Generation II Species Guesses
Wobbuffet's tail is its true body and vice versa.That's the reason why it has eyes, why it tries to hide in darkness, and why it unleashes Destiny Bond when it's attacked.
The Unown are Hive Minded tools of the primal forces of order.As opposed to the unknowable Eldritch Abomination that is Missingno., the Unown are the living tools of an unfathomable force that manifests itself as writing - the essence of knowledge and law. When alone, they are weak but capable of developing independent personalities. Together, they are incredibly powerful. They seem to be attracted to ancient ruins, and even the greatest minds of the Pokemon world are unable to fathom their true purpose...
The Unown are the Language of the UniverseCoinciding with the above WMG. Unown are weak individually, but together, they have great reality warping capabilities, as shown in the 3rd movie. And in the HG/SS Arceus event, Arceus uses a bunch of Unown to create a Dialga/Palkia/Giratina out of nothing. Or rather, to reprogram reality so another can be born. It's even possible that Arceus used the Unown to create/shape the universe in the first place. So, a being with enough power and knowledge could potentially use them to rewrite reality to their whims. The ancients in the Ruins of Alph were aware of Unown's power and based their language on them in an attempt to tap into that power.
Chikorita is a Pokemon equilivent to kittens.Particularly, by internet popularity standards.
The original forms of the Legendary Beasts were the three Gen I Eeveelutions.Three Pokemon perished in a fire in Ecruteak City. The were resurrected as Legendary Pokemon. What are the mascots of Ecruteak City? The Eeveelutions. What Pokemon have aspects of felines, canines, and vulpines along with a Fire/Water/Electric trio? Jolten, Flareon, and Vaporeon. That's right, the Legendary Beasts Raikou, Suicune, and Entei are the ultimate form of Eevees.
Johto General Guesses
Will is a girl in disguise.Or at least a hermaphrodite, I don't know. Proof? Look at these hips. These girly hips.◊
Mom is the GovernmentYour mom is a the government and you are a tax collector. You go around and force people to pay their taxes. Mom pays Professor Elm to give you a Pokémon as a bouncer to help protect you on your tax collecting. You send some money to your mom and keep some for yourself. Sometimes she will buy you an item and have a delivery man bring it to you. But the delivery men are in every Pokémart. She owns all of the Pokémarts and Pokécenters. The deliverymen are able to loiter around the Pokémart all day until Mom tells them to give you an item. You haven't seen your mom in days, but when you call her she asks you where you are and tells you how much money she has. She asks if you want her to stop taking the money, meaning she has enough money for the time being.
Jasmine is from Sinnoh.Not only do you see her at Sunyshore City in D/P/Pt, she also participates in Super Contests. The reason she says Sunyshore reminds her of home is because Olivine is where she moved, but she was born in Sinnoh. That, and her last Pokemon in the HG/SS rematch is Empoleon.
Jasmine and Caitlin are Sisters.First of all, just look at the two of them. Both of them have long brown hair. Both have similar builds and dress in the same style outfit. Both seem to have a streak of shyness running through them. Also, it would explain why Jasmine was in Sinnnoh during D/P/Pt, visiting her sister; the same goes for Caitlin in Johto along with the rest of the Frontier Brains in HG/SS. Also, Jasmine in general seems to be somewhat of a doer of good deeds. If she came from a rich family, she would have the money to help out like that.
Baoba makes Ethan/Lyra the owner of the Safari Zone as a tax dodge.Building a Safari Zone has to be a huge financial undertaking. No one would hand something like that over to anyone for free, much less a little kid, unless there was some subversive reason. And as owner, you never see a single dime of profit—it all still goes to Baoba. Hell, you still have to pay to enter!!! The "test" he gives is just a meaningless little thing to make a naďve 10-year-old think they've earned it.
Silver is 14 - 15 years old.A guy mistakes Red for him, who was eleven in FRLG. How could they mistake a 7 - 8 year old for an eleven year old? Possibly, Lyra and Ethan are that age too (they seem the same age as him). Also, possible back up, their heights and weights.
