Player Characters and Friends/Rivals
Barry and Bianca are siblings.
Fennel is Cheren's mother.
Fennel is related to the player character's mother from D/P/PTThey have the similar hair, and yeah...
Cheren is somehow related to Thorton, the battle frontier brain of the battle factory in Platinum.
Bianca and Cheren are Barry and Dawn's childrenIt's never stated when this takes place, so it could be a considerable amount of time between this game and DPPT. They look a lot like them, as well.
Red will not appear this genBut Leaf will. Red has appeared in every gen, but Leaf has only appeared in a non-canon role for FRLG. With all the throwbacks to Kanto and Johto, why not include the original Kanto girl? It's the perfect time to introduce her. If she isn't in BW, expect her in the potential Hoenn remakes, since Hoenn and Kanto took place at around the same time. Maybe she could have been the person who saved Sevii instead of Red, and thus she is referenced. Or maybe she appears in Hoenn, since she's not in Kanto or Johto.
You, Cheren, and Bianca are sixteenWell, it's unknown what their ages are right now. Red is the only protagonist with a confirmed age, which is eleven. He's fourteen as of HGSS. Thirteen to fifteen isn't exactly a large age difference from the other protagonists. You also do resemble someone of that age group.
Bianca and Barry are cousins through their father's side.Palmer and Bianca's father are brothers, and it was the former's hyperactivity and over-the-top enthusiasm for Pokémon that put Bianca's father off them, probably not helped by hearing about some of Palmer's close calls, which convinced him they were too dangerous for Bianca to go out and train. Alternatively, Palmer told his brother about what Barry's childhood friend was up to on Mount Coronet, which sent him into a panic over his daughter's safety.
The main character is a robot created by Prof. Juniper.The main character is a robot created by Professor Juniper in an experiment to create the ultimate Pokémon master. Hence the ‘Tell me your name’ and ‘Let me introduce you to your best friends!’ Cheren and Bianca are, in fact, paid actors taking part in the experiment, used to watch the main character on his/her journey.
The main character's mother is a robot.
Bianca's father is abusive.
Hilbert/Touya's design represents Autumn and Winter while Hilda/Touko's design represents Spring and Summer.I couldn't help but notice how the way they dressed made them seem kind of ill-prepared for weather changes. I mean, it's a little less jarring with Touya, but can you imagine walking in snow/hail wearing shortshorts? So yeah, it just makes me think that Touya is dressed for the Autumn and Winter seasons and Touko is dressed for Spring and Summer.
Hilbert and Hilda are fraternal twins.I couldn't help but realize that they look entirely alike with the exception of gender and eye color, but genetics and not being identical can handwave the minor difference. Skin tone is the same, hair color is the same, they are both sixteen, and they even have similar hats, names, and height. Separated at birth maybe?
Bianca's childish and ditzy nature is a front.Think about it: we know that her father is at the very least overprotective, if not actually abusive. Perhaps Bianca's fallen into the habit of acting like a childish idiot as a coping mechanism, or else to stave off harsher punishments than fighting back (you would act more infantile than you were too, if your father was abusing you and it would make him leave you alone). Either that or she's come to believe that she really is childish and in need of protection, because that's the way her father treats her, whether she is or not.
The player character's father has a job that requires him to go overseas.Maybe he's in the armed forces, or a pilot, or something.
The player character's father is Lt. Surge.Early-Installment Weirdness on him being called the Lightning American. He's really the Lightning Unovan.
The player character and N are descended from the two brothers, respectively.It would be fitting.
Hilbert is descended from Hilda.There is a theory going on that Pokémon Black is a futuristic version of Pokémon White. If this is the case, assuming you go with Hilbert being Black and Hilda being White, then Hilda was alive long before Hilbert was even born. And Hilbert and Hilda sure do look alike....
Hilbert and Hilda are the same person, and are Gender Swaps of each otherThey look very alike, have incredibly similar sounding names in either language, have the same mother, have the same best friends, go on the same adventure with all the same people. They aren't separate characters at all, but the same person in two different genders. This is why you never see the other character during the game.
The PC's mother is a protagonist from one of the other gamesThe game mentions that the mother used to be a trainer, and she "just happened" to have a pair of running shoes lying around. It's highly likely that she's one of the previous generation's protagonist, and is passing her trainer knowledge along to her child.
The "King" mentioned in the Abyssal Ruins is the Black/White 1 player character.Archaeologists have simply mistaken it for a burial site of an ancient king due to the texts it contains. However, the ruins contains no tomb but a lot of treasures, practically the opposite of what you'd expect a burial site to have. Abyssal Ruins has always been underwater, which is why the treasures are still there—to keep grave robbers out until the player character arrives. If it's not a burial site, then what is it? This was a test of wisdom for the player character, and the texts written there is actually a prophecy. The text is in the language of the player character, a language the ancients would've been unlikely to use (only written in code, right to left, bottom to top), and within it are directions on how to get to the end. That is, you are not following instructions meant for some ancient king. The Abyssal Ruins are rightfully the player character's, and the directions are meant for him/her. As for the rest of the text, the first three floors are a set of standards for the Hero of Unova—the 2nd and 3rd floors read much like a contract. That is, they contain a series of statements, then "X if agreed." By doing X, the player character vows to the ancients who built the ruins to fulfill those standards, and the ancients allow the player character to keep going forward. The 4th and final floor's text is much more cryptic, but it all comes together when you realize two of the statements are switched. It reads: King defeated ③ alone. ④ joined King in a day. King called ⑤ beings. King is hope and future. The great King ⑥. ③ and ④ are switched between the Black and Black 2 versions and the White and White 2 versions. Thus, ③ must be the ancients' name for Zekrom, and ④ for Reshiram, and this text referring to the climactic fight against N, where N uses Zekrom or Reshiram, and the player character temporarily gets help from the other one. ⑤ would then refer to Pokémon as a whole, calling upon them to defeat Zekrom/Reshiram and then Ghetsis, and by doing so, bring hope to the Unova region and ensuring it has a future. ⑥ is the name of the player character. To bring this idea home, the item you obtain on the 4th floor is the Relic Crown. In other words, the crown is yours, and you are now the King. You have proven wise enough for the task on the 1st floor, accepted your duties as King on the 2nd and 3rd floors, and in return, the ancients have accepted you as King and have given you the crown. (Regardless of if you picked the boy or the girl—it would've been too obvious if all references to the "King" were changed to "Queen" if you chose Hilda.) And the treasures are there because you've inherited it. I realize this feels incredibly obvious the more I look at it. I can't believe it took me so long to figure this out.
Hilda/Touko is the canon protagonist of Gen VJust like Red was the canon protagonist of Gen I, Hilda is, in turn, the canon protagonist of Gen V. I say this merely because Hilda was actually designed first, and Hilbert's design was created to match Hilda's as she was created before him. And it just makes for excellent shipping with N.
N traveled to Orre after the events of B/W.Here's my reasoning. After you capture the Seven Sages, Looker shows up and informs you that N has been seen in a distant land. Any Pokemon from Orre have Distant Land as a location, even after GEN IV, when Pokemon were given Hoenn and Kanto if they were from there. Since they specifically said Distant Land, N traveled to Orre. If a third Shadow Pokemon game is made, he could be the way to purify Shadow Pokemon, even ones that were sealed similar to XD001. Also, Ghetsis probably knows about Cipher, as what else would be best at showing N how evil humans are in trying to control and enslave Pokemon?
N will come back in future games/remakes.Let's be honest, he's one of the most popular characters since Cynthia, she has made several cameos and appearances (even fights!); and don't forget Red, he hasn't as many as Cynthia, but we are talking about Red, after all. I'm sure, since N became so popular, that we will be seeing him in one way or another, soon I hope.
In his next appearance, N will have Victini.He already has a precedent for using event-onlies, and they've both been locked in Gilded Cages, if for different reasons.
N's mother is Concordia.
N's parents were religious extremists.Since B/W, no other character has been able to truly communicate with Pokemon. Sure, they may control Pokemon in several ways, but never communicate with them. Imagine if your child could claim to speak to animals, and the animals obeyed. My theory is that perhaps N's parents thought that he was cursed by Archeus (or the Pokemon equivalent of Satan). It makes even more sense considering that in B2/W2, N states that he was "abandoned in the woods as a young child." The word "abandoned" alone clearly denotes that his parents were intent on leaving him. In addition, this theory works well if Ghetsis is actually N's father. In the infamous B/W quote, Ghetsis calls N "a warped child without a human heart." Thus, Ghetsis sees N as a non-human.
N is Hitler.For the lulz.
Athena was N's tutor.
N Links with his Pokemon, rather than capturing them.
N will become a Pokémon prof.It'll give him a chance to meet and speak with as many Pokémon as possible.
N was raised by Pokémon.He's Pokémon-Tarzan and that's why he doesn't want to see them hurt.
N's name stands for NintendoWhy the heck not?
N Didn't Run AwayConsumed by the guilt of what he was tricked into doing, N releases the mascot of the opposite game and jumps. The Player Character can't handle the shock and stress of seeing someone die, so s/he pretends that N just flew off on said mascot.
N is a villain from another anime series that broke through the fourth wall and somehow wandered into these games.That's just the feeling I'm getting.
N is not a "name," technically speaking.Instead, it's a designation. Ghetsis just disposed of kids A-M before he got to N, the one who could actually help fulfill his plans. Let's be honest, it wouldn't be out of character for him...
N is related to MeloettaMusic-related last name, green hair, and hints of psychic powers, at least those related to the ability to communicate with Pokémon, which would point at Meloetta's Song Forme as somehow related to N. Hell, let's look at N's backstory: abusive father pushing him to do something with his natural abilities solely for the father's benefit, with the abuse leading to him possibly losing his childhood and being stuck with a childlike mentality. This should sound familiar. And what was Jacko known for? Singing and dancing, Meloetta's specialties. The only problem in this case would be that Ghetsis would also have to be related to Meloetta, as he shares greenish hair and the musical last name.
N and Wally from RSE are related in some way.The two look fairly similar, to start. Since Ghetsis may not have been N's biological father (as hinted at by one sage), it's entirely possible that N and Wally are related. Here's what I'm thinking - Wally's parents accidentally had a kid at a point when they couldn't care for one and so had to give N up, resulting in Ghetsis adopting him. Or, considering all of the age gaps, it's possible that N and Wally are twins who were Separated at Birth, possibly due to Ghetsis breaking into the hospital and stealing one twin away.
All of N's Pokemon he allegedly abandoned are actually kept in a nature reserve.I thought this would help reflect his canon personality.
N is a Poke-sexual.He was raised by Pokemon and isolated from people. What do you think happened when he reached puberty?
N is 'M.Because hey, it's the only other character in the series with a One-Letter Name.
N isn't N's full first nameBut he doesn't know what is his full name is either, because the building where it was stored exploded. Yes, it was the same where G's name was stored.
N is an alias used because Pokemon believe in the power of names.I've long suspected that the Pokemon in the Mystery Dungeon games always go by their species names because there's a taboo on using someone's real name in public; you know your team members' names because they announce them to signal a trusting relationship. Being raised by Pokemon, N feels this way, too... and he would have gone as "Human" if Ghetsis hadn't pointed out how abjectly weird that would be from the human perspective. So, he meets the two cultures halfway and uses the first letter of whatever his real name is with strangers.
N will return as a Pokémon Professor, and so his real name will be revealed as......a type of tree that starts with the letter N.
N and Ghetsis represent White and Black, respectively.N: A pure heart. The sympathetic pawn. The loved one. Ghetsis: A dark soul. The heartless crafty monster. The hated one. They may share the same blood, but they are different as night and day. Hero Antagonist, incredibly kind natured and a Friend to All Living Things. Ghetsis is the supreme manipulator, and ultimate soldier to the forces of evil. Unknown to either side, they personify good and evil respectively. Due to a quirk of fate, The Balance Of Good And Evil, or Arceus had a strange sense of humor, the two are related. Evil begat Good. When Ghetsis leaves his mortal coil, he will become the Lord of Evil. Perhaps even challenge the other monsters of gaming for the same title Chernabog has for Disney.
N is an Ion replica.(Tales Of The Abyss spoiler there) Ion and all his replicas have green hair, are extremely childish in mind, and most importantly, 4 of the 7 are unaccounted for, supposedly dead. If one of them had accidentally ended up in the Pokemon world somehow, initially distrusted humans and lived with Pokemon, and was eventually manipulated into following Ghetsis... it would explain why N, despite being raised by Pokemon, isn't entirely clueless regarding social norms and can function around people, but is still incredibly childish. Of course, the question of how he would have gotten there is a big thorn in this theory's side, but interdimensional portals are always fun!
N is descended from the same Viridian group as Yellow.They're both gentle, naive, fairly androgynous characters who dislike fighting to capture Pokemon and who have powers to communicate with and heal Pokemon (N heals your Pokemon between your fight with the legendary dragon, your fight with him, and your fight with Ghestis). Yellow is explicitly established to be from a people in the Viridian Forest area who are noted to have such powers. Which gives another meaning and purpose to Ghetsis's brainwashing of N, and his Hydreigon as a control measure as noted above. Remember what happens when Yellow gets well and truly pissed off? Imagine a kid with two legendaries doing that.
