Back to Pokémon With Pokemon crossing over with Nobunaga's Ambition of all things- even getting a worldwide release despite one half of the game being Japan-exclusive- anything's possible. Cast your votes!
Ash is an reincarnation or alternate universe equivalent of The Other.In Doctor Who, The Doctor has been revealed in the expanded universe to be the reincarnation of one of the founders of Time Lord society. Ash and The Doctor have quite alot in common. Both have traveled with female companions who tend to leave him to do their own thing. Both of them have a sentient companion that they may or may not understand (Pikachu/The TARDIS) and who is prone to disobeying. Both of them have also traveled with a male companion who's most famous trait was hitting on people (Brock/Captain Jack Harkness). Both of them tend to be very rebellious and stubborn, with Chronic Hero Syndrome. Both of them are normally kind, but can get unkind at times. Both of them have died and come back from the dead. Both of them change their look from time to time (though, The Doctor's change is a bit more drastic). Both of them are normally non-romantic (though 9 and 10 have been very, very romantic). Both have been played as The Messiah and both have saved the world. Also, neither of the age. Ash may not be a Time Lord, but he is at least the reincarnation of one.
Ash changes his name and joins the military.He joins under the name of Michael J. Caboose.
Dawn is this universe's Key.Because the Name's the Same. And why not?
The contest participant in Gen IV named Jorge is Jorge.We never actually saw Jorge die, so perhaps a mishap in slipspace sent him into the wrong dimension (remember, Slipspace is an alternate dimension itself) and he crashlanded in Sinoh. His kindheartedness made him good with Pokemon, and he quickly took to being a trainer. Instead of getting back into violence, though, he chose a more non-violent option, contests.
It takes place in the same world as Narutaru...
It takes place in the same world as Half-Life...After the Black Mesa Incident, some of the Xenites interbred with the local wildlife. Some of the Xenite characteristics were passed on. After mayn cycles of this, we have our modern-day Pokemon!
The Pokemon universe is a Daemon World. Think about it. The people in this world just casually accept these creatures with terrifying powers. The truth is far more sinister. They are actually being deluded by Slaanesh into thinking his Greater Daemons are under their control, whilst these daemons are feeding of their emotions.
Ash's father is...Ash J. Williams. You see, Ash at some point ended up in the Pokemon Universe, met Delia, and Showed her his boomstick. He then had a crazy adventure, saved the Pokemon world from the Deadites, gunned down lots of deadite Pokemon, said goodbye to Delia, and jumped through a portal back to his world. This is too awesome not to be true.
The player character in Ruby/Sapphire is Kevin Costner
Pokemon is the future of the Fallout WorldThe nukes changed the landscape, making the world look the way it does. Also, both have different science, and the Pokemon is radiation + animals. The option to make Harold spread his seeds in FO3 is canon. Rare Candy is basically a pill full of rads. Also fits the idea of always having some idiot become a hero.
The Pokeverse is The Nostalgia Critic's hated things put in one to keep him saneThink of what he's subjected to. Steel. Batman and Robin. THE ADVENTURES OF SONIC THE HEDGEHOG! The universe almost was destroyed by him reviewing Pokemon: The First Movie, but he hated it, so we were saved. It has every last thing he hates in one because it is his peeves embodied.
Pokemon is the Star Wars galaxy's future/present.Exactly what it says on the tin.
The Pokemon world is a Noah's Ark-like mission from the Star Wars Universe.So far there are 493 Pokemon known. And at the beginning of Giratina and the Sky Warrior the announcer states that there could be perhaps thousands of Pokemon. These could all be populations of unknown worlds in the Star Wars universe, and near the destruction of the planets part of the population is sent on a ship to the Pokemon world. Mew could've been the one species that all Pokemon evolved from, including the other species such as humans. (Goes along with the Humans being Pokemon theory below.) Arceus could just be an embodyment of The Force as a whole.
The Pokemon world's Ditto is either a distant evolutionary ancestor or a descendant of the Kirby race.Both of them are pink and gooey; Kirby just has a more solid form. Kirby is less able to copy an opponent than Ditto does, suggesting that the Kirby race may have slowly evolved into more fantastic and potent powers like completely transforming into an opponent. The Shiver Star in Kirby 64 has long been known to be our Earth—perhaps in our most recent Ice Age. Some members of the Kirby race may have found themselves on the Shiver Star and stayed there.
Alternatively, Kirby's world is far in the future of our own, and Ditto may have evolved beyond its need to fully copy an opponent to defend itself or hunt, shedding its once-necessary amorphous form. The descendants instead gained the ability to eat anything...
Pokemon are highly specialized evolved forms of Transformers from the planet Cybertron.This would explain why they "evolve" into different forms and why they fit so well into Poke Balls. It also explains their breeding habits: The females "build" an exact replica of their smallest form (usually); all the males (or asexual breeding partners) are required for is the Spark which, aside from powering up the baby Pokemon, gives it some of its attacks! The breeders' ignorance of this could come in two ways:
Pokemon are native Cybertronian wildlife that has been relocated.The battle for the power-enhancing Mini-Cons reawakened Unicron and nearly destroyed Cybertron. With their incredible powers and combative yet easily-trainable natures, the Pokemon certainly seem as if they could be the center of a similar problem. The noble Autobots certainly couldn't commit genocide; the only solution would be a force migration en masse. What planet is known for conditions where Cybertronian life can survive and prosper, but hasn't developed the technology to notice the ships that would deliver the creatures? Why, Earth!
Pokémon are the Chtorr.Chtorr are artificially created life forms made by some unseen alien race to outcompete native life and terraform the Earth to suit their own biology. This is backed up by one of the mangas, which explicitly says that all Pokémon are different expressions of the same DNA. This deals with the 'hard coded future evolution of Mew' problem (see below): Mew is the 'seeder' Pokémon and has the equivalent to all ecological niches preloaded in its DNA. This also explains why new and stranger Pokémon are constantly appearing from nowhere and why non-Pokémon animals have become almost nonexistent. Earth is losing.
The whole show is a hallucinated attempt by Shinji of Neon Genesis Evangelion to try and preserve his own happiness and sanity.Shinji = Ash, Asuka = Misty, Ryoji = Brock, Gendo = Professor Oak, Misato = Delia Ketchum. The Pokemon in general are ways to avoid both fighting and death (Pokemon only "faint", and they fight each other rather than Shinji having to fight), and the pretty countryside is a way to placate Shinji. Note also that, as time passes, Pokemon designs look more and more like Angels — would you be surprised if Deoxys, Palkia, or Regigigas attacked Tokyo-3?