Silver's mother is either Rocket Executive Ariana or Lorelei of the Kanto Elite Four.Think about it, his red hair has to come from somewhere, and both of them have a very similar shade. So, I'm guessing that the situations could have gone like this:
Silver is the player's half-brother.Notice how your mother has brown hair, like Lyra, but where does Ethan get his hair color? The only important people with dark hair are Bruno, Koga, Giovanni and, uh....Yes. Plus, when you meet Petrel, he comments "Hmm, you're saying I don't look like Giovanni," or something to that effect. Either Giovanni is a wanted criminal (likely) OR he's the character's father, and he broke it off with your mother. No one brings it up because it seems mean to point out that your father is a notorious criminal.
The Kimono Girls are a heroic secret society working behind the scenes for a better tomorrow.
Johto is a post-apocalyptic wasteland.Think about it. The Kimono Girls are manipulating you to bring back their god, possibly to have it repair the damage to the land and revive the dead. (The three legendary dogs gave them this idea.) This is in HG/SS, so maybe the apocalypse happened recently. The Kimono Girls are pretty straight-forward, but let's analyze the rest of the land and make educated guesses. Tin Tower (where you meet Ho-Oh) features advanced technology in panels. Yet, most of the tower is old and run-down. Why are the floors so complicated and maze-like? To keep the unworthy from reaching the top? Or was it being rebuilt? Did something happen to destroy most of the inside and the monks had to rebuild? How come there aren't a lot of roads connecting around towns and cities? Take Ecruteak: to the west, bumpy paths and grass. Makes no sense, the way it's designed. To the South, a patch of grass, making people who have no Pokemon unable to get to Ecruteak. Either the Gym Leaders did this (see below), the townspeople became paranoid of other people and isolated themselves by destroying the roads, trade relations broke down, or some horrible natural disaster wiped away the roads and lands.
Proton killed the mother Marowak.It fits his Psycho for Hire, Combat Sadomasochist personality. It took place around, or a bit before, RGBY/FRLG and he looks no older than twenty five so he should have been in his late teens - early adulthood. If Ariana and Archer were admins during that period, why not him?
Youngster Joey isn't a Youngster.Rather, he's a Rich Boy, disguised as a Youngster. The evidence would be his Rattata, which, if one hacks the game code, has maximum IVs, something that can only happen through extreme luck, or complicated and extensive breeding (which would likely be too expensive for a Youngster to afford). Why he's disguised as a Youngster could probably be greed- losing trainers have to give away half of their money, which is significantly less for a Youngster than a Rich Boy.
Ho-Oh turned Kris into LyraSomehow or other, Kris was horribly injured and near death (if not dead). Ho-Oh happened to be in the area and revived her... though if indeed the Legendary Beasts were once Eeveelutions, then it's reasonable to assume that humans revived by Ho-Oh would change as well, both physically and somewhat mentally. (Also, this is most definitely how it should have happened in the manga.)
Victini caused the destruction of the Brass Tower.It was, in fact, created to be used in some ancient war between Poke-Pan and Unova, and proved to bring a swift victory on its first use. Because of its power, Victini was locked away, never to be used again in battle (until you come along). The people of Ecruteak City simply mistook its horrendous attack of pure blazing fury for something just as fast and just as fatal: a lightning bolt.
In the second generation, baby Pokémon weren't really newly discovered.They just hadn't classified them as a separate type of Pokémon. Before that, they just referred to Magby as a baby Magmar, Elekid as a baby Electabuzz, etc. After much scientific debate, they changed it.
Falkner's Father is KogaBecause wouldn't that be hilarious? Having him and Janine have a 'War' over their fathers without knowing its the same man? His promotion to the Elite 4 was a blessing, since it right between both his kids. How does he lead this double life? Ninja Powers obviously. Plus, Look at his Main Pokémon, Crobat. Poison AND Flying typed.
