Welcome to Pokemon Conspiracy Theories! This thread is a collection of creepypasta, fanfic and theories based on what seem to be normal events in the Pokemon universes. If you would like to submit a theory, feel free to post it in this thread.
Just several rules if you want to post a theory here:
1) Any theory that relates between the anime, the games, and the manga are automatically BUSTED. Those three are considered to be separate canons/parallel universes.
2) Fanfic stories or creepypastas that do not offer a theory for its basis may be BUSTED.
3) Anything that Nintendo has confirmed at the time of the submission of your theory is not at theory at all.
4) All theories must be accompanied by a title and a picture.
5) PLEASE REFRAIN FROM RE-POSTING THEORIES. If you're gonna submit a theory, make sure no one else has posted it on this thread.
There theories posted here that break one or more of the above rules, but those were posted a long time ago. I'm just trying to set a standard so we can get higher quality theories posted here.
Also, all theories will be tagged with one of the following tags:
[I: RGBY] Theories that deal with Generation I of Pokemon games directly.
[II: GSC] Theories that deal with Generation II of Pokemon games direct.
[II: RSE/FRLG] Theories that deal with Generation III of Pokemon games directly.
[IV: DPPt/HGSS] Theories that deal with Generation IV of Pokemon games directly.
[V: BW/B2W2] Theories that deal with Generation V of Pokemon games directly.
[VI: XY] Theories that deal with Generation VI of Pokemon games directly.
[EVOLUTION] Theories that discuss the evolutions of certain Pokemon.
[MECHANICS] Theories that deal with game mechanics.
[META] Theories that deal with the video game series itself rather than its contents.
[HISTORY] Theories about the history of the Pokemon world.
[HUMOR] Joke theories that have no backing evidence (different from a bad theory).
[DITTO/MEW] Theories that discuss the relationship between Ditto and Mew.
[ANIME] Theories that deal with the original Pokemon anime.
[ORIGINS] Theories that deal with the Pokemon Origins anime.
[MANGA] Theories that deal with the Pokemon Adventures manga.
Remember, this is all speculation... or is it? Discuss!
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) [1st GEN] Player kills Blue's (Gary's) Raticate
3) [1st GEN] 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) [1st GEN] 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. Here's the link:
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.
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) [2nd GEN] 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.