Pikachu is like Yubel from Yu-Gi-Oh! GX: the real "boss" over Ash, and insanely jealous of anyone and anything that gets between their relationship.Pikachu is the only Pokemon Ash doesn't even hint at getting rid of (unless you count that one time when Ash decided to leave it with a tribe of wild Pikachus - but his refused to stay); he's perfectly willing to let go of or shunt to Professor Oak's lab any other 'Mon he captures, regardless of how long he's known them. Plus, Pikachu has no compunctions with letting its trainer know what it thinks of any decisions Ash makes with a well-placed Thunderbolt, which Ash has grown a tolerance to. (Note that he never fights back against this.) And it's also not above putting Ash's other Pokemon in their place. Thus, Ash is clearly Pikachu's, and not vice-versa.
Pikachu is Ash's daemon.A daemon is like an animal that represents a human's soul. When a human touches another's daemon, the humans get a nasty tingle. Humans and their daemons share a psychic link. The front-view for a Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Pikachu looks a lot like Ash, Ash and his Pikachu share facial expressions, and the last time Ash was turned into a Pokemon, it was Pikachu. Also, Pikachu gives Ash a bit of a "tingle" sometimes.
Ash is Jesus.Think about it:
Ash's true dad is Captain N: The Game Master.During the late 1980s, Captain N was hopping around the video game multiverse when he had amnesia one day while accidentally dropping into the Pokemon universe (which was then totally unexplored to his buddies). He met Delia; they made sweet love to each other, and Captain N was summoned back home the following day with no memory of the event. Delia only found a way to contact him many years later, when the Pokemon world was officially added to the Nintendo empire in 1996.
The world of Pokemon is the future (present?) of The Flintstones.Consider: the world of Fred, Wilma, Barney, and Betty is full of seemingly sentient creatures of all shapes and sizes who are all too happy to be suborned by humans and who are used in a variety of tasks. These creatures can all talk; but none of the humans seem to hear or understand them, which suggests that, like the latter-day Pokemon, they are not using human language.
Pokemon evolution is powered by Spiral EnergySpiral Energy is the energy of evolution. And Pokemon that evolve tend to gain mass, which has to come from somewhere. Also, the Galactic Bomb uses a large amount of energy, which apparently comes from Pokemon Evolution. An additional thought This Troper had is that since the legendary Pokemon don't evolve, they're kind of the equivalents of Anti-Spirals, sent to keep the Spiral Energy of the rest of the world in check.
The entity who created the Pokemon is the same who created the Mogways and GremlinsBased on the Gremlins novelizations, my fanon backstory for the Pokemon was this: Mogturmen, an alien god, wanted to create the perfect race of creatures, a race of being that would be adorable and help humanity coexist in peace. On his first try, he created the Mogways. Unfortunately, since nobody gets its right on the first try, the Mogways were flawed (ie. the whole "tunrning into Gremlins" thing). Since he couldn't just leave them there, he sent them to Earth anyway. At the second try, he created the Pokemon, and was satisfied with the results. He also sent them to Earth, and that is how Pokemon were created.
Sabrina is the female version of Anthony FreemontI always had that impression.
Almia is Magvel in the distant future.(There are spoilers for Fire Emblem 8 here, but I don't want to put the whole thing under a spoiler tag, so consider yourself warned.) The sheer number of similarities is frightening. For example, the Shadow Crystal behaves almost exactly the same way the Dark Stone did, indicating that Fomortiis is still inside of it. That would explain why Blake Hall did a Face-Heel Turn when he was exposed to it (just like Lyon). That would mean that the three gems are the Sacred Stones—and in fact they serve the same purpose in So A that they did in FE8, by stopping the power of the Shadow Crystal/Dark Stone. The Styler upgrade at the end of the game that draws power from the gems works the same way as the sacred weapons did, because it can capture 'Remo'd Pokemon like the weapons did +10 damage to monsters. Finally, many attacks look uncannily like magic (fire pillars look like Elfire or Forblaze, ice pillars are Fimbulvetur, roselia's yellow petal storms like any light magic, darkrai's attacks like dark magic...).
Pokemon is the Discworld in the future.Astfgl in
Pokemon are either a massive phylum of Mushi, or organisms affected by them.They have very bizarre biology, and there are cases of earlier Pokemon such as Grimer and Voltorb being created from nonliving things. Porygon was a result of a new breed of computer-based Mushi, and the evolved forms were humans trying to play with it's genetic code because they had the most thorough understanding of it.
Ash is an avatar of Vishnu.In Hindu Mythology Vishnu is the god of sustaining creation. To this end, he incarnates himself as mortal avatars, typically blue skinned, who become heroes, slay demons, and turn people to the path of righteousness, etc., etc. Ash would seem to fit into this, minus the blue skin, of course.
Link is Ash's fatherWe don't know what happened to Link after The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, and we know that the events of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker take place in Lo Z's alternate timeline, so it's possible link found his way to Kanto (either via black hole, or maybe Hyrule is just a little behind the Pokemon universe technologically), fell in love with Delia, got her pregnant, and perhaps was whisked away from her when his homeland was once again in danger. She never says much about Link, as she never understood why he left her to rase a child all alone.
Poke Balls are technology inspired by the TARDIS.I've heard once, when it started airing in Cartoon Network, that Poke Balls are much, much larger at the inside than at the outside. Just think how they could put an Onix, or a Steelix in a Poke Ball; there would be only two ways, and one of them (shrinking) would probably transform Onix and Steelix in useless (and dead, for that matter) "Diamondixes", by the compression factor. So, the technology they developed might mean that there is a Time Lord roaming around (and he probably is Ash's father).
Building off of the above...The Looker from Gen IV is another Chameleon Arch modified 10, this time with plastic surgery added. However, being companionless, he decided to keep some of his personality intact (most likely to avoid eating any pears) and integrate himself into the police force to continue to help others. In fact, he may have become the Looker to die, which will be foiled sooner or later. Someone stumbled on his TARDIS and was able to use it to access the Time Lord Technology of making something in a pocket dimension. However, whoever this is, he couldn't manage to make it as simple, so you have to be teleported in rather than easily walk in, hence the red light-ifying. resemblance◊ is almost frighteningly apparent. Granted, Caitlin can walk and see, but she does spend a lot of her time in a fancy chair, is (or at least is treated like) royalty, and is also tended to by a well-dressed caretaker (though, rather than a maid like Sayoko, she has a male valet, Darach). Just how one could have gotten into the other's universe is anyone's guess, though.
Ash's Pikachu has been hit by the Destiny Plume and knows its days are numberedEither before being captured or while in captivity, a destiny plume-like artifact was invoked on Pikachu - it gained immense power, but when its 'battle' is over, it'll kneel over and die on the spot. When it bonded with Ash, utilizing its powers in the process, its fate was decided - its 'battle' is helping Ash become a champion, but after that it's an express one-way ticket to hell. That's why it's powerful enough to override resistances and immunities, but still loses fairer matchups - if Ash won a Pokemon League, he'd consider himself a champion, and it's over for Pikachu. Pikachu, when called in as the inevitable last stand, subtly throws the match to prolong its life (and, depending on how selfish it may be, possibly its time with Ash).