Pryce's after battle quote is a metaphor"When the ice and snow melt, spring arrives. You and your Pokémon will be together for many years to come. Cherish your time together!" The ice and snow is a metaphor for Pryce's life. He is old and acknowledging that his death is near. He's telling you to cherish your time with your Pokemon because, in his old age, he's seen many of his own Pokemon wither and die. He's just an old man who is satisfied with his life and is ready to die.
Whitney has a Southern Belle accentShe does have a dialect in the Japanese version (Osaka-ben I believe) but no translation has showcased it. The games didn't give Bill an accent in the translation so who knows what Whitney has.
If the protagonist of these games are ever stated it'll be LyraThe female protagonist is showcased in multiple official artwork, Lyra looks like Red (which would make the "your eyes look like his" dialogue people say throughout the game a double meaning), and it'd give a ratio of one male canon protagonist and one female.
Archer is related to Cyrus.Sounds like "Wild" Mass Guessing indeed at first, but there are a few reasons this could work. First, they both have similarly-colored hair, and people often use hair in the Mars-Ariana-Silver-Roark family guess. Secondly, as just mentioned, this isn't the first time someone's guessed that Johto and Sinnoh characters could be related. Thirdly, it's commonly accepted that Johto and Sinnoh take place at similar times; in Platinum, Cyrus is confirmed to be 27, and Archer at least looks like he's about early-to-mid 20's, so taking their likely-similar ages into account, they could very well be siblings/cousins. Oh, and they both have a Houndoom. Although Cyrus only has one in Platinum, not Diamond/Pearl, but Platinum is generally taken as the canon game anyway.
The two unnamed people in Olivine Gym in the remakes are part of Jasmine's familyShe's too shy to have taken on Junior Trainers. Based on their appearances, I'd guess they are her younger sister and her grandfather.
If Gold and Silver ever get remade again...Whitney's gym layout will be based on Jigglypuff in place of Clefairy, as Clefairy is now a pure Fairy-type in Gen 6, and Jigglypuff is Normal/Fairy. It would also be a good opportunity to throw off trainers who would start off with Fighting-type Pokemon.
Red died after losing to Gold/Ethan/Kris/Lyra.Red trained at Mt. Silver for three years. The shame of losing to someone who first became a trainer about a month ago caused him to commit suicide. The screen blacking out was just to hide that he jumped off Mt. Silver in shame. This is further supported by the remakes, where Red is standing right next to the edge of the top of Mt. Silver.
R/B/Y and G/S/C are an alternate continuity - but not originally.Unforseen messing around with the time machines Bill invented (possibly involving MissingNo.) corrupted spacetime. In order to prevent the corruption from spreading to the rest of the series, Fire Red and Leaf Green retconed them, thus quarantining the corruption (and, perhaps coincidentally, perhaps not, MissingNo.) and splitting them into their own parallel universe. Ph'nglui mglw'nafh MissingNo. G/S/C wgah'nagl fhtagn.
Bill's Time Capsule in Gen II messed up the timelines, which resulted in the events of the remakes.It explains any and all differences between the remakes and originals. It's also why the later games are incompatible with the older ones. Alternate timelines and all.
Misty's "boyfriend" that she refers to in Silver/Gold/Crystal/SS/HG is really Ash (Red)Her boyfriend was "late" or whatever, but really her "boyfriend" is Ash (Red) who is obviously up on Mount Silver. She wasn't waiting for a date, nor were they actually a couple, and she was there because she was sad because she still loves him and was depressed, wanting to be alone.
Cinnabar Island did not eruptIt was dragged into Glitch City by Missingno's influence. The only reason the island exists at all is because only the town and the volcano were sucked in, somehow sparing the Pokemon Center. Blaine survived because he was probably off the island at the time. Why? I dunno.
The eruption on Cinnabar is your fault.
Lt. Surge put the Snorlax blocking the Diglett Cave in GSCHe was tired of being owned by every challenger who had a Diglett/Dugtrio. Because, really, Poor, Predictable Rock is one thing, but living right next to a nest of your weaknesses makes you Too Dumb to Live.