N has psychic powers.When he starts rambling about his visions of the future, he's speaking literally, not figuratively. If we assume for the sake of argument that the main series games wind up leading to the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games, maybe he has the Dimensional Scream like the Explorers protagonist. Also perhaps adds another element to the "Ghetsis' haxdragon was meant to counter N and his Tao Dragon" theory, if Dark works on psychic humans as well as it does on Psychic Pokemon.
N will be Driven to Suicide or worse.Consider that, by the end of the game, it's been revealed that N has been abused and manipulated by Ghetsis from the day he was born. The extent of the abuse is never shown to us, only implied (N's toy room and his strange behaviour in general). There's also the implication that every single member of Team Plasma was basically playing him as a fool. While he was still ignorant of the truth, he must have built a huge trust around the team that's supposedly leading his cause. Now combine all of his attachments from his entire life falling down like a house of cards with the possibly years of psychological trauma from his childhood, and imagine what his state of mind would be like after all of that transpired. Hint: it is not pretty. Worse yet, he's implied to be on Looker's Top 10 Wanted List and running from the law, not only exacerbating his condition but cutting him off from any chance of professional help. And that's not even delving into the possibility of Stockholm Syndrome; N might just return to Ghetsis's service despite the years of abuse because of this, just like Ghetsis planned to. Or the fact that N is in possession of an ultra-powerful dragon and the other possibility of going Naru Taru on the world with it...
N can't talk to Pokémon.It's a product of his childlike imagination combined with his severe isolation. He's so desperate for companionship that he made himself believe he could communicate with Pokémon; in reality, it's more probable that it's a form of projection. Furthermore, there are over 600 Pokémon in existence, some of which may not be sapient or even comprehensible to human beings. Without extensive knowledge, field study, and experience with Pokémon's natural behaviours, how could he tell what a Pokémon he might have never seen was thinking? If this doesn't sound disturbing, it should now. Why? If this is true, he didn't even have Pokémon as his friends.
N is related to Shikieiki.I propose that N is Shikieiki's younger brother.
N is one in a long line of kidnapped children stolen by Ghetsis.Concordia and Anthea are Ghetsis' wives, or possibly his relatives — maybe sisters, maybe cousins. Ghetsis decided not to have children — or he may have ruled out the option due to the possibility of becoming attached to his own blood — so he sent out Team Plasma to take away young children. He eliminated each when they grew if they didn't seem to be what he wanted, and finally ended up with N. N could be related to him distantly, or maybe the hair is just a coincidence — or maybe N dyed it to match Ghetsis'.
N is a clone of GhetsisThis is playing off the "N is a designation, not a name" thing above. Ghetsis clearly had his plans thought out a while, yeah? Long enough for a kid to be all alone raised by abused Pokémon for years, at least. This could answer the question of what happened to A through M: all of them went down to Clone Degeneration. But the information from the Mewtwo Project in Kanto (which Ghetsis had to know about, or he couldn't have stolen the idea for Genesect) allowed Ghetsis to make a more perfect clone of himself, designated "N". This explains the Strong Family Resemblance between the two, and allows for N to be actually related to Ghetsis (screw Ryouku) without actually having Ghetsis get laid.
N will become a Pokémon RangerIt makes sense, doesn't it? And it would suit him.
N is a Zoroark.This is a theory that came up in a discussion on YouTube. Think about it - they have similar hair, N can talk to Pokémon, and he uses a Zoroark himself (a brother or relative, maybe?). N is the letter Z turned clockwise.
N is not a Zoroark, but he did grow his hair out for his Zorua.They've been with each other quite a long time, and it is a habit for Zorua to hide in their parents' manes. N grew his hair out just for his fox buddy.
N and the player are descendants of the founders of Unova.Why else would they reenact the fight?
N's mother died in childbirth.That would explain why we never see her anywhere, and why N has the name he does — she never got a chance to give him a proper name even if she wanted to.
N was conceived via prostitute.Here are the following reasons why Ghetsis would visit a hooker to get N.
The Creation Orbs weren't a part of Ghetsis's plan but N's!Think about it, he spent the entire game saying he wasn't going to just separate people and Pokemon but "create a new world for them!" He meant it literally, he intended to first separate people and Pokemon in our world before using the creation trio to make a new world for Pokemon alone. Able to see how this could benefit him or just humoring N to make him continue to be his Unwitting Pawn, Ghetsis kept the orbs until N wanted to use them. When N was defeated and ran off, Ghetsis no longer had any use for the orbs and gave them to the player for some reason. Or the Shadow Triad did it on their own when Ghetsis told them to dispose of the orbs, they just said it was his orders to save face.
N is Schizophrenic in Some Shape or FormLooking at it from a purely psychological point of view, it makes sense. He meets all of the requirements to have at the very least Undifferentiated Schizophrenia.
N is a child of an Alakazam.This is based off of a few things Masuda has said about N on his Twitter feed. Specifically, the fact that it is rumored that N was born from Pokemon, parents unknown. Another fact that was released was that he has mental capabilities exceeding that of normal humans. Alakazam have an average IQ of 5000.
Alternately, N was created by Unown.Because N's birth parents are unknown... unless they actually are Unown.
N is part Gardevoir.There's the association with green, and N has green hair. Gardevoir are Psychic types who are known for being able to see the future, and N can apparently see the past AND future. And, quite frankly, it's not outside of the realms of possibility that someone - ah - abused a Gardevoir in such a fashion.
N is doing a Nuzlocke ChallengeThis explains why he has a different team literally every time you battle him. According to the rules, his Pokemon "die" after you defeat them in battle, and he has to abide by the challenge and let them go.
N somehow came into contact with Celebi's Time RippleN speaks of seeing the future, and the villain in Zoroark Master Of Illusions can see the future because he touched Celebi's Time Ripple. There's even an event based around Celebi and Zoroark in that game that was inspired by the movie. And while N himself isn't enough of an evil jerk to hunt down Celebi for that purpose, we can't put anything past Ghetsis....
N's mother is a relative of Ghetsis.It's not what you're thinking. N's mother may have been a sister/cousin that was either too young to care for N or she died during childbirth so Ghetsis was the one to take N in. N's real father may have abandoned his mother before N's birth or he's dead. Alternatively...
N's mother didn't want N.She was in a relationship with Ghetsis but after N's birth, she figured out that Ghetsis was a complete monster and left him. The only reason she left N with Ghetsis was because she didn't want to be reminded of him.
N's "mother" was a Zoroark.No, not like that. N was raised by Pokemon, so he would've had a Pokemon as his foster mother. Zoroark is a likely guess considering N's similar apperance to Zoroark, and preference in using them. Since Zoroark is an illusionist, its ability may have helped N relate to Pokemon more/understand Pokemon body language. The Zoroark you see in his final battle is likely this Zoroark's son/N's "brother", which explains why he saves it for his final battle, and is still seen in the sequel.
N's hair is not naturally green, but was dyed to keep up the ruse of his being Ghetsis' biological son to Team Plasma's underlings.
Ghetsis was the one who abandoned him.

Clyde is Team Plasma's spy.First off - Clyde is the guy giving you Fresh Water and advice in the Gyms. I bow down to you if you didn't have to check the spoiler box. Anyway, he's either your father or the Team Plasma's spy sent to observe you growing stronger and report your team's status to Ghetsis or N so they are prepared to battle you.
There will be an abnormal amount of -yay with everyone in this gameProfessors, admins, N, Bianca, Cheren, gym leaders, psuedo rival... With all of them.
Surge is from Unova.Both are Type 1 Eagleland, so why not? It's not like we'll see America in the games, so they could retcon him to being from this new region.
Veteran Shaun is a retired ChampionAt one point, Ghetsis mocks Alder, claiming that he only became Champion because he was asked to fill a vacancy. In Challengers Cave, at the very bottom, you meet Veteran Shaun, the most powerful standard trainer in the game. You wouldn't expect him to be as strong as he is, and he doesn't make much of a fuss about it. Perhaps Shaun was the former champion of Unova, then absconded to train in isolation, among other powerful trainers. It would certainly explain his Boss in Mook Clothing nature.
Fennel is a very human-like Pokemon or half-Pokemon.The coloration on those arms is not normal, even if you try to claim the orange is just shadowing. (But maybe I'm just hoping for the canonization of an idea I had prior to the fifth gen's reveal, which would be very similar to the hypothetical reveal of Fennel being a Pokemon.)
Skyla is from New Jersey.I Always Wanted to Say That.
Amanita didn't make the PC storage system for Unova.She stole it from Bill. The way I see it, Bill and Lanette worked together to develop the storage system, with Bill doing most of the base work (basically what we got in Red and Blue)and Lanette renovating it to make it user friendly (what we see in Ruby and Sapphire). The storage systems we see afterwards are people who contacted Bill (or knew him anyway) and updated it. Amanita didn't do that. She felt that she needed to do something significant to outshine her sister, so she took the storage system, filed of the serial numbers, changed a couple things, and claimed that she made this version. But to get it working she had to disable a number of safety protocols that Bill and Lanette put in place. That was how Team Plasma was able to hack in. With control of the system, they would be able to stop people from accessing their Pokemon. Bet Amanita didn't think of that when she took it.
A picture of Lt. Surge saying he is visiting his homeland will pop up and people will still whine if it is NY or not.
Cilan and N are siblingsN wants to segregate Pokemon and humans while Cilan can feel your bonds. They also look similar too.
Professor Juniper is Makoto Kino from Sailor Moon.LOOK at her. Brown hair in a ponytail, pink earrings, green skirt, green eyes, a name that sounds like Jupiter....
Cynthia's home region is UnovaIn Platinum, she claims that even the region her home is in is a secret. And since she appears in these games, maybe Unova is where she lives.
Caitlin was unable to battle in Gen IV because her psychic powers were making her ill.She was unable to control her powers and they made her too frail and weak to battle. Black and White are set a few years later, and she has learned to control her powers to some extent and is now capable of battling, but she is still sick so she spends most of her time asleep in the bed in her chamber.
Ghetsis is descended from one of the two brothers who founded the Unova settlementsThe conflict between the brothers caused the single dragon Pokémon who worked alongside them to split into Reshiram and Zekrom to reflect their psyches. That is, one followed the fervent brightness of yang, the other the cautious shadow of yin. Considering that in the opening trailer, Ghetsis is literally part dark and part light, it could possibly be a mark of coming from part of that divided bloodline, even that his parents came from each brother's bloodline, the yin follower and the yang follower. We even get a motive for his desire to rule Unova — he wants to undo the brothers' "mistake" and invoke the glorious rule they could have had if they hadn't squabbled!
To go by the above, Ghetsis is descended from the brother that fought for truth.It would fit the theme, considering he's a Straw Hypocrite. And if N really isn't Ghetsis' biological child, he would be descended from the brother that fought for ideals.
Ghetsis is N's biological fatherAnd he isn't a very nice one at all.
Ghetsis isn't N's biological father, but his uncle.Word of God has noted that N's biological parents are unknown. Given that Ghetsis still looks a lot like N, he's probably still related to some extent. It's possible that Ghetsis specifically targeted his biological nephew because his family is directly related to at least one of the founding brothers of Unova. As for how, manipulating his brother/sister could have taken place. Though, knowing Ghetsis, something more sinister happened.
Ghetsis is N from the future.Following on from my "the two universes were one universe that was split by the events of Platinum" WMG, one of the effects of Cyrus violating the space-time continuum was Ghetsis, several decades in the future, being shunted back in time to the time and place of his early childhood. In his own time Ghetsis had already founded Team Plasma, though his plot to conquer Unova had already failed, partially because Reshiram/Zekrom didn't recognize him as a hero. When he encountered his past self, and seeing this as a chance to Set Wrong What Once Went R Ight abducted his past self and raised him as his son, hoping this time around N/young Ghetsis would be able to summon the dragon.
Ghetsis is N's Shadow Archetype.Ghetsis was actually much like N in his childhood-they were both isolated, socially awkward yet genius prodigies with a keen sense of themselves. However their different upbringings resulted in them gradually diverging into what they are today-unlike N who was gradually proven wrong and decided to rethink what he was doing, Ghetsis refused to listen to others, leading to an inflated ego, followed by narcissism and the callousness that it would bring. The reason Ghetsis seems to hate N isn't simply because his plans were bundled, but because N reminds him of his "weaker, stupid" younger self.
Alder was a bug-catcher as a childTake one look at his team; half of them are bug Pokémon. He probably caught them as a child and used them all the way until he beat the elite four. (The fact that half of them are weak to bug types probably helped a lot.) Also, any idea on how old he is? He looks like he's the oldest champion yet.
Elesa is anorexic.Her overworld sprite is too skinny to be normal, I'd say.
Alder is related to DakimSeriously, they both have a necklace of Pokéballs... and take one look at Dakim, then at Alder.
Elesa is Volkner's sisterCoincidentally, Lt. Surge is their dad and Wattson is their grandfather.
Cilan, Chili, and Cress are the Dark TrinityNotice how Cilan, Chili, and Cress were mysteriously absent during the events at N's Castle.