Pokemon are Hollows.There are a couple of theories for this.
Sanae Hanekoma is Ash's Father.He can hop around alternate universes. And this troper wouldn't put it past him to bang a quick one and go.
The Distortion/Torn/Reverse/That Place Where You Catch Giratina In Platinum World is the Pokemon world's version of the Wyld.A realm outside of the normal world, where the normal laws of physics don't apply? Sound familiar, anyone? Clearly, the Distortion World is the primordial chaos from which the world was forged. Cynthia and Cyrus are incorrect in assuming that it is the twin of the main Pokemon world; what little resemblance it has is due entirely to its proximity to the Pokemon world. Basically, you visited the Pokemon world's Bordermarches, or possibly the Middlemarches. Cynthia's assumption that Giratina is the only creature there is also flawed; it's just that, as stated in its Pokedex entries, it was banished there from the normal world, and is thus the only recognizable inhabitant. The indigenous inhabitants probably aren't nearly as comprehensible. This also means that Giratina is not some kind of cosmic balance—it was banished due to being a troublemaker, and Cyrus's screwing with time and space gave it an opportunity to return, causing a Wyld incursion in the process.
Pokemon are Akuma evolved into many different formsThis ties in to an earlier apocalypse theory. A long time ago, a massive war wiped out a lot of people. Then, the Millenium Earl appeared and offered to bring back the many dead. The grief-stricken people accepted. Half of the populace died from the Akuma scourge created. The Earl, satisfied with the chaos and destruction, left the same way he came. The humans knew they were direly outmatched by the Akuma. So they created new technology to control the Akuma rather than destroy them. It was a revolutionary type of Innocence, a Capture Type, able to be mass produced for all humans available to use. In fact, even in the modern day it is mandatory to have a Capture Innocence on you, as the Akuma, even through the years of peace, are still vicious. It was created like a ball to capture powerful Akuma and bend them to a human's will. Many years later, evolved Akuma are involved in games of strategy and skill meant to simulate battle, but without death. The Elite Four of each region are Noah who escaped their master. So yes, in the end of game canon, you turn out to be a Noah.
Gyarados and Venomoth are somehow relatedVia Hot Skitty-on-Wailord Action, both species split off and now the only remaining trace of their common ancestry is the forehead trident that Gyarados◊ and Venomoth◊ share. By that same logic, we also have Venonat/Butterfree and Venmoth/Paras (the eyes).
Ash has been playing the Reaper's Game for the past decade.We already know that Ash has already died before. While Shibuya's game is one week long, that is no guarantee that all games are. Team Rocket are clearly the Harrier's in charge (although they suck at it, due to not possessing the pins necessary to Erase Ash) and the Pokemon are Noise called by one of Ash's pins (since Pokemon were what he was connected to in life). Since the Composer of this Game set Ash the mission of becoming the best at using his pins with no time limit (possibly hoping that Ash could eventually replace him as Composer), Ash has been incapable of aging or returning to the RG. His friends have been fellow Players, who haven't had the same mission and as such have eventually returned.
Arceus, Dialga, and Palkia are really just a metaphor......for the Trinity of WMG! Think about it. Arceus is the metaphor for Haruhi Suzumiya, as they are both the Creator Gods. Dialga, the God of Time, is a Time Lords (the Adamantine Orb is it's TARDIS, just to let you know). And Palkia, the god of Space and molder of shapes, is Shinji Ikari, proven because Shinji can take away a human's shape (aka their AT Fields).
Pokemon are an offshoot of DigimonLet's say a distant future, or even After the End version- after all, Pokemon can be transferred just like digital data, they evolve into different, stronger forms (though permanently) and have a tendency to bond with children. As a tradeoff to permanent evolution, their evolved forms are less powerful and not all of them can do it. The Legendaries are the last remaining Mega-level Digimon in Shapeshifter Mode Lock. Possibly the whole universe takes place within the Digital World... or not...
Alternatively, both Pokemon and Digimon are offshoots of the Shin Megami Tensei Multiverse.While This Troper never had the opportunity to play any of the games, the Older Than They Think Trope Page states that the first game (and the novel that inspired it) came years before either of the two franchises exsisted, and a quick look at this Gaming Diary shows that in the early Digimon games, Jogress evolution (or DNA Digivolution as it is known outside of Japan) was supposed to be permanent, just like demon fusion in the SMT games. Also, far more Digimon resemble mythological creatures and entities than Pokemon do, and they are summoned in a way similar to the Demon Summoning Programs used in SMTI. As for Pokemon, many of the earlier WMG's pointing to a post-apocalyptic scenario can be adapted to the world of the first two games to some extent, as far as This Troper knows.While the evidence is rather light because This Troper has only neighboring Tv.Tropes and Wikipedia pages to rely on, this is still a rather compelling theory.
As a corollary to the above WMG, Ash is AlephThis has much less evidence for it than the above post, but this is also a compelling scenario. Can anyone guess why?
Ritchie is Ash's Nobody.
Pokémon attacks are actually Bending
Officer Jennys are mass-produced XJ-9 units with human skinsJenny, Jenny. Serve and protect. Blue hair. It all adds up. They took the guns out because, with Growlithes, wouldn't need them, and to make people more comfortable.
The Pokemon World is the universe created at the end of AKIRATetsuo assumed the form of Arceus, while Akira himself assumed the form of Mew (so that he could still push around Tetsuo by assuming his form if need be). Tetsuo/Arceus, in his boredom created the Dragon Trio out of homage to his former Capsule buddies Kaneda, Kaisuke, and Yamagata, and somewhere along the line was compelled by Akira/Mew to allow Takashi, Kiyoko, and Masaru to assume the forms of Azelf, Mespirit, and Uxie and make them the universe's respective arbiters of willpower, emotion, and knowledge. The other legendary Pokemon are the forms assumed by the other 36 psychic children, with Mewtwo being the exception as he is the product of Tetsuo/Arceus' attempts to relive his life back in Neo-Tokyo (when you're a Physical God, it can't be that hard to use a few erm... shortsighted scientists as pawns). All other Pokemon are the product of Akira's prior failed attempts to create a new universe (once if we're going by movie continuity, twice if we're going by manga continuity), while the humans of the Pokemon world are all of the people sucked in by Akira's final Sphere of Destruction. As for any inconsistencies, what do you expect from a guy who went on a power trip back in his former life and turned into a giant fetus amoeba when his powers grew beyond his control.
In the sinnoh league, Paul will......lose to barry before he gets the chance to battle ash, then barry battles ash who beats him. ash beats the elite four and does home to pallet, but paul tracks him down a challenges him to a battle...and gets pwned by charizard
What is Diglett?Why do we never see any part of Diglett besides its head? Well, I'll tell you...but look at your own peril, lest you Go Mad from the Revelation. It's... an Eldritch Abomination! In particular, one that lives deep beneath the earth, and the part that springs up from the ground is merely a projection of its true form. So stop letting those horrid things screw your Wailords!