Kanto and Johto are more polluted than the other two regions.Hence why there are more Poison-types in both regions. The game even says outright that a pond in Celadon City is polluted with Grimer. Also, there are more Grass/Poison Pokemon there, either because they feed on polluted water (notably, good places to find Oddish and Bellsprout are near the Power Plant and Cerulean City) or because they developed the Poison-type as a protection because Grass-types are otherwise easily poisoned.
Giovanni killed himself after Heart Gold / Soul Silver.All we hear after he leaves after the battle is a splashing sound.
Red is still the Indigo League Champion when you fight him.However, because Red is so young, Lance is the acting Champion - kind of like a regent. It's not clear if the GSC protagonist is now the Champion after beating Red at Mount Silver; does it count since they weren't at the Pokémon League?
Red and Gold/Ethan are brothers after all.Well... all we know is that they have different moms. Red and Gold are related through their absent father. Because obviously two insanely talented preteen Pokemon trainers can't exist in the same game and not be related to each other in some way.
Ethan looks like Red because he copied Red's style.Ethan spent his childhood watching the tv broadcasts of the Pokémon league fights and hero worshiped the champion. So, to be more like him, he wore similar clothes and got a similar haircut.
Giovanni wasn't the head of Team RocketAccording to Bulpapedia "The official Red and Blue guide from Nintendo Power, Giovanni was labeled to be a regional boss of Team Rocket" My guess is that in Red and Blue Giovanni planned to take over all of Team Rocket. But Red managed to stop him for reaching his goal.Come Gold and Silver a few rouge members of Team Rocket are trying to build a regional version of Team Rocket in Johto some of the higher ups in Team Rocket caught wind of this and they decided to use Gold to stop them from growing too strong by using Elm to act as a Pokémon professor(how else do you think he got the starter Pokémon?), because they are shown to have a mass following and just needed Giovanni to kick start things and the Celebi event tells you he was ready to rejoin them. Team Rocket is most likely still around.
Cameron the photographer is a former Team Rocket memberHe was most likely a recruiter for the Rockets prior to their inital disbandment, whiches explains why he has alot of spare team rocket uniforms, and when ever the player rejects the option of having their photo dress as a Team Rocket Grunt, the reason why he say "yeah nobody should dress like Team Rocket" is him rembering his dark past and when Team Rocket was serious business and when impersonating a Team Rocket member would of gotten you either arrested by the police, killed by the Rockets themselves or even getting recuirted by the Rockets becoming a Rocket for real. And when team Rocket took over Goldenrod City Cameron either fled so that he would not be hunted down and killed by his former comrades or got in his old uniform and hid himself amongst the Grunts until the player defeated Archer
Red and Leaf are the same personIt could go either ways: 1. Leaf is crossdressing as Red. 2. Red is transsexual, began his journey as Leaf, and transitioned sometime inbetween FRLG and HGSS.
If Leaf were to be the final boss at Mt. Silver instead of RedHer only difference in her team compared to Red would be that she would have Espeon in place of Pikachu. Her Espeon will be male, at Lv.88, hold no item and will have Psychic, Shadow Ball, Reflect and Quick Attack.
All of the alleged suicides happened, but the universe wanted to give them a second chance.Based on two other WMGs on this page. Some higher power resurrected both Red and Giovanni, because they are still useful elsewhere.
Alternately, they really are dead.Wherever else Red or Giovanni appear is just a person in disguise. Remember when Petrel was disguised as Giovanni?
Ariana and Archer are really Jessie and JamesIn the English version of both, they have names that begin with the same letter( A and J respectively), and while they have darker hair for Ariana and lighter hair for Archer, they share the same colours. Now with how Ambiguous age tends to be in Pokemon(and anime in general unless the character is really old), It's possible for the two to be older(and more competent ala Best Wishes) versions of Jessie and James (who if you recall, did exist in Pokémon Yellow).
