewtwo X, on the other hand, does the opposite. It looks less like Mew, becoming taller, more upright and bulkier, once again, it makes it look stronger and tougher, but it's distancing itself from the pokemon it was designed to be.

    O_O Lol, I never knew this. Also, if the theory about his dream were true...why would the developers not tell us?

    Nice article. ^_^

    How about using the Clear Browsing History button?

    Also, with Unova, a lot of these theories have become false.