The Dark Trinity are Cilan's, Chili's, and Cress's long lost sisters
If anything, Cilan, Chili, and Cress were originally a Power Trio.Uh, they are a Power Trio. Ego, Id, and Superego respectively.
Cilan, Chili, and Cress are possibly related to Meloetta.Take a look at them, and then take a look at Meloetta. Cilan represents the Voice; not only is he green, but he seems to be a rather calming influence on the Red Oni, Blue Oni relationship between Chili and Cilan. A voice can be a calming influence, or one of stern-ness. Chili represents the Step; both red, and one who acts on impulse. Someone with mass amounts of energy that really shows. Upbeat, and powerful. Cress will represent the instrument; the form probably to come with the third game. Blue, much like himself. One that represents the confidence; perhaps even a bit smug and very self assured. Like the confidence to go up on stage. And with all of them together? You get the best musical performance this side of Metallica. Nuff said.
Team Plasma were following Ghetsis all along.As noted in Alternative Character Interpretation, it's very possible that Team Plasma (or at least their higher-ups) were putting up a façade of support for N while Ghetsis worked his real plan behind the scenes. The Sages at times seemingly slip up and call Ghetsis their leader, and then there's the fact that the Dark Trinity remained loyal to him even after his Moral Event Horizon. Plus, it's not all that hard to fool an incredibly naive Man Child like N, whom even many Plasma Grunts would in private look down upon like they would a small boy (and many may have thought his plans were an unrealistic pipe dream even if they didn't). The whole thing about him being king might have been a not very difficult mass stage act.
Also, note that all of the Plasma Grunts use their own Pokemon to battle you, like any other trainer. N seems to be the only one that acts out on his beliefs. Actually, pretty much everything to do with Team Plasma is a giant hypocrisy steamroller. If N had any semblance of real, non-ceremonial power, surely he would have stopped them from, among other things, abusing the stolen Pokemon that they had supposedly "liberated"? Combined with what Ghetsis's real goals turn out to be, you'd be forgiven for saying the whole affair stinks of Straw Hypocrisy...
Ghetsis is the Player Character's Father.Related to the "N is not a name" WMG above, Ghetsis had a kid with your mother and she ended up finding out about his plan and escaped. She never told you this because, well how would you feel if your father left you with abused Pokémon all your life, summoned a legendary dragon to separate the world, and finally killed you?
Concordia and Anthea are Ghetsis's wives.
Caitlin's power is the equivalent to Hinamizawa Syndrome.
The "Youngster Joey" in these games is the same person as the one from Gold and Silver.He has the same name as his Generation II/IV counterpart in both English and Japanese. Presumably his larger team is an attempt to compensate for not being able to find a Patrat that is in the top percentage of all Patrat.
"Youngster Joey" is GSCHGSS Joey's Nephew
"Youngster Joey" moved from Johto.
In Gray/Grey/Translucent, Joey will have a Rattata and be the sole trainer to have a gen 1-4 Pokémon before the national dex
Lt. Surge, Koga, and Sabrina are the Shadow Triad.Hey, they wanted to do a reference to Gen 1, didn't they? It'll be a nice slap in the face in the future game; just when Hilbert/Hilda conquers all of the Gyms in Kanto after beating the main storyline (possibly accessible by airplane), who else turns up on a nice peaceful cruise than two Gym Leaders led by an Elite? Oh, and their Pokemon will be all levels 80-95 to add insult to injury. If you lose to them, they take you to Ghetsis who announces that he will take you permanently out of the picture... only for another Big Damn Heroes by the Kanto Gym Leaders and N. This is where Ghetsis is finally captured, and possibly even given a nice Hannibal Lecture by N himself. Surge, Koga, and Sabrina manage to escape, however. If you win, however... the Triad gives you the Azure Flute, stating that in losing, their plan cannot come into fruition. Makes sense when you consider the Triad gives you the Adamant, Lustrous, and Griseous orbs; Ghetsis was willing to take on Arceus himself in order to not only enslave Unova, but to enslave the entire world.
Ghetsis was planing to off N when he was done with him.Note his hacked Dragon is a great counter to your legendary (and your everything else), and he clearly hasn't planned for you, so why else would he have it?
Team Plasma is a metaphor for the Nazi Party.Team Plasma wanted to separate people from Pokémon. The Nazi Party wanted to separate Aryans from non-Aryans. And the only person who wouldn't have to be separated would be Ghetsis/Hitler.
Ghetsis' eyepiece is an Insomniscope to protect him from Darkrai's powers.Because he and Darkrai are working together towards the paralysis of the planet. Darkrai's cool with letting Ghetsis rule for a little while — a human lifespan isn't all that long compared to a Legendary Pokemon's, and it's more his style to manipulate from the sidelines anyway. That or they're plotting to backstab each other. This is also why Ghetsis had the Creation Trio's orbs. You're welcome.
Brycen 'Ice Mask' was Mask of Ice.It was implied that Mask of Ice was a gym trainer at the very least, Brycen spent time abroad being mysterious, and isn't he awfully standoffish compared to the region's other gym leaders? Furthermore, what's with that potential deathtrap gym of his? Kinda villainous...
Ghetsis is planning to reform Team Plasma and try to rule Unova again, with N's help.He's got the Shadow Triad. He's planning to recruit more members of Team Plasma and pick up any who are still willing to help him. He plans to maybe pull a jailbreak to get the Seven Sages back, and he thinks that N will eventually come back to him out of sheer desperation. He might try to brainwash the player into helping — if N and the player, the two heroes, unite, then maybe they could rule the world — and he might try to get Kyurem for himself. That'd actually make a good plot for a third game...
Cynthia is Not What She SeemsNotice Catilyn has grown quite a lot since Platinum. Cynthia, however, looks like she hasn't aged a day. Also, Shauntal says she doen't know how old Cynthia is. Also, Cynthia somehow has all the best new Pokemon. (Garchomp, Braviary, Eelektross) She has also appeared in every main game since her introduction. As for what she is...
Ghetsis is designed for Fridge Horror.Pokémon Mystery Dungeon proves that Nintendo's willing to put Nightmare Fuel in their game, and hide it enough to be rated E. So they decided to make a villain that is not only the biggest monster of Pokémon, but the most horrifying. And they succeeded.
Ghetsis will appear in another game...But not as the Big Bad or even a major villain. He will just be a Bonus Boss encountered as a raving lunatic in the back of a secluded cave somewhere, his sanity having continued to go south after his Villainous Breakdown at his defeat. He'll be reciting a Madness Mantra, trying to figure out the fatal flaw in his plan, but his own belief that Pokemon are just tools preventing him from seeing the truth. In his insanity, he'll mistake the player for the one who defeated him and challenge them to a Pokemon battle for revenge. After being defeated, Looker will show up, having finally tracked Ghetsis down (or perhaps having recruited the player to locate him), and comment on how far Ghetsis has fallen and arrest him at last. Just seemed a way to make him even more dark than he already was and something that might happen given his Sanity Slippage in the final battle.
Ghetsis did nothing more or less than neglect N emotionally.Never laid a finger on him. Perhaps literally. Psychological abuse, after all, can be a lot harder to spot from the outside or acknowledge for the victim than clear physical abuse. That and it wouldn't have worked if N had put two and four together and caused a scene at the coronation because he's actively aware Dad sucks. No, just leave him wanting that little bit more approval, and he'll be right where Ghetsis wants him to be...
Ghetsis is an alien, or, if he's human, he comes from a completely different 'Verse.That would explain his weird clothes, as well as (to a lesser extent) his evilness- if on his homeworld the behavior he exhibits is normal.
Alder's Dead Partner is Genesect.It was resurrected by Team Plasma, only to escape a la Mewtwo. He befriended it, but it was eventually killed by Ghetsis. it's a bug type, too, like his specialty.
Looker will be the villain of the third game.He tells us he's a member of the International Police, but what other agents of that organization have we ever seen? It's all a construct. He wasn't really arresting the Galactic Commanders or Seven Sages; all we ever see is him leading them away, without the assistance of any other officers even though these people are known to be highly dangerous. It also explains why the Sages go with him so easily; He's in league with Ghetsis. (He had to get those three legendary orbs from somewhere, and Cynthia/Caitlin aren't nearly as suspicious.) He's going to try to combine the Villainous teams's motives to separate people and Pokemon by creating an alternate new universe and placing all the Pokemon there.
It was Anthea and Concordia who were conceived via prostitute.Here's why.
Anthea and Concordia are sister and mother, respectively.To N. Concordia is Ghetsis's wife, and Anthea is Ghetsis' daughter. A queen and a princess to complete the set. This is why she cared so much about N, and knew how she was raised. Anthea was concieved for the purpose of taking care of N when needed, and convincing him that what he does is right. The reason why Concordia has never called the cops? Ghetsis has psychologically tortured her into being his puppet. Whenever her relatives call her, she is forced to lie and say that she's fine. Or it's battered wife syndrome. Let's face it, Ghetsis would have no problem with it.
Grimsley's mother was powerful and his father was not.This is why he favors female Pokemon for his teams. Almost all of his lineage and his training with Dark Pokemon came from his mother — his father was either fairly ineffectual or never around. So he thinks women are stronger than men, and it reflects in his choice of battle Pokemon.
The Plasma Grunts (and possibly everyone else on Team Plasma) are Ghetsis's slaves.So it doesn't matter how much they knew about Ghetsis's original plans — they have to obey him anyway. It would fit his personality perfectly to bind them to him by force.
Ghetsis is a rich bastard.It would explain why he's Ghetsis...
Amanita has a Foongus or AmoongussEvery version of her name has something to do with mushrooms — the English version is a reference to the "Destroying Angels" — and Foongus/Amoonguss just so happened to be introduced in the region that she's from. The genus Amanita is full of poisonous mushrooms (hence the nickname "Destroying Angel") and both 'mons are of the grass/poison type(s) with the ability Effect Spore. It holds no bearing on the plot, but it would be a cool extra.
Ghetsis indulged in Mind Rape.To N. He needed to screw up N to the point he'd be a perfect Unwitting Pawn, and be stuck in a child-like mentality. He didn't do actual rape, because it wouldn't give the effect needed. These would usually be done by giving N a Hope Spot, then crushing it when it's at its most potent. Plus, he admits to enjoying the crushing of one's hopes and dreams. So not only would this make N perfectly subservient, but he'd enjoy it. Thus making it all the more of a Mind Rape. Ghetsis is sick enough to do this.
Ghetsis is a shoutout to CATS from Zero Wing.Villain with a red eye, a technological eyepiece that conceals the other one, long green hair, and giant robes. N has no chance to survive make his time. Ha ha ha ha!!
Alder is either of Mexican descent or really really tan.Alder's skin is a tad too pale to be caucasian; but not dark enough to be black like Lenora or Marshal, or Ambiguously Brown like Iris. He also had red hair. Either he's really really tan because he's walked the country and spends a lot of time in the sun, or is of Mexican descent.
Ghetsis is connected to Cyrus.If he isn't Cyrus's father, then someone just like Ghetsis (possibly a brother) raised Cyrus. After all, who else could turn Cyrus into Cyrus?
The boy Aurora mentions in her Japanese conversation is merely when she realized she was a lesbianWhy mess with perfectly good yuri?
The Subway Bosses caught some of their Pokémon during work.They caught the Garbodor from Trubbish formed by litter left in the subway or trash in trash cans. The Excadrill's Pokedex entry states that their tunnel-like nest can harm subway tunnels outright, and durants are known to tunnel as well. The Galvantula's pre-evolution, Joltik, can suck electricity out of power outlets, so Emmet (or Ingo) may have encountered one in an infested station. Alternatively, some subway systems use an electric third rail to power trains, so if a Joltik can drain power outlets, I doubt it's much of a stretch to think one or its evolution could feed off a third rail. This mass guess may enter nightmare fuel territory with Chandelure though, since its pre-evolution, Lampent, are said to appear near a body close to death to steal the spirit, and it's doubtful that the subway's accident-free.
Alder is Ash/Red from Pokemon Red and Blue.And the first Pokemon he ever had who he mentions died, was in fact Pikachu.
Ghestis is the decendant of the legendary hero's siblingHowever, his ancestor has no title and was hardly mentioned; only his two other siblings: The truth-finder and ideal-seeker. The ancestor could suffer from Middle Child Syndrome and being ignored in favour of his brother. So to vent out his fustration, he abused his own children, who then abuse their own children, and the cycle of abuse goes on. Ultimately, Ghestis was trapped in the cycle of abuse, and so would have N had the player not interfered.
Charon has worked for Team PlasmaWe know he has no loyalty to anyone but himself, and seems to screw over anyone he wants for his own amusement. What, then, could be more amusing than turning over the orbs of the two gods his last boss tried to summon, as well as the orb of the god that kidnapped said boss? And since we know Ghetsis is in the habit of trying to win over people in desperate times by making them owe him big time, it could easily be considered that Plasma was Charon's ticket out of prison. Of course, like any other person he's ever worked for, Charon would consider Ghetsis beneath him and only destined for failure, but he'd continue to kiss ass when needed to stay on the payroll until that time.
