In addition, it is never explicitly made clear whether the two timelines involving Mega Evolution or lack thereof is actually canon. We know that Zinnia isn't an entirely honest or trustworthy person, considering that she goes around the region stealing from people and talking to them in a mischievous manner during the Delta Episode, so it's entirely possible that she made the theory up. After all, she probably couldn't have known about the existence of any alternate timelines unless she had somehow managed to travel to such a dimension in the past, and evidence is provided that she has an active imagination (such as seeming to have imaginary conversations with her Whismur in a rather ComicStrip/{{Calvin And Hobbes}}-esque manner).

There's also the fact that his Japanese name is the same as [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angelica_acutiloba a herb]] -- perhaps the ValuesDissonance made the translators decide that his English version is embarrassed of his equally 'flowery' name and make everybody call him Brawly to get away from that?

We also know that Zinn isn't fond of Steven or the Devon Corporation for whatever reason, so her destroying the device meant to warp the meteoroid away and justifying the act with the timeline theory may well have been done so that they wouldn't be taking credit for saving the world.

[[WMG: There is no alternate timeline, or at least it isn't simply split between a Mega-Evolution-Universe and a No-Mega-Evolution universe.]]
The timeline theory proposed by Zinnia was made to explain why there are no Mega Evolutions prior to Generation VI. However, it doesn't explain other inconsistencies in the Pokemon continuity such as why given Pokemon are never even mentioned (with a few exceptions such as the implied existence of Regigigas in Hoenn's Sealed Chamber) until the generation in which they are introduced.

There are two possible explanations: The first is that every individual save file of Pokemon could take place in an alternate universe from one another and the owners of multiple games can weld the continuity of their games together in any way they choose (e.g. connecting the events of their X or Y file with their Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire file). The result is many, rather than just two, alternate timelines where Mega Evolution may or may not exist or simply hasn't been discovered in a given time or region.
The second is that every game prior to the release of their remakes (e.g. Ruby and Sapphire before their Gen VI remakes) is a condensed or fabricated version of what actually happened and we are only told what the player character remembers or wants to tell us (e.g. Gen III's Brendan or May may not want to talk about Zinnia because she scared them with her unnerving behavior.

[[WMG: The meteor from the Delta Episode is an alternate version of the one from the Mystery Dungeon games]]
In the Delta Episode, the scientists at the Space Center originally plan to warp the meteor away to another world, but Zinnia stops them because it could potentially end up headed towards a world that couldn't avert the impact, plus they have Rayquaza to blow up meteors in the ''ORAS'' continuity. The protagonist gets drawn into the conflict, catches Rayquaza, and uses Rayquaza's Mega Evolution to blow up the meteor, encountering Deoxys in the process.

Meanwhile, in ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonRescueTeam'', the natural disasters rocking the planet are signs of an impending meteor. The protagonist was brought to this world and turned into a Pokémon to resolve this crisis, which they accomplish by getting Rayquaza to blow up the meteor. Furthermore, the remains of the meteor end up impacting the planet elsewhere (presumably, Rayquaza wasn't able to destroy the meteor as thoroughly since it didn't have the added power boost of a Mega Evolution), creating Meteor Cave, a dungeon populated solely by transparent Deoxys mirages with the ''real'' Deoxys at the bottom.

Given that alternate timelines are officially a thing in the ''Pokémon'' canon (RSE vs ORAS, Black vs White, etc.), what if the meteor in the ''Rescue Team'' games came from an alternate version of ''ORAS'', where Zinnia failed or wasn't around to prevent the scientists from following through?

[[WMG: The Weather Trio are a near-extinct race.]]
There actually used to be a bunch of them in the early Earth. Billions of years ago, the Earth used to be a WorldOfChaos, but slowly calmed down as the Kyogres, Groudons and Rayquazi slaughtered one another. The ones you encounter are almost the LastOfTheirKind, with this extinction correlating to Earth's environment becoming stabler and more open to life.

** In the backstory for ''Hoopa and the Clash of the Ages,'' it's revealed that Hoopa would summon increasingly powerful Pokémon and beat the crap out of them as a form of entertainment. When it started summoning dangerous legendaries, its unbound forme was locked away in the prison bottle. So while not directly confirmed, it's still pretty strongly implied.

* While this a good theory, Falkner, Bugsy, Gardenia, Fantina, Volkner, Cilan, Chili, Cress, and Wulfric don't really sound like legitimate people names either. His name, like all these other ones, is a pun on something related to their Specified type.