The Pokemon world has ridiculously high taxes and a very poor economyHouses with more than one room are a luxury, beds are almost unheard of, and only a few places have TVs. Not only that, but there are plenty of locations where there are more trainers and townsfolk than there are houses for them to live in, meaning that there is a problem with homeless people. The fact that being a Pokemon trainer is essentially betting on the outcome of cockfights certainly doesn't help, and we're not even getting into the seeming lack of available jobs and almost nonexistent educational facilities.
However, the Pokemon world also has hospitals that can cure any disease and injury and can be used free of charge. Healing machines can't be cheap, so obviously the money comes from somewhere. The Pokemon gyms are even worse, since many of them have expensive-looking puzzles and traps, and who knows how much money it takes to keep the various battle frontiers up and running? The only logical conclusion is that the "free" Pokemon-based facilities are supported by everyone's tax dollars, and the government is doing a very poor job using them wisely.
Conclusion: The Pokemon games have a really sucky economy.
The Pokemon League is the equivalent of Bread and CircusesIt manages to sustain itself even though it has seemingly no source of income, so it's likely it's run by the government itself in an effort to keep Pokemon trainers busy.
Ippongi Ryuta Is Ash's Father.Go ahead. Prove me wrong.
Pikmin are a type of miniture PokémonPikmin serve as the actual insects of the Pokémon world. They're tiny but they're just as obedient as their bigger relatives.
Beast Wars as seen in the Pokémon world(Just for Fun) Maximals:
Byron is the reincarnation of Kamina.He's certainly Hot-Blooded, Bad Ass, and Manly enough, and they're both muscular and they wear capes that are shredded at the bottom. Byron's obsession with piercing the ground instead of the heavens comes from being reborn into a world under the sky, where the underground is a vast, unexplored, mysterious place, like the surface in Gurren Lagann. He's still obsessed with digging, just in a direction that better fits the world he was reincarnated into. Additionally, he prefers steel-type Pokemon because they subconciously remind him of the mechs he used to pilot and battle with in his past life.
Pressing the button on a Poke Ball starts off a timed function. The anime always depicts that a button is pressed before the Poke Ball is thrown, and it pops open in the air. The opening thing is a mechanism that starts after a brief time limit, so the whole process is like throwing a grenade.
Pokemon attacks can be fatal, but are turned down in battlesWell, the anime demonstrates the "attacks can be turned down" part in one episode.
Glitch City is the Heart of Gold.They're both extremely chaotic, nonsensical locations which break the laws of physics.
Cyrus is the reincarnation of HikawaAs Aleph/Hijiri shows, reincarnations need not be in the same world in the mutliverse. Cyrus wants a world that is basiclly Shijima. Their character◊ art◊ shows them in roughly the same pose with black under clothes.
Bug Pokemon will become the Warhammer 40,000 Tyranids.One of the above WMGs gives the Bug>Psychic as having a Hive Mind and so being incomprehensible to Psychics. Fast forward to the 41st millenium or so, and the bugs have evolved even more powerful attacks (the "shadow in the Warp" that kills psykers). What happened to the other species of Pokemon you ask? Well, standard Tyranid procedure is to eat everything on a planet (including the other Tyranid), so...
The Ruby/Sapphire world will become the Mother 3 worldGo to Dewford and go into the far right house. There's a family inside consisting of a balding man, a brunette woman in a red dress, and a brown, vaguely dog-like pet. Does this seem familiar? Therefore, when the apocalypse happens, this family is saved by the White Ship, taken to the Nowhere Islands, and the woman becomes pregnant with twins. This would explain why all the Tazmilians are so in tune with nature - they're all former Pokémon trainers, or they're at least used to seeing Pokémon. Side effects of this theory are that the Ruby/Sapphire world is regrettably close to destruction, and that the worlds of Hoenn and Eagleland are somehow linked. The Franklin Badge has to come from somewhere...
Contesta and Sukizo are Time Lords.Hear me out.
Bob is Ash's father.No stranger than anything else here...
Bob is Ash’s father.See also “Ash’s father really gets around” on the main Pokemon WMG page.
Humans in the Pokemon World are a Spiral RaceHumans have access to spiral energy as opposed to the Pokemon themselves. However, the humans themselves gain no benefit from spiral energy. Rather, Pokemon feed off the spiral energy produced by humans, allowing them to spontaneously evolve, breed in non-conventional ways, and outright ignore the laws of conservation of mass and energy. This is also why trained Pokemon tend to be so much stronger than wild ones. Wild Pokemon, by comparison, breed like regular animals would and go through a slow metamorphosis instead of spontaneous evolution. Legendary Pokemon exist to ensure this bond between humans and Pokemon remains, as this more limited use of spiral energy (due to a hard cap on how far a Pokemon can evolve) is considered safe as opposed to the Spiral Nemesis that would come about if humans ever started using this energy for themselves.
Pokémons are the equivalent of Mario monstersHow do you explain Weedle? Also:
Kotone is Mario and Peach's daughterSelf-explanatory.
Jigglypuff is from DreamlandJust tell me he isn't...
Cross-Universe EvolutionsArbok evolves into Dragon Zombie
Spiritomb evolves into Charybis
Claydol evolves into SCP-173
Mew, and by extention Mewtwo, are part of Giegue/Gyiyg/Giygas' species.Look at them, then look at Giygas' form from Mother 1. Notice the similarities? In addition, Giygas' race are all psychic, just like Mew and Mewtwo. Mewtwo's genetic alterations could have been a quickening of the development process, hence its larger size.
The Pokemon universe is parallel to the MOTHER universe.See above. Also, there is a lot in common between the two series if you compare them including enemy equivalents. It also helps that some of the people who helped with EarthBound helped with the Pokemon series as well.
Flint is the Male PC's father in D/P/PtWhat, you didn't honestly think that they called the male PC Lucas by chance did you?
Ditto was the second Pokemon ever madeIgnoring the recent universe-creating and alternate-universe crap and going back to Mew. Mew is the common ancestor of all Pokemon, right? Wouldn't it be much easier to create an entire... all those Pokemon if there was one that could become anything very early on? Plus they're both pink.
Meowth is level 100.In one episode, Meowth mentions that he can't learn or use Pay Day because he spent all of his time learning how to walk and talk to impress his female friend year ago. I posit that Meowth used all of his EVs and EXP learning how to walk and talk, putting him at level 100. However, since none of his EVs are in battle-relevant stats, he's the most laughably weak level 100 Pokemon ever. This also implies that if he had a Heart Scale he could probably learn Pay Day and forget how to talk or walk.
Kangaskahn isn't born with a baby in it's pouch; that's a growth in the shape of a baby Kangaskahn.We have never seen that baby leave it's pouch, and this is the best solution to the "how can it be born with a baby in it's pouch" conundrum.