Ghetsis' treatment of his Pokemon is a result of being injured.Note that this isn't a Freudian Excuse for Ghetsis' appalling goals and behaviour-he likely had plans for vicious manipulation and conquest long before his current team. Rather, it's an explanation for why he's such a dick. Originally, Ghetsis didn't see Pokemon as tools-well, any less of a tool than every living thing. He may have even had a bond with them, seeing them as companions. That all changed when he got attacked by a Pokemon-whether he started it or not really doesn't matter, since the end result was the same-Ghetsis came to hate Pokemon for injuring him. The later Sanity Slippage and injuries was partly a result of bullying a literal dragon out rage.
Third Game A-M PredictionsAt the moment, only B and C, but it still counts. Feel free to add.
Identities of A-MI came up with some of my own ideas. For those of you with some of your own, you can put a sub-bullet under each letter (sign your guesses).
Ghetsis is a representative of Kyurem.Think about it: Ghetsis manipulates both N and the player, with the former being an idealist(Zekrom) and the player trying to reveal the truth(Reshiram). Similar to how Kyurem was revealed to have a Zekrom and Reshiram form. Like how Zekrom represents wuji, the absence of yin and yang. Deep down, Ghetsis has revealed that he's not concerned about either side, simply out for himself. Both have shown themselves to be evil—Kyurem has legendarily devoured people and Pokémon, and Ghetsis...well, he's pretty evil for reasons that scare us.
Alder's dead partner was a Sewaddle.It's one of the first Bug type Pokemon available in Unova. Given that the Bug/Grass typing gives it a LOT of weaknesses, it could be quite easy for a younger, more rash and impatient Alder to lose his Sewaddle.
Ghetsis is an Evil Cripple.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 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 trying to hide 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.
Ghetsis is Manfred von Karma.They both twisted a child's ideals to accomplish a goal, with the intention of spitting them out in the end. And who could forget "I AM PERFECTION!"?
Team Plasma is either affiliated with Cipher, or Ghetsis somehow aquired Shadow PokemonA quote by N, in the sequels: "The things (Ghetsis) gave me were...the name "Harmonia"...the knowledge a king would need...Pokémon with their hearts shut so very tightly I couldn't even talk to them...and this room... I'll be outside...".Shadow Pokemon explicitly are said to have thier "hearts artificially shut".
Meloetta is an Vocaloid Expy.Im angry that nobody else see that, the headset, sing based moves and dex entry, green hair, basicaly is Hatsune in disguise
Zoroark is a corrupted LucarioWhen Reshiram and Zekrom split, it created an aura of incredible power; this aura was so strong that it jumbled the DNA of all Lucario in the area, thus, we have Zoroark. To back it up, they're both bipedal foxes, they both evolve from an adorable pre-evolution, they both have claw based moves despite Lucario not having claws (they have spikes), and both use some kind of superpower to fight, (illusions for Zoroark and auras for Lucario), and if that's not enough, they are both used by a major NPC (N has a Zoroark, Riley has a Lucario).
There's a good way and a bad way for Zweilous to evolveThe good way is to get the two heads to work together and like each other, leading to a split personality merge. This takes a while to do, and is why you can't evolve Zweilous to Hydreigon until level 64. Because you're a good trainer. The bad way? Uh... One head loses. Violently. This is faster, but the brutality of the act can and will drive the Pokemon insane and you would have to be insane to do it. So guess who forces his Zweilous to evolve the bad way?
The many Pokemon expys are because of evolutionNot the well known method of leveling up evolution, but Darwin evolution. Some are still similar to their "Japanese" equivalent (Like Pidove and Pidgey, or Woobat and Zubat), but since they evolved under different pressures, they became a different Pokemon entirely.
Someone at TPCi REALLY loves Metal Gear Solid.Revolver Oshawott, Solid Snivy, and Tepig Boss fit way too closely to be coincidence.
Victini is Missingno in A Form You Are Comfortable With.Pokémon No. 000 (Unova dex only, 494 in national dex.) Come on, someone had to say it.
Victini represents Nuclear Power.Victini is a Fire type with the ability Victory Star, it also generates limitless energy/radiation that it releases on People and Pokémon that touch it. And let us not forget that the sun and by extension stars all run on Nuclear power (by Fusion rather then Fission).
Victini is the Princess from Braid.Well, they both are metaphors for the atomic bomb...
Victini is the Disc One Final Boss version of Missingno.Which means all those Missingno jokes actually had a meaning.
Cottonee and Petilil are harvested by humans.Cottonee is based on cotton (and supposedly has a sheep-like evolution) and is exclusive to the technology-based version. Petilil is based on a bulb and is exclusive to the nature-based version. My guess is that Cottonee are used in the textile industry, and Petilil in the farming industry.
Genesect will be this generation's equivalent to Mewtwo.A lot of first-gen Pokemon have some pretty obvious tributes/nods toward them in the Unova dex, as do a few second-gen guys. Genesect's covered in armor, much like Mewtwo's depiction with it in the anime and Special, it has a cannon, and its ability is Download — previously only used by the manmade Porygon line. Wouldn't it be cool if an attempt to make the ultimate Bug-type was one Gone Horribly Wrong... or perhaps Gone Horribly Right?
Genesect was created as a counter to Mewtwo.Think about it; 1/2 damage resistance to Psychic attacks, with a type advantage from Bug attacks against Psychic-type Pokémon. Base stats be damned if Genesect gets STAB and puts off super-effective moves against Mewtwo every turn, while soaking up the psychic damage...
Game Freak knows what everyone's been saying about Venomoth and Butterfree.If you don't know what I'm talking about, check the main Pokemon WMG page. Anyway, back in Gen I, we had two lines of Bug-types who were far away from each other in terms of Dex Number; the final evolution of the line that came earlier in the Dex seemed extremely similar to the basic stage of the one that came later. Now, in Gen V, a generation full of Expies, we have two lines of Bug-types who are far away from each other in terms of Dex Number (the Karrablast and Shelmet lines); the final evolution of the one that comes earlier in the Dex seems extremely similar to the basic stage of the one that comes later. As we all know, because of the evolution method for Karrablast and Shelmet, we know that it was intentional this time around. Maybe Game Freak knows the theory about Venomoth and Butterfree, and is acknowledging it through yet more expies?
The new Alien Pokémon aren't from RoswellRather, they're from another town in the US whose Pokémon World equivalent would be closer to Unova — Pine Bush.
Reshiram, Zekrom and Kyurem are the embodiments of Kinetic energy, Electromagnetic energy, and Potential energy, respectively.Reshiram controls fire (a product of kinetic energy), Zekrom controls Electricity (A product of EM energy, and Kyurem controls Ice, the coolest state of most fluids. In addition, Kyurem is possibly the "parent" of Reshiram and Zekrom.
Gothitelle are in some way related to Shinigami.To quote Gothitelle's Pokédex entry in White, "It can see the lifespan of trainers".
Volcarona was going to have a cocoon middle stage, but it was removed for some reason.Despite being a moth, Volcarona oddly skips over the iconic pupa stage for no apparent reason. In addition to this, Volcarona's EV yield is 3, which only third stage and legendary Pokemon have (not even Gyarados or Milotic have an EV yield of three), and it sets the record for the highest level it takes for a Pokemon to evolve from its base stage to the second.
Reshiram is the Musketeer trio's master, and Zekrom is the Kami trio's master — to be revealed in a future game or anime episode/movie.Although Cobalion and Landorus are currently recognized as the respective masters for each trio, it could turn out that each of the two version legendaries is a master of each trio, a la Ho-oh and Lugia. While the musketeers and their theme of "righteousness" could fit with Reshiram's design aesthetic, the cloud genies fit with Zekrom's theme of hiding in thunderclouds and causing storms.
Basculin is based on American politics.Specifically, it's based on the Strawman Political created by each of the two major parties. The red (Republican) Basculin seem more angry, wild, and unintelligent, just as the left often depicts the right. Meanwhile, the blue (Democrat) Basculin seem more arrogant and aloof, just as the right often depicts the left. Considering that they are always at each others' throats, this could be a Take That.
The above troper isn't going high enough. The Legendary Dragon Pokemon of this region (Reshiram, Zekrom, and Kyurem) are based on American Politics.In the backstory of Unova — brothers (the Founding Fathers) founded a united country with the help of a Pokemon (the continent of North America). However, they differed because one brother believed that only Truth (as in Religious Truth or perhaps practicality and cynicism over ideals) was important, and his half of the Pokemon became Republican/Conservative Reshiram. Fire as an energy source is conservative and traditional, and do I even need to point out the symbolism of it being white? The other brother believed that only Ideals (good ideas with no real way to implement them) should rule the country, creating Democratic/Liberal Zekrom. Electricity as an energy source is new and modern. And it's black — say no more. The dragons battled with each other, creating a great divide in the country (the Civil War) that has still not healed. Left in the dust was Kyurem, the Gray Ice Dragon, who as a moderate, is so frozen by indecision that it cannot support either Reshiram or Zekrom, and thus represents being unable to accomplish anything in modern America. Thus it is represented by it being frozen to a stand-still in a cave, because of America's polarized politics since the Great Southern Strategy that widened the split from the civil war decades ago that continues to send messages to Americans that there shall be no compromise in the rule of the country. It's actually very clever and biting satire if you think about it.
Eevee and Porygon are readily available in regions near UnovaBefore, they were rare Pokémon given as gifts. Perhaps this is because they had to be imported from the regions near Unova. In a hypothetical Generation 6, Eevee will appear in the wild, ready to catch and train. This will also give a chance for new Eeveelutions to be added the game.
Genesect isn't as strong as it was originally envisioned to be by Team PlasmaFor a Pokemon intended to be the strongest ever, it falls short of that goal and seems weaker than several other legendaries and even a few normal Pokemon, and its own signature move is just a weak version of Judgment with most of its types being outclassed by normal TM moves Genesect can learn. Because of N canceling Genesect's development and pulling support, and only one scientist continuing to work on Genesect, the end result is a shadow of What Could Have Been.
Volcarona is partly based on a seraph.It has six wings, fire powers, and its prevo has been compared to Arceus. In Christianity, the seraph is the highest in the angel hierarchy. Volcarona has the highest BST of all non-legendary Bugs. In Judaism, the seraph is the fifth in the hierarchy. Volcarona has the fifth highest BST of all non-legendary Pokemon, behind Arcanine (4th), Archeops (3rd), Pseudo-legendaries (2nd), and Slaking (1st).
Volcarona was originally intended to be a legendary Pokémon.It's a solar deity/seraphim moth that's found in a temple. I'm surprised they didn't make it a legendary anyway.
Genesect once preyed on Yanmega.The time period that Genesect comes from is the exact same time period that meganeura (What Yanmega is based on) came from as well. As Genesect was feared as the ultimate hunter, it's not too much of a stretch to guess that Yanmega was on its diet. Yanmega might have even developed Speed Boost as a way to retreat from Genesect, and at a later date lost Tinted Lens in favor of Compound Eyes to aid in spotting a Genesect and fleeing.
Shiny male Frillish are supposed to represent polluted ocean waterSelf-explanatory.
Kyurem will be the box mascot for Grey/Transparent.Given that Reshiram and Zekrom were the box mascots for Black and White, respectively, plus the previous generations, you fill in the rest of the details.
They will add Pokémon #650 in Grey/Clear.It would fit with the whole, "Recreating the feeling of Red/Blue." And there's this. A new Poké perhaps?
Volcarona is the first of a new group of Pokemon similar to pseudo-legendaries.Unlike pseudo-legendaries, which are legendary in nothing but their BST's and perhaps usage by endgame trainers, this group (Hereby dubbed "semi-legendaries") actually have the traits of legendary Pokemon. That is to say, they are unique enemies encountered at very high levels, have BST's above all but a handful of normal Pokemon, have Pokedex entries which refer to them having legendary powers or roles in history, and are occasionally featured in sidequests.
Neither Genosect nor Genesect are its official name.At least as far as I know. My only evidence is that neither name appears in the strategy guide, yet there are 649 Pokemon listed.
Ghetsis' Pokemon are all Punch Clock Villains."Pokemon act bad because Master bad," to quote the anime. They're all decent creatures, just loyal to Ghetsis for whatever reasons they might have. They may not even be aware of his huge nasty streak if they're half as sheltered as N. In fact, they're all abused rescues, just like N's playmates. This was intentional on Ghetsis' part: they're all very loyal to him for rescuing them, and they fit into the black-and-white worldview he conditioned N to have, as well.
Ghetsis's Pokemon are just as bad as he is.Ghetsis wanted to make sure that his Pokemon were completely loyal to him, and thus had to be willing to do anything for him. So he caught only Pokemon that were as sick as him. Hey, who else could have a drink with him?
Genesect is the Scyther line's ancestor.Just look at the similarities in their sprites, such as a near-humanoid body structure, very prominent abdomens with two legs protruding from them, arms that have blades instead of digits, and looking a bit hunched over at times. Then there's how both Scizor and Genesect are Bug/Steel, and while Genesect was feared as the ultimate hunter in the past, Scizor dominated the modern metagame. Adding fuel to this speculation, on the real life side of things, it is theorized that mantises evolved from proto-cockroaches which originated in the exact same time period that Genesect came from.
