** Perhaps instead of the ultimate Pokemon master, the professors are creating robotic superheroes/special agents. They're programmed with the goal of filling the pokedex and (subliminally) becoming the Champion so they will amass a team of powerful pokes, and they are made in the appearance of [[KidHero innocent children]] so that they will make an [[GenreSavvy appealing target to bad guys]]. This didn't work with Ghetsis, so they made the robot a teenager instead, since teenagers are even ''better'' at getting into trouble.

Ever notice how we never see Ghetsis' right arm, and if you look close enough at the right side of his face, there's no hint of an eyebrow? While [[EyepatchOfPower he may or may not have a right eye]], his right arm is either missing or paralysed. The reason he doesn't show it is a mixture of [[GenreSavvy trying to hide]] [[RedRightHand any indication of a villainous personality]] and personal vanity. As for how this happened, my guess is that his Zwelious didn't take kindly to evolving at Lv 54.

** Though ''if'' Giovanni joins Plasma (which I highly doubt), he will probably plan some way to take over after Ghestis loses his sanity, because he's too GenreSavvy not to see it.

When N was a young kid, his biological parents considered him a freak for talking with Pokemon and abandoned him in the woods. Ghetsis [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy wanted to make sure his pawn would stay loyal]], and to do so wanted him to have the following qualities: empathetic to Pokemon, needing of a parent and from a bad enough background they'd accept Ghetsis [[AbusiveParents despite his behavior.]] Ghetsis would seem like a saint compared to N's actual mother and father, and as such would accept his controlling nature. Even in BW2, N still wants to see Ghetsis redeemed because he didn't leave him to die([[FridgeHorror well, not yet]]). Anthea and Concordia are a different story; they are actual orphans, and don't have same baggage with their parents than N does. As such, they are a lot less tolerant of Ghetsis' parenting.

*** The WMG says "siblings", not "brother and sister"; they could still be cousins.

* Even before [=B2W2=] it was Jossed because he clearly doesn't follow the second rule of "Only catch the first pokemon you see on a route"

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: The Subway Bosses are on the autism spectrum.]]
Both of them have limited, passionate interests (both are into trains and Pokemon battling; Emmet in particular is very fond of double battles and most of his dialogue is related to them). Additionally, both have rigid, systematic manners of speaking and [[VerbalTic verbal tics]]: Ingo speaks too formally, Emmet speaks in very simple sentences, and both rely on train terminology and expressions to help communicate their thoughts. Neither emotes much, with Ingo bring a PerpetualFrowner and Emmet being a PerpetualSmiler. It's likely that the two of them have social difficulties, and their line of work is relevant to their special interests while also factoring in a good amount of routine and limiting long social encounters. Emmet's characteristics are more pronounced than Ingo's and he seems to speak to the protagonist less directly than his brother, which may indicate that they are in different places on the spectrum.

* {{Jossed}}, at least in terms of the [[VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2 new forms that we got]]. They're both still Dragon/Ice even after being fused. It would make sense if the Original Dragon was Dragon/Water, though, but unfortunately we still haven't gotten to see it yet.

[[WMG: N's real parents are just as bad as Ghetsis.]]
When N was a young kid, his biological parents considered him a freak for talking with Pokemon and abandoned him in the woods. Ghetsis [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy wanted to make sure his pawn would stay loyal]], and to do so wanted him to have the following qualities: empathetic to Pokemon, needing of a parent and from a bad enough background they'd accept Ghetsis [[AbusiveParents despite his behavior.]] Ghetsis would seem like a saint compared to N's actual mother and father, and as such would accept his controlling nature. Even in BW2, N still wants to see Ghetsis redeemed because he didn't leave him to die([[FridgeHorror well, not yet]]).

\n\n[[WMG: Ghetsis is Asexual.]]
He's skilled at manipulation, so he could've just produced a child instead of stealing N. However, Ghetsis simply wasn't interested in women or the idea of sex, even for the purpose of ThePlan. He decided instead to just "adopt."

[[WMG: Ghetsis is a [[BlueBlood descendant of Unova's founders]] ]]
The "royalty" thing he has isn't a facade. Ghetsis is a recognized descendant of Unova's kings, with N's Castle and other valuables being things he's inherited. [[VillainWithGoodPublicity People trust him at first]] because he's of noble descent, which also makes him rich and knowledgeable. Unfortunately for Ghetsis, the monarchy was abolished centuries ago and while it gives him respect it doesn't give him any political power. ItsAllAboutMe for Ghetsis because as he has the blood of Unovan royalty, he feels entitled to control over Unova.


Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: Genesect [[GroinAttack wasn't revived with genitals.]] ]]
Genesect is an enhanced version of a non-legendary bug, not an actual legendary like the Mew/Mewtwo relationship. The original Genesect used to have genders, and be in the Bug egg group, but [[BodyHorror lost some of its original biology when it became a cyborg.]] Team Plasma wasn't interested in breeding Genesect, so they didn't bother keeping that part of its anatomy. This was just one of a number of reasons why N disapproved of the project.

[[WMG: Genesect was constructed to best Mewtwo.]]
Its typing gives it an advantage over Mewtwo, and because its incomplete it could've been as strong/stronger than Mewtwo.