Related to the above: The baby kangaskhan is the actual pokemon, the "mother" is a giant "mech"The actual pokemon you control is the "baby" knagaskhan, which drives a giant bio-mech that looks like an older pokemon. All moves are used through this bio-mech, and so in effect you're controlling the mech, but through the smaller pokemon.
The Narrator for the entire series is...An older Ash Ketchum. Explaining his entire life in every detail, although, going by one of the above theories, he does occasionally sugarcoat his facts, though usually when the situation calls for it or when it just sounds cool.
Pokéballs are a product of Aperture Science.Rather than being converted to energy and stored in the balls, the Pokémon are clearly passing through a portal to a separate dimension where they live. Clearly, Aperture Science used their technology to develop these Pokéballs and is the supplier of the Pokémarts. Even the color scheme points to Aperture Science's hand. Take a look at the regular and premium Pokéballs and tell me that shiny smooth white/red/black coloring doesn't remind you at least a little of a turret.
Giovanni is a Goa'uldHe's obsessed with power, he wanted a custom-made extremely powerful Pokemon (for a host, perhaps?), and more than that, his voice actually has the Goa'uld voice effect in earlier seasons.
Ash's father is Guts....And Void and Slan are Gary's parents!
Kris or Kotone/Lyra is the Nobody of the otherIt's the same deal Kairi and Namine, having superficial similarities in appearance, but plenty of differences as well. I suspect whichever was the original had a bad encounter with a heartless, and voila! Instant look a like.
Ethan and Lyra are Ethan and LilahName's the Same.
Ethan/Lyra is being controlled by BaobaEven after he declares you the owner of the Safari Zone, he says, "Would you kindly keep paying admission?" You obey.
The Pokemon world is actually a planet in the Warhammer 40,000 Universe.They are all on a planet sheltered from the horrors of the Galaxy by a warp-storm (similarly to the Tau race who managed to develop without too much external influence). Pokemon themselves are either Lesser Daemons (possibly Tzeentchian - why else are they cooperating with the humans, if not as part of a larger plan), or local xeno wildlife. Team Rocket is actually a branch of the Inquisition that has forgotten its purpose after so many years without Imperial dogma to guide them. The Warp storm may be so important that Imperial, Heretic, and Xeno forces avoid it (placing Pokemon world somewhere in either the Eye of Terror, the Maelstrom, or the Storm of the Emperor's Wrath), and the planet's similarity to Earth can be explained by the early terraforming mankind did during the Dark Age of Technology. How's that for a Wild Mass Guess?
Mars is a slut of the highest kind.First, look at Mars's hair and Silver's hair. Since this is anime, and hair is everything in anime relationships, and their hair is the same, obviously Silver is her son. BUT, Roark looks very similar to Silver (Don't think so? Stick a mining helmet and a pair of glasses on Silver). So that means she had her way with Byron AND Giovanni. And we all know how much she likes Cyrus...
Arceus is Gallifreyan in origin.No, he's not a Time Lord. Rather, he's a Gallifreyan bioweapon, probably created at some point during the Last Great Time War. Let's be honest, given the horrors the Doctor mentions showing up there (the Nightmare Child, the Could've-Been King with his Army of Meanwhiles and Never-Weres) an elemental beast capable of manipulating space and time and creating lesser beings after its own style doesn't seem too far-fetched- in fact, that sounds like something tame compared to those ideas. The big piece of evidence for this theory? Take a look at the creation ritual in HeartGold/SoulSilver. Anybody else think those rings around Arceus look quite a bit like Gallifreyan script?
The world of Pokemon is on the far side of the Amestris of Fullmetal Alchemist from our world.Asplode your head. The worlds have greater and greater deviation from our idea of entropy and conservation of work as you go further down the line. The reason the Olympus Mons have gotten plot-relevant lately is because (aside from Mewtwo, canonically the strongest Pokemon apart from the specific baliwick of creating worlds or making flowers grow) of the Amestrian massacres leading to enough energy raining into their world to justify their awakening.
Volkner is actually Minato NamikazeAfter sealing away the Kyuubi, Minato didn't die, instead he was transported into an alternate reality and became an Electric Pokemon trainer.
Flint is actually ZabimaruIn an alternate reality, zanpakuto spirits are not sealed in swords, but they do have the same hair.
Arceus has a Philosopher's StoneHear me out. In the HG/SS games, when you take Arceus to the Sinjoh Ruins, you can get a Dialga, Palkia, or Garitina. When you select one, an alchemy circle is created, from which Arceus is "creating new life." If he can make something from nothing, he must be converting the souls in the Philosopher's Stone to matter, the same way alchemists use the Stone in FMA.
Zekrom is actually the newest model of Metal GearJust look at the thing, it wouldn't be out of place...
Looker's real name is Koichi Zenigata.Looker was based on him, and he did say that Looker is his code name. It would also explain why he speaks such broken English.
Cyrus has a daughter.Think about it. He needed someone to take over if he were to die/fail in his plan. So why not his daughter? Cyrus is his last name, and his daughter's last name. His daughter is a sleeper agest and will activate upon his defeat. She's been taught by her dad to follow in her career. Miley Cyrus is his daughter, durr. And he's Billy Ray Cyrus.
Stephen Stone knows Willy Wonka.Because he worked in his factory because HE IS AN OOMPA-LOOMPA. Look at his overworld sprite. Look up a picture of an Oompa-Loompa from The Movie with Gene Wilder. Can't allow you doing that!" Clearly, Wolf stumbled into the Pokemon world somehow, and was transformed into a human upon entry. This would also explain his Intentional Engrish for Funny, given he's from a foreign dimension.
The two brothers that ruled Ishhu long ago are Lucas and Claus
(from a legend in B/W) "Reshiram and Zekrom were originally one Pokemon. Twin heroes formed a new country together with the dragon where humans and Pokemon could live together. But one day the brothers began to fight over the direction that the country should move in. The dragon began to fight along with them, and its body split in two, Reshiram siding with the older brother and Zekrom with the younger. The two dragons would battle each other until Isshu was destroyed, so they were put to sleep."
N is a descendant of those twins.
Corn is Bernkastel.A bit of a cracky WMG here, but this would explain something. Corn managed to take on Pikachu with Hiyappu without getting hit even once. How so? If we go by game technicalities (That don't appear present in the anime), Double Team would've only raised Hiyappu's evasion by one. The fact that Pikachu managed to hit a clone of it? Corn willed the Miracle to happen; because the probability, while low, was still not zero. It helped set the rest of the battle into motion so he could kick Ash to the curb. How exactly he is related to Bern, is unknown. Cross-canon incarnation? Epileptic Trees strikes again? Take it as you will.
Magnetmites and Magnetons are actually GLaDOS's personality spheres that have somehow developed a mind of their own, gained magnets and anti-gravity levitation, and escaped into the wildThink about it: they look creepily similar. It could be possible one of Aperture Science's experiments was to give the spheres their own mobility and personality independent of GLaDOS; during or after the experiment, a few of them escaped into the wild, somehow managed to find a way to make more of themselves, and spread. For the other way round, check the Portal WMG page.