Genesect was revived from Scyther.This theory builds off the above theory's logic, but it's the other way around. Think about it: neither Scyther nor Scizor appear anywhere in Black and White, and it's said that Pokemon Black and White take place a decade or so after the events of Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum. Perhaps Genesect isn't quite as ancient as we think...
Vullaby isn't wearing a skull for a diaper.Similar to Togepi, it's actually wearing part of its egg.
Kyurem's new form in the third version will be Dragon/Water instead of Dragon/Ice.Every generation introduces a Water type mascotnote Kyurem's current Ice type is because ice is water that's lost heat, just as Kyurem lost most of its powers when Reshiram and Zekrom split from it. Kyurem regaining power in its "complete" form will cause it to warm back up and become part Water. "But its hidden moves are Ice!", you say? Seeing as Kyurem's new form will already be incompatible with Black and White, Gamefreak will create a new Ability just for Kyurem's new form. Said Ability will change all Ice type moves used by Kyurem into Water type ones, ensuring that it'll always get STAB from Freeze Shock and Ice Burn regardless of what form it's in.
Reshiram and Zekrom's genders.Okay, so going by game mechanics they're both genderless, but this is the epileptic tree garden, after all. Have at it.
Reshiram and Zekrom were originally part of Kyurem.This is the reason why it looks weird and is weaker than the others; something split its power into separate beings.
Boldore and Gigalith don't have eyes either.Those dents on their faces are ears, just like Roggenrola's.
Reshiram and Zekrom were originally intended to represent good and evil.This is apparent when contrasting Reshiram's angel wings, graceful appearance and bright blue eyes with Zekrom's "mecha-demon" wings, huge mouth with sharp teeth and sinister red eyes. This probably wasn't done due to the Fridge Logic involved in the protagonist owning a truly evil Pokémon and it somehow obeying him/her, but might manifest itself in some way if, for example, Reshiram is shown to have a more peaceful and/or caring personality while Zekrom is shown to have a more aggressive and/or judgmental personality in the anime. (And given the suggestion above that Reshiram represents righteousness while Zekrom represents judgment...)
The Abyssal Ruins were a temple to ArceusAll of the plates can be found there (the person who gives you the two other plates said he found them in the ruins). The heiroglyphs inside the ruins may be doctrine from the religion. i.e. Wars create tears. All is precious. etc. Finally, The King may be referring to some sort of Messiah or Arceus Himself.
Hydreigon is an Omnicidal Maniac because it had two heads.Zwelious has two heads, each with their own personality. Hydreigon has three heads, but only one brain. Hydreigon has thusly become insane, because a) its two feuding minds were merged or b) one of its minds died, and the other is unable to deal with the loss. Conclusion: Hydreigon is a Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds, driven mad by the radical changes to its fragile mind.
Reshiram, Zekrom, and Kyurem are somehow connected to Spiral Energy.Based on the last part of the last WMG, sure, why not? Perhaps Reshiram and Zekrom represent the dual nature of Spiral Energy, while Kyruem is Spiral Energy in its purest form. Spiral Energy originates from DNA, which is a double helix. It has the power to create, but if stretched too far, it will destroy everything, which makes Spiral Energy have a "light" and a "dark" side, if you will. And if the speculation about Kyurem being the dragon from which Reshiram and Zekrom originated is correct, then Kyurem would represent the light and dark sides of Spiral Energy in unity. In this case, Reshiram could represent the creative, "light" power of Spiral Energy, while Zekrom represents the destructive, "dark" power of Spiral Energy. But Light Is Not Good and Dark Is Not Evil. In fact, Zekrom may exist to keep Reshiram in balance as a reminder of the destruction that can be caused by the unbridled will to create.
Kyurem is the ancient enemy of Unova.It came from a meteor after the settlements were built but before civilization progressed in pre Unova. Kyurem caused perpetual hail in the region and smote everything it saw moving with Ice Burn and Freeze Shock. The people had a pessimistic view of Pokemon in general because of it until the hero of legend befriended a dragon sympathetic to the people's plight and used it to slay their oppressor. Kyurem wasn't really dead though, just fainted. It became buried by sediment and forgotten by all but Lacunosa Town as the hero's conflict with his brother ensued. Then it returned in the modern era, a shadow of its former self but hungry for revenge! It took the edge off of that hunger by feeding on Lacunosa at night, slowly regaining its strength. When Kyurem is fully restored, Unonva may come to an end because the Pokemon that defeated it long ago is no more.
The Litwick line is connected to Hell somehow.Litwick, Lampent and Chandelure are demons, who also function as the Anthropomorphic Personification of Hell itself. They go fetch really bad and troublesome souls, and are usually an example of Dark Is Not Evil. Good Is Not Soft though: if they consider you evil, they'll steal your soul and use it as fuel for all eternity. The reason why people like Ghetsis haven't been targeted is because they usually have Pokemon to take out the Chandelure/it's easier to just take them when they become Yamask. Stories of innocent people's souls being taken by them are due to some being douchebags. This would go to explain their great special attack, nice speed and Ghost-type: to counteract Yamask.
Sigilyph is an extraterrestial Pokémon.1. Its appearance is very unnatural. 2. Like Roswell, Sigilyph's habitat is a desert. 3. Sigilyph can learn Cosmic Power. All this could lead to the fact that Sigilyph, like Deoxys and possibly Kyurem, is extraterrestial.
Yamask just wants a hug.Poor thing just wants some friends.....
Both rumors about Kyurem's origin are true.That is, it is what's left of the original dragon that split into Reshiram and Zekrom, but it also came to Lacunosa Town in an icy meteor. When the original dragon split apart, Kyurem lost all of its energy and body heat, ice coating its body as it fell to the ground. Some time after its impact, it awoke, but remained where it was due to being too cold and weak to journey forth (while it is powerful by other Pokemon's standards, it only has a fraction of the power it had when it was complete), and because it had no purpose motivating it to go anywhere else (as its belief in truth and ideals alike were taken in the split).
Sigilyph is an artificial Pokemon constructed by the same civilization that made Golett and Golurk.1. Its appearance is very unnatural, and has been likened to a type of doll called a kachina. 2. Its only known habitat is the Relic Castle, which we know is related in some way to the Dragonspiral Tower. 3. Their only known normal behavior is to defend the Relic Castle, based on memories from long ago. All of this leads me to think it was constructed by the same people who made Golett and Golurk to serve as a guard for the Relic Castle, just as Golurk and Golett defend Dragonspiral Tower. The reason they still defend the ruins even though the civilization is long gone is because it's essentially programmed into their instincts, and they don't know any better.
Escavalier, despite flying at fast speed, is still very slow in landing attacks!And that's because it cannot control its speed. Once it starts moving, it cannot change direction, making its movement too predictable. And it even has a hard time stopping, too! So ultimately, Escavaler will spend a lot of time moving and adjusting its speed before its move used activate, while its foe has already used a move beforehand. Hense, its 20 base speed stat.
Escavalier only flies at fast speed only when it travels for a long distanceIn battle, where its foe is not enough to use its full speed, it hops around.
When people become Yamask, their personality shifts to that of a Pokemon.This may go to explain why Yamask don't attack you for trying to capture them, or why the government allows it. When being reborn as Pokemon, your personality shifts so that you become just as interested in battle as any other Pokemon. The reason they cry is not because they miss being human(unless they didn't die content), but because they're having trouble reconcilling their human memories. And even if they remained the same after death, centuries with nothing but Pokemon is going to change that.
Kyurem suffers from severe Horror Hunger.This could go to explain why it's said to devour people and Pokemon. Kyurem would've been severly damaged from crashing into the Earth via meteor, and being the broken remains of the original dragon. Being part Ice-type may also mean it lacks the powerful energy that Zekrom and Reshiram seem to run off. The poor Kyurem is a Non-Malicious Monster, desperately trying to keep itself alive. It eats a whole bunch of people and Pokemon because something that huge needs a lot of food.
Swoobat was a Sonic the Hedgehog homageIt's fairly similar to Rouge the Bat. Heart-motif? Check. White? Check.
The Kami trio is related to the Weather Trio.The Kami trio seem capable of manipulating the weather and enviorment, so it isn't too much of a strecth. Perhaps, like how its suggested that Manaphy is the "prince" to Kyogre, the Kami Trio are princes to Rayquaza. They're all Flying types, after all.
Shiny Yamask are the spirits of incredibly wealthy/royal citizens of Unova.And shiny Sigilyph could be their guards.
The Solosis line is a bundle of sentient cancer cells.They're an ever-growing, contiously multiplying bundle of cells that are said to survive in any environment, similar to how cancer cells never stop growing and are nigh-impossible to kill. Similar to how Deoxys is a virus that came to life, the Solosis line could be cancer cells from a powerful Pokémon/person with psychic powers, given a life of their own. Perhaps cancer was cured in the Pokémon universe by turning it into independent beings (Solosis).
Elgyem and Beheyeem are descended from DeoxysThey're both alien, Psychic-type, vaguely humanoid Pokémon.
Sigilyph is the evolved form of Unown.
Chargestone Cave was once underwater millions of years ago.It seems somewhat odd that the Tynamo line, despite being based off lampreys, are pure Electric types with Levitate. There's a good chance that Chargestone Cave and other areas of Unova were once underwater caves. When water levels declined, the Tynamo line adapted to this by losing their Water type to prevent dehydration, and Levitate to move out of the water.
Kyurem is the Pokéverse's version of Cell.Think about it:
Third Game Predictions
'This entire folder is Jossed by the announcement of X/Y''.
The third game will feature Kyurem on the cover.It might make more sense if the third game is a "transparent" or "clear" version. It might also make the box legendaries of BW a Fire, Ice, Lightning trio.
Kyurem will have an alternate form on the third game.
Kyurem will fight you in a triple battle — with Zekrom and Reshiram at his side.
Going along with the last few guesses, Kyurem will get a new signature move.
The third game will have you facing against N in a double battle at the climax, and N will have both Reshiram and Zekrom.
Alternatively, N will have Reshiram and Ghetsis will get Zekrom while you get Kyurem.N got the White Stone in Dragonspiral Tower like usual, while Ghetsis finds the Black stone in the Relic Catsle. At the museum, you get the Gray/Clear/whatever Stone. Then after you defeat N, Ghetsis could steal Reshiram from him and have you go into a double battle (with or without N) with him using both dragons. That way, when you defeat him, he has to release Reshiram and Zekrom so you can catch them both, like Groudon/Kyogre in Emerald and Dialga/Palkia in Platinum.
Third Game Mascot Predictions
The Third Version will have four more GymsThere's quite a lot of crap after the Elite Four, but there aren't really any big trainers to take on. Adding 4 more Gym Leaders would sort of even that out.
In the third version, Pokémon will be able to follow you around like in Heart Gold and Soul SilverNot only will they have had plenty of time to create the sprites for all the new Pokémon, but this would be yet another Call Back/Mythology Gag to the first generation, where the Updated Re-release (Yellow) was the first game in which a Pokémon could follow you around.
In the third game's timeline, Reshiram and Zekrom never split.They stayed together as Kyurem's complete forme. You will battle N with complete Kyurem. N never managed to catch it, so he will have Genesect like he originally planned.
In the third version, Bianca will become championIt was Dummied Out, which caused fan outrage considering it would have completed the comparison to Gen 1 and 2, would have been a nice plot twist, and was simply cooler. Game Freak would hear out these cries, or took it out for the third game. It will be similar to Wallace taking over for Steven in Emerald.
In the third version, Cheren will become championSince he stated at the end of the main game that he beat the Elite 4, why not? Either there will be a new rival to take his place, or only Bianca will be a rival. Question lies in either of these scenarios if there will be some story about him disappearing.
The third game will be for the 3DS.This is certainly possible. Remember, Gold and Silver were playable on the original Game Boy, while Crystal was not.
Possible additions/changes for the third versionOK, let's get started (some of these may or may not be accurate, but are based on previous trends):
N is half human, half PokemonI'm just throwing out this theory and I think this because a.) There is a story that does state that a human mated with a Pokemon in D/P. b.) His reason for wanting to separate Pokemon and humans from one another.
Leaf will appear in the third versionWell, it would make a good counterpart to Red on Mt. Silver, thus completing a retro-reboot comparison (especially if it's together with the above guess). You don't have to battle her, but a battle would be nice. Preferably, she'll appear as a Fall - Winter counterpart to Cynthia's appearance. It would make Blue's battle remix sensible, being that she would technically be a "rival" of sorts to both Blue and Red.
White Forest and Black City will be combined togetherIf "Gray" is the name of the third game, something has to happen with White Forest and Black City since they were exclusives to White and Black.
The third version will be Purple and Genesect will be the mascot.Purple version was indeed trademarked alongside Gray, Black, and White, and conveniently enough there's a purple legendary — Genesect. As a cyborg, Genesect reflects the fusion or balance of nature and technology, both of which are themes in Black and White. It's also worth noting that its backstory heavily revolves around Team Plasma.