Most Pokemon access the Grid to power their attacks, while psychic types have built-in effectors.Also, the player and his/her parent(s) are Contact agents.
Pokemon takes place in the Xenosaga universe. Arceus was a bio-organic war machine similar to Deus that landed on a terraformable planet.Relating to theories of Arceus imposing as a God, and the pokeverse has a Magic A Is Magic A rule, the planet where Pokemon takes place is not even close to Like Reality Unless Noted. Rather, taking the apopcalyptic theories above in a new direction, the pokeverse wasn't designed to be: it was like a weapon disposal facility, to isolate Arceus. However, Arceus, still being sentient enough to function, created reproducing life forms such as Mew (which lead to pokemon, and if you will, human life) to eventually help repair itself when the time is right. Until then, it lies dormant to conserve power (until The Kid with the Remote Control comes along). Now where are the connections? Let's look:
The people of the Sinnoh Battle Zone love Iron Man.Why do you think they named a mountain after him? The (Tony) Stark Mountain.
Pokemon are related to Trolls.Why else would all the Pokemon Breeder trainers carry buckets? Also, this would explain the lack of explanation on the Pokemon breeding process (too confusing/complex) and why Pokemon who dislike each other can have an egg.
Cyrus is Calvin.When Calvin got to be a teenager, his parents worried about how he still lived in a fantasy world and apparent attachment to Hobbes. So, while Calvin was sleeping, they took Hobbes to the dump. After losing his childhood toy, Calvin became antisocial and nihilistic, because without Hobbes, he couldn't escape into the childish fantasies that helped him cope with reality (he had Asperger's). Soon, he became the Cyrus we know and love, but still resented his parents for throwing away Hobbes and ended up killing them, all while still a teenager. He then dyed his hair blue, changed his name to Cyrus and moved to the faraway Sunyshore City, where he fabricated a story about being an ordinary student (with Abusive Parents thrown in to get himself sympathy). The only person he told of his plan was his grandfather, who secretly moved to Sinnoh himself to keep an eye on Cyrus/Calvin. Cyrus started up Team Galactic shortly after moving to Sinnoh, and the four Commanders represent different people from his past life. Charon represents his father (which is why he remains The Unfought; Cyrus feels some kind of affection for his 'dad' and keeps him out of danger) and Mars and Jupiter are different sides of the Tsundere Susie. Saturn, Cyrus's right-hand man, is a personification of all the respect Insufferable Genius Calvin never got as a child. And Hobbes? Hobbes was burned in an incinerator after being thrown away - but turns out he actually was sentient, and he's reincarnated as a Zubat which Cyrus catches. This is why he manages to evolve it into Crobat despite claiming to be emotionless.
Archie is Captain Haddock.First off, Captain Haddock's first name is Archibald which is shortened to Archie. As some WMG state, the Pokemon world is a product of an apocalyse and there was a great disaster that caused the Pokemon to appear, but there as great human deaths and suffering in the process. As another WMG state, Tintin and co. (which includes Haddock) are immortals whom never age and that explains why no one ages even though the world around them change considerably. Tintin, the Thom(p)sons, Calculus, and Nestor perished in big apocalypse while the Marlinspike Hall was utterly destroyed. With everyone and everything important to him gone, Haddock returned back to being a sailor. In the meantime, he managed to capture a Zubat who became his only friend to replace everyone who was gone and so he treated the Zubat with extreme kindness, that explains why Archie has a Crobat. During his adventures in the sea he also managed to capture a Sharpedo who became one of his trusty Pokemon. His past being too painful for him, he shed off his old identity. He dropped his last name and began using his first name, Archibald, soon that was shortened as a nickname Archie. He stopped using his iconic Unusual Euphemisms. He also shaved a great deal of his beard and decided to adapt to the fashion sense of the people around him. Because he spent too much time in the seas, he grew to love the sea even more than his previous times as a sailor. His mind not exactly the most stable, he began to grow weird obsession with the ocean and believes ocean are good and land are evil. That is why he created Team Aqua which are dedicated to expanding the ocean.
Brock's mother is a witch. And she has Weasley blood in her veins.The first time Flint (Brock's dad, not the Elite Four) appears in the anime, he says that Lola is dead. However, in a Chronicles episode, she appears and her 'death' is never brought up - in fact, it's as if she was there the whole time. Sooo ... take a look at the episode in which we're told Lola is dead. It first aired in April 1997 - shortly before the Battle of Hogwarts. She could have, without telling her (Muggle) husband and kids she was a witch, altered their memory before setting off to fight in the Second Wizarding War, making them think she was dead (kind of like Hermione does at the beginning of Deathly Hallows). After the war, she returned to her family and adjusted their memories again so they thought she was there all along. As for the Weasley thing, that's mainly because she had so many children (a Weasley doesn't necessarily have to be red-haired, considering it's a recessive gene). Also, she married a Muggle and pursued a career in Pokémon rather than something wizardy, which is something a 'blood traitor' Weasley might do. Lola may or may not have told Flint and the kids she's a witch; but it's highly likely Brock's a Squib, which is why he was journeying with Ash rather than going to Hogwarts. The little 'uns are presumably too young to go to Hogwarts.
Dr. Weird Created Mewtwo.Think about it. He has a fairly advanced grasp of biology(if you call genetically splicing your roommate with a pork chop biology), practically shows no morals in regards to science, and is probably one of the few scientist who show no reservations about creating a super being. He probably got the funds to build Rabbot and his other creations from Team Rocket.
Guile Is Lt. Surge.His full name is Guile Surge
Missingno is The Ugly Barnacle.The titular barnacle is implied to be some sort of Eldritch Abomination and kills everything simply by existing. Encountering missingno can result in your game becoming corrupted or even crashed and having to be restarted, which in a sense is killing everyone in the game. Plus, missingno isn't exactly the prettiest of Pokemon around.
Missingno is the D-Reaper.Guess where that thing ended after its battle with the kids?
Manaphy is the Pokemon World's Abe Sapien.The same creature that turned Langdon Everett Caul into an Icthyosapien via a strange ritual transformed a simple Phione, an elusive deepsea creature, into the mighty Manaphy, rebirthing him in the process. What said creature has in store for both of them, no one knows.
Celebi is a Time Lord.This one is practically canon now. It travels through time; it possibly can regenerate into different forms and personalities (compare the Celebi from Time and Darkness to the Celebi in the game proper); it had a female and mortal Companion (the Notch-Eared Pichu); it even has a probable TARDIS (the Ilex Shrine).