Alternatively, Genesect will be an important part of the after-game.To be specific, it will deal with what happened to Ghetsis in the after-game. Perhaps Ghetsis will use it to regain a power base, and it'll be up to you to stop him. Ghetsis will end up using it, and you will gain it after beating him.
Sawsbuck will change types with the seasons.Similar to Burmy and Wormadam, Deerling's coat change will remain purely cosmetic. However, upon evolving into Sawsbuck, it will have a differing primary type depending on the season, with altered learnsets for each, so that the alternate forms aren't totally trivial.
Male Gothorita will receive a Dawn Stone evolution. It will be Psychic/Steel type and will be known as the Cutting Pokemon.Think about it. They already parallel the Ralts line, so this would be the next logical step. Besides, the Dawn stone is the only Evolution Stone to not receive a Gen. V evolution yet.
Kyurem is in no way related to Reshiram and Zekrom story-wise and will not be the third cover legendary.Gamefreak decided to troll us by purposely making a Pokemon that fills the quota of a third version legendary. As it turns out, Kyurem has a completely different origin from Reshiram and Zekrom, all the similarities between Kyurem and the other two were coincidences, and Kyurem itself has little to no plot importance (think Heatran).
Kyurem will have at least two new forms in Pokemon GreyNote that there are two unused ice-type moves that would fit perfectly as Kyurem's lvl 100 move; Ice Burn and Freeze Shock. Ice Burn is a special attack with a chance to cause burns. Freeze Shock is a physical attack with a chance to cause paralysis. Kyurem will get an entirely seperate move at level 100 in its base form. One alternate form will focus on special attack and special defense like Reshiram with an even larger hit to physical attack and defense. This form will change the base form's lvl 100 attack to Ice Burn. The other form will focus on physical attack and physical defense like Zekrom with an even larger hit to special attack and defense. This form will change the base form's lvl 100 attack to Freeze Shock.
There won't be a third game.As allegedly reported here.
The 3rd game is not "gray" or "grey" but "transparent"Look at the Canon Name for the PCs. Also, the Japanese gives "the implication of being untainted" as well (our "restored forme" Kyurem would be "untainted", no?)
The shiny mascots will have a story role in the 3rd versionWhy go through the trouble of making it so Reshiram and Zekrom are never shiny otherwise?
Ghetsis will get some form of Freudian Excuse, or some explanation for his actions.They did it with Cyrus: in Diamond and Pearl, he was fully A God Am I, yet in Platinum he had shades of Well-Intentioned Extremist. Pokemon Gray Ghetsis will also have shades of Well-Intentioned Extremist — his conquest of Unova would serve to fix the damage caused by the fighting of the two brothers. This would make his manipulation of his son all the more effective at being a Moral Event Horizon: because this time, he once existed outside it.
Alternatively, Ghetsis will get worse in Pokemon Grey.How is that possible? Just put in a few cutscenes or lines of dialogue elaborating his dealings with his son. Bonus points for revealing various kinds of psychological manipulation, Mind Rape, Stockholm Syndrome, etc. Or details about N possibly not being related to Ghetsis, thus confirming that he's a cradle robber. Or, you know, explaining what the hell happened to A-M. Or, if you want to go out on a limb, some very subtle implications of worse things yet...
Following the above, Grey will sit on the cynical side of the Sliding Scale.Black and White was already making small steps in that direction, with its Deconstruction-heavy storyline and the most appalling villain ever this side of Cipher. Grey will take this to its logical conclusion, deconstructing the story of Black and White itself, while also turning what Black and White did Up to Eleven. N will be the most affected -— his backstory will be more fleshed out, his traits thoroughly taken apart (the ability to talk to Pokemon above comes to mind), and maybe even a Downer Ending set up for him. Suffice to say, things will go From Bad to Worse.
Ghetsis will recruit Giovanni and Cyrus in the post-game
Moveset additionsSome random predictions
Most, if not all, Unova Pokemon found in the third version will naturally have their Dream World AbilitiesOne of the main goals of there being neither any old Pokemon, nor new ones related to old ones was to give things a fresh feeling. By the time the third version comes out, that feeling will be long gone as all of the new Pokemon are well-known. What better way to keep the fresh feeling than by having all of the Gen 5 Pokemon have their previously unobtainable DR Abilities? This would explain why things have been set up in Black and White to make it virtually impossible to obtain DR versions of most Gen 5 Pokemon without hacking...
"Dennis" will be an Ascended Meme of sorts in a future game.Not that they'll call Ghetsis or Genesect, "Dennis," but any future game from the third game on will have Ghetsis's theme play for wild Genesect encounters.
Volkner will cameo.He's name-dropped by Shauntal in one of her possible pre-battle quotes, which pretty much implies that he's faced the Unova Elite Four before. Perhaps he'll actually appear in the third game as another Bonus Boss (and maybe even become the new champion? In the postgame that is).
The third version variation of Black City/White Forest will be a combination of the two.It will be called "Gray/Grey(if titled so)/Transparent(if titled so and Kyurem is the version mascot)/Purple (if Genesect is the version mascot) Village."
The third version will not be called Gray or TransparentIt will be called "Void"; Reshiram & Zekrom represent yin & yang, and Kyurem supposedly represents the void outside yin & yang.
The third version wont be called Gray or Transparent... but SpectrumAnd instead of getting Kyurem you get either Meloetta, Keldeo, or Genesect (or Genosect, depending on the official name)/Victini. It will also add a 3rd member to Ghetsis and N's family (who will get the tao trio) And at the end of the game you team up with Cheren and Bianca (who will each have one of the two legendaries you don't) against the 3 and their legendary trio
The final story battle will see you and an ally / allies double- or triple-teaming against GhetsisWith Cheren & Bianca, perhaps, or maybe with Alder and N.
Cynthia will play a role in the plot of the third game, however minor said role may beJust a hunch. Maybe she'll stop Ghetsis from escaping, or something.
There will be another Bonus BossSpecifically, Gary Motherfuckin' Oak. Or "Blue", if you prefer. After all, they couldn't have included that theme in there for no reason.
The "dates" in Nimbasa City will be expandedA date's team will level up, evolve, and add new members every time they are fought, and a PC's relationship with them will change, and yes, White/Touko/Hilda will be given the option to kiss Aurora. Further, each "date" will be a possible partner in Battle Frontier Multi-Battle areas in addition to the opposite sex player character ala Stat Trainers.
Alternatively, Gray will add in an entire Dating Sim sidequest ala Harvest Moon for the Nimbasa dates. (Wall of Text ahead.)This is wishful thinking, but it could work. (Note: My vision of Gray adds ferris wheel dates in the form of Bianca (for males) and Cheren (for females), for future reference.) Like stated above, you would be able to battle the ferris wheel dates and more than once with a stronger team; whether you win or lose would affect your Relationship Values. Losing against a date would decrease your values, while winning would increase them. After enough relationship points have been earned, the date would confess their love to you, and you would be able to choose whether or not to start going out — although to preserve the E rating, the Hiker and Waitress would have to become a best friend or something along those lines instead. (The Kindergartener could probably still be an option as long as it was something like "I'm gonna marry you when I grow up!" or something else that's not too close to jailbait for comfort.) Of course, there would be rewards. Talking to a date after agreeing to be their boyfriend/girlfriend/best friend, in a location that they'd (hypothetically) tell you upon saying yes, would give you an item, maybe once every other day in their respective season. Cheren and Bianca would give you the best rewards, so of course they'd be the hardest to get; to avoid complications during the main storyline, you would have to call them on the Xtranceiver first to open up a Ferris Wheel Date Moment with them, and they most likely wouldn't always say yes. Having Bianca or Cheren as your girl/boyfriend would possibly open up one or two new subplots involving a date with them (Bianca's would definitely involve her father turning into a more conventional Overprotective Dad, except with a less sexual bend), although this opportunity probably wouldn't arise until after the game has ended to avoid pacing issues. Like I said, wishful thinking, and this probably wouldn't happen, but it'd be nice to see.
The Unova Battle Frontier varation would be an amusement park.Since everything is all sports, amusement parks and ice cream, maybe the Battle Frontier would be considered an amusement park? There would still be a frontier, but the buildings would be theme park ride designs. For example, Battle Tower =
The Relic Castle will have new areas.There you'll be able to catch Unown.
The third game will introduce additional drives for GenesectThe shock and burn drives are exclusive to Black, and the Douse and Chill Drives are exclusive to White. It only stands to reason that there will be two additional drives exclusive to Grey.
The third game will have an alternate form for GenesectUsually revived fossil Pokemon are part Rock type, but Genesect is part Steel because it got a new body. Wonder how deadly Genesect still would be if it in its original form as Rock/Bug?
The above tropers aren't thinking high enough. Genesect will get four new forms; one for each Drive.Just like Rotom got half a dozen new forms in Platinum that now give it new type combos, Genesect's drives will change its type combo to be Bug/[Drive's type] in Grey.
The above troper is thinking too high. Kyurem, Meloetta, AND Genosect/Genesect will each get a new respective Forme.Kyurem will have a Regenerated Forme, Meloetta a Secret Forme (whose secondary type is Dark), and Genosect/Genesect a Primitive Forme (whose secondary type will be Rock instead of Steel).
The Above Troper Is Thinking Too In Between, Reshiram, Zekrom, and Kyurem will all get new formesNo idea what Reshiram and Zekrom would get, but it would be awesome. Maybe their types would switch?
The above Tropers aren't going far enough. EVERY B/W legendary will get a new FormeFor example, Victini could get an Atomic Forme.
Forget new forms. Grey will introduce Pokemon #650.If Genesect is supposed to be the Mewtwo of Gen 5, then who's the Mew equivalent? The answer is Primisect, the Bug/Rock unmodified version of Genesect who will be introduced as a Grey exclusive and have its fossil distributed in a Wi-Fi event.
The 3rd game will feature unique eggs for each hatchable speciesNon-hatchable species would default to "standard" egg design.
To make an official WMG of it, Cynthia will organize a tournament between all the champions, with a total of 16 competitorsSo, at first I was wondering how a tournament between all the champions was possible, because I couldn't figure out how the number of Champions would allow for an even division of matches. Then I thought... what if it didn't just include NPC champions, but also all of the previous player characters? Going off that, the list of competitors would be 1)The player, 2)Blue, 3)Lance, 4)Steven, 5)Wallace (since he was the Champion in Emerald), 6)Cynthia, 7)Alder, 8)A returning N (after all, since he beat Alder that means he was a Champion for a brief period of time), 9)Red, 10)Leaf, 11)Ethan, 12)Lyra, 13)Brendan, 14)May, 15)Lucas, and 16)Dawn! That way it could match up perfectly!
The third version will introduce VS sprites for legendaries.The last third version introduced VS sprites for important trainers, and we're already at the point where legendaries like the Musketeers and Energy Dragons have unique battle intros. Seems like common sense to me that the next step will be vs sprites for all legendary Pokemon.
The Musketeer Trio will have a large roleThink about what Team Plasma does with their stolen Pokemon use them as forced labor to make N's castle. And then there's Ghetsis' plan. Won't sit well with four Pokemon who protect Pokemon from humans. Plus, the Trio Master Cobalion is a dang good counter for Ghetsis' Hydreigon, being very fast, resistant to both its main types, and able to hit its Fighting Type weakness hard. So either capturing one or all of them will be a plot point or they'll pull a Big Damn Heroes moment to help.
Volcarona will get lunar and eclipse forms in the third version.That's why it doesn't have any counterparts unlike the other sun-themed Pokémon. The lunar form shall be Bug/Water, and the eclipse form will be Bug/Dark, Ghost, or Psychic.
Gym Leaders will be able to be re-matched in Undella Town.Why Undella Town? It's a small town, and it seems logical that Gym leaders might take up Villas.
Both White Forest and Black City.In one point of the game, a worker will tell you that they are demolishing White Forest in order to make room for Black City, and if the player signs the petition, then they will keep White Forest.
Nintendo is hiding a secret pokémon programmed into the game, but it's almost impossible to hack.Any guesses on what it will be?
The final few battles will be fairly different in terms of lineup.Since N will likely be using both Reshiram and Zekrom, he will lose both Carracosta and Archeops, with the remaining slot being filled by a Darmanitan, perhaps even a Zen Darmanitan. Ghetsis' team will be nearly identical, but he will lose his Bisharp for Genesect, sending it out first and in a cutscene, complete with N's reaction, prior to the battle.
Team Rocket will play a part in Grey/WhateverBased mostly on the anime's tendency to Take a Third Option, which usually has something to do with the third version — getting Pikachu and (eventually) Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle, dealing with both Kyogre and Groudon, Cyrus ending up in another dimension, and so on and so forth. Team Plasma has yet to make much of an appearance in the anime (granted, most of that is due to the tsunami, which, among other things, threw the air order off note ) and the You No Take Candle Ex Rocket Grunt from HG/SS makes an appearance in Icirrus City (in the winter, at least). Maybe the two factions each get a hold of one of the legendaries (who knows which one gets which) and go to war against one another (as "Rocket-dan VS Plasma-dan!" note would lead us to believe), leaving Kyurem for the player. Don't ask about the rest — at this point I'm just making stuff up as I go along.