The Pokemon World is an Alternative Timeline of Mother where Martha and George succeededThe Starmen/Pokemon are from space: Their forms come in all sorts of mooks and monsters, with just a certain number we know about. This explains why the Pokemon World is so close to our Earth, but different. Similar to what happened with the Ark in Mother 3, a world was created for humans to partner with Pocket Monsters, to help make more successes similar to Giygas. The humans are not aware that they are being used, as the Starmen make them understand they are in control. The Starmen's WM Ds use the Human training to increase their powers. Only the recent Mewtwo was considered a failure: Pokémon Ranger has shown an ancient civilisation had methods to produce Mewtwo just as good as modern science. Before, it was a regularly produced item which people thought was unique and the best for their own time (any sense that Mewtwo had ran around just a few years prior, only dying, was wiped... though this failed one, allows for a "we did it right now"). Earth actually exists elsewhere too, just similar to how people's minds have been wiped in the Ark, nobody really can think about the original Earth. Also the Ark of Mother 3 was created by the events that had the Starmen create Earth-2 for Pokemon. When the four heroes jumped back in time to kill Giygas at the dawn of time, things did change. It made Martha and George's original training of Giygas successful, prompting the events leading up to Mother 3. The people of Earth I momentarily remember the events that occurred after the ending, as time had yet to rearrange itself properly to have Martha and George successful parents. Even worse, Buzz Buzz may have been sent by Giygas after eating the Apple of Enlightenment specifically to allow his own defeat, and ergo his own success.
Ho-Oh's resurrection ability is the same process as RegenerationWhile Time Lords can do it on their own, Ho-Oh can trigger the process in any creature it chooses. That's why the eeveelutions that died in the Burned Tower turned into the Legendary Beasts— it wasn't deliberate, that's just what they turned into. ... it may also be why Kris is Lyra now.
Dialga, Palkia, Giratina and Mesprit are incarnations of The Beatles.OP would just like to point out that this theory sounded a lot better in her head. Soooo, if we take the Pokéverse verse to be an Alternate Universe, then we've got Beatles in our universe and Beatles in the Pokéverse (this is assuming there's some kind of equivalent of everything in our universe in the Pokéverse). Only the Pokéverse's Beatles are ... rather different. Rock gods in our universe become real gods in the Pokéverse. First up is the big two, Dialga/Palkia, or Paul/John respectively. Both are the main members of their groups. Dialga and Palkia govern time and space, can alter the fabric of the universe and are mascot legendaries. Paul and John, meanwhile, did most the songwriting, were the lead singers a lot of the time and were, well, in charge. And when they fight, it does not end well. When Dialga and Palkia fight, it destroys the universe. When John and Paul fight, it breaks up the Beatles. Dialga, by the way, is Paul, while Palkia is John (however delicious a Paul-kia pun would have been). See, Palkia is part Water-type. As the Beatles went on, it became apparent that John was the more experimental, laid-back of the two - more ''flowing'' (also rather symbolic, as John's ashes were scattered in the sea). Paul was more rigid and perfectionist, which is synonymous with Dialga's Steel-typing somehow. George is Giratina. For a start, there's Giratina's part Ghost-typing, fitting because George Harrison is, well, dead. Then, if we take a look at Giratina's roles in the Sinnoh games, there's some parallels with George's role in the Beatles. In Diamond and Pearl, Giratina hides out in Sendoff Spring and doesn't do an awful lot, much like the 'quiet' Beatle George. In Platinum, however, Giratina plays a major part in the storyline; towards the end of the Beatles, George wrote more songs and generally got more involved. (From this, you could say the events of Platinum parallel the Beatles' breakup. Giratina appears in the midst of Dialga and Palkia's fighting, obviously majorly pissed off, and opens a portal to the Distortion World, leaving Dialga and Palkia at a loose end. George appears in the midst of John and Paul's fighting, obviously majorly pissed off, and storms out of Abbey Road studios, leaving John and Paul at a loose end.) And, let's not forget Dialga and Palkia banished Giratina to the Distortion World, while John and Paul largely excluded George from the songwriting, so of course he became a tad reclusive. The whole Origin/Altered Forme thing also kinda fits. Altered Forme Giratina is mop-topped, quiet George, while Origin Forme Giratina, which we only see in Platinum, is unrestrained, outspoken, 'I-won't-play-at-all-if-you-don't-want-me-to' George (in other words, natural George). That leaves Ringo and Mesprit. Mesprit is not like Dialga, Palkia and Giratina. Mesprit is little, and while it is a legendary it's not as impressive as the other three. Much like Ringo. Mesprit also is the only one able the calm the main duo when they're biting each other's heads off. Much like Ringo (seriously. Paul McCartney said on a few occasions it was Ringo's influence keeping the Beatles together later on). Mesprit doesn't become that important till later on, when it calms Dialga and Palkia. Much like Ringo (Ringo didn't write a song on his own till the White Album). Finally, Mesprit is from a different 'group' than the other three (rather than being a god, it's a 'guardian'. Much like Ringo, who came from a different area of Liverpool to the other Beatles, and didn't join until rather later on, when John, Paul and George were very much established as bandmates. He also left a different band to join the Beatles. So, there you have it. Oh, and Brian Epstein is Arceus.
The Pokemon world runs on similar rules to the world of Fullmetal Alchemist.The Poke Balls have built-in alchemy machines, sort of like the Xingian alchemy tags the little kid with the panda uses for projectile alchemy circles, the Pokemon are transported by, instead of reconstructing their matter in a different shape, by reconstructing them in a different place, and the Pokemon themselves are superalchemists, and their food is an infusion of red water (that's why Ash got sick that time he tried to eat Pokemon food; sorry to everyone who thinks Lugia is his dad.) As for Pokemon eggs, the shell is just whatever material the Pokemon had handy at the time with a coating of concentrated red water on the inside, in order to hide the ghastly effects of an incomplete homunculus. This even accounts for why Pokemon only faint in battle: They know their own bodies well enough and have such fine control that they never die, they just pass out from the effort of keeping themselves together after the attack that takes the last of their hit points (and the Potions and Ethers are just different forms of red water
The Pokemon world is the result of whatever is happening in Civilization.Hence how real world locations are referenced but it looks nothing like the real world◊. Tokugawa just did well.
N and Princess Peach are related somehow.Thier hairstyle looks really simular.
Porygon is a DigimonIs has been described as a "Virtual Pokémon". It can physically travel into the Internet. It has no gender. "Gon" sounds very similar to "mon".
Missigno is TailsVideo evidence: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aeMgzJD24Eg
N is related to Shikieiki.Let us count the ways.
Meowth is a Youma.The whole "impress a female Meowth" thing was just a cover story. Because really, if Pokemon can learn to speak human language, why haven't we seen this from any other Pokemon besides lengendaries, and Meowth himself? Somehow, Meowth survived the final battle between Sailor Moon and Queen Beryl, and the Senshi spared him because he wasn't really that evil (for a Youma) and was too weak to be a threat. He ended up in the Pokemon world thanks to Sailor Pluto screwing around with the timeline.
James is actually from Felarya.That's why he keeps getting Pokemon that try to eat him; they remind of home.
Darkrai is Nightmare Moon.It's a character related to the moon that causes nightmares. Need I say more?
The Pokémon Universe is a recarcniation of the EarthBound universe, and Ash is a great-great x?? grandson of Ness.]] Think about it. When MOTHER 3 ended, the Pokémon World was born. Dr. Andouts made olden Pokéballs out of the design of the ASC and the story of Pokémon Black and White is similar to MOTHER 3. New continents were made, being known as Kanto, Johto, Orre, Hoenn, Sinnoh, and the Nowhere Islands became Unova. After that, Ness's grandsons kept having kids - starting from Ness and Paula - and all had PSI. One was Sir Aaron - who's PSI became aura. Then, some had PSI, some had aura. Ash's father had aura. Then met Delia, had Ash. Ash had PSI - he just doesn't know it - and has aura. That's why Ash keeps on re-reliving! Something from his body uses PSI Lifeup or Healing and he is restored! I just think this is plausible.
Jessie will become a mercenary for a demolition company.Her weapon of choice? A flamethrower.
James has Roman Zolanski as an alter ego.Minaj claims that Zolanski is a fabulous gay man filled with incredible rage that only comes out when she is angry. Beyond the common fandom that James is gay and fabulous, I can only imagine that following the same ten-year-old kid around for nearly a decade, with the same abusive teammates, continually getting electrocuted, would make someone snap pretty badly. The emergence of this alter ego might explain Team Rocket's proficiency in Best Wishes - Jessie and Meowth are trying really, REALLY hard to not get Zolanksi TOO pissed off, and are matching his angry, violent personality.
Ghetsis is Makarov
Pokemon, Digimon, Yu-Gi-Oh, Duel Masters, Beyblade and Bakugan happen in the same universe, but...
Cameron, the photographer, is the photographer from EarthBound.He got bored and went to the Pokémon universe to take pictures of random people with their Pokémon.
Evice from Pokémon Colosseum is a parallel universe counterpart to Dr Eggman from Sonic the Hedgehog.They look a lot like one another. Evice even has the glowing red eyes of the SATAM Robotnik. The only real difference in terms of looks is different clothes, being older and choosing to have his Badass Moustache apply to his scalp. Plus both of them like to tinker with animals(super-powered animals in Evice's case).
Hilda from Pokémon Black and White is a parallel universe counterpart to Sonic the Hedgehog.Here are the comparisons:Both are teens (Sonic is canonically 15, while fanon assumes Hilda's age to be 16.), both are badass (And both look extremely cool.), both are considered heroes in their respective universes, both have a stalker (N and Amy respectively.) following them and are paired with said stalkers in fanon, both have a childhood friend (Bianca in Hilda's case and Tails in Sonic's case.) and both left their homes for adventure.
The Pokemon universe is the same as the Mass Effect universe.Or at least an alternate version. Basically, ancient animals and organisms on Earth were exposed to element zero (either through experimentation by the Protheans or by accident) and evolved and mutated into entirely new lifeforms with incredible natural powers. At the very least, it would explain Psychic-type Pokemon, as they can be very similar to biotics in most cases.
N is related to L from Death Note.Think about it. We don't know how many people Ghetsis used before he got someone he could manipulate. L came before N, like they do in the alphabet. Now, the Death Note universe has no Pokemon. I'd suspect that, somehow, Giratina got involved and then L got warped into an entirely different universe.
The Pokemon world is actually several islands on the Grand Line from One Piece.It has unique creatures that seem to get 'discovered' in every region. You need a boat to get from one region to another. We all know from Groudon and Kyogre that the weather is freaky. There are places with magnetic anomalies - Mt. Coronet, anyone? Sabrina ate the Mind-Mind Devil Fruit, Meowth ate the Human-Human fruit, the humans are all Made of Iron. The Legendary Birds are the Big Good, so they would be the Admirals, what with Fire, Ice, Lightning. The dials from Skypeia are actually Helix fossils that still have power from their Omanytes. The Oshawott line are all Fishmen and Bouffalant is related to Brook.
Ash is an incarnation of the Eternal ChampionLike Elric he deserts his friends, and instead of turning in Team Rocket to the authorities, he simply sends them away, as if he's balancing the forces of law and chaos EC-style. It makes a bit more sense when you think of how archetypal his character is, and how interchangeable his friends are:
Jigglypuff is actually a Kirby.One of the Kirby (they're a species, not just a character, if you didn't know) went to an alternate universe because he was shunned by the other Kirby because he wanted to pursue music and wanted to train differently than the other Kirby. So, the Kirby went to the Pokemon dimension through a portal made by swallowing some new enemy,and taught itself how to attack and sing.
Looker is the Tenth DoctorI mean they look alike, they both save the world while trying not to hurt anyone, they both have been to more than one universe neither of them age, they fought against people who were going to collapse the whole of creation, and they both use things that are bigger on the inside :)
The Pokemon World is [[Tabletop Game/Warhammer40000 Holy Terraright after the rise of the Emperor]] The Emperor has just affirmed his hegemony on the world, but isn't fully in control yet. The Pokemon are a cross between the results of experiments in the Dark Age of Technology and Chaos Demons corrupted by the Emperor, and tend to obey to Humans because of this.
Cyrus will become Jyggalag.Cyrus wanted a world of perfect order free of emotion. That's essentially what Jyggalag's realm in Oblivion would have been like. Instead of simply being destroyed, the new universe Cyrus created becomes a Daedric realm within Oblivion. As Cyrus created it, he also has power over it. Based on the attitudes of Daedra cultists, the Daedric Princes seem to attract people like themselves, which would explain why Dyus worked in Jyggalag's library of absolute logic. The other Daedric Princes turned him into Sheogorath because he wanted to remake their realms in his image the same way he tried to remake the Pokemon World.
Alternatively, Looker is the Eleventh Doctor.Don't tell me you don't see Matt Smith in Looker's face.
The Mystery Dungeon universe is the result of the Mons playing SburbSomeone out there made the game, the Mons played it, they won and then repopulated in the universe they created. Said population was that of the Mystery Dungeon world. To extend from that, the meteor in the first pair of games was probably from the Reckoning of a future session that had to be destroyed because it arrived too early (if it hit, we'd have a doomed timeline). What purpose it served I do not know. On that note, the group of players who created the original universe from which the Mons came may have been some of us, and in the process of repopulating started the Training system to prepare the Mons for the game, knowing they'd play eventually. Gotta have good-quality players, after all.
Lysandre is in some way related to Leon Kuwata.Both happen to be spiky-haired redheads with beards. Maybe Lysandre is Leon's Mega Evolution?
Lysandre is I.M. MeenLysandre and IM Meen have similar hairstyles. Perhaps Lysandre was reincarnated as a bookworm-hating librarian.
Back to Pokémon