A child of a past character will pop upBlack and White takes place at a vague point in the timeline, anywhere from 5 to 10 years in the future. If the Rocket guy could have a kid, why not someone else?
A protagonist from a previous game will pop up all grown upOr at least as a late teenager. Preferably in Cynthia's role, since she honestly didn't do much for the game besides pop up.
Challenger's Cave will feature Mewtwo and Genesect in the third version.Challenger's Cave feels reminiscent of Cerulean Cave, as it features very high level Pokemon and is blocked off by an NPC until the E4 have been beaten. For some odd reason, this cave lacks a legendary Pokemon despite one trainer even mentioning that one and its student are rumored to be there. Some people think this means Cobalion and Keldeo, but I think otherwise. The legendary Pokemon spoken of is Mewtwo, and its student is Genesect; it makes sense that two artificial legendaries would be drawn to each other, with the older Mewtwo teaching the younger Genesect in a location similar to its former home.
The 3rd Isshu game will feature Blue and Miror B. cameos.Blue's music, extensively remixed, is found in-game. Isshu's new Pokemon include an Afro Pokemon and a Pokeball headed Pokemon.
The final battle with Ghetsis will be a triple battleN catches both Reshiram and Zekrom; you summon Kyurem with the god stone. He reverts back to the form of the dragon that created the Unova reagion, you kick N's ass. Ghestis would show up in anger and unleash Genosect, Haxorus, and some third Pokemon at you. N would be attacked as he tried to heal your Pokemon; while weakened, he hands you Reshiram and Zekrom's pokeballs. You then get into the most awesome final battle ever! This is also the reason as to why Ghestis and Genosect share the same theme.
Opelucid City will appear......as a mix of futuristic and ancient, either with the sides clearly split in between, or with the futuristic and ancient elements fully intermingled.
You move to the other side of the town after earning the Nimbassa City's badgeIn the 3rd version, after getting the Bolt Badge and supposedly head next to Driftveil City, the bridge remains shut. Instead, you get to move onto the Black City/White Forest area (new location replacing them) and challenge new gym leaders there as well as Undella Town and Lacusona Town, rather than Clay, Skyla, and Brycen. In Lacusona Town, there is even a Kyurem event in the Giant Chasm that could equate to the Reshiram/Zekrom event in Dragon Spiral. And finally, you'll move onto Opelucid City for the 8th and final gym.
Instead of the Gym Leaders, the Previous Player Characters / Rivals will pull the Big Damn Heroes moment in the third game.To be specific, Leaf, Gold/Ethan/Jimmy (his name in Pokemon Chronicles), Kris/Marina (her name in Pokemon Chronicles), Brendan, Wally, Lucas, and Barry will come to the aid of the player character when (s)he runs into the Seven Sages. It will satisfy the desire everyone has for a Previous Player-Character Cameo, and will more than likely cause the internet to explode from such awesomeness. For a bit of humor, Brendan and Lucas will gripe about how May and Dawn couldnt make it to the battle.
N will be split into 2 separate characters
The shaking grass mechanic will be tweaked.How? Well, right now, shaking grass usually will yield Audino, but rarely it will produce other rare Pokémon. (usually evolved forms of Pokémon found by normal methods). In the new version, It works the same, but the chances of finding Audino are lower (by a little bit since Audino are great EXP cows), but you'll also find... wild Pokémon that are found in the area by normal means. What's so different about these special Pokémon then? Instead of having either their normal abilities, They'll have their dream world abilities instead.
Just like the Sinnoh Dex in Platinum, The Unova Pokédex will be expanded.It'll include all the pre-5th gen Pokémon that are caught in the wild in Unova (mostly found in areas that are inaccessable until you've beaten the E4.
Black 2/White 2 are full sequels, not an Updated Re-releaseSame mechanics, but a new land.
Alternatively: Black 2/White 2 are bothThe setting's the same and it has the same trainers, gym leaders, and Elite Four with modified teams (like every other 3rd Version). However, it takes place after B/W, features a new protagonist, and has an in-story reason why they have modified teams.
Kyurem's new forms are actually the resaults of fusion dances.If it were the original form of the dragon, that had both Yin and Yang, then it wouldn't look like just a frankenstien mashup of Kyurm and either Reshiram, or Zekrom. Rather, Kyurem and the other dragon will be able to merge temporaly into one super powerful legendary.
Pokemon Gray will be the third game in the trilogyThey said there would not be a Pokemon Gray Version, but that did not stop them from creating Pokemon Black 2 and White 2. In the sequels, we have seen that Kyurem will somehow acquire the energy of either Zekrom or Reshiram, depending on the version, and will become Black Kyurem, or White Kyurem. More than likely, the creators might be building up towards the unveiling of the "Original Dragon". What do you get when you mix Black and White? Gray. In Pokemon Gray, all three Dragons will become one again, and we will finally get to see the "Original Dragon", which leads to...
The "Original Dragon" is the second of a trio with ArceusThis theory is based on the Trimurti of Hindu mythology. The Yin-Yang symbol symbolizes unity, and Zekrom and Reshiram are two halves of the "Original Dragon" that embodies that symbology. In this case, Arceus is "Brahma, the Creator", and the "Original Dragon" is "Vishnu the maintainer or preserver." This leaves the doors open for a 6th Generation of Pokemon, which introduces the Pokemon equivalent of "Shiva the destroyer or transformer", completing the Divine Trio.
Remainder of 5th gen WMG
All entries that are not generation-specific have been moved to the X/Y page. The remaining entries can be considered Jossed.
Gen V will have a pseudo-remake of RBY on the 3DS VCThe data structure will be overhauled and be compatible with Black/White and a few odd new features (like the return of the original female PC cut for space and Professor Oak boss fight), but everything will be in cruddy 8-bit monochrome (and include the the post 151 with newly created equally bad sprites). OK, not likely to actually happen, but would be cool.
We will revisit Hoenn in generation 5... just not as a remakeIt will be another "x years after" (14 seems to be the guessed time between generation 1/3 and 5) scenario as part of another region's game. The original poster's predictions:
N will reappear... as a Pokémon RangerIt seems very fitting.
There will be a fourth game as a shout out to Yellow.Gen V has a lot of intentional similarities to Gen I. Well, Gen I had three games plus Yellow. My guess is that Purple, Brown, Scarlet, and Crimson (all trademarked with Pokemon Grey, which will probably be the third version) are all possible names for a fourth game where Zorua follows you around.
Mewtwo will be the mascot of a future Gen V title (possibly a Wii/Wii U RPG)Checking Bulbapedia's signature move list says that Mewtwo's obtaining Psystrike makes it the only thing to gain a such a move after its introduction. My guess: Ardos creates a new Mewtwo from recovered files, then either attempts to make it a Shadow Pokémon, or (much more clever) finds a Manaphy and attempts to hijack its body for ULTIMATE POWER, but either way gets psychically turned into a pretzel for his trouble.
There will be an Embedded PrecursorNot only that, but (not likely, but it would be awesome if) there will be downloadable add-ons for the DSi and 3DS that allow the player to visit each of the regions in the previous games.
Future RemakesLike previous WMGs, I believe the Gen III games will get remakes, however, I'm taking this one step further with the idea for another Gen I remake. I think Nintendo should put all 5 generations on the DS and since Gen V is supposed to recapture the beginning of the Pokemon series, a remake of the Gen I games would most likely help with that. Besides, Kanto has been included in every generation prior Gen V. It could also ease the hate for Gen V, just imagine Kanto with Gen V's graphics, it's when Scenery Porn meets Nostalgia, it just has to happen! In addition to this, Nintendo and Game Freak should produce a Stadium like game for the Wii that is compatible with with all 5 Gen games so all fans of any Generation can come together and have fun. With Pokemon's friendship and unity aesops in the later games, it only makes sense to make a game that could virtually unify the entire fandom. Abridged
N went to OrreWhat other region has been called "Distant Land"?
In a future Gen 5 title, a Pokémon holding an Evolite will always pass its ability on, DW ones included.
Genesect will be distributed via Ranger 4.As suggested above (by me), N will become a Pokémon Ranger. The plots of Ranger 4 will involve Genesect (Plasma Scientist decides to continue his research in some backwater region he won't be disturbed in, which just happens to be the one N goes to perhaps?). After the events of the plot, N realizes that just releasing it would be a very bad thing (At best it dies off quickly, but most likely will kill off a substantial portion of the ecosystem. At worst it will figure out how to reproduce, dooming the entire world) decides to (begrudgingly) task its care to the Hero of Truth (Send it to Black/White), the only trainer he recognizes as trustworthy.
The TM list won't remain constant throughout Gen 5The fact that we can't give them to Pokémon to hold would make this very easy to do. The Hero. Ultimately, Ghetsis will have his entire Black And White team converted into Shadow Pokemon, and in the final battle you'd have to Snag all of them to get the true ending to the game, Ghetsis completely defeated and broken at having lost the final shred of his once great plan. N will then come in and proceed to put the final nail in his coffin by Calling the Old Man Out and preventing his escape, allowing Ghetsis to finally be taken down once and for all.
We'll get three remakes this generation.Gray will be announced/released, the Ruby and Sapphire remakes will be announced/released, and everyone will be expecting the announcement of the Generation 6 original pair. Instead, we'll get WaterBlue, the final member of the trio, which will finally cross the ocean - as a remake. For bonus awesome points, it'll allow you to visit Johto and/or other regions.
Some of the older spinoffs will get new games this gen.Pinball, Trading Card Game, etc. Maybe a remake, but I'm thinking a new installment.
A Unova character will cameo in the Hoenn remakesIt's unknown how long the timeskip between Emerald and BW are.
Black & White are kicking off a three-part story arc.With the announcement of Black 2 & White 2 being sequels to Black & White, one can assume that there is going to be some sort of major story connections between the two releases. Gen V was created with the main purpose of shaking up the Pokemon formula, so one can assume it applies to the typical game release formula of main games, Updated Re-release and remake of main games from two generations ago. We've already seen how Black & White shook things up, so we'll skip to Black 2 & White 2. These two games will shake up the whole Updated Re-release formula by one of two methods. One, it will be a sequel story set in Unova, with new protagonists. The second, the game will feature the same protagonists, but will be set in a new region, one that's populated entirely by existing Pokemon. The excuse for not having any Pokemon from the first game is that the player character found himself stuck in this new region without any memory of even hearing of this region before. He/she tries to get to the bottom of this and finds some familiar faces along the way. As for the remakes aspect of the formula, this would be provided by a pair of games called BlackMagma and WhiteOcean. The game world is Hoenn, but the story is a new one, once again about the Gen V protagonists. The game starts starts in Slateport, with our protagonist looking for Prof. Birch. He/she fights through Route 103, Oldale Town, and Route 101, until he/she meets Birch, at which point your path continues as it did in Ruby & Sapphire.
In the Hoenn remakes, we will get event Pokémon in a manner similar to in Emerald.It would be a good way to link the two together, and manage the filling of your Pokedex. Here are some ideas:
The Gen V Battle Frontier will be reserved for the 3D Pokemon Battle GameBy Battle Frontier, I refer to the unique battle gimmicks Pokemon Emerald, Platinum, Heart Gold and Soul Silver has. And by 3d Pokemon Battle Game, it will be the likes of Pokémon Stadium, Colosseum and Battle Revolution.
The 3D Battle Game of Gen V will also come with a remake of one version from either the RSE or RBY games in the same console.In a God-forbidden scenario where you have the 3D Battle game, but not any of the gen V handheld games, you will have at least have your personally trained Pokemon to use (rental don't count!).
Other WM Gs
The dream world was created by Devon Co.On the second floor of the building in RSE, a scientist says: I'm trying to develop a device that visually reproduces dreams of Pokemon... But it's not going well. This game most likely takes place after DPP, making it over three years since that. They probably got it to work.
The game series ended, and Gen V is just a hallucination brought on my Musharna's ability.Buying the game(s) will put us under its spell.
Unova takes place Twenty Minutes into the FutureWhich explains all the Hilarious in Hindsight.
Unova and Orre are US states in the world where Pokemon takes place.Orre was "based on Arizona". Maybe Arizona was called Orre. As for Unova, if it's really based on New York, then perhaps there was no Britain in the Pokeworld (or it was called something else), so no reason for a "New" York. No need to retcon Surge in that case.
The overworld sprites are taller because Americans/Unovans are taller than Japanese/Kantoese/Johtoese/Hoennese/SinnoheseOkay, it might have just been perspective change, but why not?
Cynthia is actually from Unova.Just to prove the above theory.
Pokemon generations are symbolic of growing up.The first gen was the simplest region, viewed with fond memories. Things weren't difficult, and everything was black and white (Lavender = scary, Rockets = all bad). But as time goes on, things change: The Pokemon get more detailed and creative, the Team of the region can be seen as good or evil, and all-together being more intricate and morally gray. Johto's introduction of breeding is like a child learning about sex: they know of it, but not all about it. Thus, a lot of it is a mystery. Black and White may be the teens or early adults. When we get the late adults, though, we will deal with full-on sex and drugs and pimps and hookers.
There will eventually be a time where you can Triple Battle against the Striaton gym leadersIt will either be when you can rematch them in the post-game playing time (if there is the option to), or in the inevitable third game. In the case of the latter, their gym would probably be later on in order not to throw newbies immediately into a complicated mechanic before they can ease in, just like how Tate and Liza were late in Hoenn.
Kyurem is the original Unova dragon from whom Reshiram and Zekrom came.It's been mentioned the Kyurem looks kind of crippled, and also that its color scheme puts it between Reshiram and Zekrom. It can be argued then that when Reshiram and Zekrom came into being, there was an element that didn't split with them, Kyurem's "core". And yet, in-game, Kyurem is still pretty potent. But its signature move, Frozen World, isn't; it's just an Icy Wind with ten extra power and five less accuracy. So what happens if Reshiram and/or Zekrom reconvene with it? This would explain Cold Flare and Frozen Bolt as resulting when Kyurem begins reabsorbing the power of the respective dragon, probably with new Yang Verge and Yin Verge Formes. This also leads to a way for Ghetsis to get even more dangerous in Gray; he could gain control of Kyurem and drain whichever dragon N recruited.
The English language manual for both games will claim the player characters and rivals are sixteen years old.If the rumor that Unova equals United States of America is right, expect to read that "16 year-old" instead "10-year old." The reason is 16 is the age when a teenager can take a driving test.
Kyurem is the way it is because something wanted to protect Lacunosa Tow.The backstory to Lacunosa Tow has it that Kyurem ate people and Pokémon there. Perhaps Reshiram and Zekrom did it, being as they're in a trio. Or maybe the musketeers, since they protect Pokémon (saving humans was just a side-effect for them) — this would have an additional effect as it fits with the medieval themes in the game. ('Slaying' a dragon... they even have an attack called Sacred Sword!)
Black and White are alternate universe versions of each otherThe legend of the version mascots talks about two brothers who helped found Unova. They began to fight over which direction the new region would take, and their dragon Pokemon companion split into Reshiram and Zekrom as a result. Which of the brothers won the fight depends on your game version. Thus why the Unova in Black is technology-themed, and the Unova in White is nature-oriented.
Addition to the above WMG; the two universes were one universe that was split by the events of Platinum.Before Team Galactic's plot was set into motion, there was just one universe, where Opelucid City was somewhere between futuristic and old-timey, and the area where black City and White Forest were a similar area (Grey something)? When Cyrus summoned both Dialga and Palkia, something not meant to ever happen, it caused such massive damage to the space-time continuum it split the universe in two, Unova taking the most damage for... some reason.
In the third version, all previous players will make cameos.For teh nostalgas. The DPPT player character already got a special mention.
Bianca and Barry are related.They do look kinda similar, don't they?
Lenora is half-Vespiquen.Think about it. Her body-shape is small at the top, but her apron makes her look big and round at the bottom. Like a Vespiquen.
N wants to separate humans and Pokemon for the sake of Pokemon, but Plasma wants to do it for humansThink of all the Pokemon related things that they could have thought of to go for this plan. Hypno stealing children, Pokemon being used to commit terrorism, Pokemon being used for crime, Pokemon attacking people, Pokemon being used as gambling, RSE's events, DPP's events, Darkai, the myths, etc. They could easily think Pokemon are too dangerous for humans to be around. N is using Plasma's wants for his own advantages, so it becomes morally grey instead of black and white like he wants.
The goal of Plasma/N is to literally separate the world between people and Pokemon (another 4chan transplant)Their plan will finally result in the Pokemon world being split into one purely of Pokemon who, for some reason, know what humans are and emulate their behavior and infrastructure to an extent; and one world of only humans. Conventional warfare comes about due to confusion and panic due to the sudden total disappearance of Pokemon.
Bianca, Cheren, and possibly N are able to be named in the English translation.To stick with the Hello, Insert Name Here (Which was absent from RSE but present in all other ones.) The names revealed are their canon names, though.
The world of Black & White is an alternate universe of the Mother universe.In this universe, the MC is Ninten; they both have baseball caps and are the heroes of their stories. Cheren is Lloyd; they both wear glasses. Bianca is Ana, they both have blonde hair and a Nice Hat. The three are friends. There is no equivalent to Teddy, in this universe he was never born. The gym badges are the eight melodies to Maria's Song (you can not get the item from Aloe to summon them until you get all the badges), personified into Zekrom or Reshiram depending on your version. Team Plasma is the equivalent to the Starmen; N and Ghetsis both represent Giygas, with N being the nigh-unstoppable part as you need the Eight Melodies to defeat as he has one legend while yours stops him, and Ghetsis the evil "Take over the world" part. Both games take place is a Japanese view of a rural-urban mesh of America. The animals and people thrown wild by Giygas' influence are the wild Pokemon and Trainers, but in this case it's natural. The castle N summons at the end of the game, connected to the League, is the equivalent to Mount Itoi. This time, however, Giygas is stopped at the top of Mount Itoi, so Mother 2 and Mother 3 never happen.
Alomomola and Emolga were originally supposed to be evolutions of Luvdisc and Pachirisu......and after they decided not to have evolutions from previous generations, they left them in for some reason. Emolga was probably let in because they needed to have a Pikachu expy of some sort.
There is no Game Corner in Unova because...Given that it's partly based on New York and such and not Las Vegas. Maybe there will be a Las Vegas-styled region in the third game or something.
You know where those abused Pokemon N grew up with came from?Ghetsis and his lackeys tortured them themselves. How else would you get a easy supply of abused Pokemon on hand to show your son? You'd make your own. This would be within his character.]] You're welcome.
N's final thought will be "Ghetsis had a somewhat accurate view of the problem, but a totally insane view of the solution."
Ghetsis got his "underleveled" Hydreigon from the same kind of machine Team Rocket used at the Lake of RageHe's certainly not above ripping off other people's plans, see Genesect's backstory and compare it to (anime) Mewtwo's, and what we know about him confirms that he'd do anything for power. Chances are that he somehow got his hands on the plans and forced his Zweilous to evolve against its will, possibly turning it into a rampaging machine of destruction in the process.
Team Plasma's plot is a metaphor for arms controlWhen guns are illegal, only criminals will have guns. Ghetsis flat out admits he intends to conquer the undefended populace.
The Menger Sponge that N wears is a form of Mind Control....by Ghetsis.
The characters of Unova run a Hits-of-the-80s tribute band on the side.It would explain all the '80s Hair and why a lot of the character designs have an eighties feel to them. And it'd just be awesome.
The characters mentioned in the WMG above this one are the Street Performers.
The civilizations that built Relic Castle and Dragonspiral Tower were founded by the brothersDuring their fight, they rallied armies to their side who later became those civilizations. Each of these civilizations held one of the stones, and each one seems to fall in line with what one of the dragons represents. The Reshiram brother founded the one that built Relic Castle (They are rather naturistic, building out of stone, eventually coming to worship a Pokemon such as Volcarona (Possibly because Reshiram was no longer there)). The Zekrom brother led the ones who became the builders of Dragonspiral Tower (It's a rather Babelesque tower reaching towards the heavens, and contains Golett, whose Pokedex entries state that it is thought to be artificial). After the battle that reverted the dragons to stones, each civilization recovered a stone, either the stone of their leader or the stone of their enemy, depending on the version.
Ghestis wants to take over Unova not just by taking everyone's Pokemon away from them, but by destroying the economy.Think about it. Pretty much every item up for sale is related to Pokemon and Pokemon training in some way. There are huge corporations dedicated to Pokemon research, the creation and development of healing items and stat-increasing items, not to mention that with the lack of transporation in all the regions, it could very easily be that people rely pretty heavily on Pokemon for transportation, moreso than cars and boats and trains. If people could no longer own, train, and battle Pokemon, Unova would just completely fall apart. The scientists who develop Pokeballs and TMs and potions would be out of jobs. All the characters who work in Pokemon centers and in markets that sell Pokemon items will no longer have work. Without Pokemon to use Fly and Surf, it will be harder for people to get around, and maybe even for items and mail to be delivered. (remember that Wingulls are often used to carry mail over long distances). Gym leaders and champions and everyone who works for them could no longer, well, work. Owning all the weapons gives you a lot of power, but you become even MORE powerful when you have all the weapons AND the region you rule is in a state of disaster where people can barely survive, much less be able to stage a revolt against you.
Unova = CapricaLook at the prevalence of octagons and hexagons everywhere in the game. Now go watch any episode of the reimagined version of Battlestar Galactica, or its prequel Caprica. Look at the octagons and hexagons everywhere. Does it remind you of anything?
In the inevitable Gray/Grey version, Lenora's apron will be 100% gone from every version.Just like how Registeel's edited German sprite in Diamond/Pearl was put into all versions of Platinum, Lenora's sprite will be missing her apron. The revised artwork has it slung over her shoulder and the American dub of the anime edited out her apron, so naturally, this is just the next step.
The third version will feature a double-battle alongside N against someone.Well, we got one with Silver in the Gen 2 remakes...
The Mummy Ability caused a Zombie Apocalypse.And that's how the the Relic Castle's civilization was wiped out. One by one, all of the people were turned into Yamask and Cofagrigus. The Sigilyph outside don't stick to the area because they don't know what to do anymore; they stay there because the last command given to them was to stop any of the infected from spreading the Mummy curse. How this all started, I'm not sure. Perhaps a pharaoh with a major god complex did something to turn into the first Cofagrigus upon death so he could remain among the living. Or maybe the people of the Relic Castle attempted to give themselves the powers of Pokemon, and were completely turned into them as a curse. Also, this means all of the tourists going in an out of the castle and people who own a Yamask or Cofagrigus have the potential to cause a much more widespread and possibly uncontainable Mummy apocalypse.
White Forest/Black City represent Heaven and Hell, respectively.Rated E versions, of course. Think about it; White Forest is a lush place that's prospering with Pokémon, and the people there are nice. Black City, people here hunger for money, power, and whatever they can get their hands on. ...Okay, heaven and Hell might be too literal of a term, but I'm thinking more on basis. White Forest is a place of virtue, and Black City is a place of Sin.
Ghetsis is a fan of Wicked Cultured.He certainly looks the part with his bitchin' robes, and using Unovian themes. I bet he'll be elegantly sampling the finest wines while he feeds his prisoners to his Hydreigon...
If N had succeeded in separating people and Pokemon, things would have gotten much worse for Pokemon.I'm talking about Crapsack World levels of suck. In the wild, battles would be matters of life and death instead of just sports. There would be no potions or Pokemon centers to instantly heal anyone who gets injured. Vulnerability to disease would be vastly higher with no manmade methods to treat them. Encounters with something like even a little Weedle could prove to be deadly because of their poison if you're not a Steel type or can't find the right berry. And if Genesect's past of being feared as the most powerful hunter ever is any indication, god help you and everyone you know if you ever encounter a pseudo or real legendary who's in a bad mood. Really, humans at their very worst are only the Lesser of Two Evils compared to what life would be, and was, like without them.
Mewtwo will appear in Unova.As an event or catchable Pokémon. Hey, he appeared in New York at the end of Mewtwo Returns, and Unova is supposed to be New York.
The eighth Gym battle in the Best Wishes Anime, and perhaps the third version of Pokémon Black and White, will be a double battle between Iris and Drayden.Both of the eighth Gym Leaders are version-exclusive, so the Third Option Adaptation will have them both.
Gamefreak is trying to generaterate controversy (and sales) in the States.It could explain Lenora's and to a certain extent, Cottonee and Whimsicott's designs.
Iris is an alien.You guys had it all wrong when you guessed what race she was.
We will see what made Ghetsis the man he is.And it'll turn out he started as a nice kid. However, it won't be used as a Freudian Excuse. Rather, it will be used to show just how bad he's gotten, and possibly, make his current behaviour even worse by comparison.
The 8th Gym leader will be Drayden's Wife/Iris's MomTo make one happy family
The Scientist in the transfer lab isn't French, he's actually the 10th DoctorI mean come on! He says Allonsy and Moto Bene, and even nines catchphrase, Fantastic! What he's doing in the Pokémon world? I don't know, his Tardis crashed or something...
The reason why TMs are reusable in this game is because the player jailbroke themGot the idea from this fanfic. Because people here in the States jailbreak their I-Pods and I-Phones all the time. So why wouldn't they do so for something way more useful like a TM?
Pokemon Black and White is an anti-communist allegoryHumans represent capitalists and political leaders, while Pokemon represent workers. Team Plasma is thus obviously a group of revolutionary communists, led by the charismatic N, the face of the organization. However, it is secretely led by Ghetsis, who wants to rule Unova and to be the only one with access to Pokemon, like communist dictators such as Stalin or Mao were the only ones to rule over all workers (and in fact, their rule has been called "state capitalism" by some).
Pokemon White and White 2 are the true story. (Black and Black 2 are false)The "Pokemon White" line of games are the true story that actually happened, and Black + Black 2 are a false story. The ancient story of the hero allying itself with the regal, Pure-White pokemon Reshiram to defeat the daunting, Deep-Black Zekrom, inspiring N to seek out this graceful Pokemon which is considered a force for good. Of course, The player picking up the sinister-looking Zekrom and having to prove their own point, that things aren't always obvious who is good or evil, right or wrong, black or white.
